THE GOOD, THE BAD and THE BIZARRE

Thornhill Post - - News -

A Thorn­hill man’s last dy­ing THE GOOD: wishes were to en­joy the taste of steak and to be with his wife on her birth­day. How­ever, these seemed un­likely to hap­pen: His wife had died two years prior, and the 82-year-old was no longer able to stom­ach solid foods. Af­ter re­ceiv­ing a call from the man’s daugh­ter, a man­ager at the Rich­mond Hill Keg was able to de­velop a recipe for puréed steak (by grind­ing it with a lit­tle French soup base) and de­liver it to the man just in time be­fore he passed away — on the day of his wife’s birth­day.

York Re­gional Po­lice are urg­ing THE BAD: res­i­dents and dare­dev­ils to stay away from cranes, af­ter ex­e­cut­ing their third crane res­cue this week. Rich­mond Hill and WhitchurchS­touf­fville fire ser­vices were called to a con­struc­tion site in Stouf­fville. The male climber was charged with mis­chief and another sus­pect fled the scene. Crane climbers can be charged with tres­pass­ing and mis­chief as well as other crim­i­nal charges. More con­se­quen­tially, crane climb­ing is danger­ous for both the climber and the res­cuer.

A Thorn­hill stu­dent was THE BIZARRE: able to raise $500, with help from his class­mates, to rent a horse for an elab­o­rate “promposal.” On top of man­ag­ing to keep it a se­cret, ev­ery mem­ber of his grade chipped in $2 each to­ward the rental fee. De­spite the boy hav­ing never mounted a horse be­fore, his loyal steed car­ried him to vic­tory: Af­ter he pre­sented his fair lady with a sign that read, “Prom? Yay or neigh?,” she kindly ac­cepted, and they both rode off into the sun­set or at least to Sil­ver Spur Ranch in Klein­burg to re­turn the horse.
