By David Richards

When I was at Boy Scout camp one year, in addition to the water fights and the obstacle courses, we had a Christmas in July.

There was no tree, no music and no stockings, but you could draw a name if you participated and then you would make some sort of gift, usually something ceramic or made of pottery to give to that person.

Well, in 2013, Byron has its own version of a Christmas in July.

This week, the major construction started on the Frontage Road project, which is likely to cause delays and an inconvenience for motorists.

The work may also prove to be a burden on local businesses too, as residents who don't want to brave the detours to buy groceries, get gas or have dinner, might be tempted to bypass the project and head into Rochester.

We hope they don't.

Just as during Christmastime when we urge our readers to buy local whenever possible, we are urging our readers now to do the same, despite the work in the Frontage Road area.

While the project that ends in November will be done in sections, even a month of a decrease in sales could be harmful to our businesses.

So remember, this Christmas in July or even in June or in August, continue to patronize our local businesses even if it means a detour or two or three.

The Frontage Road renovation will be a positive addition to Byron when it's all done, and we can do our part by continuing to buy local.
