Time to liven up streets? City looking at ways to expand vending, entertainment BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Things have come full circle at the New Westminster Police Soccer Camp. Those who were once students are now the teachers. Constables Lara Dewitt and Jen Deacon attended the camp as youngsters in the ’80s. Now, both have served three years with New Westminster Police and are back at the camp as coaches. “It started in ’81, and I was there shortly thereafter, and I went through until they kicked me out,” Dewitt said with a laugh. For Deacon, it was much the same. Both also came back as volunteer coaches in their teens. The 2011 soccer school wrapped on July 22 after a week of soccer fundamentals, games and demonstrations of police fire department equipment. Dewitt and Deacon said they decided to come back to coach for the same reason they wanted to go to the school when they were young – fun. Except instead of learning about passing and what’s inside a

New Westminster city council is looking at ways to liven up city streets. Council has expressed an interest in expanding the city’s street activity program, which was first developed in 1997 to allow street entertainment and some street vending to take place in designated places in downtown New Westminster. “The intent of the program was to enhance street vitality and create employment opportunities for small business operators, while ensuring no business was taken away from existing commercial tenants/owners,” a staff report to council states. “In 2009, the program was expanded to include locations in the downtown and to permit the sale of perishable foods.” After considering the issues, staff recommended that street entertainment (buskers) would remain at current locations in the downtown (excluding the esplanade), but some new regulations would be adopted. These include auditioning before being issued a permit, limiting their time to two hours at any one location and avoiding any “highrisk or unsafe performances,” such as juggling knives or flaming objects. Staff noted that there has been

police cruiser, Deacon and Dewitt get to teach a new generation. “I love my job. I love going to work every day. I love catching bad guys, but this is a week that’s a nice break from that. Instead of always dealing with the negative in people, you get to hang out with a bunch of kids who are here to have some fun,” Dewitt said “Just like us,” Deacon added. “It’s a fun week seeing the kids from start to finish and they have a blast. Just seeing the kids’ faces light up, everything is so cool and so new to them.” Dewitt decided she would one day wear a badge while attending the school, and now, she said, some of the students she is coaching have said the same thing. Dewitt said the highlight for this year’s campers was the police K-9 unit demonstration, though things have changed a bit from when it was her favourite activity at the camp. “When Jen and I were there, it was a big elaborate production. We would be on the field, and suddenly two police cars would come racing through the back lot. There would be fake gunfire. It was awesome,” Dewitt said. “A bad guy would come running across the field, and the dog would chase him and tackle him down. It was a big show, and, as kids, we didn’t realize that it wasn’t real.” And while the K-9 demo has been scaled back for safety reasons, some things have stayed the same, Deacon said, namely Det. Mike McFarlane and Const. Bruce “Chicken Legs” Ballingall as fixtures around the playing fields. Chief Const. Dave Jones has either been coaching or organizing at the school since he joined the force 25 years ago. Now in his first year as chief, Jones is a little bit more behind the scenes. “We’ve been doing it for 31 years, and we’ve almost got it right,” Jones said. “We’re always looking at ways to enhance it.” Jones said he sees a bright future for the school, and year after year, he is always impressed with the commitment of the people who come together to put it on. “A program doesn’t last 31 years without the support of a vast variety of people. I’m talking about sponsors and members and people who coordinate. No one person has run this by themselves for 31 years,” he said. And as long as parents keep lining up at 6 a.m. to register their kids, New Westminster police will be happy to oblige, he added. Jones said the camp is designed to do much more than teach five- to 12-year-olds how to kick a ball. It’s meant to start bringing young individuals together with the police in a positive way, just like it did for Dewitt and Deacon. “Soccer is a part of it, but there is another part, which is that interaction with police and volunteers in a fun setting. That’s what we’re looking for,” he said. www.twitter.com/BrentRichter

Public space: The area outside New Westminster SkyTrain station is being eyed as a possible location for vendors in the downtown neighbourhood.

Streets: Does city need livening up? ◗ continued from page 1

increasing interest in food and non-food vending within the entire city. Inquiries have come from hot dog vendors, painters/ artists, crafters selling homemade goods, a shoe polisher and a flower vendor. A report indicated that proposed changes to the existing street activity program would insist that the vendor not be within 60 metres of the entrance of a business selling a similar product and would expand to include locations outside downtown. If more than one applicant meets all the city’s requirements, a lottery would be held to select the vendor. Staff noted that vendors need to be in locations where there are a lot of pedestrians, where sidewalks are wide enough to accommodate pedestrians and vendors, and where vendors won’t conflict with parking meters or people’s access to parked vehicles. Currently, the street activity program includes vendors and entertainment on the esplanade, Hyack Square and New Westminster SkyTrain station on Eighth Street. Vendors, depending on the merits of the applications, can use some other downtown locations. Under the revised program, food or nonfood vendors would be considered outside the New Westminster and Columbia

SkyTrain stations, Hyack Square, outside the police station, at 351 East Colombia St. in Sapperton and at New Westminster Public Library plaza. While other locations in the downtown would be evaluated on their merits, the esplanade would be excluded. Coun. Betty McIntosh noted that an existing non-food vendor has been able to use the area outside the Fraser River Discovery Centre, but that area will be off limits under the proposed recommendations. While she agrees that food vendors shouldn’t be permitted at that location, McIntosh questioned why a non-food vendor wouldn’t be allowed. Coun. Bill Harper said River Market has been extremely concerned about food vendors as they compete with the market’s tenants. Lisa Spitale, the city’s director of development services, said the city didn’t allow any vendors on the esplanade before River Market closed for renovations. She said the assumption was that once the market reopened, the city would return to its practice of not allowing vendors on the esplanade. The changes proposed in the staff report won’t be implemented this year. Council tabled the report and will discuss it at a later date.

Are mid-rise buildings safe? New Westminster looks at fire safety issues surrounding six-storey wood frame buildings

BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

A fire that destroyed a residential complex under construction in Richmond has provided some lessons for other municipalities considering six-storey wood frame buildings. A six-storey residential building that was under construction in Richmond was destroyed by fire in May. Richmond Fire-Rescue had to call in firefighters from other jurisdictions to help fight the blaze on Cambie Road. New Westminster’s development services and fire departments recently provided a staff report to city council about fire safety and other concerns about six-storey wood-frame building construction. They aren’t opposed to this type of construction but want the city to be aware of some concerns and ways of addressing those concerns. Frank Durante, the city’s manager of building inspections, said the provincial government enacted new regulations in 2009 that permitted mid-rise wood-frame buildings. The B.C. Building Code now includes provisions for mid-rise wood-frame buildings around matters such as sprinkling, height limitations, size limitations, exterior clad-

ply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The B.C. Day weekend is, historically, one of the most deadly periods on B.C. roads – as many as 1,800 crashes, on average, happen around the province on the long weekend. Some of those are minor fender-benders, but far too many result in death or permanent injury. This weekend, remember that a simple “blip” is all it takes to turn someone’s life – perhaps even your own – from ordinary to tragic.

That’s great news, but the sad fact remains that far too many people still lose their lives for no reason other than innattention, or excessive speed, or sim-

IN MY OPINION

A message to the thieves Dear Editor:

Attention power washer thieves: I just wanted to thank you very much for teaching me a valuable lesson. You guys are so sneaky, you trespassed onto my property, broke into my garage and stole my power washer, the whole time I was in the yard. You must be very proud of your accomplishments and have such a fulfilling life. Good for you! Thieves, I just wanted to let you know, that due to you being such pilferers (you might have to look that word up), I decided that this would be an amazing opportunity to inform my fellow Queen’s Park residents that there are very talented criminals around and they should shut their garage doors (day and night) and make sure that all their possessions in their yards should be locked up. How hard is it to put a chain and lock on a lawnmower or bike? We wouldn’t want to assist you imbeciles

obtaining easier purchases of drugs. Important information (Thieves, if you can read, you can skip this paragraph): Homeowners, make sure you have the ID numbers on all your expensive power tools, household accessories and recreational equipment. House insurance will cover items that have ID numbers. The police were very helpful in this matter and were delighted when I informed them that I do have the ID number for my power washer. Yeah, I did report it, losers. They also informed me that, due to this crime and others that you and your fellow degenerates have committed in New Westminster, they will be monitoring our neighborhood more closely. Thank you for helping make Queen’s Park a safer place to live. P.S. You forgot the hose, and knowing that you won’t get that tiny extra piece of crack makes me smile. Your mothers must be very proud of you. Name withheld, New Westminster

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Wind energy is a good plan

Dear Editor:

I was pleased to discover, and quite recently, that B.C. now gets some of its electricity from B.C. wind farms. B.C. was the last province in the country to get wind farms despite having some of the best locations for wind energy in the country. However, I was not nearly as pleased to find out how much electricity is flowing into our homes from coal-fired generators in the United States and Alberta. I do understand that buying cheap coal power from outside B.C. at night, when demand is low and the supply is high, helps to keep our B.C. electricity rates low (coal-burning plants are apparently difficult to shut down once they are at operating temperature, so they keep them running all the time). But if we’re purchasing coal power just because it’s cheap and available, aren’t we just as guilty of polluting the air as those who burned the coal? Energy from the wind is clean and free, and it’s not going to leave a big environmental problem for our kids and grandkids to sort out. The same cannot be said for the energy from burning coal. That should make it obvious which energy path we should be pursuing. Wind energy seems like an ideal energy source for B.C., and we’re fortunate to have it as one of our clean energy options. Marney Hogan, Langley

Don’t miss ballot deadline

Dear Editor:

It is critically important that all British Columbians are fully informed about the new deadline to submit their HST referendum ballots. We wrote to B.C.’s chief electoral officer to ask for a two-week

extension to the July 22 deadline because of the mail delays caused by the Canada Post lockout, and Elections B.C. agreed that an extension was necessary. The new deadline to return HST ballots is Friday, Aug. 5 at 4:30 p.m. However, this deadline is for ballots to arrive at Elections B.C., not to simply be postmarked by then, as one might expect. For this reason, we would encourage anyone who has not yet exercised their right to participate in this important decision for the future of B.C. to do so right away. We would also encourage people in rural communities to make use of the Service B.C. drop-off centres if possible. There are 60 locations throughout the province (www.servicebc.gov.bc.ca/locations), and dropping your ballot off reduces the risk it will not be delivered in time or get lost in the mail. It can take up to seven business days for mail to reach its destination within B.C. Together with our New Democrat colleagues, we have travelled around the province and met with countless people who think the HST is an unfair tax that was poorly implemented, and must be scrapped by voting “yes.” When we hear of the Liberals doling out hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to their friends and insiders to help them sell the tax in a $7-million effort to save their political hides, we know British Columbians deserve better.

Clothes send a message

Dear Editor:

More women will be sexually assaulted as a result of styles we see today: overexposure of breasts adding to skin-tight clothing, leaving nothing to the imagination. Just my opinion. Rose Bernard, Burnaby

Dogs: Pets deserve our protection ◗ continued from page 6

he was out fishing. Fortunately, in this case, some other Good Samaritans stepped in when they heard the dog barking and yelping in distress, and put a tent over the SUV and began spraying it with cold water while waiting for help. I don’t care what the reasoning. There’s no excuse for such blatant stupidity, cruelty and downright animal abuse. Dogs are typically

among the most loyal friends a human can have. Given a smattering of affection, they’ll pretty much follow their owners to the end of the earth, and do anything to protect their human from harm. Too bad humans don’t reciprocate. Convicting the owner of animal cruelty seems too little, way too late. It’s not going to bring the dog back, and no punishment handed out in a Canadian court would ever be severe

enough to be a deterrent to others. So all I can do is plead with our readers: Next time you think about bringing your pooch along to a festival or other summer outing … Don’t. Leave your animal at home, where it can stay cool, well hydrated and comfortable. Roxanne Hooper is the assistant editor of the Langley Advance and Maple Ridge Times, sister papers of The Record.

New Westminster Police will be out in force during Vancouver’s Celebration of Light fireworks displays July 30, Aug. 3 and Aug. 6. In a press release from the New Westminster Police Service, acting Sgt. Bruce Carrie said there will be more of a police presence around transit stations commencing in the afternoons, “with an emphasis on maintaining public order, deterring criminal activity and enforcing provincial liquor regulations.” “We want to ensure that the larger volume of citizens travelling to and from the Celebration of Light may do so in a safe and secure manner,” Carrie said. New Westminster police partner with the Vancouver Police Department and South Coast British Columbia Transit Authority Police for the events every year. New Westminster police are also lending their marine unit to patrol English Bay with the Vancouver police and assist where needed.

City explores safety concerns The City of New Westminster is looking into concerns about policing and security in and around the 22nd Street SkyTrain station. Council recently directed staff to follow up on concerns related to security at the station and suggested that the New Westminster police be involved in the discussions. Coun. Jonathan Cote said city officials have received some emails from residents in the Connaught Heights neighbourhood about safety around the 22nd Street SkyTrain station. “We have been getting a fair number of emails,” he said. “We want to get a betfollow us on

Bill Harper said some people have said they feel unsafe or have been accosted when they leave the station, which is in a residential neighbourhood. “Once you are away from the station at night, it is very dark,” he noted. “It is not like you are at Columbia.” Harper said the city needs to discuss what should be done to make people feel safer. www.twitter.com/ TheresaMcManus

Wet mess: Sixth Street looked like “a river flowing down the street” after construction crews hit a water main on Thursday morning.

Flooding on Sixth Street after pipe hit City water supervisor says flood was the result of an accidental hit by contractor BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER editorial@royalcityrecord.com

City of New Westminster engineers resolved a water main break on Sixth Street that flooded basements of local businesses and forced the city to cut water service to the area on Thursday. “It was gushing out of the ground this morning when we came into work and (city engineers) were panicking, trying to figure out where it was coming from,” said James Crosty, owner of Root Source Inc. on Sixth. “It was like a river flowing

down the street.” Crosty said the water was shut off by around 9:45 a.m., but it was doubtful whether some of the businesses would be able to serve customers Thursday. Crosty said neighbouring restaurant Old Bavaria Haus had two feet of water pooled in the basement. Bob Jack, supervisor of water for the city, said it was a fairly routine water main break and repair. “It was just an accident. The contractor hit the pipe. We had it shut off in 20 minutes and back on in an hour-and-a-half,” he said. “These things happen.” Crosty said the water main break has just exacerbated frustrations Sixth Street business owners have had since construction and water main replacements began on the street in May.

THE YEAR OF THE CAT

Every year the population of homeless cats grows. 2011 has been declared “The Year of the Cat” by a broad network of cat welfare advocates. This year they are all working to bring attention to what governments, animal welfare organizations and individuals can do to improve the lives of Canada’s millions of cats. Every year, more and more cats flow into already crowded animal shelters. It is estimated that considerably less than half of all cats admitted

to shelters are ever adopted. Many never make it to a shelter and die painful deaths as strays or are mistaken as feral. For information on the cats featured, contact the Royal City Humane Society: www.rchs.bc.ca or call 604-524-6447 For information on the dogs and rabbits featured, contact the New Westminster Animal Shelter: www.newwestcity.ca or call 604-519-2008.

Good Reasons to Adopt or Foster a Pet • Pet owners tend to be loyal, responsible, secure and committed to having positive relationships. The choice and treatment of pets often reflects a person’s values. • Pet owners are usually involved in the daily exercise of looking after their pets – through the fun and not-so-fun times – a sign of longterm commitment and a realistic outlook on relationships.

• Pet owners have better general health. Having the company of a pet is a major stress-buster. A pet can make you laugh or offer comfort. When stress is relieved there’s also a drop in tension – and that can make for a happier life. • Pet owners are more likely to have lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol, and are often more physically active. This can lead to a healthy, long-lasting life.

Summer sizzlers

BY STEPHANIE KARNOSH CONTRIBUTOR editorial@royalcityrecord.com

After the long rainy spring and early summer, the sun is finally shining. For book lovers, that means lazy hours reading on the beach, by a pool, or even in a patch of sunshine in your own backyard. Summer is the perfect time to enjoy a thriller that will keep you turning the pages until sunset. For a B.C. flavour, try Still Missing by Chevy Stevens. The debut novel from this Vancouver Island author features a woman held hostage by a psychopath for one terrifying year. Her ordeal will have you gripping your lawn chair in terror. For the beach, Maine by J. Sullivan Courtney and The Three Weissmanns of Westport by Cathleen Schine are made-toorder. Maine follows three generations of women in the Kelleher family during their annual pilgrimage to their seaside cottage. Tense family drama ensues as the four main characters struggle to get along. For something more light-hearted, Cathleen Schine’s novel is a humorous

but heartfelt modern-day retelling of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. For non-fiction aficionados, sip a little history with your lemonade when you savour the saga of Second World War service men who crash into a jungle full of Stone Age tribesmen in Lost in Shangri-La: A True Story of Survival, Adventure, and the Most Incredible Rescue Mission of World War II by Mitchell Zuckoff. If biographies are more your style, kick back with From This Moment On by Shania Twain. Meanwhile, escape the heat and travel to the North Pole in The Magnetic North: Notes from the Arctic Circle by Sara Wheeler. And what summer reading list would be complete without the season’s most sizzling blockbusters? Smokin’ Seventeen by Janet Evanovich, Against all Enemies by Tom Clancy, One Summer by David Baldacci, and Carte Blanche by Jeffrey Deaver are all sure to please fans. Still unsure about what books to pack on your vacation or stay-cation? Drop by the library and ask one of our librarians for more suggestions.

.C. Day is coming up on Monday, Aug. 1, a day on which we take some time to honour our province, its past, present and future. A couple of little bits from our Royal City history seem to be in order to mark this date. There has been a lot of coverage of the New Westminster Fire and Rescue Services’ 150th anniversary this year, but an additional comment about the early Hyack firehall is appropriate. This hall sat on Columbia Street between Sixth Street

and Church Street, though closer to Church, on the same side as today’s police station. Over its lifetime, it became to the town and its residents far more than just a fire hall. Many important meetings were held in this hall, as well as performances and concerts, parties and gatherings, events of social and cultural importance. It was a welcoming place for special visitors to the city, a place to gather after a funeral, before moving on to the cemetery, and even a place for early oral school exams, at which family and friends attended to see how students did on particular subjects. Because this was a relatively small, simple wooden structure, it seemed to disappear among the larger multi-storeyed, brick and stone structures that sur-

Keg site with some small buildings and businesses on Columbia and Eighth completing the scene. What was being contemplated at the time is not the curious part of this item, but rather the extent of coverage of what was being considered. The city was to install on a tall pole a 450-candlepower lamp, very powerful for its day, at the Eighth and Front waterfront spot where it would serve as a welcoming direction beacon for incoming shipping. It was considered that it would also cast useable light for the whole area from Front Street to Begbie Street effectively lighting up the entire corner. Today lighting such as this is commonplace, but in 1886 this would have been hugely dramatic. Happy B.C. Day!

rounded it, and some are surprised to learn that it remained in action until it was destroyed with the rest of downtown in the city’s Great Fire of 1898. An intriguing photograph taken during that blaze shows a tongue of flame descending on the hall, basically only its cupola and finial visible in the picture, with the caption “the last of the Hyack Hall.” In almost a blink of an eye, it vanished into history. Another local bit of history takes us back to the fall of 1886 and a street junction that many will recognize, where Eighth Street used to connect to Front Street. Today this would be at the very back of Hyack Square. Beyond this were docks along the river’s edge, while to one side was the early wooden train station. This is today’s

Junior ’Bellies move on to final

BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Now comes the hard part. The New Westminster Salmonbellies got by the first round of B.C. Junior Lacrosse League playoffs, downing the persistent Delta Islanders 11-7 in Game 4 of their best-of-five semifinal series at Ladner Arena on Wednesday. Daniel McQuade got back into the lineup and made an immediate impact, scoring New Westminster’s first two goals after Delta had opened the scoring in the last three playoff outings. McQuade finished with a game-high seven points, including an assist on Brandon Goodwin’s hat trick goal and eventual game-winner late in the middle period. The victory gave New Westminster the playoff series win 3-1 over Delta. The Salmonbellies will now await the outcome of Saturday’s Game 3 between the Coquitlam Adanacs and the Victoria Shamrocks. The undefeated A’s currenty lead that best-of-five series 2-0 following lopsided wins over the fourthplace ’Rocks. Game 3 is at the Poirier Recreation Centre in Coquitlam on Saturday. Game begins at 2:30 p.m. In Ladner, Frankie Scigliano was stellar in goal, stopping 48 Islander shots as Delta outshot the visitors by a wide margin 55-43, including 21-12 in a desperate attempt to comeback in the final frame. Right-siders Tyler Digby and Keegan Bal both had big nights. Digby tallied his second consecutive hat trick, while Bal accounted for five points, including

Paul vanPeenen/THE RECORD

A blur of finesse: New Westminster Salmonbellie righthander Keegan Bal, in white, had two goals and three assists in a Game 3 loss to Delta on Tuesday. Bal garnered another five points in Wednesday’s 11-7 win over the Islanders, giving him a total of 14 points in four playoff games to date. his second power-play goal in the post season. Goodwin also collected five points on the left side, while partner Mark Negrin had a pair of goals in the game. “I think we’re playing well right now,” said New Westminster head coach Dan Perreault. But getting into the B.C. junior finals is the least of New Westminster’s worries. Now comes the seemingly impossible task of defeating the juggernaut Adanacs in a seven-game final series. New Westminster met the A’s three times in regular season play and came out on the losing side in each outing. The first was a 9-4 loss in the league opener.

with the way we played (Coquitlam),” said Perreault. “I think it’s going to be a series that comes down to good defence and good goaltending. … But it’s a seven-game series and it starts with Game 1.” That opening game could come as early as Wednesday, Aug. 3, if the Adanacs sweep the Shamrocks on Saturday. “You work hard all year for a opportunity to get into the western final. It’s what we wanted to have and we’re looking forward to the challenge,” Perreault said. “Anything can happen in a series. We know what is ahead is the Minto Cup, which everyone strives for.”

More lacrosse near and far this holiday weekend Queen’s Park Arena will be the venue for the B.C. Intermediate provincial lacrosse championships this weekend. New Westminster must be considered the favourite in the A division, having won the regular season convincingly with a 21-3-0 record. In the B division, New Westminster, runnerup to North Division winner Coquitlam, both with 15-3-0 records, should be the frontrunners in the other category. The provincials kick off today (Friday) with New West taking on Port Coquitlam at 9 a.m. The intermediate A Salmonbellies play the night game at 8 p.m. against their crosstown nemesis from Coquitlam. A full slate of A and B games run Saturday

and Sunday, with the first game starting at 9 a.m. and the last match scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. The medal games will take place all day on the B.C. Day holiday Monday, beginning with the B division consolation final at 8:30 a.m. The gold-medal finals kick off in the afternoon, with the B final set for 3 p.m. and the A final to follow at 5:30 p.m.

National jamboree in Ontario

The B.C. peewee and bantam boys’ teams will be back East in Whitby, Ont. for the annual Commissioners national lacrosse championship jamboree, running from July 31 to Aug. 6. Nicholas Hannay, Erik Maas and William Malcolm will represent New Westminster on

the peewee provincial squad,. Royal City runners Nolan Duncan, Max Gerhardt, Nathan Macedo, Ryan Wilkinson and goalie Laiton Manuel dominate the boys’ bantam B.C. team.

Junior B provincials this week

The provincial junior B lacrosse championships will be hosted by Kamloops this weekend. League champion Port Moody Thunder will represent the Lower Mainland against Thompson/Okanagan champion Kelowna Raiders and Vancouver Island representative Cowichan Valley Thunder. The host Kamloops Venom will round out the four-team tourney July 29 and 30.

This season’s Western Lacrosse Association rookie of the year race could be one of the most intriguing in a long time. The Burnaby Lakers, which held three of the this season’s first-round draft picks, are holding a clutch of possible first-year contenders. Although first overall pick Matt Beers of last year’s Minto Cup-winning Coquitlam Adanacs was sidelined with an injury all this season, third overall Colton Clark appears to hold the upper hand at this stage of the game. Clark, a late season trade last year to the New Westminster Salmonbellies from Nanaimo, has fit in nicely with Burnaby’s rebuilding club. The 6-3 righthander currently leads the senior A team in scoring and is ninth overall in the league with 19 goals and 32 assists, including two game-winners. But perhaps more importantly, Clark has become an integral part of the Lakers’ league-best power play. Together with sophomore leftsider Dane Stevens and Scott Tinning, Clark has helped the Lakers special teams go from fifth last season to first overall with a 38.78 per cent scoring average on the power play. Clark currently has six goals while on power and a league-high 17 assists. Stevens, a fourth overall pick in 2010, leads the WLA with 16 power-play markers. Tinning has put up another 18 points with Burnaby enjoying the extra man. Another equally strong contender is Burnaby’s third-round steal, Dan Lewis, who has the fourthbest numbers among WLA goalies to date and has arguably played as well or better down the stretch than any one of the first-years, and is steadily improving with each additional outing. Lewis, the Bunaby NOW’s pick as MVP at last ◗Rookie Page 18

Lacrosse game comes with a learning curve for girls BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Last season, Xenia Dumont wasn’t really sure if she was good enough to play for Team B.C.’s bantam girls’ lacrosse team. Fast forward one year and the 14-year-old St. Thomas More Collegiate student is doing just nicely, helping the provincial girls’ team to a share of first place at the Canadian national championships being held at Queen’s Park Arena this week. Dumont has scored four goals and added two assists for B.C.’s to date, and was in the lineup for the gold-medal game against Ontario played Thursday (after Record deadlines). “I didn’t try out last year because, I don’t know, I was on the younger side,” said Dumont after scoring a goal in B.C.’s 3-2 loss to Ontario on Monday. “I lost a lot of confidence playing. I felt I was never doing something right. … I guess I changed.” Part of that change was accepting the challenge of making the B.C. team. New Westminster coach Naomi Walser, an assistant with the B.C. girls’ midget team, said teaching the finer points of the game to the girls takes different methods.

“Girls don’t generally showboat with their stick like the boys do. So with a lot of girls, we start with stick skills,” said Walser, who grew up playing lacrosse in Ontario before settling on the West Coast 15 years ago. “(Girls) are learning to be fluent with both hands.”

What’s interesting is watching the dynamic unfold and how girls react when they know they can do a skill well, Walser said. “When (learning) comes, it opens up a whole new opportunity for adventure for them,” she said. The proof is evident.

year’s Minto Cup championships in Coquitlam, has posted an 8.32 goals against average and a .825 save percentage, despite recording a 4-6-1 record in his first season in the senior league. Last week in Victoria, Lewis was easily the team’s best player again, stopping 55 shots in an 11-6 loss. His asset to the team is not just restricted to stopping the ball either, as he has contributed to the Burnaby offence as well, assisting on 11 Laker goals in 13 games. Lewis also leads the Lakers in three-star balloting after last weekend’s third-star mention against the Shamrocks. Another first-year keeper that is bound to garner votes is 6-7 former Burnaby junior Brodie MacDonald, a second overall draft pick of the Langley Thunder. In 12 games this season, MacDonald has a 5-

Suns shine in 3-on-3

2-2 record, while posting an 8.74 goals against and a .818 save percentage. MacDonald is currently seventh overall in threestar voting, one point ahead of Lewis. Chris Seidel, a backup to Lewis with the junior Adanacs last season, has a 5-3 record with the Maple Ridge Burrards, which took him third overall in the 2011 draft. Fourth overall pick Robbie Campbell has put up a point a game in 13 outings this season for the senior Adanacs and has five goals on 16 shots coming out of the back end. Second-rounder Riley Loewen of Burnaby hasn’t really lit the senior league on fire after a stellar junior career, but is currently in 21st place in WLA scoring with the Maple Ridge Burrards. Other picks with their star on the rise are thirdround Langley defender Nick Bilic, who has played in all 16 games for the Thunder. The former

Burnaby junior has five goals on 15 shots, including one game-winning tally. Burnaby’s first-round, fifth overall pick, Scott Jones, while getting into the Laker lineup late this season, has six goals in his first nine games, including three on the power play. But perhaps the player who will garner the most attention from just a halfdozen WLA games this season is 2010 first overall pick Kevin Crowley. The former New Westminster junior star sat out last season before being dealt to the senior Salmonbellies from Burnaby in the offseason. In just six games to date, Crowley, who plays pro field lacrosse back east as well, has scored 14 times, including three game-winners, while averaging four points per outing. Crowley has also been named a game star in all but two of the six league games he’s played to date.

Laurette Ticong of New Westminster shared a surprising under-15 girls’ title at Basketball B.C.’s Step Up Your Game 3-on-3 basketball tournament in Richmond last week. Playing with friends Leilani Carney, Dyniel Rabang and tournament MVP Nikko Sahagun, the Suns went 6-0, beating Deja Vu 8-5 in the tournament final.

Basil was a life-long Burnaby resident who grew up in the Deer Lake area. He attended Douglas Road School and Burnaby South High School. Basil served in Europe with the Canadian Army in World War II and was a 36-year member of the Burnaby Fire Department, retiring with the rank of Assistant Chief in 1982. Basil was predeceased by his wife Joi. He is survived by his children Ken, Doug, Janet and David, and his grandchildren Allison, Tristan, Molly, Trevor, Andrew and Nick.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Ah, romance – Sunday (and the weeks ahead) bring a light, friendly, flirtatious, fun kind of attraction that you’ve never quite experienced before. (But you will, many times in the eight years ahead.) Depending on your age and situation, romance could be replaced by creative surges, sports, vacation, joys with children, or speculative pursuits. Remember, don’t start anything important before Aug. 26 – except this weekend’s love affair. (It will turn into a puzzler, but still worth it.) Tackle routine chores Monday/Tuesday. Relationships bless and puzzle, Wednesday onward. Taurus April 20-May 20: Delay big new starts until Aug. 26 onward. A sweet, beneficial aura settles over your home life, property issues, gardening, retirement plans, security concerns, and with parent-children issues and projects. (These are especially lucky Sunday.) Though you might feel a bit sluggish, the weeks ahead will be very active. Themes of beauty and love toy with your thoughts, like the breeze with a curtain, especially Monday/Tuesday. Old flames allure, then are gone. You can accomplish important (not new) chores Wednesday to Saturday, but be diplomatic, co-operative Friday/Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: This week starts with a great weekend (July 30 and 31). Love and society’s approval seem to mix, though this takes place on a light, friendly note rather than with romance’s mad flush. Your conscience is pleased. A trip pleases, a friendship could blossom, Sunday or Wednesday/Thursday (and all month). Still, certain “disagreements” of belief, religion, law, philosophy lurk, and could spring out swiftly, Monday, Thursday or Friday. You’re prone to make casual comments which others take seriously. Start no new projects before Aug. 26 – they would fail. Money’s coming – bank it!

AIM FOR WHAT YOU WANT

2060

Cancer June 21-July 22: Start nothing new before Aug. 26. Stick with ongoing projects and relationships, or reprise past ones. (An acquaintance from the past might contact you.) The weeks ahead hold good money luck, especially in the spheres of property, family and friends. (Friends and conventions are excellent conduits to employment or more clients his year – to June 2012 – if you’re seeking. But wait until Aug. 26 onward to seek the new. ) That money luck might “show up” Sunday, Monday or Thursday. Wednesday starts seven weeks of sexual magnetism! Romance (only) beckons Friday/Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Careful until Sept. 19 – legal matters can work against you. In far travel, international, cultural, educational and ethical areas, work with institutions and civil servants – otherwise, these zones can restrict or burden you. For the immediate few weeks ahead – to Aug. 26 – avoid starting any major new project. (Then, from Aug. 26 to Sept. 19, form plans to take significant action in these zones – far travel, etc. – during the late September to Nov. 10 period.) Despite all these “wait” messages, your charisma, energy and mood climb mightily now, especially Sunday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Avoid initiating new projects, relationships or broad lifestyle changes before Aug. 26, especially this week. (This week runs smoothly, but the indecision that a “new start” would cause could be deep and have repercussions beyond this month.) In general, you’re a bit tired for several weeks ahead. Spend this time contemplating, resting, renewing old acquaintance, resolving old hurts and putting your emotional and spiritual worlds on an even keel. You’re wise now, can understand things that eluded you in previous years. A social contact will pique your sexual interest soon.

July 31 - Aug. 6, 2011

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new before Aug. 26. Soon (next week onward) welcome faces from the past will enter, among them, perhaps, a former light romance. But this week (especially Sunday!) the accent is fully on present company – social delights, light romance, popularity, organizations, politics, conventions. Don’t make any big new relationships, though. You might have to make a choice over the month ahead, between intimacy/sex and friendship. Bosses and VIPs are impatient, temperamental for seven weeks: be diplomatic! You’re the star, “in charge” Wednesday/ Thursday! Speak up! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start nothing new, important before Aug. 26. Stick with ongoing people and projects, or reprise those from the past – especially in career and status zones. A former boss, investor, or career role might return soon. (Since you’re in a year of lucky money opportunities, this “return” might have a good money benefit.) Your reputation is on the line, so have safety nets in place: Plan B, extra supplies, back-up machinery, etc. Keep your appointment calendar “slim.” People in charge, authorities and parents treat you favourably. Avoid legal hassles for seven weeks. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: A sweet, mellow month of enlightenment, travel, culture, learning and love lies ahead. You understand the need for a social or moral code. Embrace wider learning, the hint of idea, rather than specifics (these can be all awry). Re-check details, addresses, money amounts now to Aug. 26 – and start no new projects or relationships before then. If you’re a student, wait until Aug. 26 onward to make you final choice of courses, if you can. Sunday’s remarkable – love is available, so is a great teacher! Ambition succeeds Monday. Hopes and popularity soar Wednesday/Thursday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start no new projects or relationships before Aug. 26. A very interesting month faces you,filled with quiet but potent mysteries, possibilities, financial keys, golden secrets, intimate bonds and lifestyle choices. And yet – you shouldn’t start anything new! The viable stuff will come from the past, or from ongoing situations. Keep an eye on indecision, missed deadlines, miscalculated profits…but do delve deep and see what’s there. (Especially Sunday, when money is “in the ground.”) Someone seriously contemplates letting you into their privacy. Hopes rise at week’s end. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The general accent lies on opportunity, fresh horizons, partnerships, agreements and disputes, negotiation and litigation. You generally like this area, you feel a certain life force or vivacity here. Sunday could be spectacular in these things – be open, forward, approach others, be diplomatic, eager to join. In some cases, love occurs! Remember, though, not to start anything new and important before Aug. 26. So those opportunities might come from the past, or the fresh air come from breaking old chains. Secrets yield profits Monday. Higher-ups are watching Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Separate routine chores from new, difficult or unfamiliar ones. Tackle only the former before Aug. 26. You might have to clean up an old mess, or re-assume a former employment role. A nice reward accompanies these activities. Co-workers are pleasant, affectionate. If someone offers you a different job Sunday, grab it! But DO NOT buy machinery, a car, electronics, etc. – even clothes – before Aug. 26. Your romantic scene is going to heat up soon. That’s better than chasing a money gamble that lures you. An ex-partner or spouse might appear – it’s short. Secrets midweek. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
