Island, Myrtle Beach and many local course locations. He was a long-time member of The Glendale Golf and Country Club in Hamilton and played regularly in his later years at Sawmill Golf Course in Fenwick. He was certainly a character and loved his good friends, a good laugh, a good drink and a good time. During his last year, John took great comfort in his family and friends and the small things in life. He was very fond of Coronation Street, his couch, country music and any kind of candy he could get his hands on. The family wishes to give special thanks to long-time friends Joseph Pierce of Ancaster and Nick Kovljenic of Hamilton whose regular visits to St. Peter’s kept Johns’ spirits up. Special thanks also to the late Bruce Nicholson of Grimsby and Gerry Garand of Aldershot who brought laughter, companionship and comfort to his time at St. Peter’s. The family is especially grateful to Dr. Richard Seeley for a lifetime of care, and to Dr. Shaad and for the staff on 3West who took great care of John at St. Peter’s. Deep gratitude to those on 3West and 2East who came together and went over and above to ensure that John passed away with the comfort and closeness of his wife next to him. He will be missed.

Secretary of State will be the leading designer of U.S. foreign policy.” [TheHill] “Jared Kushner's Conflicts Of Interest Questioned By Democratic Lawmakers” by Cody Fenwick: “Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware and Maryland's Rep. Elijah Cummings from the House Oversight Committee signed the letter. "Federal conflict of interest laws prohibit a federal official, such as Mr. Kushner, from profiting off of his government work," they wrote. "Neither the White House nor Mr. Kushner's attorneys has confirmed which financial assets Mr. Kushner still controls - rendering oversight of Mr. Kushner's recusals and compliance with conflict-of-interest law impossible," they continue.”[Patch] INTERVIEW -- Freshman Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD 8th District) speaks to JI’s Aaron Magid about his Jewish identity, his views on the Middle East peace process and the recent rise in anti-Semitism. A graduate of Harvard Law School, Raskin’s career has shifted from the classroom to Capitol Hill. Nonetheless, one theme has consistently remained: “Everything I always wanted to be in life started with the letter ‘p’: professor, politician, philosopher, poet, a playwright and a professional football player,” he told Jewish Insider in an in-depth interview, adding, “I’m a big chess player and a bit of an insomniac so I stay up late playing chess online.”On U.S. support for a two-state solution: “If we can’t make peace between peace between J Street and AIPAC, what are our chances of making peace between Israel and the Palestinians? I hope that I will be part of solutions that strengthen and fortify Israel and bring real peace between Israel and the Palestinians and make the whole region a source of prosperity and justice rather than unremitting conflict and terrorism... I favor a two state solution, which has been the American position for decades. I think it’s also been the Israeli position for decades. I am for a strong resilient prosperous Israel. I am for the vindication of the rights and aspirations of the Palestinians too who have been the victims of lots of events all over the world including from their own leaders.” Read the full interview here [JewishInsider] HAPPENING TODAY: Former President Bill Clinton will be speaking at a Brookings Institute event at 2:00 PM about Yitzchak Rabin's peace negotiations with the Palestinians and relationship with global leaders.

Reidsville man accepts plea in shooting of his father at funeral home - Greensboro News & RecordTuesday, January 31, 2017
WENTWORTH — A man originally charged with attempting to kill his father at their family funeral home will serve at least 31 months in prison.
Garcia Fenwick Johnson, 46, could serve as much as 50 months and be eligible for work release after taking an Alford plea to assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, common law forgery and knowingly administering a false or fraudulent oath of affirmation.
As part of the plea, the two latter charges were consolidated into the Class E Assault felony. Johnson originally was charged with one count of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.
Johnson, a longtime Reidsville resident, was accused of shooting his father, James Johnson, several times on July 24, 2015, inside the family-owned Johnson & Son Funeral home at 115 Holderby St. in Reidsville.
An Alford plea means that Johnson does not admit guilt but accepts that there was sufficient evidence to convict him at trial.
District Attorney Craig Blitzer told Judge Lori Hamilton before sentencing in Rockingham County Superior Court on Monday that his office felt that “sometimes getting...
Council votes down height restriction for Willow Tree tower - The Coast HalifaxThursday, September 15, 2016
The proposed structure would be the second-tallest building in Halifax, narrowly beaten by Fenwick Tower in the south end. City staff say it’s improved in several ways from earlier designs, but is still way too tall for the area.
“While staff agree that a building of some height on this corner could be accommodated given the size of the adjacent intersection and the nature of two of the flanking streets, the proposed height cannot be supported given the existing surrounding context of building heights which top out in the range of 14 to 17 storeys,” writes Purvis in his report.
Councillor David Hendsbee argued that the planning department was “handicapping” the developer by limiting its design to only several stories above what’s currently allowed under zoning regulations.
“With all due respect...when’s the last time staff built a building?” asked Hendsbee.
In response, HRM urban design manager Jacob Ritchie took to Twitter to note that “some staff used to work in the private sector with some of these same developers.”
The motion to limit the building’s height to 20 storeys was ultimately defeated with only councillors Watts, Waye Mason, Tony Mancini and Lorelei Nicoll voting in its favour.
The finalized plans for the building could still wind up shorter than 29 storeys, but that will be something APL and HRM discuss as they move ahead with a site-specific development policy. That document will return to council for first and second readings and a public hearing before either being approved, dismissed or modified further.
A separate staff recommendation that council did bless with its approval separates APL’s tower on Quinpool from Westwood Development’s proposal around the corner on Robie Street. The two developments were originally linked due to their close proximity, but will now proceed separately through HRM’s planning process.
Developer Danny Chedrawe was previously proposing an 18-storey building on the site of the former Cruikshank funeral home, but his company is now revising those designs. HRM’s planning department is recommending a height restriction for that development of just six storeys.

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. (...
