OH, CANADA! Unanimous: no audit for Altmann

ENTERTAINMENT

BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

In a unanimous decision, the three-member compliance audit committee voted to reject a forensic audit application of Mayor Justin Altmann’s financial statements relating to the 2014 election campaign. Committee chairperson Ron Colucci, a CPA by trade, who has served on compliance audit committees since 2010, noted his appreciation Monday for the application coming forward, however, throughout the hearing, he also shut down some of the arguments Whitchurch-Stouffville resident Ian Hilton wanted investigated. “For me, you haven’t met the burden of proof … we need to have this forensically examined,” Colucci said specifically of Altmann’s barn and Hilton’s claim the rental rate was below market rental value. “For us to reach a conclusion for a compliance audit, we need a little bit more than just speculation,” Colucci told Hilton partway through the hearing that lasted just over 90 minutes. It was held in the council chambers at the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville offices, which were filled with Altmann supporters. “It was hurtful but at the same time, it shows I have my integrity, I’m honest,” Altmann told The Sun-Tribune. Also sitting on the committee was Torontobased lawyer Robert Freedman and former Town of Whitby clerk and current member of various audit committees Paul Jones.

Medallists Karen Cockburn (right) and Rosie MacLennan accept congratulations from Pan Am Games’ fans.

Medal has Karen thinking Rio BY MICHAEL HAYAKAWA


mhayakawa@yrmg.com

Karen Cockburn could not have asked for more after jumping and somersaulting to a bronze medal in the women’s trampoline competition at the 2015 Pan American Games at the Toronto Coliseum Sunday. Especially since the 34-yearold Stouffville resident and threetime Olympic medallist had just three months of serious training after incurring a broken ankle last November while training in preparation for the world championships in Daytona, Florida in November. It also filled a void of sorts after she was forced to withdraw from competing in the finals at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico due to an illness. She probably would have medalled. “I was hoping to make the podium here (in Toronto),” Cockburn said Monday. “It’s awesome.” Making Cockburn’s performance even more satisfying was Saturday’s qualifications in which she

placed first. While that placement did not count towards Sunday’s final routine, which saw her long-time SkyRiders Club mate and King City resident Rosie MacLennan take the coveted gold medal after being sixth in qualifying, it allowed Cockburn to be the final competitor.

‘That crazy’ Citing the long wait can be advantageous in allowing the judges to save room for better performances, but at the same place added pressure after watching your rivals compete and endure what feels like a long period, Cockburn drew from her past experiences of being in that situation to put forth an effort deemed worthy by the judges to reach the podium with a final score of 51.560. “These experiences help you for the Olympics,” she said. “It’s always a learning experience. “I actually performed better in the qualifier than in the final. But I’m still happy with the bronze.” As an added bonus, Cockburn

said to reach the podium with her good friend MacLennan, who recorded a gold-medal score of 53.560, was even more enjoyable. “To be up there (on the podium) with Rosie made it even more special,” she said. What might have also spurred Cockburn in her comeback was the support from those in attendance. Having competed in her early days before just a handful of people to these games with a near packed house that was quite vocal was a bit overwhelming for Cockburn. “I didn’t expect it to be that crazy,” she said. “It was insane. Just to see how far the sport has come to have that many fans in attendance, it was awesome.” Cockburn receives plenty of inspiration from her daughter whenever she takes to the trampoline. “She (Emilie) is sitting right above the judges, so I get to see her little face watching me. I’m going to cry. And it just means everything,” See COCKBURN, page 12.

Premium Value Everyday!

There are not many people who can lay claim to winning a softball world championship and Pan American Games gold medal in the same year. To be more precise, within weeks of each other. But Paul Koert, 36, and Andy Skelton, 28, can proudly proclaim they were a part of that select group. The two Stouffville residents played vital roles in helping Canada capture the WBSC Men’s World Softball Championship title in Saskatoon earlier this month and the Pan Am Games gold medal. They went undefeated during the Pan Ams that culminated with a dramatic 2-1 win over Venezuela in the final before a jampacked pro-Canadian crowd on a hot, sultry Saturday afternoon at the President’s Choice Ajax Pan Am Ballpark. “It’s pretty awesome, it’s amazing,” said Skelton, who saw duty as a designated hitter and pitcher, recording two of Canada’s wins on the rubber. “Now Canada is back on top of the softball world.” “It sure feels pretty good,” added Koert, a veteran left-handed pitcher who made his national team debut in 1997 with the junior squad and has been with the men’s team on and off since. “We’ve solidified our position in the softball world in winning gold.” This month’s Pan American gold-medal run extended Canada’s streak to eight consecutive in men’s softball. The sport made its return to the Games this year after last appearing in 2003 — Canada has won all eight gold medals handed out at the event. Skelton felt a big part of their success stemmed from what they accomplished at the world championships, where the team won its first gold medal in that event since 1992. That began to fuel momentum for the team and showed what the

Along with that, Koert felt another important ingredient was in their mental approach entering the Games just days after winning the world championship. See KOERT, page 12.

ROYALE FACIAL TISSUES

Union protests at Liberal golf event Some golfers taking part in the Ontario Liberal party’s annual golf tournament in Whitchurch-Stouffville Monday morning missed their tee times because of the hundreds of public sector workers protesting. The annual tournament was held at Warden Avenue’s Emerald Hills Golf Club. The cost was $3,400 per foursome. The OPSEU members were handing out information detailing the “folly” of the Ontario government’s privatization campaign, according to a media release. “At a number approaching $3 billion,

this government has spent a fortune on the Pan Am Games, but when it comes to public services and their own employees, they say there’s no money,” said OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas in a media release. “Sport is about fairness and quality public services are the fairest game in town.” Thomas had a clear message for the Premier and her foursomes. “Wherever these fundraisers occur, you can expect OPSEU to join the tour.” – Sandra Bolan

Time for another party – this time with medals

L

et’s party. And we’re not only talking about the supporters of Mayor Justin Altmann who are celebrating a win in town council chambers Monday. (See story on front page.) We’ve got international sporting victories to mark. Five Whitchurch-Stouffville athletes have medalled during the Pan American Games being staged in the GTA this month. That’s at last count. Softball players Paul Koert and Andy Skelton added gold medals Saturday to the world championship they captured in Saskatchewan last month. Koert’s a homegrown stud pitcher who starred on many a Stouffville boys’ team. Make that former fireballer. Now a dad himself, he pulled a move out of a movie script and retired after the medal ceremony last weekend. Skelton’s also a hurler, but younger and a more recent addition to Stouffville. He’ll keep playing. The weekend was topped with Karen Cockburn bouncing back from injury to win bronze in trampoline. She, too, has adopted this as her home. (See their stories and photographs on pages 1 and 3.) Last week, Ninth Line equestrian centre owner Belinda Trussell won a silver as a member of the Canadian dressage team. Gormley’s Lisa Sanders struck gold with her synchronized swimming teammates on the first full day of competition. There could be another medal out of Gormley if Jenna Caira and her softball teammates continue to play well in Ajax. They were 2-1 entering action last night. Medals will be awarded this weekend. It’s all worthy of a celebration, don’t you think? It wasn’t that long ago we feted Ontario Minor Hockey

Off The Top with Jim Mason Association championship teams with a ride through town on a fire truck. For health and safety reasons, the trek atop a truck became a parade along Main Street – with the kids on foot. Other sporting champions have been celebrated in front of family and friends with ceremonies in the council chambers. That’s fine, but in comparison, there is no comparison. All these championships of the Americas this month are mega for a town of this size. I know we’re Canadians, modest by nature and not normally as showy as our neighbours to the south. It’s time to end that kind of thinking. Let’s do it up right, eh, Stouffville? Thursday nights look good on everyone’s calendars, judging by the Food Truck Frenzy turnouts. Let’s honour our Pan Am athletes and their families, plus the Games’ officials, torch bearers and volunteers from our community. Were you one of the hundreds in Memorial Park last month when Cockburn ran the Games’ torch up to the new bandstand stage? Let’s do it again, only this time with medals, WhitchurchStouffville. Jim Mason is editor of The Sun-Tribune. Follow him on Twitter @stouffeditor

Encore for Food Truck Frenzy?

I

f you feed them, they will come. Anna Rose, Stouffville’s creative downtown co-ordinator has again proved this so. For a second time, our Main Street, from Park Drive to Mill Street, was packed with people. Last Thursday evening’s Food Truck Frenzy crowd, estimated at 17,000, resulted in lengthy lineups at most of the 32 food vendors including 29 trucks and vans. This was double the number of eating establishments and twice the count of consumers during the previous Frenzy — the first ever in Stouffville. While Rose served as the event’s chief organizer, she enjoyed able assistance from town staff including workers in the department of leisure and community services. “I’ll be here to the end,” said Joseph Chemell, a threeyear municipal employee. He and six others kept the road and sidewalks litter-free. Mayor Justin Altmann, along with several councilors, walked the two-block route, greeting old friends and welcoming newcomers. “I’m loving it,” said Victoria Brown of Markham. “Lots of food options,” said Lenny and Punita Laurier, also of Markham, “really nice”. “So many friendly people,” agreed Michelle Guo of North York, “great food, too”. “Wonderful food and good company, what could be better?” asked Kelly Banville of Stouffville. Delightful music added to the venue including the lyrical voice of Stouffville’s Sam Barry. “I love this town,” said the former Toronto resident, “I never want to leave.” Rose says she’s considering more of the same, maybe in October.

Roaming Around with Jim Thomas

Back-yard zoo It’s been a summer like no other at 381 Rupert Avenue. Thanks to an enhanced feeding selection, our backyard has been regularly filled with birds — birds of all sizes and colours. Wild animals, too. From early morning ‘til late at night, they keep coming. Even after the bewitching hour of 12, I know they’re out there. I can see their shadows in the trees and grass while I’m endeavouring to grab a few winks of air-conditioned sleep under a spreading maple. This possibly explains the reason I’m frequently dead tired the next day. While most folks are in snooze land, I’m staring at the stars. Because nights so far this summer have been unusually cool, my slumbers outside have been short-lived. Added to this is the fact the protective leaves are much like a leaky umbrella when heavy dew descends. An unexpected shower forces a quick retreat. Each spring during the past 56 years I’ve promised myself a tent. However, previous camping experiences have proved so calamitous I’m afraid to take a chance. With my luck, a curious skunk could seek refuge

between the sheets, hardly a compatible relationship. Element exposure aside, this month’s encounter with Mother Nature has been one for the books. Never have I enjoyed so great a variety of feathered friends. And it’s all due to finally finding a food formula that suits my birds of choice. Animals also. Striped sunflower seed is popular with everything on two wings and four feet. A finch and Nyjer seed mix is best for smaller birds. Both are readily available in bulk at Schell’s Country Market or Bulk Barn and in bags at Petvalu. A sprinkling of unshelled peanuts is popular with blue jays if unwelcomed grackles don’t gobble them up first. We have two feeders, one with a balance beam that, if properly adjusted will benefit cardinals but snub starlings. The other is for goldfinch, chickadees and song sparrows. Squirrels consume leftovers on the ground. Cardinals, the most beautiful of all our birds, time their arrivals to shortly after sunrise and just before sunset. While stays are brief, they’ll return again and again if seed supplies are sufficient. The same goes for blue jays. Finch are less patient but still persistent, willing to jockey for limited positions. Raccoons, mainly night prowlers, are shy but tenacious. We satisfy their needs with liberal helpings of bread, doughnuts and bagels. A regularly re-filled bird bath satisfies their drinking needs. That’s my Audubon report for 2015. Should something rare like an eagle or an ostrich stop by, I’ll let you know. Jim Thomas is a Stouffville resident who has written for area newspapers for more than 60 years.


Mayor, accountant deserved better Re: Residents want mayor audited; Altmann denies any wrongdoing, July 9, and Unanimous: no audit for Altmann, July 23. The Sun-Tribune has reached a new low in reporting. I have never written a letter to the editor before, but your unbalanced and poorly crafted article on the front page of the paper has me startled and angry. Stouffville residents are quoted and the quotes are presented as factual, saying, “a disregard and disdain for the rule of law” and “feels that laws do not apply to him”, and “Altmann’s financial statements are off by $8,000 to $10,000” and “I find difficulty with the way the man does business”. Not one of these statements is based on fact or knowledge, merely speculation. Your paper printed this drivel. A proper reporting would have said these two residents believe these things and have asked for an independent audit, which is certainly within their right. I am a chartered accountant with 37 years experience. I grew up in Stouffville and was taught honesty and hard work in a town that valued helping each other and working together. I performed an audit on Altmann’s campaign finances. I know beyond doubt they are definitely not “off” by any number even close to the amounts quoted. The Municipal Elections Act requires all candidates’ auditors use the same report. That was not reported. I have examined every single transaction recorded in the mayor’s campaign records. The Sun-Tribune didn’t contact me for my response to any of these allegations. Anyone who cares about this town would realize what a great job the mayor is doing. He attends virtually every public event possible, works tirelessly seven days a week and is trying to gain a complete understanding of all the facets of our fantastic home town. Altmann is a young man, inexperienced in politics, but obviously willing to learn and take advice. Yes, he has made some mistakes and will in all likelihood make more. I, for one, am very excited about what he has done so far in the first nine months of office. There have been many changes in the town office in recent months, thanks in huge part to his resolve and effort. Keep it up, Justin. I applaud your integrity and hard work.

I wonder if some drivers think, when leaving Stouffville, “I’m going to turn left at Leslie Street, so I’d better get into the left lane now.” I have recently driven in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Wales England and Scotland and I truly think there are more stop signs in Stouffville than in any of those countries. And I never saw a four-way stop. The Brownsberger plan for smooth-flowing traffic would start with removing all stop signs. According to Ruby, we’re treating them like yields anyway. At a T intersection, the ending road would get a yield sign. At a four corners, the less travelled road would get yield signs. In Ireland the yield triangle is painted on the pavement. In England, a broken line just before a stop line indicates a yield situation. Of course, all of these countries have many more roundabouts. In Ontario, we seem to be bent on “traffic calming”. The countries mentioned above are more interested in getting people home and their engines shut off. In Australia, town speed limits are 60 km/h, all rural roads are 100, even the narrow twisty ones and controlled access motorways are 110. I have 10 stop signs between my home and Schell Lumber, a distance of 1.8 km. or 11 blocks. Ho hum!

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Library expansion not large enough, councillor tells colleagues BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

“Finally, something is happening,” CAO Marc Pourvahidi told The Sun-Tribune Wednesday, the morning after town council decided to go ahead with a new design for the library/leisure centre expansion. The project still requires other approvals from council before a shovel goes in the ground. Once complete, the WhitchurchStouffville Public Library is expected to be approximately 34,600 gross square feet in size, which is “a lot more than what they asked for,” Pourvahidi told The Sun-Tribune. The space will serve a population beyond the 55,000 anticipated

by 2021, he said. The current library is 15,425 gross square feet and that does not include the approximately 300 square feet of storage space in the basement of the Silver Jubilee and the roughly 1,000 square feet of large multipurpose room space the library regularly utilizes, he said. The library requires more collection space, in particular for its audiobooks, DVDs, CDs, tablet and leisure reading, according to the library board. Also requested are study areas, a seminar room and children and teen areas. Carolyn Nordheimer James, CEO of the library, was not available for comment.

Councillor Maurice Smith was the only one to oppose the expansion, citing the 18,600 gross square foot expansion was not enough.

seniors to 6240 main, gallery The building’s expansion also includes space for the Latcham Gallery, a new fitness area, indoor playground and a new child minding/preschool program room. The expansion will likely be on the southeast side of the current building, according to Pourvahidi. The total cost is estimated at $12,825,000 plus HST and a 10-percent contingency. The true cost will not be known until the project goes to market,

The CAO also said the space will be suitable for the seniors for about eight years. The final design for the expanded leisure centre/library is expected to go before council this fall. The cost will be put into the 2016 budget, which is scheduled to be deliberated in late January, which will enable construction to begin in February with completion slated for spring of 2017, according to Pourvahidi.

Mayor Justin Altmann at his inaugural golf tournament at the Maples of Ballantrae yesterday. The charity event continues today.

‘I have my integrity’: Mayor From page 1.

Hilton told The Sun-Tribune it was “disappointing” but “it was a worthwhile process to go through.” What he hopes will become a positive outcome from this will be updated municipal bylaws regarding elections. Even though the committee rejected a forensic audit, there is an option for Hilton to appeal, which Colucci noted would cost him money. Hilton told The Sun-Tribune Tuesday he will not be filing an appeal. Tom Winters, who ran in Ward 5 this past election, supported Hilton’s initial request, but will also not appeal the decision. Winters lost to Iain Lovatt, who was the only current councillor sitting in the gallery Monday morning. Winters accepted the decision, but told The Sun-Tribune he wished the committee would have delved deeper into some of the issues. The session became somewhat personal, as at one time Winters and Altmann were friends. “The man that I’ve known since I was 16, the man who stabbed me in the back, who said very offensive things,” Altmann said of Winters during the hearing. Following the decision, Altmann told The Sun-Tribune he understands everyone has the right to ask for an audit, but he just wished Winters and Hilton would have first asked to see his financial records. “It was hurtful but at the same time, it

shows I have my integrity, I’m honest,” Altmann told The Sun-Tribune. He now wants to get back to doing his job — being mayor. That includes hosting his first golf tournament at The Maples of Ballantrae yesterday and today. Hilton based his application partly on Altmann’s financial statements, which were audited by James Wilson, a local CPA with almost 40 years of experience. “…I did perform the audit and I did report according to the Municipal Act, exactly the way it is supposed to be worded,” he told the committee. “I looked at every single expense, every single revenue. … I have looked at every single detail and his theory that (Altmann’s) account doesn’t add up by $8,000 to $10,000 is offensive.” The committee is shared by all municipalities in York Region, except Markham. Three other applications for compliance audits have come before the committee following last fall’s election. Richmond Hill Councillor Greg Beros will face a compliance audit for his election expenses related to last year’s municipal election, the committee ruled last week. His campaign finances should be investigated, as he may have breached the Municipal Act when he used public funds to mail a flyer during a time period when candidates were forbidden to do so, the committee ruled. Audit requests in Vaughan and Newmarket were also rejected. – with files from Kim Zarzour

Cockburn eyes Olympics

OBITUARY

5964 Main St, Stouffville 905-640-1610, www.gileschev.ca www.facebook.com/gileschevrolet

she said Sunday. Based on her performance, Cockburn is satisfied that it lays a solid foundation going forward in her quest to participate in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. “Considering what I’ve been through this year, I’m super happy,” she said. “I was happy that I had two strong, solid days of performing. “With only a few months of training, this is definitely huge to build on from here.” Next on Cockburn’s competitive itinerary will be a trip to Calgary this weekend for the national championships. Currently ranked second among Canadian women trampolinists behind MacLennan, Cockburn said she intends to execute the same routine from the Pan Am Games. To do that, Cockburn feels she must maintain her high ranking and be among the top four Canadian competitors who would go on to compete at a World Cup event in France in October and the world championships to be held in Denmark in November. “I have to hit on a lot of things,” she said in leading up to the nationals. “I want to have a clean performance and to be consistent. If I can do that I can be on the team.”

Koert retires a champion From page 3.

Citing they had the talent on the field to compete with any team at the Games, Koert felt one danger could have been in getting too emotionally high after winning the world championship. To do that might have led to being overconfident entering the Pan Am Games. The end result appeared to show such was not the case. “We had to put a back seat to winning the world championship,” Koert said. “Going forward, we had to refocus to winning (the Pan Am Games gold medal). If you get caught up in the moment of the world championship, you could be in trouble and we did a good job of doing just that.” As for winning the daily double, the world championship and Pan Am Games gold medals, Koert and Skelton agreed it does not get any better.

‘The pinnacle’ In fact, it would be difficult for anyone to duplicate that feat, especially in the short timeframe. “After winning the world championships and Pan Am Games titles, everything is kind of gravy after that,” said Skelton, who will play for his Scarborough club team at the ASA Championships in Ashland, Ohio and ISC Worlds in South Bend, Ind. “This (world championship and Pan Am Games) is definitely the pinnacle of everyone’s career at this point.” For Koert, winning both titles represented a fitting way to end his storied career. He said he would retire if it all came together. “This is it for me,” he said. “There’s no other way you can end your career with a double gold within a month. I made a commitment to my family. I’ve got a six-week-old, newborn son who I want to spend more time with.”

O

ne August evening in 1932, May Donoghue, a 30-year-old mother of four who lived just outside of Glasgow, went to a café with her friend. May was treated to a “Scotsman ice cream float,” which is a mixture of ice cream and ginger beer. After May drank some of her float, she noticed a decomposed snail had poured out of the ginger beer bottle. She became ill and was later diagnosed with gastroenteritis, attributed to the snail. She sued the company that produced the beer and claimed £500 in damages. The law, as it stood, was against her. The beer company’s

lawyers relied on a wellestablished legal defense: May had no right to sue the beer company because she did not buy the bottle of beer directly from the manufacturer and therefore had no contract. They even had a case with similar facts to support them. The court had recently held that the beer company was not responsible when a dead mouse was found in its beer bottle. To quote Mr. Bumble in Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist, “If the law supposes that, then the law is an ass, an idiot!” Undeterred, May’s lawyers took her case all the way to the highest court, the House of Lords, arguing what is now unquestioned: a company should be held legally responsible if, through its negligence, its product causes harm to any consumer, not just those with contracts. After two days of argument, the House of Lords agreed that May had a right to sue the beer company for negligence, with or without a contract. The court stated “the rule that you are to love your neighbour becomes in law, you must not injure your neighbour”. Who is your neighbour? Anyone you reasonably expect that may be injured by your negligence. As intuitive as this outcome seems in retrospect, at the time it was groundbreaking. Before Donoghue, a person’s ability to sue

for personal injuries was hampered by a rigid set of archaic legal rules that conspired to prevent injured people from receiving compensation. Donoghue created a new general right for injured people to seek justice, and the case continues to serve as a foundational precedent in the field of personal injury law. Donoghue also demonstrates how lawyers who are prepared to take difficult cases to trial can make a positive difference for society as a whole. May was fortunate to have found a group of principled lawyers like that. After all, May could not afford to pay legal fees, and even swore an affidavit stating, “I am very poor. I am not worth five pounds in all the world.” At Boland Howe, we are most proud of our trial decisions that have changed the law for the better, such as: •making Ontario winter motorists safer, by causing winter road patrolling regulations to be improved (Thornhill v. Shadid); •expanding access to compensation for good Samaritans (Pelletier v. O.P.P.); •ensuring that landlords cannot contract out of their maintenance obligations with residential tenants (Taylor v. Allen); •forcing municipalities to pay more attention to poorly designed roadways (Roycroft v. Kyte).

PERSONAL INJURY LAW


Stouffville Sun-Tribune | Thursday, July 23, 2015 |

By Sandra Bolan

sbolan@yrmg.com

Not moving into the town hall is disappointing, but Joan Doble, treasurer of the Whitchurch-Stouffville Food Bank, is not worried. “I have prayed about this. … I have a good feeling about it, something will come up. The Lord has a better place for us,” she told The Sun-Tribune Wednesday morning. “I’m sure that something is going to come up and we’ll be much happier,” she said. Whitchurch-Stouffville council had four options to consider to fill the empty warehouse space of the Sandiford Drive building. Town staff did not recommend one over the other. One option was to house the food bank, as well as create multipurpose space. That option, along with others that would have had WhiStle Radio occupy space, was also shot down in favour of it being used solely for multipurpose and community space. The town is short 12,000 square feet of multipurpose space, according to Rob Raycroft, director of leisure and community services. Town staff will, however, work with the food bank board to find space either within its own inventory or in facilities owned by third parties. Mayor Justin Altmann did not agree with council’s decision. “I believe that is the best fit,” he said Tuesday night of the town hall. “For 25 years, these people have not asked for a cent from this town, they have been the best damn partners in this town,” he said. In explaining why he opposed housing the food bank in the town hall, Councillor Hugo

Kroon stated he had “concerns of potential, for let’s say, interaction of this facility and the food bank facility.” Doug McIntyre, who has been working with the food bank board to find a new home, told council the board members have already figured that out and have established some pretty tight rules. “I’m not afraid of letting anyone into our building,” said Altmann, who admitted he is a former client of the food bank. The food bank currently has a number of rooms in the basement of Churchill Community Church, north of Musselman’s Lake, that equate to about 1,400 square feet – about the same as the proposed space in the town hall. But the town hall layout would have enabled the food bank volunteers to make better use of the space, according to McIntyre. Ideally, he admitted, the food bank would like 2,500 to 3,000 square feet of space. Councillor Rob Hargrave suggested the parks’ depot in Memorial Park as an option. It has about 1,600 square feet. It is being used, but can be looked into, Raycroft said. The town hall’s empty warehouse space will be turned into storage lockers for town and community group use. There will also be 2,190 square feet of multipurpose space for community and town programming and a 484-square-foot board room for town use. “I don’t think multipurpose rooms help lives,” Altmann said, who was notably frustrated with the final decision. The estimated cost is $1.2 million. An additional $117,520 will be spent on renovating the south parking lot to create 25 parking spots.

Ribfest serving up barbecue, beers – and alligator? BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

Pork, beef, baby back, dry rubbed or wet. A slow-cooked, southern style barbecue takes over Memorial Park Aug. 7 to 9 for the third annual Stouffville Country Ribfest. About 22,000 descended upon the park over three days last year, which is more than double the number of attendees in 2013, according to Joan Crosbie, manager of culture and community services for the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville. Three of the four ribbers are returning

– Texas Rangers, Sticky Fingers and Bone Daddy’s. New to the lineup is Uncle Sam’s. “We figure until the event grows much, much larger, we’ll stick with the four (ribbers),” Crosbie said. A number of non-rib offerings have been tweaked in order to help reduce the redundancy of french fry and poutine vendors, according to Crosbie. This year, there will be fries, along with donuts, bloomin’ onions, beaver tails and one vendor will be serving up alligator. “We’re billing our ribfest as a family-

friendly event, so we want to provide a wide variety,” Crosbie said. The craft brewers are back — Mill Street Brewery, Stouffville Brewing Company and King Brewery. Joining them this year is Old Flame Brewing Company. “We want good brewers on board. We want good in general, but I feel it’s important to highlight the local brewers,” Crosbie said. Based on feedback from last year, organizers are offering an alternative to beer — wine, from Gallucci Winery. The children’s area will be expanded and

include a spring-free trampoline. There will once again be hot air balloon rides on the Saturday night. Rockers Accoustica will provide music on Friday night. Saturday night’s entertainment will have a country/pop vibe with The Little White Lies and local bands will take to the stage Sunday afternoon. Admission into Ribfest is free. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Aug. 7 and 8 and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Aug. 9. For more information, go to http:// stouffvillecountryribfest.com

Jason Hathaway is getting accustomed to making trips to the victory podium in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series. For the fourth time in five outings, the Stouffville-based EHR/Team Three Red driver earned a top three placing after he drove the WSSL Auto Parta/Raybestos Chev to a secondplace finish at the Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway in Saskatoon last week. Winner Scott Steckly moved into first place in the overall series standings with 247 points. Hathaway is in second place with 243. The series resumes with the Lucas Oil 250 at Autodrome St Eustache, north of Montreal Saturday.

Spirit ices prospects in summer league

Stouffville Sun-Tribune | Thursday, July 23, 2015 |

BY MICHAEL HAYAKAWA

mhayakawa@yrmg.com

While the Stouffville Spirit’s primary objective is to skate off with the Ontario Junior Hockey League championship, they have taken their off-season time to be actively involved in a new league project. It’s one they hope will enhance their club this season and in the future through their participation in the Development League. Launched in May under direction of the OJHL, the league is comprised of four entries including the Spirit, Cobourg Cougars, Whitby Fury and a fourth entry operated by three other clubs. “It was started to serve as a development and at the same time, a scouting league for future players for the OJHL,” said Kenny Burrows, Spirit co-owner and general manager. The Spirit entry had three 15-year-old players, six who were 16 and seven 17 year olds. From this roster, which reached the final before being downed by the Cobourg entry 5-3 in Saturday’s final, Burrows hopes they

can bring in four to six new prospects for main training camp next month. “After that we would like to make it four or five,” he added. Players received a baptism of sorts in experiencing what a Jr. A hockey environment is all about, Burrows said. That includes practising once a week and playing one game per week. During the practice sessions, an emphasis was placed on individual skill development rather than team-related activities. Off the ice, he added each player has an opportunity to select a couple of sticks. Equipment such as tape, was provided before each game and practices. A full-time athletic therapist was on site. “To a young player, these are big things that mean a lot to them,” Burrows said. “It’s my hope to see four more teams added next year to bring the total to eight,” he said. The OJHL is hoping it leads to the creation of a Showcase Weekend to attract collegiate and major junior A scouts, said Burrows, who is also North-East director of the OJHL.

Millard was always first to volunteer

BY LISA QUEEN

lqueen@yrmg.com

A

nyone looking for volunteers never had to look further than the raised hand of M. Paul Millard. When his sons, Jim and Mark, were boys, he was cubmaster with the 2nd Newmarket Cubs and later volunteered with the 1st Newmarket Scouts under the leadership of Jim Nuttall, who was named Ontario Senior of the Year in 2012 for his six decades of community service. Nothing unusual about that, parents often get involved with their kids’ activities. But Millard’s community spirit didn’t end there. In addition to being an active member of the Upper Canada Chordsmen a cappella chorus, he volunteered on the Elman W. Campbell Museum board, the Friends of the Museum, the Newmarket Historical Society and Heritage Newmarket. “He was always taking on jobs. So, when he was with the Chordsmen, he wasn’t just there, he was the money guy, he was the treasurer,” Jim said, adding his father was honoured with awards from the town and the province for his volunteerism. Millard, who died at the age of 85 on Sept. 4, 2012, came by his interest in history honestly, having belonged to one of Newmarket’s most renowned families. His great-great-great-great grandfather was Timothy Millard, who moved to Newmarket in 1792,

Millard’s son Jim said. “He was not a (United) Empire Loyalist because by the time he got here, he’s a Quaker. He was forcibly emigrated from Pennsylvania,” he said. “He came and got his 200 acres (granted by the government to Loyalists) for services rendered during the American Revolution. There is some indication he probably fought on both sides, which really wasn’t that unusual.”

‘He had some interesting hobbies. He was a rock hound. He would go digging for rocks.’ Several streets in Newmarket’s core are named after the Millard family, including Millard Avenue, which was originally the lane leading from Yonge Street to the family farm, Timothy Street and John Street. Jim and his brother grew up in a home at 100 Roxborough Rd., which had served as bachelor officers’ quarters during the Second World War. Millard himself grew up on a family farm in the Cooksville area of Mississauga. He married his wife, Joyce, in 1951 and a few years later, the couple headed off on an adventure. “They were ahead of the curve in a lot of respects,” Jim said of his parents. “They liked travelling. They both quit their jobs and they went

hitchhiking across Europe for six months in 1954 or something like that.” The couple settled in Winnipeg before moving to Newmarket in 1963 when Millard was hired as the credit manager of the Office Specialty Manufacturing Company. After he was laid off in the mid1970s, Millard joined his wife as a real estate agent for about five years before becoming a professional baker, first running a franchise called Bakerman and later opening his own bakery called the Breadman in the Quaker Hill Plaza at Yonge and William Roe Boulevard. “We did breads and pies. A lot of what we did, like butter tarts and that, was the family recipes,” Jim said. Millard retired and the bakery closed in 1990. In addition to volunteering, he liked to keep busy with other pursuits. “He had some interesting hobbies. He was a rock hound. He would go digging for rocks. It could be like semi-precious stones or whatever,” Jim said. “We would go up north and we camped. That is what we did when my parents went on holidays. We went camping and for the two weeks or whatever, we collected rocks.” Millard was also casted and painted model soldiers and liked cooking. What does Jim miss most about his dad? “Probably the stories. He told

“Adored by children, universally respected and an inspiration to her peers, Mrs. McCluskey was a tireless volunteer, quick to deflect the praise heaped on her.”
