    editor’s letter WHEN YOU LOOK AROUND KINGSTON, IT DOESN’T TAKE LONG TO SEE THE MANY INDIVIDUALS AND ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE WORKING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY. But for all those that are visible, there are as many, or more, that are working behind the scenes. One such organization is Kingston Interval House. The staff, volunteers and donors have been providing support to survivors of partner abuse in Kingston and the surrounding area for decades. In the seemingly uphill fight against domestic violence, the many people at Interval House demonstrate compassion and leadership on a daily basis. In Finding Hope (page 18), writer Kirsteen MacLeod and photographer Rob Whelan highlight the work of that organization, which is marking 40 years in our community. In that feature, Jeannie Quinn, an artist, advocate and grandmother, shares her story of surviving years of domestic abuse. As I tabbed through the photographs taken of Jeannie to accompany the article, I was struck by how courageous this woman is in sharing that part of her life with our readers. *** In this issue, writer Jane Bailey explores an issue that we first covered four years ago. In our May/June 2011 issue, we ran an article on “How the City Cured the Family Physician Shortage.” Fast forward to 2014, when we started receiving letters from readers explaining how difficult it is to find a family doctor in Kingston. As Bailey discovers, some of the community’s most vulnerable residents are without a family physician, causing more stress on our already overburdened emergency rooms and urgent-care facilities. Find that feature on page 23. *** In food, we introduce you to Flavours of India (For Starters, page 27), a new Indian fusion restaurant on Princess Street. The mix of Western and traditional fare is the perfect comfort food for the long winter ahead. Speaking of warming up, writer Josephine Matyas brings readers three cocktails from three passionate bartenders/managers in In Good Taste on page 28. *** Heading into the new year, we want to hear what you think. Do you have an idea for a story or have a topic you’re passionate about? If you have thoughts on something you’ve read or want to read, tell us. Reach us by email at danielle.vandenbrink@sunmedia.ca or on social media. Until next time, Danielle van den Brink danielle.vandenbrink@sunmedia.ca facebook.com/KingstonLifemag twitter.com/Kingston_Life contributors During the summer, writer Kirsteen MacLeod attended the anniversary event for Kingston Interval House and was struck by the hard work of the organization’s staff, volunteers and supporters. Read Finding Hope: 40 Years of Kingston Interval House. Local photographer Rob Whelan visited the home of Jeannie Quinn, a member of the Kingston Anti-Violence Survivors’ Council and abuse survivor, to capture her resilience and the impact the Kingston Interval House has made in her life. For months, writer Jane Bailey has been working to uncover the reason behind a perceived lack of family doctors taking on patients in Kingston. Bailey spoke with both patients and healthcare providers to see what’s changed since we brought readers that story in 2011. 8 KINGSTON LIFE | KINGSTONLIFE.CA | NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2015
