My Son The Hurricane to launch "Ride The Bullet" tour in Stratford - The Beacon HeraldSaturday, March 02, 2019
Rob was the first one and we love a great venue. There's, I can say probably in Ontario, Neat Coffee Shop in Burnstown, Sanctuary in Ridgeway, and Revival House are three old churches that have turned into venues, and we love them all," O'Shea said.The tour's inaugural Stratford show also celebrates a contribution to the band's new album by Stratford musician Darren Dumas - known as Mista D, the lead singer of The Salads - who will join My Son The Hurricane on stage at Revival House."He's on this new record, so he'll be joining us for a tune. I love The Salads. Chris, our guitarist, and I are both really big Salads fans, so one of the things on all our records is we always try to get one of the people we've looked up to," O'Shea said. "So we've had people from the Pocket Dwellers, U.S.S., D-Sisive, and now Darren. I still can't believe that we get to tour with these big bands. It's really nice to be able to reach out and have a hero of your's sing on a song."Having performed in Stratford for the first time last year as part of their 2018 tour, the band's wildly-energetic live performances are likely familiar to most of its local fans, but this year, thanks to the addition of Dumas and a whole album's worth of new, original songs, O'Shea expect's Hurricane's Stratford show to be a dance party like none that have come before."The common response (after our shows) is people say, ‘I haven't had a good time like that in so long,' or, ‘You looked like you're having so much fun,' or, ‘I've never seen anything like that,’" O'Shea said. "I always like to joke that we're a voltage-enhanced Lawrence Welk. It's all smiles, there's a lot of dancing, and there's a lot of volume. We will really fill up the sound of that church."At $20 each, tickets for Hurricane's Stratford show can be purchased at www.msthofficial.com/, but act fast as the show is already 80 per cent sold out.As for "Ride The Bullet," the album will technically drop on April 12, but O'Shea said the band will be selling advance copies at each of its live shows - a special bonus for fans. Produced by the band's own record label, Vegas Funeral Records, "Ride The Bullet" includes songs written by band members whose writing talents haven't been featured on either of their previous records."Everything on this album is...

Gregory Shaubel, 45, died suddenly on Friday.
Shaubel taught at the Ridge Road school for 15 years. He taught various subjects including English, geography and history.
Principal Fred Louws said Shaubel was well-loved by students and staff.
“He was one of our most enthusiastic school supporters and really embodied the Blue Devil spirit here at RCBHS,” he said.
“Whatever the event was, students could always count on (him) being involved with his unique brand of enthusiasm.”
On his school webpage, Shaubel wrote, “If you take a class with me, I would like to think that I not only teach you the subject material itself, but I will also help you mature as a person and prepare you for the next stages of your life.
“I believe that any student, if motivated properly, can rise to the challenge and be successful.”
Shaubel coached various sports teams at the school including girls volleyball as well as boys baseball...
Bronislawa BlaszczukWednesday, November 30, 2016
Egypt, and spending 6 years in Northern Rhodesia, Africa, she immigrated to Canada through Ellis Island, New York. She was welcomed to Canada by her brother, John Konop and his family, who lived in Ridgeway at the time. Bernice was always extremely devoted to her family. She treasured her grandchildren, inspired them to follow their dreams, and fostered a deep appreciation of family values. She played an integral role in providing them with a wonderful childhood, filled with incredible memories, as well as a strong appreciation of their Polish heritage, complete with the holiday traditions, language and delicious food. Bernice had a particularly special connection with her great-grandson, Quentin, who adored his “Babci”, and they appeared to be able to communicate even without words. Bernice was an active member of the Canadian Polish Society, and a devoted parishioner at Sts. Peter and Paul Church, where she also belonged to the Rosary Society. She was a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion Ladies Auxiliary for many years as well. The family wishes to thank the compassionate and caring personal support workers, nurses and staff of ILTC, and especially Marlene and Emily, who always went above and beyond in tending to Bernice. Our family will be forever grateful. Family and friends will be received at J.J. Patterson & Sons Funeral Residence, 19 Young Street, Welland on Sunday, November 27 from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm with prayer vigil at 8pm. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Monday, November 28 at 10 am at Sts. Peter and Paul Church, 300 Chaffey St, Welland, followed by Rite of Committal at Pleasantview Mausoleum. If desired, donations may be made in Bernice’s memory to the McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation or Sts. Peter and Paul Church Building Fund. Bernice’s beautiful life will be forever cherished in the hearts of her family, and her kind, gentle, loving spirit will always remain in the lives of all who knew her.

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. (...
