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.

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.

11-year-old Riya Rajkumar remembered as a dreamer - CTV News WindsorSaturday, March 2, 2019
Last Updated Wednesday, February 20, 2019 7:05PM EST
BRAMPTON, Ont. -- An 11-year-old girl allegedly killed by her father in southern Ontario was a dreamer, a dancer and a singer who "always saw the good in every situation."
It was standing room only at an Etobicoke funeral home as friends and family of Rajkumar gathered on Wednesday.
In a eulogy delivered during the Hindu service, which was held at the Lotus Funeral and Cremation Centre on Wednesday morning, Riya was described as a "positive child" who loved life and "saw the good in every situation."
On Tuesday night, about 100 mourners gathered to listen to speeches, poems and songs as the community remembered Riya Rajkumar in Brampton, Ont.
"My daughter Riya was taken from me too early," Priya Ramdin, who did not attend the vigil, said in a statement read by Peel police Deputy Chief Chris McCord.
"She never liked to be negative and always saw the good in every situation. If I'm ever upset, she would say 'Mama, don't be sad, look at the positives."'
The day Riya died -- Valentine's Day -- was also her and her mother's birthdays.
"Early that day, we went to do our nails and her choice of colour was red," Ramdin said.
"She was so excited for her birthday, looking forward to having dinner later that evening. Never did I think that my daughter woul...
'A launching pad to start over': Three women find new lives with support of Kingston Interval House - The Kingston Whig-StandardSaturday, March 2, 2019
Australia.She described their life Down Under as "very comfortable," and admitted their new one in Kingston was a significant transition. She wants to work, but she's found that Ontario's social assistance has made it next to impossible. She said the problem is that if you earn more than $500 a month, the province starts taxing it dollar-for-dollar up to 50 per cent. After 50 per cent, a person loses social assistance and any benefits, she said."It makes it frightening. I know why people don't want to get off of it," Wiwchar said."I went to an employment agency and was told basically I'm unemployable to them … I went home and I cried. How am I unemployable? I worked as a medic, as a makeup artist, I managed retail, and I have office training."Kerry is also on disability due to severe arthritis and is diagnosed bipolar. Her life has not been an easy one. In the winter of 2016 she says police recommended she reach out to Interval House because her ex-boyfriend, who constantly assaulted and stole from Kerry, had been released on parole and hadn't attended his halfway house."He just came and went as he pleased," Kerry said of her relationship with the man. "His whole family for six years just totally took over my life … he would inject me [with hydromorphone] while I was sleeping."At one point, she said, he kept her overdosed for three days so that he could steal her medications. Her 10-year-old son and dog at the time waited for her to wake."My son just laid with me," Kerry said. "He should have called an ambulance but he was afraid he'd be taken away."Taking her medications left her mentally unstable and unable to fully care for herself. Eventually it hospitalized her for five months, forcing Family and Children's Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington to take her preteen son away.Kerry was once a successful medical secretary. She says she was good at her job, but she was addicted to crack cocaine. She was introduced to the drug by another former partner who was also abusive.When she learned that her former partner was being released and was on the run, she was scared that he'd kill her. She called Interval House, stayed in the shelter for six months, and then lived in one of Robin's Hope's accessible units for nearly a year and a half.Kerry has been clean for three and a half years and gives back to Interval House by running painting classes at Robin's Hope. Kerry has also done her best to separate herself from destructive people, and while her sister has custody of her son, she said that relationship is becoming stronger every visit.Kerry explains you have to want to get better."I wanted to do the programs. You don't realize about how naive you are about red flags [in relationships] and boundaries," Kerry said. "I didn't realize how much of a sucker I felt I was, but also how mentally unhealthy I felt that I was to let someone control my mind like that. Call you stupid, make you feel less than."Making Claire feel she was "less than" was her former spouse's strategy to control her. A highly educated woman with a doctorate, Claire was often invited to speak at conferences around the wo...
