Cedar Ridge marks 100th anniversary with garden party ANGELINE MAIR scm@insidetoronto.com A house built by a wealthy financier 100 years ago continues to flourish as a home for Scarborough artists is celebrating a milestone with a garden party this Sunday. Cedar Ridge Creative Centre sits nestled in a garden oasis with the white stucco cottage peeking through the dense greenery surrounding it. Birds chirping break the silence blanketing the natural sanctuary. This home of inspiration - for many artists near and far - has been preserved by the determination of administrator and treasurer of Cedar Ridge Studio Gallery, Joy Hughes,

who has been working since the late 1960s to make art accessible to all. When it comes to Cedar Ridge, she says, “It’s very unique. And for many years (it was) the only arts centre in the whole east end.” Hughes adds, “It’s a beautiful building and it’s a shame if it was not for the arts.” Once inside the home, it’s plain to see how it provides pure inspiration to any creative mind. Artists can tap into the energy flowing from the well preserved original architecture of the century-old mansion: from the smell of the oak floors to the view of the gardens from the secondfloor weaving room and the 15-inch >>>CEDAR, page 5

Scarborough photographer Flynn inspired by nature MARIA TZAVARAS scm@insidetoronto.com Nicole Flynn has unofficially given herself the middle name “Challenge”. This is because whatever the 19-year-old Scarborough resident is faced with, she welcomes the challenge with open arms and aims to succeed at it. Flynn has a life with a packed social and extracurricular calendar, including synchronized and competitive swimming for the past 12 years, performing in local theatre and exhibiting and selling works from her more recent passion,

nature and wildlife photography. Having Down’s Syndrome hasn’t slowed her down one bit. Starting today, Flynn will be exhibiting some of her photography at an exhibition called Toronto: Street Level, a group photography exhibition that will display works that showcase our city from a unique perspective. The exhibit is also part of Toronto’s annual Abilities Arts Festival (AAF). “It’s really looking at Toronto through the lens of people with disabilities,” said Rina Fraticelli, AAF’s executive director, “...the photographers come from all different >>>PHOTO, page 9

Birchmount Park Collegiate Grade 12 student Phillip Rosa, left, meets Canadian Olympic triathlete Simon Whitfield and checks out his medals during a visit to the school yesterday morning.

Olympian visits Birchmount Park MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com He looked nervous at the start, before the flood of questions began. But as Simon Whitfield – goldmedal triathlete, Canadian flagbearer at the London Olympics – told students at Birchmount Park Collegiate Institute yesterday, feeling nervous is a great thing, if you embrace it as an opportunity. “There’s a lot of power in that,” said Whitfield, a four-time Olympian who described the pressure of competing at the Olympics as overwhelming. He was “kind of nervous” about waving the flag in the moments, watched by millions of Canadians @SCMirror

this summer, when Whitfield led the Olympic team into the stadium; at first, he said, he waved it gently. “I learned to get really into it.” Whitfield grew up in Kingston, entered his first triathlon on a bet he couldn’t finish it, and finished “way back.” As a teenage athlete, Whitfield said, he wasn’t great, but applied himself. In high school, he loved applying himself to something. At 16, he left for Australia on his own, and never looked back. At 19, he went to France to race with a team there. He was “all in” for his sport, which combines cycling, swimming and a foot race. This week, after 14 world victories, 21 podium finishes and 12 Canadian

championships, he told students at Birchmount, a specialized sports school that has sent five alumni to the Olympics, he envied them going forward. “I’m at the other end of my sporting career. I have a couple of years left,” said Whitfield, who was soon quite at ease with the students, telling them they can reach the highest levels of success in sport once they commit “to train on the days the others won’t.” Kim Provost, president of the school’s athletic council, asked Whitfield about his crashes and injuries. Whitfield recalled the accident - falling from his bicycle onto his >>>SETBACKS, page 20

Police believe there may be other victims.

Six teenage boys face charges in connection with a robbery Wednesday. Police allege a 21-year-old man was riding his bicycle in the Lawrence Avenue and Port Union Road area when six boys came up to him and demanded his bike around 5:45 p.m. The man fled to his home. The teens followed the man, forced their way into his apartment and assaulted him and his parents. Police arrested the suspects a short distance away. Two 14 year olds, three 15 year olds and a 16 year old have been charged with robbery and unlawfully being in a dwelling. One 14 year old is also charged with assault and assault with a weapon. The teens can’t be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

n Swarming suspects

Police are looking for five teen males after a 22-year-old woman was swarmed and robbed Tuesday. Police said the woman was walking through a tunnel near Progress Avenue and McCowan Road when the males approached from behind and surrounded her around 7 p.m. One suspect took the victim’s cellphone and bag containing computer equipment and fled with his accomplices. The victim escaped injury. Three suspects are black, 15 to 18 years old with thin builds. The other two are white, 15 to 18 with thin builds. Anyone with information on either of the above incidents should call 416-808-4300 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477).

Fundraising gala set to honour triumphant women MIKE ADLER madler@insidetoronto.com Dr. Roz Roach wants to build a place which can leave no child behind. The time for a youth centre Roach calls The Changa House is now, she said this week, because we keep “losing our children to violence.” At a press conference Tuesday, she mentioned a double homicide that morning in Rexdale. Two more young men had been shot down. “When will this stop? What are we doing?” Roach asked at Dr. Roz’s Healing Place, a Brimley Road shelter for women and children where she is executive director. “I call on the public to step up,” and join the effort to find $5 million for Changa House, she said. Roach said the programs politicians are counting on to stop such violence aren’t effective because they end.

After six months or a year, when the investments run out, youth that the anti-violence programs work with can feel abandoned, even devastated. What was gained in their behaviour can be lost, warned Roach, a registered nurse and psychotherapist. Children at risk The results affect not just our city’s “at risk” youth but all of us, she said. “At the end of the day all our children are ‘at risk’ because of the society we live in.” There’s no way to get rid of the violence influencing families and homes unless the anti-violence education offered to children is sustained from a first contact until they have matured in a “wholesome place of being,” and are already to take

‘At the end of the day all our children are ‘at risk’ because of the society we live in.’ - Roz Roach care of their own lives, she said. “We need programs that will last for the lifetime of the child.” Changa House will be unique in practicing this long-term, “holistic approach” to children, who can later return there and teach when today’s educators are ready to pass the torch, Roach said. Roach started the fundraising campaign in 2009 with support from NBA star Jamaal Magloire and former Scarborough MPP Alvin Curling, and on Tuesday said it has raised a few hundred thousand dollars so far.

She said a foundation, formed a year ago, incorporated recently to help raise the $5 million needed to build Changa House and work with youth in the community. Roach, who raised and negotiated $5 million to reopen the former Emily Stowe Shelter for Women as the Healing Place in 2004, said she tells bankers, “If you invest $1 million in this project you get so much back.” Violence a disease The group’s biggest fundraising event this year will be its annual Celebrating Women Who Have Triumphed Awards night slated for Friday, Oct. 19 at Queen Palace Banquet Hall in Scarborough for $125 a ticket. It will feature former residents of the Healing Place who overcame violence in their lives.

Violence, like a social disease, has infiltrated our homes, said Atiba Roach, coordinator of the Healing Place’s VIBE (Vital Intervention Breakthrough Empowerment) interactive music program for youth for the past six years. Frustrated and angry “They are frustrated and angry. They don’t understand their value or their worth,” but with the right programs, they can be shown how valuable they are, he said. Roach said she was negotiating for a site in Markham, but added “people are battling for the project” and Changa House may be built elsewhere. Her dream, she said, is to start construction by turning the soil on Dec. 13, 2013. “I like to do things on my birthday.”

Stolen pears taken from community’s most needy

The Scarborough Mirror is published every Thursday and Friday at 175 Gordon Baker Rd., Toronto, ON M2H 0A2, by Toronto Community News, a Division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

Youth volunteers add value, energy to organizations

To the editor: My family was out at an environment event earlier this summer, and upon returning to our Scarborough home we noticed that our fruit tree in our backyard had been emptied entirely. No one saw a thing. Several of our neighbours would usually be given baskets of fruit from us when our pear tree was ready to be picked. The pears taken from our tree were small and not ripe.

T

he recent selection of 34 members to the newly formed Youth Advisory Council by the Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan AM Games organizing committee recognizes the importance of youth participation in ensuring the success of such a large scale event. “Inspiring and engaging the next generation of leaders is central to the vision of the 2015 Pan Am/ Parapan Am Games,” said Ian Troop, CEO of the 2015 Games. “We want the Games to our view touch as many people as possible and this council will be Much-needed the driving voice to ensure the Games are youth-focused and perspective inclusive.” And Toronto is well-repreprovided sented with the majority of youth advisors and ambassadors being from the city including Cynthia Berringer from Etobicoke, Newton Asare II and Alita Fernandez both from Scarborough, and Arabi Rajeswaran from North York. Toronto Police Services is also calling out to youth for its new campaign to create a video or poster educating others on when to call 911 and how to avoid pocket dials that clog up the emergency line. More organizations should follow suit and actively engage youth for their input and creativity. Opportunity exists anywhere there is a need for more resources, especially when local community groups are stretched to provide services on a shrinking budget. It should no longer be the sole responsibility of such youth-focused organizations as Youth Employment Services in Etobicoke, Youth Unlimited serving North York, or YouthLink in Scarborough to reach out to the next generation. Nor should it rest just on the school communities that educate the students throughout the week. But we can learn from them as they have already demonstrated the benefits of engaging youth through the programs and activities they offer. Those benefits include allowing youth to divert their energy and attention to something positive rather than finding themselves getting into trouble. It also instills the value of leadership and volunteerism at an early age. Perhaps more significantly, given the additional responsibility of contributing to a larger project, this younger demographic will grow up and become more active citizens in their community beyond their youth. That will have a greater impact on the community changing for the better – now and in the future. Toronto Community News is a division of Metroland Media Group Ltd.

I’m afraid this is about the NHL lockout I t’s tough enough for the average person to understand what the so-called “core” economic issues are in the ongoing collective bargaining negotiations between the National Hockey League and the NHL Players’ Association. What’s really confusing onlookers is the negotiating process itself. To listen to the bafflegab coming from NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr during press conferences, you’d swear this is what the actual discussions sound like behind closed doors. Owners: “We’re afraid this is our final offer.” Players: “Are you sure?” Owners: “We’re positive. There’s no absolutely no wiggle room at all.” Players: “Well, then, there is nothing left to discuss. Good day, gentlemen.” Owners: “Hey, where are you going?”

but seriously

jamie wayne

Players: “You said it was your final offer and considering the players can’t possibly accept it, we’re out of here. Good day to you, too.” Owners: “We said nothing of the sort. We said we were ‘afraid’ it’s our final offer. There’s a huge difference.” Players: “So it may not have been your final offer?” Owners: “You shouldn’t jump to that conclusion, either. Frankly, it all depends.” Players: “On what?” Owners: “Well, for one, on whether your last offer was your final one.” Players: “Alas, we’re afraid it was.” Owners: “Sorry to hear that. And now if you’ll

excuse us, we have to leave.” Players: “How come?” Owners: “Because the owners can’t possibly accept your final offer.” Players: “We didn’t say it was our final offer. Like you, we said we were ‘afraid’ it was our final offer. We’re afraid you’re putting words in our mouths now.” Owners: “Take that back.” Players: “Take what back?” Owners: “That we were putting words in your mouths.” Players: “We never said that. We distinctly said we were ‘afraid’ you were.” Owners: “Can we just stick to the matter at hand? Was it or wasn’t it your final offer? How many times do we have to ask you?” Players: “How the heck should we know how many times you’re going to have to ask us? Do we look like mind readers?” Owners: “The issue isn’t the number of times we

have to ask you whether of not you’re psychics, it’s whether or not you’ve given us your final offer. I’m afraid you’re not paying attention.” Players: “Take that back.” Owners: “Take what back?” Players: “That we’re not paying attention.” Owners: “Uh, uh, uh. We said we were ‘afraid’ you were not paying attention.” Players: “We’re afraid we’re getting nowhere.” Owners: “Are you saying what we think you’re saying?” Players: “We’re afraid we are. We’re afraid you’ve left us no choice but to come back tomorrow and do this all over again.” Owners: “We were afraid you were going to say that.” n Jamie Wayne is a lifelong columnist, who takes writing very seriously.

>>>from page 1 wainscotting and horse door in the carriage house where woodcarvers work their magic. In 1927, the home was sold to John Fraser, a Toronto financier. The Frasers’ love for gardens and their appreciation for the finer things in life resulted in the ivy-covered stucco house, gardener’s cottage, three bay garage and stables being kept in excellent condition. Fraser called it Cedar Ridge.

Arts centre Hughes says, “John Fraser’s daughter has always said to me, she is just so thrilled that it (Cedar Ridge) turned into an arts centre rather than a nursing home.” In 1977, plans to turn the 12-acre site into a children’s playground, wading pool and baseball diamond surfaced, but local residents opposed the idea. Scarborough approached Guildcrest Studios about redirecting their fundraising initiative to Cedar Ridge, which was an opportunity to develop the arts centre and gallery. During the restoration, Guildcrest Studios became Cedar Ridge Studio Gallery and continues to have an

active presence on site today, partnering with the city to program the gallery, and run annual special events. Susan Kohler, senior arts consultant, Arts Services, Cultural Services Economic Development and Culture Scarborough Civic Centre, it’s not unusual that many artists continue to have a deep connection to the centre, she has seen many young students start at Cedar Ridge as camp members and graduate to volunteering and some continue to be employed by the centre. She also adds “Artists continue to return here for classes - not that they need them anymore - they simply keep coming back. People bond with this place.” One of these artists is Alice Montgomery who continues to take pottery classes at the centre even though she has created and sold many items. The sixty-two-year-old Scarborough resident started attending pottery classes two years ago at the centre on a neighbour’s recommendation. “It’s not something I would have heard of,” she said. Montgomery said her love for clay started when she was at the cottage. “I always liked clay. We always had it at the cottage!” she jokes.

She says a big part of being at the centre is the “at home” feeling of being there. “Coming from the parking lot you are already relaxed. We have lunch in the house’s sun room, which is next to the gallery.” Montgomery, who is a gardener, loves the gardens surrounding the carriage house, too, because she can incorporate different leaves into her pottery. The pottery class was in the basement but it’s moved up into the carriage house now and she says, “the doors are open and the air is coming in and you can see the gardens. She loves “just being here” and working with professional staff and fellow artists, who offer tips, hints and expertise, which help her grow as an artist. Montgomery also had a “hard time” when it came to showing her work. But her instructors encouraged her and “showed me it was fun and to be part of the action,” she says. Now she sees people drinking from a mug she made and says: “Oh, that’s a nice mug!” In addition, to traditional pottery, the centre also offers Raku, which is non-functional Japanese pottery fired in an outdoor pit. “It’s really exciting,” says Montgomery. Cedar Ridge is celebrating its

100th anniversary with a garden party and open house this Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. It includes a historical gallery exhibition, artist demonstrations in the studios, and afternoon tea in the garden. For information, call 416-3964026. Mansion built in 1912 The picturesque mansion was built in 1912 as a summer home for the Cummings family. Charles Cummings was President of C.C. Cummings Ltd., the Slater Shoe empire and owner/manager of the Lumsden building, at Yonge and Adelaide streets, once one of Toronto’s more prominent landmarks. In 1911, Cummings began assembling land for the Scarboro Golf and Country Club and acquired the property on which Cedar Ridge now stands as one of the several sites to be set aside for possible sale to club members. Cummings hired R. Nicholls to build a large summer home, which was named Uplands, for his family. With business interests in Toronto and a home in Rosedale, the Cummings used Uplands infrequently, mostly during the summer months.

In 1927, the home was sold to John Fraser, a Toronto financier. The Frasers’ love for gardens and their appreciation for the finer things in life resulted in the ivy-covered stucco house, gardener’s cottage, three bay garage and stables being kept in excellent condition. The property, which Fraser renamed Cedar Ridge. Meanwhile, in 1932, Rosa and Spencer Clark had established the Guild of All Arts at the former summer home of Col. Brickford, overlooking the Scarborough Bluffs. In 1968, the Guildwood School of Arts and Crafts was established, with space provided by the Clarks in a building known as Corycliff Lodge. In 1974, the non-profit organization was given its official charter and became known as the Guildcrest Studios. When it became apparent that the space was too small for the future needs of the growing organization, fund raising initiatives were begun to finance expansion. Following the death of Fraser, Cedar Ridge was acquired by Metropolitan Toronto but by a previous land exchange agreement, the house and surrounding 12 acres came into Scarborough’s possession.

Photo/COURTESY

Scarborough photographer Nicole Flynn’s works will be on display at the Abilities Arts Festival.

Photo exhibit opens today >>>from page 1 perspectives, different ages, different races, different abilities, levels of experience and aesthetics.” The photography exhibition is just one of the many events taking place as a part of the AAF, an almost threeweek festival that includes musical and theatrical performances, film screenings and a media festival. This year marks AAF’s 10th anniversary. Fraticelli said participating artists hail from all over the GTA and surrounding areas. The year’s festival also features guest artists from British Columbia and the United Kingdom.

Remove obstacles Fraticelli said the AAF organization and festival have grown a lot in the past 10 years, and is important in being able to showcase disability arts and culture. “Our job is to remove the obstacles from either the artists in doing their work or the audience in seeing the work,” she said. “It could be as simple as wheelchairs accessibility or they need ASL or making sure the film has subtitles for those who have hearing impediments.” The event kicked off with a gala celebration last night. Flynn, who loves to dress up, said she was excited to be attending the gala. Her mother Kathy said it’s a full

circle moment for her daughter because in past years they’ve enjoyed being visitors to the event and now Flynn is an exhibiting artist. Flynn said she is looking forward to exhibiting her work in Toronto, after selling and showing her work for the past two summers at the farmer’s market in Madoc, ON, where her family has a cottage. “Painters will come and buy her photos and then go home and use them to paint them into their own paintings, so they use them as a jumping point,” Kathy Primrose, her mom, said. Because she loves nature photography, Flynn said she gets a lot of her inspiration in natural areas such as Madoc, Algonquin Park and from wildlife centres she has visited. However, her photos aren’t limited to nature and wildlife, she also likes to photograph street scenes and anything that catches her eye. Good eye “Nicole is often told she has a unique and an amazing perspective,” Primrose said. “I get that a lot but mostly I get that I have a good eye,” Flynn said. The public can catch Flynn’s photography work starting today at the opening of the Toronto: Street Level exhibit as part of the AAF, which runs until Oct. 11. For more information on the festival, please call 416-593-9475 or visit www.abilitiesartsfestival.org

Do you feel that? There's that recognizable chill in the air. Fall's back with its shorter days and changing leaves. It's time again to shut down the cottage for the winter. You spend so much time and money on your family cottage, that it only makes sense to do all you can to protect it. By being as thorough as possible, you'll not only keep out the weather and little critters, but according Desjardins General Insurance, you'll also keep your property insurance costs down by reducing the chance of damage over the winter and any resulting claims. Keep in mind that on average closing your cottage can take up to four weekends. Aim to be finished by the Thanksgiving weekend because the cold and frost tends to arrive earlier in cottage country. Here's a brief check list to help you stay organized: • Take a good look around your entire property. Identify anything that may need an emergency repair before you close for the season and make sure there's time to get it done. A good example is roof repairs because snow and ice over

the winter could make the problem much worse. • Animal and weather proof your place: Clean out the gutters and the chimney. Before you leave for the season, be sure to cover the chimney to keep out the weather and animals. Check for and seal any small openings. Secure and seal all the windows

and doors. • Make your cottage burglarproof. Ultimately, you want to your place as uninteresting as possible. If you have a gate at the entrance of your driveway, chain it up. Tidy up outside, packing up all outdoor furniture and removing any fire hazards. Inside, close your blinds, curtains and/or shutters. • Clean out your kitchen and fridge. Canned food can expand and possibly explode over the winter and other food items can attract mice. Leave your cupboards spotless so that you won't come back to any surprises in the spring. If you'd rather not bring it all the way back to the city, consider throwing an end-of-season party for your neighbours or donate it to a local food-bank. • Turn off the water, electricity and in some cases the natural gas. Be sure to drain the pipes to prevent freezing and cracking. Pouring environmentally friendly non-toxic antifreeze (used in RVs) into your toilets is a good idea if you're unable to drain them completely.

Create a timeless look in your home Interior design trends change with the seasons, and keeping up with the latest looks can be challenging, not to mention expensive. That's why it's important to remember that keeping your home décor modern isn't so much about buying trendy furniture as it is about being practical. Invest in timeless pieces that are suited to your lifestyle and create a calm environment. Choose multi-functional products with hidden technology and beautiful design to create a modern feel. Think televisions hidden in cabinets, speakers mounted behind the wall, and sleek kitchen faucets with a hidden sprayer. Technology that seamlessly blends into a space will always feel new. Consider incorporating accessories in shades such as clean green, saffron, ocean blue, and magenta to create a soothing atmosphere that will never feel tired. “Adding sleek pieces in a colour that you'll always love – rather than a trendy colour – makes your style timeless, not to mention walletfriendly,” says Jo Alcorn, a Torontobased interior design expert. Update fabrics to those that feature timeless geometric designs, overlapping layers, or stripes. All of these can instantly make a home more contemporary without a large investment.

Clockwise from top left: Cocalo’s Harlow pillow, Phoenix Products Inc.’s Hi Arc Kitchen Faucet, Z-Lite’s Ashbury pendant fixture, and Simpli Home’s Cosmopolitan Medium Rectangular Storage Ottoman are all available online at SHOP.ca.

Sleek and simple architectural details add maximum design impact and can become the focal point in any room. “Paying attention to your hardware including cabinet handles, light fixtures and even faucets can play a huge role in making your place look more modern,” says Alcorn. When considering furniture, look for pieces with glass or painted

wood, and materials like coloured acrylic, fibreglass, and chrome. These features will ensure your choices stand the test of time. Nothing dates a space like clutter. Organize and store - or even neatly display - magazines, newspapers, and books. Electronic cords should be off the floor and not visible to keep your room looking neat and clean. – newscanada.com

Transit

19 | SCARBOROUGH MIRROR | Friday, September 21, 2012

TTC disappointed with Metrolinx’s plans for LRT lines RAHUL GUPTA rgupta@insidetoronto.com The CEO for the TTC says he’s disappointed about a decision made by Metrolinx to restrict the operation of four planned light rail transit lines (LRT) to the private sector. Andy Byford said he was concerned by the choice of Metrolinx to overrule the TTC and turn over the running of the Eglinton-Scarborough Crosstown, Finch, Sheppard and Scarborough LRT lines to a private sector operator when the first of the lines begins running in 2020. Having the TTC in charge of operating the LRT lines would have been much simpler from a maintenance and operating standpoint, said Byford yesterday. “Our preference was to lead operations on the lines because it would have been simpler to integrate the systems,” said Byford. He said the TTC continues to work with Metrolinx on co-ordination efforts, and that discussions between the two parties remained “professional, productive and amicable.” In a Sept. 19 letter, Metrolinx informed the TTC it will work with Infrastructure Ontario to pursue an Alternative Financing and Procurement (AFP) process that will see private sector companies submit bids to operate and maintain the lines. It has used AFP on several projects including the planned air rail link to open in 2015. The decision to dismiss the TTC from the running of the LRT lines could set back transit service in Toronto over the long term, warns a city councillor. Joe Mihevc, former vice-chair of the TTC, said he is concerned Metrolinx’s decision will result in scheduling chaos for transit riders. “You’re creating multiple transit systems in this city and that’s not healthy,” said Mihevc, long-time councillor for St. Paul’s West yesterday. “You could have a different set of operating guidelines, unnecessary conflicts. Overall, this is bad for the city.” But his St. Paul’s counterpart Josh Matlow thinks the plan won’t make much of a difference to riders traveling between the LRT lines and the TTC who are more interested in being able to travel with ease. “People aren’t too concerned with the colour of paint on the trains.” He slammed the “parochial” attitudes of critics of private sector transit operators, saying the trend for transit planning is to create regional networks that integrate travel across multiple boundaries. Concerns about integrating the separate transit systems are unwarranted, said Metrolinx spokesperson Vanessa Thomas. She said riders will only have to pay one fare to use both transit systems, with the cost of the fare determined based on what the TTC charges at the time. Riders will also be able to transfer between the two systems at no additional cost. *Easy Home *Family Karate *Little Caesar’s *Michael’s of Canada *Smart Source CheCk out this week’s flyers for money-saving deals from your neighbourhood retailers.

Education

‘Setbacks are things that move you forward,’ Whitfield tells students >>>from page 1 head, he said – that forced him to withdraw from the London triathlon. He didn’t mention he needed stitches to close a wound in his left foot. There have been moments in his career, he said, when he thought “This is the end,” but kept on going. He broke both his wrists in two places, broke his collarbone, but took his recovery from such injuries as a challenge. “Things you think are setbacks are things that move

you forward,” Whitfield said, adding athletes who have not overcome setbacks, don’t know how to deal with them - and they will come. “It’s nice to see someone that’s made it,” said Provost, who later presented Whitfield with a school pin and a pen. As an athlete, the twelfth grader said, “you train so hard and some days you feel like you’re going nowhere.” It was clear Whitfield and his achievements were stoking Olympic dreams in Scarborough.

Neil McCann, in Grade 10, asked Whitfield what went through his head when he won his gold medal at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia. (Whitfield thought about the training he had done and people that helped him.) Later, McCann said he finished second in a triathlon recently and fell in love with the sport. He’s studied videos of Whitfield training, considers him his idol “by far,” and said it felt great just having the Olympic flagbearer at the Danforth

Avenue school. Tenth grader Carter Wood, who wanted to know how hard Whitfield had to train, said he was inspired watching the Olympics and “will push myself to get there” in track and field or the triathlon. Wood said people at Birchmount look up to Whitfield as a high-class athlete. “I think this will get a lot more kids out doing more sports and hopefully pushing for the Olympics,” he said. During the second of two school

assemblies Thursday, Sept. 20, Whitfield mentioned only one regret, that he “didn’t do a very good job” of juggling school and sports. He wishes he applied himself to his studies more, he said. Sadib Haque, also in Grade 10, had a different sort of question: “Do you get a lot of girls?” Whitfield laughed, and said he has two children and a wife he met 10 years ago. For asking the question, Haque briefly got to wear Whitfield’s gold medal on stage.

• Replacing your mattress: If you’re sleeping on an innerspring mattress that’s more than 10 years old, it may not be providing the support and comfort you need for a good night’s sleep. If you sleep with a partner, a pocket-sprung mattress (where each spring is sewn individually into its own pocket) provides excellent support and makes it less likely you’ll feel your partner moving around. • Changing your wall colour: Bedrooms painted in warm, jazzy tones like yellow, red and orange may look dramatic, but can also make you feel energized when you’re trying to wind down. Look to cool hues in the blue, green and purple families for a more relaxing environment. • Investing in a bedroom set: A mishmash of unmatched furniture can make a room
