Chatham-Kent police cleared in fatal crash
Free Press Staff and Canadian Press
Ontario's police watchdog agency has cleared Chatham-Kent police of any criminal wrongdoing after a police chase ended in a fatal crash.
Vince HOPKINS, 26, of Moraviantown was killed and the driver of the fleeing car and another passenger in it were seriously injured.
The car slammed into a tree at Indian Creek Road East and Creek Road in Chatham after being pursued by a police cruiser April The Special Investigations Unit found the officer had called off the two-minute chase before the crash because of concern over high speeds.
The Special Investigations Unit said the car flipped, slid across the road and into the tree about 20 seconds after the officer slowed down.
The Special Investigations Unit is a civilian agency that investigates incidents involving police and civilians that result in serious injury or death.
Chatham-Kent police began chasing the car when it went through police radar at high speed just before 1 p.m. on April 27.

HOPKINS, Lucy -- Dispatch
By Oliver MOORE, Saturday, November 5, 2005, Page M4
Lucy HOPKINS was such an eager saleswoman she once knocked unwittingly on the door of a hydro substation disguised as a home.
Ms. HOPKINS came to Canada from Ukraine after the Second World War, after spending time in a labour camp in Germany. She fled to this new life with her mother, both of them believing that her father was dead. They learned only decades later that he had actually survived the war.
In Toronto, Ms. HOPKINS found work as a secretary in a legal firm and met her future husband. They married and she switched to sales.
After doing some work with Avon, Ms. HOPKINS tried her hand at real estate. She was a quick success. In 1969, she was named the top real-estate agent in North America. The feat made the pages of the now-defunct Toronto Telegram, which noted that "the best salesman is a lady called Lucy."
Although her career was a string of successes -- and her 1969 award has been credited with encouraging women to enter the real-estate business -- her only daughter is quick to dispel the notion that the sales sphere was in her blood.
"She was not someone who was very lucky at real estate -- she worked hard at it," Barbara PAYNE said. "I remember one Christmas when she was selling a house to Jewish people. It didn't matter to them that it was Christmas, so off she went."
Ms. HOPKINS eased out of real estate as she aged, putting more time into Probus, an organization for retired business people. She died of cancer on October 5 and a memorial service was held last Saturday. She was predeceased by her husband and leaves her daughter.

Lucy HOPKINS, Real Estate Agent (1926-2005)
In 1969, Toronto's first millionaire female realtor was declared champion of all agents in North America regardless of gender
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, December 24, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- In 1970, a headline in the Toronto Telegram proclaimed "The best salesman is a lady called Lucy." That was Lucy HOPKINS.
Mrs. HOPKINS was a pioneering real estate agent, whose aggressive sales impetus spawned an entry of females into the industry en masse as the 1970s dawned. In an industry where most real estate agents were, and are, still male, Mrs. HOPKINS was a star, earning the distinction of commanding more than $60,000 in commission in 1969, exceptional coin for that era. That made her the champion of real estate agents in North America, including men and women.
Mrs. HOPKINS sold 80 homes in 1969, some for as much as $2.5-million, thus vaulting her into the Millionaires Club and into the headlines with the result that many women flocked to real estate. Nowadays, the Toronto Real Estate Board says about 40 per cent of agents under its jurisdiction are women.
"We're always the last people to arrive at parties or things like that because just before we leave I always get an offer I have to check," Mrs. HOPKINS told the Telegram, explaining her success.
"She's sold just about every type of house there is -- except hydro substations," her husband Richard said in the same story.
The joke about hydro substations was in reference to the time she was making cold calls as an Avon salesperson. One day, she stumbled upon a hydro substation that was disguised to look like a residential property. No one answered the door. She peered through the window and discovered the occupants of the property were transformers, not human beings.
"They make the substations look like houses in the residential areas with venetian blinds, even," Mrs. HOPKINS said, in explaining the embarrassment. "It's hard to recognize them."
That occurred when the Avon lady slung the bag on her shoulder, her daughter Barbara PAYNE said. "Today, they do a lot of their selling by phone or on the Internet."
Lucy HOPKINS was born in Ukraine and spent time in a labour camp in Germany during the Second World War. Later, to escape hardships, her mother brought her to Canada without knowing if her husband survived the war. Eventually, they found out he was alive but never saw him again.
In Toronto, Mrs. HOPKINS first worked as a legal secretary for $60 a week. In no time, she was selling cosmetics for Avon, winning many awards in the process, one of which was presented to her at a U.S. convention by actress Joan Crawford. Two years later, her shoulders complaining from all the constant lugging of the product bag, she decided to switch to real estate. She reckoned all an agent needed was a light bag or purse.
"Although she won many awards with Avon, this did not challenge her ability to develop new ideas," said her friend Al CAMERON.
She remained in real estate for about 20 years, routinely working 10 hours a day, and formed her own company in Toronto's Markland Wood district, which was her own West End neighbourhood. "I doubt if there is a house in Markland Wood that she didn't sell at some time or other," Mr. CAMERON said.
In the process she became a millionaire.
"My mother worked very hard at real estate," her daughter said. "Even if it was Christmas, she was off checking out property with clients."
In 1985, Mrs. HOPKINS retired for health reasons and instead devoted much of her time to Probus activity groups that are aimed at retired business people.
"Lucy was a kind person who liked to work in the background and didn't expect credit for her accomplishments," Mr. CAMERON said. "She was intelligent, classy and charming. She was a founding member of Probus Etobicoke and was instrumental in finding a core of people to start the club by door-to-door canvassing for members and by advertising in local newspapers."
Because of her, Probus membership leapt by 200 per cent within three years.
Lucy HOPKINS was born January 11, 1926, in Ukraine. She died of cancer on October 5, 2005, in Toronto. She is survived by her daughter Barbara. She was predeceased by her husband Richard.
