  • OUT to LUNCH: Save room for dessert when you visit Carter’s Restaurant

    Because we have always enjoyed the food, this is the third time I have written an “Out To Lunch” article about eating at this Ten Mile location.

    It was called the Stone Cottage Inn in my June 2008 article. I wrote about it again in Oct. 2010, when it was the Pizza Factory.

  • Ladd answers sought

    After months of holding their tongues on slowdowns that have attended the Ladd Landing Greenway project, Kingston City Council members let loose with a barrage of concerns at a work session on May 7.

    Unfortunately, engineer Kent Olson of Vaughn and Melton was the only one present to field the complaints.

    Olson was at the meeting as a fill-in for Danl Hall, the man who is actually the chief engineer on the project. Thus, he was unable to answer council’s sometimes-pointed questions as to why the project is experiencing difficulties.
