Window-coverings manufacturer announces move south

140 left jobless as company closes doors Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A South Surrey business with lengthy roots in the Lower Mainland is to cease operations this spring – a decision that includes laying off 140 people. Doreen Decker, a facility manager for Springs Window Fashions LLC, confirmed this week that Abbey Window Coverings, located in Campbell Heights at 19295 25 Ave., will discontinue manufacturing March 23, merging its customer-service operations

with those at Wisconsin-based Springs’ customer-service office in Williamsport, Pa. A brief news release issued Wednesday cites “the current soft conditions in the window-coverings market” as reason for the move; the process will take place “over the next few months.” Abbey was founded in 1978. Springs, which purchased the South Surrey plant in early 2007, also operates facilities in four U.S. states and Mexico. Products currently produced at Abbey are to be manu-

factured in other Springs facilities, Decker said. Employees said that although there have been changes to the plant’s operations over the past year – including elimination last fall of an afternoon shift – news Tuesday morning of the pending closure caught them off-guard. “People were crying,” said one long-term staffer, who asked to remain unidentified for fear of reprimand. “It was a shock... very sad.”

He said employees, many of whom are immigrants, were told the plant will stop taking customer orders on March 18, and that employees will receive eight weeks’ severance pay. While the man was confident his own skill set will serve him well in the search for a new job, he is concerned about the future of some of his fellow workers. “They’re killing 200 people’s livelihood,” he said. “This was really, really a blow to the face to many people.”

Thrill ride for teen plucked from sidelines just before relay

From fan to torchbearer Nick Greenizan Staff Reporter

A quick fast-food breakfast on her way to joining the throngs of spectators at the 2010 Olympic Torch Relay early Tuesday morning turned into a life-changing experience for Sara Groenewegen. Sara, 14, and her family were leaving McDonald’s in South Surrey at 6 a.m., when she was approached by a relay official. “Would either of you like to run with the Olympic torch?” Sara and her younger sister, Melanie, 11, were asked. While Melanie – it turned out – was too young, Sara had little time to mull the offer. The torch was about to leave South Point Exchange Mall, and was due in White Rock a half-hour later. Within minutes, the Elgin Park Secondary student found herself at White Rock Elementary, where she was hastily fit with red Olympic gloves and the same white tracksuit worn by ❝They decided to other torch runners. add one more spot From there, Sara at the last minute, – who is an athlete, herself, as a White just to make Rock Renegade – was somebody’s day.❞ thrust into a quick meeting with other White Rock torchbearers, where she was taught how to hold the flame, how to safely run with it and how to pass it off. “I was actually late for that meeting, because it was all so last-minute,” she said. “It was unbelievable – it all happened so fast. I was… speechless for 10 minutes.”

Sara and Melanie Groenewegen await Sara’s big moment as the surprise final torchbearer on White Rock’s leg of the relay. Sara was told she would run the final 300-metre leg down Marine Drive, taking the torch from Olympian Sarah Evanetz, a swimmer at the ’96 Games in Atlanta, Ga. As Sara was the final runner on Marine Drive, she was told she would be responsible for lighting a large lantern, which would be transported to Peace Arch Park for the continuation of the relay. After a brief “enthusiastic warmup,” the torchbearers hopped into a van and were delivered to various starting locations.

With thousands of onlookers lining the streets, Sara admitted to being a little taken aback – especially considering she didn’t have much in the way of preparation time. “I was so nervous that I could barely even move,” she said. “There were just swarms of people – I saw a lot of people I knew. I made sure to wave to all the little kids.” And then it was all over – an hour and a half after she was first approached. The next day, Sara was still coming to grips with her whirlwind experience – even

It’s been one of the greatest things that has ever happened to me. I’ll never forget it.”

news Southridge student to represent Canada in Lithuania

‘With words, you can move an audience’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

There’s no debate – when it comes to public speaking, Kristine Ramsbottom knows her stuff. And thanks to impressive placement at the recent Canadian National Debate Championships, the Southridge School teen has earned a chance to test her knack for the spoken word on the world stage. “I’m still in shock,” the 17-year-old said Thursday of the win that secured her a spot on the Canadian Senior Debating team that will travel to Lithuania in April. “Worlds has been my goal since Grade 8... my life goal.” Ramsbottom, a Langley resident, clinched a place on the team during competition in Winnipeg last week, where, after events including Parliamentary Debating and Persuasive Speaking, she placed fifth overall amongst 39 competitors. Her best finish in the individual events came in Interpretive Reading, where she finished first after delivering what her coach Jan Holt described as “a dramatic and chill-

The story, set in France during the Second World War, tells of a young girl who locks her brother in a cupboard in the family’s apartment to protect him from arrest by the French police, believing she would be back a few hours later to let him out.

The book, as with everything about the different world wars, “spoke to me,” Ramsbottom said. Being able to successfully convey that passion to a group of people is “the most amazing feeling.” “I just love the fact that with words you can move an entire audience, and I felt that for the very first time when I was at this competition,” Ramsbottom said. Ramsbottom, in Grade 11 at Southridge, said she has enjoyed public speaking ever since kindergarten, when she spoke about pandas. Since joining the school’s debate club in Grade 8, she has focused her passion. Leading up to the national competition, Ramsbottom practised with the University of B.C.’s debate team and an outside coach in addition to twice-weekly sessions with her own school’s debate club. As well, she put in copious additional hours after school, sometimes staying as late as 7 p.m. Mastering the skill does not come easy, Holt said. She described debating as a “labourintensive sport… like intellectual jousting.”

Debating requires the ability to think quickly and argue both sides of an issue effectively. A solid background knowledge of world and current affairs is also critical, along with the ability to find weaknesses in an opponent’s side. Ramsbottom’s prowess in all of the above is not her only skill, Holt noted. The teen’s motivation and work ethic are also “unbelievable,” she said, particularly after the “major blow” dealt to her in Grade 10, when she didn’t qualify for the provincial-level competition. The defeat followed a year in which Ramsbottom made national tryouts, Holt said. “She was able to swallow that one and work harder to come back. That was a major triumph to come back and win the competition,” Holt said. Ramsbottom said word of her national success also marked another unique moment. “For the first time in that competition, I did not know what to say.” The World Individual Debating and Public Speaking Championship takes place April 7-13 in Lithuania.

2010 celebrations

Let the Games begin The Olympic torch relay has come and gone, but there’s still a chance to celebrate the flame in White Rock tonight (Friday).

Specialty knives are inserted into a two-year-old 40-kilogram wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano, honouring a centuries-old Italian tradition.

Olympics spur visit from big cheese group

Italian consortium drops in to say formaggio Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

South Surrey shoppers got a rare look at the opening of a 40-kilogram wheel of ParmigianoReggiano Thursday, when representatives from Italy visited a Grandview Heights grocer. Members of the Parmigiano-Reggiano Consortium – a marketing board that safeguards the authenticity of the brand – made the stop at newly opened Thrifty Foods as part of their visit to the 2010 Games, where it is sponsoring athletes as the official provider to Team Italy. Shoppers who crowded around the two-yearold wheel were told how, under European law, only cheese produced in five Italian provinces can be labelled Parmigiano-Reggiano – a name classified as a protected designation of origin. Members of the consortium – officially called Conzorzio del Formaggio Parmigiano-Reggiano – demonstrated the centuries-old art of

Igino Morini and Giuseppe Alai demonstrate, opening the wheel, which requires the use of five different knives. “To be here to witness this is quite the experience,” said Canadian distributor Lui Bruschetta,

who translated for the Italian visitors. The circumference of the wheel was scored before four of the knives were inserted at different points along the cut. A shorter, almondshaped blade was then worked around the incision to create the necessary pressure for the wheel to split naturally. Once opened, the top half of the approximately $2,000-wheel was brought around for spectators to smell, and chunks were cut off for all to taste. Bruschetta said Thrifty Foods opens its Parmigiano-Reggiano using the same traditional method, rather than resorting to wires or saws. Consortium members now plan to visit the grocer’s Victoria location this weekend, where they will present it with a silver knife – a recognition given to retailers that raise awareness and promote Parmigiano-Reggiano. Only two other such knives have been given in Canada.

CITY NEWS NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING FEBRUARY 17, 2010 OCP Amendment - Large Lot Infill Policy

Brian Giebelhaus photo

Derek Collins, chief of operations at the Douglas border, said every effort is being made to maintain security and efficiency during the 2010 Olympics.

Preparing for Games Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Longer full-access hours and a dedicated “Olympic family” lane are among steps in place at the local border to facilitate travel during the 2010 Winter Games. And while there has been no indication of trouble to come, Canada Border Services Agency officials say they are paying even closer attention to those lining up to cross into the country, just in case. “We would be foolish to assume it’s not a target,” said Derek Collins, chief of operations at the Douglas port. “The government has not increased any level, but we are… on a natural heightened state of vigilance. “We will be prepared to deal with whatever comes our way.” Collins said CBSA has redeployed border officers from across the country to boost staffing at the local ports, enabling all traffic lanes to remain open during extended hours, from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. To avoid delays, travel-

lers are encouraged to cross outside of peak hours, he said. At the Douglas border, one of two Nexus lanes has been dedicated for those with Olympic accreditation. It is not for people who simply have tickets to an event, Collins noted. Collins expects statistics that show a nearly 50 per cent increase in traffic volume over this time last year will likely increase in the coming days then hold steady through the Games. The first week of February, 26,800 vehicles crossed into Canada at the Douglas border. The number of secondary inspections conducted in the coming weeks is also likely to increase, he said. “We’re spending a lot of money to make sure the Games go off safely and securely,” he said. Collins said enthusiasm for the Games is high amongst border personnel, and he is no exception. “I’m a big sports guy and I believe in the Games,” he said. “It’s kind of neat to get a chance to be part of all that.”

opinion Peace Arch News Published at White Rock by Black Press Ltd.

editorial

Haiti heartbreak will endure beyond crisis he celebrity-studded telethons are over. The nightly coverage on the television news has dwindled to a story or two, shuffled over the past few days behind snow updates from Cypress Mountain and security preparations for the Olympics. Scenes of devastation are now already passé; it takes the rescue of someone buried in rubble for more than a week to stir the media’s attention. But the heartbreak of Haiti’s catastrophic earthquake will endure for years. The quake that struck the Caribbean nation Jan. 12 killed more than 200,000 and injured an estimated 300,000 more – a death toll comparable to that wreaked by the December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Long after CNN has pulled its last correspondent from Haiti’s Port-au-Prince capital, the people who survived the disaster will still be burying their dead, they’ll still be digging through the rubble of their homes and businesses, trying to repair their shattered lives and rebuild some semblance of normalcy. Sadly, the odds are stacked against them. Haiti was a ruined country long before the 7.0-magnitude earthquake tore it apart, ravaged by decades of poverty, economic collapse and political misrule, including 33 military coups in 200 years. Despite $5 billion in foreign aid over the past decade, most Haitians still live in squalor, without basics like clean water and sewer lines. For many, education and literacy are a pipe dream. Food is scarce; the country’s agriculture has been stripped by environmental degradation from over-cultivation and deforestation. The search for quake survivors was officially called off on Jan. 23, 11 days after countless lives were changed forever. While it may feel good to drop a few bills into a collection jar at a Semiahmoo Peninsula restaurant, or open up the chequebook after calling a 1-800 phone number – and we can’t help but commend fundraising efforts such as those wrapping up today at Morgan Elementary – it’s important we don’t shut Haiti from our consciousness once we’ve made those selfless acts. Because the money that is pledged now may rebuild homes and infrastructure in the immediate future, but it will take much more to rebuild a country.

Learn the facts, then decide Editor: Re: White Rock tries to rescind trash bids, Feb. 3. Coun. Lynne Sinclair’s motion to rescind a call for garbage collection quotes from the private sector smacks of pro-union protectionism. It’s obvious she – and the councillors that voted in favor of her motion – would rather the public be kept in the dark when it comes to the value they receive for their tax dollars, than have the current collection system held up to real-world financial scrutiny. These councillors need to be reminded they have been elected to manage the city in a fiscally responsible manner. Once all the information needed to make a decision has been made available, they can then go on record as to which option they support. Trying to thwart the process at this stage is a transparent and disgraceful attempt to avoid having to justify their position once all the facts are on the table. Glen Gerow, White Rock

lifestyle; that is, if you enjoy culture more than sports. My eyes may be glued to the TV screen during this time. But then, I realize, that might not be good for my health. I, along with all other seniors, need to exercise and keep active in activities we enjoy, even if that means just socializing. As seniors, we should stay fit and healthy. Seniors would surely benefit by participating in the 2010 BC Seniors Games hosted by Comox Valley and Campbell River from Sep. 15-18. The 2011 BC Seniors Games will be hosted by Nelson, Castlegar and Trail from Aug. 16-20, and the 2012 BC Seniors Games will be hosted by Burnaby from Aug. 21-25. These special seniors games will highlight the positive side of aging and challenge older adults to maintain an active lifestyle long after they retire. Also, it might invigorate other seniors to start practising their youthful sport or arts passion and demonstrate their talents and expertise to the younger generation.

I suggest we keep the Olympic spirit going by supporting and participating in the Seniors Games. I am especially looking forward to the 2012 Seniors Games in Burnaby. How about you? Ingrid Shelton, White Rock

Cancel all the planned towers Editor: A few points to consider for the amendment to the White Rock bylaw to amend the maximum storeys from 21 to 12 in town centre mixed-use zoning. The amendment still paves the way for 21 storeys due to “averaging,” and existing projects will not be cancelled. This is unacceptable. The previous council was voted out because of citizen outcry at unwanted highrises. Just cancel them and amend the bylaw to be consistent with the citizenry’s

Editor: Re: A boulevard by George, Feb. 3. What’s with the name change for King George Highway to King George Boulevard? Does someone in Surrey City Hall have relatives in the printing business, with all the new letterheads and business cards? Or maybe in the sign makers? If they wanted a name change, why not a contest for a better name than that – Semiahmoo Trail, Wayne Gretzky Way, Terry Fox Boulevard, Rick Hansen Trail... Loads of others, I’m sure. Not much mileage out of this change. Bill Cobb, Surrey

Torchbearer Gordon Janzen (right) is proud to have run on the Peninsula.

Community delivers Editor: I had the incredible good fortune to be selected as an Olympic torchbearer, and the even better fortune to get to run in White Rock. (I had the leg that turned from Buena Vista onto Marine Drive). I can’t tell you how excited and moved all the torchbearers were by the enormous and enthusiastic turnout early Tuesday morning.

The Olympics bring out the bright side of humanity and tie communities together better than anything else I can think of. The Peninsula showed that this week. I’m sure Canadians will take home a record haul of medals in the next 20 days, but it feels like we’ve already won. Gordon Janzen, North Vancouver

There is hope for patients Editor: Re: ‘I am really scared,’ Jan. 29. Even when I was told I had a lump in my breast, I couldn’t feel it myself. I was fortunate to have a surgeon who gave me options. And I opted for a “modified radical” procedure. No chemo, no radiation, and here I am 33 years later. There is always hope, and women should not be scared to have themselves checked. That said, in the Peace Arch Hospital mammogram room there is a notice that says some lumps are too deep, and a follow-up ultrasound is recommended. When I commented to my GP that there must be a better way than the mammogram “clamp,” she observed: “Not until a man has to have one.” M.E. Davidson, White Rock

Editor: The long-awaited Vancouver Olympic Winter Games are at our doorsteps. Running from Feb. 12-28, they are followed by the Paralympic Winter Games for athletes with any disability from March 12-21. Are you going to cheer on your favourite venue or sports activity in person or will you watch it on TV? The Olympics make me think of the positive effects of such an undertaking. We will be privileged to watch the top sports stars from around the world – including some from countries we may not even have heard of. Furthermore, the cultural aspects of the Olympics might bring some excitement to our sedentary

wishes. We need arable land and sunlight to be self-sufficient, because we can’t continue “importing” to our city increasingly scarcer resources. We are now on a path to bloody combat because we chase monetary illusions – lower property taxes – instead of health and relationships. City decision-makers, please use the criteria of the path to ethical, sustainable living in your planning. As an individual or member of an organization, ask the four questions: • Take: Can the Earth replace what I take? • Make: Will I cause toxins to seep into earth, air or water? • Break: Will I break the web of life; the biodiversity of flora and fauna? • Stake: Will my choices rob the stake others have in resources to meet their needs – today or in the future? Rebecca Mular, White Rock

Editor: A hearing concerning the death of three farm workers was recently completed. Their deaths should never have happened. The proper equipment could have saved them – for instance, a used school bus having dual wheels on the rear for stability, plus proper seating. Imagine what would happen if a rear tire should blow out on a single-wheel unit. Loss of control. In the matter of proper seating, a used school bus has what is needed. Seatbelts could be added, if not already installed. They save lives. The transportation of a large group of people is no easy task and there is need for proper equipment. Farm work is hard work. These hardworking people are a strong link in our food chain, and a great asset to our community. Give them our best. Frank Ratz, Surrey

A Facebook group has been established in opposition to a Surrey school district proposal to alter the school calendar so that classes would start in midAugust rather than September. The online page, called “Say NO to mandatory summer school,” says: “Surrey school board is planning to make changes that will effect the life of your child. Do you want to lose your summer?” Most of the comments on the page, which as of Thursday had 66 members, object to the suggestion that a portion of the usual summer break be spread out during the school year. A draft 2011-2012 school district calendar shows that instead of having all of July and August off, students would have July and only half of August off, essentially exchanging those summer weeks for two weeks off at the beginning of October. There would be the usual Christmas vacation and two weeks of spring break, which Surrey already implemented this year. Information on the Facebook page indicating students would have all of December and April off is incorrect. (Check http://www. sd36.bc.ca/general/news/2009/ balanced-calendar.html to view

A Facebook group opposing proposed calendar changes has recently been created. the draft calendar). An information package on the matter went out to teachers and parents in December. A notice from the school district notes the current school calendar, with nine or 10 consecutive weeks of summer vacation, was developed more than 100 years ago, mainly to accommodate agricultural needs. “In our 21st century world, many are questioning the current ‘imbalanced calendar’ with its nine or ten weeks of summer vacation and long stretches without significant breaks to pause, decompress and engage in family and other out-of-school activities,” reads the notice. “We also understand that the long sum-

mer gap has a negative impact on learning, particularly for students of poverty. The ‘learning loss’ for these students is notable.” But commenters on the Facebook page are concerned families will lose valuable summer time together. They also argue kids will have to learn in hot, air-conditioned classrooms in August in exchange for time off during rainy weather in October. Another site member believes that while students may require a great deal of review after the long summer break, the problem will only be compounded with three or more breaks throughout the year. There’s also the concern that older students will have a harder time landing summer jobs. Surrey Board of Education chairperson Laurae McNally has said the proposal is far from being a done deal. She also said it could not take effect for at least two years – 2011 at the earliest – and is not budget related. Instead, she said, it’s about kids losing much of what they’ve learned over the lengthy summer break – and about the school district gathering feedback from parents on the balanced calendar concept.

Extra nightly patrols by Transit Police are now being mounted to guard against trouble makers who might tamper with TransLink’s facilities or vehicles during the Olympic Games. Sgt.

Fraser Health balances budget Jeff Nagel Black Press

The Fraser Health Authority will end its financial year in April with a balanced budget, but it’s far from clear whether more cuts will be required in the months ahead. Victoria had previously indicated the authority would get a 5.8 per cent budget increase for 2010. But officials say that depends on how much money the provincial government earmarks for health care when it hands down its new budget after the Olympics are over. Fraser averted what threatened to be a $160-million deficit for 2009-10 by postponing surgeries, cutting grants and programs and restructuring its operations. A variety of psychiatric, detox and residential care beds were closed, and acute care beds occupied by elderly long-term care patients were redesignated so

lower paid nurses could be used. Delayed elective surgeries, some as a result of the Olympics, will likely result in longer wait times for some procedures, said Fraser Health CEO Dr. Nigel Murray. But many of the spending reductions and service changes should yield ongoing savings, he said, not just a one-year gain in cash flow. Steady population growth and demand for health services is putting continued pressure on Fraser, which struggles to keep pace with demand despite significant funding increases. Emergency room visits to area hospitals are running at a rate 11.8 per cent higher than a year ago. The number of admitted patients is up nearly nine per cent, births are up three per cent and neonatal intensive care units are dealing with 10 per cent more high-risk newborns. “There is unprecedented demand for services,” Murray

said. “We are growing at about double the provincial average, about two per cent per annum.” He said staff overtime has been cut 25 per cent, saving about $8 million, and administration costs have been reduced to less than 10 per cent of the total budget – in part by terminating several vice-presidents and other senior administrators. He said it’s too early in Fraser’s budget process to tell how much of an increase from Fraser’s current $2.48 billion budget is needed for 2010-11 to maintain service at the new levels. Despite the restraint, more hospital space is being built. A $35-million expansion at Chilliwack General Hospital is slated to open next winter. The new Surrey Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre, a $239-million project to shift day surgery and clinics out of clogged Surrey Memorial Hospital, is now 55 per cent finished.

news Revised project returns to council after numerous changes

Etpa development to go before public hearing Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

The Epta proposal – a residential building along George Street and a mixed-use rental residential/commerical building along Johnston Road – will go to public hearing March 1. White Rock council voted to rescind third reading given to the project last June, when it was still presented as a seniors independent-living facility. When the proposal returned to city hall last November as a general-market apartment project – after proponents said they were unable to secure financing for a

seniors-oriented development – council’s land-use committee sent it back to the beginning of the application process. A public information meeting has since been held, the results of which were presented in a report to council Monday. Epta Properties vice-president Angelo Tsakumis summarized the Feb. 3 meeting in a letter to city development services director Paul Stanton, which said 30 people attended the open house and the response was positive. “Most were interested to see how the designs of the buildings had changed from the initial proposal

The applicants have offered a “significant amenity contribution” to the city in return for the building height and density proposed, according to Stanton’s report.

Last month’s Investors Group Walk for Memories, a fundraiser for the Alzheimer Society of B.C., raised $85,000 between participants in Surrey, Langley and Delta. The walk – held locally Jan. 31 at Eaglequest Golf at Coyote Creek – is held annually to raise money and awareness for those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. This year’s total came close to doubling last year’s figure. Funds raised will help people impacted by the disease have the confidence and skills to maintain quality of life, and support research into more effective treatments and a cure.

Surrey Art Gallery gets boost Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Filephoto

The Surrey Art Gallery will receive $250,000 worth of upgrades.

The Surrey Art Gallery will be getting a little taller and there will be more room for storage, as the city and federal government partner on almost $250,000 worth of improvements. On Thursday afternoon, the federal government committed to investing $122,000 through the Heritage Canada Fund toward a “collections vault” at the Surrey Art Gallery, located at 13750 88 Ave. The city will be match-

ing that commitment, according to Surrey Coun. Mary Martin, who chairs the city’s parks committee. Martin said the expansion will be a vital addition to the art gallery. “We have so may important collections that need to be preserved,” Martin said. “This is huge, we’ve been looking at this for a number of years.” Martin said renovations won’t increase the footprint of the existing building, but will add space on top. “It’s a significant amount of space,

enough to allow us to continue collecting,” Martin said. Joan Owen, president of the Surrey Art Gallery Association, said the gallery “will be able to move forward with its plan to expand and extend the breadth of its exhibitions and education programming.” The news “is immensely valuable in helping the Surrey Art Gallery build a cultural legacy for future residents of Surrey, the province of British Columbia and Canada as a whole,” she said.

the water’s expansion due to heating but, taking into account the input from melting and runoff, they determined that the proportion of expansion due to heating had fallen. This raises the question of what happened to the ‘missing’ heat? Was it reflected back into the atmosphere or absorbed and stored, or what? The books are not yet balanced, which indicates that some parameter has been inaccurately measured or that a factor as yet unidentified is at play. Whatever the cause, this uncertainty warns us to be cautious about interpreting the data and applying the results. Besides this uncertainty, we must acknowledge we haven’t ascertained what circumstances set off an El Nino event. We cannot control it so we must learn to be able to react and respond rapidly and effectively when it happens; lessons which should also be applied to the ongoing climate change controversy and need to be taken to heart by those who futilely demand that we “stop global warming.” Dr. Roy Strang writes weekly on the environment for the Peace Arch News. rmstrang@shaw.ca

We enjoyed this review of our restaurant so much, we have decided to share it with you again: Looking for a place where you can find top-notch customer service, fresh and delicious food and a comfortable atmosphere, all while staying on budget? Look no further than Delrios restaurant in Ocean Park, for a casual dining experience with food that is anything but average. Hormoz Having heard much ado about Delrios’ food and service, I had to see for myself what all the fuss was all about – and I wasn’t disappointed. The soft decor and warm ambience of this family hot spot – located at 1669 128 St. – are a perfect complement to the friendly and outgoing nature of both our server and Delrios owner, Hormoz. Looking around the room at the variety of patrons – from seniors to families, couples and youths – it was easy to see that the restaurant appeals to all age groups. Aside from our waitress’ quick and friendly service, it was obvious that cleanliness is also high on the list of Delrios’ priorities, as the restaurant was in tiptop shape, despite being quite busy. As if I wasn’t already impressed by the atmosphere, wonderful service and sparkling dining room, the food really blew me away. I had to try an appetizer, as the menu boasts several favourites including pita with tsatziki sauce, calamari, chicken fingers, mushroom caps, french onion soup and several delicious and fresh salads. I settled on the mushroom caps, which were some of the tastiest I’ve ever had – though the calamari that went by on its way to another table was enough to make my mouth water. I had heard a lot about Delrios’ slow-cooked BBQ ribs, so I couldn’t resist giving them a try. And they were as good as they sound – tender and cooked to perfection so the meat fell right off the bone. Despite being completely stuffed by the generous portion, I left the restaurant wondering when I could return and try another Delrios classic: New York steak and seafood, served with fresh veggies, rice pilaf or baked potato, coleslaw, onion rings and mushrooms. Having proudly served the Peninsula for more than a decade, Hormoz and his dedicated staff will be happy to provide you with a dining experience you won’t soon forget.

Why bother battling traffic in Downtown Vancouver to shop, when the most diverse selection of trendy clothes and accessories is right here on the Peninsula? One visit to Zig Zag Fashion Boutique in Peninsula Village, and you can see why it’s become a favourite of women in White Rock/South Surrey for more than 15 years. The knowledgeable and friendly staff love nothing more than helping customers find the look that suits Kerry, Manager them perfectly, one reason why people keep coming back to Zig Zag year after year, despite increased competition in the area. The store’s wide scope of brand name merchandise is another aspect that makes it one of the best places to shop in town. With denim brands including Not Your Daughter’s Jeans and Jag Jeans, and shoe brands including Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, 9 West, Fly London, and even MBT and Blundstone for men and women, it’s no surprise residents are ditching plans to cross the border and instead are staying home to satisfy their fashion needs. And the loyalty between Zig Zag staff and customers goes both ways. The store offers a unique discount program that rewards customers with points on every purchase of regular-priced merchandise. When a customer reaches 500 points, they receive a $50 gift card to spend in the store. If it’s your birthday, make sure you take time to visit Zig Zag, as the store offers a 25 per cent discount to help you celebrate your big day. As the days slowly start to get longer and the weather begins to improve, the staff at Zig Zag are getting ready for a fun spring and summer season of fashion. According to store manager Kerry, we can expect gladiator sandals, both flat and heeled, to be a hot item this spring and summer. Cowboy boots, which have made a resurgence the past few seasons will again be popular, but expect to see some softer, pale colours, such as pink and cream, for a lighter, summery look. Strappy platform sandals will be a hit, as well as the ballerina flats that were all the rage last year, and there will be lots of metallics – both gold and silver – on the shelves in all styles of shoes. Expect to see clothes in a lot of corral and orange tones, as well as peasant-style blouses in white which will be a dominant trend. Skinny jeans will continue to be more popular than their wide-legged counterparts – perfect to match with those trendy cowboy boots. Denim jackets and bright-coloured clutches are another style we should expect to see plenty of this spring and summer. Whatever style or trend you seek, the staff at Zig Zag Fashion Boutique will help you find the perfect look so you’ll leave their store feeling your best.

White Rock Players’ Club For more than 65 years, the White Rock Players’ Club has been entertaining audiences with gut-busting humour to tear-jerking drama. The tradition of highcalibre productions is set to continue this year, as the club prepares for another season of comedy, drama and music at the Coast Capital Playhouse. Opening this week and expected to bring plenty of laughs is Bedtime Stories, by popular Canadian playwright Norm Foster. This play tells the story of 15 characters in six separate scenes, each set in a different venue.

Dave Baron

“The overall theme is love in its many splendid forms,” said club president Dave Baron, who also has directing duties for Bedtime Stories. “From a young couple who just got divorced to a longtime happily married couple, and everything in between.” Described as “a little risqué, but very funny,” Bedtime Stories boasts a cast of mostly local talent, including favourites Roger Currie, Vanessa Klein and Ryan Elliott, plus a sprinkling of newcomers, according to Baron. With an amazing mechanical set likened to a Transformers toy, Bedtime Stories – running until Feb. 27 – is not to be missed. On the bill for April is the fun comedy-drama Humble Boy, directed by Paul Kloegman, following his successful direction of 20th Century last year. In June, things will get a little more serious when WRPC presents The Stepmother, directed by Alan White. After a successful series of Music in the Theatre events last year, White Rock Players’ Club is thrilled to present another run, starting March 6 with Gary Comeau and the Voodoo All Stars. A Night of Song, featuring Wendy Bollard, Laura Crema and Kate HammettVaughn, is slated for May 8 and Juno-nominated swinging blues band The Twisters will take the stage July 10. An exciting spring season of the Royal Opera House in HD, presented in association with the Rotary Club, is also in full swing at the Playhouse. Upcoming video presentations include Falstaff, at the Glyndebourne Opera Festival; The Barber of Seville, at Teatro Real, Last Night of the Proms at The Royal Albert Hall and La Traviata at Covent Garden. The White Rock Players’ Club is a non-profit community group run almost entirely by a group of dedicated volunteers. The club produces five shows per year and aims to offer audiences the best-quality theatre in a convenient local venue, with free parking and economical ticket prices. The facility is also available for rental by community and performing arts groups and businesses.

For more than 10 years, Spectrum Optometry has been “Bringing Vision to Life” on the Peninsula, offering a full range of eye care services for the whole family. With an emphasis on customer service, the doctors and staff at Spectrum Optometry make it their goal to provide customized and personal care to their patients, to reflect their patients’ individual needs. From comprehensive eye exams – including Dr. Stephanie Gautier screening for glaucoma, cataracts, diabetes and Dr. Michelle Elliott various ocular diseases – to contact lens services and eyeglasses, Spectrum Optometry covers it all. Spectrum also carries a wide selection of sunglasses, available in both prescription and non-prescription lenses. Minor repairs and routine frame adjustments can also be provided by the opticians, if necessary. Spectrum Optometry was thrilled to add Dr. Stephanie Gautier to its team last year, her expertise and high quality of care has made her the perfect fit for the Peninsula Village clinic. Born and raised in Kelowna, Dr. Gautier completed her Bachelor of Science in Microbiology and Immunology at the University of British Columbia. She headed east to pursue a career in optometry, where she completed her Doctor of Optometry at the University of Waterloo, earning many awards throughout the duration of her studies. Dr. Gautier has conducted research at the B.C. Cancer Agency and has volunteered with the Lions Club International, where she travelled to northern Chile to provide eye care to those in need. She is thrilled to be back in her home-province and is enjoying both the Peninsula and the patients she has treated since joining Spectrum’s team. A small-town, friendly atmosphere is something the doctors and staff at Spectrum Optometry strive for, along with close relationships with their patients. Not only does this create a welcoming and fun environment for patients, it also allows Spectrum to fit their patients with the best possible product, specifically suited to their lifestyle and needs. Whether you’re driving your car, reading a newspaper or watching a movie, your eyes play an important role in your day-to-day routine, and vision problems can adversely affect the way you live your life. The health of your eyes is something that should never be taken for granted, which is why regular visits to an optometrist are an essential part of maintaining overall health and well-being. Visit Spectrum Optometry, at 15355 24Ave., for a full eye health examination.

“Bringing Vision to Life” is more than just providing you with a full eye health examination. Our doctors listen and understand your visual needs, then develop a personal solution to ensure you have the best vision possible. Spectrum Optometry offers a full service eye care clinic for the whole family. Having a regular eye health examination is the best way of ensuring you have the best possible vision.

Elegante Shoes Celebrating their 28th year of providing the hottest styles in footwear from around the world, Elegante Shoes in the Semiahmoo Shopping Centre continues to build on their reputation as a customer favourite on the Peninsula. With a unique, international selection of the highest quality shoes for men and women of all ages, it’s no Scott Rob - owner wonder Elegante has built a loyal customer base in White Rock/South Surrey over nearly three decades. But what really sets them apart from the competition is their commitment to putting the customer first and providing service that is next to none. As a family-owned and operated business, owners Scott and Drew Robb understand the importance of developing a relationship with their customers, and are committed to more than just making sales. And because they’re not a part of a big, nation-wide chain, Elegante is able to buy their shoes directly for their customers and customize their stock, based on demand. This exceptional level of customer service, along with the diverse selection of high-quality merchandise, has helped garner Elegante a number of repeat customers – which is important for a small business in times where the retail options and competition in the community continue to grow. As Scott and Drew gear up for the Spring and Summer season, Scott said to expect an emphasis on the all-purpose shoe this year, something you can certainly find in stock at Elegante. “Today, the consumer’s quite conscious about finding a shoe that they can do as much as they possibly can in,” Scott said, adding that many styles can double as both dressy and casual shoes. Scott said to expect to see a lot of muted metallics this season – a trend that is carrying over from last year – but fewer bright, bold colours than we’ve seen in the past. If the fact that Elegante Shoes has repeatedly been voted #1 on the Peninsula, and are the oldest shoe store in town isn’t enough to convince you to visit the store in Semiahmoo Centre, stop by and see for yourself the difference a commitment to quality and service can make.

Check Point Plumbing

An Annual Check-Up is critical for the safety and efficient operation of your furnace and boiler.

With a commitment to customer satisfaction and nearly 100 years of combined industry experience, Check Point Plumbing is proud to offer topnotch, knowledgeable service you can count on. Whether it’s a clogged sink, a leaky hot water tank or a gas fireplace on the fritz, the team at Check Point Plumbing will get the job done quickly and accurately, according to co-owner Beth Henderson.

on your furnace OR… 10 check-point inspection on boiler servicing. CALL TODAY!

With winter in full swing, this is the time of year many homeowners think about replacing their old, inefficient furnace with a newer and more efficient model. In some respects, today’s high-efficiency furnaces, which generally start around $4,000, are better engineered than the $30,000 car you drive off the lot. With up to 95 per cent efficiency, more heat goes into your home than up the chimney with older models. Redesigned heat exchangers – complete with recovery coils – better insulation with state-of-the-art controls and energy-efficient blower motors, some with four speeds and quiet as a whisper, all provide long-lasting comfort. High and low-fire gas valves combined with variable speed blowers provide the perfect amount of heat required – for warmer days, the gas valve fires on low mode and the blower cuts in on low speed; for cold days, both the gas valve and the blower operate on high to bring your home up to a set temperature, where it will stay comfortably. Also important is a good digital thermostat to replace the old mechanical style you may still have. The friendly folks at Check Point Plumbing would be more than happy to visit your home to check out your existing unit and make some recommendations.

Institute New Beauty Combining cutting-edge technology, top-quality beauty products and a dedicated, knowledgeable staff, Institute New Beauty is a favourite among women looking to look and feel their best. Focusing on all aspects of body and skin care, including weight loss and nutrition as well as revolutionary antiaging treatments you won’t ďŹ nd anywhere else, the centre has built a reputation for producing amazing results, in a comfortable and caring atmosphere. Caree Ludwar Owner Caree Ludwar and the New Beauty team are thrilled to welcome Dr. Bernice Brits, the centre’s new Medical Director. Dr. Brits will continue her family practice here on the Peninsula and will be at the centre doing Botox and ďŹ llers regularly, adding to the centre’s amazing range of services and procedures. If you’re a little hesitant to have Botox or ďŹ llers done, the Fibropen System is a great option. This safe and effective device uses radiofrequency technology directly inside wrinkles, causing ďŹ broblasts stimulation, ďŹ lling and revitalizing the area of concern. Another great procedure that has seen exceptional results is the Titan, which delivers signiďŹ cant skin-tightening without the downtime or scars of surgery. Infrared light heats the dermis deep below the skin’s surface, which stimulates long-term collagen growth and tightens any lack skin – especially turkey neck and jowels – after just a few treatments. To battle unsightly sun spots, ďŹ ne lines and wrinkles, Caree recommends the Pearl procedure, by Cutera. This safe, non-invasive procedure has been showing remarkable results since it was introduced at the centre, with very few patients requiring more than one treatment. When it comes to looking and feeling your best, weight loss and slimming techniques that help women win the battle of the bulge are more popular than ever. One of Institute New Beauty’s signature treatments, Condessa, has become one of the most sought-after and effective slimming treatments on the Peninsula. Using low frequency ultrasound technology, the machine allows a pre-determined amount of energy to be focused onto fatty tissue. As the waves converge and accumulate, the cellular membranes are broken down and the inter-cellular uids are released and naturally metabolized. The Proellixe whole body vibration machine is another popular tool for building muscle and tone – and Institute New Beauty is back to four machines in their larger premises. Right now, you can experience this amazing body remodelling and reshaping machine – which also enhances bone density – for just $49 per month. And for the month of February, Caree is offering a special Valentine facial deal for just $99 – regularly priced at $249, this is a deal not to be missed. If you’ve been looking for ways to look and feel your best, visit Institute New Beauty in White Rock for a free consultation, and see what a difference some care, pampering and revolutionary technology can make.

World Serve Thrift World Serve Ministries, a Christian charity established in White Rock in 1976, is proud to introduce World Serve Thrift, which opened at Hillcrest Mall last month. The organization – formerly known as Living Bibles International – provides humanitarian aid and bible supply around the world, as well as missionary/pastor support in countries that are Shirley & Melody closed to freedom of religion. Members are currently in Cuba, providing support for pastors and their families, as well as helping to rebuild areas that were hardest hit by a 2008 hurricane. Since first arriving in Cuba in 1994, World Serve has been distributing muchneeded scriptures and training materials to churches and seminaries and funding children’s camps and marriage ministries. In China, World Serve has recently wrapped up a large, earthquakerelief campaign and also provides relief for people suffering from religious persecution, in a country where being Christian can result in prison sentences and abuse. In Ethiopia, a country devastated by famine, World Serve is working hard to provide famine relief, as well as pastor support and training. As a new way to generate much-needed funds to support the important work World Serve does around the globe, the thrift store quickly evolved from an idea into a reality. World Serve Thrift has been open for just over a month, and boasts more than 7,000 square feet of diverse merchandise. From clothing to furniture and home decor items, even tools are available at the store. When you shop at World Serve Thrift, not only will you find a great bargain, but you’ll also be supporting a great cause, as all the proceeds from the store go directly to the charity and its many projects. The store is almost entirely volunteer-run, so if you’ve got some time to spare for a good cause, visit World Serve Thrift to find out how you can get involved. They’re also constantly looking for donations of gently used furniture, clothing, accessories and other household items to add to their diverse selection of merchandise.

A crowd eagerly awaits the torch near Semiahmoo Centre.

Community alight with Olympic spirit

T

he Peninsula was ignited with Olympic spirit this week, as the awe-inspiring Olympic Torch Relay made its way through South Surrey and White Rock Tuesday morning. It was still dark out when the crowds began to gather at various locations throughout the community – but the early wake-up call did nothing to dampen the excitement of the thousands of residents who came out to cheer on the flame. After the lighting of the community cauldron at Holland Park the night before, in front of tens of thousands of supporters, the flame was transported to Highway 99 and 152 Street in the early hours of Tuesday morning. The first crowd to catch a glimpse of the torch was gathered at South Point, where the day’s journey began at 6:12 a.m. Hundreds of spectators lined the street – many of them local elementary students with their families – and the anticipation grew as the flame stood stationary for a few minutes while final preparations were made. Bright corporate sponsor trucks – complete with booming sound systems, flashing lights and energetic dancers – made their way down the torch route to

Gurwant Singh was the first lucky torchbearer of the morning, heading south on 152, past the smiling crowds cheering him on. Further down the line towards Semiahmoo Shopping Centre, several hundred spectators adorned in red and

waving Canadian flags, eagerly awaited the torch’s arrival. Chants of “Canada! Canada!” carried through the crowd, as the torch crossed into White Rock, made its way down Johnston Road and headed east on Roper Avenue. Marine Drive was crammed with people hoping to get a glimpse of the

torch, which made a brief stop in front of White Rock Museum and Archives, where Mayor Catherine Ferguson and MP Russ Hiebert were on hand to lead the crowd in an impromptu version of O Canada. The excitement hit a fever pitch as the torch arrived at its final stop on the Peninsula, Peace Arch Park at 7:30 a.m., where B.C., Washington and First Nations dignitaries were on hand to join in the celebrations. After introductions and the singing of the Coast Salish national anthem, the Semiahmoo First Nation performed a Fire Keepers ceremony, as Premier Gordon Campbell and Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire looked on. Torchbearer Rayne Williams then passed the flame to U.S. torchbearer, former Olympian Phil Mahre, who took the flame onto U.S. soil for the first time during its 103-day relay. Once the flame was back in Canada, torchbearer Chamila Anthonypillai, along with Campbell and Gregoire, lit the cauldron onstage. The Peace Arch Park event was wrapped up with both the Canadian and U.S. anthems, and speeches by Campbell, Gregoire and VANOC CEO

John Furlong. The torch then made its way to North Delta, where it continued the rest of its journey which included stops in New Westminster, Tsawwassen and Ladner. The final stop of the day was in Richmond, where thousands gathered to cheer on the Man in Motion himself, Rick Hansen, who lit the community cauldron at the city’s official celebration site, called the O Zone.

Smaller festival, big performances Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Students Ian Trevorrow and Jenny Zhu rehearse for the strings-only festival this weekend.

The B.C. Registered Music Teachers’ (RMT) South Fraser Music Festival is back this year – but as a strings-only event. While most of the piano, brass and woodwind teachers in the area have postponed their part of the annual festival until 2011 – after the Olympic year – the eight string teachers have decided to carry on with the annual adjudicated showcase. “It was too important for our students to let it disappear, even for a year,” said Carla Birston, who is organizing this year’s mini-festival for the string teachers. “We can’t afford the luxury of burnout, so we just determined to go ahead on our own.” The festival will be held Feb. 15 to 17 at

White Rock Community Church (15280 Pacific Ave.) featuring 127 entries ranging from beginners to advance grade performances – all of which are open to the public. But the most enjoyable part for outside audiences will be the recital for all the “gold” winners chosen by adjudicators Karen Gerbecht, a violinist for the Vancouver Symphony, and distinguished Abbotsford violin teacher Beth Nickel. The gala event will take place Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. at Mount Olive Lutheran Church, 2350 148 St. The festival normally runs for 2½ weeks, and had a total of 1,096 students from 64 teachers last year – the 50th anniversary of the festival. “We’re very proud that our small group

of teachers can still present a significant percentage of music students in the community,” Birston said. “I’m thrilled that we didn’t give up,” said Erika Bennedik, also a long time violin teacher in the community, who recently resigned her chair in the Vancouver Opera Association orchestra so she could devote more time to her students. “I joined the RMT when I first came out here in the early ’80s because they had this wonderful festival,” she said. As a teacher she knows the value of the festival – and the recognition it brings – in keeping students focused on their studies in a way that not even recitals can accomplish. “This is great for them – they need that  see page 48

Funny, easy to watch  from page 45 “I have a thing for plays adapted from old TV shows,” Seib laughs. “I guess it’s my thing now.” Father Knows Best is the 21-year-old’s first time at the helm of an adult production. “It’s a mixed cast,” he says, noting the actors range in age from nine to 69. “At first I was nervous being a young person telling adults what to do. But everyone’s very supportive and they listen to me, so it’s all good.” His mom, Brigitte Seib, a longtime set designer with Surrey Little, initially brought him the script. Tyler liked it and almost immediately started coming up with staging concepts, such as incorporating film clips from the era and designing the entire set and costumes in black and white. “It’s been very difficult,” he says. “I feel sorry for the costume lady because it’s her first time doing costumes and she has to do 17 actors in period 1950s and grayscale. Amazingly enough, she got them all together.” Though dated in much of its content, both Seib and Van Sickle believe audiences will find Father Knows Best is a fun, easy-towatch production. “It’s a funny little play and it’s nothing controversial at all,” says Van Sickle. “I think that was one of the comments that was always made about Father Knows Best is that it didn’t really tackle a lot of big issues. But that’s fine. It’s good entertainment. “Hopefully people will remember the old TV show, and if they don’t they can watch it on YouTube.” Surrey Little Theatre’s production of Father Knows Best runs Thursdays through Sundays at 8 p.m. until Feb. 21, with matinees Feb. 14 and 21. Tickets are $15 each and can be reserved by calling 604-576-8451 or by emailing reservations@ surreylittletheatre.com. The theatre is located at 7027 184 St.

arts & entertainment Alicia Ballard’s work on international tour

Artist going global Alex Browne Arts Reporter

When one door closes, another opens. That’s the motto for Alicia Ballard, whose energy-based, emotionally driven abstract and semi-abstract painting is finding an audience both locally and internationally, even with the usual distractions, discouragements and disappointments that are the lot of a White Rock-based artist. But she’s on an undeniable upswing currently – so much so that a calendar is necessary to keep up with her profusion of shows and participation in group exhibits, a product of industrious, ever-evolving work and continuing networking. Throughout February, selected acrylics, mixed media and watercolours by Ballard are highlighted in a display at White Rock Library. From March 1 to 23, a solo show of her work will be the exhibit at Semiahmoo Library. And from April 1 to 30, some of her latest paintings will be featured with new work by well-known White Rock artist Irena Shklover in a joint exhibit at the Community Arts Council of White Rock gallery at Windsor Square. Meanwhile, Ballard – born in Buenos Aires of Hungarian parents, and raised in Argentina and Uruguay – has seen her joyful large-scale abstract Intermezzo Giocoso act as an international ambassador for her work. Chosen for the Contemporary

Alicia Ballard has a busy schedule of exhibits in the coming months. International Art II group exhibit at the Museum of the Americas in Miami, Fla. last July, it has since left the U.S. with curator-artist Oscar A. Poliotto for an extended tour of Latin America. From September to October, it was at the Ideal Theatre Provincial Cultural Centre at Venada Tuerto, Santa Fe, Argentina, and from November to December it was at the Baraka Exhibition Salon in Rosario, also in Santa Fe. It’s currently at the International Art Fair as Mar del Sur, Buenos Aires, from whence it will travel to the Museo Provincial de Bellas Artes Rosa Galisteo in Santa Fe. And in March, by arrangement with the artist, Intermezzo Giocoso will be  see page 48

‘I’m told that everybody who sees it smiles’  from page 47 reproduced on plexiglas as part of an exhibit honoring the 50th anniversary of the Asociacion Mexicana de Lucha Contra el Cancer in Mexico City. At the same time, Ballard has been invited to contribute another painting to the international mail art project Sport & Arte at the Galleria d’Arte della Associazone E.ART at Civitanova Marche in Italy – and she’s also considering a new invitation to show work in Paris. The upbeat and colourful Intermezzo Giocoso is, Ballard admits “very well-travelled,� and she’s hardly surprised – “I’m told that everybody who sees it smiles.�

A future separation of the string division from the other sections of the RMT festival may be a necessary evolution, she acknowledged. The string teachers – with fewer students to deal with – can afford to take the three

days of the festival off from other teaching duties, providing more attention to the students and helping explain adjudicators’ remarks to put them into context – and sometimes doing “damage control� – Bennedik said. “We’re always there. Another big advantage we have over the other teachers is in apportioning duties – things get done without people even being asked. We’re a small happy family.�

No accident that one of her works, a diptych currently on display at White Rock Library, is titled Rorshach Chroma – as in a Rorshach test, the response to Ballard’s work is often as revealing of the spectator as of the artist. “The Rorschach test is usually black and white,� Ballard observed. “It’s a question of how you see life. A lot of people see it in black and white but this girl sees it in Technicolor.� But the vividness of Ballard’s vision is always evolving, as works at the library reveal. In addition to experimenting with different

mixed media, she is revisiting and recycling earlier work to offer a new perspective. One painting, Pas de Deux, was originally created as a much smaller work on paper at a time when she was working in a smaller space than her current Studio Galeria. “I loved the way acrylic looks on paper,� she said of the piece, which she has mounted on a canvas, and extended beyond its original borders. This process has also led her to a picture-within-a-picture composi-

tional style which she is using for new paintings to be featured at the CAC Gallery show with Shklover. In these she is also experimenting with an acrylic process to ‘lift’ elements of photographic images she has taken of White Rock and its environs, creating highly textured emotional and psychological landscapes. “I’m very excited about and looking forward to the show with Irena,� Ballard said. “Our work is very different, but quite complementary – it will work together well.�

IS I T TOO MUCH TO ASK for a cup of coffee, yes, cup, and not styrofoam with that cardboard thingy? Or a grocery list that lives in the moment, not in the freezer. Ask yourself, when did driving replace living? When was stopping to smell the groceries replaced by a good whiff of exhaust? This is where your favourite bakery is where you live and you’re always home (even when you’re not). Morgan Crossing is a new way to live that’s completely related to an old way to live. Think about that and the imagination lights up. Maybe you picture a morning stroll downstairs for oven fresh croissants and cappuccino from the barista who knows your name. Imagine stepping out for a drink with friends or making new ones all over the neighbourhood. It’s unlimited. Really, Morgan Crossing isn’t a new invention, it’s about a time long before time mattered.

GRAND OPENING

Students from Ocean Cliff Elementary’s Grade 7 drama club recently took their acting skills to the stage, with a performance of Tim Kelly’s Hollywood Hillbillies. The comedy takes place in Happy Hollows, deep in the Ozarks, a small town that is shaken by Hollywood visitors, snobby distant relatives and plans for the building of a new highway. The school’s version of the play was directed by Chris Hall.

Semiahmoo peewee club set for prestigious Quebec City tournament

Ravens take flight for ‘experience of lifetime’ Nick Greenizan

Sports Reporter

ith bright new sweaters on their backs, and a playoff-series win already under their belts, it will be with confidence and a healthy dose of excitement that the Semiahmoo Ravens’ peewee A1 team boards a plane today for Quebec City. The Ravens are heading east for the Quebec International Peewee Hockey Tournament, one of the most prestigious minor hockey events in North America, and one that helped launch the careers of players such as Mario Lemieux, Wayne Gretzky, Guy Lafleur and Eric Lindros. “We’re getting very, very excited,” said Ravens head coach Mike Scardina, who will making his second appearance at the tournament, after coaching a Richmond team at the event 13 years ago. “It is the experience of these kids’ hockey lives. I’ve been once before, but I’m thrilled to be able to go again with these kids.” Semiahmoo will play its first game Feb. 15 against the Philadelphia Flyers. Coincidentally, the Ravens will be sporting new, orange uniforms modeled after those worn by the NHL’s Flyers. The team also has matching helmets and gloves for the tournament.

Sharks lose premier-league shootout in Victoria and we couldn’t stop them.” With both defences showing signs of early-season rust, Benoit said the difference in the game was Victoria’s success with its set pieces, and the Sharks’ inability to make tackles when they needed them. “We couldn’t stop their set pieces, and they really managed the field better than us,” Benoit said, adding that his club missed at least 40 per cent of its tackles. “The guys played hard – it

Offence was easy to come by and the defence – for both teams – was spotty at best, in the Bayside Sharks’ 53-32 loss to University of Victoria Saturday, in the first week of the Canadian Direct Insurance Premier League rugby season. “It was a bit of a Wild West shootout – a lot of points out there,” said Bayside head coach Dave Benoit. “Basically, they couldn’t stop us,

too big a hole early, which is what happened last season. Though last year the Sharks were able to make a late run and qualify for playoffs, Benoit said they’d rather not have to go that route again. The Sharks will look to even their win-loss record this weekend at Vancouver’s Jericho Park, against the UBC Old Boys Ravens. “(The Ravens) are much improved from last year, but if we want to make the playoffs, and make it easy on ourselves, then

these are the types of teams we have to beat,” Benoit said. This weekend, the Sharks will be without Henderson and Chris Pack, however. Both players will be in Las Vegas playing for Canada’s national sevens squad. The Sharks’ first division squad will also battle the Ravens Saturday, at 1:15 p.m. The premiers play at 3 p.m. Bayside’s second division club is also in action Saturday in Vancouver; they play at Capilano at 11:30 a.m.

Competition fierce as Storm, Orcas prep for Valleys Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The road to provincial championships begin in earnest this week for a pair of Peninsula high school hoops squads – the Elgin Park Orcas senior girls, and the senior boys squad from Southridge Secondary. The Storm hit the court at doubleA Fraser Valley Championships in Chilliwack Wednesday for a firstround tilt against Hope, while the Orcas begin the Fraser Valley tournament Monday at Riverside Secondary in Coquitlam. With competition as tough as ever this season, neither squad is expecting an easy path to the title. The Southridge Storm are seeded

No. 1 in the eight-team boys event, but head coach Steve Anderson has cautioned his team about getting too cocky. “At this time of year, if you get too over-confident, that’s when you get upset,” he said. “There’s a lot of parity in the Valley this year, but if we play well, I think we can beat anybody.” Southridge was second at the Fraser Valleys last year, losing 68-52 to Mission in the championship game. This year, they come into the Valleys after an undefeated regular season, going a perfect 11-0 in league play. “We’ve had a pretty decent year. We just have to take it to the next

level now, and make it a great year,” Anderson said Wednesday morning, before his team’s first game. “We’ve had quite a bit of success at Fraser Valleys the last four or five years, so we know that, every game we play, teams are going to be gunning for us, so our guys have to be ready for that.” The top three teams from the Fraser Valleys will advance to provincials, which means Southridge will clinch a spot if they win their first two games. If they lose one, they’ll have to attempt to qualify through the consolation side of the tournament bracket. “We’d have to go through the back door, and nobody wants to do that,” Anderson said. “We’d like

to win two.” The Orcas are aiming for a berth at provincials, too, and will be looking to carry momentum from the Fraser Valley West zone playoffs – which they won last week at Seaquam Seconday – into the Valley tournament. Elgin Park won the west zone banner with a lopsided 92-40 win over Delta. The Orcas expect a much tougher tournament at Riverside. “We’re going to have a tough go of it,” said Elgin Park coach Stu Graham. “We have to win our first two games to advance, and it’s a tougher tournament than it’s been in recent years.” The Fraser Valley has five provincial berths this year, with two

potential wild cards spots. “We’re all so equal this year. Riverside, ourselves, (W.J.) Mouat, Maple Ridge – we’ve all beaten each other at different times,” Graham said. There are no zone playoffs in the triple-A senior boys league this season, which means the White Rock Christian Academy Warriors – who have owned the Fraser Valley West league for the past decade – need only a top-four finish in league-play in the Southwest Division. The top four teams advance to the 32-team Fraser Valley tournament, which begins in two weeks. Currently, the Warriors are first in the southwest with a 8-0 record.

Shane Kuss is out for three games.

League suspends coach The Surrey Eagles will be without their bench boss for the next three games, after head coach Shane Kuss was suspended by the league following last Saturday’s contest against the Langley Chiefs, which the Eagles lost 3-2. Kuss was highly critical of the referee, Kris Hartley, following the game, which at one point featured nine straight Eagle penalties. In the third period, the Chiefs also had a pair of five-on-three power plays, each for a full two minutes. At the end of the game, Kuss was given a gross misconduct penalty. Kuss will miss both games this weekend – Surrey hosts Langley Friday and the Williams Lake Timberwolves Sunday – as well as next Friday’s road game in Trail. He’s eligible to return to the bench Feb. 20, when the Eagles are in Salmon Arm to take on the Silverbacks. In his absence, coaching duties will fall to assistant coaches Matt Erhart and Roger Ross.

Peter is survived by his loving wife Helen (nee Hiebert) and his daughter Juanita, Gordon and Stuart. Peter spent his first 51 years in Saskatchewan mostly working on the family farm. The rest of his days were spent in White Rock, BC. Some of Peter’s proud accomplishments were being a lifetime member of the National Farmers Union, the Canadian National Institute for the blind, President for a time with the White Cane Club, the CanadaUSSR Friendship Society and being involved in local politics. Peter was a wonderful and caring soul who always had a great smile and brought joy to everyone he met. Despite being blind for most of his life, he never let it stop him from getting around. We will miss his laughter, singing tunes and his braveness during his battle with Alzheimer’s disease. A warm thank you goes out to the staff on D2 at Evergreen. You gave him and his family comfort when he needed special care. Since his family is spread out over many provinces, we will ask those who knew him to remember him for a moment or two on Tuesday, February 23rd at 3:10 pm. We will love & miss you Dad You will forever be warming our hearts and souls. ”We will meet again someday”.
