Toddler drowns in ditch
The boy, 3, fell into the rain-filled channel after wandering onto a farm construction site.
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Reporter
Innerkip -- A three-year-old boy drowned Thursday night after he fell into a water-filled ditch on a farm near here.
Isaac FRIESSEN- GIESBRECHT was flown to the Children's Hospital of Western Ontario in London, where he died.
Oxford Community police, paramedics and Bright volunteer firefighters were called to the VAN BOEKEL pig farm on Township Road 9 in Blandford-Blenheim about 7: 17 p.m. Thursday.
They found the little boy unconscious in a ditch filled with rainwater from a downpour earlier that day.
FRIESSEN- GIESBRECHT had wandered onto a construction site on the farm, police said.
One neighbour, Samantha, who wouldn't give her last name, said she heard sirens and saw fire trucks on the rural road Thursday after a heavy rain.
"It was kind of scary because I didn't know where they were going," she said.
"I thought somebody had been hurt on the farm. I never thought it would be a little boy that drowned. That's terrible."
The family had lots of children, but kept to themselves, neighbours said.
No one answered the door at the modest house yesterday.
A tire swing, tricycle and other children's toys were scattered in the front lawn.
Construction equipment was on land behind the house.
"It's shocking, especially being a little one," said neighbour Janice BRIETENSTEIN.
"You just want to weep for the people. I can't imagine what they're going through."
The family has rented the house from Eric VAN BOEKEL for about two years, neighbours said.
VAN BOEKEL declined comment when reached yesterday.
Police are still probing the boy's death and Ontario's Labour Ministry also is investigating because the area involved a construction site.

BOELENS, Georgia (PERGANDIS)
(b. 11 August 1917, in Montreal)
On 22 September 2005, at the age of 88, in Toronto. Beloved daughter of the late Sophia (PALEOLOGOU) and John PERGANDIS and cherished sister and sister-in-law of Maria and the late Dean SPERDAKOS adored and adoring aunt and aunt-in-law to Paula SPERDAKOS and Jim MONTGOMERY and to Sophia SPERDAKOS and Robert CLARK, and doting great-aunt to Jordan and Matthew. For Paula and Sophia, "Georgie" was our own Auntie Mame, introducing us to the glories of her favourite city in the world, New York, as each of us turned 10 years old, and teaching us so much about the journey of life. We will all remember Georgie for her great flamboyance and flare, her passionate love of the sun and the sea, her respect and affection for all the earth's creatures, her intelligence and humanism and life-long seeking, her generosity, her fluency in three languages, her consummate skill in sewing, crocheting and knitting, and most of all for the depth and breadth and constancy of her love for her family.
When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet
And if thou wilt, remember,
And if thou wilt, forget.
I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not feel the rain
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on, as if in pain:
And dreaming through the twilight
That doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,
And haply may forget.
(Christina Rossetti)

Bill BOETTGER, Bowler 1941-2005
Kitchener's 'Captain Canada' commanded both neat-and-tidy lawn bowling and its noisy, indoor five-pin cousin
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, April 9, 2005, Page S9
Bill BOETTGER was adept at bowling his ball, whether working the manicured lawns of a placid club or the waxed wood of a cacophonous alley.
His mastery of both games displayed a skill rare in the sport, where the raucous, blue-collar culture of the indoor game stands in noisy contrast to the serene, white-clad deportment of its outdoor cousin.
By size, if not temperament, Mr. BOETTGER seemed better suited to the game of Ralph Kramden, Fred Flintstone and the Big Lebowski. Yet it was on the greens of the British Commonwealth that he won his greatest acclaim, as well as the nickname Captain Canada.
English fans saw Mr. BOETTGER paired with Ronnie Jones and dubbed them "Little and Large," after the famous comedy duo. The bowling pair won a silver medal at the 1986 Commonwealth Games at Edinburgh, Scotland.
In 1991, Mr. BOETTGER won three gold medals -- in pairs, fours and as top tournament bowler -- at the 13-nation Pacific lawn bowling championship in Hong Kong. The three golds were the first won by Canada at an international bowls championship.
By 1997, he was coach of Canada's national team, a position he would hold for four years. He spent 18 consecutive years as a member of the team.
William Earl BOETTGER was a native of Kitchener, Ontario Introduced to five-pin bowling by his parents, he got a job as a pinboy at Waterloo Lanes. Among his fellow pinsetters was Moe NORMAN, the eccentric golfing genius.
In his final game in the pinboys' league, Mr. BOETTGER rolled a perfect game of 450 points. In 1974, at Regina, he won the Canadian masters singles title.
He wrote a curriculum for coaching and teaching five-pin bowling that is still in use today. He also coached Kitchener's famed blind lawn bowler, Vivian BERKELEY, when he took over duties from her regular coach Don MAYNE. Over the years, Ms. BERKELEY has won national titles, a silver medal at the 1996 Paralympics in Atlanta and a bronze at Commonwealth Games in Manchester three years ago.
In 1997, Mr. BOETTGER was inducted into the Ontario 5-Pin Bowling Hall of Fame as a builder. That same year, he retired as a mathematics teacher after 31 years at Eastwood Collegiate in his hometown.
William Earl BOETTGER was born in Kitchener, Ontario, on October 26, 1941. He died at Grand River Hospital in Kitchener on January 22. He was 63.
