Caped do­gooder hits 905

Thornhill Post - - Neighbourhood News - — JC

Known as Bramp­ton Bat­man, a man who has as­sisted law en­force­ment in the past and been wear­ing a black cape since high school, was spot­ted in Markham twice last month, with fans young and old. Like a proper dark knight, he’s a vol­un­teer crime fighter with a se­cret iden­tity. At 17, he helped the po­lice catch a man wanted for credit card fraud at a lo­cal mall. Now Bat­man con­tin­ues to help the po­lice when pos­si­ble and spreads anti-bul­ly­ing mes­sages.

Thorn­hill res­i­dent Teddy Ne­moy will be sell­ing over 500 items at the Let’s Kick Parkin­son’s … The Kooky, Krazy, Fun Stuff Ware­house Sale. Plucked from his for­mer mar­ket­ing com­pany’s 1950s soda shop show­room, the items will help raise money for Parkin­son So­ci­ety On­tario. The sale will be housed in a 2,400-square-foot ware­house be­long­ing to the cur­rent land­lord of Ne­moy’s best friend, who has Parkin­son’s dis­ease. Look out for five-foot-tall fig­urines (think the Grinch), Toy Story banks and re­mote-con­trolled cars. The sale will also fea­ture col­lectibles from Ne­moy’s trav­els.

Live-streamed meet­ings are gain­ing trac­tion in Rich­mond Hill with the num­ber of view­ers in 2014 rang­ing from 27 to 662. A pi­lot project that kicked off in March 2014, it has now ex­panded its use to cover all Rich­mond Hill Coun­cil and com­mit­tee meet­ings. The cost has dropped from a pre­dicted $478,533 in 2012 to about $6,000 a year for 2015. Trans­parency and ac­ces­si­bil­ity to lo­cal pol­i­tics is good busi­ness.

The Rich­mond Hill Lawn Ten­nis Club Inc., which has been en­joy­ing the Crosby Park ten­nis fa­cil­i­ties since the early 1970s, just sub­mit­ted a new li­cence agree­ment to the town.
