The Globe and Mail Published Tuesday, Apr. 29 2014, 1:00 PM EDT Surplus Toronto street signs ? some of them autographed by the city?s notorious Mayor Rob Ford ? went on auction this week. Early bids on the 105 decommissioned Toronto street signs have produced a few surprises, not to mention some lessons on the city?s political and spiritual geography. All bid prices are as of Tuesday morning. Queen Street rules: Four of the top 12 bids are for Queen Street, with Queen Street East consistently outpacing Queen Street West. The top-priced bid on Tuesday was $555 for a Queen Street East sign autographed by Mayor Rob Ford. The Ford Effect: Mayor Ford autographed 16 of the 105 signs available. The early evidence is that the mayor?s autograph adds value ? or subtracts, depending on the location. Those looking for a piece of Queen Street East put a premium on the mayor?s penmanship, with the autographed version at $555 versus $425 unadorned. Travel to Queen Street West, however, and the same sign is valued more highly without the autograph ($345) than with ($330). Perhaps those seeking a memento of Queen West?s vanished pre-hipster glory days are less enamoured of the mayor? Bay Street undervalued? For a street that?s synonymous with money, Bay Street signs appear to be going cheap. The autographed version is bid at $365, with unsigned versions at $325 and $290. Then again, the auction lasts for 60 days, so the smart money may be in derivatives. Here

Beach Mirror By Joanna Lavoie April 24 2014 While spring may be the ideal time to clean your home and/or yard, it?s also a perfect occasion to give the community a good scrubbing by taking part in one of dozens of local clean-up events, set to take place throughout Riverdale, Leslieville and the Beach this weekend and in the weeks to come. Over in Riverside, the Riverside Green Initiative (RGI), a grassroots community group made up of people who live, work and play in the Riverside area, with the support of the Riverside Business Improvement Area will be hosting a community clean-up event of the new Joel Weeks Park and the surrounding area on Saturday, April 26 from 10 a.m. to noon. Those interested in taking part should meet at 50 Mathilda St., which is located at the north end of Joel Weeks Park. Participants should bring garden gloves, a rake and/or a broom and dress accordingly. The Riverside Green Initiative was formed in early 2012 with the goal of doing outreach, education and community-building around green initiatives, specifically guiding the development of a new community garden space in the redeveloped Joel Weeks Park, which is located north of Queen Street East and west of Broadview Avenue. While community gardening is the core focus of the group, current and future activities include seasonal neighbourhood clean-ups, workshops on nutrition, container gardening, a farmers? market and other complimentary green community initiatives in partnership with Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation, the Toronto Community
