Driver rescued from watery ditch
By Joe MATYAS, Free Press Reporter, Tues., February 7, 2006
A Woodstock woman trapped in her overturned car as it filled with water escaped drowning yesterday when one of her rescuers held her head out of the water as three others worked to free her.
"They did an awesome job," London police Const. Ian NORMAN said of the four men who stopped to help the unidentified woman. "It was lousy cold out here and the road was bad.
"They reacted quickly and got her out of a dangerous situation," he said at the site of the rescue near London International Airport.
The crash happened two days after a 32-year-old Keswick woman and her four-year-old son died when their sport utility vehicle sank in a canal north of Toronto. (A story on that incident is on Page B10.)
The Woodstock woman was driving a car north on Crumlin Sideroad south of Oxford Street about 9: 20 a.m. when the vehicle slid off the snowy road and rolled into a water-filled drainage ditch.
She was trapped -- hanging upside-down by a seatbelt she couldn't release -- as the car rapidly filled with water.
Fanshawe College accounting students Shaun MacDONALD and Gary ARMSTRONG saw the woman's car fishtail, slide and flip.
"It was kind of surreal to watch because it seemed to be in slow motion," ARMSTRONG said.
He and MacDONALD stopped to help.
So did two other unidentified men in another vehicle, said MacDONALD, who jumped into the frigid water with them while ARMSTRONG called emergency services on his cellphone.
"One of the guys was holding her head up while we worked to get her out," MacDONALD said.
"I opened up the driver's door and the inside of the car was half-submerged in the water. She was panicky at first, but calmed down."
MacDONALD said the men also were unable to release the seatbelt and had to cut it with scissors fetched from one of the vehicles.
"We pulled her out of the car and took her to our van to warm her up," he said.
The woman was worried about a laptop computer in the water, MacDONALD said.
"She was fine, but a little shaken up. She was worried about an essay that's due."
Paramedics in an ambulance whisked her away for treatment.
Yesterday's high winds, blowing snow and sloppy roads produced a rash of problems in Southwestern Ontario.
Driving conditions were so bad in some areas that sections of highways 4, 6, 8, 9, 21 and 23 in Bruce, Huron, Perth and Wellington counties were closed.
Thousands of students in Middlesex, Huron and Perth counties stayed home yesterday as school buses and elementary and secondary schools sat idle.
About 2,500 customers in Lambton and Huron counties were without power at times yesterday because of the weather conditions, Hydro One reported.

'Real team player' lived dream as officer
Ken DEANE is recalled as a 'top, top cop,' despite his public persona.
By Joe MATYAS and April KEMICK, Free Press Reporters, Mon., February Long before Ken DEANE became infamous as the Ontario Provincial Police sniper who fatally shot Dudley GEORGE at Ipperwash, he was a London teen who wanted to be a police officer.
He was a bright student and energetic athlete who emerged as a leader in his teens, high school friend Tim HUFF once told The Free Press.
DEANE was in Grade 12 at South secondary school when he decided he wanted to get into law enforcement, said HUFF, adding he pounded a beat for the London police force in the 1980s after taking law and security at Fanshawe College.
A few years later, DEANE applied to the Ontario Provincial Police tactics and rescue unit and was accepted, eventually becoming part of an explosives disposal team.
But for people like HUFF, DEANE was a guy who remained in touch with old Friends.
There were annual weekends with the guys in cottage country, where DEANE would be a highlight with stories about police work.
Family and Friends will miss him deeply, brother-in-law Grant TEEPLE of Aylmer said yesterday in reaction to DEANE's sudden death in a highway crash on Saturday.
DEANE's death was a shock, he said, adding family and Friends had a chance to enjoy his company at a gathering "up north" a few days ago.
DEANE wasn't the guy portrayed in the media, TEEPLE said. TEEPLE wouldn't say what DEANE did after he left the Ontario Provincial Police.
DEANE's public persona is connected to the shooting of GEORGE at Ipperwash on September 6, 1995, his subsequent court conviction for criminal negligence causing death in 1997 and his dismissal from the Ontario Provincial Police for discreditable police conduct in 2002.
London lawyer Norm PEEL, who knew DEANE for years before representing him in his criminal trial, said yesterday he was a model police officer whose reputation was wrongly tarnished.
"I still hold my strongest view that he was just a top, top cop," PEEL said. "I have nothing but absolute respect for him. Always will."
DEANE had a reputation among other officers for being a "real team player," PEEL said. "His whole story of his life was about helping people. He had a model background."
During his trial, DEANE testified that he saw muzzle flashes the light of gunfire -- come from some bushes during a confusing skirmish.
He said he shot GEORGE after he stepped out of the bushes with a gun.
In convicting DEANE on April 27, 1997, Judge Hugh FRASER rejected his testimony and those of other police officers as fabricated.
The verdict surprised members of the GEORGE family.
But their feelings that justice had been done were dashed on July 3, 1997, when FRASER gave DEANE a conditional sentence of two years less a day with 180 hours of community service.
Cries of "murderer, murderer" filled the courtroom after the sentence as members of the GEORGE family wept.

Local history his passion
By Joe MATYAS, Free Press Reporter, Sun., March 12, 2006
Raymond CRINKLAW travelled the world but it was his Westminster Township roots that became his passion.
And that's why many Lambeth-area residents paid their respects to him after he died in late February at the age of 91 in a London nursing home.
"It was his prodding that got us going," said Marian WELDON of the founding of the Westminster Township Historical Society in "We're really missing him now," said WELDON, secretary of the society. CRINKLAW was the society's founding president.
"We're compiling a history of Delaware and Westminster townships now and Raymond's knowledge and memories would be invaluable."
His contribution to local history is already huge because of the research he left to posterity, including documents donated to the society by his daughter, Janet GIBSON, who lives in Sutton, said WELDON.
The heritage room at the Lambeth public library is full of materials collected, organized and written by CRINKLAW, said Doris MONTGOMERY of Delaware, known as Doris BOND during her long career as a Lambeth librarian.
"Raymond was a tireless researcher and a familiar figure at our library."
CRINKLAW painstakingly poked through newspaper archives, municipal and church records and even cemeteries, she said.
He could be wilful, but also committed his own resources to projects, said local historian Fred ARMSTRONG.
"He subsidized some publications out of his own pocket and kept scrapbooks of interesting materials."
His research blossomed into the writing of newspaper articles, essays and publications on the early days of Byron, Talbot Road, Glanworth and Westminster Township.
To complement the written word, he commissioned artist George Rickard to render pen and ink drawings.
CRINKLAW's legacy included service to the community as reeve and deputy reeve of the township, as a Middlesex County councillor and member of the Lower Thames River Conservation Authority, said David MURRAY, former Westminster mayor.
He was also active in the Lambeth Optimist Club and Masons, said MURRAY.
"He had an endless curiosity about all aspects of Masonic history, as well as the township where he was born and raised."

An inspiration to many
Sister Katherine McKEOUGH was a warm, open and supportive leader.
By Joe MATYAS, Free Press Reporter, Sun., April 30, 2006
Only God knows how many people Sister Katherine McKEOUGH influenced and inspired.
But there's no question the late former leader of the Sisters of Saint_Joseph did both, said a nun who knew her for 35 years.
"She was a mentor type of person who led by example," said Sister Margot RITCHIE. " Her greatest gift was her ability to accept everyone as an individual with no sense of judgment."
McKEOUGH, general superior of the religious order from 1979 to 1987, died peacefully at Mount Saint_Joseph in London on April 13. She was 85.
She was a warm, open and supportive leader at the convent during a period of change that occurred in Catholic communities after the Second Vatican Council, said RITCHIE, who paid tribute to McKEOUGH at a wake.
"She was very much what we needed, someone with a curious, inquisitive mind who supported people who were wrestling with new ideas and wanted to try new things."
McKEOUGH had strong opinions and enjoyed friendly debates with people with different views, said RITCHIE.
"She didn't demand that you think like her or do it her way. She had an inquiring mind and was not afraid to address any question."
It was clear to all that Sister Katherine loved God, RITCHIE said. "It wasn't a disembodied kind of piety. She lived life to the fullest in relationships with people. She helped people believe in their own goodness."
Retired social worker Marg PHIPPS, who worked with McKEOUGH in the psychiatric department of Saint_Joseph's Hospital in the 1950s and '60s in London, said she was "a therapist to the staff as well as the patients. She had a knack for getting the best out of both."
head nurse in the department, McKEOUGH had "an exceptional ability to listen" and great skill working with people with emotional problems, said PHIPPS.
After McKEOUGH's tenure as general superior, she moved out of the motherhouse and into a home on Queens Avenue with formerly homeless women, offering them Friendship and encouragement, said RITCHIE.

Administrator had old-school style
Dorothy DOAN ran Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital with a firm but gentle hand.
By Joe MATYAS, Free Press Reporter, Sun., July 2, 2006
For a quarter of a century, Dorothy DOAN held a lofty position as the top hospital administrator in Strathroy.
She was also the "mother hen" of patients and staff.
DOAN started with the title of superintendent in 1956 and retired as executive director in 1981.
Under her supervision, a new hospital was built in 1962 and two floors added in 1973 and 1974.
DOAN died June 10 at the age of 90 in Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital, leaving a legacy difficult to match, a former co-worker said.
DOAN fought bureaucracy and government cutbacks, Trevor NESBITT said.
She also raised the bar at the hospital by introducing accreditation standards.
"She had a style of administration that doesn't exist anymore," said NESBITT, who worked with DOAN for 17 years.
"It was different than the cool, efficient professionalism of today."
DOAN was a great administrator in an old-school way, he said.
"I would describe her as a mother hen. She made sure she knew everyone and she cared about them -- staff and patients."
DOAN was known for visiting every patient almost every day, NESBITT said.
"I guess it was a case of once a nurse, always a nurse."
DOAN trained at the Strathroy Hospital School of Nursing, graduating in 1935. She went overseas with the Canadian Military Nurses Association in 1942, serving in South Africa, Egypt and Italy.
After returning to Canada, she studied at the University of Toronto and worked at Toronto Western Hospital.
Her career at Strathroy hospital made her one of the first Canadian women to become a fellow of the American College of Hospital Administrators.
She was also a charter member of the Canadian College of Hospital Administrators.
DOAN's management style was collegial, NESBITT said.
"She never uttered a cross word. She tried to include everyone in decisions and she encouraged people to take responsibility and advance their careers."
DOAN also shared success.
"She didn't hog the limelight, she always gave credit to others and acknowledged their contributions," NESBITT said.
"Most people loved working with her."
There are countless stories of DOAN going the extra mile for a patient or staff member.
One involved a doctor who was away during a snowstorm. His wife and two young children were snowed in with backed-up plumbing.
Somehow DOAN found out about it and 10 minutes later, two plumbers in snowmobile suits knocked at the door of the doctor's home.
"Dorothy seemed to sense when people needed help and stepped in," NESBITT said.
She opened the hospital to stranded motorists during a blizzard in 1972, feeding and accommodating about 200 people and staff who couldn't get home.

Woman dies after choking at fair
Janet RUDD, 32, was taking part in a marshmallow eating- and-talking contest.
By Joe MATYAS, Free Press Reporter, Fri., September 15, 2006
A disaster waiting to happen
A 32-year-old woman who collapsed after a marshmallow eating-and-talking contest at the Western Fair this week has died in a London hospital, a spokesperson said yesterday.
The woman was identified as Janet RUDD of 68 Grand Ave. by two sources contacted by The Free Press yesterday.
One said RUDD was working at a horticultural booth at the fair with her twin sister, Jennifer, on Tuesday night.
"She took a break and never came back," said the source.
"Janet was a sweet, shy person and they would have had to talk her into the event. I'm sure she would have been a reluctant participant. It's not something you would expect her to do."
A friend said last night the woman's family, who declined comment, wanted to be left alone to mourn in private.
RUDD collapsed offstage Tuesday night just after the daily Chubby Bunny contest.
The event, since cancelled by the fair, requires contestants to pop one marshmallow at a time into their mouths and say "chubby bunny" to amuse spectators until they can't say it anymore.
Saint_John's Ambulance staff came to RUDD's aid with a defibrillator and suction equipment, but were unable to remove the blockage in the unconscious woman's throat.
Thames Valley Emergency Medical Services paramedics took her to Victoria Hospital, where she had remained in critical condition.
A spokesperson for London Health Sciences Centre yesterday said the woman had died.
Manager Dave TAILOR/TAYLOR said Western Fair was informed of the death yesterday.
"We called the family to see how the young woman was and we were told she died last night (Wednesday)," he said.
"The family told us they want to deal with this as a private family matter and Western Fair is going to respect that. Our staff is very upset this happened at the fair."
Fair officials cancelled all remaining Chubby Bunny events after RUDD was taken to hospital.
One source said the twin sisters lived with their parents in the Grand Avenue home in London where they grew up.
"They were very close. They shared a room. I can't imagine how hard this is going to be for Jennifer."
The source said the twins lost a close friend about three months ago who choked to death.
"It's an irony, a tragedy."
She said they were both members of a Bible study group and "very religious, very good women." They attended South secondary school together, she said.
The other source said the twins were active in the Conservative party.
"They were thrilled to meet Stephen Harper (now prime minister) during the federal election campaign early this year," she said.

Canada's first news anchor had flawless, direct delivery
Larry HENDERSON died Monday in London's Parkwood Hospital at By Joe MATYAS, Free Press Reporter, Wed., November 29, 2006
Larry HENDERSON was the first regular news reader on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television's The National News. (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation file photo)
The man who pioneered the role of television news anchor in Canada died Monday in London at the age of 89.
Larry HENDERSON was "the first real anchor and nationally known television news personality" in the country, Michael NOLAN said yesterday.
"He helped make the nightly news broadcast a national institution," said NOLAN, a former news anchor and professor of journalism at the University of Western Ontario.
"He embedded the notion of the anchor in people's minds at a time when Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Television was expanding across the nation."
Born and raised in Montreal, HENDERSON studied music at McGill University and spent some time in England as a Shakespearean actor, sharing the stage with such notables as Alec Guinness.
In a 1990 interview with The Free Press, he told NOLAN "those years were useful to me because I learned there the hard rules of presenting words, ideas and yourself to the public."
HENDERSON joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio staff in 1940. He later enlisted in the Canadian Army, serving in North Africa and Italy during the Second World War.
Following the war, he returned to radio broadcasting in Toronto where he hosted the Headliners show on CFRB.
In 1950, HENDERSON became the first Canadian broadcaster to cover the Korean War. He spent three years in Europe, interviewing world figures for Headliners, and in 1954, he became Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television's National News reader.
Canadian television was barely two years old then, said NOLAN, adding there was "a hazy period" before HENDERSON became the anchor when various announcers delivered short reports.
"He had a knack for it. He could look at copy and memorize it well enough to deliver the news flawlessly while looking directly into the camera."
The fact he hardly ever made mistakes was amazing, considering there were no teleprompters, said NOLAN.
HENDERSON had an authoritative air and conveyed credibility largely because he was a newsman with field experience, NOLAN said.
"He wasn't just someone who read the news in a studio."
HENDERSON was the face of the National News until 1959. After that he worked for CFI radio, CHCH television and CTV National News.
During the 1970s, HENDERSON helped Tanzania organize its national broadcasting system. In 1974, he became editor of the Catholic Register. He was also managing editor of Challenge, a Catholic monthly, before retiring in 2002.
HENDERSON had been living quietly in London since 1988. He died in his sleep at Parkwood Hospital, said his son Graham, a Toronto lawyer.
HENDERSON's other son, Ross, a Strathroy resident, is also a lawyer.
A funeral mass for him is planned for tomorrow in Toronto.
