And if you missed it, here's what happened last week:

Always a top read in NewmarketToday is our regular updates on proposals for new developments in our ever burgeoning town. In this edition of What's Going Up, we take a look at the plan submitted to the town by Marianneville Developments — also the builder for the new homes on Stonehaven at Bayview and on the former Glenway golf course —  to build 124 townhomes on a plot of land bordering the Environmental Park on Woodspring. 

Biggest Elvis Presley fan, Wendy King provided her two cents on a new biopic about the King of Rock 'n' Roll in last week's aptly titled Everything King column.
