Strange rob­bery at Stanstead depan­neur

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Stanstead, Town Hall

TheTown of Stanstead is proud to an­nounce that Ms. Hélène Hamel was ap­pointed as Project Man­ager and will be tasked with com­plet­ing Stanstead’s ap­pli­ca­tion in or­der to re­ceive the Vil­lage-Re­lais ac­cred­i­ta­tion from the Min­istère des Trans­ports du Québec (here­inafter « MTQ»).

Ms. Hélène Hamel has dis­tin­guished her­self on many dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions by her lead­er­ship and her mo­bi­liz­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties, no­tably in the or­ga­ni­za­tion of the Kraft Hock­eyville con­test as well as in the fundrais­ing for the con­struc­tion of the Pat Burns Arena.

As Project Man­ager, Ms. Hamel will put to­gether the ap­pli­ca­tion for the Town of

Stanstead through the or­ga­ni­za­tion of con­sul­ta­tions with res­i­dents and lo­cal stake­hold­ers. As part of her func­tions she will have to mo­bi­lize the community as to de­ter­mine a plan of ac­tion whose aim will be to of­fer a va­ri­ety of ser­vices to our vis­i­tors, to re­vi­tal­ize the main streets and to fo­cus on the im­por­tance of a warm, wel­com­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

«We will be able to sub­mit our ap­pli­ca­tion in the Sum­mer of 2013 and I am very con­fi­dent that Stanstead will re­ceive the Vil­lageRe­lais ac­cred­i­ta­tion», said Mayor Philippe Du­til.

A Vil­lage-Re­lais is a mu­nic­i­pal­ity rec­og­nized by the MTQ which, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with lo­cal busi­nesses, of­fers a va­ri­ety of ser­vices as well as a pleas­ant and safe place to visit. This ti­tle en­ables the mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties to ben­e­fit from in­creased vis­i­bil­ity and from sup­port for lo­cal and re­gional de­vel­op­ment.

Alex van Zuiden, of Ayer’s Cliff, Ma­gog mayor Vickie May Hamm, Ste-Cather­ine-de-Hat­ley mayor Jac­ques De­mers, or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Pierre Riverin, and the pres­i­dent of the foun­da­tion, Gilles Pouliot.

They were also liv­ing on Duf­ferin Street, just a few build­ings down from the store. “Ap­par­ently the sus­pects went into the store more than once dur­ing the night, steal­ing al­co­hol and cig­a­rettes. The two men and one woman, rang­ing in age be­tween twenty and thirty, did not re­sist ar­rest,” added Of­fi­cer Guin­don. By the time we went to press, the sus­pects, who were ar­rested around 8:30 am, were still at the SQ head­quar­ters, wait­ing to meet with in­ves­ti­ga­tors. Of­fi­cers re­turned to the res­i­dence of the in­di­vid­u­als yes­ter­day af­ter­noon to do a search of the premises.

Of­fi­cers in the Coat­i­cook MRC were par­tic­u­larly busy last week­end. On Satur­day morn­ing, at around 11:00 am, a man en­tered a bar on Child Street and tried to steal the cash in the reg­is­ter. A fe­male em­ployee in the bar re­sisted the thief and a scuf­fle be­gan which ended with the fe­male em­ployee pulling the sweater off of the cul­prit who then ran out of the build­ing, empty-handed! Af­ter a quick in­ves­ti­ga­tion, the SQ of­fi­cers, who knew the sus­pect, made an ar­rest. Al­though, in this case, re­sist­ing the thief led to an ar­rest with­out any­one get­ting hurt, the po­lice do not nor­mally rec­om­mend this kind of re­sis­tance.

On Satur­day evening, around 11:00 pm, Coat­i­cook of­fi­cers were called to re­spond to a dis­tur­bance. When the of­fi­cers were head­ing to their ve­hi­cle, a mo­tor­cy­cle passed a car on a dou­ble line, right in front of the SQ head­quar­ters, so the of­fi­cers sep­a­rated, one head­ing to the dis­tur­bance while the other went af­ter the mo­tor­cy­clist who was also driv­ing badly. The mo­tor­cy­clist was stopped and ar­rested for drink­ing and driv­ing. The of­fi­cer who went to in­ves­ti­gate the dis­tur­bance found a woman, quite ine­bri­ated, sit­ting in her car. She was also ar­rested be­cause, if you are drunk, you are not even al­lowed to be sit­ting be­hind the wheel of your ve­hi­cle when it is parked.

A young man from Montreal was clocked do­ing 146 kilo­me­tres an hour in an 80 km/hr speed zone, on Sun­day af­ter­noon around 5:00 pm, trav­el­ling down the Barn­ston-Bald­win Road in Coat­i­cook. He re­ceived a fine of $1,086 and lost 15 de­merit points. “When driv­ers are stopped for ex­ces­sive speed­ing, we have the right to also sus­pend their li­cense im­me­di­ately for seven days,” com­mented the spokesper­son. Oh my Good­ness, how can this be? Our lit­tle Harley is turn­ing 6

Ban­tam Boys:

The Ban­tam Boys con­tin­ued their win­ning streak on Mon­day as they de­feated Rich­mond 8-0. Alex Wise­man-Beese had a glo­ri­ous game with three nice goals, while Vin­cent De­lange net­ted two beau­ties of his own and Nathan Steven­son, Ja­cob and Sam Wub­bolts added sin­gles in the lop sided af­fair.

On Wed­nes­day the boys hosted Stanstead Col­lege in a muddy af­fair, but it didn’t slow the boys from Galt down as they scored early and of­ten to take a 5-1 lead at the half. Jarod Stone and Mathew Horni­brook slipped two goals each past the Spar­tan keeper while Steven­son con­verted a nice pass­ing play to end the half. Grant Kirby kept the Pipers rolling in the sec­ond half with a nice shot while Stone and Horni­brook ended their fine af­ter­noons with a hat trick goal each as the Pipers so­lid­i­fied an 8-2 win.

Ju­nior Boys:

The Ju­nior Boys fi­nally got their first ETIAC win of the sea­son on Mon­day af­ter­noon and they did so in con­vinc­ing fash­ion as they routed the boys from Rich­mond 6-2. Pat Noel took mat­ters into his own hands by scor­ing four goals and play­ing like a mon­ster the whole game. Tris­tan Boivin and Matthew Dostie added sin­gle mark­ers to round out the scor­ing for the Pipers.

On Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon the boys from Galt hosted a much big­ger team in Stanstead Col­lege. As a re­sult of only win­ning only one game all sea­son the Pipers were ac­tu­ally play­ing their fi­nal game of the sea­son as they failed to qual­ify in a very tough and com­pet­i­tive league. The Spar­tans used their size and out mus­cled the Pipers to win 3-1. Noel got the only goal for the Pipers. Ju­nior Girls: The Ju­nior Girls looked to make up for their lack­lus­ter ef­fort against Massey-Vanier the week be­fore as they trav­eled to Stansted Col­lege on a warm Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon. Sarah Landry scored half way through the first half to give the lady Pipers a 1-0 lead. Once again the girls from Galt showed very lit­tle emo­tion and in­ten­sity in the sec­ond half and the Spar­tans took ad­van­tage of this and tied the game up early in the sec­ond half. Nei­ther team had many scor­ing chances af­ter that and the game ended in a draw. The girls from Galt can still clinch the reg­u­lar sea­son ban­ner with and win or tie against Massey-Vanier next Wed­nes­day at home.

On Fri­day the girls got off to slow start against BCS, but El­iza Stevens man­aged to beat the Bear goalie with a nice shot to give the Pipers a 1-0 lead. The girls seemed to wake up

BACHELDER (Good­sell) Caro­line – Passed away at her home in Stanstead on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 15th, 2012, at the age of 73 years. Lov­ing wife of Neil, dear daugh­ter of the late Nor­man Good­sell and the late Win­nie Garceau. Pre­cious sis­ter of: Lawrence, Madeleine, Roger, Rita, Don­ald, Rus­sell and Michael. She was pre­de­ceased by her broth­ers; John and Ger­ald, and sis­ter Joyce. There will be a pri­vate fam­ily gath­er­ing and no ser­vice. in the sec­ond half as they scored six times to put the game out of reach. Stevens ful­filled an out­stand­ing af­ter­noon by scor­ing three more times while Sab­rina Messier-Dorey kicked in two goals of her own and Landry rounded out the scor­ing to win 7-0. Alex Bibeau recorded her fifth shut out of the sea­son.

Se­nior Boys:

The Se­nior Boy’s played their fi­nal reg­u­lar sea­son game when they hosted the first place Spar­tans on Wed­nes­day. The game did not have any im­pact on the stand­ings, but the Spar­tans showed why they are the team to beat as they bounced the Pipers 4-1. The game was ac­tu­ally close (2-1) with ten min­utes re­main­ing be­fore the Spar­tans sealed the win two late goals. The lone marks­man for the Pipers was Robert roger Bur­rows. Coach Steve Walker’s club will rest and prac­tice for the re­main­der of the week as they pre­pare to host MasseyVanier Tues­day af­ter­noon at 3:30 in a big semi fi­nal match up. The win­ner will play in the ETIAC fi­nal Wed­nes­day at 3:00.

Se­nior Girls:

The Se­nior Girls and Rich­mond played for the sec­ond time this sea­son on Mon­day af­ter­noon at Galt. Myr­iam Elkas led the Piper at­tack with two goals in the first half and Ha­ley Pinkston added a goal of her own to give the ladies from Galt a 3-1 lead at the half. Lind­say Moore and Vanessa Stevens would add in­sur­ance goals in the sec­ond half to give the Pipers a 5-2 win.

Two days later the girls trav­eled down the 143 to take on a team they have not beaten all year in Stanstead Col­lege. Coach Mark Learned stressed the im­por­tance of play­ing with more en­ergy and mov­ing more with­out the ball be­fore the game. The words of wis­dom some­what paid off as the girls from Galt dug in and bat­tled hard match­ing skill for skill with the Spar­tans as the two teams bat­tled to a 1-1 tie. Myr­iam Elkas notched the lone goal for the Pipers while keeper Sarah Poudrier was rock solid as she foiled sev­eral of the Spar­tan chances.

The girls’ busy week ended Fri­day when they trav­eled to Cowansville to take on the Vik­ings from Massey-Vanier. The game had huge play- off im­pli­ca­tions, as the win­ner would host an ETIAC semi fi­nal as op­posed to trav­el­ing. The weather lim­ited a lot of ball move­ment throughout the game as heavy rain re­sulted in a lot mud. Nonethe­less the Vik­ings were able to find the back of the net in the first half to take a 1-0 lead. The Pipers out­played the Vik­ings in the sec­ond half with sev­eral op­por­tu­ni­ties but the stingy Vik­ing de­fense and keeper al­ways found a way to keep the ball out of the net and won the game 1-0. As a re­sult, the Pipers will travel to Massey-Vanier on Tues­day for the ETIAC play off semi fi­nal as the un­der­dogs and hope to play spoiler.

Football:

The Se­nior Boy’s football team was in tough Satur­day morn­ing as they squared off against first place Du Phare. Du Phare showed why they were un­de­feated all sea­son and de­feated the Pipers 52-10. Chad Bob­bitt sparked a lit­tle ex­cite­ment for the Pipers af­ter cap­ping off a 66-yard touch­down re­cep­tion from quar­ter­back Jonah Bald­win. Shawn Pax­ton scored the other three points for the Pipers when he con­verted a 30-yard field goal. The loss left the Pipers out of the play offs and an end to their sea­son by go­ing 2-5.

An SQ of­fi­cer speaks with one of the sus­pects in front of his home at the time of the ar­rests.

The other male sus­pect is helped into the po­lice cruiser Tues­day morn­ing.

An SQ of­fi­cer heads into the Stanstead depan­neur to gather in­for­ma­tion about the crime.
