Museum puts a fresh spin on history

TransLink moving out of Burnaby Headquarters will be relocated to New West’s new brewery district in Sapperton by 2013 Janaya Fuller-Evans

staff reporter

TransLink’s corporate headquarters are moving from Metrotown to New Westminster’s Brewery District. The Transit Police will also be sharing the space in a move that will save the company more than $430,000 over current costs, according to TransLink spokesperson Ken Hardie. TransLink has been looking for a new spot for the past two years, as the company’s lease at Metrotower 1 is due to expire in January 2013. “There was an urgent need to relocate the Transit Police,” Hardie said, This story first appeared on adding that the policing facilities are in two separate buildings. “We looked at the efficiencies of co-locating.” TransLink looked at about 17 locations, taking into account how close each was to a SkyTrain station, and other aspects such as resident and employment density in each area. Metrotown was a good location based on these specifications, but so was Sapperton, Hardie said. The timing worked well, as it is currently a tenants’ rental market for office space on both cities, he added. Mayor Derek Corrigan said he understood TransLink’s move was a financially driven decision.

Teen’s death ‘devastates’ city family Alfie Lau and John Kurucz staff reporters

Sixteen-year-old Melissa Tomac should have been starting Grade 11 at Burnaby Central on Tuesday. But Melissa’s family is now grieving her death after a fatal car crash on Sept. 2 in Port Moody. “It’s ripped my heart out, and my life’s never going to be the same,” said father Mario on Tuesday morning. “What I’ll always remember about my daughter is her pretty little face smiling at me each morning. … She was always giving me hugs and kisses. She was the best girl in the world.” The accident occurred shortly after a group of four teens, two males and two females, all from Burnaby, were leaving White Pine Beach Thursday night. The 19-year-old driver of a 1990 white Honda Civic tried passing another vehicle around a blind corner on Bedwell Bay Road and ultimately lost control of the vehicle, which veered off the road and struck a tree. According to Const. Luke van Winkel of the Port Moody Police, Bedwell Bay Road is a 50 km/h zone, with several 30 km/h zone curves. All four teenage occupants were injured and transported to Royal Columbian Hospital. According to van Winkel, Melissa had been sitting in the rear passenger seat. The other three were treated for their injuries, with the most serious injuries to the other female in the car, who was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital for surgery. The accident has been attributed to high speeds and driver inexperience, and police are investigating whether alcohol played a factor in the incident. “At this point, we’re still waiting for results from crash analysts,” said van Winkel. “But witnesses reported it was above speed limit. Speed is a problem on all of our roads with drivers of every age, but there is particular concern with young drivers who are inexperienced and who don’t know how to handle the vehicle they’re driving.” Mario said that in the details of the accident the police gave to him, the driver should never have tried to pass the other car. “I went out to the site to try and put some flowers,” he said. “There are a lot of blind corners and you never try to pass on a blind corner.” Mario said because of the Labour Day long weekend, he was still finalizing details on his daughter’s service on Tuesday afternoon. “I have to be strong for my wife and son,” said Mario. “We have all been devastated by this accident.” 6

At risk? A traffic controller directs drivers on 10th Avenue, near Cumberland Street. Concerns are being raised about the safety of flag persons in the wake of a number of accidents – including an Aug. 29 incident in which a Burnaby driver hit a flag person in a Coquitlam construction zone.

It’s risky out there on the road Alfie Lau

staff reporter

They wear a safety vest and hard hat, and their only tool is a hand-held stop sign. And for traffic control persons, also known as flaggers, their job may be the most dangerous on any construction road project. On July 15, 49-year-old Donald Cain was killed in Mission while on duty as a flagger. In the past five years, 70 flag persons have been injured in B.C., with five being injured this year alone. Also in the past five years, three flag persons have died on the job. And that’s three too many for Starlett Bluhm, traffic control program coordinator for the New Westminster-based B.C. Construction Safety Alliance, which is responsible for training and certification programs for flaggers in the province. “This has always been a high-risk position, and that’s why we are constantly reviewing and updating the training programs for traffic control people,” said Zellers Visions* The Bay* Shoppers Drug Mart* Army & Navy* Rona* Staples* * not in all areas

Bluhm. “We would also like to see better enforcement to make sure all traffic safety persons can do their jobs safely.” The issue of flagger safety has been in the news because on Aug. 29, a Burnaby driver allegedly impaired by alcohol hit a flag person in a Coquitlam construction zone. The incident occurred at about 2:30 a.m. when a 24-year-old man was driving a Toyota Yaris westbound on Lougheed Highway near Colony Farm. The driver struck a 33-year-old female flag person, who was controlling traffic at the entrance to the construction zone. The woman was thrown by the impact. She was taken to hospital, where she was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. She was released later Sunday morning. Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said the initial investigation revealed alcohol was a factor in the accident. Phil Hochstein is executive director of the Burnaby-based Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of B.C. The association offers certification exams for flaggers, and Hochstein is also

concerned about flagger safety. “The job has always been dangerous and that’s part of the training,” said Hochstein. “In the case of the (Coquitlam) incident, I’m not sure the flagger could have done anything because you have someone who may be impaired.” Hochstein said he is in favour of the heavier fines – double – for drivers who exceed the speed limit in construction zones. Bluhm reiterated that while traffic control work is a high-risk position within construction, there are many other dangerous positions within construction work. The challenge with traffic control is mitigating the hazards that arise from contact with the public and motor vehicles. Hochstein said it may be time to look at alternative ways to control traffic in construction zones. He said he recently returned from England, where he saw a system of automated stop lights controlling traffic in work areas. “Maybe it’s time to look at different

Safety concerns: Traffic controllers at work on 10th Avenue, near Cumberland Street.

Beauregard, now the poster girl for WorkSafe B.C.’s Slow Down campaign, was in a coma for six days and in hospital for two months. As part of the safety campaign, Beauregard talks about her injuries in a sobering video aimed at getting motorists to drive slower through road construction sites. It’s not the first time that Beauregard’s plight has been highlighted. Last October, her fellow flag workers organized a rally on the Port Mann Bridge to educate drivers on the dangers flaggers face. The rally caused traffic mayhem, but the flaggers got the message out that their job involves working in busy traffic all the time. “We were not involved in that rally,” said Bluhm, who said the alliance does support the message of raised awareness for traffic control workers. And with seemingly more construction projects in the Lower Mainland set to continue throughout the

rest of the year, flagger safety has never been a bigger issue. “The courses we offer have never been more popular,” said Hochstein. “We have no problem filling those classes. … You see all the construction going on, that’s part of government infrastructure projects and those projects need flaggers. … I just hope they’re all going to be safe.” – with files from Postmedia Network Inc.

approaches,” he said. Traffic control people must pass a two-day course to be certified to work on a construction project. Typically, the first day includes classwork, including: ◆ roles and responsibilities of a traffic control person; ◆ complying with regulations and standards; ◆ setting up work zones; ◆ using traffic control equipment; and ◆ working around equipment. The second day often features practical skills experience outside the classroom and a written or online exam. WorkSafe B.C. requires that any worker stopping traffic must be certified by a recognized training course. In 2009, 5,779 new traffic control persons were certified in the province and, in total, there are almost 17,000 certified flaggers in B.C. Flagger safety was also in the news last autumn when Jennifer Beauregard, 23, suffered a shattered pelvis and other serious injuries while controlling traffic. Beauregard was hit at 6:50 a.m. on Sept. 25, 2009 in Delta by the inattentive driver of an SUV who was texting and driving at the same time. The impact knocked her out of her boots, sending her five metres in the air, and she landed on her head 30 metres away from where she had stood with a traffic sign in her hand. Beauregard had her arm broken in five places, her pelvis shattered, all her ribs cracked and her spleen ruptured. She also had a severe brain hemorrhage.

Break-in suspect sought The Burnaby RCMP is warning the public that a man they suspect was involved in an early morning break-in Monday is dangerous. On Sept. 6, around 2:30 a.m., the police responded to a break-in to a storage locker in the 6100 block of Wilson Avenue in the Metrotown area. When officers arrived at the underground parkade, they found a man and a woman in the storage area. The police arrested the woman, but the man escaped with the aid of pepper spray. The police believe the man is Harpinder

Shergill, who is wanted on an outstanding warrant for break and enter, breach of probation and assault with intent to resist or prevent arrest. Shergill is a 32-year-old Indo-Canadian male, who also goes by the name Harry, and is described as being 5-10, 150 to 170 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He has a tribal art tattoo on his upper left arm as well as his upper back. Police consider him to be dangerous and request anyone with information about his whereabouts to contact the police.

a wide assortment of them. From waves and tides and winds along our coast to water that’s endlessly flowing to the ocean from our rivers and streams, we’ve got so many renewable energy sources to choose from, and in such great abundance, that we will never be able to use more than a fraction of what we have for our own purposes. Looking at the difficult choices our American friends to the south are currently considering, like switching to nuclear power in a big way, I have to ask why we aren’t doing more to share the clean energy resources we have in this province? I am not keen to see this planet piled deep in nuclear waste just to avoid climate change and I’m sure few others are either. When you think about it, it’s really just sheer dumb luck that we ended up with such an incredible bounty of renewable clean energy resources here in British Columbia, and it’s obvious that these clean energy resources could have an enormous impact on efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We’ve definitely got it good here in British Columbia, and because of that we should be stepping up to the plate and bringing our clean energy gifts to the table. In the end, we might even be helping to prevent nuclear waste from replacing greenhouse gases as the planet’s next environmental headache, and that’s a double

win in my books. Trudy Gordon, Burnaby

Let MLAs vote on HST

Dear Editor:

Someone once told British Columbians that the HST would end up resulting in reduced prices for the goods and services it applied to, so that we wouldn’t feel the sting of the tax shift from businesses to consumers. A simple view of one’s bills and transactions would prove this easily enough, but in addition to our personal experiences, Statistics Canada has published a report showing that, contrary to the reassuring words from our Minister of Finance Colin Hansen, the HST has brought about an increase in the costs of goods, and has even contributed to rising levels of inflation. Not exactly good economic sense for those issues, not unless it has become a good thing for housing, electricity and gasoline prices to increase. Some friendly advice to the B.C. Liberals would be to allow a vote on the issue in the legislature. Let the MLAs freely decide to stand with the people, or in solidarity with big business. After all, if the Liberal members of the Legislature are so sure of the economic benefits, then they’ll be willing to vote for it, even if it costs them their positions in the next election. Let the legislature vote.

tee an NDP government because it would split the vote with the B.C. Liberals. The current situation has some striking parallels to the one this province faced back in 1991. Back then, a coalition government that had been in power for too long was crumbling right before our eyes. Its supporters went looking for an alternative, and for almost all of them the NDP certainly wasn’t that alternative. Then along came Gordon Wilson, who breathed life in the dormant B.C. Liberal Party and almost stole the 1991 election on the strength of a single, throwaway sound bite during the televised leaders’ debate. But he succeeded in splitting enough votes to allow the NDP to win.

Politics: Fractured times in B.C. if he did), I can see Delaney taking a stab at things. He’s a pretty good communicator, although his somewhat prickly personality may have to be held in check if he expects to make progress. In any event, the time seems right for someone or some party to seize the obvious anti-government sentiment that is building in this province and do something with it. The NDP always struggles with gaining even a percentage point or two in the popular vote in every election, so it would appear to have limited growth potential. Of course, if the B.C. First Party mobilized itself and actually picked up a significant chunk of voters, it would virtually guaran-

Start the New School Year off Right!

Are we headed towards the same kind of scenario? Ordinarily, I’d say the idea would be far-fetched. But we are not living in ordinary times. Our political scene is fracturing, a fervent populism seems to be sweeping the land, and the desire for change is in the air. It seems the most unanswered question is not which party is going to win the next election (increasingly, that would appear to be the NDP), but which party is going to finish second. The odds favour the B.C. Liberals being that second-place finisher, but don’t completely count out any alternative, whether it’s B.C. First or something else.

Can do attitude: Students Jenica Wong, left, and Sage Lougheed, with parent committee member Simone Gouveia, are getting ready for a bottle drive on Saturday. The bottle drive is part of a fundraising effort to keep the Gilpin daycare centre open after 2012.

Help keep daycare’s doors open Parents and supporters of Gilpin daycare are holding a bottle drive in hopes of keeping the centre open. The Burnaby school district is lending the daycare space at Gilpin Elementary, but only temporarily. Gilpin parents and the South

Burnaby Neighbourhood House have to scrape together about $200,000 for two used portables so the centre can stay open after 2012. The bottle drive is on Saturday, Sept. 11. Residents and businesses can help by donating their recyclable

bottles and pop cans. Donations can be dropped off at Gilpin Elementary, at 5490 Eglinton St., between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. People can also arrange pickups in advance by calling 604430-1776 or 604-762-6998.

Enterprising students launch new year’s work Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

BCIT’s Students in Free Enterprise team is getting back to business. The British Columbia Institute of Technology organization, known as SIFE, is hosting a showcase on Sept. 20 about this year’s projects. Students in Free Enterprise, or SIFE, is an international non-profit organization that gives post-secondary business students the opportunity to help their communities with their skills.

SIFE is hoping corporate sponsors from the Vancouver area will attend the showcase. “We’re looking to secure a corporate donor for each program,” said Will Swanston, vice-president of external relations. Corporations looking for non-profits to include in annual giving plans, as well as businesses who want to become more visible through sponsorships, are ideal sponsors for SIFE, he added. The showcase is scheduled for Sept. 20 at 6 p.m., at Townsquare C at BCIT.

Doors are set to open at 5:30 p.m. Time is scheduled for individual project meetings after 7 p.m. This year’s projects include: ◆ The Spring Living Fair, which promotes green entrepreneurs in the Lower Mainland. Last year, the event took place in Vancouver’s Roundhouse Community Centre. ◆ Lion’s Lair project, which also ran last spring, provides workshops and feedback to burgeoning businesses. ◆ Lion’s Lair project youth series, a new program to help youth in the Downtown

Eastside set goals and use their skills to succeed. ◆ The Fuse gala, a networking event for students, alumni and business leaders. ◆ The Honour House reservist re-entry program, which helps reservists turn military experience into educational equivalencies. Mindworks is a one-on-one consulting business run by SIFE, which pairs mentors with businesses. The program provides pro bono consulting services, as well as paid services, which raise funds for SIFE.

City hall: Former councillor takes aim at Burnaby Citizens’ Association continued from page 8

“There was the shocking mismanagement of the computer software installation,” Rankin said. And residents, including B.C. Liberal politicians, were upset to find a notice for a BCA golf tournament fundraiser in their city calendars earlier this summer. Corrigan attributed the misplaced listing for the mayor’s annual golf tournament on July 14 to a possible staff error. “Staff takes the hit for it,” Rankin said. Rankin last ran for city councillor in 2008 with TEAM Burnaby, but a full BCA slate was elected. BCA won all 16 council positions,

as well as all school board positions. Rankin was first elected to city council in 1983 and was re-elected consistently until 2005. Rankin ran as an independent mayoral candidate in 1999, after leaving the BCA, stating it was because of the party’s ties to the NDP. He ran as a B.C. Liberal candidate in the BurnabyEdmonds riding in the 2009 provincial election. There was not a cohesive opposition to the BCA in the last election, as two TEAM candidates decided to run as independents, Rankin said. “Individual aspirations


caused them to lose sight of the ball,” Rankin said. “You have to be part of a party to do things.” “Historically, when opposition to the NDP has been divided, it has not done well,” he added. But opposition in government ensures a healthier, more balanced government, Rankin said. With regards to the federal and provincial governments, he asked; “Is it healthy to have only one party in the legislature?” “The most effective (way to govern) is to have real

debate,” he said, adding the current council is unified on all core issues. “It’s simply not healthy.” Rankin is not sure if he will run in the November 2011 municipal election – he said he is not planning that far ahead at this point and is focusing on his business and his family – but added TEAM Burnaby’s board of directors plan to have a full slate in time for the election. Another problem with the current council is Burnaby’s record on homelessness, said Rankin, add-

ing he thinks it is probably the worst of any municipality in the province. But Corrigan said that is an issue for B.C.’s Liberal government, not the municipal government. “Most people in Burnaby recognize this issue should be dealt with by the provincial government,” he said. Corrigan added that TEAM members have complained in the past about high taxation but don’t seem to recognize strategies to deal with homelessness in the city would require higher taxes.

Regarding his salary, Corrigan said he thinks it’s fair that the mayor of the third-largest city in B.C. should make the fourthlargest salary. Corrigan added he intends to put himself forward as a candidate in the upcoming election. “I’m thrilled to be running again,” he said. “I’m hoping the people of Burnaby will support me.” The election results will show whether or not the citizens of Burnaby support the BCA-led council’s decisions, he added.

Making a technological splash SHOP TALK

Doug MacDougall

Keeping up with demand B

ack in 1906, the Canadian government passed the Lord’s Day Act, prohibiting a number of activities on Sunday, including “selling or purchasing goods.” The Act was thrown out by the Supreme Court in the 1980s, although many provinces, including B.C., had used an “opting out” clause to permit some Sunday retail activity long before then. But Sunday shopping was just the start of a trend towards longer shopping hours and less regulation that continues to this day. This trend is driven more by customers’ demands than by retailers seeking to increase sales. Successful retailers understand that convenience is important to shoppers, and if that means remaining open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, then so be it. While few stores see the need to go that far, longer hours and fewer restrictions are now the norm. Most shopping centres, for example, are open until 9 p.m. on at least a few nights a week. Some, like Metropolis, are open six nights, and, in response to demand, we have just extended our Sunday hours until 7 p.m. The McDonald’s restaurant in the mall recently went 24/7 (much to the delight of our overnight security and maintenance people, who now have a place to have coffee and a snack on their break). Since it has an outside entrance, it isn’t limited to mall hours. With more and more people working shifts, there is an increasing demand for fast food outlets – Denny’s, McDonald’s and many more – to stay open longer. Some Home Depot stores have been open round the clock for years and contractors love it. Many other major stores, including some WalMart and Real Canadian Superstore locations, are open 24 hours in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Many such stores were already bringing in staff overnight for restocking and maintenance, so for them, it was essentially little more than adding a cashier at the checkouts. Most of a store’s costs are fixed in any case. Rent and utilities, for example, must be paid whether the store is open or not. Security has to be in place round the clock. Shop Talk Page 14

Burnaby-based company has created a fleet tracking application to connect tugboats with log booms Janaya Fuller-Evans

staff reporter

The ocean may be the new technological frontier for companies looking to develop software products. Burnaby-based Cypress Solutions has done just that, creating a fleet tracking application that can connect tugboats and log booms. The software won the North American 2010 NAVTEQ Global LBS Challenge last March and is advancing to the Champion Challenge in Spain on Sept. 20. “It’s pretty exciting,” said Cypress’ communications director Rochelle Garrison. She added that the North American win came with $750,000 in cash and prizes. If the company wins in Spain, it will mean an additional $10,000 cash prize, she said. The software was developed for Catherwood Towing, a Fraser River towboat company, to keep track of the company’s boats, according to Garrison. The marine fleet solution software, VUE, is being used in a device that can be attached to log booms and is waterproof and solarpowered, she said. The company launched the product just this month, though Catherwood has been working with Cypress, and using the software for the past few months, according to Cypress’ president. Today, log booms are tracked using hard pieces of paper – called boom board labels Photo contributed/burnaby now – that are not waterproof and can rip off, Technology at work: Burnaby Company Cypress Solutions’ log boom tracking according to Garrison.

Board of trade surveys city businesses Janaya Fuller-Evans

staff reporter

The provincial economy, changes to Canada’s census, and Canada’s lack of encouragement for green business practices are some of the issues Burnaby businesses are concerned about, according to a board of trade survey. A lack of investment incentives, and a complicated immigration process for foreign-trained workers, were also listed as issues in the survey. The Burnaby Board of Trade recently sent out a member survey to ascertain what

the board’s priorities should be in the coming year. The board’s membership indicated B.C.’s economic policies, including taxation, were its biggest concern, receiving top ranking out of seven choices. “Businesses feel there should be more incentives,” said Darlene Gering, president and CEO of the board. “The government should support B.C. businesses and make (them) more competitive.” The decrease in private investment in British Columbia – from 19 per cent in 2008 to 14 per cent in 2009 according to the board – was the primary economic issue

for members, with 89.6 per cent agreeing the board should approach the provincial government about creating private investment incentives. “Raising capital is a huge problem,” Gering said. “It restricts (business’) ability to expand.” A number of members had also approached her about provincial investment incentives outside of the survey, she said. Other provinces, such as Quebec, are very aggressive in providing government Survey Page 14

Survey: Board of trade ready to act on business concerns continued from page 13

incentives, Gering said, and it is difficult for B.C. businesses to compete without the same incentives here. The B.C. Progress Board ranked B.C. ninth out of 10 provinces in terms of economic growth, which was another major concern for businesses in Burnaby. The survey asked members if the progress report’s findings should be discussed with the provincial government and received the second highest percentage of positive responses, at 88.5 per cent. “They want us to act on that,” Gering said. “It is quite distressing.” The majority of members also said there are not enough incentives or help from the provincial and federal governments to promote and encourage green business practices. Just over 79 per cent of members surveyed said the provincial government doesn’t provide enough encouragement to businesses to “go green.” And 78.1 per cent called for federal legislation that would increase Canada’s commitment to becoming more environmentally sustainable. Other issues included members’ desire to see an increase in research and development funding in B.C., at 73.5 per cent; a difficult immigration process for foreign-trained workers, with 77 per cent

of respondents saying they would like a more efficient approach to be adopted; and the federal government’s decision to replace the long-form census with a non-compulsory shorter version, with 71.2 per cent of respondents saying this will impact Canada’s economy and funding decisions. “A lot of funding decisions are based on the information received from the longform census,” Gering said. “That is very, very valuable information.” Respondents also want more government support to increase the number of post-secondary and university graduates in B.C., with 70.1 per cent saying there is not enough support. The survey will now go to the board’s advocacy committee, who will base the board’s policy positions – and create policy statements – on the findings. The next step is to go directly to the federal and provincial governments about the issues, Gering said, to have face-to-face meetings with the ministries involved. “The provincial and federal governments are really wanting to know what is the pulse of the business community,” she said. “They are sometimes willing to move forward and tweak things. We have had success in the past.”

Shop Talk: Longer hours are the norm continued from page 13

Are these stores gaining sales? Probably not much. But they are satisfying customers’ needs better. For some retailers, however, longer hours can be a challenge and it is difficult for high-end stores even now. Such stores can’t rely on a part-time student to give customers expert advice and assistance on fitting a $1,500 suit, for example, or buying expensive jewelry. You need a level of knowledge and experience that is not required in a store like Wal-Mart or in a fast-food restaurant. Longer hours are tough on Mom-and-Pop stores too. How do you work 364 days a year? But most find a way around it, often by co-opting close family members and other relatives. Customers like flexibility, and most in the retail industry understand that keeping the bottom line in the black means responding to customers’ demands and satisfying their needs.

TASTE Breakfast bars ideal for those rushed mornings ON COOKING Chef Dez


ith the start of another school season, almost everyone’s lives become a bit more hectic – the increased traffic on the road is a perfect example of this. Store-bought, premade breakfast bars are not always the healthiest solution to breakfasts on the run, so I want to share this recipe made with whole wheat flour, oatmeal and ground flax. Make them ahead of time and freeze each of the 16 bars individually. For those hurried mornings,

microwave one bar from frozen on high for 30 seconds, and you are out the door with warm oatmeal in your hand. Yes, the recipe does have butter in it for moisture and tenderness, but remember, this makes 16 bars: That’s only just over two teaspoons of butter per bar. I hope this recipe will take a bite out of your busy mornings. Oatmeal Breakfast Bars Recipe created by Chef Dez/Gordon Desormeaux 2 ¼ cups whole wheat flour 2 ¼ cups quick oats ¾ cup raisins 3 tbsp ground flax seed 1½ tsp baking soda 1½ tsp cinnamon 1 tsp salt ¾ cup butter, room tem-

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a nine-by-13-inch cake pan with baking spray. Tip: Line the pan with parchment paper, leaving the ends sticking out, to make the uncut product easier to remove from the pan once cooled. Combine the whole wheat flour, quick oats, raisins, ground flax seed, baking soda, ground cinnamon and salt in a mixing bowl. Beat the butter and Splenda Brown Sugar Blend together in a separate bowl.

Fall into fun this autumn in the Heights by Denise Le The Heights Contributor

The beginning of autumn always feels like a fresh start to me. Being in the sunny outdoors during the summer revitalizes me, so September is a time where I feel recharged and ready to learn new things and take on new challenges. The Heights is chock full of places where you can learn new things and explore hobbies and interests. Here are our five ways to energize your autumn: • Dance your heart out and meet great people at Dance Addicts Studio (4622 Hastings St.). The studio offers dance lessons, ballroom, Latin, swing, hip hop and more. Another option is to pirouette your way over to hz Ballet Classique (#204-4534 Hastings St.) and learn about program offerings for all ages and skill levels. • Find your musical muse at Dominanta Music School (3849D Hastings St.), Staccato Studios (4663 Hastings St.) or the B.C. Conservatory of

Music (4549 Hastings St.). All schools have a great selection of programs. If you’re looking to purchase or rent musical instruments and instrument accessories, Massullo Music (4242B Hastings St.) retails both new and used instruments. • Stay active during the chilly days by dropping by Eileen Dailly Leisure Pool & Fitness Centre (240 Willingdon Ave.). The facility offers swimming lessons, lifeguard courses and Aquafit classes, as well as a gym. Melt your stress away by taking up yoga at Heart Centre Yoga (3982 Hastings St.) or explore the gyms at Life Centre Fitness (#209-3701 Hastings St.) or Fit Xpress (353 Gilmore Ave.). • Make your photo albums extra special with the perfect scrapbook décor. Making Memories with Scrapbooking (4415 Hastings St.) supplies a beautiful variety of ribbons, stickers and other scrapbooking material. Test your strength and endurance with martial arts classes at one of the Heights’ martial arts studios. Metro

For a little fun this fall, get your toes tapping at Peter Ferreira and Geraldine Goyer’s Dance Addicts Studio on Hastings Street. FILE PHOTO

Performance Taekwondo Studio (4543 Hastings St.) and Sport Kickboxing Federation (4715A Hastings St.) have classes

available for people of all ages and skill levels. Come visit us on the Heights and find your autumn adventure.

Bookstore space is airy, bright and uncluttered By Niki Hope The Heights Reporter

The hunt for the perfect spot to open a used bookstore brought Paul Kirkpatrick to Hastings Street six years ago. But when he finally found his ideal location for Companion Book, there was one hitch. “Before I was there, it was an Italian menswear store. I really wanted the space, but he (the previous owner) refused to close down the business, so I had to buy his business,” Kirkpatrick explains. “So for a month, I ran a menswear store.” Kirkpatrick had a fire sale and then donated about $35,000 in clothes to charity. He closed shop, gutted the space, renovated and opened up his bookstore. Before he made the move to books, Kirkpatrick had worked in the corporate world. But he grew tired of the bureaucracy and yearned to do his own thing. “I wanted to work more and make less,” he says, joking

about the challenges of running your own business, adding, “but I’m happier doing it. “I’ve always loved books. I’ve always loved used book stores but was frustrated by them,” he says. They are often cluttered, dark, the air thick with used-book smell. Kirkpatrick put thousands of dollars into designing his space so that it would be bright, clutter-free and airy. One of North America’s most famous used bookstores is Powell’s Books in Portland, Oregon. It a used-book Mecca, and Kirkpatrick was lucky enough to get a private tour and three days of browsing in the backrooms of Powell’s. Powell’s was one of the first stores to sell used books through the online mega store Amazon. Just two weeks ago, Kirkpatrick started selling his used books through Amazon, and online sales have increased by two to three times already. Kirkpatrick’s store also carries rare and collectors’ titles. “It wasn’t my plan at the beginning (to sell rare books). When

While a big, exciting sale makes for a good story, it’s really the recent titles in nice, shiny pocketbooks from well-known authors and romance novels that are his bread and butter. As for Kirkpatrick, he loves to read science fiction books, books on law, history, spirituality and metaphysics. In the roughly 60,000 titles currently stocked at the store, there’s sure to be a companion book for every reader. Companion Book is located at 4094 Hastings St. For more information, visit

“I sold it for $6,000 to a fellow from South Carolina,” Kirkpatrick says.

One of the most-profitable collectors’ books he encountered was a limited edition Stephen King novel from The Dark Tower series. The book included artwork and was signed by King and the artist. There are only 400 copies of the book.

How to come out intact if your brakes fail CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: I just saw a few minutes of Worst Case Scenario: Brakes Fail on TV, and it seemed like they were suggesting the opposite of what I’ve always been told. Basically, the host was saying if you’re going under 20 mph., then you should try to downshift or use the emergency brake. But if you’re going over 20 mph., you

shouldn’t downshift, because it could cause the transmission to break off, and you’d lose control. Instead, he said you should try to generate friction by swerving, or running into guardrails or small bushes. He also said that if you’re going over 20 mph., you should not use your emergency brake. In the show, he was driving (well, sliding and skidding) down several hills before finally driving through some mailboxes and bushes, and into a tree. What do you guys think of his advice? – Matt RAY: Well, I think he was negligent in failing to suggest that you sideswipe a few parked cars on

the way to the tree. That would have been more fun! TOM: Actually, these days it’s very hard to lose all of your brakes. Cars have dual braking systems. So if you wanted to cut someone’s brake line and cause him to drive over a cliff to his certain death, these days you’d have to cut more than one of his brake lines. And in the real world, without mischief involved, it’s unlikely that both halves of the brake system would fail simultaneously. RAY: Now, it may feel like you’ve lost your brakes, because you may have lost half of them. And when you have a 4,000-pound

vehicle, half of your brakes makes a big difference. But the first piece of advice we’d give is to stand really hard on the brake pedal. Your car may have more braking power than you realize. TOM: The next thing to do is downshift. It doesn’t matter what speed you’re travelling. If you have an automatic transmission, go right to the lowest gear. Modern transmissions are electronically regulated, and the computer won’t allow the transmission to go into too low a gear. It’ll drop to the lowest appropriate gear for your current speed – which will help – and then it will drop down again once you’ve slowed

down some more. RAY: So the transmission will not break off. But even if it does, what do you care? Your interest is in saving your life and those of other innocent people. A transmission can always be replaced. TOM: Once you’ve downshifted, then I would advise you to apply the parking brake. You’ll notice that carmakers no longer call it the “emergency brake.” Their lawyers made them change the name because it didn’t always work in an emergency. But it might work, and it often will work, so you absolutely should give it a try, regardless of speed. RAY: And then, if all of

that fails, start looking for soft stuff to crash into. An unmanned roadside farmers’ market is ideal, as lettuce has proven to be an excellent energy absorber. Good luck, Matt. ◆ Save money by ordering Tom and Ray’s pamphlet, Ten Ways You May Be Ruining Your Car Without Even Knowing It!

’Bellies ready to Mann up against East The past is in the past, says captain Tom Berridge sports editor

The New Westminster Salmonbellies will meet a battle-tested Peterborough Lakers club when they take to the floor for Game 1 of the 2010 Mann Cup championship series on Friday. The senior A Salmonbellies left for Peterborough today after two weeks of practice following the Lakers’ 11-9 victory over the defending Mann Cup champion Brampton Excelsiors on Monday. In the back of their minds is the memory of a four-game sweep back East by the Excelsiors in 2008. An even more painful recollection is the final moments of last year’s Game 7 that cost New West the title to Brampton in the 100th anniversary of the Mann Cup. But Salmonbellies team captain Nenad Gajic says that is all in the past. “We got beaten by a better team,” Gajic said. “We’ll take that and move forward. If we think much about what we had, we’ll forget what we have in front of us. That’s the way we’re going to deal with it.” Gajic admitted there is a part of him that wanted to take on Brampton one more time to square old wounds, but when push

comes to shove, he says, the ’Bellies want to meet the best team out there. “We want to see the best there is so we can beat the best. At the end of the day, the best team will win, and that’s what we want to call ourselves.” When scrolling down the lineup of the eastern champions, familiar names like Sanderson, Grant, Evans, Tavares and Kelusky jump out at the reader. Few questioned believe

the East perceives the New Westminster lineup in a similar way. Gajic dismisses the question out of hand. “In our locker room, I look around and see our super stars, and that’s all I worry about,” he said. “I don’t want to wait until everyone accepts us as a top team.” One man who already believes is New Westminster head coach Bob Salt. “I’m not a God person,

but there is a sports god, and that night, he was not on our side,” Salt said of last year’s final game at Queen’s Park. “It’s no excuse, you can blame us, we played the game. But how many times does Ilija (Gajic) make that play? And (Jordan) Hallsy hit the post twice just before that, and (Cliff) Smitty also hit a post. We just weren’t going to beat (Brampton). We beat them, but they won the Mann Cup.” Salt too, defends his

lineup. Believing that Ontario teams have all the talent is like buying into all the hype of the continental pro league, he said. “It’s B.S.” “We have a terrific offence. It’s going to be hard to check our team,” Salt said. But a Canadian title won’t be won on the skill up front alone, said transition defender Curtis Hodgson, who came to the Lacrosse Page 31

Clan win soccer openers Simon Fraser University’s Carlo Basso made beautiful music in the Clan’s first two varsity men’s soccer games of the season. The freshman forward opened the scoring in the Clan’s season opener against the University of Victoria Thursday en route to a 4-0 win. Basso then potted two more goals in a 6-1 rout over Vancouver Island University at home on Saturday. Basso tallied the first goal of his university career in the 13th minute, taking a long ball from Josh Bennett inside the 18-yard box and firing the eventual gamewinner by the Victoria keeper to the near post. Roman Doutkevitch added a second goal in the 28th minute. SFU scored twice more in the second half from last year’s leading scorer Alex Hanne and Manvir Brar off a deflection in the 88th minute. Hide Ozawa earned the shutout, although largely untested, as SFU outshot Victoria 20-4. On Saturday, redshirt freshman Lucas Ferritto tallied the eventual gamewinning goal at the 30minute mark just two minutes after subbing into the game. Bennett, Geoff Kosub, Juan Sanchez and Basso, with a pair, also scored for the Clan.

The Salmonbellies good luck Mann Cup charm Tom Berridge

sports editor

Jack Fulton could be the New Westminster Salmonbellies lucky charm at this year’s Minto Cup championships. Fulton just celebrated his 84th birthday on July 30, but the passionate Salmonbellie alumnus brings more to the table than just cake-on-the-candle wishes. In 1962, Fulton was the team manager of the senior A New Westminster club that went back East to win the Mann Cup, sweeping the Brampton Excelsiors in four straight games behind the MVP effort of the great Jack Bionda. Back then New Westminster earned the

right to challenge for the Mann Cup following an unforgetable seven-game series against the Vancouver Carlings. “We were up three goals with five minutes to play and God Damn, if they didn’t tie it up,” Fulton said. New West eventually won the game 13-9. The Bellies turned the tables on the Carlings comeback when Jack Barclay intercepted a ball at midfloor and backhanded a pass to a dawdling Bionda, who was always last up the floor,” Fulton said. The Canadian hall of famer deftly potted the eventual overtime game winner. “It was a great, great series,” Fulton added. “That team won 13 straight Mann Cup games.”,

The first four Mann Cup wins came against the Welland Switzers in 1958, four more against Peterborough in ‘59 and the four against Brampton. They also won their first game against Brooklin played here in 1965, but lost the next three games. New West eventually came back to win that series in seven games. The current New Westminster team has an equally impressive record in the playoffs having lost just once in 21 post-season games. But it has yet to taste the victory of a Mann Cup. If Fulton does bring the Salmonbellies luck, he might not even be there to see it. As chair of the alumni golf tournament, he is obliged to be back in time to get

things in order, and that means an early return on Sept. 18. If necessary, a Game 7 would fall on that very Saturday. Fulton’s best shot at witnessing the ‘Bellies win an unprecedented 25th Canadian senior A lacrosse championship title would be to see another four-game sweep of Peterborough. “No, I think it’s my last chance to go back. I think (New Westminster) has got a chance, but it’s tough back there,” Fulton said. The Mann Cup is scheduled to begin Friday, Sept. 10 in Peterborough, following the Lakers’ 11-9 win Monday over the defending champion from Brampton.

NCAA grid opener one What are you looking at? to forget for varsity Clan Tell us your Tom Berridge sports editor

Simon Fraser University took a licking in its first-ever game in NCAA Division II football. The Clan were spanked 38-0 by the Western Oregon University Wolves at Terry Fox Field Saturday. Senior quarterback A.J. Robinson led the Wolves with a three-touchdown, 261-yard passing performance. Trevor Gates hauled in two touchdowns and four receptions for 69 yards. Justin Ore also caught four balls for 95 yards. Western Oregon outgained Simon Fraser 339 to 104 through the air. Clan starter Quinton Agosta and backup Ryan Schwartz combined for only 11 receptions on 33 passes between them. Gabe Ephard was the Clan’s leading rusher, carrying the ball 14 times for 64 yards. Freshman linebacker Casey Chin of New Westminster was the Clan’s leading tackler with eight

tackles. Kyle Bridge, Andrew Marshall and Justin Capicciotti all registered a sack apiece for the Clan. “It’s kind of like when you fight your older brother for the first time, you are going to get knocked around,” said SFU head coach Dave Johnson in a Clan press release. “I was actually very pleased with our effort. We didn’t quit in the second half, and really if was four or five major mental mistakes that led to their big plays.” The Wolves opened the scoring after just three minutes of the first quarter when Robinson hit Ore on a 49-yard TD pass. Robinson threw two more TD strikes in the first half, including a 46-yard bomb that put Western Oregon up 21-0. Backup pivot Evan Mozzochi then came in for Robinson and hit Josh McFarland on a 64-yard TD toss that gave the Wolves a 28-0 lead at halftime. Darryl Valdez rushed for 98 yards for the Wolves,

scoring the final touchdown of the game in the third quarter on a two-yard scamper. Morgan Kelly nailed a 50-yard field goal to finish out the scoring for Western Oregon. “It was a tough lesson, but we did some positive things in the second half, and I think we can take a lot out of that moving forward,” added Johnson. The next game for the Clan is Southern Oregon at home on Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. at Terry Fox Field.

Cal Polyied

The Clan women’s volleyball team also lost its NCAA opener. SFU dropped a 3-1 decision to host and last year’s Division II national champion Cal Poly Pomona at the California Labour Day tournament last Thursday. The Clan rallied from 18-8 down in the third game and went on a 17-7 run to win its only game of the match. Marina Liarsky scored the final point on a game-winning kill.

Lacrosse: Mann Cup starts on Friday continued from page 29

Salmonbellies this season in a trade with Victoria. “I think it starts with our goaltending, and one thing about our defence is depth,” Hodgson said. “We have a lot of big, strong, intelligent and athletic defenders. We showcased that in the Victoria series. It’s the deepest team I’ve played on. It’s an exciting challenge.” Despite an average age of slightly more than 25 years, the New Westminster club cannot be accurately labelled as inexperienced, said the 29-year-old Hodgson. “It’s an attitude and an expectation. If you come in with that attitude and work ethic, success is more likely to come.” But nothing is guaranteed in sport, he added. “It’s why we play, to have a chance to prove we are the best.” One of the best players in the Salmonbellies lineup is Hall. At just 26 years of age, the Surrey lefthander is the consumate pro, playing in both the box and the field game at an elite level, including with Canada’s silver-medal-winning field team at the world championships in England this summer. He is fourth among team playoff scorers, in a lineup that boasts six players with 30 or more points in the post season, all of whom are within six points

of each other. Hall is currently second overall with 19 goals in eight playoff games, one behind linemate Smith. He leads all first-line shooters with a sizzling .463 scoring average in the playoffs. But the sting of last year’s loss still hurts, he says. “I think it’s one of those ones that is going to live with you,” Hall said, while adding that winning the Mann is the only ointment that can take away some of that pain. “That’s exactly it. It makes the memory a little easier to live with.” He says, the regular season was a preparation for the playoffs. And the vast improvement in the team’s play this post season was all about getting ready for the Mann Cup. “I think our team is better that what we’ve shown,” Hall said. Another one who thinks so is Salty. “We’re going to go there. I think we can play better, and if we can, and I don’t know, but if we do, we’ll bring Mann Cup home,” Salt said. Last season was a lesson learned, Salt said, adding this year’s final is not about exorcising the demons from the 2009 Mann Cup but rather preparing themselves for another great series against Ontario’s best. And that is what it comes down to for the

three-time Mann Cup winner, who won his last Mann Cup ring with the ’Bellies as a pickup in 1972. “I just like them,” Salt said of the Salmonbellies. “They are so neat to coach, this is not tough at all. What a group. They know how to get along, … and you don’t see that very often. We just have a bunch of guys that like each other.” The Mann Cup starts on Friday and, if necessary, runs through Sept. 18.

Your BC Lions — In Their Own Words Jon Hameister-Ries - 67 I was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta and didn’t begin playing football until my senior year at Strathcona High School when my team went undefeated and won the city and provincial championships – I’d say that was a pretty good start to my football career! Following my high school graduation, I had an opportunity to head south to continue my education and play football for the University of Tulsa, which was a long way from home but turned out to be one of the most positive experiences of my life. After four years on the Golden Hurricanes’ offensive line, I was excited to hear I’d be returning home to Canada after I was selected by the Lions in 2006 CFL draft. Now in my first full season on the Leos’ offensive line, I truly enjoy coming to work every day and playing football for a living. My teammates on the offensive line would do anything for each other and it’s good to know that the guys you’re going into battle with are people you can count on. From a very young age, I’ve always believed in the importance of higher education, which is why I completed my MBA at Tulsa last year. As a guy who has had a couple of injuries in his career, I know that football isn’t forever and it’s important to look ahead to the future in preparation for the next phase in life. For that reason, I really enjoy taking part in the club’s Lions in the House program. In today’s world, youth are faced with many decisions that can ultimately determine their future and it’s a good feeling to know that I might in some small way inspire a high school student to make positive life choices.
