Educators, parents, students work together to make homophobia history

District ‘closes book’ on past gay view Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Thursday was a big night for Anthony Hope. The Surrey student was on hand as school trustees gave their unanimous approval to an anti-homophobia regulation. “It’s very validating for me because it signals that the board does care about students like me and students who are LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans-

gender and questioning), or have gay or lesbian parents or gender-identity issues,” said Hope. “The board is recognizing this and saying that it’s OK.” Prior to coming out, he said, there were times he felt it was far from OK to be gay. He hated himself and was afraid, because everything he read about homosexuality seemed to be negative. But when a friend killed himself as a result of gay bashing, Hope took action. He was among a group that approached

the Surrey Board of Education a year ago, calling for the school district to establish an anti-homophobia policy. A committee of teachers, district staff, parents and students was struck and spent months forming a stand-alone regulation aimed at supporting “students, staff and community members of all sexual orientations or gender identities.” Hope said that while the subject is often an emotional one, everyone came

to the table with passion and with an open mind. He believes the regulation will spark classroom conversations and result in greater acceptance. “We’re moving forward and it’s going to counteract the history of Surrey and hopefully change the perception,” Hope said. The history he refers to goes back more than a decade – but is one that haunts the district. › see page 4

Argument reported

Discussion encouraged

Two dead in likely domestic homicide

Running afoul of bylaws Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Police are investigating a suspicious double death that took place in Newton last week. On Wednesday at about 10:30 p.m., police were called to a report of a disturbance at a home at 6773 145A St. They entered to find a South Asian couple dead. Witnesses had heard people arguing prior to the discovery of two bodies in the home, in what is believed to be a domestic homicide. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) announced Monday afternoon that the victims have been identified as Dilber Singh Atwal, 49 and Gurpreet Kaur Atwal, 30 – married since 2002. At the scene, individuals who said they knew the couple well reported there had been several instances over the past 10 years when the police had been called for complaints of a disturbance. One woman said she heard glass breaking in the house on Tuesday night, and that it was an 18-year-old son from the man’s first marriage. › see page 2

Backyard birder Kate McMaster hopes her efforts to promote small-lot chicken coops spur discussion.


A South Surrey woman working to change a city bylaw restricting the ownership of chickens to properties an acre or larger hopes that the public discussion results in more awareness on food consumption. Kate McMaster has been working with the city to change the bylaw since March, with the hopes of legalizing ownership of small-lot flocks, like the one she has on her quarter-acre lot. The longtime South Surrey resident found out about the restrictions this year after bringing three hens – two Ameraucanas and an Australorp – home from a friend’s farm in Langley. “Someone mentioned that they thought it was only legal to have chickens on acre lots,” she told Peace Arch News. “So I emailed city council right away to ask for permission to have these hens, because I didn’t want to do something illegal. “The only councillor who got back to me was Marvin Hunt, the rest pawned me off to bylaws.” Upon the realization that her three hens were technically illegal, McMaster spurred into action, creating the Surrey › see page 4

No eligibility for 16 years Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Manmeet Singh, who admitted earlier this month to the brutal daytime slaying of his estranged wife, will have no chance of parole for 16 years. On July 28, 2011, Singh walked into the newspaper office where Ravinder Kaur Bhangu worked and attacked her with a hatchet, cracking her skull, and then stabbed her repeatedly with a knife. The court heard

that he was upset because she had left him. Singh was initially charged with firstdegree murder, but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of second-degree murder on June 10 on what was to be the first day of his trial. The conviction carries an automatic life sentence, with parole eligibility set by a judge. On Friday, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Miriam Maisonville set Singh’s at 16 years, which is what both Crown and defence had agreed was suitable.

Impact of trains not registering with community, residents say

Coal opponents host town hall meeting Alex Browne Staff Reporter

A town hall meeting on the proposed new Fraser Surrey Docks coal terminal – scheduled for this Wednesday at 8 p.m. at Ocean Park Community Hall, 1577 128 St. – will take a decidedly anti-coal stance. The upcoming Coal Awareness Town Hall Meeting, organized by a group of concerned Ocean Park residents, will include presenters Eoin Madden, of the Wilderness Committee, and Dr. Frank James, a member of Whatcom Docs, a group of doctors in Whatcom County concerned about health impacts of coal-export projects in Washington State. The planned terminal would increase transportation of coal on trains through White Rock, South Surrey and other communities south of the Fraser River.

A flyer advertising the meeting shows a child standing in front of rail lines and a looming coal train, with the title: “What are you willing to breathe?” The flyer notes the proposed direct transfer coal facility could ship up to eight million metric tonnes of coal annually, making B.C the largest coal exporter in North America. “Diesel emissions and dust from these shipments could compromise the health and well-being of the community,” it states. “Join us for a discussion to see what can be done before it is too late.” In a news release, meeting co-organizer Paula Williams said she and other Ocean Park parents see a “disconnect” between the realities of what the coal terminal could mean to White Rock and South Surrey and “the message that is reaching some of the residents.”

“We’ve taken a grassroots approach and organized our own informational meeting,” she said. “After speaking with many families (we feel) the potential impact of these coal trains on their community isn’t registering. “Families are busy and, for many, anything to do with Fraser Surrey Docks is the last thing on their minds.” In facilitating such meetings, the Ocean Park Community Association aims to raise awareness on the issue, rather than take sides, according to association president Jane Hayes, noting the Ocean Park Community Hall is open to input from both proponents and opponents of the terminal. “The OPCA is not taking a stand on this issue,” said Hayes. “We are, however, facilitating meetings at the hall to inform the residents.”

Hayes was responding to an email from OPCA member Bob Askew, which said the meeting ought to present varied opinions. Askew said that while he does not feel he has enough knowledge to support either a pro- or anti-coal transportation stance, he is concerned the matter receive “balanced consideration rather than a simplistic rejection based on emotional and ideological arguments.” Askew said he hoped project proponents would be invited to “show where the benefits lay, how they outweigh the downside risks, and what risk-management plans might be in place to mitigate any negative eventualities.” Although Metro Vancouver’s board has voted to oppose the coal terminal, legal authority to approve the project rests with the federally appointed Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.

We don’t have the option of installing a new hoist in the current environment, so that leaves us with the option of spending $300,000 to renovate. “In this climate, $300,000 is a lot for a school board. So we’re faced with the decision of spending $300,000 to renovate one room in one school for one class or use that money to address needed repairs in a variety of schools.” Strachan added that even without a hoist, the school’s automotive program is still meeting curriculum requirements. Parker said that while she is aware of the cost to renovate the shop for the automotive program, she doesn’t think price should be the deciding factor in the renovation. “That’s not a lot of money for what they’d be getting out of it, essentially a safer work space and more elbow room,” she said, noting her 14-year-old daughter, Avalon, plans on taking the class with her friends next year. “I think it’s great to have a few classes under their belt. It takes away the fear and intimidation. “I’m hoping they’ll improve the shop before they lose it.”

A Surrey woman is appealing to dog owners to be responsible in public, after her own dog was mauled to death by an off-leash dog in Sullivan Park last week. Anita Uppal said she arrived at the 6272 152 St. park June 18 with her niece and three dogs – two Lhasa Apso-poodle crosses and Bella, a Havanese-shihtzu cross – when the attack occurred. Uppal, 41, said she took Bella’s leash off to take a photograph of the recently groomed four-year-old, and Bella was busy sniffing around the base of a tree when Uppal spotted a Rottweiler and a golden retriever bee-lining for her. The Rottweiler “grabbed her by the back of her neck, kind of shook her and smashed her down. Killed her instantly, broke her neck,” Uppal said. “The (owners) came about 20 seconds later.” Uppal said animal-control officers are involved and that the Rottweiler owner called the next day to apologize. The woman insisted her dog was friendly, Uppal said. “Big dogs, they may be nice to their family and their owners, but they’re still animals. They have that predatory instinct,” she Contributed photo said. “That dog Pamela Uppal went right for with Bella. (Bella’s) neck.” City of Surrey officials were not available to comment by Peace Arch News’ press deadline Monday. “If that dog was on a leash and the owners were responsible, it wouldn’t have happened,” Uppal said. “I don’t think it’s the dog’s fault. “I just want people to be aware. This is going to happen again.”

“A regulation or policy is only as good as the paper it’s written on unless you have a really good implementation policy,” he said. “Because of their history and the perpetuation of homophobia by previous trustees… there’s a bigger onus on Surrey.” Deputy superintendent Jordan Tinney acknowledged there is much work to be done in the fall, including developing staff resources and training programs, educating students and parents about the regulation and weaving it into age-appropriate curriculum.


› from page 1 It began in 1997 when a primary teacher named James Chamberlain asked the school board of the day to approve three children’s books featuring samesex parents. His request was denied, sparking legal action that spanned years, divided the community, garnered national attention and proceeded all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada. On Thursday, Chamberlain, now a vice-principal in Vancouver, said he is “cautiously optimistic” about Surrey’s new regulation.


Bigger onus on Surrey: educator He lauded the committee members, in particular the youth, for their dedication, noting there were many long, frank conversations before pens were put to paper. “The impact of the student voice at the table was significant and substantial,” said Tinney. “We hope this will close one or more books on our history… and show we’re ready to move forward.” There are 23 other school districts in B.C. that have also established anti-homophobia regulations and policies.

‘Food security begins in backyard’ › from page 1 Backyard Chickens Facebook page and starting up a local chapter of the Canadian Liberated Urban Chicken Klub (CLUCK), in the hopes of legalizing not only her clandestine coop, but the many dotted all over the city that she had seen over the years. Growing up on the Prairies, McMaster had chickens on her property. The experience fostered an appreciation for the food she consumes – something she hopes to pass on to others. “I am a farm girl at heart, and I think that we have a massive disconnect between ourselves and our food supply,” she said. “I know kids who think food comes from Safeway – beef and chicken, they say Safeway. It boggles my mind.” After winning an unanimous endorsement from the city’s agricultural advisory committee on June 13, McMaster is now focusing on creating a education package on raising backyard hens and plans on collaborating with the city to create a pilot project for small-lot flocks. “I’m hoping to get 10 families on board and see how it goes,” she said. “I guess I’m the beginning of the pilot project because I’m already

raising three hens.” With her small flock – affectionately known as Consuela, Maizie and Oz – McMaster noted she has only received one complaint from her neighbourhood. Unlike roosters, she said, hens make little to no noise, and as long as the area is managed properly, there is no smell or influx of tricky pests – such as rats. “Chickens don’t attract

rats, mismanagement of feed does,” she said. With more meetings with the city in the weeks to come, McMaster said she is hopeful public discussion can spur more interest in where food comes from. “That is where I think – and where I hope – we’re heading towards,” she said. “Food security begins in your own backyard, and that’s where I am at with this.”

More than 60 firearms collected in just over two weeks

Surrey RCMP draws guns Kevin Diakiw Black Press

In just over two weeks, the B.C. Gun Amnesty program has collected more than 60 weapons from Surrey residents. This month, police across the province started collecting firearms during the annual gun amnesty. The program is designed to get unwanted guns out of homes, making them safer for everyone in them, and reducing the chance they will fall into the wrong hands due to theft. During the first 2½ weeks of the month-long B.C. Gun Amnesty, the following weapons were turned in to the Surrey RCMP for safe disposal: • 38 rifles; • 19 shotguns; • Four handguns; • 10 replica/pellet guns; • 10,000 individual rounds of ammunition. Of particular note, a number of historic rifles, possibly relics from previous military operations, have been turned in, as well as materials used in the making of homemade ammunition. “Many times we will receive guns and firearms  from families whose previous generations have passed on and they no longer want them in their homes,” said Surrey RCMP

No clear direction


he provincial NDP is at a crossroads, and whichever direction it chooses is fraught with challenges. Not only did the party lose an election that almost everyone expected it would win, it lost a number of key ridings, particularly in the Interior and Lower Mainland suburbs. It also lost in Oak Bay-Gordon Head, where Green party candidate Andrew Weaver was elected. Weaver is a well-known scientist who is articulate and knowledgeable. He will almost certainly help build on the Green Party beachhead which began when national leader Elizabeth May won a Vancouver Island seat in the 2011 federal election. The NDP has much to fear from the Greens, who appeal to many younger and environmentally minded people. The NDP, by contrast, often has difficulty moving beyond its massive debt to organized labour, which has very conflicting views on the environmental movement. The past election showed that many union members, particularly those whose jobs are related to resource extraction, voted Liberal. The NDP could shift to a more environmentally based party and leave these voters behind permanently. But if the party did so, they would be playing catch-up with the Greens. Or the NDP could move in the direction of being much more robust in supporting economic development. While this would appeal to a large core of voters, the party would likely be saying goodbye to many of its environmentally minded voters. The provincial NDP risk being caught in the squeeze that the federal Liberals were in after the 2011 election. The Liberals were outmuscled by the Conservatives on the jobs and economy front, and by the federal NDP on the labour, environment and social issues front. It was the party’s worst showing ever. The BC NDP must decide if Adrian Dix will remain as leader. Dix did not give much indication at the weekend provincial council meeting that he is going to resign. If he stays on as leader, there is almost certain to be a vicious internal fight within the NDP, which will likely lead to a divided party. That would leave it in even worse shape to deal with the changes that are in the wind on the provincial political scene. Premier Christy Clark and the BC Liberals are watching the NDP angst with undisguised enthusiasm.

reductions that have been worked on by two previous ministers, and push Metro Vancouver through a referendum on ways to fund its own transit. Coralee Oakes has made a political leap from Quesnel city hall to the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. One of her key tasks is to invent a framework for a “rural dividend” from liquefied natural gas development in northwestern B.C. Oakes has to figure out how to “better provide provincial support” to sport and cultural organizations, but do it with no new money. All ministers have strict instructions to balance their lean budgets and take part in the latest “core review” to identify government functions that can be sold, delegated or shut down. New Minister of International Trade, Richmond’s Teresa Wat, has to find a way to continue the growth of lumber and other exports to China, India and elsewhere on the Pacific Rim. On top of that, the always-delicate softwood lumber agreement with the U.S. expires in three years. The last major eruption on that front was in 2009, when B.C. cut stumpage rates for remote coastal areas to give communities muchneeded employment. The Americans were livid, just as they were with our beetle-kill harvesting efforts.

Taxis no fix-all for HandyDart Editor: Re: HandyDart riders feel left behind, June 13. We see in the media that all transit – for both able-bodied and disabled transit users – has troubles and complaints. For Access Transit: HandyDart, there are serious issues. The HandyDart budget has been frozen for three years while demand grows exponentially. TransLink has given 10,000 hours of HandyDart service to taxis. Its contract allows for that. However, that does not make it either safe or correct for the clients. This is an abuse and misuse of the allowed use of taxis. It was intended to replace a bus only when one is not available, thereby not leaving a client stranded or without a ride. When taxis come for us, as Handydart users – instead of our bus – we miss the friendly driver’s arm escorting us to the door. This is also true for the rare times when we use taxi-savers. We do not wish to denigrate taxi drivers, nor should anyone do that. It is to point out that because of the work conditions taxi drivers have – in order to make a living wage – they must put in as many rides as they can on their shift. To meet HandyDart conditions would mean taxi drivers would have a lowered income, which might not meet their minimum needs for income. We believe there is a need to have an audit or at least an inquiry into what public transit and Access Transit: Handydart users see as mismanagement. John & Elizabeth Beeching, Vancouver

‘Equal’ Senate at odds Editor: Re: Senatorial solutions, June 18 letters. The call by letter-writer Geoff Dean for a Senate with an equal number of senators per province, is simply parroting the 30-40 year-ago campaign for a “Triple E Senate” – a concept that is just as misguided now as it was then. The “equal” Senate would be massively undemocratic with, say, a senator from Ontario representing about 90 times the number of people represented by a P.E.I. senator. From the same period, however, comes an excellent reform alternative: the 1984 Report by a multi-party committee. Its recommendation was for an elected Senate with Ontario and Quebec each assigned 24 seats, P.E.I. with six seats and the other provinces 12 seats each. In the West, we should have grabbed at that if given a chance. Wow! Any two of the western provinces being equal to Ontario! Just as witless as the “equal” Senate, is the letter writer’s call for

the use of single transferrable vote, a system which wafted into B.C. on a cloud of deceit and deception. STV was frequently just said to be “proportional representation,” without a shred of supporting evidence. It’s not. STV was said to result in no votes wasted. Untrue. Wasted votes in the proposed 20 STV ridings would average 20 per cent, determined solely by the number of seats per riding (seven to two). STV was said to be designed for manual counting and vote transfer. Untrue… computer processing of votes is essential in BC-STV. Some ballots will be transferred carrying a fraction of one vote determined by multiplying one nine-decimal place fraction by another; example 0.238769561 x 0.054987653 = 0.013129378 of one vote. Pretty please: STV never again! David Poole, Surrey

Advocate for the oppressed Editor: I recently met a lovely lady who requires a wheelchair and relies on public transit for transportation. She shared that some bus drivers: a) Don’t stop for her because, I guess, they are too lazy to take the time to get out of the driver’s seat and do what’s necessary to assist her? b) For all intents and purposes, kidnap her by not stopping to let her off when she asks; and/or c) Bully her and say horrible things about her and her size. Please, if you see this, report it. She is afraid to do so because, in the past, it has either not done a thing to see changes and/or simply to add insult to injury, has made things worse by labelling her as a squeaky

wheel/complainer/troublemaker. This saddens me and should disgust us all. My brother is a city bus driver in Ontario, and I am sure he would never behave this way but rather be one of the drivers who is respectful and does his job. So, there are two things we can do: 1) Report unacceptable behaviour when you witness it; and 2) Report exceptional behaviour, so those who are good people and deserve accolades – as drivers get bullied/punched/verbally assaulted and you name it also – are recognized and given the shifts. Too often people turn a blind eye and ignore. If you want to see a change in this world it takes all of us to advocate, advocate, advocate! Our world is an inclusive world, be proud and quash the negativity and unacceptable behaviour! Lisa Batstone, Surrey

Concerned residents meet in Crescent Beach this past spring to speak out against planned increased coal trains.

Dust-up over American coal trains Editor: I feel I can no longer remain silent on this issue. From 1968 until the company’s bankruptcy in 1992, I was responsible for the transportation function of Canada’s largest exporter of metallurgical coal from two Elk Valley mines to Roberts Bank. Shipments amounted to over eight million tonnes per year, all by CP Rail. The problem of coal-dust emissions from unit trains reared its ugly head shortly after the commencement of shipments in 1970. In an attempt to mitigate, attention was given to the profile of loaded cars, and a crusting agent was applied to the coal surface. This was effective over the first part of the journey but tended to break down further along the route. Complaints were received from residents east of Kamloops and between Hope and Mission. The problem was never totally resolved. All it takes is a malfunction at the mine or a break in the profile of the load to create a “duster.” I have observed dusting trains in the Lower Mainland, as well as en route. I have also visited some residents to hear their concerns and witness the impact of the dust on their properties. Consider this: to move the four million tonnes of coal proposed annually, 400-plus loaded trains will be required. For every loaded train, there will be an empty return train, meaning an additional 800 trains moving through White Rock and South Surrey every year. This will create horrendous traffic problems at level crossings. I have a question for proponents of this project. Why do you think Oregon and Washington will not allow an export coal terminal to be constructed, and why should we be handling additional American coal and exposing ourselves to the risks, simply to create 50 jobs? Terry L. Garvey, Surrey

Re: Board of trade backs coal terminal, May 28. Why would Surrey Board of Trade CEO Anita Huberman want to push other people to agree with her opinion to transport U.S. coal through B.C. to South Asia? Many of the U.S. people don’t even want it to go through their own country, and the Sierra Club and other advocacy groups are suing the Burlington Northern Santa Fe and several coal companies because they have concerns about the open coal trains. Here in Surrey, some people are pushing it and have even been talking about dredging the Fraser River so bigger boats can get to the Fraser Surrey Docks. So what other businesses are is the board of trade promoting and trying to push through? And whose interest are they promoting? Catharina Leidel, Surrey

‘No more’ is no solution Re: Wishful thinking, June 18 letters. Reading again more objections to coal-train expansions in the letters to the editor, one ends with the words “we can do better.” So my question is, where are the recommendations to improve, as it will not go away that easy? The demands around the world for enlarged energy, supported by technical development, is here to stay. Population growth is expecting more services in any form. Time for all those who cry “no more” to roll up their sleeves and become productive, instead of wasting their and our time. Suan H. Booiman, White Rock

Public backlash prompts Christy Clark to backtrack

Premier cancels staff raises Tom Fletcher Black Press

Premier Christy Clark rolled back salary increases for political staff last week, after getting an earful from voters. Clark told reporters Wednesday that salary increases for her chief of staff and new positions with the same title in ministers’ offices will not go ahead. “I have heard a lot from British Columbians in the last week about this issue of changing the pay scales and pay levels for political staff, so today I am rescinding those changes, because leadership means listening to people,” Clark said. “Although the original change would have meant we were underspending the budget by $100,000, I’ve heard loud and clear that people didn’t like it.” The lone exception is Clark’s new deputy chief of staff, Michele Cadario, hired for the premier’s office after serving as deputy campaign manager for the BC Liberal election campaign. Cadario will receive a salary of $195,148 to do the operations and policy roles formerly

done by two people. Dan Doyle, Clark’s chief of staff, remains at the same salary as Cadario. A government spokesman said Doyle never accepted any raise, but recommended the maximum for his position be increased to $230,000 to attract the best candidate for his successor.

The top rate for ministry chiefs of staff, formerly ministerial assistants, will remain at $94,500 a year. The top rate for them was first increased to $105,000, then rolled back to $102,000 before being cancelled. Five of the people appointed to those jobs have had raises cancelled. NDP leader Adrian Dix, contacted in Kelowna where he is campaigning in a byelection where Clark hopes to win a seat, said the raises show the government is “tone deaf ” to the concerns of ordinary people. Dix said the decision to scrap the raises is “the first victory for Carole Gordon,” the NDP candidate in the Westside-Kelowna byelection. Gordon is running in the byelection called for July 10, after Clark was defeated by NDP candidate David Eby in a bid to retain her Vancouver-Point Grey seat. In the May 14 general election, Gordon lost by nearly a two-to-one margin to BC Liberal incumbent Ben Stewart, who resigned last week to allow Clark to run.

Surrey school trustees voted themselves a $200 per year pay decrease Thursday night. The seven-member board will now receive an annual rate of $30,200 – down from the past year’s salary of $30,400. (The chair and vice-chair of the board of education get an extra $3,000 and $1,500, respectively). Trustee pay is reviewed each year and is based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for Vancouver. While the rate has increased steadily over the years, this year, it decreased 0.8 per cent. In accordance with district policy, it was recommended that the pay for Surrey trustees be reduced to reflect the CPI change. “I believe that this is the correct thing to do,” said trustee Charlene Dobie. Last year, trustees increased their pay by $560 per year, and the year before, $66 per year.

Recurring break-ins at King George Boulevard property

what’s Frustration for family of late shop owner Sarah Massah & Tracy Holmes Staff Reporters

Five men are facing break-and-enter charges in connection with the Old Curio Shop in South Surrey. Surrey RCMP were tipped off to suspicious activity on the property located in the 1400-block of King George Boulevard at 10 a.m. on Sunday, June 16. Five men in their 30s and 40s were emerging from the shop when police arrived, resulting in their arrest. The men were later released on a promise to appear in court in September. Barrie Cohen, the owner of the shop – well-known for its floor-to-ceiling profusion of secondhand items – died in May at the age of 72, resulting in the boarding up of the property.

File photo

The Old Curio Shop was boarded up in May, after owner Barrie Cohen died.

Cohen’s sister, Rachel Cohen, said the incident was one of several that have occurred since her brother passed away.

The property is being looted “practically on a daily basis,” she said. In the latest, several silver items and cameras were taken. Cohen said from New York Monday that the City of Surrey has boarded up the property and had a steel fence erected to deter the criminal element, at the family’s expense. In a June 22 email, the family was advised 24-hour security was needed at the site. “We’re so disturbed by everything that happened,” Cohen said. “We did exactly what we were told to do.” Cohen said she is hopeful that greater awareness of the challenges at the property will encourage local residents to keep a closer eye on it and report any suspicious activity to police right away.

Semiahmoo students make poetry submissions

FALL 2013 Contest sheds light on ACCES Three Semiahmoo Secondary students took to the podium last month at the African Canadian Children’s Education Society (ACCES) luncheon to share their submissions for a poetry-writing contest. Each poem centered around a korobois – a lamp made of a scrap tin can and kerosene used in Kenyan homes without electricity. The three students – Illeanne Alexander, Keming Zheng and first-place winner Tower Li – are all members of the school’s Globalizers club, where they learned about ACCES and the work the organization does to support children in Africa. The luncheon, held at Eaglequest Golf Course, was attended by 60 ACCES donors, as well as the students. Founded by White Rock teacher Beth Scott and her husband, George, ACCES has helped thousands of Kenyan students receive an education.

magine living the life you’ve always dreamed – a luxurious setting with all the comforts of home, and limitless lifestyle options at your fingertips. How about a five-star hotel environment, complete with a warm, inviting lobby, spacious dining room, exercise room with a garden view, arts and crafts room and library, conveniently located in the heart of the Semiahmoo Peninsula? Revera – Whitecliff Retirement Living by Revera offers all of these first-class amenities, plus the opportunity to enjoy an independent retirement lifestyle. With a team of dedicated professionals on-hand offering service that is second to none, it’s no wonder resident satisfaction at this elegant retirement residence is so high. From serving up delicious, home-cooked healthy meals in the elegant dining room, to daily interactions between residents and friendly staff, it’s easy to see that the team at Whitecliff – many of whom have been on

board for several years – truly love what they do and strive to ‘do the right things right.’ With an emphasis on caring for residents’ Mind, Body and Soul, Whitecliff offers a range of services, amenities and recreation programs dedicated to providing choice, comfort and care. From creative pursuits, such as art class, flower arranging and creative writing, to a variety of rewarding fitness programs customized to meet residents’ specific needs, there is truly something for everyone at Whitecliff. Social events such as movie night, singalongs, dances and bingo are always popular among the staff, as is their weekly current-events talk, which is often full of lively and thoughtprovoking debate. Excursions on Whitecliff’s very own mini-bus take residents to exciting destinations near and far, and residents are encouraged to suggest places they’d like to visit with their friends. With all the excitement

and activity taking place at Whitecliff, residents are likely to work up quite an appetite – each meal at Whitecliff comes with a number of options to suit each residents’ taste, and everything served is prepared onsite with fresh, local ingredients. Another example of Whitecliff’s dedication to putting its residents’ needs first is the Aging in Place philosophy, which allows residents to transition from independent living to assisted living, and even to 24-hour care should they require it, all without having to move to a new residence. The Aging in Place philosophy is a great advantage for residents who would otherwise have to research, find and move into a new home as their specific needs changed, which can be a tremendous amount of work and cause unnecessary stress. Built on three acres of beautiful private land, Whitecliff features 126 gorgeous suites – including studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom – with high ceilings and large windows and closets. Other on-site amenities include a charming dining room, expansive foyer, cozy fireside lounge, crafts

room, fitness room, a popular tea room where residents can find fresh-baked goodies and a beautiful patio and courtyard overlooking a lush garden. And with 24-hour security and nursing services on hand, families and residents alike can rest assured that help is close at hand should they need it.

White Rock’s Rose Shymanski celebrates her 100th birthday June 12 with her son, Don, at her Sunnyside Manor home.

If ever there was a reason to celebrate one’s birthday over the span of several weeks, a 100-year milestone is certainly it. And that’s just what White Rock’s Rose Shymanski has been doing the past few weeks. Shymanski, who turned 100 on June 12, has had a number of birthday celebrations recently, starting with a reunion with her two daughters – one from California, the other from Calgary – and their husbands in May. On the day she officially became a centenarian, she went out for dinner with her son, granddaughter and nephews. And just last week, her friends at Sunnyside Manor – where she resides  – threw her an afternoon tea party to celebrate her big day.

“I never thought I’d reach this age,” Shymanski told Peace Arch News last week. “I’m just trying to do the best I can.” Born in Saskatchewan, Shymanski spent nine years living in Quebec before her family moved to B.C. in 1948. She’s lived the past 30 years or so on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. She has a son and two daughters, seven grandchildren and 10 greatgrandchildren. While there are a number of hobbies from her “younger days” that she has since given up – sewing, going to the movies, dancing – she said she still plays bingo fairly often. She admits, however, that she doesn’t take part in as many activities as she used do. “I’m an antique now,” she laughed.

DEAR RESIDENTS: I have toured a number of retirement residences and each one has different strengths. How do I choose the right one for me? - E.P. DEAR E.P.: Write a list of the things important to you, and then ask your family and friends for their insights. Also think to the future with honesty - your needs may change as the years progress, so you want to be sure there is personal assistance available in order to stay independent. Review the neighbourhood: at the Royale Peninsula we have a great location for amenities and also a shuttle bus available for our personal appointments and shopping.

Panel of residents: Sheila D., Ernest B., Jim and Coral B. live at the Royale Peninsula Retirement Residence. They draw upon their personal experiences to provide you with comprehensive answers.

Most importantly, think about how the building made you feel when you visited: is the atmosphere welcoming? Are the residents friendly, do they look comfortable and happy? Follow up with the places you have visited to clarify some details that may appear equal, but in fact may not be. IE: at our residence the emergency response is provided by a health care professional, but some residences only have a night-house person or are monitored by an outside service.

Taking 25 milligrams of B12, especially when supplemented with vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), can be a successful sleeplessness remedy. Vitamin B12 deficiency is quite common and is a factor for many patients who suffer from insomnia, especially seniors. • 5-HTP: Serotonin is a key neurotransmitter involved in sleep and mood, and 5-HTP, or 5-hydroxytroptophan, is a precursor to serotonin.

Many people find using all-natural supplement therapy is enough to ward off sleeplessness. Insomnia is more prevalent among elderly individuals and women. Although there are many different medications, be it prescription medications or overthe-counter drugs, to alleviate symptoms of sleeplessness, some people prefer to not take these medications due to the risk of dependency or the side effects associated with them.

Avoid Overuse Cycling Injuries

Cyclists can develop a variety of overuse injuries. Also, because of aging or previous injury, some cyclists have pre-existing joint problems (e.g. osteoarthritis, lower limb malalignment). Here are a few tips to help make cycling a pain-free and enjoyable experience 1. Cadence: Maintaining a relatively fast cadence (above 80 RPM) will mean lower pressures on your joints. A common mistake for new cyclists is to push too big of a gear and not “spin”. Spinning may feel awkward at first, but many studies confirm it is easier on your joints and more efficient. Many bikes now come with “compact” gearing which provide easier gears for spinning up hills 2. Technique: One would think there isn’t much skill needed to cycle, but even the pros spend time in their off-seasons working on technique drills. The pedalling motion isn’t just a push-push motion. Force should be applied to the pedals through the whole pedal stroke (pedaling the full circle). If you are not clipped in this is not possible, but if you are clipped in drills like single-leg pedalling are a great way to make sure you are using an efficient pedal stroke. This means you are not just using quads and gluts on the down-stroke, but also using your hip flexors and hamstrings on the up-stroke. This technique helps prevent overuse injuries at

the knee. One other aspect of technique is knee alignment while pedalling. Try to avoid side-to-side motion of your knee during the pedal stroke as this is associated with developing knee pain (e.g. patellofemoral pain syndrome). A bike fitting may be needed to address your knee alignment (e.g. due to incorrect cleat position on cycling shoes). 3. Training Errors: Because cycling is non-impact, it is easier to ramp up the miles or intensity without getting sore when compared to impact sports. However, a common error is “too much, too soon”, especially when the sunny weather arrives here on the “wet coast”. Try to avoid sudden increases in your riding duration or intensity (e.g. hills, speed work) to prevent developing overuse injuries (e.g. tendonitis). 4. Correct bike size, bike fit, and equipment: Riding the wrong size bike can lead to all sorts of issues (e.g. low back pain, neck pain, etc). Riding the bike your friend sold you, who happens to be a foot taller than you, is going to cause problems. Your local bike shop expert can help you determine what size of bike is best for your body. There are even online “calculators” where you can input a few of your body measurements and get an idea of the range of bike sizes that are best for you. Once you have the right size of bike, then a bike fitting may be needed as well. Many parts

By Tyler Dumont of the bike can be adjusted to make sure the bike fits your particular posture and alignment. If you have significant alignment issues (e.g. leg length differences, limited joint mobility) it is a good idea to have a bike fit with a certified bike fitter. Many parts of the bike (e.g. saddle, stem, shoes) come in different sizes and shapes and can make a real difference in the cyclist’s comfort while riding. For foot issues, many aspects of the shoe (insoles, cleat position) can even be modified. Non-custom insoles or even custom cycling orthotics can relieve problems like foot numbess or even knee pain. I hope these tips help you stay injury-free, efficient, and comfortable on your bike. Enjoy this year’s Tour de White Rock.

Surrey coach to take position with Vancouver Giants

Erhart leaving Eagles’ nest for WHL gig Rick Kupchuk Black Press

Matt Erhart moving on

An opportunity that was too good to pass up has prompted Matt Erhart to leave the Surrey Eagles. The 35-year-old Cloverdale resident is stepping down as head coach of the BC Hockey League (BCHL) team to accept an assistant-coach position with the Vancouver Giants of the Western Hockey League. “It’s a bittersweet day when

you have to leave a program that you’ve been a part of as a player and a coach,” Erhart said in a news release. “The Eagles gave me a great opportunity to be a head coach and general manager in the BCHL, and I’ll always be thankful for that.” Erhart leaves South Surrey’s Junior A team after his most successful season behind the bench. He guided the team to a BCHL championship, a Western Canada Cup

championship and an appearance at the Royal Bank Cup national championship tournament in P.E.I., becoming the only person to participate as both a player and coach. Erhart played for the Eagles in the 1997-’98 season, when the team won the Royal Bank Cup. He rejoined the Eagles for the 2009-’10 season as an assistant coach and became head coach a year later. Rumoured for several months

as a candidate for the assistantcoach position with the Giants, it was made official Monday. “With the Giants, it’s a chance to further my coaching career, and I couldn’t pass it up,” said Erhart. “I am really looking forward to working alongside and learning from (head coach) Don Hay and the staff.” Eagles president Peter Schaefer will take over the roles of general manager and head coach. He was an assistant

coach last season. “We’re sad to lose (Erhart), as he’s been fabulous over the past few years, but at the same time, we’re very confident with Peter taking over,” said Eagles majority owner Chuck Westgard. “He (Schaefer) showed this year that he’s passionate about coaching, and we’re excited to have him as our head coach and general manager for the upcoming season.”

World championships set to begin July 1

Making pitch for national squad F

ive local softball players were among a group of 26 invited to the Junior Women’s National Team’s (JWNT) selection camp last week in Brampton, Ont. Jocelyn Cater of Delta, and Surrey residents Holly Speers, Lindsey Ogilvie, Sara Groenewegen and Chelsea Jenner were invited to the camp by Softball Canada. Following the camp, which wrapped up Friday, the JWNT coaching staff plans to announce a roster for the 2013 World Championships, which are set to run from July 1-7, also in Brampton. Players at last week’s tryout camp were selected following two regional camps May 23-26 in Cloverdale and June 13-16 in Brampton. Four of the five local players vying for a spot on the team played in the championship game of the 2012 Under-18 Women’s Fastpitch Canadian Championship in Montreal last August. Cater won the tournament’s Best Pitcher award with a 0.28 earned run average, leading the White Rock Renegades to a national championship with a 1-0 win over the Surrey Storm. Cater will also be familiar to Peninsula fastpitch fans, as she’s donned Canada’s colours at the past few Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championships at Softball City. In 2011, at just 16 years old, Cater became the

Groenewegen was also a member of the Renegades, collecting 10 strikeouts in a 3-1 semifinal win over the Guelph Gators, and finishing the tournament with a 3-0 won-lost record and a 0.74 earned run average.

Jenner and Ogilvie played for the Storm at the national tournament. Jenner, committed to San Jose State on a softball scholarship and Softball BC’s Athlete of the year in 2012, was named to the tournament all-star team at centre field with a .400-batting average in the round robin.

Ogilvie was an all-star at first base after batting .394. She also pitched in four games, not allowing an earned run in 13 innings. Speers, a pitcher/shortstop, played for the Delta Heat ‘96 at last year’s Canadian Open. She was also part of the Heat team in 2011, which won the under-16

Two more Eagles off to college Two more Surrey Eagles are headed off to play college hockey in the fall. Earlier this month, the team announced that both Trevor Cameron and Troy Paterson had accepted scholarships for the 2013/14 season. Cameron – who had major-junior experience prior to joining the Eagles in 2011 – will play next year at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary. Paterson – who missed the second half of the 2012/13 BC Hockey League season due to injury – will head south to play at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, which plays in the NCAA’s Div. 3. Cameron, who came to the Eagles from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League’s Notre Dame Hounds in a 2011 trade, put up 52 points in 84 regular-season games over two seasons, and was a key contributor to the Eagles’ run to the RBC Cup this past season, tallying 20 points in 27 playoff games. “We’re very proud of Trevor for taking the next step in his hockey career,” said Eagles head coach and general manager Matt Erhart. “He was a tireless worker with the

Eagles and was one of our leaders this past year. As his numbers proved throughout the playoffs, he was a key part of our run.” The 20-year-old Paterson,


the son of former Eagles’ owner Ronnie Paterson, was acquired by the Eagles from the Cowichan Valley Capitals in January, but his season was cut short soon after when he



suffered a lower-body injury. The blue-liner finished the year with four goals and nine assists in 29 games. He played just two games with the Eagles before being sidelined.

Big win for ‘97s

The White Rock Renegades ’97 pulled off what their coach called “a major softball coup” earlier this month, winning the gold medal at the 2013 Valley Invitational Softball Championships in Portland, Ore. The tournament – which featured 56 under-16 teams from across the U.S. and Canada – was capped with the ’Gades winning the final game, 8-0 over a team from Reno. The win continues what has been a marvelous season thus far for the 1997-born fastpitch team, which has a record of 65-1-6 this season, including four tourney wins. “I could not be prouder of this group of athletes,” said head coach Mark Dunlop. “We need to stay focused and continue to work as hard as we have, we need to prepare for provincials in July which are being held in Victoria and then our ultimate challenge of winning nationals.”

The temporomandibular joint – commonly shortened to just TMJ – is simply the joint of the jaw. The name is derived from the two bones that form the WHITE ROCK OPTOMETRY “Caring for you and your family for over 30 years”

joint: the upper temporal bone, which is part of the cranium (skull), and the lower jawbone, called the mandible. TMJ dysfunction refers to the pain or dysfunction of the muscles that move this joint. Problems may arise from a number of situations, including clenching or grinding of teeth; dental procedures requiring the mouth to be open for extended periods; injuries to the face, head, and/or neck; and structural issues. A problem may present itself with tension in the jaw, headaches, pain in or around the joint, clicking in the joint, and even the inability to open or close one’s mouth due to severe pain or “locking”. To properly address TMJ dysfunction, the therapist
