NHL taps former Cloverdale Colt Khaira

By Jennifer Lang Cloverdale Colt alumni Jujhar Khaira has been drafted by the Edmonton Oilers. A third round draft pick, Khaira has gone from being passed over for the WHL Bantam draft three years ago to becoming an NHL prospect – after two seasons of junior hockey with the BCHL’s Prince George Spruce Kings. The 17-year-old left winger played for the Cloverdale Colts midget team in 2009-

Good Samaritan directs traffic, earns praise

Proudly Canadian BOAZ JOSEPH

To the editor;


Jean-Pierre Parent lets his national pride shine at Surrey’s Cannada Day celebrations July 1 at the Cloverdale Millennium Amphitheatre.

I would like to make a public thank you to a courteous man who directed traffic on Canada Day on 65A Ave. at 176A Street. We were stuck in a complete traffic jam for about 45 minutes when leaving the fireworks. Not a single car was moving and it was complete mayhem. This man was nice enough to stand out and guide cars into two lines of traffic in order to clear the jam. It was starting to get crazy with everyone honking and yelling and thanks to him we all were able to get moving.

To the editor; This year not everyone got to celebrate and bring in the festivities of Canada Day. We are sending this asking why our very happy, friendly, loving and extremely socialized (licensed) family dog was NOT allowed to participate in the Surrey Canada Day event in Cloverdale.

To the editor; Re: “Residents demand safer crossing,” June 21 If you live on the east side of 168th at 57A Ave. would you not walk up to the lights at 60th to ensure that your children are safe? My child, (now a young adult) was always taught to cross at a marked crosswalk or traffic lights ONLY when the green man is lighted. Why would you chance it and teach your children it’s ok to run across into traffic? (I see this a lot.)

Surrey Central School is not that far from the lights to warrant putting your children in danger. Between 168th and 176th on 60th I would love to see a lighted cross walk there because of the Athletic Park and the high school because there is no sidewalk on the south side of 60th that goes all the way down to the lights.

Ancient gods, modern masters ‘Myths and Muses’ spur Lego builders to great heights

By Jennifer Lang Has a modest travel budget got you down? This summer, the Surrey Museum brings the wonders of the ancient world to you in Lego: Myths and Muses. Marvel at the Great Pyramid of Egypt. Be dazzled as gladiators brawl at the Roman Colosseum. Feel the awe of Mount Olympus, the highest peak in Greece, and the seat of the ancient gods. Ponder epic battles in miniature. The Vancouver Lego Club is back with another spectacular exhibit, proving there’s no limit to what these creative minds can come up with when given a challenge. The club chose to depict the stories and mythologies of the ancient world – and Underworld – Greece, Rome, Persia (Troy), Egypt, Hades, and the lost City of Atlantis. It’s a universe built from colourful, tiny plastic bricks. Hundreds of them. Thousands of them. None can say quite how many. “Needless to say, it’s a lot,� says VLC member Pierre Chum, who was part of the crew that feverishly assembled the exhibit in time for last week’s opening. “And there are no instructions,� he adds. “These are not sets you can buy in stores.� Adding to the challenge was the lack of classicalthemed Lego pieces, like those that come with Star Wars, Secret Agents or the castle sets, and include appropriately-attired Lego people, or “minifigs�, and specialized bricks. “We had to experiment with what would work.� The club’s Lego exhibits are among the Surrey Museum’s most popular attractions, and it’s easy to see why. Two summers ago, the club mounted Pirates!

Mindful Musings Despite the heroic efforts of these wet months, summer is finally upon us (at least, according to my calendar). God’s covenant with our great green earth continues as the seasons march on and on. Seed which germinated in springtime will mature and ripen under the nutritious rays of the hot summer sun, and with God’s blessing our fertile land will yield its plentiful crops again in due time. Have you ever paused to think about the sheer, illimitable wonder of it all?

creative license when it came to creating a scene of Mount Olympus and the City of Atlantis, riffing on the Myths and Muses theme. Look closely and you’ll discover surprises like a red parrot gazing at the Sphynx, or a hot Grecian babe relaxing in a bubbly azure pool. “A lot of research, imagination and creativity is involved in putting together an exhibit like this,” Chum says. Due to the amount of planning involved, and how large some of the displays are, it would be impossible to build the whole exhibit on site. Instead, each area of the exhibit had a primary builder, who may or may not have had assistants. Large sections are built, taken apart, carefully transported and reassembled in the exhibit hall. “Sometimes,” Chum says, “there are mishaps and things get broken en route to the museum. But that’s the beauty of Lego. We just rebuild it.” Inside the exhibit hall, builders work late into the night to get their displays ready in time. “We’ve been given a lot of space at the Surrey Museum and we intend to fill it,” Chum explains. The members live across the Lower Mainland and represent a cross-section of backgrounds and professions – drawn together by a common passion. They spur each other to new heights of creativity and complexity in their Lego displays. “The most challenging thing can be juggling one’s career with one’s hobby,” something that ramps up for a major project like the Myth and Muses exhibit, Chum says. “It can draw a lot of time in preparation. But when we see the smiles on people’s faces as they see something cool that we’ve built, that makes it all worthwhile.” They also hope to inspire the next generation of Lego builders, young or old. “They learn something new about what is possible and hopefully, they’ll take it even further and build something even better.” – LEGO: Myths and Muses runs to Sept. 15.

Redevelopment at the heart of city’s revitalization plans

Teachers accept deal

Members of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation have ratified a two-year agreement with B.C.’s school districts by a 75 per cent margin. Turnout for the vote was only 52 per cent, with 21,044 teachers casting ballots. The agreement is for two years, one of which has passed with a lengthy work-to-rule campaign since the previous contract expired in 2011. 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. The B.C. Public School Employers’ Association, representing B.C.’s 60 school districts, are holding a vote for trustees this week.

us money, but significantly, we hope it will achieve some community objectives in taking that site out of what it is now, an empty parking lot, a derelict site, into an active part of the community,” Cox said. Townline is partnering with the city on the first two phases of Cloverdale West Village, a five-phase development bordered by the 176 Street bypass and 57 Avenue. The property, now owned by the City of Surrey, was home to the Cloverdale Shoppers Plaza from 1973 until it was torn down early last year. The site, long the focus of redevelopment promises, is zoned for high density residential, permitting up to 10 storeys of residential, however soil conditions preclude building more than one level of underground parking, limiting the residential component. The Cloverdale West Village master plan called for 485 residential units in three, five and six-storey buildings built over five phases, creating 50,000 to 60,000-square feet of retail space to Cloverdale and bringing hundreds of new residents into downtown. “That’s going to be 1,000 shop-

pers that will support the community around here,” Cox said. “We see it as a neighbourhood hub that’s knit right in with the existing downtown of Cloverdale.” There will be no low income housing, Cox clarified for Cloverdale BIA members June 28. There had been some initial talk of potentially including supportive housing for Legion members, but that idea was abandoned early on.

Once complete, the original Legion building will be demolished and the land redeveloped for phase two. According to Cox, both the SCDC and Townline are bringing more money to the table, and the Legion made a concession. “This project is going to be a little tight for us,” he said, adding he was hopeful getting phase one underway will kick start the redevelopment.

Offering a sardine-free commute

ProfessionalQ&A plus great helpful


Luxury shuttle co-founder lives in Cloverdale

By Gary Ahuja â&#x20AC;&#x153;The drive makes me want to poke my eyes out.â&#x20AC;? Kristine Carrick blurted the words out with laughter as she sat down in the comfortable confines of Pacific Commuter June 28. Carrick was referring to commuting from the Fraser Valley to Vancouver. And her sentiments are very likely shared by thousands of others who shuttle back and forth across the Port Mann Bridge for work every day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In transit, you are squished in like a sardine,â&#x20AC;? added Maryanne Lechleiter. The pair were riding the bus as part a media tour prior to Pacific Commuterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s July 3 launch. While Carrick now works in Langley, a few years back, her job required the occasional trip to downtown Vancouver. Had this been a reasonable option for her back then, she said she would have been all over the idea. The idea is the brainchild of childhood friends Darius Kovacs and Chris Geoghegan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was really tired thinking about how much time I was wasting on my morning commute,â&#x20AC;? Geoghegan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is out of necessity.â&#x20AC;? Kovacs lives in Langley, while Geoghegan is a Cloverdale resident. Both are 30 years old and work in downtown Vancouver. They came up with the idea a few months ago during one of their many commutes. And the end result was Pacific Commuter, which they describe as a club, not a business. They are not in this to specifically make money, the men say, but rather for their own benefit as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is like the hair club,â&#x20AC;? Kovacs joked referring to the Hair Club for Men commercial. Members â&#x20AC;&#x201D; there are already close to 20 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; pay a $5 annual fee, plus $395 per month for those who commit to a full year membership. The alternative is $495 for a monthly membership. They are offering a free oneweek trial. By comparison â&#x20AC;&#x201D; using average gas prices and trip length, plus with money for parking â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they came up with a monthly cost of driving of $485. And this does not include the cost of tolling for the new Port Mann Bridge. That works out to a

monthly savings of $90 per month and $1,080 per year. Members receive a spot on the 42-person luxury bus, which has two pick-up spots â&#x20AC;&#x201D; near the Langley Airport (21277 56 Ave.) and at Clayton Crossing (68 Avenue at Fraser Highway) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and three drop-off locations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Sheraton Wall Centre, Waterfront Station and Coal Harbour. A third pick-up location is in the works, depending on what suits members. The vehicle has reclining plush seats, tray tables, a kitchenette, bathroom, and WiFi connection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you are a contractor, time is money,â&#x20AC;? said Kovacs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact I can work on my way to work alone makes the cost of membership worth its weight in gold.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was really tired of thinking about how much time I was wasting on my morning commute,â&#x20AC;? Geoghegan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I realized this didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist and about how many people â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not to mention the environment â&#x20AC;&#x201D; could benefit from it. It is a much needed connection for residents of Langley and Surrey who make the long commute downtown every working day.â&#x20AC;? The pair, who came up with the idea a couple of months ago, estimate that their start-up costs have been about a combined $3,000. After renting the bus â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which means not having to do maintenance or provide fuel cuts down on costs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they set up a website and began planning the logistics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our experience isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t running a bus company,â&#x20AC;? Geoghegan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We see our job as getting this group together and providing a good experience.â&#x20AC;? The free time on the bus should benefit the riders in a variety of ways. For one, they can use the time to catch up on emails or just surf the web. And it should help them relax after a long day at work. Another benefit is it will take vehicles off the road. Of the club members already signed up, Kovacs said they are not current transit users but are people who drive to work. If the demand is there, they are open to getting more buses and possibly expanding to Abbotsford. Visit pacificcommuter. com to learn more. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Black Press

I heard that L-Carnitine has been approved for sale in Canada. What is it good for?


L-Carnitine is essential in the process of energy production by the mitochondria. Hence its presence is crucial wherever energy production is involved and that means itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most important for heart and muscle functions. People with angina and fatigue states are most likely to benefit from supplementation. It is also an antioxidant that specifically protects the phospholipid membranes of cells and nerves. Hence it is also important for the integrity of the nervous system and may benefit dementia and neuropathies.

When I press a few of the keys on my laptop a different letter appears. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong? Could be one of three things. Your keyboard may need changing, you have a particular virus (worm) that affects the typed lettering and lastly the ic chip on your motherboard controlling your keyboard could be the culprit.

Why does my realtor bring me offers lower than what I have said I would accept? Is this not a waste of time? Realtors are obligated to inform you of every offer that is written. Sometimes a realtor will write up an offer that they suspect will be rejected; however, a realtor should not try to second guess what an owner will accept for price nor what a buyer will ultimately pay for a property. That decision must strictly be left up to the parties involved. The owner has the option of rejecting, accepting or countering any offer. Sometimes a low offer can be negotiated into a very acceptable outcome for all involved.
