When searchers told Tara Trompetter they’d found her son’s body in the depths of Anderson Lake, she knew she had to see him. She had to know how – how did Ben die cliff-jumping, doing something he’d done so many times? And, did he die painfully? Words from the divers who found the 27-year-old Sunday brought some comfort. “They said, ‘your son was the most peaceful we’ve ever pulled up,’” Tara said. “I got to go and hold him and touch him and kiss his face. He had a smile.” The expression, say friends and family who gathered at Tara’s South Surrey home Wednesday, was a familiar one to all who knew the Peninsula man. It appeared often, and touched many who had the good fortune to meet him in many corners of the world. “His smile is like nothing (else) – it was beautiful,” Tara said. Ben died Friday, after jumping from a cliff northeast of Pemberton into the icy waters of Anderson Lake. He had been enjoying the lake with friends – planning to head to Whistler later to watch his cousin compete in the slope-style mountain-biking competition, Crankworx – when he decided to freeclimb the cliff face. The activity is one he had participated in many times before, and skillfully, friends say.  see page 10

Dr. Allison Patton, prospective local candidate for the BC Conservative party, is hopeful that internal turmoil in the Surrey-White Rock constituency association will soon be resolved. Patton – who had been president of the association since it was formed in early 2011 – resigned two weeks ago. On Wednesday, she said most of her board had also been in the process of resigning, Allison Patton but that they BC Conservatives had been asked by the party to rescind alreadysubmitted resignations and see if discussion could resolve rifts in the association. “We’re in discussions right now,” she said, adding that the association’s AGM is Sept. 22 at the Langley Events Centre. “The AGM will definitely help – a lot of matters will be dealt with or become a lot clearer after that point.”  see page 4

Second thrift-store fire in less than two months in White Rock

Arson not ruled out in blaze at Superfluity shop Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

A June 26 fire damaged Worldserve store.

The fire that forced the shutdown of the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary’s Superfluity thrift store may have been deliberately set. White Rock RCMP released a statement last week saying the Aug. 9 fire started in a pile of newspapers and magazines piled on a couch left in the back lane behind the shop at 15163 Prospect Ave. “Although, the fire may have been inadvertently set with the ember from a cigarette, the fact that it may have been deliberately set cannot be ruled out,” Const. Janelle

Shoihet said. The exact cause of the fire, which damaged the northeast corner of the Thrift Shop roof and building and forced its indefinite shutdown is undetermined, the statement said. The fire at Superfluity was the second blaze behind a White Rock thrift store in less than two months. On June 26, a fire that started in a couch behind the Worldserve Thrift store, at 1401 Johnston Rd., scorched the walls and melted a plastic sign in the drop-off dock but did not cause structural damage. The fire was reported around 1:30 a.m. Store manager Melody Jobse told Peace Arch

News this week that the store is planning to put a chain-link fence around the loading dock to keep after-hours drop-offs a safe distance from the store. She said it isn’t known if the fire was deliberately set, but it would help a lot if people stopped dumping furniture and other items when the store is closed. “We can’t recycle something that goes up in flames,” Jobse said, noting many use the drop-off area to dump garbage, to the point where store staff won’t sort through anything left after business hours. “It goes to the dump,” Jobse said. “It’s incredibly frustrating.”

For example, the Arthur Laing Bridge between the airport and Vancouver is owned by the federal government and operated by the Vancouver Airport Authority. That’s not to say such a co-ordinated approach shouldn’t be attempted. In the name of fairness and additional revenue, it is well worth a concerted effort. In the meantime, Surrey and other South Fraser residents will pay a disproportionate amount of tolls to the province and TransLink. If Surrey residents, as a whole, were better off than most other regional residents, that could perhaps be justified. If they received as good or better transit service as do others in the region, it might make sense. But Surrey residents do not have a much higher standard of living than most, nor do they have access to good transit service. In fact, transit service south of the Fraser is significantly worse than in other parts of the region. There is supposed to be a rapid bus service over the new bridge, but thus far there isn’t the funding. Lekstrom says it will go ahead. We’re all waiting to see whether it will.

news Plane-crash victim helped eight organ recipients posthumously

Family shares Lauren’s last gift Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

Less than a week after Lauren Sewell suffered fatal injuries in a plane crash near Kelowna, her mother had a dream. Last Sunday, Fran Sewell said she saw Lauren standing beside her while she slept, reassuring her mother that she and her boyfriend, Dallas Smith, didn’t suffer. “Mom, it was just a bump,” Lauren said. “And when all the lights came on, I was with Dallas. We’re OK.” It was, according to family and friends, very much in character for the South Surrey native, an athletic 24-year-old who is remembered

as a generous, caring person who possessed a calm confidence that was reassuring to be around. Her father, Greg Sewell, says Lauren had made some “pretty bold moves” to change her life in 2011, quitting a good job to go back to school and upgrade her education, even temporarily moving back in with her parents while she studied, before returning to Vancouver about five months ago. She planned a career in human resources, a good fit for someone known for both her organizational skills and personal warmth. “She radiated confidence and love,” her father said.

She recently become involved with Smith, and the two seemed very much in love, he said. The pair died after a four-seat Piper Twin Commanche crashed 30 kilometres west of Kelowna on Aug. 13, while flying back to Boundary Bay airport in Delta. Smith was pronounced dead at the scene; Sewell died in hospital. For her father, the first inkling that something was wrong came when Lauren was late for her mother’s birthday and didn’t call. Then he saw a television news report about a small plane crashing. He knew that Lauren was flying back with Dallas and two others, a

25-year-old woman and 35-year-old man who both had pilot’s licences. Lauren, who was known for her generosity, had purchased flying lessons for Dallas for his 30th birthday. It’s still not clear if the Monday flight was for training. When the Sewell family learned that Lauren had been on the plane but was still alive, they drove to Kelowna, where a neurosurgeon told them she had suffered “unsurvivable” brain injuries from the impact. At the suggestion of the surgeon and with the approval of her family, Lauren became an organ donor.  see page 4

Stolen truck recovered but jerseys remain missing

Rugby club tackles loss of uniforms Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A fledging Surrey-based rugby club that formed to preserve and celebrate the game’s amateur roots is reeling from a low blow after two dozen uniform kits disappeared with the club president’s truck earlier this month. The Guardians’ Marshall McDonald said Tuesday his Ford F350 was stolen from in front of his Morgan Creek home overnight Aug. 2. While he got the truck back – after happening across it a week later in a Langley parking lot – the find was bittersweet. Everything that had been inside, including the 24 kits used to dress the Guardians, was nowhere to be found. “It was brutal. All the team jerseys and our shorts and ties were in the back,” McDonald said, noting the theft was the third time his truck has been targeted. “It’s a step back.” The Guardians club was the brainchild of some longtime Bayside Rugby alums. It was established this past spring with an aim to

Orange and white jerseys have been stolen. keep the game fun – on and off the field – for up-and-coming players, while also providing top-notch competition. “It’s about camaraderie, character and a game that people have always played for reasons other than money,” Guardians’ director of rugby, Andy Blackburn, said in an April interview. McDonald said the club fields game requests from teams all over the world that are planning to pass through the area and want to play.

The team’s mix of players from different teams “usually gives a touring team a little better competition,” he said. Recently, the Guardians went up against visiting teams from New Zealand and England. The kits that were taken were the club’s only set, and McDonald said the loss is a big hit. The jerseys alone cost about $70 each. “We just got it going this year. Things were really rolling, people really loved the concept,” he said. “We’ve kind of got to start from scratch.” McDonald believes whoever took the truck likely didn’t realize what was in the bag that contained the “pretty loud” orange and white jerseys, and may have simply dumped them. Club members are exploring local flea markets in an effort to locate the kits. “Even a few of them back would be better than nothing,” McDonald said. Anyone with information is asked to contact McDonald at 778-245-8578, or through the club’s website, www.rugbyguardians.com

Railings along White Rock’s waterfront are getting a facelift. Work to paint the blue guardrails black got underway last month, and is expected to be complete by the end of August, city manager Dan Bottrill said Tuesday. Approximately 3.9 kilometres of railing are getting the fresh coat – along with some lamp standards and possibly some bollards. Cost of the work is estimated at between $60,000 and $70,000. Bottrill said the maintenance effort is “badly needed”, and was undertaken to ensure the waterfront continues to look its best. “Those railings really needed painting,” Bottrill said. “It’s not a big cost thing, but it’s something we need to make sure we’re on top of. “Promenade and the beach area is an amazing space for White Rock and we want to make sure we’re doing a good job at keeping it well-maintained.” Bottrill said the switch to black from blue “just made sense to me,” explaining that the darker colour matches that already used on railings along the Hump, and doesn’t distract from the picturesque waterfront itself. Council was not involved in the decision, and only one person has expressed concern with the colour change, Bottrill said. (See letter to the editor, page 7) “I appreciate the fact that people are very passionate about their community,” he said. “At the end of the day, the city is going to do what we think to make the city look as good as it can be.”

AUGUST SPECIALS

Friend tells of life-saving transplant  from page 3 At least eight people benefitted, her father said. One person received both her lungs, another her heart. Two others regained their vision. On the day the donations were made, Aug. 15, the Sewell family visited the crash site. There, Transportation Safety Board investigators told them the aircraft landing gear had not been lowered, a clue that the plane wasn’t trying to make a landing when the crash took place. The day of the crash was very hot and there was a lot of smoke in the air, Greg Sewell said. The family left some flowers

and said some prayers. Greg Sewell described it as a “sombre and serene” scene. Under the rules governing transplants in B.C., the family of a donor has to wait a year before any contact with the recipients is possible. But Greg Sewell has already heard, indirectly, from one. A friend had told him about talking to a man whose daughter has just received a life-saving transplant and is convinced that the donation came from Lauren. The Sewell family has not heard directly from the man, yet. As well as her parents, Lauren Patricia Sewell is survived by

older sisters Justine Billon and Robyn Billon. A celebration of her life is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 25 at the Valley View funeral home at 2 p.m. at 14660 72 Ave. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that donations be made to the Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health foundation, where a fund has been set up in Lauren’s name. Services for Dallas Smith are scheduled for Friday, Aug. 24 at Victory Memorial Park funeral centre at 1 p.m. at 14831 28 Ave. A trust fund has been set up for Smith’s mother at Coast Capital Savings branches.

Appointments ‘posed challenges’  from page 1 At the heart of her own decision to resign, Patton said, was her determination that the party be inclusive of all segments of society. “I want it to be a party of young people, of women, of different cultures,” she said. “I want it to be an integrated party – and that takes some time.” While Patton was not specific about what prompted local board

members to resign, she said “there were some appointments made in the party that posed some challenges for some of us, based on our future plans – when people have a history of views that we don’t agree with.” Patton said she remains confident the constituency association can get past the current crisis – and that she’d still like to repre-

Early access for Port Mann Jeff Nagel Black Press

Motorists may be driving over part of North Surrey’s new Port Mann Bridge as early as September. Tolls aren’t planned until the bridge formally opens with eight out of 10 lanes operational in December, but Port Mann/Highway 1 Project spokesman Max Logan said some traffic will begin using at least a couple of lanes this fall. Shifting some traffic onto the new bridge will help with construction staging as crews still have extensive work for the months ahead, notably in completing new overpasses at the Cape Horn interchange on the Coquitlam side. “It could be as early as September,” he said. “It’s likely to be the eastbound lanes that are moved first. The details of that and the timing is still being worked out with the contractor.”

Construction on the new Port Mann Bridge continues. Logan likens the early lane openings to the traffic pattern changes that have seen exits and on-ramps shift to accommodate work along Highway 1’s 37-kilometre construction corridor. “By shifting some lanes over to the bridge not only does that create some work space for us it also allows us to transition traffic gradually over to the new bridge.” He said the transportation ministry wants to avoid anything like California’s multi-day freeway construction closures that have

Logan said drivers won’t experience the full travel time savings until the initial eight lanes of the new bridge are open and electronic tolling begins. It will take another year before all 10 lanes are in service, because the old bridge must be taken down.

editorial

Mourning the tragic losses of the Peninsula all it coincidence or a statistical blip. Call it what you will. When a series of tragedies strike close to home, the effect can be a shock wave – particularly in such a close-knit community as the Semiahmoo Peninsula. Over the last week and a half, five people perished in three different incidents across B.C. Their loss was keenly felt here, because each either grew up and attended school on the Peninsula or had very close ties to this area. For many who learned the sad news of their passing, these were friends, or friends of friends. People they’d worked with, seen around. People they’d nodded to, or with whom they’d shared a laugh or a smile. They were all of the same generation – in the mid 20s to the early 30s. In each case, for those who are left behind, the feeling of waste is inescapable. These were not people, after all, who had reached the twilights of long lives, or even those who, while facing a grim diagnosis, had time to come to terms with the fact that their days were numbered. These were people who seemed to have the greater part of their lives, their goals and accomplishments, ahead of them. These kind of tragedies inevitably lead us to muse on the fragility and impermanence of life; the idea that people we can sometimes take for granted in our lives can be here one minute and gone the next. Are there lessons to be drawn from the manner of their passing? Two died in the crash of a light aircraft near Kelowna; another perished in a cliff dive north of Pemberton. Adventurous pursuits, some would say, statistically speaking. But what can we say of the remaining two, who died in a head-on collision, travelling roads that many of us travel regularly without ever acknowledging the risk? The fact is that life, itself, is a risk – and no one knows for sure which day will be their last. There is one generalization that fits all of the five we now mourn. Each, in his or her own way, lived life to the fullest. Each of them is remembered for a spirit that embraced life, love and the sheer joy of existence. They didn’t sell themselves short, didn’t shy away or hide from the blessings and misfortunes that life can bring. At the end of the day, at the end of all-too-brief lives, friends and family remember them as happy. And that’s something we can all hold onto.

Last week we asked...

Do you regularly shop in the U.S.?

yes 48% no 54% 124 responding After Mario gets off the phone, we pick up the blue-nose (which I name Storm) and put her in our truck. She leaps up and puts her head out of the window. Soon, she tires and rests her head on the console to give us kisses. This is the dog someone thought was worth nothing. Mario noted it may have been this gentle demeanor that resulted in her abandonment – some get pitbulls to make them look tough. “She was probably too gentle.” Another minus 10 points for humans. When we meet the animal-control officer in Bellingham and swap contact information, I make a promise to Storm. No matter what, she will not be put down. The officer is a pitbull owner herself. She assures me the humane society has many connections with local pitbull sanctuaries. An officer is dispatched to the stretch of freeway where Storm’s mate had ran off. On our way back, we see only darkness Despite our success in saving Storm, I can’t shake the guilt of leaving her mate behind. It makes me wonder why two strangers who simply happened upon these dogs care for them more deeply than someone who was entrusted with their lives. For some, a dog is just another fashion accessory. And that’s sad. But before I lose all faith in humanity, I remind myself that humans, like dogs, can’t be judged as a whole based on a few. Then I reach over and give Mila a kiss and thank everyday I have her in my life. Sarah Massah is a reporter and specialsections co-ordinator at the Peace Arch News.

Bad masters dog good ones Editor: Re: New ban for dogs, Aug. 16. It is a shame that the disgusting behaviour of a few ignorant dog owners results in less walking areas for all responsible dog owners. My wife and I and many friends have walked the parks and trails in South Surrey for years. We clean up after our dogs and even clean up messes left by other owners. We find there are less and less places to walk with your dog and no more dog parks than there were years ago. The two dog parks that are available are crowded and small. One of the biggest losses for dog owners was the First Nation land off 8 Avenue with great access to the beach. I don’t blame the Semiahmoo band for closing the park, as more and more people were leaving dog messes in the park and on the beach. My point is that the responsible dog owners and their dogs are being penalized for the actions of a few. My suggestions are: • Charge much higher fines for any dog owner witnessed leaving excrement on any public place. • Responsible dog owners, take a camera on your walk and film any offender; walk discreetly behind them to their residence and send the information to the City of Surrey for penalties. I am tired of irresponsible people in our society getting away with slaps on the wrist while the majority are paying the piper. A change is needed and now. Jim Enos, Surrey Q Again, irresponsible dog owners are ruining the enjoyment of some of our wonderful dogs who have responsible owners when walking Rover or Fido through parks, etc. Though I’ve never owned a dog, I love them all, immensely. I became a volunteer dog walker for the shelter in Toronto almost 50 years ago. We’d carry two poo bags on each walk, and disposed of the bag in garbage cans located along the streets. ‘Picking up’ became automatic. When I retired, I started a dogwalking business and kept to the routine of quickly picking up after a dog relieved itself, eventually disposing of the bag properly. It’s such a simple routine. Feces left on the ground in parks and on sidewalks is darned annoying – again, it’s not the animals, but dumb, uncaring owners. A couple of years ago, snow fences were put around some areas of soccer fields so that they could repair the areas ripped up during the season. Signs were posted to not walk in the area, and ‘no dogs.’ Sure enough, on at least two occasions as I was making my way around these fences to get to the track to work out, some dumb people were encouraging their dogs to go into this fenced area. The dogs, after scampering about for a little, stopped to urinate and/or defecate. The owners didn’t go in to pick up. I sometimes wish there was some way I could pick up the feces and

smear it on these unthinking jerks. The other side of the coin, I’ve walked through these parks when there are soccer practice or games going on. Family and friends are in folding chairs along the sides of the field, or lying on blankets – all have food and beverages. Yep, I’ve come back through these areas, and the amount of human garbage left is disturbing and disgusting! There are large garbage cans in the area, but these people choose to ignore them. Players discard a lot of adhesive tape. There’s lots of plastic cups, plates, utensils, paper napkins, scrunched up bags. Unbelievable! Why? These are all good people, and the beautiful soccer fields are well-maintained for their use. But why can’t they and the athletes pick up their garbage after themselves? At my ‘advanced’ age, I still walk dogs on occasion for friends and watch them closely so they don’t pick up garbage, and I’m ready to pick up ASAP after a dog has relieved itself. Please folks, pick up after Rover and Fido and help keep the city clean for all of us. Ruth Carrier, White Rock

Extra care and attention Editor: Unexpectedly this month, I was admitted to Peace Arch Hospital. Being new to the area, I was concerned about care, staffing, etc. With the news always being so negative about hospitals and medical care, I was apprehensive about making the trip to emergency. Wow, the news media needs to visit Peace Arch Hospital to see how blanket statements about the medical care in this province can be wrong. I can’t say enough good things about the high calibre of care, the empathy, the kindness, the total inclusion of my family in all decisions regarding my treatment plan, the way no one seemed too rushed to take a minute to talk, to give me that reassuring pat that makes you feel you are never alone. Know that if you ever are in need of medical care, Peace Arch Hospital is the place to go.

To the phenomenal staff at the hospital, please accept this public thank you for all you did for my family and me. It was and is so very, very much appreciated. Fran Banks, Surrey Q I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to the person who not only found my little change purse but took the time to return it to my house. While down at White Rock beach Sunday, I took my camera out of my purse, and I think that is when my change purse must have fallen out. Although there was no money in it, there was my driver’s licence. As soon as I realized it was gone – an hour, maybe two – my friends and I retraced my steps. We checked the tourism kiosk, the museum, the ground where I was, nothing… You can imagine my surprise when I got home and found it set nicely on my doormat. There are still kind people in this world and you, my friend, are one of them. My hope is that your kindness will be rewarded when you need it. Cheryl Thompson, Surrey

A decision to paint the railings and lamp posts along White Rock’s waterfront black has a letter-writer seeing red.

Feeling blue over painting it black Editor: Residents and taxpayers of White Rock, did you know that all of the beautiful blue promenade railings and lamp posts are now being painted black? I have always marvelled at how the blue of the railings accented the sky and made the water look even bluer. I’ve also noticed that many beachfront businesses have picked up on the blue and chosen to paint their shop fronts to match. Check out White Rock Muffler on the west end – painted white with blue trim to match the railings, with beautiful huge cascading flower baskets. You can imagine my shock to find the railings – blue for 20-25 years – being painted industrial black. City manager Dan Bottrill advised me he made the decision to paint all of the blue railings, lamp posts etc. black. I asked if council had voted on this decision or if White Rock taxpayers had been given an opportunity for any input. He advised it was not a council decision. He said the railings were in need of painting and he felt black was a better choice. He said he had received calls from people stating they liked the black better. He reminded me the pier had

already been painted and that they were already halfway done the promenade. He implied it was a done deal. This decision will certainly affect the restaurants and shops along Marine Drive. I thought the goal was to beautify the beachfront and encourage tourism in order to help support these struggling businesses? I’ve read that blue is described as a favourite colour by many and calls to mind feelings of calmness or serenity. It is described as peaceful, tranquil, secure and orderly. Blue can also lower the pulse rate and body temperature. Black – not so much. This is just wrong. First of all, I would like to know if the residents and taxpayers actually feel the industrial black is a better colour choice than the blue. Secondly, how do the taxpayers feel about such a huge decision being made without input from their elected officials or themselves? You pay huge taxes for the privilege of residing in this beautiful little seaside city, do you not deserve a say? I encourage you to call city hall at 604-541-2100 and let your voice be heard.

news Ferry lineup results in meltdown

Wait leads to arrest Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A Surrey senior is facing charges after allegedly having a meltdown at a Nanaimo ferry terminal. According to police, a 65-year-old man had been waiting to catch a ferry at Departure Bay ferry terminal in Nanaimo at about 4:45 p.m. on Sunday. When he learned there would be a three-sailing wait, the man grew irate, refusing to move his 1998 blue Volvo. Officers were called and explained to the man that he’d have to leave and return in a few hours, as there was no room for more vehicles. The man reportedly then drove his vehicle onto a sidewalk and was asked by police to produce his licence and

registration. He refused and drove off. A short time later, police say, a suspect was spotted at Stewart Avenue in Nanaimo. As the man was being arrested for obstruction, he flipped the car into gear and attempted to take off. The arresting officer jumped into the car and put it in park. “He was really irate, there were just massive waits,” said RCMP Sgt. Sheryl Armstrong. “It still doesn’t give him the right to do that.” The man suffered a cut to his head and was treated by ambulance crews. Armstrong noted people in a hurry are able to make reservations to ensure they’ve got a spot on a specific sailing.

Peninsula native Ben Trompetter poses for and with an equally happy Thai boy.

He shared his adventures  from page 1 But this time, he didn’t resurface. “I’ve climbed with Ben so many times,” said Melissa Jol, who became friends with Ben after the pair were hired as guides for the outdoor adventure-tour company, Beach Travellers. “He was my teacher. I just don’t want the public to think he was being an idiot.” Ben’s friends and family say they were devastated by information that authorities released regarding the tragedy, in particular a claim that Ben had jumped from a height of 175 feet. Searchers told the family at the scene that the actual height was 90-95 feet. The higher elevation “just doesn’t reflect the judgment of my brother,” said Tyler Trompetter, 25. Searchers also told the family that it wasn’t the jump itself that killed Ben, but the glacial temperature of the water he leaped into. Having spent much time over the past four years as a guide in Thailand – where he became serious about free-climbing – Ben was accustomed to more tropical climes. The cold water likely sent his body into shock, the searchers said. “He knew what he was doing,” said his dad, Alan Trompetter. Ben’s dad was among those who searched extensively for the young man over the weekend, diving into the lake’s chilly depths over and over in the hopes of finding him. “He just wanted to bring him home.” Alan said he had often “ripped” his son for free-climbing, telling him he

was tempting fate because of the risk. “I guess he tempted fate too much.” Ben’s body was found around 11 a.m. Sunday in about 70 feet of water. Tonight, Ben’s former Bayside Rugby teammates will toast their friend. A service is planned for Thursday, Aug. 30, at Peace Portal Alliance Church, 15128 27B Ave. at 3 p.m. The family plans to spread ashes at Anderson Lake and to take some to Thailand, for the ‘family’ he had there, as Ben’s time there changed his life. As a guide, Ben would introduce those who came to the country – including his mom, Tyler and younger sister, Meghan – to its charms and people; to the place he fell in love with. Along the way, he found a passion for fire-spinning and shared his free spirit with children he met through work in area orphanages. The Beach Travellers’ teams would bring school supplies and rain gear to the various facilities and always took time to interact and play with the kids who called them home. For Ben, it was important that the children knew they mattered. Earlier this summer, Ben made the heart-wrenching decision to give up tour-guiding, and go back to school. He arrived back in B.C. on July 30. By all accounts, Ben was never one to let fear stop him. “He knew the risks,” his mom said, of her son’s choice to free-climb. “I’m not mad at him, I can’t be. We knew he was like a rhino. I knew I had to let him go and live the life that he had lived.”

Due to a strong demand, once again Ben Benson has been invited to China to give seminars on buying real estate in the Lower Mainland

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!

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.

Honouring the late Mary Hartwell

Scholarships awarded Staff Reporter

David Hawkins calls it “a very nice dilemma.” There were so many excellent candidates among applicants for the first scholarship in the name of his late wife, Mary Hartwell, that choosing just one would be hard to do. “They were just remarkably impressive,” Hawkins said this week. “The talent pool was going to make it extremely difficult.” So he decided to bump the funding available using money from an RRSP

his wife had left him as part of her estate. “At 69, I figured that was idle money.” On Sunday, Aug. 19, three people were officially awarded $2,500 each. Lucy Brain, Samantha Smith and Grace Augustinowicz are all studying food, nutrition and sustainable agriculture. Hawkins, a director of the White Rock Farmers’ Market, hopes to establish a sustainable foundation that could fund scholarships on a continuing basis.

Melissa Seselja named runner-up

Narrow miss for international title A South Surrey woman who took a run at representing Job’s Daughters at the international level narrowly missed the title during competition in Baltimore, Md., earlier this month.

Seselja had focused her sights on the international event after winning the B.C. title this past spring. She has been a

Q

I have been sued for divorce by my wife of 12 years. Over the last 10 years, I have built up a business to which she contributed nothing. She stayed at home raising our three daughters, and only worked at little, low paying jobs during our marriage. Her lawyer is demanding that I disclose all my business affairs to him, and says that when he gets my Ànancial statements he will get an expert to give an opinion about what my business is worth and claim half of its value. I have refused to give any such information, because I built the business myself and should not be compelled to share it. I had a lawyer, but I Àred him because wanted me to cooperate. My opinion is that if they have no information, they can’t do anything. Right? No. Your wife’s lawyer has two remedies that come to mind. There may be more. Firstly, you can be found to be in contempt of court, and may spend some time in jail. Secondly, a court can impute a business income to you, and a value to your business using the imputed income, and award an amount to your wife based on an estimate. The amount awarded can be enforced through judicial proceedings against properties, shares, investments and bank accounts.

Members of the White Rock Millennium Rotary got down and dirty in soil at Bryant Park Wednesday night, weeding and watering the greenery they planted in July. Last year, the club adopted Bryant Park, after helping with its development in 2003 as part of the Rotary Centennial Project. “The Rotary provided $30,000 in financing for developing the park and residents nearby donated $6,000 in memorial benches and stones. It’s been a real

community thing from the get-go,” said Rotary member Joanne Taylor. As part of the adoption, the group gets together five times a year to get the park into tip-top shape, with help from the City of White Rock, planting greenery and flowers, weeding and watering. “It was the natural step to take, adopting the park, after we had helped get it developed. It’s dear to our hearts,” Taylor said. “We all love it. It’s something all the members look forward to. People should stop by and see the efforts.”

lifestyles Upcoming event has lots of space left

A party fit for all of the Peninsula’s princesses Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

It’s time to dust off the tiara and find a gown fit for royalty for the third annual White Rock Princess Party. Little girls on the Peninsula once again have the opportunity to visit a land of make-believe accompanied by friends straight out of their favourite fairy tales Saturday, Aug. 26. Organized by longtime White Rock resident Myra Merkel, the special day is designed to make each girl feel like the princess she is, inside and out, while learning about core values. “We do lots of fun, girly things and there is the princess aspect, but there is a deeper part,” Merkel said. “We want to help build a positive, loving and accepting community. It’s the kind of community I want my grandkids to grow up in.” Merkel began organizing the royal event two years ago, after she was inspired by her son, Evan Bird – a White Rock firefighter – who biked across Canada with seven other men to raise funds and awareness for Variety. “I thought it was an amazing thing to do and I said I wanted to get involved with fundraising. So, I thought, what can I do that would involve little girls. My son has two little girls and, of course, they are the most precious things to me in

Cinderella sits with a group of princesses from all over the Peninsula at the princess party in 2010. the world,” Merkel said. That was when she decided to host her first princess party, which received an overwhelming response. Deciding to use the event as a way to garner awareness and funds for a local charity, Merkel sat down

with her son to find a cause they could support. “I wanted to do something close to home,” Merkel said. “Evan had always wanted to build an all-abilities park on the beach that would serve all people of all ages and all abilities.

“When he told me his idea, I said I could get behind that.” With the help of local businesses, friends and volunteers, nearly 190 princesses were treated to a day of fun, complete with a visit with their fairy godmother, raising more than $10,000 for the fund.

Merkel hopes to have similar success with this year’s event, which still has plenty of room available for latecomers. Saturday’s event will include a slew of fun activities, including a cakewalk, cookie decorating, professional photographs and facepainting. Each princess will be greeted by a fairy godmother and will receive her very own tiara. Tied into each activity will be one of eight core values – helpfulness, friendliness, courteousness, thankfulness, kindness, being considerate, loving and honest. “If we all embodied those virtues, the world would be a better place,” Merkel said. Best of all, Merkel promises a very special guest will be sharing the special day with the girls. “This year, we have Snow White coming to help with all the activities,” she said. “It will be a wonderful, magical day that takes you back to your childhood. We have so many moms who come by, and to see their faces as they relive their childhood – dreaming about glass slippers and their Prince Charming – it’s just so wonderful.” The party will be held from 12:30-3 p.m. at Star of the Sea community centre, 15262 Pacific Ave. To sign up, or for more information about the upcoming event, visit www.wrprincessparty.com

Fun Sun IN THE

With more than 20 years of experience in the travel industry under her belt, Elaine Ross knows a thing or two about planning a great vacation. The owner of Uniglobe Travelex in Central Plaza in White Rock has traveled all over the world and has helped her Peninsula clients explore new countries and cultures. Elaine Ross “I’ve been putting together escorted tours to Europe every year,” Elaine said, noting that her tours, which consist of 12-14 people, provide an intimate experience, unique to Uniglobe Travelex. With a team comprised of longtime employees who have been with the company for at least 9 years, Elaine is able to find exactly what her clients are looking for. “We’ve got experts in just about every country. People who speak different languages and know about different cultures. Between the whole team, we have about 300 years of experience. I really value my team,” Elaine said. “Some even have more experience than me. Our motto is, ‘no is not an option.’ So if it’s out there, we’ll find it and get it.” The full-service travel company helps groups of all sizes with all their travel needs – from all sports, band and dance groups, senior groups, and wedding parties, to custom packages, designed to fit your requirements. One of their most popular services has to be the bridal registry for brides and grooms, Elaine said. “For people who have been together three or four years before getting married, they don’t need another toaster,” she said. “We can set up a registry where wedding guests can put money into their honeymoon fund.” The bride and groom are able to include a card detailing the information of the registry with their wedding invites, and when a guest contributes to the fund, Elaine and her team give them a card to include with their wedding card. “It’s a wonderful gift for the couple who has everything. And of course, we include some special gifts like beach towels, champagne and a dinner for two at a local restaurant,” Elaine said. Whether it’s a honeymoon you’re planning or a fun family vacation, the team at Uniglobe Travelex in Central Plaza can help you plan the trip of your dreams.

And if you’re looking for high-end casual lifestyle wear, then head to Grandview Corners and check out what Extreme Clothing has to offer. The locally-owned and operated store has a great team of friendly staff who will help you find what your looking for to gear up for the school year. Chris & Erin Davidson “There are lots of colours for fall. It’s definitely not boring,” said owner Erin Davidson. “Coloured and patterned bottoms are going to be a huge trend, and there will be lots of sweaters for girls making it onto the shelves this fall.” And of course, it’s hard to carry your books without a backpack. Erin suggests taking a look at the wide selection of canvas backpacks, perfect for the fall weather. “Branded fleece, tees and backpacks are always important,” she said. Along with casual favourites like Quicksilver, Roxy, Volcom, Hurley, RipCurl, Fox and Garcia, Extreme also stocks extreme sports brands, like Metal Mulisha. Best of all, with Extreme, you don’t have to wait around for a sale. The store is continually offering great deals on the hottest styles. But it doesn’t hurt that there is a summer clearance underway to make way for the cozy knits and sweaters of fall. And back to school isn’t back to school without new denim – check out Extreme’s great selection of brand name men’s and women’s jeans. In addition to a large selection of the latest brand names and fashions, it’s the store’s customer service that makes Extreme Clothing a favourite shopping destination. The owners and staff are thrilled for the opportunity to be a part of the small business community in the town they live in, and their love for what they do is evident in their commitment to helping others find that perfect outfit.

Peace Arch Toyota

2012 Toyota PRIUS

Since 1966, Peace Arch Toyota has been serving Peninsula residents for all their automobile needs while providing top-quality customer service. Not much has changed in the more than 40 years the dealership has been in business, with the Toyota team following their formula of finding the right car for each person. “We do get a lot of satisfaction from our sales results, but one of the things that our team does well is look after their customers properly and professionally,” said Sales Manager Bruce McCallum.

for $329 per month

Bruce McCallum

Proof of that service can be found in the Peace Arch Toyota team being awarded the Toyota President’s Pride award for customer satisfaction twice in three years. “It’s with our customer’s help that we are leading the way into 2012,” McCallum said. With more than 20 years in the automobile industry – and the last 12 as a member of the Toyota team – McCallum has a wealth of experience and knowledge to share with his sales team. By enforcing Toyota’s core values, McCallum hopes to banish the notion of pushy car salespeople, and focus on creating an enjoyable buying experience. “I love when I hear from customers about how comfortable they felt during the sales process,” McCallum said. “Obviously, a lot of that comfort comes from purchasing a quality product like a Toyota, but it also comes from the people that they deal with here at the store. I’m so proud of my staff on how well they put their customers’ needs first. “They truly live up to their role as product advisors.” Whether you’re looking for a brand new Toyota or a car that has a few kilometres on the dash, there is something for everyone at Peace Arch. And with gas prices soaring, why not take a look at the extensive hybrid selection – including the Camry, Highlander and the Prius. Speaking of Prius, the popular line has expanded to three new models – the traditional liftback, the larger Prius V and the newest member, the Prius C, which gets an unbelievable 81 miles per gallon. “Not only do all these vehicles save you money on fuel, they are great for the environment.” For more information, come by and talk with a knowledgeable product advisor about the selection of vehicles offered at Peace Arch Toyota.

South Point Dental Centre

Thursday, August 23, 2012 Peace Arch News

i s CLEAR LY y ou r b est ch o ice for a b etter Smile!

You are never too young or too old to have a beautiful, radiant smile. Provided you look after your teeth and gums, they will look great and stay healthy for life. Dr. Edmund Wong While healthy oral hygiene habits start at home, regular professional dental check-ups are an absolute must. With a dedication to your oral health, the dentists and staff at South Point Dental Centre and their wide range of dental services will help you keep your smile looking its very best. Dr. Edmund Wong, a local resident and proud father of two, opened the Peninsula practice more than eleven years ago, offering a friendly, warm atmosphere and dental services that reach far beyond basic dentistry. One of his most innovative and popular procedures is the placement of mini dental implants. Small in diameter (less than three millimeters), the implants require a minimally invasive procedure and are placed under local anesthetic. The mini implants are extremely useful for patients with loose dentures who want an easy solution to secure them in place or who prefer a less invasive dental treatment than wide neck implants. Dr. Wong is also one of the few dentists in the Surrey area who is a Preferred Provider of Invisalign. The clear, removable teeth aligners are a popular alternative to conventional metal braces and are completely invisible. To find out more about Invisalign or other procedures, Laura, office manager of South Point Dental, invites anyone looking for a new dentist to make an appointment for a complimentary meet and greet. “Feeling comfortable plays a significant role in dental care, which is why we encourage prospective patients to come in and meet our three dentists: Dr. Wong, Dr. Norina Leung and Dr. Angie Lohachitranont, as well as the rest of our friendly, professional staff,” she says.

World Serve Thrift Store

ऐऄऎअंऐ

Don’t be fooled by the name. Although WorldServe Thrift in Hillcrest Mall is dedicated to helping people all over the world, the organization never forgets about the people in its community. Since the inception of the store three-years ago, the faith-based Canadian non-profit organization supports WorldServe Ministries Canada by assisting national Christian leaders in China, Cuba and Ethiopia to launch micro-finance projects, provide Melody & Bessie humanitarian aid and distribute the Christian Scriptures with the help of people on the Peninsula. This widely-spaced store is clean and organized, making it easy to find great quality home décor items, kitchenware, books, records, fashion apparel and accessories, tools, hardware and other collectible treasures all donated by individuals of our local community. Re.new, Re.purpose and Re.cycle are actions that manager Melody Jobse and her volunteer team take to heart. When it’s time to freshen up a room, change a colour scheme or de-cluttering the home, the items you don’t require could be just what someone else is looking for. Come and Re.cycle the things you no longer require and, with a little paint, some time and a bit of care, an old, worn item can be Re.newed and Re.purposed into someone’s new signature piece. While people from all over the world are receiving support from WST, the store also gives back right here, at home. Many members of the community are able to get a helping hand from the store when they need it the most. “When we receive too much of something or receive an item of lesser quality, we’ll Re.direct items to our partners, including NightShift Ministry, the Reading Tree foundation and Surrey Urban Mission. Recently, in conjunction with Delta Mental Health Services, two clients were able to shop for appropriate outfits for their job search interviews. Each were given a $25 store credit to spend on outfits that suited them. “The clients left beaming with confidence, looking great in their new ensembles,” Jobse said. “It really ties into our mission, ‘Serving Locally-Impacting Globally’. Shopping hours - 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Donation hours - 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Swirl Wine Store Wine-lovers on the Semiahmoo Peninsula donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go far for a great selection of B.C. vino thanks to the outstanding selection at Swirl Wine. Swirl Wine Store is White Rockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s / South Surreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only BC VQA Wine store. With over 650 BC VQA wines and more than Jeff Wong 80 wines under $15, there is no reason not to uncork a delicious bottle of locally made wine, says owner Jeff Wong. His store sells wine at the same price as the winery or your local government store. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I fell in love with the Okanagan Valley and visit it three or four times a year,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get enough.â&#x20AC;? At Swirl Wines, the knowledgeable staff hand sell their wines and provide wine pairing advice, gift ideas, assemble custom gift baskets and even hold free daily tastings. Swirl staff prides themselves great customer service and with over 650 wines to choose from they can ďŹ nd wines for everyone. Wines are priced from $8.49 to $99.99. Come down and checkout the vast selection. Jeff knows itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to tell what the wine will taste like, and acknowledges that many people pick a wine based on an attractive label, which is why they allow sampling before purchase. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe in a try before you buy philosophy,â&#x20AC;? said Jeff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you try it and you like it, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more likely to purchase it.â&#x20AC;? The excellent customer service, exceptional selection and pricing, which is is on par with government liquor stores, is just a few of the many reasons why Swirl Wine Store is the place to go for all things wine. Jeff recently opened a wine & cider in south surrey called South Surrey Wine and Cider Store. This latest venture carries BCVQA wine, wines made from BC and International juice and ciders. It is a very unique store with most wines priced between $8.00 to $14.00. There is also some top BC VQA Wine labels. It is located at 13977 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 16 Avenue in South Surrey.

Get the “look” for Fall.

JJ+Whiskey There is no doubt that Courtney (GoGo) MacCuish has had a passion for fashion all her life. Since she was seven, GoGo has been working in the industry. First, helping her father by hanging up new merchandise and steaming the clothing, to later owning her own clothing store in Kerrisdale Courtney ‘GoGo’ MacCuish “My dad always had clothing stores, so when I was fifteen I started working weekends and after school at his stores,” GoGo said. “I’ve always been in the clothing business.” Now, the young entrepreneur is taking the reigns from longtime family friend and owner Kate, as the owner of JJ+Whiskey. “I actually worked at JJ+Whiskey five years ago. I’ve had a history with the store and have always loved the boutique and the people there,” GoGo said. “I’ve been good friends with Kate for years, and when she wanted a change of pace, she discussed the idea of me taking on the boutique and I thought it was a great idea.” For many her age, the idea of taking on ownership of a store could be daunting, but for GoGo becoming the new owner of JJ+Whiskey fit like the perfect little black dress.

And while GoGo plans on keeping the unique vibe of the store, she does plan on expanding the brands to also cater to a bit more mature clientele. “We’re planning on bringing in brands like Sandwich and Mexx,” she says. “My store in Kerrisdale is a mother-daughter boutique and that’s what I hope to do here.

Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut When Peninsula residents need to satiate a sweet tooth, the first name that pops into mind is Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut. The winner of a Business of the Year award at this year’s White Rock South Surrey Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards has built a reputation for excellent quality with a rich history. The family-owned and run business is devoted Jacqueline Pearson to making exquisite chocolates with signature ingredients. With two master chocolatiers at the helm, handcrafting the divine sweets, it’s no wonder Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut has been a favourite on the Peninsula for 20 years. Jacqueline Pearson’s father, Malcolm, brought the company to the Peninsula, establishing the high level of quality and craftsmanship before handing the reigns to her. Now, as tastes and flavours evolve, Jacqueline is adding new products to the line, including sea salt caramel. A perfect mix of salty and sweet, this chocolate was originally introduced as part of The Twelve collection of chocolates. Handmade from scratch using a recipe tested and perfected by Maître Chocolatier, Derrick Pho, the sweet treat doesn’t just stand out for the buttery taste and texture, but for the fact that it doesn’t stick to teeth – perfect for indulging on a date. Once the caramel is cooked, it’s rolled out by hand and then cut into pieces before being encased in delicious milk chocolate and topped with fleur de sel to add the perfect salty finish. Another welcome addition has to be Patisserie Triebow macarons. The light, flavourful meringue cookies sandwich a decadent filling, and are a treat to break into. Eat one cookie and a symphony of textures play in your mouth with the smooth crisp shell, moist and chewy interior – a perfect bite. And with flavours like salted caramel, lemon, cassis and coffee and hazelnut, it’s hard not to want to try them all. And of course, the treats at Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut are a great way to say thanks to those who have helped out over the summer season. But make sure you get extra, after you see what’s in-store, you might not want to give any away!

It’s hot!

GIVE THE GIFT OF GOOD CHOCOLATE. Our chocolates are handcrafted using the best chocolate, the finest natural ingredients and no preservatives. Locally-owned and operated, we are winner of the 2012 Business of the Year Award (category of 1 to 7 employees) from the South Surrey White Rock Chamber of Commerce.

Ocean Park Village Dental Newcomers to the Peninsula, Dr. Patrick Lum and Dr. Richard Kofsky of Ocean Park Village Dental, bring a wealth of knowledge in the dental industry to residents. With 51 years of combined dental experience, the two dentists are able to put patients at ease at what can be, at times, a very stressful experience. Dr. Lum & Dr. Kofsky For example, the dental team offers appointments in the evening and on Saturdays in order to better accommodate each patient’s specific scheduling needs. “We know that patients have busy lives and many demands on their time, with various commitments and family outings,” Dr. Lum said. “Which is why we work hard to be flexible about appointments.” The full-service family dental office is also able to handle most dental issues that require attention onsite without much delay. The two doctors also strive to properly explain and plan treatment options using plain English, so patients are able to fully understand their options. “Dentistry does not need to be complicated,” Dr. Lum said. “One’s treatment needs can and should be ordered and staged to take place in a logical manner to fit most people’s budgets.” And while the doctors admit, there is a tendency to “wow” patients with technology, gizmos and widgets, that’s not the most important part. “We have all this great technology to help you with your needs, but at the end of the day, the most important aspect of dentistry is thinking,” Dr. Lum said. “The scientific reasoning is the underlying support for the treatment that the dentist is providing for you.” And behind each good dentist is a great support staff. Dr. Lum and Dr. Kofsky have a great team of hygienists, dental assistants and administrative staff who have received complete training so they are experienced and knowledgeable, ensuring a pleasant experience for patients. Don’t put off that toothache. Come down to Ocean Park Village Dental, where new patients are always welcome, and speak to the team about what you can do to get a happy and healthy smile.

arts & entertainment …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Inaugural production a huge success

Beach House Theatre brings dream to life I

t was a midsummer night’s dream come true. Beach House Theatre Company’s splendid inaugural production, Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, did just about everything right. From the well laid-out and supervised site, the friendly volunteers, excellently spaced seating and Alex Browne sightlines under a spacious tent awning, and a creative-yetfunctional set that made the most of a backdrop of rippling waters and Crescent Beach sunsets, to – most importantly of all – an entertaining and well-acted production on stage, this was a theatrical experience that did not disappoint. The heroic efforts of production designer Nicole Chartrand and technical director Geoff McEvoy’s succeeded admirably in creating a convincing theatre space on Blackie Spit. Indeed, both the site – and the show itself – compared favourably with more than a few Bard on the Beach productions I have seen. One might quibble over one or two casting and costume choices, or debate the show’s rather downto-earth depiction of the ‘faerie realm’ – but such criticisms would be largely a matter of personal taste. The overriding fact remains that everyone involved with this crowd-pleasing production was working at a high level and to the best of their abilities. Beach House artistic director Candace Radcliffe and associate artistic director Rick Harmon’s detailed interpretation of the play couldn’t have been bettered in depicting motive and characterization, and the actors did a commendable job of projecting voices in the tent setting so that everyone could hear and

The inaugural production of Beach House Theatre’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream was nearly flawless. understand each turn of the plot. Shakespeare’s central conceit in A Midsummer Night’s Dream is of a landscape of ‘dreams’ and a landscape of the ‘real world’ that exist side by side. Both are reflections and distortions of the other, he suggests – and the line separating them can often be a blurry one. This notion was reinforced by the directors’ decision to cast James Walker as both Theseus, Duke of Athens, and Oberon, King of the Fairy Realm. It posed an intriguing possibility: are they really separate characters, or two sides of the same personality? Walker, who has become one of local theatre’s most assured performers, was skillful in bringing out this duality, while allowing his

sense of humour to inform both roles. As Theseus, he successfully sketched a powerful man who tempers his authority with smoothness, reason and gentle humour, while, as Oberon, he projected a being who, while possessing ultimate power, sees fit to use it only for trivial pranks and petty attempts to score points against his Queen, Titania. As the latter, Dana Schindel offered a commanding and appropriately regal presence – even when spellbound – while Sheena Johnson, as Theseus’ betrothed, the Amazon Hippolyta, successfully suggested strength as well as a playful, loving quality. Marina Benitez-Lazzarotto, as Puck – Oberon’s haphazard

mediator between the ‘dream’ and ‘real’ worlds – stole scenes left, right and centre with a dazzling combination of uninhibited zaniness and well-achieved comedic mime. Her over-the-top schtick – which at times suggested an unholy fusing of Peter Pan and Tinkerbell – seemed tailored for the many laughs she won, but at the core of her performance was a disciplined, well thought-out characterization. Russel Chartrand, too, stole many scenes as Nick Bottom, principal blowhard of a group of wellmeaning tradespeople determined to present a play to entertain their Duke. He put his well-developed comedic sense to exceptional use exploring all the possibilities of the oafish, egotistical twit,

winning laughs with Bottom’s determination to play every role in the play, and in the weaver’s quite literal transformation into an ass while finding he is also the object of Titania’s love. But he also had some hilarious competition from the other would-be Thespians: Adam Olgui, as a perpetually-confused and frazzled Peter Quince; Paul Richardson as a beardless Flute, who resists but ultimately embraces an ingenue role; Nicki Carbonneau as a dense and gaptoothed Robin Starveling; Reginald Pillay, touching and inventive as hypersensitive Snout and Rory Tucker, spot-on as a slow-witted Snug. The quartet of Athenian lovers, divided by fate, spells and crossed purposes, were also well-served. Anne Van Leeuwen offered an appealing, completely-nuanced performance as the bemused Helena, Rylan Schinkel was less varied, but strong nonetheless, as a defiant Hermia, while Nick Hugh and Shane Robinson, as Lysander and Demetrius, were suitably earnest and ardent in pursuit of their loves, and agreeably humorous in their inept combat. Roger Hussen gave a fine, focused performance as Hermia’s peevish dad, Egeus. Sarah English was amusingly dismissive of the amateur ‘entertainment’ as Theseus’ master of revels Philostrate, while Jacob Hildebrand did well standing in for what could have been a throng of servants. One could have wished for more fairies, too, but Paula Cooper, Cassidy Johnson, Mikayla Hart and Marika Stanger made good use of music and movement (including some effective choreography by Carol Seitz) to create atmosphere – and I liked their vocal harmonies as they sang Titania to sleep in her bower. Linda Weston’s costumes made evocative use of traditional ‘Shakespearian garb’ – albeit with a few more modern elements, such as leotards – while lighting and sound design complemented the play at every turn.

Outside The Box, the second annual celebration of fibre and textile arts returns to White Rock Sept. 8 to Oct. 5. A special preview event will be hosted by the White Rock Library on Wednesday, Sept. 5. Dance group The Fusionistas will present an art in motion performance featuring conceptualized fibre and textile designs. The combination of dance and artistic costuming explores a rich history of dance from around the world, including improvisational tribal style, belly dance, flamenco, folkloric and Kathak, leader Stephanie Lafreniere said. “Our dance demonstrates the strength, empowerment and beauty of women working together, exploring ideas and being creative,” she said. “It is a meeting of the three most ancient modes of expression: visual art, dance and music (rhythm).” All are welcome.

U16 team wins third place in 2012 Beach Volleyball Nationals

Volleyball players bring home bronze C

ompetitors from South Surrey and White Rock posted podium-worthy performances at the 2012 Beach Volleyball National Championships over the Aug. 18 weekend in Vancouver. In the girls U-16 division, Peninsula athletes Tessa Neil and Darby Dunn won bronze. Both 14, Neil and Dunn were a year younger than most competitors and were competing in their first national championship. They just began playing as a team this year. “I definitely think having a good bond with your partner makes a big difference,” Neil said. “You have to have that bond.” In boys U-14, South Surrey residents Tyson Smith and Allan Hogg collected bronze by defeating a Nanaimo team 15-13 in the third set.

Other local winners included Devon Dunn and Chris Wilson of South Surrey, who won bronze in U-18 boys tier 1. In total, B.C. teams took 24 of 48 medals. Organizers said good weather at the threeday event at Spanish Banks drew large crowds and generated entertaining matches, with many in the adult division 1 going into extra points. “It was an awesome showcase for our sport this weekend in Vancouver,” said Volleyball BC’s executive director Chris Densmore. Other winning teams in the area included Juliana Penner and Tresyre Stevenson of Surrey, winning gold in Tier 2 U-18, as well as Nicole and Megan McNamara of Delta, twin sisters who were competing in the U-18 tier 1 category despite being only 15, who won gold. - Tracy Holmes & Dan Ferguson

Surrey plays Friday

Eagles start training for preseason

Evan Seal photo

Eagles coach Matt Erhart looks on as his team plays during training camp, which began Monday. Surrey plays Friday against the Langely Rivermen.

The Surrey Eagles returned to the ice this week, as training camp opened Monday. The Eagles, who advanced to BC Hockey League Coastal Conference finals last year before being ousted by the Powell River Kings, held twice-daily practices for prospective and returning players, and players – split into two squads – scrimmaged each evening until the three-day camp closed Wednesday.

Defending champ wins title The 2011 winner of the Peace Portal Ladies Club championship has repeated her feat, taking home the low gross title Aug. 15 following three days of play. Karen Pultz entered the third day with a seven shot lead for the title. She shot an 83 to win by 10 strokes over second-place finisher Mary Feenan and third-place competitor Maxine Hamm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was not at my best, as I have not played enough competitive reps of golf, but I still managed the win,â&#x20AC;? Pultz said. Pultz now heads to Charlottetown for the Canadian Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Senior Amateur competition.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am determined to better my previous best at the nationals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is a fifth-place finish,â&#x20AC;? she said. The low net club champion, Rita Clarkson, came back from a seven-stroke deficit on day three. She finished tied with Marilyn Thurston for low net. Both players then

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

home is worth?

A.There are a number of ways to determine your homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value. The ďŹ rst item is to disregard your view of your homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth and start considering what it is worth to a prospective buyer. Chances are you have invested a lot of time and money into ďŹ xing up your house to be the perfect home. A buyer doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t share your memories or care about your ďŹ nancial situation. A buyer cares about the value of the home in their lives. The second item to consider is the comparative market analysis (CMA). This tool allows you to see what other similar homes have sold for in your area. Be sure to ask why certain homes were included on the CMA while others were not. The CMA is often a good tool to use to determine your beginning asking price. Consider going to open houses in your area to learn how other homes compare to yours. Remember to look at other homes with the impartial eye of a buyer, not from the view of a current homeowner looking to sell. Using the price per square foot formula is a good way to compare your home to others. This should not be the only determinant, but it can be helpful in setting a fair asking price.

Bosa Properties brings parking innovation to Jameson House

Parking without the hassle Bosa Properties is bringing innovation to one of life’s little annoyances with its automated parking system at its Jameson House development in Coal Harbour. “The parking garage would have been 12 levels” if Bosa had gone with a conventional parking system, says Senior Vice-President Daryl Simpson. There are 250 parking spots in the development, and two transfer stations to move the cars. Simpson says the wait time to park and retrieve the car is about two minutes, but it depends on how many others are waiting. “It’s quicker than driving around and around,” he says, adding that this

system is the first of its kind in Canada, and the second-largest in North America. Homeowners pull into the garage and drive their car onto one of the stations. Then, you lock their car and type in your PIN. You can then go up to your home while the machines move the car into one of the spaces below. When you want to retrieve your car, you go back to the garage and type in your PIN. Your car will appear, and you’re on your way. The homes at Jameson House are now sold out, but with the popularity of the automated parking system, it’s only a matter of time until the technology is used elsewhere.

adjust the thermostat and view the inside of your home from a video camera in the centre of the home. The Lakefront homes include some upgrades as standard items, including hardwood floors on the main level and granite countertops in the kitchen, among several other things. The screened porches at the Cottages are referred to as summer rooms, and overlook the landscape. They are perfect for a mid-summer snooze, catching up with a good book or a quiet cup of coffee watching the sunrise. There is no shortage of ways to wile away your time in Osoyoos. The surrounding area itself is rich in things to do, from touring the amazing nearby wineries to floating around on Osoyoos Lake. Hiking and biking trails are

abundant, or you can book a round of golf at one of the golf courses. If you’re around in the winter, winter sports on Mount Baldy are only about 40 minutes away, or you can venture a bit farther afield to Penticton’s Apex Mountain. The price has been one of the biggest draws for people who have already purchased a cottage. “Where else could you get a 930-square-foot detached home, a three-minute barefoot walk from the lake for under $305,000, including all applicable taxes?” asks Van Maren. “Our prices are lower than many new apartment condos that aren’t even on the water.” Cottages start at $305,000. For more information, visit osoyooscottages.com or call 1-855-742-5555.

Spending the summer at the cottage

Waterfront living at The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake by Kerry Vital

Whether you’re looking for a vacation spot for the whole family or a place to retire after years of hard work, you need look no further than The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake, located right on the shores of the beautiful lake. “We found a spectacular waterfront property at a very affordable price, on Canada’s warmest lake,” says Eric Van Maren, Partner of Van Maren Construction Group. “Most people from B.C., and many from Alberta, are familiar with Osoyoos and have vacationed there in the past. A property like The Cottages just can’t be purchased in the Okanagan.” With over 1,500 feet of waterfront, 500 feet of beach, two swimming pools, a 7,000-square-foot clubhouse, 20 acres of lawn, boat slips and walking trails, the Cottages are the perfect spot for families of all sizes. There are three different styles of home available, Van Maren says, and thus truly something for everyone. “The Meadow homes are most appealing for second-home buyers,” he says. “They have lots of open space between the homes where younger children can play with newly made friends. You’re never more than a few minutes walk to the lake and clubhouse.” The Lakeside homes are made for people who want to live right on the water, while the Hillside homes appeal to those looking for somewhere to live year-round, and are larger. There are 14 different two- to four-bedroom floorplans to choose from, ranging from 1,281 square feet

We found a spectacular waterfront property at a very affordable price, on Canada’s warmest lake,” says Eric Van Maren.

including the screened porch and open deck to over 3,000 square feet. Expansive windows on every home and cottage let the natural light pour in and allow you a beautiful view of your surroundings, while the nine-foot ceilings contribute to a great sense of space, no matter the floorplan or how many visitors you have. You will never feel cramped in the homes at The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake. All of the homes offer wood-clad vaulted ceilings. Vinyl-plank flooring throughout the main living space (with hardwood as an optional upgrade) is ready to stand up to plenty of foot traffic, while the plush carpeting on the upper floors is soft and luxurious. Each home includes a Wireless Smart Home Automation/Security system, which allows you to remotely access your cottage from your smartphone, computer or tablet. It gives you the ability to lock or unlock your doors,

EMPLOYMENT/EDUCATION 42 REID, Isabelle Mary Maud (nee Taylor) May 12, 1923 August 4, 2012 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved Wife, Mother, Grand-mother & Great Grandmother. Isabelle will be sadly missed by her husband of 65 years, Donald; and the family, Kerry (Karin) of Peachland, Robert (Karen) of South Surrey, Grandchildren Andrew, Shannon and Great Grandchild Blythe. She was predeceased by brothers Glenford and Eldred. She was born and grew up in the Marpole area of Vancouver, living in Richmond, B.C. for most of her married life. Isabelle worked for the Federal Government and RCAF until she married Donald in 1947. She had a long career working in administrative positions with her longest employment as a School Secretary with the Richmond School Board, retiring in 1987. Throughout her life she enjoyed square dancing, travel, playing bridge, power shopping and corresponding with her family and friends. She led a Christian life and was a thoughtful friend, loving wife and caring mother. Her family was her biggest joy. By her choice, there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, we invite you to donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon.
