Found: Act of kindness leads to new bond suitcase Woman leaves thank-you note for good deed done years ago by man’s late father full of meat John Kurucz

jkurucz@thenownews.com

Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com There’s an awful lot you can pack into a suitcase — clothes would be the first items that come to mind. But apparently, as Port Moody police have discovered, a suitcase is also an acceptable way to pack meat. The department was called to a report of an abandoned suitcase out front of an apartment on St. Johns Street Sunday night. When an officer opened up the suitcase, police found more than 100 pounds of various packaged frozen meats. Police aren’t sure where the edible contents came from, but note it’s not unusual to get the occasional report of food stolen from deep freezes kept in carports. “Most likely one of our local homeless went rummaging through someone’s outside deep freeze, gathered up the meat into an old suitcase and rode off,” said Port Moody police spokesman Const. Luke Van Winkel, adding the meat either fell off or the person may have gotten startled and dropped it. “In the long run it’s probably best that they dropped it. Some of the beef had best before dates of 2004 — the prime rib was well past its prime.” The department sent out this tweet late Sunday night: “We have found a suitcase full of 100 lbs of meat. On the sidewalk. Please come and get it if it’s yours. #mysterymeat.” While no one has come forward to claim the suitcase, police said they’ll hold on to the meat for the time being.

It’s a lesson in paying it forward that spans two families, three generations and a 14-year gap. Though he wasn’t expecting any mail at the time, Port Moody resident Larry Coleman followed a hunch that led him to his porch on Christmas Eve. Situated on the sill of his Ioco Road doorway was a thank-you card recalling an act of kindness his late father had performed in 1999. “I was unlocking the door, and I thought to myself, ‘This is silly, I’m not expecting anything,’” Coleman said. “But I opened it up anyway and on the door sill was an envelope that said Merry Christmas on it.” The card had only a first name attached to it — Sarah — and recalled a rainy spring day 14 years ago. On that day, a stranded motorist found herself having to walk from the Port Moody Public Library back to her home on Flavelle Drive. On top of the fact that it was raining, the card writer had a six-month-old daughter in her arms. “About half-way home, my arms were aching and it was beginning to rain,” the card reads. “A very kind gentleman who lived in this house noticed my struggle and offered me a ride home. This simple act of kindness has stayed with me through the years.” The letter was referencing Larry’s father, Leonard, who died in 2005. “I got all teared up when I read that card,” Coleman said, adding he was unaware of his dad’s good deed until reading the card. “Dad was a really good guy. He would help anyone. Someone saying thank you after 14 years really touched me.” Christmas Day saw Coleman convene with other

In fact, Coleman couldn’t read the card aloud and instead asked his sister-in-law to. Buoyed by the profound effect the card had on him, Coleman set out to find the seemingly anonymous card writer. He purchased a professionally made sign that read, “Thank you Sarah, please call” in the hopes the two could connect. About a week passed by, and he had heard nothing. “I just want to say thank you to her because it made so many people’s Christmas,” Coleman said. “Even the place where I got the sign made, one of the gals there kind of teared up as I told her about why I’m getting the sign made. It’s been the same

thing with my neighbours.” But on Jan. 7 the call came through, and Larry put a voice to the name. As it turns out, the letter writer, Sarah Bondi, lives a few blocks away. At first, Bondi wanted to remain anonymous, but her 14-yearold daughter Kira — whom Bondi was carrying that day in 1999 — convinced her mother to do otherwise. “When I passed the sign, I think I went 11 shades of purple. I thought this whole thing would be done anonymously,” Bondi said. “But I was so tickled pink with that sign. I knew that I had to say thank you and to make sure that his family knows that I haven’t forgotten.” The pair connected over the phone on Jan. 7, and met in person for the first time last Thursday.

It wouldn’t have happened were it not for Kira, who, along with her classmates, has focused on random acts of kindness throughout the school year. It was that classroom focus that prompted Bondi to write the card.

“It was so simple and it was only three minutes out of his way,” Bondi said. “He was such a gentleman. It was a simple, simple act of kindness and I always like to tell my kids that these are the things that are so important in life.”

Officer on a mission to end bullying Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

Long before Const. Tad Milmine donned the Red Serge and vowed to protect the public as an RCMP officer, he was just a kid. A shy and quiet kid. A kid who grew up without his mom, but around an alcoholic father and an abusive stepmother whom he would come to know as the “devil.” Milmine was banished to the basement of his dad’s house from around the age of five, with just the four walls surrounding him as his companions.

As a child, all he dreamt of doing was helping people, even if no one seemed to want to help him. He was teased, bullied and picked on in school in nearly unimaginable ways. Milmine had no friends and was never really taught the necessary skills to socialize. He was alone in his dark thoughts of suicide. The man, who would eventually be called on to save lives as a police officer, cried every day of his young life. It wasn’t until he ran away from home at 17 that the tears finally stopped. Eventually, Milmine got his life together after living

on welfare by working in the restaurant industry. It wasn’t until he was 32 and met an RCMP member on a softball team that he started to realize his dream of helping people. Milmine became a Mountie and joined the Surrey detachment. It’s a remarkable story — one that an attentive group of Citadel Middle School students in Port Coquitlam got a front-row chance to hear last Friday. But Milmine’s tale doesn’t end there. While he was out catching bad guys during his regular shifts on the beat, the officer’s

dream of helping kids, like the child he was more than 20 years earlier, started to take two routes. Inspired by the tragic story of Jamie Hubley, a gay teen from Ottawa who committed suicide in 2011 after years of being bullied, Milmine started speaking to schools and developing both a website and project called Bullying Ends Here. It was all done on his own time and dime. It was also around that time that the three-year veteran of the force was asked to take part in an RCMP video called It Gets Better. In it, he and several other RCMP members described

both their struggles and triumphs in dealing with their sexuality, in hopes of reaching out to kids in similar situations. The video, which was released in November, won the praise of many at a time when the force’s image in B.C. had been battered by scandal and misconduct. Speaking to The NOW, Milmine said it took him seconds to agree to take part in the project. “I’m openly gay and I’m an RCMP officer and I do a darned good job,” he said. “Any positive message we can put out there for youth

‘Monster home’ issue raised in Maillardville said changing the zoning in parts of Coquitlam could bring unintended consequences: introducing multi-family units that may be equally undesirable, or devaluing parcels of land. “By doing this, are we going to solve anything? I don’t think so. Are we going to make it more difficult for a landowner to develop a singlefamily home? Yes, we probably will if we restrict it too much,” Asmundson said. Maillardville Residents’ Association president Al Boire told The NOW Tuesday that while his group hasn’t had any formal talks on the matter, it is a concern. The sticking points tend to be both the size and design of certain homes in the area. “In my personal opinion, that kind of large house in our area and in our neighbourhood really is out of character,” he said. “These big homes in Maillardville really do stand out, maybe more than in other neighbourhoods — like the [Westwood] Plateau.” Sekora noted his motion doesn’t aim to change zoning bylaws or lot size requirements on the Westwood Plateau or Burke Mountain.

Turn it about

N

ow is the time for the BC Liberals to steal some ideas that members of the Opposition like to raise before an election, and then conveniently forget if and when they form government. Premier Christy Clark is in the perfect position to act on the kinds of ideas politicians prefer to maintain within the realm of study and discussion — the kinds of things they like to promise before an election, but that tend to slip from their memories after the votes are counted. After all, the BC Liberals can’t seriously be thinking they’ll still be on the government side of the legislature when the election dust settles this May. They don’t have to worry about instituting important legislation that may be unpalatable to voters because, frankly, an overwhelming number of voters already find the BC Liberals unpalatable anyway. And for the same reason, they don’t have to worry about whether they will be boxing themselves in by making rules now they’ll regret having to follow later. In fact, they have a rare opportunity to do something that should have been done long ago — and the best part is they could saddle the (probably) incoming NDP government with its own suggestion. The B.C. NDP is calling for legislation banning any government from using public money on advertising to pat itself on the back — clearly in response to the millions of tax dollars the BC Liberal government is spending to promote its own programs and put a positive spin on some rather questionable labour and general economic statistics. We all know it’s mostly a political ploy on the part of the NDP. But if the Clark government were to introduce and pass such legislation before May, the incoming NDP government would be forced to abide by the very restraint they are calling for now, instead of conveniently forgetting about it after they are in charge. No loss to the BC Liberals — and the real winners would be the taxpaying public.

In the Doyle affair, the premier’s office insisted In fact, Dix’s image and public opinion about him she gave no direction to her members on the committee weighing Doyle’s future, which seems strange may be the single biggest variable in the months

ahead. The public’s negative feelings about the B.C. Liberals and Clark have been entrenched for more than a year, while Dix is fertile ground. So expect a relentlessly negative and personal campaign by the B.C. Liberals (and, perhaps more importantly, their allies in the corporate community) in the weeks ahead, one aimed at Dix’s head. The campaign may well smack of desperation, which wouldn’t be surprising given the gap between the two parties and the fact time is running out fast. The challenge for the NDP may well be to simply hang on and hope the next few months pass quickly, with more hiccups and missteps on their opponents’ than on their own side. So far Dix has shown discipline, and his challenge will be to keep his own team in check (which I and others have pointed out many times before). Every week that passes where the focus is on B.C. Liberals’ mistakes is another reason for a sigh of relief on the NDP side. Every week that sees the B.C. Liberals trouble-free may well increasingly shift the spotlight on to Dix and his party. So get out your calendars and start crossing off the days. The official campaign starts in mid-April, but the real campaign has already begun.

Call it the “fiscal tsunami,” and it could hit B.C.’s shores sooner than most think. It’s the hangover that comes from creative accounting, financial wizardry and a little reliance on a magician’s sleight of hand. B.C.’s budgets are chalk full of household terms like “Notional Allocations to Contingencies.” What they are not is an exercise in clarity or brevity. The B.C. government’s 2012 budget came in at a mind-numbing 64,000 words, or one-third the length of the Old Testament. In spite of this, the media still tries — in a matter of hours — to report the salient facts in stories that might run 1,000 words each or three minutes on television. However, what’s often missing from their reports is any real historical analysis of public finances, particularly when it comes to debt and future fiscal commitments. Debt can be an albatross on any government. Just ask a college or university graduate about that student loan hanging from their neck. It presets the amount of fiscal room a future government has to set new priorities or address unforeseen needs. But just try to get an accurate handle on B.C.’s debt. It’s like trying to grab a fistful of water. There’s the debt represented by accumulated budgetary deficits and there’s the debt most British Columbians begrudgingly accept that they are on the hook for as well through cor-

Lougheed brush fire linked to homeless camp

Firefighters sought A new year has brought a new round of hiring for the PoCo fire department, which is replacing a pair of retiring firefighters this spring. PoCo fire chief Nick Delmonico said he is expecting a lot of interest in the positions, adding during the last round of hiring the department received close to 300 applications. “You always want a real diverse group of people to look at so you’re getting good applicants,” Delmonico said. “It’s quite an involved process,” he added, noting the department won’t likely have the new boots on the ground until May. While those positions get filled, the fire chief is waiting on a decision from council to expand the size of the department and make several operational changes. Delmonico said the department is short staffed, noting there hasn’t been an increase in personnel in 22 years. It currently has a staff of 64, including 54 firefighters. He didn’t go into specifics about the operational changes, but noted the department wants to add 10 new firefighters over the next several years. Council is expected to provide a response to the request by the end of the month.

A small weekend brush fire is believed to have started in a homeless camp. Coquitlam and PoCo fire departments were called to the fire, in a wooded area along Lougheed Highway between Pitt River and Orchid roads, just after midnight Saturday. Coquitlam crews were first on scene and managed to quickly put out the fire, which had grown to about 100 feet in diameter. No one was injured, but PoCo deputy fire chief Al Nicholson said the area appeared to be a homeless camp, which was empty by the time investigators arrived. Propane tanks were also found at the site. “It was more like a campfire that got out of control a little bit,” Nicholson said. He said the department hasn’t been called to the location in quite some time, but noted city bylaw officers will keep an eye on the area. Rob Thiessen, executive director of the Hope for Freedom Society, said homeless camps are a huge danger, specifically because of the use of propane tanks in the bush. “At some point in time there was a camp that was going to burn out because of the way they chose to heat

Karin also has a series of paintings in the show depicting Freyja, the goddess of love, war and fertility, set against the backdrop of the Northern Lights. It’s believed in Norse mythology that the Aurora Borealis lit up the night sky as Freyja and other warriors rode off towards battle. “Norwegian culture is something that I’ve made a point of studying and looking for in my adult life,” said Karin, 31. “After Arne passed away, that solidified, for me, the sense of family.

Stroller used to stash stolen perfume Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com For most, the thought of using a toddler as part of a crime is unimaginable. But that’s exactly what Port Moody police allege a dad tried to do during a shoplifting attempt last week. Police were called to the Shoppers Drug Mart on St. Johns Street last Friday (Jan. 11) after two men were alleg-

edly spotted in the store stealing 17 bottles of perfume worth $900. One suspect got away, but a second was caught down the street at the bus stop in front of Moody Middle School. Police said the man brought his 17-month-old son along with him and used the child’s stroller to conceal the stolen perfume. “It’s always disappointing whenever you see an innocent kid being dragged into

this type of thing,” said Port Moody police spokesman Const. Luke Van Winkel. “Now you have a 17-monthold kid who’s had to watch his dad get arrested, who’s going to have to deal with the repercussions from this.” The 39-year-old man from Surrey, who is known to police, was arrested, while his son was handed over the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD). Charges are being sought

against the man, who was not identified. Though the second suspect got away, it may not be long before the law catches up to him. Apparently he left behind a notebook with his name, phone number, court information and what investigators called a “shopping list” of stuff to steal — specific colognes, perfumes and medications — and a list of Shoppers Drug Mart and Safeway stores from

Port Moody to Vancouver. Police wouldn’t comment on that portion of the investigation, but Van Winkel noted there have been a lot of thefts of cosmetics across the Lower Mainland because they are quick resale items. He also added there is no indication the child was used as a prop in other thefts, but that’s something both police and MCFD will be looking into as part of the investigation.

Port Moody police Const. Luke Van Winkel: “It’s always disappointing whenever you see an innocent kid being dragged into this type of thing.”

Woman wields gun on balcony Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com Residents living in a quiet Port Moody neighbourhood likely got a bit of scare after a woman was seen brandishing a shotgun on the balcony of a home. Port Moody police were called to the home in the 200 block of Angela Drive Friday after 4 p.m. to a report of a woman pointing a shotgun and yelling at two other women in a vehicle. While police were on their way, the vehicle left the house, while the suspect went back inside. However, due to the seriousness of the situation, police shut down the area to traffic. Eventually, the woman came out of the house without incident and was arrested. She was taken into custody for pointing a firearm and unlawful possession of a firearm. Officers searched the house and found a 12-gauge shotgun under the bed in the master bedroom. The woman’s 25year-old daughter claimed ownership of the firearm, but the shotgun was seized for public safety. Police believe the entire incident stems from an ongoing family dispute. “Every family has arguments and disagreements, but to get to the point where you’re pointing a shotgun at someone goes beyond rational thinking,” said Port Moody police spokesman Const. Luke Van Winkel. “Everyone involved is quite fortunate this incident didn’t end tragically.” The 47-year-old woman, who was not identified, was taken to hospital under the Mental Health Act, but released on a promise to appear in court. twitter.com/ jercoquitlamnow

Police statistics show fewer drunks on road jdeutsch@thenownews.com There’s no doubt social media is playing a greater role many people’s lives, but it does have its challenges as far as police are concerned. That’s especially the case when it comes to drinking and driving road checks. Some Lower Mainland motorists have taken to Twitter to alert drivers about roadblock locations. It’s a practice the Vancouver Police Department recently condemned, and in the Tri-Cities, Mounties feel pretty much the same way. RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung noted tweeting roadblock locations isn’t illegal, but cautioned people need to keep in mind what they’re doing. “You wouldn’t be feeling very good if an impaired driver ended up hurting or killing someone you loved because he or she takes another road to avoid a roadblock,” he told The NOW, adding there have been situations in the TriCities involving people tweeting roadblock locations. Whether it was people avoiding roadblocks or just choosing a safe way to get home after a night of drinking, the number of motorists busted for drinking and driving in the Tri-Cities during the holiday season was down compared to previous years. According to CounterAttack numbers provided by Coquitlam RCMP, the force handed out 15 24-hour driving prohibitions during the month-long campaign. Police also handed out six three-day immediate roadside prohibitions [IRPs], one seven-day IRP, 21 90-day IRPs and one Criminal Code charge for impaired driving. That’s compared to 2011, when local police issued a total of 42 24-hour roadside suspensions, 18 three-day IRPs and recommended seven Criminal Code charges for impaired driving. It should be noted police weren’t handing out 90-day IRPs, as the legislation was being challenged in court at the time. In all, police dealt with a total of 44 impaired drivers during this year’s campaign, compared to 67 in 2011. Chung noted the decline is consistent with those in similar communities across B.C.

“I would say people are sort of getting the message and some of them are not,” he said, adding police are still seeing a large number of drivers getting 90-day suspen-

sions. Last summer’s CounterAttack program also yielded similar results in Coquitlam, with the number of drivers receiving roadside

prohibitions dropping by onehalf from the previous year. Despite the extra attention paid to drunk drivers during the holiday season, Chung said the RCMP will continue

to target impaired drivers throughout the year. Under tough provincial drinking and driving laws, which were reinstated in June following a court challenge,

In the early 1980s, our founder, Dr. Joe McInnis, laid the groundwork for end of life care in our community as he identi"ed the lack of knowledge and facilities available to support those facing life$s "nal !ourney. His insights sparked the interest of a small group of dedicated volunteers who were committed to end-of-life issues. In 1988, this group formally incorporated as Crossroads Hospice Society. Under Dr. McInnis’s direction and with the support of other like-minded individuals, the society developed a compassionate visiting volunteer program that would change the lives of many. As awareness of the needs of the terminally-ill grew, the dream to build a stand-alone hospice was born thanks to the wisdom, inspiration and support of many people in our community. Nearly 15 years following the society’s formation, Crossroads Inlet Centre Hospice was opened in Port Moody on

September 17, 2003 and now annually serves approximately 150 clients, as well as their families and loved ones. In 2004, Crossroads Hospice Thrift Store opened, providing a place for our community to recycle gently-used goods, and as a source of support to help us “put life into days”. Central to thrift store operations is an enthusiastic group of volunteers that dedicate over 17,000 hours each year to serve our loyal customers. In 2008, we celebrated our 20th anniversary and broke the ground for the Crossroads Hospice Labyrinth Healing Garden located in Port Moody’s Pioneer Memorial Park. The garden opened in the spring of 2009 and offers our patients, families, staff, volunteers, and community members a place of peace, respite, and healing. As we continue on our !ourney we are planning to add a 25-year twist to our all our annual events and with a unique art pro!ect thanks to a grant from the City of Coquitlam Spirit Fund.

GUIDES 2013

Encourage kids to live a more active lifestyle Unlike their parents, today’s kids often forgo sandlot baseball or games of tag for much more sedentary fare like video games or surfing the Internet. While video games and Internet access aren’t lacking in value, many parents would prefer their kids be more active. Though it can be difficult to get kids off the couch, there are ways parents can help their kids live and embrace a more active lifestyle, which can have benefits both now and down the road. ◗ Make it a team effort. Parents who are concerned their kids aren’t getting enough daily exercise should ask themselves if they’re getting enough exercise themselves. Kids aren’t the only ones who need daily exercise. A good way to encourage kids is to join them. Make daily physical activity a team effort. Kids don’t have to join Mom and Dad at the gym. Instead, go for a nightly walk after dinner, or make time to play catch in the yard. Kids often take cues from their parents, even if their parents aren’t aware. Parents who exercise every day are much more likely to have kids who exercise every day as well. Set a positive example for kids and include

them in your own fitness routine whenever the opportunity arises. ◗ Minimize television time. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends older kids watch no more than two hours of television per day. But as any parent knows, most kids average much more than two hours of television per day. To decrease that tube time, parents can take televisions out of their kids’ bedrooms, instead putting televisions only in the common rooms, which will also allow parents to more closely monitor what their kids are watching.

◗ Encourage extracurricular activities. While parents might find it hard to believe, today’s kids, even with all the video games and additional gadgets, still get bored. Boredom might be contributing to sedentary lifestyles. To combat boredom, parents should encourage extracurricular activities that get kids off the couch. Whether it’s participating in team sports, joining the local or school theatre program or even getting a job, parents should encourage kids to do more after school than come home and turn on the television or play video games.

◗ Express interest in kids’ activities. Parents should express interest in their kids’ activities. If kids like to fish, ask how they fared after their most recent trip to the neighbourhood fishing hole. When parents express an interest in their kids’ activities, kids are more likely to embrace those activities, something that’s especially beneficial if the activities in question are ones that get kids off the couch. — MetroCreative

◗ Emphasize activity instead of exercise. Many adults associate exercise with going to the gym or running on the treadmill, both of which are tough to get excited about. Kids might be equally indifferent and less enthusiastic about exercise. Instead of emphasizing exercise, encourage kids to be active. Being active doesn’t have to entail playing a sport or doing any calisthenics. Instead, an active lifestyle is one that’s not spent idling the hours away lounging. Encourage kids to get outdoors and pursue interests other than video games or television shows.

lar activities. There is evidence that some after-school activities can actually help promote better results inside of the classroom — even helping to mediate symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Activities like sports, band, cheerleading, martial arts, among other extracurricular events, can promote good feelings about school and offer lessons that carry over into the classroom environment, helping students become more successful. A study by the U.S. Department of Education revealed that students who participate in cocurricular activities are three times more likely to have a grade point average of 3.0 or better than students who do not participate in co-curricular activities. In a 2003 study published in Sociology of Education, researchers found that there are positive associations

between extracurricular participation and academic achievement. Many adolescents who participate in extracurricular activities report higher grades, more positive attitudes toward school and higher academic aspirations. Beyond this, there are many ways that extracurricular activities can support improvements in the classroom. ✦ Most activities promote physical stamina and patience. ✦ Students develop selfesteem and good relationships. ✦ Students are able to apply theories learned in the classroom in a real-world context. ✦ A healthy measure of competition is developed. ✦ Students learn to value teamwork and achieve a goal through common values.

Extracurricular activities can lead to improved test scores and better behaviour in the classroom. This makes the activities attractive to parents of students hoping to mold well-rounded children. It’s important to note that, in some instances, too much of a good thing may be detrimental. If a student is so busy with a packed schedule of extracurricular activities, he or she may actually fall behind in school work. Therefore, it’s vital to keep a balance so that students can successfully manage what goes on inside of school and outside of school. — MetroCreative

Top teams take aim at Shootout Like the Golden Globe awards, the Centennial Top10 Shootout is a must-attend event for this year’s finest. The senior girls AAA basketball showcase tournament hits the twin gym floors in Coquitlam with the top nine teams from the most recent provincial poll. Also in attendance are a handful of highlyranked squads knocking on the door. When it comes to a preview of the AAA B.C.s, this is where the elite come to meet: REACH FOR THE TOP The Centennial Top-10 Shootout continues to attract the best programs from around B.C., in a mid-season AAA senior girls hoop showdown. This year’s edition is no different, beginning Thursday 9:30 a.m. in the blue gym when No. 2 Handsworth take on honourable mention Gleneagle, who are fresh off of winning the Archbishop Carney Classic last week. Game 2 on opening day, 10 a.m. in the red gym, has a battle of two teams tied at No. 8 in the rankings — Port Coquitlam’s Riverside against Kelowna. The tourney has 16 teams in all, with games starting right until 7 p.m. The second round starts 10 a.m. on Friday, with the semifinals slated for 6 and 7:45 p.m. The championship goes Saturday at 4:30 p.m. at Centennial Secondary. FULL STEAM AHEAD Regrouping after last week’s trade deadline deals, the Coquitlam Express get back to business with three B.C. Hockey League games — including two at the Poirier Sports Centre. On Friday, Coquitlam hosts rival Langley in a battle for the final playoff spot, starting at 7 p.m. After a trip to Merritt, Coquitlam returns to face Interior leading Penticton, who feature ex-Express sniper John Siemer, Sunday, 2 p.m.

OT winner boosts Express confidence

It’s not often the Coquitlam Express get to lead off a segment on The Sports Network. On Friday night, they did just that — and they can thank forward Adam Rockwood for that. Rockwood’s dipsy-doodle penalty shot goal on Friday — that lifted the Express past the visiting Merritt Centennials 5-4 in 1:48 of double-overtime — gave the snakebitten squad a respite from recent bad news and tough breaks. It also got them on the national TV sports show’s highlight reel. The win also marked the start of a new era, or at

least the last leg of the 2012-13 season following the team’s trading of scoring leaders John Siemer, Philip Zielonka and captain Mitch Nardi last Thursday. Coquitlam finished the weekend with a tough 7-2 loss to the Prince George Spruce Kings on Saturday. The twin contests mirrored some of the club’s regular shortcomings this season — against Merritt, the Express struggled through a slow start and generated just 19 shots over 66 minutes. Against Prince George, the home team put up 37 shots, outshooting the Kings, but were bombarded in the second period

of a game they dressed just nine forwards in. But the spirited comeback on Friday and a goal that went viral was something that gave the club hope for its playoff chase. “It was after a long shift and I was pretty exhausted,” recalled Rockwood of his double-overtime penalty shot winner. “All I was thinking of was what move, what to do… Once I narrowed it down I had it in my mind, it wasn’t like improvised or anything.

Reyes sparks Ravens past Talons for Beagle bronze Stories by Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com Extra time played a big role at the Terry Fox Legal Beagle Invitational senior boys basketball tournament last weekend. The title tilt required double-overtime before the White Rock Christian Academy Warriors prevailed 86-80 over the Walnut Grove Gators in Port Coquitlam. The two heavyweights, who were ranked No. 3 (Walnut Grove) and No. 4 (WRCA) heading into the weekend, provided tremendous entertainment and a lot of intensity over the two-plus hours of action. It was extra practice time and some sharper defensive skills that propelled the Terry Fox Ravens over district rival the Gleneagle Talons 68-64 in the third place matchup earlier Saturday. Thanks to some fine sharpshooting from Grade 10 guard Jomari Reyes, the Ravens erased a 14-point deficit beginning late in the second quarter to collect the momentum heading into a busy week of league play. “We were thinking we had to shoot better, we just wanted to win third and finish the tournament on a strong note,” remarked Reyes, who tallied 16 points in the third quarter alone to lead the rally. “We weren’t playing well in the first quarter, so we just had to work harder.” Reyes ended up with 25 points, cashing in six treys while being a source of energy from his point guard position. Chipping in with 10 points and a strong game on the boards was Trevor Casey. Reyes’ shooting has benefitted from the support of his father, who accompanies the teen to school three times a week for 6 a.m. gym time, and the lessons learned from basketball dean Rich Chambers

in three times a week evening classes. He was named to the tourney’s first all-star team. “[Reyes] was totally hot, he definitely deserved his all-star honour,” noted Casey. There’s much momentum to be gained at a high-calibre competition like the Legal Beagle, which featured three of the top four teams and five of the Top 10 in attendance. That two of them were usurped in the opening round kind of set the stage for final day fireworks. Unranked Fox bumped off No. 9 Sardis 63-47, while Gleneagle shocked No. 1 and previously undefeated Kitsilano 72-67. As he did most of the tourney, Denver Sparks-Guest topped Gleneagle shooters, earning a position on the second all-star squad. Although it didn’t set the table for better things, Talons coach Tony Scott said it was an effort that the club needs to replicate against other teams. “We were solid, we just never gave up against Kits,” said Scott, who coaches the only senior boys team this year to beat both Kits and Yale, the top two squads who’ve traded places during the first half of the season. “We’re young and these guys are full of confidence when they play the No. 1 [team]. The thing is to get them to think they can play that way against other teams.” It would also help to have a full lineup. Following Thursday’s win over Kits, Scott was without two of his starters due to disciplinary suspensions. He anticipates that both should be back this week. Terry Fox, meanwhile, also hopes to convert the serious lessons learned at the Beagle into victories in the North League regular season. Head coach Steve Hanson thought a couple of slow starts reflected his roster’s relative youth

Merritt’s Sean Maktaak drew a hooking penalty which resulted in an immediate penalty shot for Coquitlam. Rockwood went on to dangle the puck mid-slot on netminder Tyler Steel before lifting it overtop the goalie’s glove. It was just their eighth win since Halloween. “It just looked like the guys packed it in but in the second period we turned it around, got some lucky bounces go our way for once and made a game of it,” head coach Jon Calvano said. “In overtime we just threw everything to the wind… It was a phenomenal goal, how he undressed the goalie like that.” Newcomers Ben Israel and Garrett Forster, acquired for Zielonka from Chilliwack, both made strong contributions in their Express debuts. Israel threw a couple of huge hits and moved the puck efficiently, while 17-year-old Forster tallied once and set up another. Also scoring in the win were Mitchell Fyffe and affiliate callup Jackson Cressey, with a pair. Coquitlam fell behind 4-0 before Will Cook put one on the board for the home team on Saturday. Zach Pryzbek also tallied in the loss. For Rockwood and the rest of the forwards, the trades have created an opening when it comes to scoring opportunities. The top line — which is Lisa King/NOW expected to be led by veteran Justin Georgeson and Coquitlam forward Zachary Pryzbek, at right, bounces newcomer Adam Rossignol — has an opening, while Merritt’s Bennett Huber against the boards Friday. powerplay chances will be spread around to those who The Express, who sit just a single point back of the help generate scoring opportunities.

Top-10 kicks off playoff stretch For two local teams, the Centennial Top-10 Shootout tournament has ‘momentum’ written all over it. It’s the kind of event that can give that playoff preparation an extra layer of experience. It can also kick-start a midseason stall. For both the Riverside Rapids and Gleneagle Talons — the two senior girls AAA squads who’ve made appearances among the provincial Top-10 poll this season — the Centennial tourney is a major test. The two squads kick-off the 16team series on Thursday, 9:30 a.m. when Gleneagle plays No. 2-ranked Handsworth in the blue gym, and Riverside faces Kelowna at 10 a.m. in the red gym. Terry Fox, the other local team in competition, plays No. 3 South Kamloops at 3:15 p.m. For the Rapids, who were tied with Kelowna in the latest ratings at No. 8 in B.C., the aim will be to add another layer onto a fairly hefty resume. “It’s a great chance to play four games in 48 hours against some of the best in the province,” noted Riverside coach Paul Langford. “It’s a big test, but all the teams look forward to it.” The Rapids are coming off a huge test last week, when they went 0-3 in Chilliwack’s tourney, running into a trio of fellow Top-10 members. They fell 60-52 in overtime to Handsworth, where Vanessa Gee

returned to the lineup and scored 16 points in about half a game of action. In their second match, the Rapids squared off against Kelowna for the third time this season, and lost 64-54. Desha Puri was the top Rapids shooter with 13 points. They closed it out with a 70-64 defeat at the hands of No. 5-rated Argyle, where Puri tallied 15 points and Gee chipped in 13. “It was the first time we’ve been healthy this year and had a full lineup,” Langford said. “We got to do some different things but we weren’t able to pull out a win.” Having both Shae Sanchez and Gee back in green-and-white should be a big boost for the No. 8-ranked Rapids. Gleneagle, meanwhile, captured the Archbishop Carney Classic girls tourney title on Saturday, edging the host Stars 47-39 in the final. Grade 10 guard Brittani Yee led Gleneagle with 13 points. It came on the heels of wins over Sahali (45-33) and Kitsilano (51-33), where Yee topped all shooters with 17 and 12 points, respectively. Her efforts earned her tourney MVP honours, while Grade 12 sister Breanna was named to the first all-star team. Also turning in standout work for the Talons were Jenna Bentley and Chiara Bordignon on defence. The Top 10 continues with games on Friday, with the final slated for a 4:30 p.m. tip-off on Saturday.

HOW IT WORKS

WHO CAN BENEFIT?

Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) is a highly sophisticated, nontoxic and non-invasive therapy that uses light energy from both superluminous and laser diodes. When placed in contact with the skin, this energy safely penetrates the tissue. At an intracellular level, the light is transformed into biochemical energy. Cells use this energy to repair and regenerate themselves, enhancing the body’s natural healing process.

BioFlex Low Intensity Laser Therapy is an effective solution for musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions, dermatological problems and the healing of open wounds. BioFlex therapy can safely increase the rate of recovery and help patients reduce the need for pain medication. BioFlex also has the ability to promote rapid recovery post surgery. The beneficial effects of LILT are cumulative over the course of a series of treatments.
