Wanted: Pennies from our schools! Hey kids: Are you hungry to help a good cause and feed your appetite for all things hockey? Then The NOW has a contest for you. Every year a host of schools take part in the newspaper’s Pennies for Presents campaign. Elementary, middle and secondary school students have all contributed in varying amounts, playing a big part in boosting fundraising totals over the years and helping us top $18,000 in 2009. So for the 21st Pennies for Presents campaign, The NOW invites local classrooms to collect as many coppers and coins as possible for an inaugural Pennies school challenge. For each $100 a classroom donates, they will be entered into a draw for a free pizza lunch, which will be enjoyed alongside future hockey heroes. A group of Coquitlam Express junior hockey players will drop by the class before or after lunch, and have offered to play a game of road hockey with the winning class. The Express have also donated 30 tickets for the winning classroom to attend a game in the new year, when the students will be recognized during the game. Those classes that find it a bit tough to reach $100 can still enter our photo contest online to be published in the paper. Check out www.thenownews.com/community/pennies/index.html for full contest details and deadlines.

Sonny Son, a Coquitlam resident and president of the Korean Veterans’ Association, is angry about North Korea’s attack on South Korea.

Local Korean community on edge

Tensions between the two Koreas worry Tri-Cities residents with family living overseas Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com The recent artillery attack on South Korea hit close to home for the local Korean community. Last week, two soldiers and two civilians were killed when North Korea attacked the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong. Nearly 20 more people were injured and dozens of homes were destroyed. The event marked the first attack on a civilian area since the Korean War. About 80,000 Korean-Canadians live in the Vancouver area, with the majority settled in Coquitlam. Senator Yonah Martin, who ran as the Conservative candidate for New WestminsterCoquitlam in the 2008 provincial election, said she reacted to the incident with great worry.

“My parents are survivors of the Korean War. My father was born in the northern part of Korea before the war. So it touches me on so many levels … I have some fear not just for the people in Korea, but for the region and even Canada and what this could mean if something were to advance to a more dangerous level,” Martin said. “So for me, it’s a combination of all those things and a real concern for the people that are going to be the victims in this. North Korea is impoverished and there’s a real need for humanitarian aid. There was a considerable amount of aid going from South Korea to North Korea, so that will be affected immediately in the interim. So the people, once again, will suffer.” Martin is not alone in her concern. Coquitlam resident Sonny Son thinks the actions of North Korea call for a strong response. “Personally, I’m really angered at the animal act

of the North Korean military people. That is a really coward act, animal act. That is only bullying,” said Son, president of the Korean Veterans’ Association. “[The] Korean government, they should punish them right away.” Son was born in North Korea. During the Korean War his family escaped to the south, where he grew up. He came to Canada in 1973. He said Coquitlam’s Korean population is upset about the current situation. “This is enough,” he said. “They are concerned. They are very angry.” Angela MacKenzie, board director of the C3 Korean Canadian Society, said the local community is following the events in Korea closely. “We all hope the situation will be resolved peacefully,” the former NOW reporter said in an e-mail.  CONTINUED ON PAGE 4, see CANADIAN EMBASSY.

Say Goodbye to Knee Pain “I was diagnosed with arthritis in my left knee...my family doctor told me this will affect my knee for around 6-8 months, but it was longer...

The Port Moody-based pugilist is one of two athletes with ties to the Tri-Cities competing in tonight’s mixed martial arts (MMA) event at the Boulevard Casino, the third such event to take place in Coquitlam. Billed as “Seeing Red — MMA Live In The Cage,” tonight’s 13 fights are being promoted by West Coast Promotions and sanctioned by a group called MMABC.

So I think everybody, whether their family’s from the north or south, condemns the regime and they condemn any acts of aggression and brutality and senselessness.” Canada has also been a clear voice condemning the artillery attack, Martin said. As well, she added, the Canadian embassy is looking out for Canadians in Korea. “The Canadians in Seoul are saying that the Canadian embassy has an emergency evacuation list and Canadians are being contacted quite regularly about the situation and being monitored. They feel quite looked after and connected to Canada. I thought that was a really good sign.”

A Tri-Cities resident, MacKenzie was born in Seoul but moved to Canada as a baby. Her mother, the youngest of seven children, came from the north. “She was around three years old when the war broke out. Like many women, my grandmother was left to take care of her children on her own and managed to get all of them across to the south before the border between the two countries closed,” MacKenzie wrote. “As a consequence, my mother grew up in Incheon, which is where the hundreds of people from Yeonpyeong Island were evacuated to after the North Korean bombardment. When news broke of the attack, my mother said she was immediately reminded of the war.” Although her mom rarely speaks of her experiences, MacKenzie said her aunts have shared their stories over the years. “For that generation, even for those who have immigrated here to Canada and started new lives, the war still conjures up vivid memories and ones that are often painful and heartbreaking. So many were separated from their parents, siblings or other family members because of the war, and some still hope to be reunited some day,”

What’s next for rezoned Coquitlam shelter site? John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com The land has been rezoned, but what happens next? That’s the question The NOW put to several key players days after Coquitlam council’s vote to rezone land at 3030 Gordon Ave. for a homeless shelter. For Mayor Richard Stewart, Step 1 entails reaching out to area residents and working towards alleviating any outstanding concerns they may have. “I want to be able to sit down with those neighbours and work out specific issues and specific solutions,” Stewart said. “I want their neighbourhood to be better, and I believe we can make their neighbourhood better than it is today — both in the coming weeks and after the shelter is built.” Given that the land has been rezoned, what the city now needs is money — both the capital and operating costs for the shelter fall under the jurisdiction of the provincial government body known as BC Housing. “[Coquitlam’s] shelter and transition housing remains a top priority for the province, and capital funding will be considered in the 2011/2012 budget process,” a rep from BC Housing told The NOW Thursday on condition of anonymity. An operational agreement also needs to be drafted up, one that covers off on which services will be provided and security measures, among other things. Project development funding is also needed to allow the city and BC Housing to begin the request for proposals process for a non-profit shelter operator. “That operating agreement better come in with all the things I want in it — they better bring the services,” said Coun. Mae Reid, chair of the city’s land use committee. “What it comes down to right now is that whoever is going to operate that shelter, I want to see 24-hour security, I want to see all those facilities

NOW file photo

Many residents are opposed to plans to build a shelter. and programs we have asked for, and I want to see zero tolerance on drugs and alcohol. This operating agreement is going to be the telling factor for me.” Coquitlam-Burke Mountain MLA Doug Horne attended Monday’s public hearing and said Wednesday he will lobby people in government ahead of next spring’s budget deliberations to ensure provincial money is forthcoming. “I’m pushing hard to get us to the next phase so we can get things happening there. I think it’s important that we have the supports in the community for these people,” he said. “I’m hoping that at some point next year we’ll be in a position to announce that. But it all depends on where we’re at from a budget standpoint.” But even if provincial funding is announced after the spring budget, a significant gap will exist between the end

of the cold wet weather mat program and the shelter’s completion. Both Horne and Tri-Cities Homelessness Task Group chair Sandy Burpee are pushing for a “container village” concept to bridge that gap, a proposal that represents a partnership between the Hope For Freedom Society, Shadow Lines Transportation Group and Boyd Autobody and Glass. “The length of the gap I don’t know, but it will certainly be several years, I would think,” Burpee said. “In the interim, the container village proposal that is currently on the table right now, that would be the gap-filler and the interim step.” Proposed as a year-round facility, the container village would feature modular units that have been approved by the Canadian Standards Association, as well as a communal kitchen, a common area and a separate unit for

food service workers and shelter staff. It could potentially accommodate up to 24 people per night, though councils in both Port Moody and Port Coquitlam have suggested there is no room for such a facility in those municipalities. “I would endorse a solution that is temporary that would provide housing for people. Given the choice between sleeping in a cardboard box and sleeping in a container that actually provided shelter and a comfortable bed to sleep on, I think you’d choose the bed and shelter any time,” said Horne, adding that no definitive location has been suggested to accommodate the facility in Coquitlam either. Organizers behind the container shelter proposal are in the midst of an online community capacity building contest called the Aviva Community Fund. The online voting contest just entered its semi-final

Opinion

Take some time to help out The holidays are just around the corner. While some people are thinking about gift ideas, others are worrying about providing a meal for their family. With the rising cost of living, a recent report by Stats Canada indicating an unemployment rate of 7.4 per cent in B.C. and the entry level minimum wage of $6 per hour, there are many families struggling to make ends meet. The struggle to provide basic necessities for the family could bring additional stress during the holiday season, leavTo The ing individuals to face difficult choices. These tough choices can cause an emotional and physical burden on individuals and families. We can, however, share the joy of the holidays and help lessen the stress that some families may experience. We can all help ease some of the tension by participating in local fundraisers. Many Canadians are turning to charitable organizations for assistance with basic necessities such as baby formula, milk, fruit and vegetables. Sadly, some of these organizations may need to turn away people in need. Several organizations have noticed a

decrease of about 33 per cent in food donations and an average increase of 10 per cent in demand compared to previous years. Most of these organizations are run by volunteers who are focused on making a difference in their community. The organizations help support people by providing them with resources to make their holiday season enjoyable. Although some people may feel their donations are insignificant, the organizations gladly accept any help that is Editor offered to them. This season we can all make a difference in our community by supporting the following organizations through donating non-perishable food items, gifts or even a little time from our busy schedule to make a difference in somebody’s life: the SHARE Family & Community Services Society, the Salvation Army (Christmas kettle campaign) and Coquitlam Centre’s charity gift wrap and toy bank.

The cables contained unguarded comments and information circulating in the U.S. diplomatic corps. Such as news that Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s government is considered corrupt. And that many Middle Eastern states view Iran as a destabilizing force. Closer to home, we’ve learned CSIS is pouting that Canadian courts are hampering its ability to shake down suspected “terrorists” by insisting on their civil rights. So far the revelations haven’t exactly been earth-shattering. But U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is not amused, calling the leaks an “attack on America’s foreign policy interests.” Truth is, the cables present a refreshing change: world situations described with colourful candour and stripped of their usual spin. Despite its bad-boy reputation, WikiLeaks provides a valuable function — a check on power. Its value has already drawn positive attention from the international community, like an award from Amnesty International in 2009 for shedding light on the problems of police killings in Kenya. Its check on power comes from providing us with information we need to question decisions and call leaders to account. Perhaps the “interests” Clinton speaks of ought to be a bit more transparent. The fact is, more blood has been spilled and more damage caused when citizens were kept in the dark about the actions of their governments. The weapons of mass destruction that didn’t exist, yet were used to justify starting a war, come to mind. There’s also the small issue of the sub-prime mortgage meltdown and global economic crisis ignored by those in a position to see it coming. If knowing information means preventing war and economic collapse, we say long live the leaks.

Homeless could be housed in cottages

less people and their plight, I object to the harm some of their actions cause others. Parents with growing children are struggling, often with incredible self-sacrifice, to provide for their families in today’s challenging economy and don’t appreciate having the safety of their children, homes and livelihoods threatened. People with serious addictions and mental health issues are a danger to themselves, others and property. No parent will accept that risk. Thank God for local To The church groups and SHARE society, whose role it has always been to serve as a refuge. Their outreach programs and food banks will continue to serve people in these difficult times. Judy Donaghey Port Coquitlam

Re: “Coquitlam OKs homeless shelter,” Wednesday, Dec. 1. Riverview lands were wisely set aside many years ago, with our parents’ tax support, a protective legacy to all, to treat many of these same displaced, troubled folks we term homeless today. There are no liquor stores or drug houses there to supply addictions. Community gardens at Colony Farm currently supply organic produce for food banks. Why not permanently house homeless people in cottages at Riverview to harvest those rich lands themselves, restoring their health and dignity in the process? A few greenhouses there would yield year-round produce for many, and why not? Such was its original intent. Several years ago, a house fire destroyed a rental property near my home by Fox Park, where several homeless men were residing with a young family and their children. After the fire, which left that family homeless, a number of these men remained in the immediate vicinity in an old RV, harassing single mothers by knocking uninvited on their doors late at night while inebriated, dumpster-diving at 2 a.m., disrupting children’s sleep, generally creating a disturbance and setting a bad example. While I feel empathy for home-

we all know, hand sanitizer gets rid of 99.99 per cent of bacteria; however, this includes the good bacteria and oils that actually protect the body.” Yes, I have actually read the ingredients that constitute hand sanitizer. One of the particular delights and burdens of being a chemist is being able to read those ingredient lists with a greater understanding. But, for an untrained reader, such lists can be a little scary: the long, impenetrable Editor names and acronyms, and the lingering suspicion that it’s something that’s probably bad for us. In the news, we’re accustomed to hearing about chemicals in consumer products with negative effects and campaigns to ban them. But those chemicals are in the minority, because of regulation and the undeniable truth that chemists are human beings who would never want a child to be hurt by a chemical that they made. So let me read for you the ingredient list for the hand sanitizer (OneStep) that I happen to have on hand: ethyl alcohol (62 per cent), water, isopropyl alcohol, PEG-7 glyceryl cocoate, acrylates/C10-30 alkyly acrylate crosspolymer, parfum, aloe baradensis, hydroxypropyl-cellulose, tetrahydroxypropyl ethylene diamine. Now, let’s translate this: alcohol (kills germs), water (safe!), rub-

bing alcohol (kills germs), emollient (skin moisturizer), thickener (so you can rub it on your hands), fragrance, aloe extract (houseplant with medicinal leaves), thickener (made from plant cell walls), thickener. Despite their arcane names, these ingredients are not adsorbed through the skin: the alcohol and water evaporate almost immediately, leaving a thin, invisible film of the other components on your hands. These components are inert, excepting the emollient which softens the skin, and none is known to remove or destroy the “oils that actually protect the body” in this process. (It should be noted that there are no sebaceous glands on the palm of the hand, hence the skin exposed to hand sanitizer naturally produces no oils.) Everyone should know more about the chemicals that they use on a day-to-day basis, and their demonstrated effects, both good and bad. And statements regarding chemicals should be checked with the same rigour as a politician’s quote or a leaked memo. In our age of information, much of this is readily available online, whether from Wikipedia or the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, among the hundreds of other sources. There’s no place for insinuating that the chemicals on the ingredient list are bad. Jeffrey N. Murphy PhD student in the Department of Chemistry University of Alberta

RCMP’s E Division headquarters has announced it can no longer post press releases about crime in the province to its website

(www.bc.rcmp.ca) until versions in both English and French are available and released simultaneously. The decision was made after a dispute over the federal Official Languages Act, which requires all releases to be issued in both French and English.

Students raise funds for school in Uganda

harles Best Secondary students are raising money to rebuild a school impacted by war in Uganda. The Coquitlam high school partnered with Keyo Secondary School in the Amuru district of northern Uganda. The initiative began after a school presentation from Invisible Children Inc., a non-profit organization that aims to stop the exploitation of child soldiers in northern Uganda. Charles Best students were interested in helping with the cause, so they launched a Schools for Schools club to fundraise for the program. In their first week, they raised more than $500 and they plan to keep going with a goal of $5,000. For more information or to make a donation, visit http://s4s.invisiblechildren.com/ school/0/0017000000bDWSLAA4.

The firefighters presented a demonstration about fire gear and a talk about fire prevention. After the presentation, Lucia was whisked away in the fire truck to Coquitlam City Hall, where Stewart presented her with a plaque. From there, she headed to the fire hall for lunch with the mayor and firefighters.

Author visits Scott Creek

Scott Creek Middle School recently enjoyed an author’s visit for winning a TD Kids Book Club contest. Each year, CBC runs the contest for elementary schools in seven locations across Canada. Winning schools receive a visit from an author for a book club discussion, which CBC Radio records for broadcast. This year, classes wrote stories or poems about why the book club should come to their school. Scott Creek students blanketed the contest with nearly 30 entries and won the visit for the Greater Vancouver region. Arthur Slade, author of The Hunchback Assignments, was onsite at Scott Creek for a taping of CBC’s North by Northwest, along with program moderator Cheryl McKay. To listen to Scott Creek’s entries, visit www. cbc.ca/books/bookclub/tdbooks/watchlisten. html.

Talk with Your Teenager about Substance Use and Misuse At SHARE, we believe in supporting positive relationships between parents/caregivers and teenagers. Creating and/or taking the opportunities to have conversations with our youth are key components to supporting them to successfully navigate the teenage years. Our role as a parent/caregiver naturally, changes as children grow. When they are young we are concerned with their safety and protection; we make the majority of decisions for them. As they grow into teenage hood we move more towards providing guidance to try to ensure that the choices they make are best for their future. This can be challenging and it may be difficult to know where to start conversations about topics of concern such as substance (alcohol and/or drug) use and/or misuse. There are many different approaches to this. In the November issue of SHARE inYour Community, we identified three of our “top 5 ways” to talk with our youth about substance use and misuse. The first three were: 1. Create opportunities for regular communication, 2. Be a good listener and acknowledge our youth’s point of view, 3. Be direct and honest about our own fears regarding substance use and our concerns about our youths well being. The final two strategies in our “top five” are 4. Clarify your own beliefs and values about substance use/misuse and be clear with youth about our expectations of them. Expectations, boundaries and rules can provide support for young people dealing with new situations and challenges.We might consider what guidelines we want to put in place for our youth’s behaviour, discuss these expectations with them and demonstrate openness to the possibility of re-negotiation. It can be important to let youth know that mistakes happen and problems occur and have reassurances you will work with them to sort it out. Clear expectations can send them the message that we care enough to try to protect them. 5. Educate yourself with accurate, unbiased information about alcohol and drug substances and their use/misuse. It can be valuable for our youth to experience adults as approachable and a credible source of information. If we acquire basic knowledge and show openness to seek out information, we will be able to help our youth learn skills to critically assess information. This helps keep the communication flowing and the relationships strong. *sourced from Centre for Addictions Research of B.C.

You & The Law ACCIDENT WITNESS WINS “NERVOUS SHOCK” DAMAGES BTM LAWYERS LLP

By Janice Mucalov, LL.B.

LAWYERS & TRADEMARK AGENTS

Accident victims who are physically hurt because of another’s fault are typically entitled to compensation. But historically, courts have been reluctant to award damages for pure psychological injury. Now, however, Canadian courts are awarding compensation for what the law calls “nervous shock.”

driver of the injured motorcyclist on the road, but he didn’t see her waving her arms and ran over the motorcyclist. Dolores received $7,500 for her “posttraumatic stress reaction” (which included sleeplessness, a driving phobia, and constantly reliving the scene of the accident).

The BC Supreme Court recently awarded $11,000 to a man who suffered post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after witnessing a gruesome accident on the Patullo Bridge.

Not all mental distress is compensable when a claim is made for nervous shock. More than “mere emotional upset” is needed. Damages are only intended for a recognizable psychiatric illness caused by the defendant’s carelessness, not just grief or sorrow.

Nicholas A. was driving from his home in Surrey to North Vancouver, where he worked as a yardmaster for C.N. Rail. On the Patullo Bridge, he saw a speeding vehicle behind him swerve into the opposite lane and hit a minivan head-on. He called 911 and spent almost two hours at the scene helping the victims. He moved back and forth between the injured drivers, speaking to them, trying to comfort them, and indicating that help was coming. The driver of the minivan was hanging out the driver’s window and the minivan passenger was lying outside. Nicholas could also see flames that were put out by the fire department. When he finally went to the ambulance, he found that he had blood on his arms and he could smell the perfume worn by one of the victims. Both drivers eventually died, as did one of the passengers in the minivan. Almost a year after the accident, Nicholas suffered a panic attack at work. He was later diagnosed with PTSD as a result of the nervous shock he suffered at the accident scene, resulting in anxiety while driving, flashbacks to the accident and sleep difficulties for 12 to 18 months. The BC Supreme Court concluded that the estate of the driver at fault was liable for Nicholas’ nervous shock. In an earlier Ontario case, Dolores B. also recovered damages for nervous shock after witnessing an accident. She and her husband were driving on a rural road when a motorcyclist ran into the side of their car, bounced off the windshield and landed on the road. She then tried to warn another approaching

In considering whether a bystander who witnesses an accident should get compensation, the court must ask – Is it reasonably foreseeable that a person of ordinary fortitude or emotional sensibility would suffer psychiatric harm as a result of the defendant’s negligence? The plaintiff and defendant must also share a sufficiently close relationship so that the defendant owes the plaintiff a duty to take care. This typically requires the plaintiff to have been geographically close to the accident (i.e., present at the scene) or emotionally close to the injured victims (i.e., a family member) or to have developed the psychiatric illness soon after the accident. The law in the area of recovery for nervous shock is evolving – and may even extend in future to cover hearing terrible news. Seek legal advice if you are injured, physically or emotionally, as a result of a car crash.

Wine

The NOW COQUITLAM, PORT COQUITLAM, PORT MOODY, ANMORE AND BELCARRA

Surprise your guests by adding sweet wines to the festivities  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 15.

Rustic Roots has crafted a Santa Rosa dessert wine made from Santa Rosa plums. I was pleasantly surprised by the interplay of the tart plum and the sweetness of the wine. The nose and flavours of extracted plum, strawberry and citrus round out this wine. Elephant Island wines from the Naramata Bench are renowned for their fabulous fruit wines, and the Cassis 2009 dessert fruit wine is no exception, with loads of rich currant flavours followed by clove and licorice notes. It is fortified to 16-

per-cent alcohol. I drink this one sans dessert as it tastes like a dessert unto itself. California, the land of tropical fruit and sunshine, makes some delicious sweet wines. A standout for me is Elysium Black Muscat 2005 from Quady Winery. This exotic, rich and sweet wine is packed with a lychee and rose bouquet. A few drops can be used in a flute of sparkling wine to add complexity and fla-

vour to ring in the new year. Add a little fun and adventure and surprise your guests this holiday season by adding a few sweet selections to your festivities. • John Gerum is a wine instructor, writer and consultant with West Coast Wine Education.

The Tucson documents Hyundai’s progression in the vehicle company market.

Road testing the Tucson editorial@thenownews.com

All new last year, the Hyundai Tucson is fresh evidence of how far the Hyundai Motor Company has come in a relatively short time period. No longer a lower-priced second choice or a used car alternative, Tucson is another example of a Hyundai that also competes headto-head in the performance, quality and design arenas. There are no compromises here. The technology is first rate and its design, handling and

ride reflect its European connection. Tucson was conceived and engineered at Hyundai’s new design centre in Frankfurt and has evolved into a slick and very modern cross-utility vehicle. Tucson is a nice size, economical and a versatile multi-task vehicle that can handle the daily urban grind, big boxes from Ikea or weekend escapes with the family. Stylish yet practical, it has space for four, maybe five, occupants and plenty of cargo room. Lighter (28 kg) than its predecessor,

TRI-CITIES AUTOMOTIVE

GUIDE

Base edition boasts features  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 22.

Tucson’s clean and efficient 2.4 litre (176 hp) four-cylinder engine and new six-speed automatic transmission delivers excellent fuel economy. The front-drive version uses just 6.3 litres/100 km on the highway and if fitted with allwheel-drive, it consumes an extra 0.8 L/100 km. Even a base GL edition comes with air conditioning, a Bluetooth hands-free phone connection and power windows, locks and mirrors. The side mirrors are also heated and it has keyless entry plus a security system. Audio input jacks are provided, the steering wheel has audio controls and four-wheel disc brakes are standard. The GLS ($26,799) trim additions include 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lights and a tilt and telescopic steering wheel. Moving up to the limited ($32,449) trim adds leather seating, dual-zone air conditioning, 18-inch alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof, all-wheel-drive and more. Our test Tucson was a topline limited with navigation ($34,449). In addition to the 6.5-inch touch screen navigation system it also includes

For the 2011 model year, Hyundai offers a new lowerpriced base L trim version of Tucson with a two-litre engine and a five-speed manual transmission ($20,999), or optional six-speed automatic. It eliminates the 2010 GL 2.4 litre engine with a six-speed manual. Other than that the lineup and pricing are essentially unchanged.

The Looks

Tucson is a complex styling exercise with lots of interest-

ing body lines and creases, yet it all pulls together very nicely. Short body overhangs, pushed-out wheels and a high belt line give it a well-planted, on-the-road and secure appearance. A roof line that swoops down at the rear adds to its sporty appearance and the spoiler above the rear window is standard on all versions. While Tucson is longer and wider than rivals such as the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape and Subaru Forester, it tends to look even bigger than it is in reality.

TRI-CITIES AUTOMOTIVE

GUIDE

Roomy interior well-suited for taller drivers and passengers The Inside

Nothing too fancy or cluttered, the dash is simple yet has everything you need with easy to understand and use controls. The instrument panel is a two-pod design with centrally positioned engine temperature, fuel gauge and trip info electronic readouts. The cabin is roomy and suited to taller drivers with a high seating position that looks down at the instrument panel. Despite the panoramic sunroof and its sloped-to-theback roofline, the rear passengers, surprisingly, are also provided with good head and leg room. The panoramic sunroof comes with the limited package and has an attractive full glass roof appearance on the outside. From the inside, only the front part opens and the rear section is fixed (but has a sliding shade). On the downside, you lose roof rails and any notion of attaching a roof rack. One minor annoyance was the sloped navigation screen. The lack of hood to shade the screen made it occasionally difficult to read in the glare of the sun.

The Drive

From the elevated driving position, outward vision was generally good and the big side mirrors were great. The sloped rear window seems smaller through the rear-view mirror so the back-up camera was definitely an asset. Tucson is not going to break any land speed acceleration records, but it’s certainly competitive in its class. Its engine is smooth and quiet in normal driving but it lets you know that it’s working hard, if you floor the gas pedal. On the plus side, it’s an ultraclean running engine that plays a major role in making the Tucson qualify as a Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle. The new six-speed automatic transmission is excellent and it gives Tucson a positive advantage over other vehicles in its class. It offers manual shifting capability and in auto mode the shifts are smooth and precise. Best of all, at highway speeds its extra overdrive gears keep engine speeds low and provide better fuel efficiency. Tucson’s electric power steering is one of the better motor driven systems I’ve tried. It’s precise and nicely

Score Card

Young Rapids load up on experience Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com Slotted second in the first coaches’ poll of the preseason, the Riverside Rapids senior girls basketball team is eager to prove that ranking over the next few months. Last year’s fourth-best team in B.C., the squad started the exhibition slate Tuesday by edging the Squalicum Storm of Bellingham 49-47, and before hitting the W.J. Mouat tournament this weekend. That they are seeded so high can be seen as a compliment to the talent that has returned, and the program’s coach and overseer, Paul Langford. Entering his 10th season on the Rapids bench, Langford knows that the opportunity to surprise his opponents is long gone. “I told the girls that the first rankings don’t matter, it’s just opinions from people who haven’t seen anybody play yet,” said Langford. “It’s nice but it isn’t necessarily reflective of what’s going to happen.” Going on past history, however, the poll of AAA coaches has history on its side. The PoCo program has qualified for the B.C.s five times in the last nine years, including the last four — where they finished fourth, second, second and fourth overall. It’s tough to argue with that kind of track record, especially as it covers a couple of rebuilding cycles. This year’s roster is certainly not of the reloading kind, with six returning players. The anomaly this season is that Riverside has only one Grade 12 on the roster — Hillary Young, a transfer student from Centennial — and 10 Gr. 11s. “We looked at last year as sort of a rebuilding year, with six Gr. 10s,” noted Langford. “They had good success making the adjustment, and we snuck up on a lot of people. I don’t know if we’ll be sneaking up on anyone this year.” The lineup doesn’t feature a lot of size, with under-17 B.C. player Megan Sherwood the tallest at fivefoot-11.

THAT WAS THEN: Coquitlam Express defenceman Riley McIntosh, shown above battling for the puck earlier this season with then-Surrey Eagle-current Express forward Mike Krgovich, helped set up the tying goal in Surrey on Wednesday. Unfortunately, the Eagles won in OT.

Midway mark supplies silver lining for Express

There have been few high points over the past month for the Coquitlam Express. Rallying from two goals down to tie the game could count as one such ray of sunshine. Unfortunately, Coquitlam closed out the first half of the 2010-11 B.C. Hockey League season with a 4-3 overtime loss to the Surrey Eagles on Wednesday, despite the late heroics. That pretty much sums up the first 30 games in a nutshell for the rebuilding Express franchise. Jared Eng’s goal with 51 seconds left in the third period, converting a rebound from a shot by Riley McIntosh, earned Coquitlam a single point. Dale Hunt gave Surrey the win

when he beat Khaleed Devji with 16 seconds left in the extra session. “We came out to our typical slow start and that’s become an area of concern for the coaching staff,” said head coach Jon Calvano. “We need to find that jump and quick start we exhibited early in the season.” Trailing 1-0 after 20 minutes and 20 after 40, the visiting Express pushed the Eagles in the third period. Garrick Perry made it 2-1 with a powerplay marker early in the third, but Surrey restored the two-goal advantage two minutes later. With 10 minutes to play, winger Massimo Lamacchia cut the deficit to a goal, with an assist from Eng. That set up the late rally, which

occurred before Devji could be pulled for an extra attacker. “It all started at the faceoff, which we won,” said Calvano. “Eng jumped to the front of the net, we had the puck along the wall... We got a shot off and Jared was in the right spot to put it in the open cage.” That the game ended in a loss proved to be a tad disconcerting, especially with Devji turning in a relatively strong effort with 39 saves. Coquitlam generated a handful of good scoring chances, with Michael Krgovich and Destry Straight coming close. Although they’ve fallen in the standings since their terrific 8-4-0-1 start, the Express have treaded water despite winning just twice in the past

10 games. Three overtime losses — still waiting for their first OT win of the season —and one tie have helped them stay ahead of Cowichan Valley in the battle for the final playoff spot. After the game, Coquitlam released defencemen Wade Bennett and Cole Manning and forward Steve Axford. It leaves the team with 21 players and four cards with which to play with. “We have enough cards, so if a player comes available that can help us, we can bring them home.” If things don’t improve, it could be Express players coming available who do the moving. Coquitlam continues on the road in Port Alberni, Nanaimo and Powell River this weekend.

COQUITLAM METRO-FORD SOCCER TEAM OF THE WEEK Metro Ford is excited to introduce an

U15 Coquitlam Metro-Ford Boys Team

To become North American champions, it takes dedication, perseverance, concentration, strength, will power, skill, endurance, and the ability to overcome obstacles. The Under 15 Metro-Ford boys’ Super ‘Y’ League team proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that they possessed all the above-mentioned qualities as they made history by becoming the first Coquitlam team to win the USL North American championship this past week. After winning the Northwest Conference, the Metro-Ford team was drawn in the group stage against North Virginia Royals, Ironbound SC from New Jersey, and Wellington Wave from Florida. The Metro-Ford boys won their group—and thus qualified for the semi-finals—by beating North Virginia by a 3-0 score, tying Ironbound SC 1-1, and defeating Wellington 3-1. In the semi-finals, Metro-Ford faced the highly-regarded TSF Academy from New Jersey and soundly beat them by a decisive 3-0 margin. In the final, our boys met the hosting Tampa Bay squad and eventually won the title on penalty kicks after the game had ended in a 1-1 tie. As a result, the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Under 15 boys were declared North American Champions. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE UNER 15 BOYS FOR THEIR EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE!!!!

PUCK CHASE: Coquitlam Chiefs’ Daniel Miller, left, stickhandles past Port Coquitlam C2 Punishers’ Landon O’Donnell during atom hockey action in PoCo.

For her first all-star game, Port Coquitlam’s Reaghan Chadwick is hoping just to have some fun. A standout rookie winger with the Fraser Valley Phantom of the B.C. AAA Female Midget Hockey League, Chadwick was one of 40 players selected for the big game, which goes today, 6:45 p.m. at the Coquitlam Sports Centre. Chadwick, 15, is in her first year of female hockey, after playing the past nine seasons alongside the boys. A year ago she was a member of the PoCo rep A bantam squad. “I’m really excited to be picked,” said Chadwick. “The highlight of the year so far is how great my team is. The Phantom are a great group of people and I really like playing with them.” The October female midget player of the month, Chadwick enters the all-star game with nine goals and nine assists in 13 games — good for third overall in league scoring.

A multisport athlete who last year was named Riverside’s Grade 9 girls athlete of the year for her volleyball and basketball expoits, Chadwick has played hockey since the age of five. In lacrosse, she has made the provincial peewee zone team as well as Team B.C.’s midget squad. “She enjoys it all,” remarked proud mom Renee. “At this age and with the commitment involved, hockey is her choice.” Down the road the keen forward is hoping to attract an on-ice scholarship opportunity. “I kind of describe myself as a hard worker,” the teenager said. Joining her on Team White is Phantom teammate and Coquitlam native Katherine Kovacs, who has posted five goals and two assists over 13 games, and Vancouver Fusion’s Kiley Fisher, a 17-year-old PoCo native. Team Blue includes Coquitlam’s Natasha Panahi, who skates for the Fusion. The 15-year-old forward has seven goals and two helpers over 11 games.

Late rally falls short for Ravens

Another big hole and another good rally. For the second time in a row, the rally was a little too late for a happy ending for the Terry Fox senior boys basketball team. Facing the No. 1-ranked Burnaby South Rebels, Fox nearly erased a 24-point gap over the final two quarters before falling 97-89 in an exhibition test on Tuesday. “We were just tragic in the first half,” said Fox coach Rich Chambers. “But in the second half we played with a lot of spirit and intensity. It was just too little, too late.” Although digging a hole early has been the trend to start, Chambers anticipates his players will convert these lessons as the schedule gets busy in the coming weeks. “We probably gave them 25 points on turnovers, and most of them were straight layups for them,” said Chambers. Scott Hind finished with 28 points for Fox,

including five treys. Bret Macdonald chipped in 24 points, while Ryan Sclater added 14.

Terry Fox senior Ravens’ Cam Canales was named the AAA B.C. Offensive MVP this week. The Grade 12 quarterback has piloted his team into this weekend’s B.C. championship final against Vancouver College. Canales completed 28 of 42 pass attempts over five league games, for 593 yards. Nine of those completions were for touchdowns, while he served up just one interception. He also carried the ball 44 times for 436 yards, including seven majors. Named to the offensive all-star team were Fox running back Jacob Patko and lineman Bubba Bordignon. On defence, linemen Jacob Nylund and Jared Soll joined defensive back Ben Sharpe, and Centennial DB Bobby Pospischil.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Cancer June 21-July 22: Start NO new projects, tasks, nor relationships before Dec. 30. Guard against mistakes, be prepared for delays. Use this week to finish ongoing ventures, then keep an eye, the rest of December, on people or opportunities returning from the past. Relationships intensify into January – and romance plays a song! A hectic work phase ends Tuesday – life grows easier. A powerful, lucky career, business phase will begin in late January: rest now, so you’ll be energetic then. Though little things stall, big things march ahead. Mysteries intrigue Thursday/ Friday. Love wins, Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start nothing new before Dec. 30. Stick with ongoing projects and relationships, or those returning from the past. (An old flame might be coming, but won’t appear until late December.) All month, your home life glows with affection and peace. It’s a great time to finish decoration projects begun in the past. Be alert on the job and around equipment: mistakes, confusion are quite possible. DON’T buy tools, machines, TVs, etc. Romance, pleasure, beauty and a general creative, speculative and winning streak fill the weeks ahead. Exciting meetings Thursday-Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A period of delay, indecision, mistakes and missed meetings begins Friday, and lasts through Dec. 29. During this phase, don’t start significant new projects of any kind. An old flame might return – but only briefly, as the weeks ahead tend toward endings rather than beginnings. It’s more likely that you’ll chase an ongoing love. In either case, romance brings talk, intimacy and intensity! Communications and travel will be gratifying and affectionate. This week, finish tasks. Sunday/Monday set the tone for the month: home, security, family, property. Tackle chores Thursday/Friday.

Aries March 21 - April 19: Mellow times, understanding, a bigger world view, love – these float toward you all week, especially Sunday/Monday. So do cultural involvements, social rituals, higher education, far travel, legal affairs, media, insurance and intellectual endeavours. Friday begins three weeks of backward motion in these areas, and in career, so finish things up now – don’t begin anything new before Dec. 30. Paradoxically, just as your daily life slows down, your hopes and plans for the future begin to clear and form. Tackle ambitions, duties Tuesday/Wednesday. Happiness, delight, friends Thursday/Friday! Taurus April 20-May 20: You’re wading into life’s mysteries, into financial, sexual and health depths. This could be a rather rocky or surprising ride, Taurus, so go slow, don’t expect much, and be wary of commitment. Events and plans begin to meet delays, indecision and backward directions Friday through Dec. 29. Use this week to finish up “hanging” tasks, to gather loose threads – start nothing new before Dec. 30. A former opportunity might return: judge it on its merits: if good, go ahead. Now to early January, others treat you very affectionately. Show ambition (without commitment) Thursday/Friday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Work goes well all December; co-workers show affection. You’re approaching an investment,big life change,or intimate commitment, but it’s delayed because you need to “revise” a relationship. (The other party might force revision.) Good – otherwise you’d build on a false, flimsy or misaligned base. Applies to both money and love. All these – big changes, sexual bonding, investments, etc. – will flow in more naturally and healthily in January. Use this week to finish up tasks, projects – a period of delay, mistakes and indecision occurs Friday to Dec. 29. Start nothing new.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new before Dec. 30. Mistakes, confusion and delays affect new projects until then. Focus on past and ongoing links, ventures. Your money picture is favourable all December – but don’t buy anything significant, including clothes.You might be called back to a security or family issue. Christmas will likely involve travel to old haunts – and nostalgia. Make arrangements, buy tickets now, as unavailability begins soon. If you meet an “ex” this month, it will likely only confirm “the end.” You’ll be busy but happy. Romance, a winning streak come Thursday/Friday! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Finish rather than initiate relationships, projects, tasks and obligations this week – and the next three. A period of delays, mistakes and indecision starts Friday, lasting to Dec. 30. You’re favoured in money now, especially Sunday/Monday, but avoid big new purchases all month. You’re vibrant, your charms glow, you’ll have a month of “good hair days.” You’ll be very busy with communications, details, paperwork and travel – but keep an eye on more private or hidden factors, feelings that are just below the surface: these might conflict with the messages you send. Romance Saturday? Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and optimism are boundless now! But don’t start anything new and important before Dec. 30. Especially avoid important purchases. Do all your Christmas shopping as early as possible: this Monday to Wednesday is best. Despite your high charisma and personal “clout” this month, your private world, your inner self, glow with a peaceful happiness. The government benefits you. Your monetary hopes centre on someone older or younger, through 2012 – an important project is brewing; be patient. Arrive “in person” Monday. Home sweet home Saturday.

Dec. 5 - Dec. 11 Capricorn Dec.22-Jan.19:Rest,lielow,contemplate your plans – and the meaning of life, love, spirit. Your energy and judgment falter, but your determination and sexual charisma are high all month. Don’t let this combination lead you into error. Start nothing important before Dec. 30 – mistakes, indecision, second thoughts and delays are rife. Instead, protect and nurture ongoing projects and relationships, and reprise those from the past. Your social side returns – someone affectionate “watches out” for you. Accept private invitations. Your money luck rises briefly Thursday/Friday. Call, travel Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: On the one hand, wishes come true now, social delights arrive, flirtations and light love hover around you, your popularity rises, and entertainment’s everywhere. On the other hand, this is a poor time, through Dec. 29, to start any new projects or relationships. So protect your work life from delays, mistakes and misunderstood communications all month, double-check and have a “Plan B.” But once you do this, charge into leisure! Avoid gossip, loose lips and dangerous places. All these apply all month. Sunday/Monday are happy. Rest midweek. You shine Thursday/Friday! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Finish rather than start projects this week. A period of confusion, indecision, mistakes and delays begins Friday, lasting through Dec. 29. It will particularly affect your social, career and “future plans” areas. In these, a former person or opportunity might return – if so, luck favours taking it/him/her up again. Love relationships that are kept light can be hot, sensual, but lack the sweetness required for durability. Letting a relationship become profound will supply that sweet affection. Be ambitious Sunday/Monday. Rest Thursday/Friday. You burst with energy Saturday! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
