ACRES, Jane Mary
Died peacefully at her residence at London, Ontario, May 6, 2008, after a decade-long courageous and tenacious fight against breast cancer. Jane was the dearly beloved daughter of the late A. Dixon and the late Janet Allan Nelson ACRES, and deeply devoted sister to Bill. Hers is eternal peace with her Lord. Jane is survived by a huge number of family and Friends. She was a source of inspiration and delight to all who knew her, as hers was a character impossible not to love. She will be greatly missed by her cousins in the Bargiel, King, Hayter, Acres, Guthrie, Tulloch, Nelson, Crichton, Spiegelberg families, especially Mary BARGIEL, Scott, god-daughter Katelyn, and Benjamin SPIEGELBERG, and her loving cousin and godmother Sylvia BARGIEL, cousins Sandra and Duane TULLOCH.

Fr. Michael BECHARD, Joan ALDIS, Marilynne DAVIES, John HENG, and Erin and Andrew JARDINE. Jane's life transcended denominations and groups: her first goal was love.

Man's crime spree recalled
Donald Wayne CLINE died last month at age 55, but he's remembered for his deeds at age 21.
By Joe MATYAS, Sun Media, Wed., March 5, 2008
Donald Wayne CLINE, the key figure in a dramatic Southwestern Ontario crime story more than 30 years ago, has died.
CLINE, 55, died late last month in hospital in Saint Thomas, his hometown.
A generation earlier, in 1975, the then-21-year-old was thrust under the spotlight in a 37-hour news saga.
The story began with a stolen car in London and the robbery of a Thamesford IGA store by four armed men. It turned into a 21-hour siege of a farmhouse on Highway 2 at Skee-Hi Road and ended a day later when London police tear-gassed a Boulee Street townhouse and arrested CLINE.
The evolving story included:
- A family with four children held captive.
- Two police officers disarmed of their service pistols.
- Shots fired at police and media.
- A $10,000 ransom paid for the release of three children.
- Police pursuit of a car containing an ex-convict driver, an armed man and a hostage on Highway 401 to and from Toronto.
- The car eluding police at night.
- A telephone tip to police where CLINE could be found.
CLINE was convicted a year later of attempted murder, three counts of armed robbery and one each of extortion and car theft.
He was sentenced to 18 years in prison, with eligibility for parole.
News of his death surprised those who covered the story.
"It was a big story at the time," said retired Free Press reporter Jim TAILOR/TAYLOR, one of the reporters who covered it. "I got a kick out of it."
The bizarre events were preceded by CLINE's escape from the Millhaven minimum security penitentiary on October 1, 1974, where he was serving a 4½ -year sentence on five charges related to a gas station robbery.
During his trial on the Thamesford events, CLINE testified he fired shots at police to frighten them, not to kill. No one was hurt.
Five police forces were involved in various phases of the events, with the Ontario Provincial Police leading the investigation.
The media took heavy criticism, when the incident was over, for having made direct phone calls to CLINE at the farmhouse during the seige.
Critics said the media made it harder for police to end the incident.
A newspaper reporter was chided for making himself the intermediary between CLINE and the police and a broadcaster was rebuked for asking CLINE during a live interview why he wasn't asking for a larger ransom.
CLINE was acquitted of kidnapping after testimony revealed he knew the family thought to be hostages.

Robbery possible motive in florist's death
Neighbourhood shaken after body of mother of three discovered bound and gagged in North York store
By James BRADSHAW, Page A17
A tight-knit North York neighbourhood is reeling after a local florist and mother of three died Thursday night during what police are calling an apparent robbery in which she was bound to a chair, gagged and left helpless in the washroom at the back of her store.
Felicia HOSANY's husband, Rafick, found her shortly after 9 p.m. Thursday in Flowers By Felicia on Wilson Heights Boulevard at Sheppard Avenue. Mr. HOSANY called police, who later confirmed that money was missing from the store, suggesting robbery as the motive. An autopsy revealed Ms. HOSANY died of suffocation with ligature restraints.
In a poignant tribute, several people stopped yesterday to place flowers in front of the store. Friends and customers described Ms. HOSANY, 51, as a kind and generous person who was more concerned with her neighbourhood relationships than running a prosperous flower shop.
One area resident, who asked to be identified as only Dave, said he and his wife bought their wedding invitations from Ms. HOSANY 11 years ago, and his mother is a friend who buys weekly flower arrangements to leave at her late husband's grave.
"She wasn't about business," he said. "She charged my mum $3, and my mum would give her a $2 tip and she wouldn't take the tip. She just wanted to know how the family was doing, how my mum was doing; she was just there for company. Business was secondary to the neighbourhood."
Susan SHMUEL, who owns a pet daycare and grooming centre a few doors away, said Ms. HOSANY came to her store on Thursday to buy a collar for her dog, a pit bull that was in the store with Ms. HOSANY the night of the robbery.
"It's just awful, she would come in to just say hi," Ms. SHMUEL said. "Everybody knew her to be a friendly, nice person. She was always smiling, she was always happy."
Kim PERRY has been working at the nearby Times Square Diner for eight years, where Ms. HOSANY often stopped in for meals. Ms. PERRY said they were on a first-name basis and that she was devastated by the news of her death, having just heard that Ms. HOSANY was expecting to become a grandmother any day.
Most residents and business owners describe the area as safe and quiet, a sentiment that added to their horror upon hearing the disturbing details of Ms. HOSANY's death.
"We haven't had any issues, any problems -- it's so quiet," said Josie MARQUES, a customer of Ms. HOSANY since she moved to the neighbourhood nine years ago. "It's a small little area, everybody sort of knows everybody."
But others said they have noticed the local character changing recently.
"It is a pretty safe, quiet neighbourhood, but the last year there's been a lot of drug activity," Dave said, pointing out several "hot spots" he says are dens of vice.
Another resident, Kimberly CLISH, said she has seen evidence of an increasing drug problem, and her brother discovered a used syringe in the parking lot of the Country Style coffee shop across the street a few days ago.
Police are asking anyone who might have information about the crime to get in touch with them.
