Meet this Week’s “Caturday Cat” – Rhonda

Posted on by Courtney

Caturday 600x200
RhondaTimid Rhonda was quite nervous when she came to KHS, and she is still quite shy while being in her cage. Originally she came to us as a stray, so we don’t know a lot about this sweet girls background. Rhonda spent some time in a foster home whom absolutely adored her. She was well behaved, and soaked up all the luxuries of being a spoiled house cat. Now it’s her time to find a forever home, and she hates being at the shelter so we want to find her perfect someone as soon as possible! She may be shy in her cage, but she’s a lovely mannered lady in the home and is anxiously waiting for you.

 Gold Standard – Skin Cancer Surgery

Kingston is home to a new surgery program that will provide the gold standard treatment for skin cancer.  A new micrographic surgery program has opened at Hotel Dieu Hospital.  Hotel Dieu is one of only 13 hospitals in Canada to offer the program.

Officials say the microsurgery program has a 99% cure rate for basal cell cancers and a 97% cure rate for squamous cell carcinomas.

It’s especially effective on aggressive skin cancers and can be performed on an outpatient basis with the use of local anesthetic.

 Wolfe Islander – Delayed Again

People who use the Wolfe Island Ferry, the ferry to Amherst Island and the Glenora Ferry have received more bad news.

The Ministry of Transportation has announced the Wolfe Islander III will not be returning to service the week following Labour Day and it says there is no estimated date for it to be back from dry dock in Hamilton.  MTO says the delay has been caused in work to upgrade the ferry’s wheelhouse.

Until the work is finished…the Frontenac II will continue providing service from Kingston to Dawson Point.  The Quinte Loyalist will remain in service for Amherst Island…and 30 minute single ferry service will continue at the Glenora operation.

Wind and Rain

The storm that brought an end to the heat wave flooded Kingston roads and knocked out power.

Utilities Kingston says trees or tree branches came down and knocked down power lines in five locations yesterday afternoon.

Power was off in the central part of the city…including St. Lawrence College.

Bath Road near the Frontenac Mall, Gardiners Road at the underpass and Place D’Armes in downtown Kingston were a few of the spots that were under about half a metre of water.

Power was also knocked out in areas north of Kingston but Hydro One had restored the power in those areas by early this morning.

Drone – Collins Bay

It turns out a drone was used to drop a package into the prison courtyard at Collins Bay Insitution earlier this month.  The Whig Standard reports sources say the drop happened on the evening of August 5th and the package was quickly seized by correctional staff.

The Correctional Service made no mention of the drone in a news release that stated a package was found containing a cellphone and 180 grams of tobacco.

The Whig says the package also contained narcotics.

A lockdown was ordered after the package was seized and a search of the institution lasted for almost a week before the lockdown ended.
