Bluffs Monitor Needs a New Home
by Lee Graves
 Those who live in Birch Cliff or travel through it often will have noticed the big sign advertising a new condo going up opposite the Hunt Club.
 That sign is on the building next to Bluffs Monitor's offices and it and the two buildings on either side of our offices are going to be torn down in the near future to make way for the new condo.
 That's what I get for activating the City to do a revitalization plan for Birch Cliff! Bluffs Monitor gets to be a victim!
 I've been trying to get the City to rent the house which is part of the Harris Estate to us and a couple of other local community groups who are looking for space. It's opposite Birchmount Stadium and is next door to Scarborough Arts. It's empty and needs some fixing up.
 It is only a couple of weeks ago that I finally found out who decides if the City will rent a specific locality and to whom and in contacting this person I found out that the City is just not interested in looking after ANY buildings of any sort. They only want to be involved in parkland.
 So now we understand  why the Guild Inn is in such a mess? Why the Bell Estate house is not being used as was intended by its previous owners and now even the Osterhaut Cabin seems to be getting the thumbs down.
 So, if any of our readers know of a building on a main road within our circulation area, preferably no further east than Guildwood Village, with super cheap rent, (below $1,000 month) please let us know at: 416-691-4085. It doesn't have to be a store front. In fact I'd prefer it not be, but it must be visible from the street and on a ground floor. We need approximately 400 sq.ft. of completely empty space.
 Mind you retirement doesn’t sound too bad either!

The photo at the top of this page is of the Bluffs today, seen from the bottom of Brimley in what is known as Bluffers Park
They have a history of European occupation going back to the seventeen hundreds. Lowland Scots emigrated to this area after being pushed out of their farms in Scotland by the titled gentry. Some of their descendents still live here today.
The name “Scarborough Bluffs” was given to it by Elizabeth Graves Simcoe, wife of the first Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada,
John Graves Simcoe because it reminded her of Scarborough Bluffs in England.
The Bluffs are the only geologically scenic area in the greater Toronto area but are also a geologic wonder, visited by scientists from all over the world to study its exposed history of the planet.  

Scarborough Communities are Unique!
 Scarborough Swim Club's Open House (May 7) to honour 60 years of the competitive swim club, was held at the new Pan Am Sports Centre at 875 Morningside Avenue.
  There are more than 150 kids in the competitive program and more than 100 kids in the learn to swim program. The club is a parent-run club. Parents are expected to officiate at the swim meets we organize and the board of directors is comprised of parents.  
 While the kids were swimming in the pool, parents and the board of directors celebrated the first five inductees into the Scarborough Swim Club's Hall of Fame. They are: Ron Watson, Darin Muma, Muriel Warden,
Elizabeth Warden and Cindy Nicholas the first five to be inducted.
 Darin Muma became coach of the SCC in 1989.  He developed numerous high profile age group swimmers during his tenure, including Elizabeth Warden who later went on to swim for Team Canada at the Olympics. Darin was inducted into the coach category.
 Cindy Nicholas competed 19 successful crossings of the English Channel. She also swam across Lake Ontario. The former MPP represented Scarborough Centre from 1987-1990. She was inducted in the swimmer category.
 Muriel Warden had three sons and a daughter in the
Scarborough Swim Club. She was also a board member of the club. She also became a weekly reporter for the Scarborough Mirror Newspaper writing up stories from various swim meets. She was inducted in the builder category.
 Elizabeth Warden joined the club in 1985 and competed for 10 years.  She won her first provincial title at the age of 10 under the direction of coach Darin Muma. She also swam for Canada in 2004 at the Olympics and placed 11th in the 400 IM. She was inducted in the swimmer category.
