Stories I still haven’t had time for

I try to stay on top of the goings-on, but I occasionally just drop the ball.

Here are the stories I wished I had covered in 2018.

There’s a new development coming near Church and Weston, promising three town houses and nine detached homes, with prices “starting in the $700s”.

I tried to dig up some more information, but I struck out. Readers?

Toronto’s ravines face serious threats and may be near “ecological collapse” according to a study done by a PhD student at U of T.

Over the past 40 years, there has been a severe and widespr ead
decline in native trees, wildflowers, birds, and mammals”, due, primarily, to invasive species. The Norway maple, garlic mustard, Japanese knotweed, and drog-strangling vine are “now present in over 95% of the forest floor surveyed.

There’s a new bakery in town. Royal Bakery opened near Jane and Weston. I’m ashamed to say I haven’t been.

Nor have I been to Nikos, the new Greek place on Jane, Bakery El Quetzal, a Guatemalan place at 2011 Lawrence, or Esquina Salvadoreña Restaurant, at 1738 Jane.

I hate myself.

The Weston Public Library is now open Sundays 1:30 to 5:00.

I don’t know what is up at the Church Street site of the Humber River Hospital. It’s been a long time since I’ve heard anything, and I really need to look into it.

And, finally, “700 feet will be kept warm and dry” this winter, thanks to the good people at 12 Division and Heat Holder Socks.
