Accident Claims the Life of Flesherton Woman
Grey County O.P.P. reported details on a fatal motor vehicle rollover on Highway 10 about 30 kilometres south of Owen Sound that occurred late in the morning of November 22.
Bonnie NEIL, age 57, of Grey Highlands, (Flesherton) was operating a white 1998 Lincoln north bound on Highway 10 at approximately 11: 30 a.m. There were snow squalls in that area at the time and the roadway was dusted with snow and slush. As she left the hamlet of Berkeley she failed to negotiate a curve, spun out of control and left the roadway where the vehicle rolled down a steep embankment that bordered the highway on the east side. As the car left the roadway it clipped the starting point of a cable and post guide rail system.

The Grey Highlands Fire Department assisted officers at the scene. The roadway was closed for several hours as technical traffic investigators went over the scene.
All traffic on the portion of Highway 10 affected was re-routed around the scene from 50 Sideroad to 60 Sideroad via the East Back Line.

Body found on Walpole identified as missing teen
By Patrick MALONEY, Free Press Reporter
Considering the pair had just had a fight, Lorelei FISHER wasn't too concerned when her teenage daughter didn't return to their Walpole Island home for a few days last month.
But, as the days turned into weeks with still no word from 17-year-old Katrina KIYOSHK, FISHER became sure something was wrong.
Lambton Ontario Provincial Police yesterday confirmed her worst fears, announcing a body found in a marshy part of the native community is that of KIYOSHK, a popular teenager her mom last saw one month ago today.
"I was thinking she was with (her Friends) because she didn't call," a grieving FISHER said yesterday. "She would always call home."
Local anglers found the badly decomposed body on the island's west end last Thursday and contacted Walpole Island police, who tapped Lambton Ontario Provincial Police -- and its resources to lead the investigation.
Dental records were used to identify the body on Monday, police said.
What killed KIYOSHK is unclear, Ontario Provincial Police Const. John REURINK said, and investigators aren't sure exactly what kind of case they are facing.
"They're simply treating it as suspicious, they're not treating it as a homicide," REURINK said. "We're not sure of the cause of death."
Lambton Ontario Provincial Police say KIYOSHK was reported missing August 25, while her mother says an initial call was made to Walpole police much earlier.
The first news release on the search for the missing teen came out August 31, REURINK said.
KIYOSHK, who had attended Wallaceburg District secondary school, was described by her mother as an outgoing and fun-loving girl. She "liked everybody," FISHER said, adding the phone would ring 10 times a day for her.
"She just liked to have fun," FISHER recalled. "She wasn't scared to do anything. She was brave, eh? And bold."
Both Lambton Ontario Provincial Police and Walpole Island police want to speak with anyone who saw KIYOSHK since August 7, the last day she was seen by her family.
Anyone with information can call Walpole police at (519) 627-6011, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or Lambton Ontario Provincial Police at 1-888-310-1122.

Alex FISHER
By Hayley FISHER, Tuesday, April 19, 2005, Page A22
Father, grandfather, community leader. Born September 1, 1915, in Toronto. Died September 25, 2004, of complications from Parkinson's disease, aged 89.
It has been said that when you are born, you come into the world crying while those around you smile, and if you've lived your life right, you will die smiling while those around you cry. Whether or not people were crying when he died (and many were), no one can say that Alex FISHER did not live his life "right."
Alex FISHER was born in Toronto to immigrant parents. He learned the power of giving at an early age. When, during his childhood, a man came to the door asking for money, Alex's mother gave the man what little change she had without question. When Alex tried to stop her, knowing how little their family of seven had during the Depression, his mother said, "If a person comes to my door asking for money, he must have less than I have -- you never say 'No' to a person who asks." Alex carried this lesson with him for the rest of his life.
His life of community service began when he served as the financial chair of the March of Dimes on the "Mothers March" campaign. The campaign succeeded enormously in raising both funds and public understanding of individuals with disabilities.
Alex then went on to spearhead the Canada-Israel Children's Centres, a group of community centres that aims to bring a sense of normalcy into Israeli children's war-torn lives, as well as helps a number of other groups. Alex's sense of giving knew no bounds -- he gave help to anyone who asked, regardless of race or creed.
In 1946, shortly after the Second World War, Alex gave an accounting job to a Japanese-Canadian man. Many called his action foolish and the hiring process was extremely difficult. Still, Alex persisted. When asked why he was going to so much trouble for someone who had never helped him, Alex responded with "I'm Jewish. If I can't understand his situation, who can?"
Alex also managed the Tri-Bell Amateur Basketball team at a time when racism was the norm. Other teams would often object to playing a squad made up of black, white, Christian and Jewish players Alex would respond by threatening to withdraw the team and default the game. Alex's tireless work in this field later led to his induction into the Canadian Basketball Hall of Fame.
As important as the community was to Alex, his family was even more so. Weekly Friday night family dinners were not optional for any member of the family, nor were family vacations. When his family grew to include spouses, each was welcomed into the family with open arms. When grandchildren began to arrive, Alex took all 12 of us, individually, on trips to New York. One goal of these trips was to show the grandchildren how special we were to him. The way that Alex played with the grandchildren while the other grown-ups sat upstairs, the way he took us out for meals and the way he constantly held an active interest in our lives left no doubt in the minds of the grandchildren that we were special to him. It is not often that a grandfather will sit down with his 12-year-old granddaughter to discuss the Spice Girls and the Backstreet Boys with her.
Alex FISHER was a tough man. After surgery to remove a brain tumour, he would often greet visitors at the hospital elevator. When the pains of old age began taking their toll on him, he did not easily succumb but fought every step of the way.
He passed away having succeeded in business and in sports. More importantly, he died having helped hundreds and having touched the lives of even more. He left behind an incredible legacy.
Hayley is Alex FISHER's granddaughter.

FISHER, Robert J.
Died peacefully on Friday, October 7th, 2005 at Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie in his 83rd year. Born in Cardiff, Wales, Bob was the youngest of six children. Bob soon would move to England and became a proud member of Her Majesty's Royal Air Force with posts in North Africa and the Middle East. Not long after, Bob met and married his wife of 48 years Patricia SEWELL. Bob was a terrific salesman and traveled all over England selling confectionery to local pubs.
In 1958 Bob and Pat moved to Canada and settled for a short time in Montreal. After knowing many Friends and earning a proven track record in sales, Bob took a job at a uniform and regalia firm in Toronto and he and Pat moved to Mississauga. It was in 1974 with his supportive wife and two small children that Bob took on his greatest challenge. He launched Fisher's Regalia & Uniform Accoutrements Co. Ltd. His expertise in the dress uniform field and his insistence on "looking out for the little guy" turned his little business venture into a million dollar business by 1985. Traveling all across Canada, Bob built cherished relationships with many of our country's firefighters, police officers, paramedics and armed forces until his retirement in 1989. Bob was a very learned individual with a keen interest in politics and a good military history book.
Bob was very much loved and will be truly missed by his loving wife Patricia, his daughter Jillian and her husband Jeff TULK, his daughter Yvonne and her husband Mark TULLOCH and mostly by his grandchildren, Christopher, Stephanie, Sara, Allysha, and Spencer. Special thanks to the nurses and doctors at Royal Victoria Hospital and all the loving caregivers that have come in contact with Bob over the past two years. Visitation will be at Steckley-Gooderham Funeral Home, 201 Minet's Point Rd. in Barrie on Tuesday, October 11th at 7 p.m. and the funeral will be at the same location on Wednesday, October 12th at 11a.m. In lieu of flowers a donation in Bob's name to the Regional Cancer Center c/o the Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie would be greatly appreciated.

Week Of Remembrance: Ted BEAMENT, Brigadier And Lawyer (1908-2005)
Military strategist's final campaign was to be allowed to live in the same nursing home as his wife of 63 years
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, November 11, 2005, Page S7
He helped plan the Normandy invasion and the liberation of France and the Netherlands, but the final victory in a brilliant military career came at the age of 95 as he battled to be reunited with his wife.
Ted BEAMENT, a retired brigadier, was forced to live apart from Brenda, his Scottish war bride.
His room was in an Ottawa veterans' hospital, while she lived across town in another facility.
Their heartbreaking separation, detailed by the Ottawa Citizen in an article published on Valentine's Day last year, won the couple great sympathy. The BEAMENTs celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary days later while still living at different addresses. They were able to visit only three times a week, while difficulties in hearing made telephone conversations frustrating.
"My mum is weepy and my dad is distressed," their daughter said at the time.
Mrs. BEAMENT was on a waiting list to join her husband at the Perley and Rideau Veterans' Health Centre, a delay that the family was told could last from six to 18 months.
Their plight led the War Amps of Canada to launch a national campaign to discover and reunite veterans unwillingly separated from their spouses.
After five months apart, the BEAMENTs were reunited at the Perley in March. They spent 15 precious weeks under the same roof before Mrs. BEAMENT died of causes related to old age. She was 91.
Mr. BEAMENT, who survived his wife by 15 months, enjoyed success in several arenas. He was a national champion as a figure skater, a first-class lawyer named king's counsel, and a decorated military strategist.
Family lore has it that Mr. BEAMENT was conceived in the summer of 1907 aboard a gondola afloat on the Grand Canal of Venice. His parents may well have had romantic notions regarding transportation, as they had met as members of the Bytown bicycle club.
Thomas Arthur BEAMENT was a prominent barrister who, in 1904, would be one of the 16 founding members of the Laurentian Club, formed by those businessmen excluded from other men's clubs because of their lack of social standing. Mr. BEAMENT's wife, Edith Louise BELFORD, had been orphaned at a young age and worked as typist in the civil service. George Edwin BEAMENT, known as Ted, was the youngest of their four children.
Educated at Ottawa Normal School and Lisgar Collegiate, the young man followed his father's demand that he attend Royal Military College, graduating in 1929. The yearbook noted the left sleeve of his cadet's uniform was not long enough to hold all his badges of distinction.
A degree in mechanical engineering was achieved at the University of Toronto two years later. He then attended Osgoode Hall, graduating in 1934, being called to the bar the same year. He was an associate in the family law firm of Beament and Beament.
It was as an engineering student that Mr. BEAMENT teamed with Elizabeth FISHER, Mary LITTLEJOHN and Hubert SPROTT to win the Canadian fours championship in figure skating at a meet at Winnipeg in February, 1930.
Mr. BEAMENT put aside his legal career with the outbreak of war in 1939. As commanding officer, he mobilized and led to England the 2nd (Ottawa) Field Battery, the famed Bytown Gunners whose members would see action at Dieppe and on D-Day. He even borrowed $2,000 from his father to outfit the men.
On Christmas Eve, 1940, he was a guest of a liaison officer for the British artillery who brought the Canadian officer to the family home in Oxford for a holiday meal. There, he met Brenda Yvonne Mary THOMS, a lithe, 27-year-old practitioner of the Dalcroze method of eurythmics, which intensifies the experience of music through movement and physical exertion. He proposed marriage the next day. Her polite rebuff did not deter such a persistent suitor. They married the following February, the bride wearing a silk wedding dress tailored from ivory-coloured curtains.
Many years later, a granddaughter, Ariana BRADFORD, questioned the brevity of the courtship. "Well, there was a war on, you know," Mr. BEAMENT replied. Two children would be born before the end of hostilities, neither, as far is known, conceived in a gondola.
A succession of command and staff appointments provided Ted BEAMENT with a series of promotions and ever greater responsibilities during the war. He was brigade major of the 1st Armoured Brigade in 1941; lieutenant-colonel and commanding officer of the 6th Canadian Field Regiment in 1942; general staff officer, grade 1, of the 4th Canadian Armoured Division, also in 1942; and, general staff officer, grade 1 (operations), of the First Canadian Army in 1943.
On November 14, 1943, he was appointed colonel (later brigadier), general staff, of the First Canadian Army. As such, he was intimately involved in the planning of the D-Day invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944. He helped guide the liberation campaign through northwest Europe, during which Canadian forces often faced fierce resistance from German defenders.
In April, 1945, during the dying days of the Nazi regime, Mr. BEAMENT was based in the Netherlands when the headquarters of the First Canadian Army learned about a prison camp holding Polish women just across the frontier. The 1st (Polish) Armoured Division was ordered to free the inmates at Oberlangen. The camp was secured on April 12, Mr. BEAMENT's 37th birthday.
Back in England on September 27, Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery opened the Khaki University of Canada in the United Kingdom, an army-operated school on the outskirts of northwest London preparing servicemen for their demobilization. Mr. BEAMENT served as university president.
The king and queen visited the school the following year on the day before the president's fifth wedding anniversary. The queen was presented a bouquet of tulips by the president's young son.
Mr. BEAMENT was appointed an officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1943. His other awards for wartime service included a Croix de Guerre (avec Palme) from France and a Military Cross from Czechoslovakia. Mr. BEAMENT had assisted the Czechoslovak Brigade in Britain, for which he was also made a member of the Order of the White Lion. He was also mentioned in dispatches.
Returning to Canada in 1946, he rejoined the family law firm with brother Warwick BEAMENT, who had also been a brigadier with the Canadian Army in Europe. The reception was not quite as welcoming as he had imagined, as his father asked for repayment of the $2,000 loan. Worse, Mr. BEAMENT faced a large tax bill.
The tax appeal board rejected his position that he should not be taxed as a Canadian resident even though he had been overseas for more than five years. The storage of civilian clothes with his father and the ownership of a bank account and safety-deposit box, coupled with his intention to return to Canada, where taken as prove of residence. He then lost an appeal to the Exchequer Court in 1951.
Finally, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled in 1952 that "the appellant was physically absent from Canada" and should be taxed accordingly. BEAMENT v. the Minister of National Revenue benefited many returning veterans and the Income Tax Act was subsequently revised.
The family law firm became involved in one of the most sensational cases in the immediate postwar period, as Warwick BEAMENT acted as defence counsel in a spy trial following the defection of Soviet cipher clerk Igor GOUZENKO.
Two years after his brother's death in 1966, Ted BEAMENT moved his practice to Beament, Green, Dust until retiring at 86, by which time he had been made a life member of the Law Society of Upper Canada. He served from 1961 to 1966 as a commissioner for the National Capital Commission in Ottawa. His charitable work included high posts on behalf of the Red Cross, the local Young Men's-Young Women's Christian Association, and Ottawa's Community Chest. He was on the board of governors of Carleton University and was honorary governor of the Corps of Commissionaires.
Befitting his sterling war service, he served as honorary colonel of the 30th Field Artillery Regiment, as the amalgamated Bytown Gunners are now known.
Mr. BEAMENT was appointed a member of the Order of Canada in the waning days of 1986. The honour was conferred for his ardent support of charitable groups, most notably his 30 years of service on behalf of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, for which he was elected chancellor of the priory of Canada.
The successful campaign to reunite Mr. BEAMENT with his wife allowed him to be at her side as she breathed her last. Even in mourning, the retired brigadier remained a stickler for detail, ensuring the date of death was recorded as June 17, 2004, as his wife had passed 15 minutes before midnight. He had held her hand as she died.
Ted BEAMENT was born on April 12, 1908, in Ottawa. He died there on September 28. He was 97. He leaves a son, Justin BEAMENT, of Down Saint Mary, Devon, England; a daughter, Meriel BRADFORD, of Old Chelsea, Quebec; five grandchildren and four great-grand_sons. He was predeceased by his wife of 63 years, the former Brenda THOMS, who died last year. He was also predeceased by a sister, Ethel, and by brothers Warwick and Geoffrey.

3 teens killed in crash
By Gail SWAINSON, Staff Reporter
Huntsville -- Two familes are mourning the loss of their only children after three teenagers -- two of them sisters -- died when their car slid on black ice and smashed into another vehicle on a cottage-country highway.
"These families lost their only children; it's unbelievably tragic," Huntsville High School principal Bruce REAIN said yesterday. Reain said all three girls excelled at school and were involved in a wide range of activities, including soccer and other sports, and the school choir.
Dorina HUBBERT, 19, and her 16-year-old sister Sabrina, along with Stephanie FISHER, an only child, died when their eastbound 2003 red Dodge Neon crossed the median on Highway 60 just before noon Tuesday.
The vehicle hit a westbound Ford Explorer driven by William BEDARD, 64. BEDARD and his 59-year-old wife Janis, both from Dwight, were treated and released at Huntsville District Memorial Hospital.
Ontario Provincial Police Const. Harry RAWLUK said an initial investigation showed that speed was likely a factor in the crash.
"Witnesses: saw the Neon fishtail and enter the westbound lane," RAWLUK said yesterday from a wrecking yard where the two vehicles were towed.
RAWLUK said the HUBBERT girls' father was notified as he was boarding a flight to Germany Tuesday afternoon. A master baker who toured the world as a consultant, Heinz HUBBERT had recently sold Henrietta Fine Bakery in Dwight, a popular destination for cottagers.
The HUBBERT sisters worked at the bakery during the summer, current owner Geoffrey HARRISS said.

Curtis McLAREN, 17: Love of life was magic
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
There might be some who would say there was no magic in Curtis McLAREN's young life. His parents knew within two weeks of their third and youngest child's birth that he had heart problems of the sort that necessitated four operations in his first three years of life -- but all of them palliative, none of them healing, none of them ever presented as a cure.
He was born without a left ventricle, the chamber that works as the heart's main pump.
"We always knew it was non-fixable," said his father Stephen McLAREN, a family physician with a practice in the Markham subdivision of Cornell, where the family lives. "It's remarkable he was able to get as far as he did."
He was just 17 when he died October 17.
There was no cure for Curtis; there was never a cure. When he was 10 years old, sitting in his new sweater on Christmas morning reading the Guinness Book of Records he'd just received as a present, he suffered a massive stroke that left him unable to walk, talk or even sit up.
Its aftermath was the only time his family had ever seen him sad. They had wheeled him down to the public atrium at Sick Kids so he could feel the bustle and flow of the real world again. But instead of beaming at passers-by, as he always had, he was quiet and still.
"It was palpable," said Stephen. "He was upset and sad."
"People were looking at him," said his mother Patti.
He was given a pacemaker; otherwise he wasn't going to survive. And then Curtis got so excited about that operation because he thought he'd be getting fixed, finally.
Up until his stroke, he'd been a kid who was up for anything his older sister and brother, Laura and Rob, did. The family lived on Main St. in Unionville then and Curtis played on the Unionville T-Ball and baseball teams. He banged on his father's drums. He used to ride his bike outside pretending he was his hero Arnold Schwarzenegger on a motorcycle.
He was a kid with a huge grin, happy every single day, still at the age when he would morph in his mind into his action heroes living out grand adventures -- when he had to teach himself how to walk and talk again.
After six months as a day patient at the Bloorview MacMillan centre -- he refused to stay there; his parents drove him and picked him up every day -- he was walking, had regained his speech and the use of his left hand. "You could see stubbornness in his eyes as an infant," his father remarked.
He once told his mother that after his stroke he thought about his mortality every day, but no one would ever have known that. To the world and to his own tight-knit family, he was a focused, funny, sunny kid.
So the same weekend he came home from rehab, he got on his bike again. His father had to hook his hands to the handlebars. He rode up and down the street and then put it away. Forever. If it was the end of childhood, it was also the beginning of Curtis' great love. He discovered cards -- soon he was able to cut, shuffle and deal with one hand. Then it was card tricks, complicated ones, involving astonishing sleight-of-hand his parents could never work out, that wowed his school Friends.
He always had a deck of cards with him -- in his knapsack, pockets, his mother's car.
At lunch at Markville Secondary School, a group would always gather whenever he'd practise his tricks. He wasn't a showman or a showoff; he used his cards to engage people.
"He was always laughing; his laugh was infectious. When he was in my class and he was laughing, people wouldn't stare, they wanted to go to him because he just overflowed with happiness and joy," said Brian Fisher, who was Curtis' homeroom teacher in Grades 7 and 8 at Unionville Public School.
But recently he had started slowing down.
Just this past September, doctors at the Hospital for Sick Children sat him down and said to him: Here's your future. Your heart is failing. You can carry on as you are now, maxed out on all the meds the doctors can think of giving you, yet losing energy despite popping seven pills each and every day.
Or you can try for a heart transplant that might not work. No guarantees.
That night he sat in the kitchen with his parents and cried for only the second time in his life, they believe. Then he got up, went to his room and turned up the volume on a Jimi Hendrix CD ("Hendrix was his thing this summer," his father said), and when he came back down, sat in front of the television and watched The Family Guy.
"He was laughing and chuckling away at the show," said Stephen, "and went to bed happy."
Three days later he emailed his cardiologist: "Let's go."
One week before his scheduled date of October 24 to start the tests to see if he qualified for a transplant, Curtis and a group from his Grade 12 Computer Technology class were out shooting a movie for a project.
It was his favourite class; he was planning to study digital media arts.
They were shooting a mock news item -- a robbery at a bus stop and Curtis played one of the witnesses: in the bus shelter.
On his way back from the shoot, he collapsed and died instantly.
In the teen world of text messaging, word of Curtis' death spread instantly.
His former teacher, Brian FISHER, had become a family friend and decided he should go to Markville high school to try to comfort many of Curtis' Friends.
But students from the other three area high schools also showed up. FISHER said he talked with 150 distraught teens who were worrying and sad about not saying goodbye to Curtis. There was a bristol board card to sign. But everybody always remembered Curtis with his card tricks.
And that is how the idea was born. They would say their goodbyes they could tell Curtis what he meant to them with playing cards.
Within 12 hours, the students had been to every high school, distributed the cards to anyone who wanted to write something to Curtis, collected them, put them back in their packages and returned them to FISHER.
"They collected three full decks," said FISHER, who presented them to the McLAREN family.
They tucked them unread into the coffin with Curtis. At the funeral home, others placed more playing cards with messages on them into the open coffin. There were cards by his side; Curtis was practically covered with cards.
And someone, at some point, had tucked an ace up his sleeve.
