The background

E

wo of the 14 race days cut from Fraser Downs’ 2010 season have been restored. An Aug. 13 letter from Derek Sturko, chair of the BC Horse Racing Industry Management Committee, announced Great Canadian Gaming was chopping 14 days out of the track’s season between Oct. 15 and Dec. 31. The decision came as attendance and wagers at the Cloverdale pacer track continue to fall. On Thursday, Sturko told the Now an agreement has been reached to add four additional race days – Oct. 1, 2, 8 and 9 – while cutting Dec. 17 and 19 from the schedule. “Those days in December aren’t productive, they’re too close to Christmas,” Sturko said. “So we’re adding four very productive days in October and removing two unproductive days in December.”

raser Downs in Cloverdale has been in the news this week as Great Canadian Gaming announced it’s cutting a dozen days out of this year’s harness racing season. The move isn’t popular with many who work at the track, the grooms, drivers and others who depend on Fraser Downs for their living. Those backstretch people have told us what they fear the reduced season could mean. Great Canadian has told us why they believe the cuts are necessary. So has the head of a committee formed to re-jig the ailing harness racing industry in an attempt to save it from obilivion. The only voice missing from the discussion is that of Chuck Keeling, whose family sold Fraser Downs to Great Canadian back in 2004 for a cool $40 million.

ight years ago, Surrey began to buzz with rumours a casino – and slot machines – might be coming to the city. Surrey Coun. Bob Bose let the cat out of the bag back in October 2002 when he leaked to the Now details about a secret council meeting held earlier that month to talk about a casino on the city-owned Cloverdale Fairgrounds. When Bose ignored the province’s request for secrecy and spilled the beans, he launched the controversy that still hounds Fraser Downs and its slot machines. The latest wrinkle in this saga is last week’s revelation that the Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, which bought Fraser Downs in March 2005, has decided to dramatically cut the number of race days at the track in order to save money.

THE BACKGROUND

‘Crisis’ requires teamwork, Blank says

A history of unrealized dreams  continued from page 1

 continued from page 1 Great Canadian also asked to have all of its 2011 race days rescinded by provincial gaming officials while it tries to find a way to hold races without losing money. Sturko, an assistant deputy minister of Housing and Social Development and head of the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch, said he believes the suspension of the 2011 season is only temporary. “It is our belief there will be racing next year at Fraser Downs.” Sturko also said Great Canadian has dropped the idea of splitting next year’s racing between B.C. and Alberta to reduce operating expenses at Fraser Downs. “It has not been well received by horsemen in either province,” he said. Talks with industry stakeholders will resume today (Friday) in an attempt to come up with new ideas to save racing. Sturko repeated his belief there will be racing next year at Fraser Downs, but said he thinks the number of race days will be reduced. “I suspect it will be a shorter season. How much shorter I couldn’t say.” Great Canadian spokesman Howard Blank said his company has poured millions into racing at Fraser Downs, but attendance is still declining. “If no one comes to the race track, we go the way of the dinosaur. It’s not just Fraser Downs, it’s the whole industry. We’re in a crisis situation and we’ve got to pull up our bootstraps and work together to find a solution.” tcolley@thenow newspaper.com

OUR VIEW

He insisted he wouldn’t sell. 49 days after opening, he sold.  continued from page 1

Keeling was Fraser Down’s general manager and point man as the track aggressively lobbied Victoria and the city for the right to run slots on the premises. Throughout the 18 months it took to get all the approvals needed to open a casino at Fraser Downs, Keeling’s message never varied: We need the cash slot machines will generate to save harness racing at Fraser Downs. A casino with slot machines will pull in the crowds and the cash they drop can be used to boost purses at the track to draw the top horses and drivers we can’t get now. That was Keeling’s mantra: With slots, we’re good, without slots, we’re dead. And he was persuasive. He got city council on board. He got local business on board. He got the public on board. He got slots. It took two years of lobbying to get it done, but in December 2004, the doors opened and the first gamblers walked in. Several times during those two years, Keeling was asked if Fraser Downs would

go on the block if a casino and slots were allowed there. Each time Keeling said it wouldn’t happen. In November 2003, when Keeling reached a tentative agreement with the city on a long-term lease, he said, “We are not selling. We are not for sale.” In December 2003, when council approved the casino and slots at Fraser Downs, Keeling said, “We’ve been here 27 years and we’re looking forward to being here another 27 years.” Forty-nine days after the casino opened, we were told Fraser Downs had been sold. That’s two promises Keeling made that haven’t been kept. The slots haven’t improved things for the racers and Fraser Downs was for sale after all. The Now tried a number of times to talk to Keeling. We had some questions about all this, but he declined to comment, referring us to Great Canadian’s media man, Howard Blank, instead. Blank gave us some useful information. Still, it would have been good to hear what Keeling had to say. We wanted it from the horse’s mouth, you see.

The horse racing industry has been losing ground to casinos and online gambling for years. Fewer and fewer people are coming to the track and revenues are down. Way down. The push for slots at Fraser Downs, however, was pitched as a way to save racing by using some of the revenue they generated to increase race purses. Richer purses, the argument went, would bring better horses and drivers to Surrey and that would bring more fans – and more gamblers – to the track. It hasn’t worked out that way. The track belonged to Orangeville Raceway back then, a company owned by the Keeling family. Chuck Keeling was Fraser Downs’ general manager and the pitchman tasked with whipping up support for the casino. He did his job well. Keeling got a lot of backing for his bid. Politicians, including some who not many years earlier were slamming those devil slots in rhetoric reminiscent of The Music Man, got on board. Business joined the parade, especially the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce, led by former Socred cabinet minister Bill Reid. Before long, the lobby for slots in Fraser Downs was a force to be reckoned with. Once the province dumped its ban on slots at racetracks in 2003, negotiations among provincial lottery officials, city hall and Fraser Downs really got going. In May 2003, city council approved the casino. Nearly a year later, the city and Fraser Downs signed a long-term lease agreement that cut Surrey in for a share of the take, estimated at between $3 million and $5 million a year. With all the regulatory pieces in place, Orangeville went to work on a $25-million facelift of the old clubhouse to accommodate the casino and on Nov. 3, 2004, the doors opened. Forty-nine days later, it was announced that Fraser Downs – and its 420 slots – had been sold to the Great Canadian Casino Company for $40 million. The promise of a racing industry rejuvenated by a transfusion of slot machine cash was never realized. Attendance and wagers on the pacers continues to fall even today. Great Canadian and the B.C. Standardbred Association signed a four-year deal in 2007 that extended the season by two months. It was supposed to bring stability to the game and draw more punters. That hasn’t happened. The future of horse racing at Fraser Downs is more uncertain now than ever before. The slots haven’t turned back time. tcolley@thenownewspaper.com

Surrey resident Amy Waqar Ahmad Jan REID Now Contributor spoke to his parents on July 29 and they told him there was a flood warning in their city in Pakistan. “When the whole world knew about the flood, I knew one day earlier,” he said. When Jan attempted to contact his parents the next day he could not get through to them. He didn’t find out if his parents were safe for three long hours, he said. His elder brother called him and told him what happened – his parents had been evacuated from their home during the flood and were now in Islambad. Their home was washed away. They had been right in the middle of the flash floods. The country experienced the worst torrential rain it’s seen in decades, ravaging the country. Jan said he felt he needed to help the others who had been devasted by this disaster. Being involved in the community is part of his job, he added. He is a settlement counsellor at Progressive Intercultural Community Services Society, a not-for-profit group located in Surrey and Vancouver. They work with new immigrants. Jan started fundraising with some friends, collecting money outside of a market in Newton. They collected $5,000. He knew he had to do more.

Volunteers and community leaders like Waqar Ahmad Jan, Farrukh Alam and Kalwinder Sanghera come together for a one-day radio telethon at RED FM to raise money for flood victims. Now, a number of PakistaniCanadian community groups are collaborating in their relief efforts to support those affected by the floods. Jan started it all, said Farrukh Alam with the Pakistan-Canada Association. Together with Jan, the PakistanCanada Association, the BC Muslim Association, the Pakistani Canadian Cultural Association and the Pakistani Canadian Women Society are all raising money, and all the funds collected will go to the Human Concern International. To date they have collectively raised approximately $100,000. Jan said they are shooting for $800,000. The groups ask the community to help however they can. No amount is too small, Jan said.

While all the various organizations are collecting money, it’s all going to the same place. If you would like to make a donation, visit pakcan. com. The website was created by the Pakistan-Canada Association. A tax deductible receipt can be provided. In separate relief efforts, the BMO Bank of Montreal announced on Wednesday that it wants to support the Red Cross in its flood relief efforts in Pakistan. Anyone wanting to make donations can do so at any of its branches across Canada from Aug. 20 to Sept. 17. The Canadian government has announced it plans to spend as much as $33 million in supporting the victims. The United Nations has asked the global community for $460 million.

❚ NEWS ❚COMMUNITY/Surrey Crime Prevention Society fundraiser set for Sept. 17

Group needs your support to keep preventing crime in Surrey Come dressed in Amy jeans, cowboy hats, REID Now Contributor boots and big, big belt buckles. It’s the Surrey Crime Prevention Society’s first fundraiser, and you guessed it – it has a western theme. The fundraiser is on Sept. 17 at the Sullivan Community Hall. The night will be chalk full of entertainment, provided by community-based group Circle of Friends. There will also be a silent auction. “It’s an opportunity for

G R O W I N G

people to mix and mingle and have a good time,” said Gary Tymoschuk, treasurer of the Surrey Crime Prevention Society (SCPS). The SCPS is a non-profit organization providing crime prevention and safety programs for the community in traffic safety, child and family safety, public awareness, business crime prevention and employee safety. Some of its programs include Anti-Graffiti, Safe Riders Bicycle Rodeo (designed for schools and the community to teach children

F O O D

A N D

about bike safety) and Surrey Citizen’s Crime Watch Patrol, in which volunteers conduct patrols at night. SCPS also has a Fatal Vision program, which uses goggles to mimic the effects of alcohol, like visual distortion, distance perception and more. And all of these are just a sampling of its programs. SCPS is a volunteer organization that relies on donations and grants. “It’s increasingly difficult,” Tymoschuk said, to find enough

money. He said he would love if the community as a whole would rally around them. “When I say community I’m not necessarily talking about the City of Surrey, we’re grateful for that, but I mean the other people; individuals, businesses, organizations, who learn more about us say, ‘Wow, this is great, I don’t mind chipping in a few dollars here and there’ or come out to these kinds of fundraisers.” Tymoschuk said it’s become more challenging to find fund-

ing because the city continues to grow. “I just saw a news story on TV the other night about how we are still the fastest growing city and yet we haven’t really been able to keep up with that growth,” he said. “So we’re looking for help to develop these programs and just continue our work in the community.” The fundraiser is on Sept. 17 at the Sullivan Community Hall. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased by calling 604-502-8555.

❚ NEWS ❚SUMMER/Weather has cooled, so let’s remember...

Forget the newsroom, I’m off to the pool(s) W

hen the heat waves Amy inevitably hit, REID Now Contributor we all complain. Funny, because we’ve been wishing for heat all summer. But, nonetheless, we complain about the heat. It’s hot, we are exhausted and all we want to do is find the largest body of cold water and immerse ourselves in it. Usually, this is not a concern for me. I hop into the van, beeline it to my mom’s house and hang out in her pool. Or I head to one of the many beaches or lakes nearby. You see, I’m a freelancer, which means that I typically work from home. But on Tuesday, I found myself working in the newsroom at the Now newspaper. I admit that I, too, was complaining about the recent heat. But as I sat in the wonderfully air conditioned office, I found myself missing the heat. I daydreamed adoringly about my mom’s pool. How refreshing, how soothing, how fun. Imagine my luck when my editor suggested I head out to some local pools for the afternoon. Didn’t have to ask me twice. So off I went. First stop was the Kwantlen pool. As I approached, the pool looked deserted. When I got closer I saw that

there were two people in the pool and a few others standing around – turns out some lessons were just ending. Matthew Rowe, 8, was wrapping up his lesson for the day and he was sure having fun. His teacher was showing Matthew how to do a backstroke. He was also teaching Matthew how to swim freestyle, with his arms propelling him forward. Matthew was learning how to go faster. “Can you be a shark and pretend to get me?” he shouted, chuckling (there’s nothing like imagining a huge carnivorous creature chasing you to pump up your motivation). Next stop on my list was Bear Creek Park pool. It was quite a different picture when I got there. There was a long lineup of people waiting for the pool to open. What timing – I arrived five minutes before a public swim started. People in the lineup waited patiently, towels in hand as the blazing sun beat down on them. You could see sweat beads glistening on the heads of many. Some looked tired, others frustrated. As soon as the gates opened everyone piled in. Very quickly, the pool’s limit of 150 people was reached. Why is this pool so popular? Let head lifeguard Rachel Frick answer that.

Rachel Frick, left, is the head lifeguard at the Bear Creek swimming pool. She is holding a regular swimming student, three-year-old Caleb Larter on Tuesday afternoon. ❚PHOTO/Amy Reid

“It’s one of the biggest pools in Surrey,” he told me. “It gets pretty busy here.” Babies were getting in the water with their parents, older kids were jumping off the diving board – repeatedly. Many parents were soaking up the sun on the pool deck, watching their kids out of the corner of their eyes. Young teens were flirtatiously throwing each other around. That lineup of frustrated, sweaty people turned into a pool full of laughing people. In the water was three-year-old Caleb Larter and mom Shannon. He’s a regular to the pool and comes for lessons, mom told me. “They are amazing here,” said Shannon. “Before he started here you couldn’t even get him in the water.” Last stop – Sunnyside pool. I figured I should head to one location I had never been to. Sunnyside is in South Surrey, just off King George Boulevard on

26th Avenue. This pool was quite busy, but small and shared the same carefree atmosphere with the other pools I had visited. I learned something today: did you know that all the outdoor pools in Surrey are free? I didn’t know this before embarking on my summer-time assignment. The head lifeguard at Bear Creek Park pool, Frick, told me that the Lions Rotary Club built the pools and gave them to the City of Surrey on the condition that they would always remain free to the public. So there you have it. The pools are free and you have quite a few to choose from. Some are small, some are big, some are quiet, some are very busy. But all of them provide a much-needed break from the heat. And this concludes my afternoon – which was unexpectedly full of sunshine. For a full list of Surrey’s outdoor pools, visit www.surrey.ca.

Do you have somebody you would like to thank? Or maybe something you want to get off your chest? Send your rose or rotten tomato to edit@thenownewspaper.com

❚ Rotten tomatoes to people who make comment to others, in public, when a child is not “minding” their parent, or when a child is having a “melt-down.” Ask before passing judgment and making rude comments. Our family was blessed with an incredible child, through adoption, who was exposed to a number of substances, including “recreational drugs” and alcohol, while in their birth mother’s womb – the baby never asked for brain damage. It amazes me, however, the number of ignorant, inconsiderate comments that are made when a child becomes overstimulated in public. Listening to your conversations regarding your recent girls’ night out (Oh, yes, I did notice that you were pregnant), I hope your unborn child will be born healthy. Think before you drink and speak! ❚ Beautiful red roses to those caring people who water street, park, school and private trees. The trees beautify the neighbourhood and help keep the air fresh. Others who don’t water Surrey city trees get to see sick and dead trees. The city does water its trees with a water tank truck and taxes would be higher if caring people – who are team players and are proud of their neighbourhoods – didn’t pitch in. ❚ Roses to our neighbour who collected three bags of garbage on Guildford Drive that have been strewn there for the last year. The city cuts the grass and cuts the bush but leaves all the garbage behind. We can now walk our dogs up the street without wondering what they are sniffing at. Thank you, from a very grateful neighbour. ❚ Yukky rotten tomatoes to the folks at the car rental company on 72nd Avenue who

damaged my Mustang car while it was in their care and refuse to accept any responsibility! ❚ Roses to the nice flag lady who stopped traffic when she didn’t have to so I could make a left-hand turn off my street. Thanks! ❚ A wheelbarrow full of rotten tomatoes to the guy at the bus stop who asked my son, who is 11, if he wanted a cigarette. We were just walking home from the Blueberry Festival and you probably thought you were being funny but you put a damper on a good day. Grow up! ❚ A truckload of rotten tomatoes to Diamond Parking for giving me a ticket when I went to Surrey City Central to shop. I parked in the parking lot (Surrey Place Mall) went to my bank, did my shopping and came out of Zellers to find I had a ticket on my windshield due to the fact that I left the mall parking lot to go across the street. It seems Diamond Parking does not respect the environment, as it was less of a carbon footprint to walk across the street than to drive my car. But Diamond’s stand is: drive to the bank and then drive to the mall parking lot – who cares about the environment? ❚ Gerber daisies to my beautiful best friend. Sorry I’ve been grumpy. Do you forgive me? ❚ Rotten tomatoes to the stores that believe in recycling and ask you to bring your own bags. Then as you leave the store, store security asks, “may I check your bags – this bag was not a recycled bag from our store.” Keep your sales slip handy so you can show what you have purchased.

NOTICE

WATER SPRINKLING REGULATIONS JUNE 1 TO SEPTEMBER 30 From June 1 to September 30 sprinkling of lawns at times other than those listed below is prohibited. These measures are being taken to conserve our water resource so adequate amounts of water are available for all purposes. Any complaints received, or observed violations, may result in fines being imposed under Surrey By-law No. 12508. When you may sprinkle your lawn: DAYS:

EVEN numbered addresses may sprinkle on Wednesdays and Saturdays ODD numbered addresses may sprinkle on Thursdays and Sundays

TIME:

(on permitted days) 4:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Most lawns only need about 2.5 centimeters of water per week (depth of a tuna can). This amount can easily be applied by sprinkling once a week. When hosing or pressure washing outdoor surfaces, or washing boats or motor vehicles, water hoses must be equipped with an automatic shut-off device. 1. Remember to adjust your automatic irrigation systems. To minimize peak period water demands, we recommend irrigation system operation, on one of your permitted days, between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. 2. Multi unit developments are permitted to sprinkle according to the development address, not the individual unit numbers.

4. Watering of flowers, shrubs, trees and vegetable gardens is not affected by the regulations during this stage of the restrictions. In an effort to conserve water, you may want to use a watering can or a hose with a spring loaded or other automatic shut-off nozzle, and water in the morning. The above regulations are to remain in effect until further notice. Your cooperation will help save water and reduce the risk of more severe restrictions.

What’s for Lunch?

As the lazy days of summer come to an end, most people are preparing to return to a more structured family schedule. This makes it a great time to change old routines that will benefit your health, your pocketbook, and the environment. When the kids return to school and you return to your normal workday routine, it usually means packing lunches to keep everyone full of energy throughout the day. Dedicate a few minutes to planning out your packed lunches, and you’ll be surprised to see how quickly that ‘brown bag’ lunch can turn green! The small, daily choices about what you put into your lunch bag can add up to a dramatic reduction in waste even over one week. Follow these rules of thumb while planning your lunches to do your part to help save the planet - one lunch bag at a time!

Aim for no waste.

With all of our hectic schedules these days it is no surprise to see stores filled with ‘grab-and-go’ fare. While these little containers and bags are convenient, they can also pile up in our landfills. By using reusable containers you can easily make your lunch into a ‘zero-waste’ meal!

The Adolescent Day Treatment Program has been enhancing and beautifying Surrey’s green spaces for over two years as a part of Surrey Parks, Recreation and Culture’s Friends of the Forest Program. The participants have been working tirelessly to remove garbage from the natural area greenbelts adjacent to Surrey Memorial Hospital. In addition to the greenbelt clean-ups, they have also removed invasive plants such as English ivy and Scotch broom from a variety of parks in the area, and completed several native tree and shrub plantings. The Adolescent Day Treatment Program (operated through the Fraser Health Authority) serves

Buy foods in bulk.

Buying your lunch-making supplies in large packages rather than singleserve sizes will save costs to you and the environment. Bulk products typically use less packaging than single-serve portioned items. This also allows you portion out the perfect amount for each appetite.

Buy local if possible.

Take advantage of the many local foods and food companies based in the lower Fraser Valley. The products you use in your lunch will have traveled shorter distances, meaning less fuel is consumed to get it to the store. And your taste buds will thank you; the food is more fresh and flavorful than food that has been shipped from far away. Follow these guidelines and even if your lunch ends up containing nothing green to eat it will turn out to be the greenest meal in your lunchroom. Bon appétit!

adolescents aged 13 to 18 who are experiencing psychiatric and sometimes family difficulties that negatively impact their ability to function academically, socially, and emotionally. The Friends of the Forest program offers an opportunity for the program’s participants to become engaged positively within their community, while learning new skills and fostering interests in park stewardship and restoration. To date over 75 youth have been actively involved in enhancing natural areas with the Adolescent Day Treatment Program’s Friends of the Forest group!

and I want to serve the best burger because I want to eat it too.” Red Robin in Guildford served up a Whiskey River Barbecue Burger that resulted in a table full of clean plates and a thirdplace finish while Morrison Café’s Whiskey Onion burger was one point back. The last finalist, White Spot’s Legendary Burger, was a distant and disappointing fifth. “All of the top four burgers

Want to make a burMichael BOOTH ger at home that ranks Staff Reporter with the best in the city? If so, the place to start is a small familyrun butcher shop in South Surrey. Operated by the husband and wife team of Al and Gaye Forbes, Ocean Park Fine Meats (12852 16th Ave.) is the supplier to two of the top four restaurants – Uli’s and Morrison Café – in the Now’s Best Burger in Town competition. “We really run quite a different business than your traditional butcher shop because we still hang our meat here,” Al Forbes said. “We’re one of only three butcher shops in B.C. who still hang their beef for a month. So the beef that the two restaurants get is dry-aged meat that has about 25 days of age on it.” The hanging process uses the bulk weight of the beef to stretch the meat out and also serves as a dehydrator. Between the dehydration and the stretching, the resulting product doesn’t have the rubbery texture found in typical manufactured ground beef. “Most ground beef is not aged more than three or four days before it is ‘mulched’ so it still retains 100 per cent of the water,” Forbes explained. “This meat can only be ground once before it turns to mush. With dry-aged beef, the meat can be ground two or three times. The meat is smooth without a lot of connective tissue. “The aging is truly the secret to the finished product. Of course the restaurants love it because there is no shrinkage. They

can weigh up a six-ounce patty before cooking and they know they’ll be serving a five-and-a-half ounce burger rather than a two-and-a-half ounce or three-ounce patty.” Best of all, the beef sold by Ocean Park Fine Meats is all Canadian grown and produced with no hormones or antibiotic residue. Forbes’ passion for his craft is infectious and the shop’s dedication to quality struck a note with burger contest winner Tyson Blume of Uli’s. “When I was looking for a supplier I went and saw Al and asked about his beef,” Blume recalls. “He said, ‘If you want to try it, just go across the street,’ and he pointed to Morrison Café. So I went over and had a burger there and came back and told Al I wanted him to provide our beef too.” According to Forbes, quality is something you can taste. More and more consumers are demanding fresh food, a trend that plays to his shop’s strengths. “It’s sort of a dying art, which is kind of disappointing from my point of view,” he said. “I really feel people can benefit from the goodness of the food they eat. Our ground beef is literally produced from scratch two or three times per day. It’s not produced in a factory and sent out where it can sit, by law, for up to five days before it has to be sold. In our shop it’s a matter of hours between production to the counter to your home. The difference is really quite dramatic.”

were really good,” said one of the judges. “They all could have won. It was really interesting to be a judge because each of them was very different, both in the burgers and the atmosphere at the restaurants. It was a lot of fun.” So what sets Uli’s apart? The winning burger is the creation of Blume and executive chef Ryan Bissell. Best known for its seafood, Uli’s also offers a variety of other items on its menu including

the eponymous Uli’s burger. It starts with a seven-ounce handmade patty of dry-aged beef that is so thick it retains a measure of pinkness in the middle. The patty is then topped with a slice of apple wood smoked cheddar and savoury bacon produced by the restaurant. The pork is soaked in brine for seven to 10 days before it is smoked, resulting in a one-of-a-kind bacon for the burger. Fresh butter lettuce from Mary’s Garden in South Surrey and handmade organic onion relish come next and the whole delicious combination is served on a potato bun. “Our mantra here is good, simple and fresh and our burger is created that same way,” Blume said. “It’s a normal burger – its got bacon, cheese, lettuce and a bun. It starts out straightforward but the cheese is apple wood smoked cheddar, the bacon is made in house – the ingredients put it over the top. “You don’t have to reinvent the wheel necessarily and sometimes I think restaurants put too many things into it to try and make it amazing. Just make the items as good as possible and that will speak to your customers.”

The landmark restaurant located at the north end of the pier in White Rock came out the winner among five finalists after a taste test by a panel of judges from the Now this week. The strip of restaurants lining the shore of Semiahmoo Bay in White Rock are famous for their seafood, but Uli’s creation makes it a must-stop location for burger lovers. “Down on the beach you have to have certain items and some chefs get upset about having to serve a burger and fish and chips,” said Uli’s owner Tyson Blume. “My opinion is there’s nothing wrong with serving those items, just make sure they are the best. Make them gourmet and make them better than anybody else.” Uli’s edged out defending champion Vera’s Burger Shack of Newton for top spot on the judge’s scorecards.

A summer of pool fuel, tides and Hoof Hearted “What on earth is pool fuel?” The question came via telephone from my wife as she was en route to our niece’s swimming lessons. The answer, of course, is a slurpee. Duh! Michael I shouldn’t be so hard BOOTH on her. I was just tapping into the vast store of knowledge of kids I have amassed — a couple of weeks’ worth to be exact. You see, this summer our household — the short census form reads two working adults and one snorting, snuffling bulldog — grew temporarily by one when our 10-year-old niece from Alberta came for a visit. We thought we had her stay all mapped out until business forced my wife to travel to Toronto for most of the two weeks I had booked off for vacation. So suddenly I was thrust into a situation worthy of a crappy Hollywood movie— stubborn male in his 40s with no parenting skills finds himself with a precocious little girl to take care of. Much hilarity ensues leading up to a snot and tears ending. Blah, blah, blah. As it turned out, however, the Mr. Mom thing was actually quite a hoot. I taught her

all the important stuff — squirrels are tree rats, hockey sticks are an essential tool when picking blackberries and the greatest racehorse of all time was the immortal nag Hoof Hearted (say it out loud — women roll their eyes at it but men and 10-year-olds of both genders revel in the wordplay). Silliness was not the only vein of knowledge we mined. I explained how photosynthesis and the competition for sunlight are a big reason why the trees in B.C. grow so tall with few lower branches; how the female pacific octopus lays one batch of eggs in her life and tends them until she dies (thanks BBC Life); and how the gravitational pull of the moon affects the tides on earth. She’s still somewhat skeptical about this last point, but like it or not, she already has a leg up on high school biology. The learning was not one-sided either. I learned some essential dos (pinky swears are more binding than any legal document, especially when accompanied by a cross-your-heart) and don’ts (telling her to check the microwave is not the best answer when she has misplaced her cherished stuffed doll). She taught me how crushed sidewalk chalk mixed with water creates a substance with a covering capacity to rival anything sold in the paint department at Home Depot; and that the Food Network has shows other than Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

Plus I now know most of the words to the Lion King song “Hakuna Matata.” It’s a philosophy that means no worries — apparently an offshoot of Rastafarianism. This four-and-a-half-foot tall Jiminy Cricket also had deeper impact on me. I endured renditions — complete with dance moves — of production numbers from Disney movies, survived a sleepover when a friend visited and discovered a new well of patience I didn’t know I had. More impressively, in three weeks I only dropped one naughty word in her presence — surely a miracle worthy of study by the dudes in the red robes at the Vatican. She left last weekend and her absence was felt immediately. Wet towels go directly onto towel racks instead of the floor, the dog has slept for three days straight and the PVR no longer is set to record Cake Boss. Without getting too sucky, we went through a whirlwind life-cycle — from no kids to instant family to just the two of us again — all in less than a month. So now we are, for lack of a better term, empty nesters — but without one important burden. Unlike most people our age, we don’t have to worry about the kid dropping out of college and moving into our basement with her deadbeat musician boyfriend. At least we hope not…

South Asian ‘propaganda’ column was waste of ink Asians. Are South Asians more violent, or dishonest than the rest of the greater community? I’m sure most are not and so my point is, Sandhu’s article was a waste or space and counterproductive. If she has something positive to say about someone or some group, fine, but to write an article that suggests all South Asians are by nature a particular way, and imply that the rest of us envy them, begrudge them and should learn from them, is to me both insulting, and condescending.

Daniel Allen Surrey

Yes, it sure does money-wise, as others have to pay higher taxes to pay for services, etc. they enjoy but do not pay for. As for the hard work she bragged about, this may be true; however, hard work may not always go along with quality. Yes, Ms. Sandhu, I also worked seven days a week many times and also worked 10-hour shifts. I also killed and cleaned chickens I bought for 40 cents to sell for a buck to supplement my $1.50 per hour wages. So please stop selling your standards and culture to us.

Pieter Spierenburg Surrey

Who does Sandhu think she is with her insulting column? Electric vehicles are fine but where will we get the power?

The Editor, Re: “South Asians value hard work,” the Now, Aug. 13. Harvinder Sandhu’s column is no more than an insult to those who built this country prior to our government opening up the Asian immigrant floodgate. Who does this think she is, trying to convince us to live like her fellow countrymen? This group is also very lucky that this country now provides benefits unheard of in their country of origin, mostly achieved by its original – mostly European – immigrants. I think this columnist has things mixed up when she goes into the details of living in multi-family homes giving them an advantage.

The Editor, It was not more than two or three years ago that the media was filled with stories about the coming age of electric vehicles. Scores of reports at the time spoke of designs for electric vehicles sitting on drawing boards and of early prototypes undergoing testing in the lab as technical hurdles were being overcome. Fast forward to the present and it seems what were once electric dreams are now showing up in communities everywhere for realworld road testing. This is very good news because it’s a sign that production models can’t be far behind. The question I have, though, is

where all the electricity to power these electric vehicles is going to come from? All of the electricity produced in this province is currently spoken for and we are reportedly importing a fair amount of electricity to fill the gap between production and demand. When a couple hundred thousand electric vehicles hit the streets of British Columbia’s urban areas, will we be ready with a suitable supply of clean, non-emitting electricity or will we be caught off guard and find ourselves having to import even more coal-fired electricity from outside this province to keep these clean electric vehicles running? If the transition to electric vehicles in this province is going to be successful, we need to make certain we have the clean electricity needed to power this revolution. If we don’t, we will be defeating the whole purpose of having electric vehicles and perpetuating our dependence on fossil fuels instead of finally getting ahead of the game.

ViewPoint

The Editor, Re: “South Asians value hard work,” the Now, Aug. 13. I read Harvinder Sandhu’s column and immediately thought to myself, “What is the purpose of this article?” I repeatedly hear from South Asian community leaders that they want to be treated no differently than any other group and then I read this column from Sandhu that is nothing more than a bunch of propaganda to promote the image of the South Asian community. If the South Asian community deserves to be admired and respected, they will be because of their actions and no one will need to write an article to tell the rest of us that we should “learn from them.” Who is she referring to that she suggests “begrudges” or “envies” the work ethic or entrepreneurial abilities of South Asians? Are we to take from this that those of us born in Canada or other parts of the world are less hardworking, have less of an ability to delay gratification, are less entrepreneurial? If Sandhu does believe this, then I would like to suggest to her that to do so would be stereotyping and a gross exaggeration. No more so than if one were to point out how South Asians are over represented in the violent gang activity in Surrey, how extreme domestic violence is routine in the South Asian community in Surrey, how many extensive frauds – such as the issuance of bogus drivers’ licences and vehicle inspection certificates – originate with South

Truly the best place in world MyView

“The best place in the world.” When this new slogan was introduced by the provincial government, it caused quite a stir. There were many who felt we can’t be Harvinder bragging like this; after SANDHU all, there were many places in the world that were equally beautiful, some more so. The naysayers may not have been disagreeing, but were probably uncomfortable by the self praise (a mentality we humble Canadians have). British Columbians in this part of the province can savour mountain views from any of the municipalities. That doesn’t mean there is nothing else for the rest of the province. In fact, the further north a person goes, the more pristine the environment, many more moments of, “wow, I’m so lucky to live here.” Having spent some time outdoors this summer, I have to agree with the person or persons who came up with this tag line – it is the best place in the world. We do not only have beautiful mountains to explore, we also have gorgeous lakes tucked away in the valleys and mountain tops to enjoy. It is the best place because we have easy access to this natural playground. It doesn’t take more than an hour (not counting traffic) to make your way to the mountains and their many trails. We also have great rapids to ride. There is no shortage of fantastic river- and white-water rafting prospects in British

Suite bylaw an attempt to divert attention from inability to fix issue

Columbia. Riding the rapids is an opportunity to view natural marvels, such as old growth forests and glacier-capped peaks. There are many rapids to enjoy that are an easy drive from Metro Vancouver to the Squamish and Whistler areas. In the long summer days there is nothing better than to go on a hike. Keeping this in mind, I hauled my family with the help of a cousin, an outdoor fanatic, for a trip to one of the mountains on the North Shore. Not very enthusiastic at first – and downright upset at the difficulty of the hike (this was an honest mistake) – the boys were unhappy, but did not give up. They were rewarded with a beautiful clear lake at the top of the trail to soak in and explore. The biggest reward they felt was the fact they made it up that part of the Baden-Powel hike, which we were informed is just a tad shorter and tougher than the Grind. Another reason B.C. is the best place is the relative safety in exploring this amazing backyard. As long as the participants are following basic common sense, there is no danger being out there. To top off the nature around us, we also have the availability of many ethnic eateries. Metro Vancouver is a foodie’s haven. It’s possible to get almost any type of ethnic food, from German to Ethiopian, the choices are endless. Take a day out to explore closer to home, before the end of summer, the nature we have been blessed to live near.

The Editor, Re: “Secondary-suite solution allows Surrey to move forward with confidence,” the Now letters, Aug. 3. Surrey council, by legalizing secondary suites, effectively changed single-family zoning to mini-duplex. Apparently, all new construction must include basic rough-in services for a suite, have off-street parking and be owner-occupied. It makes sense to ensure that if a suite is put in, with or without a permit, infrastructure exists to support it, but no sense if you want to keep the cost of housing down. The basics add thousands of dollars to the cost of construction and a finished suite adds tens of thousands. These mini-duplexes house two or more families. Is the city prepared to tax them as duplexes, which also house two or more families? The need for municipal services is the same. Once occupied, the city cannot enter premises to see if a roughed-in suite has been finished, rented or is sitting unused. Is it owneroccupied or a speculator investment? The City of Surrey’s confusing website offers no information on enforcement. Most people want a modest home they can afford, without becoming landlords. The current 3,500-square-foot subdivision building size is excessive for a regular family and should be reduced. Those

Harvinder Sandhu’s column appears Fridays in the Now.

who can afford larger homes can have one on a build to suit basis. Mandating suites in single-family zones does not make housing affordable. Income tax must be paid on suite revenue and the suite portion may be subject to capital gains tax. This is an attempt by council to divert attention from their inability to deal with illegal suites. That problem will now multiply itself in many different ways.

J Edwards Surrey

For God’s sake, shelter yourself! The Editor, Re: “Language used by Colley is insulting to Jesus,” Now letters, Aug. 10. I think the editors should have decided not to print Ralph Lyon’s ridiculous letter – letters to the editor should not provide a forum for irrational rants (the article did not contain swearing). I reread Ted Colley’s column and if that offended Lyon, I suggest he no longer read anything (except perhaps his Bible), no longer watch TV, no longer listen to the radio and, for God’s sake, stay away from the internet!

Some talented kids are shooting for the stars at this year’s PNE, the 100th edition of which starts this weekend. The yearly Red Robinson Talent Showdown finds several young Surrey-based enterTom tainers in the mix, including ZILLICH ukulele player Arden Reimer, 13, guitarist Robbie Walker, 18, and singers Alyssa Guttierez, 12, and Nhemy Cepeda, 11. In particular, Nhemy has wowed local crowds with his voice at the Spirit of the Sea Festival in White Rock, BC Junior Talent Search, the women’s softball championships at Softball City and other venues. For sure, his killer version of Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” will have the Hastings Park audience screaming for more on Monday (Aug. 23), during the kids division semi-final. Bryan Adams and The Beach Boys tagteam for the musical kickoff of this year’s PNE, Saturday afternoon at Empire Field. The fair continues with “the most extensive slate of free-with-admission programming in British Columbia history,” which includes Summer Nights concerts featuring Huey Lewis and the News, Joan Jett, Mariana’s Trench, Los Lobos, Little River Band, Cyndi Lauper and many others. Details are online at www.pne.ca.

‘Blues at S.A.C.’ for new seats

Blues band Agent C & Top Secret — featuring Surrey ad/media agency (get it?) guys Chris Thornley and Bruce Hayne, among others — plug in for a Sept. 30 benefit concert to support the Stand Up for the Arts seatreplacement campaign at Surrey Arts Centre. Tickets are $20 for the Blues at the S.A.C. shindig, a casual-dress affair that promises a great night of dancing and entertainment. Call 604-501-5566 for all the info. The 403 seats in the arts centre’s main theatre are old and need to be replaced, giving birth to the Stand Up for the Arts campaign last November. The initiative will generate only a portion of the $250,000 needed for the job, with additional funding from the city and the federal Cultural Spaces Canada program. For as little as $350 — or as much as $500, depending on the location of the seat in the theatre and timing of purchase — patrons can “buy” a seat complete with a brass plaque on its armrest. “We are at 125 (seats sold or donated),” Thornley told me. “There are 400 seats to ‘sell,’ but that will unfold slowly now — could take a few years. Apparently that is quite common. There will be more interest once the new seats are in.”

Central City Brewing Company is back in the business of live music. Pub employee Lyndsey Busch tells me they’ll be staging gigs there every Saturday, starting Sept. 4 with The Blue Pistola and continuing with Phil Dickson (Sept. 11), Braden Humphrey (Sept. 18) and Cellar Door (Sept. 24). The music starts at 8 p.m. at the Whalley venue — in the shadow of Bing Thom’s iconic tower, of course.

Since 1982, SAC’s primary theatre has had some big names pass through its dressingroom doors, including Michael Bublé, Bruno Gerussi, Long John Baldry and Liona Boyd.

Jazz finale Sunday at Legion

It’s curtains this weekend for the summer trad-jazz sessions held at Crescent Beach Legion hall. Rice Honeywell and his Red Beans & Rice crew have made ’em dance for the past couple of months every Sunday afternoon and, in celebration, they’re hosting a grand finale Aug. 22 by welcoming some guest players to the stage, including Joe Hopkins, Gary Church and Cheryl Thurston of Phoenix, Arizona’s 52nd Street Jazz Band and, quite possibly, local jazz star (and Georgia Straight cover girl) Bria Skonberg. Admission is $10 (or $8 for members of White Rock Trad Jazz Society and Legion members) at 2643 128th St. The society will resume its weekly jazz sessions there on Sept. 19.

Lady Gaga has become massive, a woman who will pack them in for a two-night stand at Rogers Arena (nee GM Place) Monday and Tuesday with little more than shock-pop wardrobe, limp disco beats and some nonsense lyrics (ever heard her “Bad Romance”?). Two years ago this month, she was pretty much a nobody. “Just Dance” had become a hit on radio stations and her debut album, Fame, was set for release on Aug. 19, 2008. The night before, the woman born Stefani Germanotta made her performance debut in Metro Vancouver — at Guildford’s LADY GAGA Mirage nightclub. Yes, in Surrey, which also served as the only local stop on Gaga’s small-venue tour that time around. Tickets were $25 for the landmark gig by the private-schooled New Yorker, who had already made a name for herself with provocative shows involving skimpy outfits and flaming cans of hairspray.

Notable concert dates

Singer-songwriter Shawn Phillips, who could fill large soft-seat venues back in the 1970s, pays a visit to South Surrey Aug. 28 for an intimate performance at the 150-seat Stanford Hall, at the new Kwomais Point Park. Tickets are $25 for the gig, which features opener Jason Mitchell. Call 604-5388144 for details. Hard-rock band Jar returns from sabbatical to headline a pre-Halloween bash at Envy nightclub in North Delta, Oct. 30 at 11920 70th Ave. Guests bands include Savenone, Soundstem and SplitTRACT.

Festival of flamenco returns to Playhouse ArtsScene

Artistic director and dancer Jill Tunbridge presents the ninth annual Flamenco del Mar Festival, Sept. 3-4 at White Rock’s Coast Capital Playhouse (1532 Johnston Rd.). Melanie Tickets are $20 in MINTY advance and $25 at the door. For info, call 604-542-2096 or email flamencotickets@hotmail.com. OK, right up front there are the bits you will need to know and don’t want to have to search for. And why would you go see a flamenco performance if you have never seen one before? It’s interesting, that’s why. This festival celebrates flamenco, the fiery passionate dance form that was exported from southern Spain. It’s not just dance, but an intimate interaction between dancers and musicians. It can be very exciting and energetic — definitely a cultural event, and quite suitable for every member of the family. Dancers from Flamenco del Mar Spanish Dance Studio will perform with guest artists from the Vancouver fla-

menco community. Invited guests include guitarist Juan Carreras, cantaora (singer) Jafelin Heltin and bailora (dancer) Denise Canso. See, now you know what those words mean. Soloist dancers from FDM to perform include Langley’s Karla Woode and Helen Fehrenberg. This end-of-summer festival is a perfect time for Fehrenberg, who teaches Spanish at Enver Creek Secondary in Surrey. Advance tickets for Flamenco del Mar Festival are also available at Christopher’s Gift Gallery, 12894 16th Ave., Surrey (604-535-1199). While we are still in the “dance” mode, the Tap Dogs show has been cancelled. It was originally set to be staged Sept. 8-12 at Vogue Theatre in Vancouver, but has been scrapped due to scheduling conflicts. This international sensation has performed in 330 cities worldwide, and 12 million tickets have been sold. I told you so; tap dancing is the greatest invention! At one time, Surrey’s Joshua Cyr was a Tap Dog. Yes, you can grow up in Surrey and have a career in dance. melminty@telus.net

HW

Julie CRAWFORD Actresses past a certain age — even Academy- and BAFTA-winning ones — can find their phones quiet. So when Hollywood stops calling, write a part for yourself. That’s precisely what Emma Thompson did in 2004, adapting Christianna Brand’s “Nurse Matilda” character for the big screen. Her second go-’round as Nanny McPhee — “small c, big P” — follows the same blueprint as the first fantastical film: a magical nanny (Thompson) slowly transforms from old hag to her pretty self as her young charges learn to share and be respectful of others. Nanny’s task this time is to rescue Mrs. Isabel Green (Maggie Gyllenhaal), a harried young mum who is trying to tame three children on a dung-encrusted farm while her husband is away at war. The farm is on the brink of ruin, and Mrs. Green is badgered daily by her scheming brother-in-law Phil (Rhys Ifans) who wants Isabel to sell, so he can clear up some gambling debts and avoid losing his kidneys. The household goes from unruly to

and the second Nanny is a hit with young viewers. Over time, the children learn their lessons and come to love Nanny, who warned them, “When you need me but do not want me, I must stay. But when you want me and no longer need me, then I have to go.” BBC and HBO veteran Susanna White makes her feature-film debut, which is part Babe, part creepy Mary Poppins. It’s not necessary to have viewed the first Nanny McPhee (which co-starred Colin Firth), but the second film feels piecemeal, with several missed opportunities for a more substantial backstory to prop up all that magic. At 109 minutes the film is just right for little people, but adults may yearn for an extra scene or two. The film’s brightest light is Gyllenhaal, who nails both the English accent and her frenzied but loving character. Maggie Smith co-stars as the dotty shopkeeper prone to filling her drawers with treacle, and Ralph Fiennes has a memorable scene as Cyril’s taciturn father. Ewan McGregor appears mostly in flashbacks as the MIA daddy. Production value and CG are abovepar and costume design is marvellous. Children will find the film diverting without realizing they’re being schooled in lessons about sharing and co-operation, but ultimately the film lacks staying power beyond the closing credits.

❚ WHAT’S ON ❚NEW ON DVD

Gripping whodunit with some rich, chilling detail The Girl Julie CRAWFORD With The Now contributor Dragon Tattoo Directed by Niels Arden Oplev. Starring Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvis. My rating: 8 (out of 10) Adapting a blockbuster book into a successful film is tricky territory, but director Niels Arden Oplev makes lensing Stieg Larsson’s best-selling novel look like child’s play. The gripping whodunit is infused with rich and chilling details, frame by eerie frame. The landscape is as unforgiving as the dysfunctional Vanger family clan, from which all this trouble stems. Disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvis) is hired by a member of the Vanger family to investigate the disappearance of his niece, some 40 years previous. Everyone in his wealthy and cloistered clan is suspect: at one point they are even assembled in the drawing room, like a creepy game of Clue.

be hard to top. If you haven’t got a Blu-ray player, you’re out of luck on the special-features front. Otherwise, there are interviews with Rapace and producer Soren Staermose, a trivia section and photo gallery, “The Vanger Family Tree,” and sneak peeks at The Girl Who Played With Fire.

Stiller stars in film about two very lonely L.A. people Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) and Nils Bjurman (Peter Andersson) star in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Mikael gets some unsolicited help from computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace), and the two forge a tenuous bond. It’s seemingly the first time that the seemingly irreversibly-damaged Lisbeth has bonded with anyone, and her history unspools alongside the details of the Vanger girl’s dis-

appearance. Be warned: scenes of violence and vengeance are disturbing, and difficult to watch. But Rapace’s performance is a marvel, and not to be missed. The Swedish film is already being “re-adapted” with David Fincher at the helm, but the performances of Nyqvis and Rapace will

Greenberg Directed by Noah Baumbach. Starring Ben Stiller, Greta Gerwig and Rhys Ifans. My rating: 8 (out of 10) If Noah Baumbach’s former forays into the damaged — and very verbose — human condition have left you deflated (Margot at the Wedding, The Squid and the Whale) then Greenberg will most definitely grate. But there’s something lovely about this story, featuring two of the loneliest people in L.A., even when we wonder if our anti-hero is worth saving. In a huge departure from his

former roles, Ben Stiller plays Roger Greenberg, an L.A. native who has spent years in New York, and most recently resided in a mental asylum recovering from a nervous breakdown. He returns to L.A. to house-sit for his brother, determined to do nothing but write letters of complaint to companies for petty grievances. He’s alienated all but one friend, the impossibly patient Ivan (Rhys Ifans). Along the way he meets Florence (Greta Gerwig, in a delicate and lovely performance), who is only slightly less aimless than Roger. The two forge a very tenuous bond as Roger flails emotionally. Performances are great; storytelling (by Jennifer Jason Leigh and Noah Baumbach) is remarkably honest. Trendy music by James Murphy and LCD Sound System seals the film’s indie feel. The DVD’s special features are interesting, albeit brief. There’s a behind-the-scenes extended trailer, while another extra hones in on Greenberg as a distrinctly L.A. movie, featuring chats with Baumbach and others.

You want to do it all. But you need to make a good decision and not overextend yourself in the process. We understand. By working together, we’ll help balance your need list with your wish list. Then it’s up to you how many rooms to renovate and how many cities to explore.

❚ WHAT’S ON

Moscow Ballet’s ‘Nutcracker’ tour starts in Surrey SURREY — The latest North American tour of Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker starts here. The Nov. 4 date for the seasonal dance production at Bell Performing Arts Centre was recently moved from Nov. 19. Tickets ranging from $26.50 to $66.50 are available at Ticketmaster outlets; those purchased for the original show date will be honoured. On tour, the 2010 version of Great Russian Nutcracker features two companies performing simultaneously, each consisting of 40 dancers.

The annual production “entertains all with new characters and larger-than-life puppets, all set against a stunning backdrop of unicorns, exotic birds and animals,” according to the show’s publicist. “An ethereal dove, a messenger of peace, leads Masha and the Nutcracker to the peaceful kingdom. Beloved Russian fairytale characters, Father Christmas and his granddaughter, the Snow Maiden, add to the outstanding dancing and the whimsical and imaginative storytelling that sets this Nutcracker apart.” — Tom Zillich

A scene from Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker, to be performed Nov. 4 at Bell Performing Arts Centre.

This time of the year, it should be the single best place in your home. Whether letting the day pass with a glass of wine or grilling juicy marinated steaks, an expansive patio is your stage for the perfect summer. Easily the best seat in the house, you won’t be surprised when friends and family just happen to be in the neighbourhood. When you’re not entertaining, you might sink into the quiet retreat of your recliner while the sun gently massages your back. More space means more time spent rather than wasted. Where instead of finding a spot, you’re taking a seat, and instead of picking up the cheque, you’re handpicking tonight’s menu. Here, there are no bad tables, no wait times, and no such thing as bad company. And when your patio is accented by a vast courtyard complete with community gardens, an outdoor barbeque, and a sunning area, the grass is always greener on your side.

ENJOY LIFE ON THE PATIO. MOVE INTO AXIS AT MORGAN CROSSING.

Six pack of titles made summer exciting Adam Michael BOOTH Svensson will Sports Editor have no problem coming up with a topic if he’s handed a “What I did on my summer vacation” essay assignment when he sits down for English 11 class at Earl Marriott Secondary next month. “I’ll just say I played golf,” the 16-year-old South Surrey teen said with a wry grin. “I’ve got lots I can talk about.” Indeed he does. Beginning with the week school got out at the end of June, Svensson went on an amazing tear, winning six tournaments in a row before his hot streak finally fizzled out at the Canadian Men’s Amateur last week in London Ontario. “I was just focused on playing well in the big tournaments,” he said with a shrug. “I knew I had a good chance to do well because I have been practicing a lot more and my putting has gotten a lot better. I just knew I could compete in the big tournaments.”

ADAM SVENSSON/ “I took a chance for sure and my dad was caddying for me and he was iffy about trying it.”

ADAM SVENSSON/ “It’s pretty cool to do well against guys who are older and have so much experience.” These tournaments weren’t weekend get togethers at the golf course, nor were they along the line of Big Bob’s Auto Parts Junior Invitational either. Over his six week run, Svensson captured two provincial championships, one national title and world crown while competing against rivals who were often much older than him. “It’s pretty cool to do well against guys who are older and have so much experience,” he said. “It’s kind of hard to describe how it feels when you play against them. I’m excited to play against them and I want to do well. Once I get on the course I’m just focused on playing the golf course and not worrying about how anybody else is doing. I used to talk a lot when I played and kind of fooled around out there but this year I’ve been more determined and focused.”

After six weeks of travel to golf tournaments across Canada and into California, Surrey’s Adam Svensson can finally relax and ❚PHOTO/Sharon Doucette reflect on his run of success. Svensson’s streak began in late June when he took top spot at the Future Links Pacific Championship at Beach Grove in Tsawwassen. He trailed Alberta’s Wilson Bateman by two shots with three holes to go but rallied to win by a single stroke. The following week he was

playing in the Zone 4 qualifying tournament for men’s amateur golfers at Kings Links by the Sea and Quilchena. After fading down the stretch on the final day and being forced into a playoff, Svensson responded to the challenge. With a spot in the provincials already sewn up, Svensson

Sports

threw caution to the wind on the third playoff hole. “It was a short Par 4 but most guys lay up on it,” he recalled. “I decided to try and finish it off so I used my driver and just smashed it over the trees. I was left with a 30-yard pitch and got a birdie. “I took a chance for sure and my dad was caddying for me and he was iffy about trying it. I had nothing to lose as they say; I had already qualified for the provincials. I just said ‘Give me the driver’ and I pounded it down there.”

He barely had time to savour that win before he was off to Vancouver Island for the B.C. Junior (under-18) Championship at Crown Isle. He was tied for the lead after each of the first two rounds before he finally broke loose on Day 3 to take a five-stroke lead. The cushion was enough for him to coast to a wireto-wire win. “I felt so relaxed at that tournament,” he said. “I just played my game and didn’t think much about anything else. I was very consistent, I didn’t spray the ball and I didn’t make too many mistakes.” The next stop was San Diego and the Callaway Junior World’s event at prestigious Torrey Pines. Svensson has competed in the event every year since he was six and said one his biggest goals for this year was to win his age group. He fired a 66 on the second day to move into contention and in the final round, he made up a three-stroke deficit on the first 10 holes to take a one-stroke lead over a player from Argentina. Svensson then unraveled briefly with a double bogey and a bogey to fall back by two strokes through 17 holes. On the final hole, however, it was Jorge Fernandez Valdes’ turn to falter as the Argentine chunked a double bogey while Svensson

came through with a birdie to turn defeat into a surprise win. “It’s kind of funny because (Vancouver’s) Eugene Wong did the exact same thing on the final hole two years ago there,” Svensson marvelled. “The three-wood I hit on my second shot was probably the best I’ve ever hit in my life. It was over the water and the small green was surrounded by bunkers and I made a perfect shot to within 15 feet of the hole. It was a perfect shot.” The following weekend Svensson was back in Canada for the B.C. Men’s Amateur in Castlegar. He led by two strokes after three rounds but Abbotsford’s Justin Shin closed to within a single stroke with three holes to play. The threat ended on the 16th hole when Svensson scored an eagle just as his rival was carding a double bogey, leaving the teen ahead by five strokes. Svensson’s sixth tournament win was kind of a surprise as he actually finished fourth overall. Competing in the Canadian Junior Championship in Richmond, Svensson struggled mightily in the first two rounds as he battled a flu bug but once the effects of the illness wore off, he shot a combined eight under par for the final two days to place fourth. He did not win the junior title but, as the top 16-year-old in the event, he did bring home the Canadian Juvenile championship trophy as a souvenir for his efforts, Last week the streak finally ended when he failed to make the cut after two rounds at the Canadian Men’s Amateur in London, Ontario. “I was wondering when it was going to wear off and I would start hitting it bad,” he said. “You have to have a bad round once in a while and I had played a lot of golf plus I was travelling around a lot. “I think I got a kind of mentally tired, especially at the Canadian Amateur in London. I’m not upset about what happened there, I just have to think back to what I did well and take that with me to next year.” Now that his run of success is over and he is back home Surrey for a break before school resumes, the reality of the accomplishments is beginning to sink in. Winning one tournament is hard enough let alone a half-dozen in a row against tough opponents. “Now that it’s all over and I can think back, it was pretty amazing,” he said with a shake of his head. “When it was happening I never thought much about it; I would win and then I would get ready for the next one. Now I can think about it and I’m kind of amazed about it and proud of what I did. At the time though, I didn’t think about it at all. I just played golf and tried to put it in the hole.”

Eagles ready for training camp Like a little kid Michael BOOTH awaiting Santa’s Sports Editor visit, Matt Erhart can’t wait for Monday morning. The first-year of the Surrey Eagles has spent the last four-and-a-half months getting ready, tweaking his roster with trades and collecting commitments from promising midget players. The fruits of his efforts will be on the ice Monday morning when the Eagles open training camp at South Surrey Arena. “It’s a very exciting time,” Erhart said. “We’re really excited about some of the moves we were able to make over the summer and now we’re able to see the kids up close. We’ve been staring at the paper with our depth chart all summer and now we get to actually see some faces and all the hard work some of the kids put in. Most of the kids came back in great shape and we’re excited about getting going on Monday.” Returning veterans have been skating for the past week along with out

of town players as they trickle into Surrey. Erhart is impressed with what he’s seen so far but training camp promises to be a much tougher test. “We hit the ice early Monday morning and we don’t really have much time off right through to Sunday,” he said. “We have a golf tournament Thursday and that’s about the only break. There’s just three days of practise before the first cuts and then we play exhibition games so guys have to be ready to go. It’s going to small with only about 45 guys but we wanted it that way to ensure that the atmosphere is competitive. It’s going to be a pretty intense camp and all the guys were told that before they got here.” The Eagles return 10 players from the team that finished third in the B.C. Hockey League’s Coastal Conference. Over the summer Erhart was able to augment those numbers with a series of trades that brought in six more players with junior A experience. Perhaps the biggest acquisition

was 20-year-old Jeff Vanderlugt, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound power forward from Ontario. Last season Vanderlugt played for Canada East in the World Junior A Challenge. A pair of 20-year-old defencemen will also make their Eagles debut Monday. Matt Mazzarolo joins Surrey after two years in Merritt while Wade Bennett suited up for Trail last season. Originally from California, Bennett’s younger brother Beau was a firstround pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins after playing in Penticton last year. Nineteen-year-old Mitchell Jones also joins the Eagles’ blue line after playing in Penticton and Merritt last season. Eighteen-year-old forwards Brodie Jamieson (Coquitlam) and Robert Lindores (Alberni Valley) round out the list of experienced newcomers to the Eagles’ nest. “We’ve added some definite experience with some size as well,” Erhart said. “At the same time, we didn’t sacrifice any speed because these guys can all move pretty good.”

PRE-HST SAVINGS

EXTENDED

The Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) came into effect on July 1st, increasing the cost of funerals by 7%. In many cases, this amounts to an increase of $500 or more. While we assisted hundreds of families with their prearrangements prior to the July 1st deadline, many others were unable to complete their plans before the HST became effective.

We’re happy to announce that First Memorial Services Fraser Heights Chapel is extending the pre-HST savings – but only for a limited time.

S. Surrey/ White Rock

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Rest, lie low, contemplate, be charitable and spiritual now to late September. Don’t start new projects before Sept. 12. Anticipate delays, mistakes in administrative duties and government, institutional links. A tax or other neglected matter might return to demand completion. But in general, life will flow smoothly, your romantic progress (if you’re in one) pleases, life is sweet and nostalgic! (If you’re single, unattached, late January to early summer 2011 will bring a lucky partnership opening.) Romance, creative urges Sunday/Monday; exciting meetings Friday/Saturday. Work, mid-week.

Taurus April 20-May 20: Reject new starts, projects and relationships before Sept. 12. Loads of work streams your way, but there’s satisfaction, even affection in this. Also, a month of romance, pleasure, charming kids, speculation and beauty starts now! You’ll have lots of relief from all those duties. (But keep your eye on the ball, for late September will bring another basket of chores.) Your status/career meet luck Sunday (best) and Monday. Social joys, optimism, happiness and entertainment arrive Tuesday to Thursday. Your “destined love” is “around.” An old flame? Lie low, rest late week.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Projects, relationships and ventures begun before Sept. 12 will almost certainly meet overwhelming mistakes, indecision and delays. So stick with the ongoing, or past situations, especially in earnings and spending – an area that will generally be fortunate for the four weeks ahead. (An “unseen destiny” aids you in money areas midweek.) Double-check amounts on cheques, change at the store, watch your wallet, etc. Relationships demand (and reward) your attention Sunday (best) and Monday. Secrets, intimacy, lust, investments, debt, mid-week. Gentle love, wisdom Friday/ Saturday.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start no important new projects, ventures, relationships before Sept. 12. That might be difficult, as your mind naturally travels to the future for the next four weeks – you’re optimistic! Well, enjoy the state. Your popularity grows, social joys enter, entertainment, flirtations abound. A former lover or sweet friend might return. It’s fun and full of bounce, so don’t say no. But on a deeper level, the love here will raise issues of “deep duty,” perhaps of burden, or ”sweet sorrow.” You decide what’s worth what. Duties, sweet or not, appear Sunday/Monday, Friday/Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: A former job, career contact, parenting role, or status position might return now to Sept. 12. (“Destiny” aids here mid-week.) But don’t start brand new projects or relationships, especially in these areas. Instead, seize that past opportunity, or stick with ongoing ventures, while protecting them from delays, mistakes and misunderstood communications. Your social life remains happy, upbeat. A light, flirtatious romance could arrive (perhaps Thursday night through Saturday) – or better, an ongoing one thrives. (A brand new relationship will tend to stay light, not “grow.”)

Cancer June 21-July 22: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. Sunday begins four weeks of travel, communications, errands, curiosity, casual acquaintances, siblings, paperwork, news, and “daily business.” A busy, not important time. It’s busy partly because these activities (travel, communications, etc.) meet delays, misses, mistakes, forgetfulness. Keep a running “to do” list, take a list when shopping, etc. Your home, kids, a security or realty project remain front-and-centre. Finances, intimacy, lifestyle decisions favoured Sunday/Monday. Gentle love, wisdom mid-week. Ambition, Friday/Saturday.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy and charisma soar this week through the next few, Virgo. But don’t start big new (or even small important) projects, nor relationships, before Sept. 12. So that leaves you in a bind: you’re in the best start time of the year energywise, and one of the worst circumstantially. Solution: seize something incomplete or abandoned from the past, and revive it. Best (past) place to look: earnings, money, possessions, rote learning, memory, a sensual contact, financial investment/debt, sexual bond, lifestyle change. Work’s lucky Sunday, relationships and travel lucky Tuesday/Wednesday.

Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of work and health issues begins Sunday. Yet your main experience will be pleasure this week. Sunday/ Monday feature social delights, happiness (attraction) in love, optimism, entertainment and wish fulfilment! Thursday night through Saturday boost your energy and charisma. (Saturday might bring a further development to Sunday/Monday’s attraction.) This week subtly furthers your (fortunate) destiny in work, career, and ultimately, finances. Even your “down time,” Tuesday to Thursday eve, flows smoothly: rest, think. Remember, start nothing major before Sept. 12.

Gemini May 21-June 20: Delay all new starts – especially in domestic, realty, Mother Nature and security spheres – until Sept. 12. You’ll be tempted to “jump early” in those domestic, realty (etc.) areas, as they grow large for the next four weeks. Let events evolve: destiny is on your side, especially financially. Romance (or the lack thereof) remains a strong secondary note. Love’s opportunities exist right into mid-September. However, better now if it’s an old flame – perhaps from a former neighbourhood. Love and/or friendship are favoured Sunday/Monday and Thursday night to Saturday. Mid-week, be ambitious.

August 22 - 28 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. A former educational, publishing, cultural, love, international, legal or intellectual interest, project or situation might return. (Or you daydream about it/him/her.) Returning to the past can reward. If an old flame returns, a strong “career” or ambition streak is involved – e.g., he/she perhaps was once your boss, or a major client. Chase money Sunday (best) and Monday. Travel, communications mid-week – a turn of destiny could bring, aid, one of those educational, international, etc. things! Let things end Thursday night through Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A former investment, debt, secret, sexual, research, lifestyle, criminal/ police, diagnostic or health situation could reappear before Sept. 12. It’s generally favourable, could be a doorway to profit, satisfaction. But think before you leap. During the same interval, start nothing new, especially in these areas. You’re going be dealing with heavy themes, serious matters! Gentle, true love, intellectual growth, mental creativity, pleasurable travel and/or legal process – all continue. Your energy, charisma surge Sunday/Monday. (Someone has romance on the mind!) Chase money mid-week. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Avoid new starts before Sept. 12 – in projects and, especially, in relationships. You’ll have plenty to keep you busy with ongoing links – including one from the past. These might “reappear” after some absence: negotiations, litigation, a relocation, partnership or business opportunity, or even an enemy. Take everything in stride, be flexible, diplomatic. You might face a choice: To join or compete. Joining’s better, as your competition holds the aces right now. Lie low, rest, contemplate Sunday/Monday. Your charisma surges mid-week, triggering success! Money caution after Thursday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014

❚ Change the air filter: According to Environment Canada, replacing a clogged air filter can improve a car’s gas mileage by as much as 10 per cent. Fram air filters are an effective solution, as most models feature bright white fibres that make it easy to spot when a filter may need checking. While not all cars are alike, this is often a very easy project that can be done in minutes. ❚ Try a fuel additive: Using a fuel additive like Prestone Complete Fuel System Cleaner every 6,400 kilometres helps improve acceleration and fuel economy by unclogging fuel injectors and cleaning intake valves and combustion chambers. “All you need to do is pour it into your gas tank and drive away to improved performance,” Currie said. Now carrying out simple activities like this doesn’t mean you should avoid your local automotive service provider. Deferred maintenance can cost you way more in the long run. So, still plan to

schedule those routine visits to ensure your car is in good working order and don’t put off maintenance activities such as oil changes and tune ups. Consider changing out spark plugs for ones that offer a faster, more efficient burn. Autolite XP Xtreme Performance spark plugs ignite the gas and air mixture inside the cylinders more efficiently than .8mm finewire, multi-electrode design and standard plugs, resulting in improved throttle response and acceleration. This, in turn, helps provide top fuel efficiency over the life of the plug. Also, ask your technician to use synthetic oil and a filter like the FRAM Extended Guard synthetic oil filter. It may cost a little more upfront, but you’ll be able to go 11,000 kilometres before your next oil and filter change. Your owner’s manual will tell you what kind of oil to use and how often to have it changed. Finally, ensure your vehicle has received the proper cooling system maintenance. Prestone experts suggest that neglected antifreeze/ coolant can lead to corrosion, overheating and boil overs – and could cost lots of money to get it repaired. Whether you do it yourself or have it done for you, preventative maintenance is the key to healthy cars and healthy wallets. Think of it this way, you can pay now for regular maintenance or potentially pay much more later for costly repairs or vehicle breakdowns.

Make your car look like new

You don’t have to buy a new vehicle every three or four years if you take proper care of the one you’ve got. Freeman Young, president of Krown Rust Control Systems, offers these tips for keeping your automobile looking its best and performing well for many years: ❚ Have your car treated annually to prevent rust, preferably beginning soon after you buy it. ❚ If your car has already begun to rust, don’t despair. As long as it isn’t bad enough to require body work, a rust control chemical can still penetrate the rust, preventing further oxidization and stopping the spread of corrosion. ❚ Find an environmentally safe product, preferably one that has a hydrocarbon (oil) base. ❚ Insist on watching the technicians to make sure they do the job knowledgably and with care. (For example, they should spray the rust control product into hidden areas such as the top of the gas tank.) If they won’t let you watch, take your business where the service is better. ❚ Keep your vehicle clean and, during the winter months, saltfree; clean the wheel wells frequently with a power washer. — News Canada
