Items yanked from older victims’ necks and wrists

Jewelry thief strikes Newton women Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Police are urging the public not to flaunt their valuables in public following a string of brazen jewelry thefts from women in Newton. It’s believed the same man may be responsible for the crimes, in which bracelets, necklaces and other jewelry were ripped from the necks and wrists of the victims. “It was jewelry that was definitely in plain

sight and therefore made it an easy target to grab and run,” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said Friday. Four such incidents were reported between Sept. 23 and Oct. 2. All of them took place outside, in the afternoon hours, and “a little bit off the beaten path.” On three occasions, the suspect was seen leaving the area in a dark-coloured, older minivan. Paquet said police have not identified any pattern to the thefts beyond the fact that the

incidents appear to be crimes of opportunity against older women wearing clearly visible jewelry. They have not been isolated to one area of Newton. Paquet did not know the value of the jewelry taken, but said there is no indication that the thief is discerning between highand lower-end adornments. “Seems like they were attracted to shiny objects,” he said. No injuries were reported.

Descriptions of the suspect have been similar in each case: a Caucasian man in his 40s with a slim build and white hair. He was wearing blue jeans and a green shirt, and has been associated with a dark-blue/green, older-model mini-van. “Even in a public place, it’s an invasion of privacy. We’re taking this very, very seriously,” Paquet said. Paquet urged anyone with information to call police at 604-599-0502.

White Rock’s mayor had a few choice words to share at Friday’s opening of the city’s first official dog park. “Woof,” Wayne Baldwin said with a grin, as he welcomed about 10 dogs and their respective owners to the new facility. Created in Ruth Johnson Park (14600 North Bluff Rd.), between the Mel Edwards building and the playground, the off-leash site was determined through consultation with interested parties, including some who have lobbied the city for such a facility for months. Amenities of the 37,000-squarefoot fenced ❝It’s just park include a doggy-bag wonderful.❞ dispenser and Eva Hompoth a board where pet owner visitors can post messages. Eva Hompoth, who has been a vocal advocate of such a park, was among guests invited to share in the occasion Friday. “It’s just wonderful,” she told Peace Arch News of what the city created. Baldwin predicted the park will be “a big hit.” “This works really well – the dogs seem to really enjoy it, and hopefully we all will, too.” The park is estimated to cost the city $20,000-25,000. – Tracy Holmes & Nick Greenizan

Worksafe BC indicates procedures were not followed

City crew cited for gas-leak evacuation Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

A WorkSafe BC investigation of a South Surrey gas leak that forced the evacuation of dozens of homes and businesses on July 30 has found a City of Surrey crew at fault. The crew was digging up the intersection of 24 Avenue and 160 Street to cap an old unused water line when their backhoe severed a four-inch natural gas line. A written report by WorkSafe investigator Ronald Schouten released to Peace Arch News last week says the crew had a map that showed eight-inch and four-inch gas lines running near the water pipe. Using an electronic detector, the workers were able to precisely locate the bigger gas line, but they had difficulty locating the smaller one, the report states. “(After locating the larger gas line, the

crew) then attempted to locate the south 4” gas main but could not get a proper locate reading from the scope in the area to be excavated,” the Schouten report says. “They were successful in getting a scope reading of the 4” gas main farther to the south, several feet away from the excavation location, and marked the pavement accordingly.” The report goes on to say the workers followed safety procedures by using a backhoe to remove the pavement and first 12 inches of top soil before digging down to the water main by hand. When they excavated around the water line, the crew didn’t find the gas line. Buy when one worker used the backhoe to remove soil from the side of the excavation, he hit the still-buried gas line. That, the report said, was a violation of safety regulations that require the relocation

of all underground utilities to be “accurately determined” before excavating or drilling with power tools. “The safe work procedures by the employer were not adhered to by the crew despite having received training in these procedures,” the report says. An “order to workers” has been issued, meaning one or more members of the crew have been cited for failing to follow regulations and directed to take steps to make sure the mistake is not repeated. Vincent Lalonde, Surrey’s general manager of engineering, said the city is using the incident to “reinforce” the need to follow safety rules and the worker who operated the backhoe is “participating in helping us educate other workers.” Lalonde said he could not discuss any possible punishment of the city employee owing

to privacy regulations. “The important thing is that we’re learning from this,” Lalonde said. The 1:45 p.m. gas line break led to the evacuation of the immediate area, including Peace Arch News offices. As the day progressed, the evacuation was expanded to include most of the businesses in the 50-acre Grandview Corners shopping district on both sides of 24 Avenue, as well as some residential homes on the fringe of the business area. It took about four hours to stop the gas leak and restore service. Power to the area was cut off as a safety precaution to allow inspections of affected businesses to make sure there were no lingering pockets of gas. Electricity was restored shortly after 6 p.m. There were no reported injuries.

Guest registry concern

City lifts motel’s licence Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The City of Surrey has revoked the business licence of the Motel Bollywood in Newton after several alleged “chronic” bylaw infractions. The city’s bylaw department mailed a notice of business licence cancellation to the Motel Bollywood at 6670 King George Blvd., giving it 30 days to shut down, Black Press has learned. Philip Huynh, Surrey’s assistant city solicitor, confirmed Thursday that the business licence has been cancelled and said the 30 days’ notice gives long-term motel guests a chance to find other accommodation. One of the main reasons for the cancellation, Huynh said, was an alleged failure to maintain the guest registry according to the business licence bylaw. “(There were) Kevin Diakiw photo continued fire Notice given. safety hazards observed by the fire department,” Huynh said. “Also violations of the Surrey property unsightly premises bylaw.” He said that between January 2011 and July 2012, there were 10 inspections that found violations of the business licence bylaw. “Fire safety hazards were noted on… seven occasions,” during that same period, Huynh said.  “It’s the bylaw (department’s) position that the violation of the business licence bylaw has been repeated and chronic,” Huynh said.  Contacted by Black Press, the owner of the motel did not want to comment. The owner has a right to appeal the business licence cancellation before council on Dec. 3.

Board of trade lauds 16 Avenue pick Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

A South Surrey highway interchange that lets drivers transfer from Highway 99 to 16 Avenue will provide a much-needed link to the Abbotsford International Airport and reduce commercial traffic congestion, the CEO of the 3,600-member Surrey Board of Trade says. Anita Huberman was reacting to news that the province, city and TransLink have agreed to jointly fund $2-million worth of design work on a four-way exchange. “It serves a regional purpose of connecting to the Abbotsford Airport, which functions as Surrey’s airport,” Huberman told Peace Arch News Thursday. Earlier in the week, Cliff Annable, executive director of the South Surrey White Rock Chamber of Commerce, had expressed disappointment that the 16 Avenue exchange was given priority over 24 Avenue – another South Surrey site that for several years has been earmarked for an interchange, and which now

About a dozen people attended a TransLink community dialogue meeting in White Rock in a meeting room at the curling arena in Centennial Park last Tuesday. The meeting, which was not open to media, was part of a consultation process to develop a three-year plan for public transit in Metro Vancouver that was announced last month at a briefing for reporters by TransLink. Among the questions on a seven-page questionnaire distributed at the White Rock round table were a number that asked participants to rank their reaction to several proposed TransLink cost-cutting measures. It used a scale that ranged from “very concerned” to “somewhat concerned,” “not very concerned,” “not at all concerned” and “not sure” to comment on a variety of proposals that could reduce quality of service, the document warned. One question in the series noted that tightening schedules to reduce the amount of spare time between when a bus arrives and when it leaves could mean a

Order issued Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A boom bucket that caught fire last month, prompting a worker to jump 20 feet to save himself, must be proven repaired and safe for future use before it can be returned to service. The order to RS Line Construction was issued Sept. 13 by a WorkSafeBC investigator, in connection with a Sept. 11 incident in South Surrey that injured a 29-year-old man. The worker suffered a broken wrist and other non-life-threatening injuries that afternoon when he jumped from a boom bucket after it burst into flames. The incident occurred at the corner of 3A Avenue and 171 Street just before 2 p.m. According to the WorkSafeBC inspection report, sparks from a gas-powered concrete saw the worker was using to cut into a utility pole ignited fuel that had spilled in the bucket during refueling. The bucket’s plastic liner then caught fire, prompting the worker to unhook himself and jump to the pavement below.

on weekend. Other questions ask participants to comment on the proposed move to charge for parking at all TransLink park-andride lots, and reduction of bus frequency on so-called “lowdemand” routes. Groups invited to participate in the White Rock meeting included members of the Fraser Stoke Recovery Club and the Alzheimer’s Association.

Guilty plea in teen’s murder Sheila Reynolds Black Press

A young man accused of murdering North Delta teen Laura Szendrei two years ago admitted in court Thursday that he killed the 15-year-old. The accused, who was originally charged with first-degree murder, entered the surprise guilty plea to second-degree murder in Surrey Provincial Court on what was ❝Our reaction scheduled to be the last day is one of of his prelimirelief, more so nary hearing. for the family.

He was 17, just days away from his 18th birthday. Szendrei, a student at North Delta’s Burnsview Secondary, died from injuries sustained after a brazen daytime attack on a pathway in Mackie Park, near 110 Street and 82 Avenue, on Sept. 25, 2010. The accused was arrested and charged in February 2011. Shortly before the plea was entered, the judge had announced there was enough evidence to proceed to trial in B.C. Supreme

Court. While the plea spares family and friends of Szendrei the pain of going through a lengthy criminal trial, they were visibly shaken after hearing the admission from the man who killed their loved one.  Delta Police said the family was aware of the plea agreement and endorsed it, knowing that the Crown is seeking an adult sentence. Szendrei’s parents left the courthouse Thursday in tears and did not speak with media. Delta Police spokesman Const. Ciaran Feenan said that while the investigation was long and complex, police were committed to having someone held accountable for the teen’s murder. “Our reaction is one of relief,

more so for the family. We hope that this can bring them some closure. We hope that it gives closure to the entire community that was affected by this tragedy,” Feenan said. “It really was something that shocked the community to its very foundation.” He said the motive for the murder remains uncertain. Police had mounted an undercover operation to illicit a confession from the man. The ruse involved staging a video-game competition that eventually led the killer to be introduced to someone he was told was a powerful entertainment executive who could make the teen’s problems go away. The setup ended in a confession. The Crown has filed an application to have the young man sentenced as an adult. If that happens, his name can be made public. As well, if raised to adult court, he would receive an automatic life sentence and wouldn’t be able to apply for parole for up to seven years. A youth sentence for seconddegree murder is a maximum of seven years, only four of which can be served in custody. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for Feb. 18-21 in Surrey. - with files from CBC

Elections aren’t theirs to change

A

t least one of the election gag laws has been thrown out. The B.C. Court of Appeal has decided that an attempt by the provincial government to control free speech in the period before a provincial election isn’t constitutional. This after the government tried several times to restrict how much money third parties can spend in the 60-day window before an election campaign officially begins. An attempt by Victoria to cut that down to 40 days didn’t work either. Governments and political parties have interfered in the election process far too much. Elections are not the property of politicians – they are the property of citizens. They are the one chance that citizens have to determine who is in power, what policies will be brought in and what changes can be worked towards. Yet at the federal and provincial level, election spending has been restricted for years. Not only are individual candidates restricted in their spending, which does at least level the playing field a bit, but individuals, businesses, unions and interest groups have severe restrictions on how much they can spend to send messages to voters. This is what the province was trying to do in the pre-election period – mainly to cut off messages from anti-government groups. The BC Liberals were aiming at the BC Government Employees Union and the BC Teachers Federation, who ran pungent anti-government messages before the 2009 election officially began. Individuals, organizations and  businesses should have every right to spend money before and during campaigns. Much is being said at present about the 25th anniversary of free trade. The 1988 federal election was fought on that issue. During it, both pro- and anti-free trade organizations spent a lot of money to get their messages out. It was a hard-fought election, on one big issue, and the additional messages from all the third parties were an integral part of the debate. It’s good that the Court of Appeal has struck down restrictions during the pre-election period. It would be nice if a court would strike down the restrictions which apply during federal and provincial elections as well. The only purpose they serve is to keep the election process dominated by political parties, and to severely restrict the rights of citizens during what should be a free-ranging debate.

second year. And when Dix touts Alberta’s “mandatory” trade system, Hochstein said he means returning to a system where all work is restricted to journeymen or registered apprentices of that trade. “What it does is impose union jurisdiction on the training system of the entire construction industry,” Hochstein said. “So multi-skilling, multi-tasking, organizing the work in the most efficient way is blown out of the water, and it’s stuck in the old craft system of training.” The marketplace has spoken on that restrictive system, he said, and unionized construction is down to about five per cent of the market, based on payroll. Hochstein said the NDP talks a great game about getting more young people into trades. But when unions have the upper hand, they will always favour seniority. A quota of two apprentices per journeyman means another one can’t be hired. Dix agreed with me that the public school system has over-emphasized university, to the detriment of not just industrial trades but lab techs, chefs and other skilled workers that are in short supply.  As BC Federation of Labour president Jim Sinclair recently noted, tradesmen themselves often don’t encourage their kids, because they’ve been told all their lives that they are “tool monkeys” in a dead-end job. And would NDP student grants be targeted to need? Dix’s answer was a definite maybe.

Homelessness An odd way requires action to ‘go green’ Editor: This week, across the province, is the seventh annual Homeless Action Week. Here in White Rock South/Surrey, the week is marked by community groups continuing to provide needed services and supports for people who struggle with insecure housing and homelessness. Homelessness is present in our affluent community. We know up to 10 people per month call the 211 service looking for emergency shelter. While we have no emergency shelter and no specific shelter space for youth, we do have community groups stepping up to do what they can. Last winter, First United Church, working with Hyland House, BC Housing and 27 community volunteers, opened its doors to provide shelter for 64 nights during extreme weather. One evening, 12 people sought shelter at the church. It’s been said the solution to homelessness isn’t ‘only’ about housing; it is ‘always’ about housing. On July 29, 2011, White Rock and Surrey council representatives to Metro Vancouver voted to support Shaping Our Future: Regional Growth Strategy (RGS). This document estimates that over the next 10 years, the City of White Rock will need 600 additional units of rental housing, including 100 at-market rents, 300 for moderate incomes and 200 for low income. During his Sept. 13 state-of-thecity address, White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin spoke about a new Town Centre urban design plan, a new zoning bylaw and a new amenity contribution policy. The mayor said: “Through the amenity-contribution policy, developers will only be able to increase height above three storeys … if they make significant financial contributions for the benefit of our community.” The best way to mark Homeless Action Week is by taking action to benefit our community. An action White Rock council can take is to include affordablehousing targets within the new amenity-contribution policy and the Town Centre urban design plan. To further develop responses to our housing issues, council could invite the Affordable Housing Committee, which was so helpful in developing the city’s Draft Affordable Housing Strategy, to reconvene to support work on affordable-housing policy.

Editor: Open house or done deal? The City of Surrey invited residents of Ocean Park to a public open house Sept. 27 at Bayridge Elementary, in order to provide feedback on Kwomais Point Park and view the plans for road works at 128 Street and Marine Drive. Representatives from parks and engineering departments presented their plans, along with displays. The parks department also provided an update on the 2008 master plan and looked for feedback on the implementation of that plan to date. After presentations, the attending public were invited to add input. On the surface all sounds good, however many underlying concerns came to light and were questioned. To itemize a few: • More trees to be cut down along 128 Street and in Kwomais Point

Park • Additional access roads and additional parking lot in the park • Additional fencing in the park for possible off-leash dog-run area • Traffic lights, speed bumps and/ or crosswalk at intersection 128 Street and Marine Drive. • Why was the open house held outside of the Ocean Park community area? • How open and transparent is the City of Surrey in presenting the open house? The Ocean Park community is growing; that is a fact. Traffic control and pedestrian safety is a concern; that, too, is a fact. What is not fact – an absolute – is how we go about handling these changes. The master plan adopted in 2008 is just that, a plan. Plans can be changed. Amendments can be made to what was adopted. The City of Surrey states it’s “going green.” Then why is more of paradise cut down to put up a parking lot? Rosemarie Oldale, Surrey

Accountability is paramount Editor: Re: Developer penalized $175,000 for trees, Oct. 4. Developer Paul Bal should be thanking his lucky stars the penalty imposed for unlawful removal of trees was not more severe. The bulk of the $175,000 penalty – approximately $150,000 – is a security deposit that will presumably be returned to him on completion of the mandated restoration work. At today’s low interest rates, the cost of tying up $150,000 for three years will be minimal. So in reality, the penalty is the $25,400 fine and a few thousand dollars in interest. Does anyone really believe this will act as a deterrent? As for whining about the “tens of thousands of dollars” the remedial work will cost, people who make mistakes must be accountable for their actions. Period. Bill Stewart, Surrey

The City of Surrey has been receiving lots of feedback on its new garbage-collection system that began last week.

A little trash and a little treasure

Editor: The propaganda that the City of Surrey is sending to our houses to the tune of thousands of dollars leads us to believe that the new garbage system will save the planet for our future generations. The only difference in the new giant bins is the organic waste. We were already successfully recycling. Organic waste only takes days to disappear at the landfills if you look at the number of seagulls and eagles there, not to mention the four-legged animals all chowing down. The day our children and our children’s children stop using disposable diapers – which take 40 years to disintegrate – is the day I will keep a pail of rotting food under my kitchen sink. D. Rollinson, Surrey n One more opinion on the City of Surrey’s garbage-can debacle. We received the information a few months ago about the change to new garbage cans. I went to the Ocean Park Library to check on the size of the container and decided I needed the smaller bins. So I dutifully sent my request to city hall straight away. About three weeks ago, my neighbours received their “monster cans.” Upon my question to the delivery personnel, I was told that the smaller bins were being distributed separately. Why? They couldn’t tell. Last week, I phoned city hall twice to inquire about the bins I requested. The persons I spoke to were not

able to tell me when I could expect the new garbage cans. As I write this letter – the night before the new system begins – I still don’t have the bins delivered. What is going on at city hall? Surely they have all the pertinent information as to how many people to a household. I am the only occupant at my address; my next door neighbour also is a single occupant but got the “monster cans.” I just wonder how much longer it will take to sort things out. Typical bureaucracy at work without any input from taxpaying citizens. Gerda Barwieck, Surrey n An open letter to Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts. This is a sincere thank you for the fast response to my two earlier emails about the recent change in Surrey’s garbage collection. Yesterday, I asked for an immediate replacement of the new garbage carts, and you must have made sure that this happened. This afternoon, I drove home and found all three carts being replaced as requested. This is an incredible level of responsiveness to a request from one of your supporters. Please share my appreciation with your assistant and the engineering team who all reacted so quickly. Once again, thank you. Herbert Spencer, Surrey

Marine Drive project receives final reading from council

Development moves forward Tracy Holmes

A major development project for White Rock’s waterfront that was stymied by a split vote over the summer is moving ahead. Council voted unanimously last week to give final reading to a bylaw amendment that facilitates the construction of a commercial/residential project on three lots in the 15500-block of Marine Drive. The vote cleared the way for approval of the related development permit, which also passed unopposed. The project was one of two that had been stopped in its tracks in July, when council voted 3-3 against moving them forward (see story below). Following the split vote, Tatla Developments tweaked its Marine Drive plans to respond to council concerns around access to underground parking and treatment of the building’s rear wall. There was no change proposed for the number of units planned – 10 residential and one commercial. To address safety concerns due to the parking access being

One of two major projects in White Rock that was given new life – after a split vote stopped it in its tracks – is on hold once again. Planning director Paul Stanton confirmed last week that new owners of lots on Finlay Street – initially eyed for a 20-unit townhouse project – requested that a public hearing scheduled for Oct. 1 be pulled from the city’s agenda. “Until we get further direction, all we have right now is they didn’t want to go ahead with the public hearing,” Stanton said. At least two people who turned up for the hearing were visibly upset by the lastminute cancellation. The proposal had been the source of angst for some. At a public hearing in July, concerns cited included its densityand the impact on traffic. On July 23, council voted 3-3 against moving it forward. It was revived last month following a motion by Coun. Larry Robinson, who initially opposed the project, after Stanton outlined errors found in the proposed bylaw and noted minor revisions that “warrant reconsideration.”

is concerned that if amendments continue to be granted, that “in another 15 years we’re going to have highrises on Marine Drive.” Public hearings, Shah added, are “a waste of time.” “Citizens have complained again and again that we don’t want to go through this process.” Cliff Armstrong, who lives behind the proposed site, also expressed concern with the impact to views, along with the uncertainty created by allowing the city’s guidelines to be amended. “Homeowners expect to be able to rely on those rules,” he said. The development, Armstrong added, “wouldn’t flow well with what’s there.” Tatla Developments’ Kuldeep Tatla defended the project, saying improvements to the laneway will make the area more accessible, including to emergency crews. He reiterated Stanton’s note that the height is below zoning limits. Project architect David Danyluck agreed. “The height as far as we’re concerned is not an issue,” Danyluck said.

Helen Fathers and Louise Hutchinson – the applicants adjusted the plan to recess the garage door and provide an amber light that will flash whenever the door openst. “Every time the door goes to open… there’ll be an amber flashing light to warn pedestrians,” said Paul Stanton, the city’s director of planning and development services. New landscaping, windows and a green roof are among changes proposed for the project’s rear wall. Stanton also noted the project height is lower that what is allowed. While no one spoke at the first public hearing, held July 16, a number of area residents stood to express concerns at a second opportunity, held Sept. 17. View loss and the impact to how Marine Drive looks were key issues raised. Development should stay within existing guidelines, said Moti Bali. “People want to take an inch to get a yard,” he said. “It’s like buying shorts to get a trouser.” Aroon Shah agreed, adding he

Neighbours speak out against application

‘No duplexes in White Rock’ Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

A handful of residents opposed to having duplexes in their neighbourhood made their views known during a public hearing at White Rock city hall last week. The meeting was scheduled in connection with an application to construct a duplex at 13742 North Bluff Rd. In voicing opposition, Richard Andres, who lives four houses down from the property, cited a previous application for a duplex in the neighbourhood that was denied. “We went through this eight

years ago. We managed to put it down because these are all singlefamily homes. And the house, being as tall as it’s going to be – I believe it’s going to be 28 feet – with a flat roof is just ludicrous to me,” he said. “It does not fit into the neighbourhood at all. “It’s a duplex now, but with three floors of living area, how long until it becomes a fourplex?” For North Bluff Road resident Jim Whyte, the main concern revolved around the location of the driveway, which he said may result in the relocation of a bus stop. “We don’t feel that’s fair for our-

selves or for any other property owner that has been there for many, many years,” he said. The most common complaint amongst those who spoke out was that the duplex would not fit into their neighbourhood, which is predominantly comprised of single-family homes. “Duplexes are for Surrey. White Rock is for single-family dwellings,” Andres said. In total, four neighbours spoke against the proposal at the hearing; the city received one written submission opposing the project. It’s due back for a final decision on Oct. 29.

Canadians buying flights south of the border

Cheap U.S. fares lure Jeff Nagel Black Press

A

’ ERS CHO D

E

2011

IC

RE

Flights out of U.S. airports like Bellingham are about 30 per cent cheaper than in Canada, due to a combination of higher costs, taxes and fees north of the border. That’s one of the findings in a report by the Conference Board of Canada that analyzes the reasons behind the price gap. Report author Vijay Gill estimates five million Canadians cross the U.S. border each year to catch cheaper flights. There’s no single reason behind the price gap, but Gill concludes some of the biggest factors are lower leasing and depreciation costs for U.S. carriers, lower airport landing and terminal

fees and lower fuel costs. Navigational fees account for another chunk, because Nav Canada is fully funded by fees, while U.S. authorities partly subsidize those costs. Also, more discount carriers in the U.S. pay lower wages than Canadian carriers and compete aggressively on price. Canadian fees and taxes add up to roughly 40 per cent of the total airfare difference between the U.S. and Canadian airports Gill examined. The report suggests a cut to fees charged in Canada could win back some cross-border fliers. Transport Canada said the user-pay model here is designed to ensure other taxpayers don’t subsidize flights.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Lorraine Ellenwood received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal

Staff Reporters

he City of White Rock has honoured a longtime community treasure. Lorraine Ellenwood, director emeritus of the White Rock Museum and Archives, was presented the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal by Mayor Wayne Baldwin in a brief ceremony during the city council meeting Monday. The Canadian version of the medal, given by local governments on behalf of the Queen, celebrates the jubilee by honouring Canadian citizens and permanent residents who have made a significant contribution to their community and the country over the last 60 years. Some 60,000 Canadians will be awarded the medal this year. Baldwin said that while being allotted only one medal to give to a notable White Rock resident was the cause of some “soulsearching,” Ellenwood’s record of volunteer work, particularly in preserving White Rock’s history, was “clearly beyond the call of duty.” “I can tell you, unequivocally, that if it had not been for Lorraine, we would not have a museum today,” Baldwin said. “It was a work of love for her, but it was a lot of work that took her away from her family. It’s something the city should truly be grateful for.” Ellenwood came to White Rock from Montreal in 1975, with husband Don and sons David and Hugh (now White Rock archivist and, alongside his mother, the Peace Arch News ‘Historical Perspectives’ columnist). Ellenwood became a member of the White Rock Historical Society shortly after she arrived. She spent years as a volunteer archivist with the museum, taking over as curator in 1983 and becoming its first executive director in 1986. Baldwin noted that Ellenwood also shepherded the museum through the difficult period in

the 1990s, in which its collection lost its home when the federal government sold the former post office building in which it had been housed. “Lorraine kept it all together,” he said. Ellenwood subsequently supervised the museum’s transition to a new home in the former BNSF station building with a new board and mandate. Baldwin also paid tribute to Ellenwood’s volunteer work helping those with dyslexia, the Semiahmoo Swim Club and the Peninsula Arts Foundation – and her essential history of White Rock’s pre-incorporation period, Years Of Promise – 1858-1958, which, he noted, she did without remuneration. “Lorraine has done a lot that doesn’t get picked up,” he said. In accepting the medal last week, Ellenwood thanked those she has worked with over the years for their “energies and dedication” and also White Rock council members. “I’m grateful,” she said. “This proves that you have thought White Rock heritage is worth preserving.” Ellenwood told Peace Arch News Wednesday that she is honoured to be selected for the medal, considering “White Rock is a hotbed of community volunteers.” “One of the chief honours is to be thought of among such an elite group who are active in so many ways and talented in so many directions.” The medal will join her already extensive collection of royal memorabilia, she said, adding it reminds her of a George V Silver Jubilee medal from 1935 that a friend found for her in England years ago. But, with typical dry humour, she quipped that she may have to return a Diamond Jubilee plate she purchased in Harrods during a stopover in London earlier this year. “I now have this as my souvenir,” she said.

If you have been appointed executor of an estate, there are various things you can and must do. Consulting with a lawyer early in the administration process is important. In most cases, executors will have to apply to obtain a grant of probate from the BC Supreme Court before they can administer the estate. A grant of probate is a court order confirming the validity of the deceased’s Will and your appointment as executor. A grant of probate is not required in all cases, but will be required where: (1) the deceased held property alone at a third party institution such as the Land Title Office or bank, and that institution is requiring that a grant be obtained; (2) there is a possibility that a Wills Variation Act claim may be advanced; (3) the validity of the Will is in question (e.g. someone is challenging the will-maker’s capacity at the time the Will was signed) The process of applying for a grant is technical, and requirements imposed by various pieces of legislation must be met. In addition to these requirements, executors are exposed to potential personal liability under the Income Tax Act and the creditors of a deceased. Retaining a lawyer to guide you through the process of estate administration can help you perform your duties with greater efficiency, as well as provide you with protection from personal liability. We assist executors by preparing the legal documents needed to apply for the grant of probate. In addition, we: • Advise you of your legal obligations • Assist with the transfer of assets into your name as executor; • Assist you with preparing your executor’s accounts and obtain releases from beneficiaries; • Publish a notice to creditors; • Assist you in responding to any claims against the estate • Take steps to protect you from liability. Legal fees incurred by the executor are generally considered a proper expense and may be paid out of the estate funds. If you have been appointed executor of an estate, or if you have any questions about the above, please contact Kim Karras or Kirsten Wharton at BRAWN KARRAS & SANDERSON 604-542-5344 or by email at kakarras@bkslaw.com or kwharton@bkslaw. com.

Join the run for your ER. For all your very important reasons.

Why run for your ER? Back in April, my four grandsons, aged 12 to 16, joined me in presenting a video message for the Foundation’s annual Gala and website, highlighting the importance of the ER to our community. Each of the boys shared their first-hand experiences with the ER. My message to the viewer reminded everyone that you never know when you will need Graham Cameron, Chair of Peace Arch Hospital and Community Foundation the ER. is flanked by his four grandsons, Cameron, Brayden, Rhys and Drew. Twenty four hours after the video’s Gala premiere, Cameron (15), our second oldest grandson, was in the ER receiving treatments for scalding water inadvertently spilled on him while working part time at a local restaurant on Mother’s Day. Six weeks later, Brayden (16), our oldest grandson was in ER with a temperature over 106 degrees. In early July, Drew (12), our youngest grandson broke his leg in three places and also landed in the ER. All received excellent care and have recovered quite nicely! You can understand why our family wants to see the ER expanded! Our excellent medical professionals do a fantastic job treating over 42,000 patients in an ER designed for 20,000 annual visits. My wife Darlene and I, with family and friends, have participated in the Great Pumpkin Run/Walk for the last three years. The event offers a great cause - to raise money for our community health. Also, the walk is a lot of fun, with lots of activities, and a great time to connect with friends and neighbours. Please join us – register, collect pledges, and walk or run with us on Sunday October 21st.

Did you know that your diet accounts for about 75% of your fitness level? To optimize your diet for a distance run or walk, choose whole foods over bars, supplements and sport drinks for optimal health and performance. What you eat impacts your motivation, performance and recovery - so make sure you meet your energy, carbohydrate, protein and fat needs. Before a workout or run, fuel your body with enough energy from nutrient dense foods, and always keep well hydrated. Energy boosting drinks like Yerba Mate - which helps to increase mental focus - green tea, or pure fruit juice diluted with equal parts of water are some choices. The best fuels for athletes and runners are complex carbohydrates, along with good quality protein and fats. If you are running in this year’s 5K Run/Walk, you can prepare by enjoying a breakfast rich in easily digested carbohydrates about an hour before the run. The soluble fibre in steel cut oats porridge will provide sufficient fuel throughout the run, while a sprouted whole grain bagel or bread topped with berries and coconut butter - an immediate fuel source - are great choices. Get your children involved by giving them a muffin made with rolled oats and apples or pumpkin puree. Within 30 minutes after a run, help the body refuel and recover with a snack or meal high in carbohydrates (whole grain pasta and breads, yams, dates are great choices) and some protein (salmon, legumes, quinoa, eggs). Enjoy a smoothie made with plain yogurt, bananas or vegetables. Hemp seeds are a great addition to your smoothie ¨C which are high in protein. Coconut water is a great way to replenish fluid levels and electrolytes. Colorful, antioxidant rich vegetables will also help heal the body. Omega-3 rich savi seeds to help reduce inflammation and improve lubrication of joints following a brisk run.

Vasi Naidoo, BSc.RHN, Nutrition Consultant at the South Surrey location of Choices Markets, believes that a solid foundation of proper nutrition, along with an exercise program that promotes physical and mental well-being, will lead to optimal health. Do you have a question for her? Find her on Mondays and Wednesdays at our local Choices Markets (3248 King George Blvd.) or sign up for a complimentary Healthy Eating or Gluten Free Store Tour by visiting the Customer Service desk at the store.

While taking in the sights, sounds and smells of a fresh Fall morning, and enjoying a brisk family walk or run, remind yourself of the countless benefits of nurturing the soul and nourishing the body. Good luck participating in this year’s Run/Walk!

Les Pike celebrates his 100th birthday with family and friends

Marking another milestone Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

Arthur Leslie Pike can take pride in a lot of accomplishments. The South Surrey resident – known as Les to friends and family – has a memory as sharp as a tack, was married to wife, Anne, for more than six decades and was a member of the Royal Navy in England for 5½ years. But today (Tuesday), Pike can add another note to his list of bragging rights – it’s his 100th birthday. Pike is the oldest resident at his home of six years, the Royale Peninsula retirement

residence. Pike can’t say off the top of his head what has been his most memorable experience in the last century, but he can say exactly how he met his wife. “We were at a dancing session at the local hotel,” he said, surrounded by family at the residence. “We married on Nov. 1, 1941.” The couple, who were married for 64 years until Anne’s death, moved from their native home of Birmingham, England to Canada in 1946 with their threeyear-old son, John. In 1953, son Roger was born in Vancouver.

Little Shop of Horrors Those who missed Little Shop of Horrors during its Coast Capital Playhouse run this summer – or those who want a second helping – still have a chance to catch the locally-grown favourite, featuring White Rock’s Kerry O’Donovan, opening tonight (Oct. 9) at Vancouver’s Jericho Arts Centre and running until Oct. 27. Directed by White Rock Players Club board member Ryan Mooney (Nunsense, Lend Me A Tenor) and presented by his Fighting Chance Productions, the popular Alan Menken-Howard Ashman musical concerns a flower shop just off skid-row – and Audrey II, the rapidly-growing, bloodthirsty plant from outer space nurtured by assistant florist Seymour Krelbourn. O’Donovan (a noted pianistsinger and musical director for Vancouver professional productions) offers a winning characterization as Seymour, while newcomer Melissa Clark delivers a touching, star-making turn as Audrey, Seymour’s co-worker and major crush. For tickets, visit www. jerichoartscentre.com or 604-2248007.

Who Walks In The Dark Just in time for Halloween, White Rock Players Club offers a thriller involving a re-animated Egyptian mummy and a jewel with an ancient curse. Who Walks In The Dark opens tomorrow night (Oct. 10, 8 p.m.) at Coast Capital Playhouse, running until Oct. 27. It’s an adaptation by late playwright Tim Kelly of the 1903 novel The Jewel of Seven Stars, written by Dracula author Bram Stoker. Helming the occult period piece is renowned actor/director Paul Kloegman (Humble Boy, Ladies of the Camellias), last seen at Coast Capital as a member of the cast of Peninsula Productions’ successful The Mousetrap, and soon to be seen in a featured double role in She Stoops To Conquer at the Arts Club’s Stanley Theatre for director Dean Paul Gibson.

Ken Fynn as Sir Abel and Deborah Spitz as Nurse Kennedy in White Rock Players Club’s Who Walks In The Dark which is running at the Coast Capital Playhouse until Oct. 27. The play is an adaptation by late playwright Tim Kelly of Bram Stoker’s The Jewel of Seven Stars.

Sir Abel Trelawney (Ken Fynn), a distinguished archeologist who has unwittingly broken into the Egyptian tomb of an evil sorceress. Murderous havoc ensues, involving Sir Abel’s daughters Margaret (Alexandra Wilson) and Judith (Krystle Hadlow), his housekeeper, Mrs. Grant (Heather Harris), Nurse Kennedy (Deborah Spitz), Egyptian servant Suleiman (Ryan Johnston) and colleague (and Judith’s fiance) Christopher Ross (Keaton Mazurek). Also caught up in the deadpan, over-the-top melodramatics: serious Doctor Winchester (David Lloyd Austin), Romanian thief Tessie (Jane Mantle) and comedic policeman Sgt. Daw, who’s clearly read too many accounts of Sherlock Holmes’ cases (Bryce Mills) and a lady known as Tera (Tessa Milne). Shows run Wednesday to Saturday at 8 p.m. at the theatre (1532 Johnston Rd.), with a gala night Oct. 12 and 2:30 p.m. matinee Oct. 21.

For tickets ($18) and information, call 604-536-7535, or visit www. whiterockplayers.ca

Her debut album showcased her original take on jazz, blending traditional forms with her own conversational lyrics and entertaining theatrical style. Recipient of the 2009 CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award from the Vancouver International Jazz

Festival, Guillou has won raves touring throughout Europe, the U.S. and Canada, including soldout shows at New York’s Birdland and the Yardbird Suite and, closer to home, Corey Weeds’ Cellar Jazz Club. Tickets are available at Tapestry music, and online from tickets. surrey.ca

Gateway Theatre / Richmond Review 10.333 x 3” / BW / 17 September 2012

(formerly Camp Kwomais) in Ocean Park. A special event called INvision, this Saturday (Oct. 13) at 7 p.m. at Sanford Hall, will feature three sets of original live art, improvised and scripted pieces involving sound, image movement and words. Participants include dancers from Diskordanse, Corbin Keep (the Wild Cellist), Rhythm Wellness percussionists Billy Knutson and Jane Baker, visual artists Elizabeth Carefoot and Claire Moore, actor/ playwrights Rosie Miller and Harvey Ostroff, and wordsmiths Heidi Greco and Virginia Gillespie. Gillespie, also director of the event, said the impulse inspiring the celebration is “the metaphor of labyrinth as a journey of discovery.” “Not only is this a celebration of place, and the making of the Eagle’s Nest labyrinth, but also art-making that comes through mixing forms and visions,” she said. The wheelchair-accessible labyrinth is being constructed by the City of Surrey in partnership with the Labyrinths of Hope Society and the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society.

J.W. Jones Canada’s top touring bluesman, J.W. Jones, headlines for the White Rock Blues Society this Saturday (Oct. 13) in the Rhumba Room at the Pacific Inn Resort (1160 King George Blvd., doors at 7:30 p.m.). Touring B.C. with a fresh new album, Seventh Hour, which combines traditional blues, rhythm and blues, and even a little country with a contemporary edge, Jones will display the chops that have made veteran blues promoters sit up and take notice, and have won him a new contract with a muchprized entrée into the U.S. market. Jones, who’s old school enough to want to wear dress shirts and ties on his gigs, is noted not just for vocals, but also for the guitar licks that have placed him on a Guitar World Magazine compilation – Guitar Masters Vol. 2 – along with such legends as B.B. King, Jimmy Page and Carlos Santana. Tickets ($20) are available at Tapestry Music, Surfside Music and online at http://tickets.surrey. ca For more information, call 604542-6515.

Nearly half of team’s roster hails from Valley West midget squad

Major Hawk infusion in Eagles’ lineup Nick Greenizan

N

Sports Reporter

ot so long ago, nearly half the players on the Surrey Eagles’ roster were birds of a slightly different feather – those of a hawk. A Valley West Hawk, to be more precise. And while it’s common for Eagles’ rosters to feature a few locals each year, this season has more than ever – including eight former Valley West Hawks, the BC Major Midget League team that includes players from Surrey, Langley, Cloverdale and White Rock. Eagles’ veterans Colton Mackie and Michael Stenerson, who both suited up for the Hawks four seasons ago, are the oldest players with ties to the MML squad, while other alums include goaltender Glenn Ferguson, Mason Blacklock,

Jordan Klimek, Austen Bietenbeck, Kevan Kilistoff and Stefan Burzan. A ninth Eagle, rookie forward Joel Gaudet, is also a local product, having come up from the Semiahmoo Ravens’ midget A team. And while the goal of any BC Hockey League team is to ice the best team – regardless of where the players come from – Eagles’ head coach/GM Matt Erhart said, when possible, they go with local talent. “I think going with local guys makes sense in a lot of ways, and if we’re able to do it, we always try to,” he said. “The (major midget) teams here, and teams like the Hawks… they’ve developed some real quality players.” Other Eagles, including defenceman Devon Toews and Kolten Grieve, have played with other BC MML teams, and Erhart guesses

“at least three-quarters of (BCHL) players have played in that league at some point, if they’re from B.C.” “There’s a connection there. With our schedule, we’re always really busy, but with the midgets playing on weekends, it’s a natural for me to go out during the day before our own games, to watch them play in the afternoon,” the coach explained. “That way I get to know them,

and get to watch them six or seven times a season, instead of just once or twice.” The Valley West squad has had a number of coaches in recent years – Tom Spencer has been at the helm the last two – but regardless of who is behind the bench, players agree the team, and the league, is a perfect stepping stone between minor hockey and the junior ranks. “Major midget, it does prepare you very well. It gives you the experience of travelling with your team on a bus, going on road trips, staying in hotels – it gives you an idea of what (junior hockey) is all about,” said Mackie. Erhart, a former major midget coach himself with the Greater Vancouver Canadians, said his relationships with MML coaches like Spencer help when bringing

midget players into the fold, either as full-timers or affiliate players. Though he’d seen them play in person plenty, two current Eagle rookies, Klimek and Bietenbeck, came highly recommended from Spencer. “Tom and I have a good relationship. He let’s me know when he’s got a guy I should be taking a look at. They keep me updated, give me access to their players if I need to talk to them. It helps having coaches on the same page as you,” Erhart said. On the other side of the coin, Spencer said he has no qualms about sending his players on to the Eagles – or other BCHL teams, for that matter. “Matt does a great job, and I have a lot of confidence in him. I know I’m sending my guys to a great program,” Spencer said.

Mens’ and womens’ soccer teams sit in third place

No wins for Kwantlen For the women, playing to a pair of draws with a seventhplace Douglas team was a disappointment to the Eagles. The Royals got the first goal Saturday after just 10 minutes to play, but Kwantlen replied with a goal from North Delta’s Cheley Lal from the penalty spot in the second half in what would be a 1-1 tie. Chelea Jewell, a Sands Secondary graduate, got her first start in goal Sunday in Coquitlam and earned a shutout in a scoreless tie with the Royals. With a 3-3-2 (won-tie-loss) record, the Eagles are a point back of the second-place Langara Falcons, and one ahead of the UBC-Okanagan Heat. Like the men, Kwantlen’s women’s team was at home twice on the weekend, playing UBCOkanagan Saturday, followed by a Sunday game against the first-place Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack.

Rick Kupchuk Black Press

For the first time this season, Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s two soccer teams were both winless. But both the men’s and women’s teams maintained a third place standings as the PACWEST season passed the halfway mark of the schedule. The Kwantlen Eagles men’s had a loss and a tie in two games against the first place Douglas Royals, and although they are now tied for third with the Langara Falcons they are still in a playoff position with six games to play. “(The past) weekend was Boaz Joseph photo another step in the learning Kwantlen’s Dominique Lang process of our young team,” said celebrates a goal with Kathleen head coach Ajit Braich, a South Gratz and Shanay Sangha Surrey resident. during a game Sept 22. “However, it has showed that at Newton Athletic Park, were we can compete with the best.” played after Peace Arch News’ Douglas and the Vancouver long-weekend deadlines.
