Specialists, u rg ent care, walk-i n cli n i c part o f Ri n gwo o d D rive pro posal
Medical centre planned for next year BY SANDRA BOLAN
There is nothing more frustrating than going to your doctor and being told you need to see a specialist. But that practitioner is booked for the next six months. A new medical clinic being proposed for Stouffville will alleviate that wait time, as well as provide
a walk-in clinic and urgent care/ pain centre. Also anticipated to be offered at the clinic is physiotherapy, chiropody, optometry, dentistry, ultrasound and X-ray as well as a pharmacy. “It is a very forward-thinking model,” said Ajay Jain, vice-president of business development for CMC Medical and Dental Centres.
“As patients move through the system faster, we can recognize health concerns faster,” Mr. Jain said. “We’re hoping to keep everybody in our building so nobody has to go elsewhere, which means we’ll have a ton of doctors and specialists there.” Initially, Mr. Jain said he expects there will be two to three family
doctors in the facility and, when full in a couple of years, that number is anticipated to be between six and seven. A total of 10 to 12 specialists is expected to set up practices there. “It’s hard to predict what the exact number will be, so conservatively See HEALTH, page 20.

Audrey Avery will celebrate her 100th birthday with family, friends and fellow residents of Parkview Home this weekend. STAFF PHOTO/STEVE SOMERVILLE
Birthday girl joining century club at Parkview
touffville’s Parkview Home has its own Wall of Fame. It’s on the second floor of the long-term care facility, between the areas of Maple Grove and Cedar Grove. The display portrays photographs of 12 residents who, from 2001 to 2011, attained an age of 100 years. The celebrated group includes: Bertha Stouffer, (2001); Iva Keffer, (2004); Melba Steckley, (2004); Gertrude Moses, (2005); Beatrice Kett, (2006); Marion Tait, (2006); Ada Reesor, (2006); Marjorie Cook, (2006); Clara Reardon, (2010); Edgar Hunter, (2010); Sadie Johnston, (2011) and Grace Paterson, (2011). Soon to be added to this distinctive gallery is a photo of Audrey (Lewis) Avery. She’ll reach the century plateau Saturday. A celebration, to include family members and close friends, is planned from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. She’ll also participate in Parkview’s monthly birthday party
Roaming Around with Jim Thomas tomorrow Nephew Lewis Barclay of Newmarket and niece Laurie Garrett of Keswick are finalizing Saturday’s arrangements. Three step-children, Lorne Avery from Sidney, British
Columbia; Glenn Avery from Orillia and Lois Mervin from Red Deer, Alberta hope to attend. Audrey Lewis was born on the 9th concession of Markham, one of 12 children in the family of George and Sarah Lewis. She attended S.S. No. 19 public school. With the farm property just south of the CNR crossing, the distance required to walk from home to school was considerable. This sometimes presented problems, particularly during winter months when snow often blocked the road. “When we kids couldn’t make it, I guess there was no school,” Audrey recalls. Audrey’s memory is remarkable, even to naming teachers. “Bert Reynolds was extremely strict,” she remembers, “and the pupils all knew it. We were happy when he was replaced by a lady.” Following her mother’s move closer to the school, Audrey took
over the onerous chores of caretaker. The job included carrying coal and wood from an adjacent shed, often in bitter cold. Nicknames were not uncommon back in the 1930s and 40s. When a neighbour’s dog named “Pete” suddenly died, the moniker was, for some unknown reason, transferred. To Lew, her nephew, Audrey’s always been “Pete”. “Imagine, being called after a dog,” Audrey says with a smile. When Lew’s mother died, he was but five months old. He came to live with his aunt and her mother. “Pete was like a mother to me,” he said. He remembers the two of them attending the Canadian National Exhibition for a first time. As darkness fell, a barrage of fireworks lit up the night sky. “I’d never seen fireworks before,” Lew recalls, “I hollered ‘run Pete run’.” Audrey retains fond memories of
First Zion Baptist church, now located on the grounds of the Markham museum. She faithfully played the pump organ there 25 years. She also taught Sunday school. Following her marriage to Noel Avery in 1963, they lived on Hwy. 48 near Bethesda Road. Mr. Avery died four years later. Audrey lived for a time on Ninth Line South, then moved to Testa Villa Apartments on Albert Street where she remained 30 years. She took up residence at Parkview Home in 2008. Audrey has always loved flowers, gladiolas being her favourites. Her floral entries won many awards at Stouffville Horticultural Society shows. This Saturday, Audrey Avery, not her flowers, will be the centre of attention. Congratulations. Jim Thomas is a Stouffville resident who has written for area newspapers for more than 60 years.

Toast this, Stouffville What are your birthday plans, Whitchurch-Stouffville? How will you mark Canada’s 145th birthday this weekend? Many of you will be in Stouffville Memorial Park Sunday, enjoying the Strawberry Festival with friends and family. You’ll top off the day with the traditional Canada Day cake and fireworks. As you raise that dessert fork or admire the pyrotechnics, let’s toast some things truly Canadian for which we should be thankful: • Our new-look WhitchurchStouffville. One of the fastest-growing communities in Canada, the population boomed by 54 per cent, from 24,000 to 37,000, between 2006 and 2011. You may not like the added congestion and the endless construction, especially in urban Stouffville. But we should appreciate being more multicultural, more a reflection of what this country is all about. Thanks to our fledgling municipal multicultural association for pushing this agenda. • Our veterans. There might not be a Canada without the waves of men and women who served in our armed services over the decades, voluntarily. From Afghanistan back, Canadians have stood up and served this country. As the bumper stickers say, Thank a veteran, Canada. • Karen Cockburn. Less than one month from now, the eyes of the world will be focused on London and its Olympic Games. Folks in Stouffville will be pulling for one of our own, Ms Cockburn, just as they did four years ago during the Beijing Games. Ms Cockburn adopted Stouffville as her home town, just as her neighbours took her in as one of their own. She showed up at community fundraisers and a parade in her honour. She’d like nothing more than to cap her extraordinary career by winning a record fourth straight Olympic medal for Canada. Her haul to date includes two silvers and a bronze from three Games — and the hearts of residents of Stouffville. • Hockey. It’s one of the ties that binds this nation. WhitchurchStouffville may not officially be Hockeyville, but this is a hockey town, complete with the 2012 Ontario Hockey Association Jr. A champion Spirit. Its new banner joined a host of others decorating our arenas last week.

No guarantee of festival fun
Museum ‘links’ us to our past By Frank Van Veen
This year, Canada celebrates its 145th birthday. At the same time, the former Township of Whitchurch celebrates its 220th birthday and the Village of Stouffville its 135th birthday. I was recently fortunate enough to have a private tour of the renovated and expanded Whitchurch-Stouffville Museum and community centre in Vandorf. The Sun-Tribune’s Community Links panel also met at the facility and took a tour during its June meeting. I was pleasantly surprised at what a terrific resource this is for the community. The museum has a one-room cabin, fully furnished, dating back to the late 1700s through to items from Stouffville’s centenary in 1977 and everything in between. If you have not already been, take a few hours and visit this wonderful new addition to our town. The folks that run the museum, full time and volunteers, have a passion for their work. They will spend as much time as you would like to explain the segments of the museum. The one-room log cabin, originally built in Ballantrae and moved to the museum grounds on Woodbine Avenue, is fascinating. The upper-class, three-bedroom farm house with servants quarters is completely restored and fully furnished with period furniture and staffed by volunteers in period costumes. It’s originally from Stouffville. The barn has implements used with only man and horse power. The one-room school house has also been completely restored to appear as
it was in the mid 1800s. Take time to use the research room and discover we don’t really own the land on which our homes sit, we are merely custodians until the next generation comes along. Our family’s 10-acre farm was originally part of 200 acres granted to the Ferguson family by John Graves Simcoe. There are also numerous photographs of locations throughout Whitchurch-Stouffville.
Looking back on how folks lived in the 1700s and 1800s, I wonder who was better off. We live in an age where we now communicate more through social media, e-mail and texts. Face-to-face communication is waning. Looking back on how folks lived in the 1700s and 1800s, I wonder who was better off. They may not have had running water, electricity or indoor toilets, but they did have much closer family and community connections. Take the time to visit the past and appreciate some of the things that have fallen by the wayside. Be sure to take your kids. A member of our group said he took his teenaged daughter to the museum and she said to him: “I never knew that this was here. Thanks for taking me, Dad”. Frank Van Veen is a member of the Sun-Tribune’s Community Links panel. If you’re interested in joining the panel, e-mail editor Jim Mason at email@example.com
Try to mix a little thinking with your drinking, eating and other tomfoolery this weekend. The occasion, should you require one? The 28th annual Whitchurch-Stouffville Strawberry Festival. Your annual chance to, amongst other things, walk down the middle of Main Street Saturday afternoon while inhaling a Kielbasa or admire fireworks with a few thousand of your closest friends and neighbours the following evening. It’s party time. The kids are through school. The cottage and open highway beckon. Throw out the usual routine for a couple of months. Enjoy. Our festival, from its humble roots as a pancake breakfast, ball tourney and short parade in the early 1980s, is mega. Thousands attend. But it doesn’t happen by itself. You’ll see a long list of directors and other volunteers, including a wave of newcomers to the event, in the official festival guide put out by The Sun-Tribune. (Extra copies will be available at our office and event sites this weekend.) Thank them and the festival pioneers, including Ged Stonehouse, Bill Kamps, Jim Heidema and Jim Kidd, who laid the groundwork for our fun. It’s not an automatic. A similarly popular summer festival from the 1980s in neighbouring Uxbridge was cancelled. Also ill-fated? Our own magic festival of the 1980s and a one-day fall fest that only lasted two years in the mid-1990s on Main Street before folding its tent for good. Enjoy the festival? Thank a festival volunteer or sponsor this weekend. Better yet, offer to chip in yourself. Jim Mason is editor of The SunTribune.

CANADA DAY! SAUSAGESCHAR WE CELEBRATE
We will be featuring many things this week that are uniquely Canadian in celebration of our national birthday. There is much that is amazing about our country, and the variety of culinary thrills is but part of it. I have had the good fortune to travel fairly widely and, although we always enjoy ourselves, it is also always a thrill to return home to Canada. So here goes...
Cranberry and maple are two biggies in our cuisine, and we've combined them to make this very patriotic sausage! These are great either grilled or oven-roasted if you encounter % rain. OFF THIS Reg. $5.99/lb WEEK
This is the time of the year that this amazing lettuce is available. The girl who grows it (Diane Kretchmar) has certainly had all the ups and downs of crop failures, These melons now come from Mexico, are a size tornadoes, locust invasions and the like, but every season '5' which is fairly large, and are sweet to eat! when I call her, she's ready to go again — a perennial of sorts!

Are you odd? ... or even?
Did you know?
Here’s what you can do!
Summer outdoor water use bylaws are now in effect across York Region.
Follow your local bylaw. If your house number is odd, water on odd-numbered days. If it is even, water only on even-numbered days. And remember … only one inch of water per week will keep your lawn healthy.
Town assets up $17M sists of water and sewer, rose by $7.8 million between 2010 and 2011 to $45.9 million. The tangible capital assets were noted mostly for tracking purposes, according to Mr. Pourvahidi. “There’s no liquidation to this. We can’t sell our streets to someone, we can’t sell our sidewalks, the buildings‚ somewhat yes, but not a lot,” he said.
BY SANDRA BOLAN
Whitchurch-Stouffville’s tangible capital assets have increased by $17 million between 2010 and 2011. The increase is due to the purchase of town hall, as well as the completion of Bethesda Sports Fields, Memorial Park’s ball diamond, as well as various road and water/ waste water projects. The town’s tangible capital assets, as of the end of last year, were valued at $225.8 million. “When we build, then the value is going to go higher. The older they get, the less value they have,” said Marc Pourvahidi, the town’s treasurer and director of finance. “I don’t think there is any right or wrong level of assets,” he said. The municipality also has a number of other facilities that have been completed during the past few years, including Weldon Road’s fire hall and Clippers Sports Complex. “We’ll need to have a long-term plan to ensure the long-term assets are taken care of,” Mr. Pourvahidi said. Of the seven categories of assets noted in the June 19 report to council, facilities increased from $46.5 million in 2010 to $56.6 million in 2011, while land improvement assets jumped from $8.6 million (2010) to $13.6 million (2011). Environmental infrastructure, which con-
‘We’ll need to have a long-term plan to ensure the long-term assets are taken care of.’ Down the road, the treasurer said statistics may be available that would enable municipalities to compare the tangible capital assets to each other by the square kilometre but “even that is not going to be that meaningful because we’re such a (physically) large municipality” and have a number of regional roads. The report also noted the town’s longterm liabilities have increased by $7.9 million from 2010 to 2011 to $35.4 million. Four projects will be paid off come 2035/36 - the Clippers Complex, fire hall, Main Street improvements as well as the operations centre. The new town hall will be mortgage-free come 2051. Interest rates range from 3.51 to 4.89 per cent, according to the June 19 council report.

Olivia Pridham made a trip to Pittsburgh, Pa. and the National Hockey League’s annual entry draft last weekend. While at the Consol Energy Center, home of the Pittsburgh Penguins, the nine-yearold Stouffville resident wasn’t there just to sit in the stands and watch the proceedings. Rather, she was right in the nerve centre of action, on the arena floor. A Grade 3 student at Summitview Public School, Olivia served as a runner for the Colorado Avalanche during the two-day event. Her presence stemmed largely through her father Brandon, who has been employed
by the NHL over the last 13 years and serves as senior director, central registry and senior advisor, central scouting. “It was so much fun,” she said. Among her duties was to carry out team errands, including the gathering of printouts on draft picks and or trade information from a copier, and to ensure the Avalanche table was well organized and club management attendance was taken care of. “I loved being involved with everything going on and meeting and working with the Avalanche management team. They were so nice to me,” she said. Olivia hopes to work again at next year’s draft in Newark, N.J.

The emerald ash borer “is the latest in a long line of threats to” trees in York Region.
“You can’t stop it, but that doesn’t mean you run away,” he said. “We’re doing our best to control the spread.” Still, it’s a worry, considering approximately 10 to 15 per cent of our regional forest is ash trees. Ever the scientist, Mr. Buchanan takes the emerald ash borer in stride. “The borer is the latest in a long line of threats to the forest,” he said. “There’s always something around the corner. That’s the natural order of things.” York Region began 2012 vector-borne disease program activities in May, focusing on West Nile virus and Lyme disease surveillance, education and mosquito control. Vector-borne diseases are transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected vector organism, such as a mosquito or tick.
While the nasty invasive bugs will benefit from the dramatic weather shift, chances are traditional nuisances, including black flies and mosquitoes, could suffer. These insects and their brethren, such as the common fly, have different life cycles. Low snow cover and subsequent minimal run off and dry spells mean the moisture and standing water in which they breed is low. While the region’s environmental services department doesn’t monitor mosquitoes and flies, it’s safe to say their populations may be diminished this year, he said. The battle is squarely against the emerald ash borer, Mr. Buchanan said.
focus on west nile “In 2011, four mosquito pools tested positive for West Nile virus,” medical officer of health Dr. Karim Kurji said. “Continued emphasis on awareness, surveillance, self-protection and larviciding activities will ensure the risk and impact to York Region residents remains low.” Mosquitoes collected in Oakville and Milton in Halton Region tested positive this week for West Nile, earlier than usual, say medical authorities there. For more on vector-borne diseases, personal protection or reporting stagnant water, call York Region Health Connection at 1-800-361-5653 or visit york.ca/westnile
Our mild fall and winter and unseasonably warm, dry spring are a one-two punch in favour of invasive insect species, York Region natural heritage and forestry manager Ian Buchanan said. Tree-destroying critters such as the emerald ash borer and Asian long-horned beetle went into the winter in great shape, while our forests are in a weakened state, he explained. Invasive insect larvae live under tree bark. With a mild fall to enjoy prolonged feeding, the larvae were more robust heading into the winter. With virtually no winter kill, there are more of the creatures, Mr. Buchanan said. This all sets the stage for what promises to be a banner year for the emerald ash borer, which has already killed millions of ash trees in southwestern Ontario, Michigan and surrounding states. The lack of rain and early spring could have negative consequences on tree growth and ability to ward off bug infestation, he said.
‘come and get me’ Trees leafed early and are now emitting natural chemicals called volatiles that attracts pests. “It’s as though the trees are calling out to the emerald ash borer and saying, ‘Come and get me’,” he said. It’ll be a challenge for the trees covering 22.5 per cent of York, Mr. Buchanan said.
SUN-TRIBUNE FILE PHOTO
The Asian long-horned beetle is well controlled as a result of a campaign against the species, which was accidentally introduced to North America and first discovered in 1996. This beetle is believed to have spread from Asia in solid wood packaging material. The region, working in tandem with federal agencies, including the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, has likely successfully eradicated the beetle. The test of its elimination is a five year period, ending in 2013, during which hopefully none are discovered. The region has an emerald ash borer management program in place, Mr. Buchanan said.

SPORTS: No pre-draft interview required by Carolina
Canes no talk, all action with Carrick BY MICHAEL HAYAKAWA
When Trevor Carrick went through interviews with National Hockey League clubs during the recent league’s prospect combine, the one team he did not have any conversations with were the Carolina Hurricanes. Perhaps the Hurricanes already knew what type of person and player the 17-year-old Stouffville resident and Mississauga-St. Michael’s Majors’ defenceman was before this year’s NHL entry draft took place last weekend in Pittsburgh. For when the Hurricanes’ staff went up to the podium during the fourth round of the draft Saturday to announce their selection, Carrick was the 115th player overall to be selected. “I had no idea they were interested in me. I never talked to them prior to the draft, nor did they request an interview at the combine,” the sixfoot, two-inch, 172-pound Carrick said on being chosen by the Hurricanes. In hearing his name called out, Carrick said it brought a sense a relief after all of the waiting and speculation he endured during his draft-eligible season. At the same time, it was a sense of accomplishment for all of the days in working his way up the hockey rank-and-file, which also included a one-year stint with the Stouffville Spirit junior A club two seasons ago. “I’m very excited to be drafted to Carolina,” Carrick said. “I’ve heard great things about the city (Raleigh, N.C.) and the organization. I’ve been working for this for a while now and it’s nice to have it pay off.” Amassing six goals and 13 assists in 68 regular season games with the Majors this past season, Carrick conceded he felt the butterflies when waiting around to see what fate had in store for him during the
annual player lottery. Ranked as the 44th top North American skater by the NHL’s Central Scouting entering the draft, Carrick had heard rumours from hockey sources it would be somewhere in around the third round or later when he would be picked. “I didn’t know what to expect going into the draft,” he said. “It was a pretty nervous feeling not knowing when your name is going to be called or who is going to call your name. My agent sat beside me and told me to be patient and stay calm and just enjoy the experience, which helped a lot.”
‘He’s also a devastating fighter, which is maybe a slight side benefit. He’s a tough kid, and we feel he was sort of an under-theradar guy.’
drafting Carrick, whose cousin Stouffville’s Bobby Hughes, was the Hurricanes’ fourth-round draft pick in the 2006 NHL entry draft. “He’s a tough, puck-moving defenceman. He’s going to fill out and get better. He’s also a devastating fighter, which is maybe a slight
side benefit. He’s a tough kid, and we feel he was sort of an under-theradar guy,” McDonald said on the Hurricanes’ website. Drake Caggiula, a teammate of Carrick’s with the Spirit, was rated for the draft by NHL Central Scouting but was not selected.

Upon talking with the Hurricanes’ brass when drafted, Carrick recalled they offered nothing but encouragement. “They didn’t say much to me about making the club, they just said ‘come to camp and make a good impression and have a good hard year with Mississauga and keep improving’,” he said. The younger brother of Sam Carrick, a captain this past season with the Brampton Battalion and a fifthround pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2010 NHL entry draft, Trevor won’t have to wait too long to make an impression with the Hurricanes’ personnel staff, as he is in Raleigh this week for the Canes rookie initiation camp.

BY MICHAEL HAYAKAWA
In the 20 years Jamie Hewitt has been coaching high school teams, a student athlete like Jon-Ross Newlands has been a rare commodity. Separating the Grade 11, 17-yearold Stouffville District Secondary School student from the rest of the pack was his dedication beyond the call of duty, said the Spartans’ head senior boys’ rugby and hockey coach. Such was the case earlier in the spring when the Spartans senior boys’ rugby team almost folded its tent before the start of the York Region Athletic Association tier one season. Under a directive taken by Newlands, the Spartans salvaged their season and almost retained their YRAA title only to lose to Bill Crothers (Unionville) in this year’s final. The salvage job caught the attention of the Spartans’ coaching staff who named Newlands this year’s Rehill Award recipient. The plaque, given out last week, is presented annually to the student demonstrating true sportsmanship and dedication to athletics. “I had no clue that I would be receiving it,” Newlands said. “He 100 per cent pulled the team together,” Hewitt said. “We had 10 to 12 guys out for a team practice and I said to them ‘this won’t work’. “(Newlands) called me aside and said ‘what can I do to save the team?’ “You know me, I don’t go chasing
kids (to come to practice and play). I said on a Tuesday ‘here’s what you have to do and you have until that Friday to get it together’. And he got the team together.
‘In the number of years I’ve been coaching high school sports, I’ve never seen one kid who single-handedly save the team.’ “In the number of years I’ve been coaching high school sports, I’ve never seen one kid who single-handedly saved the team.” Newlands displayed that same traits as a hooker with the rugby team and as a forward for the Spartans senior boys’ hockey team. “He always tries to make himself a better player in anything he does,” Hewitt said. “The main way he did this was with his commitment and dedication to his own fitness. He’s an extremely hard worker in the weight room and spends countless hours in there. “He also works extremely hard on his own cardiovascular fitness as he engages in long runs at school and home. He also competes in 10-kilometre runs throughout the spring and summer. In practice, you won’t find
a harder working player in any component, whether it was in the cardio sessions, physicality component of practice, or when we work on specific strategies and patterns of play.” Add good sportsmanship to the resume. “I saw this a number of times in both sports he plays,” Hewitt said. “As a key member of the senior boys’ rugby team, he was a player who was always in the middle of many rucks, mauls, scrums and lineouts — the gritty or greasy part of the game. That being said, he always helped an opponent up, complimented an opponent on a great play and always encouraged his teammates when times were tough.” Newlands was also awarded the Spartans’ Glenn Tarver Award, given to the player who showed dedication and commitment to rugby and as a result, the game become better for it. “I had a coach come up to me afterwards and emphasized how great of an achievement it was to receive both,” Newlands said. Newlands, who also plays rugby for the Ontario Junior Blues, will play seven aside for the club at the Ontario Summer Games next month in Toronto. But there’s still more to accomplish at the school level before he graduates next year. “We still have to win it all next year,” he said of his goal to help the rugby and hockey teams capture York Region titles.

‘Now we have to go home and keep working on the little details and hopefully we can both be on the podium at the Olympics. That would be amazing.’
Karen flying into London
Karen Cockburn will be entering the 2012 Summer Olympics in London next month on a high. The 31-year-old Stouffville resident bounced and sommersaulted her way to a second-place finish in the final World Cup event prior to the 2012 Summer Olympics in Arosa, Switzerland Saturday. Cockburn qualified fourth in the preliminaries, but Karen Cockburn, amped up her performance in the final to share a World three-time Olympian Cup podium for the first time with her Canadian teammate and King City resident Rosie MacLennan, who finished first. Cockburn finished with a score of 55.125 points while MacLennan’s winning tally was 55.605. Cockburn went into her final competition before the Olympics eager to prove the formidable Chinese team of Shanshan Huang and Li Dan was not unbeatable. “It’s kind of surreal, the Chinese didn’t fall and they did good routines, so we’re kind of shocked,” said Cockburn, winner of two silvers and a bronze in three Olympic Games. “It’s the best we good have ever hoped for at the last World Cup before the Olympics. Now we have to go home and keep working on the little details and hopefully we can both be on the podium at the Olympics. That would be amazing.” – Michael Hayakawa
