Council expenses for 2018 By Bryan Jessop

LEAMINGTON – A statement issued by municipal treasurer Laura Rauch has offered a glimpse at council’s expenses through the year of 2018. The report was submitted during a regular municipal council meeting held Tuesday, March 12 and was accepted by council members as filed. As required per Section 284 of the Municipal Act, the statement includes a breakdown of wages and municipally-related expenses as incurred per each member of council. Expenses include remuneration received as members of boards, agencies, committees or other organizations to which councilors are appointed to as members of council. In Leamington, municipal council passed a resolution made effective December 1 of last year that increased the gross honorarium of elected officials in response to the federal government’s elimination of the ‘one-third tax-free’ benefit for municipal councilors. Salary amounts paid to councilors, the mayor and deputy mayor for 2018 revealed discrepancies in comparison to previous years. Those differences arose through appointments made official during the autumn of last year following results from the October 22 municipal election. Following are the expenses incurred by members of council based on salaries, conference costs, other expenses including travel, training and per diems and compensation as members of boards and agencies: • Salaries: John Paterson – $33,266 (mayor), Hilda MacDonald – $24,820 (deputy-mayor/mayor), Bill Dunn – $19,134 (councillor), John Hammond – $19,134 (councillor), John Jacobs – $19,134 (councillor), Larry Verbeke – $19,558 (councillor/deputy-mayor), Tim Wilkinson – $19,134 (councillor), Paul Tiessen – $1,836 (councillor, following 2018 election). • Conference expenses: Paterson – $7,755, MacDonald – $275, Dunn – $5,340, Hammond – $3,569, Jacobs – $1,975, Verbeke – $2,737, Wilkinson – $0, Tiessen – $0. • Other expenses: Paterson – $3,355, MacDonald – $876, Dunn – $1,097, Hammond – $722, Jacobs – $722, Verbeke – $1,680, Wilkinson – $122, Tiessen – $0. • Total municipal expenses: Paterson – $44,376, MacDonald – $25,971, Dunn – $25,571, Hammond – $23,425, Jacobs – $21,831, Verbeke – $23,975, Wilkinson – $19,256, Tiessen – $1,836. • Boards and agencies: Paterson – $12,095, MacDonald – $4,445, Dunn – $1,719, Hammond – $3,852, Jacobs – $4,309, Verbeke – $2,231, Wilkinson – $136, Tiessen – $41. • Combined totals: Paterson – $56,471, MacDonald – $30,415, Dunn – $27,290, Hammond – $27,277, Jacobs – $26,140, Verbeke – $26,206, Wilkinson – $19,392, Tiessen – $1,877. Five non-members of council — Joan McSweeney, Paul Tiessen, Derek Friesen, Keith Klassen and Frank Ricci — were also compensated for their involvement with local boards and agencies. Combined, those expenses totaled $16,589. The grand total among council and non-council expenses equaled $231,656.

Busy schedule at Wheatley Library By Bryan Jessop

WHEATLEY – The Chatham-Kent Public Library is encouraging growth in more ways than one. In addition to Jump Into Storytime — a weekly gathering at the Wheatley branch — the 11 facilities throughout the municipality are introducing the CKPL Grows Seed Library. Starting Wednesday, March 20, a Chatham-Kent Public Library card can be used to ‘check out’ up to five packages of seeds at any of the municipality’s 11 public library branches including the Wheatley location at 35 Talbot Road West. Seeds are available at CKPL circulation desks in a wide assortment of flowers and vegetable varieties for residents to plant in their gardens and yards. In return, the participating branches are encouraging everyone utilizing the free program to save and donate seeds back to CKPL locations in the autumn of this year. Last year, more than 2,200 packages of seeds were ‘checked out’ of CKPL facilities. This year marks the first time CKPL Grows Seeds Library is available at the smaller branches including Wheatley’s. Anyone interested in accepting seed packages from their nearest CKPL location can visit the website www.ckpl.ca or call 519-354-2940 or in Wheatley, 519-825-7131. Last week, Wheatley was among the Chatham-Kent Public Library locations that welcomed youths of all ages for many March Break activities based on a Never Never Land (Continued on Page 2)

St Patrick’s Day at Rosewood Erie Glen

Irish eyes were smiling, as were the residents of Rosewood Erie Glen at its annual St Patrick’s Day celebration. TOP LEFT: Karaoke leprechauns Fran Ferguson and Rose Tako, both longtime members of the award-winning Heart of Essex Chorus, led the happy group in a medley of Irish songs, much to the delight of all present. Their repertoire ranged from thought-provoking ballads like “Danny Boy” and “When Irish Eyes are Smiling” to the more rousing “MacNamara’s Band” and “H-A-RR-I-GAN spells Harrigan!” Resident Paul was the karaoke star of the evening as the program progressed into other non-Irish songs, with staff members Melissa Loeppgy and Carmie Maacario joining in on the fun.

Local teen seeking kidney donor By Bryan Jessop

LEAMINGTON – The “March” is on to find a suitable kidney match for a young Leamington hockey fan grappling with Dent’s Disease. Nineteen-year-old Austin Reid had been in search of a successful kidney donor applicant since November of last year. Reid was diagnosed with Dent’s Disease — a rare form of kidney disease that affects boys more often than girls — at the age of four. Recently, Austin’s condition has worsened to the point where he has been forced to discontinue his medications. As a result, the affects of the disease have further impacted his health. With no known cure for Dent’s, Austin and his family have been making countless trips to University Hospital in London. Presently, they make the round trip journey twice per month, although the visits were weekly as recently as the Christmas season. The frequency of London hospital appointments varies according to changes in Austin’s condition. To help offset the costs involved with ongoing hospital vis“A lot of people its, the Leamington branch of McDonald’s think it’s as simple as restaurant — where swabbing a cheek and Reid is an employee then waiting to see the — will host “Austin results. It’s a lot more Day” Tuesday, March extensive than that.” 26. Through the entire business day, a — Melanie Metz portion of sales from all beverage and food items will help Austin’s family finance the costs relating to hospital appointments and travel associated with the disease. The date for contributions coincides with March’s status as Kidney Disease Awareness Month. Matthew Tatomir, who has owned the Leamington McDonald’s since September of last year, came up with the idea to host the fundraiser after Austin notified fellow staff and employers that he’d require more time off to deal with his disease. “He said I put in a lot of hard work and that he wanted to give something back,” Austin explained of Tatomir’s decision. If their Western Conference playoff schedule permits, players with the Leamington Flyers will be present throughout the day to sign autographs. Austin, a dedicated hockey fan, has attended Flyers home games regularly since he was an infant. Also stepping forward with a financial contribution to Reid and his family was Charles Diab of The Lesson

Lounge music store in Leamington. Diab himself benefited from transplant surgery, having received a liver in February of 2017 in London. As of earlier this month, 13 applicants that Austin and his family are aware of stepped forward to offer the gift of a kidney. Since the process is voluntarily anonymous, potential donors are not required to reveal their identities to recipients. Of those known applicants, only one has made it through the complex screening process to become a potential match. A useable kidney must come from a living donor and not a cadaver. “It’s not a simple, easy process,” said Austin’s mother Melanie Metz. “A lot of people think it’s as simple as swabbing a cheek and then waiting to see the results. It’s a lot more extensive than that.” As Dent’s Disease is hereditary, Austin is not the only family member who has been diagnosed with the rare condition. His younger brother, two of his uncles and his grandfather were also diagnosed. The first two of three phases for screening potential donors are both based on filling out a set of questionnaires. Kidney donors for Dent’s Disease patients must be in good overall health and cannot have a history of cancer, diabetes, weight issues, smoking or excessive alcohol consumption. Ideally, the donor would be of approximately the same age as Austin. If a donor is still deemed a potential match after the first two phases, they undergo a third phase based on physical testing that includes ultrasounds and blood sample tests. Austin is a culinary arts student at Fanshawe College and has supported other youths with illnesses by volunteering at the Give Kids The World Village in Kissimmee, Florida. The 84-acre, non-profit resort offers week-long vacation getaways for youths with life-threatening illnesses and their families. Anyone interested in becoming a kidney donor for Austin can contact London Health Sciences Centre’s Living Donation Program at 519-685-8500, extension 33552 or e-mail

Fundraiser dinner coming for CF patient By Bryan Jessop

LEAMINGTON – Friends of a local woman in need of a double lung transplant are hoping to see support from the community make the procedure financially possible. Thirty-seven-year-old Jennee Harris of Leamington is a Cystic Fibrosis patient in need of life-saving surgery — a process that will include costly requirements not covered by OHIP or the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP). Six months after she was born, Harris was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. In order to be placed on a waiting list for the two new lungs required, Harris must reside in Toronto. Medical staff at Toronto General Hospital where the procedure would take place explained that with rent at $2,000 per month and an estimated wait of six times plus the additional time she’ll need to live in the region while recovering from surgery, expenses will accumulate to an estimated $40,000. Jennee, who is on disability and cannot cover the costs involved on her own,

will have to be in Toronto for anywhere from six to 15 months. Additionally, Harris is in need of a new physio vest that she wears three times per day to break up the excess mucus gathering in her lungs. The vest that she had been using broke down and with the help of friends, she was able to locate and acquire a used unit as its replacement.

“I’m very honoured, humbled and shocked, for people who don’t even really know me to help me like this.” — Jennifer Harris

“Since it’s used, we have no idea how long it’s going to last,” explained Tarra Wilkinson, a friend of Harris’s. “A new vest will cost about $15,000.” Wilkinson is a long-time friend of Jennee’s who is one of three volunteers behind the efforts to raise the $55,000 required to finance the required move to Toronto for a lung transplant and

a new physio vest for Harris. Jennifer Burma, a close friend of Harris and Wilkinson, is also involved with fundraising efforts, along with another friend, Kaitlin Ryckman. The trio is backed by a team of volunteers also assisting with fundraising efforts. Recently, Kirsty Leathem stepped forward to offer her restaurant — The Family Kitchen — as a host for a fundraising pasta dinner to take place Thursday, April 4 starting at 5 p.m. Tickets for the all you can eat pasta dinner must be purchased in advance and are available at The Family Kitchen (73 Erie St. South), selling at $15 apiece. Tickets can also be bought by contacting Burma at 519982-1012 or Wilkinson at 519-551-9784. The dinner will also feature a raffle and bake sale. Leathem decided to host the dinner as a way to ‘pay it forward’ after the community supported her and her family in a time of need between five and six years ago. “It was entirely her idea,” Wilkinson said of Leathem’s offer to host the fundraiser. “It’s huge for us to

have someone offer to help out like this. This is just one of her ways of bringing the community together again to help someone in need of support during a difficult time.” “I have no words,” Harris said of Leathem’s gesture. “I’m very honoured, humbled and shocked, for people who don’t even really know me to help me like this… and spaghetti is my favourite.”

On March 4 of this year, Harris’s friends set up a Go Fund Me page as a means of collecting donations to help fund the crucial lung transplant. The page at www.gofundme.com can be found by entering “Leamington Cystic Fibrosis” in the search bar. As of earlier this week, about $1,600 of the targeted $55,000 had been raised through the website. Elsewhere, Dave and Liz McCormack of Leg-

acy Auctions raffled off prizes with proceeds to support Harris. Wilkinson explained that other fundraisers are also being considered to help her friend’s medical needs became a reality. “She said that she couldn’t do it, but we couldn’t let her give up,” Wilkinson explained. “We had to step in and do something.”

Grease is the word There’s definitely a great degree of truth to the old adage stating that it’s more satisfying to performing certain tasks on your own. For one, the ‘do it yourself’ approach saves money. Whether your car is in desperate need of a new oil pan gasket or the carpeting in your basement needs replacement, the cost of labour often far exceeds the price of parts. Last weekend, I decided to take on what should have been the most menial of tasks. To be honest, I’m not much of a handyman — I could never build a deck or re-wire any of my home’s electrical sockets. I managed to replace seals in Bryan Jessop the bathtub taps on one occasion and at the best of times, have been known to “R and R” certain parts under the lid of the toilet’s tank. I even installed a new windshield washer fluid pump on my Impala about a year-and-a-half ago. Anyway, writing stories about the success of local entries at the 2019 Autorama got the classic car bug scrambling a little earlier than usual this year. Since then, I’ve been looking forward to changing the oil and filter, greasing up the front end and tossing the battery back into my ’69 Cutlass and bringing the half-century old Oldsmobile back to life for another summer. It’s a bit too early to put ‘er back on the road right now, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to start getting ready. I decided to put a new cartridge in the grease gun, since I recall it’s reluctance to fill up the zerk fittings in mid-late May of last year. That being the case, I figured the old cartridge was empty. Taking the advice of an instructional video, I packed the gun’s cap full of leftover grease from the old tube and then took the end off a new one and shoved it into place. I removed the pop can-like tab, twisted the cap/trigger section of the gun back into place, backed it off a bit to let the air out while pushing the plunger back to the top and then retightened said cap/trigger. Easy-peasy. Or so I thought. I gave the trigger a couple tests squeezes and aside from a short, thin squiggle of the old grease still lodged in the hose… nothing. I figured that an air pocket got trapped somewhere in the gun’s tube, so I again removed the cap/trigger. Sadly, I forgot to back off the plunger first, so fresh, red grease poured out all over the place — creating what literally looked like a ‘bloody’ mess. After firing off a few four-letter expletives that my son may or may not have heard from the other side of the garage wall and down the stairs, I realized that the colour wasn’t the only difference between the old and new grease. The consistency (and appearance) of the new stuff was like fresh, smooth strawberry jam. The old stuff that I had just packed into the cap and hose passage was more like million-year-old peanut butter mixed with asphalt. Luckily, I had another tube of grease lying around. Unluckily, the tube that I had just jammed into place wasn’t as cooperative with the removal process as the first. The guy on the Youtube video just stuck a hand partially into the empty cartridge and pulled it out. My first attempt at doing so with the new tube earned me nothing more than a deep cut into my right thumb, triggering yet another tirade of commentary that I wouldn’t even consider repeating in the pages of this newspaper. Eventually, I managed to clean out the old crud, remove the second cartridge with vice grips and install the third. Finally, a few pumps of the trigger expelled a bit of air and the remnants of the old grease until the fresh red stuff began pouring out — a near perfect match to the blood still escaping from my thumb. To sum it up, if you ever need anyone to take a simple two-minute job and turn it into 40 minutes of cursing, bleeding and making a ridiculous greasy mess, you know where to find me. Still, there was that certain amount of satisfaction (along with a dash of frustration, injury and embarrassment) in getting the job done myself.

Council accepts tenders for road projects

Mayor nominated to AMO board By Bryan Jessop

LEAMINGTON – For the newest term, the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) will include representation from Leamington. Municipal Council has supported Mayor Hilda MacDonald’s request for nomination to the AMO’s board of directors for the Small Urban Caucus group for the term spanning 2019 to the year 2022. The topic came up as a matter for consideration during council’s Tuesday, March 12 meeting, from which the mayor was absent. “It keeps Leamington Council’s decision to involved at a accommodate MacDonhigher level of this ald’s nomination request organization.” automatically appointed — Peter her to the AMO Small Neufeld Urban Caucus board of directors as a director. The decision was made after a brief discussion that included an inquiry on the costs that would be involved. Leamington CAO Peter Neufeld noted that while the costs involved with appointing the mayor to the AMO’s board of directors were not immediately available to him at that time, he strongly believed that having representation on the board outweighed any expenses involved. “It keeps Leamington involved at a higher level of this organization,” he explained. “In the balance between cost and benefit, the benefits will outweigh the costs.” On average, the board of directors for the AMO group MacDonald has joined meets six times per year. Some of those meetings can be attended by teleconference calls. Under the terms of the AMO nomination request, costs related to AMO functions will be paid for by the municipality and recorded separately from standard council expenses. The nomination form will be submitted to the AMO on or prior to Friday, April 5.

KINGSVILLE – To a request by Old Colony Mennonite Church to a bulk discount rate on 40 burial plots at Graceland Cemetery – Kingsville Municipal Council said no. According to the request, the church was asking for the purchase of 40 plots at $600 per plot. The plots are regularly priced at $750 each. Jennifer Astrologo, Kingsville’s director of cor-

Multiple fire stations respond to horse barn fire CHATHAM-KENT – Tilbury Station 19 firefighters were dispatched at 6 a.m. Saturday morning, March 16, to a fire at a horse barn at 3405 Hornick Line, Tilbury. The owner of the home was up at the time and noticed a glow coming from the barn. On arrival, fire crews found the hayloft heavily involved in fire. The owner was able to remove all the animals from the barn prior to the arrival of the fire crews. Additional firefighters and water tankers were brought in from Wheatley, Merlin, Raleigh North and Raleigh South to assist with extinguishing the flames. An aerial ladder from Tilbury was used to knock down the bulk of the fire. Crews remained at the scene for an extended period of time to ensure that deep-seated fire in the attic was extinguished. A house and neighbouring barns were also exposed. The fire has been deemed accidental. There were no injuries reported. Loss is estimated at $225,000.

porate services, told Council they had granted such a request in the past but warned Council it could be a precedent setting decision. Instead, Council requested administration to develop a policy when dealing with the bulk sale of cemetery plots. Council was told the town is home to eight cemeteries, with a waiting list for plots at Green Hill Cemetery. Councillors suggested the policy look at exactly what constitutes a bulk purchase

and whether the policy will be ‘church specific’.

KINGSVILLE – Kingsville Council approved the recommendation and awarding of tenders for the 2019 capital roads projects. Tim DelGreco, manger of municipal services, recommended Council accept the tenders of Mill-Am Corporation for the resurfacing of Heritage Road from Main St. West to the Chrysler Greenway, Lansdowne Ave. from Mill St. East to Park St., and the Cedarhurst Subdivision. He also asked Council to direct administration to put out tenders for the rehabilitation of Spruce St. South, Road 9 West and Peterson Sideroad.

CK EMS adding blue emergency lights CHATHAM-KENT – Chatham-Kent EMS is adding blue lights to their fleet of vehicles. Traditionally, paramedic units used red and white flashing lights, but safety research has shown that the combination of blue and red are more noticeable to motorists. These modifications are designed to get the attention of motorists and improve safety for the general public, patients and paramedics. The human eye sees blue more brightly at night and there will be a contrast with the taillights of other vehicles. What remains the same are the requirements for motorists to pull over to the nearest curb and stop when approached from any direction by any emergency vehicle with its emergency lights activated.

Noise issue unresolved

SOUTHPOINT

By Pat Bailey

KINGSVILLE – An attempt by Kingsville Municipal Council to resolve a noise complaint lodged by the neighbour of a car wash business became heated when Council failed to follow the recommendation made by town administration. Manager of Planning Services Robert Brown suggested Council hire Dillon Consulting to do a proper noise impact assessment in an attempt to quiet the noise from the car wash dryers and appease neighbours Tony and Mary Taylor. Instead, the motion was defeated after being told the study would cost the car wash owners about $6,500. Several councillors expressed their dissatisfaction with the recommendation, saying they believed the decibel level limit in the site plan agreement was virtually unattainable. Council was told traffic levels alone often exceed the 60 decibel limit, which is the number in the agreement with the car wash owners . “I don’t see a win here,” Councillor Kim DeYong said of the 10-month long heated issue. “It’s a lose-lose.” The Taylors told Council at a previous meeting that they were unable to enjoy their property on a nice day because the noise was constant. But DeYong said it poses a problem when the traffic alone is often above the 60 decibel level before even adding in the noise of the car wash dryers. Councillor Tony Gaffan, who lives in the neighbourhood of the Main St. car wash, said, “I feel for the neighbours and the business owners,” but he believes the number (decibel level) was not realistic considering it’s on an industrial road on a commercial property. He said he felt burdening the car wash owners with the cost of the study was unfair — “maybe if we had started at a realistic number.” The Taylors, who were in Council chambers, voiced their displeasure but were quickly hushed by Deputy-Mayor Gord Queen. While nothing was actually resolved, Chief Administrative Officer Peggy Van Mierlo-West said staff will have to look at the ramifications and next step in an attempt to resolve the problem. She said if Council wishes to amend the site plan agreement, they must do some reviews. DeYong urged the Taylors to submit any further comments they may have to accompany the follow-up report by administration. Nearing the one-year anniversary of the car wash opening, the noise issue continues.

Southpoint Sun - 17

Atom Stars takes part in Walter Gretzky tournament This past weekend, the Southpoint Atom Stars took part in the 38th annual Walter Gretzky tournament in Brantford. The Stars started the tournament with an early morning game against the Brantford Ice Cats. Five minutes into the first period, Ava Carreiro popped it in the net, assisted by Chloe Taylor. Carreiro was then able to land another goal in the net during the second period. The Stars kept working hard and in the third, Emma Brown, Alexa Thiele and Natalie Edwards landed goals. The Ice Cats were able to sneak one past Taylor Lafaive, but it just wasn’t enough and the Stars won 5-1. Later that day, the Stars battled the Lucan Irish and Arabella Pannunzio found the net 45 seconds into the game. Ava Carreiro landed two more goals in the last three minutes of the first. In the second, the Irish popped two in the net, but Carreiro landed another goal right between the pipes. The Irish scored once more, but it just wasn’t enough and the Stars won 4-3. On Saturday morning, the Stars played the Lamb-

ton Attack. Lambton scored within the first minute but the Stars quickly retaliated with a goal from Ava Carreiro. With two minutes left in the first, Lambton scored again. Fifty-two seconds into the second, a scramble in front of the next allowed Alexis Lamb to poke it in with assists from Jordyn Lafaive and Grace Bedard. With less than five minutes in the second, Lambton popped it into the net to take the lead again. The Stars kept pressure on the Attack and in the third, Jordyn Lafaive passed it to Ava Carreiro to tie up the game. The game ended in a 3-3 tie. Later that afternoon, the Stars battled the Mooretown Lady Flags. This game was a constant battle back and forth with Taylor Lafaive making some great saves and the defense, which consisted of Alexis Lamb, Payton Insley, Emma Brown

and Arabella Punnunzio, kept it out of their end. The Stars had many shots on the Lady Flags but just couldn’t get it past the goalie. The game ended 0-0. The two wins and two ties landed the Stars in the championship game Sunday, revisiting the Lambton Attack. The first period was a constant battle back and forth with Taylor Lefaive making some amazing saves. Finally, with 1:52 left in the second period, Lambton scored, giving them the lead. The Stars played their hearts out but the puck just couldn’t find the net and the final score was 1-0 for the Attack. The coaching staff of Chris Taylor, Karen Burgess, Whit Thiele, Dylan Taylor and Alyssa Lamb are extremely proud of all the girls and their accomplishments throughout the tournament. Great job, Stars!

The Southpoint Atom Stars competed at the 38th annual Walter Gretzky Tournament in Brantford on the weekend where they made it all the way to the championship game before losing the final in a constant back and forth battle versus the Lambton Attack. Team members are, front row, left to right: Selina Gualtieri, Alexa Thiele, Chloe Taylor, Ava Carreiro. In back: Emma Brown, Taylor Lafaive, Arabella Pannunzio, Jordyn Lafaive, Alexis Lamb, Grace Bedard, Payton Insley, Natalie Edwards. (Submitted photo)

Tyler St. John-Worth fight Another young boxer fighting under the guidance of Kingsville coach Doug Paterson (left) has experienced the thrill of victory once again. On Saturday, March 9, Tyler St. John Worth of Tilbury (right) made a trip to Guelph to take on Nick Lord of Sarnia. Lord’s previous experience included multi gold medal provincial championship victories, making him a tough adversary for St. John Worth. The Tilbury fighter however administered three standing eight counts to Lord and almost took him out in the third. Although Paterson’s fighter slowed down Lord with a succession of body shots, he couldn’t quite put the championship adversary away for good. St. John Worth however won the bout in a unanimous judges’ decision of 3-0. Fighting in the men’s open division, Tyler’s next fight will be the main event in London Saturday, Apr. 27.

Peewee Minors face Stars in exhibition play It’s funny how sometimes things feel like they go on forever, and others seem to go by in the blink of an eye. It’s crazy when it’s the same thing that simultaneously seemed long, all of a sudden ends. That’s sort of how the hockey season works. Tryouts start in May, teams picked by June, on the ice in August – all of that before you even start the season! Factor in practices, games, tournaments and team events starting in September, and the hockey season starts to feel as though it goes on forever. Then, just like that, you’re down to your last two games, wishing for a way to stop it from ending. One way to do this is by playing exhibition games, and that’s precisely what the Southpoint Peewee Minor Franklin Fisheries team did with the Amherstburg Stars over the March Break. It’s been a rough season for these two teams, but when they come up against each other it’s fairly even and results in a good game to watch. Last Wednesday, on home ice, the Caps hosted the Stars. Tyler Franklin started the Caps off, assisted by Taylor Insley, only to be answered back 10 seconds later by the Stars. Christopher McLean scored the go-ahead goal, assisted by Colton Selwood and Dom Bordignon. Neither team scored in the second period, but the third period would bring the rain for the Caps. Franklin scored again, assisted by Selwood, making it 3-1, followed by McLean again lighting the lamp, assisted by Max Youssef and Chase Simpson. Nathan Omar sent another one home, assisted by Simpson and Johnny Kennette, and then Liam Ouellette joined in, assisted by Selwood and Insley. The Stars finally answered back making it 6-2. Ouellette closed out the scoring, assisted by Nick Mastromatteo and Simpson. The final score was 7-2. With some leftover ice time, the Caps invited the Stars to participate in a friendly shootout competition as this would be the last time these two teams would meet for this season. Just a couple of games remain now for the Caps in this long season, and so we consider the immortal words of Dr. Suess: “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

Flyers trail Kings in semis By Bryan Jessop

For the second time this season, the Leamington Flyers started a playoff series with a game ending in a shutout. The second time, however, they were on the favourable side of that shutout. The Flyers and Komoka Kings kicked off the Western Conference semifinal series Thursday, March 14 with a 4-0 victory favouring Leamington. The Kings applied heavy offensive pressure with a recurring power play, but consistently ran into a wall between the posts in the Flyers net in the form of Zach Borgiel. Leamington drew first blood 24 seconds after the opening faceoff with what turned out to be the only tally of the opening 20 minutes. Josh King forced a turnover behind the Kings’ net and quickly fed the puck to Preston Corp, who chipped a shot into the lower right corner for the 1-0 lead. The host team’s offence slowed down from there, settling for the onegoal lead and an even 1010 status on the shot counter. The Flyers found penalty trouble in the middle frame, paving the way for a 12-9 shots on goal advantage for the Kings. Zach Bor-

giel however came up with a handful of impressive and timely saves to keep his team in the lead while Leamington forwards managed to take advantage of holes found in the Komoka armour at the other end of the ice. Michael Andrews made it 2-0 by tapping a Ryan Gagnier pass into the right side of Owen Say’s net from the doorstep. The play was set in motion on a pass from Johnny Ulicny.

Just over three minutes later, Wyatt O’Neil wired a wrist shot from the slot into the high, right side of the mesh for a 3-0 advantage. The goal was set up by Dylan Weston and Adam Groat. Leamington continued to take penalties, but killed off the Komoka man advantages with some help from more key saves by Borgiel. Forward lines for the Flyers picked up some momentum in the third, where they managed one more insurance goal. From the perimeter of the crease, Liam Hall took hold of a rebound from a save on a Matthew Boring

shot and sent a low backhand tap over the line to complete the scoring. Kade McKibbon drew the second assist. Shots were nearly even at 35-34 favouring Leamington while the hosts were zero for one on the power play and Komoka was zero for six. “Zach Borgiel was our best player tonight, no doubt about that,” explained Flyers head coach Cam Crowder, who noted that his team focused heavily on Komoka’s biggest offensive threats Joel Mazzilli and Ryan McAllister. “We got the shutout, but we can definitely play better. We’re a hard forechecking team and we didn’t do that tonight.” “We had a really good start, but they started to bounce back against us,” Borgiel added. “We’ve got to play tough physically against them, but we also have to play disciplined and stay out of the (penalty) box.” Game 2 brought the teams to Komoka Saturday, March 16, where the Flyers lost in a score of 3-2, bringing the series standings to 1-1. Leamington started strong with goals by O’Neil and Zach Taylor, but allowed the Kings to bounce back and eventually score the gamewinning power play goal 12 seconds into the second

Wyatt O’Neil briefly glances at one of the referees to discover whether or not he would be assessed a penalty for taking down Komoka’s D’Arcy Panziera behind the Kings’ net during third period action in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals Thursday, March 14 at Highbury Canco Arena. There was no penalty on the play. The Flyers won 4-0 to take a 1-0 series lead. (Southpoint Sun Photo)

period. Game 3 in Leamington unraveled as an instant replay of Game 2, where Thomas Michaud and Brett Postula put the Flyers out to a 2-0 lead. Komoka again posted a comeback, however, completed by the midway mark of the second stanza for another 3-2 final and a 2-1 series lead for the Kings. Game 4 was played in Komoka Tuesday, March 19. Results were not available by press deadline. Game 5 will be played Thursday, March 21 at 7:10 p.m. in Leamington. If necessary,

Game 6 will begin at 7:15 p.m. in Komoka Saturday, March 23 at the deciding seventh match will take place Sunday, March 24 at 7:10 p.m. at the Highbury Canco rink. The Flyers brought home a considerable collection of awards from the 2019 Western Conference Awards — this year lacking a banquet. Leamington took the Stan Moore Award for finishing the regular season in first place while Gagnier won the Roy Bruhiman Memorial Award for Rookie of the Year. The Uni-Fab Award for top defenseman went

to Levi Tetrault of the Flyers as Adam Jeffery earned honours with the Southland Insurance Award for most points by a rookie. The Roy Caley Award for combined lowest goals against average went to Leamington’s Borgiel and Ryan Polidori while the Pete’s Sports Coach Staff of the Year honours went to the Flyers’ Cam Crowder, Cameron Sinclair, Zack Percy and Matt Anthony. Making First Team All Stars were the Flyers’ Borgiel and Tetrault while Gagnier made Rookie Team All Stars.

Goal is to grow local fresh food in underser ved markets around the globe KINGSVILLE – Mastronardi Produce, a leader in the greenhouse industry, announced on March 13 that it has teamed up with U.S. philanthropist and billionaire John Paul DeJoria to make quality, flavourful produce more widely accessible. The partnership will focus on developing Advanced High-Density Farming Systems to grow local fresh food in underserved markets around the globe. Advanced High-Density Farming Systems are individual collections of existing and developing high-tech growing innovations and equipment. Each customized system will include cutting-edge growing facilities, revolutionary automation, water-saving irrigation, energy efficient lighting and state-of-the-art systems for monitoring growing conditions. “We believe everyone should have healthy and fresh produce options. John Paul shares our commitment, and we saw the potential to work together on this global high-tech farming initiative, which will focus on growing healthy food where it’s needed most,” says Paul Mastronardi, President and CEO, and the fourth-generation family member leading Mastronardi Produce. “Partnering with Mastronardi Produce was an easy choice,” said DeJoria. “I want to help revolutionize this industry so more people have access to fresh produce, and finally found the opportunity in partnering with Paul, who is a trailblazing force in the category. He pioneered high-tech berry growing, branded the first tomato, and led the way in plastic reduction—it is apparent that we share a passion for disruptive innovation.” John Paul DeJoria is the visionary behind Patrón® Spirits, the original ultra-premium tequila that was acquired by Bacardi Limited in 2018. DeJoria is also the co-founder and Chairman of John Paul Mitchell Systems®, the global luxury hair care brand, as well as ROK Group of Companies, which offers a diverse portfolio of products that improve the

Eight years to rebuild a 1933 Buick Brian Ray of Waterloo writes: “Hi Bill. My first car was a 1929 Pontiac coupe which I purchased in 1959 when I was 14. At the time, I had no tools, talent, money, and few people I could turn to for advice. “I made all the novice mistakes but was able to convert it to a Model A Ford transverse spring front end and installed a 1954 Buick nail head V8. I got it running and somewhat driveable, but only when the police were not around. “Since then, all the older cars I have built (’28 Ford Tudor, ’29 Ford roadster pickup, and two 1934 Chev coupes) were full fender. “My 1933 Buick was built as a tribute to my Bill Sherk Pontiac which never made it to completion. The ’60s vintage exhaust, moon hubcaps, and dual frenched antenna are part of that theme. “I bought the Buick in 2000 and it was on the road in 2008. The previous owner had stored it in a barn for 10 years. The owner before him had started it as a street rod with the start of a Chevy drive train. “Unfortunately, he also removed the entire wooden frame in the body which then sat for 10-plus years in an unsupported state, which badly distorted the body. “The first two summers of the rebuild were spent on bringing the body back into shape. I did this by building a frame that supported the body by the roof so I could push the lower sections back into shape, replacing the wooden floor with metal and a mix of steel and oak to replace the body framing. “It went much better after that, but took eight years because it was built on a budget. And unlike the Pontiac, the Buick has a small block Chev V8, automatic and some creature
