Planned park-in on 72 Ave. cancelled Construction stalled on four-laning roadway

A show of lights

JENNIFER LANG PHOTO

Gheorghe and Rodica Grigore of 6369 165A Street have strung up thousands of lights outside their Cloverdale home, making for a truly impressive display. It lights up the block – and seems to have inspired the neighbours, making this well worth finding. For more local lights, see page 5.

By Kevin Diakiw A plan to block 72 Avenue last Sunday has been temporarily shelved after an upset group of Clayton residents rescued their parking for now. The parking is being lost because of a long-planned four-laning of 72 Avenue. The project was given the go-ahead on Dec. 15 night by Surrey council. Area resident Scott Anderson said he and several neighbours had planned a “park-in” on 72 Avenue on Dec. 21 to

make their objection to the loss of parking known. At a Thursday meeting with the city, construction on the project was stalled until Jan. 15, when it’s hoped a new parking plan can be put in place. Anderson told Black Press last Friday neighbours will be actively involved in that plan, and if parking loss is still on, so is the planned blockage of 72 Avenue at a later date.

B.C.-only wines come to some grocery stores By Jeff Nagel The province’s latest liquor reform will make it easier for wine stores to relocate into grocery stores – provided they offer only B.C. wines – but there’s no sign the government is rethinking its change to wholesale wine pricing that will sharply drive up the price of more expensi–ve bottles. Friday’s announcement by Justice Minister Suzanne Anton in Langley at Chaberton Estate Winery is being hailed by B.C. wineries because some supermarkets that can begin selling wine come April will be barred from stocking foreign wines. Under the change, existing VQA and independent wine stores can relocate or transfer their licence to an eligible gro-

cery store as long as 100 per cent B.C. wine is sold. Those licence transfers won’t be limited by a rule that disallows new outlets if there’s an existing one within one kilometre. Liquor policy reform leader John Yap called it a “winning combination” to allow grocery shoppers to also buy B.C. wine and support the local industry. “The B.C. wine industry is entering into a new era of winemaking,” added Chaberton co-owner Eugene Kwan. The new model is different from the store-within-a-store model in that it allows B.C. wine to be on regular grocery store shelves and shoppers would pay for it at designated registers staffed by trained employees who are at least 19. Anton said a limited number of new licences – she would

The extra licences will mean more competition for private wine stores that have already been critical of some of the province’s liquor reforms. Vancouver lawyer Mark Hicken, who acts for the wine industry, predicts there will be “no takers” on wine stores relocating under the new B.C.-only model because they would lose most of their international product lines. Hicken said the B.C.-only rule may violate Canada’s international trade agreements. – Black Press

Boy, 3, hit and abandoned at bus stop By Kevin Diakiw A man has been arrested after a three-year-old boy was hit and abandoned at a Surrey bus stop on Saturday.

Police, public, raise donations This year’s Pack the Police Car campaign represents a big haul for local charities at Christmas time, including the Cloverdale Hamper Program. Surrey residents are being thanked for their generosity during the campaign. More than 5,000 pounds of food and $7,000 in cash donations were collected for the Surrey Food Bank, Sources Food Bank and the Cloverdale Christmas Hamper Program. Surrey RCMP employees also contributed another $500, bringing the final tally to $7,500 in cash for the three organizations. The detachment held two food drives outside grocery stores in Cloverdale, along with events in South Surrey and Newton, plus

led other holiday-themed initiatives. For example, police officers accompanied underprivileged youth on a Christmas shopping spree, sang Christmas carols to residents at local seniors facilities, decorated trees for local charities, and collected toys for abused children. “Our Christmas wish this year is for every resident to give back to the community in some way to make someone else’s holidays that much brighter,” Cpl. Bert Paquet said. “Although our campaign is over, we continue to urge residents to support local food banks and charities all year long.”

Ghosts of Christmas past – and of those yet to come

Free Face Peel with the purchase of 3 or more Indermica products.

At 7, I wondered: would Father Christmas find us at our new home in Canada?

Adventures

T

he weather outside wasn’t exactly frightful, but early December in a tent in an Ontario field was a long way from the Inverness-shire estate house where I’d lived before coming to Canada. I was seven years old, and before leaving Scotland I had complained to my mother about the lady who tucked me in at night. “Please tell her to stop,� I pleaded. Mother always smiled, and said she would do her best. When my aunts, Isa and Molly, came to visit, Isa simply refused to stay another night. Molly (as she told me years later) demanded: “Jean, what’s going on here? Someone tucked me in at 2 a.m.� As usual, Mother smiled and feigned ignorance. Old habits are, they say, hard to break. Nanny, the old family retainer, had tucked the Maxwell children into their beds for decades. Presumably, she just couldn’t resist the urge. The problem was, Nanny was dead. To my relief, Nanny – despite her extraterrestrial talents – hadn’t immigrated to Canada with us. However, I had a more pressing problem. Would Santa Claus find us? The previous February, our TCA Super Constellation had ‘gone mechanical’ en route from Prestwick to Malton necessitating a night stop in Iceland. Mother and I had been billeted in a hangar.  Surely Father Christmas, as I knew him in Britain, lurked behind all the nearby snow. By departure time he hadn’t shown up. Mother assured me that Nanny was a thing of the past, and Christmas was yet to come.  New Canadian friends insisted we abandon the tent in Clarkson for the holidays and spend Christmas at their house in Oakville. On the magical eve, a radio announcer confirmed that ‘an unidentified sleigh-type object’ had been spotted in the northern night sky. Santa arrived on cue.

A radio announcer confirmed that an ‘unidentified, sleightype-object’ had been spotted in the northern night sky. Books were my passion, and there was no shortage of them. That was also the

ture for my 10-year-old grandson. It was a photo and text saga of our summer holiday together. During his visit I’d hauled him off to the Surrey Museum, the Historic Stewart Farm, Science World, the Aviation Museum, the golf course, and shopped for his beloved space Lego. His 15-year-old

brother was particularly impressed. “Gran! You should publish this!� His mother laughed. “She just did! That’s it!� “Would you like one?� I asked. “Sure!� came the instant reply. With that kind of reader feed-back (and thanks to the magic of e-coupons and on-line publishing houses) Santa will be delivering books for me again this Christmas. In fact, to reassure myself, I flew to Iceland in October – just to be sure he’s still around. – Ursula Maxwell-Lewis is a writer and photographer, and founding editor/ publisher of the Cloverdale Reporter. She still believes in Santa Claus – and jewellery.

Last lap for hardworking racer His owner, Janice Wheeler, will retire Spider M to her farm – where he’ll return to the very stall of his birth. (His sire was Demons Bell and his broodmare was Sabrina Legacy). “After his race, Spider M will receive a retirement blanket in the winners circle from Harness Racing B.C.,” Wittup says. “Come and say bye to this pensioner!”

Hudon returns to drive for Food Bank Former Cloverdale resident Phil Hudon is returning to Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino for a couple of days at the races over the holidays. And he’s planning to give something back to the community. He’ll donate his drivers fees from his racing duties on Dec. 28 and Jan. 1 to the Surrey Food Bank. He’s in step with standardbred owner and trainer Daniel Gaboury, who is donating all earnings during the month of December for his horse, Buddy’s Hope, to the Surrey Food Bank. Gaboury’s offer will be matched by Fraser Downs and Harness Racing B.C. Executive Director Jackson Wittup – who have pledged to donate $50 each every time Buddy’s Hope wins this month.

PET EXPERT

By Jennifer Lang One of Canada’s most senior racehorses is calling it a day. This Sunday, Spider M, a Surrey-bred racehorse will make his final bid for glory at Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino. It’s almost unheard of for a horse to continue racing to the age of 15, but Spider M has been doing just that. On Dec. 28, the brown Standardbred makes his 289th lifetime start, capping off a hard-fought career in harness racing. Out of 289 lifetime starts, he’s had 30 wins, 26 seconds, and 11 thirds, bringing in $218,387 in lifetime earnings. He earned it the hard way, with very little stake money – $21,550 – to his credit, says Jackson Wittup, executive director of Harness Racing B.C. Spider M is the only 15-year-old to race in Canada in 2014 at an “A” track. The mandatory retirement age is 14 in most jurisdictions, according to Wittup, who points out Spider M is also only one of two 15-year-olds to race in North America this year: The other is a horse called Lemon Pepper, who raced in New York. Spider M’s fastest win was 1:54 at Fraser Downs. Despite his longevity in the field, he didn’t race as a two-yearold back in 2001, but has raced every year since.

Don’t sleep and miss this lively holiday Panto By Alex Browne Just in time for Christmas, the third local panto of the holiday season rolls into Surrey Arts Centre this week with a bushel-load of traditional, family-friendly, British-style fun. The show is Ellie King’s Sleeping Beauty, presented by the Royal Canadian Theatre Company, and – after some 25 years of panto productions – everyone knows the Langley-based producer/author’s winning formula. Colourful, extravagant costumes, cheery songs, a magical retelling of a familiar fairy tale, silliness, puns, slapstick comedy and hiss-worthy bad guys are mandatory for the show, which runs Dec. 19-28. There’s a radiant, tuneful principal girl – White Rock resident Melissa Paras as Princess Rosebud – the ‘sleeping beauty’ of the title for at least some of the running time. And – in the time-honoured fashion of all old-counBOAZ JOSEPH / BLACK PRESS try pantos – there is also a brave principal ‘boy’ who just happens to look good in fishnet stockings (An- Princess Rosebud (Melissa Paras, at left) cheers after getting her Christmas present die Francis as Prince Indigo), and a ludicrous Dame – the sled – in Ellie King’s Sleeping Beauty at the Surrey Arts Centre on Dec. 21.

(RCTC favourite Alan Cedargreen, once more donning drag as Rosebud’s nurse Bizzie Lizzie). Paras adds a nice touch of rebellious spirit as a princess “raised in cotton-wool” by overprotective parents, King said. But there is one big change to the show this year – for the first time King has handed off directing chores (though, typically, she’s been busy as hands-on producer of the all-in-the-family enterprise, up to and including painting the sets). Fortunately her choice for successor at the helm is her own son, James, a panto perennial known for finding his own ingenious, humourously twisted, variations on the panto Demon each year. “I was a little trepidatious – it’s not easy handing it over,” King confessed. “But I’m very pleased with James’ direction. He still asks for my ‘eye’ on things, and it’s looking very good and playing very well.” Sleeping Beauty runs until Dec. 28 at the Surrey Arts Centre main stage. (There will also be a brief follow-up run Jan. 2-3 at the ACT in Maple Ridge).

Happy Holidays!

COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS 33 IN LOVING MEMORY OF SHARON VANDENBRINK June 10, 1956 Christmas Eve 2013 Twas the night before Christmas, when suddenly all lay so still in our home. This was the first year the spirit of the holidays would not be celebrated or festively shown. Sharon’s favourite displays had always been arranged with so much care and special thought, with the creativity she’d express and beautiful decorations that she treasured. They were usually hand made, and seldom ever store bought. The ceilings bore hundreds of beautiful dangling paper snowflakes that she’d cut & shape for hours till her fingers bled. And as a single string was tied to each and every one, I’d tape exactly where she said. Our home was open to one and all, especially if homeless and needing a place to rest your feet. She always found clothes to keep your body warm, and fill your tummy with something to eat. Her tired little body had battled so much through the year. Pain and exhaustion had now won the fight, and as the Lord answered her precious silent prayers, He carried her home to a beautiful choir of angels, welcoming her to Heaven that night. She was a loving, free spirit, full of empathy and generosity and was the happiest when she was out helping others. She was my very best friend, companion & soulmate to Stevie. Cherished friend, daughter, sister, grandma and mother. Yes it has been such a long, lonely year for all those who so loved and miss her, as we forever in our hearts hold her memory close and tight. I know if she was right here with a smile, kiss and a tear, she’d shout “Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Goodnight” AMEN. We love and miss you Sharon; Steven Halverson, Sam Wagner, the beautiful Vandenbrink family, and all the lives she nurtured and touched, XO
