Public pans Mundy Park plan

In THE NOW News:

Friday, August 27, 2010

Online survey finds 91 per cent of residents opposed to tree-top playground Stories by John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com The first round of public opinion seems to have recorded a first-round knockout. The City of Coquitlam ended its first instalment of public feedback on the proposed forest adventure playground plan for Mundy Park on Thursday, and the overwhelming majority of those who responded have panned the plan. The first question posed on the city’s online discussion forum asked residents whether they supported the playground in Mundy Park, and 156 respondents, or 91 per cent, were opposed. The second question asked residents if they supported the concept, regardless of location, and 145 respondents (87 per cent) registered opposition.

“I’m not surprised,” Mayor Richard Stewart said in an interview Thursday. “The purpose of public consultation is to find out what they think, and I think we’ve got a pretty strong impression.” First presented to the city’s recreation, sports and culture committee on July 26, a staff report notes the tree-top playground would allow participants to move through a five-acre parcel of Mundy Park via walkways, ladders, swings and zip-lines. The park would be run by a private company that would build and operate the playground, while paying the city to use the land. The report suggests that no damage would be done to trees in the park. Staff did examine other locations around the city as well — Eagle Ridge, Blue Mountain, Coquitlam River, Glen and Town Centre parks — though a

spot east of Spani Pool was deemed the most suitable due to its access to existing parking and walkways, close proximity to utilities and its distance away from residential properties. Lori MacKay, Coquitlam’s general manager of parks, recreation and culture, told The NOW in an e-mail that parks staff is now tabulating the results of the feedback process and will report those results to the city’s sports, recreation and culture committee next month. “Public engagement is an important part of the way the city undertakes its work. That is why the direction from council was specifically to consult with the public on the idea of a forest adventure playground at this early stage. At the same time, the city was interested in exploring if there are potential operators who would wish to establish such a service in the city

and what proposals they could present. That is why a [request for proposals] was issued. The results from these processes will inform any future directions which could include a wide range of options,” MacKay said. To that end, Stewart said it’s likely that council will abandon plans for the Mundy Park location and instruct staff to look at other possible locations within the city. If and when those alternatives are explored, he expects another round of public consultation to ensue. “It’s quite clear that the majority of those who responded have strongly held opinions against having it in the park, and it’s an opinion I share,” he said. “Right now, my preference is to look at other locations and do another round of public consultation about that and find out where in fact this might work.”

Ban on MMA could push sport underground: Asmundson  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

address amateur fights, which in Coquitlam aren’t subject to the same stringent rules as pro fights. When a pro fight takes place, the city lays the groundwork in terms of criminal record checks, medical personnel, issues around policing, liability and compensation. Because there is no standardized MMA governing body in Canada, amateur fights in Coquitlam can go ahead whether the city likes it not. That very scenario took place in late April, when the city played host to its first ever MMA event at the Red

Robinson Theatre. “It’s very disappointing that those things can happen,” Asmundson. “The only things we can do is make the authorities aware that there’s an amateur event, and if they see that there’s wrongdoing, they can prosecute them under the law.” Taking away pro fights, while lacking a governing body for amateur fights, could drive the sport underground and leave participants at a higher risk for injury. “It’s going on out there. There’s underground MMA happening where there’s no ambulances, no doctors and these guys are going to end up with serious injuries. That

On Aug. 26, 2009, a 32-year-old mother and her toddler were hit by a flatbed truck while crossing at the intersection of Abbott Street and Expo Boulevard in Vancouver. At around noon, the mother was pushing her child in a stroller across the intersection when they were struck by a truck making a right turn. The child died at the scene and the mother was taken to hospital with serious injuries. “The family was so devastated,” Vancouver police Const. Jana

McGuinness said. “I suspect this is a very difficult time for them at the one-year anniversary.” A heightened awareness is needed on city streets, McGuinness added. “I think what’s important is that we all need to learn from a tragedy like this and we need to be aware of each other on the roadway,” she said. “Both drivers and pedestrians need to be aware of each other. … Heightened awareness is the first step in ensuring tragedies like this don’t happen again in the future.”

Opinion

Next generation looking to clean energy for jobs Jobs, jobs, jobs. They’re a big topic of conversation for any young person heading into their 20s. That’s why it’s a relief to see the B.C. economy showing such strong signs of emerging from the global recession, and relatively unscathed compared to some economies. Key economic indicators in mining, forestry and construction have all been up, which is great news for anyone starting out on their life’s career. Considering To The the fact that natural resources are the backbone of the B.C. economy, the eyes of many young British Columbians like myself are trained on B.C.’s emerging clean energy sector and the potential B.C. has for supplying renewable green energy. After all, ours is the generation that will feel the brunt of climate change. So not only do we want to build strong, successful lives and careers in this province, we also want to be part of solving the

world’s energy problems. No other place in North America has the green energy potential B.C. has. It’s the place to be, and developing the province’s green energy resources means jobs for thousands of young people like myself. Developing a variety of associated green energy technologies, and attracting new industries that need the kind of clean energy B.C. can provide, will mean Editor even more jobs for my generation. The world is a very different place from what it was before the global recession. It’s a world with an eye to cleaning up the global energy supply and making it sustainable and renewable. I feel fortunate to be part of the exciting future B.C. has in store for my generation and for the generations that follow. Donald Leung Burnaby

Our View

Government rolls the dice yet again There are thousands of problem gamblers in B.C., but one in particular rarely loses. That’s the provincial government, which relaunched its revamped online gambling website — www.playnow.com — this week after it was shut down last month over security concerns. The province has defended its foray into the industry by arguing that people will spend the money anyway; at least this way, the money will stay in B.C. to fund needed social services. Gambling already earns the provincial government more than $1 billion annually. With the expanded site and the weekly limit now at $10,000, that figure will likely swell. But while that windfall may be helpful, the government must ensure that it is not creating a larger problem. Victoria spends just $4.6 million per year on its responsible gambling strategy and the problem gambling program, having slashed funding from $7 million in 2009. The support programs that are offered — such as a 24-hour help line, counselling and the www.bcresponsiblegambling.ca website — are maddeningly ineffective. The province’s self-exclusion program is intended to prevent gaming addicts from entering casinos, but many find they can do so without so much as a peep from security. If Victoria plans to balance the budget on the backs of problem gamblers, the least they can do is get serious about tackling the problem they are helping to support. That starts with restoring funding and creating programs that are truly effective. There is no sense in spending much-needed funding on a support network that leads only to frustration. At the very least, set guidelines and stringent protocols should be implemented surrounding the self-exclusion program. When an addict admits they have a problem, casino staff should be able to engage an effective system to help those individuals who have expressed the desire for that help. This is one game in which the house holds all the cards. Let’s hope those cards get played for the benefit of all British Columbians — not just government coffers.

My View

Once an evaluation has been made and repairs identified, seniors or their family should contact Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. to enquire about the home adaptations for seniors’ independence program, which provides forgivable loans to seniors who qualify. This can help offset some of the expense, but costs can quickly add up. Seniors can also defer paying their property taxes, which can free up several thousand dollars each year in cash flow, or use a reverse mortgage to free up equity frozen in the value of the property. When deciding if an elderly relative should remain in their home, there are many things to consider, and no two situations are the same. If the decision is made to keep an individual in their home, their physical ability and health status should be monitored as they can change quickly, and what works today might not work in the future. No matter how safe and elder friendly the home is made, at some point the medical and social needs of the person may outweigh any benefits to aging in place. John Kurvink is a chartered accountant and has his master’s degree in health administration. He is the CEO of Chantelle Management Ltd., which owns and operates seniors’ complexes.

Still need to protect city’s urban forest Regarding the proposal to put a tree-top adventure area in Mundy Park, when I saw the information about this proposal in the local paper, my first thought was “Oh no. Not again!” As a 40-year resident of the Coquitlam area near the park, I know first-hand this is now the third proposal by private interests to develop Mundy Park. The first one, in 1972, was that the whole park become a golf course. Substantial public protest stopped this. The same thing occurred with the second golf course proposal of more recent date, and it was generally understood that the designation of “urban forest” would offer protection. And now this. Parks need to be available to all the citizens and taxpayers of the municipality. We pay taxes towards them. Parks are critically needed quiet green spaces for passive recreation by old and young walking, with or without dogs, jogging, watching wildlife, cycling and exploring nature with children. Five hectares is a large area to remove essentially from public access unless one can cough up $40 or more for a family excursion. What happens to the walkways and zip-lines at night? Will security be needed? Will the equipment

be removed in winter? What about noise (people scream quite loudly on zip-lines) and garbage produced? What about safety underneath the walkways or will the area be fenced off? What about liability? The idea of a forest canopy walkway is a good one. There is one in the UBC botanical To The garden, but that is not a public park already heavily used. Adding 35,000 to 40,000 more people? Where will they park? Use the bathroom? Any existing green space will be totally destroyed, to say nothing of the loss of areas for wildlife that currently exist in the park. Please, if you have to do this, find land somewhere other than in our valuable parks — and ensure sufficient time for adequate public input when most residents are not on holidays.

Park, nor am I in any way connected to it. That said, I don’t find it the least bit surprising that the very people who are opposing the adventure playground in one small part of Mundy Park are the same people who enjoy or use Mundy Park on a regular basis. I remember a few years back, people Editor on the North Shore camped out to prevent the Sea-to-Sky expansion under the guise of “natural protection,” which is the same argument used here. It turns out that most of the campers were rich folks, upset that their elite, expensive and fancy communities would be disturbed by the noise of the highway and potential increase in the commuters passing through their paradise on the bay, reserved only for super-rich eco-types wearing MEC Gortex. The argument about Mundy Park is the same: it is about elitism and taking ownership of something that belongs to all of us, so that only a few of us could enjoy it. Just think how many more people would get to enjoy Mundy Park if this adventure playground were built. Young people don’t go to the park — they found parks boring. This would not only make the park cool and exciting, but would provide summer and seasonal employ-

ment opportunities, and the city could collect extra property taxes, which is good for all of us. Countless people would come to Coquitlam to see and walk the course, drawn to the idea of exploring the park below the tree canopy. But that’s exactly the problem, isn’t it? It would bring more people. The people who enjoy the park right now don’t want more people; they want to keep the status quo so only they can enjoy their dog walks or runs, feed the ducks and don their wooshy $700 Gortex jackets. Welcome to the 21st century of eco-green-elitism, where the rich and privileged make nature as inaccessible to most people as possible so select few can enjoy it. Additionally, this park is simply unsafe. Any park so wild that it houses a population of bears is inappropriate for an urban setting. The total wilderness of this park will one day result in a huge fire which will burn the whole park down — the underbrush needs to be cleared out to prevent this from happening. I think encouraging more visitors to the park should be much more of a priority than keeping the total wilderness of the park so three Olympic runners can enjoy their Saturday morning jog.

Poopalapillai said refugees often end up becoming productive members of Canadian society. Many members of the Canada’s existing Tamil community have launched successful careers and employ numerous workers, he added. But he also acknowledged some people hold the opposite perspective about the hundreds of recent migrants and believe they are a burden. “These are new people to Canada. They’re totally new. They need some help. They need some real help to put their lives back into normalcy in this country,” he said. “In that context, any help from any church or any group is most welcome. That would help them to smoothen the process to integrate into this society.” To Simon Fraser University history professor Andre Gerolymatos, there are no risks associated with the churches’ initiative. “I think it’s a really good

Port Moody pressing for third station Port Moody is unhappy that a third Evergreen Line rapidtransit station serving the western portion of the community is no longer part of the $1.4-billion project. Public comment closes Sunday on the environmental assessment of the connection between Coquitlam City Centre and Lougheed Town Centre, and thus to the Millennium Line SkyTrain. But that assessment doesn’t include a Queens Street station that was part of the plan for rapid transit in the region that dates back to when the line was going to be light-rail transit. Port Moody Mayor Joe Trasolini called a special meeting of council for Thursday afternoon to give his city’s reaction to the assessment. Results of the meeting happened after NOW deadlines. “It’s not a third station,”

construction is supposed to start in 2011 and be complete in 2014, TransLink still hasn’t found its $400-million share of the project. The funding shortfall doesn’t faze Duncan. He said the request for qualifications to bid on the design-buildfinance project closes Sept. 7, after which a short list of three bidders will be chosen. “The province is fully committed to the Evergreen Line moving forward,” said Duncan. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, chair of Metro Vancouver’s Mayor’s Council on transportation, said a solution is close. “Before the end of this year, we’ll have a resolution to both the Evergreen Line and, as I said, just as importantly, the issue of long-term funding,” said Fassbender. The Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce, which represents Port Moody, Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam, just wants the line built. Stephanie Booth, chair of

the chamber’s board of directors, pointed out that while Port Moody wants another station, so does Coquitlam (Lincoln Avenue). Port Coquitlam doesn’t even get a station. So Booth isn’t picking sides in the controversy. “As long as it doesn’t disrupt building the Evergreen Line, we support all of them,” said Booth. But rapid transit is a priority for the traffic-choked northeast sector. “Bring it here, we’re on it,” said Booth. — Postmedia Network

Lynch had already cancelled. “It was the inconvenience, the stress that got to me,” she said. “My feeling is that it’s happening a lot and I think the public should be aware.” Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said shoppers should not leave purses or wallets unattended for even a second because that’s when opportunistic theft happens. Instead, he recommends that customers carry keys and wallets in their pockets. “Theft is usually a non-violent crime of opportunity and its prevention starts with everyone,” Paquet said. “Most victims of theft will admit not keeping an eye on their wallet or purse for a moment, or leaving a door or window open.” Paquet also warns people not to leave purses or valuables in their cars.

Stolen purse only took seconds OPEN

It only takes a second. Maria Lynch learned this lesson last week when her purse was stolen from her cart at a Coquitlam grocery store. “It happened so fast. I don’t know how it happened, but I know someone was following me because it happened so fast,” said Lynch, a Port Moody resident. “I was in the meat department and I had my purse with me. I set it on my shopping cart and when I turned around to put the meat in my cart, my purse was gone.” She alerted store staff, filed a police report and stood near the store exit for two hours hoping to spot the thief with her purse. Lynch went home empty handed, but the next day she called the store and discovered her purse had been found. However, the thief had pocketed $250 in grocery money plus several credit cards, which

Trasolini said. “It’s been there from Day 1.” Evergreen Line project manager Dave Duncan, who said a third station could cost about $20 million, indicated the station can still be part of the plan. “I think the first step is for the city to look at the area and see whether they have an interest in making a significant density increase,” said Duncan. Trasolini doesn’t think that kind of density is realistic. “The population of Port Moody would have to grow by 50 per cent (from the current 32,000 to 48,000) in order to generate development cost charges of $20 million,” he said. The technology being used for the line was switched from LRT to SkyTrain after a business-case analysis in 2008, shortly before the province took over from TransLink as lead agency on the Evergreen Line. And although a project office is open in Coquitlam,

Treefest features discussion panel Many people in the Tri-Cities have worked at Riverview over the years, and some people lived on the grounds as children when it was a self-contained community. All have fascinating stories to tell, and that’s what the Riverview Horticultural Centre Society organizers of the 17th annual Treefest are hoping to showcase on Sunday, Sept. 12. New this year will be Riverview’s Living Heritage: A Panel Discussion. Four gifted storytellers have been invited to share memories and to answer questions about what Riverview was like in yesteryear. The discussion will be moderated by Donald Luxton, a well-known heritage architect who described the significance of Riverview for the recent heritage status applications. Panelists include: Val Adolph, former volunteer director at Riverview and founding society member; Katie Hughes, former horticultural therapy director at Riverview; Ron Talbot, who lived at Essondale as a child because his parents worked there; and Fred Bennett, a former psychiatric nurse and current society director. In keeping with the heritage theme, the Riverview Hospital Museum will be open during Treefest. The museum has a collection of artifacts, textiles, furniture and equipment that has significance in documenting the history of the hospital. An extensive photo collection traces the evolution of psychiatric care in British Columbia from its beginnings in 1850 in Victoria to today.  CONT. ON PAGE 13, see TOURS.

Hiking enthusiast Alexander Bell has been training to ascend the Coquitlam Crunch trail at least five times during a marathon fundraiser Sunday.

Coquitlam man goes Crunch crazy

Repeated hike up hill to benefit local foundation’s diversity fund John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Alexander Bell has seen first hand what it’s like when the ideals around diversity are marginalized, if not, nonexistent. For that reason, the Coquitlam native will take to a popular hiking trail in the Eagle Ridge neighbourhood Sunday morning in an effort to raise awareness about equitable treatment for all members of the community. Bell will attempt to scale the 2.5 kilometre hiking trail known at the Coquitlam Crunch as many times as he can Sunday to bolster the profile of both the Coquitlam Foundation and the Safe Harbour Program, which delivers workshops around diversity to businesses and agencies across the

Tri-Cities. “Diversity is such a broad range of issues, and so many people in some way or other can potentially be affected by diversity issues, whether it’s age, sexual orientation, ethnic, cultural or those with physical disabilities,” Bell said. Having put in some training already, Bell said he’s shooting for at least five round trips — 10 trail passes, when up and down are combined. Each trip represents about a 250-metre rise in elevation, and the five-kilometre round trips take about an hour to complete. In training for Sunday, Bell’s best efforts have seen him scale the trail three times consecutively. “I felt pretty good after that. I figure if I could do it three times, I should have a chance at five or 10,” said Bell, 47.

In his capacity with the Safe Harbour program, Bell delivers free workshops to local businesses around the issue of diversity while highlighting three central tenets: equitable treatment for all, an immediate safe place, and prepared employees and work sites. A former volunteer with Canada World Youth, Bell has travelled throughout parts of Africa, South America and the Caribbean. Through those travels he’s encountered troubling perceptions around physical disabilities, sexual orientation and various cultural norms. “I’ve had a lot of instances that have sensitized me to these many issues,” he said. Ultimately, it’s Bell’s goal to attract others to follow his lead and bolster donation amounts to a fund he’s set up through the Coquitlam Foundation

called the Diversity Initiative Fund. His hope is that $10,000 will be raised over the next four years to support other groups and individuals looking to trumpet similar diversity efforts. This year alone, Bell has raised close to $1,000 toward that goal by himself. “I’m pleased so far. If can do that by myself this year, I’m sure I can raise at least $2,500 each year for the next four years if other people want to become involved,” he said. “I don’t want to be the only one doing it next year. My vision is that we could have various diversity groups come out — it could be churches, senior’s homes, youth groups or any group.” Bell’s fundraiser starts at 6 a.m. Sunday at the foot of the Coquitlam Crunch trail. For more information on his efforts, visit the website at www.coquitlamcrunch.com.

Best of B.C.’s lifeguarding best in Coquitlam this week Anyone who is nervous around water might just feel especially safe by the pool this weekend. The City of Coquitlam is be hosting the 75th anniversary of the Barnsley B.C. and Yukon Lifeguard Championship at the City Centre Aquatic Complex, starting today (Friday). The province-wide competition will draw several hundred competitors, officials and spectators from across B.C. Finalists were selected last weekend at the Walnut Grove Community Centre in Langley, with a Coquitlam squad — the Flip Flops — coming out on top. Beach Patrol from Langley and Shockwave from Vernon earned second and third place, respectively. They topped the field of 13 teams to seek the

title of Fraser Valley regional champions, and earn a berth to the provincial showcase. Designed as a showcase for the high level of training that lifeguards attain, as well as the responsibility and confidence they show while performing their skills, the two-day event will feature competitors entered in numerous events. Water-rescue simulations, first-aid scenarios and fitness events will be held. Local athletes as well as other regional champions will also be present. The public is welcome to attend the event and cheer on Coquitlam’s lifeguards. The championships run Friday and Saturday at the complex, located at 1210 Pinetree Way by City Hall.

SHARE launches new series of addiction education sessions Addiction: it happens more than you realize. SHARE’s alcohol and drug program staff are about to kickstart its popular education series, with discussions each week until December. The program is free and open to everyone in the community, and features information for those who have an alcohol or drug problem. Those who are concerned about others’ use can also benefit from the program. It will help those people affected by others’ use to understand addicts and addictive behaviour. The format consists of a video, a brief presentation and open discussion. Topics range each week: • Sept. 8: The group will discuss use, misuse, abuse — how people become addicted. • Sept. 15: Medical aspects and effects of alcohol and drug abuse will be covered, along with what happens to the body and mind under the influence. • Sept. 22: Alcohol dependency and how it develops will be covered. Controlled using and effects on pregnant women will be discussed. • Sept. 29: Cocaine and crystal meth use, and the struggle to recover, will be the topic. Long-term recovery will also be broached. • Oct. 6: Staff will discuss relapse prevention, the psychological, emotional and physical aspects of relapsing and what can be done.

• Oct. 13: Learn how to cope with stress, be it little or big problems without using. • Oct. 20: Anger will be covered, allowing participants to understand anger and learn how to manage it more effectively. • Oct. 27: Learn about trauma and how substance misuse often occurs with people who have experienced childhood abuse. Learn how these experiences may cause relapses or continued misuse. • Nov. 3: Drinking, drugs and driving and how the new laws could affect you will be discussed. Participants will learn about blood alcohol levels and how drugs impair judgment. • Nov. 17: The group will discuss mental illness, depression and addiction. Many people have a substance problem and are coping with mental health issues. • Nov. 24: The substance affected will be the topic. The group will discuss how others’ misuse or abuse of alcohol and drugs affects us and how we can help others. • Dec. 1: Stage 2 recovery, and life in the future, will be the topic. The series runs each week on Wednesday from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on the second floor of the SHARE offices at 2615 Clarke St. in Port Moody. For information, call 604-936-3900.

Port Moody cadets take on Canada Port Moody sea cadets Quinn Lessing and Gleb Molseyenko of Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Grilse are among Canada’s top 50 Royal Canadian Sea Cadet sailors converging on Kingston, Ont., this week. The annual Sea Cadets’ National Regatta, staged by the Navy League of Canada and the Canadian Forces, pits each province’s top sailors against each other in four days of competition, testing not only their teamwork, seamanship and sailing strategy, but also their tenacity and

physical endurance. Teams from each province earned the right to compete in this national event by dominating their divisional competition in each province. Each crew of two cadets — a skipper and mate — will sail up to 12 races in the waters off Fort Henry and the Royal Military College of Canada, where Lake Ontario flows into the upper St. Lawrence River. Crews compete in pirate class sailboats with a spinnaker and trapeze, requiring a high level of sailing experience and expertise.

For a sailing town like Kingston, usually up to its gunwales in sailboat races, one more regatta might not make much of a ripple in Navy Bay. It is, however, a big deal for the sea cadets who travelled the length and breadth of Canada to get there: from St. John’s to Victoria; from Surrey and Summerside to Campbell River and TroisRivières. Cadets now face the toughest challenge: meeting their sea cadet peers to sail in unfamiliar waters.

Options aplenty in Wrangler editorial@thenownews.com

T

here’s nothing fancy about the Jeep Wrangler. It’s not as fast or sexy as a sports coupe. It’s not as cargo-friendly as a hatchback or as comfortable as a sedan. And it’s not as imposing as a full-size pickup truck. But there’s nothing else like the iconic Jeep, and that’s what makes it truly special. Ask owners why they bought their Wranglers and the answer will be the same: no other vehicle offers the open-air thrill of the legendary Jeep. It’s an American icon, a symbol of outdoor ruggedness, and one of the best off-roading vehicles to be found anywhere in the world. If you want one, there’s really only one question: how exactly do you want it? In 2007, Jeep addressed the Wrangler’s major shortcomings with the four-door Unlimited model. Riding on an extended wheelbase, the Unlimited adds useful rear seats and much more cargo space, and has proven to be a popular choice for Jeep owners requiring more practicality in their vehicle. It’s still a Wrangler, but there’s something decidedly mature and grown-up about it, in contrast to the carefree two-door. Perhaps the best way to describe the Unlimited is that it’s the sports sedan of Jeeps: half fun-loving runabout, half family vehicle. It’s not the classic Jeep that we know and love, but it’s the next best thing. Of course, the decisions don’t end after you choose the number of doors. Do you want the sunrider soft top, which can be folded open up front, dropped like a convertible, or removed completely? Or do you want the three-piece freedom top, which can be removed in pieces? Better yet, why not order both? All you need is a garage in which to store the extra pieces, and

a friend to help you switch the tops every once in a while. While you’re at it, don’t forget the removable full-height and half-height doors and the folding windshield. Add it all up, and there are roughly 60 different configurations for the Wrangler and 128 for the Wrangler Unlimited. If you can imagine how much fun it would be coming up with your favourite setups, then a Wrangler might be in your future.

The 2010 Jeep Wrangler looks like a grownup version of the classic sports sedan.

Design

Now in its third generation, the Wrangler was previously known as the YJ and TJ. As such, some owners refer to the current model by its “JK” body designation. Compared to the retired TJ, the Wrangler is bigger and noticeably wider, with a strong and planted stance and smoother exterior lines. To make room for the extra doors, Jeep stretched the Wrangler Unlimited’s wheelbase by 523 mm. Otherwise, the dimensions are nearly identical to the two-door model. Equipped with a hard top, the Wrangler Unlimited is a rectangle on wheels. It looks great if you’re a Jeep driver who needs the extra doors and cargo space, but may seem long and ungainly to everyone else. It looks best with the top off and the optional halfheight, windowless doors, which give it the profile of a pickup truck. For its part, the two-door Wrangler looks great in virtually every configuration. It’s purposeful and well-planted, with throwback details such as the engine-hood clips and oversized fenders. Inside, the Wrangler’s upright dashboard gets the standard Chrysler control layout in rugged and sturdy plastic. It’s not fancy and it doesn’t need to be.  CONTINUED ON PAGE 16, see IMPROVED.

centre stereo upgrades and side airbags. With the six-speed manual transmission, fuel efficiency is rated at 14.1 L/100 km in the city and 10.8 L/100 km on the highway.

Features

Performance

Under the hood the Wrangler features a 3.8-litre V-6 pushing 202-hp and 237 lb-ft of torque. It’s a reasonable powerplant, but doesn’t duplicate the awesome torque delivery of the beloved four-litre inline-six from the previous generation. The standard six-speed manual transmission’s shifter and clutch are light and relatively easy to operate. A nice function is the ability to disable the clutch-start interlock by pulling a fuse, which enables the Wrangler to start in gear. Anyone interested in serious off-roading will definitely appreciate this feature. Compared to the retired TJ, the Wrangler has a muchimproved suspension that provides a more stable and comfortable ride, though it’s still not on par with a car-based crossover SUV. Turns are wide and understeer is noticeable. Jeep’s Command-Trac shift-on-the-fly four-wheel-drive system is standard equipment, and top-end Rubicon models get the awesome Rock-Trac system for off-road manoeuvring.

The Wrangler starts at a very friendly $19,095, while the Unlimited is $23,495. Both are available in Sport, Sahara and Rubicon trim levels, and the base Sport can be had with a Mountain appearance package. True to form, the Sport is a basic Jeep with minimal standard features such as ABS, fog lamps, six-speaker CD stereo, cruise control, traction control, electronic stability program, hill start assist and front-side airbags. Options include the trac-lok and tru-lok rear differentials, sway bar disconnect, half-frame doors, side steps, air-conditioning, power locks and windows, media

Thumbs up and down

Thumbs up include: Top-down excitement; balanced on- and off-road handling; numerous configurations. Thumbs down: Unlimited’s ungainly exterior dimensions; uncomfortable headrests.

The bottom line

A Jeep for all seasons.

Environment

For quick open-air goodness, the Sunrider soft top’s front panel folds back to create a giant sunroof, and the hard-plastic freedom top’s front panels can be removed separately or together. You might want to leave the front panels on while removing the back canopy — there are a ton of options to consider. The front bucket seats are very firm, as are the rectangular headrests that are surprisingly uncomfortable. Set at odd and unadjustable angles, the headrests have a tendency to dig into the back of the occupants’ heads. Along with its extra doors, the Unlimited gains a threeperson, 60/40-split bench in place of the Wrangler’s two-seat bench, as well as a ton of cargo space. If you need to move lots of people or gear on a regular basis, there’s really no question as to which version you need. The cargo area is easy to access thanks to the side-swinging tailgate, but it can be hard to get at with the soft top installed, as the crossbar gets in the way. Both versions benefit from a

If you leave the bunches for a while, you need to know that spiders love to spin webs among lavender and any other herbs hanging up to dry.

Adanacs enter Minto final with momentum Stories by Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com With the dress rehearsal out of the way, the last two standing are ready to fully engage. And when it comes to the Coquitlam junior Adanacs and Orangeville Northmen, there are no expendables. The two Minto Cup finalists hit the Poirier Sports Centre floor tonight in Game 1 of the national junior A lacrosse championship with only one goal in mind — victory. If coaches are digging for motivational manna to get their charges amped up, they won’t have to look further than Tuesday’s round-robin rollercoaster ride. That’s where Coquitlam handed the two-time defending Minto champs a 15-12 loss, earning the first spot into the best-of-three final. The Northmen created the dream final Wednesday by pulling out a polished 6-4 win over the New Westminster Salmonbellies in the semifinal. The odds-on favourite as finalists, both Coquitlam and Orangeville have played it cautiously when it comes to staking out bold pre-final claims. As it is in traditional playoff lore, past encounters mean little. Beginning tonight, all Kevin Hill/NOW bets are off. THERE’S THE RUB: Coquitlam Adanacs’ Robbie Campbell, right, applies a check to Orangeville Northmen’s Brandon Ivey during Tuesday’s round“We expected a lot of presrobin clash.

Coquitlam ball player pushes her field of dreams to national bantam championship Coquitlam’s Tamara Derby knows what it’s like to be the lone female on the local baseball team. She’s also glad to be one of the girls, after being selected to Team B.C. for this week’s Canadian Bantam Girls Baseball championships, being held in Richmond. The 15 year old says the adjustment from being ‘one of the boys’ to an all-girls team isn’t a major change. “It’s a little easier playing with the girls after the boys’ season,” said Derby, “because I’m used to faster pitching and a serious atti-

tude. The boys are always serious, while this is a little more laid back, we like to have fun, too.” Since the age of 11, Derby has been catching and throwing the hardball, as a member of Coquitlam Little League. To earn her playing time, the Centennial student has become accustomed to how the boys play, and has gained plenty of respect as she’s climbed the ladder. This summer, she was chosen for the Coquitlam senior All-Stars that competed at the national championships last month. When that ended, Derby turned her focus to Team B.C. tryouts. “You have to keep up to speed with the pitching, to stay focused

the whole time,” the shortstop-pitcher said. As a member of last year’s squad that finished second overall, Derby went 2-for-5 at the plate and recorded one win. The competition this week will be tough, but she believes playing with the boys has only helped her lift her game. “I like how you have to focus hard during the game, you have to put your heart into it and do your best.” Although she also plays soccer, lacrosse and basketball, Derby said baseball is her main focus during the summer — and in fall ball, too. “I have my heart set on playing baseball as far as I can.”

Health care jobs on the rise Canada is on the cusp of a major change. The first wave of our country’s aging baby boomers is about to turn 65. With this milestone birthday comes retirement, of course, along with a host of challenges that will dramatically transform the country. Most significantly, mass retirement will have a striking impact upon employment and health care in Canada. As Canadians enter their golden years, they will be turning to the medical community to keep them healthy. In fact, over the next twenty five years, the passage of about 10 million boomers into retirement will present both major challenges and opportunities for our country’s medical system. From dental work to x-rays to in-home support, these new Canadian

seniors will be creating a significant demand for health care across the board. In addition to the increased need for health care, as older workers retire, the mass retirement will create openings for advancement and entry into jobs previously held by boomers. In short, the swell in the senior population spells out security for workers in the health care industry and opportunity for students seeking a future with good prospects. According to Jobfutures.ca, Canada’s National Career and Education planning tool, a number of occupations in the health care industry have been given the “Good Prospect” stamp of approval. By “Good”, the government of Canada is indicating that new

entrants into that particular field have “a relatively easy time finding permanent employment in targeted occupations with relatively high pay or attractive labour market conditions.” Of the forty or so occupations listed as “Good” prospects for 2010, over half are in the health care industry. As the country prepares for the upcoming 25 years of boomer retirement and its accompanying need for increased health care, this number can only be expected to rise-good news for current and potential health care workers. So what are some of the careers that stand to prosper from this mass retirement? We’ll take a look at three of these rising-star careers to learn more about the nature of the work, the education required and what one can expect to earn while contributing to this booming field. DENTAL ASSISTANT Dental assistants can perform a number of duties in support of a dentist. These can include polishing teeth, applying fluoride, preparing patients for dental examinations, preparing dental instruments and taking x-rays. Dental assistants require training in

a college program and, in all provinces but Quebec, licensing is mandatory. Once graduated, Dental assistants can expect to earn about $16.51 per hour. The growth of employment for this field is above average and expected to remain as such due, not only to the aging population, but also to the increase in Canadians with insurance coverage and improvements in dental technology. PHARMACY ASSISTANT Pharmacy assistants assist pharmacists by preparing, packaging and labeling pharmaceutical products. They also verify prescriptions, maintain patient records and monitor inventories of medications and pharmaceutical products. Pharmacy assistants require completion of secondary school and a college program in Pharmacy Assistant or Pharmacy Technician training. Once completed, a Pharmacy Assistant can expect to earn an hourly wage of about $14.51. NURSE (NURSE AIDE) Nurse Aides attend to the needs of patients in hospitals, nursing homes and other health care facilities. They may be involved in answering call signals, serving meals, take patient’s

Take Your Pick from the

blood pressure, collect fluid specimens, maintain inventory of supplies and perform maintenance tasks such as cleaning and sterilizing equipment. A Nurse Aide usually requires a college program with practical, on-the-job training. Once graduated, a Nurse Aide can expect to earn about $14.77 per hour. The next few years will bring many changes with them. For those Canadians thinking about jobs and what education or training they need for a prosperous future, it’s important to consider the effects of phenomena like the baby boomers. A growing and aging population that requires more health services coupled with new vacancies in these fields present a positive outlook for health care jobs. The three fields highlighted here give an idea of solid directions for students considering a new career in Canada but they are just a selection of the many opportunities that will be opening over the next few years. This period may be the end of work for some but it can be the beginning of a long and happy career for others.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Tackle those piles of work. It’s nit-picky, detailed work, and all the details are rife with mistakes, camouflaged instructions, missing pieces. But you gotta do it – so march ahead. Important relationships – friends, enemies, lovers, partners, competitors, counsellors – remain unusually favourable. You might give or receive attention. One who is attracted, or attracts, is a “door” to worldly success. (E.g., that sexy person might also bring career luck.) Better if you met some time ago. Start nothing major before Sept. 12. Chase money Sunday/Monday. Be home Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Romance wafts happily on the breeze! An old flame could grow hotter, especially if a co-worker is involved. Beauty, pleasure and a nice winning streak accompany you. A former recreational or creative venture might return. There’s still plenty of work to do, though. One chore, which might involve education, travel, cultural or media work, will take about two more years to complete. Your energy and charisma soar Sunday to Tuesday – tackle things that usually intimidate you, and see how easily you achieve! Money’s lucky Thursday. Be a friend Friday/Saturday. Career intuition is accurate. Gemini May 21-June 20: The weeks ahead accent your domestic situation, kids, security, real estate, gardening, nutrition and “the end of matters.” Usually this is a good time to decide who and what belongs in your life, and who/what should be left behind. But make no big decisions (in any of the areas listed) before Sept. 12. Your romantic prospects remain high, but attraction might compete with a natural physical lethargy – or, romance and co-habitation make a natural “pair.” You’re weary but lucky Sunday/Monday. Your charisma’s obvious midweek. You’re discovering love’s “other benefits.”

Cancer June 21-July 22: Communications, travel, paperwork, details, errands, casual acquaintances and “daily business” are accented now—and all are delayed or prone to mistakes. Check addresses on mail, figures on cheques, etc. Don’t start anything important before Sept. 12, particularly in these zones. (E.g., avoid a new advertising “mail out.”) You might hear long-lost news, receive a “lost letter,” hear from an old friend, etc. Your home remains sweet’n’sour, but ends “inspired.” Optimism, popularity and social joys bless you Sunday to Tuesday! Lie low mid-week. Your energy, charisma return Friday/Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your money (and career) luck rises, but more from past efforts, contacts, than new ones. Don’t launch any ventures before Sept. 12, especially in money areas. If you absolutely need a job, seek and land it (Sunday to Tuesday are good for this) – but realize that you will want to, will benefit, if you seek a new one within a year. (You’re headed for great career luck June 2011-June 2012, but that’s then.) Mid-week brings happiness, good friends, popularity, flirtations – with a Gemini? But retreat, lie low and contemplate (don’t plan) Friday/ Saturday. The best partner is a friend. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness reach a yearly high – but that effectiveness is confined to ongoing and “returning” projects (and people – a former attraction might be rekindled). Beware starting important new things before Sept. 12. Intellectual, far travel, educational, publishing, religious or cultural affairs flow very well Sunday to Tuesday afternoon. Love is gentle, wide. Your career and relations with higher-ups (including parents, police) are emphasized mid-week.All’s well, but don’t act unpredictably Thursday night. Hopes and friends make a good combo Friday/Saturday!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. Secrets, mysteries, financial plums, intimate clinches, subconscious desires surfacing – these fill Sunday through Tuesday. (Best Sunday, Monday morning.) Work in the background all week, especially these three days – a government agency, institution, large corporation or charitable organization could be your ally. Wisdom, a mellow mood, and matters of law, culture, education, thought, love and “meaning” arise mid-week – with misunderstandings Wednesday, sweet understandings Thursday. Don’t push anyone Friday/Saturday. All week, conserve energy. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Wishes can come true this week and next – especially former wishes, events you wanted to occur in the past, then gave up on. (E.g., a sweet or flirtatious friend returning.) (You might be tempted by a clandestine romance August and September.) Remember, start nothing new – projects nor important links – before Sept. 12. Relationships fill Sunday to Tuesday – open, exciting, sometimes challenging relationships. Be diplomatic, eager to join. Sex, secrets, intimate commitments, “big” finances arise mid-week. (All’s well.) Avoid ethical, educational, publishing commitments late week. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Delay major initiatives until Sept. 12. Stick with the old or ongoing – and protect these from mistakes and “no shows,” especially in business and career zones. This is a fairly easy, mellow week. You’ll have to work hard – your performance is being watched. But friends, light flirtations, entertainment and happy hopes lighten every day! Tackle work Sunday to Tuesday – success awaits. Relationships, opportunities and challenges fill Tuesday eve to Thursday. Be open, honest, receptive: love’s “around.” Careful with finances, sex, commitments (no pregnancies!) Friday/Saturday.

August 29 - Sept. 4 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Sweet, mellow thoughts, solutions, dreams, revisions float through your head – but if you actually sit down to write them out, you’ll discover they were “gossamer on the breeze” – insubstantial, impractical, even nonsensical. This gossamer is the “chatter” as your lower mind sorts out the past two years. The true results are substantial and beneficial – and sub-conscious. Do events since 2008 seem grim? No worries: you are coming into your power. Your career efforts need pruning: encourage growth by ending/clipping some involvements. Early week, love, pleasure. Mid: work. Late: caution. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Secrets, mysteries, dreams, subconscious desires (and fears) research, diagnosis, health, investments, debts, large finances, lifestyle choices, commitments, sexual intimacy – these are emphasized, and in all, mistakes run rife. However, these are also mines filled with rich veins running through the past – there might be an old investment, a former intimate partner, an old piece of research that holds deep benefits for you! (Most likely to appear Sunday to Tuesday.) But make NO new investments (etc.) before Sept. 12. Romance calls mid-week. Careful with health, chores Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb.19-March20:Thepastisalive;thepresent, as if scared, dithers around, circling uncertainties. So deal with the past – former agreements, opportunities, negotiations, relationships. These yield benefits. Every relationship holds something in its hands: money, love, sex, commitment, the future: especially now. The deeper you plunge, the more you will find, most of it gratifying. You could get hooked on someone, August September! Sunday to Tuesday accent travel, communications. Mid-week draws you toward home, foundations. Friday/Saturday bring romantic, pleasure urges: be honest, cautious. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
