Trip to honour chief

A plan to build a new performing arts centre in the new high school project has cleared a hurdle at city hall. On Monday, city council approved a staff recommendation to support proceeding with the replacement of Massey Theatre with a new Massey Performing Arts Centre with up to 1,000 seats. Council also directed staff to strike a task force to facilitation input from performing arts groups about the requirements and specifications for the future performing arts centre.

Tsilhqot’in Nation members hope to eventually determine if Chief Ahan is buried under school BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER
Victory bump: New Westminster Hyacks receiver Jeremy Wilson (right) hams it up with teammate Jordan Chin after one of Wilson’s two majors at Mercer Stadium in New Westminster on Friday. For more, see sports on page 27.
Members of the Tsilhqot’in Nation are travelling to New Westminster this month to honour their chief, who was executed here 145 years ago. They will hold a ceremony at the New Westminster Secondary School, and then one at the location of the old downtown courthouse. These are the two sites where they believe Chief Ahan could be buried. The Tsilhqot’in chief – executed in July 1865 – was one of six chiefs sentenced to death during the Chilcotin War. The war was a confrontation in 1864 between members of the Tsilhqot’in people in B.C. and European settlers. The exact location of Ahan’s burial remains a mystery. The possibility that Ahan might be buried at the high school surfaced in 2008 and drew attention to the old cemetery under New Westminster Secondary School. Ultimately, a research report determined that it was likely that Ahan was buried by the old courthouse downtown, where he had been executed for his part in the war. ◗Ahan Page 4

Done deal: Massey will face wrecker’s ball
School trustees vote to replace 60-year-old Massey Theatre with a new 1,000 seat performing arts theatre BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER
School trustees unanimously passed a plan that will mean a final curtain call for the Massey Theatre.
At a special meeting held Monday night, the board of education passed a motion that confirms its plan to replace Massey Theatre. The board opted to replace the 60-year-old theatre and replace it with a 1,000-seat theatre. The plan was sent out for public consultation, and the majority of those who responded – 73 per cent – favoured the bid to replace the theatre with a new performing arts centre. “We had a rather extensive public process,” board of education chair James

The new theatre would be built as part of the high school project. The plan is to build three new schools – an elementary, middle and high school – in New Westminster. The high school is the last of the three schools to be built because it is the best sequence for accommodating

A 27-year-old sex-trade worker who may have been kidnapped in Vancouver on Sunday morning escaped in New Westminster later on Sunday. The incident began at the Cassandra Hotel in Vancouver when Vancouver Police received a report of a woman screaming in the 3000 block of Kingsway. “The reports were that a female was forced into a vehicle and that vehicle left the scene,” This story first appeared on Vancouver www.royalcityrecord.com Police Insp. Eric Grummisch told The Province newspaper. Grummisch added that it was the quick thinking of a witness who helped secure the capture of the alleged kidnapper. “We had alert citizens who took note of the licence plate of the vehicle involved and that was a major element in the successful resolution,” said Grummisch. That resolution involved the New Westminster police being called to Queensborough, where the woman managed to escape. The woman was suffering from stab wounds to her back and was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital for non-lifethreatening injuries. She has since

Squash pit: Young Royal City residents quickly scooped up the 1,000 pumpkins up for grabs at real estate agent Derrick Thornhill’s annual pumpkin patch event at Queen’s Park on Saturday.
Royal City residents have embraced the city’s new green waste collection service with gusto. When it was launched at the beginning of October, New Westminster’s new automated waste collection system provided weekly garbage pickup and biweekly yard and food waste pickup. The city will now be picking up yard and food waste from single family homes weekly. “We had an overwhelming amount of participation from residents,” said Kristian Davis, the city’s supervisor of solid waste and recycling. “Our volumes for greens are outweighing our volumes for garbage.” Davis said the city doesn’t want to discourage residents by not picking up all of their food and yard waste or by having them put it into their regular garbage. “We were looking at the option of weekly collection for 2011,” he said. “The demand is there right now. It is going so well – we want to keep that participation up.” Before deciding to move to weekly pickup, the city had received phone calls from residents expressing concern that their green bins were full and they had nowhere to put the rest of the greens and food waste. Yard trimmings, leaves and grass, foodsoiled paper such as napkins and pizza boxes, and cooked or uncooked food scraps, including meat, fish, bones, dairy, and eggshells can go in the new yard/green waste carts. Each single-family household in New Westminster received a 240-litre cart for Cleaner Greener food scraps and yard trim-

Ahan: Tsilhqot’in Nation paying respects in city ◗ continued from page 1
The Tsilhqot’in will visit both the high school and the courthouse site to honor Ahan on Oct. 26. “It’s our version of Remembrance Day,” said Joe Alphonse, director of the Tsilhqot’in National Government. The day is held to honour those who were executed for their part in the Chilcotin War, he said. The Tsilhqot’in people object to the chiefs being tried as criminals and maintain that the Chilcotin War was a territorial dispute between two warring nations. Along with their land (Tsilhqot’in territory lies in the Cariboo-Chilcotin regionofBritishColumbia),Alphonse said they were also protecting their women, who were being violated by the settlers, he said. It’s something that’s rarely talked
about but was significant part of why they went to war, Alphonse said. “You can touch a man all you want but don’t touch the woman – that’s the core of your nation,” he said. If any human remains are found during construction of the high school site, Alphonse said they expect DNA testing would be done to determine whether the remains are Ahan’s. He also said they would like to see a monument on the site to acknowledge Ahan and his role in the Chilcotin War. This is the second time members of the Tsilhqot’in Nation have come to New Westminster to honour Ahan. A group also came in 2008 and held a ceremony at the high school. www.twitter.com/nikimhope

of Learning component and the proposal to replace the Massey Theatre. In addition to receiving a report about the school capital project, the council meeting included a designated time for people to speak about the project and the Neighbourhoods of Learning concept at its evening meeting.
“I think the people have confidence in us that we are going to do the right thing,” Wright said, noting no one spoke on the matter. “I think that is why they are not showing up.” A staff report states the new John Robson elementary school, the new middle school for the west side of the city and the new

The City of New Westminster would pay for the rest of the seats to create a 1,000-seat regional community theatre. At Monday’s meeting, the board also confirmed its plan to include neighbourhood learning centres at the elementary school at the St. Mary’s site, the middle
school at the John Robson site and the high school. The city also supports moving forward with the bid to build a new theatre. The next step for the school district is to work with a Neighbourhoods of Learning committee – made up of parents and district representatives – to determine what other types of Neighbourhoods of Learning programs should be in the schools. Janzen said he hopes to have a project agreement signed with the Ministry of Education by the end of the year.

Surrey RCMP were on the lookout for the car, a blue Honda Civic, after an alert went out from Vancouver police. “The arrest was done by the Surrey RCMP at our request,” said Grummisch. “We had put a lookout on the system for this vehicle, and the Surrey RCMP responded and took the male into custody.” According to a press release from
the Vancouver Police Department, Ivan William Arnold, 47, of Surrey has now been charged with kidnapping, unlawful confinement, aggravated assault, robbery, assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and uttering threats.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Sapperton has challenges ◗ continued from page 6
The Fry centre across the street, which used to be a medical building, has had exciting moments with those who cannot contain their problems within the walls. Across Sherbrooke is the mental rehab unit of the hospital, which also has patients in funny flannels fidgeting around this little town. The speed limit is very slow, few are watching for cars. The distractions on this shopping strip, made up of hospital staff mixing with patients on a daily basis, has one not doubting our medicare system in action. The syringes and pills, stethoscopes and other paraphernalia, hospital employees bring along makes one nervous. It’s all in a day at Sapperton. Shop owners here along East Columbia have seen some risky and frisky days from this strange mix of mediocre people. They are hard-pressed to blame it on street improvements, and not desperate enough to put the blame at the door of medicare facilities that are never funded quite right. The banks and post office outlet left long ago, blaming it on everybody’s going online and it’s the information age. Everybody here complained bitterly about the electronic excuse, and some even tried to lock the bank doors from the outside claiming it was the opposite to a robbery. It was not a happy ending, and many left for good. One of the more stable businesses is the
Chevron station, but between 7-Eleven and the Town Pantry with the bank machines, gas and stuff the others are overlooked. For those owners who accepted this challenge, you deserve the Courage Star of Small Business. The brighter spots are the athletic shops like archery, bikes, dojo and a personal training boutique. As long as the membership is moderate and stable, those people may be choice customers of others also. The light at the end of the tunnel may be an indoor shopping plaza or a living pod situation, attached to the hospital. The brewery site and those new residences behind the hospital certainly need a pod with shops and a SkyTrain extension adjoining that to answer owner complaints on what to do. It would give the building owners time to knock down the old 194050 world of buildings that are shop-worn and outdated. TransLink has announced offices in the Brewery complex that could adjoin the shopping pod too. For the most part today, all this is just overflow medical parking lots that could easily just be general pay parking for that is expected in hospital districts. The time is now to build the shopping pod while construction is in progress. The city will have to change a few zoning laws, but the customer base is there for years to come. The little guy who took the challenge on the streets of Sapperton should get the reward of a place in the pod with security and modern features.

a showdown on her leadership, because waiting too long could actually cement her hold on the job? In recent weeks, James can point to several things that cast her in a good light. She spoke at a corporate fundraiser that oversold its target (250) by almost 100 per cent (400 tickets were sold). She received glowing coverage in a special Globe and Mail section on powerful Canadian women leaders. And the latest poll pegs NDP support at 49 per cent, more than double the support for the B.C. Liberals. But there are those within the NDP who resent her attempt to modernize the party, expand its support, and to push it more toward the political
middle, and away from the left and organized labour (think Tony Blair in Britain). For some of these people, their rigid ideology will never allow them to embrace James’ nonideological approach. They would rather lose an election than compromise their ideological positions. Meanwhile, James’ troubles have given Premier Gordon Campbell and his government a brief respite from the pounding they’ve been getting over various issues, notably the HST. But Campbell must face his own leadership vote at the party convention next month, and it is by no means a sure thing that he’ll score a high number. However, unlike the New Democrats, the B.C.

The two parties’ marked difference when it comes to dealing with problems with leadership brings to mind that famous line from the Godfather movies: “It’s not personal. It’s just business.” That would seem to be the B.C. Liberal motto as they begin to deal with the leadership question. But the NDP seem to have turned that line around. For them, the attacks on James show their motto is: “It’s not business. It’s just personal.” Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global B.C.

Pepper spray disrupts classes BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Some high school students got an early dismissal Monday after a pepper spray incident at New Westminster Secondary School At 1 p.m., high school officials responded to a report of pepper spray being released in the hallways of NWSS. “Although the spray was not directed at any one individual or group, the spray is an irritant,” said New Westminster Police
Service Sgt. Gary Weishaar. While the school’s police liaison officer investigated the incident, the New Westminster fire department was called to help clear the air with fans. Weishaar said that while no one was injured as a result of the incident, police are investigating it as a mischief incident. According to Weishaar, high school officials were looking at sending some students, who had classes in the affected area, home early as a result of the pepper spray.

mings carts. Most houses have received one 120-litre cart for their garbage, while properties with a registered suite have received a 240-litre container. After Nov. 1, people who feel they need a larger cart will be able to upsize to the 240L carts for an additional $102 per year. “I haven’t received too many calls from people to upsize,” Davis said. “It’s been kind of surprising.” Since launching the new automated waste collection system at the beginning of October, city staff has fielded phone calls and emails from residents with a variety of questions and
concerns. “Most of it is starting to settle down,” Davis said. “We are working on the last few details.” Inquiries have ranged from what to do with yard waste and green waste that doesn’t fit in bins, and why garbage and green collection is now taking place at front curbs instead of alleys in some areas of the city. “We try to keep most people with the same collection location as previous,” Davis said. “There were some lanes that were really tight. They are few and far between.” Davis said some people have voiced concerns that
they received the wrong size bins, while others questioned why they can’t place diapers and compostable bags in the green waste container. Davis said they contain some plastic content that doesn’t break down and contaminates the product. City staff is using stickers to help inform residents about the correct placement of their bins, as well as to help inform them of any items that have been placed in wrong bins (such as plastics being put in greens cart). “So far, so good,” Davis said. “Obviously there were a few bugs we had to work out.”

City councillor at conference McEvoy is attending a Livable Cities gathering in South Carolina
BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
Coun. Jaimie McEvoy is hoping to pick up some new ideas for creating a livable city in South Carolina. McEvoy is attending the International Making Cities Livable conference from Oct. 17 to 21 in Charleston, South Carolina. “This is the organization that started the entire Livable Cities movement,” he said. The Livable Cities website states that conferences focus attention on the importance of making cities livable for children, the need for public transit, bicycle lanes and trafficcalmed streets, for human scale architecture and mixed-use urban fabric, for reviving the city centre and creating public places where people can gather. Topics at the conference include healthy cities, child-friendly communities, nature in the urban environment, public health and planning issues, promoting healthy transportation modes, urban villages and towns, regional planning for healthy cities, green buildings/green neighbourhoods and traditional town planning. “Other councillors have previously been to one of these,” McEvoy said. “I am the only one going to this one. The emphasis is on healthy cities for children.”
McEvoy said the City of New Spitale, who co-chaired the task Westminster has tried to make the force, said all of the early work about city more livable for children through livable cities is still relevant today. initiatives such as increased child “It is still important,” she said. care options. “The reason why that conference, I “The question for me is, can we do felt, was a good one was it is about more?” he said. “As the city densifies making cities and downtown childand grows we want to make sure it is friendly.

Chinese delegation visits Royal City BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
New Westminster didn’t reveal any city secrets when it opened up the books to some visitors from China – but it may have helped pave the way for a tighter ties to Dongcheng. A delegation from the Dongcheng district of Beijing visited the city last week. During their visit, they dropped by city hall to pick up some pointers. Rick Page, the city’s director of legislative services, said all the visitors were finance and taxation staff from the city of Beijing, and they came to learn about finance and tax systems. “We have an agreement with the city of Beijing,” he said. “We are one of the very few small cites to have this kind of an agreement.” The delegation, which was in town from Oct. 13 to 15, also attended a banquet in their honour and took a tour of both the city and a tour of the Justice Institute of B.C. “It was a very tight schedule,” said Paul Lam, the city’s deputy director of foreign relations. “After this they went to the U.S.” According to Lam, the delegation was from Dongcheng, which merged with the Chongwen District of Beijing in July. “They would like to know what we can offer in our city,” he said. “They feel quite happy and satis-
fied with what we arranged.” Mayor Wayne Wright said the delegation came to see the city’s systems for dealing with taxation, grants, capital and operating costs and utilities. “How this will help us, this is municipality to municipality,” he said. “When we have business people coming from any part of China, we will be able to say we are working with that group.” Wright said two groups of business people from China will be visiting New Westminster in the coming weeks. “What we are wanting is to keep the relations open so when the investors come here we can say, this is what we have shown them, this is what we are going to do, this is what we would like you to do,” he said. Wright believes New Westminster has been “tested” by the contacts it has been developing in China in the past few years and is now poised very well to benefit from those relationships. The City of New Westminster had signed a memorandum of understanding with Chongwen District in the Beijing province of China, an agreement that touches on cultural, tourism, sports and municipal ties. Page said the visit is “essentially is the first step to establish some more permanent ties” with an area that the city has already signed a memorandum of understanding with.
Larry Wright/THE RECORD
Out for Justice: Program director Glenn Hocking talks to a delegation from the Dongcheng district of Beijing at the Justice Institute of B.C. The delegation spent time in the city last week. “China is evolving,” Page said. “They are doing it very quickly from what we have seen. They are trying to keep up with that evolution at a government level.” New Westminster city council recently approved the formation of an international relations task force, which will help establish some policies and procedures
related to the city’s ties with foreign cities. In addition to some long-term sister city relationships in Japan, the Philippines and China, New Westminster has been pursuing friendship city agreements and various memorandums of understanding with cities in China. Page said the city believes its
relationships with foreign cities and districts have the opportunity of creating economic development and cultural initiatives, and bringing foreign investment into the city. “We are exploring all of that now,” he said. “We agreed to sign this agreement. We can see a lot of potential with Beijing.”

Mosaic nation: Settlement workers Daisy Johal and Hargurjeet Sekhon help newly arrived students and families adjust to Canadian life.
Helping hands for new Canadians School district’s settlement workers help students and families adjust to Canada
BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER
The school district’s manager of multicultural services uses the story of an Afghani family to describe how settlement workers in schools help new students and their families adjust to life in Canada. There were five or six children in the family - the two oldest girls had some education, but the younger children had none when they came to this country, Hargurjeet Sekhon explained. The refugee family needed help to get their children settled in school – the youngest, who had a terminal illness, could not sit still during class. The oldest daughter had mental health issues and was in and out of hospital. The family was living in a cramped

A settlement worker helped the family access housing, medical care, school counselling and parenting classes for the mother. That family is an extreme example of the needs that some new immigrants arrive with, but their circumstances illustrate the various ways in which settlement workers help. The workers are “one-stop referral” shop for school and community programs for students and their families, Sekhon explained. “It’s a way of making them feel welcome, telling them we are there to help them. It’s not just about jobs, schools,” Sekhon said. Settlement workers were introduced in 10 Metro Vancouver school districts in 2007. The federal government pays for

Become the hero of your own life story HEALTHWISE
DR. DAVIDICUS WONG
ost of us would say we don’t need any more drama in our lives, yet we love to see it all around us. Only the most saintly among us will cover their ears when coworkers or classmates promise the latest gossip. We are drawn into the fictional worlds of literature, television, theatre and cinema. We vicariously live the adventures of our heroes and heroines as they struggle to achieve their goals, make their relationships work and find love. Compared to fiction, real life can seem mundane – but it doesn’t have to be. Real life is drama, and you are the hero and protagonist in the story of your life. You have your own goals – some you still pursue, some you have abandoned. You have your own relationship issues – with your parents, friends, siblings, co-workers, classmates and partners, and throughout your life you seek love – from others and in your own heart. We play a variety of roles in real life, and our
roles change as we change and the cast of characters change. In much of our lives, we are performing. Who is the real you? Who is the playwright? What role do you play in the writing of your life story? How often do you sit back and watch in the audience, thinking you are not in the story? Do you just walk through your role day after day, without reflection or deliberation – your daily routine just as it is, wearing the same clothes, saying the same things, hanging out in the same places, listening to the same music and watching the same shows? Have you typecast yourself and lost your zest for your role? Whose fault is that? The director? The playwright? Are you stuck in your costume, thinking you can’t change it? Have you ever wondered how everyone else on the stage and in your life would react today if you acted out of character or if your character just evolved? What if you became the protagonist in your own life and took over the stage instead of playing the minor supportive role in everyone else’s story? Could you assume the role of the hero and change the trajectory of the plot? Would the changes you bring to your role enhance
the subplots around you, making the drama of others on the stage more comedic than mundane, more uplifting than tragic? Look at your life – the drama, the pathos, the backstory, the complication of roles. Can you rewrite your own backstory – reconceive your past with a fresh point of view, with the perspective of experience and the wisdom of years, and in so doing, reconceive yourself? What can you change in your own character? It can be as simple as changing the way you walk on stage – how you carry yourself in the world, your wardrobe, your posture, your dialogue and your confidence. An actor can play many roles. Don’t get stuck in a role that is not your role of a lifetime. You are coauthor of your own life. You can be the hero who makes a positive difference in the lives you can touch. Take control of your place on the stage. Be present, be responsible, and be heroic. So when the curtain comes down, you will have earned a standing ovation.

College ﬁrst in Canada to win sign interpreter program award Douglas College is the first post-secondary institution in Canada to win a North America-wide award presented to sign language interpreter programs for their contributions to the field. Douglas’s Program of Sign Language Interpretation was given the 2010 Video Relay Service Interpreter Education Program Award of Excellence by Sorenson Communications. The annual award is given to an interpreter education program that is making a meaningful contribution by expanding curriculum and responding to the everincreasing demand for interpreters.
“It’s incredible,” says Jan Carrie, dean of child, family and community studies. “This is an award of excellence for all of North America, and to get an award of this calibre says a lot for our program.” Cheryl Palmer, coordinator of the Douglas College sign language interpretation program, says the award reflects the program’s uniqueness and dedication to its students. “Our program has been fortunate over the last 20 years because we have been the beneficiary of extensive support and encouragement from the local deaf and interpreting communities,” Palmer said.

The fear of falling and how to ﬁght it KEEPING FIT SHAUN KARP
hen you’re young, a tiny trip over a rogue electrical cord or a stumble on the bottom stair is no big deal – a bit of dust on your knee or a harmless bruise on your wrist. But for older adults, it’s a very real fear. Falling is the greatest cause of injury death among adults 65 and older. It’s estimated that one in every three people in this age group will experience a fall each year. While about half of these falls cause only minor injuries, about two per cent are fatal. Moreover, some have estimated that more than 50 per cent of older adults who break a hip from falling will die within one year. The fear of falling in itself causes great anxiety among many older adults. Elderly people who have
fallen once often develop an intense fear of falling again and limit their activity as a result. This not only lessens their quality of life, but the decrease in daily activities will actually make a fall more likely for these men and women. A fall, or the fear of a fall, often leads to inactivity, which leads to weakness, which in a cruel twist of irony leads to a greater risk of falling. There are plenty of ways to reduce the risk of falling, while still enjoying a high quality of life. The first step is to get checked out. If you’re noticing you have trouble walking, it could be due to weak leg muscles or poor balance. But there may be other factors involved as well, and it’s important to make sure your physician is aware of any struggles you are dealing with. Difficulty walking could be a symptom of a specific medical issue, like arthritis or other joint diseases, dementia, stroke, anemia, Parkinson’s disease, or muscle and bone diseases, to name a few. If you are suffering from one of these
conditions, it’s important your physician knows so they are better equipped to deal with both your difficulty walking and the underlying medical issue. You should also discuss any medications with your physician, even the ones that are available over the counter. Some have side effects, like dizziness, drowsiness or disorientation, which can increase the risk of falling. If halting these medications isn’t an option, taking them in the evening before bed can help reduce that risk. Your eyes need regular care, too. If your vision is blurry, you’re more likely to misstep, trip or accidentally run into an object. Seeing an optometrist every year will ensure your eyeglass prescriptions are up to date and that any other visual restrictions, like glaucoma or cataracts, are treated. Make sure you consult your health-care professionals, and remember that they’re there to help keep you safe and strong. Shaun Karp is a certified personal trainer. See www. karpfitness.com.

Hyacks beat Mt. Doug Rams New West’s win ﬁrst on the ﬁeld; 2-1 in conference
Fond farewell to ‘Caps
BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER
BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER
It may have been their second win on the official record but it was the New Westminster Hyacks first win on the field. The Hyacks went to 25 on the season and 2-1 in their conference with a 35-24 win over the visiting Mt. Douglas Rams on Friday afternoon. The Hyacks secured their first win a week before with a default when the West Vancouver Highlanders team folded. There was no doubt on Friday which was the better team as the Hyacks got a 204-yard rushing effort from James Belgrave, 400 yards in total on the ground and two touchdown receptions from Regan Eberding to Jeremy Wilson, putting away the Victoria-based opponents. “I’m very proud of these guys,” said Hyacks head coach Farhan Lalji. “They have stayed positive and worked hard, and it finally paid off against a quality opponent. “I’m happy for the kids, happy they got a win because their attitude, their preparation in practice since the (49-0) Fox loss has been very good. “Our kids came out extremely focused and hungry. Our line was very good so the offense consistently moved the ball all day, and our defense made big plays at key times.” The Hyacks got off to a great start, with Belgrave going 37 yards on the first play from scrimmage to put the Hyacks up 7-0. But Belgrave was the

Ramming one home: James Belgrave, with ball, became the ﬁfth Hyack to ever have 200 rushing yards in a game on Friday during New Westminster’s 35-24 home win over the Mt. Douglas Rams of Victoria. goat on the Hyacks’ next possession, the ball going to the Rams, who took the lead 8-7 after a touchdown and two-point conversion. Belgrave made amends with the Hyacks’ next TD, a three-yard scamper and a successful two-point conversion. The Hyacks extended the lead with Eberding’s TD passes to Wilson, from 26 yards and then 33 yards out, before a late secondquarter TD by Manraj Bains – sandwiched around another Mt. Douglas TD – made it 35-16 Hyacks at the half. The Rams scored the only TD in the second half, with all three TDs followed by two-point conversions. “James played real hard and made people miss,” said Lalji. “It also had a lot
to do with how well our (offensive) line played and how our backs were able to open up lanes for James.” Lalji said the Hyacks base offence has three main plays and while teams will try to take away one or two of those plays, they can’t take away all three. While running back Ian Henderson had a great game two weeks ago against Kelowna and quarterback Regan Eberding is getting better and more mature with every snap, the Rams shut them down on Friday, leaving the stage wide open for Belgrave. “We took what they gave us and what they gave us was James,” said Lalji. Eberding had perhaps the most efficient game in recent Hyacks history, run-
ning for 78 yards on 14 carries and going two-forthree passing for 59 yards and two touchdowns. “Regan gets better and better every week,” said Lalji. “He gives us a chance to win in every game. ... The maturity I’ve seen in him is that earlier in the season, he got excited when something was wide open and then he’d miss the pass. ... Now, he doesn’t get as excited and he makes the play.” Other notable performances from the Hyacks included Bains finishing with 10 carries for 49 yards and the one touchdown, Henderson with six carries for 40 yards, and Wilson with two receptions for 59 yards and two TDs. Overall, the Hyacks finished with 400 yards on the
ground and 459 total offensive yards. The Hyacks had 271 yards rushing and 330 total yards of offense in the first half alone. Defensively, Henderson had 11 tackles, including two sacks, while Clay Alexson had four tackles and a sack to lead the defensive line. As nice as the winning streak is, Lalji knows the road ahead won’t be easy. “We were far from perfect with four lost fumbles and will need to be better against a physical Notre Dame team,” said Lalji. “Second through fifth in our conference is wide open this year. The four teams involved are quite even.” The Hyacks play Notre Dame at 5 p.m. at Burnaby Lake West this Friday.
Royal City resident wins six medals at Games
New Westminster resident Klazina Noort took home six medals from the B.C. Senior Games, held in the Comox Valley and Campbell River in mid-September. Noort won two golds, three silvers and bronze in the sprint events.
Burnaby record setter
Burnaby senior Norm Lesage now has six Canadian seniors track records. Lesage’s most recent accomplishment came at the B.C. Seniors Games in the Comox Valley in September, as part of the 4X200 relay team that recorded a Canadian record time of 2:40.99.
He also set outdoor records this summer in the 100 metres, 16.11 seconds on July 10 and the 200 metres, 34.37 seconds on July 19. He set three Canadian indoor seniors records in March, with a 9.92 time in the 60 metres, 34.86 seconds in the 200 metres and 2:40.99 in the 4X200 metre relay.
Split bouts for boxer
Burnaby boxer Robert Couzens split a pair of bouts out east. On Sept. 24, in Montreal, Couzens defeated Marcos Osorio by a unanimous 3-0 decision. Two days later, Couzens lost to Osorio via a split 2-1 decision.
Next on the docket for Couzens is the B.C. senior provincials on Nov. 6 and 7 and then the Canadian senior championships in Quebec City from Dec. 7 to 12. “This will be the first time that Robert competes at the senior championships, after winning the Canadian cadet and youth championships three consecutive years,” said Sobral.
No series for Morneau
New Westminster slugger Justin Morneau will have to wait another year for the World Series. Morneau’s Minnesota Twins were swept in three games by the
New York Yankees, but Morneau wasn’t a part of that sweep after being sidelined since July. Morneau took batting practice and ran some light drills with the Twins on Sept. 30, but was told by team doctors in early October that Morneau will not play again this season. Morneau was hitting .345 with 18 homers and 56 RBI on July 7 when he was kneed in the head accidentally by Toronto Blue Jays second baseman John McDonald. The Twins won the American League Central crown. email@example.com
The Vancouver Whitecaps played their final game at Swangard Stadium on Sunday night, dropping a 2-0 extra-time decision to the Puerto Rico Islanders in the second round of the USSF D-2 playoffs. The Whitecaps, who drew 0-0 on Oct. 14 in Puerto Rico, were favoured to advance but were undone by a former Whitecap, Nicholas Addlery, who came off the Islanders bench and scored both extra-time goals for the win. Addlery, a ‘Cap in 2008, scored the decisive goal in the 113th minute when he converted a rebound of a Richard Martinez pass past ‘Caps goalie Jay Nolly. With the Whitecaps pressing for an equalizer, Nolly came up for a corner kick, but was stranded when the Islanders Sandy Gbandi found a streaking Addlery on the break. Addlery rounded Nolly at the halfway line before racing forward and slotting the ball into an empty net from 35 yards out for his eighth goal of the season. The Whitecaps, who beat the Portland Timbers in the first round of the playoffs, were undone by their inability to hit the back of the net. After scoring twice in the first 13 minutes against Portland, the Whitecaps went 377 minutes – almost four full playoff games – without scoring another goal. The Islanders now go on to meet the NASL Conference winners Carolina RailHawks in the final after the RailHawks beat the Montreal Impact 2-0 at home. The Whitecaps now look forward to next season, their inaugural season in Major League Soccer. The squad will start taking shape in November with the MLS expansion draft. In March 2011, the Whitecaps will begin MLS play at Empire Field on the grounds of the Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver. Later in 2011, the Whitecaps will then move to a newly-renovated B.C. Place in downtown Vancouver.

Local martial arts head takes Canadian team to world championships BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Dragan Jovanovic has made good use of his 5,000 square foot training facility at 7673 Sixth St. in South Burnaby. When he’s not training security officers for his Canadian Marshals Security Services company, he’s running martial arts classes at his Total Kombat Training Academy for more than 60 students. And now those students have something to shoot for because Jovanovic has been asked to help assemble the Canadian team for the 2010 International Sport Karate and Kickboxing Association team for the Amateur World Championships, to be held Nov. 2-7 in Almeria, Spain. “I’m planning to take 20-plus athletes,” said Jovanovic. “They have divisions for competitors as young as six and all the way up to seniors’ division.” There are seven different divisions at the world amateur championships, including forms, weapons, light contact sparring, semi contact sparring, full contact, freestyle rules kickboxing and Thai boxing. Jovanovic is planning to compete himself, in the middleweight full contact and mixed martial arts divisions. He currently holds a fourth-degree black belt in Shotokan karate and aikido/aiki-jiu-jitsu. Former member of a military police and special forces unit, Jovanovic is a certified security training instructor for the province through the Justice Institute in New
Westminster. The former European full-contact champion has run Total Kombat for the last two years and got the job organizing fighters because of an old Vancouver Island contact. “I used to live in Victoria and I met up with Wally Petrovic, who was named as the official recruiter and team leader for ISKA Team Canada,” said Jovanovic. “Wally asked me to help put together a team with people from the Lower Mainland, and I agreed.” Jovanovic has lived in the Lower Mainland for the past 11 years, and his security business has continued to grow. His fitness business is also growing, with cardio kickboxing and full body training amongst the most popular programs offered in his Edmonds-area facility. The amateur championships allow participants a chance to compete against the best in the world, but participants have to pay their own way, meaning Petrovic and Jovanovic are busy trying to line up sponsors. “We are looking for companies and organizations who want to help us out,” said Jovanovic. “This is an event that will give the competitors valuable experience as we try to groom more fighters.” For more information, contact Jovanovic by e-mail at email@example.com.
