Opponents to the new harmonized sales tax are planning a “celebratory rally” outside Richard Lee’s Burnaby North MLA office on Thursday. The rally was timed to follow an announcement whether the anti-HST initiative petition will pass. Elections B.C. was checking the petition’s signatures, and the results were supposed to be released to the Fight HST leader Bill Vander Zalm on Tuesday or Wednesday, after NOW deadlines. Fight HST lead organizer Chris Delaney was already predicting the petition’s success, since many of B.C.’s ridings had been cleared already. “We’ve heard confirmation the petition is likely to pass,” Delaney said. “It’s a slam dunk at this point.” As for Lee, Delaney said there seems to be strong movement in some parts of Burnaby to have the MLA recalled. “Richard has been particularly supportive of the government’s role on the HST, and I think people are pretty upset,” Delaney said. “That just makes him a little more recallable.” The NDP’s Burnaby North constituency association is organizing the rally. President Allan Zdunic said Lee’s office HST Page 5

Events Calendar





Chow down on everything from Jamaican food to crepes to the everpopular mini donut at the Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival this weekend. The 11th annual festival has about 10 food vendors, including Cheyenne Coffee, Lemon Heaven, Tin Lizzy, Mr. Tube Steak and Domino’s Pizza. There will also be a small bistro-style spot with seating. A buffet is also being set up at the Shadbolt Centre of the Arts patio, with seating available indoors, according to Bob Farahani, supervisor of the city’s food services department. The buffet is $17.85 plus tax per person. Prices for food on the rest of the site vary from $3 to $10, Farahani said. The Hilton Vancouver Metrotown is

providing BBQ meals to patrons in the VIP tent. For those who prefer to bring their own food, picnics and coolers are allowed, but glass bottles, cans, unsealed beverage containers and alcoholic drinks are not. The festival is licensed and those who want to purchase drinks onsite must get drinking age verification wristbands at the gates. There are alcohol-free sites available near the stages and in the back area of the festival, as beer, cider and wine are served at the festival, he said. “We have a designated site for people and families who don’t want to be in the drinking area,” Farahani said. There is a limit of two drinks per patron, he added. The festival has worked with most of the vendors for about 10 years, Farahani said. This year, Dim Sum Express may be added to the roster, but that had not been confirmed by press time. “We consider it,” he said of new ven-

dors, “as long as it fits the site.” Vendors were chosen back in March, Farahani said. This year, food kiosk owners were required to use recyclable containers, as well as providing vegetarian and healthy food options if possible. “We’re definitely going that route,” Farahani said of the new environmentally responsible requirements. Taj Mahal, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Serena Ryder, Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real, Colin Linden, Yukon Blonde, and Little Miss Higgins are playing this year’s blues festival. Shore FM’s Sounds of Summer songwriting competition winner Zaac Pick will also play the concert. The Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival will be held at the newly renovated Deer Lake Park on Saturday, August 14. Festival gates open at 1 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at www.

Local 580. “Whenever you have a third-party business, you know the company (Safeway) can change distributors.” While the warehouse has been in operation since the 1950s, Summit didn’t take over the warehouse and trucking contract until 1996. According to Lakusta, Safeway informed Summit that they were moving their warehouse to Langley and using a company called Cold Logic Corp. Lakusta said many of the union members were disappointed at the news, but the one silver lining is that the closure came with a sixmonth notice. “It would have been a lot harder if the guys had come

into work and the doors were locked,” said Lakusta. “I guess the goal now is to do everything in an orderly manner.” “The union will do what we can to place them in jobs on other sites,” he said. “We will also look at whatever legal means we have as well.” The closure means that the 44-acre property, when redeveloped, will have the potential to change the entire South Burnaby area. Coun. Paul McDonell, when informed of the closure on Tuesday morning, said part of the property has been earmarked for parkland. Calls to Canada Safeway’s public affairs and media relations line were not returned by deadline.

HST: MLA is a target was targeted for a couple of reasons: he may be a candidate for recall, and he also sits on the Select Standing Committee on Legislative Initiatives, a group of MLAs that will decide what happens next with the initiative petition. The committee has two options: send an attached bill through the legislative process or send the issue out for the public to vote on. The association has targeted Lee’s office throughout the anti-HST campaign. Lee also made the “HST hit list,” a collection of 24 MLAs who could be targeted for recall because of the large number of petition signatures collected in their ridings. The Thursday rally will be on the sidewalk in front of Lee’s office at 1833 Willingdon Ave. from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. “We know many people were happy to sign the petition and we are happy to thank them for all their help. We are inviting anyone in Burnaby who wants to join us to come by,” Zdunic said. Lee was not available for an interview. Meanwhile, Delaney said the Fight HST campaign would be tied up in court with two legal challenges. One is from a pro-HST alliance of six business associations, who are arguing that the petition is invalid because its attached bill is a matter of federal jurisdiction – not provincial. The other challenge is from the Fight HST camp, which is questioning the legality of the province’s move to impose harmonization. “We actually say the tax was not duly constituted,” Delaney said, explaining that the agreement to bring

in the HST didn’t actually go through the provincial legislative process. Only a bill to get rid of the PST was voted on by provincial MLAs. The HST agreement between the federal and provincial governments was signed by the Finance Minister Colin Hansen and not voted on by MLAs, he added.

the media is hungry for polls – particularly in late summer. That would make sense. If, after all, a group that makes its money on knowing about people and their preferences hasn’t figured out the media’s weak spots – well, ‘nuff said. This month, there was the poll about Canadians and swearing. Seems like we’re more prone to do it. In fact, the Brits and us swear more at work. But the poll also looked at how much we swear in front of our friends and whether we think our doctors should swear. All valuable information.

And then there was the poll last month about the Liberals and if they could win if Gordon Campbell was replaced by Carole Taylor or Dianne Watts. Seems that it wouldn’t matter who was in charge of the Liberals – the NDP would still be miles ahead. Rather tame stuff. However, we’re still waiting for the poll on which politician voters would most like to swear at in person. We’re thinking a couple of city politicos might be miles ahead in that poll as well.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Board of trade right to call for more action on homelessness Dear Editor:

Re: BOT pleads case for the homeless, Burnaby NOW, Aug. 7. Kudos to the Burnaby Board of Trade and its CEO, Darlene Gering, for the recent show of support for increased public action on homelessness. If a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, the board of trade took a giant stride forward last week. Kudos again. The board of trade has now explicitly acknowledged that funding the capital cost of social housing with tax dollars can actually save taxpayers (includ-

ing businesses) money over the long-term by reducing subsequent annual spending on health care and policing. The board of trade has also implicitly noted that actions such as ignoring the homeless (hoping they drift away) or actively calling 9-1-1 (wasting policing resources) are not just socially unconscionable – they do not deliver value. Perhaps the board of trade will now follow up on these breakthroughs in perception by including Burnaby City Hall in its call to action on homelessness. For it is Mayor Derek Corrigan, and his BCA councillors, who levy most of the taxes that fund Burnaby police services – not Ottawa. And it is civic taxpayers who stand to benefit the

most when Burnaby finally takes some of Metro Vancouver’s permanent emergency shelter beds, through moving the Progressive Housing shelter proposal forward. Members of the Burnaby Board of Trade residents in Burnaby should pay particular attention to this last point. They actually pay twice for their police service; once in the 48 per cent of the property levy assigned to general business and once in the 46 per cent assigned to residences. These doubly-taxed individuals deserve the maximum value for both portions of their policing dollars; not the frustration of watching Mayor Corrigan waste money having the RCMP and city workers line up to play “catch and release” with homeless people in Central Park. Let’s see if Mayor Corrigan’s recent increase in salary has sharpened his perception of providing “value for money” in public services. If not, perhaps Ms. Gering can talk to him. She plainly gets this point. G. Bruce Friesen, Burnaby

Guns not the problem

Dear Editor:

In the Aug. 7, Burnaby NOW, Letters to the Editor, Derek Wilson (from Port Moody, no less) wrote: “I was pleased to read that Chicago voted 45-1 in favour of the new law which … bans gun sales and shooting ranges in the city.” He wrote, “There is no community support for shooting ranges, especially outdoors in Burnaby.” Tch, tch, Derek, for such utter discrimination. Discrimination that smacks of both control obsession and oppressiveness. Those aren’t very admirable traits. Try instead a little tolerance.

By the way, Chicago’s decision is of no surprise, as the state of Illinois, where has long been the last holdout for a gun law that allows U.S. citizens to carry hidden firearms for their protection. Neither Chicago, nor Illinois, with its murder rate of 6.1 (per 100,000 people) is exactly a good role model – never was. Perhaps you should look towards say, Colorado – the murder rate of which is at an American low of 3.2, and in that state they even allow open carry for their citizens. Alaska’s rate is at 4.1, and it doesn’t force citizens to take out permits for their guns.

Dear Editor:

My grandson is 14 and well-built, wearing a size large in tops and pants, and because of his age, has always had the provincial sales tax taken off his bill – that is until the HST came into effect. Recently, his mom and him went shopping for more clothes, and she was told that he had to pay full price because he is classified as wearing adult sizes in the clothes. He is not an adult – he is a kid of 14. I don’t care how big you are or how small your build is, when it says no tax for kids clothes, 14 and under, that’s what it should be. To me, he is being penalized for being his size, and I think that is insulting to him and others who are now paying all the taxes on their clothes. It is the same as him buying shoes. He is a size eight. Again, he must pay adult prices with no tax removed. I think this is really unacceptable how this store has set its own views on how your child must look to be exempted for paying taxes. I’m sure he is not the only one that has had this problem.

No HST for grandson


The B.C. Liberals have for years dined out on the supposed fiscal incompetence of the NDP government in the 1990s. They love to talk about the “dismal decade” and such things as the fast ferries fiasco as a way of perpetuating the idea that New Democrats cannot manage anything to do with economics. But when you start going through the list of cost overruns that have piled up on the B.C. Liberals’ watch, it’s hard to take seriously their boasts of being so much better

on economic matters than New Democrats. Aside from the B.C. Place roof overrun, there are such things as the new Vancouver Convention Centre, which cost almost $900 million – almost double the original estimate. The Port Mann Bridge project has ballooned from $600 million to $3.3 billion. For years, the government has insisted the costs for the 2010 Olympics would be $600 million, and not a penny more. Last month, it finally admitted the tally was about $925 million – an overrun of more than 50 per cent.

Tips for smooth festival fun Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Burnaby Blues Week has already kicked off and the Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival is only two days away. Gates open on Saturday at 1 p.m. and the concert starts at 2 p.m. The main gate, next to the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts is open from 1 to 9 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the main gate and Will Call tickets can be picked up as well. Festival organizers suggest patrons pick up Will Call tickets from the Shadbolt’s box office before the day of the festival. The west gate, on the northwest side of Deer Lake Park, is only open to ticket holders and is open until 6 p.m. Patrons will have to go east to the main gate after 6 p.m. to enter. There is no public parking available on or near the festival site so festival-goers are encouraged to use alternative forms of transit: public transit, bicycles (there are bike racks near the main and west gates), taxis, or the free Lynch Bus Lines shuttle from the British Columbia Institute of Technology. Pay parking is in effect at BCIT on the day of the festival. The cost is $4.50 for the day. There are portable washrooms on site, one public pay phone at the main gate and an ATM is located at Spirit

Square. As for what to bring, chairs are permitted but organizers ask that patrons bring low back chairs with short legs if possible. There is a special needs seating area as well, those interested should contact the Shadbolt’s box office in advance. Only working dogs are permitted at the festival. There is free water at two locations on site. Commercially sealed plastic bottles of nonalcoholic beverages such as juice or water can be brought on the site. Coolers are permitted as well. Attendees cannot bring the following to the festival: alcohol, musical instruments, glass containers or cans, professional cameras, recording equipment, umbrellas, tents or tarps, banners, Frisbees or throwing objects, knives or weapons or laser pointers. Check the forecast before coming to the festival to prepare for the outdoor venue. There is a kids art activity zone on site, Art’s Home, from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. Children must be supervised. The zone is smoke and alcohol-free. The 11th annual festival has about 10 food vendors, including Cheyenne Coffee, Lemon Heaven, Tin Lizzy, Mr. Tube Steak and Domino’s Pizza. There will also be a small bistrostyle spot with seating and a buffet at the Shadbolt Centre of the Arts

Scottish play: The SFU Pipe Band are in Scotland getting ready to defend their world championship title.

SFU shoots for a hat trick in bagpipe competition Andrew Fleming staff reporter

It seems somehow fitting that a band from a school named after a Scotsman is one of only three from outside of the United Kingdom to ever win a world bagpipe championship title. The 47 members of the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band can blow their own horns for being six-time world champions, and, depending on the outcome of this year’s competition taking place Saturday in Glasgow, they could make it a lucky

number seven with their third in a row. The piping hot pipers have been dubbed “the Beatles of the bagpipe world,” and the fab 47 are the subject of a new documentary, Battle of the Bagpipes: A Journey to the World Pipe Band Championship, that aired last week on the CBC showing what it’s like to play in the band as they prepare for last year’s competition. “We wanted to tell the story of the band’s rise to the top at the Worlds through the eyes of these incredibly talented pipers

and drummers, and of the sacrifices they’ve made to get there,” said film producer Jordan Paterson of SFU’s Learning Instructional and Development Centre. Filmed on location in Scotland by SFU cameraman Thomas Buchan in the days leading up to the annual competition, the hourlong documentary focuses candidly on eight band members, illustrating how each generation embraces playing the revered – and reviled – instrument which is now more than 5,000 years old. At the heart of the senior band are the Lee brothers, Jack, pipe sergeant, and Terry, pipe major. Both have been members for more than three decades. Taught to play the pipes by their great-grandfather, who emigrated from Glasgow in the 1940s, they’ve passed the family tradition on to the next generation through their sons Alistair, Andrew and John Lee. “The film tells the story well, it captures the mood and spirit of the band as we prepare for what has become a defining moment for us every year,” said Terry Lee. The world championships draws thousands of spectators and more than 200 bands to Glasgow Green each year. “The pressure is definitely on,” said Jack Lee of the possible three-peat. “But another win is possible. We know what we have to do. We have to be very thorough. We will play well and the instruments will be well-tuned. There should be no surprises.” Lee said the SFU pipers and drummers are ready for both events in the elite Grade one division, including the March, Strathspey and Reel, and the Medley, a five-to-seven minute performance chosen and arranged over the course of several months by the band. This year the band will also join with one of their closest rivals – Northern Ireland’s Field Marshall Montgomery band - for a

sold-out concert in Belfast prior to the competition. “We’re rivals – each of us has won six world championships – but we’re also friends,” said Lee. The bands have jockeyed for position for years, with the Irish band placing sec-

ond in the last two years to SFU’s first place. Prior to that, SFU placed second twice while their rivals took first. Lee says with a record number of bands – 239 are competing in various levels of competition this year

‘One of the wonders of the world’

Blues and Roots Fest headliner Kenny Wayne Shepherd has been singing the blues since he was just 16 years old Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Kenny Wayne Shepherd shot to success as a rock and blues performer when he was just 16 years old, recording his first record in his senior year of high school. James Brown referred to him as “one of the wonders of the world.” He is best known for his guitar playing, and his strong mixture of blues-infused rock. “I think it was great, I got a head start on my career,” he says in a phone interview from Los Angeles. “The kind of music I’m doing, I think it will afford me a lifelong career.” Shepherd points out that blues artists he admires, such as B.B. King, who is still playing well into his 80s, have been playing for most of their lives. “It was a unique opportunity for me at a very young age, and I’m glad I was able to take advantage of it because this is definitely what I feel I was meant to do,” he says. The boy wonder has grown into his gift, playing with the likes of King, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones. “I’ve gotten to play with so many of my heroes,” he says. “B.B. King has become like a father to me.” Guitarist Hubert Sumlin, who played with Howlin’ Wolf, is also like another adopted father to him, he adds. His 2007 documentary and live album, 10 Days Out; Blues from the Back Roads was his way of giving back to the blues com-

munity, which had done so much for him, he says. The project was a journey with four friends, visiting veteran blues performers and playing with them, and included King, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Sumlin, Pinetop Perkins and Honeyboy Edwards, as well as other talented musicians. Shepherd, who is now 33, has spent this summer touring, doing mostly outdoor festivals and charity events, he says. He has been working on a live album, which will be released in September, and a studio album as well. The live album includes some of the musicians from 10 Days Out and has a number of new songs as well, Shepherd says. The primary change he’s made is focusing slightly more on the songs as a whole, he says, as he never wanted to be just focused on guitar playing. “I never wanted to be all about the guitar, I’ve always felt the lyrics, the vocal melody, are just as important,” he says. Shepherd likes both intimate indoor venues and outdoor festivals, he says, because the fans respond well to both. “In the summer, I think the fans like the outdoor festivals, because it’s a big festive atmosphere and they like to be out in the nice weather,” he says. “But ultimately the fans prefer the smaller venues that are more intimate because they like to feel closer to the artist.” Shepherd will be playing this year’s Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival, along with Taj Mahal, Serena Ryder, Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real, Colin Linden, Yukon Blonde and Little Miss Higgins. The 11th annual Blues and Roots Festival Contributed photo/burnaby now will be held on Saturday, Aug. 14 from 12:30 p.m. onwards at the newly renovated Deer Good Shepherd: Musician Kenny Wayne Shepherd is among the performers at Lake Park. Tickets can be purchased at www. the Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival. He shot to success as a performer when he was just 16, and he has played with some of the world’s best bluesmen.

New website helps parents rate daycares HERE AND NOW


Jennifer Moreau

here’s a new website called The Shorty List that helps parents find the best daycares and schools for their kids. The site collects parent comments and reviews of daycares and schools from all over Metro Vancouver. Karen Young Chester, creator of The Shorty List, is a stay-athome mom with two preschoolaged children. “This is something definitely relevant for Burnaby parents,”

she said. The site is up already but is only accepting comments and reviews. The site’s final launch will be in the fall. Young Chester said she already had some information submitted on places in Burnaby. She also plans to post up-to-date government statistics including school test scores, demographics, satisfaction survey results and daycare sizes. The check out The Shorty List, go to

The Hourglass Syndrome

Tell us something we don’t know. An Angus Reid Public Opinion survey of more than 1,000 Canadian students found

that the majority of high school and post-secondary students experience frustration and anxiety because their computers are too slow. Intel, which released the survey, is calling it the hourglass syndrome in reference to the spinning hourglass that appears while sluggish computers are processing information. The NOW’s parenting columnist Kathy Lynn said pressures from school combined with not having the right technology can be quite stressful. And what would the survey respondents prefer to be doing when the hourglass isn’t spinning? Post-secondary students would rather be relaxing, while high school students like downloading or listening to music. The

survey also noted post-secondary students used their computer mostly for homework, while high school students used it for social networking.

The Confederation Walkers have circled the globe for the fifth time. The seniors’ walking group is based out of Confederation Centre, and the members started going on weekly hikes in 1987. They only started recording their mileage in 1992 but have cleared the 200,000 kilometre mark. (The earth’s circumference is about 40,000 km.) The group’s numbers have fluctuated over the years, from anywhere between 10 to 80 people. Now, there are 49 members, and they’ve covered 5,918 km this year and counting. They usually walk on trails throughout the region but also venture off the Mainland and into the Fraser Valley.

Sexual assault survivors need to tell their story others and our world. At a subconscious level, those core concepts shape how we interpret the events of our lives and relate to others. In previous columns, I’ve discussed the determinants of self-worth in our early lives. Our self-conception and approach to the world can be determined by our early relationships with our parents, siblings and peers, and how we came to interpret and remember them. But in spite of good parenting and a healthily evolving self-concept, the self can be shattered by violence and abuse – physical, sexual or emotional. Each is an act of aggression, control and dominance. Each is a violation of the person and trust. When we use others to gratify our own needs without their consent or


Dr. Davidicus Wong


ur self-conception and sense of self-worth may be hidden from others, but at a subconscious level it impacts how we live each day and can limit our capacity to experience love and happiness. I wish we lived in an ideal world in which every child felt loved, valued and accepted; in which each of us would be seen as complete human beings, regardless of gender, race or outward appearances; where we would all be free to express ourselves and remain safe from harm and abuse by others. We each create core concepts of our selves, of

regard for their needs, thoughts and feelings, we treat them as objects, as mere bodies and not persons. What is stolen from survivors of rape and abuse is their sense of control and trust – in their world and in their relationships. The harm and loss is so great that in most cases, survivors can never fully trust or feel safe again. Survivors of sexual assault not only have difficulty trusting others and the world but distortions and confusion in their thoughts and feelings about sex, their own bodies, love and relationships with the opposite sex. The survivor with a shattered self-esteem can settle for dysfunctional relationships of abuse because she doesn’t recognize that she deserves better. This can spiral into a lifetime of abuse – emotional, sexual or physical.

Many sexual assaults are unreported. Even when they are, the reaction of others can exacerbate the harm. Most people are not comfortable with this reality. They would prefer to ignore or downplay its impact on the survivor. Inappropriate responses of friends and family range from silence to placing inappropriate blame and responsibility on the victim, resulting in wrongly placed self-blame. Survivors of sexual

assault as with other survivors of trauma need to be able to tell their story. Otherwise, their emotions and physical responses can be frozen in the past. Their lives have been irreversibly changed and with them, their sense of self. The shattering of one’s former sense of self and the need to piece together their lives and creating a new narrative of the trauma and their lives is described by Susan Brison, a survivor of a sex-

ual assault and attempted murder, in her book, Aftermath: Violence and the Remaking of a Self. My next column will address the path to healing – how self-worth can be restored after trauma – and how we all share in the responsibility to treat one another and ourselves with respect and compassion.

Peach salsa is perfect ON COOKING Chef Dez


hat is your favorite seasonal fruit purchase? For many, it is peaches. Believed to have originated in China more than 4,000 years ago, peaches now make up a large portion of the fresh fruit crop sales in British Columbia. Similar to many tree fruits, peaches will ripen after they have been picked, however, they will not get any sweeter. The sweetness level will be determined by whether the peaches were allowed to grow to maturity on the tree. Although maturity and ripeness may sound the same, a mature fruit is described as one that has grown to a degree that allows it to ripen. The ripeness of fruit focuses more on the texture appeal.

Maximum sweetness levels will develop on the tree, while the juiciness and softness will continue to evolve after they have been harvested. Peaches obviously offer their best quality to our awaiting appetites when they are consumed fresh, however they can easily be canned or frozen to help extend the season into the winter months. Basically there are two distinct qualities of the many varieties of peaches that are currently cultivated: clingstone and freestone. One may assume that the definitions of these two categories are obviously defining the level of ease in the removal of the stone. Although this is true, it goes beyond this first assumption. Clingstone peaches also offer a firmer flesh that is preferable for canning, as they tend to hold their shape better. The flesh in freestone peaches is more delicate and should be reserved for eating fresh. These two classifications also fall true for plums. If you purchase peaches

that are firm, leaving them at room temperature for a few days will allow them to soften. Otherwise, they should be stored in the crisper of the refrigerator to ensure the maximum lifespan of their edibility. The use of peaches in desserts is an obvious expectation; however, there are other methods to capture their mouth-watering enticement. The first idea that comes to mind is a peach salsa. Mix small chopped pieces with some complimenting flavours and colours such as red pepper, purple onion, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice and, of course, some crushed garlic. Season it with salt, pepper, and a bit of sugar. You will have an incredible summer condiment to compliment grilled specialties from your barbeque, such as chicken breast or salmon. Luckily, summertime allows us the opportunity to enjoy the complete natural freshness of this fragrant fuzzy fruit. Try saying that three times fast.

A fond look back at massive mural project by Emily Zimmerman The Heights Contributor

As a young artist, I am compelled to take almost any job I can. The way I see it, the more experience I build now in different genres of art, the less likely I am of becoming another starving artist. Because of this, I have dipped my brush in many things, such as teaching art, painting commissions, studying graphic design, illustrating books and designing T-shirts. But all of this work doesn’t compare to the experience I have had as a firsttime mural artist.

follow a particular theme, I was able to come up with my own vision. A committee of Heights merchants, residents and City of Burnaby staff chose the final concept.

I wanted to create a mural that would make those passing by smile – for them to see a story on the wall, as if it were an illustration in a book. And the dog in the airplane, well, he is Yukon, a rescue dog that I know and love and couldn’t leave out.

In an effort to create an interesting cultural landscape and keep graffiti out of the Heights, the Heights Merchants Association hires a local art student every two years to paint a mural. I have the honour of being one of this year’s mural artists. Although the experience has been challenging at times, I have also learned more than I ever could from my previous jobs.

The actual painting of the mural was quite an adventure. It made me a more rounded artist, as well as a stronger person. The wall is the largest canvas I have ever painted. And the tippy act of driving a scissor lift, especially in the July heat wave, was something I’ll never forget. But now that I’m finished, and my sunburn has faded, I think back to painting the mural, with the lovely people walking by full of compliments, and the feeling of success I had each day, and I can’t wait for the next one.

The task of painting a mural begins by creating a concept. Since the Heights mural program doesn’t

their financial goals.

The Heights Reporter

“Most people want to buy a home or retire or save for the kids’ education, or they want to protect their family from catastrophe,” he says. “As you can imagine, nobody has enough money to pay for everything at once, so we prioritize. You put together a plan for clients. Once you agree on a plan, you come up with some ideas on how to make that plan.”

Michael Prodanovic brings downtown high finance to the Heights. The Burnaby-based financial planner and investment adviser operates his Manulife Securities office on Hastings Street, so he can bring a more personal approach to the clients he works with. “(I’m) offering downtown services to the local community,” he says. “Because of the way I approach this business, the Heights fits nicely. It’s a tight-knit community, and the business people are very supportive. “The area is evolving … a lot of merchants, they strive to meet their clients’ needs on a one-on-one basis, and that’s what I strive to do.

Having a financial planner can help customize an approach to reaching those goals. Prodanovic says his clients’ needs vary, depending on their circumstances and age. For example, older clients need to look to more conservative investments. One of the most common money mistakes Prodanovic says people make is failing to plan. “When they do plan, they don’t plan solidly enough,” he says. “They might plan on saving for retirement, but

MOTORING Is her vintage ice-cream truck idea a cool one? maybe – maybe – I’ll let this business idea go back into the file. – Kara TOM: We don’t think you’re crazy, Kara. We think it’s a great business idea. And, more importantly, a really fun adventure. RAY: Yeah. Maybe you can buy a truck from some other nutjob who tried this same idea and recently gave up? If you’re lucky, it even might still have the ice cream in it! TOM: The cool commercial vehicle right now is the Ford Transit Connect, which is a city-size delivery van. You even can get one that’s all electric. But if the truck is also your “store,” rather than just your delivery vehicle, I like the idea of reviving a Divco. RAY: The old-fashioned Divco truck, with the sales

CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: I am interested in purchasing a vintage/classic ice-cream truck such as the Divco for a new, gourmetice-cream truck venture. I have found rusted, inoperable trucks for $2,000 and restored trucks for as much as $25,000. My first question is: Is this a reasonable truck to actually put back into service, and at what price? My second question is if you have a better recommendation for a “cool” commercial vehicle. Or just tell me I’m crazy, like my mother, brother and husband do, and

window on the side, is the one vehicle that really screams “ice cream.” TOM: I would make two suggestions for your Divco search. One is to look at ones that haven’t been restored yet. You don’t want the $2,000 rusted heaps that have trees sprouting out of them. But if you pay $25,000 for a restored truck, you have no idea how well it’s been restored. You also may be paying for restored details that you have no need for. Do you really care if the gas pedal has been restored to its original factory condition? RAY: So look for something that’s structurally sound but cosmetically challenged. Find one that runs, so you can evaluate it. But not one that’s had every dent knocked out. TOM: And the second suggestion is to find a mechanic who’s willing

much or as little aesthetic work as you like. You’ll obviously paint the outside to advertise your business. RAY: And then you have to make a decision about the engine. If it’s in decent shape, even if it’s old and burning a little oil, you may just decide to leave it as is. After all, I’m guessing most of your driving will be local. TOM: And who knows? Maybe the worn-out engine will become your calling card. Instead of listening for the sounds of Turkey in the Straw, the kids will keep their noses peeled for the smell of

to go with you to look at your top candidates. A mechanic will be able to tell you whether a truck has a solid undercarriage and is worth putting more money into. RAY: And then, when you restore it, the most important thing is to make sure it’s safe. Obviously, a good suspension system and working brakes top the list. You won’t sell much ice cream in a neighbourhood where you regularly run over the kids. TOM: And then you want to make sure you have refrigeration that you can count on. You can do as

’Bellies on the ropes in junior final Tom Berridge sports editor

The Coquitlam Adanacs are one win away from a second straight B.C. Junior Lacrosse League championship. The three-time defending regular season champs broke the home-team advantage in Game 4 of the best-ofseven junior A final series, defeating the New Westminster Salmonbellies 9-5 at Queen’s Park Arena Friday. The Adanacs now hold a 3-1 advantage in the series over New Westminster. Game 5 is at the Coquitlam Sports Centre tonight (Wednesday), beginning at 8 p.m. The game followed the pattern of the first three games of the series, with the score tied heading into the third period. In a similar scenario to the earlier games in the playoff final, one team took over in the final frame. This time it was Coquitlam who made the best of its chances in the third. Robert Church and Ontario import Mark Matthews, on a fine individual effort, sparked a five-goal third period for the winners.

Golf Burnaby

Church opened the final 20 minutes with back-to-back markers less than a minute apart. Matthews, who assisted on both of Church’s goals and finished with a game-high six points, then tallied his fifth goal of the playoffs half a minute later. Matthew’s counter may well have broken the spirit of the Salmonbellie defence when he took a loose ball from his own zone the full length of the floor to score unassisted on starter Frank Scigliano to give Coquitlam a three-goal lead after just two minutes of the final period. “It’s a couple of mistakes that are hurting us each game,” said Salmonbellies captain Jarrett Toll. “It’s the simple mistake we’re making. Anyone could have scored. … It’s something we have to corrrect, if we want to have any chance of winning this series, or winning the Minto. Our defence has to be better.” New Westminster had a promising start in the opening period, holding a 3-1 lead on unanswered single goals by Tyler Digby, Cody Bremner and Daniel McQuade. But Adanac goalkeeper Dan Lewis looked sharper in the second

period and Coquitlam took advantage on the power play, taking the lead on two extra-man markers from Ben McIntosh. McQuade scored his second goal of the game to keep the score even at 4-4. But in the third period, only one team rose to the occasion. Jeff Cornwall, playing in just his first game in the final series, silenced any chance of a New Westminster comeback, scoring shorthanded on a breakaway pass from Lewis early in the period. Cornwall then scored his second goal of the game into a vacated net. “Our team works really hard on fitness. Everyone is in the best shape of our lives here, and we say we’re just going to get better,” said Cornwall. The key to stopping the Salmonbellies in five games is to keep taking away what the New Westminster shooters want,” added Cornwall. Toll believes the outcome will be different if the Salmonbellies can keep their focus for 60 minutes. “We have to play better,” Toll said. “We have to come and focus like we did in the first period.”

Basketball B.C. teams all medalled at the national under-15 and u-17 championships last weekend. The girls’ u-17 team came away with the gold medal, upsetting host Ontario 80-75 in overtime in Toronto Aug. 7. Burnaby’s Alisha Roberts, a 5-7 guard from York House School, played more than 40 minutes in the final, finishing with six points, seven rebounds, three assists, four steals and one blocked shot. The championship win avenged an earlier 56-54 loss to Ontario in the weeklong tournament. St. Thomas More forward Lexi Der lifted B.C. into the championship final, scoring 18 points, while leading the team in rebounding with 12 boards in a 74-68 win over Quebec in the semifinal on Friday. Last month, Der helped Canada’s u-17 national women’s team to an 11th-place finish at the International Basketball Federation world championships in France. The 6-0 Burnaby forward finished fourth in overall team scoring with 47 points at the worlds. B.C.’s u-15 girls came away with a bronze medal, following a 62-43 victory over Alberta. In Winnipeg, the u-

15 and u-17 boys both brought back third-place medals from their respective age-group nationals in Winnipeg. The u-17 boys, including Burnaby South Secondary’s Ater Degal and Nick Irvine, held on for an 80-79 victory over Saskatchewan in the consolation final Saturday. Degal, a 6-1 guard for the Rebels, scored five points and grabbed three rebounds, while earning three assists and two steals in the final game. B.C. lost eventual champion Quebec 89-86 in the semifinal. Degal scored 14 points in the loss. B.C. defeated Nova Scotia 98-49 in the championship round. Irvine, a 6-7 senior post at South, scored nine points and led B.C. in rebounds with 10 in the game. Quebec defeated Ontario 86-75 in the goldmedal final. In u-15 play, Giovanni Trasolini, a 6-4 guard from Burnaby, also won a bronze medal with Team B.C., following an 86-69 win over host Manitoba. B.C. lost to Quebec 9464 in the semifinals. Ontario topped Quebec 82-77 in the u-15 goldmedal game. Earlier in the tournament, Trasolini scored six points on three-for-five shooting in an 80-61 loss to the eventual runner-up from Quebec.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had a goal and an assist for Canada’s under-18 hockey team in a 3-2 exhibition win in overtime over the Czech Republic on Saturday. The Red Deer Rebels rookie of the year in the Western Hockey League last season scored late in the second period to tie the game at 1-1. He then set up the game-tying 2-2 goal off the stick of Xavier Ouellet on a power play with less than five minutes remaining in regulation time. The game was in preparation for the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka hockey tournament, which runs all this week. In the opening game of the tournament played Monday in Piestany, Slovakia, Nugent-Hopkins gave Canada an early onegoal lead after just two

minutes of play en route to a 6-3 victory over Sweden. Canada is playing in a pool with co-host Slovakia, Sweden and Switzerland. The other group includes Finland, Russia, the United States and co-host Czech Republic. The top two teams from both pools will advance to the semifinals on Friday. The gold-medal game is scheduled for Saturday. Nugent-Hopkins scored 24 goals and added 41 assists for the major junior league Rebels last season. The Burnaby centre is the lone player from B.C. selected to Canada’s u-18 national team. Canada has won the gold medal at the annual Hlinka championship tournament five of the last six years, including the last two seasons. Canada also won the competition from 2004 to ’06 when it was billed as the u-18 Junior World Cup.

Of a different colour: Riley Loewen, in yellow, still looks a little out of place in the colours of the junior A Coquitlam Adanacs, but his scoring prowess is still right on the money. The former Burnaby junior Laker lefthander currently has eight goals and 15 playoff points with the A’s, including four goals in the finals.

LACHMANN, Manfred It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Manfred Horst Lachmann on Monday, August 2, 2010 at Royal Columbian Hospital at the age of 71 after a short battle with cancer. Manfred was born on June 16, 1939 in Puschkau, Germany and came to Canada in 1965. Manfred started working for the City of New Westminster in June, 1966 and retired in July, 2000 after 34 years as a gardener with the City’s Parks Department.
