Town centre plan revisited

Jump start

BOAZ JOSEPH / BLACK PRESS

A saddle bronc rider is surprised right at the gate during competition at the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair on May 17.

By Jennifer Lang The document that guides future development in the heart of Cloverdale is being updated, and residents who want to find out more are invited to the Surrey Museum tonight (May 22). The City of Surrey is starting the process of updating the Land Use Plan and Urban Design Concept for the Cloverdale Town Centre. The city’s planning team will be on hand, explaining how the planning process will work, and seeking feedback from residents. “At this point, we’re just looking for input from people,” said Don Luymas, manager of community planning for the City of Surrey. “What do they like about the Cloverdale Town Centre, and what would they like to see changed?” The original Cloverdale Town Centre plan was done in 1990, before the completion of the new Surrey Museum and the Cloverdale West Village plan to redevelop the old Cloverdale Mall site. “The older plan had some areas desig-

nated for parks and plazas that don’t really make sense anymore,” he added. The area under discussion covers downtown Cloverdale between 60 Ave. and 54 Ave., from 172 Street to 180 Street, and undeveloped land southeast to 184 St. that includes Kwantlen Polytechnic University and the Bourassa Farm property. The city is updating all its town centre plans, starting with Fleetwood, Newton and Cloverdale, where relatively minor tweaks are needed. “I don’t foresee dramatic change,” he said, adding the next step is to consult over the summer with stakeholders such as the Cloverdale BIA, the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce, Surrey Museum and Kwantlen Polytechnic University before coming back to the public in the fall. The meeting runs from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Welcoming remarks are at 7 p.m. The Surrey Museum is located at 17710 56A Avenue. For more information, contact Erin Schultz, community planning, at 604598-5776 or email ejschultz@surrey.ca.

It’s the ultimate road trip By Jennifer Lang It’s the road trip of a lifetime for a couple of freewheeling adventurers who are riding on the eek ultimate set of wheels – a sleek stretch limousine. aBut the 1989 white Caor dillac that’s been home for the past two years to Lucas as Cárdenas and Florencia Bra-tovich is hardly the picture of luxury. Outside, the onceshining white paint job is crackled and peeling – a casualty of the road, an-dof four difficult days on n the world’s largest salt flat, Salar de Uyuni, in Bolivia.

And on the inside, instead of plush leather seats and plenty of leg room, there’s a cramped-looking bed next n to a tidy stainless steel sink, one-burner on stove and small cupboards for storage. cu But the road-battled, m muddy machine is home for the pair, who landed in Surrey just in time to join the parade and the classic car show at the Cloverdale Rodeo and Coun Country Fair, May 16 to 19. Since setting out from PataSin goni gonia, in their native Argentina, on Feb. 23, 2012, Cárdenas and Bratovich have visited 17 countries, sightseeing along the way, and amassing a collection of

tiny souvenirs, from dashboard hula girls to eraser-sized models of Aztec pyramids. They plan to arrive at their final destination – Alaska – when they get there. “We are travelling without watches and without cell phones,” Cárdenas told The Reporter. They are cataloguing their exploits on a website – America sin Limites (America without limits) – and on Facebook, where friends old and new are following their adventures, written in Spanish. The pair doesn’t have a set itinerary, preferring to go where the road See FACES / Page 2

takes them – visiting with new friends along the way. A Cloverdale resident who heard about their adventures on Argentine radio contacted Cardenas, 35, and Bratovich, 27, inviting them to stay with his family. “Five months later, we’re here,” Cardenas said. Another B.C. family who met them during their three-month stay in Costa Rica has invited them home to Squamish. “They’ve been following us on Facebook all this time. They invited us to stay,” Cárdenas said, remarking on what a small world it is when it comes to travel. They enjoy getting off the beaten path, preferring the small towns. “We never know” where they will be going next, said Bratovich: They take out the map and choose their next destination. The pair has driven their 23-foot-long limousine nearly the entire way across the Ameri-

cas by land, a journey to Cloverdale of an estimated 48,000 kms or 30,000 miles. The only exception was getting to Panama from Columbia, a distance of about 100 km of jungle and lawlessness. The limo had to be

shipped by boat. Cárdenas and Bratovich flew. Despite the myriad of countries in southern and central America on their itinerary, “We’ve never had any problem with violence or anything,” Cárdenas said. Ironically, after all this

time and distance, they recently got robbed in Seattle, WA. A scammer talked them out of $25 for a parking pass only to run off with their money. By necessity and budget, they’ve become adept at auto repair. The lengthy limo’s engine had to be replaced in Los Angeles – a great place to find rare auto parts, it turned out. They found a used engine on Craiglist. “We replaced it and it’s running fine,” Cárdenas said. The unusual sight of a white Cadillac limousine draws admirers and the curious. The pair is used to drawing a crowd of spectators. Every morning we wake up to faces,” Cárdenas said. They make travel money by selling copies of their self-published book outlining their adventures, and framed photos they’ve taken along the way.

Youth skate park opens

Gone but not forgotten JENNIFER LANG PHOTO

The sun came out, as if on cue, as family, friends and colleagues turned out May 15 for the dedication of two City of Surrey tributes to Bill Reid (pictured above is Marion Reid, centre, and their daughters). The former MLA, cabinet minister and executive director of the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce passed away last year at 78. Mayor Dianne Watts said the renaming of the Cloverdale Amphitheatre and 62 Avenue as Bill Reid Way recognize Reid’s 50 years of public service to Surrey. A statue is also being commissioned.

By Jennifer Lang Skaters, the wait is over. The brandnew Cloverdale skate park opened over the weekend, in time for the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair. Ted Uhrich, manager of parks planning, research and design with the City of Surrey confirmed the state-of-the art, partially covered skate park is now open for public use. Officially called the Cloverdale Youth Park, the facility is a replacement for the aging Cloverdale Youth Park at 17848 64 Avenue. The new park is located at the northeast corner of Bill Reid Way (62 Ave.) and 176 Street, adjacent to the Cloverdale Recreation Centre. The grand opening is still to be announced. The announcement will be good news for skaters like Langley’s Tyson Brunton and Sam Hampton, who were hoping to try out the new park last

Cloverdale’s ceilidh – a night of Celtic fun True, northern Celtic pride was on display at the 17th annual celebration, with ages nine to 90 whooping it up

T

he Tartan Pride Highland Dance Team and The Joan Murray School of Highland Dance played host to a sellout crowd May 10 at the Cloverdale Catholic Parish Hall when they staged their 17th annual Ceilidh, or Celtic Night. The night began with dance performances by members of the Joan Murray School – very similar to a traditional

dance school recital. An hour later the show had developed into a near-professional show featuring the internationally-known Tartan Pride Highland Dance Team performing their signature numbers with the Vancouver Police Pipe Band. Then the stage was turned over to western Canada’s best known Celtic stage band,

Blackthorn, and the next three hours were a blend of professional music, dance, and games for an audience of all ages. The Vancouver Police Pipe Band took time off from rehearsing for their upcoming trip to London, where they will take part in the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, to give Cloverdale a preview of some of

The Vancouver Police Pipe Band took time off from rehearsing for their upcoming trip to London to give Cloverdale a musical preview. the music they will be performing at the timehonoured ceremony,

plus of course, traditional and even local pipe music. One of the biggest crowd responses of the night was reserved for “Nelson Mandela’s Welcome To the City Of Glasgow,� a unique, African-style number danced by Tartan Pride to the VPPB’s unique piping and drumming display. As always, Blackthorn had the audience

dancing and singing to their blend of Celtic and Canadian music of all types. Here we mean Scottish, French, Hungarian, Quebecois, Nova Scotian, Irish, Newfoundland, and Prairie.  In between the array of dance and music numbers were games that had children of all ages from nine to 90 whooping it up. Saturday night was one jam-packed with fun

and laughter, music and dance. Said Joan Murray, hostess and originator of the event, “Every one of our Celtic Nights has been a lot of fun, but I think they get better every year. This one was the best ever. Can you imagine what next year’s will be like?�

Surgeries delayed, not ‘cut’ To the editor; Some unfortunate misconceptions have been created about the reduction of surgeries across Fraser Health and I would like to clarify these inaccuracies. (Re: “Fraser Health cuts surgeries to make budget,� May 8). 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 fastest growing 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 inno-

vative 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 Executive Director of Surgery Fraser Health

Members of Turkey’s Party Makers revel in victory following the thrilling finale at the 37th annual Cloverdale Bed Races May 15.

Five in a row for Turkey’s

By Jennifer Lang Speed is key at the Cloverdale Bed Races, an annual favourite that draws crowds to the historic town centre during Rodeo Week. When Turkey’s Party Makers edged past Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers to take the first heat, the screams and cheers from the crowd could be heard all the way across Surrey. Turkey’s managed to snag its fifth Bed Pan trophy in a row in the thrilling finale against an impressively-matched team from The Henry Public House. Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s ArcAngels – representing the Cloverdale trades campus and made up of welding students and university staff – took home the award for best costume. Lord Tweedsmuir picked up the Centre of the Universe trophy, awarded to the fastest mixed team – a new event, and a new award, honouring the late Bill Reid, one of Cloverdale’s biggest boosters. The 37th annual Cloverdale Bed Races followed the annual Decorated Bike Parade. Prizes are awarded by draw.

Kyler Overgaard poses with the Centre of the Universe trophy, a new award honouring Bill Reid given to the fastest mixed team.

Costumes and decorations lend a sense of fun to the kid’s bike parade, left, and spectators gather to watch the Bed Races.

arents cherish their children more than anything in the world. We all want to see kids protected and cared for to ensure they grow up to be healthy and welladjusted adults. When the time comes for parents to entrust their kids’ care with someone else, it can be a nerve wracking experience that’s made even more difficult if it’s difficult to find the right child-care provider. I’m happy to report that our government is providing $14.8 million to increase the number of new licensed child-care spaces for kids in British Columbia. The money can be used to build new child-care facilities, renovate existing buildings or purchase equipment to support new child-care spaces in an existing facility. Areas of the province that are currently underserved, including Surrey and Abbotsford, will be given preference, as will facilities on school grounds, which helps kids make a smooth transition from the classroom to after-school care. Under the B.C. Early Years Strategy, our government wants to support the creation up to 1,000 new childcare spaces between now and next March. We will also invest $17.1 million next fiscal year for an additional 1,000 spaces. These will be on top of the approximately 104,000 spaces our government

currently supports throughout the province. It’s never going to be easy for parents to hand over their precious treasures to the care of others. But our government is trying to ensure parents have options. The B.C. Early Childhood tax Benefit starting in 2015, will provide $146 million per year to approximately 180,000 families with kids under the age of six — up to $660 per year per child. And government is providing $126 million this year through our childcare subsidy program to help make child-care more affordable for low-income families. That program helped 45,000 children and made life a little easier for their parents or guardians. Less stress for families means better quality time together, and that’s something all of us can get behind.

Families

SO...NOW YOU’RE A PARENT - BUT WHERE DID YOU GO? By Paula Church, Community Counsellor - Support for Parents of Young Children

omething happens when you bring that baby home, and your once neat and orderly sanctuary you has become an unfamiliar land of burping cloths covering the sofas and a rattle covered floor which you need to navigate in order to not set off a series of events which ends with your hot coffee landing all over the pile of clean, unfolded laundry you were planning to get to two days ago. As most people will tell you: enjoy every moment! They grow so fast! The first year is full of so much change in growth and development. Your precious newborn goes from a helpless, fragile and completely dependent baby to a walking, somewhat talking and in some cases very active pre-toddler in only 365 days! By the time they are three years old, your child has become their own person, with their own ideas and a new set of challenges for you as parents. So many times parents feel that putting everyone else’s needs ahead of their own is the right priority. And in some respects that is true. However, maintaining your own sense of self is not only important, it is essential for being able to meet the needs of others. You may be asking yourself, “How can I do that?” Depending on your own individual circumstances, you can find ways to build your own time and interests into your new life as a parent. If you are feeling like you may be in need of rediscovering your own self—allow for the opportunity to think about what that means to you or what that could look like. The first step Be gentle on yourself. We don’t often think about what happens to us as people when we become parents. It’s a huge change! A

S

“CLC changed my life for the better. It’s easier for me to learn here”

happy change, but a big adjustment. It’s okay to feel like you miss doing the things you used to do. This does not mean you do not love your children. It just means you miss doing certain things you do not have time or money for now. Talk to the people in your life who are your supports. Whether a spouse, sister or friend. Let them know that you are interested in making some small adjustments to bring yourself some ME time. Maybe your spouse is feeling similarly, and balancing time could work out for both of you. The next step: Create a routine early as possible. Small steps such as making sure your young children get to bed early in the evening is essential in creating a time for you to have down time at night. This is sometimes overlooked, and by the time you get the little ones to bed at night, you are ready to go too. Make a plan to prepare food, or housekeeping to allow for an hour or so a week that you can fit in a bit of ME time. Some new parents find that trying to balance home life, relationships and parenting can leave little time for anything else. It is possible with a bit of preplanning and a strong desire. Of course, we need to meet the needs of our children! That is not a question. What I am saying that with a little planning, support and self encouragement – it is possible to still enjoy being the person you were before children! So, if any of this resonates with you….look for some support, make a plan – and hey….take up a program at a local rec center, pull out that scrap book you started before baby or start running as you have always dreamed! There is always something that can work for every family!

Do you have a teenager 15 through 19 years of age, and not attending one of the local high schools regularly? Are they not fitting in well in the larger school setting? Are they having difficulty balancing eight classes at a time?

ESTABLISHING AND MAINTAINING A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR CHILD CARE PROVIDER By Sharen Wedel, Program Manager for the Child Care Resource and Referral (CCRR)

he process of choosing a child care provider for your child is often time consuming and the cause of some anxiety. Once you have found someone who meets the needs of your child and the family, it is time to establish a relationship with that new person in your child’s life. This relationship is best described as a partnership between the child care provider and the family. Partnerships are based on regular communication, shared decision making, and mutual trust. You will also need to add in some sensitivity to each other’s perspectives – parents will be looking at the needs of their child and the child care provider will also need to look at how to best meet the needs of all the children in her care. Respect for the unique role each of you play in your child’s life and the belief that each other is doing the best they can will enhance the partnership. Simple ways a parent can let their child care provider know they appreciate their work: • Make sure your child is fed and well rested

T

• Be on time for drop off and pick up • Treat your provider professionally • Be considerate of non-working hours • Be prompt with payments • Adhere to policies and read notices that are sent home • Share information that will assist your provider in caring for your child • Communicate early about concerns, before problems grow The child care setting is a place where your child spends the majority of their day – very similar to your workplace. Children will establish relationships with the child care providers, friendships with the children and gain security from the familiarity of this environment. It is worth the effort to establish and maintain a productive partnership with the child care provider.

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT YOUR CHILD CARE PROVIDER

deally parents and child care providers will have developed a mutual communication pattern that will allow each to bring up concerns and have them addressed and resolved to the satisfaction of both parties. Identifying the source of your concern is the first step in developing a plan of action. Generally speaking there are three categories that give rise to parental concerns. Health & safety of the environment; interactions between the children and/or between the child and care provider; and application of policies and procedures. It is important to be able to be specific about what has caused your concern and your goal in seeing it resolved. When the discussion with the child care provider takes place it needs to be at a time when there can be privacy. State your

I

concerns in a calm and respectful manner. You may be bringing up a matter that has been identified and a plan for its resolution is in place. Listen carefully to the child care provider and add any information or suggestions you feel may be helpful. Arrange a suitable time in the future to discuss the progress in resolving the problem. If after the discussion with the child care provider there does not seem to be a resolution that is agreeable to both parties you will need to proceed with choosing another child care setting for your child. Concerns relating to health and safety that are not resolved need to be reported to the Community Care Facilities Licensing. There is a licensing officer assigned to each licensed facility and they will follow up to ensure the health and safety of the children.

Rondriso Farms is a small family run operation located in Surrey, B.C. The Tamis Family has been farming in Surrey since 1958.

By Marianne Drew Pennington, Executive Director, BC Association of Family Resource Programs s any new parent learns, it’s not easy being a mom or dad (or caregiving grandparent). It’s lonely, isolating and sometimes downright baffling. And it’s great to have someone to talk to and a place to go on days when it all feels a bit much. That simple premise is at the heart of more than 270 Family Resource Programs operating in B.C. Their work is centred on a grassroots concept developed in the 1970s that still thrives today. Wherever you live in B.C., chances are there’s a Family Resource Program (FRP) nearby (www. frpbc.ca/directory). Family Resource Programs are community-based programs designed to strengthen parenting skills, provide stimulating play environments for children and promote family and community engagement. FRPs are guided by provincial standards developed by The BC Association of Family Resource Programs (FRPBC). These Standards assure the delivery of highquality, comprehensive, accessible programs for families with young children. Most Family Resource Programs are open five days per week for three to four hours per day. Early Childhood Educators facilitate play-based learning activities to support children’s learning and development. Family support staff provide resources and support to parents and other caregivers. The parent-child interactive drop-in program is the gateway which promotes engagement, while connecting parents/caregivers to a continuum of research-based family development services that include: 1) family support, 2) play-

A

based learning, 3) early learning and literacy, 4) parent education, and 5) information and referrals. There are over 270 Family Resource Programs located in family service organizations, community centres, Neighbourhood Houses, Friendship Centres, Military Family Centres and Boys and Girls Clubs across the province. For some families attending the daily parent/ child Drop-In is what’s needed to connect with other families, learn about early childhood development and the importance of children’s play. Other families, experiencing difficulties, may require individualized support such as counselling, mental health or legal services. Family Resource Programs provide wrap-around support to address the needs of all families. Families attend FRPs for a variety of personal and social reasons, but once there, they also connect to resources and other services in their communities. FRPs are central for newcomers raising young children. Parents who are struggling suddenly discover they’re getting help to work through their challenges. They learn better ways to parent. With the growing concern at all levels about children in provincial care, FRPs go back to the basics providing families with the support they need to raise their children and keep the family together. They build on people’s strengths, acknowledging that virtually all parents want to be good parents. The family-resource approach positively impacts the ability of adults to parent their children.

While you’re not looking, this is what’s happening to BC’s world renowned recycling program.

Well, lookie here. One minute you have a perfectly good Blue Box recycling program. The next, something new and rather questionable is being put in its place. And they thought they’d get away with it right under your nose, without telling you or asking your opinion. That’s definitely not democracy in action. The BC Government, elected by us to represent our best interests, has decided to offload the costs of recycling to big multi-national corporations. To implement this new plan, they’ve set up an association that doesn’t really seem to hold the environment, local jobs, or the municipalities that run the Blue Box program, close to its heart.

Perhaps that’s why some of our local elected officials are using the word “scam” to describe how the new program is being set up. It’s also perhaps why several of BC’s municipalities refuse to jump on board. That’s gotta tell you something. Now it’s your turn to let Premier Christy Clark know what you think. Contact her today to say that dismantling an already-working recycling program to replace it with something that few people think will be as good, is a bad idea.

What’s going on here?

Email Christy Clark at premier@gov.bc.ca or call 250-387-1715. For more info, visit RethinkItBC.ca. #RethinkItBC.
