jkurucz@thenownews.com Long before the advent of doggie daycares and yoga for pets, Joyce Johnstone was two stepping with Twinkle Toes. The 66-year-old Port Moody resident will be dancing alongside her 10-year-old border collie Twinkle Toes this weekend as the pair compete in New Westminster’s Seniors Have Talent showcase at the Sapperton Pensioners Hall. “A lot of people have never seen this before,” Johnstone said. “So I’m trying to get it a bit more

well-known. Most of the time when I talk to someone and tell them I do dog dancing, they have no idea what it is.” Just as the name suggests, dog dancing entails a human trainer taking the lead in a given dance, while the dog follows suit. And speaking of suits, no stone is left unturned when it comes to musical selections, props and accompanying outfits. Johnstone’s repertoire includes dancing to music ranging from old classics to opera tunes, while her wardrobe changes see her decked out CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

What our patients say... Neck and Shoulder Pain “On day one, it was difficult to move my head all the way left and right and now I can. I could not lift my left arm above my head and now I can. THE PAIN IS GONE! If I hurt myself again, I will treat with LASER Therapy.” Dennis Moore (63) Foot Pain “I had pain in my big toe for over a year but after having only 5 laser treatments the pain was gone. I am happy with the service and the friendly atmosphere. I highly recommend this safe, non-invasive therapy.” Theresa Kraynyk (81) Burn Injury “...My calf had made contact with a hot tail pipe of a Harley and the burn was just oozing. There was a noticeable improvement after one treatment, and after 3 in a row, it was as good as gone!” Debbie Moore (43) Sciatica “My GP could not offer any treatment other than pain killers and waiting it out. After six laser treatments I am now pain free and have resumed my active life style.” J.I. (70) Spinal Stenosis I was diagnosed with Central Canal Spinal Stenosis and was suffering with pain, bilateral foot drop and decreasing ability to walk. I had been recommended to do surgery to fix the pain. After 13 treatments of Laser Light Therapy, there was so much relief. I am no longer taking any pain medications. I have no tingling in my feet and am able to walk without my cane now. Vivian Tonietto (53)

Plantar Fasciitis Laser Therapy was a godsend. I suffered a severe case of Plantar Fasciitis in both feet to the point where I could barely function. After about 5 treatments I started noticing a change for the better and after 10 treatments I was able to resume my daily walks without pain and discomfort. It was also recommended that I wear proper orthotics to avoid future incidents. Diane (75) Wound “Thanks to laser treatment (6 treatments) and a course of vitamins, a very bad skin disorder over my legs and left hand cleared up. I had this problem for over 6 months. Thanks again.” Dan Scott (67) Low intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) is a highly sophisticated, non-toxic and non-invasive therapy that uses light energy from both superluminous and laser diodes. Cells use this energy to repair and regenerate themselves, enhancing the body’s natural healing process. Based on the genetic makeup of the cells, an individual’s response to LILT will vary to some degree.

Emotional testimony at trial

HUSBAND, BOYFRIEND OF WOMEN KILLED RECOUNT WHAT HAPPENED ON HIGHWAY

Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com As the trial for the man accused in the deaths of two women on the side of a Coquitlam highway continues, more details about the events leading up to the crash are starting to emerge. OnWednesday,PauloCalimbahin, the boyfriend of Lorraine Cruz, testified in court, recounting his version of events leading up to the deadly crash. The trial for Cory Sater began Monday in New Westminster Supreme Court. He is facing 10 charges related to the Feb. 19, 2011 crash that killed Cruz and Charlene Reaveley. Sater has pleaded not guilty to all 10 charges. Calimbahin told court he went out that Friday night with some friends to the DVC shooting range in Port Coquitlam. While at the range, he received a call from Cruz to return home sometime after 10 p.m. The pair had been living together in Coquitlam at the time. Calimbahin explained Cruz had just begun learning how to drive a month before and had her L licence. He noted she had just bought a 1990s Nissan Pathfinder a couple of weeks before the incident. He said that night she wanted to stay over at a friend’s place so she could practice her driving the next day. The 30-year-old told court the pair headed out to the Braid SkyTrain station to drop her off. Calimbahin testified that Cruz

Dan Reaveley, seen here in the office of the charity he opened recently, spoke in court about the night he lost his wife. was behind the wheel as the pair first went to a bank before the station. Travelling southbound down Lougheed Highway, he said their vehicle approached the Pitt River intersection as the advance warning lights went off near the intersection. He said he told Cruz to “watch for the lights,” but she didn’t respond. Calimbahin testified he grabbed the hand brake to slow the truck down, which caused the vehicle to start spinning out of control. The truck eventually hit a barrier and wound up facing oncoming traffic in the southbound lane of the highway. The initial crash happened shortly

after midnight. Calimbahin said following the crash, the driver’s side door didn’t open, noting that Cruz hopped into the back seat, while he moved to the driver’s side to get the door open. He told court he couldn’t remember much of what happened after they got out of the car. “I looked over to my right, I saw these two tiny headlights,” Calimbahin said. “I saw Charlene and Lorraine hugging.” He also told court he didn’t feel they were in any danger at the side of the road, adding several cars passed by after the initial crash. A few moments later he said he saw the hood of a white truck,

before being struck by the vehicle. “I remember lying on the concrete or road, face down,” he said, at times getting emotional recalling the incident. He said he called out for his girlfriend as soon as he gained consciousness and tried to look for her but couldn’t get up. Crown has alleged that a white Jeep Cherokee driven by Sater struck Reaveley, Cruz and Calimbahin and then took off. Calimbahin was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital where he was treated for serious injuries, including losing the lower portion of his left leg, a broken arm, broken eye sockets and fractured pelvis. He spent months in rehabilitation recovering from his injuries and hasn’t returned to work. But under cross examination, defense lawyer Tony Serka attempted to poke holes in Calimbahin’s testimony, suggesting he doesn’t remember many aspects of the event. The defense also repeatedly suggested it was Calimbahin behind the wheel of the Pathfinder and not Cruz at the time of the first collision. Calimbahin denied that he was driving at the time. Dan Reaveley, Charlene’s husband, also took the stand and recounted his version of the events that evening. He said he, Charlene and two friends had gone out for dinner and were on the way back from the Boulevard Casino when they stopped at the intersection of Lougheed and Pitt River.

Reaveley, who was a passenger in the friend’s truck, said he noticed Cruz’s Pathfinder swerving side-toside, before it crashed into a median. He said he and his friend ran over to assist the couple, while friend Kimberley Moore called 911. The recording of that 911 call was played in court Monday. In what appeared to contradict Calimbahin’s testimony, Reaveley said when he got to the truck, Calimbahin was in the driver’s seat with his seatbelt on, while Cruz was in the backseat. Reaveley and the friend helped pull the two out of the truck. Later on cross-examination, Reaveley testified it was clear to him Calimbahin was driving. He also testified that the pair seemed distraught following the crash, while Cruz was crying. By that time, Reaveley said he noticed Charlene was also by the Pathfinder comforting Cruz. In the meantime, Moore called over Reaveley to move their truck. He said he had just gotten into the truck, with his back partially turned away from the scene, when he heard a “big bang.” He said he yelled out to his wife and ran towards her. Reaveley said he held Charlene in the middle of the road. Both Charlene and Cruz were killed on impact. In all, Crown is expected to call 20 witnesses and take two weeks to present its case. The trial is scheduled to last a month. twitter.com/jertricitiesnow

Road rage incident Warning issued over ‘grandparent’ scam leads to tickets Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com It’s probably a good idea to take a deep breath behind the wheel. That’s at least what Port Moody police would like drivers to do after a road rage incident Tuesday. According to police, the incident began around 10 a.m. near St. Johns Street and Mary Street when one driver took exception to another driver’s speed as they headed westbound along the busy street. After yelling at the driver to slow down, a 39-year-old Port Moody resident threw a pen at the other person’s vehicle. That gesture only seemed to escalate the incident. Police said the driver of the second vehicle apparently changed lanes in front of the first vehicle, causing a minor crash. The driver of the second vehicle, a 21year-old man from Port Coquitlam, got out

and began yelling and banging on the other driver’s hood. The man inside the car got scared and left the scene, hitting the other driver. The younger man was knocked down and taken to hospital with minor injuries to his arm. Police caught up with the first driver, issuing a number of tickets including failure to remain at the scene of an accident, failure to render assistance and driving without due care. However, no criminal charges are being considered. “If you are upset about someone’s driving behaviour, please contact the local police nonemergency line,” Const. Luke van Winkel said in a statement. “The police can and will deal with these matters. “It’s not worth putting yourself in danger over a driving complaint.” twitter.com/jertricitiesnow

Tax on the agenda BUSINESS LOBBY EXPECTED TO ARGUE FOR TAX RELIEF AT COQUITLAM COUNCIL

John KURUCZ jkurucz@thenownews.com Coquitlam councillors and staff were likely to feel the ripple effects of the property tax tsunami Thursday. A group representing dozens of local businesses was expected to attend a budget meeting, after Tri-Cities NOW deadlines, to argue for both tax relief and equality for local businesses. That group is headed up by Mike Klassen, the director of provincial affairs for the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB). “Right now what we’re seeing is that businesses are paying a premium to be in the City of Coquitlam,” Klassen said. “They could go to a neighbouring municipality and run their business for cheaper. That’s not right.” A 2011 study by the CFIB suggested that Coquitlam businesses pay 4.69 times more in property taxes than residential owners. Those numbers rank Coquitlam’s disparity as the highest among B.C.’s larger cities. Countless business owners have contacted the Tri-Cities NOW in recent years over what they feel are exorbitant increases. Last year, one busi-

Mike Klassen ness owner saw her bill spike by 70 per cent in a one-year period. In 2011, a City Centre business owner saw nearly a 50-per-cent increase in his tax bill, a phenomenon he referred to as a “property tax tsunami.” According to Klassen, the problem boils down to the city’s expenditures — specifically the amount paid to city staff. “The thing that really boils our members’ blood is when they look at what city managers are making, which is in the cool six figures, and these same business owners are working for 14 hours a day, pretty much seven days a week,” he said. “They’re not pulling in anywhere near that money.”

Remuneration figures for 2012 point to two city staffers who earned more than $200,000 last year, while another 103 bureaucrats topped the $100,000 plateau. Ironically enough, the city won the B.C. Small Business Roundtable’s Open for Business Award at the recently held Union of B.C. Municipalities conference. The city has begun to ease the tax burden by instituting a yearly one-per-cent tax shift, but Klassen said tangible progress won’t be made until the city can sign a net zero deal with its workers. Just last month, the city ratified a new contract with unionized workers that will see their salaries increase by close to seven per cent over four years. “Right now, I think the only thing they can do is to make some commitments on the expenditure side — that’s about wages and benefits,” Klassen said. “If they keep on cutting deals that continue with the way that things have been, we’re not going to see the end of that.” Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart did not return calls prior to Tri-Cities NOW deadline.

fit in a Hot Wheels car. By day, Wayne Haydamack works for the City of Coquitlam. But in his spare time, the long-time resident has been busy working on a labour of love — a 43-foot replica of a cable bridge, which bears a striking resemblance to the Port Mann or Golden Ears bridges. Last week, he decided to lay the whole piece out on his driveway, while the weather was still nice. “It’s kind of a hobby,” he told the Tri-Cities NOW of his modelling career. Haydamack basically started working on the bridge in August. At first it was eight feet — then 16 feet — and finally 43 feet. At one point his entire kitchen was consumed by the bridge project. “When the weather is raining, you have to build it somewhere,” he joked. The attention to detail is astonishing and almost a young boy’s dream. The towers are made of plywood, while the side support beams are cut by a jigsaw. The bridge, which he named Super Bridge, has detailed signs, railings for pedestrians and on-ramps. And what bridge would be complete without cars, trucks and buses crossing the span? The bridge cost about $700 in parts to build. Haydamack, who got interested in the hobby through model trains, said he built the bridge to complement the model city he had constructed in his garage.

Haydamack explained it’s all part of a book he’s been working on that involves the model city. While the bridge certainly made some of his neighbours stop and take notice, they probably won’t see it

very often. Haydamack said he’s going to take the bridge apart and keep it in sections because it takes up so much space in his house. And unlike the provincial government that wants to build more bridges, that’s not in the deck for this hobbyist. “I’d like to get my life back to normal,” Haydamack said.

Police board needs members APPLICANTS MUST LIVE IN PORT MOODY

Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com Cops are always looking for a few good men and women to serve — and now the board that governs the Port Moody Police Department is looking too. The Port Moody Police Board has two vacant volunteer positions and is looking for applicants to fill those roles. The board is the governing body for the department, is responsible for the strategic priorities and direction of the department, and provides direction to the chief constable on operations.

The board is made up of a chair — the mayor — one member appointed by city council and five members appointed by the provincial government. The board is looking to replace the governmentappointed members. Mayor Mike Clay said it’s important to fill the two vacancies because the board has a lot of work to do. Specifically, he noted with just four members, it’s difficult to fill the board’s subcommittees. “Over the last few years we’ve lost some real skill sets on the board and we want to make sure we’re rounding out whose voice is being heard at the table,” Clay told the Tri-Cities NOW. Terms for board members last three years, but members can be reappointed for a maximum of six years. The mayor said the board

is looking for someone who has worked with youth or is familiar with youth justice, as well as a passionate business owner. He said he personally wants to see a board representative from the community with a diverse mix of people in ages and professions. What the board isn’t looking for is people who want to bring back things like photo radar or change how police train. Clay said most people who are interested would want to not only give back, but help shape the community. “Most people who are passionate about where they live would want to have their voice at that table,” he said, adding the board wants people interested in the governance of the department. Dave Whelan, a current board member, said he wasn’t exactly sure what to expect

when he joined, despite sitting on various city committees over the years. However, he likened being a board member to being on a board of directors for a public company. “The purpose is to provide policy, financial and strategic guidance to the department while maintaining an armslength perspective on operational issues,” he said in a statement, “a task which is difficult at times as there is a tendency to roll up your sleeves and jump in at times.” Prospective police board candidates must live in Port Moody, undergo a criminal records check, and commit up to 15 hours a month to fulfill board duties. Expressions of interest are being accepted up until Oct. 25. For more information, go to www.portmoodypolice.ca.

Whether by coincidence or design, the cost of being a TriCities MP got a little cheaper last year. According to MP expenditure reports released by the Board of Internal Economy, New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly spent $446,553 and Port MoodyWestwood-Port Coquitlam MP James Moore spent $418,284 in the 2012 fiscal year to do their work as MPs. The fiscal year runs from April 1, 2012 to March 31, 2013, while the report was

released this week. It breaks expenses into six categories, from travel and printing to advertising and employee salaries. Donnelly spent $217,675 on salaries, $86,499 on travel, $10,378 on accommodations and per diem expenses and $7,866 on hospitality and events. Around the office, the MP also spent $30,053 on office leases and utilities, $1,005 for furniture, $4,602 on telecommunication services and $1,967 for material and supplies. Moore was even more frugal. The long-time MP spent $164,960 on employee salar-

ies, $62,830 on travel, $7,820 on accommodations and per diem expenses and $8,797 on hospitality and events. In the office, he spent $39,397 on office leases and utilities, $145 on furniture and equipment, $8,505 in telecommunications services and $4,467 in materials and supplies. In the 2011 fiscal year, Donnelly spent a total of $462,105 while Moore spent $505,412. MPs across Canada came under fire in 2010 for at first refusing to let then-auditor general Sheila Fraser examine expenses, but relented

THE TRI-CITIES NOW

| FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2013

Tri-Cities NOW is a division of LMP Publication Limited Partnership. Our offices are located at 216-3190 St. Johns Street, Port Moody BC V3H 2C7 Phone: 604-444-3451

A frightening epidemic

I

t’s hard to fathom that anyone would leave a human being to die in a crosswalk, in the middle of the road or in a ditch, but we’ve seen examples of all three in recent weeks, as hit and runs that leave pedestrians dead or seriously injured seem to be on the rise. In PoCo on Sept. 10, Riverside Secondary student Annie Leung, 16, was killed in a crosswalk on Mary Hill Road. On Vancouver Island on Sept. 11, 24-year-old Molly Burton was left lying in a riverside marsh after being hit by a car. Fortunately, a good Samaritan heard her cries and found her, but she’s still in hospital and may lose her leg. A 16-year-old boy who left the scene is facing charges. In Surrey, a 35-year-old woman was left lying on the road with life-threatening injuries after a hit and run last Monday. A 49-year-old man has turned himself in to police. We could use this space to write about the need to focus on the road while driving, to be free of alcohol and distractions like cellphones — and to slow down. But we’ve all heard those warnings, and many choose to ignore them. We could look at whether there’s something in modern society that’s causing people to lose empathy for others, allowing them to hit a pedestrian then race off — not knowing whether the person will live or die. But that’s a question best left to researchers. All we can really do, then, is ask pedestrians to treat crossing the road — or even walking on or beside it — as a potentially dangerous activity that could be life-altering, and to assume drivers don’t see them, at least until they make eye contact and see the vehicle slow down. Hit-and-run crashes are the fault of drivers, not pedestrians, but we all have to do what we can to stay safe. There’s one more thing we can do, which shouldn’t be necessary but is: we can ask each driver to make a pledge to himself or herself that, if the unthinkable happens and they hit a pedestrian, they’ll do the right thing and stop — then do everything they can to help that person. Hopefully, you’re already driving safely and won’t have to worry about such a scenario.

NOWPOLL THIS WEEK’S QUESTION:

Why do you think hit and runs are so common? • I don’t know, but it’s scary • Drivers are more distracted than ever • Drinking and driving is a major problem • Drivers lack empathy • Drivers don’t want to face the consequences

couldn’t function in the real world where they’d be taunted, taken advantage of or abused. What community-based program could assure such security, serenity and beauty? In which facility could they keep you confined in a locked ward for your own safety until perhaps you learned more effective coping methods and behaviours to handle more independence? Nothing before Riverview had satisfied these basic human needs for me. Riverview hospital staff provided these needs professionally; they were instrumental in helping me to grow and build the confidence I needed to survive outside a mental hospital setting. But it wasn’t merely the rustic backdrop and safely confined premises that contributed to my flourishing state. I also highly impute my recovery to my copatients. Being in a place where others with similar illnesses can mingle and share stories without fear of being judged is, in my opinion, the ideal environment to nurture growth of the shattered spirit, until it’s ready to move on to greater challenges. Whether I was playing pool with someone at Penn Hall, enjoying a delicious serving of large fries with

Nothing in the community can offer this level of interaction with a population entirely of likeminded people.

As I eventually gained grounds privileges and began exploring the lush, green property, I began a gradual course of recovery. Within five months of being admitted, on my 21st birthday, I was discharged and transferred to a boarding home in Port Coquitlam. From then on, minus

several setbacks and many years of forming more efficient neural networks, I eventually proved my caregivers wrong, accomplishing what I wouldn’t have accomplished if Riverview hadn’t saved me first. Although my story is incomplete, today I have achieved a success very atypical of someone with such a burdening, hopeless diagnosis. I currently work a challenging but rewarding grocery store job 18 hours a week; I am studying with aspirations to become an astronomer; I live alone; and yes, I have found my soul mate. Although no simple solution solves a complex problem such as mental illness, I highly accredit Riverview Hospital for setting me along the course of recovery. As I’ve said before, without Riverview, I would surely be dead today. Who knows how many others will needlessly die or end up on our streets if Christy Clark fails to provide British Columbia with quality mental-health intervention and treatment facilities. Riverview fits the bill like no community residential care facility ever will. Peter Toth Port Coquitlam

Church to host ‘blessing of the animals’ John KURUCZ jkurucz@thenownews.com Goldfish, lizards and rats are more than welcome, and they don’t even have to be Catholics. Snakes, however, are another issue altogether. Coquitlam’s St. Clare of Assisi church will hold a “blessing of the animals” event this Sunday, Oct. 6, starting at 2 p.m. “Pets have become part of the family. It’s an opportunity for people to recognize their pets and have them blessed — whether it’s for God’s protection over them or thanking God for their pets,” said Rev. Craig Scott. “It’s about recognizing that animals are a part of our world, and a very important part of our world.” Scott said the annual afternoon of blessings has blossomed from 30 pets to more than 125 since the event’s inception at the church in 1999.

Rev. Craig Scott will lead a blessing of the animals ceremony on Sunday at St. Clare of Assisi Church in Coquitlam. The ceremony includes Scott singing and quoting Roman Catholic scripture before each pet is sprin-

kled with holy water. Depending on the number of animals, the entire exercise is done

within an hour. “We usually start off with a song, but after about the second note, the animals join in and take over,” Scott joked. “There’s barking, meowing, squawking and whatever other animal noises you can think of. It’s just mayhem.” Scott said he’s seen just about every pet over the 14 years he’s performed the blessings: parakeets, rodents and even hermit crabs. “It’s kind of weird when I get to the fish. Sprinkling holy water on fish … I don’t know. But I do it,” he said. Despite that air of animal inclusiveness, snakes aren’t allowed. It’s not because of the religious symbolism associated with Adam and Eve, but rather Craig’s own personal aversion to the reptiles. “I’m terrified of snakes. That is my personal paranoia. I tell people to take their snakes over to [Vancouver’s] St. Patrick’s Parish,” he said, laughing.

The timing of Sunday’s blessing is meant to coincide with the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, which Canadian churches typically celebrate on Oct. 4. St. Francis of Assisi is the Catholic church’s patron saint of animals and the environment. “It’s great. It’s a real community builder because these people gather around and talk and socialize … at least for as long as their pets allow them to,” Scott said. Sunday’s blessing ceremony is open to everyone, regardless of religious affiliation. Those attending are encouraged to bring pet food, blankets, towels or toys, which will be donated to a local animal shelter. Any cash donations will be welcomed as well. “The animals don’t have to be Catholics. This is absolutely open to anybody,” Scott said. St. Clare of Assisi church is located at 1320 Johnson St. in Coquitlam. For more information, call 604-9414800.

Film festival offers a tasty mix of choices

T

his year’s Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) is the first massive congregating of cinephiles that I have ever attended; I guarantee you it will not be my last. What an experience of being united with fellow passionate film lovers who go to the movies to (gasp!) watch the movies! One man described it as “the church of cinema.” The festival is a tasty cocktail blend in which one can choose to be intoxicated by award-winning Cannes premieres (Nebraska), showcases of great local and Canadian talent (Tom at the Farm) or even more mainstream genre films (All is Lost, Ain’t Them Bodies

CINEPHILIA

Joshua Cabrita Saints). Here are some notable entries featured at the first week of VIFF (Sept. 26 to Oct. 11). All is Lost (rating: 2/4) All has been lost indeed! The scenery is stunning; the realism is savage. But J.C. Chandor, the director of the vastly overpraised Margin Call, follows up that abysmal picture with yet another bore. This is the story of

a nameless man (Robert Redford) whose sailboat is damaged by a steel shipping container in the middle of the ocean. Why is this man sailing there and who is he? We will never know! Chandor’s film has 30 seconds of muddled and essentially useless characterization while the rest of his film is concerned with repetitive, uninteresting and snoreinducing survivalist action sequences. There’s no tension and no stakes. Ain’t Them Bodies

Saints (rating: 2.5/4) David Lowery’s second film is through and through an homage to Terrence Malick’s style of filmmaking (past and present). Ain’t Them Bodies Saints has the tone and esthetic of the master auteur down pat; now all it needs is his depth and profundity. The film’s feel and production design is artfully composed, but the storytelling and pacing seem to have been overlooked for the visuals’ searing beauty. The flaws arise as Lowery unwieldily fuses the plot from the narrative heavy 1970s Badlands (the story of two lovers who become on-the-run criminals) with the esthetic-rampant montages of Malick’s recent entries (The Tree of Life, To The Wonder) which are more

cinematic poems than plotdriven movies. As a result, we never come to know the characters; we only perceive glimpses of their humanity. On style alone Lowery still manages to make a painfully romantic look at doomed love. It just could have been a lot better; it could have been Terrence Malick.

Nebraska (rating: 3.5/4) Nebraska is simple filmmaking at its best. There is no manipulation of its audience with cheap camera tricks, overbearing music or even visual colour schemes. Instead, the actors are entrusted with mammoth ambitions — simply portray characters as if they were living out their daily lives on screen. Many will be put off by Payne’s choice to shoot

his film in black and white; I was enthralled. This stylistic preference demonstrates his profound understanding of Bob Nelson’s screenplay. Nebraska is more than just a reverently hilarious comedy about an old senile man who thinks he won a million dollars through a marketing scam; it is also a dark look into the effects of greed and the necessity of living an illusion when life has been utter chaos. Whether you like avantgarde experiments or mainstream genre films, this year’s festival cocktail has something for you — a fanatic or casual follower. The only rules are: shut off (your phone), shut up (your mouth) and shut in (your mind to the films).

SFU’s Centre for Dialogue is looking for Tri-Cities residents to take part in an invitation-only event called “Moving in Metro: A discussion on mobility pricing.” The term “mobility pricing” refers to the use of tolls and other charges to use, for example, roads and bridges. The event is invitation-only because, as a spokesperson for the centre explained, staff will accept applications from anyone interested, then choose participants based on demographics.

“Losing a child is never easy. But we are so grateful for the beautiful baby boy that we have,” says Travis Rose, here with son Sky, now 18 months, and wife Christine Chan. Photo: Tiffany Cooper.

Miracle on East Columbia Street rch champions to save the smallest of the small

Christine Chan, 37, of Coquitlam, was pregnant with identical twins when her water broke. Her husband Travis drove her to Royal Columbian Hospital (RCH) on February 7, 2012, where Christine was admitted and stabilised. “I was afraid and confused,” said the mother of five. “All my life I had wanted to have identical twins. This was a dream come true, babies number five and six, together.” The twins were at 23 weeks gestation and the high-risk maternity team at RCH wanted to prolong the pregnancy for as long as possible to give the twins their best chance at life. On February 29, Christine’s worst fears happened.

At 26 weeks, an unstable heartbeat from one of the twins precipitated an immediate caesarean section. Sadly, the twin they named Ocean (1,176 grams) was stillborn. The baby’s sac had prematurely broken, making him vulnerable to infection. Christine and Travis were devastated by the news. ”Even though my heart was broken I felt supported and cared for by the nurses. They encouraged me to stay strong for my four children at home who were waiting for me to take care of them. They reminded me that I had to be there for Sky, my tiny, new baby.” Sky (1,076 grams) was cared for in the RCH Variety Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for 137 days. He was supported by a nasal CPAP machine that assisted his breathing by puffing up his lungs. On his second day he had some lung collapse so required a High Frequency

Oscillator Ventilation, or breathing tube. “This provides tiny volumes of breath and is thought of as a gentler way of treating a baby,” explains RCH NeonatologistPediatrician Dr. John O’Toole. “This is a very difficult time for a parent. The little baby is attached to a lot of equipment. Christine was very anxious about her baby and we were all concerned about her. She had to grieve the loss of Ocean and look after her surviving child,” says O’Toole. On June 21, 2012, Sky went home to live with his one brother, three sisters and his overjoyed mother and father. “Losing a child is never easy. But we are so grateful for the beautiful baby boy that we have. The physicians and nurses at Royal Columbian helped us through a difficult time. Without them, we would not have been able to celebrate Sky’s homecoming,” says Travis. ■

How businesses can build healthy communities

good change to come at rch Each year we strive to do more, to do better, to ensure our hospital is equipped to meet the needs of patients. 2012 was one of our best fundraising years ever, culminating in the opening of the $5 million Multipurpose Interventional Suite in October. It was also our 150th birthday, made sweeter by government’s commitment to the redevelopment of our health care campus during the next few years. Our successes are made possible by the generous support we receive from donors and sponsors. At Thanksgiving, I am reminded to be grateful for my family and our good health, and I am touched by stories like that of the Rose-Chan family. In the midst of health challenges, their strength to love, laugh and raise five beautiful children is a reminder of why we give.

As a provincial hospital with advanced care specialties, we are here for everybody. RCH is family and we truly care. I thank you for caring too. Yours sincerely,

Adrienne Bakker President and CEO

Why I give anna-marie lyons, mother of h1n1 survivor alexandra kroetsch I give to RCH because they have given so much to me. Of course the fact that my daughter Alexandra survived a life-threatening illness is tantamount, but the way our family was treated by all staff was so considerate. RCH is at the forefront of trauma care and I’m proud to support them. I’m a financial planning consultant and believe that Canadians are generous donors but aren’t always strategic. Why not consider donating individual shares or mutual fund units that have appreciated? You’ll get the tax deduction for the full donation amount and you won’t be taxed on the capital gains. You can donate a lump sum and use it all in this tax year or spread the taxable benefit forward for up to five tax years. Consider talking to your accountant about donating securities now and in your estate to reduce final estate taxes. ■

The measure of a man dr. tom godwin leaves a legacy of cardiac care at rch Ask any RCH cardiac physician or staff member about Dr. Tom Godwin, and they will tell you what an undeniable leader and genuine human being he was. Never one to do anything half-hearted, Godwin always strived for the best for his department and his patients, and almost always, reached a successful conclusion. Described as “the founding father of cardiology at RCH,” he initiated the Cardiac Catheterization Lab, recruited a strong core of cardiologists and surgeons, and was instrumental in the development of the interventional cardiology and cardiac surgery programs at RCH. “His push to bring open-heart surgery to RCH was key in making it possible for our department to evolve into one of the most successful interventional cardiology services in Canada,” says Cardiologist Dr. Akbar Lalani. He would eventually turn the ups and downs of his nearly 50-year medical career and the wonderful life he shared with his wife, Elaine, and his four sons, into the pages of a book. In 2009, A Doctor’s Notes, Taken from Both Sides of the Bedsheets was published, with Godwin making a generous donation to the RCH Foundation to represent his book. Sadly, Dr. Godwin passed away in April 2013. He leaves behind not only a legacy that benefits cardiac patients from across BC today, but also the enduring gift of Dr. Godwin wrote of the experifamily and friendship. ences of his 50-year medical Says Cardiolocareer in A Doctor’s Notes. gist Dr. Dennis Rupka:

If bugs aren’t doing any harm, let them stay

“I moved to Vancouver about a year ago. In the spring I planted a vegetable garden. When I was pulling up the old lettuce stalks I noticed a large number of small beetles in the soil. I have also noticed them in my neighbour’s garden. Can you recommend something safe to get rid of them?” Sandy Turoldo via e-mail It’s unusual to see a large number of beetles congregating in the soil. But ants do. Is it possible these are ants? Ants sometimes nest in soil, especially sandy soil. You could disrupt them by giving the area a very good digging and moving some of the soil elsewhere. Or persuade them to move

by pouring very hot water into the nest. You do need extreme care to avoid spilling scalding water on your way to the action zone. Children and pets should be kept well away. I wonder if these beetles have a squared-off snout? If so, they may be weevils. Weevils can harm vegetables. They are very slow, nocturnal movers and can

easily be hand picked if trapped under moist sheets of newspaper and uncovered in daytime. The organic treatment for weevils is to order predatory nematodes in July from a garden centre. Nematodes are watered into the soil. Instructions come with the kit. But if these really are beetles it might be useful to ask yourself if these bugs are doing harm. Many soil insects are beneficial. Have you noticed damage on your lettuces that could be attributed to the beetles? If all they touched were the old lettuce stalks, perhaps they were just scavenging. Has your neighbour complained to you about the beetles dam-

aging anything in her/his garden? If there’s no evidence the beetles are doing damage, it’s a lot of extra work for little reward to try to eradicate them. Also, since they’re already in your neighbour’s yard anyway, these little beasties are likely to travel under the fence and re-occupy your soil.

“I have recently moved to Vancouver and started a little garden on my patio with herbs, lavender and miscellaneous flowers. Would you have some advice on what plants I could get that would look nice through winter?” Kristina via e-mail

Violas are available in garden centres right now. The flowers are like little pansies in beautiful pastel colours but don’t have any “face” patterns. Violas are more resilient to adverse conditions than pansies. Hardy cyclamen plants are also pretty during winter. Cyclamen hederifolium opens pink or white flowers in September, then produces large leaves with intricate patterns of silver and green that carpet the ground till early May when it goes dormant. Cyclamen coum is another dwarf hardy cyclamen with plainer leaves. The flowers it produces in January continue for about eight weeks. The winter-flowering hel-

New Homes Registry Keeps Homebuyers Informed This helpful, easy-to-use, online resource is available from the Homeowner Protection Office (HPO) website at www.hpo.bc.ca. Savvy homebuyers are using it to make more informed purchasing decisions. The New Homes Registry provides free access to find out if a home has a policy of home warranty insurance and is built by a Licensed Residential Builder, or whether it’s built without home warranty insurance. Homebuyers can obtain valuable information such as the name and contact number of the warranty provider, the builder’s warranty number and whether an ownerbuilt home can be legally offered for sale. Every new home built for sale by a Licensed Residential Builder in British Columbia is protected by mandatory third-party home warranty insurance. Better known as 2-5-10 home warranty insurance, this coverage includes: two years on labour and materials, five years on the building envelope (including water penetration), and 10 years on the structure. It’s the strongest system of construction defect insurance in Canada. For free access to the New Homes Registry visit the Homebuyers section of the HPO website.

lebore (Hellebore foetidus) has glossy dark evergreen leaves and does very well in containers (so do violas and dwarf cyclamen). This hellebore forms clusters of large, green grape-like buds in December that open into clusters of cup-shaped, green and red-rimmed flowers in January. Hellebore orientalis flowers about a month later, but has larger, more colourful blooms. It’s been much-hybridized and blooms range through white, pink, purple-red and black with embellishments ranging from dots, picottee and doubles to nodding and upright types. If your patio garden is partly in-ground, you might enjoy the winter jasmine (Jasminium nudiflorum), which flowers from November to February. Flowers are small, yellow, non-fragrant and carried in loose clusters. The stems are bright green. Winter jasmine accepts most soils and is very hardy, but it does need considerable pruning after flowering because it wants to grow big and sprawling. It is beautiful in winter for several months. Winter heather (Erica carnea) is well suited to containers. It’s fairly dwarf and in a container might look good around a tall, narrow juniper. The heather flowers for ages in various pinks and whites. Heather and juniper need well-drained soil. Both are quite drought-resistant. Some beautiful dwarf conifers with yellow, blue or variegated foliage are available. Conifers are always nice but always the same, and people who prefer variety through the seasons don’t get it with conifers. But conifers don’t need a lot of upkeep either. It’s useful before buying to ask about their growth rate, eventual height and spread. I wonder what herbs you have aside from lavender. There are some beautiful blue-green-silver leaf culinary sages such as Berggarten. Parsley is also lovely in a pot and stands through all but the worst weather. In Vancouver winters, rain is usually more of a hazard than hard freezes. Plants can wet out and rot rather than die of cold. This winter, you could get more plant ideas by wandering around a garden centre. January is an especially good time to get a good idea of what else you could expect to flower in your own situation and what kinds of flowers you like best.

Clutter can keep you from really living

A

close and beloved relative of mine is a collector. He has difficulty throwing things away and, to a lesser extent, makes it difficult for others to throw their own things away. Family members have considered an intervention — perhaps having a big commercial garbage container delivered to his home. I opposed this; he would welcome it as a present but be disappointed to find it empty. What constitutes junk — like the definition of beauty — is subject to our values and preferences. Within my first few years of marriage, I learned that one man’s treasure … is junk to his wife. I don’t like to keep secrets from my wife but I’ve learned to hide my treasures. Every one of us has clutter in our lives. To paraphrase Jesus, let he who is free of clutter throw the first scrap of paper. The Buddha taught us that the source of our suffering is our attachments. This applies to our craving for material things, our appetites, our obsessions, our addictions, our egos and, of course, our e-mail. In everyday life, clutter can get in the way. Literally, it can block a straight path across your living room. With eyes wide open, take a walk through the rooms of your home … with the lights on (I don’t want anyone to trip and fall). You don’t have to channel Jesus or the Buddha. Ask, “What would a firefighter say?” We don’t have to have OCD to be affected by a messy room. Clutter can increase our anxiety. If bills, personal letters, flyers and papers are scattered or piled haphaz-

HEALTH WISE

Dr. Davidicus Wong ardly in the kitchen, how can we maintain some order and peace in our lives? There may always be a feeling that something was missed like a bill unpaid, and it often is. Taking the time to sort through the mail, find a proper place for everything and keep a clear desktop can induce a calming effect. In cleaning a den, office or kitchen counter, we will inevitably find many things to recycle or throw out. In our run through daily life, we often throw things aside for later use, but ultimately discover we can’t find them or never needed them. The clutter can be in our heads. If we keep in the back of our minds a long list of things to do, we may feel stressed and disorganized. When we write down our tasks, we can prioritize, schedule and delete many of them. Putting things down on paper can make them more manageable. This strategy is far less stressful than leaving things undone beyond their expiry date. Though someone else might do the things we’ve procrastinated (my kids use this approach with the dishes), it is more likely we will have to pay late fees, interest or other penalties. It may be even worse if we’re procrastinating crucial conversations such as the birds and the bees talk with our children. Clutter can be the noise that prevents you from hearing your calling — distrac-

Is your cider pasteurized? The BC Centre for Disease Control is reminding people to make sure apple juice and cider are pasteurized before consuming this annual autumn favourite. Unpasteurized apple juice and cider, commonly available at local farmers markets, can become infected with harmful bacteria like E. coli and salmonella, according to a press release. The vast majority of juice sold in B.C. is safe, but only pasteurization can ensure that apple juice and cider are free of harmful pathogens. To avoid infection by foodborne bacteria, retailers and consumers should check with the producer or vendor before purchasing apple juice or cider and determine if it has been pasteurized. If the label does not provide this information, consumers can ask their retailer or producer, or phone the manufacturer listed on the label. When in doubt, consumers should take precautions and consider the risks before consumption.

tions that steer you away from your most important goals. Those distractions include channel and web surfing, mindless conversation and gossip, Facebook updates and text messages, and other activities that consume your time, attention and energy without adding value to your life.

Technology a boon for astronomers Sam SMITH editorial@thenownews.com

Expires Oct 31, 2013.

It could be the start of something great: more telescopes, more discoveries and more potential for finding alien life. PoCo’s Dynamic Structures announced a “game-changing” technology on Sept. 27 it says could lead to more affordable telescopes worldwide, and thus more discoveries. “Astronomers seem to need to want to search further back in time and further out, and with clarity,” said Guy Nelson, CEO of Empire Industries, parent company of Dynamic Structures. “Of course, we in the field of business like to produce the machines that allow that to happen.” It all comes down to a new mirror polishing technique and technology that can apply it. Conventionally, telescope mirrors are polished using a tool that applies vertical force to the mirror’s surface. However, the process is non-deterministic (it cleans over everything, even if it’s not needed) and time consuming, Dynamic Structures said. The mirror also has to be stiff to be properly polished, and to achieve this the thickness of the mirror is increased. Dynamic Structures has developed a new cleaning technology called “Hydra” which cleans the mirror using radial force, effectively eliminating the need to put top-down pressure on the mirrors. Utilizing sophisticated robots and the new Hydra system, Dynamic Structures believes it can mass produce light-weight mirrors able to see millions, even billions of light years away.

SCAN WITH LAYAR TO SAVE ON YOUR EVERYDAY PURCHASES

If a mirror doesn’t need to be as thick, that makes it a lot less costly, says Craig Breckenridge, senior designer at Dynamic Structures and Innovative Optics. “The fact is we need to change mirror technology in order to make larger telescopes,” he said. Breckenridge says this technology exists nowhere else on the planet, and could lead to more universities and companies buying telescopes as they will be more affordable. Beyond the cost savings, Breckenridge pointed to the potential of future observatories utilizing lighter mirrors. Traditionally, observatory telescopes are very heavy, sometimes weighing up to 300 tons. The new technology cuts that down to 1/10 the weight. Using lighter mirrors, Dynamic Structures can make larger telescopes more efficiently, with the end goal being the “Colossus telescope.” It’s described as having a primary mirror nearly 77 metres wide, with mind-boggling potential. “This instrument would be able to resolve the infrared radiation that results from technologically advanced civilizations living on exoplanets within 60 light years for Earth,” the company states. “Next-generation very large optical telescopes will depend on scientists and engineers finding new primary mirror solutions that focus on technical performance and reliability, coupled to reduce costs and time effectiveness.” The international demand for large telescopes and amusement rides (which the company also creates), has doubled its workforce.

Upper Bench Winery a winner for quality

S

ometimes you have a craving for a good glass of wine and a selection of fine cheeses on a patio on a beautiful summer day. It should be an easy fix if you’re in the middle of Okanagan wine country on the Naramata bench. Sadly, however, I transversed the bench last month searching for such a combo, and at

At the last stop we made we came up with the jackpot. It was at Upper Bench Winery where I met with winemaker Gavin Miller and cheesemaker Shana Miller. The main building is divided between the cheese making facilities and the winery itself. A fabulous and very tasty cheese platter arrived as I sat down with Gavin. Gavin explained that as winemaker for Painted Rock for four years he was searching for a winery to call his own. A former winery, Stone Hill, was in receivership and Gavin and partners were lucky in outbidding everyone for the new winery they renamed Upper Bench. Gavin inherited an unusual combination of nine different varietals on seven acres. The perfect scenario for blended wines you may conclude, however Gavin had other ideas which included utilizing minimalistic winemaking techniques to craft premium, single varietal wines. Gavin crops his yields very low and his team of dedi-

cated vineyard workers takes great care in the vineyard, which provides outstanding fruit for these premium selections. As I discussed technical wine geek stuff with Gavin, I jotted down some tasting notes as we tasted through the flight. The 2012 Chardonnay is an example of the modern style of Chardonnay favoured by most wine drinkers. Tropical and stone fruit flavours are deftly balanced by aging in stainless and French oak. This aging technique results in subtle butter and vanilla hints and a creamy mouth feel. A touch of citrus fruit balances out this wine nicely; even a non Chardonnay drinker would love this wine. The next selection was the 2012 Riesling. On the nose were peach, pear, slightly floral and emerging hints of diesel, an indication of the high quality Riesling can deliver. A slightly off dry version, this is one of the best Rieslings I’ve tried this year in the Okanagan. A really nice surprise was the 2012 Rose. Crafted from Zweigelt grapes, this drier Rose had some flavourful components of cherry, currant, cranberry, melon and apricot. A perfect cross

between a white and red wine, you could match this with seafood, poultry and pork dishes. Only 181 cases of the stellar 2011 Pinot Noir wine were made and it sold out quickly. Why am I reviewing a sold-out wine? If the next vintage is anywhere near as good as this I want you to go out and buy it before it’s sold out again. Currant, sour cherry and aromatic chocolate, spice and forest floor are evident. On the palate, generous fruit and perfect tannin to acid balance make this a pleasure to drink. The showstopper, however, was the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon. A classic Cabernet Sauvignon with cassis, mint, cherry, cedar and cocoa bean flavours combined with a full-bodied texture and firm but yielding tannins on the finish. This is a wine to drink now or lay down for a few years; you will not be disappointed. This

level of quality in B.C. wines typically sells for upwards of $80, but this one is a bargain at $35. This is a small winery with a very restricted production, so you will be fortunate to find it on the shelves of your local private wine store. If you can’t locate it in your area you can order directly from the winery (www. upperbench.ca). Better yet, treat yourself and head up to the Okanagan and stop by Upper Bench to enjoy a glass of wine and selection of their fabulous cheese at the winery. I guarantee you will savour the moment.

SPORTS SHORTS WOLVES UNLEASHED

Perseverence paid off in spades for the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Wolves on Friday. The Vancouver Metro premier soccer team found its scoring touch and ceremoniously spanked heavily favoured ICST Pegasus 4-1 in Surrey. With just one goal over its first three games, Coquitlam was due, according to head coach Les Krivak. “It was a great win, we fully deserved it,” said Krivak. “We were the better team, we were better organized. I think they underestimated us a little, but mostly we played great.” Coquitlam got the game going in the ninth minute when Carson Gill headed home a well-placed free kick by Adam Jones. While ICST netted the equalizer a few minutes later, the Wolves replicated its first run and retook the lead about 10 minutes later when Kia Mirzahossein, Alfredo Valente and Jones teamed up to feed Domenic Delli Santi, who buried it into the bottom corner. Jones and Luigi Pantusa completed the scoring for Coquitlam. Although the Surrey squad stepped up its game in the second half, Metro-Ford’s Dillan Fogliato was full marks for the win, turning back a free kick. “We could have had three or four more goals but missed by inches,” said Krivak. “It was very good effort, but the guys have played very well in every game.” Coquitlam will take on West Van FC on Saturday, 3 p.m. at Dr. Charles Best.

PANTHERS POUNCED The Port Moody Panthers are still stalking their second win of the junior B hockey season. The Panthers came up short in a rally last Saturday, falling 4-2 to the Grandview Steelers. The visiting Steelers jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first period, with PoCo native Tim Chow opening the scoring. Trailing 40 just a few minutes into the middle frame, Port Moody finally got on the scoresheet when Taylor Leger beat Grandview goalie Adam Cronier. In the third, Wolfgang Schoenefuhs made it 4-2, but the Panthers couldn’t bridge the gap. Brendin Logan collected two assists in the loss. Port Moody was outshot 45-25, but a strong performance from netminder Alex Orth kept the hometown Panthers in the game. The Panthers host Ridge Meadows on Saturday, 7:45 p.m. at the Port Moody Arena.

T-BIRD NETS HONOUR Port Moody’s Navid Mashinchi registered two goals and two assists while leading his Canadian Interuniversity Sports’ No. 2-ranked UBC Thunderbirds to twin wins on the weekend. It earned the midfielder Canada West first-star honours. Mashinchi, a fourth-year commerce student athlete, potted both goals in the T-birds 3-2 victory over Saskatchewan — including the game-winner in the 88th minute. A day later he added two assists in a 4-0 decision over Alberta. With four goals and six assists over eight games, Mashinchi is the leading scorer in the Canada West conference.

OREGON STATE ATHETICS

Port Coquitlam’s Anica Yoo became the first Oregon State women’s golfer to win a tournament title in more than 16 years when she topped the Rose City Collegiate tournament this week.

Yoo shines on Oregon greens Dan OLSON

sports@thenownews.com Anica Yoo would rather be golfing. The Port Coquitlam athlete will spend the next few weeks catching up on her school work, hitting the practice range and taking time to celebrate her 20th birthday — which comes next week. Yoo became the school’s first women’s golfer to win a tourney title outright since 1997, leading her squad to the tourney title at the Rose City Collegiate in Aurora, Ore. on Monday. Coming after last week’s major win, the Oregon State Beavers golfer could be excused for wanting to jump right into the next tournament swinging. “To be honest, I was telling my teammates how badly I wanted to win and how it still hasn’t really sunk in,” Yoo told the Tri-Cities NOW. “I’ve been doing homework, doing interviews — it’s all a blur.” Such is life of a campus star. A junior at the Corvallis campus, Yoo has been a contributor to the Beavers’ golfing results since joining them three years ago. She hasn’t missed a tournament, not even as a 17-year-old rookie right out of Terry Fox Secondary.

Her performance over the two-day, rainshortened Rose City event was somewhat rollercoasterish, she noted. A red-hot opening round saw Yoo lead the pack with a three-under 69 and entered the final 18 holes Monday with a good start — posting a par and back-to-back birdies. It was followed by a bogey, and a few holes later, a double-bogey on a par three. “It helped to talk to my coach (Rise Alexander), she kind of followed me after that,” said Yoo. “I was nervous and told her how badly I wanted to win. My hands were shaking — it was more excitement than anything else, but she helped get me back on track.” The former B.C. junior champion finished the final round with a 73 and two-under over 36 holes. Along with some solid performances from her teammates, it clinched the 15-team event for Oregon State — the Beavers’ first tourney title in four years. “My confidence level came back up with (coach Alexander’s) help. I think the last five holes really helped me — on the 13th (hole) I hit water and when I made that shot I wanted to just run in the water. “(Alexander) really helped me, because the

next hole I birdied and I think that got my confidence back up.” Her polished first round at the 6,080-yard Langdon Farms Golf Club seemed a carry-over from her finish in New Mexico two weeks earlier. After starting that tourney with a disappointing 79 on the first day, Yoo posted a two-under 70 and recorded five straight birdies en route to finishing 18th. She launched the Rose City tournament in a positive frame of mind, with the results showing on the board. “That first round (in Aurora), it was wet and cold but I enjoyed it a lot,” she said. “I was playing with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while and it was just like a good time — we got to catch up on what we were each doing, it was like we weren’t even thinking about golf.” That success caught up to her on Monday, but provided an important taste of pressure that she feels confident will be an important bridge going forward. “I heard how our team hadn’t won (a tournament) in over six years, and we really wanted it. That was a lot of pressure.” For the next few weeks, school and the candles on her birthday cake will suffice.

Skaters ready for Estonia experience Dan OLSON

sports@thenownews.com They have their visas ready to flash and their routines set to dazzle. Local figure skaters Larkyn Austman and Brianna Delmaestro will jet to one of the oldest capital cities in northern Europe on Monday with similar goals — to soak in the experience. But they both go there with the intent to shine for Canada. The teens were selected to compete at the final Junior Grand Prix of 2013 next week in Tallinn, Estonia. For Austman, the junior national champion will be making her international Grand Prix debut — and aims to build on her earlier successes.

“It was kind of nerve wracking waiting [to hear],” said the 15year-old Coquitlam native. “They waited until the last moment to make the announcement, but I’m so happy to be going.” Delmaestro joins ice dancing partner Timothy Lum at their second Grand Prix event in a handful of weeks. In mid-September the duo represented Canada in Poland and finished fifth. “That was my first time in Europe and it was a real good experience,” remarked Delmaestro, 17. “There was a lot to absorb, but one of the first things I remember was the rink was really, really cold.” Lining up against a slate of foreign competition, Delmaestro and Austman both are keeping expectations basic. The experience itself

is a reward, while the competition will be a beneficial challenge, noted the Port Moody skater. “We just want to do our best,” said Delmaestro. That her and Lum have risen so quickly — after teaming up for the first time in competition in July — has surprised a number of people. The two have proven to be a good fit. “No one really knew what to expect, but we just tried our best to get as good as we could together,” said Delmaestro, a member of the Coquitlam Skating Club who trains under the tutelage of Aaron Lowe and Megan Wing at Burnaby’s Centre of Excellence. Austman noted although she isn’t completely recovered from an Achilles injury that stymied her

during the summer skating sessions, her back is feeling better and she eagerly anticipates the cues to her short program on Thursday. “I’m sure I’ll be nervous but I usually am nervous before the start of a competition, so that shouldn’t be any different,” the Dr. Charles Best student said. “It doesn’t deter me.” Austman, who trains at Richmond’s Connaught Skating Club, said all her success as a junior rookie have given her a good foundation of what to expect. “I didn’t expect much as a firstyear junior so I was shocked to win my first event (the Skate Canada Challenge last December)… I don’t anticipate winning the (Grand Prix) but I’m going to make it a great experience.”

Heritage Woods Kodiak Eric Dove powers the ball past Terry Fox goalkeeper Aidan Bain during their AAA senior boys high school soccer game on Tuesday.

Kodiaks shut down Fox Dan OLSON

sports@thenownews.com A goal against the flow of play buoyed the Heritage Woods Kodiaks past the Terry Fox Ravens 2-0 in senior boys soccer action. While Fox, who finished second at last year’s B.C.s, dominated the first half, the Kodiaks grabbed a 1-0 lead on Eric Dove’s first of two. That lead was backstopped by a strong performance from netminder Cole Nielsen. Dove would deposit the insurance tally midway through the second half. The Ravens, who began the season by winning the Guildford Park tournament, levelled plenty of veteran fire against the Port Moodybased Kodiaks, but came up empty. In other action, the Centennial Centaurs rebounded from a harsh 4-0 setback to Fox with a dramatic 2-1 win over Riverside Rapids. Abhinav Bahatta’s late tally — just seconds

before the end of injury time — gave the Coquitlam crew the victory. Centennial took a 1-0 lead when Kasra Rayani converted a free kick despite the team having lost a player to a red card. With 15 minutes left, the club would be reduced to nine players after another red card was handed out.

But right off the draw, the Cents moved the ball down field, got a throw in and won it on Bahatta’s marker, beating Riverside keeper Nick Valois — who both coaches credited for having an outstanding game in net. Also playing well was Centennial’s Matteo Gallaccio and Riverside’s Brendan Hodaly.

SPORTSN0W FOOTBALLSPORTS

Wildcats clip Hyacks There’s no place like home — just ask the Coquitlam Wildcats. The peewee minor football team returned to Mackin Park’s Kevin Chin field and promptly posted a dominating 31-0 victory over the visiting New Westminster Hyacks. Despite playing in another torrential downpour, Coquitlam did an excellent job of protecting the ball, with stalwart contributions from linemen Ryan Dougall and Aaron Tung. Providing ample support were Sebastian Bernat, Bronson DePaoli, Jason Kyle and Zack Ryan Thomas. Chalking up touchdowns were KeyShaun Dorsey, Isaiah John, Nathan Massey and Ethan Shuen, while quarterback Josh Baba did a tremendous job of distributing the ball. • Trailing 6-1 at the half, the Coquitlam Chargers forced the Cloverdale Leopards to change its spots in a 28-13 comeback victory in bantam football action. Quarterback Lucas Gill put the rally in motion, scoring three touchdowns. Liam Stewart iced it and silenced any Cloverdale rally with a fourth quarter major. Running backs Dade Motts and Matt Shuen enjoyed strong games, while the defence was led by Darrel Gelera, Bowen Goldade and Dayal Hayre, who racked up a number of clutch tackles each.

Rahmani records pair in United win

Compiled by Dan OLSON sports@thenownews.com Arash Rahmani scored twice and set up another to lead the North Coquitlam United under-18 boys past Coquitlam Metro-Ford last week in Division 1 soccer action. North Coquitlam took a 3-0 lead when Rahmani tallied twice and Andre Lima notched a single. While Metro-Ford scored midway through the second half, Abtin Kaveh added a key insurance goal to put a chill in Coquitlam’s comeback hopes. Turning in strong efforts at midfield were Diego Govantes, Tristan Humphries and Kieran Luckhart, while Ethan Quisias and Adam Qumiakas provided steady support on defence.

COQUITLAM Proving true to his name, Trevor Good made good on two scoring chances to spark the Coquitlam Metro-Ford u-17 boys Crusaders past Langley 2-1 in Div 3A play. Drawing assists on both of Good’s tallies was Aidan Ames. The Crusaders also received outstanding performances from Ryan Fielding, Colin Gill and Brody Summerskill, whle netminder Zac Webster stood his ground in giving up just one goal. • Improving to 3-0 on the early season, the Coquitlam u-10 Juventus edged a PoCo u-11 team 4-3. There was no shortage of shots from Juventus, as midfielder Roman Bandiera hit the crossbar on a couple of occasions. Noah Bayonne delivered a pair of markers, with solo goals by Leon Carney and Lieto Hutchinson. Anchoring the backline work were Max Kenward and Adam Kirby. • It came down to just one goal and a huge standoff, but the Coquitlam Metro-Ford u-17 girls Black Ice extended their winning streak with a 1-0

decision over Surrey. Abby Forsyth cashed in a penalty kick, which she fired over the defenders from the 25-yard line to give Coquitlam the lead. While Surrey pressed for the equalizer on a couple of occasions, goalkeeper Isabella BlameyParsi was rock-steady between the posts in securing the clean sheet. The Black Ice’s defensive unit, which features Rhiannon Carreira, Mattea McRae, Cassie Shewchuk, Erin Wright, Sydney Yap, Forsyth and Blamey-Parsi, have yet to allow a goal over four games. • Four and growing. The Coquitlam Metro-Ford u-12 Renegades racked up a fourth straight win — a 2-1 decision over West Coast last week. With plenty of action at both ends of the pitch, Coquitlam opened the scoring off Jessica Towner’s shot, assisted by Sierra Santorelli. While West Coast tied it in the second half, the Renegades got a late tally from Christa Tascona to pull ahead. Helping limit the opposition to a handful of serious chances were defenders Claudia Carbone, Keely Lind-Peterson, Laura Marshall and Milena Wilson. • The action was end to end, with a late rally by the Coquitlam u-15 gold tNt falling just short in a 2-1 loss to Port Coquitlam. After falling behind 1-0 early in the first, Coquitlam pushed back and nearly tied it on Natasha Calis’ effort. Hayley Morrin put them on the board with five minutes left. Strong checking from Cristina Danieli and Olivia Kuninaka held the score close, while defenders Isabel Antunes, Nicole Chursinoff and Olivia Dawson played well.

PORT MOODY Trailing at the half, the Port Moody u-16 boys RedCaps unleashed a determined effort Saturday en route to a 3-1 victory over Central City.

A lacklustre opening half put Port Moody behind the eight-ball, but they bounced back quickly when Declan White counted the equalizer off a long shot that fooled the goalkeeper. They continued the attack and would forge ahead on Kyle Winslow’s header off a perfectly executed corner kick. Nick On would complete the scoring. Earning man-of-the-match honours was defender Tony Blazevic, with able support from Brad Gregory, Justin Richter and Connor Wong. • With a lineup depleted by injuries, the u-17 girls Quicksilver continue to push for a better result only to fall 4-1 to Langley. Minus a number of starters, including their goalkeeper, Port Moody didn’t look the part of a pushover, applying plenty of pressure over the second half. Striker Kiera Thompson made numerous forays into the offensive zone only to be thwarted, while Vanessa Giles and Lori Jiang were forces along the left flank, drawing a penalty kick that Vanessa Velo converted. Returning after nearly a year absence was player-of-the-match Julia Palmer, while Sydney LeGoff did a solid job in net filling in for the injured Ellie Langr. Also playing well were Jenna Jessa and Natasha Lumagbas. • Displaying strong soccer skills and ball movement, the Port Moody u16 ’98 Selects added to their winning streak with a standout effort against Chilliwack. Holly Chwaklinski drew three assists, including a pair off Asha Macdonald’s twin tallies, in a convincing 5-0 triumph. Camryn Doughty’s early tally stood up as the winner, finishing off a beautiful setup from Chwaklinski. Macdonald would collect her goals in the span of two minutes. Rounding out the offence were Allie Mercer and Hayley Reeves. Earning the game MVP honours was fullback Tara Sawkins.
