North Shore Change Makers Meet some unsung heroes dedicated to making positive changes locally — and globally

1

James Wilson, Obsession Bikes

Obsession Bikes owner James Wilson still remembers his first bike. He was around five years old. It was a hand-me-down, thick with coats of paint splashed on over the years. The frame was a little big and the tires a little bare, but it changed his world. Everything opened up. That’s why he passionately believes every kid should have bike — even if the family maybe can’t afford it. That’s why he started the Bikes for Tykes program eight years ago. Here’s how it works: Donors drop by used bikes to his Lower Lonsdale shop and his technicians fix them up and they are given to needy families in time for Christmas. And every year it seems more people are donating bikes, money and time to the project. Wilson donates around $3,500 in labour costs towards the project, but he’s not complaining. He’s happy to give back to the community and encourage others to do the same. “With regards to my business, it’s

the happiest I am,” he says of the bike program. “I couldn’t ask for more at Christmas.”

2

North Shore Arts Council guerrilla knitters

Something more permanent came out of a controversial yarnbombing project in North Vancouver. Re-using the multicoloured knitted patterns decorating trees around the city, volunteers with the North Van Arts Council made 30 scarves this November to donate to the North Shore Lookout Shelter. “The wild colours will cheer people up while keeping them from getting cold,” said volunteer Theresa James, a “guerrilla-knitter” who helped decorate a park in central Lonsdale this summer. The temporary art form, however, faced skepticism from North Van City council earlier this year. In February, the North Van Arts Council’s request for $7,500 to pay for knitting kits was denied, but later reversed in a 4-2 vote after council members had a change of heart.

Capilano U students raising awareness for homelessness

A small group of Capilano University students spent five days living in a doorway this March to raise awareness for homelessness. They asked for donations and time to talk about the issues from passersby and were given some wild weather to brave. Each student left the campaign a little different than when they arrived. The participants — Brandon Hofmarks, international business; Liam Park, arts and entertainment management; Dolly Reno, film studies; Sage Birley, global stewardship and Melanda Danenhower, also global stewardship — gained an idea of how easy it is suffer such a fate and how cold and lonely that life can be. Educating the public, they say, is one of the most important ways to combat homelessness.

North Van civilians and cops who made the streets safer

The passenger who’d just jumped into the back of his cab was breathing fast and kept saying “let’s go.” Cabbie Kuldeep Dosanj was about to turn on his fare meter when he looked into his mirror and saw two men in suits running down the street in hot pursuit. This was trouble, he thought to himself.

He tried to trap the passenger in his cab by hitting autolock, but the man escaped. A struggle ensued, with Dosanj and the two men in suits, who worked at a nearby bank, struggling to corral the man. Turns out the man they just held down until police arrived had just robbed the bank. Police later determined he’d robbed five banks in a span of two weeks. Dosanj and the two other bank employees Stanley Yee and Bardia Pourmalek were recently honoured by North Van RCMP for going out of their way to help the police and fellow citizens. Several RCMP officers, support staff and members of the North Vancouver Crime Prevention Society were also honoured. To see a complete list of those honoured, visit northshoreoutlook.com

ohammad Eslami began learning French at the age of 75. “You have to learn the grammar first, the vocabulary is easy,” says the 80-year-old. He makes almost daily visits to the public library, which he sees as an amazing resource. His preferred study spot is among the dictionaries where he has access to most of the languages in the world, including the ones he speaks – Persian, German, English and now French. To keep his mind sharp he memorizes a list of 500 words which he translates from English to Persian one week, and from Persian to English the next. Eslami’s motto is “if you can, help; if you can’t help, pray.” With that motto in mind he contributes his time as a volunteer at the North Shore Community Resources Seniors’ OneStop. In the last nine years he has completed numerous courses and programs–from mental health support programs to tax preparation– all to enhance his ability to support others. Judging from Eslami’s example, Ed Kry there’s no age limit for learning. He is proof that learning can be a lifelong activity – a source not only of new knowledge, but also of satisfaction and engagement with others. The way seniors learn, however, is a little different from the way they learned in their youth. Research shows that over the years the brain declines in its ability to perform certain tasks efficiently, though not everyone experiences those declines at the same time and to the same degree. Generally, processing and recalling information takes longer. Thinking becomes less flexible so it may take more effort to come up with different solutions to a problem, and the ability to filter out distractions also diminishes. Even though some capabilities wane, seniors gather a few mental resources over the years. They possess a bank of experience and knowledge that can be applied to new situations and that can help integrate new information – in unscientific terms it’s called wisdom. And while many seniors are worried about memory loss, it turns out capacity to learn continues throughout their entire lives. Many seniors choose to preserve mental sharpness through continuing education. So far there is no guaranteed way to prevent dementia, but there are a number of factors thought to keep the brain healthy and functioning its best. The Alzheimer’s Association recommends

maintaining an active social life, taking part in regular exercise, and consuming a low-fat diet with lots of fruits and vegetables. There is also some evidence that those with higher education have lower rates of dementia, or show symptoms later in life. Other evidence places more weight on genetic and early childhood factors. While there’s not much we can do about our DNA, we can do our best to stay mentally challenged – and learning is a great way to do that. Ed Kry, chair of Capilano University’s Eldercollege advisory board, has been taking courses at Capilano University for about 10 years. He points out that Eldercollege provides satisfying intellectual stimulation for adults 55 and over and brings participants together with other mature students. “You not only get insights into these courses, but…all of a sudden you get a whole new circle of friends with really interesting backgrounds,” he says. The cost for one Eldercollege course is $75 and that amount decreases with each additional course up to a maximum of $139 for an unlimited number of courses, with some exceptions. Eldercollege members also have access to the Capilano University library. Some bursaries are available. Eldercollege is having an open house on Jan. 12, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Capilano University Student Union Centre. Seniors on the North Shore also have access to educational opportunities through many of our local community and seniors’ centres. The North Shore Multicultural Society, Silver Harbour Centre and the West Vancouver Seniors Activity Centre all offer workshops and lectures, as do North Shore public libraries. The word is out that if we don’t want to lose our brainpower, we need to use it – but learning new things does more than keep the synapses firing. It keeps us involved with our community and helps us develop new skills that keep us engaged in life. Mohammad Eslami and Ed Kry are two seniors whose lives have been enriched in more ways than one by continuing education. Keep an eye out for the 2013 edition of the Seniors Directory which lists many local education programs, among many other resources and services. It will be available at The Outlook and North Shore Community Resources. Josie Padro is a writer/researcher for North Shore Community Resources, nscr.bc.ca.

Use it or lose it

Regular exercise is important no matter what your age ELIZABETH SHEWCHUK ConTrIBuTor

W

inter has arrived and the days are short and the weather often miserable. For many elderly seniors, it becomes difficult to maintain an exercise routine during this time of the year. But it is really important to remain active throughout the winter months and to find ways to cope with seasonal changes and adjust our exercise routines. Exercise has many benefits: Boosting energy levels, maintaining independence and helping to manage chronic pain and illness. A few other benefits include sleeping better, minimizing weight gain and keeping your brain in shape. So now that you know the benefits of exercising regularly, you can start any time. There is never a right age. If you are young or old, healthy or managing an illness, even if you have never exercised before, there are ways to incorporate simple exercise routines into your day and get great results almost immediately. Keep these suggestions in mind as you get started: 1) If you are unsure, ask your family medical doctor, who can discuss any concerns you may have. 2) Start slowly and build up. Make a goal that you want to achieve — three times per week is a good start. 3) Get a buddy to walk with you or go to a swim exercise class. It helps with accountability. You can even get a few buddies and make it part of a weekly routine. 4) Check with local community and senior centres. They may offer special classes that cater to seniors of all levels to help you estab-

lish a routine. 5) If you prefer walking indoors, go to a mall and walk briskly for 20 minutes. Early in the morning is best because there are less people. 6) Get an exercise DVD. You can follow along in the comfort of your own home. Simple chair exercises can be done with a little one-pound weight so you can do arm curls during your favorite TV show. If you prefer to take part in activities, pick those that are enjoyable so you will want to continue doing them regularly. There is no pressure to run a marathon, unless you want to of course, but some of the following activities are best suited to seniors: 1) Walking. You can walk anywhere with no special equipment, just a good pair of running shoes. If you feel unsteady or unsure of walking alone, ask a family member or hire a companion to walk with you so it becomes an outing with conversation. 2)Yoga. Is adaptable to your level and your health issues. If you suffer from chronic pain a good place to start is restorative yoga because it is good for body and soul. 3) Water exercises. These are great because they reduce the strain and stress on your joints. 4) Tai chi and Qi Gong. They both help with balance and strength. Young or old, it has become very clear that in order to age well, exercising is a must and a new prescription for a good, long life.

North Shore Advisory Committee on Disability Issues

There are plenty of obstacles facing people with disabilities, from sidewalks with no curb-cuts to inaccessible washrooms and parks to hard-tonavigate store aisles or crosswalks with no auditory pedestrian signals. Fortunately, there’s a small but dedicated group on the North Shore who are working to make North and West Vancouver more accessible. Meet the North Shore Advisory Committee on Disability Issues (ACDI). Started nearly two decades ago the tri-municipal committee meets once a month with council representatives to discuss projects and initiatives that improve overall accessibility. “[ACDI’s] contribution has been really significant,” explains District of West Vancouver planning analyst Claudia Freire.

City of North Vancouver firefighters

Whether they chose the Fu Manchu, the Super Mario, the Zorro or a simple handlebar, five North Vancouver firemen took part in Movember to raise awareness for prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives. The team grew their ‘staches for the entire month of November to help “change the face of men’s health,” and raised $440 from supporters. The money raised went towards programs run by Movember and Prostate Cancer Canada.

Margaret Benson, teacher and crusader for organ donation

When Cystic Fibrosis caught up to Margaret Benson, a devoted elementary school teacher, she had to quit her job and endure a double lung transplant. The operation went well but she suffered a seizure and stroke soon after that left her fighting to regain her equilibrium. When Benson began to feel better, she decided to compete in the 2003 World Transplant Games in France to help promote organ donation and show donor families what a remarkable difference their loved ones make. “This was the most humbling experience of my life because I don’t do what I do for awards — I do it because of what it means to me,” she told The Outlook. Benson is back in the classroom today, teaching one day a week at Highlands elementary.

Rebellions in West Papua were on the mind of Bowen Island’s Jeremy Bally when he set off to bike across the coun-

try in May. After visiting West Papua, the Indonesiancontrolled half of the island of New Guinea, Bally explored the human rights injustices and subsequent rebellions against the Indonesian military. Back in Canada, he came up with the crosscountry bike ride as a way raise money for community leaders to pay for English classes. On the 9,500-kilometre, three-and-a-half month trek to Newfoundland and back he showed a movie he made himself featuring audio from an interview in West Papua. Towing an 80-pound trailer full of AV equipment, he made 31 multi-media presentations based on his field research.

Dogwood took him in but quickly grew to enjoy his new home and two-hour mountain hikes. Dealing primarily with sporting breed dogs, the group adopted 100 dogs last year and 200 the year before. With 14 foster homes, mostly on the North Shore, the charity’s founder Lichen Tilley hopes the trend will stay. “If everyone adopted rescue dogs instead of ones from a breeder, we’d be able to help a lot more,” she told The Outlook.

Noticing the extent of poverty in Chile, he decided to make a documentary this year with the group Boarders Without Borders. In addition to making the movie, he visited Iquitos, a city in the heart of the Peruvian rainforest accessible only by plane or boat. Campos and other volunteers built two large rafts for residents to grow vegetables on to eat and flowers to sell to the market. All money raised by the flowers goes towards paying teachers in local schools.

The top 10 news stories of 2012 Looking back at the headlines that mattered the most to North Shore residents parents in the family’s North Vancouver home. In her ruling, Judge Deborah Kloegman blamed the Ramsay family’s decision to replace Jordan’s psychiatric drugs with what claimed to be mentally therapeutic multivitamins, for contributing to the fatal attack. In August, Ramsay, now 28, was sentenced by a B.C. Review Board to spend no less than 12 months in psychiatric custody at Colony Farm Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Port Coquitlam.

Onni development on Lonsdale

After two years and one of the most divisive development applications in North Vancouver history, Onni Group announced in December it was pulling out of its central Lonsdale condo plan. And while that application to build two multistorey condo towers and one office building at the 13th Street and Lonsdale Avenue Safeway site has yet to be officially withdrawn, it remains to be seen whether the developer will go through with another round of public hearings on the project slated to begin in January. A November public hearing on the project lasted six hours and brought accusations of bullying and impropriety against Onni staff, city councillors and the public alike. Many in the community oppose the development’s higher-than-currently-allowed density plan while others see it as an important step in revitalizing the central Lonsdale neighbourhood.

IHIT deployed to North Vancouver

Homicide investigators are still piecing together the identity of a young woman whose body was found Aug. 18 behind the Travelodge motel on Marine Drive in North Vancouver. In September, the RCMP’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team appealed for help from the public to identify the woman whose remains appeared to have been intentionally hidden in a wooded area near a popular walking path. Police have been probing a possible European connection in the suspected slaying as the clothing and shoes worn by the woman are sold almost exclusively overseas. The investigation is ongoing and, if foul play is proven, it would be North Vancouver’s only murder of 2012.

Tsleil-Waututh First Nation protests

In 2012, the TsleilWaututh First Nation staged protests and signed declarations opposing oil company Kinder Morgan’s plans to twin its pipeline carrying Alberta oil products to the Burrard Inlet. In July, the North Vancouver band joined more than 130 other nations in signing the Save the Fraser Declaration, an aboriginal law banning Alberta oilsands pipelines on signatories’ lands and restricting tankers from the migratory waters of Fraser River salmon. Then in September, the Tseil-Waututh and Squamish nations each signed an agreement opposing both the increased industrialization of Burrard Inlet and the increased tanker traffic that an expanded Trans Mountain pipeline would bring. In June, Kinder Morgan applied to the National Energy Board for preliminary approval of contracts to expand the pipeline.

Seaspan expansion

Prime Minister Stephen Harper paid a visit to North Vancouver’s Seaspan Marine Corp. in January, congratulating the company on its successful bid for an estimated $8 billion in federal shipbuilding and infrastructure contracts. While the successful bid was announced in Oct. 2011, the North Van shipbuilder officially broke ground in Oct. 2012 to expand its shipyard in preparation for the new work. Four new fabrication buildings, a new pier and a massive shipbuilding crane — one of the largest in the country — are now under construction at the foot of Pemberton Avenue. The $200-million overhaul will take an estimated two years, creating about 150 temporary construction jobs at the North Van site and boosting business for local manufacturers and construction suppliers around the Lower Mainland.

Ramsay verdict

Jordan Ramsay of North Vancouver was found not criminally responsible in a B.C. Supreme Court this July for the 2011 bludgeoning attack that killed his 53-year-old father, Donald, and critically injured his mother, Wendy. The court ruled the schizophrenic Ramsay did not know his actions were wrong when the 27-yearold attacked his sleeping

Balmoral closure

In February, the North Vancouver School District voted to close the last remaining junior high school in North Van, repurposing Carson Graham secondary’s Balmoral campus as a home for adult education and alternative learning programs in September.

The plans were formally announced in January and met with substantial resistance from Balmoral area residents concerned about increased traffic and changing demographics of the neighbourhood. The announcement came as the school district initiated plans to sell or lease 11 surplus former school sites worth an estimated $137 million. Most of the former school sites either closed their doors to students in the last eight years or, like Cloverley elementary school and Keith Lynn Alternative, were slated to close in the next year or so.

Appeal denied

Convicted West Vancouver killers Sebastian Burns and Atif Rafay were denied an appeal to overturn their triple murder convictions in the 1994 slayings of Rafay’s parents and sister inside the family’s suburban Seattle home. The pair, both 28 at the time of their conviction, received three consecutive 99-year life sentences without the possibility of parole for the brutal bludgeoning deaths of Tariq, Sultana and Basma Rafay. But the two men maintained their innocence throughout the high-profile trial in Washington State court, claiming among other things that the RCMP used unfair undercover tactics to ensnare them. But the three-judge appeal court upheld the life convictions on June 18, affirming the decision of one of the longest trials in King County history.

Stranded snowboarder

It was another busy year for the volunteers of North Shore Rescue, but no 48 hours were more harrowing than their exhaustive search for a 33-year-old snowboarder missing from Cypress Mountain. The man had apparently ducked a rope to ride out of bounds in the Cypress backcountry but by nightfall hadn’t returned. Dozens of searchers were called out, as were at least continued, NEXT PAGE

No longer should you think of your house as the family home but instead as a product to be sold in a very competitive market. This is the time to put the home’s best foot forward. One of the first things you should do is sit down with the whole family and make a plan. Every member of the household needs to take a look at their private space, usually their bedroom, and get rid of every single item they are not using or that has outlived its usefulness. In other words, de-clutter. Remove posters from walls and debris from the floor, and organize closets and bookshelves. Once the whole house has been given a major clean-out, go around the house and make note of walls, or full rooms, which need a fresh coat of paint. Every hole and nick on every wall should be filled before painting; you need to achieve a perfect finish. Check door and window casings and the doors themselves for chips and repair each one before painting; you don’t want to send a message to a prospective buyer that your home has been neglected which will get them wondering what else is lurking behind the walls. Your prospective buyer should feel your house has been loved. Floors need to meet the same standard. If your kitchen and/or bathroom floor is worn or stained, replace it. Carpets, rugs and drapes should be professionally cleaned and windows cleaned both inside and out. It makes sense in this market to do everything you can to stand out. There is a school of thought that says a buyer makes a decision in the first 20 seconds as to whether the house appeals to them or not. If this is the case, your prospective buyer isn’t even in the house before giving a thumbs up or down. “People are very attached to their homes but they need to step outside their emotions and see the house as potential buyers,” said Ron Sowden, CEO of home staging company

Dekora. “This is not their home anymore but an asset to be sold. You don’t get a (second) chance to make a first impression so the exterior is very important. Today’s buyer has seen your house on the web so the photos showing a well-cared-for home (are) extremely important.” Curb appeal is a must. Mow the lawn, weed the flower beds and maybe invest in some colourful flowers and pots. Pathways and steps should be power-washed, house numbers prominent, and think about giving your front door some paint and new hardware; it says welcome to your buyer. Very little of this is expensive; all you need is a few weekends dedicated to pulling the house together. Who knows, once you have given your home a full-on facelift you may decide to stay!

Accessorizing the bathroom KERRY VITAL ContRibutoR

T

he fixtures in your bathroom are looking a little dated, or perhaps you’ve moved into an older home and want to give it an update. You’re contemplating replacing them with something new and modern, but there’s a vast array of choices available, and you’re not sure where to start. Perhaps it’s best to get the advice of a professional.

“You need to trust the sales staff,” says Shelli Auclair, showroom manager for Universal Supply. “It’s important to look for qualified sales people.” The sales staff at Universal Supply’s Artistic Baths showrooms all have over 10 years experience with helping customers find their perfect fit, so taking advantage of their expertise will give you some peace of mind. “Our people can read blueprints and know building codes,” Auclair says. “We’ve seen some bad design out there. Architects don’t always know plumbing codes, which is why it’s important to get professional advice when you’re looking for new fixtures.” When it comes to current trends, energy efficiency is at the top of many buyers’ minds, as well as a clean look. “Modern, simple, practical,” says Gloria Lu, branch supervisor for the brand-new Artistic Baths showroom in Richmond when asked about popular designs. “Living independent is a new trend for (the) grown-up baby boomer generation,” she adds. A unique design is also important to customers, instead of the utilitarian designs of the past. When you’re considering the kind of fixtures you want to buy,

it’s important to consider a few things first. “Who is using the bathroom? What (are) their needs? What is the budget?” asks Lu. “It’s always better to consider the practicality first.” Some of the brands that Lu recommends to customers include Kohler, Hytec and Brizo, among others. The Richmond branch of Artistic Baths is an exclusive Kohler showroom, and offers options for every design aesthetic, whether you’re looking for a sleek sink faucet or an ornate rain shower head that reminds you of a spa. The fixtures in your bathroom can be as decorative or as plain as you’d like, though there are several things that are no longer popular. These include brass-finished faucets and coloured fixtures (remember the avocado and harvest gold?) Instead, Kohler offers a range of colourful bathroom sinks that incorporate various designs, from leaves to Moroccan print. You definitely don’t have to settle for basic white anymore! Undermount sinks are becoming increasingly popular as well, especially in high-end new home developments. The pedestal sink is also a trendy choice, especially if you’re going for a more old-world feel in your bathroom. It’s even possible to find glass sinks, whether you’re looking for a bowl design or something that is actually set into the countertop. Even the faucets are getting fancy. You can find faucets that match the sink design, or even ones that look like old-fashioned pumps. When it comes to your new fixtures and faucets, you will have no trouble finding just what you want with such an amazing array now available on the market.

The year in arts 1 Master carver leaves his mark

Xwalacktun didn’t predict he would become a great carver when he first took classes at 12 years old, but years later he is a master of Coast Salish art. Born Rick Harry, he was given his indigenous name by his father, Pekultn, who was a hereditary chief from the Seymour Creekarea. This summer, he put on a live demonstration at the Harmony Arts Festival in West Vancouver. Using razor-sharp tools, he carefully carved a talking stick he would give away at a wedding in August. The talking stick will be passed between the married couple to give each a chance to express his and her feelings. Also this year, Xwalacktun carved an intricate door for the newly built Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art on Lonsdale Avenue.

Gordon Smith Gallery opens

Supported by some of B.C.’s most forwardthinking artists, the Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art opened this October. Pieces in the gallery on Lonsdale Avenue in North Vancouver are used to teach children about design and art history. Calling itself “the first gallery in the country dedicated to young audiences,” the Gordon Smith Gallery has work by Maritime painter David Blackwood, photos by Ontario landscape artist Edward Burtynsky and a sculpture by the North Shore’s own Douglas Coupland. “We’re different from the Vancouver Art Gallery who just try to stay on the cutting edge,” program facilitator Daylen Luchsinger told The Outlook. “We do that too while trying to cater to the K-12 age group.”

Healing through art

It took expressionist artist Leef Evans hours to prepare to chat with The Outlook about his exhibit at the Seymour Art Gallery in North Vancouver. He has depression, a debilitating mental illness that makes just about everything in life more difficult, including painting. Quitting university and eventually living homeless in the Downtown Eastside, Evans, whose real name is Eric Howler, found escape in art. He began taking painting classes through Coast Mental Health seven years ago, a decision he says saved his life.

New Design Gallery

Bringing back fond memories from the past, the West Vancouver Museum put on a show this summer highlighting paintings and sculptures once displayed at the New Design Gallery. Launched in 1955, the gallery on the 1400block of Marine Drive was one of the first in Canada to showcase modern art, which was just emerging on the arts scene in B.C. At the time, contemporary art was anything but popular among “stuffy” Vancouverites who preferred traditional landscapes over abstract deigns. The New Design Gallery helped launch the careers of new North Shore artists, including Bill Koochin (pictured) who still lives in West Van. As modern art became more popular, the revolutionary gallery moved downtown to West Pender Street, where it merged with the newly formed Arts Club.

5

Anonymous Art Show

At the eighth annual Anonymous Art Show each painter’s name was kept topsecret until after his or her piece was sold. “The show puts everyone on the same platform and encourages both emerging and established artists,” said Jo Dunlop, exhibitions coordinator for the North Vancouver Community Arts Council. Artists were free to paint what they wanted, as long as the work was created on an unframed 8”x8” canvas. Their name was written on the back, only to be revealed after the painting was purchased, with half the money going to the artist and the other half to the arts council.

“I don’t know where I’d be today if it wasn’t for art,” he told The Outlook. Evans hasn’t suffered a major attack of depression since he started painting, although he takes life one day at a time.

They opened their doors to the public for one day in July as part of the West Vancouver Museum’s West Coast Modern home tour. A concept community built on a singular architectural vision of modernism meets best practices, the estates are home to some of the best examples of Erickson’s architecture. Suitably, the neighbourhood’s original show home, built in 1981, features the architect’s “inside-out aesthetic” trademark that incorporates the outdoors inside.

Selwyn Pullan exhibition Selwyn Pullan’s personality is like the houses he took photos of – direct and to the point, but with something deeper, more complex underneath. He documented West Coast Modernism, a new kind of architecture that started to appear during the 1950s and ‘60s. Gone were any ornate details without purpose, and in their place popped up post-and-beam construction with sleek lines that showcased the North Shore’s rugged natural setting. “A good design fits the people who live there and the landscape. Now they fill the whole lot with a building that’s just a building,” Pullan told The Outlook from inside his North Van studio. Pullan stood at the forefront of this new design, taking photos of houses throughout Vancouver for magazines, helping to spread the trend across North America.

Rock star Based on decades of painstaking practice, John Shaver knows exactly how stones will balance before he places one on top of the other. He’s the man behind the rock sculptures that dotted the Ambleside Seawall this summer.

To do his magic, he examines the shape and weight of each rock, looking for indents and textured points that will make his seemingly impossible statues stand strong. Shaver learned the art form from a “master” in English Bay when he was in elementary school, but only started taking the craft seriously in the last five years.

Lynn Canyon Band By picking up more and more gigs, Lynn Canyon Band is quickly becoming a fixture on the North Shore. The eclectic four-member group brought together their backgrounds in folk, roots, bluegrass, jazz and blues four years ago. This September, they added Music in the Park, a show at Capilano River Regional Park, to their list of performances. Their dream venue is the annual Harmony Arts Festival in West Van where they hope to win a spot next summer. Being accepted is tough but with more exposure and a CD, Lynn Canyon Band will be tough competition.

On the Waterfront Two of the brightest beacons on the North Shore arts scene lent their work to On the Waterfront, an exhibit documenting the hustle-and-bustle of North Vancouver’s port. At the Cafe for Contemporary Art exhibit this December, Marcus Bowcott and Grace GordonCollins explored the connection between the port, shipbuilding and war, including the fear brought on by Sept. 11th. Their work explored the darker side of “the things we make,” like military equipment and environmentally destructive products.

A taste of Persia.

» Year in Review

The year in sports Canada at the world junior championship in Russia. And you can probably look for another Reinhart joining the ranks soon too. Griffin’s youngest brother Sam is draft eligible in 2014.

Griffin Reinhart joins the family business It’s turned into a family business for the Reinharts. Father Paul was selected 12th overall by the Atlanta Flames in the 1979 NHL draft. Older brother Max was taken 64th overall by the Calgary Flames. This year, it was Griffin Reinhart’s turn. Prior to the 2012 draft, some pundits, like former NHL GM Craig Button, had the West Vancouver-raised defenceman projected as the seventh overall pick in mock drafts. But on draft day in Pittsburgh, the news got even better. With the fourth overall pick of the draft, the New York Islanders selected Reinhart. To make the moment even more special, Reinhart got to watch as good buddy Morgan Rielly, also from West Vancouver, was selected with the next pick by the Toronto Maple Leafs. And the dream season continues for the pair of Hollyburn hockey products. Both are currently suiting up for Team

Rob Sacre drafted by the Lakers Former Handsworth secondary basketball star Robert Sacre was the first B.C.pick to the NBA draft in 16 years, following in the footsteps of Captain Canada Steve Nash. This year, Sacre was selected 60th overall by the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA draft. Mock drafts had the seven-foot centre going in the mid-second round, but he managed to slide into the final pick. Sacre spent the past four years with Spokane’s Gonzaga Bulldogs, where he finished sixth in rebounds, second in blocks and 21st in scoring. “Rob was a wonderful guy and his physical talents were tremendous. There were 42 universities recruiting him while he was here,” his former high school coach told The Outlook. continued, PAGE 16

A taste of venison is just the thing. As a pure lean protein it delivers massive flavour. Sear it, roast it (med. rare max), and let it rest. Deglaze the pan with a splash of port or cabernet. Add a few onions & wild mushrooms. Simmer to reduce & add a glug of good whiskey…Yeah. Whiskey. (Google it – crazy good) Looking for a special cut?

Filip Peliwo wins Wimbledon boys’ title

North Vancouver tennis player Filip Peliwo’s parents knew he was destined to be a champion a decade before he won the 2012 Wimbledon boys’ title in July. The 18-year-old defeated his Australian opponent Luke Saville to take home the trophy and prove he’s the best male junior player in the world. The game was Peliwo’s first victory in a Grand Slam final after three attempts. “Since he was two years old he has been amazingly skilled and very co-ordinated,” said his mother Monika Peliwo, who drove him to daily practices before and after school.

Nikola Girke sails to Olympics

Nikola Girke had high hopes when she set off to compete in RSX windsurfing at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Placing 10th, it was the West Van athlete’s fourth appearance at the Olympics. About the Games, Girke wrote on her website, “Some things go your way, some things don’t. This time they didn’t.” Unfortunately, she continued, the windsurfing equipment she was supplied wasn’t up to par. The first fin was defective and the replacement cracked during the first day of racing. “Because I executed my races extremely well, I can still be happy with my performance and all the factors I can control.” On the upside, she wrote, the weather in Weymouth, the location of the races, was perfect. “I loved it all. I am pretty stoked to say I have no regrets.”

Keaton Briscoe drafted by Red Sox

Ryan Dempster isn’t the only Boston Red Sox with North Van connections. In June, Keaton Briscoe, a third baseman for the University of B.C. Thunderbirds, was drafted by the fabled major league ball team. “We are really proud of Keaton and congratulations to him on being selected by the Boston Red Sox,” his coach, Terry McKaig, said in a press release. “He deserves this opportunity and we wish him luck as he chases his dream.” Along the way, he may be able seek some advice from Dempster, a former North Shore Twin, who recently signed a $26.5 million, two-year deal with the Red Sox.

Helen Crofts named university athlete of the year

Johnston has driven, produced and bought sports cars. He even has a race car museum in his basement, complete with a Dodge Viper, a Corvette C5 and stacks of self-published books. Johnston began racing cars in the 1960s, buying an Austin-Healey Spike Mk 1 and an imported Lola Climax 1100cc racer, but soon realized the track wouldn’t pay his bills. Instead, he started designing and building race cars, from sport racers to Formula Atlantics. His drivers included Bryan Evans, Tony Carruthers, Ross Bentley and Frank Allers. For his dedication, Johnston was honoured by the Great Vancouver Motorsport Pioneers Society in September.

Jessica Smith races to the Olympics

Even though Helen Crofts didn’t start taking track-andfield seriously until after high school, the 21-year-old has a pretty impressive athletic resume. The West Vancouver athlete set the 800metre outdoor record in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics and was named the most outstanding performer at the Great Northwest Athletic championships. But she didn’t stop there. In March, Crofts was named this year’s Sport BC university athlete. “It’s a huge honour, there is a ton athletes in this province that could have won it,” Croft told The Outlook. “It’s an affirmation that you’re on track.”

North Vancouver runner Jessica Smith overcame her most demanding year to win a spot at the 2012 Summer Olympics, where she placed seventh in her heat in the 800m semifinals. This summer, the 22-year-old qualified by finishing in the top three in the women’s 800-metre run at the Olympic trials in Calgary. “You have to prove you’re the best in Canada, and that you should be representing Canada,” Smith told The Outlook while visiting her old training track at Handsworth secondary school. Smith was aiming for the 2016 Olympics — when she will be 26, the peak age for most runners — but was excited to get the chance at the Olympics four years earlier than planned.

Resurgence of Highlanders football The signature on West

Vancouver Secondary football coach Shawn Anderson’s email reads “success is not a goal, it’s by-product of hard work and commitment.” Since taking over the senior football program at West Van in 2010, the high-energy coach has his players buying into this philosophy. Of course, the winning didn’t begin immediately. In his first season on the sidelines he had to cancel the season after a series of injuries left him with barely enough players to field a team. But he started goal-setting immediately with his players. And it’s a paid off with on-field success. This season, the Highlanders made the playoffs and won their first game against Rutland before falling to the No. 1-ranked squad in the province. “It was a successful season for us,” says Anderson. Next season, look for that success to continue.

Golden girls

Two spunky North Shore seniors proved age is just a number by winning multiple track-andfield world records this year. Olga Kotelko, 93 (at left), and Better Jean McHugh, 84, (at right) both say they aren’t health nuts. Instead, the make sure to eat healthy and exercise regularly. “Be sensible. Exercise, eat good food -—I mean nutritious food, not fast-food and no bar-hopping,” Kotelko told the The Outlook with a laugh. McHugh wrote a memoir of her running life in a book called My Road to Rome: The Running Time of BJ McHugh, inspired by her 2009 trip to a marathon in the Italian capital. Following in her footsteps, Kotelko is writing about her road to winning world records, particularly in her favourite sport, the hammer throw.

» INSTANT REPLAY

Here’s a tip of the hat...

District Dialogue

… to everyone who helped in 2012

T

he last column of 2012 is a good time to say Thank You to all those who have contributed during the year in some way – big or small – to the Instant Replay stories which have appeared in The Outlook since the first issue on Nov. 12, 1999.

Whether it’s providing scrapbooks, photos or memories; or maybe suggesting an idea for a story; or perhaps just merely helping to contact someone I’m trying to locate; it’s all very much appreciated. Without you, these stories would never make it into print. The idea for this annual Thank You piece came from Ralph Hall, a former sportswriter, columnist and editor with the old North Shore Review in the 1940s and ’50s and then The North Shore Citizen in the 1950s and ’60s. Each December in a yearly wind-up column, Ralph would list everyone he knew, at least it seemed that way. The names were never alphabetical, meaning everyone had to read the whole list looking for their name. While I’ve carried on the tradition of that little trick, there is one major difference. On looking back, I found that Ralph’s list was the same every year – even in the same order – plus a few additions at the end. However, my names each year include only those people who have helped during the previous 12 months. There are also names of those who have assisted in various ways with my latest book The Pitching Professor: The Life and Times of Ernie Kershaw, One of Professional Baseball’s OldestLiving Former Players, which was recently released, and the soon-to-be-published Play It Again! A Century PLUS of North Shore Sports Stories which will be out in February. However, before getting to the names, I need to pass on a huge Thank You to those who read Instant Replay regularly and to those who call, send e-mails or letters or who will stop me somewhere to say how much they have enjoyed a particular story (or even to provide a correction which is also always appreciated). I feel very humble when someone says they like my style of writing because I know that is God’s doing. I do spend a great deal of time with the research and writing, but the style part seems to come naturally and I thank God often for that blessing. While the names appear in random order for the most part, this first group is made up of those who have been helpful on a regular basis, not only this year but also for many years. So here we go: Fred Hume, Jason Beck, Dick Lazenby, Janet Turner, Daien Ide, Ralph Bower, Justin Beddall, Gerry Karvelis and all the members of the SOB (Some Old Boys) Club, a number of whose names appear somewhere in this list. lencorben@yahoo.ca Of course there’s also Joan Bower, Leslie Pasternak, Julie Clements, Katherine Hume, Rob Newell, Mark Warner, Sharon Kelly, Ken Taylor, Alex Reid, Don Homer, Peter Watson, Cec Stevenson and Tom Kirk. Plus Ian Dixon, Colin Dixon, Tom Kelly, Jack Jung, Linda Jung, Ken Armstrong, the Rossettis (Tony, Shirley-Anne, Jordan and Aaron) and Tod Pelly. What about Greig Bjarnason, Daryl Slade, Joanne Gauthier, Gottfried Pollhammer, Don Moberg, Gareth Rees, Sue Griffin, Buster Moberg, Ernie Dougherty, Howard Kelsey, Warren Standerwick, Inga Heidland, Iola Knight, Rosemary Clapham, Donna Powers and Jessica Delaney. Add to the list Brad Burgart, Elaine Tanner, John Watt, Brian Gavin, Gary Schwertfeger, Jacqueline Blackwell, Roger Kronquist, Brock Tully, Jim Boothroyd, Dr. Lawrence “Boots” Boothroyd, Margaret Boothroyd, Mike Evans and Jen Rollins.
