Massive project in ’Boro 500,000-square-foot, $50million warehouse space will be leased to Kruger BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Queensborough will soon be home to possibly the largest industrial building in the Lower Mainland following an announcement from the Beedie Group and paper producer Kruger Products. The Beedie Group has purchased a brownfield site to the west of the WalMart and is planning to start construction soon on an approximately $50million warehouse, which will then be leased to Kruger. “This is a massive building. Imagine 500,000 square feet. It’s like a 12-acre building. We think it’s the largest single footprint warehouse ever built in Metro Vancouver,” said Ryan Beedie, president of the Beedie Group. According to Beverly Grieve, manager of planning for the City of New Westminster, the building will account for 15 per cent of the total industrial floor space in the city once it is complete, which should bring a windfall in industrial land taxes for the city, though she could not say exactly how much. “This is why industrial zoning is so good for cities because there’s very little extra structural burden placed (for the city),” Beedie said. “Industrial is just such a real winner for the city because it generates income that it otherwise wouldn’t have.” The new warehouse will replace ◗’Boro Page 3

Fraser River Discovery Centre is encouraging kids to dig in and get dirty with its new exhibit. Plants Alive! is seeking to showcase the diverse native plant life in the Fraser River basin and to highlight the importance of native plants to the ecosystem. “We are really focusing on kids this time,” said exhibit coordinator Kathleen Bertrand. “There is a school program that accompanies the exhibit.” While the educational program is geared to kids in kindergarten to Grade 3, Bertrand said it will also appeal to older kids. Adults will pick up some ideas about native plants they may want to include in their own gardens. “One of the hopes was we could get people incorporate native plants in their own gardens,” Bertrand said. “Native plants are very specific to specific locations. It gives your garden this unique quality to it. Because they grew up here, once they are established, they are very easy to take care of.” Fraser River Discovery Centre is located at 788 Quayside Dr., next to River Market. It’s open Wednesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and admission to the exhibit galleries is by donation.

two primary warehouses and a number of smaller ones Kruger currently uses on Annacis Island. Chuck Stewart, general manager region west for Kruger, said the benefits that come with having a single warehouse include being closer to the mill, reducing trips between buildings, easier shipping to customers and better use of storage space. “All of those things lead to lower costs for us, which is the driving motivation behind this strategic move to consolidate into one large warehouse,” he said. “We’re
in a very cost-competitive industry and the impact of the rising Canadian dollar just makes our markets in Canada a lot more attractive to our U.S. competitors and the ability for us to compete more effectively in the United States that much more of a challenge.”. Stewart said efficiencies created by the new warehouse will likely result in about three jobs being eliminated but the company plans to phase those jobs out through retirement and attrition. Stewart said the move bodes well for the future of Kruger, which is one of New
Westminster’s largest employers with about 600 people on the job. “It really helps to stabilize our whole operation here in Western Canada, locally, and in New Westminster in particular,” he said. He said the news is going over particularly well with employees, who have been taking the news as a “good sign of positive things to come.” Stewart couldn’t say the exact length of the lease Kruger has signed with Beedie Group but hinted it was between 10 and 20 years.
“We’re definitely looking to be there for the long-term,” he said. The property where the warehouse will sit is already zoned for warehousing and the Beedie Group has been given a development permit. All that’s left for the company now is getting building permits, which it hopes to have in time for a June 10 sod turning. Beedie said he expects construction will take about 10 months and require significant new hires to complete. Kruger manufactures bathroom tissue, paper towel and face tissues at its New West mill.
Is New West prepared for an emergency? ‘It’s one of these things you have to plan for, prepare for, but never want to use’ BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
The City of New Westminster is making strides to prepare for an emergency but wants to take steps to get the community onboard. The city wants to raise awareness about the need for community participation in emergency preparedness. A recent presentation addressed the question: Is the Community Prepared? “We have come a long way in the past few years,” said Chief Const. Dave Jones. “We are feeling better about ourselves. We need to know the community is prepared.” National Emergency Preparedness
Week is being held in Canada from May 1 to 7. “It’s one of these things you have to plan for, prepare for, but never want to use,” Jones said. In terms of emergency preparedness, Jones said New Westminster is “getting there” because various departments have been working together on emergency planning. In addition to learning lessons from earthquakes and disasters occurring in other places of the world, Jones said incidents occurring in New Westminster help the city to better prepare for emergencies. These include the fires at the Woodlands site and the 2007 fire at a condominium that was under constriction beside Royal Columbian Hospital. Jones said the city has considered various scenarios, including a sudden breach of a dyke in Queensborough, in which case schools and at community facilities would
be quickly evacuated and people would be taken to the high school. Plans have also been developed that would allow first responders to contact their family members in the event of an emergency and give them the peace of mind so they could continue doing their jobs. Jones has spoken to the police chief who was in New Orleans at the time of Hurricane Katrina. That police department lost hundreds of police officers – not because they died, but because they quit working and left town with their families after their homes were destroyed. In addition to encouraging staff to be prepared for an emergency, all New Westminster police officers are aware of designated pickup points on waterways in places such as Abbotsford and the North Shore, where they would meet to get a ride to work on a boat. “It’s a little thing. It gives us a bit of reassurance that we can get our staff to work and back home,” Jones said
about the possibility that regional roadways won’t be accessible in a disaster. “One day we brought the whole shift to work by boat. It went well.” Fire chief Tim Armstrong is well acquainted with the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, as he was a member of the Vancouver Fire Department’s Urban Search and Rescue Program that went to New Orleans in 2005 in response to Hurricane Katrina. The search and rescue program went to a part of the city that lost all of its fire stations and police cars because of the flooding that occurred after the levees broke. The hurricane and subsequent breach of the levees around New Orleans resulted in downed rail systems and bridges, flooded homes and businesses and flooded roadways so heavily that people were required to travel by boat. ◗Emergency Page 4

City to host emergency preparedness sessions The City of New Westminster is reaching out to the community to help people prepare for emergencies. The city is planning to hold emergency preparedness sessions for the community on Tuesday, May 24 and Thursday, May 26, but the details are still being worked out. The sessions will focus on personal preparedness and business continuity. “We also do community presentations,” said Dave Jones, the city’s manager of emergency management. “Businesses are taking advantage of it. We go out to all sorts of places.” Jones said recent earthquakes in Japan, New Zealand and Chile have been a “wakeup” call to many people about the need to be prepared. He said the City of New Westminster’s goal it to make its
website a destination for people who are planning for an emergency. “We have updated our website,” he said. “We want that to be a place where you can go.” In addition to ensuring city staff are trained to respond to an emergency, the City of New Westminster is working on a “business continuity plan” for all city departments and buildings so they could continue to operate. “We have to issue permits and all that stuff. The business of government does not stop,” Jones said. “We are a service organization.” For more information about emergency planning, visit the city’s website at www. newwestcityca. www.twitter.com/TheresaMcManus
Emergency: Residents must be ready ◗ continued from page 3
“It went on and on and on for miles and miles,” he said of the flooding. “Devastation everywhere.” Armstrong said people were lining highways and waiting for help after their homes had been destroyed, raw sewage was everywhere and creating a stench that took your breath away. He noted that debris was everywhere, the city’s electrical grid was destroyed, crude oil leaked out of tanks and into the community, contaminating the environment, and pets were abandoned when people fled the flooding. Armstrong said the group rescued 112 people and used everything they could to deal with the “chaos” that was everywhere. “To be prepared is extremely important,” said Dave Jones, the city’s manager of emergency management. “Looking at
Tim’s presentation, we can see how some of these events that are catastrophic in nature really try the systems.” The City of New Westminster is attempting to gather key stakeholders in the community, such as residents groups, and work with them to help make New Westminster a leader in emergency preparedness. “Our first responders are here for you the community,” Armstrong said. “We will stay here. … We are not going to be able to do it alone.” Armstrong said the city wants to work with community to help them so neighbourhoods are able to respond to these sorts of events. “We are doing everything we can as a city to be prepared,” he said. “Now we need some help back from the community.” www.twitter.com/TheresaMcManus FEATURING:

A Sure Thing. Don’t miss out on incredible savings from Sears Home Services.
BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The final results from Burger Heaven’s bun-official burger poll weren’t too far off the mark with the results of the federal election. The poll had the Harper Burger and the Layton Burger in the top two spots since the poll got underway, even that’s not what many would have projected. While the percentages may be off a bit, the final results mirror the number of seats obtained by the various parties on Monday night: Harper Burger – 32 per cent; Layton Burger – 31 per cent; Ignatieff Burger – 12 per cent; May Burger – six per cent; Duceppe Burger – three per cent; and undecided – 16 per cent.

Election turnout up – slightly
The turnout for the 2011 general election was comparable in New Westminster’s two ridings, but below the Canadian average. Elections Canada’s preliminary results indicate that 61.4 per cent of registered voters in Canada cast ballots on Election Day. Elections Canada’s preliminary results indicate that 44,719 valid votes were cast in Burnaby-New Westminster, where there are 83,029 registered electors. This equates to a 53.9 per cent voter turnout. In New Westminster-Coquitlam, 50,152 valid votes were cast, which represented a turnout of 60.3 per cent. In total, 83,143 people are registered in this riding. (In addition to registered electors, people are able to register to vote on Election Day.) According to Elections Canada, there was a 58.8 per cent voter turnout in the October 2008 federal election, which was a 5.9 per cent decrease from the previous election. Prior to the May 2 federal election, a record number of voters took part in advanced voting that took place on April 22, 23 and 25, with April 22 and 25 representing the two busiest days of advanced voting ever in Canada.

IN MY OPINION
Tunnelling is the only answer
On and on the endless argument solutionless goes about the untenable traffic into and through New Westminster with constant crowding and lineup and collisions at all the pinch points and junctions. There is no agreement on what to do, and there never can be so long as all discussion is centred on what to do with the current roads. Nothing can be done with growing traffic to make more roads for traffic that is not going to New Westminster only. Giving up city space in order to make a throughway is not anything that benefits the city and certainly not those whose dwellings are imposed on or even eliminated. One way or another, something needs to be done to get the unending interurban traffic to bypass the city streets. Of course it will be expensive. What we have done so far is inadequate, and if we keep on
as we are it can only get worse unless we make a tunnel or two. To make place for the increasing number of cars we need more road. Tunnelling will do that, and this is not the responsibility of New Westminster. Terry Smith, Garibaldi Highlands
Solutions for the Pattullo Bridge Dear Editor:
I think I have the perfect answer to our Pattullo Bridge. I cross it quite often. 1. Install a permanent cement barricade on the bridge centre line. 2. Change the bridge from two lanes each way to one lane each way. 3. Resurface the bridge and install a few speedbumps. 4. Install a sign at the bridge entrance each way stating: No passing allowed at any time. ◗Ideas Page 7

Make repairs under and on the bridge as needed, re blacktop and paint railings, and we’ll have a very safe two-lane bridge. This will be the only solution as far as safety is concerned. Enforce the speed limit, and we will be in good shape for many years to come. L. Luyten, New Westminster
Help immigrant students
As a new immigrant, I had a major concern when I arrived in B.C, regarding my two kids, one two years old, the other 13 years old. Getting the older one into school was not difficult. The problem was understanding the school system around school work, like we used to do. There was no instruction guide for this. ESL, I understood, is a major issue here, as each child’s case is different and the school system focuses on courses, not grade level. You just take and pass the courses you need to graduate depending on your career choice. Here, passing is based on the courses and not the grade. This means you can be in Grade 11 and be taking Grade 9 courses. With this system, I discovered that many new immigrants complete Grade 12
but do not graduate. This is because most of these teenagers do not understand the system in this new and different culture. By the time they realize that they have to retake courses or take new modification courses (because their old ones do not count as part of their credits), time is flying. They end up getting to Grade 12 but leaving high school with no Dogwood certificate. Most parents are also not aware of this, and it becomes a major blow to the child’s future. My suggestion would be to lay more emphasis on the education pattern in the school system. We hear a lot about taxes, low income, employment, etc. If we can use a little fraction of this time to educate these new students and their parents about the school system, we will start early to clear away hurdles which prevent these students and their families from being successful in their career goals. We should all remember that before coming to Canada, these older kids had a vision and we all want to see it mature in them. Also, I suggest that schools encourage parents to come out and ask questions. Coming from very different cultures, there are some cultures where the students or parents cannot approach the teachers with ease. The school should take the lead and make the burden lighter for these families. They should proactively approach them first, rather than leaving them with the riddles and puzzles they must solve when they receive their report cards. Ugochi Ibediro, New Westminster
Families: Time to place value on work ◗ continued from page 6
the best position to determine what constitutes the best possible care arrangement for their children. ◗ 3. Our policy should provide flexibility, options and choices which will make it feasible for either parent to be the caregiver or to be in the paid workforce. This principle aims at respecting preferences, but maintains the false work-vs-care dichotomy. Looking after our own loved ones must be formally defined as work. Labelling it “leisure,” “inactivity,” “time to care personally” or “staying at home” is inaccurate and misogynistic. ◗ 4. Our policy should be inclusive and responsive to the social realities, circumstances and preferences of parents and their children. Specifically, it should be sensitive to the situation of lone parents, stay-athome parents, those with disabled children, the
self-employed, students with children and those on social assistance. This begins to recognize that no two families are alike. Variables are infinite. Yet then as now, pundits base policy on “for example” families which inevitably encode their assumptions about family composition, activities, expenses, and worthiness. Financing family work equitably (see number 5) means that policies really only need to address a few variables: number of children (as per French income splitting) and disability. ◗ 5. Our policy should be fair and equitable and neither encourage nor penalize caregiving choices. This principle of state neutrality on care choices is essential, but it necessitates neutrality on GDP-counted choices. Preferential treatment of GDP-work bribes us to prioritize GDP-work over family-work. This has cost-
ly effects: families cut back child-bearing – Canada’s birthrate is down 60 per cent – and outsource much elder care, volunteerism, and child-rearing to government GDP-workers. Government now finances about 40 per cent of GDP-work. The tax and transfer system can redistribute income from GDP-work to family-work, creating pay equity between the two. Income-splitting helps do this. Government-financed salaries are basically transfer payments; capping government-financed remuneration at, say, $60,000 per year would free up funds. This would create neutrality and reduce the subsidization of GDP-work by unpaid family-work. Helen Ward is the president of the Kids First Parent Association of Canada, www. kidsfirstcanada.org. She lives in Burnaby.

French immersion OK’d
A third late French immersion class at Glenbrook and a second early French immersion class at Herbert Spencer appear to be on the radar after New Westminster school trustees voted April 27 to look into the feasibility of those two classes. “Those are the preferred options, subject to consultation,” said school trustee Casey Cook. “We have a window of one month to get everything done.” The debate over French immersion was precipitated by a letter from local par-

ent Lynda Chapple, who expressed concern that the district would not offer a Grade 6 late French immersion class at Glenbrook even though there are 83 students who signed up for the program. Trustee James Janzen told The Record on April 28 that while trustees are committed to offering a third late French immersion class, senior administrators have to look at how that would work at Glenbrook, especially since there are
space concerns. “We will be consulting with stakeholders and looking at all options,” said Janzen. “What I can say is we’re definitely going ahead with a third class.” Janzen also had more good news for French immersion parents, as he said school trustees are looking at a second class of early French immersion at neighbouring Herbert Spencer. – Alfie Lau

Free up the fun with your RV. One of the many fun things about spring and summer is being able to use your recreational vehicle. No matter what kind of RV you have - a trailer, camper or motor home - here are some BCAA tips for a worry-free RV season. Review the declared value annually: Unlike standard private passenger vehicles, the insured value of RVs is based on their declared value. This is the actual cash value at the time you are insuring it. What to consider when determining the value:

“I suggest this as a start point for the creation of a real vision,” said Jakeman, who said looking outside the box is an alternative. “Can we recreate a research school or a pilot school here?” said Jakeman. “We’ve got a unique school in a natural, grounded setting.” Jakeman suggested the board and trustees extend the 45-day consolidation/ closure process and look at a bigger vision. “We’d love to see you come up with a creative solution,” she said. Wednesday night’s meeting was the first of two scheduled community meetings. The next one is on May 11 at 7 p.m. at Richard McBride, with Woudzia assuring the public that if there is a need for further meetings, the board will look at that option.

Travelling to make a difference Volunteer work in Nepal opens eyes for a family from New Westminster BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
Connie Fenyo has discovered that when you give to others, you often get a lot more back in return. Fenyo, president of the New Westminster-based Dye and Durham Corporation, daughter Mercedes and son Nick did some research, registered with International Volunteers and set off on a trip to Nepal last August. For three weeks, they lived with children in an orphanage in Bhaktapor. “Highly recommended,” she said about volunteering. “It’s good for the soul and it helps to put your life into perspective.” Fenyo said the experience allowed her family to take a holiday together and see another part of the world – and to make a difference. She’s encourages anyone who has the opportunity to volunteer, either at home or abroad, to do so as it makes a difference. “This is a really great country we live in,” she said about their desire to volunteer abroad. “The difference between reading about it in the textbooks and seeing it firsthand is night and day.” Fenyo suggests anyone wanting to combine a trip with a volunteer experience read Frommer’s 500 Places Where You Can Make a Difference because it contains a wide range of opportunities that appeal to a variety of interests. Each member of her family read the book and came up with a list of the places of interest, before they agreed on a location and volunteer opportunity. “It’s something I wanted us to do as a family,” she said. “I’d like them to grow up to be compassionate individuals. That usually comes if there is an awareness.” Prior to their trip, they received cultural

HOT DOGS IN CARS!
There are many dogs every year that suffer heat stroke/heat exhaustion, or even death, due to the neglect of some dog owners who do not understand how severely a vehicle can heat up in even a short period of time. For instance, when it is 25 degrees outside, the inside of the vehicle can heat up to 20 degrees hotter – that’s a scalding 45 degrees! Clearly, this would be a serious risk to a dog trapped inside. Dogs cool themselves by panting and sweating through their paws; if they are in a vehicle that is too hot, they are unable to do either of these as the air and the upholstery their paws are touching are too hot. Even a vehicle parked in the shade with the windows open is not sufﬁciently cool. HEATSTROKE/EXHAUSTION SYMPTOMS: - extreme heavy panting - excessive salivation - red tongue & lips red (eventually turning to blue)
HUGO is a Staffordshire/terrier mix who quite likes the company of other dogs. Hugo has great energy and gets along with everyone. Call New Westminster Animal Shelter 604-519-2008
Always Call Glenn!
If your dog is exhibiting any of the above symptoms, act in the following manner: - remove from vehicle immediately to a shady cool spot - wet paws & dog with cool (not too cold) water - offer cool water to drink - take to veterinarian for further treatment - DO NOT USE ICE If you know you are going out for the day and your dog has to be in the vehicle even for 5 minutes alone, we urge you to leave the dog at home – he/she will be much happier on a bed with a chewy or a nice treat.

accustomed to being cared for by an adult when they were sick. “When they are sick, there was no one to comfort them. They will go and crawl under the covers. They retreat. That is how they help themselves. They don’t say ‘I’m sick’. They just retreat,” she said. “There is nobody to take care of them. When we were giving them aspirin and trying to keep the fever down with cold compresses, the others saw we did care about them. After that, they were very open with us, very friendly with us.” A few days after arriving at the orphanage, the kitchen was locked because there was no rice. “If there is no rice, they don’t eat,” Fenyo said. “That blew me away because we were eating their rice. That was a bit of a shocker. We decided we needed to do something about that. It fits very well with what we do as a company.” One of the philosophies of Dye and Durham is that it’s very important to contribute to the broader community. The company supports local groups such as New Westminster Family Place. “It’s a firm belief,” Fenyo said. “It’s one of the core principles we operate with at Dye and Durham.” The company’s managers are required to give back to the community in some way. “The company pays

for one volunteer day, per employee, per year,” Fenyo noted. “It has to be a registered charitable organization. That is a core principle here at Dye and Durham.” Dye and Durham, which supports local groups in New Westminster as well, is contributing to the improvements at the orphanage. Fenyo and her children brought items such as school supplies, musical instruments (such as a ukulele) and toothbrushes and toothpaste. While they introduced them to fun activities like blowing bubbles and doing art, they also talked
to them about issues such as the importance of washing hands before and after meals, especially important when 32 children share one latrine. “We didn’t want to be flying in, be the do-gooders and leave,” she said. “That’s not the purpose of the visit.” Following the family’s visit, Dye and Durham sponsored a clean water filtration system for the orphanage. “It takes the rainwater and filters the water. All the impurities are out,” Fenyo said. “They were taking bottles and filling it up with cloudy, dirty water. That is what they
were drinking for years.” Since September 2010, the company has been sponsoring ongoing monthly shipments to the orphanage through Hope and Home. “It’s the organizations like Hope and Home that make a difference for those children in need,” Fenyo said. “Because of the Hope and Home, they get these visits coming through.” Fenyo is thrilled that living conditions in the orphanage have improved dramatically since Hope and Home took over. “Since Hope and Home has been involved, the medical supports are there,
the level of care has gone up, there are other individuals minding the orphans now,” she said. “Things have improved, which is great. When we were there we got to see some of their other orphanages. It was night and day.” Although months have passed since Fenyo and her children volunteered at the orphanage, they haven’t forgotten the children they met during their trip. “Do you know how hard it is to leave 32 children who are asking you not to leave, not to forget them?” she said. “They made us little bracelets. Every single one of the letters is, ‘don’t forget us, brother,
sister, mother.’” Fenyo said Hope and Home has implemented many improvements to the orphanage that weren’t in place when the family visited. “Now those kids eat on a regular basis, now whose kids have clean water,” she said. “Every month we get photos. We know it is actually getting to the kids.” Fenyo said the orphanage still needs private sponsors because it’s difficult to take care of 32 children in one orphanage, and it’s not the only orphanage in Nepal. www.twitter.com/ TheresaMcManus

#312 - 550 ROYAL AVENUE
E-books are taking off
BY SUSAN BUSS contributor
he sale of e-books has hit an alltime new high. According to the American Publishing Association, e-book sales for the month of February were $90.3 million, an increase of 202 per cent over the same period last year. While e-books are not new, public interest, and the availability of new titles are. E-books have actually been around for decades. Project Gutenberg, for example, uploaded its first book in 1971. Granted, the Internet was still in its infancy, (the web still 20 years away), and the book was manually keyed into a computer. In 1990 they had 10 books available, 3,000 books in 2000, and today there are 33,000 free ebooks, all available at www.gutenberg.org. For libraries, electronic publishing is also not new, and libraries have been providing access to electronic journals and ebooks for more than three decades. What is new is the
plethora of popular literature and bestselling fiction, and the availability of mobile devices to read books with. This has been greatly facilitated by publishers adopting standard file formats, with epub becoming the dominant format. Mobile devices have also improved greatly in their use of typography and type-setting, important for being able to enlarge text without creating havoc with the formatting. Dedicated readers such as the Kindle and the Kobo abound, with apps for mobile phones. Tablets, the new player on the field (e.g. ipad or PlayBook) include e-reading software and apps to access bookstores and library collections online. I can now read a book on my phone, on an ultrathin, lightweight dedicated e-reader, on a computer, on my smart phone, and of course, the old fashioned way, on paper. Where is the library in all of this? If you visit the library’s website, equipped with your library card, you can download e-books directly to your computer (or smart phone), and transfer them to whichever device
you prefer. The one exception at this time is the Kindle, which still requires users to deal exclusively with Amazon. Sources for electronic books through the New Westminster Library’s website include British Columbia Libraries’ Library to Go program, the Online Books Page, Project Gutenberg, Teasures in full: Shakespeare in quatro, and the Perseus Digital Library. The Library to Go program alone had 250 new e-book arrivals as of Thursday, May 5. Options range from biographies, such as Malcolm X, A Life of Reinvention by Manny Marable, to novels such as Late Nights on Air by Elizabeth Hay. There are e-books of all kinds – fashion guides, historical novels, self-help books and more. Whatever your personal taste, there is a wide variety of fiction, non-fiction and resource materials available to library users. To check out the New Westminster Library’s ebook collection, visit www. nwpl.ca and look under Electronic Resources.

River caught in photos OUR PAST
ARCHIE & DALE MILLER
he Fraser River provides us with incredible scenery and many sites are connected to the history of this waterway and the lands that border its banks. We can look at archival photos showing the early steamboats, simple wharves, small towns, and First Nations villages that link to present day locations. For many years this mixture of past and present has been a major impetus for our own photography. A favourite place is upriver between Hope and the canyon where there is so much still remaining to experience. Emory Creek, now with a campsite where it joins the Fraser, was once an important townsite just downriver from Yale. Knowing what the old town looked like, it is possible to stand by the river and imagine the action of the past during the gold rush. Our photos show the Fraser swirling past, an old hydraulic hose nozzle and other mining reminders in the bush near the river. In the canyon near the
Alexandra Bridge, the old structure is a feature of a parksite that draws visitors to cross the river’s west bank to seek out reminders of the old highway. On the east side of the river, signs of the original Cariboo Road can be identified in the brush on the hillsides and across the rocky slopes. Farther north, still following the Fraser, stark canyons near Riske Creek tell stories of a different landscape. Old settlements like Soda Creek, with a couple of gold rush buildings and a cemetery on the hillside from which visitors to the graves have an incredible view. Back down near the river’s mouth, we can find reminders of the past through old cannery buildings, old docks remembered through orderly sets of time worn piles standing as they have for
decades, and sometimes a mound of rotting timbers from what – a house, barn, a wharf, a wagon, a boat? There is much to see, much to learn about, and many photographs to take. For years our cameras have captured these visual stories. From an early Kodak Starflash through SLRs with multiple lens, to digital, the draw is the same and the memories captured remain wonderful and exciting. We are looking forward to bringing a collection of our Fraser River photos, past and present, archival and personal, for a presentation at the Fraser River Discovery Centre. The showing will be on Thursday, May 12, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Discovery Centre at 788 Quayside Dr. The presentation is by donation and the Centre asks that you preregister.

Fill the pot Shredding for the firefighters BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Local schoolchildren will be learning about Honour House and how they can help the local facility. Honour House will provide accommodations for the families of Canadian Forces and first responders (ambulance, fire and law enforcement) while they are receiving care in Metro Vancouver. It’s located on St. George Street in New Westminster. The New Westminster Lions Club teamed up with the local school district on a “Penny in the Pot” challenge to raise money for Honour House. Five local students appeared before city council April 18 seeking the city’s support for the fundraiser. “They are hoping to raise a penny for every person in New Westminster,” said Vic Leach, who is handling publicity for the New Westminster Lions Club. “They challenged council to meet that.” The students also took a collection in council chambers and raised $69 for the Penny in the Pot fundraiser. They’re striving to raise 66,800 pennies – one for every resident. “That is $668. They are at 10 per cent,” Leach said.
“They are all pumped up. They really want to get behind the campaign.” In the coming weeks, representatives from Honour House and first responders will be attending school assemblies. “Kids understand needing help in times of danger or crisis, but who is there to help when agents of public safety and security have fallen?” said a press release from the Lions. “Over the next three weeks, all New Westminster public school students will learn about the role of Honour House from first responders.” After challenging the City of New Westminster to meet or beat the amount they collect, the students will be challenging other school districts to raise funds for Honour House. “We want the campaign to go provincewide,” Leach said. Honour House will be located in New Westminster but it will provide accommodations for up to 10 first responders and their families from around the province. The New Westminster Lions Club will also be raising funds for Honour House at its June 19 pancake breakfast at the Armouries. The group is expecting 1,200 to 1,500 people to attend.

Although the Hyack Festival Association only recently unveiled its brand new float, it’s already earning accolades. The float, unveiled at city hall on April 11, will be traveling to dozens of parades this year throughout the Pacific Northwest. Royal City residents can check it out in the Hyack International Parade, on Saturday, May 28. “This year we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Hyack Festival Association with its current theme, Fabulous at 40,” said Hyack president Rick Molstad. “Heritage is very important in New Westminster. The float consists of maypoles, which represent a 140year tradition in New Westminster. Originally occurring in 1870, Grade 5 schoolchildren in New Westminster assemble in Queen’s Park on May Day to dance around many maypoles erected on the field with colourful ribbons wrapping the pole as the children dance in intri-
cate patterns, which have endured through the years. Many generations of New Westminster residents fondly recall their opportunity to dance around the maypole in a New Westminster tradition.” Hyack’s new float picked up the Princess award at the Daffodil Festival Parade. Stay tuned for more details about the Hyack Festival, which runs from May 21 to 28

(31 Years) New Westminster City Police December 27, 1921 – April 24, 2011 It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our Beloved Husband, Dad and Grandpa, who passed away Sunday April 24, 2011 with wife Eileen, daughter Cathy and son-in-law Kevin by his side. Doug is predeceased by his parents Frederick & Mildred Sandford, twin Brother Norman, brother & sister William & Ethel. He will be deeply missed by Eileen, Cathy, Kevin, Grandson Michael (Courtnie) and Granddaughter Michelle (Andrew). Doug is also survived by his Brother-in-law Shaun Fetigan (London, England) Brother-in-law Henry Fetigan (Janie), nephews, nieces, great nephew & nieces. Doug was born and raised in Vancouver. When he is was 19 years old he joined the R.C.M.P. Doug then enlisted in the Army and joined the Canadian Scottish Regiment. During WWII in 1946 he met and married his Beloved Eileen in London, England. After the war he became a part of the New Westminster City Police Dept until he retired in 1979. Doug was an avid shooter and member of the Totem & Coast Marksman Gun Clubs & won many Shooting Competitions during his Police Career in Canada and the USA. He also enjoyed Duck Hunting, Reloading, ﬁshing with Cathy and of course his “gardening”! But most of all Doug loved his family and his best friend and loving wife of 65 years Eileen. He enjoyed the time that he spent with Cathy, Kevin, Michael and Michelle and his many four-legged companions too! He has left a very large hole in all of our hearts. As Doug’s Granddaughter Michelle once said, “Grandpa, God broke the mold when he made you”! He was our world. “Dad, you will always be the Wind Beneath My Wings”. The family would especially like to thank everyone at the George Derby Centre for the wonderful care that they gave to Doug. Memorial service to be held Saturday, May 14, 2011 at 2:00PM at Columbia-Bowell Funeral Chapel 219 6th Street New Westminster. In lieu of ﬂowers please make donations to the George Derby Centre.

Responding Rather Than Reacting to Unemployment
This article is by Chris Newell, Career Coach and Facilitator with Transitions Career & Business Chris Newell Consultants. When people are faced with unemployment – for any reason - they experience confusion, fear, frustration, insecurity and feelings of being overwhelmed. Not having a job, means not having a pay cheque, which means not having money coming in, which means our survival is jeopardized. It’s scary to think that we may not have our basic needs met; after all, we need shelter, food, clothing, and medical care. It’s natural to panic when our livelihood is lost. However, I think it’s very important for people at this time to stop and assess their inner and outer resources so that they don’t allow their fears to get the best of them. Making hasty decisions from a place of fear and anxiety can lead to ineffective and unsatisfactory outcomes in the future. It can actually cost more in the end: financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually. While being out of work is certainly a stressful time, make sure you give yourself a chance to respond to the situation objectively. Seek out information, resources, guidance and services to help you with all aspects of your life and career management. Don’t just react, and run out to find a job - any job – because ‘you’ve got to pay the bills’, without first considering how you can maximize this time to explore, invest and secure a purposeful career for you. Sure, the process could take longer, and there may be more time, money, energy and education involved, but the pay off could sustain you in so many ways, and actually benefit you intellectually and creatively as well as financially. You certainly would be more in control of your life, by making well thought-out decisions based on research, planning and experimenting, rather than just rushing into another job that could turn out to be a disaster. The Transitions Program, a free 3 week career exploration program is available to all unemployed people in the Lower Mainland. For information call 604-434-1177 or 604-681-2774.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: Continue to chase money. This week is relatively smooth, unhurried. Sunday holds a few frustrations if you wander aﬁeld after outside goals or adventure. Instead, stay home, garden, repair, or soak up nature. Romance, creative surges, pleasure and beauty surge Monday/Tuesday – you’re a winner! Tackle chores Wednesday/Thursday, buy machinery, seek health cures, employment or employees – you’ll succeed. Relationships face the deep, slow pulling apart you’ve noticed in recent years, but Saturday shows the cure. The problem is your ambition: the cure is another’s – support it. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your energy, effectiveness and charisma rise nicely! Don’t expect everything, as you’re in the trough that comes just before the big luck wave swells. That trough lasts to June 4 – ﬁve more weeks. Then 53 weeks of great, life-changing luck begin! Don’t waste your present energy: you can solve problems that would usually stymie you, can accomplish unusual feats. Focus your abilities on solving whatever has held you back. The main thing: to clear the way for big, lucky things June onward. Home’s sweet, good Monday/Tuesday. Romance, creativity midweek. Work, Friday. A good week! Gemini May 21-June 20: Continue to rest, plan, pray, meditate. Be charitable, deal with government agencies, institutions. Wishes can still come true, but consider this: wishes that lead to freedom are much more viable than those that lead to depth, darkness, lust, security, investment. Soon, you will get a chance for these deeper things (June 2011June 2012) but over the entire rest of this decade, these deeper things will “disagree” with ethics, law, friendship, lighter laughter – and the lighter will win. This also means light romance will conquer deep romance. Buy nothing Sunday. Success, all week!

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy and charisma step up a notch Sunday – conquer problems, seek solutions. Chase money Monday/Tuesday – and chase friends, contacts, information Wednesday/Thursday – luck accompanies you in both endeavours! Be home, pay attention to the needs of children, parents Friday/Saturday. Take a rest after a lucky, active week. Wishes can come true this week and next, especially in career and social arenas. But realize your career is changing deeply (and in many cases suddenly) over the next eight years: in-depth research, investment, power plays, secrets play a bigger role. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Chase ambitions, and the people who can grant them. You’ll be tested, but you’ll win an “A!” Rest Sunday, plan and prepare – but be careful with ﬁre, hot irons and ethical/ legal temptations. Your energy and charisma soar Monday/Tuesday – get out and impress people, especially bosses, VIPs, parents and authorities. Chase money (e.g., ask for a pay raise, seek new clients) Wednesday/Thursday. These are four successful, satisfying days – by Friday/Saturday you’ll be ready to socialize, dream, wish and enjoy your optimism – though it will be a sober optimism. Until 2019, love succeeds! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A gentle, compassionate understanding ﬂows over you. You might fall in love. Actually, someone is likely more impressed with you than vice-versa, Wednesday/Thursday. Still, you might fall in love. Something is working powerfully to change your life – it could be sex, could be ﬁnances, a move, a secret, an urge – Charlie Sheen is a Virgo, and a hero, because he is embodying the Virgo urge right now. Behind-scenes actions, government and administrative chores succeed Monday/Tuesday. Charge forth and chase a major goal Wednesday/ Thursday! Money needs care Friday/Saturday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Most trends/occurrences are split into two streams: open relationships, and the more private, behind-scenes interactions. E.g., you are meeting challenging but lucky people or bright, obvious opportunities – these can quickly turn to intimacy, mutual ﬁnancial funding, investment, detective work, or lifestyle commitments. Look for friendship on the surface, bonding underneath. Soon, this “deeper side” will increase – and by June onward, for a year, it will grow very lucky. But for now, the luck resides in the meeting, the seeing, relocation, pursuing new horizons and opportunities. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: This month doesn’t exactly offer you the prize with a ﬂourish of easy luck, but it does give you a real preview of the luck to come, June 2011to June 2012. The prize involves a relationship. It could be an opportunity in business, new life horizons, love/marriage, fame, contract negotiations. It will arise because you impress or please someone, because you’re diplomatic and focused on another’s needs and desires. (You’re an expert at that.) This week, study your ethics Sunday: right, wrong? Your ambitions meet luck Monday/Tuesday; your hopes meet “a friend” Wednesday/Thursday! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Lots of work faces you – you might as well plod through. Recent romantic, pleasurable, creative or child-oriented ventures remain active, lucky. The year ahead (starting in a week or two) will expand your duties, so pack in some last-minute pleasure and relaxation now, while you can. You might, in the six weeks ahead, stumble upon a creative work situation – grab it. A co-worker romance might develop. Cautious Sunday: traps exist. Wisdom, gentle love ﬂow Monday/Tuesday. Be ambitious Wednesday/ Thursday – success accompanies you! Your mood’s happier than events, late week.

May 8 - 14, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: You’re riding a minor winning streak, but it’s good practice for the “big wave” that’s coming June 2011 through June 2012. That time will bring “beneﬁts with responsibilities” in romance, creative projects, speculative ventures, pleasure, vacation, and children’s talents. These very things ﬁll May, so enjoy life, relax and pursue love! A relationship gives you friction Sunday. Life’s depths, lust, ﬁnances, meet with luck Monday/Tuesday. Gentle love, understanding ﬁll Wednesday/Thursday. You feel ambitious Friday/Saturday, but use a light touch if others react unexpectedly. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The focus lies on home, family, recuperation, nature, garden, soul, stomach, security, real estate, retirement, endings and beginnings. This period isn’t ultra-important at the moment, but it will become the source of your luck from June 2011 to June 2012. So keep your eyes open, your thoughts ticking. Chores might frustrate Sunday: proceed cautiously, especially around power tools. Relationships might be competitive Monday/ Tuesday, but they’re also lucky, even loving, so plunge in! Investments, debt, sex, intimate commitments, lifestyle changes proceed well Wednesday/Thursday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Romance has a few snags Sunday – go slow. Tackle chores or buy machinery,tools Monday/Tuesday.If unemployed,look for work, especially Tuesday afternoon. A whole grabbag of opportunities faces you Wednesday/Thursday.
