PoCo council approves pay hikes

Playground planned for Mundy Park Coquitlam could become an eco-tourism destination if council moves forward with plans for a “forest adventure playground” in the tree canopy of Mundy Park. This type of treetop facility allows adventurers to follow an all-ages course from tree to tree using walkways, ladders, swings and zip-lines. These structures do not harm trees or obstruct natural areas, states a staff report. “This opportunity provides additional recreation opportunities to the community, supports economic development and may lead to enhanced services to citizens,” the report notes. Staff believe the area east of Spani Pool is the best spot for the playground, although they also considered locations in Eagle Ridge, Blue Mountain, Glen and Town Centre parks. Coun. Barrie Lynch said extra funds could be invested in park maintenance. A private business would build and operate the playground, paying the city to use its land. “This is one of the ways we’d be able to incorporate some type of eco-tourism business that would provide revenue back to the city,” said Lynch, vice-chair of the recreation, sports and culture standing committee. “We’re also trying to increase the number of jobs we’re having in this city because as we increase residents, we’re trying to provide a force of employment.” A 30-person staff works at a similar facility in Maple Ridge that opened earlier this month, notes the report. Coquitlam’s initiative could also offer an interpretive program for Mundy Park to teach the public about forest ecosystems and safe stewardship. A public consultation process will begin Friday and run to Aug. 25.

YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS: Public anger over tax increases is a common sentiment nowadays, but for Mark, 5, and Peter, 7, it could be a way to attract more customers — as they advertise their baked goods at the PoCo Farmers Market as being tax-free. The market takes place Thursdays from 3 to 7 p.m. through Sept. 16 at Leigh Square. Tomorrow’s event features a special focus on blueberries.

ICBC claim? Press one:

Everyone else is doing it. Several other Metro Vancouver cities are paying their elected officials a higher salary, higher transportation allowance and mayoral severance package. Using this rationale, Port Coquitlam council unanimously voted themselves a hefty pay raise last night, along with other perks, retroactive to July 1. Mayor Greg Moore will receive a 27per-cent hike to $85,418 from $67,277. Meanwhile, the city’s six councillors will see their salaries jump by 42 per cent to $31,654 from $22,257. One third of these annual amounts is tax exempt. To cover these additional costs, each PoCo household will pay an extra $3.95 per year. To keep up with the Joneses, Port Coquitlam calculated the average council salaries in the four Metro Vancouver cities closest in population — Maple Ridge and New Westminster have the next-highest populations, while North Vancouver City and West Vancouver have the next lowest. Chief administrative officer Tony Chong said this methodology is a reasonable way to determine compensation, combined with recommendations of a citizens task force. “The key thing to remember here is do you subscribe to the principle of [fairness] and equity in terms of compensating people on council? Because bear in mind that you want to not create a financial hardship for people that seek to provide service to the community,” he said. “Now that’s not to say that they should capitalize in terms of making a lot more than otherwise they would in their jobs. But fair compensation means that they do not have to suffer a hardship.” PoCo’s mayor and councillor salaries will be reviewed again each January using the same formula, starting in 2011. That means if councillors in Maple Ridge, New Westminster, North Vancouver or West Vancouver vote themselves a pay raise before the end of 2010, PoCo council could receive another salary spike five months from now.  CONTINUED ON PAGE 4, see ‘THIS PROCESS.’

Lack of parking upsets merchants One business owner says she’s considering legal action against the city

S

everal Port Moody business owners say parking problems are impacting their St. Johns Street companies. Sohaila Hesabi has operated her bookkeeping business near the corner of St. Johns and Queens streets for the past eight years. And since the start, she’s struggled to find a spot to park for the day. Parking is limited to 15 minutes in front of her office, with one- and two-hour restrictions further down the road. She has returned to her Toyota Corolla to find parking tickets on many occasions, and last week bylaw officers locked the front wheel with a parking boot. “I have my own business for more than seven years. Up to now, I still don’t have any places to park my car,” Sohaila said. “For me, it’s a serious matter. It’s not somewhere I want to move from. I established a Paul vanPeenen/NOW business here.” Sohaila Hesabi returned to her car last week on St. Johns Street to find her wheel locked with a parking boot.

Re: “No gun shops in Port Moody, now or in the future: council,” Wednesday, July 21. Yet another western town falls under the influence of hoplophobia. The true reason behind the bylaw is, as Port Moody Mayor Joe Trasolini said, “It’s just as simple as that.

Stephen Harper recently declared that he would allow seismic oil surveying in an area that he had just declared the newest environmentally protected area, pristine Lancaster Sound. Seismic soundings, in order to locate exploratory oil mapping, endanger the wildlife existing in this protected area. Editor So first you declare the area an environmentally protected area and then you wait three months before approving oil exploration for the same place? How devious is that?

Our View

Wrong timing, PoCo

I

ssue a press release on a Friday, after deadlines have passed for local papers. Check. Discuss the controversial issue at the last meeting before summer break, when many residents are on vacation. Check. PoCo council members may have thought they did everything right when it came to flying under the radar with their latest venture: to vote themselves massive pay raises. But their plan backfired as the move made headlines outside the Tri-Cities in both daily newspapers, as well as on TV and radio newscasts. Everyone, it seems, is shocked that Mayor Greg Moore is receiving a 27-per-cent pay increase, while his fellow councillors will get a whopping 42-per-cent raise. In regular economic times, such a move would attract its share of critics. As the recession continues, however, many people have been unemployed for months, there are more for-lease signs on offices and warehouses in the Tri-Cities than at any time in recent memory and B.C. residents are seething with anger over the HST and other fees and levies. That makes the timing of these increases wrong. Yes, we need to attract good people to public office. Yes, paying them a fair wage is one way to do that. But if you think the 27-per-cent and 42-per-cent pay increases are the entire picture, you’re wrong. Moore will also receive a $5,723 a year “transportation allowance,” essentially a bonus. And all council members receive one-third of their wages tax-free, a perk virtually unheard of in the real world. Oh, and they have expense accounts. City staff compared PoCo to other Metro Vancouver cities with similar populations to come up with a formula for the wage increases. Fair enough. But when it came to a “transition” package for the mayor, staff looked at a different set of municipalities. Sounds like they cherry-picked to get the stats they wanted. And so the merry-go-round continues. One city adds a perk, and the rest follow. Here’s the difference this time around: Public anger is growing, and voters may not forget about these shenanigans come election day.

reflect the angst on the left. The comments following the articles for the most part excoriated James and demanded that she step down before the next election. This doesn’t make sense. But it is further evidence of an irrational anger that is spread across the political spectrum. For example, it has been near impossible to have a rational debate on the HST. I’ve pointed out that the NDP estimates the average “hit” to a consumer from the HST is about $520 annually, which works out to $10 a week or about $1.50 a day. But when I use those stats to make the point that the HST, while unpopular, may not be quite as horrific as some insist, I get denounced as a Liberal apologist or worse. Anyone who sticks their head up right now runs the risk of it getting shot off. The trouble is, I don’t see any relief any time soon on any front. Unless the courts throw it out, the HST is likely here to stay. (In fact, even if court action derails it, I suspect it will only be temporary relief.) Our BC Hydro rates will continue to increase, for at least a few years. The carbon tax will go up again next year, and our municipal property taxes will continue to climb. And that Port Mann bridge toll will take effect a couple of years from now, and the prospect of more tolls cannot be discounted. Everyone will continue to get dinged, over and over again. And I’m not sure when that crankiness and disenchantment will end. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Will PoCo ‘cry poverty’ at bargaining time? I now know why PoCo city council reduced our garbage pickup while raising the rate we pay for garbage disposal, and was actively encouraging residents to recycle. It was so they could recycle the thousands of dollars saved into raises for themselves. I believe a man is worthy of his hire — that is, a fair wage for a fair day’s work — but how can they justify a 27-per-cent and 42-per-cent increase? CUPE workers have had their wages controlled for the last 10 years. They have not even kept up with inflation. I would love to be the negotiator and listen to the council cry poverty next year at bargaining time. Leslie Hammond Port Coquitlam

Census decision a mistake The Stephen Harper government has once again managed to raise a tempest where before there were but ripples. Having unilaterally decided on a whim, with no consultation with the public or major stakeholders, they will be dropping the mandatory long-form census because people don’t like it (like taxes?). Statisticians and a host of both private and public sector organizations that rely heavily upon this information have stridently objected that this decision will severely damage the quality and, therefore, the usefulness of the data. It will impair decisions around urban and rural planning, health services, buses, rapid transit, bridges, highways, schools, shopping malls, education, resource management, etc. The idea to offset this loss by sending the long form to more households for voluntary response won’t resolve the problem at all, according to statisticians, but it will cost a

great deal more — more money for less value, not to mention the additional costs that will follow from having to base policy decisions on bad information. Personally, I didn’t like having to fill out the long form. Yet I see the need for it and the value of it and, given that odds are that I need to do this maybe once every 25 years, I can easily live with it as a civic duty. I can see no conflict with the Charter of Rights and Freedoms; confidentiality is protected by separating the data from the identities of respondents and the privacy commissioner has found no privacy issue. If there are indeed real concerns with the current approach, fair enough, let us indeed look at them. But let us have propTo The er public input and, especially, hear from statisticians and all stakeholders. Let’s gauge the consequences and consider the solutions. If this was anything but kneejerk spur-of-the-moment policy, we could have done this years ago after the previous census, but it’s too late now for this one. This decision is ill-advised and clearly not thought through. The responsible action here is to leave the upcoming census well enough alone and engage the dialogue (if at all) for the subsequent one. This will give us five more years to sort out the problems and examine ways and means, if any, to properly resolve them.

I am writing to respond to the assertion by Sandra Robinson that the Hope Slide, in southcentral B.C., “dwarfs any damage that past logging, mining and other resource extraction activities have done at the hands of man.” She concluded: “there is nothing that we humans can do to the environment that can match the devastating power of nature itself.” She noted that the Hope Slide had a volume of 46 million cubic metres of rock. This is tiny compared to the world’s largest open pit mine in Utah, with a volume of 1.25 billion cubic metres. Twenty-seven Hope Slides would be needed to refill this man-made crater. Then there is the issue of human-caused global climate change, Ms. Robinson. Editor D. B. Wilson Port Moody

People do the most damage to the environment Re: “Nature does the most damage,” letter to the editor, Friday, July 16.

Lack of public washrooms leading to desperation What’s more difficult than getting heaven’s door open for sinners? Getting a church to open its washroom door to pedestrians. Have there not been times in unfamiliar places when seeing the word “washroom” has brought joy almost worthy of celebration — before you find the phrase “customers only” below? The immense disappointment from such incidents occurs quite often in our daily lives. As a child, I remember running home block after block from school with a pale and cold sweaty face. Or waiting impatiently in line to hastily buy a cup of Coke just so that I could ask the clerk to open the washroom at McDonald’s. There are a lot more examples. A person with their legs crossed almost fainted while waiting at the Coquitlam bus station, where the terminal is virtually isolated from any other infrastructure.

The stories get worse, especially with people having GI problems, the big D (diarrhea) or weak muscles down there. If you start thinking about it, you’ll easily find a lot more examples. One of the reasons we might not recognize this as a serious problem is that we are so accustomed to living in our own communities. Everyone has their own places where they can go and express their sense of relief with “Ahhh.” However, knowing these favourite places cannot meet the needs of British Columbia. From Vancouver to Victoria, B.C. is “The Best Place on Earth.” Many visitors from other developed countries are surprised to not find public washrooms in public transit stations. This is a universal dilemma for people waiting for their bus or train: whether or not to miss it and run in search of a washroom. With millions of tourists and visitors from around the world, we need to be better equipped. Lisa Nam Vancouver

Craigslist warning issued Simone Blais sblais@thenownews.com Police are warning online shoppers to be careful, after a rash of transactions have duped people into accepting counterfeit currency. The RCMP’s Pacific Region commercial crime section said 70 Craigslist transactions have been reported to Lower Mainland police since June 25. Some criminals have been using Craigslist, the popular Internet classified advertisement network, to pass counterfeit currency, and the RCMP has been tracking the transactions to identify trends. Sgt. Tony Farahbakhchian, the RCMP’s Pacific Region counterfeit co-ordinator, said the information is also used for looking at criminal organizations and individuals involved in making counterfeit money. In the meantime, however, those buying and selling items online should be careful, he warned. “If you are meeting someone you don’t know, there are a few simply steps you should take to ensure your own safety,” he said in a press release. In the majority of cases, he said, the buyer is meeting the victim in isolated areas such as secluded parks, on quiet street corners or in parking lots. The transactions are done hastily where minimal contact information is provided by the suspect. Many of the items selected for purchase with counterfeit money are popular electronic devices such as IPhones, IPads, Xboxes, Wiis or Nintendo PlayStations, which can be resold easily. Some of these incidents have even turned violent — a victim was bear sprayed in Delta and another suffered serious injuries to his face, head and chest after inviting a suspect into his Vancouver home. Other incidents involve the items being stolen. Farahbakhchian recommends sellers obtain the other person’s contact information before meeting and always bring a friend. Location is also key: choose a place that’s not isolated, and preferably with lots of foot traffic like a coffee shop or mall where there are surveillance cameras and potential witnesses. He also recommends that sellers feel for raised surfaces that should be on the bill, tilt the bill and look for changing colors and images, and look at and through the bill for a watermark and a woven security thread. “It is important to familiarize yourself with the security features on our Canadian bank notes,” Farahbakhchian said. “If it does not feel right, walk away from it.”

Two-for-one deal at Music on the Grill C

oquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre will trumpet its final dinner-and-music showcase of the season with a two-forone deal. The centre’s Music on the Grill series gets its final curtain call this week, and a buy-oneget-one-free deal is being offered up for the Thursday, July 29 double bill featuring singer/ songwriters Téa and Tamara Rhodes. Based out of Vancouver, singer/pianist/songwriter Téa has drawn comparisons to the likes of Sade, Amy Winehouse and Remy Shand for her brand of R&B and soul. Rhodes is noted for her work in the world of jazz, though her sound also delves into the realms of soul, pop and R&B. Thursday’s menu option is a barbecued Mediterranean-style dinner, which will be served one hour before show time at 7 p.m. Tickets for the concert alone John cost $38, while admission for both the dinner and show are $53. For more info, see www.evergreenculturalcentre. ca.

R. Warren. The trio’s latest work builds upon their most recent collaboration, last year’s Bog: Transformation and Memory, an exhibit that examined the relationships between the Langley Bog and the history of peat moss mining, and Colony Farm and Riverview Hospital. The three members use paintings, photography, mixed media and “acoustic ecology” to examine the concepts of preservation, memory and interaction with nature.

New instructors at Place des Arts

Coquitlam’s Place des Arts has added a slew of talent to its roster of instructors. Moving into his new post in September, trumpeter Jonathan Sykes will head up instruction for brass instruments. Sykes hold a bachelor of music Kurucz from UBC, and is well versed in the worlds of jazz and classical music. He has toured across Canada while heading up two different bands, the nine-piece Afrobeat funk band Groove Pandemic and with rock band Tennant. Suzanne Snizek has also been brought on board to teach flute, and she comes to Place des Arts after having previously performed with both the Moody Blues and Roger Daltry. A featured soloist and accompanist on TV and radio programs in his native Mexico, new piano teacher Isaac Juarez-Flores joins Place des Arts after having completed his ARCT and licentiate diplomas from the Royal Conservatory of Music. Jimmy Baldwin rounds out the guitar faculty and has a diploma in contemporary jazz guitar and a bachelor of applied music. He has more than seven years of experience in teaching both private and group lessons, and is currently the assistant guitar instructor with the Sarah MacLachlan music outreach program. Those interested in signing up for music classes at Place des Arts can call the centre’s music program co-ordinator, Melanie Burner, at 604-664-1636, Ext. 38, or log on to www. placedesarts.ca.

Arts in Brief

Painters of the Spectrum focus on the positive

The more than 20 artisans belonging to the Painters of the Spectrum art group will have their works on display at Coquitlam’s Place des Arts until Thursday, Aug. 5. Entitled Sunshine on a Cloudy Day, the show focuses on the transformative qualities of watercolour paintings, and the subject matter includes landscapes, portraits, still life and figurative works. “What inspires you when you are losing hope? These are tough times that call for a bright theme,” group liaison Sabrina Chan said in a press release. “Our watercolour paintings focus on happy, vibrant hues and draw ideas from the natural environment and daily events that warm our hearts.” Established in 2003, Painters of the Spectrum is led by the group’s mentor and teacher, Dave T.F. Chung. The group is made up of about 20 regular members, and 18 of those members will have their works included in the exhibit at Place des Arts. For more info, see www.placedesarts.ca.

Evergreen exhibit explores biodiversity

The ancient Chinese technique of acupuncture has been successful in China for over 2,000 years. Jane Wong has over 34 years experience as an acupuncturist. Two of Jane’s patients attest to the effectiveness of acupuncture. 74-year old Edna has been smoking for 61 years. “I’ve been smoking since I was 13 years old, often two packs a day. After just three acupuncture treatments I’ve quit.” P. Chew, 88 years old was having Sciatica. He could walk, stand up, and sleep alright, but could not sit, if he did - the unbearable pain would almost paralyze him. He was given pain drugs, but after taking them a few times he decided to stop and 34 Years Experience came to me. Now, he is free from the problem and lives happily. Jane says the centre can help with such problems as allergies, infection, arthritis and osteo arthritis, rheumatism, backaches, over-weight, sinus, chest pains, arm and shoulder pains, asthmatic wheezing, headaches, insomnia, stroke, quit smoking, sciatica, and eyesight.

way. We each measured our self-worth against one another, though our parents never did. In childhood, did you feel that you had to win or earn love? Did you have to compete for attention? Was parental approval and affection contingent on your marks, obedience or other demands? Was the language of your childhood home one of laughter and love, or was it one of verbal abuse and criticism, punctuated with name-calling and put-downs? I see many adults wrestling still with the negative commentaries of the past: self-dep-

Donations sought for Aug. 15 KidSport used equipment sale Mark your calendars — KidSport Tri-Cities is planning another sale of used sporting goods. The sale is set for Sunday, Aug. 15, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Poirier Community Centre, 630 Poirier St. in Coquitlam (across from the new pool and arena). The non-profit organization held its first-ever sale last summer, and more than 50 people lined up to get inside. That event raised more than $6,200 for KidSport Tri-Cities, which helps kids from low-income families play organized sports. This year’s sale will feature quality used sporting goods at “incredible prices,” according to a press release from KidSport Tri-Cities, as well as a by-donation barbecue, children’s activities and door prizes. To help make the sale a success, KidSport Tri-Cities is looking for donations of used equipment. Families are encouraged to drop off used sporting goods of any kind between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the following schools through Friday, Aug. 6. Donations can be placed in the bins in front of the offices at all of these facilities: • Riverside Secondary, 2215

Reeve St. in Port Coquitlam; • Gleneagle Secondary, 1195 Lansdowne Dr. in Coquitlam; • Centennial Secondary, 570 Poirier St. in Coquitlam. Donations will also be accepted through Aug. 13 at Cyclone Taylor Sports, 562J Clarke Rd., Coquitlam. For three days only (Aug. 12 to 14), donations will be accepted from 5 to 8 p.m. in front of the Poirier Community Centre, located at

630 Poirier St. in Coquitlam. Since 2006, KidSport TriCities has helped more than 800 youth participate in organized sports, including 314 in 2009 alone. The group is aiming to raise $10,000 this year, to help ensure that at least 50 more Tri-Cities kids get an opportunity to play organized sports.

Your BC Lions — In Their Own Words I grew up in Johnstown, Pennsylvania and have been playing football since I was in the seventh grade. From very early on, I knew I wanted to play professional football and focusing on that goal kept me motivated to do well in high school and get in to university so I’d have an opportunity to realize my dream. After 10 seasons with the Lions, I still love coming to work every day and doing whatever I can on offence to help this club win a championship for the CFL’s best fans. Growing up, I saw firsthand what could happen to kids who don’t stay focused on their goals so I’m very aware of making sure my own children are surrounded by positive influences, whether it’s encouraging my teenage son to do well in high school or coaching my younger son’s football team. It’s also a big reason why I love taking part in our club’s community programs. Among the programs I take part in, I would say the Lions Pride program is one of the most rewarding because I’ve seen firsthand what happens to a young person’s life when they make the right choices. The decisions a youth makes today will affect them tomorrow and I take pride in knowing I may have helped direct one of these young people down a positive path.

Score Card

Nyhaug earns Youth Olympic team nod It’s not the first time, but Tory Nyhaug is aiming to make it a great time. The Coquitlam cyclist was nominated last week to represent Canada at the Youth Olympic Games next month in Singapore. The BMXer says he is going in with the same goal he approaches every race with — to win. “It was really cool and I’m really excited,” Nyhaug said. “It’s awesome, it’s the greatest country in the world and I love being able to represent it.” Nyhaug was one of four athletes selected by the Canadian Cycling Association for the two-week competition, which starts Aug. 14. The 18-year-old will be joined by Steve Noble of Ontario and Stuart Wight of New Brunswick, where each will be required to compete in two of the four disciplines — BMX, mountain bike, road race and time trials. Currently ranked third on the sports’ junior men’s tour, Nyhaug said he’s always excited to represent Canada. He just returned from Red Deer, AB., where he finished first in the Canadian Union Cycliste Internationale tour stop, one week after placing third at the Great Salt Lake nationals in Utah. Nyhaug has already won the Canadian junior men’s title and picked up third at the U.S. Spring nationals. Before heading to Singapore, Nyhaug will be part of Canada’s seven-member team at the 2010 BMX World championships in South Africa July 28-Aug. 1. In April, he captured the second stage of the European BMX championships in France.

PoCo’s Watson set for Singapore It’s off to Singapore for Port Coquitlam’s Robert Watson. The 16-year-old gymnast was selected by Gymnastics Canada to compete at the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in August. It’s been a whirlwind year of strong results that earned Watson his position on the team, including a silver medal at the Canadian nationals in May. Last fall, he competed at the Junior Pan Am Games and posted the top Canadian score. In the process, he clinched a top-five spot for Canada and a berth to the Jr. Olympics. In the past year, he has also competed as part of Canada’s six-person team at the Pacific Rim championships in Australia.

Jr. A’s, Bellies set for Minto tune-up Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com The dynamics at work in the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League final could be pretty explosive. Or it could just be a dress rehearsal of more to come. Fresh off a solid 3-0 sweep of the Delta Islanders, the Coquitlam Adanacs have one hurdle left before beginning the Minto Cup championship chase in earnest, and it starts tonight (8 p.m. at the Poirier Sport and Leisure main arena). That’s where the Adanacs and the New Westminster Salmonbellies will test out their Minto momentum in a bestof-seven BCJALL playoff showdown, aiming to establish some superiority over the other. With both teams automatically advancing to the national tournament, some may wonder if the best strategy in the final may revolve more around survival than win-at-all-costs. Don’t ask Coquitlam coach Curt Malawsky or New West’s Dan Perreault that, though. “I don’t think it does change the motivation,” said Malawsky. “Both teams want to be provincial champions, both teams want that momentum heading into the Minto Cup. I don’t think either team is going to take it lightly.” Considering the well-established animosity and competition between the two clubs, it’s hard to disagree. Coquitlam won the season series 2-1 en route to taking a secondstraight league title with a 191-1 record. Not far behind were the Bellies at 16-3-2 — who are coached by Malawsky’s predecessor. Perreault was relieved of his duties last October after skippering Coquitlam to a playoff Mark Booth/NOW title and the club’s first trip to EXIT, STAGE LEFT: Coquitlam junior Adanacs’ Jon Thomson, right, dodges Delta checker Sean O’Neil during last the Minto Cup in more than week’s B.C.

Playoff berth still to be decided as Adanacs dither against Lakers

It could have been so much easier. The Coquitlam senior A Adanacs can lock up a playoff position on Friday by beating the Burnaby Lakers at Bill Copeland Arena — six days after they failed to do the job on home turf. The 8-9-0 Adanacs stand in a three-way tie for third with Maple Ridge and Nanaimo, each with a game left. A win in their final game will lock up third place, no matter what the other two accomplish. But if the 6-10 Lakers, who need to beat front-runner New Westminster on Thursday just to extend their hopes of a playoff spot, should prevail, Coquitlam’s future will come down to what the others do. Maple Ridge plays last-place Langley tonight, while

Nanaimo visits Victoria on Friday. With the memory of Saturday’s 12-11 overtime loss to the Lakers fresh in their minds, the Adanacs should have all the motivation necessary to take control of their destiny. Coquitlam blew a two-goal lead in the third, as Burnaby bounced back on goals by Trevor Moore and Calvin Craig to force extra time. While the Adanacs jumped ahead once again, on markers by Dane Dobbie and Cory Conway, the visitors struck for three unanswered goals to deliver a disappointing result to Coquitlam. “They came to play and they came to play again in overtime,” said Adanacs coach Neil Doddridge. “Their

season was on the line so they took the bull by the horns and we didn’t.” The lead changed hands a couple of times, with Burnaby taking a 6-5 advantage early in the third. Two goals from Tim Campeau propelled Coquitlam into the lead, but the Lakers replied to tie it. Dobbie and Steve McKinley appeared to give the home crew what they needed with eight minutes remaining, putting the Adanacs ahead 9-7. But Burnaby upped the urgency and Coquitlam stalled. “It seemed like that was lacking on our part, for sure,” Dodderidge said. “I even talked about it before the game, between periods... Now we’ll just have to put our best foot forward (Friday).”

OVER AND OUT: Coquitlam Reds’ baserunner Kyle Joel, shown at right during a league game in North Delta, saw their B.C. Premier Baseball League season come to an end Saturday in Victoria in a playoff sweep.

Mariners rub out Reds in first round

Tom Hanks’ character in the movie A League of Their Own said ‘There’s no crying in baseball.’ But there’s plenty of frustration and disappointment. The Coquitlam Reds’ season came to a sudden halt Saturday in Victoria when the Mariners cruised to a 2-0 series triumph. Coquitlam struggled in all areas while falling 9-0 and 13-1 in the best of three

quarterfinal, giving coach Kyle Williams plenty to mull over in the offseason. “Ultimately it’s my job as coach to get these guys motivated and I really don’t know why it ended this way,” said Williams. “We came out knowing what we had to do, but we had no energy, no intensity, and Victoria had both.” In the opener, the Reds fell behind 3-0 in the first inning and 7-0 after two, with

ace Matt Trimble on the mound. The Mariners, who stoodd third with a 30-14 record, got a two-hitter from ace Adam Cessford. It was a similar story in the second tilt, where Coquitlam trailed 5-0 early. “We were just overmatched completely, we came in expecting a tight ball game but we didn’t deliver. Victoria was pumped and they kicked us.”

Card of Thanks

OH HOLY ST ANTHONY Gentlest and kindest of all saints, your burning love for God, your exhaulted virture and your great charity to your fellow creatures made you worthy when on earth to possess miraculous powers. The miracles waited at your word and the word you were ever ready to speak at the request of those in trouble or need. The anxious prayer of bitter trial was never addressed to you in vain. To the sick you gave back health, you restored what was lost, the sorrow stricken were the object of your tender compassion. Even the dead you raised to life when the wounded heart cried out thee from the depth of it’s anguish. When on earth were you not the saint who had tenderness and compassion on those in distress & sorrow. Encouraged by this thought & convinced by the efficiency of your intervention I’m thanking you for the favours you have granted me. I appeal to you to grant me this favour (mention favour). Oh St Anthony please whisper my prayers to the ears of the infant Jesus who loves to linger in your arms. One word from you and my prayers will be answered. Oh speak the word and the gratitude of my heart will be ever yours. Say this prayer with confidence and the impossible will be done. Promise to publish this prayer.

PRE-HST SAVINGS

EXTENDED

The Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) came into effect on July 1st, increasing the cost of funerals by 7%. In many cases, this amounts to an increase of $500 or more. While we assisted hundreds of families with their pre-arrangements prior to the July 1st deadline, many others were unable to complete their plans before the HST became effective. By planning ahead you will: • Relieve your family of the emotional and financial burden an unplanned funeral can cause • Prevent emotional overspending • Lock in prices at today’s rates

We’re happy to announce we are extending the pre-HST savings – but only for a limited time.
