During his first cross-country running season at Regent Park Public School three years ago, Kayden Beebe stumbled during a practice, spilled to the ground and chipped his front tooth. "It was nasty, I can tell you that," recalls Kayden, grimacing at the grisly memory. "There was a lot of blood."

Terriers best Schomberg

Sparked by strong play from rookies and newcomers, the Subaru of Orillia Terriers skated to a hard-fought 4-3 win over Schomberg Thursday night. The much-needed victory snapped a four-game losing skid as the Terriers improved to 2-7 in Provincial Junior Hockey League play.

Noah Man, juggling many competing demands on his time, was thinking about quitting taekwondo, a sport he has been immersed in since he was eight. With one eye on the future, the teen knew it was important to keep working hard to maintain his 90% average, but he was also a member of two bands and had begun working at a local coffee shop to save for
