Meet this Week’s “Friday FurBall” – Casey

Posted on by Courtney

15-515 casey (aka cash)Casey is a snortin’, tootin’, nubbin’ wigglin’ kind of girl. She is a lot of love, in a short, compact, well-fed package. Casey was surrendered by her owner through no fault of her own. She’s had a bit of a longer stay with us as she needed special surgery to correct her cherry eye. While being in our care, she’s been spayed and had her cherry eye corrected. Casey has low energy needs but would benefit from a moderate exercise plan to help her lose a few pounds. She is a couch potato at heart and loves to snuggle beside you having her little ears rubbed. With exception to her happy snorting and snoring, she is a quiet girl, who is completely house trained. Casey is looking for a home where she is the only animal and would prefer living with folks over the age of 12 years. She doesn’t mind visiting children, but the everyday chaos would be just too much for her. If she sounds like the right dog for you, come to the KHS to meet her today!

 KCVI – Memorial Centre

The Mayor and city council are being strongly urged to open a discussion about the Memorial Centre for Kingston’s new high school by two members of the school’s design committee.

Stephanie Howie and Robb Laird have written an open letter to council saying it is an ideal location because of its distance from QECVI and KCVI.

They say it is not too late to discuss the location.

Howie teaches at KC and Laird is a teacher at QE.

They say council has decided the site isn’t on the table without any discussion about how the new high school could benefit the area.

KEDCO

There is more trouble for KEDCO.

Kingston city councillor Adam Candon is furious the economic development agency has a man convicted of environmental crimes as its business ambassador.

George Scott pleaded guilty this week to environmental charges laid against him and his former company, Scott Environmental.

Candon says KEDCO showed a lack of judgment when it appointed Scott because it would have known about the charges.

Acting KEDCO CEO Donna Gillespie says Scott is a volunteer who has a goal of bringing community champions to the table and has been a big booster of Kingston.

The families of patients in the palliative care unit at St. Mary’s of the Lake Hospital are in shock after the hospital discovered a nurse has been stealing a pain killer  for the past two-and-a-half years.

Providence Care issued a news release yesterday saying police are investigating after it learned last month a nurse on the palliative care unit has removed the drug…hydromorphone.  The internal investigation found patients may not have received their proper pain medication.

A special toll free phone number has been set up to handle inquiries from the families of patients.

Kingston Police are still investigating and say they haven’t laid charges yet.
