Plucky cancer fighter dies in Lambton crash
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter
He was going to play in the National Hockey League one day. His heart set on that goal, 11-year-old Jalen DAY beat a rare cancer that struck him at goalie camp in 2003.
But yesterday, members of Sarnia's hockey community were devastated to learn the boy known as Smiley -- the boy they had grown to admire -- was killed in a car crash Sunday.
"This is like the cruelest possible plot twist in a movie," said Paul BURGESS, leader of a weekly goalie clinic who shared laughs with Jalen on the ice Saturday.
"You're waiting for the beautiful ending to happen and, all of a sudden, something totally unexpected ruins everything," BURGESS said.
Jalen, who lived in Watford with his family, was one of three area children killed in crashes Sunday.
About 9: 30 a.m., two young sisters, Eva, 4, and Mary FROESE, 9, died on the way to church after a van driven by their mother went out of control on a steep hill near Port Burwell.
The girls' mother, Sara FROESE, three teenage sisters and a male relative suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said yesterday.
"It's so sad. It's just a freak, sad thing," said Elgin Ontario Provincial Police Const. Jennifer WILKS.
In Lambton County, Jalen's father, David, remained in hospital yesterday with injuries suffered in the crash that killed his son.
The vehicle carrying them collided with another on Petrolia Line around 7: 45 p.m. Sunday. A woman and her six-year-old son from the other vehicle were treated in hospital.
Jalen, sidelined for a year by cancer treatments, had been back to hockey for several months, first at the summer goalie camp, then playing peewee in Watford and attending BURGESS's clinics at the Sarnia Sports and Entertainment Centre.
Everything was going just as Jalen planned, BURGESS said.
"After he found out he had cancer (in August 2003), he told me, 'I'm going to beat cancer because I'm going to play in the National Hockey League someday,' BURGESS said.
"And when he first came back, his skating was suffering because the tumour had affected his right leg. But by Saturday morning, I had put him with the best skaters -- that's how far he had come.
Sarnia Sting goalie coach Larry LUCAS met Jalen at the 2003 goalie camp, where the young boy learned he had a rare form of cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma.
"Everybody is in utter shock," LUCAS said yesterday. "To see him beat cancer and then get a phone call at 7: 30 (a.m.) saying he got killed... I'm really struggling with this."
Jalen was considered a local success story after his rough battle with the brutal cancer that causes tumours to attack muscle cells. The cancer strikes about 60 children around the world each year.
In November 2003, while Jalen was in radiation therapy, the Sting put on a benefit hockey game before a packed arena, raising $25,000 for his family.
London Knights assistant coach Jeff PERRY, then with the Sting, helped organize the game between the Ontario Hockey League team and National Hockey League players.
Jalen dropped the puck.
Yesterday, a "devastated and numb" PERRY recalled the day.
"It was great," he said. "The highlight was Jalen sitting beside me in the dressing room... he looked over at me and said he didn't want the day to end."
Students and staff at Brooke Central school in Alvinston were grieving Jalen's death yesterday.
Principal Ann LARSEN said she couldn't comment personally, but read from a news release.
"Jalen... was always willing to share and express his humour and good sportsmanship with others," the release said.
"His recent success in overcoming cancer was wellknown in the community and his determination to overcome adversity was an inspiration."

Black bear mauls doctor to death
Canadian Press
Missinaibi Lake Provincial Park -- Police and wildlife officials were hunting a wounded black bear yesterday after a woman was mauled to death and her husband hurt as he tried to stop the animal dragging his wife into northern Ontario bush.
Campers have been ordered out of the back country of Missinaibi Lake Provincial Park, about 80 kilometres north of Chapleau, as conservation officers equipped with a helicopter and a dog team scour the area.
Natural Resources officials said Marc JORDAN of Cambridge was armed with only a Swiss Army knife as he fought to keep the predatory animal from dragging his fatally mauled wife, Jacqueline PERRY, into the brush.
"He fought back as hard as he could with the weapon he had at hand," Jolanta KOWALSKI of the Ministry of Natural Resources said. "But the bear was relentless in wanting to take her into the bush."
JORDAN, 30, suffered cuts while slashing the bear at least five times, police said. The computer specialist was flown to a Sudbury hospital, where he was expected to require surgery. He was listed in serious but stable condition.
PERRY, 30, was a family doctor at a Cambridge hospital. Staff at Grandview Medical Centre were devastated on hearing of Tuesday's attack, said lead physician, Jeff MAIN.
JORDAN and PERRY were on a two-week holiday, camping and kayaking alone at a remote campsite when a black bear hunting for food attacked, said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Karen FARAND/PHARAND.
In the frantic attempt to save his wife, the injured JORDAN carried her to their kayak and began to paddle to the nearest campsite, FARAND/PHARAND said.
He yelled for help and a 54-year-old man and his 30-year-old son from Pennsylvania, camping at a site, heard him.
JORDAN put his wife into their boat, which carried them all off in search of help.
About a kilometre away, they spotted and flagged down another boat, which carried a doctor from North Carolina and an off-duty police officer.
The doctor tried to treat PERRY while the boat continued to the park's main office, about 10 kilometres away. But by then, PERRY had died.
"I've lived here all my life and this is a first for me," said FARAND/PHARAND.
"I can't even imagine what (PERRY and JORDAN) went through."
FARAND/PHARAND said the area is home to many black bears and has had more than its usual share of bear sightings this year because it hasn't been a good season for blueberries.
Keith SCOTT, a bear expert with the Ministry of Natural Resources, said such attacks are "very rare."
"There's only been four fatalities in Ontario through black bears dating back to about 1978," he said.
"In this particular case, it's early in the investigation, but it appears to be a predatory-type bear. These bears have learned to and often prey on humans."
The attack is just the latest in what has been a busy season for bear attacks across Canada.
A Manitoba man fended off a black bear in early September, just one week after a black bear killed another man in the province.
There have also been four grizzly attacks in Alberta since June, including a fatal one on a female jogger near Canmore. A woman in British Columbia was also mauled in May.

Bob McADOREY, Broadcaster: 1935-2005
Deejay who helped determine what Toronto's youth listened to in the sixties went on to enjoy a 27-year run as a popular and irreverent figure on Global television
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, February 9, 2005 - Page S9
Toronto -- If you knew Peggy Sue, you knew Bob McADOREY. That's because, with his pile of curly hair and horn-rimmed glasses, the Toronto disc jockey was a ringer for Buddy Holly, the songwriter and singer from Texas whose song was a hit in 1959. The two men were born 10 months apart -- McADOREY in 1935, Holly in 1936 and actually met in the mid-1950s when Mr. McADOREY was a disc jockey in Guelph, Ontario, and the singer was on a tour of Canada.
"His job was to introduce Buddy Holly at a concert at Kitchener. When he went on stage, the crowd went wild, and Bob though 'Gee, I didn't know I was this popular,' " remembered his sister Pat RUSSELL. "Of course, they thought he was Buddy Holly."
For decades, Mr. McADOREY was the entertainment commentator on Global Television; he retired less than five years ago. But in an earlier era, he was a household name in Southern Ontario. In 1960, just a few months after Buddy Holly died in a plane crash in 1959, his look-alike joined Toronto's CHUM. Almost overnight, Bob McADOREY became the top disc jockey at CHUM, the No. 1 rock station in the country. He was astonished when the station paid him what he was asking for -- $7,200 a year (about $50,000 in today's money, according to the Bank of Canada's inflation calculator).
"Bob McADOREY, whose face is as well known in Toronto as Mayor Givens, has the most power to dictate what pop music Ontario teens listen to," wrote the Toronto Telegram in 1966.
Not only was he the on-air man in the key 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. slot, he was also the music director. He chose the records the other six disc jockeys played. He and the other disc jockeys decided on CHUM's Top 10, which sent kids to record stores to buy records with a big hole in the middle and a song on each side. They spun at 45 revolutions a minute and were called 45s.
"He alone commands what goes on the hit parade in Canada," wrote The Globe's Blake KIRBY in 1968. "Middle-aged squares who run record stores use the CHUM chart, the weekly list of what McADOREY is playing and plugging as a buying guide."
Along the way, he shared the footlights with such big-name visitors as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
The CHUM hit parade made records such as The Unicorn by the Irish Rovers. Mr. McADOREY, a sentimental Irish-Canadian, pushed the record, which sold 140,000 copies in Canada and a million in the United States. But he didn't like everything on the CHUM chart. It was a business, after all.
"We're playing records here which I just can't bear to listen to, but I wouldn't let that influence what goes on the air," Mr. McADOREY once told The Globe and Mail. His sister said that when he went home after work, he was so sick of rock 'n' roll that he put earphones on and listened to classical music.
Like many successful big-city disc jockeys, Mr. McADOREY also ran dances on the weekends -- events with such names as Bob McAdorey's Canadian Bandstand or Canadian Hopville. He and a couple of other disc jockeys owned a company called Teen Scene Ltd., which put on dances in towns all over Southern Ontario.
After a long spell on CHUM, Bob McADOREY either was too old -- he was well into his 30s -- or too tired, and so he suddenly found himself fired. Unlike the regular corporate world, where people resign, in radio they are just plain sacked. Disc jockeys almost wear it as a badge of honour.
"There are no hard feelings," he told an entertainment writer in 1972 after he had been sacked from CFTR following a stint at CFGM. "I was told that it was either the station's new music-and-contests format or me." Within days, he had rejoined radio station CFGM.
A few years later, he morphed into television. No one told him that radio types, from the hot side of the Marshall McLuhan equation, are not supposed to be able to make the switch to the cool world of television. He perched on his stool in 1973 and performed for about 27 years.
Bob McADOREY was born within earshot of the Niagara Falls. His father worked as a machinist on the railway and the whole family lived near both the tracks and the roundhouse at Niagara Falls, Ontario For the rest of his life, Mr. McADOREY maintained a love affair with trains and rode them at every opportunity.
He went to high school at Stamford Collegiate. An Irish Catholic, he was one of two non-Protestants in the class. The other was Barbara FRUM, later the host of The Journal and As It Happens on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The two would spend the religious class in another room, enjoying their time off.
In Grade 12, Mr. McADOREY started work at the local radio station, doing a program in the early morning before class. "One day, the station manager told me to go on air and do the play-by-play of a local baseball game," he told the Toronto Star in 2000. "I didn't know the players' names and I didn't know much about baseball, so I sat in the bleachers and interviewed the spectators and it seemed to work."
After that, he was hooked. For a time, he worked all over -- including radio station CJDC in remote Dawson's Creek, British Columbia Even then, he was fairly outrageous. " CJDC had access to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation feeds," he said in 2000. "But nobody monitored us, so we sold everything -- the one o'clock time signal to a jewellery store, the Queen's Christmas Message brought to you by Sammy's Bar and Grill."
But it was soon after he had moved to Guelph, Ontario, that things really began to happen and he hit the big time at the age of 24 by working for CHUM.
Though he may have been at the top of the pop game in the Toronto of the sixties, he also became a national figure at Global as it expanded from a base in Southern Ontario to become the country's third network. He never applied for a job in television, it was just chance.
Bill CUNNINGHAM, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation foreign correspondent brought in to run Global News, hired him after he saw him speak during a tour of the new television station. At the time, Mr. McADOREY was working for Alan SLAIGHT, a prescient broadcaster who had run CHUM, bought CFGM and was one of the early owners of Global. Mr. CUNNINGHAM's plan was to lighten up the newscast and hire a kind of humourist-commentator. Thus, Mr. McADOREY covered entertainment and did light pieces for the newscast, heading out with a cameraman to find what he could. Once, during an Air Canada strike, he drifted out to Toronto's Pearson International Airport and happened to find Terminal 2 entirely deserted. The scene made irresistible camera fodder. The pair had time to erect an impromptu bowling alley and roll a few balls before the party was broken up by patrolling policemen.
The show was an enduring success. It helped that Mr. McADOREY was good-looking, possessed a great voice and was totally unaffected and unpretentious. Behind the scenes, though, Global was in turmoil and not just financially.
The network kept trying to reinvent itself. One idea was to bring in an untried newsreader, Suzanne PERRY, who was one of Pierre TRUDEAU's press aides and whose son, Matthew PERRY, went on to fame in the sitcom Friends. Sadly, Ms. PERRY was put on air before she was ready and that experiment failed.
A short while afterward, the network tried something called News at Noon, with Bob McADOREY doing entertainment, Mike ANSCOMBE the sports, and John DAWE, business. The three of them joked, made fun of each other, and did and said things you weren't supposed to see on television. All of a sudden, they had a huge audience, unheard of at that time of day.
"We broke new ground with 300,000 viewers at noon," said business reporter John DAWE. " Then it expanded and we did the 5: 30 news as well. We worked together for 14 years."
As he matured, Mr. McADOREY lost his Buddy Holly looks. Instead, he was often mistaken for another famous person with glasses and a mass of curly hair -- Ken TAILOR/TAYLOR, the Canadian ambassador to Iran who sheltered American colleagues during the 1979-80 hostage crisis.
At Global, the news department kept trying new things and new people, though the on-air staff remained pretty much the same. One producer didn't like the jocular format. And Mr. McADOREY didn't like him. He rebelled by being provocative on air.
"It's Friday, and I didn't really feel much like working today. The boss is out of town so I took it easy this afternoon, stretching out in my office, reading and daydreaming," he began his part of the 6 p.m. newscast on April 8, 1983. It got him fired.
"Unprofessional and insulting to the viewers," read the note from his pompous producer. The viewers thought otherwise. Phone lines buzzed and letters landed on all the right desks. Two weeks later, the producer was fired and Bob McADOREY was rehired.
As host of Entertainment Desk from 1991 to 1997, he guided it through many lively segments. Among the most memorable was the appearance of comedienne Judy Tenuta. "[She] pretty well took over the show, which bothered some viewers but not me," he once said. "Her wild style made for bizarre television. Most of the interview was done with Judy sitting on my lap making semi-lewd comments."
For all that, he never did like producers. At the time of his retirement in July, 2000, Andrew RYAN of The Globe and Mail asked him what advice he would give to aspiring young entertainment journalists. "Producers are dorks, actors are jerks," Mr. McADOREY answered. "The only ones worth talking to are directors."
Having been asked to retire, he said he had no expectations of a gold watch. Rather, "how about a gold boot up the butt? Retirement was not my idea. I always thought I had a few more good years left."
Instead, he chose to retire quietly at his home in Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario His main hobby was reading and he was something of an authority on James Joyce. An Irish nationalist, he had a lifelong obsession with the great Dublin writer.
Robert Joseph McADOREY was born in Niagara Falls, Ontario, on July 24, 1935. He died on February 5 at St. Catharines, Ontario He was 70 and had suffered prolonged illness. He is survived by daughter Colleen, sister Pat and brother Terry. He was predeceased by his wife and by two of three children.

PERRY, Dr. Jacqueline Helen
As a result of a bear attack in Northern Ontario, it is with profound sadness the family announces the untimely death of their daughter, Jacqueline, on Tuesday, September 6, 2005, in her 31st year; beloved wife of Mark JORDAN; loving daughter of Ralph and Brenda PERRY; cherished sister of Joelle and her husband Jim DANIELS; special aunt of Megan and Rachel; daughter-in-law of Alan and Rosalind JORDAN. Jacqueline graduated from the Brantford Collegiate Institute in 1994 as an Ontario Scholar. As a recipient of a Canada Scholarship and a McMaster University entrance scholarship she enrolled in the four year Honours Science Program at McMaster. It was there where she first met the love of her life Mark JORDAN. She graduated with her Bachelor of Science - Biology degree (with distinction) in 1997 and entered the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine M.D. Program. Following her graduation as a Doctor of Medicine, Jacqueline and Mark were married amidst nature in the Haliburton Highlands September 2001. Her love for the medical profession prompted her to take an additional year of training to earn her certificate as a doctor in emergency medicine, in addition to family practice. Most recently, Jacqueline was conducting her family medicine profession at the Grandview Medical Centre in Cambridge, as well as performing emergency room physician duties at the Brantford General Hospital. Jacqueline's concern for humanity and her love of the outdoors will never be forgotten.

With her beloved Mark, Jacqueline pursued their passions for scouting, camping, kayaking, canoeing and mountain biking. Jacqueline tackled all her activities with boundless energy and focus, whether it was her studies, her career or her pastimes. Nothing short of doing her absolute best would satisfy her. Friends will be received at the Dennis Toll Funeral Home, 55 Charing Cross Street, Brantford on Monday 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. and on Tuesday from 10 to 11 a.m. Service in the chapel on Tuesday at 11 a.m. As expressions of sympathy, donations to Habitat for Humanity Brant would be greatly appreciated.

Cambridge doctor fatally mauled by bear
Husband tries to fend off animal with knife
Community mourns 'wonderful' physician
By Liz MONTEIRO and Brian CALDWELL, Torstar News Service, Kitchener-Waterloo Record
Cambridge -- Armed with only a Swiss Army knife, Cambridge resident Mark JORDAN fended off a predatory bear yesterday, but not before the animal fatally mauled his wife, Dr. Jacqueline PERRY.
"He fought back as hard as he could with the weapon he had at hand," Jolanta KOWALSKI of the Ministry of Natural Resources said yesterday.
"But the bear was relentless in wanting to take her into the bush."
The couple were on a two-week holiday in Missinaibi Lake Provincial Park, 80 kilometres north of Chapleau, Ontario
PERRY, 30, was a family physician at the Grandview Medical Centre on Hespeler Rd. in Cambridge, and JORDAN, 30, is a computer specialist. The couple married nearly four years ago and didn't have any children.
Staff at the medical centre were devastated yesterday, and patients were calling in disbelief, said the centre's lead physician, Dr. Jeff MAIN.
"Jacqueline represented vitality and youthfulness," he said. "It's like losing a child. She was the youngest partner here."
PERRY and JORDAN were alone at the remote campsite yesterday afternoon when a black bear hunting for food attacked, said Const. Karen FARAND/PHARAND of the Superior East Ontario Provincial Police detachment.
The bear went after PERRY, and JORDAN tried to distract it by screaming.
Then, as the animal dragged PERRY into the bush, JORDAN slashed it at least five times with the Swiss Army knife. The bear finally fled, and conservation officers were searching for it yesterday.
In the frantic attempt to save his wife, the injured JORDAN carried her to their kayak and began to paddle to the nearest campsite, FARAND/PHARAND said. He yelled for help and a 54-year-old father and his 30-year-old son from Pennsylvania, who were camping at a site, heard him and got into their pontoon boat.
JORDAN put his wife into the boat, which carried them all off in search of help. About a kilometre away, they spotted and flagged down another boat, which carried a doctor from North Carolina and an off-duty police officer.
The doctor tried to treat PERRY while the boat continued on to the park's main office, about 10 kilometres away.
PERRY died of her injuries. JORDAN was flown to St. Joseph's Hospital in Sudbury, where he was in stable but serious condition yesterday.
This is just the fourth time since 1978 that a black bear has stalked and killed anyone in Ontario. The most recent attack took place in 1992.
"It's very rare and we would prefer to keep it that way," KOWALSKI said. "This is just one of those horrible aberrations."
FARAND/PHARAND said the father and son who came to the aid of the couple had been frightened by the bear about 45 minutes before the fatal attack.
The men were hiking when the bear approached them. They shouted and made as much noise before the bear scampered, FARAND/PHARAND said.
The pair returned to their campsite and were packing up when they heard JORDAN yell for help.
JORDAN's mother, Rosalind JORDAN of Mississauga, who is at her son's bedside in Sudbury, said her daughter-in-law was vivacious, caring and compassionate with her patients and her family.
"She was a bright spark, a bright star," she said. "She knew what she wanted. This just seems so wrong."
PERRY graduated from the University of Toronto's faculty of medicine in 2001. She started at Grandview last November and became a partner at the centre in July. She also worked part time as an emergency room doctor at Brantford General Hospital.
"The community has lost a wonderful physician, and staff and doctors have lost a great colleague and friend," said Jeff POLL, Grandview's administrator.

PERRY, Dr. Jacqueline Helen
As a result of a bear attack in Northern Ontario, it is with profound sadness the family announces the untimely death of their daughter, Jacqueline, on Tuesday, September 6, 2005, in her 31st year. Beloved wife of Mark JORDAN; loving daughter of Ralph and Brenda PERRY; cherished sister of Joelle and her husband Jim DANIELS; special aunt of Megan and Rachel; daughter-in-law of Alan and Rosalind JORDAN. Jacqueline graduated from the Brantford Collegiate Institute in 1994 as an Ontario Scholar. As a recipient of a Canada Scholarship and a McMaster University entrance scholarship she enrolled in the four year Honours Science Program at McMaster. It was there where she first met the love of her life Mark JORDAN. She graduated with her Bachelor of Science - Biology degree (with distinction) in 1997 and entered the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine M.D. Program. Following her graduation as a Doctor of Medicine, Jacqueline and Mark were married amidst nature in the Haliburton Highlands September 2001. Her love for the medical profession prompted her to take an additional year of training to earn her certificate as a doctor in emergency medicine, in addition to family practice. Most recently, Jacqueline was conducting her family medicine profession at the Grandview Medical Centre in Cambridge, as well as performing emergency room physician duties at the Brantford General Hospital. Jacqueline's concern for humanity and her love of the outdoors will never be forgotten. Her spare moments were occupied with many acts of volunteerism, particularly with Habitat for Humanity, which included a house build project in Costa Rica for underprivileged families. With her beloved Mark, Jacqueline pursued their passions for scouting, camping, kayaking, canoeing and mountain biking. Jacqueline tackled all her activities with boundless energy and focus, whether it was her studies, her career or her pastimes. Nothing short of doing her absolute best would satisfy her. Friends will be received at the Dennis Toll Funeral Home, 55 Charing Cross Street, Brantford on Monday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. and on Tuesday from 10 to 11 a.m. Service in the chapel on Tuesday at 11 a.m. As expressions of sympathy, donations to Habitat for Humanity Brant would be greatly appreciated. In accordance with Jacqueline's wishes, cremation will follow with her ashes to be scattered in a pretty place. www.dennistoll.ca

Mauled Doctor recalled as 'role model'
Canadian Press
Brantford -- A doctor mauled to death by a black bear was remembered yesterday at a funeral service as a free spirit who was always willing to help others.
Jacqueline PERRY, 30, who was killed last week after she and her husband, Marc JORDAN, 30, were attacked at a remote campsite in Missinaibi Lake Provincial Park, about 80 kilometres north of Chapleau.
"I got four years (with her,) I wish I got 40," JORDAN told about 300 mourners packed into Central Baptist Church. "She was so easy to love."
JORDAN was injured when he tried to save his wife by slashing the bear with a Swiss Army knife, but he was well enough to attend yesterday's service.
Family, Friends and colleagues remembered PERRY, an emergency room physician at Brantford General Hospital and a Cambridge family doctor, as having a passion for life and the ability to inspire others.
PERRY's father, Ralph PERRY, recounted his daughter's love of books and sports, and her desire to live life to the fullest.
"Whatever Jacqueline took on in life... she never gave up on doing her very best," he said. "Sometimes we banter around the term 'role model.' Jacqueline really was one. Her warm and caring nature was like a magnet."
Rick WOODCOCK, Chief Executive Officer of the Brant Community Healthcare System, said PERRY "saved lives" and "brought hope to others."
The bear believed to have attacked PERRY and JORDAN has since been killed by Ministry of Natural Resources officials.
