Top cop turns in his badge Chief Const. Lorne Zapotichny sets his retirement date BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

After 13 years in the Royal City, the last ten-and-a-half as the city’s top cop, Chief Const. Lorne Zapotichny announced on Wednesday he’ll be retiring, effective Feb. 28. Zapotichny joined the New Westminster Police Service in February 1998 and was sworn in as Chief Constable in August 2000. Prior to coming to the Royal City, Zapotichny served for 30 years with the RCMP, including being officer-incharge of the 160-member Coquitlam/ Chief Const. Lorne Port Zapotichny Coquitlam detachment. “He brought a lot of dignity and a lot of dedication to the job,” said Burnaby-New Westminster MP Peter Julian. “I’m very sorry to hear he’s leaving.” Julian said he often ran into Zapotichny at community events and the chief was always helpful when asked. “I knew that if I needed any information on any aspect of federal justice or federal policy, he would give me credible and reliable information,” said Julian. ◗Top cop Page 5

Green ideas: New Westminster Secondary School students and Marie-Claire Massicotte, left, and Hannah Crisp want bottled water sales banned at their school. The Grade 11 students sent a letter to the school district superintendent outlining their concerns about the environmental impacts of single-use water bottles.

Students battle bottled water BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

Two New Westminster Secondary School students are entering murky political waters with their bid to get bottled water sales banned at their school. Marie-Claire Massicotte and Hannah Crisp sent a letter and a petition with 105 signatures from students and staff to superintendent John Woudzia in November. The letter outlined their concerns about the environmental and ethical impact of single-use bottled water and urged the district to ban its sale at their school. What the girls didn’t know when

they began the campaign is that the issue of whether to ban bottled water at the high school has been a political hot potato, with union-endorsed trustees at odds with Voice New Westminster trustees over whether to stop selling bottled water at the high school. The labour-supported board of education chair, Michael Ewen, has now decided to include the students’ letter in the upcoming board of education meeting’s agenda on Tuesday. Ewen decided the letter should go to the board level because it was sent to the superintendent. “They’ve gone beyond the school, they

obviously want to have a district response. In this particular matter, the board’s been looking at it, so John (Woudzia) can’t respond,” he said. “These are high school students trying to make a difference in society. I would think that what we want to do is we want to encourage them to come forward and talk to us at the board table.” Trustee Lori Watt, who introduced a motion to consider banning the sales of bottled water, said she was “thrilled” when she saw the letter. “I wasn’t expecting it, which is great. I always think it’s great when people are ◗Water Page 10

Companionship: Sister Glynnis pets Prissy, the foster cat at the De Sales Deaf Catholic Centre. Prissy came to the centre through the Action for Animals in Distress Society’s foster program, which pairs older cats and small animals with seniors in the community. The society covers the pets’ expenses and keeps tabs on the animals.

Finding each other in old age BY ANDREW FLEMING REPORTER editorial@royalcityrecord.com

T

he twilight years can be difficult in a lot of ways but for animal lovers in particular. Seniors who are used to sharing their lives with cats or dogs can often be reluctant to take on the renewed responsibility of pet ownership due to living on a fixed income or out of concern their four-legged friends may outlive them. Nikki Forbes, director of Action for Animals in Distress Society, has come up with a solution. The non-profit group specializing in abandoned cats and other small animals has created a no-strings-attached foster program where seniors can adopt older unwanted animals and not have to worry about either the bills or their pet’s future. “I meet seniors at local events all the time and they say to me ‘Oh I love kitties, but I’m too old now,’ but it’s really got nothing to do with being too old,” said Forbes. “It’s about ‘what ifs’ as in what if I can’t carry heavy bags of litter up the stairs, what if I can’t pay vet bills, what if I die and nobody will look after it?” Given that many people are also reluctant to adopt older pets (Forbes said many cats older than the age of seven are automatically put down in some animal shelters), her solution was to kill two birds with one stone: offer a foster program

ers are far from the only tangible benefits to pet ownership for seniors. Studies have shown that having animals around can have a positive effect on a person’s heart rate and blood pressure, while the caring for the animal provides therapeutic exercise or movement that can improve cognitive and motor skills. Action for Animals also makes sure the animals are well taken care of by their elderly wards. “The group also checks in on the pets once a week as they make their deliveries, which not only enables them to make sure the animals are getting the care they need, it can also be an important social link to the outside world for some seniors as well,” said volunteer Kristin Schumacher. “And if the litter box hasn’t been cleaned or Fluffy is all matted up, we can help out or make the suggestion that we take her in to be groomed.” Schumacher added that the program isn’t only for seniors that need assisted living. “Some of our seniors are actually young seniors still in their 60s,” she said. “Some people are still working, so some will also choose to purchase their own food and take care of their vet bills, but they also know they can turn to us if ever there is a change in their circumstances.” For more information about adopting a cat, call 604-724-7652 or visit www.action foranimals.net.

Top cop: Zapotichny to retire ◗ continued from page 1

What also set Zapotichny apart, said Julian, was how involved the chief was in the community. “He represented and led the police department impeccably and with a great deal of class,” said Julian. “He was a tremendous leader who was extremely dedicated to what he does.” Echoing Julian’s sentiments is his former Ottawa colleague. “I wish him the best in his future endeavours,” New Westminster MLA Dawn Black told The Record while on vacation in Cuba. “He was always a very, very approachable person, very civicminded and certainly instilled a sense of pride in the city.” Black, the mother of two police officers herself – neither works for Zapotichny – said having stable leadership helps the citizens of a city believe in the police. “A steady hand at the top,” she said, “that’s what Lorne brought to the table, and I think that has served New

Westminster very well.” Coun. Lorrie Williams agreed: “What a fine police chief Lorne has been for us. He’s certainly kept the morale up, and he’s been very effective in showing leadership, not just in the city, but throughout the region.” Williams said Zapotichny championed regional integration of policing efforts, such as the city’s shared canine unit with Delta and its participation in integrated units, such as the homicide and traffic units. “Our chief was also very much in favour of police not investigating their own,” said Williams, referencing the many times Zapotichny was called on for independent investigations for the RCMP and the Vancouver Police Department. “Lorne has done the city a lot of good,” she said. “He will be missed.” The New Westminster Police Board will announce a succession plan in the next month. – alau@royalcityrecord.com

OUR VIEW

tains and the ocean really justify these prices? They’re worth a premium, but not what we’re paying. In Britain, the thinking about price escalation is changing. British Housing Minister Grant Shapps told The Observer on Jan. 1 that dramatic property price increases cause “enormous pain” for those not yet in the market. “I think it is horrendous that a firsttime buyer would need to be 36 on average if they do not have the support of mum and dad,” Shapps said. “The

main thing everyone requires for their subsistence is a roof over their head and when that basic human need becomes too expensive for average citizens to afford, something is out of kilter.” He’s right. We don’t celebrate rising car prices or increasing food and heating costs. A modest home is a necessity and should be within reach of responsible people. When it’s not, individuals may profit, but the community suffers.

IN MY OPINION

It’s environmental, not political Dear Editor

Re: Time to ban plastic water bottles, Letters to the editor, The Record, Jan. 5. It was great to see students Marie-Claire Massicotte and Hannah Crisp challenging the school board to get on with removing the sale of bottled water from our school system. It’s been almost a year since school trustees unanimously voted to phase out this product and almost nothing has been done to date. An opinion from medical health officer Dr. Nadine Loewen was sought and resulted in her support for promoting our high-quality tap water in our schools. The bottled water motion called for a report on the status of water fountains in all schools. This was done with the intention of replacing old systems with newer models that allow for the filling up of personal water bottles. The tax dollars the school board will save by no longer purchasing bottled

water will go a long way to covering this expense. It is important to note that once the phasing out of the sale of bottled water is complete it in no way prevents a student from bringing bottled water to school. Nobody’s choice is being compromised by moving to an emphasis on tap water; it just won’t be sold within the school system. This change is part of a major shift across this continent involving schools, universities and major cities that have realized the folly of spending tax dollars on such a negative product when clean, safe drinking water is freely available. Recently a member of the Voice team has written a couple near-libellous letters attacking trustee Lori Watt and the union she works for over her introduction of the bottled water motion. These accusations merely distort the issue for political purposes. The bottled water motion has nothing to do with union jobs. There will be no jobs created or lost during this ◗Water Page 7

transition. It is merely a long overdue changing of attitude that costs us very little but yet goes a long way to reducing our carbon footprint. Marie-Claire and Hannah represent a generation of students who in their lifetime will witness a world that in just 20 years, according to the World Bank, will see global demand for safe, clean drinking water exceed supply by 40 per cent. It is gratifying to see such awareness of this precious resource in our youth, and I hope the New Westminster school board will respond to their challenge. All seven of our school trustees voted to support the phasing out of bottled water last January, and it is now time for action. Andrew Murray, Council of Canadians, New Westminster

Time to unscrew the spin on political manoeuvres Dear Editor:

Honesty and politics mix like oil and water in the offices of the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources. We’re told B.C. is leading the country on climate change. Interesting since Ontario recently claimed to be leading the world on climate change and Alberta, with its dinosaursized carbon footprint, claims it is clearly leading the way on carbon reduction. As of Jan. 1, B.C. outlawed 75- and 100-watt incandescent light bulbs. Gordon Campbell (can you believe he still has a job) wants to come into your house and unscrew your wasteful bulbs. Careful, Gordon, the new smart bulb CFL’s contain mercury. If you break one, B.C. Hydro smartly advises you to, carefully seal the mess into a glass container and bring it to a special waste facility. The end of incandescence; the minister would have us believe this is B.C.’s way to lead the country against climate change. Let’s unscrew the spin.

The light bulb rule is a federal regulation. The province is merely adopting the rule a year early; one that it has been mandated to implement. They are not lighting the way to a greener future, they are stealing the lime light from the feds. Oil and water don’t mix. I don’t really mind when people lie to me; it’s part of our culture. I enjoy when the huckster at one of the local thrift stores tells me the overpriced item I’m looking at is almost free or when my farmer friend tells me his produce is almost organic. What bugs me is when the deceiver can’t be bothered to tell a lie that you can stretch into being sort-of-true. The Record ran a story Wednesday (MP Julian won’t run for leader) saying that NDP MP Peter Julian will not run for the B.C. NDP leadership because he’s too busy in Ottawa as an opposition backbencher from the hinterland. I’ve met Peter – nice guy, but come on, buddy. Maybe what he’s really doing is calling the bottom feeders up to the surface to see if there is an appetite for MP Fin Donnelly to make a run at the provincial leadership? Dawn Black needs to do New West a big favour and call Fin. Glen Thompson, New Westminster

Thank you for saving a life Dear Editor:

It is 1:30 in the morning as I pace around, unable to sleep. I am listening to the breathing of my husband of 40 years, grateful that he still can breathe. Due to a medical emergency, he was seen to immediately at Royal Columbian Hospital on Jan. 2 by their cardiac intervention people. A tremendous thanks to them from myself and children for their professional expertise and excellent manner. Also thanks to the nurses in 2 North and the cardiologists involved.

Broken pipe shuts down pool for two days tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Canada Games Pool may be starting to show its age. The main swimming area was closed for two days this week after an eight-inch break to a water supply line that supplies water to the deep end of the pool and the water slide. “It was a pipe that would have been installed back in 1986,” said Dean Gibson, the city’s director of parks, culture and recreation. Located in a mechanical room, the pipe was visible to the naked eye. “You could physically see what was going on,” he said. “That happened sometime on Monday, late in the day. We had to shut the main pool down.” The main pool remained closed Tuesday and Wednesday, while the repairs were made. Although those repairs had been completed by Tuesday, the pool had to be refilled and the water had to be treated and heated before the pool could reopen. Gibson said the “unexpected” replacement of the pipe would likely cost $7,000 to $10,000. He couldn’t say what the impact of lost revenues would be but noted that other critical areas of the facility, including the swirl pool, tot pool and workout areas, were still open for business. Some swimming lessons were scheduled to begin on Tuesday, so staff called those families to let them know the lessons had been cancelled for that day. Staff also called some regular patrons to inform them of the situation, so they wouldn’t show up at 6:30 a.m. only to find out the main pool was closed. Although studies have been done on the Canada Games Pool facilities and outlined some of the work that needs to be done to the facility, Gibson said these types of situations can occur without much notice. “Unfortunately, you can’t plan for the unanticipated. They don’t always happen at the best time,” he said. “Anything I would consider to be of significance or major, I think we are aware of.” The 2008 parks and recreation comprehensive plan recommended that the city begin planning to retrofit or replace the Canada Games Pool and the Centennial Community Centre. According to a November 2010 staff report to council, a facility assessment that was conducted in 2007 provided information about the condition of the buildings and recommended renewals to ensure the “dependable

operation” of the facilities over the next 20 to 30 years. In November 2010, city council received a presentation and consultant’s report examining options for Canada Games Pool and Centennial Community

Centre. Cannon Design investigated possibilities for renewing the facilities and presented council with a series of options that ranged from $22 to $55 million. The options ranged from an upgrade to exist-

ing building systems to extend the building’s life for five to 10 years, to demolition and replacement of the existing buildings with new facilities. The most costly option called for a 113,574-square-foot com-

plex that would include a new 10-lane, 52-metre pool, a separate leisure pool, a 20,000-square-foot fitness centre, new change rooms, multipurpose rooms, food concession and various support spaces.

STRESS & ANXIETY Lower Seasonal Affective Disorder

By Dr. C. Hammoud, M.H., Ph.D.

! Recommended for its calming relief from chronic stress, anxiety, chronic fatigue, lack of motivation, inadequate feelings, compulsive disorders, eating disorders.!Helps to restore adrenal balance, mental well being. True evidence (Skeptics can call these people): ! For about 3 years I was stressed out. After starting #66 I’ m fine. I don’t get headaches anymore caused by stress. I’m more effective at work. I’m amazed. It changed my life around. Gerasimos Kallimikos, 25, Astoria, NY ! At times was completely non-functional. After taking 2 capsules within 1 hour “the fog had lifted”. I take some daily and had no relapse for 4 months. Maureen Lavallie, 67, Red Deer, AB ! No sedatives needed anymore. After taking #66 I felt a calm sense of being not #66 sedated as before but full of energy and able to cope balancing my many jobs, children, household and going to school. Highly recommended! Diane Lovato, 54, Norwalk, CA !I have tried other calming products. for 10 years. Bell #66 is the best. OwenA. Miller, 49, Rossiter, PA !Read the Bell website for many more testimonials and other important information.

Prevent COLDS & FLUS

The only cold medicine with a money-back guarantee. Four medical doctors that wrote in their book SHARK LIVER OIL that you can prevent colds and flus. Dr. Hubert wrote since his own high-school age children took shark liver oil they have no more colds. Dr. Haimes’s grandchildren have been taking shark liver oil for 6 months and he writes they have no more infection of any kind. Read on the Bell website: “I had 3-4 flus every winter. None #51 last 5 years.” “Amazing! All of us have no more colds.” “No more asthma, no puffer, no cold, no flus, changed my life”. In North America this is a by-product from the restaurant industry. No sharks are caught for their liver or their cartilage.

Bell products are available in 8,000 health food stores and pharmacies across Canada and USA. Store locations on the Bell website:

Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is called the silent killer. If your BP is higher than normal, try to get it down to about 120/80. For many people it is easy to control. If it does not work for you we refund your money. On our website you will find over 50 testimonials with full names and towns from all over USA and Canada. Most of them have listed phone numbers and are happy to talk about the relief they had. No money was paid for testimonials.

#26

Examples: “After 2 weeks BP down from 138/98 to 111/74!”; “Was on 3 BP meds that didn’t work. Bell finally worked for me!”; “Bell blood pressure combo is the best!”; “I had great success with all Bell health products!”; “Blood pressure dropped 25 points!”; “Finally a blood pressure relief without side effects!”; “I passed medical for my pilots license!”;

Canada Games Pool was built in 1972 and Centennial Community Centre in 1967. Council agreed to discuss the matter as part of the city’s long-range capital budget program.

WRIST PAIN

Bell Carpal Tunnel Syndrome #30 gave quick relief within an hour. I was hand milking cows and began having weakness, numbness and pain shooting up my arms. Pain increased at night. My doctor suggested surgery as the only option. Not true! The pain and numbness are all gone after taking #30. I can do now whatever activity I want. Marjorie Wilson, 55, Dubuc, SK ! I’m a car mechanic. Holding tools was getting increasingly difficult because of wrist and tendon pain. After 2 weeks on #30 I’m fully productive #30 again. Cancelled scheduled surgery. William Marrero, 56, Miami, FL ! I was wearing wrist braces. A woman saw it and told me she had relief right away with #30. I got some same day. It worked for me as well. Thanks a million. Diane Frank, 49, North Battleford, SK ! I’m a nurse and work with my hands all day. I experienced increasing pain in my hands and fingers. Surgery was the only option I was told. My husband found #30 for me. I have no more pain or inflammation since. You have a life long customer. Nina Wallace, 52, Dacula, GA

ARTHRITIS Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products,physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the food industry. No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100 testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some #1 examples: ! Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON !My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA!I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON!Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.!For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC!Others write: Can walk again for hours…Climb stairs without hanging on to railing…First time in 15 years can sleep at night…Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister.

Facts about bottled water vending in schools ◗ New Westminster Secondary School receives approximately $22,000 annually from its beverage vending agreement. This money is used by the athletics program (not physical education) for such items as: new uniforms, tournament registrations, prov-

City winery picks up more awards BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

It’s been more than two years since Pacific Breeze Winery co-owner Frank Gregus quit his full-time sales job with Pepsi’s Lower Mainland distributor, and the Royal City resident has absolutely no regrets. Gregus had been running the winery on Stewardson Way with partner Maurice Hamilton on a part-time basis – squeezing in duties between his regular Pepsi responsibilities – but he knew he had to make a change. “In this business, if you work part-time, you get part-time results,” said Gregus. “We’d built a great foundation (since 2005), and it was time to devote my attention to this full-time.” That full-time effort has resulted in Pacific Breeze winning a bushelful of awards, including being named Winery of the Year at InterVin’s competition held at White Oaks Resort & Spa in Toronto this past September. Presented by the founders of Vine Magazines, the InterVin International Wine Awards is designed to recognize and celebrate the very best wines available to Canadian consumers. The winery also won Best Red Wine in Show for its Killer Cab Cabernet Sauvignon 2007, along with a medal for every wine it entered. A 2007 Merlot, along with the 2007 Killer Cab, was awarded a gold medal, while a 2006 Syrah, a 2008 Chardonnay, a 2006 Acure Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and a 2007 GSM all won silver awards. Winning bronze awards were a 2007 Vin de Garagiste Cabernet Sauvignon and a 2009 Sauvignon Blanc. “Winning an InterVin silver medal is an incredible accomplishment,” said Christopher Waters, magazine editor and head judge of the competition. “Since only 35 wines from a pool of more than 960 entries struck gold, our silver medallists rank among the top scoring wines in a number of categories, including Chardonnay and Syrah.” Pacific Breeze’s win for Winery of the Year saw it beat out 68 other wineries, including New Zealand’s Spy Valley Wines, the Okanagan’s Cedar Creek Estates and Burrowing Owl Estates, and Australia’s Penfolds. “Of course we’re happy about being recognized,” said Gregus. “It’s a credit to our entire team.”

Top wine: Maurice Hamilton and Frank Gregus at Pacific Breeze Winery, with a bottle of the winery’s Killer Cab – its award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon – in the foreground. While Gregus and Hamilton do most of the sales and marketing, the hands-on winemaker/operations manager/jack-ofall-trades is Dylan Hamilton. “Dylan’s been with us for four years,” said Gregus. “He’s a big part of our winemaking team.” But the much larger credit has to go to Gregus and Hamilton, who source grapes from all across North America. “What makes us unique is that as a garagiste winery, we’re not growing our own grapes,” said Gregus. “We’ve got to find the best grapes for the types of wine we want to make. “We know that for our Cabernets, the best grapes come from California, so that’s where we get those grapes from. For our Merlots and our Syrahs, it’s Washington

State, and for our Pinot Gris, we know Oregon is the number 1 place for those grapes. ... We can go where the grapes are and make the best wines because of that.” Since their first release in March 2007, Pacific Breeze has won more than 50 international medals, including five Best of Class awards. The winery has also won several local awards, including the COBE award in 2009 for best small business, and in 2010, Gregus walked away with businessman of the year. At Pacific Breeze’s facility, there are French barrels where wine is aging, temperature-controlled tanks where the wine is processed and a state-of-the-art grape crusher where the wine process begins. The winery’s growth has been incremen-

tal, as it shipped 1,250 cases in the first year, got that number up to 3,000 cases in 2009 and is on track to ship 5,000 cases in 2010. “We want to be shipping 12,500 cases by 2014,” said Gregus. And to make that a reality, the winery will be expanding in the spring of 2011, with its facility going from 2,800 square feet to more than 6,000 square feet. “We’re growing this business at our pace, at a pace we believe is sustainable,” said Gregus. “Everything we’ve done has been non-traditional, but for us, it’s a model that works.” Pacific Breeze Winery is located at 6-320 Stewardson Way.

Tree chipping festivities on in city this weekend AROUND TOWN

THERESA MCMANUS

T

he New Westminster Firefighters’ Charitable Society is inviting Royal City residents to dispose of their Christmas trees at its annual family event. The society is holding its annual tree-chip-

ping event in the Canada Games Pool parking lot on Saturday, Jan. 8 and Sunday, Jan. 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. In addition to giving residents a chance to get rid of their Christmas trees, the event includes entertainment, a barbecue, tree-burning demonstrations (weather permitting) and more. People are welcome to attend the event even if they don’t have a Christmas tree to recycle. The New Westminster Firefighters’ Charitable Society raises money that

it distributes to a variety of causes, including the pediatric unit at Royal Columbian Hospital, the Lower Mainland Purpose Society and the Union Gospel Mission.

Grand opening

The Castle Crew at Dublin Castle is getting set to celebrate its grand opening. Although Dublin Castle sports grill opened at 319 Governors Ct. at the Pen site in Sapperton about three months ago, it’s holding its official grand

opening bash on Saturday, Jan. 8 from 4 to 7 p.m. Fore more information, see www.dublincastle.ca.

Helping out

A small band ensemble from New Westminster Secondary School helped entertain shoppers at Royal City Centre during the Christmas holidays – and raised funds for charity. NWSS student Ryan Wei formed a small band ensemble, sponsored by his counsellor Cindy Vit, hoping to raise money and

awareness for the homeless. “Last year we played at the Royal City Centre and raised money for the Elizabeth Gurney House,” he wrote in an e-mail to The Record. “This year, on Dec. 19th and 21st, we performed at the Royal City Centre and raised $326 (almost three times as much as last year’s). We decided to spend the money on organizing a field trip (to the Vancouver Aquarium) for kids of the Elizabeth Gurney House. We are really hoping that

through our performances, more and more people can become aware of the issue of homelessness and start to show some empathy.” Joining Ryan at the recent performances were band members Jenny Chen, Jenny Pei, Seok Hee Jang, and Elora, Mika and Niki Santos.

◗ IN THE LIBRARY

Winter reading? Check out some frozen stiffs BY LIZ HUNTER CONTRIBUTOR editorial@royalcityrecord.com

Let it snow. Let it snow. Let it snow. Then add a frozen corpse, a remote landscape and a brooding, clever sleuth. The result? My favourite kind of mystery. It started when I read Martin Cruz Smith’s Gorky Park, with investigator Arkady Renko, whose perseverance uncovers three mutilated corpses and one ruthless American fur dealer. Readers will enjoy the scientific art of the forensic specialist who helps identify victims by reconstructing their skulls and faces. Somewhat later, I was given a copy of Smilla’s Sense of Snow, by Peter

Hoeg, in which an intimate relationship with snow is the undoing of a massive cover-up and the murder of a young boy. I’ve since found the fabulous Scandinavian crime writers who favour complex plots set in cold, desolate, Nordic landscapes. Swedish crime master Henning Mankell’s thriller Return of the Dancing Master, while not for the faint-hearted, includes a well-crafted and intricately woven long personal history of psychopathy. Works by other Nordic writers on the shelf at the library include Silence of the Grave and Arctic Chill by Arnaldur Indidason and Frozen Tracks by Ake Edwardson. If you want snow closer

to home, try Charlaine Harris’ third in her Harper Connelly mysteries series An Ice Cold Grave, which adds a bit of the supernatural. This one involves a young woman who after being struck by lightning, develops the ability to locate the dead and “see” how they died. Brrrrrrr. Dana Stabenow’s A Fine and Bitter Snow takes place on the Alaskan tundra, and Snow Blind by Lori Armstrong sees the snow and bodies start to pile up one blizzard-filled weekend on an American ranch. Then come back to B.C. for a murder in the mountain town of Trafalgar in Vicky Delany’s Winter of Secrets. For fans of frozen for-

ensics, I offer two websites that are sure to fascinate: www.scandinaviancrime

fiction.com, or check out the list of Frozen Stiffs at http://murdermystery

Vagabonds return

The Vagabond Players are back. The theatre group is presenting Norman, Is That You?, a comedy by Ron Clark and Sam Bobrick. The play follows the story of Ben Chambers and his wife, Beatrice. When Beatrice leaves her husband, Ben decides to go to New York to visit his son – only to discover that Norman is gay. “Chaos ensues as Ben tries every ploy to put his son ‘straight,’ and when Beatrice shows up, things become even more complicated,” a press release explains. The cast includes Vagabond veterans Isabel Mendenhall, Pat McDermott and Alexandra Wilson, along with newcomers Harry Pering and James Rha.

It’s directed by Paul Kloegman. The play runs Jan. 20 to Feb. 12 at the Bernie Legge Theatre in Queen’s Park. Evening shows are on at 8 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 regular, $13 for seniors and $5 for students.

Art auction helps Operation Rainbow Canada

Artists’ palettes are helping children with cleft lips and palates in developing countries receive reconstructive surgery provided by a New Westminster-based medical non-profit. From now until Feb. 15, art collectors can bid on more than two dozen pieces of original art avail-

able at www.goodlifeconnoisseur .com, a website belonging to a West Vancouver luxury living magazine. It’s part of a fundraiser for Operation Rainbow Canada, a charity established by local plastic surgeon Dr. Kimit Rai that has helped nearly 1,800 children in Mexico, Lebanon, the Philippines,

Cambodia and India. “Over $32,000 worth of Canadian artwork has been donated to raise funds to cover international transportation for the 22plus-person team, as well as additional equipment to perform the much-needed operations,” said editor Connie Ekelund.

People are encouraged to not only bid on art pieces, but also to vote on their favourites, with the top three finalists having their work featured in a later edition of the nationally distributed glossy. Participating artists include Yvonne Maximchuk, Wojciech Nowakowski, Charles Spratt,

Marion Webber, Barb Bowlsby, Isobel Mantle, Shelley Cowan, Barrie Chadwick, Jeff Sawatzky and Danuta Rogula. Operation Rainbow Canada provides operations for children and young adults whose families could not otherwise afford them. afleming@royalcityrecord.com

U.S. riders win elite four-day velodrome omnium BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Larry Wright/THE RECORD

Knight time: Denzel Laquerta takes the ball hard to the hoop in St. Thomas More’s 62-48 win over Lord Byng on opening day at the Chancellor boys’ basketball tournament Wednesday. The final tournament placement games run all day Saturday. The championship final is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.

American Bobby Lea won the elite men’s overall omnium at the recent Saputo Burnaby 4 cycling racing event at the Burnaby Velodrome. Lea won both the pursuit and 1,000-metre races, while finishing runnerup in the elimination and points races at the four-day competition. Another American Kit Karzen placed in the runner-up spot, winning the elimination portion, while finishing in the top three in the other events. Jacob Schwingboth was third with top-three finishes in the elimination and 1,000m. Svein Tuft, who recently signed on with a new Canadian-owned team, SpiderTech Cycling, coowned by former Olympic silver medallist Steve Bauer, finished in a tie for 17th with a group of other riders. Zach Bell did not finish. In the elite women’s omnium, Sarah Hammer of the U.S. placed first overall beating out Canada’s Tara Whitten, despite the local Velocity Cycling Club rider’s superior overall time after five events. Hammer won the elimination and the 500m. Whitten topped all riders in the pursuit and points races. Joanne Kelsanowski of New Zealand placed third.

BCIT the karate place to be BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

More than 600 martial artists will converge on Burnaby for the 2011 Karate B.C. provincial championships this month. Burnaby teenage champions Derek Chan and Victoria Barusic will both be looking to qualify for a shot at a Canadian title at the BCIT gym on Jan. 22 and 23. The opening day of competition will be mostly for novice competitors, while the final day will emphasize on the elite athletes, who will be vying for selection to the B.C. provincial team for the upcoming national championships in Quebec in March.

In recent years, Burnaby athletes have made a significant impact at the national level. Of the 50 to 60 athletes selected to provincial teams approximately 30 to 40 per cent of those have honed their karate skills in Burnaby, said B.C. coach Sandeep Gill. “We are extremely competitive in Burnaby,” said Gill, who was named Karate B.C.’s high performance coach of the year. “We have produced the athletes who can medal consistently and that’s very hard to do internationally.” Chan, a defending two-time national champion, and Barusic, both 16, will be looking ahead towards the Pan American junior championships in Brazil in September and the

world juniors later in the year in Malaysia. Andrea Maikawa, a grand champion winner last year, will also be looking to return to the nationals, where she won bronze medals in junior and open women’s kumite or sparring. Burnaby martial artist Matthew Ly won a pair of gold medals at last year’s national championships in Toronto. Cadence O’Neal and Kimberly Logan of Burnaby also medalled at the nats. The local talent currently practising karate in Burnaby is what Gill describes as “a big chunk of the medal haul.” ◗Karate Page 16

Kicking off a new year: The second half of the Four District youth soccer season got underway this weekend. Can spring be far behind?

Preseason pair of field lax favourites Kevin Crowley was recently named Lacrosse Magazine’s Division I preseason player of the year. The 6-4, Stony Brook University midfielder was made a preseason AllAmerican alongside New Westminster teammate Jordan McBride, who was chosen as an honourable mention on the same poll. Last season was a memorable one for Crowley. The Stony Brook senior is coming off an Enners Award season as the the nation’s top Div. I men’s field lacrosse player. The America East player of the year and Tewaaraton Award finalist recorded a single season-best 51 goals and 26 assists for Stony Brook. Barring the unforseen, Crowley should surpass the school’s all-time scoring record of 201 points. Crowley is currently the only Stony Brook player to be in the top five in both goals and assists. Stony Brook is currently ranked fourth overall in the nation behind Syracuse, Virginia and North Carolina. McBride, a two-time AllAmerican honourable mention, scored a career-best 48 goals last season. He leads Stony Brook in career goal scoring and is the only player in school history to score 40 or more goals in three straight seasons.

Draft: Back to drawing board ◗ continued from page 15

In response to that vote, the governors struck two committees in search of a solution - one geared towards seeing if the league could rejig a draft that would be either palatable to the BCLA membership or could operate without their support, and another group to discuss the merits of a graduating intermediate draft. Neither Weaver nor Thompson saw an open draft of intermediate players as a likely replacement – as most Jr. A clubs are highly protective of their own talent. “New West spends a lot of time and has excellent coaches teaching a similar system to its New West players. And lots of kids from the local area want a chance to play for their home team, and you’re going to open it

to a draft and tell them where they’ve got to play?” Which brings us to this weekend’s meeting. “We have to go back to the drawing board,” Thompson noted. “A midget draft makes the most sense… It just smacks of stupid when you allow that many teams to vote on a decision that really impacts just eight teams.” Weaver said some form of compromise may be necessary to get the 60 other directors from around B.C. to support a new midget selection process. “I think we just have to do a better job of selling the merits of the draft to the other (BCLA) members,” he noted. Dan Olson is the sports editor of the Coquitlam NOW.

CAREER COACH

Interview Tips, Part 2

A previous participant in one of my career workshops has had 13 interviews with a variety of employers in Vancouver over the past couple months. Here’s part 2 of what he’s learned from his experiences, in his own words: • Practice frequently asked interview questions like, Gregg Taylor "Tell me about yourself?" "What are your strengths and weaknesses?" "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" "How do you get along with difficult co-workers?" Most interviewers are not creative so they have asked me the same questions over and over. • Get ready to receive lots of rejections! You're a Sales Rep marketing yourself so it's just a numbers' game. Don't take it personally. It's just business and use your energies for your next interview. • There could be so many reasons why you didn't get the job offer. It could be because there was an internal candidate. The Hiring Manager wanted to hire his friend or brother, but they still had to go through the formal hiring process. The company thought they had enough money to add an employee, but they realized they didn't. Don't waste your time wondering if you said something wrong at the interview. It's possible that you did everything right, but still didn't get a job. • Although you may end up wasting lots of time doing company research and dressing up for an interview for nothing if you don't get a job, it's still interesting to meet new people (interviewers) and check out their work environment. You may run into them at a conference or somewhere in the future. You can strike a conversation to network with them if you enjoyed having an interview with them. • I got a call today for another interview on December 30th! I guess some companies are still conducting interviews during the Holiday season.” Job searching is a challenging job for anyone. If you need help identifying a career that’s worth all that effort, call my office. For help finding the work you love, call Transitions Career & Business Consultants, coordinators of The Transitions Program, a free 3 week career exploration program available to all unemployed people at 604434-1177 or 604-681-2774.

Refreshingly Clean Meticulously Maintained

Surrey Gardens Apartments for your new one bedroom home

From

Cancer June 21-July 22: The accent lies on relationships: partnerships, marriage, exciting prospects if single – and on opportunities, opposition, litigation, negotiation, relocation. Be patient if a legal matter gets in the way of a work project before Thursday: this barrier should fade by late month or March. Recent relationship intensity will lighten Saturday onward. This day starts a six-week period of investment in your career (via money, time, commitment, any of these). But avoid “pure investments” these six weeks – they might “burn cash.” Thursday/Friday bring social delights! Retreat, rest, plan Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Another 11 days of work and health drudgery. But this trend is relieved by a nice, buoyant romantic breeze. After Saturday, too, life becomes so exciting you’ll forget that work surrounds you! However, you probably have lots of unfinished chores “hanging fire” after a few weeks of neglect or misdirected efforts. Focus on those now, briskly clear away as much as you can. Don’t mix sex and romance before Thursday, nor creativity and “building,” nor investment and a gambling urge. Be ambitious, seek out higher-ups Thursday/Friday – luck accompanies you. Saturday brings social joys! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The emphasis lies on romance, creative urges, speculation and a love of “risk,” children’s affairs, pleasure and beauty. You’re riding a winning streak! But don’t expect a lot of cooperation from spouse, others, regarding any property, security or family notion you have. They’ll only join in if there is an ambitious angle for them. Don’t try to seal any deals before Thursday. Though two weeks remain in this romantic phase, you’ll need to make your bid for intimacy now, as Saturday ends a long “sexual magnetism” streak. (Another, life-changing one comes Nov. 11 to July 2012.)

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Remain ambitious. You see things wisely, your “executive decisions” are good. The barrier that appeared last week (refusal/ competition from another?) is not gone, but you’re moving beyond it. Retreat, rest and plan future actions Sunday. Your energy surges Monday to Wednesday – you’ll need it to run the gauntlet of barriers and problems that face you – give it a heroic try! It ends with a comforting message or thought. Chase money (or buy important items) Thursday/Friday – smooth luck accompanies you. Saturday brings talks, trips, casual friends – and starts six weeks of social joy! Taurus April 20-May 20: You’re making some of the most important contacts of this decade, over the last year and this month. Be sociable, say hello, join new groups and clubs. Strictly avoid legal hassles this week. Take care with “big money” Sunday to Wednesday – unrealistic hopes could lead you astray. Your energy, charisma and effectiveness soar Wednesday night through pre-dawn Saturday – a good time to socialize, join that new group, or whisper words of love to someone! Chase money, shop, sell items Saturday. Friday starts six weeks of possible friction with bosses, parents – be humble, not sassy! Gemini May 21-June 20: This week contains yes’s and no’s. The biggest “no” occurs Tuesday and Friday in investment, large money, power, clout and sexual areas. (Especially if these also involve legal, international, intellectual and cultural arenas.) The yes’s? In work, health, career Monday to Wednesday and Saturday: commitment equals eventual winning! If you have to choose between love, creativity and risk on one side and big money, clout, power, sexual magnetism on the other, choose love, creativity, risk: they control the environment right now. Your finances need change, but not expansion. You’re loved.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The main accent lies on family, home, security, real estate, gardening, nutrition, Mother Nature. This area faces significant (world-changing) transformations now to 2024. This week (and the past five) domestic conditions fight your partnership yearnings. E.g., you live in different cities, or your place is such a mess you fear to invite anyone home, or “Mommy” lives on the couch. However, Saturday eases this: you start six weeks of heightened romantic prospects and intensity. This leads to a February-June blooming of splendid relationship luck, and in turn to eight years of love excitement. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Paperwork, details, communications, errands – you have a lot of small chores to perform. You’ll do them easily. Your money luck improves. Buy a gift for a loved one. Sunday’s romantic. Tackle chores Monday to Wednesday – but avoid money topics, or chasing money. Relationships inspire, attract, open doors to success Wednesday night to Saturday pre-dawn. Be outgoing, eager, diplomatic – love could shine! Saturday brings mysteries, financial and sexual opportunities. This day begins six weeks of possible domestic friction – channel this energy into repairs or build a new job “base.” Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Continue to chase money. You might have to make some decisions or pronouncements about home, family, real estate – you’re still ultra-lucky here to Jan. 21. Buying a new home is favoured Jan. 9, 10 (before 2 p.m. PST) 13,14, 15, 19 (to 1:30 p.m.) 20 and 21. Money continues to flow beside you – bringing more, but prompting you to spend more. Sunday’s for home, family. Romance, creative projects, speculation call you Monday dawn to Wednesday eve. Tackle chores and health issues Thursday/Friday: you’ll succeed easily! Exciting meetings, opportunities Saturday.

1 MONTH FREE!

Jan. 9 - Jan. 16 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your energy, charisma, pizzazz and effectiveness ride high! Make contacts and satisfy your curiosity, especially Sunday. Get out all week, chase, begin important projects. Demand an end to unfair or stale situations Monday to Wednesday. Romance, creative surges, speculative urges and pleasure visit you Wednesday night to Saturday predawn. Tackle chores Saturday. This day, a long period of determination and sexual magnetism ends; this was a complex “gift,” for it also nudged you toward the end of many things. Most things existing before 2008 are ripe for ending. Soon – the new! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Continue to rest. Lie low, contemplate people and situations, and make plans. Be charitable. Deal with government agencies, institutions, corporate head offices. This week and next are your last “opening” for a while to make a major purchase or launch a lucky earnings vehicle. Sunday is particularly good for this. (But DON’T buy high-tech, electronics, etc. before Thursday.) Talks, trips and casual friends fill Monday-Wednesday. Deal with family, real estate Thursday/Friday – luck accompanies you. Starting Saturday, you’ll be active, magnetic and determined, for six weeks! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Bosses, parents and higher-ups treat you with new approval or affection for the rest of January. Take advantage – socialize, schmooze. Money often flows along “networks.” Your energy remains high Sunday. Be ambitious Monday to Wednesday, especially in the pursuit of money. (These are not really good purchasing days, though, nor for gaining the co-operation of your equals/peers.) Casual friends, siblings, communications and travel fill Thursday/Friday – all is smooth, easy! Settle into a “down home” weekend Saturday. This day starts six weeks of secret money plans or “charity money.” timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
