Semiahmoo Secondary alumnus mourned at informal memorial in White Rock

Plane crash victim ‘lived life to fullest’ Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

Dallas Smith was remembered as a loyal friend who lived life to its fullest at an informal memorial Tuesday night in White Rock. The 30-year-old Smith, a White Rock native, was one of four people aboard a PA 30 Piper Twin Comanche that crashed the day before, 30 kilometres

west of Kelowna, near Brenda Mines. The B.C. Coroner’s Office said Smith was pronounced dead at the scene and the other occupants of the plane were airlifted to Kelowna General Hospital and Kamloops Royal Inland Hospital. At PAN press time Wednesday, all were listed in critical condition. “It still doesn’t feel real,” long-time friend Tim Proznick said following the

Tuesday night get-together. “Any second, you’d expect Dallas to make an entrance.” Proznick met Smith at Semiahmoo Secondary, and they kept in touch. Proznick, a professional musician, said he could almost always count on seeing his friend in the audience at his concerts. Smith was part of a close-knit group of

friends from the White Rock and South Surrey area, some of them dating back to elementary school. Another longtime friend, Alexis Bennett, called them “the boys,” now young men, who all moved to Vancouver about the same time after leaving school. The “very good looking” Smith was genuinely charming, Bennett said.  see page A4

Nurse remembers

Dieppe insight shared Alex Browne Staff Reporter

A special commemoration at the White Rock Elks Club this Sunday will mark the 70th anniversary of an event – the ill-fated raid on Dieppe – that some would prefer to have forgotten. Among them is the event’s honoured guest, club member Lillian Hanna, 88. She doesn’t have to learn about Dieppe or imagine what it was like. She was there, as a teenaged British Army nurse on a hospital ship Lillian Hanna that cared for Canadian casualties evacuated from the beach. She hasn’t talked much of that time since then – hasn’t wanted to – but agrees with event organizer Pat Maxwell it’s important for post-war generations to know, and remember, this history. The Dieppe Raid, which took place on Aug. 19, 1942, must surely rank as one of the most disastrous military operations of the Second World War.  see page A10 Starting today…

Canadian shoppers and their detractors vent online

Cross-border commentary goes south Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

It all started when a Bellingham resident, frustrated at the lineups at the local Costco and the number of Canadians in those lineups, decided to vent online. The unnamed person was feeling frustrated about the rudeness of the “milk piranhas,” the less-than-affectionate phrase applied to Canadian Costco shoppers who can reduce chesthigh pallets of inexpensive American milk to

nothing in a matter of seconds. So on July 19, that person created a Facebook page, called “Bellingham Costco needs a special time just for Americans.” “Them Canadians can be rude,” the site description said. “The lines are crazy. We aren’t on a vacation and have an RV to hang out in like those Canadians.” The result was an explosion of irate commentary from indignant Americans and Canadians. “The infestation of Canadians in Bellingham

There are now about 400 teams taking part in ISSA and the associated United Summer Soccer League (USSL), for players aged five to 11. USSL is open to players of all ethnic backgrounds. It sounds like both ISSA and USSL are trying hard to keep the doors open to people from other backgrounds. However, the ISSA limits the numbers of non-Indo-Canadians on each team. Is that really a major problem? All this controversy comes just a little more than a week after a terrible shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, which has distressed Sikhs all over the world. Many gathered at special services in Surrey last week to mourn for the dead and injured. There have been several other disrespectful references in the past week to Indo-Canadians, via social media and on at least one local radio station. Coming just after the shooting, this is highly offensive. It’s high time that all of us, no matter what our backgrounds, respected our neighbours who may have a different skin colour or religious belief, but are our fellow Canadians.

Rail cars on the move over Cloverdale Heritage-rail enthusiasts and lucky bystanders at the Clover Square Village mall caught a historic sight yesterday as they looked skyward. Yesterday afternoon, after Peace Arch News deadline, two interurban electric rail cars were hoisted by crane into their new home,

a car barn recently built by the Fraser Valley Heritage Rail Society on 176 Street south of Highway 10. The 70,000-pound cars were relocated from Sullivan Station, and the move marks the start of a new phase in the society’s project that hopes to see people in the

community and beyond enjoy a working rail car next spring. The society plans to complete a replica station in Cloverdale by May 2013 in time for the Cloverdale Rodeo. Visit www.peacearchnews.com for photos. – Kristine Salzmann

news White Rock weightlifter recalls moment after Olympic triumph

Girard thought she missed out on medal Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Martin van den Hemel photo

YVR crowd greets Christine Girard.

When Christine Girard was lifting for a chance at a silver medal, she thought she was lifting for bronze. So when she failed in her final clean-and-jerk attempt – in her mind, knocking her just off the podium for the second straight Summer Olympics – only to be told, moments later, that her performance was still good enough for a medal, she did something she hadn’t expected to do. She started to cry. “I was in a such a bubble when I was competing. Everyone else knew I had the bronze, but I didn’t,” she said Tuesday, a day after returning to White Rock with her husband, Walter Bailey. “When I missed, and thought I was fourth, for a few seconds I was destroyed, I was so sad. But that change from disappointment to ‘Oh my God, I did it’ was amazing. “I didn’t know how I would react. I just burst into tears, I was so happy.”

Fielding complaints

New ban for dogs Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The days of walking Rover or Fido through parks with sports fields are coming to an end in Surrey, as the city is now banning dogs in several athletic areas. In recent days, signs have gone up at City of Surrey parks indicating canines are not allowed – with or without a leash. The move shrinks the green space available to Surrey’s estimated population of 127,000 dogs. The problem isn’t so much the dogs – but what their owners leave behind. Sports groups are tired of having to clean up dog waste on playing fields before beginning games and have lobbied the city to do something. Coun. Tom Gill, who sits on the city’s parks committee, said some groups keep a shovel in their equipment room to scoop up the feces before a day of play. He added that on many soccer pitches, the grass has been destroyed by dog urine. The city investigated hiring a firm to clean up the poop but found it was prohibitively expensive. Gill said another concern is offleash dogs that chase small children in the parks. “When you’re six feet tall, you’re kind of OK, but when you’re twofoot nothing, scrambling around the field, you get a little bit excited.” Dog owners can expect a bylaw crackdown in areas where Surrey is receiving the most complaints. People who are found in noncompliance of the new rules can face a fine of $50 to $2,000. Most of the time, the fine is $200. To accommodate the growing number of dogs, Surrey has devised its second long-term plan for offleash parks: The City of Surrey 2012-2021 Off-Leash Area Strategy. It follows a 2001-2010 study that called for the current seven dog parks in Surrey, and 14 new dog parks by 2021.

Sandwich boards ‘critical to corner store’s survival’

Sign rules frustrate business owner Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

The owner of the Green Source Merchant store in White Rock has been ordered to remove sandwich board signs from her location at 991 Stayte Rd. The decision by the City of White Rock ends months of lobbying by Marlene Ursulak for permission to place signs closer to the curb to advertise her organic corner store. Ursulak has been putting out chest-high signs with pictures of ice cream cones and a brief message advertising her organic coffee to get drivers to pull in. Without the visibility the signs provide, she is not optimistic about the future of her business. “I’m just not making it,” Ursulak says. “I’m struggling. I need to advertise my products.” She says the problem is the former convenience store she leases is set back from the

AUGUST SPECIALS

Safety board still on site of fatality  from page A1 One of his best friend’s mothers nicknamed the 5’11” Smith “her little George Clooney” for his resemblance to the movie star. When they were kids, Bennett said, she talked Smith into being her boyfriend, briefly, then decided they were better off staying friends. And they did. Years later, they were platonic roommates for about a year, and they never lost touch, she said. Even after moving to Vancouver, Bennett says, Smith would make regular trips back to the Peninsula to reconnect with friends. And he loved travel, taking last year off to explore the world.

The motto on Smith’s Facebook page is a quote: “everybody dies, but not everybody lives.” “He was adventurous,” Bennett said. “He did more than most people do in a lifetime. I’m just happy that he got to do as much as he did.” “He definitely lived his life to the fullest,” Proznick said. Smith’s girlfriend, a White Rock resident, had bought him flying lessons as a present, but it’s not clear if the flight he was on was part of the package she purchased. She is believed to have been on board the plane with Smith. Registration letters on the wreckage match an entry in the

Canadian Civil Aircraft Registry. The entry is for a Piper aircraft based in Boundary Bay and co-owned by Rick Zyvitski of Comox and Maplewood Landscaping in Delta. When contacted by CTV News, one employee at the business said a family member of one of the owners was on board the plane. The Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Victoria was first notified that the flight had gone down around 3 p.m. when an emergency beacon was set off; the pilot had not placed a distress call. Transportation Safety Board investigators are expected to be at the site for the next two days.

Other Canadians were more tongue-in-cheek. “America is poor, Canada is rich,” wrote Shane Fraser. “They bought Alaska in 1867 for $7.2 million, so given inflation I suggest we offer $220 million for it which would be a 100% profit for them. It’s a fair offer, eh?” Ken Oplinger, president of the Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce and Industry, was busy telling anyone who asked that the page did not represent the feelings of the border city.

Bellingham isn’t overrun with ignorance and hate!” Around the same time, someone else satirized the whole dispute with a Facebook page titled “Bellingham Costco needs a special time just for Canadians.” The pro-Canadian spoof page is heavy on humorous videos aiming to explain Canada to Americans, along with a few apologetic comments by Americans like Kimberly Cancelosi, who writes “most of us in Bellingham are very embarrassed by this whole situation. A few idiots have made us all look bad.” By Tuesday, the original page that had started the whole controversy had disappeared. It reappeared Wednesday, with the administrator suggesting both sides need to calm down. “I must say that some of you have blown this way out of pro-

portion,” the administrator wrote. “This goes for both American and Canadians.” Bellingham residents have nothing against cross-border shoppers, the poster noted: “We welcome Canadians to our little town.” By then, the page had attracted 4,272 “likes.” The debate continues to rage, with new Facebook pages appearing, among them “boycott the Bellingham Costco,” “build another Costco in Bellingham Washington “and “stop rude Canadians from invading America.” Costco, which has been keeping a low profile during the kerfuffle, has said that it has no intention of changing its policy that anyone with a Costco membership can shop at any Costco in the world. The company noted it would like to expand its Bellingham outlet. - with files from CTV news

news May cost drivers less to cross new Port Mann Bridge

Minister hints at lower toll Tom Fletcher Black Press

As the Port Mann bridge replacement nears completion, Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom says he is “optimistic” the toll can be lowered below $3 per crossing, at least for the first year. Lekstrom said this week that his discussions with the corporation set up to build the 10-lane bridge in North Surrey indicate it may be possible to reduce the toll rate by extending the debtrepayment period. When the project was announced, a $3 toll was calculated to pay the bridge off over 40 years. Lekstrom said he has heard from many who consider that toll too high, especially since the bridge will function with only eight lanes for the first year. The old Port Mann must be taken down before the last two lanes can be connected to Highway 1.

Evan Seal photo

Tolls on the new Port Mann Bridge may be lowered, says B.C.’s transportation minister. So would a toonie get you across during the first year? Lekstrom wouldn’t give specific numbers

until the entire tolling framework is released, expected early September. There will be a second round of ministry advertising at that time, to explain the rates that will take effect when the bridge opens in December. The eastern portion of the South Fraser Perimeter Road will open at the same time, giving drivers a faster route to the Pattullo Bridge as an alternative over the Fraser River. Lekstrom said he expects some people to try that, but soon recognize the time-saving benefit of the new Port Mann. The prospect of a lower toll didn’t impress Jordan Bateman, B.C. Director of the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation. “Lower Mainland drivers already pay more than a billion dollars a year in gas taxes,” Bateman said. “We deserve to know that money is flowing into roads and bridges before we get dinged for tolls.”

Poor recycling choices put oceans at risk

W

hile we’re unlikely to see an end to the debate about climate change anytime soon, last week Lower Mainlanders saw firsthand how the human race is impacting Mother Nature. The Japanese research vessel Kaisei was in nearby Steveston for the Richmond Maritime Festival, and researchers onboard that vessel brought samples of the thousands of tonnes of plastic that are polluting the Pacific Ocean. Comprising plastic drink cups and laundry detergent containers to chunks of foam, plastic grocery bags and other man-made products, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch stretches the size of the state of Texas, perhaps even twice as large. Some of the plastic remains recognizable, but others have been smashed to smithereens, turning into a floating toxic cloud of small particles that ocean life appears to be feeding upon. And that means it could be winding up in the food chain, and end up in a different form on your dining table. We are a consumer-based society, and there’s no changing that, but people need to become more responsible in how they dispense their waste. Much of the hundreds of millions of tonnes of plastics produced annually is somehow winding up in the ocean. And that mess desperately needs cleaning up. What’s more, the dangerous chemicals that make up these plastics are leaching into the waters, a further invisible hazard. Also on the environmental front, Bing Thom Architects recently released a study about the impact rising sea levels will have on Vancouver. Should the seas rise five metres or higher, more than $25-billion worth of Vancouver real estate could be impacted, in addition to the impact on roads, sewers and electrical facilities. And a similar impact would likely be expected in other seaside communities even closer to home. In Richmond, city staff are already looking at that city’s own system of dike protection, with the cost of upgrades expected to reach $200 million or more, a cost to be borne over the next quarter century. In a nutshell, we reap what we sow. Think about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch the next time you fail to recycle anything plastic. You probably won’t pay the price, but your children and grandchildren surely will.

Where, Metro Vancouver mayors might also ask, was Clark’s boldness to shake down Ottawa when they wanted to slap a tax on each container that moves through the port? Since container trucks beat up our roads and bridges, they suggested, why not charge a container toll that would go to TransLink and act as one new funding source that doesn’t come from the pockets of taxpayers and motorists. But the container tax was shot down almost instantly by the BC Liberals. In fairness, this region has been on the receiving end of plenty of cash from Ottawa. The feds have pumped in hundreds of millions of dollars – not just for obvious port-related projects like the SFPR and Roberts Bank Rail Corridor overpasses, but also big contributions to the construction of the Pitt River Bridge, the Canada Line and now the Evergreen Line to extend SkyTrain to Coquitlam. Port expansion also promises thousands of additional jobs in the Lower Mainland. That doesn’t take away from the fact there are downsides to being Canada’s West Coast industrial park. Whether it’s the new Enbridge pipeline, the expanded Kinder Morgan pipeline proposal or simply more expansion of port terminals, all of this boils down to the same thing: an expectation B.C. suck it up and accept inconvenience, risk and environmental or other losses to benefit the rest of Canada. If we are being asked, over and over, to take one for Team Canada, maybe it is time to consider seeking a new deal. Jeff Nagel is the regional reporter for Black Press.

Resignation a blessing Editor: Re: Sentence fails public, police, Aug. 9 Frank Bucholtz column. The judge’s reason for a light sentence – that former RCMP officer Monty Robinson is a native extraction – is an insult to the native community. It is as if telling the community they are so backward that it is acceptable for the authority to bend backward to render all form of assistance, Robinson’s light sentence being one. It is a blessing to the RCMP that Robinson resigned. Otherwise, what little confidence the public have in the RCMP would only dwindle despite that the majority of police members are upright.

Renovation the work of many Editor: Re: City recognized for project, Aug. 9. It is wonderful that you are talking about this amazing school – Kensington Prairie Elementary – but there was a lot more then just one person that was at the helm of this heritage project. And it was more than just a fresh coat of paint. There was a lot of seismic upgrading to all the buildings. The heritage building had all the asbestos removed and the floor leveled off; all the new electrical and plumbing. The building was not what a lot of people were expecting. This building would not be as successful without the great management and great organization from the general contractor and great subtrades. I am not blaming the paper, but they should know who was involved and what went on before they publish a story like this. Justin Vandebeek, Maple Ridge

History Hunters share their message.

Performers feel appreciation Editor: I would like to say a big thank you to the community and visitors to this area on behalf of the performers from History Hunter, a not-forprofit cultural-awareness group of actors, singers and musicians who presented their music and storytelling at various venues on the Semiahmoo Peninsula on the August long weekend, including the Spirit of the Sea Festival. The people at the beach who met them and who saw them perform, as well as their audiences at Westminster House Care Home,

the First United Church ‘Family Adventure’ and at a private BBQ event were more than gracious and very supportive. The History Hunter project means to share with the world the stories of historical characters in the form of songs and a sing-along comic book and a new multi-act musical production. Its purpose is to encourage cultural awareness in all age groups. These opportunities to further our message to such receptive audiences are much appreciated. Patricia Jessen, Surrey

Not too late to stop casino An open letter to Surrey council. Re: Newton casino in talks to move south, May 31; Casino shuffle splits businesses’ views, June 26; Cloverdale calmed over casino, July 19. The fait accompli is almost certain. In 2010 you had hearings. Hearings that no one in the area that I have talked to was invited to. How many people attended? Who was invited? What addresses were the

invitations sent to? You have had three votes already without really consulting the citizens of Surrey that live in the area. One more vote and you seal the fait accompli. Is that how you want to be remembered when you leave office? To the new council members, I ask you this: does it sound like it is a fair above-board process being used? Take a drive down to the area. Knock on some doors in the 8001200 blocks of the King George Boulevard of broken dreams before you vote. See what the people tell you when you ask them if they were invited to hearings and public open houses. Get the facts right and make an informed decision on the whole process. It is not too late to stop what you are about to let happen. Make the right choice – vote no. Your planning department says there will be more public hearings even if you say yes; but if you say yes, there will be no stopping this sinking ship. It will only be fait accompli because the BC Lottery Commission wants it, so they are going to pull the wool over every one’s eyes to get it. Michael John Balderson, Surrey

It is one of the reasons why I am no longer a fan of soccer. When the team you support loses a match because of a questionable call it is very demoralizing. The organizers of soccer have refused to introduce modern technology into soccer to remove this problem

of questionable calls. Other sports organizers are not so backward. For example, in tennis, players are allowed to challenge line calls and a slow-motion replay decides the point. There are a limited number of challenges allowed so that players don’t just challenge every call. Why can’t soccer introduce a similar system for challenging questionable calls? The technology is available – it is the inertia of the organizers that is holding soccer back. Christopher Rickwood, Surrey

KITCHENS & BATH

Nurse kept silent for many years  from page A1 Historians and military analysts – including Winston Churchill – have long argued the raid, a first attempt to storm and capture a port town in northern France, was of huge strategic significance, teaching lessons in actual beach landing conditions that were vital in the planning of D-Day. Others have argued the mission was fatally compromised; rushed into action for political reasons, botched all the way down the command chain and undermined by the German intelligence service, which had been able to warn defenders where and when the raid was coming. No amount of debate can alter the fact that of 5,000 Canadian troops who landed at Dieppe – the principal force of the raid – only some 2,000 survived. It is principally to honour all those “men of valour” who faced a withering “hail of machine gun, artillery, mortar and grenade fire” that club member Maxwell – a self-confessed history buff – has organized the Aug. 19 commemoration, 3-8 p.m., 1469 George St. For a minimum donation of $10 to Elks charities, participants (19+) will watch documentaries, have dinner and listen to a pipe band and live ’40s music from members of Fynetuned. But surely the most telling reminder of Dieppe will be the presence of Hanna, whose memories remain vivid. “There were quite a few hospital ships around there, pretty close to the beach – as close as they could get without being a landing craft,” she recalled, in the soft, lilting accent of her native Ireland. “There were boats all around, people shouting and giving orders. I remember hearing bombs and guns in the distance.” Hanna saw bodies floating in the water, that other men pulled up rope ladders and lifted to the deck of the ship. She worked side by side with doctors and other nurses, working furiously to apply some kind of dressings to the wounds of hundreds of horribly injured and mutilated soldiers. “I felt it was a slaughter.” At the time, she had no idea that she was at Dieppe. She knew the soldiers were Canadian from what was left of their uniforms. “Some of them were badly

British soldiers return from raid. burned. Their uniforms were burned off them and their skin was peeling off. “We were mainly doing dressing and suturing. We worked with what we had – what bandages we had. When we ran out of those, we ripped up sheets.” It was one of the most harrowing experiences of her life – and she has been no stranger to them. Nursing has been a lifelong calling for Hanna, who found time to raise six children with her late husband, a Canadian soldier from Manitoba who brought her home as a war bride. A spirited girl, Hanna – originally Elizabeth Pierce – was a surgeon’s daughter from County Wexford who had ended up accompanying her dad to the local general hospital from an early age, largely to keep her from getting into well-intentioned mischief with the horses and cows on the family farm. Impressed by the bravery and stoic spirit of British civilians during the dark days of the Blitz of 1940-’41, the St. John Ambulance trainee volunteered for further nursing training in London. It didn’t take long for her to be in the thick of war. She remembers pulling civilians from the rubble of a bombed store near Blackheath, and being among a group machine-gunned on the street by a German plane during a raid. When the British Army found medical staff in short supply, Hanna was among those conscripted and trained as a surgical nurse. She and her colleagues would be assigned wherever they were needed, often receiving travel orders without knowing where or why they were going. That’s how she found herself in a convoy of ambulances from a base in Kent, heading to a port for embarkation to a hospital ship on

the day of the Dieppe raid. “None of us really questioned it,” she said. “Some of us thought we were going to South Africa, and that we’d be well out of the war.” That impression changed when they found the hospital ship surrounded by the noise of battle – aircraft roaring overhead and guns booming from the shore – even though they still didn’t know where they were. And then the casualties started to come on board. She can’t recall now how long the ordeal lasted. “It seemed forever to me. We had to be there a day or two, trying to get these people out.” After they evacuated the wounded, they stayed with them until they reached England. “We took them to Basingstoke, which was a Canadian hospital.” Then other nursing staff took over, and they were on to another assignment – medical personnel weren’t to dwell, Hanna said. “It was tough on a lot of us, but they always kept moving you on to something else,” she said. “They didn’t want you to talk or think about what you’d just seen.” For her, Dieppe was only an early chapter in an arduous war that would need a book to describe. For some of it, she was sworn to secrecy at the time, and is only now breaking silence, though she is still reticent about details. Like a secret landing operation to establish an advanced field hospital in Northern France – or takeover of a similar German facility – shortly after D-Day. “That really went wrong – a lot of nurses were killed,” she said. “I got a big chunk of shrapnel as I started to climb up from the beach and was captured by a German doctor and held prisoner for three or four days. “There were a lot of mistakes, but they told me not to talk about it, and I didn’t.” Later, she was assigned to a hospital for German prisoners of war in Northern England. For Hanna, it was further exposure to the tragedy of war and its universal impact on human beings, no matter what uniform they wore. “Some of them were just boys of 16. They came with short pants on – Hitler Youth. They were hanging onto us and crying for their moms and dads.”

perspectives …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

The colourful history of a longtime White Rock resident

Remembering the life of Eric Griffiths Alex Browne

T

Staff Reporter

he death of longtime White Rock resident Eric Griffiths at the age of 91 marks the close of another, earlier chapter in the evolving history of the city. His passing was marked only by a quiet ashes-scattering ceremony at Victory Memorial Gardens on Aug. 4 – it would have been his 92nd birthday – attended by relatives of his late wife, visiting from Wales, and a small coterie of surviving friends. In recent years, most locals encountered him as an affable regular at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre’s food court. Widowed, with no children, and long-retired, Griffiths lived, latterly, at Bayview Chateau on Blackwood Street. But White Rock residents with longer memories recall Griffiths as one of the proprietors, with father Walter, of Midway Motors – a landmark Johnston Road automobile sales and service operation from 1947 until 1973, so-named because it was located midway between the then King George Highway and the beach. Like his father, Griffiths was known as an enthusiastic, if nottoo-skilled, member of the city’s boating community in the decades following the Second World War; he and his father bought their first boat, a 34-foot cruiser christened the Wallerdeeno, in 1952, and he became the first commodore of the White Rock Yacht Club, from 1953-’56. Indeed, at one time, the Midway Motors building (at 1549 Johnston Road, near the current KFC franchise) was virtually headquarters for many Peninsula boaters; an upstairs clubhouse served as the venue for meetings and dances for the club. White Rock historian Lorraine Ellenwood said the dances were legendary as riotous affairs in which restraint in imbibing was not notable. “It had an exterior staircase and I’m surprised, from what I hear,

that any of them made it down to the street safely after the dances,” she said. “I would have liked to have been around to see that.” After White Rock’s breakwater proved inadequate for mooring, and members tried unsuccessfully to form an alliance with other yachting groups, the club closed in 1961. Griffiths became one of the founding directors of the White Rock Power Squadron the

same year, and Midway Motors’ clubhouse, in turn, became the venue for squadron activities. At that time, according to a 50th anniversary history compiled by squadron member John Toews, the Griffiths owned two vessels moored in Blaine Harbor, Wa., the 100-foot wooden Lady Valentine, of 1914 vintage, and the 65-foot Vantonia. Griffiths, who had been a director

of the Kiwanis Club of Peace Arch, was also active in the Masons, serving as worshipful grand master of his lodge. “He was a strong part of the community,” said Wilf Price, a former employee at Midway Motors. Stubbornly self-reliant to the end, Griffiths succumbed to a heart attack after being rushed to Peace Arch Hospital on July 26, just days

after returning home following surgery for a broken hip. “He was a very strong-willed man,” said longtime resident Mary Beals. “He was determined he was going to walk again, and he did.” She recalled Walter and Eric Griffiths first arriving in the city in 1945 – along with Eric’s mother, Olive, and his Welsh war bride Dean (Deanie) – following both men’s service in the war. Father and son were also Welsh by birth, said Bob Haining, who befriended Eric Griffiths some 10 years ago and compiled a family tree for him. Walter was born in 1900 and Eric in 1920, and the family emigrated to Canada in 1926, Haining said. Walter Griffiths had also served in the British Army during the First World War. Both he and his son enlisted in the Canadian Army at the outbreak of the Second World War, serving together in England. (Eric Griffiths, first a gunner, and later a lancebombardier with the Third Canadian Field Regiment, saw active service during the invasion of Sicily and the French and German campaigns). Ellenwood said the pair were noted at the time as the youngest father and son serving with British forces, and the pair had the distinction of being presented to King George VI in February 1940. “Eric was very close to his Dad,” Beals said. “He worked with him and for him, and (Dean) did the books for Midway Motors for years and years. They were a very close family, all four of them.” “They lived in the same house on Marine Drive and Eric and Walter came to work together every day,” Price remembered. Price, who was first employed by Midway Motors on the lube rack in 1963, spent a decade working there – mostly in the parts department. The Griffiths’ originally sold and serviced Austins, but by 1953 the company had switched products to become a Chevrolet-General  see page 12

WHITE ROCK ELKS #431

Friends share memories  from page 11 Motors dealership. “I bought a car from Midway and I think my dad bought his Austin from them,” said local history buff Dave Henderson, who added that Griffiths later gave him some of his early photographs of the dealership. (Both Haining and Price remember Griffiths as a keen amateur photographer who retained a lively interest in changing photo technology. After Dean died in 2001, Griffiths bought a computer and used it to digitize his photographs. “He went from never having turned a computer on, at age 82, to becoming very proficient in Photoshop,” Haining said.) Although the senior Griffiths was more the imperious boss, according to Price – “Walter was the owner and everybody else knew that – you didn’t cross Daddy” – he viewed both father and son as “excellent people to work for.” “They were people-people – they liked meeting and talking with you,” he said. Walter died in 1971, passing the reins to Eric. After the business folded a few years later, Griffiths devoted his time to caring for Dean, who was in declining health. “He kept a sharp eye out for her and made sure she was enjoying herself,” said Merv Lowen, who has happy memories of the couple accompanying her, and her late husband, Leo, on numerous post-retirement vacation trips to Palm Springs. “We had a motor home and they

They were a very close couple. And Eric was so well liked – when he had the car dealership he sold lots.” Price said he also got to know Griffiths well over their 10-year association at Midway. “The thing I remember most is his presence,” he said. “He was always friendly – he’d stop on the street and talk to everybody.” “He was a short man – like a banty rooster,” said Haining, who remembers Griffiths seeming to know everyone at the Semiahmoo Shopping Centre food court, where he had coffee at least three times a week. “You didn’t want to back him into a corner but he had a wonderful sense of humour – he was liked by everyone.”

Miles of Smiles Mobile Dental Hygiene Services Inc. Although relatively new to the Peninsula, Miles of Smiles Mobile Dental Hygiene Services Inc. has already made a big impression on residents. Since January, Registered Dental Hygienist Paula Pedersen and company CEO Rick Pedersen have been bringing comfort and ease with their unique business to those who are on the go or who find it challenging to make it to a dental office. Using portable equipment – similar to the kind that you can find at any dental office – Miles Of Smiles brings the comfort and convenience of Dental Hygiene to you. “Our business model is to bring our equipment to corporate locations to facilitate the Dental Hygiene needs of employees without them having to leave the office,” Rick says. “This has a substantial increase in productivity and decreases employee absenteeism from the work place.” Paula also brings the mobile Dental Hygienist’s equipment to personal residences, senior care residences, extended care residences and hotels for out-of-town visitors. Miles Of Smiles performs a wide variety of Dental Hygiene services including oral assessments, oral screening (for tissue abnormalities and other dental issues), scaling, root planing (teeth cleaning), polish and fluoride, teeth desensitization, teeth whitening and custom fit mouth guards for sports. And they’re continuing to grow. The company is set to franchise the business across Canada in provinces including Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. So, next time you need a cleaning and don’t think you have the time, think again. Miles of Smiles can provide superb Dental Hygiene services right to your door.

Arthritis? Diabetes? Fibromyalgia? Aches? Pains? Not Sleeping?

TM

T3 RECOVERY MATTRESSES Ironman Mattresses with Celiant® and Cellitex® have been proven in clinical test to reduce pain, increase oxygen levels, and help balance body temperature. Each of these results can have added benefits, including faster healing, increased performance, better quality sleep and improved overall wellness; all of which can help alleviate the symptoms of arthritis and peripheral vascular disease often associated with diabetes. The key to Celliant® lies in its ability to absorb and store electromagnetic (energy) emissions from the human body and release them where they are reabsorbed into the skin and deep muscle tissue, they act as catalysts for natural, biological processes resulting in enhanced oxygen levels, and more balanced body temperature during sleep, rest or physical activity. Clinical Testing done by University of California, University of Indianapolis, University of Chicago, University of Texas, University of Alberta, plus more!

• Low-profile cabinet bed opens into queen size bed in just seconds • Ideal sleeping solution for studio apartments, condos, resorts, guest rooms • Free-standing patented cabinet design only 39” tall • No need to remove objects from top surface of cabinet • Free-standing - no need to bolt to floor or wall - no installation required • Large storage drawer holds pillows or bedding

Natural Latex in the Ironman Mattress is inherently hypoallergenic, anti-microbial, and dust mite resistant, making it the perfect mattress for allergey sufferers, or anyone wanting to breathe the fresh, clean air while they sleep. In addition, natural latex is breathable, keeping you warmer in the winter, and cooler in the summer. It will provide you with the perfect balance of comfort and support for years to come. Natural Latex dynamically conforms to you, providing superior support and pressure relief. By gently conforming to your every contour, latex provides superior back support and outstanding pressure relief. Relieving pressure reduces the tossing and turning that interrupts sleep and brings needed oxygen and nutrients to tired aching muscles.

One scholarship, three winners There’s only supposed to be one recipient of the the Mary Hartwell Scholarship program, administered by the White Rock Farmers’ Market Society, but this year, they made an exception. As a result, on Sunday at 10:00 a.m., at the market venue entrance at Russell Avenue and Johnston Road, three people will

be honoured. Each will receive a certificate and an award of $2,500 payable towards post-secondary education costs in food/nutrition and/ or sustainable agriculture. The Mary Hartwell scholars for 2012 are Samantha Smith, Lucy Brain and Grace Augustinowicz. A statement issued by the soci-

ety explains the applicants “displayed such exceptional qualities that David Hawkins, the husband of the late Mary Hartwell, was prompted to add the extra funds which allowed the society to award not one but three scholarships for 2012.” For more information, visit whiterockfarmersmarket.ca

Hollick and executive director Cliff Annable presented Sources Community Resource Centre’s David Young with a cheque for the amount on Aug. 7. The contribution represents part of the proceeds from the chamber’s golf tournament, which was held in May.

Manager honoured Ivan Krcmar, a McDonald’s manager in Cloverdale, has received a 2012 Outstanding Manager of the Year Award from McDonald’s Canada. This award is presented to restaurant managers across Canada who have made a significant contribution to McDonald’s in the areas of customer service, staff training and development, co-ordinating local marketing programs and sales building.

Each Outstanding Manager of the Year Award winner receives a plaque and shares of McDonald’s Corporation stock. “It’s a great honour to receive this award from McDonald’s,” Krcmar said. “To be recognized for my efforts and successes at my restaurant is a tremendous achievement for me and my team. I am proud that the team’s growth and efforts to achieve success were recognized through this award.” Krcmar began his five-year career with McDonald’s as a management trainee at the Tynehead McDonald’s restaurant in Surrey. “This award is a welldeserved recognition for Ivan,” said James Harper, Cloverdale McDonald’s owner/operator.

New Beauty Institute

Settle the score with stubborn lumps and bumps like muf¿n tops. Show off the body you’ve always dreamed of. We are proud to announce that we now offer CoolSculpting®, the revolutionary new body contouring treatment that freezes fat. Patients are seeing undeniable and lasting results in as little as one treatment. There are no needles, no special diet, no supplements and no surgery. It’s FDA-cleared, safe and proven effective.

$100 OFF the treatment



Health Canada Approved.



With coupon only. Offer valid till Aug. 31/12

Dr. C. Mok

The summer season is the perfect time – and often in B.C. the only time – to show off a fresh pedicure in your favourite toe-baring shoes. However, some may require a little more help before slipping on their flip flops due to onychomycosis, or in simple terms, toenail fungus. The contagious fungal infection can affect fingernails or toenails and occurs, more often Caree Ludwar than not, because mold spores grow in dark moist environments like shoes. But for those who are suffering from toenail fungus, there is a quick, non-drug solution with Laser GenesisPlus, offered by the professionals at New Beauty Institute in White Rock. For 9 years, owner and operator Caree Ludwar and her staff have been providing beauty solutions to Peninsula residents, and now they can help with unsightly toe issues. “Many of our female clients are bringing their husbands in,” Ludwar said. With Laser GenesisPlus, tiny pulses of light pass through the toenail to the fungus underneath. The fungus is then irradiated without any damage to surrounding nail or skin, and best of all, the procedure typically takes 20-30 minutes with minimal discomfort. Most patients are only required to come in 2-3 times to clear up the fungus. But for those who are fungus-free and would rather focus on trouble spots such as muffin tops and love-handles, Ludwar and the team have a solution for you too. Coolsculpting, the revolutionary new body contouring treatment that precisely targets the stubborn fat you want to lose, targets that exercise resistant and menopausal fat with undeniable results after just one treatment. It’s never been easier to sculpt the body you want – naturally, safely and without surgery or downtime. According to Ludwar, the results are “phenomenal.” “The results have exceeded our expectations,” Caree says. New Beauty is in their second year of providing this exciting treatment and the master certified staff has performed more treatments than anyone else in Canada; achieving their Double Snowflake Certification in the procedure. “This treatment will blow your mind.” For more information on any of the treatments offered at New Beauty Institute, call 604-541-8750 or visit www.new-beauty.ca

Petland Grandview Corners

www.peacearchnews.com A23

Helping you care for your pet!

Whether you have a family member who is furry, feathered or covered in scales, the place for pets on the Peninsula is Petland. For more than two years, the Brenna, Sammy & Tess pet megastore has been providing residents with services and products to please their animal family members. From full service grooming to a wide selection of treats and toys, there’s something for any beloved pet. And for those who are searching for a new addition to the family, Petland’s pet councillors have a wealth of experience and knowledge that they will use to help match the right pet to the right owner. But if circumstances do arise, Petland’s Pets for a Lifetime Policy can help bring a resolution. “We recognize that customers have the best of intentions and they plan to exceed their pets’ basic needs with love and proper care for a lifetime,” Petland’s marketing manager Agatha Slominski said. “However, if there are issues making it difficult for pet owners to keep their lifetime promises to Petland Pets, pet counsellors can help find a new home.” With policies that truly reflect the company’s care for the welfare and happiness of both pets and owners, it comes as no surprise Petland has been an industry leader for more than 38 years. For example, Petlands’s commitment to maintaining a team that is up to date with ongoing staff training programs, as well as in-store animal care systems and community service programs aimed at placing homeless pets and curbing pet overpopulation in the community. The Canadian-owned and run company also donates to local groups such as the Western Great Dane Club of BC and national charities, such as the National Service Dogs for Autism. “It’s very rewarding to be able to help the small, local animal groups that sometimes don’t have a huge budget,” Slominski said. “At Petland we love your pet as much as you do!”

Spectrum Optometry provides a Dr. Michelle Elliott full-service eye clinic, offering comprehensive eyehealth examinations, emergency services, eyeglasses, contact lenses and low-vision assistance. With such a wide range of services offered by an experienced team, you can be assured your families eye care needs will be looked after properly .

Understanding our patients unique vision is what has made us successful over the years. Each person’s visual needs are different, so why would one lens design suit everyone? At Spectrum Optometry our doctors work to find the optimal visual solution for you. Call today to arrange your Eye Health Examination.

Most importantly, at Spectrum Optometry you will not feel like you’re on assembly line, moving from one station to another. Spectrum Optometry strives to make the patient experience more personal with one-on-one consultation with doctors and opticians, ensuring that each patient’s visual needs are better understood. Spectrum Optometry puts an emphasis on taking the time to find the best solution for you, rather than just offering a generic solution. “Understanding eyes at work, rest and play” is to assure patients that eye health is our main priority, so that your visual needs are met over your lifetime. It’s more than just clear vision today. With advances in new contact lens materials, some patients now sleep wearing their contacts lenses, which means no more struggling to see the clock at night. If you are looking for clear vision while playing sports but don’t want the commitment of monthly contact lenses, try daily contacts – a great solution for skiing, scuba diving, cycling or just freedom from your glasses for that special night out. Daily contacts are meant for one day of wear, and then you simply throw them away. No hassles with contact lens solutions and storage regiments.

Zig Zag Fashions If there’s one thing stylish women on the Peninsula love, it’s being able to find the hottest fashions and accessories right in their own backyard. At Zig Zag Fashion Boutique in Peninsula Village, you’ll find the most diverse selection of trendy clothes, footwear and accessories, without having to leave White Rock/South Surrey. Kerry The appeal of Zig Zag – a favourite among shoppers on the Peninsula for nearly 20 years – extends beyond the great selection of highly sought-after brands and hard-to-find fashions. The knowledgeable and friendly staff love nothing more than helping customers find the look that suits them perfectly, and will go out of their way to make sure you’re looking better than ever in your new purchase. The store’s wide scope of brand name merchandise makes it one of the best places to shop in town, especially with clothing brands including Not Your Daughter’s Jeans, Esprit, Tribal, Chalet, Niki Biki, Kenneth Cole and Michael Kors. New to the store is the welcome addition of Fidelity Jeans, Kut Jeans and Blue Essence. The store is also the exclusive dealer of Fly London, which helps make up their wide selection of shoe brands including Michael Kors, DKNY, Bussola, Rieker, Kenneth Cole, Naots, Fit Flops and Blundstones for men and women. With so many brands to choose from, it’s no surprise residents are ditching plans to cross the border or head downtown and instead are staying home to satisfy their fashion needs. And the loyalty between Zig Zag staff and customers goes both ways. The store offers a unique discount program that rewards customers with points on every purchase of regular-priced merchandise. When a customer reaches 500 points, they receive a $50 gift card to spend in the store. If it’s your birthday, make sure you take time to visit Zig Zag, as the store offers a 25 per cent discount to help you celebrate your big day. As the fall season edges winter out, expect to see lots of wedges in store, as well as retro polka dots and bright, fun colours to give a pop to an outfit – including leggings from their collection of Hues tights. And to top off any outfit, make sure you take a look at their fabulous selection of jewelry and reading glasses. Whatever style or trend you seek, the friendly staff at Zig Zag Fashion Boutique will help you find the perfect look so you’ll leave their store feeling your best.

One such products is the Nike Lunar Glide – a shoe made with “Lunarlite” cushioning, a concept originally developed by NASA, which has a dynamic support system that not only cushions, but kicks in to stabilize the foot when needed. More than a quality running store, Peninsula Runners has a loyal commitment to our community. Three times a year, Peninsula Runners hosts walking, learn-to-run, run easy and run faster clinics to keep the community involved in a healthy and active lifestyle, while education and motivating the participants. In addition to these running and walking clinics, Peninsula Runners hosts their renowned marathon and half marathon clinics through the year. Whether it’s your first time marathon or you’re a seasoned racer looking for a personal best, this clinic will take you there. The store was a driving force in the campaign to build the South Surrey Track and they continue their commitment by fundraising through their Fraser Valley Trail Run Series which begin January 1st to aid in the maintenance of the track. Their involvement in the community doesn’t end at the track – you will also see them as sponsors of the Peace Arch Hospitals Great Pumpkin Run this October and many other community – for the community - runs. By providing outstanding customer service and supporting the community in a variety of ways, the staff at Peninsula Runners is working hard to encourage a healthy lifestyle in the White Rock and Surrey area. Regardless of whether you’re a recreational walker or a seasoned athlete, the fun, friendly atmosphere at Peninsula Runners, along with the dedicated and helpful staff, will assist you with all your athletic needs.

Debbie Mozelle Designer Optical For more than 20 years, the team at Debbie Mozelle Designer Optical has been proud to serve the community with a smile. The trendy eyewear store has much to offer, including a vibrant and fresh collection of frames from Europe, fit and measured by professionals for ultimate comfort and style.

Debbie Mozelle

Debbie Mozelle Designer Optical’s frame-stylists are waiting to assist clients in choosing the right coloured frame for the season.

“We choose frames based on your colouring and lifestyle,” owner Debbie Mozelle says. “Honesty is our best policy, and that’s why customers keep coming back.”

ALL PLASTIC & METAL FRAMES See in store for details.

Single Vision Lenses with Multi A/R Coating

And for those who think shopping online can save money, Mozelle says the prices for eyewear and contact lenses are about the same as what you find on the Internet, but the big difference is you can see what you buy before you pay, and the staff add the personal touch by adjusting the frame to fit exactly how you like it.

Debbie Mozelle Designer Eyewear

“We are licensed opticians, licensed contact lens fitters and licensed sight testing opticians. We have good quality products at reasonable prices and most frame repairs are done on premises.”

S FRAME Debbie Mozelle Designer Eyewear

The combination of hard-working staff, a friendly and fun atmosphere and fair pricing make Debbie Mozelle an obvious choice for glasses. And if you’re looking for something different, come in and ask Debbie and the team about new wave front digital technology lenses. “They are the latest product, with virtually no distortion,” Debbie said. “Whatever you are looking for, we will help you find it.” And if the big brand names don’t feature the style you are looking for, why not take a look at Debbie Mozelle’s house-brand frames for men and women. The unique and stylish frames are not available anywhere else. And, as an added bonus, customers who order eyewear until Sept. 28 will be entered to win a trip to Mazatlan, Mexico for four people, all-inclusive, including airfare. The trip is valued at $10,000. “We want to thank our customers for their years and years of dedication,” Mozelle said. See in store for details.

NOW OPEN IN PENINSULA VILLAGE

Pistachio Peninsula Village has received a boost of style thanks to the new and very fashionable addition of Pistachio Boutique. Owner Janie Anderson first opened Pistachio Boutique in Abbotsford in 2003, offering women in the Fraser Valley an outstanding shopping experience with Manager, Beth Collins & fashionable pieces paired with great service. Owner, Janie Anderson Now she has opened her second store in Peninsula Village, bringing her passion for fashion with her. “I have many customers, family and friends in White Rock, and I just love the upbeat vibe I feel every time I am there,” Anderson said. “There is so much to offer the fashion consumer in the Village with the other great stores in the mall and the wonderful community feeling between the shops.” Anderson travels all over the world to ensure the boutique is up-to-date with the latest trends. She shops the markets in Vancouver, Montreal, Vegas and L.A. to find the perfect piece to add to your closet. “We offer something for everyone,” Anderson said. “Funky fashions with the latest trend in mind, basics and classics that women will be able to wear for years. Our motto is “Fashion Changes, Style Remains” from Coco Chanel – one of the world’s greatest fashion icons.” But for Anderson and her experienced team, the most important part is helping their clients get exactly what they need, while receiving unbeatable customer service, including the option of booking one-on-one time with a consultant. Pistachio also offers the Pistachio Points Card. For each dollar spent, one point will be added to the card. Anderson is offering double points for every fall purchase made before Sept. 1 and when you reach 1000 points, you receive a $50 gift card. For those who mention this ad, Anderson will add 20 extra points when you sign up. Be sure to stop by Sept. 13 for the Pistachio Grand opening, when Anderson and the team will literally be rolling out the red carpet for the event. As Anderson often says, “Life is short, buy cute clothes.”

Whether you’re just starting out, or are a more serious photographer, Foto Source is the place for local knowledgeable service and quality products at nationally competitive prices. Foto Source started as a small camera counter Kaitlyn in the back of a drug store and has since grown to become South Surrey and White Rock’s only independent photography store and photo lab. In-store photo kiosks, as well as our new updated online print ordering, makes printing your digital files quick and easy, and when you come into the store the staff can also advise you on a variety of personalized photo gift items. In the past year, Foto Source has added the extensive line of ProMaster accessory products including studio lighting supplies, which combined with the ProMaster’ s excellent warranty policy make them an outstanding value. In combination with the Foto Source continuing policy of recycling whenever possible, we are now a designated location where you may drop off any household batteries to be recycled. Among the 8 sales associates at Foto Source there is a combined 200+ years of photography experience, so you’re sure to find the answers to any photographic questions you may have.

Why pay more to print?

Cartridge World When your printer ink is running low, do you hightail it to the nearest big box ofďŹ ce supply store and then cringe every time you pay the bill? If so, you should check out your local Cartridge World, at #12-3189 King George Boulevard. For about half of what it costs to buy new, Cartridge World â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fastest growing ink reďŹ lling retailer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can reďŹ ll or remanufacture 95 per cent of inkjet and laser Mike Kitchen toner cartridges, using top-quality, brand-speciďŹ c ink and toners. Operating more than 1,700 locations in 60 countries, Cartridge World keeps money IN your pocket and hundreds of millions of empty printer cartridges OUT of landďŹ lls every year. This proactive solution to waste reduction is a win-win for customers, entrepreneurs and the environment. Frequently Asked Questions: Q: Is there a risk to using a reďŹ lled cartridge? Not at all! There should be no difference in the print quality after the cartridge is reďŹ lled. Our 100% money back satisfaction guarantee is a sign of our conďŹ dence and removes any risk from you trying our services. Q: How much money will I save by reďŹ lling? Your savings may vary depending on your printer. As a rule of thumb, you can expect to save up to 50 per cent on reďŹ lls at Cartridge World, compared to the cost of a brand new cartridge. In fact, Peninsula businesses and residents are saving hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars every year by making the switch. In addition to savings, Cartridge World also offers their customers the ability to make a choice regarding waste reduction and the environment. Q: Will using reďŹ lled cartridges void the printer manufacturerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warranty? No. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act prohibits the printer manufacturer from voiding the warranty. Printer manufacturers will almost always advise you against reďŹ lling because they want you to keep buying their expensive replacement cartridges and accessories. You can feel conďŹ dent that cartridges sold, reďŹ lled or remanufactured by Cartridge World will meet or exceed your expectations. Our own warranty also extends to your printer on any valid claim! Q: Is cartridge reďŹ lling and remanufacturing the only service Cartridge World provides? No. Cartridge World is a one-stop shop! In addition to a printer/fax/copier repair service, we stock a full selection of new and compatible ink and laser cartridges, copier toners, fax and postage meter supplies, specialty paper and labels.

Promising start for latest White Rock production

Leads flourish at Horrors premiere show T

he Fighting Chance/ White Rock Players’ Club co-production of Little Shop of Horrors is a bright, bold, fun show for those who like their musicals a little twisted – and aren’t too squeamish about large people-eating plants from outer space. Director Ryan Mooney and his team are to be commended for bringing together all the elements of a bang-up entertainment Alex Browne that seemed just shy of hitting its stride at the Aug. 10 official opening of the White Rock run. If that performance, while enjoyable, seemed a bit tense and tentative, it likely had something to do with a hectic preview week in which, among other tribulations, Mooney himself had to take on the additional, strenuous role of ‘plant manipulator.’ While this feat of puppetry didn’t quite work last Friday – at times we had to be content with the largest version of alien life form, Audrey II, opening and closing its mouth in only theoretic synchronization with Nick Fontaine’s marvellously rich vocal characterization – there’s every indication it, like everything else, will click in subsequent performances. This is a smart, funny show – courtesy of Alan Menken and Howard Ashman’s clever pastiche of ’60s musical styles and pop culture references and Mooney’s knowing direction – with an appealing cast, a great set and production dress, and a sizzling five-piece band led by noted music director Vashti Fairbairn. It’s a calibre of effort that the local audience deserves, and which, in turn, deserves to be supported by that audience, particularly in an era in which live theatre – much more stimulating than canned, virtual entertainment, after all – is forced to beg for sustenance. Indeed, there’s more than a slight political edge to reviving this ’80s parody of a ’60s-style B horror movie in today’s economic climate. Even in Roger Corman’s savagely funny 1960 original – a black and white movie with a ‘$1.98’ budget – the black comedy barely conceals metaphors for materialism and economic exploitation. The irony is inescapable when an alien ‘plant’ promises skidrow florist’s assistant Seymour Krelbourn wealth and fame

night – although he did have many strong moments. These included a ludicrous mock tango with Seymour (one of choreographer Angela Cotton’s notable contributions), prompted when Mushnik, fearful of losing control of the young man after he becomes a media celebrity, makes a desperate bid to adopt him as his son. Greg Delmage, on the other hand, seemed a little too relaxed as Audrey’s ‘boyfriend,’ psychotic motorcycle-leathers-wearing dentist Orin Scrivello. His badguy characterization, while entertaining, lacked the manic drive that would push it right over the top (not a bad place to be in a show like this). His assorted multiple supporting roles are also amusing, but, again, restraint is not what’s called for in this kind of vehicle, and one can only hopes he abandons it completely during the course of the run. The Doo Wop Girls (Ria Manansala, White Rock’s Nicole Stevens and Veronika Sztopa) –

who serve as an expository Greek chorus at key points in the plot – are all strong singers who have developed the necessary vocal blend and sense of camaraderie to make a telling contribution to the show (and Oriana Camporese’s costumes succeed in giving them a uniform look, while still highlighting individuality). Overall, Camporese’s costumes – not challenged to reproduce a specific year in the real world – do a good job of evoking the kitschy era just prior to the rise of ‘Flower Power’ in the U.S., as well as a certain shabbiness appropriate to the run-down urban setting. Andrea Olund’s excellent set gives a nod to Moderne architecture – but 25 years of grime later – well decorated by fellow White Rock stalwarts Vanessa Klein and Lisa Pavilionis, while reliable Players Club properties supervisor Naomi Mitchell has come up with a lot of fun pieces, including Scrivello’s daunting arsenal of dubious dental equipment.

Raising funds for Alex House Alex Browne Arts Reporter

In music, when something feels natural – and naturally good – you don’t fight it too hard. And that’s why Mojo Zydeco and The Blues Caboose are coming together as a musical “tag team” to help raise funds for Alexandra Neighbourhood House, Saturday, Aug. 25 at 8 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion Crescent Branch 240, 2643 128 Ave. Billed as a “Raising The Roof Dance,” it’s almost literally that – a chance to raise funds for roof repairs for the hall at the venerable Crescent Beach landmark also known as Camp Alexandra. “I’m a long-standing coffee house guy,” said Mojo leader and Blues Caboose guitarist Randy Schultz, referring to the Crescent Moon Coffee House, for which

Mojo Zydeco is set to perform. Camp Alexandra hall was a former venue. “I’ve got history there.” That’s why the answer was an instant yes when the Legion’s Henri Wendel, also entertainment coordinator for

Camp Alexandra, approached Schultz with the idea of playing a fundraiser for the roofing project. “I immediately came up with the title “Raising The Roof ” – and an idea: let’s have Mojo and Blues Caboose together, raising the roof of the Legion to save the roof of the hall,” he said. “It’s a pretty simple concept for a night of high-energy dance music.” It seems appropriate that such visceral roots music be employed in the service of the historic hall, originally built in 1916 as part of the Alexandra Fresh Air Camp – a summer facility for children from Vancouver’s Alexandra Orphanage. Today it’s part of the Association of Neighborhood Houses of B.C., an evolution of the organization to which the original Alexandra Orphanage  see page 41

People want good family counsel in whom they will have conÀdence. They want to deal personally with their own lawyer. They want to be heard, to get ‘straight’ advice and timely, effective service at a reasonable cost. And, it helps if it is close by. From simple divorces to principled negotiations and agreements, from Supreme Court Chambers and Trial work, to the Court of Appeal, I provide a complete package of legal experience and expertise, as may be required by the needs of my clients. The importance of obtaining independent legal advice upon marital breakdown cannot be over-emphasized. A negotiated agreement is always the optimal objective. Sometimes, however, emotional or other dynamics may intervene and the timely protection or the advancement of one’s rights may be necessary. Delay can be prejudicial. So, it is important to Ànd out where you stand and your options. If you live or work here, I am easily accessible.

Performers plan to play one set each  from page 39 belonged. Schultz’s wife, Jane, rub-board queen of Mojo Zydeco, said that, realistically, the gig can only start the process of re-roofing the hall. “We’ll raise a few shingles, but probably not the whole roof,” she said, laughing. “Hopefully, it’ll be the beginning of a series of events that support the cause – it’s wonderful to do local things like this.” The gig marks the return of Blues Caboose, well remembered but long-missing on the local scene, Schultz said. “It hasn’t been a band for a long time, although it came out of the closet a couple of times over the last

decade,” he said. Because most of the current line-up of Mojo Zydeco are also past players in Blues Caboose, the logistics of bringing the two bands together are not quite as difficult as they might sound, Schultz said. “The leader of Blues Caboose, was and is (guitarist-vocalist) Tony Rees, and we’re really only bringing in accordionist Sue Bains to make it Mojo Zydeco and Harriet Quint to relieve Jane on rubboard.” Although he’s long been dedicated to bringing Zydeco – the highly-charged, rhythm heavy music of rural Louisiana – to B.C. audiences, Schultz

continues to be a fan of Rees original concept; taking obscure blues from the 1920s and 1930s and playing them in a modern blues format. At the time he talked to the Peace Arch News, Schultz had not yet decided how the evening would be programmed. “We’re not sure how

“SURVEY SAYS!”

we’re going to do it,or who goes first” he said. “We’re obviously going to do a set each, but we’d also like to try to fuse both bands together – add in the accordion and the rub-board.” Tickets ($20) are available from the Legion, Camp Alexandra and tickets. surrey.ca

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

U18 and U16 boys teams go undefeated

Two gold, two bronze for B.C. rugby sides Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

On the flight home from Quebec earlier this week, every member of Team BC’s rugby program needed to pass a medal through the security check. Four provincial rugby sides – which included 17 players from South Surrey, Cloverdale and White Rock – finished on the podium at the Rugby Canada National Championship Festival, which wrapped up Aug. 12 in Sherbrooke, Que. Team BC’s U18 and U16 boys teams both rolled through nationals

undefeated en route to gold medals, while B.C.’s U18 girls team and U16-2 (development) team claimed bronze. The U18 boys – which had former Semiahmoo Totem Dylan Kiselbach, and former Earl Marriott Mariners Quinton Willms and Ian McMaster on the roster – won their gold-medal game convincingly, 40-16 over Alberta. In the semifinals, they edged their rivals from Ontario, 25-19. “This is a great group of guys… They are a diverse team which shows how much talent we have all around the

province. This is a great way for them to finish off their under-18 rugby careers,” said BC head coach Jeff Williams. “We had a tough game against Ontario yesterday and a lot of the guys were pretty beat up. I think it says a lot about their character that they were able to go out and play like they just did. Heading into today’s final we were striving for a complete game and I think we came pretty close to that.” The U16 champs, meanwhile, edged Ontario 15-13 to take top spot, one day  see page A45

Bayside trio complete 47-km trail trek

Run off ‘bucket list’ Nick Greenizan

ext time, they’ll bring more water. That lesson, more than any other, is what Bryan Sommer, Brendan Singbeil and Mike Fraser took from their grueling 47-km Juan de Fuca Trail run earlier this month. The three friends, and member of the Bayside Sharks Rugby Club, set out on the run – along the southwestern edge of Vancouver Island – on Aug. 4, in part to raise money for Bayside’s Adopta-Shark program, which pays registration and equipment costs for young players who could not otherwise afford to take up the sport. They also laced up their trail-running shoes simply to see if they were up for the challenge. In both cases, the run was a success. The trio raised about $1,000 – enough for four youngsters to play rugby next season – and also proved that, years after they all stopped playing competitive rugby, they were still able to complete a grueling, physical feat. The run was not without it’s difficulties, however. “It was hot out. Really hot. And we ran out of water with about 10 kilometres to go, so that made it a bit of a struggle at the end,” Sommer said. Still, they completed the 47-km run in about nine hours, which, Sommer said, was not quite what they were aiming for, but were proud of nonetheless. “It was a little longer than we would have liked, but we’re happy

we did it. For me, it was one of those things on my bucket list.” Sommer admitted all three were sore for a while after the run’s conclusion, but “not so sore that we couldn’t walk or anything, but it took its toll.” “We were all in decent shape. Mike is a firefighter and Brendan still plays with Bayside’s third

division team, so we had a good (fitness) base,” he explained. “But playing rugby isn’t quite the same as running long distance. On the field, you run a short burst and hit someone. This was a little different.” The team took their first short running break at the 29-km mark – where family members met up

with them – and Sommer admits drop-off into water. they got some strange looks from “But it was just beautiful out others on the trail, most of whom there.” were walking at a leisurely pace.

Seven Bayside players on girls team  from page A43 after beating B.C.’s other U16 team in semifinals, 24-5. Five local players dotted the U16 lineup – Drew Coles, Nick Collett, Nico Docolas, Calixto Martinez and Gavin Rowell, while two more – Tim Stephens and Nick Wright – suited up for the B.C. development team. That squad won bronze with a 12-7 win over Ontario-2. The U18 girls team lost just once during round-robin action – a 15-10 loss to Alberta – but also earned three wins by shutout: 13-0 over Saskatchewan, 48-0 over Manitoba and 92-0 over New Brunswick. In semifinal action, Team BC again fell to Alberta, 13-8, but rebounded in the bronze-medal match, beating Quebec 13-0.

EDUCATION

KATHLEEN CUFF, March 21, 1923 - August 9, 2012 N Kathleen [Starling] Cuff, our much-loved Mother, was so much more. She was the loving wife and partner of our father Bill [William Cuff], a fun and funny ‘Gramma’ with her grandchildren, a life-long friend to many, and a lively, spirited lady to all whom she encountered. Surrounded by her family in presence and spirit, ‘Momma’ - Kathleen Constance Una Cuff - slipped away August 9th at the age of 89. Husband Bill in 2006, youngest son Donald in 1983, and grandson Peter James in 1988, predeceased her. Those who have known ‘Kay’ would appreciate that she never lost her indomitable spirit. That very will and determination marked to her last breath, Kay’s most precious role in life – Mother to 8 children, grandmother to 17, and greatgrandmother to 10. Kathleen, never passive about life, was however rarely selfish about her dreams and expectations. Born in Sherbrooke, Quebec in 1923, she grew up an only child in depression-era Timmins, Ontario amidst tarpapered miners’ houses, where her father toiled in the Hollinger and Schumacher gold mines, and her quirky mother crocheted, and baked bread, always with a cigarette dangling from her lips. Kay’s remarkable journey to articulate, well-mannered beauty set her on the path that would mark her life. She carved her contribution with self-taught determination and a bulldog spirit. Her strong will took her from high-performance swimmer and Girl Guide extraordinaire, to beauty school at age 17 where she mastered the dreaded perms she would later inflict on her five daughters, to serving in the Women’s Division of the Royal Canadian Air Force at the age of 19. Kay’s Cockney British-born father, George, who himself had enlisted at age 16 during WWI, saw his daughter Kay to the train with pride, to be stationed in Dauphin, Manitoba where Kay served in the flight control tower, worked the station’s telephone switchboard, and met her future husband. An occasional hint of Kay’s many suitors became part of the legend of our mother and father’s life - their great 63year love affair, marriage in uniform during wartime, and subsequent struggles to make a home and provide a livelihood for their growing family while Bill attended the University of Toronto. From cramped shared apartments to log houses in remote forestry camps, to 40-plus years in White Rock, Kay always managed to create a home and gathering place for both family and friends. Her innate artistry, love of surprises, and laughter made ours the venue of choice for special occasions. Whether a birthday, a football game, or ‘sing-along with Mitch’ at the cottage, every gathering carried her special touch which had less to do with what we had or didn’t have, and everything with how special she made us all feel. Amazingly, Kay and Bill always made time for each other. They were defined by their roles as parents and decisionmakers, but still maintained their romance. They explored other countries on wonderful trips, yet enjoyed the simplicity of camping in BC. They golfed, walked, and played daily crib games for years. To suggest that motherhood is a simple life is to miss the essence of Kathleen Starling Cuff. Kay lived her life with great courage, inventiveness, and drive. She invested so much of herself in her commitment to raise healthy, responsible, and caring children. Momma, a master at it, possessed that rare talent to be both strict and funny at the same time. She was loved without reservation by her extended family including spouses and partners. Kathleen will be missed as long as her great legacy. She was a peach! At Kay’s request there will be no formal memorial service. Donations to Alzheimer’s Dementia research or to the Alzheimer’s Society would be a wonderful tribute.

VOICE OF WHITE ROCK AND SOUTH SURREY

‘No pipeline push’: Despite suggestions to the contrary, Prime Minister Stephen Harper says his government won’t push through the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline, and will instead leave the decision to the experts.  see page B4

Black Press

eep in the maze that is Surrey Memorial Hospital, hidden away from patients and visitors alike, is a critical cog in the medical machine. While people will often hear doctors or nurses talk about sending something to the lab, they’ve never seen the place responsible for nearly three-quarters of patient care decisions made in a hospital. At SMH, the lab is a busy place occupying two floors with its six departments: medical microbiology, medical biochemistry, hematopathology, anatomical pathology, transfusion medicine and accessioning. In the microbiology lab, Heather Kelly, 38, is one of the people in the yellow bunny suits handling patients’ fluid samples. Samples of what? “My kids say the poop and the pee.” In more technical terms, samples include urine, stool, blood, lung fluid and various human tissues – swabs of animal bites, surgical sites, even placentas. Kelly is a bacteria grower. She gives the example of strep throat, caused (usually) by a Group A betahemolytic streptococcus. “You’ve got a sore throat, you go to the doctor and he takes a swab. He sends it to me, I put it on a plate the first day and it gets incubated.” The next day, she has a look at it. “From this, I’m going to decide what’s important” – she must differentiate the “bad” bacteria from the “good” normally found in a throat culture. “Our job is to isolate the bad bacteria – the stuff that’s going to cause you problems.” Although the 10-cm wide covered plates she handles look colour-coded with different shades of red, pink or brown, what gives them the colour is the growing medium on which the sample is placed. “Chocolate grows tons of bacteria,” Kelly says, holding a brown plate of blood agar, a jelly-like composite of seaweed and mammal blood – named “chocolate” for its colour, not composition. Another common one is MacConkey agar, used to grow gram-negative bacteria.

Boaz Joseph photos

Heather Kelly grows and analyzes bacteria (left) for a living at Surrey Memorial Hospital.

Depending on the predicted microbe types, or the “bad” bacteria being isolated, the plates are put into aerobic (oxygen), anaerobic (no oxygen) or carbon-dioxide incubators. Specific pathogens are identified by their shapes as they grow, usually in 24-48 hours. (The lab’s protocol for urine is 24 hours; lung samples can take seven days or longer to incubate.) Many of the bugs are easy for lab veterans to identify and will all look different from each other on the plates: blobs, fuzzies or swarms, for lack of better terms.

around the region Government provided $16.8 in community funding this year

B.C. arts grants maintained Tom Fletcher Black Press

Cabinet minister Ida Chong and B.C. Arts Council chair Stan Hamilton announce a grant fund at Victoria Public Library Monday.

The B.C. government has provided $16.8 million for community arts and culture grants for the current year, matching last year’s total with help from a dwindling 2010 Olympic legacy fund. Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Ida Chong announced the funding Monday in Victoria, along with B.C. Arts Council chair Stan Hamilton. The BCAC has juries that assess funding applications, and has already doled out about $6 million of this year’s budget. With less than half the money allocated in Chong’s current ministry budget, another $6.75 million came from the 2010 Sports and Arts Legacy. That $60-million fund was created in the 2010 budget to off-

set earlier recession-driven cuts to adult arts and sports organizations from provincial gambling revenues. It will be gone after this year, and there is no indication where it might be made up next year. When the recession hit in 2008, the B.C. Liberal government cut grant funding from the B.C. Lottery Corp. from $156 million to $113 million, then raised it back to $120 million to restore funds to school district parent advisory councils. Applicants were told that arts and sports funding from lotteries would be restricted to organizations for young people and the disabled. Premier Christy Clark promised to restore funds while campaigning for the party leadership last year. Once elected, she announced

a $15-million increase in gambling funds for a range of organizations including community service clubs, fairs, festivals and museums. Chong said she sometimes meets artists and organizations who are not aware that they can apply to the B.C. Arts Council for grants. Eligibility requirements and application forms are available at www. bcartscouncil.ca. The largest recipients of arts council funding include the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra ($1.2 million last year), the Vancouver Art Gallery ($630,000) and the Vancouver International Film Festival ($82,000). Chong said more than 1,000 grants are given out to 200 B.C. communities, including $1.1 million to writers, publishers and literary festivals, as well as scholarships for new writers.

After targeting provincial ministry offices with their second oneday strike, the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union says the provincial government has followed through on its threat to withdraw its offered wage increase. BCGEU negotiators had rejected a raise of two per cent this year and 1.5 per cent next year when it was presented in late June. Citing a two-year wage freeze leading up to this year’s negotiations, the union wants 3.5 this year and a raise equivalent to the cost of living increase for 2013. The latest one-day strike created a four-day long weekend for 180 employees in provincial ministry offices Tuesday. BCGEU members refused to work at three forests ministry offices, with 40 staff in Surrey, 50 in Campbell River and 60 combined at transportation and forest ministry offices in 100 Mile House.

A man accused of assault and uttering threats on the same night of a 2010 apartment blaze in Guildford pleaded guilty last week in Surrey Provincial Court. Alvaro Flores, 30, was initially charged with two counts of assault, one count of uttering threats to cause bodily harm and one count of breach of undertaking. On Wednesday, he pleaded guilty to one count of assault and one count of uttering threats. The other charges were dropped. The Dec. 12, 2010 assault occurred just prior to a suspicious

fire at Bon Terra Apartments near 150 Street and 107 Avenue that destroyed six units in the North Surrey building. Police had recommended a charge of arson/disregard for human life against Flores, but it was not pursued by Crown counsel. Neil MacKenzie, spokesperson for the Criminal Justice Branch, said there wasn’t enough evidence to pursue the arson charges. “The Crown concluded there was not any substantial likelihood of conviction on any arson-related charge against him,” MacKenzie said. “The Crown reviewed

Pipeline won’t be imposed, Harper says Harper told reporters he has spoken with B.C. Premier Christy Clark and other premiers about pipelines, but those conversations are private. It’s his first public comment since a dispute erupted between Clark and Alberta Premier Alison Redford in July over Clark’s demand for more revenues. “I’m not going to get into an argument or discussion about how we divide hypothetical revenues,” Harper said. He did emphasize that in general, it is important for Canada to diversify its trade and open up new markets in Asia. The federal government is planning “huge investments” to improve environmental protection for shipping resource material, but it won’t favour any individual project, he said.

35 per cent ‘completely opposed’

Open minds on pipeline: poll Despite the media focus on spills and protests against new oil pipelines proposed for B.C., about half of respondents in a recent poll are open to changing their minds based on economic or environmental factors. The Angus Reid survey of 804 B.C. residents found 35 per cent completely opposed to the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway line from northern Alberta to port facilities at Kitimat. Only seven per cent indicated unqualified support for the line. Another 27 per cent said they support the

Enbridge proposal but could change their minds based on economic benefits or environmental protection. Similarly, 24 per cent were opposed but open to reconsidering. The survey asked participants what they think of Premier Christy Clark’s five preconditions for provincial support of the Enbridge project. About a third of respondents said they would more likely back the project if Clark’s demand of “world-leading” marine and land-based spill response was met. – Tom Fletcher

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has rejected suggestions his government is considering pushing through the proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline across northern B.C. Harper was asked about Enbridge Inc.’s pipeline project at a stop in Vancouver last week, and the frequent accusation that he has already decided it is in the national interest for it to proceed. “I’ve been very clear that decisions on these kinds of projects are made through an independent evaluation conducted by scientists into the economic costs and risks that are associated with the project,” Harper said Aug. 7. “I think that’s the only way governments can handle controversial projects of this

oil pipeline from Alberta to port and refinery facilities in Burnaby, to transport more heavy oil from the Athabasca oil sands. But the company has not yet formally applied for federal environment assessment. Clark initially said her government would wait until the federal assessment of Enbridge is concluded in 2013 before deciding whether to support it. Then in late July, the B.C. government presented a list of five preconditions, including a positive recommendation from the federal review. The others are “world-leading” oil spill prevention and response capability on land and at sea, meeting legal requirements to consult and accommodate aboriginal groups along pipeline routes, and a “fair share” of oil revenues for B.C.

Bluetree Homes and Wesgroup Properties announce The Brewery District

Brewing up ‘an exciting ... place to live’ Bluetree Homes and Wesgroup Properties are teaming up to bring the Brewery District to New Westminster.

European-style living

Leave the car behind at Morgan Crossing by Kerry Vital

When you live at South Surrey’s Morgan Crossing, loneliness is a thing of the past. With more than 60 shops and services right outside your front door, including Winners, Steve Nash Sports Club and Thrifty Foods, there is literally something for everyone, and you’ll rapidly run out of excuses for being a couch potato. Creating a community feel is the core of the entire concept, says Bryan Woolley of Fingerprint Strategies. Developed by Larco Investments, the company behind the Village at Park Royal, Morgan Crossing has the feel of a European-style village. One of the advantages in living in Morgan Crossing is its easy walkability and proximity to nearly everything you would need on a day-to-day basis. With shops, restaurants and fitness right outside your front door, it won’t take long to run your daily errands. “You can go in your pajamas and your slippers if you want!” laughs Woolley. Larco has been very successful in creating a village feel when you walk into Morgan Crossing, and Woolley says that there is a wide range of demographics buying homes, from 19-year-olds just starting out to seniors downsizing. “If you don’t like people, this isn’t the place to be,” Woolley says, adding that when you walk out your door, you’re almost guaranteed to meet someone that you know. The homes at Morgan Crossing are chic and modern, with generous patios and balconies, electric fireplaces and hardwood laminate floors throughout the main living areas. The kitchens feature European laminate cabinets, soft-close drawers (no more door slamming), granite and silestone countertops and an elegant glass or mosaic stainless-steel backsplash. The bathrooms are perfect for relaxing after a long day, with chic porcelain and ceramic tile flooring, granite and marble countertops and roomy tubs with hand-set ceramic tile surrounds. There are many different floorplans available, ranging from one to three bedrooms, some with dens. With the number of plans available, you will have no trouble finding the perfect home for you. Looking to be right in the middle of the action? Finding a home on the main street would work for you.

Perhaps a mountain view is your style? Morgan Crossing has several homes with that gorgeous scenery. “The biggest draw is the village,” Woolley says. “You’re not spending time going to the disparate pieces of your life ... it’s a more sustainable lifestyle. We don’t get too many people driving between stores.” One of the great things about living in Morgan Crossing is the variety of community events that are held frequently, including car shows, outdoor movie nights and festivals. The community is “so vibrant and interesting,” Woolley says. With the warmer weather on its way, he expects that the outdoor walkways will soon be bustling. Homes start at $234,900. For more information, visit morgancrossing.ca or call 604-582-1336.

If you don’t like people, this isn’t the place to be,” says Bryan Woolley of Fingerprint Strategies.

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
