Gallery Theme & Google Maps

Hi All: I am using Gallery 1.2.2 for a community project.
http://sites.muskokabusiness.ca/

There are a couple things I am struggling with...

1) No Sidebar Widgets- I have tried every widget in Appearance> Widgets. There appear to be no widgets for this area http://sites.muskokabusiness.ca/siteseeing/haliburton-forest-wildlife-reserve-ltd/ [category>postname]

2) Google Maps- I love the plugin. It works great. Why are the images all choppy and ugly looking when the map renders in the browser (see attached). E.g. http://sites.muskokabusiness.ca/siteseeing/cruises-of-30000-islands-island-queen/

Thanks in advance for any guidance,

Rob
