Stories by Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com School District 43 trustees were already the second-highest paid Lower Mainland school board members, yet they voted Tuesday to boost their pay by another $2,280 each per year. For 2009-10, local trustees earned $25,250 apiece, with $26,000 for the vice-chair and $27,750 for the chair. According to District 43 policies, these stipends are to be adjusted in the second year of each term based on the average indemnity amounts of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody councillors. Currently, the average Tri-Cities councillor receives $32,739 per year. According to the policy, Tri-Cities trustees ought to give themselves a raise of $7,489 each — $4,734 due to Coquitlam council’s remuneration increase, $475 for Port Moody and

Port Coquitlam council, plus another $2,280 because the school board declined their raise in 2007. The last time trustees approved a pay increase was July 1, 2004. However, even without any raises for the past six years, local trustees ranked second among their colleagues at Lower Mainland school districts. According to Surrey school district report from last June, seven Surrey trustees were paid $28,000 each per year — the highest in the province for the largest district with 64,121 fulltime equivalent (FTE) students. Vancouver trustees, overseeing the second-largest district in the province with 53,749 FTE students, were paid $24,131. The seven New Westminster trustees received the next highest pay, at $21,514 per year with only 6,027 students. Abbotsford ($21,000) and Burnaby ($20,407) trustees were the next highest, despite smaller student

populations of 18,495 and 23,293, respectively. On Tuesday, District 43 trustees voted to accept the 2007 increase of $2,280 for a new annual stipend of $27,530 effective July 1 — just $70 shy of the highest paid Surrey trustees — to oversee 29,442 students. John Keryluk was the only trustee who voted against the option, preferring to follow board policy. “If we don’t follow policy, then two years from now or whenever it’s going to be, we’ll be way out of line,” Keryluk said. Trustee Brian Robinson voiced similar concerns. “My feeling is we should either follow policy or come up with our own formula to catch up to policy or write a new policy,” he said. Chair Melissa Hyndes put forward a notice of motion to review the trustee indemnity policy when board meetings resume in September.

“It’s exasperating because we didn’t take our increase in year two of the last term for various reasons. By doing that, when the policy came up again, we tack on that amount. We did this before,” she said. “We actually had the same situation where trustees didn’t take the increase when it was supposed to happen to them, and then we took quite a hefty increase when we did accept it because we were so far behind. … Actually the situation is like déjà vu.” An extra $20,520 must now be found to cover the indemnity increases, since the board passed its 2010-11 budget in May. Trustee Gerri Wallis said she’d be more comfortable considering the increases at budget time, but trustee Keith Watkins disagreed. “The reason we did it this way was to not tie it into the budget,” Watkins said. “Once you tie it into the budget, you never give yourself a raise.”

orking together is better. That’s the idea behind a new co-operation accord between the City of Coquitlam and School District 43, announced during Tuesday’s board meeting. Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart said the agreement will benefit Coquitlam residents through shared services, facilities and resources. “One of my goals is to try to break down the barriers that sometimes exist between the various levels of government and agencies,” Stewart said. “We all serve the same taxpayers, and I think this accord has potential for going a long way to providing much better service to the citizens of our communities. … So it’s really not about benefiting the city or benefiting the school district. It’s about benefiting the citizens of Coquitlam.” The plan includes the potential to swap school district land for city land, if it makes sense for both parties. In particular, different land options could be considered for rebuilding Centennial Secondary school. “There’s no question that there’s been public discussion

about what do you do with Centennial. Let’s put that in the mix,” Stewart said. “Let’s have a dialogue about the range of possibilities that start to come to light once you break out of the silo that a lot of discussions sometimes get made in.” District 43’s secretary-treasurer Rick Humphreys said it’s important to look at existing resources that could be of mutual benefit to both the city and the school district. “Basically the city owns land that may be of value to us. We own land that may be of value to the city,” Humphreys said. “So we’re looking at that to see if there’s ways that we could maybe swap land to the best use of everybody involved.” Although both parties are now working more cohesively, Humphreys said he expects the city and school district will still encounter disagreements. “We’re working much more in co-operation, not to say that we will not tread on each others’ toes. That will happen occasionally, but we hope … when it happens, we have the ability to resolve the issues,

which we didn’t have before,” he said. “Some of these past issues remain in the collective minds of trustees, and councillors as well, where things didn’t go very well and we weren’t able to resolve. Now we’re able to address them.” Stewart agrees decisionmakers need to think beyond their own interests. “Let’s face it. We each have our own agenda, and the agenda that city council gets is a four-inch ring binder. Sometimes you have to remind yourself that there’s other people with similar issues and there’s other organizations in our community that have similar goals,” he said. “So whether it’s work we’re trying to do in co-operation with service clubs across the region or the school district or the other agencies, there are some synergies that can be brought to the delivery of services that we all are directing toward the same taxpayer and asking the same taxpayer to pay for.” School trustees showed unanimous support for the accord at Tuesday’s school board meeting.

There’s work to do on the tax rate: mayor  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

NOW file photo

Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart acknowledged the barrier on business tax rates should be resolved.

Brian Bonney, the CFIB’s director of provincial affairs, in a news release. The federation’s study also suggests that 55 per cent of small- and medium-sized businesses have indicated that municipal property taxes are the most harmful tax to the operation of their business. “B.C. has the worst level of property tax fairness for businesses in Canada,” Bonney said. Both the federation and the local chamber of commerce contend that a cap on business tax rates is part of the solution. Booth is also pushing for electoral reform that would allow businesses to vote. “The chamber absolutely, unequivocally supports taxation with representation, that the businesses absolutely have to have a vote so that they can determine how their money is spent,” Booth said. “[Businesses]

pay three to four times more in taxes, but they use about 20 per cent of the services, so we definitely support evaluating a cap and using a cap that’s more equitable.” On Tuesday, Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart acknowledged the disparity and partly attributed the growing rift to polices set by councils in the 1980s and ’90s. “During that time the tax burden in Coquitlam was disproportionately placed on commercial properties to the point now where it is a barrier to the creation of jobs in our community, and it’s a barrier that we have to solve,” he said. “One of the things I said in my inaugural address was that I want Coquitlam to be the easiest place in B.C. to create a job, and I’m committed to that. And part of that has to be making sure that our businesses continue to get good value for their money, and they do. But we’ve got some work to do on the tax rate.”

Trustees argue for caution in student safety information. I believe as a school board, we need to do our own due diligence when it comes to these kinds of decisions without just making decisions on a kneejerk reaction.” However, trustee Keith Watkins said Port Coquitlam has taken a position and accepted Rogers’ proposal in principle, so the school board should also take a stance on the issue.

“What do you do when the scientists don’t really know? You use your common sense. You use wise judgment. You use prudence and caution,” he said. “And when it comes to protecting children, as this board knows so very well, you take as few chances as possible.” The District 43 board passed the motion to oppose any proposed installation of a cellular tower or antenna within 305 metres of a school, with Hyndes and Shirra opposed.

“I don’t want staff spending a lot of time on this because this is an international issue that’s been going on for 20, 30 years, so there’s no more new information,” Watkins said. “It’s just about taking a position on caution.” Coquitlam resident David Werthman told trustees during the board meeting that no one yet knows the long-term effects of low-level radio frequency energy.

Charges laid in extortion case A 25-year-old Port Coquitlam man is facing five charges as a result of a police investigation last Friday that saw Mary Hill Elementary school locked down for close to an hour.

SHARE names new CEO SHARE Family and Community Services Society announced Tuesday that the search for a new chief executive officer (CEO) was over, naming Martin Wyant as the successful applicant. Most recently the CEO of Sault Family YMCA in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., Wyant has an extensive background in both social services and the private sector. Wyant will replace outgoing executive director Joanne Granek, who is retiring at the end of the month. Wyant’s appointment as head of the organization is effective as of July 5.

Coquitlam RCMP and the Lower Mainland emergency response team descended upon the home that morning, executing a search warrant to sweep the residence. Cpl. Bert Paquet said at the time that the victim was uninjured. “The victim’s OK. He was never hurt or injured in the process and all is good,” Paquet said. Sandl has been remanded in custody until his trial date.

Fernando Sandl appeared in Port Coquitlam provincial court Monday to face charges of possession of a weapon contrary to a prohibition order, extortion, robbery, kidnapping and confinement. The charges stem from an incident that took place June 11 in the 1900 block of Pitt River Road, where police said a 24-year-old Port Coquitlam resident was allegedly the victim of both an extortion and forcible confinement.

Opinion

‘None of our hands are clean’ in gulf oil disaster The horror and feeling of powerlessness I’ve felt while watching the Gulf of Mexico oil spill disaster is something I’m sure many others share. But none of our hands are clean in this matter since we all rely so heavily on petroleum products like gasoline. To The One answer suggested by many is to turn to electric cars in urban areas. This could possibly work well in British Columbia where more than 90 per cent of our electricity is produced from clean hydroelectric sources. However, until the United States can find an alternative to burning coal to produce its elec-

tricity, any move to electric cars in that country will just be replacing one fossil fuel with another — because half of the electricity in the United States is produced from burning coal. A solution must nevertheless be found, and if that means places where Editor clean electricity can be produced easily, such as British Columbia, are to supply places that cannot, then this must surely be preferable to the nightmare that has unfolded in the Gulf of Mexico.

Our View

Tragically, the risk has not abated

I

t has been said (although not by us) that women and men now enjoy complete equality in society. Even if that were true when it comes to opportunities in business, there is still one way in which women are decidedly unequal. So many domestic violence cases between partners involve the victimization of women. Violence against women, both inside and outside of relationships, still rampantly plagues our society. We have seen two ongoing and vivid examples of this in the last week. In New Westminster Supreme Court, jurors heard that Gwendolyn Jo Lawton and Sheryl Lynn Koroll were strangled and beaten to death. Whether the accused, Davey Butorac, is the guilty party is still up to the jury to decide. All we can know with certainty is that their deaths were brutal. Recently, police revealed that the young woman shot dead in Cloverdale was Marianthi Teresa Tsanas. She was killed by a man she had a relationship with, police say. He took his own life later that day. Homicides such as these make headlines. The assaults, threats and intimidation that fill out domestic violence statistics seldom come to full public attention. Fortunately, the third story on this topic this week is a hopeful one. The Langley RCMP have gone after domestic violence, and their tactics have proved so successful they may be adopted province-wide. The police focus is on protecting the victims, both women and children. They’ve been successful, with more prosecutions and more convictions. This is a step in the right direction, and we need to take more of these concerted steps toward shielding those vulnerable to domestic violence. It’s important to hold up the efforts like this one, to show that men and women working together can work to end the unthinkable violence that still takes victims each and every year.

than an RCMP oversight agency that can only make recommendations that the Mounties and feds are free to ignore. While further details are scarce, it looks like police will continue to investigate police. The new agency’s investigative powers seem limited to secondary interviews with witnesses and reviewing evidence that the police submit. We don’t know who will staff the agency. Will they be specially Editor trained civilians, free of conflicting loyalties? Or will they be ex-cops and political hacks? Will the agency itself be accountable? This is a key point because it took ongoing vigilance from activists, opposition politicians, media and an especially tenacious ombudsman to keep Ontario’s special investigations unit (SIU) from becoming an apologist for the police. The SIU isn’t perfect, but it’s Canada’s best example of a police oversight agency. The Conservatives have fallen far short of that model. So have the provincial Liberals and NDP.

I demand that the last be based on usage and not on income. Only this may ensure true water savings. Why isn’t the installation of water meters going ahead? All this happens when the municipal taxpayer pool grows. It is a disgrace that PoCo will pay in perpetuity for traffic congestion caused by Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain development. Such capital expenditures should be planned and paid by all involved municipalities. That is a role for Metro Vancouver, which does not do anything about it, but charges us money. Better planning for the whole area and savings on unnecessary numbers of senior staff, councillors, mayors, if possible. We do not need three or four small municipalities. They should be livable and not grandiose, which seems to be the goal of some councils and staff. Coquitlam, Port Moody, Port Coquitlam and Anmore should amalgamate into one municipality for the sake of its residents. It is a smart solution. Amalgamation of Toronto is an example.

Knowing more about Nigeria

Social justice students from Charles Best Secondary hope to catch the attention of the federal government through their recent petition campaign. The students headed down to Vancouver’s Robson Street last month to raise awareness about the conflict in Nigeria’s Niger Delta,

where multinational oil companies have polluted the environment through oil leaks and natural gas discharges. According to social justice teacher Ken Ipe, the spillage equals one Exxon Valdez crisis per year for 50 years. “Though international laws and the Nigerian supreme court side with the beleaguered residents of the Niger Delta, the gas companies refuse to take responsibility — and the Nigerian military government ignores them,” Ipe said in an e-mail. “Over 50 years and $700 billion revenue for the military government, there remains acid rain, little infrastructure, shorelines of oil sludge (where white beaches stood), dead fisheries and reduced life spans.

“In light of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, we hope that this far worse event can get exposure.” The students collected hundreds of signatures in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery, where they gathered with pamphlets and posters they prepared. New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly will present the petition to the House of Commons, asking for “a third-party factfinding mission about the conflict in the Niger Delta progressing to negotiations with full representation for all parties with the desired outcome of a binding agreement for all  CONTINUED ON PAGE 9, see NEXT.

Activism as such is the basis of good citizenship,” he said. “Unfortunately, some still do not take the political views of teenagers seriously, but ironically, these young adults are the most informed Canadian generation ever. But with such awareness must come moral courage to make a difference.” In addition to the situation in the Niger Delta, the Charles Best social justice 12 class has spent this semester studying genocide, poverty, women’s rights and gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues.

The ancient Chinese technique of acupuncture has been successful in China for over 2,000 years. Jane Wong has over 34 years experience as an acupuncturist. Two of Jane’s patients attest to the effectiveness of acupuncture. 74-year old Edna has been smoking for 61 years. “I’ve been smoking since I was 13 years old, often two packs a day. After just three acupuncture treatments I’ve quit.” P. Chew, 88 years old was having Sciatica. He could walk, stand up, and sleep alright, but could not sit, if he did - the unbearable pain would almost paralyze him. He was given pain drugs, but after taking them a few times he decided to stop and 34 Years Experience came to me. Now, he is free from the problem and lives happily.

Jane says the centre can help with such problems as allergies, infection, arthritis and osteo arthritis, rheumatism, backaches, over-weight, sinus, chest pains, arm and shoulder pains, asthmatic wheezing, headaches, insomnia, stroke, quit smoking, sciatica, and eyesight.

Zajac Ranch caters to special campers with unique needs No kid should go without camp — even if they have special challenges. The Centre for Epilepsy and Seizure Education in British Columbia is currently accepting applications for the sponsorship of up to 10 children with epilepsy to attend the Zajac Ranch Camp for Children this summer. The cost of the five-day camp experience, occurring from July 26 to 30, will be fully subsidized. Children impacted by epilepsy face many challenges including social exclusion, physical challenges, isolation and low self-esteem. Their families also sometimes experience difficult economic situations that are exacerbated by their child’s medical condition. These children are often unable to attend regular camps because of their unique medical needs. At the Zajac camp, children living with epi-

lepsy and seizure disorders do virtually everything other kids do at camp. Thanks to specially trained medical volunteers, program staff and adaptive equipment, children with epilepsy and other serious medical conditions make friends, discover the excitement of new outdoor adventures and experience the positive feelings that come from realizing their inner potentials. Parents can also feel reassured that their children’s needs are well looked after at the on-site, state-of-the-art, medical clinic that is available to their special camper 24 hours a day. Sponsorships for campers from seven to 17 years will be accepted on a first-come, firstserved basis. For further information or to apply, contact the Centre for Epilepsy and Seizure Education in British Columbia at 604-853-7399.

Organized by the United Scottish Cultural Society and organizing committee, the 80th annual B.C.

years, but since moving to Coquitlam Town Centre almost 20 years ago, we believe we’ve found our permanent home,” chair Angus Macpherson writes on the games’ website. The full slate of traditional events are planned, including solo piping and drumming, pipe bands, highland and Scottish country dancing and the now famous haggis hunt.

A bagpipe history presentation and lesson begins at 12:45 p.m., with premier professional bagpiper Ed McIlwiane. The ever-popular sword

dance presentation and lesson is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. with Kate McRae, who has been involved in Highland dancing for 25 years and teaching since she was just 16 years old. Those looking to brush up on their Gaelic can drop by at 3 p.m. for a language and music lesson with Maureen Lyon, a native of Island of Lewis and longtime member of the Vancouver Gaelic Choir and 25-year Gaelic tutor. As always there will be reminders of Caledonia, old

and new, around the stadium, and organizers encourage visitors to take their time and become familiar with each area. And there are plenty of fun events for younger visitors including face painting, kite making and haggis tossing. For information, visit www. bchighlandgames.com.

PCT vice-president and general manager, Ken Catton, challenges other local golfers to join in the fun and take on his ace team. “Tee up for literacy,” says Catton. Why not take up the challenge and support a worthy cause? For a tournament entry fee of $170, your day of golf will include green fees, cart rental, lunch on the course, contests, prizes and an evening banquet as well as live and silent auctions.

Health Report

Improve the quality of your sleep tonight by replacing your old polyester comforter with a healthy new wood duvet!!

FACT 1: Our bodies are made up of nearly 75% water. We can lose an average of 1 litre of moisture through perspiration every night! Wool is the only natural fibre known to mankind that works to absorb perspiration during the night and then release it during the day. It can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without making the body feel damp. FACT 2: Wool duvets can automatically adjust to each body's ideal temperature level allowing different couples their ideal environment. This allows you drier, warmer and more comfortable night's sleep. They can relieve "night sweats" and benefit people who suffer from rheumatism, arthritis, and injured areas of the body. Polyester fill can not do this. FACT 3: Wool duvets are naturally hypoallergenic and antimicrobial so they deter dust mites. Your body never comes in contact with the wool because it's encased in a fine, smooth, high-thread count natural cotton cover. Our wool duvets are specially manufactured to create a light airy, warm, insulating batting making it ideal for those warm weather nights. Ask about our wool pillows and mattress toppers too, to create a really luxurious sleep environment!

The seventh generation Porsche continues its legacy of combining fun with fast.

Same old, but in a good way David Chao editorial@thenownews.com

Introduced in 2005, the sixth generation of Porsche’s legendary 911 has received nothing but praise — and the new, seventh-generation car is even better. The 2010 911 design takes things up a notch from a car that was already impressive, offering cutting-edge technology, exceptional styling and the lively, energetic feeling that 911 owners love so much. On the low end, there’s the base Carrera,

all-wheel-drive Carrera 4 and the glass-topped Targa 4, available in coupe and cabriolet body styles, and performance-tuned S versions. Then there are the top dogs. The GT3 RS is the model for a track-ready sports car, and the slightly relaxed GT3 brings that performance to the road. Then there’s the GT2 RS, boasting a ridiculous 620-hp and a zero to 100 km/h time of 3.5 seconds. But none of them can really compare to the 911 Turbo, an iconic car for generations.

The facility introduced several innovative techniques in British Columbia and it was the first in the province to offer ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy and ambulatory phlebectomy several years ago.The clinic is unique in that it makes extensive use of advanced color doppler and duplex ultrasound, to detect all the diseased vein segments and accurately pinpoint the source of the varicose veins.The technology thus enables delivery of a sclerosing solution into deeper lying vessels with precision that would be very difficult to achieve with conventional techniques. All this makes the treatment safer and more effective with excellent functional and cosmetic results.

TEAM OF THE WEEK

Mosque members fight global poverty They walked because they cared. More than two dozen members of the Ismaili Mosque in Port Moody joined thousands of people last month at Lumberman Arch in Stanley Park to help eradicate poverty across the globe. World Partnership Walk has become Canada’s largest event after getting its first strides in 1985 with a group of volunteers from Vancouver’s Ismaili Women’s Organization Committee. Driven by a desire to give back to the impoverished countries they had grown up in, the group persuaded nearly 1,000 walkers to don their sneakers for the fight against global poverty and raised $55,000. More than 25 years later, the Walk is held in nine cities across Canada where corporate, individual and team supporters and volunteers have collectively helped to raise

more than $50 million in support of international development initiatives. The Port Moody contingent donned red shirts for the affair, which went ahead on May 30. More than $1.7 million raised from the Walk in Vancouver will allow the Aga Khan Foundation Canada to invest in community-led, long-term initiatives in areas of education, health, rural development and strengthening civil society. “We are not giving the fish to the people, but we are allowing the people to learn how to fish for themselves,” Shellina Lakhdhir, regional campaign manager, said in a release. Some of Aga Khan’s projects include micro-philanthrophy, or smaller loans to families and individuals that make a huge difference. For information, visit www.worldpartnershipwalk.com.

The B.C. SPCA is urgently seeking homes for 35 cats who were seized in a major cruelty investigation last October. The sick and badly neglected cats were rescued from deplorable conditions in a Delta residence and have been receiving medical attention and rehabilitation at the B.C. SPCA’s animal protection centre in Chilliwack since the seizure. “The cats were suffering from a wide range of serious physical and psychological issues, but through the ongoing care and dedication of our staff, we feel that many are now ready to be adopted into loving homes,” said Ivanna Ferris, branch manager. Ferris adds that the extensive rehabilitation required by the cats would not have been possible without the support of veterinarians who provided free or reduced services for dental surgery and other procedures. Ferris said some of the cats will need ongoing help to feel comfortable being handled “but they have come such a long way. “Given everything they have suffered, we would really like to find them loving homes where they will get the care and attention they deserve,” Ferris said. The Chilliwack branch is open to the public by appointment only. Anyone wishing to visit the cats available for adoption should call the branch at 604-823-6612.

Score Card

Adanacs stall, fall in Langley For the fourth game in a row, the opposing goaltender made life difficult for the Coquitlam Adanacs. The Western Lacrosse Association squad suffered its fifth straight loss Wednesday, dropping a 12-7 decision to the Langley Thunder in the Valley. While they outshot the Thunder, the Adanacs couldn’t measure up on their own side, blowing a 5-3 lead in the second period. Langley found its groove with five unanswered goals to end the period, and began where they left off with four more to start the third. Former PoCo junior Kevin Croswell turned back 48 shots as the Thunder moved into a three-way tie for fourth place with Coquitlam and Nanaimo. The Adanacs grabbed the lead when Peter Veltman and Dane Dobbie tallied to open the game. After Langley’s Reese Bailey put them on the board, Dobbie netted his second with just six seconds left in the period. In the second frame, the teams traded goals, with Cory Conway and Steve McKinlay counting for the Adanacs. Then came the Langley wave. Joel McCready potted three goals in the second and added his fourth of the night midway through the third. Former Coquitlam transition player Todd Stockdale also scored. Dobbie and Daryl Veltman finished up Coquitlam’s scoring. Making 34 saves on 46 shots was Brandon Atherton. The 3-5 Adanacs were without the services of suspended player Ray Guze and injured and ill Bruce Murray and Ben Prepchuk. They host first-place Victoria, 7 p.m. Saturday at the Sports Centre.

THE MOTIONS: Team B.C. head coach Tom Kudaba, shown running a Terry Fox scrimmage last year, will lead a stacked under-18 team to next month’s Football Canada Cup in Nova Scotia. The team also includes seven Fox players.

B.C. lineup set for u-18 football Canada Cup Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com While most of the world focuses its vuvuzelas on football of another kind, some in B.C. are blowing their horn for the Canadian game. In preparation for next month’s Football Canada Cup under-18 championships in Nova Scotia, Team B.C.’s roster has been set after a gruelling series of camps, tryouts and an exhibition test. Head coach Tom Kudaba has taken up the honour of putting B.C. back on the national championship map after

the province’s self-imposed 10-year absence. As big of a challenge as it represents, the Terry Fox Ravens co-coach feels the experience for all involved should be its own reward. “It’s going to be a learning curve for us, no doubt,” Kudaba said. “We haven’t (competed nationally) for 10 years and we will probably be considered as the new junior program, the renegade on the block.” A series of tryouts whittled the initial numbers from more than 200 players to the 56 who participated in last week’s exhibition game with the Big Kahuna Rams’s first and second year players of the B.C. Junior Football League — a

game that ended in a 57-7 victory for the provincial side. Making the final 40-man list were seven Terry Fox players: defensive backs Cam Canales, Matteo Nardone, Ben Sharpe, linebacker Jacob Patko, and linemen Alex Agnoletto, Robert Reandy and Jared Soll. “The toughest part of the whole thing was waiting to hear if you made the next round,” said Soll, who will man the defensive line. “I really like sports, so trying out for this was better than just getting lazy-summer mode.” While most of the team is composed of players from the Lower Mainland, Kudaba noted that the ini-

tial tryout camps, which were held in Kamloops, Nanaimo, Langley and New Westminster, were all well attended. “The kids were fantastic through the whole process,” the former Canadian Football League lineman said. “We were able to use various skill testing sets that followed CFL models… We have a lot of great athletes in this province, and this team is an example of that.” B.C. hasn’t competed in the national championships since high school teams started playing U.S. rules. With nearly every player use to the southern style, one of the main challenges as they head  CONT. ON PAGE 35, see SEVEN RAVENS...

Clan coach has NCAA credentials

As they prepare to enter the NCAA Division II basketball world, the Simon Fraser University Clan athletic program’s head honchos decided they needed someone with NCAA experience. The Clan got their man when they named James Blake as the team’s new head coach on Wednesday. Blake, a Victoria native, took over the position made available when Scott Clark resigned in May to coach in Kamloops. He brings a familiarity with the U.S. system and the challenges that SFU faces as it prepares to debut in Div. II this fall. “I can’t wait to get started,” Blake said in a press release. “I’m extremely excited to have this opportunity. I’ve talked to the majority of returning players and to the incoming players and I look forward to working with each of them.” His journey to Burnaby Mountain has been a wieldy one, including stops at the NCAA Div. 1 and 2 ranks over nine seasons. Last year he was

the associate head coach at Columbia College. He also spent two years as an assistant coach at California State University-Northridge where the team won two Big West titles. His own playing days included a CIS national championship in 1996 with Brandon, and a Canada West title in 1999 with UVic. His first test will be a major one — filling a number of choice on-floor positions, with just five confirmed players returning. “Recruiting is my No. 1 priority right now, I will be all over Canada and the U.S. during the July recruiting period, as well as burning the phone lines to chase down players,” the 33-yearold Blake said. “I have coached Canadian players in the U.S. and they have all said that if there was an NCAA school in Canada they would have loved the opportunity to stay at home and play NCAA basketball in Canada.” The Clan will be the lone Canadian school competing in the NCAA, debuting this fall in the Div. 2 Great Northwest Athletic Conference.

year, Nielsen also earned AllAmerican status. “It’s the same thing I did last year at nationals,” Nielsen told The Province’s Howard Tsumura. “My last throw was my best one. I was feeling good all day, I just hadn’t caught one.” The Centennial Secondary

alumnus had earlier set the tone for the nationals with a third-place showing at the PAC10 championships last month. In April, Nielsen posted a personal best throw of 75.32 m. The focus for him now turns to the Harry Jerome International Track meet, July 5 at Burnaby’s Swangard Stadium.

to Nova Scotia is adjusting to the longer field and fewer downs game. “At first I thought it would be more difficult,” Patko said. “You have the bigger field and different motion rules, but you get use to it. When I was younger I played Canadian ball in minor, so it’s not a total

surprise.” In the process of picking the team, the coaching staff — which includes fellow Fox co-coach Martin McDonnell, Mouat head coach Denis Kelly and South Delta’s Ray Moon — was very aware of the scrutiny the final choices would face from the B.C. fraternity. None of the four members from the B.C. AAA champion-

ship Centennial Centaurs who tried out made the final cut. Kudaba said those named were the best fit for the team. “I’m sure people will say there were politics involved in (the selections), but I honestly feel we approached it very objectively… We’re not short of talent and skills, which I think this whole process has helped demonstrate.”

Westell finishes 11th at Sr. BCs Coquitlam’s Val Westell finished the three-round B.C. Senior Women’s championship in a tie for 11th place. Westell’s three-day total of 249 put her 18 strokes back of champion Phyllis Laschuk at the Summerland Golf and Country Clubhosted event. She shook off a rough start — where she recorded a triple-bogie on the first hole — to register rounds of 82, 82 and 85. Tied for 20th overall was Coquitlam’s Tia Chisholm, who posted rounds of 87 and 88 before closing strong with a round of 82 for a total of 257. Port Coquitlam’s Rachael Carter placed 25th with a three-round score of 259 (83, 86, 90). Both Chisholm and Carter golf out of the Vancouver Golf Club.

CAMP TIME: Basketball coach Tony Scott, at left, anticipates a lot of fun and skill-honing at this year’s NOW Newspaper Basketball Summer Camp, which tips off July 5.

Hoop camp set for summer In seven years, Tony Scott has taught a lot of kids about the joy of basketball. The annual NOW Newspaper Basketball Camp has also helped him pass along his appreciation of the sport. Scott, who has coached hoops at the high school and provincial team levels, said the primary focus of the camp is to give kids an opportunity to grow in the sport. “My camp goal has always been directed towards developing players’ skill sets and help develop an excitement for the game,” said Scott. As a coach, he understands the importance of adjusting to the situation. Facing a tough zone one game and a man-toman scheme the next means players and coaches have to move quickly. It’s the same at a summer camp. “The game has evolved a lot and with the evolution the changes had to be implemented into the way we teach and motivate players.” With the program offering separate girls and boys sessions for both middle school and secondary-aged students, it is geared to fit those with a basic knowledge, and the hard-edged experienced veteran. While that presents an interesting challenge, Scott said it’s also part of the joy of coaching. “My camp has had players that are wanting to improve their skill sets and those players that have little playing experience,” he noted. “Our camp has always welcomed all types of playing abilities … (we) always encouraging young and older players to continue to stay involved with one of the world’s most popular sports.” The week-long camp (held at Gleneagle Secondary July 5-9 or Aug. 9-13, depending upon participant’s grade level) covers the terrain of drills, skills and

frills, with the rewards based on personal skill levels. For Scott, the rewards for him come from seeing the players finding their comfort zone in the game. “When we see a player at the end of each session or at the end of camp do a skill that they couldn’t do before… then a smile comes across his or her face,” he said. “That acknowledges that they finally have completed the skill without thinking about it. That is a great feeling for me.” To register or for more information, contact Scott at tscott@sd43.bc.ca

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Relationships are important and potentially lucky Sunday. Talk, visit, travel or make a decision about one that has been a bit of a burden (or support!) for some years. You want to dive into the depths (sexual intimacy, financial commitment, research, secrets, investments, big health change) Monday to Wednesday morning, but think first. Wisdom and luck seldom go hand-inhand (ain’t that unfair, eh?) but both might combine Wednesday/Thursday. Still, major separative possibilities loom by Friday, so tread cautiously in law, love, education, international, career and family zones.

June 20 - 26

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy will start growing soon! (Monday onward.) The four weeks ahead are your time to wield your clout, attract others, interview, ask favours, make major changes in direction and set important projects in motion. In all this, you will have to be more diplomatic than usual, especially this week – huge opportunities might face you, but they depend at least partly on the goodwill or co-operation of others. (If you’re an artist, writer, this –now through 2024 – is a time of potential fame.) Romantic atmosphere Monday/Tuesday. Those opportunities/oppositions Friday/Saturday.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The weeks ahead (especially this one) brew a change in your living circumstances and your career or social position. To some degree, you have control over this, and can “play your hand” or attempt to squelch these changes. But consider: the forces of change will only grow stronger (and inevitable) over the next 14 years, and at present change represents a great opportunity for you, can bring bright new horizons in romance, marriage, relocation, contracts and partnerships – and fame! Talk/writing’s lucky Wednesday, but if you talk too much late week you could blow a deal.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The weeks ahead accent relationships, opportunities and oppositions. You could meet an exciting member of the opposite sex – he/she seems quite talkative, might be “flustered” by events surrounding him/her. (This would indicate that marriage is not a good long-range possibility. Be aware.) You’re like a walking destiny flag this week; you’ll come into people’s lives at critical junctures. Be diplomatic, humble, not withdrawn. Be ambitious Sunday. Hopes, happiness, bright horizons Monday/ Tuesday! Take a breather Wednesday p.m. to Friday eve. You shine, attract others, Saturday.

Taurus April 20-May 20: The month ahead brings short trips, communications, details, paper (computer) work, sibling visits – a busy but not hugely important time. However, events around you will be important. You went through your major life crises in the 1980s through early 2008. Others go through theirs now, especially Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. For you, these crises affect your communications and other secondary life activities. So make adjustments in these areas, especially Monday and Thursday/Friday. Relationships excite Monday/Tuesday. Sweet luck in intimacy, finances Wednesday!

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Retreat. Rest, lie low, contemplate, avoid the spotlight while you do four things: catch up on neglected chores or government paperwork, plan, recharge your energy reserves, and re-connect with the spiritual realm. All these, as well as your work and health areas, face big changes this week, and generally to 2024. Realize flexibility is sometimes a good thing. When we aren’t charitable toward others we destroy ourselves. Your social connections and your attitude toward romance are also changing – see brightness here. The delusions/ illusions of the past decade will disappear, very soon!

Scorpio Oct.23-Nov.21:This week features change – and difficult relations with a Gemini or Virgo and/ or in communications, especially legal, publishing, intellectual or long-distance communications. Consider in these areas, that Gemini or Virgo is likely right, is fighting your limitations (which makes you uneasy). The change is not central – you went through your main life struggles in the 1980s to mid-’90s. It affects four areas, in order of intensity: communications, siblings; background, government; work, health; and those areas first listed (legal, publishing, etc.) and (gentle but deep) love areas.

Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Tackle chores over the few weeks ahead. It’s humdrum, but you might as well plunge in.You’re rather insulated from the big changes going on all around you. Still, this month, especially this week, might transform work, employment, health and your relations with institutions, the government or head office. Listen to your hunches, to the spiritual side. You often find Gemini romantic, Virgo sexy. This week, either someone in these signs has a lot of difficulty, or you have difficulty with him/her. Be patient. Sunday’s mellow. Friendship Wednesday/ Thursday. Retreat Saturday.

Gemini May 21-June 20: Read Taurus message – you, too, have largely gone through your life’s walk of fire, and your future is growing more calm. But major changes still loom, now to 2024, in finances, sex and to 2017 in friendships, romance, sports, and creative or child-related zones. All these are strongly affected this summer, particularly this week. You probably won’t see fireworks, but things are changing! Take the helm of your ship, especially Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Anyone who will not cooperate will never co-operate. Turn elsewhere. A big money change!

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The four weeks ahead boost your popularity. The future will brighten, optimism will reign! The world has more problems than usual, all this spring/summer, but these intrigue you, you can find opportunities “in the cracks.” Like Gemini, you’ve been through the main crises of your life, the last 12-15 years. It’s time to raise your sights – and your head! (Posture affects how others “handle” you.) A wish is likely to come true, could involve friendship or romance, creativity or children. Main accent all week: change in friendships and love. Be ready for it, respond, be happy!

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The few weeks ahead accent life’s mysteries and depths – including sex, investments, debts, lifestyle commitments and major changes, and health. Your subconscious will float to the surface, bring dreams, hunches. Pregnancy is possible for “eligibles.” Change will come to, or manifest via, these areas – and it will affect not only these zones, but also what (and whom) you possess, and what you earn. Dig deep, don’t be satisfied with surface answers. But also accept changes, especially in money, social and communications zones. Hard truths are true truths this week. Don’t invest – yet!

Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your passionate, romantic, love-oriented, creative, risk-taking side rises strongly over the next few weeks. You’ll ride a winning streak! But one you meet this week might not be a good marriage prospect. Your own marriage and/ or business partnerships might also face difficulties. The problem isn’t in the relationship, it involves work, health and similar practical difficulties (e.g., the army ships your mate out). A soul-deep, serious but blossoming change occurs this week in social connections and/or romance. Mysteries Sunday. Be ambitious Wednesday! Joy (sensual?) Saturday! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
