The city's Brier-winning curling team and a Saultite who held the province's top job during the First World War will be honoured with a leaf on the Sault Ste. Marie Walk of Fame this fall.

The Brad Jacobs rink, made up of Jacobs, third Ryan Fry, second E.J. Harnden, lead Ryan Harnden and their coach, Tom Coulterman, will be recognized for the team's success over the last four years, which culminated in this year's win at the Tim Hortons Brier and a second-place finish at the Ford World Men's Curling Championships.

Sir William Hearst, a local lawyer who was Ontario's seventh premier from 1914-1919, will receive posthumous recognition from the Walk of Fame committee.

Hearst, who lived from 1864-1941, was the city's MPP from 1908-1919 and served for part of that time as Minister of Forests and Mines.

He was knighted by King George V for his efforts in support of the Empire during the First World War.

The 2013 Walk of Fame Award recipients will be honoured at a public ceremony in September.

The Walk of Fame, which features granite maple leaves embedded in the Queen Street sidewalk near Essar Centre, is a joint project of the city and the Downtown Association.

Previous inductees include Roberta Bondar, Phil and Tony Esposito, Ted Nolan, Tanya Kim, and the band Treble Charger.

A big thanks to our sponsors...
