Teens arrested after attacks Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Burnaby RCMP arrested two teenagers after two assaults occurred near transit stops late Wednesday. The first assault took place just before midnight on Wednesday. A 26-year-old woman walking home from Gilmore SkyTrain station was assaulted and is still in hospital with a head injury but is expected to make a full recovery. The second woman, also 26 years old, was assaulted in the 8400-block of 11th Avenue at 12:30 a.m. on Thursday as she walked home from a bus stop. She was treated and released from hospital. “There are indications that these males were targeting transit stops,” Cpl. Brenda Gresiuk, spokesperson for the Burnaby RCMP, said. “They (the women) were using public transportation.” She added that the women were not connected. “They were just in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Gresiuk said. A 15-year-old Burnaby resident is facing charges of robbery, possession of stolen property and sexual assault and has been remanded in custody. The police investigation is continuing, and officers expect to lay charges against a second 15-yearold boy. “The police worked tirelessly throughout the day and night to catch these thugs,” Gresiuk said in a press release. “These senseless crimes committed by these youths are an exception to the norm and offend members of our community regardless of their age.” The coordinated efforts of the Burnaby RCMP serious crime team, the Burnaby interview team and other members led to the arrest, according to the press release. If you have information about this crime, contact Const. Stephen Matheson at 604-294-7922.

Greener transportation: Eleanor Acker and Charlie Haid try out the new bridge over Still Creek. The overpass is part of the Central Valley Greenway, a bike path that connects Vancouver, Burnaby and New Westminster.

New bridge for greenway cyclists Andrew Fleming staff reporter

Life for bicycle commuters along the Central Valley Greenway, a 24-kilometre bike path linking Burnaby, New Westminster and Vancouver, recently became a bit easier. Although Still Creek waters don’t run deep, getting around the Burnaby Lake tributary near Gilmore Station used to be a considerable hassle for cyclists, who previously were forced to either navigate a steep and awkward pedestrian bridge or take their chances in traffic to get around it. Not anymore. The new bridge is very discreet,

and many cyclists, unless they remember the old way of crossing the creek, won’t even notice they are on a bridge at all. “The first time I rode the CVG, I completely blew past it,” admitted Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition spokesperson Talia Fanning. “This one is flat rather than arched, so bike access is much, much better.” Although a new bridge over the modest creek has been in place for over a month now, its grand debut, complete with a ribbon-cutting ceremony with scissors wielded by Mayor Derek Corrigan, took place June 12. The cycling coalition also turned the event into a bit of a party, complete with a

barbecue and live music from the ever-popular Carnival Band, since the bike path was also celebrating its very first birthday. Although the path is only officially a year old, the route was in the planning stages for over six years, and cyclists have been using sections of it the entire time. “Part of the reason it was officially opened last year was because the Winston overpass was completed, but now it is even better,” said Fanning. “It’s great that, even though it was officially opened a year ago, Burnaby has continued to improve upon what was opened and has been really supportive of the idea of, once it is finished, that you never go back and continue to work on it.”

Political listing a ‘mistake’ Burnaby Citizens’ Association fundraiser listed in city brochure Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

The listing of a political party fundraiser should not have been included in the city’s calendar, which is sent out to residents, according to Mayor Derek Corrigan. Corrigan became aware of the error when David Field, a Burnaby resident, contacted the city and placed a complaint with B.C.’s chief electoral officer. Corrigan said he didn’t know how the event got into the calendar but added it was possible a staff member had looked at the mayor’s personal calendar and had listed the golf tournament as a city event. “I had not known this had occurred until now,” Corrigan said. “It isn’t appropriate. “It’s obviously just an error,” he added. The event in question is listed as the Mayor’s Annual Golf Tournament, on Wednesday, July 14. Other events listed for July include

It’s time for all levels of government involved to step up and make it happen. Let’s face it, quibbles over who should cough up how much are a little silly in light of the fact that, at the end

of the day, the costs are being borne by the same taxpayers. How best to cover those costs is an issue that’s worth further consideration. Taxes, tolls, levies, fares – these are all topics that deserve to be discussed thoroughly so that wise decisions can be made. But simply putting off building the line for another three years? That’s just not smart. It’s not too expensive to build public transit. It’s too expensive not to.

the effect of the product on smokers and non-smokers). Pharmacists are health-care professionals, just like nurses, doctors, dentists, etc., and it is hypocritical of them to sell you sickarets with one hand and then, with the other hand, sell you medicines which attempt to cover some of the effects of smoking (the coughing, weakness, etc.). And young people do believe that sickarets can’t be all that bad if they’re sold in drug stores. Sickarets should be sold only in government-run liquor stores, which already make it difficult for underage children to buy the other legal addictive, debilitating, deadly product: alcohol. After all, would you go to a doctor who had a sickaret vending machine in the waiting room? Jerry Steinberg, Surrey

MLA deserves recall Dear Editor:

Re: Burnaby MLA targeted on HST ‘hit list,’ Burnaby NOW, June 26. So Richard T. Lee is a possible target for recall? Good! I am a Burnaby citizen, and I want to live in a democracy. When an elected official is quoted as stating he would “back the HST, even if the majority of his constituents opposed it” – I am disgusted, this is definitely not my idea of democracy. MLAs do not have a God-given right to do what they want. They are in office to represent the people who put them there. We all have a right to our opinion, and if Lee truly believes the HST is a good thing, that is his own opinion, and only his




own opinion. To say “I’m doing the right thing” when the people who voted for him did not elect him on that mandate is utterly wrong. And that’s my opinion. Yes, he should be recalled. It’s about time our politicians remembered that they are there to serve the people, not themselves. Dorothy Smith, Burnaby

Blockades are acceptable Dear Editor:

Re: Israel’s local ‘cleanup’ brigade, Letter to the editor, Burnaby NOW, June 26. It is always interesting to read another anti-Israel diatribe by Mordecai Briemberg, a well-known and semi-professional Israel basher. As usual he always manages to confuse reality with fiction in his eagerness to support any act directed against the only freely elected democracy in the Middle East. Blockades and embargoes against antagonist states are time-honoured and internationally accepted tactics, both by international convention and under naval law. After all, were they not employed without hesitation or criticism by Britain and its allies against Germany and its allies in both world wars? Despite the shrill cries of Mr.Briemberg and his compatriots, there is no factual or proven evidence, beyond that trumped up by Hamas, that these measures are causing “stunted growth of children and the malnourished of hundreds of thousands of people” in Gaza. It has, however, managed to deprive the group of Hamas terrorists controlling Gaza of major weaponry intended to kill and maim innocent Israeli citizens.

NDP: A new threat from the right? continued from page 6

successful recall campaign is tough business. Vander Zalm will need the signatures of at least 40 per cent of the voters in a particular riding, a goal made even tougher by the fact that the voter’s list is significantly out of date. Vander Zalm has released his “hit list” of 24 B.C. Liberal MLAs he is targeting for recall if the government doesn’t scrap the hysterical sales tax. Of those, 21 occupy seats from regions the old federal Reform Party used to sweep with some big majorities. Having underestimated the popularity of the anti-

HST petition, I’m not about to totally dismiss the chances of a successful recall. The old Reform country is rich with anti-tax populism, and it’s easy to imagine a recall petition catching fire with the voters in those areas. It will be difficult to pull off, but all Vander Zalm needs is one or two winning campaigns. If he can achieve that goal, he will push James farther out of the limelight, thus weakening her leadership even further. While it’s true a fractured B.C. Liberal party is a perfect recipe for an NDP win in 2013, New Democrats had best ensure a new populist and free-

enterprise party doesn’t catch too much fire around Vander Zalm and Delaney. Given the volatile nature of the B.C. electorate, it’s conceivable a third party could swamp the existing B.C. Liberals to the point of simply replacing them. That would put the NDP up against a single freeenterprise party again. The NDP jumped on the anti-HST bandwagon for obvious political advantage. They had better hope that bandwagon doesn’t get so crowded that they end up getting pushed off it as it heads down the road. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Line: Will take ‘miracle’ continued from page 1

Corrigan added. The decision was made despite studies recommending an ALRT system. “I think that the province has interfered so drastically in the abilities of local government, in terms of transportation,” he said. The project includes fewer stations than originally proposed, and Burnaby council is pressing to have the optional Cameron Station included as part of the project, since there are physical requirements that would make it impossible to add it to the system at a later stage. The six primary stations are Lougheed Town Centre, Burquitlam Plaza, the Port Moody West Coast Express station, the Coquitlam West Coast Express station and a station at Coquitlam City Hall, with access to Douglas College. There were four additional spots being considered for two optional stations: Cameron in Burnaby, Queens in Port Moody, and Falcon and Lincoln in Coquitlam. Corrigan spoke out against the “massive deletion of stations,” saying Burnaby would continue to press to have Cameron added to the initial project. City staff prepared the report, requesting that the government secure funding for the project, go with an ALRT system instead of the SkyTrain option, and add Cameron Station to the initial plans. Corrigan added that it looks as if construction won’t begin before 2013, adding that it would take “a miracle” to get it

done at this point. The preliminary project schedule estimated construction would begin in the fourth quarter of 2010, to be completed by the third quarter of 2014. However, the project isn’t completely off the books until 2013, according to Ken Hardie, spokesperson for TransLink, said. “There is nothing in our plan for 2011 currently,” he said, but added that could change if funding becomes available. It is up to the province to decide when to begin, Hardie added, pointing out that the province is in charge of the project and its timeline. Transportation Minister Shirley Bond was not available for an interview before press time. The government is conducting public consultations in advance of the environmental assessment certificate application for the project. According to Burnaby’s staff report, the project is already behind schedule as the environmental certificate was to be issued by the third quarter of 2010. As the environmental assessment office usually conducts a 180-day public review, followed by a 45-day ministerial review, it looks as though the project is about six months behind at this point. There is an open house on July 6 at Coquitlam city hall from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., another at Burnaby’s Cameron Recreation Centre on July 7, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., and one in Port Moody, at the Inlet Theatre and Galleria on Thursday, July 8 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Expenses: Travelling adds up continued from page 3

B.C.-Asia Twinning Program – one to Taiwan in May ($1,123.82), and one to Beijing, China in September ($5,173.17). However, one councillor spent more on travel and conferences last year than all the others, including the mayor. Coun. Paul McDonell claimed $10,651.80 in travel expensesforsixconferences. In total, McDonell received $63,647 in wages, benefits and travel expenses. The councillor who claimed the least amount of travel and conference expenses was Coun. Dan Johnston, chair of the environment committee. He claimed $656.25 for the UBCM convention in Vancouver.

Pedal pushing for clean water in Africa Retired Burnaby school administrator is cycling the globe while raising money for a clean water system in Ethiopia Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

A familiar face from the Burnaby school district is cycling around the globe in an effort to raise money for charity while fulfilling a dream from his youth. Retired administrator Doug Ibbott is raising money for a clean water system in an Ethiopian village and doing something he’s always wanted to do since he was young. “I had this little dream that it would be really fun to do an intercontinental trip (by bike), but when you are a kid, you don’t have the means to do that sort of thing, so it remained a dream,” Ibbott said. The Burnaby NOW caught up with him while on a break at home for his mom’s 90th birthday. The first leg of his journey is from Burnaby to Istanbul, which he hopes to complete by this winter. “You get a treHe left May 9 and has made mendous sense it as far as Ontario. Ibbott was incredulous at the size of things: of what Canada the mountains, the Prairies and is about, … and Canada as a whole. “It’s a really intimate way to you get to change get to know the country,” he flat tires in the said. “You get to meet people most bizarre you might not meet in a car. You get a tremendous sense of what places.” Canada is about, … and you get to change flat tires in the most DOUG IBBOTT Retired administrator bizarre places.” Ibbott attended high school in Burnaby and, as an adult, worked for the district for nearly 34 years. His work focused on libraries and aboriginal education. He also helped develop curriculum for gifted kids. He was a principal at Lochdale, Confederation Park and Maywood elementaries. Ibbott plans on doing the second leg of his trip, through Asia, in 2011. (He will take a break between the two legs of the journey.) His goal is to raise $50,000 for HOPE International Development Agency, a non-profit group based in New Westminster. To follow his journey online, visit The site has information on the trip and a link to Ibbott’s blog, where he writes updates on his travels and posts photographs of the landscape. He also has a Spot Tracker, a device similar to a GPS, which tracks and automatically updates his location online every 10 minutes. At press time, Ibbott was heading north on the TransCanada Highway around the northern part of Lake Superior. There is also a link to HOPE International’s site to make a donation.

Rekindling passion may be key to happiness HEALTHWISE

y recent high school reunion was a transformative experience. Of

course, it was an opportunity to catch up with old classmates from Burnaby North. We learned where the years had taken us, what field of work engaged us and how the focus of our lives had been redirected by our relationships and our families. As adolescents graduating and thinking we were already grown up, we had

pretty firm opinions about one another and how the world worked. Of course, we thought we were smarter than our parents. But the experiences of early adulthood soon taught us how little we knew, that our parents may have been wiser than they appeared and that life was more unpredictable than we had thought. With graduation, we were keen

to get out of the restrictive cocoons of high school and the family home and do what we wanted. All of us would learn that there would be many more challenges to getting what you want and being happy. Two of the biggest were discovering what we really want and learning what we really need to be happy. Reacquainting ourselves with old class-

mates allowed us to fill in the gaps in our memories and to discover the more complete adults we had become. We discovered that the ensuing years have allowed all of us to have more in common than before. In our disparate paths to new jobs, schools and cities, we have all fallen in and out of love and dealt with loss and death. Most of us mar-

ried and raised children. Everyone had matured and grown wiser. We were all grown up now and much different from our teenaged selves. A reunion can also be a reunion with an old self – your self at 17. It can be amusing or bittersweet to recall your hopes and dreams. What did you want the most?

Reunion: Time for pause continued from page 11

What was your promise? There may be sadness in not fulfilling that promise – not writing that world-changing novel, not discovering the cure for cancer or not making it to Hollywood. The circumstances of our lives, our own fears and unforeseen challenges may have held us back. Yet we may have discovered that what we wanted then was not what our true selves really needed to feel fulfilled. Many of us found meaning in other ways and in other places. Most of us have found this in our most important relationships. We could look back at our adult lives so far and be content with the direction of our lives. We could also look back to our more inspired and fiery younger selves and ask, “What remains?” It can be instructive to revisit the passions of our youth. What engaged you most? If you have given up art, music or writing, ask not only “Why?” but also “Why not?” Why not

rediscover your talents, your passions and your calling? One classmate spoke passionately about how he answered his calling to coach and inspire young athletes to achieve their potential. Others have found meaning in the raising of their children, some of whom are now adults. Some are ready to ask, “Why not do what I need to do to be truly happy?” This reunion was a celebration of our shared human experience. It was as if we were saying, “Look how we have all grown up!” It was an opportunity for self–discovery, and for some an inspiring challenge to fulfill their promise, a new promise today to reach our potentials. In another decade, I hope to attend another reunion where everyone will share stories of how we each answered our calling and passion, and realized our potential for happiness. Dr. Wong is a family physician.

Task force finds less graffiti Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Tagging has decreased in Burnaby since the mayor’s task force on graffiti formed three years ago, according to a report presented to council for Monday night’s meeting. Reported graffiti incidents on private property have decreased to 67 this past year, compared with 203 from June 2007 to June 2008. Reported graffiti incidents on traffic signal control boxes have

decreased to six in the past year, down from 170 in the year between June 2007 and June 2008. Graffiti on signs, barricades, sidewalks, fences, bus shelters retaining walls, over and underpasses, sanitation containers, lamp standards and parks equipment has also gone down since 2008. However, there was more graffiti reported on retaining walls, over and underpasses, and parks equipment this last year than the period from June 2008 to June 2009.

The report credited Burnaby’s anti-graffiti wraps and community mural program with keeping graffiti down. The task force also reported a decrease in reported graffiti incidents on public utilities. B.C. Hydro only removes profane graffiti, but SkyTrain, Telus and Canada Post remove graffiti at the city’s request. Public education and awareness efforts are another element of the task force’s strategy, as well as six annual graffiti cleanups per year.

use yogurt and whipping cream for creaminess. Thai curries often use lemon grass, kaffir lime leaves and coconut milk. Authentic Thai food brings together a balance of hot, sour, sweet and salty flavours. You will notice in a Thai restaurant that the condiments usually available come in these flavours, to round out the balance for every dish. Thai dishes pair well with rice and noodles. I recommend jasmine rice, as it is indigenous to Thailand and really complements the fragrant dishes served with them. Basmati rice would work well, too. Today’s recipe, Bangkok Bean Curry, plays on the flavours of Thai cuisine with a Western twist that comes from red kidney beans. It has the heat of red curry paste, sourness from limes, sweetness of coconut milk and also saltiness to thrill all of your tastebuds. Thai Page 15

This flavourful vegetarian option makes a great non-traditional chili recipe when entertaining friends and family. The recipe uses items that can easily be kept in your pantry and fridge for a quick weeknight meal: the red curry paste should be easy to find on your grocer’s shelves, along with the other ingredients. You may also notice green curry paste and yellow curry paste on the same shelf and wonder how they are different: they are hotter than the red curry paste. As always, enjoy this flavourful dish with family and friends. ◆ Bangkok Bean Curry Serves 4 to 6. 15 ml (1 tablespoon) oil 250 ml (1 cup) chopped onion 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 15 to 20 ml (3 to 4 teaspoons) red curry paste 1 can (796 ml) red kidney

By Dr. Panshi Peng T.C.M.D. Fatigue is one of the most common complaints that doctors, from both mainstream and alternative medicine, hear about. People with fatigue typically report a sense of weariness, a lack of energy, listlessness, or a generalized disinterest in family, work, and leisure activities. This can often cause serious disruptions in one’s life. On a short-term basis, fatigue should not be of great concern and is usually the result of lifestyle choices. However, if fatigue persists, it may be an indicator of a more serious underlying cause, and you should consult a qualified medical practitioner. Persistent, abnormal fatigue may be indicative of depression, anxiety, infections (mononucleosis or tuberculosis), endocrine disorders (hypothyroidism or diabetes), heart failure, chronic lung, kidney or liver disease, anemia, cancer, poor nutrition, or even the result of medications.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been effective with such problems; it replenishes the energy necessary for activity and healing by using acupuncture and herbs to help boost the vital energy of the body. In TCM, energy is known as Qi (“chee”), which flows through an intricate network of energy highways in the body called meridians, and is responsible for the functioning of our organs, immune system, and hormonal system. In TCM, Qi is a very important part of life, and health. Fatigue is the most obvious symptom of a Qi deficiency. Other manifestations

include susceptibility to diseases, ranging from viral or bacterial infections to rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes. Qi deficiency causing fatigue may also be seen as the cause of more serious disease, rather than just the result, so TCM has developed effective treatments. Perhaps the most famous substance known as a benefit for lack of energy is Ginseng. Ginseng, Royal Jelly, and other substances used to treat fatigue are thought to generate more Qi in the body by specifically nourishing the organs that are directly responsible for the production of energy. Acupuncture works in a similar way. By the insertion of very fine needles in certain parts of the body, the Qi available in the body can be directed to the organs that are necessary for the production of more Qi. If these organs are undernourished or deficient in any way, the production of Qi will be impeded and fatigue may be one of the results. Traditional Chinese Medicine addresses the problem of fatigue in a completely unique way and has potential to treat fatigue while the cause is being identified. The next time you feel fatigued, consider using traditional Chinese herbs, or visit an acupuncturist who may be able to help you. For more information, please visit: Dr. Panshi Peng, TCMD is a governmentlicensed practitioner of acupuncture, Dr. of Traditonal Chinese Medicine, His office is located at the corner of Joyce and Kingsway.

Seniors turn retirement into a golden opportunity advance or as planned advances over a set period of time. They can even combine a lump sum advance at the beginning with ongoing advances over time. No payments are required until the home is sold or both homeowners move out. Burt and Irene loved their home – and all the family memories that went with it – and had no intention of selling anytime soon. So they contacted their financial planner who helped them access more than 35% of the equity locked up in their home with CHIP Home Income Plan. She also helped them invest most of the money in low-risk, income yielding securities, supplementing their monthly cash flow. Next month, Burt and Irene are taking their four grandchildren to meet Mickey Mouse in Disney World. It’s an all-expensespaid trip, courtesy of a proud Grandma and Grandpa. Burt and Irene of Parry Sound, Ont., felt fortunate to retire when they were in their late 50s. But after a dozen fun-filled years of travelling and assisting their children with major expenses, the couple, who are now in their early 70s, noticed that the RRSP savings they thought would last a lifetime, were running low. To maintain their lifestyle with a consistent and dependable income stream, Burt and Irene considered a range of options including traditional bank loans or selling the family home. One day, a friend told them about a CHIP Home Income Plan reverse mortgage, which allows the senior homeowners to access their home equity but make no payments until they sell and move. A reverse mortgage is a home equity borrowing solution that lets seniors 60 years and older turn their residence into a source

of tax-free cash. For those like Burt and Irene who are retired, a reverse mortgage provides extra income to travel more often, buy a holiday property, invest in a new hobby or a small business, or assist children or grandchildren with their education or other major purchases. Homeowners can choose how they want to receive the money – either in one lump sum

At Acoustica they can test your hearing and help you select and fit the best hearing aid all the same day by producing their own custom hearing products inhouse, Acoustica has dramatically reduced manufacturing costs and they pass the


savings on to the consumer. Because Acoustica makes the shells and assemble the aids on premise customer wait times are reduced, and in most cases if repairs or servicing are needed the on-site technicians can do them while the customer waits. If offering quality, value & convenience isn’t enough, Acoustica’s motto is “satisfaction guaranteed or money refunded”. Acoustica Hearing is located at 4564 Dawson St, Burnaby, 15232 - 32 Ave, Surrey and 2432 Marine Dr, West Vancouver.

“After buying my present hearing aids from you about 7 years ago, I recently needed regular servicing on both units. This required some parts and adjustments. You did this in less than an hour while I waited in your office ... I will definitely recommend your excellent customer service and hearing aids to anyone wanting to improve their hearing.” E.C. Weber “I would like to express my appreciation for the service you have given me. I requested a repair on my hearing aid which was purchased from another well known company. Not only did you repair it, but did so in 20 minutes. I was in a hurry and could have come back another day. Your charge was $250 less than the minimum quoted to be by the original supplier ... You may be sure I will be telling my many senior friends about your company and service.” Sincerely, N.A. Hansen

Renovate your space

new vision in quality lighting

Think colour

Traditional laundry rooms had bland, white walls and no personality. But how much more relaxing would ironing countless shirts be if the space was serene and inspiring? At the same time, don’t be afraid to choose something bright and make the floor a focal point. Function is fabulous

From dull to dramatic

Make the most out of your laundry room by building in a work space. Place a countertop over front-loading appliances to make the perfect folding station. Open shelving to house your detergent keeps them close by.

Laundry makeover


one are the days when the laundry room was tucked in a dark, dusty corner of the basement. But if you’re thinking about redoing your space, where do you start?

Savvy storage The laundry room is a great place to store extra towels, cleaning supplies and paper towels. Built-in

cabinets are the ideal solution and can help keep things organized. Affordable open shelves are perfect for a more casual space and keep things at your fingertips. Beauty, not boring The laundry room is still a room of utility, but that doesn’t mean you need to have bland appliances and fixtures. Look for coloured washers and dryers. When it comes to your sink: consider a stainless steel finish or an undermount sink Make the water station more functional. Delta Faucet’s Linden faucet features a high arc spout, a pull-out spray head and multi-flow technology allowing you to easily increase the stream to a high flow, so filling large buckets is quick and easy.

Jrs. still fighting for playoff place Tom Berridge sports editor

There is a lot of fight still left in the junior A Burnaby Lakers. The junior Lakers gave notice that they will not be easy pickings in the playoffs, following a gruelling 8-5 loss to the first-place Coquitlam Adanacs at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Sunday. Burnaby withstood a 20-8 first-period barrage of shots to get out of the period trailing just 2-1, but ran into trouble in the middle frame, giving up five goals before outscoring the Adanac juggernaut in the final stanza. “A loss is a loss. We’re fighting for playoff positioning,” said Lakers defender Nick Benevoli, who scored Burnaby’s third goal of the game late in the second period. “We’re missing bodies in the lineup, it might have helped, but we have to go back to practice and work on loose balls, faceoffs, short-man, power plays and try to get better.” Lakers head coach Mike Kuppan, although pleased with the team’s effort, agreed with Benevoli’s assessment. “We were able to run with them. I certainly think we have a good chance. We just have to limit our mistakes,” said Kuppan. “Loose balls were the key to that game tonight. We have to maintain it, and it’s killing us.” American import

Jason Lang/burnaby now

In the office: Burnaby Laker righthander Jackson Decker gets into shooting range against the Nanaimo Timbermen in Saturday’s win at home.

Keaton Ohara tied the contest 1-1 after Coquitlam’s Mark Matthews counted his first of four goals on the night. Captain Ross Dougan then drew the home team to within one goal with a breakaway tally from Burnaby’s other U.S. field

player, Mason Mundell. Patrick Bayliss did everything he could to keep his team in it, stopping 48 shots in the Burnaby goal. The Lakers averted a loss at home to the Nanaimo Timbermen with a big, third-period rally on Saturday.

Burnaby counted eight goals in the final period to eke out a 12-11 comeback win over the junior T-Men at the Copeland centre. Trailing 9-4 heading into the third period, Blake Mattinson sparked the comeback with two tallies in the opening minute

of play in the period. The Lakers then rattled off five more in a row in a fourminute span to retake the lead. Nick Bilic, with his 15th goal of the year, and Jordan Jarvis, with the game-winner in the final 11 seconds of play, salvaged the two points for Burnaby. Mackenzie Davis led the Lakers with a sixpoint game, including his fourth hat trick of the year. Mattinson also scored three times in a five-point outing. Zach Boychuk made 46 saves in goal for Nanaimo in a losing cause. Bayliss came on in relief of Brodie MacDonald in the third period to post the win for the Lakers. With two games left to play in the regular season, Burnaby is unlikely to catch Victoria for third place. The chief concern for the Lakers is Nanaimo and Delta, both two points behind and with two and one games in hand, respectively. A key matchup for the Lakers could come down to a head-to-head encounter with the Islanders next Sunday at home. “We expect, like every other team in the league, to be in the Minto. But we have to play it gameby-game,” Benevoli said. “Right now we have to worry about the next game. It starts in PoCo.” Burnaby is in Port Coquitlam this Friday to meet the Saints. Game time is 8 p.m.

Leaderless WLA Lakers a vulnerable target Tom Berridge sports editor

The Burnaby Lakers are looking more and more like the team senior A lacrosse fans were hoping they’d be. The senior A club put together what might have been its best single period in recent memory, scoing six unanswered goals in the middle frame en route to a 106 victory over the visiting Maple Ridge Burrards Friday. The win, Burnaby’s third straight at home, didn’t improve the 4-4 club’s overall standing in the Western Lacrosse Association, but it did give evidence of a team that has made good use of its practice time and brought those improvements to the game floor. Calvin Craig started the onslaught, diving through the

crease for a goal in the first minute-and-a-half of the period. Cam Sedgwick, whose return to the fold has been the impetus for the team’s upswing, then tied the contest at 3-3, cutting to the baseline for his fourth goal in three games. Trevor Moore, Dane Stevens, Scott Tinning and Neil Arbogast, with his first goal of the year on just his third shot on goal this season, then followed suit, giving the Lakers a 7-3 advantage heading into the final frame. The half dozen goals were highlighted with two particularly heads-up efforts in transition. The first was by Patrick Corrigan, who picked up his first point with the senior Lakers, fending off three Maple Ridge checkers to head-man the ball to a wide open Stevens, who finished off

the play. The other one was Arbogast’s breakaway goal that was set up by veteran Rory Graham’s crafty stick work in transition to find the open man. Burnaby coach Bob Johnston said the strong player turnouts at practice are finally showing positive results. “We’ve turned the corner. We’re playing hard. Each and every player is competing for minutes,” Johnston said. The proof is in the numbers, Johnston added. In recent games, the Lakers have dropped their number of turnovers in a period from more than 20 turnovers per frame down to six or eight, he said. But Johnston warned that just one statistic does not dispel all the problems before the club.

“We’re still a young team, and one thing is they’re not handling leads very well,” Johnston added. Evidence of that came in the final period as the two teams traded three goals apiece. It also came into play on Sunday, when Burnaby, without Sedgwick in the lineup, went down to defeat 8-4 in Maple Ridge. In Friday’s win, Burnaby took an 8-3 lead on Tinning’s second goal of the game and 10th of the season. They then led 9-4, when Owen MacNab potted his second of the year on transition with a nice fake to finish. But Maple Ridge scored twice, just seconds apart in the final minute of play. Team captain Bryan Safarik finally silenced the Burrards with Lakers Page 22

Third round good for local draft Tom Berridge sports editor

A handful of local hockey players were picked up in the NHL’s annual junior entry draft last weekend. Jordan Weal, a former Northwest Giants centre currently lighting it up on the same line with Jordan Eberle on the Regina Pats, was one of three well known faces to Lower Mainland viewers to go in the third round of the draft Saturday. Weal was taken 70th overall by the Los Angeles Kings. Weal finished third overall in the Western Hockey League in scoring, garnering 102 points, including 35 goals for the Pats last year. The 5-10 playmaker was pegged to go in the second round among domestic prospects by NHL Central Scouting. Five picks later Kevin Sundher, who captained the Burnaby Winter Club to a Western Canadian AAA bantam title in 2007, was snapped up by the Buffalo Sabres with the 75th overall pick. Sundher, the B.C. minor hockey player of the year as a 15-year-old, scored 25 goals and had 61 total points in the Dub with the Chilliwacks Bruins last season. Also going to Buffalo in the third round, 80th overall, was Calgary Hitmen defenceman Matt MacKenzie of New Westminster. The 6-2 blueliner scored six times and assisted on 34 others in the regular season and another six goals and 16 helpers in the playoffs to help take the Hitmen all the way to the Memorial Cup. MacKenzie has played three seasons in the WHL. “I was kind of in the spot I didn’t know what to expect,” said MacKenzie, when contacted Monday in Osoyoos. “As the picks kept going I was getting a little nervous. But I was happy with where I am in Buffalo. “You just kind of take a sigh and everything you have worked for has happened. And then it’s back Draft Page 22

Your BC Lions — In Their Own Words I grew up in North Vancouver and have been playing football since my early teens. My size kind of dictated what position I play (offensive line) but I’ve learned to really love my role on the club and on the offence. As the centre I do get to touch the ball on every play, so it all starts with me. Growing up, I was very close to my father and he was a big influence on me during times I needed him most. Picking my college, dealing with adversity, being the best person and player I can be were a product of his guidance and it’s one of the reasons I love taking part in our club’s community programs. Among the programs I take part in, I would say Read, Write and Roar is among my favourites because I’ve seen firsthand what happens to a young person’s life when they grasp the ability to read. The benefits of literacy last a lifetime and I take pride in knowing that I might be planting the seed for a future reader. Dean Valli in action on the field. Photo courtesy BC Lions.

Burnaby golfers finish in top two at zone junior boys’ championships

at the Crown Isle golf course in Courtenay on July 6 through 9. Joining Belle and Tolusso as qualifiers for the B.C. junior championships will be STM teammates Kevin Vigna, Lucas Gatto and Joshua Punzo. Vigna finished in 16th place at the zones with a tworound 153 score, including a two-over 74 on the final day. Gatto and Punzo placed back in a tie for 26th spot with 15-over-par 158 totals. Also tied at 158 was Wyatt Racette of Burnaby. Racette also qualified for the junior provincials. The five-member STM team recently won the B.C. high school AA championship golf title for a third straight year by a whopping 44-stroke advantage in Squamish on June 1.

St. Thomas More Collegiate student Alan Tolusso placed first among under-15-year-olds at the recent Zone 4 u-18 junior boys’ golf championships. Tolusso, just 14, shot a four-over-par 147 to finish just behind winner James Fahy and STM schoolmate Michael Belle at the junior championship played at Northlands golf course on June 9 and completed at the Vancouver Golf Club course in Coquitlam June 20. Fahy carded a two-round total of 145, while Belle, at 146, and Tolusso finished with the high round of even par 72s. Tolusso, who tied for second place in the junior invitationals at both Point Grey and Squamish golf courses, had an opening round 75 at Northlands. Both Belle and Tolusso qualified for the B.C.

a goal, catching the goalie out of the crease. Drew Dickie posted his first win in goal for Burnaby, stopping 34 shots from the Burrards. While good coaching and player work habits can go a long way to improving a team, the return of Sedgwick to the Lakers’ lineup cannot be understated, said Safarik. “He’s really helped. Everyone out there is totally working hard every shift,” Safarik added. “(Sedgwick) has the movement going so well on offence. Everyone is buying into the system. “Everyone has more confidence, too. Bob (Johnston) has got a good system, and it’s really beneficial. But as soon as Sedgwick came back, everyone tried to move up to his level.” Burnaby remains in a tie for fifth place with Nanaimo but currently enjoys two or three games in hand on all but two other teams in the league. “It’s a process, but we’re on our way. We’re competitive with everyone now. We’re not getting outplayed,” Johnston added. Burnaby’s next game is in Langley on Wednesday. Game time is 7:45 p.m.

to work,” he said. In less than a week, MacKenzie will be taking part in his first NHL development camp for Buffalo’s past and present draft picks in Niagara Falls, beginning on July 4. MacKenzie was drafted out of the Burnaby Winter Club, where he says he got his first introduction to a systems coach under John Batchelor. He also learned on the job from another solid Hitmen defenceman, Karl Alzner, who was drafted No. 5 overall to the Washington Capitals in 2007. “I learned a lot from him, too. We both are more on the defensive-minded side, making simple, easy plays and letting the forwards do the work,” MacKenzie said. As an 18-year-old, MacKenzie would be ineligible to play pro in the American Hockey League next season. It is more probable he will play a fourth

season of major junior in Calgary with the Hitmen. Another BWC product, Austin Madaisky, was taken in the fifth round, 124th overall, by the Columbus Blue Jackets. Madaisky, a 6-2 defenceman with the Kamloops Blazers of the WHL, had been listed as a possible fourth-round pick by Central Scouting among North American players. Port Moody’s Ryan Johansen of the Portland Winterhawks was the highest B.C. pick, going in the first round fourth overall to Columbus on Friday. A total of 43 major junior Western league players were taken by NHL clubs. None were drafted by the Vancouver Canucks. The B.C. Hockey League had four players taken in the annual pro draft, including Penticton Vees forward Beau Bennett, who was the Interior conference rookie of the year last season. Bennett, a 20th overall pick, was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

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 (

SUDOKU Fun By The Numbers

Like puzzles? Then you'll love Sudoku. This mind-bending puzzle will have you hooked from the moment you square off, so sharpen your pencil and put your Sudoku savvy to the test!


Fun By The Numbers

Here's How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
