Something in the maize? It’s been a challenging year, but the maze is ﬁnally here

‘Desperate need’ for new Surrey schools
It’s estimated there will be as many as 12,000 students in portables by the time more schools are built.
5,000 students. While Stromberg has heard an announcement may be on the way from the government, she said the need for immediate
capital funding is urgent. Surrey School Board chair Laurae McNally agreed. “Oh my God, yes. There is a desperate need for new schools in Surrey,” McNally said. “We needed it like yesterday. We needed (new schools) four, five years ago.” About 900 new residents move to Surrey every month and 30 per cent of those new neighbours are under the age of 19, McNally said. “We truly do not fit the mold of any other school district,” she said. “It’s been an uphill battle and those (committee) parents are working very hard.” McNally said that usually people hear about enrolment declines and schools closing in other B.C. school districts, but that’s not the case in Surrey. The committee is urging Surrey residents to write, call or email their local MLA, the provincial ministers for education and finance and the premier to express their concerns on the issue.
Sci-Fi TV series Fringe will be filming scenes at several landmarks in historic downtown Cloverdale today. Crews are filing inside one of the oldest businesses in town, Dann’s Electronics at 5657 176 Street, this afternoon before moving up the street to the cafe at the Clover Inn. The one-day shoot is expected to wrap up at 9 p.m., and the production will be packed up and gone about an hour later. There will be some parking restrictions in effect as a result; limited mostly to the 5700-block of 176 and 176A Streets, and the 17500 block of 56A Avenue. The J. J. Abrams-produced series is set in Boston, where the FBI’s Fringe Division explores unexplained phenomena that seems to be part of a larger pattern with the help of an institutionalized scientist played by John Nobel. The show also stars Anna Torv, Lance Reddick and Vancouver’s Joshua Jackson. It’s been described as Lost-meets-the-X-Files. Season 4 premieres Sept. 23 on Fox. – Cloverdale Reporter
Famously friendly school crossing guard Blanche Vantol assists pedestrians at Martha Currie Elementary. Speed limits will again be in effect in school zones weekdays.
Avoid school zones, BCAA urges drivers By Jennifer Lang It’s back to class Tuesday, which means drivers will need to watch for excited children walking and biking to school, or hopping off busses. Along with the usual reminder to slow down and pay attention, this September the BCAA Road Safety Foundation has gone one step further, recommending motorists avoid driving through school zones if possible throughout the school year. “That goes for parents too,” says David Dunne, director of road safety programs for the foundation. Parents who drive their children to school actually posse the greatest danger to child pedestrians and cyclists
around schools, he says. “The congestion caused by so many vehicles creates a very dangerous environment.” Drivers are reminded to pay particular attention near schools during the morning and afternoon hours, and to obey the 30 km/h speed limit in school zones weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Injuries to child pedestrians are highest in September and October, the foundation says, with children aged five to 14 years at the greatest risk. Speeding is the most common offence, but reports of drivers making U-turns, stopping in no-stoping zones, backing up onto crosswalks, rolling through stop signs, ignoring crossing
guards, and letting children out from the driers side onto oncoming traffic are also common, if dangerous, habits. Children also need to be aware of dangerous distractions, says LInda Lawlor, BCAA’s school safety program coordinator. “Kids should not be talking or texting on their cell phones when they are in intersections or school zones,” she says. Strong research indicates talking on a cell phone while crossing the street may increase a child’s risk of being struck by a vehicle by up to one-third, the foundation reports.

– Black Press
By Tricia Leslie As the start of the school year approaches, a group of concerned Surrey residents are hoping to highlight the need for new schools in the rapidly expanding city. Overcrowding is extremely serious at Surrey schools and there has been a lack of capital funding since 2005, said Linda Stromberg, a member of an ad-hoc committee formed in March to address the issue. “The new Adams Road school in Cloverdale opened in January of this year, and two portables have been added,” Stromberg told Black Press. “Our kids are our future and our education system is not a place where we should be economizing.” Stromberg – who serves on the ad-hoc committee with representatives from the city, business community, teachers union, CUPE, district parent advisory councils and students – noted it will take up to five years and $273 million to build the schools Surrey needs today. (See letter to the editor, page 4.) And, she added, before construction of those schools is complete, the city’s school population will grow by 4,000 to

Schools are feeling budget cuts To the editor; As the school year approaches, CUPE members who work in the Surrey School District take time to reflect on the past year and prepare for September 2011. Our Education Assistants and Childcare Workers work with students who need specialized support ensuring that all students can be successful. These front-line workers see the impact of how budget cuts have affected the services that the students receive. The amount of unpaid time that Education Assistants and CCWs put in has been well documented.
Our caretakers are finishing their annual summer cleaning. They felt the impact of the cuts last year when all their sections were increased by an average of 1,000 to 1,500 square feet, the equivalent of a medium size house. The clerical staff earned their vacation time. Even though the district continues to grow, there were cuts to clerical positions last year for budget reasons. Clerks in schools feel more and more pressure with the addition of programs like Strong Start and Community Schools being added. Working in the public school system is a great job and it is also a labour of love. Stu-
To the editor
dents are at the center of it all, no matter what job CUPE members do. But for the CUPE staff that will be there to open up schools in September it will be a challenging year. We are bargaining for a new collective agreement. Our schools have been chronically underfunded for years and now in Surrey we are feeling the effects of overcrowding. Regardless of these challenges, we look forward to welcoming new and returning students in September. Janice Meehan President, CUPE 728 Surrey Schools Support Staff
Millions needed for new schools The provincial government needs to provide funds – now – to build new schools to meet Surrey’s growth To the editor; This school year, 7,300 Surrey students will attend classes in portables and over 3,000 will attend schools with extended schedules. Even the brand new Adams Road Elementary School, which opened six months ago, now has two portables.
$273 million is needed for additional permanent classrooms for the number of students we have today, but before these schools are built, it’s estimated there will be over 12,000 students in “temporary” classrooms. That is why it is so important that the provincial government provides
these funds this year (so construction can begin) and then continues to provide the necessary capital funding each year to build the schools to meet Surrey’s growth. We have received funding for seismic upgrades for full day kindergarten – but we have not
received funding approval for schools for five years now. Our children are the future for both Surrey and the province. We must invest in them today. Linda Stromberg Concerned parent and Ad Hoc Committee member

Hundreds turned out for a candlelight vigil last week in Surrey’s Holland Park to remember Jack Layton.

Surrey MLAs Sue Hammell, Jagrup Brar, Harry Bains and Bruce Ralston were on hand to pay their respects, along with Surrey-North MP Jasbir Sandu. The vigil ended after 45 minutes with a moment of silence. Layton was cremated last Saturday after a state funeral at Roy Thompson hall in Toronto that was televised across Canada. – Black Press

Ask the Dentist How to best straighten crooked teeth….
By Dr. Andrew Willoughby, DMD
Q: My daughter is 16 years old with very crooked teeth. She is a beautiful, outgoing young lady but self-conscious about her crooked smile. I am afraid if I don’t have her teeth straightened it could impact her self-conﬁdence and the way others perceive her. I’ve heard there are new technologies to help straighten teeth without the need for metal braces. What exactly are my options?

A: You are correct when you say a crooked smile can have a dramatic impact on her interaction with others; this is a known fact. It can also create difﬁculty in proper brushing and ﬂossing; can lead to tooth decay; abnormal wear on teeth/tooth mobility; tension in chewing muscles; clicking and popping in jaw joints; headaches and TMJ pain. Not to mention accumulation of plaque and calculus – which leads to gum disease and eventually bone loss and lack of tooth support... You are making the correct decision to help your daughter straighten her teeth. In recent years an alternative to metal braces called Invisalign has become popular with teenagers and adults. It helps patients of all ages feel conﬁdent in their smiles and themselves. The Invisalign system is actually a series of clear plastic virtually invisible aligner trays, which gradually move teeth to achieve a great smile and proper bite. By using a series of clear, removable aligners that are changed about every 2 – 3 weeks, Invisalign gradually moves your teeth towards the smile you’ve always wanted. The aligners are made of a hard clear plastic and are removable, allowing easy brushing and ﬂossing for proper hygiene. Additionally, regular dental check-ups and cleanings become easier since the aligner trays are popped out for improved access – quicker, faster, more thorough visits. This is the single biggest advantage over metal braces because often accumulation of plaque and calculus around standard brackets can lead to decalciﬁcation of surrounding teeth and appearance of unsightly white decalciﬁcation spots on
teeth. Another distinct advantage is that removable trays make an active lifestyle easier to accommodate. When you are playing sports or an instrument there are no metal wires or brackets to irritate cheeks or gums. IS INVISALIGN TEEN TREATMENT AS EFFECTIVE AS TRADITIONAL BRACES? In the hands of a skilled practitioner and when worn according to doctors recommendation, Invisalign can be as effective as traditional braces for many types of treatment. HOW WILL I KNOW HOW OFTEN MY CHILD IS WEARING HIS OR HER ALIGNERS? Teen aligner trays come with built-in compliance indicators that estimate approximate time your teen spends wearing the aligners. Indicators are designed to fade from blue to clear as a gauge of approximate wear time so you can easily monitor your child’s compliance. WHAT HAPPENS IF MY CHILD LOSES ONE OR BOTH OF THEIR ALIGNERS? Should this occur, tells the child’s Dentist right away. He or she may ask the patient to start wearing their previous set of aligners and the Dentist will order a new set of replacement aligner trays. In our ofﬁce Invisalign Teen treatment includes up to 6 individual replacement aligners at no charge. HOW MUCH DOES INVISALIGN COST? The cost of Invisalign is usually slightly less than conventional braces because aligners require little manipulation or maintenance by the doctor so less time is spent at the doctors ofﬁce. Over 1 million patients are now smiling thanks to Invisalign. If you would like to book a FREE* Invisalign consultation in our ofﬁce please visit:

Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley haven’t yet had the usual streak of hot summer weather. But sunny skies and warmer temperatures sure made it feel like summer for competitors and spectators alike last weekend at the Cloverdale Skateboard Park. It hosted the second-to-last leg of Hippie Mike’s Tour de Surrey skateboard competition.
Cool summer meant less smog, fewer fires Dearth of 30-degree days translated into no air quality alerts By Jeff Nagel A cooler than normal summer has put a damper on holiday fun but it’s also left many Lower Mainland residents breathing easier. No air quality warnings have been issued this year, due to an absence of hot weather in the Lower Mainland and an unusually low number of forest fires in the B.C. Interior. By this time last year, two air quality advisories had been issued spanning a total of six days. The hottest weather so far was last weekend – 30.6 degrees in Abbotsford Saturday and 27.4 in Vancouver. But that was the first time Abbotsford topped 30 so far in 2011, according to Environment Canada meteorologist David Jones, adding there would usually be about seven 30-plus days by now. “That’s quite unusual,” he said. “It’s been a long cold spring, a slow start to summer and a total absence of hot spells.” The cooler weather has been widespread throughout B.C., he said, adding that’s helped keep forest fires down and helped with air quality in Metro
Why Pay More?
Vancouver. “You need heat waves and big ridges of unchanging stagnant air to get air quality issues,” Jones said. “And you need long stretches of hot dry air to create fire risk. We just haven’t had either of those this year.” Metro Vancouver air quality planner Julie Saxton said ozone concentrations tend to build when it’s hot and there’s lots of sunshine. Last year’s advisories were driven mainly by fine particulate from wildfire smoke, she added. “We’ve been very lucky this summer that we haven’t had poor air quality affecting us,” she said, but added a hot spell could still develop between now and mid-September. It’s the slowest year in at least the last 10 for wildfires, according to B.C.’s fire information centre. So far 469 fires have burned 11,782 hectares. An average year sees B.C. fight nearly 2,000 fires and lose almost 100,000 hectares. As a result, B.C. has sent nearly 2,000 firefighters out of province this year to assist with fires in Ontario, Alberta and Alaska. – Black Press

Students in Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary’s Interact Club, pictured at right with members of the Adams Road Elementary School Parent Advisory Council, helped raise money so elementary students will one day have a playground to play on. The high school students donated $500 towards a playground at the elementary school, which opened in January 2011, but lacks playground equipment – these funds aren’t included in capital budgets for new schools. The Interact Club raised money through sales of hot chocolate, manure, ice cream sales and cotton candy.

Contributed At the start of a new school year, most Surrey students can’t wait to find out who their teacher is and whether their friends will be in the same class. For the school, student placement is more than simple numbers. Classes are organized based on the intellectual, social and emotional development of students and their strengths, learning styles and work habits. Schools in the Surrey School District try to separate students who do not work well together, and also take into account teacher-student ratios. While the process is a balancing act in many ways, every effort is made to ensure the best outcome in terms of student achievement and the overall school experience. As much as possible, attempts are made to have balanced class sizes, however, based on the organization criteria, there may be compelling reasons for having one class smaller than another. Some small groups are deliberately kept together if they form a unique group for instructional purposes, as in the case of ESL students. Gender and social compatibility are also considered, and most classes will have close to an equal number of boys and girls. Children who exhibit learning disabilities, as well as others with vision or hearing disadvantages are also included and considered in the organizational plan. While participating in regular classrooms, these children receive additional support and assistance in their learning programs from specialist teachers in regular classrooms and resource rooms and may also receive assistance from trained teacher assistants and/or a helping teacher. Teachers and parents, too, play a role in determining class organization. Teachers have knowledge of the academic needs of returning students, while parents can provide essential personal, educational or social information about a child to assist with his or her placement. Generally, initial decisions about student placement are made in June but these early placements are subject to the realities of the number of students who appear in September and can change during the first few weeks of school. Children are sometimes unhappy with their placement and may need parent support to gain understanding and acceptance. Students usually adapt to their new classrooms within the first few weeks, especially if parents can help explain how decisions are made in a way children can understand.

HST rejected The stage is set for a dismantling of the the harmonized sales tax by the B.C. government, following its rejection by a majority of voters in referendum results released last Friday. The HST was rejected by 54.73 per cent of eligible voters, Elections BC reported. The government has promised to abide by a simple majority of voters. Voting by constituency shows a split mainly along party lines. The strongest vote against the HST was more than 75 per cent in the NDP-held Surrey-Green Timbers and more than 72 per cent in Surrey-Newton and Vancouver-Kingsway, the home constituency of NDP leader Adrian Dix. Kevin Falcon While two local Liberal strongholds – Surrey-White Rock, and Finance Minister Kevin Falcon’s home constituency of Surrey-Cloverdale voted narrowly in favour of keeping the tax, a third, Surrey-Panorama, voted 53.3 per cent for scrapping it. Falcon has estimated that scrapping the HST will cost the province about $3 billion in the next few years. The B.C. government will have to borrow to pay back the $1.6 billion transition fund from the federal government, with a payment schedule that will have to be negotiated with Ottawa.

Are there any new natural medicines for memory loss?
A combination of DHA and Colostrinin had shown promising results. Fish oil is a combination of DHA and EPA, but there is a preparation made from squid (High DHA® from Metagenics) that has predominantly DHA and that is what you want for memory loss. Colostrinin (CogniSure® from Metagenics) is a peptide complex isolated from bovine colostrum. It was researched in Poland and found to prevent the formation of beta-amyloid radicles that account for brain cell degeneration. One tablet is to be chewed every other day for 3 weeks. This course is repeated 10 times with a 2 week intermission between courses. People described the benefit as “having a clearer mind”, and “less forgetful”.
I found a home that I really loved and made what my realtor thought was a very good offer on it. The sellers took a couple of days to get back to us and when they did their response was that they were not selling their house anymore. I was very upset that I had wasted so much time trying to buy a home that in the end, the seller did not want to sell. How can this happen?
A seller is not bound to sell their home until they have accepted a contract with no vendor subjects. Until that happens, they have the right to change their mind. Sometimes circumstances will change for the seller between the time a listing is taken and when the offer comes in and they have a good reason to take their home off the market. The good news is that often these properties come on the market again when the sellers are more certain of their plans.
“Community Pharmacy Serving Cloverdale for Over 50 Years”
B.C. farmers will be disadvantaged By Kurt Langmann Perhaps the biggest irony of the referendum defeat of the HST in B.C. is that the “working poor” of this province will still not be able to afford to dine out once the former PST exemption is restored to restaurant tabs. Yet B.C.’s agricultural industry, which provides nutritious, locally-grown food to the public free of any taxes, will be forced once again to hand over $15- to $20 million a year in PST to the provincial treasury. A return to the PST/GST means that B.C.’s food producers will be at a disadvantage in both local and export markets,” says Garnet Etsell, the chair of the B.C. Agriculture Council (BCAC) and a Mount Lehman poultry farmer. “Agriculture will face higher input costs that are no longer balanced out with investment tax credits made available under the HST. B.C. farmers will pay more to produce food that is tax-free for consumers – an unsustainable pattern that would add to the significant financial pressures many B.C. farmers and ranchers are currently facing,” says Etsell. Etsell cited examples of this tax disadvantage, “primarily on the capital expenditure side. Under the HST if you built a new barn you would get that back, and under the PST you would pay seven percent on the materials and you would not get that back.” In the case of smaller farm operations Etsell said smaller farm tractors were PST assessed while larger tractors were not. “Any vehicles — trucks, tractors — farmers could claim the HST back but not the PST,” said Etsell. The old PST administration “was also a very awkward process. The tax exempt list did not keep up with improvements in technology. It was not a timely process, we’d get one crack a year at adding things to the ‘shopping list,’” said Etsell. “B.C. is the only province in the country where agriculture showed net revenue losses in the past number of years. Many of our farmers are already hurting.” Following the announcement of the defeat of the HST last week, Premier Christy Clark’s office issued a statement pledging a return to the former PST exempt list that existed prior to the implementation of the HST. Etsell says that the BCAC, “will be having a chat with the government about this. “Simply reintroducing the old PST system is a poor option for B.C. agriculture. In an effort to improve industry competitiveness, the BCAC will also be looking to government to change other tax policies such as the Carbon Tax, which has had a crippling effect on several agriculture sectors,” said Etsell. “Food should be tax-free.” – Aldergrove Star

What does ‘Virtual Memory Too Low’ mean? Too many applications are being used at the same time. The ram is exhausted and it’s starting to use swap space on your hard drive. What can I do about it? Install more ram & or close off some of your applications. What’s the difference between an i7 cpu as opposed to an i3 or a i5? In the Intel “i” family, bigger is generally better between processors, however watch the size of the cache it uses as well (the larger the cache the better). Usually the more $ you pay the better the cpu. Don’t forget about the competition AMD who have steadily been doing their homework as the big brand name often end too quickly in recycle bins. Do you still sell new & used laptops & computers? Yes we do! And all the parts that go with them! My computer isn’t running as it should. I don’t want to unhook all those cables. Do you do service calls? Yes, we service computers on-site and here at the store as well.

As an American citizen residing in Canada, do I have to file tax returns with the US? The American taxation system is very complex and unlike virtually every other country in the world, it taxes individuals based on citizenship rather than residency. The IRS requires all US citizens living in Canada to file US tax returns annually. Often no additional US tax is required to be paid since credit is given for taxes already paid to Canada. In addition, American citizens must annually disclose their foreign bank accounts and other holdings such as investment accounts, GIC’s, and RRSP’s even if they have no US taxes owing. This issue is becoming increasing important since the IRS is moving towards requiring Canadian banking institutions to disclose financial information about their American clients to the IRS. The penalties for non-compliance can be shockingly high. Therefore, I typically advise all American citizens who are living in Canada to consult with an expert on US taxation (which I am not) to ensure that they are complying with the US tax laws.
