905 TV host con­quers YouTube

Richmond Hill Post - - Neighbourh­ood News - By Jen­nifer Cheng

Best known as the host of HGTV’s long­est-run­ning pro­gram, In­come Prop­erty, Scott McGil­livray has launched his first dig­i­tal se­ries, Good to Grow, on YouTube. The 16 episodes, which run till Oc­to­ber, fol­low the Rich­mond Hill na­tive and his fam­ily as they pre­pare their fourth an­nual or­ganic veg­etable gar­den. Al­ready a triple threat as a real es­tate in­vestor, con­trac­tor and ren­o­va­tion ex­pert, we can now add avid gar­dener to his cred­its. Tune in on Wed­nes­days at 2 p.m. for McGil­livray’s tips and tricks for the per­fect crop.

When newly ac­quired Toronto Maple Leafs for­ward Zach Hyman isn’t on the ice, he’s plug­ging away on chil­dren’s books. At 23, the Hobey Baker Award fi­nal­ist, who at­tended Ta­nen­baumCHAT school in Thorn­hill, al­ready has two chil­dren’s books pub­lished — Hockey Hero and Bam­bino and Me — about young kids with big dreams. Ran­dom House has or­dered two more.

Thorn­hill Sec­ondary School stu­dent Robin Clark’s early suc­cess as a gym­nast on the pro­vin­cial level has paved the way for her new ca­reer as a high jumper. She took home a gold medal with a leap of 1.66 me­tres at the On­tario Fed­er­a­tion of School Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tions Track & Field Cham­pi­onship. What a de­but.
