‘We’re cooking turkeys as we speak’ Union Gospel Mission expects to see more than 350 turn up for its annual Thanksgiving dinner BY ANDREW FLEMING REPORTER email@example.com
Thanksgiving in Canada is a holiday tradition based on celebrating the bounty of food at the end of harvest season. For many people struggling to get by in these tough economic times, it may not seem like there is an awful lot to be thankful for these days. Thankfully there are always people in the community who want to make sure nobody will be going hungry over the holiday. “We’re cooking turkeys as we speak,” said Bill Wong of Union Gospel Mission on Wednesday as the outreach group was busy preparing for an expected 350 to 400 people to stop by their drop-in centre at 658 Clarkson St. on Monday beginning at noon. “One of the things about turkey versus chicken is that it keeps its flavour if you refreeze it. So come Monday we’ll just take them out of the freezer and rewarm them. We’ve got cranberry sauce, apple pie, pumpkin pie, it’s going to be with all the trimmings. We’re rocking and rolling and ready to go.” This will be good news for Royal City residents who might otherwise be facing the holiday without the prospect of a hearty feast. According to two charities who provide food and other services to needy local citizens, more people than ever are relying on social service agencies to meet basic needs For many Canadians, the recession is

A recent survey of Salvation Army staff from across the country found that demand for food programs, including food banks, meal programs and street ministry units, are on the rise. More than three-
quarters of all respondents indicated that requests for food service increased this year while, to make things worse, food donations in most areas either remained the same or decreased in 2010. The charity
provided approximately 2.8 million meals to Canadians last year. “The recession has a long tail,” said Salvation Army spokesperson Graham

Homeless numbers dropping in New West firstname.lastname@example.org
Anecdotal evidence indicates that fewer people are living on the streets of New Westminster than a year or two ago. The 2008 24-hour count of homeless people found that there were 124 people
who were homeless in New Westminster, with 72 of them living on the street. That was an increase of 35 per cent from the count that was done in 2005. The homeless count is generally considered an undercount because it doesn’t include people who are “couch surfing” or staying in detox facilities, holding cells,

Howay gets facelift – others get upgrades BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER
The board of education held its first public meeting of the school year at the recently spruced up F.W. Howay Elementary, a school that got $400,000 in upgrades over the summer. The school’s renos included a new fire sprinkler system, new hallway and classroom flooring, asbestos abatement, painting inside and out, new ceiling tiles and electrical upgrades. “In my opinion, Howay isn’t one of the oldest schools in the district, but it was in the most
need (of upgrades),” Doug Templeton, the district’s director of facilities and operations, told the board of education. Howay parents had been calling for worn-out carpets at the school to be replaced for the last couple of years. “We are very pleased with the renovations,” Howay parent and district parent advisory council chair Paul Johansen told The Record. “Children, parents and staff were very happy with the renos, and they were long overdue.” Howay’s office was also moved from the back of the school to the
front, for security purposes. Howay is just one of a number of schools where maintenance work is underway. Much of the work was completed during the summer school break, but work will continue during the fall and winter months, Templeton told the board. The restoration of the annual maintenance grant, a provincial grant given to school districts, enabled the district to pay for the much-needed work at Howay and other schools. The ministry had axed the maintenance grant in August 2009 without warning. That grant
brought $1.1 million into the district. The district has also devised a five-year plan for minor renovations at schools. The plan is subject to funding, Templeton told the board.

Rare heritage duplex will be restored BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
It was built on a small apple orchard sometime in the late 1800s, and now a city duplex will become a triplex and have an option of becoming a four-plex in the future. Council has approved a heritage revitalization agreement to convert the existing duplex at 437 Seventh St. into three residential units and retain the option of adding a fourth unit in the future. The building is located on land that’s designated as community commercial districts highrise. Julie Schueck, the city’s heritage planner, said the heritage revitalization agreement allows a residence to be provided at grade in a commercial zone. She said it also allows off-street parking, which
has been a concern expressed by some neighbours. “The site has never had on-site parking,” she said. “There is no way to get it on site because it is so small.” A small apple orchard was once located at the property. A highrise and one-storey commercial building are located next to the home. According to the a statement of significance prepared about the property, the house was built in 1893 and is valued for its association with the very early residential development of the uptown neighbourhood. “A landmark in this neighbourhood of mixed-used buildings of a variety of ages and building styles, the house is significant for its age and is one of the last remaining indicators of the very early housing developments in the uptown
neighbourhood, in what was originally a residential subdivision of the downtown centre of New Westminster in the 1860s and ’70s,” said the document. “Its context has shifted with changes to the neighbourhood, and it is now close to a major commercial centre.” Schueck said she knows of only two other pre-1900 duplexes located in the city. “It’s a rare example of a pre-1900 duplex. It’s really neat,” she said. “It’s in pretty good shape.” In addition to being valued as a duplex residence and for its age, the house was the home of Francis Orra Canfield, who’s considered a prominent figure in the city’s history. A principal of Lord Kelvin school and a leader in the education field, he was also active in a number of community groups and benevolent associations.
“Previous to the purchase by the current owners, the property was rundown and the city had many enforcement issues with former occupants,” said a staff report. “The applicants, through their considerable financial and emotional commitment, are restoring the house and making a significant improvement to the streetscape. Although some work has been carried out without permits, the quality of the work is in keeping with current heritage conservation standards.” The owners are proposing to create two rental units on the northwest side of the building and an owner-occupied unit on the other side of the house. They would also like the option of converting the owner-occupied unit’s main floor into a fourth unit in the future, which would reduce the size of their own unit.

Homelessness Action Week raises awareness
BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Artwork that’s been created by homeless artists will assist other individuals who are homeless. Homeless artists living in the Downtown Eastside or the bushes of Stanley Park created seven pieces of artwork that are being shown locally and being auctioned off at the New Westminster Homeless Coalition’s fundraising dinner in Inn at Westminster Quay on Saturday, Oct. 16. It’s one of the events taking place in New Westminster during Homelessness Action Week, which runs from Oct. 10 to 16. All proceeds from the sale of the artwork will go toward I’s on the Street, a new sidewalk cleaning service run by the coalition that is employing eight people who live with mental health issues and/or are homeless. “The funds from the dinner will go
directly to paying for the salaries of workers who are getting $10 an hour,” said Coun. Bill Harper. “This is the first time they have been working in a very long time, and they are getting paid for it. Five of the workers are now in housing. You can see the transformation. They feel more confident.” Harper said the program has been “wildly successful” in the downtown. The goal is to expand to other commercial areas. “We are trying at the moment to get sustainable donors so that we can increase the project from the downtown to uptown,” Harper said. “They come twice a week. They go out onto the street and clean up the street in a way a city worker can’t.” Ken Lyotier, founder of United We Can, is the guest speaker at the Oct. 16 fundraising dinner. Tickets are $75 at the door or by calling Lydia at the Purpose Society at 604-526-2522. The New Westminster Homelessness Coalition, which has more than 35 member
organizations, is organizing Homelessness Action Week events in New Westminster. The week focuses on increasing awareness and action around homelessness, with events for people who are homeless and for the general public. “It’s a good opportunity to promote the issues and even some of the success stories,” said Coun. Jonathan Cote, who chairs the city’s community and social issues committee. “It is definitely still a serious issue in Metro Vancouver. It’s an important week to raise awareness.” On Friday, Shiloh-Sixth Avenue United Church held a Homelessness Action Week prayer service, which featured music and readings on the crisis of homelessness. Other events planned for Homelessness Action Week include: ◗ Homeless Connect Day on Wednesday, Oct. 13 at Holy Trinity Cathedral at 514 Carnarvon St. from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Homeless individuals can connect one-on-
one with free goods and services including housing, dental services, mental health and substance abuse support, legal counselling, eye examinations and eyewear, and assistance to acquire identification, employment counselling, job placement and foot care. ◗ Open Mike for Social Justice is being hosted by Beacon Unitarian Church, in recognition of the final day of Homelessness Action Week. It holds Sunday services at 10:30 a.m. at Sapperton Pensioners Hall at 318 Keary St. “This year there are events for people who are homeless, including a record number of special Homeless Connect events happening throughout Metro Vancouver,” said Sue Noga, a community organizer for the Greater Vancouver Regional Steering Committee on Homelessness, which sponsors the Lower Mainland events. More information about Homelessness Action Week is available online at www. stophomelessness.ca.
Numbers: Fewer homeless people being seen on New Westminster’s streets ◗ continued from page 1
but they may be located in more concealed areas. Stark said it wasn’t unusual to find 10 to 15 people sleeping near Front Street two years ago, but that’s no longer the case. The city still gets reports of homeless people sleeping in uptown locations and near Clarkson Street in the downtown. City officials have noticed a drop in people living on the street and are getting fewer calls from
businesses that are concerned about people sleeping in doorways or leaving behind debris or personal items. “We did have private security in the downtown,” Stark added. “We didn’t renew that.” Stark believes the decrease in homeless people on New Westminster streets is due to the actions taken since a homeless action plan was developed in 2006. He credits improved collaboration among social service agencies, more outreach, a
regional response to homelessness, support from B.C. Housing and increased housing resources in New Westminster as factors contributing to the local situation. In the past year, new transitional housing beds have opened at Maria Keary Cottages and the Russell Housing Centre. More beds will soon be opening at the Rhoda Kaellis Residence. “I think we are starting to see the benefits of having those beds,” Stark said. “With the Russell and
Maria Keary Cottages, we have that increased capacity.” Stark also credits local social service agencies for catching people at risk of homelessness before they are homeless or soon after becoming homeless. Coun. Jonathan Cote, chair of the city’s community and social issues committee, believes the decline in visible homelessness on city streets is directly related to the opening of the Russell Housing Centre and the Maria Keary Cottages.
“It really speaks to the Housing First,” he said about a model for dealing with homelessness. “You deal with housing first, and then you can deal with the other issues that go along with homelessness.” According to Stark, the next homeless count is slated to take place in 2011. “If the housing count was to happen today, I think the numbers would be lower,” he said. “I think there’s been a lot of progress made.”

Memo from a disgruntled fan IN MY VIEW ALFIE LAU
ontrary to the office supplies commercial saying Labour Day is the most wonderful time of the year – for parents with schoolchildren at least – the best time of year for sports fans is October. Every major sport is either in full swing or in training camp and we’re not just talking North America. In North America, the NFL is into its second quarter of action, the baseball playoffs are going all day, the NHL season is kicking off and NBA training camps, including a Phoenix SunsToronto Raptors exhibition game in Vancouver, are in full swing. On the other side of the pond, the NHL opening games in Finland and the Czech Republic took place Thursday morning. And from European football to Formula One auto racing and the just completed Ryder Cup, there’s no other way to put it: It’s a sports fan’s dream time of year. Add in the fact that the plethora of sports-only television stations is expanding at a mile a minute – Sportsnet One is on free preview until Oct. 31, and
TSN2 is going gangbusters – and sports fans should really have no reason to complain. Well, here’s one disgruntled sports fan. Last month, the New Westminster Salmonbellies played the Mann Cup in Peterborough. The local cable carrier, Cogeco, was involved with producing the games for the Ontario audience, but all us Westerners got was a webcast of the game. The good folks at the River’s Reach pub in New Westminster got the webcasts going on their big screens – lots of wire and lots of duct tape did the job – and it was a pretty rocking place to be, even though the Salmonbellies lost. It was pretty weird watching a game with no replays, no score bug in the top left hand corner and action that would freeze suddenly because of a slow computer connection. Meanwhile, TSN, TSN2, Sportsnet One, Sportsnet West, Sportsnet Pacific, Sportsnet Ontario, The Score, the NHL Network, the NFL Network, Speed TV, the Fight Network and probably a couple other networks I’ve forgotten were showing a full complement of mixed martial arts, poker, sports movies, darts, thumb wrestling and tiddlywinks. How can it be that Canada’s national summer sport can’t get any national network exposure?
Conflict of interest is the issue
Re: Point missed on water ban, In My Opinion, The Record, Oct. 2. I read Daniel Caley-Daoust’s piece regarding trustee Lori Watt’s attempt to ban bottled water with great interest. However, with all due respect to Mr. Caley-Daoust, the issue looks very different to those of us here in New Westminster than it may from his distant vantage point in Ottawa. There is only one issue of substance here in New Westminster, namely, the clear conflict of interest on the part of trustee Lori Watt in attempting to ban bottled water in the New Westminster school district and in the process using our children as pawns in pursuit of an ideological agenda. As Mr. Caley-Daoust is no doubt fully aware, trustee Watt is a longtime employee of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), and CUPE ◗Sports Page 7 has been waging an aggressive campaign against
bottled water companies for a number of years. They see bottled water as unwanted competition for the municipal and regional water systems under their control. There is a clear monetary motivation behind CUPE’s effort to see bottled water banned. And in my eyes, and those of many others, this places trustee Watt – as an employee at CUPE’s head office in B.C. – in a clear conflict of interest as outlined in the School Act. Interestingly, but perhaps inadvertently, Mr. Caley-Daoust’s letter confirms that banning bottled water has nothing to do with the plastic water bottles themselves (as trustee Watt disingenuously portrayed) and everything to do with the water inside those containers. His letter also serves to confirm the monetary motivation behind CUPE’s effort to ban bottled water (as opposed to all bottled beverages) and further underscores trustee Watt’s clear conflict of interest in pursuing this agenda.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Excuses don’t hold water
◗ continued from page 6
The answer is simple, really, and it is all about the money. For a network to show something like the Mann Cup, it has to send a production team and announcer crew to the venue – not cheap. For a network to show poker or some canned pub sport, all it has to do is pay a distribution fee. It’s the difference between paying six figures for programming to as little as four figures for programming. It’s all about filling space in the 24-hour cycle that is television, no different from us ink-stained wretches filling page 26 of a 32-page paper. (All my page 26 stories are awesome and award-winning!) This week, a good crop of local events is taking place in the Lower Mainland, and very little of it is available on television. The Westcoast Classic Curling tournament at
the Royal City Curling Club will feature current Olympic champion Kevin Martin and current world champion Kevin Koe. But if you’re not there or not checking out the webcast, you won’t find it on any of the seven-plus all-sports stations in our fine country. The Shrum Bowl – the annual SFU versus UBC showdown – took place on Friday night at Thunderbird Stadium at UBC, and you couldn’t find that anywhere on television. The Vancouver Giants, led by new chief executive officer Stu Ballantyne of Burnaby, hosted the Kelowna Rockets on Friday and play the Kamloops Blazers on Saturday, and none of those games can make any of the all-sports stations we have. The Vancouver Whitecaps did play their opening round playoff game at Swangard Stadium against the
Portland Timbers on Thursday night, and that was shown on Shaw TV, albeit not in high-definition, so that was one saving grace for local sports fans. Oh, the Vancouver Canucks are also opening their 40th season of NHL play on Saturday night, and CBC will have wallto-wall coverage of that game. I know how the game works – television networks need to make money to show games – but somehow, it seems a bit weak when I can’t see a university football rivalry, the best curlers in the world and the best young hockey players in the world from the comfort of my living room. But hey, there’s 14 different channels with Daniel Negreanu and Brock Lesnar on them, so it can’t be all bad, can it? Alfie Lau is a lifelong sports fan and reporter with The Record and Burnaby NOW.

Re: Loss creates ‘chaos,’ The Record, Sept. 29. I was shocked reading your article about a non-profit organization that was booted out of the Royal City Centre after using the facilities for 10 years. You would think that with such a longterm relationship that the new mall owners would have given the organization reasonable notice during the summer months so that it would have had ample time to find a new location. The excuses that the mall manager uses – about the organization’s equipment and supplies left there, which prevented other tenants from using the space, and numerous break-ins – are inexcusable. If there were problems about other mall tenants unable to use the space, and breakins, why not inform the organization that they cannot leave their stuff behind due to
security and space problems? They have been there for 10 years! Surely this wasn’t something that came out of the blue. Surely there could have been some meeting between the two, long before this month, to reach some sort of a compromise. At the very least, the mall could have given the group at least 30 days’ notice (or really 60 days as they were closed down since June 2010, for the summertime) to take their equipment and vacate the premises before October 2010. To have the group show up at the mall, one week before they were due to reopen, and told by a security staff member they were no longer able to use the facilities, doesn’t bode well for the new owners trying to make a presence here in New Westminster from Ontario. Oh, and one more thing. They need to hire some good PR staff because this just royally stinks.

Apartment building responds to concerns Royal Avenue building has worked with city to deal with safety, pest problems
BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
A problematic apartment building is making an effort to clean up its act. In July, staff presented city council with a report about serious concerns about crime, nuisances and bylaw violations associated with the apartment at 101 Royal Ave. At the time, the city’s housing integrated service team had designated it as its highest priority and had implemented a number of actions to deal with the building. “The property owner has been cooperative with staff during the past three months and implemented a number of measures to improve the supervision, management and maintenance of the property,” said a followup staff report to council. Some of the actions undertaken at the building include evicting a number of problematic tenants, installing security cameras to monitor common areas such
as the lobby and hallways, having a professional pest control company address infestations of pests in the building and having contractors address fire safety and maintenance deficiencies. The police service has stated the improvements have “drastically reduced policing concerns and calls for service” to the building, noted the staff report. Only one nuisance call has been generated since Aug. 1. Coun. Bob Osterman said the city has had a lot of success with the building, something he attributes to the strength of its housing integrated service team and the efforts of Keith Coueffin, the city’s manager of licensing and integrated services. “They put a lot of effort into this,” he said. “I am quite pleased. It shows an incredible improvement. It doesn’t mean they are off our radar.” A staff report stated that the city will continue to monitor the property to ensure it continues to be maintained and operated appropriately. Osterman said the city’s preference is to seek remedies for problematic buildings, rather that taking drastic action such as revoking business licences. www.twitter.com/TheresaMcManus

Thanksgiving: Need for help is rising ◗ continued from page 1
Moore. “Every day our food service units are helping more and more families and individuals who are still facing difficult financial decisions, such as whether to pay a grocery bill or monthly utilities. As the Salvation Army transitions into the Thanksgiving holiday, we are challenged to serve a growing number of Canadians, and we will depend on the public’s support to sustain our mission.” The report, “Restocking the Shelves 2010,” revealed that donation rates remained stagnant two years after the peak of the economic recession, while at the same time, they are facing increased demand. On a positive note, however, volunteerism rates at food programs remain high. “While the findings indicate that in 2010, many Salvation Army feeding programs faced significant challenges, there is also a sense of enduring optimism for the future a future that the Salvation Army hopes will be supported by a community of generous donors and volunteers,” said Moore. Meanwhile, the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society (GVFBS), which helps count-
less New Westminster residents keep food on their family tables, say they are having the same problem. “While donations from generous individuals and organizations have remained fairly consistent, lineups at food depots and at partnering agencies have increased by an average of 10 per cent from the previous year, significantly depleting the food supply,” said a message posted on their website. “To make matters worse, food stock at the GVFBS warehouse has decreased by an astonishing 10,000 pounds from this time last year.” The non-profit society currently collects and distributes food for up to 25‚000 people a week through 15 food depots and over 100 community agencies in Metro Vancouver. If not having to worry about where your next meal will come from is something you have to be thankful for, please consider donating time, food and/or financial assistance to local food service providers.

◗ ROYAL CITY BUILDERS AWARDS
Port Royal Red Boat wins big at awards BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The Port Royal Red Boat development in Queensborough was the big winner at this year’s Royal City Builders Awards. The City of New Westminster and the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce presented the 39th annual Royal City Builders Awards Wednesday night at the Inn at Westminster Quay. Awards were handed out for modern development, heritage, accessibility and sustainability. Port Royal Red Boat Phase 1, which is located at Holly and Furness streets in Queensborough, was named Building of the Year. It was also a winner in Modern Residential and the People’s Choice – Modern Residential categories. “We are very pleased,” said David Roppel, development manager for the Aragon Group. “We have been working a long time in New Westminster. The projects are starting to come to fruition. We are pleased to have the city’s recognition.” Roppel said that winning the People’s Choice award for Modern Residential is rewarding because it says the work has been recognized outside of the development community.
“We have been 12 years working on Port Royal and probably have another six to go,” he said. “These master-planned communities take a lot of time to come to fruition.” Red Boat Phase 1 consists of single-family homes with a traditional appearance that are located on compact lots. It also includes fee-simple (non-strata) rowhouses. Other winners in Modern Development categories included: Commercial Renovation – Waves Coffee House at 715 Columbia St.; Modern Commercial – Columbia Square Plaza; and Modern Institutional – Russell Housing Centre – 740 Carnarvon St. (the former College Place Hotel). Royal City Builders Awards also give out heritage awards that recognize efforts to preserve New Westminster ’s heritage through restoration and renovation of existing homes as well as new construction. Winners in the heritage categories are: Exterior Heritage Renovation – 418 Fourth St.; Exterior Heritage Restoration (The Heritage Shield) – 239 Sixth Ave.; and New Home Construction with Respect to Heritage Streetscape – 509 Fader St. The Universal Access

From Tuesday, October 12 to approximately Wednesday, October 27, 2010, Metro Vancouver will be relocating a water main as part of the improvements to the Trans-Canada Highway. To accommodate the relocation work, Metro Vancouver will be re-configuring the flow of water in a section of the water supply system. This change in flow may cause temporary discolouration and/or cloudiness in the water. These changes may be noticeable in New Westminster, Burnaby, Delta and Coquitlam. It is expected that the safety of the water will not be affected by these aesthetic changes. Monitoring of water quality continues and the water remains safe to drink. Water quality monitoring will continue to ensure the water remains safe to drink. Further notification will be provided should the situation change. Cloudy water episodes of this type usually don’t last very long and the clarity of the water should return to normal within a short period of normal household water use. In order to avoid potentially cloudy water for drinking, you may wish to refrigerate drinking water ahead of time. For more information on water quality or water supply, please contact:

Traditional art goes digital: Laurraine Yuyuma works on a quilt in her New Westminster home. The local crafter is ﬁnding an international market for her crafts through the Etsy website, which offers a place for artisans, vintage clothing dealers and others to sell their wares without a storefront.
Local crafters go global online
Etsy gives artisans a way to reach out to customers around the globe BY JANAYA FULLER-EVANS REPORTER email@example.com
New Westminster’s Laurraine Yuyama has had a lot of success, selling her crafts and designs on Etsy. But these days Yuyama is focusing more on selling patterns on the site, she says. Etsy is an online marketplace for artisans, vintage clothing dealers and others to sell their wares without a storefront. Sellers set up shop profiles, and shoppers can browse, look for specific items and search for shops based on location, as well. Yuyama started her shop, Patchwork
Pottery, in February of 2007. Since then she has made 708 sales as of Wednesday. Her Etsy shop has also led to international publication of her patterns in books and magazines, she says. Her goal is to one day publish her own craft book. While Yuyama started on Etsy by selling crafts such as quilted teapots and teacups, as well as purses and pincushions, she now prefers to sell PDF versions of her patterns instead. “I couldn’t keep up with the demand for quilted teacup pouches,” she explains, adding it was difficult to spend a significant amount of time on a piece, to have it sell instantly. Patterns are easier to ship, as well, as they can just be e-mailed off, she says. “I can sell stuff in my sleep, practically,” Yuyama says. New products sell quickly on Etsy, she
adds, and posting often is the best way to keep clientele happy. “When I post a new pattern, I sell a lot,” Yuyama says. After posting a new pattern January, she sold 107 of the PDFs that month, she adds. But she averages about 15 to 20 sales per month, at US$6 per pattern. She also sells five books featuring her patterns on the site. Yuyama moved to New West in March, and lives in the Sapperton neighbourhood with her husband and daughter, which they really enjoy, she says. She also sells her patterns on her blog, www.patchworkpottery.com. Shelly Down has lived in New West for about 16 years, she says, and has been selling felt dolls and animals on Etsy since last November.
Her shop, Gingermelon, has had 107 sales since opening, as of Wednesday. Items range from Blue Beary, a felt bear (US$9), to handmade cloth Little Ladies, as she calls them, such as Georginia (US$68). Down also sells clothing for her dolls, ornamental art dolls made from paperclay and anime-style stuffed animals. Down discovered Etsy while reading an article in House and Home Magazine about a Canadian artist selling her work on the site, she says. She set up an account and spent a year shopping on the site. In the summer of 2009, she began making felt dolls and bears and sold them at craft fairs, she says. Her Little Ladies feature a hand-embroidered face and hand-sewn hair, Down adds. ◗Etsy Page 12

Last year, United We Can recycled 20 million beverage containers and put $2M into the hands of recyclers, employing 150 people in the process.

Re-enactors bring city’s history to life AROUND TOWN
he New Westminster Historical Society’s upcoming presentation will shed some light on the work involved in historical reenactments. The presentation is taking place on Wednesday, Oct 20 at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the New Westminster Public Library. The topic is: Historical Re-enactors – The Work Needed To Get The ‘Character’ Right. Last year, the historical society welcomed members of the Living History Group – history enthusiasts and re-enactors who take on the roles of colonial characters, especially members of the Royal Engineers who were stationed in this area from 1858 to 1863. As part of that evening’s presentation, individuals recounted the stories of researching a particular character or two. Tim Watkins, who portrays a local Royal Engineer
of the early 1860s, will bring an illustrated presentation that recounts the hard work, investigation and attention to detail that goes into being a re-enactor. “It is not just a matter of putting on a costume,” said a press release. “It is reading, researching and studying as much as possible to get to know the person that will be portrayed. Watkins’ examples will cover a variety of stories and individuals. As these people who are portrayed were real, an honest effort must be made to get their story right.” The program is free, and everyone is welcome. There is no need to pre-register.

reasons. We have in hand a piece of memorabilia from Ideafest ‘86. It is a triplefold, high gloss handout with six full pages of information, illustrations and photos promoting the proposed experience. It was to be a “two-month voyage as a multicultural earth station orbiting into our future in space” and a map highlighted it at one end of the SkyTrain line with Expo ‘86 at the other. A photo of the college concourse, matched with a drawing of the concept, depicts lights, structures, screens and all kinds of things now commonly linked to the familiar visual
environments of Star Trek –The Next Generation and Star Wars. The brochure shows that shuttle craft would meet the SkyTrain line to take passengers to the Space Station where they would enter a visual “fantastic orbiting sensorium” augmented with a sound system “unlike anything that has ever been heard on earth.” These “astronaut tourists” would meet robots and “interactive holograms.” There was to be 3-D film footage from space never before seen by the public and on and on over four levels of displays. There were so many exciting things planned for

ext year will be the 25th anniversary of Expo ’86, so watch for Historical Society presentations on that fair in 2011. But there was a proposed New Westminster event at Douglas College to link with Expo ‘86, and with the college having its 40th birthday this year, we thought we’d add a curious and little-known bit to the
school’s history. A couple of years prior to 1986, Douglas College announced that it had signed a contract for a project to coincide with Expo that would see the college’s concourse totally reconfigured into a giant space station. The name for the entire project, to be open in July and August, noon to midnight each day, was Ideafest ‘86 – A Festival of Ideas for the Future to be held at “New West Space Station.” Now before you wonder why you haven’t seen much about this in all the accounts of Expo ‘86, it is only fair to say that it did not happen for a variety of

CAREER COACH Happiness
Happiness – a simple word, but a profound concept, and a state that can seem quite elusive to us. As a Career Coach, I meet with clients who comment that they are simply not ‘happy’ with their work and lives and that they are seeking a Gregg Taylor career that will bring them more happiness and satisfaction. Although I do believe that finding a better job or a career that is more in line with your gifts, talents and skills will help, I can see that it isn’t the whole answer either. What I’ve learned from both my professional experience and my own life journey is that happiness is a feeling of contentment and satisfaction that emanates from a life lived in integrity and balance - a life lived ‘on purpose’. This does not mean necessarily having a world changing purpose, but instead deciding for ourselves what’s important to us – the people, family, work, and community we’re surrounded by and how we relate and contribute to each of them. Quite often I find that when I work with people through these questions many of us are living lives based on the expectations of society, family and others, rather than what we prefer and value for ourselves. Changing this does not mean discounting the opinions of others, or neglecting our responsibilities or commitments, but rather reaffirming our commitment to those things, and creating our own unique way of living out a ‘personal purpose’ in our lives. In our three week career exploration program (The Transitions Program) we take time to address these issues so that our participants consider carefully how work fits in with the rest of their lives and priorities. In this way they create a career plan that allows for a ‘work/life balance’ that is sustainable over time. To sign up for an information session about the Transitions program please call 604-434-1177. The program is government funded (no fee) and 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: The accent continues on relationships – and opportunities. Last summer’s taste of luck and freedom will return as a full meal the ﬁrst ﬁve months of 2011. But until then you have a number of duties – at least two major ones – to clear up. These are not mere “chores” – they entail an obligation, a social or sacred trust. They likely involve a legal, love or international affair, or a religious, intellectual, educational or publishing matter. Clues, reminders come Sunday to Tuesday. Be ambitious, reliable midweek, but don’t seek agreement. Social delights, love, happiness Friday/Saturday! Taurus April 20-May 20: Two weeks remain of drudgery and health concerns. Soon you’ll be free to give your full attention to the social and romantic hints you’ve been picking up, and the opportunity of these will last until then. Meanwhile, knuckle down to work. Sunday’s social and intriguing – perhaps with someone ”higher up.” But this eve and Monday/ Tuesday bring heavier themes: sex, intimacy, privacy, research, ﬁnances, commitment. (Don’t feel you have to commit, though.) Understanding, a mellow mood enters midweek. Be ambitious Friday/Saturday: prospects look good for a new project. Gemini May 21-June 20: The emphasis remains on romance, creativity, risk and reward, pleasure, beauty and charming kids. This isn’t the easiest week, but there are no major obstacles, either. Tackle chores Sunday a.m. – clear the decks for some evening explorations, bids or opportunities. Partnerships and marriage haven’t been easy since 2003, and won’t be this autumn/winter – nor Tuesday p.m. But next March starts eight years of peace, harmony, friendliness and interest in relationships. Loneliness will ﬂee! Be patient, ﬂexible until then. Depths, mystery, sexual and ﬁnancial attractions mid-week.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Home, family, security are still of prime importance. And romance, creativity, charming kids, pleasure, beauty, speculative risks still run a close second. A “prodigal child” might return in the next three months. Sunday morning, mid-day are romantic, in a friendly but sexy way. Tackle chores this eve to Tuesday. You’ll get a lot done – but watch safety Tuesday eve. Relationships erect barriers Wednesday/Thursday, so be diplomatic. It’s nothing major. Sexual urges, ﬁnancial inspirations/hunches, life’s depths and mysteries arise Friday/Saturday. Invest passively, pay debts. Research! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: What’s slow is difﬁcult; what’s quick is easy. In the house, with family, be ﬂexible, long-suffering, affectionate. Outside the house, follow your curiosity – it can lead you to valuable information, even to new friends. (Now to next March, you might make a friend who is surrounded by, or has an element of, mystery. This person can offer nuggets of little-known information, but don’t follow his/her advice about money or business.) Rest early Sunday. This eve to Tuesday brings romantic urges — and insights. Tackle chores midweek. Exciting meetings, fresh horizons Friday onward! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Chase money. Buy/sell, seek new clients, ask for a pay raise or extra hours (especially Friday/Saturday). Generally this is an easy, sensual week. Sunday morning’s very friendly. Both opportunity and opposition occur Monday/Tuesday – say yes to real estate, security, home, no to health or work themes. Romance, pleasure, sports, creative projects and charming kids ﬁll Wednesday/ Thursday – nighttimes best, mid-afternoons worst. Tackle chores Friday onward. A former opportunity returns to you now to mid-November. Be ready to “work it” December/January. Might involve property, relocation.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high. Start important projects, insist on your way, ask favours, and make personal appearances. Shop Sunday morning (especially for high-tech). This afternoon through Tuesday brings paperwork, communications, errands, casual acquaintances – busyness. Your home life, your security, and real estate, become important midweek. It’s a splendid time to institute your own schedules, priorities, to end some situations and lay the groundwork for the new. Romance visits Friday/ Saturday. Before 2011, new romance is not the “marrying kind.” Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Continue to take a restful, contemplative approach. Your energy levels are low. Still, there’s a lot of important work to be done, so do it. Important because either a) you’re the only one who can do it; or b) it promises to “almost directly” advance your own goals. Someone might be “sweet” on you – be kind, but gently evasive. Chase money, buy/sell, Sunday eve to Tuesday. Communicate – but carefully – Wednesday/Thursday. Drive carefully, too. Be alert, because events are faster now than you are. Retreat to home ground for some deep, rejuvenating rest Friday/Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The accent lies on wish fulﬁlment, popularity, entertainment, social delights and group efforts. Visualize your future, make optimistic plans. You might be experiencing a clandestine attraction – this has little beneﬁcial impact, and could hinder future love, which would be a shame, as the ﬁrst half of 2011 holds the promise of splendid romantic beginnings! (If you’re married, 2011 will bring creative and similar successes.) Sleep in Sunday morning. This p.m. (through Thursday) your energy soars – tackle big things, enjoy the attention! Buy/sell midweek. Errands, Friday/Saturday.

Oct. 10 - Oct. 16 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Be ambitious. Think about future paths, possibilities Sunday morning. Then spend this p.m. through Tuesday evening in rest, planning, research, preparation and dealings with “permission agencies” (government, institutions, “head ofﬁce”). (Attend to health issues, also.) Charge forth Wednesday/Thursday – ask favours, ask to see important people, make presentations, initiate projects. You’ll succeed! Money’s the subject (and object) Friday/Saturday. All month, your hopes are tied up with love and work. A co-worker romance might be growing more serious. There’s no harm in this! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A sweet, mellow, easy week, with a focus on intellectual interests, far travel, education, publishing, culture and love. (These slow mildly to late 2012.) Perform a money chore Sunday morning. Your optimism and popularity surge this eve to Tuesday. Accept and issue invitations, envision the future and sign on for entertainment. A wish might come true (perhaps not a romantic one). Rest, retreat Wednesday/Thursday. Plan and contemplate, think about your shifting spiritual and charity beliefs. Your energy and charisma return strongly Friday/Saturday. Romance is a deﬁnite maybe. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The accent lies on mystery, depths, lust, big ﬁnances, subconscious urges, lifestyle changes, deep health factors, commitment and consequence. These deep currents are overlaid with a romantic, loving, and “intellectually beautiful” atmosphere. It could be the right time to say “Yes” to someone or something! (Though, frankly, there’s no rush – next week’s good also, as is most of the rest of 2010.) Be ambitious Sunday eve to Tuesday. Wishes can come true Wednesday/Thursday, though it’s more likely you’ll simply experience optimism and quiet social joys. Retreat, rest Friday/Saturday. email@example.com • Reading: 416-686-5014
