There was a head on accident on Dufferin County Rd #3 between the 25th and 30th sideroads in Amaranth Township early tonight. One person lost their life, and a second who is in critical condition was airlifted to hospital.

A Twenty-year-old female, her mother 41, and brother 15, were driving along County Road 11 through Amaranth in their BMW convertible on their way to visit relatives in Shelburne Friday evening.

According to police, a southbound Dodge pickup, driven by a 57-year-old man, crossed the centre line and collided head-on with the BMW.

The mother who was from Caledon, was pronounced dead at the scene. The daughter was airlifted to Hamilton General Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries; the son was airlifted to SickKids Hospital in Toronto with serious injuries. He is expected to pull through, police said.

Hockley Valley Resort 14th Annual Charity Event

no comments

Yesterday Hockley Valley Resort held it’s 14th Annual Charity Event. Proceeds from the event will go to support Headwaters Health Care Centre, Megan’s Walk, Caritas, Sick Kids Foundation Children’s Circle of Care, and the Ontario Track 3 Ski Association.

The presenting sponsor of the event was Dean Orrico, Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer, of Middlefield Resource Funds. Other sponsors were: Marita Simbul-Lezon of RBC Dominion Securities, Sysco, CI Funds, Sentry Select, Pepsi Bottling, Labatt Breweries, Molson’s, and The UI Group, to name a few. They had a great day, both with the weather and time spent with over 250 guests in attendance.

Hockley Valley Resort is one of the top 100 resorts in Ontario. The golf course presents quite a challenge playing from the black tees even for a low handicapper. They have a beautiful spa for both women and men to relax in, and with two restaurants and a banquet kitchen, food was abundant everywhere throughout the resort. Dinner was a fabulous three course meal. If you have not had the chance yet to visit, I would highly recommend that you do as the hospitality is second to none!

Here are a few of the images from the days event. More images are on the website under Events.

Sideroads Magazine Summer 2009 Cover

Sideroads Cover Summer 2009 Wow! I am humbled, I have been told that one of my images graces the cover of Sideroads Magazine, a quarterly publication by the Orangeville Banner, a subsidiary of Metroland Media Group. Thank you so much I consider it quite an honor.

Here is the blurb that went along with it!.

“It’s easy to miss pure beauty when you’re looking for something flashier and more obvious; fortunately, that wasn’t the case the day I took this photo of a water lily. The owners of a property on Mono-Amaranth townline told me about a blue crane nesting on one of their ponds. After getting their permission, I arrived at the pond and set up my equipment. Knowing the elusive cranes can be skittish, I sat quietly and waited…and waited…and then I waited some more. Getting a little restless after an hour or so, my attention turned to the water lilies floating gently in the pond. When I squinted my eyes, the scene was reminiscent of a Monet, which inspired me to try to capture on “film” what the painter captured on canvas. I never did see the blue crane that day, but my time was well spent.”

The name-term FATHEAD does not reflect this group of amazing musicans in anyway shape or forum! As you can see from these images, they like to joke around… but…

When they hit the stage, they turn it on, and turn it up! If you missed them here this weekend, look them up, find a venue where they are playing and enjoy.

See my website for more images of them.
