Celebrating Eva’s spirit: Peter Yi and Bill Markvoort with 65 Red Roses, an art project dedicated to the memory of Eva Markvoort, who died in March after a lifelong battle with cystic ﬁbrosis. The art is on display at Hwang and Company law ﬁrm on Columbia Street.

Eva’s legacy lives on through art
BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
Eva Markvoort’s remarkable spirit has helped spark an unprecedented artistic collaboration in Canada – and you won’t have to go far to find it.
Spearheaded by New Westminster residents Angela Au Hemphill and Ian Hemphill, 65 members of the Federation of Canadian Artists created a piece of artwork in honour of Markvoort, a Royal City resident who passed away March 27 after a lifelong battle with cystic fibrosis.
Artists contributing to the project include Robert Bateman, Alan Wylie, Mike Svob, Robert Genn and Au Hemphill. “We ended up with 65 world-class artists,” Hemphill told The Record recently. “There are some real players on that list. … This is quite a historic event.”
The concept was to have 65 artists contribute a single painting of a red rose, with all of the tiles being combined into one composite painting. Au Hemphill suggested the idea to the Federation of Canadian Artists, which ◗Eva Page 8

who recently sent in an anonymous tip and to the driver to come forward and identify themselves. “It says a lot about a person when they have the courage to come forward on their own, under such difficult circumstanc-
es,” said Melanie Gunderson, Megan’s mom. “It says a lot about the person you are. We are hoping the tipster will help us out once again.” Gunderson said it’s a parent’s responsibility to keep their children safe.
“I have to take blame for what happened because I wasn’t able to keep her safe,” she said. “I am hoping that someone will share that with me. There’s still a big piece missing that would help us find closure.”

Summer ﬁre safety tips Use common sense to prevent ﬁres
A ﬁre hazard is an object or an activity that has the potential to cause a ﬁre. Use common sense to stop ﬁre hazards from becoming a ﬁre incident and enjoy a safe summer season.
The Hot Shots! Photo Contest is brought to you by the City of New Westminster, Planning Division
Log on for News & Updates Stay up-to-date on the latest news: www.newwestcity.ca/queensborough
Smoking: Smoking poses many ﬁre hazards, but none more so than carelessly tossing a cigarette butt on the ground. Dry grass, dead leaves, and twigs on the ground can provide fuel for very fastmoving wildﬁres. Leaving cigarette lighters or matchers lying around is almost an invitation to a curious child to play with ﬁre.
Gasoline: Vapours from gasoline can catch ﬁre from a small spark. If gasoline vapors ignite, one gallon can explode with the same force as 14 sticks of dynamite. • Never use gasoline on a campﬁre or charcoal barbecue. • Use approved storage containers. • Avoid smoking around gasoline. • When re-fuelling avoid spilling by using a funnel. • Ensure adequate ventilation when dispensing gasoline. Burn injuries: Burns can happen quickly when you contact with hot objects or ﬂames. If you burn yourself, immediately run the affected area under cool water for at least ﬁve minutes. If your burn is serious (charring, blistering) seek medical attention right away. Wildﬁres: If you live near parks or forests, it is important to design and maintain your home and landscaping with wildﬁre-safety in mind. You can follow simple steps to make your home ﬁre safe. You will not only reduce the threat to your property, but you help protect your home and family too. Visit www.bcwildﬁre.ca for more information. Remember – there is no outdoor burning permitted in New Westminster.
Capture your favourite moments in Queensborough and you could win cash or community centre passes. Winning photos will be published!
Hot Shots! Photo Contest
• Make sure to put cigarettes out completely. • Avoid using ﬂower pots as ashtrays. Peat moss can ignite and cause a ﬁre. • Use large and deep ashtrays, partially ﬁlled with water. • Keep lighters and matches out of the reach of children. • Remove debris and dry vegetation from your yard. Barbecues: Heat or ﬂames from a barbecue can ignite nearby vegetation, wood, vinyl siding, paper towels and similar items. • Barbecue with safety in mind. • Keep barbecues a safe distance from anything combustible. • Keep young children and pets away from barbecues.

Megan: Police urge tipster to come forward ◗ continued from page 1
Megan had been gardening with her mother and ran inside to get a hat to protect her blonde head from the sun. The little girl then saw a van that looked like her father’s and ran out towards the vehicle, probably thinking her dad was coming home. Megan was fatally injured when the vehicle struck her in front of her home at 239 Pembina St., and the suspect vehicle driver failed to remain at the scene. A potential suspect driver was identified early in the investigation, but police investigators eliminated that person as the driver of the vehicle in the fatal incident. While the file has remained open, police recently ramped up their investigation after receiving an anonymous, typed letter in the mail that contained “crucial information” about the case. “It must have taken an incredible amount of courage,” Gunderson said about the tipster’s letter. “It has renewed our hope that a final piece of this will get some answers.” Pregnant at the time Megan was killed, Melanie was due that day and delivered daughter Madison almost two days after Megan’s death. The family has tried to keep Megan’s memory alive, and a playground in Ryall Park in named in her memory. Sgt. Gary Weishaar said the tipster has “crucial information to this investigation” and appealed to the person to contact police. “We need you to identify yourself,” he said. “You have come this far. We believe you want to go all the way. We need you, the Gunderson family needs you, Megan needs you.” Appealing to the tipster and the driver to come forward, Weishaar said that keeping information about the case to themselves for 14 years has been a burden. He said the driver has also been carrying the guilt of the accident, always looking over her shoulder, struggling to sleep at night and wondering if each knock at the door was a visit from the police. “Now is the time,” he said. “It’s the 11th hour for you.” Weishaar said police have evidence

The Megan Gunderson tips line can be reached at 604-529-2430. “Megan has got her own hotline waiting for your call,” Weishaar said. “We need our tipster and the driver to step forward.” Melanie Gunderson, accompanied by husband Craig and daughter Candice, attended Friday’s press conference. Weishaar told media that it’s been an emotional few weeks for the family, since they learned police had received new information about the case. To protect the ongoing investigation, Weishaar said some facts can’t be shared at this time, such as whether the anonymous tip was typed on a computer or typewriter. He also couldn’t comment on the possible connection between the tipster and the driver who hit Megan. “We are at a sensitive juncture of this investigation, as you can appreciate,” he said. “There is details, there is evidence we

Weishaar said the tipster has no reason to fear stepping forward. A woman in her mid- to late 30s with brown hair was seen driving a 1990s red Dodge Caravan or Plymouth Voyager at the time of the accident.

where he’s being treated for a collapsed lung and burns to his mouth and throat. “He has burned his voice box. He needs a tracheotomy,” McEvoy said. “His tongue is totally black. He is in rough shape.” McEvoy is a friend of Harley’s owners, Jennifer Szoke and her eight-year-old son Nate. “He said, I hope Harley gets better soon because I can’t sleep in this house without him,” McEvoy said of Nate. The single mom doesn’t have the funds that will be required to nurse Harley back to health. The veterinarian expects he could make a full recovery with proper care. McEvoy helped her friend secure a loan so the veterinarian could begin treatment. “It is $2,500 to start and then probably at least $5,000,” McEvoy said. “Harley is only two years old. He is packed with

A website has been set up to accept PayPal donations to help with Harley’s hospital costs. It is found at http://sites. google.com/site/harleydonationsite/. Trev Deeley Motorcycles wants to help Harley get his roar back. The company will be setting up a collection box for Harley at its Vancouver location and at the Royal City Show and Shine on Sunday, July 11. New Westminster Animal Control Service is urging residents to be vigilant in protecting their cats after the alleged incident of animal abuse.

Mayor takes stand in lawsuit Former Windsor Hotel owner suing city over handling of rezoning
BY ANDREW FLEMING REPORTER email@example.com
Mayor Wayne Wright took the stand in a New Westminster courtroom on Thursday, testifying in a civil lawsuit brought against the City of New Westminster and its former director of development services, Tim Whitehead. Nirmal Walia, the former owner of the Windsor Hotel at 738 Columbia St., is suing for gross negligence and damages. He claims he was told that if he sold the property to a developer, the city would undertake any necessary rezoning to enable him to relocate his private liquor store to a new location on 12th Street. Walia sold the property to Peter Newall of Ballenas Project Management, who then demolished the building to build the new Downtown Interurban condominium tower, for $2 million but never received approval from the city to relocate his liquor store. He has since lost both his provincial pub and liquor store licences. Although the mayor was unable to recall many of the specific details of four years ago under questioning

IN MY OPINION
Copyright in letters and other materials submitted voluntarily to the Publisher and accepted for publication remains with the author, but the Publisher and its licensees may freely reproduce them in print, electronic or other forms.
British Columbia voters deserve the truth about the HST
Premier Gordon Campbell admits the public deserves answers explaining why the B.C. Liberals implemented the HST after pledging not to during the election (HST will help B.C.’s economy, In My Opinion, The Record, July 3). New Democrats couldn’t agree more. But, unfortunately, the premier hasn’t offered any honest answers to the critical questions British Columbians are asking. British Columbians look to their political leaders to represent the people who elected them, to tell the truth and keep their promises. But Gordon Campbell and the B.C. Liberals have done just the opposite. They pledged – on B.C. Liberal Party letterhead
– not to bring in the HST, and then after the election went back on their word. And despite more than 700,000 British Columbians signing the initiative petition, the B.C. Liberals refuse to listen to the will of the people. British Columbians don’t buy the feeble excuses trotted out by the premier trying, yet failing, to explain why his government brought in the HST. And the British Columbia Liberal government’s plan to spend millions on pro-HST propaganda over the summer won’t make the public anger go away. If the B.C. Liberals want to finally be honest with British Columbians about the HST, they should admit they deceived voters and release the uncensored documents that will show the reality of when they started planning the HST.

McFadyen, a longtime New Westminster resident, heard about the contest and decided to see if the city could earn funds for the youth centre that’s now under construction in Moody Park. “I am still in a bit of shock,” he said about writing a submission that made it to the top 20. “I did it on impulse more than anything. I knew at the time that the (fundraising) campaign was strug-
gling a bit.” New Westminster and Nelson will face off on July 23 in online voting. “You can vote as many times as you want. It is important people go online and vote and vote and vote some more,” said McFadyen.

Taxes: ‘Tricks’ just aren’t good enough ◗ continued from page 6
The government claims families will be better off with the HST because prices will go down over time – oh, except when government is doing the pricing. One example is the PST on liquor, which will fall from 10 to seven per cent under harmonization. Don’t raise your glass in celebration too soon, folks, because the government will increase the
wholesale mark-up on alcohol to keep its tax grab the same. The government’s claim that people will be better off with the HST is difficult to square in the face of these other tax hikes. To ensure families are better off, government must reduce the total family tax burden – sly tricks won’t do. The government must eliminate additional taxes
like the carbon tax and the health tax and reduce the burden of the HST by reducing the harmonized rate from 12 to 10 per cent. The possibilities for protecting families from the tax shift are endless, unlike people’s patience with government’s tax sleight of hand.

THE BEST FROM OUR BLOGS The following is an excerpt from a post this week in Theresa McManus’s blog, Only in New West, available on our website. Vance McFadyen speaks from the heart – and it could help the New Westminster youth centre. The Youth Centre at Moody Park has been selected as one of 20 finalists in the Kraft Celebration Tour, a national initiative launched by Kraft that will see 10 communities (one in each province) profiled on TSN’s Sportcentre broad-
The decision of the federal government to no longer do the long form of the census will erode women’s rights. This survey was the sole avenue we had to tally unpaid work and was only reluctantly provided after a hard-fought battle across the country headed by homemaker Carol Lees of Saskatoon in 1993. The data from the long form was used by women’s groups to let government see how much of the economy depends on free labour of women in the home, and it gave legislators new perspective on careerfamily balance, gender equality and the third wave of women’s rights. To substitute a new survey but not publish results risks silencing, yet again, the voices of women. The contributions of homemakers will not be fairly recognized by abandoning the collection of data on the roles they play. Results must be published.

Re: HST will help B.C.’s economy, In My Opinion, by Premier Gordon Campbell, The Record, July 3 HST did not allow the province to set their own tax rates. This they could do already and did when they lowered income taxes for everyone. Now as a result he admits that the provincial financial situation has deteriorated significantly. His answer is a flat tax – the same for everyone regardless of income. HST does not make better competition for any business. It only puts prices up. It does not make higher wages nor lower prices. There are no benefits. It strengthens neither economy nor community. The “more revenues” that come from any kind of sales tax are expensively had, for there are too many hands collecting the tax, and it is unfair as smaller incomes pay a higher percentage of income than larger. Cutting income taxes as done by both provincial and federal governments helped neither the economy nor investment. All sales taxes should be abolished. Government income should come through income tax and not a flock of
fees. Strangely, at the end of the premier’s opinion item, he admitted that HST has not been good.

Two new police board members named BY ANDREW FLEMING REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The New Westminster Police Board has two newly appointed faces. Capt. Allen Domaas and Rebecca Maurer were both recently named to the local police board by B.C.’s lieutenant-governor, Steven Point. Domaas is a former president and CEO of the Fraser River Port Authority, director of the Association of Canadian Port Authorities and is currently the president of the Westminster Club. Maurer is the director of human resources and operations for
the Health Sciences Association of B.C., a board member of the Partners in the Horn of Africa aid organization and a mother of two who also finds the time to serve on a number of community organizations such as Royal City Youth Soccer and the city’s community and social issues committee. “There was an ad in the paper soliciting applications for the position, and I thought it would be a great fit for me, so I decided to throw my hat into the ring,” said Maurer. “I’ve really been feeling for the past couple of years that I was ready to volunteer for something that directly affected the commu-
nity as a whole.” The New Westminster police board is chaired by Mayor Wayne Wright and also includes Frankie G’s Boilerhouse Pub owner Ron Basran and Karen Foss, vicepresident of magazine publisher Canada Wide Media. The two newcomers are replacing outgoing board members Carol-Ann Hart, a lawyer, and retired judge Kim Husband. Current board members come from a wide variety of professional backgrounds, and most don’t have direct familiarity with law enforcement issues. This is how Wright, who is the one who made the final recommendation of potential candidates
to Attorney General Michael de Jong, seems to like it. “There’s been a lot of diversity, and they select people overall who will bring a variety of skills to the position, whether it’s administration or strategic planning or human resources,” said Domaas, who has an extensive background with operating boat patrol divisions with the Port Authority and working with local police agencies. “My experience with boards is what you’re looking for is a good mix of skills,” said Maurer. “You don’t want four people who all bring the same thing to the equation, you want people that have a mix of skills and abilities.”
Board members are appointed by an order-in-council of B.C.’s lieutenant-governor for a maximum of six years, through successive appointments. Police board members are chosen by the attorney general to reflect the demographics of their communities and are people who have demonstrated that they can act in the community’s best interest. The board meets once a month to provide civilian governance and oversight of the New Westminster Police Service. Members may also be asked to sit on committees or panels in order to deal with specific issues as they arise.
City gives nod to new patio at River’s Reach

Royal City residents should soon be able to enjoy a cool one – and a bite to eat – while sitting
outside in the fresh air at one of New Westminster’s busiest neighbourhood pubs. Council has approved a 26seat sidewalk patio at River’s Reach Pub at 320 Sixth St.
After receiving a resolution from the local government, the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch will make the final decision about amending the business’s liquor primary licence to
allow an outdoor patio. The city received two e-mails from residents in connection with the application. One was from a resident who wanted assurances the patio

A short version is scheduled to be re-aired on The Passionate Eye on CBC on July 26. Markvoort’s blog about life with cystic fibrosis inspired people across the world. Janet Brine, who is Markvoort’s mom, explains that young children who cannot pronounce “cystic fibrosis” sometimes call it “65 roses.” In choosing the name for her blog, Eva added “red” because it was her favourite colour. AFeb. 18, 2010 blog entry by Markvoort spoke of her strong desire to leave a legacy. “A mark on the world, a difference, some proof that I had been here, something to say that I mattered, that when my body left this world my soul had made its imprint,” she wrote on http://65redroses.livejour nal.com/ The original 65 Red Roses paintingiscurrentlyonview at Hwang and Company Law Corporation in the Westminster Building at 711 Columbia St. Donations are being accepted for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Temple wants help filling in ditches
Home marked for demolition BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
An 1887 home known as the Charles Digby House will be demolished. Council has authorized staff to issue a demolition permit for the house at 828 Royal Ave. and to remove the house from the city’s heritage register. A staff report says the house has been a concern of the city for about 10 years and has been issued a number of notices regarding unsightly premises, health and safety deficiencies and
substandard conditions. In addition, police have visited the site a number of times. “The house has deteriorated physically over the last two decades – a city report in 2001 stated that the entire building was tilting, sagging and cracking. “The building is no longer either salvageable or sturdy enough for relocation,” said the report. The city’s community heritage commission agrees that demolition is unavoidable because of the home’s structural condition.

The City of New Westminster is acting on a request for infilling of select ditches in Queensborough. The Khalsa Diwan Society, which owns the Sikh temple, and an adjoining neighbour approached the city about helping to fund infilling of some of the roadside ditches on Wood, Boyd and Boyne streets. They proposed the work be done through a local area service, which is a method of funding local infrastructure improvements that benefit specific properties. “Under the Community Charter, if a valid petition is received from at least 50 per cent of the owners of properties representing at least 50 per cent of the total assessed value of the land and improvements within the benefiting area, the local government may undertake the works and impose a local area service tax on all benefitting owners,” explained a staff report. “The Community Charter does not require that a local government contribute to the cost of local area services.” A staff report to council recommended that the request for a local area service for ditch infilling on
ditches as a local area service, noting that other neighbourhoods don’t have to get together to pay for underground mains through which their water flows. Lowrie said three landowners approached the city about the local area service, but 10 property owners would be affected. Council’s motion would start the process needed to consider work as part of a local area service. Some Queensborough residents have expressed frustration about the lack of progress by city hall in addressing drainage needs and urged the city to work toward implementing measures outlined in a drainage plan that was approved by city council in 2004. The city’s 2010 to 2014 financial plan allocates $200,000 annually for culvert replacement and roadside ditch re-grading, but it doesn’t provide any funds for infilling of roadside ditches or contributions to local area service initiatives.

Sense of History Research Services is tackling New Westminster’s arts and culture history in this weekend’s cemetery tour. The Sunday, July 11 cemetery tour will start at 3 p.m. near the Fraser Cemetery office at 100 Richmond St. Archie and Dale Miller note that this is the first tour of the year to start later in the day so participants can avoid the heat of the day. This cemetery tour will introduce people who played diverse roles in this part of the Royal City’s history. Examples will be given from the fields of music, theatre, writing and art. The cemetery tours are free, take about one-and-a-half to two hours and go rain or shine. Registration isn’t required. “Fraser Cemetery is the final resting place for many people who, it can safely be said, gave a great deal to the arts and culture of the Royal City,” said an e-mail about the tour.

Representatives for parent advisory councils and district parent advisory councils also attended. “There were about nine schools represented,” Paul said. “It was really good.”

Park set for celebration
BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
The new playground in Grimston Park is proving to be a hit among local kids. Construction of the new playground is complete, but some landscaping work is still to be done and some new turf will be laid down. “I had five parents stop me to tell me how wonderful it is,” said Claude LeDoux,
the city’s horticulture manager. “They are so excited. They love the way it looks.” The wading pool is also being repainted, which will require it to be closed to the public for a few days while the special paint dries. In addition to a new paint job, the wading pool has a new feature that will fill the pool with water. “We put in a fire hydrant,” LeDoux said. “It is off the ground. It fills it up.”
When it’s time to drain the pool at the end of the day, the water will flow down a meandering stream rather than going down the drain. Residents can celebrate the reopening of the playground at the Summerfest in Grimston Park event that’s taking place on Saturday, July 17. The event will include children’s crafts, live music, community displays and more.
Vintage vehicle returns to city Historic steamroller set to return home in time for the Royal City Show and Shine
BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
A steamroller that helped create some of New Westminster’s early streets has returned home after nearly three decades – and residents won’t have to wait long to check it out. The steamroller, which is 99 years old, left New Westminster in 1978 after sitting in the works yard for some time. It went to Burnaby Village Museum, then the Transportation Museum in Cloverdale and finally the Chilliwack Antique Powerland site that’s operated by Atchelitz Threshermen’s Association in Chilliwack. Colin Stevens, manager of New Westminster’s museum and archives, said the 35,000-pound steamroller returned to
New Westminster in late June. The vehicle is now safely stored in the city’s works yard until the city determines where to locate the vehicle. “It was built in 1911. We bought it new,” he said. “It was used from 1912 to 1969.” Stevens said the steamroller helped pave streets throughout the city, even hills. “It only has a parking brake. It weighs 10 tons,” he said. “There is a technique to using it.” While steam engine buffs would like to see the vehicle restored to working order, the city has to consider liability and safety issues. “At the very least it would need a cosmetic restoration,” Stevens said. “Luckily the Chilliwack group took pretty good care of it. It has actually survived in quite good condition.” The city hopes to display the steamroller at the Royal City Show and Shine, which takes place on Columbia Street on Sunday, July 11 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The city has yet to determine where the steamroller will be permanently located, but it will have to be in a place where it’s safe from vandals and the weather – likely inside a large building or its own shelter. It won’t be in the museum that will be included in the future multi-use civic centre because it’s too heavy. Stevens is excited about the vehicle’s return to the Royal City. “It was a bit out of sight, out of mind. It was not forgotten,” he said. “The museum kept track of it.” When “decision time” came earlier this year, the city decided to retain ownership of the machine. “I am glad the decision was made to bring it home. If it goes, it is gone forever,” Stevens said. “It is a one-of-a-kind piece for our city. I think it has the potential to become an iconic landmark.” While the vehicle has monetary value, Stevens said it also has tremendous ◗Steamroller Page 14

New Westminster Secondary School students will be participating in City Stage New West’s Stump City Stories for Youth project this upcoming September. In honour of the City of New Westminster’s 150th celebration in 2009, City Stage New West commissioned award-winning composer George Ryan to write a light-hearted musical based on the diverse history of New Westminster. The result was Stump City Stories, which was nominated for an Ovation Award for Best New Musical. Earlier this year, City Stage New West got the
green light from school superintendent John Woudzia to create a tailored-for-youth, shortened version of the full-length musical for NWSS students. The theatre’s volunteer staff has been raising funds to implement the project. City Stage New West solicited funds from local organizations. BMO Bank of Montreal was the first corporate supporter to step onboard with a donation, something City Stage New West considers fitting as a famous 1911 robbery at the Bank of Montreal in New Westminster is featured in the musical. “BMO is pleased to support a cultural project in New Westminster where youth will learn about the diverse history of the city and British Columbia in a truly engaging, fun and memorable way,” said Joanne Gassman, vicepresident of the BMO’s Vancouver suburban district. City Stage New West has also received com-
munity support from the City of New Westminster, the NWSS parent advisory committee, the Kiwanis Club, the Massey Helps program and Holy Trinity Cathedral. Many of the students will be directly involved with the Stump City Stories for Youth project through a NWSS chorus singing the show’s finale, So Much to Be Proud Of, alongside the professional cast. The project also includes teaching artists visiting the school and a student questionand-answer session with the performers. City Stage New West, a non-profit charitable society, is currently just shy of the $1,450 needed to meet its budget. Individuals or companies interested in supporting the project are invited to make a taxdeductible donation by e-mailing board president Pansy Jang at info@ citystagenewwest.org. A donation button will soon be located on the group’s website, www.citystage newwest.org.

They got to use it.”

Find advice on how to cook gluten-free BY PAIGE MACKENZIE CONTRIBUTOR email@example.com
ood allergies and intolerances are becoming more common as modern medicine discovers increasingly efficient and effective means to properly diagnose people suffering with intestinal discomfort. For people suffering from gluten intolerance or celiac disease there are plenty of books, blogs and magazines available with recipes and information. Your local library is often the
easiest way to access this information, whether it is through books, online access, or internet databases. The New Westminster Public Library holds approximately 30 titles on these subjects, many of which are cookbooks and can be found under the 641.563 call number. Below are a few of my favourites: ◗ The Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook, by Cybele Pascal: Much of the research surrounding gluten intolerances and celi-

ac disease have found that often other intolerances or allergies are present. For anyone who suffers from multiple allergies or intolerances or simply wishes to bake allergen-free, this book is an excellent resource. Pascal’s recipes vary from cupcakes to cookies to muffins and are all easy to follow. Moreover, her book offers various substitutions for replacing eggs, dairy and gluten flours. ◗ Gluten-free Girl, by Shauna
James Ahern: Anyone who has struggled for years to discover the source of constant fatigue, illness and discomfort will relate to Ahern’s description of her life before the diagnosis of celiac disease. Ahern giftedly describes her path to discovering the source of her physical and mental discomfort and the way in which she eventually found the food that loves her back. ◗ Gluten-free Cooking for Dummies, by Danna Korn and Connie Sarros: “Dummies” guides are
generally a good overview of any topic but are sometimes not taken seriously as legitimate sources of information. However, Korn and Sarros have done a very thorough job of covering the basics of a gluten-free lifestyle. Topics discussed include: what gluten is; exploring the connections between gluten and autism, depression and anxiety; gluten-free lifestyles and weight gain; gluten-free alternatives; and how to convert recipes to be gluten-free.

The New Westminster Historical Society is taking a look back at the beginnings of New Westminster as a city. A historical society program is set for July 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium at New Westminster Public Library, 716 Sixth Ave. The presentation, The Incorporation Of New Westminster – Fact Or Fiction, will look back to the events of July 1860, the New Westminster Municipal Council Act and whether the city was or was not incorporated that year. A press release notes that Archie and Dale Miller will walk the audience through this piece of historical work, based on previous in-depth study by Dale, and show that there really are many intriguing and conflicting bits and pieces to many “historical facts” about the city. Next month’s presentation will look at the first civic election. The program is free and everyone is welcome. There is no need to pre-register.

Making a difference: Stryker sales rep Jesse Butterﬁeld, Dr. Michael Piper, Mayor Wayne Wright and Gerda Suess from the Group of Five. The group raised enough money to buy a pressure monitor for Royal Columbian Hospital.
Group helps RCH Five raise funds to buy pressure monitoring equipment for hospital BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The Group of Five has raised enough cash to buy a new piece of equipment for Royal Columbian Hospital. The group, which consists of Mary Lou Chesman, Shirley Piper, Alana McIntyre, Marion Osterman, Jennifer Peyton, Helen Bodner and Gerda Suess, holds various fundraisers in order to buy
equipment for the hospital. The group’s latest purchase is a “pressure monitor” which is a device that helps monitor how much pressure blood is putting on a muscle and can be used by various departments at the hospital. In the worst cases, blood builds up and, if not released, can result in amputation because muscle dies. “It is useful in many, many different departments,” Piper said. “It was a great hospital need. We really needed this.” The Group of Five purchased the device from Stryker Canada, which
offered them a good deal on the device. The group formed to raise funds to purchase items for Royal Columbian Hospital that were needed but not being funded.

Summer marks 150 years from first election OUR PAST
ARCHIE & DALE MILLER
ew Westminster will mark another 150-year anniversary this summer – this time a two-part recognition. The first municipal form of government in Western Canada began here in July 1860, and in August 1860 the first civic election was held in the city. The site for the new city
was selected in February 1859, and surveying and clearing of the hillside began soon thereafter. As the workload increased and the needs for “infrastructure” grew greater, many in the town began to agitate for the ability to set their own goals without being controlled fully by the colonial government and Governor Douglas. After much discussion, Governor Douglas proclaimed the “New Westminster Municipal Council Act” in July 1860, paving the way for a locally elected government. The act enabled the formation of a municipal council of seven members, one of whom would be
chosen as “president” (mayor). The act also gave the city certain limited powers of taxation, and the money raised could only be used for a few very specific purposes, but it was a start. In early August 1860, the City of New Westminster held its first municipal election. Members of the first city council were Leonard McClure, W. J. Armstrong, Ebenezer Brown, William E. Cormack, Henry Holbrook, J.A.R. Homer, Angus Manson and John Ramage. Leonard McClure was chosen as the first president. Both the activities and results of July and August

of 1860 make for some very interesting stories. In the mid-1990s Dale Kerr, now Dale Miller of A Sense of History Research and this column, was researching early civic politics in order to compile a complete list of all members of New Westminster’s city council from the first to current date. In the process, she uncovered a wide range of fascinating stories relating to councils and especially the Municipal Council Act of 1860 – some so bizarre they are hard to believe today. She came to the startling conclusion that the term “incorpora-
tion,” as widely used to describe the 1860 creation of a locally elected government in the City of New Westminster, was and is used in error. The city’s incorporation did not come until 1871/1872. Her research on this topic and into the political history of the Royal City continues to the present day. Miller will be part of two presentations and a cemetery tour this summer to recognize the anniversaries and to explore this part of the early history of the city. On July 21, at the New Westminster Historical Society, she will present

Beginner golfer slices way to record
Rare double-eagle ace came in just eighth golf game BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR email@example.com
When it comes to beginner’s luck, no is feeling luckier than Cory Scott. The 29-year-old New Westminster resident scored a hole-in-one on the 18th hole at Burnaby Mountain Golf Course in the fading light of an early Friday, July 2 evening. What makes the feat special is it was just the eighth-ever game of golf for the beginner. But it gets better. The final hole on on the 6,211 yard north Burnaby course is a difficult parfour 340-yarder with a dogleg to the right flanked by high trees. Wes Hastings, a golf services associate at Burnaby Mountain for the past six years, said records kept at the links show 16 holes in one have been officially recorded since 2008, but none of them were ever longer than a par 3. “Holes in one happening on a par-four are very rare, I can tell you,” said Hastings. And facts online appear to back up the claim. Odds differ but most sources agree that for an average golfer the chances of holing out in one stroke is approximately a one-in12,000 shot. But when you factor in distance and go beyond a par-3, the percentages go up – way up. Getting a golf ball into the tiny cup in three strokes under par is called a double eagle, or albatross to the British. To make a double-eagle requires acing a par-4 or

Once in a lifeftime: New Westminster buddies Cory Scott, right, and golﬁng partner and mentor Carl Howard, still can’t believe the hole-in-one they had a part in at Burnaby Mountain on July 2. scoring a two on a par-5, both are much rarer than a hole-in-one sources suggest. Golf World magazine quoted Dean Knuth, inventor of the U.S. Golf Association’s slope rating system, as putting the feat at one million to one. According to Golf World, 631 aces were shot on the pro golfer’s tour in a 20-year span from 1983 to 2003, but just 56 doubleeagles. The article went on to say while approximately 40,000 aces are recorded each year in the U.S., in comparison only a couple of hundred double-eagles are reported. With the light of a
Friday evening fading, Scott teed up for the final hole of his sunset round at Burnaby Mountain and sliced the ball high into the trees. Carl Howard, Scott’s golfing mentor and one of the foursome that witnessed the event, continues the story. “Cory saw his ball going very right. It was into the trees and we thought it was lost. So Cory went and played on, hitting a second ball,” said Howard, who initially had enticed Scott to join the foursome, which also included Shane Polak and Clayton Hornby. “When we got on the green and (Scott) discovered it in the cup, he said
‘Hey that’s mine from the tee.’ It obviously went over the trees and onto the green in one shot.” Howard has enjoyed the feeling of scoring an albatross once in his 20 years of golf, once scoring a two on a par-5 hole at Fraserview with a 210yard approach shot. “But I was aiming at the hole,” he said. Scott picks up the incredible story. Prior to the game, Howard had given Scott two marked practice balls – both Top Flite Excel No. 3s with a black circle marker on them. Scott had lost one of them earlier in the round, but managed to keep the
second one for the last six holes, leading up to the 18th. “I can hit straight, but I’m learning. It does slice usually,” Scott said. “I had to drop another ball and I laid it up on the green. I went over to move my ball and pull the flag, and as I looked down there’s a ball in the frickin’ hole. I picked the ball out and I saw my ball with the black circle marker. Did I ever jump about 15 feet in the air. “Holy S##t, that’s my ball.” By the time the foursome signed their scorecards, left the Burnaby ◗Golf Page 24
Canada to defend ﬁeld title at worlds
BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR email@example.com
New Westminster’s Kevin Crowley has been added to Canada’s 24-man roster for the World lacrosse championships in Manchester, England July 10 to 24. The 21-year-old all-world midfielder on Canada’s 2008 world junior team was a late addition to the defending champions. The 6-4 Crowley had a standout year in the field game at Stony Brook University this season, scoring a single-season record 51 goals
in 17 games as a junior with the Seawolves. Following the NCAA Division I national championships, Crowley was named the intercollegiate player of the year and was also a finalist for the Tewaarton Trophy and a unanimous America East player of the year. He is also the only Stony Brook player to be in the top five in both goals, with 101, and assists, with 75. “Being recognized as one of five finalists for the Tewaarton Trophy that goes to the NCAA’s top lacrosse player in his junior year says a lot about Kevin
Crowley,” said Canada’s national lacrosse team executive director Dean French in a press release. Crowley will join New Westminster Salmonbellies’ Jordan Hall in Canada’s midfield. Also on the national squad are New Westminster Salmonbellies defender Curtis Manning and Burnaby’s Matt Brown on attack. Brown currently plays for the Denver Outlaws in pro Major League Lacrosse. Stony Brook teammate Jordan McBride is a non-travelling member on team Canada. Canada won the the last world
championships 15-10 over the U.S.A. in London, Ont. in 2006. It marked only the second time the Americans had lost a senior men’s title at the worlds since the championships were founded in 1967. Burnaby Laker junior Brian Gillis will be playing for the Republic of Ireland national team at the upcoming world championships. Gillis is eligible to play by virtue of his Irish grandparents on his father’s side. Ireland will be playing in a pool with South Korea, Slovakia and Switzerland.
Jordan McBride scored four times and Pete McFetridge added six points, including a pair of second-period goals, to lead the New Westminster Salmonbellies to a 14-11 win over Langley Wednesday. McBride, the game’s first star, sparked a fivegoal finish with two goals in a three-minute span in the final period to propel the senior A Salmonbellies to victory and first place in the Western Lacrosse Association. Trailing 10-9 at the fiveminute mark in the third period, McBride tallied his hat-trick goal on a power play. Less than two minutes later, Curtis Manning gave the visitors the lead with an unassisted goal. McBride then scored the eventual game-winner with his fourth of the game. Martin Cummings and Cliff Smith, with his second goal and fifth point of the game, gave New Westminster its margin of victory. McBride helped the ’Bellies on a similar fivegoal run in the middle period. With the score 5-3 in Langley’s favour after the opening 20 minutes, McBride scored back-toback markers 30 seconds apart, while McFetridge, with two goals, and Curtis Manning, with his first of a pair, also scored in the rally to give New Westminster a three-goal advantage. Langley countered with three goals to tie the game, heading into the third. Curtis Hodgson had a goal and two assists for the Salmonbellies, which moved two points ahead of Victoria in the league standings with their 10th win of the season in 13 starts. Matt Roik got the win in goal for the 10-3-0 Salmonbellies. New Westminster faced Maple Ridge at Queen’s Park Arena Thursday (after Record deadlines). The two teams meet again on Sunday in Maple Ridge. Game time is scheduled for 6:45 p.m.

The junior A New Westminster Salmonbellies have some soul-searching to do. For the third time in four starts, a slow start has cost New Westminster a victory following a 12-7 loss to the regular season B.C. junior A league champion Coquitlam Adanacs Wednesday. “Yeah, we definitely have to address that. You never want to start slow. It wasn’t a great effort,” said Salmonbellies head coach Dan Perreault. “At

Kirsti Shanks of New Westminster spoke loudly for the Coquitlam Silence under-18 Metro girls’ soccer team last weekend. The New Westminster Secondary grad scored the game-winning goal and then added an insurance tally to give the Metro-Ford club a 3-1 victory over the host Kamloops Blaze in the Youth Soccer Provincial A Cup championships last Saturday. Shanks tipped in a cross kick in the 82nd minute to break a 1-1 tie. Then with the clock ticking down in regulation time, Shanks broke in alone on the Blaze keeper and scored her second of the game.
this point in the season, they should be sitting there with ice packs. They have to come out like warriors. It’s playoffs.” Recent pickup Cody Bremner led the junior ’Bellies with a hat trick, bringing his contribution to seven points in two games since being traded from Nanaimo at the July 1 deadline. Tyler Digby, who had a goal and two assists in the loss, managed to take the B.C. junior A scoring title with 89 total points, just one point ahead of runner-up Casey Jackson of Victoria.
With a week off before the second round of playoffs, New Westminster has plenty of time to sort out a starting roster for the semifinals, said Perreault. “It’s a best-of-five, and if we get 18 or 20 players going, they’ll be back in. We’re looking for guys who want it.” In the opening round of playoffs, Delta tangles with the Burnaby Lakers, while Victoria and Nanaimo compete in an all-Island affair. Both best-of-three series start on Saturday. If necessary, a third game will be played on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.

Mountain pro shop and finished telling and retelling the events of that evening to every passerby, it was dark outside. But the events of that evening will no doubt be sticking with Scott for a long time to come. “It was awesome. I was pretty pumped up all weekend – still am. It’s pretty hard to believe,” Scott said. “I love it. It’s an awesome sport. I’m going to stick with this. I’m even thinking of taking a few lessons.” Don Mark, head professional at the Burnaby Mountain course, might be just the guy to show his form to. Mark said he would be interested to see Scott’s swing. “I’m not saying he didn’t do it, but I would have to see him hit a golf ball to see how far he can hit it, because it’s a long way,” Mark said of the course’s 18th hole. “I played (the hole) yesterday, and I was 290 yards, and I hit it pretty good.” Mark explained the fairway on the 18th hole at Burnaby Mountain is 200 yards past a stand of trees approximately 50 to 60 feet high. It then takes an extreme right turn and another 150 yards to the green that is protected by a sand trap in front. Mark added that the incredible ace on a very difficult hole would be the first hole-in-one on the 18th at Burnaby Mountain in the nine years he has been head pro at the course.

June 26, 1942 – June 24, 2010 It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Maureen in her 67th year. Born in Camrose, Alberta, Maureen moved to Burnaby, BC where she attended Edmonds Elementary School, Burnaby South & Central High Schools, before graduating from the Essondale School of Psychiatric Nursing. She later went on to have a successful career as a realtor in the New Westminster, Burnaby and Coquitlam areas. Maureen enjoyed an active lifestyle, as well as gardening, and treasured her time with family and friends. Maureen’s greatest joy was being grandma to her seven grandchildren, who knew her as their “Momee”. She will be remembered by all those who knew her as a hardworking, loving lady, with a wonderful smile. Maureen will be missed by her sisters, Cheryl and Judy (Richard), her three children, Christina (Randy), Angela (Paul) and Aaron (Kim), and her seven grandchildren – Brittany, Kyle, Emily, Benjamin, Makena, Summer, and Lilah. She was predeceased by her mother, Mildred, father, George, and step-mother, Grace. A heartfelt thank you is given to the staff at Buchanan Lodge, who showed Maureen great love and compassion, and to her wonderful care companions, Vikki and Christina, who brightened Maureen’s days. A celebration of life to honor Maureen will be held on Friday, July 16 at 10:30 a.m. at Buchanan Lodge, 409 Blair Avenue, New Westminster. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Maureen’s memory to The Salvation Army (www.salvtionarmy.ca).

CAREER COACH How to Feel Secure in Insecure Times
BEST Deal Restwell Matt Sets. Full wrty, Dble $319. Queen $339 King $559. Will deliver. 722-3636
This article is by Chris Newell, Career Coach Chris Newell and Facilitator with Transitions Career & Business Consultants. "May you live in interesting times" is reputed to be an ancient Chinese Proverb, and has been quoted by real and fictional figures throughout history. To me, this would suggest that people from each time will inevitably find events and situations to be interesting in some way. Today, we are experiencing our own "interesting time" with events in the world concerning technology, the environment, and the economy. Certainly what I witness most are people trying to make sense of today's world of work, which is so demanding and competitive and has contributed to feelings of frustration and overwhelm. There are many people with talent, skills and knowledge who are unemployed, and this situation can definitely dissolve their sense of purpose and confidence. I see this regularly in our program, where I connect with amazing people who are trying to regain their sense of hope and self. However, during these "times" it's important not to spend too much time alone, as internalizing doubts and fears can just exacerbate them. Reach out for support and find others who can empathise and understand you. It could be your friends or family; a program such as ours; or some other group, as long as you feel they are people you can trust. Call 604-681-2774 and ask about the Transitions Program, our government funded (no fee) three-week career exploration program available to anyone who is unemployed or under employed and eligible to work in Canada.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent continues on hibernation, home, rest, security, kids, nature, gardening, domestic repairs and on ending stale or unworkable projects, relationships or situations. This week is a cakewalk compared to the last seven days. Almost everything ﬂows smoothly, and the only possible contention arises Friday as you navigate an important relationship. One good thing about this day: you see clearly what you’re up against. Otherwise, Sunday’s great for domestic matters. A love affair is in the air Sunday-Tuesday. A career or work matter succeeds splendidly Tuesday-Thursday.
Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy and charisma ride a beautiful wave. Take advantage, start important projects, see and impress people, ask favours, make your bid – climb to the top of the heap! Your recent mild money luck has ebbed but there will be lots of talk, activity around money. You’ve been in communication mode in your career; now to early August, a graciousness and affection joins in. It’s a perfect time to chat up a boss, confer with colleagues, etc. A favourite sibling might call. This entire week is easy, smooth, productive – except Friday (be diplomatic). Home, nature best Saturday.
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This easy, productive week features career, ambition, prestige, dealings with higher-ups or authority ﬁgures (especially Sunday). Remember, this zone needs selﬂessness, caution and good morals through next March. If you think, “I’ll get away with this” – don’t do it, for your own sake! That said, proceed. If you’re stymied, “default” to security, family property concerns. (A mild “destiny luck” aids you in these, early week.) Your hopes and popularity rise Monday/Tuesday – get out, accept happiness! Rest, contemplate, plan mid-week. Your energy surges Friday/Saturday – diplomacy!
Taurus April 20-May 20: This is an easy, friendly, travel-prone week, Taurus. A great time to meet, talk, tackle paperwork, upgrade or buy a computer or telephony system. Sunday might begin a new project in these areas. Be restful, domestic Monday/ Tuesday, repair the stairs, cook, garden, take charge of future security for yourself and/or the kids. Oddly, on your friendly day (Sunday) secrets, solitude and domesticity are favoured; yet on your “relax at home” days (Monday/Tuesday) a new love might begin. Expect complex but fruitful “combinations.” Romance, pleasure, “happy risks” arrive Wednesday/ Thursday.
Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Rest, lie low and study your progress, Leo – especially Sunday. Solitude is a blessing all week, it allows you the time to accomplish some important background tasks. Friday is the only “caution day” this week (be careful with your speech to others, and avoid legal, romantic, relationship and similar forays until early afternoon). So use this time to engage the government, institutions, head ofﬁces, to reconnect with your spiritual side, to research, and to plan future action. Educational, legal, cultural, money and work matters are favoured Monday to Thursday. Travel, read Saturday.
Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: A sweet, mellow week! You understand what puzzled you before. You feel compassionate, you sense why society works, and what life is. Gentle, passionate love is possible (only possible: big passion begins 2011 onward). Culture, social rites, education, publishing, international travel/ contacts, intellectual pursuits are favoured, especially Sunday. Chase career, prestige Monday/Tuesday. You feel upbeat, optimistic, popular and a bit ﬂirtatious Wednesday/Thursday! Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan Friday/Saturday: an ambitious month starts soon. Caution, Friday to early p.m.
Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Popularity, light romance, optimism, bright new horizons and urges about the future – these bless your days now. Sunday is signiﬁcant – a new social (or organizational) contact, idea, or project might start. Your energy ebbs a bit Monday/Tuesday, so rest, enjoy a quiet breather. Contemplate and plan. Your energy and charisma surge upward Wednesday/Thursday – throw off your usual shyness, respond to someone’s “opening gesture,” seek friends, romance, love, intimacy, new ﬁnancial horizons. You’re noticed! Take care with money, don’t risk it, Friday daytime. This eve and Saturday, chase it.
Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Life’s mysteries and depths (sex, ﬁnance, mutual resources, loyalty/ betrayal, dreams, subconscious, critical health, commitments and consequences) – these remain front and centre, but not in any dire way. In fact, this is a week of success, smooth progress and gratifying results! So charge forward, invest, re-arrange debt, seek intimacy, grab funding, research, listen to your hunches. (Notice the phrase “mutual resources” – it means that whatever you do involves another in some way. E.g., an inheritance is “their money” until you get it.) Exercise caution Friday to mid-afternoon. You end happy!
Gemini May 21-June 20: The accent lies on money, earnings, buying, selling, memory, rote learning. Memorizing something, perhaps a big, complex thing, could aid you in future. This week ﬂows smoothly. Sunday might trigger a new money project or idea. Travel, talk, errands ﬁll a busy, happy Monday/ Tuesday. Something involving real estate, home, kids, ﬁnances, debt, security, investment or sex/pregnancy follows a “lucky road” – travel it. These matters are also blessed Wednesday/Thursday, but more on the home, “staying put” side. Romance, pleasure call Friday onward – wait until Friday eve, Saturday.
July 11 - 17 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Relationships remain important. A new one might begin Sunday. This is a great,harmonious week,perfect for mending fences and deepening happy links.A sweet nectar of understanding helps you see others’ positions. Monday/Tuesday bring depths, intimacy, ﬁnancial commitments, investments, secrets. Bonds deepen (or break – unlikely). Gentle love ﬂows Wednesday/Thursday. Success indicated in cultural, intellectual, international, legal zones. Be ambitious Friday/Saturday, but take some care Friday to about 2 p.m., when opposition or surprises could occur. All week, seal a deal! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Chores, chores, chores – get ’em done during this easy, productive week. It’s a splendid time to check your health, start exercise or health regimens, look for a new doctor, repair anything from stairs to computers, handle employment/ employee matters, hire service personnel, and/or buy tools and equipment, from a blender to a backhoe. Be a little wary in romance, career and health the ﬁrst 14 hours of Friday. Otherwise, charge forth! Relationships are an opportunity Monday/Tuesday. Secrets, research, large money Wednesday/Thursday. Romantic notions, pleasure Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Chase romance, creative accomplishment, pleasure, beauty, sports and speculation. Your luck runs high during this smooth, easy week. Woo someone, especially Sunday and Wednesday/Thursday. Responses will be affectionate, gentle (even if you’re rejected). Wednesday/Thursday also feature opportunities, new horizons, the possibility of relocation, negotiation, agreements.Take care Friday to 2 p.m. – a ﬁnancial, and/or an intimate opportunity appears, but it does not “ﬁt” your future. After this, through Saturday, move a relationship deeper, research, or clinch a ﬁnancial action. firstname.lastname@example.org • Reading: 416-686-5014
