East-end man is year's 81st homicide victim
By James BRADSHAW, Page A12
A postmortem was conducted yesterday on Toronto's 81st homicide victim. In the latest instance of gun violence, 25-year-old Fitawrari LUNAN died in hospital Saturday after two men wearing balaclavas stormed his home on Wilcox Creek Pathway and shot him in the head at around 12: 40 p.m. on Friday.
The incident bears a marked resemblance to a July killing when another 25-year-old was shot in the same housing co-op in the Finch and Morningside area. Police are considering the possibility that the two killings, as well as a number of nearby shootings in between, are related. Police also said they suspect Mr. LUNAN was targeted because the gunmen left a woman and a small child unharmed.

Two die in crashes, third man critical
By Amanda ROBINSON, Sun Media, Sun., August 12, 2007
An air ambulance lifts off from the scene of a head-on collision involving a car and a pickup truck on Melbourne Road west of Strathroy yesterday afternoon that left one man dead and one in hospital with life-threatening injuries. (Mike HENSEN, Sun Media)
Two people were killed and another was clinging to life after two crashes on Southwestern Ontario roads yesterday, one outside Strathroy and another on a bridge in rural Huron County.
Police were also investigating a third serious crash, a morning collision between a motorcycle and a truck on Highway 19, south of Tillsonburg, but last night still hadn't released any details.
Kevin GONCALVES, 22, of the Arkona area, died after a crash about 2: 30 p.m. on Melbourne Road, north of Murphy Road in Adelaide Metcalfe, west of London.
Police said GONCALVES was driving a car that went out of control while passing on a curve and crossed into the opposite lane of traffic and struck a pickup truck.
witnesses: said there had been deer in the area, leading to speculation one or more drivers had swerved to avoid hitting them.
An unidentified male passenger in the car, a 22-year-old from Strathroy, was flown by medical helicopter to Victoria Hospital in London with life-threatening injuries, the Ontario Provincial Police said.
The pickup driver, 19-year-old Alyse MALLET of Melbourne, was in Victoria Hospital with non life-threatening injuries, police said.
Meanwhile, in Huron County, in the village of Dublin, one person died after a vehicle went off a bridge, a duty manager with Middlesex-London Emergency Medical Services said.
Ontario Provincial Police confirmed there'd been a crash at the bridge, but last night still hadn't released any details about it.
In Middlesex County, within three minutes of the crash on Melbourne Road, a two-car collision at Nairn Road and Oxbow Drive, just outside London, sent three people to hospital. One person was in critical condition.
Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police said a car going west on Oxbow and and another going south on Nairn Road collided at the intersection.
A 73-year-old passenger in the southbound car was taken to Victoria Hospital and was in critical condition, police said. The driver of the car, Clayton LUNHAM, 75, of Forest, was in stable condition.
Andrew CLASSEN, 23, of London, driver of the westbound car, was charged with failing to yield to traffic, police said.

Young dad among 5 dead
Kevin GONCALVES might have survived the afternoon of road carnage had he been wearing a seatbelt.
By Glynnis MAPP, Sun Media, Mon., August 13, 2007
At 22, Kevin GONCALVES of Arkona was well on his way -- he had a job, a baby and a BMW he'd saved up to buy.
All that vanished Saturday, in one of four crashes on Southwestern Ontario roads that left five people dead.
Had he worn his seatbelt, GONCALVES might have survived his crash, police said.
"He was a good father and he loved his daughter very much," Larissa VAN LIESHOUT, the mother of GONCALVES' four-month-old daughter, Rozlynn, said yesterday.
GONCALVES died when the BMW he was driving crashed about 2: 30 p.m. on Melbourne Road in Adelaide Metcalfe, west of London.
GONCALVES lost control while passing on a curve and crossed into the opposite lane, striking a pickup truck, police said.
An unidentified passenger in the BMW, also 22, wasn't wearing a seatbelt, either, police said, and was flown to to a London hospital. The passenger remained in critical condition.
The pickup driver, Alyse MALLET of Melbourne, 19, who wore her seatbelt, was treated in hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
In Strathroy, GONCALVES' Friends were still recovering from the loss.
"He was really outgoing. Everyone liked him. He would always help out a friend if they needed it. That's what he would always do for me," said Steve WRAITH, who met GONCALVES in Grade 9 when both attended Strathroy District Collegiate Institute.
Along with GONCALVES, WRAITH and his girlfriend had also welcomed a newborn girl only a few months earlier.
GONCALVES worked as a shipper and receiver with egg distributor Greyridge Foods. He told Friends he was trying to save up for a condominium of his own.
WRAITH said the couples gave each other baby advice as both pregnancies developed and were excited about the births, a first for all of them.
"It was a busy time for all of us," he said.
Across the London region, other fatal crashes Saturday occurred near London, where an elderly woman died; in Huron County, where a driver plunged to his death off a bridge; and in Chatham-Kent, where two motorcycle drivers were killed in a head-on crash.
- Near Wheatley, the two motorcycle drivers died in the collision about 2: 30 p.m. that followed what police described as an attempt by one to evade an officer -- stopped on Zion Road and out of his patrol car -- trying to motion him to pull over for not wearing a safety helmet. Police said a motorcycle, driven by 21-year-old Harley PALMER of Wheatley, bypassed the officer through a field and emerged on Talbot Trail where the bike collided with another driven by Daniel McCALLUM, 26, of Dearborn, Michigan., killing both. Other motorcyclists travelling with McCALLUM were able to avoid the collision.
Ontario's police watchdog agency, the Special Investigations Unit, was notified, but is not investigating since the officer wasn't pursuing the motorcycle bike driver, police said. The Special Investigations Unit probes police actions that lead to serious injuries or death.
- In Huron County, a 31-year-old man from West Perth, in Perth County, whose name wasn't released, died after the vehicle he was driving went off a bridge at 3: 30 p.m. near Dublin.
- In Middlesex County, just outside London, a two-car collision about 2: 30 a.m. at Nairn Road and Oxbow Drive sent three people to hospital, including Marie Mae LUNHAM, 73, of Forest, who later died of her injuries. Andrew CLASSEN, 23, of London, is charged with failing to yield to traffic.
A Deadly Saturday
- 2: 30 p.m., Kevin GONCALVES, 22, of Arkona, dies in car-truck collision in Adelaide Metcalfe. - 2: 30 p.m., Harley PALMER, 21, of Wheatley and Daniel McCALLUM, 26, of Michigan, die in Wheatley-area crash of two motorcycles. - 2: 30 p.m., two car-collision near London sends three to hospital. Marie Mae LUNHAM, 73, of Forest, later dies of her injuries.

Ron BENDER, 60 Educator
Math teacher one of first to receive Prime Minister's Award
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Knowlton, Quebec -- Ron BENDER was a math teacher who taught generations of high-school students, some of whom struggled with algebra while others were gifted in calculus. One of his students was Steve MacLean, the astronaut.
Along with being a math teacher, and then department head, Mr. BENDER also marked advanced tests for gifted students in contests run by the University of Waterloo. "The idea was to create 10 problems for students to solve. They were so difficult neither Ron nor I could solve them all in the exam time frame," said Jeri LUNNEY, a math teacher who worked with Mr. BENDER. As it turned out, only the brightest students could get seven out of 10.
"He was recognized as a first-class teacher within the first five years of his career, Ms. LUNNEY said. "He was charismatic, passionate and an excellent communicator."
Few of Ron BENDER's students forged brilliant careers. Most were plodders who were afraid of math. "Let's face it, he had kids who didn't want to be in his class," said his wife, Sharon Ann. "But if he could show a student something, and get the switch to go on, it really made his day."
Mr. BENDER knew that, in the modern world, an understanding of math beyond basic arithmetic was essential.
"I would go by his classroom and he would be using a ball to explain the concept of a sphere," said Moe RODRIGUE, who started teaching with Mr. BENDER and went on to become principal of West Carlton Secondary School. "A lot of math teachers just pick up homework and assign homework. Ron wasn't like that. He was a natural teacher and involved with his students."
Ron BENDER grew up near Timmins, Ontario, where his father worked for the highways department and his mother was a housewife. A bright lad, he skipped a couple of elementary grades and then travelled an hour each way to attend high school in Timmins. When there was activity after school, he would sometimes stay in town with an aunt.
In 1964, he won a full scholarship to study math at the University of Waterloo. He graduated four years later and began teaching at Merivale High School in the Ottawa suburb of Nepean. It was at Merivale that he taught Steve MacLean, who went on to earn a doctorate in physics. It was also where he met his wife, the school secretary. They married in 1970.
In 1973, he moved to nearby Gloucester High School. The BENDERs bought a house and a parcel of land in Carp, Ontario, where they raised their children and could work outdoors. "He loved a well-stacked woodpile," Mrs. BENDER said.
Mr. BENDER also liked to visit his hometown. "He came to teach in the Ottawa area and, for the first few years, always thought he would go home some day."
After Gloucester High School, Mr. BENDER was made head of mathematics department at Earl of March Secondary School in Ottawa's western suburbs. Later, he moved to the new West Carleton Secondary School as head of the math department. "I never remember a day when he complained about going to work," Mrs. BENDER said.
In 2000, Mr. BENDER retired but remained involved in mathematics. He worked at the University of Ottawa, tutoring first-year engineering students who were weak in math.
Over the years, he received many awards for his teaching. In 1993, he was in the first group of teachers to receive the Prime Minister's Award for Teaching Excellence in Science, Technology and Mathematics. The University of Waterloo gave him the Descartes Award, named after the 17th-century French mathematician, René Descartes.
Ronald Cecil BENDER was born in Matheson, Ontario, on October 12, 1946. He died of leukemia in Ottawa on June 13, 2007. He was 60. He is survived by his wife, Sharon Ann, and their children Matt and Amy.
