Pickup Crash

The driver of a pickup truck that crashed into the concrete barriers at a car dealership on Bath Road in Collins Bay is facing an impaired driving charge.

A witness says there were two young children in the pickup.

Nobody was injured.

The truck wound up stuck on top of three large blocks of concrete and damaged at least two vehicles in the parking lot at 1:45 yesterday afternoon.

Police say a 25 year old woman from Kingston blew three times over the legal limit and has been charged with impaired driving.

CFB Kingston

CFB Kingston and the defense minister’s office both say measure have been put in place to ensure contracting irregularities at the base in Kingston don’t take place in the future.

An investigation last year found senior officers at the base bypassed or ignored policies when they signed contracts and leases worth over $11 million.

The report shows contracts were awarded without the proper tendering process but – it also found there was “no indication of personal gain or collusion”.

Always be yourself (unless you can be like Dave Grohl)

Posted on by Mike

Screen Shot 2015-06-26 at 1.39.57 PM

February 16th, 2001: The day everyone learned that not only is Dave Grohl the former drummer of grunge band Nirvana — and current singer of post-grunge band the Foo Fighters — but also a super funny dude who doesn’t take his job too seriously, and watches the same movies you and I do.

Appearing on The Late, Late Show with Craig Kilborn, we fell in love with Dave Grohl because he’s just like us.

We’ve been raised to believe that we should be ourselves at all times, unless you can be Dave Grohl, in which case: you should be Dave Grohl.

Meet the “Caturday Cat”- Charlie

Posted on by Courtney

Caturday 600x200
CharlieI’m Charlie – very affectionate and cuddly. My perfect spot with my owner would be cuddled up on the couch being brushed. I can be chatty when I want to be, only to get the attention of my owner, but very quiet otherwise then all you can hear is me purring. I’m very well-mannered, easy going, and low maintenance – I don’t jump on counters or tables, just couches to get to my favourite spot. I’m not too particular on being picked up, but will hop onto your lap when I’m in need of a brushing and cuddle. I have chronic ear issues that created an abscess in my ear which has been treated. However, it caused my ear to be misshapen on one side. This makes me more prone to ear infections so I may need treatment here and there. Due to this I qualify for the special needs adoption price. If you are looking for a cuddly, very affectionate cat with a sad story that is looking for a happy ending, I’m your man! Please come visit me at KHS for some cuddle time.

If you would like to adopt Charlie or any of the other “Caturday Cats” visit www.kingstonhumanesociety.ca or stop by the Kingston Humane Society at 1 Bennington CRT.

Dave Grohl: ‘Nicest Guy in Rock’

Posted on by Mike

nice-guy

Dave Grohl’s title of “Nicest Guy in Rock” stems from Ozzfest in 1998.

After a cancelation, Grohl & the Foo Fighters were asked to jump on the bill alongside Slayer, Pantera & Black Sabbath  Grohl was worried the band’s sound wasn’t going to fit the overall sound of Ozzfest & there would be what he described to Rolling Stone magazine as a “riot”.

The Foo’s followed Pantera that night & Grohl’s insecurities went away when he looked after and saw the guys from Pantera watching from the side of the stage and singing along.

‘Dumbest band name ever’: How the Foo Fighters got their name

Posted on by Mike

Screen Shot 2015-06-26 at 1.02.21 PM

Some of the rocks greatest bands have got their names from weird places, like Stone Temple Pilots liking the logo of the STP motor oil bottle then finding words that went with it.

The Foo Fighters are no different.  In 2010, Dave Grohl revealed that around the time of the first Foo Fighters record in 1995 he was reading a lot of books on UFO’s.

When talking to Clash magazine Grohl said: “Around the time that I recorded the first FF tape (that became the first record), I was reading a lot of books on UFO’s. Not only is it a fascinating subject, but there’s a treasure trove of band names in those UFO books!” he said.

Meet this Week’s “Friday FurBalls”- Mara and Lily

Posted on by Courtney

LilyMaraNice to meet you, I’m Miss Mara. My sister, Lily, and I were brought into the Kingston Humane Society when our beloved owner was no longer able to care for us. It was a sad goodbye, but we are hopeful that our happily ever afters are just around the corner. Lily and I are both Shih Tzus, but an easy way to tell us apart is that I’m a little smaller! Don’t let my small stature fool you; what I may lack in size, I make up for in personality. Another way in which I am different from my sister is that I have a grade 3 heart murmur. Though this hasn’t affected my quality of life so far, the veterinarian should take an extra special listen to my “thump-thump-thump” each time I visit. I really hope that my heart doesn’t affect my chances at finding a forever home. I want one of those more than anything. Because of this, I will be adopted out at the special needs adoption fee of just $135. With this flat fee, I will come home microchipped, spayed, current with vaccines, dewormed, treated with preventative flea medication, and you will receive 6 weeks of free pet insurance. That seems like quite the bargain if you ask me! The people here at the KHS describe me as a sweet, social butterfly, and I would agree with them. I am eager to meet new friends, both humans and animals alike. Much like my sister, I would be happiest in a home with children over 8. As I have lived with Lily for my whole life, I may be happy an animal sibling as well. If you think that I could be your next lap dog, please come into the Kingston Humane Society and meet me today!
