Three reports of cars being rammed in Cloverdale area

‘All I saw were headlights,’ driver says Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

A 22-year-old South Surrey woman says another driver deliberately rammed her car and forced her off the road last week. University student Ashley Larson said she was heading home on Highway 10 from Fleetwood where she was babysitting for a relative around 11:30 p.m.

when the collision happened. After babysitting, she took a side trip to Cloverdale to get gas and was driving on Highway 10 near the 176 Street intersection, when she noticed a car directly behind her had suddenly changed lanes. Then another vehicle came up behind her in the same lane and slammed into the back of her 2010 Hyundai Elantra several times, causing her to crash into

a concrete divider, Larson said. It was over in a matter of seconds. “All I saw were headlights,” Larson said. The lights were up high, which makes her think it was a much bigger vehicle. It was dark, but there was no significant rain or snow falling at the time, Larson said. She was taken by ambulance to Peace

Arch Hospital for precautionary reasons. Larson said a police officer told her there had been two other similar incidents not far from her crash that evening. Larson is being treated for neck and shoulder injuries. She is also experiencing some post-incident anxiety. › see page 4

Two months after authorities took Ryan Ashe off the streets and into hospital, White Rock’s best-known homeless man says he’s no better, no worse than he was before. “I went ahead and did what they told me. I got a bed and I got meals – better than nothing,” Ashe said earlier this month, from his perch at the Thrift Avenue bus stop he used to call home. “They gave me a bunker under an old house.” Ashe, who has been a familiar figure on White

Rock’s uptown street corners for decades, was hospitalized in October, one week after a Peace Arch News letter-writer detailed her concerns with the “dirty and scary looking” figure. City officials told PAN in April that for safety and health reasons, Ashe would have to be moved from a bus stop he had overtaken in the 1400-block of Johnston Road. The request prompted Ashe to relocate across the street, to a bus shelter on Thrift Avenue. He remained there until police and paramedics picked him up one day in early October. The decision sparked a flurry of letters to the

editor, some critical, some supportive. Ashe now says his time in hospital was the worst of the experience. He’s sure, after going 13 years without “a cold or a sniffle,” that it contributed to him developing pneumonia. But those who’ve kept an eye on Ashe over the years say he looks healthier now than he had in a long time. “He looks better from a perspective of looking at him, looks a bit more cleaner,” said Helen Fathers, a White Rock councillor who has known Ashe for more than 20 years. › see page 4

A lawsuit by three ousted BC Conservative party dissidents against the party has been put on hold while the two sides try to resolve their differences out of court. Court records show the matter was adjourned generally following a Dec. 7 appearance in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver. Under court rules, the lawsuit can be reinstated if no agreement is reached. On Sunday, one of three dissidents, Ariane Eckardt, former president of the Burnaby North constituency association, said they were close to a settlement with the party in early December, about the time the adjournment was made, but talks have since bogged down. “They keep sending us counterproposals,” Eckardt told Peace Arch News Sunday. “It’s ridiculous that it has taken this long.” Dr. Allison Patton, former president of the Surrey-White Rock consituency association, said Monday that it appears no further progress has been made in negotiations. “It seems, at this stage, it will ultimately be resolved by the courts,” Patton said. A Conservative party representative declined a request for comment Monday. When the lawsuit was filed last month, BC Conservative party president Al Siebring said he would not make a statement because the matter was before the courts.

Surrey-Cloverdale isn’t quite as safe as Surrey-White Rock, but the NDP need to have a good candidate there. If the Conservatives run a strong candidate there, and there is no sign of that, the NDP have a better chance to win as a result of the vote split. It’s still likely to stay Liberal. Surrey-Panorama could be a tougher seat for the Liberals. While Dhaliwal won two terms in Ottawa, and has strong support from the South Asian community, many South Asians back the NDP. The demographics of the riding favour the Liberals, but not overwhelmingly. Again, what the Conservatives do or do not do could be crucial. On election day, the Liberals will likely be in a stronger position than they are today, but it seems unlikely they can regain enough ground to own a fourth straight term. More likely is an NDP government with Premier Adrian Dix in charge, with Ralston as finance minister and Bains in charge of transportation. Frank Bucholtz writes Thursdays for the Peace Arch News.

New bylaw restricts size of homes Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A bylaw to limit the size of single-family homes that can be built in White Rock is on the books. Council voted unanimously last week to give third and final reading to amendments that prevent RS-1 zone homes from having a second storey any bigger than 80 per cent of its first, and limits the number of basements to one. The changes were suggested after a builder in White Rock this fall excavated to his lot’s property lines in order “to daylight” two levels of basement that are being built below the site’s natural grade

– a step that removes those levels from gross floor-area calculations. Once complete, the house will be 14,000 square feet. While everything was done by the book, the project spurred city officials to expedite steps to prevent plans for other excessively large homes from coming forward. In addition to passing the amendments last Monday, council voted to support a staff recommendation to grant two building permits that don’t meet both of the new rules. The permits were received while the amendments were being processed. In explaining the recommenda-

tion, city planner Connie Halbert told council that while the two applications do not ask for a second basement, both do not meet the 80 per cent criteria for the second floor. With setbacks, however, “the resulting houses shouldn’t be boxy,” she said. City manager Dan Bottrill added that both applications “meet the spirit of what council was trying to achieve.” Further revisions to the zone are possible, as staff works to revamp the zoning bylaw as a whole. A draft is expected to come forward in January.

Shifting focus of chamber of commerce cited by mayor for change

Tourism White Rock takes over kiosk Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Management of the visitors information centre on White Rock’s waterfront is no longer a function of the South Surrey White Rock Chamber of Commerce. The mandate has been passed to Tourism White Rock. “It’s something we’ve been working on since the inception of the tourism society,” Mayor Wayne Baldwin said of the move. “(Tourism White Rock) was formed… to sort of look after all the tourism function in the city.” The step was disclosed last week – during council’s last meeting of the year – as information released from an in-camera meet-

ing. The process leading to it was discussed behind closed doors because it involved contracts, Baldwin told Peace Arch News. Chamber officials are “totally in support” of the hand-over, executive director Cliff Annable told PAN, noting the Semiahmoo Peninsula organization was one of few that had both a chamber and a tourism component. The kiosk, located just east of the museum, has been run by the chamber since Bill Reid led the organization in the ’80s. Reid, a former MLA and minister of tourism (and who is now executive director of the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce), knew how to get through the system to leverage whatever funds the city put into

the chamber to get more money from the province, Baldwin said. The city entered into a contract for the service in order to facilitate that leverage, he said. At the time, with the majority of chamber membership hailing from White Rock, the arrangement “made sense,” said Baldwin. Over the years, however, that has reversed. “It’s about 75, 80 per cent Surrey… so it doesn’t make sense for them to take it full on any longer because it doesn’t meet the needs of their membership, primarily. “That’s not really their core business.” While details are still being worked out, and chamber staff may be called on to handle some aspects of tourism, Baldwin said

Tourism White Rock has the lead. In addition to creating a “more coherent” system, the move will save the city money, Baldwin said. Tourism director executive director Betina Albornoz said she won’t be able to comment until she returns from holiday next week. Director of financial services Sandra Kurylo said last Thursday that she did not yet know what those savings might be, as details are still being worked out. The city gave the chamber $61,200 for tourism services in 2012, she said, with the majority of that earmarked for operating the kiosk. Tourism White Rock received $20,000 in city funds this year.

Figures lauded

‘Farmers’ brought in $1.3m Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The local economy sees an annual “economic benefit” of $1.3 million from the White Rock Farmers’ Market, council heard last week. It’s a figure officials are proud of, said market president Tina Lambert. “That’s what the market brings in from about 80 hours of it operating a year,” she said. The number was detailed in a study undertaken to assess the community and economic benefits of farmers markets in B.C. White Rock Farmers’ Market was among 33 included in the study. Highlights noted for White Rock – which operates on a budget of less than $100,000 per year – include an increase in per-customer spending at the market to $24.60, from $20.82 determined in a 2006 assessment; and an increase in visitors, to 46,398 in 2012 from 35,273. The current per-customer spending average is lower than that seen at other B.C. markets and below the Canadian average, the report notes. More than half (60.7 per cent) of customers surveyed said they would do additional shopping in the area; that number, too, is lower than the 2006 study (66.4), as is the average amount spent in the surrounding area ($13.67 in 2012, compared to $16.15 in 2006). Lambert said the 2012 additional spending translates to an economic benefit of more than $430,000. The estimated $1.3 million spent “supports the general view that the market has grown over the past six years,” the report notes. In 2006, the figure was put at $881,000. Another sign of growth was the number of visitors new to the market. On the study day –  Aug. 12, 2012 – 24 per cent of the 570 surveyed said they started shopping there just this season. Coun. Helen Fathers, who is market manager, told Peace Arch News she is “thrilled” with the findings. Mayor Wayne Baldwin said the market has “been a success story within our White Rock economy.”

Neglected tradition rekindled by last year’s honouree

2012 New Year’s mom embraces 2013 Alex Browne Staff Reporter

As mother of White Rock’s 2012 New Year’s baby, Tiffany Baldwin has no complaints. She and husband Rob have a beautiful girl, Ryan Allegra Grace Baldwin – now rapidly approaching her first birthday – a treasured younger sister for their boy Jordan, who started Grade 1 this year. But she’s taking the initiative to welcome White Rock’s first arrival of 2013 by organizing her own collection of donated goods and services for baby and mom – and she’s hoping her gesture will start a tradition that will last for years to come. Baldwin emphasizes that Peace Arch Hospital and the hospital’s auxiliary certainly did their part in making Ryan and herself feel special when the baby was born last Jan. 1. The arrival was welcomed with a vase of roses, a pink teddy bear, a sleeper set with the legend ‘I was born at Peace Arch Hospital’ and pink knitted boots and hat. But long-time White Rock resident Baldwin – and others she’s talked to – can remember a time when the community was even more involved in celebrating the first baby of the new year in terms of donations in goods and

services from local businesses. It seems to be a tradition that’s fallen by the wayside, mostly because hospital staff and volunteers’ schedules are too busy to leave much time to solicit donations from local businesses already beseiged by requests. “Maybe it’s just that we’ve become too big as a community,” Baldwin said. “It would be nice to slow down a bit, take time to welcome the baby and family.” That’s why Baldwin – who is returning to work in the new year as an on-call elementary school teacher for Surrey School District – started a Facebook page to encourage donations for a welcome basket of gifts for the 2013 baby and mom – in addition to whatever the hospital and auxiliary have planned. And as busy as she is being a new mom – and also helping fundraise for her son’s school, Roots and Wings Montessori – Baldwin has raised some $600 in goods and services to present to the family of the first arrival of 2013. “I feel good about what I’ve done,” she said, adding she found local merchants very responsive to her idea. “I just wish I’d started earlier. Some places had already exhausted their budgets for giving this year. “I wanted to give back to the merchants, espe-

cially the small businesses in the area. They get hit up all the time for things like silent auctions at schools. That’s why I created the Facebook page. It’s something to show respect for their generosity.” Among items donated in the 2013 collection are toys, health products, maternity wear, jewelry and spa treatments. The Piece Arch Quilters (Baldwin’s own mother is a member) have also contributed a quilt and face cloths. Baldwin said that while she wants to pass the torch to others after this year – she would like to see the initiative become an annual tradition, and will include a personal note to the family of the next New Year’s baby with a plea for their personal co-operation. “I really hope it carries on,” she said. “The idea behind it is to make it a payforward arrangement. In starting the Facebook page, and building relationships with businesses, I’ve done all the groundwork and paved the way for the next New Year’s mom and family to go out and do the same thing. “In time, it could be amazing – but it takes time and momentum and people knowing you’re committed.” For more information, visit www.facebook. com/NewYearsBabySouthSurreyWhiteRock

Richmond company donates 10 baby cribs to Alex House

31 ec.Stork D A welcome giftuefrom l i t un Alex Browne Staff Reporter

There may have been a cold rain falling on the grounds of Alexandra Neighbourhood House in Crescent Beach last Thursday morning – but there was a warm, Christmassy feeling at the facility’s beach house building, as staff took the delivery of 10 baby cribs donated by Stork Craft Manufacturing Inc. of Richmond. Stork Craft president and CEO Jim Moore, product management vice-president Adam Segal and B.C. Minister of Children and Family Development Stephanie Cadieux were on hand to explain that the local delivery was the first of many to be co-ordinated by the ministry throughout the Lower Mainland and across B.C. Moore said the cribs, designed to provide a safe sleep environment for infants, are being donated to families in need who don’t have the resources to buy them. And while he said there was no specific limit on the number of cribs that will be donated, he estimated the most pressing need – as identified by distribution partners the Association of Neighbourhood Houses of B.C., the B.C. Society of Transition Houses and Westcoast Family Centres – is for 1,000 cribs

Cadieux, MLA for Surrey-Panorama) said Stork Craft’s donation “will go a long way in supporting vulnerable families in British Columbia.” She added the donations could help families in a range of situations, including low-income families, women and children escaping violence, or immigrant and refugee families. “Whatever circumstances the families find themselves in, this is a valuable contribution.” Rhea Hubbard, director of youth and family programs at Alexandra Neighborhood House, said that in addition to distributing cribs to needy families, the facility is looking at retaining some on-site for its child care programs. “We know how important sleep is in the growth and development of a child,” she said. “This (donation) will make a huge difference.” Moore said Stork Craft has a long-standing commitment to philanthropy, starting with company founder Joseph Segal, Adam Segal’s grandfather. “Both my grandfather and my father are very involved in community,” Segal said. “They instilled in me the importance of giving back to those in need, and the vulnerable who can’t help themselves.”

across the province, amounting to a $250,000 donation. “We started off responding to a single person in Calgary who was a friend of NeighbourLink (a charitable organization) which had a desperate need for 100 cribs,” Moore said. “Then, we thought, there’s got to be a need in B.C., too. We contacted the ministry to see what we could do, and they put together quite a program for us.”

An exercise in wastefulness

T

he Missing Women Inquiry, chaired by former judge and attorney-general Wally Oppal, was an exercise in wasted opportunities. The inquiry report, made public last week, tells the public almost nothing new about the sad case of the dozens of missing women from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Many of them were murdered by Robert Pickton, but he has only been convicted of six murders. Twenty other charges against him were stayed, ironically under Oppal’s watch as B.C.’s attorney-general. The inquiry itself became quickly bogged down with too many lawyers representing police officers, current and retired, at taxpayers’ expense. The police officers had nothing to fear from any testimony. None of them have been disciplined in any way. The actual victims received minimal attention, although Oppal tried to make up for it with the title of his report, Forsaken, and some expressions of sympathy at his Dec. 17 news conference. The inquiry was flawed from the start, with limited terms of reference and insistence that police be represented by legions of lawyers. They went on to take control of the proceedings and bill to their heart’s content. The Law Society of B.C. should be concerned about such legal over-representation and misuse of scarce public funds, but no such concerns will come from that quarter. There will be no biting of the hand that feeds. One recommendation of Oppal’s that is receiving some attention is one he’s pushed before – a regional police force. Unfortunately, there is little in the way of concrete evidence that, had a regional police force been in place, Pickton would have been caught any sooner. Police let him from their grasp once, and he returned to his killing spree. As Oppal observes, the women of the Downtown Eastside were of little worth in the eyes of police and many other members of society, and police didn’t overly concern themselves with those who went missing. If there was a regional police force at the time, how would that have been different? Oppal assumes there would be no turf and jurisdictional wars within a regional force, which is naive in the extreme. This inquiry was launched with great fanfare by Premier Christy Clark, as proof that she was doing things differently. It has ended with a thud, with little to show for all Oppal’s efforts except a raft of lawyers’ bills.

the killer at the school, any more than the presence of an armed guard at Columbine High School stopped the murder of 12 students and a teacher in Colorado in 1999. I don’t see how the surprise attack on movie-goers by a man in full protective gear last summer in Aurora, Colo. would have been averted had more concealed weapons been in the theatre that evening. And I don’t see the logic behind the statement attributed to NRA executive vice-president Wayne LaPierre, Friday, that “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” Is this anything more than hopefulness, given the seemingly unpredictable nature of the way “good” people have turned “bad” in the past? But this is just opinion. My opinion. From my limited vantage point. I want to relate to the views of the seeming majority of Americans who demand their right to bear arms – with merely a modicum, if any, of government oversight. I want to understand their need for self-protection and their fear of their own neighbours and their own leaders. It seems to me they want to have firearms within reach at any given point to defend themselves against the person who would otherwise attack them. It seems to me they predict more fear will keep their loved ones safer. I predict only one possible outcome from this approach: more bloodshed. Lance Peverley is editor of the Peace Arch News.

Show us victim, not drunk driver Editor: Re: ‘I’ll trade places with her in a second,’ Dec. 20. What a missed opportunity to remind people of the monumental tragedy of drinking and driving. Instead of honouring Kassandra Kaulius’s memory, you put the photo of the woman who chose to drink and chose to drive with more than double the legal limit of alcohol in her system on the front page quoting her. Kassandra’s photo was relegated to page 4. She can never change places and she can never replace Kassandra and nothing will ever atone for this unnecessary death. Natasha pleaded guilty in July. Why did she not reach out to Kassandra’s family with an apology since that time and why did she not even face them or acknowledge them when she “apologized” in the court room but instead chose to only face the judge? Kassandra’s family once again faced a Christmas without their daughter, while the person who killed her was home for the holidays. When will the press stop honouring the murderers and instead remember the victims? Longer jail times and longer driving prohibitions are not just to punish the perpetrator but are also a way to discourage others from drinking and driving when they see the consequences. Susan Leno, White Rock

people give so freely of themselves without being paid a single penny? Ahhh… it’s because they want to be here and they genuinely care about helping others! Here in this quaint little store, warmed by the generous hearts of its volunteers, is the manifestation of the true Christmas message. Christmas is not about getting, it’s about giving. Marc Burchell, Surrey

and wallet right out of White Rock. Too bad, ’cause I was just reading about how merchants along the waterfront are lobbying local government for ways to increase business in the area. What a shame. Might I suggest that people may be more inclined to do business with you if they are treated with, well, less disdain. Good luck with your waterfront in winter. Justine Fafard, Delta

Driven away Organize by your disdain HandyDart Editor: On a recent Monday, I thought I had a great idea-we would go spend a little time and money walking along the waterfront and visiting the shops in White Rock with our dog. I live in Delta now and don’t get out to White Rock very often, so it seemed like a nice way to pass the time. How wrong I was… I paid for several hours of parking and had barely left the lot along the waterfront walkway when a gentleman feeding the birds called out to me, asking if I was aware there is a $250-fine for simply walking with a dog there. Needless to say, I was unaware. Needless to say, I have had few introductions to a municipality as unwelcome as that one – although the gentleman was quite polite and cheerful. And needless to say I went back to my car and drove my dog

Editor: I can’t deny that HandyDart is a very useful conveyance for the elderly and infirm, but their organization is terrible. Most of the time there is a single passenger, and the next call from the same building at about the same time is sent another bus! They can’t seem to deliver and later pick up wheelchair-bound riders. I know of one person in a wheelchair who has been left stranded, waiting for a taxi that a stranger on the street called, on a cold, windy evening. The excuse given is that there are too many people wanting a ride in the early evening. I find that after 5 o’clock, there are no more drivers on duty. They’ve all gone home. You would think that the infirm could have some aid to get out and

back, especially now that the weather is going to be a shut-in factor. Stephanie Tortorelli, Surrey

Keep your parking proof Editor: My wife and I went to Victoria, parking at the Tsawwassen ferry lot. We parked our car and paid $16 cash for 24-hour parking. When we returned later the same day, everything was fine so I threw out the receipt. The next day, we had parked the car on the street in front of our condo in South Surrey. When my wife went to use the car, there was a parking ticket on the windshield for $80 – $60 if paid within seven days. Needless to say, we were not amused, but without the receipt I doubt if they would forgo the fine, so we went dumpster diving and, fortunately, we were able to retrieve the receipt, which clearly states we paid for the parking space that they claimed that we hadn’t paid for. I wonder how many other people that this happens to. I have tried to contact them by phone but they say that there is high volume and to try later – probably several others phoning to dispute their tickets. The moral of the story is to keep your parking receipt for several days because you may also get a ticket unexpectedly. Ross Phillips, Surrey

Magic formula found in store Editor: Tucked away in a corner of South Surrey, lies the secret that I spent a lifetime in retail trying to capture. Throughout my career, I understood the key to success was in enhancing the customer experience. But achieving that formula throughout a large chain of stores is challenging. It comes down to the people who represent the store when serving its customers. We spent vast resources of time, money and energy attempting to teach our staff how to make each customer’s visits a memorable experience. However, the success of these endeavours was inconsistent: some people got it and others didn’t. Recently, I’ve had the good fortune to work as a volunteer with the White Rock/South Surrey Hospice Society Thrift Shop. While working in the store one morning, I discovered the magic formula that every retailer seeks, yet many find so elusive. As I heard the warmth and sincere caring that each volunteer staff member shares with their customers and with each other, it struck me. Like Ebenezer Scrooge awakening from a night of revelation at the hands of three Christmas spirits, it occurred to me that the magic can’t be taught or bought. How can it be that these

Little has been resolved since last year’s decision to split student schedules at Earl Marriott, writes Shiloh Sorrenti.

The domino effect takes over EMS Editor: Nearly 2,000 students, three floors, crowded, no way out but a door to your left. Pushing is such a bother. I hate it. I can’t take it anymore. This has to be solved. I can’t get to my locker at Earl Marriott Secondary without pushing someone out of my way. Why must we have two different schedules – one for juniors and one for seniors? I liked the way it was before. People get knocked over, stepped on and pushed around. Some students walk too slowly, and others make a big crowd in the middle of the hallway. You have to push your way just to get through. And I really don’t understand the new schedule. Sure it’s to solve the overcrowded situation, but it’s not working. The hallways are still crowded, because when the seniors are changing classes, the juniors are either getting out for lunch or moving to their last block. I have friends in Grade 8 and I’ll never get to spend time with them until I’m in Grade 12 and they are in Grade 10.

And lastly, why must it be so loud, so unfocused with so many annoyances going on in the hallways? Students have to be more focused. People have got to be aware of what is going on in front of them and not get in the way. I really do hate it when people have to push each other in the halls. It’s like a huge domino effect. During lunch, we are all bundled together. We can’t use the hallways because it needs to be quiet for the junior classes. Also, there are bells constantly interrupting classes so students on opposite schedules know when to change classes. I just really hope the school board realizes that none of the changes they have made have worked out. The crowding at EMS has gotten worse and the school board thinks they fixed it by putting a split schedule into effect, but they didn’t. They should really look more closely and see what they can do to make it better. Maybe the only thing that will work is to build an addition or an entire new school so we will have the room we need.

New loonies and toonies to be accepted soon.

Parking meters to take new coins

Relief in sight Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

For anyone who has been frustrated by the fact that roadside parking meters around White Rock’s Peace Arch Hospital don’t recognize new-issue loonies and toonies, relief is in sight. Sandra Kurylo, the city’s financial services director, confirmed last week that meters which accept both the new and old coins are expected to be installed this week. “The manufacturer has found a solution in the mechanism that works for us,” Kurylo said. “We tested them, they work well. They are going to be shipped tomorrow (Dec. 19). I would say in a week, they should be up and running.”

Figuring out how to deal with the Park-o-Meter (POM) equipment has been an issue since the new $1 and $2 coins were put into circulation last April. While a quick solution had been hoped for, red stickers advising visitors that the new coins don’t work have adorned the 90 or so machines since May. Kurylo said the city received “a couple” of the replacement meters to test about a month ago. They have a different “mechanism” inside the meter head, including a piece of software, that enables the meters to recognize both old and new coins, she said. Kurylo said cost of the replacement meters was about $14,000.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Marine Drive business prepares to shut doors

‘The Garden of Eden of muffler shops’ Alex Browne

I

Staff Reporter

t’s a bittersweet moment, Rick and Dan Saunders have to admit, looking over the White Rock Mufflers site at Marine Drive and Oxford Street that’s been a landmark – and home to a thriving city business – since 1973. The brothers, who sold their property in August for a reported $4.5 million, are still on the search for a new location for Rick’s repair shop and Dan’s car dealership – preferably somewhere on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. But in the meantime, with the repair side shut down, they’re overseeing the dismantling of shop equipment and clean-up of the site, a job which is expected to last into the early months of next year. A one-of-a-kind operation with a scenic waterfront outlook, the likes of the muffler shop will not be seen again, Rick said – certainly not within city limits. Indeed, it’s always been something of an anomaly in a town that closed the zoning door on any new auto repair shops years ago. “We’ll never, ever get a nicer location for a shop than this,” Rick said. “To look outside and see the water, or get the sea air when the doors are open. This is the Garden of Eden of muffler shops. We’ve been blessed – we had 39 years of it.” Over that time they’ve had a lot of repeat trade from loyal customers who’ve enjoyed the brothers’ straight from the shoulder, neighbourly approach. They not only know locals by face and first name, but also by their cars, past and present. “We’ve always tried to treat people as if they were our own mom and dad, or family and friends,” Rick said. The brothers’ impending departure heralds a lot of changes for the site. The new owners are planning a combined residential and commercial development on a rezoned 1.14 acre consolidated property that includes the 29,800 sq. ft. (0.68 acre) White Rock Mufflers site. The proposed development

The Saunders’ leased the property from Shell Oil for five years before buying the site from the company in 1978. “The building should have been bulldozed about 40 years ago – we mothballed it for 32 years,” younger brother Dan said, briefly joining Rick as he surveyed the quaint and antiquated wooden construction techniques visible on the inside of the building, including firewalls made of closely buttressed two-by-fours. Also slated for demolition is the old BCER bus station building on Oxford Street – also at one time the home of the Semiahmoo House Society. The brothers added to their property in 1986, rescuing it from vandalism, and the very real risk it would be torched by arson-

Other factors that also contributed to moving from the costly waterfront location, he added, among them changes in car manufacturing over the last two decades that took a cumulative bite out of the traditional bread-and-butter of repair shops. “Nowadays automobile makers don’t make equipment easy to work with,” he said, adding that sealed components have made small fixes and adjustments a thing of the past. “With some of these Mercedes and Volkswagen vehicles, you have to pull the front end off to fix something. It’s an eight-hour job for something that used to be 20 minutes, and, of course, people see the bill and say ‘what?!’ “If we stayed here another five years, I think we’d be shoe-ing horses,” Rick added, with a laugh. But at the same time he’s been contemplating winding down the Marine Drive operation, Dan’s dealership has taken off and is enjoying great success, he noted. And while he acknowledges the prospect of retirement and spending more time with “a couple of wonderful grandchildren” is definitely appealing, working with cars is in his blood. If the right location becomes available, some version of the Saunders’ combined business will likely pop up again on the Peninsula or nearby. “This (the sale) has been about 2½-three years in the making,” Rick said. “If this would have happened a year and a half ago, we would have been up on King George Boulevard, because a location was available then. But we’ve been looking for eight months now and there’s not a thing out there. “We’ll take some time to look and see where we go from there. There could be somebody who is going through the ebbs and tides of every business and decides to sell. “It would be nice to keep the repair shop and dealership together, but trying to find the right place with the right zoning is going to be hard.”

Betty Be Good switches from online to a traditional store for December

Going old-school for a Good cause

r! a e Y w e N y p p a H

Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

A few people walking through the Shops at Morgan Crossing in South Surrey were startled when the mannequins in one store window moved. “People were surprised,” said Suzanne Smith, the owner of online fashion boutique BettyBeGood.ca Smith, a South Surrey resident, and her sister Karianne Hamilton, a resident of Langley, were among the volunteer mannequins who took turns in the window Friday night and Saturday afternoon. “We wanted to do something a little different,” Smith said. The store was offering The Salvation Army $1 per minute for every minute the models managed to pose completely still. The store will donate $120. Smith said distractions by shoppers outside the window made it difficult for models to hold completely still for more than a few minutes at a time. The ‘mannequin’ that posed the longest was Vicki Schrader who was able to stand in the window for nearly 90 minutes. But that was broken up with some breaks and “certainly a shift of pose,” Smith added. For December, Smith’s webonly store has gone old-school by opening a walk-in outlet

Suzanne Smith, owner of online store Betty Be Good. called Betty’s Pop Up Shop. The temporary boutique, located in a former photography studio across from the

Winners Store, will be open until Dec. 27. Smith says dealing directly with living, breathing three-

dimensional customers has been “wonderful.” She may do another temporary store a few months down the road, she said. The Pop Up Shop is donating five per cent of all purchases to Betty’s Liberty Closet; a fund created by BettyBeGood.ca to help the Salvation Army provide cothing to women fleeing the sex trade. Betty Be Good was started in November 2011 by Smith. Its name is a tribute to Smith’s mother.

KNIGHTS OF KNIGHTS OFCOLUMBUS COLUMBUS- 12TH – 9THANNUAL ANNUAL

Healthy food given to food bank

Hearty donation

Sammy Yoo photo

Lyrical luck

Performing in a Kids Help Phone talent show won a pair of Surrey-area singers a $100 gift basket and a $50 Starbucks card. Twin sisters Brianne (left) and Alanna Finn-Morris performed an original song, Wounded Angel, at the Dec. 8 event. Sponsor Robert Davidson (right) presented the prize.

A recent donation to Sources White Rock South Surrey Food Bank came from the heart. More precisely, from people who are currently working to look after their hearts. “They have brought very good food… very healthy,” said Fred Kikhosrowkiany, of participants in the cardiac rehabilitation program who answered a call to donate to the food bank. Kikhosrowkiany, who works with participants,

estimates 500 to 600 items were collected over the three-week effort. In addition to food, clothing and toys were also donated. “I need a truck to take these away,” he said. Kikhosrowkiany planned to drop the cache off to the 24 Avenue facility last week, and lauded those who made the gift possible. “The community of South Surrey/White Rock… they did it,” he said.

Active South Surrey couple, 80 and 70, train together

Turning back the clock with an active life Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

Glen Pirie and Sharon Young are halfway through an intense workout when a Peace Arch News reporter arrives to take a photograph. Young is working up a good sweat on an exercise bicycle while her husband is blasting through a session on the elliptical trainer, looking as crisp as he did when he started his routine an hour earlier. “He doesn’t sweat,” she says, enviously. The 80-year-old Pirie also doesn’t cough the way he used to, a chest-rattling sound that was the result of lung damage he blames on demolishing asbestos-riddled buildings when he was younger. In fact, he says he’s been able to amaze his doctor by improving his lung capacity. “My lung specialist told me I no longer need annual visits,” Pirie says. The 70-year-old Young says the regular workouts are more than a matter of weight management for her. She recently went through a knee replacement and credits her level of fitness for a quick recovery. She was back to doing rolling squats 12 weeks after her right knee was replaced. The couple, both residents of South Surrey, say their experience

Young at Heart

A place to come home to

S

itting by the warm, roaring fire, she reflects on her day. It was a busy one, filled with good friends, delicious food and lots of laughter. She woke up bright and early, and made her way down to the main floor, where she was greeted with a friendly smile from the staff members she now thinks of as friends. She made her way into the dining area

and saw her favourite dish had been prepared – the perfect fuel to help her charge up for the activities she had planned for the day. She spotted her friends and made plans for a game of cards later in the evening and then took a walk through the beautiful courtyard. After her walk, she went up to her

spacious room and spent some quality time with her beloved cat, then made plans for a visit from her family later this week. Living at her new home has been an ideal transition, she thought. It’s almost as if she is living a dream. This is the life of residents at Sunnyside Manor.

Find a hidden sanctuary located in Sunnyside › from page 23

Inspired by an English manor the centrally-located building is a gem in the community. When you enter Sunnyside Manor you are immediately greeted by a friendly smile and a warm welcoming fireplace. That feeling of coming home is no accident. The staff at Sunnyside take the utmost care to ensure every resident- and their four-legged friends! - feels comfortable and welcome. “We really want them to know that this is their home and we are their guests,” said manager Michelle Van leperen. “We’re pet-friendly because we understand how important it is to keep those you love close by.” While winter has covered up the greenery and flowers for now, if you have a greenthumb or simply enjoy a beautiful garden, Sunnyside is a must-see in the Spring. Described by residents as a hidden sanctuary, Sunnyside’s beautiful courtyard features a concrete pathway that follows the perimeter of the green space, which includes a gazebo, swinging chair sets and benches along the path.

The library is a great spot to find a favourite book to enjoy or to relax and enjoy some quiet time.

Lined with lush and leafy plants, the courtyard is a popular destination for residents, who can be seen enjoying happy hour, socializing or even helping out in the garden, which showcases many of the crafts

made by residents, including hand-painted stone art and statues. “It’s our little secret garden. It’s dormant right now, but it’s beautiful in the Spring. Hummingbirds are a common treat to see and

it’s a relaxing and safe place for a walk with family and friends,” Michelle said. Aside from hummingbirds, there are some other feathered friends for residents to visit. Adopted birds from

Greyhaven offer residents company and entertainment. “It really cheers them up to see the birds,” Michelle said. When residents are not enjoying the garden, they can be found planning trips to Semiahmoo Shopping Centre or White Rock’s famous beaches, both of which are minutes away. And staying active has never been so easy. At Sunnyside, there are a number of different ways to get fit and engage the mind, body and spirit, including a range of exercise classes, movies, a pool table and bingo. If you’re looking for some quiet time, a quick visit to the computer lounge, puzzle stations or the wellstocked library may help. “Most of our suites have fireplaces and they create a sense of warmth. Not to mention, they’re perfect for curling up with a good book,” Michelle said. Speaking of rooms, there is a great variety of options available, including the new 900-sq.-ft. suite for those who are looking for a little extra space. With high vault-like ceilings and a stunning

Other options include one bedroom and den, one bedroom, and studio suites. “The high ceilings and spacious suites make people feel comfortable and at home.

Do you know how to use your camera? Most people own digital cameras these days. But how many of us really know how to use them properly? There is so much more to a digital camera than the automatic settings. The best way to make the most of your digital camera is to take some classes in photography or at least attend a basic photography workshop. As well as becoming more knowledgeable about your camera, you will learn to take some great photos by using the manual settings. Notions such as exposure, focusing, use of the flash, and shutter speed are not that difficult to master. In just a few weeks you should be able to use your camera to its full potential.

Photography classes get students beyond the automatic settings and into creating truly beautiful shots.

slow, precise movements also help improve flexibility and balance. That said, tai chi is great for all those who wish to improve their health and their quality of life, no matter what age group they belong to. Many studies show that tai chi brings an improvement of overall health on both a physical and mental level. Improved quality of sleep, lower blood pressure, relief of symptoms due to stress or depression, enhanced memory, and better lung capacity are just a few of the improvements seen by researchers. It seems that tai chi can even reduce pain in people suffering from rheumatism, arthritis, or fibromyalgia. Tai chi can be learned at any age. As many different organizations offer this type of class, it is always a good idea to research all the possibilities before registering. If possible, ask if you can attend a session as an observer. Even though some schools give individual lessons, most classes are for groups. These are ideal, as they have the additional advantage of encouraging social contact. Breaking out of one’s isolation can rebuild self-confidence and, even better, it can bring back joy and a renewed interest in life.

Fast FANTASTIC Fun

Tai chi is a Chinese martial art consisting of gentle movements. Physical strength is not required.

Explore nature in Surrey this winter! Grab your hat and mittens and get out to one of Surrey’s many parks this winter break.

Surrey Nature Centre at Green Timbers

Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest

14225 Green Timbers Way

2598 – 144th St (Parking lot on 24th Ave, just east of 144th St)

If it snows, be sure to head to the Surrey Nature Centre at Green Timbers. This park is one of the highest points of elevation in Surrey, which means it usually gets the most snow. Bring your toboggan to slide down the big hill, and walk the nearby forest trails.

A rainy winter day is the perfect time to enjoy a walk in this forest oasis. The branches of the hundred year old native evergreen trees provide plenty of shelter for you and wildlife. Keep your eyes open for black-tailed deer that have been spotted here throughout the year.

Blackie Spit Park and Mud Bay Park Surrey Lake Park 7500 – 152nd St

There are four different types of habitat in Surrey Lake Park – lake, meadow, marsh, and forest. Bring your binoculars and walk the short loop to see how the plants and animals of these different settings are handling winter.

3136 McBride Ave and 13030 – 48th Ave

Hundreds of thousands of migratory birds stop at Surrey’s shoreline parks to rest and refuel before continuing south, and many of them stay for the winter. Visit Blackie Spit Park or Mud Bay Park, both part of the Boundary Bay “Important Bird Area”, to see

what all the fuss is about.

Three organ-transplant recipients and one organ donor handdelivered some Christmas cheer in the form of big tins of popcorn to Langley Memorial Hospital’s physicians and nurses in the Intensive Care Unit and operating room last week. “We try to go to as many hospitals as we can this time of year,” said heart-transplant recipient Kristy Coldwell. “They may lose a patient here and those persons’ organs may save a life somewhere else. We want to acknowledge the work they do.” The 30-year-old Cloverdale woman received her new heart at the age of 17 after having congenital heart failure and three surgeries to keep her alive.  “I’m getting married in June, I’m working. There’s a lot of rejection medication we have to take but we aren’t complaining. It’s amazing to have the 12 years I’ve had.” Coldwell was team captain for “Operation Popcorn.” The group said it’s important to let the doctors and nurses see the “living results” of all their hard work. “A group like this shows them the work they do saves lives. At LMH, they deal with the tragic

That’s how many more transplants have taken place in such a short time. For double-lung transplant recipient Darvy Culleton, 35, this time of year is extra special, but not because it’s Christmas. “I had my transplant, Dec. 19, 2006,” said the Coquitlam resident. He was born with cystic fibrosis. Now he is breathing bet-

ter and enjoying life. Don Campbell, 46, is on his third kidney transplant, but this one has “worked the best,” he said. He has participated in Operation Popcorn six times because he feels it is that important to let doctors know the important work they do. Todd Reid, 36, gave his kidney to his bestfriend of 20 years on July 6, 2010. “He was dying. It was a nobrainer. I’d do it again. Ten people were tested and I was a match,” he said. Reid lost his mom the year prior to him donating his kidney. She died waiting for a liver, he said. To register to be an organ donor or to find out more go to transplant.bc.ca or go to the Facebook page.

Children’s entertainer to perform at Coast Capital Playhouse

Foote set to get toes tapping Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Norman Foote claims that developing a sense of humour was the only logical response possible to his full name: Norman Mervyn Barrington-Foote. “I must have been a very hard labour – my parents punished me at birth,” quipped the Junowinning singer and songwriter, who will perform his fast-paced, family-friendly show Jan 4 at 3 p.m. at Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd., presented by Peninsula Productions. The lengthy moniker actually reflects an old country heritage – his great grandmother was a lady-in-waiting to the British royal family, and a great grandfather, Charles Barrington-Foote, was very much involved in military music in royal circles in the early part of the 20th century. “But my granddad came to Canada in 1906 – he didn’t want that kind of life,” said Foote, a long-time North Vancouver resident who grew up in Whonnock and Squamish. His parents also made another important practical contribution to his entertainment career, aside from providing a genetic predisposition towards music – when he turned 11 they bought him his first guitar at Sears.

Foote has made good use of such gifts, creating a niche all his own – family entertainer – out of an early love for musicians like the Beatles, Elvis and Hank Williams. Songs like the title number from his most recent CD, I Love My Shirt (which landed him the Juno in 2010) – not to mention a fondness for physical humour, puppets and wild props in his live shows – might seem to brand him solely a children’s entertainer. But, in truth, his appealingly catchy songs work just as well with adults as children because of an innate musical quality that takes them far beyond the limited realm of novelty. “I try to entertain myself first of all; find stuff that works for me,” he said. “Some stuff has across-the-board appeal, but it’s a funny demographic. It don’t think it’s fair to call my my songs children’s music, because there’s a lot of integrity to them, as well as clever hooks and clever lyrics.” He describes himself as “blessed” because he’s always loved the aspect of performing for and ‘hooking’ an audience – whether its five year-olds or their grandparents. His songs are “a fusion of styles – comedic, folky, pop. Like anyone else who’s an artist, you’re

always looking for something else you can use. “Most songs on the radio are about love gone wrong, or some kind of love relationship. But I write about love for other things, like a grandfather clock, or yard sales, a bear or a dog – or love for a shirt. When you open up the envelope there’s so much you could write about. “I do songwriting workshops and I tell people ‘you can write a song about anything.’ But you don’t have a lot of that going on nowadays.” When he was 20 years old, he paid a lot of dues as a performer during extended trips to New Zealand and Australia. While busking Down Under, he met and formed a working partnership with a puppeteer, and it sent him in a whole new direction as a musician. “I found I could really respond to that. Up to that time, I’d really only worked in hotels and bars, but now I heard all these kids laughing and and enjoying themselves. I’ve never stopped wanting to hear that laughter. You can’t really fake it, you really have to have the heart for this kind of thing.” Tickets ($10) are available from www.whiterockplayers.ca and 604-536-7535.

uestion: I started dating a man about a year ago and moved in with him about six months ago. I have always been a regarded as very attractive and I have had my choice of men in my lifetime and I therefore have not taken any steps to make sure that I am secure in my older years. I therefore have no assets except very good looks and great personality. I have been pressing my man to marry me because I understand that if we become married I will own half his assets as long as I stay with him for a reasonable period of time. I’m right aren’t I? nswer: you are right for the time being, but you are wrong if the proposed family law legislation is passed on March 18, 2013. That legislation is a sea change from the 1978 legislation, and if you divorce your proposed husband gets to keep the assets that he brought into the marriage.

Polar Bear Paddle set for White Rock Beach

Paddleboarders get set to ring in the New Year Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

White Rock beach will be busier than ever on New Years’ Day, as the first-ever Polar Bear Paddle is set to hit the waters of Semiahmoo Bay. The paddleboard event will take place on the morning of Jan. 1 near the west-beach boat launch, just down the beach from where revellers will be dipping into the icy water as part of the Polar Bear Swim. The paddleboard race, which begins at 11:30 a.m., is being put together by the same group – Sundog Adventure Sports –  that hosted the Semiahmoo SUP (Stand-up Paddleboard) Classic in August, as part of the Spirit of the Sea festival. And though the Jan. 1 race won’t be nearly as warm as the popular August event, organizer Scott Robertson doesn’t think the chilly temperatures will deter many.

File photo

Paddleboarders head out into Semiahmoo Bay during the Sundog Classic in August. Already, a handful of people have pre-registered, but he expects many others to show up the day of the race. “In August, we only had 15 pre-registered and ended up with 60,” Robertson explained. “So I think it’ll be similar. It’s going to be good, a lot of fun.

“The (August) race went so well, doing this was kind of a no-brainer.” The course for the Polar Bear event will be about four-km, Robertson said, or half the distance of the Spirit of the Sea race. He figures it will take paddlers about half an hour, from start to finish.

On the shore, there will be plenty of options to keep warm, for paddlers and spectators alike. There will be heated tents on the beach, and hot chocolate and coffee will be served. There will also be paddleboard equipment demos and prize draws – the grand prize is a trip for two to Las Vegas. Robertson said the event is a good one for both experienced paddle boarders and newcomers interested in taking up the sport – or for those people who’d rather ring in 2013 on the water, rather than in it. “I’ve only done a polar bear swim once, just so I could say that I’d done it, but that was enough for me,” he laughed, adding that he hoped to take part in the Jan. 1 paddle if his organizational responsibilities allow time for it.

Eagles set to return to ice After a 12-day break for Christmas, during which members of the Surrey Eagles scattered across the continent to spent the holidays with family, the team has reconvened for games this weekend. The Eagles play tomorrow, Dec. 28, at home against the Chilliwack Chiefs, and Saturday, the team travels down the highway to Chilliwack for a rematch. Both games start at 7 p.m. Then, completing the three-games-in-threenights stretch, the Eagles will head to Coquitlam’s

Poirer Sports and Leisure Centre Sunday for a 2 p.m. game against the Coquitlam Express. The Eagles will be looking to gain ground on the first-place Chiefs. Surrey sits third in the BC Hockey League’s Mainland Division, seven points back of Chilliwack. The Express, meanwhile, are just four points back of Surrey. Prior to Christmas, the Eagles had been struggling on the ice, going 1-3 in the two weekends before the break. - Nick Greenizan

Schools ‘all made a big splash’ › from page 39 before for basketball,” said EMS coach Christopher Finlay. The school bands even performed, too – at Earl Marriott Thursday, a group of musicians set up just outside the gym. “The schools all made a big splash. It was nice to play in front of crowds like that,” said Elgin Park coach Dan Walker. “Everybody seemed to really have a great time.” All three senior boys teams used to play for local bragging rights in an annual mini-

At the Elgin Park-hosted game Dec. 19, Walker said his school’s junior teams came out to watch, as did many of the younger students. “I thought it was nice for the younger kids to be able to see the seniors play. They probably hear about the team, but don’t get the chance to actually watch the older kids very often, or at all,” he said. All three teams are now on a holiday break and return to league action the first week of January.
