Salmon returns break records But are this year’s high Fraser River numbers an anomaly or a sign of change? BY JOHN KURUCZ SPECIAL TO THE RECORD editorial@royalcityrecord.com

Get while the getting is good, but do so with a sense of cautious optimism. That’s what those in the fields of academics, science and politics are saying about the unprecedented Fraser River sockeye salmon returns, numbers that are projected to shatter records dating back to 1913. About 25 million sockeye are expected to return to the waters in and around the Fraser this season, a drastic change from the roughly 1.7 million that returned last year when the fishery was deemed to be near total collapse. “I think the most prudent thing to do is to call this an anomaly, because clearly, we’ve never seen anything like it in anybody’s lifetime,” said Simon Fraser University fish biologist John Reynolds. “What people should not take from this is any kind of sense that we’re out of the woods with the Fraser sockeye. Every year is independent of the year before, and so it’s not over. But what this is showing is that you can still have incredibly good news.” ◗Salmon Page 10

Verdict: Garbage, not a gravesite Bone fragments and other items found at the Mercer Stadium site were likely long-ago household garbage

BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Some items found at the Mercer Stadium site are believed to be from household garbage deposited at the site long ago. A $1.7-million complete renovation of the new Mercer Stadium track is currently underway. In addition to replacing the track, the project also includes construction of a new, proper jump area for field events at the north end of the site near 10th Avenue. Dean Gibson, the city’s director of parks, culture and recreation, said there’s been a lot of interest in the former uses at the overall site, which includes the high school. He said studies have been done and mapped out where previous cemeteries were located. “None came close to the city property and the area where the track is located,” he said.

As part of the due diligence for the Mercer Stadium track project, the city hired an archeologist to monitor the site on a regular basis. “They are monitoring the work to ensure if anything unexpected is discovered that appropriate measures are taken,” Gibson said. Gibson said a local resident informed city officials last week that they had been to the site and found some bones, chipped edges of a plate and a straight razor. “We have asked the person who has discovered these things to share them with us, and they haven’t,” he said. According to Gibson, the resident showed the items to the city’s museum staff but wouldn’t surrender them to the city for further investigation. Museum staff photographed items, which were shown to the archeologist. “Our archeologist has said it is highly unlikely they are anything but garbage,” Gibson said of the small bones thought to be from an animal. “Our archeologist isn’t suggesting anything unusual is happening. Nothing else has been discovered over the course of the excavation work.” Colin Stevens, manager of New Westminster Museum and Archives, said

Royal City says farewell to Howie

BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

Howie Isman, longtime owner of Royal City Jewellers, passed away on Aug. 12. Isman, well-known in the community for his annual Tie Day fundraiser for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, led an interesting and varied life. Born in 1917 in Kamsack, Sask., Isman moved to the Lower Mainland in 1937. During the Second World War, Isman served in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a member of the Air Force Band. Returning to Vancouver after the war, he formed Howie Isman and His Orchestra, leading with his saxophone and clarinet at famed venues such as Danceland and the Commodore Ballroom. After more than 40 years, his music career culminated in his life membership in the Musicians Union of America. In 1943, Isman married the love of his life, Marjorie, with whom he enjoyed almost 66 years of marriage before Marjorie’s death in November 2009. In 1955, the couple founded Royal City Jewellers and Loans Ltd.,

a fixture on Columbia Street. The business and its reputation grew, guided by Howard’s principle of treating everyone with fairness and compassion no matter what their station in life. Retirement was not in his vocabulary, and he continued to work in the business until the final week of his life. Isman’s charity work also kept him busy. The annual tie auction, which ran for 13 years, saw the Royal City man collect signed and autographed ties from all kinds of celebrities. Isman would then frame them, often with an accompanying item, such as a CD for musical artists, before putting them out for auction. Last year, Isman came through big again for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society, raising $10,845.50 for the charity. Isman wasn’t afraid to try new things with the tie auction, as last year he sold some ties exclusively on EBay. Because Isman picked up all the expenses for the auction, he noted: “All of that money (raised) is going to the food bank, and, with each dollar, they

Shuttle service changes raise concerns Bus route changes will affect Quayside, uptown, Fraserview

BY JANAYA FULLER-EVANS REPORTER jfuller-evans@royalcityrecord.com

Changes are coming to community shuttle service between Quayside and the uptown and Fraserview areas. The new proposed schedule has the Quayside Community Board president nervous. “There’s a large elderly population in the Quayside area,” Matthew Laird said, adding that access to uptown would be more challenging for them with the new schedule. There would no longer be a

direct route to resources such as Century House at Moody Park, he explained. The C3 and C4 shuttles no longer connect to Quayside, with the final stop now New Westminster station. A new route, the C8, will go to and from Quayside to New Westminster station. Passengers who want to travel to and from Quayside to Fraserview and uptown will have to transfer at New Westminster station. The changes go into effect on Sept. 6. TransLink is holding two community open houses on Aug. 31 to inform the public about the changes. According to Laird’s calculations, the new schedule means

there will now be six shuttles an hour between Quayside and the station during peak hours, and four during off-peak hours. This is a reduction from the current eight shuttles per hour throughout the day, he pointed out. Residents in the area will lose late night and early morning service, he added. “In a growing city, why do we not have growing service hours?” he said in a phone interview. The system is constrained by budget cutbacks and a lack of funding, something which Laird finds frustrating. “We’re the only Western country without a national public transit strategy,” Laird said. Ken Hardie, director of com-

munications for TransLink, was not able to gather specific information on the reasons behind the changes before press time, as many of the people involved were on holiday or out of the office. However, Laird received a response to some of his questions from TransLink’s planning department on The Buzzer blog on Aug. 24. According to the planning department’s message, service on Quayside Drive is currently every 15 minutes from both the C3 and C4 shuttles. The new services hours would mean shuttles every 10 minutes on the one route. The changes were made to ensure Quayside’s shuttle service is not affected by Pattullo

Bridge congestion, the message explained. Some of the C8 Quayside shuttles will continue from New Westminster Station to Uptown as a C4, according to the planning department. Service is being increased in the Victoria Hill area, according to the planning department. Bus bays at New Westminster station are being reorganized for Sept. 6 to accommodate the changes. The open houses will both take place next Tuesday. The first is from 2 to 4 p.m. at city hall, 511 Royal Ave. The second is from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Fraser River Discovery Centre, at 788 Quayside Dr. www.twitter.com/janayafe

Waterfront shack destroyed in Queensborough fire BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

A shack on the Queensborough waterfront that had been slated for demolition has been destroyed by fire. The fire department attended a fire at South Dyke Road and Wood Street about 4 a.m. on Aug. 19. The small building was located on the water side of the street. “It was boarded up, it was an old shack,” said fire inspector Brent Joel. “Some people had been storing stuff in there. Services had been cut. There was no water, there was no electrical.” According to Joel, the building had been slated for demolition this week, but there was a delay in getting that work done. In the meantime, the building

was destroyed by fire. The shack had been used by squatters. “There is nobody missing,” Joel said. “Everybody seems to be accounted for.” Neighbours have reported chasing people away from the shack for some time, including earlier on the evening of the fire. The shack’s contents include fridges, stoves, bikes and roasting pans. Joel said a city building inspector wouldn’t allow fire inspectors to enter the shack that’s in “really rough shape” because of safety concerns. Because there are no electrical services that could have contributed to a fire, Joel is surmising that a candle may have started the fire. “There’s too much damage to determine that,” he said about the cause. “We would basically be looking

for a needle in a haystack.”

Apartment fire cause unknown

An investigation is continuing into the cause of an apartment fire in Sapperton in July. Shortly before 1 a.m. on July 24, New Westminster Fire and Rescue Service received a call about an apartment fire at 352 Hospital St. No one was injured in the fire, which started in a suite on the third floor. “The place was just boiling,” said fire inspector Brent Joel. “The whole suite was engulfed in flame.” The tenant, who wasn’t home at the time of the fire, had only moved into the building a couple weeks earlier. “We confiscated some electronic stuff,” Joel said.

fines and potential jail terms. The new provincial legislation adds a “warning” range to the standard breathalyzer test. A reading between 0.05 and the criminally liable 0.08 will earn the errant driver a three-day driving ban and a $200 fine. Getting caught at that level more than once within five years ups the ante to a seven-day ban and a $300 fine the second time, and a 30-day ban with a $400 fine for a third time.

Research has shown that, although below the Criminal Code’s radar, drivers with breath alcohol levels between 0.05 and 0.08 per cent are seven times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than sober drivers are. Numbers of impaired driving charges rose 18 per cent from 2008 to 2009. That is unacceptable. That is, in fact, fatally unacceptable. There will be no tears from us for anyone who feels hard done by when they get nailed under the new law.

Pier park not for people Dear Editor:

Westminster Pier Park, an ugly linkage of words to describe a renovated, warmed over, probably contaminated dock next to a too-noisy air-polluted, diesel truck route and diesel train railway – all at an incredible, totally unjustifiable in any respect, cost to the hard-working taxpayers of New Westminster. Surely, the very essence of a real “family friendly” park is trees, lots of tall, magnificent, life-rejuvenating, refreshing, cleansing, environmentally friendly trees. Yet, city hall is replacing many old dock pilings that apparently have at least another 10 years, which probably means more than 80 per cent of them have more than another 20 years of useful life. Outrageously, incomprehensibly, as well, there will be thousands of new pilings.

Many beautiful large trees cut down, stripped of their branches, chemically treated just to have a warmed over version of the existing old dock, with no real redeeming benefit to the people of New Westminster. Destroying thousands of large trees, for no good reason, seems like bureaucratic insanity. Apparently, most of the suggestions, requests etc. by the downtown residents who participated in the meetings for the so-called pier park have essentially been ignored. Many participants feel their participation was only a formality, as in reality, city hall had already decided what it was going to do with the docks. So it seems the pier park is really only to satisfy the big ego at city hall and indirectly subsidize a big developer. The “infamous” fast ferry fiasco cost the

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Pier will cost residents ◗ continued from page 6

average New Westminster taxpayer approximately $200 each, however the Westminster Pier Park will probably cost the average New Westminster taxpayer at least the equivalent of $2,000, possibly even $3,000 each. The annual owning and operating cost will be another $100 or more a year. It’s unlikely that 90 per cent of the residents of New Westminster will use the pier park, even so, perhaps only once or twice a year. So the cost per visit per person could be the equivalent of more than $100. A park of piers, pilings and pollution but not for people. An incredible waste. So “stop the dock” now – so “stop the waste” now! Allan Solie, New Westminster

Police report outlines need for inquiry and awareness

Dear Editor:

I have just read the Vancouver Police Department report on the missing women, and it provides clear reasons for a public

inquiry into how this investigation, and others, have been failed by inadequate and inefficient policing practices and policies. The horrible tragedy and horrifying details revealed during and after the Pickton trial have many now saying that we should put all of this behind us. Pickton’s trial took place in New Westminster, and the VPD report indicates that Pickton may have been actively preying on women in New Westminster. But for heaven’s sake, please let us not forget that this story has not ended with Pickton’s conviction. To believe that and to act according will only perpetuate the conditions that allowed Pickton to remain at large for so long in the first place. There are still many missing women in British Columbia, and their disappearances have not been solved. For the sake of the women who were killed by Pickton, for the sake of those missing women in B.C. whose disappearances has not been explained, and for the sake of marginalized women now working in sex trade, the province needs to take action on these issues. Too much time has already been wasted, it’s time to move now. David Black, New Westminster

Tamils: Humane response required ◗ continued from page 6

Here’s another curious comparison: The real and significant Canadian immigration story of recent years (at least measured numerically) isn’t about refugees or people arriving by boats. It’s about the explosion in temporary foreign workers. The number of temporary foreign workers coming into Canada each year now exceeds 200,000 and now surpasses the number of immigrants. But the Harper government hasn’t been sounding the alarm about this. On the contrary, the federal government has been promoting and facilitating the massive growth in this category of migrants. Why? Because unlike regular immigrants and refugees, these workers are being specifically requested by employers, their indentured status makes them unable to exercise key employment rights and leaves them highly vulnerable to exploitation and unsafe conditions, and they are unable to make the same claims to the social and economic rights that

Canadians take for granted. Immigration is central to the story of Canada – waves of people who came, mostly to meet a domestic need for labour, and sometimes fleeing harm and conflict. But historically, once people arrived, either as immigrants or refugees, they were met with a social contract: They could avail themselves of the social and economic rights Canadians enjoyed and in a few years could be granted the full rights of citizenship. With the explosion of temporary workers and tightening of regular immigration admissions, the government is effectively saying, “that deal is off – we’re happy to have temporary indentured labour, but don’t think you can be a Canadian.” When my parents arrived in the ’60s, a small minority in Canada were keen to label the Vietnam war resisters with all manner of unwelcome labels – much as the Canadian government is currently doing with respect to the Tamil asylum-seekers

today, quickly labelling them as terrorists, criminals and queue-jumpers. But for the most part, the Vietnam war resisters were welcomed and went on to make a valuable contribution to Canadian society. Much the same can be said of the Vietnamese boat people who arrived in the late 1970s. Why can’t these better receptions be the norm, rather than the xenophobia that characterizes more recent arrivals? And here’s what troubles me most. In a world still coming to terms with the reality of climate change, the truth is that the number of global climate migrants and displaced people will soon dwarf the UN numbers sited above. Will this recent ugliness mark each new arrival, or can we have a rational conversation about what our moral obligations and humanitarian response should be to the global realities ahead?

Police investigate shooting in West End

New Westminster police major crime and forensic investigators spent Thursday morning investigating an early-morning incident where shots were fired. At approximately 3:20 a.m., the New Westminster police received numerous 911 calls reporting the sound of gunshots in the 2200 block of Dublin Street. When officers attended the area, they cordoned off the surrounding streets and soon confirmed that a house and a car, a light-coloured Ford Taurus, had been struck by bullets.

“No one is injured. We are so glad that nobody got hurt because this is a residential neighbourhood,” said Sgt. Gary Weishaar. He added that it’s too early to say if this was a targeted shooting or a case of negligence. Police investigators are currently gathering evidence and interviewing residents. “Our detectives are conducting followup interviews back in the office,” said Weishaar, adding the forensic team spent most of Thursday at the house. – Alfie Lau

Mercer: Track needs complete overhaul ◗ continued from page 3

According to Stevens, the nearest known cemetery at the site was located a couple hundred yards away from where the items were found. He said the findings didn’t sound off any alarm bells because people were known to dump household garbage in rural areas. “It was not near any known or suspected burial site,” he said. “My guess is this is garbage.” City administrator Paul Daminato said that no further items have been found at the site. “Based on what we know, we haven’t found

anything of concern at this stage of the game.” Gibson said the goal is to complete the track by the end of September. “It was overdue for being replaced,” he said. “We have been aware of the deterioration of the track for a number of years. Our track and field clubs have been very patient.” The plan had been to remove the rubber surface, grind the asphalt in the sub base below and use it as a new layer of asphalt, and place a new rubberized surface on top. It was determined that the asphalt is

far more brittle than what had been envisioned, so it’s being completely removed and replaced with new asphalt. According to Gibson, the city has a narrow timeframe to complete the project because the rubberized surface has to be installed when the weather is dry and mild. He said work is being done on the site six to seven days a week in order to take advantage of the weather conditions. The $1.7-million project includes a one-third contribution ($566,000) from the federal government.

Shots fired: This Dublin street home was the site of a shooting early Thursday morning. No one was hurt, but the home and a car were hit by bullets.

Smoke may have started fire

A fourth-floor balcony fire on Aug. 24 may have been started by a lit cigarette. OnTuesdayafternoon,NewWestminster police officers and firefighters attended to a fourth-floor balcony fire in the 100-block of Agnes Street. Firefighters were able to put out the fire quickly before it could spread. The suite and balcony sustained most of the damage.

According to a press release from New Westminster police Sgt. Gary Weishaar, the cause of the fire has not been confirmed, but the tenant had initially noticed smoke on her balcony and attempted to extinguish the smouldering fire. “The fire may have been started by a lit cigarette being carelessly tossed on to the suite’s balcony,” said Weishaar. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

Salmon: MP encouraged by numbers ◗ continued from page 1

The Fraser River sockeye fishery was last open to commercial fleets in 2006, when about 3.7 million fish were approved to be caught by commercial fleets. Barry Rosenberger, area director for Fisheries and Oceans Canada, explained that a number of factors have likely contributed to the surge, namely cooler ocean temperatures in 2008, when this year’s retuning salmon were in their first year in the ocean. That cooler water bolsters the amount of food for young salmon, while keeping their predators at bay. It also minimizes the amount of time and distance the salmon need to swim to find feeding grounds. That said, Rosenberger argued that there are still more questions than answers in terms of whether this year’s return is a sign of the sockeye fishery fully rebounding. “I don’t know that anybody has specific answers,” he said in an interview Thursday. “We’re obviously happy that we’re getting them this year, but there’s still ongoing scientific work and hopefully we can answer some of those questions.” New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly said in a phone interview

Wednesday while paddling down the Fraser River that while he’s encouraged by this year’s numbers, the federal government needs to invest more resources in the Pacific fishery as a whole in order to sustain healthy returns year over year. “Of course, we don’t want this to be the last good run. That means we need to take this fishery more seriously, we need to get on top of it,” Donnelly said. “We need better management, better research, and we need to make better decisions so that we’ve got good monitoring in place, so we know the numbers and we can make good decisions.” According to Reynolds, however, gauging whether these returns are a sign of things to come may prove to be impossible. “There is so much we don’t understand about what governs the returns of these fish that I don’t see any obvious way to very quickly assess where things are going to head,” he said. “Unfortunately, we have to ride out each year as it comes, but make sure we are precautionary in the way we treat these fish, and that we safeguard their habitats.” – Coquitlam NOW

Calling artists

H

appy August, everyone! I return to the arts beat at last, after a summer stint at the editor’s desk followed by some vacation of my own. The arts and entertainment scene spent the summer in the capable hands of my wonderful colleague Janaya Fuller-Evans (thanks, Janaya!). Now I’m back and eager to hear from you. I’m looking forward to starting up a series of Art Chats this fall – Q&A sessions with local artists of all types. If you know of anyone who’d be interested, or if you’re an artist who’d be interested yourself, please contact me. You can e-mail me at jmaclellan@royalcityrecord. com. And, for those who are social media inclined, you can also find me on Twitter at www.twitter. com/juliemaclellan. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Check out the gallery

For those who are thinking arty thoughts on these sunny August days, I thought I should offer a heads-up about the exhibitions at the Arts Council of New Westminster gallery. You won’t want to miss the current exhibition, Moments in Time, featuring work by Cheryl Nordvik. It’s underway at the gallery just until today (Saturday, Aug. 28), and it features a combination of Impressionism, New Age and Post-Modern work. Coming up next is Portraits and Portents, featuring work by Theresa Kitos and Lora-Lynn Oxenbury, running from Aug. 31 to Oct. 2. That exhibition will offer different interpretations of the same subject, with works in oil, pastel and charcoal. The gallery is open 1 to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at Centennial Lodge in Queen’s Park. ◗Lively City Page 12

Familiar faces in new city places

Some familiar faces will be performing new roles in the city’s department of parks, culture and recreation. Joy Barkwill, a longtime employee at Century House, is retiring as the city’s manager of seniors and youth services. She’s staying on to help transition her successor into the role. “Joy will still be with us for about six weeks, as she eases out of the role,” said Dean Gibson, the city’s manager of parks, culture and recreation. “We are conscious of the relationships our staff have with the public at Century House. We wanted to ensure we had an orderly transition so the continuity in services were maintained.” Leslie Cole, who has been the manager of Queen’s Park Arenex, will step into Joy’s role as of Sept. 1. The job includes managing Century House, where Leslie worked as a recreation programmer before moving on to manage the Queen’s Park Arenex. “It’s a little bit of a homecoming, for sure,” Gibson said. Jay Young, who has been a recreation planner at Century House, moves over to fill the vacancy at the Arenex. “For both Leslie and Jay, this is an

◗ IN THE LIBRARY

Music and movies at the library original hits. The life of country singer Loretta Lynn is portrayed in Coal Miner’s Daughter, from her humble upbringing in rural Kentucky to her career high as one of country music’s earliest superstars. The quality of the performances and Sissy Spacek’s own vocals make this a perfect movie. In what must be one of the most unusual movies of any kind, I’m Not There features six actors, both male and female, capturing different elements of Bob Dylan’s life and work. Rather than offering a linear portrayal of the musician, it captures glimpses of Dylan’s work, loves and influence, without ever actually mentioning his name.

BY JULIE SPURRELL CONTRIBUTOR editorial@royalcityrecord.com

I recently watched French actress Marion Cotillard light up the screen as songstress Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose. The quality of the film and of her performance made me think about some of the other great movies about musicians. Jamie Foxx gives an award-winning performance as R&B singer Ray Charles in Ray. The film portrays his musical innovation alongside his struggles with drugs and other demons. Foxx lip-synchs the lyrics throughout the movie, so the soundtrack is a wonderful mix of Charles’s

Walk the Line features Joaquin Phoenix in an amazing performance as Johnny Cash. Arguably one of the best and funniest music movies ever made, the mockumentary This is Spinal Tap captures the highs and lows of an aging heavy metal band as they try to stage a come-back tour across America. Starring Christopher Guest and Michael McKean, this movie will leave you laughing out loud at the bad luck of these second-rate musicians and their over-the-top lyrics and stage performances. All of these movies can be found at the library, in addition to biographies of the musicians and CDs of their music.

Grave markers – or lack thereof – tell a story OUR PAST

ARCHIE & DALE MILLER

O

n a recent cemetery tour, we stopped by sites where people were buried in unmarked graves. For one of these we know why there is no marker – the deceased did not want one – but for the other, we don’t know if the grave at one time had a gravestone, or whether it was never marked. For some people, an unmarked grave is difficult to understand: Why isn’t it marked? Who didn’t want it marked? Didn’t anybody care? Is the “government” to blame? There are many answers and here are some of them. A point to make clear is that a marker on a grave is not always mandatory. In some cases, a grave marker is included in the overall funeral arrangements. In others, family members

tend to this on their own at a later date and sometimes it just never happens. We know of some private cemeteries where marking the grave is part of the interment procedure, but as a general rule, public sites do not require a grave marker. One reason for no marker is that the person buried at that spot did not want one. An example of such a request is the grave of Arthur Wellsley Gray in Fraser Cemetery. Another reason is that a grave marker was intended, but actual arrangements weren’t made. We’ve heard stories of one being planned “when we can afford it,” and in time it was forgotten. In one example, a family regularly visited and seasonally commemorated a grave, but did not place a marker until almost 90 years had passed. Sometimes a grave was once marked, but over the years the stone was damaged, broken or vandalized, possibly becoming dangerous. Then, depending on the cemetery policy, the parts may be removed or laid on the ground, where in

time they are covered with dirt or grass. We know of instances where the family connected to the grave came forward to assist with restoring the stone, but this is not common. In Victoria, for instance, the Old Cemeteries’ Society will investigate the restoration of an old marker and might raise the needed funds and carry it out. In some cases, a community demands a grave marker and the citizens collect for this purpose. An excellent example in Fraser is the grave of Dr. AWS Black, whose marker was paid for by “a grieving community” after his death in the line of duty, in the early 1870s. If those funds had not been gathered there might not have been a marker at all. For the unknown or indigent who are buried at public expense, few are marked in any way. Some other stones are removed by families to be re-cut, then never replaced. There are many other gravemarking stories and much more to explore in this intriguing part of a cemetery’s story.

Young, who organized the Olympic Torch relay’s visit to New Westminster, demonstrated that he was able to take on a more senior position within the city “We feel great about that,” Gibson said about promoting from within. “They are already oriented and familiar with city operations. It provides recognition for the excellent work our staff are already doing.” Gibson said the city really only looks to outside sources when no internal staff are qualified. The city opted to hire someone from the outside when it hired Cidalia Correia is the new assistant manager of Canada Games Pool. She’ll assist Hilary Knowles in managing the city’s pools and overall aquatic needs. “It’s filling a vacancy that existed before,” Gibson said. “The previous position was not quite as senior.

Locals take on Turris

The good old hockey gamer: Kyle Turris tries his hand at the new NHL 2K11 Wii game during a promotion earlier this summer at the Best Buy at Queensborough Landing.

Hometown hockey hero Kyle Turris, a centre drafted third overall by the Phoenix Coyotes in 2007, returned home this summer to face off against local fans and provide people with an advance chance to play the new NHL 2K11 game. Turris, 20, was on hand at the Best Buy outlet at Queensborough Landing to give gamers a shot to measure their skills against an actual pro through the new Wii video game. The appearance was part of a North American demo tour for NHL 2K11, which is scheduled for release later this summer. www.twitter.com/Fleming_A

◗ FOOD

Want to cook perfect pasta? Here’s how ON COOKING

A

CHEF DEZ

staple in almost every home’s pantry is spaghetti or some form of pasta that makes its way to the dinner table on a regular basis. Many of us take the time to focus on building the flavour and complexity of the accompanying sauce for our pasta of choice; however, the pasta itself needs attention as well. Many food columns could be dedicated to achieving palate-pleasing goals in pasta sauces, but let us not forget about the substance of these dishes – the pasta noodle. Thus, this column will be focused on unravelling some myths and procedures in what seems to be

one of the simplest tasks in the kitchen – boiling water and cooking pasta. The first thing to examine is the dry pasta noodle and the transformation that takes place during the cooking process. The most obvious observation is that cooked pasta is larger in volume and flexible, compared to dry raw pasta. What makes this possible is the absorption of water during the boiling process. The cooking process of any food, no matter how simple it seems, needs to be analyzed because this is our chance of infusing flavour into the ingredients being cooked. Everyone has heard of the process of salting water when boiling pasta, but few know or realize the reason why. Some believe it is to help the pasta from sticking or to help keep the water from boiling over; however the reason is to season the pasta and to increase the flavour. Pasta on its own is very bland, and combin-

ing bland cooked pasta with a sauce that you have perfected will be a detriment to your finished dish. If the pasta water is salted liberally, then the pasta will be absorbing saltwater, instead of just water, and thus your pasta dish will be seasoned from the inside out. Another no-no is to add oil to your pasta water. This idea probably first came about to prevent the pasta noodles from sticking together; however, it will affect your finished dish negatively. Oiled pasta water will help to keep your pasta from sticking together when cooking, but a film of oil will always be left on the drained noodles. This thin film of oil will inhibit the starchiness of the cooked pasta and then in turn lead to the accompanying sauce to not stick to or absorb into the noodles as much. When pasta is eaten, you want the starchiness of the pasta to hold onto

the sauce as much as possible, so that the dish will be able to be enjoyed to the fullest. That being said, drained cooked pasta should not be oiled for the same reason. A better way to help prevent your pasta noodles from sticking together during the cooking process is to stir the noodles constantly for the first two minutes of cooking time. By that point, the water will have returned to its full-boil action and the agitation of the bubbling water will keep the pasta moving and prevent it from sticking. Once the pasta has been drained, do not rinse it. Rinsing will cool the pasta down and also wash away some of the starchiness that we want to help secure the sauce to the noodles.

Homemade “spaghetti” is a very common dish in many households, and whether you use spaghetti, linguine, or other types of noodles, I hope these few simple recommendations help to make your meal more enjoyable and flavourful. Dear Chef Dez: What is the best way to tell when pasta is cooked? Norma L., Maple Ridge Dear Norma: There are many ways that people use to determine that pasta is cooked to perfection – including the old wives’ tale about throwing it against the wall, and if it sticks, it’s done. The best way is to let your mouth do the talking. Carefully remove a strand

or piece of pasta from the boiling water. After waiting a few seconds to cool down, take a bite. It should feel “al dente,” meaning “to the tooth” in Italian. This relates to the feeling that the pasta should not be overcooked and offer some resistance when biting into it. It should not be hard, but it should not be too soft and mushy either. The package of the pasta you purchase will always offer a guideline cooking time, but your bite will always give you the right answer. Send your food/cooking questions to dez@chefdez. com or P.O.

Hyacks to practise tough love this year

’Bellies exit Minto with scare

BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

The New Westminster Hyacks varsity football team is going to need a lot of tough love this season. After losing more than 20 seniors off its semifinal-finishing roster last year, New Westminster is desperate to get back on a competitive footing in practice to keep up its topfive standing in the B.C. AAA high school football league. The Hyacks will roll at least three junior varsity linemen into the starting rotation this season, including 6-0, 245-pound centre Jonathan He and 5-8 Jordan Chin, younger brother of provincial allstar lineman Casey Chin. Yahia Gamaa will also sub in at guard and tackle this season for the varsity squad. “The kids are strong and tough enough, it’s tough in JVs to get better in practice,” said New Westminster head coach Farhan Lalji. “We know in order to have success, we need to be competitive in practice.” And that’s where Jamie Wandell and Nick Adomat come in. The fearsome pair of 17-year-old Hyacks linemen are among the few returning starters off the New Westminster squad that flirted with a No. 1 team ranking in the province last season. “It’s definitely hard for them because they have to go up against people who have more experience, but they’re getting better,” said Nick, a 260-pound tackle. “We don’t want to go easy on them. It won’t help them with anything. We have to be supportive

If they make mistakes, it’s OK. But they still have to perform.” Jamie, who tips the scales at 300 pounds, says he learned a lot about how to be a leader from (Casey) Chin and defensive player of the year Vivie Bojilov, who both went to Simon Fraser University this season to continue their football careers. “Just being tough is like showing (the younger players) what it takes to be a senior. Casey and Vivie showed us how much they wanted to win, and we’re trying to give that back to them, so they can teach it to others, too,” added Jamie. “The whole reason I

joined football was for the physical aspect of it. I was too physical for hockey.” Coach Lalji is happy the two friends chose the gridiron. “In my opinion, Jamie is the best lineman in the province and Nick is not that far behind. Both are in the 6-3, 6-4 range, … and both move exceptionally well.” Last season, Jamie seized his opportunity for a starting spot when Nick, his lifelong buddy, went down with a shoulder separation. “When (Jamie) got the starting place, he really stepped his game up. He took advantage of the opportunity and knew

how needed he was,” said Lalji. Now Lalji and company need his help again. Jamie and Nick have been fast friends since kindergarten. They enjoyed many of the same sports and being in each other’s company. But Lalji sometimes wonders if their friendship is just too good-natured. The two had no problem last season sharing the rotation and bringing a lot of fun into their practice regime. The coaching staff may have preferred to see a little more anger when the two were competing in drills or watching the other play from the sideline.

But both say they are all business. “We always want to see each other do good in games and to not take away any opportunities,” said Nick. “We like to compete, but others don’t always see that,” Jamie added. “In our hearts, we know we’re competing with each other.” And that should be good news for the Hyacks and bad news for the rest of the league. “People will think we’re not as good this year, and that will give us an edge,” said Nick, who doesn’t mind the anonymity of ◗Linemen Page 32

The New Westminster Salmonbellies were half a period away from a Minto Cup final. The B.C. junior A lacrosse league runnerup rallied to tie the semifinal in the third period against Ontario champion Orangeville Northmen, only to eventually fall 64 at the Coquitlam Sports Centre Wednesday. New Westminster struggled to get on the scoresheet in both matchups against the Northmen but eventually found the range five minutes into the final frame when Brandon Goodwin’s spin-around shot found its way across the goalline. Two minutes later Cody Bremner went baseline to close the gap to 4-3. New Westminster’s player of the game, Colton Clark, then tied the score from the point on a power play with his second goal of the game. But Orangeville eventually prevailed, bagging the game-winning tally from Brandon Ivey on a rebound off the end boards. Cody McMahon iced Orangeville’s victory with a transition goal off the bench in the final five minutes of play.

Salmonbellies sweep ’Rocks, on to third Mann final BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

The New Westminster Salmonbellies are on their way to a third consecutive Mann Cup. The Salmonbellies made short work of the Victoria Shamrocks, dispatching the Western Lacrosse Association regular season runner-up in four straight games in the playoff final series Tuesday. New Westminster made no mistake of its intentions, scoring nine goals in the opening period en route to a 17-8 victory over the ‘Rocks at Bear Mountain Arena. Victoria surprised the visitors with a goal in the first minute

of play. But the Salmonbellies replied with seven straight goals in a 10-minute span to chase starting goalie Nick Patterson from the Victoria goal and put the game almost out of reach. Playoff MVP Jordan Hall counted a first-period hat trick, while first star, rookie Alex Gajic, led all scorers with five goals and eight total points. Craig Conn counted six assists for a team second-best 24 playoff helpers. Matt Roik took the third game star with a 44-save performance for the ‘Bellies. “We had a great start. We jumped all over them,” said Salmonbellies head coach Bob

Salt. The quick 9-2 deficit led to Victoria pulling its goaltender for an extra attacker throughout the match in an attempt to play catchup. That created a lot of fiveon-six situations for the New Westminster defence that was frustrating to play against but helpful in preparing for what’s to come at the Mann in Ontario, said Salt. “We’re going East and we had a lot of practice with our zone. Everyone on our D-end can play it now,” he said. “We really played.” Ilija Gajic, with a seven-point

night, Jordan McBride and Cliff Smith with four-point outings, all added two goals apiece to the ‘Bellie win. WLA playoff scoring leader, Rhys Duch, was held to just two points. After an on-again, off-again 13-5-0 regular season that New Westminster won by just four points over Victoria, the defending playoff champs became more dominant as the post season progressed. “It’s like (we) couldn’t wait to get it over and start the playoffs. ... We responded in the end. Once we got them together, our boys put it into their minds they

wanted to go back to the Mann Cup. They allowed us to coach them,” said Salt. What they took to heart was a simple philosophy called Bellie Ball, Salt added. That system consists of a help defence that pressures the ball carrier, and up front, an offence that moves the ball and cuts the middle. “But it’s a high skill level, for sure,” Salt added. The wrinkle is that New Westminster has succeeded in perfecting it in tight quarters. That will come in handy ◗WLA Page 32

All games are 8 p.m. starts. “I think we learned a lot from our last game (with Orangeville),” said New Westminster’s Tyson Geick, a Newmarket, Ont. product. “We knew we could play with them.” Geick finished his first year of junior lacrosse with Kitchener-Waterloo following a 5-4 loss to Orangeville and current ’Bellies teammate Jay Card.

It would have been nice to close out his junior career with a win against the Northmen, Geick said. “It hasn’t sunk in yet, but driving away from the rink tonight, I think it will hit me in the stomach. “It could have gone either way,” Geick added. “For us, it would have been nice to have another shot at Coquitlam. But being an Ontario guy, it would have been nice to get one last win against Orangeville.” New Westminster head coach Dan Perreault was more philosophical about the defeat. “I just felt, even though we were down, we had a real good opportunity to win it,” he said. “We needed a little more goal scoring.” But that was no reflection on the effort put out by

the Salmonbellie players, Perreault added. “It didn’t slip away from a poor effort. I was proud of the guys for their effort.” The junior ’Bellies will lose just six players to graduation this season. They also have both goalkeepers returning, including Scigliano, who will have three years of junior lacrosse remaining next year. The rookie junior topped all keepers at the Minto with a sparkling .874 save percentage and a 5.42 goals-against average. “We’re very fortunate that we’re young,” added Perreault. “The team looks solid for next year. “It’s part of growing, before you win sometimes you have to experience a loss.”

Linemen: Hyacks open season Sept. 3 ◗ continued from page 31

being a lineman. New Westminster is pinning high hopes on its game-breaking running back James Belgrave, linebacker Ian Henderson and quarterback Regan Eberding. But Jamie and Nick, and even Jonathan and Jordan, know where those breakout plays are conceived. “We get the praise from the team and our coaches. Even though we don’t get the glory, we have the most important roles on the team,” said Nick. Jamie is equally bullish on the Hyacks’ chances this season. “I think we have the ability, too. We

have a strong team. We’ll be able to push this year and in years to come. I think we’re a lot faster and stronger defensively,” Jamie added. “We have played at this speed and level, the (first-year players) are just trying to catch up a little.” The Hyacks open their 2010 season with an exhibition game against Kennedy High School in Oregon on Sept. 3. Their Friday night home opener will be played against provincial finalist W.J. Mouat at Mercer Stadium on Sept. 10. The Hyacks Homecoming Game is scheduled for the following week against the Terry Fox Ravens.

WLA: Mann Cup back East on Sept. 10 ◗ continued from page 31

Peterborough Lakers, who are currently tied 1-1 in the Ontario Major League playoff final series.

The Mann Cup will take place starting on Sept. 10 at the home of the eastern series winner.

CAREER COACH

Work: Life Sentence or Love Life

This article is by Deb Little, Guest Columnist, Wellness Coach and Career Development Advisor.

People can and do spend years - and even decades - in a career that they do not love because they receive a substantial financial reward that keeps them from pursuing other options. This is a bleak career perspective because money can keep people stuck in a holding pattern. We convince ourselves that maybe we DO like our job since we do not want to lose the money it brings in, and then we get up every day with a sense of dread about having to go to work. While living this type of reality we begin to feel trapped, unhappy and even angry about our situation. There are other symptoms of working only for money such as poor attendance at work, poor attention with work, and even actual physical health symptoms like exhaustion; depression; or physical pain. If this describes your situation I can relate because that used to be my life. Pain, dread and – egad! – fear of something different. At 45 years old and eighteen years into the Transportation industry I thought it was a life sentence with no opportunity for parole. Due to illness I went on a medical disability and while I was off, I participated in the Transitions career exploration program. This program helped me unravel my belief system around the world of work. I gained a clear understanding of what my values and interests were so that I could redefine my choices about work by what I like to do and what was important to me. With this clarity I have managed through uncertain times to rediscover myself and come out the other side. As a career and relationship coach I love my work. It keeps me healthy, creative and energized. For information about the Transitions Program call 604-434-117 7. This government funded (no fee) three-week career exploration program is available to anyone who is unemployed or under employed and eligible to work in Canada.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Tackle those piles of work. It’s nit-picky, detailed work, and all the details are rife with mistakes, camouflaged instructions, missing pieces. But you gotta do it – so march ahead. Important relationships – friends, enemies, lovers, partners, competitors, counsellors – remain unusually favourable. You might give or receive attention. One who is attracted, or attracts, is a “door” to worldly success. (E.g., that sexy person might also bring career luck.) Better if you met some time ago. Start nothing major before Sept. 12. Chase money Sunday/Monday. Be home Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Romance wafts happily on the breeze! An old flame could grow hotter, especially if a co-worker is involved. Beauty, pleasure and a nice winning streak accompany you. A former recreational or creative venture might return. There’s still plenty of work to do, though. One chore, which might involve education, travel, cultural or media work, will take about two more years to complete. Your energy and charisma soar Sunday to Tuesday – tackle things that usually intimidate you, and see how easily you achieve! Money’s lucky Thursday. Be a friend Friday/Saturday. Career intuition is accurate. Gemini May 21-June 20: The weeks ahead accent your domestic situation, kids, security, real estate, gardening, nutrition and “the end of matters.” Usually this is a good time to decide who and what belongs in your life, and who/what should be left behind. But make no big decisions (in any of the areas listed) before Sept. 12. Your romantic prospects remain high, but attraction might compete with a natural physical lethargy – or, romance and co-habitation make a natural “pair.” You’re weary but lucky Sunday/Monday. Your charisma’s obvious midweek. You’re discovering love’s “other benefits.”

Cancer June 21-July 22: Communications, travel, paperwork, details, errands, casual acquaintances and “daily business” are accented now—and all are delayed or prone to mistakes. Check addresses on mail, figures on cheques, etc. Don’t start anything important before Sept. 12, particularly in these zones. (E.g., avoid a new advertising “mail out.”) You might hear long-lost news, receive a “lost letter,” hear from an old friend, etc. Your home remains sweet’n’sour, but ends “inspired.” Optimism, popularity and social joys bless you Sunday to Tuesday! Lie low mid-week. Your energy, charisma return Friday/Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your money (and career) luck rises, but more from past efforts, contacts, than new ones. Don’t launch any ventures before Sept. 12, especially in money areas. If you absolutely need a job, seek and land it (Sunday to Tuesday are good for this) – but realize that you will want to, will benefit, if you seek a new one within a year. (You’re headed for great career luck June 2011-June 2012, but that’s then.) Mid-week brings happiness, good friends, popularity, flirtations – with a Gemini? But retreat, lie low and contemplate (don’t plan) Friday/ Saturday. The best partner is a friend. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness reach a yearly high – but that effectiveness is confined to ongoing and “returning” projects (and people – a former attraction might be rekindled). Beware starting important new things before Sept. 12. Intellectual, far travel, educational, publishing, religious or cultural affairs flow very well Sunday to Tuesday afternoon. Love is gentle, wide. Your career and relations with higher-ups (including parents, police) are emphasized mid-week.All’s well, but don’t act unpredictably Thursday night. Hopes and friends make a good combo Friday/Saturday!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. Secrets, mysteries, financial plums, intimate clinches, subconscious desires surfacing – these fill Sunday through Tuesday. (Best Sunday, Monday morning.) Work in the background all week, especially these three days – a government agency, institution, large corporation or charitable organization could be your ally. Wisdom, a mellow mood, and matters of law, culture, education, thought, love and “meaning” arise mid-week – with misunderstandings Wednesday, sweet understandings Thursday. Don’t push anyone Friday/Saturday. All week, conserve energy. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Wishes can come true this week and next – especially former wishes, events you wanted to occur in the past, then gave up on. (E.g., a sweet or flirtatious friend returning.) (You might be tempted by a clandestine romance August and September.) Remember, start nothing new – projects nor important links – before Sept. 12. Relationships fill Sunday to Tuesday – open, exciting, sometimes challenging relationships. Be diplomatic, eager to join. Sex, secrets, intimate commitments, “big” finances arise mid-week. (All’s well.) Avoid ethical, educational, publishing commitments late week. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Delay major initiatives until Sept. 12. Stick with the old or ongoing – and protect these from mistakes and “no shows,” especially in business and career zones. This is a fairly easy, mellow week. You’ll have to work hard – your performance is being watched. But friends, light flirtations, entertainment and happy hopes lighten every day! Tackle work Sunday to Tuesday – success awaits. Relationships, opportunities and challenges fill Tuesday eve to Thursday. Be open, honest, receptive: love’s “around.” Careful with finances, sex, commitments (no pregnancies!) Friday/Saturday.

August 29 - Sept. 4 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Sweet, mellow thoughts, solutions, dreams, revisions float through your head – but if you actually sit down to write them out, you’ll discover they were “gossamer on the breeze” – insubstantial, impractical, even nonsensical. This gossamer is the “chatter” as your lower mind sorts out the past two years. The true results are substantial and beneficial – and sub-conscious. Do events since 2008 seem grim? No worries: you are coming into your power. Your career efforts need pruning: encourage growth by ending/clipping some involvements. Early week, love, pleasure. Mid: work. Late: caution. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Secrets, mysteries, dreams, subconscious desires (and fears) research, diagnosis, health, investments, debts, large finances, lifestyle choices, commitments, sexual intimacy – these are emphasized, and in all, mistakes run rife. However, these are also mines filled with rich veins running through the past – there might be an old investment, a former intimate partner, an old piece of research that holds deep benefits for you! (Most likely to appear Sunday to Tuesday.) But make NO new investments (etc.) before Sept. 12. Romance calls mid-week. Careful with health, chores Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb.19-March20:Thepastisalive;thepresent, as if scared, dithers around, circling uncertainties. So deal with the past – former agreements, opportunities, negotiations, relationships. These yield benefits. Every relationship holds something in its hands: money, love, sex, commitment, the future: especially now. The deeper you plunge, the more you will find, most of it gratifying. You could get hooked on someone, August September! Sunday to Tuesday accent travel, communications. Mid-week draws you toward home, foundations. Friday/Saturday bring romantic, pleasure urges: be honest, cautious. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014

Health care jobs on the rise these new Canadian seniors will be creating a significant demand for health care across the board. In addition to the increased need for health care, as older workers retire, the mass retirement will create openings for advancement and entry into jobs previously held by boomers. In short, the swell in the senior population spells out security for workers in the health care industry and opportunity for students seeking a future with good prospects. According to Jobfutures. ca, Canada’s National Career and Education planning tool, a number of occupations in the health care industry have been given the “Good Prospect” stamp of approval. By “Good”, the government

Canada is on the cusp of a major change. The first wave of our country’s aging baby boomers is about to turn 65. With this milestone birthday comes retirement, of course, along with a host of challenges that will dramatically transform the country. Most significantly, mass retirement will have a striking impact upon employment and health care in Canada. As Canadians enter their golden years, they will be turning to the medical community to keep them healthy. In fact, over the next twenty five years, the passage of about 10 million boomers into retirement will present both major challenges and opportunities for our country’s medical system. From dental work to x-rays to in-home support,

of Canada is indicating that new entrants into that particular field have “a relatively easy time finding permanent employment in targeted occupations with relatively high pay or attractive labour market conditions.” Of the forty or so occupations listed as “Good” prospects for 2010, over half are in the health care industry. As the country prepares for the upcoming 25 years of boomer retirement and its accompanying need for increased health care, this number can only be expected to rise-good news for current and potential health care workers. So what are some of the careers that stand to prosper from this mass retirement? We’ll take a look at three of these rising-star careers to learn more about the nature of the work, the education required and what one can expect to earn while contributing to this booming field. DENTAL ASSISTANT Dental assistants can perform a number of duties in support of a dentist. These can include polishing teeth, applying fluoride, preparing patients for dental examinations, preparing dental instruments and

taking x-rays. Dental assistants require training in a college program and, in all provinces but Quebec, licensing is mandatory. Once graduated, Dental assistants can expect to earn about $16.51 per hour. The growth of employment for this field is above average and expected to remain as such due, not only to the aging population, but also to the increase in Canadians with insurance coverage and improvements in dental technology. PHARMACY ASSISTANT Pharmacy assistants assist pharmacists by preparing, packaging and labeling pharmaceutical products. They also verify prescriptions, maintain patient records and monitor inventories of medications and pharmaceutical products. Pharmacy assistants require completion of secondary school and a college program in Pharmacy Assistant or Pharmacy Technician training. Once completed, a Pharmacy Assistant can expect to earn an hourly wage of about $14.51. NURSE (NURSE AIDE) Nurse Aides attend to the needs of patients in hospitals, nursing homes and other health care facilities. They may be involved in answering call signals, serving meals, take patient’s blood pressure, collect fluid specimens, maintain inventory of supplies and perform maintenance tasks such as cleaning and sterilizing equipment. A Nurse Aide usually requires a college program with practical, on-the-job training. Once graduated, a Nurse Aide can expect to earn about $14.77 per hour. The next few years will bring many changes with them. For those Canadians thinking about jobs and what education or training they need for a prosperous future, it’s important to consider the effects of phenomena like the baby boomers. A growing and aging population that requires more health services coupled with new vacancies in these fields present a positive outlook for health care jobs. The three fields highlighted here give an idea of solid directions for students considering a new career in Canada but they are just a selection of the many opportunities that will be opening over the next few years. This period may be the end of work for some but it can be the beginning of a long and happy career for others.

Learn the advantages of returning to school

There are many people who wish time travel was possible. Simply go back to a period of life that you want to redo and have the opportunity to make a change or do it completely different. Those who are stuck in unfulfilling jobs due to a lack of proper training or the right schooling may have particularly strong feelings on this subject. However, you don’t need a time machine to rethink your career part and make a change. Simply going back to school can be the answer. Today, Education Statistics reports that more than half of all students enrolled in colleges and universities are “nontraditional students,” or those who are 25 and older. These are senior citizens who weren’t content with retirement and want to learn new skills. They are also men and women who raised children and want to further their careers now that the kids are out of the house. Some non-traditional students are those seeking advanced degrees so they can apply for better positions. Others are studying coursework completely different from what they currently do as an occupation in order to change career fields. Regardless of the reasons behind going back to school, the investment in education will help you reap rewards in the future. Here are some advantages of returning to school:

1. Feeling fulfilled: Scoring well on tests, answering assignment questions correctly and being part of a classroom setting could provide a feeling of accomplishment. 2. Greater job opportunity: Having an undergraduate or graduate degree gives you a better chance of advancement at work. You may be eligible for management or supervisory positions as well as have the potential to earn more. 3. Happier home life: It’s common knowledge that financial topics are often the cause of disputes in the household. Tight budgets and working paychequeto-paycheque can put stress on even the most healthy relationships. Schooling will help you to eventually earn more and can provide the relief you need with finances. Also, a feeling of accomplishment can carry over in your relationships at home, giving you a reason to be a happier, mom, dad or spouse. 4. Setting an example: Parents who return to school or decide to further their education provide a winning example to their children that perseverance can equal success. Children may be more likely to want to follow in their parents’ footsteps and value the importance of a good education.
