An Autumn Ride on the Cataraqui Trail

October 7, 2020
Rob Plumley

While growing up in Newburgh I spent a lot of time on the Cataraqui Trail, long before it was known by such a name.

My parent's property backed onto the old rail line that cut through the village. The tracks were still there back in the 80's, but I don't recall ever seeing a train moving in either direction.
 
My brother and I and other neighbourhood kids used to play and bike up and down the old tracks all the time, jumping into ditches, getting wet and dirty in the process. Long story short, we enjoyed every minute of it.

Planning Out an Autumn Leaf Tour of L&A

September 29, 2020

Lennox & Addington County is always a great place be, especially in the fall when the leaves light up the landscape.

This weekend we have a video crew visiting L&A during the peak of the autumn's transformation. Along with brilliant views of the tree line, they will also be filming some locals as they hike, cycle, ride, paddle and drive with the colours of the season as a backdrop. 

To prepare for the visit, I had to pre-scout some areas to make sure that the leaves were looking good. Tough job, I know.

Napanee Restaurant Incorporates e-Commerce to Keep Up With Takeout Demand

Now more than ever, it is important for business owners to provide as many outlets as possible to sell their products and services. 

When COVID-19 forced non-essential businesses to shut their doors to foot traffic in March, those that already had an e-commerce function incorporated into their sales model had an advantage. They already had access to their customer base 24/7. For these businesses, the unexpected closure still stung, but not as badly as it could have otherwise.

The flag at the County Courthouse is currently flying at half mast in recognition of the passing of former Prime Minister John Turner. Former PM Turner died on Sept 19th at the age of 91.  The Canadian government also announced a half-masting of the national flags on the Peace Tower and all federal buildings and establishments in Canada to honour Turner’s memory. Flags will remain at half-mast until the day of his funeral on Oct 6th.
