Americans sweep Giro races Women’s winner 47 and still racing strong Grant Granger

American Laura Van Gilder had every reason to treat herself to a mint-flavoured ice cream after winning the Giro di Burnaby women’s race in The Heights on Thursday. After all, many of the 47-yearold’s competitors were in diapers, or not even born, when she began

racing bicycles 21 years ago. But she had used her experience and competitiveness to beat them all on a sunny summer’s evening, and a treat was in order. Van Gilder crossed the finish line of the 30-lap, 37-km criterium about 20 feet ahead of Loren Rowney, exchanging final positions with the Australian from the Gastown race the night before. At 23, Rowney is less than half Van Gilder’s age, and at six-feet is 11 inches taller. “I love the thrill of the

competition. I still have the nervous competitive spirit that drives me. I don’t see retirement in my future,” said Van Gilder, who claimed a firstplace prize of $1,200. “I don’t think about my age when I’m racing, I think about [the other competitors]. I’m going to fight them tooth and nail.” Ken Hanson of Santa Barbara, Calif., duplicated his Gastown victory at the Giro to take home $2,000 in the men’s race. Van Gilder figures she has won

about 380 road and cyclo-cross races, give or take one or two. Although she wasn’t a competitive athlete in high school or university she caught the cycling bug at the age of 26 when she began mountain biking with a friend. He told her she might have the right stuff to become a good cyclist. Boy, was he right. She took to it quickly riding in 75 races her first season.

The community has donated almost $35,000 to help the young family of a Burnaby murder victim, says SUCCESS, the social service agency that helped establish the trust fund. Huong (Andy) Tran owned Royal Oak Sushi House in South Burnaby where he and employee Chinh (Vivian) Diem Huynh were shot to death on May 27. The prime suspect in the homicides and the attempted murder of his former landlord is former security guard Angus Mitchell, who had both the restaurant and Huynh on a lengthy hit list before he was killed in a shootout with police in Maple Ridge on May 30. Tran, who was the sole breadwinner of his family, left behind his wife, Yuzhe Zhong, and two sons, two and five. His family contacted SUCCESS shortly after his death seeking assistance. Donations were accepted at five SUCCESS service centres as well as financial institutions. Please see suCCess, a4

By 2002, she had turned cycling into a full-time profession enabling her to ditch working in her family’s restaurant in Pocono Pines, Pa. She went on to win two United States road and two cyclocross titles, amongst the hundreds of other races she’s been in. “I hope so,” she said when asked if she can hit the 400 win mark. “There’s going to be a day when I’m not mentioned on the podium.” Just six days before the Giro, Van Gilder was back home in Pocono Pines surfing cycling Facebook sites and found out about BC Superweek. She was scheduled to race in Boise, Idaho on Saturday (July 14), and realized this was an opportunity to race some more while out west. She quickly made flight arrangements and recruited her Mellow Mushroom teammate Kristen LaSasso to go with her. “Things fell into place and we said, ‘Let’s do this,’ ” said Van Gilder. They hopped on a plane and arrived in time for the UBC Grand Prix on Tuesday, although Van Gilder’s bike didn’t arrive with her. So she used a borrowed one to finish fourth. By Wednesday, she had her own back and came in second at the revived Gastown Grand Prix behind Rowney, who rides for Specialized Lululemon, the team Canadian Olympian Clara Hughes races for. “I’m already planning for the trip next year,” said Van Gilder, who figures the field will be much bigger in 2013 when she starts spreading the word south of the border. Van Gilder, Rowney and Jean Ann Berkenpas, who lives in Maple Ridge, broke away from the rest of the 28-rider field early and maintained their considerable distance through the remainder of the race. Berkenpas finally faded with about seven laps left leaving Van Gilder and Rowney

to battle it out on their own. Van Gilder said she knew if the three “got away we could put the power to the pedals” and lose the rest of the pack. “More often than not being aggressive like that pays off,” said Rowney, who wasn’t bothered by losing to someone more than twice her age. “I’ve looked up to her. She’s a fantastic athlete and a fantastic rider. She’s not just a sprinter. I was happy to get the win [in Gastown].” New Zealander Joseph Cooper led for much of the men’s 45-lap, 55-km race, racking up five primes lap wins totaling at least

$700 before the peloton caught up to him. They jockeyed back and forth with many in the audience keeping their eyes on locals Christian Meier and Svein Tuft— who has ridden in the Tour de France and won the UBC Grand Prix on Tuesday. But on the final sprint neither could catch up to Hanson, who emerged victorious despite not being on the race announcers’ radar the whole race. The race lasted just a shade under 80 minutes, with the last lap being the fastest of the night at one minute and 37 seconds. Hanson and his Optum

teammates were not only coming off a victory the night before, but a bachelor party for the squad’s Sebastian Salas of Delta that ended in the wee hours of Thursday morning. “My teammates suffered a lot more than I did tonight. They did a lot of work. I did minimal work and it set me up for the sprint. This was a win for the team,” said Hanson. “Winning races is amazing. Winning two days in a row is extra special. Everyone steps up and is doing their job … Just winning [in Gastown] took some pressure off of us. We really

Rowney got $800 for being the women’s runner-up while Berkenpas took home $500. The night before, Rowney won $8,000 while Van Gilder picked up $6,000.

Next set of meetings slated for hospital consultation

Habitat’s ReStore hit three times

The Burnaby Hospital Community Consultation Committee has scheduled its next string of public forums running through the summer to collect ideas on what people would like to see for the future of the hospital. First up is Thursday, July 19, 4 to 7 p.m. at Cameron Recreation Centre, 9523 Cameron St., Burnaby. Next is the first Vancouver meeting, on Saturday, July 21, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at the Renfrew

Habitat for Humanity’s Burnaby ReStore has been the target of thieves and vandals for the third time in 10 days. The ReStore, located on Douglas Road, sells donated goods and materials to raise money for Habitat’s affordable housing projects. The most recent incident Wednesday night (July 11) saw the culprits target a truck, and making off with tools valued at more than $5,000, said Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver in a press release. In two other break-ins, safety work boots donated by a major retailer and wiring was stolen. Including damage to the property, fencing and gates, the total losses from the three incidents is more than $10,000. The crimes are disheartening, said Tom Riessner, director of the ReStores. “These materials are donated to us by individuals and companies and ultimately support the work of our volunteers who build homes for partner families.” The non-profit organization is currently working to complete

Summer wraps up with the following forums: Thursday, Aug. 23, 5:30 to 8 p.m. at McGill branch of Burnaby Public Library, 4595 Albert St., Burnaby; Saturday, Aug. 25, 3 to 5:30 p.m. at the Tommy Douglas branch of

Burnaby Public Library, 7311 Kingsway, Burnaby; Thursday, Sept. 6, 7 to 8:30 p.m., at the Italian Cultural Centre, 3075 Slocan St., Vancouver; and Saturday, Sept. 8, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Bonsor Recreation Complex, 6550 Bonsor Ave., Burnaby. For more information or to register to present to the committee, email mybbyhospital@hotmail.com. twitter.com/wandachow

SUCCESS not heard from other family continued from front page

As of July 10, almost $34,741 had been collected. “I am very grateful to the community for the support I received at this very difficult time,” said Zhong in a press release. “I thank each and every donor who gave donations. I also thank the many persons at SUCCESS and SUCCESS Foundation for the assistance they provided to me to deal with the aftermath of this tragedy.” Maggie Ip, chair of the

SUCCESS Foundation said the agency has supported the visa application for Zhong’s mother to come to Vancouver from China to help take care of the two children. “The outpouring of financial support to the family within one month shows that our Metro Vancouver community does care for each other,” Ip said. “In addition to the management of the trust fund, we shall provide on-going support and assistance to the family.”

Donations can be made at any TD Bank branch and other financial institutions to the “SUCCESS Foundation in Trust – Yuzhe Zhong,” account number 004-9720-5240599 and transit number 9720. The other victim, Chinh (Vivian) Diem Huynh, was a single mother to a four-year-old daughter. SUCCESS officials said they had made an appeal through the Chinese media for her family to contact them if they need help but had yet to hear from them.

the sixth and final phase of a townhome development on Government Street in Burnaby, with completion scheduled for early 2013. “These thefts of materials and tools at our ReStores will only make it more financially challenging for the society and for our volunteers to complete these affordable homes for families in time,” Riessner said. Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver relies on donations of land, volunteers, construction materials and generous individual and corporate donors to build affordable homes for modest income families. Families chosen to purchase the homes work along with volunteers to build them or to help operate the two ReStores in Burnaby and Vancouver. Riessner said the Burnaby ReStore is working with police on ways to improve security and hope to deter thieves through public awareness of the crimes.

NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Housing and affordability

LAST WEEK:

Housing sales are steady in the Fraser Valley, even as they seem to be in a bit more of a decline in Metro Vancouver. Declines in sales activity and prices are more marked in Metro Van, but as neighbourhoods and Lower Mainland cities are so different, it is hard to paint with too broad a brush. Still, a few basic trends seem to be emerging. One is that, despite low interest rates, people seem to be unwilling to pay any more for housing. Prices have been going up for a long time and are now at the point where many working people simply can’t afford to buy. Another trend is an inability to qualify for a mortgage. The federal government has tightened up the amortization period for homes requiring Canada Mortgage and Housing mortgage insurance and that means bigger monthly payments. And that means some people simply can’t get into the market. A third trend is more intangible, but nonetheless valid. People have a sense that the economy isn’t doing nearly as well as it could, and even positive economic news does not entice them to go out and borrow a great deal of money. It’s a mug’s game to predict where the real estate market will go next, and that’s particularly true in this corner of the world. A bubble has been predicted for years. But just when it seems that prices have hit unsustainable levels, they have continued to rise. Yet interest rates have gone about as low as they can go. And this fall they are expected to rise, possibly two points, and there are indications that—failing another major stumble in the economy—the rates will jump another two points next spring. A cooling market seems inevitable. And if that lets more people have the opportunity to buy a decent home, it’s a welcome change. —Black Press

Hitting the information highway VICTORIA – By the time you read this I should be in Vanderhoof, the geographical centre of B.C., to visit relatives. Born in the Okanagan, raised in the Peace country and working for 20 years in Metro Vancouver, I’ve driven from one end of the province to the other more times than I can count. A similar trip last year began just as a huge mudslide was cleared near Chilliwack. Other drives have featured mid-summer hail piled 10 centimetres deep on the Coquihalla, a near miss between two moose in the Pine Pass, plus the usual blizzards and hundreds of traffic jams for construction, accidents and growing urban volume delays. This time I’ve got a new tool on board, the mobile version of DriveBC.ca on my BlackBerry. Launched two years, ago, the mobile site has taken off with the surging popularity of smartphones. In the past year, DriveBC’s online traffic averaged 1.2 million visits a month, about half to the five-year-old desktop site

Tom Fletcher tfletcher@blackpress.ca

and half from mobile users. It’s by far the most popular B.C. government website.  I asked DriveBC technical leader Nainesh Agarwal for these stats, and he said even he was surprised by the surge in mobile traffic in recent months. But trying out the mobile site, it’s easy to see the appeal. With a few clicks, the phone displays incident reports and web camera images for my chosen route. Webcams have been added steadily all over the province, and now watch 18 key locations on Vancouver Island, 93 in the Lower Mainland, 73 in the Southern Interior, 35 in the North and 13 at Canada-U.S. border crossings. At a glance, you can check anything from the traffic at the Lions Gate Bridge to the lineup for the Skidegate

ferry on Haida Gwaii. Most pictures update every two minutes, offering a real-time look at traffic, weather and road conditions. A recent addition is “replay the day,” which shows the last 24 hours of pictures in a few seconds. Another new feature is an email alert that can be customized. You can subscribe to a particular region or highway and receive notices as soon as they are posted to the DriveBC network. And of course there is an @drivebc Twitter feed, where between 6:30 a.m. and midnight, staff update conditions and respond to inquiries. (Major events are automatically tweeted overnight.) Verified reports are fed from highways staff and contractors all over the province and co-ordinated through the provincial highways condition centre in the Lower Mainland. It’s become a primary source of information for radio and TV traffic and news reporters around B.C. The mobile service now has an

option for drivers to report new problems they encounter. After determining your smartphone’s location, the site displays the name and phone number of the local maintenance contractor who can take the report. For those who haven’t joined the smartphone era, there is an old-fashioned option. Dialing 5-1-1 anywhere in the province gives access to a toll-free line that connects to recorded DriveBC messages. Agarwal said use of that service has been declining as phones with web access become more popular. The 5-1-1 service also requires you to use the keypad to select your route from a numerical list, so drivers would have to pull over rather than breach the new restrictions on using handheld devices while driving. The 5-1-1 system still gets surges of heavy use during major events like the recent flooding. The plan is to upgrade the system to allow voice recognition, so drivers can use headsets to get updates on the move.

COMMENT

A case for shark finning Re: Activists call for shark-fin ban (NewsLeader, June 22) It has been said that 73 million sharks are killed each year. Some people, like Mr. Anthony Marr, are calling for a ban on the use of shark fins. If shark fins are banned everywhere, shark hunting will cease to be an economic activity and the shark population will grow. I would like to ask Mr. Marr the following questions: • If the shark population keeps growing, what good will it bring to the human race? • If the shark population keeps dropping, what evil will it do to the human race? • How many fish do 73 million sharks consume, bearing in mind that sharks are warm blooded animals, requiring many calories to maintain their body temperature? I am not a scientist and have no access to research results, but assuming that each shark eats an average of 11 kg of fish a day, it will eat about four tonnes in a year. Then 73 million sharks would consume 300 million tonnes a year. I hope that people will consider these questions and points before continuing pushing for a ban on shark finning. There are other ways to cut down the killing of sharks. Henry Ho Burnaby

CounCil obstruCting progress I wholeheartedly support the Burnaby Board of Trade’s request to Burnaby city council that the city support the issuance of mobile business licences for businesses that operate in more than one city. I assume the primary licence would be issued where the business has its head office, and that participating cities would harmonize their bylaws and share the business licence fees. I also assume that the goal would be for mobile business licences to be valid throughout Metro Vancouver.  This is such a good idea I have trouble imagining how anyone could be opposed. However I didn’t reckon on the narrow and negative attitude of city council. Mayor Derek Corrigan complains that Vancouver, Surrey and Richmond are

planning a mobile business licence pilot project together but didn’t invite Burnaby to participate. I don’t suppose he considered phoning the mayors of those cities to ask if Burnaby could join. Mayor Corrigan also voiced concern that fly-by-night companies might have more leeway to cheat customers if enforcement requirements of each municipality weren’t clear. The answer is obvious; make enforcement requirements the same everywhere. Coun. Nick Volkow asked if they (offenders?) can be quickly put out of business. Again the answer is obvious; make the requirements the same everywhere. Then Coun. Paul McDonell wanted to know if the licences might be cheaper in one municipality. The answer is obviously no since otherwise the plan won’t work.  These comments are bordering on silly. This isn’t rocket science. Get with the program, council, and stop obstructing progress!  Garth Evans Burnaby

A tribute to steve I would like to pay a tribute to my neighbour Steve. On our hill most people take care of their properties. However, when you see a lawn where every blade is in place and you see very tall, immaculately trimmed hedges, you have found Steve’s place. His car and mini motorhome, usually out of sight in their respective garages, are in showroom floor condition. Every tool he owns has its place and, I bet, the rest of the house looks just the same.  Steve is in his eighties now and has been a widower for a number of years. The other day he admitted to me he has even less formal education than I have (that’s a tough act to follow). But he is totally aware of what is going on locally and has a keen interest in the rest of the world as well. He traveled North America extensively when he and his wife owned a larger motor home. When visiting Asia he must have been a favourite with his tour guides because he soaked up the sites and the various cultures like a sponge. Steve worked for the City of Burnaby and I am sure he

pulled his weight regardless of the assignments that came his way. To me he is the living example of what is possible to accomplish when you put your shoulder to the wheel. He built and lived in several houses, all within sight of one another. He not only lived within his means, but he also had sufficient cash at hand when another desirable lot became available. You may want to stop and talk to him when you drive by and see him fussing with the garden hose or a pair of clippers. These days you have to speak a little louder. You will soon realize, though, that here is a person totally self-sufficient and confident in himself. You may be lucky to know several Steves. But, to me this one is an outstanding individual. Ziggy Eckardt Burnaby

Coyotes must be brought in line Re: Burnaby resident warns pet owners of coyotes The Ministry of Environment’s response is unacceptable. First of all, coyotes are “proven to be a problem”—they are killing our pets on a daily basis. The Stanley Park Ecology Society, which promotes coyotes and promotes the “nothing can be done” lie alongside their MOE partner, made a big deal this week about the “havoc” created by a beaver in Stanley Park. What is that compared to the tragedy of dead pets? Front page news, apparently. There are two sets of rules here. Pets have a right to go out in safety, as do adults and children. People need to challenge the current policy. There are solutions. Coyotes can live in the 95 per cent of Canada that is not occupied by people. Cities are for people and pets.

Bear sightings up at SFU prompts call for caution Rash of sightings last week Wanda Chow

wchow@burnabynewsleader.com

A recent rash of bear sightings at Simon Fraser University’s Burnaby campus has officials reminding people to be careful with their garbage. In the week following July 7, there were six sightings, of which two involved a mother bear and two cubs at the south end of campus. “The other four sightings could have been the same bear for all we know,” said Don MacLachlan, SFU’s director of public affairs and media relations, Friday morning. “They happen from time to time. I don’t recall getting six sightings in a week before.” A seventh sighting occurred on Friday night, July 13, at 11:30 p.m., when a bear was spotted on South Campus Road by SFU facilities maintenance. Campus security searched for the bear but could not locate it. There are no plans to bring in conservation officers, said

MacLachlan, who stressed the bears are not being a nuisance or hurting anybody. “It’s up to us to avoid leaving our garbage lying around because that will tend to bring them closer to populated areas.” He speculated it may simply be berry season, and bears are out looking for food. “What else do bears do? They look for food. When they’re not sleeping, they’re eating,” he said. “But certainly we see bears regularly, we live on a mountain.” SFU is installing more bearproof garbage cans and encouraging people to use them and to properly dispose of their garbage in general. “We will never forget last fall when someone disposed of their Halloween pumpkin by putting it out on the deck,” said MacLachlan. “And of course the Halloween pumpkin aged gently, became more mature. The next thing you know you have a bear sitting on your deck eating pumpkin.” Then there was the student who, for whatever reason, put

a bucket of ice cream outside their home. “Guess what? Bears love ice cream.” But it’s not just the campus residents that are to blame, he stressed. “It only takes one chocolate bar wrapper or one discarded soft drink. Bears can smell food from a long way off, will come and look for it.” The bears are mostly being seen on the edge of campus, as they avoid populated areas. But they are driven by their noses. “No, they’re not wandering through Convocation Mall,” he said with a laugh. MacLachlan then recalled that a bear has indeed ended up there at least once in previous years, when it was spotted at, where else, a garbage can. “It’s closer than is comfortable.” Anyone who sees a bear at SFU should call campus security at 778-782-3100. Hikers on Burnaby Mountain should also take precautions. Info: http://bit.ly/cA949l.

VICTORIA – Veteran B.C. Liberal MLA Murray Coell has added his name to the list of politicians retiring from the B.C. legislature, as the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation renewed its criticism of the MLA pension plan. Coell, MLA for Saanich North and the Islands since 1996 will not stand for re-election next spring. Surrey-Tynehead MLA Dave Hayer announced the same decision last week, joining Burnaby-Lougheed MLA Harry Bloy, Vancouver-Fraserview MLA Kash Heed and Kamloops-North Thompson MLA Kevin Krueger in retirement from the B.C. Liberal caucus effective May 2013. On the NDP side, New Westminster MLA Dawn Black and Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows MLA Mike Sather have indicated they will complete their current terms and retire. Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation B.C. director Jordan Bateman used Hayer’s departure as an example of what the CTF calls gold-plated pension payouts available since the MLA plan was reinstated in 2007. The CTF calculates that Hayer will collect $47,600 the year he turns 65, increasing to $62,900 a year by the time he is 80 due to inflation protection. Coell served in several cabinet posts, most recently as labour minister after the 2009 election. Since pensions are based on an MLA’s highest three earning years, Bateman calculates that Coell’s pension will kick in at $89,000 a year. The CTF says taxpayers contribute $4 for each dollar paid by politicians. MLAs must serve six years to be eligible. If defeated before then, they get a 15-month severance. The return of the pension plan for B.C. MLAs was overshadowed by steep pay increases they approved in 2007. The B.C. Liberal government adopted recommendations of an independent committee that increased base pay for a backbench MLA 29 per cent to $98,000, with automatic cost-of-living increases.

Metro’s plants exempt ⫸

continued from Page a9

Metro’s discussion paper says smelly emissions can interfere with sleep, add to stress and anxiety, disrupt family barbecues and cause health impacts ranging from nausea and watery eyes to headaches and sore throats. It’s not the first time air quality regulators have tried to slap fees on stinky industries. But a previous effort by Metro to actually regulate or outlaw extreme odours was struck down by an environmental appeal board. This time, the region is just trying to recover costs through

fees, rather than trying to enforce limits. Robb said the odour response costs are being unfairly borne either by other air polluters through fees on their contaminants or else by taxpayers. The region is seeking feedback on the plan and the Metro board would have to vote on any bylaw imposing the fees. Metro’s own sewage treatment plants would be exempt from the odour fees. Robb said they aren’t subject to Metro’s air quality rules because they are regulated separately by the province.

Court blocks reversal of roadside drunk driving penalties Affected drivers had hoped to win back fines, other costs

Law Group, said an appeal is under consideration, but added the ruling is a blow to the chances of 700 other clients who had so far signed up for a proposed class action lawsuit. “There are a lot of people who cannot afford to pay $4,000 or $5,000 to get their driver’s licence back,” he said. Solimano said many of the affected drivers had been waiting for possible retroactive relief and still have not yet undertaken costly requirements such as attending a responsible driving program or installing an ignition interlock.

It was just very plain and simple but it was very unique.” Participants come out for the love of cars, she said. They enjoy showing off their vehicles and all the work they’ve put into them, listening to people’s reactions to their prized possessions, and talking with other like-minded classic car owners. Rather than the usual plaques, the event offers glass trophies to prize winners, said Game, who invited people to cast their votes for the people’s choice award.

EDMONDS STREET – CANADA WAY TO KINGSWAY

See you at the

Edmond’s City Fair and Car Show

Edmonds City Fair returns Sunday Wanda Chow

wchow@burnabynewsleader.com

The Edmonds City Fair returns to Edmonds Street this Sunday, July 22, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. between Kingsway and Canada Way. As it has for the last couple years, the fair will be combined with the Edmonds Classic Car Show. This time, the cars will be interspersed with the event’s other offerings to spread out the crowds and give people a variety of attractions to look at, said event organizer Paul McDonell. The mainstage will be located at New Vista Place, near the Edmonds fire hall and will feature the annual youth talent show. Also near the Canada Way end of the event site will be the petting zoo, and rides will be located between the fire hall and Mary Avenue. Save-On-Foods is back with a barbecue on Humphries Avenue, with food offered at bargain prices, mainly to reduce waste, said McDonell. The Burnaby RCMP command vehicle will be on site, as will the Tzu Chi Foundation, and possibly ecosculptures from the Burnaby parks department. For years held in Richmond Park (recently renamed Edmonds Park), the event was moved to Edmonds Street a few years ago due to construction of the new Edmonds Community Centre scheduled to open early next year, and redevelopment of the park.

Teen talent show a stepping stone Focus on fun at community event Wanda Chow

wchow@burnabynewsleader.com

Burnaby and New Westminster youth will be entertaining the community while honing their performance skills at the Edmonds City Fair Talent Search, being held Sunday, July 22, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. About a dozen youth, 19 and under, will perform a variety of acts, from singing and dancing to playing guitar, said Jeff Scheffel, the talent show coordinator. As of Monday, there were 10 entries, with the youngest being a nineyear-old vocalist. “It’s just a great opportunity to get used to performing in front of a large crowd,” Scheffel said. The focus is on fun without a lot of pressure while promoting youth participation and building camaraderie among the young performers. “It’s a good stepping stone [for other events].” Scheffel noted that he has recruited participants who have performed at similar events, and the same could happen for performers at the Edmonds show. Jahlil Dulay, 13, will perform Sunday, for instance, after he was one of the winners of last year’s Burnaby’s

Got Talent show for his hip-hop singing and dancing. Participants will be vying for prizes of gift cards for Lougheed Town Centre. First place gets a $100 card, second gets $75 and the third place prize is a $50 card. The show goes rain or shine at the mainstage on Edmonds

at New Vista Place, near the Edmonds fire hall. Entry is free. The deadline to enter is the end of the day on Wednesday, July 18. To enter, or for more information, call Jeff at 604-294-5533 or email volunteerburnaby@gmail.com.

There was a country tune some years ago which included a line, “I turned to a stranger just like a friend.” The singer, presumably, had become so isolated that he just wanted someone to talk to. One of the key indicators of social maturity is the wisdom to know when it is time to share personal aspects of our life with someone. In general, trust is the key factor. After all, if we are willing to revel something personal, we expect it be held in confidence. There is also a mutuality involved which provides balance to the communication. If, for example, you were to tell a new friend about, say, a problem you were experiencing in your marriage and she told you absolutely nothing about her marriage, challenging or otherwise, you would likely refrain from being so open with her. Trust also relates to the belief that you can expect to receive some intelligent counsel: that the person to whom you are sharing has the capacity to actually be helpful. In the case of your co-workers, these women have likely worked together for some time and it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that you are the newest hire. They already have a measure of trust and they probably socialize outside of work.

You are present during their conversations—presumably in the lunchroom or at your work stations—and so now they are almost certainly experiencing a feelings of inequality with you. (It makes them uncomfortable.) That sense of difference can only be reduced if they believe you trust them enough to share comparable details about your personal life. While it is acceptable not to feel comfortable opening up more to them at this time, you will need to consider being somewhat less guarded should your friendship develop. I would recommend you selectively reveal some aspects of your life—in context with

the discussion—but don’t feel any pressure any divulge secrets or matters which you would not wish shared generally. You say you get along with them—which is great—but in your desire to be accepted, don’t abandon your own standards for what is appropriate to disclose. As the relationship progresses, you may feel more comfortable doing so, but allow trust to grow naturally and you’ll feel better about what you reveal.

Q

: I work in a small office with four other women. We get along well but they talk a lot about their private lives. They expect me to be just as open although I’m not comfortable with being that intimate. What can I say to them?
