By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A fire at the Dulux Paints store on Barnet Highway may have been sparked by roofing materials. Coquitlam Fire/Rescue Chief Tony Delmonico said they received about 30 calls Monday, just before 6:30 p.m., reporting the billowing black smoke coming off the roof of the building at 2764 Barnet Hwy. Two engines and 17 fire fighters battled the rooftop blaze.

Coroner to look into Salemink death Inquiry into the 2010 death to be held in November By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The BC Coroners Service will hold an inquest into the death of Coquitlam’s Colette Marie Salemink. The 59-year-old woman died on April 19, 2010 in a fire at her Burian Drive home. Her son, Blake Salemink, was charged with arson and

manslaughter and was recently found not criminally responsible by reason of a mental disorder. H i s s i s t e r, E r i c a Salemink, told The TriCity News last month that her kid brother was a sweetheart who became troubled in his teenage years. He was in and out of Royal Columbian Hospital and, later, Riverview Hospital, but he managed to finish high school and later attended cooking school on Vancouver Island. But in early 2010 the fights between Blake

and his mother became more frequent, and Coquitlam RCMP were called to attend Salemink’s home several times. On April 13, 2010 a mental health warrant was issued, which would have put Blake back in Riverview. But when he met with his caseworker two days later, the warrant wasn’t executed, despite the fact that he appeared giddy and admitted to having auditory hallucinations. Blake returned to his mother’s home and, on April 17, police were

called again after Blake threatened to hire a hit man to kill his mother. But when police arrived Colette told officers she didn’t believe her son was a threat, and he wasn’t taken into custody. In the early morning hours of April 19, it’s believed that Blake piled some old recipes on the floor of a downstairs room and set them on fire. He left in a taxi, crossed the U.S. border and headed for Mexico. Blake was arrested later that day in Oregon. During the inquest,

scheduled to take place Nov. 13 to 16 at the Burnaby Coroners Court, presiding coroner Liana Wright and a jury will hear evidence from subpoenaed witnesses to deter mine the facts surrounding Salemink’s death. The jury may not, by law, make any findings of legal responsibility, but it will have the opportunity to make recommendations aimed at preventing deaths under similar circumstances in the future. — with files from Gary McKenna

Centennial totem pole has a story Three ready to

run in Anmore byelection set for Sept. 22

By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

t rests on a concrete pad, bolted upright with two aluminum bars, tucked behind Coquitlam’s Dogwood Pavilion on Poirier Street. And even though it’s 16 metres tall and has been there for 45 years, it’s still hard to find a local resident who knows of its existence. The presence of the totem pole came up last spring when someone stood before a townhall meeting to enquire of its origins. City council and staff were stumped, and tasked the municipality’s arts and culture advisory committee to do some digging on the topic. In stepped Christopher Moreno, a committee member and Coquitlam resident, who volunteered to take on the research project. The pole, as it turns out, is one of four that were carved in 1967 as part of a community-driven initiative organized by the Columbian, a regional newspaper that once served Surrey, New Westminster, Burnaby and Coquitlam. The project, aimed to mark Canada’s 100th birthday and bring attention to the First Nations, involved raising from the readers $1 per inch to install a totem pole in each of the four cities the newspaper was distributed in. Surrey’s structure, located on the Surrey Municipal Centre grounds, is 12 metres tall and has four figures — an eagle, bear, beaver and frog — carved in the Kwakwaka’wakw tradition of northwest coast First Nations art. That city lists its totem pole maker as John Edward “Ted” Neel (the son of well-known carver Ellen Neel), who is also named on a plaque at the back of Coquitlam’s pole, along with Lloyd Wadhams and Robert Whonnock. The Coquitlam pole also differs with its colours and characters. Carved into the heavy cedar wood are a thunderbird, a heron with a fish, a man and a frog/lizard. Piecing together the background of the four poles hasn’t been easy. Recently, he rifled through archives and spoke with civic leaders and now Moreno plans to visit with the SFU anthropology department and First Nations groups to uncover the pole’s story. Coquitlam city council will also look at helping out financially. Last month, it voted to consider putting money aside in next year’s budget for more research as well as sprucing up the immediate area and promoting the pole online. jwarren@tricitynews.com

Three people are vying for a seat on Anmore council but only one of them is a village resident. Nominations closed last Friday for the byelection, which is being held to fill the chair left vacant in June by former councilor Tim Laidler. Candidates have until this Friday to withdraw their application. Running in the Sept. 22 race are Arthur Crossman of Coquitlam, Sagheer (Sager) Jan of Port Moody, and Anmore’s Ann-Marie Thiele. Under provincial legislation, contestants wanting to hold office don’t have to live in the municipality in which the election is happening. Crossman, who is retired, is well-known locally on the election circuit, having run in Anmore against Heather Anderson for mayor in 2010. Crossman has also sought civic seats in Coquitlam and campaigned for a provincial job (in 2005, he ran as an independent against BC Liberal MLA Iain Black, gaining 227 votes). Jan has worked as a logistics manager and planning assistant with the United Nations in Monrovia, Liberia. He holds a bachelor of science degree from the University of Karachi. Jan, who ran for the BC Reform Party in 1989 in Vancouver, cites development and sustainability as his platforms. And Thiele is a stay-at-home mother-of-three who is running for office for the first time. She wants to create sustainable and affordable housing in the village, and explore options for the Ioco lands. “My focus is on the future of Anmore,” she said. Laidler, who was elected last November, quit two months ago in protest over council’s decision to hire Tim Harris as the village’s chief administration officer. Laidler said he does not believe Harris is qualified for the job and claimed “outside sources” interfered with the hiring process. jwarren@tricitynews.com

The recent heat wave is threatening the Port Coquitlam blueberry crop and farmer Karam Dhanwant, owner of Ankars Farms, is encouraging people to come by and pick berries to get them off the bushes.

Pick berries and name your price, says worried farmer By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A Port Coquitlam blueberry farmer is offering up his crops for a song to spare them from the sudden summer heat. “Because of the weather — it was wet in the spring and cold, and now it’s too hot — we are

losing our crop,” said Karam Dhanwant, owner of Ankars Farms. “Instead of losing them, why not have people come and take it?” Dhanwant is welcoming people to his two farms, at 2952 Burns Rd. and 440 Prairie Rd. to pick the blueberries before they’re melted by the sun.

Aug. 26: BRICKHOUSE

The buckets of berries need to be weighed for crop insurance purposes, and Dhanwant said people can pay whatever they feel is fair. “There’s no fixed price,” he said for the non-spray blueberries. The farms are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week.

A number of solar-powered parking stations now dot Pinetree Way in Coquitlam near Town Centre Park and Douglas College’s David Lam campus, ready for their Sept. 1 start-up. By the middle of next month, a total of 22 machines, monitored by Precise Parklink Inc., will be operational along the busy corridor as well as at the City Centre Aquatic Complex, Pinetree community centre, Evergreen Cultural Centre and Lincoln Street parking lot as well as on Glen Drive, The High Street and Town Centre Boulevard. Although the city previously lost thousands of dollars on metered pay parking in Town Centre over a number of years, the parking management program is expected to be “revenue neutral” for taxpayers as of next year, said Dan Mooney, Coquitlam’s manager of roads and traffic operations. As for the 75 cent-per-hour price, the devices will accept credit cards and cash.

Information sought in Sunday morning stabbing A man in his 20s is recovering in hospital after he was stabbed several times in Coquitlam early Sunday. The man was walking in the Austin Heights neighbourhood, near Blue Mountain Street, between 2 and 4 a.m. when someone de-

manded valuables from the victim. He fought back and ran to a nearby 7-Eleven store, where he realized he’d been stabbed several times during the scuffle, police said. The stab wounds were superficial and no vital organs were damaged.

Coquitlam RCMP are looking for a suspect described as a Caucasian man in his 40s with a dark complexion and a long scruffy grey beard. He was wearing a baseball hat with stains on it and appeared to be homeless. Cpl. Jamie Chung said the

incident does not appear to be related to the rash of recent business robberies in the area. Anyone with information about the stabbing is asked to call police at 604-945-1580 and quote file number 2012-22933, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477.

Murder in 1995 shocked city continued from front page

IN QUOTES

Annette’s seven-yearold boy witnessed the event and ran away. Bertrand then drove a short distance to the Roufosse’s home on Therrien Street, where he tried to kick down the front door. He smashed through the front door window and, when he started walking toward a neighbour, Annette Roufosse, 29, walked out of the basement. She was car rying her and Bertrand’s oneyear-old baby, with their three-year-old beside her, when Bertrand stabbed her 11 times. He then grabbed the children and drove to his parents’ south Burnaby home, where he was arrested a short time later after he called 911 for an ambulance to treat a severed tendon in his finger. At the time, Bertrand was under a court order not to contact Annette or her children after being charged with assault and sexual assault involving one of her children. The killings gutted the Roufosse family and stunned the close-knit Maillardville community. “Henry and Celine’s door was always open and their help, advice and good company they gave without limit,” said Fr. Stan Frytek, the parish priest at Our Lady of Lourdes in 1995, at their funeral. Just five days earlier, Frytek had rushed outside the church to perform the last rites on his dying friends in the church parking lot. In June 1996, on the day his trial was to start in B.C. Supreme Court for three counts of first-degree murder, Bertrand stood up to plead guilty to seconddegree murder. “He should get life, of course,” said Gerry Roufosse, the eldest of Henry and Celine’s four children, said outside the courtroom at the time. Bertrand was later sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 20 years. At the hearing he broke down in sobs, saying he couldn’t ask for the family’s forgiveness because he couldn’t forgive himself. “I only wish there was a death sentence for my deeds,” Bertrand said. Just 10 years into his sentence, however, Bertrand applied for escorted day passes so that he could see his mother and buy plants for his prison projects. The application was denied, though Bertrand was eligible to re-apply for day passes after six months. He would have been eligible for unescorted leaves this year, and for full parole in

Boating community celebrates By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Members of the Old Mill Boathouse Society will be celebrating the 10th year anniversary of the construction of their facility at Rocky Point Park in Por t Moody at a gala on Sunday. The building, which is home to eight member clubs — including the Port Moody Canoe and Kayak Club, the Nothin’ Dragon Boaters and the Abreast In A Boat dragon boat club — has been a fixture among local sailors and boaters for the last decade, said society president Gordon Clay. “We have been working on this since 1971,” he said. “It really didn’t begin in earnest until the 1980s. Then it took us another 20 years to get it.”

Clay said the building features 100-yearold roof trusses, which were salvaged from the old saw sharpening building at Flavelle Cedar when it was demolished in 1995.

• The gala will take place at the Old Mill Boathouse (2715 Esplanade St., adjacent to Rocky Point Park in Port Moody) on Aug. 26, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. There will be displays,

refreshments, videos of the activities of various member clubs. The public is welcome to attend. For more information about the Old Mill Boathouse go to www. oldmillboathouse.com.

Bears back in forest Bears found in school dumpster set free By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

W h e n t h re e b e a r cubs were brought to Langley’s Critter Care last fall after being found scared and hungry in a dumpster at a Coquitlam middle school, the animals weighed approximately 40 lb. apiece. Fast-forward nine months and the once cuddly cubs are now 180 lb. adults, healthy and strong enough to be released back into the wild in the spring. And although Elaine Stirling and her fellow Critter Care volunteers miss the animals, she hopes to never see them again. “The idea is to get them as far away as possible,� she told d The TriCity News. “We don’t want to see them again. If we see them, that means they are interfering with humans and we don’t want that.� When the three bear cubs ar rived at the Langley rehabilitation centre in October, they were still feeling the effects of a tranquilizer. There mother, an animal authorities deemed to habituated to humans, had been euthanized. But the three younger bears were examined and found to be in excellent health. They were given names — Kira, Rose and Kaymona — and placed in an enclosure with two other bears, one from North Vancouver and another that was trapped in Whistler.

These are just some of the bears that Langley Critter Care has been looking after. On Sept. 18, the wildlife rehabilitation organization is holding a walkathon. Stirling said Critter Care makes sure the animals are strong and fat before re-introducing them into the wild, where they will have to fend for themselves. While the animals are expected to lose a bit of weight in the first few weeks after leaving captivity, she said it does not take long for them to re-integrate with nature. “It is in their psyche,� she said. “They do know how to do all this stuff.� The hope is that the bears will forage on berries and fish until their denning period begins in the winter. If the rehabilitation has been a success, the animals will not return to residential areas and never be seen again.

Top debater has big plans Kwon bests older youth in competition By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

You have one hour to prepare arguments in favour of returning the Falkland Islands to Argentina, with no access to the internet or other research materials. Now do the same for a ban on smoking, abolishing individual countries’ veto rights at the United Nations and a handful of other topics. Coquitlam resident Luciano Kwon, who recently finished Grade 6 at the Pacific Academy in Surrey, delivered those debates with such persuasiveness that, by the end of the Heart of Europe Debating Tournament, the youngster was ranked fifth out of 140 competitors, most of whom are nearing their high school graduations. Speaking against a ban on smoking, Kwon cited the chaos of the Prohibition era and the rise of Mexican drug cartels as evidence that well-intentioned legislation can lead to serious public safety threats. “It really takes a lot of critical thinking,” said the bow-tied Kwon. “You have to think really, really hard.” Kwon just got into debating this year, when he entered the regional novice competition. He competed against students from 17 other schools throughout the Lower Mainland, many of them in Grade 8; his team finished first by an unheard-of 12 points. “The difference between first and second is usually one or two points,” Kwon said. Spurred on by his surprising success, Kwon moved on to the provincials. He finished first in the individual public speaking and debate divisions. “This is phenomenal,” beamed his father, Antonio Kwon. “It’s unheard of, even at the regionals, for a Grade 6 to be the top debater against Grade 8s.” At the national competition Kwon was ranked 12th out of 68 competitors in a division that included students up to Grade 9. Kwon cobbled together a team for the Heart of Europe tournament, which took place July 27 to Aug. 3 in Olomouc, Czech Republic, where 140 students from 19 countries sparred over a variety of subjects. He was the youngest person at the

tournament by three grade levels. His team was eliminated after eight preliminary rounds of debate, but Kwon’s individual perfor mance ear ned him the fifth-place standing by points. He attributes his success to rhetorical prowess and a passion for learning, which has him exploring everything from history to psychology to math, a subject at which he proudly announces he’s operating at a Grade 10 level. “The sport of debating combines every learning subject and makes it into a super sport,” Kwon said. A voracious reader, Kwon gobbles up current events information by reading the BBC online, The Globe and Mail and The Economist every morning. In the evening, he visits the same sites to see how stories have evolved throughout the day. It’s all part of his five-point plan, Kwon states, starting with a spot on Canada’s national debating team, attending Stanford or Harvard universities, becoming a lawyer and, one day, Canada’s first Asian prime minister (a Liberal one, he figures). His father reminds the youngster to be humble, that his search for knowledge is like “finding one piece of gravel on the beach.”

We’re winners R

PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside

emarkably, the Tri-Cities was represented by no fewer than six athletes at the recent 2012 London Olympics. More incredibly, three of those went on to win medals. Krista Guloien of Port Moody captured silver in women’s eight rowing, while the Coquitlam pair of women’s team pursuit cyclist Jasmin Glaesser and women’s soccer player Brittany Timko each earned bronze. The three were among the only 18 medals — one gold, five silver and 12 bronze — won by Canada. A bonus was the fact Coquitlam’s Brittany Rogers became the first Canadian women’s artistic gymnast to make apparatus finals at both the World Championships (2009) and the Olympics, where she placed seventh in the vault. Also, Rogers was part of the Canadian women’s gymnastics team that finished a best-ever fifth overall. While winning a medal is every Olympian’s goal and dream, simply qualifying for the Games takes incredible determination, hard work and skill. Others to have done so included BMX cyclist Tory Nyhaug and wrestler Haislan Garcia, both of Coquitlam. Nyhaug was another athlete with a remarkable subplot story line. The 20-year-old ruptured his spleen during a competition last May for the second time in less than two years and needed to have the non-vital organ removed. He recovered just in time to qualify for Canadian men’s BMX squad at the Games and was a mere fraction away from making the event’s final. Like all that isn’t enough, the Tri-Cities boasts two others — Coquitlam blind sprinter Dustin Walsh and partially paralyzed 10 m air rifle shooter Doug Blessin of Port Coquitlam — who will toil in the 2012 London Paralympics, which begin next Wednesday. Medals aside, these athletes are testimony to just how strong our community is in athletics and are wonderful role models for showing such diligence and prowess to qualify among the best in the world in their respective sports. Considering the Tri-Cities owns a population of just over 200,000, it was indeed quite an achievement. Remarkable, in fact.

Time for an investment in B.C.’s depleted forests BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA – The B.C. government’s emergency committee on timber supply has produced its report, but it leaves many of the big questions unanswered. Can the Burns Lake sawmill, destroyed by fire last winter, be given enough timber to rebuild? It’s likely, committee members concluded, if areas that are currently considered “marginally economic” are harvested. With nearly half the pine in that region dead from beetle infestation, and much of the better timber already cut, that means harvesting areas that would produce only about two thirds of the volume that is currently considered economical to log. Will eight more sawmills have to close once the beetle-killed timber becomes too degraded to cut in the next few years? Committee members hold out hope that

2012 CCNA

extending the cut to less economic timber stands can reduce this impact as well. But with the current cut far above historical levels to maximize beetle-kill harvest, some industry contraction seems inevitable. All this depends on adequate forest inventory and investment in replanting, fertilizing and provision of additional roads and power lines that would allow access to timber and potential bioenergy development. And that is where the political fight lies ahead. The timber supply committee delivered a unanimous report, despite the harsh divisions between the B.C. Liberal and NDP members who serve on it. NDP forest critic Norm Macdonald, vice chair of the committee, agreed it did good work during the seven months it has toured affected areas of the B.C. Interior. But he said the roots of the problem go back a decade, to when the B.C. Liberals started reducing support for forest health just as the beetle epidemic was spreading. Ten years ago the government removed the obligation for the province to reforest

TRI-CITY NEWS [CCAB AUDITED CIRCULATION 53,469 (MARCH 2009)] 1405 Broadway St., Port Coquitlam, B.C. V3C 6L6 telephone: 604-525-6397 • fax: 604-944-0703

areas affected by disease and fire. This was not only at the peak of the epidemic, it was one year before devastating wildfires raced through the Interior in the summer of 2003. “In 2002, the government removed its obligation to replant those areas, and cut the budget by 90 per cent,” Macdonald told me. “The three-year budget that’s in front of us is keeping on the downward slide, and it’s not what people in communities are saying is the answer. So that has to change.” The opposition, the auditor general and various forest experts have been blasting the government for the degraded state of the timber inventory, at a time when environmental changes have been sweeping. Steve Thomson, minister of the newly amalgamated forests, lands and natural resource operations ministry, points to the urgent efforts to upgrade the government’s detailed picture of the state of the forests, so it can consider new cutting, planting and fertilizing efforts. But there’s no denying that he came to the job in a crisis that will take more spending in the future, and he

will have a hard time finding it as Finance Minister Kevin Falcon looks to balance the books for the 2013 election. If nothing else, the pine beetle epidemic has forced the B.C. government to consider some of the intensive forest management that we hear about in Scandinavia, one of those places that supplies B.C. with wood furniture. And it has prompted renewed interest in offering new forest tenures to aboriginal communities with unresolved resource claims. Under current law, the government can only directly award new forest tenures to aboriginal communities. So part of the committee’s proposed solution is to “expedite negotiations” with the Burns Lake First Nations to give them a chance to harvest some of the marginally economic forest areas that remain. *** Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews. com.

TRI-CITYY LETTERS Stay tuned for ERH master concept plan The Editor, The news from the latest update meeting on the master concept plan being developed for Eagle Ridge Hospital through the partnership of Fraser Health Authority and the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation is, to say the least, good — perhaps even great. For example, steps are to begin as early as this fall to achieve — within existing operating budgets and with little new capital investment — some of the desired expansion of patient care at ERH and community health services within the Tri-Cities. Additionally, the planning

process indicates that, in as few as five years, ERH’s emergency room services can become what the foundation and others have been seeking to achieve. And get this: Meeting the plan’s priorities in the first five years of the 20-year master concept is expected to need a capital investment of $15 million to $20 million. Compare that with the $500 million recently announced as the requirement to make Royal Columbian Hospital what it wants to be. Look for more ERH plan details this fall. Jim Peacock, Port Moody

For years, Crease Clinic was a dumping place for families, and many people never left the grounds. Then it closed and the government rents it to the movie industry because money talks. Riverview has had no updates and moving the patients from surroundings they have spent more than half their life is not good.

Fact is, these buildings can be saved and, if the government updated the buildings, there would be lots of room for the patients and facilities for the homeless not to mention good jobs for people such as doctors and nurses. Instead, everybody thinks of the mighty dollar and developers are waiting in the wings. The government is waiting to pull a fast one and no one cares because Riverview area is not in a rich area. Darcy Walters, Port Coquitlam

No sense in pot laws The Editor, Regarding your Aug. 1 editorial, not only should medical marijuana be made available to patients in need, but adult recreational use should be regulated. Drug policies modeled after alcohol prohibition have given rise to a youth-oriented black market. Illegal drug dealers don’t ID for age, but they do recruit minors immune to adult sentences. Throwing more money at the problem is no solution. Attempts to limit the supply of illegal drugs while demand remains constant only increase the profitability of drug trafficking. For addictive drugs like heroin, a spike in street prices leads desperate addicts to increase criminal activity to feed desperate habits. The drug war doesn’t fight crime, it fuels crime. Taxing and regulating marijuana, the most popular illicit drug, is a cost-effective alternative to never-ending drug war. As long as marijuana distribution is controlled by organized crime, consumers will continue to come into contact with hard drugs like methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin. This “gateway” is a direct result of marijuana prohibition. Robert Sharpe, Common Sense for Drug Policy Washington, DC

Investigators seek answers continued from front page

Coquitlam’s fire chief Delmonico said firefighters “knocked down very quickly.” “It looked pretty spectacular when crews arrived,” he added. “Building materials tend to do that — a lot of the old roofing is petroleum based and it creates a large volume of black smoke.” Crews had been working on the building’s roof for about a week and were nearly finished the new torch-on roof. Delmonico said the roof membrane and HVAC system were damaged and there was minor water damage to the interior of the Dulux store, and possibly to the next-door spa, Shahnaz’s Beauty Garden. Dulux was expected to be open again for business on Tuesday but Delmonico said they were waiting for managers from the spa to arrive before determining whether that business could open its doors. Investigators were also expected to return on Tuesday (after The News’ print deadline) to determine the cause of the fire and interview building personnel as well as the roofers. Nobody was in either building at the time of the fire. “Crews did an entry and search and luckily they were unable to find anybody inside which is good, because there was smoke in both businesses,” Delmonico said.

Old roofing materials removed during a roofing job may have been the cause of the thick black smoke that rose from a paint store fire on Barnet Highway Monday. Fire fighters battled the blaze and quickly doused it, according to fire chief Tony Delmonico. STEVE SMITH/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Help sought in Coq. hit and run Coquitlam Mounties are asking for the public’s help on a possible hit-and-run case. The man who called the detachment on Aug. 17 said he believed he may have been hit by a vehicle on Aug. 10, said Cpl. Jamie Chung. He could only remember someone helping him into a cab near North Road and Smith Avenue, and later waking up in his Maillardville home with injuries similar to being struck by a vehicle. When he went to the hospital for a checkup several days later, it was discovered he had suffered a concussion, broken ribs and numerous bruises and road rash. “This is an unusual complaint and we would like public assistance to solve it,” Chung said. “If you saw anything similar to a hit and run around Aug. 10, we would like to hear from you.” Anyone with information is asked to call police at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2012-22739.

RIVERVIEW STORIES

The place they went to visit ‘She was a housewife, like every other mother on the street,’ says one of Anne Smith’s three daughters. The Vancouver family’s history is intertwined with that of Riverview

Riverview Hospital is a daunting place. The buildings are gothic. The bars on the windows reflect an era of mental health care when locked doors were supposed to protect patients. Visitors to Riverview Hospital now can only wonder what went on there because the buildings are closed and the last patients were transferred out to other facilities just this summer. But one family says Riverview was very much a part of their lives. With the hospital closing, they agreed to talk to The Tri-City News to honour their mom and dad, who spent so much time there.

By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

C

ecil Smith was as genial a man as you could find. At Riverview Hospital, where ‘Smitty’ was a regular visitor, he was popular among patients, who trailed him as if he were the Pied Piper and the nurses enjoyed his pleasant smile. They would wish him well as he walked out of the hospital, with his wife in tow and a bag of laundry in his arms. Smitty was an electrician, and his wife, Anne a pretty woman with thick, brown hair, who was also a talented seamstress and knitter. When they married in 1939, they had no idea what life had in store for them. For three years, they were happy. But in 1942, when Anne gave birth to their first daughter, Carolynn, the clouds descended on the young wife and mother. For a while, it seemed they would never lift.

PATIO TALK

THIS SERIES

• Over the next few months, as Riverview Hospital closes and the property approaches its 100th anniversary in 2013, The TriCity News will publish a series of articles by reporters Sarah Payne and Diane Strandberg about the people who worked, lived and had family there.

The Smith sisters are an attractive group of women whose distinct characters shine after only a few minutes of conversation. There’s Carolynn, the oldest and possibly the most practical one; Elaine, the middle child, emotional and thoughtful; and Diane, whose vivaciousness hides a steely strength and whose nicely decorated Coquitlam home suggests an artistic inclination. They’re meeting in Diane’s backyard to chat and compare memories of their mother’s mental illness and how they coped. They are full of stories, not all of them happy ones, but they say their parents’ strong family values — hard work, discipline and mutual support — helped them get through those tumultuous years. Their mother, Anne, battled bipolar disorder, with periods of mania, alternating with depression, but she was also a good mother, entirely devoted, and when she couldn’t get out of bed, would braid her daughters’ hair at her bedside. Their dad, Smitty, adored Anne and during the early years of the girls’ childhood in Collingwood in Vancouver, you wouldn’t have known there was mental illness in the family. “She was a housewife,” Diane recalls, “like every other mother on the street.”

RIVERVIEW MEMORIES

Carolynn was about four years old when she first visited her mother at Riverview and was surprised to see all the locks. “‘Why is everything locked?’ I wondered, that was the perception of a four year old,’” she says. First at Crease Clinic and later at East Lawn, Anne became a regular patient at Riverview and, as electric shock treatments destroyed her short-term memory and drugs diminished what had been a sharp mind, the place became as much her home as the house in Collingwood.

ABOVE: SUBMITTED PHOTO; BELOW: DIANE STRANDBERG/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Above, the Smith family, circa 1986: Cecil (known as ‘Smitty), wife Anne and their daughters, Carolynn, Elaine and Diane. Right, the sisters now — from left, Diane, Elaine and Carolynn — with a rocking chair their mother, Anne, a patient at Riverview, made for her grandchildren in an occupational therapy class. The girls remember their mom as a strong character who was careful about her appearance and kept regular appointments with her hairdresser. But it was Smitty who was the rock along with the assorted friends and family members who gave the girls’ life a semblance of order. Beginning in 1942, when Anne had her first breakdown, Smitty became her primary caregiver and her pillar of strength. Money was tight but despite not having a car, Smitty managed to make regular trips to the Coquitlam hospital. To this day, the girls don’t know how he managed. “It’s a mystery,” Carolynn says. After a six-month stay at Riverview, Anne returned home and had two more daughters over six years, then kept it together for another 15 years until a hormonal imbalance following a hysterectomy sent her spiralling downward.

It’s cat week at SPCA The love and companionship of a cat is priceless, but from Thursday, Aug. 23 to Saturday, Aug. 25, adopters can choose an adult cat from any BC SPCA location around the province — and name their own adoption fee. During the “Pick your Purrfect Price” promotion, cat lovers can set the fee and take home a beautiful new best friend. “The BC SPCA takes in more than 17,000 homeless cats and kittens each year and summer is the peak season where our shelters are filled to capacity,” says Lorie Chor tyk, general manager of community relations for the BC SPCA. “Summer is especially hard on adult cats because with so many kittens in the shelters people sometimes overlook the wonderful adult cats who have so much to offer.” Chor tyk says people who adopt cats from the SPCA are getting exceptional value, even without a special promotion. “Our average cost to care for a cat during its stay is $784, which includes vaccinations, spaying or neutering, an identification tattoo, preventative treatment for internal and external parasites, any medical care or rehabilitation required, daily welfare monitoring, sheltering and feeding.” She notes that a homeless cat can stay in SPCA care for anywhere from a few days to more than a year before finding a loving family. “Our goal is to find loving homes for as many adult cats as possible during the event. All of the usual adoption criteria will still apply. For more details on the Pick your Pur r-fect Price event, visit your local SPCA shelter or visit spca.bc.ca to view all adoptable animals and infor mation on SPCA locations across B.C.

Snow White was a rare gem & few films today can match A GOOD READ Martin Boughner When choosing a movie, consider animated classics

S

now White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) was the first full-length animated movie, and to my mind still one of the best. Composed of cells painted by hand, the film achieves a richness of animated effect that has not until recently been equalled (I especially enjoy watching the shadows move with the characters). The visual beauty of the rhythmic movement of the forest animals adds to the movie. As important is the richness of characterization — the dwarfs are all fully individual personalities. The great soundtrack doesn’t hurt either. Snow White contained 1,500,000 individual penand-ink drawing and paintings, done by dozens of graphical artists and animators “The golden age of animation” was

reprised by Robert Zemekis’ and Richard Williams’ Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), a tour de force of combined animation and live action, the animation once again being done by hand. Characterization is equally important to the success of the movie, which deals with skulduggery and murder in a 1940s Los Angeles abutted by a completely animated “Toontown”. What has revived animation, however, is the maturation of Computer Generated Imagery, or CGI. Based on massive computing power, CGI had been criticized on the basis of being “too” real, with a consequent loss of some of the subtle charm of Snow White. Leaders of the CHI revolution have been Pixar (1995’s Toy Story was the first fully computer generated film), and DreamWorks. Pixar’s most successful films (at least for adults) are Ratatouille (2007) and Wall-E (2008). Ratatouille follows the adventures of a rat born with a sensitivity of taste and smell that makes him a natural

cook (his mentor, Gusteau, has written a book called “Anyone Can Cook”). Remy is, visually, rat-like, as are his family. Part of the brilliance of the movie is that he is nonetheless a loveable character. Wall-E (2008) has as unlikely a hero, a trash-compacting robot living 700 years in the future on a deserted and ecologically exhausted earth. Wall-E saves mementoes of a happier Earth, wrapped in Christmas lights, and when a spaceship of Earth people arrives to examine the planet, finds, improbably enough, true love. DreamWorks’ successes include Shrek (2001) and Antz (1998). Shrek concerns an ogre who values his privacy because he’s sick of being told how ugly he is. With a hip-talking donkey companion, he is dragooned into saving an enchanted princess and in the process recovers his soul. Antz concerns an ant whose needs go beyond those of the colony. He (voiced logically enough by Woody Allen) asks

his psychiatrist, “What about my needs?” A word should be said about recent successes in stop-action animation, most famously represented in the original King Kong (1933). Tim Burton has two deliciously creepy stop-actions, The Corpse Bride (2005), and The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993). The first concerns a young man, slated to wed an heiress, who finds himself married to a dead (and partially decomposed) woman instead, and the second with the effort by Jack, the Pumpkin King of Halloween, to expand his franchise to Christmas as well. Both have wonderful scores by Danny Elfman, and present characters who are creepy, funny, and loveable at the same time. All these movies are available at the Port Moody Public Library. A Good Read is a column by Tri-City librarians that is published every Wednesday. Martin Boughner works at Port Moody Public Library.

Life at Riverview a mixed blessing for mom & girls continued from page 13

Riverview Hospital has achieved iconic status among those who wish to see it preserved. It was considered a leading-edge hospital where psychiatric nurses learned skills and new therapies were developed. Smitty visited three or four times each week, even though he still had to get Diane through high school and fulfill his work obligations. When he retired, looking after Anne at Riverview became a major focus of his life. He would drive her to visit her grandkids and make sure she attended special occasions. For the Smith sisters, Riverview was the place they went to visit their mom and the place they took their kids to see their grandma. It was a duty but not always a chore.

Register births online B r i t i s h Columbia parents are now able to register the birth of their newborn child online, with the launch of a new birth registration system. Registration creates a permanent legal record of a birth and every B.C.-born baby’s birth must be registered with the Vital Statistics Agency. No fee is charged for registrations received within 30 days of a child’s birth. Parents can already go online to apply for their child’s birth certificate. As part of the new online birth registration system, they can also apply online for Canada Child Benefits, the baby’s Social Insurance Number and Medical Services Plan coverage. Registration requires the presence of the parent(s) who will be recorded on the child’s birth registration. For more information on the new registration process or to register the birth of a newborn, please visit www. vs.gov.bc.ca

The sisters remember having tea with their mom at Penn Hall and attending dances on Friday nights. “My mother would say, if someone asks you to dance, be polite and dance with them,” said Diane. Elaine remembers the male patients asking her how long she’d been at Riverview. “I would say, ‘I’m a visitor’ and they would say, ‘I’m a visitor, too.’” They advocated for her well-being, communicated with doctors and made sure she was well-looked after. It was not always easy but the experience has rubbed them as smooth as stones in a rushing stream. “She had mental illness and it affected everyone in the family,” Diane now says. There is no way to capture all the moments in a life time, big

or small, but one anecdote hints at how the Smith family managed all those years. Mom and dad are sitting at the kitchen table and the sisters are fussing over corsages and neckties. It’s their 50th wedding anniversary and 40 guests are about to arrive at Diane’s Coquitlam home. With a loving, lastminute gesture, Smitty applies adhesive to his wife’s dentures and sticks them in her mouth. “What would you do without me?” he says. “What would you do without me?” Anne retorts while adjusting her teeth.

POST MORTEM

The daughters tell a story: Smitty steers his car off of Lougheed Highway onto Holly Drive towards

Riverview hospital. Much has changed in the years since his Anne first became a patient in the early 1940s. There are fewer patients and fewer staff. It’s not quite a ghost town, but almost. Although he has no errand to keep since his wife passed away, he’s there to visit patients and has brought cigarettes as a gift. His daughters don’t understand why he returns now that his burden has been lifted. Smitty has only this to say: “I don’t know why,” he says, giving them a smile. “My car just automatically goes out there.” Cecil ‘Smitty’ Smith passed away in 2002, roughly a decade after Anne died in a Burnaby nursing home. The extended family remembers them fondly. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Plan now for a successful homework routine

After a long hot summer it can be tough to get kids back into a routine, and focused on homework. But homework is a key part of your child’s education, and it’s important that they not only complete it, but also understand what they’ve learned. Studies show that children’s

achievements in school improve with increased parent involvement in education. So get involved in your kids’ schoolwork — you might even learn something new too! ABC Life Literacy Canada offers 10 tips on how to make homework part of your daily routine: 1. Develop a daily routine by set-

ting aside a specific time each day/ evening for homework. 2. Provide a quiet, well-lit place with basic school supplies. 3. Understand your child’s style of learning — this will help you develop a personalized homework plan for your child. 4. It’s not uncommon for kids to

get overwhelmed with big assignments or projects. Help them break the project down into smaller steps. Work on pieces throughout the week and do the hard parts on the weekend. 5. Talk with your child’s teacher and be aware of their method of

teaching. Help your child by using familiar terms and examples. 6. Don’t reserve learning to homework hour. Make learning a part of daily life.

SIGN ME UP 2012! Non-profits can apply for student expertise A community partnership This fall, two local non-profit agencies stand to benefit from a unique partnership between Envision Financial and Douglas College. It all started with an educational project piloted last year that provided academic research and problem solving to address the challenges facing local non-profit agencies. The program exposes students to the growing social sector and allows them to have hands-on learning experiences that will ultimately benefit the community. The goal of the program is to build vibrant communities and develop strong corporate citizens. Following the success of the pilot project, Douglas College and Envision Financial are now accepting project proposals from local non-profit and charitable agencies that have a current operational

or program need that could be addressed through academic research and problem solving by third and fourth year Douglas College students. “Many non-profit agencies are stretched thin and don’t have the time or expertise to research and develop new programs or marketing campaigns,� says Susan Byrom, manager of corporate citizenship at Envision Financial. “This program fills that need while providing enriching learning opportunities for the students. At Envision, we want to make a meaningful difference in our local communities and this program allows us to do just that.� In April 2012, ten Douglas College students partnered with the Surrey Food Bank and Coquitlam Foundation. The marketing students developed strategies and visual imagery to increase awareness and engagement of youth through

volunteering for the Surrey Food Bank. Marketing and computer sciences students worked to increase the awareness of the Coquitlam Foundation in Coquitlam, including the creation of an events planning guide, a plan for the organization’s 20th anniversary gala, an overall marketing plan and strategy and an overhaul of the foundation’s website. “This unique project provides real business experience for students that add to their classroom learning, while the not-for-profits gain valuable business tools and strategies,� says Hazel Postma, associate vice-president external relations. Applicants for the 2012/2013 Envision Financial and Douglas College community building program, should forward their expression of interest to Susan Byrom, manager, Corporate Citizenship at Envision Financial at sbyrom@ envisionfinancial.ca.

DragonDiva dials in NBC radio play New Westminster theatre company puts a fresh take on a 1939 radio opera starring a Terry Fox graduate By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

F

or DragonDiva Operatic Theatre’s fifth anniversary production o f The Old Maid and the Thief — the first radio opera commissioned by NBC in 1939 — the cast and crew were each given a part to transcribe. Riley McMitchell, a graduate of Port Coquitlam’s Terry Fox secondary who portrays the character of Bob, was asked to dictate part of the radio announcer’s text. “And it was lots of fun,” said McMitchell, a Grade 3 and 4 teacher at Coquitlam’s Lord Baden-Powell elementary. “You really got a feeling for radio from that era.” But for DragonDiva’s show, artistic director Jeanine Fynn put a fresh spin on the performance: Not only will the audience hear the 73-year-old act penned by Italian-American composer Gian Carlo Menotti but it will also see a behind-the-scenes reenactment. That means McMitchell and the other eight cast members are on stage for the full two-hour broadcast. McMitchell, a UBC opera grad and DragonDiva alumnus (HMS Pinafore, Iolanthe), was handpicked to play the pivotal role of Bob. A wanderer, Bob lands in town and woos Miss Todd (played by Lisa-Dawn Kilthau), a wealthy upstanding lady in the community who heads up charities and the Prohibition committee. Desperate to keep her new lover, Miss Todd “ends up doing all of these immoral things for him like breaking into a liquor store and stealing money from her friends,” McMitchell said. Parallel to the story is an announcement about a prison escapee who coincidentally fits Bob’s physical description. “Everybody wonders if Bob is this thief or not. It’s never actually spelled out for you in the opera so you have to make your own decision,” he said. McMitchell said the production is not just geared to opera lovers: Theatre-goers enchanted with the music from the 1940s will also cherish the stage play as the Three Graces (à la Andrews Sisters) sing commercial jingles from that time period. “The opera has never been done in the way we’re presenting it,” McMitchell said, “and that’s kind of what DragonDiva is known for. They like to do a bit

Art centres cross boundaries with waterways By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Three major art centres in the Tri-Cities have joined forces to commission work on a common theme. The first annual Arts in the Tri-Cities: Crossing Boundaries exhibit launches tomor row (Thursday) with the Port Moody Arts Centre (PMAC) displaying pieces by Robi Smith in her new collection for the A View from the Water’s Edgee series. Her craft can be seen in the facility’s Cabinet of Curiosity until Sept. 30. Next month, also following the waterways concept, Port Coquitlam’s Leigh Square Community Arts Village will present a show by artists Colin James Craig, Skai Fowler, Heidi Lambert, Ranjan Sen and Gerry

Thompson; the opening reception will be held Sept. 29 and the show runs until Oct. 30. And the following day, Sept. 30, Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre (ECC) will have an installation up in its main lobby by Sylvie Roussel-Janssens, titled How Deep Is Your Lake?? Her sculptural work — a series of suspended wire and fabric pieces — can be seen until Nov. 3. The three inaugural exhibits, which coincide with Culture Days, Sept. 28 to 30, a national arts and culture celebration, are a result of last year’s ArtsConnect summit when artists, musicians and cultural leaders converged at the Vancouver Golf Club in Coquitlam to find ways to promote the local arts scene. Afterwards, PMAC’s Susan Jessop met with Yvonne Chui,

PoCo’s art and culture co-ordinator, and ECC visual arts manager Astrid Heyerdahl to brainstorm. “We wanted to connect the three organizations somehow,” Jessop said, adding, “It helps all of us when we work more closely together.... We don’t see it as competiting for the same audience.” The waterways theme was a perfect fit to link for the three cities and symbolizes the art centres’ new partnership, Jessop said. “Evergreen Cultural Centre is thrilled to reach across municipal boundaries and to work with such fantastic arts organizations in Port Moody and Port Coquitlam,” Heyerdahl said. “Culture Days is a national celebration of arts and culture and what better way to celebrate than to allow for the arts to break barriers of all kinds and to join communities together.”

Meanwhile, Mother Earth is also featured predominately in new exhibits that open this week in Port Moody and Port Coquitlam. Besides the Smith show, PMAC hosts an opening reception tomorrow (Thursday) at 6 p.m. for displays from Rosie James (Crowd Cloud: Drawings in Space); Shari Pratt (portraits collected via Facebook); and Amang Mardokhy ((Returning to Nature). As well, on Saturday at 2 p.m., Leigh Square Community Arts Village in Port Coquitlam will have an opening reception at 2 p.m. for its Coming Up For Air, Rocks, Trees and H20 display. The mixed media show is by Pender Harbour artists Pat Jobb, June Malaka, Fran Sevier and Wendy Simmonds. jwarren@tricitynews.com

Last weekend, The Old Maid and the Thieff opened the Gabriola Theatre Festival and this week, it’s on for two performances at the Bernie Legge Theatre in New Westminster as well as this Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. at Evergreen Cultural Centre, as part of the Coquitlam facility’s first annual Opera on the Lake series. “People in the Tri-Cities don’t see opera come out so often to the community,” said McMitchell, a former director of the Coastal Sound Music Academy boys’ choir. “This is something that you don’t have to drive out to Vancouver for. And DragonDiva has done this really well. It’s not to be missed.” Also performing are Christina Lewall as Miss Pinkerton; Karen Santos as Laeticia; Megan Bryden, Kayla Matzen and Tracy Weins as the Three Graces; Henry Chen as the sound man; and

SUMMER

INTHECITY

By Janis Warren The miniature multimedia piece Yuliya Yaremenko clutches is a symbol for her life so far. Titled d My Journey as an Artist, the work was a school project assigned by her art teacher, Judi Gardnner, at Port Moody secondary. The black spiral leads upwards to a blue flower with masks, representing her three â&#x20AC;&#x153;facesâ&#x20AC;?: The first, a copper mask, has a hard exterior and tends to be the one she exposes to the public; the second, a sculpty mask, is somewhat softer and is the side she mainly shows to her friends; while the third mask is hidden inside the flower and is her sensitive layer, made out of threads. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about growth and discovering identity â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;very clichĂŠ teenager stuff, I know,â&#x20AC;? the plain-spoken 18-year-old Port Coquitlam resident said with a wave of her hand. But, a few years ago, Yaremenko admits she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so sure about her talent. There was sadness and angst with her art, â&#x20AC;&#x153;which is very, very personal to me. I was having doubts that I could do it. It was a very hard time because all I wanted to be when I was growing up was an artist.â&#x20AC;? Yaremenkoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother taught her daughter how to draw in their native Ukraine. The family moved to the Tri-CIties when Yaremenko was eight and, three years later, she was in painting classes at the Wiseman Academy of Art on Austin Avenue, for seven years. At PMSS, where she was an international baccalaureate (IB) student, Yaremenkoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also excelled with other media like sculpting under Gardnnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She really pushed us to think outside the box,â&#x20AC;? Yaremenko said. Still, she remembered wrestling with the concept of making a living from art after grad. Then, in Grade 10, while watching a fashion television show, Yaremenko had an â&#x20AC;&#x153;ahaâ&#x20AC;? moment. She saw catwalks filled with garments by such makers as Alexander McQueen and Givenchy â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is so expressive and creative. I can do this.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? And so Yaremenko started to tailor her dreams around fashion design. In her Grade 12 year, she left the IB program to focus on her artwork. Her submissions to Emerging Talent XV â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a juried art show at the Evergreen Cultural Centre that features more than 50 works from Grade 12 students in School District 43 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; won her rave reviews and scholarships.

Jr. A’s make Minto semis in Ontario By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A

fter fading in the third period to the Ontariochampion Orangeville Northmen to open Minto Cup play Saturday, the Coquitlam Jr. Adanacs came out blazing and mauled the Calgary Mountaineers on Sunday. The Jr. A’s got out-scored 5-1 in the final frame and dropped a tournament-opening 9-5 decision to Orangeville at the four-team Canadian national Junior A box lacrosse championships in Whitby, Ont. The next day, Coquitlam stormed to a 7-0 firstperiod lead and sailed to a 10-goal triumph over the Alberta champs from Calgary. The A’s were set to battle the defending Mintochampion hosts, the equally 1-1 Whitby Warriors, on Tuesday (after The Tri-City News’ deadline) in a mean-little game, while 2-0 Orangeville was slated to play the Mountaineers, who enter the game already having been eliminated from the playoff round. Also Sunday, the Northmen edged Whitby 8-7 in overtime to secure first place in the round-robin an automatic berth in the best-of-three final. Coquitlam and Whitby will meet again today [Wednesday] in a do-or-die semifinal. “They key for [Tuesday’s game] is to come out of the game healthy,” Jr. A’s head coach Neil Dinsdale told The Newss on the phone from Whitby. “It really means nothing other than the winning team gets the choice of benches, which doesn’t matter to us. It’ll be a pretty vanilla-type game for both teams.” Dinsdale said he wasn’t impressed with the travel schedule the Jr. A’s were dealt entering the tournament. The squad arrived in Whitby at 10:30 p.m. on Friday, he said, and was pencilled in for an 8 a.m. practice Saturday followed by the Orangeville game later that night. Dinsdale said the Jr. A’s had little choice but to nix the early-morning practice and rest up for the tilt with the Northmen. “Not to make excuses, but the chips were definitely stacked against us,” he said. “Orangeville played well and we ran out of gas in the third, which can happen when you get that kind of travel schedule. Oh well, it is what it is and we’ll deal with it.” The Jr. A’s and Northmen were knotted 4-4 entering the third before Orangeville took control down the stretch. Coquitlam game MVP Ben McIntosh rifled in three goals, with Robert Church and Tyler Garrison also tallying in a losing effort. Against Calgary, McIntosh pumped in three goals and added five assists to rally Coquitlam. Wesley Berg also scored three times for the Jr. A’s, who got two goals and a pair of assists from game MVP Church. Matthew Dinsdale collected a goal and three helpers for the winners, with Coquitlam’s other marksmen being Connor Buchanan, Vincent Ricci and Garrison. The best-of-three final is set for Friday and Saturday and, if necessary, Sunday.

SR. A’S DROP WLA FINAL OPENER

Coquitlam Adanacs did a terrific job preventing goals Sunday. Scoring them, however, proved a problem. The A’s managed only one marker in each period during a 7-3 defeat to the host Langley Thunder in the opening game of the Western Lacrosse Association best-of-seven final series. Game 2 went Tuesday [after The Tri-City News’ deadline] at Poirier Sports Complex, 7:45 p.m. The teams were knotted 1-1 after the first period and the Thunder held a 4-2 lead after the second. Jason Jones, Steve McKinlay and Daryl Veltman scored for the A’s, who were outshot handily 59-37 and got an outstanding 52-save showing from league MVP goalie Nick Rose. Former Coquitlam Jr. Adanacs’ player Athan Iannucci and ex-PoCo Saint Rob Van Beek were among the Langley goal-getters.

Kicking cancer in dad’s memory Gary Ahuja BLACK PRESS

Josh Collins is trying to give cancer the boot. More specifically, the former football player is hoping to kick 100,000 yards in field goals — 2,858 field goals of 35 yards apiece — in 48 hours in his quest to raise $100,000. The money would be used to help families take care of their loved one who are battling cancer. “I know first hand just how hard it is,” said Collins.

TC three miss out in final bid for golf Open

Three Tri-City residents were part of the 27 players who hit Morgan Creek Golf Course in South Surrey during Monday’s final qualifying event in hopes of securing one of the four final spots into the 2012 CN Canadian Women’s Open. Unfortunately, none in the trio advanced despite their gallant efforts. The Open’s four rounds of competition run Thursay through Sunday at Coquitlam’s Vancouver Golf Club. Canadian amateur A. Ram Choi of Surrey, a sophomore at Portland State University and a former B.C. Junior girls championship winner, shot two-under-par 70 to earn one of the final four spots into the field. Two other players –– amateur Erynne Lee of Silverdale, Wash., and Maiya Tanaka of San Diego, Calif. –– also earned spots into the 156-player field after carding rounds of twounder-par 70. Lee, a sophomore at UCLA, was recently named to the 2012 USA World Amateur Team after reaching the quarterfinals at the 2012 U.S. Women’s Amateur. Ta n a k a , wh o c o m petes primarily on the Symetra Tour, is also a product of UCLA. Emily Talley of Napa, Calif., a product of the University of Colorado, was awarded the final qualifier spot after besting Brit Hayes of Polson, Mont., and Katy Harris of Humble, Tex., in a playoff after the trio shot one-under par 71 through 18 holes. Among those failing to qualify were amateur’s Valentina Trillo or Port Moody and Coquitlam’s Anica Yoo. Trillo finished tied for 10th with a three-overpar 75, while Yoo was deadlocked for 17th with a five-over-par 77. Also, Port Moody’s Ashlee Claydon placed 24th with a 15-over-par 87 score. With the addition of Choi to the field, a total of 15 Canadians will now compete for Canada’s N a t i o n a l Wo m e n ’ s Open Championship. Coquitlam’s Jisoo Keel, 17, has already qualified. A pair of previously announced Canadians have withdrawn from the event, including Ste phanie Sherlock (wrist injury) and Langley’s Sue Kim, who will instead compete in this week’s Symetra Tour event.

“Whenever I am kicking, it is that zone where no one can touch me,” Collins said. “I feel rested, relaxed and just in my own little world and I know that my dad is sitting there on my shoulder. “I think he gave me the idea to help people who are in need.” For the past

eight months, Collins has spent his evenings on the football/rugby field at Willoughby C o m m u n i t y P a rk , practising for the big event. It will take place on Friday at 7 p.m. and continue until Aug. 26 at 7 p.m. at Richmond’s Sportstown BC (4991 No. 5 Rd.).
