Quarry tragedy claims teen
A fall at a Beachville quarry claims a budding photojournalist, 19, while another man is killed by a train at Richmond Row.
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, and Glynnis MAPP, Sun Media, Mon., July 30, An Oxford County teen about to embark on his dream of a career in photojournalism was one of three men killed in a tragedy-filled weekend in the London area.
Michael STOOP, 19, of Salford, near Ingersoll, was killed about 2 a.m. yesterday when he slipped on loose rocks while hanging out at a quarry in Beachville with five Friends, Oxford County Ontario Provincial Police said.
"It's hard to accept… it's such a loss for us," said STOOP's aunt, Ellen ESSELTINE. "He was a clever and bright kid and a well-liked kid… he was just awesome."
The Ingersoll Collegiate grad, who played on his school's football team, was going to attend Loyalist College in Belleville starting next month to study in its prestigious photojournalism program.
His family just helped him buy a new camera for school.
Police said that after slipping, STOOP fell down the rock embankment at the quarry. He was pronounced dead there.
"He fell about (three metres). It's a very unfortunate thing," said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Mark Foster. "I don't think we've had a quarry death around the area in a long time."
Elsewhere in the region, police investigated the deaths of two other men in separate tragedies: A 23-year-old man who was hit by a train in London near Richmond Row -- less than an hour after STOOP's death -- and a 27-year-old who drowned while boating with Friends in Chatham-Kent.
In the train tragedy, London police said alcohol may have been involved in the death of the 23-year-old man who was killed while crossing the tracks, located near a popular strip of bars.
Police didn't name the man, but said he's not from here.
The incident happened just after 2: 30 a.m. yesterday, at the rail tracks at St. George Street near Piccadilly Street, just north of Richmond Row.
Police don't suspect foul play in the man's death, said Const. Darrin BROWN.
"There is nothing suspicious about it."
BROWN said police didn't know where the man had been before trying to cross the tracks, but police had spoken to a couple of witnesses: who had "dealt with him."
At Mitchell's Bay yesterday, rescue workers continued to search for the body of a 29-year-old Chatham-Kent man who went missing on Lake St. Clair Saturday evening.
The man was out with four others in a small boat off Mitchell's Bay marina, said Chatham-Kent Ontario Provincial Police.
He was in the water about 6 p.m. when his Friends realized he couldn't get back to them.
As they tried to help him get back to the leisure boat -- which was about six kilometres from the marina -- the man slipped under the water, police said.
He is presumed dead, said Chatham-Kent Ontario Provincial Police Const. Aaron McPHAIL.
Members of the Chatham-Kent Fire Department, the Canadian Coast Guard and the Ontario Provincial Police were searching a one-kilometre-square radius for the body of the man while an Ontario Provincial Police helicopter buzzed overhead.
"This is a recovery mission," McPHAIL said.
Police did not identify the man or the passengers.

Horsewoman killed by train
Shirley STOREY waited for one train, but was hit by a second leaving the Western Fair.
By Patrick MALONEY, Sun Media, Sun., September 16, 2007
A woman involved in a Western Fair competition was struck by a train and killed just outside the fair grounds yesterday, the second straight year that tragedy has marred the exhibition.
Shirley STOREY, 62, of Clinton, was waiting at a level crossing at Rectory Street with four others -- including her husband, Jim -- as a westbound train trundled past.
With the warning lights still flashing, the group began to cross when the other four noticed a freight train heading east. But Shirley STOREY, described by Friends as a "super lady," didn't see it coming.
"I was in the (Agriplex) when I heard the train brakes," said Ted LANSBERGEN, who, like STOREY, was at the fair for a equestrian competition organized by the Mid-Western Ontario Horseman's Society.
"It was terrible," LANSBERGEN said. "She's a hard-working lady. A good couple, good hard-working family."
The 7 a.m. incident blocked the tracks for about three hours, forcing local Via passengers to board buses yesterday morning.
Those involved in the horse riding competition park their trailers in a gravel lot on Rectory Street, immediately south of the train tracks running south of York Street. They walk across the tracks to the nearby Agriplex.
Making the tragedy all the more stunning is the fact Jim STOREY was there when his wife was struck by C.N. train 398, which was Toronto-bound.
He had to be pulled from the scene by Friends within the close-knit equestrian community, one witness said.
"(Shirley and Jim) were attached at the hip," said Lynn EATON, a friend and director with the horsemen's society. "They were always, always together.
"He went to a (recent) competition in Strathroy (alone) and he went home because he couldn't be without her. He missed her."
This weekend's event did go on as scheduled despite the tragedy, EATON said.
"Shirley had a plaque she always carried with her… That's what we read when we had a moment of silence for her," EATON said. "Shirley would have wanted it to go on.
"I was just joking with her (Friday) night. It's just a shock."
A tearful LANSBERGEN said the STOREY clan had been competing at Western Fair for close to a decade.
Though everyone knows to be careful on the tracks, he expressed surprise that trains travel so fast through the city.
The lights were activated and warning arms down at the time of the tragedy, London police Sgt. Greg BLUMSON said.
Though it isn't common for two trains to cross paths at the same time at a level crossing, a C.N. spokesperson said it does happen and pedestrians should be aware of that.
"If you have two tracks there, always expect a second train," Frank Binder said yesterday. "It's a tragedy for the family, it's tough for our crews (but) if the lights and bells are activated, always expect a train.
"And whatever number of tracks are there, that's how many trains there could be."
Another tragedy cast a pall over the Western Fair last year, when Londoner Janet RUDD, 32, choked and collapsed while playing a fair-run game in which she stuffed marshmallows in her mouth and tried to say the words "chubby bunny." She died in hospital.
"It's a sad note for all of us, especially those of us who knew Mrs. STOREY," fair manager Dave TAILOR/TAYLOR said of yesterday's death. "We certainly feel for the family."

MERKLEY, Dorothy (née STOREY)
Teacher, weaver, supreme homemaker, nurturer of family, Friends and pets. Born January 9, 1924, in Napanee, Ontario Died September 27 in Burlington, Ontario, after a hip fracture, with advanced Parkinson's disease and multiple medical problems, aged 83.
By Brenda BASS, Page L8
Dorothy MERKLEY was the fourth of six children born to Les and Lillie STOREY. Coming of age on a farm during the 1930s, a child of entrepreneurial parents who were often away quarrying stone and building roads, was no doubt the impetus for Dorothy's independence and capabilities in the home.
As a spirited woman of 18, Dorothy attended Normal School in Peterborough, Ontario She taught at several one-room schoolhouses, where her professionalism, energy and love of children affected some so much they remained in touch with "Miss Storey" for more than 60 years.
While working in Iroquois, Ontario, where she lived in a rooming house with her older sister Helen, also a teacher, Dorothy met her future husband. Alfred MERKLEY had been an exceptionally bright high-school student of Helen's. He pursued an engineering degree at Queen's University, and upon graduating moved to New Brunswick.
Dorothy followed him there and they married a week later. Shortly after she was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Dorothy had only had time to give her new home a thorough cleaning when she was forced to return to Ontario, first to the family home and then to a sanatorium in London.
Alfred obtained new employment in London, and for 2½ years made a daily trek on his bicycle to visit his young bride.
Dorothy survived to become a supportive mother to her only child, Paul, born in 1956. She was extremely proud of Paul and his wife, Lora, and of her nieces and nephews, their spouses, children and pets.
Dorothy excelled as a homemaker (her standards for cleanliness and ironing were exacting), became a prize-winning weaver (her standards for salvage edges also exacting), was active in her church and community and was an accomplished cook, baker and canner.
Her conservative standards were legendary. None of her family can recall seeing her in anything other than a smartly tailored dress or skirt, stockings and leather shoes - with a crisply ironed apron if she was working in the kitchen. Nor did she smoke, drink or swear. But she was as ready for fun as anyone.
Dorothy was part of a generation whose lives spanned much of the 20th century and who optimistically embraced the changes and challenges that that century wrought. She represents a morality, work ethic, generosity of spirit and way of life that is quintessentially Canadian.
Brenda BASS is Dorothy's niece.

Canadian turned two epiphanies into a career of 'staggering impact'
Much lauded writer formed a bond with readers and used Christianity as a powerful element in her work
By Noreen SHANAHAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- It was a June night in 2003 when Margaret AVISON accepted the Griffin Poetry Award for the book Concrete and Wild Carrot. Her humility filled the room.
"This is ridiculous," she told those in attendance, after the applause died down. "I do appreciate the occasion and the honour, but I don't see how anybody could pick only one winner." After reflecting, she added: "What makes you write a poem is so remote from this kind of honour."
However, Ms. AVISON was no stranger to applause. She won the Governor-General's Award for poetry twice - the first time in 1960 for her debut collection Winter Sun and again 30 years later for No Time. She also won a Guggenheim Fellowship (1956), a Jack Chalmers Award (2003) and three honorary doctorates, and was made an officer of the Order of Canada. She was 85 years old when she won the Griffin. Judges commended her for "the many decades she has forged a way to write, against the grain, some of the most human, sweet and profound poetry of our time."
Ms. AVISON's reputation is as a rigorously intellectual poet - to understand the depth of her words, one must return to them again and again.
"You work your way into it," said writer Dennis Lee, "and then, after six months, you wonder why you ever found the poem forbidding.
Her work was admired greatly by a wide range of writers, readers and academics, from George Bowering and Gary Geddes to Margaret Atwood.
Ms. AVISON experienced two epiphanies in her life: one specifically having to do with writing poetry, and one related to her life as a devout Christian and writing poetry from inside this frame. The first arrived in a Grade 9 poetry club at Toronto's Humberside Collegiate. Teacher Gladys STORY offered a suggestion: For the next 10 years, don't use the first person in any of your poetry. Ms. AVISON took the advice, allowing her to form a generous and committed bond with her readers, whom she believed to be part of the creative process.
"A poem needs to be received to be complete," she said. "So yes, I write for listeners out there somewhere… not to give to, teach or encourage them, but to acknowledge together that something has touched off a poem."
Her second epiphany came in her early 40s, shortly after publication of her first collection of poems. Her awakening to Christianity dramatically shaped her writing and the rest of her life; she came to be compared to 17th-century metaphysical poets John Donne and George Herbert, as well as Gerard Manley Hopkins and T.S. Eliot.
"Her poetry had a staggering impact," said Toronto writer Ken Babstock. "She is easily one of the best poets Canada has produced. [She is] theologically sophisticated… reading her work, I had not come across syntax like that in any Canadian poetry up to that point. Syntax is where real complex thought happens."
Margaret AVISON was born in Galt, Ontario, in 1918, the year the First World War ended. Her mother played the church organ and her father was a Methodist minister. Shortly after her birth, her parents, brother and sister moved west - Margaret was just 7 when she had her first poem published in the Calgary Herald.
In 1930, the family moved to Toronto. She graduated in 1940 from Victoria College, University of Toronto, having studied English literature under E.J. Pratt and Northrop Frye.
After graduation, she worked in office jobs for a number of years, freeing herself to write in the evenings. In 1956, she was awarded her Guggenheim Fellowship to study in Chicago. This was a transformative experience, not only because she was finally able to devote her time entirely to a manuscript but because this resulted in the 1960 publication of Winter Sun. She was awarded her first Governor-General's Award later that same year.
It was also the year that Christianity became a powerful element in her work. Critic Carmine Starnino warns readers not to assume that her writing is conservative, however: Beneath her words, "untapped revolutionary properties wait like the insides of a shaken bottle of bubbly."
Generations of writers received Ms. AVISON's poetry as a gift. She was a pleasure, a challenge and, in many ways, a model.
"I listen to [Ms. AVISON's] infinite sympathy for the natural world, her sensitivity to the physical weather of the soul, her razor-sharp eyes, which move like a hawk's and a sighted mole's, her wry debates with herself, her ornery, unfashionable courage, her poetic genius for placing words in such a way that I feel as if I'm meeting them for the first time," said writer Elizabeth Hay.
Ms. AVISON returned to Victoria College and received her master's degree in 1964. As part of her studies, she attended an inspiring writing workshop at the University of British Columbia, where she worked with Black Mountain poets Robert Creeley, Charles Olson and Denise Levertov. Her second collection, The Dumbfounding, was published in 1966. With two published books and a spreading reputation, Ms. AVISON began teaching literature at Scarborough College, University of Toronto.
In 1968, she put poetry aside and dedicated herself more completely to religion. She began working for Evangelical Hall, a Presbyterian mission in Toronto. One of her tasks was to hold poetry workshops at the Queen Street Mental Health Centre.
In 1973, she briefly returned to academia as the first writer-in-residence at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, and published her third poetry collection, Sunblue, in 1978. Shortly afterward, her mother fell seriously ill. As primary caregiver, Ms. AVISON curtailed her literary work again in favour of a steady secretarial job at the Mustard Seed Mission in Toronto. Mr. Lee remembered Ms. AVISON's generosity toward her mother during this time.
"They were living in the same apartment, a lot of her time was devoted to taking care of a 90-year-old blind lady, and if that meant she wasn't going to get a lot of writing done, then so be it. A lot of writers go the other way - the writing comes first and life commitments come second." Her mother died in 1985.
No Time was published in 1989 and won Ms. AVISON her second Governor-General's Award. Thirteen years later, she published Concrete and Wild Carrot.
In 2005, she was awarded the Leslie K. Tarr Award for outstanding career contributions to Christian writing in Canada. She published her final collection, Momentary Dark, in 2006, at the age of Margaret AVISON was born April 23, 1918, in Galt, Ontario She died July 31, 2007, in Toronto after a brief illness. She was 89. She is survived by several nieces and nephews and many devoted Friends.

A fitting farewell to Canadian Opera Company's BRADSHAW
By Matthew TREVISAN, Page A10
It was Richard James BRADSHAW's last standing ovation. As his hearse and family drove away from Saint_James Cathedral in Toronto yesterday, hundreds of mourners - and passersby across the street - began to applaud the Canadian Opera Company's general director one last time.
It was a fitting, final thank you to the man who conducted more than 60 operas during his tenure with the Canadian Opera Company, including a complete production of Wagner's Ring Cycle in 2006, a Canadian first, and brought the company a new opera house, the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.
"I think his loss is terrible because it's a personal loss to all of us who knew him, and knew his work and the quality of his work," said former governor-general Adrienne Clarkson, after attending Mr. BRADSHAW's funeral yesterday.
"But on the other hand, I think he built something. And it's not just bricks and mortar, which he built in the opera house, but he built something showing us we could be as wonderful as we could when we tried. And I think he got us into a state where we understood that about ourselves."
Mr. BRADSHAW died suddenly of a heart attack on August 15. He was 63.
About 1,500 people - among them Ontario Lieutenant-Governor James Bartleman, former Ontario premier Bob Rae and journalist Barbara Amiel - attended his funeral, filling Saint_James beyond capacity. People who couldn't squeeze inside the church sat outside on folding chairs on a cool, grey day, and listened to the traditional Anglican requiem mass through speakers.
Mr. BRADSHAW was officially the musician-in-residence at Saint_James, but was also a weekly member of the congregation and musical adviser to the Very Reverend Douglas STOUTE, dean of Toronto and the cathedral's rector.
"Richard BRADSHAW did not want a eulogy," Mr. STOUTE told mourners during the homily. "Richard BRADSHAW would have abhorred a eulogy."
Mr. STOUTE said Mr. BRADSHAW would have wanted to celebrate "the profound opportunity" to reflect on the themes of his Christian faith, which was "often triggered in the first place by live music, whether by opera, symphony or something small and insignificant."
Born in England, Mr. BRADSHAW was hired as the Canadian Opera Company's chief conductor and head of music in 1989. He was promoted to artistic director in 1994 and named general director in 1998, becoming the first musician to lead the Canadian Opera Company since Ettore Mazzoleni in the 1950s.
At a later date, the Canadian Opera Company will host a public memorial to honour Mr. BRADSHAW.
Mr. BRADSHAW's body was cremated at a private ceremony after his funeral and his ashes are to be buried today at Saint_James Cemetery at Bloor and Parliament streets.
