Manhunt after Cloverdale homicide Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Barry McQuarrie police warning

One man is dead following a latenight shooting in Cloverdale Monday, and police are cautioning the public against approaching a man they suspect is connected to the attack. Police officers with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said that – as of Peace Arch News press time Wednesday afternoon – Barry McQuarrie, 33, should be considered

“armed and dangerous.” The warning follows investigation into the death of 32-year-old Gregory Quesnelle, who was shot just before midnight Monday at a townhouse in the 17400-block of 57 Avenue. Quesnelle, who is originally from southern Ontario, died in hospital. Police said the next day that while the victim had a criminal record, the shooting was not gang- or organized crimerelated, but appears to be connected to

an ongoing domestic dispute. McQuarrie, they noted, has outstanding warrants unrelated to the homicide. As of press time, he had not been charged in connection with the shooting. On Tuesday, IHIT issued an alert for an “associated vehicle of interest” – a blue 2010 Kia Borrego SUV which they said may have been stolen. That night, the vehicle was discovered in South Surrey, when Surrey RCMP and firefighters responded to a report

of a vehicle on fire at an industrial complex at 28 Avenue and 192 Street. Police say the occupants of the Cloverdale home where Quesnelle was shot are known to them, although it has not yet been determined if that is pertinent to the current investigation. McQuarrie has a history in the court system, including charges for violent offences, drug possession, theft and break-and-enter. i see page 4

White Rock strike amps up

Councillor frustrated outside of picket line Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Picket lines outside White Rock City Hall this week left one councillor frustrated for not fulfilling his civic duties. Coun. Grant Meyer said he arrived at city hall just after 5 p.m. Monday, to attend an incamera meeting, to be followed by a scheduled public hearing and regular council meeting. ❝Honouring But upon discovering that pickets that went up that morn(the picket) ing remained, his plans were is the right stymied. As a union member thing to do, himself – he belongs to the but still….❞ BC Ferries and Marine WorkGrant Meyer ers Union – Meyer would not cross the picket line. “It’s very frustrating,” he told Peace Arch News as he sat in his truck in front of city hall. “This is why people voted for me and raised concerns, but I have to respect the picket.” CUPE 402-01 began the full-scale strike, following rotating job action that launched May 1. The step means that – with the exception of city hall – all city facilities are closed until further notice. In addition, garbage and recycling pickup and leisure-services classes are on hold.

Coun. Grant Meyer discusses city business in his truck with former MLA Ken Jones – outside picket lines – while council meets inside. In announcing the ramped-up job action Sunday afternoon, CUPE said picket lines will be up at city facilities from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and at the public works yard from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Meyer said that he checked with his union earlier Monday as to whether he could cross, in case the city-hall line continued through the council meeting. He said he got their OK, but only on the condition that he obtain a “picket pass” from CUPE 402-01. When he asked the CUPE local, “they said no.”

“(BCMWU) are kind of disappointed,” Meyer added. “Honouring it is the right thing to do, but still…” Meyer said that had he attended, “I could hear about news on the strike and potential solutions, and they’re not letting me in.” Outside city hall, CUPE 402-01 president Mike Guraliuk told PAN that no picket passes would be issued during the strike. The move, he added, “is nothing personal.” i see page 8

Talks scheduled Mediated talks have been scheduled between the City of White Rock and the union representing city employees. The two sides announced the news at about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, with talks scheduled for today (Thursday), according to city spokesperson Shannon Levesque.

Given the reaction of Mayor Wayne Baldwin, who is the former city administrator, union members might want to have Meyer’s perspective inside city hall, for balance purposes, if nothing else. Baldwin said Meyer is an employee, as such, as a member of council and needs to attend meetings. He went on to say that if a meeting is cancelled because of a lack of a quorum, he would hold the union personally responsible. That seems a bit harsh, but it may simply be rhetoric, of which there is no shortage in strike situations, It does not seem to make any sense to keep a member of council from attending a meeting, particularly if he is more sympathetic to your cause than some others may be. Somehow, that does not seem to be a benefit to the strikers or to the union. However, union politics sometimes defy common sense, and this may be one of those cases. The bad news out of this strike, for casual visitors to White Rock, is that pay parking will continue along Marine Drive. Despite the lack of union workers, city managers will continue to hand out tickets and collect fines. Frank Bucholtz writes Thursdays for the Peace Arch News. He is the editor of the Langley Times.

TransLink focuses on improving accessibility for wheelchair and scooter users

White Rock bus stops don’t fare too well Michaela Garstin Staff Reporter

Wheelchair and scooter users may have a difficult time getting on a bus in White Rock. Only 48 of the city’s 100 bus stops are accessible, according to Translink’s Access Transit department. Out of 19 municipalities surveyed, White Rock has the fourth lowest percentage, ahead of Belcarra/Anmore, Pitt Meadows and Port Coquitlam. By comparison, 76 per cent of Surrey’s 1,370 bus stops are accessible. Nearly one-third of people living in White Rock are seniors, making accessible public transportation particularly important in the city. One of the biggest obstacles for wheel-

chairs is a lack of concrete pads at bus stops. “The concrete pads are quite large and it’s challenging to put these in front of homes,” said Greg St. Louis, White Rock’s director of municipal operations, adding the city is aiming to increase the number of wheelchair-accessible bus stops by working with developers when a project is built. But, he added, these results are hindered by the lack of new construction in White Rock. Providing accessible bus stops is difficult for a number of Lower Mainland municipalities because of tough geography, Sarah Chung, Access Transit community relations co-ordinator, told Peace Arch News last week. “We’ll probably never get to 100 per cent because of the grade of certain areas,” she said,

adding that when bus stops aren’t equipped properly, riders with limited mobility are forced to get off at another stop. White Rock is reaching Access Transit’s goal of increasing the number of accessible stops in the Lower Mainland by two per cent each year. Since February 2013, the number has jumped four per cent, while Surrey’s inched up one per cent. St. Louis is aiming to see the number increase similarly in the next few years. Bowen Island and West Vancouver, at 100 and 89 per cent respectively, fared the best in the survey, although only a limited number of stops were examined. Closer to home, Langley’s 340 bus stops have a 74 per cent accessibility rate, while Delta’s 538 stops rated lower, at 51 per cent.

Surrey mayor delivers final state of the city address

Watts looks back on a decade of leadership Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Dianne Watts used her ninth – and final – state of the city address to recap her three terms as Surrey mayor and underline what has been important for her. Watts – after announcing last month she is not running this fall – addressed hundreds of people at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel on Wednesday afternoon, in what was her swan song to civic politics. “In 2005, I gave myself a finite amount of time – no more than three terms – to create a vision, set the vision and execute that vision,” Watts told the crowd. At the outset, she said, she realized there were huge challenges at the helm of a diverse city where 1,000 people were moving every month, where residents spoke more than 95 different languages and where a third of the population was under 19 years old. Watts said that when she was elected mayor, she was at the centre of a city with minimal social infrastructure, one hospital, underfunded schools, roads and other infrastructure and a lack of public transit. “And a split, adversarial council,” Watts said. “But who’s not up for a challenge?

“I needed a team that could see and feel and understand that they too were part of that vision. That’s not to say we agreed on everything, because we didn’t.” However, the team was galvanized by a deep sense of mutual respect, backed, she said, by a tremendously talented city staff who made sure visions could be realized. Most importantly, she said, the community shared a passion for that vision. Establishing healthy public policy was a priority, she said, which included five key areas: stability within the organization, a strong investment climate, integrated social support, quality of life for families and green-friendly infrastructure Stability was enhanced with the creation of policies such as the whistleblower policy, respectful workplace policy, lobbyist registry and a streamlining process. “Stability within an organization is key – not only for the residents, but for privatesector investors, as well,” Watts said. Meanwhile, technology is helping policing, she said, noting that by year end, there will be 250 closed-circuit TV cameras throughout the city. Along with that, a mobile app and online reporting will offer another way

Mayor Dianne Watts addresses crowd. of reporting crimes. There will also be predictive analysis, which will help determine where crimes are most likely to occur. “This is all about efficient, effective and responsive government,” Watts said. Creating social infrastructure has also been important over the last nine years, she said. “Those that are imprisoned in their minds, afflicted with mental-health disorders, need to be supported to find a ray of hope that will give them something to hang on to,” Watts told the crowd. To that end, several policies have been launched, including the crime reduction strategy, poverty reduction strategy, housing

and homelessness master plan, plan for the social wellbeing of Surrey residents, along with a host of other initiatives. The direction has resulted in funding for six outreach workers, a Homelessness and Housing Foundation, the Phoenix Centre for addiction treatment, and many other facilities for those in need. Surrey has also introduced a child and youth friendly city strategy, cultural and public art strategy, walking and cycling plan and age friendly strategy, she noted. Those have resulted in 300 kilometres of trails and pathways, 55 public-art pieces and myriad family oriented events, including the Fusion Festival and Party for the Planet. “As a city, we wanted to ensure that families with small children… have every opportunity to connect to the community,” Watts said. A move to environmentally focused infrastructure has resulted in alternative energy, preservation of green spaces – including 7,900 acres of parkland – and wildlife areas. Surrey has also secured 4,500 acres of land to be preserved and plans to purchase 1,200 more. Watts announced Wednesday that an additional 1,000 acres would be secured and preserved for the public in perpetuity.

Repairs to the south side of Peace Arch Hospital’s Al Hogg Pavilion will continue until August.

Work on Al Hogg Pavilion expected complete by August

PAH repairs progressing Alex Browne Staff Reporter

Repairs to the south side of the Al Hogg Pavilion residential-care facility at Peace Arch Hospital – which has been wrapped in plastic for several months – should be complete by the end of August, according to Fraser Health. “The south side of the building had been experiencing intermittent leaks from wind-driven rain,” said spokesperson Tasleem Juma, who added the problem had been evident for two years prior to the start of the current repair project

at the beginning of April. “The work is on schedule and should be complete by the end of summer,” she said. The building has been swathed in protective sheeting since last fall. “Because of the design and construction of the building, we couldn’t do little fixes,” Juma explained. “We realized the entire building envelope needed to be repaired.” She said that while some residents had been moved inside the facility when the leaks were first

While the cost of repairs is not available, Juma said they had not placed an undue strain on the hospital’s resources. “The work has been part of the operating budget – it hasn’t required additional funding,” she said.

Negotiations on the brink

T

here’s no getting around it. A strike is the worst-case scenario in any labour-management relationship. It’s push coming to shove, and whatever the principles involved, ordinary people can’t help but feel embroiled in an artificial, adversarial position. It’s a situation that tends to bring out the worst on all sides. In the game of brinksmanship – with employers and unions alike advancing pieces across the board and waiting for the adversary to blink – strategy replaces directness, and seeking an early resolution is interpreted as weakness. Some appear to thrive on this kind of warfare; most of us end up suffering from it. In the heat of battle, principles and loyalties come down to a decision to cross or not cross a picket line; ill-considered statements are made, friendships bruised and the normal good will of colleagues battered. We see this tension occur daily, not only with the current strike against the City of White Rock by CUPE workers, but also in the series of escalating teacher job actions. Those who simply say “everyone should get back to work and put an end to my inconvenience” are ignoring the fact that it takes a deal of soul-searching for matters to reach such a pass. Union members who vote for a strike feel they no longer have a choice, just as employers decide they, too, must resist demands. In White Rock, what many took to be a smoothsailing ship has struck what appears to be an iceberg. To the mayor and city manager, the tip – demands for long-term benefits and clearly defined hours – may have seemed hardly worth striking for, but they may be overlooking a great deal under the water that took a long time to form and adds up to a significant rift in the hull. In the school conflict, Education Minister Peter Fassbender may have a fair point when he says that to simply throw money at current problems could lead to ultimate economic disaster. But this, too, overlooks the fact that teachers – who feel they are dealing with over-large class sizes while not keeping pace with compensation levels – have had a lot of time, not to mention provocation, in reaching their current state of dissatisfaction. In both situations, those of us on the sidelines can only hope for a resumption of fair and meaningful negotiations. The time for brinksmanship has passed, once we’ve all hurtled over the edge.

It would be simple, realigning the tracks just south of Blaine to have them cross the border adjacent to the Pacific Highway crossing. The line there could avoid the Semiahmoo Peninsula in its entirety, and would be “at grade” just as is the present route through White Rock. Would it be expensive? Of course. But I suggest that allowing BNSF to convert the right-of-way to beachfront cottage lots, at least along the western portion of the Peninsula through what is known as Ocean Park and Crescent Beach, would more than make up the cost of railway realignment. And, if memory serves me right, the BNSF is owned by Warren Buffet, one of the richest men on Earth and well known as one to never turn down a money-making deal. Warren and BNSF would benefit, as would White Rock, with a substantially increased tax base from those lots, far eclipsing any revenues they may or may not get from the railway that so drastically disrupts its waterfront. Additionally, with a seamless route to the west of White Rock, the trains could travel faster, meaning even more money derived from the savings of time, and Abbotsford would be spared from more rail traffic. It is important that Abbotsford council becomes a player in any discussions relating to BNSF rail realignment. Done the right way, everyone can benefit. Done the wrong way, and the problem has just been shifted from one potential disaster site to another. Mark Rushton writes for the Abbotsford News, sister paper to the Peace Arch News.

Not cancelled, just prioritized Editor: Re: Fraser Health wait times much longer, May 8. Some unfortunate misconceptions have been created about the reduction of surgeries across Fraser Health and I would like to clarify these inaccuracies. Fraser Health is not cancelling surgeries due to budget. Patients that need surgery are getting their surgery. Fraser Health is working within our budget, as we should be, and acting as responsible stewards of the public funding we receive. Fraser Health is the fastestgrowing region in the province. Each year, we perform more than 84,000 surgeries. Our hospitals are responsible for deciding how to manage their individual surgery budgets, and this is done by physicians who prioritize their patient caseloads; ensuring the patients who require immediate or urgent surgery go first. The reality is that this does mean elective, lower priority, less medically needed surgeries may occur over a slightly longer period of time. This is consistent with practice across the province. We understand how frustrating it is for our patients who are waiting for surgery, and we have been working hard with our physician partners to find innovative approaches and solutions to reduce any wait list times and improve our efficiency and effectiveness. For example, we have our Soonest Surgery Tool, which allows patients to access information that provides the names of the surgeons most likely able to perform surgery sooner than others. Fraser Health is committed to working with our physicians to further reduce surgery wait times, ensuring patients receive the quality care they need in a timely manner. Judith Hockney, Fraser Health executive director of surgery

people a number of times over the winter for far more profit. I never knew one can be denied service on the basis I was alone. I mentioned the word “discrimination,” but the owner rudely dismissed the idea. When I walked by 30 minutes later, the restaurant was full – of empty chairs. Businesses on Marine Drive should remember it is the local, loyal customer that keeps you going through the winter period. Just short-term gain will lead to longterm pain for those who ignore and abuse their regulars. Also, the occasional “please” and “thank you” to customers would also help. Peter Davies, Surrey

‘Shame’ is not on the mayor Editor: Re: History-making strikers target mayor, May 6. One unionized City of White Rock employee told Peace Arch News she is shocked that the City of White Rock hasn’t simply caved into CUPE demands in their current contract negotiations. As is typical with union workers these days, anything they decide they would like to have is presented by the union spin doctors as being their ‘right,’ trumpeted as being only ‘fair’ and presented as being the employer’s inherent financially responsibility. In this case, this happens to be disability insurance. Having been a unionized government employee for 24 years,

the worker quoted seems to be oblivious to what workers in the real world would do in her situation. They would go out and buy it themselves. Meanwhile union local president Mike Guraliuk climbs up onto his soapbox and yells “shame” into a megaphone while being supported by of a bunch of rental protestors in front of city hall. Indignation is expressed towards the mayor of White Rock for the city not having simply capitulated to the union at every turn in their current contract negotiations. Shameless public-relations stunts like this can be expected to continue ad nauseam as long as the strike drags on and the union thinks it will gain them some public support. Kudos to Mayor Wayne Baldwin for taking a common-sense approach to this issue and speaking up for the beleaguered taxpayers of this community. Glen Gerow, White Rock

Park planners pass us by Editor: It’s not about trains; it’s about the equitable distribution of revenue and burden. Trains deliver goods that keep our economy working. The regions south of the Fraser River are being forced by federal and provincial governments to become toxic-waste industrial parks. Delta, Surrey, and White Rock, shall, it seems, shut up and accept this role. They should quietly watch freight grow five times along their unprotected

foreshore. They shall dutifully export all goods from their ports. In exchange for this blind servitude, south-dwelling taxpayers have the right to pack their children and bicycles into minivans. Loaded, they shall drive to Victoria and Vancouver and marvel at the wonders their governments have created. Created, at the expense of their own neighbourhoods, their families and their future. Boundary Bay can match or best any vista along the West Coast Trail, Galloping Goose or Stanley Park Seawall. Why is it not an iconic park for the million taxpayers living next to it? More to the point, why are the federal and provincial governments playing DOT-111 roulette in the backyard of South Fraser municipalities? Port Metro Vancouver, B.C. and the federal government have spent a billion dollars upgrading the eastwest CN/CP corridor leading to Deltaport. They’ve spent nothing on the north-south BNSF corridor that now accounts for almost half of all freight traffic. Freight on U.S. trains, piloted by U.S. staff, carrying U.S. oil and U.S. coal, along a Canadian foreshore. Freight that crosses a 100-year-old swing bridge, on a track that is 100 feet below an unstable mud bluff, that is inaccessible by first responders from land or sea, and that has no spillage containment. A track that trestles the Campbell, Nicomekl, and Serpentine rivers, carving a path meters from the edge of the bay. Boundary Bay needs an iconic park and seawall. People south of the Fraser require an ocean playground where they live. Their backyard is already paying for it. Erik Seiz, Surrey

Shortsighted lack of service Editor: Last weekend I walked into an empty White Rock restaurant alone. I sat at a table set for four because all the tables in the restaurant were set that way. I was told by a woman, who I presumed to be an owner, that I could not sit in the chair I was sitting in. I offered to move elsewhere but I was told I could not sit at any four-set table because the owner just remembered they were “reserved.” I understand the business would prefer to have money from four as opposed to one person. However, I have been a regular at that restaurant for years and usually bring five or six family members at a time. So, for the sake of getting three more people into an empty restaurant for a bit more money, the restaurant has lost a very regular customer that often brings four

Surrey’s tree bylaw should leave large tracts of trees intact but give landowners flexibility, writes David Sellars.

Simple to protect trees, owners Editor: Re: Cost of cutting down trees, May 8 column. Columnist Frank Bucholtz provided a good summary of the weaknesses in the Surrey tree bylaw. He notes that trees are rarely retained in single-family developments because of the large building footprints relative to the size of the lots. However, there is a simple way around this. Locations where there are significant stands of trees should be developed as larger lots or left intact as public space. This would avoid the ugly cookie-cutter lot development that we now enjoy in Morgan Heights. Unfortunately, we rarely see effective tree retention in Surrey because council considers the interests of

developers above those of the general public. Furthermore, the city should respect the capabilities of individual property owners to manage their own landscape. We should be allowed to cut down one tree a year if needed as part of overall garden maintenance. For example, it is not feasible to grow a successful vegetable garden without adequate hours of sunshine, and large trees can create too much shade. The tree bylaw would be significantly improved by more effective implementation for new developments and providing flexibility for individual property owners to maintain a sustainable lifestyle. David Sellars, Surrey

Garbage pickup a concern i from page 1 Another unionized worker noted no one is being prevented from crossing. While Meyer was the only council member to miss Monday’s meetings, he wasn’t the only person who opted not to cross the picket line. Shaw Cable did not film council proceedings for TV viewers, and at least one regular council-watcher also did not cross. Ken Jones – a former councillor and Liberal MLA – cited his roles as a former shop steward and convention delegate in the decision. He spent much of the evening chatting in Meyer’s truck. Meyer said he remained outside city hall – for about three hours – mainly to explain why he wasn’t going inside. He said one woman described the line as “kind of obstructing democracy.” In addition to walking outside the building, picketers chanted their message near meeting-room windows. Meyer said he is holding off worrying about the possibility that the strike could go on long enough to threaten his council seat. If the job action isn’t resolved in due course, “then I’m going to have to make a decision,” he said. City manager Dan Bottrill told PAN there are options council can explore, noting a Community Charter provision says elected officials can miss meetings for no more than 60 days or four consecutive, regularly scheduled council meetings – whichever is longer – unless the absence is due to illness or injury, or is with the leave of council.

Bottrill said the city “doesn’t have a position” on Meyer’s absence, but noted “it’s disappointing that the union took the position that it did.” Coun. Al Campbell, a former union member, told PAN he has “absolutely” no concerns over council members crossing the picket line. At the same time, he respects Meyer’s decision. “He’s a councillor for the City of White Rock, he does have a job to do, but it is a decision he made. I can’t criticize him for that,” Campbell said. “I respect what he did but it may not have been the call that I would’ve made.” Coun. Helen Fathers said she felt awkward crossing, but “I had to do my job as a councillor. I felt weird, I had a pit in my stomach for sure, because of the human level. You’re walking past people that you’re friendly with.” Fathers said the issue of Meyer possibly missing a number of meetings due to job action was discussed by council, but not in front of the public: “When he wasn’t there, we all kind of went… ‘what’s going on?’ The discussion was, if the strike goes on for a long time, does that mean that Grant’s not going to be there for a long time? You can only miss so many council meetings before things change.” Fathers and Meyer both said they are hearing from residents concerned about the strike. The majority, they said, talk about garbage pickup. “I’ve had so many phone calls,” Fathers said.

Fatigue, weight gain, poor memory/concentration, constipation, hair loss, dry skin, feeling cold – these are all symptoms of an underactive thyroid. There is a lot of controversy around whether the lab reference ranges for thyroid hormones are enough to guide treatment of hypothyroid. NOW Thyroid Energy is a natural supplement containing ashwagandha- a popular herbal supplement for a wide array of health conditions, including hypothyroidism. Animal studies suggest that it increases endogenous production of T4. NOW Thyroid Energy also contains tyrosine (a precursor to T4), selenium and zinc (crucial components of the enzymes responsible for converting inactive thyroid hormone T4 into its active form T3), and guggul- an Ayurvedic herb that stimulates the conversion of T4 to T3. NOW Thyroid Energy is available without a prescription, but this does not mean it cannot interact with your prescription drugs.

Senior loses ICBC claim Sheila Reynolds Black Press

A Surrey senior will not be reimbursed by ICBC for the torching of his luxury car after failing to convince a B.C. Supreme Court judge that his Mercedes was stolen before being lit on fire in 2009. Hankar Singh, 78, sued ICBC after the insurer denied his claim. He lost his lawsuit last week, after a trial last October. It was four years earlier, on Oct. 24, 2009, when Singh’s 2007 E-350 Mercedes-Benz was found burning near 123 Street and 103A Avenue. A nearby resident felt his house shake and looked out the window to see the car on fire, with flames shooting 20 feet into the air. The fire was a 15-minute drive from Singh’s home on Grosvenor Road in North Surrey. During the trial, the court heard that the Mercedes was worth about $90,000 and that Singh had ordered it from Germany in early 2007. Singh testified briefly, saying he parked the vehicle on the street after visiting his sister the night of the fire because there was no room in the driveway. He said he had one set of keys and a second that he had misplaced. He denied the second set had been lost or stolen. The car’s insurance, which was to expire a week after the fire, included replacement cost. The policy permitted ICBC to replace the vehicle within 30 days of its

loss. If not able to do so, the home – where Prasad lived – three insured would receive the pur- times early the next morning. chase price.

Canadians provide lifeline for Zimbabwe Sarah Massah

Staff Reporter

ust a month after her return from Zimbabwe, Susan Janetti is already thinking about what more she can do to help those struggling with crippling poverty in the African country she was born in. The Ocean Park woman recently wrapped up her latest project April 3 – filling and shipping a 40-foot container of desperately needed donated items to the southern African country – and is focusing on her next. Janetti, who founded the charitable organization Zimbabwe Gecko Society in 2008 with her husband, Frank, is working on bringing Canadian doctors to Zimbabwe in order to provide aid and education. She will be working with Dr. Ray

Markham, the medical director of the UBC Rural Continuing Professional Development Program, to find doctors – and funding – to support the program. “Ray and his wife, Allison, joined us in Zimbabwe and now we’re working together and we’re going to put in a health component,” Janetti said, noting Markham, like herself, is originally from Zimbabwe. For the last three years, Janetti has been running the society largely on her own, as her husband battles cancer. And even though she’s tough enough to take on the task, she admitted help is needed. “I’m getting old. I’m over 65,” she said. “Because it’s just me and the work is multiplying, we are looking for corporate sponsorship.” Funding would support the

doctors travelling to Zimbabwe, where more and more people are going to the hospital, not to get better, but to die, Janetti said. Now, by having a health component, donations can be made directly towards medical care and saving lives. The couple’s first project was building an orphanage 21 years ago to bring relief to families caring for children whose parents had passed away. Previously, there were no orphanages, as the children were simply absorbed into the relatives’ family, Janetti explained. “But because of the situation with the money collapsing, lack of food and the amount of people dying daily, they couldn’t care for these children anymore,” she said. Then, in 2008, amid financial turmoil in Zimbabwe due to

hyperinflation, Janetti founded the society in order to increase support to those hit the hardest. “People were dying of cholera, starvation – just literally dying by the hundreds – so we thought, we can’t do much, but we can do a little,” she said. Janetti was quick to add that while she is often on the frontlines in Zimbabwe, none of the work she has done would have been possible without the outpouring of support she has received from her community. “We really have to thank them,” she said. “They have been incredible.” In the years since the society has formed, the Janettis have helped bring clean water and sanitation to communities in Zimbabwe, as well as farming program Foundations for Farming, which teaches

sustainable farming methods. “We work as a community, not individuals,” Janetti said. “Everyone that took a farming course had to teach 10 more.” Though it has been hard work for the couple for the last two decades, the rewards are far greater, Janetti said. She recalled her most recent trip and the reaction once the big, blue container was opened. “We had people weep over things we throw away after one use. For the medical supplies, they were literally crying,” she said. “I remember asking ‘why are they so happy for such a little gift?’ and the reply was, ‘they have more now than they did 10 minutes ago.’ “Something about that just sticks with me.” For more information, visit www. zimbabwegecko.com/

Surrey teen trained by last year’s champ

Skate like no one’s watching Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Dillanger Kane doesn’t invest much time in skateboarding competitively. But a natural ability is bringing him to the Cloverdale Rodeo this weekend to compete against some of the best in the sport. The 18-year-old Surrey resident’s first encounter with boarding came from a friend of his sister’s three years ago. It was Ryan Brynelson, winner of last year’s Cloverdale Rodeo championship. Brynelson taught Kane some technical routines, and the proverbial hook was set. Dillanger describes himself as a “hermit” with his skateboarding, meaning he doesn’t compete that much. The competition at the rodeo this year (amateur class) will be his biggest event of his skateboarding experience.

Despite his casual approach to competition, he’s been placed within the top five in his category. He describes himself as a techoriented skater who prefers learning complex tricks, like a no-footed handstand kick-flip. That’s where the board is flipped on its side, then without touching feet to the ground, he goes into a handstand. It’s a highly technical trick that took a long time to perfect. The key to competing is getting into the right head space, Kane says. He has a trick for getting there. “I skate like no one is watching,” Kane says. He puts in his ear buds and cranks his music, likely Cage the Elephant’s Ain’t no rest for the wicked. When Dillanger isn’t boarding, he’s going to school parttime, on his way into the field of computer sciences.

Dorothy Sharpe celebrates a milestone birthday.

White Rock woman turns 100

WHITE ROCK MONEY MART 1812 152nd Street

As Sharpe ‘as a tack’ Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

White Rock’s Dorothy Sharpe marked her 100th birthday last weekend exactly how she wanted – in the company of her beloved family. The England-born mother, grandmother and great-grandmother turned the milestone age on May 9, with her family – including her son and family who flew in from Ontario – organizing a birthday bash for her the following Saturday. “I keep thinking it’s someone else,” Sharpe said Friday. “I’ve lived a good life. I made a lot of friends.” The centenarian noted during her 100 years, a number of memories stand out, more than she could possibly share. “I could write a book on my memories,” she laughed. Sharpe was born in England in 1914, and

survived the Second World War with a newborn baby while her husband fought the Nazis with the navy. After the war was over, the Sharpes emigrated to Canada, settling in Toronto until 1972, before moving to Vancouver Island. Finally, Sharpe moved to White Rock in 1986 to live with her daughter, Pamela Montgomery, when her husband fell ill. And while she has lived an extensive life, Sharpe can remember details from decades past. “She’s as sharp as a tack,” Montgomery laughed. Saint George the Martyr Parish will also host an afternoon tea on May 18 after their 1:30 service in honour of Sharpe’s milestone birthday. All are invited to the church, 1480 George St., for refreshments and to celebrate Sharpe.

New team name and logo for elementary school

Laronde Lynx come to life

L Wto our L invites you warmly

Community Memorial Service

Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

Thursday, May 22nd at 7:00 p.m.

Students at Laronde Elementary have voted, and the South Surrey school has unveiled its new team name and logo. The school was tasked with finding a new team name to replace Lakers, after principal Johane Fortin pointed out that the current name did not reflect the spirit of the school. After a careful search, the Laronde Lynx was the winner. “I was asking students and parents and staff ‘why are we the Lakers?’ and ‘what’s a Laker?’ Nobody could tell me, it was just the way it was,” she said. “And the fact that we’re a French-immersion school, it was important for us to get a name that could be used in both French and English.” Fortin noted that the school changed orientation three years ago from a French and English program, to a French-only program. Hoping that the school could find a team name that would fit that change, Fortin called upon students, staff and parents to help organize a competition. One of the criteria for the team name was that it had to be spelled the same in English and French. After a number of student submissions, the committee cut the list down to a few options and then asked students to vote. After Lynx was chosen for the team name, the time came to find a matching logo, prompting another search, with students again choosing their favourite. The winner of the logo search was Grade

‌on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Richard Tetrault’s work to brighten Centennial Park

Murals come to life Alex Browne Arts Reporter

W

hite Rock-raised visual artist Richard Tetrault has painted murals as far afield as Argentina and Cuba – as well as celebrated work in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside and Port Coquitlam. But his current project – a White Rock city commission for a solo mural on the Semiahmoo Arts building in Centennial Park – marks the first time he’s done such work in the town where he spent 20 crucial formative years. The mural – and a second collaborative one, the artists of which he mentors, on the adjacent Leisure Services building – is due for completion at the end of May, Tetrault said. Son of the late Wynn Tetrault – a founding member of White Rock Players Club – the artist has a strong and inevitable sentimental attachment to the community that still claims him as one of its own. And his role as one of the key players in the apparent artistic renaissance on the Peninsula – under the aegis of Semiahmoo Arts – has been been confirmed by his being a featured ‘master artist’ at last year’s inaugural International Artist Day Festival, and a presentation he made to White Rock council last fall on the transformative possibilities of the mural. “It’s a real flashback coming back and working in the area,� Tetrault acknowledged, squinting in the strong afternoon sun Monday, as he supervised his group of trainee muralists, including Mallery Donen, Jeff Wilson, Adam Lipschultz and newest recruit Jolayne De Vente. “My dad, John, coached hockey just down here at Centennial Arena,� he added, chuckling that his current assignment is a breeze compared with some of his other mural work in Vancouver’s more urban environment. “I don’t have to be on a scaffold, I’m in a park and there’s no traffic to watch out for.� The concept began with the presentation to council, to which Tetrault contributed a slide show of murals, along with discussion that examined ways in which the city’s aesthetic could be improved by other features, such as stonework and living walls,

as well as treatments for hillside retaining walls. “The city asked me to design a mural specifically for this building,� Tetrault said, explaining that while it was originally planned for the south wall, at the entrance of Semiahmoo Arts’ White Rock pied-aterre, it became evident that the eastern wall would provide more logical exposure. “The idea was to make a visual statement that there is an arts-related centre here, and really draw attention to the building,� he said. It seemed natural that the Leisure Services wall at right angles to the first mural would be the location for the second, collaborative work, creating a mural corner at the pathway leading to the Semiahmoo Arts offices. “One of the concepts is that this area could become an outdoor studio, with the

addition of a deck area.� Tetrault’s mural, which incorporates his signature style – influenced by such schools as German Expressionism and Mexican social-activist murals – brings in vivid symbolic elements such as a painters’ palette and tubes of colours, the seashore, a mask-like face representing the dramatic arts and exotic musical instruments representing a multi-cultural fabric of creativity, and will also include a text drawn from the writings of Kurt Vonnegut. The second mural, co-designed by the participants, provides a complementary piece that seems to blend seamlessly with the first. “It has an element of abstraction but still with representative elements,� Tetrault said, adding he welcomed being able to work with painters of diverse backgrounds recruited through Semiahmoo Arts.

Edinburgh-born Wilson has had wide experience painting outdoors around the world, while for Lipschultz, an Emily Carr graduate, the project has been an opportunity to expand on painting skills. Like Lipschultz, Donen lives nearby, and also says the project has expanded her artistic experience from her usual focus on abstract expressionism. “It’s been a really good experience – my biggest painting to this point has been 4½ by five feet,â€? said the former University of Fraser Valley student. “Designing the mural was a matter of thinking about representing Semiahmoo Arts and Richard Tetrault also reflecting the artist environment around us – we’ve added in dancing figures but also incorporated the environment with the forest and the beach,â€? she said. “We also chose a natural palette of colours – we wanted to blend in with the surroundings.â€? “Everybody has their own sense of stylization and design, and everybody’s really into it – it’s a great deal of fun,â€? Tetrault said.

Fundraiser set for June 6

Coffee house turns 40 Alex Browne Arts Reporter

An upcoming fundraiser for Crescent Moon Coffee House might just be its 40th anniversary, too. Co-organizer Harriet Quint said that, like many enduring traditions, record keeping was not top-ofmind when it started. But the best guess is that the informal, lowpressure, jam and sit-in opportunity– which can take credit for launching the careers of many Semiahmoo Peninsula professional and amateur music makers – started around 1974. “We’ve been building a community through music since then,” said Quint. Just how strong the tradition is to this day – and how valued – can be judged from the lineup scheduled to play the June 6, 7 p.m. event at the Royal Canadian Legion Crescent Branch 240, (2643 128 St.).

Coffee house veterans trace its origins to a Local Improvement Project initiative administered by the Semiahmoo House Society in the early ’70s and

venues have included Camp Alexandra and the White Rock Elks Club. The coffee house itself is in its fourth season at the City of Surrey’s Kwomais Point Park this year, but the same venue, as Camp Kwomais, was its home for many years before that. The second annual fundraiser will enable the low-cost venture to continue well into 2015, Schultz said. “The funds from the first one kept us going for a year – it’s been extremely effective in balancing the budget on this,” he added. The benefits of the coffee house to budding performers

in need of encouragement – or more experienced musicians who glean fresh inspiration from unanticipated collaboration – have proven beyond value over the years, Quint and Schultz said. “There are hundreds of people in the coffee house network, even if they don’t know it,” said Quint. “It’s one of those ‘best kept secrets,’”said Schultz. “We don’t advertise it, but it’s a constant. It’s musically exciting to play with people you know and people you don’t know.” Tickets are $10 (in advance at the legion or Tapestry Music) or $15 at the door.

Offering help through art Evan Seal Black Press

Since he was a child, Graham Force has been fascinated by planes. Growing up in Abbotsford near the airport, Force, who now lives in Surrey, often found himself sketching the various aircraft that he saw in and around the airfield, often captivated by the sounds and power of the military jets he saw during trips to the annual airshow – especially the Blue Angels and the Snowbirds. It was after reading an article recently about the many wounded and disabled soldiers who have come home from various conflicts around the globe, including Afghanistan, that Force decided to try to offer his talent as an artist to give back. “There are roughly 1,800 soldiers who are dealing with some sort of conflict-related injury or mental health issue,” said Force,

'Smart floors' purify homes New technology helps get rid of odours and bacteria Hardwood floors rarely come to mind when searching for ways to purify a home. Homeowners, of course, know to mop up dirt and spills to keep the area clean. But what if the material you install could actually improve air quality? Lauzon’s Pure Genius “smart hardwood floor,” sold by Surfside Flooring in Surrey, is said to make indoor air up to 85 per cent cleaner by degrading toxic contaminants. “It’s like having three trees in your home, due to its air-purifying effect,” reads the product description. It also minimizes lingering odours, such as cigarette smoke and pet urine, and decomposes bacteria, viruses and mold. “It’s a remarkable hardwood floor,” says Dora Belyk, co-owner of Surfside Flooring, who is excited about the positive environmental benefits of the product. “It’s light activated with natural or artificial light.” The technology employed is quite complex. To summarize, the hardwood floor uses patented photocatalytic technology, the result of research into nanotechnology. When toxic molecules come into contact with the active “nanoparticles,” they are naturally broken down and converted into harmless water and carbon dioxide molecules. And, just as importantly, Belyk says Pure Genius is a great looking addition to any home. It’s offered in two models: Organik FSC-certified hard maple and Authentik red oak. The result is a sleek looking floor.

Gardeners mix annuals with perennials for flawless plots Hanging baskets and “container gardens” are options for green-thumbs without a lot of space Deciding between annuals and perennials can be tricky business. Is it best to plant flowers that will come back year after year, or opt for pops of stunning colour that only bloom once? Jason Vander Mey, manager of West Coast Gardens in Surrey, says green-thumbs can have the best of both worlds – if they have a plan in mind. “Perennials have the advantage that they will come back, and also provide splashes of colours,” he tells Peace Arch News. “And annuals are vibrant in colour and last until the fall.” Gardeners often find mixing the two varieties yields the best results. When different species of perennials are combined, year-long flowers can be produced and adding annuals can bring added beauty during the warmer months. For gardeners without a lot of green space, Vander Mey suggests “container gardening” by incorporating both annuals and perennials into a large pot. “It can make an exquisite addition to a front entry way or patio,” he says. Currently, West Coast Garden’s most popular annual is the begonia, particularly in tangerine and yellow. For perennials, hostas, a shade-tolerant shrub

with dainty flowers, are sought after. Hanging baskets are a popular gardening choice, whether they hang from a home’s front porch or on an apartment balcony. To keep baskets lasting longer, Shawneen Esson, nursery manager of Art Knapp, suggests using soil that contains a water retainer. “If you miss a beat on watering, especially hanging baskets, there is a hard time recovering. The key is – water, water, water,” she says, adding a small home patio water systems is easy to hook up and worth the $20 to $30 investment. Another way to make hanging baskets last longer is to mix hearty perennials with annuals. Esson suggests using heuchera, a colorful perennial, to provide vibrancy and texture, as well as long-lasting results. “It comes in a variety of colours – a lot of fluorescent greens and deep burgundies,” she says. The end of May is the ideal to start planting annuals, suggests Cam Martin, manager of Potter’s in South Surrey. “Begonias are great to plant. Bright yellow and red are always popular, as well as white,” he says, noting these flowers do well in the shade. Martin also recommends geraniums, which come in a variety of colours including red and salmon. For perennials, he says lavender is a good choice for gardens in South Surrey. “The fragrance and the foliage is great,” he adds. In addition to the traditional purple flowers, lavender is also available in white and pink varieties that still carry the pleasant scent.

New home technology Remember The Jetsons? Many gadgets from the early ‘60s cartoon have become real-life technology in the past few years. The Internet is incorporated into many devices so users can personalize their experience in ways that weren’t possible only a few short years ago. And, while everyday equipment for the home is increasingly high tech and customizable, it’s also becoming more user-friendly. Bryan Ayres, owner of Ayreborn Audio in Surrey, keeps on top of the latest trends to introduce new products to his customers. Here are a few of his most popular items: Unlimited music in any room. With just one smartphone, tablet or computer app, the wireless Sonos system can play different music in every room of your home. The music selection is endless because it’s streamed online and brought into the house via “hifi” wireless speakers. “I’ve sold these systems to all ages, up to 90 years old. It’s extremely simple for anyone to use,” says Ayres. Rooms, such as the office and master bedroom, can be grouped together so the same music plays in all areas. Perfect for the summer, speakers can also be brought onto the patio. Dim the lights with a smartphone. If any new technology brings about images of The Jetsons, it’s Control4 – a whole-home automation system. By integrating household features, such as lighting, music and climate control, into one system, users can customize their home from a cellphone or tablet. With the touch of a button, lights can be dimmed for a romantic dinner

ENDURING POWER OF ATTORNEY (EPOA) An EPOA allows your attorney (the person appointed by you) to manage your legal and financial affairs in your place. This is particularly useful if you become incapacitated due to physical or mental health problems, or in the event of your absence.

REPRESENTATION AGREEMENT (RA) An RA is a legal planning document that allows you to give someone you trust the legal authority to help you make decisions or to represent you and make decisions for you if you are incapable of making decisions independently. An RA can cover your personal and/or health care decisions which can include end of life decision making. It can also cover management of your routine financial affairs.

ADVANCE DIRECTIVE (AD) An AD is a fairly new legal document which came into effect September 1, 2011. An AD is a written instruction that gives or refuses consent to health care treatment at a time when the health care is needed and the adult who makes it is not capable of giving or refusing consent or treatment.

WILL

Providing our community with quality legal services since 1981. • Corporate & Commercial • Real Estate & Mortgages • Estate Planning & Administration

Personal planning is important to ensure that your wishes will be respected should a time come when you need assistance or must rely on someone else to make decisions for you. Most of us hope and expect to be able to make our own decisions throughout our lives, choosing where we live, managing our money, and making decisions about our health care. Yet, life is unpredictable. A sudden accident or illness can change everything. Sometimes, our ability to make decisions changes slowly, especially as we age. The best that we can do for ourselves and for those who care about us is to plan ahead. In BC, adults have a choice of legal personal planning options you can use to ensure your wishes are known and can be followed when you have passed away and while you are still alive, if the need arises. I would like to highlight 4 personal planning options:

Kent Sanderson, Kim Karras, Kirsten Wharton, Tamara Huculak

Wills, Trusts & Estate Planning Power of Attorney & Representation Agreements Committeeship Applications Probate & Estate Administration Wills Variation Act & Estate Claims ICBC Claims – Personal Injury Foreclosure, Debt Collection, Litigation Wrongful Dismissal

#309-1688-152 St., Ocean Pointe, Surrey • 604-542-5344

A properly executed will creates certainty of your intentions for the distribution of assets and personal effects and the guardianship of minor children. It designates who is responsible for carrying out your wishes (an executor) and covers other vital details such as funeral arrangements. Without a will there is doubt, anxiety, stress, hurt feelings, and delays in administering the estate. The kindest thing you can do for your loved ones is to leave your affairs in good order. I invite you to start the process by contacting my office and scheduling an appointment in which your options will be fully explained.

A charming country lifestyle at Village Green By Kerry Vital

Relaxation and a neighbourly feel are the words of the day at Village Green, a quiet enclave in Maple Ridge that’s been appealing to buyers of all demographics. “It’s like a little English village,” says sales manager Jeanie Fox. “It’s a really nice community.” The two-level townhomes are built in a West Coast Architecture style, and are surrounded by plenty of green

space. Each home has a fenced yard, making them perfect for families and those looking to have a bit of green space of their own. “It’s a beautiful setting,” says Fox. “You can cook dinner in your kitchen while watching your kids play in the yard right outside.” Inside, the spacious three-bedroom floorplans, ranging from 1,246 to 1,382 square feet, include laminate hardwood flooring, nine-foot ceilings on the main floor and quartz countertops

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

and stainless-steel appliances in the kitchen. The master ensuite bathroom is spa-inspired, with a full frameless glass shower and oversized shower head. “These are very good finishings,” Fox says. “You also get a great value for your money. It’s just incredible.” Phase one is currently selling, and the second phase will be released soon. When complete, the nine-acre site will hold 105 townhomes. Homeowners have already started moving in, with more to come in the fall. “We wanted to offer homes that felt like a single-family residence, at townhome affordability, and in fact the majority of our buyers have claimed this as one of their top reasons for purchasing there,” says Fox. Homes at Village Green start at $302,900. For more information, visit www.villagegreenlife.ca, call 604-476-2292 or visit the presentation centre at 12161 237th Street, Maple Ridge, open 12 to 5 p.m. every day except Fridays.

Camden at The Falls, the first release of single-family homes built around The Falls golf course in Chilliwack, will have beautiful views from every home, including the rolling greens of the golf course, right, and over the surrounding area, below.

Dream homes at Camden at The Falls By Kerry Vital

Aquilini Development is bringing their master-planned community building expertise to Chilliwack with The Falls, an envisioned community of over 500 homes, set to be built around The Falls Golf Club. Camden, their first release of just 47 singlefamily homes, offers a little piece of paradise for as low as $389,900. “You walk out your door and you’re on the golf course, with rolling greens and panoramic views,” says Macartney Greenfield, project manager for Rennie Marketing Systems. “There aren’t a lot of projects that

can offer that resort-style living.” The response has been overwhelming, Greenfield says. Floorplans range from 1,336 to 3,176 square feet, and each comes with a large double-car garage with tons of room for storage. The master-on-main floorplans have been particularly popular, Greenfield says. There is also a rancher floorplan available. Buyers will have a vast array of choices when it comes to customizing their new home, including six different home types and elevation styles, eight exterior colour schemes and two interior colour schemes. There are also several interior and exterior upgrade options available. The location is one of the biggest draws for Camden at The Falls. “People are amazed by how beautiful it is here,” Greenfield says. “It’s nestled into the side of the mountain with breathtaking views in every direction.” To take advantage of the views, the homes have spacious covered decks and oversized

windows. Nine-foot ceilings in the main living areas add to the airy feeling. Laminate wood flooring is included throughout the main living areas, with porcelain tile in the bathrooms and low-pile carpeting in the bedrooms. A gas fireplace in the living room is perfect for cozying up to in the colder weather, and a rough-in for a wet bar is included in some homes, making entertaining easy. The kitchen is gourmet and refined, with stainless-steel appliances, shaker-style wood stained or flat-panel cabinetry and laminate countertops. A convenient kitchen island creates extra space, with pendant lighting above illuminating your tasks. A full-height walk-in pantry with built-in shelving is another convenient feature that demonstrates Aquilini’s commitment to their homeowners. The master ensuite features a tempered glass shower enclosure and separate tub, with double sinks for plenty of his-and-hers space. Every home comes with a two-year

membership to The Falls Golf Club, with additional discounts for the pro shop, restaurant and ongoing green fees. It truly is a golfer’s dream come true! The Aquilini name has held a lot of weight for buyers at Camden at The Falls. “Aquilini has strong local roots and is very committed to this community,” says Greenfield. “You have the confidence factor of buying from a builder known for large developments and master-planned communities.” Homeowners won’t have to venture very far from their home to find anything they need. “This is a very central community,” says Greenfield. “There’s a great school at the bottom of the hill, and you’re less than 10 minutes from Chilliwack.” Trails, lakes and other outdoor recreation opportunities are also plentiful here. For more information, visit www. livethefalls.com, call 604-794-5722 or stop by the presentation centre at 8361 Nixon Road, Chilliwack, open 12 to 5 p.m. daily except Tuesdays, or by appointment.

White Rock catcher’s three-home-run weekend leads team to three wins

Yeager’s blasts boost Tritons Nick Greenizan

J

Sports Reporter

ust like the weather, the White Rock Tritons are heating up. The BC Premier Baseball League team – which started the season slowly but is 7-3 in the last 10 games – added three more wins to the ledger last weekend at South Surrey Athletic Park, sweeping the Coquitlam Reds in a doubleheader Sunday while also earning a twogame split with the Parksville Royals. On Sunday against the Reds, the Tritons opened with a 3-2 win in which pitcher Keaton Edwards had perhaps his best outing of the season. The Elgin Park Secondary student pitched six-and-a-third innings, striking out seven while allowing just two hits and three walks. Eric Broatch got the final two outs in relief, striking out one to earn the save. Offensively, catcher Dylan Yeager was the star, going 2-for-3 with a home run and three runs-batted-in. The Grade 12 Earl Marriott Secondary student added another round-tripper in the second game of the day – and had another Saturday – and now, along with teammate Tom Melenchuk, leads the league in home runs with three. “In all my years in this league, I don’t know that I’ve ever seen that, one guy hitting home runs in three straight games in one weekend,” said Tritons coach Russ Smithson. “Dylan was just crushing the ball. Tom was, too. It was great, and it gets everybody pretty pumped up.” The home-run barrage has also spurred a bit of a friendly competition between the two sluggers, Smithson added. “Oh yeah, there definitely is now,” he laughed. Centre-fielder and leadoff hitter Aaron Wiegert also had a good game at the dish, going 2-for-2 with two runs scored and a stolen base. In the second game Sunday, the Tritons waited until their last at-bats to win the game. With the two teams tied 2-2 in the bottom of the sixth and final inning, Melenchuk blasted a three-run home run to put the home team up by three heading into the final inning. White Rock’s other two runs also came via the long ball, when Yeager hit a tworun homer in the second inning. Scott Doucet went the distance on the mound for the victors, striking out eight i see page 54

Marriott, Semi and Tweeedsmuir qualify

Teams aim for provincial rugby title Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Boaz Joseph photo

White Rock Tritons catcher Dylan Yeager hit home runs in three straight games last weekend.

Miracle-Ear

Three South Surrey/Cloverdale senior boys rugby teams will be vying for a provincial title later this month in Abbotsford. The Earl Marriott Mariners, Semiahmoo Totems and Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers have all punched their ticket to the provincial tournament – which begins May 24 at sites across B.C. and wraps up May 28-31 in Abbotsford. But before teams can lock horns at BC High School Senior Boys AAA Rugby Championships, the Earl Marriott Mariners have another bit of important business to attend to: successfully defending their Fraser Valley AAA Elite-division banner for a sixth consecutive year. On Wednesday night – after Peace Arch News’ press deadline – the Mariners were set to face off against the Robert Bateman Timberwolves at Abbotsford’s Rotary Stadium, with the Valley title up for grabs. The two squads are no strangers to each other, having played twice already this season. EMS edged the T-Wolves in a preseason contest, and two weeks ago, Bateman earned a measure of revenge by besting their South Surrey rivals 24-12 in the final game of the regular season. “This is it. The guys don’t want just a little bit of revenge – they want to exact a bunch,” said Marriott head coach Adam Roberts. The last time the two sides faced off in a Fraser Valley title game was 2012, when EMS edged the Abby squad 7-0. i see page 56

Become a tree watering partner! Tritons reel off Get involved four wins in row i from page 53 while giving up just two runs in seven innings of work. The veteran pitcher now has 24 strikeouts in 24 innings this season, while sporting a 2-1 win-loss record. As opposed to Sunday’s games, which were relatively close on the scoreboard, neither game Saturday against Parksville was as closely contested. In the opening, the visiting Royals whacked the Tritons 8-0, scoring all eight runs in the back half of the game. The Royals scored two in the fourth, and three each in the fifth and six innings to run away with the win. White Rock managed just three hits – all singles – off Royals’ pitcher Owen Kelly, who struck out six and walked just one. Tritons’ pitcher Barry Caine was tagged with the loss. He pitched four-and-two-thirds innings before being relieved by Anthony Aiello, who got the final seven outs. The tables were turned in the second game of the day, as White Rock’s offence came alive, with 13 hits in a 9-0 win. Melenchuk went 4-for-4 with a home run, two doubles and four RBI, and James Pavelick also went

4-for-4, with three runs scored. The red-hot Yeager had just one hit, but it was a big one – his first of three homers on the weekend. Patrick van den Brink was the pitcher of record for White Rock, earning the win after six-and-one-thirds inning of work, striking out three along the way. The team earned a fourth straight victory Tuesday night at Abbotsford’s Delair Park, beating the hometown Cardinals 3-1. As was the case on the weekend, the team got another stellar performance from a starting pitcher – this time, Zach Campagne, who went six innings, striking out two while scattering five hits, all of which were singles. “That’s been the key for us lately – getting great games from our pitchers. We’ve got guys throwing complete games, most guys going at least into the six inning. It’s been great,” Swanson said. Aiello pitched the final inning, striking out two of the three batters he faced. Yeager had another strong day at the plate, as did second baseman Jason Hill. Both had a double and an RBI, while Yeager also stole a base.

Douglas named first-team all-star

N OT I C E O F I NT E NT I O N

COMMUNITY CHARTER, S.B.C. 2003, CHAPTER 26 NOTICE OF INTENTION TO DISPOSE OF CITY PROPERTY SECTIONS 26 AND 94

Former White Rock Tritons catcher Evan Douglas has been honoured by the Canadian College Baseball Conference. The second-year catcher for Kamloops’ Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack was named to the CCBC’s first all-star team May 9; he was one of six TRU players to make the list. Douglas – who this season took over the starting catching duties from another firstteam all-star, David Hole – led the league in runs-batted-in, with 20, and was also sixth in the CCBC in batting average, at .313. The awards were handed out last weekend at the league championships in Lethbridge last weekend. Thompson Rivers lost in the championship game, 5-1 to the Prairie Baseball Academy. Douglas went 3-for-4 in the loss. The catcher is one of three former Tritons on the TRU squad, along with Tony Tabor and Tanner Sandstrom.

Pursuant to Sections 26 and 94 of the Community Charter, S.B.C. 2003, Chapter 26, as amended, the City of Surrey hereby gives notice of the intention to dispose by way of lease the following City premises:

Totems qualify with Monday win i from page 53 “We know each other well, and it’s a really awesome rivalry,” Roberts said. To make it into Wednesday’s final, the Mariners had to defeat Tweedsmuir last week, winning 11-0 in a rainy game Roberts described as “a full-on mudfest.” With their top-four finishes at Fraser Valleys, both EMS and Tweedsmuir earned a provincial berth, while Semiahmoo – which plays in the AAA Tier 1 division – also secured a spot by virtue of an undefeated season. Since their Sandcastle Cup victory over Earl Marriott – which returned the Sandcastle Cup to Semi for the first time since 2009 – the Totems have reeled off two playoff wins. On May 1, they beat South Delta 48-0, and on Monday knocked off the Gleneagle Talons 49-14 to secure their provincial spot. “We’re just playing so well as a team,” said coach Tom Wilson. “We have guys playing out of position – like Matt Gallagher

I’ve never had a team quite like this one before.” Though they’ve yet to lose a game prior to last month’s Sandcastle Cup, Wilson said that

win over EMS has to this point been the most important game of the year. “That was the biggest turning point,” the coach said. “That’s the game that made the guys realize that they can beat anybody,”

Behind every work zone cone is a worker in a vulnerable position. Each cone stands for someone’s father, mother, son, or daughter.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK!

Safety Tip: As high school seniors prepare for graduation, it’s important that parents make sure their teens are also planning for a side ride home after all of their festivities. Grads often treat themselves to limousine rides but make sure they have a plan if they’ll be going to any other celebrations.

It’s big, it’s heavy, but it’s light on fuel The all-new, third generation 2014 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited AWD tips the scale at 2,200 kg (4,850 lbs.) It’s not a svelte vehicle. Inside, this Highlander can carry up to seven passengers. It’s not a cramped vehicle. And behind the third row of seats, there’s a cargo capacity of 385L. It’s an accommodating vehicle. So when I knew that I’d be logging more than 1,000 kilometres in a week, perhaps you’d think I’m a little crazy to want to take this (relatively) heavy and large SUV along for the ride. Normally, I would think that too. But there’s a word in its name that made me want to take this beauty of a beast for the long haul: Hybrid. As I entered the Flaxen (aka beige) adorned cabin, I reached for the “Eco Mode” button underneath the redesigned centre stack. I gave that a push. The Eco mode is a feature that lessens the throttle response in an effort to help save fuel. You can still do all your normal daily driving duties, it just helps you keep money where it should be: in your wallet. And keeps the fuel where it should be: in the tank. Granted, in Eco Mode, it doesn’t give you the peppy acceleration you might like. Then again, if prompt acceleration is what you’re after, skip the Eco Mode and that’s exactly what you’ll get. Whether I was driving in the city or on the highway, the Highlander has a smoothness to it that makes me love being behind the wheel. It cruises effortlessly atop the pavement and makes the driver and passengers feel at ease. Especially when you know you’re going the distance. I even had one passenger say to me, “If we were in here any longer, I could’ve fallen asleep! It’s so comfortable.” Good thing they weren’t driving. The suspension is composed of front Macpherson struts and a rear double wishbone type, trailing arms set up. Toyota gets an A+ for ride comfort. And it’s arguably one of the best in its class. Aiding in establishing a serene setting is a host

of creature comforts like heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, second row captain’s chairs, easy access to the third row, keyless entry and navigation. There is also an 8-inch touchscreen and much more. We’ve already established its size, and while it fits up to seven, it doesn’t feel that big to drive. Sure, you need to make sure you watch its width but manoeuvring it around in parking lots isn’t a chore at all. Thanks to its rack and pinion-type, electric power steering, you can move around graciously. Though this is not my first hybrid SUV that I’ve tested, I am always excited to see how well these machines perform in regards to fuel economy. After all, there’s a 3.5L, V6 engine under the hood, which is then matched with an electric motor, a Sealed Nickel-Metal Hydride battery and an Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT). The result is a net 280 horsepower. There’s also a 1,587 kg (3,500 lbs.) towing capacity. Looking at the estimated fuel results, it’s rated at 6.8L/100km in the city and 7.2L/100km on the highway. Keep in mind the aforementioned stats about its size and weight and those numbers are really impressive. My real world numbers? A combined average of 8.9L/100km. Not bad. Not bad at all. Most of my driving was done on the highway so the hybrid system doesn’t have a chance to run off electricity alone at those speeds. Oh, and it’s all-wheel drive. Sun or snow, this SUV is ready for it all. With fuel prices hovering around the $1.50/litre mark, the more kilometres I can get out of a tank, the better. And the Highlander Hybrid made me a very happy gal. The conclusion: The 2014 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited AWD is competent, potent and a fabulous sport utility vehicle even in Eco Mode where the fun is a little bit restricted. The MSRP for the 2014 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited AWD is $52,695. Visit www.toyota.ca for more information. alexandra.straub@ drivewaybc.ca

The Chevrolet Impala is a handsome beast

Details This is a very handsome car. I can clearly remember seeing it for the first time over a year ago at the New York Auto Show and it was the standout of that event. This new design is striking on several levels.

‘‘

This new Impala... cruises with ease, has more than enough room for five full size adults and the interior is quiet and refined.

’’

Zack Spencer

The front design has the signature Chevrolet split grille that was so warmly received on this car that they borrowed it and graphed it into the smaller Malibu. The side has sweeping front windshield and rear window with a high rear deck that provides a sleek silhouette. Prices start at just over $28,000 and the 2LT is fitted with the V6 engine and starts at almost $33,000.

Inside It looks and works well, showcasing what GM is doing right. The mixture of materials, shapes and colours really makes this cabin pop. The seats can be covered in cloth on the base car; faux suede seats or leather on the top models. The dash is covered in soft touch materials; I especially

like the textured aluminum look around the window buttons and cup holders. The MyLink infotainment system is easy to use and the graphics look good and the screen pops up for access to the hidden storage area with a USB jack. Standard features include tilt and telescopic steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity, USB, 8-way power driver’s seat and more. But the back seat might be the best part of this car. The legroom has limo-like dimensions and the space side-to-side and headroom is ample. The trunk is also huge with a fold down rear seat, providing more space than many small SUVs.

Drive The Impala is now offered with a 4-cylinder or V6. The base engine is a 2.5L with direct injection unit and 195hp. My test Impala didn’t have this engine but I have used this new engine in the Malibu and I was very impressed with it then, one of the best new engines I have used. The V6 engine is a 3.6L direct injection unit with a potent 305hp. Both are matched to a 6-speed automatic that can be shifted manually but the shifter is on top of the knob, not the best place. The big car platform and independent suspension makes for a sure-footed ride with almost luxury car feel. The road feel is there, but never intrusive. This big sedan can actually handle rather well. Not the choice for a backcountry road excursions but stable and secure feeling. Verdict Consumer Reports recently rated this one of the best cars they had ever tested, right behind the Tesla Model S and BMW 135i. This new Impala does everything a big car buyer is looking for: It cruises with ease, has more than enough room for five full-size adults and the interior is quiet and refined. I would suggest that buyers of more expensive Luxury brands like Buick or Lexus give this car a shot. It has all the same comfort but with a lower price point. One main criticism of this new car is the lack of an all-wheel drive system. The Buick LaCrosse does off it as does the Cadillac, the major difference

between these products. Mid-size sedan buyers should also have a look at what the Impala offers for just slightly more money. Hopefully this new Impala will not be relegated to fleet sales and rental lots. zack.spencer@ drivewaybc.ca

Canadians love smaller vehicles. The best selling passenger vehicles are compact cars and compact SUVs. As much as we like to keep things sensible, there is always a place for larger vehicles. Full-size sedans are not big sellers but some buyers prefer them for long distance cruising and the road-hugging stance that a sedan provides. There are some very good choices out there and the latest is this all-new Chevrolet Impala. The previous Impala was a favourite for company sales fleets or rental car companies, with a minority of buyers choosing them for personal transportation.

The new Chevrolet Impala is rated highly by Consumer Reports. Follow us at:

Luxury and hi-tech systems abound in the 4x4s that show up in the local media test fleets. When I stepped out of one of the more loaded examples the other day I got to thinking about yesteryear. Some might refer to them as the good old days – judge for yourself. I remember – not that long ago – four wheeling in a truck when the standard transmission shifter was so loose, you didn’t know you were in gear or neutral. Anti-lock brakes were when you lost your master cylinder to a stick, while (independently minded) power steering kicked in when you hit the corner of a rock so hard it ripped the steering wheel out of your hand and if you weren’t carful your thumb as well. Traction control came in the shape of new tires. Automatic four-wheel-drive was achieved by asking your passenger to step out and lock the front hubs. The parking brake was a log shoved under the rear tire. Soft suspension meant your shocks were blown. The vehicles of today have the capabilities of descending steep hills without even putting your foot on the brake and you could disconnect your sway bar end links to allow for more articulation. Ability to stop on a hill without rolling back is nice. Comfortable seats are really an improvement, especially on long trips. Although we can’t relive the past, it’s important to remember technology is there to help us. There is no replacement for common sense, so don’t let your truck drive you, drive it and be safe. If you have any fun and not-so-fun truck tales to share, please drop me a line. ian.harwood@ drivewaybc.ca

All agree that Judith was a force of nature, never pausing in her pursuit of education and experience believing “Art is Life is Art”. A long time White Rock resident, Judith was an accomplished artist, writer, composer, musician and artisan. She was an unforgettable role model for her daughters Julia, Claire and Anne, her six grandchildren and a loving wife to Douglas Dodington (1932-1999). A retrospective art exhibit and memorial showcasing Judith’s many decades of work will take place on June 29th from 2-5pm at the new South Surrey Art Centre, 14601 20th Avenue, Surrey, BC.
