Police warn parents BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER

For the third time this year, the New Westminster school district and New Westminster Police Service are warning parents about a man lurking around local schools. On May 14, at 8:30 a.m., a young boy was walking to school at Lord Kelvin Elementary when he was approached by a male motorist on Hamilton Street. According to Sgt, Gary Weishaar, the boy was only one block from the school when the motorist drove up close to the boy and asked him if he wanted a ride to school. After the boy said “‘no”, the motorist drove off continuing eastbound on Hamilton Street. The boy reported the incident to school staff, who then called the police. The New Westminster police are looking for an early 1990s van, possibly a Dodge, with two doors that open at the rear, tinted windows and red curtains, racing type wheels, a broken tail light, and, a possible B.C. license plate containing the numbers 233-x9. The motorist is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 40 to 50 years old, who was wearing a black toque and had some facial hair. The incident comes on the heels of two other similar incidents around local schools. In mid-April, school district superintendent John Woudzia sent a letter to parents about an incident that occurred near Herbert Spencer Elementary, during the ◗Warning Page 4

Mom questions May Day funds BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

A Queensborough parent says money raised by school parent advisory councils would be better spent on educational materials than used to help fund May Day. “I get the tradition,” said Dana Babic, chair of the Queen Elizabeth Elementary parent advisory council. “(But) the money

that PACs raise should go toward enhancing students’ educational experience in school.” Babic learned about the cost of May Day when she started on with the parent council. That year marked the seventh time in 11 years that the May Queen came from that school. How it works is that every year, one girl from a New Westminster school is named

May Queen, and that school’s Grade 1 students are then the Royal Dancers. Those dancers traditionally wear special outfits – white shirts and navy pants for the boys and blue-and-white dresses for the girls. Last year, for 30 kids in Queensborough it cost about $1,500 for the Grade 1 outfits, Babic said. Along with the Grade 1 outfits, school ◗May Day Page 4

Parents will grade school trustees Parents are putting together their own report cards – complete with a grade – for school trustees. Former district parent council chair Margot Barton said she will provide the “report card” on trustee performance at the next board of education meeting. “The grade is based on attendance at parent council meetings,” Barton said. As well, the report cards will include comments from parents, she said. Members of school parent advisory councils, which represent schools, are giving the district parent advisory council feedback on trustee performance on their school’s trustee liaison. “We haven’t got all of the data from all of the schools,” Barton said last week. “Some people wanted to go back to confirm (their PACs grade).” The report cards are being done in response from a request that trustee Jim Goring made in the fall, Barton said. – By Niki Hope, staff reporter

Robber sought New Westminster police are looking for a man suspected in a violent robbery on Monday night. Just before 11 p.m., a 60year-old woman was walking home from work when a man approached her from behind in the 800 block of Fifth Street. The man grabbed the woman, knocking her to the ground and taking her cellphone. During the incident, the suspect dropped the aluminum baseball bat he had been carrying but did not use during the assault. The suspect started to walk away, but then decided to return to retrieve the bat. The woman started to yell for assistance, which caused the suspect to flee. The man is described as being 180 cm tall, 85 kilograms and wearing dark clothing and a hoodie, which was pulled over his head. The woman was not seriously injured in the attack. New Westminster police are continuing their investigation and asking anyone with information to contact them at 604-525-5411. – By Alfie Lau, staff reporter

Aiming for a ‘flagship fleet’ BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

New Westminster Fire and Rescue Service’s fleet could have a whole new look in the coming years. The department has approved a contract to Wholesale Fire and Rescue in Calgary for a 100-foot aerial platform truck that will be built by Pierce Manufacturing, a U.S.-based company that builds fire apparatus. The vehicle will replace the department’s existing ladder truck, the Quint. “It does have Quint capabilities. It’s a pumper, it’s a ladder truck, it has hoses,” said Brent Wisheart, deputy chief of operations. “It actually has a bucket on the end of it.” In 2009, city council approved the fire department’s request for an aerial platform unit. Chief Tim Armstrong said the fire department has been negotiating with two suppliers to see which one could offer the “best bang for the taxpayers’ buck” in terms of issues such as delivery time for the vehicle that will cost about $1.1 million. Delivery could have taken up to 14 months. “We are looking at November. That is why we chose this company,” Wisheart said about the delivery date. “The other bid was 14 months. Pierce has a big plant. They have one of the biggest plants in the world. They are able to do them a lot quicker.” The new vehicle will help establish a new

City council: Coming soon to a computer near you? BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

The City of New Westminster is seeking proposals from suppliers that could stream video from city council meetings. While Shaw Cable broadcasts city council’s regular council meetings, and is expected to continue doing so for the foreseeable future, the city is seeking recommendations/solutions about equipment needs to stream video from two meeting rooms at two separate times. Council holds committee of the whole meetings on Monday afternoons in a committee room at city hall, and then holds its regular council meetings those evenings in council chamber. The City of New Westminster has issued a request for proposals regarding the supply, installation and storage of a streaming video package.

Last year, city council directed staff to explore the cost and implications of videostreaming options. Staff sought information about the type of services available, and the implications on the city including the storage location for data, freedom of information and protection of privacy issues and information technology considerations. A staff report also stated that it’s desirable to consider the potential streaming of committee of the whole meetings, which are not televised. Staff noted that video streaming of committee of the whole meetings would supply the public with the fuller discussions that often occurs at those meeting. A staff report noted that video streaming of council meetings would mean people could access meeting videos at any time of the day or night. The city’s request for proposals closes on May 21.

May Day: Parent questions funding ◗ continued from page 1

parent councils also give about $500, each year, to cover the cost for their school’s May Queen representative. After her experience last year, Babic said there needs to be better resources for new parent council members. “We were given no contact information either from the school district or the May Day committee … no collateral of information to explain what it means,” she said. “Gosh, this has been going on for 140 years, so you would think there would be a document of protocols. “At the end of the day, I’m frustrated over the lack of document protocols,” Babic said. “They said, ‘This is what we are going to do, now you figure it out.’ I think it should be an expense line in the Hyack budget.” The May Day costs are “a drop in the bucket for Hyack,” she said. “It’s an incredible strain on PACs.” In the end, donors came through for Queen Elizabeth last year. Former MLA Chuck Puchmayr and current MLA Dawn Black stepped up and made personal donations. The Kiwanis Club also gave $1,000 to help pay for the outfits. After last year’s experience, Babic sent two letters to the May Day committee, outlining her concerns, but received no

response. Wayne Williamson is one of the members of May Day committee. He said the committee doesn’t have a policy manual for May Day because there is no set-instone dress code for the Grade 1 students. The outfits have varied from year to year, he said. “Some have had simple components,” said Williamson, who is the principal for the school district’s distributed learning program. What students wear is “at the discretion of the schools,” he said. “We don’t have a direct background in what the Grade 1s wear,” he said. “It’s never been discussed at our level.” The May Day committee is involved in organizing the May Day festivities. May Day is being held on May 26 this year – the 140th year that the event has been celebrated in the Royal City. The event costs the school district $10,000 a year. “We don’t disagree that education is the priority, and we don’t want to see people be hurt in any way, shape or form,” said Williamson. Williamson said there should be a subcommittee, with parents on board, to make suggestions about whether there should be a May Day dress code for Grade 1s, what it should be and how to best fund it.

clean-shaven, with dark, close-cropped hair, and approximately five feet 10 inches tall. He was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans with sunglasses placed on top of his head. The vehicle is described as a late model, off-white, four-door sedan with B.C. licence plates. And in January, the police and school district investigated an incidnet near Lord Tweedsmuir Elementary when a man

According to Weishaar, school staff created an information flyer for students to take home to their parents and the police service’s school liaison officer regularly conducts stranger awareness discussions in each of the district’s elementary schools.

Soccer spat a tale of two royal cities BY ANDREW FLEMING REPORTER

Some members of a local soccer league think it’s a royal pain that a soccer camp based in Guelph, Ont. is setting up shop nearby this summer using a similar name to their own. The newly arrived Royal Soccer Club, an organization that offers soccer-themed day camps to children aged five to 13, has been sending out advertising flyers to local schools, and it has the nonprofit Royal City Youth Soccer Club crying foul. “It’s the name overlap and the confusion that’s the problem,” said Royal City club manager Karen Murray. “I don’t want to put them down, but we don’t know yet if they are a good organization or a bad organization, and it is our

name that will be affected.” In Ontario, where they’ve been operating since 1993, and now Alberta as well, the day camp is actually called the “Royal City Soccer Camp,” and at first the group asked the Royal City Youth Soccer Club for permission to keep the word “city” in their name when they expanded their operation into B.C. “The request was rejected by the executive due to the possibility of confusion, and our opinion was made known to the B.C. registrar’s office,” said Murray. As it turns out, the oldest city in British Columbia isn’t the only municipality in Canada known as the Royal City. While New West earned its own august alias after being named by none other than Queen Victoria herself, the City of Guelph (founded 31 years earlier)

was specifically designed to resemble a European city centre and is named after the German ancestral family of the reigning monarch of the time, King George IV. “I don’t understand why they are so upset because we don’t even operate in New Westminster,” said spokesperson Jeff Byers. “In the interest of trying to keep good relations, we asked permission from them. We want to retain a similar sounding name, and this one is legally deemed different. It would have been much easier and less expensive for us to continue using our non-profit name of Royal City Soccer Club, however, we paid the expense to create a less confusing name.” While the newcomers won’t be operating within New West boundaries, the group will nonetheless be offering nearly a dozen summer

camps in neighbouring Burnaby, Richmond, Surrey, Coquitlam and Vancouver. And even though the Royal City Youth Soccer Club is a longstanding local league that only operates September to March, Murray says this is already causing a lot of unnecessary confusion for local residents. (The Record itself, for example, is guilty of accidentally sending an invoice to the Royal City club for a newspaper ad taken out by the Ontario organization.) “We are a club, which in my mind means something you join, while they are more of a daycare that offers soccer in the mornings and swimming in the afternoons,” she said. “We’ve put in a request with the registrar to have the name revoked. If they want to call themselves something like Royal Summer Club, we won’t have a problem.”

New group daycare proposed for West End A licensed group daycare with 50 spaces for children aged three to six years of age is proposed at the edge of the Brow of the Hill and West End neighbourhoods. The city has received an application to rezone 1408 Fifth Ave. to allow a daycare to open on a site adjacent to Riverside Park. The park will provide an outdoor play space for the centre, but a gymnasium is also planned for the facility

as it can be used during inclement weather. The site, which is currently vacant, requires a rezoning because it now only permits a maximum of eight child-care spaces. The applicant is proposing to rezone the site to a comprehensive development district, which is a zone created specifically for this property. A staff report notes that the building will be specifically

designed for a group daycare with an open classroom concept and ample natural lighting. Two classrooms will be located on the main floor, and a gymnasium will be located on the lower floor. “The facility will result in significant social and economic benefits to the city,” said a staff report. “It will assist children in all areas of child development, which will enhance school readiness and later

school success. It will also enable parents to work and to contribute to the local economy and will be a factor in the location and relocation decisions of families and businesses.” Having received first and second readings, council will hold a public hearing on the rezoning application on Monday, June 14 at 7:15 p.m. in council chambers. – By Theresa McManus

Premier toying with retirement? IN THE HOUSE



remier Gordon Campbell let the leadership genie out of the bottle last week and then quickly tried to put it back in – but I doubt he’s going to be successful. Campbell seemed to go out of his way in two separate media interviews – one with me, the other with my press gallery colleague Jim Beatty – to reference his advancing age as something he has to consider when deciding to run again in 2013. “To be candid about it, you know 2013 is a long way away, and I’m 62 years old now, so I’ll make decisions as I get closer to 2013,” Campbell told me, and he made a similar comment to Beatty the same day. To put this in context, it’s important to remember that Campbell rarely – if ever – says something publicly that he hasn’t thought through very carefully. Whether it’s a case of “staying on message” or simply being exceedingly careful, Campbell is not known for slips of the tongue. That’s why interviews (or media scrums) with Campbell rarely generate news on their


own. Ask him any question on any topic that you want, and his answer will stick to his script, not the questioner’s. Until now, whenever he’s been asked about his re-election plans, he has given the expected enthusiastic thumbs-up to the possibility. Any sign of equivocation would immediately invite talk about a leadership succession, and that’s just what his comments did this past week. So his comments about his age suddenly being a factor set off alarm bells in both the B.C. Liberal and NDP camps. No sooner had his comments run on our newscasts than my cellphone starting ringing like crazy as both sides wondered what I thought his comments indicated. First of all, I don’t think Campbell has made up his mind about his leadership intentions. The next election is still three years away, and while his reelection prospects look bleak indeed, there’s no rush to make a call this early in the mandate. However, I think he deliberately signalled to his own party that he is fully aware of the mess that has completely enveloped his government. And with that comes a realization of the obvious implication – that the pressure for a change at the top would become enormous – if the mess is still there as we approach the next election. It’s important that Campbell demonstrates that he is not in ◗Campbell Page 7

Dear Editor:

I am pleased to see in your publication that New Westminster is going ahead with the plans for a foreshore park. But I noted, with some dismay, that it seems to involve steel pilings and decking with no direct access to the river’s waters. There seems to be more concern about access to Columbia Street than the river. One of the reasons that I love living in New West is that the avenues don’t run east and west but take their orientation from the original Front Street that I assume was itself defined by the river. We are the river city; we have a great boardwalk at the Quay. We have a Fraser River interpretation centre where I recently attended a fine slide presentation. But when I took a five-year-old out to look at the river we could not go down to touch it.

When we walked along the boardwalk, we saw how logs and driftwood have been allowed to foul the one little bit of beach and grass that salmon fry need to transition to the ocean. Young salmon as well as young people need a margin on the river that is not defined by huge rocks and pilings. New Westminster needs a beach. I truly hope that a beach with river access, maybe even a place to launch a canoe, will be included in the new river park. Alan Haig-Brown, New Westminster

historical flavour and minimal number of ugly sun- and view-blocking highrises. If I wanted skyscrapers, I’d move to the West End. I don’t understand how the council knows that our city’s population is growing – more refugees on the way? I do understand that this “density bonus” system appears little more than a plan to rake in more property taxes from an increase in the number of condos and buildings. Perhaps the city’s focus should be on better fiscal policies and the promotion of business development. M.R. Olson, New Westminster

Take out pesky pedestrians

Dear Editor:

Re: Traffic does not need ‘calming,’ Letters to the editor, The Record, May 12. So the fellow who wrote in last Wednesday thinks he should have the unimpeded right to mow down people crossing the street, does he? Wow! I bet he drives at the posted speed limit as he motors to the beer store in his jackedup 400-hp diesel monster truck, too. Why, with a vehicle like that he could just drive over the curb bulges to make a right turn. Maybe he’d be lucky enough to take out one or two pesky pedestrians while doing it!

Council needs reality check Dear Editor:

New Westminster city council has invited public comment on their pay and potential raises and benefits. So here is my

stream of consciousness on that subject. World news: ◗ Last-ditch bid: $650 billion EU emergency fund ◗ Bank crunch deepens; default swaps reach records ◗ EU tensions simmer over Greek pension cuts ◗ “America has good reason to worry” ◗ Moody’s: U.S. debt shock may hit as soon as 2013 ◗ Stock market time bomb? ◗ Spain slashes civil service pay by five per cent ◗ Global debt crisis expanding to Spain, Portugal and Italy British Columbia news: ◗ B.C. government announces provincial debt six times greater than stated ◗ Canadians’ household debt reaches record levels ◗ B.C. Hydro has announced its rates will probably go up by 29 per cent ◗ Mortgage rates expected to rise July 1 ◗ Total B.C. Olympic debt still unknown New Westminster news: ◗ Council considers giving themselves another pay raise ◗ Ten per cent bonus allowance in lieu of pensions considered Not only has my property tax, as has everyone else’s, increased this year but also water/sewer/garbage fees have increased by over 60 per cent in the last few years. The recession of the last few years has resulted in lower incomes for many businesses and individuals. Governments are in a uniquely privileged position to award themselves pay raises, unlike the rest of society. It would appear that there may be a serious disconnect by council from the interests of local taxpayers.

denial and that he grasps the magnitude of his party’s problems. If he were to pretend that everything was fine, his credibility would suffer and the mutterings within his own party about needing a new leader would become increasingly louder. By opening the door ever so slightly to eventually stepping down, Campbell has bought himself some time. He’s nipped in the bud, for now anyways, any attempt to stir the leadership pot behind his back. Nevertheless, his comments have reminded his party that it may well have to confront a potentially messy leadership

battle down the road. The usual names have surfaced – Mike de Jong, Rich Coleman, Kevin Falcon, even Blair Lekstrom – when talk turns to a possible successor (from outside caucus, two names are being bandied about: Carole Taylor and Dianne Watts). In an odd way, the attention paid to Campbell’s musings also reminded New Democrats of their own challenge on that front. Although the party is cruising along with a double-digit lead in the polls over the B.C. Liberals, the whispers of doubts about Carole James’ leadership abilities simply won’t go away.

low profile these days, preferring to let the antiHST petition led by Bill Vander Zalm (her almost co-leader these days) take all the limelight (at last, the latest joke goes, the NDP finally has a leader with charisma). I’ve written here before that James and Campbell will not square off against each other in 2013. The betting is that it will be Campbell who leaves first, but don’t underestimate the New Democrats’ ability to feast upon their own leaders, even in good times.

New manager set to promote arts in the city

The city’s new manager of arts and cultural development will focus his efforts on six key issues in the Royal City. Greg Magirescu, who started work in the newly created position in April, will focus on support and leadership, community arts development, awareness and promotions, gathering and performance spaces, public art, and events and festivals.The position was one of the major recommendations of the city’s arts strategy that was completed in 2008. “Many of the recommendations arising out of the 1996 arts and cultural policy report have not been put into motion,” said a city report. “With the hiring of the manager, arts and cultural development, in response to the completion of the 2008 arts strategy, the implementation plan can now be developed and deliverables measured.”

Magirescu’s responsibilities will include fostering working partnerships in the arts between artists, community groups, businesses, schools, municipal departments and other agencies and organizations; cultivating regional, provincial, national and international arts and cultural initiatives; and working with city staff, consultants and developers in the planning and development of existing and new arts and cultural facilities, neighbourhood improvement projects and public art so the arts can be incorporated into civic initiatives.

City waives dry grad cost

Celebrating the conclusion of high school isn’t something that comes cheap. City council has agreed to waive the costs of Queensborough Community Centre for

the New Westminster Secondary School 2010 dry grad ceremonies. The cost of renting the facility for the duration of the celebration would be $1,516. “Due to the economy and other factors, donations have decreased this year over previous years,” said a report to council. “The parent committee recognized the need to find an alternate location that was affordable and where they could put the donated funds toward activities and refreshments. The New Westminster school board does not financially support this event.” In 2009, the school held its event at Science World, where the rental cost was $9,000. A group of about 10 parents has been planning the event, which gets donations from the parent advisory committee, the teachers union, the B.C. Liquor Control Board and other contributions. – Theresa McManus

Grade 6 late French immersion student Maria Constanineuscu placed second with her topic, Rick Hansen, and Grade 7 francophone student Marc Massicotte placed first with his topic, Leonardo da Vinci. There were 285 students from British Columbia and the Yukon participating in the provincials this year, which was held on May 8 at the Simon Fraser University campus in Surrey. Concours d’art oratoire is an important part of the New Westminster school district’s curriculum for grades 6 to 12 French immersion students, local Canadian Parents for French representative Heidi Clarkson wrote in an e-mail. All students compete at the classroom level – classroom winners then compete in the districts and, if they place first, move on to the provincial level. The B.C./Yukon branch of Canadian Parents for French has been hosting the provincial event for 27 years. The aims of the contest are to stimulate the interest of students learning French, to improve

Facing ghosts of the past ◗P13 Massey Society doles out grants ◗P15

Local students inspired by singing Two Royal City voice students qualify for B.C. performing arts festival BY JULIE MACLELLAN REPORTER

On first encounter, she’s a soft-spoken kid who ducks her head shyly and isn’t entirely sure about the idea of singing on video. But once she takes her place next to the piano and opens her mouth, Sarah Quinn transforms into a poised and mature performer, with a rich and warm voice that belies her slight frame. Sarah, 14, is one of two New Westminster voice students who have qualified for the Performing Arts B.C. 2010 festival, set for May 23 to 27 in Duncan. She and 17-year-old Krista Gibbard both earned places in the festival based on their winning performances at the Coquitlam District Music Festival in March. Both are studying with Lois Weninger, a voice and piano teacher who runs a music studio in her Massey Heights home. “These are really wonderful students,” Weninger says, with a smile that reveals just how proud she is of their accomplishment. “They deserve where they’re going.” Both girls will compete with a concert group of pieces. Sarah’s includes I Will Make You Brooches, based on a poem by Robert Lois Stevenson; the English folk song When Love Is Kind; and Paolo Tosti’s Van gli effluvi de le rose. Her favourite, she says, is When Love Is Kind – because, Weninger points out with a smile, “It’s got lots of attitude.” She’ll also compete in the Vocal Variety category with a selection from Gilbert and Sullivan’s Mikado, The Sun Whose Rays. Krista will perform Handel’s Oh! Had I Jubal’s Lyre, Debussy’s Fleur des Blés and Mozart’s En Chloe. She loves the Mozart piece, she says, which she’s been working on for about a year. The Debussy is newer to her, but it’s captured her imagination. “It’s so beautiful. It transports you when you sing it,” she says, adding that’s obviously a good thing for competition. “The more you like a piece, the better you sing it.” The upcoming festival will be Krista’s second trip to the provincials – she first qualified in 2007, when it was held in Penticton, and she says she was more nervous than she is this time around. “I’ve learned a bit about it. You sort of know what to expect,” she explains. “I know now how to control the nerves a little bit, to be prepared.” Sarah is heading to the provincial festival for the first time. “I’m very excited!” she says with a huge smile, adding she doesn’t get too nervous. “Not as much as I used to. I’ve progressed a lot.”

Larry Wright/THE RECORD

For the love of singing: Voice teacher Lois Weninger, left, with students Krista Gibbard, 17, and Sarah Quinn, 14. The two will be competing in the Performing Arts B.C. festival next week in Duncan. “It’s more than just singing the notes. It’s The progress she has made in just two years of voice lessons is evident in listen- about interpreting a piece of art,” she says.

She is also a skilled visual artist and recently won one of seven full entrance scholarships to study art at Emily Carr University next year. But both say there’s something special about singing. “Since I was very small, I used to be dancing and singing around the house all the time,” Sarah says with a grin. She’s sung with the B.C. Girls’ Choir and the Vancouver Bach Children’s Chorus and has appeared as a soloist with the Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir. She loved choral singing but, she says, she finds it rewarding to sing on her own. “I like being able to not have to depend on everyone else and be able to do your own thing,” she says. “I just like to be able to express myself while singing and using my instrument.” Krista, too, says singing is a uniquely personal musical experience. “It’s the only instrument that’s really in you,” she says. “Singing can be done no matter where you are or what you’re doing.”

Singers: New West students qualify for B.C. festival one of the things she loves about the voice as an instrument. “It’s a lot more alive than most people think. The voice is always changing.” Weninger notes that the girls’ ability to interpret music will continue to grow as they develop into adulthood. “Vocal maturity is very tied to personal maturity,” Weninger notes, pointing out that many songs explore themes such as love, loss and death – subjects that require some life experience to truly comprehend. “You have to have loved deeply and lost to sing some of these pieces.” For this moment, Weninger sees her job as

And, she says, it taps into something deep within yourself. “I’m not particularly religious, but, for me, it’s as close as you can get to a spiritual experience,” she says. Weninger notes that, as a teacher, it’s important to guide singers to treat their voices with care since pushing the voice too far, too soon, can damage it for the future. The voice is constantly developing, she says, noting that Krista in particular is at an age where she’s seeing her voice begin to expand. “I feel it changing,” Krista agrees, adding that’s

Krista interjects with a grin. For Weninger, being a good teacher stems in part from having good students. “These are the students who apply what you tell them,” she says simply. And the smile on her face as she accompanies them at the piano pretty much says the rest.

Under the surface – it’s all pretty complicated HEALTHWISE



n the practice of medicine, physicians must keep an open mind. Though a patient’s presenting symptoms and physical signs may point to the common or obvious, we maintain a differential diagnosis. Narrowing our focus too early will limit the scope of our vision. We will miss important clues and possibly the correct diagnosis. Astute and experienced physicians will heed their intuition and listen to that feeling of unease when something doesn’t fit. Privy to my patients’ stories and secrets, struggles and dreams, I’ve learned not to make quick generalizations about others. A complete and complex personality with a network of relationships lies just

beneath the surface. But much of the time, most people skim the surface. Beneath the surface lies the back story. It can be a story of abandoned dreams, trauma and loss. It can be a vision of courage and hope. Most of us don’t share this side of ourselves, and many do not acknowledge its impact on our present lives. How much of your sense of self is tied to the past? Do the voices of your childhood speak to you still? Your emotional environment can make the difference between depression and happiness, anxiety and confidence, anger and peace. How we are treated at school, at work, in the playground and in our homes influences how we feel and think about ourselves. If the words we hear each day tell us we are not good enough or deserving of happiness, or if we are overwhelmed by stress and negativity, we will not find peace.

Massey Society gives out grants release. The Massey Helps program has two application deadlines, one on March 31 and one on Sept. 30 of each year. In each period, two applicants are selected. The program is determined by a committee of the board of directors of the Massey Theatre Society. The grants are intended to encourage new artistic ventures and make possible community events that face financial challenges or that may not already be taking place in the theatre. Massey Helps has detailed criteria against which applicants are weighted. The first priority is given to artistic projects, second to New Westminster-based groups, third to youth-oriented projects. The next application deadline is Sept. 30, for events planned during the period between Jan. 1 and June 30, 2011. Two more recipients from that round will be announced this winter, provided the Massey Theatre Society’s lease on the theatre is extended.

The Massey Theatre Society recently announced which arts groups will receive the Massey Helps Access Program grants. City Stage New West and the Royal City Musical Theatre will get the grants, which provide free use of the Massey Theatre. The grants will go toward City Stage New West’s remounting of the original New Westminster musical, Stump City Stories, which will be performed for school audiences in September. The Royal City Musical Theatre will use the grant for its annual Winter Gala Fundraiser. “These two local organizations selected in this round exemplify the intentions of this program. They are hard-working, ambitious arts organizations that make New Westminster proud. If we can assist RCMT in continuing to provide the fantastic productions they offer, and City Stage in reaching out to children and youth, it is an important thing for the Massey Theatre Society to do,” Massey Theatre executive director Jessica Schneider said in a press

Have a look inside city hall BY DEBRA NELSON CONTRIBUTOR

As the Hyack Festival approaches, everyone looks forward to the many activities that take place every year – fireworks, the Anvil Battery salute, May Day and the Hyack Parade. One of the long-established highlights is the annual open house at city hall. Following the Hyack Parade on Saturday, May 29, city hall will again open its doors from 1 to 3:30 p.m. All city departments will be on hand, and this is an excellent chance to meet some of the staff, ask questions, see what’s in the works and be entertained. This year’s theme is Keeping Our City Green. The library will be there with crafts available for kids as well as a display of books on environmental awareness. You can’t get any greener than paperless books. Find out how to download audio books and e-books – all free with your library card.

Pop into the engineering department to learn about the city’s environmental programs and enter to win a rain barrel or composter. Kids can learn about recycling while playing the recycling relay game. Kids can also play a green trivia game and try out the 3-D modelling computer program in the finance and information technology department. They can also try the human resources department’s “What Will I Be When I Grow Up” game. More fun has been organized by the parks, culture and recreation department; make a craft, have your face painted, jump on the trampoline and watch the antics of CoCo the Clown. One of the highlights isgetting the chance to sit in the mayor’s chair, so bring your camera to have your picture taken. Then take a picture of the Olympic torch and some of the local torch bearers. Of course, there will be lots of equipment: a fire engine, the police command unit, engineering trucks and an appearance by the electric Zamboni.

Hyack Parade set for May 29 The popular Hyack International Parade will take to New Westminster streets on Saturday, May 29. The annual parade attracts more than 4,000 participants and 130 entries from B.C. and the U.S. The Vancouver Police Motorcycle Drill Team takes to the streets at 10:15 a.m., readying the crowds for the

main event that starts at 11 a.m. The parade begins at Eighth Avenue and Sixth Street, travels down Sixth Street to Queens Avenue, turns left at Queens Avenue and travels to First Street. It then turns left on First Street, hangs a right on Third Avenue and ends in Queen’s Park. The Record is holding its second annual Best

Decorated Chair contest at the parade. People wanting to participate in the contest can decorate their chair and set it up on Sixth Street between Third Avenue and St. George Street on the morning of the parade. Prizes include a $250 gift certificate to Royal City Centre, a $100 gift certificate to La Rustica and a pizza party for 10 at Gino’s.

Cherishing our parishes OUR PAST



ver the past week St. Peter’s Catholic Church has been celebrating the 150th anniversary of the arrival of four Catholic missionaries, Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI), directed to establish a mission on the B.C. mainland in 1860. This was known as St. Charles Mission and the local parish was St. Peter’s. We were honoured to be asked to participate in the anniversary with a slide program of local sites linked to the parish history and a short presentation during the opening event of a week of celebration. The story of this church, its parishioners, and its links to the local Catholic community over the past 150 years includes a number of buildings that form part of our Royal City history. There were three church buildings named St. Peter’s: the original small building on Columbia Street near the foot of

Hand ball: New Westminster Hyack prop forward Matthew Raines goes into contact in Division 2 semifinal high school rugby action against Burnaby South last week.

Div. 2 rugby final today BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR

Nolan Shelley scored two tries and booted six of seven converts to lift the Burnaby South Rebels into the district Division 2 AAA rugby final. Shelley, a Grade 12 standoff half, led the undefeated Rebels past the New Westminster Hyacks 45-7 in a semifinal match at South Wednesday. Trent Shelley, Ian Vickars, Jerome Braithwaite and Taichi Kashima also scored single five-point tries for South. Brent Fletcher tallied the lone Hyack try, scoring off a Hyack set piece late in the opening period. “We’re learning. We’ve definitely made a huge improvement over last year,” said New Westminster co-coach Adam Martin, who praised his team’s

level of conditioning. “We’ve only won one game, but we’ve won the second half of every game.” The Rebels led the Hyacks 33-7 at the interval, but were held to just two tries by New Westminster, who were a bit unlucky to not come away with a score in the second half. “It’s all good fun, that’s why I play the game,” said Shelley, who kept the South back line on the attack throughout the match. Moscrop defeated Burnaby Central 41-0 in the other semifinal last week. The matchup will pit the offensive-minded Rebels against the controlled forward game of the Moscrop Panthers. South will meet league runner-up Moscrop in the district final today (Wednesday) at 4 p.m.

Five local pro lacrosse players shared in a firstever Championship Trophy with the Washington Stealth on Sunday. The Stealth, which had moved the franchise to the Pacific Northwest from San Jose last season, defeated the Toronto Rock 15-11 in a thrilling fourth-quarter comeback in the championship final of the National Lacrosse League. Burnaby school teacher Curtis Hodgson, Burnaby Laker veteran Cam Sedgwick, New Westminster Salmonbellies Peter Morgan and goalies Tyler Richards and Matt Roik were all part of the Stealth’s championship run. Hodgson was picked up by the Salmonbellies in a draft-day trade with the Victoria Shamrocks earlier this year. Trailing 7-5 at halftime and by as many as four goals late in the third frame, Morgan started the comeback with a goal from the left-side crease with just 12 seconds remaining in the period. Washington caught a break after the ensuing faceoff and with the Rock goalie on the bench for an extra attacker, Eric Martin tallied into an empty net with little time left on the clock. That led to a eight-goal run by the Stealth, including a seven-goal third period that completely swung the momentum of the game. Rhys Duch, who led the Stealth with three goals and eight assists in the championship game and topped the playoffs with 11 markers and 14 helpers tied the score with his second and third tallies in the early going. Game MVP Lewis Ratcliff, the only player on the Washington roster to have won a previous pro playoff title, put the Stealth in the lead 11-10 with his fourth of the game. ◗NLL Page 24

five finalists for the presigious Tewaaraton Award given to the most outstanding player in Div. I lacrosse each season. Former New Westminster junior Salmonbellie teammate Curtis Dickson, the Colonial Athletic Association player of the year, was also among those shortlisted for the Tewaaraton prize. Both Crowley and Dickson, who is in his senior year at the University of Delaware, were named first team All-Americans. In Delaware’s opening round match at the NCAA championships, Dickson, the nation’s leading scorer was held scoreless in a 14-13 loss to No. 4 North Carolina. The Tewaaraton will be awarded in a ceremony at the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian on June 3.

The Western Lacrosse Association first overall draft pick, Kevin Crowley of New Westminster, scored three times to help Stony Brook University go through to the second round at the NCAA field lacrosse championships on May 15. Crowley, who has scored at least three goals in seven of his last eight games, helped the eighth-ranked Stony Brook Seawolves to a 9-7 win over the University of Denver in opening round action at the 16-team Divisioin I championship tournament. The hat trick goal gave the Stony Brook junior 49 tallies this season, just one shy of the school’s all-time record of 50 tallies in a single season currently held by alumnus Kevin Pall.

High ball: New Westminster’s Katie Davies, in red, lets a shot go in novice girls’ lacrosse at Burnaby Lake Arena on Sunday.

Governor to have jersey retired The junior A New Westminster Salmonbellies lacrosse club will officially retire the No. 6 jersey of team governor Walt Weaver on June 1. The ceremony will take place during the first intermission of the B.C. junior A match between New Westminster and the Coquitlam Adanacs at Queen’s Park Arena. Weaver played five seasons for the junior A Salmonbellies from 1968 to 1972, including three as team captain.

Weaver won back-to-back scoring championships in 1970 and in ‘71, while finishing runner-up in 1972. Weaver tallied 122 points in 1970, but his best goal output was in 1969, when he potted a career-high 56 goals in the old Inter-City league. Weaver also shared in a Minto Cup championship in 1971 with the Richmond Roadrunners as a post-season pickup. The current junior Salmonbellies club president ranks second in all-time club scoring with 419 total points.

The New Westminster Salmonbellies had to scratch and claw for a single point in Sunday’s 88 draw with the Victoria Shamrocks. The junior Salmonbellies scored two late goals a minute part from Jeff Sproule and Tyler Digby to take a brief 8-7 lead, but the advantage was shortlived. Less than a minute later, Victoria’s Karsen Leung tied the contest, with the goalie on the bench for a sixth attacker, with his second goal of the game and just 28 seconds left to play. New Westminster got behind early, allowing the visitors a 3-0 advantage before Mark Negrin got the first of his three goals late in the first period. The ’Rocks led 4-1 after the first period. New Westminster closed

the deficit to a single goal on Negrin’s second and a cheeky behind-the-back tally from T.J. Cowx. It was at that point in the game that Travis Irving stepped in to make his mark. The 6-4, second-year defender tattooed the Shamrocks’ Tyler Matheson in an entertaining dustup that in many ways mirrored the team’s struggle in the game. “(Victoria) kind of had momentum. They weren’t playing that bad. It seemed our team needed a spark, so I just did what I do,” said Irving. “In the beginning, we were flat and not playing our game. But as it progressed, we stepped up our game and matched theirs. I think we can play better.” And as a team, the junior ’Bellies did. Matt MacGrotty scored a nice goal cutting to the

goal to shave the lead to 5-4 in the middle frame. But it was not until midway through the final period that New Westminster made its move. Negrin potted his hattrick goal on a power play. Then Sproule tied the game for the first time, finishing off a high pass from Digby at the left crease. Digby put the home team in front on a spin move in front. Salmonbellies goalie Frank Scigliano stopped 38 shots, including nine in overtime to salvage a single point for New West. “Once we stepped it up near the end, I thought we were doing what we wanted to do,” Irving added. “At least we got a point out of it. It showed a lot of heart.” New Westminster played Delta at Queen’s Park Arena Tuesday (after The Record deadlines).

NLL: A career-high 50 saves for goalie Sedgwick scored the game-winning goal, with a long, hard shot from right in front that found its way through the legs of Rock keeper Bob Watson at 8:53 of the final period. Richards was stellar in goal when he

had to be, making a career-high 50 saves, including 18 in the opening period. Hodgson, who led the playoffs in shooting percentage, assisted on Mike Grimes’ empty-net marker in the final moments that put the finishing touch on Washington’s win.

New Westminster SALMONBELLIES Season Opener

May 20, 2010

7:45 PM

Queens Park Arena


New BELLIES season could be BEST ever for fans! by Carly Rigby

There is no doubt that hosting what some people call the most exciting Mann Cup in history last September did a lot to draw attention back to lacrosse in New Westminster. With the historic Queens Park Arena at capacity nearly every night during the seven game series, the attention of everyone in the city and far beyond was captured and all eyes were on the Senior Salmonbellies. The Bellies staff has worked hard in the offseason to ensure that the same spirit will be carried over into the 2010 season. With a franchise record of nearly 200 season tickets already sold and a generous following on the team’s Facebook and Twitter pages, the indication is that Bellies lacrosse is alive and well in the Royal City. As home to the most historic club in the country, there is no question that the love and support for the team is secure as they enter their 122nd season. After successful endeavours last year, the team has expanded their plan to host theme nights at home games throughout the season.

On June 3, the Bellies will hold the second Seats for Soldiers Night when they meet the Victoria Shamrocks for the first time at home. In partnership with the Royal Westminster Regiment, the event will showcase military displays and bands. That night, all Armed Forces, Legion Members, Veterans, Cadets and their families will get in free and partial proceeds will go to support the Military Family Resource Centre. Fans are being encouraged to wear uniforms, Regimental blazers or red to support our troops, while the Bellies will take the floor in their new camouflage jerseys, made just for this event. With all that the community has done to support the Bellies over the years, the club felt it was time to give back. In appreciation of two of the biggest employers in New Westminster, planned events will take place this season. June 24, when the Bellies host the Nanaimo Timbermen, will be the second annual Kruger Products night and when Maple Ridge comes to town on July 8, the team will honour employees from the City of New Westminster for the first time. For these events, every person employed by the organization being spotlighted will receive a free ticket to the game.

Not all of the changes are being publicized. Richardson has been hard at work bringing some exciting surprises to WLA lacrosse fans, things that have only been seen in major league sports arenas until now. “We really feel our product on the floor is very good, so we’re now working hard with our sponsors and suppliers to add value to the whole entertainment experience for our fans. We have some big plans for special give-away nights, we bought a tshirt launcher and we have a couple other surprises in store for the Salmonbellies faithful.”

Queens Park Arena will open its doors on Thursday, May 20 for the Bellies 2010 home opener when they will face the Langley Thunder, the team they eliminated in the first round of the 2009 WLA play-offs. Season tickets are still available for purchase through the team’s website: Fans can keep on top of team news by joining the Senior Salmonbellies Facebook group or following @Salmonbellies on Twitter.

New Westminster SALMONBELLIES back to the show in the future, that process has to continue. The other side is emotionally; both series were different, terrific, if not hard, experiences and everything we went through needs to be absorbed and used as positive motivation for the future.”

Forget silver; can a dark cloud’s lining ever turn to GOLD? by Carly Rigby By all accounts the 2009 Mann Cup Championship was one of the best ever played. Fans, players, and coaches – young and old – all agreed the seven game marathon that included four games decided in overtime was best final most could remember, with many saying it was the best series they have ever seen. The big winner was the game of lacrosse. The Mann Cup drew the biggest mainland crowds seen in ages and historic Queen’s Park Arena provided the perfect atmosphere befitting the highest level of Canadian Lacrosse. The winner of the seven game classic was the visiting Brampton Excelsiors, who defeated the home town New Westminster Salmonbellies four games to three. To the victors go the spoils, the gold medal and one of the most fabled trophies in Canadian sport; to the vanquished goes heartbreak and ghosts of what could have been. The question that begs to be asked is: What now of the vanquished? To have a dream shattered in seven games stings. To be defeated in the seventh game in overtime after leading throughout much of the contest adds salt to the open wound. To have each of the team’s four losses occur in overtime conjures up images akin to water-boarding in a Central-American prison. So where do the Salmonbellies go from here? And how do they approach the upcoming 2010 season? First things first: put the past the in perspective, according to head coach Bob Salt. “What a series and what fabulous lacrosse,” mused Salt. “Best I have ever been involved or seen. We lost to Brampton the year before (2008 Mann Cup) in Brampton, four straight. Last September, against an even more loaded line-up, we took them to the absolute brink but just couldn’t tip the cow over. As I told our players, be disappointed but be very proud of your accomplishment. Once in a generation two teams are lucky enough to be involved in something that special. In the grand scheme of things, it really is what competitive sports is all about.” The next step: what to bring forward into the future. For former coach, Troy Poelzer, the answer is as simple in its structure as it can be difficult in its implementation.

Motivation shouldn’t be a problem one would think. But not so fast, says the newest coaching addition, Chris Gill, who was on the floor as a player at the time of the series. “Not motivation per se, but directing that motivation in the best possible way and focusing on the right goals is sometimes a challenge. Every year is a brand new year and any success we may have down the road depends on going through the proper process starting at pre-season. There are six other very good teams in our league (the WLA) alone. Now that the next season is underway, we need to get back to what has made us successful the past few seasons and looking after business from day one.” “That means taking nothing for granted, looking after all things we control the right way, and aggressively building ourselves up to the point we give our club every chance to succeed,” added coach and assistant GM, Ken Thomas. “There are no short cuts at this level of lacrosse and sitting here in May and wistfully thinking about revenge in September would be a fatal mistake. We have to continue the cycle of focused work, learning from experience, and get back to the working process of getting better throughout the season, every season. If, when the playoff cards fall, we are lucky to be still be standing come late August, we will starting thinking about September then.” Perhaps the last word should aptly come from PresidentandGMDan

Richardson: “We really spent a long, and I believe healthy, amount of time deconstructing what we liked and didn’t like about last season and working on how to improve; not too much different than what we go through every year as a management and coaching staff. By all measures, we had an extremely successful year on and off the floor in terms reaching almost every one of our goals heading into the season. Coming so close to our ultimate goal, the Mann Cup, on such a great stage and in such a heart breaking way magnifies but doesn’t alter what we do every year. And this defines what this group is about – striving to get better every single year.” Great results, appropriately so, should never be easy to accomplish. If success is defined by the journey one takes and the willingness to risk attaining great results, the New Westminster Salmonbellies have already grasped their golden lining. And they fully intend on using it to risk reaching their ultimate goal.

“Once you get over the sense of loss in such a hard fought and incredibly close battle, just like anything in life, you need turn everything you can into a positive going forward. It’s a combination of a couple of things. One is learning from the game situations that happened throughout entire series – that’s the mental side. We proved we had that ability from 2008 to 2009, and if we are lucky enough to get
