Council passes five-year budget Brandon Kostinuk Now contributor

Surrey city council passed the final adoption of Surrey’s five-year budget plan Monday morning, meaning residents will pay 2.9 per cent more in general taxes and $148 more in secondary suite fees. The budget notes that increases to drainage and sewer fees, water charges, plus the one per cent road levy and the 2.9 per cent general tax increase would add up to

$98.36 per household annually. Plus, owners of homes with secondary suites will now have to fork over $395 per year. The service fee increase is expected to bump up the annual revenue generated by it to $10 million from $7 million. The city also plans to invest an estimated $42 million in numerous capital projects, including repairs to Newton Athletic Park, a Cloverdale youth park and a multipurpose space in Fleetwood. The bulk of the money will go toward budgeting Guildford Pool.

Markita Kaulius held up a shredded softball uniform, that trauma doctors had to cut off of her 22-year-old daughter’s mangled body, for Natasha Leigh Warren to see. “That’s all I have left to hang onto,” the grief-stricken Surrey mother sobbed. “You left my daughter to die in the street.” Warren, 34, from North Delta is being sentenced in Surrey provincial court after pleading guilty to dangerous driving causing death, failing to remain at the scene of a crash and driving with Natasha Warren a blood alcohol content over the legal limit causing death, in connection with the May 3, 2011 collision that killed Kassandra Marie Kaulius, 22, of Surrey. The sentencing hearing continues today. On Monday both families cried much and often as the court heard one heartbreaking victim impact statement after another, from Kaulius’ family. see FAMILIES › page 3

Delta man and his dog killed in crash

SPECIAL EDITION: In Dec. 24 issue, these kids call the shots

A Delta man was killed Sunday evening after his vehicle struck a light post along Highway 91. Luis Calderon Sanchez was driving on the westbound Nordel Way off ramp at around 10:30 p.m. when he lost control of his Toyota Corolla, spun and hit the light post with enough force to wrap the vehicle around it. Sanchez was pronounced dead at the scene. His dog, which was also in the vehicle, was also killed. RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Peter Thiessen said speed and poor weather are considered factors in the accident.

SUV hits girl, 7, at Newton crosswalk A seven-year-old girl was sent to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries Sunday after being struck by an SUV at a crosswalk. The incident took place around 6 p.m. when the girl, a Newton resident, was crossing 74th Avenue at 140th Street with her father and sister. The driver of a Dodge Journey made a westbound turn into the crosswalk and struck the girl, who was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The driver was issued a ticket for not yielding to a pedestrian. This was the second such incident in less than a week, after another girl was hit during a hit-and-run collision at around 6 p.m. Thursday. A darkcoloured sedan clipped the girl with its driver’s side mirror while crossing 188th Street and 58th Avenue. The girl was taken to hospital with non-lifethreatening injuries.

Officer killed in crash was speeding The RCMP officer killed last month in a car crash was speeding without his emergency lights on, according to a police investigation. The officer, Const. Adrian Oliver, was at the end of a night shift when he was involved in a motor vehicle accident while driving his police cruiser along 64th Avenue near 148th Street. According to a preliminary police investigation, GPS and video evidence indicate that Oliver, 28, was speeding while attempting to track down a stolen truck when he collided with a semitruck turning onto 64th Avenue. Oliver’s regimental funeral was attended by more than 6,000 people.

Students from Ms. Pesce and Mrs. Brister’s Grade 6/7 class at Latimer Road Elementary school in Cloverdale are excited to be sitting in the editor’s chair next week. Editor Beau Simpson has been visiting the class once a week since early November and has been helping the young journalists hone their skills for a special edition of

the ‘Now’ on Dec. 24. In that issue, the newspaper will be filled with the students’ stories, photos, poems and artwork. “They have been working very hard on their assignments,” Simpson said. “I have been very impressed with the kids and I can’t wait for the end result to hit readers’ doorsteps on Dec. 24.” (Photo: KEVIN HILL)

In court

‘Families are being destroyed’ ‹ from page 1

Crown prosecutor Crichton Pike told Judge Gurmail Gill that Warren drank “at least” a bottle and a half of wine while watching a Canucks versus Predators game earlier that night. Still wearing her Canucks’ jersey, Warren got behind the wheel of her company-issued white econo-line van shortly after 10 p.m. and slammed into Kaulius’ BMW sedan at 103 kilometres an hour. Kaulius was just three blocks from home, returning from a softball game, and had been waiting to make a legal left turn at intersection of 152nd Street and 64th Avenue. Most of her family left the courtroom as Pike described her injuries. The driver’s side of the BMW was caved in by two feet, leaving the driver’s seat less than a foot wide. Pike said Kaulius died quickly of massive head injuries. Warren’s van stopped 45 metres away. The court heard a motorist asked her how she was, and she said she was fine, but when she saw the BMW she put her hand to her chest, looked like a “caged animal” and ran away.

Markita Kaulius

Kassandra Kaulius

Pike said one witness said she appeared to be “drunk as a skunk.” Warren managed to hop over a chain link fence into some brambles and hid in a woodsy vacant lot. She was arrested and taken to the Surrey RCMP detachment, Pike said, where she was slurring and swaying, and blew twice over the legal limit. Kaulius’ family made sounds of disgust when Pike noted that Warren phoned her boyfriend after the crash to say she thought police were chasing her, and her boyfriend sent her a text message telling her to get out of the van, take the keys and run, and that they could report the van stolen. Aiming an eight-by-10 framed photo of

her daughter at Warren, Markita Kaulius delivered a hear-wrenching victim impact statement. “Miss Warren, you took away her hopes, her dreams and her future,” she sobbed. “Parents are not supposed to see their children lying in a casket. “The pain is excruciating and I know it will never go away,” she cried. “There are days that I feel I’m going out of my mind. Every day is a struggle just to get up and live.” Her husband Victor echoed that. “This does not get easier over time,” he said. “If anything, it gets harder. “I live with the ultimate horror parents never want to happen,” he said. “Kassandra was my baby girl.” Pike refused to say, before the Now’s press time, what kind of sentence he’ll seek, but Markita and Victor Kaulius said outside court they heard the Crown will argue for a sentence of three and a half years in prison. Markita pleaded for people not to drink and drive. “We’ve got to stop tolerating this,” she told reporters. “Families are being destroyed.” tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

Shawn Wilson named Surrey school board’s new chair Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

The decision was made last week following a board meeting on Thursday where former chair Laurae McNally decided it was time for her to take a break from the role, and Wilson was voted in to replace her. “This is my 29th year as a school trustee and I have been chair more than one-third of my time as a trustee,” said McNally. “I’ve been chair 10 times and now I think it’s time for a break.”

I’ve been chair 10 times and now I think it’s time for a break. For McNally, whose most recent stint as chair spanned the past four years, she’d like to continue as a trustee who’s able to be more out in the education community rather than on the administrative side of things. “I would like to spend more time out in schools with students and teachers and not

have to go to 8 a.m. agenda meetings,” she said. “When you’re chair, you’re sort of on 24/7, you get emails at all hours of the day and night and you need to deal with them.” Surrey superintendent Mike McKay said McNally’s time as chair has been a boon for Surrey schools. “Laurae McNally has been an outstanding advocate for public education, she’s been a great leader of the board and a great spokesperson,” said McKay. “I feel advantaged to have been working with her and I think the district’s been well-served by her.” As for her successor, McNally said Wilson is more than capable of assuming the role. “He’s been chair in the past, he’s got all the experience needed,” she said.

The Delta board of education selected two-term trustee Laura Dixon as its new chairperson Tuesday. Dixon replaces Dale Saip, who recently announced he wouldn’t seek another year as chair after four years in the position. Dixon, who thanked Saip for his leadership, experience and insight, said good news would be coming from the district soon regarding its annual achievement contract. She added the district is also busy implementing its vision for education.

Sandor Gyarmati

Wilson said he knows the responsibilities required and is looking forward to doing what he can to move Surrey’s education forward. “The board wants to have somebody in the position that wants to do it,” he said. McKay said Wilson would be well-suited to the role and looked forward to seeing him

School district offers support following Connecticut shooting With the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting still fresh in the minds of everyone on both sides of the border, the Surrey school district was letting parents know that support and counselling was available, should their children need it. In a notice sent home with students Friday afternoon, the Surrey school district reminded parents that should their child feel anxious or need support after learning about that day’s shooting, resources were available from the district to address those needs. “We’ve done it in all cases since I’ve been here,” said Doug Strachan, district manager of communications. “Parents have asked us for support in situations like these before, so we routinely remind them we have help available.” Strachan said the notices are a result of parents requesting such information during similar events in the past. And while there have been two complaints received regarding the use of the

word “shooting” in the notice, Strachan said the word shouldn’t have made it into the notice. “We normally don’t try to get into details as to what occurred,” he said. “‘Shooting’ Doug Strachan was something we wouldn’t normally put in there; however, it was quickly written in the afternoon and slipped in there because of the tight timeline to get information to parents on a Friday.” As for how people around the district are doing, Strachan said people are rattled. “Obviously, everybody is shaken by something like this,” he said. As for whether or not teachers would be addressing the shooting with their students, Strachan said, “The approach is to stick to routines and keep an eye out and see if there are students in a state of anxiety. Otherwise things should be proceeding as normal.”

Man accused of beheading roommate fires his lawyer

Now reporter Twitter @tomzytaruk

A Surrey man accused of seconddegree murder in the decapitation and dismemberment of his roommate in 2008 has fired his lawyer in the home stretch of what has been a lengthy trial. Ernie Allan Hosack, 40, is accused of killing Richard Falardeau, 54, and desecrating his body. His lawyer, Brian Coleman, was just about to launch into his final arguments on Friday morning, in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver, when Hosack pulled the plug. “Mr. Hosack came into court this morning and decided he was going to dismiss me as his counsel, which he did. Notwithstanding the judge’s comments to him, he persisted in doing that,” Coleman said. Justice Terry Schultes adjourned the case to Jan. 10 to give Hosack time to find a new lawyer. “I think we’re all being held in suspense,” Crown prosecutor Brad Kielmann said.

“As it stands, there’s no mistrial application.” Chris McPherson, Kielmann’s fellow Crown prosecutor, gave his final submissions, for the second time, in court Thursday. He argued Hosack had both the opportunity and motive to kill Falardeau, whom he’d met at a coffee shop in Surrey. Earlier in the trial, back in July of this year, the court heard Falardeau had invited Hosack to share an attic apartment he’d been renting at 14358 88th Ave. where the Surrey RCMP Missing Persons Unit encountered clouds of flies, in the August heat, after Falardeau’s brother had reported him missing. Venturing further into the sweltering attic, police found Falardeau’s headless torso stuffed inside a suitcase in a closet. His thumbs, anus, scrotum and testes were found in plastic bags in the refrigerator freezer. His skull, with some hair and part of the spine still attached, was found three months later, in marshy tall grass in a hollow off a pathway along the Hydro rightof-way, near 92nd Avenue and King George Boulevard.

Surrey wife killer, 75, loses appeal An elderly Surrey man who stabbed his wife with a steak knife 126 times has lost an appeal of his murder conviction. Sebastiano Damin, 75, attacked his wife Maria Catroppa, 69, while she was sleeping in their Monta Rosa townhouse in Fleetwood on Nov. 24, 2009. He was found guilty of second-degree murder. “Something snapped in my

head,” Damin told a psychiatrist at Royal Columbian Hospital after he was arrested. Trial Judge Ian Josephson found that while Damin was depressed at the time this didn’t prevent him from forming the intent to murder his wife. Justice Daphne Smith, of the B.C. Court of Appeal, upheld Damin’s conviction.

B.C. politics

Economy spin hard to swallow InTheHouse Keith Baldrey

T

he B.C. Liberals keep using your money to tell you what a great job they’re doing managing the economy and creating jobs, but evidence keeps mounting that their claim to being financial wizards is questionable at best. First the B.C. government admitted its annual budget would have a much greater deficit than originally forecast. Then the latest job figures from Stats Canada showed the province actually lost more than 4,000 jobs last month. And then last week came the news that a leading financial firm thinks the province’s finances are starting to teeter on the brink of undesirable territory. That bad news, of course, came in the form of two financial downgrades by Moody’s Investor Services. While the financial firm kept intact the triple A credit rating for both the provincial government and BC Hydro, it dropped its outlook rating for both

from “stable” to “negative.” Both downgrades came because of concerns about the rising debt for both the province and the Crown corporation, combined with a sluggish economic performance that results partly from slumping revenues. Under the B.C. Liberals’ watch, the provincial debt has grown from $34 billion to a forecast of nearly $63 billion next year. B.C. Hydro’s debt has climbed from just more than $6 billion to more than $15 billion. Much of this debt accumulation is the result of an aggressive and ambitious capital spending program. Everything from new schools and hospitals to such big ticket items as the Sea-to-Sky Highway, the Port Mann Bridge, the Canada Line and the Vancouver Convention Centre have all helped balloon our provincial debt. BC Hydro has had to spend billions of dollars upgrading and maintaining its vast network of dams, transmission lines and generating stations. Few would quibble with much of this capital spending. Everyone wants a new or upgraded school

for their kids, new hospital expansions are greeted enthusiastically by local communities, and a reliable power supply needs ongoing maintenance. People may grumble about spending a lot of money on bridges and roads, until they begin using them. But also adding to our debt has been the cost of accumulated annual budget deficits, as the B.C. Liberals have chocked up a half dozen of them. It wasn’t supposed to be like this, of course. When the B.C. Liberals were in Opposition and the NDP was in power, they passed themselves off as economic-masters-inwaiting, while casting the New Democrats in the role of incompetent money managers. The truth is neither party has much to boast about when it comes to balancing the budget. Both parties

routinely racked up annual deficits while in office, and each struggled when the economy took any kind of nosedive (my own view is that governments get too much credit when times are good, and receive too much blame when things go bad). So Moody’s has now called out the B.C. Liberals on two fronts. Combined with that spotty track record when it comes to balancing the budget, it’s hard to see how that party can turn the next election campaign into being about which party is more competent at managing the economy. Still, there���s no doubt the B.C. Liberals will continue to beat their favourite drum about the so-called “dismal decade” of the NDP-ruled 1990s. But various economic statistics do not support the notion that one party is so much better than the other. It was amusing to see the

government trying to spin its way out of the bloody nose it got from Moody’s. There were lots of focus on the credit rating remaining intact, and virtually no mention of that downgrade of what the firm think the future holds for B.C.... And the future does not look particularly promising. The economy will slowly grow, the provincial debt will continue to climb, the government will likely run budget deficits for at least a couple more years (despite what it will claim in next year’s budget), and natural

resource revenues are unlikely to spring back to the levels they were at a few years ago. It’s hard to see Moody’s upgrading its outlook for B.C. back to stable anytime soon. But in the meantime, that taxpayer-funded ad campaign will continue to pat the government on the back about its economic wizardry. I have to wonder whether the voters will buy into any of that magic.

School shooting requires action, not just talk

Maria Szabo, Surrey

Casino bad idea for city The Editor, Opening a casino in South Surrey is not a very bright idea. As a student, young adult and daughter, I am concerned. It truly is a bad decision that Surrey council made. If the casino does open, many families will break apart due to the lack of communication and the increase of tension between family members. Instead of thinking about school and their future goals, students will be making plans with their friends to go to the casino. Moreover, the crime rate will go up. The people, who

will go there and come out with what they have won, will get mugged. This is already happening at other casinos. Also, because people will be getting easy money through the casino, people may end up turning to drugs. A new casino will also mean an increase in traffic, which means that there may be more accidents occurring. Opening a casino will make Surrey a bit more dangerous. Nausheen Khan, Surrey

Old NHL is gone forever The Editor, I never thought that I would feel this way. I used to follow the NHL as an escape from work, world conflicts and news about the financial crisis. Turning on a hockey game after work enabled me to disengage from all of the headlines about labour unrest. It is ironic that my one-time escape from all of this rhetoric has now manifested itself as something even more unpalatable, the NHL labour talks. All its ugliness now exposed. I will never look at a puck drop with the same innocence. To hear a

referee’s whistle blow now conjures up images of police confronting rioters on the streets – the smell of $6 concourse popcorn now seems burnt. Goodbye my old friend, I will remember the old NHL fondly, the new version has lost a fan.... Gerd Peters, Surrey

Eco Club is owed apology The Editor, Re: “Roses and rotten tomatoes,” the Now, Dec. 13. There has been a misunderstanding. I quote directly from the paper: “A recycling truck full of rotten tomatoes to the youth who are desecrating beautiful holly trees in Royal Kwantlen Park. They have made a muddy mess cutting down blackberry bushes and all these beautiful holly trees. Who would authorize such an activity? And when is Surrey parks going to pick up the mess?” As a student from Kwantlen Park Secondary and a participant from the group of “youth who are desecrating,” I feel you should hear our story. First, everything we do is approved by the City of Surrey. We do not go around cutting down the bushes for the fun of it – the blackberry bushes and holly trees are invasive species. These

species are choking out native species. This problem was recognized by a few of our classmates last year, and a club was started to help fight the problem. The name of the club is Eco Club, and we have been taking trips every Friday that the weather is nice to take out the invasive species. If this has just been noticed now, it is because we are finally beginning to make a difference in the ecosystem. We are a group of locally aware students who are just trying to make an environmentally-friendly impact. So perhaps an apology is in order because there are about 20 students who participate in this activity, excluding me. P.S. I love your newspaper. It is so local and awesome! Aneet Malhi, Surrey

Tomatoes back at you The Editor, Re: “Roses and rotten tomatoes,” the Now, Dec. 13. Regarding the reader who sent rotten tomatoes to “the youth desecrating beautiful holly trees in Royal Kwantlen Park.” I would like to clarify that we are removing invasive species (English holly and Himalyan blackberry) that are overpowering native

plants in the park. We are doing this with the approval of the City of Surrey parks and recreation department, using their equipment. This is part of our school’s community service projects. As an ecologically-conscious person, I’ll take the liberty of diverting the “recycling truck full of rotten tomatoes” to the compost.

Brianne Welch, Surrey

Bus snub is irrational The Editor, It is disappointing that the new bus service between Langley and New Westminster is not going to make any stops in Surrey. To get more cars off the road and provide the maximum convenience to the public, more express bus service is needed to run on that specific bus route. The decision to not stop the bus in Surrey is silly and irrational on the part of TransLink and the Ministry of Transportation. Overlapping layers of bureaucracy make irresponsible and shortsighted decisions. If the bus service is made attractive, convenient and economical, more people will use the system, which will result in fewer cars on the roads. In the long run it will help reduce pollution and congestion on the roads. There should be a long term plan in place. Alas, it is not so.

Shakti Ramkumar, Surrey

Get informed before judging The Editor, Re: “Roses and rotten tomatoes,” the Now, Dec. 13. Someone wrote that the youth “desecrating beautiful holly trees in Royal Kwantlen Park” should be given a recycling truck full of rotten tomatoes. To whomever wrote this, I don’t think you stayed to actually see what they were doing. I am not one of those youths, but I do know them. They are a part of the Eco Club in the high school there. They were in fact cutting down plants, but what they were in fact cutting down were the invasive species that are all over the that park. These youths are very kind and generous people; they are simply trying to make Surrey a better place. Please, before you judge

The Editor, I’ve been thinking about how much the people in Newtown lost – their children, their spirits and their feeling of safety. Those kids may have lost a friend, a teacher, a crush, a good night’s sleep – and some lost their lives, their next birthday, their freedom. Why is this happening again? The U.S. has had 11 incidents of mass shooting since 1966, resulting in the deaths of 187 people, according to Global. I am 18. Every year since I was 11, I take special time to pray for the Columbine massacre that happened in 1999 after learning about it on a news special I watched one morning before school. I was five when it happened, but that event affected me, even years later. Even though Colorado and Connecticut are a long way away from Vancouver, it still hits home. This is our society, our parents, our children and our teachers. It will be me, my children and my children’s teachers one day, unless we can put an end to the violence that always seems to take us by surprise. We shouldn’t be surprised anymore. We should be willing to take action.

COMMUNITY 459 blood donors needed in Surrey during ‘Holiday Miracle’ drive

With 2012 coming to an end and the New Year on the horizon, Canadian Blood Services is asking people to “Give a Holiday Miracle” by donating blood. Collecting blood during the holiday season is a challenge as many regular donors travel or are busy with other activities. Yet

the need for blood remains high because people still need life-saving surgeries, emergency care and even cancer treatments during this time. In the last two weeks of this year, Canadian Blood Services estimates a need of 25,000 units of blood across the country. To meet

Penguins team wins hockey contest 120412 Design - Cloverdale Magazine

0Q.//N6 /K.10*

Some young Surrey Penguins stirred up enough interest in a video they made to top an online contest among hockey teams in B.C. The Hockey 3 division team of seven-yearolds earned the most public votes – more than 10,000 of them – in an All Star Grants contest run by the Best Buy chain. The top 10 teams in the contest each earned a $2,000 grant, including sixth-place finisher

Cloverdale Eagles, a Hockey 4 division team. The Penguins’ winning video – edited by Ashna Sanghera, 10, whose brother Jordan plays on the team – showed team members being interviewed and dancing to “Gangnam Style.” The Penguins will use their $2,000 for player development. Nearly 300 teams participated in the contest.

Carol singer John Lamanna reacts to an advertisement in his program announcing the 2013 Jetta for only $168 a month. “I haven’t hit a note that high since I was 14,” he later commented.

It’s become as much a part of the holiday season as caroling and trimming the tree. Delta police has kicked off its annual drinking and driving CounterAttack program this weekend. Beginning last Friday and continuing until Jan. 1, officers will set up roadblocks throughout the community in a bid to nab impaired drivers. “Delta police will be visible in drinking establishments and will be conducting roving patrols near and around these premises to create awareness of police presence, which will serve as a reminder for patrons to not drink and drive,” said department spokesperson Const. Ciaran Feenan. “Delta police are encouraging everyone to plan for safe rides home, and to utilize designated driving programs, taxis and transit.” Surrey Mounties found fewer drunk drivers than they expected after launching their Christmas CounterAttack campaign on Friday, Dec. 7. In Delta, in addition to looking for drivers under the influence of alcohol, police will also be keeping an eye out for other driving offences, such as speed and seatbelt violations, Feenan said. Last year about 4,000 drivers passed

through roadblocks. Of that, 107 were asked to give a breath sample, which means an officer had reason to suspect the driver had consumed alcohol before getting behind the wheel. Of the drivers asked to take the breath test, 94 passed, six registered a warn, six registered a fail and one refused to take the test. For those partygoers who have taken part in some liquid holiday cheer, Operation Red Nose Delta/Richmond is once again available to help people, and their vehicles, get home safely after a night of celebrating. Operation Red Nose continues to operate on the dates of Dec. 21, 22 and 31 between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. Clients are advised to call 604-9430460 to arrange a ride 30 to 45 minutes in advance of their desired pick up time, and 60 minutes in advance after midnight. “The Delta Police Department would like to take this opportunity to ask for the co-operation of all motorists to drive responsibly to ensure that we all have a safe and happy holiday season,” Feenan said.

2013 Tourism White Rock Art Calendar

Meet the Artists By Tracey Rayson

Sunset Pier – (Outside front cover) Nattawot Juttiwattananon: flickr.com/ people/83255230@N02 Inspired to capture landscapes in his native Thailand, Nattawot took up photography seven months ago. A White Rock resident for almost seven years, he believes nothing is more iconic to White Rock than the pier and the white rock. Shot in October, he used a 50-year-old Russian Helios 44-2 58mm f2 lens on his digital Olympus OMD EM5. “I walked around the beach thinking about what I wanted to shoot. I waited until the ‘golden time’ and was lucky enough to get a couple holding hands. The composition, moment, and colour were perfect — one shot, all at the right time.”

JANUARY - Sunset Over the Surf Tim Shields: HDRphotos.com Tim bought his first camera at 13 and has been hooked on photography ever since. A four-year White Rock resident, Tim captured this sunset with a wide angle lens and Nikon D90 on a cold April day. With high winds and huge waves, only minutes to spare, he snapped a few frames on the beach before wading into the water, waves crashing to his waist. “I’m sure people watching thought I was crazy, but I nailed the shot! I liked the way the sun reflected off the water and the size of the waves, which are rare for White Rock.”

FEBRUARY - Promenade in Snow Marilyn Trenchard: mtrenchardphoto.com With a studio in White Rock, Marilyn has lived in the community for 20 years, actively involved in photography for over 30 years. Her love of nature combined with an artistic eye enables her photographs to capture the splendour of the natural world. This photo was taken several years ago with a medium format camera, just west of the pier, mid afternoon, after a freak snowfall. “It was more difficult to get from my home than it was to take the single image I shot. For me, White Rock is a special place because of its picturesque and quiet beauty.”

MARCH - Wind Swept Ellen Atkin: EllenAtkin.com A self-taught photographer, Ellen became interested in photography at 13, after taking a studio darkroom course. An aerial and fine art photographer, she was a White Rock resident for five years. Ellen spends winters in Mexico and shoots sports action tourist photography of kiteboarders and windsurfers; she started shooting sports action in Whistler in the ‘90s. She’s currently exhibiting in La Ventana, Baja Sur. “Wind Swept was taken in March on a particularly windy day, while I lived on Marine Drive. I saw my neighbours gearing up to go windsurfing, so I walked out my front door and snapped this shot.”

APRIL – Mariners’ Light Joy Gerow: lensdancer.com Joy’s artistic talents stem from childhood where she holds fond memories of White Rock’s beach community. As a member of the Canadian Association of Photographic Art, she’s won four competitions, and her most treasured, the Judy Daniels’ Award of Excellence from the Langley Camera Club. In September, after dinner at Moby Dick, she stood at the pier’s edge and shot 50 frames of the water/boats/sunset with a Nikon D2x and 24120mm Nikkor lens. “There are two horizontal lines in the water to the right of the boats: two swimmers in full wetsuits coming in for the night — a delightful surprise!”

MAY - Birds Over the Bay Hugh Zhao: flickr.com/photos/hugh6 With 28 years of photography experience, Hugh specializes in portrait, fashion, and scenic images. Currently a photojournalist with Shandong Pictorial magazine, a famous periodical in China, Hugh has over 5,000 published photographs. A White Rock resident for just over a year, his love for the sea takes him to the ocean and beach to shoot during the morning and evenings. On an early spring morning in 2012, Hugh set out with his Nikon

D3. “I went down to the pier and saw numerous birds flying over the sea. Their beauty almost took my breath away, so I just kept shooting.”

JUNE – A Castle’s Last Stand Derek Hayes: derekhayesphotography.com A White Rock resident since ‘94, Derek got his first 35mm at age nine and now creates his own history books. Over 50 of his images appear in his latest, British Columbia: A New Historical Atlas. “Taken in May with a Canon 5D Mark II, the tide was coming in and people seemed desperate to get photos before the castle collapsed into the sea; it did — about 15 minutes after taking this photo. Including the couple added the necessary scale to the image. For this evening shot, the light was good during the last hour of daylight — the golden hour.”

JULY – Snowbirds Over White Rock Derek Hayes: derekhayesphotography.com “The Snowbirds were shot from the upper deck of my house, which overlooks Semiahmoo Bay. It was taken one evening in July, 2012 with my Sony R-1 camera. I fired off several hundred shots of the various acrobatics the Snowbirds performed, but this one ‘hit the spot’ more effectively than any of the others, and also, by including the Gulf Islands and Semiahmoo Bay with sailboats in it, gave the photo good context. I was lucky that a couple of the jets happened to be emitting orange smoke right at this point, which gives the photo a little more colour.”

AUGUST - A Day at the Beach Adrian Burden: adrianburden.com A budding photographer since high school, Adrian shoots weddings, events, and favourite hiking locales, with photos in Lonely Planet, Tourism Vegas publications, and the cover of Hike Chilliwack Tourism. A Surrey resident, Adrian enjoys frequent “photo walks” in White Rock and caught this Sea Festival image on a Nikon D3. “I walked up and down the beaches to shoot the many activities. Lots of people were out and about and I wanted to capture this by showing the sprawling crowds on East Beach. I found the perfect vantage point from the top of the hill between East and West Beach.”

SEPTEMBER - Reflections of East Beach Brandur Coombs: brandurcoombsphotography.com After a 20-year departure from his own dark room photo processing, Brandur picked up the camera three years ago with his wife’s encouragement. Since then, his photos have been featured in art exhibits, including the Surrey Arts Centre, “Mirror Mirror” and the Fraser River Discover Centre, “Photos of the Fraser.” A 10year White Rock resident, Brandur snapped this photo in October on his way home from work with a Pentax K-x. “I was drawn to the calmness of the water and captured the shot on the first take from the public boat dock at the end of the pier.”

his home. He ran down to the beach at low tide with his tripod and Nikon D90. “I only had about one minute of real sunset left so I raced to the water’s edge hoping to catch some reflection from the sun. With a wide angle lens, I lowered the tripod to about 12 inches off the sand and fired a series of three frames. I processed them into one HDR image that captured the dark and bright spots within the frame. It’s one of my all-time favourite photos.”

NOVEMBER - White Rock Eagles Stacey Kons: staceykonsphotography.com A photog hobbyist since youth, Stacey got serious with her craft over the past few years shooting landscapes, scenery, families and children. As a Cloverdale resident for 10 years, White Rock has always been a special place. One rainy and sleet-filled February day, Stacey spent 25 minutes shooting eagles on the East Beach with her Canon T1i wrapped in a scarf. “With a telephoto lens, I got some decent shots. I tried to balance taking the photos with watching the eagles to appreciate the amazing experience. I had a whole section of the beach to myself with the eagles — wonderful!”

DECEMBER - Winter Evening Wilma Maki: flickr.com/photos/wilmamaki Interested in art since childhood, Wilma began taking photographs in her 20s while travelling — loving nature photography best. Living in White Rock for the past 10 years has inspired her to resume her passion. With two photo books to her name, White Rock Impressions and Fraser River Estuary, she sells her images at the museum and Painters’ Square. This museum image, prerenovation, was taken at dusk with a Nikon film camera. “I like to wander about and wait for a scene to capture my attention — then I must be open to what is around me and be ready to see.”

Soar – (Inside back cover) Darlene Bellamy Seatter A self-describe hobbyist photographer, Darlene has been shooting nature (her favourite genre) for about four years: “attempting to capture tranquility at its best!” An ex-pat Winnipegian, Darlene has lived in White Rock for 42 years and captured the Soar shot during one of her frequent afternoon walks along the promenade and pier. On a brisk February day she noticed the unique cloud formation, and promptly left her house with her Canon T2i. “Thanks to the convenience of digital photography, I always snap numerous shots. I felt this one with the seagull passing by was ‘the’ shot I was looking for.”

Beautiful Ending - (Outside back cover) Danielle Holland: flickr.com/photos/89151131@N02

One January evening, Tim watched the makings of a sunset from

A new resident, Danielle moved to White Rock a year and a half ago, and has been welcomed into the community as if she has lived there her whole life. Her interest in photography spans many years and she shoots anything she finds to be beautiful — particularly nature and her family. “This photograph was taken one evening when my husband said, ‘You might want to grab your camera because this isn’t going to last long!’ I ran to my balcony, my Fujifilm FinePix S4000 in hand, and took the shot: a beautiful ending to a beautiful White Rock February day.”

BEAUTIFUL SEASIDE SCENES

Trevor Linden (right) plays goalie during a floor hockey game Thursday at Mary Jane Shannon Elementary. (Photo: JACOB ZINN) “It was really fun, and I love the Canucks so it was really exciting,” she said. “He was a good goalie. He let a goal in, but that’s OK.” For Linden, who will be opening a new fitness club in Surrey in the New Year, the donation was a chance to show that even small businesses can make a difference in their communities. “(This is) a message to all businesses, small or large, that they can make a difference in their own backyard,” he said. “Some of the needs of these schools for specific programming are pretty small and they allow any person or small business to make a difference, and that’s cool.” Mary Jane Shannon principal Lois Layton said the funds would be used for providing students with winter clothing, such as boots and coats. “We had sent in a request because have many students at our school that aren’t often able to come equipped during the winter months,” said Layton. “We’re just so appreciative. It just shows what a public personality Trevor is.”

The buzz was palpable as students of Mary Jane Shannon Elementary filed into their school’s auditorium for a surprise assembly. Rumour had it that a hockey player would be visiting the school for something, and children were left guessing who it would be. Would it be someone from the local Surrey Eagles? A homegrown hero such as Colin Fraser, or could it even be a Canuck? The kids didn’t have to wait long to see as Trevor Linden, Mr. Captain Canuck himself, casually strolled into the auditorium, much to the high-pitched delight of those gathered. Arriving at the school Thursday to present a donation of $2,500 on behalf of the Trevor Linden Foundation and the Vancouver Sun’s Adopt-a-School campaign, Linden wasn’t just there to present a cheque, he was also there to get down to business. With stick in hand, Linden took part in an impromptu game of floor hockey, taking on some of the school’s Grade 7s in several threeon-three matches. Given his size, Linden opted to stick to tending his team’s net, doing his best Roberto Luongo impression. “I should’ve been a goalie,” laughed Linden during the match. Following the hockey, Linden presented the donation to the school, bid his farewells and let the students get back to their studies. “They were tough, they made me sweat,” said Linden shortly afterward. “When you come to a school like this and you see the excitement and enthusiasm of the kids, to be able to make a difference in their lives is a pretty special thing to do, especially at this time of year.” Grade 7 student Danni said it was “awesome” to be able to play with Linden.

Eagles limp into break on four-game skid Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

It was feast or famine for the Surrey Eagles in two B.C. Hockey League home games last weekend, but the results of both encounters left the Birds with indigestion. The Eagles scored five times and had to settle for a 5-5 draw with the Powell River Kings on Friday night. Sunday afternoon the Eagles cranked 41 shots at Prince George Spruce Kings goalie Kirk Thompson and came away empty handed in a 2-0 loss to send the South Surrey lads into the Christmas break riding a four-game winless streak. “We ended up with one out of four points on the weekend and I know it sounds stupid, but we could easily have earned three points and possibly even all four,” said Eagles coach Matt Erhart. “It was one of those things where maybe we won a game earlier in the year where we made a comeback with a bounce or two in our favour and now things are just evening up. We deserved to win at least one of those games this weekend and but we came away with just one point.” The weekend results saw the Eagles drop to third place in the BCHL’s Mainland Division. Surrey trails division-leading Chilliwack by seven points and Prince George by three, although the Eagles have games in hand on both teams. The one that got away came back to haunt the Eagles Sunday afternoon at South Surrey Arena as Surrey-native Thompson stoned the Eagles early and often while posting his second shutout of the season. The Eagles did everything but score, as the dominated the proceedings, but could not find a solution for Thompson. In the last two periods of play, Surrey outshot Prince George 29-8, but were outscored 2-0 as the Spruce Kings headed north with two stolen points in the standings safely tucked away in the cargo bay of their bus. The only goal allowed by Eagles’ goalie Michael Santaguida was a seeing-eye special

Prince George Spruce Kings goalie Kirk Thompson stopped this shot and 40 others the Surrey Eagles fired his way in a 2-0 win in BCHL action Sunday. Thompson, a Surrey native, has two shutouts this season, both against the Eagles. (Photo: GARRETT JAMES) that somehow made it through a crowd of bodies in front of the net and into the goal early in the third period. “We outshot them 41-18 and lost 1-0 – well, 2-0 with an empty netter,” Erhart said. “He (Thompson) has two shutouts this year, one against us with 38 saves, and the other against us with 41 saves. He comes to play against us, that’s for sure. He stopped three breakaways and we couldn’t score on a five-on-three (power play). There was one backdoor chance we had where our guys were already raising their arms in the air and he slid across and the puck hit his helmet and then his shoulder and stayed out. It was

one of those nights I guess.” Sunday’s scoring drought was a sharp uturn from the scene Friday night at the same rink where it seemed every shot was finding the back of the net at both ends of the ice. The Eagles erupted for five second period goals against Powell River to take a seemingly commanding 5-2 lead. That feeling of pre-Christmas cheer quickly evaporated in the final frame as the Kings scored three goals on 10 shots to tie the game and force overtime. In the extra session, Kings goalie Jonah Imoo – another Surrey-native tending the pipes for a league rival – salvaged a point for Powell River by

stopping 10 shots to preserve the tie. “In fairness to both goalies, it was a 5-5 game but it probably should have been a 2-2 game,” Erhart said. “There were probably a couple goals that both goalies want back. That’s the way it goes, but I kind of wish we had saved one or two of those bounces for Sunday’s game. It would have made it a better weekend for us.” Demico Hannoun, Mason Blacklock, Stefan Burzan, Drew Best and Craig Wyszomirski each scored once for Surrey. The Eagles are now idle until Dec. 28 when they host Chilliwack at South Surrey Arena.

Phil Reimer’s

Golf report

It came as a surprise to a few experts when Tom Watson picked as the captain of the 2014 Ryder cup team. Apparently the selection committee did not have his name on the leaderboard for the job until he said about four weeks ago he would love to be selected. Up until then it had looked as though David Toms or Larry Nelson would get the job. Tom is not a kid at 63, but I don’t think it really matters. He speaks his mind, doesn’t suffer fools, and I doubt if you will see him with a posse like we have seen with other Ryder Cup captains. The selection of Watson means the PGA is departing from the normal way captains have been selected, which is generally in their 40s or 50s and at the end of their playing career. However, after the Americans had their head handed to them on a platter over many Ryder Cups of late it appears that it is time for a change. Keep in mind that Watson won five British Opens – all in Scotland – and the next Ryder Cup is being playing across the pond in Gleneagles, Scotland. Be sure to watch the Big Break on Tuesday night on Golf Channel. James Lepp of Abbotsford is in the final. Lots of money, a chance to play one tournament on the PGA Tour next year and lots of other goodies could come his way. It’s on at 6 p.m. Pacific. Now this has been over for awhile and the golfers who know the results but are sworn to secrecy and could be sued if they let the news out. If you see a lot of cars at James’ house you will know the result. Right in the middle of this column I have been forced to make my predictions for the 2012 golf season. Keep in mind that my record wouldn’t get me into a poker game at River Rock. The pick is based on guys who could make a difference in 2012. So I am not picking Tiger Woods or Rory McIlroy or Jason Dufner or the others in the elite category—they are going to be there, no doubt about it. But the two guys over 30 I think will crank it up in 2013 are Ian Poulter and Sergio Garcia. Ian has learned to keep his temper in his pocket (well mostly in his pocket) and Sergio is now the thinker out there. No running around like a mad man and no blaming everyone but himself when he loses. Maturity for both should give them an opportunity to win a couple in 2012 Can’t wait for the season to start in January next year. I hope you have a great holiday season, an even better 2013, with lots of surprises for you and the pros on the golf course — the good kind, of course. You can reach me at preimer@canwest.com

Hockey

Wotherspoon suits up for Canada Surrey’s Tyler Wotherspoon will be skating with the best players in the world over the Christmas break after he earned a spot with Canada’s National Junior Team. The Portland Winterhawks defenceman was among 23 players who were selected to play for the home and native land at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship in Ufa, Russia beginning on Boxing Day. Surrey native and Edmonton Oil

Kings goaltender Laurent Brossoit was one of the final cuts from the Canadian team. Canada’s National Junior Team departed for Europe on Dec. 15 and will Tyler Wotherspoon play in two precompetition games in Helsinki, Finland prior to the World Junior tourney.

Canada will play its first game of the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship on Boxing Day, Dec. 26 against Finland, a game that will be broadcast live by TSN. Canada has medalled at 14 consecutive IIHF World Junior Championships, including gold medal performances in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, silver medals in 1999, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2010 and 2011 and bronze medals in 2000, 2001 and 2012.

Lacrosse

National body takes stance against fighting The Canadian Lacrosse Association is taking steps to remove a black eye from Canada’s national summer sport by beefing up its fighting policy. The CLA has formally declared its opposition to fighting in the game and has amended its rulebook to turn any such altercation into automatic ejections for the participants. Instigators are subject to further disciplinary measures. The new rules are similar to penalties already in place for minor lacrosse, but are also applicable to the intermediate, junior and senior levels of the sport. The new rules will not be enforceable with the professional National Lacrosse League.

Ron McQuarrie, vice-president of the B.C. Lacrosse Association and a member of the CLA panel that recommended the changes, said players, parents and coaches have all expressed concerns about fighting in the past. “The Canadian Lacrosse Association has made one good first step,” he said. “Now we’ll see how it goes next year and, after that, we may look at moving forward from there. People do have valid concerns about using the rule to get good players off the floor by starting fights and we’ll have to look at that.” McQuarrie added that the new measures are actually more lenient than penalties already in place with minor lacrosse in this province. Minor players

in B.C. who fight are automatically ejected and suspended for two games. A second and this offences bring longer suspensions. “Fighting is not a major issue in minor lacrosse because there has always been penalties for it,” McQuarrie said. “It’s not a common occurrence in minor lacrosse, but it does happen, especially when you move into the 14- to 16-year-old age range. That’s not unique to lacrosse; hockey faces the same issue at that age. “We hate to have a heavy hand, but it’s part of the bigger picture and in lacrosse, we want to remove the thought process that fighting is part of the game.”

Council passes five-year budget Brandon Kostinuk Now contributor

Surrey city council passed the final adoption of Surrey’s five-year budget plan Monday morning, meaning residents will pay 2.9 per cent more in general taxes and $148 more in secondary suite fees. The budget notes that increases to drainage and sewer fees, water charges, plus the one per cent road levy and the 2.9 per cent general tax increase would add up to

$98.36 per household annually. Plus, owners of homes with secondary suites will now have to fork over $395 per year. The service fee increase is expected to bump up the annual revenue generated by it to $10 million from $7 million. The city also plans to invest an estimated $42 million in numerous capital projects, including repairs to Newton Athletic Park, a Cloverdale youth park and a multipurpose space in Fleetwood. The bulk of the money will go toward budgeting Guildford Pool.

The White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society has been left struggling to remain open for the holiday season after the bottom floor of its building was flooded with water six inches deep. The society, hosted out of a splitlevel home in White Rock, was flooded following a sump failure on the weekend of Dec. 2, said executive director and past mayor of White Rock, Catherine Ferguson. “We came in on the Monday morning to find our downstairs area flooded. It’s where we do a lot of our group work and where our clinical counselling goes Catherine Ferguson on,” said Ferguson. According to Ferguson, the damage is estimated at $20,000, with only some of that cost being covered by insurance. “Some of it we will have to take care of,” she said. “We’ll probably be looking at an increased deductible.” The damage includes desks that were sitting in water, drywall and carpet that had to be ripped up as well as massage tables used for patient relaxation. see FLOOD › page 3

Officer killed in crash was speeding

SPECIAL EDITION: In Dec. 24 issue, these kids call the shots

The RCMP officer killed last month in a car crash was speeding without his emergency lights on, according to a police investigation. The officer, Const. Adrian Oliver, was at the end of a night shift when he was involved in a motor vehicle accident while driving his police cruiser along 64th Avenue near 148th Street. According to a preliminary police investigation, GPS and video evidence indicate that Oliver, 28, was speeding while attempting to track down a stolen truck when he collided with a semitruck turning onto 64th Avenue. Oliver’s regimental funeral was attended by more than 6,000 people.

SUV hits girl, 7, at Surrey crosswalk A seven-year-old girl was sent to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries Sunday after being struck by an SUV at a crosswalk. The incident took place around 6 p.m. when the girl, a Newton resident, was crossing 74th Avenue at 140th Street with her father and sister. The driver of a Dodge Journey made a westbound turn into the crosswalk and struck the girl, who was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The driver was issued a ticket for not yielding to a pedestrian. This was the second such incident in less than a week, after another girl was hit during a hit-and-run collision at around 6 p.m. Thursday. A darkcoloured sedan clipped the girl with its driver’s side mirror while crossing 188th Street and 58th Avenue. The girl was taken to hospital with non-lifethreatening injuries.

Delta man and his dog killed in crash A Delta man was killed Sunday evening after his vehicle struck a light post along Highway 91. Luis Calderon Sanchez was driving on the westbound Nordel Way off ramp at around 10:30 p.m. when he lost control of his Toyota Corolla, spun and hit the light post with enough force to wrap the vehicle around it. Sanchez was pronounced dead at the scene. His dog, which was also in the vehicle, was also killed. RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Peter Thiessen said speed and poor weather are considered factors in the accident.

Students from Ms. Pesce and Mrs. Brister’s Grade 6/7 class at Latimer Road Elementary school in Cloverdale are excited to be sitting in the editor’s chair next week.

Flood reinforces need for new home ‹ from page 1

While the site is repaired, Crescent Gardens and the South Surrey & White Rock Chamber of Commerce have allowed the hospice society to use some of their space in order to remain open during the holidays, often an important time for hospices. “For people that are grieving and in need, we want to make sure we’re able to still help them, especially during the Christmas season,” said Ferguson, adding that she’s grateful for the community support they’ve received. “We’re just doing the best we can to make do.” Ferguson said the flooding is just another reminder that the hospice society needs to relocate sooner rather than later. “This is the second time in as many years that we’ve had a flood downstairs. It’s an old building that needs attention,” she said. “The reality is that we need a new supportive care centre; we have for quite some time for space reasons.” On top of the cost of the flooding, Ferguson said that the building’s roof is likely to need repair sometime soon, the

We have an aging community and there’s lots of need for a hospice here and demands are continuing to grow.”

As those demands grow, the hospice’s only option is to move into bigger and better facilities. “That’s something we will need the support of the community to put together,” said Ferguson. “That is the priority for the society.”

Shawn Wilson named Surrey school board’s new chair Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

The decision was made last week following a board meeting on Thursday where former chair Laurae McNally decided it was time for her to take a break from the role, and Wilson was voted in to replace her. “This is my 29th year as a school trustee and I have been chair more than one-third of my time as a trustee,” said McNally. “I’ve been chair 10 times and now I think it’s time for a break.”

I’ve been chair 10 times and now I think it’s time for a break. For McNally, whose most recent stint as chair spanned the past four years, she’d like to continue as a trustee who’s able to be more out in the education community rather than on the administrative side of things. “I would like to spend more time out in schools with students and teachers and not

have to go to 8 a.m. agenda meetings,” she said. “When you’re chair, you’re sort of on 24/7, you get emails at all hours of the day and night and you need to deal with them.” Surrey superintendent Mike McKay said McNally’s time as chair has been a boon for Surrey schools. “Laurae McNally has been an outstanding advocate for public education, she’s been a great leader of the board and a great spokesperson,” said McKay. “I feel advantaged to have been working with her and I think the district’s been well-served by her.” As for her successor, McNally said Wilson is more than capable of assuming the role. “He’s been chair in the past, he’s got all the experience needed,” she said.

The Delta board of education selected two-term trustee Laura Dixon as its new chairperson Tuesday. Dixon replaces Dale Saip, who recently announced he wouldn’t seek another year as chair after four years in the position. Dixon, who thanked Saip for his leadership, experience and insight, said good news would be coming from the district soon regarding its annual achievement contract. She added the district is also busy implementing its vision for education.

Wilson said he knows the responsibilities required and is looking forward to doing what he can to move Surrey’s education forward. “The board wants to have somebody in the position that wants to do it,” he said. McKay said Wilson would be well-suited to the role and looked forward to seeing him

NEWS Surrey

School district offers support following Connecticut shooting With the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting still fresh in the minds of everyone on both sides of the border, the Surrey school district was letting parents know that support and counselling was available, should their children need it. In a notice sent home with students Friday afternoon, the Surrey school district reminded parents that should their child feel anxious or need support after learning about that day’s shooting, resources were available from the district to address those needs. “We’ve done it in all cases since I’ve been here,” said Doug Strachan, district manager of communications. “Parents have asked us for support in situations like these before, so we routinely remind them we have help available.” Strachan said the notices are a result of parents requesting such information during similar events in the past. And while there have been two complaints received regarding the use of the

word “shooting” in the notice, Strachan said the word shouldn’t have made it into the notice. “We normally don’t try to get into details as to what occurred,” he said. “‘Shooting’ Doug Strachan was something we wouldn’t normally put in there; however, it was quickly written in the afternoon and slipped in there because of the tight timeline to get information to parents on a Friday.” As for how people around the district are doing, Strachan said people are rattled. “Obviously, everybody is shaken by something like this,” he said. As for whether or not teachers would be addressing the shooting with their students, Strachan said, “The approach is to stick to routines and keep an eye out and see if there are students in a state of anxiety. Otherwise things should be proceeding as normal.”

Sentencing hearing gets underway in Surrey court

Markita Kaulius held up a shredded softball uniform, that trauma doctors had to cut off of her 22-year-old daughter’s mangled body, for Natasha Leigh Warren to see. “That’s all I have left to hang onto,” the grief-stricken Surrey mother sobbed. “You left my daughter to die in the street.” Warren, 34, from North Delta is being sentenced in Surrey provincial court after pleading guilty to dangerous driving causing death, failing to remain at the scene of a crash and driving with a blood alcohol content over the legal limit causing death, in connection with the May 3, 2011 collision that killed Kassandra Marie Kaulius, 22, of Surrey. The sentencing hearing continues today. On Monday both families cried much and often as the court heard one heartbreaking victim impact statement after another, from Kaulius’ family. Crown prosecutor Crichton Pike told Judge Gurmail Gill that Warren drank “at least” a bottle and a half of wine while watching a Canucks versus Predators game earlier that night. Still wearing her Canucks’ jersey, Warren got behind the wheel of her company-issued white econo-line van shortly after 10 p.m. and slammed into Kaulius’ BMW sedan at 103 kilometres an hour. Kaulius was just three blocks from home, returning from a softball game, and had been waiting to make a legal left turn at intersection of 152nd Street and 64th Avenue. Most of her family left the courtroom as Pike described her injuries. The driver’s side of the BMW was caved in

by two feet, leaving the driver’s seat less than a foot wide. Pike said Kaulius died quickly of massive head injuries. Warren’s van stopped 45 metres away. The court heard a motorist asked her how she was, and she said she was fine, but when she saw the BMW she put her hand to her chest, looked like a “caged animal” and ran away. Pike said one witness said she appeared to be “drunk as a skunk.” Warren managed to hop over a chain link fence into some brambles and hid in a woodsy vacant lot. She was arrested and taken to the Surrey RCMP detachment, Pike said, where she was slurring and swaying, and blew twice over the legal limit. Aiming an eight-by-10 framed photo of her daughter at Warren, Markita Kaulius delivered a hear-wrenching victim impact statement. “Miss Warren, you took away her hopes, her dreams and her future,” she sobbed. “Parents are not supposed to see their children lying in a casket. “The pain is excruciating and I know it will never go away,” she cried. Pike refused to say, before the Now’s press time, what kind of sentence he’ll seek, but Markita and Victor Kaulius said outside court they heard the Crown will argue for a sentence of three and a half years in prison. Markita pleaded for people not to drink and drive. “We’ve got to stop tolerating this,” she told reporters. “Families are being destroyed.” tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

Economy spin hard to swallow InTheHouse Keith Baldrey

T

he B.C. Liberals keep using your money to tell you what a great job they’re doing managing the economy and creating jobs, but evidence keeps mounting that their claim to being financial wizards is questionable at best. First the B.C. government admitted its annual budget would have a much greater deficit than originally forecast. Then the latest job figures from Stats Canada showed the province actually lost more than 4,000 jobs last month. And then last week came the news that a leading financial firm thinks the province’s finances are starting to teeter on the brink of undesirable territory. That bad news, of course, came in the form of two financial downgrades by Moody’s Investor Services. While the financial firm kept intact the triple A credit rating for both the provincial government and BC Hydro, it dropped its outlook rating for both

from “stable” to “negative.” Both downgrades came because of concerns about the rising debt for both the province and the Crown corporation, combined with a sluggish economic performance that results partly from slumping revenues. Under the B.C. Liberals’ watch, the provincial debt has grown from $34 billion to a forecast of nearly $63 billion next year. B.C. Hydro’s debt has climbed from just more than $6 billion to more than $15 billion. Much of this debt accumulation is the result of an aggressive and ambitious capital spending program. Everything from new schools and hospitals to such big ticket items as the Sea-to-Sky Highway, the Port Mann Bridge, the Canada Line and the Vancouver Convention Centre have all helped balloon our provincial debt. BC Hydro has had to spend billions of dollars upgrading and maintaining its vast network of dams, transmission lines and generating stations. Few would quibble with much of this capital spending. Everyone wants a new or upgraded school

for their kids, new hospital expansions are greeted enthusiastically by local communities, and a reliable power supply needs ongoing maintenance. People may grumble about spending a lot of money on bridges and roads, until they begin using them. But also adding to our debt has been the cost of accumulated annual budget deficits, as the B.C. Liberals have chocked up a half dozen of them. It wasn’t supposed to be like this, of course. When the B.C. Liberals were in Opposition and the NDP was in power, they passed themselves off as economic-masters-inwaiting, while casting the New Democrats in the role of incompetent money managers. The truth is neither party has much to boast about when it comes to balancing the budget. Both parties

routinely racked up annual deficits while in office, and each struggled when the economy took any kind of nosedive (my own view is that governments get too much credit when times are good, and receive too much blame when things go bad). So Moody’s has now called out the B.C. Liberals on two fronts. Combined with that spotty track record when it comes to balancing the budget, it’s hard to see how that party can turn the next election campaign into being about which party is more competent at managing the economy. Still, there’s no doubt the B.C. Liberals will continue to beat their favourite drum about the so-called “dismal decade” of the NDP-ruled 1990s. But various economic statistics do not support the notion that one party is so much better than the other. It was amusing to see the

government trying to spin its way out of the bloody nose it got from Moody’s. There were lots of focus on the credit rating remaining intact, and virtually no mention of that downgrade of what the firm think the future holds for B.C.... And the future does not look particularly promising. The economy will slowly grow, the provincial debt will continue to climb, the government will likely run budget deficits for at least a couple more years (despite what it will claim in next year’s budget), and natural

resource revenues are unlikely to spring back to the levels they were at a few years ago. It’s hard to see Moody’s upgrading its outlook for B.C. back to stable anytime soon. But in the meantime, that taxpayer-funded ad campaign will continue to pat the government on the back about its economic wizardry. I have to wonder whether the voters will buy into any of that magic.

School shooting requires action, not just talk

Maria Szabo, Surrey

Casino bad idea for city The Editor, Opening a casino in South Surrey is not a very bright idea. As a student, young adult and daughter, I am concerned. It truly is a bad decision that Surrey council made. If the casino does open, many families will break apart due to the lack of communication and the increase of tension between family members. Instead of thinking about school and their future goals, students will be making plans with their friends to go to the casino. Moreover, the crime rate will go up. The people, who

will go there and come out with what they have won, will get mugged. This is already happening at other casinos. Also, because people will be getting easy money through the casino, people may end up turning to drugs. A new casino will also mean an increase in traffic, which means that there may be more accidents occurring. Opening a casino will make Surrey a bit more dangerous. Nausheen Khan, Surrey

Old NHL is gone forever The Editor, I never thought that I would feel this way. I used to follow the NHL as an escape from work, world conflicts and news about the financial crisis. Turning on a hockey game after work enabled me to disengage from all of the headlines about labour unrest. It is ironic that my one-time escape from all of this rhetoric has now manifested itself as something even more unpalatable, the NHL labour talks. All its ugliness now exposed. I will never look at a puck drop with the same innocence. To hear a

referee’s whistle blow now conjures up images of police confronting rioters on the streets – the smell of $6 concourse popcorn now seems burnt. Goodbye my old friend, I will remember the old NHL fondly, the new version has lost a fan.... Gerd Peters, Surrey

Eco Club is owed apology The Editor, Re: “Roses and rotten tomatoes,” the Now, Dec. 13. There has been a misunderstanding. I quote directly from the paper: “A recycling truck full of rotten tomatoes to the youth who are desecrating beautiful holly trees in Royal Kwantlen Park. They have made a muddy mess cutting down blackberry bushes and all these beautiful holly trees. Who would authorize such an activity? And when is Surrey parks going to pick up the mess?” As a student from Kwantlen Park Secondary and a participant from the group of “youth who are desecrating,” I feel you should hear our story. First, everything we do is approved by the City of Surrey. We do not go around cutting down the bushes for the fun of it – the blackberry bushes and holly trees are invasive species. These

species are choking out native species. This problem was recognized by a few of our classmates last year, and a club was started to help fight the problem. The name of the club is Eco Club, and we have been taking trips every Friday that the weather is nice to take out the invasive species. If this has just been noticed now, it is because we are finally beginning to make a difference in the ecosystem. We are a group of locally aware students who are just trying to make an environmentally-friendly impact. So perhaps an apology is in order because there are about 20 students who participate in this activity, excluding me. P.S. I love your newspaper. It is so local and awesome! Aneet Malhi, Surrey

Tomatoes back at you The Editor, Re: “Roses and rotten tomatoes,” the Now, Dec. 13. Regarding the reader who sent rotten tomatoes to “the youth desecrating beautiful holly trees in Royal Kwantlen Park.” I would like to clarify that we are removing invasive species (English holly and Himalyan blackberry) that are overpowering native

Whalley youths, spend some time to actually see what they are doing. If you are just passing by you do not really know what is happening unless you ask.

plants in the park. We are doing this with the approval of the City of Surrey parks and recreation department, using their equipment. This is part of our school’s community service projects. As an ecologically-conscious person, I’ll take the liberty of diverting the “recycling truck full of rotten tomatoes” to the compost.

Brianne Welch, Surrey

Bus snub is irrational The Editor, It is disappointing that the new bus service between Langley and New Westminster is not going to make any stops in Surrey. To get more cars off the road and provide the maximum convenience to the public, more express bus service is needed to run on that specific bus route. The decision to not stop the bus in Surrey is silly and irrational on the part of TransLink and the Ministry of Transportation. Overlapping layers of bureaucracy make irresponsible and shortsighted decisions. If the bus service is made attractive, convenient and economical, more people will use the system, which will result in fewer cars on the roads. In the long run it will help reduce pollution and congestion on the roads. There should be a long term plan in place. Alas, it is not so.

Shakti Ramkumar, Surrey

Get informed before judging The Editor, Re: “Roses and rotten tomatoes,” the Now, Dec. 13. Someone wrote that the youth “desecrating beautiful holly trees in Royal Kwantlen Park” should be given a recycling truck full of rotten tomatoes. To whomever wrote this, I don’t think you stayed to actually see what they were doing. I am not one of those youths, but I do know them. They are a part of the Eco Club in the high school there. They were in fact cutting down plants, but what they were in fact cutting down were the invasive species that are all over the that park. These youths are very kind and generous people; they are simply trying to make Surrey a better place. Please, before you judge

The Editor, I’ve been thinking about how much the people in Newtown lost – their children, their spirits and their feeling of safety. Those kids may have lost a friend, a teacher, a crush, a good night’s sleep – and some lost their lives, their next birthday, their freedom. Why is this happening again? The U.S. has had 11 incidents of mass shooting since 1966, resulting in the deaths of 187 people, according to Global. I am 18. Every year since I was 11, I take special time to pray for the Columbine massacre that happened in 1999 after learning about it on a news special I watched one morning before school. I was five when it happened, but that event affected me, even years later. Even though Colorado and Connecticut are a long way away from Vancouver, it still hits home. This is our society, our parents, our children and our teachers. It will be me, my children and my children’s teachers one day, unless we can put an end to the violence that always seems to take us by surprise. We shouldn’t be surprised anymore. We should be willing to take action.

COMMUNITY 459 blood donors needed in Surrey during ‘Holiday Miracle’ drive

With 2012 coming to an end and the New Year on the horizon, Canadian Blood Services is asking people to “Give a Holiday Miracle” by donating blood. Collecting blood during the holiday season is a challenge as many regular donors travel or are busy with other activities. Yet

the need for blood remains high because people still need life-saving surgeries, emergency care and even cancer treatments during this time. In the last two weeks of this year, Canadian Blood Services estimates a need of 25,000 units of blood across the country. To meet

Penguins team wins hockey contest 120412 Design - Cloverdale Magazine

0Q.//N6 /K.10*

Some young Surrey Penguins stirred up enough interest in a video they made to top an online contest among hockey teams in B.C. The Hockey 3 division team of seven-yearolds earned the most public votes – more than 10,000 of them – in an All Star Grants contest run by the Best Buy chain. The top 10 teams in the contest each earned a $2,000 grant, including sixth-place finisher

Cloverdale Eagles, a Hockey 4 division team. The Penguins’ winning video – edited by Ashna Sanghera, 10, whose brother Jordan plays on the team – showed team members being interviewed and dancing to “Gangnam Style.” The Penguins will use their $2,000 for player development. Nearly 300 teams participated in the contest.

Champagne Taste HOME CONSIGNMENT

Nurse Next Door

Contest aims to bring senior ‘Home for the Holidays’ The deadline is Wednesday, Dec. 19 for the “Home for the Holidays” contest, designed to help bring some Christmas spirit to those often forgotten in hospitals or extended care facilities. Through the inaugural contest, the local Nurse Next Door agency will bring a senior home for the holidays this year. Plans are to make the contest a yearly tradition. “For seniors living in medical facilities, often the reason they cannot make it home for the holidays is because they require the assistance of trained caregivers or medical staff,” said Jamie Sinclair, of Nurse Next Door Vancouver, an in-home senior care provider. “If the elderly patients’ family members are unable to help with their daily living activities and care needs, the senior may not be discharged.” The Home for the Holidays winning senior will be provided with two days of complimentary home-care services based on their individual needs. Nurse Next Door’s team can provide home-care services ranging from friendly

companionship, meal preparation, transportation and errand-running right through to around-the-clock medical care from a registered nurse. “After decades of celebrating the season with family and traditions, this time of year can amplify issues of loneliness and depression,” said Sinclair. “While it’s important to provide for seniors’ physical needs, what really excites us is knowing that we’ll be making their lives better at a time when they may spend Christmas alone.” Nurse Next Door Vancouver is accepting Home for the Holidays contest submissions via email until Dec. 19. Contest submissions of 300 words or less can be sent to homefortheholidays@ nursenextdoor.com. The winning senior will be announced and contacted on Dec. 20. “We want to make a senior’s holiday special,” said Sinclair. “Nurse Next Door can help with Christmas baking, holiday decorating or shopping – anything that would make this season special.”

FABULOUSLY GREEN Champagne Taste is the most exciting Go-To Furniture Consignment store in British Columbia and the first choice for people wishing to part with their gently used items.

COMMUNITY A kiss for creativity

Dr. Brian Gluvic

Naturopathic Physician Family Doctors Specializing in Diet, Nutrition and Natural Therapies

Q A

How do you treat constipation? The basic treatment for constipation is to increase dietary fiber and water consumption. When this is not enough, we address the underlying cause of constipation, an overstressed and under-functioning bowel. To reduce stress on the digestive tract and restore normal bowel function, we avoid adverse foods reactions with either a hypoallergenic diet or by food allergy testing and utilize a combination of supplemental fibers and nutritional stool softeners. For constipation that does not respond to these dietary and nutritional treatments, we restore normal bowel function with acupuncture, more aggressive digestive support and colon hydrotherapy. Colon Hydrotherapy involves flushing the colon with sterilized filtered water which results in the removal of accumulated toxins and stimulation of bowel activity.

2013 Tourism White Rock Art Calendar

Meet the Artists By Tracey Rayson

Sunset Pier – (Outside front cover) Nattawot Juttiwattananon: flickr.com/ people/83255230@N02 Inspired to capture landscapes in his native Thailand, Nattawot took up photography seven months ago. A White Rock resident for almost seven years, he believes nothing is more iconic to White Rock than the pier and the white rock. Shot in October, he used a 50-year-old Russian Helios 44-2 58mm f2 lens on his digital Olympus OMD EM5. “I walked around the beach thinking about what I wanted to shoot. I waited until the ‘golden time’ and was lucky enough to get a couple holding hands. The composition, moment, and colour were perfect — one shot, all at the right time.”

JANUARY - Sunset Over the Surf Tim Shields: HDRphotos.com Tim bought his first camera at 13 and has been hooked on photography ever since. A four-year White Rock resident, Tim captured this sunset with a wide angle lens and Nikon D90 on a cold April day. With high winds and huge waves, only minutes to spare, he snapped a few frames on the beach before wading into the water, waves crashing to his waist. “I’m sure people watching thought I was crazy, but I nailed the shot! I liked the way the sun reflected off the water and the size of the waves, which are rare for White Rock.”

FEBRUARY - Promenade in Snow Marilyn Trenchard: mtrenchardphoto.com With a studio in White Rock, Marilyn has lived in the community for 20 years, actively involved in photography for over 30 years. Her love of nature combined with an artistic eye enables her photographs to capture the splendour of the natural world. This photo was taken several years ago with a medium format camera, just west of the pier, mid afternoon, after a freak snowfall. “It was more difficult to get from my home than it was to take the single image I shot. For me, White Rock is a special place because of its picturesque and quiet beauty.”

MARCH - Wind Swept Ellen Atkin: EllenAtkin.com A self-taught photographer, Ellen became interested in photography at 13, after taking a studio darkroom course. An aerial and fine art photographer, she was a White Rock resident for five years. Ellen spends winters in Mexico and shoots sports action tourist photography of kiteboarders and windsurfers; she started shooting sports action in Whistler in the ‘90s. She’s currently exhibiting in La Ventana, Baja Sur. “Wind Swept was taken in March on a particularly windy day, while I lived on Marine Drive. I saw my neighbours gearing up to go windsurfing, so I walked out my front door and snapped this shot.”

APRIL – Mariners’ Light Joy Gerow: lensdancer.com Joy’s artistic talents stem from childhood where she holds fond memories of White Rock’s beach community. As a member of the Canadian Association of Photographic Art, she’s won four competitions, and her most treasured, the Judy Daniels’ Award of Excellence from the Langley Camera Club. In September, after dinner at Moby Dick, she stood at the pier’s edge and shot 50 frames of the water/boats/sunset with a Nikon D2x and 24120mm Nikkor lens. “There are two horizontal lines in the water to the right of the boats: two swimmers in full wetsuits coming in for the night — a delightful surprise!”

MAY - Birds Over the Bay Hugh Zhao: flickr.com/photos/hugh6 With 28 years of photography experience, Hugh specializes in portrait, fashion, and scenic images. Currently a photojournalist with Shandong Pictorial magazine, a famous periodical in China, Hugh has over 5,000 published photographs. A White Rock resident for just over a year, his love for the sea takes him to the ocean and beach to shoot during the morning and evenings. On an early spring morning in 2012, Hugh set out with his Nikon

D3. “I went down to the pier and saw numerous birds flying over the sea. Their beauty almost took my breath away, so I just kept shooting.”

JUNE – A Castle’s Last Stand Derek Hayes: derekhayesphotography.com A White Rock resident since ‘94, Derek got his first 35mm at age nine and now creates his own history books. Over 50 of his images appear in his latest, British Columbia: A New Historical Atlas. “Taken in May with a Canon 5D Mark II, the tide was coming in and people seemed desperate to get photos before the castle collapsed into the sea; it did — about 15 minutes after taking this photo. Including the couple added the necessary scale to the image. For this evening shot, the light was good during the last hour of daylight — the golden hour.”

JULY – Snowbirds Over White Rock Derek Hayes: derekhayesphotography.com “The Snowbirds were shot from the upper deck of my house, which overlooks Semiahmoo Bay. It was taken one evening in July, 2012 with my Sony R-1 camera. I fired off several hundred shots of the various acrobatics the Snowbirds performed, but this one ‘hit the spot’ more effectively than any of the others, and also, by including the Gulf Islands and Semiahmoo Bay with sailboats in it, gave the photo good context. I was lucky that a couple of the jets happened to be emitting orange smoke right at this point, which gives the photo a little more colour.”

AUGUST - A Day at the Beach Adrian Burden: adrianburden.com A budding photographer since high school, Adrian shoots weddings, events, and favourite hiking locales, with photos in Lonely Planet, Tourism Vegas publications, and the cover of Hike Chilliwack Tourism. A Surrey resident, Adrian enjoys frequent “photo walks” in White Rock and caught this Sea Festival image on a Nikon D3. “I walked up and down the beaches to shoot the many activities. Lots of people were out and about and I wanted to capture this by showing the sprawling crowds on East Beach. I found the perfect vantage point from the top of the hill between East and West Beach.”

SEPTEMBER - Reflections of East Beach Brandur Coombs: brandurcoombsphotography.com After a 20-year departure from his own dark room photo processing, Brandur picked up the camera three years ago with his wife’s encouragement. Since then, his photos have been featured in art exhibits, including the Surrey Arts Centre, “Mirror Mirror” and the Fraser River Discover Centre, “Photos of the Fraser.” A 10year White Rock resident, Brandur snapped this photo in October on his way home from work with a Pentax K-x. “I was drawn to the calmness of the water and captured the shot on the first take from the public boat dock at the end of the pier.”

his home. He ran down to the beach at low tide with his tripod and Nikon D90. “I only had about one minute of real sunset left so I raced to the water’s edge hoping to catch some reflection from the sun. With a wide angle lens, I lowered the tripod to about 12 inches off the sand and fired a series of three frames. I processed them into one HDR image that captured the dark and bright spots within the frame. It’s one of my all-time favourite photos.”

NOVEMBER - White Rock Eagles Stacey Kons: staceykonsphotography.com A photog hobbyist since youth, Stacey got serious with her craft over the past few years shooting landscapes, scenery, families and children. As a Cloverdale resident for 10 years, White Rock has always been a special place. One rainy and sleet-filled February day, Stacey spent 25 minutes shooting eagles on the East Beach with her Canon T1i wrapped in a scarf. “With a telephoto lens, I got some decent shots. I tried to balance taking the photos with watching the eagles to appreciate the amazing experience. I had a whole section of the beach to myself with the eagles — wonderful!”

DECEMBER - Winter Evening Wilma Maki: flickr.com/photos/wilmamaki Interested in art since childhood, Wilma began taking photographs in her 20s while travelling — loving nature photography best. Living in White Rock for the past 10 years has inspired her to resume her passion. With two photo books to her name, White Rock Impressions and Fraser River Estuary, she sells her images at the museum and Painters’ Square. This museum image, prerenovation, was taken at dusk with a Nikon film camera. “I like to wander about and wait for a scene to capture my attention — then I must be open to what is around me and be ready to see.”

Soar – (Inside back cover) Darlene Bellamy Seatter A self-describe hobbyist photographer, Darlene has been shooting nature (her favourite genre) for about four years: “attempting to capture tranquility at its best!” An ex-pat Winnipegian, Darlene has lived in White Rock for 42 years and captured the Soar shot during one of her frequent afternoon walks along the promenade and pier. On a brisk February day she noticed the unique cloud formation, and promptly left her house with her Canon T2i. “Thanks to the convenience of digital photography, I always snap numerous shots. I felt this one with the seagull passing by was ‘the’ shot I was looking for.”

Beautiful Ending - (Outside back cover) Danielle Holland: flickr.com/photos/89151131@N02

One January evening, Tim watched the makings of a sunset from

A new resident, Danielle moved to White Rock a year and a half ago, and has been welcomed into the community as if she has lived there her whole life. Her interest in photography spans many years and she shoots anything she finds to be beautiful — particularly nature and her family. “This photograph was taken one evening when my husband said, ‘You might want to grab your camera because this isn’t going to last long!’ I ran to my balcony, my Fujifilm FinePix S4000 in hand, and took the shot: a beautiful ending to a beautiful White Rock February day.”

BEAUTIFUL SEASIDE SCENES

Trevor Linden (right) plays goalie during a floor hockey game Thursday at Mary Jane Shannon Elementary. (Photo: JACOB ZINN) “It was really fun, and I love the Canucks so it was really exciting,” she said. “He was a good goalie. He let a goal in, but that’s OK.” For Linden, who will be opening a new fitness club in Surrey in the New Year, the donation was a chance to show that even small businesses can make a difference in their communities. “(This is) a message to all businesses, small or large, that they can make a difference in their own backyard,” he said. “Some of the needs of these schools for specific programming are pretty small and they allow any person or small business to make a difference, and that’s cool.” Mary Jane Shannon principal Lois Layton said the funds would be used for providing students with winter clothing, such as boots and coats. “We had sent in a request because have many students at our school that aren’t often able to come equipped during the winter months,” said Layton. “We’re just so appreciative. It just shows what a public personality Trevor is.”

The buzz was palpable as students of Mary Jane Shannon Elementary filed into their school’s auditorium for a surprise assembly. Rumour had it that a hockey player would be visiting the school for something, and children were left guessing who it would be. Would it be someone from the local Surrey Eagles? A homegrown hero such as Colin Fraser, or could it even be a Canuck? The kids didn’t have to wait long to see as Trevor Linden, Mr. Captain Canuck himself, casually strolled into the auditorium, much to the high-pitched delight of those gathered. Arriving at the school Thursday to present a donation of $2,500 on behalf of the Trevor Linden Foundation and the Vancouver Sun’s Adopt-a-School campaign, Linden wasn’t just there to present a cheque, he was also there to get down to business. With stick in hand, Linden took part in an impromptu game of floor hockey, taking on some of the school’s Grade 7s in several threeon-three matches. Given his size, Linden opted to stick to tending his team’s net, doing his best Roberto Luongo impression. “I should’ve been a goalie,” laughed Linden during the match. Following the hockey, Linden presented the donation to the school, bid his farewells and let the students get back to their studies. “They were tough, they made me sweat,” said Linden shortly afterward. “When you come to a school like this and you see the excitement and enthusiasm of the kids, to be able to make a difference in their lives is a pretty special thing to do, especially at this time of year.” Grade 7 student Danni said it was “awesome” to be able to play with Linden.

Eagles limp into break on four-game skid Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

It was feast or famine for the Surrey Eagles in two B.C. Hockey League home games last weekend, but the results of both encounters left the Birds with indigestion. The Eagles scored five times and had to settle for a 5-5 draw with the Powell River Kings on Friday night. Sunday afternoon the Eagles cranked 41 shots at Prince George Spruce Kings goalie Kirk Thompson and came away empty handed in a 2-0 loss to send the South Surrey lads into the Christmas break riding a four-game winless streak. “We ended up with one out of four points on the weekend and I know it sounds stupid, but we could easily have earned three points and possibly even all four,” said Eagles coach Matt Erhart. “It was one of those things where maybe we won a game earlier in the year where we made a comeback with a bounce or two in our favour and now things are just evening up. We deserved to win at least one of those games this weekend and but we came away with just one point.” The weekend results saw the Eagles drop to third place in the BCHL’s Mainland Division. Surrey trails division-leading Chilliwack by seven points and Prince George by three, although the Eagles have games in hand on both teams. The one that got away came back to haunt the Eagles Sunday afternoon at South Surrey Arena as Surrey-native Thompson stoned the Eagles early and often while posting his second shutout of the season. The Eagles did everything but score, as the dominated the proceedings, but could not find a solution for Thompson. In the last two periods of play, Surrey outshot Prince George 29-8, but were outscored 2-0 as the Spruce Kings headed north with two stolen points in the standings safely tucked away in the cargo bay of their bus. The only goal allowed by Eagles’ goalie Michael Santaguida was a seeing-eye special

Prince George Spruce Kings goalie Kirk Thompson stopped this shot and 40 others the Surrey Eagles fired his way in a 2-0 win in BCHL action Sunday. Thompson, a Surrey native, has two shutouts this season, both against the Eagles. (Photo: GARRETT JAMES) that somehow made it through a crowd of bodies in front of the net and into the goal early in the third period. “We outshot them 41-18 and lost 1-0 – well, 2-0 with an empty netter,” Erhart said. “He (Thompson) has two shutouts this year, one against us with 38 saves, and the other against us with 41 saves. He comes to play against us, that’s for sure. He stopped three breakaways and we couldn’t score on a five-on-three (power play). There was one backdoor chance we had where our guys were already raising their arms in the air and he slid across and the puck hit his helmet and then his shoulder and stayed out. It was

one of those nights I guess.” Sunday’s scoring drought was a sharp uturn from the scene Friday night at the same rink where it seemed every shot was finding the back of the net at both ends of the ice. The Eagles erupted for five second period goals against Powell River to take a seemingly commanding 5-2 lead. That feeling of pre-Christmas cheer quickly evaporated in the final frame as the Kings scored three goals on 10 shots to tie the game and force overtime. In the extra session, Kings goalie Jonah Imoo – another Surrey-native tending the pipes for a league rival – salvaged a point for Powell River by

stopping 10 shots to preserve the tie. “In fairness to both goalies, it was a 5-5 game but it probably should have been a 2-2 game,” Erhart said. “There were probably a couple goals that both goalies want back. That’s the way it goes, but I kind of wish we had saved one or two of those bounces for Sunday’s game. It would have made it a better weekend for us.” Demico Hannoun, Mason Blacklock, Stefan Burzan, Drew Best and Craig Wyszomirski each scored once for Surrey. The Eagles are now idle until Dec. 28 when they host Chilliwack at South Surrey Arena.

Phil Reimer’s

Golf report

It came as a surprise to a few experts when Tom Watson picked as the captain of the 2014 Ryder cup team. Apparently the selection committee did not have his name on the leaderboard for the job until he said about four weeks ago he would love to be selected. Up until then it had looked as though David Toms or Larry Nelson would get the job. Tom is not a kid at 63, but I don’t think it really matters. He speaks his mind, doesn’t suffer fools, and I doubt if you will see him with a posse like we have seen with other Ryder Cup captains. The selection of Watson means the PGA is departing from the normal way captains have been selected, which is generally in their 40s or 50s and at the end of their playing career. However, after the Americans had their head handed to them on a platter over many Ryder Cups of late it appears that it is time for a change. Keep in mind that Watson won five British Opens – all in Scotland – and the next Ryder Cup is being playing across the pond in Gleneagles, Scotland. Be sure to watch the Big Break on Tuesday night on Golf Channel. James Lepp of Abbotsford is in the final. Lots of money, a chance to play one tournament on the PGA Tour next year and lots of other goodies could come his way. It’s on at 6 p.m. Pacific. Now this has been over for awhile and the golfers who know the results but are sworn to secrecy and could be sued if they let the news out. If you see a lot of cars at James’ house you will know the result. Right in the middle of this column I have been forced to make my predictions for the 2012 golf season. Keep in mind that my record wouldn’t get me into a poker game at River Rock. The pick is based on guys who could make a difference in 2012. So I am not picking Tiger Woods or Rory McIlroy or Jason Dufner or the others in the elite category—they are going to be there, no doubt about it. But the two guys over 30 I think will crank it up in 2013 are Ian Poulter and Sergio Garcia. Ian has learned to keep his temper in his pocket (well mostly in his pocket) and Sergio is now the thinker out there. No running around like a mad man and no blaming everyone but himself when he loses. Maturity for both should give them an opportunity to win a couple in 2012 Can’t wait for the season to start in January next year. I hope you have a great holiday season, an even better 2013, with lots of surprises for you and the pros on the golf course — the good kind, of course. You can reach me at preimer@canwest.com

Hockey

Wotherspoon suits up for Canada Surrey’s Tyler Wotherspoon will be skating with the best players in the world over the Christmas break after he earned a spot with Canada’s National Junior Team. The Portland Winterhawks defenceman was among 23 players who were selected to play for the home and native land at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship in Ufa, Russia beginning on Boxing Day. Surrey native and Edmonton Oil

Kings goaltender Laurent Brossoit was one of the final cuts from the Canadian team. Canada’s National Junior Team departed for Europe on Dec. 15 and will Tyler Wotherspoon play in two precompetition games in Helsinki, Finland prior to the World Junior tourney.

Canada will play its first game of the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship on Boxing Day, Dec. 26 against Finland, a game that will be broadcast live by TSN. Canada has medalled at 14 consecutive IIHF World Junior Championships, including gold medal performances in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, silver medals in 1999, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2010 and 2011 and bronze medals in 2000, 2001 and 2012.

Lacrosse

National body takes stance against fighting The Canadian Lacrosse Association is taking steps to remove a black eye from Canada’s national summer sport by beefing up its fighting policy. The CLA has formally declared its opposition to fighting in the game and has amended its rulebook to turn any such altercation into automatic ejections for the participants. Instigators are subject to further disciplinary measures. The new rules are similar to penalties already in place for minor lacrosse, but are also applicable to the intermediate, junior and senior levels of the sport. The new rules will not be enforceable with the professional National Lacrosse League.

Ron McQuarrie, vice-president of the B.C. Lacrosse Association and a member of the CLA panel that recommended the changes, said players, parents and coaches have all expressed concerns about fighting in the past. “The Canadian Lacrosse Association has made one good first step,” he said. “Now we’ll see how it goes next year and, after that, we may look at moving forward from there. People do have valid concerns about using the rule to get good players off the floor by starting fights and we’ll have to look at that.” McQuarrie added that the new measures are actually more lenient than penalties already in place with minor lacrosse in this province. Minor players

in B.C. who fight are automatically ejected and suspended for two games. A second and this offences bring longer suspensions. “Fighting is not a major issue in minor lacrosse because there has always been penalties for it,” McQuarrie said. “It’s not a common occurrence in minor lacrosse, but it does happen, especially when you move into the 14- to 16-year-old age range. That’s not unique to lacrosse; hockey faces the same issue at that age. “We hate to have a heavy hand, but it’s part of the bigger picture and in lacrosse, we want to remove the thought process that fighting is part of the game.”

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
