Change. Or not to change?

It’s been a busy year, but I had to squeeze in some time for one column before Monday’s municipal vote. No, I’m not going to tell you who to vote for, just so you can wipe your brow and go “Whew!” and blame the next four years on me. I do have some observations to [...]

Gone Girl a nice surprise

Gone Girl a nice surprise

Ok, I have to admit that Ben Affleck has turned into a good actor with a strong career which surprises the heck out of me. It could have gone otherwise. Most people wouldn’t recover from Gigli.

Smaller council, keep wards – yes we can

Smaller council, keep wards – yes we can

Yes we can downsize our cumbersome 16 member Council without changing ward boundaries. The two northern wards could together elect three councillors. Picton and its neighbouring Easterly wards could elect three.  And Wellington with its neighbouring Westerly wards could elect three. Our more compact 10 member council would have equal representation from each of three [...]

Thank you, County, for a memorable weekend

Greetings from the Corcoran and Simpson families from the Kingston area. A special thanks to the folks of the County for a Memorable Wedding Weekend Sept. 20-21. Following the ceremony at the old White Chapel, we enjoyed suds from Barley Days Brewery and fine hospitality at The Mill House on County Road 11. This was [...]

Guardians of the Galaxy is funny-smart

Guardians of the Galaxy is funny-smart

So it took me awhile, but I finally got around to reviewing Guardians of the Galaxy. Now, let’s start with a simple premise. I was not eager to see this. It looked silly or at least weird.  I mean it has a killer raccoon, a bunch of odd characters that look like they were knock-offs [...]

Auxiliary volunteers the heart and soul of PECMH

Auxiliary volunteers the heart and soul of PECMH

Faded shades of pink and vibrant hues of red surround me every day. These colours are synonymous with my friends in the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, who just celebrated their 80th anniversary this week. I have the privilege of working closely with these volunteers day in and day out and it doesn’t take [...]
