HST petition is legal
Judge says petition should be sent to the B.C. legislature BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
It took less than a week for the next stage of the HST fight to play out in B.C. Supreme Court. Chief Justice Robert Bauman ruled on Friday morning that the anti-HST petition and its accompanying law extinguishing the act are legal. Bauman dismissed the big business challenge of the petition in a 13-page ruling that celebrated the grassroots democracy at the heart of the tax revolt. Quoting Premier Gordon Campbell saying the petition was “a victory for democracy,” Bauman said the petition should be sent to the provincial legislature. He said the petition’s supporters so far had been denied the fruits of their “victory for democracy.” Bauman dismissed all of the arguments raised by the coalition of industry and business groups that included the Council of Forest Industries, the Mining Association of B.C., the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association, the Western Convenience Stores Association, the Coast Forest Products Association and the B.C. Chamber of Commerce. The groups had argued that a provincial law could not overturn the HST because the tax was enacted federally. ◗HST Page 8

The New Westminster Youth Centre will soon start filling up with furnishings, equipment and people. Construction of the new youth centre at the rear of Century House got underway in October 2009. The city is expected to gain occupancy of the building next week. “The youth services staff will start moving in,” said Joanne Edey-Nicoll, the city’s assistant director of parks, culture and recreation. “They will set up the offices. All of our furniture will be arriving for the youth.” Equipment such as foosball machines and ping-pong tables will then be moved into the new youth centre that’s located in Moody Park. The building will include a kitchen, lounge, fitness centre and office space.

Retro chic: Two former Miss PNE winners, from past Pacific National Exhibitions. Some of the previous winners, including two former New Westminster residents, were scheduled to ride in horse-drawn carriages as part of the PNE’s 100th anniversary parade through the streets of Vancouver last night (Friday).
Locals connected to PNE history Two New Westminster women recall the years they were Miss PNE BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
It may have been more than four decades since Judy Walker and Patsy Hartigan were crowned Miss PNE, but the former Miss New Westminster winners say the memories of that special honour haven’t faded with time. “It was magical,” said Walker, who still lives in New Westminster and is well-known in the community as a former administrative assistant with the school district. “There are so many things in life that you really remember, and this is one of them. … I’ve got the PNE, and it’s an absolute thrill that I never really expected.” Walker won the title in 1966, and three years later, her neighbour, then known as Patsy McPhee, followed in her foot-
steps. “I was only 17 at the time, and it was all such a blur,” said Patsy, who now goes by her married name of Hartigan. Hartigan said a friend, MaryEllen Kinsey, told her about entering Miss Sapperton, and Hartigan was triumphant over two other girls. That meant she was on to the Miss New Westminster pageant, where she beat nine other competitors. “So there I am, in the Miss PNE pageant, and there’s 36 competitors,” said Hartigan. “My mom (Muriel) was getting a huge kick out of this because I was the only daughter and she was having a blast buying me new clothes.” Even when Hartigan won the title, she remembers feeling a bit down. “Before they announced the winner, they told us that everybody but the winner would get to go to Playland afterwards,” she said. “I remember thinking, I really want to go to Playland.” Instead of riding the roller-

New Westminster’s Premier
Planning is underway for the Kraft Celebration tour that will be rolling into the Royal City on Aug. 29. Ten winning communities are receiving a $25,000 grant from Kraft Canada to be used for improvements to a local facility that supports active and healthy living. They’ll also receive a community barbecue and a live broadcast from TSN’s SportsCentre. New Westminster’s event will take place on Sunday, Aug. 29 from 1 to 4 p.m. in Tipperary Park and city hall’s Fourth Street parking lot. The community event will run from 1 to 4 p.m., while the TSN SportsCentre broadcast will take place from 3 to 4 p.m. “It’s going to be a great event,” said Joanne Edey-Nicoll, the city’s assistant director of parks, culture and recreation. “It’s going to be big.” Planners are estimating up to 5,000 people may attend the event, which will include a live broadcast by TSN featuring anchors Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole. Entertainment stage will feature local performers, including the Knots. “We will be having a sports zone and autograph area. We are contacting all the different sports groups,” Edey-Nicoll said. “We have a family zone that will include all kinds of games and activities.” Kids can take part in a tug of war, with the rope resembling a giant cheese string, and a dunk tank will also be part of the day’s festivities. “There will be lots of free stuff, a free
barbecue, lots of activities for kids,” said Ashleigh Young, the city’s communications coordinator. “It is all free.” Organizers are lining up some sports celebrities to attend the event and sign autographs. “Cliff Ronning is confirmed,” Young said. “The B.C. Lions and Whitecaps have said they will be participating. We are working on the Canucks.” Vance McFadyen, who nominated New Westminster for the contest, was thrilled to learn the city had beat out Nelson in online voting between the two B.C. communities. “It is terrific. I think I am still in shock,” he said. “We are the first large community to beat out a small community. Usually the small community gets out the most votes. That in itself is an accomplishment.” In addition to nominating the city for the Kraft Celebration Tour, McFadyen spent a lot of time voting for the city online. “My plan was 15 hours – I made 12-anda-half,” he said. “There are a lot of people who spent a considerable amount of time voting. It was really a community effort.” Farhan Lalji, coach of the New Westminster Hyacks football team and a TSN reporter, will be the event’s MC. “There is live entertainment for two hours,” said McFadyen, a member of the event’s planning committee. “There is a big stage coming in.” The sponsors provide the local organizing committee with funding to purchase water, items for the barbecue and pay for off-duty police to provide security. “They give you a whole plan,” McFadyen said. “It has to be approved. It is a lot of work, but the benefit is good. Everybody is excited we won.” People are encouraged to wear sportsrelated attire to the event, as they may be in the background during TSN’s broadcast.

But Elizabeth Denham, the commissioner, said, “Health authority outsourcing contracts must be disclosed.” Will the Liberals try one more time to keep that information under wraps? Perhaps. But we hope not. Companies such as Sodexo Canada are not working for the Liberal government – or the hospitals. They are, in fact,
working on the public’s dime – taxpayer money. The public deserves to know how its money is being spent, but also whether they are getting good value and service for their tax dollars. And, perhaps equally important, the public needs to know what standards of service have been agreed to in those contracts and how the government is evaluating performance. We applaud Denham for her ruling. Now, let’s see what we’ve been paying for and if we’ve gotten value for our tax dollars.

More thoughts on religion
Re: Who’s intolerant here?, Letters to the editor, The Record, Aug. 18. In his letter defending religious faith, Derrick Dong includes several supporting quotations, but I have a couple more that I think are worthy of consideration: “To believe something in the face of evidence and against reason – to believe something by faith – is ignoble, irresponsible and ignorant, and merits the opposite of respect.” – A.C. Grayling (author and philosopher) “With or without (religion) you’ll have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things, but to make good people do evil things, that takes religion!” – Steven Weinberg (Nobel laureate)
A marriage of convenience
Carole James and Bill Vander Zalm came together seemingly determined to bring down the HST while helping each other with their political ambitions. They are politicians – it’s a marriage of convenience, and they have an agenda to work through. Carole’s determination to close ranks on behalf of the power-seeking NDP, despite a long list of differences between the New Democrats and the B.C. Conservatives, reflects the commitment of how to manage a relationship when you aren’t exactly together … officially. Yet, it would be a mistake to minimize their achievements: The unity is functioning after a fashionable honeymoon, and the differences have been shelved in favour of “sticking it to Gordo.” All in all, an ambitious yet pragmatic relationship was generally well-received.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Strange bedfellows in B.C. ◗ continued from page 6
Although Carole and Bill claim their relationship is a qualified success, at least one of them (maybe both) is racing towards an election, buoyed by favourable opinionpoll ratings and worried about remembering an anniversary. Carole and Bill are a model of what two people are willing to do to achieve a personal goal, even though that personal goal is the same. I know I could lose my status as a cardcarrying NDPer for saying this, but I see my observations as a warning of sorts. To somebody who doesn’t follow the ins and outs of B.C. politics, and who may not know who Carole James is or may be too young to remember Bill Vander Zalm, we may conclude that whatever is going on right now, for Carole and Bill, it’s a familiar pattern that we tend to see from both of them. Bill can’t help be in the spotlight because, well, that is who he is. If he hadn’t become a politician, he would likely be a lounge singer. He loves the limelight, the spotlights, stages. All eyes on him. He is rarely at a loss for words. Carole isn’t as comfortable in the lime-
light. During the Fight the HST petition signature gathering, Carole was out of sight. Unlike Bill, Carole struggles for words, usually falling to her default setting, “not my fault.” What these two seem to have in common is their talent in perpetuating the delusion that only they speak for the people. Carole and Bill’s relationship will end in divorce – a quick, no-fault divorce.
There’s one path to heaven Dear Editor:
Re: Look for guidance in God’s word, Letters to the editor, The Record, Aug. 11. Well said, Elizabeth Slinn. For many years, I was a believer in “my way only.” One day I heard about the KISS principle: Keep It Simple Stupid (Sweetie). I walked several paths on my journey. I found there is only one path to heaven, “God’s way.” Any other path goes against God. There is only one heavenly Father, one heaven, one path. Check out section 1010 of The Record’s classifieds section, first and third Saturdays. Bob Wright, New Westminster
of the Dupont Block with Sarraf and suggested he may want to also buy the Paramount Theatre. “When you look at the back, it is exactly the same,” he said. “It looks like it is one building. I say to myself oh, oh I better buy this too.” An article about the Sarraf’s purchase of the two buildings appeared in the Aug. 18 issue of The Record. While the headline poses the question about whether the lap dancing business will be leaving the site, the owner’s com-
ments clearly indicate he intends to support the business that has six years remaining on its lease. The Dupont Block, which dates from 1898 to 1913, is considered a “significant” heritage building in New Westminster, according to a statement of significance done by a heritage expert on behalf of the city.

papal decrees to the shape of carts are given as reasons. But when automobiles came along, it became essential to codify it. Nations exporting cars tended to force it on their dependencies: England made sure India drove on the left, while Germany forced right-side driving on its Eastern European conquests in the late 1930s.

THE BEST FROM OUR BLOGS The following is an excerpt from a post this week in one of our blogs, Only in New West, available on our website. David Sarraf is the proud owner of two buildings that have tremendous heritage significance in the Royal City. Sarraf, who owns 23 properties and five retail stores, recently purchased the Dupont Block at 642 Columbia St. and the Paramount Theatre at 652 Columbia St. The former owner of both buildings was discussing the sale

Whether the reasons are economic, practical, political, or cultural quirks, once a technology or system is locked in, the costs of changing are usually too high to consider. Understanding lock-in gives us another way to view the world. It may not make it any less frustrating for me to find the X key when I’m typing, but at least I know why it’s there. From nuclear power to
the red-yellow-green traffic lights, from reading leftto-right to looking at maps with north at the top, a lot of our lives are governed by rules that were locked in generations ago. They may not matter any more, but we still live with the consequences every day. Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance, a sister paper of The Record.

HST: ‘This is really a victory for the people of B.C.,’ says New Westminster MLA ◗ continued from page 1
“I would not give effect to any of the petitioners’ submissions, and I dismiss this application,” the chief justice said in his ruling. He said “the initiative petition complies with the spirit and letter of the requirements under the (Recall and Initiative Act) on a proper legal construction of those
requirements” and that B.C.’s chief electoral officer, Craig James, was correct in his decision approving it under the legislation. He added: “I would respectfully ask that the chief electoral officer perform his remaining duties under the Recall and Initiative Act forthwith.” Local reaction to the decision
was swift. “This is really a victory for the people of B.C.,” said New Westminster MLA Dawn Black. “What’s happened is that the judge has ruled against the B.C. Liberal surrogates who had tried to stop a democratic process from going forward.” Black said James has no choice
on the next step for the 700,000-signature petition, which he certified last week but wouldn’t forward to a legislative standing committee pending the outcome of this week’s court case. “Craig James has to send it to the standing committee so that the clock can start ticking,” said Black.
Once the committee formally receives the petition, it will have 30 days to meet and 90 days thereafter to make a recommendation. It can recommend that the issue go to the legislature for debate or go to a non-binding referendum. “Let’s get on with it,” said Black. “700,000 people have spoken clearly.”
PNE: Friendship forged through reunion ◗ continued from page 3
As Walker built her acting and show business career, she found perhaps her greatest gift. “I got a call from NBC to work on a travelling Walt Disney show in South America,” said Walker. “And it’s there where I met my husband, Doug.” Doug Walker, wellknown in Royal City circles as a former school trustee, was also working on the show as a high rigger, and he spotted Judy practising her routines. “Yes, I met Doug in South America, and now we’re back in New Westminster,” said Walker. Walker also has fond memories of meeting Hartigan. The first meeting between the two was arranged by their parents. “Her parents invited me over, and I remember this young girl, so cute, just star-
ing at me like I was a beauty queen,” said Walker. “I was so happy when three years later, she won the title herself.” “Yes, I was in awe of her,” said Hartigan. “ She was a ballerina, too, and she was so beautiful.” Walker shrugs off the compliments, saying they’re lucky to both be former Miss PNE winners. “That’s something we still share today because we’ve become very good friends,” said Walker. So good, in fact, that Hartigan comes to Vancouver each summer from her home in Taiwan. “We go to the PNE together,” said Walker. “We each have our gold passes, and they really treat us like VIPs.” “We became really good friends in the 1980s, when we were roommates for a Miss PNE reunion,” said
Hartigan. “We were both young mothers at the time, and it was great to leave the husbands and children at home and have some fun.” Walker wishes the Miss PNE pageant was resurrected – the last Miss PNE was in 1991, although a youth ambassador pageant lasted for another three years – but that doesn’t dull her memories of the past. “It really was a title that you could be proud of,” she said. “To be Miss PNE meant you were Miss B.C.” As for what Walker looks forward to each year at the fair, she can’t pick out only one favourite thing. “I love the logging show and I love the Superdogs,” she said. “I also love to get the smell of the onions. … I’m really glad the PNE is still at the same site, and it really is one of the best things you can do in the summer.”

Police raid Moody Park home 22-year-old man faces drug-related charges A 22-year-old Royal City man is facing a number of drug-related charges after New Westminster police raided a Moody Park area residence last week.
On Aug. 12, the New Westminster Police Service street crime unit executed a search warrant on a home across from Moody Park. The investigation began as a result of numerous citizen complaints regarding drug trafficking inside of Moody Park, according to a police press release.
Members of the street crime unit conducted a one-month investigation into the comings and goings at the residence. During last Thursday’s search, police discovered a small amount of drugs and arrested the 22-year-old without incident. firstname.lastname@example.org

Success: Elise Niessen swam 170 laps over four hours at the Canada Games Pool to raise funds for B.C. Children’s Hospital.
Marathon swim raises $4,500 for hospital BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER
A Burnaby woman’s fundraiser for B.C. Children’s Hospital went swimmingly. Elise Niessen managed to almost double her fundraising goal when she swam 170 laps over the course of four hours at Canada Games Pool. Niessen had hoped to raise $2,500 through her pool odyssey for the neonatal intensive care unit at Children’s, but she ended “The best part up bringing in $4,551. “The best part was all the was all the wonderful people that stopped wonderful by and cheered me on,” Niessen wrote in an e-mail to The Record. people that Niessen said that coverage in stopped by and The Record helped get the word out about her cause. Some of cheered me on.” those who came by to root for her during her epic swim had read ELISE NIESSEN about her story in the paper, she swimmer said. The 27-year-old was inspired to do the swim after meeting her cousin’s baby, who was born with holes in her heart. The family had to wait till the baby weighed enough so surgery could be performed, and now, at six months, she’s OK. “Now she’s a healthy baby. It’s incredible,” Niessen said last month. “This unit keeps babies alive by tubes.” The UBC student had never done four straight hours of laps, but she is no stranger to the pool. She’s a lifeguard and teaches water aerobics in Burnaby.

ongtime New Westminster residents Helen and Fred Sparkes celebrated a marital milestone with their family and friends. Their children, Julie Duncan, Jane Stead and Warne Sparkes, organized a celebration on July 17 in honour of the couple’s golden anniversary. Although their anniversary is actually Aug. 13, the date was chosen to accommodate out-of-town guests. “It was beautiful, it was fun,” Helen said. “We had a portion of our family there, some longtime friends, some newer friends.” Guests came from Chetwynd, Denman Island on Vancouver Island, Santa Barbara and Oakland California. “Jane put together a really nice video of our 50 years,” Fred said. “It was really well done.” A few tears flowed during the video of the couple’s 50 year-marriage. Some of their friends in the video, including members of their wedding party, have passed away. Fred was raised in Surrey, and Helen was raised in the Surrey community of Port Mann. In November 1959, they met at the former Hollywood Bowl on Carnarvon Street, a dance hall for youth. In January 1960 they were engaged and in August 1960 they married. The gathering of 85 to 100 family and friends was held at the Royal City Curling Club, where Fred is a member and curls all winter. “They treated us well,” Fred said. “It is a very nice facility.” Fred, a longtime teacher and principal for the New Westminster School District prior to his retirement, continues to work each
Hornets’ long marriages.
February and March on an appeal panel for the B.C. Assessment Authority. Helen, who was New Westminster’s mayor for six years and a city councillor for eight years, continues to serve as a director with the Vancouver Port Authority. The couple has been doing quite a bit of travelling, including vacations to Palm Desert and Europe, on river cruises. They’ll be heading to Halifax in September and Tahiti in January 2011. “Marry a good woman,” said Fred, when asked about the secret to a long marriage. Helen said perseverance is critical to the longevity of a marriage. “Family has been so important. Both our sets of parents had their 50ths,” she said. “Family is number 1 – making sure our kids have good role models.” In addition to three children, the couple is proud grandparents of six grandchildren. “Work hard at it. It’s not easy,” Fred said. “I think that is the problem – people don’t work at the marriage.” Helen, who got married when she was 19, believes couples have different challenges today than they faced 50 years ago. “Life is more complicated these days,” she said. “Everybody works. It was simpler in the first 20 years. It’s hard work.” Attendees at the anniversary bash included members of the Hume Park Hornets, a group of friends who have known each other since they were kids. The Hornets – including Fred Sparkes, Ron Loftus, Jerry London, Frank McGaffney, Roy Lager, Brad Folka and Al London – played sports together in Sapperton. The Sparkes note that they were among the first of the Hornets to wed, so several 50th anniversary celebrations will be coming up in the years ahead. “It’s the water in Sapperton,” Fred joked about the secret to the

Coun. Jonathan Cote will be taking fellow city councillor Jaimie McEvoy out for dinner. New Westminster recently beat out Nelson in online voting to win a visit from the Kraft Celebration Tour and a $25,000 donation to the city’s new youth centre. Jonathan will be taking Jaimie and his partner, Stacy, out for dinner at a local restaurant of their choice. “We had a wager to see who could stay up the latest voting for the new youth centre,” Jonathan said in an e-mail. “I thought for sure with my kids, and all the late nights I have (had) over the last couple of years, it would be a cakewalk.” The father of two young daughters decided to rest his eyes for a moment at 4:30 a.m. but never made it back to the computer. Jaimie continued voting until 6:30 a.m. Last month, the two B.C. communities faced off in a 24-hour online voting contest that ran from 9 a.m. to 8:59 a.m. the following day. The Kraft Celebration Tour, which includes a TSN SportsCentre broadcast, will visit New Westminster on Aug. 29. The two councillors weren’t the only ones who stayed up through the night to vote. A number of local youths gathered at the library to vote through the night. Got an item for Around Town? Send ideas to Theresa McManus, tmcmanus@royal cityrecord.com.

MANNY FERNANDES DRAWS INSPIRATION FROM ‘THE SKY’
Whimsy and wonder in his garden But garden also has a very practical, edible side to it ﬁlled with fruit and vegetables BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
Manny Fernandes has dedicated a lot of time to creating a garden that’s pretty, practical and a whole lot of fun. The garden starts at the curb of his cul-de-sac, which is home to some of the topiaries that call Fernandes’s yard home. “I make a steel frame, a wire frame,” he explains. “I let the plant grow inside and train it.” Bears, dinosaurs, a seal balancing a pail, dolphins, eagles, a crocodile, a squirrel and herons are found in the garden – in the form of topiaries. “From the sky,” Fernandes says, when asked where the ideas come from.

The garden features an assortment of pawpaw, pomegranate, jujube, olive, quince, persimmon and kiwi trees and raspberry and blueberry bushes. A solarium between the house and the yard includes a guava tree, a fruit normally found in more tropical climates. “There are hundreds,” he said of the fruits growing this year. “These are the yellow guavas.” A lemon tree and a banana tree have also flourished in Fernandes’s solarium. “Last year, we had bananas. I thought we were going to put Safeway out of business,” he says. “I had so many bananas I gave them to my neighbours.” Elsewhere in the yard, Fernandes uses a gardening technique called espalier to grow apples and pears horizontally along a fence. One of those apple trees was “loaded” with fruit last year. The yard is also home to pear trees. “This has been grafted into a pear,” he says of a quince tree growing in his yard. “We have two different kinds of fruit in there – a quince and a pear. A lot of the good pears are grafted into quince rootstock. The roots are more vigorous.” Fernandes tries to learn as much as he
can about fruit trees and see how far he can push the envelope. Fernandes’s garden features plants that grow in climates from the desert to the tropics. “A lot of people call this a micro climate,” he says. “I can grow anything you think of.” While perennials and produce have a home in Fernandes’s garden, annuals are scarce. Zinnias and marigolds add a dash of colour. “Annuals are just a waste of money, that is the way I see it,” he says. “Gardening with perennials is a challenge.

lose some.” While Fernandes is fond of fruit trees because of the food they produce, he chooses perennials for their colour. “I like bright colours – red, yellow, blue – anything bright. Always,” he says. “If it doesn’t have colour, then I don’t like it.” At the rear of the yard, Fernandes has planted a vegetable garden with tomatoes, corn, kale, beets, carrots, beans and other produce. A beekeeper for about 30 years, Fernandes attributes the bees to his garden’s success.
“That is what my neighbours call Manny’s working girls,” he says, pointing to the beehives in his yard. The garden has been featured in magazines and on tours such as the one offered by the New Westminster Horticultural Society. “It just all grew one step at a time,” he says of his urban oasis. “Sometimes I am not happy with what I have so I move it. It was never a master plan.” Fernandes spends as much time in his garden as he can. “Every minute that I

“Fruit trees are my favourite,” he says. “I treat them good – they treat me good back. They give me something to eat.”

ummer is winding down, which has special meaning for parents of school-aged children. After you have stocked up on supplies and gone for that back-to-school haircut, stop by the library, where there is a variety of material to assist as you move through the school year. In addition to general child development information in the parenting section, there are helpful resources in the education classification. Adele Faber has followed up her classic How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk with How To Talk So Kids Can Learn At Home and In School. Chapter headings here include Seven Skills That Invite Kids to Cooperate and Solving Problems Together. The very first day can be an anxious one for both children and parents. Have a look at books like Kindergarten Success: Helping Children Excel Right from the Start, by Jill Frankel Hauser, or the DVD Preparing for Kindergarten: A Parent’s Guide before school starts. There are stories that will ease the way too, like Rosemary Wells’ wonderful Yoko Writes Her Name. Even the ditzy Amelia Bedelia can have the first-day jitters, as described in Amelia Bedelia’s First Day of School. Older children sometimes need a little help too when the going gets rough. Greg Anderson has written I Don’t Want to Go To School Today; A Guide for Parents, covering the tricky issues of bullying and peer pressure and dealing with unfamiliar situations such as being in a split class or language immersion. Parent-teacher communication is the key to solving many of these problems. Textbooks and workbooks on the Learning Resources shelves in the children’s department can give parents some ideas about what is covered at different elementary grade levels. Many parenting websites offer information on dealing with schooling issues. Check out the links on the Library’s Kids Page under Resources: Parenting Information or go to sites such as www.familyeducation. com/home/ for their Back-to-School page, and www. internet4classrooms.com/parents.htm. And have a great school year!

Calendonia’s ordeal a colourful piece of history The Caledonia was a sidewheeler built on Vancouver Island in 1858, and in 1862 she was one of the ships that served to connect the Island to the mainland with cargo and passengers. The vessel was about 100 feet in length. The route often followed from Victoria to the mouth of the Fraser was to leave port, sail up the peninsula to the Gulf Islands, travel through these islands, pass between Mayne and
ARCHIE & DALE MILLER
oday, we bring you another steamboat story from our maritime files, this time an 1862 trip from Victoria to New Westminster.
Galiano islands through Plumper Pass, cross the Gulf of Georgia and head into the river via either the main entrance near today’s Steveston or Canoe Pass near Ladner. The ship left Victoria on a Friday morning, Captain Frain in command, “with a small freight, a number of animals and 25 passengers.” Everything was going very well until she was a few kilometres out from the pass when “she
came in contact with a snag, carrying away a part of her larboard (left or port side) paddlewheel and completely disabling it.” As the winds and sea were running high, the Caledonia “put about and ran back to the pass.” The next morning, after the captain had made some temporary repairs, she headed out once again, but about halfway across the Gulf the temporary works gave way to the
seas, part of the rudder disappeared and the ship became unmanageable, “rolling and tossing fearfully in the trough of the sea.” The article describing this adventure said, “during this time the passengers were considerably alarmed and very much excited.” The captain rigged up a way to control his ship and finally brought her safely into Canoe Pass where they anchored and made it to their river destination
before noon the next day. Remember that there was no communication from the ship in 1862, so people awaiting the Caledonia only knew that she was very late and they would have been very worried. The article ended by acknowledging those worries but added “the passengers speak in high terms of the cool seamanship displayed by Captain Frain throughout the trying ordeal.”

Comeback ’Bellies take Game 1 New West scores four unanswered goals in third
BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
The New Westminster Salmonbellies are starting the Western Lacrosse Association playoff final like they did the regular season. New Westminster made a habit of coming from behind to win games after less than stellar start to begin this season. On Wednesday, the Salmonbellies were up to their old tricks, scoring four unanswered goals in the final 20 minutes to upset the Victoria Shamrocks 1210 in Game 1 of the bestof-seven playoff final. “We got a little smarter, pushing the ball better, so was the D. … It’s just lucky we pulled it out in the third period,” said Curtis Manning, who scored the game-winning goal when he was allowed to walk in on the Victoria keeper following a solo rush up the floor midway through the third period. “We’ve been doing that all season. We haven’t played a full 60 minutes. When we do, we’ll be a pretty solid team, but we haven’t done it yet.” The ’Bellies got out of the gate late in the opening period before an estimated crowd of more than 1,500 spectators at Queen’s Park Arena. Victoria took a 6-4 firstperiod lead on a four-goal splurge from Shamrock Jeff Shattler. New Westminster then played catchup through the entire second period, coming back from a threegoal deficit on four separate occasions. Jordan Hall scored his
Burrards break postseason jinx BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR email@example.com
“And we play in the real stadiums, but we don’t play a full field,” Devon said. Devon and Luciano have been pals since preschool. They both attended Lochdale Elementary until Devon transferred to Capitol Hill to take French immersion. Just recently, they found themselves on the same Whitecaps youth travelling team. They will also both suit up with the Burnaby Selects under-14 Metro team this fall.
The Burnaby Burrards broke a two-year post-season jinx with a 13-7 victory over Iroquois champion Cornwall Island Redmen on Day 2 of the Presidents Cup senior lacrosse championships Tuesday. The West Coast senior B regular season champs erupted for seven secondperiod goals before coasting home to the club’s first win in the post season in two seasons. Up to Tuesday’s matchup, the Burrards had gone eight consecutive games in league playoffs and at the Presidents Cup without a victory. “It was good to get a win and get that monkey off our back after two seasons. … You could feel it in the dressing room. It was uplifting,” said player of the game Quinn Waddington of New Westminster. “Luckily, we grabbed (the game) by the horns and finished them off.” The two teams entered the final game of the day without a win in the senior B national championships. Chris Fox opened the game with a goal for the host Burrards in the first minute of play. But the two teams traded goals throughout the period and finished knotted at 3-3 following unassisted goals by Kyle McCartney and Mike King, who both potted a pair in the win. Mitch Dibblee led off the second-period surge with a transition goal with the two playing three-onthree. McCartney and Waddington then potted back-to-back power play goals that doubled the score 6-3 for the hosts. “It’s tough to stay disciplined when the game is so emotional and a rough game like that. But I think we were the more disciplined team,” said Waddington, who potted a pair of extra-man goals in the period while also setting up McCartney for his second of the game. The Redmen tallied two goals in the final minute of

Head ﬁrst: Jordan Hall scored his ﬁrst of four goals in the Western Lacrosse Association playoff ﬁnal on this play in a 12-10 victory over the Victoria Shamrocks in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series Wednesday. third and fourth goals of the game to shave the deficit in the second period. Craig Conn and former St. Catharines teammate Ian Hawksbee, on a twoon-one break late in the period, also countered for the home team. Team Captain Nenad Gajic got the rally started early in the final period, sneaking a ball past Victoria keeper Matt Flindell on a shot from the right side. Two minutes later, Cliff Smith tied the score at 10s’ finishing off a looping transition pass from
Manning. Manning then was able to walk in on Flindell and fired a ball into the net for the winner. Jordan McBride tallied a minute later with a shot off a right screen to add to the ’Bellies lead. Tyler Richards, who had a rough start in goal for New Westminster, was unbeatable in the third, blanking the ’Rocks in the final frame. Hall and Shattler led all scorers with six-point nights. New Westminster outshot Victoria 54-42 in the
contest, 41 of the shots coming in the latter two periods. “We won the game, but we can’t win like that,” Manning said. “It shows we’ve got character and mental toughness, but it’s tough to do. “We’re a good clutch team, but we shouldn’t have to rely on the third period. It’s a scary way to play.” Although a concern to players and coaching staff alike, the win could have the effect of planting a seed of doubt in the minds of those in the Shamrock
dressing room. But in a long homeand-home series, that seed can be quickly dispelled, added Manning. “You got to play three (games) in Victoria, and it’s the hardest rink to win in the league,” he said. Game 2 was played Friday in Victoria (after Record deadlines). Game 3 is back at Queen’s Park Arena on Sunday. Game 4 will be played in the Shamrocks barn on the following Tuesday. Game time for all three matches is 7:45 p. m.
Soccer pals on World Cup safari in South Africa BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
The World Cup is really just beginning for two North Burnaby soccer players. Goalkeeper Luciano Trasolini and striker Devon Jones are both soon to be heading off to South Africa, the scene of the recent FIFA World Cup won by Spain, as the Canadian representatives at the Danone Nations Cup World Final in Johannesburg from Sept. 30 to Oct. 3. The pair earned the experience as members of the under-12
Canada West team that defeated an Eastern Canada select side 2-1 in a shootout at Lamport Stadium in Toronto earlier this month. The West came back from a 1-0 deficit to tie the score through a goal by Easton Ongaro of Edmonton off a corner kick by David Norman of Coquitlam late in the game. In the shootout, Luciano made two key stops, while the West Coast side scored on both of their penalty shot opportunities to win the Canadian final for the first time ever. “We were really excited. We
scored and the other team was crying. We were shouting, ‘South Africa, South Africa’ and then doing our song, ‘Ole, ole, ole, ole,’” said Luciano. The two friends will leave on Sept. 26 for Montreal, where the team will spend four days training before taking off for Africa. The trip has all the buildup and glamour to make any 12year-old’s imagination run wild – buses to the stadium, security and all those fans. It is a small wonder that the two could easily make believe they were professional soccer players.

Just like the pros: Goalkeeper Luciano Trasolini and Burnaby buddy Devon Jones helped Team West advance to the upcoming Danone Nations Cup soccer world ﬁnal in South Africa.
Although close, the two boys took different paths towards embracing the beautiful game. “Luciano was really good at soccer, but I wasn’t,” said Devon. But Luciano dropped out of the game, only to return to it by the fourth grade. He decided then to become a goalkeeper because he said, he was not that fast a runner. Now he’s hooked. “When I watch goalies and see how good they are, it inspired me to be good like them,” Luciano said. “My cousin could have been a professional, and he turned it down. I don’t want to be like him. He chose a girl.” Devon had to work at his game. “I was into other sports, but when I saw people do things, I would ask them how to do it. I started going to camps and learned better ball control and stuff,” Devon added. The boys were handpicked from among 7,500 young soccer players who took part in 10 soccer camps and four provincial
Danone Nations Cup selection camps across the country. Now it’s upwards and onwards for the two aspiring national teamers. Qualifying teams from approximately 40 other countries, including defending two-time 2008 champion France, and five new nations Haiti, Mozambique, U.S.A., Libya and New Zealand, will descend on South Africa next month for the 11th annual Danone Nations Cup. Last year’s Danone Nations Cup was postponed because of the H1N1 flu pandemic. The official draw will take place on Sept. 30, with two days of qualifying matches to follow. The world final will be played on Oct. 3 in the 40,000 seat Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa. Along with France, South Africa, Russia, Spain, Argentina and Réunion Island in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Africa, are all previous winners of the Danone Nations Cup. Canada has never won the final.

over the West Coast league playoff winners, Tri-City Bandits on Wednesday. Rob Cook made 40 saves in the Burrards net. Cory Melville, Marcus Wooden and McCartney, with a pair of goals, all had four-point outings for Burnaby in the win over Tri-City. The Burrards opened the
championships with a pair of losses to CanAm champion Onondaga Redhawks and Quebec representative Kahnawake Mohawks. The bronze medal game will be played Saturday at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre, beginning at 3 p.m. The Presidents Cup gold-medal final follows at 7 p.m.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. Sunday begins four weeks of travel, communications, errands, curiosity, casual acquaintances, siblings, paperwork, news, and “daily business.” A busy, not important time. It’s busy partly because these activities (travel, communications, etc.) meet delays, misses, mistakes, forgetfulness. Keep a running “to do” list, take a list when shopping, etc. Your home, kids, a security or realty project remain front-and-centre. Finances, intimacy, lifestyle decisions favoured Sunday/Monday. Gentle love, wisdom mid-week. Ambition, Friday/Saturday.
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Rest, lie low, contemplate, be charitable and spiritual now to late September. Don’t start new projects before Sept. 12. Anticipate delays, mistakes in administrative duties and government, institutional links. A tax or other neglected matter might return to demand completion. But in general, life will ﬂow smoothly, your romantic progress (if you’re in one) pleases, life is sweet and nostalgic! (If you’re single, unattached, late January to early summer 2011 will bring a lucky partnership opening.) Romance, creative urges Sunday/Monday; exciting meetings Friday/Saturday. Work, mid-week.
Taurus April 20-May 20: Reject new starts, projects and relationships before Sept. 12. Loads of work streams your way, but there’s satisfaction, even affection in this. Also, a month of romance, pleasure, charming kids, speculation and beauty starts now! You’ll have lots of relief from all those duties. (But keep your eye on the ball, for late September will bring another basket of chores.) Your status/career meet luck Sunday (best) and Monday. Social joys, optimism, happiness and entertainment arrive Tuesday to Thursday. Your “destined love” is “around.” An old ﬂame? Lie low, rest late week.
Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Projects, relationships and ventures begun before Sept. 12 will almost certainly meet overwhelming mistakes, indecision and delays. So stick with the ongoing, or past situations, especially in earnings and spending – an area that will generally be fortunate for the four weeks ahead. (An “unseen destiny” aids you in money areas midweek.) Double-check amounts on cheques, change at the store, watch your wallet, etc. Relationships demand (and reward) your attention Sunday (best) and Monday. Secrets, intimacy, lust, investments, debt, mid-week. Gentle love, wisdom Friday/ Saturday.
Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start no important new projects, ventures, relationships before Sept. 12. That might be difficult, as your mind naturally travels to the future for the next four weeks – you’re optimistic! Well, enjoy the state. Your popularity grows, social joys enter, entertainment, flirtations abound. A former lover or sweet friend might return. It’s fun and full of bounce, so don’t say no. But on a deeper level, the love here will raise issues of “deep duty,” perhaps of burden, or ”sweet sorrow.” You decide what’s worth what. Duties, sweet or not, appear Sunday/Monday, Friday/Saturday.
Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy and charisma soar this week through the next few, Virgo. But don’t start big new (or even small important) projects, nor relationships, before Sept. 12. So that leaves you in a bind: you’re in the best start time of the year energywise, and one of the worst circumstantially. Solution: seize something incomplete or abandoned from the past, and revive it. Best (past) place to look: earnings, money, possessions, rote learning, memory, a sensual contact, ﬁnancial investment/debt, sexual bond, lifestyle change. Work’s lucky Sunday, relationships and travel lucky Tuesday/Wednesday.

Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of work and health issues begins Sunday. Yet your main experience will be pleasure this week. Sunday/ Monday feature social delights, happiness (attraction) in love, optimism, entertainment and wish fulﬁlment! Thursday night through Saturday boost your energy and charisma. (Saturday might bring a further development to Sunday/Monday’s attraction.) This week subtly furthers your (fortunate) destiny in work, career, and ultimately, ﬁnances. Even your “down time,” Tuesday to Thursday eve, ﬂows smoothly: rest, think. Remember, start nothing major before Sept. 12.
Gemini May 21-June 20: Delay all new starts – especially in domestic, realty, Mother Nature and security spheres – until Sept. 12. You’ll be tempted to “jump early” in those domestic, realty (etc.) areas, as they grow large for the next four weeks. Let events evolve: destiny is on your side, especially ﬁnancially. Romance (or the lack thereof) remains a strong secondary note. Love’s opportunities exist right into mid-September. However, better now if it’s an old ﬂame – perhaps from a former neighbourhood. Love and/or friendship are favoured Sunday/Monday and Thursday night to Saturday. Mid-week, be ambitious.

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: A former job, career contact, parenting role, or status position might return now to Sept. 12. (“Destiny” aids here mid-week.) But don’t start brand new projects or relationships, especially in these areas. Instead, seize that past opportunity, or stick with ongoing ventures, while protecting them from delays, mistakes and misunderstood communications. Your social life remains happy, upbeat. A light, ﬂirtatious romance could arrive (perhaps Thursday night through Saturday) – or better, an ongoing one thrives. (A brand new relationship will tend to stay light, not “grow.”)
August 22 - 28 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. A former educational, publishing, cultural, love, international, legal or intellectual interest, project or situation might return. (Or you daydream about it/him/her.) Returning to the past can reward. If an old ﬂame returns, a strong “career” or ambition streak is involved – e.g., he/she perhaps was once your boss, or a major client. Chase money Sunday (best) and Monday. Travel, communications mid-week – a turn of destiny could bring, aid, one of those educational, international, etc. things! Let things end Thursday night through Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A former investment, debt, secret, sexual, research, lifestyle, criminal/ police, diagnostic or health situation could reappear before Sept. 12. It’s generally favourable, could be a doorway to proﬁt, satisfaction. But think before you leap. During the same interval, start nothing new, especially in these areas. You’re going be dealing with heavy themes, serious matters! Gentle, true love, intellectual growth, mental creativity, pleasurable travel and/or legal process – all continue. Your energy, charisma surge Sunday/Monday. (Someone has romance on the mind!) Chase money mid-week. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Avoid new starts before Sept. 12 – in projects and, especially, in relationships. You’ll have plenty to keep you busy with ongoing links – including one from the past. These might “reappear” after some absence: negotiations, litigation, a relocation, partnership or business opportunity, or even an enemy. Take everything in stride, be ﬂexible, diplomatic. You might face a choice: To join or compete. Joining’s better, as your competition holds the aces right now. Lie low, rest, contemplate Sunday/Monday. Your charisma surges mid-week, triggering success! Money caution after Thursday. email@example.com • Reading: 416-686-5014
