‘Bright’ season for downtown businesses Stores report bumper year with shopping party, LED light show spurring traffic By Adam Prudhomme BEAVER STAFF WRITER Reviews from this year’s Downtown Shopping Party were glowing, pointing to a bigger and brighter event in every way possible. Held on Dec. 21 under the illumination of Dundas Street’s

Big Bright Light Show, the annual ‘buy local’ shopping event boasted its largest turnout yet. Complete with horse-drawn wagon rides, real reindeer and live music, the downtown streets resembled an old-time Christmas postcard. This year marked the fourth annual Downtown Shopping Party, first under the LED lights.

“I certainly think it created more community spirit and a really awesome Christmas mood,” Cat Monster, owner of Starlet Boutique and founder of the shopping party said of the lights. “It was a really nice atmosphere for such an event.” Monster says the lights were a great marketing tour for draw-

ing in shoppers from the Kingston and Belleville area for the event. “There were loads of destination shoppers coming in to the downtown for the Shopping Party,” she said. Mother Nature did her part, providing the area’s first major snow fall on the night of the event.

“It was perfect for the reindeer, the wagon rides and the carollers,” added Monster. She noted much more foot traffic than previous years, reporting some stores were packed to their limit with patrons hoping to buy some lastminute gifts.

2012 IN REVIEW: February

Town considers aquatics options n In January, Greater Napanee council was exploring its options in determining the direction for aquatics in the town; as such, they elected to conduct a survey to gauge public support for an aquatics project. It was hoped that the

survey results would support any future applications for aquatics project funding from the federal and/or provincial government. At the same January meeting, council also put out a request for pool design proposals.

“(It) is a great step forward for the community,� Greater Napanee Parks, Recreation and Culture Director Kevin Hill said. “In order to prove to our provincial and federal leaders, we need to survey our community to show a real need for this. Also, we need to be shovel ready with design and build documents ready.� Although he warned that the survey could come back negative, Mayor Gord Schermerhorn said council’s responsibility is to do the right thing for the community. “I realize we have to provide swimming for our young people, but I am really worried that if we do that project, we will never have indoor aquatics,� he said. “I go back to the survey and the design propos-

al. If we’re going to get any money that’s coming from the province or the feds... we have to be ready.� Earlier in the month, Hill indicated that municipal officials would be consulting with the local MP and MPP along with representatives from neighbouring municipalities and local service clubs to assess support for a new aquatics facility in Greater Napanee. n Napanee’s Courtney Doupe, 21, was in the process of preparing for a national boxing competition in Halifax, where the young pugilist would be representing Ontario. Doupe’s friendly demeanor quickly disappears when she steps between the ropes — as any of her opponents would attest. Her determination

led to success in the ring, as she’d posted a 10-1 record in the middleweight, open class heading into the national tourney. However, her bid to win a national title came up short, losing to Myriam DaSilva. n The Napanee OPP were on the lookout for a suspect in connection with a robbery at the CIBC bank branch at the Napanee Mall on Jan. 10. The robbery took place at around 10:50 a.m., when a man approached the teller and demanded money. He left with an undisclosed amount of cash. No weapons were used, police said. An arrest was made shortly after the incident; however, the OPP ultimately released that individual. About a month later, Andrew Thomas Hayes was arrested by police in London, Ontario, in connection with the Napanee heist along with other bank robberies in London and Durham.

After 20 months of waiting, the environmental assessment of the Beechwood Road Environmental Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed new landfill was set to begin. In late February, the Ministry of Environment announced that Minister Jim Bradley approved the terms of reference that would guide the environmental assessment of the new landfill, put forward by Waste Management. The minister did, however, attach conditions to those terms. Those conditions stipulate: n that the company demonstrate that the project can meet the MOEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stringent environmental criteria n that the company fully evaluate options for managing leachate n that there be early consultation with the public, Aboriginal communities, the Ministry of the Environment and government reviewers. In a telephone interview following the decision, MOE spokesperson Kate Jordan said that the conditions were added â&#x20AC;&#x153;to ensure that the draft that the proponent was proposing would be sufficient and set out a plan for the EA that would be fully protective of human health and the environment.â&#x20AC;? n In February, the 2012 M&M Meat Shops Canadian Junior Curling Championship took over the Strathcona Paper Centre â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the headlines as well. When the dust settled on the national tournament, Alberta came away with the top hardware in both the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s divisions.

Tournament organizers but kind words for Napanee. All week long the town played host to 26 of Canada’s top junior rinks, all without a hitch. “The ice makers prepared a fabulous surface,” said Danny Lamoureux, Canadian Curling Association Director of Championship Services and Curling Club Development. “This is ice that a lot of these kids had never even seen before. It has really showcased their curling abilities.” Although the town has hosted two major sports tournaments prior, the Juniors was by far their biggest undertaking. With draws happening simultaneously at the Strathcona Paper Centre and Napanee and District Curling Club, volunteers were kept busy throughout the week. “At events like this I usually have people chattering in my ear saying ‘I don’t like this or that’,” said Lamoureux. “I have had nothing this week and that’s in large part to the work of the host committee.” n A sudden injury to Quebec’s Lewis South allowed Napanee curler Scott Chadwick the chance to live out his dream of playing in the Canadian Juniors on his home ice. South, who plays lead, found himself in pain shortly after one of Quebec’s early draws at the Canadian Juniors. With another draw looming, he decided he

2012 IN REVIEW: March

L&A states wind power concern n Following up on a presentation from Amherst Island residents a few weeks earlier, Lennox and Addington County council voted take a stand regarding wind power developments. Lennox and Addington County council members received applause and a standing ovation at their working session meeting in March from a group of approximately 20 Amherst Island residents after council unanimously passed a motion calling for the provincial government to put a moratorium on wind farm development until such time that an independent study of the health effects of wind turbines is completed. A notice of motion to that effect had previously been made by Greater Napanee councillor Gord Schermerhorn at an earlier county council meeting. He said the motion was one that described all of their concerns, especially the health effects of wind turbines on those living in close proximity to them.

“The potential health effects have proven to be destructive to the social and cultural fabric of our urban and rural communities,” he said. “Therefore, be it resolved that the council of Lennox and Addington request the Ontario provincial government to implement a moratorium on industrial wind turbines, until independent — not government — health studies have been completed.” n When it came to the latest landfill environmental assessment, Mayor Gord Schermerhorn said that Greater Napanee would be well represented. The June 2010 submission of Waste Management’s Beechwood Road Environmental Centre Terms of Reference marked the first step in that process, followed by the terms’ approval by the ministry, with conditions, in February. The ToR guides the EA process. “We’re going to be in the process by peer reviewing and making sure that they are follow-

ing the terms of reference and the environmental assessment,” Schermerhorn said. “The terms of reference is something that will have to have more public consultation, so we are going to make sure that is done,” he continued. n Greater Napanee council passed a motion at a March council meeting to continue to work with the group of municipalities that are concerned with rising contract policing costs. The motion also called for the town’s chief administrative officer, Ray Callery, to participate on the Association of Municipalities of Ontario task force, with council taking no further action until an update from the group is received. The motion was prompted by a resolution previously passed by Haldimand County re questing support from all municipalities in Ontario that are serviced by the OPP. “I think that we would be remiss if we didn’t encourage Ray to participate in this (because) the expenses are enormous,” said Councillor Bill Pierson. The cost of policing is just another example of how the municipality’s hands have been tied in its attempt to control spending, said Councillor Shaune Lucas. n As the Town of Greater Napanee continued to narrow its search for an aquatics design, a decision was made to complete a planned public survey inhouse.

was presented with estimates of between $9,100 to over $16,000 to gauge public opinion on aquatics. “The survey that can be completed by the community will show whether there is support for the project,” said Kevin Hill, Director of Parks, Recreation and Culture. “If that support is there then that speaks volumes when we present that in our final report. It speaks volumes when we go to provincial and federal governments.” He recommended that a cross-section of demographics be targeted — approximately 1,000 households as opposed to the entire community. n The latest distracted driving campaign was over, but accident statistics resulting from inattentive driving proved that further education and prevention was needed. It had been nearly a year since the Ontario Provincial Police added distracted driving to their ‘big four’ list of contributing factors in fatal collisions, but drivers didn’t seem to be getting the message. According to Napanee OPP Constable Tammy Coleman there had been a high number of distracted driver charges laid in the Greater Napanee area. “We’re always educating the public and trying to enforce that through awareness,” she said. “We focus on it every day of the year.” While this usually involves demonstrations, visits to the local high school and continued RIDE programs, Coleman said seeing an increase in offenses triggered a new campaign.

Big changes ahead? As a new year dawns and we look ahead to what might happen in 2013, it’s obvious that we could be in store some big changes. Not in all areas, of course, and certainly few of those changes will be emanating from Ottawa. There, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his majority Conservative government have put a premium on continuity. He won his last election with ‘continuity’ as his primary pitch to Canadians back in 2010. The federal government faces fiscal challenges, and we’re going to see spending cuts along the way in 2013 — that cutting could cause ripples here. But, it won’t be anything compared to the changes we’re going to see out of Queen’s Park this year. The biggest ‘ripple’ — one which could have a dramatic impact on this community — is at the provincial level with the arrival of a new premier later this month. Liberal Leader Dalton McGuinty announced his retirement as 2012 drew to a close (and proceeded to controversially prorogue the legislature the same day). The new premier — whoever that happens to

be — will have a big job on his or her hands. He or she will have to get the government back on track. However, the messes being left behind by McGuinty — a record deficit, an ongoing labour dispute with teachers unions and the gas-plant fiasco, just to name a few — will no doubt make that job difficult. Without a majority in the legislature, the new Liberal premier will be on a short leash, too. Before the year is out, in fact, we just might be on our third premier: an election could come as early as this spring, and Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak and NDP leader Andrea Horwath could find themselves in charge. In either event, more changes would be in store. Regardless of who is in power, this will all impact how our local councils and municipalities operate. Especially in this part of the province, we rely on financial assistance from the provincial government to provide critical services. Any change to how municipalities are funded will have a big impact here — and it could have a big impact on what kind of services we can expect, and

how much we pay in property taxes. As has happened before, the job of getting the province’s finances in order can cause massive headaches and hardships down the municipal line. That in mind, one thing isn’t going to change in 2013: our local councils will have to continue to be creative in how they face those challenges. We should be in for a very exciting year.

Over the years, Napanee students have endured more than their fair share of abuse from the powerful Toronto-based teachers unions. The union bosses invariably target small boards like ours. While many teachers do not support the notion of holding our students ransom, they have no choice but to go along under threat of discipline and fines. These attitudes were common in Jimmy Hoffa’s day. They should have disappeared long ago in Ontario. In the private sector they have. The majority of our teachers are capable and devoted. They do a difficult job for which they are well paid. But the union bosses need to learn that the world has changed since Jimmy Hoffa. We need to eliminate jobs-for-life. Parents should be able to rate teachers at the end or each school year. Boards should be able to hire the teachers they want each year from the available pool. This would eliminate teachers who are in the wrong profession and encourage those who remain to give their best. In the private sector workers compete for the available jobs. Why shouldn’t the public sector be the same? While we’re at it we might deal with the pencil sharpener installers union. The Toronto School Board recently paid $150 to install a pencil sharpener. This kind of featherbedding has contributed to the fiscal crisis we now face. It’s clear what needs to be done. Let’s hope that the next Premier of Ontario has more guts than the current one and does it. It’s time the fiddler called the tune. Hubert Hogle, Napanee

Keep the LCBO More good thinking from Tea Party North. Randy Hillier, our vociferous Tory MPP, and his party have another big idea: close the LCBO. Right on! That will stop pesky Quebecers from buying so much of their booze in Ontario. And so what if the LCBO only made a profit of $1.6 billion last year? Privatize it anyway, says Randy. Then, as in Montreal, small shopkeepers can charge 30 per cent more for fewer brands. There’s a bit of a problem with Napanee, though. Its new LCBO store is particularly handsome and much liked by staff and citizens alike. Randy, this is not good for votes. But that shouldn’t stop the Grand Old Party of Bomber Harris. Close ‘em all!

COMMUNITY / 7

Appreciating Frank Lloyd Wright As a former interior design student and now interior designer, I have studied many designers, architects, artists as part of my education. Many have made an impression on me, and I appreciate many of their works; however, one architect that I recognize as a great contributor to design and whose work I value is Frank Lloyd Wright. He was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more that 1,000 structures and completed 500 works. He is well known for Fallingwater and Soloman R. Guggenheim Museum. He was born in the farming town of Richbald Center, Wisconsin in 1867 to parents William Carey Wright and Anna Lloyd Jones. He was a locally-admired orator, music teacher, occasional lawyer and itinerant minster. His mother was a county school teacher. Soon after Wright turned 14, his parents separated, and his father left Wisconsin after the divorce, and he claimed he never saw his father again. Wright changed his middle name from Lincoln to Lloyd to honor his mother’s family. As he was left as the only male in the family, he assumed financial responsibility for his mother and two sisters. He was admitted to the University of Wisconsin-Madison as a special student in 1886 and took part-time classes for two semesters, and worked with a professor of civil engineering, Allan D. Conover. In 1887, Wright left the school without taking a degree (although he was an honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from the University in 1955) and arrived in Chicago in search of employment. Within days, and after interviews with several prominent firms, he was hired as a draftsman with the architectural

firm of Joseph Lyman Silsbee. In his autobiography, Wright recounts that he also had a short job at another Chicago architecture office. Feeling his was underpaid for the quality of his work for Silsbee (at $8 a week), the young draftsman quit and found work as a designer at another firm. Wright soon realized that he was not ready to handle building design by himself; he left his new job to return to Joseph Silsbee — this time with a raise in salary. Although Silsbee adhered mainly to Victorian and revivalist architecture, Wright found his work to ne more “gracefully picturesque” than the other “brutalities” of the period. Wright aspired for more progressive work. After less than a year had passed in Silsbee’s office, Wright took on a job with Adler & Sullivan finishing drawings for the interior of the Auditorium Building. Wright demonstrated that he was a competent impressionist of Louis Sullivan’s ornamental designs and was an official apprentice in the firm. Wright was regarded as one of the greatest architects of the 20th century. Over his lifetime, he witnessed an age of great change as the world moved into the machine age — and a period in which new architecture would emerge. His legacy to the field of architecture in particular, comes in many forms: the innovative use of materials; his rejection of rooms as defined boxes of walled-

in space; and his great commissions such as the Prince Tower or Guggenheim Museum. Wright was one of the first American architects to provide an alternative to the ideas prevailing at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries — those of Art Nouveau, and styles such as Queen Anne or Tudor. W r i g h t believed in “organic architecture” and in his essay ‘In the Cause of Architecture’, he defined the following principles. Simplicity: Everything that was unnecessary, including interior walls, should be eliminated. There should be as few rooms as possible. M u l t i p l e Styles: There should be less lip service paid to styles of the times and more concern about the requirements of the individual. Above all, architects should design for their clients’ requirements. Sympathy with the environment: Site and architecture should be in harmony. Buildings should seem to ‘grow’ from their environment. The colours should also be in sympathy with their surroundings. Building colours should be natural and local materials used to ensure that colours blended. The ‘nature’ of materials: All building materials should show their natural characteristics and shouldn’t be disguised. This concept carried through to the structural use of the materials so that the characteristics of load and

support be apparent though the use of the materials. Buildings should bring people joy. These principles were similar to those of the Arts and Crafts Movement, but Wright was not as innately conservative or rooted in tradition as the members of that movement. He not only embraced new materials nut used them joyfully to ‘break the box’ and open up his buildingssteel beams allowed him to span space and create dramatic cantilevered roofs, and poured concrete. Organic architecture, however, meant that the architect was not only involved in the structure of the building, but the contents as well. In order to maintain consistency, Wright felt that it was quite impossible to consider the building as one thing, its furnishings another and its setting and environment still another. “The spirit in which these buildings are conceived,” he wrote, “sees all of these together at work as one thing.” The chairs and tables, and internal furnishings, therefore, were part of the building itself, so he would himself design furniture and fitments for many of his houses. Frank Lloyd Wright’s work can be divided into periods: Early Period: Derivative of the work of his contemporaries, the Queen Anne or shingle styles, for example, his early work at Adler & Sullivan was heavily influenced by Louis Sullivan. Even his freelance work, the “bootlegged houses,” did not show what was to come. The Prairie Period: Beginning in 1901 and extended into the 1910s, this phase saw Wright produce a new house form which was characterized by strong horizontality and organic architectural principles — use of natural materials and harmony between the building and its site.

The Textile Block Period: Having left Oak Park and his family following his involvement with Mamah Cheney, this phase saw Wright build his decorative, Mayan-inspired, cast concrete houses in California — La Miniatura, and the Ennis, Freeman, and Storer houses. The Usonian Period: Identified as being dated around 193555, Usonian houses were lowercost than Prairie, could be selfbuilt by the client and could be prefabricated — the Marshall Erdman buildings. On top of these design periods, Wright also completed major public commissions throughout his career such as the Larkin Building, Midway Gardens and Imperial Hotel, Tokyo, and the Guggenheim Museum in New York. These are a great testament to his ability to build both for the individual and on the grand scale. His continued popularity is evidence of the strength of feeling for him, from the care with which his houses are restored and looked after by their inhabitants and, furthermore, designs for buildings he planned out but which were not built have been completed since his death. But most of all, the strength of feeling for Frank Lloyd Wright is shown by the continued fascination that thousands of visitors bring to his home at Taliesin, and the sheer weight of publications about his work. Wright was a pioneer in the modern style and a great influence in modern architecture and design. His work was unfailingly inventive and beautiful and such a strong influence over design around the globe.

Changes in our endurance as we mature Ever notice as we get older, we can’t always eat the things we used to enjoy? When I was a kid, Dad used to bring home a package of smoked herring. I ate them like candy, but no one dared stand next to me while I did so as the smell from them was abominable. Even my own brother refused to sleep in the same bed with me for at least a couple days. I came across smoked herring the other day in the supermarket, so I bought a package, just for old times’ sake. For those who have never tried it, eating smoked herring can be compared to consuming an entire block of pure cow salt. I am certain it would be possible to store these things on the hot air duct of a furnace. I ate only one and after a spell of convulsive hiccoughs and recurring heartburn, I spent the afternoon draped over the water cooler and went to bed with my mouth tasting like it had been dragged through a storm sewer. I was ill all night long and well into the next day. I don’t know how I ever ate those hideous things when I was growing up. The next day, the entire package went into the compost bin. Even with rotting onion skins, banana peels, apple cores and coffee grounds, the smell from the bin’s decomposing contents were no match for the rejected herrings. One of my New Year’s resolutions is to think a few moments

before I try anything foolish. I can no longer do hand springs around the high school gymnasium like I did in Grade nine. Arthritis in the feet prevents me from burning up the dance floor like my partner and I used to do when we were 13. Clambering up the side of 50-foot silos is also out of the question. I can’t even stand for long on the roof of our house without getting dizzy. The other day I found a column that I had written in 1969 where I described the events of a particular Sunday after I had finished the morning’s milking and had downed my breakfast. Picking up a friend of mine we set out to explore a heronry in a wooded swamp near Lake on the Mountain, then drove back to the Picton Flying Club where we rented a Cessna and spent two hours doing an aerial tour of other heronries in the County. After lunch, we drove to another flooded swamp where we waded through knee deep water to survey another heronry. Returning home for supper, I did the evening milking, then got a call from an acquaintance about a rare lark bunting near Consecon, a good half hour’s drive away. Picking up my friend again, we motored on up to have a look at this feathered rarity, staying until darkness forced us to call it a day. After farming for almost the entire week, I wonder even today where in the world I got

Terry Sprague

Outdoor Rambles the energy to do all those things that back then seemed so routine. Certainly I could never survive such a pace today. Today, I’m good for a half day at a hectic pace, or a full day at a leisurely pace, provided it is punctuated with a noon nap. A friend who had grown weary of me complaining about this all the time, told me to forget what we were able to do in the past and concentrate on what we can still do today. I have tried to heed his advice and have since become something of an ambassador. We are not getting older, but “maturing” as Graham Kerr, the Galloping Gourmet used to say on his TV show. We have but one body – you don’t get to upgrade to a newer model ! So,

we need to treat it well, exercise, and do the things we can do, and not dwell on those things that we can’t. I can’t jog – never cared too much for it anyway – but I can walk, and I do so every morning for several kilometres on the treadmill and several more kilometres once it is light enough outside for me to see. I have solved the problem of arthritis in the feet and hips, and have found a way to hike up to 15 kilometres, with little effort, and I will continue to walk as long as I can put one foot ahead of the other. As we forge bravely ahead into yet another new year, I think it is important for all of us to heed the advice of my friend who set me straight a few years ago. Don’t let advancing years, or a handicap, prevent you from living. As author Pam Dillon said in a past issue of Fifty-five Plus, “You have one life. You live it by yourself, not for the approval of others. Nobody’s responsible for it but you. No sense wasting it.” The guided hike program

that I have offered since 1996 is a prime example of folks getting out and doing the things they can do, irrelevant of their ages and any physical handicaps. Age for many of them is just a number, and it shows in their ability to conquer great feats of endurance. The opportunities out there are numerous. From walking trails, conservation areas and other natural areas, to people like me who are willing to take you places. And, I am not alone. Friend Phil Norton has an excellent series of hikes and walks that operates out of Prince Edward County. I am sure there are others. So, join us, if you can. And whatever you do, stay away from smoked herring! For more information on today’s topic, please e-mail tsprague@kos.net or phone 613 476 5072.

Tribunal takes closer look at landfill closure plan A request to appeal certain conditions in the current licence for the Richmond landfill site was granted by the province’s Environmental Review Tribunal. The ERT decision in April came two months after members of the Concerned Citizens Committee of Tyendinaga and Environs made their application with the independent and impartial tribunal. In a statement released shortly after the ERT ruling, Mike Bossio, the chairperson of the CCCTE, said that the highest priority is to ensure robust monitoring and effective contingency plans at the closed Richmond landfill site. “In these circumstances, our group believes that it is premature and unacceptable for Waste Management to proceed with an environmental assessment for another new mega-landfill immediately

beside the Richmond landfill,” Bossio said. A matter of a few weeks later, The CCCTE announced that it was taking the next step in seeking changes to the Richmond Landfill’s operating licence. The group indicated that it had officially filed its notice of appeal to the Ontario Environmental Review Tribunal against seven conditions contained in the site licence for the now-closed landfill. n A letter from a solar project developer irked some members of Greater Napanee council, and led to a discussion on where such project should and should not be located. Citing a letter from alternative-energy developer SkyPower, Ward 1 Councillor Michael Schenk said that, by simply receiving it for information, council would basical-

2012 IN REVIEW: May

ly be “just ignoring the problem.” Schenk argued that L&A County’s prime agricultural land, regardless of what class it is, should be off limits to solar development. “For them to be using it as a solar power farm will basically destroy that farm for generations, not just for 20 years,” he told council at an April council meeting. “I am totally against it. I would like to put a motion on the floor that we strongly oppose giving them an opportunity to use some of the best land that Lennox and Addington has for a solar farm.” In his letter to council, Kerry Adler, the president and chief executive officer for SkyPower, said that the project would not only be providing safe, clean, solar power but would also spearhead investment, create new jobs, and help clean the air we breathe.

Loyalist clarifies its wind-power position

n Loyalist Township Mayor Bill Lowry issued an open letter to Windlectric in May, hoping to clear the air for both the company and residents. In the letter, Lowry stated that council was open to “discuss a community benefit agreement with representatives” from the company that is hoping to install 33 wind turbines on Amherst Island. According to the letter, the fact that council was open to a meeting by no way means council supports the project. “That’s why we stipulated in the press release, very specifically that the discussion that we hope to have with them won’t be construed as an expression of council,” said Lowry in a telephone interview after the letter was made public. Some members of the public were upset earlier that week after a media report suggested the company was willing to pay council $7.5 million a year for the life of the feed-in tariff contract with the Ontario Power Authority, which would run from 2014 to 2034. Lowry said those numbers were “ludicrous.” n With the town’s indoor pool closed and the outdoor Rotary pool removed, Greater Napanee council approved a series of alternative for local aquatics this summer. Council authorized staff to enter into an agreement with the Adolphustown UEL Park to use their beach as the venue for family beach days and the Summer Day Camp, in addition to offering a backyard pool lesson program. A report from Vicki Hallam, the town’s Manager of Programs and Special Events, outlined the proposal, which includes busing and offers open public swim time for families, once a week throughout the summer. This will be offered in addition to weekly trips to the Summer Day Camp program. “Trained lifeguards would board the bus for monitoring both travel and on site,” she said. Council also approved a backyard pool swim lessons program, should the participant demand be met. n The Concerned Citizens Committee of

Tyendinaga and Environs saw a large turnout at the first in a series of public meetings on Waste Management’s proposed new landfill site. About 180 people attended the meeting, held at Napanee District Secondary School in May. A panel of four presented their views on the existing and now closed Richmond landfill, and the proposed landfill and recycling centre currently in the environmental assessment stage. That panel included long-time landfill expansion opponent Ian Munro, Lennox and Addington County General Hospital chief of staff Dr. Tom Touzel, hydrogeologist and environmental consultant Wilf Ruland and Canadian Environmental Law Association lawyer Richard Lindgren. n While animal rights activists demonstrated outside the Napanee provincial court one day in May, looking for justice, the two men accused of drowning a dog in a local quarry were still looking for legal representation. Justice Geoff Griffin set a new court date of June 26 for Travis Haaksman and Carl Wood, both 18. The men were charged with killing or injuring an animal under the Criminal Code of Canada. Both Haaksman and Wood were present in the courtroom, but sat separate from one another. When Justice Griffin asked the men if they had lawyers to represent them, both men said that they had yet to retain legal counsel. Haaksman told the court that, despite his own best efforts, no local lawyer would take his case, while Wood said he was waiting for a Legal Aid certificate. Justice Griffin said that he would give Wood and Haaksman additional time in order to find lawyers to take their cases, adding that “counsel may be a little further afield than Napanee or Kingston.” n A serious head-on crash on Highway 401 near Shannonville Road claimed the lives of two transport truck drivers. The collision closed the highway completely in both directions between Deseronto Road and Highway 37.

A few weeks later, Greater Napanee council unanimously passed a motion calling for a full environmental assessment for a proposed Little Creek Solar Project. The 10-megawatt project is being pitched by SkyPower and would be located on the south side of Little Creek Road. n After a year-and-a-half of negotiations, Greater Napanee council approved a new OPP contract in principle. Council had recently outlined their outstanding concerns regarding the rising cost of policing in a letter to Dwight Duncan, the province’s finance minister. In that letter, Mayor Gord Schermerhorn indicated that, as a small community, a one percent tax increase amounts to $65,000 in revenue. “Police costs are now just under $4 million and this recent contract offer represents over a

$500,000 increase from the previous contract,” he said. “Contract negotiations and renewals between the OPP and the Town of Greater Napanee have been difficult processes since amalgamation.” The need for better data, transparency, fair billings, delayed revenues and the deployment model, he said, have been the subject of numerous delegations over the years. n The Napanee Country Traditions Atom BB Stars clinched the Ontario Minor Hockey Association championship with a thrilling 5-3 victory over the Pelham Panthers on home ice in April. The Stars faced a not only a tough team but a tough travel schedule in the final series. In the fifth and deciding game of the series, however, the Stars capped their championship season.

2012 IN REVIEW: June

War of 1812 activities take centre stage

n With the continent marking the bicentennial of the War of 1812, all eyes were to be on Bath the Canada Day long weekend. The village was to be the scene of what will be the largest War of 1812 enactment in North America in 2012, with action happening both on the land and on the water. “This is by far the largest thing that we’ve ever undertaken,” said David Smith of the Canadian Fencibles and one of the key organizers for the bicentennial weekend. “We did it on a much smaller scale (with the ‘Gunboat Weekend’ in 2010), but this is a whole other scale.” The bicentennial events were started in solemn fashion in late June when a series of ceremonies were held at local cemeteries — including services in Sandhurst, Adolphustown, Napanee and Bath — to mark the graves of known War of 1812 veterans. Several students from Bath Public School participated at the service held at St. John’s Anglican Cemetery in Bath. n While the fate of a new municipal pool was still undetermined, it appeared as though Greater Napanee would soon be getting a new splash pad. At a June regular meeting, Greater Napanee council directed staff to move forward with a plan to build a new splash pad near where the old Rotary Pool once stood on Pearl Street. In fact, the former pool building and change rooms were to be used for the new splash pad. Later, Greater Napanee Manager of Infrastructure Services Trent Gervais said that the project, estimated to cost approximately $250,000, would have to come back to council for final approval before construction can begin. Gervais said that a final costing for the splash pad would soon be presented to council. n Representatives from both Waste Management and the Concerned Citizens Committee of Tyendinaga and Environs confirmed that they had been having preliminary talks in advance of a future Environmental Review Tribunal hearing regarding the closure conditions placed on WM’s Richmond Landfill.

When a preliminary happened on June 25, however, it was clear that both sides had plenty of work left to do over the summer. The parties in the dispute asked for a second preliminary hearing to be scheduled for Sept. 11 to allow for negotiations to take place through the summer. Richard Lindgren, counsel for the Concerned Citizens Committee of Tyendinaga Township, told ERT chair Maureen Carter-Whitney that negotiations had been taking place between the CCCTE, the Ministry of Environment and Waste Management — the owner of the nowclosed Richmond Landfill site — in the weeks leading up to the hearing. He also said that all parties need more time to “delineate the issues,” and that with experts from all sides meeting through July and August, it was hoped that some of the issues in dispute could be taken off the table before the full hearing takes place. “It’s encouraging to see the two sides working together so diligently,” said Carter-Whitney That Sept. 11 meeting would ultimately be deferred. n London, England wasn’t the only site hosting the world in summer 2012, as Napanee prepared to held its ninth annual Multicultural Festival on June 23. While not as big as the Olympic games, 2012’s festival once again included representation from all corners of the earth. “We have some new acts coming in,” said festival founder Cortwright Christian leading up to the festival. “We’ve got a Latin band coming in from Ottawa and a Greek band coming in from Montreal this year to give (the festival) a much different kind of flavour.” Held in Conservation Park, the event featured dancers, singers and bands along with authentic world dishes. Napanee’s Square Dancers, the Toronto Reggae Fusion Band, salsa music, limbo and calypso music were just some of the acts that took the stage. Italian, Polish, Filipino, Indian and Caribbean dishes were available for tasting as well.

New splash pad get green light

n It was official: construction of the Greater Napanee’s new splash pad was slated to begin during the first week of September, with the project to be completed in the fall and ready for a grand opening in the spring of 2013. A motion authorizing staff to proceed with that timeline was passed during a special session of town council in July. Trent Gervais, the town’s General Manager of Infrastructure Services, said a committee formed to review options had been working on the design of the pad for several months. “We have explored a number of splash pads in the area to determine what would work best for us, both from maintenance and cost points of view,” he said. “As part of the splash pad project, the existing pool washrooms will be renovated (and) this facility will be offered to aquatics patrons, as well as to boaters.” n Questions ranging from the feasibility of doing a baseline health study to the decommissioning of monitoring wells were posed to Waste Management at a public question-and-

answer session. Held at NDSS in July, the meeting was organized by WM and followed in the footsteps of a meeting organized by members of the Concerned Citizens Committee of Tyendinaga and Environs a few weeks earlier. WM Richmond Landfill Site Manager Randy Harris said he was pleased that people on both sides of the debate showed up to hear the presentations. “I would like to thank them,” he said. “The objective was to let folks know what WM is doing at the site from a technical point of view and I think we accomplished that. With this meeting, and the technical meetings we are having with the opposition concerning the Environmental Review Tribunal issue, I believe the more they learn the more comfortable they will be that we are doing the right things.” n With a municipal funding cap being discussed in June, Deseronto Transit administrators got quite a surprise in early July when their share of Ontario’s Gas Tax was revealed. At a regular session of

council that month, Councillor Edgar Tumak announced that the town’s share increased from $17,500 in 2011 to $105,575 in 2012. “It was really quite unexpected that the modest but much appreciated contribution from Greater Napanee, could have this much effect,” he said. “With that we can then address certain issues that are critical.” Tumak suggested that a portion of the funds be used to pay any transit overages for previous years, with the remainder going to help establish a reserve fund. n While Peter Mouncey, the principal at Southview Public School, said that construction of the new school appeared to be on time in July, a final determination wouldn’t be made until early August. “It’s pretty exciting, actually, right now,” he told the Beaver. “The date is still a couple of weeks off in terms of a definite (decision) on whether we’re going to be into Southview, or will go with our contingency plans for the start of September.”

2012 IN REVIEW: August

Gas plant destined for Greater Napanee

n As the 181st Napanee Fair drew to a close following the August long weekend, Lennox Agricultural Society President Bill Lazier said he thought the annual five-day event was a success. While the president said he still had to meet with his fellow fair board members to review and reflect, he said he was under the impression that attendance was as good or better than last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair. He also said that some precipitation over the weekend â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a rarity during this dry summer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have too negative an impact on numbers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It rained a little bit on Sunday, but attendance was good,â&#x20AC;? he said. Lazier said that some of the new attractions at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair proved to be popular. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thursday night, we had the Battle of the Bands, and we had a good crowd for it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had lots of good response from the rare breeds show that came in this year. There were lots of people talking about it.â&#x20AC;? n Following years of waiting to be reunited with family in Canada, nine Congolese refugees would soon call Greater Napanee home. The family was expected to soon arrive at Pearson International Airport from Uganda, where they have been stranded after escaping from the war-torn Democratic Republic of the Congo. Nine members of the Kashira family, including two children, were left stranded in Uganda where they could not work or obtain permanent residency, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really excited since we have been sponsoring the group for about six years,â&#x20AC;? said Father David Smith, the former parish priest at St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Church in Greater Napanee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right off the bat St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Church and St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Church formed a team.â&#x20AC;?

2012 IN REVIEW: September

Residents rally to keep greenspace n Residents in east-end Napanee were rallying to keep some greenspace in their neighbourhood from becoming new residential housing. Petitions, both on paper and online, were circulating in August to keep the King Street parcel â&#x20AC;&#x201D; formerly a ballpark and currently a soccer pitch â&#x20AC;&#x201D; municipally-owned public property. Greater Napanee Mayor Gord Schermerhorn said council had been approached by a developer proposing to build â&#x20AC;&#x153;seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; condosâ&#x20AC;? on the King Street site. One of the leaders of the push to keep the land in public hands, Landin Baerger, said that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at the park with her two young children on a regular basis, making the short walk across Queen Street to the open lot. Since finding out about the potential sale, Baerger had been diligent in collecting signatures to protest any sale of the property. n A Level 2 low water condition being declared for the entire Quinte region in August came as no surprise to farmers like Harold Piercy. With rainfalls well below normal this year, Piercy saw half of his cabbage crop lost as a result. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am too hot, I have to have a coffee and then it gets hotter,â&#x20AC;? he told the Beaver jokingly, but added that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite a stress, all this heat.â&#x20AC;? It was back in 1958 that he opened Piercyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Farm Market â&#x20AC;&#x201D; located just east of Deseronto on Highway 2 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the following year he started selling fruit and vegetables at the roadside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had dry summers before but I think this is the worst for the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cole cropsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (such as broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower),â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The tomatoes and peppers were fine but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the cabbage and cucumbers that are the worst.â&#x20AC;?

n A natural gas-fired generating station that had been cancelled in Oakville appeared to have a new home in Greater Napanee. In a surprise announcement in September, Ontario Energy Minister Chris Bentley said that a 900-megawatt TransCanada generating station that had been nixed during the last provincial election would be built near the Lennox Generating Station, just west of Bath. The project represents an investment of more than $1 billion, said ministry officials. Bentley said an agreement was reached between the Ontario Power Authority and TransCanada energy to pave the way for the new plant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new site will take advantage of existing transmission lines and other infrastructure, as well as the expertise of local workers,â&#x20AC;? Bentley said in making the announcement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The construction of the plant is expected to provide up to 600 construction jobs and approximately 25 permanent jobs.â&#x20AC;? n In an effort to drive sales in the downtown during the holiday season, the Town of Greater Napanee was partnering with the Napanee BIA on a unique LED light show. Inspiration for the project came from the Rochester Michigan Downtown Development Area, which have seen economic spinoffs from their â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Big Bright Light Show.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The local partnership would see the launch of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Big Bright Light Showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in 2012 with 200,000 LED lights covering the building façades on Dundas Street between Centre and John Streets. James Timlin, the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Manager of Community and Corporate Services, said he found out about the Detroit show while searching for lights for Greater Napaneeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Festival of Lights. n While an intense rainstorm in September likely caused little concern among most local residents, those living along a narrow stretch west of Napanee got a first-hand demonstration of just how

destructive extreme weather can be. Environment Canada has confirmed that a tornado â&#x20AC;&#x201D; either a powerful F1 or a weak F2 twister â&#x20AC;&#x201D; touched down along Withers Road between Odessa and Napanee, and in the process flattened barns and garages, flipped trailers and tore roofs from buildings. Norm Snider, who owns a farm near the junction of Withers Road and Fralick Road, said he had no idea he was dealing with a tornado when the storm hit at around 10 a.m. As the twister was touching down just a few hundred metres to the west of his home, he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see anything. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I looked out the windows, it was just a big wall of white. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all I could see. And, my main concern was my kids, getting them to the basement,â&#x20AC;? he said. n While the back-to-school week is busy for most, it was especially trying for staff and students at Southview Public School, who were starting a new year in their new elementary school. But according to staff, the transition on the first day of school in September went off without a hitch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first day was fantastic. We had a lot of staff and people in the community commenting on how streamlined it was,â&#x20AC;? said Lani Fox, the new vice-principal at Southview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really came together in terms of the arrival of students and even the transportation of (Kindergarten) students to H.H. Langford went well.â&#x20AC;? Fox, the former vice-principal at Cataraqui Woods Elementary School in Kingston, said the highlight was seeing all the classrooms up and running, with the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Smart boards already being put to good use. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was fantastic to see and the students are really excited,â&#x20AC;? she said, pointing out that the faculty is making every effort to ensure classes are working together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You kind of feel like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re part of history so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about pulling it all together and having the building shine.â&#x20AC;?

2012 IN REVIEW: October

Hospital opens new chemotherapy unit n A diagnosis of cancer is an anxious time in itself, let alone factoring in all the chemotherapy treatments that can go along with it. Some of that stress was relieved in October when Lennox and Addington County General Hospital officially opened a Satellite Systemic Therapy Clinic. The centre is linked with the South East Regional Cancer Program and Kingston General Hospital, allowing patients to receive some of the same treatment in Napanee instead of travelling to Kingston. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really think that we have created something that will really service the community,â&#x20AC;? said LACGHâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Director of Patient Care Tracy Kent-Hillis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal was to respond to the request from the community for care thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close to home, and I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been able to do that with this space.â&#x20AC;? All diagnoses will be made at KGH and depending on the type of care they require, patients will have the choice of going to Kingston or the LACGH site. n In October, Governor General David Johnston visited Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University â&#x20AC;&#x201C; where he studied and taught law â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but not before making a stopover at a Habitat for Humanity build site in Bath. As patron of Habitat for Humanity Canada, Johnston said that seeing people helping others at such events has influenced him as the Governor General of Canada.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canada is a country where from the very beginning we have always helped our neighbours,â&#x20AC;? he told the Beaver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are a nation of barn builders. If a new person moves into the community you help them put up their barn, and if the barn burns down you help them put it back up.â&#x20AC;? As patron of Habitat for Humanity Canada, Johnston said that spirit is reflected through the organization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really reflects the spirit of volunteerism which defines Canadians,â&#x20AC;? he said. n A lack of public consultation by the proponent of a soil and wastewater treatment facility irked Greater Napanee Mayor Schermerhorn at a council meeting in October, as he sent the proponent of a back to the drawing board. An application from a Brighton-based company, DL Services Inc., to rezone lands located on the north side of Goodyear Road, east of County Road 41, was to be considered that night. But, once it became evident that it was the first public meeting in the process, the meeting was cut short. Before a capacity crowd at council chambers, Schermerhorn instructed the company to hold its own public meeting. n Colleen Cremasco, a senior letter carrier in Greater Napanee, said the town could be in for some big changes when it comes to local mail delivery.

Guilty verdict in dog drowning

n Evidence provided by a third eyewitness to the drowning death of a dog in April proved to be damning for Travis Haaksman and Carl Wood at their trial in November. Haaksman and Wood were found guilty on animal cruelty charges by Provincial Judge Geoff Griffin in Napanee provincial court at the young men’s trial. Haaksman’s dog, Jake, was found submerged in the bottom of a quarry north of Highway 401 on April 28. The dog was found attached to a cinder block by its leash and choke collar. Judge Griffin said the act of drowning the dog was “a criminal act of lunacy.” Sentencing for the two men — who were both 18 at the time of the dog’s death — was scheduled for Jan. 29, after Haaksman and Wood undergo a psychiatric evaluation. Neither Haaksman or Wood showed any emotion

as Griffin handed down his guilty plea. Earlier in the one-day trial, however, Haaksman became visibly agitated and physically ill; at one point, Haaksman was given a wastebucket in which to vomit. n The switch for the Big Bright Light Show was officially flipped for the first time in late November, illuminating downtown Napanee in a sea of dazzling colours. A large gathering of onlookers turned out for the ceremony, watching as the buildings along Dundas Street between John Street and Centre Street lit up the night sky. “Somebody said to me we’re expecting 400 to 500 (people at lighting),” said Napanee Mayor Gord Schermerhorn. “I said I’d be happy with 100. I think there are 1,000 or more here. It’s just great.” With the launch, Napanee became the first community in Canada to set up such a display. Accord to

James Timlin, Greater Napanee’s General Manager of Community and Corporate Services, Rochester, Michigan is the only other community he’s aware of that has a similar display. n Lennox and Addington County announced that it was moving ahead with a renovation and expansion of the Lennox and Addington Museum and Archives, to be completed in time for the county’s 150th anniversary celebrations in 2014. The overall cost of the project is $5 million; county council has been making annual allocations to fund the project since 1999. According to Mary Anne Evans, the Director of Information Services for the county, the project wasn’t initially planned to coincide with the county’s birthday when the reserve fund was initially established 13 years ago. However, Evans said, “council became very aware that it would be appropriate to have it coin-

cide with the anniversary. It’s really going to be the highlight of that celebration.” n Food Banks Canada released their 2012 numbers in November, indicating a 31 per cent jump in the amount of people who relied on their services. Here in Lennox and Addington, supply had a hard time keeping up with demand. “We were pretty much status quo as last year,” Napanee’s Salvation Army’s community and family services co-ordinator Dana Henry said of the number of people they helped. “The donations have gone down.” And while the number of families they help remains about the same, Henry finds that the size of the families have grown. Across Ontario close to 40 per cent of the people who relied on donations of food were children. In L&A County that number was on the rise as well.

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers Local 570 president outlined her concerns to council at a regular session in October. “I am concerned about what’s happening with a restructuring which is quite common in the past 10 years in most cities,” she told council. “One of the things that’s going on this time is that, on Oct. 12 one of our red boxes is leaving all the way down the Highway 401 corridor.” Mail that was traditionally processed in town and turned over the next day will now be processed in Toronto, she said.

Teachers stage one-day strike n Classes for Limestone District School Board elementary school students were cancelled on Dec. 20 as teachers staged a one-day strike in protest of Bill 115. The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario made the announcement a few days earlier. Limestone’s branch of the union followed on the heels of boards such as Toronto, Durham and Waterloo, where a one-day strike were held on Dec. 18. “It has certainly kept the issue in the forefront of the media,” Limestone union local president Mike Lumb said of the rotating province-wide strikes. “That’s what we’re trying to do is make people aware that this isn’t just about teachers. This is certainly not about pay. This is about people’s democratic rights. If a government thinks that they can close a legislature and put themselves above the courts of Ontario, put themselves above the Human Rights Commission and put themselves above the labour board, then what kind of democracy do we have here? This really doesn’t just affect teachers, it affects everybody.” Neither the teachers nor the provincial government were getting much in the way of sympathy from local MPP Randy Hillier. The Progressive Conservative Labour Critic said both sides in the dispute shared equal blame for the disruption. “What we’re seeing is the inevitability when you have union leaders acting in the same fashion the government is acting,” said Hillier. “They’re both being very unreasonable and they’re both being very belligerent. They’re acting in the same fashion

that they’re complaining the other side is being.” n The Napanee and District Chamber of Commerce might be involved in business, but soon they wouldn’t be in the tourism-promotion business. Greater Napanee is moving ahead with a plan to

take on the NDCC’s tourism role. As of January, the town was to have hired a new part-time tourism promotion position. In early 2013, the town will begin meeting with local tourism stakeholders and developing a tourism marketing plan and budget.

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK EVAN BROWN

Evan Brown is a member of the Napanee Raiders. He scored goals like there was no tomorrow on Dec. 21, potting four goals to lead the Raiders to a 5-4 win over the Port Hope Panthers. His outburst gives him 11 goals in 27 games played, though five of those have come in his last two. The rookie will hope to continue his pace.

SCORPIO (Oct 24/Nov 22) It takes more than just good ideas to find success, Scorpio. There is also a lot of follow-through and legwork that goes into every scenario. Start working through the particulars. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23/Dec 21) You won’t be able to rest until you solve a problem that has been bugging you, Sagittarius. But the solution won’t immediately present itself.

ARIES (Mar 21/Apr 20) Aries, there are some things that need to be accomplished this week despite the your reservations. Find a way to make the best of the situation. TAURUS (Apr 21/May 21) Taurus, enjoy an active week ahead that includes a very busy social schedule. Instead of trying to swim against the tide, let it take you along. GEMINI (May 22/Jun 21) Take care of things on your own this week, Gemini. Others around you will be just as busy, so put your head down and get started on the many tasks at hand. CANCER (Jun 22/Jul 22) Sarcasm is not the right approach this week, Cancer. Focus on being amiable to all of the people you interact with the next few days and reap the rewards. LEO (Jul 23/Aug 23) Secrets have a funny way of catching up with you, Leo. Although it can be hard to be honest, upcoming situations will work out much more easily if you are. VIRGO (Aug 24/Sept 22) You have no reason to question your confidence this week, Virgo. Give yourself a pep talk to make it through a sticky situation, and things will turn out alright.

SEASON… Party helped to ‘bring community together’

Ashley Arnold, owner and operator of Coffee Cravings, echoed Monster’s sentiments. His coffee shop — which featured live music from guitarist Matt English — was bustling with activity all night. “I definitely think it was one of the best we had,” said Arnold, who has taken part in every Shopping Party to date. “The camaraderie of people and

businesses all working together (was good to see). I wouldn’t necessarily say it was a night about business. It was a night about bringing the community together.” To that end, each business owner took the unorthodox approach of offering discounts on their goods in exchange for shoppers bringing in non-perishable food donations.

minute Christmas sales, store owners actually took a bit of a hit in favour of helping the Morning Star Mission, Salvation Army and Interval House. That sense of community togetherness is what Napanee tries to promote, hoping to encourage shoppers who want to avoid the bigger cities of Kingston, Ottawa or even Toronto. “It was so nice to see people out on the streets having a good time and enjoying the wagon rides and the reindeer, walking

around and having a great time,” added Arnold. He too feels the lights were a huge benefit to his business throughout the month of December. “I think it definitely created an air of excitement,” said Arnold. “It was something different. It just made people feel part of the Christmas spirit. It was a ‘wow’ factor. People could come down and see 170,000 plus lights that were on buildings. People were like ‘wow, that’s original.’ I think it created a

buzz in the air.” Expectations were high for the lights, but no one was really sure what kind of impact they’d have on the downtown. “In terms of feedback, I have heard a lot of wonderful things,” said Napanee Business Improvement Area Manager Tom Coke in an e-mail. “Store owners have noticed a lot more traffic in the downtown core. I have heard many stories about people coming into Napanee just to see the lights, from Kingston, even people driving from Toronto to Ottawa and stopping into Napanee on the way just because they have heard about the lights.” Coke says the BIA is

currently in the midst of creating a Big Bright Light Show committee that would steer the project going forward. The current light show will continue to shine through the month of January in the hopes of bringing in a few more tourists in the new year. Coke says there are plans of expanding the lights from one block to three for the 2013 Christmas season. In the meantime, the downtown core will turn its attention to another annual event, the Winter Chill Festival. That’s set to take place Jan. 19 from noon to 3 p.m. in the Market Square. That event will feature ice skating, snow volleyball, a chill cook-off and more.
