CUDDY SHARK: Hurricanes, Tigers paying for slow starts now - YorkRegion.comWednesday, December 14, 2016
There’s too many courses in the industry, especially for this area.”
Hicks died Dec. 6. He was 88.
After retiring and selling his former business, Gormley Aggregates, Hicks, then 62, built the Cardinal property into four 18-hole golf courses, including its signature Redcrest course, which opened in 2009.
Hicks, who started Cardinal as a nine-hole facility in the late 1980s and increased it to 27 holes in 1990, built the property into a popular public play facility.
Visitations are scheduled for Dec. 15 and 16, from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. at Marshall Funeral Home in Richmond Hill. Funeral services will be held Dec. 17 at 11 a.m. in Richmond Hill.
Just Jawin’ … The Aurora Sports Hall of Fame has a knack for getting things done. Its latest business partner to come on board is PACE Credit Union with a $15,000 three-year commit to support the induction eve meet-and-greet and the new inductee wall at the Stronach Aurora Recreation Complex … On the topic of halls of fame, the Newmarket shrine includes three “teams”, each based on success over multiple, but not necessarily consecutive years. Which team of Smoke Rings, girls soccer Lasers or women’s intermediate softball teams stands out? The thing is, they are in each case actually three different teams. Truth is, their brands have been inducted … What a dilemma for York Region high school football coaches in choosing an all-star quarterback. Huron Heights Warriors’ Colin Grant, the 2016 league MVP, who steers his team’s option-oriented ground attack got the nod. However, if there was a QB the past two seasons, you might pay to watch, it would be St. Maximilian’s Kolbe Mustangs’ throw-first Ben Langlois.

Talented Stouffville mother gives from her heart - YorkRegion.comFriday, October 28, 2016
St. Mark Church, Stouffville.And it matters.She’s also been an active participant in several Whitchurch-Stouffville Protestant churches, including Wesley United near Gormley. It doesn’t matter.This talented 56-year-old mother of one gives from the heart regardless of denomination.“I’ve always believed everyone’s deserving of respect regardless of religion,” she says. “Some of our traditions may differ, but we all worship the same God.”Eugenie has enthusiastically put her principles into practice, serving as choir director at both St. Mark and Wesley. Last month, however, she abandoned these roles to assume a similar position at Church of the Good Shepherd, Thornhill.But locally, all isn’t lost. She’ll continue her associations here, only in different capacities.A native of Singapore and the daughter of gifted parents, Eugenie immigrated to Canada in 1981. Although educated in her native country where her father served as a university professor, she maintained the desire to establish a new life in a new land, a decision of which she’s never been sorry. Her link with Singapore remains, however. One brother and one sister still live there. A second sister resides in Orangeville.Eugenie admits it was Sto...

'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...

— 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...
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...
