Timber: This unfortunate Pontiac Sunbird bore the brunt of a fallen 60-year-old maple tree Wednesday morning in South Burnaby. No one was hurt.

Granddaughter gets early morning surprise Alfie Lau

Danielle Meshen got quite the surprise when she went out to her red Pontiac Sunbird that was parked in the 5000 block of Keith Street in South Burnaby. An old maple tree in Froggers

Creek Ravine Park fell early Wednesday morning, crushing the car and leaving Burnaby parks crews a lot of work to clean up the area. “It was around 7 a.m. when I heard a huge crash,” said Dorothy Williamson, Meshen’s grandmother. “I thought my husband

(Don) had fallen in the bathroom, but then I looked outside and saw the tree on top of Danielle’s car.” The 19-year-old first-year arts student was visiting her grandparents on Tuesday, staying over for the night before her scheduled return to her Langley home

on Wednesday. “The one good thing is that nobody got hurt,” said Dorothy. Don was also surveying the damage, adding that it’s lucky the tree fell early in the morning. “This park gets a lot of walkers, so if it had fallen a couple hours later, there may have been

more people in the park,” said Don. Rick Diehl, works for the city’s parks department and was one of eight workers on the scene. “It looks like only the red car got damaged,” said Diehl. “It just narrowly missed a boat and Tree Page 4

Resident questions Chevron’s record

‘History is repeating itself,’ Judi Marshall says as remains from chemical leak in 2002 are still being dealt with Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

While Chevron and the B.C. Environment Ministry are characterizing the volume of gas and oil seeping from the North Burnaby refinery as relatively minor, a member of Chevron’s community advisory panel is questioning the scope of

the problem. “Last time they said it was nothing, it wasn’t. It was a huge contamination,” said Judi Marshall, a longtime panel member and Burnaby resident. Marshall was referring to a leak of methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) in 2002. MTBE is an additive used to oxygenate gasoline and reduce tailpipe emissions. There’s not enough data on MTBE to know if it’s cancerous for humans, but some U.S. states have restricted its use. Marshall, who toured the plant a few years ago, described it as old and rusty. MTBE at Chevron got into the groundwater because the tank it was in had a rusted

bottom and was leaking. Even though Chevron stopped using MTBE in October 2000, it had leached into the earth and was showing up in the groundwater. “History is repeating itself,” Marshall said. “We really hoped (by) getting involved … things would change. And here we are, we’re no further ahead.” Chevron is still dealing with the MTBE leak, nearly eight years later, but spokesperson Ray Lord said the levels are well below provincial standards. According to Lord, the volume of MTBE was never measured, but the levels of concentration were. In 2002, MTBE levels on the plant’s property were above provincial

standards, but no detectable levels were ever found off the property. Now, the onsite levels are below provincial levels and still no detectable levels have been found off property. Lord confirmed the MTBE situation was similar to what’s happening now: Material is seeping into the groundwater and being carried offsite. Lord said Chevron continues to monitor the property, groundwater and levels of MTBE, which are below provincial standards. “It’s being managed, it’s being dealt with,” Lord said. “We no longer process MTBE.”

Ardell Brophy: A woman of distinction


ongtime Burnaby resident Ardell Brophy has taken home a YWCA Women of Distinction Award in the arts, culture and design category. As founder of the Laff Riot Girls, Canada’s longest running female comedy group, she has taken countless women under her wing, giving them advice and the space to perform. She has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for various charities by volunteering as a stand-up comic. Ardell is an CONVERSATIONS elected vice-presiJennifer Moreau dent with United Steelworkers, and she works as a union representative with COPE 378, but she’s on medical leave because she has pulmonary fibrosis, a lifethreatening illness that’s left her hooked up to an oxygen tank. Despite her condition, she continues to fundraise. Reporter Jennifer Moreau sat down and asked her some questions. JM: Where did you grow up? AB: I grew up in Burnaby. I went to Holy Cross School, Alpha (Secondary) School, and I grew up at 5345 Parker St. … See this creek out here? (She motions to Beecher creek behind her home.) I used to catch crayfish in the creek here. How long have you been working as a comic? January of 1988 was my first time on stage. When you started, it was pretty much a male-dominated scene. What was it like working as a woman? Frustrating and very difficult to be told, ‘You’re funny, but we already have one funny female comic.’ That was the reality. It seemed to be that each club could only promote one, maybe two, but mostly one female comic at the time. What kinds of things would the guys say? You’re funny, but you’re hostile to men. I did the bit on why women prefer horses and I got told it was too hostile to men. The rules of the game were that guys, in those days, could swear. A woman could swear once, twice – you better not do it a third time. You came out as a lesbian on stage in Houston in the mid-’90s. What was that like? Empowering. I’d come out earlier about the fact I had an alcohol problem, and I did jokes about that. I was working with a lady comic,

Making ’em laugh: Ardell Brophy in her Burnaby home. The longtime local resident, who’s the founder of the Laff Riot Girls female comedy group, just won a Woman of Distinction Award from the YWCA.

Judy Carter, at the time, and she was out (of the closet), and I got introduced as: Now we have a straight female comic. And I said, ‘Hi my name’s Ardell. I’m a lipstick lesbian. That’s one with tits.’ And then I went on that way, it worked out well for me. You’ve mentored a lot of female comics in your time. What’s the most important thing you try to convey to them? Be true to yourself and be unique. The ones that stand out in my mind are the ones that have a story to tell. … One of the things I’m very, very proud of, a little friend who does comedy – she’s a dwarf, she’s three feet, six inches – Tanyalee Davis. She’s one of the reasons I’m glad I started the Laff Riot Girls, because she could not get off amateur night here. She’s gone on to come in second in the Seattle comedy competition, she headlines in England now, at the Edinburgh Festival (Fringe). … To see that kind of spunk and that determination – she is hilarious. I remem-

ber one night, they said, ‘No, she’s not strong enough to headline.’ I said, ‘Fine, I’ll book the club (New Westminster’s Lafflines Comedy Club), I’ll produce the show – the Little Ladies of Laugh – and she’ll headline my show.’ I just organized it myself, put my money where my mouth was, and we filled the room. She got a standing ovation. You’ve mentored a lot of comics with different levels of ability and people who have mental illnesses. How does comedy help people get over stigmas attached to that? I’m working with a group called Stand Up For Mental Health. … When you see these people come in, and they are afraid to say their name or to go up there or even to approach microphone, and then within three months, they are doing a sell-out show at the Stanley – the confidence! It’s not only helping them in doing stand-up comedy to get out and talk, but now they are thinking of doing other

things in their lives. … I’m very well aware of what it’s like to have a mental illness, and I was always considered slightly manic-depressive. You were diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. How serious is your case? It’s serious, it’s life-altering. I’m extremely lucky to still be able to do what I’m doing. I have that little (oxygen) machine that I can plug in, and I can go around and do things. I have a newer strain of the disease, and they don’t know how long the life expectancy is with this strain. … My lungs, each of them is over 70 per cent damaged. … I can’t do halfhour shows, I don’t have the stamina, but I can do 15-minute sets or more, so we can do benefits. We’re doing our big benefit, this is one I’m really proud of, in July it’s our fourth annual food bank benefit at Lafflines, July 22. Last year, through that benefit, we raised over $7,000.

Dear Editor:

Re: Not anti-tax – we’re anti-lies, Letters to the editor, Burnaby NOW, May 29, from Gordon Andru. Now that it is clearly understood HST was not in the B.C. Liberal 2009 election platform, I would like to explain why the B.C. government had to consider HST after the election. Mr. Gordon Andru is absolutely right that a “platform” is a list of things provided by a political party that they will do if elected. However, it is not an exclusive list of things for a government to do. When a government takes actions which are not in the platform, this does not constitute a “lie.” Governments have to deal with situations which

change weekly, if not daily, and not just every four years. An elected government works hard to implement the promises in the platform, but it is impractical to just do the things in the platform. The HST falls into a category where immediate action was needed to protect our competitiveness in Canada’s and the world’s economy. Right after the election, staff from the Ministry of Finance prepared different scenarios of the province’s finances and various options for the newly elected government to consider. Considering that Ontario’s economy is three times that of B.C.’s, if they are going to implement the HST and B.C. is not, we will lose competitiveness, investments and jobs.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR HST will mean more jobs continued from page 6

I understand that the shortage of time for public consultation has raised some concerns, but I can also understand that it is important government takes swift action to protect jobs and maintain the strength of our economy. The implementation of HST will start on July 1, 2010. I am sure most British Columbians are pleased KPMG predicted that Vancouver will be the most competitive among 41 major cities for doing business because of the move to the HST and corporate tax cuts. It means more job opportunities, economic development and revenue needed to maintain the services that British Columbians rely on. Richard T. Lee, MLA for Burnaby North

Chevron is doing its duty Dear Editor:

Re: Chevron needs to clean up its act, Letters to the editor, Burnaby NOW, June 2. In his letter, Peter Cech alleges that Chevron’s Burnaby refinery should be shut down. His comments merit response. Chevron is as concerned as both the public and regulatory agencies with protecting the local environment and is committed to safely conducting the required clean up following the detection of an oily substance in a gravel trench below the refinery. We are working diligently with regulators, environmental consultants and engineers to ensure that the appropriate resources and methods are being effec-

tively applied to the cleanup effort. It is important to remember that Chevron staff detected the problem and that all regulatory notifications were made immediately upon discovery of the material beyond our property. According to technical specialists, current estimates put the total amount of material observed at less than 50 litres – making a comparison with BP inappropriate. We are committed to determining the cause, fixing the problem and covering the costs of any cleanup. Ray Lord, manager, public and government affairs,

Chevron Canada Burnaby refinery

Refinery had issues before Dear Editor:

Interesting to note, this is not Chevron’s first spill/seepage, can’t anyone remember the MTBE fiasco of 2001 when two high school students found the toxic gas additive MTBE seeping out of the refinery’s perimeter? The fact that the MTBE contamination cleanup is still to this day ongoing makes you realize that the whole refinery site is a toxic wasteland. The estimate of how much oil/gas is there was made by the fact that less than a barrel is not reportable to the public. How do you estimate something that you didn’t even realize was happening? This was probably leaking for months, if not years. It’s time all levels of government got together and had a good overall look at the refinery. Let’s not have a repeat of the early 2000, when Chevron had several accidents. Judi Marshall, community member, Chevron

Oil: Gulf disaster speaks for itself continued from page 6

Mexico. As I wrote this column, BP, the company that brought you a new name for environmental catastrophe, was cautiously optimistic that the leak in its destroyed Gulf pipe, had finally been plugged. While BP insists that all its solutions are incredibly high tech, it’s hard to square that with ideas that are “plug it with mud” or “siphon it off with a big straw.” These are solutions from the mind of a five-

year-old. Only the location of the drill makes this a really difficult problem. Someday in my lifetime, we’ll hit peak oil, the point at which we’re finding less and less oil while using more. We know we’re going to have to wean ourselves off oil. But before the Gulf disaster, we didn’t think much about the hazards of the long, downhill slope after peak oil. If all our oil comes from difficult, inaccessible places, does that increase the likelihood of

more disasters like this one? I think it probably does. BP (and its competitors) would probably argue that they’re very careful, better technology, etc. But the Gulf disaster speaks for itself. How many more of these can we afford to sustain, just to keep oil reasonably priced for a few more years? Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance, a sister paper of the Burnaby NOW.

Murder trial in Chinese court

After eight years, the trial for the murder of Chinese student Amanda Wei Zhao, who was killed while living in Burnaby, is finally moving ahead. Ang Li, Zhao’s then-boyfriend, is accused of committing the murder in B.C. before fleeing to China. He has had his trial referred to Beijing’s 1st People Court, according to NDP MLAs Jenny Kwan and Mike Farnworth. The Zhao family has told the Kwan and Farnworth that the trial will be public, but

a date has not yet been set, they said. Li is expected to plead not guilty. Li was just 19 when he allegedly killed his girlfriend, Zhao, 21. He had reported her missing in October 2002 from the basement apartment they shared in Burnaby. Police found her body stuffed in a suitcase near Stave Lake in Mission weeks later. Three days after the body was found, Li fled to his native country. Li was arrested in Beijing in July 2009. – Canwest News Service


Chevron: Cleanup is still underway continued from page 1

The refinery is about 75 years old, but it is being constantly maintained and upgraded, Lord added. “The fact that something’s rusty does not mean it’s not well-maintained,” he said. Chevron first discovered the current leak of gas, diesel and crude oil on April 21, north of the refinery. About 25 metres of beach were covered with an oily sheen similar to what would be seen in a marina. The advisory panel was notified in an emailed letter on May 18. Chevron is still cleaning up the inlet and trying to collect the material via under-

ground wells outfitted with pumps before it seeps offsite. Lord pointed out that the material on the beach is surrounded by a boom and is not getting into the water as far as they know. They are still mopping up a few tablespoons of material a day, and the amount seems to be decreasing, he added. “It means whatever we’re doing to intercept the material uphill, the effectiveness is beginning to be seen,” he said. For more on the MTBE leak and to read Chevron’s letter to the advisory panel, see Jennifer Moreau’s blog, Community Conversations, at Click on the Opinion tab and select blogs.

Elections: Mayor backs longer term continued from page 5

It can take a year to get comfortable with a position on city council, which leaves one year to put forward motions and implement policies, as councillors are often focused on the next election campaign in their third year, Corrigan explained. Overall, the task force’s recommended changes are not extensive, he said. “Generally the recommendations were quite conservative,” Corrigan said. “Most of what’s happened in B.C.’s municipal elections has worked pretty well.” The six task force members included co-

chair Harry Nyce, president of the UBCM; co-chair Bill Bennett, minister of community and rural development; Barbara Steele, City of Surrey councillor and vice president of the UBCM; Mary Sjostrom, Mayor of Quesnel and vice president of the UBCM; Donna Barnett, MLA for CaribooChilcotin; and Douglas Horne, MLA for Coquitlam-Burke Mountain. The task force presented its recommendations to the union and the government on May 28, suggesting the changes be imposed in time for the 2011 civic elections.

Street hockey tourney at Metropolis at Metrotown Saturday and Sunday Andrew Fleming staff reporter

Long considered the poor second cousin to “real” hockey, ball hockey isn’t just for kids anymore. The game is gaining respectability as a sport in its own right with players leaving potholed, car-infested streets for various indoor leagues in and around Metro Vancouver. The sport’s easy accessibility has also resulted in what has quickly become Canada’s largest sports festival, the Hockey Night in Canada Play On! street hockey tournament, which will be taking place at Metropolis at Metrotown today and Sunday. “We’re on track to sell the event out,” said event organizer Carlo Diano of Beyond Marketing Group over the phone last week. “It’s going really well. Right now, we have 175 teams, with usually seven players a team, so it’s a considerable mass of people.” Burnaby is one of 13 cities across Canada hosting Play On! tournaments this summer.

While Richmond’s city council has voted to explore the idea of a public bike-sharing program that would link with other municipalities, they have not approached Burnaby city council as of yet. Richmond council voted unanimously on May 25 to consult with TransLink and other municipalities, including Burnaby, New Westminster, Vancouver and North Vancouver, about a public bike system. As of May 27, Burnaby councillors had not heard about the proposal. Coun. Nick Volkow, chair of the City of Burnaby’s traffic and transportation committee, said the concept might work “depending on whether there’s a take up by people in the cycling community.” “I think it’s a good idea,” Volkow said. “I’d be interested to see how it works.” It would be essential to avoid the pitfalls of past attempts, such as VanCity’s free bike share program in 2007, he said. The credit union released 48 free bikes out into the Vancouver community for nine weeks, asking each user to keep the bike for three weeks and then pass it on. At the end of the experiment 24 of the bikes were returned. However, another bike was returned in August 2009. Some people have a larcenous nature, Volkow pointed out, and free programs can fail because of this. “If you put something out for free, people take it for free,” he said. The majority of public bike systems are in regions that do not require bike helmets, and Mexico City repealed its helmet law when implementing such a system, according to the staff report presented to Richmond city council on May 25. B.C.’s helmet law could be a challenge, the report stated. The system would consist of 250 bike stations, with 3,800 bikes in total, about every 300 metres. This would accommodate five to 10 million trips per year. The bikes would be rentals, with an annual registration fee, and would charge for 30-minute increments. Registration would cost $2 per day, $10 per week, or $50 per year. The first 30 minutes of a ride would be free, and the fare for each subsequent 30-minute period would increase by $1.50. City staff estimated the capital costs for creating the network would be between $18.5 and $34.5 million, and that annual expenses would be $7 to $12 million. Staff projected the network would bring in $5 to $9 million annually, covering 70 per cent of operating costs.

Don’t miss this T great fest M

ark your calendars or you’ll miss one of Burnaby’s biggest annual fundraisers. The Wine, Food and Music Festival is on June 12, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $40, and partial proceeds go to the South Burnaby Neighbourhood House. The Rotary Club of Burnaby Metrotown and Metropolis at Metrotown are presenting the festival. I had the chance to attend a few years back, and I must say, it was quite an impressive spread. The festival is set up in a covered area next to the mall, by the SkyTrain station. Inside, there are booths with wine and food samples. The Burnaby Symphony Orchestra was playing, and in the casual setting, one could sit so close that the music completely enveloped the audience. They’ve switched up the entertainment a bit, and this year, a steel drum band will play. About 17 wineries and wine distributors have signed up so far, according to Antonia Beck from the South Burnaby Neighbourhood House. There is also a silent auction to help raise money for the cause. For tickets, call the neighbourhood house at 604-431-0400 or stop by the customer service desk at Metropolis at Metrotown.

A midsummer party

If Vikings and trolls are more your thing, the Scandinavian Midsummer Festival is coming up June 19 and 20. The yearly festival features Scandinavian-themed food, choirs, dance performances, cultural displays, a troll forest, carnival games, Icelandic horses (a breed of small, pony-like horses) a beer garden and more. One of the highlights is the Viking Village, where festivalgoers can see how Vikings lived, worked, played and traded. Inside the village, live the members of Reik Félag, a historical group focusing on the Viking Age from 1000 AD. There will also be a contest where men carry their wives in a race, and the team that finishes first gets the woman’s weight in Here Page 14

ony Neratini was the first one down the slide when the Eileen Dailly Leisure Pool first opened. He was 80 at the time. “I was spry back then,” Neratini says, laughing. Neratini, who turned 96 on May 17, has lived in North Burnaby his entire life. He was given the honour of being the first to try out the new corkscrew slide because he had visited the building site daily, telling city workers about the history of the location. When they started digging, city crews couldn’t understand why they weren’t hitting hardpan – a dense layer beneath the topsoil LIFE STORIES – Neratini says. Janaya Fuller-Evans “I told them, you won’t find hardpan there, that used to be a lake,” he says in an interview in his home. While it was not on city records, Neratini remembers swimming in the lake at the site, now 240 Willingdon Ave., as a boy. He told the city planners the lake had been filled with gravel long ago. Neratini grew up on Hastings Street when it was just a dirt road dotted with a few houses and businesses, surrounded by bush. Born at 4319 Hastings St. – now the site of the Vogue Hair Studio – Neratini worked for a butcher on the same street as a boy. His parents immigrated from Italy in 1911, he says, and his father worked for the municipality of Burnaby. He became a butcher, and met his wife at the shop where he worked. “I was working in a butcher shop up on Hastings Street (and Nanaimo Street) for $16 a week, working 60-hour weeks,” Neratini says. His wife, Rose Neratini, was one of seven children. Her father owned a print shop near the cenotaph on Hastings Street. One morning, while he was driving to work, a tram hit the driver’s side of his car and drove his pipe into his throat, killing him.

Crossing Canada

The Lougheed Mall Hearts and Motion walking club is walking across Canada this June, without actually leaving Burnaby.

The goal is to walk 5,591 kilometres, roughly the distance across the country, while raising $5,591 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The club’s campaign kicks off June 4 at Lougheed Town Centre, where walkers will chart their progress on a map in the mall’s centre court. They have until June 25 to reach their goal. To get involved, either by walking or donating, call the Heart and Stroke Foundation office at 604983-8492. Anyone visiting the mall can make a donation at the customer service desk.

Congrats to SFU

The City of Burnaby gave SFU an award for its sustainability ambassador program. The program promotes sustainability and raising awareness of environmental issues in the university’s community and aims to reduce SFU’s ecological footprint. “We are delighted to get this award,” said Candace Le Roy, the

university’s sustainability coordinator. “It really acknowledges the commitment to environmental excellence by SFU and its community members.” The program started in Burnaby and spread to the Surrey and Vancouver campuses and now has more than 50 sustainability ambassadors who raise awareness of environmental issues. They encourage employees and students to work and live in a more sustainable way.

School carnival

Seaforth Elementary is holding a carnival on Friday June 11 from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. There will be a barbecue, a silent auction, a cakewalk, a bouncy castle, mini-golf, games and prizes.

Obstacles: Jacqueline Twa, a space planner for B.C. Hydro, got some perspective on life with mobility challenges when she spent the day in a wheelchair to help raise awareness for the eighth annual Rick Hansen Wheels in Motion event.

Wheeling their way to new understanding staff reporter

Employees at B.C. Hydro’s Edmonds office spent the day in wheelchairs on Wednesday, May 26, to raise awareness for the eighth annual Rick Hansen Wheels in Motion event on June 13. But they didn’t realize how different the experience would be, or how much it would teach them. The event was intended to bring attention to safety and workplace accessibility issues, identify potential social barriers that may be faced by people with disabilities and illustrate workplace inclusion for people with disabilities. Jacqueline Twa, Maureen Daschuk, and Chris Weyell went about their daily routine from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m., while using wheelchairs. “It was really quite an eye-opener,” Daschuk said, “especially for me.” Daschuk is the general manager of operational support – allocating materials and vehicles when needed – and works in the warehouses and garages and travels to other B.C. Hydro facilities. Even connecting with fellow employees over coffee while in the wheelchair was different, Daschuk said. “It feels odd, being at a different level than other people,” she said. “I’m used to being able to look people in the eyes.” It was also hard to take her coffee back to her desk, Daschuk said. And at a buffet-style lunch meeting, she needed someone to help her get her meal. “What was really nice was people are really very

helpful,” she said. For Daschuk, the scariest prospect was realizing that someone in a wheelchair would need help escaping a fire in an office building such as hers. “You have to give up a certain sense of complete control,” she said. Daschuk is passionate about having an inclusive workplace, she said, and the experience made her even more aware. “I have a real desire, a lifelong passion, about creating a diverse workplace,” she said. “It was a great opportunity for me to go beyond just talking.” Promoting and supporting the Rick Hansen Wheels in Motion program was also important to Daschuk. “How could you not want to support Rick Hansen?” she said. “He’s a Canadian hero.” For Twa, manager of space planning, the experience gave her a new perspective on how someone in a wheelchair would have to navigate the spaces she creates. “It makes you look at everything differently.” Twa pointed out how, when planning office space use in the past, she might

have narrowed a doorway to add room. “I can already see four or five entrances here that we’re going to have to alter,” she said. Twa was also surprised by how hard it was to do simple tasks and how physically demanding life in a wheelchair would be. At lunch, she was in the cafeteria, waiting to get a sandwich, but the employee preparing sandwiches could not see her. “Things as simple as that are difficult (in a chair),” said Twa. “It was so impossible in the washrooms.” The primary issue with the washroom facilities was the multiple doors, she explained. The three Edmonds participants – B.C. Hydro had employees participating throughout the province – are talking to the property group at B.C. Hydro about the issues they noticed while in their wheelchairs. B.C. Hydro has been a provincial partner with Wheels in Motion for four years. Burnaby does not have a registered Wheels in Motion event for June 13, but there is an event in Vancouver. See

I blogged about this some time ago, but I thought I should (belatedly) bring it to the attention of the print world too. It’s always nice to see success with a Burnaby connection, and that’s just what I found when I was perusing the list of nominees for the annual Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards. The Jessies honour the best in Vancouver theatre in a whole host of categories encompassing both large and small productions. Among the nominees this year are a couple of Burnaby connections. First off is Todd Talbot, the former Burnaby resident who was profiled in the Burnaby NOW on April 10. He’s among the cast of Carousel Theatre’s A Year With Frog and Toad – along-

side Darren Burkett, Janet Gigliotti, Kaylee Harwood and Allan Zinyk – nominated in the Outstanding Performance/ Theatre for Young Audiences category. It was also nice to see Burnaby’s Patrick Street Productions up for a nomination for its production of Bat Boy: The Musical. Amir Ofek took the nomination for Outstanding Costume Design – Small Theatre for his work on the production. The awards will be handed out at a gala ceremony on June 21. See for the whole list of nominees – and let me know if you know of any other Burnaby connections. I don’t want to miss out on congratulating our local talent. Do you have an item for Lively City?

Plants can crack concrete ly has flowers and would be leafing out. When I scraped the branches they were green under the bark. How can we bring it back to life? Doris, by e-mail

Anne Marrison

Question: I have ferns volunteering by the concrete of the house. Do you think they will cause problems to the concrete? Mary, by e-mail Answer: If they’re volunteering in cracks in concrete, yes, they can cause trouble. Plants create enormous, slow pressure that makes cracks widen. If the plants remain a long time and get very large, the cracks can expand so much they make more cracks where more plants can volunteer – worsening the problem. But these ferns are in a garden bed next to concrete, they’ll expand unhindered in three directions and will be fine. ◆ Question: We have a 10- to 15-yearold wisteria at the base of a metal clothesline pole. It has surrounded the pole and sends out branches that follow the clothesline so we have to trim it. By now it normal-

Answer: Wisterias are noted for vigour and longevity. It’s very unusual to have one that has failed to flower and has no leaves either. But the time for leafing and flowering depends on temperature – and we have had several weeks of weather five or six degrees colder than normal. It’s very likely you’ll get flowers as soon as warmer weather arrives. If your wisteria is on a north slope, or in part shade, normal flowering/ leafing could be a tad later than wisterias in warmer, sunnier spots. Incorrect pruning can reduce the number of flowers but shouldn’t stop wisteria from leafing out. ◆ Question: I have a 25-year-old jade plant in a large terra cotta pot. The smaller branches are shrivelling and falling off. The soil is very hard. I think my jade needs replanting. Do I have to break the pot? Would it be easier to break some branches and restart

Dayna Walker, Vancouver

Answer: By dropping branches, your jade plant is telling you it’s ready to be propagated. This is one of the ways many succulent plants spread. Your easiest route is starting another jade plant from a branch. If you repotted it, most of the branches would fall off. You could replace it in the same pot if you rootpruned it, but a small, new re-rooted branch would be much shapelier and less work. I don’t think you’d need to break the pot, but compacted soil makes the plant hard to dislodge. It might loosen more easily if you run a long, thin knife around the inside of the pot. I repotted a large jade plant once. The roots were very fine and so shallow they didn’t penetrate the lower half of the pot. Many desert plants have shallow roots that spread over a large area to gather as much rainfall as possible. Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send yours to amarrison@

Persuading your child to write over the summer break may be easier if you help them identify fun and engaging topics. Suggest timely subjects. • For example, Canada Day on July 1st is a good opportunity for your children to explore their own patriotism. • Ask them if they know what patriotism is, and what it means to them. Encourage your children by helping them with some research about their country, its history, people and places. to page 23 ...

Help your children write their patriotic paragraphs/essays by giving them topic ideas, such as: • I am proud to be Canadian because … • On July 1st, my family and I usually … • If someone asked me what my country means to me, I would say … Sylvan Tips on Writing • Good writing takes time. Spend time organizing your ideas and thinking about what you really want to say in your paragraph/essay. • Use the Internet or library to research your topic. • Prepare an outline before you begin to write. • Use transition words – such as“after,”“although,”

“before,” “however” and “therefore” to help your ideas flow together. • Be willing to revise. Change your sentences around, add material that lends to your writing and delete material that doesn’t work. • Avoid clichés, slang and jargon. • Always keep a dictionary handy to help with spelling. • Use a thesaurus to help you think of a new way to say something. • Ask someone else to edit your work.

our family and others who see you often have stable images of who you are. They know how you dress, how you talk and how you act. They could predict how you would react in a variety of situations. They think they know you well. You might, too. But what if you acted out of character? If you are known as an easygoing, perhaps even passive person, what would they think if you stood your ground and spoke up when someone was pushing you around? If you are seen as impatient and explosive, what if you started reflecting before acting and gave an uncharacteristically measured response? The news tells us of previously quiet people going postal and high school loners lashing out against their peers. Later, we learn of their underlying psychopathology and rage. Sometimes, we hear of individuals acting out of character in positive ways – ex-cons renouncing their previous careers and lifestyles and making positive contributions to society. Who are the real people? The characters others assumed them to be, or the selves acting out? And if you acted out or exploded out of character, does this reflect the real you – your hidden demons or strengths, sides of yourself long repressed, your unresolved conflicts, desires or frustrations? Is the self that acts out the real you or another you? When children act out, their actions do not necessarily reflect their real selves. In fact, there may be no reflection at all. They may be overwhelmed with emotion – anger, frustra-

tial for happiness. This may mean letting go of the old stories of past resentments and suffering, of our own mistakes and the harm caused by others. We must each take up the calling to reflect, recreate and rediscover our true selves. As with the act of writing fiction, the creation of your real life is an act of discovery. You must be authentic – true to yourself, your values and your emotions. To break out is to express yourself; you may not have chosen the song or the key, but as with jazz, you can still improvise and play the music as only you could. To break out is to sound your voice, loud and clear, and to tell your own story. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician. His Internet radio show can be heard on www.positiveworldradionet

tion or sadness. If these feelings were addressed before reaching their boiling points, their responses would be more appropriate. When adults are burnt out with work or situational stress, when their relationships are conflicted, or when they are clinically depressed, they can explode in unpredictable ways. The response of acting out might not be reflective of the immediate situation. The response itself may simply be a symptom of deeper underlying challenges. Sometimes, acting out can be a wake-up call or a meditation gong. When we find ourselves doing things we may not normally have chosen, we may awaken to feelings and deep psychosocial issues previously out of our conscious awareness. If your life is not what you want it to be, or if the life you live does not engage you or reflect the best you can be, you have a choice. You can continue to live a life of quiet desperation and risk exploding and acting out in unpredictable, socially inconvenient ways. Or you can acknowledge your double life – the you that you and the world are accustomed to, and the complete individual hidden from view, aching to be expressed and to feel fulfilled. I have written about our life stories and how we are all co-authors of these stories. The tale we tell ourselves day after day may empower or limit our hearts and our minds. They can restrict our potential or they can inspire us. We must continually review, revise and rewrite our own stories. Great writers must be willing to destroy an old draft and to throw away a favourite scene when it is clear that it doesn’t work. We too have to give up and let go of anything that holds us back from growing and achieving our emotional potentials and our poten-

Audi A3 TDI is a green performance machine David Chao and Bob McHugh

NOW contributors

With the prestigious Green Car of the Year Award securely tucked under its seatbelt, the 2010 Audi A3 TDI proves that a performance-minded luxury car can also be an eco-friendly car – and that’s not a “mutually exclusive concept.” Its 2.0-litre “clean diesel” engine has a combined (city/ highway) average fuel economy rating of 5.8 litre/100 km. That’s especially significant for buyers in some provinces (such as buyers in B.C.), because there are rebates available. In B.C., the A3 TDI qualifies for an instant $1,500 point-of-sale rebate from its provincial sales tax. This B.C. tax incentive for high-efficiency vehicles, however, will disappear at the end of June when the PST is scheduled to be replaced by the HST. TDI is a new addition to the A3 line for the 2010 model year and it comes in both base and Premium trim levels. A compact yet premium five-door hatchback, the A3 possesses excellent driving dynamics and is also available with a 2.0-litre direct-injection

gasoline engine with a Quattro (all-wheel-drive) drivetrain option. A 3.2-litre V6 model has been discontinued. A six-speed manual transmission is available with the gasoline engine, but the optional six-speed automatic gearbox (S-Tronic) is the only transmission offered with the diesel engine. In addition, the TDI only comes as a front-drive model – there’s no Quattro version. Even a base A3 ($33,300) comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, fog lamps, cruise control, heated mirrors, keyless entry, heated washer nozzles, variable intermittent wipers, heated leather seats, 60/40 split-folding rear seat and a CD/MP3 stereo with auxiliary input. The similarly equipped base TDI is $35,300. A move up to Premium (TDI – $38,000) adds rain-and speedsensitive wipers, auto-dimming exterior and interior mirrors, Bluetooth connectivity, a panoramic sunroof, a power driver’s seat, a multi-function four-spoke leather-wrapped wheel, and interior lighting package.

Green luxury: Audi’s A3 TDI is a performance-minded luxury car that’s also eco-friendly. Sport Package ($2,900). This package adds 18-inch wheels and performance tires, sport seats, a steering wheel with a dual paddle shift feature, a rear roof spoiler, door sill inlays and S style bumpers front and rear.

The Looks

The fifth-door of its fastback design adds utility and conve-

nience and makes the most of its compact dimensions. It’s an attractive mix of functionality and clean, finely crafted styling lines that exude understated elegance. A wide-mouth chrometrimmed grille gives the A3 that

unmistakably Audi look from a front view. The string of LED daytime running lights inside the headlamp clusters, which are arced in what appears to be a resolute frown, also add to its Audi-distinctiveness.

The Inside

Audi’s ability to create an upscale interior ambience is the envy of the rest of the auto industry. A combination of intelligent design, functionality and comfort is accentuated by a high level of craftsmanship. The driving position has a terrific range of seat and steering-wheel adjustments. Even very tall drivers should find leg room more than adequate, but the panoramic sunroof (standard on the Premium edition) reduces headroom space. An adjustable power lumbar on the driver’s seat that also allowed vertical placement was a particularly nice comfort feature. The back seats are more supportive than you generally find, although here again, taller passengers may find a headroom issue due to the sunroof and the slope on the roof. The rear seatbacks flip down easily and are split 60/40, but they do not extend a perfectly flat cargo floor.


Rated a “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, based on its crash test results, the A3 provides a comprehensive network of safety features designed to protect occupants.

Electronic Stability Control is standard and rear seat side airbags are an option.

The Drive

The TDI engine is livelier than its horsepower number (140) and acceleration time (about nine seconds to 100 km/hour) indicate. It’s quick off the mark from a standing start, and when you adapt to the engine’s slower power build up and maximum rev range (4,500 rpm), faster cornering and passing of other vehicles can be done with ease. Of course, with 236 lb.-ft. of torque at your disposal, the TDI’s smooth and easy power is most evident when a steep grade presents itself. The pulling power of this small diesel engine is phenomenal and if you live in a hilly or mountainous area it would sure make driving a lot more pleasant. The TDI’s rated highway fuel economy is an amazing 4.6 litres/100 km. That’s better fuel economy than a Toyota Yaris or even the current Smart Car. And with a full 55-litre fuel tank the A3 TDI could, in theory anyway, travel more than 1,000 (highway) kilometres between fill-ups. The A3’s suspension provides a very nice blend of sporty handling and refined ride quality. It has that well-planted, secure feel on the road that’s typical of good European sport sedans.

The Score

The Audi A3 TDI is a quality luxury car in a smaller package that is fun to drive and offers outstanding fuel efficiency.

MOTORING Some tips for avoiding the $2,000 distributor clip CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: It was a rainy afternoon. I had driven a couple of miles when the car stalled. I opened the hood and stared at the engine. After 15 minutes and a few more tries, the engine started and I limped home. It was really wet a few days ago, and again the car just would not start. I decide to pop the distributor cap and have a look. In the process, the clip at the back of the distributor broke off. Of course, the friendly folks at my VW dealership say the clip is part of the distributor itself, not sold separately. Sigh. So I got another distributor on eBay, and went out to remove my old one. No luck. It’s frozen to the block and won’t budge. So far, I have tried repeated applications of PB


Blaster and Liquid Wrench. I have tried prying it out with a crowbar. I got the engine running and let it run for a while, hoping the heat from the engine might help the goop work. I also tried tapping it with a hammer, and when I couldn’t get a decent swing due to tight quarters, I moved up to an air chisel and tried to rotate the base of the distributor with that. It is still stuck solid. Any suggestions for me? – Jim RAY: One option is to simply forget about the broken clip and glue a new distributor cap to the base of the old distributor. TOM: What we do is coat the bottom edge of the cap with a silicone adhesive, then use the remaining clip and a couple of wire ties to secure it. And once that adhesive sets, the distributor cap won’t go anywhere. RAY: If it’s already too late for that (I’m guessing it is), the next thing to try is, with the cap off the distributor and the remaining “good” clip folded out of the way, grabbing the distributor


with an oil-filter wrench. TOM: If that doesn’t work, then you start double-teaming it. Engage a friend, and have him apply the oil-filter wrench while you work the air chisel. The air chisel will also create vibrations, which may allow the penetrant (the PB Blaster or Liquid Wrench) to work its way in. RAY: If all that fails, you can attack it from underneath. If you get the car up on ramps, from underneath the car, you can apply the air chisel to the bottom of the distributor. That may help work it loose. TOM: But remember, you’re air-chiselling right near the engine block, and you don’t want to accidentally get excited that you sense movement, and then realize you’ve just chiselled off a piece of the block! RAY: Right. That’ll result in what we call a “$2,000 distributor clip.” TOM: So fight with it, but judiciously. And when you get to the point where you’re stringing more than four curse words in a row

before you get to the word “distributor,” that’s the

time to take it to a professional. Good luck.

Bell to Toll on long junior career Two-sport D-man entering ninth straight Jr. season Tom Berridge

sports editor

After five seasons in the Western Hockey League and now entering his fourth and final junior A lacrosse season, Jarrett Toll is eager to see how it will all end. Toll captained the TriCity Americans to the Western conference final this season, eventually losing the WHL major junior hockey championship in a five-game series to the Calgary Hitmen last month. Toll, who captained the New Westminster Salmonbellies to the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League playoff final last year, will again be wearing the C for the junior A box club in his ninth season playing elite junior sports. “I am very fortunate to have had a career like this. I count my blessings,” said the right-handed hockey defender and transition lacrosse player. “I’ve been able to play for two great organizations in two of the best sports. I wouldn’t change my life for anything.” In five seasons with TriCity, the stay-at-home Dman scored 25 goals and 79 assists in league and playoff hockey, while fashioning a career plus-91. On the hardwood floor of Queen’s Park Arena, the 21-year-old Toll has tallied 30 goals and 31 assists to

Team leader: Jarrett Toll led Tri-City Americans to the recent Western Hockey League final. He will also captain the New Westminster Salmonbellies to what he hopes will be a Minto Cup. date in his B.C. junior A career. He says playing both of Canada’s summer and winter national sports at a high level has taught him volumes. “The minute we show up and think we have it won, we’re going to be destroyed,” Toll said. And the 5-11, 190pound defender brings that honesty and intensity

with every shift. In the WHL, the Americans entered the Christmas break with a 12-point lead in the division, but gave up the lead at times before giving up home-ice advantage in the conference final. “The end of the regular season wasn’t very good, but our playoff run was a great experience. It was too bad we couldn’t pull

it out,” Toll added. “I’m done with my junior hockey career. It still hasn’t sunk in yet, ... But we have a great team here. We have a lot of potential, but we have to use it and take advantage of the opportunity.” Although undrafted into pro hockey, Toll has not given up on any career ambitions. If he fails to catch on

with a minor pro organization, Toll says his next option would be to go to a Canadian university on a hockey scholarship. He says the slight of not having his name called at the NHL draft has moulded him, in part, to the player he has now become. “I work off that,” he said. “I feed off of it and Captain Page 46

Laker pick named No. 1 field player in NCAA Tom Berridge sports editor

The top draft pick in the Western Lacrosse Association this season is also No. 1 in the eyes of the U.S. Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association. Stony Brook University junior midfielder Kevin Crowley was named the USILA’s most outstanding Division I player of the year on May 28. Crowley, the No. 1 overall draft pick of the Western Lacrosse Association Burnaby Lakers, was in Baltimore, Maryland this weekend to receive the Lt. Raymond J. Enners Award as the NCAA’s top player. Crowley had one of the best seasons ever by a Stony Brook

varsity lacrosse player, posting a single-season record 51 goals and 26 assists in 17 games. The 6-4 New Westminster product is the only player in school history in the top five in both goals and assists, with 101 tallies and 75 helpers, respectively. He is currently just 26 points shy of the school’s all-time record of 201 points. “It’s a huge honour to be chosen for the Enners Award,” said Crowley in Stony Brook press release. “I wouldn’t be named to this award if it weren’t for my teammates making great plays around me. 2010 was a great season. The team, coaches, administration and Stony Brook community have been awesome and we’re looking forward to a great

2011.” Crowley is just the fourth junior since 1995 to earn the Enners Award. Just the day before, Crowley was named to the association’s All-American team, the first-ever first team selection for a Stony Brook player. Junior Stony Brook teammate Jordan McBride was also named an All-American to the third team. McBride, an honourable mention All-American in his first two seasons at Stony Broook, scored 48 goals this season, a career best. He also became the program’s all-time leading goal scorer and is the first player in school history to score at least 40 goals goals in three consecutive seasons.

Stony Brook finished the season with a record of 13-4, advancing to the NCAA national Div. 1 quarter-finals for the first time in school history. The Seawolves won nine straight games en route to a sixth overall ranking in the nation, the highest ever in program history. Earlier this month, Crowley was also named the unanimous choice as America East player of the year and is a finalist for the Tewaaraton Award, which is handed out to the most outstanding player in Div. 1 lacrosse each season. That winner of the Tewaaraton Award will be named in a ceremony at the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian on Thursday (after NOW deadlines).

Dave Ellenwood was a proud father last week. Burnaby’s director of parks, recreation and cultural services watched his Grade 9 daughter Georgia win the girls’ heptathlon at the B.C. Secondary School multi-events final May 29. At just 14 years of age, Georgia is one of the youngest-ever winners of the two-day, seven-event final at the Jane and Gerry Swan Track in Abbotsford. Burnaby Central’s Angela Anoliefoh won her first of two heptathlons in 1996 as a bantam-aged competitor. The Langley Secondary teen was on pace for a run at Kelly Ann Kempf’s 1985 record of 5,262 after an opening day total of 2,903 points in the first four events. Ellenwood won three of the four events on May 28, taking first place in the 100-metre hurdles in 15.27 seconds, winning the high jump with a leap of 1.71m and then first in the 200m, clocking a 26.30 time. She also took top spot with a 5.40m long jump and in the final 800m race in a time of 2:30.96. Georgia also placed fifth in the shot put and sixth in the javelin, beating out last year’s runner-up from Oak Bay, Zarria Storm, by more than 100 points. In qualifying for the B.C. high school track and field meet at Swangard Stadium today, Ellenwood’s oldest son, 17-year-old Stuart, clocked the fastest time in the boys’ 400m with a 49.64 run. Althought reluctant to take credit for his offspring’s obvious talents, Dave, a two-time AllAmerican while attending Simon Fraser University, also shared in a national NAIA soccer title as a fullback with the Clan in 1981. “She (Georgia) makes me very proud, she does and my son does, too,” said Ellenwood, who also has a younger 12-year-old son ready to make his mark. “He can really rip it up, too,” Ellenwood added.

Knights run away with third B.C. AA golf title Tom Berridge

The St. Thomas More Knights sure got cracking at the B.C. Fresh Egg AA high school golf championships. The Knights fashioned a six-over-par 582 total to win the provincial banner for a third consecutive time, crushing the competition with a 44stroke victory over runner-up Collingwood at the Squamish Valley Golf and Country Club Tuesday. Michael Belle led the Knights with back-to-back one-under-par 71s, finishing second overall behind boys’ champion Matthew Cavelti of Collingwood, who shot a four-under 140. Belle, a Grade 12 senior, had four birdies on the opening day and five in the second round to finish with a 142 total on the 6,218yard Squamish course. It was Belle’s third team title with the Knights. Alan Tolusso placed third overall with a 144 total, including a oneunder-par round on the

school title. But last year, final day. Tolusso, a Grade 9 STM the Burnaby independent student, also posted a total blew away the competition of nine birdies in the com- by more than 20 strokes.

You couldn’t ask for more diverse beginnings, but both players’ paths led to the Coquitlam Adanacs’ crease. New Jersey native Ginny Capicchioni and Burnaby intermediate Dylan Kuppan are now members of an elite group – as goaltenders in the Western Lacrosse Association. The pair were called into duty on the weekend when the senior A Adanacs’ backup goalie dilemma forced their hand – and resulted in Kuppan’s debut. Although Coquitlam dropped both games, Saturday 13-11 to Langley, and Sunday 11-8 to Maple Ridge, the particulars aren’t nearly as interesting as the details on the team’s netminding substitutes. Capicchioni became the first woman to dress for a Western Lacrosse Association contest, nearly seven years after she became the first woman to play in the NLL. Kuppan, meanwhile, at 17, ranks right up there as one of the youngest. And perhaps the most fearless. “I got a bit excited and then I was nervous,” Kuppan said about being asked to be a last-minute substitute in Maple Ridge. “It was a good game and things were going fine, then it all went the other way.” A member of the intermediate A Burnaby Lakers, Kuppan was called to duty when Capicchioni had returned home for a few days and scheduled backup Burnaby junior Brodie

Digging it: Burnaby North’s Brian Shim keeps

the ball alive in a 3-0 win over Rockridge at the Vancouver & District bantam boys’ volleyball championships MacDonald was injured a day earlier. The 17-year-old’s baptism into senior A came a handful of years earlier than anticipated, but was forced when Brandon Atherton was tossed from the game at 14:37 of the second period after leaving his crease during a mêlée. At five-foot-nine and 160-pounds, Kuppan has been tested mightily at the intermediate level, facing 50-60 shots a game. But it’s a tremendous jump to the senior level against players from the pro ranks. “I was a bit nervous seeing how fast and how big (the players) are, but after the first few shots it was just like any other game,” he said. “The shots were the same, just a lot harder.” In his 25 minutes of action, Kuppan turned aside 15 of 20 shots, including a huge stick save late in

the second period. Adanacs coach Neil Doddridge said there was some concern when Atherton was thrown out, but there was none after the last-minute callup stared down a couple of shooters. “On the bench I remember turning to him and thinking to myself, ‘Boy, he’s really young looking.’ But he really did a good job for us,” Doddridge said. Kuppan said he was pretty sore the next day in PE class, and had a hard time convincing some of his Terry Fox classmates about how he spent Sunday evening. “They didn’t believe me at first... When I play intermediate, I’m more flatfooted. In (WLA) they move the ball so quickly so I had to be on the front of my feet more and I’m going to try that (in intermediate).”

Catch a great job.

Let’s face it –there are high expectations in our society regarding our performance, professionalism, output and activities. It seems I’m supposed to be a highoutput, multi-tasking entrepreneurial networker, who’s up-to-date on the latest advances in technology and trends in my sector, while also managing my many Gregg Taylor relationships and arriving at meetings on time. Whew! The reality is that I don’t do everything equally well. It seems that the harshest judge of my abilities or missing abilities is the judge in my head. I want to do everything well, but I’m not ‘good’ at everything. We humans are miraculous beings with amazing capabilities. But the phrase “I’m only human” also applies, referring to the humbleness that comes from having, and admitting limitations. Like the flip side of a coin, or the Ying to the Yang, I have weaknesses that work in tandem with my strengths. My ability to retain and focus on details is also a weakness when I lose sight of the big picture. My entrepreneurial ability to see opportunities and create business ideas can also result in a fragmented business as I try to tackle too many projects at once. I also have weaknesses that stand on their own like my lack of artistic drawing skills or my inability to do complex math calculations. In his book titled Go Put Your Strengths to Work, Marcus Buckingham makes the bold assertion that we should stop worrying about and focusing on our weaknesses. Instead he contends that we should spend our efforts and energy building on our strengths. Sure, some weaknesses can be overcome through learning or practice. Buckingham asks the question, why spend all our energy identifying, thinking about, and working on our weak points, when we can experience far greater and faster results building on our natural gifts and strengths? Imagine living day to day immersed in personal and work activities that play to your strengths rather than those that highlight your weaknesses. If you would like to learn more about your strengths call 604-434-1177 to sign up for an information session about the Transitions program, our no-fee (government funded) three-week career exploration program, available to anyone who is unemployed, under-employed and eligible to work in Canada.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections

Taurus April 20-May 20: A major inspiration or eye-opener might occur the first few days – a secret wish could come true, or a financial step bring you unexpected security! Lie low Sunday/Monday – your energy needs re-charging. Now to late July, you’ll bring a new determination and intensity to romantic, creative and sports zones. The friction that might have marked your domestic sphere since last October now fades. Peace returns! Your energy and charisma rise Tuesday to Thursday – you attract others, and your luck surges. Start things, get things done. Chase money – diplomatically! – Thursday eve to Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: An unexpected meeting, idea, or communication during the first half of this week could raise your hopes sky-high – and signal a new friendship, a light love affair, or a wish coming true! One warning: take care that secrets do not interfere with your reputation, standing or ambitions, especially mid-week. Rest, lie low Tuesday to Thursday noon. Contemplate, plan. Your energy and magnetism soar Thursday eve to Saturday – but avoid unintended sharp words. Now to late July, guard against domestic friction – a wish could come true in real estate. Renovations, construction will succeed.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Lie low, contemplate, conserve energy for the next two weeks. Fulfil obligations, handle governmental and administrative tasks, and complete neglected tasks in any area. Spend time with yourself, re-connect spiritually, be charitable. Contemplate and plan. Be ambitious early week – an unexpected event or influence could bring sudden good career or business luck for the next three months! Perhaps related, the last seven months of “wild ride” in money now dissolves, leaving you financially steadier. For the next two months, success will depend on your ability to communicate and travel. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your popularity, optimism and happiness continue to brighten, especially Thursday to Saturday! A wish (or many little wishes) can come true over the next two weeks. Entertainment, light romance, flirtations and social invitations pop up here and there. A lucky, unexpected event could occur in your legal, travel, educational, cultural or publishing sphere. This happens almost in the same moment (day, week) as you give up your anger about something in these same areas. For the next two months, more money will flow to you – make sure it doesn’t flow through you. A Gemini is complex! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Be ambitious this week and next. For the last seven months, financial, lifestyle and sexual matters have held you back, perhaps disconcerted, even frightened you. This ends – for the two months ahead you take these matters in hand, control, enliven, push and solve them. Your sexual magnetism soars for seven weeks. A change, an event or new atmosphere enters early week; it “kicks off” a summer of luck in all these areas: sex, intimacy, finances, investments, lifestyle changes, research and your connections to other people’s money. Many developments this week: avoid deception, anger!

June 6 - 12

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Pursue legal, educational, travel, cultural and love objectives this week and next. They enliven and challenge, succeed and frustrate this week. A Gemini (or Virgo) might be involved. Keep an even keel. If your urge to wed and your urge to partner are not represented by the same person, stop. Early week brings an unexpected change, a lucky, unpredictable, fresh exhilaration in love, partnership, contractual and relocation zones, now to early September. This might be “it,” Libra, or it might merely be a precursor of a similar, huge trend in 2011. Prepare for excitement!

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Tackle chores this week and next. You might feel a little frustrated or “neglected by the universe” because opportunities are just not coming your way. This is a good thing, for the opportunities that face you this month and next are traps in disguise. Be patient! Avoid all legal hassles June/July. Exceptions: you might sign legal papers to buy or sell real estate, to protect a child, for a retirement plan, etc. – fine. This whole area (security, kids, real estate, etc.) “wakes up” as new, enlivening, unpredictable, mostly lucky events enter now to September. Midweek’s mellow.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Many secrets will be revealed this week and next (mostly this week) – be a detective. Be silent, watch and listen. Your sexual, intimate urges rise to the surface: lust won’t be a stranger! (But he/she might be.) The anger, impatience and temperamental relations with higherups that have marked your career scene since last October now disappear.A new, unpredictable, friendly, monetarily lucky influence enters your work sphere, now to September. At the same time, a job could end. You’ll socialize with co-workers, June/July. Work hard Sunday/Monday. Beware deception mid-week.

Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Love, romance, creative urges, pleasure, beauty, charming kids, speculation, sports fill the two weeks ahead. You could fall in love, especially late this week! But avoid self-deception (and deceiving others) – and realize the one who makes your heart flip and the one you lust after might not be the same person. If so, stop, think before proceeding. The next two months could be very sexual; an affair is possible. Possible, too, that you’ll just talk about it. Secrets are shared – and will “out.” A new, lucky and sociable influence fills June to September. Anger from others ends!

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Partnerships, relationships, opportunities, challenges from others, relocation themes, negotiations, contracts, marriage and/or divorce – these concerns fill the two weeks ahead. The road will be uneven – rocky, frustrating, exhilarating, successful, joyful, maddening, etc. For success, avoid two “traps” 1) deception or being too mistrusting, especially around Tuesday/ Wednesday; 2) anger or sharp words, especially around Thursday/Friday. Everything is possible, even true love! Now to September, romance, creativity “wake up” luckily! All June/July, be diplomatic with temperamental bosses.

Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Focus on endings and new beginnings, on nurturing, home, kids, real estate, retirement, security, Mother Nature, for two weeks. You might end an association, especially Thursday to Saturday. If you don’t do it in anger, it’s justified. An unpredictable, fresh, lucky, odd influence enters your money and earnings sphere now to early September – this could bring an unexpected and freeing event, or that event might come in 2011, first half. Be flexible, opportunistic. A long period of hard work eases up now. All June/July, relationships will intensify – expect heat, anger and attraction! • Reading: 416-686-5014

Car racer earns first podium of the season Tom Berridge sports editor


“When we’re not here, we have to keep pushing hard, keep our heads down. … We had the pace we haven’t had”

North Burnaby’s Michael Valiante made it to the podium for the first time this season with Michael Shanks Racing. The 30-year-old professional race car driver drove the No. 6 Daytona Prototype Ford Riley to third place at the Memorial Day Classic at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Connecticut May 31. Valiante, who co-drives the Shanks entry with Brian Frisselle

of Aspen, Colorado, finished just under eight seconds behind the SunTrust Racing Ford and three ticks behind the runner-up BMW entry from Starworks Motorsports in the 174-lap race. Last year, Valiante visited the podium on two occasions in his first season with the Shanks racing team in the Grand American road racing series. “Last year we had the speed, but this time we have the experience, but we didn’t have the speed,” Valiante said in a long-distance

call from Connecticut. “We’re a top-rated team. We have the whole package. We have the potential and should be on the podium.” But in five series races to date, Lime Rock is the first stop to provide a breakthrough. “When we’re not there, we have to keep pushing hard, keep our heads down. We have an experienced staff and they’re working hard. (At Lime Rock) we had the pace we haven’t had,” Valiante said. Frisselle got the car off to a

strong start, staying with the lead pack of four until handing the car off to Valiante on the second pit stop. Valiante then brought the car home in third place with a charge at the finish. “It was a crazy race,” said Valiante in a Shanks press release. ... There were lots of close calls and some moments where I could have pushed harder, but I just wanted to bring it home.” The next race for Valiante is this week in Watkins Glen, New York.

Burnaby Judokas medal at nats

Scott McGrandle settled for a silver medal at the senior judo national championships in Jonquiere, Quebec last month. McGrandle was beaten by ippon by Antoine ValoisFortier of Quebec in the final of the men’s under-81 kilogram sparring. Blake Tsuyuki of the Burnaby Judo Club earned a bronze medal in the men’s under-60kg division, beating Deigo Sanchez of Ontario by Waza-ari in the consolation bout. Ashley Bartlett placed fifth following a loss by ippon to fellow B.C. teammate Lisa Nakajima in the u-70kg women’s consolation bracket. Burnaby club instructor Bob Orescanin and Ron Kuramoto won a bronze medal in the masters kata competition.

Share and share alike

Brothers Terry and Bill Mosdell shared masters’ singles titles at the Canadian racquetball championships at Rev’s in Burnaby last weekend. Terry won the national men’s 55-plus singles title, while Bill finished first in the 55-plus consolation singles and 55-plus doubles finals. Terry also won a second medal, finishing runner-up in the men’s A doubles. The brothers both grew up in Burnaby and attended local schools. Both were involved with lacrosse in Burnaby and later with the Jr.A New Westminster Salmonbellies. Bill also played eight seasons with the Sr. ’Bellies, sharing three Mann Cups.

Clan receives character award

Simon Fraser University’s track and field team earned a further honour at the NAIA championships. The Clan team, thirdplace finisher in the women’s division at last weekend’s small college national championships, was named the winner of the NAIA champions of character team award following the meet. Teams that receive the award demonstrate respect, responsibility, integrity,

work as hard as I can every shift. I can’t really change personalities in sports. I can’t take off any shifts. I have to run the floor and try to motivate the players.” And trust Toll to lead his followers into the second half of the B.C. lacrosse season with renewed energy. On Tuesday, the junior Salmonbellies upset the defending provincial champion Coquitlam Adanacs 9-8 on Walt Weaver night at at Queen’s Park Arena. Toll contributed two assists in the contest, leaving the junior A ‘Bellies as the only undefeated team in the league at 6-0-1. The first of Toll’s helpers came on a shorthanded goal by Tyler Digby in the first period. The second came off a turnover at midfloor that led to an 8-6 breakaway tally for Matt MacGrotty that put New West on the road to victory. It’s the perfect scenerio Toll envisions whenever he thinks ahead at how he’d want to see his final season play out. With Coquitlam hosting this year’s Canadian junior championship, the possibility is favourable for a New Westminster entry into the Minto Cup either as the playoff champion or the runner-up. Toll says getting to the final round and winning a Game 7 would be the only way to go, but his experience tells him to take it one step and one win at a time. “But the goal of the team is to win the league and take it from there,” he added.

leadership and sportsmanship. This season, the Clan showed its character while coping with the passing of former teammate Bernd Dittrich, who died in late November. Three Clan team members were also acknowledged as NAIA scholar athletes. Sviatoslav Moldavanov, Emily Palibroda and Rachelle BarnettofNewWestminster each received an award.

Burrards drop first game of the season Cory Melville scored a hat trick in his debut with the senior B Burnaby Burrards. The former New Westminster Salmonbellie tallied three goals in a narrow 8-7 loss to the Tri-City Bandits at the Port Coquitlam rec centre Monday. Rob Brommer, hot off a career 10-point outing the week before, led the Burrards with a goal and three helpers. Rookie senior Chris Macey also scored a goal in his first game in the West Coast Senior Lacrosse League. The loss was the first of the season for the Burrards, who slipped into second place with a record of 5-1-0. Ladner currently leads the senior B loop with an unblemished 6-0-0 record.
