D-Day veteran lauded

Meyer feels pressure

France’s highest honour

Councillor ‘obligated’ to cross picket line

A South Surrey man was among six B.C. veterans bestowed with France’s highest honour, during an event last Wednesday marking the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. The Ordre national de la Légion d’honneur was presented to John (Jack) Phillips in Vancouver by Consul General of France JeanChristophe Fleury on behalf of the president of France. “I felt very honoured and very surprised,” Phillips said Friday of the distinction.

A White Rock councillor says he will not let a city strike stop him – again – from doing his civic duties. Grant Meyer said Monday he would cross the CUPE 402-01 picket line outside city hall to attend the evening’s council meeting – where he planned to give notice of a motion suggesting a possible rebate to residents, should the city realize savings from the job action. Meyer was the sole councillor to miss the May 12 meeting because he would not cross the picket line. He said at the time that, as a unionized BC Ferries worker, he had to respect CUPE’s picket. Monday, he told Peace Arch News he has a job to do. “I’d rather not cross picket lines, but it kind of backs me into a corner,” Meyer said, describing it as an “awkward situation.” “That’s my obligation.” City employees launched a fullscale strike on May 12. While city bylaws are being enforced, services such as garbage, green waste and recycling pickup are on hold. i see page 4

South Surrey veteran John (Jack) Phillips is thanked by Consul General of France Jean-Christophe Fleury. “I was doing a patrol time down there, (with) a couple of 500-pound bombs, to try and place them on the airport and hopefully put it out of commission,” he said.

“It was actually pitch dark when I was there, I actually couldn’t see the airport at all. But I made an attack as close to the airport as I could make out. “As soon as I started my attack,

they opened fire on me, so I knew I was on the airport all right. So I just dropped my two 500-pound bombs and got out of there as quickly as I could.” i see page 4

White Rock considers $80,000 expenditure for historical tribute to train-station history

Bronze sculpture eyed for seaside plaza Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A bronze sculpture celebrating the history and people of the White Rock train station may soon grace the city’s waterfront. White Rock council was to consider approving up to $80,000 for the project at its meeting Monday night, after Peace Arch News’ press deadline. In a report recommending council endorse the request, the city’s director of leisure services Eric Stepura notes that public art “shapes the environment around it.” The proposed sculpture “will not only be a

Bridge work

figurative representation of the history of the White Rock train station, one of the oldest and most iconic buildings in White Rock, but will add to the artistic landscape of the city and will be a tourism draw for the waterfront,” Stepura writes. The funding request follows council’s March 31 endorsement of a limited call for artists for the work, which is hoped to be installed on the water-side plaza of the White Rock Museum & Archives by fall. In his report, Stepura notes the sculpture is among projects that were assigned to the public-

art task force when it formed in January. They are to also initiate a mural and recommend a site for a sculpture garden on city-owned land. The amount requested is based on research into the cost of similar historical bronze sculptures (including Nathan Scott’s Homecoming in Victoria), and includes all anticipated costs – from the artist’s fees to insurance and delivery. Stepura recommended the funds, if approved, come from the community public-art-project budget. So far this year, $59,950 of the $150,000 available has been spent or committed, leaving $90,050 available for the sculpture, he writes.

BNSF crews work on ‘enhancement’ of the Serpentine trestle, part of what spokesman Gus Melonas says is “several million dollars” worth of upgrades the railway has committed to for its line through the White Rock and South Surrey area this year. Much-anticipated work on the trestle over the Semiahmoo First Nation’s Little Campbell River is hoped to get underway in the fall.

Warning signage targeting pedestrians to be erected at White Rock railway crossings by summer

BNSF to close West Beach waterfront railing gaps Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Gaps in railings intended to discourage people from crossing the BNSF train tracks along White Rock’s waterfront are to be closed this week. City engineer Greg St. Louis announced the plan during Thursday’s rail-safety task force meeting, held in the board room of Tourism White Rock’s Russell Avenue office. “They’re going to be closing up the gaps on West Beach… hopefully Tuesday,” he said, of work to be undertaken by BNSF. It is among steps being completed with an aim to improve safety along the tracks – a topic that has been of particular focus since last July, following the tragic derailment in Lac Mégantic, Que. and the death of jogger Anita Lewis in White Rock. Task force members anticipate that signs warning pedestrians to ‘Look, Listen, Live’

A freight train rolls along the waterfront. will be posted at the waterfront’s six rail crossings by summer. While the design of the signs has not been finalized, committee chair Coun. Grant Meyer said he favours bold black letters on a bright yellow background. He suggested four be erected at each of the crossings – two on either side – for the best odds of getting the message to pedestrians. Coun. Al Campbell said the ‘Look, Listen,

Live’ message “says it all.” Campbell and Meyer were among city officials to host BNSF representatives – including Daryl Ness, general manager of the railway’s northwest division – for a safety-oriented tour of the waterfront rail line on May 15. The tour was offered during a meeting last month in Seattle between Meyer, city manager Dan Bottrill and BNSF officials. Meyer told Peace Arch News the visit lasted about four hours and “went really well.” (A request by PAN to accompany the tour was denied by BNSF, in an effort to encourage participants to talk openly.) The group walked the entire promenade, as well as about one kilometre west to the Coldicutt Ravine – a popular walking route that the city wants to formally include as part of the promenade. “Now I think they (BNSF) realize why we’ve kind of been saying if we separate (the

walkway), it’s going to solve a lot of issues,” Meyer said. The city has earmarked just under $2 million for the extension – $90,000 in 2014 for the design, and $1.63 million in 2015 for the construction. As the project is eyed for BNSF land that is not part of the city’s existing lease with the railway, Meyer said a memorandum of understanding must be in place before the extension can proceed. He said Ness suggested the MoU could be ready within six months. Meyer said detailed plans won’t be prepared until there’s an assurance it can go ahead. “We’re not going to do it until basically we’ve got an agreement saying we can do it,” he said. “That was our position.” Railway spokesperson Gus Melonas described the visit as “cordial,” and said BNSF looks forward to working with the city on “future enhancements.”

Councillor to suggest tax rebates i from page 1 Meyer said citizens are particularly upset with the lack of garbage pickup, and said the city should look at whether a rebate on residents’ property taxes is warranted, to compensate for them paying for services they

aren’t receiving. “I’d be willing to have staff look at that,” Meyer said. “That’s something I’d definitely be in favour with” if the city realized savings during the strike. “People are trying to make do. The big one is garbage,” he said.

Mayor Wayne Baldwin could not be reached by PAN press deadline Monday, however, Meyer said the mayor has indicated to him that he would support the rebate motion. Mediated talks are scheduled for Wednesday and Friday.

Peace Arch News Published at South Surrey by Black Press Ltd.


Don’t let our guard down


any in our community will be glad to hear that a suspect has been arrested in the death of Surrey hockey mom Julie Paskall. The tragedy – she was attacked and clubbed while she waited for her 14-year-old son outside Newton Arena on Dec. 29 – shocked her neighbourhood, and the rest of Surrey, into action. It raised awareness of issues that had already made many in Newton fearful of venturing outside after dark. And by and large, Surrey RCMP has responded well to residents’ calls for more police presence, including reinstating the city’s bike patrol, and more effective community policing. This weekend’s announcement, by the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, of the arrest of a 27-year-old suspect, who has been charged with second-degree murder, must come as a welcome first step toward closure for Paskall’s loved ones, friends and neighbours. But we cannot allow it to simply become a check-mark in a box under the heading of “appropriate action.” The charges, of course, must be proven before we can be sure that the perpetrator has been correctly identified. And the fact that the suspect is from out of the province and had only lived in the community a matter of weeks before the crime, should not have any bearing on our thinking about crime prevention. The safety issues raised by Paskall’s death and the insecurity that people in Newton – and other areas of Surrey – have felt about the potential for violent crime have not vanished with the announcement of the arrest. The valid concerns of the public cannot be allowed to dissipate in a sense of relief that a potential perpetrator has been found. Whatever the methods or motivations of this particular crime, we cannot lose sight of the crucial third element – opportunity. As the city grows, our concern for the security and livability of our neighbourhoods must grow accordingly. More than simply demanding more RCMP members and more visible deployment, we should also give greater attention to the kind of city we are building. Whatever grandiose development schemes we subscribe to, safety must be a key element of the planning process – unless we wish to see all of Surrey fall victim to a common malaise of increasingly urbanized environments.

schools, and we do need to keep vigilant about the racism that continues to haunt the hallways and classrooms where our children learn. “Of course aboriginal history should never be reduced to victim history, and with the Stó:lo atlas we sought to show the complexity of aboriginal history, and we sought to show that not only are there aboriginal people in Canada’s history, but that Canada is in aboriginal peoples’ histories. “There were times in the past when aboriginal people were victimized (residential schools being a tragic example), and there were times when aboriginal people showed great agency (retaining the masked dance, and continuing to fish salmon, for example). “Knowing that native society was not a Utopia when Europeans arrived does not take away from the importance of learning about the full history of aboriginal people and their relationship with Canadian society. “And of course, as Ernie Crey has reminded me many times, let’s never forget that native rights are not based on race. Rather, they are rights based on prior occupation. And let’s also not forget that it is British and Canadian law that recognizes aboriginal peoples’ inherent rights. “Let’s teach good history to our youth so they can understand the complex relationship between settler society and aboriginal society.

Peace Arch News

Affordability a prime concern Editor: On a side trip to White Rock – where I lived for 20 years from the late-’60s thru the ’80s – I was interested to see in Thursday’s Peace Arch News the “same old, same old” issues affecting folks in 2014 as they did back in the day. School board budget deficits; municipal workers’ strike for a better compensation package; teacher bargaining impasse over salaries and working conditions… Now, whether it’s health, education, welfare, transit or any other publicpurse expense, it’s the taxpayers’ ability to pay that must drive debate. As ever, all public revenue comes first and foremost from the sale of goods and services to willing purchasers – e.g. school districts selling classroom seats to offshore families willing to pay beaucoup tuition for their billeted children. Or it could be coal. Or LNG. Or wood. Or tourism. Only after the purchase of something of value do taxation pools from income, GST and/or real estate taxes arise as a secondary revenue source. Thus, if commercial sales of goods and services do not keep pace with public-sector spending demands, there must be a reckoning of priorities; if more for education then perhaps less for health or social services and maybe less still for transportation and/or a reduction in capital project investments. Either those kinds of priority choices, or the government must mortgage the province by borrowing money and generating downstream debt-loads for our children and our children’s children and so on, for generations to come. The solution to White Rock’s civic-worker problems or the school district’s budget/teacher compensation problems is not a simple “Throw money at it to make it stop!” as some suggest. The only truly relevant question that must be answered first is “Where does the money come from?” Followed by “How?” Followed by “Why?” Triangulating any of the noted issues in this way for public debate is the only way to achieve insight and discernment at what the appropriate answers might be. And that’s what we collectively elect our legislatures, councils and boards to do on our behalf. May they ever act wisely and discreetly in how they spend the money we taxpayers give them in trust. W. Baird Blackstone, Tsawwassen

We’re doing your jobs Editor: I would like to extend a thank you to CUPE for forcing me to stop and smell the roses… or is that the smell of rotting garbage? Why yes, I believe it is. Thanks for making me spend hours of my time driving to the landfill, paying out my cash money

for a service I already pay for and waiting in lineups on my time off to do so. You thought that going on strike would foster support for your cause? Not here. Not at my neighbours’ houses either. Good job. Civilians have started to do your members’ jobs, too. Maybe we don’t need you that badly after all. B. Jakob, White Rock

‘Anti-bias’ rules marginalize us An open letter to the Surrey Board of Education. As you launch the new school year considering the dynamic and diverse district of Surrey schools, I wonder if you realize the majority of the school populous diversity lies in their cultural and moral values, and not in what is in their pants and the intended use thereof. When you talk of human rights,

you come across as very biased and discriminatory towards the majority that is involved in contributing, physically, financially and emotionally toward the successful operation of the schools. While preoccupied with not marginalizing anyone, you actually are marginalizing most of them. I question your assertion, that the new regulation of ‘sexual orientation and gender equality’ provides equality for all. In fact, it is extremely discriminatory towards the majority. The Safe & Caring Schools Policy that you so lovingly talk about actually creates an environment of fear and oppression for those who hold a different view. It is, in fact, a gag order for many students, their parents and teachers. It is the kind of dictatorship that is commonly witnessed in the Third World underdeveloped countries, that some of us have left to migrate to a democratic country, where there is freedom of speech, freedom of religion and equality for all, not a select few.

The world’s our stage Editor: It was a quiet night on the Promenade Thursday evening for a couple of licensed street performers, so we packed up and left early. But we were surprised to find our “hat” contained $2, plus a small packet of Bank of Pakistan banknotes, 4,000 rupees. This converted to more than $40! Lera-Lan & Alan Thomson (a.k.a.

Letter-writer S. Cunningham notes protesters target oil pipelines, while another mode of transport is apparent.

Distraction from the waterfront Editor: The train I photographed (above) consisted of about 118 tank cars and only one open bulk car. Is this the future of petroleum transport through B.C.? While the focus of protesters is on blocking pipelines, this ramping up of rail shipments of oil increases. Interesting! S. Cunningham, Surrey

Apathy pervasive Re: Rail safety comes down to hope, May 8 letters. To keep the trains from running through White Rock would be to use the spur line in Sumas to link up with the lines that CP uses for their Coal Trains. We have to get Prime Minister Stephen Harper to tell BNSF to use that spur line, give our lifestyle back to us, without the loss of sleep, property values declining and unnecessary deaths associated with the train traffic. There is an apathy which I find pervasive throughout White Rock and Surrey of not wanting to do anything about the trains. Maybe it is the elderly population, or a feeling of being overwhelmed by the costs involved or just who cares. If we don’t speak up and do something constructive about the trains, Harper and BNSF will make our lives miserable and unbearable. After three years of writing to BNSF, I have a letter from its legal department. In part, BNSF say that they

are doing nothing wrong, and there are no complaints, and everything is wonderful, and they are complying with all Canadian laws. Robert Melynchuk, Surrey

A poetic rebuke I have formulated the following poem to make it more acceptable to letter format: Screeching, screaming, howling, wailing miles and miles of tanker cars rumble past our homes rattling our windows banging at our walls. Chlorine, chloride, sodium hydroxide, hexyltrichlorosilane, organophosphorus pesticides, hydrochloric acid and sulfur dioxide, trichlorosilane, ammonia, sulfuric acid, aldehyde hydrogen peroxide, hot asphalt, heating oil crude oil, fuel oil, diesel fuel, petroleum ethanol, methanol, coal unfit to burn butylene, octanes, petroleum and gasoline, liquid hydrocarbons, explosive, toxic, flammable residue from sewer pipes in tanker cars of tin. They’ll find us as we’re sleeping or sitting by our fireplace or digging in the garden on a summer afternoon. We’ll never know what killed us when the train derails. Ben Nuttall-Smith, Surrey

Volunteers Keith and Margaret Gilley will be a part of the annual Semiahmoo Heritage Trail Walk set for this weekend.

Annual walk marks 140th anniversary

Exploring Semiahmoo heritage Sarah Massah


Staff Reporter

t’s not exactly a walk down memory lane, but the annual Semiahmoo Heritage Trail Walk will take participants along a path rich in history. The annual walk – which will take place May 31 as part of Surrey’s Environmental Extravaganza – will also mark the 140th year since the Semiahmoo Wagon Road was completed between Brown’s Landing on the Fraser River to Blaine. The stretch of trail that participants will walk along will also include portions of the wagon road, Friends of Semiahmoo Heritage Trail volunteer Keith Gilley noted.

“It’s the exact spot where the naturalist and birder, Al Schulze, wagon road was, all that 140 an environmentalist and birder years ago,” he said, adding that and Ron Meadley, also an there is still evidence of Brown’s environmentalist, who will speak Landing along the Fraser River. about the trees of the trail. “It actually became “The guys who Brown’s Hill.” ❝It’s the exact spot lead love to be asked The annual where the wagon questions,” Maggie walk, organized by “The volunteers road was, all that 140 said. passionate volunteers are just amazing years ago.❞ like Gilley, and his people.” wife, Maggie, will This year, in honour Keith Gilley feature a number of of the anniversary, activities. the city will also be Hugh Ellenwood, the archives gifting participants with native manager at the White Rock seedlings.

The annual walk will kick off at 2 p.m. at the southeast corner of 148 Street and 28 Avenue.

Two Semiahmoo Secondary students wowed the crowd at the annual African Canadian Continuing Education Society appreciation luncheon with the strength of their words. Grade 11 student Ariel Zhang and Grade 10 student Selina Shivji “lit up the room” when they performed poems they had written at the May 14 luncheon, according to a news release from ACCES, which was founded by White Rock residents George and Beth Scott in 1993 in order to provide support to Kenyan communities.

The competition aims to “involve and inspire students in the White Rock/South Surrey community to write and reflect on the power of education.” Puneet Tatla and Peter Woo, who also competed, received honourable mentions. All competitors researched education in Kenya and transformed what they learned into spoke word poems. “Before this contest, I never really thought about how education can save lives and i see page 12

Through research, I discovered that education for people in developing countries is the gate to a future that isn’t composed of living in a shack or going hungry every night,” Zhang said in the release. “I will never complain about school again – or try my hardest, at least.” The event also featured a presentation from Kenyan lawyer, Carlestous Shifwoka, who received support from ACCES to achieve his goals. Shifwoka is currently a member of the ACCES-Kenya advisory council, owns his own law firm in Kakamega and is personally sponsoring students through ACCES.

White Rock senior turns 100 Anne Paone received congratulatory letters from Queen Elizabeth and the prime minister


ith a big smile and friends by her side, Sunnyside Manor resident Anne Paone celebrated her 100th birthday on May 21. To her delight, many notable people sent her mail, including Queen Elizabeth, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Premier Christy Clark, Governor General David Johnston, MLA Gordon Hogg and a representative from the City of White Rock. Sunnyside Manor residents and Paoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter Georgie cheerfully sang Happy Birthday, gathered for tea and handed her cards and flowers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has such a great sense of humour,â&#x20AC;? says activity co-ordinator Jacking Jennings, who organized the get-together. Paone has always been fond of Queen Elizabeth II, who is 12 years her junior. In her royal birthday letter, Her Majesty wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am delighted to

hear that you are celebrating your one hundredth birthday. I send you my warmest congratulations on this happy occasion and good wishes for an enjoyable day.â&#x20AC;? Signed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Elizabeth R.â&#x20AC;? The message included a photo of the Queen donning a pearl necklace, along with a matching light-blue dress and signature hat on a trip to Canada in the summer of 2010. Over the past 50 years, she has worn 5,000 different hats and was spotted wearing her favourites 20 or 30 times. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even rumoured that Her Majesty travels with a separate train car to accommodate her vast collection. Growing up in the early 1990s, Queen Elizabeth and Poane saw the world change in much the same way. Looking at back-and-white photos of her childhood, wedding day and mother brought back fond memories for Paone, who was born and raised in Vancouver and, with three brothers, was the only girl in her family. Due to technological advances and a major increase in population, Vancouver in the early-1900s was much different than it is today. Back then, many of the roads were

still gravel and streetcars whisked people to and from work. Spotting livestock in residential areas was much more common than it is today. When Paone was a child, she attended Carleton School in East Vancouver and, in her spare time, looked after chickens, rabbits and a cow. From a young age, her mother taught her how to knit and sew and, in the future, she put these skills to good use by making her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothes and household curtains. Paone is still an avid knitter and donates much of her work to charity. When the time came to begin work, Paone was employed by a telephone company to make phonebooks. But her life wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all work. She loved going to dances and it was at one of these events that she met George, her future husband. They eventually married at St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church when Paone was 26 years old. The couple owned a mobile home in Birch Bay and spent many pleasant weekends there, and occasionally travelled to San Francisco to visit their large extended family. Happy 100th birthday!

Hope for Osteoarthritis: Cold Laser Therapy Cold Laser Therapy (often also called Low Intensity Laser Therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy) is an innovative treatment for osteoarthritis and several other – often painful – conditions. Laser light transfers energy to interior cells • Stimulates natural healing • Restores normal cellular structure and function • Prevents future injury What you will experience: • Pain goes away • Reduced inflammation/swelling • Restored mobility Why Cold Laser? • Healing, not just masking of pain • Safe, drug free & no side effects • Avoid or delay the need for surgery • Accelerate and strengthen the body’s natural healing mechanisms The Concept Behind Cold Laser Therapy The healing power of light The concept of Cold Laser Therapy is actually quite simple. As humans, light plays a very important role in our existence. Similar to how plant cells require light for photosynthesis, our cells need light to power many of the normal processes that keep us healthy and happy. As long as we are exposed to enough regular sunlight, our skin absorbs the light we need and our cells can use it for many of their normal functions. If our cells are working normally, then our bodies are able to withstand different stresses from day to day activities and heal various ailments. Light therapy is not a new concept. It has been and continues to be used by doctors to treat a wide variety of conditions. For example, light has shown to be effective for treating many skin conditions including psoriasis and acne, depression and even tuberculosis before there were medications. Most people who suffer from arthritis can attest to the fact that their pain usually reduces or even completely subsides during the summer months or on a vacation to a sunny destination. Vitamin D, critical for keeping our bones healthy and strong, is created in our bodies by a process that requires sunlight. In places where there isn’t much sunlight available year round, people are usually encouraged to take vitamin D supplements during the darker months to help support their bones and prevent against bone-softening conditions such as rickets (in children) or osteoporosis. When we experience pain or inflammation from a problem or injury in an area of our body, the normal cellular processes slow down and our body has trouble healing as a result. Blood flow to these areas also gets interrupted, which restricts the ability of important nutrients to be delivered to the cells that need to heal. The science Scientific research conducted over the last few decades has shown that human cells heal better and faster when the right wavelengths of light energy get delivered to them. Cold Laser Therapy is a breakthrough solution for osteoarthritis pain because it shines a concentrated amount of most helpful wavelengths of light vital for healing (in the red and infrared parts of the spectrum) directly on affected areas. This allows the cartilage, bones and surrounding inflamed tissues to be exposed to the healthy light that otherwise would not reach these areas. By delivering just the helpful parts of the light spectrum, the overall laser light power can be kept at very low and therefore very safe levels, which will not burn or otherwise harm the skin or any other tissues. How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work? Cold Laser Therapy delivers light based energy to cells, helping to accelerate the body’s natural healing process at the cellular level. It targets injured cells, resulting in elimination and prevention of pain, reduction of inflammation and swelling, and improved range of motion. Laser therapy does not just mask the pain, it actively stimulates SKIN (Epidermis) healing to resolve musculoskeletal conditions for the long term. SKIN (Dermis) Red Array The Bioflex Cold Laser Therapy system is a three step process, each using a FAT different wavelength of light which has been found to optimally stimulate Infrared Array your body’s cells. The first step uses a red light pad at 660 nm, which gets absorbed by the cells of the skin and underlying superficial layers of musMUSCLE cle. The second step uses an infrared light pad at 830 nm, reaching deeper Infrared into the muscle layers, as well as the tendons and ligaments. The third Laser step includes an infrared laser wand at 840 nm that is placed specifically on the affected areas by a trained laser therapist. This light is very conBONE centrated and targets the deepest affected structures, stimulating healing inside affected joints and even bone.

Mrs. M. tries Cold Laser Therapy for her Knee Pain Mrs. M. suffered from ever more debilitating levels of pain in both of her knees for a long time, caused by the increasingly common condition of osteoarthritis. She was having great difficulty walking for longer periods of time or going up and down stairs. Sleeping through the night had become a problem, because the pain would wake her. Even simple movements like getting up after having been seated for a while (watching television or having dinner) had become extremely painful. It came to be normal for her to rely on painkillers to help her function on a day to day basis. Over the years, she had undertaken numerous therapies and treatments to stem the tide of ever increasing pain without much success. Even full knee replacement surgery on her left knee only helped to a degree, leaving her with discomfort in the replaced knee even well after the expected post surgical healing time. When Mrs. M. first visited us at Solaj Wellness Centre, she enquired about Cold Laser Therapy and was wondering if the treatments might help in reducing the pain in her right knee, and maybe even prevent the need for knee replacement surgery in the future. After finding out some more details about Cold Laser Therapy, she decided that it was well worth her time and money to give this treatment a try. In her thinking, the upside of avoiding much more invasive and therefore risky surgery was significant and as she had found out on her other knee, replacement surgery wasn’t a guaranteed full success either. After the first four treatment sessions, Mrs. M. was experiencing significantly less discomfort in her knee and she could finally sleep throughout the night without being woken up by pain. And after just two weeks of treatment sessions, she stopped taking pain medication altogether. Having had to take painkillers on a daily basis for years and putting up with their unpleasant side effects, being able to discontinue her daily painkiller regimen was another true milestone moment for her. As she continued her treatments, Mrs. M.’s knee continued to show meaningful improvement. Now she was able to take longer walks with her husband along the beach. And she even started to ride the recumbent bike to help regain the strength in her knee. After 15 treatments over an 8 week period, Mrs. M. was able to stop her treatments. She had virtually no knee pain, had continued to stay off pain medication and was able to become more active than she had been in years. When Mrs. M. came back to Solaj two months after her last treatment for a check-up and “refresher” treatment (commonly suggested for those with significant arthritis), she continued to have no pain in her knee and she has been able to keep up with her new, increased level of physical activity. A little while later, we received this email from Mrs. M: ely painful ars with extrem a number of ye r te placement re af nt ee de kn e on very desp d one complet an e ur did not ed “I had become oc th pr ic thritic knee at One arthroscop mely painful ar tion in tre ica ex ed arthritic knees. e m on in ith pa d to deal w prescription on t en nd pe later I continue de d g and remaine require replacin Centre basic level. ry ve a on n Solaj Wellness tio order to func bmitted by the su r would it pe at pa l th ca as lo article in our m the article w fro an ok ad to re I I t ything in en an Th main po willing to try r Therapy.

New fridge or no pain?

Hearing loss and mental well-being Good hearing is an important aspect of healthy living Whether in a business meeting, talking with friends or watching TV, the ability to hear clearly is an essential part of daily life. Research shows that good hearing is a vital component of healthy living, enabling us to live life to the fullest, said Mary Rankin, Hearing Instrument Practitioner from Expert Hearing Solutions in South Surrey. “For many years it has been known that untreated hearing loss can lead to social isolation and result in depression,” she added. Auditory Deprivation is a condition that can occur due to untreated hearing loss. If the brain is deprived of auditory information, as happens in untreated hearing loss, the auditory centres lose their ability to function properly. When attempts are made to remedy the loss through amplification, the brain may have difficulty interpreting the speech sounds not heard in a long time, explained Mary. Recent research has linked hearing loss to dementia. These studies show people with mild hearing loss are twice as likely to develop dementia, while those with severe hearing loss are five times more likely to develop dementia, said Mary. Accurate sensory input is vital to maintaining brain health and cognitive function. Mary recommends that routine health checks for people over 55 should include a hearing evaluation. “All hearing loss should be addressed sooner rather than later,” she said.

Dr. Melanie Rapoport from Solaj Wellness Centre says taking charge of your own health is the key to enjoying a fulfilling life.

It’s an all-too-common story: As seniors get older, many begin to suffer from increased pains and reduced mobility, often from osteoarthritis or from internal scar tissue build-up from long ago injuries or surgery. Often these seniors are told that there’s no cure for their pain and pain-killing medication is the only option, said Dr. Melanie Rapoport from Solaj Wellness Centre in South Surrey. “Sufferers would just have to get used to increasing pain and decreased mobility and one day maybe some sort of joint replacement or other surgery,” Rapoport explained, adding that for many such seniors this means putting up with side-effects of ever-increasing dosages of medication, some of them eventually undergoing surgery with the associated risks of complications including infections. “It’s a rather sad outlook, but healthcare pays for it,“ she added. “Many seniors give up and become passengers on this ride of pain. They just follow whatever the system suggests and pays for.” “On the other hand, at our cold lasertherapy clinic, we regularly see seniors who have decided to take charge of their own health future with their personal judgement, experience and money,“ Rapoport continued. “And we’ve seen remarkable reductions in pain and increased mobility in clients suffering from a number of common seniors’ ailments, including osteoarthritis and internal scar tissue buildup.” In closing, she quoted one of her clients, who told her husband: “We can either get the new fridge we’ve wanted, or I could try to get rid of my pain.” He replied that the fridge could wait.

Goss was a member of the New Westminster Salmonbellies during the late 1960s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s. He is a member of the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame. In 1982, while helping a friend build a cabin, he slipped and fell 10 metres onto rocks. He suffered a severe brain-stem injury, which affects balance, co-ordination and speech. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This tournament is our way of honouring him,â&#x20AC;? Stoten said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Wayne and his wife are pretty disappointed. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crushing for him that he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to come and watch.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just the tournament that has been

affected by the current job action. Stoten said the entire season is now in flux, as managers work frantically to find floor-time for home games for the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15 teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our whole season is in jeopardy,â&#x20AC;? he said. So far, Semi Lacrosse has managed to play a few games in other cities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as far away as Abbotsford and Delta â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Â but Stoten admits â&#x20AC;&#x153;floor space is pretty hard to come by.â&#x20AC;? Should the association fail to have all its home games played by the end of the season in June, fines are levied on Semiahmoo Lacrosse from the sportsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; governing bodies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Considering our circumstances, you hope maybe that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the case, but as it stands now, I understand weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be fined if the games are not played,â&#x20AC;? Stoten said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But (the strike) is killing us.â&#x20AC;?

Marriott boys knock off Yale in Fraser Valley rugby final


Mariners win junior title Nick Greenizan

Marriott’s Jackson Sylvester-Lee is tackled by a Yale Lion.

The Earl Marriott Mariners’ junior boys rugby team has ended its season in the best way possible – with a win. A win in the Fraser Valley championship game, against a previously undefeated team, no less. On Wednesday at Abbotsford’s Yale Secondary, the Mariners came from behind to edge the host school – which had been steamrolling opposing teams all season long – 14-12, thanks to a late try and the accurate kicking of Tyson Smith. “It’s just a great way to end the year,” said coach Scott Martens. “It’s been fairly common for us to be in the Fraser Valley final over the years, but Yale was unbeatable this season, so it was a big win.” Playing on the Yale Lions’ home turf – hosting duties for Fraser Valleys were decided long before the Abby school made the title game – the Mariners jumped out to an early first-half lead, abeit a slim 7-5 one. John Smith – no relation to Tyson – scored the Peninsula side’s try, and then Tyson Smith booted a conversion through the uprights from a near-imposi see page 24
