Courage in the kitchen Imagine how hard it is to open a new restaurant, in a new city, in a new country, with no prior experience. Now imagine doing it blind or having just recovered from throat cancer. For Alicia and Rolf Krawinkel, opening up Delicias de Alicia, a new Cuban restaurant in the Metrotown area, has been the culmination of a threeyear journey that has seen the couple survive on faith, friendship, love and hard work. For more on Alicia and Rolf, see reporter Alfie Lau’s feature on page 11.

Multisport centre shooting for 2012 opening Funding issues in 2008 stalled project – but new focus is on more of a ‘philanthropic component’ Janaya Fuller-Evans

staff reporter

Financing for Burnaby’s premier sports centre is coming together, according to the president and CEO of the project. Loyal Makaroff also confirmed

Vancouver’s Steve Nash would be on the athletes’ board of advisors for the project, as was announced recently. “He is on the board, which is fantastic,” Makaroff said. “There are others that we’ll be announcing in the future.” Nash’s physiotherapist Rick Celebrini is a partner on the project, according to The Vancouver Sun. But Makaroff would not say what other high-profile athletes might be involved at this time, or who was on the Multisport Centre of Excellence’s leadership board. Construction on the project began in

May 2008 but had to cease in the fall because of funding issues. The global credit crisis affected the project’s financing, but Makaroff said the foundation behind the project has since come up with a new financial plan. “We had to revisit the financial plan we had when everything collapsed in 2008,” he said. “There’s far more of an emphasis on the philanthropic component.” The budget has also been aided by a cost reduction for materials when the local market fell, he added. The financing issues do not mean there

The centre’s field was completed in time for the World Police and Fire Games last year. The 142,000 sq. ft. centre’s design includes training and rehabilitation facilities, as well as an athlete’s village with 60 rooms, and sleeping space for 120 athletes.

Saddling up for a ride back in time Woman who grew up on PNE grounds revisits carousel at Burnaby Village Museum Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

It had been many years since Dorothy Burnett had ridden the historic 1912 C.W. Parker Carousel. Burnett and the carousel share a common past – both used to live on the Pacific National Exhibition lands at Happyland, the amusement park that was demolished in 1957. Happyland opened in 1926, and Burnett moved there with her parents and three brothers when she was eight years old, on Oct. 31, 1930. Her father, James Robertson, had been hired as superintendent of the amusement park. “It was a different life than other people,” Burnett says, adding she didn’t realize how different at the time, and took it for granted. Burnett grew up working at the park with her brothers. When she was 14, she worked at the dance hall and was also a waitress on occasion. Once, her father offered her the chance to sell tickets for a ride and worked a lesson into it for her. When she went back to the office with her cash box after her shift, her father told her there was $2 missing and it would have to be deducted from her wages. That evening, after Burnett had complained to her mother and been teased by her brothers, her father informed her that he had taken the $2 out before her shift started. The lesson – always count your change at the beginning of your shift. But it wasn’t all work. When the park opened for the spring and summer season of 1931, Burnett and her brothers discovered that customers riding the Giant Dipper would often lose their change. Burnett and her brothers went to the extent of pulling out shovels to dig for the change and used bubblegum on a stick to retrieve coins that fell between the wooden

The Robertsons left Happyland nine years later. Burnett, who now lives in Kelowna, was 17. She visited the carousel at its new home at the Burnaby Village Museum last Friday, during a visit from Kelowna with her daughter, Beverly Chicoine, for the PNE’s 100th anniversary. “This place brings back memories,” she says of the Deer Lake area, mentioning her in-laws had lived in the neighbourhood.

She could remember when ice was cut out of Deer Lake in the winter, and sold. Burnett has recently written a book, Shoot the Chute, about her time at Happyland. Chicoine helped Burnett write the book by asking for her stories and pressing her to preserve them for the family, Burnett says. “If it hadn’t been for my daughter, there wouldn’t be a book,” she says. Burnett and Chicoine were in town last week to attend the PNE and saw

Wayne Newton perform Thursday night, Chicoine says. Dianne McLeod, with the museum, as well as members of the Friends of the Carousel, was extremely glad to meet Burnett when she visited. Burnett, Chicoine and McLeod climbed aboard the ride, which is 98 years old this year, for one go-around. Fittingly, Burnett’s horse was named James – the same name as her father.

and retail businesses, offices, storage, a gym and a cafeteria, he said. The foundation’s goal is to start up on-site construction by the end of 2010, he said, with the first two floors complete by the end of 2011, and the entire project finished by April 2012. The foundation has raised $26 million thus far and has invested $23 million in the project, which has a total estimated cost of $54 million. The foundation is hoping to bring the private donation amount to $35 to $40 million before launching a public fundraising campaign, slated to start in the next four to six weeks, Makaroff added. At that time, the leadership board members, as well as some of the athletes’ advisory board members, will be announced, he said. “It’s very positive,” he said. “A lot is coming together.” – with files from The Vancouver Sun

$25 million to organizations throughout the province, according to a press release. On April 1, the province combined the bingo affiliation and direct access gaming grant programs into the community gaming grant program. However, the changes to the program also cut grants to arts, environmental and adult sports programs. Heads of arts organizations, particularly the B.C. Alliance for Arts, have spoken out critically about the cuts. B.C. Arts Council chair Jane Danzo stepped down from her post,

mentioning funding cuts in her resignation letter to tourism, arts and culture minister Kevin Krueger last month. Burnaby environmental organizations have complained about the cuts as well. Paul Cipywnyk, president of the Stream of Dreams Murals Society, brought the issue to city council in June, after Comox Valley’s board of directors voted to approach the province about the cuts. The changes cut Stream of Dreams’ budget by 25 per cent, Cipywnyk told the NOW in June.

“It really helped in getting the program out to rural areas,” he said. “That’s where the B.C. gaming money was really important.” The province has budgeted $120 million for gaming grants for 2010 to 2011. Approximately $54 million of that has already been allocated. The grants are intended to fund approximately 6,000 organizations supporting people in need, public safety, youth arts and sports, education, and parent and district advisory councils, the press release said.

Under investigation: Construction has temporarily halted at a site on Dunlop Avenue, near Charles Street, where a worker died in an accident on Friday afternoon. Freeman said the crane was dismantled on Saturday and taken offsite to be looked at by investigators. In addition, an independent structural engineer was scheduled to be at the site Monday to assess the extent of the damage to the house. “We can’t send our investigators into the building until we can be assured that the building is safe,” said Freeman. Freeman said investigators will be talking to surviving workers and

witnesses, as well as examining the equipment on the site, as they look into what caused the fatal accident. “This could take months or even years,” said Freeman. “We do know that this is a serious incident in which one person died and two people were hurt.” The construction site will remain closed down until WorkSafe B.C. deems it safe and investigators have collected all the evidence they need. – with files from Postmedia Network

A 55-year-old Port Moody construction worker died in a Friday afternoon crane accident in North Burnaby. The accident occurred around 4:15 p.m. at a construction site on Dunlop Avenue, near Charles Street, not far from Aubrey Elementary. A crane operator was using a truck to deliver lumber, including a larger lumber beam, to the house under construction when the accident occurred. According to WorkSafe B.C. spokesperson Donna Freeman, as the beam was being positioned into or onto the house, the beam dropped. The construction worker was found breathing but unresponsive near the end of the crane and the operator was thrown to the ground. The Port Moody man was taken to Vancouver General Hospital to be treated for his injuries, but he died later on Friday evening. The crane operator was shaken but sustained only minor injuries. Freeman added that another worker was hurt and suffered non-life-threatening injuries. WorkSafe B.C. will now investigate the cause of the accident.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Cancer patient hit with bills Dear Editor:

Re: Cancer: The silent side effect on families, Burnaby NOW, Aug. 21 I am writing in regards to a story I read on the hardships of cancer and families. I am a 47-year-old woman who works at a local hospital and was just diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer. Because of a misdiagnosis, I was admitted to Royal Columbian Hospital for 26 days, with a fluid-only diet. When my surgery finally happened, I was told it would take about one-and-a-half hours. They soon realized I had a large tumour in my colon, so the surgery was approximately six hours. My family and I were given the news of cancer the next morning.

Because I had been quite ill prior to surgery, I used up most of my sick time at work while I was still in the hospital. I then had to apply for Employment Insurance sick benefits and then was told that when a person is sick, they are only able to collect 15 weeks of sick benefits. If you are laid off of work, you are able to collect 52 weeks of benefits. My EI sick benefits ended on July 30. I am able to get onto long-term disability as of Sept. 15, but I will not see any money until Oct 15.

DIY bedbug removal Dear Editor:


Re: Bedbug battle, Burnaby NOW, Aug.

I have fought bedbugs in both my house and in the apartment of a relative this year and disagree with some of the advice in your article. Bedbugs can absolutely be a do-it-yourself project using a search-and-destroy strategy. If you have just a few bugs, they will mostly be on your bed. Take the bed apart, search all its surfaces and nooks and crannies. When you clear it, any bugs living elsewhere in the room or apartment will move in. If you just search your bed every couple of days and kill everything you find, eventually you will get them all. If you have an infestation, there is some major cleaning to do, sorting and bagging of stuff and often discarding things like mattresses or box springs. But the basic principle remains the same: Attract them to where you sleep, and then search them out and kill them.

If you learn how to recognize eggs and baby bugs as well as adult bugs, the task will go faster. If you have no idea where to start looking, it can be a good idea to get a pest control officer in to help you get started. You might want to get a set of bedbug traps on the legs of your bed and zipped wraps for your mattress. It may take as long as a couple of months to get every last bug, but you can do it. Keep track of your bites (if you show bites), and when you’ve gone two weeks bite-free, you are likely free and clear. Karin Litzcke, Burnaby

Klein article ‘nonsense’ Dear Editor:

Re: Many layers to Tamil story, In my opinion, Seth Klein, Burnaby NOW, Aug. 28 The fact that (Seth Klein) is the product of Vietnam war draft dodgers is hardly conducive to allaying any apprehensions I presently harbour vis-a-vis illegal immigration, queue jumping, or whatever nomenclature he wishes to use. Mr. Klein makes some valid points about temporary foreign workers but loses momentum by not noting that these men signed legal contracts with their employers. The fact that Pakistan and Bangladesh are once again suffering swollen, flooding rivers may be part of the reason that the rest of the world is feeling charity fatigue. If there is one thing these countries have in abundance, it is cheap labour, which one might think would have been used to build methods of flood-control, but it seems the money always disappears into Swiss accounts and military buildups and nuclear arms, ad nauseam, and anyway, it’s so much easier to send out pictures of woe-begotten victims. The paper failed to mention that the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives is a left-wing organ that sends out, at very regular intervals, this sort of nonsense.

queue should also be discarded. As Stephen Hume pointed out in a recent Vancouver Sun column, there are two routes to becoming a refugee in Canada: You can get there from a refugee camp, or you can show up and say you would suffer persecution if returned home. The Sri Lankan government has been dismantling refugee camps since the war ended; it’s an open

question whether persecution has ceased and one that will likely determine the refugees’ fate. Finally, the notion of freeloading is also interesting. A lot of fury has surrounded the idea that these are only “economic migrants,” that they just want a better life, with things like clean water, good jobs and nice homes. Well, how dare they! Those things are clearly for those of us who were already here and inherited

them without doing a lick of work settling this country. But of course, perhaps I’m biased. Aside from the recent arrivals from America, none of my family members ever applied for permission to come to Canada. I don’t think they ever asked the Sto:lo, Algonquin, Six Nations or Cree people for immigration forms. Matthew Claxton is a columnist for the Langley Advance.

NOTES FROM CITY HALL Fire calls up in 2010 Burnaby’s fire department responded to nearly 100 more calls in the second quarter of 2010 than in the same period last year. During those three months, firefighters responded to 3,219 calls, 1,825 of which were medical and cardiac emergencies. Firefighters responded to 3,133 calls in the second quarter of 2009, and 1,730 of those were medical and cardiac emergencies. So far, there have been 6,258 calls in 2010, almost 70 more than the same period of 2009. More than half of those calls have been medical and cardiac emergencies. In 2010, there were 3,579 responses to medical calls. In the same time period in 2009, there were 3,429. There have been fewer fire inspections done during this quarter, 1,559, compared to the same period last year at 1,740. However, there have been nearly 300 more conducted in 2010 overall. There were 122 fire investigations in the second quarter of 2010, compared with 53 in the same period in

2009. So far firefighters have suffered fewer injuries in 2010, 31 compared with 36 in 2009. Only one had to take time off because of it.

Toy Run gets go-ahead

Start your engines – the 32nd annual Vancouver Motorcycle Christmas Toy Run will be roaring through North Burnaby on Oct. 3. Burnaby’s city council approved this year’s plans for the annual event, which will bring 7,000 to 10,000 bikes through Burnaby Heights carrying toys for the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau. The majority of the route, which starts at Coquitlam Centre and ends at Vancouver’s Pacific Coliseum, travels through Burnaby on the Barnet Highway and Hastings Street. There will be parking restrictions and road closures along Hastings Street, between Inlet Drive and Boundary Road, but signs and notices will be posted by Sept. 24, according to a city staff report. Funding for the signs, barricades, policing and equipment is allocat-

ed from Burnaby’s gaming reserve funds.

Calming the traffic

It’ll be a bumpy ride in Burnaby as eight street hump projects passed first, second and third readings at Monday night’s council meeting. Some of the street humps are intended for streets that previously had the bumps and were repaved during summer construction projects.The eight streets are: ◆ Oxford Street, between Ingleton and MacDonald avenues. ◆ Dundas Street, between Gilmore and Carleton avenues. ◆ Dundas Street, between Rosser and Willingdon avenues. ◆ Georgia Street, between Springer and Howard avenues. ◆ Spruce Street, between MacDonald and Carleton avenues. ◆ Denbigh Avenue, between Irving and Oakland streets. ◆ Elsom Avenue, between Bond and Burke streets. ◆ Cedarwood Street, from Chapple Crescent to Gilpin Street. – Janaya Fuller-Evans

Police officer honoured Burnaby RCMP Const. Chad Premack was one of five people recently honoured by the Canadian Bankers Association for their achievements in solving frauds and bank robberies. The awards ceremony was held on Aug. 25 in Edmonton. Premack was lauded for his part in solving a string of bank robberies that began in Burnaby in May 2008. During that first robbery, an individual wearing a disguise and threatening bank employees with a gun entered a bank branch in Burnaby and demanded $10,000 from the bank teller.

During the next 16 months, the same individual robbed five additional bank branches in the Burnaby area. “Const. Premack demonstrated commitment and vigilance to the investigation and ensured the file remained a priority,” states the citation from last week’s ceremony. “In addition to his on-duty efforts, Const. Premack spent many voluntary hours working on the case.” Those efforts led to the arrest of the suspect in November 2009, along with the arrest of a second individual. Police seized numerous handguns, rifles, ammunition, cash and disguises used in the robberies.

Oil cleanup continuing Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

While little has changed in the case of oil leaching off site from Chevron’s North Burnaby refinery on to the beach in Burrard Inlet, workers recently got a series of extraction wells up and running. The wells are meant to collect the contaminated groundwater before it migrates offsite. Chevron first discovered the leaching oil on April 21 in a routine inspection. It was pooling in a ditch, next to the railroad tracks, downhill from the property, and showing up on the beach below. The material – a mix of gas, diesel and crude oil – was getting carried off Chevron’s property through the groundwater. When asked if they had figured out

where exactly the leak was coming from, Chevron spokesperson Ray Lord said they were focusing on the sewer system, which collects the site’s water for treatment. Lord also said it’s impossible to say how long it would take to clean up the leaching material, since it’s an underground remediation problem. “It’s a contaminated site situation,” he said. The recent dry weather has meant less of the oil is getting washed out with the groundwater, he added, and crews continue to spot clean the shoreline. Environment Ministry staff is working with Chevron, supervising the cleanup.

Cooking up a new life


magine how hard it is to open a new restaurant, in a new city, in a new country, with no prior experience. Now imagine doing it blind or having just recovered from throat cancer. For Alicia and Rolf Krawinkel, opening up Delicias de Alicia, a new Cuban restaurant in the Metrotown area, has been the culmination of a three-year journey that has seen the couple survive on faith, friendship, love and hard work. Alicia, blind since birth, does all the cooking in the cozy Imperial Street eatery while Rolf, almost two years recovered from throat cancer surgery that still leaves him with a gravelly voice, is the server, host and accountant for the restaurant that opened its doors on March 2. Making the story even more unbelievable is that before this year, neither Alicia or Rolf had any professional restaurant experience: Alicia, trained as a physiotherapist in her Holguin, Cuba, home, discovered that her credentials weren’t recognized in Canada. Rolf worked as a geophysicist until his throat cancer scare and when he was ready to return to work, the global economic meltdown melted away his job. “When Rolf got sick, I started cooking out of my house for some Latin community fundraisers,” said Alicia. “Word got around and I started to make a little money to help support my family.” The last thing Alicia wanted to be was a burden to her new country and her family, as she and Rolf are raising a blended family of four sons – three of whom live with them in their Delta home. “It’s important for me to show my sons that I can contribute to the community and that, no matter what, I can still work hard and do my best,” said Alicia. Talk to Alicia for any amount of time and you wouldn’t even know she’s blind, as she uses all of her other senses to the best of her ability. When she cooks, she listens to make sure that things are cooked properly. And when she thinks they’re done, she gives it the smell test. “Alicia doesn’t make any mistakes in the kitchen,” said Rolf. “She’s designed the kitchen so that she can do everything herself. When I move something, that’s when I hear about it.” Alicia even does her own dishes, using her touch to knowingly

separate all the clean dishes from the used ones coming back from the dining room. For Rolf, running a restaurant wasn’t something he had in mind three years ago when he was diagnosed with throat cancer. “I couldn’t work and I didn’t even know if I would live,” said Rolf. “I think it’s because of our tremendous faith in God that both of us have come through this.” Even when Rolf took some geophysicist contracts in Mexico and the United States, Alicia had a better plan. “I told Rolf that in the time that we had been together, we hadn’t worked together,” she said. “I told him it was time that we did something together, for love, not money.” And that’s how Delicias de Alicia was born.

The couple scoured the Internet for a suitable location, almost signing a lease in Vancouver until they saw how old the building was. They found their 4854 Imperial St. location shortly thereafter and have slowly built the business up. “I keep a ledger of all our customers,” said Rolf, pointing out the 300-strong list of diners who’ve come to enjoy the rich flavoured, but not spicy hot, Cuban cuisine that Alicia creates herself. Rolf is almost apologetic when he notes that a recent take-out order for four was for one of the city’s most powerful men. “I took the order and a nice man and his wife came to pick it up,” he said. “One of my other customers told me that’s the mayor of Burnaby (Derek Corrigan). He lives in the area.” For every 10 meals a customer

has at Delicias, they get a free meal. “We have one neighbour who’s already been here 26 times, plus her two free dinners,” said Rolf. “I guess she doesn’t like to cook herself.” Ivania and Eduardo Olivares got to the know the couple through Latino Soy, an FM multicultural radio station. When the radio station needed food cooked up for a fundraiser, they were referred to Alicia. “She cooked 80 to 90 portions and everybody who had it absolutely loved it,” said Ivania. “She cooks very elaborate food, with a lot of flavour, and you would never know she’s blind.” Eduardo, who Alicia refers to as her Canadian father for how much help he has offered her and Rolf, agrees with Ivania, saying that Rolf and Alicia have faced so many obstacles, yet continue to

soldier on because of their faith. “My faith has been so important to me,” said Alicia. “Every time we faced something hard, I asked God for help and every time, He has answered.” For Rolf, the first six months have been a learning experience, with both peaks and valleys. “It was pretty busy the first couple of months and then it slowed down in the summer,” he said. “I think it will pick up again in the fall. We’ve made enough to pay our expenses so far. ... We hope to make enough so that we can go back to Cuba for a vacation.” Delicias de Alicia is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information, call 604-569-1575.

Labour Day fair at village

Local families looking for some oldfashioned fun on Labour Day need look no further than their own backyards. The Burnaby Village Museum is hosting its annual fall fair, with baking competitions, heritage games and theatrical entertainment. There will also be rides in a Model T Ford, and members of the Pacific Spirit Quilters Guild will be showcasing examples of their handiwork and offering sewing tips. Footlight Theatre will be presenting a vaudeville show, while volunteers from the SFU pocket farmers’ market will be selling fresh produce. The heritage games include a water-


melon eating contest and a corn-shucking relay, and there will be a scavenger hunt for the kids. There are also balloons, face painting and dogs running an agility course. Thanks to CUPE Local 23 and Burnaby parks and rec, rides on the carousel are free for Labour Day. The fall fair is on Monday, Sept. 6 from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Regular admission rates apply: $11.70 for adults; $8.81 for youth 13 to 18 years old, seniors and people with disabilities; $5.86 for children six to 12 years old – kids younger than that get in free.

Highlights include sending a statue of Krishna on a boat ride and on a swing, and at midnight, he appears dressed in nothing but flowers. The festival will be at the Hare Krishna Temple, at 5462 Marine Dr. in Burnaby. There is extra parking at the MichaelJFoxTheatre,at7373 MacPherson Ave., and there will be a shuttle bus to the

temple, with a pickup stop at Royal Oak SkyTrain station. Admission is free. See www.janmastami.iskcon. ca for more information. The Hare Krishna movement, also known as the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, began in New York in the ‘60s and regards Krishna as God and source of Hindu avatars.



Hare Krishna festival set

The Lower Mainland’s largest annual Hare Krishna festival is set to kick off in Burnaby Sept. 1, celebrating the god’s birthday. Organizers are expecting 8,000 to 10,000 Krishna devotees at the Burnaby temple for an evening of classical Indian dance, live theatre, music and a free vegetarian feast. The festival runs from 6:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.

TASTE The Gilmore: comfort food at comfortable prices Alfie Lau


he Gilmore Restaurant in North Burnaby has always been a favourite greasy spoon in the city. While owners Cecilia and Stephen Lee have run the place for the past 19 years, the restaurant has been operating for more than three decades. The décor is solidly stuck in the 1970s, but so are the prices, which is a darn good thing for those on a budget. What you get at the Gilmore is a family serving you good food at great prices with big smiles on their faces. The highlight of the menu is the $8.95 10-ounce top sirloin steak that was actually more than $10 before the HST came into effect. “We lowered the price because our customers expect an affordable meal,” said Cecilia. “We know times are tough for

be easy on their pocketbooks and great for their stomachs. And seniors Ray and Kathleen Marsh know that coming from the Lougheed Town Centre area for a late lunch is well worth the drive. “We come here once a week for the wonton soup,” said Ray. “The flavour is so good, and you don’t get wontons as tasty as you get here. “Plus, we love how friendly the staff are here.” Ray said he has frequented the Gilmore for more than three decades, and he thinks Cecilia and Stephen have been the best owners the Gilmore has ever had. “We feel like part of their family,” said Ray. “We’ve seen their daughters grow up, and we’ve seen how hard the whole family works.” Younger daughter, Ivy, 25, is now a social worker, but she still enjoys shifts in the kitchen with her dad. “Everybody still remembers me as the little girl sitting in a booth doing her homework,” said Ivy. “I think what I learned from my parents is the value of hard work. I see how hard they worked, and that’s how hard I’ve

worked at all my jobs.” The restaurant is open seven days a week, from 9 a.m. for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Open to 9 p.m. each night except for Monday – “We need a break too,” Cecilia jokes – the Gilmore hasn’t been immune to the recession and the effects of the HST. “Business has been down a bit but we’ve always recovered,” said Cecilia. “We offer good quality food at good prices and that hasn’t ever changed. … We have a lot of loyal customers and we have to just keep trying to make sure they keep coming back.” The Gilmore Restaurant is at 4015 East Hastings St., with ample street parking both in the front and the back.

everybody.” I ordered the steak rare and Stephen does a fine job of making sure that the steak is not only tasty, it doesn’t taste like a $4 casino steak. The fries and seasonal vegetables that came with the steak were also quite delectable and you can’t expect much more for your $9. As I sat through a late lunch at the Gilmore, I couldn’t get over how many of the customers would come in and order without even so much as looking at a menu. The construction workers in for lunch know that their $5.75 chicken chow mein, complete with soup or salad, will keep them filled for the rest of their shift. I had to try the chicken chow mein for myself – ordered with some sweet and sour spareribs on the side – and it was a meal fit for an army of construction workers. More chicken than you could ask for, along with more meat on the ribs that you can imagine, the noodles soaked in all the flavour goodness as well.

New Volunteer Drivers Always Welcome


Happy Labour Day 604-299-5754 Your friends at

Driving while using a handheld cell phone isn’t just illegal. It’s dangerous. Twenty-five per cent of vehicle crashes each year can be attributed to drivers being distracted. The number one cause of distraction? Wireless electronic devices, such as cell phones. Driving demands your full attention. When you’re behind the wheel, anything that competes with your attention impairs your driving ability and increases your chance of being in a crash. Remember – a distracted driver is a dangerous driver. Find out more at (

Whether you’re doing the daily commute, seeing the sights while on vacation, or just running to the neighbourhood grocery store to shop, there are things you can do to help make our roads safer. Here are some of ICBC’s smart driving tips: 1. Plan ahead: Beginning September 20th, police in B.C. will be armed with Canada’s toughest laws and penalties to get impaired drivers off B.C.’s roads faster and for longer. If your activities will include alcohol, take all the necessary steps to make sure you get home safe. Be safe – don’t drink and drive. Make plans to have a designated driver, take a taxi, public transit or call a friend or family member for a ride home. Remember – a true designated driver is a person who decides not to drink. Period. 2. Focus: Studies show that drivers who talk on a cellphone lose about 50 per cent of what’s going on around them, visually, and are four times more likely to get into a crash. If your cellphone rings while driving, let voice mail do its job and call back later. If you need to take the call, use

a hands-free device and keep the conversation brief. Find more tips at 3. Be realistic: …about your travel times and check road conditions before you leave. Check ( for possible highway closures before heading out and allow extra time for delays that may occur, especially over the long weekend when more vehicles will be on the road. If you’re going to be later than you expected – deal with it. Take a deep breath and accept the delay. Relax… it’s a long weekend

benefit of the doubt and keep your distance. Even with a lot of sunshine and favourable road conditions, you need to allow at least two seconds of following distance, and at least three seconds on high-speed roads. The latter also applies if you’re behind a motorcycle since it has a much shorter stopping distance. Always be extra careful in intersections. Obey all traffic signs and signals and yield the right of way to other road users, such as pedestrians. 5. Buckle up: If you don’t wear your seatbelt, you

Take the Drive Smart Challenge . . . Log on to: after all. Take the Drive Smart Challenge (http:// html#/intro) and learn first-hand how rushing can affect your ability behind the wheel. 4. Slow down and keep your distance: Slow down, especially if we get some unexpected rain, or if you’re driving on uneven roads. Always stay within the posted speed limits in construction and playground zones. Weaving in and out of traffic is one of the top five high-risk behaviours that cause car crashes. Give other drivers the

are 25 times more likely to be killed in a crash if ejected from the vehicle. In a 50 km/h head-on crash, a 150-pound adult not wearing a seatbelt will collide with other occupants, strike the inside of the vehicle or get thrown from the car with the same force as the weight of a ¾-ton truck. 6. Set an example: …to your children and other drivers by being courteous and safe on the road. Your smart driving decisions can have a significant influence on others. Learn the unwritten rules of the road. Check out some of ICBC’s Drive Smart Unwritten Rules of the Road (http://www., like when is it appropriate to wave “thanks”. Cyclists can also do their part by observing the rules of the road and making safety their top priority. The majority of children’s cycling crashes are caused by the child riding out onto a roadway without looking. Always make sure you and your child wear a bicycle helmet – it’s the law in B.C. MAKE SURE EVERYONE IN THE CAR IS PROPERLY SECURED Seatbelts are the law in B.C. for everyone over 9 years old or 145 cm (4’9”) tall. Children under 12 should be seated in the rear seat of the vehicle, and drivers are responsible for ensuring everyone under 16 is properly secured, whether in an approved infant, child or booster seat, or with a seatbelt. As you prepare for back to school, remember that the law requires child passengers to be properly secured in a child seat that is appropriate for their age and size.

Lakers trade team for Minto dream Tom Berridge

sports editor

Riley Loewen got his Minto Cup ring. The Burnaby lefthander played a signficant role at the Canadian junior A lacrosse championships. Loewen, who came over to Coquitlam from Burnaby along with Nick Bilic and Brodie MacDonald in an earlier trade deadline deal, led the Coquitlam Adanacs in scoring in the final two games of the best-of-three Minto Cup final that culminated in an 8-4 victory over the Orangeville Northmen last weekend. The Minto Cup win was the first ever for the Coquitlam Adanacs. The victory also prevented the Northmen from joining an elite company of five other box lacrosse teams that have won three or more consecutive Canadian junior A titles. The last three teams to accomplish that feat were Peterborough James Gang in the early 1980s, Burnaby Cablevision in 1977 to ‘79 and the Peterborough PCO’s in the early 1970s. The Oshawa Green Gaels, under the great Jim Bishop, won an unprecedented seven Minto Cups in a row during the 1960s. Brampton ABC’s also won three straight to end the 1950s. Loewen scored one goal and added three assists in the cupwinning game at the Coquitlam Sports Centre Saturday. On Friday, Loewen tallied a pair of goals and added one helper to give Coquitlam a 9-5 victory in the opening game of the series.

Loewen finished seventh overall in Minto Cup scoring and fourth among Coquitlam shooters with six goals and six assists. But more than half of Loewen’s points came in the crucial last two games of the series. On Saturday, Loewen drew assists on Coquitlam’s two firstperiod tallies that gave the host club a 2-1 lead at the interval. With the game still close and Coquitlam leading 6-4 midway through the final period, Loewen spun off a defender and potted a back-breaking marker by Orangeville keeper Dillon Ward at the 13:30 mark. He then drew a third assist on Mark Matthews second goal from outside the circle. “I’m speechless. It doesn’t even feel real right now,” said Loewen. “We just kept on battling, even if we were leading. We didn’t want to slack off or anything. We wanted to keep it going.” And in a similar fashion to their five-game series win over New Westminster, the Adanacs did it with a full 60-minute effort. In Game 1 of the series, Coquitlam overcame a 5-4 Orangeville advantage in the first frame to score five unanswered goals through the next two periods. In Game 2, the Adanacs outscored the Ontario champs by a 4-1 margin in the third period. The victory was as much a triumph for the Adanacs back end as it was for the Coquitlam offense that was led by tournament MVP Minto Page 21

Wrestler returns from Youth Olympics B.C. athletes won three of Canada’s 12 medals at the recently completed first-ever Youth Olympics in Singapore. The B.C. team, including Burnaby Central wrestler Parm Dhesi, won medals in taekwondo and swimming at the inaugural Games. Canada’s flag bearer, Jeremy Bagshaw of Victoria, won B.C.’s first medal in the pool, swimming to a bronze medal in the 200m freestyle. Melanie Phan of Port Moody and Stefan Bozalo of Vancouver both placed third in their respective 49 and 79-plus kilogram taekwondo divisions. Dhesi won his first group match at 100kg, outpointing Andries Schutte of South Africa 3-0. Dhesi lost his next two matches to the eventual silver medallist, Abraham de Jesus Conyedo Ruano of Cuba, and eventual bronze medallist, Staywart Kadian of India, before dropping a 3-1 decision to Oyunbold Enkhtugs of Mongolia in a fifth-place matchup.

Bulldogs top dog at Baseball Canada senior championships Tom Berridge sports editor

The Burnaby Bulldogs are this year’s Baseball Canada’s senior men’s champions. Burnaby chucker Steve McCrea spoiled the host team’s party, winning a pitcher’s duel against Dartmouth starter Merek Deska to give the Bulldogs a 1-0 victory in the championship final Sunday. McCrea gave up just three hits, while striking out six Nova Scotia batters. Deska fanned 10 Burnaby batters in his three-hit effort over six

innings. The winning run came off the bat of Kevin Atkinson, who crushed his third home run of the competition, a solo shot in the bottom of the fourth inning. The title-winning run was Atkinson’s ninth RBI at the championship. McCrea was near perfect the rest of the way, allowing just one Dartmouth runner on base in the final three innings. In the semifinals, the Bulldogs avenged an earlier loss to New Brunswick in the tournament with a 6-2 victory to advance to the Sunday gold-medal final.

Rob Harynuk threw a complete game, giving up just six hits, while Jeff Sheppard of Burnaby got the Bulldogs started with a two-run double in the bottom of the second inning. He later scored on a run-scoring single by Mike Elias. In the third inning, Atkinson connected on his second home run of the competition, bringing home Brian Briscoe from second base. On the opening day of play, the B.C. respresentatives were blanked 8-0 by New Brunswick. Burnaby came back the following day with an 8-4 win over

Alberta champion Red Deer. Tim Fehr got the win, going seven innings while giving up 11 hits. The Bulldogs did most of the damage in a six-run top of the fifth. Atkinson began the onslaught with a three-run dinger. Later in the inning, Cory Stang clubbed a second home run that brought home another three baserunners. B.C. blanked Ilderton, Ont. 6-0 later in the day. Scott Rhynold got the win on the mound for Burnaby, allowing just two hits, while striking out five.

Sean Hotzak, Sheppard and Stang, with his second dinger on the day, cranked home runs in the win. On Saturday, Burnaby won its third straight match, blowing out host Nova Scotia 13-5. Burnaby’s Trevor Murray got the win for the Bulldogs, coming on in relief of starter Andrew Brock of Burnaby, who went four and one-third innings. The Bulldogs went ahead 5-0 in the opening inning, scoring all their runs on five errors. Devon Franklin batted in the eventual winning run in the second inning with a one-out single.

Clan makes Div. II football debut Saturday Tom Berridge sports editor

The Simon Fraser University Clan will be making its NCAA Division II debut this Saturday on the gridiron. The varsity Clan are hosting Western Oregon University in their debut in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference at Terry Fox Field. Kickoff is scheduled for 4 p.m. SFU first played in the NAIA under U.S. college football rules from 1965 to 2001 before joining Canadian Interuniversity Sport for eight seasons. This season marks the return to the four-down American game. Santa Rosa junior college transfer Quinton Agosta is expected to be the starter on opening day. Burnaby rookie Stephen Spagnuolo, a Notre Dame Regional grad and provincial all-star who led the B.C. high school in rushing last season, is expected to see the backfield at some point this season. Senior running back Gabe Ephard, who averaged 7.7 yards a carry in 2009 will likely get the start in the back field against Western Oregon. Mathis Baumbach, SFU’s top returning receiver from 2009 and San Mateo transfer B.J. Bryant are expected to be the targets for Agosta in the opener. Along the offensive line, Brad Erdos is the lone returning starter from last season and is a lock at left tackle. Senior Kris Gluppe is expected to move into the starting role at left guard, while former defensive tackle Connor Reh has moved to provide more depth to a young and relatively inexperience O line.

The defensive line returns all four starters from last year, including guards Scott Puffer and Justin Capicciotti, and Blair West and Dan Martin at tackles. At linebacker, two New Westminster Hyacks are pushing for starting jobs on the outside. Casey Chin and Kevin Semenowich are both in a battle against a pair of American university transfers. Canada West all-star cornerback Nigel Parma will move over to halfback this season. St. Thomas More grad Marc DesLauriers was injured in training camp with a bruised heel and is expected to move into the safety spot when healthy. Moscrop grad Jeff Biles will return to his kicking duties for his senior year after missing last season with knee problems. Biles will handle both the placekicking and punts for the Clan. “We have to be able to make this transition (to American rules) without any major hiccups,” said SFU head coach Dave Johnson, in a Clan press release. “Offensively, we are still discovering our identity. We are going to have a multiple set offence, and because we are very young, we are going to use a lot of misdirection and quick hits. “Defensivley, we are a little more established. We have more returning players and we are very athletic, particularly up front on our defensive line.” The expanded GNAC schedule will see SFU play 10 regular season games, including five home games, four of them coming in the first five weeks of the schedule.

Coming soon: The Burnaby-based Grandview Steelers chalked up its first win of the junior hockey preseason, defeating the Ridge Meadows Flames 4-2 at the Burnaby Winter Club back in August.

Jr. B season less than two weeks away The Burnaby-based Grandview Steelers will play their Pacific International Junior Hockey League home opener on Sunday, Sept. 12. In that game, the junior B Steelers will take on last season’s Tom Shaw Conference champion North Delta Devils at the Burnaby Winter Club, beginning at 4 p.m. The two teams played once already in the preseason with North Delta taking a 9-2 exhibition victory. The Steelers play their first game of the season in Ridge Meadows against the Flames on Sept. 10.

Another notable date on the Steelers’ schedule is a game on Halloween Day against Abbotsford. The team will have a lengthy break during Christmas, playing their last game in December on the 19th at home against the Richmond Sockeyes. The Steelers will then resume play at home against Delta on Jan. 2. The final game of the regular season is scheduled for Feb. 20 at the winter club against the Sockeyes. Grandview won its final preseason game 5-1 over the Port Moody Black Panthers on Monday.

BURNABY SPORTY SHORTS Moscrop Secondary School junior Zachary Or and playing partner Kris McCrea of Port Moody won their age group at the Volleyball B.C. beach provincials for a second straight year. The pair won the title without losing a single set in the under-15 boys’ division played at Spanish Banks in Vancouver, Aug. 14 and 15. Their toughest match was a twoset semifinal win 21-14, 21-16 over a Kelowna team.

Or and McCrea won the gold with a 21-11, 21-14 victory over a team from Coquitlam. A total of 15 teams took part in the u-15 age group at the provincial beach championships.

Up and comers

Paolo Dube, Taitusi Vikilani and Denson Cohee represented B.C at the under-14 level at the recent Rugby Canada national championships in Calgary.

Dube captained the B.C. Roar squad, while Vikilani and Cohee played on the Growl team that finished the championships with the most wins. The three clubmates, including a fourth Burnaby Lake player, Lorenzo Bagnato, were selected to the B.C. representative teams following the B.C. Summer Games in Langley in July. Bagnato was named a non-travelling player.

Minto: Winning definitely feels good continued from page 19

Robert Church, Minto Cup leading scorer Matthews with 27 points and righthander Ben McIntosh, who had stellar championship run, including a championshipleading 12 goals. Dan Lewis, who was the NOW’s pick for Minto Cup MVP, won all five games for the Adanacs, while putting up a stellar .843 save percentage in goal for the Adanacs. Lewis stopped 31 shots to earn player of the game honours for the A’s in Game 1. He was even better in Game 2, stopping 40 shots as the Northmen outshot Coquitlam 44-30 in a gallant effort to tie the championship series. “Curt (Malawsky) had us working like a machine,” said Bilic, who garnered his only point of the Minto Cup in Coquitlam’s wild 15-12 win over Orangeville in the round-robin portion of the Minto championships.

“Every game in the tournament was an investment – every game, every shift, every slash. We just gave 100 per cent every shift and it paid off for us,” said Bilic, who along with Loewen battled Coquitlam in two great playoff series in the 2008 and 2009 B.C. playoffs. “Things happened. We all meshed real quickly. It was unexpected,” added Loewen. “Even though I have my Burnaby friends, these are my boys from Coquitlam,” Bilic added. “This year, we were a team.” And none could be happier than MacDonald, who finished up his junior A career with a Minto Cup ring although used sparingly in the championship tournament. “It feels good, definitely good,” said the Vernon goalie. “Yeah, I’ve never won anything before, not even a league championship, so this is a real change.”

THIERMAN, George George lived life to the fullest until his passing August 25, 2010 at St Paul’s Hospital at the age of 92.

His storytelling will be missed by all his family and friends. George was predeceased by his loving wife Tillie and is survived by his children Kathy (Gary), Theresa (Dave), Patrick (Dale), Joe (Gail), John (Doris), David, Andrew and his grandchildren Christina, Caitlin, Laura, Alex and Julie.

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!
