The sun has set on the WhitchurchStouffville Energy Co-operative’s solar project for the Stouffville Clippers Sports Complex. “It was a dream that we had that gradually got eroded,” Harry French, the co-op’s presi-

dent told The Sun-Tribune yesterday morning. In what amounted to a last ditch effort, the Whitchurch-Stouffville co-op partnered with Queen Street Solar Co-operative, which would have taken on the construction and operation of the project at the Weldon Road twin-rinks complex. In order for Queen Street Co-operative to

take over, the local co-op wanted the $100,000 security deposit rescinded. The request was denied. “The request for waiving the security clause and the licence agreement be rejected,” was See NOT, page 10.

A horse is dead after it ran onto Vivian Road and was struck by a vehicle. The accident happened at 5:50 a.m. yesterday. The initial call to York Regional Police was for a driving hazard. “Horses on the road, walking on Hwy. 48,” said Const. Laura Nicolle. Five minutes later police received another call about a vehicle hitting a horse on Vivian Road. The collision occurred just west of Hwy. 48.

About 15 horses were wandering in the area, some were on the road, while others were in ditches or cleared to the side, according to Const. Nicolle. One horse, however, darted in front of a pick-up truck driven by a 60-year-old Newmarket man. The horse died. The driver of the truck was uninjured, but his truck sustained extensive damage, according to police. No charges will be laid. “There’s a reason we call it an accident. The driver couldn’t predict that,” Const. Nicolle said. – Sandra Bolan

Ash borer hitting town trees BY SANDRA BOLAN

Virtually all of the ash trees on boulevards within the community of Stouffville show evidence of being infected by the emerald ash borer, according to Rob Flindall, director of public works for the Town of WhitchurchStouffville. The infestation is contained to Stouffville because the trees, in all likelihood, came from a nursery, which means they are all clones, he said, adding, there are no pockets within Stouffville affected more than others. “Emerald ash borer does not discriminate. If anything, the smaller trees seem to survive a little bit better,” Flindall said. In 2012, there were 1,088 ash trees within the municipality’s roadways and so far, 130 have been removed. Trees in parks and open spaces, also managed by the town, were not inventoried. The municipality is not utilizing any form of insecticide in order to manage the emerald ash borer, instead staff are opting to wait for the tree to die or be on the verge

of death, before they chop it down, which Flindall noted is no different than what other municipalities are doing. “We’re not going to take down what is essentially a living tree and replace it with another tree,” Flindall said. The ash trees are being replaced with maples and oaks, to avoid what Flindall called a “monoculture” of trees. Flindall warned people should not expect a new tree to be planted immediately after one has been removed. The process will take years. Planting new trees does not guarantee they too will remain disease free, Flindall cautioned. In July, an arborist, hired by the town, identified 180 ash trees in Stouffville that needed to be removed immediately. This will be done within the next two to three years, according to Flindall. There are another 334 trees identified has “high priority,” which will be removed and replaced within the following three to five years. Another 430 trees were deemed low priority and will be removed at a later time.

Empty liquor bottles will assist sports teams, charities BY SANDRA BOLAN

sbolan@yrmg.com

Your empty liquor containers can help local organizations. Whitchurch-Stouffville residents Shaen Armstrong and Bill Perrie have established the not-for-profit Bottle Shed Foundation, which turns those empties into cash for area organizations, sports teams and charities. “Something that’s going to help the members of the community,” Armstrong said. “We can help anybody who would normally use a

bottle drive.” Along with collecting bottles and cans from local homeowners at festivals and fundraising events, the foundation has entered into agreements with some local pubs to collect a portion of their liquor containers. The foundation is holding its official launch party Sept. 13 at The Coach House Pub in Ballantrae, from 2 to 6 p.m. A CD featuring The Spoons’ Gordon Deppe, FranknYuf, Ted Moroz, Perrie and a group of local sing-

ers known as the Pub Crew, will be available for sale at the launch with all of its proceeds going to the foundation. Deppe and his new band 3MDM will be at the launch. Deppe will also be signing copies of his book – SpoonFed. Bottle drives were once a mainstay of fundraising for minor hockey teams, boy scout and girl guide organizations, but Armstrong admitted “it’s a lot of work for such little return,” which is why those groups rarely or no longer do them.

The Bottle Shed Foundation held its first major collection during the Strawberry Festival earlier this summer. They collected between 420 and 500 liquor containers, which netted the group about $42, according to Armstrong. The idea for the foundation came from Perrie. A writer for The Beer Store magazine, Perrie met a woman in South River, Ont., which is about halfway between North Bay and Huntsville, who had a shed where locals dropped off their empty

liquor containers. The money she garnered from the returns was then given out to local community groups, according to Armstrong. Perrie liked the idea so much, he thought it could be done in Stouffville, she said. The Beer Store is one of the foundation’s main sponsors. To have liquor containers picked up from your home, call 1-866-3898747. They will not collect them out of curbside recycle bins. For more information, go to http://bottleshed.ca

#cometogether indeed for all the right reasons

M

aybe these Toronto Blue Jays have really hit on something — beyond all those home runs flying out of ball parks across North America this summer. The Jays are a feel-good story in a market that hasn’t been feeling itself for decades. As a bedroom community, we’re part of that once-sad GTA equation. Toronto has been crying for a major league — sorry Argonauts — championship since, well, the Jays won the 1993 World Series. Unless they bought tickets, the Maple Leafs haven’t been to a Stanley Cup final since 1967. And despite all the hype, the Raptors have won all of one playoff series during their 20 years on the planet. That’s no city of champions, Hogtown. You are not in Chicago or Boston. Then out of the blue, this year’s hot-and-cold Jays’ team adds some big-time talent and goes on a record-setting romp. Taking an entire country on the ride with it. The tall fellow in front of us at the raucous Civic Holiday game was impressed by the enthusiasm pouring out of the Rogers Centre. He should know. “That’s how sports should be,” NBA superstar Kevin Durant, maybe the finest basketball player on earth, told CBC-TV. “It brings people together, unites us all and it’s an exciting time.” He was later spotted wearing a David Price jersey at a Drake concert. Turns out the hashtag #cometogether the Jays promote on Twitter is more than a cute marketing ploy. It’s real. The GTA hasn’t felt this sort of buzz since Kim Campbell was prime minister. Let’s hope the Jays fare better than she did.

Off The Top with Jim Mason Folks in Main Street coffee bars chime in on the exploits of their heroes from last night’s game. People can pronounce Troy Tulowitzki. They know the Bringer of Rain in the T Dot is not Spartacus. Sunday’s final thrashing of the Detroit Tigers this season had a party-like atmosphere from the first pitch. Our little corner of the former SkyDome had a small-town feel, with almost everyone having a connection to Stouffville, believe it or not. And while the Jays are printing playoff tickets, let’s keep the Dom Perignon on ice and not order any ticker tape just yet, eh? Enjoy the ride. If you can get a seat for a remaining game, do go. If not, grab a Jays’ cap or T-shirt and a stool and a cold one at a local watering hole. Or invite the neighbourhood over for a viewing party. Don’t forget to tell anyone under 30 that this was the norm around these parts from 1985-93. The naysayers will say it’s only sport. Millionaires in pyjamas playing children’s games. But as my new friend Kevin Durant says, if it builds community, bring it on. #cometogether indeed. Jim Mason is editor of The Sun-Tribune. Follow him on Twitter @stouffeditor

50 years of service to seniors

L

ooking ahead, 50 years seems like an eternity. Looking back, it’s like yesterday. On Sunday, Sept. 27, the past, present and future will be acclaimed when Parkview Services for Seniors, (Parkview Home), 12184 Ninth Line in Stouffville, celebrates a half-century of incalculable pride within the community and beyond. The formal part of the program will take place in the neighbouring Parkview Village auditorium at 2:30 p.m., with fellowship and refreshments to follow at the exterior Gathering Place. The public is invited, particularly those associated with the home’s early years. The current complex includes 20 cluster units, 45 suites, 124 village apartments and 128 long-term care components accommodating in total close to 350 residents. However, the initial consideration, 50 years ago, was to purchase either Brierbush Hospital or a nursing home now known as Buckingham Manor, both on Main Street. Later, the incentive for exploring the idea of a new Parkview Home for the Aged came from Newton Gingrich, then pastor of Wideman Mennonite Church on Hwy. 48 in Markham. With respect to acquiring Brierbush, a committee comprising Levi Diller, Carl W. Reesor, Albert Drudge, Sam Fretz and Oliver Shank submitted an offer of $40,000 to then owner Ella Malcolm, but this was rejected. The asking price for the nursing home, then operated by Murray and Aldine Sinclair was $50,000. A newly appointed committee that included Amos Reesor, John M. Reesor, Cecil Reesor and Joe Nighswander chose not to proceed. This decision set the wheels in motion for a new home on Rupert Avenue. Nighswander, a vision-

Roaming Around with Jim Thomas ary, is quoted as saying: “The board of directors realized the need for specialized care and accommodation for older people in the Markham/ Stouffville area. The dignity, independence, acceptance and love with which each person would be met, was at the heart of Parkview.” The ground-breaking ceremony occurred Aug. 31, 1964. Wielding the ceremonial silver spade were Maurice Eby, Cecil Reesor and Joe Nighswander with brief talks by village Reeve Win Timbers, Stouffville Missionary Church pastor Arthur Walsh and board members Newton Gingrich and Roy Nigh. The first resident was admitted June 14, 1965. Two wings were added in 1971, Four years later, a two-storey seniors’ apartment was erected adjacent to the home. The new Parkview Home opened in 2006. Condos are being built on the Rupert Avenue site. Allan Wideman was appointed the home’s first administrator April 1, 1965 at an annual salary of $4,500. Others to follow included Joe Nighswander, Herb Diller, Lloyd Hogg and Wallace Kribs. The current executive director is Solange Taylor. Others currently holding senior management positions are: Tina Skodic, housing administrator; Kris Savage, director of support services; Jon Irwin, director

of business services; Angela Bisschop, director of care; Maurice Lamontagne, director of property services and Terry Collins, director of nutritional services. Chairman of the board of directors is David Burkholder. Other board members include Faye Grove, Mary Lymburner, Bonnie Drudge, Jim Hobbs, Larry Hogg, Dr. Don Petrie and ‘Pep’ Philpott. Two hundred are required to staff the home, assisted by more than 50 volunteers. The ages of current residents range from 61 to 103. “It’s our staff,” says Taylor, a former registered nurse and graduate in health studies from York University. “We’re so blessed because they’re so caring. It’s because they work as a team and so love our residents, everything runs smoothly.” The positive attitude established by the home’s senior management and sustained by staff is reflected in sentiments expressed by residents. “I’m very happy here,” says Bertha Slaughter, “the staff, the food, everything is wonderful. Our town is fortunate to have so excellent a facility.” “This is now my home,” said Nan James. “The staff is absolutely wonderful – always very accommodating.” “Wonderful” is also the expression used by Vera Moyer in describing members of staff. “For me, every day’s a holiday. I love it here.” So what does the future hold? “There’s room for expansion,” says the executive director. A development committee has already been established. “The vision experienced by Joe Nighswander 50 years ago remains alive and well today,” she said. Jim Thomas is a Stouffville resident who has written for area newspapers for more than 60 years.


York Regional Police are investigating a man who allegedly photographed a woman in a change room. The incident occurred around 8:20 p.m. Aug. 20 in the SmartCentres plaza on Hoover Park Drive. Police did not identify the store. The female victim said she possibly saw a camera go over the change room wall and photograph her, according to police. A man was in the change room beside her. The suspect is described as a tall, skinny white male in his late 30s, wearing glasses, black jeans and a grey shirt. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-tips or www.1800222tips.com. You can also text it to CRIMES (274637) starting with the word YORK. – Sandra Bolan

Boater charged in crash that injured 9 A Whitchurch-Stouffville man has been charged with careless operation of a vessel. The charge stems from an Aug. 22 incident that left nine people injured, following the collision of two pleasure craft boats on Lake Scugog in Durham Region. A witness said that around 5:30 p.m. two boats travelling at different rates of speed went by him. They collided, flipping the slower boat and sending the faster one careering off. Another witness estimated both boats were about 16 feet long and said the faster one was smoking and damaged. Eyewitness Peter Parker helped pull a nine-year-old boy from the water. Two elderly people called out, looking for a baby. It was trapped under the overturned boat. They couldn’t flip the boat over and couldn’t see the child through the murky water, so with the help of others they applied weight to one side and tipped the vessel enough for the father to reach under and push the baby towards Parker, who grabbed the child and passed her to his wife. The child was wearing a lifejacket. Parker then helped others into his boat and headed back to Caesarea, which he figured would provide quicker access for emergency personnel than nearby Washburn Island. None of the injured people suffered life-threatening injuries, according to Kawartha Lakes OPP. Charged is 60-year-old Peter Puhl. Torstar News Service

Town’s first French school ready for students Whitchurch-Stouffville’s first French Catholic elementary school opens it doors next week. École élémentaire et secondaire de Stouffville, which is located on Sunset Boulevard on the former Orchard Park Public School site, will initially have students in JK to Grade 7. It will eventually go to Grade 12. Whitchurch-Stouffville has the highest population of French speaking residents per capita in York Region, said Yves Levesque, President du Conseil, Conseiller scolaire, Region de York during a ground breaking ceremony in November 2013. Levesque has since left this job. Back in 2013, it was anticipated the school would cost $11.3 million to construct and it have a capacity of 420 students. The closest French Catholic elementary schools are in Aurora and Markham. Aurora also has a high school. Orchard Park closed in 2008 school. In 2009-10 students from Whitchurch Highlands Public School utilized it, while their school underwent renovations. In the spring of 2012 the York Region District School Board approved its sale to the French Catholic board. – Sandra Bolan

MAKING THE TREK

Thomas here again… August is always a bittersweet time for us at the Grocer. September means that all our regular customers are back in town, back from cottages and vacation, but it also marks the departure of many of our amazing summer students who return back to university. I’ve been out of school for two years now since finishing my undergrad at Western. I was always eager to head back to my friends at school, but was devastated to leave behind the convenience of Village Grocer meals. When I’d go back to university, I’d load up on filet mignon, veal chops, rib eyes but I’d be sure to pack them underneath canned food and frozen entrées so my parents had no idea! We’re featuring items this week that are perfect for elementary school lunches or for the university student in need of a stockpile of delicious frozen entrées…

You just have to warm them, and in a regular oven is the best way. Reg. $4.99/100g

For our feature salad this week we’ll have our Mac & Cheese Pasta Salad. We toss elbow pasta with chunks of our maple sugar ham, cheddar and fresh peas in a dressing of mayo with a touch of Dijon. Serious comfort food, so dig in! Reg. $1.49/100g This one goes out to my good buddy, Grant, an undergrad at Western who has worked for many years as a part-timer in our meat department. He’s constantly harassing us to make our Spicy Fried Calamari, so before he goes back to school, we’ve decided to throw him a bone. Reg. $2.99/100g

Taste of Stouffville ‘more than meat fest’ Evergreen Hospice provides community support for people and their families coping with the impact of a life-threatening illness or grief. They hope to raise around $20,000. By partnering with Evergreen Hospice, it enabled Bouwmeister to create a bit of legacy for his mother Catherine, who was one of the notfor-profit organization’s founding members, he said. The day also includes a microbrew village, petting zoo, live music and mechanical bull. Some vehicles from Motorfest, which will be taking place across town on the Teva grounds the same day, have also been invited to attend. “We’re trying to keep it unique, although a lot of things have already been done,” Bouwmeister said. For a donation of at least $2 or a non-perishable food item, attendees will receive tickets to win door prizes. The non-perishable food will be donated to the WhitchurchStouffville Food Bank. “It’s a food fest, so it seemed to be a good idea,” Simkin said. The money will go to Evergreen Hospice. For more information go to http://evgcares.org

Sshh, don’t tell anyone, but the Taste of Stouffville Harvest Fest 2015 is actually an undercover meat fest. After receiving negative feedback from vegans and having protestors outside the Vulcan Meat Club’s Meat Fest last year, event founder John JJ Bouwmeister decided it was time to re-invent the celebration of all things meat. Meat fest was “kind of harsh,” he admitted. “We started over, but we started smart,” Bouwmeister said, adding he did everything himself for the previous event, which caused meat sweats. This time there is a committee of volunteers putting together the Taste of Stouffville, which takes place Sept. 12 in Memorial Park from 1 to 10 p.m. Taste of Stouffville will offer a whole buffet of food including bacon wrapped alligator, moose balls, tacos, ribs and corn. “I’m hoping for a few unique and unusual things,” said Rebecca Simkin, fund development co-ordinator for Evergreen Hospice. Evergreen Hospice is working with Bouwmeister on the event and is the beneficiary of its proceeds.

New look to Ballantrae fair

Hospice benefits Evergreen Hospice serves WhitchurchStouffville, Markham and Thornhill. The community hospice provides free in-home care, reiki, reflexology, healing touch and therapeutic touch treatments, short-term respite care for families and paid caregivers as well as day programs. Evergreen Hospice receives 20 to 25 per cent of its funding from government sources, according to Rebecca Simkin, fund development co-ordinator for the notfor-profit. “It’s not very much when you think about the services we provide,” she said. The rest of the money comes from donations and events. Eighty per cent of Canadians say they want quality hospice care at the end of their life, yet less than 15 per cent of people have access to it, according to Evergreen Hospice’s website. Prior to the start of Taste of Stouffville, Evergreen Hospice will hold its annual Walk to Remember, which honours the memory of someone special to participants at noon. A 1 or 5K walk around Stouffville, which starts in Memorial Park, will follow a memorial ceremony and dove release. Participants are expected to collect at least $50 in donations. Register at http:// evgcares.org or 416-499-2185.

25 Years of Helping Our Community Hear!

The Ballantrae Fall Fair is going back to its roots. “It didn’t really veer off, but it was more just a fair and didn’t speak to the season,” said Joan Crosbie, manager of culture and community services for the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville. The town took over the event last year. It takes place Sept. 13, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Ballantrae Community Centre on Aurora Road. The change in direction also coincides with Maurice Smith being the new Ward 2 councillor. Former ward councillor Phil Bannon started the event in 2010. He lost to Justin Altmann in the mayoral race last October. After an absence, the farmers’ market returns to the fall fair. There will also be wagon rides, a quilting demonstration, free tennis lessons, seasonal art activities led by members of Latcham Gallery, heritage games, kids’ zone and a baking contest. Rules for the baking contest are simple: the item must be homemade and a baked good, according to Crosbie. The item has to be dropped off by 11 a.m. Judging is at 1 p.m. and there will be prizes — $100 for first, $50 for second and $25 for third place.

The only holdover from the previous fairs is the Ballantrae Scouts’ pancake breakfast, which remains a fundraiser for the organization. It runs from 9 a.m. to noon. There will be other standard fall fair food, according to Crosbie. For more information, go to www.townofws.ca

Zoomers head downtown A zoomer is a boomer, with zip. The inaugural Zoomers’ Market takes place Sept. 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., in various locations — Latcham Hall, the Main Street train station and 6240 Main St. There will be free seminars, exhibits and booths. The market is put on by the Town of WhitchurchStouffville.

Canadian play being read ​The Canadian play Albertine in Five Times is being read by the Stouffville Theatre Company at the Lebovic Centre for Arts & Entertainment – Nineteen on the Park​ Sept. 18 at 8 p.m. Admission is by donation, suggested at $10. Written by Canadian novelist and playwright Michel Tremblay, the drama centres on the reflections of a Quebec woman. It’s directed by Carolyn Arnett and Lisa Meers.

Not our ‘business to be playing with residents’ money’: councillor From page 1.

in part, the resolution put forward by Ward 4 Councillor Rick Upton and approved by council Tuesday night. The Clippers Complex is in Upton’s ward.

The project was rejected, in part, because of the $1 million required up front by the town and the reduced rate of return, Upton told The Sun-Tribune Wednesday. “It would jeopardize other opportunities we could have,” he said, including the library expan-

sion. Upton also told The Sun-Tribune the 20-year program was problematic, because there was no guarantee of return. “It’s not a government’s business to be playing with residents’ money,” he said.

The Best Back-to-School Deal for Our Kids MORE SUPPORT FOR CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS – MORE INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION FOR EVERY CHILD – RESPECT FOR TEACHERS’ ABILITY TO CREATE THE BEST LEARNING ENVIRONMENT FOR STUDENTS. THAT’S WHAT ELEMENTARY TEACHERS ARE NEGOTIATING FOR.

AS TEACHERS, WE WANT THE BEST FOR OUR STUDENTS. A message from

The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario BuildingBetterSchools.ca

Back in January, Mayor Justin Altmann told council “I believe we are missing out on an opportunity.” Altmann and French went for a site visit to Brant County, prior to that meeting in January, to look at a rooftop solar panel project that was very similar to the one proposed for the Clippers Complex. “You have to go to Brant,” Altmann told his councillors back in January. The mayor did not speak to the matter last night, other than to thank the delegate for the presentation. “I was taken aback by the brutality of it,” French told The Sun-Tribune of Tuesday night’s decision. He added he thought they had a 50-50 chance of being given the go-ahead to do the project, which has been in the works since 2011. The co-op will now be dissolved. Forty of its 110 members invested $1,000 into the co-op, including French, but they will only receive a “small portion” of that back, he said. According to the council resolution, town staff will now explore other solar green energy options, which will be incorporated into the design of future facilities, including the second indoor pool. The initiatives will directly benefit the town and residents. The project was plagued with issues since its inception four

HARRY FRENCH: President of energy co-op ‘taken aback by the brutality of’ council’s rejection of plan. years ago. In 2013, the co-op’s application to the Ontario Power Authority’s FIT program was denied due to an incomplete application. Later that year, the application was re-submitted with the addition of a licence agreement with the town being a requirement. During those two years, changes were made to the FIT program. In particular, the per kWh price, for projects larger than 100 kWh, dropped from 53.9 cents to 32.9 cents. This was a 250 kWh venture. In August 2014, council of the day decided it wanted a $100,000 letter of surety from the co-op. “If things did go amiss, we could always step in and take it over,” Councillor Rob Hargrave said during the Jan. 20 meeting of why the surety was requested. Hargrave was also a councillor during the last term. Hundreds of other communities are embracing solar/green initiatives, however, “this community has done nothing of any substance. “(Council has) lost touch with what is going on around them,” French, who unsuccessfully ran for council last year, told The Sun-Tribune. “There’s no real leadership around community initiatives. There’s a want to control things,” he told The Sun-Tribune The Sun-Tribune tried to contact Altmann for an interview, however, he did not respond prior to our publication’s deadline.

30 PEOPLE WITH HEARING LOSS Qualified Participants Needed for Technology Field Test

During this Limited-Time event, we are looking for people like you, who may be experiencing varying levels of hearing loss to evaluate a remarkable new line of digital hearing aids and a rehabilitative process that could be the solution to your difficulties. Call us toll-free today at one of the numbers below to see if you qualify for this Field Test. Potential candidates will be given a FREE hearing test to determine candidacy. Participants will be given a FREE in-office demonstration, and the opportunity to evaluate the latest, most advanced hearing aid technology for 30 days at drastically reduced rates. A refund* is available at the end of the test period if you feel your test aids do not improve your hearing. A full range of sizes are available in this new technology, including the exceptionally disscreet and re t open-fit op IIC models shown here:

Similar to choosing between contact lenses or glasses, you can decide with your hearing professional which hearing aid style would best suit you. Both styles have approximately the same performance and functions, but are fitted to the ear differently.

Both Spirit Jr. A goalies in sick bay for opening day BY MICHAEL HAYAKAWA

mhayakawa@yrmg.com

In a perfect world, the Stouffville Spirit would have all of their key personnel on the ice for their Ontario Hockey League regular season opener against the Toronto Junior Canadians at the Stouffville Arena on Labour Day Monday at 2:30 p.m. Realistically though, the Spirit will have to make due minus several of those players they are counting on — at least for now. With several veterans inflicted by the injury bug combined with a couple of key players at major junior training camps this week, the Spirit were left in the likely position where veteran head coach Jeff Perrin will be forced to go with the best talent at his disposal. On the injury shelf are returning goalkeepers Conor McCollum, out indefinitely with mononucleosis, and Gormley resident Aaron Taylor, who is expected to miss a couple of weeks with an upper body injury incurred late in Saturday evening’s preseason tilt against the Pickering Panthers. Among those attending camps include: Zach Roberts, younger brother of Spirit team captain Spencer Roberts, Nick Thomakos, Kyle Thomas and recently acquired forward Kyle Hamlin. Veteran forward Alex Gilmour was out with a United States Hockey League club. “Overall we haven’t had everyone together to play yet. But that’s the way it goes,” Perrin said. “There’s really nothing you can do

Open-fit and Invisible-In-the-Canal (IIC) hearing aids are smaller and more beautiful than ever, striking the perfect balance between size and performance. The elegant and highly discreet open-fit hearing aid fits perfectly on top of your ear, and the thin tube in your ear canal is designed to disappear against your skin. The new IIC hearing aid--now with wireless technology--provides all of the outstanding features and benefits you want in a digital hearing aid, minus the stigma that came with wearing one in the past.

CALL NOW - Candidates are being selected. The selection process for this test period will end September 30, 2015.

about it.” Otherwise, Perrin has been impressed. “I think we’ve got good speed and a little more grit than last year,” he said. But with McCollum and Taylor now sidelined, Perrin was quick to acknowledge his club is in a bit of a quandry between the pipes to start the season. Expected to handle netminding duties for the opening bell is rookie Kyle Pescador, who received a fair amount of ice time during the club’s preseason slate. The Stouffville resident was expected to spend the year playing midget AAA in Durham Region. Ahead of final cuts, there were close to 35 players in camp last weekend. The Spirit played their final three exhibition games in two days that began with a 6-1 loss to the St. Michael’s Buzzers in a Saturday matinee game at the Stouffville Arena. Later that night, the Spirit hosted the Pickering Panthers and skated off with a 6-5 victory. Playing St. Michael’s in their preseason finale Sunday, the Spirit won 4-3. Among the individuals who have caught Perrin’s attention was forward Otis Goldman, who came to the Spirit along with Hamlin, a Thunder Bay resident, in a trade with the Markham Royals last week in exchange for Tyson Bruce and Matt Dunlop. (Go to yorkregion.com for reaction to the trade.) Playing last season with the then Hamilton Red Wings before moving to Markham to start this season, the 20-year-old Vancouver native had a hat trick in the win over Pickering. The Spirit ended the preseason at 3-3.

The minimum wage is going up.

Hathaway wins on Bowmanville track Jason Hathaway accomplished something he had not done before in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series’ Pinty’s presents the Clarington 200 race at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park near Bowmanville Sunday. Driving the Stouffville-based EHRTeam Three Red’s Muskoka Aircraft Centre/HGC Chevrolet, Hathaway drove off with the checkered flag in a race conducted on a road course.

coming out September 24th, 2015

Making the feat even more rewarding was that prior to qualifying, the team made an engine change and added a sponsor in Muskoka Aviation Centre just in time for the race. “It was pretty exciting,” Hathaway said. “We probably had a fifth-place car by the time we shook things out. But we got good track conditions and I could see the front and a couple of late cautions gave us a shot to win. I just capitalized on it. “It’s great for my car owner and everyone involved with my team.” With the victory, Hathaway moved up to second place in the overall series standings with one race to go in the series at Kawartha Speedway Sept. 19. Hathaway has 394 points and is just nine behind leader Scott Steckly. – Michael Hayakawa

Michael Bucci always made time for others By Tim Kelly

he doorbell woke up Lucy Bucci at 1:30 a.m. on Aug. 29, 2014. Her son, Michael, hadn’t arrived home to Richmond Hill following recreation hockey in Scarborough. She went to the door, wondering who it could be? Her first foggy thought was Michael had forgotten his house key or maybe her daughter, Melissa, had forgotten hers. But when she peeked through the window, Lucy saw two police officers and two women from victim services. She soon got the news every parent dreads. “Your son was in a terrible car accident,” the officer said. “He succumbed to his injuries at the scene of the accident.” Lucy said her husband, Bruce, with serious health concerns of his own, was hysterical at the news and her daughter was frozen stiff at the top of the stairs. As for Lucy, her brain simply shut down, then and there. The next day at 7 a.m., she went to the coroners’ office in Toronto to identify her only son. “I saw him on a screen. The detectives were still there. He was just smiling, with a beautiful little smile with his eyes closed. He looked angelic,” Lucy said. “It’s just a horrible, horrible

mond Hill that took Michael’s life at the age of 27. But nobody could give her any answers.

Celebrate a life well lived!

“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.”

“It eats away at you — initially, every day I was searching and searching for an answer. I met with the coroner twice. “No alcohol, no sickness, no drugs, no texting. How did this happen? Is it mechanical? Is it human error? What caused this? The officer stated the only person who knows is not here to tell us,” she said. Lucy only has memories of Michael now, the young man she remembers vividly. “I miss that boy. I miss his walking in saying, ‘Hello, hello, what’s for dinner, what are we eatin’ tonight,’ cause he was all about food,” she said in a recent phone conversation. Michael was the kind of man she said, who, “no matter where he went, he stopped and spoke to every single person, even if he hadn’t seen them in 15 years, he stopped and talked to them.” “So many people in the community have told me he came up to them and said, ‘How’s it going, how are you doing?’ Michael was such a regular young man, with goals and dreams of the future. He attended elementary school at Our Lady Help of Christian and Father Henri Nouwen and went to high school at St Theresa of Liseuix. With fiancée Jessica Couto, he had plans to marry this past April. The two had been together five years at the time of the crash, had pur-

chased a house, were saving for their future together and were big Maple Leaf fans. Michael was a Red Seal electrician, helped out his grandparents in Caledon by mowing the grass in summer and covering the airconditioner in winter. He was a true outdoorsman, according to his mom, a videographer who started a small business, Camvast Productions with two friends doing videos and photography and produced a book called Glory and Triumph. His mom called him “a mover and shaker.” Lucy and Melissa have had a tough year. Bruce, who has scleroderma, an autoimmune disease that is a chronic hardening and tightening of the skin, is now terminally ill with lung cancer. Just 54, Bruce is back and forth to Sunnybrook Hospital and is very sick. “I haven’t been able to take a breath,” Lucy said in mid-August. She has plans to have a memorial for Michael, but they are on hold for now. She only knows that she wishes she had travelled more with her son when she had the chance. “I was one of these parents, I would read about it in the paper and hear it on the news and I’d say, ‘Oh my God, that poor family and on and on.’ “When I went through this I said, ‘Oh, this wasn’t supposed to be me.’”
