Towns issued organ donation challenge
SU N DAY PEO PLE
5 York municipalities commit to contest BY TERESA LATCHFORD
You can help your municipality gain bragging rights when it comes to organ donation. The York Region Gift of Life Association has issued an organ donor challenge that pits the region’s municipalities against each other in a race to boost their communities’ organ donation registration numbers. Newmarket, East Gwillimbury, King Township, Georgina and Aurora have already accepted the challenge and are eager to take on their neighbours. The councils of York’s other municipalities have yet to receive the presentation. Bruce Cuthbert, an organ recipient and association advocate, presented the challenge to Newmarket and Aurora councils. “Our goal is to raise awareness and encourage people across York Region to become donors,” he said. He explained Canada has one of the lowest rates of registered donors in the developing world, Ontario lags behind other provSee 1, page 8.

Cardinal Golf Club owner Dalt Hicks will be roasted at gala in his honour Thursday.
Hicks recognized for community contributions BY TERESA LATCHFORD
Dalt Hicks has never sought recognition for lending a hand. Nonetheless, the Cardinal Golf Club owner will be honoured by friends, family and others at a gala in recognition of his kindness to others and devotion to the community. Mr. Hicks, an organizer of people, has touched the lives of many and deserves to be celebrated, said Bob Kilgour, a friend and Cardinal’s managing director. “He has done so much for others in his life-

The gala is Thursday at LeParc Conference and Banquet Centre in Thornhill. Guests will be treated to cocktails at 6 p.m., dinner at 7 p.m. and an entertaining roast of Mr. Hicks. Mr. Hicks was born and raised in York Region.

He lived in Richmond Hill until 1993, when he decided to retire from his gravel business, Gormley Aggregates, and move into the golf industry. He now lives in King Township. He was 64 when he put the spade in the ground on Cardinal, something that speaks to his determination. “The community means a lot to Dalt and people in it mean even more,” Mr. Kilgour said.

Longtime friends Shirley Dubkowski and Kathi Wright take computer classes together at the Aurora Seniors Centre. Thousands of Canadians will mark National Seniors Day Monday.
Celebrations planned to honour seniors day BY SIMON MARTIN
While many people head off to work or school tomorrow, a certain segment of the population has earned the day off. Jean Berger worked as a law secretary for more than 20 years and retired in 1995. Just don’t ask her age. “As my sister-in-law says, ‘you never ask a lady her age’,” she said. Tomorrow is National Seniors Day, a fact Ms Berger didn’t know. She’s too busy living life to its fullest. “The best part is being able to go where you want, when you want,” she said of being a senior citizen. One place she wants to go is the Newmarket Seniors’ Meeting Place.
Ms Berger has volunteered there since 1995, working at reception and bartending. Cribbage, carpet bowling and darts have her showing up to the centre several times a week. “I really enjoy the people and the activities,” she said. “A lot of us play for fun. Some like to play to win.” When she retired in 1995, Ms Berger found herself bored. “After a month, I looked out the window one day and said ‘This is not the rest of my life’. So I joined here,” she said. The seniors centres in Newmarket and Aurora are hubs of activity, with workshops such as yoga, tai chi and computer activities, so seniors can always find something to do and people with

whom to participate. “It’s a great idea. There’s usually someone here to chat with and there is a good group of volunteers,” Ms Berger said. Shirley Dubkowski and Kathi Wright were dental hygienists before they retired. Now, they visit the Aurora Seniors Centre to take computer classes and peruse the library. They had no idea tomorrow is
National Seniors Day. “Who wants to sit around the house? I want to stay active and involved,” Ms Wright said. “It’s great being a senior.” She moved to Aurora after she retired to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city. “It just made my life easier,” she said. The seniors centre is a great place to meet people, Ms Dubkowski said. “There’s so much to learn and we have the freedom to do it,” she said. The average member age for the centre is 74, with an active membership of around 1,300 seniors. There is a plethora of activities offered. “You could be busy all day,” Ms
Dubkowski said. Newmarket-Aurora MP Lois Brown plans to thank the seniors with a cake celebration. “Seniors play an important role in Newmarket-Aurora and across Canada,” Ms Brown said. “They have shaped our country, raised a generation and fought for our rights and freedoms. Today, they continue to share their knowledge, time and expertise and are vibrant, powerful and influential mentors and leaders.” The federal government established National Seniors Day in 2010 to provide an occasion for all Canadians to celebrate and appreciate seniors. It coincides with the United Nations International Day of Older Persons.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
We shouldn’t be gambling with our planet
Aurora Food Pantry supporters make difference
Re: Stakes remain high in global warming game, letter to the editor by Gordon Barnes, Sept. 23. In Mr. Barnes’ letter defending the global climate crusade, he asks if anyone cares to raise their bet. I’ll raise with one overpopulated planet that makes debating temperature all smoke and mirrors to the true issues facing mankind. Whether at a poker table or hiding under the covers, Mr Barnes doesn’t try to understand how a storm is born. Watch what happens in nature when one species’ population grows unchecked — starvation and disease, to name a few results. It is clear nature has its own way to reset the thermostat. What’s not clear is if mankind is smart enough to realize population levels are at the eye of the storm.
On behalf of the Aurora Food Pantry, we would like to thank the community for all the support over the summer. A special thanks goes out to all who donated at the concerts in the park and movie nights and to those who held special events or parties and collected food. It was a great help in keeping the shelves stocked. Once again, we are having a Thanksgiving food drive and you can drop off food at any grocery store or fire stations in Aurora. All donations are greatly appreciated and every item given is a help to those in need.

Get your kids away from screen, into green
ushing our kids out the door may be the best way to save the planet. In a survey conducted for the David Suzuki Foundation, 70 per cent of Canadian youth said they spend an hour or less a day in the open air. And when they are out, it’s usually to go from one place to another. In other words, it’s just a consequence of trying to be somewhere else. Nearly half the young people surveyed said they don’t have enough time to join programs that would involve them in outdoor activities. School, work and other responsibilities make it difficult to do things such as kick around a soccer ball or go for a walk with friends in the nearby woods. For someone of my generation, this is almost unfathomable. When I was a kid, being outside was the norm. Rain or shine, our parents would tell us to get out of the house. All those hours exploring the great outdoors made me more resilient and confident. As a teenager in London, Ontario, my sanctuary was a swamp. I’d return home at the end of a day, often soaking wet and covered in mud, with my collection of insects, salamander eggs and turtles. That piqued my interest in science.
David Suzuki Making tree forts and lying in fields watching the clouds stimulated my imagination and creativity. Being outside made me a happy, healthy kid and made me feel connected to the world around me. As a father, I also encouraged my kids to enjoy time outdoors and one of my favourite activities now is exploring nature with my grandchildren. In just a few generations, life has changed dramatically for children. Now, they can’t seem to find the time to play outdoors and sit in front of screens for long periods of time. The gap between the time kids stay inside with electronic devices and the time they spend outside is widening. Young people are engaged with
entertainment media for an average of 7-1/2 hours a day. Over seven days, that’s longer than the average work week, A United States survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation found. We can’t blame children for occupying themselves with Facebook rather than playing in the mud. Our society doesn’t put a priority on connecting with nature. In fact, too often, we tell them it’s dirty and dangerous. As parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts, we need to start getting out into nature with the young people in our lives. Families play a key role in getting children outside. The David Suzuki Foundation survey found youths were 20 per cent more likely to take part in outdoor programming or explore nature on their own if they spent time outside from an early age. Getting outside with families was the best way to connect with nature, younger teenagers reported. Older youth were more likely to explore nature spontaneously, on their own or with friends — likely because parents relax restrictions and allow them to do more of what they want. And what they want is fun and adventure, at least when it comes to being outside. More than half the youth
said they enjoy spending unstructured time in nature. They want to be outside in their neighbourhoods with their friends, catching bugs, watching birds or riding bikes. This is great news. What we need to do is encourage them and, sometimes, just get out of their way. We need to make sure our neighbourhoods have greenspaces where people can explore their connections with nature. We need to ask teachers and school board representatives to take students outside regularly to incorporate the natural world into everything they learn. And we need to stop making the outdoors scary for children. If we don’t, we’ll never raise the next generation of environmental stewards to help protect and celebrate the wonders of nature. After all, people are more likely to look after something they have come to know and cherish. Parents need to remember the fun times they had outside as children. They need to trust their children and kick them out the door like my mom did. Our survival may depend on it. Written with contributions from David Suzuki Foundation communications specialist Leanne Clare.

Wastewater from provincially-approved growth to 2031 in Aurora and the remainder of Newmarket would be conveyed to the existing York Durham Sewage System (YDSS) for treatment and discharge to Lake Ontario. This growth would require an additional wastewater sewage pipe.

As a result of extensive consultation, York Region has identified a recommended site for the proposed Water Reclamation Centre on 2nd Concession one kilometre north of Queensville Sideroad in East Gwillimbury along with trunk sewer pipes to transport sewage to the Water Reclamation Centre for treatment and a pipe to carry treated water to the outfall. This is to accommodate wastewater from provincially-approved growth in East Gwillimbury and a portion of Newmarket (see map).

Hicks helps hospitals
1 organ donor can save 8 lives From page 1.
inces and York Region has the lowest rate in Ontario. It only takes one donor to save up to eight lives and enhance the lives of 75 others, he added. About 1,500 people are waiting for organ donations in the province. More registered donors could relieve pressure on the health care system by eliminating costs such as the $75,000 per year it takes to keep a kidney patient on dialysis. “We are asking the mayor and councillors to work as champions in their municipalities to increase donor numbers,” he said, hinting at the pride a municipality could feel if it beat the others. There are several reasons why the region’s registration rates are low, with the first being awareness, he said. Many people are not aware of the need unless it is a family member in trouble, he added.
From page 1.

New tools make the registration process less laborious and the old signed donor cards are no longer valid. Misconceptions are common, he said. Despite what some people think, all major religions support an individual’s choice and everyone has the potential to donate, regardless of age or health, he said. Only the back of your health card indicates if you are a registered donor, Mr. Cuthbert said, adding donations don’t impact funeral arrangements and you can withdraw consent at any time. The challenge will run Nov. 1 to Jan. 31 and the Trillium Gift of Life Network will track the progress on a monthly basis.

Mr. Hicks served on the former York Central Hospital board of directors for 15 years and has a department there named in his honour. He also frequently raises money for Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket. Mr. Hicks has sponsored countless charitable events over the years, including tribute dinners for several well known people in the community, Mr. Kilgour said. “He is always happy to do things for others, always willing to lend a hand,” he said. “I couldn’t think of a more deserving man.” Mr. Hicks is looking forward to the night, saying he never could turn down a chance to rub shoulders with good people. “I’m really looking forward to seeing old friends,” he said. However, the whole thing is a little overwhelming, he said. He contributes to the community wherever he sees a need he has the means to fill, he said. He supports the hospitals because health care is something the entire community uses at one time or another, he said, adding it’s his way of helping people improve quality of life.

The province’s announcement this week that it is relocating the controversial Oakville peaker power plant at a cost of $40 million brought back unpleasant memories for King Township residents. “They knew they were sold out and this just annoyed them even more,” King Mayor Steve Pellegrini said of residents. “We all knew this. It isn’t anything new.” Energy Minister Chris Bentley announced an agreement between the Ontario Power Authority and TransCanada Energy to relocate the proposed 900-megawatt natural gas plant, originally planned for Oakville, to Ontario Power Generation’s Lennox generating station in Napanee. The decision was made “after hearing overwhelming concerns from local residents and local elected officials. We heard concerns from families and we responded”, a media release stated. Asked why the peaker plant went ahead in King despite a similar public outcry, Mr. Bentley said there wasn’t another choice. “We ran out of options,” he said. “York Region is growing very quickly and needs power.” The region didn’t support the initial proposal to bring in power by transmission lines,
he added. “There were a lot of concerns about that,” Mr. Bentley said. “There was not another choice. We have to keep the lights on.” The ministry was able to scrap the proposed power plant for Oakville because that town has a transmission solution, he added. Cancelling the Oakville plant may have helped the Liberal incumbent keep his seat in the last election, opposition MPPs argue, adding the Liberal relocation of a Mississauga plant already under construction helped the Grits hang on to four seats, they said. While people in Markham were upset about the potential of more power lines above them, the lines and peaker plant options weren’t presented by the province as a package, Mr. Pellegrini said. It would be naïve to think the location of the King plant in a Progressive Conservative riding wasn’t a factor in the decision, he said. “King is a very small municipality,” he said, adding the Liberals didn’t want to upset a larger number of people in Oakville. King residents still feel bitter provincial promises regarding tangible community improvements and benefits from the peaker plant in King never came to fruition, Mr. Pellegrini said. — with files from Sean Pearce, Chris Traber and Torstar news service

PUBLIC SAFETY: Jaywalkers will be ticketed, police warn
BY SIMON MARTIN
You need to slow down when driving near schools or you could find yourself paying a hefty fine. York Region recently implemented 57 new community safety zones to make roads a safer place. Fines for traffic violations are increased within the zones, which are designed to improve pedestrian safety in places where youths frequently walk. The region and York Regional Police launched a pedestrian safety campaign Wednesday at St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic High School in Aurora. A little safety talk might help the students who sprint across Wellington Street for a hotdog at lunch, Grade 10 student Haleigh Meech said. “It’s pretty crazy at lunch. There are lots of students everywhere,” she said. “I don’t think students have the patience to walk down to the light and wait.” She and other students were on the road with signs making people aware of the campaign. “Our new community safety zone is a proactive approach to improving vehicular and pedestrian safety at our school,” St. Maximil-
ian principal Dominic Scuglia said. “Motorists and pedestrians have a shared responsibility to ensure their own safety as well as the safety of others.” The campaign is just one measure the region is using to reduce traffic speed. “We are doing everything we can to slow people down,” York Region traffic management director Steven Kemp said. Collision frequency goes down when vehicles move slower, he said. The region introduced lower speed limits on several major arteries to improve safety. The key is to slow drivers down, York Regional Police Const. Andy Pattenden said, adding police are trying to get students to cross at the light. “They’re running across the road to get Greek food,” he said. “We do give out jaywalking tickets.” A ticket would set you back $40. York Regional Police has an information display inside the school and is providing students with tips on pedestrian safety. There was an on-duty officer in front of the school promoting road safety for the campaign launch. Community safety zone bylaws are enforceable year-round, regardless of if school is in session.

A longtime resident of Aurora, with a connection to the Richmond Hill Liberal and Aurora Banner newspapers, has died. Norman John Stunden died Sept. 23 at a long-term care centre in Bradford. He was 83. His funeral service was Thursday at Aurora United Church, followed by interment at Aurora Cemetery. His is survived by wife Shirley Marie (nee Holman), children Terry Smith (Bob) and Trudy Stunden plus grandchildren Jennifer, Ryan, Erin, Jason (Stefanie) and Jamie and great-grandchild Jackson. Mr. Stunden was a newspaper compositor for The Banner and The Liberal for decades, pasting the news stories and advertisements together on pages before they went to press. He worked in the days of lead type and typewriters and progressed to word processors and, later, computers, rising through the ranks to becoming a department supervisor. Despite the stress of deadlines, he was calm, capable and kind, words many coworkers used to describe him upon his retirement in February 1992. He was known and admired in the sports arena. He was a left-handed fastball player with the Buttonville Sluggers and an outstanding goaltender with the Markham Millionaires hockey team before becoming goalie with the Ontario champion Stouffville Clippers.

It’s early, but Raiders have hand on pigskin BY JOHN CUDMORE
It has been a long time since the Newmarket Raiders could claim to be anywhere in the vicinity of a game for first place in York Region Athletic Association senior football. However, after posting a 14-1 victory over the St. Joan of Arc Thunder Thursday afternoon in Maple, the Raiders find themselves smack in the middle of the early season pile heading into a homefield showdown against the crosstown rival Huron Heights Warriors Friday. The Raiders received second-half touchdowns from tailback Tevaun Kokko and wide receiver Aaron Zufelt on a pass from quarterback Dylan Brunning to make it two straight victories to kick off the season and share top spot in the seven-team league with the Warriors and King City Lions. “Our offence was sputtering in the first half,” head coach Andrew Edge said. “We were running the ball well, just not clicking.” Newmarket may not be in the stratosphere of the Warriors or defending champion King City Lions yet, but Edge has the program headed in the right direction, judging by early returns. Certainly tough tests await, but for now, he is enthused by what he’s seen. “It’s the first year I can say we’re playing extremely well and I’m happy with the way the boys are playing,” said Edge, now in his third season with the team, second as head coach. His side won’t roll over against Huron Heights in the 2012 version of the Gorman Bowl dominated in the last decade by the Warriors. In fact, he expects the Raiders to play
with (ahem) an edge. “I think Huron is in for a big wakeup call and a very tough game,” the coach said. “I think they are coming in here thinking they will roll over us.” Meanwhile, the home-field Warriors pummeled error-prone Bill Crothers Colts 43-0 for their second straight victory. Warriors quarterback Kaleb Scott led the assault on the Colts with touchdown passes of nine and 10 yards to Robbie Beesor and scored two more himself, including one on a 51-yard run, as Huron Heights pitched its second consecutive shutout win. Kyle Lasota and Cody Murrell also rushed for touchdowns to round out the Huron Heights offence. “We’re just looking at it week-by-week right now,” said Scott, who was lifted after three quarters. “We’re very happy with where we are.” In Markham, the Lions pasted the winless Cardinals 32-0, as Marcus Arkarakas rushed for two touchdowns and quarterback Josh Baird connected with Luca Celebre for another. Place-kicker Julian Gutierrez booted three field goals. King City faces Markham in its Week 3 match Friday. ••••• Taking notes ... Nik Bauer scored all three goals and goalkeeper Donangelo Volpe recorded a shutout as the Sacred Heart Crusaders blanked the Brother Ande Cardinals 3-0 in the senior boys soccer opener for both schools Thursday ... The Newmarket Raiders swept both ends of a varsity girls field hockey doubleheader by thumping the Denison Huskies 5-0 and the Mulock Ravens 4-0 to open the season Thursday at Sheppard’s Bush. The HuskiesRavens game ended in a scoreless draw.

It was a good day for the Newmarket Raiders kiddie corps at the Bill Crothers Colts Classic Cross Country meet Thursday at Milne Park in Markham. Kate Stewart and Rhys Toogood won medals in the midget category of the meet, the first leg of the high school cross-country season. Stewart finished second in the girls midget division in a time of 10:17.34, behind only Havergal Colleg’s Caroline Lampard (10:10.26) in the 2,900-metre race. In the boys 5,000-metre race, Toogood claimed third place, while Keswick Cougars’ Thomas Gallagher finished fifth. At the senior level, Keaton Smee of Huron Heights placed fifth (7,000 metres) while Aurora Eagles’ Meghan Roethenbroker was fifth in the 5,000-metre race for girls. The meet attracted 1,423 athletes from 66 schools.
Kolbe girls claim golf title Sonia Nagindas shot a three-over par 61 to share the lead and lead the St. Maximilian Kolbe Mustangs to the top of the team standings at a YRAA girls qualifying tournament Tuesday at Kettle Creek Golf Club in Kettleby. Nagindas tied with St. Augustine Titans’ Stephanie Chu at 61 in the 18-hole event. She teammed with Alanna Damp, Jordan Holmes and Lianna Collins to win the team title with an aggregate 325 total. The next five positions were claimed by students from Bill Crothers Colts, which was not eligible for the team competition. The girls championship is slated for Tuesday at Cardinal Golf Club. The boys championship is Monday at Cardinal’s RedCrest course.
Aurora Town outlasts Lightning in Gray Cup finale Aurora Town upset Newmarket Lightning 2-1 in a shootout Sunday in the York Region Soccer League’s Albert Gray Cup final. Aurora, which competes in the York Region Soccer League’s second division, outscored its Division 1 rival 8-7 in the shootout to claim the victory. The season-long tournament features teams from all three divisions in the men’s over-35 category in a single-loss elimination format. The teams were tied 1-1 after 90 minutes, as Aurora’s Greg Pelham and Kirk Chong of the Lightning exchanged first-half goals. — John Cudmore
