Family seeks hope in Mexican hospital Local woman flying to Los Cabos for experimental surgery designed to stem the tide of multiple sclerosis Andrew Fleming staff reporter

Cindy Thompson would prefer not to be flying to Los Cabos with her husband this week. The 39-year-old Burnaby woman was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 1997 and now spends much of her time in a wheelchair. She is travelling south this week with the hope that a new experimental surgery currently not available in Canada will delay the advance of the debilitating disorder. “The heat really affects me, so going to Mexico at this time of year was not really my first choice, but the wait list at some of these places is just crazy,” said Thompson. “I saw this opportunity, and I jumped at it to get in right away.” The opportunity in question is to receive a controversial treatment based on new research that suggests MS is not an autoimmune condition, as previously thought, but instead may be caused by (or at least exacerbated by) a blockage in veins from the brain. Italian physician Paolo Zamboni named his recent medical discovery chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI), where narrowed or blocked veins force blood to move backwards into the central nervous system, causing damage. A small pilot study that inflated veins near patients’ heads has been shown to be successful in treating people with MS. “It’s basically just angioplasty,” explained Thompson. “They balloon the veins because they believe there are collapsed veins in 95 per cent of people with

MS.” The medical treatment still remains officially unproven, and more studies are underway to show how common CCSVI is in MS patients, as well as to explore its potential role as a major risk factor in MS. Thompson, however, isn’t willing to wait, saying it could be several years before the treatment is formally approved in Canada. She says that the procedure had previously been performed “three or four times in Victoria, and then they got shut down just a few months ago.” She said the surgery is also currently offered in Poland, Bulgaria, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Scotland and Costa Rica. Earlier this month, in an editorial published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, editor Dr. Paul Hébert and coauthor Dr. Matthew Stanbrook warned that medical decisions should be based on science, not hope, and argued that the controversy over immediate access to the pioneering treatment in Canada “illustrates how quickly news of promising scientific discoveries can create unrealistic expectations.” “They can hardly be blamed for this,” they wrote of people and their loved ones struggling with a disease that affects more than 50,000 Canadians, with three new cases diagnosed every day. “Understandably, they fear ongoing loss of function and premature death. But good policy decisions should not be based on hope and desperation.” While Thompson knows the pioneering surgery won’t come with any guarantees to cure her health problems, she said the $10,000 treatment is worth the investment even if it helps only a little bit. “They say even if you don’t notice many big changes, it should help stop the progression of the disease,” she said “We’re going into this thinking if I only notice one change, if it takes away my MS Page 10

City delegation checks out Portland blues fest Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Mayor Derek Corrigan and a group of city councillors, staff and Tourism Burnaby representatives have returned with a greater understanding of blues festivals in the U.S. The delegation attended the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, Oregon, from July 2 to 5, to gather ideas

for future Burnaby Blues and Roots festivals. “It was great,” Corrigan said. “We saw a different approach to a blues festival than in New Orleans.” The mayor and a group of city councillors attended the New Orleans Blues Festival last April. While the New Orleans festival was huge – held in the centre of a racetrack, Corrigan said – the Portland festival was more mod-















est, held alongside the river, with about 10,000 people on the busiest day. The Portland festival is financed very differently from the Burnaby festival, Corrigan said, as there are more corporate sponsors, including sponsors for individual acts, and the money raised is donated to the Portland Food Bank. The city does not have as much involvement there, he added.

Taj Mahal, Burnaby’s headliner this year, was also there, and the delegation saw acts they want to add next year, as well, Corrigan said. Councillors Nick Volkow and Paul McDonell, as well as city manager Bob Moncur and parks and recreation director Dave Ellenwood, were on hand to represent the city. They did not get to meet Portland’s politicians or staff, Corrigan said, as it was the Last week’s question Should the Evergreen Line get priority for transit funding?

– great news – and the jump was largely because the provincial government had enough foresight to increase the number of medical seats over the past few years. More seats means more doctors graduating. But adding more seats is a costly endeavour, and it takes several years before those students are ready to practise. B.C. has actively recruited doctors from other countries, the U.S and the U.K. for example, because it’s cheaper than paying for more medical seats.

Ideally, we should be raising our own doctors in B.C. and doing more to get the foreign-trained doctors who are already here into our system. And while expanding the number of medical seats further may be costly now, the long-term benefits include better health care for British Columbians, a crop of physicians more likely to stay here and less reliance on recruiting from abroad when many countries are struggling with their own doctor shortages.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR HST alliance not a threat for NDP

Dear Editor:

Re: Is Vander Zalm a threat to the NDP?, In my opinion, Keith Baldrey Burnaby NOW, June 30 Your notion that the NDP’s position as the official Opposition in B.C. would be threatened by the fact they agree with Bill Vander Zalm on the issue of the HST echoes the B.C. Liberal efforts to discredit both him and Carole James, dismissing them as “strange bedfellows” or “political opportunists.” What we see demonstrated here are people from both sides of the political fence viewing Campbell’s HST in the same light. This tax was announced by the B.C. Liberals almost immediately following the May 2009 B.C.

The NDP, 700,000 British Columbians and Vander Zalm are unified in their belief that the manner in which the B.C. Liberals imposed more taxes on British Columbians lacked fairness, transparency and democratic spirit. Logically the political fallout posed by an unprecedented unified opposition would threaten the B.C. Liberal party. To suggest the threat would be felt by the NDP is a bit of a stretch (or perhaps, spin?). This is a citizens’ initiative, as such, Carole James and the NDP have remained somewhat distant, and rightly so, as they likely would if and when

How to dispose of Metro Vancouver’s solid waste is a difficult question involving a number of Hobsonian choices. An idea favoured by many people is incineration. This has many advantages, including disposal close to source, thus avoiding burning fossil fuel required for transportation. However, there are nagging concerns, such as where do all the pollutants in the trash go? Into the atmosphere? Do they create any health hazard? Proponents point to the existing incinerator located in South Burnaby, which has operated for 20 years without apparently causing any problems. But again, is it really safe? Metro Vancouver had the opportunity to deal fairly and openly with this problem and should have openly reviewed and assessed all of the options. Instead it decided, without consultation, on the incinerator option and then sought to sell it to the people. A year ago, I attended a Metro Vancouver public information session on solid waste management. I was subjected to a propaganda lecture delivered by a panel of so-called experts who had obviously been selected because of their pro-incineration views. The result was to create suspicion and mistrust. I arrived thinking incineration might be a good idea and left wondering what they were trying to hide. I read that at least four municipalities have voiced opposition to the proposal, and I believe they represent the views of the people who appear to be overwhelmingly opposed. Metro Vancouver has only themselves to blame for this result. If they had acted fairly and openly in assessing the options instead of treating it as a public relations exercise, the results might have been very different.

Taxes: Tricks not good enough years. The government claims families will be better off with the HST because prices will go down over time – oh, except when government is doing the pricing. One example is the PST on liquor, which will fall from 10 to seven per cent under harmonization. Don’t raise your glass in celebration too soon, folks, because the govern-


What to do with our waste?


In the waning days of the last parliamentary session, our federal legislators came together to pass Bill C-311, a bill that would provide a comprehensive plan to reduce our country’s greenhouse gas emissions in the medium and long term, while leaving open to the government of the time how to proceed in a manner that will not be harmful to businesses and the economy. This bill would provide for scientifically backed reductions in our greenhouse gas emissions and was passed with the support of all three opposition parties. Yet now, this same bill languishes in the Senate, obstructed from even a vote by Conservative senators whipped into blocking the measure by a prime minister who was unable to prevent the bill’s passage in the House of Commons. Our elected representatives spoke in favour of passing this bill, and now the unelected members of the Senate are positioning themselves to block the agenda of the people from being implemented. It’s time for Conservative senators to make a choice: They can either block and obstruct a bill passed by the elected representatives of the people and show that they care more for party politics than for the good of the nation, or they can break out from the gaze of our prime minister and vote for this bill. Hopefully the good senators will decide that political progress

travel destination. But he said Burnaby is on track and doing quite well for a smaller festival. The Burnaby festival’s sponsorships as well as Tourism Burnaby’s marketing in travel markets, combined with the extended performance program introduced last year make the city’s blues festival comparable with those in larger destinations, Coyne said. This is Tourism Burnaby’s sixth year in partnership with the festival. The next step is increasing the Burnaby festival’s profile as a travel destination event, he said. According to Coyne, 33 per cent of attendees last year were from out of town. “It’s ideal for Burnaby,” he said. “It can be a real travel motivator.” Event layout, lineups, site organization,

Wondering why there are now sidewalks at the four curb corners of Lougheed Highway and Gaglardi Way? The four corners are part of a highway beautification project by the City of Burnaby to make the thoroughfare more welcoming, according to Lambert Chu, the city’s director of engineering. “It’s vibrant, different and also welcomes people to Burnaby,” Chu said. The project, which is almost completed, includes four wide sidewalk corners with a group of modern black light standards in a row on each corner. The lighting is not yet complete, he said, but the electrical work is done. Part of the project’s intended goal was to make access to Production Way SkyTrain station a little easier, Chu said, and the northwest corner of the new sidewalk connects to a bus stop. The area was “not totally pedestrianfriendly before,” he explained, adding that students walk in that area to access nearby Burnaby Mountain Secondary or to take the buses up to Simon Fraser University. “There is a fair amount of pedestrian

volume at certain times of the day,” Chu said. However, one Burnaby NOW reader wrote in to complain about the project, pointing out that only two of the eight ends of the corner sidewalks connect with anything. As the project nears completion, three of the four corners connect either to sidewalks or bus stop areas. Only one corner is disconnected. “If you are wondering why your taxes went up at two times the rate of inflation, this would be one of the reasons,” Rick Fisher wrote in an e-mail to the NOW. Fisher could not be reached for a followup interview. Burnaby spent $546,105 on Production Way station-related roadwork and $106,850 on pedestrian-related access to the station, under the City of Burnaby’s 2009 provisional capital program. The total budget for roadwork done by the engineering department on Lougheed Highway in 2009 was $2.85 million and $1.5 million for 2010. The installation is Phase 1 of a beautification project for Lougheed Highway, according to Chu.

Community chips in for bike fair


Jennifer Moreau

ocal mom Tammy Ozero wants to thank everyone who helped with her annual community bike fair. This year, more than 300 people showed up for a day of bike-related kids’ activities. There was an obstacle course, a race, bike decorating and live entertainment. Ozero wants to thank the many volunteers who helped and the Guilt Free Party and the Second Street Funk Band – two groups that volunteered to play for the crowds. Edmonds Cycle helped with complementary bike repairs and helmet adjustments. Trials Stars performed bike tricks, Cap’s Bicycle Shop helped design the obstacle course, and the Burnaby parks department did some face painting. The Burnaby chapter of the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition set up an info table, and Bryson Davies

School days

School’s out for summer, sort of. It may be summer, but Burnaby schools are still open for classes. Summer session started for secondary students July 5 and elementary students on July 6. As district spokesperson Jodie Wilson pointed out, many students who enrol in summer session are not repeating failed classes. They are kids getting a head start by taking next year’s courses early. As for next September, if parents have not yet enrolled their kids for school, they have to wait till the last week of

Helping charities help others

The South Burnaby Elks Lodge No. 497 and the South Burnaby Royal Purple Lodge No. 260 recently donated $26,000 to seven charities. The money went to the Burnaby Hospital Foundation, the Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children, the Elks Hearing Resource Centre, the Elks Children’s Camps, the B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation, the Edmonds Community School and the Canadian Cancer Society, B.C. and Yukon Division. The Elks and Royal Purple Lodges are fraternal charitable organizations that have been operating in Burnaby for more than 50 years. Their main objective is to detect deafness in children and assist children in need. Both group are welcoming new members. To get involved, call Colin at 604-599-1282.

Searching for lost relatives

Brian Tucker of Birmingham, England is appealing to Burnaby resi-

dents to help find information on one of his relatives. Gordon Algar McRae lived in Burnaby in the 1950s. He was born on July 7, 1882, in Glengarry, Ont., and died Aug. 6, 1965 at age 83. Tucker writes that there is no trace of his death in B.C.’s archives. “I have recently discovered a letter written by him in 1956 from an address at 4295 Moscrop St., S. Burnaby, B.C., and that is the only trace of him since census on 1916 in Alberta,” Tucker writes. If anyone has information on McRae, please e-mail Tucker at brian.

Healthy growth: Jayden Lindsey was seen digging in the dirt as Burnaby Family

Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Burnaby Family Life celebrated a very special dedication of a new garden at Burnaby South Secondary’s child-care centre recently. “It was fabulous, absolutely fabulous,” said Jeanne Fike, executive director of the non-profit organization. The garden was dedicated to Shainal Hussein, a woman who slain by her husband about seven years ago. She was an employee with Burnaby Family Life and worked in the daycare. Hussein’s family members were guests of honour at the dedication. The daycare watches over babies whose young moms attend a specialized program at Burnaby South Secondary. The daycare garden is the first of its kind in Burnaby. The idea

is the moms will tend the garden while learning how to grow healthy, fresh food. The dedication was on June 28. Fike also pointed out the people who helped

make the project possible: the Burnaby firefighters, Vancity, Selina Pirmohamed and Karen Rohwedder all helped by donating time, money or expertise.

Gardening tips for July GREEN SCENE Anne Marrison


or people gardening with annual flowers, July is a peaceful month involving little more than watering and doing deadheading to keep blooms coming. Geraniums, marigolds, sweet peas and dahlias need the most frequent attention. Big, double annual flower-heads usually fall apart after rain and will attract slugs if not deadheaded. Hanging baskets are usually the first containers to dry right out. Watering them aloft won’t work because dry soil shrinks away from the side of the pot, making a circular channel that water floods through. But dunking hanging baskets deeply in a laundry tub, sink or big pan of water for a couple of hours will bring them back to normal. This works with standing containers too – provided they’re big

enough to lift. People with perennial gardens can find extra things to do. Late July is a good time to divide and replant bearded irises before they grow into a thick, matted clump with few flowers. Some perennials, like lupins and the tall cranesbills will rebloom in early fall if the faded flowers are sheared back. Removing seed heads from large rhododendrons is very hard work and is really only done in situations and with people who want them to look good at all times. With small or new rhododendrons, deadheading is quite do-able and may give them a little more energy for growth. All the long-blooming roses need deadheading a few inches down to a large leaf. This should be on the outside of the stem. If the mid part of a rose bush gets overcrowded, fungal diseases thrive there. Any time you start watering, try to include the roses. They like a lot of water. When rose leaves have semi-circular holes, that’s good news for the garden because it means you have leaf-cutter bees. These are useful pollinators that

work later into the summer than mason bees. The tiny, striped wasps are also good pollinators. The big yellow-jacket wasps are a scary nuisance that need to be removed if they have nests around doors or windows or in the ground. But yellow-jackets are also good pest-controllers and some gardeners leave nests if they’re in non-threatening places. People with wisteria will need to do some afterflowering pruning by cutting the new stems back to three or four buds. As always, ivy needs to be watched to prevent it venturing where it’s not wanted. Variegated ivies should have green reverted shoots taken out right away. In the vegetable garden, green onions and winter beets can still be planted. A lot of gardeners had problems with peas this year. Peas can be planted up to mid-July for a fall harvest. Right now, garlic is producing curly stalks with embryonic, wispy heads of bulbils. When young, these can be cut up and used in stir-fry dishes. Send gardening questions to

Everyone deserves empathy, love and respect HEALTHWISE

Dr. Davidicus Wong


n an ideal world, each infant would be born – accepted, valued and loved just as it is – a completely unique and naturally beautiful manifestation of nature, of chance or luck or destiny, of karma, of the transcendent or of the divine. In an ideal family, parents would be ready to accept the gift of their children – random or destined fusions of their genes and personalities – and the responsibility to nurture an abiding sense of selfworth: the conviction that they are worthy of love because they are loved just as they are – perfect

in their imperfection, accepted and cherished, in spite of their stumbles and falls, and respected just for being human. In an ideal society, no child would be marginalized or objectified on the basis of her gender, race, language, culture, religion, education, social status, hair colour, height or body type. She would not be judged by her physical appearance but seen as a complete person deserving of respect, love and freedom. In ideal relationships, we would recognize the inherent value, beauty and unique emotional experiences of the other. We would treat the other with the respect and compassion we ourselves deserve. We would recognize our connection to one another, our mutual dependence and vulnerability, and the synergy of our union.

In an ideal society, each person would feel connected, valued and safe. We would no longer have victims and aggressors, the abused and their abusers. We would all be free and safe – free to live and express the best of our selves without fear of ridicule, emotional or physical abuse, physical and sexual assault, or social aggression. In an ideal universe, we would all experience the love that we each need and deserve. We would recognize our own self-worth, love ourselves and live good lives in accordance with our deepest values. But we do not live in an ideal world. Most of us live our lives in search of happiness, and for many the root of our unhappiness is a shattered sense of self-worth.

We are social beings. We are all interconnected. We define our individual sense of self-worth in relationship to others. We share responsibility for nurturing and healing selfworth in ourselves and in others. We can help our friends retell their traumatic life stories, redefine their selfconcepts with compassion, patience and love. As parents, we can ensure that what we do and what we say to our children creates rather than diminishes an abiding sense of self-worth. And in our relationships and in our interactions with one another, we can treat the other with the same empathy, respect and love that each of us deserve. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician.

Fox named to Order of Canada Burnaby native Michael J. Fox was among 74 Canadians who were appointed to the Order of Canada on June 30 by Gov. Gen. Michaëlle Jean. The order is the country’s highest civilian honour for lifetime achievement. Fox was named an officer “for his advocacy work for Parkinson’s disease and his career as an actor in film and on television.” There are three different levels of membership to the order: companion, officer and member. Someone is named an officer for outstanding lifetime achievement of “a high degree.” Other familiar names on Jean’s list

include Vancouver 2010 Olympics CEO John Furlong, astronaut Julie Payette, author Gwynne Dyer and former federal environment minister David Anderson. The Order of Canada was established in 1967, and any Canadian may be nominated, except for federal and provincial politicians or judges, who cannot receive an appointment while in office. Recipients will be invited to accept their insignia at a ceremony to be held at a later date, the office of the governor general said in a news release. Visit for a complete list of those appointed to the order this year.

Mazda’s MX-5 a pricey joy to drive and own David Chao

contributing writer


n case you haven’t noticed, we’re running low on affordable, twoseat convertibles. Honda retired the aging S2000 last fall, and the disappointing Chrysler Crossfire, Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Skye roadsters are long gone. In the $30,000 range there’s the Ford Mustang, MINI Cooper, Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder and Volkswagen’s Eos and New Beetle con-

vertibles, all of which are four-seat vehicles. If you want a two-seater there’s the BMW Z4, Infiniti G37, Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, Nissan 370Z, and Porsche Boxster convertibles, but none of those can be considered “affordable.” So it’s a very good thing that we have the Mazda MX-5. Now in its 21st year and third generation, the MX-5 is the best-selling roadster in history, with well over one million units

produced since 1989. It’s the benchmark for a funto-drive roadster – the aforementioned Chrysler and GM products all fell short when held up next to it – and, with the optional hard-top roof, is capable of taking on more-expensive counterparts at a fraction of their prices. There are, in short, few cars as satisfying to own and drive as an MX-5 – and there’s an excellent reason for that. Mazda is considered by many to be the most

performance-oriented Japanese automaker, because its vehicles tend to emphasize driving prowess over ride quality. However, it’s more accurate to say that Mazda is the “sportiest” of automakers, favouring sharp handling and quick reflexes over big, powerful engines. This is what the “Zoom Zoom” philosophy is all about, and no car embodies that better

than the MX-5. As a result, the little roadster is a joy to drive whether you’re heading to the office or to the cottage. It’s designed, built and priced with the sole purpose of bringing owners maximum happiness and minimal regret. And in 21 years, Mazda has never lost sight of that simple goal. There’s really only one thing to be concerned about with the 2010 MX-5,

and that’s the pricing strategy. When Mazda introduced the current model in 2006, it maxed out at $34,500. When the fantastic, power-retractable hard top arrived in 2007, Mazda made it an option across the range so that owners had their choice of trim level and roof – a loaded GT was still $34,500 and the hard top added $2,200.

MOTORING Style: Design well-rounded continued from page 25

Today, the hard top is standard on the GT, optional on the mid-level GS, and unavailable for the base GX – and that GT model sells for a heady $39,995. At $40,000 the MX-5 GT isn’t quite as satisfying to own as it once was, but we’re not complaining. Even if there were more direct competitors in the market, the MX-5 would still beat them all.


The MX-5 received a facelift last year, gaining a revised front end with new headlamps and a larger grille similar to that found on newer Mazda vehicles, as well as new side skirts, rear bumper, and tail lights. The designers have done a great job, keeping the smooth and rounded shape while lessening the pill-shaped profile of the 2008 model. The manual-folding top remains a strength of the MX-5. It’s exceptionally easy to raise and lower,

and it does away with the annoying tonneau cover. When the top is down, it folds in on itself quite stylishly, looking very finished and minimizing drag. The power hardtop looks great when stowed, folding in on itself to give the car a clean and finished appearance, but the unusual bulge of the rear deck (a necessity to fit the roof) looks a bit odd both when the roof is raised and lowered. If top-up style is important to you, the cloth roof might be more desirable. There’s nothing too fancy about the cockpit, which wraps around you the way a roadster should. GX and GS models feature a plain, black interior, while the GT can be had with a choice of black, beige or brown leather. Overall, it’s a pleasing interior that’s simple, straightforward and wellexecuted.


a 2.0 l inline-four generating 167-hp and 140 lb.-ft. of torque, attached to a five-speed (GX) or sixspeed manual transmission (a six-speed automatic is optional across the line). The engine is just right for this car – it’s as happy to cruise as it is to accelerate. As with most Mazda transmissions, the sixspeed manual is absolutely fantastic. It’s quick and accurate, with a nice, light clutch that invites gear changes. With excellent steering and balanced weight distribution, handling is exceptional. The speedsensitive steering is sharp, but not so much that it’s awkward to drive – this is a truly fun-to-drive car. Interestingly, the extra weight added by the power-retractable hardtop improves the balance, adding weight just aft of the car’s centre. Whereas the GX is more relaxed, the GS and GT add a limited-slip differential, dynamic stability

MOTORING Performance: Engine just right for acceleration, cruising as it’s going to get in a roadster, with the usual spaces in the glove box, centre console and behind the seats, as well as four cupholders. The trunk is impressive in that it will just fit a set of golf clubs, but it’s still a tight fit for larger luggage. There’s no question that the hardtop MX-5 is quieter and feels sturdier than the soft-top version; it feels just like a regular coupe until you throw the latch and press the button to lower the lid.

continued from page 26

control with traction control, front strut tower bar and a sport suspension. Drivers looking to toss the MX-5 around should definitely opt for one of the upper trims.


The dash is simple and functional – dials and buttons are big, easy to find and offer good tactile feel. The steering-mounted audio controls seem a bit superfluous, considering that the dashboard is so close, but prevent drivers from having to hunt for buttons. Storage space is as good


A bare-bones GX model starts at $28,995, and the only option (aside from

an automatic transmission) is air conditioning. The $33,495 GS offers the choice of a soft top or the $2,295 hard top, and the $39,995 GT comes with everything. Standard features on the mid-level GS include ABS, automatic A/C, fourspeaker CD/MP3 stereo, cruise control, tilt steering, remote keyless entry, limited-slip differential, Dynamic Stability Control with traction control, front strut tower bar, sport suspension and front/side airbags. The top-end GT adds Xenon headlamps, leather interior accents, BOSE seven-speaker audio sys-

tem, Bluetooth, keyless entry and starter, and heated front seats. Fuel economy is rated at 9.2 l/100 kilometres in the city and 7.1 l/100 km on the highway for the base GX with a five-speed manual transmission.

Thumbs up

Attractive exterior; funloving performance; choice of two excellent tops.

Thumbs down

GT model is pricey and GX is too bare.

Beginner golfer slices way to record Rare double-eagle ace came in just eighth golf game Tom Berridge sports editor

When it comes to beginner’s luck, no one is feeling luckier than Cory Scott. The 29-year-old New Westminster resident scored a hole-in-one on the 18th hole at Burnaby Mountain Golf Course in the fading light of an early Friday, July 2 evening. What makes the feat special is it was just the eighth-ever game of golf for the beginner. But it gets better. The final hole on the 6,211 yard north Burnaby course is a difficult parfour 340-yarder with a dogleg to the right flanked by high trees. Wes Hastings, a golf services associate at Burnaby Mountain for the past six years, said records kept at the links show 16 holes in one have been officially recorded since 2008, but none of them were ever longer than a par 3. “Holes in one happening on a par-four are very rare, I can tell you,” said Hastings. And facts online appear to back up the claim. Odds differ but most sources agree that for an average golfer the chances of holing out in one stroke is approximately a one-in12,000 shot. But when you factor in distance and go beyond a par-3, the percentages go up – way up.

Once in a lifetime: Cory Scott, right, and golfing partner and mentor Carl Howard, still can’t believe the hole-in-one they had a part in at Burnaby Mountain Golf Course on July 2. Getting a golf ball into the tiny cup in three strokes under par is called a double-eagle, or albatross to the British. To make a double-eagle requires acing a par-4 or scoring a two on a par-5, both are much rarer than a hole-in-one sources suggest. Golf World magazine quoted Dean Knuth, inventor of the U.S. Golf Association’s slope rating system, as putting the feat

at one million to one. According to Golf World 631 aces were shot on the pro golfer’s tour in a 20year span from 1983 to 2003, but just 56 doubleeagles. The article went on to say while approximately 40,000 aces are recorded each year in the U.S., in comparison only a couple of hundred double-eagles are reported. With the light of a Friday evening fading,

Scott teed up for the final hole of his sunset round at Burnaby Mountain and sliced the ball high into the trees. Carl Howard, Scott’s golfing mentor and one of the foursome who witnessed the event continues the story. “Cory saw his ball going very right. It was into the trees and we thought it was lost. So Cory went and played on, hitting a second ball,” said Howard, who

initially had enticed Scott to join the foursome, which also included Shane Polak and Clayton Hornby. “When we got on the green and (Scott) discovered it in the cup, he said ‘Hey that’s mine from the tee.’ It obviously went over the trees and onto the green in one shot.” Howard has enjoyed the feeling of scoring an albatross once before in Golf Page 32

Canada to defend title at world field champs Kevin Crowley has been added to Canada’s 24-man roster for the World lacrosse championships in Manchester, England July 10 to 24. The 21-year-old midfielder on Canada’s 2008 world junior team was a late addition to the defending champions. The 6-4 Crowley had a standout year in the field game at Stony Brook University this season, scoring a single-season record 51 goals in 17 games as a junior with the Seawolves. Following the NCAA Division I national championships, Crowley was named the intercollegiate player of the year and was also a finalist for the Tewaarton trophy and a unanimous America East player of the year. He is also the

only Stony Brook player to be in the top five in both goals, with 101, and assists, with 75. “Being recognized as one of five finalists for the Tewaarton Trophy that goes to the NCAA’s top lacrosse player in his junior year says a lot about Kevin Crowley,” said Canada’s national team executive director Dean French in a press release. Crowley will join New Westminster Salmonbellies’ Jordan Hall in Canada’s midfield. Also on the national squad are New Westminster defender Curtis Manning and Burnaby’s Matt Brown on attack. Brown currently plays for the Denver Outlaws in pro Major League Lacrosse. Stony Brook teammate Jordan McBride is a non-travelling mem-

ber on team Canada. Burnaby Laker junior Brian Gillis will be playing for the Republic of Ireland national team at the upcoming world championships. Gillis is eligible to play by virtue of his Irish grandparents on his father’s side.

Three Burnaby Lakers who were recently traded to the junior A Coquitlam Adanacs took little time to prove their worth. Riley Loewen, Nick Bilic and goalie Brodie MacDonald all figured in the defending B.C. Junior Lacrosse League champions final two regular season games. Loewen scored four goals and three assists in the two matches,

including the team’s opening goal and a game-high five points in the A’s 15-7 win over Nanaimo on Tuesday. He also potted a pair of tallies in a 12-7 victory over league runner-up New Westminster in the regular season finale on Wednesday. MacDonald backstopped the win against Nanaimo, stopping 25 shots in goal. Bilic had an assist in both wins for Coquitlam, including a helper on a shorthanded marker by Tor Reinholdt in the victory over Nanaimo. The Burnaby Lakers open their first-round, best-of-three playoff against the Delta Islanders on Saturday. The two teams are back at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Sunday at 7 p.m.

Burnaby judokas win silver at Jr. nats Ashley Bartlett and Dimitri Kim brought back silver medals from the Canadian junior judo championships to their Burnaby dojo. Bartlett placed runner-up to Marie-Eve De Villers-Matte of Quebec by ippon, or victory in a single move, in the under-20 junior under-70 kilogram girls’ gold-medal final in Lethbridge, Alta. Sunday. Bartlett, a Moscrop Secondary grad, won her two earlier matches both by ippon, including a win in the semifinal over eventual bronze medallist Alix Renaud-Roy of Quebec. Kim won his first three matches at under-60 kg before losing by ippon to champion Dominique Cote of Quebec in the u-20 junior men’s final. The Burnaby Judo Club, which trains out of Bonsor rec centre, also placed three other fighters at the junior men’s nationals. Cohen Hocking won his first two bouts at under-66 kg, but was finally knocked out in the semifinal of the consolation bracket. Dimitry Yamschykov lost his first-round bout at under-81 kg but fought his way back to the consolation semifinals before bowing out. Ko Shinjo was defeated in the second round at under-90 kg in the junior men’s division. Gabriela De Sousa of Burnaby also did well, making it to the third round of the consolation in the u-20 women’s under-57 kg division. In the cadet men’s under-17 division, Anil Kumar placed fifth following a loss in the consolation semi at under-55 kg. Majit Samazov and Jhulianne Romero both finished in fifth spot in their respective u-15 juvenile age categories. Samazov placed in the men’s under60 kg group, while Romero contested the women’s under-48 kg weight class. Cole Heigel-Kerr of Burnaby lost two judge’s decisions at under-66 kg.

Natasha Wodak of Burnaby earned a spot on the podium at the 2010 Harry Jerome International Track Classic at Swangard Stadium Monday.

Kyle Nielsen of New Westminster placed second with a throw of 73.04m, more than three metres behind winner Sean Furey of the U.S. Helen Crofts and Rebecca Johnstone of Simon Fraser University finished third and fifth, respectively, in the invitational women’s 800m.

Still unbeaten:

Vancouver Whitecaps Melissa Tancredi, right, scored a goal in a 2-2 draw against the Colorado Rush in a battle between the two undefeated Western Conference W-League soccer teams at Swangard Stadium on Saturday.

Burnaby Mountain grad Whitney Rowe was fifth in the women’s 100m dash in a time of 12.45. One of the highlights of the meet was a record in the shot put by Kamloops product Dylan Armstrong.

Four more meets

The popular Hershey Harriers all-comers meets will finish up this season’s competitions with four meets in Burnaby.

Burnaby striker sets pro league record Christine Sinclair scored her fifth goal of the Women’s Professional Soccer league in a 4-0 win over the Atlanta Beat last week. Sinclair opened the scoring for the first-place FC Gold Pride in the

first minute of the July 3 contest. Sinclair’s goal in the opening minute established a new WPS record as the fastest goal in league history. Earlier, Sinclair scored a goal and Gold Pride teammate Marta regis-

tered a hat trick to lead their team to a 5-2 win over Team Wambach in the pro league’s annual all-star game on July 1. The Gold Pride currently lead the pro league with a record of 8-3-1.

More bad luck for Daytona driver

Bad luck reared its ugly head once again for Burnaby sports car driver Michael Valiante at Daytona Beach, Florida on the July 4 holiday weekend. Valiante, who was in the cockpit of the No. 6 Michael Shank Racing Ford Dallara car, was

forced out of Grand-Am Rolex Series Brumos 250 sports car race at Daytona International Speedway following a problem with the car’s halfshaft on the 58th lap. The Shank team’s sister car driven by Ozzi Negri and John Pew finished on the podium for a second

straight race, placing third in their Ford Riley. Valiante’s co-driver Brian Frisselle qualified the No. 6 car in fourth place and led the race for 12 laps before being forced to pit for a new set of tire rubber and a driver change. Last month, Valiante

was in the cockpit of the Shank No. 6 Ford Riley chassis when it was destroyed in a fire during a race at Watkins Glen, New York. The Shank team is back in action when the Rolex series commences at the New Jersey Motorsports Park 250 on July 18.

Golf: Pro says it’s a very difficult hole continued from page 29

his 20 years of golf, once scoring a two on a par-5 hole at Fraserview with a 210-yard approach shot. “But I was aiming at the hole,” he said. Prior to the game, Howard had given Scott two marked practice balls – both Top Flite Excel No. 3s with a black circle marker on them. Scott had lost one of them earlier in the round but managed to keep the second one for the last six holes, leading up to the 18th. Scott picks up the incredible story. “I can hit straight, but I’m learning. It does slice usually,” Scott said. “I had to drop another ball, and I laid it up on the green. I went over to move my ball and pull the flag, and as I looked down there’s a ball in the frickin’ hole. I picked the ball out and I saw my ball with the black circle marker. Did I ever jump about 15 feet in the air. “Holy S##t, that’s my ball.” By the time the foursome signed their scorecards, left the Burnaby Mountain pro shop and finished telling and retelling the events of that evening to every passer-by, it was dark outside. But the events of that evening will no

doubt be sticking with Scott for a long time to come. “It was awesome. I was pretty pumped up all weekend – still am. It’s pretty hard to believe,” Scott said. “I love it. It’s an awesome sport. I’m going to stick with this. I’m even thinking of taking a few lessons.” Don Mark, head professional at the Burnaby Mountain course, might be just the guy to show his form to. Mark said he would be interested to see Scott’s swing. “I’m not saying he didn’t do it, but I would have to see him hit a golf ball to see how far he can hit it, because it’s a long way,” Mark said of the course’s 18th hole. “I played (the hole) yesterday, and I was 290 yards, and I hit it pretty good.” Mark explained the fairway on the 18th hole at Burnaby Mountain is 200 yards past a stand of trees approximately 50 to 60 feet high. It then takes an extreme right turn and another 150 yards to the green that is protected by a sand trap in front. Mark added that the incredible ace on a very difficult hole would be the first holein-one on the 18th at Burnaby Mountain in the nine years he has been head pro at the course.

June 26, 1942 – June 24, 2010 It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Maureen in her 67th year. Born in Camrose, Alberta, Maureen moved to Burnaby, BC where she attended Edmonds Elementary School, Burnaby South & Central High Schools, before graduating from the Essondale School of Psychiatric Nursing. She later went on to have a successful career as a realtor in the New Westminster, Burnaby and Coquitlam areas. Maureen enjoyed an active lifestyle, as well as gardening, and treasured her time with family and friends. Maureen’s greatest joy was being grandma to her seven grandchildren, who knew her as their “Momee”. She will be remembered by all those who knew her as a hardworking, loving lady, with a wonderful smile. Maureen will be missed by her sisters, Cheryl and Judy (Richard), her three children, Christina (Randy), Angela (Paul) and Aaron (Kim), and her seven grandchildren – Brittany, Kyle, Emily, Benjamin, Makena, Summer, and Lilah. She was predeceased by her mother, Mildred, father, George, and step-mother, Grace. A heartfelt thank you is given to the staff at Buchanan Lodge, who showed Maureen great love and compassion, and to her wonderful care companions, Vikki and Christina, who brightened Maureen’s days. A celebration of life to honor Maureen will be held on Friday, July 16 at 10:30 a.m. at Buchanan Lodge, 409 Blair Avenue, New Westminster. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Maureen’s memory to The Salvation Army (

CAREER COACH How to Feel Secure in Insecure Times





BEST Deal Restwell Matt Sets. Full wrty, Dble $319. Queen $339 King $559. Will deliver. 722-3636


This article is by Chris Newell, Career Coach Chris Newell and Facilitator with Transitions Career & Business Consultants. "May you live in interesting times" is reputed to be an ancient Chinese Proverb, and has been quoted by real and fictional figures throughout history. To me, this would suggest that people from each time will inevitably find events and situations to be interesting in some way. Today, we are experiencing our own "interesting time" with events in the world concerning technology, the environment, and the economy. Certainly what I witness most are people trying to make sense of today's world of work, which is so demanding and competitive and has contributed to feelings of frustration and overwhelm. There are many people with talent, skills and knowledge who are unemployed, and this situation can definitely dissolve their sense of purpose and confidence. I see this regularly in our program, where I connect with amazing people who are trying to regain their sense of hope and self. However, during these "times" it's important not to spend too much time alone, as internalizing doubts and fears can just exacerbate them. Reach out for support and find others who can empathise and understand you. It could be your friends or family; a program such as ours; or some other group, as long as you feel they are people you can trust. Call 604-681-2774 and ask about the Transitions Program, our government funded (no fee) three-week career exploration program available to anyone who is unemployed or under employed and eligible to work in Canada.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent continues on hibernation, home, rest, security, kids, nature, gardening, domestic repairs and on ending stale or unworkable projects, relationships or situations. This week is a cakewalk compared to the last seven days. Almost everything flows smoothly, and the only possible contention arises Friday as you navigate an important relationship. One good thing about this day: you see clearly what you’re up against. Otherwise, Sunday’s great for domestic matters. A love affair is in the air Sunday-Tuesday. A career or work matter succeeds splendidly Tuesday-Thursday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy and charisma ride a beautiful wave. Take advantage, start important projects, see and impress people, ask favours, make your bid – climb to the top of the heap! Your recent mild money luck has ebbed but there will be lots of talk, activity around money. You’ve been in communication mode in your career; now to early August, a graciousness and affection joins in. It’s a perfect time to chat up a boss, confer with colleagues, etc. A favourite sibling might call. This entire week is easy, smooth, productive – except Friday (be diplomatic). Home, nature best Saturday.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This easy, productive week features career, ambition, prestige, dealings with higher-ups or authority figures (especially Sunday). Remember, this zone needs selflessness, caution and good morals through next March. If you think, “I’ll get away with this” – don’t do it, for your own sake! That said, proceed. If you’re stymied, “default” to security, family property concerns. (A mild “destiny luck” aids you in these, early week.) Your hopes and popularity rise Monday/Tuesday – get out, accept happiness! Rest, contemplate, plan mid-week. Your energy surges Friday/Saturday – diplomacy!

Taurus April 20-May 20: This is an easy, friendly, travel-prone week, Taurus. A great time to meet, talk, tackle paperwork, upgrade or buy a computer or telephony system. Sunday might begin a new project in these areas. Be restful, domestic Monday/ Tuesday, repair the stairs, cook, garden, take charge of future security for yourself and/or the kids. Oddly, on your friendly day (Sunday) secrets, solitude and domesticity are favoured; yet on your “relax at home” days (Monday/Tuesday) a new love might begin. Expect complex but fruitful “combinations.” Romance, pleasure, “happy risks” arrive Wednesday/ Thursday.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Rest, lie low and study your progress, Leo – especially Sunday. Solitude is a blessing all week, it allows you the time to accomplish some important background tasks. Friday is the only “caution day” this week (be careful with your speech to others, and avoid legal, romantic, relationship and similar forays until early afternoon). So use this time to engage the government, institutions, head offices, to reconnect with your spiritual side, to research, and to plan future action. Educational, legal, cultural, money and work matters are favoured Monday to Thursday. Travel, read Saturday.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: A sweet, mellow week! You understand what puzzled you before. You feel compassionate, you sense why society works, and what life is. Gentle, passionate love is possible (only possible: big passion begins 2011 onward). Culture, social rites, education, publishing, international travel/ contacts, intellectual pursuits are favoured, especially Sunday. Chase career, prestige Monday/Tuesday. You feel upbeat, optimistic, popular and a bit flirtatious Wednesday/Thursday! Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan Friday/Saturday: an ambitious month starts soon. Caution, Friday to early p.m.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Popularity, light romance, optimism, bright new horizons and urges about the future – these bless your days now. Sunday is significant – a new social (or organizational) contact, idea, or project might start. Your energy ebbs a bit Monday/Tuesday, so rest, enjoy a quiet breather. Contemplate and plan. Your energy and charisma surge upward Wednesday/Thursday – throw off your usual shyness, respond to someone’s “opening gesture,” seek friends, romance, love, intimacy, new financial horizons. You’re noticed! Take care with money, don’t risk it, Friday daytime. This eve and Saturday, chase it.

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Life’s mysteries and depths (sex, finance, mutual resources, loyalty/ betrayal, dreams, subconscious, critical health, commitments and consequences) – these remain front and centre, but not in any dire way. In fact, this is a week of success, smooth progress and gratifying results! So charge forward, invest, re-arrange debt, seek intimacy, grab funding, research, listen to your hunches. (Notice the phrase “mutual resources” – it means that whatever you do involves another in some way. E.g., an inheritance is “their money” until you get it.) Exercise caution Friday to mid-afternoon. You end happy!

Gemini May 21-June 20: The accent lies on money, earnings, buying, selling, memory, rote learning. Memorizing something, perhaps a big, complex thing, could aid you in future. This week flows smoothly. Sunday might trigger a new money project or idea. Travel, talk, errands fill a busy, happy Monday/ Tuesday. Something involving real estate, home, kids, finances, debt, security, investment or sex/pregnancy follows a “lucky road” – travel it. These matters are also blessed Wednesday/Thursday, but more on the home, “staying put” side. Romance, pleasure call Friday onward – wait until Friday eve, Saturday.

July 11 - 17 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Relationships remain important. A new one might begin Sunday. This is a great,harmonious week,perfect for mending fences and deepening happy links.A sweet nectar of understanding helps you see others’ positions. Monday/Tuesday bring depths, intimacy, financial commitments, investments, secrets. Bonds deepen (or break – unlikely). Gentle love flows Wednesday/Thursday. Success indicated in cultural, intellectual, international, legal zones. Be ambitious Friday/Saturday, but take some care Friday to about 2 p.m., when opposition or surprises could occur. All week, seal a deal! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Chores, chores, chores – get ’em done during this easy, productive week. It’s a splendid time to check your health, start exercise or health regimens, look for a new doctor, repair anything from stairs to computers, handle employment/ employee matters, hire service personnel, and/or buy tools and equipment, from a blender to a backhoe. Be a little wary in romance, career and health the first 14 hours of Friday. Otherwise, charge forth! Relationships are an opportunity Monday/Tuesday. Secrets, research, large money Wednesday/Thursday. Romantic notions, pleasure Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Chase romance, creative accomplishment, pleasure, beauty, sports and speculation. Your luck runs high during this smooth, easy week. Woo someone, especially Sunday and Wednesday/Thursday. Responses will be affectionate, gentle (even if you’re rejected). Wednesday/Thursday also feature opportunities, new horizons, the possibility of relocation, negotiation, agreements.Take care Friday to 2 p.m. – a financial, and/or an intimate opportunity appears, but it does not “fit” your future. After this, through Saturday, move a relationship deeper, research, or clinch a financial action. • Reading: 416-686-5014
