The son of poor Italian immigrants, Martinez and his three sisters grew up on a farm in the middle of Israel's Negev desert and subsisted largely on the rabbits they raised. "Thanks to bunnies, we survived, so I owe a lot to bunnies," he said. "Basically, bunnies saved our lives." The Steveston veterinarian will spend most of this Labour Day weekend spaying and neutering 40 bunnies from the University of Victoria before they are shipped to the Wild Rose Rescue Ranch in eastern Texas. "Bunnies are my fort�," said Martinez, who made the switch to vegetarianism at age 10 and decided to dedicate his life to animals, later studying to be an animal doctor in Italy. UVic has long had an overpopulation of feral rabbits on campus. The university euthanized 104 of them last May, prompting animal rights groups to fight against a largescale cull. The Ministry of Environment recently granted a permit to one group, allowing them to transport up to 1,000 rabbits off campus. Because the ministry classifies rabbits as wildlife, not pets, the animals cannot normally be given over to a rescuer. On Thursday Sorelle Saidman and Laura-Leah Shaw of the ad hoc organization TRACS for Texas-bound Bunnies, were busy unloading 40 floppy-eared critters from the back of a pickup truck.

The Richmond Review � Page 3 Salmon can plant to seal up shop Despite bountiful sockeye run, Richmond factory set to close by Christine Lyon Staff Reporter This year's Fraser River sockeye run is the largest in almost 100 years, but not everyone in the salmon industry is profiting from the record return. Forty employees at a Richmond salmon can plant face uncertain job futures after learning their factory will close down in the new year. Ball Corp. announced plans on Wednesday to consolidate the production equipment in its Richmond plant at 1700 No. 6 Rd. Opened in 1985, the plant produces millions of steel food cans annually, supplying 100 per cent of Canadian salmon can requirements and more than 50 per cent of the Alaskan market. It will stop production during the first quarter of 2011 and its customers will be served by other Ball facilities. The 40 employees will be offered outplacements and severances. "Over the past two decades, our manufacturing operations in the Richmond plant have decreased as market demand and customer needs have changed," stated Michael W. Feldser, president of Ball's metal food and household products packaging division, Americas, in a news release. Headquar tered in Broomfield, Colo., Ball Corp. is a supplier of rigid metal packaging products and services, primarily to the food and beverage industry. After disposing of its building and land in Richmond, the company expects the closure to be cash positive by $8 million US. Pilates gives back movement At age 10, Aurora Hull was diagnosed with scoliosis by Rebekah Hammond Contributor With two metal rods along her spine, Aurora Hull, 27, didn't think she'd ever regain flexibility. But through pilates, she did. "Through pilates, I found my ability to move again," said Hull, who recently joined the Pilates Group in Steveston as an instructor. "I wasn't as stiff and rigid as I made myself think." At 10 years old, Hull, originally from Sante Fe, N.M., was diagnosed with scoliosis--curvature of the spine. Despite her condition, Hull remained active, but had to be more careful. "It was always in the back of my mind that I had to be a little bit more cautious than other athletes," Hull said. As she got older, the curvature worsened and began affecting her heart and lung function. Hull underwent surgery at Boston's Children's Hospital when she was 14 and had two titanium rods placed on either side of her spine to straighten it. After surgery, she struggled to find something to keep her active--something that didn't impact the rods or her spine. "At that age, you want to be out doing stuff and being active," Hull said. Hull eventually met pilates instructor Michele Larsson, founder of Core Dynamics, who also had scoliosis. Larsson worked one-on-one with Hull to help her strengthen her back and spine. "(Larsson) really stabilized my spine," Hull said. "There wasn't much rotation or bending, it was just to strengthen the muscles around the spine and then I added little bits of rounding, arching, side bending and rotation." The stiffness began to disappear, so did the thought of having rods in her back. She began training to become a teacher and is now instructing at the Pilates Group on No. 2 Road, a studio started by Elizabeth Burke. "Already we've learned so much from each other," Hull said. "We compliment each other really well." Burke, who danced with the National Ballet and Royal Winnipeg Ballet School, took up pilates because her rigorous ballet training had "really pushed" her body. Burke got her teaching certification from renowned pilates instructor Diane Miller and taught in Hong Kong for awhile. "That's when I really got the bug and wanted to have my own studio," said Burke, who started her studio in 2005. "Dance was very self-absorbed while pilates is about giving back." Bunnies on their way to Texas From Page 1 Christine Lyon photo Joseph Martinez holds one of the bunnies that arrived at his Steveston clinic on Thursday. Stacks of cages quickly filled the small waiting room at Martinez's Little Paws Animal Clinic on Second Avenue and Chatham Street. This is a trial run. The Texas ranch agreed to take 1,000 bunnies, but the logistics of getting that many rabbits down south are difficult. The ministry permit lets TRACS take possession of a maximum 96 bunnies at once, after which the group has seven days to sterilize and ship them to Texas. The task is difficult considering the group relies on donations. "You can't keep making these big trips, there's no money to keep shipping rabbits down there," said Saidman. Martinez is one of only three vets who can perform the surgeries, according to the ministry permit. "We basically have to do a whole whack of fundraising and try to get the ministry to add more vets and give us more time," said Said- man. Martinez has to complete all the operations by Tuesday so the bunnies can cross the border. They will be housed in a Washington State holding facility before making the long drive to Texas. It takes about one hour to spay or neuter each bunny, including the anesthetic, operation and recovery time. That means Martinez will work 10- or 12-hour shifts all weekend, while still caring for his regular clients. Though he is happy to help save the UVic bunnies, the donations he has so far received are barely enough to cover basic expenses and he is seeking further support. In April, Richmond council banned the sale of rabbits in stores as a way to reduce the number of abanded domestic rabbits in city parks. Local politicians are also asking other B.C. municipalities to get behind a ban on the retail sale of rabbits. Read The Richmond Review print edition online.

Registered Music Teacher's Association B.C. loathes HST: poll providing students many REGISTERED MUSIC TEACHERS ASSOCIATION Residents report higher costs, reduced spending by Jeff Nagel and Tom Fletcher Black Press Seventy-one per cent of B.C. residents surveyed in a new Angus Reid poll say they're buying less as a result of the Harmonized Sales Tax. More than two-thirds of B.C. respondents said the HST has severely or moderately harmed their household finances, citing higher costs of dining, groceries, cellphone bills and clothing. Only one in 20 people polled believe government projections of lower prices over time as a result of the 12 per cent HST, which was implemented July 1. Angus Reid officials say the negative view of the HST appears to run deeper in B.C. than Ontario, despite the fact Ontarians are harder hit because their government didn't exempt gasoline and electricity bills from the HST. The pollsters' cite the "palpable" animosity in B.C., where they found 75 per cent feel the government did a very bad job of handling the HST. "The public is almost universal in panning the way the tax was implemented and explained by the provincial administration." Earlier this week it was revealed that Finance Minister Colin Hansen received a briefing document on the HST two months before the 2009 election. Hansen told Black Press Wednesday he doesn't remember getting the paper. B.C. NDP leader Carole James called that "ridiculous." "It's worse than `the dog ate my homework,'" James said. "He didn't read his documents, he wasn't paying attention to them, he wasn't thorough about looking at the documents on the HST?" The Aug. 16-17 online survey included 803 B.C. residents and a similar number in Ontario. The margin of error is estimated at plus or minus 3.5 per cent. performing opportunities and recital experience, preparing students for festivals, examinations, competitions, and master classes; recognizing students' accomplishments, awarding trophies, certificates and scholarships.

The Onni Group of Companies submitted a formal rezoning application to the city on Aug. 26 in hopes of erecting two residential towers--10 and 12 storeys--on its Bayview Street property, east of No. 1 Road. Residents can learn more about the plan and voice their concerns on Sept. 9 from 3 to 6:30 p.m. at the Steveston Community Centre, 4111 Moncton St. "We're going to have all the consultants, our architect, our landscape architect, Onni staff on hand to answer any questions," said Onni's development manager Tim Orr. The company will display presentation boards in the gymnasium detailing the plan to rezone the last of its Imperial Landing parcels. Current zoning allows a maximum of six four-storey buildings on the site, with ground-floor space reserved for commercial tenants that support the maritime industry. Under the new high-rise proposal, the entire development would be residential and contained in two buildings. As part of the project, Onni would donate two acres of land to the city as a potential park site and contribute $500,000 to the community centre. There's no word yet on when council will consider the application. "The city requested us to go to public open house before they will give us any timelines for anything," Orr said. Residents have so far expressed mixed opinions, many concerned the proposed towers would block the view of nearby apartments. "It's a very kind of contentious property," said Orr. "Over the years we've had a lot of Imperial Landing residents and Steveston waterfront residents really wanting that to be dedicated as park or a portion of it as park, so that is why we came in with this rezoning," he said. If Onni gets the green light to go ahead with construction, the 200 new homes would be highly sought after by buyers, according to a local real estate agent. "I think there'd be huge demand for it," said Sean Lawson, owner of the Re/ Max at 12235 No. 1 Rd. and a Steveston resident. And it all comes down to location, location, location. "This would be the prime apartment building in Richmond," Lawson said, calling Steveston the Granville Island of Richmond. Better Grades Happier Kids Grade 1 - 12 It can start happening today! With Oxford's personalized programs and low teacher-student ratio, your child will see results almost immediately. - Improved Con dence - Higher Self-Esteem Open house �Thursday, Sept. 9 from 3 to 6:30 p.m. at Steveston Community Centre, 4111 Moncton St. Water-facing units would have unobstructed views of the Fraser River, Shady Island, Mount Baker, the Cascade Mountains, the Gulf Islands and even Vancouver Island. Demand would also be fuelled by Steveston's lack of "new inventory." "We just have a very limited amount of land and a very limited amount of supply," Lawson said. He thinks the latest rezoning application is a good compromise. "By going higher, you're going to leave a bunch of green space, which is always nice, and the people who are there now will retain their views." Onni scrapped the idea of commercial space in favour of residential density--a move that Lawson said could benefit local businesses. "It will tend to allow the village itself to prosper more without the additional competition of that added retail space." 7380 WESTMINSTER HWY., RICHMOND (near Minoru Blvd.) www.oxfordlearning.com 604-233-5566 Half Day Phonics Program (Ages 3-6 yrs) Oxford's Little Readers� half day programs offer an enriched, individualized curriculum introducing three to six year olds to reading.

McMath Secondary student Nadia Dale ate her recess snack in the bathroom on her first day of Grade 8. "Grade 8 was kind of scary for me because I didn't know what to do," said Dale, who's in Grade 10 this year. "It took me a while to warm up and get involved (at school)." Dale wishes someone had encouraged her to try new things. That's why she's volunteering to be a Link leader for McMath's first annual Link Crew Grade 8 Orientation. Dale is one of 80 Grade 10, 11 and 12 student volunteers involved in the orientation at school when classes begin Tuesday. The purpose of the new orientation program is to help Grade 8 students transition to high school life and meet current McMath students. "We'll be trying to get them hyped up," Dale said. "We have a whole bunch of leadership activities and games that have quite profound messages to help them adjust and deal with stress." The morning will kick off with an assembly, after which new students will be divided into smaller groups. Within the groups, Link leaders will introduce themselves to the new students telling about their own experience as new students, giving advice on how to adjust to high school life, and showing them around the building. The orientation is also designed to give new students an idea of what school clubs and programs are available. "High school provides so many opportunities such as sports, theatre and clubs," Dale said. "We want to tell eighth graders to go for it from the beginning because there are so many things to do." The Link Crew's responsibilities will extend beyond initial orientation. "We'll be going to school events and pep rallies and showing that it's good to support your school," said Link leader Jacob Quail, a Grade 12 student. Quail doesn't look at the Link Crew just as a responsibility, but also as an opportunity to build friendships. "If kids need to talk, I'll be telling them when I'll be available," he said. "I'm hoping for some of them to become good friends with us." Link leaders phoned the kids that would be in their group for the year before orientation. "One was very enthusiastic and excited," Quail said. "The other wasn't as enthusiastic, but that's OK. We're looking to break down those barriers." The program is also bringing students from older grades together. "We don't usually communicate a lot with other grades," Quail said. "With this, you have something more to talk about. It's communication between grades and bringing people together." Inspiration for the Link program came from the American Boomerang Project that implements a similar elementary-to-high school program in over 1,500 high schools. According to DiAnne Simonson, R.A. McMath leadership instructor, mounting evidence suggests if students have a positive experience in their first year, their chance for success increases dramatically. McMath is the first Richmond school to implement the Link program. "From my experience, transitioning to high school can be a bit overwhelming," Simonson said. "I think it's a challenge for them to go from having maybe two to three teachers to having as many as eight teachers." joy Limited Time Offer!

"Kids are excited about going back to school," said Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley in a news release. "They are more focused on seeing their friends again than they are with looking both ways before crossing the street." School zones will once again be busy places and drivers adjusting to fall routines are advised to drive carefully. "We don't get an increase of children being hit by vehicles," Turley said. "But the likelihood of collisions increases because of more traffic." RCMP will be out in full force around schools and handing out tickets with a zero tolerance approach. Tickets won't be limited to drivers. Pedestrians are also asked to be careful and will be fined as well for violations such as not obeying crossing signals. "When people are crossing the street, they want to make sure they're making eye contact with the drivers," said Jacqueline Tokaryk, ICBC road safety co-ordinator for Richmond. "It's important to pay attention to what's going on around you, so don't have earphones plugged in or be talking on the cellphone." Tokaryk also cautions drivers to pay attention to what cars ahead of them are doing. "If a vehicle in front of you is stopped, be aware that someone might be crossing the road in front of them," she said. "You see some drivers scooting around the vehicle, but don't because it may mean a pedestrian is crossing." ICBC also makes road safety information packages and learning materials available to teachers for free to use in classroom learning. Richmond School Dis- RCMP road reminders � Marked school zones have a speed limit of 30 km/h during the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. unless otherwise posted. � Speeding in a school zone will result in fines from $196 to $483. � Failing to yield the right of way to a pedestrian will result in a fine of $167. � Pedestrians failing to obey crossing signals or who cross at locations other than a crosswalk can be fined $109. � Use of a hand-held electronic device while operating a motor vehicle is prohibited and will result in a fine of $167. � A driver failing to ensure a child is properly restrained will result in a fine of $167. trict also cautions drivers to use care in school zones.

They set up a test of just how well it would work on Wednesday. One student would cycle between the Surrey campus on 72 Avenue in Newton and the Langley campus. Another, an experienced marathoner, would run the distance. The third student would take transit. Kwantlen students will vote on whether to join the UPass system in October. The cyclist came in first--doing the ride between campuses in 59 minutes. The runner wasn't too far behind, at one hour and six minutes. Meanwhile, the student using the transit system straggled in third--at one hour and 19 minutes. Clearly, most students will not be running or cycling between campuses very often. Weather conditions in the winter months can make that very difficult. Yet many will be taking the bus--and this shows just how frustrating an experience that can be. U-Pass or not, a trip that takes close to 90 minutes to cover about 20 kilometres isn't much of a bargain. The trip between Kwantlen campuses is not an anomaly in the South Fraser region. Despite the fact that residents here pay TransLink gas and property taxes at the same rate as those elsewhere in the Metro Vancouver region, service levels are significantly lower. And students who take classes at multiple campuses are in tough. Trying to make it to a class in Langley or Cloverdale by bus--on the same day as taking a class in Richmond--is, at the very least, a trying exercise in patience. Kwantlen students are learning some valuable lessons, and teaching the community some lessons as well. One of those lessons is that transit service in some areas is completely inadequate. --Black Press High-rises, cob ovens, Chinese signs: see letters at richmondreview.com. K wantlen Polytechnic University students have put the transit system to the test, and it has been found sadly wanting.

Math, science, art, language, physical education, we covered it all. Sometimes when we think about education, we forget about the all important summer learning and the opportunity for child's play. And when my kids are faced with that quintessential "what I did for my summer vacation" this September, they'll have plenty to write about. Andrea Phillpotts is a Richmond writer and teacher.

I've just tried to make my first batch of canned peaches and from the looks of the place, the peaches won. Still, I'm eager to keep on learning and am proud of myself for having come this far. For those of you who grew up with canning, watching your mothers or grandmothers can, you can have a laugh. On my first attempt, I blanched the skin off the peaches first before trying to remove the pits. See Page 9 M Published in Richmond every Thursday and Saturday by Black Press Ltd.

S a t u r d a y, S e p t e m b e r 4 , 2 0 1 0 The Richmond Review � Page 9 opinion BPA lining can leach into food From Page 8 The result was a sticky mush of goo when the peaches disintegrated between my fingers as I tried to cut the seed out. Luckily, after a quick phone call to a friend who cans, the instructions were given. "Cut peaches in half, twist, pull or cut out the seed & then blanch." I have yet to see this written in a book anywhere. My own family didn't can, otherwise all of this wouldn't be such a mystery. I'm pretty sure that's the case for any immigrant from a tropical country. Here in North America, where we traditionally don't grow food year-round, families were once only able to enjoy fruit in the winter if they preserved it. To see this in action is quite a sight. I had all four burners going last night: one for the syrup, one for the hot water bath, one for the blanching water and one to keep the lids and screw tops warm. The windows of my kitchen fogged up. I now see why some people can on their barbeques outside! I know what you're thinking. Canned peaches are probably less than $2 in the store. So why bother? As I nursed my burned fingers last night, I was starting to feel the same way until my friend Michelle Li e-mailed me an article: "The seven foods experts won't eat." What was at the top of the list? Canned tomatoes. It seems the bisphenol A (BPA) lining in canned tomatoes leaches into the food. So, as a health precaution, the article suggested only purchasing tomatoes processed in glass jars. Not very easy to find at my local IGA. So, there's now a 20 pound box of tomatoes that I scored at Steveston Farmers Market waiting to go. Canning and preserving food is certainly a skill that I think is worth knowing. But, if you don't have the experience in your own family or set of friends, you're not out of luck. Every Tuesday, from 5 to 7 p.m., a group of budding canners meets at Garratt Wellness Centre. Under the tutelage of Karen Dar Woon and Ian Lai, the group has transformed beans, blueberries and tomatillos into pickles, jams, and salsas. The finished products are donated to community meal programs or the food bank. I'll be bringing my tomatoes tonight so that Karen can walk me through the whole process. The Garratt Wellness Center is located at 7504 Chelsea Pl. Free childcare is available and the group will be meeting until at least the middle of October.

The event on Wednesday, Oct. 13 will be held at St. Alban's Church, 7260 St. Albans Rd., between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. This special day will commence with a pancake breakfast at 9 a.m. and continue with an opening ceremony. Richmond's project is to connect people who are homeless to services they may have difficulty accessing on the street. Service providers will try to deliver as many of their services on-site. In Richmond, we are fortunate to have community groups and corpora- repairs, eye-glass repairs, message, reflexology and for their enjoyment entertainment from local artists. Of course, a meal and nutritious snacks will be provided along with a knapsack with hygiene kits and warm clothing. Our goal is to create connections with people that can improve their quality of life and link them to permanent housing solutions. Also on site will be many community agencies that can provide information such as addiction services, youth services, income assistance services, mental health and employment services. This is a wonderful opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people who are homeless in Richmond. Faith Communities first Homeless Connect event was a success and provided needed service to many. It also provided a unique opportunity for Richmond service providers to come together under one roof and forge new relationships. This event also marked the start of a new way of connecting people who are homeless and tracking important information in a way that will help us better understand the needs of people who are homeless in Richmond. Faith Communities would appreciate help in providing volunteer hours at the event and donating warm clothing in good condition and hygiene products. If you can provide any of the above, or a monetary donation, please contact Broadmoor Baptist Church (604-277-8012). Take a moment to reflect on how blessed we are.

Call 1-888-Scouts-Now to be directed to the office closest to you or visit scouts.ca. � What are the costs to join Scouting? Costs vary from group to group, so your local contact is the best one to advise you. You can expect to pay a basic fee to join, in addition to uniform costs. As the year progresses there may be extra costs associated with camping and special events. � Is there financial aid for families of limited means to assist with the costs of joining Scouts? Yes. Local councils can assist you, and there is also the Scouts Canada Foundation's established fund, No One Left Behind, which may provide assistance for families in need for specific Scouting costs. � I want to learn about becoming a leader. What's the process and what's involved? Contact the local Scouting council office in your area. You will need to provide three personal references, a clean criminal record, and you'll have to undergo a selection interview. If accepted as a volunteer, you will take training that will teach you what you need to know to become a great leader. � Does Scouts Canada admit both boys and girls? Yes. Scouts Canada has had completely co-ed programs since 1998. � Do you have to believe in God to join Scouts Canada? Is Scouting a Christian organization? No, but you must have a basic spiritual belief. Spirituality has been one of the three main principles of Scouting around the world since its inception 100 years ago. Scouts Canada welcomes members of many different faiths and denominations; we are proud of our commitment to diversity. That said, you need not belong to an organized religion, but all leaders and youth must take the Scout Promise in good faith, and leaders should be able to include some form of spirituality in their program for the youth.

Being on the sea does something for me and I know it makes us all feel younger--despite that we're in our mid-60s. Scrambling over stones and searching through the immense driftwood on wild beaches was fun. One of the highlights of the trip was to finally land on a beach on the Brooks Peninsula. I have been to the Kyuquot area at least five times in the last 20 years but because of storm winds we never even got close to landing there in kayaks and canoes. This summer was different in that we were in larger boats and there was hardly any wind. We lit a fire to cook lunch and eat ourselves silly. After the meal, somebody grabbed a baseball bat that was being used as a halibut bonker and we started to play baseball in the sand. A round fishing float about the size of a softball worked well. Broken parts of large plastic floats were used for the bases. The summer was also different in that it wasn't, "We will try to get to Brooks." Instead it was, "We will get to Brooks." It wasn't a big deal for me to try and catch a large spring. The boat I was in caught several nice 10 pounders and hatchery coho that you're allowed to keep. Plus ling cod and red snapper. One of the woman in the group, Michiko, loved to cook. She took command of the kitchen on two nights and made us the best Japanese food. Midway through the week she started hinting about her desire to catch a big salmon to take home. When two boatloads of us went off to the Brooks to play, she went with a party of three men to do some serious fishing--21 miles off shore. Hours later when we returned to the dock she was there to greet us with her news. Michiko's boat landed eight large springs. And the biggest one was 44 pounds which she brought in herself. Quite a feat for a small woman who two men had to hang onto so she wouldn't be pulled over board. When I returned home a week later I felt happy after being away and spoilt by the beauty of the place. I had no idea what was happening on the river here. No idea that there was an amazing sockeye run--the biggest in almost 100 years taking place. I won't forget my trip to Kyuquot. Nor will I ever forget the astonishing site of seeing millions of sockeye jumping and our river crowded with gillnetters. The excitement to witness this historic return of salmon is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I wasn't watching whales this week--I was out every day salmon watching.

Police were contacted when a young man tried to withdraw cash from his bank account at a bank machine only to discover his daily withdrawal limit had already been reached. The victim apparently never received his permanent debit card after opening a new account--and police believe the card was stolen from the mail. He soon learned someone had made $1,400 in purchases from two Richmond merchants with his debit card. Richmond RCMP obtained surveillance video, which it believes captures the black male responsible for the crime. Anyone with information is asked to contact Const.

I Volunteer: Stella Cheng Library hosts job fair Thursday A job fair will be held at Richmond Public Library's Brighouse branch on Thursday, Sept. 9 from 1 to 5 p.m. The fair will feature employers from a wide range of sectors including food, retail, hospitality, health, technology and more. The fair will offer positions and employment opportunities at various levels to meet the needs of all job seekers. Employers will be on hand to share employment facts and information about individual job opportunities, provide information on career choices and the qualifications needed, and to guide interested candidates in the application process. Teen takes volunteering up and away by Sandra Gin Contributor S tella Cheng is not your average teenager. A Grade 12 student at Prince of Wales Secondary in Vancouver and a commerce undergraduate hopeful, Stella has found a nice niche for herself that truly makes a difference in the lives of others: volunteering. Having lived in Richmond for the past several years, Stella knew the city offered ample opportunities for young people to volunteer. A simple Google search led her to Volunteer Richmond Information Services (volunteerrichmond.ca), where she found abundant resources at her fingertips. That was three years ago. Since then, Stella has blossomed from an enthusiastic homework buddy at the Richmond Youth Services Agency to become the youth co-ordinator of the online magazine Clix (clixmag.ca). This demanding volunteer position includes leading a team of young-adult writers from Richmond to produce a locally-relevant online magazine each month. Stella also finds time to volunteer as a volunteer match advisor at Volunteer Richmond. Interested volunteers can set up an appointment with Stella or another advisor to discuss potential organizations or events that require volunteers. Stella interviews the client to help assess interests and skills, and then attempts to find a match with the most suitable volunteer prospect. See Page 15 It's Your Party way more, for way less.

Volunteer recognized with award From Page 14 Clients range from teenagers to seniors, and the experience has given Stella a fascinating scope into the lives of others. All of Stella's philanthropic activities contributed to her recent recognition as a Shooting Star award-recipient at last December's Volunteers are Stars gala event. When asked what the award means to her, the modest young woman replied, "I was actually very surprised. I started volunteering just to explore my options and see what it's like. I never knew it would lead me to so many opportunities to help and meet others. Being awarded for this was an amazing honour." Stella plans to continue donating her time and efforts to Volunteer Richmond, Richmond Youth Services Agency and other organizations that are bound to impact her university life. In fact, she has already been involved with University of B.C.'s Commerce Undergraduate Society. Earlier this year, she was chosen as one of two high school students to co-chair the inaugural miniEnterprize Entrepreneurship Conference at UBC for prospective business students. How does she manage to fit so many activities into her teenage life? "I try to remember that there is actually a lot of time in a single day," she says. "It just depends on how you use it."

Unfortunately, the dozen workers sitting in the conference room at the B.C. Federation of Labour in early August were not talking about working conditions in the last century or in a far away land. They were talking about working conditions this summer in B.C. The story these tree planters told shocked the people of British Columbia. They even shocked the provincial Labour Minister. Within a week it was clear that not only did these workers find themselves working for a terrible employer, they had also been let down by government agencies responsible for ensuring their safety. This was a company with a chronic record of bad performance and unsafe conditions, yet WorkSafe BC, the health authorities, BC Timber Sales, Employment Standards and the Ministry of Forests all failed to enforce regulations effectively. The failure however doesn't just belong to the Liberal government, which has spent a decade cutting back on enforcement, encouraging unrealistic low-ball bidding and wateringdown legislation that protects workers. This failure belongs to all British Columbians. It is, after all, our province. These were people working in our forests and working for our government. Most of the workers were recent immigrants from Africa, Well paid workers spend their paycheques in their communities and keep local businesses alive. one as young as 16 years old. After these workers' stories became public, it wasn't just other workers who contacted us, it was also other employers in the tree planting sector. They complimented the federation because the failure of enforcement by government agencies is not only Labour & United Way Making a difference Labour and United Way work in partnership to strengthen our community for all workers and their families.

Richmond Firefighters Association Local 1286, members of the International Association of Firefighters, recognize Labour Day and pay tribute to the heroes who fought for the unions supporting a safe, fair, equitable workplace for workers and their families in Canada and around the world. 3477-0710 bad for workers, it is also bad for the decent employers who play by the rules and want to do things right. This Labour Day, it's time for British Columbians to look ourselves in the mirror. Do we really want a province where this kind of exploitation happens? Are we happy to have gone from the highest minimum wage in Canada to the lowest? Do we support the dismantling of government and the gutting of oversight and enforcement capacities of government agencies? The answer--after even a brief look in the mirror--is no. We do not support this race to the bottom that the Liberal government has set us on with deregulation, self-regulation and the watering down of standards and enforcement. Yet, this is happening and the results are both shocking and shameful. On Labour Day, the trade union movement salutes the hundreds of thousands of British Columbians who toil to make the province work whether they are in a union or not. We understand that good jobs support strong families and strong communities. Main Street merchants understand this too. Well paid workers spend their paycheques in their communities and keep local businesses alive. They also pay the bulk of the taxes that pay for critical public services such as health care and education. We understand that when unions are under attack, just as they are now, salaries are pushed down, jobs disappear and working conditions deteriorate. The tree planters we helped this summer understand this all too well. For them, and for all the workers in the province, we pledge to continue to build a labour movement and a province that fights for everyone so they may go to work and live in a province where decent wages, proper benefits and safe workplaces are the standard for all.

For example, the baby boom generation--comprising approximately one-third of B.C.'s population-- has begun to retire from the workforce, or move from full-time to part-time work, and will continue to do so over the next two decades. This will bring a new set of challenges when recruiting and retaining the next generation of workers.

The holiday is commonly referred to as the Jewish New Year. However, unlike the New Year celebrations in January, the Jewish New Year is one of the holiest of the Hebrew calendar, and not celebrated with the drinking and partying of Jan. 1. Much of Rosh Hashanah is spent in synagogue, where special texts called the machzor are read. There are several customs for this holiday. The I first is the blowing of the shofar, or the ram's horn, in synagogue. Many believe this practice is a call to repentance. Many people also practice a "casting off" of sins. Bread crumbs are carried in the pockets, and Jews flock to the water to throw the crumbs into the tides. A tradition of eating apples or bread dipped in honey is also customary. This symbolizes a desire for a sweet new year. Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Sept. 8. www.ChabadRichmond.com/HHschedule To all my clients and friends.

In Hebrew, Rosh Hashanah means, literally, "head of the year" or "first of the year." Rosh Hashanah is commonly known as the Jewish New Year. This name is somewhat deceptive, because there is little similarity between Rosh Hashanah, one of the holiest days of the year, and the midnight drinking bash celebrated on Jan. 1. Quick facts There is, however, one important similarity between the Jewish New Year and the Canadian one: Many Canadians use the New Year as a time to plan a better life, making "resolutions." Likewise, the Jewish New Year is a time to begin introspection, looking back at the mistakes of the past year and planning the changes to make in the new year. The shofar is a ram's horn which is blown somewhat like a trumpet. One of the most important observances of this holiday is hearing the sounding of the shofar in the synagogue. A total of 100 notes are sounded each day. No work is permitted on Rosh Hashanah. Much of the day is spent in synagogue, where the regular daily liturgy is somewhat expanded. Another popular observance during this holiday is eating apples dipped in honey, a symbol of our wish for a sweet new year. Another popular practice of the holiday is Tashlikh ("casting off "). Jews walk to flowing water, such as a creek or river, on the afternoon of the first day and empty pockets into the river, symbolically casting off our sins. Small pieces of bread are commonly put in the pocket to cast off. The common greeting at this time is L'shanah tovah ("for a good year"). -- Judaism 101 (jewfaq.org) �The Significance: New Year �Observances: Sounding the shofar (ram's horn trumpet) There are four shofar notes: tekiah, a three-second sustained note; shevarim, three one-second notes rising in tone; teruah, a series of short, staccato notes extending over a period of about 3 seconds; and tekiah gedolah (literally, "big tekiah"), the final blast in a set, which lasts longer. �Length: 2 Days (Some: 1 Day) �Customs: Dipping apples in honey; Casting off "sins" into a river �Greeting: L'shanah tovah!

That command extends to the ball diamond, where the talented Richmond softball player continues to put up some impressive figures of her own. Just a couple of weeks ago, she gave up only two hits to help the White Rock Renegades win the Canadian Senior A women's championship in Kitchener, Ont. Her 1.66 earned-run average and equally stellar play at the plate (.800 batting average in the final three games) and in the field earned her tournament MVP honours. Hopwood, however, is self-effacing when it comes to her personal success. "Honestly, I struggled a little bit in the roundrobin games with my hitting, but I kept working on it and took a lot of extra swings when I could and got some great advice from my coaches and teammates," she said. "I guess it all just clicked at the right time." "As for pitching," she continued, "that was way beyond my expectations since I didn't pitch all summer. I honestly think my catchers (Courtney Gill and Leah Riske) made me look good. They called great games and kept my head in the game." Ironically, Hopwood's pitching career seemed to be winding down prior to the national championship. Save for three innings, she played shortstop for the entire 2010 season Junior hockey season faces off Sept. 9 The Richmond Sockeyes begin their 201011 Pacific International Junior Hockey League season 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 9 versus Port Moody Black Panthers at Minoru Arena.

And now as she settles in for her senior year at the school, it's likely she'll continue to play mostly in the infield when the 2011 schedule commences next February. Hopwood's numbers are also reflective of a player who comes through in the proverbial clutch. But that suggestion causes her to laugh because, she says, "if you ask my teammates, I'm a head case." "I get pretty nervous before every game, and start analyzing everything," she said. "If it weren't for them calming me down, it would probably be a different story. But as nervous and anxious as I get before I play, I love to be in pressure situations." A graduate of Hugh McRoberts Secondary, Hopwood also attributes her success to the ongoing influence and support of her parents. Her dad, Jack, has been her personal coach since she was a little kid. "He's always pushing me to do extra and to work for what I want," Melissa Tait photo After previously only pitching a few innings all season, Richmond's Sara Hopwood threw a gem in the final of the Canadian Senior A women's softball championship to help lift the White Rock Renegades to the national title. But she expects to be back at shortstop for her final season of college ball at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne. she said. "But, also, I have been lucky enough to have a lot of great coaches along the way and a lot of really great teammates." Transferring from Eastern Arizona College, Hopwood had a statistically banner 2010 season at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne. While helping the Mastodons (ranked second to last in the preseason) to a schoolrecord 29 wins and the Summit League championship, Hopwood sported a .323 batting average (third on the team) and from a team-high 155 plate appearances scored 35 runs--including a team-best three triples and six homers. The women's softball team at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne will sport a different look this season, as coach Amy Tudor has recruited several new players. Still, Hopwood and her teammates expect to win the conference title. "I'm a senior and it's my last year," she said. "It makes me sad to think about, and I know my last game here is going to be pretty emotional. But I'll always love softball and I know I'll keep playing after this year, and maybe even coach."
