Hoping to save lives Clover Valley Community – and tax dollars Calendar From front

says, adding the money earned through prostitution feeds other criminal enterprises – brutal, opportunistic criminality that Rogers firmly believes should not be tolerated by a modern, compassionate society. “SAS saves lives, families, and tax dollars,” he says. Rogers, a man who’s demonstrated a considerable amount of individual will and determination in his physical goals, knows when it comes to fundraising, he can’t do it alone. That’s why he’s reaching out to businesses and individuals, vowing to continue the fundraising and awareness side of things. His ultimate dream is to sign up 10,000 people willing to commit $20 a month, for 24 months. That would bring in $5 million to provide the society with ongoing funding. Never one to sit still for long, Rogers has a full calendar of other feats of endurance planned. He’s participating in a swim relay from Sechelt to Nanaimo on Aug. 11. That event consists of six to eight teams with four swimmers each spending an hour in the water for a 17 mile journey. On Aug. 26, he’s taking part in 2012 Ironman Canada, which is a 4-km swim, 180-km bike ride, and a 42-km run. The Grand Fondo Bike ride is a 142 km bike ride from Vancouver to Whistler. Then it’s back to work for the fall, winter and early spring to rest up for the following year.

Grinches sour Family Day In creating a new stat holiday in February, the Liberals have brought B.C. in line with other provinces The B.C. Conservatives can officially change their name to the B.C. Scrooge Party, if they want to. Yes, these political Grinches don’t want you to have a new statutory holiday in February because it allegedly hurts the economy. Our intrepid independent MLAs stood up proudly in the Legislature and voted boldly against the B.C. Liberals’ plan (supported by the NDP) to implement Family Day on the second Monday of February, beginning next year on Feb. 11. A gaggle of independent MLAs, led by B.C. Conservative Party member John Van Dongen and party leader John Cummins, said an extra holiday in the long, dark stretch between New Year’s and Easter will cost businesses – more than $1,100 on average to pay employees to stay home or to pay overtime to come into work.

Don Christian school celebrates new mural There’s a wild, inspirational new look in the hallway

By Jennifer Lang Artist Jason Craft has gone “out on a limb” to create a wild new mural at a Cloverdale elementary school. The scenic mural, “Home of the Wildcats”, welcomes visitors to Don Christian Elementary. It depicts two tuft-eared bobcats in a woodland setting. Craft painted the mural in April, and the school had a ribbon cutting ceremony May 30, along with an assembly and open house. In designing the mural, Craft first consulted with students and the school’s mural committee, comprised of students, staff members and parents. The inspiration, says prin-

Major Midget League champions, the Vancouver North West Giants, topped off a stellar season this week by being voted to the MML All-Star Team.

Krogfoss, who is a Kamloops Blazers draft choice, has committed to play for the Trail Smoke Eaters of the British Columbia Hockey League for next season but he also plans to attend the Blazers main camp in August. Another Vancouver North West Giant defenseman, Joseph Carvalho, of Burnaby, was also selected to the MML All-Star Team.

High school spirit shines at reunion Alumni, distinguished guests gather for Tweedsmuir’s centennial

By Jennifer Lang Hundreds of former students, staff and friends turned out to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Surrey’s oldest high school last Saturday afternoon. The festivities kicked off with an opening ceremony and welcoming remarks in Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary’s gymnasium, were as many as 1,000 people gathered. A very special guest, Deborah Buchan – Lady Stewartby – is the granddaughter of the school’s namesake, John Buchan, Canada’s 15th Governor General and Lord Tweedsmuir. The organizing committee extended an invitation to Lady Stewartby, and her family, a year and a half ago. “We wanted to encourage her family to come, but of course, they were tied up with the Queen’s jubilee celebrations” this weekend, said Alan Clegg, president of the Lord Tweedsmuir Alumni Association. Her brother, the current Lord Tweedsmuir, had social commitments, as did her husband, Lord Stewartby. “She made a decision to come all the way out here for our reunion,” he said. “We were elated. She was so sincere, she was so genuine, and so many people wanted to talk to her and get her to autograph their programs.” Other dignitaries included superintendent of Schools Mike McKay, school board chair Laurae McNally, and Surrey city councillor Barinder Rasode. At 100 years of age, Burnaby’s Kay Charter may well have been the oldest alumna to attend the June 2 celebration. Charter graduated in 1927, and used to work at the Bank of Montreal in Cloverdale from 1930 to 1940, and the Royal Bank before that. Former students and staff came from as far away as Canada’s east coast, Hawaii and even California, and there were various informal class gatherings over the weekend. Former staff were on hand, too, including Clegg’s Grade 9 home room teacher and his Grade 10 English teacher. “Those kinds of people make the day for you,” said Clegg, Class of 1960. Attendees enjoyed reminiscing and chatting

about old times, he said. Displays on school history – including a 10-minute film created by Surrey Archives – were another hit. “Some people brought in memorabilia that nobody has seen,” Clegg said. “We had a whole gym full of it. But people still bring stuff in the front door.” The school’s alumni association organized previous reunions in 1993 and 2000. “Once they get into their ages of 50 and 60, these kinds of events become very significant in their lives,” he said.

Dylan Battye is a Grade 10 student at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary who is in need of our community’s support. Dylan is a strong, athletic young man in top shape. He is a member of our school’s football team, as well a member of the Canadian National Ball Hockey team which is travelling to the World Juniors in Czechoslovakia in June. Unfortunately, Dylan will not be able to join them.

Dylan is on his way to recovering, but due to complications from this illness, he has lost part of his leg and his dream of competing internationally has been shelved for the near future. Our Cloverdale family – his friends, teachers, teammates and coaches, would like to support Dylan in his recovery and encourage him to pursue his dreams. We are fundraising to purchase an athletic prosthetic. Your company can assist us by providing a donation of goods / services for a silent auction at a fundraising evening at 6:00 pm, June 15, 2012 at the Thirsty Penguin Grillhouse, Langley Twin Rinks, 5700 Langley By-Pass. All donations will be processed through Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary School. Cash donations can be made to the “Dylan Battye Trust Account” at any Envision Credit Union location. This event is endorsed by the Lord Tweedsmuir Parent Advisory Committee. We thank you in advance for your support of the Battye family.

Surrey cadets third at shooting event A Surrey army cadets corps has taken a top prize from a national marksmanship competition. The 2812 Seaforth Highlanders Royal Canadian Army Cadets Corps placed third at the National Cadet Marksmanship Championships in Valcartier, Quebec. The team was only 1.14 points behind the first-place squad from Quebec, and less than half a point behind second place Saskatchewan. The Seaforth Highlanders won the provincial championships in Vernon earlier this year. B.C. also took home three individual awards: Matthew Won earned a trophy for top junior marksman, and the

junior bronze medal in the prone position. Ryan Reiser earned the junior silver medal in the prone position. “I am immensely proud of what our cadets accomplished at this year’s National Marksmanship Championships,” B.C.’s shooting coach, Lt. Randy Bach said. “These kids put in an immense amount of hard work and training time into this competition and their results certainly reflect that commitment.” The event involves individual and team competitions where cadets shoot at targets of 10 metres from standing and prone positions using a specialized 4.5 mm target rifle. – Cloverdale Reporter

Fraser Valley Elementary School Accepting Registration for Kinder, Grade 1 to 4: 2012-2013

Clayton Heights Secondary’s dry grad party had a great turnout this year, and a long-standing tradition may be partially responsible. In order to promote safe, alcohol-free celebrations during grad season, Jonker Auto Group gives away completely refurbished used cars to two different local high schools. The tradition started in 1998. A student was killed in a tragic car accident at a bush party at Stokes Pitt. Karen and Karel Jonker of Jonker Auto Group wanted to do something to prevent a similar tragedy in the future. Karel realized offering a tantalizing incentive – great prizes – might help convince more students to celebrate their high school graduation at a dry grad event instead. Since then, 36 grand prize cars have been awarded to local high school grads, along with prizes donated by other local businesses, and attendance at dry grads has climbed. The grand prize cars aren’t new – they’re second hand vehicles that have been fixed up and refurbished, making them perfect for students coming out of high school needing new wheels for school or work, says Glen Gold-

Anti-bullying plan includes whistle-blowing phone app By Jeff Nagel A new provincial anti-bullying strategy promises more training to improve the climate in schools and a new smartphone app that aims to make it easier for students to anonymously report tormenters. Premier Christy Clark unveiled the plan in Surrey Friday, pledging $2 million for the new initiatives she said will bring a coordinated approach to the issue in all school districts. She said the focus is on providing better tools to help teachers recognize bullying and deal with conflicts appropriately. “We’re not focusing on the hammer legislative approach,” Clark said. “You can’t make a law that gets rid of bullying.” The plan mandates dedicated safe school coordinators in every district and calls for at least one professional develop-

ment day per year to be devoted to anti-bullying, although that depends on talks with the B.C. Teachers Federation. Anti-bullying training will focus on elementary schools initially, while threat and risk assessment training will be geared to middle and secondary schools. The strategy is dubbed ERASE – Expect Respect and a Safe Education. But Floyd Van Beek, a Grade 12 student at South Delta Secondary School, said it could have gone farther to battle homophobic bullying in schools, noting there is no specific training module set out for that issue. “It’s a step in the right direction,” he said. Grade 10 student Rachel Garrett, who is with Van Beek on the SDSS Alliance club that fights homophobia in the school, agreed and praised the plan for a phone app. “A lot of kids aren’t quite confident enough to put their name

forward,” Garrett said. “If they have an anonymous way to do that it’s going to be a lot easier.” Clark said gay and lesbian students are more likely to be bullied and commit suicide, but added “bullying is bullying and it shouldn’t happen to any child for any reason.” The plan also requires all districts to have stronger codes of conduct that bar discrimination on the basis of race, religion, sexual orientation and other criteria in line with the Human Rights Act. Education Minister George Abbott said a quarter of school districts have conduct codes that specifically refer to sexual orientation. Others, he said, believe it’s important not to elevate one type of bullying over another.

President’s Message Summer is almost here and your Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce has been working hard to bring some summer fun to our great town site. We have successfully partnered with the BIA and others to bring back the truck museum. We are again organizing (along with the Rotary Club) the 20th annual Golf Tourney at the Surrey Golf Club (which was just named the #1 golf course in Canada for the 5th year in a row, based on rounds played). This year every golfer will receive a pair of Callaway sunglasses valued at $150. This is a must-attend event that takes place on August 9th. Your Chamber has partnered with the South Surrey/ White Rock Chamber and the Surrey Board of Trade to continue our work from the Memorandum of Understanding and work towards forming the Surrey Business Alliance. This would create a collaborative platform for the City of Surrey and the business community to work as one to service every business in Surrey. — Brian Young

Eye-ing the Family Jewels BOAZ JOSEPH / BLACK PRESS

Cloverdale’s Tyson Post, 6, gets his picture taken with Nick and Sophie Tweed-Simmons at a meet-and-greet at Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino on Sunday. The Tweed-Simmons, son and daughter of Kiss member Gene Simmons and model Shannon Tweed, are stars of the reality-TV show Gene Simmons Family Jewels. Sophie was instrumental in the opening of Sophie’s Place, a centre for child victims of abuse (ages 0-12), located at the Centre for Child Development in North Surrey.

Seniors ranks grow By Jeff Nagel Seniors aged 65 and older now make up 13.5 per cent of Metro Vancouver’s population, according to new statistics from the 2011 census. That’s up from 12.2 per cent five years earlier and reflects the steady greying of the population as Baby Boomers begin to enter their golden years. The proportion of Metro seniors is projected to climb further to 17 per cent by 2021 and 21 per cent by 2031, driving major changes in demand for health care, housing and transit. In contrast, the proportion of children and teenagers in Metro Vancouver slipped from 24 per cent to 21.6 per cent from 2006 to 2011, according to the new data. That was despite what Urban Futures demographer Ryan Berlin called a mini baby boom around 2007 to 2009, when the economy was still going strong. Surrey, Langley Township, Maple Ridge and Port Moody are the youngest cities in the region, with at least a quarter of their population aged 19 or under. “A big driver is the availability of land and the type of housing being built,” Berlin said of the more suburban cities. “It’s conducive to younger couples and younger singles who are then having kids.” Seniors are most prevalent in White Rock (29.4 per cent), West Vancouver (25.5 per cent), South Delta and pockets of Vancouver such as Shaughnessey and Dunbar. Another factor is a trend of some young people to move out of Vancouver to the suburbs for school, work or more affordable housing, he added. Berlin said the overall trend toward an older population means cities must consider more programs for seniors, longer lights at crosswalks and the need for better public transit, including custom transit like HandyDart for those with mobility challenges. “This kind of stuff will become increasingly relevant,” he said. B.C. is also home to seven of Canada’s 10 oldest municipalities in terms of seniors population. They include Summerland, Parksville and Qualicum Beach, where nearly half the residents are seniors. The median age for Metro Vancouver was 40.2 in 2011, up from 37.4 in 2006. It would have gone up more, Berlin said, had it not been for the flow of younger people to the urban area – drawn for education, work or lifestyle – as well as immigrants. Both those groups have helped keep the number of working age people relatively stable in the region. B.C.’s median age was 41.9 years and seniors made up 15.7 per cent of the province’s population. Seniors make up more than 18 per cent of residents in Kelowna and Victoria. – Black Press

Try Maori Miracle® which contains 4 ingredients for healing and pain control. GlycoMarine® is an extract from the New Zealand green-lipped mussel. It contains 9 different glycosaminoglycans that serve as raw materials for joint healing. It also has Cox-2 inhibitory properties and is chondroprotective. Myristin® is a fatty acid ester that lubricates the joint and modulates immunity (hence beneficial for rheumatoid arthritis). Kolla-2® is another glycosaminoglycan from chicken cartilage. It replaces lost cartilage and joint fluid. Finally white willow bark is a time-honoured herbal anti-inflammatory agent. A homeopathic medicine called Zeel Compositum may be used as a catalytic activator. I have seen huge success with this combination.

Q

I have knee and hip pains from osteoarthritis. What is the best natural remedy?

We have been looking for a home to buy for a few weeks. We have been checking mls.ca on the internet and calling the agent each time we see a new listing we like. We are frustrated as these listings have offers by the time we get there. What should we do? You are wasting your time by calling each Realtor on every listing you are interested in. This will give you the attention of many Realtors who now know that you are looking to buy, but none of them will give you 100% of their effort because you have not made a commitment to them. Call one Realtor who specializes in the area you are interested in. They can show you every home, no matter who it is listed by. Have a meeting with the Realtor to discuss what you are looking for. Sign a buyer agency agreement with the Realtor and you will see that Realtor go to work for you. You can ask the Realtor to allow you to cancel the contract if, after a trial period, you are not happy with the service. You will see results.

MRS. KAREN BENNETT 5th Degree Black Belt

Q A

Why should I consider Taekwondo? Taekwondo is more than just kicking, punching and self-defense. Self-defense is definitely part of a good program however there are many other important benefits. Two big problems with our culture today are obesity and a lack of discipline and focus. The physical training in Taekwondo creates fit individuals through strength, coordination, flexibility and endurance training. At Cloverdale Black Belt Academy we frequently hear that our students are at the top of their class in physical fitness. Taekwondo training has structure and discipline where values like courtesy, respect, honour and loyalty are emphasized and expected. As instructors, we are very proud of our students. We often get comments on how courteous and respectful they are. The real question should be, “Why shouldn’t I give my child and myself the value, benefit and success that result from training in Taekwondo”.

To see what it is all about, inquire about our Summer Camp from July 23rd to the 27th. Cloverdale Black Belt Academy, "Making the World a Better Place, One Black Belt at a Time!”
