Landmark lost

When the phone rings at 4 a.m. and somebody mentions "fire," you know this is going to be a long day. When fire consumed the Long Sault bar in Grenville, just across the bridge from Hawkesbury, fire fighters hosed the 100-year-old building down, oblivious to the danger posed by propane tanks. Some people got bricks as souvenirs from the landmark, which contained two businesses and lots of happy memories.

I hadn't heard about this! What a shame. Now, can you find out why there were four OPP cars stopping everyone driving through Apple Hill last Saturday, on the pretense of "Have you had anything to drink today?" Cuz that wasn't any R.I.D.E. spot check.

But I digress... very sad about the fire. I hate seeing landmarks go down like that.
