Arrests in time for Valentine’s Day for ‘most wanted’ couple

Facing off in front of familiar fans Surrey’s Brenden Dillon to play first NHL game in Vancouver by Gary Ahuja FRIDAY NIGHT will be a “dream

come true” for hockey player Brenden Dillon. “I definitely have the 15th circled on my calendar,” he admitted. “It should be pretty fun.” Dillon, a 22-yearold from Surrey, was referring to the Dallas Stars’ upcoming visit Brenden to Rogers Arena on Dillon Feb. 15. “You grow up watching the Canucks and going to a couple of games, and seeing how special that was, see all the guys out on the ice,” he said in a phone interview on Jan. 31. “So it will definitely be a dream come true being out there.”

Having a ball for B.C.’s first Family Day

Katelyn Watt, 4, catches a ball thrown by her father Spencer in the gym of the South Surrey Recreation Centre on Saturday during free Healthy Hearts Family Day activities. The new statutory holiday was Feb. 11.

SURREY RCMP may have ruined Valentine’s Day plans for a couple who made their “Top 10 Most Wanted” list two weeks ago. Mounties have arrested Lisa Karon Shaw, 42, and her Chilliwack boyfriend, Ian Mountain, 27. She faces charges of breach of probation and driving while prohibited, Karon Shaw and he is looking at charges of possession of stolen property, dangerous driving, and possession of break-in instruments. On Jan. 31, the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT) released its annual Top 10 Most Wanted list of suspected car thieves, and five of those named are from Surrey.

Jubilee medal recipient facing weapons charges Newton-North Delta MP Jinny Sims says she was unaware of Maninder Gill’s legal trouble by Sheila Reynolds NDP MP JiNNy SiMS says she didn’t

know about Radio India manager Maninder Gill’s upcoming trial on weapons charges when she awarded him a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal on the weekend. In a statement, Sims, MP for Newton-North Delta, she said she now recognizes the seriousness of the crime Gill is accused of committing and apologized to anyone who was offended that he received a medal. She added that “the Canadian legal system treats everyone fairly by ensuring that each accused person is considered to be innocent until they are found to be guilty in a court of law” and said she wouldn’t comment further until the matter had gone through the courts. Gill, managing director at Radio India, was ordered last March to stand trial in B.C. Supreme Court on a series of weapons-related offences stemming from an August 2010 dispute outside the Guru Nanak Sikh Temple that left another man with a bullet wound to the leg. He says he’s deserving of the jubilee medal for helping raise millions of dollars for charity Maninder Gill through his radio station over the years. Sims presented the awards to about 30 community members at a ceremony Sunday (Feb. 10) at the India Jinny Sims Banquet hall in Surrey. MPs across the country have held similar award presentations, with about 60,000 of the medals being distributed Canada-wide. Gill’s next court appearance on the charges is June 24. — with files from CBC

Police: Nab five of ‘Top 10 Most Wanted’ From page 1 On Wednesday (Feb. 13), police announced they had nabbed five of them. Shaw has been released from custody and will appear in court on Feb. 21, but Mountain remains in jail and is scheduled to appear in court today (Feb. 14). If she wants to, Shaw will be able to see him briefly from the public viewing area of the courtroom.

Police say she would be allowed to bring Mountain a card for Valentine’s Day, but chocolates or any other food items could be restricted. “Substances may be an issue,” said RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet, adding “I think there’s a process in place for the exchange of greeting cards or letters. “It would be fitting – love knows no prison,” Paquet said. Of the three other “Top 10” suspects arrested, two are from Surrey.

Graham Arthur Hunter, 32, has been arrested on a warrant for breach of probation, while Travis Christopher McKay (wanted by Delta Police and Surrey RCMP) has also been arrested for breach of probation. Coquitlam’s Anthony Nicholas Baird was also arrested for breach of probation. Others still wanted include: • William John Walsh, 31; • Richard James Mantler, 41; • Cory Todd Siebolts, 25; • Robert Fred Basil, 33;

• Anthony Nicholas Baird, 19.

RCMP make arrest in Surrey sex assault

by Kevin Diakiw

Surrey rCMP have arrested a man they believe is

responsible for a sex assault almost two weeks ago in North Surrey. A 21-year-old man has been arrested and is facing charges related to a Feb. 1 assault on a woman in the City Centre. Waheed Faiyaz has been charged with sexual assault causing bodily harm, utter threats to cause death, and overcoming resistance to commission of offence. Faiyaz was identified through a combination of a good description given by the victim, surveillance video, and the recovery of physical evidence.

Premier launches LNG ‘prosperity fund’

Throne speech kicks off pre-election legislature session with prediction of $100-billion resource boom by Tom Fletcher Premier Christy

Clark kicked off the pre-election legislature session Tuesday with a pledge to establish a new fund from natural gas exports to support social programs and pay down debt. The main purpose of the “British Columbia Prosperity Fund” will be to pay down debt starting in 2017 when the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities begins to ship LNG from the northern coast to Asian markets. It will be funded by a tax on LNG exports, as well as

gas producers’ corporate taxes and natural gas royalty revenues. The B.C. fund would receive an estimated $100 billion from LNG revenues over 30 years, based on an assumption of five LNG production facilities exporting gas from the Kitimat-Prince Rupert region. The plan was presented in the throne speech by Lt.-Gov. Judith Guichon to open a fourweek legislature session leading up to the May 14 B.C. election.

‘Heavy’ heart for athlete after IOC wrestling decision

Grateful for a few good MLAs

lIke many wrestling fans and enthusiasts all over the world, I was sorely

troubled and shocked by the news that the executive committee of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) had voted to axe wrestling from the 2020 Olympic Games. The rationale for the exclusion at this point is unclear and immaterial. Wrestling is the oldest sport known to man. Wrestling has been featured in every Olympic Games since the modern Olympics in 1896. Every nation and tribe all over the world has some variant of wrestling. At every world championships I have attended and watched since the 1990s, we regularly have over 70 nations in attendance. Over 40 nations qualified for the London Olympics. About 29 different countries won medals at the London 2012 Olympics. How many other sports can boast of such statistics? Wrestling is a relatively cheap sport to compete in. It is relatively safe compared to other sports, and rules regulating the sport are generally easy to understand. For me, the question is not why wrestling should not be axed from the 2020 Olympic roster, rather, it should be about how many other sports in the world are as popular, have the same reach in virtually every nation, and are as accessible as wrestling. The only solace one has is that this is merely a recommendation from the IOC executive committee. The IOC general assembly will have to ratify the decision later this year. My heart is heavy because in my mind, the Olympic movement, by this proposal, has surrendered the original Olympic ideals of amateurism for commercialism and corporate interests. I hope IOC members from every wrestling nation will vote against the proposal of the executive committee. More than that, it is my hope that wrestling will rightfully be positioned as one of 10 core sports in the Olympic sports roster. Daniel Igali 2000 Olympic freestyle wrestling gold medalist

Remember history Jobs plan not working

I’m nOt old enough to remember the 1990s. But I know

many adults who do remember that time and how badly the NDP mismanaged the provincial economy. They also remember how Adrian Dix was fired as Glen Clark’s top aide after it was discovered he had forged a memo and then lied about it to the RCMP. What surprises me is that so many people my age are unaware of what went on in B.C. during the 1990s. That lack of awareness could have devastating consequences for this province, and for unwary young people like myself, if the NDP is elected to ruin the province all over again. Failing to learn the lessons of the recent past will doom us to the same consequences suffered in the 1990s if we do not wake up and heed the warning signs that are there to be seen. Donald Leung, Burnaby

statIstICs Canada announced the

loss of almost 16,000 jobs in January in B.C. In particular, most of these losses were borne by women over age 25 with part-time jobs in caregiving and social assistance, two areas that are funded by the B.C. government. This is the reality behind the endless TV advertising by the B.C. Liberals in their pre-election campaign under the pretense that “it’s all about jobs.” In reality, ever since Christy Clark launched her “BC Jobs Plan” almost 18 months ago, the B.C. private sector has lost nearly 40,000 jobs, including many in the construction industry, which is the largest

contributor to the B.C. Liberals’ election fund. The result is that B.C. has the thirdworst job growth in Canada in the last 12 months. The B.C. Liberals are obsessed with presenting an image that they are better “stewards of the economy” than the NDP – but to do this they have chosen to sell off B.C.’s assets, make deals with Chinese and foreign mining companies, slash health funding and increase MSP premiums, etc. This is not economic management – it is a scorched-earth policy to keep their own well-paid jobs at any cost (to the rest of us).   Herb Spencer, Surrey

It Is hardly surprising that the call to “start fixing B.C.’s democratic deficit” has come not from the government or the official Opposition, but from three independent MLAs – Vicki Huntington, John van Dongen and Bob Simpson. This is to be expected because many of the current rules and practices concerning governance are designed to favour the political parties, not the citizens of our province. We would all benefit from changes such as moving the date of the provincial election to autumn so the government is less able to use the spring budget to influence the vote. Allowing more free votes for MLAs could give them the courage and freedom to vote according to their conscience and the will of their constituents. Having Elections BC run leadership contests would help ensure the party would elect a capable leader. Most of the six items on the independents’ agenda have been suggested in the past, but neither the Liberals or the NDP have embraced them. The track record of political leaders in B.C. over the past two decades is dismal. Is it because of their resistance to constructive change that so many premiers, beginning with Bill Vander Zalm and Rita Johnston, have fallen on the ash heap of B.C. politics? Certainly it seems that the Liberals and the NDP don’t have solutions or the will to implement them. It is uncertain whether the independents can bring about change. At the very least, though, we have to give them credit for trying.

Region hospital congestion rates improve Health authority reports less hallway medicine, C. difficile by Jeff Nagel

Among recent improvements, all regional hospitals are now beating a target of having more than 90 per cent of hip surgeries performed within 48 hours of the patient being admitted.

A six-month drive to

cut hospital congestion in Fraser Health has led to a significant drop in patients being treated in hospital hallways or other overflow areas. The previous average of 100 admitted patients at any time getting hallway medicine in overflow areas has been cut to 43, and they’ve been eliminated entirely at some hospitals, according to a health authority report on the improvements. Former health minister Mike de Jong directed Fraser Health last June to pursue improvements on five fronts after the report of the Fraser Health Congestion Review Panel flagged ongoing high levels of congestion that many staff considered intractable. One of the biggest gains reported was a cut by nearly half in the rate of C. difficile infections in area hospitals, attributed to enhanced cleaning and

hand-washing strategies. Alarmingly high rates of the bacteria-spread illness had prompted the health region to send roving “super clean” teams through six hospitals in early 2012. The congestioncontrol exercise didn’t reach all of its targets. It succeeded in increasing the percentage of admitted ER patients getting a hospital bed within 10 hours to 58 per cent – up from 51 per cent last year but not yet consistently at a target of at least 61 per cent. All hospitals are now

beating a target of having more than 90 per cent of hip surgeries performed within 48 hours of the patient being admitted. “We cannot take our foot off the gas,” the report says, cautioning that “there will continue to be pressure on access to services and from time to time there will likely be congestionrelated events.” Fraser Health previously estimated the region will be short 1,100 beds by 2020 but that study is being updated to recalculate expected demand for acute care beds. The 2,200 acute care

beds across 12 hospitals are routinely full. But the 2014 opening of the new $512-million expansion at Surrey Memorial will add 150 more beds. The province has also committed to a huge redevelopment of Royal Columbian Hospital and other expansions or redesigns are under consideration. “It is clearly understood that expanding hospitals is not the sole solution to meeting increasing demand,” the report said, adding there’s a critical need to increase communitybased services. The report shows the

average length of stay of a patient is down from 8.4 to 8.1 days but not yet at a target of 7.9. Some of the gains were made through methods such as having home care staff at emergency departments intercept incoming elderly patients and

redirect them back home, provided it’s appropriate and sufficient home support can be dispatched. “When we stopped caring for patients in the south hallway [at Surrey Memorial] and I saw that the number of admitted patients

in Emergency had been reduced in half, I knew we were doing something right,” said Martha Cloutier, Fraser Health’s emergency clinical operations director for Surrey Memorial, Delta and Peace Arch hospitals.

A Surrey womAn accused of

assuming a resident’s identity and using her debit card to purchase a car is scheduled to appear in Vancouver Provincial Court next week on multiple charges. White Rock RCMP Const. Janelle Shoihet said that a woman arrested in Burnaby on Jan. 15 has been connected to identity-theft incidents in Surrey, White Rock, Burnaby and New Westminster between Dec. 20 and Jan. 15.

“(The perpetrator) goes into the bank using the victim’s ID, poses as the victim and takes over the bank card, then uses the debit card to buy herself things,” Shoihet said. The White Rock incident occurred Dec. 21, when the debit card of a woman who works in the city was compromised. Her identity was then used two days later to facilitate a car loan at a Surrey dealership. The fraud has been “very stressful” for the victim, Shoihet said, explaining the woman had to deal

with multiple agencies in the aftermath of the theft, including ICBC and TransUnion. “That’s a lot to go through. For seven years, they put a flag on your (credit) file.” Shoihet said she connected the Burnaby suspect to the local file through a phone number that linked to an alias of a woman known by police. Laura Kozinoski, 43, is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 20 charged with identity theft and fraud over $5,000.

A plan for Grandview Neighbours have until Feb. 28 to give feedback by Alex Browne More than 150 people

came to examine maps and information panels – and ask questions – at a public open house on the Grandview Heights 4 Neighborhood Concept Plan at Cloverdale’s Shannon Hall last week. According to Stantec Consulting’s John Steil – one of those busy answering questions from the public during the opening hour of the meeting – the mood Wednesday (Feb. 6) evening was more curious than combative. “For some people, it’s an introduction,” he said, noting the proposed plan for the 201-hectare (497-acre) area, stretching from 176 to 184 Streets between 20 and 32 Avenues is “quite different from other neighbourhoods.” This was the second public open house on the now-revised plan, he said (the first was in May 2011), and an opportunity to show a draft “preferred landuse plan” for the area – developed as a result of feedback from residents and input from the

Because of the environmental sensitivity of the area – which abuts the Agricultural Land Reserve and is home to wildlife, stream networks and acres of protected trees – the plan calls for the preservation of a wildlife corridor and

hub, plus provision of parks, watercourse areas and other green space, in addition to careful transitioning from high-density residential development to low density. Cost of acquiring the wildlife corridor and the other green space has been estimated at $45 million, which city staff hope to pay for with a levy for builders of between $9,600 and $14,000 per dwelling. That aspect of the plan has already met with positive reaction from Deb Jack, presi-

dent of Surrey Environmental Partners (SEP). SEP member Steve Chitty was one of a number of people at the open house who live outside the area but are curious about the precedents Grandview 4 may set for future development. While he notes the plan has come a long way in addressing environmental concerns, there must still be questions about what this level of development will mean for the area and for Surrey as a whole. “I’m concerned about development out this way and what kind of transportation will support it,” he said. “There’s obviously some big money behind it.” Bhargav Parghi, a senior planner with the city, said Friday the meeting went well. “There were not too many big questions that emerged,” he said. Residents have until Feb. 28 to return feedback forms distributed at the open house, or voice comments and concerns through the city website, www. surrey.ca/GHNCP4

harbour traffic jams to arise from a major increase in the number of oil tankers loading from an expanded Trans Mountain pipeline. Kinder Morgan Canada announced in mid-January it has enough committed shippers to justify a larger pipeline expansion to a capacity of 890,000 barrels per day. That’s expected to bring up to 34 oil tankers per month, up from about 25 previously forecast and around five per month right now. Port Metro Vancouver harbour master Yoss Leclerc said the project would, if it advances, undergo a comprehensive review of harbour transit needs. But he said it doesn’t appear the new size of the proposed pipeline – bringing up to 400 tankers a year – would tie up too many anchorages and cause a shortage of space for other cargo ships. “Looking at what we saw from Kinder Morgan, I don’t see any foreseeable issue in terms of anchorages

or where to put them.” Nor did he expect harbour traffic restrictions to be too onerous for other users of the waterway. He was responding after Burnaby NDP MP Kennedy Stewart suggested an “oil export only port” could be the end result if Kinder Morgan continues to upsize the pipeline project. “There will be a choke point in Burrard Inlet where you have so many tankers you can’t have any more traffic,” Stewart said. Stewart argues Kinder Morgan may expand the planned line further – to a million barrels per day and beyond – and at that point there will be enormous pressure to dredge the Second Narrows to allow much larger oil tankers. The current Aframax size tankers carry up to 650,000 barrels per day, but due to draft restrictions in the harbour they are only loaded 75 to 80 per cent full so they sit no deeper than 13 metres in the water. “They are going to bring the same size of vessels that are coming today,” Leclerc said.

Tests show smart meters accurate, BC Hydro says Cases of higher bills mostly due to human error: Officials by Jeff Nagel BC Hydro officials say it’s

extremely unlikely that smart meters are driving up the power bills of some households this winter. Smart meter program spokesperson Cindy Verschoor said testing has proven the new wireless meters to be extremely accurate. “Last year we had 169 customers who were absolutely convinced their meters were not reading accurately,” she said, adding Hydro pulled them out and had them tested at Measurement Canada’s facility in Burnaby. “Every single one of them came back as accurate.” Anyone can request such a test and watch as it’s conducted – the homeowner has to pay $100 if it turns out to be accurate, while Hydro covers the cost if it’s outside the accepted one-per-cent margin of error. In the last 18 months since smart meter installation began, Verschoor said, there have been six cases of smart meters malfunctioning, leading Hydro to adjust four bills downward and increase the other two. “It’s extremely rare,” she said, noting 95 per cent of BC Hydro’s 1.9 million customers now have smart meters. Verschoor spoke after Cloverdale’s Vernon Keller complained his bill doubled in the latest winter period now that he has a smart

meter. He said he’d go back to an may face a large catch-up bill later. analog meter if he could. The third scenario, she said, is Keller said a friend with a simple human error by Hydro staff camper plugged in to his home reading the smart meter manually and while he doubted it could but transposing digits or otherwise drive up his consumption draentering the wrong data. matically, Hydro officials suggest Hydro expects that problem it could. will end once all smart meter data Verschoor couldn’t speak to the is sent wirelessly rather than via specifics of the case. human readers.

The ConservaTive federal government is pledging new justice reforms to indefinitely lock up highly dangerous mentally ill offenders who were found not responsible for their crimes. Prime Minister Stephen Harper made the announcement Friday in Burnaby alongside Darcie Clark, whose three children were killed five years ago in Merritt by her deranged ex-husband Allan Schoenborn. The Not Criminally Responsible Reform Act tabled by the government tightens provisions for the release of offenders such as Schoenborn.

or other individuals, and by ordering them to stay away from certain places. A coalition of mental health groups urged Ottawa to carefully consider the need to promote the recovery of mentally disordered offenders while pursuing public safety aims. “These changes will unnecessarily heighten the public’s fears, increase negative stigma around mental illness and ultimately undermine the reintegration of (not criminally responsible offenders) without increasing public safety,” said Schizophrenia Society of Canada CEO Chris Summerville. He said offenders declare not criminally responsible account for just 0.001 per cent of all criminal charges and they have a far lower rate of recidivism – around five per cent – compared to more than 40 per cent for regular convicts serving federal time. SFU restorative justice expert Brenda Morrison said the legislation puts more focus on victims instead of offenders, but much will depend on how the government implements it.

Onni brings mix of homes to False Creek

Block 100 a taste of waterfront living Onni is bringing a taste of waterfront living to its newest development, Block 100. With 231 homes, Block 100 will include a mix of condominiums and townhomes, with a variety of floorplans. The development consists of three blocks: Quebec, Centre and Main. Located in southeast False Creek, Block 100 is perfectly situated for homeowners of all demographics. Whether you want to walk to Rogers Arena to catch a Vancouver Canucks game or grab a water taxi to Granville Island, you’re just minutes away from everything you can imagine. The Seawall is right outside, and the Central Valley Greenway begins on your

doorstep. Wide-plank laminate flooring throughout the main living areas is standard, while stainless-steel appliances and composite countertops with a breakfast bar in most homes are convenient and modern. The white gloss backsplash cabinetry offers plenty of storage. The bathrooms are luxurious and soothing, with heated porcelain tile floors, a linear-style deep soaker tub with a tiled front and a frameless glass shower and door with mosaic-tiled base and high-gloss wall tile. Homes start at $268,900. For more information visit onni.com/block100 or call 604-682-8801.

This year the GVHBA has also included a People’s Choice Award, which will allow people to vote for their favourite new or renovated project. There are 19 projects up for the award.

The winners will be announced at the awards gala on April 20. For more information, to see a full list of finalists and to vote for the People’s Choice Award, visit www.ovationawards.ca.

Dillon: Tale of a classic late-bloomer From page 1

The day before speaking with Black Press, Dillon had registered his first NHL fight, when he scrapped with Detroit’s Jordin Tootoo. And while that may have been a milestone in Dillon’s brief NHL career, he one-upped it the very next game against Phoenix when he registered an assist, scored his first career goal, and then completed the Gordie Howe hat trick with a scrap. And fighting might be an apt description for Dillon’s journey to the NHL. “Looking back, I have always had that chip on my shoulder,” he said. “Wanting to prove people wrong and just show that I can be a player one day.” Dillon’s tale is of the classic latebloomer. A defenceman in the Surrey Minor Hockey Association, Dillon was bypassed in the Western Hockey League’s bantam draft. When Dillon was 15 he spent the summer training with Impact Hockey Development, a Langley-based program run by Tim Preston and Tyler Chambers. “They did a really good job that sum-

“It is pretty tough to put into words,” he recalled about what he felt that night. “You think about from when I first put on my skates to play in the NHL, the best league in the world and the best players in the world, it was a dream come true and probably something I will never forget.” He played nearly 20 minutes that night, registering a game-high six shots, four hits and three blocked shots. But for this lockout-shortened season, Dillon has been with the big club from day one and making an impact. He is paired with Stephane Robidas, a 35-year-old in his 12th NHL season and with more than 800 games on his resume. Dillon has also been living with Robidas. “He has got all the tools you can ask for in a defenceman,” Robidas said on the Stars website. “He’s got the size, he’s got the speed, he can move the puck, he can shoot it, he can be physical and he can fight. “You can pretty much throw him in any situation. He’s got the whole package.” See PLAYER / Page 34

The game was part of Tessa’s Tournament at Holy Cross high school, named after Tessa Beauchamp, a member of the Crusaders basketball team who lost a battle with cancer a year ago. Games were played at the Grade 8, Junior and Senior levels. The Crusaders, currently the top-ranked team in B.C. at the Senior AA level, defeated the Wellington Wildcats 81-46, Vernon 73-40, and the Sa-Hali Sabres 86-43. BOAZ JOSEPH / THE LEADER

Player: Has ‘all the tools you can ask for in a defenceman’ From page 32 Through the season’s first 11 games, Dillon has two points and is a plus-one in 18:26 of ice time per game. His ice time is third on the team. Dillon said he never had a problem staying positive. “I have a good group of people around me, from my trainers, to my parents and coaches, who really mentored me to have the ‘don’t quit’ attitude,” he said. “That is something that has stuck with me: hard work will always help you, especially at this level. Guys are so talented, so good, any extra work or mental toughness or whatever you can use to help yourself, gives you an advantage.” Preston, who talks to Dillon two or three times a week, will be at Rogers Arena on Friday watching the game.

“Just watching him go through the ups and downs and growing pains of being in hockey… he was a kid who never stopped trying, never stopped believing in himself,” Preston said. “He just loved the game and would do whatever it took to improve and develop. “The biggest thing is he never stopped believing in himself and neither did his parents.” And Preston says that Dillon serves as a great example for both young players and their parents. Parents and players need to understand that just

His father Edward is a doctor at Surrey Memorial Hospital, and his mom Deborah is a high school teacher at L.A. Matheson Secondary. They liked the fact that for each year Dillon played in the WHL, he gets money towards studying at a post-secondary institution.

Eagles flying high in first place BCHL team extends lead to eight points over Chilliwack by Rick Kupchuk In the race for first place in

the BC Hockey League’s Mainland Division, the Surrey Eagles have put some serious distance between themselves and the Chilliwack Chiefs. What was a three-point edge for the Eagles a week ago has now grown to eight, with both the Chiefs and Surrey having just eight games to play. The Eagles played three times last week, earning five of a possible six points. Wrapped around a 3-2 overtime loss to the Coquitlam Express on the road Saturday night, Surrey posted wins over the Prince George Spruce Kings (5-2) Friday night and the Langley Rivermen (4-1) Sunday afternoon. Both victories came at the South Surrey Arena. The near-perfect weekend left the Eagles with a 30-12-2-4 (won-lost-tied-overtime loss) record.

play goals to complete the scoring. Best and Adam Tambellini drew a pair of assists each. The weekend began with Shaw putting up three points in the win over Prince George. The 20-year-old from Ottawa

assisted on Tambellini’s power play goal in the first period which broke a 1-1 tie, then drew an assist on a shorthanded effort from Brett Mulcahy. He netted his goal with one second remaining in the game, scoring into an empty net. Tommy Stipancik, also while shorthanded, and Joel Gaudet were the other Eagles goal scorers. Saturday in Coquitlam, the Eagles couldn’t hold on to the 2-0 lead they took into the third period. Brady Shaw in the first period and Colton Mackie with a shorthanded goal in the second gave the Eagles a two-goal cushion. Coquitlam scored twice in a 48-second span early in the third period to force overtime, and got the winner in the second minute of the second overtime period. The Eagles will play twice next weekend, hosting the Nanaimo Clippers Friday night at 7 p.m. in the South Surrey Arena, before traveling to Chilliwack to play the Chiefs Saturday evening.

In need of a pair of victories on the Island Kwantlen Eagles men’s basketball team a game out of a playoff position by Rick Kupchuk Staring up at three

teams chasing the final two playoff positions, the Kwantlen Eagles will likely need to win twice on Vancouver Island to earn a return trip two weeks later. The men’s basketball team is 6-13 (won-lost)

in the PACWEST (Pacifc Western Athletic Assocaition), tied for seventh place with the columbia Bible College Bearcats, and just a game back of the Capilano Blues and Camosun Chargers. The top six teams advance to the PACWEST playoffs in Victoria Feb. 28 to Mar. 3

After a split in their final two home games last weekend at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, the Eagles will close out the regular season with games tomorrow (Friday) in Victoria against the Chargers and Saturday afternoon in Nanaimo with the Vancouver Island University

Mariners. Kwantlen stayed a game out of a playoff position buy stopping the Douglas Royals 80-65 Saturday night, paced by a trio of Surrey residents. Aaron Ram was the top scorer with 24 points, adding five rebounds and five assists.

Ali Bosir netted 16 points and also had 21 rebounds and six steals, while Nii Engmann chipped in with 15 points, five assists and four rebounds. Tristan Gruenthaler also scored in double digits, finishing with 11 points while grabbing seven rebounds.

“I knew this rival game would be very intense,” said head coach Stefon Wilson. “I just wanted my guys to use this energy in a positive way. We defended and rebounded the ball very well and I was very happy to get a win on the last home game of the season.” One night earlier, the Eagles came up short against an 18-1 Langara team in a 100-75 loss. Gruenthaler, a second-year forward from Abbotsford, had 19 points and 13 rebounds, while Bosir had 16 points and 16 rebounds. Engmann contributed 14 points and four rebounds. “When playing a team as talented as Langara, you cannot have 26 turnovers,” said WIlson. “I liked the effort and thought that we played hard. But we will have to play a lot smarter in our final (two) games.” Kwantlen’s women’s team has assured itself of a playoff berth, despite

two losses last weekend. With a 9-10 record, they are two games ahead of both Camosun and Langara, but have won the season series against both teams. Kwantlen fell 68-62 to the Falcons in overtime, with Haeley Williams leading the way of the home side with 19 points and nine rebounds. Amber-Lee Kavanagh added 12 points, and also collected 13 rebounds. Other standouts included Jessica Villadiego with seven points, eight steals and six assists. “We came out flat and got down early,” said Eagles head coach, Dan Nayebzadeh. “Langara came out with intensity right from the start.” Kwantlen also lost Saturday, falling 54-45 to the Douglas Royals. McPhail had 15 points and seven rebounds. The women’s team will also be on Vancouver Island for their final two games, needing one win to clinch fifth place.

an overtime loSS on home ice Saturday night may have cost the North Delta Devils a third-place finish in the Tom Shaw Conference of the Pacific Junior Hockey League. A 4-3 loss to the North Vancouver Wolf Pack dropped the Devils three points back of the winners, with each club having two games to play. North Vancouver was the dominant team throughout Saturday’s game, outshooting North Delta in all three periods as well as overtime, finishing with a 38-21 advantage. Cloverdale native Braden Krogfoss made 18 saves in the Wolf Pack goal for the win, while Bryson McKinnon made his first start of the season in the North Delta goal, making 34 saves. The Wolf Pack went up 1-0 eight minutes into the game. Joshua Smith replied for North Delta three minutes later, leaving the teams tied 1-1 after the first period. Colin Catchpole scored on a penalty shot to give the Devil’s a lead in the second period, and Max Fiedler made it 3-1 72 seconds later. The Wolf Pack rallied to tie the game with a pair of goals while on the power play. Ram Brar, a Surrey native, tallied in the second period then Cody Gordon knotted the score with less than five minutes to play to force overtime. North Vancouver got the winner with two minutes left in the second extra period. The two clubs met again last night (Wednesday) in North Vancouver, then both teams will play their final home games of the season Saturday night on home ice. The Wolf Pack will host the Delta Ice Hawks, while North Delta will face-off against the Grandview Steelers.

The nutty-gritty of great sound

The nut may not be the sexiest part of a guitar, but a good nut (see the image in the middle of the page) is critical in keeping the instrument in tune. Delta’s Graph Tech makes a number of parts (including bridges and pick-ups, below) for major guitar manufacturers in more than that 30 countries.

It took some time, but Dunwoodie, spurred by the ’80s’ popularity of the whammy bar and his own frustrations with string binding, eventually developed the first composite-material, selflubricating nut. (He recoils a bit if you call it plastic). But while the composition was slippery – five times that of graphite – it didn’t sell because it was the wrong colour. A white nut was the standard on all guitars, and Dunwoodie’s was black. It would take years of marketing, reworking formulas (eventually producing optional white nuts), investments in equipment, and more staffing to get Graph Tech into the mainstream. Year after year, Dunwoodie went to trade shows, more or less peddling his goods to manufacturers until they realized what was in front of them. The guitar builders got to know him, and musicians BOAZ JOSEPH / THE LEADER began to take notice too. Over the years, he expanded Dave Dunwoodie with a few toys in his office in Delta.

production to bridges, saddles and related string platforms, and patented designs and company sub-brands such as ResoMax, Ghost, Tusq and Nubone. “We have a computer that analyzes sound,” he says during a tour of the factory. “So we can play with the materials and see what that does for the sound of an acoustic or electric guitar. Our Tusq material actually increases the harmonics – the ear candy – by 100 per cent.” He says his String Saver line of saddles that are marketed to do as advertised – put less pressure at critical junctures at the back of a guitar, thus reducing string breakage. He also sold more than 600,000 of the new aforementioned drop-them-and-they-ting Tusq picks during the first seven months after their introduction. Most of the parts are manufactured on-site. Graph Tech recently acquired a neighbouring office, doubling their square footage. “We can switch in and out really quick,” shouts Dunwoodie, standing next to the noisy injection-moulding machine spitting out saddles for Mahalo ukuleles on the factory floor. A run of 400 saddles for one type of guitar may be followed by 20,000 nuts for another. Staff are at work as early as 5 a.m., assembling, tinkering, testing, packaging, shipping, marketing and designing new projects. Dunwoodie, who can’t avoid playing riffs on an unplugged electric guitar back in his office, says his staff have a passion for music almost as strong as he does. “We have good Christmas parties.” For more information, visit http://graphtech.com

ANNOUNCING SURREY LEADER’S MARRIAGE PROPOSAL

CONTEST WINNER! Nancy Gordon of North Delta HAS WON DINNER FOR TWO AT FRASER DOWNS THE SURREY LEADER THANKS ALL OF THE ENTRANTS FOR THEIR WONDERFUL SUBMISISONS.

“I will never forget my marriage proposal. I was invited out to dinner and almost begged off with a migraine. In the end, I was picked up promptly at 6:00 p.m. When I went outside, there was a white limousine waiting for me with a glass of champagne and a red rose inside. I’ve always been gullible, so I didn’t suspect anything other than a romantic night out. The limo took us on a tour of Stanley Park and Vancouver and eventually, we ended up at a restaurant on False Creek called “Anderson’s”. Another very special touch as my maiden name was Anderson! Once inside we were taken to a window seat and after a few minutes, a crystal vase arrived at the table with a dozen red roses in it! By now the neighboring tables were noticing that something was up. After a few minutes a magician appeared at our table. I have always been fascinated with magic, so I was very excited to take part in the table tricks. Well into the magic show, I was handed a brass ring. When the magician instructed me to open my hand, a beautiful diamond engagement ring was in my palm. I have no idea how he managed it! My boyfriend proposed and the restaurant all applauded when I said, “Yes”. It truly was a magical night that I will never forget. My husband and I are about to celebrate 20 wonderful years together and it all started off with the most romantic marriage proposal ever.” ~ Nancy Gordon
