Footprint ‘small’ for grocery
Options mulled for IGA Alex Browne Staff Reporter
Central Plaza merchants enthused at the prospect of an IGA store coming to the shopping centre – originally planned for this spring – are going to have to be patient a while longer. The store is still coming to White Rock, but plans are up in the air as far as the physical form it will take, according to H.Y. Louie IGA representative Scott Coburn. Coburn said Friday he could not yet supply a ❝The site timeline for opening the presents new store, planned for opportunities, space vacated by Shopbut it’s also pers Drug Mart more a very small than a year ago. “We’re reviewing exactly location for a what we feel we wish to usual grocery put in that location,” he said. store.❞ Merchants had celScott Coburn ebrated the announceH.Y. Louie ment in December that the company had signed a lease for the property, with a projected opening in May. Since the departure of Shoppers Drug Mart, which moved across the street to South Surrey’s Semiahmoo Shopping Centre, walk-by traffic has diminished considerably, merchants say. White Rock Business Improvement Association executive director Sherri Wilson Morissette said that while she had heard the new IGA store is going ahead, she had also heard the company has been trying to negotiate more space at Central Plaza. Coburn acknowledged that space is an issue. “The site presents opportunities, but it’s also a very small location for a usual grocery store – it’s not a very big footprint,” he said. “We’re trying to cope with that and we’re still exploring options and figuring out where to put displays – and there are all kinds of building conditions to consider,” he said.

Fergus Creek restoration ‘about creating ripples’
Helping salmon go with the flow Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter
As the last wheelbarrow loads of gravel rattled down a sheet of plywood into Fergus Creek Thursday afternoon, Bob Donnelly was explaining why 88 tons of rock have been added to the South Surrey salmon habitat. It’s all about creating ripples, the president of the Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club said. “Salmon only spawn in the ripples,” Donelly noted. Adding gravel will result in the right sort of ripples and create an “ideal spawning ground,” he said. Volunteers from the club, along with the

City of Surrey’s Salmon Habitat Restoration Program (SHaRP) youth teams, were hauling gravel and planting trees to make the creek, located near 14 Avenue and King George Boulevard, more hospitable to salmon. All that gravel had to be hauled along the narrow creekside paths by wheelbarrow, Donelly said, and it was the young ShaRP workers who shouldered most of the burden. “It was a massive amount of work,” he said. The river gravel was spread along 170 metres of the creek, a tributary of the Little Campbell River. The land around the area is owned by
the West Winds Strata Council, which agreed to let the workers in. The project was supervised by Fisheries and Oceans. A press release from the club described the addition of the gravel as the final step in the creek restoration. Construction of a new storm water diversion by the City of Surrey has helped by directing high-flow storm water away from the creek while maintaining base flow. So has a Department of Highways “salmon-friendly” repair of the Highway 99 culvert, the release notes. see page 4

news Financial statements show Surrey spent $25-million less in 2011 than year prior
Expenses up for cities’ council members Kevin Diakiw Black Press
It cost $25 million less to run Surrey last year compared to 2010, and $2.118 million more to run White Rock, according to recent figures released by the two cities. The 2011 financial statements detail how much money was received and how much was spent. Surrey spent $605 million last year, and of that, $453 million went to suppliers and third-party contracts – a drop of $37 million from 2010. Of that, $324,000 was spent bringing former U.S. presidents Bill Clinton ($102,453) and George Bush ($221,847) to Surrey’s Regional Economic Summit, but those costs were recouped through ticket sales.

Staff costs dropped by about $90,000, with $8,901,251 spent on employee remuneration in 2011, compared to $8,811,611 the year prior. Council costs were also slightly lower last year than in 2010 ($223,105 compared to $224,551), however, expenses claimed last year were nearly triple those in 2010. In White Rock, former councillor Lynne Sinclair recorded the highest expenses for 2011, at $7,284 (up from $3,966 in 2010), followed by former mayor Catherine Ferguson, who claimed $6,960 (compared to $3,248). Coun. Grant Meyer was tops in

Doug McLean, who did not run for re-election, recorded $3,091 in expenses (up from $247); Mary-Wade Anderson, the veteran councillor who died June 26, spent $2,917 (up from $789). New Mayor Wayne Baldwin claimed $313 in expenses, while Coun. Louise Hutchinson did not claim any.

Centre aims to increase conservation awareness
Scales and surprises at Cinemazoo Jennifer Lang Black Press
t’s a quiet summer afternoon at South Surrey’s Cinemazoo and Urban Safari Rescue Society, where administrator Sharon Doucette sits quietly at her desk near the front door. There’s a sudden crash as her waste paper basket topples over. Something is on the move. “That’s Godzilla,” she smiles, referring to the 16-year-old mature iguana who’s heading for the front door. He’s harmless, but clearly dislikes it when his plans are interrupted. He turns to stare out of a disapproving, bronze-almond eye. The scale-covered iguana is one the dozens of non-human denizens of Cinemazoo and Urban Safari Rescue Society that children attending camps are meeting this summer – as will members of the public Sunday, Aug. 12 when the society hosts a 25th anniversary celebration and open house. The society rescues and rehabilitates wild and exotic animals. Most are donations or rescues. Where possible, new homes are found, or they’re returned to the wild. Godzilla is a relatively new arrival. He was rescued about two months Gary Oliver ago. He was suffering Cinemazoo from an abscess on his leg the size of a baseball. It’s almost healed. Stepping inside, the first thing you notice is the heat – it’s kept at about 78 to 80 degrees inside the refuge – and the humidity. “They’re tropical animals,” says owner and operator Gary Oliver. You can also hear crickets and birds chirping, along with the flutter of wings and burble of aquarium tanks. About 50 to 60 different species make their home here, including scorpions, snakes, cockroaches, spiders, birds, fish and turtles.
Jennifer Lang photos
A gecko named Viper (above), 27-yearold tortoise, Dozer (left) and an iguana, Godzilla – a new arrival – are all residents of South Surrey’s Cinemazoo.
“We are at capacity for turtles,” he says. “We won’t take any more.” There are turtles everywhere, in tanks and enclosures. A collection of bunny hutches housing rabbits and guinea pigs is nearby. Dozer, a 27-year-old tortoise, is the society’s undisputed mascot. “He just loves people.” Volunteers lather his shell with moisturizer each week to keep it supple. Most of the inhabitants are rescues and donations from owners who can no longer keep their exotic pets. “Just yesterday, a lady brought in five goldfish and a turtle,” he says. The goldfish are huge. It’s the sort of place where the human denizens eat their lunch just inches from a tank filled with a school of piranhas, the carnivorous, sharp-toothed fish known for feeding frenzies.
It’s also home to dozens of spiders, local and exotic, including Fluffy, a 24-year-old Mexican red knee tarantula. Oliver, a fedora-clad man with a neatlytrimmed white beard and round eyeglasses, got his start in 1988, working at an animal agency, rescuing animals in distress. Since then, it’s been his mission to educate people about exotic animals – he urges people not to keep them as pets – as well as work for conservation of species and natural habitat. “It’s a really driving force,” he says, explaining he believes the world has reached a critical stage in terms of conservation and environmental issues. “We’re on a downward trend,” he says. “We’re losing all the animals’ habitat.” Oliver wants to educate people, and make them aware of what’s happening. He believes giving the public the opportunity to view endangered and exotic creatures
in person is critical in order to build support for conservation efforts. “You can show people videos and photographs till you’re blue in the face, but there’s no real respect or appreciation until you see for yourself.” He likens it to seeing the Rocky Mountains for the first time. Photographs just don’t quite do them justice. He says his goal is to open a state-of-the-art education centre for the Fraser Valley. He envisions high-tech interactive displays that will appeal to children and adults. The public is welcome to browse the zoo’s library, where there are 3,000 reference books, some of them very rare. There are daily trips to schools, and Cinemazoo hosts four to eight birthdays each weekend. “It’s the only way we can afford to feed these animals,” Oliver says. The centre offers programs for children and young adults, such as the Nature Club and the Junior Zoo Keeper course for kids aged 13 to 17. It’s the first year the society has offered summer day camps for kids out of its facility at 1395 176 St. The centre is open for tours Monday to Friday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Surrey Six trial split into two
MANY IN STORE SPECIALS
Bacon to be tried separately SUPERMARKET Follow us on twitter @ wrsm4997
Kevin Diakiw Black Press
The trial of the Surrey Six case has been split into two, with Jamie Bacon being tried separately. Two separate indictments were filed in B.C. Supreme Court Thursday, allowing Bacon to be tried separately from Cody Rae Haevischer, Matthew James Johnston and Quang Vinh Thang (Michael) Le. All of them face charges in connection with the deaths of six people at the Balmoral Tower in Whalley on Oct. 19, 2007. Police believe four of the victims in the Surrey Six case were gang-related. Two others, 22-year-old Christopher Mohan, a neighbour, and 55-year-old Ed Schellenberg, who was repairing the fireplace, were innocent bystanders. “Separate trials will enable Mr. Bacon to bring applications in relation to issues involving only Mr. Bacon, including issues like solicitor client privilege, that were raised before the Honourable Mr. Justice McEwan in Mr. Bacon’s civil (habeas corpus) proceeding,” B.C. Criminal Justice Branch spokesman Neil MacKenzie said. Proceeding in this way, he said, will allow the trial of the other three accused to proceed without being affected by issues which

The indictment against Bacon lists two counts including first degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder of Corey Lal. The indictment against the others alleges they committed the murder of Lal, while Haevischer and Johnston murdered Ryan Bartolomeo, Michael Lal,
Edward Narong, Schellenberg and Mohan. Both indictments also list convicted killers Dennis Karbovanec and Anton Hooites-Meursing as co-conspirators. In 2009, Karbovanec pleaded guilty to three counts of seconddegree murder and one count of conspiracy. He is currently serving a life sentence with no chance of parole for 15 years.

Bylaw amendments to facilitate construction of a five-unit townhouse project at 15118 Thrift Ave. have received support from White Rock council, despite strong opposition to the development voiced by area residents during a public hearing. Council voted 4-2 in favour of the amendments July 23 – council’s final meeting before the summer break – with Couns. Helen Fathers and Louise Hutchinson opposed. “I just don’t think that this is the right use of land in this area,” Fathers said, noting concerns with heavy traffic add to her opposition. “This area is of great concern to me.” The project, to be built on the south side of Thrift, will provide access to the units from a lane that runs between Foster and Winter Streets. That access was the main source of angst amongst those who spoke at the July 9 public hearing, with one neighbour predicting “bedlam” if the complex goes ahead as proposed. The lane is already “very, very crowded,” Ron Powell told council. The city also received a 22-name petition and eight letters on the project, all opposed.
Prior to the July 23 vote, Hutchinson expressed concern that the project doesn’t meet the city’s Official Community Plan guidelines. She expressed similar concern in opposing amendments that had been requested in order to build a 20-unit townhouse proposed for Finlay Street. That project was stopped in its tracks by a split vote July 23, two months after receiving unanimous support (with Coun. Larry Robinson absent) for first and second reading of the amendments. With the Thrift project, Hutchinson also took issue with the proposed appearance of the development. “There’s nothing redeeming about it at all,” she said. In voicing support for this project, Robinson cited a need to recognize that White Rock has more than one region within its boundaries. “We have to start realizing that White Rock is not one neighbourhood,” he said. “This is smack in the middle of what we would call our commercial core. “As far as density in this area, it already exists,” he said. Couns. Grant Meyer and Al Campbell, and Mayor Wayne Baldwin also supported moving the project forward.

opinion Peace Arch News Published at White Rock by Black Press Ltd.
Perseverance on display very two years, once the Olympic torch is lit and the confetti from the opening ceremonies has been swept up, we begin to learn a little something about the human spirit. And about human nature. We’re blown away by what athletes can and do accomplish, often in the face of overwhelming odds. National heroes are born every day for two weeks – even if the lifespan of that public ardour is painfully short. Eventually, however, that impressive drive to give as much as it takes to win, clashes with a ‘win-at-any-cost’ mentality. We’ve already seen it in London, as four teams of badminton players did their best to throw their respective matches in an effort to draw easier partners in the next round. Nevermind that they were on a world stage, where excellence and effort are the whole point of the exercise. Nevermind the thousands of people in the stands who paid good money for their own Olympic experience – to watch elite athletes battle it out for a chance at glory. No, once they’d been given the boot, the excuses started. One player even announced she would be quitting the sport in protest. Some commenters have defended it as an acceptable strategy. What it was, in fact, was a disgraceful display of disrespect for their sport, the fans and the Olympics themselves. Happily, though, it was but a small blight on what has so far been a fantastic show. We’ve watched in awe as cyclist Clara Hughes – a multi-medal winner in both the Summer and Winter Games – rode to fifth spot in the time trials, and we learned afterward she’d broken her back in a fall two months earlier. Diver Alexandre Despatie returned to the board to earn a bronze in men’s synchronized diving – performing the same dive he’d been doing earlier this summer when he split his scalp. That takes guts. And then, of course, there is White Rock’s Christine Girard, who had many here on the Peninsula glued to their televisions last week as they watched her power through for a bronze medal – Canada’s first-ever Olympic medal in women’s weightlifting. Those are just the Canadian examples – and only the ones we’ve witnessed so far. It can only get better. Forget the Real Housewives of wherever. Never mind the pickers and the hoarders. This is reality television at its best.

So far this week you’ve said… yes 72% no 28% 47 responding Gateway pipeline, it’s no solution. For one thing, it would confer an advantage to the Trans-Mountain pipeline that has been shipping Alberta oil to Burnaby and the U.S. for more than 60 years. The competing expansion proposal by Trans-Mountain’s current owner, Kinder Morgan, shows the inconsistency of opposition to pipelines. Does anyone really believe that a new pipeline built to the highest standards ever would be too dangerous, while a 60-year-old pipeline is acceptable? Protesters have an easy target in Kinder Morgan. With a tenfold increase to 25 tankers a month proposed to sail under the Lions Gate bridge, a heavy oil spill from Second Narrows to Stanley Park would be catastrophic. Tankers have made that trip safely for nearly 100 years, but the congested modern shipping lane offers more threat of collision, and clearing Burrard Inlet for near-daily tanker transits would disrupt the rest of B.C.’s shipping trade. An Angus Reid poll last week showed as many as half of respondents remain open-minded about the costs and benefits of new oil pipelines across B.C. Unlike B.C. politicians, they seem interested in learning more before making up their minds. Dix and the NDP ran to the front of the anti-pipeline parade early. Clark began the Northern Gateway discussion with a principled position to wait for the result of the federal review, but that’s apparently out the window with an election looming.

Deposit rule limits field Editor: Re: New rules for byelection ‘to ensure candidates serious’, July 31. So, the city clerk thinks it’s a good idea that candidates running for council have their nomination supported by at least 10 people and pay a $100 nomination deposit, the latter idea Coun. Grant Meyer thinks should become nonrefundable in the future. I have no issue with finding at least 10 people to support your nomination, because if you can’t drum up that much support for your nomination, how are you going to drum up enough votes to win the nomination? However, those 10 supporters should be carefully vetted to make sure they are not simply representative of 10 different developers and their corporate backers. Following this, I take huge issue with the $100 deposit. This sends the wrong message that democracy is somehow for sale. (Editor’s note: the deposit is to be refunded upon filing of the candidate’s financial disclosure statement.) There are responsible, engaged citizens in the community, who would make excellent councillors, for whom coming up with an extra $100 nomination deposit would be very difficult. Yes, folks, there are poor people in White Rock. And, contrary to popular belief, not all poor people are deadbeats, druggies, criminals and losers. Persons with disabilities, persons on fixed incomes, working families, single parents... all of these groups often fall under the poverty line, and not through any fault of their own. You can bet your bottom dollar, that whoever wins the byelection in November will be the person most backed by developers and the various corporate groups who support them. White Rock city council is already heavily pro-development. Is this the future of White Rock? Can a seat on council literally be bought and paid for? Shawna Brown, Surrey
Who hears if a Bose tree falls? Editor: Re: Bose trees saved after 400 pack hearing, July 26. The headline stating that the Bose Farm application was rejected may be overly optimistic. It was referred back to staff. Council directed staff to “review the site grading plan relative to the Remple Property (adjacent site); retain as many trees as possible; review the road network plan and traffic interchange to increase connectivity; and conduct community consultation with residents and stakeholder groups.”
This does not mean that the forest will be saved. As many trees as possible is a vague request that was interpreted as zero trees in the previous application that passed first and second readings on July 9. That original vote requires some clarification. Coun. Mary Martin, in fact, voted in favour of the application. The Community Charter clearly states that the mayor or acting mayor is a member of council and that all members are obligated to vote on every resolution or bylaw. Neither the mayor nor council members can abstain from voting unless they declare a conflict of interest and excuse themselves from the meeting. Unless a member indicates a contrary vote, their silence is registered as a vote in favour. Substantial changes to the Bose Farm application will be needed to address the resolution of council. The community consultation should include neighbours, environmental groups and be referred to the city’s Environmental Advisory Committee. A new and improved plan should trigger another public hearing.
In the meantime, neighbours should keep a close watch over those 332 trees. If a tree falls in Bose Forest, can council hear it? Grant Rice, Surrey
Thrift project creates hazard Editor: It is clear that White Rock Couns. Grant Meyer, Larry Robinson, Al Campbell and Mayor Wayne Baldwin are very pro-density. That is, they voted for and approved at the council meeting July 23, the ridiculous project at 15118 Thrift Ave. (Bylaw 1976) This was despite five owner representations to the council meeting, not including petitions, against the project. This project will cram five townhouses into a 64-x-120 corner lot with five driveways exiting onto a 20-foot laneway within a few feet of busy Thrift Avenue. This proposal, in the view of the five presenters at the meeting who are against the project, creates a
safety hazard for all residents using the lane. R. Powell, White Rock
Compassion appreciated Editor: We would like to thank the two ladies returning from Trader Joes who noticed our elderly mother walking along King George Boulevard. They took her to the Pacific Inn, suggested RCMP assistance and stayed with her until we arrived. We would also like to thank the staff at the Pacific Inn for their understanding. A very big thank you to Const. Lewis who stayed past his shift to lend support. Many thanks to his partner also. Thank you to nurse Mary, her partner and the paramedics who transported Mom safely to Peace Arch Hospital. We are so fortunate to live in a community with caring and compassionate people.

Over 3,000 volunteers signed up to give their time and energy to help make these games a success.

Newton blaze not considered suspicious
Fire damage ‘extensive’
Kevin Diakiw Black Press
A Newton home with two unauthorized suites has suffered extensive damage in a fire. Surrey fire crews were called out to a home in the 8800-block of 134A Street Wednesday at about 10 a.m. They arrived to find the home completely ablaze, with flames shooting through the roof. Firefighters say there was nobody home at the time, but said there were two suites in the residence. Surrey’s bylaws do not allow homes with multiple suites. Deputy fire Chief Jon Caviglia said inspectors believe the fire began in the back of the house. The fire is not considered suspicious at this point, but it has been determined that it started on the outside. Damage was described as exten-

The initial day of hearings was procedural and no more dates are expected for several months while senior government prepare responses. So far, the force has given no indication it is prepared to negotiate, he said. “If the RCMP wants to fight tooth-and-nail, it will be a long process,” Murray said. “If the RCMP wants to move forward quickly and make real change, the opportunity is there.” RCMP spokesman Cpl.

Summer trek ‘has pulled us back together’ says South Surrey RCMP officer
Canoe journey aims to bridge cultures Tracy Holmes
ot so many years ago, Troy Derrick’s grandfather was jailed for stepping off the Gitxsan reserve in northwestern B.C. To the average person, the idea of such an arrest may be difficult to fathom. But for Derrick, it’s just one part of his family’s history, and it helps paint the picture of why relationships between First Nations peoples and police have long been strained. Sitting in his office at the South Surrey RCMP detachment, where Derrick is a constable, he also has a pretty clear picture of strides that have been made to improve those relationships. In some ways, he is proof. “That’s how much stuff has changed,” Derrick said. “My grandfather being put in prison, to me becoming a police officer – that’s huge.” And while he can also see that there is still a long way to go in many respects, Derrick said efforts such as last month’s annual Pulling Together canoe journey is helping move the process forward. “This journey has pulled us back together,” Derrick said. “The ancestors will now recognize a huge wrong is trying to be made right.” Derrick – along with his 12-year-old son, more than a dozen members of the Semiahmoo First Nation, South Surrey RCMP community safety officer Susan Caley and pre-cadet Shawn-Tai Stevens – was among dozens to participate in the 2012 journey, which took place from July 1-10 in and around the traditional aboriginal territory of the Tla’amin (Sliammon) First Nation, in Powell River. Along the way, they visited villages thousands of years old, joined in traditional
Pre-cadets learning on the job When it comes to getting a taste for policing, it would be fair to say that Shawn-Tai Stevens has already sampled a buffet of opportunities. As a member of the RCMP’s Aboriginal Pre-Cadet Training Program, the 21-yearold Coquitlam resident has run licenceplate numbers, assisted South Surrey officers at traffic stops and worked with Community Safety Officers, speaking to business owners and attending presentations for seniors. He’s also received a firsthand look at the efforts to rebuild and strengthen the relationship between First Nations peoples and the RCMP, as a participant in the Pulling Together journey, an annual event that took place this year near Powell River. The pre-cadet program aims to give participants an inside look at the life of a police officer; a chance to do meaningful work alongside RCMP officers. Successful candidates attend the RCMP Training Academy in Regina for – and often spontaneous – dance and song and learned about the Tla’amin culture, often from some of the band’s youngest members. “It’s so incredible,” Derrick said, of the depth of lessons and tradition shared by the youth. “These kids, they spilled out their knowledge, they spilled out their culture. It was an honour to listen to them.” Born in Smithers and raised in Prince George, Derrick – along with his father and brothers – is a hereditary chief of the Gitxsan

Stevens recently received his Law Enforcement Prepatory Certificate from the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology, and is already going through the process of applying to the RCMP. band. He experienced little of his own culture until he reached his mid-20s, but has become increasingly passionate about it ever since. The canoe journeys, which visit a different traditional territory each year, have been a big part of that. A participant for the past six years, Derrick said he gains in his understanding every year – understanding of how First Nations culture works and how it can be significant in today’s day-to-day life. Each marks a new
beginning, he said. He’s also learning about and understanding more of B.C.’s “dark history” when it comes to First Nations people. For example, of how the RCMP, less than a century ago, banned potlatches; and about communities decimated by the introduction of smallpox, including the Tla’amin, and how that affected B.C. “Two hundred years ago, there was over 20,000 First Nations people there… but due to the small pox epidemic, it took out over 80 per cent of those people,” Derrick said. “It completely changed the face of this province.” Derrick’s own band also used to boast higher numbers, near 50,000. By contrast, his status card bears #483. It is a good reason to work towards positive change, he said. “If I don’t do something about this in a positive way, then everybody who died… will have died for nothing,” he said. “I feel like I have all these ancestors behind me, pushing me to do something.” Stevens, who is working alongside Derrick as a student in the RCMP’s Aboriginal Pre-Cadet Training Program, and Caley participated in the last four days of the journey. Both raved about the welcome they received. Stevens said while he didn’t grow up immersed in his culture – he is Mi’kmaq – he has “always known about it.” The best way to learn about a First Nations community is to spend time there, he said. Stevens and Derrick both agreed the only way to truly understand what the Pulling Together journey is about is to participate, and Derrick said anyone interested in taking part next year may contact him at the South Surrey detachment, 604-599-7810. “Journeys like this are changing people’s views,” Derrick said. “You’ll never get it unless you do it.”

Celebrating 65 years together Evan Seal Black Press
After 65 years of marriage, Roberta Smith, 86, and her 89-year-old husband, Jack, like to think they have a few answers as to what makes people compatible. Married at St. Saviour’s church in Vancouver on Aug. 2, 1947, they both believe they have lived through the perfect time. Sitting at the kitchen table in their bright east Cloverdale home, the two reminisce about life’s challenges and what has kept them together. Camping with their three children was always a highlight of the summer. “We both grew up in Vancouver during the depression so we quickly learned the value of a dollar,” says Roberta. “People nowadays want everything when they get married, we didn’t have anything – no fridge or oven, just an icebox and a Coleman stove.” They were raised in the same neighbourhood – another reason they believe they have lasted so long.

You need to have similarities.” One of their differences, however, is that she collects things, while he likes to throw things out. Jack admits their lengthy marriage hasn’t always been easy, but says “when things go wrong, you work it out. I’ve slept on the couch a few times, but you don’t get up and walk away, you make up and carry on. And she laughs at my jokes – some she’s heard 30 times – and that helps.” Although they never had alcohol in the house when their children were young, Jack now enjoys a glass or two of wine in the evenings, “strictly for health reasons,” he says with a laugh. But most of all, they still enjoy each other’s company and still hold hands, says Roberta. “He’s always happy, that’s what I love about him.”

Virtually guaranteeing quality – and a whole lot of fun for local theatre fans during the Aug. 8-25 run – is the creative presence of directorproducer Ryan Mooney, who helmed last year’s smash hit summer collaboration, Nunsense, and recently directed the hilarious farce Lend Me A Tenor for the club. Hometown favourite Kerry O’Donovan (also a noted pianist and musical director for Vancouver professional productions) takes the lead role of Seymour Krelbourn, the flower-shop nebbish who, in addition to being intimidated by his bullying boss, Mr. Mushnik (David Nicks), and tortured by love for his co-worker, the lovely Audrey (Melissa Clark), also gets pushed around by the plant he nurtures (voiced by Nick Fontaine) – a foulmouthed, R&B-singing alien creature with a really bad attitude, not to mention a taste for blood.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula
Provincial sides set for national championships in Quebec
B.C. rugby teams loaded with locals Rosters were announced last week for the provincial youth rugby sides that will be participating in this week’s Rugby Canada National Championship Festival – and the teams are chock full of Peninsula talent. In total, 17 South Surrey, Cloverdale and White Rock players are competing on four different teams at nationals, which began Monday in Sherbrooke, Que. and are set to run until Aug. 12. Suiting up for Team BC’s U18 men’s team will be recently graduated Semiahmoo
Totems captain Dylan Kiselbach, as well Ian McMaster and Quinton Willms, who both helped Earl Marriott Secondary’s senior boys team to a sixth-place finish at B.C. AAA High School Rugby Championships in the spring. In the U18 women’s tournament, Team BC will feature seven locals, including a strong Cloverdale contingent. Nikolina Boundy, Jenna and Jade Elidoros, April Martin and Alex Mueller – all of Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary – are on the roster, as are Semi-
ahmoo’s Sierra Bonner and Earl Marriott’s Nicole Bengco. All seven players are members of the Bayside Rugby Club, which plays out of South Surrey. Bayside Rugby members also dot a pair of U16 boys team, with five players – Drew Coles, Nick Collett, Nico Docolas, Calixto Martinez and Gavin Rowell – on the U16 Gold side, and two more, Tim Stephens and Nick Wright, with the U16 Blue team. In total, the tournament will feature more than 650 players from B.C., Alberta, Sas-
katchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Quebec and Newfoundland. Each team will have impressive performances to live up to; in 2011, both U18 teams finished on the podium, as did the U16 Gold side, while the U16 Blue team wasn’t far behind, in fourth. Last year at nationals in Calgary, the U18 men’s side and the U16 Gold team went undefeated (4-0) en route to a gold medal. - Nick Greenizan
Volunteer ‘honoured’ to be part of Games
On the Olympic beat S Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter
andra Tice remembers the moment well. She was walking along the Vancouver waterfront, near the athletes’ village, early on the first day of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Hours later, the opening ceremonies – and all the noise, crowds and craziness that followed – would officially launch one of the most successful Games in history. But for the moment, it was quiet. Then suddenly, the calm of the morning was snapped by the sound of a sliding screen door seven or eight floors up. “I looked up at the athletes’ village, and saw two young girls walk out on their balcony and scream, ‘Good morning Vancouver! We love you!’” Tice explained. “It was a pretty cool moment.” And for Tice, a South Surrey communications professional who says she’s “always been crazy about the Olympics,” the moment cemented her love of the Games even further. Now, she’s back volunteering again – this time at the Summer Olympics in London. At the Vancouver Olympics, Tice, making use of her writing, photography and graphic-design skills, was tasked with helping edit and produce a daily Olympic newsletter, which was distributed throughout the village for volunteers, staff members and behind-the-scenes crew. She’s doing a similar job in London, where she’s acting as a reporter for the daily athletes’ newsletter, which puts her right in the thick of the action.
Sandra Tice stands outside Team Canada’s accommodations at the athletes’ village in London. Left, Tice and fellow volunteer Tricia Smith meet Rick Hansen at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
“It’s great to meet these people, these great athletes, and talk to them, find out what their stories are and why the Olympics mean so much to them,” Tice said last month, a day before boarding a plane for London. “Just to be a part of it all is tremendous, but I’m also lucky…
some of the volunteer jobs aren’t that exciting – maybe you’re in charge of furniture – but this is special, to be out and about.” She left the 2010 Games with so many positive memories, she decided to apply again for London “kind of on a lark.” Among her favourite memories
from the Winter Olympics, she said – aside from overhearing that Day 1 early-morning wakeup call – was meeting Rick Hansen, and being in the village whenever a Canadian athlete came home with a medal. “I remember getting to see our ice-dancing pair, Tessa (Virtue) and Scott (Moir), after they won their gold medal. They were just springing around the village, they were so happy,” Tice recalled. In addition to the many athletes, Tice also got the chance to meet many of her fellow volunteers, some of whom have become veterans of multiple Olympic Games, hopping from one to the next, helping in whatever capacity that’s needed.
When writing a story on the volunteers for the daily newsletter, she recalled interviewing one woman who had been to “four or five” Olympics. And though Tice is reveling in the experience, she doesn’t expect to become one of the Gameshopping volunteers herself. “No, no, I don’t think I’m in a position to do that,” she said, adding she was not even sure her work schedule would allow for her to go to London. “But it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and it’s such an honour to be here, in the background helping out. “And now I can say I’ve been to both summer and winter Olympics.”

SURREY’S STREET TREES
Trees are thirsty too! Summer is here; the weather is warm; and the trees on your street and in your yard need water. Like us, trees need long refreshing drinks of water to stay healthy. Here’s what you can do to help your neighbourhood street trees and the trees in your yard this summer: 1. Water the trees twice a week. 2. Water thoroughly at the base of the trees for 15 minutes. 3. Water during the cooler parts of the day (early morning and dusk) and when it isn’t raining. 4. Water slowly so that the water has time to soak into the dry soil and reach the roots, instead of pooling on the surface. For more information about street trees, please call 604.501.5050 For more information about private trees, please call 604.591.4675

After a stressful and very active period you will be ready for some relaxation. Spare some time to spoil yourself by going to a spa or treating yourself to some other gentle activity.
GEMINI You’ll be surrounded by lots of people this week. You might want to finish off your vacation by organizing a party for your family and friends. Summer isn’t over yet, and there is lots more fun in store for you.
CANCER You’ll be surprised to feel the pressure of the back-to-school season. Even if you don’t have school-age children, you will be responsible for an activity that brings these feelings forward for you.
LEO As you prepare to participate in some social activities, other obligations could dampen your enthusiasm. Responsibilities will have to take priority, though.
VIRGO Whether you’re on vacation or not, you would like to plan a mini-holiday. At the very least, you could spend the weekend driving around and discovering new places.
You might feel a bit irritated by a very particular situation. You should make a few adjustments to avoid future misunderstandings.
