Hero plumber frees kitten

School safety urged

Purrfect rescue

40 km/h floated for city

Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

Plumber David Radey discovered a new use for his sewer camera Thursday afternoon in White Rock. It turns out the snake-like video device the Pitt Meadows resident uses to inspect pipes from the inside is also handy for locating a lost kitten after it falls down a furnace vent. Suzanne Burke was cat-sitting threemonth-old Timbit for her father, Sonny Burke, when the curious calico kitten managed to lift up a vent cover early Thursday morning and fall inside. Burke could hear the cat’s panicked wailing, but couldn’t reach her. After several plumbing companies turned her down, Milani Plumbing in Burnaby sent out Radey, a cat owner himself, who told Burke and her father that he didn’t plan to leave without finding Timbit. It took about seven hours of drilling holes and cutting plasterboard before Radey located the cat in the ceiling of the antique store underneath Burke’s Johnston Road apartment. When Timbit’s face suddenly popped up on the sewer camera video monitor, Burke gasped and started calling the kitten. That – and a tin of cat food – was enough to lure the kitty close enough to the entry hole for Radey to pull her out uninjured and present Timbit to Burke and her father. “I’m ridiculously happy,” a grateful Suzanne Burke said. It was the first time Radey’s ever been involved in extricating a trapped cat, though he said he may amend his resumé to include “cat retrieval” on his list of skills.

Parents of students attending Peace Arch Elementary are concerned about the safety of children walking to school, and want better enforcement of the area’s speed limit, White Rock council has heard. And while the politicians gave unanimous support to having staff review the matter and report back – including on a suggestion by Coun. Grant Meyer to implement a citywide speed limit of 40 km/h – at least two noted the worst offenders are often the parents themselves. “We need to educate the parents,” Coun. Al Campbell said, citing incidents of the roadway being blocked by parents dropping off their children. Area resident Ron Eves appeared as a delegation June 25 to present a three-page petition to council. Signed largely by parents, it calls for “better and more substantial police presence to enforce speeding/pedestrian safety in and around École Peace Arch Elementary.” Explaining he was spurred to act after witnessing a number of close calls at nearby intersections involving pedestrians, Eves said he discovered parents at the Roper Avenue school are similarly worried. “The parents noted that drivers are failing to yield… and that vehicles are speeding excessively,” Eves said. He added that ICBC statistics on speed enforcement in the area point to minimal police attention to the matter in recent years. Coun. Helen Fathers – whose daughter attends the school – echoed the safety concerns. “It’s become an absolute nightmare down there,” she said. Coun. Larry Robinson said speeding has surpassed other highprofile concerns – such as those around dogs – to become the city’s number-one issue.  see page 4

Alex Browne Arts Reporter

A city-sponsored open house and community forum on arts, culture and the economy June 27 at White Rock Community Centre was sparsely-attended. But the 30 who participated in the forum segment produced good discussion, according to Mayor Wayne Baldwin. “The ideas were good, really good,” Baldwin said following the event, noting contributions from artist and arts advocate Chris MacClure and an impassioned statement from Semiahmoo First Nation Counc. Joanne Charles about the importance of First Nations art. Noting fewer numbers than at previous forums on the topic, Baldwin described the input as “more focused and more specialized” than the other events. “I would not have expected the same turnout,” he said. The open house also resulted in the distribution of a city survey seeking input specifically on ways in which the arts and culture can benefit White Rock’s economy. “We’ve had a lot come back from it, and the survey can still be completed by residents online until July 9,” said city clerk Tracey Arthur. She said the intention of the open house was to enhance information gathered for the city for the Arts and Culture Mapping Project by Deirdre Goudriaan

Healthy Communities, which included an initial discussion on arts and culture in 2010, interviews with arts stakeholders and a series of arts and culture ‘cafés’ last year. “That was done a while ago and the new council felt it needed more direction and would reach out to the public. All of the information (in Goudriaan’s reports) will be considered and brought forward.” Forum facilitator Judy McLeod’s report to the city’s Arts Economic Task Force is expected this fall, Baldwin said. “It will probably be part of our discussion of strategic goals for next year,” he added.

news Fisheries collapse predicted should species be wiped out

Activists hope shark-fin attack has teeth Jeff Nagel Black Press

U.S. agent counts confiscated fins.

A campaign to stamp out the use of shark fins by Chinese restaurants is quickly gaining steam across Metro Vancouver. Activists have already persuaded Coquitlam, Port Moody and the City of North Vancouver to ban the possession and use of the fins and Burnaby is expected to follow suit. Now Vancouver Animal Defence League spokesman Anthony Marr is preparing to go after Surrey, Vancouver and Richmond – cities home to many of the Metro restaurants that serve shark fin soup. “They’re going down like dominoes,” Marr said of the cities signing on. “It’s going pretty strong.” Seven cities in Ontario, including Toronto, have agreed to bans, but B.C. is the big prize. By getting smaller communities on board first, Marr hopes to convince councils of the bigger Metro cities to simultaneously sign on to a ban and defuse concerns that affected restaurateurs will flee Vancouver for Richmond or vice versa.

Alex Davie disputes the City of Surrey’s suggestion that there is enough room for two-way residential traffic in a chicane installed on 2 Avenue.

Resident critical of city’s fix to U.S.-border queue jumpers

S-curve ‘no solution’ in South Surrey Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

An attempt to discourage queue-jumping at the Pacific Highway border crossing in South Surrey is only going to cause more fenderbenders, says a critic of the chicane currently under construction on 2 Avenue. Resident Alex Davie says the attempt to deliberately create a bottleneck by building a sharp s-curve along 2 Avenue near 175A Street doesn’t leave enough room for cars to safely share the road. Davie is a retired Surrey firefighter who says he bases his opinion on his own experience navigating large vehicles through city streets. “I was told (by a staffer in the City of Surrey engineering department) that the road was 18 feet wide and that was enough,” he said. “I told him, bring your car down and I’ll bring mine and we’ll try it. We will side-swipe each other.” City of Surrey transport planning manager

Philip Bellefontaine maintains the chicane has enough room for two regular-sized cars to pass in opposite directions without colliding. “We don’t anticipate side-swipes happening,” Bellefontaine told Peace Arch News Thursday. “It’s low (numbers of) vehicles and slow speeds.” Bellefontaine said once the chicane is completed, it will have a centre-line marker to help keep the lanes and vehicles separated. City records show the chicane was not the first choice, either of local residents or experts who prepared a report on the potential impact of queue-jumping in advance of planned new housing in the Douglas neighbourhood. A 1999 staff report to council shows residents told the city the ideal solution would be to close off 2 Avenue access to the highway leading to the U.S. border, once construction of a new subdivision got underway. But when business owners in the area objected, the chicane was adopted as an “acceptable”

alternative, according to the report’s author, engineer Jamie Umpleby. In 2007, the issue was revisited in a consultant’s report that said the best solution to the queue-jumping problem would be to close 2 Avenue. The report, by T.J. Ward Consulting Group, recommended that “some sort of alignment shift be considered to discourage such traffic,” while acknowledging “it appears to be too late to achieve this configuration,” an apparent reference to the business objections. As a result, the Ward report calls for a chicane that would “permit passenger vehicles to pass through it but not commercial vehicles.” Davie said that while queue-jumpers are evident, the chicane won’t stop the small vehicles that create most of that kind of traffic. “On Sundays, it’s like rush hour.” He said most residents would still prefer to have the road realigned to prevent access from 2 Avenue to the border lineup.

Nansy Saad is suing a fast-food restaurant after allegedly receiving serious burns from coffee spilled on her by an attendant at McDonald’s. Last November, the Surrey resident was at a drive-thru at at 64 Avenue and King George Boulevard ordering a coffee. Saad says in her statement of claim filed in B.C. Supreme Court on June 6 that the attendant failed to affix the lid properly on the cup. In the process of handing her the coffee, the hot liquid spilled on her, burning her thighs, genitals and abdomen, according to the statement of claim. The claim also asserts she suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and body dysmorphic disorder (a mental condition that causes an obsession with body image or a disfigurement). None of Saad’s claims have been proven in court and McDonald’s has yet to file a legal response. The lawsuit is reminiscent of one launched by Stella Liebeck, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, who spilled coffee on herself and sued McDonald’s in 1992. She had initially requested a settlement of $20,000, but the restaurant refused, offering her $800. She went to court, where it was determined the coffee was too hot (between 180 and 190 degrees Farenheit). She was awarded $160,000 in damages and $2.7 million in punitive damages.

Parents ‘99.9 per cent of problem’  from page 1 Robinson suggested a committee be formed to look at the bigger picture. Putting police on every corner is not an option, he said. Meyer noted his citywide speed limit suggestion is not intended to increase the limit in park and school zones; North Bluff and Stayte Roads should also be excluded, he said. Campbell, however, said congestion around the school, not speed, is the bigger issue. And, it’s getting worse. “I’ve seen parents stop their vehicles in the travel portion of the road, get out and walk their

child to the gate,� he said. “You’re parking in a right-of-way.� Mayor Wayne Baldwin estimated parents’ driving habits comprise “99.9 per cent� of the problem, and suggested traffic calming may help. One parent who spoke also appealed for council to act. Susanne Mayer described a close call involving her own son and daughter – in which two trucks, one after the other, nearly hit them in the crosswalk. “I need something done because my children don’t need to be killed,� she said. “It is easy to say I’m sorry, but you can’t bring back the life of a child.�

Mayer told Peace Arch News she’s hoping changes will be made before students return in September. She said a crossing guard would help and agreed traffic calming would make a difference. “There has to be something to impede them to be able to go that speed,� she said. Meanwhile, parents of a Cloverdale neighbourhood with similar concerns took their demands for a crosswalk to the street last month, picketing at the corner of 168 Street and 57A Avenue. While Surrey officials promised to take another look at the area, the protesters were told a crosswalk is “not the answer.�

Copper thieves strip the wire, bundle it and take it to a scrap dealer, where they are paid for the commodity. Now, the city is looking at replacing all its copper wire with aluminum, which is

worth far less on the market, to stop the thefts from occurring. It’s estimated the replacement will cost Surrey $10 to $12 million. The city is also considering installing technology that can monitor streetlight cir-

editorial

Minister’s silence speaks volumes

S

tephanie Cadieux has dropped the ball on the issue of pay raises for Community Living B.C. executives. Apparently incompletely briefed when it came to light last fall that executives were receiving bonuses tied to meeting performance goals, the Minister of Social Development, and first-term BC Liberal MLA for Surrey-Panorama, vowed the bonuses would be discontinued. The issue surfaced again – with a vengeance – with the discovery that the executives are now receiving raises in place of the bonuses. It appears it has since been explained to Cadieux that the bonuses were a condition of their compensation that could not be withdrawn by the government. But BC Conservative leader John Cummins is not the only one finding it hard to accept Cadieux’s explanation that the bonuses were, in fact ‘holdbacks’ of salary – again hinging on meeting unspecified performance goals. As Cummins noted, a job is a job – particularly when it comes to providing services for CLBC clients, who have developmental disabilities or special needs. Either you do the job of helping them and get paid for it, or you don’t do the job and you look for new employment. Holding back salary shouldn’t enter the picture. If the payments were, in fact, bonuses, it begs the question Cummins continues to ask – what were they for? We say “it appears” the issue was explained to Cadieux, because ever since Premier Christy Clark found it necessary to step in for her minister to justify the holdbacks, Cadieux has not been available for comment, whether to clarify her position, respond to critics or admit error. There may be many legitimate reasons why Cadieux was not able all last week to return Peace Arch News’ calls, in spite of media handlers’ repeated assurances that she will eventually get back to us. But if there was a reasonable explanation, it didn’t come in time for three successive editions. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon, MLA for neighbouring Surrey-Cloverdale, is infamous for not getting back to his hometown newspapers, or getting back to them long after deadline – unless, of course, the contact seems to be favourable to his position, at which time he becomes almost magically available. If Cadieux has taken a leaf from her senior colleague’s book, it’s the wrong leaf this time.

So far this week you’ve said.... yes 61% no 38% 65 responding sweetened the pot as he unveiled new powers for BC Ferry Commissioner Gord Macatee to set service levels as well as regulate fares. Macatee’s task now is to travel the coast and endure the demands of island dwellers who want the rest of us to subsidize their splendid isolation. The proposition for them will boil down to this: You can pay more or you can have fewer sailings. And where the boat is a third full, you will have fewer sailings. This consultation period is an opportunity to ask some hard questions. For instance, does Saltspring Island really need three ferry terminals? And why is there no passenger-only service? Macatee’s term as commissioner started with a detailed review last year that pointed to some other ways to save serious money. But CEO Corrigan says there are no quick fixes. FortisBC has offered an $11 million incentive for conversion of marine vessels to natural gas, which would give the fleet significant relief from spiraling fuel costs. But a ferry conversion would take six months or more, and another vessel would be needed in the meantime. Another promising suggestion is overhauling the ferry reservation service, making reservations free and charging extra for those who just show up. Corrigan says a computer reservation overhaul is underway, but it will take three years.

Naked truth & consequences Editor: Re: Grads get dressing down over prank, June 26. Welcome to the me generation, where the only thing that counts is me – to heck with anyone else’s feelings. Thank you, Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary principal Allan Buggie, for standing up for common decency and judging stupidity and ignorance to be unacceptable. Any parent who condemns Buggie’s actions over streaking in the hallways has some serious problems with choosing between good and bad decisions. One parent claims that her son did it three years ago and got a threeday suspension. Repetition does not make something right, and the fact that has escalated is because they didn’t get the point three years ago. Maybe Buggie’s actions will make the message clear now. Stan Carter, Surrey

Harper government. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t enjoy trashing our prime minister like this. I’ve got better things to do with my time. But the man shows absolutely no respect for anyone or anything that stands in the way of his big plan. He’s definitely not interested in governing for all Canadians, but he’s definitely interested in controlling all Canadians. Bill C-38 is a very scary piece of legislation that gives ultimate power to just one man. C-38 also contains enough harmful ingredients to literally change the face of Canada while deconstructing democracy at the same time. Very scary indeed. No matter whom you are, where you come from or whatever your story may be, as Canadians we should all be deeply concerned about the harmful nature of Bill C-38. I know letter-writer and high school student Gary Sipeng Xie is. John Freeman, White Rock

Maintain the maintenance Editor: Since the landslide – due to the attempted removal of an old house – the stairs leading down from Buena Vista to access Vidal Street had been closed off as dangerous. Naturally, with this closure, the city did not gain access in order to trim back growth of various wild plants and bushes, nor trim overhanging trees. The stairs have been reopened for weeks now, and the city continues to ignore this area. It’s absolutely disgusting, as with the overgrowth, the garbage left behind. I met a city councillor coming down the steps yesterday. I glanced at him as he grabbed at some high weeds in disgust. I said, “Why don’t we leave it as is, then we can swing

up or down the stairs on vines – a great workout for the upper body.” Wonder if the city will listen to him if he mentions this problem to them? Ruth Carrier, White Rock Q I read with interest the debate over cameras on the promenade (White Rock eyes waterfront cameras, June 14). At what cost? It’s been at least two years since the blue railings along the promenade have been painted. They are rusted badly and will probably need more than the usual coat of paint. Also, the weeds growing beside the tracks are very unruly and unattractive. Is White Rock responsible for looking after their cleanup? Our garden workers do a beautiful job every year on the planters, etc. but the whole effect is marred by the state of the weeds. Has the shine worn off our promenade, as maintenance seems to have dropped in priority? Barbara Glynes, White Rock

City should be camera shy Editor: Re: White Rock eyes waterfront cameras, June 14. Some may think that the issues of cameras is important, but it has to be well-reasoned and based on far more tangible facts at hand. To think that we will be the first without hefty opposition in the courts and matching legal bills we would be foolish. This item is considered by many as the thin edge of the wedge, if you will, and both mayor and council are on a very slippery slope on this issue. This seemingly small issue is going to lead us down a very perilous road that we will take at our own risk and expense. We might be creating an environment that is unwelcome to those who might wish to visit our city, and with the absence of better reasoning, we risk further harm to our local small business community as well.

Fellow White Rock council members remember Mary-Wade Anderson, who died in hospital last Tuesday at age 84.

Parting is such sweet sorrow Editor: Re: Remembering Mary-Wade, June 28. Coun. Mary-Wade Anderson stopped my shopping cart in the grocery store. I wouldn’t dare just pass her by. In her precise Queen’s English, she proclaimed I “must” bring a certain issue before council as a citizen question. There was no question of my following her command. Upon becoming a councillor and being seated next to her, I heard “you must” on several occasions. My failure to obey these prompts would be followed by a piercing stare, as if a piece of broccoli was in my teeth, with Mary-Wade enunciating, “are you going to sit there or say something?” – as I attempted to move away her microphone. That withering look of disgust and bewilderment usually pushed my hand into the air for, what I hoped, was a rational statement followed by Mary-Wade’s nod and smile, as she moved her microphone back into place. I will miss it. Coun. Larry Robinson, City of White Rock Q Mary-Wade had a wonderful sense of humour. She was dry and witty and remained as sharp as a tack. There were times during council meetings that Mary would lean towards me and say, “what on earth are they talking about?” She would add some funny comment under her breath when another councillor became just “too much.” I would cover my mouth or cough to hide my expression from the camera as to try not to laugh. Mary did not suffer fools lightly. She was an intelligent, outspoken, hardworking councillor. To not miss a single council meeting in 12 years is impressive.

I learnt a lot from Mary-Wade. She would tell me, “You don’t get anywhere in politics by being part of the group; say what you need to say and don’t back down.” I shall remember her words of wisdom forever. Coun. Helen Fathers, City of White Rock Q A very sad day. We knew Mary for only a few years but what a pleasure she was. We became good friends and colleagues. My wife, Kathleen, and I will really miss her. Coun. Alan Campbell, City of White Rock Q Jane and I have known Mary-Wade for about 27 years. We first met when she was a Realtor and past-president of the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board. A few years later we happily found ourselves in the same Rotary Club. Mary-Wade spent the last 12 years as a devoted city council member, a vocal advocate for the community she served. In addition to council, Mary-Wade had two other great passions: the Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation and watching Tiger Woods play golf. Family was extremely important, and she couldn’t have been happier when she was reunited with her children. One of Mary-Wade’s proudest achievements was to champion the completion of the fifth and sixth floors of Peace Arch Hospital. It seemed fitting that her final moments were spent in a lovely room on the sixth floor of that hospital, surrounded with an array of photos of her newly rediscovered family on the window ledge. We will miss her greatly. Mayor Wayne Baldwin, City of White Rock

news Send-off for local sports stars going to Summer Games

Athletes Olympics-bound Two local athletes gearing up to compete in the Summer Games in London this August received special recognition from White Rock city council last week. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for us to give our Olympic athletes a bit of a send-off,” Mayor Wayne Baldwin said, following a presentation to weightlifter Christine Girard and swimmer Hilary Caldwell (who couldn’t make the meeting, but whose parents attended in her stead). Girard, 27, qualified for the 2012 Games in March, when she won gold at the Western Canadian Weightlifting Championships in the 63-kilogram weight class with a 236-kg total lift (102 kg snatch, 134 clean-and-jerk). She holds all Canadian records in that weight class, Baldwin noted. Caldwell, a South Surrey native who now lives and trains in Victoria, punched her ticket to the Games after placing second in the women’s 200-metre back-

Surrey man faces eight counts for juice-bar heists

Charges laid in robberies The world’s softest shoe

Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

A 29-year-old Surrey man has been charged with eight counts of robbery in connection with a series of holdups, including those at three Booster Juice stores in South Surrey and Langley. The charges also relate to incidents at three Subway outlets and one Quizno’s in Surrey, as well as a Langley tanning salon. The robberies took place between June 2 and June 14, Surrey Provincial Court records show. Clayton Norris is due back in court today (Tuesday). More charges are possible, police said. Security footage from the holdup at the Langley Booster Juice showed a Caucasian man in his 20s, wearing a hoodie and a glove on one hand, who threatened a store cashier with a knife. The man was wearing sunglasses and a baseball hat with “Police� embroidered on the front. The incident was one of three robberies at the chain of juice bars in less than two weeks: On June 3, the Booster Juice outlet at 15161 Hwy. 10 in South Surrey was robbed at 7:30 p.m. by a man with a knife; on June 7, another South Surrey Booster Juice store, at 15355 24 Ave., was

Langley RCMP said the suspect was arrested as a result of a conversation between a Langley store owner who had just been robbed and a passerby. “We’d like to convey our appreciation and thanks to the two civilians who provided key information to police, which assisted us in making an arrest,� Sgt. Ravinder Pawar said Thursday. “We just needed the last piece of the puzzle from the public in order to gather evidence to support robbery charges.� The tip came in June 19. On June 21, Surrey RCMP’s

Strike Force Target Team in collaboration with Langley RCMP arrested Norris. “Since the start of this investigation both detachments have been working together sharing information and resources,� Surrey RCMP Sgt. Drew Grainger said. “Investigators would like to point out that high-quality video images were helpful in quickly identifying a suspect. They would also like to thank some keen-eyed members of the public for their observations which helped assist them in making this arrest.� Anyone who may have further information is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

Teachers voting on deal Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. Teachers’ Federation executive is recommending acceptance of an agreement reached with school district negotiators that extends most of the terms of the contract that expired a year ago. Teachers voted last week on the proposed settlement, which runs until June 30, 2013. The B.C. Public School Employers’ Association, representing B.C.’s 60 school districts, will hold a vote for trustees this week. The agreement puts off a bitter dispute over government changes to hiring, layoff and performance evaluation of teachers. Education Minister George Abbott said the deal includes a letter of understanding to continue talks on those issues. BCTF president Susan Lambert said the agreement includes some improvements to teacher bene-

But last Wednesday, Lambert announced the union is making the latest of many trips to court to argue that imposing a two-year wage freeze violates their constitutional right to collective bargaining. The BCTF is the last major public sector union in the province to accept the wage limits. “We have been able to achieve some modest improvements but, above all, we succeeded in getting

government to take its concession demands off the table,” Lambert said. Abbott rejected the union’s claim that the employer was trying to cut back professional-development provisions. The ministry wants to standardize provisions that were negotiated separately with the 60 districts before province-wide bargaining was imposed, he said. BCPSEA chair Melanie Joy said the tentative agreement standardizes provincial language for the number of leaves and establishes a process for determining local and provincial issues. Acceptance of the agreement will allow schools to resume classes next fall with teachers resuming extra-curricular activities and meetings with school administration. The work-to-rule campaign extended throughout the school year, and culminated in a threeday strike in March.

Surrey school trustees vote for a raise Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Surrey school trustees will receive about $560 per year more after the majority voted themselves a raise. The seven members of the Surrey Board of Education will now receive an annual base rate of $30,400, with the chairperson getting an additional

$3,000 per year and the vice-chair $1,500. Trustee Charlene Dobie voted against the pay raise. Trustees Reni Masi and Pam Glass were absent at the June 21 meeting. The increase is in line with the 1.9 per cent increase in the Consumer Price Index for Vancouver in the past year.

The Surrey board’s wages now total $217,300 – less than Coquitlam and Vancouver, which have nine elected trustees apiece – despite Surrey’s much higher student enrolment. Trustee honorariums are reviewed annually. Surrey trustees got a 2.6 per cent raise last year.

K&D Furniture gets ready to close its doors after decades of service

End of era for longtime business owners Alex Browne photo

Allyson and Henry Chenier (top) are set to retire after co-owning K&D Furniture since 1992. Bottom left, Allyson and Henry in 1991, just before they took over the business. Allyson’s parents, Kirk (bottom right) and Daryl were the founders.

Staff Reporter

The familiar radio and TV jingle with the perky female singer is embedded in the minds of many of us, part of the soundscape of our lives: “We do more than the others do – we do the most for you – K&D Furniture.” As the iconic Peninsula retailer prepared to close its doors this past Saturday for the last time with the retirement of owners Allyson and Henry Chenier, the notes came back as a bittersweet memory for the couple – a remembrance of a business that was truly part of the fabric of its community and a reminder of a way of life that has changed, inevitably, as the community has grown. Allyson never cared much for K&D’s musical signature, she admits. Daughter of K&D founders Kirk and Daryl Taylor – and co-owner of the business with husband Henry since 1992 – she remembers it haunting her childhood, although it’s now acquired an aura of nostalgia. “When I was in elementary school and in high school I hated that jingle,” she said, laughing. “I’d be walking down the hallways and other students would be singing it at me.” Henry, who managed the company’s Cloverdale store for a while in the late 1970s before joining the main South Surrey store in the early 1980s, also found he couldn’t escape the reach of the long-lived advertising campaign, particularly when travelling throughout B.C. with the company gas card. “I was in Prince George once, at a gas station, and when I handed over the card the girl started singing the jingle.” For Henry, retirement comes after 42 years in the furniture business. He originally worked for the same Vancouver retailer that employed the Taylors before they decided to go out on their own with a South Surrey store in 1972. Centre).

There were also many ‘just for fun’ events that K&D staged for the community, particularly in the old days when liability issues didn’t tend to be top of mind – including one narrowly averted disaster Henry still recalls with a grimace. “We always did fireworks at Halloween,” he said. “We’d started out small but each year it had been getting bigger, until one year Kirk and I each had a big box of fireworks we were lighting. “Somehow, one spark from a firework flew into my box and they all started going off at once. They were going everywhere. I was trying to run and cover up

the box so that they wouldn’t go anywhere else. We were worried that someone would get hurt, but, thankfully, no one did. “After that, we started doing our firework displays at the beach!” After Allyson and Henry married and bought the business in 1992, K&D relocated to the business park on King George Boulevard across from the South Surrey Auto Mall. In 2002, they opened a Langley store and Allyson became the manager there, while Henry ran the South Surrey operation. “We were competitive, very competitive. In the evenings it was like, ‘Hi, honey – how much did you make today?’” Allyson said. The choice to retire was on their own terms, they reiterated, noting that none of their children had shown an inclination to take over the family business and lead it through a changing furniture

marketplace for the next 20 years. The decision also had the blessing of Allyson’s parents, they said. “We’ve retained full rights to the name,” said Henry, who joined Allyson in stressing that selling the business to someone else didn’t feel right. “It would be too hard to drive past the stores and know they were owned by someone else, particularly if they weren’t being run to our standard,” Allyson said. “There are a lot of places that say they’ve been in business for 40 years, but they’ve had three separate owners,” Henry added. Cleaning up the South Surrey store (the Langley operation wound up earlier this year) has been an emotional experience, Allyson said, as old records with names of former longtime employees and packages of old photos have surfaced. Many of the latter-day staff had been with the company a long time, she said. For example Jack Russell, first hired by Henry in 1981, retired but couldn’t evidently kick the K&D habit – up to the closure, he’d been working part-time at the store a couple of days a week. Among other long-term employees who – like all the other workers – were adamant they would stay on until the end, were Joyce Vanderwalle, shipper Marty Atkinson and office manager Tammy Ryfa, all of whom started around 1991. What the closing has reconfirmed to Allyson, she said, is that K&D was not just a family business over all those decades, but a family of its own. Looking back, she’s sure that her and Henry’s was not the only romance kindled among co-workers, either. But they say they’ve also been genuinely surprised and touched by the number of regular customers who’ve taken the time to come in or write notes of congratulation and appreciation. And they’ll be honouring all orders taken in the last weeks of the business, even if, as Henry said, “we end up having to do the deliveries ourselves.” “We truly want to thank the community for all the support and patronage that they have shown us over the past 40 years,” Allyson said. “Without the community and our customers, K&D would not have made it as long as it did, and we have been very blessed that my parents chose White Rock to set up shop.”

Prepare for chills and thrills – Peninsula Productions brings Agatha Christie’s legendary 1952 mystery, The Mousetrap, to White Rock July 11-28 at the Coast Capital Playhouse (8 p.m. performances). “We really feel that the Peninsula is ripe for high-quality entertainment of all kinds and we intend to fill the gap,” said Geoff Giffin, partner in Peninsula Productions with artistic director Wendy Bollard. Something like a live-action version of Clue, the theatre classic – which has run continuously in London since its debut 60 years ago – concerns mystery and misdeeds at historic Monkswell Manor, recently renovated as a guest house. A strange assortment of characters – a newlywed couple, a persnickety older woman, a flamboyant young man, an army major, a mannish woman, an unexpected guest and a keen young police sergeant – are stranded at the manor by a snowstorm. News of a recent murder arrives, along with the suspicion that the murderer may be one of the group. Among players who will be wellknown locally in The Mousetrap are Paul Kloegman (The Cat’s Meow), Lori Tych (The Lion In Winter), Sam Gordon (A Bedfull of Foreigners) and, in a departure from her usual public appearances as a singer, Laine Henderson, in the lead role of Monkswell Manor’s new owner, Mollie Ralston. Also in the cast are Stephen Benjamin Fowler, Spenser Dunlop and Everett Shea. Tickets are $23 ($18 seniors) and can be purchased at www. whiterockplayers.ca or in person at The Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd. Gala opening is July 13, and there will be 2:30 p.m. matinees on July 15 and 22. For more information, visit peninsulaproductions.org

Svein Tuft and Christian Meier will also compete at Tour de White Rock

Top spots in race for local riders A pair of local riders delivered a one-two punch at the Canadian road time trial championships. Langley’s Svein Tuft and Christian Meier won gold and silver, respectively, last Thursday (June 21) in Lac Meagantic, Que. Both riders will be in White Rock later this month, competing at the Tour de White Rock from July 13-15. Tuft posted a time of 47 minutes and 26 seconds on the 39-kilometre course to win his fifth straight Canadian time trial title and his eighth overall. Meier was 2:08 behind his teammate, who both ride for Australian team Orica-GreenEdge. Despite the victory, Tuft was passed over by Cycling Canada to represent the country at the upcoming London Summer Olympics. With just one spot for a Canadian rider in both the road race and time trial, Cycling Canada chose Ryder Hesjedal, who made history last month as the first Canadian to win the Giro d’Italia. Tuft said he understands the decision, adding that the problem is that Canada only had a single spot. As for riding at nationals, Tuft said it was all preparation. “I wanted to defend the title,

Langley’s Svein Tuft at the 2010 Tour de White Rock, which he won. of course, but for me, my approach and the way I ride are more important to me than the result,” said Tuft on his team’s website. “I’m not interested in only having a good ride today, I’m looking down the road at the world time trial championships. It’s a huge goal for the team, and I want to contribute to us having a good crack at it there. Every time I’m on the time trial bike, it’s in preparation for that end-of-the-season goal.” “Today is super-satisfying,” he added. “I did everything I could

with the course I had.” The course favoured Tuft’s strengths. “The time trial was run on wide open roads over heavy rolling terrain,” Tuft said. “It was hot and windy today. We did three laps, and on the return trip, we climbed into a headwind. As long as the climbing isn’t too steep, a heavy course suits me.” Experienced in time trials of this distance in all conditions, Tuft cut back on his warm-up and paid extra attention to his hydration ahead of the effort in

the heat. “I’ve learned that a long warmup isn’t important when it’s this hot,” noted Tuft. “It’s far more important to focus on cooling efforts and hydration. I definitely did that. I spoke regularly with Marc Quod, the trainer for our team. He kept me on course for the appropriate approach. While my experience has helped me know how to prepare, it’s definitely nice to have him as back-up to guide me.” In addition to contact with Quod, Tuft and Meier enjoyed on-site support from the British Columbia provincial team. “They’ve been really super to us. They have no obligation to look after us. They have a bunch of young kids – juniors, U23 riders, upcoming guys. They run a good program, and we’re lucky to have their support.” Both Meier and Tuft will look to add additional podium finishes during BC Superweek, which in addition to the Tour de White Rock, includes races in Burnaby, Delta and Gastown. Both men have had success in White Rock before. In 2010, Tuft won both White Rock’s road race and criterium events. The same year, Meier placed third in the road race. - Black Press

Our much loved Mother passed away on June 22, 2012 at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital. Ruth was born in Union Bay, BC on November 1, 1925. The daughter of the late Leslie and Greta Carter, sister of the late Ralph Carter. Ruth was the devoted and much loved wife of her late husband Malcolm Byers. Ruth was a proud and loving Mother. She is survived by her son Grant (Gail) Byers, daughter Gail (Wesley) Chan and grandchildren, Sterling, Winston, Britlynn and Kara Chan. Ruth loved Maui and enjoyed 40 years of vacations there. After retirement from BCIT Ruth became an avid traveler, enjoying many adventures around the world with her lifelong friend Bea Boyd. Ruth was also an active volunteer in her church and community of White Rock. She especially enjoyed her Walking Group and the many friendships she made. Ruth lived her life based on her belief that everyone should “seize the moment”. It was her wish that everyone follow her favourite passage: Miss Me but Let Me Go

CAINE, James Lawrence On June 26, 2012 Jim passed away quietly surrounded by his family. He will be missed by his wife Evelyn of 61 years; children, Neil (Pam), Lynn (Brian), Greg (Kim); grandchildren, Brandy (Greg), Kerri, Amy, Leanne; and his great grandchildren, Tayven & Oliver. He is survived by two sisters, Harriet & Louella; brother and sister-in-laws, Jack, Eleanor, Don (Cathy), and other relatives, nieces and nephews. Jim was born on January 9, 1927 in Edmonton to Harry and Bertha Caine, the 5th of 7 children. He grew up on the farm, and later joined the Army. After his release from the military he worked in the Alberta oil fields. During this time he met and married Evelyn, and a few years later they moved with their young family to Surrey, BC to establish a fur farm. Shortly thereafter they made their home in White Rock. Jim was a successful businessman, having developed several properties in the gravel business. Jim enjoyed traveling, tending his llamas and gardening. He encouraged and supported his family above all else and family gatherings were his greatest joy. His love and his values will live on with us all forever. The family appreciates the wonderful care provided by Dr. Kanagaratnam, the Fraser Health Palliative Care Team and the Peace Arch Hospice. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the White Rock Hospice Society or the Heart & Stroke Foundation of BC in Jim’s memory. A celebration of Jim’s life will be held at a later date.

When I come to the end of the road And the Sun has set for me I want no rites in a gloom filled room Why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little, but not for long And not with your head bowed low. Remember the love we once shared Miss me but let me go. For this is the journey we all must take And each must go alone It’s part of the Master’s plan A step on the road to home. So when you are lonely and sick at heart Go to friends you know And burrow your sorrows in doing good deeds Miss me but let me go. The family wishes to thank her many caregivers at Bevan Lodge. Special thanks to Dr. Paul and Dr. Gill for your kindness and care during her final months. Following Ruth’s wishes, there will not be a service. Donations in her memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. We love you Mom.
