‘No plans’ for trade centre: town CAO ‘We don’t know why,’ chamber of commerce members told BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

Corebridge Development Corporation has no immediate plan to build the controversial trade centre in west-end Stouffville, according to Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville CAO Marc Pourvahidi. The new CAO made this announcement last Thursday night during a Whitchurch-Stouffville Chamber of Commerce networking event. About 30 people were in attendance, including Mayor Justin Altmann, as well as councillors Rick Upton and Maurice Smith. Pourvahidi noted that despite all the publicity the trade centre generated during last year’s municipal election, it “has not turned into reality and we don’t know exactly why”. There are currently on-going discussions taking place with the owners of the former Southwire building, at Main and Mostar streets, but there is no site plan application with the town, he said. Corebridge officials did not respond to a request for comment. Creating a connection between Ringwood and Hoover Park drives would be a connection to nowhere, Pourvahidi said when asked what the status of that planned access route was. A bridge, which will cost between $1.5 million and $2 million to construct, is required for the two roads to be joined and it is on the books for the next 10 years, he said. The problem, he said, is development to the See TOWN, page 9.

IS YOUR PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT IN A WELLHEAD PROTECTION AREA?

PUBLIC WORKS

TUESDAY, July 28 Council Meeting 3 p.m.

The South Georgian Bay Lake Simcoe Source Protection Plan is now in effect, which means changes to the development rules in York Region within the Lake Simcoe watershed (generally the northern half of the Town). Properties within wellhead protection areas will now have to comply with Source Protection Plan policies to protect our drinking water sources from possible contamination. The Clean Water Act takes precedence over municipal zoning bylaws and official plans until they have been updated to reflect these changes. To see if your proposed development is affected, locate the property using the York Region viewer at york.ca/SPMap or talk to Town planning staff. Ifyourpropertyiswithinawellheadprotectionarea,contact the York Region Risk Management Office at 905-830-4444 extension 73000 or email sourcewaterprotection@york.ca

The agenda for the Council meetings will be available for review at the Municipal Offices, Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library and on our website 12 p.m. (noon) the Thursday prior to the meeting.

NOTICES 2015 FINAL PROPERTY TAX BILLS 1st Instalment Due – July 17, 2015 2nd Instalment Due – September 18, 2015 RESIDENTIAL FINAL TAX bills have now been mailed. Ratepayers who have not received their bills should contact the Customer Service Centre as soon as possible. Failure to receive a tax bill does not eliminate the responsibility for payment of taxes or the penalty charges for late payment. TAX PAYMENTS may be made at most Financial Institutions through tellers, banking machines, telephone and Internet banking, by mail or in person at the Municipal Offices, 111 Sandiford Drive. An afterhours drop box is available at the Main Entrance doors. SUPPLEMENTARY TAXES ON NEWLY-CONSTRUCTED HOMES Owners have been or will be receiving tax bills for the value of the “land” only excluding building, until the house is assessed by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). Once assessed, supplementary tax bills will be issued for the house, retroactive to the date of possession. To estimate the annual taxes, simply multiply the purchase price of the home x 1%. This process can take 2 to 3 years and the tax bills will be due within a short time period. Prepayments on account or through a pre-authorized payment plan can be made to assist homeowners in planning for these future supplementary tax bills. For further information contact Customer Service.

Retirement research can be full-time work

H

ow will you spend the rest of your life? It can be a daunting question to we baby boomers who are at least contemplating retirement. Some day. Not today. To others, like fellow columnist and friend Jim Thomas — I’m honoured to share this page with him temporarily this week — retirement does not exist. At 86, the former editor of this paper regularly shames many of us decades his junior with his myriad of part-time jobs, volunteer commitments and family and friend time. Attending retirement parties and speaking to folks who have left the work force in recent years can be a mix of trepidation and exhilaration. “I go to the store and he’s here,” one woman told me. “I come back, he’s here. “He was never here before. Now, he’s always here.” ... not parked in front

of my Samsung as The Price As Right segues into Judge Judy, into Wheel of Fortune. I don’t want to be that guy. I wanna be that guy who’s out there doing stuff, not parked in front of my Samsung as The Price As Right segues into Judge Judy, into Wheel of Fortune ... like I was a new member of The Golden Girls. I’m just not sure what that “stuff” is. And judging by several conversations with my peers, I’m not flying solo on this one. Sure, I’d like to rent a townhouse in Key West for a month or two and live like a local, taking in the tiny island’s vast music scene, culinary delights and other cultural highlights.

Off The Top with Jim Mason But I’m not sure that’s a solid long-term plan. Then again, a TV commercial tells me I can turn the equity in our home into cash to do pretty much anything with — except leave anything for the next generation to play with. You can sit in your $1 million bungalow, count your RRSPs and plan your next trip to the Galápagos Islands. You can play golf or euchre with the same gang a few times every week. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. If you can swing it. Not everyone’s cut out to volunteer, but those who have found their niche can really revel in it, from the frantic ER at Markham Stouffville Hospital I wrote about last year to a partially rainy Strawberry Festival weekend. As the economy of Greece brings our stock market down this week, CBC-TV is running a report about a growing number of Canadian seniors declaring bankruptcy or at least accumulating more debt. Some have gone back to work. One woman has two jobs. Freedom 55 is now Freedom 75 for some. Maybe it is time to recount those RRSPs. Jim Mason is editor of The Sun-Tribune.

Oh baby, that was some fest

T

he weatherman was somewhat sympathetic. He held off his dampening of Saturday’s Strawberry Festival three hours later than earlier predicted, allowing thousands to leisurely wander up and down Main Street and Park Drive. Also to enjoy other festivities minus cumbersome umbrellas. While impossible to cover every event, I was impressed with those happenings my aging legs allowed me to attend. These follow:

Blooming babies Forty-one handsome and beautiful wee ones graced the stage in a baby show organized by Stouffville’s Top Spot and emceed by Springvale’s Alex Street. The eventual winner in the blessing of a draw was pretty 13-month-old Claryce Tang, daughter of John and Sharon Tang of Stouffville. The Tang family, including an older daughter Cadence, moved to town from Toronto five years ago, a decision that prompts miles of smiles. “We’re so pleased our family will grow up in the best country and the best town in the world,” Sharon enthused. “Stouffville has been so welcoming. There’s a real sense of community here.” Show judges included Dr. Zee Wang, Dr. Jas Elburie and Laurie Barry.

Dinner time for 850 Eight hundred and fifty men, women and children had their appetites satisfied at an open-air barbecue hosted by the Stouffville Lions Club Friday. Every member plus several volunteers helped, said barbecue chair Sharon McClenny. “And we needed every one.” McClenny praised assistance received by staff of the town’s lei-

selections by The Men of Note chorus, soloist Susan Ryman, 2014 Music Town, Ontario award winners, The Albert St. Four and this year’s recipient, violinist Matthew Eeuwes. The 2015 Music Town plaque was presented to Matthew by Rick Lightfoot.

All in the family

Roaming Around with Jim Thomas sure services department, headed by Bruce Hatt. “We couldn’t have done it without them,” she said, “they worked their hearts out.” The event marked the conclusion of Joe Boll’s year as club president. His successor is Yvonne Hurst.

Yes, kids can spell So today’s students can’t spell? Persons coming to this conclusion should have attended a spelling bee held Saturday in Stouffville’s Latcham Hall. Nineteen boys and girls astounded a soundless audience with their skills of concentration before a champion was finally declared. She was nine-year-old Shakana Nedunchelion, a Grade 3 pupil at Oscar Peterson Public School. She headed the class on the word ‘dialogue’. Second place went to Theedshana Sivamaran, also 9 and in Grade 3 at Wendat Village Public School. Victor Yee, 6, a student in Grade 1 at Harry Bowes Public School, was third. The contest was hosted by Stouffville’s Progressive Montessori School.

Four ovations A record four standing ovations were accorded participants in the 23rd annual Music Festival at Stouffville United Church, last week. Audience acclaim followed

A mother and daughter were three-game winners in the Strawberry Festival lawn bowling tournament Friday. Helen and Kathi Culley of Stouffville were teamed up with Rick Burrows of Willowdale. Bob Stover and Marie Adams, both of Stouffville, skipped their rinks to two-game wins. Other clubs were from Barrie to Toronto. Mayor Justin Altmann rolled the first ball to open the tourney. He also distributed newly-minted town lapel pins.

Our top citizens Whitchurch-Stouffville’s Food Bank board of volunteers, 2015 Citizens of the Year, were honoured by SunTribune editor Jim Mason at a ceremony Friday evening. Members include: Marion Wells, Joan Doble, Charlotte Chisolm, Jean Anderson, Dianne Croyn, Jean Nauta and Denise Casey. Congratulations were also extended by MP Paul Calandra, MPP Helena Jaczek, Mayor Altmann and festival co-chairs Sandy Stronach and Catherine McCowan. In an acceptance address, food bank co-ordinator Wells said: “It is indeed a great honour to be recognized by the community we serve as volunteers. May this local charity continue to assist the most vulnerable among us with care, concern and compassion.” Jim Thomas is a Stouffville resident who has written for area newspapers for more than 60 years.

The Ontario Ministry of Transportation is looking at adding High Occupancy Vehicle Lanes in each direction along a 26 km stretch of Hwy. 404, a move that could be a boon to York Region drivers. The ministry has started a Class Environmental Assessment to identify rehabilitation, operational and safety improvements along Hwy. 404 from the 407 ETR, through Whitchurch-Stouffville to Green Lane in Newmarket, and to contract staging and sequencing for future construction projects. According to a presentation made during

two public information centres, existing and future traffic conditions require additional capacity on Hwy. 404. Along with adding HOV lanes, the recommended plan includes proposed interchange improvements at 16th Avenue and Mulock Drive; bridge improvements; the implementation of a carpool at Major Mackenzie Drive and lighting improvements. The study is being undertaken by MMM Group and once it is complete, a Transportation Environmental Study Report will summarize the assessment. This study will be made available to the public for 30 days. Residents are invited to leave comments until July 14. Go to www.hwy404eastudy.ca.

Wrestlers can’t say if they won Amazing Race title BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

Asylum & Burns or The Flatliners have four tag-team title belts, according to cagematch. com Could the two, known during the day as Nick Foti and Matt Giunta, also add Amazing Race Canada winners to their resume? Giunta, a Stouffville resident, played coy with the results, as the first episode of the new season doesn’t air until July 8 on CTV. “It’s a great adventure,” is about as much as he would divulge. The third season of the show starts off in Quebec City then heads to Toronto. The contestants also travel to India at some point, according to the media release, which also states they travel to “several exciting foreign destinations”. Giunta and Foti auditioned for the first season of the show, but didn’t make it. “I just want to add to my story in life,” Giunta, a St. Brother Andre Catholic High School graduate said of why he wanted to be on the show. The pair missed the deadline for Season 2, but tried again for the third season, with the same audition tape they sent in two years earlier. The duo found out they made the cut in February during a Skype chat with show producers. “It was just an awesome feeling,” Giunta, 33, said. But they had to keep it to themselves. Giunta was able to tell his immediate family, but as far as his employer — Royal LaPage Stouffville — and his friends were concerned, he was on a six-week wrestling tour in Japan. “Most people bought it,” he said. In their bio, Foti and Giunta claim they have a fear/phobia of snakes. Could this adventure uncover other unrealized terrors? “You don’t know you’re scared of something until you have to push through it,” Giunta said. “It’s a challenge because you don’t know what challenges are coming, so you can’t prepare for what you don’t know,” he said. When it comes to the food challenges, Pro wrestlers Matt Giunta (right) of Stouffville and Nick Foti of Newmarket are in the which in the American version of the show has had contestants eat sheep butt fat, live octonew season of Amazing Race Canada, which debuts Wednesday on CTV. pus and various insects, don’t expect Giunta

and Foti to shy away. “We’re not going to want to do it, but we’re going to do it,” Giunta said. The two met in a Newmarket gym 10 years ago and decided to package themselves as a wrestling duo. “We’re the bad guys in a fun way,” he said. They tried out for the big wrestling promotions, but didn’t get picked up. Knowing each other for so long helped them during the race. Giunta is laid back and keeps things in perspective, while Foti “gets passionate and excited”. But he is the one entrusted with the passports, because according to a promo video, Giunta is most likely to lose them. “If everything goes wrong, I don’t see our 10-year relationship in jeopardy over anything that happened” on the show, Giunta said. “We’re still pals.”

‘I dress up in funky coloured Spandex on weekends.’ Stouffville’s Matt Giunta

on possible reality TV embarrassment

If they make it all the way to the end they will split $250,000, get gas for life, airfare anywhere Air Canada flies for a year and two Chevy Colorado trucks. Giunta would use the money for a downpayment on a house or condo. “The wrestling elements of our lives are coming to end,” he admitted. “I don’t think we’re expecting to be the next huge reality stars,” he said. Giunta will be watching Wednesday’s premiere at his sister’s house in Stouffville with friends. “I’m excited to see everybody else’s story,” he said. Is Giunta worried about being portrayed poorly or having embarrassing moments broadcast across the country? “I dress up in funky coloured Spandex on weekends,” Giunta laughed, noting whatever drama gets shown wasn’t contrived but genuinely borne out of the situation. Would he do this again? “Absolutely.”

Government of Ontario Paid for by the Government


BY SANDRA BOLAN

The Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville has $33.72 million tied up in long-term liabilities but “it’s not a problem,” according to Liz Araujo, the municipality’s treasurer. The $33 million consists of construction costs for the new operations centre, town hall and fire hall; Stouffville Clippers Sports Complex; phase 2 of Main Street; Memorial Park, as well as trails and bridges, Araujo said. The annual repayment value accounts for 9 per cent of the town’s yearly revenue, which is below the province’s cap of 25 per cent and the municipality’s self-imposed debt policy limit of 12.5 per cent, Araujo said. The June 16 report also revealed the municipality has a surplus of $250 million and assets valued at $257 million. “It shows that we have a lot invested in assets, otherwise we’d be driving around on gravel roads and have a rickety facility,” Araujo said. The town also has $61.53 million in investments, which is up from $50.65 million in 2013. “We are saving for the future, so we don’t have to tax heavily in the future,” she said.

Council changes mind on snowy walks If 10 or more centimetres of snow falls, all homeowners will have to clear their sidewalks. Council repealed its decision to have all

urban sidewalks cleared by the town when a minimum of 10 cm of snow accumulates. “A 10-cm snowfall is not an emergency,” Councillor Hugo Kroon said during discussions on the issue recently. He noted there is already a disconnect between rural and urban services and all residents would have to pay for the increased level of service being provided only to urban Stouffville. The intent behind the increased level of service was a good one but also a “disaster,” according to Councillor Ken Ferdinands, who noted some residents may not clear their sidewalks when less than 10 cm falls, causing it to pack down. “It’ll require dynamite to break up the ice,” he said. In March, council added $20,000 to the 2015 budget so all sidewalks within urban Stouffville could be cleared by the town when 10 or more cm of snow accumulated. Based on three snow events a year, 10 hours per route (there are four) plus an additional eight hours of hand clearing narrow sidewalks, the service would cost roughly $12,420, according to the staff report. The current level of service costs $171,471 and consists of snow clearing and sanding about 50 km of sidewalks, which is about 46 per cent of the total system, the report states. Sidewalks included in what the town currently clears are primary pedestrian routes to schools, Main Street and sidewalks leading to municipal facilities, according to the report.

Town eyes Gormley ‘gold mine’ From page 1.

south, in particular on the 100 acres of land at the corner of Hoover Park Drive and Hwy. 48, has not happened. Corebridge also owns that land. “It’s just another connection to Hoover Park. … It basically takes you nowhere,” he said.

Pourvahidi re-iterated the mayor’s proclamation of earlier this year the town is open for business and staff is working on trying to attract more business, as well as keep what is here. Downtown development is also top of mind for council and they are still working on getting services to Gormley. “That area is definitely a gold mine,” Pourvahidi said.

Watering tips to achieve a lush lawn R5

er or not a lawn was fertilized (experts typically recommend a lawn be fertilized several times, beginning in the spring and ending in October). Soil type and grass type also help to determine how much water a lawn needs, and homeowners who need to determine the type of soil and grass on their property can consult a local lawn care centre or landscaping professional.

Questions to ask before you hire a real estate professional So you’re ready to buy or sell your home, and you want the guidance of a real estate professional to help you with the process. But how do you pick the one that is right for you? “It’s always a good idea to meet with at least a few different real estate professionals before se-

lecting the one you’d like to work with,” says Joseph Richer, registrar of the Real Estate Council of Ontario. “You should also consider asking friends or family to recommend someone they’ve recently worked with.” When you’re ready to meet with a few represen-

tatives, consider asking these questions: 1. What is your experience? Experience is about more than how many years someone has been in business. Take the time to learn about the types of properties they typically work with, which cities or areas they work in, and how many homes they helped buy or sell in the past year. 2. What is your approach to the buying or selling process? If you’re buying, how will the representative search for suitable properties and what is their approach to negotiations? If you’re selling, how will your home be marketed to help attract prospective buyers? By understanding their approach, you’ll know what to expect and will be able to determine which representative’s philosophy and methods align with your preferences. 3. What services will be included? Discuss your particular needs and expectations with prospective representatives to ensure they are able to provide the services you expect. For example, when selling, will the representative have professional photos taken of your home? Will

they host open houses? What about advertising? Understanding exactly what services will be provided, and later documenting them in your written contract, will help avoid misunderstandings later on. 4. What are the commissions or fees that I will need to pay? Commissions and fees can vary between brokerages and for the services provided, so be sure to understand what will be provided, and what it will cost. Keep in mind that, as with most things, the cheapest deal is not necessarily the best one. 5. Do you have references? As with most job interviews, getting in touch with references is an important step before hiring someone. So, speaking with past clients is a great way to learn more. Were past clients pleased with their experience? Was the representative responsive and easy to get in touch with? Would they recommend them to others? “Buying or selling a home is a major decision, so it’s important to take the time to find the right representative for you,” says Richer.

Adam Crossley, former lead singer for the Nashville-based pop-rock band 9-Point Landing, plays Nineteen on the Park July 9. His song So She Dances was recorded by Josh Groban.

Fiddle music and step dancing, a Nashville-based singer-songwriter, a gospel-infused rock/blues group and a South American folk singer all headline this year’s summer patio series in Civic Square. The “upscale patio vibe” also includes cappuccinos, lattes and cold beer. This is the third year for the concert series. Although there is a wider variety of music being showcased this year, because of the size of Civic Square and its proximity to homes, there are limitations. “We wouldn’t put a heavy metal band out there or a comic that swears,” said Ashley McIntosh, acting cultural facility and programming co-ordinator for the Lebovic Centre for Arts and Entertainment - Nineteen on the Park. Of the four shows last year, only one had to be brought inside Nineteen on the Park. Civic Square is in front of it. Kicking it off this year July 9 is Adam Crossley. The former lead singer for the Nashville-based pop-rock band 9-Point Landing, Crossley has ventured out on his own. In 2010, Crossley released his first solo album – Anvil of a Heart – which had the top-10 AC chart single Beautiful World. His song, So She Dances was recorded by Josh Groban.

For the past 14 years, Cano has toured the world with Canadian Cree playwright and composer Tomson Highway. Cano launched her singing career in 2009 with an album done in four languages. This is the New World won best album – solo artist at the North Ontario music and film award conference. The series closes with The Fitzgerald Family Band, which entertains crowds with their high energy fiddling and percussive step dancing. Their stage show combines jigs and reels, bluegrass, jazz, swing standards, Celtic and gospel. All shows start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $33 each and available at www. nineteenonthepark.ca

Barry Ace draws inspiration from traditional Anishinaabe objects and imagery then introduces other elements to create a convergence of historical and contemporary work. The Odawa artist’s solo show – Mnemonic Manifestations – is at Latcham Gallery July 9 to Aug. 15. Ace is the recipient of the 2015 KM Hunter Award for Visual Art. The exhibit is a collection of mixed media along with a group of mixed media digital photos. The opening reception takes place July 9, 7 p.m. at the gallery, 6240 Main St. It is open to the public. Ace will be present and Robert Houle, a governor general award for visual and media art winner, will make opening remarks. Get more information at www.latchamgallery.ca

Samantha Martin and Delta Sugar headline the July 30 show. “They’re a little more rock than we’ve had on the stage before,” McIntosh said. The trio’s vocals are described as “cigarette-ravaged and whiskey soaked.” Patricia Cano brings some international flair to the outdoor stage Aug. 18.

Free golf for kids playing with adults ClubLink wants to see more youngsters get into the game of golf in Whitchurch-Stouffville.

Jim brought a wealth of experience, knowledge, and enthusiasm to the league and helped us to continue to move forward. We wish Jim all the best in his new role with the Black Wolves,” Dowling said. Joining Veltman with the Black Wolves will be fellow Stouffville resident and former Rock teammate Glenn Clark, 45, who recently took over as their head coach. A teacher at Bayview Secondary School in Richmond Hill, Clark also spent two seasons in the Canadian Lacrosse League as a coach with the Oshawa Machine and Toronto Shooting Stars and had a career coaching record of 15-15.

The Classic Course has a mix of short par-fours and par-threes with a par of 62 and 4,010 yards. Bethesda Grange Golf Course is a fun and forgiving track and rewarding for golfers of all abilities with a par of 72 and 6,484 yards. For more information on the Junior Bonus Program or to reserve a tee time, call LinkLine at 1-800-276-9542. The offer is limited to one child per paying adult (19 years of age or older).

Jim Veltman toiled in the National Lacrosse League with the Toronto Rock where he was their team captain for 10 seasons, earned the league’s most valuable player award in 2004 and played an integral role in leading them to three championships. When the league starts up next season, the 49-year-old Stouffville resident will make a return, after serving as the Canadian Lacrosse League’s commissioner this past season and in 2012 and 2013. But it won’t be as a player. Veltman will occupy a position behind the bench after accepting a position to become an assistant coach with the New England Black Wolves in Uncasville, Conn. Veltman said it represents another chapter in his storied lacrosse career, which also included a stint with Canada’s entry that won the 2003 World Indoor Lacrosse championship, being on four Mann Cup championship teams and induction into the National Lacrosse League Hall of Fame. At the same time, he was quick to thank the Canadian Lacrosse League for the time he spent in helping direct their program that served as a feeder system to the National Lacrosse League. “To get an opportunity to join the coaching staff of the New England Black Wolves is a great honour,” Veltman said in a Canadian Lacrosse League news release. “I would like to thank the Canadian Lacrosse League for the opportunity to help them grow and I wish them the best. “This is truly an exciting day for me and my family as I take on this challenge and enter a new phase of my career in lacrosse.” Jeff Dowling, Canadian Lacrosse League executive vice-president and director of lacrosse operations, was quick to thank Velt-

Cellphone cameras were busy when Canadian athlete – and Stouffville resident – Karen Cockburn lit the Pan Am Games’ flame in Stouffville Memorial Park Friday.

Stouffville man is keeper of Pan Am flame BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

If the Pan Am flame could talk, it would have some stories to tell. Over 41 days, the flame will be passed between 3,000 individual torch bearers and travel to and through more than 130 communities by car, plane, boat, fire truck, zipline, unicycle and clysdale horse, to name a few. The flame even took a ride on Canada’s Wonderland’s Leviathan roller coaster last week. “Every day we have a unique mode of transportation,” said Steve Wallace, vice-president of brand activation for the Pan Am/Parapan Am Games. The torch and its bearers have had to contend with a lot of wet weather. But the flame has stayed lit and everyone makes the most of it. According to Wallace, the only time the torch is not run is in lightning conditions. “The torch doesn’t stop,” he said. He should know — he’s been with the torch every step along the way. Wallace, a Stouffville resident, is the guardian and creator of the Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games’ brands, including official marks, logos, taglines, mascot program and torch relay. Wallace, 50, started working on the torch relay two-and-a-half years ago.

STEVE WALLACE: Stouffville resident’s journey with the Pan Am torch brought him home Friday. The goal was to have the torch reach 85 per cent of Ontarians within a onehour drive and be close to venue sites on weekends. “It was challenging, but it was fairly easy because a lot of people wanted to be a part of the Games,” he said. There will be two relays leading up to the Parapan Am Games. One torch will leave Ottawa, the other Niagara Falls and on the fifth day, they will both converge in Toronto for

the opening ceremonies. The Parapan relay, according to Wallace, has traditionally been 24 hours long. Wallace is aware of the local apathy surrounding the games, but that was all accounted for in the marketing plan. “We don’t buy tickets for the circus until the tent goes up,” he said, adding the excitement has heightened with every town the relay goes through. The married father of three addressed the large crowd during the community celebration in Stouffville Memorial Park Friday, then was off to Markham and Montreal before coming back to Toronto for the Pride Parade Sunday. Once the games are over, Wallace will be unemployed, along with a number of other people who have spent years on the project. “I’m doing my dream job, which is incredible,” he said. He does not know what his next challenge will be, but the first order of business will be to stay home. Prior to joining the Pan Am Games, Wallace was the head of marketing for Cold FX. He also landed the deal as the official supplier to the Vancouver Olympic Games.

A celebration of lives well lived and people well loved Read more Life Stories on yorkregion.com

People were drawn to Allison Zeppieri By Jeremy Grimaldi

jgrimaldi@yrmg.com

W

hen you entered a room with Allison Zeppieri in it, you knew it. “She had a very striking personality, not to mention her beauty,” her father, Frank, said. “People were just drawn to her. She was a charming young woman.” These were far from her only qualities, according to Frank, who further explained how sensitive, creative and caring she was with her family and friends. “She was always writing letters, she was really great at expressing herself,” he added. “She loved people and she could laugh at herself, so people really loved her.” However, Frank noted with a chuckle, if you were to watch Allison playing hockey, you may never know any of that. Until the age of 13, Allison played with the boys and only began playing with girls teams in her teenage years. When on the ice, he said, she was both determined and intense. Relaying one story, he explained how during a game in Grade 8 while playing with boys, she would eventually become fed up with one player who would not stop taunting her. Although he said she managed to keep away from him most of the game, she finally had enough and body checked him so hard that he was left lying on the ice for five minutes. She was subsequently suspended for the rest of the season.

Lstories ife

It was this intensity and her skill level that allowed Allison to get letters of intent for hockey scholarships from Ivy League universities, including Princeton. “Her coaches loved her, she would go out there and do anything they asked of her,” he said. “In the end though, she just wasn’t really that into it all.” Frank said her real passion was art, explaining just how creative she was, searching for examples of her handwriting, which he said was flawless, a work of art in itself. These were just some of the qualities that more than 800 people turned up to celebrate at her funeral, which took place days after her passing on June 7. “I will remember her love and smile the most,” he said. “Father’s Day was especially rough for me, this is something that will be with me for the rest of my life. It’s hard to lose any child. It’s very tough to accept, she had her whole future ahead of her.” Allison died after struggling with an eating disorder and the mental health issues she endured during the past several years. She died after complications relating to those disorders, according to Frank. He said he wanted to warn others of the dangers of eating disorders and urged parents to better understand what is going on with their children, noting that some trends can have fatal consequences. “I think it’s an important thing to be aware of and recognize,” he said. “You hear about it, but you

Allison Zeppieri don’t really know it or understand it until it’s in your home. As a parent, you’re always feeling guilty that you didn’t do enough to help, because that’s your job, right? You’re always asking yourself, was there anything I could have done or did I do enough?” Allison played for a number

For there is a place within my heart, The sun will always shine through, Each time I have a thought or a memory of you.

MARSHALL, Vivian Margaret (nee Smith)

Went to be with God and to reunite with her beloved husband Jim at 4:23 a.m. on Saturday, June 27, 2015 at Humber River Hospital, Finch site, Toronto, after fighting an infection. Born in Inverness, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Vivian was the youngest of 10 children. She is survived by older sister Muriel MacKenzie and older brother Rev. Russell Smith, 6 children, 8 grandchildren, 4 greatgrandchildren, many nieces, nephews & cousins. She met her husband James at Bloor Street United Church in Toronto. They were married on May 7, 1955 & soon moved to rural Markham where they raised their family: Glenn, Paul (Edwina), Bruce (Cecilia), Brent (Linda), Kevin (Lynda) & Heather Schmidt (Lee). Vivian will be sorely missed by her grandchildren: Lynn (Mark), Daniel (Jessica), Matthew (Sarah), Danielle (Phil), Simone, Luke, Daniel and Gabriel, and her great-grandchildren: Natalie, Alec, Maddison & Sophie. Vivian’s cherry pie, pumpkin pie, cookies, cakes & warm smile best epitomized her innate sense of hospitality. Some 20 years ago, she and Jim moved to the peaceful hamlet of Cedar Valley, where they were faithful members of Vivian Baptist Church for over a decade. She struggled with several health issues over the years, but she will always be affectionately remembered as a woman of deep faith, love, caring, generosity, determination & compassion. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Salvation Army would be appreciated. Friends may called at the Roadhouse & Rose Funeral Home, 157 Main Street South, Newmarket for visitation on Thursday, July 2, 2015 from 7 to 9 p.m. and on Friday, July 3, 2015 from 10 a.m. - 11 a.m. followed by a Celebration of Life Service on Friday, July 3, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. Interment at Churchill Cemetery, Stouffville.
