Doing laps for babies Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Burnaby lifeguard Elise Niessen is planning a four-hour stretch of laps in the pool to raise money for babies born premature or with serious health conditions. Inspired by her cousin’s baby, who was born with holes in her heart, Niessen decided to do something to help. “She’s my inspiration,” said Niessen. “What better way to support our community than by helping out the next generation – all the little babies that are born premature.” The 27-year-old is planning to swim, for four hours straight, on Friday Aug.13, from noon to 4 p.m. at Canada Games Pool in New Westminster. Niessen is hoping to raise $2,500 for the neonatal intensive care unit at B.C. Children’s Hospital. She’s already raised $1,275, thanks to family and friends who’ve supported the cause. Niessen’s confident she can handle four hours of laps in the pool. “I’ve never swum for four hours, not since I was 12,” she said. “I’m not nervous to pull it off because I’m just so inspired by my cousin and shocked by how much the community has supported (me).” Not only does Niessen lifeguard and teach water aerobics in Burnaby, she’s a full-time UBC student. B.C. Children’s Hospital helped by setting up a web page for Niessen to outline her fundraising plan and the story on how

she was inspired to act. “My cousin’s little baby, who I got to meet for the first time at my grandparents’ funeral, was a little piece of sunshine on a dark cloudy day. Holding her lifted my spirit, such a beautiful precious little girl,” Niessen wrote. The family had to wait till the baby weighed enough so sur-

gery could be performed, and now, at six months, she’s OK. “Now she’s a healthy baby. It’s incredible,” Niessen said. “This unit keeps babies alive by tubes.” To donate, visit:, click on Our Communities and select Independent Community Events. Then, click on See a

Burnaby group blasts changes to census Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

A local social services organization is stepping into the fray over the government’s move to replace the mandatory long form census with a voluntary version. Critics charge the decision is an ideologi-

cal move that will leave organizations and policy makers without dependable information. “If the census isn’t a reliable source of information, it may impact on our ability to provide quality social services to those in need,” said Jeanne Fike, executive director of Burnaby Family Life. “Burnaby is one

of the most diverse communities in all of Canada, and it’s our job to meet the needs of our residents.” Burnaby Family Life uses long form census data on languages and literacy rates to figure out what languages they should use to offer programs and publish material. They also use the data to make sure cer-

tain groups of people aren’t underserved. The non-profit social service group runs a variety of programs, helping refugees, immigrants, teen moms, sexual abuse survivors and anyone in need of childcare or help parenting. “It’s harder to reach out to those people Census Page 8

5 Child-luring arrest POLICING

SkyTrain station is third in crime stats Metrotown comes third, with Edmonds sixth for violent incidents Andrew Fleming staff reporter

Transit police recently released a complete list of incidents recorded by its officers in the past year. While the vast majority of the roughly 28,000 incidents were tickets for fare evasion, they also recorded more than 3,500 crimes committed last year, and Metrotown SkyTrain station was definitely one of the hot spots. In terms of violent crime – assaults, robberies, sexual assaults and weapons offences – the busy Burnaby station came in third with a total of 26 incidents, well behind BroadwayCommercial and Surrey Central stations, which both had over 60 each. There were a total of 19 assaults, four uttered threats, two robberies and one sexual assault at the station in 2009. The only other Burnaby station in the top ten, Edmonds station, was ranked sixth with a total of 22 violent incidents. According to TransLink data, Metrotown has more annual boardings than either of the top two stations, but its heavy foot traffic doesn’t explain the relatively high volume of violent crime, considering Granville Station, the busiest of all 47 stations, is a distant 19th on the list with only ten reported incidents. Metrotown also came in third for drug offences, behind Surrey Central and Stadium stations. All 45 incidents were for possession of marijuana. Edmonds station also cracked the top ten, coming in seventh with 22 pot possessions, three cocaine/heroin possessions and a single trafficking charge. However, Metrotown was relatively low on the list when it comes to fare evasion. A total of 722 tickets were written at the Burnaby hub for skipping the fare, or roughly two a day. Lougheed station was Burnaby’s likeliest spot to nab a fare evader, with 625 tickets issued, and Edmonds station took the bronze with 468. - with files from the Vancouver Sun 6

hose who know Lois Godfrey describe her as a passionate character with unwavering commitment to her cause. She’s loyal, resilient, kind and not afraid to stand up for what she believes in. The Burnaby resident has more than 50 years of history fighting for the rights of people with developmental disabilities. She was one of the founding members of the Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion, a group that supports people with developmental disabilities so they can be part of their communities. BACI was formed in 1956. It was a time when children with mental disabilities were not taught in public schools. Local school district staff encouraged a group of parents to get together and form their own school. By doing so, they proved to the provincial government that there was enough of a need for it to start letting the kids with developmental disabilities in public schools. The Burnaby parents realized they needed to join forces with those in other communities, like Trail and Vancouver, and the B.C. Association for Community Living was created. Godfrey played a key organizing role, making dozens of trips around the province, helping parents set up local chapters. They formed a united front to lobby the provincial government to start allowing kids with mental disabilities to be taught in public schools. Godfrey, now 85, is still going strong, advocating for the rights of people with developmental disabilities and making sure their needs are met. When did you move to Burnaby? I’ve lived here 61 years.

What was your role in starting BACI? Actually, my first daughter had learning disabilities, and we become aware of that as she approached the age of five or six and was refused schooling in the public schools. She had cerebral palsy and was visually impaired. There was nothing to RC Superstore Buy Low

offer her. There were two Burnaby principals that were aware of what was happening, and they put me in touch with parents with the same problem. We got together with the help of the school teachers involved. John Prior was one, a well-known Burnaby citizen, (former mayor) Bob Prittie was another one – he was a high school teacher at the time – and John was a principal of a high school in South Burnaby. And the parents, there were eight of us all together. Mr. (Clarence John) Frederickson actually was superintendent of schools at the time. We got together, and we were advised to form an association through the Societies Act and then start looking for accommodation to start our own school. We started in a church in central Burnaby. (That was BACI.) Who was advising you to start your own school? It was Mr. Fredrickson, and John Prior and Bob Prittie. It made sense actually: Register (the

association) under the Societies Act. Under the association, start our own school. We hired a teacher, and then when the school board was aware of what was happening, we negotiated with the school board all along, and they finally took us over. You negotiated with the school board and they took you over? They started classes for the handicapped. We had to also negotiate with Victoria as well. Leslie Peterson was minister of education at the time. Was this the first time kids with disabilities were getting taught in schools? Yes. Were there other people pushing for that? Trail was in the same situation. Vancouver was in the same situation. We were all doing the same thing. There was a common denominator that brought us all together.

reliable decisions. It makes sense. Now, for the average taxpayer, it may seem like an arcane battle, and many would probably be delighted to not have to fill in the long form. But those same folks may not be so delighted when government makes decisions on flimsy data and they end up with less services – or worse, services placed in areas for political purposes and not based on facts.

Making the census long form voluntary will ensure that some individuals will simply not be represented in the data. And to make decisions without that information is just plain dumb, as SFU statistics professor Carl Schwarz says, “Making decisions with poor data is worse than making decisions with no data. If you’ve got poor data, you make decisions with this aura of respectability that just isn’t there.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR MLA gets golf tournament wrong

Dear Editor:

Re: Partisan politics at play. Letters to the Editor, Burnaby NOW, July 21 Mayor Derek Corrigan acknowledged that the listing of the mayor’s tournament should not have been in the (city’s) community calendar. The first any of us even knew that it was there is when it was brought to our attention. Mr. Harry Bloy says the mayor should stand up and take some responsibility; the mayor did immediately when he realized what had happened. Mr. Bloy goes on to cloud the issue with other tournaments that are charitable events. The mayor’s golf tournament is a political fundraiser, and it is

stated on the entry forms. Each year, I send out the invitations and receive them back. More than 95 per cent of the entries have been with us from Day 1. Any new ones are from the direct mailing I do for the tournament. This year, I asked the new entries if they entered because of the community calendar and not one of them did. In fact, they had not even seen the calendar. Harry then goes on to say the $150,000 proceeds from the tournament should go to charities. I don’t know where he comes up with this figure, but I can assure that it is less than 25 per cent of that amount. All political parties hold fundraisers.

Rivers Day plans

Burnaby council approved the planning stage for the 30th anniversary of Rivers Day in B.C. on Monday. The free public event, expected to attract 1,500 participants, is intended to focus on the Fraser River this year.

The proposed event would take place at Burnaby Fraser Foreshore Park. The Outdoor Recreation Council of B.C., BCIT, Byrne Creek Streamkeepers and the Stream of Dreams Mural Society have consulted with the city about the event. Bottled water will be discouraged at the event, which is also part of World Rivers Day, as part of Metro Vancouver’s tap water campaign. Burnaby’s World Rivers Day event takes place on Sunday, Sept. 26. – Janaya Fuller-Evans

Inclusion: Focus needs to be on seniors continued from page 3

We formed The B.C. Association for Retarded Children (now the B.C. Association for Community Living). It was called that at that time because we were only dealing with children. Are you still active with BACI? Oh yes, but more as a general member and belonging to various committees. I’ve been president twice now. I soon discovered later on you don’t have to be a board member to be active or effective. What’s changed over the years? We were looking after the children first, then we branched into the adult needs and teenage services, then we branched into the multicultural – that became a service. It’s important to understand the cultures of the families … in order to meet the services they require. What the next paradigm is, I don’t know, but I do see there have been three paradigms.

What change still needs to happen? Seniors. I’m also on the seniors’ committee. We’re providing services for that. Where many of us thought we’d retire, we can’t. The families today, our children are living longer because of the good health system and standards of living we enjoy in B.C. We find we’re blazing a trail for seniors because the younger generation, they haven’t got there yet. We’re the first lot of seniors to address the needs. How has the public’s perception of people with mental disabilities changed over the years? Our sons and daughters do a better job themselves. They sell themselves to the community. They’re automatically accepted for their limitations because of their unique personalities and friendliness. I think we’re great support for them, and that’s what we should be. But they’ve got brains, and they use them. When

they’ve got the services, it allows them to relax and be the best they can be. Is there still a lot of discrimination from the general public against people with developmental disabilities? I don’t really see any problem in acceptance today. It’s not a mystery. People understand. It’s only when they don’t understand that you have problems. Is there anything else you would like the readers to know? There’s a great deal of thanks that is due to our staff and volunteers. … I don’t think the membership should be taken for granted.

Man gets 11 years for sex tourism

A Burnaby man convicted of sex tourism crimes was sentenced to 11 years in federal prison. On Wednesday morning, in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver, Kenneth Klassen, 59, received 10 years for sexual touching and one year for importing child pornography. Klassen, who had been on parole, was immediately taken into custody. Klassen, an art dealer, had previously pleaded guilty to 14 counts of sex with children and one count of possession of child pornography. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Austin Cullen called what Klassen had done opportunistic, organized and ongoing procurement

of children who are particularly vulnerable. In addition to the 11-year sentence, Cullen agreed to Crown prosecutor Brendan McCabe’s requests for a lifelong prohibition on Klassen going to playgrounds, school grounds or parks and a 10-year weapons prohibition after his release. Cullen also agreed that Klassen must provide a DNA sample for Canada’s sex offender registry. Klassen, only the third person in Canada to have been convicted of sex tourism crimes, received almost the stiffest sentence possible, as Crown had asked for a 12-year sentence during its arguments on July 22 and 23.

In comparison, Donald Bakker received only five years for sexually abusing children and five for sexual assault of Vancouver sex trade workers. Klassen’s lawyers, Ian Donaldson and Len Doust, had argued for a six-year prison term with no prohibition on going to parks, playgrounds and schools. Klassen was arrested in 2004 after a Canada Customs officer suspected that a package Klassen had mailed to himself from the Philippines may contain pornography. The Burnaby RCMP found more videos after searching Klassen’s home and storage locker. – Postmedia Network Inc.

Ticket sales in a slump Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Music festivals everywhere are suffering this summer and Burnaby is no exception. It has been a problem for organizers throughout Canada. Ticket sales for the Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival dropped after the early bird sales period ended. But this is a yearly occurrence and not a major concern, according to one city staff member. “Concert ticket sales are down everywhere this summer,” said Geraldine Parent, art services manager for the city. She pointed out that other summer music festivals, such as Lilith, have also seen a slump. Lilith organizers cancelled 13 of 36 shows on the newly resurrected tour, because of low ticket sales. Virgin Festival Canada, which came to Deer Lake Park last July, was cancelled across the country for 2010. Summer tour organizers are blaming soft and late ticket sales. “We’ve seen some of that,” Parent said of the drop in ticket sales. She did not specify how many tickets have been sold but said it was roughly the same as last year at this time. “We seem to be on a similar track to last year,” Parent said. People sometimes wait to buy because they are unsure of the weather and don’t want to commit to going until they know it’ll be nice, she said. The newly renovated festival space at Deer Lake Park can accommodate 10,000 to 12,000 people, Parent said. Ticket sales have been about half of that in past years. “There is certainly room for more,” she said. The festival did offer party pod packages to attract more attendees this year, but that deal ended on July 30. The pod’s cost $1,000 (plus HST) and came with admission for eight people, cabaret style seating inside the tent, priority access to the facilities and one complimentary drink for each attendee. The pods were primarily intended for local businesses that might want to bring clients or staff. The tent offered a weather buffer, in case it rains or the day is extremely hot, Parent said. “You’d get out of the weather,” she said. Fest Page 14

Blues legends: Blues festival volunteers Elane Koochin, Shelley Twist, Vi Jantzen and Sandy Fesiuk will be helping out with this year’s Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival on Saturday, Aug. 14, at Deer Lake Park. Volunteers help the festival run smoothly.

Looking forward to the blues Blues fest volunteers keep coming back to lend a hand Janaya Fuller-Evans

staff reporter

The sun is shining, people move happily around the festival lawn and snippets of guitar riffs filter through the crowd. The Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival is a wonderful experience, according to three of this year’s volunteers. “The atmosphere is great,” says Sandy Fesiuk, a longtime Burnaby resident. “Everybody’s in a really good mood.” Fesiuk has volunteered with the festival for years, along with the two other women sitting in the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts. The trio is just some of the many volunteers who help with Shadbolt events as well as the festivals held at Deer Lake Park – the Rhododendron Festival, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra concert and Discovery Day, as well as the blues fest. Fesiuk, who was previously the volunteer coordinator for the Footlight Theatre Company, says it is great to see so many people come from all over British Columbia, as well as other provinces, for the festival. Each of the 60 volunteers works about a

four-hour shift and is then able to check out the music, according to Fesiuk. “We can enjoy ourselves,” she says. Elaine Koochin, also a longtime resident, has only missed volunteering at two festivals, she says. She attended the first one and missed one for a family wedding. Koochin has only seen one festival where the weather was truly terrible in all that time, she says. In the downpour, people made tents out of blankets and took what cover they could, but everyone stayed,” Koochin says. She also volunteers at the Vancouver Jazz Festival and Music Fest. The blues fest has shifted over the years to include more roots-based music, Koochin says. “There’s good music and lots of people,” she says. “There’s such a variety (of music).” She loves volunteering for an event where everyone is enjoying themselves, she adds. “Nobody ever leaves saying, ‘I had a crummy time’,” Koochin says. Vi Jantzen lives in Burnaby and has volunteered with the festival for five years. Her first volunteer experience was at the

Shadbolt, and she has since become a volunteer-opportunity junkie, she says. “I like the atmosphere, the celebration of music,” Jantzen says. “There’s a happy mood that’s there all the time.” She plans to keep volunteering for the festival in the future. “For as long as I live,” she says. Volunteers need to be over the age of 18 and need to have volunteer experience, says volunteer coordinator Shelley Twist. “They need to be dependable and responsible, and enjoy interacting with people,” she adds. The festival has all the volunteers needed for this year, but those interested in volunteering in 2011 should contact the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts. This year’s Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival includes Taj Mahal, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Serena Ryder, Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real, Colin Linden, Little Miss Higgins and Yukon Blonde. It’s on Saturday, Aug. 14 at 12:30 p.m. The 11th annual Blues and Roots Festival will be held at the newly renovated Deer Lake Park. Tickets can be purchased at

Clock keeps ticking for Full Figure Theatre Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Vancouver is about to get a 39-year-old alarm call. Burnaby’s production of 39 and Ticking … The Musical! is moving on to Vancouver. The story of a woman – Rose, played by Vancouver’s Lisa Beley – who is approaching 40 when her biological clock goes off with a bang is written and directed by Sharon Heath. Full Figure Theatre is presenting the musical, which played at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts last year, at the Jericho Arts Centre from Aug. 3 to 8. The comedy centres around Rose and her desire for a baby but there is a conflict when Rose falls in love with Dan, a divorced man with two children who doesn’t want more. The different aspects of Rose and those in her life swirl around in her head as she waits for the results of a pregnancy test. The cast includes Burnabyite Joan MacLean, who plays Rose’s mother. “I play the mother who lives inside her head,” MacLean explains. “I want her to get married to a lovely man and have a baby.”

MacLean, a musical director, piano teacher and singer, enjoys the role. “I love playing the part,” she says. “I say the things all of our mothers have said.” New Westminster’s Lisa Bunting plays Rose’s best friend, a woman who wants the polar opposite of what Rose’s mother wants. “Traditionally and historically my arch nemesis is the mother,” Bunting says. “Basically, I want Rose to keep partying down indefinitely.” If Rose isn’t willing to do that, Bunting says, she should at least get pregnant the right way; get some guy’s sperm and run away, so she can raise the baby with her. “Do it your way, do it the independent way,” she says. Bunting has been acting professionally for more than 30 years in TV, film and theatre, and is also a teacher with the Carousel Theatre and the Richmond Academy of Dance. The cast also includes Cheryl Mullen, from Surrey, who plays a wise woman archetype in Rose’s mind, as well as the aspect of Dan. Mullen’s character is the newest

lise lost both her grandparents within one week. Days after her grandmother died, her heartbroken grandfather chose a beautiful white marble heart for both his own and his beloved wife’s ashes. Within a week, he had an unexpected cardiac arrest and died on the day of their 65th wedding anniversary. At her grandparents’ funeral in May, Elise met for the first time her cousin’s baby daughter, Lilli, and holding this precious four-month-old girl in her arms lifted Elise’s spirits. Lilli brought sunshine on a dark dreary day, joy and potential to sadness and loss. Elise would learn that her cousin had a placental separation at 34 weeks of pregnancy, and that this had prevented Lilli’s heart from developing normally. She had persistent connections between the chambers of her heart and the great vessels. The atrioventricular septal defects would need to be repaired, but Lilli had to gain sufficient weight in order to have surgery. After hearing about the stress experienced by her cousin and her family, Elise was inspired to show her support to her cousin, other families and the medical team of the neonatal intensive care unit by raising funds using one of her strengths. Elise, who is completing her science degree at UBC, works full-time as a lifeguard in our Burnaby pools. On Aug. 13, she will be swimming for four hours at the Canada Games Pool with a team of volunteers to raise funds and awareness for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at B.C. Children’s Hospital. Elise has never swum continuously for four hours, but she is a strong, experienced swimmer. She recently completed a triathlon, and she has been training for this special event in order to achieve her potential. Elise, connected in loss to her cousin and inspired by baby Lilli, has discovered her calling at this moment. She has found this in the intersection of her talent as a swimmer, her passion as a compassionate person, and the needs of the situation.

Buying a hobby car CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: I graduated from high school in 1963, and my dream car was the 1963 Studebaker Avanti. Well, life got in the way, and I never realized my dream of owning an Avanti. I recently have been going on EBay to find Avantis that have survived these past 47 years. I have located several that are rated from museum quality to daily drivers. This car did not achieve star status, as Studebaker went out of business in 1966, and a Canadian company produced replicas for several years. But the ‘63 and ‘64 models, in average condition, seem to be going for between $6,000 and

$13,000. My questions are: Do you think a 47-year-old vehicle could be a dependable car for everyday use? (I do not want a trailer queen or a covered dust collector in the garage.) And, the Avanti was known as a muscle car in its day, so could I expect it to still be as strong today? I know I’m not. Finally, in the vast experience you both have with automobiles, do you think I would have to drive this kind of car with kid gloves and always be fearful of old-age-related problems? I really don’t want to own a money pit. – Gary TOM: We’ll take your questions one at a time, Gary. Do we think a 47year-old car can be dependable for everyday use? RAY: No. Forty-sevenyear-old cars are, generally speaking, unreliable. Not to mention unsafe. That’s why most people got rid of them 35 years ago.

TOM: Would it still be a muscle car today? RAY: In looks, yes. And possibly on the road, too. It’s possible, if the compression is good and everything is in good working order, that you could floor it and accelerate pretty fast. Just make sure nothing’s in your way. Like a curve. But that leads directly to the last question TOM: Would you have to drive this car with kid gloves and always be fearful of age-related problems? RAY: Yes. And that would preclude flooring it and trying to drive it like a muscle car. TOM: When you buy a car like this, what you’re really buying is a hobby, Gary. If you don’t have the time or the interest for an old-car hobby, then buy a 1/10th scale model Avanti for your desk instead. ◆ Got a question about cars?

Taking a long stride: Burnaby Lake’s Kimi Naqelevuki looks for a gap in a 31-10 loss against the Dog River Howlers from Saskatchewan in the Bowl final at the Abbotsford 7s rugby tournament last weekend.

Rugby women win fourth 7s title Burnaby Lake Rugby Club won a fourth women’s summer 7s title last weekend with a 17-5 victory over the Emerald City Mudhens from Seattle. Becky Querido, Lauren Tagg and Canadian World Cup teammember Anna Schnell all scored tries for the winners at the Abbotsford 7s tournament, the fifth in a nine-series B.C. Rugby

Union schedule. Burnaby Lake’s under-16 men won the bowl final, beating the Okanagan rep team 22-10. Team captain Titu Le scored a try, while Tye Pellichero, Ibrahim Nawar and Al-Drawesh Nawar also scored. The club’s international men’s team lost in the bowl final 31-10 to a rep team from Saskatchewan

– the Dog River Howlers. Burnaby’s elite men’s team lost in the semifinals to the South Sea Connection, a Vancouver Island rep team. Burnaby Lake will host the sixth stop of B.C. Rugby’s summer series – the Lighthouse 7s – at the Burnaby Lake Sports ComplexEast on Aug. 7. The tournament will run all day.

Burnaby cadette second-best shooter on Canada’s u-17 hoop team at worlds Canada finished 11th at the International Basketball Federation cadette women’s under-17 championships in France last week. Lexi Der of Burnaby had a big game in Canada’s final match, an 82-48 victory over Mali last Saturday. The St. Thomas More forward was a perfect six-forsix from the floor, scoring 13 points while adding two rebounds and one blocked shot in the final placement game of the 12-team tournament. Der played in all seven games for Canada, finishing fourth in overall team scoring with 47 points. Her 46.7 shooting percentage from the floor was sec-

ond-best on the team. Der also gobbled up 40 rebounds, had five steals and four blocks in the competition. In quarter-final action, Der posted five points and nine rebounds in Canada’s 59-51 loss to ninth-place finishing Argentina July 23. Canada finished with a record of 2-5 at the worlds, including an 82-73 victory over Turkey in the country’s opening match in Rodez, France on July 16. The United States defeated the host French 92-62 in the gold-medal final. China beat Belgium 85-73 for the bronze medal.

The Red Deer Rebels of the Western Hockey League sent former Burnaby Winter Club product Landon Ferraro and a conditional fifth-round draft pick to the Everett Silvertips in exchange for Byron Froese and a thirdrounder in 2012 on July 26.

The 19-year-old Ferraro was selected in the second round of the 2009 NHL entry draft by the Detroit Red Wings. Ferraro has scored 66 goals and garnered 125 total points in 179 games to date in the major junior loop.

Simon Fraser University student Curtis Manning suggested prior to the International Lacrosse Federation world championships that controlling loose balls could be the difference. But although the defending champion Canadians won the loose-ball battle 19-13 over the Americans, the United States won the war, coming back to win 12-10 in the championship final in Manchester, England last Saturday. Canada fell behind 3-0 to start the contest but closed the deficit to 3-2 after the opening quarter. The defending champs clawed back in the second quarter to temporarily knot the match at 4-4 on Zack Greer’s first of two goals in the game. But the U.S. replied with four unanswered markers to go into half-time with an 8-4 lead. Canada did better to start the third. John Grant Jr., who had a hat trick for the Maple Leaf, scored his second of the game to spark a four-goal rally in the quarter. Garrett Billings of Langley and New Westminster’s Kevin Crowley also scored as Canada again tied it up 8-8, heading into the final frame. Greer gave Canada its first lead of the contest at 9-8 minutes into the fourth quarter. Grant’s third of the game put Canada ahead 10-9 midway through the stanza. But the Americans countered with three straight scores in the final 10 minutes to capture their ninth overall world title. “The U.S. is big, athletic and good dodgers. Canada plays an almost expanded box lacrosse. When it’s

clicking, it’s tough to beat,” said Manning prior to the championships. “The Canadians are good at tight, short passes. We strive for possession. If you can keep loose balls, you have a real good chance of winning.” However such was not the case this time around. Canada had won the world field lacrosse title on two separate ocassions, in 1978 and again in 2006, when the Canadians stopped a 38-game winning streak by the Americana that spanned seven world champion tournaments. U.S.A.’s only loss of the tourney was a 10-9 defeat to Canada on Day 2 of the world championships. Billings finished the competition with 13 goals and three assists, while Crowley added six goals and five helpers. In other placement games, Scotland held off the Netherlands to place seventh overall following an 11-10 victory. Scott Janssen of New Westminster tallied a hat trick for the Dutch, including his third of the game in a desperate three-goal rally late in the fourth quarter that fell one goal short of the game-tying marker. Janssen finished eighth in overall tournament scoring with 16 goals and 15 assists. Jordan McBride, who played for Scotland, was held off the scoresheet in the final match. McBride placed fifth in overall scoring with 27 goals and seven assists. Josh Covelski of Poland led all scorers with 35 goals and 43 total points. Burnaby junior A Laker Brian Gillis placed 44th overall in scoring at the world championships, helping team Ireland to a ninth-place finish with two first-half goals in a 158 win over Sweden. Gillis finished with 16 goals.

just five carries, including a 50yard scamper in the final quarter of play in a 40-20 victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Saturday. Cornish, a former high school player of the year, also had one reception for 20 yards.

Henry Choi of Vancouver 6-4, 6-4 in the men’s open singles final.

Special Olympians medal at Games Six Burnaby athletes made B.C. proud at the Special Olympics Canada Summer Games in London, Ont. last week. Mark Russell and David Wong helped the B.C. Grizzlies win gold in baseball at the Stronach community centre. The Grizzlies went undefeated at the Games, winning the final 11-8 over Brampton, Ont. Amanda Littlejohn also brought home a gold medal to B.C. in 10-pin bowling. Littlejohn won

the medal in the team division. Katie Durkin and Heather Ma were both triple medallists in swimming. Durkin won a silver medal in the 200-metre freestyle. She also earned a pair of third-place medals in the 50m free and 200m backstroke. Ma was a runner-up in the 50m butterfly, while taking third place in the 100m breaststroke and as a member of the 4x100m free relay.

Kyle Whitelaw earned a bronze medal in track and field for Team B.C., posting a personal-best time of 1:07.22 in the 400m run. More than 230 B.C.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The years ahead accent deep changes in, and a cautious, sober, serious, slowgrowth approach toward, all security, real estate, and domestic spheres. Flow with this; embrace it. Oddly, now to 2019, your relationships will be anything but sober, predictable and cautious! Sudden hypnotic attractions, overnight decisions to marry (or split) or sparkling new oddball friends might be the norm (hints late week). Early week accents that first sober trend: be willing to fight, but make sure you’re not over-reacting. Legal, love, travel, intellectual matters shine mid-week. You’re happy!

Taurus April 20-May 20: Avoid arguments. Attend to security, property, domestic, family and supply issues for the next three weeks. Your energy might ebb – you’re in a natural “hibernation” phase until late month. Paradoxically, work demands much effort all August – but you’ll almost enjoy it by next week, as co-workers grow affectionate. (This message applies to some degree into late 2012.) Carefully regulate your energy, alternate work and rest, especially outdoors. Employment changes might emerge from legal, government, management or international quarters. Money looks good Wednesday/Thursday.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your energy, charisma and clout shine! But don’t make big new starts that could soon hit the eddies of indecision, delays and back-tracking (due by Aug. 20, or sooner). Focus on wrapping up what’s already in the works. This week will be momentous, tumultuous for some of the people around you – be a friend, an aid. Your own work, health, communications, legal, intellectual, travel, publishing, educational, cultural and love spheres face deep changes/challenges, highlighted Tuesday and late week, but lasting for several years ahead. Happiness mid-week – a flirty Gemini or a deep Aries?

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: You might receive some dire messages this week – but they are not as dire as they seem. Your spheres of work, health, duties, charities, spirituality, management, dealing with head office and government – all are under pressure, the status quo must change. Realize this and proceed with a willing, helpful attitude. Don’t get riled up Monday/Tuesday when you might sense a “challenge” – be quiet, diplomatic, study the flow of (and origin of) events. Same thing Friday/Saturday, but your mood is more mellow, understanding. Midweek, you can delve deep, learn some real secrets!

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Lie low, conserve energy, avoid fights – plan, manage, act behind the scenes. Be charitable, spiritual, moral, honest with yourself. You “skate by” many of the powerful stresses and challenges that occur now; they affect associates more than you. Still, these major forces do affect your financial, sexual, research, intimate and health spheres, so take events, trends seriously, especially around Tuesday and late week. Your own deep sense of speculation, of taking a risk, might struggle with economic “realities” – yet you might be right! Be ambitious mid-week, diplomatic Friday.

★ RENT TO OWN! ★ If you have a small down payment, I have a nice home for you! Less then perfect credit OK. Call Kim 604-628-6598


Aries March 21 - April 19: A major struggle might occur. Your humour is at a low level. If you’re challenged, calm down, study events, stride ahead slowly and steadily. Study the conditions around events – this setting is your answer: gaze on it, then plan your ensuing moves. Your career/life status is undergoing major change: a) accept this, but better yet, b) use it as an opportunity to charge forth in a way that conforms to the “new setting” around you. Though you feel expansive and impulsive, others hold your on-off button – co-operate! Saturday onward, sweet affection returns to relationships!

Gemini May 21-June 20: DON’T invest. The accent lies on communications, paperwork, details, emails, calls, office chores, errands – dive in! Be curious, ask questions, explore, travel, talk to people, connect with siblings. This week contains barriers or problems in “big money,” investments, debts, mutually owned reserves, especially around Tuesday. An Aries or Libra, a “hothead” might be involved. Maintain composure; your position is pretty rock solid, as long as you don’t abandon it. Smile, be diplomatic Friday, despite provocation – sudden love could appear – careful! Complete projects, delay big starts.

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: You’re in a wise, mellow, compassionate, loving phase. Look around you and see the major trends occurring in the world. What you understand now can boost you immeasurably in the future. Early week features dead-ends (which are really changes in direction) in money, romantic, child-oriented, creative and social spheres. Your social and love needs might directly counter your money wishes. So you can adapt, change, resign yourself, or charge ahead with a new plan. Wednesday/Thursday show you the possibilities – and the opposition. New love’s possible, but dicey! Careful, Friday.

A Property Worth Seeing!

Call Leigh Turnbull 604-530-4111

August 1 - 7 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The main accent lies on depths, research, secrets, investments, debt, intimacy, sexual desire, health and lifestyle choices/ commitments. Here, all is well – or at least, “normal.” But another long-term drama, a subtle but important one, is slowly transforming you and your life – your personality. Here, you face great challenges, pressures – mostly on career fronts, a little in domestic areas. Definite choices are necessary. Bosses and power people are no-nonsense, skeptical, even angry: careful Tuesday. They grow more amenable Friday through August – wait to approach! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Big romantic, social, marital and partnership choices this week! Travel, publishing, advertising, education, import-export, sibling interactions and communications might be under pressure. It’s a good pressure, for it forces overdue change. (Legal and litigation questions might arise. My advice: avoid lawsuits to Sept. 15. They can prove burdensome right into October 2012, with little “win” quotient – talk it out!) Others hold the aces; be diplomatic, flexible. Something ends early week. Romance mid-week! Careful Friday: accidents and “wrong love” possible. Be an angel all week! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Lots of work to do, Pisces – dig in! For three weeks, concentrate on finishing or giving a big forward heave to ongoing projects rather than starting any new ones. This week, especially around Tuesday and Friday, brings a climax in certain difficult situations. The main problem is that your money (and sexual) interests are “fighting” your cherished wishes. For example, you want a future wedding (the wish) but you’re not sexually attracted to “Mr./Ms. Right.” Or you can’t afford the life you want (what else is new?). Careful with finances, investments. Avoid money, possession “show downs.” • Reading: 416-686-5014
