Star vet balanced tech, people skills
Heart attack strikes long-time employee at age of 69
Helped evolution from bulky computers to programming
By Patrick EVANS, Staff Reporter
Innovative, witty, full of love. It doesn't matter whom you ask, everyone describes Glenn EVERINGHAM the same way.
He thrived in an atmosphere of change. His legacy as a 30-year Toronto Star veteran was in bringing the circulation department up to speed in the age of technology, automating systems that hadn't changed in decades.
EVERINGHAM died of a heart attack December 14 at age 69 after receiving a clean bill of health from his doctor a few days before.
Born in Toronto on August 4, 1936, EVERINGHAM attended Givens Public School and Central Technical School. He kicked off his career at the Star in the payroll department in the mid-1950s. Those were low-tech days, when the office was full of cash and guarded by a man with a gun.
But when the first computers arrived at the Star -- lumbering giants that filled rooms -- he was fascinated by the possibilities they offered. He mastered the new technologies and moved on to a job in the data processing department as an information technology worker. But EVERINGHAM wanted to do more.
"He worked hard days and weekends at the Star, and he was working nights becoming a certified general accountant," said his second son, Adam, 43. In those years of working while going to school, EVERINGHAM's days were long. He would often sleep at the Star.
But the work paid off. He moved into the circulation department in the mid-to-late '70s and as controller in the department he revolutionized it with new technologies, said his oldest son, Mark, 47. EVERINGHAM brought in the Star's first subscriber database. He also brought in a computer program in the mid '80s that could tally how many papers had been sold. Prior to that it was all done with pen and paper, based on information the paper's truck drivers brought back at the end of their day.
Former colleague in circulation Martin THALL said small luxuries newspaper subscribers take for granted -- calling to suspend subscription when going on holiday -- were all new in EVERINGHAM's time. The technology he spearheaded made these things possible.
When he retired from the Star in the mid '80s, EVERINGHAM kept active as a computer programmer. In the months before his death he was still busy writing programs for the payroll department in Adam's business.
Another former colleague in circulation, Dave STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, recalled EVERINGHAM. " The man would sit there almost in silence at a meeting. You'd swear he'd fallen asleep, and then he'd suddenly come out with a profound statement that would send the meeting in a completely different direction."
But for all the technological savvy, co-workers and family remember him most for his humour and heart.
"He taught me the importance of respecting the people who work with you. That was more important than browbeating them," STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said.
Adam recalled a family friend with no relatives and no money who developed Alzheimer's disease. "My dad took care of him," Adam said. EVERINGHAM paid for the man to be in a home until he died almost five years later.
There was a lot of love in EVERINGHAM's life.
He met his wife, Tracy, in the mid '50s when, as a favour for a friend, he picked up Tracy and her mother in his car when they arrived in Canada from England. EVERINGHAM and Tracy said they fell in love at first sight and their relationship deepened throughout a 48-year marriage. "My mom used to sit with my dad every morning and have a tea before he went to work," Adam said.
Besides his wife and sons Mark and Adam, EVERINGHAM's leaves daughter Alison, 35, and five grandchildren.
The family shared memories of EVERINGHAM at a small service Tuesday.

REID, John
God saw you were getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you
And whispered, "Come to Me."
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands now rest.

He only takes the best."

Amon BECKLES, 18: Loved to the end
Funerals are for the living and Amon BECKLES is no longer among the quick.
Couldn't hear the singing of Friends, the sobbing of family -- Amon! Amon! -- the cooing of a beautiful daughter, contented baby sounds that turned into occasional cranky crying over the course of a two-hour service.
Moesha is 18 months old. Her father was 18 years old.
She wore her hair in cute pink barrettes and was passed lovingly from lap to lap in the first pew.
He wore a dark suit and was laid out in an open casket at the front of the church.
Mourners converged there to keen and embrace before the lid was closed and the service began. The grieving mother collapses but strong arms lift her up; almost carry the broken woman to her seat.
A few teenage girls wear T-shirts depicting the deceased -- tall, lanky, handsome -- and below the picture, a legend, his epitaph: "A Friend Till The End."
And this is the end: A dead teenager, an early grave, one more slain black Toronto youth.
A week and a day ago, it was BECKLES who came to mourn a murdered friend -- not at this church, but at another quite like it, where swaying arms are held high during the singing of hymns and pastors deliver righteous sermons in fervid tones, peppered with interjections from the faithful of Yeah! and Amen!
They take their Bible seriously at the Abundant Life Assembly. They take their God seriously, and joyfully as well, but too often, this past year, with sorrow for their lost sons.
Seven times, said one pastor, has he attended at the funeral of a young man felled by bullets.
Four times, said the local member of provincial parliament, has he done the same.
One hundred and twenty gunshot victims over the past five years in this city, said another reverend.
The community, this community in particular, is being torn asunder by violence, and nobody knows that so well as the other mothers who came to church yesterday, themselves having buried sons. It is a heartbroken constituency that Nadia BECKLES now joins.
They believe that prayers can heal, that a strong faith can turn youths away from the intoxication of firearms and the gangbanging culture. But their church and their families are up against a formidable foe -- the alliance of the street with its macho strut, its drugs and dealing, the guns easily obtained and so frequently fired.
Just eight days ago, against the urgings of his mother and grandparents, BECKLES went to pay his respects at the West Toronto Seventh Day Adventist Church, there to see off his closest friend, Jamal HEMMINGS, Toronto's 66th homicide this year, the 46th shooting death. Outside the front door of that church -- reportedly because he knew too much, he had been with HEMMINGS when the latter was slain -- BECKLES became the city's 69th homicide victim and 48th by a firearm.
This time, though, police were present and watchful; scout cars parked outside, officers in and out of uniform inside.
Yet the threat remains, as does the fear that more blood will be spilled in retaliatory assassinations. If not on this day, among these mourners, then some other day or night, in another parking lot or street corner or suburban strip mall.
There will be more funerals, more babies to grow up without fathers, more hand wringing by politicians, pastors and police.
"Our faith community will not allow this to continue, will not allow this to happen again," vowed Reverend Don MEREDITH, one of the Christian leaders invited to offer "words of condolence" at the service.
"This is a wake-up call for our churches that disobey the command of God to go into the world. The world around us is our community. It's not over across the sea. It's about reaching out to our young people right around every one of you. You don't know our young people because you haven't gone out from behind the pulpits! You have failed and you need to get out into the streets."
Those angry dead-end streets where guns reign and killing is a casual option.
"They brought it to the steps of the church," MEREDITH thundered. "Where will it end? In the foyer, in the congregation, at the altar?
"I say to our parents... be parents. I will not candy coat it. You need to teach your women to be ladies. You need to teach your young men to be men."
There is a lot of scattershot blame out there right now and, I suggest, the good reverend is being too harsh with parents. Young men, young women as well, are not easy to control, no more so in this religiously conservative faith community. Faith is a comfort and a source of strength but it is not the answer for many young people and parents, however strict, cannot make it so.
Amon BECKLES was clearly raised a God-fearing boy and may yet have been a God-fearing young man when he crumpled, mortally wounded, on the pavement. Active in his church's youth circle, singing with the choir.
But there were dire complications in his life of late, predicaments that -- whether he brought them on himself or not -- he never shared with police, who might have done something to save his life.
If he revealed those problems to his Friends, tear-stained young people who crowded into the church yesterday, what could they do about it? What might some of them do about it now?
BECKLES' doting grandmother, Angela BECKLES, a sturdy woman strong of character, rose from her seat to describe the boy who was the first of her grandchildren, a youngster who loved to dance, who brought smiles to Friends and family, who could charm his way into nearly everybody's heart.
"Amon gave me 18 beautiful years. I loved him. Amon was a loving, caring person.... He was raised in love, regardless of what the media is saying. He was loved."
Loved also, by the teenage girl, Camille CHAMBERS, who sang so sweetly a song she'd written for young BECKLES.
Loved also by another young woman, Stacey EVERSLEY, whose poem of remembrance, "Cuz, What Can We Say!" was printed and distributed to the congregation: "You began the day like any normal day. Who was to know it would have ended this way?"
But Amon BECKLES, with his family making arrangements to get him out of the country, did know and he was scared.
Make a joyful sound and dance if you want, Mrs. BECKLES told the young people at this funeral. Dance for Amon, because that's what he would have wanted.
"Miss him. But let him go."
No more killing, then.

ANSTEY, Susan Jane -- Dispatch:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, November 26, 2005, Page M5
Susan ANSTEY's horizons were never constrained. Raised on a horse farm in Scarborough, she followed her lifelong passion for horses to international competition, and a junior hunter and jumper championship in 1961.
After earning a B.A. in economics and political science at the University of Toronto, she joined Merrill Lynch, where she met future husband Tom ANSTEY. Her later stint with the Economic Council of Canada ended when they headed to Vancouver in 1976. Two years later, now a single parent, she returned to Toronto with her horse and two-year-old daughter Jennifer.
With her sister, Alice FERRIER, she created the Horse Publications Group and in 1994 was elected president of the International Alliance of Equestrian Journalists. But it was her involvement with the Canadian Equestrian Team that linked her to Michael VAN EVERY, her life partner since 1981. They shared a love of riding, bred and raced thoroughbreds and established a horse farm in Nobleton, Ontario.
Ms. ANSTEY showed her bedrock of courage when she was diagnosed with cancer in April. She died on November 9 at the age of 59.
"I loved her tenacity," Mr. VAN EVERY says. "She made a decision, never regretted it and got things done."

Susan Jane ANSTEY, 59: A passion for horse riding
Passion for horses led to successful magazine career
Had wanted to create museum for equestrian sports
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
To Susan Jane ANSTEY, it was simple and always so: A horse is the most glorious, awe-inspiring, wondrous creature on the planet.
And so she built her whole life around them.
She grew up with them, rode them, jumped them, hunted on them, showed them, judged them, bought them, broke them. Later, as publisher of three important horse publications, she documented their wins, losses, owners, organizations, riders and regimens.
But most of all, she believed in them.
For ANSTEY, who died of cancer on November 9 at the age of 59, there was no such thing as a casual Sunday ride along the 16th Concession Rd. outside her home, Wyndstone Farm, in King Township.
Michael VAN EVERY, her partner for 24 years, described it this way: "She was a nut about the turnout of a horse. She couldn't ride down our road without spending a half-hour cleaning the tack, brushing the horse, the mane, flipping it over to the right-hand side. Her horses were always impeccable."
Added her daughter, Jennifer ANSTEY: "It was an issue of respect with my mother."
And love.
Susan Jane SCOTT grew up on the original Wyndstone Farm, a horse and cattle farm that was expropriated for what was going to be the Pickering Airport and ended up functioning as the holding barn for new animals of the Toronto Zoo. Her father, Lewis SCOTT, was a hard-driving developer who served as Master of the Hunt of the Toronto and North York Hunt, a fox-hunting club, for many years.
Everyone in her family rode -- it would have been unnatural not to -- but ANSTEY rode with passion, precision and panache. It helped that she was tall and blonde, but most people always said that no one looked better on a horse.
"She was so graceful on a horse," said Judy JONES, a friend since the two met in 1957 at the Eglinton Pony Club junior show. "She was poetry in motion and always upright, as if she had followed our mothers' advice to walk with your shoulders back, as if you had a book on your head."
After marrying broker Tom ANSTEY and moving to Vancouver, ANSTEY used to tell JONES she was fed up with the rain and having to ride indoors. When the marriage ended, she moved back east with her horse and Jennifer, then 2.
With her sister, she purchased The Corinthian magazine, an ailing publication at the time but still the newsprint Bible for most of Canada's horsey set. ANSTEY renamed it Horse Sport and took it to a slick, full-colour glossy monthly that rapidly took up pride of place on many coffee tables. Its circulation is 20,000, its influence much more.
Later, ANSTEY started Canadian Thoroughbred (circulation 15,000) and Horse Canada, a horse magazine for families and a huge hit with a circulation base of 35,000.
"Susan Jane saw what was and what was not working well, and through the magazines she used to lay out the issues for the equestrian community," said Jeff CHISHOLM, a horse owner, former chair of the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair and member of Jump Canada. "Her articles were always well-researched and she was an excellent writer. She could crystallize issues."
When ANSTEY was elected president of the International Alliance of Equestrian Journalists in 1994, she became the first woman and the first non-European to obtain that position, which she held for 11 years.
For eight years, she also chaired the media advisory committee of the Fédération Equestre Internationale, the international ruling body for equestrian sport. She belonged to its Nations Cup committee, despite representing a country that failed to qualify to field a show-jumping team at the last Olympics. (Canada was able to send only one show-jumping rider, Ian Millar of Millarbrook Farms.)
ANSTEY chaired a task force that led to the reorganization of the Canadian Equestrian Federation into Equine Canada, an organization that functions as a governing body and from which Jump Canada which sets standards around the jumping competitions -- was created.
"Jump Canada has done an awful lot. We have more good horse-and-rider combinations now in this country than we have had in the last 20 years," CHISHOLM said.
Bold, efficient ("there will be no lollygagging," she used to say to her daughter) and indefatigable, ANSTEY managed to also fill her days with riding, no matter where she was. She would often drive from Heathrow Airport near London to the English countryside for a fox hunt on a rented horse, en route to or from a meeting in Paris or elsewhere in Europe.
She loved the hunt, riding over fields and through forests as morning was breaking. She told JONES it was good for the horse's soul to get out and streak through the cool, crisp air. For years, she would join the Toronto hunt, twice a week every spring and fall, then go home, shower and arrive at her Aurora office by 9: 30 a.m. She stopped only when the hunt started later in the mornings.
When Jennifer was in Grade 9 at Toronto's Havergal College, her mother's alma mater, ANSTEY bought her a horse. "It was really nice, the best I've ever had," she recalled.
ANSTEY would leave work in Aurora, drive to Havergal, pick up her daughter and drive her to the barn in Schomberg to ride, before heading back to Aurora to work for a few hours before repeating the circuit to pick up and return Jennifer to school.
"She did it twice a week for two years," Jennifer said.
There are currently a dozen horses (plus a pony and a donkey) at Wyndstone Farm, many of them horses ANSTEY bought off the track to develop into show jumpers or field hunters.
"She always had young horses, she loved to watch them develop," Jennifer said. "Fun was something you had to work on, a life you are shaping and moulding."
After her mother gave her an ultimatum -- either she could work with her or the magazines would be sold -- Jennifer went to work for ANSTEY six years ago, gradually assuming greater responsibility at Canadian Horse Publications Inc., so much so that ANSTEY was planning to retire next year.
At the time of her death, she wanted to create a museum for equestrian sports and was considering writing a book on its history. She had been diagnosed with cancer only in April.
By the summer, she was failing and gave Jennifer her horse to ride in competition. VAN EVERY, ANSTEY's partner, had bought Baroness, a huge horse, the summer before and ANSTEY had competed on Baroness in the 1.2-metre circuit in the senior division in Collingwood then.
"Typical Mom," Jennifer said. "Riding a 7-year-old fairly green horse against experienced, schooled horses."
This past summer, Jennifer rode Baroness in eight horse shows, in the 1.3-metre junior amateur jumpers A or highest level circuit. "I had never jumped this big before," she said. "It was a big move for both of us."
The organizers of the Palgrave, Ontario, competition allowed VAN EVERY to drive his car to the north end of the grandstand, usually off-limits to spectators, so ANSTEY could watch her daughter compete.
Jennifer, in part, was competing so her mother could watch.
"She loved watching. We'd talk afterward about why I had a rail. She loved the training process and the horse's moods. She just really understood them."

William FARLINGER, Accountant and Chief Executive Officer: (1929-2005)
'Slow-moving guy with a razor-sharp mind' went from success as head of Ernst and Young to disappointment as chair of Ontario Hydro, writes Sandra MARTIN. His stumble came with a failed attempt at privatization
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, December 3, 2005, Page S11
A chartered accountant who headed up Clarkson Gordon (now Ernst & Young,) William "Bill" FARLINGER retired in 1993 after a stellar career in business. Dynamic and energetic, he combined his business acumen, his private-sector connections and his political philosophy in the campaign to elect Mike Harris premier of Ontario in 1995.
"For many, Bill FARLINGER will be remembered as a decisive and intelligent leader. For me, he was also a kind and gentle friend," the former premier said this week.
Mr. HARRIS named Mr. FARLINGER chair of Ontario Hydro in 1995, with the mandate to privatize the public utility that had been one of the economic engines of the province's prosperity. The initiative went horribly wrong, with Mr. FARLINGER castigated in the press for lavish spending. He remained chair of the board and its successor, Ontario Power Generation, until 2003 when the Harris government was defeated by Dalton McGuinty's Liberals.
The unresolved question is why Mr. FARLINGER took on such an onerous and risky challenge, when he could have been golfing, fishing or relaxing with his grandchildren and his second wife, Esther. He knew the workings of the company, or must have thought he did, because Clarkson Gordon had been Ontario Hydro's accountants for decades. And yet in August of 1997, two years after he became chair of the board, he released a scathing internal report on mismanagement at the public utility and announced that seven of its 19 atomic reactors had to be shut down. "The nuclear unit was operated over all those early years as some sort of special nuclear cult," he said at a press conference.
"My father had a dream of privatizing electricity," said his daughter Pamela EARLE. "He didn't believe any government could ever run it very well and he believed electricity would be cheaper and the environment would be [cleaner] if it were privatized, and that is what he tried to do."
In retrospect, says former premier Ernie EVES, privatizing Ontario Hydro was doomed because "we didn't have enough competition out there to privatize it." In his opinion, you need a fairly level playing field with some decent competitors. "It is not going to work if you have an overwhelming player who controls 85 or 90 per cent of the power generation, and the other players are all scrambling around fighting over the other 10 to 15 per cent," he says. "It may come to pass but, in hindsight, I just don't think we were ready to make it work."
Mr. FARLINGER's old friend and mentor, accountant and public-policy writer Jack BIDDELL has a harsher explanation. "Here is a man whose father was very wealthy, who left Bill with a lot of money. Bill had a tremendous income as Chief Executive Officer of Clarkson Gordon, but he was obsessed with seeing how much money he could make. He was a great family man and I loved him, but that was his main concern. He never did anything unethical, but the urge to make money and to demonstrate how smart he was, was there. I never understood it." The two men broke over Ontario Hydro and Mr. BIDDELL's greatest regret is that they never had time to repair the rift in their nearly 50-year Friendship.
William Bill Alexander FARLINGER was born just after the stock market crash that heralded the Depression, the eldest of two children of real estate salesman Alexander FARLINGER and his wife Allie (PURVES.) Although times were tough when Bill was a child, his father became a successful real-estate developer in the 1950s and 1960s, building Bayview Village and some of the first townhouses at the corner of York Mills and Bayview in Toronto.
Mr. FARLINGER met his first wife, Shirley (TABB) FARLINGER, in Grade 8 in the local elementary school they both attended in North Toronto. They started going steady when they were 12, a romance that lasted all through high school at Lawrence Park Collegiate Institute and the University of Toronto. Tall, lithe and graceful, Mr. FARLINGER was a hurdler and a pole vaulter, and was elected to the sports hall of fame at the University of Toronto in 1991 and awarded an honorary degree the following year.
The FARLINGERs married in 1951, right after graduation, when both were 21.
With a degree in commerce and finance, Mr. FARLINGER joined Clarkson Gordon the same year. "He showed his mettle early on," said Ken LEMON, a former executive, who had joined the firm in 1936. "He had a strong personality and he was very smart."
He worked in the auditing business while he qualified as a chartered accountant and then moved into the insolvency and bankruptcy business, working mainly under Jack BIDDELL. "I recognized his talents and I had a little bit to do with moving him around the country to our various offices [in Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto]," said Mr. BIDDELL. "He was very bright, a good accountant, very articulate, very pleasant and dealt with people well."
One of the big cases Mr. FARLINGER worked on was the liquidation of Investors Overseas Services, then the biggest pension fund in the world. Investors Overseas Services had its headquarters in Geneva, but it had been incorporated in New Brunswick. That was why Clarkson Gordon was involved in securing and resolving a pension fund that involved governments in several countries.
Mr. LEMON was instrumental in bringing Mr. FARLINGER onto the executive committee of Clarkson Gorden. The firm had had a long association with the American firm Arthur Young, representing them in Canada and being represented by them around the world. After A.C. Ernst and Arthur Young merged in the U.S. in 1989, there was a question about who their Canadian affiliate would be.
By then senior partner and Chief Executive Officer of the firm, Mr. FARLINGER made certain it was Clarkson Gordon. The cost was changing the firm's name to Ernst and Young. "From our standpoint, it was a very important step in the history of the firm," said Mr. LEMON. "We would have lost our international connection and our ability to work around the world."
Mr. BIDDELL, who had not welcomed the change, eventually saw that it was a good and necessary move. "When he told me the details, I reached over and shook his hand."
Mr. FARLINGER and his wife Shirley had five children; Brian, who died of H.I.V./A.I.D.S. in 1995, Pamela, Craig, Leonard and David. A keen outdoorsman, Mr. FARLINGER loved fishing, golfing and skiing. He taught his kids to ski and insisted they all learn French when he was transferred to Montreal in 1967. The family spent winter holidays on ski slopes around the world and summers portaging and camping at a rustic fishing camp in Caughnawana, Quebec, due east of North Bay, Ontario, that he had bought in 1975 with Mr. LEMON.
Mr. FARLINGER had a rare combination of strength and gentleness that made him very attractive to be around, said his daughter. "He really listened and was sympathetic to many points of view and I think that is what made him so dynamic in the boardroom and in our family." Sunday dinners were lively and opinionated, she said.
After 36 years of marriage, the FARLINGERs separated in 1987 because they had "evolved" in different ways, according to his first wife, who has since remarried. She supported the Green Party and the New Democratic Party and he was an arch Conservative.
"My mother had been a housewife for 25 years, raising the kids. She had been a very loving mother, but as she saw dad's career develop she wanted to make her mark, too, and Dad really wanted a wife who would be by his side and do charities and galas."
He married his second wife, Esther, a golfer, fundraiser and interior designer, in 1988.
After he retired from Ernst and Young, Mr. FARLINGER formed his own management consulting firm, "but he was itching to do something bigger," said his nephew Bill KING, a former journalist for the North Bay Nugget, who was working in Mike HARRIS's constituency office in the late 1980s. That something bigger turned out to be electing Mr. HARRIS as leader of the party and then premier of the province. Mr. FARLINGER raised money, gave Mr. HARRIS legitimacy with his business connections on Bay Street, and helped strategize the Common Sense Revolution.
"He really impressed me," said Mr. EVES, another key player in Mr. HARRIS's leadership bid. "He was a slow-moving guy with a razor-sharp mind. He could take any problem you had and make it into a succinct matter instead of going on and on about a pile of irrelevant stuff."
Mr. EVES also knew Mr. FARLINGER on the golf course, a place where you can learn a lot about a man's character. "There are a lot of people who will cheat here and there or move the ball, but not Bill. He always played strictly by the rules. He was a very honest and decent guy."
William Alexander FARLINGER was born in Toronto on November 21, 1929. He died on November 28, 2005, after suffering a massive stroke 10 days earlier. He was 76. He is survived by his wife Esther, four children, one stepson and 14 grandchildren.
