City readies fleet for snow, ice season BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Fourteen snowplows, five backhoes, four snowblowers, three hydro excavators and 960 tonnes of salt in two sheds. Throw in 14,000 litres of brine mix and the City of Richmond is ready for more than the 12 Days of Christmas when it comes to tackling this season’s winter storms. The city’s public works department presented a snow and ice response report to city councillors this week, detailing its fleet and armoury as well as its plan to fight whatever the winter throws Richmond’s way. Around 960 metric tonnes of road salt — the city used 923 last season during seven snowfalls and 14 frost “events” — are now in storage at two sites, the public works yard on Lynas Lane and at Sidaway Road in East Richmond. The city has also installed five road temperature sensors across the city, with plans being made for two more. The sensors, according to the city’s roads manager Ben Dias, are monitored 24 hours a day to provide early indications of frost forming on the roads. $

No extreme winter conditions forecast: Weather expert

ALAN CAMPBELL/RICHMOND NEWS

Richmond has road sensors ready.

City staff also continuously monitor Richmond-specific weather forecasts and have received a long-term forecast from Northwest Weathernet for the winter, which predicts there will be no extreme weather on either end of the scale. “The record low Arctic sea ice will have some minor impact in making the eastern portions of North America colder/snowier, which means a bit less wet and cold for us,” stated the forecast. Dias said the city will ramp up its public outreach during the winter via social media to keep people as informed as pos-

Heavy winter snowfall can cause challenges for some Richmond residents such as the elderly and persons with illnesses or disabilities. Richmond’s Snow Angels can offer voluntary assistance with tasks such as snow removal. The Snow Angels program is activated during major snowfall events. This is defined as 48 hours of continuous snowfall and a minimum of 15 centimetres of snow. Registering to be a Snow Angel organization is easy; simply contact the city’s parks programs coordinator at 604-2441250 or email paul.brar@richmond.ca. Residents needing assistance can access the Snow Angels registry in several ways during a major snowfall: Phoning Richmond City Hall at 604-276-4000, the city’s community services department at 604-244-1208, or their local community centre. The registry can also be accessed online at www.richmond.ca/winter.

Boy’s Christmas drive explodes across region BY YVONNE ROBERTSON

yrobertson@richmond-news.com

In most circles, Reese Shelly is your average third grader known simply by his name. But in a growing number of groups, he’s called a “pyjama ambassador”. Reese, and more and more of his friends including four-yearold sister Kiera, spread the word through school announcements and assemblies, collecting donated new pyjamas to be dropped off at locations across the Lower Mainland for the third annual Christmas Pyjama Drive. “A lot of my friends think its pretty cool and want to join,” said the curly-haired and freckled eightyear-old, who is the CEO and president of the drive. Reese is also the son of Richmond’s Browns Socialhouse co-owner Todd Shelly, which celebrates Pyjama Drive Day in support of the campaign on Sunday, Dec. 9. Those who show up at any Lower Mainland Browns location with pyjamas to donate will receive 50 per cent off their meal. The idea for a pyjama drive came from a conversation between Reese and his mother Erin Shelly. In an attempt to explain charity to her then six-year-old son, Shelly mentioned that some children don’t receive Christmas presents. To

Reese Shelly, 8, created a pyjama drive for those in need

CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

Reese Shelly, 8, and his sister Kiera, 4, are raising awareness for his Christmas Pyjama Drive. They receive pyjama donations and deliver them to Lower Mainland Christmas bureaus for those in need. which Reese asked, not even pyjamas? “I thought it was a really neat connection for Reese to make,” said Shelly. “It’s a cozy Christmas morn-

ing tradition we’ve always done. We open the pyjamas Christmas Eve so the kids snuggle into them for Christmas morning. “But it’s a luxury, which are

always the first to get cut.” Reese’s question prompted the two of them to research if there were any drives dedicated to the donation of pyjamas in the Lower Mainland. Discovering there weren’t, they decided to start one, partnering with the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, which serves Richmond, the Surrey Bureau and the Delta Assist. In the first year, Shelly sent out emails to friends and family, and managed to collect 365 pairs — a number which rose to 1,422 last year. Through Browns’ promotions and press publicity, several Lower Mainland elementary schools have jumped on board, acting as a drop off point for donations and having kids raise awareness through posters. The contributions now include other bedtime paraphernalia such as teddy bears and robes. “It’s really exploded,” said Shelly. “It’s such a simple, comforting idea. And it’s really shown Reese a lot about the generosity of the community. People really came when called.” For more information, visit facebook.com/The.Christmas.Pyjama.

Hockey coach pleads guilty to assaulting player in tripping case BY CASSIDY OLIVER The Province

The lawyer for a minor league hockey coach who infamously tripped a 13-year-old Richmond boy last summer during a postgame handshake will be arguing for a non-custodial sentence when his client appears for sentencing in January. Martin Joseph George Tremblay, the coach of the University of B.C. Hornets, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of assault stemming from the June 23 incident at UBC’s

Thunderbird Arena, which left the boy nursing an injured wrist. The incident, which occurred following a minor hockey championship game, was put on YouTube by a parent and has since been viewed globally. In the footage, Tremblay, whose team won the game 5-4, is seen moving through the postgame handshake line. He’s seen sticking out his right foot, which caused one player and then a second to fall to the ice. Afterward, Tremblay, 48, is seen raising his middle finger to the

crowd. The 13-year-old boy injured his wrist in the fall. Tremblay was initially charged with two separate counts of assault following his arrest. They were rolled into the single count of assault, to which he pleaded guilty Tuesday in Richmond Provincial court. “He feels terrible about what happened,” his lawyer, Robert Bellows told media Tuesday. “It’s had consequences for the boys, it’s had consequences for him. It’s been a very difficult time for him.”

Bellows added that Tremblay wrote letters of apology to both boys expressing his remorse. The letters were handed to the Crown on Tuesday as part of the day’s proceedings. Bellows said he will be arguing for a non-custodial sentence when Tremblay appears for sentencing Jan. 31. He said he’s not sure what the Crown will be seeking in terms of punishment. “It doesn’t warrant jail sentence, in my opinion,” he said. Read more: www.theprovince. com.

News Alleged gay-bash brothers face assault conviction BY SUSAN LAZARUK The Province

Two Richmond brothers charged with beating two gay men while allegedly yelling homophobic slurs at them should be convicted of assault causing bodily harm, court heard Wednesday. Ravinder “Robbie” Bassi and Parminder “Peter” Bassi are on trial on the charges, arising from an attack outside the Keefer Street condo of David Holtzman and Peter Regier in June 2010. Crown prosecutor Kirstin Murphy told Vancouver Provincial Court that the brothers were identified by the victims and two

witnesses, and photos of them running from the area were captured on surveillance video. The two brothers have pleaded not guilty. The Crown, which has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the two attackers were the Bassi brothers, told court the victims had given statements to police describing their attackers before police released a photo of the suspects. She said later descriptions after the release were consistent with the earlier statements and the identification of the brothers weren’t influenced by the photos. The Bassi brothers’ lawyers on Tuesday tried to have the police photo thrown out of evidence, arguing the photo was too dark and grainy for an ex-boss of Ravinder’s to be cer-

tain it was him. But Judge Raymond Low allowed the photo to stand as evidence. Court also heard more details about the attack. Holtzman, who died earlier this year of a heart attack, and Regier had returned home from a concert to find a man, whom they allege was Ravinder Bassi, urinating on their condo. Holtzman said, “Do you really have to do this here? This is my home.” Holtzman said Ravinder asked him if he was a “fag” and if he was serious. “Yes, I’m a fag, and, yes, I’m serious,” court heard Holtzman replied.

Massey tunnel project open houses start next week BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

The provincial government is preparing to kick off the first round of public consultation into replacing the 53-year-old Massey Tunnel. The tunnel has about 10 to 15 years left in it before it will start to need major repairs, with any replacement project taking around 10 years to plan, construct and finish. Open houses begin in Delta on Dec. 1 at the Delta Town & Country Hotel, before the people of Richmond get their first bite at the consultation on Tuesday, Dec. 4, from 6 to 9 p.m. (presentation at 8 p.m.) at the Sandman Vancouver Airport Hotel, 10251 Saint Edwards Dr. The next open house in the city is on Tuesday, Dec. 11, from 6 to 9 p.m. (presentation at 8 p.m.) at the Richmond Olympic Oval. Other open houses are planned throughout the month in Cloverdale and South Surrey. The existing four-lane tunnel opened in

1959 and now carries more than 80,000 vehicles each day under the south arm of the Fraser River. It’s the only major Fraser River crossing in Metro Vancouver with a single lane of traffic in the off-peak direction during the daily commute. The launch of the public consultation is the first step to help determine the most appropriate solution to meet the growing needs of families, commuters, businesses and others who rely on the crossing. The consultation program will include a variety of methods for the public and stakeholders to be involved and provide input, including online engagement, stakeholder meetings and five public open houses. The ministry will use this input to develop a short-list of potential replacement options for additional public consultation in the new year. Premier Christy Clark announced at last month’s Union of B.C. Municipalities confer-

ence the government’s intention to replace the tunnel. “Traffic congestion is one of the main concerns of our region,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “Over time, the Massey Tunnel has been a major negative factor affecting the efficient movement of both people and goods around our region and in our city.” The Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, Mary Polak, said the status quo is simply “not an option.” Delta’s mayor Lois Jackson said Delta is the community probably most affected by tunnel congestion and it is a “great relief ” to see a replacement plan. “For several years, we have been lobbying for something to be done and I would personally like to thank Premier Christy Clark and Transportation Minister Mary Polak for listening and taking decisive action in moving forward with this vital link,” said Jackson.

Man, 23, found burned to death BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

The remains of a body found in a burned-out car in Vancouver on the weekend have been identified as a 23-year-old Richmond man. The Vancouver Police Department have launched a murder investigation after Matthew Johnathan Hall was found last Saturday night as firefighters put out a car fire on Carolina Street just off Terminal Avenue. Hall was known to police, say the VPD, which believes the killing was targeted. The case is now being treated as Vancouver’s ninth homicide of the year.

Stand-off suspect named

The man who died in hospital after a police standoff outside the Starlight Casino in Queensborough has been named as Mehrdad Bayrami, 48, of Richmond. The B.C. Coroners Service issued a press release Tuesday, identifying Bayrami as the man shot Nov. 8 after a five-hour long incident outside the casino, which led to the man suffering a gunshot wound to the body. Police had responded after reports of shots being fired in the casino’s parking lot. Bayrami was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital, but died 10 days later. The newly formed Independent Investigations Office has been tasked to investigate the shooting.

MEMORIAL

World famous ship’s wheel maker passes away BY ANNE-FLEUR KAMST Special to the News

If there is one name that stands out in the maritime history of Richmond, it’s the Lubzinski brothers. Jack and Joseph founded the worldrenowned Marine Products Company, which built high quality ship steering wheels on No. 3 Road back in 1951. Joseph sadly passed away at a Delta hospital Nov. 2, at the age of 85. An intimate celebration of life took place Wednesday, Nov. 21. Before his death, the brothers had poured their heart and soul into the business, running it for more than 50 years until it closed down in 2005. Since then, they continued to contribute to the ship industry with exhibits of their machines and processes at the Maritime Festival in 2011 and 2012. In the wake of Joseph’s death, Jack, now 90, recalled his youngest brother as a persistent person with an iron work ethic. “He was easy to work with. For Joe, it wasn’t a case of quitting at five; he would work until nine or ten, or early in the morning. He made an effort to make things work.” Relentless dedication is something the Lubzinski brothers had in common as they were able to turn one of Richmond’s oldest manufacturers into a thriving business. The mahogany steering wheel they manufactured was used in more than 40 magnetic

The Lubzinski brothers, Jack, left, and the late Joseph, were founders of the Marine Products Company and were world renowned for their ship steering wheels. Their work had been on display at the Maritime Festival for the past couple of years. mine sweepers for the U.S. navy. A job in the ship industry had always been on the cards for Joseph, who quit school at the age of 16 and went on to work on fishing boats at Britannia Shipyard, an area where he spent most of his life.

When Jack jumped in to produce a suitable steering wheel for his brother’s boat, their skills proved complementary. While Jack was devoted to designing and developing innovative products, Joseph ran the shop and travelled the U.S. as a salesman.

“I spent my life going to school, and Joe spent his life working, making it possible for me to go to school,” Jack grinned. He also recalled their special bond started at a young age. With Joseph being the youngest of five boys, Jack spent most time with him as the two of them were often home alone. “Our other brothers got attached to other families, but Joe and I never married, so we stayed attached to each other through building things together,” he said. While Joseph had already spent several months in hospital, his death still came unexpectedly. “He was first admitted when he had trouble breathing,” said Jack. “After that, he had a hard time swallowing, so they put a tube in his stomach. He thought he’d heal soon, but it dragged on for months. And then his nerve condition progressed worse rather than better.” Although Jack is a man of few words — just like his brother — Joseph’s death hits him hard. “I wish he was able to stay with me. I cannot think of anyone else who will want to do what he did,” he said. Nevertheless, the Lubzinski Centre for Innovation — based in Point Roberts — is determined to carry on where the brothers left off, said director Judson Meraw. The non-profit organization wants to further develop their work in both the marine product industry and quantum physics, “with Joe’s spirit with us.”

News City reinforces pedestrian safety BENJAMIN YONG SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Jill Blacklock, ICBC safety manager, handed out pedestrian safety pamphlets Wednesday morning.

BY BENJAMIN YONG Special to the News

Pedestrian casualties are preventable. This is the message Richmond RCMP, the City of Richmond, Richmond Fire-Rescue and ICBC wanted to spread to the public when they kicked off their Fall Pedestrian Safety Campaign Wednesday morning at the Lansdowne Canada Line Station. About a dozen volunteers wearing bright yellow reflective vests handed out reflective armbands and pamphlets with reminders like: remove your headphones and don’t use your cell phone or other electronics while walking; always make eye contact with drivers before crossing the road;

and walk facing traffic if there are no sidewalks. Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said as daylight hours decrease, pedestrian collisions are increasing. A 59-year old Richmond resident was struck and killed on No. 3 road after dusk earlier this month, which is part of a string of incidents that have occurred in recent years. She said the campaign wasn’t in direct response to the fatality, although it strengthens the need for more public awareness. “It’s really unfortunate — even driving here from our office this morning I had people running across the street both in front of me and behind me,” said Turley. “There’s a lot of people who don’t take

the time to make it to the corner of the street to use the crosswalks, and that, of course, increases the likelihood they will get hit. It’s also harder for drivers to see pedestrians because of the glare on the roadway and the increased rain. So, hopefully, we’ll be able to speak to them here today and save some lives.” Jill Blacklock, road safety manager at ICBC, said it’s in pedestrians best interest to take precautions. “When you’re involved in a crash with a car, you’re the one that’s going to be injured.” Blacklock said speaking to people who have been involved in incidents, pedestrians often respond, “I’m sure they saw me, it looked like the driver was slowing down,” while motorists say, “I didn’t see them.” She added that accidents involving pedestrians and cyclists are assessed on their own and it’s not always the driver that is at fault. “There are lots of times, unfortunately, that the pedestrian is 100 per-cent responsible for the crash.

Meter rates set to rise BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

An increased rate for water meter users is one of the highlights of next year’s utility budget for the city. Homeowners will pay anything between $31 and $76 more next year for their water, sewer, garbage and recycling, depending on whether you live in an apartment, townhouse or singlefamily home. But it’s likely the increase to the water meter rates

— which have been low for several years to encourage residents to sign up for metering — that will catch most people’s attention. Those living in singlefamily homes on a metered rate look set to pay almost eight per cent more next year for utilities, up $64.55. People living in similar houses who’re on the flat rate will still be paying more, but will be dealt a smaller increase, up five per cent for an additional $63.19. The reason for the sharper

increase on metered rates is because more people are signing up for the meters, causing revenue to fall. A city council report, presented Monday to city council’s general purposes committee, indicated that almost 70 per cent of single-family homes have now switched over to the meters. And, although the uptake of meters in townhouse complexes is still low, the city anticipates that number to rise dramatically next year as it promotes metering more aggressively. Next year, the city will also expand the current food scraps/organic and blue box recycling service. Many of the utility cost increases come direct from Metro Vancouver and are out with the city’s control. For proposed and estimated rates, yet to be rubber-stamped, visit www. richmond-news.com.

Family Day’s poverty focus

T

he first official B.C. Family Day statutory holiday is on Feb. 11, 2013. Chances are, many of us will be putting our feet up watching TV, going shopping or taking off to the ski slopes for a fun-filled break. However, many of us won’t — we can’t afford to. The Child Poverty Report Card released on Tuesday reveals that B.C.’s child poverty rate is still the worst of any province in Canada — the exception being Manitoba. The number of children estimated to be living in poverty in B.C. in 2010 was 119,000 or about one in every seven B.C. children. About two thirds, or 80,000, of those children lived in the Lower Mainland. Dr. John Millar of the Public Health Association of B.C. said, “poverty robs children of their potential and increases ill health. High rates of income inequality are known to produce higher levels of infant mortality, crime, mental illness, addictions, obesity, and lower levels of education and social mobility and trust. This is a recipe for a very sick society, unless we turn this around.” Imagine: One in seven children in our province lives in poverty, in a province that boasts one of the highest living standards in the world. And consider this: Forget the stereotype of a welfare mom with six kids living in poverty. In 2010, 43 per cent of the poor children in B.C. — 41,300 children — lived in families with at least one adult working full-time, for the full year. Can the situation be changed? Experts say if you adjust the child tax benefits, enhance EI benefits, provide affordable accessible daycare — you can at least make a start. Or, here’s an idea: Take the dollar amount of lost productivity on Family Day and put that towards helping poor kids in B.C. We suspect that might make quite a difference.

CHOICE WORDS

Grey area for mental health The Editor, Having just read an article in the Globe and Mail, “Mother wanted schizophrenic son out of home before fatal fire, inquest told”, I felt compelled to write a letter to inform my fellow Richmond citizens about the challenges many families face, while caring for loved ones with severe mental health problems right here in our city. I have been seeking help for my family and 20-year-old son for many years. Unfortunately, he is too sick to understand he needs treatment and consequently will not seek treatment or apply for disability as in his mind he doesn’t need it. To complicate matters further, if you suffer from severe paranoia, all government agencies are suspect. This brings me back to the case in Coquitlam, which sounded very similar to my situation. The mother in question called the police many times due to safety concerns ... ditto. In short, recommendations such as starting a program in Coquitlam in which a psychiatric nurse and police officer respond to mental health calls together were suggested. We need a similar program in Richmond. I wonder how many people know that, when you phone the emergency mental health line, you reach a machine informing you that you will get a call back within the next hour. Even the police can’t get through! I’ve watched them try. Another issue is Richmond Hospital is short-staffed during the holidays. I was repeatedly asked last year if it was really necessary for my son to be hospitalized when they were short-staffed. Several phone calls later, they conceded and he was hospitalized for two weeks, then released with no follow-up for any of us; apparently he falls into every grey area. With the holiday season fast approaching, my anxiety is heightening. Y. Vineault Richmond

Nod to history’s 2nd place finishers What is it like to be the second smartest person in the world? Let us set the scene. It is England, in the mid-1600s. A decade of strife between Parliament and Crown has left one king headless and his son, Charles II, leading a restored court. London has suffered plague and fire. Science is being born. The Royal Society of London for Improving Natural Knowledge is collecting every clever English-speaking person, and exchanging letters with half the savants of the rest of Europe. At the centre of this is one of history’s odd alsorans, Robert Hooke, the society’s official experimenter. Never heard of him? Neither have about 99 per cent of the people around the world. This is despite the fact that he worked on the theory of gravity, discovered the principles of elasticity, drew the rings of Saturn and craters of the moon, invented a key piece of clockwork, correctly theorized how fossils form, speculated about extinction 150 years before it was confirmed, and identified and named biological cells. Why is someone who worked in so many fields in addition to being a major architect and city planner for London - now a footnote? Because he happened to live and work alongside Sir

Matthew Claxton PAINFUL TRUTH

Isaac Newton. Hooke speculated about gravity and the nature of light at the same time that Newton was formulating his own, more complete and accurate works on the same subjects. What must being Robert Hooke have been like? In his own lifetime he was famous and not exactly considered a dunce. His book Micrographia was a bestselling collection of illustrations and observations made through a microscope, a first glimpse for thousands of people of a world unseen to the human eye. But today everyone has a mental image of Newton, even if it is just the urban legend involving an apple tree. There isn’t even a surviving portrait of Hooke. He is faceless and if not forgotten, deep in shadow. History is scattered with these half-forgotten people. Alfred Russell Wallace developed the theory of evolution independently of Charles Darwin, and Darwin published his Origin of Species largely because Wallace was about to go public himself. Tenzing Norgay was the second person to reach the summit of Mount Everest.

Buzz Aldrin was the second human on the surface of the Moon. Robert Scott was the second person to reach the South Pole, and is largely remembered for not making it back. St. Jude is the other Judas who palled around with Jesus. It is not for nothing that he is the patron saint of lost causes and is known as the saint of last resort. Some of these forgotten almost-got-there-first folks will be remembered better in the future. Wallace’s profile has been on the upswing, and Tenzing Norgay’s name should become more famous as more people realize that getting to the summit of Everest was a team effort, as Edmund Hilary always said. Hooke himself was a discoverer of the lost. Before him, it was thought that fossils were “sports of nature” that formed spontaneously in rocks. But he saw that they were hints to an unknown past. “There have been many other Species of Creatures in former Ages, of which we can find none at present,” he wrote, “and that ‘tis not unlikely also but that there may be divers new kinds now, which have not been from the beginning.” Hooke was a new kind, indeed. Let that kind not be forgotten. Matthew Claxton is a reporter for the Langley Advance.

The Richmond News November 23. 2012 A9

No to ESL for Canadian born The Editor, When are the taxpayers going to jump up and down and say “enough is enough”? Why are we funding the learning of English for children who are born in Canada but speak another language at home, in our school system? Who are the students going without while this is being funded? If families choose to raise their children in cultural and language cocoons, why is it up to the taxpayers to finance their learning of one (or in some cases, both) of Canada’s official languages? My understanding is that there are a number of pre-school programs that are available to children that would be teaching them English. Furthermore, there are TV shows, radio shows, play programs, etc. available that children can access. If the taxpayer were to stop funding the learning of English and it were to become the financial responsibility of families to make sure that their children can speak English, would that make a difference in the attitudes?

Nothing harmonious about pipeline process

The Editor, The Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation (VAFFC) has submitted another late study to rationalize the “truthiness” of the “low impact” of transporting large Panamax tankers with highly flammable and toxic jet fuel into the Fraser River, where they will then unload it and store it in a large tank farm on the south banks of the river upstream of a shipping bottleneck in the river — the George Massey Tunnel. The VAFFC has again shown unmitigated gall and effrontery to claim that the “unmitigated absolute worst case spill” of toxic and flammable jet fuel into the Fraser River estuary is only 40,000 barrels or 6.36 million litres. How can this be when the combined capacity of a 70 per cent laden Panamax tanker unloading at the proposed marine terminal and the 80-million-litre tank farm is over 817,000 barrels or 130 million litres? This is over 20 times more than the figure they used their latest submission. The combined stored combustible and explosive energy in the tank farm and a Panamax tanker is equivalent to more than one million tons of TNT. The condos, 400 metres away from an exploding and burning Panamax tanker and tank farm, would

be devastated by the searing radiant heat, flammable gas cloud, blast overpressure and flying debris. These are unacceptable risks. Jet fuel vapours and air mixture can explode at a temperature as low as 35°C. Before any decision can be made, a System Safety Analysis must be provided to identify the worst case hazard footprints and the risk areas surrounding tanker, marine terminal and tank farm in order to determine the worst case number of deaths and casualties that may occur. VAFFC, BC Environmental Assessment Office and Port Metro Vancouver are ignoring this sleeping, fire breathing dragon in the room. They have not provided a System Safety Report similar to one done for a tank farm in Los Angeles. It identifies the worst case hazard footprints and risk areas. They indicate the number of deaths and casualties that could occur at various distances from the blast and fire. If such a conflagration did occur, consider how much jet fuel would spill into the fragile Fraser River estuary caused by the catastrophic explosions, fires and flying debris from the tank farm, tanker and marine terminal. Surely it must be an order of magni-

Pre-K to Grade 12 Grammar

tude more than the “unmitigated absolute worst case spill” they have assumed. This misleading information and wrong assumption is still apparent in their “Spill Risk in the South Arm of the Fraser River” document that was submitted to BCEAO on June 1, but not posted until Nov. 19 on BCEAO’s website, just after the deadline for any comments that could be submitted by members of their Advisory Working Group that includes representatives from the cities of Delta and Richmond. This highly hazardous project with severe consequences is in the wrong place at the wrong time. YVR jet fuel needs can be met by a pipeline-only solution to existing refineries in Cherry Point, WA and Burnaby. This would dramatically minimize the worst case consequences to the residents nearby and the fragile Fraser River estuary. This non-harmonious environmental review process is a travesty. It must be fixed. James Ronback P.Eng. (retired system safety engineer) Director of VAPOR

The Editor, Richmond should be paving the way for a zero tolerance bully program and begin by making the parent(s) accountable for their children’s actions. At the beginning of the school year, every student and his/her parent(s) should attend an assembly in the gymnasium regarding the zero tolerance rule of the school. Upon an infraction and based on the severity, kick them out of the school and let the parents deal with finding another school to register them in. This would include bystanders who watch, video and encourage any act of bully behaviour. After switching schools a couple or a few times, and if that student continues their behaviour, home schooling would seem to be the final and only option for someone of their type and attitude. We don’t need our kids having to endure fear and these senseless difficulties of

attending school only to be belittled by a distraught coward. With a parent teetering on the edge of having to home-school their child, you will see the parent take action on their bully child where we will see a definite improvement on their attitudes. As for social media, we need to target the provider of that media to become a Bull-E-patrol where any cyber bullying can be reported, monitored and will be dealt with by cancelling their account and barring their IP address from any future accounts. Again, it is holding the parent(s) accountable where the parent’s accounts will be frozen from access due to the same IP address. Sure, there may be ways around it by having their IP address changed or covered up, but the hassle to do so would make them more cautious and deal with their bully child. Andrew Caras Richmond

Solution — it takes two to tango The Editor, I submit that there is a simple way to distinguish between bullying (behaviour) from ordinary playground altercations — ask all the participants (separately)

Community Popular Gold’s gym closes BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

A popular gym closed its doors after giving staff less than 12 hours notice. More than 1,000 customers are understood to be locked out of Gold’s gym at Riverport’s entertainment and leisure complex in southeast Richmond. Gym bosses called all 10 staff members on Sunday night, informing them not to come into work on Monday as the facility would be closed. One staff member, who asked not to be named, said they’d heard rumours that the gym was losing money and that other businesses, such as trampolining firm Extreme Air Park and Planet Lazer, were moving into the building. It’s not known if the gym’s members are on the hook for their already paid memberships. When the News called Gold’s, a security guard who answered said he’d no idea where to direct staff or customers. A call to Gold’s Vancouver gym was then directed to an accountant who asked for questions to be sent via email. No one has answered the questions.

City asks for dyke input

The City of Richmond is in the early stages of developing an overall dike master plan. The first phase of the plan focuses on identifying long-term flood protection

improvements for the Steveston and southern west dike areas. Preliminary concepts have been created and the public is being invited to learn about them and provide feedback. “Richmond’s 49 kilometres of dikes are integral to the city’s flood protection infrastructure, which provides ample protection against current flood threats…,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie in a press release. “The dike master plan will comprehensively address the long-term future protection of Richmond from events such as ocean storm surges, Fraser River freshets, rising sea levels and seismic events, while considering the natural environment and the attractive accessibility of our waterfront.” Phase one preliminary work has identified two concepts for primary dike alignments in the Steveston area and there are several ways the public can learn about the concepts and provide input. There will be two drop-in style open houses; on Dec. 5 and 12, from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Steveston Community Centre, 4111 Moncton St. City representatives will be on hand to talk about the dike master plan and answer questions. Feedback and suggestions on the conceptual dike upgrade options are encouraged. Residents will also find detailed information and may provide feedback on the city’s new public engagement website, www. LetsTalkRichmond.ca or www.richmond.ca.

Mayor joins forces with kids to promote reading BY ANNE-FLEUR KAMST Special to the News

It might be a challenge to silence a room filled with energetic elementary school students, but Mayor Malcolm Brodie succeeded, needing nothing more than a story. Lending his support to the National Reading Campaign, Brodie treated third graders of BC Muslim School and fourth and fifth graders of Willian Cook elementary to an old classic and a contemporary fable during a reading session at

Richmond Public Library Nov. 20. “We invited the mayor because we wanted somebody in a leadership position to set an example for the children,” said Melanie Au, head of Kids’ Place. “The idea behind the national campaign is to get whole families reading, and if children see adults do it, they are encouraged to do so themselves.” Brodie got the audience attentively listening to Robert Munsch’s Mortimer and Nicholas Oldland’s Big Bear Hug, selected to promote the joy of reading and to convey the message that love con-

quers everything. And while students had their ears and eyes wide open, he shared some inspiring words on the importance of literacy. “No matter what you will do later in life, you’ll find pleasure and information in reading.” BC Muslim School’s Alina Malik and Malak Mustafa, both eight years old, are already setting a good example, spending every day with their noses in the books. “I really like reading because the stories are interesting, especially those on girls stuff, magic and fantasy,” said Alina. “We make ourselves smarter by reading,” added Malak. “No matter what you read, fiction or non-fiction, you learn new things, new words.” Literacy indeed is the key to success in life, according to Au. “Readers are brought to places they’ve never gone before,” she said. Books also contain different points of views, encouraging readers to think outside the box, which eventually results in innovation and inventions. “It’s also about hope because stories let you think of the impossible,” she said. As a part of the recently launched “What did you read today?” campaign, the library is also keen to know which book currently occupies residents’ bedside table. While attendees of the mayor’s reading were invited to create buttons with the title of their current reading material, adults are encouraged to participate in an

Community MUSIC

Artist performs to raise funds for youth society BY BENJAMIN YONG Special to the News

The twinkle in his eye and the excitement in his voice that occur when Richmond artist and composer Raymond Chow speaks about art or music makes it hard to believe he’s 71 years old. “I started piano when I was five, started painting at six. Painting has always been my living. When I was 17, there were already three galleries representing my work.” He is hoping the same kind of success can be realized by the young members of the Steveston Artist Society (SAS) that Chow helped establish in 2007, which is why he will be performing at an art auction concert held by the society at Richmond Fraserview Church tonight (Nov. 23). He will also be auctioning 28 pieces of his work to raise money for the SAS. “The SAS was set up to support the venture of emerging artists, younger ones, like my friends’ children who are 12, 13 and 14 years old. Another one is 22. It’s to help them market their art to the cities around the world,” said Chow. One of the group’s more famous art shows was at Lansdowne Centre a few years ago where Chow had a girl dress up as Mona Lisa and another artist paint her. With about a dozen members now, the SAS is made up of pri-

marily painters with some graphic animators and musicians mixed in. “Eventually, the ultimate aim three to five years from now is to form an artist party of artists within Vancouver, other parts of Canada, China, India, South America, Brazil, and Australia,” he said, adding there are scattered groups in place now like the Federation of Canadian Artists and the Port Moody Art Association that lack unification.

On Friday, Chow will perform five or six of his 300 original pieces, all inspired by his seven-foot Beijing jaded grand piano. Also performing new material will be guitarist Tony Beaulieu. The Richmond Fraserview Church is located at 11295 Mellis Dr. and the auction concert runs from 7 to 11 p.m. (live auction starts at 7:15 p.m.) Suggested donation is $15.

Making a Will with Reduced Capacity Reasons for judgement were released earlier this week in a case called Moore v. Drummond. The Plaintiff, the surviving adult child of the deceased, was disinherited in a Will made by the deceased a year before her death. Plaintiff claimed the deceased did not have testamentary capacity when she signed the Will. Medical evidence and the evidence of the lawyer (who prepared the Will) proved otherwise. The Court held that the Will was valid. It now fell to the Plaintiff to proceed with his claim under the Wills Variation Act. It is important to understand the notion of testamentary capacity and, more specifically, that a person may not be "fully capable" but still can "have enough in the tank" to make a Will.

NEW ZEALAND

Feel rumbling origins of Earth beneath feet BY CHRIS MCBEATH Special to the News

Lying some 50 kilometres off New Zealand’s north-eastern coast, White Island is an intimate volcanic experience. Not the X-rated genre, but the kind where you get up close and personal with

steaming schisms, vents, and gaseous fumaroles that make up one of the most accessible, active marine volcanoes in the world. Coming here is to feel the rumbling origins of Earth beneath your feet. Currently one of New Zealand’s most adventurous geothermal experiences, only a handful of tour companies are permitted to set foot on the island. Excursions operate out of the seaside town of Whakatane, and while they are offered year-round, departures are dependent on weather, and the island’s temperament. She is, after all, an 180,000-year-old, untamed part of the world that ranks an alert level rating of 1, meaning she is always active and constantly steaming. Level 5 is a national disaster. Other than a Level 2 rating in 2000, when the volcano coughed up ash for a month or two, which totally altered its landscape, and a lesser eruption in 2011, White Island usually remains quiet enough to welcome visitors. The trip is accessible to almost everyone who is up for two hours of walking, and sometimes clambering across rough terrain. Note, however, that if you’re arriving

Travel No-man’s land: All past attempts to settle, colonize failed Continued from page 19 your tour assembly point. But once you’ve made it that far, the real adventure begins. The Moari’s traditional name for the place is Te Puia o Whakaari, meaning The Dramatic Volcano — named with good reason. As in Gulliver’s Land of Brobdingnag, the gi-normous scale of everything here diminishes you to insignificance: Volcanic walls rise to over 300 metres, broken only by massive areas of cliff-side

space where the outer walls have been blasted out to sea. Across the crater floor of red iron oxide and lush beds of yellow and white sulphur crystals, are strewn leftovers from previous eruptions: bedrocks the size of houses. And at the island’s powerful, unpredictable heart is a turquoise lake of sulphuric acid-rich water that only drifts into sight when the wind clears the clouds of steam from the water’s surface (a sizzling

400 degrees celsius), and pushes them up into the sky like some peace pipe offering. Then there are the hissing sulphur holes, bubbling hot mud pools, and calcified mounds that look solid enough to climb in order to get a better Kodak moment. But it pays to listen to your guide’s safety advice and stay on the path. Those same outcrops are liable to collapse at the touch, sending you — and your camera — to the

earth’s core. You’re also equipped with a must-wear hard hat, and a gas mask for when an unexpected earth-burp envelops you with its noxious, sulphurous stench. Drinking bottled water and sucking on hardboiled candies go a long way to easing any throat irritations. In its heyday, though, before the island became a scenic preserve, the volcano was better known for its short-lived mining operations.

SLEEP Stem Cell SNORING?APNEA?

As recommended by Dr. Gifford-Jones M. D. Often snorers also have sleep apnea which causes being tired all day, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, irregular heartbeats (per FDA website). Millions suffer needlessly and can stop their nightly ordeals.

To my surprise, after taking Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Relief #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep #23 through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH ! Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS ! For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS !It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON.

Activator

Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from our own bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are #63 even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of self-repair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. It does not contain live human stem cells as these can only be transplanted by surgery and are subject to immunosuppressant drugs to avoid graft rejection. Naturopathic Doctor summarized his experience in writing after using this Stem Cell Activator: Used for all organ and tissue damage, heart attack damage, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic brain injury, muscular dystrophy, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, lupus, spinal injuries, and other diseases and tissue damage. The results have been very satisfactory to us and to the patients and the time varies with different patients depending on the extremity of the damage.

man’s land. The decaying ruins of the mining colony are still evident, however, as in collapsing stonewalls, and rusted machinery, which make for somber testimony — and atmospheric photos — of man’s efforts against the force of nature. While there are many places on New Zealand’s North Island to experience the country’s famous geothermal activities — Rotorua being the most celebrated — nothing compares to the raw splendor of White Island. Coming here is certainly no majestic moonwalk. Rather, it is to feel the still-roaring origins of Earth with every step and with every sense.

The Moari had long harvested the island’s sulphur as a fertilizer for their gardens back on the mainland, but it took European prospectors to try and transform those resources into a commercial venture. Purchased for two barrels of rum in the 1830s, White Island was turned into a sulphur processing operation. However, the acidic and harsh environmental conditions were as unforgiving on machinery as they were on people, and in spite of several attempts of various entrepreneurial die-hards, every one of them failed. So in 1914, when the southwest corner of the crater wall caved in, operations ceased for good. The volcanic landslide destroyed the buildings, buried 11 miners and wiped out the workforce, confirming that this was truly, and still is, a no-

PHOTO SUBMITTED

James Long (left) and Marcus Youssef both wrote and perform in Winners and Losers, opening tonight on Gateway Theatre’s Studio B stage.

Friends: On good terms despite low blows Continued from page 27 Although the play is completely autobiographical (each actor plays himself) and about 80 per cent scripted, the two often lob odd balls at each other each time they perform. And like any competition, particularly when there’s baggage to be dredged up, the narrative escalates to a ruthless dissection of their lives, determining whether Youssef and Long are winners or losers. Economic backgrounds and race are not left untouched. Both come from middle class backgrounds, but Youssef grew up with more privilege,

according to Long. “Marcus went to private school and lived in Toronto and London, his father was a banker,” said Long. “But his father was an Egyptian immigrant who basically started from nothing. And there’s also that aspect of colour, which confuses the situation as well.” Perhaps the climax occurs when Youssef delivers a rather low blow, the nature of which remains unknown as Long didn’t want to spoil anything for potential audiences. “We realized early in the writing process that we’d need a hard point

in there to really hit one of us,” said Long. “So I told Marcus something fairly personal from my life to get at me with. “I know he feels pretty awkward about mentioning it, but it’s important to the nature of the play.” Although seemingly unclear towards the end, Long insisted the two are still friends, likening them to Ali and Foreman after their historic ’74 fight. “A lot of it is about how we come to terms after this intense conversation we just had,” said Long. “But we knock our gloves together and move on.”

2013 Acura RDX leaps ahead BY DAVID CHAO

Special to the News

The Acura RDX was always a different “kind”

of a car. Designed to provide great performance and superb handling, the previous generation RDX was perhaps a bit too

aggressive in its approach to maximize performance while somewhat compromising comfort and luxury. The turbocharged engine and Europeanlike handling provided immense driving pleasure for a SUV but this dynamic package did not deliver as much “luxury value” to traditional, upscale SUV customers who were more drawn to softer, smoother riding vehicles such as the Lexus RX 350. For 2013, Acura decided that it was time for it to become “more mature” — luxury style. The redesigned 2013 RDX features refinements to every aspect to the vehicle. The exterior lines are softer, the interior is more plush, the drivetrain is smoother and the engine is more powerful yet more efficient. Most important of all, the new RDX looks and feels much more expensive. Acura hopes these refinements will welcome a whole new generation of young customers into its comfy yet stylish mode of transportation.

As already mentioned, the 2013 RDX’s image is more mature with understated elegance. The smoother exterior lines are partnered with traditionally sensible colours. The design is generally speaking much more upscale and gives that luxurious feel that was lacking in the 2012 version. The design is unmis-

takeably similar to the popular MDX model. Inside, the grown-up design continues with pleasant combination of curvy lines and flowing elements. The hard plastics that dominated the cabin of the previous model have been mostly replaced by softer more elegant materials. This is probably the single most noticeable aspect of the RDX’s maturation process. The cabin now feels like it came from a car that costs twice as much.

Performance

The revamped 2013 RDX did away with the 240-hp, 2.3-litre turbocharged inline four and replaced it with a 273-hp, 3.5-litre naturally aspirated V6 that’s already widely used in the Acura lineup. It’s mated to a new six-speed automatic transmission which gets 10.7L/100km in the city and 7.3L/100km on the highway, which is a vast improvement over the 2012 number; 12.4L/100km city, 9.8L/100km highway. This is also done with a new all-wheel drive system which is lighter to help aid the fuel economy numbers. The new V6 is much more refined cruising around town and handles the highway curves comfortably, though it does not have the sportiness of the previous model. Also on that note, the suspension is softer and smoother, again moving away from the more aggressive nature of its see Interior page 32

Interior: Feels spacious with plentiful leg, headroom Continued from page 30 predecessor. The only disappointment is the steering feel, which — while accurate in its ability to track the road — is light and somewhat artificial. It will likely please the average Lexustype SUV drivers (which is Acura’s targeted competitor anyways), but it will not steal sales away from BMW or Audi owners who are used to more road feel.

Even though the actual amount of added interior space is not that much, the interior feels more spacious. Looking about the cabin, the Acura meets all the prerequisites for an entry-level luxury vehicle with no overwhelmingly “unusual” features. All five seats are plush while providing adequate support and comfort. The spacy feel is consistent throughout as legroom and headroom is plentiful for the average adult in the rear seats. Acura also refined the RDX’s technology interface. Many features such as automatic climate control, Bluetooth, iPod connectivity and rearview camera remain somewhat similar, but they simplified their use and even added a SMS text messaging function. With the upgrade to the Technology Package, the five-inch monitor grows to eight inches and gains a navigation system with voice recognition and improved surround sound system. Fortunately, the more advanced system found in the Tech package remains simple and intuitive to use. While the luxuries are nice, the RDX is still a functional SUV and needs to fulfill the utility portion of the title. The rear door opens high offering sufficient head clearance to the expansive opening. The low floor also aids loading and unloading and its 739 litres of cargo space allows you to carry more than average SUVs in this category. But suppose you need a bit more space, the rear seats split 60/40 and fold down conveniently with two releases for each seat; one on the shoulder of the seat and another just inside the cargo area. The seats fold down to increase the space to generous 2,178 litres.

Features

The 2013 RDX is starts at $42,935 with an available Technology Package adding $3,000 to the asking price. Standard equipment includes fourwheel ABS with EBD and brake assist, front and side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, tire pressure monitoring system with location and pressure indicators, Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control, eight-way power adjustable driver seat, four-way adjustable front passenger seat, heated front seats, five-inch colour information display, dual-zone automatic climate control system, Bluetooth with steering wheel-mounted controls, SMS text message function, and rearview camera. The Technology Package adds an eight-inch LED backlit VGA display, nav-

igation system with Voice Recognition, 410-watt premium audio system, GPSlinked, solar-sensing, dual-zone automatic climate control system and power tailgate. Fuel efficiency numbers are 10.7L/100km city and 7.3L/100km highway.

Thumbs up

Quality interior materials and the easyto-use electronics make the cabin a fine place to spend time, while under the hood improvements make the 2013 RDX vastly improvement superior over its predecessor. The 2013 version simply feels more expensive.

Thumbs down

The changes to the engine and transmission may be welcome but the new electric steering lacks feedback. Not much else to complain.

The bottom line

The new RDX represents a marked improvement over the previous model and it now represents a great “luxury value” that could really hurt the competitors’ sales.

Competitors

Audi Q5: The Audi has been the benchmark of the luxury small SUV segment for some time now and it is reasonably priced too, starting in low $40,000s. The base 2.0litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine has less horsepower than the RDX, 211hp, but fuel economy numbers are similar, 10.6L/100km city and 7.7L/100km highway. The 2013 model also offers a supercharged 3.0 litre for extra power and performance. The Audi Q5 is the truly grown-up option for those looking to settle into a luxury small SUV. Infiniti EX35: Starting at $39,900, the EX is cheaper but is also a little smaller (especially in the rear legroom area). It is however more posh compared to the RDX and it boasts a slightly better handling. The 3.5-litre V6 produces 297-hp while using 12.3L/100km in the city and 8.5L/100km on the highway. If cargo space is less of a concern and you desire a more exhilarating commute, then the Infiniti is notable alternative. Volvo XC60: For those needing more cargo space the XC60 comes up trumps with 873litres of cargo capacity. At $38,950, the Volvo’s starting price is also lower than the RDX, however the base 3.2-litre inline six-cylinder trades a little horsepower with only 240-hp. Also, the added weight hurts the fuel economy numbers, 11.2L/100km city and 7.8L/100km highway. The only issue is that Volvo brand no longer represents the same level of luxury or performance as other brands such as BMW and Lexus.

CHUNG CHOW/ RICHMOND NEWS

Hugh Boyd Trojans Anthony Girono tries to slip out of the grasp of a Vernon opponent during last week’s provincial AA junior varsity quarter-final game. The Trojans saw their impressive season come to an end after a heartbreaking 26-22 overtime defeat.

Bantam Raiders win 9-man provincial football championship

A late season wake-up call proved to be the perfect remedy for the Richmond Raiders to cap an outstanding in spectacular fashion. The Raiders captured the B.C. Community Football 9-Man Bantam provincial championship with a convincing 41-6 win over the North Delta Longhorns on Sunday at Minoru Park. The result came exactly three weeks after the Longhorns had handed Richmond its second straight loss in league play — a 24-12 defeat on the road. The Raiders had rolled to seven consecutive wins until hitting that minor bump. “That was probably something we needed. The boys were getting a little too cocky,” said Richmond head coach Mark Talbot. “But they were definitely ready to play on Sunday.” Small registration numbers left the Raiders with little choice but to play at the 9-man level this season rather than the traditional 12-man under Canadian rules.

Even that proved to be a challenge as only a handful of players turned up for preseason practices. Finally, through word of mouth, the roster grew to 20 players. Talbot admits he was a bit skeptical about coaching 9-man at first but quickly became sold on the game. “It’s a very different strategy,” he said. “Even with a narrower field, there is so

much space out there for nine guys. It’s suited for big plays. The other great thing was the teams were pretty evenly matched so most of the games were fairly close.” The Raiders’ usual potent passing attack was hampered under wet conditions in their semi-final encounter with the Vancouver Trojans. The end result was Richmond squeaking out a 12-7 victory.

The championship game saw the hosts firing on all cylinders as touchdowns from Gabe Saklofsky and a pair from Patrick Ruvalcaba gave them a 21-0 lead by the midway mark of the opening quarter. Sakalosky added another on a pass from quarterback Tyler Moxin who also found the end zone. By halftime it was 34-0 Raiders. “We’ve been making big plays all season and it was definitely the case in the final too,” added Talbot. (Offensive coordinator) Rob (Parmar) has done a great job working with the boys and ensuring we have a balanced attack. Our passing game has been huge for us.” End zone... Another Richmond Minor Football team remains in the playoff hunt. The Atom Raiders won their VMFL semi-final game 36-30 over North Delta and will now host the Coquitlam Lions for the championship. Kickoff is slated for 10 a.m. on Sunday at Minoru Park.

Colts off to provincials for first time in over 30 years Richmond High is joined by four other city senior volleyball teams headed to B.C. championships next week For the first time in more than three decades, the Richmond Colts are headed to the provincial “AAA” boys volleyball championships. Fresh off their thrilling five-set victory over Steveston-London to capture the Richmond championship, the Colts booked their ticket to Kelowna with a third place finish at the Vancouver and District Playoff Tournament. The team includes Patrick Koo, Mustafa Aafi, Sean Wong, RJ Ramsey, Nick Lightfoot, Minxing Wang, Nigel Brown, Jordan Leong, Toby Revilla, Steven Chen, Josh Castro and Franco Ng. The boys are coached by Travis McClellan and Jessica

Ramsey. This group of primarily Grade 12s have won three city championships over the past five years and look forward to representing Richmond High at the provincials which get underway on Wednesday. The Colts are in a round-robin group that includes Ballenas (Parksville), Magee and Dover Bay (Nanaimo). Meanwhile, two other city boys teams will also be in Kelowna for their respective provincial tournaments. The Cambie Crusaders have secured a berth in the “AA” championships, while the Richmond Christian Eagles will be participating in the “A” championships. Richmond Colts are headed to the provincial “AAA” boys volleyball championships in Kelowna after a third place finish at the Vancouver and District playoff tournament.

McMath Wildcats and their supporters celebrate their first place finish at last week’s Vancouver and District “AAAA” playoffs at Killarney secondary school.

Richmond will also be well-represented on the girls’ side with the Richmond Christian Eagles and McMath Wildcats securing provincial berths. The city champion Eagles are heading to Nanaimo next week after finishing second in their district playdowns. The province’s seventh ranked team lost to No. 2 Elphinstone of Gibsons — 21-25 and 21-25. “This is the first time in the school’s history that we have been classified as AA, so to qualify as one of the top 16 teams in the province is huge for us, and we are delighted and thankful for a very successful season,” said Eagles coach Karen Prinsloo.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Many barriers, disruptions and sudden new conditions have assaulted you over the last several years. The weeks ahead bring a gentle, wise view of these “assaults of fortune.” You’ll understand, you’ll see society and its ways and your place in it. You’ll see your journey thus far, and the potential forward directions. By late December you’ll be mentally and spiritually refreshed, ready to charge the ramparts of ambition once again. Meanwhile, love, travel, learning and culture fill your days. Monday ends sexual, financial delays. Protect reputation Tuesday. Home succeeds Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Recent delays end Monday – you can confidently make new plans and/or start new projects. The weeks ahead emphasize depths, mysteries, intimacy, “treasures,” commitment and consequence. You might march into a more significant bonding with someone you met in late October (or someone who returned to your life in November) – this can involve love or business, friends or “your audience.” Pursue money these weeks (Wednesday important) – you face a very lucky potential here. Your energy and charisma soar early week – start something! Trips, communications hard Friday, easy Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Recent delays end Monday afternoon, so step forward, start projects, or make relationship overtures (in love and business). The weeks ahead feature many meetings, new people, fresh horizons and new opportunities. You might relocate, sign or negotiate a contract (most likely, a work/service agreement) or meet a new attractive person who challenges, unsettles you, but could be your “right partner.” Rest, lie low Sunday to Tuesday eve. A financial, health or sexual matter reaches a hopeful (but lucky?) climax Tuesday. Your energy, charisma climb midweek. Good money moves Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The weeks ahead feature work, though some “heart memory” of an attraction remains to relieve any drudgery. (It’s might be more than relief: a relationship could blossom into romantic intensity.) Recent delays end Monday, so you can move forward, start new projects and relationships, and give promises, especially in the zones of work, machinery, health and dependents. Your optimism, popularity and happiness rise Sunday to Tuesday. Retreat, rest midweek. Your energy and charisma move upward Friday (challenges) and Saturday (success!). Be wary of an ambitious partnership early week. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: A month of increased romance, (good) risk, lucky speculation, creativity and self-expression, pleasure and beauty has just begun. Threaded through all this pleasure will be various chores (legal, intellectual, writing chores?) and domestic demands. Don’t neglect these, as they might, oddly enough, prove supportive to your romantic, creative (etc.) interests. Avoid new starts through Tuesday afternoon. This day needs care with machinery, work, exertion. Happiness strikes midweek! Social joys, romance, popularity arrive; wishes come true. Retreat, rest and plan, Friday/ Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The weekly accent lies on home, kids, real estate, security, sales territory, retirement, nutrition, garden/farm, basement, landscape, and your foundations in career and love. Recent delays end Monday, though indecision lingers for a week or two. By Wednesday you can start mildly significant projects in career or more significant ones in home areas, real estate, etc. Your career project might be in real estate (etc.) or you might end one job/career, to make room for a new one. If you are in a romance, the weeks ahead intensify it – and your courage. The physical side grows hot.

Nov. 25 - Dec. 1, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Be gentle on the home front, reduce temper and impatience, until late December. A young child might be colicky. This interval will strain a weak love, marriage or business alliance. It can also bring a real estate oriented “partnership.” Monday ends November’s delays, but DON’T invest nor make a commitment before Tuesday night. Love, wisdom, travel, higher learning and culture draw you midweek – act Wednesday. Friday frustrates career initiatives; Saturday helps you succeed (in career, status, dealings with authorities). The weeks ahead emphasize travel, communications, friends. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Recent delays end Monday – but wait until Tuesday night, Wednesday to initiate any important action. Midweek favours investments, financial rearrangements, research, lifestyle changes and physical intimacy. Friday/ Saturday bring a broad, gentle outlook, possible love, certainly mellowness, wisdom. You’ll meet barriers and opposite opinions Friday, sweet congress and success Saturday. This week and the next few present you with money opportunities – seek new clients and/or a pay raise, buy/sell items, and chase a sensual person. December features more talk than action at workplace. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness will ride a year-high wave, until late December. Recent hold-backs dissolve. (Still, start nothing new – especially at work – before Tuesday night.) Early week brings health, work concerns. Chase relationships, make your claim, seize opportunities, advance toward a fresh new horizon – all Wednesday. You might start something which will have a big ending. Be diplomatic, as the lucky “other person” might be argumentative, cheeky. Take care with investments, health, secrets and sexual urges Friday – these matters succeed Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Retreat during the weeks ahead. Rest, study, plan, rejuvenate your health, dress and eat sensibly. Be charitable, spiritual. Approach civil servants, institutions and corporate head offices – they favour you to late December. Your management and executive skills will be obvious. Sunday/Monday are romantic, but don’t start a new relationship. A major development might occur in home or real estate Sunday to Tuesday: reject cruelty. Tackle chores midweek – new or difficult ones Wednesday, routine ones Thursday. Exciting relationships irk you Friday, please you Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Recent delays end Monday – but start nothing before Tuesday night. Be restful Sunday through Tuesday daytime: be at home, sleep, eat well, do domestic chores – in general, prepare yourself for imminent action. Which arrives Wednesday, as major romance, friendship, a creative surge or an adventurous or speculative streak propels you to reward. Tackle chores safely (and drive safely) Friday/Saturday. Save your harder chores for Saturday – don’t even start them Friday. The weeks ahead feature social delights, optimism, wish fulfillment, light romance – avoid belligerent people. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Recent delays end Monday, Pisces, but don’t start anything new before Tuesday night. The weeks ahead feature ambition, career, prestige relations – make a mark in the world! Now to late December, money wishes will come true. You might deal with an assertive friend (if you’re female, with a testosterone-laden male). Sunday/Monday bring errands, casual friends and communications. You can lay an excellent “floor” under your projects Wednesday, or make great strides in home, garden, with kids. What’s started this day will grow. Passion’s frustrated Friday, rewarded Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca
