Woman killed in hit-and-run crash known to panhandle in traffic - Simcoe ReformerTuesday, April 04, 2017
DELHI, ON - The woman who died in a hit-and-run collision in Delhi last week was “a troubled soul” who would regularly stop traffic in town as part of an aggressive panhandling strategy.Sally Ann Dollard, 72, was pronounced dead at the scene Friday morning after she was struck by a vehicle on King Street in the area of the Delhi cenotaph. The collision occurred in the eastbound lane sometime around 6:30 a.m. The vehicle that struck Dollard did not remain.Dollard was well-known in Delhi. She lived alone in an apartment building at the corner of Main Street and William Street. She reportedly had mental health issues and struggled with poverty.“She was a troubled soul, let’s put it that way,” said neighbour Sue Huggins, who got to know Dollard in January. “She’d been here for about 10 years. It wasn’t like no one didn’t know her.“She was a little tortured. Some people wouldn’t use such kind words. I think she’s in a happier place.”In recent years, Dollard gained a reputation for venturing...
Cheryl Fitch declined rapidly following Dec. 12 diagnosis - Simcoe ReformerThursday, January 12, 2017
Congregants at Delhi United Church were looking forward to the day this year when their long-serving minister was back in the pulpit sharing words of wisdom and inspiration.
They were also looking forward to a Christmas celebration in December where Pastor Cheryl Fitch presided over another community banquet celebrating the Yuletide season.
Instead – unexpectedly and suddenly – congregations at Delhi United Church and Lynnville United Church are preparing for Fitch’s visitations and burial.
Fitch died Wednesday at Norfolk General Hospital in Simcoe. She was 59.
Fitch was diagnosed with esophageal cancer Dec. 12 and was fitted with a feeding tube soon after. She wasn’t well enough to deliver the service in Delhi Christmas Eve but was on hand to provide communion.
Fitch by then was in a weakened state and unable to attend the Christmas banquet at Delhi United the next day. As it happened, her absence was a harbinger of things to come.
“The whole group of us find it rather sudden,” Les Stedman, secretar...
Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
