t was a dark, wet Tuesday night on Dec. 7, 2010, and Paul Thomson had just sat down at a computer at Semiahmoo House Society to surf the web. It was a regular evening routine for Paul, as he enjoyed the quiet time by himself. The last few years had been challenging for the lifelong Surrey resident. In October 2003, while driving home from work, vere Paul was overcome by a severe pain in his head. The details that followed remain a mystery to Paul, however, he remembers waking up in hospital and being told he had been involved in a car accident. While behind the wheel, Paul suffered an intracranial hemorrhage resulting in a build-up of blood in his skull that caused serious brain damage. He spent three months in a coma and seven months in hospital learning how to eat, walk and talk again. His battle back had been inspiring to many, but in recent years, Paul had become more withdrawn, and his physical and mental progress seemed to plateau. see page 4

A court appearance for a White Rock woman facing multiple dog-theft charges was short last week, but the presiding judge made sure to let opponents of Janet Olson know that disrespect for the legal process won’t be tolerated. Several attendees seated in the Surrey Provincial Court gallery Thursday wore white T-shirts with the phrase ‘Stealing pets is not rescue’ on the front and ‘Return our family members now’ on the back. Judge Ellen Gordon admonished them for their attire. “For those of you that ❝If you want are in here, the T-shirts to watch… don’t help,” Gordon come dressed said. “If you want to watch… come dressed like normal people.❞ like normal people.” Olson, founder of A Ellen Gordon Better Life Dog Rescue, Surrey judge was one of two women arrested in November in connection with what police described as “an elaborate dog-theft investigation” into allegations a rescue group was stealing dogs from backyards across the Lower Mainland. At the time, police said investigators observed Olson and co-accused Louise Reid enter a Coquitlam backyard and walk away with a bulldog named Samson. Olson – who has acknowledged she took Samson – was also charged with theft and fraud in connection with the alleged theft of a Jack Russell terrier in Surrey on April 13, 2011. Last month, following a flood of tips to police, several more charges were sworn against Olson, in connection with incidents between Nov. 14, 2009, and Dec. 21, 2011 in White Rock, Surrey, Richmond and Abbotsford. A Richmond woman, Michaela Schnittker, was also announced as facing charges. see page 2

House party ‘turns ugly’ “(The victims) were clearly engaged with the fight, but the group they were having a fight with took it up to another level, produced a knife,” Grainger said. Most party guests fled the scene when police arrived, including those involved in the fight. Grainger said the victims, one listed in serious condition the next day, are giving “minimal co-operation.” One is known to police for property-related offences. Alcohol was “absolutely” a factor, Grainger said. Police did not have suspect descriptions or know how many were involved in the fight. However, it was believed two strangers entered the suite and started the fight. Surrey’s Serious Crimes Unit is investigating.

An alcohol-fueled fight ended with two young men stabbed last week in Sullivan. Police say they responded shortly after 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, after a disturbance was reported in the 14500-block of 59B Avenue. Surrey Cpl. Drew Grainger said officers found two victims: a 21-year-old with several stab wounds to his upper torso, and a 17-year-old with one wound in his left arm. Investigation determined the wounds were the result of a fight that broke out amongst attendees of a house party in a rented basement suite. The scuffle spilled into the driveway, and turned ugly, Grainger said.

news Mayor confident White Rock has pay-parking authority: ‘I would wager my firstborn’
Ex-resident trolls for ticket as test case Alex Browne Staff Reporter
Is the City of White Rock legally justified in applying parking bylaws to BNSF property – the waterfront lots south of Marine Drive – and enforcing parking tickets for those who don’t pay? Former White Rock resident Paul LeMay, who recently received just such a ticket, is betting the city doesn’t have the legal authority, and he’s willing to take that bet to court as a test case. If he’s proven right, he said, the case could have far-reaching consequences for the city. “This could have a cascade effect,” LeMay said last week. “People could, en masse, stop paying (in the lots). And it’s a major source of revenue for the city.” Mayor Wayne Baldwin, however, said Monday that he is “absolutely” confident the city has the authority to issue such tickets. “If I were him, I wouldn’t waste my money on a lawyer,” Baldwin said. “How confident am I? I would wager my firstborn on it.”
LeMay’s case will hinge on some definitive wonder if the city actually had the authority rulings about the status of the land owned to write tickets on that property, and maybe by Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, that’s why nothing happens.” he acknowledges. He believes it falls under The next day he called the city and told a federal jurisdiction because the BNSF is a representative of the bylaws department that railway, while the city operates under the he was going to contest the ticket in court. “The person I talked to said, ‘but White authority of a provincial statute.

The retired LeMay noted he is not a lawyer, but that he has had some experience of law in a career in Ottawa that included being a special assistant to Sen. Sheila Finestone and working for the occupational health and safety section of Human Resources Development Canada. That, he said, leads him to believe enforcing city parking bylaws within the lots could be ruled ‘ultra vires’ – or beyond the power – of the city government. He believes that the land use is comparable with private parking lots in the City of Vancouver, where parking is a contractual agreement with a private entity, or First Nations land, which falls under federal jurisdiction rather than local government bylaws. And he’d like to see a definitive of the property line between BNSF and city property. “This is a test of law and some of the finer points of law,” LeMay said. “I’m actually doing the City of White Rock a favour.” If it were found that the city doesn’t have the authority to write tickets in the lots, LeMay noted, “it could be open season down there.”
Polite call for dog park
Not ready to just roll over Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

About a dozen owners and their dogs join organizer Eva Hompoth (far right) and Lola at White Rock City Hall Sunday for a polite protest.
A small group of dog owners took their well-behaved pets for a walk around White Rock City Hall Sunday afternoon. It was a polite protest against the ban forbidding dogs on the city’s seaside promenade and an equally polite call for a dog park. “We are going to have a friendly walk with the dogs on a leash so that we can show that people and dogs can get along together,” said organizer Eva Hompoth, who arrived with Lola, a handsomelooking mid-sized canine with an affectionate disposition. “We would like to have a little dog park if it’s possible,” Hompoth added. “I know White Rock is a small community but it would be nice to have a little dog park (because there are) a lot of people who don’t drive like me, and it’s really hard to socialize dogs without having that facility.” About a dozen dogs and their owners took part in the event.
Vancouver police: ‘This is not about those who stood around and watched the riot’
Charges urged against more accused rioters Jeff Nagel Black Press
Charges are being urged against another 25 suspected rioters for violent acts during the mayhem downtown that followed the Vancouver Canucks’ defeat in last June’s Stanley Cup final. The additional 70 charges recommended by Vancouver Police must still be approved by prosecutors. The VPD have now sought charges against a total of 125 accused rioters and 47 have actually been charged so far. One recommendation was rejected by Crown while the rest
are under review. “These are all serious criminal offences,” Insp. Les Yeo said of the latest files forwarded to prosecutors. In each case, he said, the suspected rioters either destroyed property, looted businesses, started fires or assaulted innocent bystanders. “This is not about those who stood around and watched the riot,” Yeo said. More than 80 per cent of the suspects for whom charges are recommended are from outside Vancouver.
The 25 latest suspects police want charged include an 18-year-old from Richmond who allegedly tried to smash the windows of a police car before helping others to flip it. A Burnaby 18-year-old allegedly first tried to smash a car’s windshield before stuffing a rag into the gas tank of a Hummer. “To the disbelief of investigators, he approached onlookers for a lighter and tried to light this rag while the crowd stood around and watched,” according to the VPD. A 23-year-old from Surrey is also facing charges in the swarming
assault of Robert Mackay, a Vancouver man who was badly beaten after trying to keep looters from entering a store. The Surrey man, who faces two mischief counts and charges of assault, participating in a riot and breach of an undertaking, was in violation of his bail conditions for a previous Surrey robbery at the time of the riot. Three of six suspects who attacked Mackay have now been identified, Yeo said. Three more people turned themselves in to police after their images
were displayed on a revamped VPD riot website launched last month. Yeo also requested public help in finding the rioter who threw a fivepound brick that hit and injured VPD Const. Mike Laurin outside SportChek on Howe Street on the night of the riot. A video of the incident can be viewed at riot2011.vpd.ca Laurin received 14 stitches, a serious concussion and was off work for three months. “Somebody knows something,” Yeo said. “Somebody was with that person and can tell us.”

Dennis Back comes to White Rock with a “great deal of experience,” says Mayor Wayne Baldwin.
Search begins for new city manager
Good start for acting CAO Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter
my interest… is to find that person as soon as possible.” In introducing Back to the public during the Feb. 6 council meeting, Mayor Wayne Baldwin lauded Back’s qualifications, which he said also include stints in Powell River and Oliver. “He comes to us with a great deal of experience,” Baldwin said. In his first five days on the job, the North Vancouver resident toured several city facilities, and met with senior staff and other city employees. He said he was impressed with everything and everyone. “We’ve got a lot of really hardworking folks on staff here with the city, all trying to do a good job,” he said. “Is there work to be done? Well, of course, there always
White Rock’s acting city manager is no stranger to jumping feet first into unfamiliar municipal surroundings. Dennis Back has done the same thing from Squamish to Penticton since retiring as manager for the District of North Vancouver three years ago. “This is my third stint at this,” Back said last week, on his sixth day in the local chair. “It’s the same business, different place. I kind of know what the questions are to ask.” Back, 59, stepped into the local interim role Feb. 1, following the Dec. 20 resignation of Peggy Clark, who had held it since 2006. Prior to Back’s arrival, financial services director Sandra Kurylo filled the position on a temporary basis. Hired on a four-month contract, Back said he’s in White Rock to ensure day-to-day operations run smoothly, to work through the budget – and to see through the process of recruiting a new Bring city manager. “I have to and I am flexible in terms of how long I’m here,” he said. “But
is and there’ll always be challenges. That’s normal in this line of work.” While Back wouldn’t highlight any specific areas as catching his eye for needing attention, he said what he did notice was “nothing serious, that’s for sure.” He described the city’s unique position of having zero longterm debt as “pretty incredible.” “The finances have been wellmanaged in the past,” Back said. Less unique is the fact White Rock’s wish list exceeds the city’s available resources. Asked if the issue of White Rock remaining independent has come up, Back said he did ask questions on the matter, given that Surrey surrounds the seaside city. He said he’s been assured the idea isn’t on the table.

There’s no limit on love
very once in a while, a story comes along that is a welcome break from the crime and tragic crashes, the fatalities and fires, the relentless milieu of man’s inhumanity to man. Every once in a while a story comes along that reminds you to be grateful for the things you usually take for granted – a place to live, your health, the people that you love, and more importantly, the folks who love you. Appropriately, just in time for Valentine’s Day, the tale of Paul Thomson and Carla Henderson fits the bill. In 2003, while behind the wheel of his car, Paul suffered an intracranial hemorrhage, resulting in serious brain damage. He spent three months in a coma and seven months in hospital learning how to eat, walk and talk again. While he has made remarkable progress over the years, today, at 48 years old, he is unable to live or work independently. Lately, life had become... a little lonely. Carla experienced a similar struggle to survive. In 1993, when Carla was just 15, she and her two sisters were in a car accident that killed Carla’s sister Tricia, 20, and injured her other sister Krista, 18. Carla suffered a severe head injury. She spent 22 months in hospital – much of the time with a feeding tube and ventilator keeping her alive. She was told she would never walk, talk or breathe on her own. As Carla, now 34, says, “I showed them.” She resides in an assisted-living home and is working on learning to walk again. With all the challenges that people with brain injuries face – physical and cognitive disabilities; finding appropriate living arrangements; limited incomes – finding love must seem out of reach. That’s what Paul and Carla thought – until they met each other at a brain injury support group at Semiahmoo House Society. It was an instant mutual attraction, and caregivers say Paul and Carla have blossomed amid their devotion to one another. Today – if Carla says yes to Paul’s proposal – they will become betrothed. And thanks to José Latchinian, owner of José and Company Custom Jewellers in South Surrey, Paul will have a stunning gold and diamond band to slip on Carla’s finger – a gift Paul never dreamed he could afford. Jose sold the $1,500 ring to Paul for what Paul’s budget allowed: $300. Overcoming tremendous personal hardship. Love at first sight. And a generous business owner who says he’s honoured to donate an expensive ring so a couple challenged by adversity can get engaged in style. Now that’s our kind of story.

So far this week you’ve said… yes 46% no 54% 164 responding Vancouver Island. Most are aboriginal partnerships. Energy Minister Rich Coleman told me no contracts will be cancelled, and he rejected my suggestion that BC Hydro could end up with too much power in the wrong places and at the wrong time of year. BC Hydro can move power around as well as store it, and that will improve when the smart grid is completed. Independent power doesn’t end there. It shifts to northern B.C., where three liquefied natural gas projects will need output equivalent to 2½ Site C dams to operate. Coleman said that at least one modern gas-fired power plant will be needed to develop LNG, which is expected to be in business before Site C could be built. That powerhouse will likely be built by the LNG developers, and used to back up new intermittent sources of offshore and land-based wind and any river or geothermal sites available along a new northwest power line. B.C. will likely have a second gas-fired power plant in the northeast corner, to supply the Horn River shale gas development and processing plant now underway. Coleman says that plant should be able to capture carbon dioxide and sequester it deep underground. Fort Nelson and points north will remain off the BC Hydro grid. Even with carbon capture in the northeast, Campbell’s greenhouse gas targets look to be the next part of his legacy to be abandoned.

Not the place for pooches Editor: Re: No support for dogs on the promenade, Feb. 9. I was glad to see the lack of support from council for the “dogs on the promenade” proposal put forward by DOG White Rock. This issue comes and goes every year, and I really wish it would just go away, but I realize that is probably wishful thinking. I know there are a lot of dog owners who would love nothing better than to take their dog on the promenade but it is against the law. The previous weekend, some friends came out from Vancouver and we took them and their dog to Crescent Beach. We went to the off-leash dog park and the dog had a blast. He experienced the ocean for the first time – not overly impressed, I’m afraid. The point is that we took him where it was legal for dogs. Dogs are not allowed on the promenade. Repeat – for those unclear on the concept – dogs are not allowed on the promenade! What we really need now is bylaw enforcement officers who actually enforce the bylaws. Time and time again, my wife and I are on the promenade and sure as heck there are at least two or three people just ignoring all the signage and walking their dogs as if they have some special privileges. Where are the bylaw officers? In the parking lot, of course, nabbing evil tourists who have gone over their time by five minutes – and who contribute largely to our tax base. I know the City of White Rock hired bylaw enforcement officers last year. I would really like the city to provide direction to the same officers to enforce the bylaws and keep the dogs off the promenade. Bill Stockdale, White Rock Q There is a move afoot to change the White Rock bylaw regarding dogs on the promenade. Those in favour of this also complain about the lack of a dog park in the city of White Rock. This may be fact, but just how difficult would it be for those so concerned to load Fido into their cars and take them to the dog parks located very conveniently in South Surrey? There’s one on 20 Avenue around 136 Street and one at Blackie Spit in Crescent Beach. I love my dog – a golden retriever – and I do not allow him to chase waterfowl, leap up onto people or steal their snacks, as they sit on the benches at Blackie Spit. Nor do I leave a pile of his poop for someone to tread on, no matter where I walk him. However, as any observant dog walker can see, there are a lot of people who will not pick up after their dogs, and I see this as the number 1 reason that I would not want to see dogs on the promenade at White Rock. There are just too many lazy, inconsiderate slobs out there, all of whom will flock to the promenade with their excrement-
spewing pets as soon as the bylaw is lifted. I walk down there daily, without my dog, and I have seen dog waste left lying on the brick walkway on numerous occasions, by people ignorant of the bylaw and just plain ignorant. If anyone thinks the bylaw officers would keep this situation under control, think again. In the morning hours, when I often see scofflaws strolling with Fido down there, there is never a bylaw officer to be seen on the whole two-kilometre
length of the promenade. This idea needs to be thrown out of council debate. Forest McCready, Surrey
We’re looking for a sign Editor: We’ve been living in a beautiful townhome complex where we purchased a unit a few years ago in
Morgan Heights. Due to changes in our lives, we’re now wanting to sell and purchase an acreage instead. The thing is, it’s strata here, and the council made a decision recently that no for-sale signs are to be posted outside the front of the complex, as they feel they are unsightly. They opted instead for a small sign to be posted that would then direct potential buyers inside the complex, to the mail box area to read any notices re: units for sale. Fine, but… so far they haven’t posted that little sign, and for several months now have been diligently removing the real-estate signs and hiding them behind a building within the complex. How are we to advertise and lure prospective buyers to our lovely home when they are cruising the neighbourhood looking for a new place to live? Not everyone is on the Internet and reading MLS. Our agent did receive permission from our strata management company to place her sign out front until such time as the small directional sign is posted, but that has made no difference – her sign is removed on a daily basis, and then later found by us and replaced again. Today though, it has apparently been stolen completely! If you hear of anyone looking for a four-bedroom, 3,700-square-foot home in this area, here we are! (I’ll be speaking with our agent about placing an ad in your paper also :)) Gwen McKillican, Surrey

A police incident in Kelowna results from Surrey students carrying toy guns.
A big contradiction Editor: Re: Teenagers’ toy guns turn into big to-do, Feb. 7. This was reported in the Vancouver Sun with the final line of that article being: “RCMP say altering toy guns is a serious offence. The teens were released without charges.” The Peace Arch News wording is: “They seized the two replicas and the team was subsequently released without charges.” My reply to this was: “Huh?” Am I the only one to see a big contradiction here? A serious offence, but no charges? Nice message we’re sending to these teens. And there was a chaperone with a mock pistol? Surely, she was not one of the always-too-easily-forgiven young offenders! Imagine if one of those teens had pointed a gun at an officer and given the impression that he intended to use it. And what if the officer felt he had no choice but to defend himself? A senseless
shooting, another big inquiry, another round of finger-pointing, more cries of police brutality, etc. And to the school district, please, you should know better than to once again blame “society” – i.e. the stores that sell these guns – for the idiocy of these people. Do we then tell housewares stores to stop selling knives or even costume or prop stores to stop selling replica knives? Must sporting goods stores stop selling bats? Or do we take tire irons off the market? These are all common “weapons” of choice. Need I go on? How about just convincing people through education and law enforcement that a crime’s a crime and commission of such will have swift, strict, just and, it is hoped, deterring consequences. Here was a chance to send a very strong message about the illicit and downright stupid use of a toy and, once again, the justice system fails. Let’s hope there will at least be some serious repercussions at the school level. G. Harrison, White Rock
Editor: I just wanted to say thank you to “Pauline and Bob,” who left a bottle of wine on my doorstep this morning with a lovely note. A couple months ago, I heard rummaging in my front yard quite late in the evening. After bursting out my front door to confront the troublemakers or raccoons responsible for the noise, I saw a somewhat frightened lady looking for pop bottles in my recyclables. I apologized for bursting out; she apologized for being in the yard. I mentioned my house was broken into last year so I was a little jumpy. I went back inside and gave the woman two garbage bags of pop bottles I had been saving up for my next trip. She told me she and her husband made wine, and could bring me a bottle as thanks. I said it wouldn’t be necessary, as clearing out my recyclables was favour enough. It was a very pleasant surprise to see a bottle of wine on the doorstep as I was leaving for work this morning. I have no way of contacting Pauline or Bob to thank them personally, but when I shared this story on my Facebook page it seemed to make people smile, so I thought I would share it with you as well.

Grandmothers group aims to bring smiles to strangers
Small acts, big reward Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter
magining their plans to spend a week surprising people with kindness, Penny Cuddy and Debbie Riopel couldnâ€™t conceal their glee. Armed with a basket of cone-shaped packets of hot chocolate and small candies tied to heartfelt messages with colourful yarn, the pair beamed as they shared their goals for Random Acts of Kindness Week. â€œWeâ€™re hoping that it will trigger lots of little acts and goodwill,â€? said Cuddy, of a seven-day effort that was to take to the streets of White Rock and South Surrey Monday (Feb. 13). â€œIt isnâ€™t a great effort for the returns that weâ€™ll get.â€? Riopel and Cuddy are among about 45 members of the South Surrey/White Rock Debbie Riopel Oneness Gogos â€“ Oneness Gogos grandmothers who advocate and fundraise in support of grandmothers in subSaharan Africa who are caring for their orphaned grandchildren. About 240 similar groups exist across Canada. Since forming four years ago, the local groupâ€™s efforts have raised more than $100,000 for the Stephen Lewis Foundationâ€™s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign â€“ all funds that help the African grandmothers with basics such as food, housing and school fees for their grandchildren. Thanking the community for supporting those efforts was a big part of the motivation for developing the strategy that is playing out this week. â€œWhen you see that figure, the bar is set very high,â€? group president Donna McBride said. â€œThe whole point is, we
Tracy Holmes photos
Members of the South Surrey/White Rock Oneness Gogos (above, and right) prepare goodies (below) to hand out during Random Acts of Kindness Week, Feb. 13-19. want to say thank you to the community, who really support us in every wayâ€Ś just telling us to keep going.â€? Each day through Feb. 19, members of the Gogos are dividing into smaller groups and delivering surprise thankyous to businesses and organizations that have offered support over the years. Along the way, theyâ€™ll spread the kindness to others, from people they pass on the street, to those they bump into in local
stores. While marking the week is new to the local Gogos as a whole, Riopel is decidedly more familiar with it. She and her sister Colleen Ring were among the first co-ordinators of Random Acts of Kindness Week in Canada. The pair got it rolling in Alberta, following the 1994 murder of a young mother in Edmonton. Ring, a teacher, was searching for a way to a way to help her young students understand and cope with the tragedy when she was alerted to the U.S.-based effort. â€œSt. Albert was the first (Canadian) city to proclaim,â€? Riopel said. â€œDozens of cities followed after.â€? Riopel described Random Acts of Kindness Week as â€œa great reminder for the public that they can feel empowered practising little bits of kindness.â€? â€œEven a smile can make a difference.â€? Itâ€™s about â€œrecognizing that little things can make a difference, sometimes a big one,â€? Cuddy said.

Principal honoured for work White Rock Elementary principal Frances Fagan is one of two Surrey School District principals have received national recognition in the Learning Partnership’s listing of Canada’s outstanding principals. Both she and Yrsa Jensen, principal of Hillcrest Elein Frances Fagan mentary Clayton, have principal both been honoured for exceptional leadership in the organization’s 2012 awards, and will join the National Academy of Canada’s Outstanding Principals in a ceremony Feb. 28 in Toronto. The listing, which recognizes multiple principals for each province, comes as the result of an extensive selection process including nomination by peers, school staff and community members. District communications manager Doug Strachan said such a national honour for Fagan and Jensen “reflects very well on the school district.” “We’re proud of these principals, and proud that the school communities they serve can share in their accomplishments,” he said.

business Entrepreneur making a mark in a green world
A real growing trend Sarah Massah
n Ocean Park business owner has transformed his company’s hydroponic technology to appease an appetite for a different kind of green. Tarren Wolfe, owner of Urban Cultivator, has taken the company in a new direction from being one of B.C.’s go-to suppliers of marijuana-growing equipment to stocking up the province’s most posh restaurants with micro-greens, arugula and other lettuces. “We had been making a similar line for about 12 years and then a couple of years ago we decided to do one that would be more geared towards micro-greens and classic herbs,” he said. And while his BC Northern Lights company – winner of High Times’ Stash Award – is one that may raise a few eyebrows, Wolfe explains that like any business-savvy entrepreneur, he and his partners satiated a need in the market. “Growing up in Kelowna, we knew people who were growing (marijuana) and we knew there was a market that needed to be

Using the technology from his previous venture, Wolfe and his business partners created Urban Cultivator’s computercontrolled hydroponic growing system at a time when demand for local, organic ingredients is at an all-time high. The products, including seeds and a how-to guide, come in two sizes – one for commercial use and the other for
residential use – and are meant to just “set it and forget.” In Metro Vancouver alone, the company has sold products to some of the region’s top restaurants, including Burnaby’s Pear Tree, C in Vancouver and restaurants in the Four Seasons hotel chain, including Yew in Vancouver and Sidecut in Whistler – which was the company’s first customer. “Chef Tory was our first customer and a real pioneer. It’s been a real blessing to have a first customer like that,” said Wolfe, about Sidecut’s head chef. “We were looking for the people who obviously wanted to use it, and there are many.” The increasing demand is a point that was not lost on the business moguls who
make up the panel of CBC’s entrepreneurial reality show, Dragon’s Den. While presenting the product on the episode that aired Jan. 25, three of the panel members quickly made offers to swap services for a portion of the business. But it was marketing maven Arlene Dickinson who sealed the deal with an exchange of 20 per cent of the company for $400,000, after the other two rescinded their offers. Although the help of Dickinson will be a huge boost, just being on the show was enough to raise their status, Wolfe said. “We got a lot of free eyeballs. There are two million viewers who watch that show a night, so it’s awesome marketing,” he said. In fact, Wolfe says he has been approached by four teachers applying for grants to have the equipment as teachers’-aid products. “With their help we’re producing a curriculum and pitching to the school boards,” said Wolfe. “It will teach kids basically how to grow and give them the basic knowledge.” If all goes well, Wolfe says he believes that herbs and greens grown by schools will generate revenue, which can then be put back into the classroom. Although Wolfe says the company’s goal is to go global – they have received offers and inquiries from more than 40 different countries – there are still big plans for right here in Metro Vancouver. The company will be opening up the first living-produce aisle sometime in March, in downtown Vancouver’s Nicli Antica Pizzeria – which goes through $2,000 worth of basil and arugula a month – exchanging four of the commercial-sized cultivators for the space. “It will get people to come in and they can see the produce right in front of them,” Wolfe said.

news Surrey seeks funds from provinceâ€™s civil forfeiture program
Crime could pay for Sophieâ€™s Place Kevin Diakiw Black Press
Surrey wants some of the money obtained by the province through proceeds of crime legislation to pay for two local initiatives. Surrey is applying for grants under a provincial civil forfeiture program to pay for a child advocacy centre called Sophieâ€™s Place and the cityâ€™s wire theft reduction program. Sophieâ€™s Place was just launched this month by Sophie Tweed-Simmons, the daughter of KISS frontman Gene Simmons and Playboy playmate Shannon Tweed. The wire-theft program is designed to cut down on the $2.5 million worth of wire stolen in Surrey last year.
The money Surrey is after comes under the Civil Forfeitures Program, where the province can seize assets that have been used during criminal acts. Most recently, the province sold a Lamborghini that was allegedly used in street racing along Highway 99. It was among 13 vehicles impounded Aug. 31, following reports that a number of high-end cars were speeding down the highway. The vehicles were pulled over in South Surrey and White Rock. Surrey is planning to apply for some of the money the province has made from that, and similar sales of suspected criminal assets. The civil forfeiture program has been
under way since 2006. The funds are put in reserve to support local governments for local programs targeting crime. Since its inception, the forfeiture office has distributed $1.5 million to local government from its seizure of assets. A staff report to council indicates Surrey has been in discussion with the Civil Forfeiture Office (CFO) for some time, as the city looked for projects that might be suitable for a grant. The CFO told Surrey it might get support for Sophieâ€™s Place and the wire theft program, the staff report said. In past years, the CFO has distributed grants of $25,000 to $40,000, but has recently indicated it was considering increasing that amount.

Triplex vote up
Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter
Encouraged by guidelines that will require triplex housing to provide at least two parking spots per suite, restricts their size and where they go, White Rock councillors have given preliminary approval to a new policy that would permit
construction of three-unit residential housing projects in the city. A final council vote is scheduled for Feb. 20. Paul Stanton, the city’s director of planning and development services, said last month that the triplex regulations will require owners to provide two off-street parking spots for every unit.
“What we’re trying to do is not increase the onstreet parking problems we already have,” he said. The overall size of a triplex can’t be any bigger than the duplexes already permitted under city bylaws, and the triplexes must be built in areas where multiple-family dwellings already exist. - with files from Tracy Holmes

People want good family counsel in whom they will have conÀdence. They want to deal personally with their own lawyer. They want to be heard, to get ‘straight’ advice and timely, effective service at a reasonable cost. And, it helps if it is close by. From simple divorces to principled negotiations and agreements, from Supreme Court Chambers and Trial work, to the Court of Appeal, I provide a complete package of legal experience and expertise, as may be required by the needs of my clients. The importance of obtaining independent legal advice upon marital breakdown cannot be over-emphasized. A negotiated agreement is always the optimal objective.

It’s a life-and-death contest among the celebrities for the title of Canada’s Greatest Explorer, which will be decided by a final audience vote. The show runs about 45 minutes and children are encouraged to bring a cushion to sit on, and to also ask questions of the performers after the show.

The White Rock Players’ Club presents
IN WHITE ROCK at the beautiful Coast Capital Playhouse
First show of the year in the current White Rock Players Club season at Coast Capital Playhouse (1532 Johnston Rd.) is Norm Foster’s Drinking Alone, directed by Susanne de Pencier, running until Feb 25. Relying on the old standby of playwriting – the family reunion – Foster’s situation comedy centres on the uneasy meeting of two adult children with their longestranged father Ivan (Roger Currie), with new wife, Phyllis (Sheila Keating) in tow, after 15 years of virtually no contact. The daughter, Carrie (Sarah Green) an apparently successful TV news reader, is teetering on the edge of being an alcoholic, just like the mother to whose not-so-tender mercies their father abandoned them. The son, Joe (Terry Thomas) is an unambitious man who runs the family’s moribund drycleaning business. In an attempt to convince his father he’s not a loser, he hires an escort, Renee (Vanessa Klein), to masquerade as his fiancee. Evening performances are at 8 p.m. Wednesday to Saturday, with a 2:30 p.m. matinee Sunday, Feb. 19.
Traditional jazz The White Rock Traditional Jazz Society’s series of Sunday afternoon Dixieland-style live music and dance sessions (3 to 6 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion Crescent Branch 240, 2643 128 St.) continue each week until the summer. Admission is $8 for members, $10 for non members. For more information, visit www.whiterocktradjazz.com

Eagles’ Brett Mulcahy gets away from Clippers’ Ryan Wells on Wednesday.
Just a few days after head coach Matt Erhart declared that his team had been having trouble finishing off opponents in overtime, the Surrey Eagles went out and proved otherwise. Erhart’s Eagles – who had lost its last four OT contests, dating back to mid-January – won two overtime games last week, and added another win in regulation, and now sit alone in top spot in the BC Hockey League’s Coastal Conference. On Wednesday in Nanaimo, Brayden Jaw scored the overtime winner to boost the Birds to a 4-3 win over the Clippers, and Friday at South Surrey Arena, the Eagles

HAWTHORNE - Therese Marie
CAIN, Wilfred John Anthony (Bill) June 13, 1938 - Feb. 6, 2012
It is with great sadness that we say goodbye too early to our dear husband, dad, brother, uncle and friend. Bill died suddenly at home, in South Surrey, BC. Bill was an active man of many and various interests and talents. He loved horses, and rode often as a youth on his family’s ranch at Bragg Creek near Calgary. He was a lover of Shakespearean books and plays, wrote poems and collected anecdotes, stories and jokes whenever and wherever he could. He was a master of bridge and card games of all sorts. Bill was an all-round sports enthusiast. He played baseball, football and hockey, loved skiing, and coached soccer for many years at the high school level, played golf into retirement, and rounded out his retirement by competing in several BC Senior Games, trying a myriad of sports - softball, track and field, cycling, mountain biking, and pickle ball. Bill is survived by his loving wife Sheila, daughter Catherine Higginson (Gordon), son Anthony (Audra), 7 grandchildren, brothers Gary, Doran, Darrell (Carol), Gerry (Lynn), John, sister Madonna Dyson (Russ),sisterin-law Eleanor Hodgins, and 16 nieces and nephews, 19 grand nieces and nephews, and his dog Beni. A funeral Mass will be held at Good Shepherd Catholic Church, 2250-150th St, Surrey on February 14th at 1:30pm followed by a reception in the church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
Therese Marie Leone Hawthorne, 90 years old, passed away peacefully, at Evergreen Baptist Care Home, on February 10, 2012.

She met and married the late Victor Hawthorne on July 20, 1946 at St. Patrick’s Church, Vancouver B.C. Terrie spent many years nursing at St. Vincent’s and Royal Columbian hospital and raising four children. In later years, she was devoted to bringing communion to the sick and shut ins. Terrie is survived by her four children Dennis Hawthorne (Sharon), (Norma), Gerry Hawthorne (Cindy), Julie Lorieau (Henri), Shelley Slanisky (David). She is also survived by fourteen grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. We would like to thank the staff of Evergreen, for their exceptional care of our mother.
