Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Clark. "He was a man who epitomized traits we don't often hear used anymore: class, grace, and principled." Nuraney worked in the insurance industry in Kenya, London and Zurich before moving to Zaire in the late 1960s where he recorded, produced and distributed Zairian music. He immigrated to Canada in 1974, working in the insurance, real estate and restaurant businesses, owning several A&W franchises in Metro Vancouver. Nuraney spoke six languages: English, French, Swahili, Lingala, Hindi and Gujarati. He and his wife had three children. Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Golf Notebook: Spieth pares back schedule - West Central Tribune

Wednesday, December 14, 2016

Coe-Jones' name should do so to the Amandalee Fund for sarcoma research at the Moffitt Cancer Center Foundation in Tampa, Fla. --The Zurich Classic of New Orleans reportedly will switch to a two-man team format in 2017, becoming the PGA Tour's first team event in nearly 40 years, according to Golf Channel. Golf Channel reporter George Savaricas said the event will feature 80 two-man teams. Both members of the winning team will receive the two-year Tour exemption that typically accompanies a victory in an official event, and each winning player will receive 400 FedExCup points. A regular tournament offers 500 points to the winner and 300 to the runner-up. Both winning team members will earn spots in the Tournament of Champions and PGA Championship but will not receive Masters invitations, according to the report. The top 80 qualifiers will be allowed to choose their teammate, with the caveat that their partner must have at least some PGA Tour status for the 2016-17 season. If not, the selection will require the use of a sponsor invite. Play will include one round of foursomes (alternate shot) and one round of fourballs (best ball) before the 36-hole cut to the low 35 teams. The PGA Tour declined to comment on the report. The most recent official team event on PGA Tour was the Walt Disney World National Team Championship, which featured a two-man format from 1974-81. --Phil Mickelson underwent surgery on Oct. 19 to repair a sports hernia, according to several media sources. The 46-year-old veteran had the operation three days after he tied for eighth in the season-opening Safeway Open at Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, Calif., and reportedly things went well. "It was a walnut-sized hernia behind my belly button," Mickelson told Tim Rosaforte of Golf Digest. "It was no big deal, nor did it affect me when I played. I pushed it back in every minute or so. "I couldn't work out as intensely as I wanted to, that's all. It didn't hurt or affect me. It was just annoying." According to OrthoInfo.org, a sports hernia is a tear or strain to the soft tissue in the groin or lower abdomen. It happens most often in sports that require sudden changes of direction or twisting. Recovery time following sports hernia surgery varies, but typically it takes four to six weeks. That means Mickelson should be ready for what is expected to be his first start of 2017, the CareerBuilder Challenge in January at La Quinta, Calif. Mickelson was named as ambassa...

'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto Star

Thursday, 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...

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Humboldt later this week. https://t.co/DvpAsm2Ybw#HumboldtStrong#PutYourStickOut#XBRpic.twitter.com/h2EyHhQjrj — 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 Star

Thursday, 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...
