20 groups benefit from event that raised $520K in 2011 BY AMANDA PERSICO

apersico@yrmg.com

Out in the country past the city limit sign, there’s a honky tonk near the country line. Heel, toe, dosey doe. Come on, it’s time to boot scootin’ boogie. Yes, the Wild Wild West Hoedown is returning Sept. 15 and rolled in with all the hay, boots and cowboy hats are funds doled out in support of local charities and organizations. In true Magna Hoedown fashion, the event focuses on community, with 20 local groups claiming the big prize. This year, it is all about building community. “We are happy and proud to be part of this community,” Magna International CEO Don Walker said. “Being supportive of the community is the Stronach family legacy.” The 24th annual event will help provide tutoring services, See HOEDOWN, page 8.

United Way, co-op celebrate partnership BY CHRIST TRABER

ctraber@yrmg.com

The essence of collaboration was showcased Thursday when United Way York Region joined residents of the Charles Darrow Housing Cooperative in Aurora to celebrate the Community Development in Action project. The project, which received $40,000 through United Way’s Strength Investments initiative, engages residents at the 107-unit townhouse development to build an understanding of the neighbourhood challenges and mobilize ideas and resources to solve local issues. To date, residents have come together to establish support groups for mothers, create a community garden

OUR MOST POPULAR

and engage youth in leadership programs. “At United Way, we know our formal programs help,” chief executive officer Daniele Zanotti said. “We also know that people like you care and people make change happen.” The housing co-operative welcomes people from a variety of social, cultural and economic backgrounds into an environment that fosters respect, participation and, above all, co-operation.

The evening featured family team-building exercises. The co-op’s children and parents teamed up to participate in races and obstacle courses to put teamwork and strategy to the test. Challenges included mock survival scenarios and having to navigate across a dangerous impasse using limited supplies and strict guidelines. United Way York Region has a 35-year history of funding formal programs and agencies, Mr. Zanotti told the large audience. “We also have a history of going out into the community to hear what residents have to say,” See UNITED WAY, page 8.

POLICE: 1-year deal worth $568K

York company signs extension to service Air2 BY JOE FANTAUZZI

jfantauzzi@yrmg.com

A Vaughan company has been granted a contract extension to provide pilots, maintenance and service for the York Regional Police helicopter. The one-year contract extension, worth $568,908 excluding taxes was awarded to National Helicopters Incorporated last week by the region’s police services board.

C

MANDATORY SERVICE The board also approved the company do or co-ordinate $709,000 worth of service work deemed mandatory by the chopper’s manufacturer. National Helicopters, which won a two-year pilot and maintenance contract in 2010, provides two full-time pilots who work 12-hour shifts, four days a week and an alternate pilot when one is required, a report by Chief Eric Jolliffe presented to the police board states. The company also employs a full-time engineer who services

the chopper daily. The chief’s report states National Helicopters has satisfactorily met the terms of the 2010 contract.

MAJOR RETROFIT The chopper was grounded between November 2011 and Feb. 24 for a major retrofit. For the first time since the force purchased the chopper, a Eurocopter EC120, about a decade ago, it was totally disassembled and checked for stress wear and mechanical problems, Deputy Chief Bruce Herridge said. The original helicopter was a donated Enstrom 480 equipped with a searchlight and a thermal imaging camera, which was the source of noise complaints to police. York police purchased a much quieter Eurocopter EC120B, known as Air2, in 2002. The police helicopter flew 768.2 hours and responded to 1,078 calls last year.

Large crowd pays respect at teen’s funeral BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

Tears that were held back throughout the hour-long funeral mass for Sara Girard this morning, flowed freely when the 17-yearold’s body was escorted out of St. Mark’s Roman Catholic Church to a soloist singing Sarah McLaughlin’s In The Arms of an Angel. Her parents, Joanne and Wayne, clung to each other as they followed their daughter’s casket, which was draped in a white and gold cloth, out of the church as hundreds of other mourners openly wept. “It’s hard to put words into such a loss, tragedy,” said Councillor Richard Bartley, who attended Sara’s funeral on behalf of the town. “We still have a great, great community. Unfortunately, it takes tragedies to reassure us,” he said of those who attended the funeral mass. Those who couldn’t fit into the auditorium watch on closed-circuit TV from the church basement. Immediately following the service, Mr. Bartley, who has three daughters, called one of them to tell her he loved her. “As a parent, of course this is your worst nightmare. You think about it every day,” he said. “Appreciate what you have because in a blink of an eye, your life changes.”

Sara Girard, 17, was killed Monday afternoon when the van in which she was a passenger rolled over on Hwy. 11 north of Huntsville. Sara, 17, died Monday afternoon when the van she was riding in was involved in a single-vehicle rollover on Hwy. 11 north of Huntsville. Sara, along with fellow Stouffville resident Meghan Timewell, 18, and Allison Neville, 17, of Markham, were on their way home from a post-graduation weekend at a family friend’s cottage. Sara died at the scene, while Meghan and Ms Timewell remain in hospital. “She touched a lot of hearts, especially mine. I loved her like a sister,” said Jody Martin, Sara’s

cousin, through tears as Sara’s mother held her. “It’s going to be hard on everyone,” she said noting Sara loved children, animals and nature. Ms Martin was the only member of Sara’s family to speak during the service. For the past two summers, Sara volunteered at local day camps for autistic children, according to Father Michael Hughes, who conducted the service. “She was a quiet, laid back girl by nature who was growing in confidence,” he said.

SOCIAL SERVICES: 900,000 Canadians rely on assistance every month

BY AMANDA PERSICO

BY THE NUMBERS

And there’s no indication the trend will change in the near future, York Region Food Network executive director Joan Stonehocker said. And there’s no indication the trend will change in the near future, York Region Food Network executive director Joan Stonehocker said. “It is the same story,” she said. “Nothing dramatic has changed. The numbers keep going up. Nothing is changing and that is the problem.” This year’s report focused on the improvements to healthy eating. Food banks are working to get healthy food options to its users. The York Region Food Network has several programs to foster healthy eating, including community gardens to grow fresh vegetables, food box programs, community kitchens and outreach programs. “But healthy food needs a distribution system,” she said. “There is a system already in place at the grocery store, but people can’t afford it.” There is also an increase in users on special diets, who can’t be accommodated, Ms Stonehocker added. The report pointed out the need for long-term solutions, such as

52,000 – York Region residents assisted by York Region Food Network in 2010. That is a 20-per-cent increase compared to 2008; 41 per cent – adults who used a local food bank who went hungry at least once per week; 17 per cent – children whose family used a local food bank who went hungry at least once per week; 46 per cent – households accessing food banks that had at least one person employed; 27 per cent – food bank users who said employment was their main source of income; 76 per cent – food bank users’ income spent on rent or mortgage, including utilities.

affordable housing, because having a job isn’t an automatic ticket out of poverty and hunger. “Of course food bank use is on the rise,” she said. “Living on a disability (pension) from the government is not enough. We cannot accept that as the norm. Food banks are a Band-Aid solution. It is scary to think politicians hosting a food drive will help solve the problem.” Having a strong economy and affordable housing goes hand in hand. “We have some of the cheapest food in the world,” Ms Stonehocker said. “But we also have some of the most expensive housing.” While requests to host food drives increase, bringing in more food won’t solve the long-term problem, Ms Stonehocker said. “People have become complacent,” she said. “There is a food drive every spring and fall and during the holidays. We need to do better.” For more information or to download the full report, visit foodbankscanada.ca

York Region Food Network executive director Joan Stonehocker says the problem is nothing changes, yet the number of people relying on food banks continues to rise. According to a Food Banks Canada 2012 report, food bank use is about 26 per cent higher than before the 2008 recession.

TH

It comes as no surprise to social service agencies, food bank use across the nation remains high with close to 900,000 Canadians turning to them each month for assistance. According to Food Banks Canada’s annual 2012 report, food bank use remains about 26 per cent higher than before the recession started in 2008. And that trend is reflected in York Region, with food bank uses slightly higher in 2011 compared to 2010. Food bank use in the region has increased by more than 20 per cent since 2008.

Northern towns not ready to become cities BY L.H. TIFFANY HSIEH

thsieh@yrmg.com

With much fanfare, Markham became York Region’s second city last weekend. Mayor Frank Scarpitti, in his Canada Day celebration speech, said a great city has a strong economy, sound fiscal management, diversity, environmental initiatives and a dynamic downtown, among other things. That being said, Markham’s new status isn’t coveted by other municipalities in the region, a sampling of neighbouring mayors shows. “‘City’ has a connotation of pavement,” King Township Mayor Steve Pellegrini said. “I can guarantee you not one person (in King) wants city status.” In part, the township’s population isn’t expected to exceed 35,000 by 2031 from its current 20,000

people, Mr. Pellegrini said, adding 99 per cent of the municipality is protected under the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation and Greenbelt acts. “We are not even doubling,” he said. “So we will remain a town, we’ll remain a community of communities. Plus, what would we call ourselves? King City? We already have a village called King City.” While it was appropriate for Markham to become a city, Mr. Pellegrini said it’s “definitely not” appropriate for King. “We are not transit supported,” he explained. “A chunk of us live on septic and wells and we are quite happy with it. That’s very rural and people fight to keep their well water.” Whitchurch-Stouffville Mayor Wayne Emmerson echoed similar sentiments in that his town can only grow to about 60,000 people

by 2031. “We will not be changing our status,” Mr. Emmerson said. “We will always be the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville — Country Close to the City.” In Aurora, Mayor Geoffrey Dawe said there is no change on the horizon, adding Aurora recently completed a strategic plan and one of the common themes from focus groups was the small-town feel. “So, it’s Town of Aurora for the foreseeable future,” Mr. Dawe said. “The perception is town is more friendly, it’s more folksy and homey.” Newmarket Mayor Tony Van Bynen cited a population cap of 98,000 by 2031 by the province’s Places to Grow Act, but added city status isn’t a matter of population. “The word ‘city’ infers a business or commercial tone, while ‘town’ has a community and neighbour-

hood sense,” he said. “I don’t want to change that tone of our community.” Mr. Van Bynen also expressed uncertainty about the potential business opportunities that come with city status. “I understand the benefits, but I think we can compete just as much in the international market (as a city),” he said. East Gwillimbury Mayor Virginia Hackson agrees, pointing out business and employment opportunities along the Hwy. 404 corridor and across the greenspace in her town. “We have a unique opportunity. We’ll have a new urban feel in a rural, green community,” she said. But while there is now no community support for East Gwillimbury to become a city, Ms Hackson said she suspects there will be discussions about it in the future as the town is expected to grow to the size of Aurora in 10 years and reach about 100,000 people in 20 years. “We’ll quadruple in size,” she said. While some might argue Richmond Hill is of a city size, Mayor Dave Barrow said he hopes the town doesn’t change to a city. “Being a town is more community sounding,” he said. “With Markham now a city, we can call ourselves the largest town in Ontario by population.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Too many MPs put party ahead of people Re: MPs should represent voters, not party heavyweights, letter to the editor by D. Richardson, July 1. Why would anyone want to vote for a person who will nod, jeer, laugh, hoot or holler on cue because it is demanded of them to satisfy the party? At election time, these people will promise you the world and to work hard to look after your interests, but once elected, you are forgotten for the next four years. They toe the party line even if it is opposite to their constituents’ wishes. These politicians focus on their own self interest, the party’s interest and, last and least, their constituents’ interests. The prime example of this was former prime minister Brian Mulroney’s GST and NAFTA agreements. In both cases, most people opposed them. In fact, polls at the time had opposition to the GST in the high 90-per-cent range, yet every Conserva-

tive MP voted in favour of it, ignoring the wishes of the electorate. The suggestion candidates should have to sign a pledge to vote the way the majority of constituents want is an excellent idea, but there has to be consequences — such as resigning — if the pledge is broken. A lot of people may say it isn’t practical to have MPs resigning and forcing byelections. But I don’t think it would come to that. Once three or four had to resign, the rest would soon get the message. As for the party using MPs as pawns, a lot are willing pawns. There is an old saying, “People get the government they deserve.” The way this government is behaving, it doesn’t say much for what we deserve.

Dumping waste into ground shaky solution

W

hat can we do with wastes from our industrial pursuits — from fossil fuel extraction, agriculture, chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing? We’ve been spewing lots of it into the air, but that isn’t a good plan. Carbon dioxide, ozone, mercury and other emissions harm human health and contribute to global warming and holes in the ozone layer. We’ve dumped it into the oceans, but that compromises marine life on which billions of people rely for food. We could bury it: Out of sight, out of mind. But we’re learning hiding it below our feet isn’t the best solution, either. Several scientific reports have called into question everything from injection wells to carbon capture and storage. The latter is a key component of the federal and Alberta governments’ climate change strategies and budgets. Little is known about leaks from the 680,000 waste and injection sites in the United States, but structural failures are common, according to a recent study. That’s not surprising when you consider close to 130 trillion litres of toxic liquids have been pumped under-

David Suzuki ground there over the past several decades. “The idea that injection is safe rests on science that has not kept pace with reality and on oversight that doesn’t always work,” ProPublica, an investigative journalism website, reports Wells often leak, contaminating groundwater and sending waste and toxic chemicals to the surface, researchers say. From late 2007 to late 2010, one well integrity violation was issued for every six deep injection wells examined — more than 17,000 violations nationally, according to ProPublica. More than 7,000 wells showed signs their walls were leaking. Records also show wells are frequently operated

in violation of safety regulations and under conditions that greatly increase the risk of fluid leakage and the threat of water contamination. Carbon capture and storage is another plan to hide our industrial wastes underground — in this case the carbon dioxide from operations such as coal-fired power plants and tar sands that would otherwise be sent into the atmosphere, contributing to global warming. The federal and Alberta governments have pinned much of their climate change mitigation hopes on the strategy, ponying up close to $3 billion to test the technology. One early venture ended in failure when the main company behind it pulled out. The Alberta and federal governments had committed close to $800 million for the $1.4-billion joint project between TransAlta, Capital Power and Enbridge, which would have taken carbon from a coal-fired power plant west of Edmonton and stored it underground or injected it into wells to recover oil. Even with generous government support, TransAlta spokespeople said the market for carbon sales and price

of emissions reductions were not good enough to justify going ahead. The plan didn’t make economic sense without a federal price on carbon through a cap-and-trade system or carbon tax. The economic difficulties with carbon capture isn’t the only challenge. Storing carbon underground can trigger earthquakes, the U.S. national research council concluded. And a Greenpeace report notes the technology is energy-intensive, expensive, unlikely to get emissions down quickly enough to avoid dangerous climate change and undermines research into cleaner energy solutions. We need to consider many solutions to deal with waste, pollution and global warming, but not risky and expensive schemes that serve only to enable our continued addiction to fossil fuels. Our best bet is to reduce waste and emissions. And rather than dumping money into schemes like carbon capture and storage, we should invest in renewable energy.

Catholic teachers’ union may have reached a deal with the province, but that doesn’t mean it’s back to school as usual for all students in the fall. The two-year agreement announced Thursday was praised by Education Minister Laurel Broten and union head Kevin O’Dwyer, but few others have lined up behind a contract that calls for a two-year wage freeze, three unpaid days and loss of sick days.

‘SELLING OUT’ Union leaders in the public school system yesterday blasted their Catholic counterparts for “selling out” to the cash-strapped government by making a “secret” deal that could strip their contracts — and they are planning strike votes in the fall. And with the Catholic board trustees association expressing dismay at the deal, and CUPE and public high school unions — who represent some workers in Catholic schools — remaining staunchly opposed, there’s still a chance separate schools won’t see labour peace anytime soon, either. The Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association revealed

Thursday it reached an agreement with the province that includes a wage freeze, three unpaid “professional development days’’ (something that would also apply to principals and vice-principals) in the second year of the contract, sick days cut in half to 10 per year and loss of the ability to bank unused sick time. That deal, say the other school staff unions — Canadian Union of Public Employees Ontario, the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation, the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario and l’Association des enseignantes et des enseignants franco-ontariens — is not good enough. At a joint news conference Friday, they blasted the Dalton McGuinty government for reaching a “back-room deal” with Catholic teachers, one they say will demoralize the workforce. “Shocked, dismayed, disheartened, upset and occasionally angry” were words being used by the leaders of Ontario’s elementary and secondary public school teachers unions who said they have “tremendous concerns” about the deal hammered out for the province’s 45,000 Catholic teachers. What Ms Broten said yesterday was a roadmap for other unions is

better described as a roadblock to local bargaining, elementary union head Sam Hammond said. Ken Coran, head of the secondary teachers, said his members are demoralized, upset and don’t understand why the government is attacking them. While union leaders have assured parents there will be classes in September, high school teachers will hold strike votes at the end of August and similar votes

are planned for elementary teachers in mid-September. In an interview yesterday afternoon, Mr. Coran said his union’s executive is meeting Monday morning and a town hall-style meeting with local presidents is set for noon to ensure everyone is clear on what the Catholic deal entails. “The ball is in the government’s court. If they are truly interested in a deal, maybe they should offi-

cially invite us back to the table,” he said. The most contentious issue, he said, is the loss of banked sick leave, something he says his members do not abuse. Asked if he thought the public was on the unions’ side in hard economic times, he said., “unfortunately for the public, it’s difficult to explain a complex situation in very precise form, what it is we are so troubled with.”

healthy eating programs, accessible tables and chairs, financing for new homes, bereavement training for teachers, financial assistance for those transitioning from shelter to a new home, First Nations art programs and inclusive recreational programs for those with special needs. “This is about building community,” Newmarket Mayor Tony Van Bynen said. “This is more than just funds raised. The monetary part will help us build the community, but this is about community capital.”

For a list of the charities benefiting from the hoedown, go to yorkregion.com

for Community co-ordinator Steve Hinder said. “That’s what we’re all here for.” The big push this year is the Prospector’s Raffle, with one of the best lottery odds, he added, noting this year’s big prize is $100,000. “That’s $20 right in the charity’s pocket,” Mr. Hinder said. Each year, Magna puts in about

$500,000 to host one of the largest tent events, Mr. Walker said. The event, itself, is funded by the company. Ticket sales and raffle sales support the organizations. “This isn’t a case of leftover proceeds going to the groups,” Mr. Walker said. “All the money through ticket sales go to the charities.” Last year, the event raised more than $520,000 from ticket and raffles sales. The event’s lineup is expected to be announced in the coming months. Last year, Emerson Drive and Jason McCoy rocked the tent.

he said. “In our discussions across the region, one thing is very clear — people care and people make change. “Strength investments is a way of investing in this community of caring. It allows us to fund informal, grass-roots initiatives through people already doing onthe-ground work.” Darrow residents came to United Way with ideas to improve the quality of life, he said. This marks the second year of funding for the co-op project. “We’ve seen significant growth in the types of initiatives you are doing and look forward to future successes with Community Development in Action,” Mr. Zanotti said. “We have learned that the single most sustainable strategy to addressing social pressures is to build civic muscle and invest in people helping people.” Through strength investments, United Way is distributing $150,000 among five community projects that extend beyond the formal programs and services United Way traditionally funds. In addition to the co-op program, this year’s projects include The ReWilding Young Entrepreneurs Project, Alliance for a Better Georgina; Forging Empower Access Transformation, Enterprise Promotion and Innovation Centre; Advocates for Healthy and Diverse Communities, People First Markham Chapter and; the York Region Food Charter, York Region Food Charter Working Group.

Tipofthe Week

Inexpensive barbecues will send savings up in flames

PORTABLE BARBECUES: A MATTER OF FLEXIBILITY Delight in summer cuisine where and when you like with a portable barbecue. Smaller than conventional barbecues, the portable version is limited to the basic components. Pay particular attention to weight, the quality of the closing mechanism, and the comfort of the handle you’ll be using to carry it.You’ll save a lot of back fatigue with a light-weight model. Gas models are the runaway favourites among grilling aficionados. They are accessible and cooking can be done easily and quickly, which can be an important factor. Vigilance is required, however gas can be dangerous and must always be handled with care. If you want your barbecue cooking to have an authentic smoky taste, the charcoal barbecue reighns supreme: ideal for camping devotees and those who savour the charred flavour only a charcoal model can produce. Set up your charcoal barbecue in a location out of the wind to prevent the risk of fire. Very safe and transportable, electric barbecues are practical for holiday trips and campgrounds equipped with hydro. It’s worth noting that you can just as easily use an electric barbecue indoors as out. For more info and tips go to

Size considerations

For many homeowners, the backyard barbecue represents more than a summer accessory: It can anchor an outdoor living space, offer a convenient, efficient cooking surface all year round and make entertaining a breeze. But for even fair-weather grillers, a new high-quality barbecue makes more sense than a cheap, shortterm solution. “Mainly what you want to look for is that you’re getting a really good manufacturer,” says Anna Chafe of Dolphin Pools-Newmarket – “and that you’re getting a good barbecue for what you pay.” Besides the shortened lifespan, an inferior product’s inability to maintain a consistent temperature will generally lead to wasted money on poorly cooked meat, she adds. “You want to be able to use your barbecue just like it’s an oven,” which requires durable, heat-retaining materials like stainless steel.

Size and number of burners inevitably factor into any decision on a new barbecue. Ultimately, though, consumers need to weigh a number of factors rather than abide by any hard and fast rule on fit. Rona store manager Anne Bremer suggests customers look at where and how often they want to use their grill, and for what foods. The number of burners inside doesn’t necessarily need to correspond to the amount of food, she says, because many products employ extras like side burners and rotisseries, which cooks can use simultaneously. But “if you want to be able to cook steaks to perfection, then you probably want a greater number of burners; so that you can sear the steaks and have them all laid out and have them all ready at the same time.” On the other end of the spectrum, smaller barbecues can do “a very respectable job; you just can’t cook as much all at the same time,” says Ms Bremer. Here, with a highquality unit, the advantage of portability is realized without sacrificing performance.

Most conversations about cooking grids centre on the question, ‘Cast iron or stainless steel?’ Many people prefer cast-iron grids because of the way they sear, says Ms Chafe. But with that advantage comes added responsibility: “Cast-iron grills have to be treated just like you’d treat an iron skillet,” including once every few weeks oiling them once and then letting them first simmer in the barbecue. Meanwhile, stainless steel is easy to clean and won’t rust if left untreated, says

Ms Chafe. She recommends occasionally using high heat after cooking to burn off fat and other debris, using a brush afterward to finish the job. Ms Bremer calls grilling surface a personal choice, but an important one. Certain types of food can stick to cast-iron grills if they are not first cleaned off, while the smoothness of stainless steel tends to eliminate those worries, she says. Stainless steel also has a reputation for outlasting cast iron. Charcoal back in style Both experts have seen a major rise in the popularity of charcoal in recent years. “Charcoal is the happening thing right now,” says Ms Chafe. But for anyone with limited space or budget, Napoleon, a Canadian manufacturer, also makes charcoal inserts like a smoker tray and basket for gas barbecues. Gas is used to get the

barbecue started, but the charcoal takes it from there. Ms Chafe notes that many customers prefer to use both types of grill, relying on charcoal for slow-cooking and gas for quick sides like vegetables.

www.millercompost.com Extras Among the most popular extras today are warming racks, rotisserie features, side burners and searing elements, says Ms Bremer. Infrared searing stations allow cooks to sear their steaks on the outside first but keep it rare on the inside by using a more moderate temperature in the barbecue afterward, says Ms Chafe. And the stations work well for boiling water outside, whether for staples like corn or specialties like lobster. Back burners are also going infrared, she adds, a technology that “distributes the heat more evenly across whatever you’re cooking.”

Danielle Koren is the first to receive a grant to make Newmarket awesome. The local chapter of the Awesome Foundation, under the Newmarket Chamber of Commerce umbrella, awards grants to education, employment and community projects that make a difference for local youth.

Newmarket photographer Danielle Koren has earned $1,000 to help create a photo shoot that will empower people and help them build confidence.

FIRST WINNER Ms Koren, a photographer, was the first person to receive a $1,000grant to help her run a Help Portrait Day in town in December. “For lack of a better word, getting the grant is awesome and that’s how I feel right now,” she said. “I have two passions; photography and community. This lets me fulfil both.” The initiative is a worldwide movement Ms Koren wanted to bring to her community. A collaboration of photogrpahers, hairstylists, makeup artists and volunteers come together to offer a professional photo shoot experience for those who other-

wise wouldn’t be able to afford such a luxury. “There are many families that can’t afford family portraits or even their children’s graduation pictures,” she said. “I want to capture that memory, frame it and let them cherish it forever.” It is more about giving the photographs than taking them, Ms Koren said. Not only does the session offer a keepsake, but it also boost the individual’s self-esteem and selfworth. She has put together a team

of seven photographers, two hair salons and 10 high school students who have committed to donating their time to the event that takes place Dec. 8 at Newmarket Community Centre and Lions Hall.

EMPOWERING YOUTH Help portrait day will focus on youth, tying into the missions of organizations that focus on empowering youth to reach their potential, supporting young mothers and inspiring girls to be strong, smart and bold. For this reason, Ms Koren plans to partner with organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters York Region, Rose of Sharon and Girls Inc. to find youth who will benefit from the boost a professional photography session provides. “I’m just so excited and can’t encourage people enough to apply for the next grant,” she said. The second Awesome grant applications deadline is July 15 at newmarketchamber.ca/awesome

Crothers kids fight back against ruling BY JOHN CUDMORE

jcudmore@yrmg.com

Bill Crothers Secondary School students are showing their competitive spirit. Despite recent rulings at provincial and regional levels to restrict domination in high school sports by sports-themed schools, Crothers students plan to fight back to ensure future athletes at their school remain exposed to competitive opportunities in regional and provincial sports activities. Alarmed that sports-themed schools such as Crothers and others in the province have unfair competitive advantages, the Ontario Federation of Schools Athletic Association changed its constitution this spring concerning eligibility for students at these schools. For Crothers, the policy impacts students registering after Sept. 4. The York Region Athletic Association had no choice, but to follow suit and adopt the policy. Under the ruling, new students to the school after that date will not be permitted to compete in their declared primary sport. The main concern is sportsthemed schools are becoming too dominant on playing fields. Crothers students argue it is not a sports school, but a school to which elite and high-performance athletes are attracted by a healthy living philosophy in addition to other factors, including academics and scheduling flexibility. Students, including those entering Grade 9 this year, will remain eligible to compete in their primary sport as members of Crothers teams until they graduate. But that isn’t sitting well with students at the four-year-old Unionville school.

FILE PHOTO/MIKE BARRETT

New rules that apply to sports-oriented schools such as Unionville’s Bill Crothers Secondary School, has students crying foul. Their angst stems from the fact students at other schools are permitted to participate in their primary sports without restrictions related to their primary sport. “I feel the ruling OFSAA and YRAA are trying to impose affect the overall culture of our school,” said Mary Beth Hemphill, a graduat-

ing high-performance alpine skier who played rugby for the school. “There’s nothing better than representing your school and being part of something. The reason I had so much fun at school is because of sports, but it’s important to have the opportunity to play the sport you want to play.”

Hemphill, a resident of Uxbridge, benefits from the flexibility at Crothers, which permits her to travel extensively for skiing. “Lots of people just want to play sports, but there are lots of students here for the support. I’m hardly ever at the school, but if I could, I would like to ski for my school team.” Crothers athletics manager Derrick Stryker met with several students June 29 to explain the ruling. “I think there is some misunderstanding of the rule,” he said. “It is very confusing. I think (the students) believe Crothers is getting targeted. We’re not. I think other schools in Ontario are being affected and we all have to stand up together. “Something needs to happen. But what happened wasn’t right. (OFSAA) never contacted any of the schools involved. “The primary concern is that these kids work hard as athletes and participation in the sport they love is being taken away from them.” Riley Carter is a softball player headed for Butler University on a scholarship in the fall. Softball is not on the YRAA agenda, so she competed in volleyball and was named to the YRAA all-star team. “I think with this rule, our school could have no teams,” said Carter, pointing out Crothers students hold their own academically among schools in Ontario. “It could be right out the window for team sports. I think this will impact kids in future and school, for them, won’t be as interesting. “It will affect the way our school is. We succeed in athletics and aca-

demics because we put the effort into it.” Cam McNeil said the lack of an alternative from OFSAA is disappointing. The Newmarket resident would like to see a premier level for schools that excel in sports. “Perhaps quad-A could be turned into a section for schools with a competitive advantage and wanting better competition,” said McNeil, a member of the school’s volleyball OFSAA silver medal team and ultimate player. OFSAA has four categories, ranging from single- to quad-A based on school population. Some observers feel it would be feasible to enter Colts’ teams only in quad-A events or the formation of an open or elite category would be appropriate. “If they do create a new competitive stream, it would be possible to field a second team to play at the York Region level,” said Sean Nishimura, a double-A hockey player who lives in Aurora. “That would give more kids an opportunity to play high school sports.” He does not compete for the school in hockey, but he plays ultimate. “My main concern is for athletes who only play one sport and not necessarily at a high level. A house league hockey player could come here, but if it his only sport, he can’t play (on the school team).” YRAA athletic co-ordinator Steve Shantz points out tennis and swimming are sports that separate club-trained and school-trained athletes for competition Under YRAA rules, Crothers students can still win medals in individual sports such as track and field, but cannot proceed to the levels beyond their association.

Hawks bash Vikings Centre-fielder Ryan Fedrigo drove in six runs and first baseman Mateo Perone knocked in five as the Newmarket Hawks routed the Vaughan Vikings 21-2 in Toronto Baseball Association junior division action Thursday night at Sports Village in Vaughan. Both players had three hits, including a pair of doubles by Perone. Patrick Jones chipped in with three RBI. In claiming their fourth straight win, the Hawks improved to 13-6 in league play to sit second in the 12-team league. The Hawks return to action Thursday when the East York Bulldogs visit McKnight Field at the Newmarket Fairgrounds. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

Yustin’s late charge falls short at junior golf event Matthew Yustin of Gormley shot a final round 76 to finish second in his age category at the Canadian Junior Golf Association Eastern Canadian championships which concluded Thursday at Lakeridge Links Golf Club. Yustin started the day four strokes behind Kitchener’s Max Clift in the boys 14-and-under category but posted the best round of the day for the division with his fourover par score to finish at 230 for the 54-hole event. Brett Butler of Aurora placed sixth in the 20-player field at 251. Meanwhile, Josh Travers of Battersea, ON held on for a three-stroke victory over hard-charging Brandon McLean of Markham in the boys 15 to 19 age group. McLean carded an even-par 72 to trim five strokes off Travers’ lead and finish at 225. Jin Won Cho of Aurora fell from second to third place after shooting a final round 79. Kleinberg’s Joseph Viele finished sixth in the 26-player field at 231. In the girls division, Emily Peters of Maitland, ON shot 82 to record a one-stroke victory over Richmond Hill’s Monet Chun (84). Peters finished with a 54-hole score of 242. — John Cudmore

In Memoriam

Wes Green May 30, 1946 - July 8, 2002 Remembering a loving husband and father. We have missed him so much during these last ten years - all of the fun family times, his warm hugs, his great sense of humour, along with his constant encouragement & positive attitude. We have tried to let the grandchildren know all about "Grandpa in Heaven" - he would have been a terrific grandpa! Even though he is no longer here, his love remains in each of our hearts & always will! Barb, Jenny, Rob & Leslie, Jeff & Jenn Business Opportunities
