Donor kitty living on borrowed time Pekoe’s favourite scratching post.

By Jennifer Lang Pekoe the orange tabby is definitely on the last of his nine lives – and holding. He was rescued as a tiny, 12-week-old kitten suffering from a blocked urethra. He couldn’t pee. Urine was draining between the muscle layers in his leg – as painful and as serious as it sounds. Fortunately for Pekoe, his new home was with Cloverdale’s Jim and Dr. Susan Thompson. Susan is a veterinarian who performed an initial surgery to alleviate the blockage, plus several follow-up

reconstructive surgeries requiring lengthy recoveries – all before he even turned six months. The feisty, (mostly) friendly marmalade cat has suffered more than most cats, with nary a growl or a grumble. Instead, Pekoe prefers to grin and bear it. “He’s a tough kitty,” says Jim. More recently, he’s endured the rigors of the show ring, winning mostly thirds, fourths and fifths, but also the title of grand quad champion, racking up 4,000 points. Winners enter the ring up to 18 times in one day – stressful for cats “who

Students will flick the switch for Earth Hour

A spacious new artistic venue in Cloverdale is opening up in Cloverdale later this month. It’s the new fine arts studio space at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Cloverdale campus. The grand opening of the new space coincides with Kwantlen’s Annual Fine Arts Exhibition, Stretch of Road, on view March 25 to 31 at the Cloverdale campus, 5500 180 Street in room 1843. Kwantlen now offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Arts degree program along with a one-year Fine Arts certificate and two-year Fine Arts diploma. While the Surrey campus is at the centre of Kwantlen’s Fine Arts department, the expansive Cloverdale fine arts space at Kwantlen’s trades and technology campus has ample room for third and fourth year studios – and for large exhibitions like the annual student show. Stretch of Road features the best student work over the past year, and promises to be well worth a look, as is the studio space housing the exhibition, for those who haven’t already checked it out. The exhibition party is Friday, March 25 from 6 to 9 p.m. Gallery Hours are March 28 to 31 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (Closed Sunday.)

On Jan. 1, B.C. banned new imports of 75-and 100-watt incandescent bulbs. CFLs use 75 per cent less energy than incandescents and last up to 10 times longer. Clayton Heights instructor Sarah Daintrey says at home, she simply replaces incandescent bulbs with long lasting fluorescent bulbs as they burn out. Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia, when 2.2 million homes and businesses turned the lights off. A year later, it spread to more than 50 million people across 35 countries, when well-known

landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge and Rome’s Colosseum stood in darkness. By 2009, more than 1 billion people participated in Earth Hour. Last year, enough Surrey residents pulled the plug to reduce the city’s power consumption by 2 per cent. That’s actually better than the provincial average of 1.03 per cent, according to BC Hydro, which sponsors the event along with the World Wildlife Fund. Combined, B.C. residents saved 64.4 megawatt hours of electricity in 2010 – the equivalent of turning off 1.4 million lights. Perhaps it’s not so symbolic after all.

By Jennifer Lang Just because Earth Hour takes place on a Saturday night during Spring Break doesn’t mean a local high school can’t get into the act. Clayton Heights Secondary spent the past week raising awareness about Earth Hour, the global initiative to get people to turn off all the lights – and power down appliances and electrical gadgets – for one hour on March 26. Wherever they are, Canadians are asked to observe the power down for 60 minutes starting at 8:30 p.m. “We’ll probably play a board game or something,” Grade 11 student Nalin Dhillon said. He’s one of the students helping to spread the word about Earth Hour, which aims to reduce power consumption and to raise awareness. The school may not be able to participate directly, but a few Earth Hour-style activities were planned ahead of time, Dhillon says. On March 14, teachers were given the opportunity to switch off the lights in their classroom. Students also created paper light bulbs with facts, quotes and information about Earth Hour printed on them and hung them up around the school to help promote the campaign. Ideas for the hour itself include planning a candlelight dinner, playing board games (like Dhillon plans to do), or telling stories as a family. Participants are asked to think about ways to reduce power consumption in the long-term, too. Standard incandescent bulbs are being phased out in favour of more efficient compact fluorescent lightbulbs, or CFLs.

To the editor; Re: “The End of Antique Alley,” March 4 I’d like to tell you my story about how I found the Red Barn Antiques in Cloverdale. I’m from Germany and like Canada very much, also the fine antiques that are offered there. I found the Red Barn Store 14 years ago, looking for the antique capital of B.C. It was amazing to me, the red barn, so nice looking, big and [with] the old charm. The fine antiques gave a great feeling, also the people who worked there were so familiar and friendly.

After I met my wife Mette from Norway I took her to the Red Barn. She was speechless. We like the place so much and are so sad that Leigh is closing the door forever. He’s a nice guy. We will miss the great Red Barn with all the stories it has to tell... very much.

That’s not to say that I always bought antiques every time I went to White Rock, every time I had to drive to Leigh just to say hello. Most of the time there was new old stuff added since the last visit. I bought tiny, big and bigger antiques like parking meters, fire hydrants, pocket watches, dinnerware, Indian masks, cash registers and so much more, shipping them to my place in Germany. So much stuff but my place is too small, too. We had a lot to laugh, to discuss and make jokes [about].

tion. It takes time to plan new schools and build them. We need other alternatives than just portables. If you look north of the Fraser River from Vancouver to Maple Ridge, you will find the opposite problem. That is, too many schools, and not enough students to fill them, resulting in schools being closed down.

Extend Your Vehicle's Life

Daniel Apprentice Tech

Between bad road conditions and long idling times, winter driving causes a lot of wear and tear on your vehicle. Spring Maintenance is the best way to help your car recover. A good rule of thumb is that a change of season equals a change of oil. Changing your car's oil and filter every three months or 5,000 kms, whichever comes first, will ensure that your car operates at peak efficiency. Changing oil regularly is the single most important thing that can be done to extend the life of your vehicle and keep it running smoothly.

Souder, a student at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary, earned his medal in the architectural CADD event at the March 4 event, held at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Hayden Rewald, also of LTS, earned his silver in carpentry. The youths were two of six gold, seven silver, and nine bronze medals earned by Surrey students at the Lower Fraser Valley Skills Canada regional competition. More than half of the 180 students at this year’s event were from Surrey schools.

Students competed in 14 categories, from automotive service and cabinet making to fashion design, welding, and culinary arts. There were also junior skills competitions in gravity car and sumo robot events. The skills competition aims to boost interest in the trades and technology fields as careers. Gold medalists advance to the provincial Skills Canada Competition in April. From there, winners advance to the nationals in Quebec in June. And national winners qualify for the WorldSkills International event in London next fall.

STOPPING TRAIN TRAFFIC Train traffic came to a halt Monday afternoon after someone fleeing police ditched their pickup truck on the train tracks in Cloverdale. Langley RCMP became aware of the vehicle at around 1 p.m. It’s not clear whether a chase ensued, but the person in the truck pulled onto the tracks at 168 Street south of Highway 10 and drove about 200 metres down the track. The truck was abandoned next to a stopped train. Police were looking for the suspect. – Black Press

Reaching up, I grabbed Nellie McClung’s right hand. Held aloft in her left hand is a replica the Ottawa Journal headline dated October 18, 1929 declares: “Women are Persons…” “Thanks, Nellie,” I said. From Suffragette Heaven, I’m sure she and her friends smiled. Tagged the Famous Five for their determined fight for women’s rights, Nellie McClung, Irene Parlby, Emily Murphy, Henrietta Muir Edwards and Louise McKinney are immortalized in bronze on the Parliament Hill park grounds in Ottawa. The triumphant tableaux (created by Barbara Paterson and cast by Bronzart Casting Ltd. of Calgary) commemorates the women celebrating

Canada’s Parliament. A symbol to be proud of in a turbulent world.

their landmark battle to have Canadian women declared “persons” under the law, and therefore eligible to sit in the Senate. I stumbled on the bronzes by accident, but they – and the majestic bronze of Queen Elizabeth ll on horseback nearby – delighted me. If I’d known they were there I’d have brought tea along, joined them at the nearby bronze table, and reflected. Such determined and far-sighted women in Canada, plus Britain’s Emmeline Pankhurst who fought for women’s right to vote, set western women

on the road we are fortunate to travel today. Clambering on up to Canada’s Parliament I’m more impressed than I anticipate. Imposing portals, marble halls, chambers, and art depicting historic faces, names and dates which shaped my adopted nation were expected. More surprising, however, are the Library of Parliament at the back of the complex, and the Memorial Chamber located in the Peace Tower. I must still be tuned in to Nellie and friends, because I take particular note See OTTAWA / Page 10

Introducing our Implant Series... Q: Dental Implants intrigue me, but my job is in sales which means I am always visiting and talking with clients. I am concerned about my appearance after implant surgery. Will I have noticeable bruising and swelling (similar to when my wisdom teeth were removed) and will my speech be affected during treatment? A: Excellent questions. First let’s address your concerns about appearance. This is an important question because it touches on your health history, whether any other family members bruise easily or whether any of the medications you take such as Aspirin can lead to excessive bleeding. You should be aware of any genetic conditions in your family history, which may cause excessive bleeding. If you can answer ‘NO” to these questions then there is a good chance for little or no bleeding. When your wisdom teeth were removed they may have been impacted which would have required complicated surgical extractions where the extent of the incision and the time required to remove them were deciding factors for bruising and swelling. Generally speaking, the small incision required for a single implant is minor surgery and usually won’t lead to bruising. If multiple implants are being placed, the most important factor in bruising is your tendency to bleed followed by the skill and site of placement and time required for surgery. The more the gum and surrounding bone are manipulated during surgery, the greater the chance of postoperative bruising. There are techniques that can help decrease bruising, swelling, pain and speed up healing that can be readily employed if this is of major concern to the patient. When a tooth is removed there are a variety of ways of replacing it so that the patient never leaves the office without an aesthetic replacement. In our office we typically take an impression of the tooth to be removed before surgery and fabricate a small replacement bridge that is bonded to the neighbouring tooth after tooth removal and implant placement resulting in no gap or space. The patient’s speech is not affected and the tooth looks like the real thing. Your doctor will plan out the whole procedure with you so you know what you’ll look like throughout the entire process. Our office will be happy to perform a thorough FREE examination* to determine if you are a suitable candidate for tooth replacement with a dental implant and discuss your potential risks for bruising and swelling. For further information please call or visit us at:

Ottawa is a walkable city From page 9

of gleaming brass plaques honouring service women and nurses in the Memorial Chamber. Far above me the Peace Tower Carillon sports 53 bells weighing 66 tonnes. Satiated with history, architecture and politics, I’m now off to prowl the eclectic ByWard Market in search of BeaverTails. If they were good enough for Barack Obama, they have to be good enough for me. And so they are. Warm, sugary, handmade, the ‘floated’ (aka deep fried) pastries are my perfect post-Parliament reward. I’d lobby for them any day. Ready to relax, I’m glad my Lord Elgin Hotel room is just minutes by foot up the road near the War Me-

morial. Still on my week’s agenda are the Museums of Civilization and Modern Art (walking shoes are key in this conveniently walk-able museumfriendly city), a Rideau Canal cruise and a ghost tour. Aircraft have featured largely in my life so, despite Saturday showers, I’m taking a 30-minute bus ride to the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. I’m delighted to find Lower Mainland pilot Bill Cowan’s Ray Ban Gold Pitts Special parked at the entrance. It brought back memories of Bill, George Kirbyson, Al Hauff and Rod Ellis (formerly The Canadian Reds) thrilling Abbotsford International Airshow attendees with their aerobatic talents in the late 1980s.

Yay or nay to scones or pastries? From page 10

Though well laid out in a single floor hanger-like building, I am surprised – despite the name – to find little space program history. The aircraft collection and memorabilia still made this a worthwhile side trip. Sunday being a day of rest (even on holiday), I’m booked for brunch on the Wakefield Steam Train to admire the autumn scenery while resting my weary feet. The 93-ton heritage steam engine

choofs merrily along between Gatineau Hills clad in brilliant autumn colours and the Gatineau River. Personable tour guides, flanked by local musicians, share area anecdotes. Arrival at Wakefield means everyone offloads to browse village souvenir shops while the locomotive is pivoted on Canada’s last operating manual turntable. Then, it’s “All aboard!” for the return journey. On Monday, my departure looms. What better way to ad-

Sullivan’s Vault:

journ an inaugural Capitol meeting than via tea (and a champagne toast) at the illustrious Fairmont Château Laurier. Rain taps the windows. Parliament is etched in the distance. My major debates are: which tea shall I vote for, and it is ‘yea, or ‘nay’ to scones and clotted cream, cheese, or perfect pastries? A premier way to bid Ottawa, “Adieu”. – Ursula Maxwell-Lewis is a journalist and photographer with a passion for eclectic travel tales. Find her on Twitter @YouTravel

Falcon, Cadieux in Clark’s new cabinet Two local MLAs have held onto cabinet positions in premier Christy Clark’s smaller, new executive council. Both Kevin Falcon and Stephanie Cadieux were sworn into cabinet during the installation ceremony Monday at Government House in Victoria. Falcon (Surrey-Cloverdale) is B.C.’s new deputy premier and finance minister, moving from the health portfolio. First-term MLA Stephanie Cadieux (Surrey-Panorama) moves to Labour, Citizens’ Services, and Open Government from Community, Sport and Cultural Development. Falcon told Black Press he accepted his new duties and was looking forward to a referendum to decide the fate of the Harmonized Sales Tax. He laughed off comments he made the night Clark won the B.C. Liberal Party leadership, when he’d said, “Don’t make me finance minister under any circumstances.” Falcon said Monday he will do “an information job,” not a “sales job” in preparing for the vote on the issue that triggered a leadership change. At 18 ministers, Clark’s cabinet is smaller than her predecessor Gordon Campbell’s. Shuswap MLA George Abbot remains education minister, while Abbotsford-West MLA Mike de Jong will take over the health ministry. Also close to Cloverdale, Langley MLA Mary Polak moves from children and family development to aboriginal relations and Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA

Lt.-Gov. Stephen L. Point watches Stephanie Cadieux as she swears in as labour minister earlier this week.

Rich Coleman is minister of energy and mines and housing. New minister of social development, Harry Bloy, got the largest cheer from the crowd watching the ceremony – likely because he was the lone sitting MLA to endorse Clark’s bid for the party leadership. Blair Lekstrom, who resigned from cabinet over the way the Liberals introduced the Harmonized Sales Tax, is the new transportation minister. Barry Penner is again B.C.’s Attorney General. – With files from Black Press

Q A

SUSANNE FIGUEIRA

How should I handle entering into a multiple offer? When you’ve found the house you’d like to purchase the last thing you want is to have to compete with other potential buyers in a multiple offer situation — especially in hot real estate markets By pre-qualifying for a mortgage, you will be aware of your ceiling price. Putting down the biggest deposit you can afford, can also help establish to sellers that you’re serious about buying their property. Have your Real Estate Agent research to learn what the fair market value for the house you’re interested in. Don’t add unusual requests, terms or conditions to your offer. Additional clauses contingent upon any extenuating circumstances can cause headache to vendors, who may have another offer at the exact price you’re tendering, but one without any loopholes. By making a “clean” or firm offer, you stand a better chance at getting what you want. If you know that the homeowner has a certain closing date in mind which differs slightly from yours, offer to meet their ideal terms So before you engage in a multiple offer, arm yourself with credit pre-approval, a little research, heightened market value awareness and a great realtor.

Q

My brake warning light & ABS lights are on. Am I safe to drive?

A

If your brake warning light is on it could be you forgot to release the parking or emergency brake before you moved from a stationary position or the brake pedal switch may not be working properly. If the brake warning light comes on when you apply the brakes you could have a situation in which you are low on brake fluid or have a loss of brake fluid due to mechanical failure. Brake fluid loss can be dangerous and cause the brakes to fail. ABS or anti lock brake light indicates a fault with in the ABS system and should be looked at. In an emergency situation you may not have the braking ability you thought. In any of the above situations it is never safe to drive with warning lights on and it should be inspected / diagnosed by a qualified service professional.

Q

I have been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis. Can Acupuncture help?

A

The plantar fascia attaches from the heel on the undersurface of the foot to the base of the toes. Inflammation and thickening of the plantar fascia causes pain. The pain is generally aggravated by weight bearing and is worse during the first few steps in the morning. Acupuncture is used to promote natural healing, reduce or relieve pain and improve function and weight bearing of the foot. It is important to identify the biomechanical factors which may have caused the plantar fasciitis. These include tight hamstring and calf muscles, weak core stabilizing muscles of the pelvis, hip and lower back, poor spinal alignment/joint mechanics and faulty foot mechanics coupled with inadequate footwear. Acupuncture can be very effective on its own or when used together with other modalities such as laser, ultrasound, strapping and deep tissue massage techniques. A customized exercise program is essential to restore muscle flexibility, strength and a balanced posture of the lower limb and foot. A custom foot orthotic may be required for flat and high arched feet.

A Q A

I bought a new laptop but the wireless doesn’t work. What options do I have? Try reinstalling the drivers and check the wireless switch on your laptop. If these two options don’t work you’ll need to replace the internal wireless card or use a USB wireless adapter or if it has a PCMCIA slot use a PCMCIA wireless card. My mother lives in a rest home and really needs a new computer but she will rather fight than switch. What do I do? (Her computer barely works) We’re very familiar with this and we will help. I’m looking for a mainboard with an AM3 socket & slots to put my DDR2 Ram into and a PCI-e slot. Yes, why let all that Ram go to waste? Try an Asus M4A785-M SKT-AM3/AM2+ AMD785/SB710 3PCI/1PCI-E x16 4D-DDR2-1066 MHz SATA HDMI DVI D-SUB MATX in stock for $99 What Motherboard Sockets are still readily available new? Socket 775, 1156, 1155,1366, AM2 & of course AM3 now. Does this mean if my computer’s motherboard fails I can have it replaced without having to buy a new computer? Definitely!
