Aleksandr Plehanov

Plehanov facing fifth charge Exclusive

NOW

Former substitute teacher Aleksandr Plehanov is now facing one more charge of sexual interference of a person under 16, for a total of five counts. The 35-year-old was arrested in March for allegedly touching seven- and eight-year-old girls in School District 43. Three charges stem from March 10, 2010, allegations, and a fourth charge dates back to Oct. 13, 2009. Now a fifth charge has been laid against the Burnaby man related to an alleged incident in January 2008. Plehanov appeared in Port Coquitlam provincial court Tuesday morning and entered not guilty pleas to all five counts. He also entered a not guilty plea to a charge of criminal harassment. This charge followed an arrest in early June for allegedly breaching the conditions of his previous release, which included staying away from schools, daycares, swimming pools, playgrounds, skating rinks and recreation centres. He was also prohibited from carrying weapons, working or  CONT. ON PAGE 4, see PLEHANOV.

Crackdown on scrap metal thieves? PoCo considers getting tough on those who steal copper and other materials restrict dealers from buying scrap metal from minors or from anyone who appears to be intoxicated by drugs or alcohol. Those who break the bylaw, if it passes, could face fines ranging from $1,000 to $10,000, plus the cost of prosecution. According to a staff report, “The recent arrival in Port Coquitlam of a scrap metal and battery recycler makes the adoption of a specific scrap metal bylaw a matter of increased priority.” Bylaw services manager Dan Scoones said the city has a generic secondhand dealers bylaw that was adopted in 1979, but the new bylaw would be more comprehensive and would focus on scrap metal. He said scrap metal theft has been a problem in PoCo, even in his own neighbourhood where metal letters were stolen off a development sign.

Stories by Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com Metal thieves may have a tougher time selling their stash in Port Coquitlam if the city proceeds with plans to regulate scrap metal dealers. Council will consider a proposed bylaw that would impose more stringent regulations on scrap metal dealers, based on a Surrey bylaw enacted in May. Surrey scrap metal dealers must maintain a register of transactions, record sellers’ contact information and keep purchased metals for at least one week. As well, dealers are not allowed to buy materials if serial numbers or other identifying marks have been removed. In Port Coquitlam, the proposed bylaw would also

“I can’t imagine being a scrap metal dealer and somebody comes in with the letters,” Scoones said. “I mean, where does a guy riding a bicycle or pushing a shopping cart get the letters ‘L,’ ‘O’ and ‘T’? Under what circumstances are they surplus to his needs? Where did he get them? But those questions don’t get asked, apparently.” The proposed bylaw is an attempt to set some limits in the industry, Scoones added. “We want them to pay by cheque, for instance, on certain things, and you’ve got to come in a vehicle. You can’t come rolling in with a shopping cart,” he said. “Those are things that came up to be a good idea.” Telus spokesperson Shawn Hall said this type  CONTINUED ON PAGE 4, see ‘IT GIVES POLICE A TOOL.’

volunteering with kids younger than 14 and contacting the alleged victims. Plehanov was released from his bail hearing in June on additional conditions that he not go to Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam or Port Moody, except for court or with the written permission of his bail supervisor. Dressed in beige pants, a beige shirt and a brown jacket, Plehanov sat in the front row of the courtroom Tuesday morning as he waited for his appearance. He leaned against the partition in front of him with his right hand while resting his chin in his left hand, occasionally touching his moustache while he stared straight ahead. A pretrial conference was set for Sept. 7 and a trial date will be confirmed on Sept. 21. The trial is expected to take about 10 days. Plehanov, known as “Mr. P” to his students, worked as an on-call teacher at 42 different elementary, middle and secondary schools in School District 43 between January 31, 2007, and March 15, 2010. Coquitlam RCMP launched an investigation on March 10, 2010, after parents reported alleged incidents of inappropriate touching in a classroom setting. Prior to that, the BC College of Teachers launched its own investigation into Plehanov on March 5 after receiving a report from District 43. Coquitlam RCMP issued

a statement on May 3 stating that investigators “have reason to believe that there may be more victims and/or witnesses to other incidents involving Mr. Plehanov.” They asked parents to contact investigators if they believed their child may have been a victim or witness to an alleged incident. Two more charges have been laid since then. Currently, Plehanov is not teaching in School District 43.

of bylaw can be an important deterrent against the theft of copper and other metals. “It gives police a tool that they can use for undercover sting operations where they can go into scrap dealers and make sure they’re abiding by the rules and thus catch the bad apples,” Hall said. “The authority in bylaws can remove their business licence if they’re not compliant.” However, many scrap metal dealers already abide by similar practices, he added.

“What we’ve found is that the good operators have no trouble at all complying with these bylaws, and in fact many of them already do a lot of the things that are required in the bylaws,” Hall said. “It effectively helps close off the demand for the stolen material. And if there’s no demand, people won’t steal it.” So far this year, Telus has dealt with more than 100 thefts of live copper cable across the region. Hall estimates each incident costs about $50,000 and leaves customers without telecommunications service — including 911 access — for 12 to 48 hours. Businesses also suffer

because they rely on these connections for communications and for Interac and credit card machines. “It’s a very serious crime … It’s great to hear that Port Coquitlam is taking the issue so seriously and dealing with it. That’s outstanding, from our perspective,” Hall said. “Bylaws like this, and perhaps provincial legislation, are ultimately going to be what solves the problem because it gives police such an important tool in fighting it.” Port Coquitlam will provide a public input opportunity on the proposed bylaw this fall.

Opinion

What’s overdue? Amalgamation Re: “PoCo council approves pay hikes,” Wednesday, July 28. The Port Coquitlam council recently increased their remuneration: 42 per cent for the councillors and 27 per cent for the mayor, plus some other goodies. Long overdue, says Mayor Greg Moore. Also long overdue, but not addressed by the mayor, is the amalgamation of the three cities: Port Moody, Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam. To The Think of some of the advantages: 1. Removal of duplication: fewer mayors, councillors, administrators and city halls; savings would be at least $15 million every year for taxpayers. 2. More efficient organizations: one fire department, one police department, one planning depart-

ment, to name a few. 3. More co-ordinated and cohesive planning and development of the area. 4. More political influence: with a population base of over 200,000, the amalgamation would allow more clout with provincial governments in such issues as transportation for the area. 5. Fewer sister cities: none would be preferable as these are just gimmicks for Editor getting pleasure tours for the mayor and his entourage at taxpayers’ expense. However, I know that an amalgamation will not happen because the politicians will debate ad infinitum a suitable name. Ken Henderson Coquitlam

Our View

Reducing garbage is the real issue

M

etro Vancouver’s directors voted to perhaps look at burning some of the region’s vast flow of trash, rather than burying it in leaky landfills. The arguments over this could take up numerous editorials and articles, and no doubt will over the next few months. Will waste-toenergy dump too much soot and pollutants in the Fraser Valley airshed? Are some residents going to take the brunt while others get to breathe clean air? Can the system ever be made truly clean? However, the current system couldn’t continue. Burying garbage and hoping it goes away shows that, as a society, we’re no better than a six-year-old hiding Brussels sprouts under the table to avoid eating them. As everyone, from the Metro Vancouver directors to Premier Gordon Campbell, has said, we need to stop creating so much garbage, period. Recycling, we’re getting pretty good at (although we could improve) but reducing is where we need to make great strides. This is where everyone from the average citizen to the federal and provincial governments is going to have to work collectively. We need to reduce packaging, bags, boxes and foam peanuts. We need to stop tossing out millions of cardboard coffee cups, paper napkins and burger boxes. We need old solutions and new ones to slash the amount of junk we throw out after preparing a meal with supermarket ingredients. And what we can’t eliminate, we need to recycle in an expanded blue box system. Citizens are going to have to pull up their socks and take part, but governments will have to show some real backbone. They’ll probably have to put some serious money into this, and they’ll have to face down the many, many corporations that won’t want to change.

But when you start going through the list of cost The first estimate from the government was $365 overruns that have piled up on the Liberals’ watch, million. Then, a few months after the last election, it’s hard to take seriously their boasts of being the new number was $458 million. (Gee, what do

so much better on economic matters than New Democrats. Aside from the BC Place roof overrun, there are such things as the new Vancouver Convention Centre, which cost almost $900 million — almost double the original estimate. The Port Mann Bridge project has ballooned from $600 million to $3.3 billion. It was also supposed to be a public-private partnership when it came to financing, but that fell through and the government is now on the hook for the entire amount. For years, the government insisted the costs for the 2010 Olympics would be $600 million, and not a penny more. Last month, it finally admitted the tally was about $925 million — an overrun of more than 50 per cent. And let’s not forget last year’s pre-election budget, which turned out to be the most inaccurate budget in B.C. history. The NDP was excoriated by the Liberals for its so-called “fudge-it budget” in the mid-1990s, but last year’s wildly inaccurate budget dwarfs the NDP’s record when it comes to missing the mark. Various polls continue to show voters give the Liberals more credibility than the NDP when it comes to the economy. Based on the track record of this government recently, it’s difficult to see why that continues to be the case.

Focus on drug dealers, city, not lemonade stands Re: “City shuts down lemonade stand,” Friday, Aug. 6. It is not comforting to know that city staff have even less political acumen than our elected officials. Kids working the limited dog days of summer to raise a few bucks for their soccer team? What could be more innocuous? I rather doubt their theory that serious business competition would move into such a limited opportunity venue. Are they next going to demand a business licence from the war veterans who sell poppies at the cenotaph this coming November? When I take my fully licensed dogs for a walk in Lions Park and other city parks, I cannot help but notice that a far more insidious commerce is taking place than selling lemonade and dog treats. Please, Port Coquitlam, try to find bigger fish to fry along the banks of the Coquitlam River and in other city parks. Ian MacSween Port Coquitlam

Leave Mundy Park alone Re: “Playground planned for Mundy Park,” Wednesday, July 28. Thank you for bringing the proposed adventure playground in Mundy Park to our attention. As a long time Coquitlam resident and frequent user of the park, I am appalled by the suggestion. Why does the city seem so bent on developing this park? Last time it was a proposed golf course (which was defeated). Hmmm, makes you wonder if that is why the public consultation is happening during the summer while people are on holidays and out and about and

not paying as close attention. Does the city really need to eat up every available acre of land to make a buck? The park is already well used from dawn to dusk by people and their pets. It is often the only quiet place where you can hear yourself think. Now they want to put zip lines through the tree canopies so that we will have people screaming overhead constantly? It makes no sense. For those people who like the idea, do they realize that at $40 for an adult ticket and a ride that last a very short time, not many families would be coming back more than once? Thus, it will not be the residents who live in the area who will be generating the traffic and noise that will be a result of this proposal. Mundy Park is a little oasis of To The peace and quiet in an otherwise noisy world. Why can’t they just leave it as is? Let us also not forget that this park also belongs to the creatures that live there. They should be considered as well, and I don’t see how making the park a playground can serve them any good. I think it will drive them out more and result in more confrontations that will then result in more dead animals. Wendy Barbour Coquitlam ••• Have Coquitlam residents not shown their love and appreciation of the urban forest beauties of Mundy Park as it exists in its natural state? Decades of demonstration, frustration and forums to preserve this treasure for posterity have already occurred. The possibility of zip lines along with the accompanying infrastructure and hysteria through five hectares (12.4 acres) of wildlife and human serenity is horrifying.

Years of successful bear habitat management and community education would also be jeopardized. Are the councillors in support of this ridiculous concept vying for political suicide? Its introduction would have been much more appropriate on April 1. The value for children and adults alike of this precious bit of nature is the education and environmental awareness that it can provide, not in the rush for the thrill seekers.

‘I’m in it for the money’

Letters Editor

Re: “PoCo council approves pay hikes,” Wednesday, July 28. I would like to comment on the large increase that our council voted themselves in PoCo. Our mayor stated that it is necessary in order to attract good people to

the job. I don’t agree. I believe that we want people running for council who are concerned residents who know the city and want to get involved and are willing to donate their spare time unselfishly for the good of our community. We are not running a business and taking applications for the best qualified person for the job. On the contrary, we want ordinary residents who will learn on the job and strive to make decisions with our input, not on their own as they did with their raise. This council has completely changed the dynamics of running for council into a monetary issue rather than one of civic duty and privilege. Having said that, I am seriously thinking of running for mayor in the next election for the money. My reason is my wife and I are both retired and currently living on our pensions, which combined are one-third of what our mayor

A7

Fax 604-444-3460 E-mail editorial@thenownews.com Mail 201A-3430 Brighton Avenue, Burnaby, B.C. V5A 3H4

makes now. That is because, besides the salary our mayor receives from PoCo, he sits on regional boards and gets compensated well for each meeting, of which there are many in a year. This, combined with his one-time travel allowance, expense account and severance pay, amount to a lot of money per year. I will be very honest (which is very rare for a politician) and state right up front that I am running for the money. Of course, I would put 100 per cent into my job as mayor because I totally believe that's what the residents deserve and should get. I would promise one thing if elected: there would be big changes in the way things are done at City Hall. If I do run, watch for my catchy campaign slogan, “I'm in it for the money,” and my theme song, “Money, honey, if you want to get along with me.” Thank you in advance for your support.

Donations still being accepted for KidSport equipment sale Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com It’s not too late to donate. KidSport Tri-Cities is seeking last-minute donations for its second-annual summer used sporting goods sale this weekend. The equipment will be sold for discounted prices at Sunday’s event, and all funds raised will help low-income families cover sports registration fees. Chris Wilson, chair of the community-based charity, said the goal is to raise $10,000 for grants, topping last year’s $7,000 total. Eligible families can apply to receive up to $150 to help pay for registration fees for a provincially recognized sport, with up to $300 available for hockey registration. However, the fundraiser will bring in only a fraction of the $80,000 Wilson expects to distribute in grants this year — up from $57,000 last year. “In a way it’s good that we can meet the demand, and in a way it’s so sad that there is that much demand. People are still suffering

from the economy, and the program’s become a lot better known. People know about it and are recommending it and they’re accessing it,” Wilson said. “Also, the government cut back their gaming grants, so a lot of sport associations have had to increase their registration fees. A family that was making it work before and now all of a sudden it’s going to cost an extra $40 for soccer, they need some help. So it’s a combination of factors.” Donations of used sports equipment will be accepted until Friday, Aug. 13 at Cyclone Taylor Sports at 562J Clarke Rd. in Coquitlam, as well as at any Coquitlam fire hall. Donations can also be dropped off in front of the Poirier Community Centre at 630 Poirier St. on Aug. 12 and 13 from 5 to 8 p.m. and on Aug. 14 from 1 to 8 p.m. The KidSport used sporting goods sale will be held at the Poirier Community Centre on Sunday, Aug. 15 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will feature a barbecue by donation, kids’ activities and door prizes. For more information, visit the local chapter’s website at www.kidsporttricities.ca.

Wingrove a lacrosse standout  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 5.

mate Ken Thomas, the service was attended by dozens of past and present Coquitlam staff members and local politicians, including former city managers Warren Jones and Norm Cook, former mayors Jim Tonn and Jon Kingsbury, and Coquitlam-Maillardville MLA Diane Thorne. “[Monday’s] service was a beautiful tribute to a very special man,” said friend and colleague Sonia Santarossa, who serves as Coquitlam’s manager of corporate planning and worked alongside Wingrove for more than eight years. “There was a lot of laughter along with the tears as many of his friends, family and colleagues shared some very touching and lighthearted memories about Trevor.” Wingrove died July 29 after battling cancer. He was 42. Wingrove was first hired by the City of

Coquitlam in December 1992, working his way up to the position of city clerk in 2000. In late 2002, he was named the city’s general manager of corporate services, a position that saw him oversee a number of city departments — bylaws, financial and legal — as well as working alongside the RCMP and Coquitlam Fire and Rescue. Outside of his professional life, Wingrove was a standout on the lacrosse floor and played all of his minor, junior and senior lacrosse in an Adanac uniform. In both 1987 and 1988, Wingrove was selected as the league’s most sportsmanlike player, on top of being named to the junior loop’s first all star team. In 1988, he took home the Al Boles Memorial Trophy recognizing the league’s most inspirational player. His senior lacrosse career spanned from 1989 to 1994, and he racked up enough points to sit 35th on the team’s all-time points list (132 goals, 150 assists, 282 points).

Theatre sports league set to launch

The Port Moody-based Young Actors Project is set to expand its reach. Starting in September, the acting and improvisational program will launch a junior theatre sports league in Coquitlam and North Vancouver for kids between the ages of eight and 11, and 12 and 15. Canadian Improv Games veteran and Carson Graham Secondary improv coach Jullian Kolstee will lead the league. “The goal with this program is to build students’ confidence and unleash their creativity so they can get up in front of an audience and put on a spontaneous unscripted performance incorporating unpredictable suggestions from the audience,” Young Actors Project founder Robert Randall said in an email to The NOW. “That takes a lot of bravery — and that’s the most important quality any actor needs.” For more info, see www. youngactorsproject.ca or call Randall at 604-318-0881.

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.

Thrift store celebrates milestone

The Crossroads Hospice Society Thrift Store will turn six on Saturday, and plans to celebrate its birthday with a sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The store, located at 2565 Barnet Hwy. (at Falcon Drive) in Coquitlam, benefits the Crossroads Hospice Society’s Inlet Centre Hospice in Port Moody. To celebrate the store’s birthday, the society issued a press release focusing on “little-known facts that have helped shape the store’s reputation as a Mecca for highquality goods at reasonable prices.” Below are the Top 6 facts few people know about the Crossroads Thrift Store: 1 —The thrift store opened in August 2004 and since then, tens of thousands of shoppers have found deals while helping to provide a steady source of income for the Crossroads Hospice Society. This Saturday, Aug.

14, the store will mark its sixyear anniversary with a massive birthday bash with hotdogs and cake in the morning and deals all day. Think you’ve already found that once-in-alifetime deal? Think again. 2 — The store provides much-needed funding for the Crossroads Hospice Society and helps the community recycle gently used items. It is estimated that more than 10,000 pounds of used items have been diverted from the landfill thanks to the thrift store. 3 — The most memorable donation in the last six years was a series of oil paintings on canvas by a local artist. The one-of-a-kind works of art fetched more than $2,500 at auction. 4 — More than 12 per cent of Crossroads funding comes from the sale of items donated to the thrift store. 5 — The items for sale at

Library seeks ‘living books’ During the past year, the Coquitlam Public Library — in conjunction with Douglas College — has hosted three Living Library events in which patrons meet with fascinating people for one-on-one conversations. Now, the library is asking for volunteers who would like to be “living books” at future Living Library events, where they will speak with others and shed light on a misunderstood lifestyle. Some “living books” are subject experts who share their knowledge of interesting topics, according to a press release. Others are people who may be misunderstood or underestimated based on the occupational, racial, religious or lifestyle labels society places upon them. Designed to battle prejudice, the Living Library program encourages people to probe beneath the surface and learn about living, breathing people, rather than dwelling on stereotypes pushed by the media or by their own personal biases. Previous speakers at Living Library events have been a First Nations elder who was formerly homeless, a Muslim scholar, a recovered bulimic and a refugee. Possible “living books” at future events could include someone who has served in Afghanistan, a gay or lesbian couple raising children, a person with a disability, a person who has overcome a drug addiction, a person with a mental illness or anyone else who may be interested in sharing their experiences with prejudice. Anyone interested in volunteering is asked to call community services librarian Teresa Rehman at 604-937-4140, Ext. 234.

Teens invited to enter contest by creating trailer for a book Everyone’s seen movie trailers, which provide a sneak peek of upcoming attractions. But how many people have seen a trailer for a book? The Coquitlam Public Library is holding a Book

Movie screening tonight In the spirit of providing family fun, creating a sense of nostalgia and bringing something unique to the community, Coquitlam Centre will host Summer Drive-in Movies on Wednesday nights at the H&M and Zellers parking lot off Pinetree Way. The first screening, Iron Man, is set for tonight (Aug. 11). The series will feature three themed movies to accommodate patrons of all ages — with tonight being the action thriller night. Aug. 18 will be date night, featuring the heartbreaking film The Notebook, and Aug. 25 will be family night, featuring the newly released animation hit How to Train Your Dragon. All movies are rated PG (parental guidance recommended). “Here at Coquitlam Centre, we constantly strive to bring something unique and new to our community, and outdoor drive-in movies are just perfect for the summer season,” mall marketing director Deborah Stetz said in a press release. “We are also able to provide a way to support our local food bank, which happens to have a great need right now.” All donations from the drive-in movies will go to the SHARE Family & Community Services Society. In 2009 alone, SHARE’s food bank served 8,175 individuals, of which 1,110 were children under six years old and 3,330 were children under 18 years old. Currently, SHARE is providing a minimum of 800 households with food relief every two weeks, with 45 per cent of those recipients being children. “Preferred Passes” are available for any of the three movies at the mall’s guest services booth (located on the lower level by The Bay), for a $10per-car non-refundable donation to SHARE. Preferred Pass parking will be available from 6 to 8 p.m. on each event day. The parking lot will then open at 8 p.m. for those without passes, with a non-refundable donation of $10 per car (firstcome, first served, until the lot is full). Vehicles must not exceed 17 feet in length. If the weather does not cooperate, the movie might be delayed or stopped. Check coquitlamcentre.com or Facebook for updates.

Trailer Contest for teens aged 12 to 18. To enter, teens, working alone or in groups, create a video to promote a book, then post the results to YouTube. The video must have a running time of three

minutes or less. Participants can submit more than one video, as long as each submission is for a different book. To enter the contest, participants must fill out a registration form and have a parent

sign off on it. The registration form is available through the teen section of the Coquitlam Public Library’s website at www.library.coquitlam.bc.ca. Entries must be received by Sunday, Aug. 15.

They will be evaluated for creativity and content, with prizes awarded for first and second place. First place winners will be forwarded to a Lower Mainland championship, with a chance to com-

pete against other teen trailermakers for prizes worth hundreds of dollars. For more information, contact Chris Miller at 604-9374140, Ext. 208, or cmiller@ library.coquitlam.bc.ca.

LASER THERAPY

LEGAL

Q. Do you hear clunking/popping sounds when going over bumps?

Dr. Pam Bennett Laser Light Therapy Can laser light therapy help my arthritic knees? They ache when I climb up or down stairs and sometimes I have trouble getting to sleep at night due to knee pain. Yes, painful knees due to arthritis can be helped with laser light therapy. Arthritis is an inflammatory condition that affects the cartilage that covers the ends of bones. As the cartilage wears away, bare bone is exposed. Without this protective coating of cartilage the bones do not glide over each other easily, resulting in painful, stiff movement. The symptoms of arthritis include pain during activity, stiffness, swelling, and a feeling that the knees may “give out” . Laser light therapy is able to quickly reduce the pain and swelling which results in rapid improvement of joint mobility and a decrease in stiffness. Many of our patients are able to resume a more active lifestyle, climb stairs without pain, enjoy pain free sleep again, and reduce or eliminate their use of pain medications after laser light therapy. This non-toxic, non-invasive, safe treatment is rapidly becoming the treatment of choice for arthritis affecting not only the knees,but all painful joints including feet, shoulders, hands, backs and necks.

Q. When parents separate, does the mother always get custody of the children? A. The law relating to custody and access of children has changed in recent times. The "best interests of the children" is now the test that is used to determine disputed custody and access matters. It is now assumed that in most cases, the children's best interests require the full and active participation of bothparentsintheirupbringing.Whenitisreasonable, a model of joint custody and guardianship, with shared parenting is preferred. Often both parents agree that the dad is in a better position to provide the primary home for the children. When the mother and father don't agree on a parenting plan, a court must ultimately make that decision based on the best interests of the children. If the dad's proposal for care is in the children's best interests, the court will determine that dad's home will be the primary home or that dad will have sole custody. It is generally agreed that the children benefit from a co-operative parenting arrangement, whenever possible, which does not prefer the mother or the father. Family law lawyers use their skills to assist the parents to reach creative solutions which are in the best interests for the children.

VETERINARIAN Summer Caution: Heat Stroke Heat stroke occurs in dogs who are left in a small confined space with poor air circulation (notably cars) or when playing or exercising outside on warm sunny humid days. Heat stroke can affect any dog of any age or breed, however overweight dogs, dogs with cardiopulmonary disease or metabolic disorders, long dark haired dogs and brachicephalic breeds (especially bulldogs) are at the highest risk. How to recognize the signs of overheating? D r. N e n a d K a r l i , First signs are restlessness and excessive panting, sometimes DVM & Assoc. excessive drooling followed by very difficult (and loud) breathing, dry tacky gums and agitation. Further elevation of body temperature leads to ataxia, very red gums, and tremors. In the end stages dogs are very weak, have laboured breathing, are unable to stand up or move and sometimes have seizures or collapse. These symptoms without care are often followed by coma and death. If you are able to check rectal temperature, any temperature more then 41°C (106° F) means that your dog is in grave danger. Don’t waste time!!! Immediately call your Veterinarian! And in the meantime try to cool your dog down by immersing in cool water or spraying with water. Never use ice water. Make sure that their head and neck are also wet. Please go to your Veterinarian or emergency hospital ASAP.

while the kids find instant playmates in the community of RVers around us. It’s one of those rare moments of family beauty, when the whining has stopped and everyone is happily engaged. Yes, this is a far cry from a luxury cruise. But sometimes the road less travelled yields unexpected adventure. This RV road trip is one of those times.

Road

with frayed nerves after a seemingly never-ending drive, coming just in time for a quick dinner of grilled cheese at the park concession, the only eatery for miles. A two-hour bus tour of the park had ended just as the rain drenched this dusty land, and between the downpour and the rolling peals of thunder, we were confined to the trusty RV for hours. Still, we were in a pretty unique spot, camping in a park that protects the remains of 75-million-year-old dinosaur bones and boasts 38 different dinosaur species, making it one of the largest collections of fossilized dinosaur remains in the world. Out on tour with park rangers, it was clear that with every step we were treading on history, an ancient world carved into the majestic badlands. And despite their unfortunate name, those badlands are quite magnificent. Etched with the colours of time, these stratified mountains descend to the ground with cracked, dry thighs, embracing each other like a community of tightly knit giants. Time and wind have given many of their peaks the appearance of faces, and in the dusky grey of a summer thunderstorm, it is easy to see the silhouettes of prehistoric creatures staring straight at you. Add the rumbling thunder and you half expect to see a dinosaur round the corner. Today the land is a semi-arid desert, but back in the dinosaur heyday it was a beach on the cusp of the Bearpaw Sea, a lush landscape that was a clear favorite among Hadrosaurids, or duck-billed dinosaurs, whose fossils are now found here in abundance. “This one was the size of our bus,” our guide says as she points to a virtually intact fossil. Excavated in the late 1960s, this Hadrosaurid is curled up in an embryonic pose, leading scientists to hypothesize that it drowned by falling in a river, its remains quickly protected by the layers of sandstone and mudstone that accumulated on top of it.

Dinosaur Provincial Park is a veritable bone-bed, an 80square-kilometre stretch of remote Albertan soil that’s richer in dino bones than anywhere else in the world. To truly understand its significance, we drive 90 minutes northwest to Drumheller, home to the Royal Tyrrell Museum. The crown jewel of this town of 10,000, the Royal Tyrrell is the only Canadian museum devoted exclusively to paleontology. Its exhibits are riveting. There are the recreated figures of the dinosaurs that testify to their immensity, and the opportunity to peek into the laboratories of technicians who are patiently chipping away at rock surrounding newly found fossils. Hands-on displays help kids understand concepts like continental drift and how fossils form, and a movie introduces visitors to the museum’s scientists, who describe their passion for the work and its relevance today. Tucked away in an RV park a few minutes from the town of Drumheller, we sit around a campfire roasting marshmallows

Score Card

A’s bats, arms get them into final four

It’s turning into the arms’ race that the managers anticipated. The Canadian Junior Little League Baseball championship tourney is down to four teams, and the Coquitlam A’s currently sit at the top of the pile. The squad’s pitchers helped put the two-time defending national champions in good stead after four days, with a 4-1 record. They locked up first place in the round robin portion by beating Quebec’s Montreal Lynx 9-5 on Tuesday, powered by an efficient pitching tandem of Curtis Taylor and Tyler Jaco. The pair combined to throw 104 pitches, surrendering nine hits and two earned runs. Tied 4-4 after four innings, Coquitlam exploded with four runs, getting big doubles from Austin MacDonald, Jaco, Alex Hunt and Javeed Khankashi. Khankashi finished with three hits and three runs batted in, including a solo home run. “I hate putting this in an article but we committed seven errors and still won,” Wes Taylor said. “So it’s assuring to know that we can do it, now let’s do it when we’re playing our best.” And that’s what it will likely take as the A’s head into today’s critical semifinal. Their opponent had not been determined by NOW press time. No matter who it is, the A’s will have some quality pitchers ready and waiting for them. “You have to save your pitchers, but it’s a hard balance when each game is so close,” Wes Taylor said after having rolled through nine pitchers during Monday’s double header. Coquitlam shook off an early morning 8-7 setback to the host Lethbridge All-Stars by outslugging the Alberta champion Medicine Hat Diamondbacks 1917 in a key contest. “It was like no other game, you had to see it to believe it,” the manager remarked. “It was a real marathon — both games (Monday) were, and it really tugged on our emotions to not pull that (first game) out.” The B.C. champs erased a 6-1 D-backs lead by pounding out nine runs, led by a pair of tworun doubles from Tyler Jaco and Curtis Taylor. The D-backs scratched back to  CONT. ON PAGE 25, see A’S TWO...

Coquitlam closes in on B.C. junior title

Although only one team will likely admit it, the best thing for both B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League finalists would be for the series to end sooner than later. With the Coquitlam junior Adanacs owning a threegames-to-one stranglehold heading into tonight’s contest (8 p.m., Poirier Sports Centre), a series-ending victory would please head coach Curt Malawsky. New Westminster coach Dan Perreault? Maybe not so much. Both teams have berths clinched for the Minto Cup

championship, which starts Aug. 21 in Coquitlam. The Adanacs broke open a 4-4 game in the third period Friday, cashing in for four goals in the span of 4:27, including a pair by Robert Church. Ontario native Mark Matthews and Jeff Cornwall also counted, before New West’s Alex Lohr found the net with 11 minutes left. But Coquitlam tightened the defence a little more and held the ’Bellies scoreless the rest of the way, with Cornwall chipping in his second of the night to end the offence.

Ben McIntosh, Riley Loewen and Tor Reinholdt also tallied for Coquitlam. Both teams know who they’ll face when the Minto Cup begins, as two-time defending national champion Orangeville swept Six Nations 4-0 for the Ontario Lacrosse Junior A title, while the Okotoks Raiders did the same, topping the Calgary Mounties 4-0 for the Rocky Mountain league crown. If New West extends the B.C. final, Game 6 will go Friday, 8 p.m. at Queen’s Park Arena.

Camps, schools part of Express success plan Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com There’s no such thing as the offseason for hockey players anymore. For players who want to reach the highest level, the current school of thought is that the game is always evolving, and players have to evolve, too. The Coquitlam Express are ramping up their own programs to help meet the demand. As part of their relocation from Burnaby, the Express has ported over its Express Prep Academy for midget and bantam-aged players, while starting a series of other service opportunities, including a learn-to-skate program and a variety of hockey camps. It’s a large portfolio for a team still setting up shop. To get these programs up and running, the hockey club turned to John Blessman. An assistant coach with the Express in 2001-02, Blessman has returned as its program director, spearheading the various instruction programs at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Centre. A ninth-round draft pick of the New Jersey Devils in 1987, Blessman said the main goal is to help young players raise their game. “This is an exciting opportunity, to work with local kids who want to compete at a high level,” Blessman said. Orchestrating the instruction and focus for the upcoming summer camps, the veteran coach is also mapping out the Express Prep Academy, which will provide experienced players born in 1993-95 with a junior hockey-like learning opportunity. “The (club) is geared towards the community, towards helping build hockey here in Coquitlam,” said Blessman.

“While we have all kinds of learning opportunities for young players, one aspect is finding ways to look at how we can develop players who will someday make our team. “That’s an exciting part of what we’re building.” Recently, Blessman served as the director of player development for the Aldergrove Minor Hockey Association, and the head coach of the North Shorebased Raven Spring Hockey Academy. His hands-on experience is a great fit for the Express, president and general manager Darcy Rota said. “We are really happy to have John back with us in our organization in the newly created position as our program director… With John’s past experience as a player and outstanding work as a hockey instructor, he will play a very important role in our organization.” The Aug. 16 to 20 hockey camps will have age- and skillspecific divisions, from 7-8 year old intermediate players, a girls 9-15 age division, advanced 910 and 11-14 boys division, and an advanced power program for 9-14 year olds. Another element is the conditioning camp, geared towards bantam and midget-aged players. “Things have changed so much in the past 10 years, especially what we’ve learned about the value of conditioning (training),” Blessman said. “There are so many different ways to train and keep the kids Paul vanPeenen/NOW interested.

Adanacs in uphill battle

The war of words is just a sideline distraction when it comes to the bad blood between the Coquitlam Adanacs and the Victoria Shamrocks. The two teams entered last night’s (past NOW deadline) Game 4 with lots of fuel to their fire, as evident in games 2 and 3 of the Western Lacrosse Association semifinal series. The Shamrocks lead the series 2-1, following polished 1610 and 16-11 victories Friday and Sunday. With a heated exchange between rival coaches and former teammates Neil Doddridge and Walt Christianson getting big play in the Victoria TimesColonist, the two teams have

retake the lead by connecting for three runs in the top of the sixth, but the A’s wouldn’t surrender, lashing out with four in the bottom half to complete the offence. In that inning, Coquitlam cashed in their four runs on just one hit, capitalizing on three Alberta errors. The manager pointed to a pair of terrific catches made by centrefielder Cole Dowling, who robbed one D-back of a homer and ended the game on a sprawling grab with two men on base. Khankashi, the catcher,

set the tone by going 4-for-4 with three runs scored and three runs batted in, while MacDonald and Curtis Taylor were both 3-for-5 at the plate, driving in a pair of runs each. Hayden Jaco collected the win on one-and-a-third innings of work, fanning a batter. He had two runners aboard when he registered the final out for the win. Against Lethbridge, the B.C. crew saw a 4-3 lead evaporate in the fifth when the home team scored five times to jump ahead 8-4. But they put together a strong charge in the seventh, plating three runs.

Mitchell Anderson singled and was followed by walks to Khankashi, Cole Dowling and MacDonald, setting up a basesloaded chance with Tyler Jaco at bat. The rightfielder hit into a double play to end the game. Coquitlam began the tourney by clobbering the Maritime champion Sydney Mines Ramblers 15-5 in a five-inning contest, and Ontario’s Orleans Red Sox 18-12. MacDonald launched a pair of home runs in the opener, accounting for five runs batted in. A victory in today’s semifinal will put Coquitlam into tomorrow’s championship final.

Van Buuren awarded Jason Parish scholarship Coquitlam’s Asia van Buuren was named the 2010 winner of the Jason Parish Memorial scholarship last week. The Coquitlam Sharks swimmer was honoured for her academic and leadership skills, along with her contributions to the community. Van Buuren, a graduate of Port Moody secondary, is heading to St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia in September. An A student who excelled in sciences, she

was a prominent volunteer with the Blue Force, which works towards creating positive change in the school through a variety of projects. She also participated in a number of other causes, including raising funds to build schools in Haiti. Among the presenters was Barry Parish, father of Jason Parish. The scholarship was created to honour Jason Parish, a member of the Coquitlam Sharks who was killed in a motorcycle accident 19 years ago.

upped the temperature on the floor. The two coaches engaged in a jawing match late in Game 2, reflecting the emotion of the series, and some personal history. Doddridge, the Adanacs rookie bench boss, stirred the pot prior to Sunday’s game when he said: “I didn’t respect [Christianson] as a player.” On Sunday in Victoria, tempers were a little cooler but the Shamrocks remained red-hot. The two traded goals in the first period, and stood deadlocked 7-7 in the second after goals by Dane Dobbie and Peter Veltman in a span of 1:13. But Victoria rolled off five straight goals to end the period up 12-

7, and carved out a 15-8 lead before easing off the gas pedal. Dobbie finished with four goals and Cory Conway a hat trick, while Victoria was led by Rhys Duch’s three-goal, sixassist performance. In Game 2, the squads combined for 181 penalty minutes, resulting in 13 powerplay goals. Victoria finished seven-of-eight with the man advantage. Coquitlam trailed 9-3 after 20 minutes and 12-7 after the second period. When the smoke cleared, seven players had been tossed with game misconducts. The series continues Thursday in Victoria, and if necessary, Saturday, 7 p.m., at the Poirier Sports Centre.

ANNOUNCEMENTS Funeral Services

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.
