Body of canoeist found
Bayfield-area man vanished afterleaving Friends for night-time paddle
By Jonathon JACKSON, Wednesday, July 04, 2007
The body of a Bayfield-area man who went missing while paddling on the Saugeen River was found Tuesday.
Byron HENDERSON vanished while padding along a stretch of the Saugeen just south of Paisley.
Const. Jeff MERCEY, the South Bruce Ontario Provincial Police detachment's media relations and community service officer, said Tuesday HENDERSON was with two companions on the weekend.
They canoed together on Sunday and regrouped that evening at a river access point on Concession 10 of the former Brant Township. HENDERSON, described as an experienced canoeist, said he was going to paddle downstream that night to Paisley, where he would meet up with his Friends after they made the same journey on Monday.
As the crow flies, it's about 12.5 kilometres but, because the river winds so much, it's difficult to know the exact distance on the water. A brochure from Thorncrest Outfitters suggests a time of seven hours to reach Paisley from Brant Concession 10, although store employee Rob BYRNE said the distance can probably be covered in as few as four hours by an experienced paddler.
HENDERSON's Friends set out Monday morning as planned and made it to Paisley, but saw no sign of HENDERSON in town or along the way. They became worried and contacted the police after trying on their own to locate him.
Members of the Ontario Provincial Police's Emergency Response Team, an underwater search team, a canine unit and a police helicopter were all used in a search for HENDERSON on Tuesday. Several police cruisers came and went from a command post established at the South Bruce Ontario Provincial Police's satellite office next to the junction of the Saugeen and Teeswater rivers in the heart of Paisley.
MERCEY said a canoe and "some personal belongings" were spotted Monday by a farmer in the water between Brant Concession 10 and Paisley.
He said HENDERSON's body was found in the Saugeen River between Conc. 10 and 12 of Brant Township by the dive team about 6: 30 p.m.
Police have no reason to suspect foul play, MERCEY said, but an autopsy was scheduled to be conducted today in London, Ontario
Anxious family members spent Tuesday waiting for word sitting on a park bench in Paisley, staring out at the water and waiting for news.
"We offered a spot inside (the office) for them, but they want to be outside," said MERCEY.
He said the family specifically told him they would not speak to the media.

She was a Toronto softball slugger who starred in a league of her own
Gifted infielder, endowed with glamour and a smattering of experience on stage, became a key player for the Chicago Chicks of the National Girls Baseball League
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Victoria -- Peggy WILSON's hitting prowess made her a terror on Toronto's softball sandlots. At age 16, the slugging infielder helped lead her team to the finals of the 1945 world softball championships and went on to play professionally in the United States.
At a time when women had few opportunities to earn pay for their athletic skills, she won a roster spot as two competing leagues battled for supremacy in the American Midwest. As it turned out, television killed attendance at minor-league sporting events and those few jobs for professional female athletes all but disappeared.
The infielder brought an athletic grace and a certain glamour to the diamond. Her flowing hair, full lips and deep-set eyes could just as easily have won her a spot on a Hollywood backlot as on a softball sandlot.
Though fortunate to be an athletic pioneer, she would suffer more than her share of heartbreak and tragedy.
Margaret Merla Eleanor WILSON was born in Toronto to a father who was an engineer and a sergeant in the Grenadier Guards. Francis Cyril (Frank) WILSON married Dorothy (Dolly) Catherine WATSON five days before Valentine's Day in 1928. Their daughter arrived 11 months later. Mr. WILSON led an apparent life of propriety for many years before suddenly abandoning the family. In seeking financial support, his wife took him to court, where, to her surprise, he was exposed as a bigamist. Their marriage licence was entered into proceedings under the tag "Exhibit A."
Dolly WILSON was the oldest of 10 children. The boys worked for the family business, Watson Movers, out of the family home at 281 Rhodes Ave., while the girls worked on stage, though the traditional theatre was not their milieu. The Watson Sisters crisscrossed the continent in the 1920s with such travelling revues as Plunkett Productions. Dolly was also an acclaimed snake dancer. By age 10, Peggy WILSON was accompanying her mother onstage as a bongo player.
The public performances perhaps made it easier for her to handle the pressure of playing softball as a young girl. Her photograph appeared in a Toronto newspaper in 1941, when the 12-year-old led her team to a championship in a league for under-18 girls. She played for Areadians of the Danforth league and Malverns of the Beaches league, often at the old Sunnyside stadium near Broadview Avenue and Queen Street. She was a star by age 14 playing against older women as a second baseman for the Staffords.
While mature on the diamond, she possessed an innocence away from it. Globe sports columnist Bobbie ROSENFELD recounted an incident when riding a bus back from a game at Malton, Ontario, when young Peggy engaged a gentleman beside her in conversation.
"Are you interested in softball?" the girl asked.
"Oh, yes, quite a bit," he replied.
"Do you go to Sunnyside often?"
"Yes, every night."
"Why? Are you connected with any team?"
"Yes, in a way," Ed BEWLEY said. "I happen to be the league president."
In the spring of 1945, she joined the Crofton Athletic Club. The powerhouse team boasted Alma WILSON (no relation) as an ace pitcher known as the Crofton Comet. The team dominated all comers in the Olympic girls' softball league, an amateur circuit based in Toronto.
In one game at Sunnyside, the Croftons embarrassed the Fuels 22-5, with Alma WILSON getting the win and Peggy WILSON banging a double and a home run.
After disposing of local challengers, the Croftons travelled to Cleveland for a world championship tournament. They downed the dogged Utah Lassies 5-2, slipped past the Gastonia (N.C.) Rex Hanovers 1-0 and then shut out a team from Stamford, Connecticut., 2-0. The victories earned a berth in the finals against a favoured New Orleans team.
The Jax Maids were led by Nina (Tiger) Korgan, a Nebraskan known as the Babe Didrikson of softball. She surrendered just two singles to the Toronto batters, as the Maids won 5-0 to claim their third world title in four years.
The Croftons' exposure in the United States caught the attention of scouts from competing leagues of women baseball players. A bird dog from the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League - a circuit portrayed in the 1992 Hollywood movie A League of Their Own - came to Toronto armed with professional contracts. Instead, Peggy WILSON and the pitcher Alma WILSON ended up signing with the Chicago Chicks of the rival National Girls Baseball League.
The Chicago-based loop maintained softball's shorter base paths and underhanded pitching, even while playing with a smaller ball than a regulation softball. (The All-American league adopted baseball rules for a circuit based in mid-sized Midwestern cities.)
The novelty of pro female athletes attracted good crowds in the years following the end of the Second World War. A photo of Peggy WILSON appeared in one publication with the headline: "Snappy flysnatchers and shapely eye-catchers, gal softballers draw fans."
The infielder returned to Toronto at the end of the season, later playing for the Sherrins of the East Toronto league. After marrying a tool-and-dye man named George JOHNSTONE, the local daily newspapers began carrying accounts of a now-veteran player named Peggy JOHNSTONE.
In 1952, she moved to Bayview, New York outside Rochester, where she earned $125 a week to play for a team called Van's TNT Girls. The coach was Roy Van Graflan, a former umpire who was behind the plate when Babe Ruth made his famous "called shot" gesture in the 1932 World Series.
The coach was an expert at spotting female sporting talent. His own baseball career began as a pitcher on a team known as the Van Graflans, which featured his seven brothers and father. In the baseball off-season, the moonlighting umpire coached women's basketball teams, with his barnstorming Filaret side winning 553 games of 565 played from 1933 through 1949.
In July, 1953, the TNT Girls came to Toronto to play a televised exhibition against Mrs. JOHNSTONE's old rivals, the Gartens of the East Toronto league. On his way to the ball park, the car in which the coach was a passenger rear-ended a truck on Gerrard Street. The coach's head cracked the windshield, yet he refused to be taken to hospital. He managed just two innings at the game before calling it a night. He was driven home to Rochester and died some weeks later. He was 59.
Sadly, the unexpected death of a beloved coach in an automobile accident was but one of several tragedies to be endured by Peggy WILSON. Her aunt, Eleanor (WATSON) HENDERSON, a circus trouper, was killed with four others in a fiery collision on the Trans-Canada Highway outside Hearst, Ontario A son, aged 16, was killed by a drunk driver. She would also outlive two husbands, including one who died of a brain tumour only a few years after they married.
After hanging up her glove and cleats, she lived in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, spending more than 30 years aiding the ladies auxiliary of a fraternal organization. She rarely spoke of her time on the diamond, although her obvious talent at the plate - on display during pickup games at family picnics - never failed to surprise male observers.
Margaret DOUCETTE (née WILSON, formerly JOHNSTONE and CAESAR) was born on January 10, 1929, in Toronto. She died of lung cancer on May 17 in Palm Bay, Florida She was 78. She leaves a daughter, three grandchildren and two great-granddaughters. She was predeceased by two husbands and two sons. A first marriage ended in divorce.

Detective with a steel-trap memory excelled at undercover surveillance
He did everything from wire tapping to following vehicles, even though weaving in and out of traffic while remaining undetected by a suspect is not for everyone
By Alwynne GWILT, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
John (Freebie) FREEMAN was a York Regional detective in Ontario who never gave up a case until all the parts of the puzzle were perfectly in place. For much of his career, he was a surveillance expert with a steel-trap memory who knew the name, address and activities of every bad guy in his bailiwick.
The son of a dentist father and a homemaker mother, he grew up in a two-storey brick home on Chine Drive in Scarborough, now part of Toronto. As a boy, he was surrounded by a large extended family. In 1964, his father and uncle bought an outdoor skating rink that they called Little Switzerland; it was the job of the family men to keep it up, packing snow down and flooding it on cold winter nights. He spent a couple of winters with his cousin, Greg, working at the rink, before both families decided to go rural and move to the village of Zephyr, just north of Uxbridge, Ontario, where home became about 80 hectares of blissful farmland. Along with his cousins, he bused 15 kilometres every day to attend secondary school in Uxbridge.
But country life was not for him. As soon as he turned 19, he joined the Toronto Metro Police. For a young man who loved almost any kind of motor vehicle, the highlight of joining so young was to be assigned the use of a Harley Davidson police motorcycle. They were fast times: From his motor bikes to his new job and a marriage at 21 to Ellen Dianne HENDERSON, Mr. FREEMAN left city life nearly as quickly as he entered it. After only four years in Toronto, he moved north to York Regional Police, where he would spend the rest of his career. In 1975, he began work as a uniformed officer in Newmarket, Ontario
Five years later, he was selected to be part of York Region's first surveillance unit. He had a near-photographic memory that was perfect for the job, and there was rarely a criminal whose name, address and activities he did not know by heart or could not recount easily to colleagues. Friends considered him a walking computer and liked to ask random questions simply to see whether he knew the answer.
As part of the Special Sections Unit, his work entailed everything from wire tapping to following vehicles. It was his love of driving that really cut him out as the person to tail cars. Weaving in and out of traffic while remaining undetected by the suspect is not a job for every police officer, but it was a skill that Mr. FREEMAN mastered, according to York Regional Police Chief Armand LA BARGE.
"If you're careless, you'd never survive," Mr. LA BARGE said. "But he had abilities beyond the norm, and there was a passion in Craig."
But Mr. FREEMAN possessed more than just memory skills and excelled at connecting with people through his quiet wit and friendly manner. Known as Freebie, he possessed a relaxed demeanour that came in handy when a situation needed to be defused. Answering a complaint about a noisy bar in nearby Vaughan, he convinced the owner that, rather than trying to lower the decibels, maybe the party should be fully shut down. Where most police officers would get an angry response, Mr. FREEMAN found respect.
Colleagues said you could also never tell whether he was serious or joking. Wes BONNER, his former partner, liked to recount the story of a female officer from outside the district who arrived dressed in a leather outfit.
"I just love a woman when she dresses in leather," remarked Mr. FREEMAN.
"What do you mean by that?" she asked.
"Well, you smell like a new car."
During the early years in surveillance, Mr. FREEMAN became especially close to his team, since the unit's six or seven members worked the same hours. They spent off-time together, sometimes becoming close enough to share Christmas holidays or vacation trips. It wasn't easy work and could be dangerous, investigating organized crime, auto theft and motorcycle gangs. After only a couple of years, Mr. FREEMAN was promoted to detective and took over running his team.
Everyone in the unit knew they had to pull their weight to meet his expectations. Mr. FREEMAN saw hard work as simply keeping up the standards he felt every officer should share - in the work, the uniform or even the vehicle they drove. As detective, most of his work should have been focused behind the desk or in administrative duties, but he could often be seen hopping in a car with colleagues and chasing after criminals.
During this time, he separated from and then divorced his wife. Later, he met Daneen RAE, a fellow police officer. The two became close and moved in together. In the mid-1980s, Ms. RAE was diagnosed with leukemia and given just three months to live. He stuck with her and she fought on for more than three years before dying in 1988. Not long afterward, Mr. FREEMAN transferred out of the special sections unit.
In April of 1994, he unexpectedly experienced a change in his social life that would set the course for years to come. At 42, he met the love of his life on a blind date set up by one of her Friends. Craig FREEMAN and Doctor Carol ROLHEISER made an unusual couple: She was an associated dean at the Ontario Institute of Studies in Education, while he was deep in the subculture of law enforcement.
In 1997, they married. But while honeymooning in San Francisco, Mr. FREEMAN began having problems with pain in his feet. When he returned to work, he began a quest to find out what on earth was troubling him. Over the next couple of years, he tried to figure out the cause, but he and his doctors remained puzzled. When he was finally hospitalized because of a blood clot, doctors suggested amputating his legs. That struck him as a ridiculous notion.
Dr. ROLHEISER called in some favours through her university network and the couple found a doctor who finally solved the mystery. Three years in, Mr. FREEMAN found out he was suffering from POEMS syndrome, a very rare blood disorder with no real explanation that doctors believe may involve an overgrowth of bone-marrow cells. Its unusual acronym is made up from elements of its most common symptoms: Polyneuropathy (peripheral nerve damage); organomegaly (abnormal enlargement of organs); endocrinopathy (damage to hormone-producing glands)/Edema; M protein (an abnormal antibody); and skin abnormalities.
In the end, doctors had to amputate one leg below the knee. For the next seven years, Mr. FREEMAN maintained a positive attitude and acquired all the gadgets necessary to outfit a van in a way that would allow him to motor on. Although he technically semi-retired in 1999, he remained a member of the police force and delighted in finding his Friends gifts on the Internet. Sometimes, colleagues would open the door to discover a new kitchen gadget or even, since he was the "world's biggest Jimmy Buffet fan," the latest margarita machine.
This year, with his health deteriorating, Mr. FREEMAN drove himself to his official retirement ceremony, but fell very ill in August. In hospital, he charmed the staff with his attitude. Even in his last days, his humour was not to be messed with.
"Do you know you are in Toronto General Hospital?" asked Doctor ROLHEISER, testing his cognition.
"Well, I'm not in Kansas City," he replied.
John Craig FREEMAN was born in Toronto on July 6, 1952. He died at Toronto General Hospital on August 19, 2007. He was 55. He is survived by his wife, Carol ROLHEISER, and his brother, Mark FREEMAN. He also leaves many others in his extended family.
