LETTER OF THE WEEK
Bill to end wasteful ads from Ottawa good start
Social media communication timely election issue, Stouffville
ISSUE: Federal Conservative government advertises program not yet launched.
he way the federal Conservative government seems to approach some of its advertising spending reminds us what it must feel like to pay for a meal after you lose your appetite. Canadians, including the people of York Region, need to know about national programs that promote, for instance, public health initiatives or changes to employment insurance. But spending millions to advertise a program that has yet to launch and has hit bump after bump in the road to negotiating said plan with the provinces and territories is a bit fresh. The proposed Canada Job Grant, touted by the Tories in last October’s throne speech, is meant to help the most vulnerable people in our communities, workers who don’t qualify for employment insurance, have few skills or are poorly educated. Problem is, while it is supposed to launch April 1, Ottawa and the provinces and territories are nowhere near an agreement on exactly how it will roll out. Why the rush in advertising it then, you ask? That’s a good question and one to which Liberal MP David McGuinty is seeking an answer. Mr. McGuinty last October introduced a bill based on Ontario’s system that would have the Auditor General appoint an independent advertising commission to oversee government spending on advertising and pre-screen all advertisements. It is called the Elimination of Partisan Government Advertising Act and, in Mr. McGuinty’s words, would help prevent the spending of millions of dollars to advertise a program (such as the one described above) that doesn’t even exist, which, he said, is like flushing tax dollars down the toilet. We think this is an idea whose time has come, particularly when
you consider the Conservative government is projected to spend about $1 billion on advertising by the end of next year. Here’s how the program could, theoretically, work. All advertisements and marketing campaigns, whether it be to raise awareness or deliver important information, would be screened before being released to the public by a panel set up by the auditor general. One of the key mandates of the panel would be to flag any project that appears to be partisan waste. That is, if a particular ad campaign appears to bolster support for the government of the day, and nothing more, then it gets the axe. We would suggest taking it a step further in that even before mega-bucks are doled out to agencies for its creative work in the first place, a comprehensive and strategic communications plan be put forward to the panel for evaluation and approval. Then and only then should any cash change hands. There’s no sense in closing the barn door after the horse has left. We’re quite certain you won’t pop the cork on the champagne bottle when you read that this new ad panel put a stop to the airing of a commercial that already cost taxpayers $250,000 to create, for example. There have been reforms on this file since the dark days of the sponsorship scandal with regards to strengthening oversight, transparency and accountability on how our government advertises and markets what it does, but as a former prime minister once noted in a victory speech: “The Canadian dream is not complete, there is work to do”.
BOTTOM LINE: Liberal MP is on right track to cut wasteful spending, but don’t stop there.
Re: Angry councillors demand answers from waste firm, Jan. 16. I would like to congratulate Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville staff for doing an excellent job of keeping me informed as to why my garbage and recycling was not picked up Jan. 4. Making full use of Facebook and Twitter postings, I was informed about the delays and the reasons for those delays. Given that wild animals are not active in rural Whitchurch at this time of year and that the dogs can’t get into the green bins and that our garbage bags are contained in a garbage box, the delay was not a problem for us. I was in the town office Jan. 7 and I suggested that since nothing had been picked up, why not just skip the week altogether and get back to regular pickup beginning Jan 9. I guess they agreed, as the next day that is exactly what happened. The only inconvenience was my having to retrieve the boxes, green bin etc. from the snowbank and clearing that area, which I had to do anyway to get out of our driveway. Everything was picked up on Jan. 11. As for the councillor’s complaints about having to field all of the complaint calls,
Searching for the Binghams of Ballantrae We are trying to trace the family of our grandmothers brother who emigrated to Ballantrae, Ontario (from Ayrshire, Scotland) before the Second World War.

it really is time to elect a council that is at least up to speed with current social media communications. The employees of the town get it and used social media to everyone of their followers’ advantage. The current council still does not understand the need for speed in today’s fast-paced world.
The employees of the town get it and used social media to everyone of their followers’ advantage. The current council still does not understand the need for speed in today’s fast-paced world. It’s time for phone/Internet voting, social media communications and generally staying current, none of which this council seems capable of. Let’s make this an election issue. Ask the folks who are willing to sacrifice their time to serve this wonderful community, where they stand on these issues. Time to move forward.

Get active this winter ROBBIE BURNS DAY
hope that your holidays were enjoyable, healthy and safe. We weathered a severe ice storm in late December and I extend my sincere thanks to the town’s public works crews for their diligent efforts in keeping our roads clear and safe. We are also grateful for the hydro crews who worked around the clock to restore power to affected homes and businesses. January temperature extremes followed the ice storm and many residents encountered weather-related delays in the pick-up of green and blue bins. Customer service staff did an excellent job of fielding a high volume of calls. We apologize for the inconvenience and Wayne Emmerson thank you for your patience. Council and staff are working together to ensure a return to the service levels to which we are accustomed. It was a pleasure to assist with the annual Community Christmas Dinner this year. The event was a great success. We served approximately 250 sit-down meals at EastRidge Evangelical Missionary Church, as well as preparing and delivering 260 meals to those who were unable to attend. A week later, I had the privilege of hosting my final Mayor’s Family New Year’s Eve celebration in Memorial Park. It was a bitterly cold night, making the bonfire pit a popular place to congregate. The horse-drawn sleigh rides, ice sculptures and free food were enjoyed by all and the evening ended with a spectacular fireworks display. My sincere thanks to the corporate sponsors who made this display possible. The nomination process for the 2014 municipal election officially opened Jan. 2 and will close on Sept. 12. Check the town’s website to see who has registered to run for mayor and ward councillors. I will not be seeking re-election as mayor and will, instead, seek the position of chairman of York Region. I encourage residents and their families to make the season more enjoyable by keeping active. There are tobogganing hills at Memorial Park and Rupert Park, numerous outdoor skating rinks throughout the municipality, as well as beautiful trails to get out and experience nature. A budget and audit committee meeting is scheduled for Jan. 28 in council chambers commencing at 9 a.m. All are welcome to attend. Looking ahead to spring, many of our youth are anxiously awaiting the opening of our new skate park. I will keep you updated on this and other projects as work progresses. Whitchurch-Stouffville Mayor Wayne Emmerson is writing a monthly column for The Sun-Tribune.

Our theme this week is Scottish in commemoration of the fabled Scotsman who was probably their most proliﬁc — and romantic — writer of verse and of song. Basically a farmer who followed his heart, at ﬁrst unsteady, but eventually to immortal fame as the national poet of Scotland. You can’t attain these heights on an empty stomach, so we’ll be serving traditional Scottish fare in his memory. We’ve used a bit of license where it was necessary to do so, but we should be able to make a Scotsman feel at home this week.
These seem to be a natural at the moment, because we all have the Winter Blues... it’s -24° today! What’s good here are that these are in full pints, excellent since they are considered brain food. They come from Chile, and they are at their peak since the growing season there is seemingly as long as the country is, in a North-South sense. Eat up, and be smarter! Featured at $2.99 pint this week.
I really didn’t think that this was a good ﬁt with Scottish fare, but a simple wander through the ‘net’ proved me wrong. Smoking is most deﬁnitely an accepted Scottish practice, and you will ﬁnd many recipes for smoked chickens, and many purveyors. Ours are a bit different in that we smoke them whole rather than in portions. We use oak, as they do, and I recommend the very un-Scottish but delicious OFF red pepper jellies that we sell THIS as the condiment of choice. WEEK Reg. $14.95 each.
And to demonstrate what is possible with these, we’ll also be featuring a deli salad using lentils, our bacon, onions, grape tomatoes, mustard, lemon and chives. Featured this week at $1.49/100g.
LUNCH? MARMALADE BAKING — WHAT’S FOR —
We’ve been in a hot and protracted debate about what to serve for lunch that would be appropriate for Robbie Burns. We wrestled with Bacon Baps, because you need the best bacon for that (which we have), but we ﬁnally settled on salmon: ‘Scottish-style’ Salmon, which is actually Atlantic salmon! We’ll be making these sandwiches on a dark bread with the customary cream cheese and capers, sweet red onions and spinach. Featured this week at $6.99 each.
For Sunday Brunch, we’ll be serving Scotch Broth Soup, with a choice of either Aberdeen Angus Steak Pie, Chicken Breast with a Scotch Cream Sauce or Farfalle Pasta with Chicken, in a Rosé Sauce, all with either mashed potatoes or rice, tea or coffee, plus a mini dessert. Served from 11am to 2pm. Price will be $10.95.
No Scottish (or even English) breakfast is complete without marmalade, so we’ve arranged a feature on MacKay’s. 10 great ﬂavours in all, from Arbroath, Scotland. OFF THIS Reg. $4.99/250ml. WEEK
SAUSAGES You might know these as Lorne Sausages, so named after the original butcher who brought them fame. It’s a pork sausage, with ‘crumb’ or ‘rusk’, which is English for breadcrumbs. It’s on the mild side, and it’s a must LB. for the occasion.
SIRLOIN RUMP JOINT % 25
This term should bring the meat nomenclature police out in force, but it’s really a sirloin steak roast. We trim them really well (so you don’t have to), and they can be had in any size from 2 to 7 lbs. It’s a great oven roast. What to serve it with? Nips and Tattys; OFF THIS translated that’s parsnips and potatoes—horseradish, too! Reg. $9.95/lb. WEEK
This cheese is a cheddar from England, but it’s jacked-up with Scotch Whiskey, in the spirit of the beloved Burns. It’s pretty smooth in character, and it will put you in the mood for your Scotch Eggs and Rumble de Thumps. OFF Reg. $5.79 per 100g THIS WEEK
This can be had two ways; either au naturel, or stuffed with our lemon and dill bread stufﬁng. OFF THIS Reg. $10.95/lb. WEEK
Let’s start this off with a traditional Scotch Broth, made with lamb shanks, sweet onions, carrots, celery and turnips. It will be available in a 1L size. Featured at $5.99 each. Next, we’ll move on to Scotch Eggs. We use our sausage meat, ‘crumb’, herbs and spices, and the hard-boiled egg, of course! These are a meal in themselves (you might need two if you’re hungry). They are very good with chutney. Featured at $1.49 each. And now, we’ll have Rumble de Thumps. This is a Colcannon-like dish with potatoes, onions, cabbage, cheddar and butter. It will be sold in 4”x5” foils. Featured at $4.99 each. Lastly, we’ll be making Steak Pies, using that venerable Scottish beef, Aberdeen Angus, a beef that is world-renowned. We use lots of veggies, including peas, bacon, beef stock, spices, and ﬁnish it off with a nip of Scotch. Featured at $16.95 each (Includes $2 Ramekin Deposit).
This week we are making all kinds of wonderful Scottish delights! SCONES $1.69 each There will be a sale on a variety of scones this week: blueberry with lemon zest, oatmeal and a bit of buttermilk, strawberry with orange marmalade baked in, and lemon ﬂavored with a bit of Scotch Whiskey, nutmeg and honey! “TIPSY LAIRD” $5.95 Tipsy Laird is a Scottish term for Triﬂe. A wonderful concoction of custard, whipped cream, fresh berries and white cake soaked with sherry and Drambuie. Topped with toasted almond slices. Packed in containers in our self-serve bakery cooler (right by the squares). SHORTBREAD $9.95/container Shortbread has been called “the jewel in the crown” of Scottish baking. Although it has been made since the 12th century, the reﬁnement of shortbread is credited to Mary, Queen of Scots. Traditionally the shape is triangular “petticoat tail”, but we are featuring our square shortbread this week. We only use butter, brown sugar and ﬂour to make ours, and they melt in your mouth. The ﬂavors this week are lemon, traditional, Toblerone (I know, not Scottish, but very popular) and almond. OATMEAL COOKIES $7.95/container We have been making these cookies for many years, most popular being oatmeal raisin. Besides the raisin, we are also making plain oatmeal, triple chocolate oatmeal and a new Oatmeal Blueberry! ‘MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS” CAKE $15.95 We wanted to make something interesting with Scottish Orange Marmalade this week, so we came up with this recipe. It is an absolutely delicious buttercake with dates and orange marmalade baked in. It is sweet and tart at the same time. After baking, it’s brushed with melted butter and brown sugar and topped with our homemade candied orange slices. This is sure to become a new favourite! CARROT CAKE $15.95 and $25.95 I’ve been told that carrot cake is a favourite in Scottish home-style bakeshops. Our carrot cake is full of carrots, pineapple, pecans and coconut, iced with a rich cream cheese icing and topped with OFF little royal icing carrots. THIS

Joys of delivering the news
y weekly Sun-Tribune newspaper deliveries always conclude with a stop-off at Tim Hortons. There’s nothing like a hot cup of coffee to warm the innards and boost the spirits. Following a trek of two miles and 190 drops, I feel a break is earned. However, the respite, be it a take-out or a sit-down, is invariably accompanied by a challenge. The question is why? Why send a man on a boy’s journey? Or as coffee club colleagues undoubtedly wonder – why would any man accept a boy’s job? I, too, sometimes ponder the query. It all started 25 years ago. I’d recently retired as editor of this newspaper and was looking for part-time employment that might keep me out of the kitchen. Wife Jean was discreetly looking also. Likewise, as fate would have it, the then-Tribune was seeking a doorto-door delivery person on my street. Why not? I asked myself. Initially, the route included part of Rupert Avenue plus all of Glad Park Avenue and Westlawn Crescent, a total of 60 papers. It was a snap, about 90 minutes travel time per week. Days later, the distance was expanded to include a portion of Elm Road and 20 more papers. Now, the area takes in a westerly section of Rupert Avenue along with Glengall Lane and Maystone Court. The latter three streets were originally classed as temporary. I was merely a substitute for a carrier on vacation. That was 15 years ago. At present I’m also attending a Sun-Tribune newspaper box on Sandiford Drive, a drop at town hall, five commercial businesses on Winona Drive along with two Glad Park Avenue schools and St. Mark church – a total of 190 papers. This number increases to 215 when it’s
Roaming Around with Jim Thomas sometimes necessary to take over wife Jean’s route that includes the Elm Road apartments, Parkview Home and TD Canada Trust. Excluding insertions of flyers, the weekly tour of duty requires about three hours. So why the vexation? As with any job, there are positives and negatives. The two-mile walking distance is a definite positive for it constitutes an excellent form of exercise. If I set a rapid pace – one drop a minute – I can almost feel the pounds rolling off. Second, I enjoy the company of people I meet, always friendly, always welcoming. And last but not least, I appreciate three of the four seasons – the beauty of spring, the warmth of summer and the colours of fall. On the negative side I dislike extreme cold, iced driveways and unreceptive dogs. This winter I’ve been subjected to the hazards of all three. But it’s not always a weekly walk. Depending on the load, a maximum of 15 papers per bag, I’ll sometimes opt for a four-wheeled cart. On other occasions I press the car into service, distributing bundles at appropriate intervals along the routes and later walking between bags. This eases loads on sagging
shoulders. Numbers of inserts, often as many as 30, are occasionally questioned by male recipients. But should I, for whatever reason, omit a Canadian Tire flyer from even one issue, a complaint call is certain. The same goes for food store handouts, Metro, No Frills, M&Ms and Walmart. Any omissions and the phone begins ringing. Of greater severity is the blunder of bypassing a customer completely. This shouldn’t happen but sometimes does. During the past 25 years I can count such slip-ups on two hands – two hands too many, my circulation manager might say. For those who may be contemplating this responsibility, a word of warning. Never, and I mean NEVER expose newspapers to the elements. Nothing irritates homeowners more than receiving SunTribunes soaked by rain or covered in snow. Not only are they extremely difficult to read but they also play havoc with snowblowers. And oh yes, deposits in eavestroughs aren’t welcomed either. I’ve learned from experience that placing papers between doors is a principal practice. Should this not be possible, plastic sleeves are always available. With regard to remuneration, someone once said “the road to riches begins with a paper route”. If this is so, bank interest on savings accounts should be higher than one percent. While a dollar saved is a dollar earned, if one considers the price of petrol and the cost of shoe leather, today’s paper carriers won’t get rich. Regardless, it’s an enjoyable pastime – so enjoyable, I hope to continue another 25 years and lead to my official retirement at age 110. Jim Thomas is a Stouffville resident who has written for area newspapers for more than 60 years.

We’ll all deserve our Big Lebowski moment
n the movie The Big Lebowski, The Dude and Walter scatter some of Donny’s ashes into the Pacific. I don’t think we need a spoiler alert for a flick released in 1998, but, just in case, turn the page now if you don’t remember the rest of Donny blowing from the Folger’s coffee can on to the boys’ faces. Gets me every time – the poignancy more than the humour. I probably go to more funerals than many. Two in the past week. Maybe it’s a product of this job or living in a close-knit community. Or more likely it’s my own rapidly escalating age, as our children so kindly remind me too regularly. Can’t say I’ve seen a coffee can pulled out or an ashes incident Lebowski style. There have been Elvis impersonators and hockey teams dressed in game-day jerseys. Flasks have been emptied. Bagpipes and electric guitars wailed on. Plenty of Kleenex used. Many more laughs and priceless stories. Each to their own. And not just in funeral parlours and church sanctuaries, but at taverns, roadside memorials and inside hockey rinks. The important thing is they said goodbye. I read the obituaries in my hometown newspaper most mornings, looking for the names of people I may have grown up with, or more likely their parents and our teachers and coaches. Too often I see something to the effect of: “Burial has already taken place and, at the request of Mr./Mrs. _______, there will not be a memorial service.”

Off The Top with Jim Mason The end. Sorry, deceased, this really isn’t about you. You’re upstairs or down there at this point in the game, hopefully taking the festivities in. It’s far more wonderful to hear about memorial services, wakes, celebrations of life or whatever you want to call them. My dad died last year at age 95. We knew each other pretty well. I lived happily at home until I was 24. Later, we vacationed together regularly and spoke almost daily. But it was at the hotel reception following his church/Masonic funeral that I picked up so much more. Former co-workers, community volunteers and lodge buddies sought family members out to share their stories and memories. They filled in the blanks from a part of his life we weren’t a part of. It was enlightening. It wouldn’t have happened without our family’s own Big Lebowski time. Jim Mason is editor of The Sun-Tribune. Follow him on Twitter @stouffeditor

Town council rejects citizen review of salaries
Available in most new Ford vehicles with 6-month prepaid subscription
You won’t get a say in the salaries of local politicians. A Whitchurch-Stouffville council remuneration review committee will not be created. The motion put forward by Councillor Phil Bannon to advertise for candidates was defeated Tuesday. “I don’t have a personal agenda when it comes to this item,” Mr. Bannon told his fellow councillors and the handful of audience members sitting in the gallery at town hall. Mr. Bannon wanted an arm’slength salary review committee created so future councils did not endure the criticism of giving themselves a raise. Mr. Bannon has publicly stated he will run for mayor in this year’s municipal election. Councillor Clyde Smith, who voted against the motion, did so because it had no mandate, terms of reference or objective for potential committee members to follow. He called the lack of detail a “landmine”. Council came under fire for considering 40-plus-per-cent hikes two years ago. They eventually voted themselves an 18.65-per-cent rise over two years. The mayor received 16 per cent. – Sandra Bolan

Blues legend loves touring – when not tutoring PM’s son By Sandra Bolan
It was a Cliff Richard movie that got Jack de Keyzer hooked on music but it was King Biscuit Boy who became his mentor. The blues guitarist/singer/songwriter/producer plays the Lebovic Centre for Arts and Entertainment - Nineteen on the Park Feb. 8. If Mr. de Keyzer could only have one job description follow his name, it would be live performer. However, he equally loves songwriting because it is the exact opposite – solitary, takes hours, even days or years to complete and will last forever. Mr. de Keyzer got his first guitar at age 10 but it was so big it sat at the foot of his bed. He got an electric guitar when he moved from England to Canada with his family a little later. That is what he taught himself to play on. Mr. de Keyzer started writing songs at 16 as a “curiosity to see if I could do it”. At 24, he took writing more seriously as he was now a member of the Bopcats and they needed original material for an album. Mr. de Keyzer eventually left
the Bopcats and joined The Rock Angels. He went solo in 1991 with the release of Hard Working Man.
Mr. de Keyzer has been a session guitarist for Etta James, Otis Rush, Ronnie Hawkins, Blue Rodeo and Bo Diddley, He has since released seven CDs, two of which earned him Juno awards for blues album of the year – 6 String Lover (2003) and The Corktown Sessions (2010). Three other recordings also earned him blues album of the year Juno nominations. Mr. de Keyzer is also the recipient of seven Maple Blues awards. Last year, he attended the awards ceremony with Laureen Harper, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s wife. They met back in 2009 when she emailed Mr. de Keyzer noting she was a big fan and would he stop by 24 Sussex Dr. to give her son Ben a guitar lesson.
“I’m reading this thinking this is a clever twist from ‘I’m a prince from Africa’,” he said, initially thinking it was joke. Ben, Mr. de Keyzer said, was really good and played the same Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton riffs he did as a teenager. In between meeting the prime minister’s family, solo recordings and touring, Mr. de Keyzer has been a session guitarist for Etta James, Otis Rush, Ronnie Hawkins, Blue Rodeo and Bo Diddley, to name a few. As a session guitarist, however, he sometimes has to play outside his musical wheelhouse. “Playing any kind of music is good. So I’m happy to give them what they want,” Mr. de Keyzer said. Being able to change up his guitar stylings, along with writing and producing, he said, is the key to his longevity and something he encourages all up-and-coming musicians to do. Mr. de Keyzer does almost 200 shows a year. “I’m lucky the audience is there and I love to play,” he said. Showtime is 8 p.m. Feb. 8. Tickets are $25 each and available at /nineteenonthepark.com/jack-de-keyzer/
Jack de Keyzer plays 19 on the Park in Stouffville Feb. 8.

‘Outsider’ accepts chance to tell aboriginal story BY SANDRA BOLAN
It wasn’t her story to tell. She wasn’t of aboriginal descent, nor was she even Canadian, let alone a visible minority. But it was a story Jennifer Dance believed needed to be told. Native Canadian authors beat her to the punch with factual accounts of life in Indian residential schools and publishers continually repeated it’s not your story to tell. But in a twist of fate, in 2000 Ms Dance’s oldest daughter married a First Nations man. It was his family who encouraged her to keep seeking out a publisher and to write the story. They even provided information for it from their own family’s experiences. Red Wolf, the fictionalized adventure tale of a native boy taken from his family who befriends an orphaned wolf pup is now available. In the 1800s, thousands upon thousands of children were literally ripped from the arms of their mothers and fathers in order to
“Take the Indian out of the Indian”, as Sir Duncan Campbell Scott, head of the Indian Affairs department, defined his mandate early in the last century. Ms Dance had just moved to Toronto from England and shortly thereafter became a widow raising her two very young biracial children, with a third on the way, when she first learned about Canada’s Indian residential schools. The plight of the parents struck a cord with her. “I was hanging onto (my children) like my own means of survival,” the Whitchurch-Stouffville resident said of that time period in the 1980s. Ms Dance, now 64, along with her first husband and two children left England in 1979 because of its racist culture. They came to Canada thinking this country was safer. As her children went through the school system, she realized residential schools and what took place in them were not being taught to her children. She wanted that changed. Red Wolf is set in the late 1800s in the Algonquin Highlands. As
European settlers entrenched themselves in Canada, wolves and Indians were viewed equally as savages that needed to be gotten rid of and because they occupied land needed for logging and farming.
Native Canadian authors beat her to the punch with factual accounts of life in Indian residential schools and publishers continually repeated it’s not your story to tell. The story follows the journey of a young boy – Red Wolf – who befriends an orphaned wolf pup, he names Crooked Ear, who watched his own family get shot to death by settlers. Red Wolf is subsequently taken from his family and sent to an Indian residential school. The pair meet up later in life and head home.
Red Wolf was written for nonnative children and their parents. “Children need to know this stuff and they don’t,” Ms Dance said. Red Wolf’s Bruce County Indian Residential School does not exist and the level of abuse its students endure comes nowhere close to reality, which consisted of electrocution and forcing them to eat their own vomit. In 2006, a class-action lawsuit resulted in close to $2 billion for residential school survivors. It is estimated 150,000 children from aboriginal communities were taken from their parents and placed in residential schools, which had the mandate to de-Indianize them. Every single child was given an Anglophone name, they were forbidden to speak their native language and taught who they were was savage. Self-respect, a lack of identity and higher than average crime rates within the native population — “all of these problems go back to the residential schools and to the deliberate separation of children
from their parents,” according to Ms Dance. Ms Dance, who Stouffville residents may know better as Jenny Bowen – Dance is her maiden name – didn’t grow up wanting to be an author of stories that opened our eyes to the atrocities and injustices of our nation. She actually has a degree in agriculture. As a way to amuse her children when they were young, she wrote musicals for them, which led to writing musical plays for Christ Church Anglican, which her family attended. In the early 1990s she wrote and staged at the church The Crucifixion, which was followed by the children’s Christmas production Starchild. In 2003, her original American Civil Rights-era play Freedom Sings was staged in England. That play is coming to Stouffville in February 2015 with a new name – Dandelions in the Wind – and a reworked script. Singer Quisha Wint is also attached to the production. with files from Torstar News Service

Rugby player off to Vegas with provincial team Mikhaila Irving will be making a trip to Las Vegas this week. However, the Stouffville resident won’t be there to make any wagers. Rather, she will be displaying her skills on the rugby pitch as a member of the Ontario Under-18 Junior Storm seven’s team that will compete at the Las Vegas Invitational Sevens tournament. A member of the Markham Irish Canadian Rugby Football Club, Irving was one of 12 players between the ages of 15 to 17 selected for the provincial team that will compete in the Girls High School Division. A total of 15 teams registered from Canada and the United States are expected to compete in the
tournament that begins today and concludes Saturday. The tournament, which features more than 240 teams participating in 25 divisions, is one of the largest amateur rugby competitions in North America.
Minor bantam selects ice tourney title in Hamilton The Stouffville minor bantam rostered select Clippers recorded the first tournament victory in the rostered select program with a hard fought 1-0 victory over Halton Hills in the final of a recent event played in Hamilton. With the contest scoreless through two periods, the Clippers
won the game when Justin Bohemier tipped in a shot from the point from defensemen Simon Briones. Helping to preserve the win was a solid netminding effort from Matt Asselin, who recorded the club’s second shutout of the tournament and was named the player of the game. The Clippers reached the final after winning their opening game over the Cambridge Hornets 1-0. David Russell scored the game’s lone marker with assists going to Zavier Raza and Jordan Adshade. Evan Redshaw stopped every shot he faced to earn the shutout. Playing the Rosedale Devils in their second outing, the Clippers overcame a two-goal deficit to
emerge with a 4-3 victory. Adshade scored the gamewinning marker with just under 90 seconds remaining in regulation time while Liam Comeau, Jackson Brandon and Michael Siljanoski accounted for the other Stouffville markers. Siljanoski, Nick Romeo and Boeheimer each earned helpers. Stouffville’s lone blemish in the tournament came in their third outing which resulted in a 4-1 loss to the Halton Hills Thunder. Liam Comeau scored the lone goal off a Kirk Vogan chip off the boards and feed from Liam Beauchamp. That set the stage for the two clubs to meet again in the final.
Also contributing to Stouffville’s tournament title was some strong defensive play from Josh Henriques, Max Samu, Juhan Leis, and forwards Tyler Devereux and Devyn Cameron.

JR. A NOTEBOOK: Misfiring and out of playoff spot
Spirit look to snap 4-game slide tonight LAST WEEK: Friday: Aurora Tigers 7 vs. Stouffville Spirit 1. Monday: Cobourg Cougars 3 vs. Spirit 0. Spirit record: 13 wins, one overtime win, one shootout win, one overtime loss, three shootout losses, 20 losses, 34 points. Fourth place in North Division, Ontario Junior Hockey League. COMING UP: Today: vs. North York Rangers at Stouffville Arena, 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Toronto Lakeshore Patriots, 8 p.m. Sunday: vs. Orangeville Flyers at 2:30 p.m. GAME NOTES: If you had said to Stouffville Spirit head coach Jeff Perrin before their Monday road tilt against the Cobourg Cougars they would limit them to just three goals, chances are he would have liked his club’s chances to come away with at least one point, if not two. While the Spirit played a solid game defensively, they came away with no points as their offence picked a bad time to shoot blanks in a 3-0 loss. The Cougars opened the scoring early in the first period with a power play goal by Mitchell Gibson. In the second period, the Cougars capitalized on a bad line change by the Spirit and took a 2-0 lead on the strength of a goal by Jake Emilio that stood for 40 minutes. With time winding down in the third, the Spirit pulled netminder Daniel Mannella in favour of an extra attacker. But the Cougars’ Liam Grande scored into the empty net with 80 seconds remaining in regulation time to round out the scoring. The Cougars swept their season series against the Spirit and enjoyed a 34-25 advantage in shots. The loss by the Spirit was their fourth straight and marked the fourth time they were shut out this season. The absence of firepower was also evident in the Spirit’s prior outing when they suffered a 7-1 road loss to the North Division-leading Aurora Tigers Friday. In that tilt, the Spirit trailed 2-0 before Darryl Thomson scored a power play goal to cut their deficit to within one through the opening 20 minutes. But that would be as close as the Spirit would get as the Tigers erupted with three unanswered goals in the second period to take a 5-1 lead before adding two more in the third to round out the scoring. The Tigers outshot the Spirit 40-22. INSIDER: The Spirit played Friday and Monday’s games without defenceman Jack O’Hara, who suffered a lower body injury during last Thursday’s game against the Whitby Fury. Perrin anticipated O’Hara might be out for at least one week. Also absent from the lineup Monday was forward Justin Wain, who incurred a hand injury during last Friday’s road game against Aurora. Perrin said the Keswick native will be out indefinitely. Former Spirit forward Massimo Lamacchia was named Brown University’s male student-athlete of the week for the period ending Jan. 13. The 22-year-old Maple resident who is in his junior year as a forward with the Bears notched a pair of goals in a 3-3 tie against fourth-ranked Boston College in front of a sellout crowd at Meehan Auditorium in Providence, R.I., Jan. 11. Lamacchia toiled with the Spirit during the 200809 season before splitting time the following year with the Victoria Grizzlies of the British Columbia Hockey
League and now defunct Markham Waxers and then playing with the Coquitlam Express of the BCHL in 2010-11. Stouffville resident and former Spirit forward Chris Porter collected one goal and one assist in a pair of games for American International College against Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh last weekend. Currently in his sophomore year, Porter’s helper came in a 4-4 tie Friday. The following day, Porter notched the club’s first goal in the second period in a 5-2 loss. Former Spirit forward Drake Caggiula was credited with one assist in the University of North Dakota’s 1-1 road tie against Bemidji State University Friday. Currently in his sophomore year, Caggiula’s contributions have helped the 20th ranked University of North Dakota enjoy a current nine-game unbeaten streak. GENERALLY SPEAKING: “They (Cobourg) are a big, physical team and I thought we stayed with them. But they got a power play goal and one empty net goal and on their one even strength goal we made a bad line change,” Perrin said of Monday’s loss to Cobourg, who with their win, moved into a first-place tie with the Kingston Voyageurs in the highly competitive East Division standings. Scoring just one goal in their last two games, Perrin acknowledged his club has picked an inopportune time to experience a drought. Especially with the regular season winding down and the Spirit trailing the Newmarket Hurricanes by three points for what could be the final playoff spot in the North-East Conference. “Our offence has been a struggle and we knew it would be that way,” he said. “Scoring is a weird thing in that every person that can score goes into a slump. Team-wise we’ve got to get more pucks onto the net and create some traffic in front.” Most frustrating to Perrin and the rest of the team has been their inability to capitalize on what games they once had in hand on Newmarket that’s now down to just one. “In our last four games we’ve played four of the top teams in the league (Buffalo, Whitby, Aurora and Cobourg) and from all of it we got just one point (a 5-4 shootout loss against Buffalo on Jan. 12),” said Perrin. “It would be nice to get a couple of more points for sure to gain ground.” In attempting to stop their four-game slide, the Spirit will play host to the North York Rangers today. Firmly entrenched in second place in the South Division, North York lost their one earlier meeting against the Spirit. If the Spirit hope to sweep the regular season series against North York, Perrin felt controlling the tempo will be critical. “They (North York) have some good forwards up front who we have to keep an eye on. We can’t get into a run and gun game with them and we will have to limit our turnovers,” he said. Go to yorkregion.com for Spirit post-game coverage. -Michael Hayakawa
