THE 2014 ANNUAL

JUNE 28, 29, 30 & JULY 1 AT ROCKY POINT PARK IN PORT MOODY

LUCY FINALLY CAPTURED AFTER 9 MONTHS ON THE RUN

Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com For nearly a month, Peter Barringgon and his wife Hoshiko patiently played the waiting game. Every morning in the dark, they would take turns laying out food to entice the black border collie roaming around their Coquitlam neighbourhood of Cottonwood. Her name was Lucy, and she had been on the lam since August after running away from her foster family at Gates Park in PoCo. The young dog, which wasn’t much older than

a pup at the time, was initially rescued from a hoarding situation in the U.S. and brought to the Tri-Cities for care. Lucy had never been socialized with humans and was completely mistrustful of people. She ended up slipping out of her harness and into the wilds. She was spotted all over the area, from PoCo to Burnaby and Coquitlam, and was on the run from humans. But being animal lovers and a dog owner themselves, Peter and Hoshiko weren’t about to give up CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

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.

Coquitlam SAR team stages demo Jeremy DEUTSCH

jdeutsch@thenownews.com Within just a few minutes of takeoff, Coquitlam Search and Rescue member Wendi Harder, armed with a stretcher while attached to a rope and helicopter, plunges a couple of hundred feet into the deep green forest. Out of sight for a short time, she and another rescuer emerge with the patient, safely landing on a green space in Eagle Mountain Park in Coquitlam. In all, the rescue took about 20 minutes. Fortunately, the rescue wasn’t real. Instead it was a demonstration organized by the local SAR team to show off a new skill and resource to save people injured or lost in the backcountry. Last month, the search team got the all-clear to start performing long-line rescues after its HETS (Helicopter External Transport System)

On Sunday, the team invited the public and local dignitaries to check out the new system up close. “I think, in a nutshell, it will

save lives,” Ian MacDonald, a search manager with Coquitlam SAR, told the TriCities NOW. And as it was explained, the system is deceptively

simple. A synthetic line or rope, up to 76 metres (250 feet) long, is attached around a helicopter through various hooks. The helicopter’s doors remain open throughout the flight. The line is approved to carry up to 600 pounds, but can actually handle much more weight. MacDonald noted the new rescue capability will also reduce the response time to get to injured people and act as a safety tool for searchers in the field. He pointed out that in the past, carrying patients out manually would take hours and use more resources. With the HETS system, just two team members are required for a mission. There are a total of nine SAR team members trained to perform long-line rescues. So far this season, the kit hasn’t been called into action. The team began working

on getting long-line equipped back in 2011 after receiving a Spirit of Coquitlam grant for $45,000 and training 13 members. But the team’s HETS was shelved in the fall of 2012 after the equipment was decertified by Transport Canada. The search team then had to rely on using a kit owned by North Shore Rescue. MacDonald said with the ability to do long-line rescues, Coquitlam’s team is on par with the North Shore team. And he expects other search teams around the Lower Mainland will be calling the local SAR team for help when the system is needed. Coquitlam Coun. Craig Hodge said the new system will give the team a chance to respond quickly to a situation in its own backyard. He suggested with more people moving into Coquitlam and taking advantage of the mountain terrain, the team will be called more frequently

for rescues. “Having this equipment available to us, and our volunteers trained to this level, is very reassuring to me as a city councillor and a resident,” Hodge said. Coquitlam-BurkeMountain MLA Doug Horne said the new system will enhance the team’s rescue capability, adding it’s important given the difficult terrain in the backcountry. While the equipment is certified for a number of years, training needs to reoccur every year. It’s an expensive venture for the team, as helicopterflying time can cost more than $2,000 an hour. The team gets some funding through the city, through provincial gaming grants and by fundraising. Both Hodge and Horne said it’s important the team has the equipment and training to carry out rescues in the future. twitter.com/jertricitiesnow

The couple, along with the pet detectives, hatched a plan to catch the elusive Lucy. The Barringgons tied a rope to their gate several times a night, putting out Scooby snacks for the dog. They repeated the ritual for days, all while taking turns keeping a close eye to make sure no other critters stole the food. Finally, after several weeks, on Friday night Lucy trusted the food source enough to come all the way into the yard. They shut the gate and caught the scared dog in a net. Peter said Lucy struggled and then froze at first in the arms of her captor, but within a few minutes she was eating cheese out of the hand of Alesha MacLellan, with

In all, Lucy had been on her own and wandering the streets for 299 days before last weekend. Petsearchers received hundreds of calls from residents across the TriCities during the 10 months she was on the run. MacLellan figures the border collie had learned survival skills during her time in the U.S. and could stand

up for herself against other wild animals, including the coyotes she was seen with at times. Lucy is now in the care of Petsearchers until she can be brought out of her shell and adopted to a new home. Peter and Hoshiko wish their backyard guest the best. “I think she’s going to make someone a nice pet once she gets over the trauma of being caught after so long,” Peter said.

Mayors end ‘town haul’ RV JOURNEY A LEARNING EXPERIENCE

Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com After driving thousands of kilometres across most of the country, the weary travellers, being the three mayors of the Tri-Cities, are back home. And the local leaders appear to have returned from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) conference May 30 in Niagara Falls with an RV full of ideas and memories to share with their respective communities. In all, the three mayors ended up visiting 19 cities during a week-long trip to FCM in a motor home, compiling interviews, video and pictures all while providing updates through social media along the way. “We went to a lot of really great little communities,” Port Moody Mike Clay said, offering his take on the trip. He said it was interesting to see how communities in Alberta and Saskatchewan benefit from the prosperity of resource companies by putting funding back into municipalities. Clay said as the B.C. government focuses on liquefied natural gas projects, a prosperity fund needs to be developed that will benefit cities. The Port Moody mayor said he also heard a lot of talk about partnerships from his counterparts in other cities — between different levels of government, businesses and neighbouring municipalities. He said that also led to a fair amount of discussion between the three Tri-Cities mayors on where they can partner and integrate services.

“We need to stop being territorial and having turf wars and start working together,” Clay said. Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore said he was focused on recreation centres and seeing best practices. He took a special interest in the rec centres in Kamloops and Canmore, Alta. Moore noted the centre in Kamloops is one of the few to turn a profit, while the Canmore facility has integrated a library, art gallery and rock-climbing wall. The PoCo mayor intends to share his findings with both city staff and council. While there were plenty of laughs and memorable moments along the way, like when Clay and Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart helped police in Kenora, Ont. catch some drugstore thieves, there were also sombre times of reflection. The trio spent a fair amount of time at the Terry Fox Monument near Thunder Bay, Ont. where Fox’s Marathon of Hope ended. “It’s probably one of the most moving moments I’ve had in my life,” Moore said, adding more than 30 years later, Fox’s dream lives on. The mayors also noted their journey was profiled at the closing and opening of the FCM, while 178,000 people viewed tweets from their @townhaulcanada account. “It provided great exposure to our three cities at the municipal and national level,” Moore said.

Tom Grant to retire

DISTRICT TO HIRE NEW SUPERINTENDENT

John KURUCZ jkurucz@thenownews.com School District 43 Supt. Tom Grant announced plans for retirement late last week, after close to four decades in the education system. Grant’s retirement will take effect on Dec. 31, and cap off

a 38-year career in the public education system. The district is expected to begin the process of looking for a new superintendent this fall. “After all these years, I think it’s time,” Grant said in an interview Monday. Last week’s announcement brings closure to a career

that began in Vancouver in the mid-1970s. Grant initially worked at six different schools in that municipality before serving for 11 years as the Vancouver School Board’s associate superintendent. This year is his seventh with School District 43. CONTINUED ON PAGE 11

Students plan rally John KURUCZ

jkurucz@thenownews.com Online reports suggested thousands of students would participate today in what could be the largest protest in ongoing labour strife between B.C. teachers and the province. The B.C. Student Walkout for Students started gathering momentum over the weekend on social media, and by Monday afternoon, the Facebook page organizing the protest had eclipsed 11,000 participants. According to online postings, students were being asked to protest all day today in front of their respective schools, beginning at 9 a.m. (after Tri-Cities NOW deadline). The two event organizers stressed that any planned protests be non-partisan, and support be shown for students only. “Both sides need to get their act together and reach an agreement,” event organizer Victoria Barker wrote online. “This has been going on far too long (13 years too long) and the students are the ones losing out, all because adults cannot get along.” Coquitlam Teachers’ Association president Charley King said while his members were aware of the planned protest, they were not taking a formal position. “We’re not getting involved in any of it, one

way or the other,” he said. “I think we would report absences as we would normally do to the principal or the office and they’ll follow up from there … that’s ultimately the school’s responsibility.” School board chair Melissa Hyndes noted the district has no precedent to fall back on in terms of a mass walkout. “I would definitely not advise any elementary or middle school student to join,” she said. “There are [supervision] problems there and, as a parent, I certainly wouldn’t feel comfortable with them taking part in any sort of rally for safety reasons.” As for any secondary students who plan to participate, Hyndes hopes their messaging is quick and to the point. “I’m hoping that whatever they plan is civil, respectful of the communities and that they make their point and then they disperse,” she said. It’s also unclear as to what, if any, discipline students will face should they take part in the day-long protest. “I do not believe that principals and administrators will be encouraging students to not come to school,” Hyndes said. “My feeling is, and from the board’s perspective, when school is in session, we expect our students to be in their classrooms.”

New developments in metabolic science has led to the unimaginable... weight-loss!

Scientists Predict End of Obesity by 2018

Within the Next 5-Years; Experts predict “weight loss clinics will be shuttered… diet doctors will be obsolete… and virtually no one in this country will ever be fat again!” Here’s why... By: Don Westein, Health Editor After years of painstaking research, scientists have announced a weight loss discovery so radical it could end America’s obesity epidemic by 2018. “This is a real gamechanger!" Says John P, a nutritionist from Phoenix, AZ. Some say, Garcinia Cambogia is going to put millions out of work. Referring to the countless jobs in the diet industry. But just think about the millions of lives that will be saved from sickness and disease that comes from being fat! Famous TV Heart Surgeon: This is the “Holy Grail for people with Weight problems!”

So exactly why is Garcinia Cambogia wowing the scientific community?

For one thing, it’s not another diet craze that’s in one day and out the other. It’s a remarkable substance derived from an amazing pumpkin shaped fruit grown in southeast Asia… But not just any variety of Garcinia will do. It has to be grown only in specific regions and cultivated under just the right conditions. The very best of the crop is “Garcinia Cambogia 2000”. Garcinia Cambogia wipes away fat so completely, that it has caught the attention of scientists and weight loss experts all over the globe. It works like nothing else seen before. Simply take as directed and eat reasonably. You can almost see your excess fat melt off your body. It’s just that effective! Experts predict, the data is so compelling... “Weight-loss centers could be forced to shut down. Diet doctors could be out of business within 5-years.” “There just won’t be a need for them anymore,” he added.

Gastric Bypass in a Bottle

The real power of Garcinia Cambogia lies deep inside the fruit. It contains an ingredient called HCA (Hydroxycitric Acid) that melts fat away in the same way stomach stapling does. Johan Stifling, a leading scientist in Utrecht Holland says: “With Garcinia it doesn’t take much to fill you up. You’re just not hungry anymore. The compound absolutely kills uncontrollable urges to binge on food in just minutes after taking it. After just a few bites, you’ll feel stuffed to the gills. You’ll swear your stomach has shrunk.” The secret is its ability to inhibit Citrate Lyase Enzyme (the stuff that turns carbs into fat). HCA builds an

“impenetrable wall” so fat can’t get absorbed by your body… so you simply can’t gain weight. Then, the HCA breaks up the fat you already have and forces it out of your body. Think about it. A pill that stops fat from being made, as it obliterates the fat you already have. Incredibly, the pounds and inches just roll off you.

Not Just for the Wealthy

Until recently, only the rich, famous and powerful have been able to try Garcinia Cambogia. But now, for the first time ever, the manufacturer has made this revolutionary perfected Garcina Cambogia and made it available to the general public. They Call it Garcina Cambogia 2000. And since the country’s obesity rate is at an all-time-high; it couldn’t have come at a better time.

When you take Garcinia...”After just a few bites of your meal, you’ll feel stuffed to the gills.”– Johan Stifling, Clinical Therapist

Unlike other products on the market that do little or nothing for your weight problem; Garcinia Cambogia 2000 contains the precise doses of Garcinia and HCA; cultivated in optimized conditions and perfected for rapid and permanent weight loss. The result? You’ll see changes in your appetite almost overnight!

Your Body... Perfected!

There’s a surprise side benefit in Garcinia Cambogia 2000 that virtually no other weightloss product can give you — MUSCLE! Garcinia Cambogia also builds up your muscle tone. So not only do you rid your body of ugly fat… you get stronger too! Take as directed and Garcinia Cambogia will have you slimmer, trimmer and strikingly fit. You’ll see a total body makeover in no time!

No More “Stress-Eating Binges”

If you’re an emotional eater (and who isn’t), you’ll never worry about over-eating again. Garcinia Cambogia 2000 stops your compulsion to "stuff your face" during times of stress. It’s pure magic. Garcinia Cambogia 2000 jump-starts your serotonin levels like a natural Xanex. So you don’t give in to the temptation of “comfort food” to calm down.

THESE STATEMENTS HAVE NOT BEEN EVALUATED BY THE US FOODAND DRUGADMINISTRATION. THESE PRODUCTS ARE NOT INTENDED TO DIAGNOSE, TREAT, CURE OR PREVENT ANY DISEASE. RESULTS NOT TYPICAL.

As new pill gains popularity, scenes like this will become rare and unusual. You’ll feel great, you’ll sleep great, and look great. And even be able squeeze into your favorite pair of skinny jeans again!

Healthier Heart

And here’s fantastic news for your heart. The HCA concentration in Garcinia Cambogia 2000 is proven to lower LDL ‘bad cholesterol’ by a whopping 31%. So you can enjoy the benefits of a healthy heart, great blood pressure numbers, and normal blood sugar too. That's great news for people have been overweight for years and put unnecessary stress on their heart.

Clinical Studies Don’t Lie!

In a recent study published in theAmerican Journal of Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism, scientists discovered that Garcinia Cambogia causes significant weight loss, lowers food intake and body weight gain, as well as tackling factors such as cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins, triglycerides, and serum leptin levels.

100% Safe

What’s more, Garcinia Cambogia contains no fillers, no binders, and it’s produced in state-of-the-art FDA registered lab facilities. It’s 100% safe, natural and won’t interfere with your regular medications. So you can lose weight with confidence.

Ecstatic Users

Sandy M. of Orlando, FL said, “I lost 4 pounds a week. And my ‘bad cholesterol’ dropped almost 30%!” Robin B. of Minneapolis, MN adds, “I was skeptical. But when I saw a Famous TV Doctor that recommend it, I tried Garcinia Cambogia. I was shocked! I lost 20 lbs. in the first month!” Special arrangements have been made with the manufacturer to supply our readers with a risk-free 30-day trial supply of Garcinia Cambogia.

Good riddance to this expense

K

udos to B.C. Finance Minister Mike de Jong for standing up for taxpayers — albeit in a small way — by leading the charge to end a $61-perday food expense for the family members of MLAs visiting the legislature in Victoria. The little-known policy allowed spouses, children and grandchildren of MLAs to expense the per diem while visiting the provincial capital. “If people want to bring family members to Victoria, that’s fine, but they can pay for their own food,” de Jong told a reporter. We agree. While this move won’t save much in the scheme of things, it makes for good optics, which are important. Just ask ex-Alberta premier Alison Redford — who enraged taxpayers by spending $45,000 on first-class tickets and a government plane to fly to Nelson Mandela’s funeral. In B.C., the thought of MLAs’ family members feasting — literally — at the public trough isn’t a tasty proposition, especially as average Joes struggle to get by in a province with a higher-than-average cost of living. How many people spend $61 a day on food when they travel? For a couple, the combined $122 per diem could go a long way — even longer for a child, who would presumably be eating off the kids menu. Lobster, anyone? This change won’t make a dent in government spending, but it gives the impression that some in Victoria “get it.”

On its website, Chevron describes the program as “an online charity that allows K-12 teachers to request assistance in obtaining the school supplies they need for eligible classroom projects ... to help support and improve critical education programming and materials, particularly in the STEM subjects — science, technology, engineering and math — to help prepare students for the growing number of technical jobs in the modern economy…” The program provides funds based on the amount of gas purchased at local Chevron gas stations. Some may think that this is a good thing when the private sector steps in to help cover the costs of underfunded public services. I would prefer to see our government adequately finance the education system. The IMF recently observed that Canadian taxpayers subsidize the fossil fuel industry to the tune of $34 billion a year. Why are we providing corporate welfare to big energy corporations while we have nothing left to educate our children? Perhaps we should redirect B.C.’s share of these subsidies to energy corporations back into our public education system. The private sector has no “business” using our public education system as a tool to market its products. It certainly should not be setting priorities in the classroom. Why should the fossil fuel industry have a say over whether the STEM subjects are better funded than others? What about the need to prepare students for jobs in a green economy as we transition away from fossil fuels? Let big energy stick to what it does best — making massive profits off of public resources — and keep its hands off our education system.

Liberals exude confidence

T

he end of the legislature session allows us to take stock of our MLAs, our political parties and the political scene in general. Who emerged as key players? Which issues resonated with the public? The B.C. Liberals continued to exude confidence — even cockiness — throughout the session as their MLAs still ride high in the saddle after the unexpected new lease on political life being granted to them by the voters last year. Premier Christy Clark has gone from being derided as “premier photo-op” for insisting on being front and centre in everything her government was doing, to being a hands-off leader willing to delegate all kinds of responsibilities to those around her. She is also very clearly the leader of her party and caucus, and continues to be their star performer in the legislature (although she has continued her disdain for the place, usually only attending the session two days a week). It also became even more clear in this past session that the “quarterback” of the B.C. Liberals is Finance Minister Mike de Jong. As the government house leader he controlled the legislature’s proceedings and acted as a calming presence for his side when things got a little raucous. Of the veterans on the government side, Energy Minister Bill Bennett has gone from being banished from Gordon Campbell’s government to being a major force under Clark. And it is evident that Jobs Minister Shirley Bond, Environment Minister Mary Polak and LNG Minister Rich Coleman are key lieutenants to the premier. Of the newcomers, Transportation Minister Todd Stone stood out as per-

haps the ablest performer in the house, as he time and again swatted away NDP attacks on his reductions to some BC Ferry route sailings or on his plans for transit and transportation in Metro Vancouver. After a bit of a shaky start, AttorneyGeneral Suzanne Anton seemed to steady herself and emerged stronger at the end of the session than at the beginning. And Technology Minister Andrew Wilkinson displayed a demonstrable ability to really get under the skin of NDP MLAs, thus pretty well ensuring he may get a higher profile portfolio sooner than later. On the NDP side, things weren’t quite as rosy. The caucus is slowly coming out of the near-coma-like state that enveloped it for so long after the party’s devastating election loss, and some veteran MLAs often looked like they would have liked to have been anywhere other than the legislature. The party’s leadership problem was a major distraction for most of the session, and helped suck the energy out of the caucus. The inevitable choice of John Horgan as leader came too late in the session to have much of an impact on things. The caucus didn’t garner much media coverage during the session, which isn’t that unusual in the first year of a government’s mandate. The NDP rarely

broke new ground on many issues, and often offered predictably negative responses to anything the government did. Question period, the prime vehicle to get public attention, often consisted of NDP MLAs asking questions about issues or stories that were weeks old or had already received widespread attention. And so QP, so vital a tool to an Opposition party, often became a non-event. There was the odd exception, of course. Most notable was the NDP’s focus on the “claw back” of child support payments to women on disability assistance. The party made credible arguments about the unfairness of the government’s policy, and I wouldn’t be surprised if some positive changes occur as a result. Two pieces of legislation stood out: one to allow a transit referendum in Metro Vancouver, and the other to divide the Agriculture Land Reserve into two zones, with one of them having more potential for development of farmland. The NDP chose the ALR bill as the hill to die on, and the session ended in acrimony and bitterness (for some) as the bill inevitably passed into law. It was a fitting issue on which to end the session, since the ALR legislation neatly framed a crucial difference between the two parties, as the changes it allows will likely be more popular in the Interior and the North, two areas the NDP is increasingly having trouble connecting with. And so the legislature now sits quiet until October, when the politicians return and the shouting begins anew. I can’t wait! Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.


LETTERS CONSIDER SAVING A LIFE

Re: “PoCo woman waits for lifesaving transplant,” Friday, May 30. As soon as I saw the headline in your Friday edition, I felt compelled to write you this letter. Four years ago, on June 1, 2010, I donated a kidney, and I want to appeal to all your readers to also consider donating a kidney, and to contact BC Transplant. Their phone number is 604-877-2240. Now to my story. When I retired in 2009, I found out, by attending clinics with my wife, that her renal condition was much more severe than I was led to believe, and that she was close to requiring dialysis. I immediately contacted BC Transplant to get on the Paired Kidney Exchange Program, and was sent a questionnaire about my health. Following a number of tests, it was established that I was a match with my wife, and this speeded things up. The removal operation was done laparoscopically, which left only small scars, and healed quite fast. Within two weeks, I was driving again, and by the fifth week, I was doing all the things

If you are not in good health, and if your kidneys are not working optimally, you will not be considered for donation, so that your own health won’t be compromised.

Local rogue dentist ordered to pay $69K Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com His time as a rogue dentist has come with a price. Last week, a B.C. Supreme Court judge ordered Tung Sheng (David) Wu to pay $69,000 to the College of Dental Surgeons of BC to cover the cost of investigating and prosecuting his unauthorized practice. “We are gratified with the order and hope to be able to execute on it,” the college’s registrar and CEO, Jerome Marburg, wrote in an e-mail to the Tri-Cities NOW. A few days earlier, Wu appeared in court and disputed some of the college’s claims, saying the investigation costs should be paid for by the college’s registrants, rather than him. The college was looking for Wu, who now reportedly lives in Port Coquitlam, to pay out more than $100,000. But B.C. Supreme Court Associate Chief Justice Austin Cullen noted the college had only been successful in finding Wu guilty of civil contempt of court, rather than

Tung Sheng (David) Wu the more serious criminal contempt of court. He said the college was therefore only entitled to 70 per cent of the “special” legal costs it had sought against Wu. The judge also said he was not going to order that Wu pay the full amount the college sought for its investigation, saying evidence of the scope of the investigation was lacking. The dentist’s saga began last August after health officials sent out a warning to anyone who received treatment from Wu that they may have been exposed to serious

viruses. Fraser Health issued the alert after Wu, who they say had performed illegal dentistry in Port Moody, Coquitlam and Burnaby, appeared to be setting up shop again — despite a court order against him. On Monday, the health authority said it has been in contact with more than 450 people who were Wu’s clients since the alert was issued last year. Fraser Health said it had not identified any individuals who got an infection as a result of seeing Wu, but urged any former clients to contact their doctor. The revelations about Wu surfaced after an investigation by the dental college in the spring of 2013. Wu then went on the lam after a warrant was issued for his arrest when he failed to show up to court in August. In November, a judge in Vancouver sentenced the fake dentist to three months in jail for civil contempt of court. — with files from The Province

During denning, bears lose about 30% of their body mass. Cubs are born during denning and live with their

Grant retiring after 7 years at school district CONT. FROM PAGE 6

“It’s been a career that’s been focused on teaching and learning, community development, engagement of students and staff,” said Grant, 63. “I’m proud to say we did some good things for some wonderful learners.” Grant denied the last few years’ worth of district deficits and surging layoff numbers swayed his decision. He said he was set to retire last fall, though the hiring of secretary-treasurer Mark Ferrari pushed back those plans. “It is not an easy decision,” he said. “But I hung on a

while longer because I didn’t want to leave our new secretary-treasurer in the midst of the budget process.” During his time with the district, Grant helped oversee renovation, or new construction projects, at Centennial Secondary, Pitt River and Eagle Mountain middle schools, and Glen and James Park elementary schools. Plans are also underway for the replacement of Banting and Moody Middle schools. He also oversaw the implementation of specialty academies like the Mandarin bilingual and Reggio Emilia programs.

“Tom has always put students at the forefront of all decisions being made at the senior level,” school board chair Melissa Hyndes said in a news release. “He has guided and mentored the district leadership team and the board of education through some very difficult times. We will deeply miss Tom …” As for what’s next in his life, Grant isn’t overly sure. “Right now, it is completely open,” he said. “It will be my first winter holiday in 38 years. It will be time spent with the grandchildren. I’m going to look at the oppor-

Lawn sprinkling regulations are now in effect

Lawn sprinkling regulations began June 1 “to conserve high-quality drinking water,” according to Metro Vancouver. From June 1 to Sept. 30, lawn sprinkling is not permitted during evenings, when the demand for water for dishwashers, clothes washing, showers and other domestic uses is at its daily peak. One lawn sprinkler uses as much water in one hour as 25 toilet flushes, five loads of laundry and five dishwasher loads. “One hour of lawn sprinkling each week is all that’s needed for lawns to remain healthy,” said board chair and PoCo Mayor Greg Moore. “Don’t waste a drop. Why waste high-quality drinking water on lawns?” The demand for water doubles during the hottest days of summer, to as much as two billion litres of water a day. In 1993, municipalities and Metro Vancouver began asking residents and businesses to comply with lawn sprinkling regulations that are in place from June 1 to Sept. 30 each year. Lawn sprinkling regulations — along with other water conservation initiatives, such as bylaws that require more water-efficient toilets in new construction — have resulted in a 26-per-cent decline in per capita water consumption in the region between 1993 and 2013. Lawn sprinkling is only permitted before 9 a.m., at the following times and days of the week: • Even numbered residential addresses — Monday, Wednesday or Saturday mornings, between 4 and 9 a.m. • Odd numbered residential addresses — Tuesday, Thursday or Sunday mornings, between 4 and 9 a.m. Metro Vancouver recommends that people water their lawns a maximum of just one hour a week. Some residents collect rainwater in rain barrels and use that non-potable water for lawns and gardens. And many are choosing not to put drinking water on their lawns. After a few days of rain and cloudy skies, a yellow lawn greens up again. These restrictions apply to lawn sprinkling only. Residents can use tap water to water flowers, vegetables, shrubs and trees. Some tips to minimize the quantity of water that’s wasted on lawns: • Over-watering a lawn makes the grass weaker and more susceptible to disease. • A healthy lawn only needs to be watered for one hour, once a week, or less if it rains. • Most lawns only need 2.5 cm or one inch of water each week. Put an empty tuna can out on the lawn when you sprinkle. Turn off the sprinkler when the tuna can is full of water. • Water your lawns and

gardens early in the morning to reduce evaporation.

• Leave grass clippings on your lawn to help reduce

evaporation and the need to water your lawn.

• Replace lawns with ornamental grasses and other

drought-resistant plants that require little or no watering.

Stay healthy and vital Protect rec vehicles with these lifestyle tips By Kim Angelakis, national director of clinical education and research at We Care Home Health Services Very few of us enjoy getting older. With each passing year, life can bring new challenges, ailments and obstacles. Although many older individuals live with chronic health conditions, (71 per cent of Canadians aged 60 to 79 have at least one) there are many things that can be done to remain active and vital at this stage in life. Those afflicted with chronic health problems often feel as though they have little control over their life, but there are many little things they can do that can make a big difference. Our staff at We Care Home Health Services has found that certain lifestyle choices can profoundly affect not only the quality of their life, but also their ability to be independent of others’ care. Taking a page out of We Care’s free Get Going to Keep Going Guide, I offer the following tips: Get Eating: Eating a healthy balance of nutritious foods can be easy and fun by choosing a new fruit or vegetable to explore each week. A healthy diet promotes brain function and provides essential nutrients to the body’s most critical organs. Get Active: If possible, get walking, stretching or doing simple exercises.

As with other vehicles, insuring a motorcycle involves choosing from numerous policy options, but there is an easy way to cut through the clutter when deciding what is best for you: “I strongly suggest getting the most comprehensive coverage available,” says Western Financial Group regional senior vice president Greg McGill. “Even if you are an occasional rider, the dangers are the same, so you want to be prepared for anything.” Fact: The value and make of your bike affects the cost of your insurance. Keep this in mind when purchasing a motorcycle.

Recreational vehicles A recent Western Financial Group study showed that on average, Canadian RV owners spend 34 nights per year in the vehicle, and the majority (78 per cent) agree that most of their trips are to nearby destinations. Regardless of how far from home you travel, or the length of time you’re away, you can never be too prepared. To avoid liabilities associated with driving an RV, speak to your provider about appropriate protection. Fact: What you are allowed to do in an RV varies greatly when it is stationary versus

Water vehicles Boats and other watercraft can be a lot of fun, yet they can also be a major expense, especially if you fail to insure them correctly (or at all). “You wouldn’t drive your car without proper coverage, so you should be as diligent about your water vehicle,” explains McGill. “Given the range of options available, it’s best to contact a professional to find out exactly what you need.” Fact: If your vessel qualifies as a yacht, that not only changes your insurance picture, it also alters what you can and cannot do on the water.

Tips on how to prepare for a visit to your doctor

M

ost people don’t put much thought into preparing for their visits to the doctor, although a few seniors will wear their Sunday’s best — women in their formal dresses and men in suits and ties. Women often apologize for not shaving their legs (though that doesn’t bother doctors at all) and men may not have had time to shower after work (though that may bother us a little). Doctors are used to seeing you at your worst — when you’re midway through the worst flu ever, recovering from major surgery, or throughout a long labour and the delivery of a baby. Beyond basic grooming, making an appointment or just dropping in, there are a few things you can do to be better prepared for a visit to your doctor. Let’s begin with the list. That’s not the list of essential qualities you seek in an ideal mate nor is it the to-do list your real-life spouse has written for you. Both may be beyond human achievement. I mean your list of concerns or your problem list. Because of the constant pressure of time, many doctors hope that it is a short list. But to be realistic, our lives are

HEALTH WISE

Dr. Davidicus Wong complicated and sometimes we have to deal with a lot of problems at once. When I’m on the verge of feeling overwhelmed with unlucky patients’ unending lists of problems, I imagine how hard daily life is for those patients and their families. To prepare your doctor and the clinic staff for your visit, when booking your appointment, tell the medical office assistant everything that you would like to address during the visit. This will ensure that there is adequate time to deal with your concerns. If there isn’t, one or two of your problems may have to be addressed at a separate visit. Provide your list in point form. Save the complete history of how each problem evolved for your doctor. The medical office assistant is multitasking other duties beyond answering the phone and booking appointments. One reason for your visit may be to review the results of a recent test or to

discuss a visit to a consultant. By informing the staff in advance, they can ensure that the reports are available for your visit. If something else comes up after booking the appointment, inform the staff when you arrive at the clinic. Again, this is to ensure that there is adequate time to address your concerns and that the doctor has everything needed to attend to your needs. When you meet with your doctor, take a moment to review your list and agree on the objectives of the day’s visit. The doctor may have a list of things you should review together, such as the results of a recent investigation or a screening test that you may need at this time. The two of you may need to negotiate the agenda for this visit and if more time is needed, a plan for addressing some of the problems at a future appointment can be set. Finally, while preparing for your medical visit, don’t forget to bring a pen and paper. You will need it to write down what you have

discussed with your physician, the plan of action and any medical terminology that is new to you. In summary, be prepared for every medical visit by (1) making a list of your concerns, (2) sharing it with the staff when you call for an appointment, (3) briefly reviewing that list with your doctor at the beginning of your visit, and (4) bringing a pen and paper to write down what you wish to remember.

Conquer your children’s toy clutter

Too much household clutter is not only unsightly but also can contribute to a stressful environment. Children’s toys are often key contributors to homes overrun with clutter, but with a growing number of family and birthday and holiday gifts streaming in, it can be challenging for parents to tame toy-related clutter. Parents who have hosted play dates know that once the fun ends their youngsters’ rooms often appear overrun with toys. Kids have a funny knack of taking out every toy they own without putting their toys away. But with a few tips, anyone can conquer the clutter created by toys.

Start to organize When you have everything laid out in clear view, start to divide and conquer. Create groups in which to sort the toys. Dolls should be in one pile, building blocks in another and so on. Figure out a system that works for your family. You may find that active, sports-related items can be moved to the garage, while board games and books may be moved to a family room or a community closet in the house to free up more space in playrooms. Seasonal toys can be stored away in an attic or basement until they are needed.

Create accessible storage

Toys should be stored where kids can easily access them. Clear bins are great for storage, and such bins come in a variety of sizes. Construct cubbies in the playroom where these bins can be kept. Be sure they are nearly at ground level and not too heavy so that children can easily get to their toys come play time.

Canyon Springs Montessori School

In many ways, today’s kids have busier schedules than any previous generation of youngsters. Many extracurricular activities, including sports, require a nearly year-round commitment, and the dual-income household has landed many

kids in afterschool programs where kids tend to their schoolwork or engage in various activities that keep them from resting on their laurels. But those busy schedules get a lot less hectic when the school year ends. Once school is out, kids used to a full schedule might find themselves with lots of time on their hands. Though it’s good for kids to squeeze in some rest and relaxation during their summer break, it’s also important for kids to stay active so they don’t develop poor habits as the summer goes on. In addition, the American Psychological Association notes that kids who are physically active are more capable of coping with stress and tend to have higher self-esteem than kids who do not include physical activity as part of their regular routines. The following are a few suggestions for parents looking for ways to keep their kids active throughout the summer while still allowing them to recharge their batteries after a long school year. • Plan an active vacation. Summer is when many families go on vacation, so why not choose a vacation that involves more than napping poolside? Though it’s still good to leave some time for relaxation, find a locale where you can embrace activities like snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, or other adventures that get you and your youngsters off the poolside chaise and out exploring. Such a trip might inspire kids to embrace an activity more fully, getting them off the couch not only while they’re on vacation but also when they return home for the rest of summer. • Teach kids to garden. Gardening might be seen as a peaceful and relaxing hobby, but it still requires a lot of elbow grease and hard work that pays physical dividends.

Kids on the Go...

The School Year Ends A garden must be planted, hoed, weeded, and watered, and gardening gets kids out of the house to enjoy the great outdoors. When growing a vegetable garden, kids might embrace the chance to be directly involved in the foods that will eventually end up on their dinner tables. Parents can embrace this as an opportunity to teach the value of eating locally-produced foods and the positive impact such behavior has on the environment. • Go swimming. Few adults who work in offices haven’t looked out their windows on a sunny summer day and thought how nice it would be to be spending that afternoon making a few laps in a lake, at the beach or in a pool. Kids have the same daydreams during the summer, so take a day off every so often and take the kids for an afternoon of swimming. Swimming is a great activity that exercises the entire body, including the shoulders, back, legs, hips, and abdominals. In addition, swimming helps kids and adults alike maintain a healthy weight while also improving their cardiovascular health. It’s hard for some people to find a place to swim once the warm weather departs, so take advantage of the summer weather and go swimming as often as possible while the kids are not in school. • Limit how much time kids spend watching television, playing video games or surfing the Internet. Many of today’s kids are as tech savvy as they are busy. But it’s important that kids don’t spend too much time online or on the couch watching television or playing video games. Such activities are largely sedentary,

Summer Programs • Samplers

and they can set a bad precedent for the months ahead, even when the school year begins once again. Parents should limit how much time their youngsters spend in front of the television or the computer during summer vacation, keeping track and turning the TV or computer off if they suspect kids are spending too much time staring at the screen instead of being active. Kids might not love it when you turn their video games off or minimize their access to social media, but explain the limitations at the onset of summer and let kids know you expect them to be physically active even if it is summer vacation. — MetroCreative

Summer Camps

Camps benefit kids healthy environment. After participating in a full day of activity, often out of doors, and enjoying regular, nutritious meals, campers are ready for a good night’s sleep, whether in their camp cabin or tent or at home after a busy camp day. The CSCRP reported that “61 per cent of campers showed improved attitudes towards physical activity by the end of their camp session.” Camp builds character and self-esteem. Emulating the example of camp leaders, children become co-operative, caring and considerate members of the camp community. As they enjoy novel experiences, acquire new skills and cope independently away from home, they become more capable and confident. Returning campers develop leadership skills. Sixty-nine per cent of the participants in the CSCRP experienced positive development in the area of emotional intelligence, i.e. the ability to recognize and deal with one’s own emotions and the emotions of others at an age-

appropriate level. Camp teaches skills. The “harder” skills, like sailing, canoeing and soccer, become leisure pursuits for a lifetime while the “softer” skills, like sharing, consideration, conflict resolution and self-confidence, are both transferable and lifelong. Camp is a place to experience fun, laughter, wonder and joy. Camp provides a time of relief and rest from the pressures, demands, schedules and stress, which too often are a reality of young people’s daily lives. Laughter and fun are as important to health and wellness as medicine or treatment. Camp parents recognize the benefits that camp provides. Here are some of their testimonials: — “I marvelled as to how two weeks could make such a difference in a young life — but it really did. I think the combination of developing skills and friendships in a setting away from home builds tremendous confidence.” — “Camp has been an important part of our daughter’s growing up. She has gained a great deal from the

activities and the companionship and leadership of the counsellors.” — “Both our children are far better people for their camp experience and both have learned valuable skills, which will benefit them throughout life.” — “Chris returned home a little more independent, proud of his accomplishments and full of fun memories, which will last forever.” — “My daughters went to camp in July and came home with such a positive outlook on life. They enjoyed it tremendously and learned how to overcome fears and try new tasks.” — “Camp was the best experience of my son’s life. It gave him more confidence … he felt like he was part of this big family. Since my son went to camp, he has a lot more confidence in himself and he is more helpful. He has stepped up as a role model to his younger siblings and also his cousins.”

PoCo gymnast gets gold bounce THIRD TIMES THE CHARM AS WATSON TOPS ALL-AROUND TITLE Dan OLSON

The previous two senior men’s championships saw Watson earn a podium spot — second in 2013 and third in 2012. On the final day of competition, he qualified for four of six finals, placing fourth on both floor and high bars, fifth on parallel bars and sixth on rings. Knowing that the elusive allaround title was within reach didn’t make him more nervous, but he admitted feeling some pressure. “A lot of things have to come together for a good day, and when it’s not a good day usually I feel shaky and nervous. You don’t feel like things are clicking,” Watson noted. “I wasn’t nervous, but I just wanted to make them as clean as possible.” With his 2010 Commonwealth Games flip-flops along for good luck, Watson cleared a hurdle against a crowded 43-athlete field. The end result should see the Twisters Gym Club member receive some of the more high profile international meet assignments over the next 10 months. “It’s really important, and hopefully it puts me more in the eyes of the national coaches when it comes to international competitions,” he said. “I love getting the chance to represent my country and I’d love to go to the [2014] Commonwealth

sports@thenownews.com Playing to his strengths had earned Robert Watson Canadian artistic gymnastics medals over the past two years — but it was raising his game on all apparatus that earned him the senior men’s all-around title last weekend in Ottawa. Watson, of Port Coquitlam, captured the men’s championship by being steadier and stronger in his usual tougher events — with his only individual medal coming in the parallel bars, where he secured bronze. “My strongest event was parallel [bars],” said Watson, 20. “Parallel is one of my better routines, and I definitely felt like I had a good day.” He finished fourth on both floor and high bars, but made his biggest step by scoring the 11th best score on pommel horse. “I was pleased with my routine — it wasn’t the cleanest but I know I had a good routine,” he said. “Pommel is usually one of my weaker events and sometimes I fall, which I totally wanted to avoid. The way the points were, I knew if I did hit it I could potentially win. When I finished I felt good.” He also placed 10th on rings and 15th on vault, ending with a final point total of 82,100 — 500 more than his nearest rival.

PERREAULT TO LEAD NLL STEALTH

VICTORIA POWERS PAST ADANACS The Coquitlam senior Adanacs went a perfect three-forthree with the man advantage, but the one shorthanded goal they surrendered proved costly in a 7-6 loss to Victoria last Friday. The Adanacs spent much of the game playing catch-up, as the host Shamrocks led 4-2 and 6-3 before a big charge over the final 20 minutes. Victoria’s Tyler Hass netted a shortman marker in the first, and Ben McCullough would tally the winner off a penalty shot midway through the third. Brett Hickey notched a goal and two assists in the loss. Also scoring were Kyle Dobbie, Tyler Garrison, Jaedon Gastaldo, Brandon Goodwin and Ryan Keith.

TheVancouverStealthannouncedTuesdaythatDanPerreault is the National Lacrosse League club’s new head coach. A Coquitlam resident, Perreault had served the past two years as an assistant to head coach Chris Hall, who is retiring due to health issues. “I’m honoured to have the confidence of (Stealth owner) Denise Watkins, (general manager) Doug Locker and Chris,” Perreault said in news release. “Chris’ retirement leaves big holes to fill, but the Stealth have a winning tradition and I look forward to infusing my style into the team and fulfilling that tradition in the seasons ahead.” Last year, the team struggled in its first season based in Langley, missing the playoffs. Hall had previously guided the club to three NLL championship finals over four years, winning it all in 2010. Perreault also coaches the New West junior Salmonbellies.

GLENEAGLE STANDS TALL AT BCS

Ranked 16th to start the tournament, the Gleneagle Warriors senior boys rugby team did what all good underdogs do — they played with passion at last week’s B.C. AAA championships. Although they finished with a 1-3 record and 14th overall, the squad were true to their nickname. Opening against the defending B.C. champions from Shawnigan Lake, Gleneagle held up fairly well in a 34-0 loss. They came back and put up a valiant battle against Kelowna before falling 24-14. With two losses to their name, the Warriors buckled down and continued the march, this time upsetting South Kamloopos 24-12, with tries from Kaell Hutchinson, Kalam Harley and two by Mitch Howey. Aarman Bondar would add a convert. In their final test, Gleneagle scored first — off Hutchinson’s third try of the tourney — before falling to Semiahmoo 2412.

Wadhwani wins twice Nathan Wadhwani set the pace twice on the weekend. It led the Terry Fox Ravens distance runner to a pair of first-place finishes at the B.C. High School Track and Field championships in Langley. Wadhwani topped the 1,500-metre run on Friday, then added the 3,000m title to make it a pair. The Grade 12 runner, who also scooped up the high school cross country title in November, won the 3000m event in 8:38.75, five minutes faster than John Gay of Okanagan-Mission. His margin of victory in the 1500m was noticeably closer, as he posted a 3:56.14 finish, just 1.34 seconds ahead of Reid Muller of Pitt Meadows. Also bringing home the gold were Dr. Charles Best’s Addy Townsend, who topped the senior girls 800m race with a time of 2:10.65, Archbishop Carney’s Brittni Wolczyk in the javelin, and Gleneagle’s Eric Chatten in the senior boys high jump. Chatten cleared two metres in his winning jump, edging Argyle’s James Elson’s similar leap. Coming in third was Adam Chatten, with a bronzewinning clear of 1.95m. In her third provincial javelin contest, Wolczyk managed to equal her personal

But Wolczyk celebrated once she saw the extended tape. “I knew (45m) wasn’t out of my reach because I hit it at

the Valleys,” she said. “I didn’t even need to hear them call the number, because once I saw the distance tape it was like ‘I did it!’” This time, she bested her Langley track club teammate Rasche’s throw of 44.97 by a slim margin. Rasche, also in Grade 11, would pick up her second silver of the meet in the senior girls hammerthrow, hurling a distance of 53.09m. In third spot was Dr. Charles Best’s Chanell Botsis, who posted a distance of 51.51m.
