Targeting mobility devices for regulation cited as discriminatory

Cities eye licensing wheelchair users Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Motorized scooters targeted.

Regulating the use of motorized scooters and wheelchairs will do more harm than good, says a White Rock woman who relies on one of the vehicles for day-to-day activities. “I think it’s discriminatory,” said Leslie Konkin, of a proposal to be debated at next month’s Union of B.C. Municipalities convention. Put forth by Sidney council, the resolution urges the province to regulate the use of motorized mobility aids – including wheelchairs and

scooters – and require training, testing and licensing of operators. Konkin, 57, serves as an accessibility consultant on White Rock’s advisory design panel. She said that if adopted, such regulations will only make life more challenging for people like herself – it will not solve any problems. While Sidney council’s resolution argues that seniors drive the appliances too fast on sidewalks without any regulation, Konkin said the majority of users – as with motorists – “are doing a good job of using them safely,” and that

education and simple common sense amongst operators and pedestrians alike will go much farther to address any problems. “I don’t think rules and regulations and mandates and licensing is going to solve anything,” she said, encouraging the issue be left where it now stands, between patients and their healthcare providers. Living with multiple sclerosis and not able to walk more than a step or two unaided, Konkin has relied on a medi-scooter for about 15 years. i see page 4

Wine bottle mishap sends senior to hospital Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Elderly victims conned in cities across Canada

Arrest made in ‘Nephew Bandit’ case Dan Ferguson Black Press

A fraud suspect sought by authorities for more than five years for crimes that occurred in multiple B.C. cities – including White Rock last Oct. 30 – was arrested last week by Vancouver police. The man had been wanted on 18 warrants issued by police forces in three provinces. VPD officials said they were alerted to the suspect’s location after staff at a local hospital recognized a man as the subject of a wanted poster for a man police dubbed “the Nephew Bandit.” The suspect, Richard Earl Rupert, 57, had entered the hospital in June under a different name and was arrested Aug. 21.

The “Nephew Bandit” earned his nickname for allegedly convincing elderly victims that he was a distant relative who needed a loan. Victim Louise Naef, 92, told an RCMP press conference in April that she was scammed out of $1,800 by a con man who posed as the son of a friend from Calgary. The Langley woman said the man approached her as she was leaving a grocery store, and told her he had a greeting for her from a friend outside B.C. “Guess who it is?” he said. She could only think of one person, who lived in Calgary. “Yes, in Calgary,” the man said when she asked. She then told him the name of her friend

and the man said that was the person. In fact, he was her friend’s son, he said, and he needed a little help. “He told me had problems on the Coquihalla and the car needed repairs,” Naef recalled. The man said he needed $1,800, and said his mother would repay her. He told Naef his mom would be in Langley the next day and would have the money. “He was very friendly to me,” Naef recalled. “Very kind.” So Naef went to her bank and withdrew the cash. When her friend failed to show up the next day, she realized she’d been had. The grandmother had enough financial resources that the loss of $1,800 won’t ruin

her, she said. She spoke out to warn other seniors to beware of friendly strangers claiming to be relatives. The “Nephew Bandit” had been featured on America’s Most Wanted and CTV’s W5 – Investigative Reports. “Last night’s arrest brings relief to both his victims and police agencies across Canada as an elusive predator has now been put behind bars,” VPD Sgt. Randy Fincham said Thursday. Rupert faces charges in connection with incidents in White Rock, Vancouver, Victoria, New Westminster, Durham, Niagara, London, Waterloo, Ottawa and Toronto. He remains in custody.

Police hopeful

New tip after man missing Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

New information regarding a South Surrey man who was reported missing last spring has not solved the mystery. But police say they hope a recent tip indicating Vaclav (Walter) Simek was dropped off near 200 Street and 40 Avenue on March 7 will trigger the memory of someone who could help locate him. “It’s not a significant change to the investigation… (but it is) information we feel we should share in case other people or witnesses might have seen him in that area,” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said Friday. Simek was reported missing in April. At that time, police understood the 52-year-old was last seen in late February. A week after Vaclav Simek first requestmissing ing the public’s assistance, police released a photograph of Simek’s springer spaniel, Tucker. The dog is always at Simek’s side, police said at the time. Prior to being dropped off March 7, Simek rented a car to move items from his home in the 16300-block of 8 Avenue to an unknown residence. Since the return of the car, Simek has not accessed his bank accounts or used his cellphone. Paquet said there remains no evidence of foul play and no sign he has left the country. “Until we find evidence to the contrary, (we’re) hoping to find him well,” he said. Simek is described as an avid outdoorsman, and it is thought he may be hiking or camping. Simek is described as a six-footthree, 210-pound Caucasian man, with brown hair and blue eyes. Anyone with information should call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.

Budget constraints postpone South Surrey leg of King George route

Trade-offs as express buses take off Jeff Nagel Black Press

TransLink is launching a new B-Line express bus route in Surrey connecting Newton to Guildford with stops at major SkyTrain stations in the City Centre area. The 96 B-Line limited-stop service rolls out Sept. 2 on King George Boulevard and 104 Avenue, with buses running every seven to eight minutes from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. The longer 60-foot articulated buses are expected to take 13 minutes to reach King George Station from 72 Avenue in Newton and 22 minutes to make the full run to Guildford exchange. “It’s going to be quick, fast bus service and it should help get people out of their cars and onto the transit system,” TransLink spokesman Derek Zabel said. “It’s been a long time coming for Surrey residents who have been asking for this type of service.” Zabel said the route will serve significant ridership going between Newton and Guildford, as well as SkyTrain passengers. B-Line buses also tend to act as a precursor to full-on rapid transit, helping build ridership on routes slated for eventual train service. The same King George and 104 Avenue cor-

Long articulated buses are coming to Surrey. ridors are being studied by TransLink for some future configuration of rapid transit –  potentially SkyTrain or light rail. Zabel noted a former B-Line bus route in Richmond eventually became the Canada Line and one that runs from Lougheed Station to Coquitlam Centre will be replaced by the Evergreen Line when that SkyTrain extension is finished. “This is a very important step for this rapidtransit corridor,” he said. The new King George B-Line was identified as a high priority by TransLink and approved in its 2013 base plan. There will be just eight stops between Newton and Guildford – on King George at 76, 88 and 96 avenues; at King George Station and Surrey Central Station; and then at Whalley Boulevard, 144 Street and 148 Street heading

east along 104 Avenue. The new run comes with some trade-offs in other service. Zabel said there will be some reduction in frequency north of Newton on the 321 buses that go from White Rock to Surrey Central, as well as on the 320 buses that run along 104 Avenue between Guildford and Surrey Central. But he predicts bus passengers heading north to SkyTrain from White Rock/South Surrey will experience less crowding once the extra B-Line service kicks in on King George. “It will definitely help to address some of the pass-up situations and crowded conditions you sometimes have on the 321.” He said there may be a period of adjustment for some passengers used to all buses making every stop along King George and 104 Avenue. The changes take 16,000 annual service hours from the 321 route and close to 10,000 hours from the 320, but Zabel said the net increase in Surrey service on those corridors is 36,600 after the addition of 62,500 hours for the new B-Line. The King George B-Line was originally to run all the way to White Rock, but the leg south of Newton was shelved due to budget constraints. “Extending that all the way into White Rock is something we will look at in the future.”

‘There has to be some qualification’ i from page 1 She said people need to remember that the equipment, for the majority of operators, serves as a replacement for users’ legs, not their vehicles. “It would make things more onerous, as far as getting licensed, paying what they’re going to charge,” Konkin said. “It’s just another thing an already energy-taxed person would have to deal with.” Officials with the motoristadvocacy group, SENSE BC, describe the proposal as a “laughable” example of bureaucratic overkill. Semiahmoo Peninsula politicians offered a range of opinions. Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg said he doesn’t sense it’s a major problem but added “some authority” is probably needed, preferably through provincial law that lets individual cities regulate the machines if they deem it necessary. “People are generally pretty well-behaved,” he said. “Public policy generally should not be developed for exceptions.” White Rock deputy mayor Grant Meyer questioned the impact enforcing scooter regulations would have on that city’s already busy bylaw staff. But White Rock Coun. Larry Robinson said he’s all for it.

Mishap

i from page 1 “Where the cut was was quite bad. We first started administering first aid and realized this is more than what we can handle.” Tompkins – one of two staffers to give aid – said the senior was in good spirits throughout the ordeal. The cut was “right by his lung,” he said. “He didn’t seem to be in a lot of pain,” Tompkins said. “We had him sitting on a chair and had some gauze on him kind of trying to control the bleeding until the ambulance got here, but it was evident it was way past our means of first aid.” Paramedics and firefighters were on the scene “within minutes,” he added. An official update on the man’s condition was not available, however, Tompkins said paramedics “felt that he was going to be more than fine.” A B.C. Ambulance Service official said crews transported a man to Royal Columbian Hospital with “serious injuries.” Friday, police said the last update indicated the senior was in stable condition with a nonlife-threatening injury.

“There has to be some type of regulation, including you to be approved or prescribed to use them,” he said. Robinson said he has seen people operating electric wheelchairs holding up traffic. And he said he knows people who don’t have a medical need Larry Robinson councillor for the machines but just like to use them to get around. “I don’t think you should be able to walk into a store and walk out with an electric scooter and just drive it wherever you want. There has to be some qualification for the use.” There’s currently no registration, insurance or licence required to operate the devices in B.C. The province has indicated to UBCM it intends to develop a coordinated plan for safe operation of motorized scooters, including possible amendments to the Motor Vehicle Act. The provincial coroner in 2008 issued recommendations supporting scooter regulation after several scooter-riding seniors died in crashes with vehicles. The B.C. Coalition of People with Disabilities opposes the idea.

“These are mobility devices that people need to get out into the community,” said executive director Jane Dyson. “Such a regulation would impede their independence.” The proposal is among at least three transportation-related resolutions that will be on the floor at the UBCM convention in Vancouver in late September. The City of Victoria is behind a proposed cut in default speed limits on city streets to 40 km/h from the current 50 km/h. If the lower default limit is adopted by the province, municipalities could still selectively designate specific roads for higher speeds. The resolution asks for provincial aid installing new signage, including signs for roads where the speed limit would be different from the default 40 km/h. The current default is dangerously high on some residential streets, argues Victoria Coun. Shellie Gudgeon. “Even laneways can be 50 km/h if it’s not signed,” Gudgeon told Black Press. “It’s far too fast for neighbourhoods and families.” Ian Tootill of SENSE BC predicts drivers wouldn’t obey the lower limit and said there’s little evidence of low-speed fatalities or injuries that could be prevented with an even lower limit. – with files from Jeff Nagel

Toy gun, baby prompt police response Police are recommending criminal charges after a three-hour standoff near Bear Creek Park last Wednesday night. At about 9:15 p.m., Surrey RCMP responded to a 911 call regarding a domestic disturbance in the 13300-block of 87B Avenue. Police went to the basement suite that was the focus of the complaint. A man came to the door with a baby in one hand and what appeared to be a gun in the other. The 22-year-old Surrey man – identified as the boyfriend of the woman in the suite – refused to let police in or to let the woman and baby go. RCMP called in the Emergency Response Team with a negotiator, who spent the next three hours

talking the man out of the suite. The weapon he was carrying was an Airsoft gun. The woman and 11-month-old girl were physically unharmed. RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said the evening was a tense situation that worked out for the best. “A toy gun has a time and a place, when being used as a toy,” Paquet said. “If it’s observed (outside of that), we will always assume it’s the real McCoy.” The man, who is known to police, was taken into custody. Police say they are recommending charges of obstructing a peace officer and possession of a weapon for dangerous purposes. -Kevin Diakiw

Lessons learned, then forgotten

T

here was a time when not wearing a helmet while cycling or skateboarding was the norm. Not so many years ago, that ‘norm’ became the exception, as injuries and deaths of those partaking in the activities were connected to the distinct lack of head protection. The tragic death in 2001 of well-known local skateboarder ‘Major’ Dave Bowers was attributed in large part to the lack of a helmet. Bowers died of complications arising from a snowboarding accident on Seymour Mountain, in which he fell backwards and hit his head. Matt Elder is another name locals residents will likely recall with sadness. The Southridge School honour student died in 2002, hours after striking the back of his head on the pavement while skateboarding near his South Surrey home. The 13-year-old was also not wearing a helmet. In an effort to both keep Elder’s memory alive and prevent similar tragedies, a campaign was launched aimed at inspiring young ‘boarders and cyclists to don helmets every time they are out enjoying their sport. Friends of the teen said at the time that helmetwearing did increase in the wake of Elder’s death – a glimmer of hope that the painful lesson had been learned. Looking around today, however, it appears many have forgotten that lesson. Young and old can be seen daily enjoying their sport care- and helmet-free. In the case of the particularly young, there’s no question responsibility rests on the parents. It’s an offence under the Motor Vehicle Act to permit a person under age 16 to operate or ride as a passenger without a helmet. And yet, it’s not uncommon to see parents cycle helmet-free with their children – reinforcing the potentially deadly standard as acceptable. Older riders, simply put, should know better. Of course, there are those who argue helmets aren’t needed; that they deter people from enjoyable outdoor activities. It is a weak argument. Even the mildest of head injuries can be life-changing. It would appear a wake-up call may be needed to remind people of what they stand to lose should that fateful fall they never expected happen to them or someone they love. Who, after all, sets out planning to sustain a life-threatening injury? Perhaps a gentle reminder is enough, with hope that it doesn’t take another tragedy – another needless death or injury – to get people to once again use their heads.

So far this week you’ve said....

yes 71% no 29% 228 responding and full or partial dentures can cost many thousands of dollars. In the parlance of today’s world, if you don’t have a dental plan or a huge income, you are hooped. While some dentists struggle along on net incomes that are not startling, many rake in more than $200,000 per year. People with dental plans have little regard for how much or how little their dentist makes but people on low incomes and pensioners without dental plans are left in the lurch. Even at lowest average income for dentists, most old-age pensioners earn about one-tenth as much. Without additional resources, many of these people either ignore their dental health or they patronize illegal basement operations such as Wu’s. The health-care system in B.C. is failing in a huge way when it comes to dental health. Only in rare cases will medicare pick up the tab for dental work. Dentists, dental hygienists and almost any health-care professional will attest to the importance of good dental health on the impact of a person’s overall physical well-being. By ignoring or evading the issue of dental-health costs, the province’s health-care system is probably incurring even greater overall costs. And so people with no alternative affordable option will continue to seek out illegal basementdental operations where they can receive treatment.

Posturing over cyber bullying Editor: MP Russ Hiebert has sent out a newsletter regarding cyber bullying. It asks the people of this constituency – South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale – to decide which political party is on the right track to help combat cyber bullying. To ask this question is shameful. All members of Canada’s Parliament and all members of all political parties – and in fact the vast majority of Canadians – are against and want to combat cyber bullying. It is disgusting that he and the Conservative party would politicize this issue by asking this question. Hiebert would lead us to believe that the Conservative Party of Canada is the best party to help combat cyber bullying. If the party really wants to do something about cyber bullying, why is Prime Minister Harper proroguing Parliament? Why not continue Parliament and really address this issue? However, to continue Parliament would obviously not be in the best political interest of the Conservative party, so all this talk about cyber bullying is just political posturing. Ian Routledge, White Rock Q Among the sporadic mail one receives these days was a piece of paper from our MP Russ Hiebert, headlining the sorry results of cyber bullying. The answer is well known among common-sense people. Only politicians wonder, spending our money to ask. The political silence there today would be a better issue. Why do we pay them for doing nothing? The government asks the court, while they are elected to be lawmakers. The House should be the power, not the courts. It makes one wonder “why do we go to the voting booth?” The next one around will be no different. Suan H. Booiman. White Rock

minister who commented on a senator’s expenses without full information. I’m sure he had a chat with Senator Pamela Wallin who assured him she was pure and true. To answer your question of what changed between February and May is that the facts came out. Would you not support your appointee until facts prove otherwise? The prime minister then took what action he could and kicked the bums out of the party. If he could have, he would’ve fired them out of the Senate. You didn’t mention that, either. It is the Senate that is corrupt, not the government of the day. At the recent premiers’ conference, a motion by the Saskatchewan premier to urge the abolishment of the Senate was deemed of no importance by the premier of B.C., and the motion failed. She likes things the way they are. Talk to her. J. Edwards, Surrey

Fun doesn’t preclude aid Editor: Re: Not just a drop in the bucket, Aug. 20. Letter-writer Dick Hulls’ rant about eating contests demands some kind of response, as it is

only subjective in nature and only appears to be an affront to him. His trembling attempt to appear objective in trying to make people feeling guilty about it won’t work. Perhaps this appears wasteful to him. However, to others, it is exactly what it is – fun. Hulls asks, “What are we, in this so-called land of plenty, doing to help alleviate this tragic circumstance?” Perhaps he’s not aware, but there are a myriad of world food agencies that are working to do just that – helping to alleviate the world’s hungry and starving citizens. For example, locally there are church soup kitchens, the Salvation Army is doing an outstanding job of providing food and clothing, as well as the Union Gospel Mission in Vancouver, to mention a few. What has the letter writer done to help alleviate such circumstances? Has he volunteered at a soup kitchen lately? Has he donated funds to a food charity? There is tremendous joy by being involved in feeding the hungry, and donating to world food agencies, of which I’ve had the privilege of doing both. If Hulls can answer that he has supported some kind of food charity or agency, then well done. But before he attempts to remove

the sliver out of someone else’s eye for not doing it, then perhaps he can start by removing the log out of his. Brian Batke, Surrey

Sharing their vision Editor: In our sometimes impersonal world geared towards automation, when you find people who go above and beyond the norm, it needs to be shared. Our son had a severe eye injury recently and I called Spectrum Optometry in the Peninsula Village shopping centre for advice on what to do, and they kindly said they would clear their schedule and to bring him in right away. From the moment we saw Dr. Liseann Head, to the many followup visits and personal phone calls she made to our home, it was so comforting to be looked after by someone who cares so much to make these extra efforts. Retinal surgeon Dr. Dhar Dhanda, whom she recommended, was also fantastic, and we are so fortunate that our son’s sight was fully restored and we wanted to publicly say a big thanks to both of them. Linda & Mike Dinsmore, Surrey

Blame Senate, not the PM Editor: Re: Senate expenses beg questions, Aug. 20 editorial. Your biased article failed to mention there are Senate miscreants from both Liberal and Conservative camps. You only name Conservatives. If the NDP get in, expect a new group of Senatorial idiots. (Editor’s note: The editorial mentioned former-Liberal Senator Mac Harb’s fall from grace, as noted by Conservative MP Russ Hiebert.) You know the prime minister has from the get-go stated the Senate should be abolished because it is essentially useless and a waste of taxpayer dollars? Why did you leave that out, as well as his efforts before the courts to accomplish reforms if the Senate cannot be abolished? Reporters expect immediate answers, and I would give the benefit of the doubt to any prime

Hundreds answered farmer Jas Singh’s call for help to harvest vegetables for local food banks before they spoil.

A great day for bountiful harvest Editor: Re: God’s Little Acre seeks hands to help harvest, Aug. 15. “I only expected 100 helpers this morning, but I see more than 500 volunteers,” Jas Singh, owner of God’s Little Acre, told me. My family and I read his plea for help in the Peace Arch News. We decided to take the whole family to help him weed and harvest his great crop of organically grown vegetables. He was donating lots of his surplus crop of

zucchinis, potatoes, carrots, cucumbers, etc. to the local food banks. A great cause to help the needy, his pleas were answered by many local – and not so local – residents. It was a great day to be outdoors for work, fresh air and exercise. Everyone, young and old, looked well prepared to help this local farmer weed his many fields of healthy produce. It was a learning experience for the very young and fun for all who were there to help. Jane Ferguson, Bowen Island

According to the university, Kuzyk made only one complaint while she was working – that interim university president John McKendry had raised his voice, slammed a door and thrown papers down on a desk – and that when the chair and vice-chair of its board of governors met with McKendry, he “emphatically denied engaging in any harassment or improper behaviour.” The Kuzyk claim is seeking unspecified financial compensation.

Adventure abroad

Summer in Serbia White Rock school teacher – and avid traveller – Audrey Painter shares a summer adventure that began with an invitation from a former student. (First in a three-part series) Audrey Painter

I

Special to Peace Arch News  

had to fend off smugglers on a train in Hungary, got attacked by young boys in Macedonia, visited Dracula’s Castle in Romania and spoke to survivors of the Sarajevo siege. This entire adventure started with a conversation with a former student of mine. “Mrs. N?” “Yes, Kristina?” “I am going home for the summer. It will be to where I was born – a small village in Serbia. Would you like to come?” “Yes. Oh, of course. I would love to come,” I said, thinking I will have to pick a good time to tell my husband that I will be away for yet another summer in some faraway country. Audrey Painter “Good. You can meet my grandmother. You will love it in Mokrin.” Marvelous travels start with simple conversations such as this one. It was February 2010. I bought a return ticket to Belgrade and took the world atlas to find the city on a map.  I knew approximately where Serbia was, but I wanted to know more about the neighbouring countries. I was delighted that they were Bosnia, Romania, Hungary and Croatia. Bulgaria and Macedonia were also near.  I bought The Lonely Planet for Eastern Europe. I was going to spend the summer in (and around) Serbia. • • •  I had met Kristina Golic when she was a Grade 9 student in my mathematics class at Semiahmoo Secondary. We were both immigrants to Canada, she from Serbia and I from South Africa. We both spoke English as a second language, and we stuck to our homeland traditions.  I met Kristina’s mother, Zorica, at a parent-teacher interview and saw one of the first photos of Mila, the new baby sister to Kristina and her two younger brothers. Years passed. Kristina went to university, and we talked occasionally, as students and

their former teachers do. Then, on that marvelous day in February, she invited me to meet her grandmother in northern Serbia. • • •  I arrived in Belgrade one Sunday night in June.  I had my instructions written in my notebook, as Zorica, Kristina and Mila had arrived the week before. I had to take a bus to Mokrin, without speaking a word of Serbian, at night. The family was to meet me at the bus stop in Kikinda – a larger town close to Mokrin – and would drive me home.

These plans sound easy, if you are wellrested and in your hometown. After a exhausting flight from Vancouver via London to Belgrade, I was petrified. Kikinda was far.  On the Lonely Planet map, Mokrin did not exist, and Kikinda was a little dot near Romania. I bought a bus ticket and took a seat in the middle of the bus. I tried to blend – to look relaxed and Serbian. This meant I did not open my mouth and gave fake smiles to friendly passengers. It was pitch dark in rural Serbia as we drove north. At first, I was afraid, then

scared, and then, after more than two hours in a dark bus, I was terrified. Nobody spoke English, and all those awful ‘what if?” questions popped up in my mind. What if: someone robbed me? I ended up in Hungary? Kristina and family did not wait in Kikinda? This was the wrong bus? What if someone abducted me from this small country in Eastern Europe and sold me for my organs? (Jetlagged, at 10 at night, I have a vivid imagination.) In Kikinda, of course, Kristina and her aunt awaited me. We drove home to the quaint village of Mokrin where my adventures began. • • •  Serbia was my base, and I traveled with Kristina to Hungary by train, where we had to fend off real smugglers in our compartment, and where Kristina had her mother’s passport instead of her own – stories for another day. After that, I traveled by myself to Bosnia, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria and Macedonia. It was by train, bus, plane, taxi and on foot.  I collected stories, music and memories. At times, in the Balkan countries and Eastern Europe, I became exhausted, terrified and teary.  More often, though, I was in awe on all these paths through these countries, on roads less traveled – and certainly not by solo women travellers. Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less travelled by, And that has made all the difference – Robert Frost. NEXT EDITION: Smugglers on a train.

‘Pack the Police Car’ raises thousands The final tally is in for the Surrey RCMP’s summer “Pack the Police Car” campaign. Over the course of four days – Aug. 14-17 – the effort collected more than $3,300 in cash and 3,000 pounds of food for the Surrey Food Bank’s new 65-plus seniors distribution depot. “This is a tremendous showing of support from the community,” Marilyn Herrmann, executive director for the Surrey Food Bank, said in a statement. “Working with great partners such as the Surrey RCMP helps us raise our profile and donations and ensure that some of the more senior members of our com-

munity have their nutrition needs taken care of.”   Collection sites were set up outside four PriceSmart Foods Surrey locations, including Newton and Cloverdale. Insp. Garry Begg credited the campaign’s success on citizen generosity. “Our community is always willing to give and this time, made a true and positive difference in the lives of  our senior citizens who need it the most,” he said. The Surrey Food Bank accepts donations year-round. For more information Contributed photo or to donate, visit www.surreyfoodbank. RCMP and volunteers with donations. org

your sign

Aug 27 - Aug. 31, 2013 ARIES

LIBRA

Aries, you have some shopping to do, but it is better if you space out your purchases and conserve your funds. A surprise bill may pop up and catch you off guard.

Libra, you are expected to lead the way for others, even though you do not have all of the answers. Don't worry, you work well under pressure and others will follow your lead.

TAURUS

SCORPIO

Taurus, recreational plans may have to take a back seat to responsibilities at work this week. Just when you thought you were done with all of your assignments, some extra work finds you.

Your career could be coming to a crossroads, Scorpio. Start networking now as much as possible so you are in a better position should you need to make a move.

GEMINI

SAGITTARIUS

Gemini, you may feel as though you are alone this week. All it takes is a phone call or email to have some company if you feel the need. Don't hesitate to make a connection.

Sagittarius, jump into something new if you feel like taking chances. Even if your leap of faith doesn't reap any rewards, you will feel better for having tried.

CAPRICORN

CANCER It may be difficult to get to the heart of a matter that has monopolized your time, Cancer. But some things will come to light soon enough if you remain patient.

Capricorn, you may end up getting blamed for something that isn't your fault. Bide your time and the truth will come out. Accept the apologies of those who were quick to blame.

LEO

AQUARIUS

There is no easy way out of a tricky situation involving some friends. You will end up in hot water if you take one's side over the other. The best thing to do is remain neutral.

Aquarius, try not to overdo things when you are met with a burst of creative energy this week. You may start more projects than you can possibly handle.

PISCES

VIRGO

Pisces, so much is going on this week that you will need to organize your thoughts and manage your time effectively. You're up to the task.

Virgo, this week brings a chance to get rid of old habits that have been keeping you from putting your best foot forward. Take advantage of this opportunity.

Friends, food and fun at Royale Pacifica A

s you walk through the doors of the Royale Pacifica Resort Retirement Living, you’re greeted with a flurry of excitement and activity. Cheerful residents on their way to take part in the day’s recreational activities, friendly staff lending a helping hand and a feeling of vibrancy you may not expect to find at a retirement community. But for the 200 residents who call the Royale Pacifica home – in large, luxury suites they can rent or own – life at this elegant resort community, often likened to a grandiose cruiseship, is anything but ordinary. On this particular day, staff and residents are preparing to take part in the Royale Summer Games, and have invited their sister residences from the community to take part in some friendly competition. It’s one of dozens of special events the Pacifica hosts throughout the year, according to recreation manager Karen Gill, who works closely with residents to plan activities and events they are passionate about. “We offer something for everyone,” Karen said. “We focus on all the domains – physical, emotional, social, new learning – and our calendar is really geared to our residents’ interests and needs.” From the classic activities such as bingo, bridge and crib, to exciting new endeavours like Latin Fitness and karaoke,

the Royale Pacifica is always buzzing with excitement. “We don’t give residents the opportunity to say ‘there’s nothing to do,” Karen said, noting the response and impact the social calendar has on residents’ well-being is phenomenal. “We can’t keep up with them!” With so much excitement and activity at the Royale Pacifica, it’s essential that residents keep their energy levels up with healthy, nutritious and tasty meals. And thanks to Chef Chris Kluftinger, who joined the team earlier this summer, residents are enjoying freshlymade, gourmet meals like never before. As a certified Chef de Cuisine – currently the highest designation available in Canada

Contributed photo

– Chef Chris brings decades of experience in the kitchen to the Royale Pacifica. His past endeavours include owning two restaurants and a B&B, working in large hotels and convention centres, running a catering company and travelling all over the world perfecting his culinary craft. He’s thrilled to be working in a more ‘intimate’ venue at the Royale Pacifica, and is enjoying the challenge of striving to suite the variety of tastes and preferences of such a diverse population. “People who come to you on a daily basis for food, they need variety and healthy choices,” Chef Chris explained. “It’s one thing to have a restaurant where people come once every two or three months, and you can serve them something super rich. But you don’t want to eat like that every day.” Chef Chris meets with residents regularly to get feedback and suggestions for items they’d like to see on the menu, and he and his staff work hard to implement as many as possible. He also strives to introduce new foods to the residents, things they may not have had the opportunity to try before, which are usually quite well-received. Although, he admits, using the traditional names of such dishes can sometimes lead to confusion among the residents.

Chef Chris Kluftinger prepares a fresh meal in Royale Pacifica’s kitchen. At left, the retirement resort’s recent 9-11 appreciation event. “The running joke is, ‘what language is this?’” he laughed. Chef Chris will be hosting an event called Tastes of the Pacifica on Sept. 5 from 3-4 p.m., where he’ll be doing a cooking demo as well as chatting with guests. To RSVP for this tasty event – space is limited – please call 604-5359194. While it’s obvious there is a true sense of community among residents and staff at the Royale Pacifica, both groups work hard to reach out to the White Rock/ South Surrey community on a regular basis, hosting events to raise funds and awareness for important local causes. Each holiday season, the

residents host a Festival of Trees, which raises thousands of dollars for local organizations. And earlier this month, the Royale Pacifica hosted its annual 9-11 Appreciation Barbecue, where they dedicated the fourth floor in honour of Surrey Firefighters, the Burn Unit and 911 responders, and residents raised more than $600. “The residents are very involved and passionate about taking part in the community,” Karen pointed out.

Shedding pounds after hitting the big 5-0 Taking smart approaches to diet and exercise can help trim the fat as you get older

L

osing some weight is a goal for many people regardless of age. While youngsters and young adults might be able to get away with a few extra pounds without suffering any significant consequences, older adults carrying some extra weight might be putting their overall health at considerable risk. Shedding weight after the age of 50 is not always easy. As a person ages, muscle mass tends to dwindle while body fat has a tendency to increase. Since fat burns fewer calories than muscle, weight gain as a person ages is bound to happen. But that doesn’t mean such weight gain is inevitable. In fact, men and women willing to make certain changes with regard to diet and exercise can shed pounds after 50 while preventing future weight gain.

Diet

Men and women need fewer calories as they age. For example, men and women in their 40s may need as many as 200 calories more per day than they will when they reach their 50s. Counting calories might seem difficult, so men and women in their 50s and older who don’t think they can count calories can try to eat more low-calorie foods like fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Consuming fewer calories often requires changing dietary habits, not only with regard to what you’re eating but also how you’re eating and even how you shop for food. Men and women used to dining out for lunch

Thinkstock photo

Incorporating regular exercise into your routine is one way to help you lose a few pounds. every day can start making their own lunches so they can gain greater control of their daily caloric intake. For those who find they’re frequently too exhausted to cook each night, they can prepare meals in advance to have healthy, homemade meals waiting instead of always ordering takeout or delivery. When shopping for food, people should avoid doing so on an empty stomach so they’re less inclined to buy unhealthy snacks.

Exercise

Exercise is another essential component to shedding pounds after 50, though men and women over 50 should always consult a physician before they begin a new exercise regimen. The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention points out that regular exercise can help older men and women prevent the onset of a host of ailments, including heart disease and diabetes. In addition, the CDC notes that regular

physical activity as one ages helps muscles grow stronger, which increases the chances that an individual will be able to perform necessary daily activities without the assistance of others. Maintaining that independence into older adulthood is a goal for many men and women, and it’s a goal that’s far more realistic for men and women who exercise than it is for those who don’t. When coupled with a healthy diet, routine exercise can help men and women over 50 shed extra weight and keep the weight off once it’s gone. According to the CDC, older adults need at least two hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity, such as brisk walking, every week and muscle-strengthening activities on two more days a week. These musclestrengthening activities should work all the major muscle groups, including the legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders and arms. Muscle-strengthening activities include lifting weights, working out with resistance bands, exercise such as push-ups and sit-ups that use body weight for resistance, and yoga. Even gardening can be considered a musclestrengthening activity. Weight gain is often an expected side effect of aging. But men and women don’t have to gain weight as they get older. Some simple dietary changes and a commitment to routine exercise is all it takes to shed weight after 50 and keep that weight off once it’s gone.

Autumn can be

this much fun!

Life is just better with friends. Stop worrying about the daily pressures of preparing meals and raking the leaves. Let us take care of that. Spend more time with family and friends.

With a commitment to customer satisfaction and nearly 100 years of combined industry experience, Check Point Plumbing is proud to offer top-notch, knowledgeable service you can count on. Whether it’s a clogged sink, a leaky hot water tank or a gas fireplace on the fritz, the team at Check Point Plumbing will get the job done quickly and accurately, according to co-owner Beth Henderson. “We do the job right the first time and ensure that the customer is satisfied,” Henderson said. “We’re very proud of the work we do.” With winter upon us, it’s the time of year many homeowners think about replacing their old, inefficient furnace with a newer and more efficient model. In some respects, today’s high-efficiency furnaces, which generally start around $4,000, are better engineered than the $30,000 car you drive off the lot. With up to 95 per cent efficiency, more heat goes into your home than up the chimney with older models. Redesigned heat exchangers – complete with recovery coils – better insulation with state-of-theart controls and energy-efficient blower motors, some with four speeds and quiet as a whisper, all provide long-lasting comfort. High and low-fire gas valves combined with variable speed blowers provide the perfect amount of heat required – for warmer days, the gas valve fires on low mode and the blower cuts in on low speed; for cold days, both the gas valve and the blower operate on high to bring your home up to a set temperature, where it will stay comfortably. Also important is a good digital thermostat to replace the old mechanical style you may still have. The friendly folks at Check Point Plumbing would be more than happy to visit your home to check out your existing unit and make some recommendations. With an emphasis on providing great customer service and competitive pricing, Check Point Plumbing is your best choice for all your plumbing, heating and gas fitting needs.

Tammi Larocque fundraising to help Nicaraguan village

Field of hope Nick Greenizan

A

Sports Reporter

n Ocean Park woman whose three sons grew up on local baseball fields is hoping an upcoming project she’s spearheading in Nicaragua will give youth there the same opportunity. Tammi Larocque, along with a handful of friends and family members, is currently fundraising and collecting gently used baseball equipment – uniforms, bases, cleats, catcher’s gear and more – which she’s planning to send, via ❝My boys container, to the fishing grew up village of Jiquilillo, playing Nicaragua in midbaseball so September. it’s something And following the shipment of the I wanted container, Larocque and to do.❞ her team of volunteers Tammi Larocque will head to the small beachside village – on the country’s west coast, about 180 km from the country’s capital city of Managua – to not only distribute the gear, but to also build a baseball field for the area’s youngsters. The shipping container will arrive a few months after it leaves B.C., and Larocque’s group will fly to Nicaragua in mid-December, and stay for three weeks. She figures it will take about 10 days to build the field. She’ll make the trip with her three grown sons and two of their girlfriends, and said they’ll recruit more volunteer help when they get there. “They’ve never played on anything other than beaches before,” Larocque explained. “It’s a town of about 1,800 people, so they don’t get these types of projects too often. I think there will be a lot of young boys eager to help out to build this field.” Larocque is aiming to raise $7,000 for the project, and has collected about $4,000 thus far, through donations from people in the community. In addition to Larocque, the effort is being spearheaded by Don Montgomery, a Port Alberni teacher who lives part-time in Jiquilillo, where he runs a surf shop/beach lodge. In the past, Montgomery has given back

Above, Tammi Larocque shows off some of the sports equipment she’s collected, which will be shipped to Nicaragua, where residents (left) play on beaches without proper gear.

to his adopted community by promoting “social tourism”, building schools, sponsoring youth baseball teams and more. Larocque, who met Montgomery through a mutual friend, wanted to help, too, and suggested building a baseball field – with goalposts on either side, so it can double as a soccer pitch – on a property Montgomery owned and upon which is planning to build a high-school trade school.

“(Montgomery) told me he he’d wanted to build a field for about five years but it was just never in the budget, so I just decided to take it on myself,” Larocque said. “My boys grew up playing baseball so it’s something I wanted to do.” So far, fundraising and equipment collection – which also includes gardening tools and lawnmowers for the field – has gone well, Larocque said.

FRI.,SEPT. 13 PREGAME TAILGATE PARTY AT 4PM Don’t miss out on the fun!

“The support from people here has just been amazing. Everyone’s been so supportive.” Once the field is built, Larocque said its Montgomery’s goal to host youth baseball teams from around the world, who will come and take on the local squads. “The players down there, they’re phenomenal. They just don’t have (the resources) we have,” she said. “I think the village is going to go nuts.” Larocque has set up a blog to document the project – www.fieldofhope.wordpress. com – and is also still collecting donations of both money and equipment. For more information, or to donate, email Lacrocque at ugottammi@gmail.com

Eagles back on ice The BC Hockey League season is right around the corner. The Surrey Eagles – coming off a championship season in which they advanced all the way to the Royal Bank Cup – held training camp last week at South Surrey Arena, and played their first two preseason games on the weekend, both against the Chilliwack Chiefs. Surrey has one more preseason game on the docket – Thursday in Chilliwack, also against the Chiefs – before the regular season begins with the BCHL Showcase,

which will see all 16 teams play a series of games in Chilliwack. Surrey’s first game of the Showcase is slated for Sept. 6 against the West Kelowna Warriors, and the following day they’ll also square off against Vernon – and former teammates Jordan Klimek and Demico Hannoun, who were dealt to the Okanagan club in the offseason. After the showcase event, the Eagles will return home for two straight games – the home-opener is set for Friday, Sept. 13 against the Langley Rivermen.

OBITUARIES

BANJEGLAV, Steven In loving memory of my dear husband Steven Banjeglav who passed away August 8, 2013. Four days before our 24 year anniversary of marriage. I was with Steven every day to make certain he was comfortable. I want to thank Evergreen Baptist Care Home Staff that enabled Steven (my very much loved husband) until his last moment and to be able to accompany him at the end of his life. I also give thanks to my friends Savo and Milena Savojac for their friendship, love and understanding at this time and for many years before. Steven will be missed by many friends in Winnipeg, Manitoba 1966 - 1999, and also many friends from White Rock over the last 24 years. Steven was 88 years old. Steven my dear husband, I love you and will miss you forever. Your loving wife Jela.

Passed away peacefully in the Al Hogg Pavilion on Thursday, Aug. 22 at the age of 90. Lyn was predeceased by her husband Jim, sisters Lila and Alma, and brothers Allan and Lewis. She is survived by one brother, Gordon, of Fergus, Ontario, daughter Brenda, granddaughters Kacey (Bryan), Carley, Nicole (Dean), and Jolene (Russ), and 3 great grandchildren, Aidyn, Finn, and Kyah. Lyn was known for her care for others and her infectious smile. She had been active in the United Church, Rotaryanns and Eastern Star in her homes in Lloydminster and Maple Creek, SK., Calgary, and White Rock. She was very active in the community where she has lived and was very giving of her time helping others.
