MILLARD, Carl (November 28, 1913-November 21, 2006)
Carl MILLARD was born on a snowy November 28 day in 1913 on his father's 100 acre farm at Folden's Corners, near Ingersoll, Ontario. It was only 10 years after the Wright Brothers first flight, and their invention of the 'flying machine' and Carl's path through life were going to intersect. But before that happening, Carl would be going to the one-room school house, where Grade 1 was in the back row and Grade 8 was in the front row, and it was here in Grade 8 that the school marm took a disliking to young Carl. Another boy, the school prankster, had loaded all the students' bench seats with cap pistol sparkers so that when the seats were slammed down to start the morning class there erupted a halluva lot of noise and smoke. Carl's delight at the incident annoyed the school marm, and she tried to threaten Carl into revealing the culprit, but she ran up against a boy with principles whose attitude was 'If you want to catch somebody, do it yourself, you're not going to use me', and so it came to be that young Carl was deliberately failed. He would have to repeat Grade 8. Carl's mother, Vera (SHUTTLEWORTH, 1890-1960,) was a no-nonsense hard working farm wife who went into battle with the school board, who eventually and reluctantly would allow Carl the opportunity to write the Grade 8 exams again. But there was a hitch, he would have to wait until next year. He spent the next year working on the farm, and when he did pass the exams the following year he had already been working full-time and given up the plans to study mechanical engineering. Carl's father, Earl (1888-1978), bought a used Model T in 1925, and it wasn't long before Carl was driving the milk cans to the cheese factory, even though he was only 12 years old, and changing engine main bearings before he was not yet a teenager. His natural talents included learning the accordion, completely self-taught, on an old instrument picked up at an auction. He became a master player, all by ear. He could not read one note of sheet music. Ploughing on the farm was done with a one-furrow handplough pulled by a team of two horses, and it was on such a day when Carl was 15 years old, a 'big, red monoplane' thundered directly overhead flying low under a misty cloud cover, eastbound, in a London, Ontario to London, England record attempt. (Unfortunately the Stinson Detroiter vanished over the Atlantic). The sight of the airplane had a lasting effect. From that moment on, the young boy dreamed of turning in the plough for the cockpit, but flying lessons were $50 an hour and the average wage was 25¢ an hour. So it was going to take a lot of determination to achieve this goal. When Carl was 17, he decided to start his own business (in the depression!) to earn enough money to finance his flying ambitions. He bought an old truck that was broken, fixed it up and got it running again. His first customer was a farmer who owned a breeding bull that needed to be transported from farm to farm during breeding season. The bull got to like riding around in the truck, his head over the cab with the wind in his face. He even learned how to lean into the corners. One day, when going down a steep hill with a sharp right turn at the bottom, Carl applied the brakes to find they had failed and his foot was on the floor. He and the farmer looked at each other with the same question in their eyes. Straight ahead into the ditch or maybe roll it on the corner? Carl took a chance and made the sharp turn. Sure enough, that bull leaned heavily into the corner and saved the day. In 1939, the fledgling TransCanada Airlines expanded operations to inaugurate a coast-to-coast route, and Carl became the 46th pilot to be hired by TransCanada Airlines. Carl retired from TransCanada Airlines in 1954 as second senior Captain in Toronto, having flown Lockheed 14, 18, Douglas DC3 and North Stars for 15,000 hours. Carl enjoyed telling the story about Mary, a newly hired stewardess who had not gotten to know many people on the airline, yet, when she took a flight to New York and back on the North Star. She served the pilots dinner on the way back. After the flight debriefing, the crew went on their own ways. Carl went home and wasn't in long when the phone rang. It was his younger brother George. Now George and Carl has started a little cab company, which later became Metro Cab, because they had a couple of cars for sale that weren't moving. 'Hey Carl, I've got a fare for you, are you free'. Carl put on his cab driver tunic and cap, and arrived at the apartment building. When he knocked on the door, he found the fare to be Mary. She was stunned to see the North Star Captain of an hour ago to actually be a cab driver. 'Are you a cab driver impersonating as an airline captain?' she asked in disbelief. 'No,' replied Carl, 'just a pilot who is now making an honest living.' Carl and Dell formed Millard Auto Aero Marine Ltd. in 1946, and over the next 15 years were Canadian distributors for Steelcraft Boats, Beech Aircraft, Fleet Aircraft and Bellanca Aircraft. The office headquarters was the little sunroom at the back of the tiny bungalow at 127 St. Clements Avenue. Of his many Friends, Carl held a special regard and respect for the aircraft design genius Giuseppe Bellanca, who created outstanding planes well ahead of the competition in terms of efficiency. In 1927 his 'Columbia' flew from New York to Germany and stayed aloft for 46 hours. The pilot was Clarence Chamberlin, who became Bellanca's chief test pilot. When Carl took on being Canadian distributor for Bellanca, he got to know these aviation celebrities as personal Friends. One day Carl dropped into the factory at Wilmington, Delaware to have lunch with Clarence. Carl's steed was a Bellanca Cruisemaster that hadn't yet sold, and one that he had installed on the side of the cowling a venturi for driving the turn and bank, which was the common modification in those days. After lunch, Carl noticed on his preflight walkaround that the venturi was missing. He asked the Bellanca foreman who was standing close by, what happened to the venturi. The foreman nodded over his shoulder to the second floor office of the hangar where Giuseppe was standing looking out. The foreman said 'The old man told me he couldn't bear to see parasite drag on his design and to move it to inside the cowling. Also it won't ice up in there'. Carl and Giuseppe nodded to each other. Such was the attention to minute detail of Bellanca. Improvement of aircraft for operation in the Canadian environment occupied Carl's mechanical creativeness. he held Supplemental Type Certificates for several inventions, which included Stinson floatplane conversion to 190 hp., Stinson metallization, Cessna 170 floatplane to 165 hp., Piper Apache to 180 hp., Stinson SR-10 cargo door installation. DC3 cabin heating system, and improved carburetor heat box design. Post-war light aircraft manufacturers produced thousands of machines for the exploding private market, and weather related accidents increased at an alarming rate. Carl believed that better qualified pilots in the private sector was the key to materially reducing the accidents, and he went on a crusade promoting Instrument Flight Rules training for the private pilot, at that time unheard of, as the Instrument Rating was then a qualification held only by airline pilots. For this work he was awarded the 1954 Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association Award for the Canadian contributing the most to general aviation. He was also a founding director of Canadian Owners and Pilots Association, an organization that has been essential to the growth of general aviation in Canada. When Carl imported into Canada the Cessna Citation executive jet, the Department of Transport sent out a flight inspector to take him on a check ride.

Jack HARRELL, Boxing Trainer And Historian: (1944-2006)
With the motto 'Refuse to Lose,' he ran Toronto's under appreciated Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame and trained aspiring boxers for 43 years
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Damon Runyon could have come up with this: A sailor who gets into the fight game, eats and breathes boxing for more than four decades, helps kids stay out of trouble, marries three times, dies relatively young, and is remembered by fellow salts and pugilists as a tough guy with a heart of gold.
That was "Florida" Jack HARRELL -- a character in a character's world. He trained boxers for 43 years and ran the unheralded Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame, housed in his eponymous gym up a gloomy flight of stairs at the corner of Yonge and Bloor streets in Toronto. Its high point came in October, 2002, when Mr. HARRELL inducted Muhammad Ali during half time at a Toronto Argonauts game.
Despite the attendance of then heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis and former titleholders Larry Holmes and Evander Holyfield -- and adoring chants of "Ali! Ali!" from the crowd -- it was an event Mr. HARRELL lamented was buried by the media. He also rued that his boxing museum never caught the public's attention, despite the effort and his own money that he'd put into it.
"Most people just walk by. They haven't realized that there are two professional sports halls of fame on Yonge Street," he said a few years ago, referring to the more famous Hockey Hall of Fame.
"It always struck me as odd, in a nice way, that here was an American guy [who was] into Canadian boxing history, who took it on himself to open a museum and the Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame," recalled George CHUVALO, the Canadian heavyweight warhorse who twice fought Mr. Ali and earned Mr. HARRELL's respect for never being knocked down through 97 pro fights.
"He loved boxing and he helped a lot of kids," said Mr. CHUVALO. "He was a good-hearted guy. A bit flamboyant, but a cool guy. A character -- a good character."
With every finger ringed and bejewelled in a way that made his hands look like they were brandishing high-end brass knuckles, coupled with a black hat and Hulk Hogan-style mustache, Mr. HARRELL was "the sort of a guy who should have gone to Hollywood," said Spider Jones, a three-time former Golden Gloves champion and Hall of Fame inductee who now co-hosts ESPN Classic's Famous Fights with Mr. CHUVALO. " Jack was wearing bling before bling was in."
He had some rough edges but Mr. HARRELL "was always looking at the bright side of things and constantly making plans for the future," remembered his friend, Robin PITCHER, a one-time referee and judge for Boxing Ontario who wandered into Mr. HARRELL's gym one day "just to check it out."
Mr. HARRELL's son, Jackson Jefferson, known as J.J., a provincial Junior A champion in 1994-'95, became Mr. PITCHER's personal trainer, "and I began to learn to box at the tender age of 58."
Mr. HARRELL was a "wicked" pool player, Mr. PITCHER recalled, and a regular at the Naval Club of Toronto, where he regaled patrons with tales of boxing and the sea -- aware, perhaps, of the parallels.
The "Florida" moniker was owed to his birthplace but also to a voice once described as thicker than a Tallahassee swamp. An only child, he grew up in north Florida and served in the U.S. Navy from 1962 until 1966, starting at the Great Lakes Training Center in Illinois and onto the communications cruiser U.S.S. Northampton and the destroyer U.S.S. Claude Jones. He served a brief tour in Vietnam, about which he spoke little.
No one seems to know why Mr. HARRELL came to Toronto in 1974, but he did it in a 1937 Chevy hotrod that he drove for years afterward. He worked for about a dozen years as a subway train driver, then opened a boxing gym on Yonge Street. About six years ago, he moved it half a block north, where it endured a fire and a perennially leaky roof.
When membership dwindled from 300 -- about half of them women to 50 or so, he struggled to keep the place open. "Right now, I've got one foot on the top of the ground and trying to get the other off the banana peel and get it going," he said a year ago. "It hasn't been easy."
Yet he lived his motto of "Refuse to Lose," and the doors stayed open until five days after his death.
"I don't know how he did it," sighed Mr. PITCHER, "but I do know that it drained him financially, physically and emotionally."
Mr. CHUVALO is all too aware of the pitfalls of the fight game. "Guys like Jack are really unsung heroes. They don't get enough credit for what they do. That's a tough business, to open a gym and keep it going. If you want to get rich quick, you better not open a boxing gym."
Even so, Mr. HARRELL owned quite a collection of ring memorabilia that was rumoured to have cost him $100,000 (admission to the public was free). There was Rubin (Hurricane) Carter's robe, championship belts, magazines, ticket stubs (Dempsey versus Tunney, Philadelphia, September 23, 1926, ringside, $27.50), vintage posters on the walls, scorecards, fight-worn gear and records of every professional fight on Canadian soil. His prize possession was said to be an 80-year-old speed bag platform used by Mr. Ali and Mr. CHUVALO when they trained at the Lansdowne gym for their memorable 1966 fight at Maple Leaf Gardens.
It wasn't all bling. There were also reminders of such Canadian also linked as linked as -foughts as Jack (Rapier of the North) Delaney and George (Little Chocolate) Dixon.
As for the hall of fame, which was founded in 1969 and housed in Florida Jack's Boxing Club since 2000, Mr. HARRELL knew that at around 350 names, the list of inductees was bloated. He talked about starting over and using the space "for guys who really should be there."
Anyway, the mementos now languish in the dark, still in their long, glass display cases, or are crated up, awaiting an uncertain future. "Maybe with Jack's death comes the death of the Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame," mused Mr. Jones. "With Jack gone, who's gonna step up to the plate?"
The gym, on the other hand, known for its punishing conditioning program, was the place for Hollywood types to get buffed when they shot in Toronto. Mr. HARRELL whipped actors Mira Sorvino, Chris Penn and Carrie-Anne Moss of Matrix fame into shape for their movie roles. He appeared in a music video with Mr. Ali's daughter, Laila, and served as boxing consultant on the 2000 teen thriller film, The Skulls.
He fought a bit as an amateur and in the service, but claimed he never had the right people behind him to turn pro. Asked who Mr. HARRELL's favourite boxer was, Mr. Jones doesn't hesitate: Sugar Ray Robinson.
While Mr. HARRELL may have been at home amid the thud of heavy bags and the smell of sweat, "he was frustrated with the whole fight scene," Mr. Jones said, referring to the lack of big-ticket cards and tepid interest in the sport in Canada, at least compared to hockey or baseball.
"He didn't get any support from Canadians, the sports world, the media, the other fighters. But his whole life was talking boxing. He really loved the fight game. That was his life, man."
And he never turned anyone away from his gym, especially kids for whom boxing may have meant the difference between a life and jail -- or worse. There were several of those. One of them remained behind after all the other guests had left a memorial for Mr. HARRELL held last month at the Naval Club.
"He was sobbing his heart out," said club first vice-president Norrie MILLEN. "He explained that Jack had taken him off the streets and treated him like a son. He just did not know what he was going to do now that Jack had 'crossed the bar.' It was so moving and had us all a bit weepy that Jack could affect one young life so much."
Jack Raymond HARRELL was born in Tallahassee, Florida, on December 4, 1944, and died in Toronto of pneumonia on March 12, 2006. He was 61. He leaves two sons, J.J., 22, and Eric, 13, and a fiancée, Judith PASHLEY.

First gun death of 2006 comes early
A 21-year-old North York man was shot in his car early yesterday morning.
By Kim BRADLEY, Special To The Free Press, Mon., January 2, 2006
Toronto -- Not more than five hours after ringing in the new year, a 21-year-old man was gunned down in the driver's seat of his Cadillac DeVille yesterday.
Dillan Yhanike ANDERSON of North York was pronounced dead at Sunnybrook hospital after he was found slumped over in the driver's seat of his car in an alley at Eglinton and Locksley avenues, east of Dufferin Street, around 5 a.m.
"Here we are just into 2006 and already there is another mother planning to bury her son," said homicide Det. Steve RYAN. " It's sad. It's the first homicide of the year and we have a long year ahead of us. I'd like to get it solved quickly."
Residents expressed concern that Toronto's rash of gun violence from last year has spilled over into 2006 and their neighbourhood.
"It's ridiculous," said Maria HERRETT who, after celebrating New Year's Eve at Nathan Phillips Square, slept through the gunshots fired below her apartment window.
"It's getting to the point where you can't even walk down the street," she said, adding she first started noticing the escalating crime of 2005 after Jamal HEMMINGS, 17, was shot November 9 at Eglinton and Marlee avenues, not far from yesterday's murder.
"I was scared to take my (eight-year-old) daughter downtown for New Year's," HERRETT said. "Everyone's talking tough, but what is really being done?"
At the New Year's Day levee, Mayor David MILLER said he was disappointed to learn of yesterday's murder.
"Every shooting fills me with sadness and this one again appears to be connected to the gang and the gun trade. It tells me that the things we're doing are the right things -- we just have to get them moving."
RYAN said police believe whoever shot ANDERSON walked over to the car and opened fire.
He couldn't say how many times ANDERSON was hit until after today's autopsy.
The car's driver's side window was shattered and there was a bullet hole in the windshield.
"I think someone approached the vehicle and shots were fired from outside the car," RYAN said.
Forensic officers spent most of yesterday sifting through the snow around the car, looking for bullet casings. At one point they called in a steam truck to melt the snow around the car.
Police are looking to talk to anyone with information about ANDERSON's movements before he was shot.
ANDERSON was known to police. In 2003 ANDERSON and a 17-year-old were arrested in connection with the robbery and shooting of a man near Jane Street and Wilson Avenue. The victim in that case survived.
Last year Toronto had 78 murders, 52 involving shootings. The city didn't record its first murder in 2005 until January 14.

Teenager remembered as friendly, full of fun
Cassandra HARDWICK was fatally injured while using a crosswalk on her way to school.
By Peter GEIGEN- MILLER, Free Press Reporter, Wed., April 12, Grieving Friends and classmates remember Cassandra HARDWICK as outgoing, friendly and full of fun.
The Grade 12 student at Sir Wilfrid Laurier secondary school was fatally injured Monday morning while using a Southdale Road crosswalk a block from the school.
It's the latest in a spate of pedestrian accidents that have killed seven people on London streets in 2004 and 2005 and injured many more.
Yesterday, shocked classmates responded to HARDWICK's death by creating a memorial at the accident site.
The roadside tribute features flowers, photos and a large poster filled with hand-written messages and memories of HARDWICK, 17.
The popular student, voted funniest at Laurier this year, laughed a lot and made others laugh, classmates remembered yesterday.
"She was the queen of funny faces," said Grade 12 classmate Katie ELDRIDGE. "If you had a bad day, you could talk to her and she'd cheer you up."
Jessie FOSTER, also in Grade 12, said HARDWICK always made her smile.
"If you didn't know her, you missed out on something," FOSTER said.
Laurier principal Frank GALIZIA spoke about HARDWICK before her name was officially released, describing her as "a lovely young lady, just a good person."
He said the young woman was a good student and well thought of by staff and students alike.
GALIZIA said guidance counsellors and the Thames Valley District school board's traumatic events response team have been at the school to provide support for any staff and students who need it.
GALIZIA said the student body has responded to the death with compassion, supporting each other in their grief.
The accident occurred at a crosswalk on Southdale west of Millbank Drive, where the school is located.
The crosswalk is controlled by buttons that are pushed to turn traffic lights on Southdale red and give pedestrians a walk signal.
Police are investigating the role of the crosswalk in the accident.
Area resident Wilfrid VOAKES said he'd like to see more protection for pedestrians crossing heavily travelled Southdale Road.
He would like to see school zone warning signs and reduced speeds on Southdale Road near the crosswalk.
"We need signs to slow the traffic down and make drivers more aware of the kids," VOAKES said.
He points out the neighbourhood has Laurier secondary school and two elementary schools.
"It will probably happen again if they don't do something," VOAKES warned.

Hit-and-run victim popular
Michael Salentyn was due to graduate from Western in June with a degree in aviation.
By Peter GEIGEN- MILLER, Free Press Reporter, Fri., April 14, A 23-year-old man, struck and fatally injured in London by a hit-and-run driver this week, had just completed a four-year commercial aviation training program and was heading for a career as a pilot.
Michael SALENTYN of Grand Bend was on his way to achieving his lifetime dream.
He'd just finished four years of classroom and flight training in the University of Western Ontario's commercial aviation management program and was to receive his degree at convocation in June.
The death of the popular, dedicated and fun-loving student has hit people hard in University of Western Ontario's close-knit aviation program, leaving classmates in tears, said Keith FLEMING/FLEMMING, director of Western's commercial and administrative studies program.
"It's a horrific loss," said FLEMING/FLEMMING. "It has really affected people deeply."
SALENTYN was a highly accomplished student who excelled in a rigorous program that requires students to carry a full academic load and complete flight training.
"He was very strong academically and he excelled at the flight training," FLEMING/FLEMMING said. "He had to satisfy not just the university, but also Transport Canada."
SALENTYN is remembered as a bright, pleasing, gregarious and happy individual.
"I never encountered him in the hall when he didn't have a big smile on his face," said FLEMING/FLEMMING. "He clearly was in his element entirely and was doing what he wanted to do. He loved aviation."
SALENTYN had concern for others and took an interest in students in earlier years of the aviation program, FLEMING/FLEMMING said.
"I have many accounts of his caring way and how he was always looking out for others. He was watchful and considerate of others, a real leader."
SALENTYN was out with Friends when struck early Tuesday by a vehicle that failed to stop. He died later that day in hospital.
The hit-and-run occurred at Castlegrove Boulevard and Walmer Gardens in northwest London in a popular living area for Western students.
London police located the suspected vehicle several hours later a short distance away.
Oscar MARROQUIN- PONCE, 23, of Castlegrove Boulevard, was charged with leaving the scene of an accident.
A memorial fund is being created in SALENTYN's memory. The money will create a bursary to support a student in the University of Western Ontario aviation program.
Donations can be arranged through the Hopper Hockey Funeral Home in Exeter, phone (519) 235-1220, or can be sent to Foundation Western, Room 11, Alumni Hall, University of Western Ontario, London, N6A 5B9.
Cheque donations should be made payable to Foundation Western and should mention SALENTYN.

37th Afghan fatality from Thunder Bay
By Free Press News Services, Sun., October 1, 2006
The identity of a soldier from Thunder Bay killed in Afghanistan was revealed yesterday, as one of the deadliest months for Canadian troops in decades came to an end.
Pte. Josh KLUKIE was on foot patrol Friday when he stepped on an insurgent's explosive booby trap in the Panjwaii district west of Kandahar City.
A military official said Friday the explosive was big enough to be an anti-tank mine.
KLUKIE was the 10th Canadian soldier to die in Afghanistan in September, and the 37th since 2002.
His death came on the same day that funerals were held in Canada for three other soldiers who were killed September 18 by a suicide bomber.
Cpl. James MILLER, of Hamilton, suffered from deafness in his left ear and a possible concussion after Friday's attack. MILLER's unit was also hit by a car bomb a couple of weeks ago.
A woman answering the phone at the KLUKIE family home in Thunder Bay said yesterday the family had no comment.
In a statement issued yesterday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper offered his condolences to KLUKIE's family, Friends and loved ones.
In other developments:
- Afghan President Hamid Karzai said yesterday he and Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf will jointly lead a series of tribal gatherings along their countries' shared border to quell attacks on Afghanistan by Pakistan-based Taliban rebels. Karzai said he wants an end to the Taliban incursions from Pakistan.
- A suicide bomber detonated himself next to Afghanistan's Interior Ministry yesterday, killing at least 12 people and wounding more than 40, an official said.

MILLER, Charlene B.
In loving memory of a dear mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Charlene B. MILLER, who passed away November 18, 2001.
So often do we reminisce,
And share a laugh or two,
Fondly telling stories of the things you'd say and do.
Your memory is our keepsake,
With which we'll never part,
God has you in His keeping,
We have you in our hearts.
Too loved to ever be forgotten, your son Jack and Family.

Two drown after falling through ice
Cellphone, candles save one man's life
By Robin MacLENNAN, Monday, January 30, 2006
A 22-year-old Barrie man who fell off the back of a dirt bike as it plunged into Lake Simcoe early Sunday morning pulled himself out of the water and used his cellphone to call 911.
He then sat on the ice for about four hours, waiting for help.
His two Friends who were driving the bikes when they hit a four-foot pressure crack in the ice at about 4 a.m., however, drowned in the deep water between Snake Island and Fox Island.
“I think he was just a little closer to the ice when they went in, and he was able to scramble out,” said York Regional Police Det. Rod RAMAGE.
The man, who was travelling with a survivor kit including a flashlight, candles and a cellphone wrapped in plastic inside his backpack, lit a fire on the ice to keep warm while waiting for rescue workers.
He was found by Innisfil firefighters at about 7: 45 a.m. and transported to shore in an air boat.
He was treated at Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie for hypothermia, and police said “he'll be perfectly Okay.&rdquo
Emergency crews searched the lake near Innisfil unsuccessfully for about four hours, struggling to locate the man.
“Phone reception in the area wasn't that good and he didn't know exactly where he was,” South Simcoe Police Sgt. Brian MILLER said. “It was pretty dark out there and difficult to find him.&rdquo
The bodies of the other men were recovered by York Regional Police divers at about 3: 30 p.m., and identified as Brian DWYER, 22, of Innisfil and Randal HILTS, 22, of Bradford.
Police said the men left an Innisfil home at about 3 a.m., eventually venturing out across the ice after “joy-riding” along the shoreline.
“The surviving witness was uncertain where they went out onto the ice because they had been riding up and down the shore area for quite a while,” said Det. RAMAGE.
Riding motocross motorcycles without headlights, RAMAGE said the three “were doing the typical things that 22-year-old boys do when they get out on their motorcycles in an area where they don't have to worry about other vehicles.
“They were all over hill and dale,” RAMAGE said.
“It is my understanding they were doing their motocross activities in around the shore, on and off the ice in the shallow area, for about an hour before they decided to head across the lake.&rdquo
The trio of Friends was riding tandem across thin ice between Fox Island and Snake Island when their vehicles went into open water, police said.
They were “going for a drive around the area there, and had no specific plan to go anywhere.&rdquo
Investigators cautioned residents not to drive onto unsafe ice.
“You have to be aware of the conditions that exist and the thickness of the ice and if you're not familiar, don't go out,” York Regional Police Inspector Norn MILES cautioned. “Unfortunately, we've had a lot of these incidents over the years and they're tragic for everyone.&rdquo
Onlookers gathered at the shore off Innisfil Beach Park, straining to watch rescue efforts happening a few kilometers out in the lake.
“It's too bad; you hate to see it,” Bill ANDREWS said. “Probably young guys doing something foolish.&rdquo
Police said alcohol may have been a factor in the drownings.
Ice conditions in the area are described as unsafe because of recent warm temperatures and rain. A steady downpour drenched rescuers and those who watched from shore Sunday, as water pooled on the lake, turning ice into slush.
“I wouldn't go out there for anything right now,” ANDREWS said, shaking his head. “Just look at the conditions.&rdquo

Ex-chief an innovator
By Amy LAZAR, Wednesday, July 19, 2006
In 1974, William (Bill) BLANCHE hired Orillia's first policewoman.
He also implemented new technology, successfully lobbied for a new police building and built partnerships between the force, the public and social-awareness clubs.
The city's former police chief, who died peacefully at Soldiers' Memorial Hospital on July 17, was forward-thinking and innovative, said longtime friend and colleague Don MILLER.
"I admired the man because of his honesty, his uprightness, and for what he gave to the country's military service," said Miller.
BLANCHE, a Second World War veteran, served with the Toronto Scottish regiment, Royal Canadian Armed Service Corps, from 1936-45. The longtime resident of Orillia held the position of police chief between 1971 and 1980.
Before he was chief, BLANCHE was promoted to staff sergeant, leaving a vacancy in the forensic identification department.
MILLER trained to take over for him, and they worked together until BLANCHE's retirement in 1980.
They stayed in touch, however, and both attended a police force reunion in June.
A funeral service will take place at Mundell Funeral Home on Friday at 11 a.m.
Members of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 34 will gather there for a service at 7 p.m.
Memorial donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Alzheimer Society.

Tom HODGSON, Artist And Athlete: (1924-2006)
The last surviving member of the Painters Eleven group that introduced abstract art to Toronto was an anti-academic who favoured spontaneity over skill. He was also a champion canoeist
By John CHAPUT, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Tom HODGSON grew up on Toronto's Centre Island near Hanlon's Point, a locale named after the legendary 19th-century rower Ned HANLON, but chose canoeing as his water sport. That proved wise as he became a Canadian Olympian on the water and even symbolic in his lifelong occupation as an artist. Whereas a rower gazes back on the water he has spanned, the paddler always looks ahead.
Technically a master of representational fundamentals, Mr. HODGSON enjoyed a long career in advertising, could paint striking realistic portraits, and picked up extra money doing courtroom sketches. His quest as an artist, however, was to find new means to express creativity, even if it meant suppressing skill and rebelling against an establishment he regarded as stifling.
"He thought the most creative people were the young who weren't influenced by anything," says daughter Lise SNAJDR. "My father was a skilled draftsman, but, in a way, he was against skill because it was all stuff you picked up from life experience. He was left-handed, but he went through a period of drawing only with his right hand in an attempt not to be too skillful. As it turned out, he developed an ambidexterity that proved to be another skill.
"His painting was spontaneous -- everything he did was -- but he wanted it to look that way. He could be free and liberal with paint, and put his feelings into a work."
Described by some as "anti-intellectual," Mr. HODGSON was, in fact, a deep thinker who would be better described as anti-academic. "He had his own ideas," says artist Gary MILLER of Peterborough, Ontario "He had great admiration for Willem de Kooning, but he didn't want to just cater to someone's opinion. He was stubborn and, because he was anti-academic, there was a movement to squelch Tom."
In his book Creativity Is Change, Mr. HODGSON declared skill to be "in some ways the antithesis of creativity, a sort of disrespect for man's time, and certainly for his individualism&hellip
"Creativity is curiosity, concern, trial and error, invention, not knowing, discovery. Skill is knowing how to do something…. The essence of creativity is uniqueness."
Mr. HODGSON was sometimes dismissed as a "jock painter" because many couldn't see athleticism and aesthetics harmonized in one personality. He won more than a dozen national titles at the juvenile and junior levels, and then nine more as an adult. In 1952, he took eighth place at the 1952 Helsinki Games in the 1,000-metre tandem with Art Johnson. At the Melbourne Games in 1956, he placed ninth in the 10,000-metre tandem with Bill Stevenson.
Standing just under six feet tall and weighing about 140 pounds, Mr. HODGSON was a whirlwind in the studio, his frenetic energy bustling as if his body was struggling to keep up with his train of thought. Although articulate, he could lapse into a stutter that affected his speech in childhood but was brought under control through therapy he took early in his professional life.
Mr. HODGSON's first serious painting was done from 1943 to 1945 while he was training as a pilot and gunner in the Royal Canadian Air Force. The Second World War ended and he was discharged before he could be assigned to combat, but he made numerous renderings of military life and later donated them to the War Art Museum. He first achieved artistic prominence a decade later as one of the Painters Eleven, the association of Toronto avant-garde painters who challenged artistic conservatism and gave the city its first healthy dose of abstract modernism. With Jack BUSH, Oscar CAHEN, Hortense GORDON, Alexandra LUKE, Jock MacDONALD, Ray MEAD, Kazuo NAKAMURA, William RONALD, Harold TOWN and Walter YARWOOD, they broadened the scope of Canadian art through mutual support and group exhibitions from their 1953 formation through their gradual fragmentation and dissolution from 1956 to 1960. Their affiliation was more professional than theoretical; they used disparate approaches and had no aesthetic commonalities.
Works of the Painters Eleven grew in demand and value in the '60s, but just a little too late for Mr. HODGSON to take full advantage of it. Short of materials at the time, he painted over some of the canvasses that could have brought in good money. Bad luck also struck in 1993 when a fire at his cottage destroyed many of the works he had stored there.
As a senior instructor at the Ontario College of Art, he was in the forefront of outrage at the upheaval of the school brought about by the policies of new president Roy ASCOTT in 1971-72. As a tenured professor, Mr. HODGSON was able to keep his job while many of his colleagues were fired, only to quit himself within a few months. Ironically, he was one of only two people on staff who had opposed the institution of tenure at the Ontario College of Art in the 1960s.
"Tom believed in the process of creativity as one of constant change and in the freedom of artists," says Mr. MILLER, then a student at the Ontario College of Art. " ASCOTT and later Royden RABINOVITCH were from the New York school, very radical and modern, and they were telling students their work was garbage. So Tom broke away, formed the Z School, and took half the student body with him."
As protests go, it was symbolically powerful and a practical failure.
"The Z School lasted about six months," recalls Don MORRISON, an artist and illustrator who was Mr. HODGSON's long-time friend and business partner. "You can't very well have a school without a structure or bureaucracy."
Mr. MORRISON and Mr. HODGSON shared studio space, first on Church Street across from St. James Cathedral, then in a warehouse on the corner of Dufferin and Bloor. Those were also venues for Drawing Night in Canada figure classes held every Thursday. The classes were conducted as the antithesis of the typically sombre gathering of sketchers and painters around a nude model.
"Usually at classes like that, it's like listening for a pin to drop," Mr. MORRISON says. Drawing Night in Canada was different. "These were noisy, vocal, 10 to 18 artists talking and joking. Anyone could grab a cold beer for 50 cents. The model would talk back and tell stories, too."
Inevitably, Mr. MORRISON wearied of the back-lane access to the warehouse and told his partner he'd prefer a storefront studio.
"A storefront?" Mr. HODGSON retorted. "I need a storefront like I need a hole in the head." In a matter of weeks, they had two storefront studios, one of them facing the historically infamous but architecturally engaging Mental Health Centre at 999 Queen Street West.
"Tom was impulsive, just like his painting. He would do exactly what he wanted," Mr. MORRISON says. "He built a swimming pool in the backyard of every house he owned. He would attempt to do almost anything. One day, he had a plumber come to his home on MacPherson Avenue because of a leak and the plumber said a lot of digging was necessary to get at the incoming line in front of the house. When he told Tom what it would cost, Tom said: 'I'll tell you what, I'll dig it myself.' After he had dug this enormous hole, I told Tom: 'Well, it may have been a lot of work to dig, but it'll be easy to fill in.' 'I don't want to fill it in,' he told me. 'I'm going to build a ramp so I can drive my bike right under the front porch and into the basement.' He had three motorcycles -- a BMW, a Husqvarna, and a Can-Am. So he built the ramp.
"It didn't occur to me that if he took the ramp to come in the basement, he'd use it to get out, too. I was renting on the second floor, and the first time he revved up one his bikes -- VRRRROOOOM! I jumped right out of bed."
Mr. HODGSON's energetic and impulsive nature, bohemian cultural surroundings and enjoyment of good times were an ideal formula for trouble in a man ripe for midlife crisis. He had a number of lovers and ended his first marriage to Wilma HODGSON before settling into a peaceful lifestyle with his second wife, Catherine GOOD. They moved to Peterborough in 1990. A few years later, he began to display the first signs of Alzheimer's. He was the last surviving member of the Painters Eleven.
Thomas Sherlock HODGSON was born on June 5, 1924, in Toronto. He died on February 27, 2006, near Peterborough, Ontario, of Alzheimer's disease. He is survived by his sons Mark, Rand and Timothy, daughters Lise Snajdr and Kara Warburton, and sister Jane HODGSON. He was predeceased by his wife, Catherine.

Murray LISTER, Royal Canadian Air Force Air Vice-Marshal (1912-2006)
In 1966 he was rising to the top of his cherished Royal Canadian Air Force when he resigned to protest against Ottawa's plan to unify the military and outfit Canada's Armed Forces in lamentable green serge
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S8
Ottawa -- Murray LISTER was a man of integrity. In 1966, as an Royal Canadian Air Force air vice-marshal in charge of Air Defence Command, he quit rather than stand by and watch Paul HELLYER unify Canada's armed services. Defying the minister of national defence in 1966 came at a very high price for Mr. LISTER, whose responsibility is was to defend Canada against aerial attack by the Soviet Union. Unlike hundreds of other senior officers, he deliberately refused to follow Mr. HELLYER's dictatorial party line and lost his promotion to air marshal, at that time a rank equivalent to an army lieutenant-general.
Mr. LISTER's decision took many by surprise, since he was fifth from the top of the Royal Canadian Air Force's seniority list, but he never regretted following his conscience at such a great personal cost, his son, Murray, said. "He was a man of principle and the main principle he followed was duty. He declined promotion and accepted early retirement on the principle of duty toward the traditions and morale of the air force."
The trouble had started after he made his feelings known. He believed that while the traditions of the Royal Canadian Navy and the army were important, those of the Royal Canadian Air Force were unique. "He didn't want any service tradition to be diluted," his son said. "He felt that the effectiveness of each of the three services was built on morale. There was no point in destroying this morale."
One day in mid-March of 1966, during the height of the unification crisis that gripped Parliament and the country, Mr. LISTER was summoned to Ottawa and found himself on the carpet. Air Chief Marshal Frank MILLER, the chief of the defence staff, accused him of criticizing unification in speeches to subordinates.
Fortunately, Mr. LISTER's aide, retired squadron leader Robert FLYNN, had taken notes on what his boss had actually said. "While he did not 100-per-cent support the concept, he impressed those over whom he had command that it was his and their duty to respect and honour the political directives. It was a very uneasy and stressful time for him, but he weathered the storm," Mr. FLYNN said.
Mr. HELLYER's ambitious drive to create one service from the navy, army and air force, unveiled in 1964 in a government white paper, created enormous controversy. Mr. HELLYER insisted his dual plan of integration and unification would save millions of dollars that would be better spent on new equipment, but many saw it as a direct attack on the military's cherished, British-based traditions. Thousands of sailors, soldiers and airmen were appalled that Mr. HELLYER wanted to scrap their traditional uniforms of navy blue and army khaki and replace them with a common green serge. Sailors and airmen would wear army ranks on their sleeves.
Mr. LISTER was a strong supporter of integration, which sought to eliminate costly triplication such as separate personnel and supply systems. If he'd decided to put his career before his principles, there's no telling how high he might have risen, since Mr. HELLYER desperately needed senior officers to toe his party line and take over from those who decided to resign.
Mr. LISTER, known as a strict disciplinarian, had a strong streak of stubbornness, his son said. "His sense of duty came from his mother, who was very strict herself and brought him up that way. He had enormous willpower. He used logic in arguing and was quite an intellectual. He was a super-achiever."
Tragically, the stress of coping with unification may have affected Mr. LISTER's first marriage to Janet RICHMOND, their daughter Sydney said. Her parents were divorced in 1971 after 32 years of marriage. Still, there was plenty of hope and happiness at the beginning, she said. "My dad always told us how much fun she was, how talented she was… It was a love story."
After graduating from the Royal Military College of Canada in 1935, Mr. LISTER flew fighters with the Royal Canadian Air Force. He and his bride of four months happened to be in England when war broke out on September 1, 1939. Naturally, he thought he'd soon be flying against the German Luftwaffe, but brass had a better appreciation of his talents.
A week later, he was recalled to Canada and put to work organizing all bombing and gunnery training facilities for the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. Dubbed the "Aerodrome of Democracy," Canada built an enormous network of training bases that, over the next five years, trained 131,500 aircrew from the British Commonwealth and Allied nations. Overall, the Royal Canadian Air Force grew dramatically to 215,000 men and women and 88 squadrons.
Promoted to group captain in 1943 at the early age of 31, Mr. LISTER tried to get overseas to fly on operations but never made it, his son said. "He was too valuable. That bothered him to the end of his life, [since] his first love was flying."
The closest he came to going operational was to command Station Tofino, British Columbia, an air base that flew long-distance anti-submarine patrols far into the Pacific. His 1944-45 posting earned him a mention in dispatches: "By his ability and outstanding devotion to duty he has raised the standard of this unit to a high pitch of operational efficiency."
After the war, Mr. LISTER filled four key positions as the Royal Canadian Air Force expanded dramatically to 52,000 men and women. In 1954, he was appointed chief of plans and intelligence. In 1958, he was appointed deputy vice-chief of the Royal Canadian Air Force and chief of training, a job that gave him and his wife Janet -- known as a gracious hostess -- a high profile on Ottawa's diplomatic cocktail circuit.
In 1960, Mr. LISTER went to Colorado Springs where he spent four years at North American Air Defence Command as deputy chief of staff, operations. Mr. LISTER played a key part in organizing North American Air Defence Command, an agency set up to protect North America from air attack. He had a first-hand view of the Cuban missile crisis that brought the United States and the Soviet Union to the brink of nuclear war in 1962.
Jaye LISTER, then 14, still remembers the worries she experienced when her father didn't come home for four days. It was the height of the Cold War and nuclear conflict seemed a horrible possibility for millions. "We had a red phone in the master bedroom, a direct line to North American Air Defence Command headquarters. One morning I asked mum where Dad was. Her reply was, 'I don't know. The red phone rang and your father left. I don't know when we'll see him.' We had no contact with him at all."
In 1964, Mr. LISTER took command of Air Defence Command, which included squadrons of CF-100 and CF-101 fighters. Mr. FLYNN remembers his boss as "a very demanding person yet very patient and understanding. He had a great sense of humour yet was a no-nonsense type. When toughness was demanded he could dish it out, but always in a human and respectful manner. [He] treated me, as he did everyone, with human understanding."
After retiring from the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1966, Mr. LISTER became a gentlemen farmer, growing apples and wheat and raising sheep and cattle on a farm near Picton, Ontario In 1997, more than 50 years after he had last flown an aircraft, Mr. LISTER took to the sky one last time as a pilot. Although by then blind in one eye, he made a "beautiful flight," an observer said.
"[It's] exactly like riding a bicycle," Mr. LISTER said at the time. "You never forget. Everything felt very natural. It was tremendously exciting."
Murray Duncan LISTER was born on January 17, 1912, in Edmonton.
He died of pneumonia on January 7, 2006, in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario He was 10 days short of his 94th birthday. He leaves his wife Elizabeth DAILLEY, son Murray, and daughters Sydney and Jaye. He also leaves stepdaughters Elizabeth and Lynne.

Jane JACOBS -- I Remember
By Sally GIBSON, Page S7
Sally GIBSON of Toronto writes about Jane JACOBS, whose obituary appeared yesterday.
When I heard that Jane JACOBS had died, I cycled to Toronto City Hall to hear Mayor David MILLER address council. I felt compelled to go to the civic heart of Ms. JACOBS's adopted city. I read The Death and Life of Great American Cities in the spring of 1968 during my last semester at university. It was the first truly pro-city book I had ever read. It seemed that most people who then wrote about cities really hated them and wanted them to be something else. Ms. JACOBS loved cities, and in some ways we might say that she wanted them to be more themselves: dense, diverse, creative, and alive. Her book changed my life, as it did many others. I grew up in the United States. When marriage took me to Toronto, I was comforted, and excited, by the fact that Jane JACOBS had chosen Toronto for her home. I joined many of the "battles" that she championed -- opposing the Spadina Expressway, supporting the Toronto Island community, opposing the megacity, supporting greater autonomy for cities. We were so incredibly lucky to have her. As I sat in the council chamber, listening to Mr. Miller's civic eulogy, I remembered many occasions when I had heard Jane JACOBS address council and large audiences of citizens, on all the topics mentioned earlier. The last time I heard her there was when she had been invited to unveil Toronto's new Pedestrian Charter, which flowed naturally from her ideas. She pulled the chord that released the drape covering the charter. She said positive things about the charter, which was the first municipal pedestrian charter in the world, and the volunteers who worked so hard to create it. And then she changed her tone. She turned directly toward the audience of smiling, applauding councillors, looked them in the eye, and all but shook a finger at them. "Now the hard work begins," she said in her forthright manner. "It's up to you to ensure that these principles are carried out." It still is.

GRIFFITHS, William F.
Died peacefully surrounded by his family Friday, July 14th at the age of 91. Bill was a caring and devoted husband of the late Madge GRIFFITHS (1915-2004) and loving father of Vicki and Debbie. He was also a proud grandfather of Rebecca, David, Jacqueline, Faith and Angela and dear brother of Kaye MILLER and the late Violet ROBINSON and Mayme THORSTEINSON. Bill was born January 5th, 1915 in Saltcoats, Saskatchewan and lived for close to two years in Aber Frau, North Wales as a young child with his mother and sister, Violet. He began a lifelong career in the grocery business at the age of eight when he delivered groceries for the local food store in Saltcoats. He began working with Canada Safeway Limited at the age of 19 in Regina, Saskatchewan moving to various towns in the province until he became the youngest store manager in the company's history in Shonavan at the young age of 23. In 1940 he was transferred to Rosetown, Saskatchewan where he met his future wife, Madge MAYCOCK, the dietician at the local hospital. He joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1941, served as a rear gunner on the 415 and 419 Squadrons and completed two tours over Europe earning him the Distinguished Flying Cross presented to him by the King of England in 1945. While overseas, he reunited with his love, Madge and they were married in Tourquay, England November 5th, 1945. Following the wedding, Bill was transferred to Germany where he was part of the Nazi war trials. Upon his return to Canada, he continued his working relationship with Canada Safeway in Vancouver in 1947 where he managed a store for six months and then moved into the office as a produce buyer. He subsequently moved to Saskatoon in 1948, and finally to Winnipeg in 1950 for the remainder of his working career. There he continued with Safeway until his retirement in 1980 having served over 40 years with the company and culminating in his final role as Chairman of the Board of Canada Safeway Limited.

She sold the first hot dog at the Air Canada Centre
By Danny GALLAGHER, Page S7
Toronto -- Bessie LAMSON, who worked hard all her life, died at the Carpenter Hospice in Burlington, Ontario, on June 24. She was 107.
Over the years, Ms. LAMSON toiled as a maid, put in time on an assembly line, worked at Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens when it was first built in the 1920s and sold the first hot dog at the Air Canada Centre in 1999.
Born on February 8, 1899, she was the eldest of eight children born to Charles and Charlotte LAMSON, descendants of Empire Loyalists who had settled in Cardinal, Ontario She left home in her early teens to work at a hospital across the St. Lawrence River in Ogdensburg, N. Y, then moved to Toronto to become a maid at the Park Plaza Hotel.
Later, she worked for 12 years for the Elizabeth Arden beauty company, where she was employed in the lunch room, on the assembly line and in the packaging department. On her way to work one day, she noticed that houses were being torn down in Toronto to make way for a new hockey shrine to be known as Maple Leaf Gardens.
"She was very upset with the buildings being taken down and that some people would have no place to live," said her niece, Nancy MILLER- KARKOULAS, of Burlington. "But she said she couldn't do anything about it and decided she would go there and work part-time selling hot dogs."
When Ms. LAMSON's supervisor at the Gardens told her she couldn't listen to Leafs games on her transistor radio (her job was far from the playing surface), she quit and purchased season's tickets way up in the grey seats. On February 13, 1999, she attended the final game played at the Gardens and was on the ice for the final ceremonies.
When the Air Canada Centre replaced the Gardens, she was asked to sell the first hot dog there. The sale was made to Leafs owner Steve STAVRO. Ken DRYDEN, then club president, had been the intended target but he'd been delayed by traffic. Ms. LAMSON was fond of Mr. DRYDEN because, for many years, he had sent her birthday cards.
Ms. LAMSON, who liked a shot of brandy here and there, once explained the reasons for her longevity: "I did what I wanted to do, I never married and I never smoked."

The sad smile of a dying soldier
After watching Pte. Josh Klukie die, the members of 4 Platoon, Bravo Company, vow to finish their ugly little war, writes Graeme SMITH
By Graeme SMITH with a report from Marina JIMÉNEZ in Toronto, Page A1
Kandahar, Afghanistan -- On the evening they said goodbye to Private Josh KLUKIE, there was clarity in the eyes of the men who fought beside him.
They watched his casket hoisted into a cargo plane in the warm afternoon light, snapped to attention and marched off the tarmac to prepare for another mission.
Two days earlier, the soldiers of 4 Platoon, part of Bravo Company, a unit of the First Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment, had seen their friend thrown across a field by a huge explosion. They heard the 23-year-old draw his last breath, and saw his sad smile before he died.
After saying farewell yesterday, the soldiers knew what they wanted. They felt a need to get back into those fields and keep fighting. And when they finish with this ugly war on the other side of the world, they intend to visit Pte. KLUKIE's grave in Northern Ontario to talk with his mother about the day he died.
"It will be very healing for his family to meet the soldiers he served with and hear about the conditions of his last day," said Captain Piers PAPPIN, the platoon commander.
In the hours before Private KLUKIE's death last Friday, the platoon had been marching southwest of Kandahar, through the fields of grapes, wheat and marijuana where soldiers have hunted insurgents for weeks.
"No patrol is routine, but we were just doing a foot patrol," said Corporal Mike BLOIS, 24, of Exeter, Ontario He said one of the patrol's purposes was to search for improvised explosive devices in an area heavily mined by the retreating Taliban. They hadn't found any explosives that morning, but they did recover a unmanned aerial vehicle that had crashed on the battlefield.
"We got into a couple buildings, found a downed unmanned aerial vehicle, a bunch of intelligence papers, so we were having a really successful patrol," Cpl. BLOIS said. "We stayed off the roads as much as we could, going through the grape fields and the vineyards and all that."
They knew the roads were dangerous, but they couldn't find any other route as they trudged through a cluster of villages known as Pashmul. About 1 p.m., they found themselves walking north, toward a Canadian patrol base, on a makeshift track plowed by bulldozers about two weeks ago to give them a safe route around the booby traps on the main roads.
But the Taliban haven't abandoned Pashmul -- only disappeared from sight. Soldiers say the insurgents appear to have dug into the road's thick dust, which resembles brown talcum, and set up several explosives -- perhaps an anti-tank mine combined with smaller bombs -- and rigged them to detonate under slight pressure.
"When we went through, the first two guys didn't hit it," said Cpl. BLOIS, who was walking at the patrol's tail end.
"The explosion went off, and my immediate thought was it was the section commander who hit it, because he was the very first guy in the patrol," he said.
In fact, the commander was unhurt, but in the haze of dust and lingering shock of the blast it was difficult for the survivors to tell who had been injured.
"I didn't get hit with anything," Cpl. BLOIS said. "So I just started yelling people's names, and guys started to respond."
One of those who didn't answer right away was Cpl. James MILLER, of Hamilton, Ontario, who was partly deafened by the blast.
"MILLER didn't respond but he came out of the smoke and dust, and he was really disoriented. You could tell he was pretty messed up."
Cpl. BLOIS paused. " KLUKIE's name? There was no response."
Trailing behind the Canadian patrol, about 200 metres south, was a team of U.S. soldiers who specialize in clearing mines. Cpl. BLOIS threw off his heavy backpack and ran toward them for help.
"They saw me coming, and they just started running," he said. A U.S. medic joined the Canadian corporal and they started sweeping the dense foliage of grape trellises, searching for the missing soldier.
"The blast threw KLUKIE about 50 metres off the road," Cpl. BLOIS said. "He landed in the vineyard. I think he must have hit one of the walls. He was laying on his back when the American medic and I found him.
He continued: "We immediately started working, without saying anything to each other. He put a tourniquet on his right leg, which was almost completely gone. I put tourniquets on his arm and his other leg.
"You could tell he couldn't hear anything, but he could recognize me, you know. I was looking right at him. He couldn't say anything. I was just telling him to keep fighting, you know, keep fighting, keep fighting."
Pte. KLUKIE's Friends say he was a big, well-built soldier in peak physical shape, who dreamed of joining the elite JTF2 special forces. But the blast that went off under his feet was probably enough to destroy a vehicle, never mind a man.
"He was breathing," Cpl. BLOIS said. "He had a pulse. His eyes were moving. He looked right at me. It was just weird. He couldn't talk."
This quiet, desperate scene lasted maybe three minutes, Cpl. BLOIS said. "I had that last tourniquet on him, I grabbed him by the shoulder, I'm like, 'This is nothing Josh, this is nothing.' He just looked at me, smiled, and that was it. He died right there."
He was the 10th soldier to die in September and the 37th since Canadian troops went to Afghanistan in 2002 -- most of them this year.
Friends say Pte. KLUKIE was a sensitive soul who was always the first to recognize when someone was troubled.
"He was a paramedic before he joined the army," said Pte. Wes WHITFIELD of Markham, Ontario
Pte. KLUKIE grew up in Thunder Bay, the youngest of three brothers, an athlete who played basketball and football. He always took good care of his widowed mother and was helpful and kind.
"He was a selfless person," said a relative who didn't want to be identified. "He had lots of close Friends from public school and kept in touch with them all."
Before the Afghan mission, he'd had doubts about his military career, and was uncertain how he would handle deaths and injuries to his Friends. September's Operation Medusa, where Canadians scored a conclusive victory over the Taliban, changed that. Four soldiers were killed and more than 40 injured, but Pte. KLUKIE decided he could handle the suffering around him.
"A week ago, he came to me and started the paperwork for re-enlistment and he told me this is what he wanted to do for the rest of his life," Capt. PAPPIN said. "It was good for me to hear, because he was one of those soldiers who was going places, for sure."
Cpl. BLOIS helped clean up the scene and transport the body bag back to Kandahar airfield. He didn't sleep at all that first night.
He felt numb, he said, and initially he thought about quitting. But he changed his mind, and now the death of Pte. KLUKIE drives him to continue. Despite the gravity of what he had witnessed, the young soldier told the entire story with calmness and precision, and he showed no hint of hesitation about returning to the battlefield.
"I want to get back out there," he said. "He deserves it. He fought hard, and so he deserves everybody else who's here after him continuing to fight hard."

2 motorcyclists die in icy plunge
Survivor drifts on Lake Simcoe ice
Officials warn about unsafe conditions
By Robin MacLENNAN, Special To The Star With files from Astrid POEI
Innisfil, Ontario -- An Innisfil man spent four terrifying hours drifting on Lake Simcoe's treacherous ice overnight yesterday after the two Friends he was with plunged through a pressure crack on their motorcycles and drowned.
The 22-year-old survivor struggled to light candles and use a flashlight and keep in touch with police using the cellphone he'd brought along in an emergency survival pack, but rescuers said it was nip and tuck.
"Phone reception in the area wasn't that good and he didn't know exactly where he was," South Simcoe Police Sgt. Brian MILLER said, speaking of the challenge facing rescuers in locating the man.
"It was dark and difficult."
Police said they were not sure if the survivor, a passenger on one of the bikes, managed to jump off as it hit the metre-wide pressure crack in the ice at about 4 a.m. He might have climbed out of the water.
The drivers -- Brian DWYER, 22, of Innisfil and Randal HILTS, 22, of Bradford -- went down with their bikes and drowned in the deep water between Snake Island and Fox Island. Their bodies were later recovered by York Regional Police divers.
Police and fire officials have cautioned residents to stay off the ice on area lakes and rivers, especially with the region's recent cycles of thaws and freezes.
"You have to be aware of the conditions that exist and the thickness of the ice and if you're not familiar, don't go out," York Regional Police Insp. Norn MILES cautioned. "Unfortunately, we've had a lot of these incidents over the years and they're tragic for everyone."
Police said the survivor, who was travelling with a survivor kit and cellphone wrapped in plastic inside his backpack, attempted to gain some warmth by lighting candles while waiting for rescue workers. He was found by Innisfil firefighters at about 7: 45 a.m. and transported to shore in an airboat. He was treated at noon at Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie for hypothermia, abrasions and bruises, and police said "he'll be perfectly Okay." The identity of the survivor has not been released.
Emergency crews searched the lake near Innisfil unsuccessfully for about four hours, struggling to locate the man on the lake's frozen expanses.
Police said the men left an Innisfil home at about 3 a.m., eventually venturing out across the ice after "joy-riding" along the shoreline.
"The surviving witness was uncertain where they went out onto the ice because they had been riding up and down the shore area for quite a while," said York Regional Insp. Rod RAMAGE.
The three, who RAMAGE said were riding motocross motorcycles without headlights, "were doing the typical things that 22-year-old boys do when they get out on their motorcycles in an area where they don't have to worry about other vehicles.
"They were all over hill and dale, probably doing doughnuts and popping wheelies along the way," RAMAGE said. "It is my understanding they were doing their motocross activities in around the shore, on and off the ice in the shallow area, for about an hour before they decided to head across the lake."
The trio of Friends was riding tandem across thin ice between Fox Island and Snake Island when their vehicles went into open water, police said.
They were "going for a drive around the area there, and had no specific plan to go anywhere."
Onlookers gathered at the shore off Innisfil Beach Park, straining to watch rescue efforts happening near the middle of the lake.
"It's too bad, you hate to see it," said Bill ANDREWS. " Probably young guys doing something foolish."
Police said alcohol might have been a factor in the drownings.
Ice conditions in the area are described as unsafe because of recent warm temperatures and rain.
A steady downpour drenched rescuers and those who watched from shore yesterday as water pooled on the lake, turning ice into slush.
"I wouldn't go out there for anything right now," ANDREWS said, shaking his head. "Just look at the conditions."

MITCHELL, George Elwell
Passed away peacefully in the South Bruce Grey Health Centre, Kincardine, Ontario on Sunday, February 26, 2006. He was born on June 2nd, 1913, the son of James and Evelyn (WEBSTER) MITCHELL of Toronto, and grew up in the city's West End and on the family farms in Huron County near Lucknow. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War 2 and as a navigator, flew many missions over Europe during several tours of duty with the Royal Air Force 626 Squadron. After the war, he returned to Canada to work in Guelph where he met and married Ruth C. MILLER, who predeceased him in 1994. They had six children, all of whom survive: Dale (Harriet) of Durham, Doug of Georgetown, Kevan of Savannah, Georgia, Ross (Denise) of Burlington, Bruce (Diane) of Burlington and Kathleen of Hamilton. Mr. MITCHELL is also survived by 11 grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. Mr. MITCHELL earned his California degree from Queen's University. In 1953, he was hired by the Department of Municipal Affairs to oversee municipal finance in Northern Ontario. He was the Treasurer of the City of York and worked there until his official retirement in 1978. During his time at York, he was involved in setting up the financial structure for Metro Toronto. Recognized as an expert in municipal finance he was one of two advisors sent to the United States at the invitation of then President Jimmy Carter to consult on that topic. After his retirement, he worked for the Townships of Guelph and Onondaga as a Treasurer, while retaining a private accounting practice. In 1996, he moved back to the Lucknow area to live on the land he had loved as a boy. He continued his private practice until his eyesight failed him at the approximate age of 87, but he retained his mental acuity to his death. The family would gratefully accept donations to the Kincardine and Community Health Care Foundation in his memory, as a measure of thanks for the outstanding care he received in his last days. At George's request, there will be no visitation or funeral service. Cremation has taken place. Arrangements entrusted to the J.S. Jones and son Funeral Home, 905-877-3631 or visit www.jsjonesandsonfuneralhome.com

Slain Thunder Bay soldier named
Pte. Josh KLUKIE stepped on a booby trap Friday
By Lauren LA ROSE, Canadian Press
The identity of a soldier from Thunder Bay killed in Afghanistan was revealed yesterday at the end of one of the deadliest months in decades for Canadian troops.
Pte. Josh KLUKIE was on foot patrol Friday when he stepped on an insurgent's explosive booby trap in the Panjwaii district west of Kandahar City. A military official said Friday the explosive was big enough to be an anti-tank mine.
KLUKIE was the 10th Canadian soldier to die in Afghanistan in September, and the 37th since 2002. His death came the same day funerals were held in Canada for three soldiers killed September 18 by a suicide bomber.
A woman answering the phone at the KLUKIE family home in Thunder Bay said yesterday that the family had no comment.
Officials were trying to organize a news conference where a family spokesperson would likely speak to the media.
In a statement issued yesterday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper offered his condolences to KLUKIE's family and Friends. "I commend Pte. KLUKIE's commitment and bravery in serving his country," Harper said. "He gave his life so that the Afghan people could experience the same freedoms and civil rights that we in Canada cherish and value.
"Canadians will not forget the dedication and courage he demonstrated. We are proud of him, and humbled by his willingness to serve Canada."
KLUKIE was a member of First Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment, based at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, northwest of Ottawa.
Greg EBY, identified by his father as a friend of the fallen soldier, left a message on the Department of National Defence's message board September 6 telling troops he was "tremendously proud" of them.
"I'd like to say hi especially to Josh KLUKIE from Thunder Bay. You guys and gals and your families are in my prayers every day," the message stated.
Cpl. James MILLER of Hamilton suffered from deafness in his left ear and a possible concussion in the attack. MILLER's unit was also hit by a car bomb a couple of weeks ago.
Officials believe the bomb that killed KLUKIE had been planted recently.
Several soldiers had walked past the bomb before the private triggered it. Wide spacing between the soldiers on the foot patrol prevented more carnage, said Col. Fred LEWIS, deputy commander of the Canadian contingent.
