Is Coquitlam pushing MMA out of the city? John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Some of Metro Vancouver’s most wellknown fight promoters are alleging that the City of Coquitlam is overstepping its boundaries in trying to eliminate amateur mixed martial arts events in Coquitlam. West Coast Promotions founder Manny Sobral told The NOW Wednesday that officials within City Hall are exerting pressure on reps from the Red Robinson Show Theatre to no longer accept amateur fight cards after Feb. 18, despite the fact that the city has no legislative authority to do so. “The city has given the Great Canadian Gaming Corp. an ultimatum that if they [keep booking amateur fights], they’re not going to be happy with them — even though it’s legal,” said Sobral, who wouldn’t specify if the ultimatum came from elected officials or city staff.

Because there is no governing body for amateur mixed martial arts (MMA) fights in Canada, a promoter doesn’t need a municipality’s blessing before scheduling an evening of fights. In the case of pro fights — when fighters are paid — an independent authority is established to lay out rules around fighter safety and compensation. But because of that lack of an amateur regulatory body, municipalities don’t have the ability to cancel amateur fight cards. “They don’t have the ability, but they can influence. I think they’re trying to use their influence,” said Neil Pope, an event planner with West Coast Promotions. “They’re not telling the casino that they can’t have amateur MMA, because they can’t. They’ve expressed an opinion that they would not like to see this in their city.” Four amateur fight cards have taken place at the Red Robinson Show Theatre since last April, and West Coast Promotions put on their

first fight in Coquitlam on Dec. 3, 2010. Pope estimated that more than 1,000 people showed up — significantly more than most, if not all, Coquitlam Adanac or Express games by comparison. “The key people from the city itself, we’ve invited them to come out and see everything from A to Z … just so they can get a sense of how a properly run MMA show can go, and they have been unwilling to do that,” Pope said. The next, and potentially last, West Coast Promotions event is scheduled for Feb. 18 in Coquitlam. Sobral said he’s been advised by casino staff that it will likely be the company’s final amateur card in Coquitlam, due to the pressure placed on casino staff coming out of City Hall. Howard Blank, Great Canadian Casino’s vicepresident of media, entertainment and responsible gaming, declined an interview with The NOW. Mayor Richard Stewart did not return

calls before deadlines. Coquitlam council does have a committee — the Coquitlam Athletic Commission — to govern the rules and guidelines around professional boxing fights. Those rules set out specifications for everything from insurance and liability policies, to the necessary amount of medical personnel required for a prize fight. Coun. Brent Asmundson, who chairs the commission, said council made a decision last year not to extend the athletic commission’s governing authority beyond boxing and into MMA. Instead, the city sent a letter to the province asking for a B.C.-wide regulatory body to be set up. And while Asmundson said he’s in full support of the sport of MMA, he did confirm that council has sent a message to casino staffers to stop holding MMA fights until that regulatory  CONTINUED ON PAGE 4, see COUNCIL.

Trailer fire leaves one man dead Simone Blais sblais@thenownews.com They knew the glow in the distance was a bad omen. Coquitlam Fire and Rescue Chief Tony Delmonico said crews immediately knew there was a job waiting for them at the Wildwood Mobile Home Park shortly after the fire truck left the hall on Wednesday. “En route, crews could see the glow in the sky so they knew they had a working fire,” he said. A neighbour in the park called 911 just before 6 a.m. to report a growing fire in a nearby trailer. One ladder company and three engines were dispatched, and firefighters arrived to find the windows broken on a trailer and flames shooting out from the openings and the roof. “Initial crews went into fast attack mode, so one does a primary search while other crews set up a water supply and extinguish the flames,” Delmonico said, adding that firefighters made quick work of dousing the flames. One man was found at the trailer, and he was transported to hospital by paramedics. He died as a result of his injuries. The 65-year-old’s identity was not released pending notification of next of kin. Delmonico said fire officials have wrapped up their investigation into the cause, but are waiting for Coquitlam RCMP arson investigators to finish reviewing the file. “At this time we have no indication of foul play,” RCMP Const. Kristina Biro said in a news release Wednesday. “And right now nothing about this fire looks suspicious. It seems it was just a tragic accident.” Delmonico said the home received substantial damage. “It’s almost damaged to the point where they won’t be able to save much of the structure,” he

A park resident called 911 around 6 a.m. on Wednesday to report this mobile home fire. said, adding that the quick response helped keep the fire to just one unit. “Damage to this mobile home was contained. The adjacent mobile homes weren’t touched.” That wasn’t the case in November of 2008, when another fire broke out in the park. During that incident, some residents awoke to cries of “fire” and emerged from their homes to see two trailers, a shed and a telephone pole all burning.

Delmonico said firefighters were concerned of a repeat scenario on Wednesday, given how easily such fires can spread. “Depending on the distance of the buildings, it can migrate to other structures. In this case, crews knocked it down quick enough,” he said. No firefighters were injured in the fire. The cause will not be released until at least next week.

New structures to house full-day K students Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com The modulars are moving in. School District 43 is making space for 11 modular classrooms in preparation for another influx of full-day kindergarten students in September. The province is paying for the $4.6million project, which will bring one modular unit each to Lord Baden Powell, Alderson, Mountain Meadows and Riverview Park elementaries, plus two units to Rochester and Eagle Ridge, and three to Glenayre. Gary Holtz, District 43’s assistant director of capital projects and planning, said the 120-square-metre units could remain in place for the next 40 years. The structures will include vandal-proof windows, storage space, washrooms and PA systems. They all need to be ready Sept. 6 for the second phase of full-day kindergarten. “It’s really coming down to the wire, and everybody’s working hard to make it happen,” Holtz said.

Secretary Treasurer Rick Humphreys stressed that the new modulars are different from existing school portables. “These are not portables,” he told the school board Tuesday. “These are permanent additions, permanent structures, which means they have been working with architects to get them situated on properties.” Superintendent Tom Grant expressed concern about future space constraints, although there will be room to accommodate students this fall. “Our big fear is what do we do … the following year when schools are full, the modulars are full and we have to introduce four-year-olds?” he asked. “What’s that going to look like?” Construction is also underway at Aspenwood and Bramblewood elementaries to add new classrooms through a $4.4-million provincially funded initiative. Aspenwood will get three new classrooms for full-day kindergarten plus three for elementary classes, adding

Council ‘does not support MMA in Coquitlam’ body is established. “Until that’s done, [council] does not support MMA in Coquitlam,” Asmundson said. “The feeling is with amateur, is that it’s more of an end-around to the professional part of the sport and that the casino is sort of using that, or is being used by that. It sort of flies in the face of what council has said.” Despite not having an official sanctioning body, ad hoc committees have been sprouting up across the province to try and bridge the gap. One such body is the Mixed Martial Arts Association of B.C. (MMABC), and its five

founding members have more than 50 years of collective experience in combat sports. “We really saw a need for the creation of an association that could act as a provincial sporting organization in the model of things like Boxing BC or Judo BC — amateur sporting associations that speak for them and help regulate and control the sport. That was something that MMA just didn’t have,” said MMABC chair Bill Mahood, who has fought with the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Strikeforce fighting promotions. Mahood’s organization sets up parameters around amateur fights that include shorter rounds, heavier gloves, less lethal moves and

no elbow or knee strikes to the head. The group also lays out the groundwork for how many doctors and ambulance attendants are at fights, on top of taking care of blood testing and pre-fight medicals. As for the suggestion that political interference is at play in the Coquitlam context, Mahood characterized the situation as “really unfortunate.” “They don’t take the time to actually under-

‘Learning without boundaries’ focus of school district jmcfee@thenownews.com Learning without boundaries. That’s School District 43’s latest term for the next era of education. With input from 4,500 community members, the school district coined this dream statement, which focuses on improving success in life for all. Supt. Tom Grant said this new phrase refers to geography, technology and the power of relationships with students. “It’s interesting whenever you hear people’s impres-

sions of where we’re headed and what it looks like,” Grant told the school board Tuesday night. “I think we jump to the gloss right away and I don’t think you hear about the fact that no matter where we end up, we still have teaching, learning, assessing and presenting, collaborating.” The school district will continue to work on its vision over the next few years, while also adapting to change, Grant said. “I think this district does a great job of acknowledging what works, figuring out what could get better and then moving forward and finding ways to incorporate that into

Meanwhile, Grant explained that the Ministry of Education is promoting its version of the term “personalized learning” as the next era of education. “The Coquitlam response actually has been years in the making,” he said. “We’re going to look at a different approach from most other districts.”

They don’t seem to be considered with liability in a situation like that.” Tickets for the Feb. 18 fight, dubbed Seeing Red 2, can be purchased from Ticketmaster for between $29 and $49.

Fin Donnelly, MP for New Westminster-Coquitlam and Port Moody, is endorsing a national transit strategy. A private member’s bill, introduced by Trinity-Spadina MP Olivia Chow, calls for a permanent investment plan to support public transit. The bill encourages federal funding with involvement from all levels of government. “I think it’s significant because it relates to what’s needed for the Evergreen Line,” Donnelly told The NOW Thursday. Donnelly is also supporting a bill that would make employer-provided transit, carpooling and cycling benefits tax free.

Besides moral concerns regarding how anyone could order an employee to do this and how any employee could follow through are questions such as: • Why did WorkSafeBC not report this incident to authorities? When possible criminal behaviour is involved, reporting should be mandatory and immediate. • What was the SPCA’s role in this situation? • Why are there so many loopholes in Canada’s anti-cruelty laws? Attempts have been made for years to strengthen these laws and bring them into line with public views. Maybe this incident will be the one that forces politicians to act. • If sled dogs are killed when they’re no longer “needed,” should this activity be outlawed? What do you think should be done?

••• Members of the Port Moody Police Department would like to express our deepest condolences to the members of the Toronto Police Service, who lost a valued member of their department last month. Sgt. Ryan Russell, an 11-year veteran, was killed on duty when he was hit by a stolen snowplow. He will be greatly missed by his colleagues and the community he policed. His wife, Christine, said her husband looked up to his father, who was a retired Toronto police officer. She also said she found great comfort when she looked at their two-yearold son, Nolan, because she saw so much of Ryan in him. Until next time.

In all likelihood, designers for Issa, the Londonbased fashion label that created Middleton’s dress, are now raking in the dough and planning their early retirement. Such fantastic profits in a time of economic crappiness are due, I think, to paparazzi coverage of the royals, which has made them wellliked and relatable (er, as relatable as a future king and queen may be). And If I’m not mistaken, the saying goes: “True friends stick with you through good times and bad.” Don’t these wise words apply to paparazzi as well? After all, they were literally there when Britney Spears was dominating the music scene, and they were there when she opted for baldness during her well-documented 2007 meltdown. Doesn’t that prove that paparazzi are merely misunderstood citizens with honourable intentions? Britney must think so, since she shacked up with one of them. Anyhow, the way I see it, paparazzi have given us the ultimate gift — comic relief from days spent thinking. Who wants to read material that makes you think too much when you’ve spent all day thinking all those thoughts and surely don’t want to think some more? I rest my case.

FSA controversy continues Re: “Ad from teachers ‘disturbing,’” letter to the editor, Wednesday, Jan. 26. The content of Ms. Klym’s letter, particularly her allegation that teachers are encouraging parents to lie, is deeply insulting to all the Coquitlam teachers who persevere against incredible government cutbacks to educate the school children in their care to a level that is ranked in the top 10 worldwide. The Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) Administration Instructions 2011 manual states: “Principals may excuse a student in the event of a family emergency, a lengthy illness or other extenuating circumstances.” If Ms. Klym feels that these are not appropriate reasons for a parent to excuse their child from writing the FSA exam, then her issue is with the Ministry of Education, not the Coquitlam Teachers’ Association. Far from asking parents to lie, the Coquitlam Teachers’ Association is asking parents to be very honest and take a stand on whether they wish their son or daughter to write an assessment whose results are used so inappropriately. It is not that the FSA, in and of itself, is not worthwhile — it could be. It is the purpose for which the data is used which is so inappropriate; that is, the Fraser

Institute’s practice of ranking schools by FSA results, a practice which punishes children growing up in poverty and other vulnerable groups such as immigrants and refugee children by labelling their schools as low achievers. However in April, some Grade 4 teachers in Coquitlam schools will administer an international assessment, the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS), to a sample of Grade 4 students. Unlike the FSAs, the PIRLS assessment is administered every five years rather than To The annually, and to a sample of students rather than all. In short, PIRLS, like other national and international assessments, uses more or less the model that the teachers in the province of B.C. are seeking for the FSA. PIRLS questionnaires are administered to students, parents, teachers and principals in order to better understand factors that may be associated with reading performance. As a result, the reports from PIRLS assessments are much more informative and thoughtprovoking than the two-page statistical reports from the FSA. Teresa Grandinetti President Coquitlam Teachers’ Association ••• There is really just one reason

for the ongoing controversy over the foundation skills assessment (FSA). It is that the teachers’ union is opposed to the use — by any organization or individual — of any school-level student assessment results to publicly rate schools. My reading of the 13-year history of the FSA and the public statements and actions of union officials during this period supports this suggestion. Why does the union object to this use of student assessment results? It does so because such ratings enable anyone to compare schools on Editor a student performance measure that might be construed to reflect on the effectiveness of its union members. There is, therefore, one critical question that should be asked and debated before any action is taken regarding the FSA: As a society, do we believe that the public should be able to compare schools that are funded in whole or in part by taxpayers on the basis of student performance data of any kind? I believe the teachers’ union would answer in the negative. But if the union were to surprise me and respond in the positive, then we need a thorough public discussion of this question.

Does this mean politicians won’t post election signs? Re: “Port Moody sign bylaw ‘the height of foolishness,’” letter to the editor, Friday, Jan. 28. May I suggest that Mr. Peacock think again about wanting Port Moody to change its sign bylaw to allow temporary signs in that fair city. With no temporary signs allowed, Port Moody residents will, when civic elections are held, be envied by all of us who live in the surrounding communities. They will have no unsightly temporary election signs to mar their views. No reputable civic politician would stoop so low as to place temporary election signs while not allowing arts groups and farmers markets the same privilege. Allan Liggins Coquitlam Editor’s note: The City of Port Moody has a sign permit approval process that those wanting to post temporary signs must abide by. While temporary signs have been posted in the city, some groups have complained about the approval process.

Photography exhibit captures elusive moments

C

apitalizing on being in the right place at the right time, on top of having a keen photographic eye, Chris Collacott will be the subject of a month-long display at the Port Moody Public Library. An award-winning photographer whose works were showcased in Vancouver during the 2010 John Kurucz Winter Olympics, the Port Moody resident specializes in ultra high-resolution landscape, cityscape and urban architecture photography. Collacott’s works will go up in the library on Saturday, and more of his photos can be seen at www.avision.ca.

Arts in Brief

PoCo resident makes the cut

Port Coquitlam resident Alisa Balogh has been selected as one of the final 11 performers looking to earn the top billing in this year’s Variety’s Got Talent showcase. The 18-year-old was named as one of the last 11 standing out of hundreds of applicants last Saturday, and will vie for the No. 1 spot today (Friday) in front of a live audience at Coquitlam’s Red Robinson Show Theatre. Once a winner is selected by a panel of celebrity and industry judges, that person will perform live on the Variety Show of Hearts Telethon on Saturday, Feb. 12. To track Balogh’s progress, log on to www. variety.bc.ca/talent.htm.

Band needs votes by Monday

Having already forged their way into the top 10, a Port Coquitlam-based teen band is now looking for enough votes to push them into the final three. Consisting of Riverside students Tyler Shaw, Elizabeth Boey, Hans Seo, Luke McKenzie and Nic Chan, the alternative rock band All the Way is vying for votes ahead of the Monday, Feb. 7 deadline for Youthink Magazine’s annual B.C.’s Best Teen Band contest. Should they get the nod, the group will be pitted against two other bands in a winnertake-all, battle-of-the-bands performance where judges will crown B.C.’s best teen band later this month. For more information, see http:// bandcontest.youthink.ca/all-the-way.

Garbage gets artistic makeover

Port Moody is looking to add to its rolling fleet of public art, but before doing so, the City of the Arts needs to find the right artists for the job. That’s why a deadline of Monday, Feb. 10 has been set for artists interested in creating vehicle wrap designs for two of the city’s automated garbage trucks. Five city trucks have already got the public art treatment, including the playground works truck, the horticultural truck, the cultural services van and two of the four automated

It’s a great way to bring public art to every street and community in the city.” Prospective artists are asked to submit their ideas via e-mail to ktracey@portmoody.ca by 4 p.m. on Feb. 10. A full call for qualifications can be viewed at www.portmoody.ca.

Chamber players trumpet love

Themes of passion, love and nature’s beauty will be given the musical treatment Feb. 12 at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre. Headed up by the Quiring Chamber Players trio, the evening will feature a program highlighted by works by György Ligeti, Avro Pärt and Luciano Berio, among others. The core members of the trio include Angela Goddard (violin), Rosemary O’Connor (piano) and Reg Quiring (viola), though the chamber players will be joined Feb. 12 by violinist Andrew Dawes and cellist Shih-Lin Chen. Tickets range in price between $20 and $38 and are available by calling 604-927-6555 or logging on to www.evergreenculturalcentre.ca.

Folk, pop and everything else

The locally based Felice Women’s Choir will spread the feeling of love in the air one day before Cupid’s arrival. The choir will perform Feb. 13 as part of Port Coquitlam’s coffee concerts series, and the day’s repertoire, led by conductor and music director Hyun Jung Kim, will reflect a theme of love to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Slated from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m at the Terry Fox Theatre, the show costs $10 for adults, $5 for students, and children under the age of 12 get in for free. After, the community is invited to take part in a songwriting workshop that will be professionally recorded and used at various city events throughout the year. The workshop will serve as a platform for community members to get together and write a song about the city’s community spirit. The free workshop is slated from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Terry Fox Theatre as well.

Hearing Loss and Speech Development in Children Hearing and speech are essential tools to learn, play and develop social skills. Parents are often the first people to sense that their child has a hearing problem. It is important to recognize the signs of hearing loss as early as possible because children learn to communicate by imitating the sounds they hear. If they have a hearing loss that is undetected and untreated, they can miss much of the speech and language around them. This results in delayed speech/language development, social problems and academic difficulties. The following questions may guide you in detecting a concern with your child’s hearing, speech and/or language: Does your baby: Birth to 4 months: 1. Wake or stir at loud sounds? 2. Startle at loud noises? 3. Calm at the sound of a familiar voice? 4. Respond to your voice (smiles or coos)? 4 to 9 months: 1. Turn eyes toward familiar sounds? 2. Smile when spoken to? 3. Notice rattles and other sound-making toys? 4. Cry differently for different needs? 5. Make babbling sounds? 6. Seem to understand simple word/hand motions such as “bye-bye” with a wave? 9 to 15 months: 1. Babble a lot of different sounds? 2. Respond to his/her name? 3. Respond to changes in your tone of voice? 4. Say “ma-ma” or “da-da”? 5. Understand simple requests? 6. Repeat some sounds you make? 7. Use his/her voice to attract attention?

SHARE’s Speech LanguageTeam, Heidi Coates, MSc., RSLP, Keeley Hibbert, MSc., RSLP, Meaghan McLeod, MSc., RSLP, LeanneTwaddle., MHSc., RSLP and missing is Holly Plunkett, MSC., RSLP

15 to 24 months: 1. Point to familiar objects when they are named? 2. Listen to stories, songs and rhymes? 3. Follow simple commands? 4. Use several different words? 5. Point to body parts when asked? 6. Name common objects? 7. Put two or more words together? Does your child (age 2 and up): 1. Turn up the volume of theTV excessively high? 2. Respond inappropriately to questions? 3. Not reply when you call him/her? 4. Watch others to imitate what they are doing? 5. Have articulation problems or speech/language delays? 6. Have problems academically? 7. Complain of earaches, ear pain or head noises? 8. Have difficulty understanding what people are saying? 9. Seem to speak differently from other children his or her age? Reference: 2011 Palo Alto Medical Foundation

Types of Hearing Loss in Children: There are two primary categories of hearing loss in children, congenital (present at birth) and acquired (occurring after birth). It is routine practice in most hospitals to perform hearing tests for babies shortly after delivery.This assures early intervention in the event that the newborn exhibits any signs of hearing loss. Possible causes of acquired hearing loss: Untreated middle-ear infections Other infections, such as meningitis, mumps, measles or whooping cough Perforation of the eardrum Excessive noise, such as fireworks or loud music Frequently, acquired hearing loss in young children is temporary, and can be restored through medical treatment or minor surgery. If you have concerns that your child may have a hearing loss, talk to your family doctor, who can check for possible medical causes and/or refer for further assessment. Families in theTri-Cities can access hearing testing for their preschool-aged children through Fraser Health’s Speech and Hearing Clinic in New Westminster (604-777-6855). Speech-Language Pathologists at SHARE (Coquitlam) and Fraser Health (Port Moody and Port Coquitlam) help children develop communication skills. If you have concerns about your child’s speech development, call our intake line at 604-525-8242 and we will direct you to the appropriate service.

Series designed for caregivers of people with dementia A series of seminars at Coquitlam’s Glen Pine Pavilion is aimed at helping caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. “For family caregivers, the commitment can last many years, and brings with it high stress levels and illness,” explains Dorothy Leclair, the Coquitlam regional support and education co-ordinator for the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C., which is hosting the series. Topics include: • Understanding dementia — Participants will get basic information on dementia and its impact on individuals, caregivers, families and the community. They will also review the progression of the disease and approaches for meeting the challenges. • Understanding communication — Information on how communication is affected by the disease will be shared, and participants will explore effective ways of facilitating com-

munication and providing support to persons with dementia. • Understanding behaviour — Participants will learn how to understand behaviour as a form of communication, as well as strategies for determining what a person with dementia might be trying to communicate, in hopes of decreasing the occurrence of disturbing behaviours and responding in supportive ways. • Planning for the future — Information about early planning, and a review of strategies for ensuring the person with dementia’s wishes are honoured, will be explored. • Self-care for the caregivers — Participants will gain a better understanding of how certain messages, demands or beliefs can contribute to stress and burnout. Sessions run from 9 to 11 a.m. on Tuesdays (Feb. 15, March 1, 15 and 29) at 1200 Glen Pine Crt. To register, call 604-298-0780 or email dleclair@alzheimerbc.org.

Practise precision when using knives

A

s the final entry of a three-part series on cutting, this column will focus on techniques. If you missed either of my previous columns on knives or cutting boards, please e-mail me at dez@chefdez.com and I will be more than happy to send them to you. Now that you are informed about how to start your knife collection and which cutting boards to use, it is time to focus on the act of cutting itself. Nothing is better than having a personal one-on-one lesson on cutting, but I will try to do my best in written form to communicate some basic tips to get you started. When holding a chef’s knife, it is important to have it balanced properly in your hand to reduce fatigue and improve control. To find this balance point, carefully place approximately the middle of the flat-side surface of the knife’s blade on your extended index finger a couple of inches over a cutting board. Slowly move the knife so that your finger travels up or down the blade, to find the position where it is completely balanced by your finger. At that point, place the thumb of the same hand on the opposite side of the blade and wrap your remaining fingers around the handle. On a good quality knife, this balance point will be approximately on the first inch of where the blade

extends from the handle. Welcome the chance to This is usually because the practise your knife skills with knife has a full tang, and the every opportunity and effiweight of this full tang in the ciency will come naturally. handle offsets the weight of the remaining steel in the Dear Chef Dez: knife’s extended blade.

Hyundai started with a sharp-looking new design for the Elantra, which the company calls “fluidic sculpture,” and added more interior room, advanced safety, better performance,

even better fuel efficiency and heated rear seats. One thing that hasn’t changed is the Elantra’s base price ($15,849), but considering all the upgrades, the new car is undoubtedly better value. Top of that list would be the new vehicle stability management system that takes electronic stability control to a higher level, by adding steering management to this life-saving active safety feature.

Don’t push your luck: always replace oil fill cap pan and get drained out during your next oil change, or

it would be caught by the oil screen or oil filter.

TOM: So this appears to be your lucky week, Steve. You

might want to go out and buy a few lottery tickets.

Click and Clack Tom and Ray Magliozzi Dear Tom and Ray: I recently drove about a 1,000 miles without my oil cap. It’s a 2005 Toyota Sequoia, and I was off-road for about 10 days at the same time. When I got home, no oil cap! (Human error all the way.) I checked the oil, and it was good all the way to the full mark, and there’s no oil on top of the engine, or even on the underside of the hood. As I drove, I didn’t see any drop in oil pressure or hear any weird mechanical sounds, so I’m wondering what damage (if any) I might have done to the engine, driving all that way without a cap. I am changing the oil and filter today. Thanks for your answer, and yes, it is the first time I’ve ever done that — and the last! Steve RAY: You are one lucky fellow, Steve. Mostly because of the particular car you own. TOM: On most cars these days, the oil cap is right on top of one of the valve covers. When the cap is off with the engine running, the oil blasts out of there like the last feeding blasts out of an infant who’s been tossed into the air repeatedly by his father. RAY: You would have noticed that right away because the oil spews everywhere, including onto the hot exhaust manifold, where it immediately starts to smoke. It’s a complete and utter mess. How do we know this happens? We’ve done it at the shop. TOM: And if you actually drive around with the cap off on those cars, you easily could lose enough oil to damage the engine. You can lose half of your oil that way in a matter of hours. RAY: On your vehicle, I believe the oil fill is down between the cylinder heads, which is a less lubricated part of the engine, and it’s not where the cam shafts are churning up the oil and tossing it everywhere. That’s why little to no oil was lost. TOM: And it’s unlikely that anything got into the oil fill when you were driving offroad. You would have to be extremely unlucky to have a piece of debris come up from the road and go precisely into that hole. It would be like winning a game of quarters at 50 feet. RAY: Even if anything did

Someone in the driveway is feeling a bit insecure.

Welcome

Eagle Ridge Hospital is at the very heart of our community. Whether we’ve been there before or not, we all know it’s there — open 24/7 when the need arises.

Teen volunteer links generations

Last year there were over 42,000 visits to the Eagle Ridge emergency alone — an average of over 119 visits a day. Every day. We live in a time where health authorities are stretched to capacity. Where hospitals cannot function at their best without support from their communities. That’s where foundations come in. The Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation is the conduit of this support for our community hospital. Thank you to everyone who has supported this initiative. You have supported a worthy cause. A hard-working, essential cause. A cause that has such a profound impact on so many every single day. You may not have been to Eagle Ridge Hospital for a while, but chances are someone you know or love has. Thank you

“They’ve told me they like camping too.”

“It’s like a really long conversation,” Ding says of the program. Topics include favourite holidays or musical instruments the residents played as children. Volunteers write down the residents’ responses.

When Ding delivers letters to the school, the students gather around and tell her why they think their Grand Pen Pal is the best.

“We keep their own words to show their character through the letter,” Ding adds.

indy Ding has been a teen volunteer at Eagle Ridge Hospital for more than a year and a half. She wants to make a difference, and when she noticed a void, came up with a creative idea on how to fill it. “You rarely ever see kids come to the manor to

visit,” she says. “I wanted to see how the residents would enjoy a Grand Pen Pal program and see if it would enrich their lives to communicate with kids outside of the hospital.” She approached Nestor Elementary, where staff agreed to pair Grade 4 students with manor resi-

Letters are delivered to the students, and a few reply to each resident. The students enjoy hearing from their Grand Pen Pal, and write lovely decorated letters back. Manor resident Joe Pardon smiles when asked about his letters. “I’ve told them how I went camping and how I loved my 16-foot boat during my summers,” he says.

The program has been fulfilling for both the students and the residents, and has made talking to the seniors easier for Eagle Ridge Hospital volunteers. “It is so easy to hold a conversation for 30 minutes or more now,” Ding says, adding there’s more to discuss. Ding’s Grand Pen Pal program has been so successful that another long-term care centre is looking into working with Grade 5 students at Nestor Elementary. As for Ding, her grand plans include becoming a doctor.

Friendly canine gets ‘ear time’ H

eroes can have two legs or four. They can be a great team like Cindy Morrison and canine friend Toby. Morrison is one of four crisis clinicians with the Youth Crisis Response Program, which provides clinical mental health services to children and youth aged six to 18 and their families.

some children and teens find it difficult to engage because of past abuse, trauma or a debilitating mental health issue. “His presence allows kids to form trust a lot sooner than if he was not in the room with us.”

She adopted Toby a year ago from the Pacific Assistance Dog Society, which trains canines for special placements. Toby was too laid back to be a hearing dog, and Morrison was happy when he was chosen as a match for her — happy for both her family and her career.

“Youth have commented that they want to come and see me because they want to see Toby again,” Morrison says. “It’s clear that once the kids see Toby they immediately relax and it is easier for them to open up and express their feelings to me.

“Toby is an icebreaker and gives unconditional love, especially to those kids that are defensive or stressed,” Morrison says, adding that

Toby has a calm and affectionate presence and offers a homey touch to an otherwise clinical environment.

“Sometimes kids tell me it is easier to speak with Toby about their issues than with an adult, and indeed this is what happens sometimes. Toby seems to get more ‘ear

time’ than I do. “I also believe, and it is supported with literature, that he probably decreases stress reactions and blood pressure in those youth who are highly anxious.” Over 75 per cent of the kids Morrison sees suffer from anxiety and depression. International epidemiological studies indicate that half of all lifetime cases of mental disorder begin by age 14, and three quarters begin by age 24, although they are often detected later in life. Among adults, the highest rates of mental illness are found among 18- to 24-year-olds. Last year alone, Youth Crisis Response Program clinicians provided crisis intervention, stabilization and short-term counselling to almost 550 children, teens and their families.

Patient Chintana Mah

W

ithin 24 hours of a patient entering Eagle Ridge Hospital’s high intensity rehabilitation unit (which helps victims of neurological events, brain injuries and major traumas relearn basic skills) staff meet with his or her family. “We want them to feel welcome and to make sure they know they can approach any one of us at anytime,” says

patient care co-ordinator Marsha Mullen. “We like to build that relationship with both patient and family. What if that was my brother, sister, mother or father? It’s good to put yourself in the family’s shoes.” One patient who received help from the unit’s staff is 40-year-old Chintana Mah. An established country singer in her homeland, Mah had a sudden and debilitating stroke. Doctors gave her 24 hours to live, her husband Edwin recalls. He spent those early days in the intensive care unit at Ridge Meadows Hospital to be by his wife’s side. She was unable to walk, and the only sound she could make was “t-t-t.” She arrived at Eagle Ridge Hospital a month later, and the high intensity rehab team rallied by her side. They gained her trust, and a relationship was forged.

add to dishes. Eagle Ridge Hospital has offered high intensity rehabilitation for more than two decades. Heather Mackay and Sheila Laprise have been with the unit the longest, and still find it an inspiring place to work. Both say they think of one of their colleagues, Ruth Pollock, as a hero. Pollock is an accomplished physiotherapist who is “always” there for patients, they say. Going beyond seems to hold true for the entire team. “There is nothing more satisfying than watching our patients progress through their rehabilitation,” Mullen says. Equally inspiring is seeing past patients volunteer on the unit, sharing their experiences and inspiration with those whose journeys have just begun.

Mah’s husband brought in a CD of her songs, which they played at the nurse’s station with the help of unit clerk Rebecca Direttore. There were few dry eyes on the ward. Mah made a remarkable recovery, and was able to go home. After months of focused therapy, she can walk unassisted and, while her speech remains severely affected, she was able to sing Happy Birthday to unit manager Barb Sutherland. Again, many tears were shed. Mah continues to improve, and has regained limited speech. She now has therapists visiting her home. In recent weeks, she has started using a computer mouse and is able to click on a few saved websites, expanding her world. She is also rediscovering Thai cooking, remembering a few of the special touches she used to

Sewing her way into her patients’ hearts W

hen Cheryl Webb, patient care coordinator of transitional care, heard the title of this special newspaper section, many examples of caring staff and remarkable patient recoveries came to mind — but one stood out the most.

In the transitional care unit, or TCU, patients are cared for over an extended period of time and then discharged to a residential setting or home. Nurses and staff from the unit come to know the patients and their families well. TCU members collaborate with other care providers to plan the best course of medical treatment and therapies, as well as recreational and seasonal activities.

Dianna Rastad with patient Janine Zechnert

During the holiday season, program clerk Dianna Rastad became a hero in the hearts of TCU patients. Rastad

The Transitional Care Unit or TCU has 25 beds. Patients stay on average 73 days with needs that vary and may include; convalescent time to regain strength and function , team discharge planning around alternative assisted living options and arrangements, as well as psycho/social needs and some palliative care. A current need at ERH is for an endoscopic camera system at a cost of $65,000. An endoscopic camera is a special system that attaches to an endoscope to illuminate the interior walls and passage ways of organs like the lungs, throat, urinary tract and abdominal cavity. Our surgeons can capture and store images of the organ wall, diagnose through observation and even treat or remove the affected organ tissue. ERH has 6 out of 6 OR’s operating daily to meet patient needs.

spent her spare time before the holidays sewing together little squares of fleece. These squares became beautiful quilts that now top patients’ beds at night and keep them cozy when they’re sitting in a wheelchair. Other staff members helped Rastad by wrapping the quilts up with a gift card for each TCU patient. A holiday celebration with carolling was planned, and Santa came by to hand deliver each present as staff and family members watched. Webb says the hospital is committed to excellent care, but also to the extraordinary. “It’s still our philosophy today,” she says. “It’s still being paid forward. We look after the whole person, not just the physical care they need.”

When patients were missing family most during the holidays, receiving the gift of a handmade quilt was very special, says Cheryl Webb, TCU patient care coordinator, “not just for the person receiving, but also those bearing witness.”

‘Always there offering help’ A

t 27, Mike McCann knows first-hand how important it is to regain function. He was involved in a horrific car accident a year ago and was lucky to survive. A truck clipped the car he was riding in and sent it into oncoming traffic. McCann was resuscitated at the scene. The truck didn’t stop. McCann had so many fractures: his pelvis was in several pieces and his legs, ribs, face and hands were affected. It took a heroic effort by Eagle Ridge Hospital’s orthopedic team to put him back together again. Dr. Darius Viskontas, Dr. Trevor Stone and Dr. Bert Perey continue to help him gain function.

Two months after the accident, McCann was transferred by ambulance to Eagle Ridge Hospital. Occupational therapist Diana Burgess remembers him needing a ceiling lift to be able to get from bed to chair. Within days of arriving, he had learned to move himself from one to the other. This was no easy feat for someone with so many fractures. “For a guy that had so many things being tremendously difficult, he always had a positive attitude,” Burgess recalls. She customized many wheelchairs for him so that as his function changed, his chair changed with him. “I would try to check in on

him every day,” Burgess says. McCann was a very independent person, and she kept her eye on him. She can laugh now as she remembers him going past her in the hallway and popping wheelies in his chair. She told him he would give her grey hairs, but adds that he has “a really great spirit — he has a big infectious smile.” Going beyond expectations is heroic to McCann, who says Burgess “was always there offering help. Always taking an extra step to help me.” McCann has been home for a few months now, but continues his journey back to health, looking forward to the future.

Occupational therapists help patients regain everyday functions needed for basic living. A special wheelchair currently needed for patients in the occupational therapy department costs $12,000. Ceiling lifts, which cost $8,500 each, are also urgently needed for every patient room at the hospital. Photo: Diana Burgess, occupational therapist

Say Goodbye to pain. Experience the benefits of Laser Light Therapy. HOW IT WORKS

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING

LOW INTENSITY LASER THERAPY (LILT) is a highly

ACL TEAR: I had swelling in my left knee and a torn ACL. It got to the point that I couldn’t even straighten out my knee. But after treatments of LASER therapy, my knee is feeling a lot better and I’m not having pain in it. – D. F. (Age 16) ARTHRITIS: I was sceptical of LASER Therapy at first, but I could no longer walk, bend over, sit or stand too long without pain. I limped into Dr. Bennett’s clinic and after 2 treatments felt almost complete relief, and after 4, danced at my grandson’s wedding. After 10 treatments I was completely back to normal with no pain and fully functioning. – A. Raedman (Age 74) NECK AND SHOULDER PAIN: On day one, it was difficult to move my head all the way left and right and now I can. I could not lift my left arm above my head and now I can. THE PAIN IS GONE! If I hurt myself again, I will treat the pain with LASER Therapy. – Dennis Moore (Age 63)

sophisticated, non-toxic and non-invasive therapy that uses light energy from both superluminous and laser diodes. When placed in contact with the skin this energy safely penetrates the tissue. At an intracellular level, the light is transformed into biochemical energy. Cells use this energy to repair and regenerate themselves, enhancing the body’s natural healing process.

IN MANY INSTANCES LILT IS THE TREATMENT OF CHOICE FOR: • Tendonitis

• Bulging & Herniated Discs

• Arthritis

• Ligament & Tendon Tears

• Spinal Stenosis

• Repetitive Stress Injuries

• Bursitis

More space for passengers  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 16.

The new Elantras should arrive at dealerships soon. look and feel. While providing more passenger space, Elantra claims best-in-class standard fuel economy, primarily due to a new 1.8-litre engine that’s mated to a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Hyundai claims a combined fuel economy rating of just 5.9 L/100 km, which is an 18per-cent improvement over the car’s predecessor. Powertrain performance is comparable within the class, and the six-speed manual would be my preferred transmission choice. Not that there’s anything wrong with the optional automatic ($2,200), and it has a manual selection mode, but the drive position shift pattern is conservative (presumably for fuel economy reasons). A sport shift mode would be nice, but

it’s not provided. Buyers can also get a wide range of premium features, such as a proximity key with push button start and immobilizer, power sunroof, one touch driver’s window and leather seating surfaces as they move up the trim level ladder. In addition to those heated rear seats (standard on GL and higher trim levels), Bluetooth hands-free phone connection with voice recognition, touch-screen navigation with rear-view camera and IPod and USB inputs are all available. Production of the new Elantra has already begun at Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama and should now be at or arriving soon at Hyundai dealers in B.C.

recover or keep better control of an Elantra in a potentially dangerous situation. Examples would be situations where two wheels are off the pavement or on a different surface, or when the driver is forced to make a sudden lane change or take a turn tighter than expected. The new Elantra is very aerodynamic with an exceptionally low 0.28 drag co-efficient and a shape that gives the illusion of constant motion. The slippery styling also pays dividends in terms of low wind noise and improved fuel economy at highway speeds. “In some ways, the low aerodynamic numbers are a happy accident. Our main goal was to do a very sleek design. If you have a shape that looks aerodynamic — chances are it is aerodynamic,” said Cedric D’Andre, the lead designer of the new Elantra. A little longer (by 25 mm) than its predecessor, the fifth-generation Elantra also has a wheel base that’s 50mm longer. This translates to expanded cabin space on the inside and it’s now on par with a mid-sized sedan. It’s a modern and sophisticated interior that comes with a cloth-like pillar trim that’s made of fibrous tissue and volcanic rock. It’s an ecologically sensitive material with a first-class

Mulch to keep clover at bay “Last year I lost the battle with clover in my vegetable garden and while it’s been largely removed, roots and all, I know it will return. I have considered planting parsley everywhere to choke the clover out of sunlight. Any advice would be much appreciated.” Rob Dattilo Ladner

ing with that might be doable. Since Sea Soil is sold in bags (not bulk) by most nurseries, mulching a large garden can be expensive. Did you know clover is actually a soil builder because it fixes nitrogen from the air, then moves it through its stems and roots down into the soil? Some organic gardeners use clover as an organic fertilizer, sowing it in fall and composting it or digging it in (deeply) in spring. About planting parsley: a few people do grow massive amounts of parsley for making pesto either alone or mixed with basil. But you need to know that parsley shades out vegetable seedlings just as Branching Out thickly as weeds do.

If your yard has a lawn, you could try mulching your vegetable garden with grass clippings. If you need a larger quantity, non-composting friends with lawns may be happy to give you clippings. Five centimetres (two inches) should work well. Any weed roots remaining under the mulch will probably re-sprout, but new weeds won’t. “I was at the grocery store Anne Marrison Grass clipping mulches offer today.

Terry Fox Library set to bring Buddies back Do you need a big buddy? The Terry Fox Library announces the return of the Reading Buddies program for young readers in grades 1 through 3. The program is a great way for children who would like to be better readers to have fun and to get extra practice. Little Buddies are paired with teen volunteers for 30 minutes of reading in a supportive environment.

Pick up an application form at the Terry Fox Library information desk. The sessions run until March 15, from 3:30 to 4 p.m. The program is free and children will have a chance to read with one of the teen volunteers. To register for the program or for more information, drop by the library, located at 2470 Mary Hill Rd., Port Coquitlam or phone 604927-7999.

PoCo giving out grants What can $20,000 buy? Last year, it helped purchase a plasma TV and blue ray DVD player for Terry Fox Library, playground equipment for two elementary schools and a new floor for Terry Fox Theatre. The funds came from the City of Port Coquitlam’s self-help matching grant program, which hands out $20,000 each year to non-profit Port Coquitlam school, sport, arts, environmental and community-service groups. Applications for the 2011 program are being accepted until March 31. The program has distributed $162,000 since it began in 2002, supporting projects such as playground equipment, building upgrades, a theatre floor, a trophy case, hatchery equipment and covered shelters and benches for sports fields. The funds allow non-profit groups to enhance their services and take on projects that benefit the community. “‘Today’s libraries are more than dusty bookshelves and spectacled librarians telling everyone to shush,” noted Friends of the Terry Fox Library spokesperson Margaret Owens. “With this equipment, the library is providing new and innovative programming for PoCo residents of all ages.” Applicants must be based in Port Coquitlam, and can apply for between $1,000 and $10,000 in matching funds for a future project that will take place in the city. A review committee will rank applications based on project cost, community support, project need and impact and project design; the decision will be announced by the end of June. Applications can be picked up at Port Coquitlam City Hall and city-owned recreation centres and facilities. For information, contact 604-927-7900 or parksrec@portcoquitlam.ca.

Centre urges people to stick it to flu With the flu having already hit hard in parts of Eastern Canada, the B.C. Centre for Disease Control is encouraging British Columbians to take additional measures to protect themselves before influenza ramps up in the province. “Influenza activity has been fairly mild in B.C. so far this year, but the winter is long and the risk is not yet over,” explains Dr. Danuta Skowronski, a physician epidemiologist at the centre. “It would be wise to learn from the experience in Eastern Canada and prepare for that now, because the same could still happen here.” The influenza season typically spans November to April, and the peak can happen anytime during that period. As in past years, the vaccine is recommended and free for the elderly, very young children and people of all ages with chronic medical conditions as they are at highest risk of hospitalization and death due to complications from influenza. “It is not too late for people to be immunized, but for people at high risk, now is also a good time to speak with their doctor about how to get antiviral

treatment early if they develop influenza,” said provincial health officer Dr. Perry Kendall. “As no vaccine is 100-per-cent effective and as influenza viruses are constantly changing, it makes good sense for those at high risk to take additional measures to protect themselves.” In December, the Ministry of Health Services expanded Pharmacare coverage for two brands of antiviral drugs: Tamiflu and Relenza. These antivirals are now covered for individuals who are at high risk for complications and who have flu symptoms during the 2010-11 influenza season, as well as for all residents of long-term care facilities. “Most young healthy people will fully recover from the flu with rest and symptomatic care. They typically don’t need a prescription,” said Skowronski. “But those at high risk may be aided in their recovery from influenza by antiviral medication. Having a plan for early treatment is important as these antiviral drugs work best if they are taken within the first 48 hours — and especially within the

first 12 hours — of influenza symptoms beginning.” Influenza can be a serious, respiratory illness that comes on suddenly with fever and cough as well as general aches and fatigue. Other ways to protect yourself and others is to get plenty of rest and fluids, stay away from work or public places when sick, cough or sneeze into your elbow or sleeve rather than your hands, dispose of tissues immediately after use and wash your hands frequently. Flu shots are still available through public health units, physicians’ offices and trained pharmacists. Use the flu clinic locator online at www.health.gov.bc.ca/flu to find the nearest public health unit or pharmacy, call your family physician or check your regional health authority’s website for more information on receiving the vaccine. For more information on the flu virus, visit the B.C. Centre for Disease Control’s website at www.bccdc.ca or call HealthLink B.C. at 811, to speak to a nurse 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Score Card

Special Olympic winter champions come to Coquitlam Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com At a young age, Patricia Duff demonstrated a love for the ice. Her mother recalls an instance when her intellectually disabled daughter displayed her independent streak as a pre-teen while giving her parents a scare. “When Patricia was 10 we’d take her skating and one time she disappeared from the house,” recalls Helen, her mother. “We searched all over for her and (Patricia’s father) Ron noticed that her skates were missing… “We found her at the skating rink where they thought she was with someone else and let her in. We were quite in a panic but she thought it was good fun — we thought so too after a while.” That passion for skating has grown in recent years as the now-48-year-old Duff has carved out an athletic resume with the Special Olympic B.C.-Coquitlam team. Her enthusiasm will be on full display next week when Coquitlam hosts the 2011 Special Olympics B.C. Winter Sport championships’ ice events at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Centre. The competition will bring together athletes with intellectual disabilities from around the province to compete in figure skating, curling and speed skating. Vancouver and Kelowna will be fielding four other sports. Duff will lace on the figure skates with an eye on dazzling the crowd, her mother said. “She loves figure skating, she’s been doing it for 10 years now and she just loves the clothes she wears,” said Helen. “She goes to these things with great enthusiasm and really looks forward to it.” That same eagerness has speed skater Rene Girard fired up for the races. The 35-year-old Coquitlam resident will be going for gold again and a ticket to his fourth nationals. Girard is ranked among the topfour in Canada. “For him, these are special events. He lives for them,” Girard’s mother Florence said. “He’s actually an easy-going sort who loves to compete, he’s made a lot of good friends through Special Olympics. When the race starts, he goes all out.” Duff and Girard are part of about 35 SOBCCoquitlam athletes who will participate at the Winter Sports championships, with about 15 of them competing on the Poirier ice. For Girard, sports has been a major part of his daily life — from speed skating against both SO and generic competition, bowling, track and field and softball. His mother notes

Rapids shooters reined in by Ramblers From their best to their worst. In a span of a couple of days, the Riverside Rapids ran the gauntlet of good and bad, with both results ending in losses. The senior AAA girls basketball team continue to be among the topfive ranked in B.C., but that stock has taken its share of knocks over the past week. On Tuesday, the Rapids came out flat and shot poorly, missing their first seven shots en route to a 67-41 loss to the Maple Ridge Ramblers in a Fraser Valley North league contest. The taller, hungrier Ramblers also did a stand-out job of keeping the Rapids’ top snipers off balance, resulting in the squad’s top-four hitting just four of 45 shots. “They beat us pretty easily,” remarked Riverside head coach Paul Langford. “They came out ready to play and we were flat.” While they missed their first seven shots, Riverside’s fate was sealed in the second quarter when the Ramblers outshot them 25-6, with the margin at halftime standing at 40-19. It resulted in the squad’s first league loss on home court in more than three years. “They out-rebounded us by a ton and outworked us. We’ve had a couple of games lately where we didn’t shoot the ball well. Because we’re a small, young team we are really in trouble if our shooting’s off.” Maple Ridge was led by 15year-old standout and Team B.C. post Kolbie Orum, who scored 27 points. Megan Sherwood topped all Riverside players with 13 points. It puts the No. 3-ranked club’s regular season record at 2-1, still in first place but facing a stiff challenge from Centennial. It came on the heels of a hardfought 62-57 setback to W.J. Mouat on Saturday in what head coach Paul Langford called the squad’s strongest outing of the year. “That was the best game we’ve played this year,” Langford said of the Mouat loss, which closed out their three-game run at the Heritage Park Bagpipe Tournament. “We were tied with 57 seconds left in the game and we just ran out of gas.” Denise Spacek led all Rapid shooters with 15 points, while sister Michelle chipped in 14. They split the first two games of the tourney, falling to Heritage Park before beating Fleetwood Park.

COQUITLAM METRO-FORD SOCCER PLAYERS OF THE WEEK

In a very important match against the Guidford Eagles, the Under 14 Black Ice secured a 7-1 victory - mostly due to the fine performance of VANESSA CEOLIN. Not only did Vanessa score twice in the first half, but she also played extremely well in the second half in a defensive role. To cap off a very impressive individual performance, Vanessa completed her hat-trick in the second half despite playing in a defensive position. All season long Vanessa has led the Black Ice with her skill, tenacity, and goal scoring ability. On top of all that, she is also able to play various VANESSA CEOLIN positions and fits in extremely well anywhere on the pitch. Coquitlam Metro-Ford BLACK ICE For her impressive performance this past weekend, and throughout the season, VANESSA CEOLIN has been chosen Coquitlam Metro-Ford Female Player of the Week.

STUART COULSON, the goalkeeper for the Under 16 Rangers, has been a dedicated and committed member of the club since the beginning of the season. Never missing training or a game, Stuart anchored the Rangers to a 9-2 record prior to the Christmas break. His impressive performances culminated this past weekend in a stellar display in the Rangers' League Cup match against the very strong Golden Ears Blackhawks. Tied 1-1 at the end of the match, the result had to be settled by penalty kicks and Stuart managed to stop the first 3 Golden Ears shots in spectacular fashion. Unfortunately, the Rangers also missed 3 penalty kicks, resulting in a 2-2 deadlock. At this point Stuart Coulson stepped up to the plate and calmly slotted the winning STUART COULSON goal!! For his excellent performance,STUART COULSON has been chosen as Coquitlam Metro-Ford Male Player-of-the-Week. Coquitlam Metro-Ford RANGERS

that his enthusiasm for sports has helped him stay fit and manage his diabetes. “He’s still got a lot of energy,” she said. “Special Olympics has helped his concentration for one, because if you don’t concentrate in speed skating you go flying into the boards. “For two, it’s done wonders

for his self-esteem. It gives him something else that he’s good at, and we all need to feel good about ourselves.” Florence and husband Arcel are ardent supporters, volunteering as officials — while Arcel is also a coach — at next week’s event. Both Duff and Girard have part-time jobs, strong social networks and good friends. Sport is a major part of it.

“Whether she wins or loses it’s all great fun, although winning is all the better,” Helen said. The competition starts Feb. 11, with curling from 8 a.m. to 6:15 p.m.; speed skating from 9 a.m. to noon; and figure skating at 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. On Saturday, curling runs 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; speedskating from 9 a.m. to noon; figure skating goes 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The landscape for youth soccer in B.C. will have a new plateau for the 2011-12 season with the launching of a High Performance League (HPL). Membership of the B.C. Soccer Association cleared the way for the HPL by using a special general meeting Jan. 21 to unanimously approve the rule changes required to facilitate the enhanced platform for competition and player development in B.C. The HPL will become the top level of youth soccer, bumping boys select and girls metro to second-tier status, followed by gold and silver rep at club levels. With the passing of Monday’s submission deadline, the applicants have a presentation opportunity on Feb. 13 to make their case. A committee of three will choose eight franchises later this month. Coquitlam Metro-Ford

Soccer Club president Gayle Statton confirmed in an email that her club was one of the 11 applicants for the new league, which will feature boys and girls teams ranging from under-13 to u-18. “This will have an impact to all Tri-Cities soccer clubs and members, to the sport and communities,” Statton wrote in an e-mail. “Our club has put in an application for a franchise and the deadline for acceptance is Feb. 15.” The HPL plan includes no district boundary restrictions for players and the league running from March to November — bringing it in line with the rest of Canada. “We’re very pleased with the support we’ve received from the membership on this exciting new initiative and we’re particularly appreciative of the work done by the cross-section of leaders from the clubs, dis-

tricts and leagues who made up our High Performance League committee,” said Steve Allen, the member of the B.C. Soccer board of directors who served as HPL committee chair. Applications for the Lower Mainland franchises were also received from Abbotsford, North Shore/Burnaby, Pitt Meadows/Golden Ears, South Fraser, Sportstown, Surdel, Surrey United and Vancouver/ Richmond. Two clubs will come from the Interior and Vancouver Island. B.C. Soccer will oversee the operation of the HPL, in accordance with the principles of the Long-Term Player Development Program.

PORT MOODY

When local rivals clash, the game often comes down to one play. That’s pretty much all that separated the Port Moody u-18 gold boys Reds and the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Inter in their league match last week. Port Moody’s Reshad Ziauddin’s blistering shot caught the top corner at the 73rd minute, lifting the Reds to a 1-0 decision. Although it was the lone goal of the game, it certainly wasn’t the only big play for Port Moody. Coquitlam had a number of good scoring chances foiled by netminder Eugene Borysenko, while defenders Matthew Brown, Trenton Murphy, Andrew Pilcher and Ben Vovko did

Cancer June 21-July 22: The emphasis lies on mysteries, sex, intimacy, research, large finances, lifestyle, crucial health matters, commitment – anything that can change your life deeply (usually another person is involved). This month, these changes tend to work through your ambitions, career, or status situations. E.g., a “status” wedding changes your life and finances. Or a career opportunity demands a commitment (of $?) from you, and will change your life. (Your career is marked by splendid luck this winter/spring.) Charge ahead SundayWednesday (a happy day!). Retreat, rest, plan Friday eve, Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Relationships, relocation, dealings with the public, fame, negotiations, litigation, agreements, opportunities and opposition – these fill February. This week, especially Sunday to Tuesday, emphasizes the source of this winter/spring’s good luck: legal, loving, intellectual, international and cultural scenes. Work, health and your duties or ambitions might interfere – these are heading for a deep change and “rebirth.” (It centres on Wednesday, but could occur anytime in February.) Chase your ambitions Wednesday, but avoid conflict, aggression Thursday. Joy, friends, Friday/Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Work’s essential – get it done. Your efforts, duties (and perhaps health) are tied up with an influence of deep change this month, especially this Sunday to Tuesday. This can manifest as: a sexual affair with a co-worker, investment in your job or tools/machinery, or changes brought about by your job or health – all are agents of change – beneficial change. Money goes better than romance right now. A gentle love floats in Wednesday, but irritation dissipates affection Thursday. (DON’T invest or make big changes this day.) Be ambitious Friday eve, Saturday – success accompanies you!

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Lie low, rest Sunday morning. This afternoon to Tuesday your energy and charisma surge – a bit of big luck could come, maybe involving home, relationships or money. (However, don’t push authorities.) Chase money Wednesday to Friday noon – but take care with purchases. Your hopes and your money resources (earnings level, savings) are in conflict – find reality. You might sense, or be offered, a career or status “partnership.” It’s subtle, you have to be intuitive or watch clues. Friday eve, Saturday bring errands, casual friends, curiosity and variety – read, write, talk. Taurus April 20-May 20: The emphasis lies on ambition, career, prestige relationships, your reputation and status. Elements of fantasy/deception, creative ideas and impatient bosses crowd this zone. If you deal with government, large corporations, institutions or charitable agencies, “impatient bosses” will be less of a factor. Be willing, quick to respond – and keep your sense of humour (especially Thursday!). Use Sunday eve through Tuesday for research and planning – get plenty of rest. Your energy surges Wednesday to Friday: display your skills, work hard. Excellent purchases Friday eve, Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: The accent lies on gentle love, compassion, broad vision, law, higher education, publishing, far travel and cultural rituals. February 5/6’s sober, realistic love wish is almost sure to come true. But a “sweet confection” love wish, involving beauty, and perhaps involving a Libra or Taurus, is less likely to come true. (Some “destiny” lies in wait for this one – either a wipe-out, or a deep rebirth.) In other ways, Sunday to Tuesday brings wish fulfillment, social delights and happiness. Rest, lie low Wednesday/Thursday. You shine, succeed and attract others, Friday eve, Saturday!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The emphasis is on romance, creativity, beauty, luck, risk, pleasure, charming kids, sports/games. You’re riding a winning streak – recognize and use it, seize on openings, issue invitations, respond, speak what’s in your heart, etc. Take a chance! The source of your January-to-June luck is highlighted Sunday afternoon through Tuesday: relationships, relocation, negotiation, agreements and contracts, litigation, co-operation. Clue: everything in the first sentence will aid these; but security, property, family will “fight” them. These, security, property, etc., are about to transform. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Be gentle on the home front – spend energy on renovations, repairs, rather than causing family friction. Think back and ahead: decide who should stay in your life, who should leave. Your choices will affect your health and your duties, for good or ill. Your work will expand for the next four months – clues arrive Sunday to Tuesday. Quiet discussions and administrative contacts benefit your efforts, but more adventurous communications (especially of love or competition) will erect barriers to work success – take heed Thursday. Mysteries, intimacy and finances succeed Friday eve, Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Romance, creativity and a risk-taking mood steal upon you Sunday afternoon to Tuesday – take that risk! But realize money and confidence aid romance/creativity more than wishful thinking does. You might have some puzzles to work out around these: romance, pleasure, money and work.Work definitely faces you Wednesday (success) and Thursday (when work interferes with romance’s communications, or might be dangerous – practise safety). Exciting meetings (and some a bit more stable, boring, with other generations) arrive Friday eve/Saturday: love’s possible! All month, money’s lucky.

Feb. 6 - Feb. 12 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Chase money, buy/ sell, seek lucrative clients – but most importantly (as Sunday to Tuesday might whisper to you) pursue the connection between security and money: e.g., buy or sell real estate, start a retirement fund, put away funds for your children’s education, purchase insurance, spend on new business premises or to expand your territory. Ending unprofitable or stale situations is also a wise move financially. Romance and pleasure call Wednesday (successfully) and Thursday (not – beware “wasted money”). Tackle chores Friday eve, Saturday: you’re ambitious, productive! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness are at a peak! Start important projects, seek favours, call in markers, show yourself in person. You’re very communicative, curious and travel-prone this month – these are emphasized Sunday to Tuesday. A Libra and a Gemini are attracted – the Libran is very serious. A Leo wants to spar – and join. Attend to domestic matters, family and security, property and “territory” Wednesday to Friday afternoon. Don’t be overbearing Thursday p.m. Romance, creative surges and the urge to take a big chance arrive Friday eve, Saturday – yes, plunge in! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Rest, lie low, contemplate, plan. Be charitable, spiritual. Attend to obligations, committee and administrative chores. (Do taxes?) You will want to be free of these in two weeks when your energy and money luck will soar upward. Let much of your planning involve finances. Money, earnings and possession are highlighted Sunday p.m. through Tuesday – let realism rule fantasy and wishful thinking. Your wishes, however, do have a destined road ahead – something is wiped out or born this week; it changes your future. Careful with money Thursday. Deep rest, good family Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
