White Rock mayor: ‘Last council… bit off more than they could chew’

‘Huge’ jump in city’s consultant costs Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

White Rock spent 72 per cent more on consultants last year than in 2010. The figures – $1,637,492 versus $951,331 – were shared in a fourth-quarter report to the city’s finance and audit committee Monday evening, and drew little comment from council members.

“We did employ a whack of consultants last year, but that’s reflective of the amount of work that was done,” Mayor Wayne Baldwin explained. Baldwin – who made the previous council’s record of consultant spending a campaign issue last fall – told Peace Arch News Tuesday that the current council won’t follow in its predecessors’ footsteps.

Describing the 72 per cent jump as “huge”, Baldwin said many of the previous year’s projects remain unfinished. “That was what the last council did, we’re not going to do that,” he said. “They bit off way more than they could chew.” In her report, financial services director Sandra Kurylo attributes the sizable jump to a high level of grant and contribution

funding from other levels of government, which prompted the undertaking of “a very large capital program in 2011 which had an impact on the level of consultants engaged, in particular in the engineering area.” “In order to qualify for grant funding, the city was required to share in the costs of several projects,” Kurylo writes.  see page A4

BC Liberals introduces law to suspend all job action as teachers hold strike vote

‘This won’t make things better in the classroom’ Tom Fletcher, Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Responding to legislation tabled this week, teachers across the province are deciding whether to escalate job action. Just as the Labour Relations Board gave B.C. teachers a green light to strike for up to three days next week, Education Minister George Abbott introduced a new law Tuesday that would suspend all strike action and could impose millions of dollars in fines per day if a strike persists. While the legislature debated the “Education Improvement Act,” teachers across the province took a strike vote this week, with results expected to be announced Thursday (after Peace Arch News’ press deadline; for the latest, visit www.peacearchnews.com). The LRB ruled Tuesday that teachers can legally strike for up to three consecutive days in one week after two days’ notice, and a further one day in each subsequent week with the same notice. That could continue until the new bill passes the legislature.

Surrey Teachers’ Association (STA) president Denise Moffatt said that while going on strike is never a preference, teachers are angered by what she called government interference. “Teachers see this legislation as just so disrespectful. They see through the rhetoric. They see clearly that this won’t make things better in classrooms.” More than 2,000 teachers showed up to a rally in Cloverdale Monday afternoon to protest an imposed contract. Abbott said the legislation imposes a sixmonth “cooling-off period” and sets up appointment of a mediator to look at nonmonetary issues only, meaning the government’s net-zero mandate stands. A separate penalty provision would be enacted if necessary, Abbott said, imposing a fine of $1.3 million a day on the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) and up to $475 a day on individual teachers who strike in defiance of the new legislation. The legislation extends the current teacher

contract terms until the end of The legislation also imposes a new August.

Gangland shooting in Surrey Police are investigating what they believe is a gangland shooting in North Surrey this week. On Tuesday, just after 10 p.m., the Surrey RCMP responded to a call of shots fired in the 8800block of 131 Street, just on the border of Newton and Whalley.

Mounties found an injured and responsive 28-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to the back. He was taken to hospital where he was listed in serious but stable condition. It was a targeted attack that has the earmarks of a gang shooting.

Police know the identity of the victim, but did not release that information at press time. “Our intelligence would indicate he does have affiliation to a particular group, but we’re not in a position to comment,” said RCMP Sgt. Peter Thiessen.

Engineering advice cost $1 million  from page A1 Projects that qualified for grants and other contributions included the Centre for Active Living/ Peace Arch Curling Club and the White Rock Museum & Archives renovation. Of the total spent on consultants in 2011, nearly a third – $547,784 – was paid out from October to December; the majority of that, $378,836, was for engineering services. Engineering was also the area that amassed the high-

In a brief discussion of the report Monday, the biggest concern was expressed by Baldwin, who questioned why $3,816 was spent to have walking surfaces on Johnston Road from North Bluff to Thrift Avenue assessed. Told it was done at the direction of the previous city manager to assess the surfaces’ safety for pedestrians, Baldwin said the issue was not one that warranted

Artist lobbies for teacher Alex Browne Staff Reporter

A South Surrey poet and novelist is embarked on a campaign to win special recognition for a pioneer Surrey educator – but time is short for others to register their support. Heidi Greco would like one of Surrey’s three scheduled new elementary schools to be named for Mary Coggin, former supervisor of libraries for the school district. Greco’s reasons for nominating Coggin – her one-time boss – are simple; Greco believes the idea of libraries as a crucial component of Surrey schools originated with Coggin, now in her 80s. “Mary began teaching in Surrey schools when she was still in her teens,” Greco said. “I think she was 18 when she started.” Greco said Coggin, who was a staff member of Semiahmoo High School for most of the 1950s, made her mark early by pushing for the establishment of school libraries, which eventually became district-wide. “The first library in a Surrey school was a very small collection of books – so small that it rode from school to school in Mary Coggin’s suitcase,” Greco said. She visited classrooms, reading stories to eager young children.” Under Coggin’s guidance, Greco said, Surrey’s school-library program flourished, receiving inter-

Radio jammer, handgun seized A 30-year-old Surrey man is due in Kamloops court next month after the seizure of a radio jammer and a Beretta semi-automatic pistol near McLure, B.C. According to police, an officer with the Southeast District Traffic Unit seized the items, along with a small quantity of marijuana, during a traffic stop on Highway 5 Jan. 23. A radio-jamming device – which sends random signals with sufficient power to disrupt GPS trackers and/or cellphones, often interfering with emergency services frequencies – was located in the vehicle’s centre console; the handgun was found behind a panel near the gas pedal.

However, in a call for submissions on the district website (www.sd36.bc.ca)) to name three

planned elementary schools – in Grandview Heights, East Clayton and South Newton – the Surrey Board of Education notes “special consideration is given to names that have significant meaning to students and members of the community.” Greco is encouraging others to echo her submission. District communications manager Doug Strachan confirmed this week that though there has been resistance to naming schools after individuals in recent years, “the policy doesn’t preclude it.” “By all means, send it in. It’s possible the board might go for something naming an individual, although that’s not been the trend. The board has given consideration to it in the past.” Greco, who was hired by Coggin as teacher-librarian at Earl Marriott Secondary in 1982, said Coggin’s heyday as supervisior of libraries was from the late 1970s to the late 1980s. “It’s likely she taught in Surrey longer than any teacher has, or for that matter, ever will,” she said. Those who wish to support Greco’s suggestion by submitting Coggin’s name – or another name – can do so by emailing schoolnames@sd36.bc.ca by deadline Friday. A school number – 202 for Grandview Heights, 201 for East Clayton and 211 for South Newton – must be included.

A lesson for all from tragedy

I

f ever in doubt that drinking and driving can change lives forever, sit in on a court case dealing with a choice that led to one person being responsible for the death of another – the death of a friend. It happens all too often, and in every community. The death is never the anticipated ending of whatever night on the town or social event preceded the tragedy. But it is always a risk when the choice is made to drink and drive. And while statistics show fewer people are making that choice, the number of related deaths won’t be a reason to celebrate until it hits zero. Three years ago, Sean Fleming made the choice to drive after drinking, took that risk – and he’ll pay dearly for it for the rest of his life. In court Tuesday, Fleming was sentenced to 18 months in jail for impaired driving causing death in connection with the Feb. 14, 2009 crash that killed his friend, Tony Blackburn. Fleming’s pain at knowing he caused his friend’s death was profoundly evident. He was shaking, wiping tears from his cheeks and couldn’t face the parents and siblings of his friend, all of whom sat in a row behind him for the duration of the afternoon hearing. Those in attendance heard about the deep depression Fleming fell into and has remained in since the tragedy, burdened inconsolably with the reality of what he had done. But Fleming wasn’t the only one in pain Tuesday. It was an almost tangible presence that hung over the proceedings, as Fleming’s parents received confirmation their son was going to jail, and as Blackburn’s family and a close friend shared the impact the loss of their son and brother’s life has had. After sentencing, Fleming delivered an emotional and unexpected apology to the Blackburns, one that clearly brought both sides some relief. Blackburn’s family said after court that it brought them a level of peace they had been missing in the years since the crash. Unfortunately, it won’t bring Tony Blackburn back, and it won’t change for Fleming the fact that he killed somebody, unintentional though it was. As Judge Robin Baird told Fleming, it is a very heavy burden to bear, and perhaps the worst punishment of all. To say that everyone involved has lived a nightmare is an understatement. We can only hope that others will learn from the needless tragedy, from the torment endured. Otherwise, Blackburn’s death and all the pain that continues to follow it, will be for nothing.

Do you ultimately support the BC Liberal 2012 budget?

yes 49% no 51% 116 responding argue with transparency, fairness and protecting children, after all? But both have disturbing implications beyond their avowed intent, which critics claim could be used to attack basic rights of privacy, association and freedom of speech. With all due respect to Hiebert, it would be naive to assume that a bill which could divert the resources of labour unions and spell out their political strategies to potential opponents – including the federal government – is motivated solely by an apolitical desire for transparency. It’s significant that only two days after Toews’ comments – after a public outcry – the Conservatives were forced to back down on the wording of C-30. Even some Tory MPs were saying the bill, as written, is too intrusive into the privacy of ordinary Canadians who have come to rely on the Internet for banking, business, personal communication and entertainment – people who would never dream of preying on children. We should not forget that espousing Motherhood issues is no guarantee of virtue. Appeals to national pride, the need to provide economic stability and fight against crime, a return to family values, protecting children from predators, respect for seniors, the encouragement of marriage, even motherhood itself, were also the stock in trade of some propagandists of the 1930s. Reasoned debate is not shouting down opponents, or using the transparent ploys of demagogues.

Think of the poor criminals Editor: In all of this dialogue lately by government officials and private citizens regarding legalization of marijuana, I wonder if anyone has any given any thought to the victims who will be hurt if such a change in law ever happens. Does nobody care about the people who make a living from organized crime? How on earth will they survive if their income is taken away? We should all give some consideration to those who would be damaged by the thoughtless act of legalizing this innocuous product. John Wright, Surrey

to scoop for them! Next time you see a lonesome poop, pretend it was your mother’s dog’s doing and dispose of it for the betterment of the community. This leads to future dog services thanks to democracy. Thankfully, during the all-candidates meeting on Nov 2. – prior to us voting for them – six of the seven current council members put their hands up in favour of allowing dogs on the promenade. Since this park area is only eight blocks from every resident, we look forward to getting services put in place, even if for only 40 per cent of the time representing the 40 per cent of us with dogs. Let’s become a better community, where all residents can enjoy our tax-paid-for areas. M. Armstrong, White Rock

Q Enough about dogs already! Surely there are more pressing and interesting happenings in South Surrey/White Rock to write about. It’s time the 40 per cent of dog owners in White Rock – as claimed by some, but is a number I suspect is inflated – to realize that the rest of the populace, that is the majority, don’t really care that much about your woes of not being able to congest the beautiful White Rock pier and promenade with your beloved pets, or your need for a dog park. Maybe it’s time these dog owners took it upon themselves to fund a dog park, if it so important to them, rather than expect the taxpayers to do so. Don Campbell, Surrey

Test drivers based on skill Editor: I imagine that most seniors have read about the new laws for drivers over 80 years old. This is a test conducted on a computer and, like many elderly people, I am not up to speed with a lot of today’s technology. Now, as a senior, I do not disagree with testing after a certain age – but a test with a qualified driving instructor, not a machine. Please remember that as seniors you have a voice and on this issue. Let it be heard. Let the deputy superintendent of motor vehicles, Stephanie Melvin, know that you are not very happy with this decision. Ralph E. Johnson, White Rock

Two different 40% solutions Editor: Re: It’s time to put our foot down, Feb. 23. letters. To help letter-writer Gerry Busby understand why White Rock is not like Victoria, Comox, or other good dog areas, just look at our current services. Victoria has 12 dog parks whereas we have zero. We would be very happy to have our Marine Drive be like Dallas Road in Victoria, where dogs are allowed and it is monitored and doggy-doo bags are provided. Peer pressure works wonders on keeping areas clean. With over 5,000 dogs estimated to be in White Rock with no services, no wonder you may find a few poops. Most of the people that I see not picking up after their dogs are seniors, so I help them and scoop for them. Since White Rock has 28 per cent senior population compared to 14 per cent provincially, it makes sense since many I know are not physically able after hip/knee replacements, vertigo, or arthritis. If you see a senior struggling with a door, do you offer to hold it for them? Then why not offer

Carla Henderson accepted Paul Thomson’s Valentines’s Day proposal.

A story from the heart Editor: Re: ‘We don’t need luck,’ Feb.14. I am writing on behalf of Paul Thomson and Carla Henderson. They would like to express their gratitude and appreciation to Evan Seal for writing such a heartfelt and touching story about them on Feb. 14. The article is a wonderful keepsake of their very special day. On the evening of Feb. 14, Paul asked Carla to marry him at the Semiahmoo House Society’s Acquired Brain Injury Program in Newton. Paul and Carla became engaged in front of family, friends and their support network. Carla happily accepted Paul’s proposal, and there was not a dry eye in the room as everyone watched Paul slip the ring on Carla’s finger. José Latchinian, of José & Co. Custom Jewellers, and Debora Dent, of Royal Pro Real Estate Network, were also present, as they delivered two chocolate hearts and a ring

that was custom-made for Carla by José. The ring fit Carla perfectly and looks absolutely beautiful. The certificate of appraisal for the ring states it is appraised at $1,600. Paul said “José is an angel,” and he gave José $310 and a bottle of wine in appreciation of his generous donation. The money was raised by friends and Paul’s support network. Paul and Carla have expressed how grateful they both are for the support and generosity that everyone has shown them. The generosity continued after the article appeared in the paper on Valentine’s Day. On Feb. 15, a White Rock resident donated a beautiful wedding dress to Carla after reading their story in the Peace Arch News. It will fit her perfectly. We have received numerous messages that this was such a wonderful story to read. Sylvia Hoeree, Semiahmoo House Society

Lest we forget Wi-Fi’s history Editor: Re: Measuring up the opposition, Feb. 9 letters. It seems letter-writer Andrew Wallwork has no problem joining the majority of electrical engineers in downplaying the dangers of BC Hydro’s ‘smart’ meters. Engineers follow physicists in simplifying nature. They are all quite happy if they can deal with averages of complex systems. So it is indeed true that all this Wi-Fi technology surrounding us generates small amounts of power, on average. They fail to disclose – or remember – a fundamental law of electromagnetism, discovered by both Michael Faraday and Joseph Henry almost 180 years ago that was key in humanity’s use of electricity. This law indicates that induced electrical voltages increase directly with the rate of fluctuations of the source currents. This means that very short spikes of powerful electrical current will be induced everywhere by Wi-Fi, including in biological tissue like the brain. We have no idea how dangerous this effect might be, but governments would be wise to be cautious as Wi-Fi frequencies continue to increase and as Wi-Fi becomes ever more pervasive. This new threat has been added to the numerous sources of cancer added to our environment – particularly by big business – in the last 50 years, all of which were initially denied by those with a large financial interest. BC Hydro has been pressured by the BC Liberals to push these new meters rapidly on the whole province so they can increase rates. Herb Spencer, Surrey

Keeping faith on kindness Editor: A thank you message for Kirsten and a driver of the 351 bus. On Feb. 17, around 7:45 a.m., I tripped and fell on my face on the cement sidewalk at Thrift Avenue and Martin Street. I was unhurt physically but blood was streaming down my face and I was a mess! The driver, due at White Rock Centre at 7:55, kindly stopped his bus to check on me, and a young woman named Kirsten swooped in with a cellphone to provide care for me, even though she was just off the night shift – two busy people who never hesitated to assist an elderly woman who had miscalculated a step on her way to an eye appointment. I ended up in Peace Arch Hospital ER which kindly and efficiently confirmed no concussion and no bones broken. I was lucky in that, but even luckier to meet two busy people who gave a stranger their time and comfort. My faith in the kindness of strangers has always been strong but now is re-enforced.

System ‘affects show of remorse’  from page A1 Diane Blackburn told the court the news that her son had been killed “felt like my baby was being ripped out of my belly.” As an obviously distraught Fleming listened, unable to make eye contact, she accused him of “hiding behind his dad’s will and his lawyer’s advice”, and said that prevented all those involved from starting the process of healing. “We were ready to forgive you right on the spot, but right away your father coldly… told us we couldn’t talk to you,” she said. “Followed by three years of silence, no answers, just added pain.” Fleming’s lawyer, Howard Smith, countered the Blackburns’ accusations, describing his client as profoundly impacted by the incident, with “the deepest regret” for what happened. “Sean has put himself on house arrest for the past three years,” Smith said. “He went from a very cheerful, happy fellow… into a fit of depression. (His parents) have been at their wits’ end to bring their only son out of this depression. And the depression is not related to consequence.” Smith said Fleming accepted the blame for Blackburn’s death from the get-go, admitting to the facts “over and over.” He submitted letters Fleming had written – including one dated Feb. 22, 2009 and addressed to Blackburn himself – as further evidence of his remorse. Smith blamed himself and the legal process as a whole for giving the Blackburns the impression Fleming wasn’t remorseful, and for keeping them in the dark about many of the details leading up to their son’s death. “It’s not easy understanding why a lawyer would tell his client don’t talk about the facts,” he said. Smith noted that Fleming told a paramedic at the crash scene that he doesn’t deserve to live anymore. The first wit-

ness to arrive recounted watching Fleming pull Blackburn out of the car and administer “external cardiac massage,” Smith said. “I think sometimes perceptions are affected by grief.” Smith disputed the blood-alcohol level evidence, noting that when the crash occurred, it had been “hours” since Fleming had had a drink. He also told Baird that both men had been drinking heavily, and that, had Blackburn been at the wheel on the way home, the incident could have ended in Fleming’s death instead. “In many ways, Sean wishes that was so,” he said. Outside court, Blackburn’s family took issue with Smith’s assertion that their son had also been drinking. He was a designated driver that night, they said. Smith told Peace Arch News there “is a lot of speculation” about what happened. Barclay later pointed out to the court that there was no evidence to suggest Blackburn had also been impaired. In delivering Fleming’s sentence, Baird acknowledged any penalty “will seem a trifle” to Blackburn’s family. At the same time, he asked the family to consider the impact that responsibility for Tony Blackburn’s death has had on Fleming. “I know from what I’ve heard today you may be skeptical about that,” he said, noting it is “inconceivable” to think that someone

who killed one of his best friends would not be mortified. “I want you to think about the fact sometimes people (aren’t as forthcoming) based on legal advice and legal jeopardy.” At the precinct, Fleming “made a clean confession,” Baird noted. Addressing Fleming, who nodded agreement with each point, Baird said what the young man did in drinking and driving “was extremely reckless, blame-worthy and fit for condemnation. And you are going to be condemned today. You’re going to pay a big price for what you’ve done.” Baird suggested to Fleming that his friend “may very well be annoyed with you for the fact that you haven’t made it good with his mom and dad.” In addition to 18 months incarceration at Nanaimo Regional Correctional Centre, Baird handed Fleming several conditions for his probation – including a two-year driving prohibition. Blackburn’s family said outside court Fleming’s emotional apology brought them peace. “Definitely,” Blackburn’s brother, Emmanuel, said. “The apology at the end, he’s probably going to feel so much better after that. “Just glad it’s over.” Diane Blackburn noted no one had ever wanted Fleming to go to jail, but that aspect was out of their control. “None of us wanted blood, or revenge,” she said.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Dragons’ rejection spurs successful company overhaul

Company a ‘silver lining’ for entrepreneur Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

Sitting on her father’s lap during his company’s board meetings, eight-year-old Christina Marcano knew she wanted to follow in his footsteps. From that age on, she knew her future lay in the business world. “My dad was an entrepreneur, so he instilled an interest in business in me that had a pretty lasting impression,” said Marcano, a former Semiahmoo Peninsula resident. “He’s really been a mentor in my life.” A little more than 20 years later, Marcano successfully achieved her goal of breaking into the business world as the owner of Silver Icing clothing, a lifestyle apparel brand, operating an online store and wholesale business. The creation of the company, which specializes in “luxury, eco-friendly dressy-casual clothing” and includes a high-end performance line, has been a positive ending to a rocky journey for the mother of one. In 2004, Marcano – now 31 – combined her love of business and fashion to create Skylar Clothing with her sister-in-law. The company broke into the market at a time when demand for retail was high and the company quickly grew, obtaining a large warehouse and three stores, including one in Southpoint Mall. However, having such a large overhead proved to be the company’s downfall when the recession hit a few years later. “We didn’t respond quickly enough to the changes,” Marcano said. “We had sales but we didn’t have the means to manufacture the clothing, so we fell behind.” Looking for a way out of their financial woes, Marcano and her team applied to be on CBC’s entrepreneurial reality show, Dragons’ Den in November 2010, aiming to broker a deal of $200,000 for a 25 per cent share of the company. While Marcano was one of the lucky few to have her segment air, it was by no means a pleasant experience, she said. Marcano, then eight months pregnant, was verbally ripped to shreds by businessguru Kevin O’Leary, who referred to her as a “drug addict” for being addicted to a failing company even though “it is killing her,” and a “murderer” for pouring more than $700,000 of her family’s money into the business with no profits in five years. “Going into the show, I knew Kevin would be giving me a hard time, as I had watched other segments, but I didn’t realize how quickly he would get into it,” Marcano said about the heated episode. “The producers had to actually stop taping and tell him to let me pitch because he wouldn’t let me speak. “The one thing I was proud of was that even though I was eight months pregnant, I didn’t cry,” she said, laughing. After being turned away by all of the

Dragons, Marcano went home to rethink her direction. Weeks later, while at her cousin’s wedding in St. Paul, Alta., she said she found inspiration in the small community. “I hadn’t been in a small town in a long time, and I felt really connected with a portion of the Canadian market that I hadn’t seen in a while,” she said. “I woke up at 6 a.m. that night and the whole thing had come to me.” After crunching numbers, she found that in its current state, the only way Skylar would make a profit would be if the company raised prices 30 per cent, which Marcano was not willing to do.

In other words, outside bodies were attempting to dictate how and by whom we should be governed. We need clear and unequivocal wording that will eliminate the possibility of any such actions if CETA is to be acceptable but, given the secrecy surrounding negotiations, we have no guarantee that this requirement will be met. It appears, too, that, if implemented, CETA will restrict how our governments can control private water corporations (Europe is home to the world’s largest) and allow them access to our drinking water for their profit. Sanitation services could also be affected. Besides these environmental worries, there appear to be threats both to our jobs and to local decision-making powers.

If European corporations are given unrestricted access to government purchasing contracts, this will deny municipalities the freedom to obtain goods and services locally. If, as the European Union (EU) wants, all of our public services come under the agreement, then medicare will be subject to increased pressure for privatization and generic drug costs could rise. Given these possibilities, it is deplorable that CETA has not been opened to public scrutiny and discussion. Keeping them from the public view heightens skepticism and fosters unfortunate suspicions that there’s something to hide. Why are we not being told what’s involved?

Ironman Mattresses with Celiant速 and Cellitex速 have been proven in clinical test to reduce pain, increase oxygen levels, and help balance body temperature. Each of these results can have added benefits, including faster healing, increased performance, better quality sleep and improved overall wellness; all of which can help alleviate the symptoms of arthritis and peripheral vascular disease often associated with diabetes. The key to Celliant速 lies in its ability to absorb and store electromagnetic (energy) emissions from the human body and release them where they are reabsorbed into the skin and deep muscle tissue, they act as catalysts for natural, biological processes resulting in enhanced oxygen levels, and more balanced body temperature during sleep, rest or physical activity.

lifestyles Annual fashion show has committee working around the clock

Semiahmoo students test their marketing skills Alex Browne Staff Reporter

After 16 years, the Semiahmoo Secondary Grad Fashion Show has become more than a tradition – it’s an extravaganza that students, teachers and families look forward to all year long. With each successive year setting the bar higher in terms of theme and show business razzle-dazzle, each grad class is on its mettle to outdo the previous effort. The current show, Pop-arazzi – coming up Wednesday, March 7 at 7 p.m. – is no exception. “We’re trying to get everyone involved – it’s a community event at the school and we run it like a business,” said Sean Chu, who co-chairs this year’s event with Kevin Hsieh. Next week’s show draws a record high of 90 students to model clothing and accessories loaned by local businesses. “We’ve established a sort of reputation,” Chu said. “Since students enter the school in Grade 8 they’re looking forward to being in the show.” “There’s a lot of pressure on us,” Hsieh admitted, noting he’s thank-

Semiahmoo Secondary students discuss marketing plans for the Grad Fashion Show taking place March 7. ful there’s a large team of organizers and volunteers involved, under the the arms-length purview of sponsor-teacher Judia Pelech. Committee members agree they’re enjoying the process of event management so much they’d like to be involved in similar work after graduation. “We’ve learned all about negotiation and contracts,” said Hsieh.

Chu explained the title of the show and the current marketing concept is a play on the word paparazzi and the concept of pop culture, as it has evolved over the past five or six decades. “We wanted something different – flamboyant colours and pop colours from artists like Andy Warhol and a lot of the stars who were doing music from then to

now,” Chu said. Don’t be surprised if this year’s theme resonates through large poster cutouts of performers all the way from Marilyn Monroe to Lady Gaga, Chu said. And advertisingcommittee head Joanna Huang’s team has come up with a colourful poster that evokes the pop-art era. “We wanted to have pop icons in there that everyone in the audience

could relate to,” Hsieh said, noting live performance will be part of the show, with solo singers, duets and dancers from the graduating class. Co-ordinating the complex show will be two MCs – Pradeep Verkatesh and Mitchel Bringelend – both of whom were chosen from a list of students who had submitted resumés. Anca Dobre and Angel Deng have been in charge of the all-important aspect of securing sponsorships, which in addition to local retailers loaning casual, semi-formal and formal clothing, includes the Blanche McDonald Centre which once again is helping co-ordinating hair and make-up. “The Motif Art Group, which is one of the largest art fund companies in the world, is also helping sponsor us generally,” said Dobre. Securing sponsorships is no longer a breeze, she said, since there is now greater competition from grad fashion shows at the other south end schools. “But some retailers are really loyal to us,” she said. Tickets ($10) are available through the school office 604-536-2131.

BEST PRICE | BEST QUALITY | BEST SERVICE

Brace for $1.60 a litre this spring, analyst warns

Kitchen and Bathroom Cabinets & Countertops

Record gas prices forecast Jeff Nagel Black Press

A 15-cent jump in Metro Vancouver gasoline prices has motorists stinging from a sudden new bout of pain at the pumps. And with the end of winter in sight, it could get even worse. Average prices in Metro Vancouver hit $1.42 per litre Tuesday – within a cent of last year’s summer peak – before easing slightly. Gasoline had been relatively stable at around $1.27 per litre here from late November until Feb. 14. The only time prices have been significantly higher than now was in the summer of 2008, when Metro Vancouver pump prices briefly topped $1.50 a litre as crude oil prices spiked to $150 a barrel. Crude now is close to $110 a barrel, driven up in part by fears that Iran’s effort to build nuclear weapons could spark military conflict in the Middle East. But petroleum industry analysts say the Feb. 18 fire at BP’s Cherry Point refinery near Blaine, Washington is a big factor driving prices up locally. Although the stillidled refinery doesn’t supply the Lower Mainland – gas here comes through Kinder Morgan’s pipeline from Alberta or is refined by Chevron in Burnaby – the reduced supply south of the border has forced prices up there and is having a spillover effect on prices in B.C. If Lower Mainland prices didn’t rise in tandem, analysts say, gas here would flow south of the border, drawn by higher prices. Jason Toews, co-founder of pricetracking website gasbuddy.com, calls it a case of bad timing for the refinery fire, because more motorists always take to the road in spring and summer, and that will soon force prices higher still. “It’s terrible news for gas prices,” he said. “Summer driving season brings a lot more driving. Crude oil is already high. And then there’s the Iran factor if war was to break out.” Toews said Lower

Gas prices are expected to rise further this spring. Mainland drivers are unlikely to see significant price relief

until September and he predicts gasoline will set new record highs

here this spring. “I think we’re going to see a spike in May,” he said. “Vancouver will probably see average gas prices around $1.60, with some stations as high as $1.70.” As of Wednesday, Bellingham prices were US $4.05 per gallon, the equivalent of about $1.05 per litre. There’s no estimate of when the Cherry Point refinery will return to full production.

lifestyles Peninsula student honours late cousin

A cut above Sarah Massah

I

Staff Reporter

t’ll be easy getting ready in the morning for at least 30 Earl Marriot Secondary students who shaved their head or cut their hair for a fundraiser benefitting BC Children’s Hospital last month. The Feb. 18 event, part of the the Balding for Dollars campaign, was organized by Grade 12 student James Pennefather to raise awareness and funds for the hospital. Pennefather, 17, became involved with the campaign in honour of his late cousin, Sara Aney, who passed away in 1999 at the age of eight from the disease. When Sara was sick and lost her hair while undergoing chemotherapy, her father, Ken, shaved his head as a sign of solidarity, Pennefather said. “It cheered her up,” Pennefather said. “It was something so small that made such a difference.” Although Pennefather was just five years old when Sara passed away, her death had a lasting effect on him because of their close relationship. As he became older, he wanted

James Pennefather (far left), shows off his freshly cut hair, which he had chopped in honour of his cousin, Sara (left, with father, Ken), who died of cancer in 1999. On Feb. 18, Pennefather organized a Balding for Dollars fundraiser at Earl Marriott Secondary (top).

to find a way to honour his cousin’s memory. Pennefather first decided to shave his head to raise funds for BC Children’s Hospital when he was in Grade 7. With his parents support, he organized a similar event. Since that day, he had been growing his hair out – with occasional trims – in order to shave it again. “Why not, I mean it is literally money that grows back,” he said, about his slightly-longer-than-

shoulder-length hair, which he had tied back in a ponytail. Dozens of students crowded around the pair of stylists from Men Zone – who had donated their time and services the last time Pennefather had organized an event – laughing and taking pictures as their friends got shaved and styled. Helping Pennefather with the event was Sara’s older sister, Karen. Despite the beauty of her waistlength flowing chestnut hair, she said she had no qualms about

facing the scissors for a dramatic cut. “I have done it before, but this time, I’m not going to go as short,” she said. Her long locks will be made into a wig which will be donated to someone who has lost their hair due to illness and cannot afford to purchase one. Karen was 12 years old when her sister passed away from cancer, and said she remembers the outstanding care the doctors and staff at BC Children’s Hospital gave

to her sister and her family. “They were amazing, they went above and beyond,” she said. “It was obviously not a good time, but they made it a little better.” Now 26, she says she is proud of her cousin for the work he has done keeping Sara’s memory alive and supporting the hospital. “You don’t see a lot of teenagers in high school who do stuff like this,” she said. “We’re all so proud of him.” All of the proceeds went to BC Children’s Hospital’s Balding for Dollars campaign. According to the hospital’s website, Pennefather is one of the top five top fundraisers for the event, with a total of $1,395, so far.

First project green-lit by council

Triplexes approved Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

Moments after White Rock council approved a new law that allows construction of triplexes, members gave a go-ahead to the first such project in the seaside community. The triplex at 1120 Johnston Rd. was granted preliminary approval last week following a unanimous vote granting final approval to the new bylaw. Once a number of procedural hurdles are completed, final approval to the city’s first triplex is expected in time for spring construction. The newly-approved guidelines require triplex housing to provide at least two parking spots per suite, restricts their size and limits where they can be built.

The overall size of a triplex can’t be bigger than duplexes already permitted under city bylaws, and the triplexes must be built in areas where multiple-family dwellings already exist. It’s hoped the new category of housing will encourage construction of affordable housing in White Rock. The vote approving the concept came 10 months after an application to get a oneoff zoning amendment to build a triplex at 14968 Beachview Ave. was scuttled by a split council vote. A Jan. 4 meeting held at city hall to discuss details of the proposed city-wide policy drew a small turnout – with just two members of the public attending – and nobody addressed the issue at a Feb. 6 hearing. - with files from Tracy Holmes

news Fraser Health acts to combat spread of pertussis

Cough prompts vaccine push Jeff Nagel Black Press

A spreading outbreak of whooping cough has prompted Fraser Health to extend its vaccination campaign across the region. More than 150 people are believed to have contracted pertussis, a highly contagious bacterial infection that causes adults to cough for months but can be deadly to babies. Medical health officer Dr. Elizabeth Brodkin said efforts to combat the illness had focused on Chilliwack and Hope – where the outbreak began. She said the vaccine is now being made available to doctors and pharmacists across the region. “More and more we are seeing

cases outside of Fraser East,” she said. Whooping cough cases are appearing in Burnaby, New Westminster, Langley and Maple Ridge, Brodkin said. “We didn’t want to wait until we were seeing huge numbers of cases and a very aggressive spread,” she added. “We saw enough cases we became concerned and decided it was time to act.” Adults and youth who have not had the pertussis vaccine in the last five years, and who are in contact with young children, are urged to get vaccinated. The goal is to immunize adults – for whom pertussis is more of an irritant – so they don’t act as carriers infecting infants, who are most at risk and are hospitalized

in more than half of cases. Three children have already been hospitalized due to the outbreak, including one two-weekold baby that ended up in intensive care for five weeks. All three have recovered. “It’s a nasty infection and even deadly in young infants,” Brodkin said. The vaccine lasts only five years so many people who got it in the past are no longer protected. Early symptoms of pertussis are similar to a cold, often worsening to severe coughing that sounds like a whoop or crowing sound as the patient breathes in. Symptoms develop seven to 14 days after infection. For more information, see www. fraserhealth.ca/whoopingcough

Surrey Youth Theatre Company show hits stage this weekend

Princess an ‘old story that resonates’ Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Surrey Youth Theatre Company’s production of A Little Princess brings the children’s classic to life this weekend at Surrey Arts Centre; with performances at 7:30 p.m. Friday (March 2) and Saturday (March 3), with a 2:30 p.m. matinee Sunday (March 4). Directed by SYTCO founder Susan Pendleton, it’s a true period piece – Frances Hodgson Burnett wrote a first version of the story in 1887, but last revised it some 18 years later, at the dawn of the Edwardian era. It tells the story of an intelligent, polite and

creative young girl, Sara Crewe, daughter of a soldier, who grew up in India. Brought to London for a formal education after the death of her mother, Sara is placed at a girls’ boarding school run by the haughty, forbidding headmistress, Miss Minchin. Minchin resents Sara’s imaginative flights of fancy, but is prepared to tolerate her all the while Sara’s father supplies the necessary fees. But when Sara’s father is reported dead, Sara feels the force of Minchin’s wrath – being allowed to stay at school only as a servant. With strength of spirit, Sara manages to win

through in the end in a tale that is both touching and inspiring. It’s an old story, but one that still has resonance with kids today, according to SYTCO newcomer Julia Albert, who plays Sara. “I think it’s relevant to the present day,� said the Grade 6 Laronde Elementary student. “There are still teachers who can be very strict and adults that don’t care about your feelings.� Sara’s ability to survive through the use of her imagination is one of the character traits she most enjoys, Albert said. “I like how kind she is to the others,� Albert

said. “She’s so brave, and how she gets through tough times teaches them to be brave, too.� Albert, who also sings with the White Rock Children’s Choir, says she has discovered a real love for acting – even in emotional scenes in which Sara grieves for her father. “I like singing and performing generally,� she said. “But I really like songs where you have to get into character to perform them.� Nic Pusic, in Grade 6 at Jessie Lee Elementary, is also a newcomer to SYTCO. And he’s enjoying the challenge of playing Mr. Carrisford, a friend of Captain Crewe,  see page A32

Sold-out event benefits Africa

Men’s choir, Go-Gos in harmony Alex Browne

Arts Reporter

t was harmony for a worthy cause when the voices of the Orpheus Male Voice Choir got together with the Go-Go Grannies of Surrey to raise money for African orphans, Saturday at Northwood United Church in Fleetwood. The sold-out concert, To Africa With Love, was a fundraiser for Ubuntu Ogogo (“compassionate grandmothers�) group, which supports the Stephen Lewis Foundation efforts to help grandmothers in sub-Saharan Africa who are raising grandchildren orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Chorus member Rob Forbes predicted the concert, after expenses, would clear some $4,500 for the project. Although based in Vancouver, the Orpheus Choir has a strong White Rock and South Surrey contingent – 11 of the 50 members hail from the Peninsula. And Forbes said it was a pleasure to perform in a community that seems like the choir’s second home – particularly for such a cause. “The wife of one of our members – Barb Warren – is a key member of the Greater Vancouver Gogos,� Forbes said. “She recruited us for an event more than a year ago.� Now celebrating its 20th year, the choir – currently led by dynamic conductor

Led by artistic director Liana Savard, the Vancouver Orpheus Male Choir performs during Saturday’s To Africa With Love concert. Liana Savard, with piano accompaniment by Barry Yamanuochi – is noted for an eclectic repertoire that ranges from rousing male-voice classics to sacred and folk songs, Canadiana, pop ballads and even rock ‘n’ roll. Joined by versatile percussionist Bruce Henczel, the ensemble rocked the rafters with such African-themed pieces as the

ever-popular Wimoweh, Kwmbayah and the traditional Zulu and work song Siyahamba (We Are Marching), which featured Forbes as soloist. But the multi-national feel of the concert was apparent in everything from traditional Latin sacred music (Dona Nobis Pacem) to An Irish Blessing, the spiritual Steal Away and Oseh Shalom (A Prayer for Peace);

The Star Captains perform in White Rock March 3.

Arts Reporter

When it comes to musical concert showcases on the Semiahmoo Peninsula, local performers are often overshadowed by visiting acts. But you can’t get more local than the upcoming concert bringing together the Star Captains, Jason Mitchell and Their There, at Coast Capital Playhouse Saturday, March 3 (doors open 7 p.m.). Guitarist Jim Black’s compelling ’70s soul and funk-inspired Star Captains had an early baptism by fire in White Rock through extended residencies at Sideshows West Coast Grill. The musicians in the fresh-sounding sixpiece alternative rock group Their There met

and began performing together while still at at Earl Marriott Secondary, drawing Elgin Park trumpeter Rory Hislop. And singer-songwriter Jason Mitchell – though he now divides his time between Vancouver and Kelowna – grew up in White Rock. The mix promises to be a memorable evening, demonstrating, that local talents are more than strong enough to carry their own shows. “We’re offering a friendly challenge to support people who are trying to make a difference,” said Black. Tickets ($17) are available from the Coast Capital box office (604536-7535) or online at www.whiterockplayers. ca

Storm senior girls defeat Credo Christian in single-A championship game

Southridge girls capture Valley title Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Southridge School has a new banner to hang in the gym, after the Storm’s senior girls basketball squad rolled to a Fraser Valley single ‘A’ championship Saturday night at Langley’s Trinity Western University.

In the title game, Southridge defeated Credo Christian handily, 72-39. “It was great, the girls played very well,” said Southridge coach Paul Chiarenza. “It’s as cohesive as I’ve seen our girls all year, and our first half was as close to perfect as we could’ve got.

“Credo isn’t a bad team either, not by any means, but we just played great.” Southridge’s Ashley Andreou was named the game and tournament most valuable player after a 32-point, 17-rebound performance in the title game, and Katie Punia – the Storm’s Grade 9 point guard –

had 16 points and nine assists. Storm forward Lauren Bromage was named a Fraser Valley firstteam all-star, and was a monster under the hoop against Credo, finishing with 15 blocked shots. “That’s absolutely unheard of,” Chiarenza said. “We had some defensive breakdowns, but every

time we did, Lauren was there with the stop. It was like having an allworld goalie back there.” Laura VanTil led Credo with a dozen points. In semifinals Friday at Southridge, the Storm defeated Unity Christian 80-36, led by a 17-point effort from  see page A34

Skater sets new records

Triple gold for Meeks at Games Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

South Surrey skater Connor Meeks’ need for speed resulted in three gold medals at the B.C. Winter Games last weekend in Vernon, tops among south-end participants. The 15-year-old Meeks, a member of the Langley Blades Speed Skating Club, finished atop the podium in two individual events – 200- and 400-m – and also scooped a gold medal as part of a Zone 3 (Fraser Valley) relay team. And not only did he have three gold medals hanging from his neck by Games’ end Sunday, he also had his name etched in the Winter Games’ record books not once, Connor Meeks but twice; Meeks’ times in speedskater both the 200- and 400-m events set new marks. “It was pretty amazing, I had no idea I’d do as well as I did,” said the Earl Marriott Secondary student. “I knew I had a chance to win the 200, because I have a good start, but to win two, plus a relay, was pretty cool. It was a great experience.” Making Meeks’ medal haul all the more impressive is the fact he’s been speed-skating only a little more than a year, having traded in hockey skates for the long blades after concussions forced him from his original athletic pursuit. “It’s pretty amazing to think it was only a year ago,” he said. “When I started, I used to fall all the time

Meeks wasn’t the only south-end athlete to strike gold in Vernon.

With the victory – the second Fraser Valley title for the school’s senior girls’ team and first since 2007 – Southridge now advances to provincials, which are to be held at Prince George’s Cedars Christian School, March 7-10. Last year at provincials in Fernie, Southridge – who went into the tournament as the 16th and final seed – finished ninth. This year, they’ll enter as the sixth seed. Chiarenza is confident his team will be among the contenders for a provincial championship. “There’s a handful of teams that I think will be in the mix, and one of them will be able to get hot for four days and win some games. And if we play like we have been playing, there’s no reason that can’t be us,” he said.

Warriors in ‘must win’ mode Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The White Rock Christian Academy Warriors have two games left to win if they hope to qualify for senior boys AAA basketball provincials, with the first coming tonight (Thursday) against the Princess Margaret Lions. Both teams will be fighting to continue their season, as the winning team advances to Fraser Valley championship’s final-eight showdown this weekend at the Langley Events Centre, and the losing squad is eliminated. The top seven from the LEC will advance to provincials in two weeks. WRCA was knocked into mustwin mode after a 60-51 loss to Tamanawis Monday. It was the first loss of Fraser Valleys for White Rock, who defeated Maple Ridge Friday and Kwantlen Park

in the opener earlier last week. Last year, WRCA failed to qualify for provincials for the first time in more than a decade, and it was a Thursday elimination game against the Fleetwood Park Dragons that proved to be their undoing. Tonight’s game against Princess Margaret, as fate would have it, is to be played at Fleetwood Park. “Last night after the game, one of our seniors stood up and made sure everybody knew that this is where our season ended last year, and that it can’t happen again,” said WRCA coach Dale Shury, who has taken over headcoaching duties from the recently resigned John Dykstra. Monday’s loss to Tamanawis was tough, Shury said, because the Wildcats have now gotten the better of the Warriors in three of four

games this season, though the first three games were decided by a combined four points. The Warriors started slow Monday, at least offensively, and trailed Tamanawis 44-30 after three quarters, before putting up 21 points in the final frame. “I was hoping for a little more last night. We just weren’t hitting shots, and Tamanawis runs a very good (defence),” Shury said. “We played a decent game, just not good enough.” Shury said the upheaval surrounding the team – Dykstra resigned his coaching post Feb. 21 – may have been playing on the minds of his players, but insists it’s business as usual going forward. “They’re a pretty resilient group, and from this point on, I think they’re just focused on winning.”

sports Team set for three road games on weekend

Eagles topple Rivermen Less than a week after the Langley Rivermen ended the Surrey Eagles’ impressive point streak, the South Surrey junior hockey squad exacted a measure of revenge. Tuesday at the Langley Events Centre, the Eagles – who lost 4-1 to Langley last Wednesday – defeated the Rivermen, 6-4. But it took a mid-game comeback for the Eagles to pick up the two points. Langley led 3-1 after 20 minutes, but Surrey responded in the second with three consecutive goals – two from Sean McGovern and one from Robert Lindores. In the third period, Brandon Morley – who also scored Surrey’s lone first-period marker – and Brandon Tanev, who scored into an empty net, added goals for the Birds. Andrew Hunt was in net for the Eagles,

stopping 20 of 24 Rivermen shots. Until losing to Langley last week, the Eagles had picked up points in the standings – either by win, tie or overtime loss – in 16 straight contests. Tuesday’s effort was the first game in a busy week for the Coastal Conference-leading Eagles. They travelled to Cowichan Wednesday for an evening tilt against the Cowichan Valley Capitals (results were not available by press deadline), and Friday they head to Victoria for a date with the struggling Grizzlies – who have just two wins in the last 10 games. On Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, the Eagles face the second-place Powell River Kings, who are chasing the Eagles for first place in the conference. - Nick Greenizan

FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENTS 5

IN MEMORIAM On 1 March, 2011, Mrs. Dolores Fairfoull passed way in Peace Arch District Hospital, White Rock BC. Dolores was a well known health consultant who helped many people over the span of several decades. She was also an avid dog lover and, as part of her extensive knowledge of natural health and healing, would advise people on the care of their pets. One year before she passed away she became a Reiki Master, giving credence to the old adage that “You are never too old to learn� In addition, as a long standing member of the Baha’i community, she occasionally gave talks to the wider community on the connection between health, healing and spirituality. Dolores is survived by her husband Robert, her daughter Delores, two grandsons, Ryan and Evan and three grandchildren, Alanna, Abigail and Aaron. A Memorial will be held at Sunnyside Cemetery on 4 March at 2 P.M. Everyone is welcome for tea at the Fairfoull’s house afterwards.

Do you have Dry Eyes? 604-536-4999

102 - 1656 Martin Drive, White Rock, Semiahmoo Professional Building

www.whiterockoptometry.com

Multiple studies have shown that nearly half a million Canadians age 50 or older are affected by dry eye syndrome (DES) There are multiple risk factors for dry eye including age, female gender, systemic diseases, medications, contact lens wear and laser surgery. Certain environmental conditions can also exacerbate dry eye symptoms. Left untreated, one may suffer with chronically red, sore and watery

eyes, that are more vulnerable to infection. Luckily there are some effective treatment options available for chronic dry eye. Dr Sally Donaldson has a focus on looking after dry eyes. She will do a complete evaluation in the office to diagnose the cause and severity of your dry eye, and come up with a detailed plan for the treatment. New treatments with prescription eye drops can be very effective for more severe dry eye. Punctal occlusion (blocking of the tear drain), nutriceuticals, and tear supplementation, are also very helpful in the long-term management of this chronic condition. Dr. Melanie Sherk, Dr. Cindy Anderson, Dr. Tracy

Access to transportation key when choosing a new home

Transit ‘a really vital link’ in our lives How much is convenient transportation worth? It might be a cop-out to say “it depends,� but that’s how it is. Sometimes it can add to the cost of a home, but in other cases it can actually save you some cash. Take Forge Properties’ Keystone townhome development in South Surrey. Forge spokesman Cory Saran says lots of buyers are coming in from Vancouver and Richmond because it’s close enough to Highway 99 that residents can hop on the freeway and get going within minutes. And with homes starting at $445,000, he says commuters can save a bundle compared to living in a similar, 1,800 square-foot townhome downtown. “To buy a townhome with this squarefootage in Vancouver is a million-plus,� he

says. Saran says the proximity to the 99 is huge for Keystone buyers. From the development, you can get to Langley in 20 minutes and downtown Vancouver in about 30 if you’re lucky, he says. It’’s the same for developments near public transit. WestStone Properties’ 40-storey condo tower Ultra – part of the Urban Village project in Surrey’s City Centre – is a three-minute walk to the SkyTrain. Bob Dominick, vicepresident of sales and marketing at WestStone, says this proximity to transit has been a huge draw for SFU students in particular, but also commuters who get to work without a car. “Many of our residents look at it as access to entertainment,� Dominick says. “I think it’s a really vital link in our lives.�

Going for the gold

Celebrating the best of B.C. at the Georgies by Kerry Vital

In the grand tradition of awards season, the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of British Columbia joined in the fun with their annual Georgie Awards, held on Feb. 25 at the Vancouver Convention Centre. This year was the 20th anniversary of the awards, which recognize excellence in residential home construction, renovation, design, development, and sales and marketing. “From Whistler to the Lower Mainland to the Okanagan, the winners of this year’s Georgies are golden examples of what excellent residential construction is all about,� says CHBA BC President Doug Wittal. “The winners – and indeed all the finalists
