Teen charged after mom killed
The 'dedicated, doting' mother of five was biking when struck by a driver accused of drunk driving.
By April KEMICK and Kate DUBINSKI, Sun Media, Sun., May 27, 2007
A mother of five is dead and a teenager charged with drunk driving causing death after a crash west of London that could have been prevented, police say.
Mary Beth THOMAS, 47, of Middlesex Centre, was riding her bike north along Coldstream Road when she was hit by a northbound car near Sinclair Drive about 9 p.m. Friday.
THOMAS, lauded by those who knew her as a "dedicated, doting" mother of five, was taken to University Hospital in London, where she died of her injuries.
The driver of a Plymouth Neon, Andrew Raymond DAVIS, 18, also of Middlesex Centre, has been charged with impaired driving causing death, possession of marijuana and breaching conditions.
"She was just the most devoted mother and wife," said Rev. Pam TOLMAY of Vanneck United Church, where THOMAS was a lifelong member.
"It's a devastating loss for her children, her family and this community."
Described as an avid sports fan who "took great pride in watching all of her children play minor sports," THOMAS supported 4H Junior Farmers and was an active member of her church.
"She was an incredible person," said fellow church member Ken NIXON.
Area police and activists against drunk driving expressed disappointment about the nature of the crash.
"This is a preventable tragedy that happens all too often," said David FINLEY, community leader for Mothers Against Drunk Driving in Haldimand-Norfolk.
"This type of thing shatters families and causes irreparable damage that is needless."
Ontario Provincial Police spokesperson Const. Michelle SMITH said THOMAS's death was preventable.
"It's always (a) tragedy when anybody loses their life. And this one could have been avoided," SMITH said.
"We want to remind drivers to look out for cyclists. It's nice out now, and cyclists are out, both adults and children.
"We also want to remind drivers to drive sober."

Dead grim reminder to buckle up
Of the 80 people killed this year on area roads, 24 weren't belted in.
By April KEMICK, Sun Media, Thurs., July 5, 2007
Why aren't motorists buckling up?
That's the question nagging local police after an alarming 24th seatbelt-related death this year on area roads.
Timothy McCLUNG of Camlachie, who died Saturday after being thrown from his vehicle in Sarnia, was the latest victim in a string of deaths that police say may have been prevented by seatbelt use.
Out of 80 people killed on area roads this year, 24 were not wearing seatbelts, said Sgt. Dave Rektor of the Ontario Provincial Police's Western Region.
"Not wearing a seatbelt and being involved in a crash is the equivalent of jumping off a three-storey building," Rektor said.
"Why people still aren't wearing seatbelts is the million-dollar question."
It's been more than 30 years since wearing a seatbelt became law in Ontario, and, despite consistent public awareness campaigns and police blitzes, some drivers still refuse to buckle up, Rektor said.
A 2005-2006 survey by Transport Canada shows that somewhere between nine and 10 per cent of motorists don't use seatbelts.
In Ontario, not wearing a seatbelt carries a $110 fine and will get you two demerit points on your licence, he said.
"In terms of enforcement and education, we're just as vigilant as we ever were," Rektor said. "And yet, there's still… people that refuse to wear seatbelts."
A shocking 30 per cent of the 80 deaths on area roads this year were linked to people not wearing seatbelts, he said.
"That's 24 people that could have been alive," Rektor said. "It's very frustrating."
Paul BOASE, chief, road users, with Transport Canada, said while there's been big gains in the numbers of people wearing seatbelts since it became law, some people still resist buckling up.
Some possible explanations:
- Young people, particularly young males, who don't wear seatbelts might be under the impression they're "invincible" and don't need to buckle up.
- Impaired drivers are more likely not to buckle up than people who are not impaired
- Some drivers -- including a higher percentage of those in rural areas and people making short trips just around the corner -- are more likely to believe the chances of crashing and getting hurt are low
- Some drivers wrongly believe their air bags will be enough to save them in a crash
- People sitting in the backseat can have a false sense of safety because of their position in the back of the car
- Some drivers simply resist being told what to do by the state
But regardless of the reason behind not wearing a seatbelt, the hard fact is that your chances of dying in a crash are higher if you don't buckle up, he said.
"You're much more likely to survive if you have your belt on."
The National Occupant Restraint Program, a joint effort by federal, provincial and territorial governments, aims to bring seatbelt use across the nation to 95 per cent by 2010.
More police enforcement, tougher laws and public awareness campaigns targeting those who don't buckle up are needed to make that goal, said Shannon Ell, chairperson of National Occupant Restraint Program.

Boater feared drowned
The Strathroy man's wife saw him slip under the water in Balsam Lake, Ontario Provincial Police say.
By April KEMICK, Sun Media, Fri., July 13, 2007
Thrown from a sailboat on the waters of a Lindsay-area lake, the last thing Justin SIPLE saw before he disappeared under the waves was the face of his young wife.
The Strathroy father of two wasn't wearing a life-jacket when he, his wife, daughter and a family friend were tossed from the boat Wednesday night.
Yesterday, SIPLE, 29, was the focus of a search on Balsam Lake, largest of the Kawartha lakes, north of Lindsay.
Ontario Provincial Police officers, divers, emergency workers and volunteers have scoured the lake, but with little hope of finding SIPLE alive.
"The conditions on the lake were horrendous" when SIPLE was tossed into high waves amid heavy rain, Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Mark WOLFE said yesterday.
A string of boating deaths has prompted police and water safety advocates to call for increased use of life-jackets.
"If people wore a life-jacket when they boat, just like they put a seatbelt on when they drive, chances are the number of drownings would be reduced dramatically," said Barbara Byers, a director with the Lifesaving Society.
SIPLE's young wife, who was wearing a life-jacket when she was thrown from the five-metre boat, along with the couple's two-year-old daughter and the family friend, tried desperately to keep her husband afloat in the choppy waters, said WOLFE, of Kawartha Lakes Ontario Provincial Police.
But the conditions were too strong even for SIPLE, a stocky army reservist. Within minutes he disappeared, WOLFE said.
"The last (his wife) saw him, he was slipping under the water."
SIPLE's wife, daughter and a family friend were rescued by a passing boater, he said.
All had life-jackets, he said.
Yesterday, a fourth jacket -- stowed aboard for SIPLE, but not worn -- washed ashore.
The law doesn't require boaters wear life-jackets -- only that there be one aboard for every boater. Still,
Only a life-jacket could have saved SIPLE's life, said WOLFE.
"It wouldn't have mattered if he was the greatest swimmer," "He couldn't have manoeuvred that lake (Wednesday) night."
Last year, 80 per cent of boating related fatalities in Ontario Provincial Police-patrolled waters occurred when people weren't wearing life-jackets or personal flotation devices, said Ontario Provincial Police marine co-ordinator Sgt. Bob MINIELLY.
At least 60 per cent of this year's deaths also involved people not wearing life-jackets or flotation devices, he said.
SIPLE, a corporal with the 31 Combat Engineering Regiment out of Saint Thomas, was father to a four-month-old boy as well as his two-year-old daughter.
Pictures on SIPLE's online Facebook page portray a doting dad and proud reservist.
He was an "amazing husband," according to a passage on his wife's Facebook page.
SIPLE had been a reservist with the 31 Brigade for seven years, said Lt. James TERPSTRA, a brigade spokesperson.
"Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and Friends," he said.
Police have pinpointed the area where the boat overturned and will scour it "every day until we find him," said WOLFE.
The search continues today.

Manhunt in Huron County
Ontario Provincial Police swarm a rural Huron County township seeking Jesse IMESON, 22, right, wanted in a Windsor killing.
By Kate DUBINSKI and April KEMICK, Sun Media, Sun., July 22, Const. Charlie RAE of the Huron Ontario Provincial Police stands watch over the perimeter of a cordoned area just south of Crediton, where police continued their hunt last night for a suspect in the slaying of a Windsor man. (Susan BRADNAM, Sun Media)
Police officers and dogs combed a rural area of Huron County yesterday as they searched for an "armed and dangerous" suspect in a Windsor homicide.
Dozens of Ontario Provincial Police officers and dogs scoured a five-kilometre-wide stretch of land in Stephen Township -- from Ausable Line to Parr Line north of Mount Carmel Drive -- in search of Jesse Norman IMESON, 22.
IMESON is wanted by police in connection with the slaying of Carlos RIVERA, 26, of Lasalle.
The search for IMESON -- which earlier had police scouring Grand Bend, after investigators found the slain man's car there -- began when RIVERA's Friends reported him missing to Windsor police on Wednesday.
He was last seen at 6 a.m. that day.
Investigators tracing RIVERA's movements went to the Tap, a gay strip club in Windsor where he tended bar. RIVERA didn't show up for his Wednesday night shift, which wasn't like him, Friends said.
RIVERA was last seen in his silver two-door Honda Civic, which was being driven by IMESON, police said.
Police went to IMESON's Erie Street apartment in Windsor Thursday night and found RIVERA's "decomposing" body, said Windsor police Staff Sgt. William DONNELLY.
Police then found RIVERA's car in Grand Bend early Friday.
There, investigators obtained video of IMESON and another man at Gables, a Main Street bar.
The surveillance images were taken sometime between Wednesday and Friday, police said.
Police fear the man in the video with IMESON might be in danger, and searched the town for clues to their whereabouts.
"We've been doing door-to-door searches, going to businesses and asking them if they recognize anyone," Lambton Ontario Provincial Police Const. Todd MONAGHAN said yesterday.
"We're hoping the public knows something, or perhaps Mr. IMESON can put an end to this and come speak to us."
The man with IMESON has collar-length hair and was wearing a dark ball cap and white shirt, police said.
IMESON is six-foot-one, 200 pounds with short, almost shaved brown hair, brown eyes and numerous tattoos on his arms.
Windsor police said IMESON is known to police.
Last night, an Ontario Provincial Police helicopter joined the manhunt for IMESON in Huron County.
As night fell, marked and unmarked cruisers -- along with armed officers -- lined a perimeter in Stephen Township that framed corn fields, wooded areas and the Ausable River.
Passing motorists were warned not to pick up hitchhikers, and area homeowners were told to keep vehicles and homes locked.
"I've got my doors locked and I'm staying inside, because you just don't know," said one woman, who didn't want her name used.
Wayne GLANVILLE, whose property borders the search area, said it's rare to see such a police presence in the quiet countryside.
"It makes me a little nervous," he said of the suspect on the loose.
The Stephen Township area is full of nooks and crannies where a suspect could hide, said Huron Ontario Provincial Police Const. Jeff WALRAVEN.
"There's so many different avenues -- trees, bushes, holes," he said.
But scouring for suspects is "something the Ontario Provincial Police excels at," he added.
WALRAVEN wouldn't comment as to how long police would remain on the perimeter.
RIVERA was a "nice guy" who always had a smile for everyone, said one Tap employee who didn't want to be named.
"It's really scary. I'm hoping the police can find who did this."
An autopsy on RIVERA was slated for yesterday in London. No results have been released.

SHIELDS loved a challenge
The Driving Teacher Drew Satisfaction From Helping Students Feel At Ease.
By April KEMICK, Sun Media, Mon., July 23, 2007
A local driving instructor who taught thousands of Londoners the rules of the road has died.
Jock SHIELDS, who opened his driving school here thirty years ago, passed away yesterday at the age of 82.
"He had nerves of steel and the patience of Job," SHIELDS's son, Rob, said last night.
"He was a wonderful teacher."
SHIELDS, a decorated military man who served in the Second World War and later in Korea, Japan, Egypt and Germany, took great pride in helping people overcome obstacles, his son said.
Among some of his greatest challenges were teaching deaf people and amputees how to drive, said Rob, one of SHIELDS's four kids with his late wife of 55 years.
"He thought that every mountain could be climbed and those challenges were his biggest rewards," Rob said.
The man with the great sense of humour and humble nature made students of all ages and abilities feel at ease, his son said.
"He really had a gift."
SHIELDS, who stopped teaching just a few years ago, told a Free Press reporter in 2000 that helping people was top priority for him.
"My motto has always been, no matter what job I've ever had, 'Leave good footprints behind you, believe in what you're doing and do something that will help others,' SHIELDS said.

Victims hard-working, respected farmers
By April KEMICK and Vera OVANIN, Sun Media, Tues., July 24, 2007
Though police refused to identify the elderly couple slain in their home yesterday, neighbours and sources close to the family said they were longtime Mount Carmel residents Bill and Helene REGIER.
Phone calls made to several Regiers listed under Dashwood were met with emotional rejection.
"My family is grieving," said a woman at a Regier residence before hanging up the phone.
Neighbours confirmed police were on scene at the REGIER farm on Bronson Line north of Mount Carmel, where Bill and Helene had lived for decades.
The REGIERs, both in their 70s, were "hard-working" farmers who attended Our Lady of Mount Carmel Roman Catholic church for years, Friends said.
"They are very, very nice people, very respected in the community," said South Huron Coun. Jim DIETRICH, who has known the couple all his life.
"It's going to be a loss."
The couple had three sons, DIETRICH said.
Mike BRUNEEL, principal of Our Lady of Mount Carmel school, where Bill REGIER worked for years as a custodian, said the couple will be sorely missed.
The community -- home to the REGIERs' children and grandchildren has been rocked by their deaths, he said.
"These were two pillars of the community who were deeply loved by everybody," BRUNEEL said.
"We're still reeling from the shock."
Dale REGIER, one of the couple's sons, is the custodian at Our Lady of Mount Carmel and the couple's grandchildren attend the school, BRUNEEL said.
Though the elderly couple had downsized their farming operation in recent years, the REGIERs were still raising sheep and working on the farm, neighbours said.
"This is so bizarre," said neighbour Paul MCINNES/MCINNIS, who lives less than a kilometre from the REGIERs' farm, which was cordoned off and crawling with police officers yesterday.
"I just saw (Bill) on Saturday. He was out burning garbage."
The elderly couple were "hard-working" people, he said.
"They were great people."

Dreams never came true
By April KEMICK, Sun Media, Sat., August 25, 2007
When Viola TOLEAH boarded a plane from Africa with her best friend's daughter three years ago, both their hearts were full of dreams for the future.
The 12-year-old girl, abandoned by her parents in war-torn Guinea, wanted to be a teacher, a doctor or child-welfare worker.
In London, they thought, those dreams could come true.
But Marie TOLEAH didn't even reach her 16th birthday.
The 15-year-old, who loved to dance and listen to music, was killed this week in a crash in Oxford County, in a stolen car driven by a man, 24, who faces multiple charges.
"I really feel the pain," Viola TOLEAH said yesterday, tears streaming down her face. "I brought her here to do something good. Now I lose her. She dies for nothing."
Though the pair came here with high hopes, TOLEAH said, her surrogate daughter began spiralling downward soon after they arrived.
Marie's difficult childhood in Guinea gave way to troubled teen years, she said.
The wide-eyed girl met the wrong people in the neighbourhood and at John Paul II high school, and was soon following their influence in a country she didn't quite understand.
She began smoking, taking drugs, arriving home red-eyed and looking to fight with the woman she used to call mom.
She skipped school and wouldn't listen to anyone. Her Friends were intimidating and abusive to TOLEAH.
She ran away constantly, the police got involved, and soon the teen was in the care of the Children's Aid Society, living in a group home.
"It was really painful for me. I used to cry day and night and pray for her," TOLEAH said. "I needed help and I wanted them to advise her."
Children's Aid Society officials wouldn't confirm whether Marie was living in one of their group homes when she ended up in a stolen car Tuesday with two other teenage girls and three men.
The car -- reported stolen from Windsor -- was passing another car on the gravel shoulder when it rolled into a ditch on Oxford Road 2 in Zorra Township, west of Woodstock.
Marie was the only person killed in the crash.
Ibrahim Samory MANSARAY, 24, of London, is charged with criminal negligence causing death, possession of a stolen vehicle and breach of probation.
The comings and goings of children in the care of Children's Aid Society are monitored, but they aren't locked into group homes, said Larry MARSHALL, Children's Aid Society director of child and family services.
"We make every effort to keep kids in our facilities… but some children leave," he said. "You can try to stop a child, but there are also rules about what you can do to stop children (from leaving)."
TOLEAH said yesterday she doesn't blame the agency for her surrogate daughter's death. In fact, the agency is helping with a small funeral for Marie, she said.
She said she thinks the teen would have run wherever she was.
But she can't help but blame herself.
"If she listened to me, she might not die. It's too bad, too bad."
