‘This is a war on graffiti’ Chamber offers reward offered for nabbing culprits By Jennifer Lang It’s a sunny winter morning in the fastgrowing residential enclave of Clayton, where Bill Reid is outlining the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce’s newest initiative. For the past six weeks, the chamber has been waging an anti-graffiti campaign in the Hillcrest and Clayton neighbourhoods, in concert with the Clayton Crossing and Hillcrest shopping centres. Reid, executive director of the chamber, estimates about $4,000 has been spent erasing graffiti in the area. The aim is to remove graffiti as soon as it’s reported, returning as necessary to deter vandals from striking again. It’s an expansion of an existing initiative in downtown Cloverdale, where the chamber and the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association have long aimed for a zero-tolerance policy against graffiti. “You have to be on top of it all the time,” says Reid. After a building has been tagged, the graffiti is erased, removed or painted over. It’s only been two days since the latest clean up, when the handiwork of vandals was removed from 22 separate locations and already new tags have sprung up to replace what’s been erased. He’s about to point out a recent victory –

a large, white storage container located in a shady corner of the Clayton Crossing mall parking lot, when he interrupts himself. “Oh, they got it!” he spits. “Look at that. Since last night,” he trails off dejectedly. The container – which had just been painted to conceal graffiti – is covered in giant orange bubble letters written in an unsteady hand. “The trouble is, most of it looks like garbage,” Reid says, pulling ahead to continue the tour. At best, graffiti is regarded as a form of artistic expression, reflecting the modern urban experience. At worst, graffiti contributes to an atmosphere of neglect and decay, providing a breeding ground for property crime. “It creates a feeling that the community doesn’t care,” Reid says. “Once that happens, people start putting litter on every corner, and people start putting old fridges out and stuff.” That’s why the chamber is offering a $1,000 reward to anyone who catches someone in the act. He admits graffiti can be a beautiful, if misunderstood art form. Sadly, the examples – known as tags – along Reid’s route demonstrate nothing of that kind of promise. See SENDING / Page 3

Vote for a new comic hero By Jennifer Lang Jasper Jubenvill, our resident comic creator, is once again turning to Reporter readers to decide who will star in his next series.

Winning move


Dre, an 11-month-old male whippet, watches from the sidelines as his brother and sister compete at the Lower Mainland Dog Fanciers of B.C.’s Spring Fling, an all-breed championship dog show, held at the Cloverdale Agriplex on Saturday, Feb. 25. The dog is owned by Helen Brettell of Snohomish County, WA.

Sending out a clear message From page one

“We do ask people to engage in the community and care for things as small as litter and graffiti,” she said. Jen Temple of the Trademark Group of Companies, manages Hillcrest Village Shopping Centre, and says the mall spent $2,000 combating graffiti in 2010, and $3,000 in 2011. Zero tolerance, she says, sends out a clear message, and frustrates the culprits. “They want people to see it. If it’s gone, then there’s no reason to continue.” She advocates a restorative justice approach where the culprit is forced to reckon with and remedy the damage done by helping clean up graffiti. She applauds the chamber initiative. “I think it’s great,” she says. “It’s teamwork.”

Along with offering the $1,000 reward, Reid says the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce is also working with the City of Surrey and B.C. Hydro to cover more utility cabinets with colourful vinyl wraps, which deter graffiti and vandalism. About 10 high-profile, frequently-targeted cabinets have been identified as candidates. Meanwhile, the battle continues. “This is a war on graffiti,” he says. “We’re going to win it. There’s two or three deliberate people we’ve got to catch. You catch them, the problem is solved.”

Teen in coma The 16-year-old Dawson Creek resident who was hit by an SUV last Friday night in Cloverdale remains in a medically-induced coma. Krysten Doran, who was visiting family in the Lower Mainland, was crossing Highway 10 near 180 Street at around 10 p.m. Feb. 24 when she was struck by a westbound vehicle. She suffered extensive head and body injuries. She was airlifted to hospital, where she re-

Spring — A time for Renewal I love this time of year on the West Coast. I love it because it’s a time of renewal. Creation is waking up after a period of dormancy and there are signs of fresh life all around us. The crocuses are bursting forth in bloom, the buds on the magnolia are swelling as they ready to break and the daffodils are showing off their brilliant yellow heads. Aside from the pure aesthetic qualities of a lively garden landscape, there is a deep joy associated with the fresh life being breathed into creation. What we observe in the renewal of our gardens is a sign of the renewal that God performs in His children each day, and a foreshadowing of an eternally renewed creation. Isaiah prophesies about this when he says, “the desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy.” God is good. Just as He renews creation, He also renews those who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Through Jesus, God breathes new and eternal life into us. We invite you to join us for worship on Sunday as we experience this new life together.

Her father Paris indicated she is doing better than she was when she arrived at hospital, and friends are pulling for her on Facebook. Surrey RCMP say alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors in the collision, which is still under investigation by Surrey RCMP Traffic Services. They say the girl was wearing dark clothing and there was very little artificial light in the area where the collision occurred. The roadway was also wet. The driver was not

“They’ll all be the same,” Reid says, referring to the fact that a tag represents the name of the individual who created it – young individuals who want to leave their mark. “They want to be noticed and let everyone know he’s around.” Once pointed out, tags seem to be everywhere in these otherwise smart new streets and cul-de-sacs – on power poles, utility cabinets, post and mail boxes, lamp posts, curbs, fences, and walls. Tags are even scrawled across realtor signs and residential development billboards along Fraser Highway. Until Reid took a tour of the area, he had “no idea how bad it was.” The problem came to his attention at a public consultation meeting

on nuisance issues and community engagement hosted by the Surrey RCMP’s District 4 office (Cloverdale/Port Kells). Irwin Cohen, director of the University of the Fraser Valley’s School of Criminology and Criminal Justice led a facilitated discussion, where he advised participants it’s important to “sweat the small stuff ”. District 4 commander Staff/Sgt. Shirley Steele says the RCMP weren’t getting many complaints about graffiti in the Clayton/ Hillcrest area, but she’s pleased the chamber of commerce has taken the lead in launching a clean-up drive. She is a firm believer in the broken window theory; low-level crime needs to be dealt with at an early stage, when it’s easier to deal with, she says.

A guest appearance at Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino by Canada’s leading standardbred driver on Remembrance Day last fall has resulted in big winnings for the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 6 in Cloverdale. Scott Zeron, a 22-year-old driver from Ontario, won four harness races at the B.C. Breeders Classic Day on Nov. 11. He donated his winnings to the Royal Canadian Legion, a sum matched by Fraser Downs management. Other drivers and trainers also donated $500 to the cause. Richard Lancaster, a driver/trainer at Fraser Downs, presented the $2,200 cheque to Cloverdale Legion president Pat Ostrom on Feb. 22, at the branch’s annual general meeting.

How I miss old Cloverdale There’s been a lot of changes. Hopefully it won’t take too long to replace what’s been lost To the editor; I love the old little historical town of Cloverdale. I hate seeing so many wonderful businesses shut down and go elsewhere. Why though are so many wonderful landmark businesses leaving and/or quitting our very sweet and unique historical little town of Cloverdale? Is this progress or regress? Or are people getting older and retiring? Or has the hustle and bustle of people strolling the historical downtown core taken to strolling elsewhere? Or is there something else going on? In the historical downtown area, the Salvation Army up and left. The China Cup restaurant gave it a good try. Joysticks and Paddles left some time ago. Hometown Antiques has been gone for a few years now, but I had to mention them as they had once been a strong fixture of the bustling antique magnet Cloverdale was known for. And the Clova Cinema, if only that building could talk, what

Cellphones, landline telephones and the Internet are usually among the first services to fail during a major emergency. Fortunately, amateur (or ham) radio operators can provide vital links to agencies and city services, such as fire, police and ambulance when commercial communications systems are down. The Surrey Museum and the Surrey Emergency Program Amateur Radio Society are hosting an upcoming amateur radio emergency communications workshop for kids. The Tuesday, March 20 workshop will focus on how amateur radio provides valuable emergency communications. The workshop will provide kids with a hands-on experience of how amateur radio systems work and the technology used. Participants will talk to people in other countries, experience digital communications without the internet, learn how radio waves travel, try Morse

Surrey Heritage group holds racy fundraiser Members hope to raise thousands to relocate truck museum By Jennifer Lang The Surrey Heritage Society is inviting supporters out to the horse races at Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino Friday night. A Night at the Races is a fundraising event for the society, which is working to acquire the Teamsters Freight Transportation Museum collection, with help from the City of Surrey and the public. The society wants to relocate the collection of vintage, pre-1960 trucks from Coquitlam to the old Surrey Museum building on the Cloverdale Fairgrounds. A corporate report from city staff makes its way to Surrey council March 12, when more details about the proposal will be made known. “As a result of lobbying and negotiations, we’re going to be able to probably pay for all the renovations needed for the truck museum, from the community,” society member Bill Reid said. The group needs to raise between $15,000 and $20,000 in order to do so, Reid said. Members hope the collection would open for viewing over Cloverdale Rodeo weekend. The collection of trucks can be traced back to the B.C. Transportation Museum, which was formerly located in Cloverdale, but closed in 1992. “There’s a lot of people who have followed this HISTORIC STEWART FARM Tour the charming restored 1894 farmhouse, pole barn and heritage gardens, try old-fashioned crafts, take part in a program or special event, and imagine pioneer life at the turn of the 19th century. 13723 Crescent Road, Surrey. 604-592-6956.

Once upon a plucky princess Surrey youth set to star in a stage adaptation of the classic children’s novel By Jennifer Lang The Surrey Youth Theatre Company presents A Little Princess, a beloved children’s classic, at the Surrey Arts Centre this weekend. The play, based on a novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, tells the story of Sara Crewe, a soldier’s daughter who’s brought to a boarding school in Victorian London, where she endures a series of hardships – from her father’s death and mistreatment by a cruel headmistress, to poverty and servitude. Despite her trials, Sara never loses her sense of dignity, warmth, or imagination, qualities that endear her to friends, and serve her well on her difficult, but ultimately uplifting journey. In real life, author Frances Hodgson Burnett, who also wrote The Secret Garden, wrote to support her younger siblings after her parents died. The show is directed by Susan Pendleton and

Q I’m replacing the motherboard in my desktop. Will this affect my operating system?


What is a good healing spray for mouth ulcers?


There are many preparations for mouth sores but the one that really promotes healing is a homeopathic spray called Vinceel®. It heals any canker sore and aphthous ulcer fast and relieves sore throat and dry mouth of any origin. It has antiinflammatory and moisturing action rather than just numbing the area. Even radiation and scald burns benefit from Vinceel®. It is also suitable for herpes lesions on and around the lips.


I want to sell my home but I do not want the realtor to put a sign on my property. What are the benefits of a sign?


If you want to sell your home you should utilize all the advertising resources available to you — including signage on your property. A sign lets people driving by know that your house is for sale. Potential buyers will drive through certain areas to see what is for sale. Without a sign, they could miss the opportunity to view your home and you could miss an opportunity to sell. Also, your neighbours may be waiting for a listing to come up in their area because they want a relative or friend to move into their neighbourhood. Without a sign, they have no way to know that your house is for sale.

Q I’m thinking about buying a new computer. What brands do you currently recommend?


Canada’s biggest selling laptop. The smaller group such as Sony, Asus & MSI are good but their replacement parts are expensive in comparison.

Q Will adding more Memory make my PC run faster? some cases yes. If you have less than 512 MB Ram then A In adding Memory (Ram) will definitely speed up any computer.

Personal Tax


Can you provide me with some information on the new Children’s Art Tax Credit (“CATC”)? For 2011 and subsequent years, the CATC is a new nonrefundable tax credit based on eligible expenses paid for the cost of registration or membership of your child in a eligible program of artistic, cultural, recreational or developmental activity. The credit allows you to claim up to $500.00 for each of your children who are under 16 years old at the beginning of the year. The maximum tax credit is $75.00 per child. There are many eligible programs and activities including visual arts, literary arts, music, media, languages, customs and heritage. However, the rules regarding this tax credit are somewhat complex so I recommend that you discuss the availability of the CATC with the specific organization that his providing the service to your child. In order to claim the CATC, you must have receipts from the organization that delivered the program. The receipt will identify the amount that is eligible for the CATC. For more information on this or other issues, please contact me at your convenience.

Laptop or desktop? Of all the brands out there I recommend a white box desktop because the parts tend to be better, they are generic and easily replaceable if something should happened. The big branded names like HP & Apple usually contain proprietary parts that makes repair difficult, expensive and sometimes impossible.

In a lot of cases the hardware is so different between the old and new motherboard the operating system will need to be reinstalled. This should be done professionally because you risk loosing your personal data if done incorrectly.

What are the benefits of preschool? Preschool prepares your young child for kindergarten in many ways. They are the foundations for academic learning. In preschool your child will listen to poetry and songs — building blocks needed to grasp phonics and reading skills when it is developmentally appropriate. The play that takes place with water, sand, and containers form the foundation for understanding some basic math concepts. Matching, sequencing, one-to-one correspondence are all activities that are done over and over in preschool settings to help children prepare to learn academics. Watching other children pursue a challenging task is also helpful. The presence of other children and a wide variety of materials are two big reasons why a preschool is a good thing. Registrations are now being accepted for our new full day preschool starting in September 2012. At Kidzrock we believe in giving your children the best childcare/preschool experience imaginable.

How do I choose a good Taekwondo school? Make an appointment to visit the school and talk to an instructor. You may be involved in Martial Arts for years so talk to others at the school. Many of our students have been training with us for over 5 years and most new students are recommended by others who have heard about, or train at our facility. The minimum that a good Taekwondo School should have is: • Certified Instructors - Instructors properly trained to assure that you will get quality instruction. • Safety floor - Cushioned floor to reduce falling injuries and minimize the effect of impact from active movement. • Adequate floor size - Training floor should be large enough to allow full range of motion. • Positive Atmosphere - When you walk into your Taekwondo School you should look forward to a bright, positive environment • Well Rounded Program - At our Academy there are many exciting opportunities. Training with Masters...Regional, National and World level competition...demonstration teams...XTreme, leadership and instructor training... Brazilian Jiu Jitsu… advanced self-defence, weapons....the list is endless. At Cloverdale Black Belt Academy we are proud of our students’ comments on the positive atmosphere of the school and how much they enjoy their training.
