Student dies – counsellors ready to help BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

Larry Wright/THE RECORD

Tragedy: Investigators from the New Westminster Police Service study the scene of a fatal accident Monday morning involving an 11-year-old boy.

School counsellors from throughout the New Westminster school district were deployed to École Glenbrook Middle School Tuesday morning, after the tragic death of an 11-year-old student from the school. The district learned about the fatal accident on Monday, superintendent John Woudzia told The Record. By Tuesday morning, the district put into place a critical instance response, which includes offering grief counselling to students and staff at the school, he said. “I think we’ve got a very comprehensive level of support,” Woudzia said. Along with school counsellors, the New Westminster Police Service’s victim assistance unit and New Westminster Fire and Rescue Services staff were also on hand to help the school district deal with the tragedy. ◗Tragedy Page 4

City MP wants longer EI sick benefits BY JANAYA FULLER-EVANS REPORTER jfuller-evans@royalcityrecord.com

A private members bill to extend employment insurance sickness benefits from 15 to 52 weeks was introduced by the New Democrat MP for New WestminsterCoquitlam, Fin Donnelly, in Ottawa on Monday. Donnelly held a press conference, after announcing the bill, with the NDP critic for employment insurance Yvon Godin, MP for Acadie-Bathurst, and cancer survivors Natalie Thomas and Marie-Hélène Dubé. Dubé has collected more than 200,000

signatures on two separate petitions to extend EI sickness benefits. The bill would extend benefits for illness, injury and quarantine, he said in a followup phone interview. People who are battling cancer and other chronic or long-term diseases are often starting or in the middle of treatment at 15 weeks, Donnelly explained. He became aware of the issue when Thomas, a Coquitlam resident, came to speak with him soon after he was elected last November. She had to turn to friends and family when her benefits ran out as she was completing treatment, he said.

Now that the bill has been introduced, it will have to go to second and third reading before it can be passed. The next step is raising awareness, Donnelly said. “We’re really highlighting this issue, that it is only there for 15 weeks.” Donnelly’s predecessor, Dawn Black, also introduced a private members bill regarding EI sickness benefits after meeting Thomas in July of 2006. Bill C-316 was introduced in March 2007, and reintroduced in October 2007, but did not make it to second reading. Thomas, who has lived in Coquitlam for 35 years, was diagnosed with breast

Mayor supports campaign spending limits BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Mayor Wayne Wright has had no trouble raising money to run an election campaign but supports restrictions on election spending. The local government elections task force has submitted a report and recommendations to the provincial government and the Union of B.C. Municipalities about

municipal elections. It recommended caps on the amount of money politicians spend on their campaigns, but it didn’t state what those expense limits should be. Using the spending limits that are in place in Ontario, the Vancouver Sun calculated how Metro Vancouver candidates would fare in term of overall spending. The Sun found that only four of the 353 local candidates in the 2008 municipal election would have been over the limit,

including Wright. Wright said he has no trouble supporting spending limits because everyone would be bound by the same requirements. He said candidates need to be able to spend enough money to put up signs and promote themselves. “For me personally, we have the money to do it. We were telling people what we were doing,” he said. “I think it could have been less. You have it – you want to make

sure you cover all your bases.” Wright spent $49,249 on his 2008 municipal campaign, compared to $57,201 in 2005 and $23,909 in 2002. In the final days of the last election campaign, his advertising stated that he didn’t need money but needed volunteers. “I didn’t spend all mine. We put some in the bank,” he said of nearly $10,000 ◗Wright Page 8

months. But the campaign went quiet when Black became the NDP MLA for New Westminster, and Thomas suffered from health problems last year. But when Donnelly became the new MP last fall, Thomas took up the campaign again. “I am determined that people out there get the help they need, she said. Cancer is difficult enough without the financial strain, Thomas added. “When you go through cancer, you’re first fighting the fear of your own mortality, and secondly, fighting the treatment,” she explained, adding to be without an income at that time adds tremendously to the fear and stress. Maternity benefits are available for a maximum of 15 weeks, but the beneficiary can apply for parental benefits for a maximum of 35 weeks in addition to that, as well. Regular EI benefits last from 19 to a maximum of 50 weeks. According to a press release from the federal NDP, one-third of all sickness claims are exhausted before the beneficiary can return to work.

◗ EMERGENCY PLANNING

Residents need to be prepared for crisis BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

The Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on New York City and Hurricane Katrina are some of the crises that help city officials plan for potential emergencies in New Westminster. Dave Jones, the city’s manager of emergency planning, said best practices are developed because of responses to emergencies in other areas. Because the Lower Mainland hasn’t had any major disasters of its own, it relies on those experiences for expertise. “We need to look at other places that have suffered through experience and analyze our own preparedness and response capability of what they learned,” he said. Fire Chief Tim Armstrong said people on the east coast of the United States are well aware of the need to board their homes and stockpile food when hurricane season approaches because they’ve had to do it time and time again. Other than some windstorms and a heavy snow load, Armstrong said B.C.’s West Coast hasn’t experienced any catastrophic events. “It’s a good thing,” he said. “In the event it happens, you could find a lot of people have a lackadaisical attitude, ‘It is never going to happen to us.’ ” Acting police inspector Phil Eastwood said people should know the risks, make a plan and prepare a kit. Because we live in a relatively uneventful part of the world, he said there may be a tendency for people to be complacent and think Batman will swoop in and take care of them in the event of an emergency. “It is not necessarily going to be that way,” he said. “They need to take initiative and be prepared.” City officials continue to plan how to tackle emergencies on an ongoing basis, but they urge residents and businesses to ensure they’re doing their part. “We want you to have some plan, not no plan,” Jones said. “It’s to remove assumptions that the cal-

disclosures. New Westminster has been pretty good on ensuring transparency – unlike Burnaby, where journalists had to go down to city hall and pore over documents (no copying allowed) to find out who spent what during the last campaign. We believe that will change by the next election, but it didn’t give us a sense that Burnaby was keen on “transparency” at all. And, as for the recommendation for four-year terms. Much as we all may grumble here about all the pre-election

politicking, we think four years is too long (it’s currently three-year terms). The task force suggested that it takes four years to get political leaders’ visions in place. Well, they have a point. But one more year isn’t going to make all that much difference, and if the voters like the vision they elected last time around, they can always get out and make sure to support it again. Voters may already appear disinterested, so there’s no reason to make elections even more rare events – even if it means saving a couple of bucks.

future energy projects (mostly small-scale run-ofriver or wind turbine projects) will become increasingly controversial, especially in the communities near them. As well, the price we pay for energy use also looms as a hotbutton issue for the future. The HST will eventually be part of everyday life, but your monthly B.C. Hydro bill will serve as a constant reminder of the shifting sands of our energy system. One of the most controversial aspects of Bill 17, the Clean Energy Act, is that it removes B.C.

In fact, it was the NDP government of the late 1990s that also undermined the commission through such politically motivated actions as cabinet-ordered B.C. Hydro rate freezes. While still Opposition leader, Gordon Campbell insisted his government would restore the political independence of the utilities commission. But that independence was short-lived, and when the commission rejected the government’s energy plan last year the writing was on the wall. The B.C.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR New West not so great ◗ continued from page 6

city hall and council, presents a less than complete report, leaving out that New Westminster ranked 132nd for crime rate, 126th for violent crime rate, and 153rd for crime severity rate is just such an example. Obviously New Westminster, especially downtown, is not a very “family friendly” place. The newspaper quotes the mayor with “We’re coming up from nowhere,” and “We’ll do even better next year.” Sounds like his same old promises of the past eight years: “more livable” and “family friendly.” However, the newspaper report and the mayor seem to want us to believe that he is responsible for low provincial income tax (ranked first), low provincial sales tax (ranked third), transit (ranked third) and culture (ranked fifth). If the ranking report is adjusted for those high-ranking items that the mayor and city hall aren’t responsible for, then New Westminster’s overall ranking falls near the middle of the pack, which obviously is quite disappointing considering the location, history etc. of New Westminster. Not a job well done. It is quite disappointing to see how little, if any, progress New Westminster has made. Probably New Westminster would be even further down the ranking list if the relatively high New Westminster municipal taxes were taken into consideration. Furthermore, if there was a ranking for democratic municipal elections etc., New Westminster, again, would probably fall

even further down the list of cities. Perhaps the too often favourable bias of the local newspapers has something to do with all the advertising revenue they receive from New Westminster city hall. It would be interesting to know who the top 10 customers of the local newspapers are. Just as New Westminster city hall and councillors often seem to get favourable reporting treatment from the local newspapers, the current provincial and federal governments usually do not, even the cartoons are sometimes mean and nasty. Surely, local newspapers still have an obligation for fair, accurate and balanced reporting.

to establish a flourishing private energy industry in this province that will develop so-called “clean” power and export it for profit outside the province. Critics claim this model will have an impact on B.C. Hydro’s rates, boosting them upward. Then there’s the argument about the inevitable environmental footprint left by energy projects, which will be significant no matter what the size of the facility. Adding spice to this debate is the role of First Nations bands, some of which are business partners of private energy companies because they see these projects as helping to lift their members

The danger of McBride

Dear Editor:

How do we protect our children from McBride street? A New Westminster family and an 11year-old boy just paid the ultimate price. I see trucks and cars running lights on a daily basis and speeding like McBride is a freeway with a few inconvenient lights that you can avoid if you step on the gas when the light turns orange. Do we ban all school age children from using the intersection and force them to use the overpass only? God bless the little boy and his family, and lets put a visible reminder on McBride to show commuters what happens when you speed on McBride and do not respect pedestrians.

Energy: Policy will have big impact ◗ continued from page 6

out of poverty. It’s hard to predict how all this is going to go. For example, for all the claims that the B.C. Liberals have some sort of secret plan to sell our rivers to private interests, there is evidence that the relationship between the government and independent power producers may be fracturing, at least a little. A number of companies that failed to win approval from B.C. Hydro’s clean power call are upset about what they consider to be an unclear bidding process. And one company, along with the First Nations band that is involved in its proposed power project, has even filed a lawsuit against the government because Environment Minister

Barry Penner recently told the legislature he had no intention of altering provincial park boundaries to accommodate the project, even though the company claims the government had earlier agreed to do precisely that. Sure, the HST continues to be a fevered topic of debate and denunciation. And it’s not like the tax will be out of the headlines anytime soon. But the energy debate is just getting started. It may be over for now inside the legislature, but make no mistake: Energy policy, not taxes, is going to have a bigger and longer lasting impact on what our politicians are arguing about the most.

Resident wants birds protected BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Roslyn Cassells fears that contractors removed bushes from the former Saint Mary’s Hospital site that was home to nesting birds. Cassells noticed work taking place at the future school site on Thursday and Friday. “It was alive with all those little birds. They are in and out, in and out, eating,” she told The Record Friday. “It is like a ghost town today.” Contractors stopped clearing the site after Cassells complained to the district. “It has ceased until further notice,” superintendent John Woudzia said Monday. According to Woudzia, the City of New Westminster informed the school district that the site was violating the

city’s unsightly premises and street traffic bylaws. The school district hired a contractor to clear some of the site’s overgrowth so it could be brought into compliance with city bylaws. Cassells spent four hours digging through a dumpster at the site Thursday night, searching for nests with baby birds. “I was trying to save baby birds,” she said. “The parents were trying to go in there, they were very upset which means the babies were there.” Cassells questioned why the bushes had to be removed during nesting season. Having seen various songbirds and nests at the site, she was trying to determine exactly what species were nesting there and which may be protected species. Cassells said she’d seen warbler nests at the site. She’s spotted wrens, vireos, sparrows, finches and other

species at the downtown site but said some may have been feeding but not nesting at the site. “They could work around them,” she said. “Why couldn’t they wait until babies were hatched and survived?” Last year, Cassells raised concerns about pruning done to hedges at New Westminster Museum and Archives because the bushes provided a habitat for raccoons. She believes the city and the school board need to consider protection of wildlife on their sites. Woudzia said the clearing of the site has nothing to do with site preparation for a new school but is strictly to comply with city bylaws. The school district will talk to the project manager about how to handle these sorts of environmental concerns when the school project gets underway.

Development firm eyeing the Royal City A major development firm in the Philippines may be interested in doing work in the Royal City. Senior representatives of Ayala Land Inc. recently met with city officials, including Mayor Wayne Wright, to discuss opportunities that may exist in the city. The meeting followed three meetings between the city and the company’s representative in Canada.

“They are an international company,” Wright said. “It is time for them to be more involved in Canada. They are so strong in the Philippines. “We gave them a complete overview of the city,” Wright said. “We showed them the different areas and what is going in each area. “They went down to the river, they went to Braid Street, Sapperton, the Larco

lands, the civic centre site,” Wright said. “They went up to the mall. I think they even saw 22nd Street (SkyTrain station).” Ayala Land’s website states that it is the most well-established real estate developer in the Philippines. “They do all kinds of development,” Wright said. “It is malls, condos. It is whatever shoe fits.”

City wants to conclude Chinese reconciliation

Councillor wants process wrapped up by summer BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

The City of New Westminster wants to wrap up its Chinese reconciliation process sooner rather than later. City staff has researched council minutes from 1860 to 1926 and found that the city discriminated against the Chinese community in the early years in regards to land and buildings, city regulations, employment opportunities and other areas. Having researched the city’s treatment of Chinese citizens in the past, council directed staff to embark on consultation regarding appropriate steps toward reconciliation. Coun. Bill Harper put forward a motion that the city completes the process before summer. “It has really dragged on,” he said. “We gave direction to wrap this up.” Harper worries that if the process doesn’t conclude this month, it will be delayed until September. “It’s not complicated,” he said. “It’s something I think we can do more quickly.” Coun. Bob Osterman said he’s spoken to some members of the Chinese community about the process being undertaken by the city. “They are extremely appreciative of what we have done,” he said. “The relationship we have with them now is more like partners. It is not antagonistic.” Mayor Wayne Wright believes the city will have enough input to wrap up the process by summer. “We have done what we are supposed to do,” he said. “There is work to be done in the city.” More than 80 people attended a March 31 public meeting to offer input into the reconciliation process.

Jessie Awards

I

t’s always nice to see success with a Royal City connection, and that’s just what I found when I was perusing the list of nominees for the annual Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards. The Jessies honour the best in Vancouver theatre in a whole host of categories encompassing both large and small productions. Among the nominees this year is Queen Lear – the Western Gold Theatre production directed by New Westminster’s own Colleen Winton, profiled in The Record in March. It earned two nominations in the small theatre categories – one for Outstanding Set Design (Pam Johnson) and and one for Outstanding Sound Design or Original Composition (Peggy Lee). Kudos to all involved. The awards will be handed out at a gala ceremony on June 21. See www.jessies.ca for the whole list of nominees. And, please, let me know if you know of any other Royal City connections. I don’t want to miss out on congratulating our local talent.

Krista wins again

In other local success stories, chalk up yet another for Krista Gibbard, the young singer who was featured (along with her cohort Sarah Quinn) in a story in The Record on May 19. I interviewed the two voice students – they study with Lois Weninger – before they set off for the Performing Arts B.C. 2010 festival, which they qualified for after their stellar performances at the Coquitlam festival. As it turns out, after the provincial competitions held in Duncan, Krista emerged on top yet again – capturing top honours in intermediate classical voice. Congratulations yet again!

Fresh off her win at the B.C. festival, Fiona Drewbrook is building towards a professional dance career BY JULIE MACLELLAN REPORTER jmaclellan@royalcityrecord.com

Fiona Drewbrook is home for lunch after a morning of classes at New Westminster Secondary School, but her day has only just begun. The 16-year-old Grade 11 student is taking time out to talk to The Record on what’s just an ordinary weekday in her busy world. She’s soon on her way to the Richmond Academy of Dance for the rest of her day – a dance class in the afternoon, followed by a technique class and rehearsals into the evening, winding up around 7:30 p.m. Sometime after that, she’ll also have schoolwork to do – homework from her morning classes and from the correspondence courses she’s taking to make up for the time she misses in dance training during the afternoons. “Fitting homework in is hard,” she admits with a cheerful laugh. But she wouldn’t have it any other way. Balancing a busy schedule is just part of life for a dancer who’s serious about pursuing a professional career. That’s the goal Fiona has her sights set on – and right now, she’s riding a wave of success that makes that goal look closer than ever before. She’s just returned home from Vancouver Island, where she captured first place in senior ballet in the Performing Arts B.C. 2010 festival. She won her way there after qualifying at the Surrey Festival of Dance, and she admits she wasn’t sure what to expect from her first trip to the provincial festival.

Dancer: Royal City teen working towards a professional future ◗ continued from page 11

“The elegance of it, the poise and the attitude of it.” And, she says simply, it’s beautiful. “It looks really beautiful when you watch it, but when you actually work on all the small details, it’s really difficult,” she says. “Perfecting it is really difficult.” It’s an art she’s been perfecting since she was four. She first started dance at the Centennial Community Centre, when her older sister was dancing and her mom signed Fiona up for a class too. She then studied at the Kirkwood Academy of Dance before moving to the Richmond Academy. Fiona credits her teachers, Annette Jakubowski and ballet mistress Suzanne Ouellette, for instilling in her an understanding of proper technique and the level of training required to achieve a top-calibre level of performance. But, she says, she’s learned about far more than just dance. “From dance in general I’ve learned lots of responsibility, punctuality, commitment,” she says, adding that transfers into her life outside of dance. “It’s carried over into everything else that I do.” And she’s quick to note that she’s received plenty of support for her dancing – from the teachers at New Westminster Secondary and from her family, who, she

says, have always offered moral support and encouragement, along with the years of shuttling her to lessons and rehearsals. For Fiona, all the effort will be worth it when she achieves her goal: to dance in a professional company. Her absolute dream job, she says, would be to dance with American Ballet Theatre or the New York City Ballet. “I’m open to many different options,” she says. She knows that next year, after high school graduation, she’ll be setting herself up for as many auditions as she can. The thought is nerve-racking, she confesses, but she adds she’s starting to get a bit used to auditioning. And she’s keeping an open mind about what her next step will be – perhaps heading straight into the professional world, if she can, or perhaps pursuing a bachelor of fine arts degree in dance. But for now, it’s time to head on again – to dance class and rehearsal, so she’s all set for her performance this weekend. Fiona will be onstage with her Richmond Academy of Dance cohorts at the Gateway Theatre in Richmond, Friday and Saturday, June 11 and 12. Call the school at 604-278-7816 or see the website at www.richmond academyofdance.com for further information.

On the ball

A new book that’s hot

off the presses examines a part of New Westminster’s baseball history. Ken McIntosh cowrote The New Westminster Frasers Baseball Club with fellow New Westminster resident Rod Drown. The self-published book is about a pro-baseball team that was based in New Westminster in the 1970s. Ken recently accompanied wife/city councillor Betty McIntosh to the Federation of Canadian Municipalities convention in Toronto. After the convention wrapped up, the couple drove about 1,500 kilometres in three days. “We rented a car and drove from Toronto to Cooperstown, New York to the (National) Baseball Hall of Fame,” Betty said.

“He is a member and went in and did research on his next book.” The couple also visited St. Mary’s, Ont., which is home to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame “They have a special cabinet for Justin Morneau,” Betty said. “It is very nice. We spent a few minutes talking about our hometown boy.” Ken was one of three people celebrating a birthday at the Federation of Canadian Municipalities gala dinner. The 1,800 or so attendees sang Happy Birthday to the trio. While Betty was immersed in federation business, Ken was celebrating his 61st birthday afternoon the way any baseball fan would do. “He went to a baseball

game,” she said, meaning a Blue Jays’ game against the Baltmiore Orioles. “For Ken, it was wonderful.”

Exploring Boundary Bay

The New Westminster Historical Society will be examining Boundary Bay at its next meeting. The society next meets on Wednesday, June 16 at 7:30 p.m. at the auditorium of the New Westminster Public Library. Author Anne Murray will talk about a part of the Fraser River delta and present her recent book, Tracing Our Past – A Heritage Guide To Boundary Bay. A press release notes that Boundary Bay is a part of

the Lower Mainland that many people drive past or through, but Murray, through the enlightening stories, informative anecdotes and beautiful images contained in her book, clearly opens up the area to a fresh natural and heritage appraisal. The program is free, and everyone is welcome – no need to pre-register. Do you have an item for Around Town? Send ideas to tmcmanus@royalcityrecord. com.

BC Lions give back to the community A

Lions Pride is a new program designed for youth in grades 8 to 12 and combines school visits by BC Lions players with the creation of a flag football program. Photo courtesy BC Lions

For tickets, check out www.bclions.com or call 604-589-ROAR.

s the BC Lions get set to tackle another season at this year’s training camp in Kamloops, many players have wrapped up another round of community and school appearances. These off-season endeavours are a big part of the Lions’ community relations program, and players and staff log hundreds of hours each year speaking to students, making special appearances and spreading positive messages to young people. Lions centre and Lower Mainland native Dean Valli says participating in these programs can be as fulfilling as putting points on the board at a game. “I’ve been involved with several of the club’s community programs for a few years now and it’s a great feeling to know you’re setting a positive example for kids while having fun at the same time!” Some of the Lions programs include: Lions in the House The Lions in the House program is designed specifically for students in grades 8 to 12 and emphasizes the importance of positive life skills development for students and their schools. This year, Lions defensive assistant Barron Miles and centre Angus Reid traveled to secondary schools and engaged students in an interactive assembly with physical activity and motivational speeches on fitness and nutrition, bullying, continuing education, and maintaining a positive attitude. In all, Lions visited 30 schools across the Lower Mainland, speaking to more than 3,000 students as part of the program. Lions Pride This new addition to the BC Lions school program was launched this year. In partnership with the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General, the BC Lions are inspiring youth to be active, make positive choices and excel. Lions Pride is designed for youth in grades 8 to 12 and combines school visits with the creation of a flag football program. BC Lions Terasen Gas Energy Champions This program is designed specifically for children in

kindergarten through Grade 7, emphasizing the importance of environmental responsibility and being an “Energy Champion.” In 2010, the BC Lions Terasen Gas Energy Champions program has visited 75 elementary schools throughout the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, the Interior and northern B.C. Read, Write & Roar The 2010 season marks the ninth year of this BC Lions’ literacy program in partnership with Literacy BC, the Vancouver Public Library, the Vancouver School Board and participating elementary schools. The program reached 15 school districts and more than 25,000 elementary school students, stressing the importance of literacy through a fun and captivating journal. Courage for Kids In 2009, the BC Lions continued their partnership with United Way of the Lower Mainland in support of this program. More than 6,000 children were given the opportunity to attend a BC Lions home game during the season thanks to the generosity of Courage For Kids sponsors and the United Way of the Lower Mainland. Every Yard Counts In 2010, the BC Lions will continue to partner with BC Children’s Hospital for the Every Yard Counts program. This initiative provides an opportunity for children to attend a BC Lions home game, allowing them to get away from their treatment schedules and the everyday battles they fight. While the children get an opportunity to experience the excitement and emotion of a CFL game, they also have a chance to meet some of the BC Lions players. The interactions have far-reaching effects by creating feelings of hope and happiness, making it an enjoyable and rewarding program for everyone involved. For more information on any of these BC Lions programs, please contact the Lions’ director of community relations, Jamie Taras, at jtaras@bclions.com.

Teen fundraising for trip BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

Fourteen-year-old Sadie DeCoste is looking for a little help, so that she can help others. This summer, the Glenbrook Middle schooler is taking the trip of a lifetime – a 20-day visit to the Masai Mara in Kenya. She will be among a group of Canadian teens helping to build a school for children. “I’m not nervous yet, but I probably will be when it comes closer,” said Sadie. “I’ve never travelled alone, but I’m kind of an outgoing person.” Sadie has raised $3,200 of the $5,300 she needs for the trip. She is holding a car wash and dinner to help her come up with the rest. The car wash is on June 13 at the Esso station on Sixth Street and Eighth Avenue, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. She’s hosting a dinner at Simba’s Grill on Edmonds Street in Burnaby on June 22 at 6 p.m. “It’s going to be a huge feast of delicious food,” Sadie said. The money she’s raised, so far, has been collected from her Christmas and birthday money, babysitting, personal donors, bake sales and T-shirt sales. The

The Record • Wednesday, June 9, 2010 • A21

Seniors lead active lives at age 90 BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Several members of the Sapperton Pensioners Association may have reached the age of 90 but show no signs of slowing down. The Sapperton Pensioners Association recently held its annual birthday party to celebrate members who have reached the 90-year milestone or will do so this year. The event, which included lunch, raffles and, of course, birthday cake, honoured Olive Brass, Vera Fairman, Al and Lily Guterres, Margaret Klein, George Pearson, Bill Ward and Joanna Zabinsky. Zabinsky enjoys attending the association’s monthly meetings and annual birthday parties. “I know a lot of people,” she said. “I am always interested to find out what they are doing.” Born at Royal Columbian Hospital, Zabinsky lived in her Simpson Street home for 81 years before moving uptown. Her new home is close to Century House. “I have a lot of activities at Century House,” she said. “There is so much going on there.” George Pearson, who turned 91 on June 1, still attends the association’s events even though he now lives by Lougheed Town Centre.

“It’s wonderful,” he said about the birthday luncheon. “There’s nothing I didn’t like about it.” Bill Ward, 90, continues to stay active by square dancing and round dancing. He’s been square dancing for 50 years. “It’s good,” he said. “It makes you think, too. The caller tells you what to do. You have to know your figures. You don’t know what is coming.” Margaret Klein, 92, keeps active in many ways. Once a week, she heads to the grocery store and shops for one of the seniors’ bureau programs. “I am active. People say, does it make any difference that you are 90?’ I feel no different than when I was 75,” she said. A Christian, Klein believes she was blessed with good health, saying she doesn’t do anything special to stay healthy. “I eat and sleep well,” she said. “What more can I do?” Al and Lily Guterres met and married in Hong Kong 56 years ago, and moved to Canada in 1969. Although they live in North Burnaby, they’ve been attending the Sapperton Pensioners Association’s gatherings for about 10 years, after a friend told them of the group. “Everybody is smiling and happy. It’s a good club. Everything is mostly friendly,” said Al, who is 96.

Pensioners association welcomes new members

Newcomers are always welcome to join the Sapperton Pensioners Association. “New members, we’d love them,” said Al Lambert, treasurer of the association’s board of directors. “We are there for seniors, not just Sapperton

seniors.” The group provides fellowship through its annual over-90s luncheon, traditional Christmas dinner and other events. “We have games day every Tuesday. We have carpet bowling. The ladies play Reno Keno. It’s a board

game,” he said. “Some of the guys play cards.” The association’s mission statement is to provide services to seniors. Events are held yearlong, including the summer. “There’s always lots of chance to talk together,” Lambert said. “They love

it.” Members also meet for a monthly executive meeting and a monthly general meeting. In the past the association offered many excursions, but those have had to be scaled back because of funding cuts. “We are there for the

seniors,” Lambert said. “We are even trying to gets some more trips, if we can find transportation that is cheap.” The Sapperton Pensioners Association owns its building at 318 Keary St. and has had to invest quite a bit of money

District juniors shine at B.C. high school track meet

BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

If there were awards for the junior athletes, the St. Thomas More Knights might have swept the majority of them. The Burnaby independent made a strong case for 2012, winning five events, including the boys’ 4x100 metre relay. STM athletes Giovani Trasolini of Burnaby and Sebastian Adugalski were involved in their own personal dual for junior athlete of the meet, both winning three gold medals, including the sprint relay. The difference came down to the 100m sprint, where the 6-3 Trasolini outlegged his STM teammate for third place by four one-hundredths of a second in a bronze-medal time of 11.80. Adugalski won the long jump in a new Grade 9 record of 6.17m, beating St. Patrick’s James Benalco’s 2004 mark of 6.07m. Adulgalski also took gold in the 100-m hurdles ahead of fourthplace Ahmad Nizamani of Burnaby Central and New Wesminster’s Mahailo Stefanovic in seventh. Nizamani also had a fifth-place long jump of 5.59m in the meet. Trasolini easily won gold in the 200m, romping home in a winning time of 24.06, while Knight teammate Ben Castres placed fourth in the field of eight. Trasolini also won the high jump with a leap of 1.75m. The STM boys teamed with Castres and Jordan McKenzie to win

Junior ’Bellies Knights disappoint in Kamloops remain unbeaten

◗ AA GIRLS SOCCER

BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

The St. Thomas More Knights were an unlucky 12th at the B.C. high school AA girls’ Subway Cup final in Kamloops. The Knights drew their first two games in the championship tournament and then dropped a crucial 2-0 decision to eventual consolation winner St. Michael’s University, relegating STM to the thirdteam pool in the four-tier tournament placement format after group play. STM lost its final match of the tourney 3-2 to Caledonia after a narrow 2-1 defeat to host Sa-Hali in the late Friday crossover matchup. Sarah Hughes and Monika Podgorski both scored goals in the loss to Caledonia. Marisa DiLorenzo had the lone goal for the Knights against Sa-Hali. “As a team we were disappointed with our effort and results,” said STM head coach Carlo Zavarise. Burnsview defeated Carihi High of Campbell River 2-0 in the AA championship final Saturday. Notre Dame finished in

sixth place following a 2-0 loss to Brocklehurst. Last week, STM won the B.C. AA golf championship banner for a third straight time. Micheal Belle and Alan Tolusso finished second and third, respectively, in individual scoring. Belle shot a two-day total of 142, while Tolusso was two shots back at 144. The Knights, including Lucas Gatto, Josh Punzo and Kevin Vigna, had a combinedteamsix-over-par score of 582, overwhelming the field by more than 40 strokes. Earlier, Alan, a Grade 9 student at STM, also took part, along with his sister Eleni Tolusso, in the recent AA B.C. high school tennis provincial championships at the Burnaby Tennis Club. The Knights tennis team was seeded 10th overall going into the championships and finished in fifth place overall, behind defending three-time AA champion Collingwood and runners-up Brentwood, Shawnigan Lake and SaHali of Kamloops. It was the first time in 25 years that STM had qualified for the provincials.

On the ball: Grade 11 St. Thomas More Collegiate athlete Eleni Tolusso, seen left in zone qualifying match against Alpha Secondary, went to the AA provincials with the Knights in soccer and tennis, where the team finished fifth overall.

The New Westminster Salmonbellies paid back the Shamrocks for an earlier 88 draw at home, downing the Victoria junior club 9-6 on the Island Saturday. Tyler Digby scored his second straight four-goal game, setting up T.J. Cowx with the game-winning tally to mark the end of a six-goal middle frame at Bear Mountain Arena. Digby, who got the visitors on the scoreboard after Victoria had jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the opening period, helped New Westminster take the lead with his second of the game at 3:21 of the middle frame. But the Shamrocks countered, replying with two of their own to knot the score at 5-5 midway through the match. Digby, with his hat trick goal, and Cowx put the Salmonbellies in the lead for good later in the period. Brandon Mulligan made 30 stops in the New Westminster goal to register the win. Cowx and Daniel McQuade both finished the

game with a goal and three helpers. A day earlier in Port Coquitlam, New Westminster handed the junior Saints a 12-8 defeat. “I like the back-toback (games),” said Salmonbellies’ head coach Dan Perreault. “We’ll be facing that sometime along the way.” Digby again got things rolling, scoring twice and assisting on Leif Mydske’s game-opener for a 3-2 advantage in the first period. New Westminster scored seven times in the second period to give starter Frank Scigliano some comfort in goal. Digby finished with a game-high seven points, while Mydske added a hat trick in a four-point outing. Mark Negrin tallied his team-high 20th goal of the season, while adding four helpers. Jeff Sproule, who leads the junior ‘Bellies in scoring, also added four assists. The Salmonbellies played Burnaby at Queen’s Park Arena Tuesday (after Record deadlines). New Westminster’s next game is on Thursday in Nanaimo.

NEW SPORTS TECHNOLOGY

New golf club’s secret metal may hit too far on some par-4’s. Coating on surface derived from armor-piercing metal used by military. Largest head size allowed. BRAMPTON, ON– A small company in the U.S. has taken the largest head allowed under the Rules of Golf, and souped it up with a coating derived from a once-secret metal developed by the Department of Defense to pierce enemy armor. The coating hits with a force twice as hard as steel, 70% harder than titanium. With that much punch a good golfer by Mike Butler could turn some par-4’s into par-3’s. That’s not what officials had in mind when they set a 460 cc size limit on clubs. Golf officials were trying to restrict distance, and they still are. There is talk of new rules requiring manufacturers to tone down their balls. Good luck. Manufacturers will always push the envelope, and the maker of this club is no exception. Look what it’s done. First, it chooses a club head that goes right to size limit, then it slips in under the radar with a coating that comes from the tips of torpedoes and armor-piercing shells. Nothing wrong here, unless the club provokes a new rule. And it might. Here’s how it performed when a pro and other golfers tested it. 20-40 yards farther One golfer hit seven out of eight shots 20 yards farther with the new club. “I wish I hadn’t just spent $400.00 on mine,” he said. A ten-handicapper, who also plays a $400.00 driver, hit the new club 40 yards farther. He said,

“I’m not doing anything. It seems to swing itself.” Another golfer who had just bought a 460 cc driver (they can cost $400.00 to $500.00) wanted to get his money back. A husky golfer who swings at about 120 MPH actually cracked a ball with it. Another golfer hit five of his seven drives from even to ten yards past shots he hit with his own driver, a $449.00 club. A former PGA pro who played it in California said he had to club-down to a 3-wood on several par-4’s. A 21-time long-ball champion in the U. S. said of the 500 drivers he’s used over twenty years, this one hit farther with less effort than any of them. One golfer begged the company to let him take it with him for a week in California. A low-handicapper curved several shots around imaginary dog legs 220 yards out. The club’s huge sweet spot gave him more room to work the ball from toe to heel. I asked a Director of the company that developed the club, called the Controller® 460, for comments. He lit up. 70% harder than titanium “This is the driver of all time! Tell me how anything can beat this: A driver with a maxed out head and sweet spot, a coating derived from a metal used by the military to pierce enemy armor – steel and titanium are too weak to do that – a clubface twice as hard as steel, 70% harder than titanium, a 45 1/2 inch, 69-gram high-fiber, graphite shaft that cracks through the air like a bull whip. What’s left! Look at those shots! That guy over there will shoot scratch golf. “We’re giving golfers 30 days to play it. If their scores don’t drop big time, they can send it back and we’ll refund its price promptly.” Big drivers hit big shots. That’s why there’s a 460 cc limit. A 460 cc driver with a 70% kicker hits really big shots. The company lets you play the Controller® 460

◗ SR A LACROSSE

Lazy ’Bellies getting by with less in recent split BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

The New Westminster Salmonbellies got back on a winning track after suffering their first defeat of the Western Lacrosse Association season. The Salmonbellies held on for a 9-8 win against the Adanacs in Coquitlam Saturday after falling 76 at home to the visiting Victoria Shamrocks on Thursday. Although just two points out of first place with a current record of 5-1-0, New Westminster is showing a laziness in its game that has not gone unnoticed by those behind the bench. “It has to be a concern,” said Salmonbellies head coach Bob Salt, following the loss to Victoria. “I don’t think Victoria can play much better that that, but we played the sh#ts. … I don’t think (our players) listened to one part of the game plan tonight.” What’s been happening to the ‘Bellies is a habitual pendulum swing after a promising first 20 minutes.

It occurred again in Queen’s Park Arena after the Salmonbellies, clad in camouflage jerseys to honour Seat for Soldiers night, looked sharp with righthander Craig Conn back in the lineup for the first time since the team’s playoff run in 2008. But Victoria responded with four straight goals in the middle period, three coming in the opening two minutes, to put New West back in the position of playing catchup. Although the ‘Bellies had been able to salvage a win at home with two previous wins in overtime, Thursday was not a lucky third time. Dean Hill scored his second of the final frame to ensure the ‘Rocks hang on to the WLA lead for at least another week. In Coquitlam, New Westminster took the opening period lead 4-0, including the first of two on the night from Conn. This time, the ’Bellies maintained their advantage in the second period, but were outscored 4-1 in the

final frame, only managing to hang on with Conn’s eventual game-winner at 18:20 of the third. “We’re having a lot of fun in the dressing room, but we’re not ready to play,” Salt added after Thursday’s loss. “That’s what happens when they come from that other league. … They come back with some awful habits.” But Salt chooses to look on the bright side and reasons, correctly, that the Salmonbellies’ current 5-1 record could easily be far worse had things not gone their way it has in recent games. “Langley gave the win to us (in the home opener) and Nanaimo lets us get back in the game (the following week). Take away those two wins and it’s 23.” Add Saturday’s one-goal victory over Coquitlam to the equation and New Westminster’s fighting for a playoff position. Next up is Maple Ridge at Queen’s Park Arena on Thursday. Game time is 7:45 p.m.

Another New Westminster Hyack, junior high jumper Manisha Kandola, finished tied for sixth in her specialty at 1.55m. “I was pretty close. I’m not really a morning jumper. It was too early,” said Kandola. St. Thomas More’s Pamela Ho placed eighth in the high jump despite injuries at the same 1.55m height. Ali Nizamani of Central finished seventh in the boys’ 400-m hurdles. Gurdas Panesar of New Westminster posted a personal-best seventh place in the boys’ discus, throwing 40.58m. Panesar also placed in the shot put and javelin for the Hyacks and then showed his appreciation to his high school coach by helping out the student body ground crew clean up after the last of his three events. “Ms. McNulty has done a lot for us, so I feel I owe her something,” Panesar said.

2010 Street Festival Sunday, June 13, 2010 11:00 am - 4:00 p.m.

Sapperton Day Street Festival Background The 2010 Sapperton Day Street Festival is a non-profit community event put together by the Sapperton Business Association and its partners. This is its 8th consecutive year after returning from a short hiatus. Sapperton Days has been around since the early 1970’s. Last year the event donated $8100 to the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation. To date the Sapperton Day Street Festival has donated, with the help of our partners, over $25,000.

Campaigns to raise $1.2 million dollars for Urgent Equipment Needs and 1.1 million dollars for its Breast Health Center. RCH is the major trauma centre for 1.5 million people from Burnaby to Boston Bar, and is the region’s heart centre - the only hospital to provide
