BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

A resolution — of sorts — to the ongoing debate regarding the difference between urban and rural tax rates in Greater Napanee was reached Monday night. In a special meeting held at the Strathcona Paper Centre to allow for more public access, council first voted to reject the recommendation that was submitted by a six person volunteer Tax Policy Committee in conjunction with hired consultant Gary Scandlan of Watson and Associates Economics Ltd. They would ultimately vote 6-1 in favour of a slightly altered motion put forward by councillor Max Kaiser. Kaiser’s motion was to “create a new tax policy for the foreseeable future and in this new tax policy consider Method Four of the policy review committee’s final report so far as we take the area rating of fire services, street lights and sidewalks as included in the report.” He also suggested council “not leave the OPP issue alone in such that we seek dialogue with the OPP and the province to seek a final decision to see if calls and service can be area-rated within a given municipality and that we seek that decision within the remaining time within this council and finally that we change the phase in to five years, the first having been done to allow time for the investigation into the OPP issues.” It took about 20 minutes between when Kaiser first put forth his motion to when council voted on his resolution as they worked out the language of his motion. They ultimately voted to reduce the difference of 32 per cent between rural and urban tax rates to 15 per cent by the end of the phase-in; rural would pay 85 per cent of what urban pays on the lower-tier municipal portion of their taxes.

POLICY | Policing issue looms CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The cost of policing was the main reason most of council rejected the original recommendation, citing they simply didn’t have enough information on the matter. “There’s no doubt that police has become the hot issue of the report,” said mayor Gord Schermerhorn. “I want to thank our detachment commander Pat Finnegan for his work with the committee. He was basically put on trial for a couple of weeks. Personally I think there is a difference between an urban property and a rural one. Can I tell you exactly what that difference should be? Maybe not. But that is what we have been asked to decide. I think this committee has done a great job working through most of the issues but I think policing is an area that I’m not satisfied with. We can’t just stop investigating a fair way to bill policing costs.” Councillor Shaune Lucas was the lone ‘no’ vote on Kaiser’s motion. He did vote in favour of councillor Carol Harvey’s first motion, which was the adopt the report in it’s entirety. That motion was defeated 5-2.

When questioning Kaiser’s motion, Lucas brought up that it was in fact Kaiser and councillor Mike Schenk who first proposed assembling a tax policy committee to write a report which eventually cost the town $100,000, a total of $30,000 more than they originally budgeted. “Going into this when we started the committee I really envisioned that we would have a report handed to us that at the time I thought we would be fools not to accept,” said Kaiser. “But at the same time while it might have been a nice idea to have a recommendation made and handed to us that was completely and unconditionally acceptable, I think it would have been irresponsible for us to believe that we can give away our mandate, which is to make these policies and decisions for the municipality, to any committee that we might strike.” Kaiser also added that while he was accepting most of the report, he added on an extra year to phase it in and to keep an ongoing dialogue with the OPP and the province about policing costs.

“The whole OPP issue is such a complicated one and it’s one of our most expensive line items,” added deputy mayor Marg Isbester when explaining why she voted not to accept the recommendation as is but supported Kaiser’s motion. “I certainly think we need to look into it. I know that we’ve had investigations into it but I think there’s so much more that we need to find out.” Lucas said the comments from the rest of council left him “so disappointed, so upset and so confused”. “The last two years has dispelled a lot of myths, a lot of misinformation and a lot of lies,” Lucas said of the report. “I’m happy with what has been done for $100,000 and I accept it verbatim. I don’t accept this, whatever this is, because we don’t know if the taxation that we have to begin with is appropriate. We have 10 years of lost taxation. Another five years is going to give one side of the coin an unfair benefit over the other… This does not make sense to me as an elected official. This would have put it to bed and now it’s out of bed and walking around again.”

Ex-councillor sentenced to five-and-a-half years Kevin Wagar also ordered to repay $800,000 in funds defrauded from victims

BY SETH DUCHENE Editor

Former financial advisor and Stone Mills councillor Kevin Wagar was sentenced to five-and-a-half years behind bars for defrauding two families for a combined amount of just less than $800,000. “It’s a sad tale, really,” Justice Wolfram Tausendfreund said just before handing down his sentence, adding that Wagar not only left his victims in financial ruin by his actions, but left his own life in tatters as well. However, Tausendfreund said it was his hope that Wagar, upon release, would “dust himself off,” find employment and begin to pay back those families. “If he were to do, so, he would likely feel that much better, and walk down the streets of Napanee with his head held high. Only Mr. Wagar can do something about that. I hope that he will end up doing the right thing.” Tausendfreund also put in place a restitution order for Wagar to repay the money to the victims, and ordered that he have no communication with his victims other than through his lawyer. The court heard that Wagar took $568,000 from

one victim and $231,000 from another victim — money that was given to him to be invested — only to put it in a personal account. Between 2010 and 2015, he used money from the account to the point where the account was completely drained. It was not clear exactly where all that money went, with much of the funds being used to pay off personal credit cards. Tausendfreund was presented with contrasting assessments of Wagar before he handed down his sentence. The crown — which sought a penitentiary term of between five to seven years, described Wagar as lacking remorse for his victims, and having no intention to ever provide restitution. Crown Attorney Monica Heine argued that, even taking into account the fact that Wagar was a first offender and that he eventually pleaded guilty to the charges, Wagar should face substantial jail time, particularly due to the fact that Wagar was in a position of trust when he committed his crime, and he attempted to keep “people off his scent”. Further, she said Wagar “lacks complete insight and remorse for what he’s done,” and that he “never had any intention to pay the money back.” She said that Wagar’s defrauding of his victims has had an “intergenerational” impact, preventing those families from providing for their children and

grandchildren as they had intended. Defence counsel Lee St. Aubin, however, told the court that Wagar did have remorse for his actions, and that, all along, he did intend to pay his clients back. In fact, St. Aubin suggested that paying back his clients was the only way he wouldn’t have been eventually found out. Although he acknowledged Wagar’s actions to be unlawful and improper, and had “catastrophic” results for his victims, St. Aubin said Wagar ultimately wanted to make the money back in other investments, such as real estate. “It was his intention to be never found out,” he said. Wagar’s lawyer indicated that his client was suffering from bipolar disorder and acute anxiety disorder while he was misusing his clients’ funds, which might explain, if not excuse, some of Wagar’s irrational behaviour. St. Aubin also said that Wagar declined to offer a defence against his victims’ separate civil actions against him. Tausendfreund said that there was “no evidence” that Wagar had a plan to pay the money back to the clients, and there was no reason for Wagar’s actions other than greed. “He drew on (his clients’ funds” for his own benefit,” he said. “He let them down, for unexplained reasons, but one is that of greed, without any regard for what his actions would leave in their wake.”

FireFit competition puts firefighters to the test BY SETH DUCHENE

different kind of breathing apparatus than the traditionEditor al firefighting gear.) “It was pretty big, 132 Firefighters from across the competitors is pretty big, country put their strength, especially around this time of endurance and firefighting year when people are getting skills to the test at the FireFit ready for nationals and holiEastern Ontario Regional days and what not. It was a competition, which took place really well-attended event,” at the Strathcona Paper Cen- Taylor said on Sunday. He said competitors from tre this past weekend. According to one of the as far away as British Columevent’s organizers, Greater bia, New Brunswick and the Napanee firefighter Chad Yukon took part in the event, Taylor, 132 individual com- plus one competitor from the petitors took part on Satur- U.S. Those able to run the day, while 20 relay teams and course in less than three min20 ‘X-3’ relay teams took part utes earned the right to take on Sunday. (‘X-3’ employs a part in the FireFit national

competition in Calgary next month. Of those 132 competitors, a good number of them were from the Greater Napanee Fire Department. “We had a really good-sized team compete (on Saturday), a lot of first-timers, and they did great,” said Taylor. The competition involves climbing four stories of stairs to the top of a tower carrying a 42-pound hose bundle, pulling a 42-pound hose bundle up to the top of the tower, then hustling back down to the bottom. Then, the competitor hammers a block to re-create a forcible entry

before running to grab a water hose and dragging 75 feet it to a target, spraying it over. The final and perhaps most taxing task is dragging a 175-pound dummy 100 feet to the finish line. On top of it all, competitors are in full firefighter gear. It’s just as tough as it sounds. “(Some spectators said) that they didn’t realize how hard it was, and it is the ‘toughest two minutes’. It’s a grueling race for sure,” said Taylor. “By the end, you’re gassed. You have nothing left.” At the end of the course, a medical tent was set up to help competitors recover from

their ordeal; Taylor said two had to be taken to hospital for precautionary reasons, but were soon released. Before the event really got started, there was a ‘corporate challenge’ on Friday night, where non-firefighters from local agencies and businesses tried their hand on the course. Sunday, meanwhile, marked a sad anniversary for the Greater Napanee Fire Department. It was exactly six years earlier that, when they were returning from a FireFit competition in London, Ontario, their bus was involved in a fatal accident. Darlene Goodfellow, the wife

of Greater Napanee firefighter Dave Goodfellow, died in the crash. On Sunday morning, the five firefighters who were involved in the crash — Goodfellow, Al Hatton, Kevin Duncan, Joe Reid and Dan Matthew — participated in a ‘memorial relay’, with firefighters and community members assembled to watch them run the course. “It’s gone very smoothly,” said Taylor. “The committee did a great job, and we wouldn’t have been able to do it without our committee and all our volunteers that are here. We had tremendous support from our volunteers.”

MP talks electoral reform

Local MP Mike Bossio brought his electoral-reform consultation to Bath this past Saturday. The Bath meeting, which attracted more than 50 participants to St. John’s Hall, was the second of three ‘town hall’ meetings designed to gather public feedback on the federal government’s plan to reform the country’s electoral system. The third and final meeting took place in Tweed on Tuesday night. “It has gone really well. People have been very receptive. They’ve been engaged. I’m really glad we’ve picked the format we did,� Bossio said before the two-hour session began. That format featured the total number of participants being split up into smaller groups, where they would discuss a presented question and relay the results of that discussion to the larger group. A member from each ‘table’ would rotate to another table for each question. Bossio said they employed the same process at the first meeting in Bancroft last week, with a few modifications. Some of the questions being discussed included questions related to the current electoral system, alternatives to the current electoral system, principles underpinning what makes a ‘good’ electoral system, and strategies relating to increasing voter participation. One of the ongoing debates relating to electoral reform, however, has been how the public will engaged in determining which electoral system they prefer — more specifically, whether or not the government should hold a referendum in order to gauge the public’s mood. Bossio said that while there has been no formal discussion of a possible referendum at his consultation sessions, it was not an ‘off limits’ subject. “If people want to

Local MP Mike Bossio kicks off a town-hall meeting regarding federal electoral reform in Bath on Saturday. raise their concerns for or against, in that respect, we’re recording that and we’re going to feed that to the minister,� he said. Before discussion started, Bossio gave a brief rundown of the current electoral system and some of the alternate electoral systems being considered. “Most of the information that is here came from the Library of Parliament, because I wanted it to

be non-partisan,â€? he said. Bossio admits it’s a lot to consider. “The biggest concern that people have had is just the complexity. It’s impossible to explain these systems in detail to the level‌ that people can understand in a 20-minute presentation,â€? he said. He said that the town hall meetings were only the “initial discussionâ€? surrounding electoral reform. “We

encourage everyone to continue in this process. It goes until October, so there will be opportunities (to provide feedback),� he told those gathered in Bath. “The intent of this exercise is really, how do we develop and electoral system that has a fairer representation of voter intentions in our country? That’s essentially what this whole process is trying to get at.�

EDITORIAL

A night to remember Given the amount of attention garnered by the final (or believed to be final) concert of The Tragically Hip in Kingston on Saturday night, it’d be hard to add much more to what’s already been said. But, we have a few thoughts on the show and the events surrounding it. Also, since the quintessentially Kingston band has more than a few ties to Lennox and Addington — its Bathouse Recording Studio is located just outside of Bath, for instance — it’s appropriate to weigh in on the historic night. And make no mistake, historic it was. Outside of, perhaps, an Olympic gold medal hockey game, we can’t imagine another event that would have gathered so many people together in front of a screen to take in one single event in Canada. It was a tragic set of circumstances, of course, that led to this once-in-a-lifetime event. When the band’s frontman, the much-beloved Gord Downie, announced this past spring that he’d been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, it sent a shockwave through the country. Barring a miracle, the summer tour of Canada would be his last. But what happened since that event has been something of a miracle. It’s a testament to what the band means to the country. Can you think of any musician or group of musicians in Canada, or even around the world, that would have generated the kind of response that The Tragically Hip has generated here in Canada this summer? No other band, in recent memory anyway, has so ably tapped into the Canadian consciousness. And it’s as if it’s only Canadians that ‘get’ them. In spite of efforts to broaden their appeal beyond this country, they just never caught on anywhere else but here, for whatever reason. Their path has been unprecedented, and their place in Canadian musical history is unique. The CBC reported this week that about 11.7 million people made a point of at least taking in a part of the show on Saturday night. That represents just less than one-third of the Canadian population. We’ve got no way to prove they’re wrong, but we think those figures are on the low side. Canadians from coast to coast didn’t just watch the concert, though. They got together and watched it at viewing parties. Even if they weren’t in the K-Rock Centre, it became an event. Has anything like that ever happened on this kind of scale in Canada — or anywhere else, for that matter? Saturday night was truly remarkable, and truly memorable. It’s hard to imagine we’ll ever see an event like that again. Gord Downie and The Hip struck a nerve. As much as Saturday’s concert was couched as a goodbye — a sad moment — it was something else: a chance for a country to show its appreciation for a uniquely Canadian band. We’re sure Gord and his mates got the message loud and clear.

What’s new this month The library receives well over a hundred new books each month and August, in particular, has ushered in some great titles. The following are three August releases that I have read — and they couldn’t be more different! The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena, like most thrillers with an unreliable narrator, has received the obligatory Gone Girl comparison. Usually, it’s a marketing ploy but in this case, the comparison is a fair one. I wouldn’t say I liked it as much as Gone Girl, but of all the so-called Gone Girl read-alikes released in the past five years, this one has the most similar feel. The novel follows Anne and Marco, a couple who decide to leave their baby at home while they have dinner at their next door neighbours’ house. While they drink a bit too much at the gettogether, they manage to take turns checking in on baby Cora When they return home for the night, however, Cora is inexplicably missing, presumably abducted. Detective Rasbach is on the case and he senses that the couple is hiding something — both from him and from each other. Things get very complicated from there on out.

The Couple Next Door is easy reading with lots of great twists and turns. The final twist, to be honest, seemed a bit much — silly and unnecessary — but the book as a whole was a solid page-turner worthy of its Gone Girl comparison.

Catherine Coles Coles’ Notes The Regulars by Georgia Clark is chick-lit with a bit of magic thrown in. It follows best friends: Evie, Krista, and Willow, navigating New York City in their tumultuous mid-twenties. Evie feels stifled in her current position as a copy editor for a glossy (and in her mind sexist) women’s magazine; Krista is an out of work actress with a shopping addiction and a ton of debt, and Willow is a tortured artist who is so insecure that it is driving her boyfriend away. All three women are very average looking and feel that their appearance is holding them back — so when Krista comes home with a magic potion called “Pretty” they decide to take their chances by having a taste. Lo and behold, the potion suddenly

transforms them into supermodels. The catch is that Pretty only lasts a week before they become “regulars” again. While they initially plan to use it only once, they become addicted. Doors are being opened for them because of their new and improved looks, both romantically and careerwise, but like in all fairy tales the magic will come at a price. This novel is funny in a raunchy sort of way that you don’t normally find in chick-lit and it features a diverse cast of characters, which is also refreshing. However, as fresh and entertaining as it is, the messaging is a bit unclear, and definitely not as empowering as I think it was intended to be. If you can tolerate a novel with a silly premise and a lack of character growth then this is definitely a fun read but I don’t believe it is the feminist fairy tale it claims to be. Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue follows Jende Jonga, an immigrant from Cameroon who is living in Harlem on a temporary worker’s visa. He came to the United States to provide a better life for himself, his wife and young son.

Letter to the Editor

Farmer doesn’t want to be left high and dry It is no secret that, due to extreme weather conditions, area farmers are having a difficult time. In our own case, our hay crop has been less than half of normal. Our corn crop will yield somewhere around 50 per cent of inferior feed. So, we will be, and have been, buying a lot of expensive feed. On top of these difficulties, our water supply has now dried up. We have two ponds and they have never failed in 45 years. As animals cannot go without water very long, we have already trucked 100,000 gallons of water in one pond from the water plant in Napanee, at a cost of $3,750. We use about 5,000 gallons of water a day, so this is enough water for 20 days. We have had a contractor come in to clean and dig the second pond deeper and bigger. Now we are better prepared in case we have more dry years to come. But, for now, we just have a big hole in the ground with just a trickle of water in the bottom. We are fortunate that there is a fire hydrant on the

watermain that comes from Lake Ontario to supply Napanee with its water. This fire hydrant is about 1,500 feet from our pond. Last week, I went to the Greater Napanee council meeting to ask the council if, under these severe weather conditions, we could get permission to rent a hose and then some night (when water requirements in town are at their lowest) we could put this hose on this hydrant for a few hours to put some water in our pond. This would be the most cost-effective, efficient and environmentally friendly way to get water in our pond. The manager of the water utility was at the meeting. He informed us right away that he was not allowed to let raw water go out of this line. But he also told us that due to the severe drought, the ministry of the Environment has made it legal for farmers to take water from rivers and lakes to water their livestock. There were several suggestions by council of how to solve our problems. None of

those were workable, including the suggestion that the municipality set up a pumping station at the lake by the hydro plant. We do not want the taxpayers to spend any money on our problem, especially when there is a pumping station already there, pumping water right past our place. I would suggest the manager of the water board read the rules again. Maybe he will find that, under the extreme drought conditions we have, he would be allowed to let us use this hydrant to put raw water in our pond. It would not cost the taxpayers any money; it would actually make the municipality some money as we are prepared to pay for the water. It seems strange to me, we are donating money all the time to several organizations to help people in other parts of the world with water problems. But when we have extreme weather conditions and emergencies in our own municipality, we are not allowed to help each other. The town spends millions of

dollars to build roads and put in water and sewer to attract new business. But when an established business has a problem because of severe weather conditions, nothing can be done to keep them in business. I would strongly urge this council to find a way so that we can put a hose on this hydrant and put water in our pond. This hydrant was put there to be used in emergencies. This is an emergency, so let’s use it. These dry conditions may persist for many more months, as it did 50 years ago. That is the year I drew water from the lake until Christmas Day. I don’t know if the Lord did it or Santa Claus, but it rained all Christmas Day, and by the end of the day, we had a pond full of water. It was the best Christmas present I have ever had. Let us hope it does not last that long this time, but if it does, it is going to cost a lot of money. So, we sure could use some help with our water problem. John Sonneveld, Greater Napanee.

Letter to the Editor

Seniors don’t need ‘sugary’ names me; they highlight and stigmatize my age. The intent of strangers in using words such as ‘honey’ may be one of kindness. But it intimates that some of us seniors are not as smart both physically and mentally as we used to be. Boomerang words such as sonny or sweetie or darling or sugar or dearie just because we are older suggests a lack of sensitivity to the fact that we are still people. The value of loving words is earned over time but pick up negative values when used carelessly. My observation is biased of course, but I assume most of us older folk do not enjoy being treated as children. I’ve been to shopping malls and medical institutions enough times to know that they are among the places where seniors may be spoken to with a name that does not fit. Clerks and medical personnel are trying to be totally kind in

what they say. Still the ‘darling’ type name doesn’t fit. Wherever you work, please do not use sugary words that end up being a put down. Since I’m not ‘sweetie’ to the gas station attendant, I’ve considered buying gas someplace else. My suggestion: do not use language that reminds anyone that they are old and nearing the end of life. Members of my family and friends who are over 90 continue to dream and have the hope of fulfilling some purpose in life. Mary is one such lady who is now 97 and remarkable in that she has recently published a book of her memoirs; it is well written and filled with fascinating stories. I don’t talk down to her because of her age. I suppose there are times when those honeyedup words make no difference. Readers may have had my experience: an older brother deteriorating with Alzheimer’s till words

meant nothing. The time came when someone holding his hand was all that mattered. But until I get to that place I wish everyone would address me with language acceptable to older adults. As yet. I’m not personally familiar with retirement homes but I did check in with a friend who lives in a seniors residence. He nearly tore the premise of my letter to pieces when he said, “And they treat me so kindly. They call me sweetie and dearie. It’s so nice.” He is the exception for most seniors I know, for they want to be treated with the normal courtesy and the language the ordinary adult receives. So if you don’t know a senior’s name, how about trying out ‘sir’ or ‘madam?’ I’ve had enough of the loveydovey stuff.

As we the American Dream defi- know, the writing was on the nitely make him a character wall for the Lehman Brothto root for. Unfortunately for ers at this point in time. Jende, this novel is set in the What I enjoyed the most autumn of 2007, with the about this book is how it porrecession looming. Jende trays the humour, heart-

break, and bravery of the immigrant experience. With segments of America currently in the grips of xenophobia, its release seems to come just at the right time. It covers all sorts of topical, divisive themes (race, class, immigration), making it a fantastic book club choice.

You can reserve these three brand new books from your branch of the County of Lennox and Addington Libraries or online at www.countylibrary.ca.

What do we older people like to be called? Why, by our real names. Even ‘Hey you’ might be more acceptable than those sugary names people throw at us. I was waiting at a local restaurant the other day to get my coffee fix. The employee at the cash spoke up to get a senior’s attention, “Now sonny, what can I help you with?” I looked at the customer and saw he was a long ways from being a ‘sonny’ to the lady at cash. There was some 50 years difference in ages with the employee being the younger. In that situation the use of ‘sonny’ was silly. Remember, words develop meaning from unique experiences over time. For instance, after almost 63 years of marriage, when my wife calls me ‘dear’ that word is precious. A good relationship makes sure a word is well received. But when a stranger uses those sugary words, they alienate

A trip through the pages of The Napanee Beaver 50 Years Ago August 24, 1966 ■ A historic Tamworth feed mill was changing hands — sort of. E.W. Bradshaw was selling the mill to his son, Garry. The history of the mill went back more than 100 years — and times weren’t always good. It had burned twice since it was built by Calvin Wheeler in 1865. It caught fire first in 1923 when it was owned by A.B. Carscallen; it was rebuilt shortly afterward. Then, in 1953, the mill again burned down again, and again, it was rebuilt. Over the decades, the mill also adopted new processes to keep up with the times. ■ A union representing CIL sent some ‘information picketers’ to Napanee to help bring local residents up to speed on their ongoing strike. Nine women representing Canadian Auto Workers Local 9-170 were in downtown Napanee, holding picket signs expressing their displeasure with the status of the ongoing contract dispute. One of the picketers said it was their intention to “inform the public of Napanee of some aspects of the strike, which were perhaps unknown here.”

30 Years Ago August 27, 1986 ■ Retired Judge William J. Henderson chided Ernestown Township council for, in his view, dragging its feet when it came to encouraging development in the municipality. “When are we going to get going to get on with developing Amherstview?” he asked council at one of its meetings. Henderson’s own development was being delayed by the fact that the township’s water and sewer capacity had been reached, and couldn’t accommodate more growth. “I just want to get going,” Henderson said. “Hammers and saws haven’t been flying for a long time.” ■ Celanese Canada announced that it was laying off 37 workers at its Millhaven facility. The company blamed the layoff of 32 production staff and five maintenance staff on the fact that it was facing a “soft market”; further, it was expected the market wouldn’t improve in the foreseeable future. The company said it had exhausted workarounds, and the layoffs became necessary. The Millhaven plant produced industrial filaments used in the production of conveyor belts, seat belts and polyester tire yarn. Some 830 people worked at the facility.

Geocachers find way to L&A for ‘mega’ good time About 1,000 take part in annual GPS-hunting event

BY SETH DUCHENE Editor

Avid geocachers from around the world once again made their way to Lennox and Addington to take part in what’s become an annual tradition in the county. On Saturday, L&A County hosted its fourth ‘mega’ event — a category in the geocaching community reserves for those events that attract 500 or more participants. ‘Discover L&A’ organizers had no problem hitting that benchmark once again. According to L&A County Community Development Officer Rob Plumley, about 1,000 geocachers signed up for the event, up from last year’s 900 participants. Further, Plumley said that there were a lot of new ‘cachers’ who registered this year. And among those visitors were some real globetrotters. Plumley said that geocachers from as far away as New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Spain, Alaska and Florida signed up.

Geocaching is a GPSbased hobby which requires a portable GPS unit or a smartphone. Whether they’re geocaching on their own or taking part in an event like last weekend’s, ‘cachers’ use those units to zero in on hidden ‘caches’, and register their finds online. Those participating on Saturday’s event were also eligible for prizes. Besides the geocaching that took place on Saturday, participants had been kept busy leading up to the event as well. Earlier on in the week, they were given a special ‘tour of the galaxy’ at the Dark Sky Viewing Area with astronomer Terence Dickinson, and were able to take part in an ‘L&A Hard Beverage’ tour highlighting local wineries and craft breweries. On Friday, they were treated to a special concert in Conservation Park. Caches, meanwhile, were hidden throughout the county, from Denbigh to the north to Amherst Island in the south. Further, a ‘passport tour’ for geocachers

Geocachers used Southview Public School as a home base, where prizes were handed out and vendors sold geocaching-themed merchandise. provided some incentive to visit as much of the county as possible, and learn about L&A County along the way. Given the ongoing suc-

cess of the ‘Discover L&A’ event, it should come as no surprise that the county is already looking ahead to their fifth mega event next

summer, scheduled for Aug.19, 2017. Plumley said that, given that Canada will be celebrating its 150th birthday next year, organiz-

ers will play on that theme for ‘Discover L&A 2017’. Details for the next event can soon be found at www.landageocaching.com.

A Message Of Hope For Mexico

Council supports water-power development

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

Abna Investments Ltd. has Greater Napanee council’s support for a Feed-In Tariff application for a 500-kilowatt water turbine generator as part of the Gibbard’s Furniture Factory redevelopment. At its regular meeting last Tuesday, council voted to support the application after listening to a deputation from Abna engineer Ben Doornekamp. According to his report submitted to council, the water elevation change at the Springside Park falls is the second-best catchment area of untapped water power resources in Ontario, according to a survey conducted by the Ministry of Natural Resources. Doornekamp said the company would only consider installing the water turbine generator during the Gibbard’s Factory redevelopment, as doing so at any other time would be too cost-

ly and difficult. A small generator house would be built on the south side of the Gibbard’s property. The turbine would generate power into the Napanee area grid under the Ontario government FIT program. In other council news: ■ A reduction in the amount of customers using their services has Napanee’s Canada Post Office contemplating modifying its business hours. In a report submitted to Greater Napanee council on Tuesday, Canada Post informed the town that they were considering cutting back on their hours of operation. No changes have been announced as of yet and the Post Office said they would consult with the local representative for the Canadian Union of Postal Workers. They also vowed to keep the Town of Greater Napanee informed on any ongoing discussions. Council voted to receive the information at the meeting.

Members of the Napanee Amnesty International chapter were at the Greater Napanee Hometown Market on Saturday, canvassing for support for their current ‘Butterflies for Mexico’ campaign. Piggybacking on the concept of the Monarch butterfly’s annual migration to Mexico from Canada, the program is designed to convey messages of support for the families of those who have gone missing or who are suffering human rights abuses in Mexico, and to petition the Mexican government to take action. The same display that was at the market will be at the Napanee library branch until Saturday, where people can sign the petition and write a message to affected Mexican families on hand-crafted paper butterflies. From left are chapter president Linda Murray and members Sylvia Chadwick, Cathy Palmer and Cathy Murray.

descendants of the original subscribers to Old Hay Bay Church and also the descendants of the drowning victims of 1819,” said Kathy Staples, one of the event organizers. “A lot of the old families are coming back for a reunion and a chance to touch their ancestors’ roots.” The event gets underway at Old Hay Bay Church on Friday when they will host an outdoor twilight screening of Discovering Emma, a film shot locally that has links to the church. Actors from the 2003 film are expected to be on hand. Tours of the local area will also be held. On Saturday and Sunday, there will be food vendors and presentations on pioneer life held on site outside the church with the

annual pilgrimage ceremony held Sunday. That will be highlighted by guest speaker Dr. Malcolm Sinclair. Guests from California, Florida, B.C. and all across Ontario, all with ties to either the founders or the growing victims, are expected to attend. Staples says at least 18 of the original 22 founders will be represented by a distant relative as well as four or five of the drowning victims. At the time the tragic drowning of young people on the bay rocked the tightly knit community. “Families who lived over on the north shore who attended Hay Bay Church on Sundays, they came across by boat,” said Staples. “This particular Sunday the boat was overcrowd-

ed and Hay Bay can whip up into a storm very quickly.” The tragedy is still one of the worst to ever happen in the region to this day. The drowning incident will be just one of the many historical moments of that area that will be explored this weekend. Both Saturday and Sunday evening will have a roast beef dinner with live music at nearby South Fredericksburgh Hall. Tickets are $25 a person and available at Gray’s IDA Drugstore in Napanee. The sale of tickets ends tomorrow. For more information visit www.oldhaybaychurch.ca. Old Hay Bay Church is located at 2365 South Shore Rd in Adolphustown.

Fall is almost here… I hate to think it, or even say it, but as the nights are getting cooler, daylight seems to be getting shorter, and even glimpses of trees turning colours, fall is soon at our doorstep. I love summer, I love the heat, and all the activities you can do in the summer. I love having the kids home from school with me, until towards the end of the summer, where they begin to utter the words “Mom, we’re bored, what can we do?” Then yet the smallest hope that fall is around the corner, and school starts again, I’m looking forward to turning the calendar to the month of September.

Math spells the end for Novice Express Run differential relegates Napanee to fifth at Nationals

Members of the CASA Art Napanee Express squirt team celebrates after finishing second at provincials in Brampton.

Squirts cap season with silver finish Team effort as Express earns second at provincials Beaver Sports

The CASA Art Napanee Express squirt girls softball team walked away as silver medalists at provincials, which took place this weekend in Brampton. Faced with a tough task in their opening game against Brantford, Napanee came out on top 2-1. In the bottom of the seventh inning of a 1-1 game, Maddy Oster tripled and was later driven in by Rachel Wilkin-

son. Napanee pitchers, Payton Barkley and Payton Hutcheson combined to strike out 19 of the 21 batters they faced in the game. Saturday saw the girls defeat Guelph 10-3 before losing a nail biter to Springfield 2-0. With the loss, the team had to begin their tough road back to the gold medal game. Playing early on Sunday, Napanee defeated Kitchener White 22-1. Playing back-to-back, Napanee

defeated Brampton Burgundy 13-1. Later that afternoon they assured themselves of nothing less than a bronze, defeating the Vaughan ‘05 squad. In the gold medal game against a well rested team from Springfield, the Express train ran out of gas losing 10-1. A successful weekend and season by all team members contributed to the silver medal finish.

The Napanee Doyle’s Windows Novice Express found themselves on the wrong side of a numbers game at the 2016 U14 Canadian Fast Pitch Jamboree in Winnipeg this weekend, finishing fifth in the country. Caught up in a four way tie after going 2-1 in their playoff pool, the Express were relegated to fifth based on run differential. Their lone loss in the playoff pool was an 8-1 defeat at the hands of B.C.’s second entry, the Victoria Devils. Napanee had battled tough through four innings, trailing just 2-1 before the floodgates opened. The Devils scored six runs and then shut Napanee down in the bottom of the inning to win via mercy. That one blip was enough to distort their run differential and keep them from advancing out of their very tough pool. “We were one inning away from playing for a gold medal,” said Express head coach Scott Morrow. “We lost out on mathematics.” The Express had entered the national tournament, which was a first for the girls, with high expectations as Ontario's second seed. “It was kind of disheartening, but they played great,” said Morrow. “It was a good week.” Jumping out to a hot

In their second game they matched up against the eventual gold medal winning White Rock Renegades from B.C. Their pitchers kept the Express bats in check as the Renegades held on for a 2-0 victory. Down 3-2 in their next game against the Lumsden Cubs from Saskatchewan,

the Express rallied back with eight runs in the fifth for an 11-3 victory. Amber Weese and Brooke Fairs led the way with some clutch hits. Napanee closed out the preliminary round against Manitoba’s second entry, the Central Energy. Trailing 52, the Express turned to pitcher Megan Morrow to stop the bleeding. She did just that, striking out nine of 12 batters.

Mites lose race against the clock, settle for fifth at provincials Napanee’s comeback against Milton Senior Bats falls short as game reaches time limit

Beaver Sports

ime ran out on the Napanee U10 Mite Express, who finished fifth at the provincial championships in Lasalle, Ont. this weekend. Their push for a gold medal came to an end when they fell 4-2 to the Milton Senior Bats after six innings. The game was called as they reached the hour and half time limit imposed on games at the mite level. Napanee had jumped

T

out to an early lead in the first with back-to-back singles by Kristen Sutton and Keyana Whan. They added another in the second as Jordyn Watson led off with a single and was driven in by Sarah Marshall, giving the Express a 2-1 advantage. Milton scored two more runs in the third and added another in the fifth for a 4-2 lead. That's when the game began to move at a slower pace and eventually time ran out after the sixth. Danielle Barker pitched

a strong game for the Express, striking out six batters and giving up no hits or runs. The Express started their tournament with an absolutely slugfest, beating the Oakville Angels 30-0 for a mercy rule victory. Kristen Sutton picked up the win with Keyana Whan connecting on a grand slam and Barker adding a two-run homer. Sutton also had three RBI. In the second game it was more of a contest with Napanee edging the Missis-

sauga Tigers 4-3. Sutton got the win with nine strikeouts, relieved by Barker who fanned seven. Sutton added a solo home run in the second inning. Chloe Davey started off the fourth inning with a leadoff triple and Sienna Eberle followed with a sharply hit single to drive Davey in for the go ahead and winning run. In their third game the Express bats were still rolling, posting a 15-0 win over the Milton Junior Bats. Sutton got the win and

helped her own cause by going 3-for-3 at the plate with two doubles, a single and four RBI. Whan had three RBI while Barker hit a grand slam in the second inning. Jordyn Watson had a home run in the first inning, Marshall had a two RBI double and Emily Liscumb hit a leadoff triple in the third. At the end of round robin play Napanee was one of the top seeds, placing them in a double-knockout for the A championship. Taking on the Halton

Hawks in their first playoff game, Davey was the only Express batter to scratch out a hit in an 8-0 loss. That placed the Express in a rematch game against the Mississauga Tigers, who were out for revenge. Rain started just as the teams took the field and Express pitchers struggled to find grip on the ball, allowing three runs in the first inning. At the end of that half of inning the rain picked up and play halted.

MITES | Team looks to win league title NOVICE | Resounding success this season CONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 After a small delay, Napanee took the field to bat, starting their half of the inning with three straight singles by Kayla Gendron, Sutton and Whan. That was followed by a huge double by Barker to tie the game at 3-3. Just then the skies opened up again for good and postponed the rest of the game to Sunday morning. When play resumed, Napanee added a run in the third inning to take the lead. The lead wouldn't last however as the Tigers

stormed back with three runs to take what seemed like a comfortable 6-4 lead in their final at bat. Mississauga came out to go into shutdown mode in the bottom of the inning. However, the Express girls showed great plate discipline, and the Tigers walked the first four batters, bringing the score to 6-5. The next two hitters struck out bringing the leadoff hitter, Gendron to the plate. With nerves of steel, she took the first pitch she saw and lined a rocket shot up the middle to the outfield and scored the two runs for a walk-off

victory. Sutton picked up the win and struck out eight batters. The celebration was cut short by the strong Senior Bats team however, who ended Napanee’s run with the 4-2 victory. The Express girls have some unfinished business left as they will be travelling to Oshawa this Saturday to play in the North York Women’s Softball League Mite Division playoffs. They will start off at 9 a.m. and a win would push them through into the gold medal game.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 She also didn’t allow a single base runner. As she was shutting down the Energy the Express bats roared to life, posting enough runs for a 9-5 victory. That win relegated the Express to the top pool of the playoffs, where they would face off against the top two teams from B.C. as well as Halton Hills, the top seed from Ontario. In their first game, they drew the White Rock Renegades, who had yet to allow a run the entire tournament

to that point. “We played the game of our lives,” said coach Morrow. “Facing the top pitchers in Canada, we were able to hold on for the win.” Weese tripled and scored on a hit from Fairs to make it 1-0. Rachel Foster followed up with an RBI of her own and the Express tacked on another for a slim 3-0 lead. Morrow made the start and turned the ball over to Alexa Oriecuia to close out the final three innings. “At the end of the game (the Renegades) had bases loaded, nobody out,” said coach Morrow. “We walked in a run and then got a fielder's choice for the first out. Then (third base) Chihiro Suzuki turned a double play to end the game. It was incredible.” It would go down as the only loss the Renegades would suffer the entire tournament and also saw them allow three of the four total runs they’d surrender all week. Unfortunately, the Express weren’t able to build on their upset win and lost 8-1 to the Devils. They did, however, bounce back to beat the Halton Hills Hawks for their first time ever, a streak that dates back to when the girls were at the mite level.

They bested them 8-5 to close out playoff pool play. “We were finally able to beat them when it mattered most,” said Morrow. Ultimately, it wasn’t enough to qualify for the finals, as the White Rock Renegades advanced. All of the teams in the pool finished with a 2-1 record, forcing organizers to determine the top team based on runs for and against. White Rock would go on to beat the host Winnipeg team 5-1 in Sunday’s final. “We were a bit unlucky,” said Morrow. “We went 2-1 in our pool and a 1-2 team went on to play for a medal. The math got us. We only had one bad inning the whole tournament.” Still, the season will go down as a resounding success for the novice Express. In total they played 68 games this summer and lost just 12. They also were tournament champions in Vaughan, the qualifier and had a second place finish at provincials. Morrow thanked his sponsor of Doyle’s Windows as well as the community at large for helping the girls go as far as they did. The girls will look to improve on their strong finish next season as 10 of the 12 will move to the bantam level.

Greater Napanee

A Prize To Play

Council conditionally OKs pair of zoning changes BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

A local business and the Lennox and Addington County General Hospital Foundation were both given conditional green lights to re-zone buildings to better suit their particular needs by Greater Napanee council last Tuesday. The first business was looking to get 824 Palace Rd re-zoned to allow for a martial arts training facility. Because of the building’s proximity to Highway 401, however, it falls under the Ontario Ministry of Transportation’s jurisdiction. Just ahead of Tuesday’s council meeting, the ministry requested that council put a holding provision on the land so they could conduct a traffic study and recommended that the entrance to the building closest to the 401 ramp be blocked. That has left the perspective tenant of the building in limbo, as they push to find a permanent home for their gym ahead of September when they will have to move out of their temporary space. “We should ask for forgiveness and not permission on this one,” said councillor Max Kaiser. “Seeing plenty of spaces across the province with a lot more traffic volume, the likelihood of a traffic study on the impact (of a fitness centre at that location) is not expected to have any adverse, if any, impact, I would move that we move the original recommendation with the additional, at least temporary addition, that we have a restriction of the second entrance which we all know is closest to the 401, and to further enter into discussion with the MTO to resolve whatever issue they might have.” Council agreed that the proposed business could be viable at that location and agreed to re-zone it as such,

with the stipulation that the second entrance would be blocked. The town also agreed to enter into discussion with the ministry should any further issues arise. In a separate re-zoning issue, council agreed that the Lennox and Addington County General Hospital Foundation could expand the permitted uses for 310 Bridge St. W. The foundation had previously had their request to open the building up to businesses that would create a ‘health centre hub’ denied on the basis that they were too general when filling out the application form. Foundation chair Robert Paul explained their application was filled out in such a way to avoid as much yellow tape as possible — they simply checked off as many uses as they could in the hopes they could skip the application process every time they had a new tenant. That raised some red flags

with the municipality when they noticed the foundation had requested establishments such as a tavern or an LCBO go in the vacant lot. Paul explained they would only accept tenants they deemed would specialize in helping keep people healthy. Hospital Chief Executive Officer Wayne Coveyduck explained the hospital needed to lease out the space in an effort to keep generating money for the hospital. “Will you give me your word that if we pass this without the holding position on here, that you and your people will do something so you don’t have to do this holding position?” Greater Napanee mayor Gord Schermerhorn asked Paul, asking for his word that he would use the proper discretion when accepting tenants. “Absolutely,” responded Paul. Council voted to pass the motion without a holding pattern.

How to help kids find extracurricular activities Sports may be the first thing that comes to mind when many parents think of extracurricular activities for their children, but not all kids are cut out for or interested in competitive athletics. But just because a youngster may not be the next star quarterback or captain of the soccer team does not mean he or she can’t find an extracurricular activity to be passionate about. Parents know that schoolwork comes first, but extracurricular activities can be important to a child’s development, serving as an avenue to meet new people and an opportunity to learn the importance of teamwork. The following are a handful of things parents should con-

sider when trying to help their children find the right extracurricular activities. Interests One of the easiest ways to help kids find an extracurricular activity they can be passionate about is to discuss their interests with them. Youngsters with a love of animals might enjoy volunteering at a local animal shelter or hospital, while those who love to write may find writing for the school newspaper is a great way to apply that passion in a practical setting. Even kids with a passion for video games might be interested in learning about computer graphics and what it takes to design games. When

trying to find extracurricular activities for your children, resist the urge to write off any of their interests. Instead, use those interests as jumping off points to further engage their passions. Availability Parents know that school comes before extracurricular activities, but kids may not be so wise. Keep in mind kids’ existing workloads when helping them find the right afterschool activities. Many organizations are especially flexible with teenage volunteers or employees, but parents still must keep a watchful eye to ensure kids do not overextend themselves. Kids who overcommit

to extracurricular activities may end up feeling burnt out, which can have a negative impact on their schoolwork. Encourage kids to find activities they care about, but emphasize that these activities should not become bigger priorities than schoolwork. Let kids know that they can get more involved during summer vacation, but make sure kids don’t devote too much of their time to afterschool activities during the school year. A couple of hours per week and even some additional time on the weekends should not distract kids from their responsibilities at school, and that’s still ample time for kids to explore their interests. Internships

Internships were once exclusive to college students, but many organizations now offer internship opportunities to high schoolers as well. Kids who find themselves interested in particular subjects at school, whether it’s graphic design or a beginner’s course on finance, may be eligible for internships with local companies. Such opportunities may even encourage kids to pursue a particular course of study once they enter college. Extracurricular activities can help youngsters develop into well-rounded adults. Parents can help kids find the right activities while still encouraging them to keep schoolwork atop their priority lists.

Consider simple home eco-improvements for easy savings

(MCC) — By Scott McGillivray Did you know that being environmentally conscious is also an easy way to put money in your pocket? You can significantly reduce your carbon footprint and energy consumption if you have an efficient home and use cleaner products. Consider a few, simple ecoimprovements to reduce energy consumption and increase savings on your monthly energy bill. Insulation: If your house is older, chances are the insulation doesn’t meet new code requirements. An improperly insulated attic is a primary source of energy loss and results in your furnace and air conditioning units working harder than necessary. By topping

up the existing attic insulation you can significantly reduce energy loss. A popular product for this DIY

home. If you want to reap the greatest energy savings, request a custom brick-to-brick installation, because inserts can leave gaps, especially if placed in the old, inefficient jamb. Landscape your home for energy efficiency. Plant a few tall, deciduous trees near your home to significantly reduce the amount of solar energy passing through windows and beating down on your roof. In fact, the right amount of shade in the right places can reduce cooling bills by 10 to 50 percent.
