Staff Sgt. Dave Mitchell has seen plenty of distracted drivers in his day, but few worse than the motorist who was watching a movie on a DVD player underneath his car’s sun visor while he drove on Hwy. 7. He was recounting the tale yesterday at Whitchurch-Stouffville’s Community Safety Village, as MPPs and police gathered together to announce the new distracted driving laws intended to curb this kind of behaviour. As part of the new Bill 31, which was introduced by the Liberal government and will come into effect Sept. 1, drivers can be fined $1,000 (up from $280) and receive three demerit points should they be caught by police. It’s intended to be so restrictive that motorists put down their phones and end what Staff Sgt. Mitchell called a distracted driving “epidemic” on our roads. Even York Regional Police Chief Eric Jolliffe said his daily commute involves countless interactions with other drivers, where he’ll toot his horn and motion for the drivers to put down their phones and focus on the road. He noted that in York Region, alone, there have been 4,100 tickets for distracted driving this year See BIGGER, page 22.

J

ack Lynch always looked up to Terry Fox and admired what he did. Little did the grade-schooler know he would have his own battle with cancer and the annual Terry Fox Run they did as a family, would take on new meaning. This year’s Terry Fox Run takes place Sept. 20. In November 2011, at the age of six, Jack was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). It is a cancer of the bone marrow. It started with a couple of bouts of hip pain. Then one night the pain became intolerable and five days later, Meagan and her husband Paul had to figure out how to explain to their rambunctious hockey-loving son he had leukemia. “You get called into a room with a panel of doctors and specialists; it’s a surreal moment. You don’t really think it’s happening,” Meagan recalled. But they knew Jack would be strong and determined to fight this. “I had no clue what cancer was,” Jack, 10, recently told The Sun-Tribune. Meagan and Paul utilized an analogy most little boys could relate to — soldiers. “There’s a battle going on, he was going to need some medicine. He wasn’t going to feel well for awhile, it was the reinforcements coming in,” Meagan recounted to the SunTribune of what they told Jack almost four years ago. During one of their initial visits with the oncologist, they were being warned about the risk of infection. The doctor also noted in all her years practising, only one patient wasn’t re-admitted during their course of treatment because of infection. Meagan recalled how Jack whispered to his dad: “I’m going to be the second one.” And he was. Jack underwent intense treatment at Southlake Regional Health Centre for eight months and never missed a hockey practise or game. Some of his teammates never even knew he was sick, according to Meagan. Despite some lingering hip pain, Jack participated in his first Stouffville Terry Fox Run in 2012. He walked the 5K route with his grandmother and cousins. “We had a lot of time to talk about stuff,” he said. In 2013, the pain wasn’t as bad, so Jack ran the 5K with his best friend and sister Claire. He also got to meet Terry’s brother Fred. Last year, Jack met Terry’s father Rolly and he once again ran the 5K. Jack also takes part in his school’s annual Terry Fox Run. He goes to Glad Park.

family event Without his knowing, in 2012 all of the students in Jack’s class wrote his name on their shirt where it says “I’m running for”. They continue to do it annually. “I like it a lot because it helps me keep going. It just makes me feel like I didn’t get the cancer; I’m just like all the other kids,” Jack said. Jack officially finished his cancer treatment this past January. Terry did and continues to provide inspiration to Jack. “Even when his leg was hurting a lot he just kept on going. He helped me a lot to remember what he did. It kept me going if some part of my body was hurting,” he said. Terry Fox’s journey across Canada was a Marathon of Hope. “I think hope goes a long way,” said Sandy Schell Ken-

nedy, chairperson of the Stouffville event. This year’s theme builds on that concept —Terry Had a Dream as Big as our Country. “He was a dreamer. He was an ordinary guy, but he did something extra ordinary,” Schell Kennedy said. Since 1982, Whitchurch-Stouffville has raised $1.593 million for cancer research through the Terry Fox Run. Although it’s called a run, it’s not a race. “I really love that the Terry Fox Run is for all abilities,” Meagan said, noting she and then her husband and now with their children, have been long-time participants. “It’s a real community event.” The Lynch family — Meagan, Paul, Jack, Claire, 8, Graden, 6, and Ian, 4 — will all participate this year. Meagan is also leading the warm up. You can walk, run, ride or rollerblade the 2, 5 or 10 km routes. The Stouffville event had 148 participants and raised $8,400 in its first year. In 2014, 1,500 people came out and raised more than $122,000 with the schools adding another $26,000. “I don’t always look at the dollars. I’m a firm believer it’s

about people,” Schell Kennedy said. And the people have spoken, when it comes to the route. The trails have been eliminated this year because they became too narrow and crowded for all the participants, according to Schell Kennedy.

Schell kennedy leaving The event still starts and ends at the WhitchurchStouffville Leisure Centre/Public Library. This year will be bittersweet for Schell Kennedy. It is her last year at the helm of the local event. She is retiring and moving north. “Twenty six years has come and gone and it’s time to look for fresh blood and new ideas,” she said. “It’s not a bad thing. I’ll be handing it off with full confidence.” The Stouffville Terry Fox Run takes place Sept. 20. It starts at 1 p.m. For more information on the Stouffville Terry Fox Run, go to www.facebook.com/StouffvilleTerryFox. For route information go to www.stouffvilleterryfoxrunmap.com.

Earlier start time for growing school population Students at Stouffville District Secondary School will have to set their alarms 10 minutes earlier come September. In an effort to accommodate its growing student population, classes will begin at 9:10 a.m. instead of 9:20 a.m. as of the new school year. The Hoover Park Drive school has a capacity of 1,353 students and enrolment is expected to be 1,291 in September, according to Lauren Peddle, communications specialist for the York Region District School Board. School will also let out 11 minutes later – 3:46 p.m. instead of 3:35 p.m. The school is also moving from four periods with a common lunch to five period and three lunches.

more periods, lunch hours “The move to five periods also allows us to maximize classroom use to accommodate the varied course selection choices by our students,” Reid Wilshire, the school’s principal stated in a notice about the changes on the school’s website. The change is also being made because the school’s cafeteria is not large enough to support all of the students at once. “This creates concerns around student safety in the cafeteria and the rest of the school due to overcrowding. Wait time for lunch orders through our cafeteria service becomes a challenge, as well,” according to Wilshire. School officials will try to keep period three lunch for Grade 9 students “to keep them congregated as they adjust to their new high school,” Wilshire wrote.

LETTER OF THE WEEK

We all need a little more Smiley in our lives, eh

Drivers, get ready for school

A

s community gatherings go, it was priceless. At the same time, it was most understated and it didn’t cost a cent to produce. If you walked briskly through Stouffville Memorial Park last Thursday afternoon, ambling between Main Street and the library/fitness centre, you may have missed it. That’s a shame. Despite appearances to the contrary, that was no ordinary dog and owner camped out at the picnic shelter. That was Smiley the blind therapy dog and Internet sensation hosting a meet-andgreet with his owner Joanne George of Musselman’s Lake. You’ve heard of Smiley. He’s the Drake, Taylor Swift and LeBron James of the canine community. He has had coverage from media outlets across the U.S. — CBS News, CNN, Fox, Inside Edition, BuzzFeed and the Washington Post. On the CBS News website alone, Smiley’s story had been shared more 190,000 times earlier this year. All for just being Smiley. Born blind, he was far from the pick of the litter. But it’s almost biblical the way the St. John’s Ambulance therapy dog — with no small assist from George — has used his gentle demeanour and permanent smile to charm everyone he meets, from the kids learning to read at the library and in local schools to the elderly in our nursing homes. The tandem received a York Region Character Community award this year. Smiley was back at it again last week, accepting donations of school supplies — backpacks, binders, paper, pens/pencils etc. A van full plus $145 in cash given to the Whitchurch-Stouffville Food Bank for distribution. “All kids want and need to have new stuff for school

Off The Top with Jim Mason and we all know how expensive it can be,” George wrote on Facebook. The upshot? Our community is stronger than it was a week ago. People connected. Information was shared. Smiles were produced. A bunch of kids will proudly go back to school next month with hip new plaid or movieinspired backpacks packed with pencils, crayons and folders. A bunch of people also got to meet Stouffville’s biggest celebrity — sorry Karen Cockburn and Justin Altmann — for the first time. They marvelled at his ability to follow direction and remain so chilled while little kids and big ones, like this guy, patted his head and checked out his St. John’s bandana. More calming than sipping herbal tea while listening to the music of the ocean. So much so that I’m inviting our most famous four-legged citizen to spend as much time as he wants under and around my desk. (I won’t tell the poodle at home.) You can even bring that sharp monogrammed water bowl they gave you in New York City when you appeared on The Meredith Viera Show last spring, pal. We all need a little Smiley. Jim Mason is editor of The Sun-Tribune. Follow him on Twitter @stouffeditor

Well, after another long, cold winter, Mother Nature has blessed us with a nice summer for a change. Hope everyone is enjoying it. As in past years, the school routes have been handed out, dry runs are happening right now and that can only mean one thing, school starts back up on Sept. 8 and with that the roads will be filled again with bright yellow buses and smiling students faces and some not so smiley. Once again, I am reminding all of our drivers out there to watch for and be aware of the kids and buses at the pick-up and drop-off locations. Please remember drivers and cyclists must stop for a school bus when its red warning lights are activated and the stop arm out, whether students cross a road or not. Failure to do so could result in a hefty fine or worse — a student being hit. York Regional Police will continue with the local road blitz on the bus routes again this fall.

6290 Main St. Stouffville, ON. L4A 1G7 www.yorkregion.com

GET CONNECTED SEND YOUR LETTER: Email your comments and/or suggestions to jmason@yrmg.com Also, please be mindful of the school loading and unloading zones. Cars and trucks are not allowed in those zones during the posted times. The kids can dart around a bus at anytime, making it difficult for the buses to get into the loops. And let’s stay off of those phones while we drive. Also, please watch out for our numerous crossing guards and stop for them as they cross our kids. Have a safe school year, everyone, and let’s hope El Nino forgets where Stouffville is this coming winter.

Where the federal money was spent Re: Where has all the federal grant money gone, letter to the editor by Wilf Morley, Aug. 13. When MP Paul Calandra recently announced a $70,000 grant towards renovating 6240 Main St. for the 55+ Club, he also noted that since he was elected in 2008, the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville has received $12 million from the federal government. In reality, over the past seven years, the municipality and local organizations have received a combined $13,909,049 from various federal government agencies. The information was provided to The SunTribune by Calandra’s office. It was also noted this was not an exhaustive list. The first money — $1,085,518 — came in June 2009 from the Building Canada Fund. It was for the construction of the WhitchurchStouffville Museum’s visitor’s centre. That same day, the municipality also received $650,000 from the Infrastructure Stimulus Fund for the reconstruction of McCowan Road between Vandorf and Aurora roads. Later that month, the town received three grants from Recreation Infrastructure Canada for: the rehabilitation of Memorial Park’s softball diamond ($275,000), rehabilitation of the Stouffville Sports Fields ($84,333) and improvements to the Stouffville Arena ($386,582). Between 2010 and 2014 the federal gas tax brought $2,992,653 into the municipality for various projects and from 2014 through to 2018, Whitchurch-Stouffville is expected to receive another $5,665,557. In 2010, CBM Canada received $1,850,000

for international development projects. From 2011 to 2012, WhiStle Radio was awarded $24,873 for its Golden Years’ radio show. It came from the New Horizons for Seniors fund. In 2013/2014 the Lemonville United Church received $25,000 from the same fund for accessibility renovations, in particular the installation of an elevator. In 2012, the town was awarded $371,250 from the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund to resurface the McConnellFranklin Track beside the Stouffville Arena, as well as for improvements to the park’s tennis courts. Six local businesses — BizZone, Global EMC, MakePlain Corp., Varilume Lighting and Thumbprint Solutions — received a combined $218,324 between 2012 and 2015 via the National Research Council. The money was to be used for scientific research and innovation projects. BizZone also received a grant of $198,134 in 2014 from the Economic Prosperity – Status of Women Canada Fund for an economic prosperity initiative supporting female entrepreneurs. Between 2013 and 2015, via the Celebrate Canada Fund, the Preston Lake Canada Day Celebration received $2,400. The date is not noted, but through the Veterans Affairs Canada Community War Memorial Program, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 459 was awarded $9,425 for the new cenotaph.The legion moved from Ninth Line to Mostar Street in 2011. – Sandra Bolan


WEEKEND BACON BLT

Thomas here... We’re doing BLT Week at the store this weekend in a big way. Bacon. Lettuce. Tomato. (And Mayonnaise too I guess…) Doesn’t get simpler and tastier than that. I fondly remember being up north at my friend’s cottage in Georgian Bay last summer and packing for a picnic on a tiny island out on the rocks. With nothing more than a couple tomatoes, a head of lettuce, leftover bacon, a jar of mayo, a loaf of rye and an unreasonable amount of wine we made a lunch that I’ll never forget. Tasting the saltiness of the bacon, the juiciness of the tomatoes, sitting by the water on a perfect summer day. With food, as in life, it’s the simple things that make all the difference…

WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THE

When invited to a friend’s house for dinner or on a cottage weekend, I like to bring a token of appreciation. A more conventional man might bring a bottle of pinot or a dessert; I however usually bring a pound of VG bacon, and though it sounds odd, it has been nothing but well received. What sets our bacon apart from that pre-packaged swill at the supermarket? First off, we dry-cure our bacon, the old school way. This process ensures that only the fat renders when you cook it, all other moisture (and flavor) stays in the meat. We also slice our bacon thick so it doesn’t shrivel up in the pan. So come grab a sheet this week when it’s on special, or invite me over for dinner and I’ll OFF /LB bring some. Reg: $8.95/lb

Undies flapping in the breeze with celebration

M

y wife’s envious. Almost daily she looks up and down our street and views amazing projects other wives’ husbands have accomplished. Then she looks at me and sees a dupe who can’t replace a light bulb, weed a garden or make a bed. All these admitted inabilities and yet she still expected me to somehow erect a backyard clothesline that’s been on her honey-do list since September. Oh the self-confessed aguish of her falling victim to such an unskilled work mate. Although now out-of-season to hang clothing outside at minus 15 C, my mother did it and so undoubtedly did my grandmother. They’d haul in garments so rigidly stiff one would think the would-be wearers were still inside. But smelling a whole lot better. Ah yes, one has to agree, nothing beats shirts and socks; brassieres and bloomers dried in the great outdoors. Failures aside, there’s more to

Roaming Around with Jim Thomas consider than incompetence when erecting one of these elongated contraptions. First, of course, is price. Stouffville’s Canadian Tire has a huge number of diverse models on display, including now-common umbrella styles. The cost ranges from $14.79 to $159.99. They also come in various lengths and colours. I purchased a 250-footer minus two rollers and two posts. These were leftovers from an earlier ordeal. I requested yellow,

my wife’s favourite hue but the choice was somewhat limited. I was forced to select silver. “Does the purchase include installation?” I asked the clerk. “Afraid not,” she replied with a smile. “You’re on your own.” Woe was me! However, prior to embarking on my backyard endeavour, I had to learn if, in this day and age, clotheslines are actually legal. I can recall that, in some Canadian provinces and U.S. states, the very thought of panties and undies flapping in the breeze caused near riots in many up-end neighbourhoods. But, I discovered, storms of protest in Ontario were officially quashed several years ago, thanks to a proclamation issued by former premier Dalton McGuinty. “I want parents to have the choice to use the sun and the wind to dry their clothes — for free,” said McGuinty. With this declaration, my final chance for respite went out the window. Still, wife Jean, always conscious of other people’s feelings, felt it only fair to contact

neighbors and obtain approval of our project. None of those approached were opposed. While I’m not suggesting it could happen in law-abiding Stouffville, there are, in some towns, prowlers by night who get their kicks out of preying on luckless clotheslines and escaping with all they can carry. Chances of arrest are extremely slim since no one’s the wiser ’til morning. By then, the culprits are usually long gone. There’s also an annoying noise-level that must be considered. Unless the pulleys are regularly oiled, squeaks and squawks of taking in and taking out can awaken everyone on the block. To keep the peace, good public relations is extremely important. On the positive side, a smooth operating clothesline represents a sizeable money-saver. Up to $30 a year if dryer-use is reduced by 25 percent. That’s a reduction worth considering. And we have. A clothesline often tells a story — a newborn, (diapers); a profession, (uniforms); hotel tow-

els, (vacations) and slobber bibs, (pets). It can also point to a family’s desire for cleanliness. Washings hung thrice weekly have seemingly replaced the once-popular Monday morning routine. However, the worst occurred last — the actual installation. Since our compact roll of wire contained no understandable directions, I, plus two assistants, wife Jean and son Barry, had to undertake the task through trial and error, a laborious trial and multiple errors. The grand finale of it all, both ends came together with a 24 inches overlap. Good reason for much celebration. I, along with significant verbal advice, had finally exceeded all expectations. Although the heavily loaded clothesline has a huge sag in the centre, this problem can easily be corrected with the overdue removal of my winter woollies. Jim Thomas is a Stouffville resident who has written for area newspapers for more than 60 years.


Doctors will no longer have to sign a letter stating a seriously ill family member will likely die within six months in order for another family member to receive employment insurance while caring for the ill person, if the Liberal government is elected this October. The announcement was made in Markham-Stouffville federal Liberal candidate Dr. Jane Philpott’s Main Street Stouffville office last Thursday. It echoed what Liberal leader Justin Trudeau announced earlier in the day while out in B.C., she said. “I see, on a regular basis, almost a daily basis, how families are affected when a loved one faces serious illness,” Philpott told the gathered media, while flanked by area Liberal candidates Majid Jowhari (Richmond Hill), Bang-Gu Jiang (Markham-Unionville), John McCallum (Markham-Thornhill) and Leona Alleslev (Aurora-Oak RidgesRichmond Hill). “Let me tell you, as a doctor, it’s pretty hard to predict who’s at risk like that and people who are facing serious illness aren’t necessarily facing imminent death,” she said. McCallum went further and called the current request of a doctor’s letter stating the person will likely die within six months, as “morbid and ghoulish and unpleasant.” The current program also requires family caregivers to take their six months off all at once. That criteria will also be eliminated and caregivers will be able to take time off as needed under the Liberals’ Employment Insurance Compassionate Care program. The program will cost approximately $190 million annually. Each person is eligible for just over $500 per week or $13,624 a year, according to Philpott. This plan requires no increase to Employment Insurance premiums by either the employer or employee, according to Alleslev. The election is Oct. 19.

The dance of life At a g e 4 4 , S t e p h a n i e H u tc h i s o n ’ s c a r e e r w i t h T h e Na t o n a l B a l l e t o f Ca n a d a i s n o t o v e r BY SANDRA BOLAN

thletes north of 30, and in particular 35, are often described as old, ancient, over the hill, semi-retired and in the sunset of their career. To be 44 and still dancing, in pointe shoes, is almost unheard of. For Stephanie Hutchison, being a professional dancer in her 40s is a combination of good genes and training. The National Ballet of Canada recently promoted the former Stouffville resident to principal character artist. She spent 12 years as the dance company’s first soloist. “The position allows me to slowly give up the really hard physical aspects of dancing,” Hutchinson said. “I play everybody’s mother” and roles with silent acting skills, along with ones that require “a certain maturity,” she said. Like most little girls, Hutchison put on her first tutu and pink ballet slippers at age five for Saturday class. Candy Turner of Richmond Hill’s Candy Turner School of Dance recognized her natural talent and she started taking classes twice a week. Then Turner suggested she go pro.

For many female athletes, having a baby can often mean the end of a career or one where the body just doesn’t do what it once did. Not so for Hutchison. Hutchison’s father, Bill, investigated what was involved with becoming a professional ballet dancer and at nine, she auditioned for the National Ballet of Canada School in Toronto and was accepted. “Others had ballet moms, I had a ballet dad,” Hutchison said, adding her late father, a championship hockey coach in Stouffville, was her “biggest fan”. She also has a twin brother — Steve, who is a high school teacher — and sister Lindsey works in fundraising. Their mother, Linda, lives in Stouffville. The long hours spent in the studio, as well as in the classroom were hard, but only for a brief time in high school did Hutchison question whether she wanted to keep pursuing ballet or give it up. “Probably like most teenagers, you go through a lot of changes,” she said. “You never really know you’re going to make it until you get a job.” Her first professional role was in 1991 as the Paper Ballerina in the Tin Solider. It was filmed for CBC. If things didn’t work out, Hutchison was likely headed to law school. But she did get a professional gig. However, it was not at the National Ballet of Canada as she hoped, which Hutchison admitted was disappointing. Instead, the now-defunct Ottawa Ballet hired her. She lived on six- and eight-month-long contracts

while also picking up side jobs as a lifeguard and receptionist, which she said is pretty normal for contract dancers. After four years, Hutchison joined Ballet BC, which had a “more interesting repertoire” and longer season. Hutchison made her way to the National Ballet of Canada’s corp de ballet in 1997. She was promoted to first soloist in 2003. During the past 26 years, there have been a lot of ballets, so many, Hutchison can’t pick just one favourite. But there are a few that stand out. Among her favourites is the Queen of Wilis in Giselle; the Queen of Hearts in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, along with her roles in Rubies and The Man in Black. Hutchison has never played Juliet, instead Lady Capulet. She said she’s made peace with not getting the big roles. “My longevity made up for roles I did not get,” she said. Seven years ago, Hutchison added a new role to her resume — mom. For many female athletes, having a baby can often mean the end of a career or one where the body just doesn’t do what it once did. Not so for Hutchison. She said she bounced back quite quickly after having Charlotte and ended up actually recovering better from the stresses of daily training, post-baby. Charlotte has performed in two Nutcrackers with her mom. She played a little lamb. “That’s really fun; we can share an experience like that on stage,” she said. As for following in her mother’s pointe shoes, that has yet to be determined. Right now, Charlotte loves being active and does everything and anything. “She’ll let me know what interests her going forward,” Hutchison said. Hutchison and the rest of the ballet company are back at work in rehearsals for The Winter’s Tale, which is brand new to the company. They then stage Romeo and Juliet and The Nutcracker. The National Ballet of Canada performs in Toronto’s Four Seasons for Performing Arts.

NOT YOUR 9 to 5 but ... Believe it or not, being a ballet dancer is somewhat of a 9 to 5 job, while in rehearsals. In prepping for a show, Hutchison spends six to eight weeks rehearsing 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Every day starts with a ballet class, with the rest of the day spent learning and rehearsing the choreography. The company does 90 shows a year. When in show mode they work five-and-a-half days a week 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. with a dinner break. They get six weeks off every year. The biggest misconception? They don’t eat. Some dancers do diet excessively, but not Hutchison. Like most of us of a certain age, she needs to keep her junk food and high fat food intake in check in order to maintain her dancer’s physique.

Province provides age-friendly funding in York Region On Aug. 9, I hosted my eighth annual Community Barbecue at the Markham Museum. As in previous years, it featured community booths from local organizations such as, the Markham Public Library and the Markham Arts Council. There was entertainment by very talented performers. Lisa LoMagno, a volunteer in my constituency office, started the barbecue off by singing our national anthem. Other performers included Carol C Dance, Stouffville Academy of Music and Dance, the Federation of Chinese Canadians in Markham, L’Arche

MPP Helena Jaczek Oak Ridges-Markham Daybreak’s The Spirit Movers, Phoenix Arts Academy and the Lindance Cultural Communication.

A big thank you goes out to the wonderful Allan Bell, from the Markham Stouffville Hospital Foundation, for being MC, as well as all of our volunteers who helped make this year’s event a great success. We couldn’t have done it without you. On Aug. 11, I was in WhitchurchStouffville at a WS YOU 177 event announcing a $35,000 grant from the Ontario government to study age-friendly community planning. With this funding, WS YOU 177 will be utilizing the World Health Organization’s eight dimensions for age-friendly communities — public

buildings, housing, transportation, community support, civic participation, communication, social participation as well as social inclusion and will undertake a communitywide consultation to better understand the needs of local seniors. On Aug. 17, I was happy to announce that our government is providing $42,737 to the Active Seniors – Living Legacy Program through the Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund. This investment will deliver fitness classes, healthy lifestyle workshops and travel outings to seniors in the

Township of King. Enabling people in communities across Ontario to lead healthy, active lives is part of the government’s plan. Another investment our government recently made is $107,657 for infrastructure upgrades to Markham Stouffville Hospital. This will ensure residents continue to receive high quality care in a high quality facility. I can’t believe summer has almost come to an end. I hope you have all enjoyed it as much as I have.

Nick Foti (left) and Matt Giunta meet fans at Boston Pizza in Stouffville last week.

Amazing Racers on fans’ radar By Sandra Bolan

sbolan@yrmg.com

So what’s it like being overnight TV stars? Pretty good if you ask Nick Foti and Matt Giunta. The Amazing Race Canada competitors and about 60 friends, family members and fans gathered at Stouffville’s Boston Pizza to watch the latest episode last week. The pair, who admits they like to fly under the radar, got their first taste of stardom at the Wayhome concert featuring Neil Young last month. They were compped tickets and somehow in a sea of thousands of people, fans of the two were able to pick them out. “We’re very distinct when we’re together,” Foti joked with The Sun-Tribune during the viewing party. Other perks include tickets to Argos’ games and the upcoming WWE Live event next month in Toronto. Part of why the duo wanted to go on the show was not only for the prizes, but to demystify some of the stereotypes people have about wrestlers. “We’re normal people who have a really weird hobby like wrestling, not bowling,” Foti said.

By day Newmarket’s Foti, 35, is a Grade 6 teacher in Richmond Hill and Stouffville’s Giunta, 33, is a real estate agent. One fan who likes that they are just ordinary guys is Stouffville’s Tanya Whynot, who went to the viewing party to meet the guys and get a T-shirt autographed. She succeeded. “These guys are just nice guys and they play nice, they’re comical … plays decent to win it,” she said. Their fan base on social media has grown a bit, but their nationwide exposure has really helped their wrestling. They already made a name for themselves on the east coast, according to Foti, but not so much out west. Until now. Closer to home, the pair, wrestling under the tag team of The Flatliners, will take on former ECW, TNA and WWE tag team champs The Dudley Boyz/Team 3D in Destiny World Wrestling’s Summer Heat event Sunday in Mississauga. Foti and Giunta made it through last week’s episode, much to the enjoyment of their fans, finishing fifth. For the results from last night’s show, go to yorkregion.com

The Whitchurch-Stouffville Chamber of Commerce is rebranding and that includes changing its name to the Stouffville Chamber of Commerce. “Our mission is to attract, promote and improve trade and commerce for the Whitchurch-Stouffville community. Practically speaking, our current membership and potential membership all identify as Stouffville. We did not want to get confused with organizations using the stylized WS, so it was more efficient to simply use Stouffville as our brand identifier,” Harry Renaud, executive director of the chamber told The Sun-Tribune via email. As part of its “refreshed image”, the chamber also has a brand new logo and tag line. An updated website is also in the works. It will be unveiled Sept. 1 at a new URL www. stouffvillechamber.ca “Stouffville’s business community is growing rapidly and the chamber needs to expand and better communicate its offering to meet the needs of local business and achieve its objective of supporting trade and

NATALIE MACMASTER & DONNELL LEAHY: FAMILY, FIDDLES & BEING THE BEST YOU CAN BE by DUNCAN FLETCHER To take a step into the home of Canadian Celtic music duo Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy is to step into the heart of the music itself. Fiddles, piano, bag pipe chanters, drums and voice fill every room as the younger Leahy-MacMasters pick up the tools of their parents trade and begin to forge their own legacy. In fact they are well on their way. The younger clan – now numbering six, from 16 months to 9 years of age, are already a fixture in the rollicking, foot-stomping, step-dancing, down-home Ceilidhs that people have come to expect of Leahy-MacMaster shows. That seems to be a natural progression to anyone acquainted with the legacies of Leahy and MacMaster both of whom have music and family at the heart of what they do. But for MacMaster, the “natural talent” everyone seems to attribute to her and her family is not nature’s magic, but rather the result of old-fashion practice and dedication. With a laugh, she explains, “everyone says ‘oh they must come out playing.’ Well, no they don’t” she corrects, adding that a well-placed push is often in order. “You just shove a fiddle in their hand,” she begins. Once they gain some ability, “they extract their own enjoyment” that, in turn, motivates them to go further on their own – even in the face of a competing nature to go out and play instead. What does seems natural for the clan is the inclination to promote a collaborative environment that focuses on making the best music possible -- the kind of environment that both Leahy and MacMaster come from.

Before they joined forces, both MacMaster and Leahy were already Celtic music royalty in their own right. MacMaster, the Cape Breton Girl – a prodigy of sorts herself, learned from and inspired by masters like her uncle, Cape Breton legend Buddy MacMaster and others. She began performing as young girl in community centres across Nova Scotia, beginning her recorded career at 16. Embraced for her musical prowess, boundless energy and love of her home, she not only helped to bring the “Cape Breton sound” to millions but also sought out and incorporated contemporary and international influences creating a sound and audience all her own. Appearances on high profile television shows like Good Morning America, Conan O’Brien and even Sesame Street only heightened her appeal. Similarly Donnell Leahy, the elder sibling in the award-winning Leahy family, came to the realization early that he was meant to play. Having a fiddle put in his hand at the tender age of two by his fiddling parents, he says, “I knew right away. I wanted to be like my dad and play like my dad.” That meant being very good, and he was. He and his siblings brought their Ontario blend of traditional and contemporary fiddle music to international acclaim. With the Leahy trademark, thousand-notes-a-minute pace and Donnell’s technical mastery, they broke out big with their 1996 album, Leahy. Anchored by the incendiary Call of the Dance single and video, they wowed a whole generation of fans that had no idea they liked the fiddle. They went from filling halls on their own, to playing stadiums backing up Shania Twain for almost two years. Along the way, they continued to pick up influences that show in their music today. That natural, collaborative tendency is found in the couple’s long-awaited, new album, One – their first together. Released earlier this year, it encompasses styles from across the world, but always imbued with the Ontario and Cape Breton “accents” that each has become famous for. “Making this record is something people always expected,” relates Leahy. “We always expected it, but it was always delayed because it was never the priority.” “But when it did happen,” adds MacMaster “it was a monumental big deal.” “I’m a big fan of Natalie and she’s a big fan of mine,” says Leahy. “So we’re also cheerleaders for each other. It’s a great environment, a great spirit to work in.” The delay also allowed some big name talent to get on board in the form of famed, Juno award-winning rock producer Bob Ezrin who is also a fan. Introduced by Scottish-Canadian country star Johnny Reid, Leahy relates that far from forcing his rock side on the project Ezrin turned out to be a true collaborator who “broadened” and “affected” the music but did not change it. Any rock influences, like the addition of some electric guitar in parts, Leahy says is his doing. He relates how Ezrin reacted. “He shook his head and started laughing and said ‘I love it, but they’re going to blame me for this.” Life doesn’t promise to become any less busy for the duo, who bring their multi-media show to the Flato Markham Theatre, where they will perform at the 30th Anniversary Season Gala on October 17 with special guest Heather Rankin. Their appearance also sets the stage for a number of other high profile Canadian and international performers that also include a few other Celtic inspired evenings including Leahy: The Next Generation – a performance by Donnell’s brother, Doug, and his talented family on December 19, as well as Canadian Irish music icons, the Irish Rovers on November 5 and Celtic Nights – a spectacular presentation of Irish music, dance and art from Ireland’s most talented performers, March 12. MacMaster and Leahy, will also receive one of the first Markham Performance Awards, an annual presentation to those who have contributed to the performing arts in that city. September 25 will also see them starring in Canada’s Walk of Fame celebrations headlining a Massey Hall show, which MacMaster describes as a career highlight, knowing that once again they have the opportunity to make great music and be the best they can be. If they can do that, concludes Leahy, “everything else will look after itself.” Naturally.

Platinum Blonde on having fun and never growing up by DUNCAN FLETCHER For those who remember the 80s first hand, it’s hard to have memories that don’t include a soundtrack with Platinum Blonde hits. From the searing guitar intro of Doesn’t Really Matter on the hit-laden 1983 Standing in the Dark album, to the opening harmony of Crying Over You and the catchy Situation Critical from 1985’s Alien Shores, they were everywhere. It was quite a ride for the young trio of singer-bassist Mark Holmes, guitarist Sergio Galli and drummer Chris Steffler, who rocketed out of the Toronto club scene to international prominence. The addition of a fourth member, Scottish ex-pat Kenny MacLean in 1985, did nothing to slow their rising star. Holmes credits MTV, Much Music and other video programs for much of their sudden fame, offering tongue-in-cheek, that “a whole generation of teenagers got to see us in tight trousers.” Mass media video allowed a larger, closer, more intense connection with fans who could not only hear their songs, but experience their energy, flashy style and swagger.

The band ultimately went separate ways in 1990. But with Electronic superstars Crystal Castles backed by The Cure’s Robert Smith released a hugely popular version of Not in Love in 2010, a new generation of fans began to clamour for their unique sound. But Holmes steadfastly refused to rely on past laurels, and was determined to bring new material to the table. While conceding they still play their hits in concert, he says, “I’m not into glorifying the past. It’s not where we’re at.” The newer material includes the 2012 release Now & Never that turned out to be a huge success with hits like Beautiful and Valentine becoming concert staples that are as embraced as fully as the old hits – especially by younger fans, who Holmes notes comprise the bulk of modern day Platinum Blonde concert attendees. Fans old and new can look forward to a new album coming this fall, tentatively titled, Symphony Orchestra, that Holmes promises will be a relevant expression of what Platinum Blonde

was and is – a band that has always embraced creative energy, new sounds and technology. “Once you make the fatal mistake of growing up, your art is over,” says Holmes. “But we’re still doing relevant things and I’m still having fun.” Luckily fans don’t have to wait for the new album to get a sneak peek of the new material and hear the hits as Platinum Blonde rocks the Flato Markham Theatre, Fri. Sept. 25th. Get tickets at the theatre box office or www.markhamtheatre.ca

and 2,700 for careless driving. In 2012, Ontario saw 80 deaths resulting from distracted driving. “People are not getting the message and if it requires increased fines for people to think twice, then so be it,” he said. “Our ultimate mandate is to protect the community from harm, whether it be crime or road safety.

ing stunt racing rules in 2010. “People were angry at the rules that said if you’re 50 kilometres over the speed limit, we’ll take your car for a week,” he said, noting he heard many of them speak on talk radio. “But then we saw 350 fewer fatalities on our roads year over year. You can’t argue with that.” Patterson added that he also believes the legislation will bring the severity of the event in line with the judicial consequences. “I was at an international event a few years ago and they couldn’t believe we (Ontario) didn’t have demerit points for distracted driving already,” he added. “After all, the consequences of distracted driving are crashes and fatalities.” Transportation Minister and Vaughan MPP Steven Del Duca congratulated lawmakers on passing the bill unanimously and said it was about time we recognized the risks inherent to distracted driving. He added he has two daughters, one age eight and one four, and he hopes they will be safer as a result. Del Duca further noted the rules are justified considering distracted driving is now as big a problem in this province as impaired driving. The law will also include other components, including “move over” legislation that forces drivers to give cyclists one metre worth of space where possible and asks that drivers change lanes or slow down when emergency vehicles and, now, tow trucks, are working on the side of our roadways. Fines and demerit points will also be introduced for motorists that “door” cyclists. Finally, the law also stipulates school buses are the only vehicles allowed to be coloured a particular shade of yellow. The Community Safety Village, in Bruce’s Mill Conservation Area, was selected as the site of the conference because of its unique message of safety, which has witnessed more than 500,000 students learn about road and community safety. Chief Jolliffe said the Stouffville Road site is privately funded and allows police to engage with children about safety in a safe and unique setting.

Yanks off to provincials

Celebration of the

The Stouffville Yankees minor bantams finished the York Simcoe Baseball Association regular season in sixth place in the 13-team loop. But when the association conducted its championship double knockout tournament, the Yankees remained the last team standing, after they captured the title that concluded with a resounding 12-2 mercy-shortened victory over the top-seeded Newmarket Hawks in Richmond Hill. With the win, the Yankees also punched their ticket to the Ontario Baseball Association championships in Brantford during the Labour Day weekend. After blanking the Hawks in the top of the first, the Yanks’ bats went to work in their half when Peter Karanopoulos led off with a single and stole two bases. He scored the game’s first run on a single by Eric Murchison. What might have been the pivotal point in the game transpired in the fourth inning when the Hawks got a lead-off single and were about to send the heart of their order to the plate. But Yankees’ starting pitcher Dylan McDonald induced the next Hawks’ batter to ground into a double play. After MacDonald yielded a single to the following hitter, catcher Blake Randorf ended the inning by making a perfect throw to catch the base runner attempting to steal. The Yankees blew the game wide open, highlighted by a bases loaded double from

Trevor Randorf that drove in three runs. Yankees head coach George Karanopoulos, along with third base coach Evan McDonald, felt the key to his club’s success stemmed from its resolve. “We had a positive team chemistry and a never-give-up attitude,” Karanopoulos said. The Yankees opened the tournament with a 14-7 loss to the Barrie Red Sox. With their season on the line after their first loss, the Yankees then faced the Markham Mariners, who also lost their first game. Trailing 4-0 after two innings and the game temporarily suspended due to lightning, the Yankees took advantage of the break to regroup when Drew Ferris and Mike Panadra smashed back-to-back triples. That was followed by base hits from Liam Mackie, Jessie Austin and McDonald to set the stage for Cole Burrows, who promptly belted a double to drive in three runs. The Yankees ended up scoring nine unanswered runs on seven hits. Supported by solid relief pitching from Tommy Schoenith, the Yankees prevailed 16-4 in a mercy-shortened four-inning tilt. Next, Cole Burtch retired seven out of 15 Richmond Hill batters he faced. Coupled with two double plays from the defence, the Yankees cruised to a 14-0 mercy-shortened, fiveinning victory and berth in the final against Newmarket. – Michael Hayakawa

The Stouffville Spirit’s starting roster for the 2015-16 Ontario Junior Hockey League regular season is slowly but surely being formulated. With some 30 hopefuls on the Stouffville Arena ice during the club’s main training camp that commenced last week, Spirit coowner and general manager Kenny Burrows unveiled three players he signed on the dotted line. They include defencemen Kyle Linney, 17, and Justin Mahabir, 17, and forward Jack Varga, 17. Linney and Varga toiled last season with the York Simcoe Express AAA major midgets. Mahabir comes from a successful program after being part of the Telus Cup-winning Young Nats AAA major midgets last season. Linney and Mahabir bring a physical presence to Stouffville. “They’re both big strong kids who are over six feet tall and they played well in minor hockey,” Burrows said. Smallish in stature at around five-foot, eight inches, Varga’s assets are being elusive but not afraid of the rough going.

ohl, ushl camps “He is small, but he’s speedy, tough and strong,” cited Burrows. On the subject of Varga and Linney, Burrows was also quick to note the pair were ticketed to go to the rival Newmarket Hurricanes, where former Spirit head coach Brian Perrin was general manager and coach. But with Perrin, whose brother Jeff coaches the Spirit, fired in March, Burrows scooped the pair. In coming days, Burrows said the club will announce further sign-

Fund helping kids stay on ice Minor hockey registration fees can be taxing on a family. Especially during uncertain economic times when a family member might be laid off from work. For families wishing to register their youngsters in the upcoming Whitchurch-Stouffville Minor Hockey Association campaign, who are strapped for funds, fear not. A program that will be entering its fourth year — the Kids First Fund — can offer assistance. Peter Harmsen, a fund spokesperson, cited those eligible to apply for aid must be residents of WhitchurchStouffville and their youngsters must register in the WSMHA. As well, the program is primarily geared for those who register in their house league program. However, he noted there have been occasions when they have offered financial assistance to players in select and rep programs. “We have money that we would

ings along with offering AP spots to hopefuls and severing ties with others. Before their roster is finalized, though, the Spirit are waiting to see if their eligible returnees will move up the competitive ladder or return from attending major junior camps. “We’ve got a number of kids all over the place,” Burrows said. “We’re not set yet as to who is coming back.” Nick Thomakos will be auditioning with the Barrie Colts of the OHL. Alex Gilmour will be at a United States Hockey League camp. Among players offered a spot on their AP roster included rookie goalkeeper and Stouffville resident Kyle Pescador, who would play for the Ajax-Pickering major midgets AAA club this season. With last year’s netminders, Conor McCollum and Gormley resident Aaron Taylor, expected back, that did not leave room for Pescador to start the season with the Spirit. He should get plenty of playing time with Ajax-Pickering. The Spirit opened its preseason schedule with a 7-6 road loss to the Lindsay Muskies Saturday. Varga, Devon Leduc, Kieran Beaudoin, Christian Papineau, Alex Williamson and Beau Bennie each scored once for the Spirit, who trailed 2-1 after the opening 20 minutes and 5-2 through two before mounting a furious comeback in the third before falling short. The Muskies outshot the Spirit 37-30. Taking to the ice the following day, the Spirit played the Pickering Panthers and skated off with a 4-1 win in Ajax. Gilmour, Ty Kubla, Varga and Kyle like to use for families who cannot afford to have their kids playing,” he said. “We want the money to stay in the community.” Last year, they assisted 13 to 14 families. The year before, 23. Families who wish to apply must first register with the WSMHA. From there, families can apply for assistance in total anonymity. Candidates will then talk with Kids First Fund committee members to see if they fit the program’s criteria. They can also direct families who require equipment to sources. Harmsen is pleased with how the program has worked in WhitchurchStouffville and with the response from generous donations provided by community members and organizations to make it happen. “It’s been good in the past and we want to let people to know there is money available for registration and we want to help,” he said. For details, go to www.wsmha. com or go to the minor hockey office at the Stouffville Arena.

Thomas, with an empty net marker, each scored once for the Spirit, who trailed 1-0 after the opening period before rebounding to take a 2-1 lead through two. Playing his second game in as

many days between the pipes for the Spirit, Pescador stopped 30 of 31 shots directed at him. The Spirit had 33 shots on the Panthers’ net. The Spirit are scheduled to play their first home preseason

game against Lindsay today at the Stouffville Arena at 7:30 p.m.

Spirit scoops up prospects who were Newmarket-bound


Mennos can capture second straight title with win Tuesday The Stouffville Mennos took a stranglehold in their best-of-five Richmond Hill Men’s Fastball League final after downing the Richmond Hill Ale Crew 4-1 to take a two-games-to-one lead at Richmond Green Tuesday.

The Mennos opened the scoring in the top of the first inning when Shawn Boadway doubled and scored on a single by Dale Boadway. Jeff Boadway then smacked a double that scored Dale Boadway to stake the Mennos to a 2-0 lead. The Ale Crew got one run back in the bottom of the first inning on a solo home run.

But in the fifth inning, the Mennos restored their two-run cushion when Rich Burkholder led off with a triple and scored on a sacrifice fly by Shawn Boadway. In the bottom of the fifth inning with two out, the Ale Crew threatened when they loaded the based with a single and two walks. But that was as far as they would get before

Mennos’ infielder Faisal Hassan caught a fly ball to end the inning. The Mennos rounded out the scoring in the seventh inning when Burkholder doubled and scored on a single by Dale Boadway. Greg Dalgarno pitched six and two-thirds innings and fanned nine batters to earn the win. In the bottom of the seventh

inning with two out and bases loaded, Jay Nesbitt came on in relief and struck out the only batter he faced to end the game and pick up the save. The defending league champion Mennos can wrap up the series at Richmond Hill Town Park Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. – Michael Hayakawa

Bill de Peuter was positive, selfless resident By Brea Bartholet

O

n July 9, Bradford West Gwillimbury lost one if its most instrumental figures. Bill de Peuter — the last mayor of Bradford, and the first of the amalgamated Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury in 1991 — was diagnosed with meningitis before he passed away at the age of 81. Growing up in Almkerk, Netherlands as the oldest of 13 children, de Peuter was eager to start a new life in Canada following some very major and devastating flooding in 1953. In May 1954, de Peuter, his siblings and parents, John and Catharina, chose to settle near the Holland Marsh in Springdale, experiencing the impact of Hurricane Hazel only months later, uprooting the family’s home from its foundation and causing it to float near an area along Hwy. 400. Though the terrifying storm proved a challenge for the new Canadians, the de Peuters chose to rebuild their life within the community they now called home. In 1957, de Peuter met the woman of his dreams, Rita, to whom he was happily married for 57 years. The two lived in the marsh for a 18 months after getting married, eventually choosing to move into the small, bustling town of Bradford.

Bill de Peuter was the last mayor of Bradford and the first of the amalgamated Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury. Staying connected to the community was key for de Peuter. In the early 1960s, he joined his brothers and dad in opening a painting business — John de Peuter and Sons Ltd.

His involvement also extended beyond the family business. de Peuter was passionate about his presence with the Rotary Club of Bradford and served with local police services boards, the Hol-

Cathy explained. It was in the fall of 1978 that he decided he could make a big difference in the community and chose to begin his political career. He first ran for public office in Bradford and was elected as councillor. In 1983, he stepped into the position of deputy reeve, followed by mayor of Bradford in 1986, where he became BWG’s first mayor and served his term until the following election. Unfortunately, the early 1990s brought on illness for de Peuter. In 1994, he was diagnosed with kidney failure. Thankfully, he underwent a successful transplant surgery once it was discovered his sister, Cathy, was a positive match. Following that, de Peuter retired from the family business to focus on an active life through other community initiatives. With vast knowledge of construction, he put himself to work in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to assist with flood recovery in 2008. It was just one of the many positive and selfless acts de Peuter took part in throughout his life. In his remaining years, he spent time traveling between Bradford, Barrie and the family winter residence in Florida until he returned home in January for the last time. de Peuter is survived by his wife, Rita, five daughters, four sons-in-law, 15 grandchildren, one great grandson and 12 siblings.
