It’s New West vs. Nelson on Friday New youth centre in the running for $25,000 prize BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Folks around the Royal City are reminded to vote – and vote often – at kraftcelebrationtour.tsn.ca to help New Westminster’s new youth centre win $25,000 in the Kraft Celebration Tour. New Westminster will battle Nelson as the two B.C. finalists in the Kraft Celebration Tour. The two cities will face off in online voting that will take place from 9 a.m. on Friday, July 23 to 8:59 a.m. on Saturday, July 24. If New Westminster wins, it will receive $25,000 for the new youth centre and a community party. “It would be great publicity and good for the city to get the national exposure,” said Vance McFadyen, who nominated the youth centre in the nationwide contest. “Obviously my heart is set on getting money on the youth centre.” Royal City residents are encouraged to vote as many times as possible – and tell their friends, relatives and acquaintances living in New Westminster or elsewhere to do the same and support the Royal City. “If we do win, Kraft and TSN put on a huge celebration,” McFadyen said. “It will be in Moody Park. It would be a lot of fun.” In addition to a “buffalo pit barbecue,” the event would feature a live broadcast of TSN SportsCentre and games such as baseball, football and three-on-three basketball. Sandon Fraser, the city’s youth services coordinator, said the contest is a great way for residents to support the youth centre without donating their own money. “Every vote counts,” he said. Fraser said the contest’s fine print states that the community getting the

McFadyen, former city councillor Calvin Donnelly and local youths took to the streets on the weekend distributing “link slips” that provided people with

information about how and when to vote in the online contest. McFadyen will also be driving his car around the city, with music blaring, to draw attention to the large banners giving voting information. “I have planned a 15-hour voting day for myself,” said McFadyen, who will attend a breakfast at his former employer’s and then work at one of its comput-

ers. “I am totally committed to it.” Some local youths will be working the night shift to increase New Westminster’s vote. “The library is going to be kept open on the 23rd from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. They have a bank of computers,” McFadyen ◗Youth centre Page 8

City keeping an eye on problematic property Staff have dealt with constant complaints about noise and drugs BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Action is being taken to address crime and nuisance behaviours at a chronically problematic apartment building. New Westminster city council recently received a staff report about crime and nuisances associated with the building at 101 Royal Ave.

The apartment, which has been considered a problem property for a number of years, has been subject to special business licence condition regarding the building’s management in order to address maintenance deficiencies. “It has been a problem in the past. There has been a significant problem years ago,” said Keith Coueffin, the city’s manager of licensing and integrated services. “It has been one the city has been working with to ensure it is managed properly.” The staff report states that the

Opinion

apartment building is currently the “highest priority property” for the city’s housing integrated service team, which is responsible for dealing with problematic rental properties. “City staff will be working closely with the police service to monitor and assess the status of the property,” said a staff report. “In addition to billing for nuisance service calls, staff will also be implementing a zero tolerance for bylaw violations.” Municipal ticket fines will be issued for any bylaw violations that are subjected to municipal

ticketing. New Westminster Police Service has been working with the manager to ensure proper management practices are in place, Coueffin said. Insp. Laurin Stenerson, the police service’s inspector of support services, said the police were called to the building 22 times in 2006. “It seems to be slowly escalating, where we hit 101 calls at that building in 2009,” he said. “This year we are looking at breaking that.” In the first six months of 2010,

police had been called to the apartment about 60 times. The police service’s emergency response team was recently required to conduct a highrisk search of the building, at which time officers pointing weapons at the window were seen crouched behind police cars on the street. At that time, police executed a search warrant and seized drugs and a firearm. A report to council stated that a meeting was held with ◗Apartment Page 8

Residents reminded to take care of boulevard trees in hot weather

BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster’s boulevard trees would appreciate a drink of water during the warm summer weather. Longtime Royal City resident Tony Antonias ensures the boulevard tree in front of his house is watered yearround, but particularly in the hot summer weather. “If you have a boulevard tree, water it,” he suggests. “Just take out the hose, let it run. It’s got to get down deep to the roots.” Appearing at a recent city council meeting, Antonias quoted a poem by Joyce Kilmer. “I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree. ... Poems are made by fools like me, but only God can make a tree.” Antonias believes the boulevard tree in front of his home is flourishing because it’s regularly watered, and the area around its trunk is kept weed-free. “Let’s hope that we shall never see a thirsty Royal City tree,” he said. Antonias waters the boulevard tree in front of his house every few days. “It stresses me out to see a stressed tree,” he said. “It is a living thing.” Claude LeDoux, the city’s horticultural manager, said it’s important that people realize tree roots go deep into the ground. “That means you can put a hose near the trunk of the tree, let it flow – but slowly. It will then infiltrate the ground,” he said. “You can let it run for an hour or longer, but make sure it is going into the ground. If your soil is extremely dry, it will run off. It is hydrophobic. The ground is so dry, the water is repelled.” Once there is moisture in the ground, it will continue to absorb water. Trees will also be in a better position to absorb water if turf around their base is removed, so the

Residents may notice a difference in the health of the boulevard trees if they routinely water them. “The trees right now may look stressed,” LeDoux said. “Once you do this, it won’t have that stressed

look.” LeDoux said it’s most important to water the young trees planted on boulevards. There are more than 5,000 boulevard trees in areas throughout the city.

Flag pays tribute to soldiers Royal City residents are invited to pay tribute to soldiers who’ve given their lives in Afghanistan when the Traveling Flag makes a stop at city hall on Thursday. This flag lists the names of the 153 Canadian soldiers who have lost their lives in Afghanistan. The Traveling Flag is one of five flags that will be displayed in council chamber at city hall on Thursday, from noon to 2 p.m. The flag is accompa-

nied by a journal, where Canadians can record their thoughts and messages to the fallen soldiers and those who have served the nation. Ange MacIsaac, a Canadian military wife, started the Traveling Flag in 2008. “It travels throughout Canada to both supporters and families of the deployed, injured and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice,” she wrote in an overview of

the Traveling Flag. “With each visit the flag carries a journal and an opportunity for each individual holder to honour the fallen in their own respect. To date it has been displayed at Legions, memorials, to school groups and to private family functions alike.

There are no rules per se as its meaning is different for everyone it touches.” Once the flag has completed its travels in 2011 and the Canadian tours in Afghanistan are complete, a decision will be made about where the flag will be permanently located.

Const. Sean Hackman’s role as eye in the sky helped with a recent river rescue in Agassiz. Hackman, who has been seconded to work on the Air 1 police helicopter as a tactical officer, was on duty on July 14 when Agassiz RCMP received a 911 call that several teenagers had gotten into trouble on the Chehalis River. Amelia Victor, 16, had been swimming in the Chehalis River with friends when the current became too strong for her to keep her head above water. Her friends, Clinton Charlie, 17, and Alisha Baines, 14, managed to drag Amelia to a narrow bank and went for help. Two other people on the river, Joseph Chapman, and Warren Point, both 27, saw Amelia stranded on a rock and swam across the river to stay with her until help arrived. After the Agassiz RCMP received the distress call just after 5 p.m., Air 1 was dispatched to the area, with pilot David Brolin and Hackman on scene within minutes. Brolin and Hackman, along with uniformed officers Cpl. Scott Stoughton and Const. Bruce Johnson, located Amelia and performed a rescue. Johnson and Stoughton swam across the river with a backboard in order to hook her up to the helicopter. Brolin hovered over an unresponsive Amelia, and Hackman was dropped down to assess her condition. Hackman hooked Amelia up, and both were airlifted into the helicopter, where she was flown to Royal Columbian Hospital for treatment. Amelia was released from hospital on July 15 with minor injuries. “We are proud of the work done by Sean,” said New Westminster media spokesperson Const. Bruce Carrie. “This is the type of work we have come to expect from Sean as he takes on the challenging role of working on Air 1.” “All of the people involved in this incredible rescue should be called heroes,” Agassiz RCMP media spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck said in a press release. “They all acted selflessly in order to save the life of another person. … It was truly an amazing rescue.”

Local charged in sexual assault

A 35-year-old New Westminster man was arrested in connection with a sexual attack in southeast Vancouver. Benjamin Palk, also known as Benjamin Palk Tussart, 35, faces one charge of sexual assault, Vancouver police said Sunday. The original incident occurred on July 6 when a 19-year-old woman got off a bus and was walking along a trail near Southeast Marine Drive when she was attacked. Vancouver police are still trying to locate a man they are calling a Good Samaritan, who heard the woman screaming and scared off the attacker. FEATURING:

OUR VIEW

cer tried to get WorkSafe B.C. to compensate him for his injuries. The agency said the officer was off duty and therefore it was not a workplace injury. The legal wrangle has recently ended in the officer’s favour. A WorkSafe B.C. appeals tribunal has agreed that officers, who have sworn an oath to keep the peace, can place themselves on duty to prevent a crime. This ruling is a victory for police officers and for public safety.

The ideals of service – of putting the security and safety of others above their own – is the source of the public’s respect for police officers. It hardly makes sense that a trained officer would turn their back on a crime, whether they are on the clock or not. Police who consider themselves on duty at all times, whenever they are needed, are the kind of officers we need. And a ruling like this one goes a small way to acknowledging their work and dedication.

Liberals gamble on hypocrisy IN THE HOUSE

O

KEITH BALDREY

ne of the more irritating aspects of our parliamentary system is that the role of the official Opposition is often ill-defined. It’s not just about opposing everything the government does. But too often Opposition parties do just that – oppose everything – and if they take a holier-than-thou stance on everything, it can come back to bite them should they ever move into government. We are seeing that maxim play out continually with the B.C. Liberal government. The issues on which they can be accused of hypocrisy – saying and demanding one thing while in Opposition, and doing the precise opposite in government – are piling up. The latest reminder is the decision to expand government gaming operations – yet again – to include online casino gambling. The move makes sense, although it will be condemned by the puritans out there, who regard any kind of gambling as some sort of social evil

that should be eradicated, not expanded. Gambling will occur whether the government is involved in it or not, so the more the government can control gambling, the better. The gaming industry creates enormous revenues for “the house,” and the billion dollars or so B.C. collects every year helps fund social services, education and health care. But this argument seemed to have been lost on B.C. Liberals when they were in Opposition. They engaged in bouts of selfrighteous indignation whenever the NDP government of the day tried to expand gambling (for instance, the introduction of slot machines and the creation of more casinos). With the zealotry of religious fanatics, Gordon Campbell and his caucus attacked the NDP as immoral monsters hell-bent on destroying our social fabric. Naturally, once they became government, the B.C. Liberals learned to love gambling and the money to be made off it. Now they stand accused, yet again, of rank hypocrisy on this issue. But spare them no tears, because there are other examples of hypocrisy that are attached to a government because of the unrealistic moral high ground it carves out when it is in Opposition. For example, the B.C. Liberals also went to town over what it

Dear Editor:

I sit here with a heavy heart watching them tear the corrugated roof off the last net shed – by order of the city. It was still in use by some of the last fishers in Queensborough. Like other heritage buildings on this part of the river, its roof line is still perfectly straight after many decades, the framing under the metal perfect. All the heritage buildings on the dike, which many people asked to preserve during the official community plan (OCP) process, are being torn down one by one. Many of the finest fishing boats on the coast were built at Sather’s boat works. Their shed across the dike, demolished last week at the order of the city, ◗NDP Page 7 included the steam box that bent many a rib and

bow. All these buildings are in excellent shape structurally. They’re built with a quality of wood no longer available. Though this area is like a postage stamp compared to the heritage reclamation in Steveston, the heritage values are the same; preserving our past in its built environment allows us to understand it, enjoy it and relive it in imagination. The net shed at the foot of Jardine Street could have become part of the city’s waterfront access. It could have been a place to get in out of the wind, check out historical photos, relax in a seating area, maybe refreshments could be provided by various community groups as fundraisers. Not just another view platform but a community gathering place to enjoy the river and a taste of our past.

Problem is, she was a willing member of the former Campbell government that developed into the current government. Hence, her hands are not that politically clean. Ms. Taylor was well-acquainted with Gordon Campbell’s political philosophy when he was mayor of Vancouver, yet despite that knowledge she became one of his “star” candidates in the ’05 election. By doing so, she supported Campbell’s personal political plans for British Columbia. Will Campbell resign before the 2013 election? To answer that question you only have to review his level of inflexibility regarding his drunk driving conviction. It was obvious what course of action he should have taken, but his interpretation of that conviction rendered it a “personal” matter, it was no reason why he should leave the premier’s office. That arrogant reasoning will once again be repeated.

Will New Democrats learn a lesson from this? With electoral victory in 2013 seeming more likely by the day, the NDP would be wise to resist the temptation of cloaking themselves with moral piety, of pretending everything in government is so simple, and that everything the B.C. Liberals do these days is horrible. NDP leader Carole James has smartly backed away from automatically scrapping the HST. And the NDP hasn’t exactly said it will forgo any of the gambling expansion either. The NDP will need to provide some coherent, credible alternative policies to the Liberals. But if they overplay their hand and make unrealistic statements like the B.C. Liberals did before they formed government, New Democrats may find themselves a one-term administration only. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Liberals have shown equal ability in piling up huge budget deficits or tabling false budgets (the pre-election budget was a real whopper, as the latest public accounts reveal in great detail). The list goes on: vicious attacks on the NDP over the issue of child protection, contrasted to fighting with the independent children’s representative over service cuts and lack of accountability on that very issue. Then there’s the granddaddy of them all: an oft-repeated promise not to sell B.C. Rail, and then doing just that in a questionable transaction (to say the least, given there is a criminal trial mixed up with it). Piling up the hypocrisy begins to lend a stench to this government. Throw in the perceived deceitfulness associated with the HST, and the air is getting fairly ripe around the B.C. Liberals right now.

viewed as a heinous amount of public debt being piled up by the NDP government. Our children – and our children’s children! – would inevitably pay for this fiscal nonsense, was the constant refrain from the Liberals. Government services would naturally be squeezed by the mounting debt. Or so the argument went. So what has happened to the debt while the B.C. Liberals have been in power? Has it gone down, or at least flatlined? Well, no. The total government debt was $34 billion when the B.C. Liberals took power, and it is forecast to hit almost $53 million next year. So much for the hysterical arguments heard in Opposition. The NDP’s general fiscal competence was derided by a sneering Liberal Opposition, yet the B.C.

said. “We are going to be doing an all-night marathon. We are targeting youth.” The voting party will include music, movies, food and lots of chances to vote for New Westminster. Participation will be capped at 35 youths. “Youth have to register in advance,” Fraser said. “They can do it by calling the youth services office. We will accept registration up until Friday morning.” Throughout the night, youth will take turns voting on the 22 computers at the New Westminster Public Library. “We are serving Kraft Dinner and Kraft peanut butter and jam sand-

wiches,” Fraser said. “We are going with the whole Kraft food option.” A daytime voting party will be held from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Connaught Heights Elementary School, which has 18 computers. Youth wanting to register for the library voting party can call 604515-3775, and community members wanting to register for the voting party at Connaught Heights can call volunteer coordinator Shelly Schnee at 604-519-1023. Throughout the week, community members will be distributing flyers in New Westminster and at local grocery stores. Posters can also be picked up at Century House, for those wanting to display information about the contest.

“Even 10 or 15 minutes is a great way to do your part,” Fraser said. “Times are tough. This is a great way to help out.” People who don’t have computers can access the library’s computers during the day on Friday. McFadyen said voting is “very easy” and estimates people could be able to vote for New Westminster up to four times a minute. Once people get to the contest’s website, voters would vote for their city, type in a scrambled code word, click Submit and then the Vote Again link. New Westminster ’s youth centre will compete against a curling club project in Nelson on July 23, and the winner will be announced on TSN’s SportsCentre on July 26.

The report stated that the new owner acknowledged the building’s screening and eviction procedures must be immediately improved and agreed to hire a new on-site manager and property manager who are trained in dealing with problematic buildings. The city put the owner on notice that the “high level of crime and nuisance activities associated with the building will not be tolerated by the city,” and the city may consider enforcement actions, such as revoking the business licence, if immediate improvements aren’t made. The city also scheduled and conducted a detailed inspection of all suites in the building on July 8. “There was a number of concerns and deficiencies found within the building related to pest control,” Coueffin said. “There were cockroach infestations, mice infestations and bed bugs.” Coueffin said the owner is being notified of all the deficiencies and those issues must be addressed.

While that’s something that could be done, Stenerson said police would have to carefully consider that action as they wouldn’t want to deter people from calling police when necessary because they’re worried about being charged for the services. “It’s a fine line we have to play,” he explained. “It’s another tool we use if people aren’t cooperating.” In this case, Stenerson said police get the sense that the building’s new owner is willing to cooperate to improve the building.

above and beyond the struggle for cystic fibrosis. “Eva wanted nothing more than to have a legacy left behind once her fight came to an end. She has achieved in her short-lived life what very few people have,” McQuade wrote. “She has made the world stop for moment, reflect on their lives and those around them and realize how lucky we are, those of us that aren’t sick.” Council directed staff to identify options for an appropriate memorial to the former city ambassador. Meanwhile, a piece of artwork paying tribute to Markvoort is raising

funds for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Sixty-five members of the Federation of Canadian Artists created a piece of artwork in honour of Markvoort, each contributing a single painting of a red rose that were then combined into one composite painting. The original 65 Red Roses painting is currently on view at Hwang & Company Law Corporation in the Westminster Building at 711 Columbia St. Donations are being accepted for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Commemorative prints of the painting are available at both the law firm and Copp’s Shoes (638 Columbia St.) for $65.

The City of New Westminster’s Wi-Fi project has gone live in certain parts of the city. The pilot project is part of the city’s long-term livable city strategy, which aims to attract businesses, residents and visitors to New Westminster. “We’re a historic city with deep connections to our past, but we are always looking to the future,” said Mayor Wayne Wright. “The Wi-Fi pilot project will provide us with valuable feedback on whether this is a concept worth expanding citywide.” The city selected Bell and Motorola to supply the access point hardware and the technology, working under the guidance of the city’s information technology and electric utility departments. “We are the first city in the Lower Mainland to utilize the latest 802.11N wireless technology,” said Alvin Chok, the city’s chief technology officer. “This provides us with a versatile platform to test a variety of wireless applications for users during the pilot phase.” Under the pilot project, wireless Internet access will be available for up to 15 users at Queen’s Park, the New Westminster

Quit the brake noise

The traffic advisory committee will recommend that city council lobby for an end to jake brakes in New Westminster unless they’re really needed. Coun. Bob Osterman, who chairs the committee, said the issue of jake braking (also known as engine braking) use among truck drivers arose once again at the committee’s July meeting. The committee supports zero tolerance for truckers using jake brakes, unless they’re being used because of public safety. “Our society is getting more and more dense,” he said. “This is another (noise) intrusion into neighbourhood life.” The committee supports writing a letter to the provincial trucking association and increased police enforcement of trucks.

Dealing with aphids ◗P15 Teens gotta sing and dance ◗P17

Larry Wright/THE RECORD

Keeping track of the past: Manager Colin Stevens and summer student Gwyneth Charmley are working on completing the inventory of items in the New Westminster Museum and Archives’ collection.

Taking stock of the city’s history

Filling potholes, planning neighbourhoods and picking up garbage are but a few of the many jobs carried out by city employees. Some have lesser-known duties that fly under the radar. In the coming weeks, we’ll highlight some of these jobs in our ongoing Odd Jobs in the City series. This issue, Theresa McManus talks to Colin Stevens, manager of the New Westminster Museum and Archives, about a five-year project to catalogue the museum’s entire inventory.

A five-year project at the New Westminster Museum is nearing the finish line. Each of the more than 33,700 artifacts belonging to the museum, from the smallest trinket to a giant steamroller, has been

numbered and catalogued. “It’s a five-year process,” said Colin Stevens, manager of New Westminster Museum and Archives. “We have had to squeeze it in with the other things we do.” As time allowed, Stevens and a handful of other staff and summer students have gone through the museum’s various storage areas to catalogue items. “It’s ongoing,” he said about the job. “We will be wrapping it up this summer. We are searching the last storage area.” The job of cataloguing the museum’s collection, while not a full-time job, required some thought because of the various areas where items are stored. “I plotted out what needs to be done. I drew it on a map,” Stevens said. “We worked through it. We systematically went through each area. … We are down to the last room right now. It’s over at city hall.” In addition to being better organized, the undertaking makes the museum more accountable to the public. Ideally, the

whereabouts of any given item should be known within a few minutes. “The computer would tell us where it is located,” he said of requests about specific items. “It may or may not be accessible. It is about accountability.” Stevens explains that if someone donates a Bible to the museum’s collection, they should be able to return in the future and know where that Bible is. He said it’s important that citizens know items in the collection are safe and cared for – even if they can’t be accessed at that IN particular moment. “We have ways of putting the numbers on without damaging the artifact,” he said. “We do it very carefully.” Although the museum will be able to have accurate records of the vast majority of items in its collection, there may be some cases when that can’t be done. Some information from items received in the past may have gone missing through the

ODD

years. “It was pretty casual,” he said of earlier attempts at cataloguing items in the collection. “They didn’t always take time to write down enough details.” If identifying information has fallen off an item in the collection or the records are lacking, it can take a bit of work to sort things out. “It’s a bit like CSI, the detective work we have to do,” he said. “A lot of the fun is the detective work.” As of July 6, the New THE CITY Westminster Museum had 33,793 items catalogued in its collection. Some can be viewed at Irving House, while others are in storage onsite and offsite. “We are a bit like an iceberg,” Stevens said. “The public only sees the tip above the water.” Keeping the catalogue current will be a never-ending task as additional items are received in the future. tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Dealing with aphids BRANCHING OUT ANNE MARRISON

Larry Wright/THE RECORD

Sharing nature’s bounty: Andrea Buonassisi gathers up some fresh produce for the food bank during a recent donation drop-off at St. Thomas More Collegiate on Sunday. The event was organized by New Westminster’s Plant a Row, Grow a Row, a group that allows local gardeners to donate their extra produce for those in need. See www.growarow.org for more details.

Question: I have yellow stuff dropping all over my car, my tiled deck, my kitchen skylight and my white siding. It doesn’t wipe off and has to be removed with a scrubbing brush. This has been going on a few months, and I can’t keep on top of the cleaning. The environmental department at city hall reckoned it was bee droppings, but there are hardly any bees here. What I can’t understand is that my neighbour hardly has any at all. – Joadey Caldwell, by email Answer: This problem happens when aphids infest the trees and excrete a sticky substance that falls to the ground. There’s probably an aphid-filled tree close to your house. Your neighbour doesn’t have the same trouble because the offending tree is outside your house, not hers. Locally, I’ve come across this as a problem

mainly on birches and lirodendrons (tulip trees), but any tree badly infested with aphids creates a similar situation. If the tree is not enormously tall, you could try blasting the aphids with water from a hose. Once they’ve fallen out of the tree, they don’t usually climb back again. Ladybugs, lacewings and parasitic wasps all feed on aphids, but sometimes an infestation is too massive for natural predators to make a difference. There are organic sprays against aphids in garden centres, but spraying even a small tree would be hugely expensive and you might have to do it more than once.

Question: We replanted our own raspberry bed last year and enjoyed great berries last year. This year the berries are extremely small. I suspect lack of water is the cause. When is the critical time to ensure enough water for maximum size berries? Any other ideas for a miserable crop? – Nancy McAskill, by email Answer: It’s very likely lack of water is the cause – and

if you have water restrictions, you’ll need to make decisions about which plants can wait a few days for water and which can’t. The critical time for watering any food crop is when the crop starts to form. With raspberries, this is when little green berries start appearing. Then water either every day or as often as you can until the crop is harvested. After that the raspberry plants can be allowed to get somewhat dry, though not to the point they wilt. Manure or compost helps to produce fat berries, but for moisture retention, I’ve found grass clippings mulch a huge help. Some gardeners dry clippings first before spreading them and pull back the mulch slightly from stems aiming to prevent fungal disease or rotting. This is helpful for some plants, but I’ve not found it necessary for raspberries. Raspberries can get viral diseases that make berries small. But since you had a good crop last year, I’d advise you to try mulching first. Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her by e-mail, amarrison@shaw.ca.

They’ve just gotta sing and dance Teens take the stage with performing arts summer program BY JANAYA FULLER-EVANS REPORTER jfuller-evans@royalcityrecord.com

Some people just can’t fight the urge to sing and dance. Sarah Quinn, 14, of New Westminster is one of 70 young performers participating in the Gotta Sing! Gotta Dance! Program in Vancouver, which is in its 16th year. Five Burnaby girls, ranging in age from 11 to 14 years old, are also participating in the program for kids from nine to 19 this summer. Tagnea Grant, 14, Brittany Gee-Moore, 13, Maria Sekaly, 13, Nicole Heidema, 12, and Michela Banks, 11, have all been part of the annual summer theatre program in Vancouver for multiple years, as has Quinn. The cast will be performing Out of This World, written by program director and creator Perry Ehrlich, and David Hudgins. The musical is based on the TV show Gilligan’s Island. The story takes place in the year 2525 when a rocket bound for the moon is deflected and lands on the planet Neptune, which is inhabited by musical theatre performers. Gilligan, Skipper, Ginger, Mary Ann, the Professor, and Mr. and Mrs. Howell meet the Neptunites, but fear attack by the Monotones, who also live on Neptune and are controlled by the evil Dr. Elvirus, according to a Gotta Sing! Gotta Dance! press release. The passengers are protected

by Neptune’s police force – the space cadets – who are blonde and brawny, but not very brainy. Quinn, who attends New Westminster High School, is in her fifth year with the program. She is hoping to move into opera in the future, she says. “I like being able to express myself on stage,” she says, “ to give the performance to other people.” She will be playing two of the space cadets in the production of Out of This World. Grant, a Moscrop Secondary student in her sixth year with the program, is excited to be involved. “It’s a great way to spend my summer,” she says. Grant, who plays one of the musical’s narrators – Girl No. 1 – has been dancing since she was three and hopes to be on Broadway some day. Her performance experience is useful in her daily life, as well. “It gives you a certain confidence you can use in public,” she says, “to be able to dance to music, have fun and not care what people think.” Gee-Moore, who attends Stratford Hall in Vancouver, has also been dancing since she was three. This is her fourth year with Gotta Sing! Gotta Dance! She enjoys working with the other performers, she says. “I like working together through the numbers.” She will be playing the Mona Lisa and one of the space cadets. Sekaly, also a Moscrop Secondary student, loves musical theatre, she says. She is in her second year with the program.

Front, from left: Maria Sekaly, 13, and Michela Banks, 11, both from Burnaby. “I enjoy working with people who share the passion for musical theatre that I do,” she says. She finds the experience of preparing a production in three weeks exciting, she adds. Sekaly will be playing the roles of first wife and second actor. Sekaly also appreciates working with so many teachers who are the best in their field, she

you,” she says. Heidema really enjoys the set construction parties, where each group helps out with painting and construction, then has pizza and goes swimming afterwards, she says. Banks, who attends Seaforth Academy, says the program has brought her out of her shell. She

adds. Heidema, who attends Gilmore Community School, is playing airplane inventor Wilbur Wright. She is also in her second year with Gotta Sing! Gotta Dance! She enjoys taking on another persona, she says. “You can be cheesy and hilarious, and no one would judge

More fond memories of Empire Stadium

Last week we featured the winning entry in our Fondest Memories of Empire Stadium contest. This week, we are pleased to present submissions from the runners-up. Once again, thank you to everyone who participated. From Janice Bobic, Burnaby: I remember the first BC Lions football game I went to at Empire Stadium, when I was 10 years old. We sat on the grassy hill on the north side on a pleasant sunny evening. As we awaited the start of the game, some jets came screaming overhead directly over the stadium from the north. I began screaming frantically, trying to hide under my dad’s arm, and crying, “They’re going to drop bombs on us!” Dad said, “No, no, no, that’s part of the show.” My fear gradually subsided and I recovered from this “trauma” as the football game started, and excitement took over as the players ran out while the announcer called their names. I remember Willie Fleming — how he could run — and he was the family favourite. In a subsequent year, we received some original numbered photographs autographed by Willie Fleming and the other Lions players. I still have all these photos, and eventually plan to sell them by auction. I was there at Empire Stadium when the Beatles came to Vancouver, and Diana Ross and the Supremes opened the show with their metallic gold skinny dresses flashing in the lights. My sister and I were sitting on the northeast bleachers, but with all the girls screaming throughout the whole show, we never heard a bit of the Beatles’ music. As we were heading out after the show, our mom and auntie were waiting,

standing outside the stadium door when the Beatles ran right in front of them making their getaway from the stadium. From Gordon Lew, New Westminster In the late seventies/early eighties, as a little kid, I was just learning to love and understand the game of CFL football, the only sport that my Dad watched ever since arriving in Canada. We would watch all the games, especially the Lions on TV, but we could not afford to buy tickets to watch them at Empire Stadium. Soon, they had a promotion where you could go get free admission into Empire Stadium if you presented a Nalley’s chip bag or box. I remember going down to the Woodward’s Food Floor with my Dad to buy our Nalley’s chips, and then using it to watch the Lions games. I remember sitting in the end zone on a hard park bench, on the north end of the stadium, but I did not care as we were watching the Lions live. I remember many kids behind the benches where we were sitting playing their own game of football on the grass with a Nerf football, having a great time. They probably missed half the game! I remember watching and idolizing many exciting players: Leon Bright, Larry Key, Joe Paopao, Glen Jackson, Larry Crawford, Lui Passaglia — so many great players and so many exciting games. But my

favourite memory of Empire Stadium was having my dad of me. It hit a man on the back of his head and he bring me down to the stadium to watch the games with stopped, turned around and said, “Hello!” to no one him, father and son hanging out together watching the in particular. Lions. My dad and his friend stopped in their tracks, From Leslie Cummings, Delta: looking horrified! I thought I was really in for it, but My fondest memory of Empire Stadium is back in suddenly they both starting laughing like crazy. Dad the mid-’50s when I was about nine years old. My dad said to me, “Do you know who you just hit on the head and his friend were going to a BC Lions football game with that cup?” “No,” I answered, feeling terrible and I asked if I could go, too. My dad looked surprised about the entire thing. Dad told me, “That was Ted that his little girl would want to go to a football game, Reynolds!” For those who might not know, Ted Reynolds but after just a moment’s hesitation, he said, “Yes!” Of course I knew nothing about football, but it was one of the most famous local sports broadcasting was simply the fact that I got a “date” with my dad legends who, sadly, passed away last year at the age of when my two sisters had to stay home with Mom. I 84. I don’t know if he ever remembered being hit on the remember feeling so grown-up watching the game head at that game, but I know that I’ll never forget it. with these two men, but the real excitement was to come when the game was over. Dad had bought me a drink during the game, but I didn’t know what to do with the paper cup. I didn’t see a garbage can anywhere, so as we were walking out among the crowd, I just tossed my cup into the air ahead BC Lions fans are once more creating fond memories of Empire Stadium as they flock to the outdoor stadium that is the Lions’ home field this season.

A promise to keep it real at blues fest

Willie Nelson’s son’s band set to play next month

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

Lukas Nelson, son of well-known country singer Willie Nelson, has had no shortage of musical inspiration in his life. His band, Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real, has been on tour with B.B. King for the past month and has toured with the blues legend off and on for four years. “If my dad’s Yoda, then B.B. King is Obi-Wan Kenobi,” Nelson says. The latest tour, which began July 7, has gone well, he adds, with Promise of the Real getting standing ovations on a nightly basis. The 21-year-old singer, songwriter and guitarist considers King and his bandmates mentors. The two bands have become like family while touring, he says. Nelson grew up touring with his father on his legendary Honeysuckle Rose bus, along with brother Micah Nelson, who performs percussion and creates art on stage at some Promise of the Real performances. Nelson is influenced by his father’s music, he says, and listened to it more than

any other musician, aside from Bob Dylan. “I’ve just been able to watch him,” Nelson says, adding he saw his father perform all the time and learned from him. “I watched his stage presence.” His father taught him to play guitar, and he began performing with him when he was 13 years old. Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real formed after Nelson’s first band, 40 Points, disbanded in 2007 due to “a conflict of distance.” Promise of the Real is comprised of drummer Anthony LoGerfo, bassist Corey McCormick and former 40 Points percussionist Tato Melgar, as well as brother Micah. Nelson is the songwriter for the band. He has written lyrics since he was a child. Songs come to him fully formed, with everything from the string section to the lyrics, he says. “I let it come from the source,” Nelson says. “It’s almost like being a testimonial writer in a courthouse.” Nelson formed the band after quitting college, he says, naming it “Promise of the Real” to distinguish it from other California bands, some of which he felt had a fake, inauthentic sound. Other musicians Nelson

Technology is important for staying connected with the band’s fans, he says. The band has a strong online presence, with Facebook and Twitter accounts, as well as an online store on its website, www.promiseofthereal. com.

“It’s really important for us to keep up with people on Facebook,” Nelson says. Band members may be starting a blog in the near future, he adds. The band is working on an album that is almost finished, and Nelson hopes to release it in the fall. Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real will be playing this year’s Burnaby

◗ HEALTH

Self-worth determines happiness in life HEALTHWISE

I

Dr. Davidicus Wong

n practice and in life, I have found that the root of our unhappiness often lies in our sense of personal self-worth. We can be physically healthy, respected by those around us and have all our material needs met, but if we feel worthless or unworthy, we remain miserable. We can see what we need to do to improve our lives, but if we feel incapable of doing what needs to be done, we settle for the status quo. If we lack self-respect, self-esteem and self-worth, we may even accept abusive relationships. Though it may seem basic, the concept of selfworth is not so easy to define. It is more than just confidence that comes with learning, practice and

mastery in the varied and numberless skills that are part of human activity. It is more than finding a job in which you feel both capable and needed. It is more than a strong ego. It is more than personal or social success. A healthy sense of selfworth can give you the courage to deal with the detours and challenges of life – with illness, tragedy and loss. It can help you thrive as your body ages and the years behind you outnumber the years ahead. It allows you to endure when you appear to have lost everything and are asked to begin again. Self-worth is unconditional self-acceptance, self-value and self-love. Unconditional in that it endures under all conditions, at all times, in spite of success and failure, losses and gains. It is an acceptance of our selves as we were, as we are and as we are becoming. It is the ability to see the redeeming value in ourselves as individuals and an important part of

society. It is not an egocentric self-adoration of our superficial selves or a preoccupation with our own personal interests. It is a compassionate acceptance of our value as individual human beings, deserving of happiness and love. In a happy and healthy adult, a positive sense of self-worth is all these things. It underlies all that we do – how we think,

how we speak, how we act and how we love. A healthy sense of self-worth recognizes the value and worthiness in the people around us. It assures us that we deserve to be happy just as those around us also deserve happiness. It allows us to love others, and it allows us to accept their love. But such a positive sense of self-worth is not a gift we are all given at

birth. It is learned. If we feel unloved as children, if we are grow up in an environment of negativity and criticism, or if we suffer emotional, physical or sexual abuse, we come to believe that we are unworthy, unloved and unvalued. We may learn to feel helpless and never try to escape a suffocating and blinding cage of unhappiness. In upcoming columns,

Tour traces escaped prisoners’ footsteps A Sense of History Research Services is hosting a tour where participants can trace the steps of an infamous escaped prisoner. The tour tells the tale of Bill Miner, a train robber who slipped from the grips of prison. In August of 1907, Miner, “the Grey Fox,” a renowned train robber and thief extraordinaire, led three others in an escape from the British Columbia Penitentiary in New Westminster. For the first time, A Sense of History Research Services is offering a “Bill Miner escapes” tour. This tour will combine a walk near the actual site of the escape to discuss the event and the main players, with a cemetery tour to meet a few of the principals linked to this dramatic event. The story of Bill Miner is a complicated one full of misinformation and deception, a press release notes. It’s a tale mixed with some truth, a few additional facts and volumes of files and reports. This tour is based on

some published sources and additional research that clearly outlines the escape and notes a selection of people involved with the various events of the time, the event and Miner himself. The B.C. Day weekend tour will take place on Sunday, Aug. 1, at 3 p.m. in Glenbrook Ravine Park, off Jamieson Court, in New Westminster. This tour will start in the Glenbrook ravine and includes some stairs and slight hills. The tour will end at the Fraser and St. Peter’s cemeteries near 100 Richmond St. The tour is part of a series focusing on New Westminster’s history. The tours are free and take about one and a-half to two hours. They run rain or shine, and there is no need to preregister. Just show up and go for a walk. Each tour provides stories and information that will enhance participants’ understanding of the history and heritage of the Royal City. editorial@royalcityrecord.com

I’ll explore our responsibilities as parents and teachers in nurturing healthy self-worth in our children, how abusive experiences and relationships demean our sense of self-worth, and how we may be able to overcome our past and ourselves to rebuild a sense of self-worth.

Play ball: New Westminster’s major Little League all-star team is getting ready to host the association’s firstever provincial championship tournament at Justin Morneau Field from July 24 to Aug. 1

New West majors set to host Little League provincials BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster’s first-ever opportunity to host a Little League provincial championships is going to be a memorable one. The fun starts off with a welcome barbecue at Justin Morneau Field on Friday and is followed by a skills competition, including a home-run derby, throwing skills, base runnng and a timed team relay. On Saturday, the first of a weeklong series of three matches a day takes place at Morneau field. The opening ceremonies will take place at 1 p.m., following the opening game between District 6 champion Hastings and West Vancouver from the North Shore district. Mayor Wayne Wright and Justin Morneau’s father, George, are expected for the opening ceremonies. Host New Westminster will play all its round-robin games in prime time at 6 p.m., beginning against Fraser Valley champion Whalley on Saturday. Little Mountain, Trail and Layritz from Vancouver Island will also compete for the provincial banner. For New Westminster, it is an opportunity to showcase a rising star in the Little League ranks, while

also showing off the city’s wonderful volunteer community. Volunteers can still be part of the fun at the provincials by going to the association’s provincial website www.newwestbaseball.com and clicking on the volunteer list icon near the top of the page. A complete game schedule is also available on the web site. Part of the fun at the provincials will also include a movie night in the park on Wednesday night at Morneau Field, beginning at 8:30 p.m. The field has undergone a makeover thanks to city crews and the New Westminster emblem will be spray painted onto the warm-up circle, bringing a real professional atmosphere to the park, said New Westminster association vice-president and major all-star coach Ed Zacharuk. “Definitely the group of people in our organization and good, solid executive support is taking it to heart and just running with it,” Zacharuk added. “They’re putting a bright face on New West.” And so is the team. In its first year in Little League, New Westminster was unable to score even a single run.

In its second season, they finally succeeded in getting a run across home plate. By the third year, New Westminster won its first-ever Little League game. Last season, a Royal City all-star team took Hastings to the district final game before finishing second overall. Zacharuk is hoping the experience of hosting a provincial tournament will help the team next season to earn a spot as District 6 champ. “It’s a really good group of kids and they have really started going to the skills nights and getting New Westminster on its feet,” he said. There will be three games a day played at Morneau Field at noon, 3 and 6 p.m., up to and including Friday, July 30. On Saturday, semifinal playoffs between the top four finishing teams are scheduled for noon and 3 p.m. Between the playoff games a raffle will be held for a signed Justin Morneau jersey, plus a grand prize of two tickets to anywhere that WestJet flies. The championship final will be played on Sunday at 1 p.m. The New Westminster all-star team will be practicing every night this week until 6 p.m.

◗ WLA LACROSSE

’Bellies shocked by last-place Lakers

BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Few people, including the Burnaby Lakers themselves, could have foreseen this result coming. The last-place senior A Lakers shocked the Western Lacrosse Association-leading New Westminster Salmonbellies 10-4 at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre Friday night. Veteran Cam Sedgwick and rookie Scott Tinning tallied eight points apiece, including a pair of goals each, to lead the on-again, off-again Lakers to their fifth win in what has to be the craziest WLA season in years. Burnaby weathered a storm of relentless attacking in their own end for the first five minutes of play before finding its stride. Rory McDade opened the scoring for the Lakers on a pick-and-go with Sedgwick on the left side against Salmonbellie keeper Tyler Richards. Less than a minute later, Lakers’ cap-

tain Bryan Safarik scored an unassisted goal in transition after rookie Burnaby keeper Drew Dickie had stopped a trizzie of point-blank shots by New Westminster at the other end of the floor. Dickie was unfortunate to not receive a game star, despite stopping 47 shots for only his second win in the Burnaby cage. The 22-year-old former Nanaimo senior B goalie and Winnipeg native took it in stride, remarking he remembers his first junior A game in Burlington, Ont. when he was heckled with “Go back to Manitoba.” “Everyone was ecstatic we beat New Westminster but we have to get past it. But anything is possible,” said Dickie, who has a third-best 8.53 goals against average and a league-best .813 save percentage to date. “I don’t think anyone in our position has beaten both New West and Victoria. Now we ◗WLA Page 29

◗ MIDGET LACROSSE

New West fails to medal at B.C.s BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Close calls happened one too many times for the New Westminster midget Salmonbellies. The A1 league champions swept all five of its preliminary round matches, but failed to win in the all-important medal round at the B.C. minor box provincials in Mission last week. New Westminster squeaked by three of its round-robin matches by a single goal, including a 9-8 win in overtime over eventual bronze medallist Peninsula on Saturday. Later that same day, the ’Bellies lost their semifinal matchup against Coquitlam 5-4. The Salmonbellies had defeated Coquitlam all three previous meetings this season. “It was sooner than later they would beat us again,” said New West head coach Jamie Stewart. “We played 40 minutes and they played 60.” Coquitlam went on to win the gold medal 10-3 over Langley on Sunday. Peninsula defeated New Westminster 7-2 for third place. “They were devastated losing Saturday and I knew

we were going to struggle in the bronze medal game. They had their hearts set on the gold medal,” Stewart added. The critical match turned out to be the overtime win over Peninsula despite already locking up the top seeding, Stewart said. New Westminster won the provincial midget A1 division last year. This season was the first midget A1 league title for the New West club. New Westminster team captain Navi Mahal led the Salmonbellies to onegoal wins over Richmond, Saanich and Peninsula. The ’Bellies also defeated Coquitlam 3-1 in the opening game of the provincials. Hunter Onstine, Jason Delgrosso, Nathan Stewart, Chris Nasato, Riley Catalano and goalie Tyler Barrett were among the standouts for New Westminster. Stewart, who was unable to attend all the games because of work commitments, praised volunteer Level 2 coaches Dirk Rachfall, Steve Goodwin and Kevin Ballance for filling in for him alongside assistant Rich Peterson. “That’s New Westminster lacrosse right there,” he said.

straight games would be a big boost for the ’Bellies. It would also clinch a berth into the B.C. finals against the winner of the Coquitlam Adanacs/Delta Islanders semifinal. If necessary, a Game 4 would be played in Victoria on Sunday. A fifth and final Game 5 would be back at Queen’s Park Arena on Tuesday, July 27, starting at 5 p.m. In the other semifinal, Delta gave Coquitlam all it could handle, taking the league champions to overtime before falling 6-5. Matthew Dinsdale got the OT winner. Game 2 of the best-of-five playoff was played in Delta on Tuesday (after Record deadlines).

just have to steal a couple of games from Coquitlam.” That outcome is anyone’s guess after a Coquitlam win in Nanaimo and a Langley victory at home over second-place Victoria on Saturday. The Lakers extended their 2-0 advantage in the middle period to 6-0 before New Westminster’s Corbyn Tao tallied his first of two in the game. In the final period, Burnaby continued to outscore the visitors 3-2, including a pair from third star Calvin Craig. “We always prepare for the best. We beat Victoria decisively, I thought and I don’t think any team in the league is better than us. I think we proved it tonight,” said Craig. New Westminster, on the other hand, fielded another changed lineup with Jordan Hall, Jordan McBride and Curtis Manning currently away at the World field lacrosse championships in Manchester, England. “You never expect something like that but it happens occassionally,” said ‘Bellies captain Nenad Gajic. “We got outworked. They fully deserved the win.” Gajic, who has played just five games this season and

epitomizes in many ways the roster challenges faced by New Westminster, says it is partly responsible for the closeness of the league. “I don’t think there are any teams that are afraid of us, and if we don’t put out what we need, we’re not going to beat any team. They’re all too good,” he said. “Their goalie deserves a lot of credit, … but we didn’t match their intensity. … We’re not playing like a top team right now. We don’t deserve it.” Gajic added that the team’s ability earlier in the season to pull victories out of a hat in overtime has perhaps had the effect of making the team believe it’s unbeatable. But he dismissed the excuse. “Confidence doesn’t win you games, you have to match the effort (of the other team). This is the last point of the season you want to give up games like this,” Gajic said. “Five overtime games is a fact. If we can’t understand that, we’re going to have trouble going into the post season.” New Westminster takes on the Langley Thunder at Queen’s Park Arena on Thursday. Game time is set for 7:45 p.m.
