Gun enthusiast decries loss of shooting sites Resident says city cares more about Burnaby Lake rowers than recreational shooters Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
Burnaby resident Jeremy Roberts used to be able to drive to a shooting range within five minutes of his place. But about a decade ago, Burnaby’s three
gun ranges were ordered to close. Now, Roberts has to drive 35 minutes to the Port Coquitlam and District Hunt and Fishing Club, the only outdoor gun range left in Metro Vancouver. “It’s very crowded,” Roberts said. “Even on a weekday, you’ve got to wait your turn (for one of the 20 or 25 shooting positions).” There are about 2,500 members, Roberts said. He is upset that the City of Burnaby
has not done anything to accommodate recreational target shooters in the city since removing the three ranges. The three ranges, which covered 26 acres on Burnaby Mountain, were the Burnaby Fish and Game Club, Barnet Rifle Club and Coast Marksmen. Other recreational enthusiasts get consideration in the city, he pointed out. Two of the former gun ranges are now mountain biking parks, Roberts added, but he rarely sees them used.
The city has approved the dredging of Burnaby Lake, at a cost of $16 million, which will restore the rowing course there, he said. “I don’t know anybody who rows,” he said. “But I know lots of people that target shoot.” He is unimpressed with the city’s priorities – approving licences for massage parlours that use lurid ads to attract customers Guns Page 10
Non-profit finds errors in govt. math Ministry apologizes for giving ‘wrong’ information Andrew Fleming staff reporter
The Deaf Children’s Society of B.C., a local non-profit organization dedicated to helping deaf and hard of hearing children and their families, recently held a “fun run” fundraiser at Burnaby Fraser Foreshore Park to offset budget cuts that have resulted in staff losing their jobs. It was the first time in the charity’s 30-year history that it has had to try and raise money after its annual funding was slashed by the Liberal government. The Burnaby NOW contacted the Ministry of Children and Family Development, the provincial agency in charge of funding the facility, and was told by its communication director, Kelly Gleeson, that “the funding was reduced by about $40,000 to just under $400,000 annually.” The figure was quoted in a subsequent story (“Deaf Children’s Society on the run to help kids,” May 29) about the society’s attempts to make ends meet. It turns out the stated amount didn’t tell the complete story. “Typo or false information from the ministry?” asked the society’s executive director, Janice Springford, in an e-mail. “The budget cut was more like $140,000, not $40,000.” Although the cuts to the Burnabybased charity’s budget for the past fiscal year were actually correct, Gleeson did not mention the more than $100,000 that was axed the previous year. “When we talked about any funding reductions this year over last year, it was Funding Page 8

City water quality continues to improve Burnaby’s water quality continued to improve last year, according to a report presented by the environment committee to city council on Monday. The bacteriological water quality complied with the B.C. Drinking Water Protection Regulation, and E. coli was not detected in any of the potable water samples. Two samples contained (fecal) coliform bacteria but were under the 10 per cent coliform content stipulated in the B.C. Drinking Water Protection Regulation. Free chlorine residuals at various sam-
Calendar of Events
pling stations have also improved over the past years. The majority of sampling stations had 0.2 milligrams per litre or more of chlorine, with the exception of the outlet from the Centennial Reservoir. The low chlorine residual at the Centennial Reservoir location could be attributed to low demand for water from the reservoir, according to the report. In order to address this, the city installed a point-of-use ultraviolet system approved by the Fraser Health Authority in early 2007. Other chemicals and metals were below

the levels recommended by the guidelines for Canadian drinking water quality. The pH levels of the water just barely met the objective outlined in the guidelines, but the report attributed that to the pH of the source water. Turbidity was an issue in some of the water mains during testing. At locations where turbidity was higher than recommended, staff flushed the water main and notified Fraser Health. In 2009, 2,491 drinking water samples were taken at 63 sample locations. – Janaya Fuller-Evans

When news of the change hit the headlines, Canadians took little notice; it was little more than a minor distraction from the real show to our south. But in reality, short of plugging the well ourselves or reorganizing the chaotic American response to the spill, there is little we can do to help. It is within our power, however, is to prevent the
same horror from erupting in our own waters. To do so, Canadians must pressure their leaders to tighten regulations here, to force oil companies to prove they have foolproof safeguards against a similar leak. It may seem counterintuitive, but the most valuable thing we can do in response to the Deep Horizon disaster is to turn away from it.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Culture of rudeness is growing
After spending a number of years in the call centre industry, I’ve come to notice an ever growing “culture of disconnect.” Is this due to a critical failure in our education system, the daily barrage of negative information or simply a collective laziness of character, kindness or manners? The disrespect shown between humans is growing as we continue to remove ourselves from each other with our ever-expanding digital communication. Yet people continue to move closer to each other by migrating to urban centres while perceiving cultural differences as ignorance or stupidity. Rudeness is becoming commonplace in this country as we grow impatient with ourselves and

take our frustrations out on those around us. Please, before you pick up the phone and start yelling at “the voice on the other end,” take a moment to assess your situation, formulate your concerns in an understandable way and perhaps try “asking for assistance” instead of being a jackass! Reality shows that promote this type of behaviour are just that – scripted reality shows. Be kind! Show your positive character and manners in every interaction of every day, and I promise you your life will be so much healthier, happier and wonderful. Be Canadian!

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR HST has yet to be proven
I am perplexed by Trudy Gordon’s “Get the facts on the HST” (June 12). The letter treats the following expectations as facts: (a) In a competitive global marketplace, the HST will create direct and indirect cost savings for B.C. business operators; (b) These savings will allow business operators to drop their prices; (c) That will enhance their ability to gain a market share from their competitors in Alberta and the U.S.; (d) The savings from the HST will also allow B.C. businesses to invest in new equipment to grow their businesses, hire more British Columbians and become more productive. Regarding (a), the B.C. HST has partly come into place for about a month and the effect has yet to be seen (not a proven fact). It can be expected that there will be cost savings for B.C. business operators, mainly in the form of a refund of the HST paid, but there is some other way to achieve the same result? It has nothing to do with whether the market is competitive or not, nor whether it is global or not. Re: (b), will this expectation materialize? It depends on two things. First, whether businessmen have set a ceiling for their maximum profit? Second, where do we find perfect competition? You can find it in the textbooks on economics, but not in the real world. Re: (c), we may be able to buy a Chinamade T-shirt here with C$10, but in Hong Kong the same merchandise is sold for HK$10 or less. If traders can mark up the price so much and local producers can’t compete with their neighbours, something
is very wrong and may not be able to be remedied by dropping the price. Re: (d), this expectation is very similar to the premier’s statement that HST will attract investment. I think any person will agree that investors will invest in places where they expect that they can earn more. How will the HST affect manufacturers? For those manufacturing for local consumption, they can be separated in two groups. The first group produces goods for which consumers at present pay the GST only. When the HST makes them pay more, the demand for these may drop. Will investors outside B.C. come to wade in the diminishing pool? The second group produces goods for which consumers at present pay both GST and PST. Theoretically, the demand for these remains the same. But, as consumers have to pay an increased tax on some goods, their power of consumption for the second group of goods will not be higher unless their income is improved. This, again, is not an incentive to attract investment. I mentioned above that there is some other way that may have the same effect as refunding the HST. I am not in business, but I understand (please correct me if I am wrong) that businesses are entitled to claim refunds of the GST paid on material for production, on machinery, on software, etc. To enable them to claim refunds of the PST can be easily done by the provincial government making a law. To do so is better than introducing the HST at the expense of consumers. It will also achieve the result anticipated by the premier to attract investment into B.C. I am not telling readers facts. I hope that they realize what to anticipate and what to expect. Henry Ho, Burnaby
Housing: National strategy needed continued from page 6
of our communities. It’s a direct and effective way to fight poverty. We submit that a “hand up” today helps avoid a “handout” tomorrow. Surely this axiom can, and should, be put to the test. In any case, it is the civilized and humanitarian alternative. A key element of a successful national housing policy will be an understanding of and emphasis on the important role of affordable home ownership. Owning a home helps reduce the burden on public housing properties and provides people with a stable foundation on which to build a life and a future. It allows them to remove themselves from the social welfare system and begin
to break the cycle of need. But it can’t be achieved on a large and meaningful scale without the leadership of government – to provide tax-credit programs, help with down payments and, where possible, donate suitable land or provide it at well below market rate. Today, as perhaps never before, there exists across our country a contrast between an abundance of wealth and a surfeit of need – of grim living conditions being endured by those whose voices often go unheard, whose plights go unnoticed. These past two decades have also resulted in the stalling out of measures to reduce income gaps and inequalities and a growing pattern of dispar-
ity in inequality. If the G8 does not wrestle with this unhealthy and unwise phenomenon, then what is the point of it meeting at all – and at what non-productive cost? What greater and more critical role can be there for government than extending a hand up to citizens who are in need? The true gauge of our national character rests in how we treat the least fortunate among us. The true measure of our success will be in the legacy we leave behind. The Rt. Hon. Edward Schreyer, a former governor general of Canada, is a board member of Habitat for Humanity International and founder of the Edward and Lily Schreyer Habitat for Humanity Canada Work Project.

All-day kindergarten expands Taylor Park Elementary has been added to the list of Burnaby schools that will have all-day kindergarten classes available. “That’s really good and very important, because it is an area that’s definitely growing,” said school board chair Diana Mumford. Development around the school will mean an increased demand for kindergarten space, she noted. Taylor Park will get an addition built onto the school to house eight new classrooms. Four other schools are getting modular buildings: Brentwood Park, Lakeview, Montecito and Sperling, for a total of five classes. In all, Burnaby will see a net increase of 13 new classrooms to make room for full-
day kindergarten. It’s all part of the provincial government’s $144.5-million plan to bring in allday kindergarten to B.C. schools over the next two years. “Research shows that a high-quality, play-based kindergarten program develops the academic and social skills that help children succeed in school and in life,” said Education Minister Margaret MacDiarmid in a press release. In Burnaby, the full-day kindergarten classes starting this September will use existing space already available at local schools. The classes starting in 2011 will be in the modular buildings or the addition at Taylor Park. firstname.lastname@example.org
Funding: Run raised about $4,500 continued from page 3
$40,000,” Gleeson explained in a followup interview. “The issue was this: When you go back two years, the funding reduction was $107,000, so if you add them together, the funding reductions was about $140,000. That’s where some of the confusion came through.” Gleeson said he regrets the mix-up, which he said was caused by being provided with the “wrong information” from staff. “Obviously I’m sorry it went this way,” said Gleeson. “The last thing we
want is something out there that’s wrong or is seemed to be wrong, and that’s the case here.” “I hope the ministry is more careful in the future when they respond to these kinds of queries,” said Springford. “When the ministry makes statements that are misleading and erroneous, it does no one any good. Most people would say a $40K cut is nothing, but $140K really hurts.” She said the June 6 fun run raised around $4,500, and staff are already making plans for a second one
for next year. The Ministry of Children and Family Development currently funds three separate agencies in the Lower Mainland that cater to the needs of children with hearing impairments and, while the Deaf Children’s Society received less cash, the Surrey-based B.C. Family Hearing Resource Society and Vancouver’s Children’s Hearing and Speech Centre both received more. The total amount of available funding for families with deaf kids, $1.4 million, remained unchanged.

Seniors’ care homes get more funding Janaya Fuller-Evans
Seven Burnaby seniors’ care homes are getting additional funding from Fraser Health after rate adjustments were made in January. The health authority is providing an additional $12 million in funding this year for 43 facilities throughout the region. Fraser Health is slated to provide $8 million in additional funding next year as well. “The target is to increase direct care,” said Ray Thorpe, spokesperson for Fraser Health. He added the funding is also intended to standardize care throughout the region. According to Thorpe, seven seniors’ facilities in Burnaby will receive additional funding this year: ◗ Carlton Lodge has 76 funded beds and will get an additional $243,996. ◗ Dania Manor has 67 funded beds and will get an additional $6,364. ◗ Finnish Manor has 60 funded beds and will get an additional $320,215. ◗ George Derby Long-term Care Centre has 300 funded beds and will get an additional $1 million. ◗ Harmony Court has 55 funded beds and will get an additional $304,143. ◗ New Vista Care Home has 236 funded beds and will get an additional $71,007. ◗ Willingdon Park has 95 funded beds and will get an additional $48,967. The extra funding was made possible through a rate adjustment last January. “When the new and more equitable rate
structure was introduced earlier this year, we committed that the increased revenue would be used to improve direct care for our seniors,” said Health Services Minister Kevin Falcon in a press release. The funding is intended to increase direct care hours from an average of 2.46 hours per day per resident to 2.79 hours throughout Fraser Health’s region, from Burnaby to Mission. Direct care hours do not include meals, laundry or housekeeping. New staffing standards have also been introduced. “New standards for staffing and increased accountability for all providers will ensure that seniors in residential care receive the same level of quality complex care at every facility in Fraser Health’s region-wide network of care,” said Barbara Korabek, Fraser Health’s vice-president of clinical operations. The new standards require a minimum of one registered nurse at all times, increased licensed practical nurses, care aides and other health staff, including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, social workers and dietitians. Fraser Health spends approximately $450 million per year on residential care across the region, according to a press release. About 6,000 beds are located in 68 residential care sites funded by Fraser Health but operated privately or by non-profits. Twenty-five residential care facilities in the region did not receive additional funding, including Carlton Gardens in Burnaby. email@example.com

Boe, who was diagnosed with high functioning autism when she was three and is now in Grade 11, will be attending Camp Squamish this year, in August. Each year, including last summer, Boe reconnects with her camp friends. “I ended up seeing some people I hadn’t seen in a few years,” Boe, a Richmond resident, says. “There were familiar faces and new friends.” The camp friends stay in touch throughout the year, when they can,

Eyeing a bright musical future ART CHAT
f you’re looking for the future of orchestral music in Canada, look no further than the University of Western Ontario in London, Ont. This summer, the National Youth Orchestra of Canada (NYOC) will gather there, starting this coming week, for five weeks of intensive training followed by a three-week national tour. It’s the 50th anniversary year for the orchestra, which is designed to provide worldclass training to the country’s best young orchestral musicians. Ninety-four young musicians, aged 16 to 28, from across the country were chosen from more than 620 applicants. In their ranks are two 18-year-olds from Burnaby: Anthony Blackman on double bass, and Merrissa Ollivier on harp. Julie MacLellan caught up with Anthony and Merrissa by e-mail. ◆
What’s your musical background? Anthony: I started playing the violin at age four, took on the cello at five, and finally switched to the double bass at 13. I just finished my first year at McGill University studying with Joel Quarrington, currently the principal bassist of the National Arts Centre Orchestra and one of the world’s predominant bassists. As one of the winners of the Vancouver Youth Symphony Orchestra’s (VYSO) concerto competition last year, I played Bottesini’s Concerto No. 2 with the VYSO in concert and have also played the first movement of the concerto with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in a series of six concerts for elementary school children. Merrissa: I began piano lessons at age three, harp lessons at age four-and-a-half. I studied piano with Burnaby teachers May Lim and Barbara Reichard and harp with Rita Costanzi, and I currently study with Heidi Krutzen. I have played harp with the Vancouver Youth Symphony Orchestra, UBC Symphony Orchestra, Comox Valley Youth Music Centre, West Coast Symphony and National Youth

The future is bright: Merrissa Ollivier, left, and Anthony Blackman of Burnaby have been chosen for the National Youth Orchestra of
Canada, which is meeting in London, Ont. starting this coming week. Ollivier plays the harp, while Blackman plays the double bass. The two took time out of their busy musical schedules for a Q-and-A with the Burnaby NOW.
Orchestra of Canada, and I have my ARCT in piano. What got you interested in your chosen instrument? Anthony: When I was little, I was the smallest in my immediate family, so I wanted the biggest instrument and picked the cello. Switching to the bass was another step in the same direction, though I’m now taller than the rest of my family. Merrissa: When I was four, a suggestion was made that I should study a more unusual instrument in addition to piano. You’ve both been involved with the National Youth Orchestra before – Merrissa once before and Anthony twice. What did you enjoy about the experience? What did you learn from it as a musician? Anthony: NYOC is a great experience for anyone wanting to become a professional musician. The faculty is excellent, and the repertoire is challenging, and though much of every day is spend rehearsing and practising, there is still enough free time for ping pong tournaments and daily ultimate frisbee games. In my first year at NYOC, I learned that I wanted to pursue a professional career in music. Merrissa: Being a member of the NYOC in 2009 was an unfor-

When I was young, my mother was the one who attended my lessons, took notes, made sure I practised, took me to performances (symphonies, concerts, festivals, summer music camps) and nurtured my love of music. Where are you currently studying, and what are you studying? Anthony: I’ve finished my first year studying music at McGill. I will most likely be declaring a minor in computer science in my second year. Merrissa: I am currently studying at UBC. I am pursuing two degrees simultaneously: a bachelor of science degree and a bachelor of music performance degree. I am interested in the health sciences and medical ethics and would like to volunteer internationally. Are you eyeing music as a professional future? Do you want to perform? Teach? Conduct? Anthony: I would love a career with a professional orchestra, though I’m open to other possibilities as well. Basically, anything to do with music would be great.

Orchestra: Eyeing a musical future
Why do you love music? What rewards does it bring? Anthony: The reason behind which people enjoy music is very complex, and since I’m not a neuroscientist I can’t tell you
Is there anyone in particular you’d like to thank? Anthony: I’d like to thank my parents for giving me financial support, my former bass teacher, David Brown, for having taught me so much and pushed me forward with a positive attitude, and Joel Quarrington for having radically changed my view of playing the bass. Merrissa: None of this would have been possible without my mother. She has always been there for
me. She is the one who bought my first harp and who has made sure that as I grew I had the rightsized harp. (As you grow and the music becomes more difficult, you have to switch from smaller harps to bigger harps and from a lever harp to a pedal harp.) When I began studying music in university, she bought me a fullsized concert grand harp. (By the way, my mother is a teacher at Burnaby Mountain Secondary.) And, of course, I would never have gotten to where I am without the constant help and support of all my teachers. The National Youth Orchestra of Canada is scheduled to perform at the Chan Centre in Vancouver on Aug. 8 as part of its national tour. See www.nyoc.org for further details. If you know someone you’d like to see profiled in a future Art Chat spot, let us know. E-mail jmaclellan@ burnabynow.com.

VancouverHalf.com Enter the Scotiabank Group Charity Challenge and join Mason Raymond of the Vancouver Canucks, this year’s Honourary Chair.
How much time do you spend on music – practising, lessons, orchestra rehearsals etc.? Anthony: I’ve been doing two or three hours of solo practice each day. While at McGill, I was getting weekly lessons of one hour, rehearsing two hours three times a week with the McGill Symphony Orchestra, and doing some chamber music as well. Merrissa: I have weekly music lessons, orchestra rehearsals several times a week and many more hours spent practising.
why musical sounds result in the pleasant feeling in which they result; I can only tell you that I do love music. Merrissa: Studying both the sciences and music, I have found that music has the capacity to affect people in a way that other disciplines do not. Playing music brings me happiness, and I love being able to share that experience with others.

Chevron hosts meeting for refinery neighbours HERE & NOW
hevron is holding a community advisory panel meeting on June 24 at Confederation Seniors’ Centre. The panel includes a group of local residents who all live close to the refinery or tank farm. The point of the panel is for Chevron to have an open, constructive dialogue with its neighbours. The meetings are held four times a year, and the June 24 meeting will be the first one after the oil leak was discovered on April 21, north of the refinery. The discussions are mostly on safety, refinery operations, the environment, odours and noise reduction. Only people who live in the neighbourhood can attend the meetings, either as an observer or a volunteer member, and you must give advance notice
if you plan to go. To get involved, contact Ray Lord, 604-257-4095 or Kim Barbero, 778-9897045. Confederation Seniors’ Centre is at 4585 Albert St., close to the McGill library branch. The meeting runs from 7 to 9 p.m.
Local resident Jodi Van Brunt was given a gold-level award from the Association of Canadian Community Colleges this June. Van Brunt is the student services coordinator for Vancouver Community College’s school of music, and the award was for staff excellence. Van Brunt’s reaction to the honour was “complete shock,” and it came just six days after she lost her mom to cancer. “My mom was a VCC employee in international education for eight years, and she would have been so incredibly proud of me,” Van Brunt said in a press release. “I feel the award is for her, really, as she’s the one who taught me that
having a job you love is so important, the giving back to others is incredibly rewarding.” Van Brunt’s award was one of three that VCC received.

How to help rhubarb thrive GREEN SCENE Anne Marrison
Question: I have a rhubarb patch in a raised bed. I started out with three plants, and they kept multiplying. Now I have a dozen, but they are very spindly. What can I do? Joan Coffey, by e-mail Answer: Your rhubarb plants are overcrowded and possibly under-nourished. They need digging up and dividing. It’s a job for a sharp spade and good muscles because rhubarb has enormous, deep roots. You may have to slice
through to divide them. An axe can help if the spade isn’t sharp enough. There are always deeper bits of root that won’t come up. That’s normal. The divisions for replanting should be cleaned up of any old brown bits left over from previous harvestings. It would be best to renovate the bed by digging in composted manure before replanting. A yearly topdressing of more composted manure will keep up the nutrition level. This can be done either in spring when harvesting is over or in fall or winter when rhubarb has gone dormant. Question: We did a yard reno last fall and dug up many tulips, which I planted in pots. They bloomed this spring and have now died back in the pots. I plan to put them back in the
ground. Will it be OK to leave them in pots until the fall and then plant them? Or should I dig them up and keep them in my garage until fall. Or is there another alternative? Bev Pearson, Coquitlam Answer: Storing your tulips in pots is fine, but they must be in a very, very dry place. The old-time gardeners routinely dug up tulips after flowering, stored them in a sheltered spot until the leaves finished dying down then stored them under cover. They replanted them in fall and, I suspect, did most of the fertilizing then. But I do think you should dig your tulips out of the pots when the leaves have died down. Take a good look at them before returning them to storage in the pots. Any diseased or rotted bulbs should be
discarded. Also many tulips (especially the large-flowered exotic ones) split up into little bulblets after flowering. Some tulips will have a very small main bulb surrounded by tiny mini bulbs while others will have nothing but tiny bulbs. These bulblets could develop into big, flowering tulip bulbs – but only if you grow them on in perfect conditions for a few years. This is difficult to do because our climate is far too wet for most tulips. Tulips come from Turkish hillsides where the average rainfall is similar to the Okanagan. Winters are very cold and summers hot and dry. Conditions in a plant’s native land are a good indication how a plant should be treated.

Kids Biz! Is there is link between music and intelligence? Music Lessons train the brain to improve attention span and memory, to follow rules, and to recognize complex patterns, and they also help students refine their motor skills (hand-eye coordination), decode musical notation, and understand time and math concepts (rhythm). These all have a direct positive effect on intelligence, resulting in higher IQs.
Help make a child’s summer unforgettable donate today
A gift that changed a life
t’s difficult to deny the effect that music can have on the human brain. Many studies show the benefits that music has on the early brain development of children. The real benefit occurs when children actually learn to play a musical instrument. Overall, children
who take music lessons have higher IQs. Recent research confirms that in a mere 6 to 8 months, children who had weekly music lessons score higher in: • Spatial-temporal skills • Mathematical ability • Reading skills • Vocabulary • Verbal memory
The Summer Activity That
In 1939, 15 year old Betty entered a world full of trees, lakes and bonfires. Sponsored by a woman who her mother worked for, Betty spent three summers at camp where she learned many of the life skills that contributed to her development into the confident and independent woman she is today. She later became a camp leader and a camp director. Betty donates annually to the Burnaby Camping Bureau, helping children from families with low income to have a life changing experience at summer camp. Burnaby Camping Bureau provides subsidies to Burnaby children from families with low-income to attend to camp. Each child receives up to $175 towards the cost of a summer camp of their choice.

Today, only 7% of children play a musical instrument. Most of the remaining 93% would like to learn. With these numbers, and all the research over the years showing the positive effects of music, we should all be inspired to make playing music a bigger part of our day-to-day lives. Music lessons can be started from the mother’s womb by exposing expectant mothers to classical music. Toddlers can have a lot fun interacting with their parents by learning to sing nursery rhymes and move to music. Preschoolers can start by playing Orff instruments—they have blast learning about rhythm. Private music lessons can start at around 5 years of age, and studying music will keep your mind sharp well into the golden years. Playing a musical instrument is not only for the elite, but is a pursuit available to everyone. Music can evoke emotions ranging from elation or joy to deep sorrow. It can draw us to states of patriotic action, and yet also bring peaceful, quiet moments. We all have a song to sing that represents our story. Whether you play the flute, the piano, or simply use your own voice, the important thing is to enjoy expressing yourself through music.

“Children under four years of age are also very susceptible and so are most kids as they grow. When their blood is low in iron it slows them down with the things they are trying to achieve.”
• 2-4 oz servings of lean meats “Also, be sure to add vitamin C foods such as peppers, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and oranges to meals to improve iron absorption,” Dr. CarlsonRink continued, “and for prevention, consider plant-based liquids such as Salus Floradix, to normalize iron levels without preservatives, additives, and most importantly, without iron overload.”
The bottom line is to catch the problem early. Iron deficiency has been linked to a number of problems in children including developmental delays, behaviour problems, learning difficulties, attention deficit disorder, and ear infections. If you suspect your child has low iron, do mention it to your doctor so a hemoglobin and serum ferritin test can be scheduled. More information is available online at www. requiredforlife.com. NC

Picky eating is often the cause, but perhaps there are some kid-favourite foods on this list:
“Especially during the growth spurts of puberty, both girls and boys can develop an iron deficiency,” says Dr. Cathy Carlson-Rink, a licensed naturopathic physician and registered midwife.
• Lentils and beans
If, however, you notice tiredness, behavioural problems, inability to concentrate, poor achievement in sports and school, and frequent colds, don’t be surprised to hear that it might be due to iron deficiency.
• Blackstrap molasses

7231 Frances Street, North Burnaby Daycare & Out of School
pick a child to sponsor by age, gender, and country. Your child will learn about another country as they communicate with their new friend through letters. Show them what you are passionate about. If you are a serious stamp collector, share your collection with your child. If you are a die-hard baseball fan, now is the time to show off your memorabilia and make use of all that knowledge. By Melissa Yue
ith music and dance lessons, sports teams, tutoring, and summer camp, it’s clear that you want to help your child develop academically and socially. But sometimes the challenge is to figure out what your child’s real strengths and passions are in the midst of the flurry of activity.
Here are some tips to help you and your child recognize their passions: Pay attention. When you watch a movie or read a story together, look and listen for a response from your child. Did your child get up and start dancing when they heard music? Did your child feel adamant and angry about issues of injustice (e.g. Why did Cinderella’s stepmother treat her differently from her sisters?)
Get them moving. Supporting a mini couch potato will only foster laziness and passivity. Get outdoors with your child and try out different sports at the park. You can also teach them how to take photos, plant a garden, or identify nature. Expose your child to the world. Trips to other countries are a luxury, but aren’t necessary when you can bring your child to museums, art galleries, and cultural restaurants or landmarks in your neighbourhood. Your child may become passionate about a cause like protecting the environment, caring for sick animals, or helping an impoverished child who is the same age as them. Through Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (www.ccfcanada.ca), parents can

Letting your child into your world will create a special bond and will show you whether that passion is transferrable. Just be sure to take notice if your child’s eyes have glazed over during your baseball speech and accept the fact that they may not develop that interest. Participate in their efforts and have fun. The best thing you, as a parent, can do for your child is to encourage them when they succeed and when they fail. You may have to eat a few burnt breakfasts, laugh extra loud when they deliver a line in a talent show, or pretend you’re not worried when you watch them perform a seemingly dangerous sport, but your child will take comfort in knowing they have a fan for life despite their failures.

Lancer offers good value in a small package David Chao and Bob
itsubishi is relatively new to Canada as a standalone company, and so far it hasn’t been able to attract westerners in the same way that residents of La Belle Province have taken to cars like its Lancer. Compacts are very popular in Quebec, and it’s easy to see why they are smitten by Lancer. About the same price as Canada’s bestselling car, the Honda Civic, the Lancer is a little bigger, has a larger, more powerful engine and it comes with a longer warranty. The star of the Mitsubishi product line, Lancer is available in a wide range of models, from inexpensive to high-performance. There’s even a wild, over-fiftygrand Evolution or “Evo” edition, which is essentially a road-going version of the very successful Mitsubishi rally car. Lancer received its last generational redesign for the 2008 model year. It was a wheels-up remake with an all-new body, interior and mechanicals. Changes for the 2010 model year, in contrast, are relatively minor and essentially cosmetic, with the exception of a new standard stability control system. Externally the changes include a redesigned side air dam, a short-pole roofmounted antenna and what’s called an “intelligent” washer. On the inside, its instrument panel gauge is redesigned and
the door finish has been improved. Lancer comes in two body styles, sedan and Sportback. The DX sedan starts at $16,998 and comes in SE, GTS and Ralliart trim levels. The Sportback GTS is $24,098 and Sportback Ralliart is $33,998. Under the hood, the base engine is a double overhead cam, 16-valve, 2.0-litre that can produce 152 hp at 6,000 r.p.m. and 146 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,250 r.p.m. The GTS and Ralliart editions come with a 2.4-litre engine that can produce 168 hp at 6,000 r.p.m. and 167 lb.-ft. torque at 4,100 r.p.m. Our test Lancer was an SE trim with a five-speed manual transmission, and it also came with a high-end RockfordFosgate audio system. The system includes a big trunkmounted 10-inch sub-woofer that takes up a chunk of cargo space. Mitsubishi vehicles are backed by a very impressive warranty. Complete bumper-to-bumper coverage is for five years or 100,000 km, body corrosion coverage is for seven years or 160,000 km and powertrain components are covered for 10 years or 160,000 km.
An appealing styling feature of the Lancer is its “shark attack” snout, plus it has a dramatic wedge-like side profile. The headlights have a menacing pinched appearance, and the blacked-out air

MOTORING Mitsubishi: Lancer offers good value during side and rear crashes and helps protect the fuel system during a rear impact. On top of that, occupants are protected by seven standard airbags, instead of the usual six. An additional driver’s knee airbag helps reduce lower body injuries and better position the driver in a frontal impact.
continued from page 25
The cabin size is generous, feels roomy for a compact car and is suited to biggerthan-average occupants. While there’s excellent fore/aft adjustment on the driver’s seat, having attained a comfortable leg/pedal position, I found myself having to reach a bit more than I prefer for the steering wheel and gear shift lever. The front seats are comfortable but don’t offer as much support as popular competitors like the Civic or Madza3. The driver’s seat, however, did come with a manual cushion-height adjuster, which helped to some degree to compensate for its lack of a telescopic steering column. Lancer provides 2,684 litres of space for its passengers and definitely has more rear seat room than most in this class. A climate-control air-conditioning system is standard with GTS. A manual system air comes with the SE trim, and it’s an option on DE.

Fuel economy is comparable with sportier versions of the Civic or the Mazda3 and the Lancer runs on regular fuel. That said, most competitors in this segment offer smaller capacity base engines that offer better fuel economy. Although Lancer had a tight turn circle, the straight line feel is surprisingly vague, as I expected better and quicker response given its sporty aspirations. A base Civic or Mazda3 would beat it for overall steering feel and straight-line stability. The five-speed manual transmission in my test Lancer was easy to navigate, and engagements were crisp. It’s a nice match with the smooth 2.0-litre engine, and the optional automatic is high-efficiency CVT type that actually offers better fuel economy.
As already mentioned, Lancer’s safety package now includes what Mitsubishi describes as an active stability control system, which is a terrific standard feature in this market segment. The body is built on what Mitsubishi describes as a Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) unibody platform. The RISE body structure enhances occupant protection by dispersing energy loads

MOTORING BCAA offers help for safe graduation festivities The British Columbia Automobile Association is doing its part to reward local grads who choose to celebrate safely – without alcohol or drugs. For the 19th consecutive year, the BCAA is supporting students who make the choice to hold Dry Grad celebrations by donating 100 memberships to participating B.C. and Yukon high schools. The memberships can be used as a gift, door prize or auction item to help with the school’s Dry Grad fundraising. “Parents, students and teachers work tirelessly all year to raise much needed funds to cover the costs of staging a Dry Grad event,” says Trace Acres, BCAA’s director of corporate communications and government affairs, in a press release. “We want to help schools provide a safe, drug- and alcohol-free environment where grad students can celebrate with their friends, be enter-
tained and steer clear of driving impaired.” Recent statistics reveal impaired driving amongst teens is still an ongoing concern. According to B.C. traffic collision statistics collected in 2007: ◆ Young drivers aged 16 to 20 represented less than 6.5 per cent of the total driving population, yet they were responsible for nearly 15 per cent of all alcohol-related collisions that year. ◆ Drivers between the ages of 16 and 20 account for the second-highest number of alcohol-related crashes, behind 21- to 25year-old drivers. ◆ Of the 7.1 per cent of under-aged alcoholinvolved drivers, 82 per cent were 17 and 18 years of age. ◆ The number of alcoholrelated collisions is highest in the month of June. ◆ The number of drug- and alcohol-related fatal collisions increased between 2006 and 2007.
“Graduating from high school brings a new sense of freedom and maturity,” says Allan Lamb, executive director of the BCAA Traffic Safety Foundation, in the press release. “I applaud those students who choose to celebrate with a Dry Grad and encourage them to continue to make responsible choices regarding alcohol, drugs and driving in the future.” Lamb also warns “drugdriving is just as big a risk to drivers and others road users.” Recent research conducted by the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse, together with the BCAA Traffic Safety Foundation, shows clear evidence that drug use and driving is as big a problem as alcohol and driving. BCAA will continue to provide support for high schools holding Dry Grad events in the future, but the organization is currently updating its annual Dry Grad Challenge program.
Details about the new program will be provided to B.C. and Yukon high schools when the new school year begins. For more information, schools and their Dry Grad committee members can contact BCAA Corporate Communications by phone at 604-268-5339 or e-mail.
BCAA also offers the following safety tips for grads – and anyone else enjoying a party: ◆ Choose a designated driver. ◆ Keep money aside for a bus or taxi. Consider saving up money to cover the cost of transportation for the times when you’ll be
consuming alcohol. ◆ Stay overnight in a safe place like a friend’s home or make arrangements for hotel accommodations ◆ Call a friend or family member who has not consumed any alcohol to pick you up. Then buy them a coffee or dinner to say thanks.

High on value, low on gadgets The car stereo sector is now realizing the repercussions of 2009’s economy. How else to explain a spate of new products that offer great value but no head-spinning features? Clarion’s CX400 follows the trend, offering excellent value but not the fodder that gadget gawkers would sink their teeth into. This double-DIN CD, USB, MP3, WMA and AAC receiver does have nice software under the hood, including Z-Enhancer Plus, which provides solid customization for audiophiles who like to mess around with the equalizing pattern, and Magna Bass EX, which boosts bass to provide additional low-frequency oomph. The CX400 offers sonic power to the tune of 50 watts per speaker output, and it can expand to Bluetooth and satellite radio via add-on components. What this puppy does not have is a new feature that makes us go “Wow!” But, for a double-DIN unit with high-end audio capability, the price is darn good: $250.

The quest for a cricket culture Former national teamer to hold kids’ camps in July Tom Berridge
At 37 years of age, Burnaby cricketer Barry Seebaran can hardly be called an old man. But his passionate desire to return to the good, old days of his favourite sport might make him appear older than his years. The Burnaby Mountain Secondary literature instructor was, and still is, at 16 years of age, the youngest-ever player to be named to Canada’s national cricket team. From 1989 to 2003, the slow, left-arm orthodox spin bowler competed for Canada at four International Cricket Council world cups, as well as the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Malaysia. The 2003 World Cup in South Africa was his last major competition. Now retired from international competition, you might think it is the game he misses. But, you would be wrong. The likable, lanky Seebaran just wants the game he grew up with to touch more people’s lives in the same way it profoundly changed his. “It would be so cool if the sport that I love could be supported the way other sports are,” Barry said. To that end, Barry and his younger brother, Brian, a former Team Canada trialist, will he holding two cricket and kanga ball day camps in Burnaby in July. The camps, sponsored by Qoola frozen yogurt, are for both boys and girls aged six to 13 years old. They will be held on July 5 to 9 and again on July

Passion play: Former national team cricketer Barry Seebaran of Burnaby
shows the form he will pass on to kids who attend Seebaz’s cricket and kanga ball day camps at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-East this July.
19 to 23 at the Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-East cricket ground. The daily routine will include the fundamentals of fielding, batting and bowling, while also touch-
ing on sportsmanship and a fun cricket match before ending with his special Seebaz awards. It’s all done to promote what Seebaran calls creating “a culture of cricket.”
Barry is the son of former B.C. Cricket Association president Ben Seebaran, an outstanding spin bowler and all-rounder in his own right. “I was part of that cul-
ture. My dad had a terrific passion for cricket. I was immersed in that cricket culture, and I want to pass it on. I’d hate to lose that tradition,” said Barry. “It’s a credit to all those passionate cricketers. It wasn’t just the skills – batting, bowling and hitting – it was the whole game, the chatting with the other teams, socializing, the tea break, the way teams hosted the other teams. You feel when it’s right, and when things are taught right, it’s like no other sport.” Through the years, Barry has put his passion where his heart is with similar pursuits. He began teaching introductory kanga ball in local and Burnaby elementary schools, and when he secured a teaching position at Burnaby South Secondary in 1999, he started up the first high school cricket league, which continues to this day. He is currently assisting another passionate supporter of Lower Mainland cricket, Jack Kyle, with the pre-junior programs, teaching the under-12 players on Saturday mornings. Barry’s cricket camps are wholly supported by Cricket Canada and the provincial body. “It’sbeenwellreceived,” Barry said, adding that the camp is just a first step towards a goal of building a network of support for young cricketers into adulthood. “I know from past experience there are so many different ways for kids to be successful. We want to reinforce that success with fitness, skill development and tradition,” he said. “I want it to be in and of itself a success. But even if they Cricket Page 43
AHL Dman wins second Calder Cup Tom Berridge
Waiting for his moment in the bigs has had its perks for minor league hockey defenceman Karl Alzner. Alzner, a fifth overall draft pick by the Washington Capitals in the 2007 NHL junior draft, shared in a second consecutive American Hockey League Calder Cup championship title with the Hershey Bears June 14. The Burnaby product scored a goal, his third of the playoffs, in the 4-0 titlewinning game against the Texas Stars in the best-ofseven AHL championship series. The 2-0 goal came in the opening period off a blast from the left circle with under two minutes remaining in the frame. The win, before a franchise record 11,002 fans at the Giant Centre in Hershey, Pennsylvania, was the club’s league-best 11th overall championship title. It was also Hershey’s third title win in the last five seasons, and the first repeat Calder Cup winner since 1991. The Bears, the Capitals’ top development team, defeated the Stars in six games, becoming the first team in AHL history to win the cup after losing the first two final games on home ice. Hershey also set a record with eight overtime victories in the 2010 post season, Hockey Page 41
Clan name sixth varsity men’s hoop coach Victoria native James Blake was announced as the sixth head coach of the Simon Fraser University varsity men’s basketball program on June 15. Blake replaces Scott Clark, who resigned the head coaching duties last month after 15 seasons at the helm. Last season, Blake was the associate head coach at Columbia College.
Prior to that, he spent two seasons as an assistant coach, helping NCAA Division I California State University Northridge win two Big West conference titles. In 2009, Cal Northridge earned a first-round appearance against Memphis in the NCAA national tournament. Before that, Blake served as the head assistant men’s basketball coach at California State
Stanislaus in Div. II. “I can’t wait to get started,” said Blake in a SFU press release. “I’m extremely excited to have this opportunity. I’ve talkeed to the majority of returning playe3rs and to the incoming players, and I look forward to working with each of them.” Blake played collegiately at Brandon from 1995 to ’97 and for the University of Victoria from
1998 to 2000. He graduated from UVic and later earned a master’s coaching program at the national coaching institution in his hometown. During his playing days at Brandon, Blake helped the team to a CIS national championship in 1996, winning rookie of the year and most inspirational awards along the way. As a junior transfer to UVic,
Blake took the Vikings to a Canada West championship in ‘99 and on to an appearance in the elite eight. After graduation, he also played professionally in England for one season before focusing on his coaching career. “Recruiting is my number 1 priority right now. I will be all Coach Page 43

BURRUS, Margaret (Young) 1919 - 2010
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Margaret at the age of 91, on Monday, June 14, 2010 in New Westminster, B.C. Margaret was predeceased by her husband Ernie in 1995 and her parents William and Agnes (Knox) Young and her sister Mary Baxter. Margaret’s parents emigrated from Scotland to Canada in the early 1900s and settled in Sapperton. Margaret was always very interested and proud of her Scottish heritage. Margaret is survived by her 5 children: (2) daughters: Marilyn Watson (Ken), Barbara Pedersen, and 3 sons: Bob (Tanna), David (Kathy), Don (Marilynne), (13) Grandchildren and 7 Great-Grandchildren. Margaret was born at the Royal Columbian Hospital in 1919, went to school at Sir Richard McBride School and lived her entire life in Sapperton, New Westminster. Margaret and Ernie were married in Knox Presbyterian Church in 1940 and were active members of the church. Mom lived at 336 Cedar Street for 65 years before becoming a resident at the Royal City Manor in 2005. She always treasured time spent with her family, her friends and her precious grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be remembered as a loving, caring and compassionate mother and friend to all who knew her. We wish to thank the staff at Royal City Manor for the compassion and loving care given to our Mom during her 5 years at the Manor, coping with the ever-changing confusion of Alzheimer’s disease. A Celebration of Mom’s life will be held on Thursday, June 24, 2010 at 1 p.m. at Knox Presbyterian Church, 403 East Columbia St., New Westminster. “Mom has gone home to her reward in heaven, there will be no more sorrow and no more tears.”
MORTIMER, Hugh Stuart
September 12, 1927 – June 11, 2010 Son of William A and Annie Christine Mortimer; beloved father and much loved member of the community left us suddenly on June 11, 2010. Hugh is survived by his brother Ernest and sister Doris (Howard) Henry; sons Art (Sue) and Rick; daughter Ruth; six grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. Hugh was predeceased by his daughter Christine Grace and seven brothers and sisters. Dad was a long time resident of South Westminster and New Westminster. He had a long career in transportation beginning with delivering milk, then driving school bus for Mairs Transport and as a member of the Pre 65 Line Drivers. Hugh had a twenty year career with the Weigh Scales until retiring in 1988. Dad was a selfprofessed crib playing champion and an avid ﬁsherman. Fun loving and good natured, “Hugh the Glue” enjoyed visiting and keeping in touch with family and friends. As a long time supporter and fan of the New Westminster Salmon Bellies and the Westminster Bruins, Hugh loved his sports. Sincere thanks to the staff and specialists at Royal Columbian Hospital for their wonderful care and to Dr. Albrecht, Hugh’s long time friend and physician. Condolences may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. In lieu of ﬂowers donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. A Celebration of Life will be held Wednesday, July 7 between 1 pm and 5 pm at Glenbrook Park Centre, 76 Jamieson Court, New Westminster.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: Relationships are important and potentially lucky Sunday. Talk, visit, travel or make a decision about one that has been a bit of a burden (or support!) for some years. You want to dive into the depths (sexual intimacy, ﬁnancial commitment, research, secrets, investments, big health change) Monday to Wednesday morning, but think ﬁrst. Wisdom and luck seldom go hand-inhand (ain’t that unfair, eh?) but both might combine Wednesday/Thursday. Still, major separative possibilities loom by Friday, so tread cautiously in law, love, education, international, career and family zones.

June 20 - 26
Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy will start growing soon! (Monday onward.) The four weeks ahead are your time to wield your clout, attract others, interview, ask favours, make major changes in direction and set important projects in motion. In all this, you will have to be more diplomatic than usual, especially this week – huge opportunities might face you, but they depend at least partly on the goodwill or co-operation of others. (If you’re an artist, writer, this –now through 2024 – is a time of potential fame.) Romantic atmosphere Monday/Tuesday. Those opportunities/oppositions Friday/Saturday.
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The weeks ahead (especially this one) brew a change in your living circumstances and your career or social position. To some degree, you have control over this, and can “play your hand” or attempt to squelch these changes. But consider: the forces of change will only grow stronger (and inevitable) over the next 14 years, and at present change represents a great opportunity for you, can bring bright new horizons in romance, marriage, relocation, contracts and partnerships – and fame! Talk/writing’s lucky Wednesday, but if you talk too much late week you could blow a deal.
Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The weeks ahead accent relationships, opportunities and oppositions. You could meet an exciting member of the opposite sex – he/she seems quite talkative, might be “ﬂustered” by events surrounding him/her. (This would indicate that marriage is not a good long-range possibility. Be aware.) You’re like a walking destiny ﬂag this week; you’ll come into people’s lives at critical junctures. Be diplomatic, humble, not withdrawn. Be ambitious Sunday. Hopes, happiness, bright horizons Monday/ Tuesday! Take a breather Wednesday p.m. to Friday eve. You shine, attract others, Saturday.
Taurus April 20-May 20: The month ahead brings short trips, communications, details, paper (computer) work, sibling visits – a busy but not hugely important time. However, events around you will be important. You went through your major life crises in the 1980s through early 2008. Others go through theirs now, especially Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. For you, these crises affect your communications and other secondary life activities. So make adjustments in these areas, especially Monday and Thursday/Friday. Relationships excite Monday/Tuesday. Sweet luck in intimacy, ﬁnances Wednesday!
Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Retreat. Rest, lie low, contemplate, avoid the spotlight while you do four things: catch up on neglected chores or government paperwork, plan, recharge your energy reserves, and re-connect with the spiritual realm. All these, as well as your work and health areas, face big changes this week, and generally to 2024. Realize ﬂexibility is sometimes a good thing. When we aren’t charitable toward others we destroy ourselves. Your social connections and your attitude toward romance are also changing – see brightness here. The delusions/ illusions of the past decade will disappear, very soon!
Scorpio Oct.23-Nov.21:This week features change – and difﬁcult relations with a Gemini or Virgo and/ or in communications, especially legal, publishing, intellectual or long-distance communications. Consider in these areas, that Gemini or Virgo is likely right, is ﬁghting your limitations (which makes you uneasy). The change is not central – you went through your main life struggles in the 1980s to mid-’90s. It affects four areas, in order of intensity: communications, siblings; background, government; work, health; and those areas ﬁrst listed (legal, publishing, etc.) and (gentle but deep) love areas.
Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Tackle chores over the few weeks ahead. It’s humdrum, but you might as well plunge in.You’re rather insulated from the big changes going on all around you. Still, this month, especially this week, might transform work, employment, health and your relations with institutions, the government or head ofﬁce. Listen to your hunches, to the spiritual side. You often ﬁnd Gemini romantic, Virgo sexy. This week, either someone in these signs has a lot of difﬁculty, or you have difﬁculty with him/her. Be patient. Sunday’s mellow. Friendship Wednesday/ Thursday. Retreat Saturday.
Gemini May 21-June 20: Read Taurus message – you, too, have largely gone through your life’s walk of ﬁre, and your future is growing more calm. But major changes still loom, now to 2024, in ﬁnances, sex and to 2017 in friendships, romance, sports, and creative or child-related zones. All these are strongly affected this summer, particularly this week. You probably won’t see ﬁreworks, but things are changing! Take the helm of your ship, especially Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Anyone who will not cooperate will never co-operate. Turn elsewhere. A big money change!
Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The four weeks ahead boost your popularity. The future will brighten, optimism will reign! The world has more problems than usual, all this spring/summer, but these intrigue you, you can ﬁnd opportunities “in the cracks.” Like Gemini, you’ve been through the main crises of your life, the last 12-15 years. It’s time to raise your sights – and your head! (Posture affects how others “handle” you.) A wish is likely to come true, could involve friendship or romance, creativity or children. Main accent all week: change in friendships and love. Be ready for it, respond, be happy!
Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The few weeks ahead accent life’s mysteries and depths – including sex, investments, debts, lifestyle commitments and major changes, and health. Your subconscious will ﬂoat to the surface, bring dreams, hunches. Pregnancy is possible for “eligibles.” Change will come to, or manifest via, these areas – and it will affect not only these zones, but also what (and whom) you possess, and what you earn. Dig deep, don’t be satisﬁed with surface answers. But also accept changes, especially in money, social and communications zones. Hard truths are true truths this week. Don’t invest – yet!
Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your passionate, romantic, love-oriented, creative, risk-taking side rises strongly over the next few weeks. You’ll ride a winning streak! But one you meet this week might not be a good marriage prospect. Your own marriage and/ or business partnerships might also face difﬁculties. The problem isn’t in the relationship, it involves work, health and similar practical difﬁculties (e.g., the army ships your mate out). A soul-deep, serious but blossoming change occurs this week in social connections and/or romance. Mysteries Sunday. Be ambitious Wednesday! Joy (sensual?) Saturday! firstname.lastname@example.org • Reading: 416-686-5014

Burnaby NOW • Saturday, June 19, 2010 • A41
Top throwers commit to Division II Clan Simon Fraser University made a couple of commitments to its track and field team last week. Canadian juvenile discus champion Del Ingvaldson and current B.C. high school girls’ discus champion Jade Richardson both announced their intentions June 8 to attend SFU this fall. Ingvaldson was hampered by a football injury this year and did not compete at the recent B.C. high school meet. He won the national juvenile title in 2009 with a toss of 50.20 metres. Both athletes felt the school’s move into the NCAA was a factor in helping them make a choice. “The fact that SFU is going to the NCAA was a major factor, the competition will be a lot better than in the CIS and I wanted to be in that environment on a regular basis for training,”
said Ingvaldson in a Clan press release. Richardson, who beat her rivals at the B.C.s by more than seven metres, agreed. “I’m planning on studying communications, and I think it’s a really exciting opportunity to be part of the first NCAA class at SFU,” said Richardson in the release. The SFU track and field team recently returned from the 2010 NAIA outdoor track and field championships in Marion, Indiana with two individual national champions, one national relay champion and 11 athletes achieving All-American status. SFU will officially become the first Canadian institution to join the NCAA Division II. The Clan will compete as a member of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference in the 2010/11 season.

finishing with a 16-5 playoff record after winning a league-record 60 games in the regular season. After dropping the first two games of the final series, Hershey rebounded in Game 3 with a 6-3 comeback
win. Alzner had two assists in the game as the Bears erased a 3-1 deficit with five unanswered goals in the final two periods. Alzner also drew a single assist on the 2-1 overtime winner against the Stars in Game 5 to take a 3-2 series lead.
The 21-year-old blueliner scored three goals and garnered 21 points in 56 games in the AHL this season. He was tied for fourth place in overall plus/minus with a plus-34. Alzner also played 21 games with the Capitals this season, tallying five assists.

Burrards beat Bandits in OT The Burnaby Burrards built up a fourpoint cushion atop the West Coast Senior Lacrosse Associaition standings with a big overtime win. The senior B Burrards defeated last year’s President’s Cup competitor, TriCity Bandits, 9-8 in extra time a the Bill Copeland Sports Centre Wednesday. Rob Brommer scored the game-winning tally with just nine seconds left in the overtime period. Tri-City started smartly taking a 3-1 lead after the first period and held a fourgoal advantage at one point before the Burrards rallied, drawing even at 6-6 at the end of the middle frame. The nailbiting went down to the final minute, when the visitors scored the goahead goal with 57 ticks left on the clock. But Burnaby’s Quinn Waddington
tied it up at 8-8 with his second goal of the night, sending the game to OT with Burrards’ goalie Kevin Hill on the bench for a sixth attacker. Hill made 33 stops for Burnaby. “Honestly, our guys just pulled together again,” said Burrards’ governor and general manager Shawn Joinson. “The last couple of games they’ve been down a few. But we’re more of a club, more of a team. We can pull through these kind of situations.” Junior Burnaby grad Chris Macey also tallied a pair of goals, while Cory Seigner, Justin Thomas, Spenser Joyce and Mike King also scored. Jonas Lewis chipped in with a three assists in the win. The victory improved the Burrards’ record to 10-1-0-0, four points up and two games in hand over second-place Ladner. Tri-City is a point back in third with a 72-0-1 record.
Young golfer to junior worlds Sumie François of Burnaby qualified for the Optimist International/Callaway junior World Golf Championships last weekend. François earned the berth after a runner-up finish to girls’ 10-year-old-and-under division winner Tiffany Kong of Vancouver, who shot a winning 59 score. François was just two strokes back, carding a 61. In third place was Cecile Kwon of Pitt Meadows, who shot a 64 total. Kong had already earned an exemption to this year’s junior world tournament, following a third-place finish at last year’s championship. François won a junior world championship golf title in San Diego, California, as an eight-year-old in 2008, carding a three-round, six-over-par score to hold off a hardcharging Chakansim Kambord of Thailand by a single stroke on the final day. This year’s junior world championships will be held the week of July 10 to 16 at the par-56, 2,400-yard Lomas Sante Fe executive golf course in Solana Beach, California.

Your insurer offers protection even when you travel! You’ve loaded the car and you’re off on vacation! You can relax because your insurance broker has you covered. Personal items, such as cameras, camping equipment, and other items that are covered by your home, condo or tenants insurance are also covered even when you take them with you on vacation. Home - based business items, however, require additional coverage, but at very little extra cost.
Protecting your home while vacationing
Because so many families take their vacations during June, July and August, these months are also the most popular months for burglary offences. In addition, power and freezer failures, as well as broken water heaters and pipes don’t go on vacation. Here are some tips to protect your home and valuables. Give a key to a trusted friend or neighbour so they can check inside the house every few days, take in the mail, turn on lights and open curtains periodically. In short, the house should be made to look lived-in. Have your lawn mowed during your absence. Disconnect the garage door opener. Lock the door between the garage and the house. Check that all other doors and windows are locked.
Saturday: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm
Bundle Your Home & Auto Insurance and Save!
Never hide a key anywhere outside. If you will be away from your home for fewer than 30 days you do not need to inform your insurer. However, you should still arrange for a competent person to look in on your home every day or two to make sure that everything is in good order.
For longer absences
If you are away for more than 30 days you should contact your insurance broker to determine whether you will need to inform your insurer. In all cases, you may want to arrange for a competent person to look in on your home every day to make sure that everything is in good order. Your insurance broker is your partner in protecting your home and your valuables, which makes for a stress-free vacation. It’s also a good idea to talk to them about your vacation needs, such as extended medical insurance when traveling outside the province or the country.
