One more step to Triple Crown Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

He’ll have another. One-time South Surrey jockey Mario Gutierrez, who now lives and races primarily in Southern California, is one win away from the horse racing industry’s rare Triple Crown, after he and Canadian-owned horse I’ll Have Another won The Preakness Stakes Saturday at

Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. I’ll Have Another and Gutierrez – who raced for South Surrey horse owner Glen Todd at Hastings Park Racecourse and lived at Todd’s South Surrey home, before moving to the United States – won the Kentucky Derby earlier this month, and have now set their sights on New York’s Belmont Stakes in three weeks, looking to become the first to win the Triple Crown since

Steve Cauthen rode Affirmed in 1978. After his Derby victory, Gutierrez, 25, returned to visit Lower Mainland friends. He admitted all the attention – from hundreds of media requests to an autograph-signing event that drew thousands to Hastings Park – was a new experience. “I usually try to avoid the attention as much as possible, as much as I can,” he said last week.  see page 4

There was nothing in Dennan Bruce Crosby’s history to predict his fiery end. The B.C. Coroners Office has identified Crosby as the 48-year-old local man responsible for a police standoff in Kamloops last Thursday that ended in an explosion and fire that left him dead and destroyed one home. Crosby strapped himself with explosives and entered the Dufferin house at about 5:30 p.m. For about six hours, he held the woman living there, Sherry Young, hostage, finally releasing her after a long conversation with an RCMP hostage negotiator. Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said that, while Crosby wasn’t known to local police, he had previous dealings with the law in Alberta in the 1980s and 1990s. Learned didn’t give out specifics, but said incidents had involved property and drug offences. Learned said Mounties had heard nothing about Crosby that would indicate he could be capable of his actions. “There was nothing that had been brought to our attention that would suggest the actions that he took could be either predicted or even suggested,” said Learned. “There was just nothing.”  see page 4

referendum, which often has the added bonus of bringing out more voters to the polls. Mayors were smart to bring up the housing issue at their Penticton gathering. At one time, both federal and provincial governments contributed a great deal towards social housing. This has dried up to a trickle, with housing becoming a much more political issue than it used to be. But it is obvious that this issue can’t simply be solved by the marketplace. The thousands of illegal suites in Surrey are testimony to the inadequacy of the housing “solutions” available today. Mayors are correct that they are handcuffed by their reliance on property taxes to fund most municipal services. Yet many B.C. municipalities have come up with some creative ways to deal with challenging issues, such as the drainage parcel tax in Surrey, which has done a great deal to mitigate lowland flooding and allow for more development of the uplands. There have been few complaints about that tax by taxpayers. A more sustained interest in democracy and accountability by mayors and councils might help convince taxpayers that local governments can be entrusted with providing more services in a cost-effective manner. At that point, it might make sense to give them more funds. Frank Bucholtz writes Thursdays for the Peace Arch News. He is the editor of the Langley Times.

news Canadian construction causes concern for U.S. authorities

Borderline fracases keep police nearby Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

Delays caused by construction to expand the Canadian customs facility at the Pacific Highway truck crossing in South Surrey have been creating extra work for police in Blaine, Wash. Officers in the U.S. city have been called out to deal with threats of assault and actual fights involving Canadian motorists impatient to get home, Blaine police chief Mike Haslip told Peace Arch News. “Unfortunately, there’s only so much pavement, only so many booths,” Haslip said. “Tempers flare.” An overhaul by the Canada Border Services

Agency (CBSA) was intended to improve capacity at the truck crossing by adding more inspection booths and traffic lanes. But that meant fewer available lanes during construction. Though he did not provide precise figures, Haslip said the number of incidents requiring police intervention on the northbound route to the Canadian border crossing rose noticeably over the last six months, due to the construction-caused congestion combined with a general increase in the number of Canadians going south to shop. He said it appeared most incidents were occurring because one driver would think another was trying to jump the lineup at their

expense, usually “towards the end of the day as people are getting closer to the border.” Blaine police have been posting extra officers along the northbound route, immediately before the crossing, during times when traffic is heaviest to keep drivers following the rules. That appears to be having a positive effect, Haslip said. “Things are getting better.” The bulk of the construction work was completed in time for last weekend’s Victoria Day holiday, CBSA spokesperson Faith St. John told PAN Tuesday. “All lanes were open on the weekend,” St.John said.

She said all of the new booths at the truck crossing were operating over the holiday, but “some minor deficiencies” remained, such as “pavement marking misalignments.” The overhaul should be finished by “early to mid June” St. John said. Until then, the CBSA is telling homebound Canadian travelers that they should ignore the pavement markings and line up based on onsite signs and directions given by traffic management personnel. Police chief Haslip’s advice to Canadians is that “if you come down more than rarely” to the U.S. they should invest in a NEXUS card which allows drivers to use an express lane and bypass border backups.

Faith in fundraiser

Church vandals damage sign Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Vandalism to an outdoor sign may have put a dent in advertising efforts for members of St. Mark’s Anglican Church Women’s group, but it has not quelled enthusiasm for their annual spring luncheon and sale. “We go ahead anyway,” Gillian Jones, past-president of the group, said Tuesday of the May 26 event. “It’s just sort of a disappointment that we can’t get (the sale) across.” Jones said group members were gearing up to advertise the event – their biggest fundraiser of the year – in a glass-panelled sign that typically stands in front of the 12953 20 Ave. church when vandals struck. It’s believed the damage was done overnight May 12. Details of the sale, which takes place this Saturday, were to be posted May 14. The sign, she added, was just purchased last year, and will cost about $800 to repair. “They made it non-usable,” Jones said. The sale and luncheon typically raises about $2,000 for the ACW, which disburses the funds to various charities and causes each December. Past benefactors have included Atira Women’s Resource Society and the Peace Arch News Christmas Fund. This year, it’s set for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, and is to feature crafts, baking and more. Jones is hopeful the forced reduction in advertising won’t affect the turnout. “A lot of people look out for it,” she said.

14 days jail after eight images found on computer

Minimum sentence for child porn Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A man who was fired from his job at WalMart and lost his White Rock condominium after child-porn was found on his computer will spend the next seven weekends in jail for accessing the “disturbing” images. The 14-day term was handed to Garth Steeves Wednesday morning in Surrey Provincial Court, more than two years after police searched his home. In imposing the term – which is the mandatory minimum sentence for the crime – Judge James Bahen considered, among other factors, the “quite low” number of illicit images that were found on Steeves’ laptop. At the same time, while the actions may have begun by accident, “there was an ongoing decision by Mr. Steeves to deliberately access these images.” The computer was one of two seized by police in an April 28, 2010, search of Steeves’ home. After examining the devices, investigators con-

cluded eight images on one hard drive matched the definition of child pornography, prosecutor Beverley Lane told Bahen. Each depicted a “fully naked” boy between the ages of eight and 14 years old in various poses, she said. While none of the images depicted sexual acts, Lane said the gravity of even accessing them cannot be ignored. “These types of crimes, child pornography and the consumption of that product, further victimizes… young people who may be victims of further productions of this sort,” she said. Lane told Bahen that Steeves came to the attention of local police after officers with the Toronto Police Service were alerted to “disturbing” images that had been exchanged via email. The account and IP address were linked to Steeves, and the search by members of the RCMP’s Integrated Child Exploitation (ICE) and Technological Crime units followed. Charges – including accessing child pornography, making or publishing child pornography

and importing or distributing child pornography – were announced in October 2010. Steeves pleaded guilty in March to the first count; the remaining two charges were stayed. Wednesday, Steeves’ lawyer, Stephen Hutchison, told Bahen that his client has been profoundly affected by his actions. In addition to losing a job he’d held for 19 years – including the past few years as manager – and his home, most of Steeves’ friends and family have “disappeared, essentially.” He noted Steeves now lives in a hotel in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, and was learning his fate on the one-year anniversary of his father’s death. Steeves recognizes what he did was wrong, and is sorry, Hutchison said. Steeves is to begin serving his sentence at 6 p.m. Friday. Bahen also ordered Steeves to provide a DNA sample and imposed 18 months’ probation with conditions including not to be within 50 metres of where children congregate.

In the Kentucky Derby, Gutierrez and I’ll Have Another chased down pre-race favourite Bodemeister to cross the line first, and the situation was much the same Saturday at Pimlico, though far closer.

Young’s boyfriend, Dave Madore, has said Crosby was only her co-worker, but Learned said statements taken after the

standoff indicate that Young and Crosby were in an “adult dating relationship” between April and September of last year. At the time of the standoff, police said Crosby appeared to be distraught about their earlier breakup. The two also worked together at a Kamloops-based business,

Learned said, and it appears Crosby lived in the city for an undefined period of time. Learned said Surrey RCMP were asked to look into Crosby as well and found no evidence of further explosive devices at his most recent Lower Mainland address, on 8 Avenue on the Surrey-Langley border.

‘Misalignment’ in White Rock’s grants-in-aid policy: city manager

Subsidies reconsidered Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

White Rock staff may be taking another look at the city’s grantsin-aid policy, following a suggestion the current legislation is lacking. Coun. Larry Robinson made a motion at last week’s governance and legislation committee meeting to suggest council refer the policy to staff to ensure it is consistent with the Community Charter. The move followed a motion by Coun. Helen Fathers to amend the 11-year-old guidelines to remove certain points entirely and alter others. Among changes Fathers wants to see is a stipulation that White Rock organizations be given priority for the

funds. She also wants a rule limiting grants to one per organization, to a maximum to $2,000. Fathers’ own grants-in-aid application, submitted in her role as manager of the White Rock Farmers’ Market, was among those not supported by the city for 2012. In discussing Fathers’ motion May 14, Coun. Mary-Wade Anderson said she felt the only fair way to determine which applicants are successful and how much money they should receive is to develop a standardized checklist. Each applicant’s success would be determined by how many of the criteria they met, and the funds awarded would be calculated through a unit value for

each of those criteria. “It seems to me to be the only fair way to do it,� Anderson said. “Everybody will have the same opportunity to do what they wish to do with the money that’s been afforded.� Asked by Coun. Al Campbell – who chairs the current grants-inaid committee – if the committee is being properly handled, city manager Dan Bottrill responded that the Community Charter takes precedence over any city policy. He noted there is “a misalignment� between the city’s current policy and Community Charter rules, and suggested having staff look at it could be the solution. Robinson’s motion carried unanimously.

Return of PST shows where power truly lies

T

he provincial government is bringing back the provincial sales tax (PST). It had no choice – it was told to do so by voters last summer in the HST referendum. The harmonized tax, and most specifically, the way it came about, was so reviled that a majority of voters were quite prepared to bring back the PST. This despite the fact that the PST is not nearly as efficient a tax, and does not come with the tax credits that the HST does. Voters weren’t even swayed by a provincial promise to reduce the HST to 10 per cent, which would be two per cent lower than the combined GST and PST. The Liberal government had no one to blame but itself, although that hasn’t stopped it from blaming leaders of the Fight HST campaign, the media, rebellious citizens and the NDP. But it has now done what it had to do, and the new PST looks like it will be at least a little simpler for businesses to deal with. Payments can be made online and timelines will be more harmonized with the GST remittance schedule. While the government’s new PST bill does not specify what goods and services will be exempt from PST, Finance Minister Kevin Falcon said the exemptions will be similar to those under the old PST. The list of goods and services to be exempted will be published as a regulation, making it easier for the government to add and take away from the list of exempt items. While this naturally has raised some suspicions, as the Liberals’ record on the HST has been one of a long series of broken promises (remember the promise that the price of goods would come down because of the HST?), it will probably be more efficient. It will be up to the media, opposition politicians and the public to publicize PST exemptions and any changes to them. The entire HST exercise was beneficial in several respects. It showed that citizens have the power to put limits on governments that exceed their mandates. There was no promise of an HST in the 2009 election. Two months later, it was government policy. B.C. referendum law allowed citizens to overthrow this reversal in policy. The HST debacle caused one premier to leave office and may yet cause the defeat of the government. Future governments will be much more cautious in going against public will, and refusing to listen to reasonable concerns.

Should marijuana be legalized?

yes 63% no 37% 155 responding benefit you in any sport, especially track and field. If you allow yourself to appreciate your talent, you will find you feel more content in what ever you do. Track and field, being an individual sport, can be mentally frustrating as well. Putting so much effort in and not performing your best can affect you drastically. With any sport, staying focused is key. Particularly in running, your mind takes a lot of the heat when your body doesn’t deliver. This can somewhat plunge you down into anguish. Recently, my father told me some inspiring words to remember: “You can not let yourself get too down or too happy because it will make the downs seem more drastic than they really are.” Keep note of this, fellow athletes. Looking at both the accomplishments and failures of my track and crosscountry careers, I realize I have enjoyed the majority of it. Even the sorrows have made me into a stronger athlete. From track races in extreme heat, to cross-country competitions in the bitter cold, reflecting on the past allows me to understand how important my sport is to me. I hope to continue racing on that brilliant red oval and those endless trails as long as I can. Ever since that dreadful day in Crescent Park, I thank my parents immensely for introducing me to a sport that has shaped me into the passionate runner that I am.

Editor: Re: Return to PST, May 15. Kevin Falcon has finally announced his plans for the return to the PST. As per the voters’ demands, this is centered on bringing back all the old exemptions. But after 19 months of HST taxes at $2 billion per year, new software will mean 100 fewer clerical people needed to run the PST – a grand savings of $9 million per year. Falcon’s business professors might be proud of him, but the B.C. public can see through this latest spinning smokescreen. The biggest mistake made by the public on the HST referendum was to assume that when we voted to return to the ‘status quo ante’ we all assumed it would be right away. What fools we were to trust these sellers of snake oil. All the systems were in place and it should have taken 90 days maximum to go back to what B.C. had before. If the government wanted to improve the PST they could have done this in parallel with implementing the people’s wishes. Well, the BC Liberals can now see from the opinion polls what happens when they keep trying to fool us over and over. They will get their pink slips next spring when the BC Liberal party disappears under the waves forever. Herb Spencer, Surrey

Editor: Re: Bigger issues than hemp shop, May 17 letters. The sky is falling, the sky is falling, or something nearly as bad is happening if White Rock allows a hemp shop to open in town. Or so it will, according to letterwriter Brian Marlatt. After all, the proposed proprietor is an accused marijuana trafficker. The key word, Mr. Marlatt, is accused. Big difference between that and being found guilty of. Obviously, he has not done his due diligence in regards to the pros, of which there are many, and the cons, of which there are few, of hemp. Marlatt also informs us that the Obama administration is opposed to non-pharmaceutical dispensaries. Really? You think? The Obama administration is opposed to anything that doesn’t help the pharmaceutical companies. As for getting a bad reputation and there being a correlation between marijuana, gun crime and prostitution, I can only think of

Re: Online question of the week, May 17-23. I am appalled to have read that 57 per cent of your readers are in agreement to legalize marijuana. The drug – and it is a drug – is proven to be mind altering. I can’t help but wonder if the majority of people that condone the use are out there driving around and working under the influence. In an age where smoking is being phased out with a list of can’tdos – which includes your living arrangements – will the same apply to marijuana smokers? Is the government in such a need to recover the lost taxes collected from the increasing population of non-smokers that it would legalize – and tax – marijuana? I realize people have habits whether good or bad, but when the

government steps in, chooses as to which habits are to be accepted, and not accepted, our freedom of choice is definitely jeopardized. Jacqueline Daudet, Surrey

Editor: Re: Calendar change ‘not new,’ May 8. Regarding your article on schoolcalendar changes, I think Surrey Board of education chair Laurae McNally’s quote regarding “bigger fish to fry” says a lot about her management style. It tells me she missed the point about efficiencies resulting from expanding school calendars. She wants “more capital money so we can build more schools.” Any management 101 grad would tell her that efficient and effective use of existing resources means using existing capital resources at full capacity, i.e. before building more buildings, use the existing facilities to their full potential, rather than part-time, which is now the case.

Better way to deal with him Editor: Michael Rafferty was finally sentenced for the brutal murder of a poor, innocent child named Tori Stafford. This is where the Mexican jail should come into play and we wouldn’t have to deal with him or his ex-girlfriend, Terri-Lynne McClintic, anymore. Instead, we shall have to be kept reminded as to Rafferty’s status, i.e. each time he has to be moved from one jail to another, each time he will be eligible for parole, oh, and undoubtedly he will be appealing his sentence, etc. Of course he is a sick person, so he doesn’t think he is guilty and will probably be wasting more taxpayers’ money by wanting to state his innocence. He may even want to write a book. He will probably be enjoying the comforts of a warm cell with colour TV, three square meals and ice cream, and will probably get paid if he is allowed to work in the prison. I just heard that they cut down the pay of prisoners from $6 per day to $4, and it saves taxpayers millions of dollars. I think they could do a lot better than that. At the same time they want to cut employmentinsurance benefits for people to save money. Does that make sense? D. Barros, White Rock

A legislative committee has recommended against a ban on cosmetic pesticide, suggesting restricted availability.

Pesticide report fails residents Editor: Re: B.C. committee rejects pesticide ban, May 18, www.peacearchnews.com Looks like the B.C. legislative committee on cosmetic pesticides chaired by MLA Bill Bennett has given B.C. mothers a lump of coal for Mother’s Day this year. The special committee on cosmetic pesticides report is a slap in the face to the majority of British Columbians. Over 70 per cent of British Columbians support a provincial ban on cosmetic pesticides to protect children from unnecessary cosmetic pesticide use on lawns, parks and playing fields. With appalling shortsightedness and lack of concern for public health, the committee has ignored scientific and medical studies linking chemical-pesticide exposure to serious illness, particularly leukemia, non-Hodgkins lymphoma, various cancers, birth defects, fertility problems, neurological disease and learning disabilities. Instead, the committee recommends very weak restrictions allowing “licensed” applicators to continue to spray and allow invisible chemical toxins to infiltrate our air, water, and soil. According to this report, British Columbians do not deserve the same health protection as six other Canadian provinces amounting to over 20 million people. Premier Christie Clark committed to legislating a ban before she was elected in her purported “families first”

campaign. Hopefully Clark’s cabinet has the common sense to see through this biased report and correctly respond to overwhelming public support, where British Columbians and the Union of BC Municipalities are asking the province to protect the health of our children, pets and planet. Ten years from now, this report will be considered backward and arrogant in its response to the demands of the B.C. public who have asked for a strong cosmetic-pesticide legislation in record numbers. Mel Tomiyama, Surrey

Guess most of us are radicals Bravo to the B.C. government for standing up to those foreign-funded environmental radicals who are trying to eliminate cosmetic use of pesticides. I am a bit surprised that 70 per cent of B.C. are environmental radicals, but who am I to quibble with mere numbers. The BC government is protecting my family and me. So what if my children are exposed to chemical pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides, this is a small price to pay compared to those dangerous extremists. Keep up the good work, Christie. Sorry you had to break the promise made during the leadership campaign but I understand you gotta do what you gotta do. Phil Harrison, Surrey

Teen’s recovery from a massive stroke inspires Rick Hansen  from page 1 “They walked the length of the plaza straight down to the stage,” said Amy Baumann, special events co-ordinator for the City of White Rock. “It was just very touching.” For Hall, 13, the magnitude of the moment hit as she approached the community centre. “That really hit me, towards the end – not many people are going to be able to do this,” she told Peace Arch News. “It just meant a lot, the whole thing.” Hall was among those who shared the stage with Hansen, telling – and showing – the crowd how she has bounced back from a massive stroke she suffered two years ago. It was a story that wasn’t lost on Hansen. “He said that my story was really inspiring,” she said.

commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Man in Motion World Tour, in which Hansen covered 40,000 kilometres through 34 countries in 26 months in his wheelchair, to raise awareness about spinal-cord injury. This time, the journey was shorter, stayed in one country and Hansen didn’t do it alone. Hall was among 7,000 citizens – young and old – who ran, walked, wheeled or biked segments of the journey, each one passing the Rick Hansen Medal on to the next. Saturday, Hansen lauded how far efforts have come in regards to spinal-cord research and inclusiveness of people with disabilities. Since his epic trek 25 years ago, the Rick Hansen Foundation has raised more than $250 million to accelerate progress towards a cure for spinal-cord injuries.

Describing the event as a “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity, Baumann said it was also a welcome chance to personally thank Hansen for his May 14 visit to White Rock resident Richard Morrison, who is in Vancouver General Hospital’s spinal unit after breaking his neck in a hockey mishap April 21. “He shook my hand, looked me right in the eye and said, ‘You know what, Rich is going to be OK’,” Baumann said. White Rock’s event – which was one year in the making – also featured performances from Semiahmoo Secondary’s youth band, local solo singer Payton Rector, students from the Todd Brewer School of Music, “Mr. O Canada” Mark Donnelly and a short performance from the Sources Life Skills Resource Centre Group, Events Unlimited.

South Surrey seminars about preparing for life’s transitions inspired by widow

Helping women avoid a ‘Woe, Nellie’ scenario Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

A series of South Surrey seminars to help women plan for life’s transitions was inspired by a worst-case scenario experienced by a client of Laura Thibeault of HomeLife Benchmark Realty. The woman, a Victoria resident, was planning to move to White Rock following the death of her husband about four years ago.

Since the husband did not believe in life insurance or credit cards, the wife’s life became far more difficult than it needed to be after his passing. The man’s death left his spouse with limited financial options and no credit rating. “He (the husband) would say, let’s pay cash,” Thibeault recalls. “She couldn’t even put her goods in storage, because you need a

credit card to do that.” And when the widow finally managed to arrange the sale of her Victoria house to finance the purchase of a White Rock residence, the deal to buy a new place fell apart because someone else had failed to prepare for life’s setbacks. Two days before the sale was scheduled to close, the seller suffered a bad fall that rendered

them comatose. It turned out the seller didn’t think he needed to make arrangements for someone else to handle his affairs if he became incapacitated. There was no power of attorney, meaning the sale couldn’t be completed. The lady from Victoria hung in for a while, living out of a motel while she waited for the seller to recover enough to complete the

transaction. He never did, and the woman eventually ended up having to buy a different property. Thibeault calls it the “Woe, Nellie” case (not the woman’s name). “Everything that could go wrong for her, did.” While the case of the former Victoria resident is an extreme one, Thibeault says it is not all  see page 12

SWANS speaker Janet JacobsenDoucette, of Comfort Keepers, says the title represents five simple strategies that will help women be better prepared in their later years: 1. S is for “Smart-sizing your home and possessions.� 2. W is for having “Wills and planning in place.� 3. A is for “Articulating your wishes and choices to your family and close circle.� 4.

business Jumpstart at Canadian Tire

A day for play Help kids from financially disadvantaged families get involved in sports and recreation on Jumpstart Day. This Saturday, every Canadian Tire store in Canada – including the South Surrey location (3059 152 St.) – will have a day filled with fun activities and draws to help raise money for their local community. Look for Go Clean waterless car washes, balloon pops for your chance to win prizes, table top games and much more. Last year, Jumpstart Day helped 30,000 children get off the sidelines and into the game. According to a 2009 Ipsos Reid survey, one in three Canadian families cannot afford to enrol their children in sport and recreation activities because of financial barriers. Canadian Tire Jumpstart is dedicated to removing barriers, so children can participate in organized sport and gain self-confidence. The growing national network of more than 310 local chapters play a key role in making the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program successful. Each chapter is volunteer-based and includes representatives from Canadian Tire stores, Canadian Tire dealers and petroleum agents, a variety of nonprofit organizations and charities and community leaders.

Surrey acting mayor Mary Martin watches Zoe Mills sign up for the challenge.

Students sign on to get water-wise It looked like enough water to last a whole classroom of children for weeks. But the Grade 6 class at Surrey’s Woodward Hill Elementary learned a surprising fact from acting mayor Mary Martin last week – that the wall of 426 one-litre water bottles in front of them represented the amount of water used by an average B.C. resident every day. Martin was at the south Newton school Thursday to celebrate the official launch of the B.C. Water & Waste Association’s Drinking Water Week by inviting students to take the Community Water Challenge. The challenge – extended to all B.C. residents – includes five simple actions that can have a big effect on water quality and costs. Students pledged to limit shower time to five minutes per day; to turn off the tap while brushing teeth or

doing dishes; to encourage the installation of water-efficient fixtures in the home; to not throw expired medications in the trash, toilet or down the drain; and to stop putting household waste – such as cleaners, paints and grease – down the drain or toilet. Martin delivered a message to the children that good water habits begin early, while noting that, as students at a LEED gold-rated school, they are probably among the most water-wise in the province. With standard features like low-flow taps and toilets, drought-resistant plants and holding tanks to collect the runoff from nearby hills, Woodward Hill is one of B.C.’s most environmentally sustainable schools. But B.C. residents are still generally unaware of the processes that water goes through before it is delivered and deemed safe for consumption, according to BCWWA studies.

Donation takes bite out of snack-program costs Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Sarah Massah photo

Jessie Lee students carry snacks into the school.

A program that works to ensure school children have nutritional snacks in the classroom has received a healthy boost. Surrey firefighter Mark McRae said a $40,000 gift to his association’s snack program from South Surrey resident Dave Balsor will go a long way towards feeding the need. “Every year, (program costs) have gone up, because there’s more schools, more kids,” McRae said. “We could spend $200,000 on

this program if we had it.” The snack program has been running for 14 years, and benefits about 100 schools throughout the Surrey district, including 16 high schools and eight alternate programs. Operating on a budget of $80,000-$90,000, the snacks are delivered three to five times a year, and fill the tummies of 1,500-2,000 children. Balsor’s much-needed donation is already in use and will support the Surrey Fire Fighters Association program for six months, McRae said.

“We keep getting stretched and stretched. For Dave to step onboard this year, was just so critical for the program.” Balsor, president of Ocean Park Developments Ltd., said Tuesday he learned of the program at the annual Mayor’s Gala last September and was moved to support it. “I was inspired by the firefighters and their dedication,” he said. “(It) felt like a good program to become involved in.” Balsor said his intent was for the funds to cover costs of the program through the end of the current school year.

We help get your life back to normal. Tracy Holmes photo

Grade 6 French Immersion students at Laronde Elementary donated handmade items to Surrey RCMP.

Students give from the heart Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The cache of critters in Wendi Metcalfe’s École Laronde Grade 6 class was a veritable rainbow of comfort – blue, purple, pink and yellow, some with eyeballs, others with hearts. While the variations in the knitted and crocheted creations were many, it was their destiny that made them stand out. Each and every one was made with a mind to easing the journey of a traumatized child. “They knew where these were going from the get-go,” Metcalfe said of her students’ wish to donate the soft projects to help children who have experienced violence or other trauma. “I suggested it, but they took it from there. This is them.” As the students clutched the results of their hard work, staff members of Surrey RCMP’s Vic-

tim Services program (both of whom requested their last names not be published) assured the children that their efforts would make a difference, distributed through the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences unit. “Part of the worst thing about having something happen to you is you don’t know what’s going to happen next,” said Marnie, who started with the program as a volunteer in 2004. “Your little stuffies will go a long way.” “People will love these very much,” added Rummy, also a victim-services worker. “It looks like you made them from your heart.” Metcalfe said the students started to learn how to knit and crochet in September, and quickly surpassed her own skills. “They worked really hard,” she said. Classmates Kiera Adams,

Nayah Mang, Emily McTavish and Nancy Luo combined their efforts, each creating five squares to make a baby blanket. Shea McMartin knew she would have a hard time saying goodbye to her blue stuffie, Chestnut, but said, “it was so much fun making them.” Marnie and Rummy surprised the students by trading their creations for a bag of the Teddy bears that are typically handed out to child victims. The pair told Peace Arch News the handmade hugs are important to the children – and even some adults – who receive them. “It makes a huge difference,” Rummy said. “When we call people months, years, down the road, they still have them.” The class also got to hear about policing from RCMP school liaison Const. Manjit Gill, and to check out Gill’s patrol car.

Paddlers set off to see the Queen Philip Raphael Black Press

“We’re going to London to visit the Queen.” Said by pretty much anyone other than South Surrey’s Elizabeth Villeneuve, you might not believe them. But she and Rena Pratt, members of the Ladner-based team of breast-cancer survivors who paddle for the Abreast in a Boat team, are doing just that on June 3. They will be part of a 14-women team of other breast-cancer survivors from Vancouver taking part in the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant that will feature an estimated 1,000 boats on the historic River Thames to honour Queen Elizabeth’s 60 years on the throne. Villeneuve has been a member of Abreast in a Boat for the past 15 years and says the idea was floated about a year ago while she was racing in Malaysia. “Someone saw the opportunity online for the celebration for the Queen, and she mentioned it to one of the organizers who was British and he said maybe we can do something,” Villeneuve said. Between those two organizers, a boat and crew was assembled. They are borrowing a boat while in the U.K.

from another crew. Their team name is Abreast from the West. “We’re going to be very close to the beginning of the flotilla on the Thames, which which stretches 11 kilometre,” Villeneuve said. “We get on at Putney and it ends at Tower Bridge.” The historic river will be shut down to all other water traffic for the event, plus the bridges crossing it will also be shut down, but will allow school choirs who have been chosen to sing as the boats pass under. As they pass the Queen’s boat, the paddlers will perform a salute – with their oars held straight up. “There will be a hip, hip, hooray, and all that kind of stuff,” Villeneuve said. The event is scheduled to be broadcast worldwide. “I’m sure you’ll see us. We’ll be in red and white and have maple leafs all over,” Villeneuve said. “It’s going to be very exciting,” said Pratt, who lives in Richmond. It will be her first trip back to the U.K. in five years. “I have been there before, but never paddled on the Thames before,” she said. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

Here’s some of the cruise vacation decisions and details you’ll want to discuss with us:

Northern Peace Country

Different cruise lines have different characteristics – some cater to sophisticated tastes, some to adventure lovers, some to families, some to those who want to dance the night away, every night. Talk about what you want to do while on board. Are the athletic facilities, entertainment choices, learning programs, spa facilities, dining options or stateroom amenities important to you? Each cruise line operates a fleet, and the ships can vary significantly in size, style and amenities. Again, talk about the kind of onboard experience you’re looking for. Whether you start with a specific destination or specific dates in mind, we can help you narrow down the multitude of choices. For example, if you want to go to Alaska, you can’t cruise there in January! We can help you select memorable onshore experiences that match your interests and budget. Many ships offer everything from traditional dining rooms to gourmet specialty restaurants. Cruise Holidays of White Rock can familiarize you with the options on your ship and may be able to make your dinner reservations for you. Cruise ship spa appointments tend to fill quickly. We can help you select special treatments and, in some cases, book them in advance.

Moving act by dance group A White Rock-based dance group took their efforts to share the culture of Scottish country dancing south of the border. Cheryl Jorgensen, of the Tam O’Shanter Scottish Country Dancers, described the opportunity to perform in Cuba as the most successful effort ever to promote the Scottish culture and heritage of Canada’s multicultural fabric. The dancers visited Old Havana, Cuba, for Haban Vieja, Cuidad en Movimiento (Old Havana, City in Motion) last month. Participating in the international dance festival was also a

chance to share some generosity. In addition to performing several times at the festival – which hosted representatives from more than a dozen countries, including Russia, Italy, Argentina and France – the group led hundreds of Cubans and tourists in workshops, and were featured on Cuban national television. At a joint concert at the Barcelona Cultural Centre, Jorgensen presented Alejandro Gispert Gilando, band leader of the Eduardo Lorenzo Pipeband, with instruments that had been donated by musicians in the White Rock/South Surrey area.

“Things in Cuba are very hard to come by,” Jorgensen said, adding response from the Semiahmoo Peninsula to an appeal to help fill the need for medical and musical equipment was “overwhelming.” “I was just swamped,” she said. “I had literally well over $1,000 worth of things.” In addition to musical instruments and accessories – from reeds and books to bongo drums and harmonicas – Jorgensen received dental products, soap and school supplies, all of which went to those who needed them most.

lifestyles Clifford Steele repairs motorized scooters and gives them away to those in need

Senior aims to keep people moving Monique Tamminga

Clifford Steele, 93, refurbishes motorized scooters and donates them to people in need. the maintenance on them for free for the duration of the equipment’s existence. With 20 already given away, he remains in regular contact with most of the people who own the scooters. “A lot of these people were housebound before, and they get a new life when they get a scooter,” he said. “They are always very grateful. I’ve only had one casualty.”

Out of the 20 he’s given away, one was taken by a drug addict, who sold it. The cost of a new electric wheelchair can run upwards of $5,000. A new scooter can cost $3,000. It’s a price tag seniors or people with disabilities often can’t afford. Bev Pitman of the United Way agrees. “My job connects me with seniors and I can tell you, it’s an expense that is outside

of reach, and yet a scooter can mean the difference between being a shut-in and getting out,” said Pitman, who has been working with Steele. “He’s doing such a wonderful thing.” Steele doesn’t believe in taking too much credit for it. “My philosophy has always been ‘it’s better to give than to receive’.” He said many scooters just need new batteries and he’s worked out a deal with Interstate Batteries. Ironically, he has been outfitted with an electric wheelchair himself, with his occupational therapist recommending he use it. So far, it isn’t getting a lot of use, as the spry senior still walks most of the day and when the weather gets good, he plans to be back on the golf course three times a week. If you have a scooter or electric wheelchair that needs some work and you are willing to part with it or sell it, give Steele a call at 604-530-1272.

hen life has been good to you, do good for others, says Clifford Steele, a 93-year-old war veteran who is one of the busiest seniors in town and is looking to make himself even busier – with the public’s help. For the past five years, Steele has been quietly buying used scooters and electric wheelchairs and fixing them up to give to people in need – for free, no strings attached. “I refurbish them and give them to people who need them. It’s a free service I’ve been offering and I’ve given away around 20 of them,” said Steele, who works out of his garage on the Surrey/Langley border. While he was doing this strictly through word of mouth, he recently got in touch with the United Way of the Lower Mainland, and since then, the demand for scooters has exploded, he said. “In the last six weeks there is an enormous demand, so the demand has outstripped the supply. I need some product,” said Steele. He’s hoping people will donate their unused scooters. He’s also interested in buying – at the right price. “I’d say I’ve bought about 50 per cent of them so far. They come from as far as California, Saskatoon,” he said. With a background in mechanics, refurbishing scooters and electric wheelchairs is a hobby and pleasure. He is able to refurbish up to three scooters a day, if given the product, he said. Not only does he give the scooters away free-of-charge, but he also performs all

news Auto-insurer to target high-risk drivers

ICBC attempts to shift cost Jeff Nagel Black Press

ICBC is taking another run at reforming its premium system to punish high-risk drivers and reward safer ones, but this time it won’t take aim at speeders. The move comes one year after Justice Minister Shirley Bond shot down a first attempt as ill-considered, particularly a proposal that one speeding ticket trigger higher auto insurance premiums for three years. “We heard loud and clear last year that people were uncomfortable with some of the proposals being put forward,” said Steve Crombie, ICBC vice-president of corporate communications. “The single speeding ticket option is off the table.” This time the public auto insurer isn’t spelling out any preferred scenario, but will sample public opinion on a series of options at province-wide open houses and online consultations. The main goal remains the same: adjust basic insurance premiums based on the driver’s history of atfault crashes rather than just the claims against the vehicle. The result would be a revenueneutral shift of insurance costs onto anyone who repeatedly crashes. ICBC says two-thirds of drivers would pay even less insurance than they already do, while one-third would pay significantly more. It suggests typical low- to medium-risk drivers who are either crash-free or perhaps have just one crash over the past decade might see their basic insurance

Commercial fishermen shouldn’t count on putting a net in the Fraser River this summer. Pre-season estimates of this year’s sockeye salmon run suggest it’s unlikely enough fish will return to the Fraser for fishery managers to approve a commercial catch. Pacific Salmon Commission chief biologist Mike Lapointe said 1.2 million to 3.8 million sockeye are forecast to return. That’s down from a run of five million last year and way down from the huge 2010 run of 30 million sockeye, believed to be a rare anomaly. “It’s a fairly bleak outlook,” Lapointe said. He admitted salmon run forecasts have been notoriously inaccurate in recent years, but said the small number of salmon that spawned in 2008 dictates that this year’s return will not be large. “The expectation is very low,” he said. A run of 2.1 million sockeye – the mid-point of the forecast for this year – would leave only one million harvestable sockeye after spawning requirements. And Lapointe said that would be entirely allocated to First Nations, who get priority ahead of all other users for food, social and ceremonial purposes, leaving none available for any commercial catch. The forecast estimates there’s a 10 per cent chance the run could exceed 3.8 million, and the same probability that it could be less than 1.2 million. Most sockeye are expected to come in early-timed runs.

Drivers are now paying more than $1 billion per year in gas and carbon taxes.

WHITE ROCK MONEY MART 1812 152nd Street

Gas-tax take tops $1 billion Jeff Nagel Black Press

Metro Vancouver drivers are now paying more than $1 billion a year in combined gas and carbon taxes, according to the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. The lobby group said the latest two cent per litre increase in TransLink’s fuel tax on April 1 and the next 1.1-cent bump in B.C.’s carbon tax on July 1 puts the region over that threshold. Drivers in Metro Vancouver now pay nearly 50 cents per litre in combined fuel taxes. “This is highway robbery,” Jordan Bateman, the CTF’s B.C. director, said last week. “Drivers are tired of seeing their hard-earned money evaporate into government’s coffers.” The federal and provincial governments and TransLink took in a total of $958 million from Metro drivers last year through taxes at the pumps, and the CTF calculated that will rise to $1.02 billion this year. TransLink’s portion will account for more than $350 million – the biggest chunk – while the federal government’s 10-cent tax pulls in $208 million from Metro, provincial gas tax of 8.5 per is worth $177 million, the carbon tax of 6.67 cents as of July will be nearly $140 million and the five per cent federal HST generates another $145.6 million.

Much of Ottawa’s take is handed back to TransLink via cities for transportation investment, but Bateman said governments should allocate all gas taxes to roads and bridges or cut them immediately. “We’re told tolls are necessary for projects like the Highway 1/ Port Mann Bridge expansion,” he said. “Clearly there is enough money being taken from drivers to fund these priorities, but government is spending the cash elsewhere.” Province-wide, motorists will pay $1.82 billion to various levels of government through gas taxes. Bateman noted drivers are further taxed through tolls, ICBC’s auto insurance monopoly, municipal property taxes for roads, development cost charges, vehicle registration fees, vehicle purchase taxes, parking taxes and drivers’ licence fees. “It’s no wonder B.C. drivers are feeling so stretched—government views them as its personal drive-thru ATM machine.” Vancouver area gas prices averaged around $1.44 per litre in recent days, about six cents short of the all-time record high.

trips were taken last year by 30,000 approved TaxiSaver users. Snider said it’s expected a significant number will be able to take conventional transit instead. With supplemental taxi service, which is dispatched by HandyDart when its vehicles aren’t available, users pay only their regular fare and TransLink covers the difference to send them by cab. Jane Dyson, executive director of the B.C. Coalition for People with Disabilities, predicts that system may prove more expensive for TransLink than subsidy coupons, where users pay half the cost. Not as many people will be able to use regular transit as TransLink hopes, she said, resulting in much heavier demand for the already overwhelmed HandyDart system. “A lot of frail seniors and people with disabilities will be less able to take spontaneous trips into the community,” Dyson said. “From a dignity standpoint, you’re taking away people’s independence.” TransLink Commissioner Martin Crilly had recommended more use of dispatched taxis, since the public subsidy for HandyDart exceeds $30 per trip. But Snider said the money is not being removed from the HandyDart budget to satisfy pressure from Crilly to find savings to offset a fare hike denial.

Metro Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lions Gate sewage treatment plant needs to be replaced.

Sewage costs loom large for Metro Jeff Nagel Black Press

Metro Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s need to replace its Lions Gate and Iona Island sewage treatment plants â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at an expected cost of $1.4 billion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is a prime example of why funding reform is critical for cities, according to the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance committee chair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re heading into a vacuum on how to pay for this,â&#x20AC;? said North Vancouver District Mayor Richard Walton, adding thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no commitment yet from Ottawa and Victoria to share in the capital costs. Walton said citiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; share of total taxes paid in Canada has dwindled from a historic 30 per cent to just eight per cent, and property taxpayers are maxed out in their ability to pay more. But an idea that has been quietly raised by a consultant to Metro Vancouver â&#x20AC;&#x201C; creating a regional sales tax

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is not one that is likely to fly, Walton said. U.S. cities make extensive use of local sales taxes, but he said the province would not likely share that power. Nor would it be a good idea, he said, noting American communities end up undercutting each other to try to lure shoppers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It creates a tremendous amount of not necessarily healthy competition between communities,â&#x20AC;? Walton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think sales tax is best left provincial.â&#x20AC;? Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said there was a clear acceptance in Penticton that taxpayers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prepared to pay anything more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no other easy option for revenue,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we have to go toe-to-toe with the other levels of government to get a reapportionment of what they collect.â&#x20AC;?

Prints offered for pipeline protests Alex Browne Arts Reporter

A group of local artists with a strong environmental connection have chosen a different way to promote protest against Enbridge Inc.’s controversial Northern Gateway pipeline proposal, which many feel will boost the Canadian economy. Crescent Beach painters Jennifer Clark and Reuben Kambeitz, and South Surrey painter, printmaker and multi-media artist Don Li-Leger – joined by Mission painter and tattoo

artist Bonnie Dobbin – or B.C. and national believe, however, that the newspapers, will be in project poses significant a draw for the art, all of environmental risks to which celebrate nature.

the draw on Facebook. “All of our work is very much involved with nature and the environment,” she said. Information on her website –including government and media addresses and a sample letter – aims to make it easy for people to get involved, she said. Enbridge proposes to build a pipeline 1,170 km long from Alberta’s tar sands to a new port in Kitimat, where crude oil would be loaded onto tankers for export. Supporters of the project claim the benefits will include some

3,000 construction jobs, plus more than 1,700 positions over a longer term, including manufacturing and maintenance workers to keep the pipelines operating. But that fails to impress Clark, who feels different levels of government are streamlining approval procedures for the project, which she fears could imperil the environment through the risk of a pipeline rupture, or a maritime disaster in B.C.’s coastal waters involving one of an estimated 225 tankers per year sailing from Kitimat.

he largest children’s festival this side of the Fraser is this weekend. And according to Coun. Judy Villeneuve, this year’s Surrey Children’s Festival will be the most interactive and hands on yet. “Kids will have more opportunities to express themselves than ever before,” she said. Now in its eighth year, the theme for this year’s three-day event is “Your Turn to Shine.” Children can expect a full day of fun, as they participate in a variety of games, workshops and performances. Kids are encouraged to discover and build confidence in their inner artistic skill and creative abilities, said one of the festival organizers, Marie-Soleil Bergeron. “It’s an opportunity for the kids to showcase their ❝Kids get talents,” she said. really excited New this year is the about the digital tapestry, where interactivity.❞ kids create illustrations on digital tablets, which Judy Villeneuve are then projected onto councillor large screens. “Kids get really excited about the interactivity,” said Villeneuve, who chairs the city’s arts, culture and development committee. This year’s festival also features world class national and international performances. À La Belle Étoile is a multilingual puppet show, adapted from Hansel and Gretel. The award-winning interactive physical comedy group CORPUS will also be performing this year. Chinese acrobat Li Liu will showcase extraordinary acrobatics, while touching on various aspects of Chinese culture. Arthur L’Aventurier will present L’Oeil de Cristal, a French musical with an environmental message and MiniMasterpieces will perform their adaptations of several known literary stories. The Gizmo Guys will perform Objects in Motion, their comedy juggling act, and the

local youth circus group Cirque Surrey will also make an appearance. The wide array of performances are “the soul of the festival,” said Bergeron. In addition to ticketed shows, there are

plenty of free performances by local and emerging talent on the Community Spirit Stage. And jugglers, stilt walkers, clowns, mimes, ventriloquists, costumed creatures and more will be roving on site all day, every day. Workshops include a contemporary dance master class, a movement workshop and a puppet workshop. Attendees are also encouraged to join the free Festival Procession in front of the Spirit Stage on Saturday (May 26) at 12:30 p.m. Villeneuve said if the turnout is anything

like last year, about 18,000 people will take in the festival, in addition to the 300 mostly youth volunteers. “The festival is a time for the community to come together,” Villeneuve said. “It really adds to the cultural fabric of the society.” The eighth-annual Surrey Children’s Festival runs May 24-26 at the Surrey Arts Centre and Bear Creek Park.

Kent Street showcase planned for Sunday

Seniors to put their talents on display Alex Browne Arts Reporter

The annual variety showcase is back this Sunday, May 27, 3-5 p.m., at White Rock’s Kent Street Activity Centre (1475 Kent St.). Producer and organizer Shirley Logan said she has been bending every effort to improve on last year’s popular show by including an even wider range of entertainers from the Semiahmoo Peninsula community. That includes two separate groups of junior dancers from Loretta Sramek’s Spiral Dance, plus old friend Rice Honeywell Sr. (of Red Beans and Rice fame) on piano, playing ever-popular jazz standards. Logan, who was one of the founders of the Vancouver Classic Jazz Band Ball in 1991, has also included another jazz act – one of band instructor Rob Leeder’s Elgin Park Secondary combos – in the line-up. The combo features Josh Harnak and Jessica Lin on saxes, plus Strauss Wilesch on piano and Paul Chen on guitar. “They’re Grade 10 students and

they’re fabulous,” Logan said. Two members of the Kent Street Choristers group, Heather Reid and Joyce Key, will both be heard in unusual solo roles in the show, accompanied by choir director Gale Lindenthaler. The versatile classical recorder group The Sandpipers will also be heard, and, to provide a complete change of pace, there will be stand-up comedy by Jessica Crane. Kent Street favourites, The Three Tenors.– also known as Russ Morgan, Bill Lewis and Terry Kirstein – will also be featured, and, at press time, Logan was still trying to confirm the presence of another well-known singer who lives locally. “I was trying to get the biggest variety I could,” Logan said. “We’re going to have a bit of everything, from little kids to some of the older performers. It’ll be new and different – I think it’s going to be a winner.” Tickets ($8) will be available at the door, or can be reserved by calling the centre at 604-541-2231.

arts & entertainment After years in Mexico, gallery owners back in White Rock

Artists’ well-timed return Arts Reporter

Chris MacClure is back in White Rock – even though it sometimes feels as though he never left. A fixture on White Rock’s Marine Drive scene for two decades before he and his wife, artist Marilyn Hurst, departed in 1997 to create their own gallery in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, the well-respected painter continued to be a frequent return visitor to the Semiahmoo Peninsula. Though by nature quiet and unassuming, MacClure is one of those personalities who carries a great deal of authority. Other artists seem to gravitate towards him, keen to know the latest about what he’s working on. It’s understandable. Without particular hyperbole or drama, the St. John, N.B.-born artist has achieved both commercial and aesthetic success over the years, with a distinctive brand of colourful, compelling romantic realism that captures the subtleties – and a certain core truth – of every landscape, natural or man-made, that confronts him. Now, MacClure and Hurst – who paints equally celebratory landscapes, florals, portraits and abstracts – are once again part of the White Rock street scene with an inviting new uptown studio/ gallery on Russell Avenue, across from the landmark whale mural. Together, with their studio partner – creative glass resin, mixed media and batik artist Trish Pollock – they’re inviting the public to a preview (June 1, 5-9 p.m.) and a two-day opening (June 2-3, 1-4 p.m.) at the new premises, 15177 Russell Ave. The new space has already drawn the attention of local artists, MacClure said, with a chuckle. “All the pros have already been in, poking around,” he said. Not that he minds, he said. The aim of the studio partners is to make their bright, unintimidating space a hub of what they believe could become a vital visual and performing arts neighborhood

abutting the Coast Capital Playhouse and the new White Rock Community Centre. As a first step, they’re establishing a weekly Wednesday night drop-in for visual artists (5-8 p.m.), with an invitation to “come by and share ideas, inspiration and camaraderie.” MacClure, who has used the Internet and his own travels to successfully promote Oct. 25 as International Artist Day around the world (it was officially proclaimed in White Rock last year), is hopeful the event could bloom into a week-long festival of the arts in White Rock by 2013. For those who simply appreciate art, the long well-lit space between two open storefronts is a great place to see the most recent work by MacClure and Hurst, take classes or party workshops with Pollock, or simply watch all three at work. Pollock will continue to keep the studio open in those periods when MacClure and Hurst travel, they said. The need to travel and paint more – and have a less stressful home base – were central to their decision to sell the gallery in Cabo, they said. “The gallery worked very well – so well that we ended up representing 16 artists and having two gallery spaces,” Hurst said. “But we were spending all our time packing and moving art.” Over the last year or so, they were looking to relocate to a base somewhere in B.C. “We were out on the road looking at different cities, including Nelson,” said MacClure. “Then, I sat down one day and said ‘what am I doing?’ This (White Rock) is my home.” Hurst noted that MacClure had discussions with successful mayoral candidate Wayne Baldwin, during last year’s election campaign, about ways in which a thriving arts scene in White Rock could be used to uplift the whole area – something that has been amply demonstrated in other cities in B.C. “But uptown is where it needs to start,” MacClure said. “We’re

actually part of a cultural area here, and we can add to it.” He’s not just looking at the studio as a place to sell art, MacClure said. He wants it to be a catalyst – and maybe recapture some of the fun that characterized the local arts scene in the ’80s. “It’s in the old tradition of the salon in the late 1800s and early 1900s,” he said. “And I’m getting tired of running around to PLEASE READ THE FINE PRINT: *2012 RAV4 Base 4wd Automatic BF4DVP(A) MSRP is $29,260 and includes $1,760 freight and pre-delivery inspection, tire levy, battery levy and air conditioning federal excise tax.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Athletes shine at Valley championships

Medal haul Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Last week’s Fraser Valley Track and Field Championships, held in Langley, may have been won by one of the hometown schools, but Peninsula athletes fared well, too, scooping individual honours in a number of sports. A pair of Earl Marriott Secondary athletes were the most decorated of all south end athletes after the two-day event, which was held May 15 and 17 at Langley’s McLeod Park. Kathryn Van Ryswyk picked up a pair of gold medals, winning both the girls 14- to 18-year-old 100-m hurdles and also the pole vault. Van Ryswyk’s EMS teammate, Grade 12 runner Deon Clifford, also scooped gold at McLeod Park, winning the boys steeplechase with a time of six minutes, 11.87 seconds. He added a silver medal, too, in the 3,000-m, finishing less than five seconds behind winner Timothy Delcourt of Kwantlen Park. Other Marriott students to finish on the podium were Ally Ginther, who placed second in the girls 3,000-m – she was also fourth in the 1,500-m – and Taylor Neveu, who took top spot in the senior girls high jump, clearing the bar at 1.55 m, edging Walnut Grove’s Shelby Smithson, who finished second at 1.5 m. The Walnut Grove Gators won the overall team title, capturing 14 total medals.

A trio of Elgin Park students also found their way onto the podium. Nicole Cremer won bronze in the girls 1,500-m race-walk, while Max Hanna placed first in the boys javelin throw, with a gold-medalwinning toss of 54.64 m. Richard Roberts was the top athlete from Semiahmoo Secondary at Fraser Valleys, winning a silver medal in the boys triple jump and bronze in the 400-m hurdles. Also finishing on the podium was Semi middle-distance runner Alison Williams, who placed second in the girls 800-m, clocking a time of 2:16.82. White Rock Christian Academy picked up two gold medals, from Luke Gin in the boys 1,500-m racewalk and Jordan Watson in the high jump. Competitors from Cloverdale’s  see page 44

Semiahmoo Secondary alums Paul Horne, Adam Roberts to guide Western Washington program

Coach, protege reunite on university rugby pitch Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A pair of rugby coaches with strong ties to the Semiahmoo Peninsula are joining forces to boost the program at Bellingham’s Western Washington University. Adam Roberts, head coach of Earl Marriott Secondary’s senior boys team, and former Semiahmoo Secondary rugby coach Paul Horne – who now coaches and teaches in Bellingham – have now joined the rugby staff at Western Washington University, which is looking to rejuvenate its rugby program. Roberts, who has helped out at WWU informally for the past two years, will serve as head coach of the university’s men’s sevens team, while Horne will serve as rugby director, overseeing both the sevens and 15-a-side teams. And while Roberts is thrilled with the opportunity to coach stateside – the sport has skyrocketed in popularity since being added to

the Summer Olympic roster, he said – it’s easy to tell, when speaking with him, that’s he’s equally excited about working alongside Horne, who was Roberts’ coach when the latter captained Semiahmoo’s rugby team in the late ’90s. Horne is a familiar name to those in Peninsula rugby Adam Roberts sevens coach circles, having coached at Semi for 23 years. He left in 2002 and since then has taught elementary school in Bellingham, while also coaching club rugby with Chuckanut Bay RFC. Since 2010, he’s also served as forwards coach at UBC. “Paul Horne is the man. He’s the godfather of rugby on the Peninsula, he really is,” Roberts said. “He’s so integral to rugby down there, and

when he was here, he was basically the catalyst for rugby here on the Peninsula. All this stuff – the reason the sport is so big here – it’s because of what he started.” Horne, who played at Western Washington from 1972-’73, said he wasn’t Paul Horne looking for a new gig, and rugby director was quite happy – despite the commute – coaching at UBC. But the chance to work closer to home, at his alma mater, and to reunite with Roberts, however, was too good an opportunity to pass up, he said. “Adam and I have always stayed in contact, always talked rugby. We’d had numerous discussions, but I was quite content at UBC. I liked it a lot,” Horne said. “But about a month ago, this opportunity

came up, and I thought it’d be fun to work with Adam again. He’s just so enthusiastic about rugby, and about this opportunity. I know when Adam’s excited about something, because all his emails start with, ‘Dude…’ “We have a long relationship, and I just love his energy.” Roberts will continue his teaching and coaching duties at EMS – he’s also the athletic director – and while that makes for a busy schedule, he insists it’s worth it. “I leave here in the morning at 5 a.m, go down there and coach the sevens team in the morning, then come back here to Marriott for the day,” he explained. He was sold on the WWU program after taking a trip with the sevens team to a tournament at Texas A&M for nationals last season. “We go down there, and there were banners everywhere – ones that said ‘Your Olympic journey starts today’ and ‘The road to the  see page 45

Batter up

Batter Jessica Kwak of the Abbotsford Chaos prepares to connect with a pitch from Carly Kirton of the Ridge Meadows Vikings in Girls’ Bantam fastpitch action on a Sunday morning earlier this month at South Surrey Athletic Park.

Meet was also BC Games qualifier  from page 43 Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary also had their fair share of podium finishers, lead by Ben Ingvaldson, who won gold in the discus and hammer throw, while placing second in the shotput. Rounding out the Tweedsmuir medal haul was Sarah Buckingham, first in triple jump; Allison Gallaugher, first in long jump; Jasmine Grant, third in 100-m dash; Liam McKay, second in 800-m; and Nick Smith, third in high jump. Athletes now advance to BC High School Track and Field

Championships, slated for June 1-2 at Burnaby’s Swangard Stadium. In addition to the Fraser Valley meet for senior students, last weekend’s two-day event was also a BC Summer Games qualifier for those athletes in Grade 8 and 9. The meet – which was a mix of school- and club-affiliated athletes – was highlighted by Elgin Park’s Jake Hanna, who won four gold medals. Hanna was first in both 100-m and 200-m hurdles, and both the 200-m and 300-m.

Elgin Park also finished first in the boys 4x400-m relay. Three Semiahmoo athletes also fared well: Julia Greer won gold in girls 800-m and silver in the 1,200-m; Katherine Reiss won gold in triple jump; and Chelsea Ribiero won double-gold, placing first in the 1,200-m and 2,000-m. Earl Marriott’s Matthew McLean won silver in the boys 100-m dash. The BC Summer Games are to be held in Surrey, July 19-22. For full results from the Valley meet, visit www. fraservalleytrack.com

Tritons finish fifth in Parksville Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

It may not have helped them in the BC Premier Baseball League standings, but White Rock Tritons coach Russ Smithson hopes a weekend trip to Parksville does a world of good for his under-18 baseball squad. The Tritons, who’ve been struggling of late and sit near the bottom of the PBL standings with a

record of just 5-17, placed fifth at the B.C.’s Best Tournament in Parksville last weekend, winning three games and losing just two. White Rock went 2-2 in roundrobin play, then beat the host Parksville Royals 4-3 in the fifthplace game. The only negative for the Peninsula squad was that one of their two losses – a one-run defeat to the Abbotsford Cardinals – also doubled as a league

But even still, Smithson said finishing above .500 for the weekend served his players well. “You could tell as soon as we got back to the hotel that morale was higher, the guys were feeling better about themselves,” he said. “It was just nice getting some wins.”

‘Pre-planning saves you ... headaches in the end’

Tech tips for new homeowners With the ever-growing amount of available home technology, buyers need to keep an eye on the trends as well as their future plans. “Pre-planning saves you money and headaches in the end,” says Lee Rente of Encore Security and Automation. He suggests that homeowners think about what they will eventually want. Everything from cameras to speakers will need to have a wire somewhere. The first tip Rente gives buyers is to make sure the house is pre-wired for sound, security, television and Internet. “Making sure a wire is where it needs to be will save you a lot of money in the end,” he says, since having to go in and

wire a house once the drywall is up will force the installer to cut holes in walls and ceilings to run the wire through. If you’re planning to mount a television, Rente recommends you look at the construction of your home first. “It is very difficult to hang a TV on steel studding,” he says. “It doesn’t really support weight well.” Instead, he tells homeowners to look for a piece of wood between the studs and behind the drywall. The advice he gives homeowners is to share. “Always tell the tradespeople your ideas,” he says, adding that it will help both parties on their journey to creating the perfect home.

On the bottom floor, all of the units have single-car garages except for B-plan homes, which come with tandem garages. Homes with singlecar garages include finished basement spaces with a bedroom and bathroom. For your guests, pathways crisscrossing the development will link

visitor parking with each building. Brady says these walking spaces add a sense of community to Pier 16. “It feels like you’re walking up to a home, not a number,” she says. Homes at Pier 16 start at $369,900. For more information, visit www. pier16.ca or call 604-542-1616.

Step up into class at Pier 16. The project, from developer Woodbridge Homes, features 41 threeand four-bedroom townhomes right in the heart of South Surrey. Touring the show home, it becomes clear how many small choices in the finishings add up to a satisfying whole. Where many developments opt for intricate, colourful and showy tile backsplashes in the kitchen, Pier 16 offers a relatively simple pattern with larger, plain tiles that remind the viewer of exposed brick. It provides an air of confidence, like someone who knows they don’t need to show off. Sales manager Trina Brady says this approach has made Pier 16 popular among younger and older buyers alike. “It’s very classy and simple; you can dress it up with add-ons,” she says. “It leaves it as a blank slate for the buyer to fill.” You get this sense from the whole kitchen: the quartz countertops are a little thicker than usual and the undermount sink is a little deeper than usual. It adds up to a satisfying package. The main floor kitchen/dining room/ living room has an open concept layout, and it flows well from one setting to the next. Brady says she encountered a bit of skepticism when describing the L-shaped kitchen, but that quickly dissipated when they saw the room in person. That’s because the kitchen L remains unobtrusive even as it stretches into the middle of the space. “The design here really makes it feel like a large island and not a barrier,” Brady says. Every home includes nine-foot ceilings, and you will get tons of light coming in from the generously sized windows. Heading upstairs, you’ll find the same big, bright windows in all of the bedrooms along with a good amount of closet space. A huge deck flows out from the master bedroom and over the driveway.

It spans the entire width of the house while extending out by eight feet, which provides lots of outdoor space for relaxing as well as shelter for your car. The master ensuite comes with a marble countertop, his-and-hers sinks and an oversize glass shower. The shower is big without becoming obtrusive and taking over the bathroom. Brady says the glass walls on the shower kept the space wide open. “To have it all see-through takes away barriers that would otherwise obstruct views where a normal wall would be,” she says.

It feels like you’re walking up to a home, not a number,” says sales manager Trina Brady.

Kitchens at Pier 16, above, are built in an open concept layout that flows into the living and dining areas, top. With nine-foot ceilings and chic laminate flooring, the homes are modern and elegant, and include thoughtful details such as quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances and plenty of natural light from the large windows.
