Soccer pride on the line at Nations Cup

Shady Island could become part of city’s dike system Analysis begins of different approaches to deal with rising sea levels, threats of storm surge, high tides by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter

Don Fennell photo Jeff Wilson (centre) turned his attention from tournament organizer to game participant Sunday at the Nations Cup soccer tournament. Wilson suited up for Scotland’s over-30 team in their 1-0 semifinal win over Italy but passed on its 1-0 final-game victory over India. For more, see Page 14.

Some potentially viewspoiling decisions will be made at city hall in the coming months and years as the city begins planning on how it will brace itself against the threat of rising sea levels and the damage posed by storm surges and high tides. At Monday’s council meeting, staff presented a report on the first phase of the Dike Master Plan, which will look at necessary fortifications against flood threats in Steveston and the southern West Dike area. The work, once approved, would be done over the course of many decades. The master plan is intended to protect the city from ocean storm surges and the Fraser River freshet, and help the city adapt to rising sea level. A 49-kilometre system of

sea and river dikes are the backbone of Richmond’s flood protection infrastructure. Creating a master plan for the Steveston area is a “priority,” and the lack of such a plan hinders development, the report by John Irving, director of engineering for the city, said. Armed with a $200,000 budget to study the issue, the city hired Delcan/DHV as the lead consultant of the effort. And Delcan came up with two primary dike alignment solutions, one of which would incorporate Shady Island as part of a new dike structure, the other to raise dikes in their current alignment. Using the existing dikes and simply raising them is problematic because of a lack of space, conflict with utilities and development and construction scheduling, the report to council states. If the city opts to make Shady Island part of its diking system, the Steveston Harbour would be enclosed on both its eastern and western ends by “gates or other structures that would close the channel during combined high tides and storm surge events,” the report states.

Hospital takes major leap into medical research Richmond becomes first in province to include research as core health care activity by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter The first phase of medical research at Richmond Hospital will begin with a focus on the frail elderly and the long-term impact multiple medications have on them. Dr. Scott Garrison, who was recently appointed medical director for research for Vancouver Coastal Health-Richmond, is wondering whether reducing the number of medications that seniors take will ultimately result in healthier people and an improved quality of life. “Nobody in the world had has done a trial like that in a community population,” Garrison said Monday. A similar trial at a nursing home in Israel resulted in a 50 per cent reduction in mortality, he said. Last week’s announcement that Garrison will head up medical research at Richmond Hospital, means the local community hospital is the first in B.C. to focus on research. Garrison said he’ll be dedicating half his time to research and grant applications, the remainder on the family practice he has maintained in the city for more than 15 years. Another study he hopes to lead in Richmond is whether increased physical and mental stimulation among patients while in hospital is beneficial. “For the elderly, a hospital is a good place to be sick, but a bad place to get well,” Garrison said. While hospitals are very good for saving your life, Garrison said no hospitals are geared toward patients and keeping them physically and mentally active while in hospital. So what he envisions is enlisting Richmond’s strong volunteer community, along with the

family of patients, in a program that keys on keeping patients fit and stimulated while in hospital. During hospital stays, recovering elderly patients are often prescribed plenty of bed rest, but that translates into individuals who upon their release from hospital are often too weak to live independently. Garrison said he’s just putting the finishing touches on a grant application, seeking funding that will pay for research assistants to look at the issue of the elderly and pharmaceuticals. Natalie Meixner, president of the Richmond Hospital Foundation, said she’s excited about the partnership with the Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute which will fund Garrison’s research. Meixner said there’s lots of other research that doctors in hospitals could be conducting that can translate into benefits for patients at home. The new research mandate at Richmond Hospital means local donors have the opportunity to support research that stands to have a meaningful impact on the way healthcare is delivered at the hospital. “We are really excited about this partnership and being able to open the doors to our donors.” Research of this type has the potential to impact thousands of lives, Meixner said. In her brief time at the helm of the hospital foundation, Meixner said she’s been impressed by the “culture of innovation” at the hospital, and the “culture of people working collaboratively.” Meixner said hiring a medical research director was the idea of Richmond Hospital’s CEO, Susan Wannamaker. The exciting thing, Richmond Hospital Foundation spokesperson Chad Pederson said, is that the focus is on practice-based research, leading to results which can be directly applicable to the provision of care and service in the community. Garrison will be leading efforts to study what’s known as polypharmacy reduction, also known as deprescribing.

Dr. Scott Garrison is researching whether reducing the number of medications that seniors take will ultimately result in healthier people and an improved quality of life.

The research will look at patients who receive multiple medications, and will attempt to determine whether better outcomes can be reached with fewer prescriptions.

Garrison will promote Richmond as a centre of clinical research in the Lower Mainland, and will encourage other research projects at the hospital.

McMath teen turns ship into classroom From watching out for pirates to riding camels, eight-month sea adventure was life-changing for Nadia Dale by Jamie Peng Contributor


adia Dale is a 16-year old girl R.A. McMath Secondary student. She’s also an experienced sailor who has traveled around the world.

Devin Schultz photo Nadia Schultz climbs the rigging aboard the SS Sorlandet.

Having lived on a majestic threemasted Norwegian tall ship for eight months has cultivated her into a seafarer, explorer, and allround adventurer. Dale was one of the 42 students who recently completed their voyage with Class Afloat, a program for students in Grade 11 to firstyear university. The program takes students aboard a tall ship for eight months, travelling to 22 destinations around the world and teaching them everything from their tradi-

tional school courses to seamanship to global citizenship. Dale is proud to have taken on this life-changing experience, which she had dreamed of since she was a child. At the age of 8, Dale was first inspired by her swim coach, who had attended Class Afloat. “The ship was in Steveston and he took us on a tour,” she recounted. “Since then, I knew I wanted to join.” Dale applied for the program despite protests from her parents. But when news came that she had received a full scholarship worth $42 500, her parents were as excited as she was. “They were really proud of the accomplishment,” she said. Stepping aboard the SS Sorlandet for the first time was a groundbreaking event for Dale. “I was so amazed by everything and was looking forward to everything,” she said. “The first night, I didn’t sleep. I was just lying in my bunk with a smile on my face.” Dale had no trouble making friends while living among 41 other students, known as “Floaties,” who shared a common dream of sailing across the Atlantic. She wrote in her blog, “although

we have only been together for a short time, everybody is already like brothers, sisters and best friends.” Being aboard the ship meant adapting to a completely new lifestyle, and the life of a Floatie was no picnic. “It was a really big change. You had to wake up every morning, do cleaning stations, do night watch. We were always tired, often hungry, and always busy and physically active,” Dale said. However, she admitted that every moment of the voyage was as rewarding as the next. Travelling the globe created awe-inspiring experiences every time they landed ashore. Dale rode camels in the Sahara, stood guard against pirates while along the Amazon River, and watched 1,200 dolphins swim by in Fernando de Noronha, Brazil. These experiences have changed Dale’s perspective on life. “We learned to go to countries with an open mind and do things that the locals would do. Now that I’m back I really want to explore Vancouver,” she said. To learn more about Class Afloat, visit To read more on Dale’s voyage, visit her blog at

City doesn’t have Shady Island jurisdiction

Meat, Fire, Yum winner

From Page 1 Another option being explored is closing the eastern opening of the channel, though the impact of that on the ecology must still be examined, the report states. If Shady Island were to become part of the dike, that would come with many benefits: •low community disruption; •relatively easy to raise in the future; •minimises ground improvement impacts to existing buildings and infrastructure; •minimises impact on village character and heritage assets. Among the challenges is the fact that the city does not have jurisdiction over land use on Shady Island. Using the existing dike location is made easier since the city owns the land and rights of ways, and can build the structure in pieces and use temporary infrastructure for effective flood proofing. But construction would lead to high community disruption, will result in further disruptions if the dike needs to be raised in the future, and the ground improvement may impact existing buildings and infrastructures. At the same time, using the current dike location would have a “high impact on existing village character and heritage assets,” the report states. As far as the cost of the project, it would be in the millions of dollars, though no figures were mentioned in the staff report, other than a mention that “initial cost estimates are similar for both options.”

Richmond software firm fined $100,000 for tax evasion software Learning doesn’t stop

Math French

just because school is out

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A prominent Richmond software developer found guilty of fraud over $5,000 late last month in B.C. Supreme Court, was ordered Friday to pay a $100,000 fine for helping businesses evade taxes. InfoSpec Systems Inc., which currently goes by the name Profitek, located at 2688 Shell Rd., near Bridgeport Road, was convicted in connection with the sale of electronic sales suppression software, otherwise known as the zapper, which is designed to work with point-of-sale systems and electronic cash registers to erase sales records. The guilty finding against InfoSpec brings to two the number of convictions in connection with the company. In December of 2010, InfoSpec salesperson David Au was convicted of one count of fraud over $5,000 and was sentenced to

two years and six months in jail. According to the B.C. Supreme Court, Au continued to sell the software even when he knew Canada Revenue Agency was conducting an investigation. “It is particularly aggravating that Mr. Au continued to sell the zapper to customers after he became aware of the CRA investigation of InfoSpec and attempted to assist his customers to evade detection during the CRA’s audits. As a consequence, Mr. Au’s actions are highly blameworthy and attract a sentence that both denounces his misconduct and acts as a general and specific deterrent for him and like-minded others,” B.C. Supreme Court Justice Catherine J. Bruce said. Details of Au’s case were previously banned from publication by the court. The court found that Pius Chan, president of InfoSpec, was the “directing mind of the corporation”

and that he “intended to defraud the public by providing or distributing a zapper program that allowed customers to suppress income and thereby evade tax. Infospec sells computers and software to restaurants and retail outlets. In December of 2010, Vancouver restaurateur Woei Kwong Teo received a conditional sentence of 20 months house arrest and fined $142,934 for tax evasion. Others charged with evading taxes at four sushi restaurants in Vancouver and North Vancouver were: Bo Ping He, Yun Mei He and Yi Ming Jiang of Sushi Man Japanese Restaurants, Qian Jing Zeng of Kitsilano Sushi Japanese Restaurant and Woei Kwong Teo of Honjin Sushi Japanese Restaurant and Honjin Sushi Japanese Restaurant. Infospec was founded in 1985 by home-based software developer Cindy Chan.

Trading halted after local firm’s value soars 20 times


B.C. Securities Commission investigating unusual trading activity involving Forum National Investments Ltd.

For breaking news

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A Richmond-based firm is under investigation by the B.C. Securities Commission after its value (market capitalization) suddenly went from $6 million to $120 million. The commission has issued a temporary order and notice of hearing against Forum National Investments Ltd. and president Daniel Clozza, chief financial officer Martin Tutschek and shareholder Grant Curtis. A halt trade order was initially issued on June 28, and that was followed up by a temporary order and a notice of hearing, the commission said Friday in a press release. The temporary order bars all trading and transferring of the shares of Forum National Investments Ltd., which trades on the Over-the-Counter bulletin board market in the U.S. In the notice of hearing, securities commission staff express their concern with the “unusual trading

volume and price increase for shares of Forum National that took place between May and June of 2012. Staff is also concerned with apparent attempts to violate or circumvent the halt trade order by transferring or issuing shares of Forum National,” the commission said in the press release. During the sudden increase in trading volume and price, Forum National was the subject of an Internet promotional campaign funded by undisclosed individuals, and the company issued seven news releases related to the expansion of its “viatical settlement business.” The allegations against the company have not been proven. The commission is the independent provincial government agency responsible for regulating trading in securities within B.C. On April 11, Forum National’s share price was US $0.15 and the trading volume was 110,000, and the firm’s market capitalization was about US $6.3 million on 42.4 million shares outstanding. On July 18, the firm’s shares closed at US $2.80, on 43.1 million outstanding shares, giving it a market capitalization of US $120 million. During the internet promotion, some internet stock promotion websites stated that more than $650,000 had been spent to promote Forum National, though who funded the campaign wasn’t disclosed. The internet promotion predicted a significant increase in share price, projecting a target of US $10 per

During the relevant period, accounts in the names of individuals associated with Clozza engaged in significant trades, including Clozza’s 74-year-old mother, who bought 98,600 shares and sold 314,600 shares for gross profits of $121,679. Curtis’ account received a transfer of one million shares, he bought an additional 54,275 shares and sold 735,625 shares for gross profits of $738,041. After the June 28 halt trade order, Clozza and Tutschek attended Forum National’s transfer agent in Vancouver on July 5, 2012, and allegedly carried with them certificates representing about 2.7 million shares of Forum National, with some of the certificates in the names of Curtis and Tutschek. The notice of hearing alleges that Clozza instructed a transfer agent to “overnight” transfer the share certificates into the name of a Bahamian company by way of a U.S. brokerage firm. This transfer agent informed the commission. A hearing has been scheduled for Tuesday, July 31 in Vancouver.

EDITORIAL: Keeping calm in the face of tragedy


ews on the street lately has been pretty


Twelve people shot to death in a Colorado movie theatre Thursday night. Two people, including a 14-year-old girl, killed at a Toronto house party, just weeks after two died in a shooting at the same city’s Eaton Centre mall. Closer to home, four people – including three from the same family – died after a mudslide swept through Johnson’s Landing in rural B.C. July 12. Thursday, a young German Shepherd died after being left in a Vancouver dumpster. The tragic and heartwrenching – and, sadly, incomplete – list is enough to make one’s head spin; to make some question what is going on in the world, in their community and even in their neighbour’s backyard. It may even give some pause; hesitation to do things – like go to a new movie, for example – that normally would be done without a second thought, for fear of being added to that ugly list. Tragedy, we know, is not a new thing. It is seen,

Life Lessons Andrea Phillpotts

The results were life changing. My greatest fear as we headed out to the Tsawassen ferry terminal from Richmond was not being crashed on by mammoth waves, getting bitten by a shark, or having my board club me on the head, it was looking ridiculous. Surfers were almost mythological creatures with taut bodies and suntans, not suburban mommies with a bit of a soft middle. This was a sport for the young. But surfing was the adventure planned for this

summer and I wanted to show my daughters that you should never be afraid to try something new. So I swallowed my fear and headed west. We’d elected to enroll in a Surf Sister camp in Tofino. I’d rationalized that female instructors would be a bit easier on me. Although I’d been swimming laps for months at Watermania, I still wasn’t close to bikini shape. While I was right about how physically challenging surfing would be, my other fears would evaporate like sea mist in the sun. Surfing was breathtaking. We suited up in thick wetsuits that made me feel like a seal, imperme-

able to the cold Pacific water. After safety and technique lessons on shore, we hit the waves. Within minutes, my nieces and daughters were riding the waves like water spirits. It would take a day longer to heave my body up on the board into a standing position but I did it! Riding that eight foot board taught me and my body that nothing was impossible even if I were no longer 20 years old. At one point, floating on my board past the breakers and looking at the vista around me, I became philosophical. I remembered so many lessons from the past: how nature is so beautiful, how we have to respect the planet, how

we need to grab each opportunity life throws us (like the perfect wave coming towards us.) There’s a saying that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. After this summer’s surfing experience, I’d change this to “you must teach an old dog new tricks to keep it young.” The lessons I learned from this challenge are ones I’ll keep with me forever; I’m already looking forward to my next session.

letters Try smiling at someone Editor: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Does it hurt to say hello?â&#x20AC;? July 13. I would like to congratulate Jo Anne Gray on her very timely and articulate letter regarding the unfriendliness we are currently encountering in our local community. This is my daily experience as well! I frequently walk the trails and boardwalks around Steveston and the South Dyke, and seldom get any response to

Enforce smoking laws

my greetings. I think this is a very sad reďŹ&#x201A;ection on our social condition. People have become so self-involved and insular, so obsessed with their electronic gadgets, that they cannot even manage eye-contact, let alone a smile. It seems so ironic in this day and age of apparent â&#x20AC;&#x153;ultraâ&#x20AC;? communication with all our cell phone use, texting, etc., that in fact, we are really communicating less

and less on a personal level. This can only spell disaster for us in years to come. So please, everyone who reads this, just try smiling at or even greeting someone you encounter next time you are out and aboutâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you may never know the difference that could make to someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day. What have you got to lose? Carlie Holland Steveston

Kudos to TransLink, boos to the B.C. government Editor: There are two items that have been on the news for the past few days that have gotten my attention. The ďŹ rst is the decision of the TransLink board to reverse its decision to discontinue the TaxiSaver program. TaxiSavers will continue

to be sold by TransLink! Thank you and a big kudo to you for doing the right thing, sooner rather than later. To the B.C. government for its Port Mann Bridge ads (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Am I excited about the new bridge? Oh yeahâ&#x20AC;?). That will cost us taxpayers more

continued on to mention the subject of smoking. He said that students may smoke during the break, but only at the smoke area outside school boundaries. Now obviously this shocked me quite a bit. How could the principal allow students, clearly under the age of 19, to smoke? Now every time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m walking along the streets, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but notice the numerous amounts of underage smokers.

Editor: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure that the majority of people who live in Richmond are aware that the legal smoking age is 19 years old, but is it really being enforced? Is there really a point to such a law anymore? Whenever Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m somewhere outdoors, I see kids, who are clearly underage, smoking at public areas. But what really drew my attention to this topic, was an announcement the principal made on my ďŹ rst day of Summer School at Burnett. It started off with the usual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Welcome to schoolâ&#x20AC;? speech, but he then

food The dated but endearing Bob’s Submarine Sandwiches

365 Days of Dining Lindsay Anderson


s many of you know (because I talk about it often), I used to cook for tree planters.

I spent four summers up in the woods of northern B.C., surrounded by young men and women with appetites bigger than the bears who sometimes wandered into our camp. I have fond memories of those hot summers in the kitchen, and sigh whenever a white Ford F350 drives past, though that’s a rare down occurrence here. Recently, however, I walked into a restaurant and saw a bunch of visivested men eating large plates of food. I smiled and thought to myself “Huh! This feels a lot like camp!”

Where was I? The Richmond institution that is Bob’s Submarine Sandwiches (6390 No. 3 Rd.). This shop is filled each lunch hour by guys who work hard and eat harder. They come to Bob’s because it offers no-nonsense meals like bacon and eggs, burgers and fries, fried chicken, and subs, all at relatively inexpensive prices. It’s not the first place you should consider taking your vegan cousin visiting from L.A., but there are vegetarian options available. Also, there’s likely to be at least a few other female patrons around; it’s not solely a Man’s House of Meat and Cheese. But it kind of is. I ordered the Super Sub. Why? Because a) I like things that are super; b) The 6’ 5” 250 pound man in front of me ordered it, and c) it was recommended by other blogs. Why is it super? Because it’s filled with double steak, double cheese, mushrooms, fried onions, salami, capicollo, lettuce, and tomato, all for $5.90 (6

Unlike so many corporately-monitored sandwich chains, Bob’s is dated but endearing; it’s weathered many years, has laugh-lines, history, and character. Next time I’m with a group of tree planters, I’m totally taking them there.

inch) or $11.80 (12 inch). While the man in front of me went for the 12 inch, I opted for half that size. I’m not 16 years old anymore and yes, I did kind of eat like a 250 pound man when I was 16. Even in its ‘baby’ size, the Super Sub is filling. It’s also messy; the fillings are hot so the cheese melts, the bun gets soggy, and things fall out. You’ve got to grab that thing with both hands and not let go.

Forget your phone! Forget your napkin! Forget about looking classy! Unless you’re an extremely confident eater of meatstuffed subs, Bob’s is probably not the place to go on a first date. I wish the bun had been a little more sturdy, and the meat was by no means the best quality, but it was still a satisfying sandwich. This is comfort food made by friendly and extremely hard-working women.

Lindsay Anderson is dining out at 365 Richmond eateries in 365 days and blogging about the experience for Tourism Richmond. See www.365daysofdining. com for Anderson’s blog.

Led by the seeminglyageless Randy Nohr at point guard, the X-Falcons are coming off a secondstraight men’s championship win over the Athelite—last year by a score of 80-65. Now in his mid30s, the much-decorated Nohr has led the X-Falcons to the final each of the last five years during which he’s earned three MVP honours. The X-Falcons also won the men’s title in 2007 and 2008 before bowing to Seattle’s Home Team in 2009. Border Patrol, meanwhile,

recently won their third consecutive Elite Division championship at Spokane Hoopfest, the largest threeon-three tournament in the world. Watson earned MVP honours for the second year in a row competing against former stalwarts from such U.S. schools as Stanford. One of her teammates at Hoopfest was Lindsey Wilson, the former Iowa State star who is also planning a return to this weekend’s Dolphin Classic. “It’s hard to compare the two events, since three-onthree is a half-court game,” says Watson. “But every year Dolphin gets more and more competitive. We had a tight final game against the UBC alum last year and I expect them to have a really good team again. The whole goal is to show how competitive women can play and I think every year it gets better. It’s a great opportunity to promote the women’s game and show it off and there’s no better place because it’s such a social environment. I think a lot of people walk away impressed.” Besides Watson and Wilson, Border Patrol will feature former University of Washington Huskie Sara Mosiman and ex-Seattle Pacific players Daesha Henderson and Libby Magnuson. They’re scheduled to play their first game at the three-day Dolphin Classic against the Birds Friday at 7 p.m. See Page 14

Getting to know RCC’s new chair


Barry Grabowski provides insight about himself and his role at the Chamber WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 8

Q: How long have you been active in the Richmond Chamber of Commerce? A: I have been a member since 1987, when I first opened a law practice in Richmond. Q: What inspired you to become a member? A: My business partner and I were both new to Richmond; we joined the Chamber to meet fellow business people as well as to support an organization that represents the business community in Richmond. Q: Why do you think networking is important for business people? A: People prefer to do business with people they know, like and trust. This comes from building relationships; networking, properly done, builds relationships with people and over time that leads to business opportunities. Q: How have you seen the Richmond Chamber of Commerce benefit your practice? A: I have become better informed about Richmond and the issues facing the businesses and residents of Richmond through the resources of the Chamber. The more I know and understand, the better advice I am able to provide my clients. As well, being involved in the Chamber has increased my visibility to other business owners. Q: What is your favourite thing about Richmond? A: When I first decided to practice law in Richmond, one of the features that attracted me was the ‘livability’ of Richmond. It is a balanced community, with many excellent community amenities. Q: Best bike path in Richmond? A: I think it is great that you can cycle all the

way from Steveston to Vancouver via the bike lane that runs continuously along Railway, Granville, and Garden City to the Canada Line Bridge. Q: What is your favourite Richmond event? A: The Steveston Salmon Festival is a great community event. The Chamber has had floats in the parade in the past; it’s fun to see the Salmon Festival parade from the perspective of a participant. Q: Favourite sport or team? A: My favourite sport to watch is hockey; I’ve always remained loyal to my home town Edmonton Oilers. Thankfully, we enjoyed success in the past, so I’ve experienced the joy of celebrating a Stanley Cup that Vancouver Canucks fans are hoping to feel some day. Q: Do you think social media is here to stay in the business world? Why or why not? A: Social media is here to stay. The generations coming up are fully immersed in social media. As they are both future consumers and future business owners, they will use the media they are most familiar with to communicate. Q: What do you think is the greatest challenge facing the business community in Richmond? A: There are many challenges facing business, one is the availability of affordable land. This affects the business owner, looking for affordable premises from which to conduct business, and the work force, looking for an affordable place to live so they can live and work in the same community. Q: What are the advantages of being a member of the RCC? A: At a basic level, the Chamber offers many

opportunities for members to network and grow their business. In addition, the Chamber, by raising the concerns of business owners through our policy and advocacy activities, is Barry Grabowski, working to build Chair of the Richmond a better business Chamber of Commerce environment for all of our members. The Richmond Chamber of Chamber is a relevant business organization in Richmond and I believe that being a member of the Chamber, in and of itself, adds credibility to one’s business. Q: What do you hope to accomplish in your year as Chair of the RCC? A: The Chamber has been successful in developing strategies and initiatives to benefit our members. We are becoming more proactive in developing positions on policy issues that affect Richmond businesses; creating opportunities for our members to grow their business; and improving our communication of these strategies and initiatives to our members and the community at large. My goal is for the chamber to build on these successes and solidify our position as a pre-eminent community organization within Richmond.

Earned media techniques for small businesses arned media refers to the publicity your business receives, that does not relate to a direct marketing or advertising campaign you have run. A common example of earned media is publicity gained from a press release or a positive editorial in a newspaper about your company. In contrast, direct marketing and advertising would include social media marketing and print advertisements. Earned media can be extremely powerful as it is perceived as third party validation for your business. So how can you get this working for you? The following are a few earned media techniques to get you started. Offer free products to the right people Although giving free products away can dent your revenue, they can be a great way of expanding your business and gaining the attention of new customers. You just need to offer them to the right people. Contact radio broadcasters and personalities, television broadcasters, bloggers and article writers who review products or would be willing to talk about your products publicly after giving them a try. The best way to do this is to contact them personally and offer your products or services for free. In return, they will (hopefully) spread the word about your business. Be sure however, that you don’t


ask for a review, as this can put them into an awkward ethical dilemma. To your customers, their word will mean a lot, especially if they have a fan base and people who listen to them or read their articles on a regular basis. Shareable coupons Another earned media technique is to offer coupons on social media websites or in print ads. This can generate a great deal of positive energy as friends share with other friends about the great deal they’ve discovered. Offer coupons on your Facebook and Twitter pages, and encourage consumers to pass the coupons along to friends. In doing so, the consumers are spreading the word because they want their friends, your new customers, to enjoy the coupons and deals as well. Not only are your customers spreading

RCC announces new ambassador

the word about the coupons, they are also providing free advertising for your business, helping you find new regular customers. Brand champions Often you will run into a customer who is crazy about your products and services. Partner with them and encourage them to share the love. This individual will have direct experience with you and their peers will be much more likely to trust their opinion. Even if you don’t get a direct sale, lots of new people get exposed to your brand. Community events Get involved in your community and sponsor an event. This is an excellent way to build rapport locally and can garner massive positive energy for your brand. The key is to get involved in an area of the community that either is of high importance or relates to your brand clearly. For example, you may have a large problem with homelessness in your area, so you may sponsor a job-training event. If you own a music store, you could sponsor an event designed to put instruments into the hands of troubled teens. There are many imaginative ways to gain earned media. The key is to be intentional with your approach and strategy. Pick at least one strategy and commit. See what works for you and build on that approach.

Irish turn back the clock at Nations Cup Former Richmond league teammates lead victory over China in newly-formed over-52 division by Don Fennell Sports Editor Teammates for three decades in the Richmond Senior Soccer League, Dennis Irwin, Jon Young and Don Taylor enjoyed a triumphant reunion at last weekend’s Nations Cup. Playing for Ireland because of their ancestry, the former Campbell and Pound Sounders helped their newest club to a 3-2 victory over China in the inaugural Over-52 men’s division final Sunday at Hugh Boyd Park. Irwin and Young both converted their penalty kicks which decided the outcome. “It was neat coming together with guys you may have played with or against in the past,” says Taylor, adding the Irish team consisted of players from throughout the Lower Mainland. Many of the players, he adds, remain active in the game by participating in the numerous over-50 leagues that have popped up throughout the region in the last few years. Taylor, who is one of those players, figures there must be at least 40 teams in all. “They’re just thriving and I think it’s because us baby boomers recognize we can and should stay organized and active,” he says. “When we were 25 or 30 it wasn’t in our consciousness and when we got to 35 and 40 we were preparing to wrap it up because there was only open age. Then the over-30 divisions came to be and all of a sudden that helped encourage guys to stay in soccer even longer.” Though by Monday morning Taylor and his colleagues were feeling the affects of their labour (which included a 2-0 win over Scotland at 1-0 victories over India and China), he says they’ll soon be ready to take to pitch again. “Playing at this age is pretty hard on

the joints but the motivation to stay fit is greater,” says Taylor, 56. “There’s nothing like having purpose and while you maybe take the game or conditioning for granted when in you’re in your

30s, when you’re older you appreciate both more. I might be as fit now as I’ve been because I have to be. I see myself continuing to play at some level and why not because other guys are do-

ing so into the 60s and even 70s, plus the experience continues to enrich my life.” •Germany scored a goal in the second half of extra time Sunday to earn a 2-1

victory over first-time finalist Iran in the men’s Open Division final. Germany held a 1-0 lead at half, before Iran tied it up midway through the second half of regulation. Germany blanked Italy 2-0 in one semifinal, while Iran needed to go deep in penalty kicks to eliminate Canada 2-1 in the other. Ireland won its second consecutive women’s title by blanking Canada 2-0, while Scotland took both the over-30 and over-38 men’s titles by edging India 1-0 and Germany 2-0 respectively. Ireland, which won last year’s Open Division title, took top honours in the Over-45 Division by edging Fiji 3-2 on penalty kicks. Attendance was down a little Sunday compared to previous years, a fact Nations Cup Society president Jeff Wilson, who oversaw the tournament organizing committee, attributed at least partly to fans being torn between attending the tournament or the Vancouver Whitecaps-San Jose Earthquakes Major League Soccer game at BC Place Stadium. India’s early elimination in the men’s Open Division didn’t help attendance figures either. India is always well-supported, said Wilson, who hopes the progress of Iran to the Open Division final will produce more interest in the Persian community in the future. Besides his tournament duties, Wilson also suited up for Scotland and helped the tartan-clan team to the men’s Over38 Division championship. •Germany’s Garth Lagasse (men) and Ireland’s Stephanie Tiebert (women) were selected the MVPs in their respective Open Divisions. Meysam Soltani of Iran was the top goal scorer, and John Poli of Italy the top defender. •More photos online at

Kaufmanis set to join junior nationals Juliana Kaufmanis will be suiting up for the University of B.C. Thunderbirds women’s volleyball team when the school year begins in September. But before that, the 2012 R.A. McMath Secondary grad will play for Canada’s junior na-

tional team. She was selected to the squad after representing the B.C. provincial teams with distinction at the national team Challenge Cup in Winnipeg last week, leading B.C. Red to a fourth-place finish. The Canadian junior

national team will train in Winnipeg until Aug. 18. “We are thrilled that Dani (Brisebois of Oakville, Ont, who’ll also be attending UBC) and Julianna were both selected to the junior team,” said UBC head coach

Doug Reimer. “I am not surprised as I feel that both have the potential to contribute at the national team level. The additional training with strong coaching and high level competition will of course be very helpful for them prior to start-

ing their first years with the T-Birds.” Brisebois and Kaufmanis make up two-thirds of this year’s recruiting class for the five-time Canadian Interuniversity Sport champion UBC women’s volleyball team.

Seattle hoop talent will be prevalent at this weekend’s Dolphin Classic

Don Fennell photo Randy Nohr is poised to return for more hoop fun at the 2012 Dolphin Classic.

From Page 4 The X-Falcons, slated to play their first game versus SFU Friday at 8 p.m., epitomize savvy. And no one epitomizes it more than Nohr. Taking nothing away from his athleticism, his greatest strength is his basketball I.Q., says Bruce Watson, one of the organizers of the Dolphin Classic. “He knows how to lead a team (to the point of being blunt if necessary),” says Bruce, who is not related to Breanne. “He’s got a lot of heart and grit.” Nohr is representative of the kind of talent attracted to the Dolphin Classic. After leading his Aldergrove high

school team to back-to-back provincial AA titles in 1994 and 1995, he continued his mastery at the collegiate level by powering Langara Falcons to Canadian championships in 1998 and 1999 during which he was selected collegiate player of the year. He played a key role in St. Francis Xavier winning university titles in 2000 and 20001 and won a Danish Cup in 2004 while playing in Europe. His three MVP awards at the Dolphin Classic are a tournament record. While the X-Falcons will be tough to knock off their pedestal, a team from Seattle seems poised to try. The Champs, set to tip-off against the BC Ballers

Friday at 7 p.m., features some of the wealth of young basketball talent that has made Seattle one of the biggest hoop hotbeds in the U.S. And the leader of the group, Shan Nichol, is better known as a former quarterback-turnedtight end at the University of Arizona. “There’s a lot of players from Seattle in the NBA right now and more coming,” says Bruce Watson. “There’s so much depth and basketball is really popular there. There are great programs and the kids are getting great coaching and competition. Even Louisville, of all places, has a strong connection to the Seattle scene.”

HARDY, (Murcheson) Rosamond Mary March 16th 1914 July 22nd 2012 Our Matriarch of five generations has left us. Her four children: Iona (Campagnolo), Harold (Lynn), Marion (Mimi Mark) and John (Margie) and their families provided comfort to our Mother in her final days. Rosamond was the widow of Kenneth Hardy who predeceased her in 1989. Both were ‘Islanders”, living on Galiano Island until 1940, when they moved to North Pacific Cannery, an ABC Packing Company Salmon Cannery on the Skeena River. Later, they lived in Prince Rupert and Victoria. Rosamond (Rossy) was a long serving B. C. Provincial Government Employee, retiring from the Victoria Land Registry Office in 1979. Living independently until she was in her mid-nineties, Rosamond called Victoria and Steveston home before moving to the Comox Valley to share her final years with family. Rosamond was the first-born of seven children to Finlay and Ethel Murcheson, who had settled on Galiano in the late 19th century. Sister Jean Streeter survives her siblings Rosamond, Finlay, Angus, Colin, Dorothy and Gordon. In addition to her four children, Rosamond leaves six grandchildren and a number of great and great-great grandchildren. All of who were regularly remembered on their birthdays with small money gifts and supplied with genealogical information so that as Rosamond said: “When cousins meet, they must know one and other”. Her many descendants are joined in respect, admiration and sadness at the loss of our own true ‘Lady’. Missed and loved by her large family, but in accordance with her wishes there will be no funeral services. Cremation will be followed by a family inurnment at Hatley Gardens Victoria. If desired, Rosamond directed that contributions be provided to the SPCA in memory of the many pets that she and ‘Kenny’ enjoyed throughout their lives.

“PEANUT”, ID # 269108, SF, DSH, 2 YEARS 2 MONTHS Peanut is a friendly pig who was surrendered to the Victoria SPCA. He is still on the shy side and would do best with an experienced guinea pig owner who can continue to do gradual introduction exercises with him. He enjoys his daily parsley and exercise out of his cage. Guinea pigs eat hay as a main staple in their diet and prospective owners should make sure there are no allergies in the family. Additionally, they require regular grooming such as nail trims, baths, ear cleaning and the occasional teeth trim as well.

> Theatre Under the Sky at Your Kontinent

Around Town Amanda Oye

Your Kontinent wrap-up The steps outside of the Richmond Cultural Centre filled up with friends and families who were treated to live performances and two film screenings during Theatre Under the Sky last Sunday evening. The event wrapped up Your Kontinent: Richmond International Film and Media Arts Festival, a three-day event put on by Cinevolution Media Arts Society and the City of Richmond. “The closing film was a really hard decision for us,” said Ying Wang, the executive and artistic director of Cinevolution. Organizers wanted to make sure that it was fun and family-friendly. A newly released Taiwanese romantic comedy called The Soul of Bread was chosen in the end. Before the final film Lost and Found, a short animated film, was shown. Throughout the night there were fun activities for everyone to participate in including face painting, dress up and a variety of art activities. “We’ve really tried to target families,” said Yun-Jou Chang, the media and public relations coordinator at Cinevolution. The event was, like the rest of the festival, about bringing cultures together. “We really wanted to bridge the gap between Richmond’s immigrant population and longerterm residents,” Chang said. Looking at differences “can actually bring us together.”
