Dragonfly Advisory Services provides its business to the areas of Sudbury, Elliot Lake, Espanola, and Manitoulin Island.“I’m thinking in the next few years you’ll see us in Sault Ste. Marie, North Bay,” Wirta said. “But if someone reaches out we’re not going to say no."If a person has anyone they can already go to, Wirta stressed for those resources to be used.“Let them do due diligence, and let them be there now because they’ve been there all along,” Wirta said. “If you have a lawyer, yeah, let them do their job, but we’re still here.”Wirta is hoping her type of business takes off in other markets.“Oftentimes with an aging demographic, the documentation is overwhelming,” Wirta said. “We only know what we need to know in life. If you haven’t lost someone then sometimes you don’t know where to start. That’s that missing link I found (there to be) in Sudbury. We’re also finding now that we’re getting dialogue coming in from all across Ontario, saying if this can work in Northern Ontario, then why can’t it work here?”The business can be reached by phone at 705-562-6071, or 705-589-2131, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Dragonfly Advisory Services’ website can be found at dragonflyadvisoryservices.ca.Twitter: @keith_dempseyLet's block ads!

Sam Panopoulos, Canadian inventor of Hawaiian pizza, dies at 82 - CBC.caWednesday, July 5, 2017
Canada aboard a boat, later operating several restaurants with brothers Elias and Nikitas Panopoulos.After arriving in Halifax in 1954, he moved to Sudbury, then Elliot Lake, Ont., where he worked in the mines. He later moved to Chatham, Ont., and then finally made London his permanent home.Panopoulos is pictured in the Satellite, a restaurant he owned with his brothers in Chatham, Ont. (Panopoulos family)It was Panopoulos's culinary inquisitiveness that put him on the gastronomic map.In a 2015 interview with the Atlas Obscura, Panopoulos recalled how he became fascinated with pizza during a boat stop in Naples, but that the Italian staple had a sort of mysticism in Canada.'Even Toronto didn't know anything about pizza in those days.'- Sam Panopoulos, Hawaiian pizza creator"Pizza wasn't known at all, actually," Panopoulos told the Atlas Obscura. "Even Toronto didn't know anything about pizza in those days. The only place you could have pizza was in Detroit."Puzzled about pizza's lack of popularity, Panopoulos ended up in Windsor and after watching how chefs in the southern Ontario city made their pies, he started experimenting at the brothers' Satellite restaurant in Chatham.Pizza topped with pineapple and ham has become a staple of pizza menus around the world. (The Canadian Press)No choices on your pizza"The pizza in those days was three things: dough, sauce, cheese, and mushroom, bacon, or pepperoni. That was it. You had no choices; you could get one of the three [toppings] or more of them together," the online article says.In 1962, he threw pieces of pineapple on top along with bits of ham and bacon, thinking that the sweet and savory mix would tantalize tastebuds.This photo of Panopoulos appeared on his online obituary.His culinary instincts eventually bore fruit — his creation became a staple of pizza menus the world over, though it did have a healthy portion of critics.Iceland's President Guoni Johannesson caused an online frenzy in February after telling schoolchildren that pineapple did not belo...

'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Flyers and Marlboros. (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...
Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault StarThursday, April 12, 2018
Hunter Chamberlain and their son, Bentley, died last Tuesday. Their SUV, northbound on Highway 69 near Parry Sound, crossed the centre line and collided with a transport. The SUV caught fire. Ontario Provincial Police have not released the names of the deceased pending identification by Ontario Centre of Forensic Sciences. Whitehead's best friend, Rebecca Chapman, launched a GoFundMe appeal (https://www.gofundme.com/help-support-jodey-whitehead) on Friday to help Victoria's mother, Jodey Whitehead, pay for funeral costs. Her goal was $2,000. That target was exceeded by more than 50 per cent within 24 hours with $3,186 donated by 66 contributors by 10 a.m Saturday. By Sunday afternoon, the tally grew to $5,980 from 136 donors. In an update, Chapman thanked donors and said the appeal was finished. “As per request by the family, I will be closing donations and taking the funds to them,” she said. “They decided that this is an overwhelming, but very appreciated amount of support, and that they would like me to close the fund as we have reached nearly $6,000.”Many donors offered their condolences about the trio's death. “My heart goes out to anyone impacted by this tragedy,” said Danielle Heatley. “I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and grandchild,” said MaryClaire Wood in a post. “I pray you find the strength to deal with this terrible loss.“Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Jonathan White...

— City of Brockville (@BrockvilleON) April 9, 2018Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...
