Meet This week’s “Friday FurBall”- Charlie
Charlie is a happy go-lucky kind of guy. He loves everyone that he meets, especially other dogs. Charlie came into us as a stray with his friend “Talula”. Charlie has been a very good boy here in the shelter, and would make a wonderful family pet. We recommend a home with no toddlers. He would do best in a home with a securely fenced in back yard. He is medium energy, and would love to go for a couple walks a day and be your couch potato the rest of the time. We think he is approximately 1 year old. Come meet this handsome gent today!

Life & Style Weekly claims that Kanye West recently got a $20,000 iPhone. A source tells the weekly, “The phone has over 150 grams of solid gold. The most expensive is a version from Stuart Hughes that runs about $12 million. So it looks like he went for the more affordable version.”

Public Sector Cuts
Unions representing people who work for the Ontario government in Kingston and across the province have joined forces to fight cutbacks.
OPSEU and five other unions representing 57 thousand members say they’re waging a war against Premier Kathleen Wynne. They say the government is demanding cuts to members’ health and retiree benefits as well as sick pay and future salaries.
The flood waters are continuing to rise north of Kingston, Napanee, Gananoque and Belleville.
Six communities west and north of Kingston have declared a state of emergency…including Stone Mills Township.
Roads are flooded and the Gananoque, Salmon, Napanee and Moira Rivers are continuing to rise.
Conservation Authority officials believe water levels will be rising by about 4cm or an inch and a half a day for the next few days.
People are hoping sandbags around their homes will keep the flood waters away.
