Graveyard Indecent Act

A 26 year old Kingston woman and a 26 year old woman from the Brockville area have been charged with committing an indecent act at a gravesite in a cemetery.

What happened is shocking.

Alisha Tackaberry says she contacted police after she was sent a video of two women urinating on the gravesite of her three year old son.

The OPP isn’t providing any details about the incident that took place in the Oakland cemetery near Brockville in April and was reported to them in July.

Haley Peyman of Kingston and Katherine Collins of Elizabethtown-Kitley Township are scheduled to appear in court in Brockville on September 30th.

Picton Woman – Kingston Crash

Four vehicles were involved in the collision that shut down Princess Street near Centennial Drive.  Three of the vehicles suffered extensive damage but there were no serious injuries.

The woman from Picton is 70 and not only faces and impaired driving charge – she also charged with failing to provide a breath sample.

Government Funding

The federal government has announced 10 million dollars in funding to help restore and enhance historic sites and visitor facilities in the Kingston area.

The majority of the money will be used for restoration work on Fort Henry, three Martello Towers known as the Kingston Fortification and Bellevue House national historic site.

There’s also funding to fix up the day-use area and campground at Thousand Islands National Park and buy two new pieces of property that will become part of the park.

K&P Update

The K&P Trail is moving closer to the downtown and today work will begin in the area around Doug Fluhrer Park and Molly Brant Point.  Crews will be trimming some of the mature trees in the park and along the path by the Woolen Mill.

Next week the work will include a unique plan.  An arborist and biologist have chosen logs to be placed in the water at the north end of Doug Fluhrer Park and the south side of Molly Brant Point. They’re meant to become spots where turtles can sun themselves.  The decision to install what are called…basking logs…was made after the remnants of turtle eggs were found along the shoreline.

United Way Update

The United Way campaign is one week old and the thermometer stands at $481,000.  That’s 14% of the $3,451,000 goal.  Two major fund raising events are on tap for this weekend.

The North American Police Equestrian Championships take place at Kingston Penitentiary.  Proceeds will go to the United Way…and…Fare for Friends happens on Sunday at Vimy Officer’s Mess.
