Councillors criticize E. coli warning Alex Browne Staff Reporter

City officials concerned with how White Rock residents were informed of a boilwater advisory will discuss the matter at an in-camera meeting Monday. The issue will be added to the agenda of a special meeting Aug. 30, called for by Couns. Doug McLean and Grant Meyer. Of concern, McLean said, is that both councillors and residents feel left out of the loop about the boil-water advisory issued by Fraser Health and water-supplier Epcor last Friday following the discovery of E. coli in the city’s water supply.

“I’ve had a lot of calls from residents who arrived home and did not know there was a boil-water advisory,” McLean said. “It’s a serious matter – we’re asking for a report on it.”

Meyer said there should have been an immediate door-to-door notification of residents, considering the number of seniors in the community and those with compromised immune systems. He said he got up at 3:30 a.m. Saturday for his shift with B.C. Ferries Corp. unaware of the advisory. “I drank a couple of glasses of water and brushed my teeth,” he said. Coun. Lynne Sinclair, who returned from vacation in San Francisco Monday, said she only found out about the advisory through a phone call from her mother. She said she doesn’t know why the city’s

emergency plan wasn’t deployed, or why there wasn’t a door-to-door campaign. “I went from Waterworld (a California theme park) to water nightmare,” she said. But both Mayor Catherine Ferguson and Fraser Health medical health officer Dr. Elizabeth Brodkin – while acknowledging the issue may have to be revisited in future – said they are supportive of the basic communications strategy that had been developed by the Edmonton-based water utility. Further – according to Ferguson and White Rock fire Chief Phil Lemire, the city’s emergency co-ordinator – it was the city’s  see page 3

Skating the law Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

Police escorted about two dozen longboarders down Johnston Road to White Rock City Hall this week, where the group chanted in protest to the city’s bylaw prohibiting longboarding on open public streets. Despite a lower-than-expected turnout – organizers predicted 150 to 300 participants – 16-year-old Evan House said the rally was successful in raising awareness about the needs of the longboarding community, as well as getting the attention of White Rock Mayor Catherine Ferguson, who met with the crowd. “This was just the first step,” House said, noting they now plan to apply as a delegation before council. House said the protestors want the bylaw amended – not abolished – to allow longboarding in the city but require riders to wear proper protective equipment. Currently, the activity – which is typically done on boards 90 to 150 centimetres in length – is prohibited on any public street unless it has been closed temporarily, as well as on any sidewalk or public right of way in the town centre.

Horse racing a better bet for provincial government F ...and frankly

between horse racing and casino gambling is that horse racing has supported an entire industry. While casinos certainly provide jobs for many people, the effect outside the walls of the casino is either negligible or negative. People who work in casinos spend money with local businesses, but those who gamble heavily and lose likely spend less than they used to. More of their money goes to the casino, and ultimately, to the government. Those who win at the casino likely will spend more money, but in the gambling business, the house always wins. Thus, the number of winners is likely not enough to counter the loss to the overall economy caused by those who lose. If the province was willing to take the time to understand the overall impact of casino gambling versus racetrack gambling, and comprehend the effect of shortened race seasons, it might take some steps that would make a difference. If less effort went into setting up online gaming sites, for example, and more attention paid to making horse racing attractive to gamblers, there might well be an increase in the amount of money bet at the track. That would make a huge difference. That in turn would lead to bigger purses, more horses being entered and more people being employed in the industry. It’s an option that needs to be given full consideration. Frank Bucholtz writes Fridays for the Peace Arch News. He is the editor of the Langley Times.

news Coast guard auxiliary called out several times

Beach emergencies keep rescuers busy Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Evan Seal photo

Not all swimmers needed rescuing Wednesday, as Brett Owen, 13, does a flip off the pier.

A White Rock woman is praising fellow beachgoers and lifeguards with averting potential tragedy, after a teenaged boy was pulled from the current off Crescent Beach Wednesday afternoon. “It was a good ending,” Susan Potzold said. “I went back to see the lifeguards after… and they said he definitely was very distressed when they plucked him out of the water.” Potzold said she and her husband had been at the beach for about two hours when she noticed a woman “pointing frantically at this kid that was locked in the current… really struggling.” The teen was trying to swim to shore from a sandbar near the pier as the tide was coming in, she said. When Potzold realized someone was in trouble, she ran to the swimming pool to alert lifeguards, while a third woman flagged down a passing kayaker. The lifeguards were “very quick” to react, she said. “I said (to them), ‘it doesn’t look good, it looks to me like he’s in trouble.’ Because those currents are notorious, they didn’t waste a lot of time.” The lifeguards shut down the pool and signalled to the beach patrol crew that they needed to get their boat in the water. Shortly after, the swimmer was safe. Potzold said while she is relieved by the “so nice” ending to the situation, it serves as a reminder to parents and others of the unforgiving strength of the currents. The event was among at least four local water-related emergencies this week. Crescent Beach Coast Guard Auxiliary members responded to calls on Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday, the team’s Sig Kristensen said. All of those also ended well. Sunday’s call came from two commercial fishermen who reported their aluminum skiff had broken down and one of the men was having chest pains. Rescue response was complicated by the

U.S. Coast Guard – including a Dolphin helicopter and rescue swimmer – Washington State Fisheries Department and two teams of Canadian CGA were involved in locating and evacuating the 39-year-old man and his 52-year-old uncle. Saturday, the team responded to a report of an overturned sailboat and two people in the water. The boat, which was capsized around 4:30 p.m. by a gust of wind, was righted by the time the crew arrived. The dunked pair had managed to get themselves out of the water, Kristensen said. Tuesday afternoon, the local crew was tasked to White Rock’s West Beach, where a dropped 911 call had alerted to someone in the water. It turned out that a nine-year-old had suffered an epileptic seizure while wading with her 13-year-old sister. Paramedics at the scene described the older sister as a “guardian angel,” and credited her with saving her sibling. The older sister told Peace Arch News her sibling has suffered similar seizures her whole life. They typically happen after a lot of activity or excitement, she said. While “a little scared” by what happened, she knew what to do, she said.

Communications are being reviewed continuously: Ferguson  from page 1 job primarily to support and facilitate both Fraser Health’s order and Epcor’s existing emergency plan. “Our responsibility as a city is to ensure that Fraser Health and Epcor are doing their job,” Ferguson said, following a press conference Wednesday. Lemire added that he and other city officials are meeting three to four times daily with Epcor and Fraser Health, and that “the pretty limited resources” of city workers were focused on assisting Epcor in draining the Merklin reservoirs and making sure permits for all work and related testing were in place. Brodkin said it is important to remember that in the initial stages of the crisis, and through last weekend, testing had shown only one positive result for a low level of E. coli in one location. It was only on Monday that three tests – one at the Merklin low reservoir, one at Peace Arch Hos-

pital and one south of the Merklin reservoirs – indicated the problem was more severe. The reservoir reading peaked at two counts in 100 ml for E. coli. “Given the level of coliform found on (last) Friday evening, I feel notification was adequate,” she said. “But some residents feel it was not adequate,” she noted, adding that she may recommend Epcor modify its communications strategy in future.

Brodkin added that door-to-door notification of residents was discussed with Epcor. “They said it would take 250 people to go door-to-door and it would take six hours,” she said. “They could not find the people to do this, but for the future we may be looking at groups who would be able to help – can Telus do it, or can the Boy Scouts do it?” McLean said he had received critical feedback from residents.

“There are concerns about residents who are shut-ins and may be stranded in their homes,” he said, noting the school board was also not informed, although teachers and staff are already back in city schools preparing for fall classes. Sinclair said the boil-water advisory is of particular personal concern since she is “immune-suppressed” due to medication she is receiving for chronic arthritis. “The first thing I would have

Boil-water advisory continues into weekend Nearly a week after E. coli was discovered in White Rock’s drinking water, the source of the contamination remains a mystery. As a result, the boil-water advisory continues, and it’s expected to remain in place at least through the weekend, Epcor, Fraser Health and city officials announced Wednesday afternoon. Epcor’s David Rector told reporters that draining of the mural-decorated Merklin 2 reservoir found no evidence of contamination.

“There was nothing that would indicate a potential source of intrusion,” Rector said. Officials are looking at the possibility a mouse or bird got into the system, however, as the reservoir’s drainage pipes are 18 inches wide, any such creature would have been flushed out with the water into the sanitary sewage system, Rector said. “All of us would like to find the smoking gun,” Rector said, while acknowledging it is possible the specific source of contamination may never be found.

done after getting home from a flight was take a drink of water,” she said. “I’m lucky enough to have a mother who phoned me.” But she is concerned other residents who have health issues and may not have seen or heard reports of the advisory through media. “E. coli is not something you fool around with,” she said. “Why didn’t we implement our emergency plan? Quite apart from the health concerns, it would have been a good exercise in using the plan.” Ferguson is adamant that the matter, while disturbing, is in hand and being dealt with effectively. “We are committed to the safety of residents in this community,” she said. “Communications are being reviewed on a continual basis between Chief Lemire and his staff and Epcor and Fraser Health. “I completely understand how upsetting this is to residents. We’re optimistic that (service) will be back to normal as soon as possible.”

Police will be vigilant in efforts to curb the activity, Fletcher said last month, noting that while education is a focus, $60 tickets may also be issued. But Ferguson said last week that White Rock RCMP haven’t steppedup enforcement. “I think what the RCMP were doing was being preventative, however, they have had no proliferation of longboarding or skateboarding, so they haven’t had to do anything more than they’ve been doing as far as enforcement goes,” she told ❝I could Peace Arch News. easily be House said he has dismissed as been stopped by a stupid kid.❞ police officers for longboarding, while Kyle Grant protest organizer rally organizer and local Grade 12 student Kyle Grant said he has a friend whose longboard was confiscated.

We have to ensure the safety of our residents.” When asked why longboarding is treated differently than cycling, Ferguson said bikes have brakes, whereas longboards rely on physical maneuvering to stop.

The protestors asked if they would be allowed to use bike lanes that Ferguson said are planned for Thrift and Roper avenues. Grant noted many of them don’t have driver’s licences, and use longboarding as an environmentally friendly mode of transportation. The demonstrators also questioned why the bylaw has remained the same since 1999, when longboarding technology has improved since then, making it easier and safer to stop. Ferguson encouraged the protestors to appear before council as a delegation with some positive suggestions for longboarding in the city. “I could easily be dismissed as a stupid kid,” Grant said, to which Ferguson responded that it is unfair to discredit council and their openness to hear from the public.

The kindness of strangers

O

ur reliance on one another is unequivocal. While as individuals we provide certain skills and learned knowledge to help us along the way, we rely on others for expertise, for tasks, for sustenance, for safety, for news… This was certainly clear last weekend in White Rock, after it was revealed E. coli had been discovered in the city’s untreated well water. Once the decision was made to issue a boil-water advisory late Friday night, it was up to others to disseminate the information to ensure each and every person affected heard the news, before it was too late. Although there have been no reported illnesses (as of this writing), some feel the communication was lacking – especially considering the city’s tiny size, just 5.28 sq. km. Many report finding out too late, long after potentially consuming life-threatening bacteria. And they want answers. The answers they receive, unfortunately, are tainted by being reliant in the skills and knowledge of others. Were mistakes made? Are the right people making the right decisions? Is the science accurate? We’re told chlorination would solve the problem, yet many have expressed health concerns over chlorine. Who’s right? Or, more likely, who’s more right? The same community has been in the midst of a peculiar debate this summer over the safety of radio waves, after it was announced Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are being transmitted by Tourism White Rock. While some embrace the technology and free Internet access, others argue that regardless of Wi-Fi’s global acceptance, it is unhealthy, with its dangers soon to be exposed. Another debate taking place here is about the safety of suntanning. We also hear conflicting views on the best way to dispose of our garbage. And product recall notices are commonplace, and too often sent long after the danger periods have passed. While there is little the individual can do to guarantee supposed “facts” are indeed factual, the situation is not without hope. Sure, we’re at risk of becoming a society of cynics, but there’s nothing wrong with healthily doubting all information and their sources. Expiration dates? Don’t believe ‘em. Side-effect warnings? Trust they’re likely far from complete. And the next time you hear of a potential danger in your area? Pass on the information. Leave it to your neighbours whether to believe you.

yes 78% no 22% 76 responding it brings back terrific memories to me because I was born & bred on a similar place. I often wish I could pop in… Reading on, my chuckles returned, as the letter offers parental advice, frustrations of aging and commentary on a wedding where guests were advised to speak carefully. “Maybe I’m a lecherous type – but she was in the family way anyway – and what does it matter where you enjoy your first night after marriage, providing the bed springs don’t give in.” (Reporter’s note: Ick.) I still have letters from my dad’s mum. Of the half-dozen or so from my grandma, the earliest is dated 1981. None of them approach my grandfather’s letter in length or personality, but I treasure them no less. Re-reading them, I regret that the exchange tapered off; that I never thought to communicate similarly with my other grandparents. I’m sure the connection those letters sparked had much to do with the impact I felt when my grandma died. They made her real to me. My other grandparents had all died years before. But until last week, she was the only one I had cried for. I’d only met my mom’s dad once, when I was seven. Last week, reading his letter, he was suddenly real, too. An email, I’m sure, would not have evoked the same response. Technology may have made it more convenient to keep in touch, but it will never hold a candle to a handwritten letter. “ttfn” Tracy Holmes is a Peace Arch News reporter.

Not high on MLA Hogg Editor Re: Voice of reason could be at risk, Aug. 20 editorial. Quite the contrary, voice of reason, the people, have spoken. MLA Gordon Hogg (Surrey-White Rock) has done nothing but bow to Premier Gordon Campbell’s every command, and he and his Liberal cohorts are all directly responsible for the total destruction of B.C. The only B.C. Liberal who did his job and represented the people was Paul Nettleton, and we all know what happened to him. To watch Hogg in the legislature, gazing up at Campbell’s back in awe, is enough to make the taxpayers vomit. Hogg was one of the top votegetters in our anti-HST initiative petition. Congratulations, Mr. Hogg. Well deserved. He did nothing for the children’s

ministry, a global disgrace, for no good reason. We continue to have no transit and was demoted to Act Now BC and paid his to get us to work early in the morning or home after bars/ huge salary, expenses and entertainment close at night. pension – which he voted for himself – to do a ‘job’ a He fell on his own sword to cover for his god professional trainer would have done for far less. and mentor Gordon Campbell, regarding Bill He spent several photoBennett.

Gas rises higher here Editor: Why are we getting it stuck to us here on the Peninsula for gas prices? It is more than strange all of our gas stations are setting the same price, which, coincidentally are higher than anywhere else in the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island and Whistler. There, they are all lower – up to 10 cents a litre lower. The gas prices have been down for a long time now, and in July alone our prices went up even though oil became cheaper per barrel. It’s not just the taxes, folks, because we’ve all been faced with the tax increases, but the other areas have not had their prices manipulated upward like the Semiahmoo Peninsula has. What gives? Across the border at Costco, I pay 75 cents US vs. $1.196 Cdn here – $25 a tank less. Bill Phelps, Surrey

Take a few minutes to ensure your neighbours are informed of the situation – as it could save someone’s life.a Randy Sigouin

On notice Editor: Re: Slow boil over water warning, Aug. 25. We were on holidays last week and returned Friday evening. On Saturday, we went about our normal routine, which included drinking the wonderful water we enjoy here in White Rock. On weekends, we rarely watch TV or turn on the radio. We did not leave the house Saturday. The fact that a boil-water advisory was in place was unknown to us, so we spent the day drinking contaminated water. Sunday morning, on a whim, I suggested we watch the BCTV morning news – and much to our horror there was a brief news story about the boil-water advisory. After hearing this story, I started going door-to-door to inform my neighbours of this danger. Much to my surprise, all eight of those I spoke to knew of the advisory. Most had received text messages from friends around the Lower Mainland. My family and I are lucky we did not get very sick from drinking the contaminated water. I was upset to learn Epcor felt their South Surrey customers deserved hand-delivered notices about this potentially deadly situation, but not all White Rock customers. Wednesday morning, when I opened the Peace Arch News, lo and behold there was a bright yellow boil-water advisory notice dated Aug. 20. The fact Epcor would send out this notice five days after the initial advisory made my blood boil. I feel all of Epcor’s customers deserved hand-delivered letters to alert us to this potentially deadly situation, particularly given that White Rock has many seniors who have no access to emails or text messages, and who rarely get out. I also have a suggestion for my neighbours. When you receive important information regarding a

Randy Sigouin, White Rock Q Epcor says a discussion will have to be held about what happened, what they did and what they can do better. We came back from a vacation on Saturday evening. Entering White Rock by bus, we didn’t notice a sign on Johnston Road. We didn’t know anything about the contamination of the water. We didn’t find a note from Epcor in our mailbox and they didn’t leave a message on our machine! How were we supposed to know? We only found out late at night after a friend phoned us, but that was after we’d used the water already. Having a bad immune system, it really got me worried. I guess I was lucky, I didn’t get sick. So, Epcor, you can do better. Renate van der Zande, White Rock Q An open letter to White Rock Mayor Catherine Ferguson and Epcor. If this had been a serious health issue – as in a full-on outbreak of lethal proportions like Walkerton – your communication plan would get a D for “disastrous.” We live two blocks from city hall, five blocks from the Epcor office

and walk the streets daily, and we knew nothing about the outbreak until hearing about it on national news Monday morning. Placing signs on the boundaries of White Rock presumed people left town and would enter on those routes; we didn’t. An email network presumes everyone is online and is using it daily; many, like us, don’t. Finally, when I got to the Epcor website, messaging was incomplete, unclear and old. I still don’t know if I can safely give my pet tap water. What could you have done differently? Ensure signage is placed in prominent locations within city boundaries and faces traffic flow in all directions. Use mobile car-mounted loudspeakers. Most important, direct contact is best. Photocopy enough notices to handdeliver to all residences, and hand out in high-traffic locations within hours of the emergency. You can hire crews from a temp agency, or service groups might volunteer to help. Next time, we may not be so lucky. Glenda Bartosh, White Rock

Questions pour in Who’s watching Epcor? Not the city. Based on its response, the city takes no responsibility for the safety of its citizens and relies fully on a private company. If you review Epcor’s annual report,

they were to develop an emergency response plan. Where is it? Are they doing the required maintenance, and to what standards? A system such as White Rock’s needs the highest levels of preventative maintenance, as it is an untreated system. Are they upgrading and renewing the system to ensure its integrity and its ability to deliver safe water? What are they doing to address the elevated levels of arsenic? Their report talks about it, but they indicate no plans to address it. Maybe it’s time for the city to pay attention and review operations to ensure safety of the residents. Or stock a large supply of “boil-water advisory” signs for the next events. The city must be held accountable, as this event raises serious questions regarding emergency preparedness. It should serve as a wake-up call. R. Emanuels, White Rock Q Is White Rock about to be part of Surrey’s water supply? Was the water contaminated on the days before the last test? Should we have been alerted about the E. coli mid-week? I know that alarms must have gone off somewhere in the system. Not all people watch the late-night news or have a computer to read the paper or see the sign at 16 and 152. The warning system needs a checkup. Wayne Conrad Serbu, White Rock

Vehicle shot, man charged A 24-year-old Surrey man has been charged in connection with a report a man shot a vehicle and uttered threats. Police responded to the area of 24 Avenue and 164 Street around 8:30 a.m. Saturday (Aug. 21), Cpl. Marc Searle said Wednesday. When officers arrived, however, the shooter was gone. Investigation led police to a motel in the 800-block of 160 Street – where residents report hearing of a substantial police presence – and then to a third, unidentified location, where one man was taken into custody.

BOIL WATER ADVISORY (BWA) REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR WHITE ROCK & SOME SOUTH SURREY RESIDENTS – SYSTEM FLUSHING UNDERWAY August 27, 2010 Starting the evening of Thursday, August 26, EPCOR began flushing the distribution system using water from the disinfected Merklin Low Reservoir. This water is slightly chlorinated as part of the current cleaning process. As with any flushing program, customers can expect water discolouration as well as the potential for noticeable particles. Also in this case, a slight chlorine odour may be present. These are aesthetic issues, not health concerns. Customers are advised to continue following the boil water instructions listed below until further notice. Boiling will ensure your water is safe to use and remove any chlorine odour. To facilitate flushing of the system, EPCOR asks that residents reduce their outdoor water use. As a public health precaution, EPCOR and the Fraser Health Authority are advising residents in the City of White Rock to continue to boil their drinking water for at least one minute before drinking. This precautionary measure should be followed until further notice. The health authority advises that there were no reports of illnesses related to water quality when the boil water notice was issued. There has also been nothing since then to suggest an outbreak of illness due to this event. EPCOR continues to work on confirming the source of E. coli. The work underway includes cleaning and inspection of all three system reservoirs, extensive sampling and flushing of the water distribution system. Update: Aug. 23 & 24 • Merklin Low Reservoir drained so that EPCOR could physically inspect it for the presence of a source of E. Coli. • Reservoir found to be structurally sound and nothing found to suggest an "intrusion" by a small animal of some kind. • E. Coli detected in three water samples taken from the reservoir as it was being drained. Aug. 25 • •

Refilling of Merklin Low Reservoir begins (it will take approximately 15 hours to complete this procedure). After the reservoir has been re-filled, water sampling of the reservoir will occur.

Once the Merklin Low Reservoir is back in service, the same procedures will be repeated for the Merklin Tall Reservoir and the Roper Site Reservoir. EPCOR continues to work around the clock, along with Fraser Health and the City of White Rock, to restore White Rock's drinking water system. Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation. What should I do? As we continue to work on the system, residents and businesses should take steps to prepare for the continuation of the Boil Water Advisory through the weekend. This includes: • • • • • •

Boiling water for at least one minute at a full boil before drinking the water. Boiled water should be used for hand washing dishes, for washing vegetables or for anything else you eat or drink. Ice cubes should not be used unless they have been made with boiled water. Boiled water should also be used for brushing teeth and cleaning dentures. Your tap water remains safe for washing clothes and bathing. Reduce outdoor watering to facilitate flushing program.

Updates and contact information EPCOR is working closely with Fraser Health and we will continue to keep you informed of developments as they unfold. Residents with general questions are encouraged to visit www.epcor.ca/whiterock or call our info line at 604536-6112. The recorded message at this number is updated regularly as new information becomes available. People with health concerns should contact their doctor or call the HealthLinkBC at 8-1-1, seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Group of women train for race in benefit of Canuck Place

Adventures in fundraising for children Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

W

hat began as a twoperson effort in last year’s Adventure Challenge has grown into a solid team of seven, after more Peninsula women caught wind of the September fundraiser and jumped onboard. Fitness Town Freakettes – comprising five South Surrey mothers and two other friends – will kayak four kilometres, bike 20 km and run 5 km Sept. 11 in North Vancouver’s Deep Cove. The group has been training over the last year for the event, which benefits Canuck Place and its palliative and respite care services for sick children and their families. Melanie Berezan decided to take part after learning about the race through past participant Esther Peverley, whose children go to the same school as her own. “I heard about Adventure Challenge from her last year, when she did it,” said ❝It’s not a Berezan, an depressing place, avid runner it’s just a place who has that provides so six halfmarathons much fun.❞ under her Melanie Berezan belt. “That’s my passion – to try new things and have fun. “I’m excited about the challenge.” But it was the prospect of raising money for children that was the biggest draw for the mother-offour. “I just love the idea of being part of a team and helping kids. It just reinforces the fact we’re all in this together.” The cause is especially meaningful for Berezan, whose daughter was taken to BC Children’s Hospital with a fever a few days after being born. She recalls being unable to hold and comfort her newborn, who was hooked up to an array of equipment. “In the four or five days that she was in there it was so traumatic.” Berezan said she was shocked to walk outside the hospital and see numerous motorhomes in the back parking lot, where some families stay while their children receive medical care. “I was at the hospital for a few days, and (seeing the

usually associated with stress and trepidation, Berezan said she was surprised to learn from Peverley – a Canuck Place volunteer – that the Vancouver hospice has a joyful environment. “It’s not a depressing place, it’s just a place that provides so much fun.” Peverley said everyone at Canuck Place – located in a 100-year-old, 16,000-square-foot Shaughnessy mansion donated to the city by Elisabeth Wlosinski in 1991 – has a “fantastic outlook,” and it’s hard not to be absorbed by the upbeat energy. “I try to explain to people, 95 per cent of the time you go into the

hospice and it’s happy,” she said, noting family volunteers such as herself interact with sick children and their siblings by playing video games, having water fights and going on field trips. “It’s a very positive, happy, fun place.” Peverley said Canuck Place is mostly volunteer-run, and 65 per cent of its funding comes from donations – a fact Berezan was shocked to learn. “I was really blown away – I didn’t know that.” To contribute to its operations, the Freakettes are raising $1,000 each – the minimum required to participate in Adventure

Challenge. Already, Fitness Town and the group’s trainer, Dai Manuel –a fellow parent at Rosemary Heights Elementary – are sponsoring the team, and have offered to pay for each members’ $50 registration fee. Berezan said they are now looking for outside donations, which can be made at adventurechallenge.ca “No amount is too small – we’d be grateful for anything,” she said, noting people are also encouraged to come out the day of the event and cheer them on. “We could use all the help we could get.”

Clearing the air on secondhand smoke concerns Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Issues around smokefree housing will be the focus of two upcoming presentations at Semiahmoo Library, 1815 152 St. The Sept. 16 and 22 sessions are part of an effort to clear the air on how to address the health issue, organizers say. “We will be talking about how we can help people with this movement and why this is a movement,” said Rose Marie Borutski. Borutski, a resident of Kiwanis Park Place, is among tenants who filed a human-rights complaint that alleged discrimination based on physical disability due to secondhand smoke in subsidized suites at the 12850 26 Ave. complex. The matter, originally scheduled for a 10-day tribunal hearing, went to a settlement meeting Aug. 18. Borutski said a gag order prevents her from sharing details ❝This is last a public of week’s issue. It’s meeting. She also huge.❞ Rose Marie declined to Borutski disclose if the matter was resolved. Representatives of Crescent Housing Society, which operates Kiwanis Park Place, also refused to comment. However, no further meetings to discuss the issue are scheduled. Borutski said the library presentations will cover “anything you want to know about drifting secondhand smoke in multi-unit dwellings… what we’ve been going through as a group and what other people have been going through.” “We will be showing people what’s possible and how to go about it.” The Sept. 16 presentation is set for 7-9 p.m.; Sept. 22, it is scheduled from 1-3 p.m. Borutski hopes to also take the presentation to libraries and community centres in other areas. “This is a public issue. It’s huge,” Borutski said. “There’s lots of information people need to know.” For more information, Borutski may be reached at socionik@ yahoo.ca

Rose Marie Borutski and other residents of Kiwanis Park Place plan to share what they’ve learned about dealing with drifting secondhand smoke through community presentations, starting with two next month at Semiahmoo Library. Brian Giebelhaus photo

Fewer gamblers play the ponies. Falling racetrack revenues translate into lower purses. And less money to attract owners, jockeys, breeders and trainers – not to mention feed and maintain the horses. The woes of the horse racing industry point to one high-stakes possibility. Drivers who now race standardbred racehorses at Cloverdale’s Fraser Downs track and jockeys who ride thoroughbreds at Vancouver’s Hastings Park could both end up at the same facility. If the industry consolidates at a single Metro Vancouver track, the outcome amounts to a double-or-nothing bet for Cloverdale – where several hundred jobs hang in the balance – as well as for horse-related businesses in Surrey and Langley. Such a move would eliminate the lease payment to either the City of Surrey or Vancouver for the track that closes. It would also pool all the betters and Howard Blank support staff in one locavice-president tion, end the duplication of marketing and other expenses and bring other economies of scale. A spokesperson for Rich Coleman, the minister responsible for gaming, confirmed Tuesday consolidation of both racing styles at a single dual-purpose track is one of the options being weighed by a government-appointed management committee charged with finding solutions to stabilize racing. But Howard Blank, vice-president of media and entertainment for Great Canadian Gaming Corp., which owns both Fraser Downs and Hastings Park, denied

The ministry responsible for gaming is looking into merging Fraser Downs and Hastings Park into one horse racing facility. the company is pursuing consolidation. He said Great Canadian would only proceed with consolidation “if the committee feels it’s the most viable option.” “We don’t have that scenario in play,” he said. “We are committed to both. This is not the closing of one and consolidating.” The company wouldn’t have spent millions renovating both sites in recent years if that was the plan, he said. Blank also hotly denied backstretch speculation Great Canadian is laying the groundwork for an end to harness racing in B.C. The company this month announced it’s slashing more than a third of the race days at Fraser Downs this fall and temporarily cancelling the 2011 race slate pending further decisions. The move stoked fears the end is near. “It’s not true,” Blank said. “We will announce our racing schedule for the winter and spring at Fraser Downs very quickly. We will be racing.” The key difference, he said, is the two tracks won’t run racing seasons that overlap and eat into each other’s take. Fully enclosed Fraser Downs will race in the colder months from fall through spring, leaving Hastings Park – which has outdoor bleachers – to take over through the summer. Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce executive director Bill

Reid said he believes an industry consolidation at a single track is very much in the cards. And although there’s pressure in Vancouver for more parkland in the vicinity of Hastings Park, he expects a concerted battle from forces who want the Vancouver track and not Cloverdale to emerge the survivor. “It will take some lobbying,” said Reid, a former Social Credit government minister. He argues several factors weigh in favour of Fraser Downs. It would cost much more to renovate Hastings to accommodate standardbreds than to modify Cloverdale for thoroughbreds, he said. Thoroughbreds at Hastings race a full mile compared to the 5/8 mile harness racing course at Fraser Downs. Lower land values in Surrey relative to Vancouver are also a factor, as is the ease of parking. Horses are already based in Surrey and Langley, he noted, so carting them to Vancouver daily would make much less sense. “We have the community for it,” he said. “Vancouver doesn’t.” Reid said the “supercasino” the goverment plans to build at GM Place stadium will drain gamblers from Hastings Park. “It won’t be viable for a casino at any size to be anywhere within that range,” he predicted. “Hastings Park Casino and Racetrack’s days are numbered anyway.”

Fraser River sockeye running for record return “The 2010 return is fabulous,” she said. “But we don’t know

Jeff Nagel Black Press

Fraser River sockeye salmon are returning in numbers not seen for nearly a century. The Pacific Salmon Commission dramatically upgraded its estimate of the incoming run Tuesday, pegging the total number of Fraser-bound sockeye as high as 25 million – more than double the pre-season forecast of 11 million. That makes it the largest sockeye run since 1913. This is the first time in four years commercial fishermen have been allowed to catch Fraser sockeye. Disturbingly low returns of fewer than two million sockeye in each of the last two years prompted the federal government last year to appoint a judicial inquiry to probe the decline. At its Tuesday meeting, the salmon commission estimated laterun sockeye will number a huge 17.2 million, dramatically driving up the total run size. “All the populations seem to be doing better than forecast,” Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) B.C. Interior area director Barry Rosenberger said. “This is the new record,” he said, adding their estimates could climb higher still. A single test fishing seine boat hauled in 85,000 fish in six sets on Tuesday. Fishermen have now caught more than five million sockeye, while at least six million have been allowed to continue upriver. It’s not clear why this year’s run has come back so strongly. Better marine condi-

why there was a decline last year and a boost in the numbers this year.”

Delta Richmond-East MP John Cummins called the huge return

a “mystery” but said the underlying theme of the wild swings in the stock

is that DFO is unable to predict or account for the changes.

Deckhand Sandra Pinette sorts through sockeye catch. tions and more food for the salmon during their stint in salt water is one theory. But biologists caution one year’s strong return is no proof of a lasting rebound. “What we have this year is an exceptionally good return of the last thriving lineage,” said researcher Alexandra Morton. “This is not a rebound.” This year was expected to be the peak of the four-year sockeye cycle, with much lower returns projected in the next two years, based on the number of adults that previously spawned. “The young of last year’s feeble return are in the lakes and awaiting their turn,” Morton said. “If they suffer the fate of their parents they are extinguished.” She said this year’s huge run is a message that a broader turnaround is possible, a “reminder of what this fish can do.” The trend in sockeye returns has been down since at least the early 1990s. Cohen Commission spokesperson Carla Shore said this year’s run will factor into the inquiry’s work but doesn’t change its mandate or the big questions to be answered.

During the changeover from grass to carpet to allow year-round play, a long-hidden garbage dump was uncovered, costing $26,000 to remove. Although justifiably proud of all the club has brought to White Rock, it is not content to rest on its laurels. Current challenges include devising strategies to attract younger members, and to set up a school program. Judging by its first 75 years, it’ll find a way to succeed.

Coastal Winemakers

Voted #1 on the Peninsula for 10 years in a row!

Believe it or not the start of the holiday season is just around the corner, and it is not too early to start your Christmas wine. Whether you’re new to the winemaking experience or have been doing it for years, there’s no better place to get started than at Coastal Winemakers at 2546 King George Blvd. Voted “Best on the Peninsula” for the 10th year in a row, Coastal Winemakers combines the ambience of a Bert & Val Moritz neighbourhood boutique winery with intricate workings that make up the wine-making facility, producing top quality wine in all price ranges. The friendly and knowledgeable staff will help you select your wine – everything from red, white, dry and sweet – according to your taste and budget. After your juice is mixed, you sprinkle in the yeast which starts the fermentation process, and a few weeks later your wine is ready to be bottled, corked, shrink-wrapped and labelled. The staff will happily provide tips and advice about the aging process for your wine, to ensure you get the maximum enjoyment out of your purchase. Owners Bert & Valerie Moritz are proud to be producing such high-quality and delicious wine for residents of the Peninsula, and say that the winemaking lifestyle is really catching on. “Wine has come so far in the past 18 to 20 years, it’s really quite remarkable,” she said. “We produce some beautiful wine.” It’s no surprise the wine that comes out of Coastal Winemakers is of the highest quality – it’s main supplier of wine kits, Winexpert, is not only the largest wine kit producer in the world, but is also a winner of 267 medals at the 2009 International Amateur Wine Competition hosted by WineMaker Magazine. Even if you’re not in need of a new batch of tasty wine, Coastal Winemakers has a gift shop full of wine-themed items, such as dripless decanters, aerators, including the popular Vinturri, vacuum bottle stoppers and a variety of wine glasses including the beautiful Eisch brand breathable glasses from Germany – perfect gift ideas for wine lovers. Owning a business in White Rock/South Surrey has special meaning for Bert who has called this area home all his life and owning Coastal Winemakers is a wonderful experience. Because winemaking is such a happy hobby, many new friendships have blossomed between customers and the staff. In appreciation for all of their loyal clients, Bert & Val are offering $15 off your next order of wine or a wooden crate for each person you refer who orders their first premium wine kit. The new client will also receive a free gift. So for a fun, unique and rewarding experience, visit Coastal Winemakers and see for yourself what makes them the best on the Peninsula. “Love your wine – we guarantee it!”

Always the Best Value In Town!

Deals World Peninsula residents looking for a great deal on top quality merchandise have been flocking to Deals World in White Rock for the past 17 years. Locally owned and operated, Deals World is a true one-stop shop for everything you need for your home. Furniture, food, clothing, pet supplies, toys, candles, health and beauty needs – the list goes on and on. Joanne With back to school just around the corner, Deals World is your best bet for a huge range of school supplies, as well as fall fashions and new home decor and furnishings. The popular store has a constant turnover of inventory – you never know what new items at discount prices you will find at Deals World. And according to manager Michelle Young, many customers visit the store on a weekly basis in hot pursuit of the latest shipment of brand name merchandise. As the only liquidation-type store on the Peninsula, you can often find things at Deals World that you can’t find anywhere else. Shipments of merchandise come from all over the Lower Mainland, Eastern Canada and the U.S., and because they’re not a “big box” store, they are often able to specially order items for their customers. Although the staff at Deals World is on a constant mission to find the best deal, they’re careful not to sacrifice the quality of merchandise they stock, and strive to provide a wide variety of current styles and trends to appeal to a wide range of customers. The owners and staff of the family-run business are also grateful to have been providing such great deals to their customers for so many years. Despite increased development in the White Rock/South Surrey area which has seen the arrival of several big name stores, Deals World still strives to uphold its smalltown feel, which reflects the atmosphere of the community. The store’s dedication to quality, variety and value has earned it many loyal customers over the years, many of whom have been shopping at Deals World since they first opened their doors more than 17 years ago, and have evolved from customers to good friends. So if you’re in the mood for a treasure hunt, or just want to check out what new and exciting items are in stock, visit Deals World at 1350 Johnston Road for an amazing selection of everything you need for your home.

Never E’nuff Clothes In the women’s clothing market it is hard to be a grown up. With more and more stores catering to teens, tweens and smaller sizes, there seems to be fewer and fewer options available to the sophisticated woman looking for high-quality, flattering fashion. Enter Never E’nuff Clothes in Peninsula Village. As one of the longest-standing fashion boutiques in the community, Never E’nuff Clothes is your best choice Carole Hecht for all your fashion needs, where you’re sure to find the latest trends at affordable prices. The friendly and knowledgeable staff are dedicated to helping customers find the right clothes to fit their body shape and style, and help them to leave the store feeling their best. “We are here for the women who find most fashion way too young, too cheaply made and too skimpy,” says Carole Hecht, owner of the popular clothing store. “We offer high quality and good value for your money.” Whether you’re looking to add to your daytime work wardrobe, you need something dressy for a special occasion, or you’re seeking out the latest in cruise wear for an upcoming vacation, the selection at Never E’nuff Clothes guarantees you’ll find that perfect stylish addition to your closet and the matching fashion jewelry. With fall just around the corner, the staff at Never E’nuff Clothes are busy stocking the racks for another exciting fashion season. “We are so looking forward to the coming fall fashions,” says Carole. The season is going to be all about suits, jackets and knitwear. Purple continues to be a hot colour. Pair with a brilliant charcoal grey for the latest look. Fabrics like cashmere blends are rich and luxurious – the prints stunning – the prices reasonable. Cardigans are long and flowing and combine well with jeans and straight-leg pants. “Most importantly, everything is geared for easy travel. Pack your basic skirts and pants in black, the little black dress, then put the fun into your travel bag with bright, coloured tops and dresses – and never forget a dash of sequins and the Swarowski crystal jewelry from Myka!” With lines from designers such as Joseph Ribkoff, Vex and Simon Chang, the emphasis is on carrying Canadian merchandise. Among many other things, you will find a very good, well-priced pant line from Montreal, as well as the famous Parkhurst sweaters at Never E’Nuff Clothes. Never E’nuff Clothes has always been heavily involved in the community, from supporting local school events to contributing to the Vintage Affair and participating in the annual Nite of Hope fashion show.

Lens R Us For the very latest in designer frames, contact lenses, fittings and repairs, Lens R Us is your onestop-optical shop. The family-owned and operated business opened it’s doors on the Peninsula just over a year ago, offering a full-service manufacturing lab and wide selection of the best optical products at competitive prices. Raj Sood Lens R Us, located inside the Peninsula Village, one will find an unbeatable variety of high-quality designer and private label frames, lenses, contact lenses, accessories and sunglasses. In addition to offering a wide selection, Lens R Us offers a quick turnaround time on all jobs, from custom-fittings to repairs. Most glasses can be ready in just one day and progressive lenses with detailed work– three to four days. The local optical store’s approach to business is simple, according to owner Raj Sood. “We treat every customer as we would treat a guest in our home,” he says. “And we make sure they leave informed and satisfied with their purchase.” While Lens R Us may be the new kid in town on the Peninsula, the independently-owned chain has been around for more almost two decades, with a location in Langley and another in Newton. Having found that many of his customers were making the trek all the way from the White Rock and South Surrey area to Newton, Raj decided to open another store for their convenience – a move he says he’s glad to have made. “We are thrilled to offer another location in the Peninsula Village. Business is booming in the area and our customers are very appreciative to have us in their own neighbourhood.” With fall just around the corner, there’s no better time to upgrade your eyewear. Lens R Us is currently offering a special promotion: buy one pair of lenses and get the second for 50 per cent off. What are the latest eyewear trends? Retro styles, geek chic, aviators and big chunky frames continue to rock the runway and hallway for back to school. Raj and his team at Lens R Us look forward to meeting new customers and helping them see better in style. “Drop by today for a visit and check out the latest in optical trends and technology.”

DINNER MENU



You don’t need to travel halfway across the globe for a taste of authentic Thai cuisine. Last month Sticky Rice opened its’ doors in South Surrey, offering a large and diverse menu of freshlyprepared Thai entrees, appetizers and desserts in a tastefully-decorated dining establishment. Having heard plenty of praise for the Peninsula’s hottest new asian eatery, I decided to drop by for John Thein lunch to see what all the buzz was about. My taste buds were not disappointed. The soft decor and warm ambience of this new hot spot – located at 3099 152 St. – has proven popular for business professionals grabbing a quick bite on their lunch break for its prompt, friendly service and specials that are easy on the wallet and the waistline. Our party was promptly seated by the restaurant’s manager, John Thein, who went out of his way to make us feel welcome and at ease. He was helpful in explaining their menu, pointing out that every dish is made to order and that all sauces are made fresh. While several of my coworkers optioned for the Pad Thai (one of the restaurant’s signature dishes), I decided to give the Beef Basil Stir-fry with Rice a whirl. Lunch arrived prompt and fresh. The Pad Thai was tastefully presented and my dining companions were in love at first bite. Bean curds, eggs, bean sprouts and house made sauce top a bed of freshlyfried rice noodles. On the side of the dish was a small bowl of crushed peanuts. My stir-fry came sizzling right out of the kitchen – the freshly-sliced, tender strips of beef were adorned with fresh sprigs of basil and a crisp vegetable medley, served with a side of its house speciality – Sticky Rice. Looking around the busy dining room, it was obvious other patrons were also having an enjoyable dining experience. With the elegant crystal chandelier hanging overhead, and soft, soothing music playing in the background, I’d definitely return for a night out on the town with my husband. These days date night seems to always includes our toddler – luckily Sticky Rice offers an affordable children’s menu sure to please even the pickiest little diner.

Pure Centre For Healthy Aging

Dr. Rostvig’s

Pure Centre for Healthy Aging recently opened its doors in South Surrey offering an array of specialty services and skin care products to help men and women turn back the hands of time. The highly-skilled Dr. Rostvig and Dr. Peach, both experienced medical/cosmetic practitioners, along with their team of licensed medical technicians, apply the science of skin rejuvenation with the science of bio-identical hormone replacement and longevity medicine to provide the latest and Tania Miller most effective anti-aging procedures on the Peninsula. At their state of the art clinic, located at Unit 109 15388 24 Ave., skin rejuvenation is achieved using a variety of lasers and technologically-advanced machines, combined with the use of Botox and Hylauronic fillers such as their newest exclusive product – Voluma, a natural, gentle filler specifically developed to restore lost facial volume in the cheeks, cheekbones and chin. “We are the only skin care clinic on the Peninsula to offer this,” says Pure business manager Tania Miller. The unisex clinic also offers Da Vinci Teeth Whitening, Microdermabrasion, Laser Acne treatments, Revlite Laser (for facial rejuvenation), Intense Pulse Light Facials, Refirme skin tightening, Matrix Fractional Laser, Triniti Skin Series (as seen on the hit show The Doctors), Soft Lift (a non invasive face lift done with Botox and fillers), Laser Bio stimulation Hair Rejuvenation, laser hair removal, oxygen facials (better known as the Madonna facial), tattoo removal and much more. Pure’s mantra is taking care of its clients on the inside and out. That’s why the clinic is proud to offer a lifestyle assessment which covers a range of services, from a basic physical examination to a sophisticated genomic testing of hereditary disease. These services can be provided “a la carte” or as part of an extensive personal evaluation For top of the line, effective skin care products, Pure is your one stop skin care shop offering effective acne and wrinkle creams, medical gels, toners, and astringents. Pure also carries top of the line, medical grade skin care, including doctor Rostvig’s own brand compounded next door at Pure Pharmacy. This fall, Pure will be launching its Extreme Makeover Contest, which Tania says is going to be “a huge event.” “We have 20 different businesses involved for this extreme makeover, which will be awarded to one lucky winner. They’ll receive $6,000 worth of services.” The makeover will include a hair cut, colour and style, teeth whitening, full facial rejuvenation, skin care or makeup regime, a professional style assessment and a personal home fitness program. Dr. Rostvig, Dr. Peach and staff invite you to take a tour of Pure and enjoy 20 per cent off any service (some restrictions apply, 20 per cent not valid on Botox and Juvederm or product and may not be combined with any other offer). Call the clinic today at 604-542-7788 for more information or to book a complimentary consultation.

Because a child's vision may change frequently, regular eye and vision care is crucial to a student's classroom success. 60% of children labeled as "problem learners" may actually have undetected vision problems and are sometimes incorrectly diagnosed as having attention-deficit disorder. At Spectrum Optometry children’s eye exams are covered by the BC Medical Service Plan.

Imagine Laser Works

37

Take The Plunge!

Whether you’re looking to Quit Smoking, Lose Weight, or overcome Addiction, Imagine Laserworks on Martin Drive can help you achieve your goals and get on your way to a healthier life. The clinic uses low level laser therapy which is applied to specific acupuncture points on the ears, nose, fingers and wrists depending on the specific problem being treated.

Ralph Semple

Results for patients treated with low level laser therapy have been exceptional. For smokers looking to kick the nicotine habit, Imagine Laserworks has seen up to 94% quit rates, with many clients quitting after just one therapy session. Weight loss clients have also seen a high level success, with laser treatment effectively speeding up metabolism, decreasing appetite, controlling hunger cravings and increasing endorphin levels. Imagine Laserworks also uses low level laser therapy to treat drug and alcohol addiction by minimizing symptoms of withdrawal. Used in combination and nutritional supplements, herbs and exercise – to detoxify and repair the body – laser releases a flow of natural endorphins, creating calm and relaxation. The physical dependence on the abusive substance is then relieved, and symptoms including anxiety, restlessness, fatigue, cramps, vomiting and depression may be eliminated or greatly reduced. While treatments at Imagine Laserworks are not a quick fix, the success of laser therapy will help to relieve a number of withdrawal symptoms that are associated with quitting substance abuse, and will also restore the body’s energy and internal function to stronger levels. To find out more about any of the safe and effective treatments available at one of our 17 Imagine Laserworks Centres in Canada, call the White Rock office at 604-538-2106 and take the first step to feeling great.

Maple Sushi There’s no shortage of places to dine out here on the Peninsula, but for a place with variety and quality, at an affordable price, you’ll want to visit Maple Sushi. Located at 2385 King George Hwy., next door to the Caprice Theatre, Maple Sushi offers a full selection of Japanese cuisine, including sashimi – raw fish – and a wide variety of sushi rolls. But if the thought of eating raw fish makes you Iris Huang a little green around the gills, Maple Sushi also has a vast menu of cooked Japanese items as well, including tempura, noodles and their signature teriyaki dish. “A lot of people think of Japanese food as raw food,” says manager Iris Huang. “But we have a lot of cooked food – even our sushi menu has a lot of cooked rolls.” At Maple Sushi, in addition to a wide variety of menu items, you will find the quality of food to be very high. Their popular California rolls are made with the highest quality of crab meat – unlike some restaurants that use imitation crab meat or pollock, which can lower their cost by half. Some of the fish used in items at Maple Sushi is also flown in from Japan the and East Coast – the ahi tuna, yellowtail and octopus are all flown in fresh three times per week, so you can rest assured you’re getting high quality, genuine fresh food. If you don’t have enough time to dine in at Maple Sushi, they provide free delivery for your convenience. They also offer 10 per cent off your order if you pick it up, as long as it’s $20 or more before taxes. If you’re able to dine-in, visit Maple Sushi for lunch and choose from one of their 15 different lunch boxes. The portions are generous, and the wide selection ensures that you’ll find something to suit your taste – and each one is within $10. Or you can try one of their most popular menu items – the Happy Choice. It’s a make-your-own combo where you can pick out any three items from a list of 30 choices, and includes free Miso soup. Despite being open for just three years on the Peninsula, Iris says the staff at Maple Sushi has already developed friendships with many of its loyal customers. “We feel very fortunate to have opened a business in this neighbourhood,” Iris says. “Our customers help us grow in many ways. They are just like friends of ours.” Whether you’re a sushi connoisseur, or you want to test out something new in the way of Japanese fare, Maple Sushi is the place for fresh, delicious food and great service.

Stay ‘n’ Play

TRAVEL & CRUISES

with Mandate Tours

Mandate Tours is an established BC owned and operated company with 22 years experience specializing in escorted tours for mature adults looking to discover their own backyard and beyond. Our tours offer diverse sightseeing, comfortable accommodations, quality meals and are created to flow at a leisurely pace. Wherever possible, Mandate includes local guides in addition to our own tour guides, for a more detailed look at indigenous traits symbolic of the area. Most meals and all entrance fees are included as are home pick-up and drop-off service within the lower mainland. We have developed a new type of tour package that we are calling Stay ‘n’ Play; this is in addition to our popular coach tours. It’s a tour that stays at one hotel for three or more consecutive nights. The hotel/resort/lodge must meet several criteria. It must be a 3* hotel rating or better, centrally located and have several amenities such as a pool and / or hot tub / sauna. The pricing will always include view rooms. Each Stay ‘n’ Play tour will have at least two sightseeing tours and several meals will be included. When a meal is on your own the tour guide will provide options and help with reservations, where appropriate. During free time there is always something offered as an option and an opportunity to explore an area in greater depth. From cultural activities to soft adventure. From welcome reception to wine and cheese parties. Lazy days, few early morning departures. Relax by the pool in the morning and enjoy sightseeing in the

afternoon. Our Stay ‘n’ Play tour packages create an opportunity for single people to travel within the safety of the group but still have some independence and always fully escorted by a Mandate Tour guide. In the past few years we have been introducing some Stay ‘n’ Play tours such as Santa Fe & Albuquerque, Jasper Park Lodge Spring Fling, Stormwatching at Long Beach, Palm

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Tenor’s star shining bright in Germany Alex Browne

Arts Reporter

The Peninsula’s Lance Ryan as Siegfried.

pera legend Marilyn Horne said it years ago. Singing the praises of White RockSouth Surrey’s own Lance Ryan, she declared “He is Siegfried.” Now undeniably an international opera star himself – so much so that even Canadian companies, notably lacking in prescience, are now bidding years in advance for his services – the tall, blond tenor from the Peninsula has taken a further step in cementing his reputation as the archetypal

version of the hero of Wagner’s cycle Der Ring des Niebelungen. His authoritative performance of Siegfried – honed at various European houses since his debut in the role at Karlsruhe in 2005 – has taken audiences by storm this summer at that bastion of all things Wagnerian, the Bayreuth Festival in Germany. Founded by the composer himself in 1876, and still run by his descendants, the fabled annual festival has long been considered the definitive venue for Wagner’s work, and continues to attract opera devotees and the glitterati of Germany, and the rest of Europe,

to its gala premieres. And while Tancred Dorst, current director of the Ring cycle, has come in for criticism for his staging approach, it seems clear the festival has benefited from the arrival on the scene of an exciting new Siegfried in the person of Ryan. It’s a role even the modest and retiring singer – now hailed as “the heldentenor of the 21st century” – was born to play, but one that few have been willing to tackle because of the demands it places above and beyond vocal quality.  see page 42

Surrey residents crack top 20 in contest

Dancers vie for Canadian crown Alex Browne Arts Reporter

South Surrey’s Nathalie Heath performs with dancing partner Mackenzie Green on CTV’s So You Think You Can Dance Canada, where she and Danielle Gardner (above right) are among the top 20 finalists.

Two Surrey dancers are in the top 20 of the new season of CTV’s So You Think You Can Dance Canada. Nathalie Heath, 23, and Danielle Gardner, 21 – both categorized as ‘contemporary’ dancers – are both in the limelight in season three of the series which will be airing regularly on both CTV and MuchMusic. Heath, who teaches dance, started dancing at age four and began her studies at South Surrey dance studios training in jazz, ballet, modern, musical theatre, street jazz and hiphop. Heath’s professional career has included doubling for Hilary Duff in The Lizzie McGuire Movie and as one of the lead dancers in crooner Michael Buble’s video, Haven’t Met You Yet. The determined Heath, who informed her mother at age five that she “loved the stage,” was picked for So You Think You Can Dance Canada after her third try at auditioning for the show. She says her favourite nondance activities include cooking, meditating, reading fiction and spending time with girlfriends. Gardner, who also teaches

dance, grew up in North Delta and is now a resident of Surrey. She was inspired to take up dance while still a toddler, after seeing her older sister dancing, and has been training virtually ever since. A former student of the Langley Fine Arts School, she has trained with six different studios across B.C. including Move and Modus Operandi in Vancouver and her resume also includes experience in ballet, jazz, lyrical, modern, tap and musical theatre. Her dance career has taken her as far as a world dance competition in Oslo, Norway, and her first brush with fame was an impromptu appearance on Live! With Regis and Kelly in New York, where she so impressed with her stint as go-go dancer that she was brought back for the show’s Relly Awards, in which she was named best go-go dancer of 2007. Next episodes aired will be on CTV Monday, Aug. 30 at 9 p.m. and Tuesday Aug. 31 at 8:30 p.m. Recaps and the top 22 reveal episode will be aired on MuchMusic starting at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 28, and weekly performance and results episodes move to a regular time slot of 5 p.m. on MuchMusic starting Sept. 4.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Weinberger takes bronze at international meet Melissa Smalley Staff Reporter

It only took South Surrey native Richard Weinberger one appearance at an international swim meet to come home with a medal around his neck. Weinberger won bronze in the 10-kilometre open water race at the Pan Pacific swimming championships in Irvine, Calif.

Sunday, bringing Canada’s total medal count for the five-day competition to 11. The Semiahmoo Secondary grad told Peace Arch News that throughout the entire race, he was determined to get a podium finish. “In every race you’re trying to win, but there were a lot of faster and stronger guys than

me there,” Weinberger said. After a slow start from the entire pack of swimmers, Americans Chip Peterson and Francis Crippen – who would go on to win the gold and silver, respectively – shot ahead by 15 to 20 metres, Weinberger said. “That’s when I just really started trucking and working really hard. I didn’t catch up to

them until maybe five-k,” he said. “I led the whole race from there until about 9.7-k. “My strategy was pretty much to go hard for the whole five-k so that it spread out the pack. I knew I’ve got the endurance and they’ve got the speed, and only three other guys could keep up with me.”  see page 54

really well.” Weinberger will soon be returning to Victoria to continue training and will also be starting classes at UVic in September. While he doesn’t have any major swim meets lined up in the near future, his most recent victory has helped him set his sights on the London Olympics in 2012. “The first Olympic trials are next summer, so I’ll be in really good shape for that,” he said.

The Peninsula was well-represented at the B.C. Summer Swim Association provincials in Kamloops last weekend, as more than two dozen medals were won by local swimmers. Members of the White Rock Amateur Swim Association and Crescent Beach Swim Club competed in several events at the Aug. 20-22 meet. From the WRASA, swimmer Emma Mittermaier dominated the girls open category 2, taking gold in the 50metre freestyle – where she also tied a provincial record – as well as gold in the 50m butterfly. She also finished on top of the podium – and set new provincial records – in the 100m freestyle and 100m butterfly. Among the summer division swimmers from WRASA, Katherine Toy took bronze in both 50m and 100m freestyle in girls Division 2. In boys Division 3, James Bogart won bronze in 50m breaststroke, and Michael Milic won gold in 50m breaststroke and 100m individual medley (where he set a new provincial record), as well as silver in 50m backstroke and bronze in 100m freestyle.

Competing in the girls Division 5, Keyana Bjornson won gold in 50m and 100m freestyle, silver in 50m butterfly and 50m freestyle. Michael Dolmat came home with two golds in Division 6 competition – in 100m butterfly and 100m freestyle – as well as silver in 50m butterfly and 50m freestyle, while Kevin Mason took the gold in 50m freestyle. Rounding out the medals for the WRASA in the girls Division 7 category were Valerie Ward, who took gold in 100m backtroke and 100m freestyle and Celine Dempsey, who won silver in 100m backstroke and bronze in 50m freestyle. From the CBSC, Ryan Neapole won gold in the 50m freestyle, silver in the 100m freestyle and bronze in the 100m individual medley. Perrin Finley took silver and bronze in the 50m backstroke and 50m freestyle, respectively and Brenna Short won silver in the 50m breaststroke. Though they didn’t earn medals, CBSC swimmers Katrina Shinkaruk, Hailey Pattenden and Devon Seidel also had a good showing at the provincial meet. -Melissa Smalley

sports Semiahmoo grads on gold medal U20 squad

Canada wins NACRA title Three Peninsula rugby players helped Canada’s U20 squad to a first-place victory at the North American Carribean Rugby Championships in the Bahamas last weekend. Sade Smith, Tia Croteau and Laura Murphy Burke – all Semiahmoo Secondary grads – suited up for the Canadian side’s goldmedal match against the U.S. The second test of the year between the Canada U20s and the U.S. U20s ended with a tight 6-3 win for Canada. Both teams played incredibly physical defence, and vigorously contested the breakdown. Earlier in the week-long tournament, the Canadians opened their time in Bahamas with a 43-0 win over a Caribbean Select side. The Canada U20s continued their winning ways with a 62-0 win over the Cayman Islands. The team scored 31 points in each half to earn the lopsided victory over a feisty Cayman side. Canada took head coach John Long’s pre-game message to heart and played a fabulous, tough and spirited defence against the U.S. for the tournament title Aug. 21. In the end, the game came down to penalty kicks throughout the entire 40 minutes. Both teams headed into halftime with many areas to discuss and tighten up for the second 40 minutes. The U.S. fullback scored first at 44 minutes from a penalty kick inside the 22-metre line. It took some further bashing from Can-

Flyhalf Murphy-Burke coolly collected her kicking tee and delivered a penalty kick deadcentre through the posts. Some shifting in Canada’s backline resulted in Misha Maric being the one under pressure to convert a penalty to Canada with only 10 minutes left and the score knotted at 3-all. Maric, who started the game in the second row and then moved to 8-man when Smith left the field, had a successful attempt about 18 metres from the posts. The Canadians weathered a storm from the U,S. when they had to scrum down again on

Canada was called for an intentional wheel by the assistant referee and a penalty kick was awarded. The American fullback pulled the kick left this time and ended the scoring threat with only two minutes left until full time. There was much celebration from the Canadians at the final whistle as the physical battle could not have been sustained much longer by either team. The NACRA delegation presented a player of the tournament to both teams, with winger Katie McNally taking home the hardware for Canada.
