Casino isn’t budging on longer season at Fraser Downs By Jennifer Lang Amid a growing clamour by horsemen to extend the harness racing season at Fraser Downs in 2012, owner Great Canadian Gaming Corp. is standing firm. A split, six-month season is the best way to preserve horse racing at both of the company’s B.C. racetracks, Fraser Downs and Hastings Park, where the 2011 thoroughbred season gets underway Saturday. “When you have standardbred and thoroughbred racing, the last thing you want to do is to have them compete for the entertainment dollar,” Howard Blank, Great Canadian’s vice president of marketing said, responding to the decision by B.C.’s standardbred industry to press for a longer season, warning thousands of jobs across the Fraser Valley are at stake. “We said that [a 10-month season] was something we didn’t feel was viable and the horse racing committee agreed,” he said. “The six month season is the way to go.” Blank said Great Canadian and the committee studying ways to keep

B.C.’s horse racing sectors viable agree the two racetracks must avoid competing for customers. Great Canadian is hoping to finalize the fall 2011 and 2012 racing seasons by the end of May, earlier than last year, when race days at Fraser Downs were cut by 30 per cent and the 2011 season was temporarily suspended. It’s too soon to tell whether the Public Gaming and Enforcement Branch will approve a longer season in 2012 – or if eight conditional race dates will be added to the fall 2011 schedule, bringing the total number of race days this year to 82. According to a spokesperson at the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General, the Gaming Enforcement Branch will be in a better position to determine that once Great Canadian’s application is received and performance indicators from the January to April component of the 2011 season wrapping up tonight are assessed. Average race handles, the number of B.C.-owned horse starts, and the number of horses per race are among the factors that will determine if those conditional dates are approved.

Tumbling for Japan


These cuties are just a few of the hundreds of kids who did handstands to help Cloverdale’s Splitz Gymnastics club raise $6,967 for earthquake relief efforts in Japan. Students – many of them as young as these kids – collected pledges and performed the handstands all this week as part of Handstands for Humanity. Pledges were matched by Splitz.

Petition enlists racing support By Jennifer Lang Local horsemen – and women – are stepping up pressure to extend the harness racing season at Fraser Downs. Last Friday, Sandra Roberts, a standardbred horse owner and trainer at Cloverdale’s landmark racetrack began collecting signatures on a petition showing community support for B.C.’s harness racing industry. Insiders say the split, six-month racing season – winding down tonight at Fraser Downs for summer break just as thoroughbred racing begins at Vancouver’s Hastings Park – has been a disaster, and threatens to wipe out thousands of local jobs here and across the Fraser Valley if it continues next year. She hopes to collect at least 1,000 sig-

a break, but too short for a viable winter/ spring season. In a rare show of unity, the membership has decided to ask for a 10-month racing season in 2012, a request that’s been rejected by the company that operates Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino, the provincial gaming policy branch, and the B.C. Horse Racing Industry Management Committee. “We want to show that this is not just a bunch of horsemen,” Roberts said of the petition. “It’s the whole community supporting us in this.” Those who make a living at the colourful red barns at Fraser Downs are worried about their livelihoods, she said, adding See BARNS/ Page 2

Dazzling drill team needs bling By Jennifer Lang The equestrian drill team that makes snazzy grand entrances at the Cloverdale Rodeo hosts a dinner and dance Saturday night. Bit-A-Bling is raising money for uniforms, transportation, arena fees for practice and, of course, bling for the horses. “Believe it or not, all that glitter we use is expensive,” laughs Hanne Olsen, the team’s uniform coordinator, who takes a mobile phone call while riding her horse.

The drill team formed in 2007 and currently has about 20 members. Most live in Langley or Delta, but they’re a big presence in Cloverdale, where they’re a crowd favourite in the Rodeo parade. They open all rodeo events at the Stetson Bowl, galloping into the ring in formation, and carrying out choreographed moves that take months to perfect. Bit-A-Bling also performs at other events in B.C., including the Ashcroft Rodeo and

the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo. The April 16 event at Windsor Stables in Aldergrove will help cover transportation costs and hay supplies for the horses at performances. The evening includes dancing, a silent auction, and a performance by Susie Francis and the Canadian All Stars. Tickets are $25. Doors open at 6 p.m., dinner is at 7 p.m. Call Corrie at 604-856-6819 for more information. Windsor Stables is located at 25241 Fraser Highway.

Barns to get shuttered From page one

circulating a petition is one way for her to try to save jobs and a way of life. Not all of the owners and drivers live in Cloverdale, Roberts said. Some live in Washington state, or other parts of B.C. and even Alberta. They help the local economy because they stay in hotels and eat at restaurants when they’re in town, she said. In addition to providing jobs at the racetrack, she said the barns contribute to the local economy because goods and services are purchased in the Cloverdale area, including animal feed, veterinarian care and farrier services. Adding to the pressure of the shorter season implemented for 2011 is the fact that at the end of April – two weeks after the final race day – Great Canadian Gaming is closing four of the six barns at Fraser Downs over the summer.

Roberts said the move will force hundreds of horses out by month’s end. She’s worried the situation pits owners and trainers against each other because the remaining stalls are offered at a first-come, first-serve basis. The horses drawn for tonight’s race card – the final race of the spring season – are at a particular disadvantage in finding stables, she said. She estimates the barns are home to approximately 450 horses as the season draws to a close, but there’s perhaps room for 180 horses to stable over the long summer break until racing resumes in October. Copies of the petition are at the following locations for those wanting to sign: Newmac Animal Feeds at 17967 56 Ave., Dee’s Brazilian Shoes at 5757 176 Street, Tricia’s Gems at 5679 176 Street, and at Destination Cloverdale – home to both the Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce and the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association – at 5748 176 Street.

Long-time volunteer Randy Miller and Surrey retiree Gary Hollick were also elected to the 2011 board of directors at the exhibition association’s annual general meeting April 5. The newly-elected board has selected the rest of its executive committee: Rob Marshall will serve as second vice president; Ken Kachur has been reelected treasurer; Gerry Spielmacher is Country Fair committee chair; and Miller is the 2011 volunteer chair, a position he also held last year. The rest of the board members are current appointees Peggy White (Surrey Board of Trade), George Siudut and Lisa White from the City of Surrey, Marvin Hunt from Surrey City Council, and Bill Reid is the provincial representative. The association oversees 10 staff members and approximately 300 volunteers throughout the year and during the annual rodeo.

No shortage of election candidates Nine candidates had filed in South Surrey - White Rock - Cloverdale by the close of nominations earlier this week By Jennifer Lang An unbridled wave of election fever appears to be sweeping over South Surrey–White Rock– Cloverdale, where three new candidates came forward in advance of this week’s close of nominations. That adds up to nine hopefuls vying for the seat held by Conservative incumbent Russ Hiebert since 2004. Two more independents – Kevin Peter Donohoe and David Hawkins, a former B.C. Reform Party candi-

date – and Progressive Canadian Party candidate Brian Marlatt are now among the list of confirmed candidates, according to Elections Canada. Marlatt, a former Progressive Conservative, also ran in 2008 and 2006 under the Progressive Canadian banner. Hawkins, also listed as the current leader of the B.C. Reform party, ran in Surrey-White Rock in the 2009 provincial election. Previously confirmed candidates include

Christian Heritage Party candidate Mike Schouten, Liberal candidate Hardy Staub, New Democrat Susan Keeping, Green Party candidate Larry Colero and independent conservative Aart Looye. Canadians go to the polls May 2. An all-candidates forum for South SurreyWhite Rock-Cloverdale is planned for Wednesday (April 20), in White Rock, hosted by the South Surrey and White Rock Chamber of Commerce.

The forum gets underway at 7 p.m. at Star of the Sea Hall at 15262 Pacific Avenue. Submit questions to, by fax at 604-536-4994, or by hand to 100 15261 Russell Avenue. Questions may be directed to individual or all candidates. There will also be an opportunity to submit written questions from the floor. Tuesday night (April 19), also in White Rock, the Council of Canadians is also hosting an all candidates forum. It

will run from 7 to 9 p.m. at First United Church, 15385 Semiahmoo Avenue.

‘MIKE’ LIKERS Mike Schouten, the lone Cloverdale resident in the 2011 federal election race, says his campaign signs have been disappearing across the electoral district. The CHP candidate doubts the thefts are politically motivated. He suspects the signs – printed with an “I like Mike” logo – are a col-

lector’s item. “They think, ‘That’s great. I know somebody named Mike,’” he said, explaining the signs have been removed but not the posts holding them up.

FEE GALLER at the Tate


By Jennifer Lang Two familiar faces remain at the helm of the association overseeing the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair. Long-serving members Shannon Claypool and Penny Smythe have been re-elected to the top executive positions of the Cloverdale Rodeo and Exhibition Association’s board of directors. It’s Claypool’s third, one-year term as president. Smythe will serve as first vice president for the 2011 term, and rodeo chair, a position she held last year. The board has lost one of its most popular and longest-serving members and rodeo volunteers, Rocky Rockwell, who stepped down in 2010 after putting in more than 30 years of service. At the association’s Annual General Meeting April 5, Rockwell’s enormous contribution was recognized.

YOUTHFUL SPIRIT Loggers sports, hot air balloon rides, monster trucks, and a roller derby are just some of the ways the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair is reaching out to a younger demographic in 2011. With just a few weeks to go until the 65th annual rodeo and 122nd country fair May 20-23, preparations are hitting full stride. “We’re going to reach out more to our youth this year,” general manager Dave Melenchuk told members of the Clover-

dale Rodeo and Exhibition Association at the annual general meeting April 5, where he briefly outlined plans for the 2011 event. The West Coast Logging Show is back. As are monster truck rides for the kids. ReMax will be offering rides in its hot air balloon at least two hours a day during the fair. There will also be a women’s roller derby throughout the May long weekend – back after a 30-year absence. “It’s so far out it’s in,” Melenchuk said.

‘Incompetent, unresponsive’ Minister Bond must take decisive action To the editor; Re: “Shorter racing season has been devastating,” Cloverdale Reporter online edition, April 13 As a breeder and owner for seven years in this industry, I’m contemplating shutting down my operation. I now have more horses in Ontario than in B.C. due to the deterioration of the industry.

This has all happened as a result of the incompetent and unresponsive Horse Racing Management Committee established by the current government. Hopefully the new minister Shirley Bond will step in and take decisive action or this industry is doomed in B.C. “Gillspray” Via www.cloverdalereporter. com

they do not run a Liberal or an NDP candidate alone, so they don’t split their vote, and just admit to creating a coalition, in future. Meanwhile in B.C., where the NDP leadership hopefuls are being drowned out by the federal election, we have former NDP premier and former mayor of Vancouver Mike

Cloverdale Mason Guy Olsson, centre, says not many people know what it means to be a Freemason.

Secret society to lay its secrets bare

By Jennifer Lang Secret handshakes. Arcane symbols. Dark rituals inspiring wild conspiracy theories in film, fiction and popular culture. And, according to Guy Olsson, Freemasons are all around us, even right here in Cloverdale. He should know. Olsson is the Worshipful Master of the Cloverdale Mason Lodge, hosting an open house next Tuesday, offering the uninitiated a glimpse inside one of the world’s oldest secret societies. It’s the second time the lodge has held the event. Last year the evening drew 115 people – more than half were women, even though women can’t join. “They came with prospective mem-

bers and some members brought their wives and girlfriends,” he said. “It was a mix.” The evening was such a success, the lodge decided to make it an annual affair. It’s a chance for the curious to see a real Mason lodge room, he said, and find out what the group is all about, says Olsson, whose ringtone is the Imperial March from Star Wars. (It’s OK. Masons are in on the joke. The Cloverdale lodge’s slo-pitch softball team is called the Stonecutters, after the irreverent Simpsons sendup.) Olsson says curiosity about the fraternal order is booming, thanks to Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, its sequel, and the Hollywood film franSee FREEMASONS / Page 6

Honeymooners and the Simpsons to name but a few. By Dr. Andrew Willoughby, DMD I’m a dental phobic…. From page 5

Q: For as long as I can remember, I’ve had several gaps in my mouth. My remaining teeth have recently started to breakdown and cause increased jaw pain. The partial denture I wear is uncomfortable, loose fitting and looks terrible. I have been told I may be able to replace my missing teeth with dental implants but I have a real fear/phobia of dentists. I am embarrassed to say due to bad childhood dental experiences, I haven’t seen a dentist in years. When I have it was only because of extreme pain and I needed emergency dental care. Now I’m concerned if I put off treatment much longer, I will loose all my teeth. I don’t want dentures – I’m only 46!


Personalized service with your best interests in mind

A: Lets start by addressing your most important issue, – fear or anxiety of dental treatment. When it comes to ‘dental phobias’ you are not alone – amongst certain age groups more than 60% of patients have some fear of the dentist. The single biggest cause is a bad early childhood experience. For many patients (like yourself) these memories last a lifetime leading to dental avoidance. Dental phobias can range from fear of the needle, the drill, dental pain, choking or not being able to breath under the rubber dam. Severe dental phobic’s can experience a sense of claustrophobia. Fortunately, most dental procedures undertaken today are virtually pain free. These include many hard and soft tissue laser techniques that can be used to treat tooth decay and gum disease without the need for the dental drill or syringe (needle). In addition, as many as 10-15% of dental clinics now offer, painless conscious sedation techniques to help relax and calm the dental phobic, managing their specific dental anxiety(s). In our office, with a minor surgical procedure like placement of a dental implant, all patients are offered oral sedation, I.V. sedation or combination of both. When local anaesthesia is given, sedated patients feel little or nothing at all and rarely recall the injections. Sedated patients remain aware of surroundings and are responsive to verbal commands but are relaxed to the point where anxieties and apprehensions melt away. Sedated patients are unaware of the passage of time; a 3-hour appointment can easily feel like an easy 30-minute appointment. Sedated patients are extremely relaxed causing little or no associated muscle tension reducing perception of procedural pain. Effects of conscious sedation can last 12-24 hours post treatment, making patients drowsy. For this reason, all patients who choose sedation must arrange (in advance) for a friend or family member to pick up and drop off from our dental office. Finally, you mention that your remaining teeth are starting to breakdown; this is a common problem that many dental phobics suffer from. Without regular checkups and maintenance patients tend to loose more teeth, which means normal biting forces are now being distributed over less teeth. This increased biomechanical load leads to increased tooth movement, wear, fracture, and pain in surrounding jaw joints (TMJ) and muscles. I encourage you to investigate the option of dental implants because their placement may help correct issues of TMJ arthralgia and biomechanical overload caused by a collapsed bite. Our office would be delighted to show you the technology that deals with your concerns and determine if we can replace your partial denture with implants. Dr. Willoughby has been successfully placing and restoring dental implants since 1991 and holds 4 US Dental Implant Patents which in 2002, were licensed to the second largest dental implant manufacturer in the world.

The downside of keeping your winter tires on year round is that they wear out very quickly," In most conditions, you can usually get three or four seasons out of them before you have to replace the winter set when you're swapping them out with an all-season or summer tire. If you drive them year-round, the heat will wear away the specific winter tire compounds. You'll also sacrifice some cornering and grip if you leave them on throughout the year."

How do I determine the initial offer when buying a home?


Unless you have a buyer’s agent (we strongly recommend it), remember that the agent works for the seller. Make a point of asking him or her to keep your discussions and information confidential. Listen to your real estate agent’s advice, but follow your own instincts on deciding a fair price. Calculating your offer should involve several factors: what homes sell for in the area, the home’s condition, how long it’s been on the market, financing terms, and the seller’s situation. By the time you’re ready to make an offer, you should have a good idea of what the home is worth and what you can afford. And, be prepared for give-and-take negotiation, which is very common when buying a home. The buyer and seller may often go back and forth until they can agree on a price.



My car has gotten bouncy on the road over time. Is there anything I can do to restore the ride of my vehicle?


As drivers we adapt to the progressive deterioration of the shock absorbers in our vehicles. Most of the time we don’t recognize that the road handling characteristics have deteriorated until pointed out by a service professional. Worn shock absorbers can cause increased wear on other mechanical parts such as springs, steering gear, universal joints, differential, tires, suspension bushings, wheel bearings and ball joints. Poor shock absorbers can also contribute to poor road handling, worn tires, poor braking, hydroplaning & component wear. Shock absorbers keep the tires of your vehicle in contact with the road by dampening out excessive movement and bouncing. The rule of thumb for replacement is 80,000 - 100,000 km.

I have calcification of my shoulder. Will shockwave therapy help? Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is a new technology which uses high energy pulsations of ultrasonic waves to break down calcific deposits and scar tissue, improve circulation and promote healing by stimulating the body’s natural self healing process. ESWT is considered when the diagnosis is made and known to be responsive to ESWT, when conservative/alternative treatment has failed and when surgery or more invasive treatments are the last result. It is important to note that spinal alignment, scapula(shoulder blade) stability, posture correction, shoulder joint mobility/strength and good core stability are important in the treatment of calcification of the shoulder. ESWT has proved to be an effective treatment for calcification of the shoulder, chronic rotator cuff tendonitis and painful impingement of the shoulder joint. A physiotherapy assessment will help to identify the cause of injury and a comprehensive treatment program can help relieve the pain and restore function.
