Plans for Ballantrae sports dome fizzle BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

The Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville has terminated its lease agreement with the Ballantrae Sport Dome Group. The decision, based on a town staff recommendation, was made without discussion during Tuesday afternoon’s council meeting. In 2013, the group, headed up by Benita

Home is where the coverage is.

Vandenberg and her business partners, got approval from council to construct a dome over the municipal tennis courts along with permission to build a new 1,200-square-foot tennis clubhouse in the Ballantrae Community Park. The private-public partnership would have seen the tennis courts in the Aurora Road park open all year round.

Town staff will now begin the RFP process so construction can get underway this fall or in early 2016. There are no plans for the town to take over construction of the dome. “Should this or another group wish to pursue a tennis bubble in the future, staff would See SMITH, page 10.

Toronto police have charged 11 people — including a Stouffville teenager — after a months-long investigation into a string of TTC collection booth robberies dubbed “Project Castle”. Police say that between March 3 and May 28, five TTC booths were robbed at gunpoint. They launched an investigation into the crimes, comparing them with other robberies and staking out locations over the course of what TTC CEO Andy Byford calls a “long and painstaking investigation”. On July 23, 10 search warrants were executed in dwellings across the city, and 11 people were arrested. In total, it is believed the group is responsible for 12 armed robberies. Also robbed were a convenience store, Tim Hortons and gas station and a Scotiabank. Jonathan Pileggi, 18, of Stouffville is one of 11 people facing more than 140 charges, from conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, to armed robbery and theft over $5,000, along with a number of related firearms offences. – Torstar News Service

Only 0.2 per cent separated Stouffville District Secondary School’s top three graduates. Andrew Dunsmoor and Helen Zhu both graduated with 95 per cent averages, while Kopica Thayaparen finished high school with a 94.8 per cent overall average. “I’m not naturally smart, but I work for my smartness,” Thayaparen, 17, said. Another key to Thayaparen’s academic success was taking courses she was passionate about, such as life sciences, but in particular, biology. Thayaparen heads to McMaster University this September, majoring in integrated sciences, which isn’t exactly what she was planning on doing five years ago. In 2010, the then-Grade 7 Harry Bowes Public School student told

In high school, Thayaparen was on the student council, in the science club and on the prom committee. She also worked part-time at a fertility clinic in Markham as a receptionist. “I’m pretty sure there are other parties I can go to, but your marks are a one-shot thing,” Thayaparen said of the sacrifices she made to get her grades. Just edging out Thayaparen from the top spot was Dunsmoor, 17, whose goal was to graduate with a 95 per cent average so he

Like Thayaparen, his averages remained in the 90s all through high school. Dunsmoor’s final year, however, was two years in the making. In Grade 11 he took Grade 12 English because it’s the “most intensive course with the most work to do. If I could do well in this class, I could do well in any class.” He finished with a 94 per cent average. But it wasn’t all about hitting the books. Dunsmoor was in the science club, on the improv team and on the music council, as well as in the band. Along with being the class of 2015’s top grad, Dunsmoor won the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville proficiency award and the Frank Yake Legion award. “It’s nice to move on from high school,” he said.

Crash sends motorcyclist to trauma centre Seniors, library ready to move into expanded locations By Sandra Bolan

sbolan@yrmg.com

A motorcyclist was in serious condition following a collision with a vehicle Saturday afternoon in Ballantrae. The incident occurred shortly after 1 p.m. A 39-year-old woman from Stouffville was driving northbound on Hwy. 48 when she made a left turn into a private driveway. The southbound motorcyclist was unable to avoid the vehicle as it crossed

in front of him. He struck its passenger side. The 38-year-old male rider was thrown from the motorcycle and sustained serious injuries, according to the OPP. He was transported to a local hospital then flown to a trauma centre, according to OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt. The highway was closed for about threeand-a-half hours Saturday afternoon, while OPP officers investigated. Charges have not been laid, Schmidt said. The driver of the other vehicle was uninjured.

Moving to 6240 Main St. works out just fine for the 55+ Club, according to its president Pat Ogston. The seniors are currently in Latcham Hall but the large, single room doesn’t allow for multiple programs to take place simultaneously, she said. The Main Street location, which currently houses the Latcham Gallery and a multipurpose room, will alleviate that problem and enable the seniors to branch out in their programming, according to Ogston. “For right now, it’s more than what we have,” she said. The gallery will move to the leisure centre as part of its expansion. Ogston and the 55+ Club board members toured 6240 Main St. and “they loved it,” she said. However, it was not unanimous. Past president Wilf Morley told The Sun-Tribune last week “it’s a better situation than Latcham Hall and it will serve our needs now” but not in the future. Morley said he is disappointed council has no plan for the 55+ Club going forward. “We’ll put you there and we’ll deal with it later,” the former town councillor said.

In April, Morley told The Sun-Tribune the group, which has more than 500 members, requires 20,000 square feet of space. 6240 Main St. is 7,000 square feet. The seniors are hoping to have use of the Main Street building’s multipurpose room before their anticipated move-in date of 2017. The leisure centre’s expansion also includes the Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library. It will be expanded to roughly 34,000 gross square feet. There was confusion at last week’s council meeting during which the library’s president Lloyd Pinnock was under the belief the expansion would result in roughly 32,000 gross square feet. Once he heard the new numbers, from The Sun-Tribune, he was happy. “We need to bring closure to this and get it done,” Pinnock said, noting expansion talks have been going on since 2008. “The bottom line is we just want a facility that will make the residents of Stouffville comfortable and happy,” Pinnock said. “The board is prepared to work with town council,” he said. – Sandra Bolan

PUBLIC NOTICE TRANSPORT CANADA PROPOSED REGULATIONS FOR THE FEDERALLY-OWNED PICKERING LANDS On June 11, 2013, the Government of Canada announced a responsible and balanced approach for developing the federally-owned Pickering Lands. This approach sets aside land for a potential future airport and the creation of Rouge National Urban Park. To update the current airport site designation and to replace the current Pickering Airport Site Zoning Regulations, Transport Canada is now following a regulatory process to: • Declare a smaller portion of the Pickering Lands an airport site, as defined in the Aeronautics Act, subsection 5.4(1); and • Propose Pickering Airport Site Zoning Regulations, under the Aeronautics Act, subsection 5.4(2). These regulations aim to protect the new, smaller Pickering Airport site for future aviation needs, by ensuring land use and development adjacent to and in the vicinity of the airport site does not interfere with safe aircraft operations.

LETTER OF THE WEEK

Small-town newspapering: for better or for worse

Some children don’t get it

J

ake Gyllenhaal’s slimy character in Nightcrawler, took it a tad far. “I like to say that, if you’re seeing me, you’re having the worst day of your life,” Louis Bloom says in the 2014 movie that delves into the world of ambulance-chasing TV news videographers. No, I’m not adding that line to my business cards or Twitter bio. A former publisher of mine had his own spin on the role of the media. “We see people at their best and their worst,” he’d recite, usually following a complaint from a reader who was far from having their best day. Worst to first. From bloody crashes on our highways and teary appearances in courtrooms, to a different brand of crying at sports championships and award ceremonies. Four owners ago, it was mandated the editor of the then Stouffville Sun and its sister publications live in the communities they worked. No exceptions. I wasn’t sold on small-town life or its newspapering, but promised to give this job two years when I took it 33 years ago, months ahead of getting married. Knowing the dowry was a German shepherd, our next move was to find a home with a fence. And with none of the three for rent suitable, we bought the only new house for sale in Stouffville, on Spring Street, for $83,000. (Should have financed three. I know.) Then life happened. Three kids later and our third home now an empty nest, I wouldn’t have had it any other way. We have lifelong friends here, community involvements, many a memory — and a diary packed with still-to-be published tell-all stories. Still, I can see why many a small-town cop, school princi-

Off The Top with Jim Mason pal and government employee chooses to live anonymously out of town. Our elected officials don’t have that option. At times, smaller town news people are on 24/7 — even before the advent of social media and websites that require round-the-clock feeding and maintenance. Often, it’s a friendly word or news tip from a reader. But not always. I’ve been ripped in the aisles of grocery stores and churches. Taken middle-of-the-night calls from folks with slurred speech. And late-night emails from politicians who have somehow found time to add my job to their long list of responsibilities. Had fingers, literally and figuratively, poked in my chest while volunteering at a hockey game or a charity walk. All over stuff we printed — or didn’t print. Favours have been asked. “You’re not going to do a story on that, right?” Friendships have been lost or bruised. Mistakes have been made. We’re not perfect. And unlike most jobs, our work is on display weekly just like the backyard laundry — and forever in the digital world. Jim Mason is editor of The Sun-Tribune. Follow him on Twitter @stouffeditor

Some people are ignorant and some don’t care about the environment. But the other day I was walking outside to see my mom and some girl with her friends threw a glass bottle on the road. So I yelled at the girl. But she did not pick it up. So my mom and I went and cleaned it up. But before we crossed the road, some man was pulling into his driveway and my mom looked at him and mouthed, “There is glass on the road.” So after the man pulled into his driveway, all three of us cleaned it up so no dogs would get glass in their feet and so cars would not get glass in their tires. People should respect other’s property and they should protect the environment

Five Freel Lane businesses had their front doors smashed during the overnight hours of July 15. One business had cash stolen from it, while two businesses appeared to have nothing stolen and it is unknown if anything was taken from two other businesses, according to York Regional Police. In all five cases, the suspect(s) forced entry into the business by smashing the glass in the front door, according to police. Freel Lane is in downtown Stouffville, next to the Earl of Whitchurch pub. There are no suspects. – Sandra Bolan

No napping during Pastor Jim’s sermon, please

I

t’s that time of year when I don a clerical collar, (not really); stand behind a pulpit, (yes really) and deliver a state of the union address to the congregation of Stouffville’s St. James Presbyterian Church. While I skipped this tribulation in 2014, it seemed only right I should now accept the responsibility, since three other worship team members had already consented and one vacancy was yet to be filled. The reason for the void? Our minister is enjoying a well-earned vacation. My date with celestial destiny is Aug. 16. While I’ve undertaken this obligation on several previous occasions, frequency makes the task no less daunting. Preparations extending over a period of days, weeks, even months are extremely onerous. How pastors accomplish these assignments every Sabbath remains a mystery. Fortunately, wife Jean is ready, willing and able to lend a helping hand — two hands at the organ or piano. She might even consent to a vocal solo, should I suffer a

Roaming Around with Jim Thomas memory block. While well aware of the duties, the fact two predecessors performed so admirably only increases my discomfort. They addressed their audiences like full-fledged graduates of Knox College. No hesitations. No gaffes. Only occasionally did they need to check their notes. I don’t possess this kind of skill, but unfortunately a prompting panel at the rear of the sanctuary hasn’t yet been approved by the Presbyterian Church in Canada. It was the late Eldred King,

former mayor of WhitchurchStouffville and chair of the Region of York who, in one of his subliminal moments, suggested I’d missed my calling that, rather than a journalist, I should have been a minister or a politician. Sorry, Mr. King, despite the complexities of the fifth estate, your professions as suggested would have been nothing less than intolerable. I have no regrets. It’s no secret, service formats within the Christian church have changed dramatically in the last 20 years. Pianos and organs have been replaced by drums and guitars, even in denominations where, three decades ago, that would have been deemed blasphemous. However, the Presbyterian fraternity has, for the most part, remained firm. The first approach to every pastor’s assignment is selecting a theme. Everything that’s included in the service content must be in tune, even the hymns. Otherwise the congregation’s sure to become lost, even, Lord forbid, fall asleep. The occurrence of this calamity is undoubtedly the ultimate of humiliations.

Once the subject question’s addressed, the remainder falls into place. Or should.

While every career change has its peaks and valleys, I honestly feel it would be good for all to fit our feet into a pastor’s shoes, high heels or otherwise. Over the years, ministers have sometimes been accused of “choosing messages out of a barrel” or, in other words, regurgitating sermons used decades ago that no one has hopefully heard. Then there’s “the royal George”, that very special oration he or she sets aside for exceptional occasions like anniversaries. Earned or unearned, they’re sure to lead to accolades and handshakes. While education requirements vary with denominations, most pastors today are university graduates. Those who are not, possess diplomas or degrees of equal

equivalence. For a layman like myself who had to scratch and claw his way through high school, stepping into the shoes of a cleric even one Sunday a year, is an extremely taxing chore. But I’ll try. The other issue is what to wear? A clerical collar is out. So also is an embroidered scarf. And a gown, at 30 C, would be ludicrous even though St. James is blessed with air-conditioning. Selecting the other extreme, such as short-shorts and an opennecked shirt would send some traditionalists darting for the door. To be on the safe side, I’ll just sweat it out in a two-piece suit. While every career change has its peaks and valleys, I honestly feel it would be good for all to fit our feet into a pastor’s shoes, high heels or otherwise. Then, and only then, would we actually come to appreciate the rigors of a profession some folks, for our sakes, have chosen to follow. Jim Thomas is a Stouffville resident who has written for area newspapers for more than 60 years.

Smith wants clubhouse for residents Pan Am athletes make our riding proud From page 1.

be happy to review the potential facility …” according to the report. “It may be disappointing to the residents, but I would prefer we put our time and efforts into building the new clubhouse for our residents,” Ward 2 Councillor Maurice Smith told The Sun-Tribune. Town staff received drawings for the clubhouse and dome “but it appeared the costs of construction for these facilities was more than the BSDG had originally anticipated,” according to the report to council.

Grants for park, seniors’ projects The Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville has just received $116,589 in federal money to fund a pair of projects. Oak Ridges-Markham MP Paul Calandra, who is a Stouffville resident, gave the news to councillors in person during Tuesday afternoon’s town council meeting. Through the Enabling Accessibility Fund, the municipality received $46,589 to construct an accessible playground in the Stouffer Parkette, which is a block north of Main Street on Stouffer Street, just north of Summitview Public School. “I want to again congratulate the town and parks department for recognizing the need to do this and, of course, it is an honour for us to provide that funding to

In November 2014, members of the group asked the town to take over construction of the clubhouse, according to the report, which also notes, since that time, there has been very little communication with them. Part of the original lease agreement included that the town buy the clubhouse, once it was constructed, from the organization for $150,000. That amount was included in the 2015 budget should BSDG not move forward with construction, to enable the town to build it. Vandenberg did not respond to The Sun-Tribune’s request for comment.

allow it to get completed,” Calandra told council. The second grant was from the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, created to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017. The $70,000 will go towards renovating 6240 Main St. The 55+ Club is expected to move into the downtown building once the Latcham Gallery heads to its new home in the expanded leisure centre. “Part of making this country as great as it is, has been the contribution of our seniors to Canada and to communities across this country,” Calandra said. According to the Oak Ridges-Markham MP, since he was elected in 2008, more than $12 million in investments has come to Whitchurch-Stouffville. – Sandra Bolan

I need to be alone

The Pan Am Games have certainly made July an exciting month in Ontario. These games are the largest multisport event ever held on Canadian soil and have featured many proud moments for our community. The spectacular opening ceremony, featuring the 1996 Canadian men’s Olympic gold medalists in the 4x100 metre relay, was outstanding, as was the performance by Cirque du Soleil and the Parade of Nations. The lighting of the cauldron by Steve Nash capped off a 41-day journey through more than 130 communities across Ontario and Canada, including communities in our own riding. I was delighted to attend torch relays in both Markham and Whitchurch-Stouffville. There were 720 athletes representing Canada at the Pan Am Games — the most out of the 41 participating nations. It took them only five days to eclipse the gold medal total from the 2011 Pan Am Games — in fact, for Canada, the 2015 Pan Am Games was their most suc-

MPP Helena Jaczek Oak Ridges-Markham cessful ever. Local members of our community have also seen success at the Pan Am Games. On July 19 Rosie MacLennan of King City won gold and Karen Cockburn of Whitchurch-Stouffville won bronze in women’s Individual trampoline. July 12 Canada won gold in both women and men’s rugby 7s. Led by captain Jen Kish, the women’s rugby team had a perfect 6-0 record and outstanding 295 points for and only 19 points against. The men’s rugby team was led by captain John Moonlight and defeated Argentina 22-19 to win the gold medal in dramatic fashion.

I enjoyed both rugby games and I was amazed at the athleticism and pace required for rugby 7s. The gold medals in rugby have a special tie to our community, as Fletcher’s Field in Markham is the home of Rugby Ontario. There is more excitement to come. I would strongly encourage you to enjoy the Parapan Am Games, which run from Aug. 7 – 15 and will feature 1,608 athletes competing in 15 sports. As all the sports are qualifiers for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, the events will be filled with exciting competition and should not be missed. Finally, I will be having my annual Community Barbecue on Aug. 8 at the Markham Museum from 1 to 4 p.m. As always, it will feature fun for the entire family and will display the best our community has to offer, including local performers. Hope to see you there! Contact my constituency office at 905-294-4931 or visit helenajaczek.onmpp.ca

Yoga studio on farm ‘natural’ decision BY SANDRA BOLAN

Ellen Reesor opened a yoga studio in a greenhouse in the middle of her aunt and uncle’s Ninth Line farm, just south of Stouffville. STAFF PHOTO/STEVE SOMERVILLE

Ellen Reesor has opened up a place that is very special to her to share something else that is very precious to her. Reesor, 24, recently opened a yoga studio – Kind Yoga By Heart. She offers hatha, flow and live music yoga in a greenhouse in the middle of her aunt and uncle’s Ninth Line farm, just south of Stouffville. “Just being in nature you slow down and take a breath of fresh air. It will do them a world of good,” Reesor said of her students. When Reesor first came up with the idea of teaching yoga on the farm, she thought of holding classes in a pergola or a yurt. Then she and her uncle Jay decided to repurpose an old greenhouse. They tore the greenhouse down to its studs, moved it and created a new floor. The roof blocks out 80 per cent of the sun, while two of its walls are mosquito netting, which allows yoga practitioners to view the entire farm’s landscape no matter the pose. Because the greenhouse is not insulated, there will be no winter classes. The benefits of yoga are well known — it enhances emotional and mental well-being, as well as improves overall health.

Honda dealership to open in spring Ground was broken on Stouffville Honda, the latest addition to the Stouffville Auto Mall, at Hwy. 48 and Millard Street, Tuesday. The dealership will be a full-service facility and include new and used vehicle sales, as well as service and parts departments. It will be built just south of Stouffville Hyundai. It’s expected to open next spring with a staff of 20 to 25. “We are very proud to be associated with

By doing it outside, symptoms of depression and anxiety decrease, as do stress levels, while mental focus improves, according to Reesor. “We can see how deeply connected we are to the outdoors,” she said. “It goes deeper than getting a workout. They have more of an attitude of gratitude because it teaches you to live in the moment,” she said of yoga practitioners who range in age from child to senior and from elite athlete to the inflexible. Along with traditional hatha and flow classes, Reesor teaches live music classes during which a local musician provides accompaniment. On Saturdays, Reesor holds a Reap What you Sow class at 11 a.m. The concept is based on the idea of planting a seed of peace. Profits from these classes go to charity, such as Land Trust and Mennonite Central Committee. Reesor attended her first yoga class with her aunt about 10 years ago. Three years ago, she completed her first teacher-training program. Prior to opening this studio, Reesor taught at Main Street’s Soul Yoga for two years. The studio abruptly closed down earlier this year. For more information, go to www.kindyogabyheart.ca such a strong and respected brand,” said dealer principal Kevin Pearson. “The Honda name has long been synonymous with dependability, quality and reliability. Honda is a company with considerable presence in both the region and the local community, including Honda Canada’s corporate head office located only minutes from the site of our new facility.” There is room for one more dealership in the mall, which is also home to Nissan and Chrysler dealers and is across Millard Street from Stouffville Toyota.

COMING UP

Car shows getting family-friendly Crosbie, manager of culture and community services for the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville. Other activities in the kids’ zone include a maze-style game, multisport challenge and a ball toss.

BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

Cars and guys are a natural combo. But as more women get into the classics, car shows are going the family-friendly route, including the Whitchurch-Stouffville Museum’s Antique and Classic Car Show. The show takes place Aug. 9, with a rain date of Aug. 16. Last year, a small children’s area was introduced into the day’s events. This year, it has been taken over by Tiny Seedlings, a notfor-profit, community program for children operated by United Soils, and will include swing and water activities, according to Joan

food trucks “We’ll attract, hopefully, more families to come out and show it’s not just a dad event,” according to Crosbie, who noted family attendance at the 42-year-old event is growing. The food offerings are also slightly revamped to include food trucks, along with the traditional barbecue and tea garden. Food trucks expected at the

car show are Kruzin’ Kuizine and Belfiore Foods along with Mister Softee ice cream. On average, 300 antique and classic cars take over the museum’s property. Admission is $5 for people aged three and up or $15 for a family of four. All money raised will go towards the creation of a permanent Whitchurch-Stouffville exhibit, which is expected to open this November. The museum is located at 14732 Woodbine Ave. The car show runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, go to www.townofws.ca/en/ explore/museum.asp

Redemption ‘golden’ for Caira against USA

On Now at The Brick! For more details go instore or online @thebrick.com.

During the 2011 Pan American Games in Mexico, Jenna Caira learned how it felt to lose the gold medal as a member of Canada’s women’s softball team when they fell in the final to the United States. But when the 25-yearold Gormley native returned to pitch and serve as a co-captain on this year’s Pan Am tean, she and her teammates got to experience what it’s like to be on the other side. Canada defeated the States 4-2 in a dramatic final that went into an extra inning at the President’s Choice Ajax Pan Am Ballpark Sunday. While Caira did not pitch in the final game, one day earlier she handled starting duties and picked up her second win in the tournament in Canada’s 7-4 victory over Puerto Rico. That enabled Canada to advance and set the stage for their rubber match against the previously unbeaten U.S. in the gold medal finale. A member of the national team since 2009, Caira said the Canadians learned from their two head-to-head setback losses to the U.S. during the tournament. “It always feels good to win, particularly when our team has worked so long and so hard,” Caira said. “It’s especially good to beat the U.S. as they are the defending champions and a very good competitive team. “The fact that we lost to them earlier during the tournament was irrelevant. We learned from those losses and executed our plan perfectly (Sunday). Today (Sunday) is what really mattered and what everyone will remember. “We were really

pumped. We all knew what we had to do. We prepared for months for this day. It was a very special moment.” Caira said she was ready to go in. “Whether you are on the field or on the bench, you are a key member and contributor to this team. Today (Sunday) I cheered my teammates on,” she said. “As a co-captain I also have a leadership role and I try and motivate and encourage my teammates at all times. I also watch the game and try to pick up some things that my teammates can use to our advantage.”

‘... wearing their Team Canada shirts with (my) No. 29 on the back.’ Winning the gold medal in front of family and close friends made it extra special. “It was cute to see my five-year-old nephew, Andrew, and my two-yearold niece at the games wearing their Team Canada shirts with (my) No. 29 on the back,” she said. “In fact, I was really surprised to see so many of my teammates from the four national championship teams that we won. It was a very emotional time for all of us.” As for what’s up next in her career, the Seneca College student said she will enjoy the moment for the time being. “I’m taking a few days to spend with friends at their cottage. Beyond that, time will tell, once I have had some time to enjoy our success at the Pan Ams,” the Toronto resident said.


For Karen Cockburn, winning Canadian trampoline titles has become somewhat of a ritual. But for the 34-year-old Stouffville resident who laid claim to an unprecedented 15th women’s crown in Calgary last weekend, it’s still a rewarding experience. “It’s definitely cool to get a

15th national title,” the three-time Olympic medallist and recent 2015 Pan American Games bronze medallist said upon returning Tuesday. Cockburn utilized the same routine she executed at the 2015 Pan American Games against another international field. She won the national title and women’s open. “To have them (international competitors) there was neat and to compete against them and to win

both titles was cool,” she said. Cockburn finished third at last year’s nationals when she made her return to competing after giving birth to her daughter Emilie. That also brought a sense of satisfaction to Cockburn. “It definitely helped to compete at the Pan American Games,” she said. “Having come off of that and then to go to Calgary where there were fewer people in the stands,

there was less pressure. I felt more relaxed.” Cockburn solidified her spot on the national team that will compete in World Cup events this fall along with the World Championships in Denmark. That will enable Cockburn to continue with her quest towards competing at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Her next competition is a World

Cup event in France in October. She feels she’s on track after incurring a broken ankle last November just days before the start of the world championships in Daytona, Florida. “Right now everything is going well,” she said. “I feel that I’m getting healthier and stronger and I’ll continue to do that with more training.” – Michael Hayakawa

Beloved mother, passionate opera lover, motorcycle enthusiast, detailed accountant, Elvis fanatic - Patricia Johnson was so many things, and extraordinary in so many ways. A lifelong skiing fan, Patricia was born in the aptly-named town of Hillsport, Ontario, in 1937, and grew up in then-Port Arthur (present Thunder Bay), where she attended and graduated from Hillcrest High School. Working her way through nursing school, Patricia did odd modeling assignments, enjoyed the Port Arthur nightlife, and made even more friends, many of whom she stayed in constant touch with over the next six decades. Moving to Toronto in the early sixties, Patricia worked at G&H Steel, where she developed her bookkeeping chops, becoming a detailed and meticulous numbers expert. She eventually worked for herself and had a roster of grateful and high-profile clients, many of whom worked in the busy Toronto/GTA real estate market. Patricia was a passionate music lover. It was this love that lead her to meet Vilmos Kustanczy in the early 1970s. Their marriage produced one child, Catherine, who was introduced to opera at the age of four by her mother. Around this time, Patricia also enrolled Catherine in piano lessons. Over the years, the pair enjoyed beautiful evenings at the then-O’Keefe Centre (present-day Sony Centre), for Canadian Opera Company productions, Roy Thomson Hall, for Toronto Symphony Orchestra concerts, and outings that took them to the Stratford Festival, the Canadian Stage Company, Harbourfront Centre, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Art Gallery of Ontario, Opera Hamilton, as well as cultural excursions in Toronto, New York City, Europe, Scandinavia, and the regions of the Mediterranean. it was the thrill of a lifetime for Patricia to see Luciano Pavarotti perform live at the Metropolitan Opera in various productions in the 1990s. One of the chief joys of Patricia’s later life was being a dog-mom to Fifi and Chouchou, two teacup Yorkies with feisty temperaments that complemented their owner. Patricia was also a tireless and proud supporter of the pursuits and passions of her daughter, a journalist. A big smile, infectious laugh, and generous nature, even through tough times like repeated chemotherapy treatments, made Patricia special to so many.

Sylebration fuses two passions of Sy Benlolo By Laura Finney

E

lfinney@yrmg.com

ven though Sy Benlolo’s life was tragically cut short at age 40, he touched a lot of people through his music and his personality. “Sy was a very lovable, friendly, funny and talented guy,” said his cousin Marc Saltzman. “Everybody who knew Sy loved him.” Benlolo, who grew up in North York before moving to Thornhill, started playing music at age 10 and never stopped. And he was more than just a musician. He was a performer. Growing up, Benlolo and Saltzman were very close, like brothers, Saltzman said. They were even in a band Remedy together. “Music really was our glue,” said Saltzman. “We were in the band together, so every waking moment from age 10 or 11 all the way to age 25, it was all about the music.” Some of his favourite memories of Sy are from that time. “My fondest memories of him would be playing in front of large groups, and we’ve had some amazing gigs as a band where we’ve opened up for The Tragically Hip, we opened up for Goo Goo Dolls, and we opened for Barenaked Ladies,” he said. “Seeing him turn around with a smile on his face, ear to ear when the crowd was going nuts, is something that is forever burned in my memory.” As they got older, Saltzman began a career in technology, he

got married and had children. But Benlolo stayed in music. He started performing at dance clubs, playing his guitar over the DJ’s music. His stage name became Sy Sylver and he travelled the world doing what he loved. But music was not his only passion. He also loved children. “Even though he was single, he loved kids, as well. He was everybody’s uncle Sy,” said Saltzman, “including my three kids, they would get so excited when he would come in the door.”

‘He would be blown away at the amount of interest and support for him years after he has passed on. He’d be proud that we are using that money to improve the life of kids.’ Sadly, Benlolo died in April 2012 after having an anaphylactic reaction to some of his medication while working in Mexico. “It was a real loss when he passed away, it was a real shock,” said Saltzman. “The irony is that someone so full of life with a larger-than-life personality, very extroverted and funny, the fact that he passed away was such a disconnect. It was so opposite of what you would expect.” To help keep his memory alive,

Saltzman has helped organize Sylebration, an annual event that raises money for the music therapy program at The Hospital For Sick Children. “The point of the event is to celebrate Sy’s life to keep his memory alive,” said Saltzman. “And we fuse his two passions, which are music and kids.” There have been three Sylebrations so far, each event drawing hundreds of people. Organizers even have support from KISS, who not only made a small promotional video for the event, but also donated tickets and VIP passes to a concert, along with a guitar signed by all four members. “He was a huge KISS fan,” said Saltzman. “Since he was old enough to walk.” The event has raised $150,000, which Saltzman said is a testament to how many people were touched by Benlolo. “It’s not easy to do that year after year and get hundreds and hundreds of people out, but because it’s Sy, we’re able to do it.” While Benlolo did not know about the program at Sick Kids Hospital, Saltzman said he would have loved it. “He used to do that for family members,” he said. “He used to love playing for people to make them feel better. That’s Sy.” And he would be honoured that so much had been raised in his name. “I think he would be very humbled at the attendance and support of such a charity in his
