    editor’s letter EVEN FOR A SMALL CITY, THERE ARE SEEMINGLY ENDLESS AMOUNTS OF STORIES TO TELL. In planning each issue of Kingston Life, we spend countless hours seeking new and notable people, places and issues that contribute — and often spark — discussion in our community. Looking back, some of our most talked about stories were those about you — every day Kingstonians who are passionate about a cause, an idea, events and this city. In our first issue of 2016, writer Kirsteen MacLeod shared the stories of four people who had no formal connection to each other, but through six degrees of separation, made an impact on each other’s lives. “Kingston abounds with people who subtly inspire and influence us,” MacLeod wrote in Kingston Connections: In praise of small, significant human exchanges (January/February Kingston Life). That idea resonated with our readers. We received a number of phone calls and letters calling for a regular column that would continue to explore these nuanced connections between people in this city. We listened, so look for more in future pages of the magazine. In our March/April issue, writer Kelly Reid profiled four local women who have taken their passion for food and fashion to the web, creating blogs and social media spaces that provide readers with made-in- Kingston recommendations on where to eat, shop and take some pretty Instagram photos, too. Not surprisingly, Meet the Bloggers created an impressive amount of buzz on social media, prompting us to collaborate with these local influencers in other ways. In A City Divided (May/June), writer Ian Coutts got in his car in the east end of the city to test the amount of time it takes to travel across the Cataraqui River. It took him a total of 10 minutes and 30 seconds (the longest of three completed trips) from Gore Road to the intersection of Queen and Montreal streets. This caused Coutts to ask the question: Is this a problem that needs a Third Crossing? If our readers’ responses are any indication, the city remains divided on this issue, revealing staunch positions on both sides of the river. Our last issue (September/October) marked 175 years of Queen’s University in Kingston. Through research, writer Anita Jansman discovered only about three per cent of Queen’s grads find work in Kingston. Through comments on social media, readers shared their frustrations about the ability to find permanent and meaningful work in the city. As we begin a new year, we encourage our readers to send us their ideas for the topics they would like to see discussed in upcoming issues of Kingston Life. Tell us what you would like to see more (or less) of, and participate in the discussion on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. We want to hear from you. Until next time, Danielle van den Brink dvandenbrink@postmedia.com facebook.com/KingstonLifemag twitter.com/Kingston_Life @kingstonlifemag contributors Writer Kelly Reid visited several local faith groups to discuss the challenges facing the church of today, and what these groups are doing to adapt. Find that feature on page 22. Harvey Schachter visited two local restaurants whose owners have taken a gamble on a second location. But was it worth the risk? Read The Reporter on page 14. Writer Josephine Matyas mastered the delicious job of finding the most decadent must-try dessert spots. Read her recommendations in In Good Taste on page 28. 8 KINGSTON LIFE | KINGSTONLIFE.CA | NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2016
