Commendations fail to assuage regrets that he couldn’t save woman from attacker with axe

Newton senior rejects ‘hero’ label Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Narinder Nayar tried to grab assailant.

Carrying an axe and knife out of view, the man walking into a Newton newspaper office last July looked like any other customer. Then, according to witnesses at the Sach Di Awaaz Newspaper office at 128 Street and 82 Avenue, the man saw 24-year-old Ravinder Kaur Bhangu and began to strike her with the axe. She tried to block the descending blade with her arms and started to scream. Standing about three metres away, 70-yearold Narinder Nayar moved to stop the attacker. “I heard someone is crying (and) I rushed to that,” the volunteer photographer said in

an interview Tuesday, adding he yelled at the man: “What are you doing?” Nayar tried to grab the assailant, but received a sharp blow to his left shoulder from the axe. Undeterred, the senior came again at the attacker, who chopped at him a second time in the back of his shoulder with the axe. Nayar remembers wondering why he was drenched with sweat, only learning later he was covered in his own blood. Weakened and in pain, he fell back and went to call for the owner of the newspaper. When he returned, the young woman whom he considered a daughter was motionless on the ground, her attacker subdued by police.

Nayar was taken away by ambulance and treated for his wounds. He learned later that Bhangu was dead. On the back wall of Nayar’s Newton basement suite, several plaques and commendations hang in honour of his actions that day. He would trade them all, he says, if he could just bring Bhangu back. “She was extremely good as a human being. She respected me just like her father,” he said. Nayar used to put in full days at the newspaper. On the day of the murder, he was sorting through photographs to choose which ones would run in the next edition.  see page 4

Hansen offers support

Kindred visitor Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Much has happened in recent weeks to lift the spirits of a White Rock man who was paralyzed last month in a freak hockey accident. Richard Morrison has been switched from a respirator to a “trach” tube, which has increased his ability to communicate by enabling him to mouth words. He’s also spent precious time with his children, and has stabilized enough to start receiving visits from close friends. And while he’s still got a long road ahead of him – one that includes learning how to adjust to life dependent on an electric wheelchair – a visit this week from Canada’s Man in Motion, Rick Hansen, was “for sure” a boost the 47-year-old needed. “Rick is just so inspirational. I think Richard really needed… a reminder that he’s not the only one going through this and that it will be OK,” his wife, Sheila, said the next day. “Just to hear from somebody else who’s been there. None of us can really understand what he’s going through.” Morrison, 47, broke his neck in

Monday’s visit with Hansen, who is paralyzed from the waist down, was arranged by Amy Baumann, the City of White Rock’s co-ordinator for the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay end-of-day celebrations (set for 5-8 p.m. Saturday, at the White Rock Community Centre). The visit to Morrison’s room in Vancouver General Hospital’s spi-

nal unit was also a treat for Morrison’s children. Johnny, 6, “knew all about him,” Sheila Morrison said of Hansen, who gave the youngster The Boy in Motion, the children’s book that tells Hansen’s story. She said her husband and Hansen chatted privately for a bit, and she could tell the conversation resonated.

much longer is an open question. There is no other similar carbon tax in other parts of Canada, and in most parts of the world. If nothing else, the actions of the protesters should spark discussion about coal and the role it plays in a modern society. It is unrealistic to shut down coal mines arbitrarily when there is plenty of demand for the product. Protesters here can have an impact on decisions of our governments, but that has little to do with how coal is used in other parts of the world. Perhaps the protesters and others need to engage with Asian governments and see how practical it would be for them to get electricity from other sources. Japan, for example, was getting a lot of electricity from nuclear power until last year’s tsunami. Coal remains an important generator of electricity in Japan. A thorough discussion about coal, its benefits and drawbacks, and the role it plays in the economy is needed. The protesters may have helped to begin that conversation. ••• Longtime South Surrey businessman Bob Hassell died last week at the age of 89.

news New coins to be wasted a while longer at parking machines near Peace Arch Hospital

White Rock puzzles over certain meters Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Patients and visitors heading to Peace Arch Hospital would be wise to check what coins are in their pockets if they plan to park at a roadside meter. City of White Rock officials confirmed Tuesday the machines are among others across the country that do not work with the new loonies and toonies that were rolled out by the Royal Canadian Mint last month. And unlike the solar-powered meters along Marine Drive, which are in the process of reprogramming that is expected to be complete this month, the 90 or so machines located along streets including Finlay, Russell and North Bluff present more of a puzzle.

“Those are apparently more challenging,” said city manager Dan Bottrill. “They’re still trying to figure out what they can do… how we’re going to deal with those meters.” Bottrill said the city has fielded the odd complaint about the issue. Meters supplier POM (Park-o-Meter) has committed to coming up with options by the end of next week. The new $1 and $2 coins went into circulation April 10. According to information released by the Royal Canadian Mint, the currency are made of “multi-ply plated steel technology”, have advanced security features and are more cost-effective to produce. The change is saving Ottawa a projected $16 million a year but expected to cost the vending industry $40 million to recalibrate.

“Obviously, there was a lot of people that got caught with having these coins enter the market without having the chance to be prepared,” Bottrill said. “You would think our Canadian Mint would work with vendors like this before they released the coins.” Parking meters are not the only equipment needing to be retooled. TransLink’s ticket vending machines also couldn’t read the new coins. The problem has been fixed at all Canada Line stations; upgrades of older machines on the Expo/Millenium Line are being done in phases over the next several weeks. In Surrey, about a third of the city’s 49 parking pay stations have been retrofitted, and the balance are scheduled for next week, said Jaime Boan, manager of transportation,

estimating Surrey’s cost at about $4,500. Bottrill did not have a cost estimate on addressing White Rock’s meters, as the solution for the older machines has yet to be identified. Once that is found, he expects the fix will proceed quite quickly. Until then, city staff are exploring what, if any, steps should be taken to advise citizens of the problem, including whether decals should be added to the roadside meters warning customers the coins will not work. The heads-up will be too late for at least one hospital visitor. In a letter to Peace Arch News, Langley resident Brian Ulle, noting he spent $7 for four hours’ parking, describes losing “another buck” to the meters as “a slap in the face.”

Whistle-blower policy

Officials differ on city-staff protection Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Horace Jalbert surveys the most-recent damage to his fence, estimating it will cost $1,000-$2,1000 to repair.

Vandalism takes toll Horace Jalbert is beginning to get a little fed up with people vandalizing his fence. Some time late Saturday, someone ripped down the wooden lattice work and kicked in the slats on the five-foot-tall fence that surrounds his immaculate South Surrey home at the corner of 24 Avenue and 144 Street. “They did a good number on it,” Jalbert told a Peace Arch News reporter, as he prepared to make repairs earlier this week. Jalbert thinks it was shortly before midnight when the vandalism occurred, because the dog that he and his wife own made a fuss around that time. When daylight came, he located the damage and reported the incident to police. It is the fourth time someone has damaged the Jalberts’ fence in about two years. The previous incident happened three weeks earlier. It was relatively minor damage, but the latest vandalism is far more extensive and will cost $1,000-$2,000 to repair, he estimates. That’s pretty much the family home insurance deductible, so there’s little point filing a claim, Jalbert says.

White Rock sets tax rates White Rock’s 2012 tax rates have been set. City politicians gave unanimous support to giving final reading to its annual rates bylaw Monday, during a special meeting of council. The thumbs-up confirms a jump of 2.5 per cent to this year’s average property tax and solid-waste levy – $65 for detached singlefamily home and $28 for condominiums. Revisions to the city’s draft financial plan that reduced the proposed 2012 property tax increase from 4.57 per cent to 2.5 per cent, were endorsed by the finance and audit committee in March. The city’s sewer connection and rental charges bylaw and drainage utility user fee bylaw were also passed Monday.

The trio received first, second and third reading at the May 7 council meeting (incorrect information appeared in the May 8 Peace Arch News).

No contact since Christmas White Rock RCMP are asking for the public’s help in locating a woman whose family last spoke with her at Christmas. Nora Dorothy Borland, 60, is described as a 200-pound, 5’6” Caucasian woman, with hazel eyes and shortcut brown hair with reddish highlights. She may be driving a black 2007 Saturn Aura or a white, 1998 Windsport motorhome. Police said in a news Nora Borland release Tuesday that Borland was last known to missing be living in White Rock, but may be travelling across the country. Anyone with information is asked to contact White Rock RCMP at 778-593-3600.

The City of White Rock needs a way to protect its employees who fear lodging a complaint or disclosing information in good faith could lead to retaliation or penalty. So says Coun. Helen Fathers. But her suggestion that council consider creating a “whistle-blower” policy didn’t get far when she brought it up at Monday’s governance and legislation committee meeting. “Is nobody interested in discussing it?” she asked, after an explanation of why she brought it forward was met with silence. Fathers had told the committee she believes it is “imperative” to have such a policy in place, and she hoped her peers support council referring it to staff. While the matter wasn’t supported for discussion, Coun. Larry Robinson noted it isn’t council’s role to bring such policies forward: “I honestly feel we’re crossing a line into HR (human resources) here.” If legislation is needed, it should be an initiative from within the administrative team, Robinson said, adding it would be “improper” for council to take the lead. Fathers responded that her intent “is to protect staff.” City manager Dan Bottrill told Peace Arch News Wednesday that policy introductions can come from staff or council. While a “whistle-blower” or serious-complaints policy is not currently in the works, Bottrill said the city does have a code of conduct that addresses some of the issues. “There is already kind of a process. A separate policy just provides some additional processes in terms of how that occurs,” he said. “Whether or not we need one is something I can take a look at.” A review of all city policies tis already underway, Bottrill added.

Tether motion delayed Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Despite Surrey council’s promise to introduce an emergency resolution last week banning dog chaining, it never materialized. On April 23, a group showed Surrey council graphic and troubling images of dogs found chained. Some of them ended up crippled and others had hanged to death on their tether. Coun. Barbara Steele said at the time that council would introduce an emergency motion at the Lower Mainland Local Government Association in Whistler last week. The LMLGA would have forwarded it to the Union of B.C. Municipalities, which would have pressed the province for legislation. The resolution never made it to the floor. Steele said Surrey staff weren’t able to draw up the resolution in time and she was concerned it wouldn’t make the threshold necessary for an emergency. Steele said the city will bring a resolution the UBCM in September. Mayor Dianne Watts said Surrey is working on its own bylaw to ban the practice. “Any time that you can put in provisions that will assist in the better care of animals, you want it in there as soon as possible,” Watts said.

Free education won’t come without cost

F

ree cradle-to-grave public education would be a great idea if we could afford it. Education is expensive and, in some cases, students should be expected to pay for it. Few would quibble about the benefits of free public K-to-12 education, and postsecondary school should be subsidized to guarantee a well-educated and skilled work force. But there may be times when free tuition doesn’t accomplish the goals set out by the citizens who have to pay for it and, after experimenting with the Education Guarantee, the B.C. government has figured this out. After four years of providing free tuition to graduated adults seeking to upgrade their high school education, the province is now whittling down the number of courses it will offer at no charge. More specifically, the province has determined that it will only pay for literacy, math and competency courses for students learning English as a second language and English 12, Biology 12, Math 11 and 12, Chemistry 11 and Physics 11. The idea is that these are the courses that are most sought after by students seeking to upgrade their education. Students who wish to take history, law or accounting, which could be seen more as electives than core academics, will now have to pay for them. The province has also moved to withhold partial funding unless courses are completed, and while we don’t know all the details – and there could be some costly fine print for school districts unless attention is paid to this issue – the principle is sound. Taxpayers should only pay for courses that people sign up for and complete. Adding English 11, Communications 11 and 12, Physics 12 and Chemistry 12 to the list of free core courses is also a good idea because they, too, are needed for university or college. But until educators are prepared to work for free, students will have to contribute in some way to their own education.

something similar around our walk-in closet to protect my wife’s wardrobe. I don’t know why this is an issue at all, really. I mean, the teen has her own walk-in closet, which is not exactly bereft of garments. Yet, ask her why she has yet again pillaged her mother’s clothing stock, and the response runs the gamut from “mine is in the wash; can’t find my own; this matches my shoes; or, hers fits better.” Like most things feminine, I try to stay out of it. Nothing good can come from an unsolicited male perspective on mother-daughter dynamics. I once suggested to my wife that a sure-fire solution to the issue would simply be for her to put on a few pounds, and move beyond the teen’s size range. That earned me one of those female looks that can microwave a man’s liver at 50 metres. I excused my poor sense of humour and beat a hasty retreat to the garage until the radiation dissipated. There are a couple of other options available, although I haven’t put them forward. When we see the teen coming, I distract her with an AE discount flyer, and the wife rescues an armload of her favourite fashions in a dash out the back door. Or, here’s an even simpler approach. Steal the kid’s clothes. ... wait a minute ... aren’t those her jeans you’re wearing? Andrew Holota is the editor of the Abbotsford News.

Tether ban not fair to dogs Editor: Re: Surrey to ban tethering of dogs, April 26. In regard to the tethering of dogs, a few points need to be considered. I agree dogs should not be tethered when their owners are not home to supervise, as tethers can break or become entangled with obstacles, causing potential harm to the dog. But this ban should not be applied when the dog is supervised. I have owned German shepherds for the past 30 years. My dog has a 30-foot chain with a pulley that runs on a 24-foot cable along the ground with shock-absorbing springs at either end. He can run 84 feet across the backyard by 60 feet to and from the back porch, which is sheltered from the weather. He also has access to his kennel – chainlink, six feet by 20 feet with concrete floor and roof – and attached six-by-six walk-in doghouse where he stays when we are not at home. The kennel is locked to prevent theft by criminal activists. The system works well. The dog refuses to relieve himself in the kennel, but when let out on the chain he can run free, do his business in the backyard, and get lots of exercise. Furthermore, the back portion of our property has abundant wildlife which we enjoy because the dog cannot get there to terrorize the rabbits, squirrels, raccoons and possums. To achieve the same control over our dog without the chain, we would need a maze of fences and gates. The problems that would be created by banning tethers would include more ugly fences, dogs running loose in traffic, dogs being confined in kennels or in the house or surrendered for relocation, and a lot more poop on the sidewalks. Banning tethers is not fair to the dogs or the owners. Paul Appenheimer, Surrey

Bigger issues than hemp shop Editor: Re: Proposed hemp shop gets cool reception, May 8; Civic foes fail to extinguish hemp shop, May 10. Marine Drive merchants and White Rock’s reputation are being dealt a serious injury by council’s decision to allow a man ordered to stand trial on a charge of marijuana trafficking to open up shop here. Not only will it make Marine Drive an unsavoury place to visit, even for locals, the hemp shop will undoubtedly create suspicions about the kind of people and activity attracted to White Rock and South Surrey. It reflects badly on all of us. The accused marijuana trafficker is reported to be an executive director of the so-called Langley Medical Marijuana Dispensary. Quite apart from any legitimate case for medical marijuana, such non-pharmaceutical dispensaries are opposed by, among

others, the Obama administration. The U.S. FDA has acted swiftly in the last two years to shut down what is understood to be an abuse of privilege under the guise of medical use in California, in particular, where such “dispensaries” are said to rival Starbucks in number – well beyond any real medical need. What now will be our reputation? Will a quick trip across the border come with suspicion and unprecedented questioning? Do those who use marijuana for other than medical necessity know they subsidize organized crime, gang violence and prostitution rings? On the larger question implicit in these matters and this decision, will ‘legalize, regulate and tax’ merely ‘legitimize, expand and subsidize’ a growing illegal market including international narcotics and gun crimes in which marijuana is reputedly the currency of choice. Large questions hang on council’s small decision, not least our reputation. Brian Marlatt, White Rock

Q I read with interest the recent ruckus over the business licence for Hempyz Gifts and Novelties. It is lunacy for council to try to stonewall this proprietor’s business application without better just cause. It seems this gentleman is willing to be a responsible small business on Marine Drive, accepting the high mortality rate that accompanies this. To deny him the class of licence he has applied for would surely lead to lengthy and costly litigation. I suspect the apparent character assassination that has been advanced to both mayor, council and now the public would not make great filler for a statement of defence in B.C. Supreme Court. My thoughts are that while Randy Caine may seem a lot like a “hippy,” if he is able to operate a lawful and viable business, let him do so. Our city seems to be on the list as a destination spot for lawful protests as of late, so why the objection here? Ron Eves, White Rock

‘Mickey mouse’ patching job Editor: A recent visitor commented on the sorry state of many roads in South Surrey; which brings us to 144 Street which was resurfaced last fall. Before he even left town, they began to tear up this beautiful and expensive newly paved road to install a pipeline. Part of the job is completed and the same ‘mickey mouse’ patching has been done that we find all over the area. The street is now worse than before our tax money was spent paving it. Surrey residents need to start asking if anyone does any planning in Surrey other than planning on how to squeeze us for tax money for someone to waste. Tom Towler, Surrey

Youth of Elgin Park Secondary served as amazing ambassadors for Canada, writes Insp. Randall Marquardt (centre).

Leaders of today and tomorrow Editor: Last month, I had the opportunity to chaperone 34 Grade 11 and 12 students from Elgin Park Secondary. We spent 10 busy but fantastic days touring France, Monaco and Italy. I am a member of the RCMP who proudly serves in the city of Surrey as a watch commander. With 30 years of policing under my belt, I have had many diverse encounters and experiences with youth. Occasionally, it becomes difficult to avoid negativity and cynicism when my job requires me to deal with some negative issues on a daily basis. However, I know the reality is that we live in a wonderful country and community with people who care and want the best for each other. My trip with the students from Elgin Park Secondary solidified these beliefs. I feel confident that we are in great hands with today’s youth. The students were amazing ambassadors for this beautiful country of ours! They were respectful, mature, appreciative and fun to be around. I have awesome memories with them that I will cherish forever. I take my hat off to these kids, knowing they will all become respected, contributing members of society. I also salute the parents who did an excellent job in

raising their kids, our future. Thank you from all of us. I would like to also acknowledge the teacher supervisors: Marti Player, Trish Wagner, Susan Janzen and Mini Gill. In my experience as a student, I never had the opportunity to work and learn with such a committed group of teachers. When Marti, the tour leader and international languages department head of at Elgin Park, invited me to join their team, I had no idea what to expect nor did I know any of the students. The supervisory team was not only solid; it was fun to be a part of. The teachers made my role easier by always being positive, organized and flexible. However, what impressed me the most was how much they really liked their students and wanted them to have an unforgettable experience. Elgin Park students are fortunate to be surrounded by such a caring group of educators. I would finally like to add that during my voyage with 34 teenagers, I think I may have gained the interest of a few who may want to pursue a career in policing. For this I am excited, as I would be proud to have any of them on my team of police officers. Insp. R.W. (Randall) Marquardt, Officer in charge, ‘C’ Watch, Surrey RCMP

Guilty plea for 1973 indecent assault charge

Gaudry admits to third sex-related charge Sheila Reynolds Black Press

White Rock resident Kip Gaudry – a former senior employee with the municipality of Delta – has pleaded guilty to indecent assault in connection with a 1973 incident in Manitoba. Gaudry was charged in the fall of 2010 in a case that Winnipeg Police Service said concerned “a historic sexual assault involving a child.” Though he was expected to plead guilty last December, the matter was repeatedly put forward and the plea was not formally entered in Vancouver Provincial Court until Monday. It marks Gaudry’s third admission of guilt on sex-related criminal charges. The former director of engineering in Delta quit his job in 2009

U.S. border guard Chris Wilder (far right) and his Washington-based chariot-racing team, the Pacific Northwest Ponies, are coming to Surrey for the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair May 18 - 21. The racing team will be decked out in full gladiator gear, right down to the sandals, when racing on the Friday. It’s the first time the sport will be showcased in Surrey.

Rodeo showcases sport for the first time in Surrey

Chariots will be racing into Cloverdale Kevin Diakiw Black Press

He’s watched the madness of chariot racing all his life with a mixture of admiration and awe. Craig Wilder has looked on in amazement at groups of men dressed in gladiator outfits being pulled around by horses thundering around a rodeo track. The only thing keeping the men in the small buckets is their own balance – there’s nothing to hold onto but reins. Wilder, a 49-year-old native of Whatcom County, Wash. decided two years ago to buy a chariot rig from a friend and give the sport a try. There was no turning back. The U.S border guard of four years calls the activity “a high-

speed adrenaline rush” and a refreshing departure from his day job guarding the 49th parallel. “I use it as my stress relief,” Wilder said in an interview. Wilder and a team of four other Washington residents called the

lot of it is luck of the draw. “There really is no trick,” Wilder says. “Just get a good start at the starting line.” Chariot racing takes place on Friday, with smaller shows throughout the weekend. Friday will feature a free drive, Wilder says, where they just let the horses run. It’s the fastest race and someone is sure to take a spill, he assures. “It’s a fun time. If you’re looking for the most bang for your buck, it’s Friday.” That said, the chariots will be busting loose periodically through the weekend at the rodeo pit. There will also be five rodeo performances in three days, from May 19-21.

Migrant birds are often very punctual, and birdwatchers can anticipate particular species in any one week. The hermit thrush that appeared suddenly in my backyard was not unexpected; he or his cousin had been there the same time last year. Colourful warblers, of several different species, time their arrival with the emergence of insects. They reveal their presence with little bursts of song, yet are difficult to see among newly-opened leaves. Our local habitats support over 300 bird species, bringing a unique quality of life to our community, linking us with distant lands and providing beautiful sights and sounds. We have a responsibility to the world to ensure their survival.

lifestyles Surrey professional griller to compete in cook-off

Dr. Wendy Ching

Seeking thrills with the grill

is pleased to announce her association with

Dr. Thomas Lee and Peninsula Dental Centre

Dan Pearce Black Press

Surrey’s Brian Misko fell in love with the thrill of grilling seven years ago, but only since March 2010 has he been “a professional barbecue guy.” Two years ago, Misko quit his software job and began focusing on professional barbecuing, entering competitions and winning awards. “In every competition, we’ve won at least one award, if not many,” he said. “Grand championships and championships and things like that.” One of the aspects of grilling that drew Misko to slow-cooked barbecuing is the “overwhelming flavour experience.” “That’s one of the things that really struck me. There’s nothing that’s really subtle about it,” he said. “It just kind of smacks you around and you say, ‘damn this is good’.” Misko’s next competition is close to home. The first-ever Cloverdale Cowboy Cook-off is set to heat up this weekend, as part of the annual Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair, which runs from May 18-21. More than 25 different teams will compete for $10,000 in cash prizes at the cook off. The competition begins Saturday afternoon with a pie and chili contest at 1 p.m. Next is an Iron

Surrey’s Brian Misko shows off his tools for barbecuing success. Chef-style contest, Battle Bacon at 4 p.m. Each team is given five pounds of bacon and one hour to make whatever they want, as long as the feature ingredient is bacon. After the teams have submitted their food to the judges, they will pass out samples to the public. The process, Misko says, can be intimidating, because you don’t really know what the judges are thinking. “You’re just hoping for the best,” he said. Teams begin cooking meat for Sunday’s Cloverdale Cowboy Cook-off after Battle Bacon, as some meats will be cooked for 12-16 hours. The teams will then turn in different meat entries to be judged every hour, on the hour, beginning at 11 a.m Sunday. Awards are given out at 5 p.m.

“Any given Sunday, you can have a good day or you can have a bad day. You have no idea – just take it as it is,” Misko said. Misko was tight-lipped on his game plan for the cook-off. “In competitive barbecue, there is a very clear game plan and there’s very particular rubs and seasonings that you use,” Misko said. “But they’re all top secret.” Misko encourages people to attend the cook-off because that’s what he was doing seven years ago. “I went to barbecue competitions just like the people coming to the Cloverdale cook-off and seven years later, here I am. It changed my life.” For more, visit http://bit.ly/ HwhMPE

White Rock’s beach hero Carolyn Prentice of White Rock has been awarded the Rene Savenye Memorial Scholarship, the prestigious award named after the late amateur naturalist from Surrey. Prentice was presented with the award on Friday (May 5) by Margaret Cuthbert, President of Friends of Semiahmoo Bay Society (FoSBS). Prentice, who graduated from Elgin Park Secondary school in 2008, is pursuing an honors degree in biology with a specialization in marine biology. She has carried out three fieldbased, self-directed projects on eelgrass and algal ecology and this summer will continue her work assisting two graduate students with their field work in eelgrass ecology. After graduation she plans to pursue a masters degree in Ecology. Since 2009, Prentice has volunteered with Friends of Semiahmoo Bay Society a volunteerbased, non-profit group that seeks to protect and restore local marine and estuarine environments.

She was named the Beach Hero summer staff person in 2010. The $1,000 Rene Savenye Scholarship is presented annually to post-secondary students and is made available through donations to BC Nature. It is awarded in memory of Rene Savenye, a widely recognized naturalist, educator. The retired school teacher from Princess Margaret Second-

ary School gained fame for his discovery of a bee fossil in 1995 at Quilchena, near Merritt, estimated to be between 50 and 54 million years old. The bee is a previously undescribed species and believed to be the second oldest fossilized bee in the world. Savenye died in 2002 when he was struck by lighting near Lake Louise while searching for fossils. He was posthumously awarded the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal and became the first recipient of an award named after him and presented by the B.C. Paleontological Alliance.

6 weeks after CoolSculpting™

Before the CoolSculpting procedure

CoolSculpting is the revolutionary new body contouring treatment that precisely targets the stubborn fat you want to lose. It's never been easier to sculpt the body you want – naturally, safely and without surgery or downtime. Coolsculpting with undeniable results after just one treatment.

A new surgery-free, non-invasive technique gets rid of unwanted fat! Even if you’ve endured never-ending marathon workouts, you probably have pockets of plump that won’t budge. And while going under the knife may be tempting, the pain is not! Now you don’t have to. Thanks to Zeltiq a new surgery-free FDA approved technique is available and New Beauty Institute

The

OVER 24 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE Recipient of 8 “Excellence in Design” Awards Holder of four industry leading certifications

is pleased to have been chosen to be able to offer the treatment. How it works: As temperatures plunge, fat cells freeze long before muscle, skin or any other tissue does! Zeltiq Coolsculpting takes advantage of this by chilling fat deposits to around 45 degrees. “Damaged, frozen fat cells can’t be repaired by the body, so they’re smoothing out even stubborn fat pads within two to four months” says dermatologist Mark S. Nestor, M.D., Director of the Center for Cosmetic Enhancement in Miami, Florida. And specific troublespots can be easily targeted! What to expect: Zeltiq Coolsculpting takes about one hour per treated area. Since no anaesthetics, needles, or incisions are needed you can head back to your normal activities right away; there is no downtime. Treated areas tend to look red and feel a bit stiff for about 20 minutes, and some patients experience temporary bruising, numbness, or tenderness.

ESTIMATES

What studies show: “Zeltiq removes 20% - 25% of the fat from treated areas, but patients say their troublespots actually shrink 40% - 50%.” “It’s producing better results than the research had predicted. Patients love it!” The catch: If you’re obese, you will not be happy with this treatment, notes Caree Ludwar, owner of New Beauty Institute. “It’s meant for people who are close to their ideal body weight and want to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat - the sort of thing that wrecks the way clothing fits. However, we have had very good results with larger belly areas on some patients.”

A new private school for children with learning disabilities will open on the Peninsula in September. The White Rock Eaton Arrowsmith School is the latest of a series of schools, based on the educational principles of Barbara ArrowsmithYoung, who opened the first Arrowsmith School, in Toronto, more than 30 years ago. The schools follow Arrowsmith-Young’s belief that a regimen of mental exercises can change neural networks, improving cognitive functions of children with learning disabilities and attention disorders. The White Rock school will be located at 1538 Foster St. (Unit 300-301) teaching 25 to 30 students for an average of three years, after which they will transition back into a regular educational environment.

lifestyles Gold medal winner for national contest

Local cadet hits the mark A sharp eye and steady hands have won a local teen top medals at the National Cadet Marksmanship Competition held earlier this month. Matthew Wong was awarded a gold medal, the Clément Tremblay Trophy for top junior marksman, given to the cadet with the highest cumulative results at the competition. The 14-year-old Wong represented the local 907 White Rock Air Cadets Squadron and British Columbia’s composite team during the event, held May 5-12 in Valcartier, Que. He also scored a bronze medal for shooting in the Junior category, prone individual competition. Wong placed 15 overall among 125 competitors. The National Cadet Marksmanship Championship was the final event in the year-long Marksmanship Training Program for cadets across the country. The cadet marksmanship program is patterned on Olympicstyle competitive shooting, and several Canadian Olympians got their start through the cadet program, including Pat Vamplew and Mike Ashcroft.

I

t was 33 years ago when a small group of residents and bike racing enthusiasts put together plans for a local bike race to be held around the beaches and hills of the city of White Rock. From those days of few racers, few prizes, few volunteers, and even fewer spectators, it has grown into the second longest continuous bicycle race in North America. In recent years, the race has appeared on professional road racing calendars around the world, with a number of riders targeting the race as a highlight of their season. And over the years, the Tour has seen many world famous racers including medalists in the Olympic and Commonwealth Games, and World Championships. (Two racers who earned their stripes in the Tour de White Rock are currently racing in Europe—Tyler Farrar, a sprinter with Garmin-Barracuda, and Sven Tuft, a Langley resident, currently riding for GreenEDGE)

www.peacearchnews.com 23

As an introduction into the weekend of racing, the Tour de White Rock, in conjunction with the Peace Arch News, is presenting another in the weekly series of health and well-being articles for those looking for ideas on how to implement and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Three local experts will be giving tips and advice on such things as grocery shopping for success, what to eat on the go and the best way to fuel for fitness (provided by Sheila Fetter a dietician with Choices Markets); fitness advice, including tips on how to increase and maintain your strength, cycling as a fitness tool, and how to implement a regular ‘fit’ lifestyle (written by Shirley Garrett, President of Leaps & Bounds Personal Fitness Training); and information on the Tour itself, how to train for the Just Giver Amateur Hill Climb--yes the Amateur Hill Climb is back again for those locals willing to ‘give it a go’ (provided by Barry Dalziel, owner of

South Surrey Cycles, an NCCP cycling coach, and Race Director for the Tour de White Rock). Each of our experts will target a different topic each week, providing a different perspective on how to help you make healthier choices in your life. See you on the bike! If you have any specific questions to ask of the experts please feel free to contact them via email (see below for details).

Transit Police say they’ve been getting plenty of calls from fare evaders wanting to pay off old fines after the province moved to legislate tough new measures to collect unpaid tickets. The force says its phone lines have been busy since Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom said ICBC will withhold licence and insurance renewals to compel scofflaws to pay their TransLink fare evasion fines. TransLink will also be empowered to use bill collectors, small claims court or deny transit service, among other options. “It’s a nice surprise,” Transit Police spokesperson Carol Schinkel said of the

response. Some callers know they have an outstanding ticket and want to pay, she said, while others can’t remember if they paid an old ticket and want to check. A few others with a stack of unpaid fines who “were concerned they can’t pay for it all” wanted to arrange partial payment for now, Schinkel said. All the calls are being referred to ICBC, which handles payments and inquiries, at 1-800-950-1498 or at www.icbc.com/ driver-licensing/tickets/ paying-disputing/ paying-violation. Fine payment information is also on the back of tickets. Transit Police last year issued 57,000 fare evasion tickets or nearly $10 million worth.

find a further $30 million a year in savings to revive a now-frozen transit expansion, which includes the King George B Line in Surrey and RapidBus service over the Port Mann Bridge. The province has dispatched internal auditors to help to find that money. Price said the pressure to cut could also play out in other trade-offs other than direct service, like a return to more use of diesel buses rather than electric trolleys or hybrids, or other decisions that sacrifice environmental or other objectives to cut costs. So far, officials have said they will resist pressure to cut service, particularly to areas such as HandyDart for the elderly and disabled.

news Majority of schools needing seismic upgrades await cash

Schools set to be upgraded Jeff Nagel Black Press

The province is promising $122 million for seismic upgrades at 14 high-priority schools, while nearly 140 other schools also deemed highly vulnerable in a major earthquake will wait in line behind them. Schools slated for upgrades include South Delta Secondary in Delta, Aberdeen Elementary in Abbotsford, Alpha Secondary in Burnaby, Banting Middle School in Coquitlam, Argyle Secondary in North Vancouver, C.E. Barry Intermediate in Hope and École des Pionniers in Port Coquitlam. Three other schools in Vancouver and three more on Vancouver Island were also identified. The projects were picked from most-recent district capital plans and represent top-ranked projects based on an updated assessment of seismic safety risk, according to the province. But they represent less than 10 per cent of the 152 high-priority schools now identified on a revised list for upgrades under the School Seismic Mitigation

A technical team led by the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of B.C. has been working to refine risk assessments and response strategies at UBC’s Earthquake Engineering Research Facility. “Since the onset of the Seismic Mitigation Program in 2005, we have learned more about the nature of earthquakes, how structures behave during these kinds of events, and how to predict their behaviour,� facility director Carlos Ventura said. The province is exploring options to provide more money for non-structural safety improvements at medium- and low-ranked schools starting in 2013. B.C. has spent $790 million on school seismic upgrades over the past decade. So far, work is either beginning, underway or complete on 137 seismic upgrade projects across the province. For more, visit http://www. newsroom.gov.bc.ca/downloads/ backgrounder2_152_high_priority_schools.pdf

Surrey schools ranked high priority: • Bear Creek Elementary • David Brankin Elementary • J.T. Brown Elementary • Mary Jane Shannon Elementary • Prince Charles Elementary • Queen Elizabeth Secondary • Holly Elementary • George Greenaway Elementary Program. The estimated cost of repairs to all high-priority schools is pegged at $1.3 billion. Some old schools slated for upgrades were built more than a half-century ago when seismic risks weren’t well understood. “This is the next step in our ongoing and comprehensive program to make B.C. schools safe in the event of a major earthquake,â€? Education Minister George Abbott said.

Q

I am very unhappy in my marriage and am considering divorcing my husband. We have been married ten years and to be frank he came into the marriage with all the property, but it has all been used for a family purpose so all these assets are to be split 50/50, and my half would leave me well Ă&#x20AC;xed for life. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m comfortable so there is no rush. A friend says there are proposed changes in legislation that may affect my future? Is he right?

A

Yes. You had better get to your lawyer, because the proposed new Family Law Act, if proclaimed, will change the goal posts. Which spouse gets which property will no longer depend on whether the property was used for a family purpose, but who brought it into the marriage. Your expectations of being â&#x20AC;&#x153;well Ă&#x20AC;xedâ&#x20AC;? may be thwarted. NEW CLIENTS WELCOME

White Rock sisters to perform at Merrit Mountain Music Fest

Taking music in a different direction Alex Browne Arts Reporter

W

hite Rock’s Alanna and Brianne can’t claim to be seasoned performers

– yet. But there’s a feeling in the air that all that could change very soon. It’s been only six months since the tuneful, photogenic FinnMorris twins started working seriously on their folk-country act, yet they’ve already been invited to play as headliners at Vancouver’s Jericho Folk Club (the gig is this Tuesday, May 22, 8 p.m.), and they’re also booked for a spot at the Little Big stage at this year’s Merritt Mountain Music Festival in July. Only 14 years old, the Holy Cross Regional High School students have already played several business functions in Vancouver, including a mining executives’ dinner to support the Vancouver Children’s Hospital Foundation. And, they’ve showcased their original songs in a workshop at the 2011 BC Country Music Association’s awards week in Coquitlam. The current Jericho Folk Club show itself comes as a result of a set at an open-mike night there last year at which the precocious duo wowed the club’s Lynn McGown and headliner Graham Tait of the Calgary Folk Club. Even before that – starting last May – the pair’s efforts were attracting attention through busking sessions at Granville Island. It seems the only place Alanna and Brianne aren’t being recognized is on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. Expect that to change, too, as sharp-eared – and eyed – local music entrepreneurs discover the girls’ sound and fresh-faced appeal. It doesn’t hurt that their mom, Cheryl Finn, is a classically-

But Finn is quick to say that music is not the career that either of them would have chosen for their daughters. “We’re letting them do this now and see where it goes,” she said. “As long as they work at it and keep their marks up.” She did insist the girls take business classes at Holy Cross to help them deal with the allimportant economics of being professional musicians, and while the twins were initially resistant to the idea, they say business is now among their favourite subjects.

greater tolerance for old country and bluegrass than Alanna, who personally favours the new country of singers like Swift, even though she recognizes the importance of covering older material that audiences can identify with. Their original songs – such as In My Heart, which can be heard on their website, and a brand new tune, Part Of Me – are crafted with a maturity that seems beyond their years. Neither is shy about singing in public and they can see where their past participation in musical theatre, including a school production of Annie, has helped boost their confidence in performing. “I like the whole acting thing as well as singing,” said Alanna. “And when you get up on the stage to sing you have to be a bit of an actor, too.” “You have to go up there even when you’re not feeling like it – it’s very much like an act as well,” said Brianne. Both girls are looking forward to the upcoming Jericho Folk Club and Merritt gigs – the latter will be their first experience having a house band back them. And they’re also excited contemplating an upcoming trip to Nashville, where they’ve been invited to play at a house concert. “As soon as we get off the plane we have to go and sing – it’ll be like how it feels to be a star,” Alanna said. “Nashville is the place of dreams – if dreams come true,” added Brianne. “We’re very excited to go there – we’re going to try to play in some of the coffee houses.” The Jericho Folk Club is at 1300 Discovery St. (Jericho Sailing Centre), Vancouver, and the cover charge for the Alanna and Brianne performance is $10.

They didn’t win the contest, but they did make the top three. Richmond-based hip hop dance group Freshh – seven 13-17 year-olds including White Rock’s Zac Vran – were in contention right down to the end in Canada’s Got Talent, the 22-episode Citytv contest co-judged by Martin Short that wound up in Toronto on Monday night with a win by three-man First Nations clogging troupe Sagkeeng’s Finest. As of Sunday night, Freshh, which won high praise throughout the contest for their tightlysynchronized, highly energetic dance routines incorporating a wide variety of styles, had made a select group of three acts chosen from the 12 finalists. Contemporary band Angry Candy, from Moncton NB, as well as Sagkeeng’s Finest, from the Sagkeeng reserve near Fort Alexander, Man., joined Freshh as the acts chosen at the conclusion of the last performance show on Sunday night. By the time viewer telephone votes were counted on Monday, it was clear that Sagkeeng’s Finest had taken the top spot and the $100,000 grand prize.

Mikado shines on stage G

ood news for fans of the comic operettas of W.S Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan. Those who hold tickets to the remainder of the run of Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan Society’s 30th anniversary production, The Mikado; or the Town of Titipu Alex Browne (it closes Saturday), can congratulate themselves they’ve picked a winner. The show, in an unusual venue for the society – White Rock’s Coast Capital Playhouse – is bright, funny and almost uniformly well sung (both male and female choruses are particularly tuneful). The set, while simple, is effective, and Christy Zaporozan’s costumes are beautiful. The company – some 22 members – is only a little smaller than past Surrey Arts Centre levels, and choreographer Carol Seitz has provided them with interesting movement. Severest cuts seem to have been sustained by the orchestra, due to a lack of wings space on the White Rock stage, but musical

sight lines

Clive Ramroop, Rebekah McEwan, Adam Olgui star in The Mikado in White Rock. director Herbert Tsang copes well with the limited resources. It’s only during a brutally pareddown overture orchestration that one feels, keenly, the effects of reducing the irreducible. But artistic director Dann Wilhelm shows at every turn he understands the show well. In fact, many bits of comedy business and underlying motivations work better here than in other versions I have seen, while the lines and lyrics are projected with a clarity that ensures that little, if any, of Gilbert’s wit is lost (while updated interpolations, such as new lyrics for I’ve Got A Little List, retain the spirit, if not the letter, of his satire). It’s no secret this Mikado has – as one of its strong selling points

– the celebrity of popular hockey anthem singer Mark Donnelly. Donnelly delivers as the august ruler of Japan, in a performance that is, by turns, droll, quirky and amusingly manic. His Mikado is in a grand old musical comedy/ light opera tradition of dotty monarchs, which helps makes sense of some of the ruler’s more arbitrary pronouncements. In addition to his superlative singing, Donnelly demonstrates a capability for comedy, a wellhoned sense of the ridiculous, and a willingness to lampoon his iconic image. But, strong as he is, there are two others who steal comedy honours – and steal them so well they deserve to become fixtures of future FVGSS productions. James Walker owns the stage as Ko-Ko, the cheap tailor elevated to Lord High Executioner of Titipu. Over the years he has steadily gained the experience and maturity to match his wry and unusual comedic sense and, in The Mikado, his work at times evokes the smooth delivery of Bob Hope in his prime. Walker’s increasing mastery of timing shouldn’t distract from the fact that he’s turned into a fine singer, too. Close on Walkers’ heels for comedy kudos is Adam Olgui – who made much out of a nothing role as Pepe in the FVGSS  see page 36

AM I TOO OLD FOR IMPLANTS? Are you considering implants but feel that your age prohibits you from the benefits of dental implants? You need to know the answer. Age is generally not a determining factor. The key factor in dental implants is your health, not your age. Dr. Nelson can determine if you are a candidate. People are living longer and healthier lives into their 80’s, 90’s and beyond. There is no reason for anyone to to suffer through the last years of their lives with loose dentures and the inability to eat, speak and enjoy a vital and social lifestyle. Your quality of life is especially important at this stage and you need to do everything you can to improve it. Would you love to stay social, eat well and share great times with family and friends without embarrassment & difficulties that come with denture use? If you could have more control over your happiness, health and longevity, wouldn’t you consider all your options? Your dental implant treatment will be more convenient with ALL of your treatment completed in one office by one doctor using new methods & technology and comfortable sedation.

Walker ‘owns the stage’  from page 35 panto Beauty and the Beast – as the seriously corrupt Pooh Bah, holder of a dazzling array of bureaucratic posts, most of them in conflict with each other. It’s a role offering a multiplicity of possibilities, and Olgui, endlessly inventive – and blessed with wellmodulated speech, and an excellent singing voice – manages to run with all of them at once. Sean Donnelly, while apparently uncomfortable with the high tenor range required of NankiPoo – at least on last Friday’s gala night performance – continues to demonstrate the winning stage presence apparent in his performance as the Beast of Beauty and the Beast. He also shows he’s adept at comedy and has an unforced assurance in romantic scenes rare in a relatively inexperienced player. His scenes with romantic interest Yum-Yum are particularly well-played and actually develop a subtext of sexual tension – not a feature of many amateur Gilbert and Sullivan productions. As Yum-Yum, Rebekah McEwan sings beautifully. Her vocal range is perfectly suited to The sun, whose rays are all ablaze – surely one of

the most lovely of all of Sullivan’s settings of Gilbert’s lyrics – and at the performance I saw, the solo was flawlessly delivered. McEwan also succeeds in having fun with the part, portraying Yum-Yum’s pride and pragmatic inconstancy – and a continuing need to divert guardian Ko-Ko’s amorous advances – with a clear wink in the eye. Tamara Wilhelm and Samantha Andrews also bring excellent singing and sly humour to their roles of Ko-Ko’s other two wards – Wilhelm scoring points aplenty as somewhat acerbic Pitti-Sing, while Andrews matches her as the more than slightly tactless Peep-Bo. Jacquollyne Keath invests Katisha, the elderly lady of the court obsessed with Nanki-Poo, with a suitably chilling and intimidating presence. Her singing is also accomplished, but her performance is distinguished by the fine sense of teamwork she displays in her scenes and numbers with Walker as reluctant suitor. Clive Ramroop delivers his most authoritative performance yet as Pish-Tush, a severe – and in FVGSS’ version, more than slightly challenged – noble.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Kentucky Derby champion celebrates win on Peninsula

Jockey’s bold venture Nick Greenizan

O

Sports Reporter

n the afternoon of May 5, jockey Mario Gutierrez, riding Kentuckybred horse I’ll Have Another – sire of Flower Alley, grandsire of Distorted Humor – roared down the final furlong of the Kentucky Derby, and passed Bodemeister to win by one-and-a-half lengths. At that same moment – at Hastings Park Racecourse, 4,061 km away from Churchill Downs – Glen Todd, watching from a private room alongside 50 friends, roared as well. In the 30 minutes that followed, Todd doesn’t remember hearing a thing. “It was so loud. People cheering and hollering, clapping and high-fiving, hugging, kissing, it was incredible. We were so proud of him,” said Todd, a Peninsula resident and Canada’s top-earning horseowner, whose connection to Gutierrez began six years ago at Hastings Park, when he spied a talented 19-year-old whom he worried might squander a rare gift. ••• Growing up in the small community of Veracruz, Mexico, Gutierrez, now 25, always had an interest in horse racing. As a teen, he’d raced in a number of small, local events, and upon graduating from high school in 2004, was discovered at a track in Mexico City by Terry Jordan, a Hastings Park trainer who was on vacation. Jordan convinced Gutierrez to come to Vancouver, and soon after, the young Mexican rider was winning race after race on the East Vancouver track, making, as he recalls, “more money in one week than I made in half a season back in Mexico.” Todd, who owns more than 50 racehorses through his North American Thoroughbred Horse Company and is perhaps best known in local sports circles for his involvement in the White Rock Renegades girls fastpitch program, soon noticed that the young

wunderkid, flush with cash and confidence, was starting to be pulled in the wrong direction by suspect people down at the track. That’s when he and veteran trainer Troy Taylor pulled Gutierrez into their stable, providing him guidance both on and off the track. Gutierrez even moved into Todd’s South Surrey home, where he lived for four years. “He looked like he was maybe going to get off-track when he came here. He had a lot of friends in a hurry when he started to win,” Todd said Monday, while sitting in a booth at the Douglas area’s horse-racingthemed Derby Bar and Grill, which he owns. “We knew he had something, and we weren’t going to let him blow it, even if we sometimes had to kick him in the ass a little bit.” Todd also admits his interest in Gutierrez as a jockey was not entirely altruistic. “Well, he was the best rider there, by far. And I should have the best rider on my horses, right?” he laughed. The arrangement worked out well, as the combination of Gutierrez’s skill, Taylor’s

Gutierrez, who says he has a fatherson relationship with Todd, left Hastings Park a year ago to race at the famed Santa Anita Park in Southern California, but still considers the Lower Mainland his second home. When he refers to Todd, he always

calls him “pardner.” And, as Gutierrez is quick to point out, he’s always been grateful for the guidance he received from Todd and Taylor.  see page 40

Earl Marriott senior boys team to face off against Robert Bateman Timberwolves

Mariners seek Fraser Valley rugby ‘four-peat’ Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The Earl Marriott Mariners senior boys rugby team will hit the pitch today in Abbotsford, seeking a fourth consecutive Fraser Valley rugby title. And they’ll be doing so against a familiar foe – the Robert Bateman Timberwolves. The Mariners and T-Wolves, who will square off at 3:45 p.m. at Yale Secondary, have played twice this year, with each team winning once. They’ve also squared off in Fraser

Valley finals before, in 2009, when who also play Thursday against Yale the Mariners won 38-10 to begin in the Fraser Valley’s third/fourththeir run of three straight banners. place game. “We’re looking for the four-peat, Adding to Mariners-Timberfor sure,” said EMS coach wolves’ rivalry, Roberts Adam Roberts, whose said, is that many of the ❝There’s team is ranked No. 5 in definitely a bit of players on both sides B.C., while Robert Bateknow each other through rivalry here.❞ club and provincial rugby man is No. 6. Adam Roberts “There’s definitely a bit teams. Mariners coach of rivalry here, so it should “Sometimes, it can be a really fun game.” maybe be easy to look Both teams have already quali- past a game like this (because of fied for provincial championships, already qualifying for provincials), as have the Semiahmoo Totems, but these guys all have buddies on

the other side, so I think they’ll really want to beat them,” Roberts said. “I don’t think motivation will be much of a problem.” Though they carry a top-five ranking into today’s contest, Roberts admits its been a bit of an “up and down” season for his side. Aside from an exhibition contest against Yale, the Mariners haven’t played since a lopsided win over Semiahmoo in the Sandcastle Cup two weeks ago. If, as Roberts hopes, the Mariners are to use the Valley final “as a

springboard” to get on a roll heading into B.C. champonships, they’ll need to be sharper mentally, the coach said. “We’re a team that likes to run and gun. We’re very athletic, and the guys like to play that way, but against Bateman, we’re going to have to play good, positional rugby,” he explained. “We have to realize we can’t score every try by making a run from our own 22 (yard line). “And that’s tough sometimes, because our guys have a ton of talent, a ton of moxie.”

White Rock baseball squad struggle against Okanagan A’s

Tough road trip for Tritons

Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The White Rock Tritons’ struggles continued last weekend in Kelowna, as the B.C. Premier Baseball League team dropped four straight road games to the Okanagan Athletics. On Saturday at Kelowna’s Elk Park, the Tritons lost 3-2 in the first game of the doubleheader, and were thumped 13-3 in the second. Then, on Sunday afternoon, White Rock followed the same pattern, losing the first game by just one run, 2-1, before getting blown out in the nightcap, losing 13-0 in a game that lasted just five innings. In their first game Saturday – which went to extra innings – the Tritons got a strong performance on the mound from pitcher Joel Lamont, who struck out eight over seven-and-two-thirds innings, but Nathan Trueblood was tagged with the loss, after Okanagan’s James Walker scored on a gamewinning single from Dallis Senger in the bottom of the ninth. The Athletics’ offence got hot in Saturday’s second tilt, as the home team scored in each inning except the first. The Tritons, meanwhile, were only able to put together one

‘There’s not a lot to compare to it’

A Majestic addition to Main Street It can be tough to find a bit of peace in Vancouver, but Trafalgar Enterprises has managed to do it with their new development, Majestic on Main Street. With gorgeous views, great floorplans and amazing details, the development really lives up to its high-end name. “This is the only brand-new development on Main Street,” says Trafalgar’s Rattan Bagga. “There’s not a lot to compare to it, price-wise.” With two townhomes and 22 condominiums in a variety of one- and two-bedroom layouts, Majestic on Main is far from a cookie-cutter development. Each suite offers stunning views of Main Street, Vancouver or Burnaby.

“This is the highest point on Main Street,” Bagga says. “The top floor views are amazing.” Inside, the engineered hardwood floors are perfectly complemented by the custom wood cabinets and elegant composite stone countertops in the kitchen. The glass-tile backsplash is a great little touch that adds another gorgeous detail to the homes. Stainless-steel appliances is another modern touch. “We are putting in appliances that we would put in our home,” says Bagga. Homes start at $399,900. For more information, visit www.majesticonmain. com or call 604-638-9222.

What Areas Of My Home Should I Focus On To Protect My Investment And Maximize Its Value?

There’s no doubt, your home is a substantial investment. So it makes sense to protect it to maximize its value. One way to do this is with regular maintenance. While many homeowners keep their homes spotless on the inside, they may not be aware of what needs to be done to the exterior or “structural” areas of their home. Here’s a quick checklist of items you should inspect and maintain every six months. Your Roof. Climb up and look for damage. Flat roofs frequently show soft spots, or areas where there may be ponding – signs of potential leaks. Pitched roofs should be inspected for roof tiles and seams. If you see a crack or problem, fix it immediately. Your Mechanical System. Mechanical systems include your heating and air conditioning systems. Heating systems should be checked for deadly cracks and leaks, and air conditioning systems should have filters changed and checked for their efficiency. These small inspections will save you money, and quite possibly your life. Exterior Paint And Fascia. Wood exterior needs frequent inspection and maintenance. Small lapses can be costly. Inspect the exterior of your home for signs of wear, and stay on top of any required maintenance. Safety Systems. Check your smoke detectors and replace the batteries every six months. After all, the time you need them most is not the time you want to learn they failed because of something so simple as a battery. Also, make sure you have a carbon monoxide detector in or near every bedroom. It could save your life if there is a gas or heater leak.

Maria DeVuyst April 11, 1924 - May 11, 2012 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother and grandmother, Maria Catherina DeVuyst. After a brief illness, Maria went to her eternal home, surrounded by her loving family. Predeceased by her loving husband Joseph in 1974, her daughter-in-law Merrill in 1999, and her long time friend Oswald Strauss in 2012, she leaves behind to mourn her daughter Flavianne Sorensen-DeVuyst (Àance Wayne), son Dirk (Joanne), grandsons Jozef, Stefaan (Megan), Jordan and James and relatives in Belgium. Maria was a woman of great courage and strength. She touched many lives by her generosity, kindness and above all he great sense of humour. She was very devoted to her family and friends. Born in Brussels in 1924, she married Joseph in 1946 and they immigrated to Canada in 1953, establishing themselves in St. Boniface, Manitoba. In the early years she worked in the maternity nursery in St. Boniface Hospital where she and her co-worker were credited for having the quietest nursery on the Áoor. Soon after arriving in Winnipeg, she and her husband Joseph established a successful construction company. In 1969 they moved to British Columbia where they settled in White Rock and built the family home. They also successfully developed and constructed the Hillcrest Mall Shopping Centre. Maria was an accomplished seamstress but loved learning which allowed her to learn bookkeeping and she employed this skill both in business and her volunteer work. Maria received a life-time membership in the Ladies Auxiliary Branch #240 for being their voluntary treasurer for over 30 years. In her retirement years, she loved travelling to many interesting places. She was one of the founding members of the Belgian Canadian Association of BC. Maria will be dearly missed by her family and friends. Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Friday, May 18th at 11:00 am at Good Shepherd Church, 2250 150 Street, Surrey, followed by a luncheon reception. Internment at Gardens of Gethsemani Cemetary. Condolences for the family may be left online at www.kearneyfs.com.

KEARNEY’S CLOVERDALE 604-574-2603

I have lost my wife Clara of 63 years, and it hurts more than anything I can remember feeling. The mother of Alan (Shirley) and Bill (Patti Dibski) of Calgary, of Laura LeGood (Armin Semler) of Abbotsford and of Tom (Leslie Post) of London, Ontario, died of dementia in Salmon Arm, B.C. on May 7, 2012. Our family circle includes 10 grandchildren: Chris and Andrew; Sam and Alex; Jennifer, Joanna, Katrina and Emma; Hailey and Greg; and one great granddaughter: Hannah. Clara Johanna Spall was born in Kelowna on March 13, 1926, the daughter of James and Johanna Spall (nee Knippel). She went to school there and at UBC for a year and at the University of Toronto after the war where she was studying occupational therapy and I was attending library school. In 1948 we married in Kelowna, B.C. Clara worked as a therapist at the Royal Jubilee hospital in Victoria, at the Tranquille sanatorium on Kamloops Lake and, later, at the prison in Abbotsford-Matsqui. Wherever we lived she raised our young family very well; they went on to live their own lives with satisfaction and honour. She was accomplished not only in her career and as a mother but as a student – she made the Dean’s list at Fraser Valley College in Abbotsford – and as a woodworker and gardener. Clara was an engaging, outgoing person who has left us with a lifetime of memories. Whither I would go, Clara would go. We lived in Abbotsford, in London, in Cranbrook, and then in Dawson Creek for 14 years where Clara worked as a weather observer at the airport and became intensely interested in speed skating when our four children joined the local speed skating club. She became its coach, formed a club in Fort St. John and began rising through administrative ranks in provincial and national speed skating, serving as president of the national body from 1977 to 1981. In this capacity she represented her sport at the winter Olympics in Innsbruck, Austria in 1976, at Lake Placid, NY in 1980, and at world and international events in Milan, Los Angeles, Montreal and Quebec City. Clara formed clubs in Mission, Abbotsford, Matsqui, Sardis and Surrey, and in Whitehorse and Haines Junction when we lived in the Yukon. She is a member of the speed skating Hall of Fame. Clara’s wide circle of family including her surviving sibling, Beth Weick of Penticton, mourn her passing as do our immediate family and friends. We know how much we have lost. We humbly tender our thanks to the very helpful and understanding staff at Bastion Place and to doctors McCallum, Gow, Goldberg and Connor. Cremation has taken place. The family will enjoy the company of Clara’s friends in the common room at McIntosh Grove on May 10, and in Kelowna later in August. Instead of flowers, please consider donating to either the Canadian Cancer Society or the Terry Fox Foundation. Clara survived cancer in 1996. Rest in peace, Clara. You have done well and we are proud of you. We love you. Online condolences can be sent through Clara’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com

Evergreen Care Home (1550 Oxford Street, White Rock) is celebrating 50 years of care. All past and present staff and volunteers are invited to join us for a Celebration BBQ on Saturday, May 26 from 11am - 2 pm on the campus grounds.

MacIntyre Mary Kay (nee Haley) passed away peacefully on Monday, May 14th, 2012 at 4:30am. Fondly known as Kay, she was a mother, sister, and war veteran who leaves behind a sister and brother, 5 children, 8 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren. Her children include Eva Anne, Neil, Phyllis and Melvin, and Kathy Scallion. She loved talking about current politics and reading history, playing cards, and in earlier years, driving her car. In the late 1930â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Kay was probably one of the first female car owners in Nova Scotia, driving from work in Halifax to the family farm in Fraserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grant. She served in the Canadian Army and in Hamilton, Montreal, and Halifax during the war years. Kay married Joseph Frederick MacIntyre during the war; Joe was a neighbour from Fraserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grant. Kay & Joe raised their 6 children in Armdale, Halifax. As the children matured and left Nova Scotia, she followed her daughters to the West Coast, settling in Surrey and White Rock. Join us on Thursday, May 17, 2012 at 1:30 pm, in a Celebration of her Life at Good Shepherd Church, 2250 - 150 Street, Surrey. Condolences may be offered at: www.victoryfuneralcentre.ca

July 1, 1931 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; May 10, 2012

We celebrate her life as a beautiful and accomplished lady who will be remembered by her husband Mervin John Stewart, daughter Catherine Warnock (Robert) and grandchildren Stewart and Alyse, and daughter Karen Shannon (John) and grandchildren Jennifer, Samuel and Christopher. Lillian is also survived by sister Verna (John) of Vonda, Saskatchewan. She was predeceased by her parents Clarence and Kate, brother Phillip Wood, and sisters Phyllis (Phillip) and Elva (Donald). A memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm on May 19, 2012 in the Chapel at Ocean View Funeral Home, 4000 Imperial Street, Burnaby, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Daybreak Point Bible Camp, P.O. Box 18085, Vancouver, BC, V6M 4L3.
