Downtown Napanee will be aglow in shimmering colour tomorrow night as the town flips the switch on another season of the Big Bright Lights. Businesses along Dundas Street will be illuminated by more than 400,000 LED bulbs to mark the unofficial start to the holiday shopping season. “We’ve got live music from 6-8 p.m., with four different groups performing,” said Lyndsay Tee, Economic Development Co-ordinator for the Town of Greater Napanee. “Santa Claus will also be in attendance and people can once again get their photo with Santa. We’ll have some free give aways throughout the evening as well.” Early forecasts say Mother Nature will be in full co-operation of Friday’s event, offering above-average temperature throughout the night, hovering around 5C into the early evening with little chance of rain. For an added effect, 3-D glasses will also be sold at the event. Those that wear the glasses and look at the lights will see dancing snowmen and falling snowflakes. Admission to the lighting ceremony and block party is free though organizers encourage guests to bring non-perishable food items for the local food bank. The items can be dropped off at the TD Bank. The lights will go on around 7 p.m. and light up every night throughout the holiday season and into early January. Displays won’t be limited to the downtown core as there will also be lights in Conservation Park, Springside Park and throughout the town. Tee says the lighting event was made possible by TransCanada and the Napanee BIA. This will mark the fourth year for the lights, which have proven to be a hit. The ceremony has traditionally drawn packed crowds to the downtown core. For the first time the lights have expanded passed Mill Street and will include The Napanee Beaver office. Tee says the town hopes to expand even further in 2016 and include more lights.

New MP Bossio settles into role BY SETH DUCHENE

Four-year-old Malachi Wittaker carefully carved a turtle from a bar of soap on Saturday at the Lennox and Addington County Museum and Archives. Members of the Quinte Wood Carvers Association mentored about 20 kids with their carving as part of the Museum Kids series.

New Hastings-Lennox and Addington MP Mike Bossio says his first weeks on the job have been busy — and there are no signs that things are going to let up anytime soon. “I’m running really hard. I see this avalanche coming and I’m running as fast as I can to stay ahead of it,” he told the Beaver in a telephone interview on Monday. At the same time, however, Bossio isn’t complaining. “I’m having the time of my life, I really am,” he said. “It really doesn’t get any better.” Bossio reports that he has spent most of his time since the Oct. 19 election in the riding, establishing the necessities for operating a constituency office. Right now, Bossio has a temporary constituency office set up at the Napanee Business Centre, but will move into a permanent space as soon as a location can be secured. He said that his central constituency office will be in Napanee, with the potential for days being set aside each

month in other communities in the riding. “I think that’s the most cost-effective way to do it,” he said. “I hate to penny-pinch, but you pretty much have to. It’s public money, and you’ve got to manage it in as frugal a way as possible, but not at the cost of doing the job right.” He says that, as he and his staff work to get these “one-off” items marked off the to-do list, the constituency caseload is already starting to build. “I’m just trying to stay out in front of things the best I can.” Bossio says that he has spent three days in Ottawa since the election. Although he didn’t attend the swearing-in of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet last Wednesday, he did attend a reception afterward. The night before the swearing-in, however, Bossio said that he and fellow rookie Liberal MP Neil Ellis of Bay of Quinte took an impromptu tour of Parliament Hill. He said he and Ellis were returning to their hotel rooms for the night when they passed in front of the Parliament buildings. “I think that was the

first moment when it really hit me. I looked up and said, ‘Holy jumpin’, Neil. That’s where we’re going to be working for four years.’” Bossio said. That’s when Ellis suggested they check it out — despite the fact that it was about 11:30 p.m. at the time. So, they approached security. Since MPs have 24hour access to Parliament Hill, they were ushered inside and given an informal tour. “We went into the legislative chamber, and I’m just standing there, looking around… saying, ‘Wow… this is so incredible.’” Bossio said he and the 213 other rookie MPs from all parties participated in an orientation session on

Parliament Hill. He said that halfway through the session, they were interrupted by Trudeau, who Bossio said talked to them about the fact that, despite their partisan differences, they were “all elected by Canadians to work for Canadians, to do the best we can for Canadians.” After Trudeau left, the clerk presiding over the orientation said that a prime minister had never made an appearance at an orientation session — at least as far back as John Diefenbaker. “It’s those sorts of things that give you that hope and that optimism that he walks the walk,” Bossio said. The new MP also said he’s pleased with Trudeau’s choices for cabinet, and that he’s already spoken informally to new Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay about farming issues. Bossio said that if the prime minister has any specific role planned for him in government, it hasn’t been relayed to him yet. In the meantime, however, Bossio says he’s got more than enough to do at the constituency level. “People elected me to do a job, and I want to try to do that job to the best of my ability. I love it. I’m trying to absorb and live every moment that I can.”

New LED lights set to be installed Man facing several Downtown lamps should weapons charges

provide more light, less cost

BY ASHLEY ESPINOZA Staff Reporter

By the end of the year, streets in Greater Napanee should be better lit due to upgrades to LED lighting. All 967 streetlights will be replaced by Dec. 10 and the energy savings will pay for themselves in three-anda-half years, Greater Napanee chief building official Charles McDonald explained. Additional LED (light-emitting diode) lighting will be installed at Town Hall and along Dundas Street when downtown roads and wiring is redone in 2017. Though the initial cost is a large number, coming in at about half a million dollars, McDonald said the town will be receiving a grant to help pay for the installation. “We’ll be receiving over $105,000 in incentives through the Ontario Power Authority to save on energy. Most importantly, the payback period is actually 3.4 years,” said McDonald. “There’s going to be a 63 per cent reduction in consumption and as we all know, energy costs are doing nothing but going up. I pulled last year’s figures and we spent $167,000 on energy on streetlights alone,

and that makes up 16 per cent of our entire municipal energy budget so we’re really excited about seeing the savings,” McDonald added. Maintenance costs are expected to decrease by up to 80 per cent. The municipality has hired Local Authority Services and its partner RealTerm Energy for the streetlight replacement program, which is the same team that has improved lighting in nearby municipalities, including the Town of Deseronto and Stone Mills Township. Chris Henry, of RealTerm Energy, said they have received positive feedback from neighbouring municipal clients. “The one really nice comment we got was from a pilot in Trenton who said that you can now see the runway because of less light pollution. We also get comments from people who say they haven’t seen the stars in 30 or 40 years and now they’re able to see them because there’s (less) light pollution,” he said, explaining how LED lights shine directly at the ground, rather than wasting energy lighting outward. “LEDs are directional. As long as it’s level, it’s shining straight down so there’s no light pollution going off

A Loyalist Township man has been charged with a number of weapons and other offences after an incident near Yarker last week. The Napanee OPP report that at around 5:40 p.m. on Wednesday, officers with the Loyalist detachment were dispatched to the Yarker area to investigate a report of threatening. According to the OPP, the accused allegedly became involved in a confrontation in the woods with another man and his son. The following day at 1 p.m., members of the Napanee OPP Crime Unit and the Tactics and Rescue Unite executed a search warrant at a residence on Wilson Road in Loyalist. The suspect was arrested at the scene and charged with the following offences: three counts of pointing a firearm; three counts of assault with a weapon; two counts of threatening to cause death or serious bodily harm; and one count each of carrying a concealed weapon, unauthorized possession of a restricted or prohibited weapon, unauthorized possession of a firearm, careless use of a firearm, use of a firearm while committing an indictable offence, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and being the occupant of a motor vehicle knowing there was a firearm present. He has since also been charged with production of marijuana. The man, 52, was held in custody for a bail hearing in Napanee this week.

Correction A story on Page 29 of last week’s Napanee Beaver contained some incorrect information. The date of the Bath Public School fundraising bazaar and silent auction is Nov. 21. Also, the school parent advisory council treasurer is Shawna Greyling. The Beaver apologizes for the error and any confusion it may have caused.

Sunday concert to support refugee family from Syria BY ASHLEY ESPINOZA Staff Reporter

A group of concerned residents are fundraising to support a Syrian family that is fleeing that war-torn country to live in Napanee. The Lennox and Addington Refugee Group Enthusiasts (LARGE) has been meeting once a month since the spring to come up with ways to sponsor a Syrian family in Napanee. There is a core group of nine people working to fundraise the necessary funds to cover the costs of housing, clothing, NOVEMBER 12 MAPLE RIDGE WOMEN’S INSTITUTE Meeting at 1 p.m. at the L&A County Memorial building (Robert Street entrance). Guest speaker is Marilyn Kendall, on the topic ‘From Memories to Memoirs.’ Roll call: a favourite memory. For information call 613-354-9898. L&A SOS SOCIAL DINER At Napanee Lions Hall, noon-1:30 p.m. Beef stew with hot biscuits, and delicious desserts. Entertainment by the Dunlops and Friends. Seating is limited so book early. All those

food, medical and dental services, schooling, job training, translation and transportation for one year. Jeffery Sloan, a founding member of the LARGE sponsorship group, said the fundraising goal is at $30,000 for a family of three to four children. However, if the family they choose to sponsor has more children, then more funds will be necessary. He added that federal government dollars are currently matching Syrian sponsorship dollars, which makes every dollar raised locally stretch a lot further. “We’ve all been aware

Emma McNichols, and raised $1,560. The next fundraiser is this Sunday at Trinity United Church, featuring the Shout Sisters choir. Part of preparing for the sponsorship has been learning about sponsorship requirements and responsibilities. Sloan said it’s been a huge learning curve for the group but it’s now prepared to take on a family in early 2016. “We have learned a great deal about the refugee sponsorship process through the diligent work of our members. Sponsorship

over the last years about the war in Syria and how many millions of people have been displaced by that. They are living in refugee camps and in rather disturbing conditions in the Middle East. In the last couple months, we’ve seen a lot more about the people who are moving into Europe and migrants trying to escape the violence. We wanted to respond to that humanitarian crisis and provide a safe haven to even one family,� said Sloan. LARGE held its first fundraiser on Oct. 24, which was a concert at Grace United Church by Sam and

is a complex process that involves many steps as well as a considerable amount of fundraising,� said Sloan. “We are very excited about this venture and hope to have a family in our area sometime in 2016, so we are starting our fundraising efforts. After the family arrives, we will require many helpers to assist with the family, who will have a lot to learn about Canada and make many adjustments.� Sloan added that fundraising efforts would continue once the family has arrived.

Picturing Our Community

A portrait of ourselves

J. Earl Morrison, Owner-Publisher, 1953-1978

It didn’t take long for the new Liberal government to start stepping on toes in Ottawa. So what was the first to end up in the crosshairs? The monarchy.

While we’re sure that there are some Canadians that would like us to jettison our connection to the British monarchy for good, we’re not sure it’s a movement that enjoys much popular support. At the same time, we are a sovereign country. The person occupying the British throne has long since abandoned any authority over our foreign policy decisions — and the foreign policy of Great Britain too, for that matter — and we set our own course about how we interact with the Napanee Beaver - 40005335 world. Therefore, it’s fair that a representation of The entire content of The Beaver what we are as a country — embodied in those is protected by copyright. No paintings — should be hanging in the front hallway of the Global Affairs office. It’s a case of a portion thereof is to be reprogovernment making a break with the governduced without permission of the ment that came before, but it’s not much more publisher. than that — and it’s a reasonable change.

Letter to the Editor

Mark Human Rights Day on Dec. 10 If you are reading this, you are someone able to exercise your right to access public information, a freedom not enjoyed by all of the world’s citizens. If you voted in the recent federal election, you accessed your right to freedom of expression regarding our political future. These and 28 more rights and freedoms are enjoyed by all Canadians because Canada is a signator to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This groundbreaking document of 1948, co-authored by Canadian lawyer John Humphrey, is the benchmark for guaranteeing the

world’s citizens freedom from repression and reprisals by their government. Any time you complain about a government policy, access the court system, travel, speak another language, use a lawyer or got to a union meeting without fear of any government backlash, your right to do so is protected by this declaration. International Human Rights Day will be celebrated across the globe on Dec. 10. In Canada, it is a day to celebrate our own freedoms but also to be aware of how many other citizens need help accessing theirs.

Napanee’s Branch 150 of Amnesty International will be marking this day at the Napanee Public Library on Dec. 10 between 2-6:30 p.m. The public library itself is such a symbol in the community of our ability to gather freely and safely with others to exchange ideas. Drop by the library for a cup of cider that afternoon and see how your routine activities fit into the overall pattern of the rights and freedoms we enjoy. Do it because you can!

COMMENT / 7

B E AV E R

Looking ahead to town budget UMEROUS meeting dates have been set to discuss the components of the 2016 budget: Nov. 19, Dec. 3, Jan. 19, and Feb. 4. Each meeting will cover a different part of the budget. On Oct. 27, there was an opportunity for the people of Greater Napanee to go to the council meeting to offer suggestions toward the budget process or to offer ways to save money toward a zero budget increase for 2016. When the public was called upon to speak, nobody said a word. In my opinion, there was a misunderstanding in the wording. While council was looking for suggestions for new projects I, for one, was expecting to be asked for suggestions to cut budget expenses. Hopefully, more people will attend future events and present ideas when called upon to do so. Ladies and gentlemen of Greater Napanee, the budget for our town is an important matter to all of us as it will lead to our taxation rates for 2016. It is in our best interest to attend council meetings and share ideas that could save us money and/or give us the opportunity to ask our council members for some information regarding

N

Pierre Cliche

Cheers & Jeers expenses of special interest to us. If none of us suggests nor questions anything, then we will be in a position where we will have to accept whatever the Council decides. We must all get involved — using email, phone or deputations — to make our voices heard. If none of us asks questions or makes suggestions then it is a guarantee that none of the changes we may anticipate, will occur. Between 2005 and 2014 the operating budget has increased by 69 per cent or $7.5 million; our net levy 79 per cent or $3.5 million; the capital budget 186 per cent or $3.2 million; capital rev-

enue 221 per cent or $3 million; general government 70 per cent or $943,000; police costs have doubled by $2.2 million; arena costs 173 per cent or $1.05 million; fire and emergency 82 per cent or $800,000; garbage and recycling 56 per cent or $237,000; recreation administration 34 per cent or $104,000; animal by-law 40 per cent or $48,000; conservation authority 84 per cent or $70,000; and parks and ball fields 61 per cent or $15,000. Of course, we would expect some increases over the course of 10 years, but what is reasonable? You decide. The overall budget over the 10 years increased by $10,205,558 which is equal to roughly one million per year or 81 per cent overall. Since the rate of inflation averaged approximately 1.6 per cent per year (since the population has only increased by 199 people from 15,312 to 15,551 between 2000 and 2011 according to statistics which is only a .013 per cent growth) how can we not question the average expenditures at 8.1 per cent per year? I did some research over three months to compare what taxpayers pay in Toronto for their taxes compared to those in Greater

Climate change a priority: MP Re: ‘Bossio urged to address climate issues’, Nov. 5 Napanee Beaver. I would like to thank Cam Mather for his letter. Cam and I both share a passion for dealing with climate issues, and recognize the urgency that these issues be dealt with immediately. I have tremendous respect for Cam as a person who walks the walk when it comes to climate change. I am happy that he agrees that our government has taken some good initial steps to illustrate our commitment for dealing with climate issues seriously and not just play lip service. I am proud that PM Justin Trudeau invited Green Party Leader Elizabeth May to attend the Paris climate summit and I am equally proud that our PM has appointed Stéphane Dion as Minister of Foreign Affairs and Catherine McKenna as Minister of Environment and Climate Change. These appointments send a clear signal that we take climate change seriously and wish to make a breakthrough in these talks and beyond. Where Cam and I differ is on the path to developing a solution. The Green Party

Napanee. The results showed that a $834,000 home in Toronto is taxed at $4,800 per year, while the same taxes are charged for a home in Greater Napanee valued at $278,000 — three times less. Taxes are just too high. Do we really need 61 town vehicles? Perhaps it may be much more economical to rent a car or truck or pay mileage instead? Should the arena be selfsufficient to a net zero for taxes by reviewing expenses and the number of activities, shows and tournaments? All of these are questions to think about. The more I look at the financial reports, the more questions I have. The key here is to focus on how Greater Napanee can do more for all of us, while spending less. It is, therefore, important that you communicate with members of council — to offer suggestions in a positive light — because we all care and want to help be part of this important process. This week there are no cheers or jeers, just a request that as many people as possible become involved with the budget process. Your contribution will be worthwhile.

sees as a carbon tax as the only solution moving forward, but many different jurisdictions within Canada and around the world have already implemented climate solutions that are not carbon tax based. We have tried and failed to dictate solutions from on high. If we expect to deal with climate change it is imperative that we have buy-in from all levels of government. It is unfortunate that we were not able to agree on a solution before the provinces decided to go it on their own, but now that they have started on their own path to a solution we must find a way to agree on overall reductions in energy use and fossil fuels. There is no one-solution-fits-all in Canada; each province has its own unique advantages and challenges in dealing with climate change and reducing dependence on non-renewable energy. We therefore have to work together, all stakeholders, to agree upon a short, medium, and long-term solution. I agree that we cannot waste any time in finding solutions to deal with climate change. We are already going to have to adapt to the

effects of climate change and they are only going to get worse. But we have to go much further than carbon taxes. We must educate society about the serious nature of the issue, as well as the large and small things that both society and each individual can do bring about positive change. There needs to be evidence-based discussion with all stakeholders to bring about the societal changes that will lead to changes in consumption, transportation, energy reduction and production, globalization, etc. I will work hard to make sure that our government stays focussed on finding solutions to climate change. We are fortunate that the Cam Mathers of the world and the Green Party will continue to yell from the rooftops and hold our feet to the fire to make sure we do not allow ourselves to become distracted by the myriad day-to-day problems that also need attention. This issue to too important to us all, we must keep it front of mind. Mike Bossio, MP, Hastings-Lennox and Addington

Details matter in sign cartoon The Napanee Beaver ‘Our Town’ cartoon on Oct. 29 featured individuals reusing election signs, including one seeming to represent my candidacy. The Green Party of Hastings-Lennox and Addington Electoral District Association chose not to use election signs in this election. We felt that with the issue of landfills so relevant in our area it would send the wrong message using a single-use product with a candidate’s name, not to mention the clutter they add to our local landscape. Since the artist was nevertheless aware of our participation in the campaign (despite the lack of signs), it’s just like the bus shelter ads say: ‘you just proved that our strategy worked.’ Cam Mather, former Green Party candidate for Hastings-Lennox and Addington.

n Lennox and Addington County’s acting medical officer of health Dr. R.A. McLellan said that the county was experiencing a spike in the number of cases of scarlet fever and strep throat, and most of the cases were centred around Tamworth and Sheffield Township. Although the number of cases were higher than usual, Dr. McLellan said that the severity of the disease did not appear to be as acute as previous outbreaks. He indicated that patients could recover without antibiotic treatment, although those who were treated with antibiotics responded well to that therapy. n Seven of nine municipalities in the Napanee high school district gave their approval for a proposed $2 million expansion at Napanee District Secondary School. A majority of at least five municipalities was needed before Lennox and Addington County council could approve the issue of a $650,000 debenture for the project. Up to that date, only one municipality had declined to approve the expansion: Camden East Township. Adolphustown Township had yet to consider and vote on the matter.

35 Years Ago November 12, 1980

n The future of a bus-manufacturing company in Deseronto was very much up in the air — much to the chagrin of the factory’s 106 employees. The Superior Deseronto Division, ShellerGlobe of Canada plant was being put up for sale. The school-bus manufacturing facility had only opened five years earlier. “The whole transportation division (of the company) is closing,” said William Giddy, plant manager. “This is one small facet of the division.” The company was also in the process of disposing of plants in Manitoba and Ohio. The closure was being blamed on a poor economy and declining markets. n After a few years away from council, Lorne Smart was back as Mayor of Napanee. Smart defeated outgoing reeve Ernie Marshall 1,332 to 600. Mayor Glenn Herrington did not run for re-election. Herbert Hayes narrowly defeated Reg Vick for the job of deputy-reeve. Former deputy-reeve Grant Clark had been acclaimed as reeve. Elected as councillors were Jim Madden, Sue Sinclair, Ken Mifflin, Clarence Milligan, Cummings Daverne and ex-mayor Herrington.

Artist makes stop in Napanee ‘Mellow Lily’ set to perform at Chit Chat Café next week BY SETH DUCHENE Editor

Up-and-coming artist Kathryn Nemcsok will be bringing her show to the Chit Chat Café and Corner Market in Napanee on Nov. 17. Performing a blend of folk, pop and country, Nemcsok — who tours under the stage name ‘Mellow Lily’ — is no stranger to the stage. “I have been performing for over 20 years now, with the last six being professionally,” she told the Beaver. Nemcsok grew up in Kirkland Lake, Ont, but currently calls Rouyn-Noranda, Que. home. She says she draws plenty of musical inspiration from her northern background. Although she has yet to record a full-length album, ‘Mellow Lily’ has recorded two five-song EPs — one of which is available on iTunes. She has also notched a number of achievements along the way, including earning a top-10 finish in a country-singing showcase in Kingston, and being a finalist in the Jason McCoy Caroling Contest. She has also opened for Grammy Award nominee Della Mae and Juno and Canadian Country Music Award winner Crystal Shawanda. While Nemcsok says her ultimate goal is to secure a recording contract, the act of performing is always something that brings her joy — and it’s something that makes her show accessible and engaging. “Her vocals combined with her unique stage presence give her an air of approachability, and she is always open to meeting her audiences. Because of this, she has earned a reputation among her many followers for being a genuine individual with a glowing personality,” her website reads. As for the Napanee show, she says the audience can expect a variety. “I will be playing a mix of covers like CCR, Metallica, Taylor Swift, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and more, but I will also be playing a lot of my originals, and I will have CDs for sale with my originals. I am going to be playing a lot of fun, upbeat songs, in case people want to dance,” she said. For more information about Nemcsok and samples of her music, visit mellowlily.com. A buffet dinner begins at 6 p.m. and includes soups, salads, entrees, desserts and coffee/tea for $29.95 (taxes included). The show begins at 7 p.m. Seating is limited, all 613-3542900 to reserve.

A book that combines the life of Sir John A. Macdonald, paralleled with the culinary history of the time, makes for a lighthearted piece of local history. Lindy Mechefske released her book, Sir John’s Table, in September and will be in Napanee next week to discuss it. The book travels through Canada’s first prime minister’s childhood, youth and adulthood and shows how the revolution of Sir John A. Macdonald’s life could also be told through what he was eating at the time. “Our earliest knowledge of him is this five-year-old crossing on the Earl of Buckinghamshire to Upper Canada and they’re eating watered-down stew and the most appalling, unsanitary conditions. His family was impoverished; his father’s businesses had failed,” Mechefske explained. “It was a horrendous crossing. Those ships were called coffin ships because so many people died. He goes from that, from poverty and horrendous conditions, terrible food, to dining with Queen Victoria and these lavish dinners with 1,200 people, with champagne. It just struck me that you can tell so much about his life and his revolution to the food,” she added. The story travels through his years of stealing food as a child to later becoming a successful lawyer, father and eventually prime minister. However, alongside that story is the story of food evolving over time. When Sir John A.

Macdonald and his family moved to Upper Canada in the 1920s, all food was prepared on a hearth. The first cast-iron oven wasn’t introduced in Upper Canada until 1935 and preserving and canning did not become the norm until the 1940s and later. “I had no idea if there were enough stories to do what I wanted to do. I read six biographies and then I got into the archives and started digging around for evidence of the food and it turns out there was a lot. It was an interesting process; I was researching two things at once — his life and the culinary history of the time,” Mechefske said. ‘Chapter Two, Boyhood: A Fish Tale 1820-1825’ tells a story of Sir John A. Macdonald as a nine-year-old boy hungry for black bass. The boy introduced himself to a fisherman and after talking for some time, the fisherman cast his rod, at which time John A. stole the largest black bass in the man’s pile and ran home. Later in his career, the man confronts Sir John A. Macdonald and he makes a speech about stealing the fish, which is also recorded in the second chapter of the book: “What my old neighbour has told you about the theft of his beautiful fish is absolutely true. I can recall as though it were but yesterday how frightened I was at that unearthly yell of our good friend, which almost caused me to drop the fish so as to make better speed, but I managed to hold onto it when I saw he was not chasing me. I was clean out of breath when I burst into the house and fell headlong with it on the floor, and

gasped for breath as I told my father where I found it, and that there were lots more like it where this came from. I humbly beg your pardon, Guy (Casey), and my only regret is that I can’t steal another one like it here tonight and have it for breakfast in the morning. Mother said it was the best black bass she ever cooked.” Mechefske’s quest to write her book, Sir John’s Table, began with a hunt for a rare cookbook called Dora’s Cookbook, written by Dora Fairfield and published in 1888. There are only two known copies of the book; one in Califonria and the other is in the Lennox and Addington County Museum and Archives. “I went to find it because she dedicated a recipe to Sir John A., it’s kind of a bread pudding,” said Mechefske, adding it was thanks to the museum’s thorough archives that she was inspired and write her book. “What a brilliant job the archives did. It’s a fabulous resource; it’s really rare. It’s really a treasure of archival material,” she added. “I started going through archives and found out all these fantastic stories about his life that had never been told. It’s funny to me because people keep commenting that I wrote about a politician but that’s all irrelevant to me, he just felt like a historical Canadian figure… For me the idea of using food as the lens to look at life is interesting,” said Mechefske. Mechefske will be taking part in the Tuesday Night at the Museum series next week. She will be talking about her book at the museum next Tuesday starting at 7 p.m. Admission is $3 at the door.

Juno-winner Lynn Miles to perform in Tamworth BY ASHLEY ESPINOZA Staff Reporter

NE of Canada’s most gifted singer/songwriters will be bringing her talent to Tamworth this month. Lynn Miles will be performing in Tamworth next Saturday as part of the Tamworth and Erinsville Community Development Committee Concert Series. She has written hundreds of songs and is now using her skill and talent to teach others. “I’ve been songwriting since I was nine years old and I have 900 songs so I feel like I know what I’m doing. I really enjoy the teaching part of it; I think I learn more than the students do just by talking out loud about songwriting. It’s a pretty solitary exercise so it’s sort of nice to share it with people and see how other people approach it,� said Miles. “It’s how you see the world and it’s always interesting to hear other

O

people talk about that because that inspires my songwriting.� Keith Glass, formerly a guitarist and songwriter for Prairie Oyster, has been working with Miles as her guitarist for over 15 years. He will be accompanying her in Tamworth. “Keith and I have a really tight show. We have acoustic guitars, mandolin, harmonica, and harmonies. I’ll be playing some old songs and new songs,� she said. “Just a real mix of what Keith and I do best.� Glass recently built a new home studio and has been working with Miles on producing a new album, which will be ready this December. Miles said it’s an album about winter and though it will be released after Tamworth’s show, she hopes to have some copies available at the concert. Glass has known Miles for more than 20 years and said Miles is an all around exceptional performer and that her next album will be

She truly is a phenomenon; she’s a really great singer, a really great guitar player and just a terrific songwriter,� commented Glass. Miles said her music and inspiration for writing has changed over her years as a singer-songwriter, lending her to have a diverse library of songs. She pulls inspiration from everything and everywhere she can. “I’ve always, always had curiosity about basically everything.

Try a graphic novel RAPHIC novels, books (fiction and non-fiction) composed of comics content, are becoming more and more mainstream. However, despite the growing popularity of graphic novels, certain stereotypes of both graphic novels and their readers still persist. The idea that dominates the public perception is that graphic novels are the same thing as Archie and superhero comics, a form of simplified reading enjoyed primarily by socially awkward pre-teen boys. This is not the case! Like all books, graphic novels tell many different stories for many different readers. I read my first graphic novel only just this year. Seconds by Bryan Lee O’Malley, the Canadian author of the popular Scott Pilgrim series, is the story of a talented young chef with big plans. Katie’s life is going perfectly… until it’s not. All at once, progress on her new restaurant location bogs down, her charming ex-boyfriend pops up, her fling with another chef goes sour, and her best waitress gets badly hurt. What she needs is a second chance. Luckily for Katie, a mysterious girl appears in the middle of the night with simple instructions for a do-over: write down your mistake, eat a magical mushroom and go to sleep. And just

G

like that, when Katie wakes up all the bad stuff never happened. The magic isn’t over yet, however. She has a dresser drawer full of more magical mushrooms — and an irresistible urge to make her life not just good, but perfect. Naturally, Katie will go overboard and face surprising consequences.

Catherine Coles Coles Notes First of all, the graphics of this novel are beautiful. The whimsical drawings perfectly reflect the whimsical story. Similar to how children’s picture books will interesting details in their illustrations to further engage readers, Seconds has graphics so filled with detail that you could probably read it several times without catching all of it. The story is fun and moves the reader along quickly. It is an easy read, yes, but it was written with a mature audience (teens and adults) in mind. Another book that would be a good choice for the reader who considers his or herself too highbrow for graphic novels is Persepolis, an autobiographical graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi depicting her childhood up to her early adult years in Iran during and after the Islamic revolution.

A Veteran Remembers In Wilton

This book and its sequel Persepolis 2 are widelyacclaimed. They have won all kinds of awards, been translated into several languages and even adapted for film. The subject matter is more serious than some might have expected from a ‘comic book’ and, as such, it has been included on the American Library Association’s list of frequently challenged books. It had been challenged for “gambling, offensive language and political viewpoint” and was banned in some schools. Described as “wise, funny and heartbreaking”, Persepolis is an education for anyone who doesn’t know very much about Iran or its modern history. Who would have thought you could get that from a comic book? If I have convinced you to try a graphic novel, consider joining County of L&A Libraries’ online book club on Goodreads (www.goodreads.com). This month our theme is ‘Try a graphic novel’ and you’ll be able to pick up some suggestions from library staff and other users. Seconds and Persepolis can be reserved from the County of L&A Libraries online at www.countylibrary.ca or at your local branch. Catherine Coles is the Manager of Library Services for Lennox and Addington County. Ashley Espinoza-Staff

James Reynolds, a 95-year-old Second World War veteran, participated in the Wilton Remembrance Day ceremony. He enrolled in the military on his 21st birthday in 1941 and served as a corporal in the Royal Canadian Air Force. The ceremony, organized by the Odessa and District Lions Club, was well-attended by local residents, students and members of military.

School issues The hula hoop comes around again charity challenge Staff Reporter

Southview Public School is challenging all schools to raise money for Operation Warm Toes. For the second year in a row, Southview is selling hot dogs to raise money for Operation Warm Toes, a program that provides warm winter boots to children under 18 across the region. Last year the school raised about $450 and The Prince Charles School accepted Southview’s challenge, raising approximately another $400 from hot dog sales. Marsha Beebe is heading up the Southview hot dog fundraiser and hopes even more schools will participate this year. She said the fundraiser is win-win for local students. “The kids get a hot dog, the proceeds go to Warm Toes,” said Beebe, adding that the fundraiser comes full circle since hundreds of boots are provided to local students each year. “They don’t have to do a hot dog day if they don’t want to but it’s kind of fun because everybody wins. When you are the person that’s bringing hot dogs to a classroom, those kids think you’re a superhero.” Beebe has taken to social media to prompt other schools to get on board with fundraising for Operation Warm Toes. Through Facebook, three schools have already shown an interest in the project. “Hopefully we can get the word out there and raise lots of money for Operation Warm Toes again this year,” said Beebe. Southview is having its hot dog lunch fundraiser on Nov. 27 and selling hotdogs for $2. “We’d like to challenge all other local schools on a per capita basis to see who shows the most support. It’s such a great cause and by doing it this way lots of kids come out smiling,” Beebe said. “Last year about two thirds of our students bought hotdogs so we’d like to bump it up to about three quarters.” Courtney Bowering, Napanee Community Health Centre community development worker, said previously this year that the need for warm winter boots has increased by 100, which means there is a need for approximately 400 winter boots this year. “We plan to have the money by Christmas so the bill for the boots can be paid and then direct any funds toward other projects if needed to, if there’s extra,” said Beebe. Operation Warm Toes is funded through community donations and in partnership with the Salvation Army, the Napanee Community Health Centre and the Poverty Reduction Committee. To register a child for winter boots, or to make a donation, contact Bowering at 613-354-8937 ext. 7117. ‘TIS THE REASON’… ‘Tis the Reason;’ A Christmas Sale of Fair Trade Gifts and Food from around the world, on Nov. 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Grace United Church, 150 Robert St. in Napanee.

Southview PS looking to raise funds for Operation Warm Toes

The old expression ‘reinventing the wheel’ was never more applicable than when it is applied to the hula hoop. In essence, this toy/exercise item was not an invention, but the revival of a long-standing concept — but with the focus being enjoyment, not engineering. In 1957, Richard Knerr and Arthur Melin were in conversation with a visitor from Australia, who casually made reference to a bamboo hoop which was being utilized for exercise in gym classes. Armed with this seed thought, which that information spawned, the pair proceeded to manufacture their own version, made from a newly-invented durable plastic called Malex. The resulting product went on sale the following year —they called it the Hula Hoop. Some senior citizens will recall their carefree days as children when they ran alongside a similar item—probably the metal rim from a broken buggy wheel—clouting it with a sturdy stick to keep it rolling. According to historians, some 3,000 years ago in ancient Egypt, hoops made out of grapevines were likewise propelled along the ground with sticks. Down through the centuries these loops have been made of metal, bamboo, wood, and — as mentioned above — vines woven together. Apparently there was a revival of this fad in 14th century Great Britain. During that era, sometimes they were again rolled along the ground — in other cases carried around the waist — suggesting that some movement was needed to keep them from biting the dust.

tion of all garden magazines in the world. I have been a keen study of Rodale’s work ever since we had our first baby 31 years ago. I recall looking at our little bundle of joy and thinking that the arsenal of chemicals in my garden shed stood in stark contrast to the responsibility that I felt for this helpless creature. We welcomed the baby into the house and I gave all of my weed and bug killers to my Dad, who was happy to oblige. There is never a bad time to think through our habits and why we have them. Now is as good a time as any to consider ‘going organic’. Better food. We think of organic gardening for the most part as it relates to edible garden plants and fruit. When you grow a tomato plant in your garden or condo balcony you have an opportunity to control what is used to protect it from insects and disease and the source of nutrients that it receives: synthetic or natural? Fact is, you can grow great food organically in the

We condition the plants in our garden by our habits: if you apply chemical/synthetic fertilizers to the soil in your effort to grow them, your plants will not perform as well in the absence of said products. Conversely, when you use compost and natural products to nurture your garden plants their growth is sustained for longer periods of time and they are generally healthier than the nonorganic alternatives. Plants feed themselves. Leaves and garden ‘debris’ are valuable sources of natural nutrients and fibre to all of your garden plants. The leaves that we habitually rake, bag and haul to the end of the driveway this time of year for pick up contain pure carbon (good carbon) that,

when broken down by natural processes in the soil, actually benefit all living plants. Think about that and begin to question why we put leaves out to the curb at all. It is a silly waste of money and resources. I say, “Save that money and put it into municipal tree planting”. Fewer weeds. Take your lawn for example: when 2,4D was available we became used to the idea that a weed would die within a week of application. So what? In the absence of the weed, another weed made its way into your lawn creating the need to reapply the 2,4D. It was an endless cycle and we were addicted to it. Now it is common practice to leave nitrogen-rich grass clippings on the lawn to rot down into the root zone and benefit grass plants. We cut our lawn higher than we did a generation ago: six to eight centimetres. We thicken the lawn with quality fertilizers (there are many natural ones on the market, the most popular being corn gluten) and we spread triple mix and quality lawn seed over the thin spots to compete weeds out of existence. We have become more patient: it takes up to two years to experience a ‘weed free’ lawn using the popular methods mentioned here, but it is a much more sustainable approach than chemical weed killing. Death = Life. The never ending cycle of growing, flowering and fruiting attracts native pollinators

like bees and hummingbirds and in the end a dead plant. The foundation of all great soil is decaying and rotting plant material. Without it we have clay and sand – two elements of good soil but too much of either produces a very poor garden. Nature is the ultimate recycler. She created the original ‘ashes to ashes’ concept and it has worked for her since the beginning of time. Why would we not want to get in on it? Organic = Sustainable. The use of the word ‘organic’ can get lost in technicalities and language that is difficult to understand. The Rodale Institute (rodaleinstitute.org/) provides tremendous depth of knowledge on the subject, if you are interested in learning more. But for most of us it is instructive to note that the absence of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers can be very useful in any case. There are many ‘natural’ products on the shelves of garden retailers that are designed to help you grow a great garden sustainably. I might add that it often pays to just relax a little and let Mother Nature take care of the garden for you. The aphids that are munching down on your Shasta daisy today will fly away tomorrow and your daisies will be none the worse for wear. Mark Cullen appears on Canada AM every Wednesday morning at 8:40.

NDSS alumni shine at Panthers leapfrog Raiders CIS rugby championship Port Hope wins Three Napanee players take part BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

trio of former NDSS Golden Hawks returned to familiar territory this weekend to take part in the CIS Women’s Rugby Championship, hosted at Queen’s University’s Nixon Field. Hannah Bradshaw (Queen’s), Fiona McNeillKnowles (Ottawa University) and Danielle Leonard (Concordia), all from the graduating class of 2012, helped their teams to a second, third and fourth place finish respectively. For Queen’s and Ottawa U their finish was a historic one, marking the highest finish for either school in club history. Each player was equally as proud of their own success as they were their fellow alumni’s. “The three of us started at NDSS from Grade 9 through Grade 12,” said McNeill-Knowles. “That was a lot of fun to see them there.” Not surprisingly, those teams were KASSAA powerhouses of their time, regularly qualifying for OFSAA. “I think it really helped our development,” Leonard said of playing on those strong Hawks teams. “I know talking to Fiona, we always say we’re thankful to have Sean (Dunleavy) as a coach to not only develop our skills but his love of rugby rubbed off on us. It’s not just the skills he taught us but he taught us to love the game.” Dunleavy has coached several Hawks teams in the past and is an assistant coach with Golden Gaels. All three girls were quick to credit him for getting them started in the sport. That passion for the game still burns bright for the local women and they showed it on Saturday. “It was a good feeling going into the game knowing that we were making history,” Bradshaw said of heading into the gold medal game against McMaster. “A gold would have been a cherry on top, but there is as

A

much pride (in setting a new school record) as winning the gold.” McMaster would go on to a 27-3 victory over the Golden Gaels. Bradshaw, a fourth year member of the team, saw plenty of action in the second half. “Being part of that team for four years takes you through a lot of phases,” said Bradshaw. “We’ve been to CIS, we got fifth place in my first year. The year after that we made it to Nationals and were third. Last year we didn’t make CIS. To come back this year and make a comeback like this is especially exciting.” For McNeill-Knowles’ Gee-Gees, they finished the tournament with a 65-7 win over Concordia to claim bronze. It was her second appearance at a CIS championship and first medal. Playing in Kingston, it was like a home game. “It was nice to see close friends from high school that I played rugby with at NDSS and see some of their games, it was a lot of fun,” said McNeill-Knowles. “It was fun to play on the field I played on when I played in Kingston.” Leonard says it was disappointing for the Stingers to finish out of the medals but it was still a marked improvement over their pretournament ranking as the sixth seed. “We’re happy with that, fourth in the country is nothing to frown about but we’re disappointed with not getting a medal,” she added. Both Leonard and Bradshaw will now shift their focus from 15s to 7s and also have plans to return for a fifth year of university rugby. McNeill-Knowles isn’t sure if she’ll be back for another year or not. All three do however plan check up on their high school club. “I’d love to get involved where it all got started, it’d be a lot of fun,” said McNeill-Knowles. “We’re lucky enough that even a small town has such a rugby program with people like Britt Benn representing Canada. It’s just really nice to have that rugby culture in such a small town.”

third straight over Napanee

BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

The Napanee Raiders were swept out of their penthouse suite atop the league standings this week, suffering back-to-back losses to the hard charging Port Hope Panthers. Their latest loss, a 6-2 defeat Tuesday night on home ice, knocking them into second place in the Empire B League standings by a single point. “I thought we had a decent first period, started out pretty good in the second, then it wasn’t pretty after that,” said Raiders head coach Mike Hartwick. Zach Knapp-Hermer opened the scoring for Napanee, striking at the 3:11 mark of the first. The lead lasted just over a minute as Port Hope responded on the powerplay, their first of three straight goals with the man advantage. All told they scored five unanswered times before Zack Revell found the back of the Panther net at the 12:52 mark

The Panthers added an empty-net goal to ice the victory. “They simplify and get pucks to the net, we’re not paying the price and getting into lanes and we never executed on the PK tonight,” Hartwick said of his club, noting his opponents were 3-5 on the power-play while Napanee was shutout in the nine opportunities they had. “They make traffic and get pucks to the net and make it

difficult for the goalie and that's something we need to get back to doing. We were doing that earlier in the year, now we’re complicating the power-play.” Cam Parr took the loss, stopping 20 of 25 shots. Aaron Young was the winner, turning away 31. Saturday in Port Hope it was a similar story as Austin Boulard scored in the opening three minutes to give Napanee an early

advantage. The Panthers then rattled off five unanswered goals for the 5-1 victory. Tomo Mikuljan took the loss, stopping 29 pucks while Young saved 37. Tuesday’s loss marked the first time all season Napanee had dropped backto-back contests and first time they have fallen out of first place. “It’s a wake up call,” said Hartwick. “Things came a little too easily at the start of the year and we’re really going to see the character of this team.” If the Raiders are to reclaim the top seed they’ll have to find a way to figure out the Panthers, who have beaten them in three of four meetings this season and have outscored them 17-4 in their last three, all Panther victories. Napanee is now 11-5-1 on the year with 23 points in 17 games played. The Panthers meanwhile are 123 with two games in hand. The Amherstview Jets are third at 9-5-1 with 19 points and also hold two games in hand over Napanee. The Raiders will travel to Gananoque this Sunday to take on the 6-8 Islanders and then return home Tuesday to host the struggling 212 Picton Pirates. Tuesday’s home game is a 7:30 p.m. puck drop.

Hawks shutout in KASSAA football finals Jr. Hawks bow out in quarters BY ADAM PRUDHOMME Staff Reporter

ooking to follow in the footsteps of the 2008 Super Bowl champion New York Giants, the under dog NDSS Golden Hawks senior football team had a chance to knock off the heavily favoured undefeated La Salle Black Knights in Saturday’s KASSAA AA finals, played at LCVI. There was no Cinderella ending for the Hawks however, as they were shut out 31-0 to end their season as AA finalists. The Black Knights showed why they were the class of the league all sea-

L

son early in the game, jumping out to a 15-0 lead in the first quarter. They tacked on 13 more before the half and cruised to victory, clinching their ticket to the EOSSAA championship game. Nic Nieman was six for nine in passing, totalling 80 yards. Colsen Bertrand led the ground game charge with nine carries for 14 yards. Jake Morrow completed three of four passes for 16 yards and also had 19 yards rushing. Liam Maracle had two catches for 50 yards. While they may not be on the same level as the Black Knights, the 2015 Hawks team did make school history in their own right by reaching the KASSAA finals. They finished the regular season at 2-4.

Atom Crunch blank Lynx HAWKS | Focus turns to winter schedule Beaver Sports

On Saturday the Atom Crunch played a rare home game at the Kingston KRock Centre against the Lindsay Lynx. It was a close game, but the Napanee girls won 1-0, and improved to 61-1 on the season. Stella Sutton setup Molly Dafoe for the game’s lone goal and Keyra Herrington earned her fifth shutout. n The CanWealth Veryea Sutton Peewee Crunch travelled to Whitby and Leaside for an action filled day of hockey on Sunday, with Napanee earning a split. Both games were fast paced and challenging for the girls. First facing Whitby, Lauren Sutton was able to squeeze the puck past the netminder in the first period

while earning assists were Saige Pearson and Mackenzie Duttle. The Wolves attacked back trying to tie the game up but Makenna Marlow stood tall between the posts and the girls earned a 1-0 win. Next facing undefeated Toronto-Leaside the Crunch players knew it would be a tough battle. After a scoreless first period Breanna Roy was able to find the back of the net assisted by Hailey Thompson and Leah Carscallen; Leaside soon answered back tying the game up. Marlow again was strong between the pipes but Leaside was able to find the back of the net one last time with one minute left to play. The Crunch were unable to answer back and were hit with a 2-1 loss.

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK JOSH PARKER

Josh Parker is a member of the NDSS Golden Hawks junior football team. On Thursday he caught his first touchdown of the season, which came at a critical time of the KASSAA quarter-final match. The Grade 9 player is eligible for another year of junior and could be a big part of the offense next year. If you know someone who should be our Athlete of the Week, call the Beaver’s newsroom at 354-6641. Or send us a picture and a brief write-up to 72 Dundas St. E., Napanee, K7R 1H9.

n The K&C Bobcat Services Bantam BB Stars made the trip to Bancroft to face the Jets on Saturday. They didn’t leave Bancroft disappointed. The Stars, who were missing a few skaters, eked out a 3-2 victory over the Jets in a back-and-forth affair. Josh Cudd opened the scoring for Napanee before the Jets tied things up. Keegan Makpah, taking a pass from Adam Burger and Aidan Joe, restored the onegoal lead, only to see the Jets tie it again 2-2. Mason Barker netted what would stand as the game winner, converting on a pass from Cudd. Bailey Maracle stood tall in net for the Stars, playing a strong game despite all the bodies crashing around his net. The Stars’ next league game is in Baltimore this Sunday when they take on the Ice Dogs at 6:30 p.m., followed by a rematch with the Stirling Blues Wednesday night at the SPC at 8 p.m. n This week the Calderwood Automation Atom AE Stars team beat Brighton 15-3. They than traveled to Picton where they had a hard fought game against the PEC Kings. After going down by a goal the team battled back for a 1-1 tie.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 Napanee bested the Ernestown Eagles in the AA semifinals. It was a marked improvement for the school that hadn't won at the senior level in the four years prior to this season. The AA playoff division is made up of teams with 900 or fewer students enrolled. In junior playoff action a single possession was as close as the Golden Hawks football team would get in Thursday's season ending KASSAA quarter-finals loss to the junior Black Knights. A late push wasn't enough to erase a slow start for the Hawks, who trailed 14-0 after one quarter on their way to a 35-21 loss to the home team. The Hawks never led, surrounding a touchdown just two plays after the opening kick-off. Brock Vale got the Hawks on the board, catching a long pass from Colby Webb through traffic to cut the Black Knights lead to 14-7. After the Knights pushed the lead back up to 14 an unlikely hero came through for the Hawks in Josh Parker. The rookie picked a great time to shine, catching a short pass for the first of his high school career. “I pretty much blacked

out and when I came to I was in the end zone,” Parker said of his catch, which cut the deficit to 21-14. “I didn’t realize I had the ball.” La Salle began to put the game away in the second half, building a 35-14 cushion. Cal Doyle scored a late touchdown for the Hawks but time ran out with the La Salle scoreboard showing the Knights up 35-21. Because the Hawks were down 14 points early, they elected to let Webb air out some passes and take some risks to get back in the game. Though it ultimately wasn’t enough, they did succeed in at least keeping it a close game. “They kept getting open off the play action with guys going deep,” said Webb, who had limited action at centre this year. “We weren’t tied or winning at any point and the running game wasn't being successful so we just had to keep passing the ball.” Admitting the team was a little nervous in the winor-go-home game, Webb says the team made too many mistakes in the first half. “If we had started the way we finished it would been a lot different,” added the quarterback. “There was a lot of pressure,” said Craig Luery, a

Grade 10 player in his second year. “You know when you’re down that one play can change the whole game.” Despite the first round playoff exit the 2015 campaign will go down as a successful one for the junior program. They went 3-2-1 in the regular season and played a competitive quarter-final game. “NDSS football hasn’t done well the last couple of years,” said Luery. “They did a lot better (this year).” More than half the team is eligible to return for a second year of junior and figure to be that much better with a KASSAA league experience under their belt. In cross-country NDSS’ Carter Free-Alkenbrack took part in the OFSAA Championship, held in Collingwood this weekend. He finished the six kilometer run in 24 minutes, finishing in the top half of the competition. The Hawks athletics department will now turn its attention to the KASSAA winter season as none of their other fall sports teams qualified for the playoffs. Practices and try outs are expected to get underway next week in most disciplines as they prepare for hockey, curling, boys’ basketball, girls’ volleyball, badminton and swimming.

Reap the benefits of a well-insulated home

MCC - By Scott McGillivray Many of us know that insulation plays a key role in keeping our homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer. But did you know the benefits can go well beyond achieving basic R-value requirements? Quality insulation can provide a number of added benefits that contributes to the comfort, safety and efficiency of a home, including: Sound absorbency — Life is loud, but the right choice of insulation can help reduce noise transfer throughout your home. Insulating between floors and interior walls can help create a peaceful sanctuary in areas of your home, even when life is chaotic. A safe indoor environment — Good indoor air quality goes a long way toward ensuring personal comfort. Choosing insulation that is water repellant and resistant to mold, mildew, fungi, bacterial growth and rot can help to prevent common issues behind your walls that may pose serious health and safety concerns and lead to costly repairs. Look to products that will not off-gas or emit harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds). Savings — A properly insulated building will be more energy efficient, a benefit that will continue to provide return on investment long after the insulation install is complete. The result is reduced heating and cooling costs, less stress on your furnace and air conditioner (potentially leading to a longer equipment lifespan) and, at the end of day, more money in your pocket. Fire-resistance — Certain insulations, particularly stone wool insulation products such as Roxul Comfortbatt and Safe ‘n’ Sound, can help buy valuable minutes in the event of a fire, withstanding temperatures of up to 1,177˚C. Non-combustible, this insulation exceeds the limits of most other insulating materials, and it won’t produce smoke or encourage the spread of flames. Performance — It’s important to remember that not all insulations are created equal. Some insulations can sag or contract over time, leaving gaps that can let outdoor air in and conditioned air out. Choosing insulation that is dimensionally stable, durable and that offers long-term thermal performance will ensure your home can stand up in even the most challenging conditions. Stone wool products are proven to perform in even the most extreme conditions, making them ideal for use in the United States. Ultimately, you can purchase insulation as many do, based on basic R-values. But when it comes to quality, comfort, safety and efficiency, Scott McGillivray is an award-winning TV host, a fullis basic really the best choice?
