Norman Chad: In the NBA playoffs, please don't touch the merchandise - The Spokesman-ReviewThursday, April 12, 2018
I cannot root for Philadelphia, because this team has been fraudulently constructed.If tanking is the future of Sports Nation, Couch Slouch will be on the next Greyhound to Gatineau. Besides, I love a good poutine.I cannot Trust The Process. I mistrust The Process. I bemoan The Process. I reject The Process. I condemn The Process. I spit on The Process.The Process is more insidious than Russian meddling. Because this is a threat from within, not from a hostile foreign power. This is intentional, hidden-in-broad-daylight rigging of the results.This is so un-American, I’m surprised it hasn’t cracked the Liberty Bell again.Good luck knocking LeBron James out of the East playoffs. He’s made the NBA Finals seven straight seasons. He’s more dependable than chicken soup. He’s indestructible; if he lay down on train tracks, no train would ever harm him.In a fabulous 15-year career, could he really be having his finest season? It’s the closest he’s ever come to averaging a triple-double – 27.7 points, 9.2 assists, 8.7 rebounds.At this point, only an apocalyptically moronic imbecile – or Skip Bayless – could possibly be critical of LeBron’s NBA legacy.Ask The SlouchQ.

MacKimmie Funeral Home closing after 157 years in business - The Review NewspaperThursday, December 14, 2017
MacKimmie Funeral Home has been serving a predominantly English-speaking clientele in the Lachute region, extending west through the Arundel, Weir, Harrington region to clients as far away as Gatineau and Hull.Richard and Bonnie’s childhood included being around the funeral home. Richard remembers going on the road at eight or nine years of age to help set up graves. At the age of 10, 11, or 12, he remembers being present for removals from homes.Although young, he says that this was just part of life in his family.“People died at home and we would go to a home when someone had passed away. Times have changed and these days, more often than not when someone dies at home, an ambulance is called in order to transport the person to a hospital first,” Richard said.“I would be at the funeral home and the embalmer would arrive and say hello and I would say hello and that was just the way things were for us,” Richard said.Looking ahead, Richard says that the family will retain the headstone business from an office at the rear of the funeral home building.Pre-arranged funerals will be transferred to Salon Funéraire Roland Menard. Richard says that business, too, is a family-owned business and that he has known Roland Menard since they attended school together. Roland Menard grew up in the trade also and came into the business in the same manner as Richard did.MacKimmie Funeral Home is located at 660 rue Principale in Lachute. While the telephone number and business entity will exist for some time, the business will close at the end of 2017.Louise SprouleLouise Sproule has been the publisher of The Review since 1992.

Cornwall and Area Death Notices - Cornwall Seaway NewsThursday, April 12, 2018
Faith Marie Mill, in December 1954. Returning to Canada from Europe in 1954 he served in the Overseas Ferry Unit, flying small single-engined fighters across the Atlantic to Europe from Longeueil, Quebec. Postings through the late 50s and early 60s saw him training the RCAF’s (and NATO’s) growing cadre of pilots in Portage la Prairie, Saskatoon and Gimli. His experience with accident investigation within the Flight Safety Directorate in Ottawa from 1965-68 helped initiate safety procedures that dramatically brought down the accident rate amongst new jet pilots. After a year’s study in Staff College in Kingston and operational training in Chatham and Cold Lake, Bruce Burgess returned to Europe, commanding 441 and 439 reconnaissance squadrons flying CF-104s in Germany and studying with the Royal Air Force Warfare College at RAF Manby in 1972. Returning to the Air Requirements Directorate in Ottawa from 1973-77, he helped shepherd the acquisition of the next generation of CF-18 (hornet) fighter aircraft. Highlights of his later career include Base Commander at CFB Comox (1977-80), Defense Attache in London (1980-82), Chief of Staff Air Force Operations, Winnipeg (1982-84) and Deputy Chief of Staff of Operations at Aerospace Defense Command in Colorado Springs (1984-87). He was awarded the Order of Military Merit in 1984, supplementing his earlier Special Service Medal (NATO-OTAN) and Canadian Decoration. He retired with Faith to Lancaster, Ontario in 1987. Bruce Burgess was a citizen airman who lived life with integrity, humility, humour, a strong sense of responsibility and a profound commitment to Canada. The warmth of his personality, his dedication to duty, his courage and his charm enriched us all. The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday April 7, 2018 at St. Andrew’s and Knox Church, 21102 Concession Road 2, S. Glengarry, Bainsville, Ontario. The family will receive visitors on Friday April 6, 2018 from 2 to 4 p.m., and from 7 to 9 p.m., at the Munro & Morris Funeral Home, 46 Oak Street, Lancaster (613-347-3629). www.munromorris.comDORAIS, Monique (Dufort) - At the Glengarry Memorial Hospital, Alexandria on Monday, March 26, 2018.

Aubrey de Grey thinks the first humans who will live to 1,000 already walk among us. But is postponing death a good thing?
Tech folks are a little antsy about the whole death thing. They're putting money behind DNA 'hacking,' organ printing and tiny robots that might kill what ails you
Robots and asteroids are likely threats, but we'll probably be wiped out by good, old-fashioned disease
Amortized over time, it's a small price to pay for the hoped for results — the reversal of aging. And transfusions are already bestowing Methuselah-like effects L...
