Radio field day event this weekend Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com

ort Coquitlam’s amateur radio club is setting up a remote station in Castle Park this weekend to connect with other radio operators from around the globe, and everyone’s invited to give it a try. It’s all part of a worldwide amateur radio competition that tests communications skills and emergency equipment. And the more people who make radio contact, the more points the local emergency preparedness communications (EPCom) team will earn in the contest. Starting tonight (Friday), TriCities radio enthusiasts will set up camp complete with tents, cots and radio gear. Volunteers will operate the city’s radio equipment for 24 hours using generators and solar power. They must be entirely self-sufficient to simulate conditions that could happen in a real emergency. Paul vanPeenen/NOW At 20 years old, EPCom City of Port Coquitlam emergency program officer Cheryl Lalonde makes sure the equipment is ready to go for member Stephanie Gaube this weekend’s annual field day event for amateur radio operators.

Tri-Cities crooks will find it more cozy in local jail cells for the next few months. Ridge Meadows RCMP is without detachment holding cells during ongoing renovations, and has turned to its Coquitlam colleagues for help. “It’s just a matter of being a good corporate neighbour. Based on location, it makes perfect sense to accommodate our neighbouring detachment and use the facilities here,” Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said. “There’s no changes needed here, just more guests.” Moving prisoners across the Pitt

River may have to happen for three to six months, according to Ridge Meadows RCMP Supt. Dave Walsh. “It’s going to be a bit of a logistics challenge for us,” Walsh told Maple Ridge council last week. Walsh said the detachment is still consulting with the contractor about how long it will take, but the retrofit requires removing load-bearing walls and, essentially, gutting the cells. He said Ridge Meadows RCMP will have to take prisoners to Coquitlam during the renovation period, which “makes sense” because those people facing charges have to be escorted to nearby Port Coquitlam provincial court for initial appearances and bail hearings anyway. Coquitlam’s lockup has 17 cells,

and the number of patrons fluctuates throughout the week. Ridge Meadows estimates it handles between four and five prisoners a day and officers will have to escort prisoners to Coquitlam two or three times in a 12-hour period. Capacity is not an issue in the TriCities, Paquet said. “We already have the cells, the personnel, to do the job so it has very little impact. There will be additional prisoners from time to time, but again we have guards here that are on duty 24 hours a day, so there’s no requirement for additional personnel.” If there ever was a situation where there wasn’t enough room in Coquitlam, local jails have offered to help out, Walsh added.

Police officers will also have to collect fingerprints and photographs taken at Coquitlam cells of the prisoners and would have to be there during hearings with a justice of the peace done over the telephone to determine whether or not the prisoner stays in custody. Paquet said a comprehensive cost formula will be in place as part of a service agreement between the two detachments, to ensure Ridge Meadows will cover any costs associated with its prisoners lodged in the Coquitlam cell block. “We will not be in a situation where our local tax dollars are spent supporting police operations of another

kids forgot all about their entry until a few months back, when they were notified by the training centre that they had been selected among the top three entries in the class category for creativity. “It was just a big activity to help with English, and it turned out we won,” Yam said with a laugh. The classroom entries aren’t necessarily used to name puppies that go on to become RCMP service dogs, and are honoured on their creative and original merits more than anything else. Individual entries were selected to name dogs, and 10 were chosen for the next

generation of RCMP dogs: Cash, Casper, Casey, Cassie, Charlie, Chase, Clay, Coda, Cody and Crosby. Coquitlam RCMP members dropped by the school Thursday to honour Hampton Park’s entries, giving the students a laminated photo of two RCMP puppies, a plush stuffed puppy dog named “Justice” and a certificate recognizing their efforts. “It is always such a treat to be able to publicly recognize the hard work and creativity of our children,” said Cpl. Louis Delisle, who leads the Coquitlam RCMP school liaison program. “To have a local elementary school class being one of only three national winners is something the kids can be extremely proud of.”

design and construction of the Murray-Clarke Connector. We are ready to do our part,” Trasolini said in a press release. “We are, frankly, fed up with ongoing delays and TransLink’s failure to follow through on its commitments.” TransLink spokesperson Ken Hardie confirmed that no money is currently available to build the connector. “Based on our base plan, which is going forward with the funding we have to us right now, we do not have the funding to build the Murray-Clarke Connector or to fund our portion of the Murray-Clarke Connector. We’ve informed the city of that,” Hardie said. “The Murray-Clarke Connector is simply one of a number of things that we’ve wanted to do but have not had the funding to do, simply based on our financial realities.” The base plan priorities are to sustain current services, keep equipment in good repair and to make system improvements when they’re really necessary, Hardie said. “But we don’t have the funding for expan-

sion, and unfortunately the Murray-Clarke Connector falls into the expansion category when it comes time to allocate the budget.” Like the Murray-Clarke Connector, the Evergreen Line is also considered an expansion project. “TransLink is working right now to find ways of funding these things, particularly the Evergreen Line because it is such a high priority. Obviously with the presence of senior government funding, we want to be able to move on that project,” Hardie said. “So that is our focus right now — to find a way to do the Evergreen Line, absolutely.” When it comes to the possibility of a legal battle between TransLink and Port Moody, Hardie remained mum. “If something is going to go through a legal process, we wouldn’t comment on that,” he said. However, Trasolini said the Murray-Clarke Connector remains at a standstill, so the city is seeking legal advice about making a claim against TransLink. “TransLink has left Port Moody with no other choice,” Trasolini said.

Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart shakes hands with Ellick Pau, a warrant officer with the Canadian Forces. Pau returned a City of Coquitlam flag to Stewart Monday, after flying it during a tour of duty in Afghanistan.

Soldier returns Coquitlam flag flown in Kandahar City John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com One flag, two distinctly different worlds. Coquitlam native and Canadian Armed Forces member Warrant Officer Ellick Pau saw his cross-continental flag exchange come full circle this week, as the 42-year-old came home with Coquitlam’s flag after his roughly seven-month tour near Kandahar City, Afghanistan. The city’s flag, which includes imagery highlighting the Fraser and Coquitlam rivers and Maillardville’s French heritage, was sent to Pau last November as part of a flag exchange program linking Canadian troops serving in Afghanistan with their places of residence in Canada. On Monday, Pau returned the flag back to City Hall amidst a procession including members of the Coquitlam Fire and Rescue Services, the Coquitlam RCMP and members of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 263. Pau, in turn, asked for a moment of silence to recognize the death of Sgt. James Macneil — who was killed by an improvised explosive device 20 kilometres southwest of Kandahar on Monday — before presenting the city with a commemorative plaque. “We are proud of your contributions to Canada’s efforts to fight terrorism and help people in a distant land seek

the same foundations in life and freedom that so many of us here in Canada, here in Coquitlam, take for granted,” said Mayor Richard Stewart, who presented Pau with a replacement flag while his fellow councillors and staff gave the Armed Forces member a standing ovation. The flag program started within the last two years out of Camp Nathan Smith, which is home to roughly 500 Canadians with the Kandahar Provincial Reconstruction Team. The team is made up of diplomats, corrections specialists, development

experts, police — including RCMP members — and military personnel who work on any number of projects from training police officers to building schools. Situated in the country’s southern region just outside of Kandahar City, the area is one of the Afghan provinces in greatest need of international support, and is also among those most targeted by insurgents. “Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to fly my home city flag in Kandahar City,” Pau told council. “It made my seven months there … go by faster.”

Opinion

Cuts, pay raise ‘disturbing’ Re: “Trustees vote themselves pay raise,” Friday, June 18. A few hours after School District 43 trustees voted on June 15 at 11 p.m. to give themselves a nine-percent pay increase, the superintendent, the senior manager of human resources and the director of student services requested a meeting with me to discuss the raking back of approximately $45,000 dollars from the account that helps assist the To The most vulnerable of our students. This money has long been set aside to allow teachers up to two release days to prepare individual education plans (IEPs) for students who are identified as dependent handicapped, moderately or severely mentally handicapped, autistic or having severe behaviour. The release days are critical, as they allow teachers some time to adapt curriculum and materials in order for special needs students to thrive in our classrooms and experience successful learning. It is absolutely astounding to me that the managerial and political leaders of this district would even consider removing one of the only resources for spe-

cial needs students that remains in the system after the stripping of contractual provisions that protected special needs students, and after years of ever more pervasive cutbacks to schools and classrooms. However, it is beyond astounding — in fact, it is deeply disturbing — that at the same time as trustees are lining their own pocketbooks, they are looking at further diminishing the meagre pocketbook that supports the students who most need Editor our assistance and care. In my view, trustees have a most difficult job and should be adequately compensated for their efforts. However, they should not be compensated on the backs of vulnerable students. They should also not be conveniently compensated after the district budget has been presented, debated and carried publicly last month, with nary a mention of trustee salary increase or reference to cutting release days dedicated to helping students with special needs.

Our View

Connector, Evergreen both out of reach

T

he City of Port Moody is threatening legal action over TransLink’s failure to build the Murray-Clarke Connector, a project that’s been talked about for more than a quarter of a century. Despite those discussions, as well as numerous pleas from the city to TransLink to start building, the connector is nothing more than a dream at this point. Or perhaps it’s a nightmare, one eerily similar to another proposed Tri-Cities transportation project: the Evergreen Line. In both cases, we have Tri-Cities politicians pleading with TransLink and anyone else who will listen to build the infrastructure they say is desperately needed. In both cases, we have TransLink saying sorry, the money’s just not there. “The Murray-Clarke Connector is simply one of a number of things that we’ve wanted to do but have not had the funding to do, simply based on our financial realities,” TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie said Thursday. He added that TransLink’s proposed 2011 base plan, released earlier this month, focuses on sustaining current services, keeping equipment in good repair and making system improvements when they’re really necessary. “But we don’t have the funding for expansion, and unfortunately the Murray-Clarke Connector falls into the expansion category when it comes time to allocate the budget,” Hardie said. Mayor Joe Trasolini has heard these excuses before, and is not amused. “Council has been very aggressive in advancing the design and construction of the Murray Clarke Connector,” the mayor said in a strongly worded press release. “We are ready to do our part. We are, frankly, fed up with ongoing delays and TransLink’s failure to follow through on its commitments.” Will this lawsuit, if it goes ahead, do anything other than polarize the two sides and cost the city valuable dollars? It’s hard to say, but if the money’s not there, just like with a household budget, it’s not there — whether that’s fair or not. What do you think? Vote in our online poll at www.thenownews.com.

Ottawa is hiring all of B.C.’s 1,200 provincial tax collectors, yet the only thing that will change is instead of calculating the GST at five per cent, they will calculate the HST at 12 per cent. 8. The federal government will take billions from B.C. in additional taxes for goods previously considered a writeoff under PST, which will now become taxable under HST. 9. The HST is more complex. The HST agreement has 16 pages of calculus formulas outlining the revenue sharing with B.C. that will require math geniuses or computers (or both) to figure out. 10. It will destroy B.C.’s sovereignty over provincial taxation. Ottawa will now set the rates, determine our exemptions and will calculate and distribute the revenues to B.C. There isn’t anything in this world that can’t be improved, including our tax system. But the government needs to cancel the HST right now, take a sober second look at it and invite all British Columbians to participate in the debate, and then try again. This time, without a gun to our heads. Chris Delaney Lead Organizer Fight HST Port Coquitlam

Program rewards kids for safe behaviour

Coquitlam children wearing bicycle helmets while riding their bikes, or wearing sunscreen and a hat this summer, could earn themselves a Summer Safety Smart Card that gives them a free McDonald’s ice cream cone. Coquitlam Fire and Rescue is gearing up for the second year of its Summer Safety Smart Card program, which rewards safe behaviour amongst children. The program sees firefighters hand out Smart Cards, redeemable at any of the seven McDonald’s locations in Coquitlam, to kids demonstrating safe behaviour. “This program is a great way for fire department staff to interact and educate children about safety,” Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart said in press release. “By providing children with a reward for safe behaviour, we can help set an example for other children.” Examples of safe behaviour include using crosswalks and waiting for the walk signal, looking both ways before crossing the street and skateboarding in designated areas. The program will run through the Labour Day weekend.

jurisdiction,” Paquet said. “This agreement is an example of the informal service sharing that several police agencies depend on from time to time, for the mutual benefit of the communities involved.” “We’re hopeful [the renovations will be done] in a shorter timeframe because the longer we go the more money it will be and the more time for our officers,” Walsh said. The retrofits are required under federal legislation to ensure safety, including mod-

ernizing cells to protect suicidal or mentally ill prisoners, as well as cell guards. Walsh said the Ridge Meadows cells still have bars on them, which prisoners could use to try and hang themselves. As well, prisoners can reach through the bars to grab guards, or spit or throw bodily fluids at guards. Ridge Meadows won’t have to return the favour to Coquitlam anytime soon, as the Burlington Drive detachment is considerably newer than the building on Haney Place.

Port Moody firefighters were on scene after a Mini Cooper crashed near College Park Drive in Glenayre, taking out a fire hydrant in the process. Police say charges are pending.

Charges pending in Glenayre crash Beauti-Med Simone Blais

sblais@thenownews.com A routine road stop made quite the splash in Glenayre Wednesday afternoon. Just after 2 p.m., a Port Moody police officer saw a 2004 silver Mini Cooper driving erratically up the hill of Clarke Road, and attempted to pull the vehicle over near Glenayre Drive. The vehicle didn’t stop, however, and the officer followed the car a short distance, watching as it hit a lamp standard

and then a water hydrant — causing water to gush out and the Mini Cooper to flip over onto its roof. The driver allegedly got out of the car and took off on foot, but was arrested a short while later by the officer. Const. Bill Kim said the man is known to police, and the 41-year-old Coquitlam resident had an outstanding warrant on an unrelated matter. Kim said several charges would be laid against the man pertaining to the accident. Three other individuals were in the Mini Cooper at the time of the crash: a

male passenger in the front seat and two females in the backseat. Some suffered fractured bones in the crash, and were taken to Royal Columbian Hospital for treatment. All three were released shortly after. Port Moody’s major crime section and forensic unit remained on scene for a while after to gather evidence and witness statements. Kim said the accident is an active investigation, and anyone with information is asked to call 604-461-3456 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

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.

Grade 6 and 7 students at Moody Middle volunteered their time in the community and raised more than $3,000 for local charities for a global citizenship project. In their social studies curriculum, they learned about topics including global trade,

child labour, poverty and other world issues. The 60 students aimed to make a difference by thinking globally but acting locally. Students in the two classes planned projects individually or in pairs over a six-week period, complete with presentations, photos and poster boards. Through various fundraising efforts, students donated 313 pounds of food and $170 to SHARE’s food bank. They also gave a total of $1,370.26 to the SPCA, $330 to the Coquitlam Animal Shelter, $133.76 to Right to Play, $102.30 to the Wanted Children Foundation, $537.30 to the BC Children’s Hospital, $140 to the Salvation Army, $116 to the BC Professional Firefighters Burn Fund, $177.96 to the World Wildlife Foundation and $45 to the Jumpstart Program. A pair of students also donated $165 to Gifts of Hope for school supplies, clean water and a girls’ washroom in Sierra Leone. Students also collected clothing and sporting equipment to donate to various organizations. Others volunteered their time by picking up litter, mowing lawns, washing cars, potting plants and helping with septic field work. As well, students promoted reading at elementary schools and volunteered at arts venues. “It is truly phenomenal what the results end up being,” said teacher Barb Buczewski in an e-mail. “It is not just about raising money but about making a difference — volunteering, cleaning a beach or park, the sky is the limit.”

the students learned about the importance of community service. The K of C challenged the kids to volunteer more than the minimum requirement of 20 hours. To achieve this goal, some students completed volunteer work at the Paralympic opening ceremonies, the Olympic

closing ceremonies, as well as Port Coquitlam events like parades, the show and shine and the Terry Fox Hometown Run. Others helped out in their church and through community programs like the Special Olympic bowlers and the Adopt a Trail program.

Volunteers give extra effort

The Knights of Columbus recently recognized Grade 7 students from various Tri-Cities schools for outstanding levels of community service over the past school year. Recipients were Samantha Van Emmerik, Maranda Reyes, Celine Haire, Sonia Ardita, Jose Lopez, Marisa Gagne and Sam Stouten. As part of their confirmation preparation,

Happy

CANADA DAY!

Face painting is a mainstay during Canada Day celebrations in the TriCities, and the booths typically end up with lineups of kids looking to show off their national pride

Entertainment gets in the national spirit during Golden Spike Days in 2009.

Get your red on, Canada! W

ho needs the Olympics for the chance to show off their national pride? Canadians from coast to coast will don red next Thursday, to mark the country’s 143rd birthday on July 1. And Tri-Cities residents have plenty of opportunities to show off their Canuck pride. City of Port Coquitlam marks Canada Day with a fishing derby and pancake breakfast in Lions Park from 8 to 11:30 a.m., followed by festivities in Castle Park starting at noon. The city’s tradition is to mark the day with opening ceremonies and a Canada Day cake, which will be officially cut shortly after noon. Plenty of family activities are offered in the park leading up to the popular fireworks display, set to begin after dusk. For information, visit the city’s website at www.city. port-coquitlam.bc.ca.

TRI-CITIES AUTOMOTIVE

GUIDE

Good value can, in fact, come inside smaller packages takes up a chunk (14 litres) of cargo space. Mitsubishi vehicles are backed by a very impressive warranty. Complete bumper-to-bumper coverage is for five years or 100,000 kilometres, body corrosion coverage is for seven years or 160,000 km and powertrain components are covered for 10 years or 160,000 km.

David Chao and Bob McHugh editorial@thenownews.com Mitsubishi is relatively new to Canada as a stand-alone company and so far it hasn’t been able to attract westerners in the same way that residents of la belle province have taken to cars like the Lancer. Compacts are very popular in Quebec and it’s easy to see why Quebecers are smitten with the Lancer. About the same price as Canada’s best-selling car, the Honda Civic, the Lancer is a little bigger, has a larger, more powerful engine and it comes with a longer warranty. The star of the Mitsubishi product line, the Lancer is available in a wide range of models, from inexpensive to high performance. There’s even a wild over $50,000 Evolution, or Evo edition, which is essentially a roadgoing version of the very successful Mitsubishi rally car. Lancer received its last generational redesign for the 2008 model year. It was a wheels-up remake with an all new body, interior and mechanicals. Changes for the 2010 model year, in contrast, are relatively minor and essentially cosmetic with the exception of a new standard stability control system. Externally the changes include a redesigned side air dam, a short-pole roof-mounted antenna and what’s called an “intelligent” washer. On

The Look

Drivers in Quebec have fallen in love with the Mitsubishi Lancer for its economical offerings. the inside, its instrument panel gauge is redesigned and the door finish has been improved. Lancer comes in two body styles, sedan and sportback. The DX sedan starts at $16,998 and comes in SE, GTS and Ralliart trim levels. The sportback GTS is $24,098 and sport-

back Ralliart is $33,998. Under the hood, the base engine is a double-overhead cam, 16-valve, two-litre that can produce 152 hp at 6,000 r.p.m. and 146 lb-ft of torque at 4,250 r.p.m. The GTS and Ralliart editions come with a 2.4-litre engine that can produce 168 hp at 6,000

r.p.m. and 167 lb-ft torque at 4,100 r.p.m. Our test Lancer was an SE trim with a five-speed manual transmission and it also came with a highend Rockford-Fosgate audio system. The system includes a big trunkmounted 10-inch sub-woofer that

An appealing styling feature of the Lancer is its “shark attack” snout, plus it has a dramatic wedge-like side profile. The headlights have a menacing pinched appearance and the blacked-out air intakes are fighterplane inspired. The Mitsubishi is, of course, also a famous Japanese aircraft manufacturer with a long history that includes production of the Zero fighter plane used in the Second World War. And it also explains Mitsubishi’s aircraft-propellerinspired logo. Longer and wider than a Honda Civic, Lancer is built of a rigid unibody body structure with ultra highstrength steel sections. The GTS edition is very easy to spot with its big (over the top) rear deck lid spoiler.

suited to bigger than average occupants. While there’s excellent adjustment on the driver’s seat, having attained a comfortable leg and pedal position, I found myself having to reach a bit more than I prefer for the steering wheel and gear shift lever. The front seats are comfortable, but don’t offer as much support as popular competitors like the Civic or Madza3. The driver’s seat, however, did come with a manual cushionheight adjuster, which helped to some degree to compensate for its lack of a telescopic steering column. Lancer provides 2,684 litres (94.8 cubic feet) of space for its passengers and definitely has more rear seat room than most in this class. A climate-control air-conditioning system is standard with GTS. A manual system air comes with the SE trim and it’s an option on DE.

Safety

As already mentioned, Lancer’s safety package now includes what Mitsubishi describes as an active stability control system (ASC), which is a terrific standard feature in this market segment. The body is built on what Mitsubishi describes as a reinforced impact safety evolution (RISE) unibody platform. The RISE body structure enhances occupant protection by dispersing energy loads during side and rear crashes and helps protect the fuel system during a rear impact. On top of that, occupants are protected by

seven standard airbags, instead of the usual six. An additional driver’s knee airbag helps reduce lower-body injuries and better positions the driver in a frontal impact.

The Drive

As already mentioned, my extra long legs put me further away from the steering wheel and required an extra stretch to the shift lever. Yet, the more I drove the Lancer, the less I noticed this relatively minor inconvenience. Fuel economy is comparable with sportier versions of the Civic or the Mazda3, and the Lancer runs on regular fuel. That said, most competitors in this segment offer smaller capacity base engines that offer better fuel economy. Although Lancer had a tight turn circle, the straight-line feel is surprisingly vague, as I expected better and quicker response given its sporty aspirations. A base Civic or Mazda3 would beat it for overall steering feel and straight-line stability. The five-speed manual transmission in my test Lancer was easy to navigate and engagements were crisp. It’s a nice match with the smooth two-litre engine and the optional automatic is high-efficiency CVT type that actually offers better fuel economy.

The Score

Aggressively styled, priced and well-backed, the Mitsubishi Lancer is a roomy compact that offers good value for the money — just ask a Quebecer.

Something with a three-car garage. RAY: Right. And you’ll want to do some of the light maintenance yourself. That’ll require a Sears 759-piece tool kit with a rolling steel cabinet. And don’t forget the air compressor. TOM: Of course, you’ll need to install a hydraulic lift. That may require a little renovation of the garage to give you the required head room.

TOM: And maybe a second guest house for his nurse. And don’t forget to equip the mechanic’s house with a wheelchair ramp, a Stannah Stairlift and a portable defibrillator. RAY: But that’s all small potatoes compared to the pleasure you’ll derive from having your grandmother’s car back in the family. Don’t let it get away this time, Dave. TOM: Right. I once owned a ’65 AMC Ambassador that I loved. I let it go. A few years later, I tried to get it back, but it was too late. RAY: Right. My brother didn’t care for his cars the same way your grandmother did, Dave.

Looking to life with the low seam ball?

The B.C. Premier Baseball League looks to level the playing field Michael Booth and John Kurucz sports@thenownews.com

I

t’ll be a whole new ball game for the players in the B.C. Premier Baseball League this weekend. In an effort to give the batters a break from a surge in pitching performance, the BCPBL will use special low-seam baseballs for some games this weekend. “I’m not that excited about it, but I’m not a pitcher — they’re the ones who will really notice the difference,” said Coquitlam Reds manager Kyle Williams. “If it actually increases scoring, I think that would be a positive because I think our league is overly dominated by pitchers right now and the low seam baseball is supposed to be harder to throw a curveball with.” Every team will use the balls in one weekend set of games. Coquitlam will be using them when the club travels to North Delta Sunday (noon and 2:30 p.m. start times). After the last out has been recorded, the clubs will send reports to the league with their assessment of the way the streamlined balls performed. “I have a hard time telling the difference between the two, but then again, I’m not a pitcher,” said North Delta Blue Jays general manager Bob Burkmar, as he examined examples of both the old and new baseballs Wednesday. “I can feel a little bit of a difference on my fingertips but I don’t know … if a young pitcher would notice. It feels like there’s a flatter surface where the seams are so I guess that would be a factor in how a pitcher grips the ball. It will probably affect the curves and sliders — the stuff that makes the ball move when it’s pitched.” The BCPBL has a history of taking an innovative approach to the game. Several years ago the league banned metal and composite bats and now

North Delta Blue Jays general manager Bob Burkmar checks out baseballs approved for use by the BCPBL, which will debut at a doubleheader North Delta on Sunday. The new low-seam baseball is on the left, and it’s apparently designed to give hitter’s an edge. the league stands out as one of only a few junior loops in North America using wooden bats exclusively. Of course, the wooden bats may be one of the biggest reasons pitchers have dominated hitters in recent years. So in a way, the new balls can be seen as hindering pitchers to make up for the way hitters have been hindered by wooden bats. Mechanics and trajectory aside, one of the biggest differ-

ences between the balls is the price. Williams said 12 standard league balls cost $55, versus the roughly $30 price tag associated with a dozen low-seam baseballs. Though the BCPBL is subsidizing this weekend’s experiment, normally, the cost of balls falls on each club. “I think the purpose of this is to prove that the game won’t be destroyed with these low seam baseballs,” Williams said.

“If the weekend happens and there aren’t huge problems with it, we’ll probably see it in the league next year. Everyone’s got their own perspective: some people don’t care, some people are all about the money ... As a program, I think we’re pretty neutral on it.” Williams said up until now, his players knew nothing of the proposed switch. In fact, he doesn’t even plan on telling his players about the

new baseballs, instead preferring them to make up their own minds about the move. “We’ll just go out there and play. I may not even tell them we’re playing with low seam baseballs on Sunday or at all. That way, they can go out there and see if they even notice it — that might the best way to approach it.” The Reds took on the Langley Blaze Thursday after NOW deadlines.

Selects named for U.S. jaunt

I GOT YOUR BACK: Port Coquitlam native Jamall Lee gets ready for a block in the B.C. Lions’ June 20 contest versus the Edmonton Eskimos. The Lions lost 36-32, though Lee picked up a 95-yard reception off a Casey Printers throw.

It’s going to be a jampacked summer for 10 TriCities lacrosse players. The Burnaby Mountain Selects announced the 2010 summer rosters and a busy schedule for the coming months. In the program’s seventh season, it has built up a stellar reputation as a terrific player development source and an excellent academic scouting tool. The 2010 elite touring teams — which cover four different divisions — are aiming to keep that ball rolling. Making the grade this year on the under-13 squad are Anmore midfielder Dylan Kaminski and goalie Gordy Bowden of Coquitlam. The sophomore squad (1995 birth dates) features PoCo attacker Kyran Clarke, goalie Grayson Greer, midfielder Ty Klarner and defender Quinton Pavan. Port Moody’s Taylor

Join and get up to

Stuart and Coquitlam’s Alex Thomson, both midfielders, are the lone junior (1994) team representatives, while the senior squad (1992-93) features PoCo defender Mitch Cavallarin and netminder Mitch Klarner. With instruction from Simon Fraser University men’s lacrosse coaches Jeff Cathrea and Brent Hoskins, the program will see 66 student/athletes attend and compete in high-calibre tournaments in Colorado, Massachusetts and Maryland. Athletes will also visit such famed campuses as Harvard, the University of Denver, John Hopkins University and the University of Maryland. First launched in 2006, the program is designed to provide skilled athletes with elite competition and training opportunities while preparing them for possible collegiate lacrosse careers in Canada, the U.S. or further abroad.

A’s topple New West It was the kind of contest where the final score was only part of the storyline. The Coquitlam junior Adanacs downed the previously undefeated New Westminster Salmonbellies 11-6 Wednesday in a game that had its share of chippiness, momentum swings and playoff implications. In a game marked by two fights late in the third, the Adanacs moved atop the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League thanks to two-goal efforts from Tor Reinholdt, Ben McIntosh, Matthew Dinsdale and Ontario import Mark Matthews. “We executed on our opportunities in the first, but started to fade away from our game plan in the second and the third,” said Adanacs coach Curt Malawsky. David Joyce, Simon Giourmetakis and Michael Krgovich rounded out Coquitlam’s offence, while netminder Dan Lewis made 31 saves. Momentum was on the side of the first-place A’s from the get-go, as McIntosh staked the home team to a 1-0 lead on the first shot of the game just 14 seconds into the contest. Reinholdt and Matthews made it 3-0 on consecutive tallies 20 seconds apart before New West could counter with the 3-1 goal at 14:13. Up 5-1 after one period, the Adanacs outscored New West 4-3 in the second before both teams traded a pair in the third period. Two different fights broke out with the game all but decided in the closing minute, as Coquitlam combatants Matt Beers and Kevin Neufeld paired up with Travis Irving and Bobby Danilkiewicz respectively. “I can’t control what [New West] is going to do out there, but when they send their two tough guys out there, we have to defend ourselves,” Malawsky said of the lategame dust-ups. “I’m not a big [proponent] of fighting, I’d rather see the game end in a respectful way.” With Wednesday’s win, Coquitlam gained a one-point edge over New West to move to top spot in the league with a 15-1-1 record. Wednesday’s win also served as means to dampen the one blemish on Coquitlam’s record this season, a 9-8 road loss to New West on June 1. The teams meet again one more time this season — a July 7 contest that will close out the regular season at home for the Adanacs. Coquitlam entered the contest after having downed the Victoria Shamrocks 12-9 last Saturday. In that game, Matthews and Travis Cornwall each netted hat tricks, while Robert Church and McIntosh notched a pair. Colton Dow and Ryan Johnson rounded out the offence with singles.

Douglas College enlists two new head coaches

Douglas College announced the addition of two new coaches Thursday, with Cavanagh Whitely taking over the reins of the men’s baseball program and Clayton Pottinger heading up the men’s basketball program. A native of Prince George, Whitely comes to Douglas by way of UBC, where he spent the last 10

years in various coaching capacities. For the last seven years, he served as the team’s specialist in charge of the infield, offensive systems development and the mental skills training program. “Our goal here will be to develop student-athletes to meet their potential on and off the field, and allow them to move on to good four-year programs or

even to the professional ranks,” Whitely said. Pottinger, on the other hand, joins the Douglas ranks after coaching stints at Kings University College of Alberta and the University of Alberta. “I will spend the summer recruiting and scouting players to ensure that Douglas College is competitive this year,” he said.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Aries March 21 - April 19: Be ambitious Sunday. Information is coming (or being suppressed) from places it usually doesn’t. Friendships and optimism perk you up Monday to Wednesday – this relieves the general sluggishness you’re steeped in. (It’s a good sluggishness; you’re in a month-long natural hibernation cycle, designed to heal some overstrained parts of your health/emotions.) Use these three days to view the future, and make subsequent decisions about who/what to nurture, and who/what to chuck in your life. Rest, retreat Thursday/Friday. Don’t butt your head against an invisible brick wall Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high. Start important projects, seek favours, make personal appearances. (E.g., if seeking a job, show at the door, or phone, rather than sending a resume.) Your communications skills are sharp and career-oriented right now. Your money picture remains good. You could purchase a small luxury item. This influence helps career, too – angle for a pay raise. Sunday’s for relationships. Life’s deeper side rises to the surface Monday to Wednesday: research, invest, commit to a lifestyle change, become intimate – all’s good. Gentle joy Thursday.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: My superficial advice is: be ambitious this week and the next few; it’s your time to strike. However, a “karmic hangover” affects this area through July 3. You might be wise to wait until Saturday onward to act. A different approach, situation, idea, project, might arrive July 3 onward, while those that draw you prior to this day might be subtle traps, involve suspect motives, or simply promise more than they will deliver. (Remember, through March 5, 2011 don’t push higher-ups, bosses, judges, etc.) Rely on your “inner antennae” more than my advice. Romantic vibes Monday to Wednesday!

Taurus April 20-May 20: The accent lies on communications,travel,siblings,casualacquaintances. You’re busy, but the stakes aren’t high, and you handle everything easily. One pretty important communication might exist early week – perhaps having a legal or love import. Sunday’s mellow, compassionate, good for gentle love, intellectual friends or foreign culture. Be ambitious Monday to Wednesday – all’s good! Friends, flirtations, optimism, happiness brighten Wednesday night to Thursday/Friday. But retreat Saturday – nothing good will come of certain associates, gossip, etc. Read an atlas!

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Rest, lie low, contemplate, plan your future. Be charitable, seek spiritual regeneration. Deal with governments, institutions, head offices, and “red tape.” Tackle a few chores Sunday. Early week might bring a few secrets, or an interesting nugget of information in a book, newspaper, etc. Relationships come front and centre Monday to Wednesday — be diplomatic, your position is not strong. Life’s secret ways open up Wednesday eve to Friday: investments, debt, sexual urges, research, dreams. Your hunches are accurate, results good. Don’t express your opinion Saturday, despite enthusiasm.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: An intellectual, legal, cultural, educational, publishing, far travel and gentle love trend floats into your life through the weeks ahead. Delay real action in any of these spheres until July 4 onward – subtle “wrong doorways” exist. Still, you’ll be happy, you’ll enjoy the mellow affection of this week! Sunday’s for talk, travel, news. You might learn something significant early week – a tidbit in talk, or a way of looking – that changes your outlook, philosophy. Rest Monday-Wednesday. This last night to Friday bring romance, creative and pleasure urges – all fine! Caution Saturday.

Gemini May 21-June 20: This week and the next few emphasize money, earnings, the price of things, possessions, memory, rote learning and, possibly, a sensual interlude. Early week, you might sense/know that these things are either tied to, or oppose, their deeper side (investments,family finances,inheritance, deeply consequential sex, etc.) For example, the amount you can invest is tied to earnings. In general (except Sunday) it’s better to focus on the light side, earnings, light sex, etc. Intellectual success, gentle love hover Monday-Wednesday. Be ambitious Thursday (very!) and Friday. Saturday’s hopeful.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: You will enjoy this week and the next few – friends, popularity, optimism, entertainment, light romance and happiness buoy your days! Your sexual magnetism intensifies through July. (Already has, since June 6.) Your determination grows to cause some significant change in your life. This would be very natural – go ahead. Sunday’s romantic, creative – seek pleasure. Tackle chores Monday to Wednesday; you’ll accomplish them. Relationship excitement enters Wednesday night to Friday. Be diplomatic – but eager! Caution Saturday: an attraction, financial situation, has problems.

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: This week and the next few, the accent lies on life changes, sexual urges, investments and debt, secrets, research, dreams. Your subconscious rises to the surface. Hunches are accurate. But don’t act on any of these in a major way before July 4 – especially be careful with finances and intimate commitments. Before then, a subtle trap exists which you might not “wake to” for months, years. Spend – carefully – Sunday. Friends, talk, errands Monday to Wednesday. Secrets, data, are everywhere! Home draws, and is a good place, Thursday/Friday. Romance needs caution Saturday.

June 27 - July 3 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Although relationships fill the weeks ahead, and will generally be fruitful, productive and pleasing, be cautious about forming long-standing, consequential links. That applies to March 5, 2011, but especially this week. Early week, you might meet a talkative person, perhaps someone who could/would be a mate or an employee or coworker. You might be “signing on” for a situation that turns dull, draws you into wrong choices, or simply doesn’t fulfil its promise. All June/July, avoid a lawsuit, especially over property or children. Chase money Monday-Wednesday. Make friends Thursday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Tackle chores all week, and to late July. (Well, maybe take a rest Sunday — and don’t tackle anything frenetically Saturday, July 3.) You’ll get a lot done, which will free you for the opportunities of August. Make sure you focus your efforts on the right tasks – tackle what’s outstanding, but don’t create new work projects. Your energy and effectiveness rises nicely Monday to Wednesday — wink at someone! Chase money or shop Thursday (better) and Friday. Friends don’t tell all Saturday. Your sexual magnetism is high all June/July – interesting “situations” arise. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: This week offers romance, pleasure, creative surges, passion about anything, charming kids, nature’s beauty – enjoy these, but don’t let them lead you into major lifeaffecting actions (especially this week, but generally to March, 2011). However, a subtle trap might lurk. E.g., romance could lead to a love affair that turns your life in the wrong direction. Sunday’s for fun, though it might turn profound if you meet a Virgo. Depths, mysteries, investments/debt, life changes Monday-Wednesday – dive in, all’s fine. Your energy, charisma soar Thursday/Friday – impress someone! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
