hen the New Westminster Hyacks coaches and players had a problem with an intricate play they’d look over at Nick Adomat and say, “Hey, Adomat, you’re in International Baccalaureate, you can figure this out, can’t you?” Sure they were teasing, but the kidding came with a large dose of admiration. “They always bugged me about IB, but it was all in fun,” smiles Adomat, who will enter the engineering program at Montreal’s McGill University in the fall as well as play for the school’s football team. The 6-foot-2, 250-pound offensive lineman pulled off a rare high school combo at NWSS. He was a starter on the varsity football team as well as being in the school’s IB program for intellectual heavyweights. He also found time to play soccer. Hyacks head coach Farhan Lalji says since he took over the football program in 2003,

Adomat is the first student that’s been able to grind it out on the gridiron as well as be in IB from start to finish. Doing so requires immense amounts of commitment and extremely divergent skills. “The fact he has always been so focused and organized while maintaining such a high academic standard and play a competitive sport and not slip in any areas is very rare,” says Lalji. That dedication was tested at a personal level last September. When the team returned from playing an exhibition game in Oregon his father Hans picked him up from the bus. When Adomat got in the car he could sense something was wrong and his dad said they needed to talk when they got home. When they did, Hans told Nick his mother, Sheryle Taylor, had passed away the day before. His parents had divorced several years earlier and he went to live with his father. His mother had battled health problems for quite a few years. “It was sort of expected, but not at that point. It was pretty shocking,” says Adomat. “I didn’t know what to think for quite a while, I didn’t know what to say.”

Nick Adomat is a hulking offensive lineman and a top student in physics at New Westminster secondary. He’ll be taking both talents to McGill University in Montreal in September.

He had mixed feelings because he didn’t get to see her often. Like her ex-husband, Taylor worked in the medical field and had moved around after the divorce. “It was hard to have a solid relationship,” says Nick. “She was important to me ... but it’s hard to explain.” When Adomat told Lalji the news the coach said, “Take all the time you need, Nick. If you want to take the entire season, that’s all right.” Adomat replied, “No, I’ll be there Monday.” The only practice he missed was to attend the funeral. Adomat felt going to

practice was something his mother would have wanted him to do because football was her favourite sport. “If I didn’t do anything it would be worse because I would think about it,” says Adomat. “The football team was very supportive. They were there for me to talk about it if I wanted to. The coaches were, too. A football team is just like a family.” And that family is extremely proud of him. “Nick is one of the most impressive young men I’ve ever had the privilege of being around. What he was able to do this year in light of the tragedy in his life

Adomat began playing football in Grade 8 when his good friend Jamie Wandell, an even bigger budding behemoth than Adomat, talked him into giving it a try. “I didn’t know much about it, but I decided to try it and if I liked it I would come back. Once I played it I loved it,” says Adomat, who continued to play soccer too. However, he was also fascinated with sciences, especially physics. He liked making the connection between science and how the world works. “You can see it when you’re walking around, whereas other classes it’s harder to apply to the real world.”

The New West school board has asked staff for more information on a proposal by superintendent John Woudzia to hire a noon-hour supervisor for a pilot project in order to extend lunch hour. District Parent Advisory Council vicepresident MaryAnn Mortensen recently told the board most schools in the district don’t allow enough time for children at lunch, only providing 15 minutes to wash their hands, eat and clean up. In his report to the board Tuesday, Woudzia said an extension of five to 10 minutes would require more supervision so he proposed up to 11 noon hour supervisors be hired to help facilitate the move. Since that would cost $46,200, Woudzia’s report was amended to propose one be hired for 2011-12 at Herbert Spencer at a cost of $4,200 with the results being analyzed and presented to the board March 27, 2012.

Sustainable food expo planned for River Market By Adrian MacNair CONTRIBUTOR

A digital rendering of Brooklyn Pub’s plan, as it would be seen from Front Street.

Pub plan goes to public hearing Although city engineering staff recommended against allowing the Brooklyn Pub to eliminate off-street parking from its proposed project, council has decided to take the request to a public hearing to get community feedback. The pub plans to build an 1,800-square-foot liquor store addition to its building on the current 28-stall parking lot. It also plans to build five apartment units above the store and pub, and fill in the space below the building facing Front Street with 6,000 square feet of commercial floor space that would be accessible from Columbia Street. “It’s a challenging site right on a cliff. If it is transformed there wouldn’t be any opportunity for parking,” said Coun. Jonathan Cote. SUSTAINABLE REGION INITIATIVE ...

A parking study suggested there is enough parking supply in the area to support the request, but the engineering department disagreed, saying in a report to council on Monday, “There is only a finite amount of space in public roadways to serve a variety of uses, particularly Downtown. On-street parking cannot be guaranteed over the long term as other city needs may preclude the use of on-street parking, such as accommodating the needs for pedestrians, cyclists, transit and vehicle movement.” Planning staff, however, recommended council consider the request and it agreed by deciding to take it to a public hearing. ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com TURNING IDEAS INTO ACTION

Most people might not think twice about where their food comes from, but a New Westminster woman wants to change that with a sustainable foods expo at the River Market on Canada Day. Laura Vladimirova, 28, says she wants to create conversations about the food we eat and take for granted. “I want to ask people to look a bit more deeply at some of the things they’ve come so used to having on their table and find the connection that those foods have with the world at large,” she said. She says her passion for food sustainability awakened while travelling abroad and living in an “ecovillage” in Pondicherry, India. There she learned about renewable energies and the resource costs that go in food production. When she moved to New Westminster last December from Brooklyn, New York— which she says reminds her greatly of her hometown— Vladimirova read about the River Market grants and applied with her project idea. She won a community grant for her idea of bringing foods sustainability to the minds of New West residents. She then spoke to Jen Arbo, an organizer of the Royal City Farmers Market, who provided her with a list of local farmers. Vladimirova, a vegetarian for 11 years, said “food politics” are complex and she doesn’t expect people to change overnight. “I do think there are a lot of

things we as a country can do to become more sustainable and more conscientious of how we produce our food,” she said. “But in terms of a large-scale solution it’ll take a lot of time and I’m not even sure we have the answers yet as to what that actually entails.” She said not eating meat just one day a week can significantly reduce environmental impact. One of the biggest challenges with eating local, organic food is the price,

which Vladimirova said can force a lot of people to only look at the cheapest solution. But she warned those people might not think about the hidden health and environmental costs of those choices. “If you’re buying your bread at Wal-Mart but you’re buying your eggplant at the farmers market that’s better than nothing,” she said. The food expo will be held at the River Market, 810 Quayside Dr., on Canada Day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and admission is free.

Fry proposal to go to hearing A controversial rezoning application by the Elizabeth Fry Society has been sent to a public hearing by New Westminster city council. The society wants to build a 21,000 square-foot-facility at its present location at East Columbia and Sherbrooke in Sapperton and on two neighbouring lots. Many speakers in support and opposition to the plans showed up at Monday’s council meeting. More than 90 signatures have been collected on a petition in the neighbourhood objecting to the plan. They fear it would encroach on their residences and possibly set a precedent for more commercial development on Sherbrooke opposite Royal Columbian Hospital. The public hearing has been tentatively scheduled for June 27. newsroom@ newwestnewsleader.com

Lacrosse hall of fame vows to move into civic centre Seeking funds to help plan and build exhibit By Grant Granger NEWSLEADER

Chuck Puchmayr vows the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame (CHLF) will be part of the new civic centre despite a report to city council saying the organization is having trouble coming up with funds for the planning and construction of its exhibit. “We are moving in there,” insisted Puchmayr, a former New Westminster MLA who is acting as spokesman and liaison for the organization. The city has set aside 1,400 square feet in the new complex on Columbia Street for the hall which has been tucked away at the Centennial Community Centre since the 1960s. Plans call for it to be alongside the city’s museum and archives, and art gallery spaces. In a report to council, Joanne Edey-Nicoll, assistant director of parks and recreation,

said for the CHLF exhibits to be completed in time for the centre’s opening, planning and construction must mirror that of the museum. Although it is conceivable doing it after the Multi-use Civic Facility (MUCF) is complete, the logistics may be problematic. There is no money in the centre’s budget for planning and construction of the lacrosse exhibits and displays, which the report estimates to be $104,000. “I am puzzled at the actual report,” said Puchmayr. If the city wants to have their consultants look over their plans for feedback that’s OK, he said, but the hall isn’t willing to pay a portion of the city’s consulting fees. “We have no intention of paying two consulting fees,” said Puchmayr. “We don’t have the money to pay a consultant to tell us how the shelving should go.” The report said based on the square footage, consultant fees would be $24,600. The MUCF budget includes $120 per square foot for the museum

and art gallery. Of that, $63 goes to wall coverings, lights and floor finishing. Those could be done in the hall’s space within the MUCF budget, said the report. The remaining $57 is for exhibit planning and construction, which works out to nearly $80,000. “We want it to be in a situation to make it work,” said Coun. Jonathan Cote. “Council is committed to seeing the hall be part of the museum.” Puchmayr said the hall plans to have interactive components so youngsters can come in with their lacrosse sticks to test the speed of their shot and their skills. The CLHF is also looking at a partnership with First Nations, both regional and national, for an elaborate entrance highlighting the genesis of the sport. The hall is also seeking other sources of government funding. “We do have a plan of how we want to see that happen,” said Puchmayr. The hall has also fielded offers from Ontario to move it there, he added.

Coquitlam seeks UBE push New Westminster councillors ‘disappointed’ with neighbour’s action By Grant Granger NEWSLEADER

Coquitlam has asked the provincial government to take steps to make sure the proposed United Boulevard Extension (UBE) goes ahead, which has some New Westminster councillors taking exception.

After several consultations with Sapperton residents, TransLink decided last month to abandon plans to improve the connection of United Boulevard to New West despite a commitment of $65 million from Ottawa for the project. In a letter to Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom, Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart appealed to the province to find a way to get rid of a bottleneck that he says is holding the regional economy back. “There are serious federal dollars at risk and a significant

—EDITORIAL—

Axe tax proposal Perhaps there is never a good time to propose a vehicle levy but this latest reincarnation of the dreaded car tax comes at a bad time. For one thing, the prospect of paying on average $122 per car, depending on the size of the vehicle, on top of new tolls, higher gas prices and AirCare fees is daunting given that incomes aren’t rising as fast as all the other bills. When the fee was originally proposed in the 1990s, it was only $75 and was soundly trashed. Now, it’s even bigger, and although it’s scaled to the size of vehicles to give the appearance of being green, most people will just see it as a tax and won’t like it any better. The problem is a transit tax is hard to justify to people living in the suburbs beyond New Westminster and Burnaby, where transit is minimal and most families still need two cars. At the same time, road and transit projects that could create some relief — such as the Evergreen Line — are either on hold or history. It’s true TransLink needs the cash to put it on more sustainable footing so it can pay for large infrastructure projects but there is a such a gap in public trust that people aren’t likely to believe they’ll see any benefit from the fee. They wonder, for example, why they still have to pay for AirCare when their car and most others never fail. They wonder why TransLink carried over a $16-million surplus and why the Evergreen Line is still stalled. Meanwhile, transit in single-family neighbourhoods will never be as good as it is in denser areas of the region, so this transit tax doesn’t have any initial benefit for those who could be forced to pay it. To sell this tax will require a lot of creative thinking. One idea would be to attach a sunset clause so that it dies after some of the big-ticket transit items have been paid off. Former premier Gordon Campbell got some mileage from taking down the toll booths on the Coquihalla and we think that’s an idea worth emulating. — Black Press

••••• I missed the mark with a recent column (Shifting priorities at school district, May 20) which mentioned a Tweedsmuir parent’s push to get kids a few more minutes to eat their lunches. My suggestion that DPAC was being political in its urgency on the issue was unfair. I’ve since learned the “eating time” issue has been around a while. My apologies.

district management and trustees during our monthly meetings. The lunch issue was then raised at six of our meetings this year. After much discussion and consensus among DPAC members, we settled on a motion requesting our school board comparing how our lunch periods compared to other districts with a view to extending the eating portion of the lunch break for our elementary and middle school students. We did not ask senior administrators to call 400 schools nor did we demand a report be done “tout de suite.” In fact, the former chair of our school board commented that he had wondered why it had taken so long for the issue to be brought before the board and he welcomed our input. At the March 29 school board meeting, I read out DPAC’s motion and submitted research compiled from internationally recognized and respected organizations and associations from the U.S. and Europe such as the CDC, the Journal of Childhood Nutrition and Management and the National Association of School Boards of Education (U.S.). The studies’ findings were clear; offer children

little time to eat their lunch and you negatively impact their health and education outcomes. Our children have waited for more than 10 years to get a reasonable eating, socializing and play time for their lunch break, so, forgive me if I laughed when I read that this issue could wait just a little bit longer. On behalf of DPAC, on April 30, I attended the British Columbia Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils’ AGM, bringing with me a resolution requesting that the ministries of education and health research and provide guidelines on the length of the lunch period for all B.C. students. This resolution was passed by a significant margin. Further, I issued a press release and gave several interviews to various media outlets who cared to ask questions. I did so to shine a brighter light on the issue and open discussion. It all comes down to good communication and reporting the facts, and not merely the opinion of those who seek to marginalize and discredit the efforts of volunteer parents in our school district. MaryAnn Mortensen Vice-chair, District Parents Advisory Council

Royal City Farmers Market ready to roll The Royal City Farmers Market begins its season next Thursday (June 9) and I look forward to another year filled with fun and conversations. We have been vendors for two years and the Royal City Farmers market is a favourite. In this busy time, it is so easy to drive to the supermarket to shop at breakneck speed in an effort to get our grocery needs met as quickly as possible. This sets up an experience that easily becomes rote and disconnected. It is simply a task rather than an event. By contrast, the trip to the local farmers market will rekindle enthusiasm for shopping and create opportunities to be connected to the community. Here you can meet friends and neighbours, stop for a chat over a coffee or snack. Each market has live entertainment and activities for the children that make them festive. From my stand, I enjoy watching the people at the market engage in conversations and make connections. I take pleasure in meeting our committed visitors every week and chatting

with visitors from all parts of the globe. In the blazing sun or relentless rain the farmers market has a spirit that endures all weather. I have many great memories of events that have happened during the market and I will never forget the little boy, grief-stricken, as he dropped the blueberries he had just bought. Hundreds of blueberries rolling down the hill looking more like an invasion of small insects. Then, I watched the scurry of people rushing about picking them up to the relief of the child. The Royal City Farmers Market is also unique because of the committed volunteers that help us every week. They see the value of the market for their community and share the enthusiasm that I have. Well before the opening, they are eagerly helping to unload the vendors’ trucks. On the hot days they bring by ice water to quench our thirst or offer to watch our stalls if we need a break. I value their commitment. New Westminster’s market is vibrant and full of life and it is the contact with others that makes the market so endearing. Doug Lowe Greendale Herb and Vine Chilliwack

Re: Shifting priorities at school district (Column, NewsLeader, May 20) Good communication is the foundation for a good relationship. If only the communication between the district, board and parents in New Westminster was good, what great things we could accomplish. I look to Burnaby, where DPAC is a welcome volunteer parent advisory group, enjoying participation on many varied committees, and communication between the district, board and parents is enviable. To give some perspective on the lunch “thing,” along with two other sub-committee members, I raised the issue of how long our children have to eat at our daughter’s previous elementary school in 200910, only to find barrier after barrier for any meaningful change. I had already done my own research in 2009-10 by calling 20 elementary schools in Burnaby and another 20 in Coquitlam. I found that more that 67 per cent of these schools offered students at least 25 minutes or more to eat. In 2009-10, the District Parent Advisory Council discussed the issue of lunch periods with both senior

“There is no other regional corridor where, for over 20 years, four lanes of goods movement capacity is choked down to one lane of alternating traffic on a Bailey bridge.” New Westminster Coun. Jonathan Cote said Tuesday he was disappointed Coquitlam took this action. He believes Coquitlam is asking Lekstrom to invoke the Significant Project Streamlining Act to override TransLink’s decision and New Westminster’s opposition. “I don’t think this is a situation where the province would go ahead with that,” said Cote, who can’t recall the province ever using it in such a capacity. He said most municipalities are uncomfortable with the province being able to override local authority so for another city to suggest it might be used against another is also disappointing. However, when the act was passed in 2003, Lekstrom voted against his BC Liberal colleagues because he did not believe local government autonomy should be overruled. Coun. Betty McIntosh did not find the letter as confrontational as Cote suggests. She said Coquitlam was only asking the province for help. “Give me a break, it’s never been used,” said McIntosh of the streamlining act, adding she doesn’t want to see the UBE and the proposed North Fraser Perimeter Road (NFPR) proceed. “I don’t think this project is as significant as Coquitlam thinks it is.” She said opening up the route will only dump more traffic into New West. McIntosh also noted that she has served four terms on council dating back to 1996 and although the NFPR has been frequently discussed there’s never been enough cash to proceed.

Even with the heavy IB workload he stuck with both his enthusiasm for sciences and his passion for pigskin. “I found it was pretty stressful for a long time, but by Grade 11 and 12 I got used to it.

That’s because he’s not big enough to play tackle at that level, and because the centre is the one that makes the offensive line assignment calls on every play.

buddy Wandell is going to St. Mary’s University in Halifax in the hope of reaching the Canadian Football League, Adomat doesn’t have his sights set on the CFL—although it isn’t beyond the realm of possibility. “It’s nice to move onto the next level, and there might be an opportunity and if there is I’ll take it, but I’ll be more focused on the academic side,� says Adomat. In other words, problem solved. ggranger@ newwestnewsleader.com

The New Westminster Salmonbellies couldn’t shake off the rust of a week-long layoff, losing to a tired Maple Ridge Burrards squad 9-7 in Western Lacrosse League action in Maple Ridge on Sunday. The Burrards had dropped a 14-11 decision to the Coquitlam Adanacs the night before. The ‘bellies stilled seemed to be enjoying their break in the ďŹ rst period, as they spotted the Burrards a 4-0 lead, including two goals in the ďŹ rst 1:10. Ian Hawksbee ďŹ nally got New West on the scoreboard 1:50 into the second frame, and a pair of goals by Alex Gajic less than two minutes apart got them to within one of the Burrards. But Curtis Dickson singlehandedly broke the game wide open with a trio of goals in three minutes, two of them shorthanded on the same penalty as Sam Cook sat in the box for high sticking. Nenad Gajic got one back late in the second, but Maple Ridge sealed the deal with two quick goals early in the third. Martin Cummings and Eric Lewthwaite with a pair made it close for the Salmonbellies, but it was too little too late. The game was rough and tumble, with the ‘bellies penalized 43 minutes while the Burrards were assessed 42

minutes on 14 penalties. The loss leaves the Salmonbellies without a win in their ďŹ rst two games of the season and dropped them down to sixth from second in the national rankings released on Monday. The two teams played a rematch Thursday at Queen’s Park Arena. • Even though the New Westminster Junior Salmonbellies hadn’t played a game since May 22, they moved up two places to fourth in the national Junior A lacrosse rankings.
