No new schools on track, while district awaits provincial funding

Made-in-Surrey school solution sought Sheila Reynolds Black Press

The Surrey School District needs $250 million. Now. That would provide two new high schools, says District Supt. Mike McKay, and four or five new elementary schools. It would also help reduce the sea of portables sitting at schools such as Hazelgrove and Cambridge elementaries, and relieve pressure at some local high schools where simply navigating crowded hallways between

classes can be difficult. Instead, however, thousands of Surrey’s elementary school kids will continue to learn in portable classrooms and every high school is looking at extending days or expanding online options in order to accommodate more teens. In an editorial board meeting with Peace Arch News and Surrey Leader Wednesday, McKay, as well as Surrey Board of Education chair Laurae McNally and vice-chair Shawn Wilson, shared the ongoing financial strains

and complexities faced by the ever-growing district. Surrey ushered in more than 800 new students last fall and is expecting another 1,167 or so to arrive this September. The city is different than any other in B.C., most areas of which have declining enrolment and are looking to close schools because there aren’t enough students to fill them. “The case the board has made relentlessly… is we need a made-in-Surrey solution,” said McKay.

“We do not fit the mould,” added McNally. The opening of Adams Road Elementary in Cloverdale this year represented the last of the capital money the province approved for the Surrey School District, in 2005. Apart from funding for seismic improvements and dollars targeting full-day kindergarten space, no building money has been sent Surrey’s way for six years. Even if the $250-million cheque the district fantasizes about was delivered today, it  see page 5

Premier contender

Falcon says he’ll dominate the north

Mall vacancy concerns city Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Alex Browne Staff Reporter

As the clock ticks down to this weekend’s vote in which provincial Liberals choose B.C.’s next leader, local contender Kevin Falcon remains focused on the roots of his support, and what the priorities will be, should he win. In a series of small meetings with select groups of key supporters in the constituency Wednesday – including some 30 local movers and shakers who gathered for lunch at the Rotary Field House in South Surrey – the Ocean Park resident offered a low-key, amongfriends warmup to the next evening’s planned rally at Cloverdale Fairgrounds. But the Surrey-Cloverdale MLA did offer one prediction for Saturday – that his campaign, which already has the backing of 19 colleagues, including 11 senior cabinet ministers, would receive a groundswell of support from B.C.’s north. Falcon told the South Surrey group that was why he jour-

Concerns are mounting over the loss of Shoppers Drug Mart from White Rock’s Central Plaza. Merchants in the strip mall say business is down since the anchor store moved across the street to Semiahmoo Shopping Centre in South Surrey, and city officials worry the situation is only going to worsen with news the site could remain unoccupied until the lease expires in October. “I’m obviously concerned, and concerned for the businesses in the area,” Mayor Catherine Ferguson said. “Nobody can move in until after October.” The city learned a year ago of a plan to relocate Shoppers across the street in South Surrey. The store opened in its new location – an 18,500-square-foot free-standing building – last month. While some impact was anticipated, at least one Central Plaza merchant said the loss of walk-in traffic since Shoppers left has been “devastating.” “If you come and you look at our parking lot, you’ll see how devastating it is,” said Shelly O’Brien, owner of Pelican Rouge Coffee Co. “It’s very hard.” Located in Central Plaza for the past 11 years, O’Brien said she has had to cut staffing as a result of the  see page 4

Getting back to Falcon’s roots in Surrey, I believe he could make a difference in how this area is perceived, province-wide, should he be successful on Saturday. Surrey is the fastest-growing area of B.C. The need for government services, particularly in the areas of health and education, far outstrip the resources that are available. But Surrey people do more than just whine about the challenges they face. Many of them do something about it. That’s why the Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation has kicked off a $10-million campaign to raise funds for the new outpatient and surgery centre at Green Timbers – a campaign that began Monday with Jim Pattison writing a $5-million cheque to get the ball rolling. The new facility will bear his name as well. “It’s time we have a person from the Fraser Valley in the premier’s office,” Falcon said Wednesday. There is no doubt that having a local perspective on the challenges that face Surrey and other parts of the fast-growing Fraser Valley will be of enormous value. That decision is now up to BC Liberal party members. We will know how they have made their minds up on Saturday night. Many BC Liberals in Surrey, Delta and White Rock will cast their votes for Falcon, and put their hopes on him gaining enough first and second choices to win.

news Break-in nets $4,000 worth of electronics

Smash-and-grab thieves target dance studio Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Brian Giebelhaus photo

Dawn O’Kane surveys the damage.

Grant O’Kane knows a couple of things about the person or people who broke into the office of his White Rock dance studio early Wednesday morning: they’re opportunists, they’re quick and – perhaps most disturbingly – they’re patient. “The break-in occurred four minutes after we set the alarm,” O’Kane said. “They were waiting in the shadows for us to leave… waited a couple hours. “It’s not a comforting thing to know.” The studio, owned by O’Kane and his wife, Dawn, closed for the day at 10 p.m. Tuesday

(Feb. 22). As is often the case, Dawn stayed late training some of the Arthur Murray instructors, then locked the doors behind them when they left around midnight. O’Kane got the call from the alarm company a short while later. He arrived back at the studio to find police at the scene and the large office window smashed. Large pieces of glass were dangling guillotine-style in the frame. Thieves – it’s believed there were at least two and that they used a steering-wheel club to break the glass – didn’t even step inside, O’Kane said. “They literally broke the window, reached in and grabbed the items,” he said. About $4,000 worth of electronics was taken,

including a big-screen television, video camera and laptop. The smash-and-grab is the second break-in at the studio in its nine years at the site, 15151 Russell Ave. In the first, 5½ years ago, two computers were taken. Items stolen this time were all in plain view through the office window – a lesson O’Kane hopes neighbouring business owners will learn from. O’Kane commended the quick response of police to the alarm, and said additional security measures will be looked at for the studio in light of the incident. Anyone with information on the break-in may contact White Rock RCMP at 778-593-3600.

Rotarians co-ordinate park plans

Parking time limits reduced

New rules criticized

Nick Greenizan

Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Staff Reporter

New one-hour limits at three Five Corners’ parking spots are confusing customers and impacting business, some merchants say. But the intent of the change – which took effect about two months ago – is to make business viable for all, White Rock Mayor Catherine Ferguson said. The city installed signage designating the one-hour spots in response to concerns from area merchants who complained of a need for more regular turnover, Ferguson said. “There are some businesses there that have customers that aren’t longterm, such as the barber shop and the tailor. They have expressed concerns to the city about the fact that they’re losing customers,” Ferguson said. “Customers need to be able to access their business earlier than every two hours.” Catherine Ferguson The change was applied mayor to three of 14 parking stalls located in front of the 15202-15228 Pacific Ave. complex, on the road’s south side. According to a Jan. 4 letter addressed to one merchant, the stalls were converted in response to a petition requesting that all the stalls be changed to one-hour. A subsequent city survey of area businesses that determined only three of nine businesses were in favour of the change resulted in the current compromise, the letter states. “The decision… was not arbitrary,” city manager Peggy Clark writes. Clark notes restricted hours were also extended by an hour (to start at 8 a.m. Monday to Saturday) on all parking stalls in an effort to help alleviate the problem, and that the twohour limit on stalls on the north side of Pacific remains unchanged. While Ferguson and other city officials agree the change is a compromise, they acknowledged it won’t please everyone. “It’s an ongoing issue and there’s always going to be somebody unhappy,” said Paul Stanton, the city’s director of planning and development services. Lifelong Health partners Dr. Rod LeBlanc and Glynis de Crewe-LeBlanc are among those opposed to the change. They have petitioned the city to revert the three stalls back to a twohour limit, to no avail. “It is inconveniencing the clients and it really makes for bad business,” de Crewe-LeBlanc said of the switch. “This is ridiculous. It doesn’t support the

All five Peninsula Rotary Clubs and a new club from Newton gathered Wednesday at Hazelmere Golf Course, where they brainstormed ideas for a co-ordinated project – making improvements to South Surrey Athletic Park. Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg – who has been key in furthering the initiative, and has been meeting with SSAP user groups for a year – was also in attendance, as was Gary Lunn, federal minister of state for sport, who was the keynote speaker. Semiahmoo Soccer Club president Darryl Jones also attended the meeting on behalf of the athletic park user groups, which also include Bayside Rugby, White Rock-South Surrey Baseball and Ocean Athletics Track Club, among others. “It was a great meeting – it went very well,” said Winston Conyers of the Rotary Club of White Rock Peninsula. “It was the first time I’ve seen all the clubs come together on something like this.” The Peninsula, White Rock, Semiahmoo, Peace Arch, Millenium and Surrey/Newton rotary clubs have joined forces to help raise money for improvements to South Surrey Athletic Park, which would include bleachers at the track/ football field as well as clubhouse and washroom facilities. Hogg said the meeting helped push the project forward, and added that once all parties agree on what amenities should be included in the venture, the next step will be forming a governance model and organizing fundraising. The fact that the six rotary clubs and handful of user groups were working together impressed Lunn, Hogg added. “I was sitting with him, and he said that the co-ordinated approach was exactly the kind of thing (the government) likes to see,” Hogg said. “All if all, it was very positive, and I think everyone is eager (to get started).”

White Rock resident Connie Fisher says recent changes to parking limits in some stalls at Five Corners are causing confusion and frustration amongst residents and merchants alike. business here.” LeBlanc noted the change now means there are six signs denoting seven parking changes along the stretch of stalls. “It’s a confusing situation… for everyone. It really doesn’t make sense to a lot of people,” he said. De Crewe-LeBlanc said Lifelong staff were some of the first to receive parking tickets. Client Connie Fisher said she, too, was ticketed, after not noticing the parking restrictions had changed. Fisher, who frequents the area regularly, complained the changes weren’t clear.

The city has since forgiven her citation, and painted the restrictions onto each of the affected spots. “It’s good to see that it pays to say something,” she said. As for the merchants, Ferguson said the changes are here to stay for the time being, but could be reviewed if need be. “There’s parking on both sides of the street. We’re talking three spots,” she said. “We all want people to do well and have the opportunity to do so, and try and find a middle ground. At this point, it seems reasonable to me.”

Falcon addresses a small crowd of largely BC Liberal party members.

ONE DAY ONLY SALE

Campaign raised $700,000 Saturday, Feb. 26th, 2011  from page 1 ership campaign was all about “membership, money and momentum.” “You want to peak right before the election,” he said. His campaign has been successful on all three counts, he said, noting it had signed up some 19,900 new members at final count and had raised more than $700,000. That money wasn’t just for his own war chest, he said, adding that funds raised meant “dollars are available to fight the next election.” Talking about momentum, Falcon said the campaign had received “a real shot in the arm” from the endorsement of Health Minister Colin Hansen, a BC Liberal veteran who has the credibility of being a member since 1969. Falcon said he was also happy that, no matter the result, the leadership campaign had resulted in a “rejuvenation of the party.” He noted the BC Liberals are a “coalition party” and said he had been

gratified by support from both federal Liberals and Conservatives, and others of different affiliations, who are, he said, unified on the provincial level in the belief “there should never be another NDP government in B.C.” In an interview with Peace Arch News Friday, Falcon said his top five priorities as premier would include building B.C.’s economy; building Asia-Pacific trade; investment in health, particularly in the south of the Fraser region; investment in education; and a law-enforcement policy that targets smaller as well as bigger crimes. But his first top priority at the end of the campaign trail – no matter what the outcome – lies at home, an admittedly weary Falcon said. “After being on the road travelling, I’m looking forward to spending time with my wife, Jessica, and our baby, Josephine,” he said. “At the end of the day, I’m still a guy who has to clean out the gutters and mow the lawn.”

If the former Shoppers site remains empty through October, harsher decisions may be a necessity, she said. “I don’t know if I’ll still be here if it stays empty.” Mitchell Evanish, whose family company Newmark Projects owns the Shoppers site, said efforts are ongoing to find an appropriate new tenant. Evanish declined to discuss specifics of Shoppers’ lease with Newmark. He confirmed store officials had “been in touch” regarding terminating the lease earlier, “but it didn’t make any sense.” Having the site sit empty is not what Newmark wants either, he added. “We want the space and want a replacement for Shoppers more dearly than anybody. That’s our main con-

cern, is to find a replacement,” Evanish said. “We’re working on it. I know we’ll come up with something promising.” Ferguson raised her concerns at council Monday night. Tuesday, Coun. Grant Meyer told Peace Arch News he knows of at least three other White Rock businesses that are leaving the city in the near future, at least one of them for space in South Surrey’s Grandview Corners. “It’s obviously disappointing,” Meyer said. “I’m quite concerned about the businesses uptown, and what we can do to revitalize the uptown area.” Ferguson is hopeful an ongoing retail-needs assessment and creation of a town centre vision will help guide the city in turning the tide. Part of the retail-needs assessment will include asking businesses that have left why they made that decision, the director of planning told council.

news New Sunnyside to house daycare, community programming

Redesign delays school Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Preliminary designs for Surrey’s newest elementary school – including space for a daycare and community programming – are complete. And while officials are lauding the Neighbourhood Learning Centre concept as “perfect sense,” they’re frustrated a late call from the provincial government to do it means Sunnyside Elementary students will have to wait an extra year for their new digs. Government gave the green light to replace the aging South Surrey school (at 15250 28 Ave.) in the 2005-’06 school year. School trustees appointed the architect in October 2007, and it was anticipated the new building, at 2828 159 St., would be ready as early as next January. But direction to build the school as a Neighbourhood Learning Centre changed everything. “We had to go back and redo all the plans, so basically, we have lost a year there,” Surrey board of education chair Laurae McNally said. “The end product will be wonderful, but we’ve lost a year. It would’ve been nice if they’d made up their mind in the beginning.” Government announced its ‘Neighbourhoods of Learning’ pilot project in September 2008, touting a vision for the future of education as one where people

Sunnyside Elementary is scheduled to be replaced in January 2013. can access educational and community services under one roof. School districts were encouraged to consult with community partners and organizations to come up with innovate and inclusive designs. The idea followed the province’s 2005 support of the School Community Connections program, in which grants were provided to assist in transforming school facilities into community hubs. The Neighbourhood Learning Centres program includes the provision of extra capital to incorporate NLC approaches into school plans; all other schools are expected to use existing space to accommodate a wider range of services at each facility. The concept is anticipated to enhance students’ academic achievement and overall wellbeing, while helping build more connected communities. While Surrey has already established a number of community schools, Sunnyside will be the

district’s first Neighbourhood Learning Centre. Surrey school district Supt. Mike McKay said plans for Sunnyside’s replacement were “well underway” when officials were told to make it an NLC. The foundation would have been poured “now, I’m pretty sure, and they said, ‘hold it’,” he said. As a result, “the hole hasn’t even been dug yet.” Original sketch plans for the school were approved at a February 2010 board meeting. Surrey trustees approved the revised plans at its Feb. 10, 2011 board meeting. They include room for a daycare, a larger gymnasium and some multipurpose rooms that could accommodate community meetings or programs. Now, the plans need a thumbsup from officials in Victoria so the architect can create the working drawings. It is hoped construction will get underway this summer, and that the school will be ready for students in January 2013.

partnerships that run afterschool programs – leave Surrey with millions of dollars less than other, smaller school districts. For example, while Vancouver receives about $8.7 million annually through CommunityLINK, Surrey gets about $3.7 million. Victoria, with one-third the number of students as Surrey, receives about the same amount as this district. This year, it’s estimated about $400,000 will have to be taken from Surrey’s general operating budget to supplement the school meal program. That’s enough money to pay five teachers or several special education assistants, McKay notes, but how do you choose between hiring instructors and feeding hungry children? “Everyone acknowledges it makes no sense, but no one does anything to correct it,” says McNally of the skewed CommunityLINK funding. The many portables currently in use here also take a considerable bite out of the school district’s limited operational funds. There are about 230 of the socalled temporary classrooms on local school grounds which cost approximately $120,000 apiece to purchase and install. The provincial government has repeatedly acknowledged it is aware of Surrey’s distinct needs, but has yet to commit to any new funding.

Public can’t ignore party issues

T

he silence coming from MP Russ Hiebert speaks volumes. Hiebert (South Surrey-White RockCloverdale) has been under fire since last week, after Peace Arch News revealed that executive members of his Conservative electoral district association (EDA) left last fall, citing dissatisfaction with their MP’s ongoing politicking. Hiebert did not return phone calls. A spokesperson in Ottawa deferred all comment on the issue to new EDA president Andrew McVie. While others have since stepped forward to voice displeasure with Hiebert and at the party’s decision not to allow open nominations to replace elected representatives, others have taken this newspaper to task for reporting rumblings of dissatisfaction. To the latter group, this smacks of a newspaper interfering in their personal housekeeping. It is true a party’s process of choosing a candidate could be considered internal politics. But once a party seeks money, support and, ultimately, votes from the public, some of the operations of that party become a matter of public interest. The concerns voiced by disaffected Conservatives – among them the former EDA president and communications chair – suggest they are aware the public interest is a key factor in the business of convincing people to vote for their candidate. When a neighbour tells you of black smoke coming from your home, do you berate the neighbour – or set about seeing what the problem is? The neighbour, after all, is not hazarding a guess on the source of that smoke. The neighbour doesn’t know who set the fire, what is on fire or what that implies about general housekeeping. But show us smoke, and we can be generally sure something is burning. Perhaps the present tinder is nothing more than old slights, wounds and grievances. Perhaps some are fighting battles that should be over. But does that make dissatisfaction any less real? It’s hard, also, not to applaud the democratic wish of some Conservatives that they have the right to choose their own representative – whether Hiebert or some other contender. Perhaps the fiercely loyal Hiebert partisans of the EDA should reflect what their reaction would be if evidence of disarray had emerged from the ranks of elected Liberals, New Democrats or the Bloc Quebecois. Local Conservatives may ultimately decide they are publicly behind Russ Hiebert. But if they intend to put out any internal fires, they have first to acknowledge they have seen the smoke.

in schools. Vancouver, with a declining enrolment of 52,000 students, receives about $8.7 million annually through CommunityLINK, while Surrey gets about $3.7 million. Victoria, with onethird the number of students as this district, also receives about $3.7 million. This unfair situation means Surrey must carve out $400,000 from its operating budget to fund things such as meal programs and after-school activities for low-income and inner-city kids. District Supt. Mike McKay says we need a “made-in-Surrey” funding solution. Until then, temporary Band-Aids will have to suffice. That means even more portables; longer school days; online learning; classes outside of regular school hours; and “hybrid” courses (made up of web-based and face-time instruction). These are not long-term fixes. By any study, Surrey’s population – especially its young people – is not going to decrease in the foreseeable future. So how about it, Victoria? Will you finally address the status-quo funding model that has Surrey schools bursting at the seams with no relief in sight? In an editorial board meeting with Peace Arch News and sister-paper The Leader Wednesday, trustees were tightlipped on who they were hoping would win the Liberal leadership vote – and become the next premier – tomorrow (Saturday). But McNally was adamant about one thing: “We’re going to be on the doorstep of whoever is in there.” Surrey is determined to be heard. Paula Carlson is editor of the Surrey Leader.

letters Peace Arch News

Don’t give Bush another chance Editor: Re: Surrey mum on past U.S. presidents’ price tag, Feb. 11. The interest and shock generated from inviting Bill Clinton and George W. Bush as keynote speakers for Surrey’s 2011 Economic Summit may contribute to the event’s success. However, wouldn’t a different choice of speakers potentially offer more? Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts is concerned about having a dialogue and learning from the other half of the equation. Is this supposed to mean that a balance has been achieved by inviting both Clinton and Bush? It seems to me that Clinton and Bush have the same ideological position: markets rather than governments should shape economic development. Where is a Canadian speaker, who accepts the idea of a mixed economy and of something called society? Where is the forwardlooking speaker with something to say about economic reorganization and societal transformation? Bush’s presidency in particular was not marked by any openness to “what works” and “what doesn’t work,” but by a commitment to the agenda of America’s corporate elite. It has already been pointed out that this extreme ideology contributed to the current recession. Watts wants to give Bush a chance to say what went wrong. Does Bush even believe anything went wrong besides a periodic market adjustment? He still seems to be able to make easy money giving speeches. And it is impossible to separate a speaker from his moral character. Why should a politician who promoted lies about Iraq being a military threat and turned a blind eye to terrorism inflicted on civilians and prisoners in America’s “war on terror” be counted on to be truthful or wise about economic issues? Bush’s recently released memoirs show a tendency to whitewash his past actions. Why give him another public-relations opportunity? With Bush forced to cancel as he did in Switzerland, perhaps someone like author and UBC professor Patrick Condon would be available on short notice to take his place. David Anson, White Rock

No inherent tie to their queen Editor: Re: A royal welcome, Feb. 11. Letter-writer Dan Hatcher proclaims he “is a very loyal subject of our queen”; a stance which he has every right to take. But let’s flip the coin over for the viewpoint of a once-loyal subject – me! I have been a Canadian for over 40 years. My total loyalty is to Canada. I carry no other passport. I am certainly of British stock, as good Yorkshire blood courses through the starboard side of my body. In my 20s, I spent some two

years working in the U.K. Many moons ago, I was on a 17-day voyage on a ship holding about 1,100 one-class passengers who were almost entirely Australians, New Zealanders and South Africans, with a smattering of Canucks. When we toasted the queen and sang God Save the Queen, there was a glow of camaraderie of togetherness. The concept of “our” queen united us. But the passage of time has brought enormous global changes, and we Canadians should be flexible enough to duck and weave and change in tune with that changing world. Modern-day Canada has no inherent tie to the queen of another country who deigns to visit about every three years at an immense cost – to us! As an aside, the queen is finally paying taxes on her vast income, but how much ends up in Canadian coffers? Yep, zilch! Not that the queen actually ignores us in the three-year intervals. She sends her children and grandchildren to Canada on their “hols”; again with the resulting huge costs paid for by Canadian taxpayers. I suggest the time is at hand to evaluate the connection between Canada and British royalty. We became a country in 1867. We are a free and sovereign nation. Let us act as if we believed the truth of that. David Poole, Surrey

Editor: Dislike trees that interfere with the monetary value of view investment; form a lobby group to limit their right to thrive on our public land. Hate dogs or skateboarders; form a lobby group to make rules to marginalize them. Have a selfrighteous objection to smokers; form a lobby group to demonize them and limit their rights, too.

The Semiahmoo Band punishes residents by building a chain-link fence around the former park and parking lot and putting up no-trespassing signs at the reserve end of the Little Campbell river footbridge – increasing racial segregation – but still feels free to use White Rock roads, schools, hospitals, etc. without supporting these amenities monetarily. We’ve become a city of narrowminded, selfish, small social enclaves, fighting for power and control, intolerant of ‘the other.’ Our dysfunctional city council and mayor preoccupy themselves with their own power struggles, instead of

Dance photos hardly news Editor: Re: The right moves, Feb. 9. C’mon guys, you were fooled! You gave a front-page ad to Spiral Dance with a flimsy excuse of it being a community event. There are at least four other dance schools in the area that School participate in crunch competitions. They all hold full stage rehearsals for their competitive numbers. I think you can be a little more discerning. Maybe you will consider giving free advertising to: XBa, Essence of Dance, Mi Cher and White Rock School of Music and Dance.

The right moves

Sarah Formosa and Hannah Ricci (right) team for the number Forca at Spiral Dance Studio’s sixth annual solo, duo and trio showcase at Earl Marriott Secondary’s Wheelhouse Theatre, Feb. 6. Organized by parents to allow students aged six to 17 an opportunity to dance their tap, jazz, ballet, hip hop, modern, stage and contemporary numbers in front of a live audience before taking them to regional dance competitions, the show also raises money for a scholarship fund for graduating dancers wishing to pursue a career in dance arts. (Above) Julia Baszo performs Trust Me, (below) Cailyn Andrews dances My Bologna.

At least two Surrey high schools will have extended hours this fall, as part of efforts to deal with ongoing space shortfalls. South Surrey’s Earl Marriott Secondary (EMS) and Cloverdale’s Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary (LTS) will be adopting an alternate schedule beginning this September to address cramped conditions. The concept is being adopted in an effort to ensure students can actually get into their neighbourhood schools and are able to access the courses and programs they need. Like many schools in the district, EMS and LTS are significantly over capacity and have ❝This is the multiple product of portable nobody paying classrooms attention on site to to a rapidly handle student growing overflow. With district.❞ no new school space on the Laurae McNally horizon, and school board chair more residents arriving each month, the schools have opted to extend the school day to accommodate a greater number of students. Although schedule details at the two schools have yet to be ironed out, a newsletter says the amount of instructional time for students will remain the same. But the plan is to have the Grade 8 and 9 students start and end the school day at a different time than the Grade 10-12 students and likely have different lunch breaks. Specific start and end times for the school day haven’t been set, but it’s anticipated the schedule will fall somewhere between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. daily.  see page 4

A world of religion offers a number of beliefs – some close to home – that conflict with human rights, says M. Awan.

Focus on other intolerance, too Editor: Re: ‘Naive to think all cultures compatible,’ Feb. 11. I was appalled by local Christian Heritage Party candidate Mike Schouten’s aforementioned comment. I am an organist for a few local churches. I also attend the Sikh Gurdwara on a regular occasion, and have been to Buddist temples. I have never been to a Mosque, but would love to attend one someday. Schouten talks about Muslim nations as not adhering to the Canadian Constitution and Charter of Rights. Let’s talk about human rights. Is it not true many Christian denominations believe that women cannot be ministers in the church? I thought in Canada, women and men are both equal – yet there can be this inequality within the church? Schouten quotes a dictate from the school of Sharia saying “those who renounce Islam be put to death by the faithful.” Is it not true, that a short while back in history, Ireland’s Christian folk were killing each other off with bombs over who were the true Christians?

History shows that in the past, the Catholic church killed those who they did not deem to be of the true church. This continued until the separation of church and state protected people from the conquests of religion. If Schouten really wants to get into the Canadian Charter of Rights, I suggest that if we limit Muslim immigration into this wonderful country, we also should limit immigration from European “Christian” nations as well, because they also are in contradiction to Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Canada accepts all people, including gay, lesbian, and transgendered individuals. Is it not true that most Christians deem homosexuality to be a dirty, sinful act, that these people have chosen their sexuality and they will not inherit the Kingdom of God? How judgmental. There is a saying in the Holy Bible: “Remove the plank from your own eye, before you remove the speck from your neighbours.” M. Awan, White Rock

Agreements reached during trade mission Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Now back from a trade mission in India, several companies have come back to Surrey with signed agreements. Mayor Dianne Watts, three councillors and 32 delegates returned Monday from an 11-day trip, and several have returned with memorandums of understanding (MOUs) and letters of intention (LOIs). A few days ago, Surrey signed an MOU with the City of Jalandhar to work on sustainability initiatives and emissions reductions. BioLytical Laboratories came back to Surrey armed with a deal with a network of eight hospitals in India. BioLytical will provide the network a 60-second blood test for diagnosing Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). And SFU signed an LOI to develop a joint PhD program and an MOU that could lead to a firm setting up an office in Surrey. In addition, Onux Nexus, a Surrey-based corporate services company, announced Friday it secured the first of what it believes will be a multi-deal trip with one of the

The trip took place Feb. 10-21 and included time in Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore, Chandigarh, Jalandhar, Ludhiana and Amritsar. The city budgeted $128,000 for the trip, which covered elected officials and three staff members. Participating businesses paid their own expenses.

Contributed photo

A photographer shares a few of his photos with a group of young Iraqi children.

Volunteers toured religious sites  from page 11 for meals, clothing, education and medical attention. During the Walk for Life fundraiser, the Canadians marched 30 kilometres each day, nine solid hours of walking each day, with the crowds getting denser by the hour as they approached Karbala. “It’s very hard to describe,” Symons explains. “Behind you, you’ll see thousands of people. In front of you, you’ll see thousands of people, all trying to get to Karbala on this one day. Crowds during Arba’een have grown since 2003 when the 30-year ban of the Shia pilgrimage under Saddam Hussein was lifted. Along the route, there was no shortage of free food: dates, rice, beans, roast meat and tea. “Breakfast of lamb kebabs in roadside stall between Karbala and Najaf. Delicious,” wrote Bromley on his Twitter feed on Jan. 26. At night, Iraqi pilgrims set up tents on the roadside (the Canadians were able to stay overnight at the homes of Al-Hassani’s relatives). Al-Hassani says that although the group didn’t feel threatened at any point, they were still warned to move away from big crowds or town squares during lunchtime. (Five bombs did go off during the pilgrimage at several locations, killing and

wounding dozens.) The shaven-headed, bandanaed Symons was the only one of the group to generate attention from locals – there was curiosity, and lots of photos taken. They arrived through several security checkpoints – with Al-Hassani holding a Canadian flag to lead the way for his group – to a city whose population was an order of magnitude larger than off-holiday size of 500,000. For several days, they toured religious sights and met with locals as well as some of the children CAI sponsors – 133 of the Iraqi children are in Karbala; the rest are spread from Basra to the capital of Baghdad. “Visited 1 ordinary home in Karbala where 50 strangers who had walked from Bagdad slept for free for 3 days,” tweeted Bromley. Before leaving, the Canadians bought Ayaat’s household a three-burner stove and a propane tank. Every child sponsored by Child Aid International is cared for by a team of seven volunteers based in two offices in Iraq. About 90 per cent of donations go to the children, who are provided with monthly cheques (for safety, no cash) as well as occasional gifts.

Yes. One of the most important developments is that common law spouses will soon have the same rights as a married spouse to claim against property, investments, pensions, RRSP’s, RRIF’s, business, professional practices, and indeed any asset that has been used for a family purpose. Before these changes, a common law spouse only had a right to support payments, not property. It is expected that this legislation will be proclaimed in the fall of 2011.

City ramps up hiring due to increasing retirements

Surrey fire crews honoured Black Press

Surrey firefighters were recognized for their long-term service last week, with many having logged more than a quarter century on the job. On Feb. 16, Lt.–Gov. Steven L. Point awarded 154 current and retired members of the Surrey Fire Service with the Federal Exemplary Fire Service and Provincial Long Service Medals.

Forty-six firefighters received medals for 25 years service and 10 were given awards for 35 years on the job. Federal Exemplary Fire Service Medals were given to 60 firefighters with 20 years of service, 36 of them with 30 years on the job, and two who were retired received awards for 40 years of service. Long-serving recipients represent almost one-third of the

AFFORDABLE LUXURY

500-member Surrey fire force. This means firefighters working in Surrey love their jobs, and recruiting has to ramp up in order to replace many who are set to retire. On Monday, Surrey is bringing on 16 new firefighters, half of those to replace people who are retiring. More will be hired in the fall to fill further vacancies due to retirement.

Staff Reporter

Miss Canada brought her message of justice and freedom to South Surrey this week, where she spoke at a private home about modernday slavery. “It was really great to be able to talk so clearly and intimately about the issue,” Tara Teng said. “Everyone was very engaged in the topic.” Teng – who insists she is an abolitionist, not a beauty queen – is using her recent national title to raise awareness about the issue, and gives around half a dozen talks each month. “It’s something I love to do, and I love to talk about what I’m passionate about,” the Langley resident said, noting there are currently 27 million slaves worldwide. “This is wrong and it needs to stop and people’s lives are worth fighting for. It’s something I can’t turn away from.” Teng – who also holds the title of Miss B.C. and is currently studying education at Trinity Western University – was invited to speak by resident Agatha Kube, who hosted more than 30 people in her home Tuesday. “It’s really an opportunity to get the message out,” Kube said. “This is a time in history when we can make a difference.” Teng, 22, took questions from the floor and handed out an ‘abolitionist action list,’ which suggests books, documentaries and ways to help the cause. “It’s a really heavy issue and it’s a really big issue and it’s hard to wrap your head around,” she said. “You have to have the

lifestyles Brent Hambrook helps senior win more than $200,000 at B.C. Court of Appeal

South Surrey lawyer celebrates major victory Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

NEW

When Brent Hambrook stood before B.C. Court of Appeal judges, it was a dream come true for the South Surrey lawyer. Win or lose, nothing could dampen the opportunity to argue a case before the province’s highest court. “You spend hundreds of hours and dream about this your whole life,” the Semiahmoo Secondary alumnus said. “In order to win there, the odds are against you.” Fortunately for Hambrook’s client – a White Rock senior who was appealing a decision that blamed her for money lost on the sale of her home after a purchase contract was breached – ❝In order to he beat those odds. For the senior, the win win there, the odds are was worth more than $200,000. against you.❞ For Hambrook, it Brent Hambrook earned him more than lawyer the thrill of victory. The appeal – which was heard and decided last October – is now cited in the latest version of the Commercial Clearing Housing B.C. Real Estate Law Guide, a publication Hambrook described as reserved for “very significant” cases. As well, it is part of the curriculum being taught to University of Victoria law students. Hambrook is confident it will go further. “Other law schools, as well, will likely teach the case,” he said. “There will probably be many cases that interpret it in the future. It’s a really

Father-son lawyers Alan and Brent Hambrook celebrate Brent’s recent victory. important decision for real estate contracts.” The notch is a proud first for the 29-yearold, who began practising alongside his father, Alan, after graduating from University of B.C. law school in 2008 – the same school his father graduated from 44 years earlier. And while it has become his passion, law was not the junior Hambrook’s first career

choice. One might say he’d initially set his sights higher – thousands of feet higher, to be precise. Hambrook spent about seven years as a pilot – including nearly a year as a flight instructor at the Arizona campus of EmbryRiddle Aeronautical University – before deciding to pursue law. The training at Embry-Riddle, which

included investigating aviation accidents to determine if error played a role, has served him well in the legal realm, he said. “In law, we’re trying to determine negligence,” Hambrook explained. He made the switch to law simply to “try a new challenge.” The call home to share the news “flabbergasted” his dad. But, as evidenced most recently by the appeal court win, it has been a good fit. “I think we get along fairly well,” Hambrook said. He is interested to see how other courts will interpret the appeal court decision, and expects it is a case that “will likely have all kinds of judicial treatment… throughout Canada.” At the least, there are lessons others faced with a similar situation can learn from, he said. Those include: once a real estate deal has been breached, the quicker the home in question is put back on the market, the better. It’s also important to relist at a reasonable price and adjust the price to suit the market, he said. Demonstrating an effort to mitigate any damages caused by a contract breach is key, Hambrook said. “You can’t just sit back and let your damages accumulate,” he said. Hambrook is confident his client’s effort to mitigate her damages played a key role in the court victory. Now, as the process of actually collecting on the judgment progresses, he feels similarly confident it, too, will end well. “It looks really good that we’ll be able to get everything back,” he said.

news Dispute over fees to treat effluent may leave taxpayers on the hook

Metro vs. Coquitlam in sewage battle Jeff Nagel Black Press

Metro Vancouver is embroiled in a dispute with Coquitlam because the city has so far refused to pay the region $211,700 to cover sewage treatment costs rung up by a local industry. Metro charges cities for the cost of treating industrial effluent at its treatment plants, and the cities, following the polluterpay principle, typically charge

the costs back to the industries responsible. Catalyst Paper closed its plant in Coquitlam last spring and was supposed to pay $423,000 last year for sewage treatment but paid the city only half on the basis that it didn’t use a full year’s worth of service. That leaves either the City of Coquitlam or Metro Vancouver out the difference; and the city has adopted Catalyst’s position and

only remitted what it received. Surrey Coun. Marvin Hunt, who sits on Metro’s finance committee, said Catalyst and Coquitlam are in the wrong because the $423,000 is actually for treatment the company used in 2009, billed in 2010. “They’re paying for the pollution they put in the previous year,” Hunt said. “It’s the same principle we use in charging property taxes.”

A new surgery-free, non-invasive technique gets rid of unwanted fat! Even if you’ve endured never-ending marathon workouts, you probably have pockets of plump that won’t budge. And while going under the knife may be tempting, the pain is not! Now you don’t have to. Thanks to Zeltiq a new surgery-free FDA approved technique is available and New Beauty Institute is pleased to have been chosen to be able to offer the treatment.

The breakthrough new way to SCULPT YOUR BODY! How it works: As temperatures plunge, fat cells freeze long before muscle, skin or any other tissue does! Zeltiq Coolsculpting takes advantage of this by chilling fat deposits to around 45 degrees. “Damaged, frozen fat cells can’t be repaired by the body, so they’re smoothing out even stubborn fat pads within two to four months” says dermatologist Mark S. Nestor, M.D., Director of the Center for Cosmetic Enhancement in Miami, Florida. And specific troublespots can be easily targeted! What to expect: Zeltiq Coolsculpting takes about one hour per treated area. Since no anaesthetics, needles, or incisions are needed you can head back to your normal activities right away; there is no downtime. Treated areas tend to look red and feel a bit stiff for about 20 minutes, and some patients experience temporary bruising, numbness, or tenderness.

What studies show: “Zeltiq removes 20% - 25% of the fat from treated areas, but patients say their troublespots actually shrink 40% - 50%.” “It’s producing better results than the research had predicted. Patients love it!” The catch: If you’re obese, you will not be happy with this treatment, notes Caree Ludwar, owner of New Beauty Institute. “It’s meant for people who are close to their ideal body weight and want to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat - the sort of thing that wrecks the way clothing fits. However, we have had very good results with larger belly areas on some patients.”

An estimated 40 per cent of waste produced in Metro Vancouver is organic and a prime target for diversion as the region aims to improve its recycling rate.

Tougher recycling rules eyed to meet Metro targets Jeff Nagel Black Press

Metro Vancouver plans to toughen enforcement of garbagedisposal bans and recycling rules for both residents and businesses to help reach its goal of significantly cutting the waste stream. Beefed-up regulations on what can’t be tossed in the trash and what recycling amenities developers must provide when new buildings go up are big parts of the vision laid out in the region’s new Zero Waste Challenge strategy. The document is Metro’s latest road map for reaching its new target of recycling 70 per cent of waste by 2015 – up from 55 per cent now – and 80 per cent by 2020. Front and centre is the push to get organic waste, including kitchen scraps, out of the garbage and into compost bins. The region aims to ban organic food waste from disposal by single family homes by the end of 2012, coinciding with the deadline for all Metro cities to introduce curbside pickup of all organics. In most cities, that will mean cutting garbage collection to every two weeks to save costs and help pay for more frequent weekly pickup of compostable organics. Organics account for an estimated 40 per cent of all Metro garbage and diverting 265,000 tonnes of it is expected

Recyclables are sorted on a conveyor belt. to get the region half way to the 70 per cent recycling target. Nobody expects it will be easy. “We’ve taken the bulk of the low-hanging fruit and made a great effort at getting 55 per cent,” Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said. “From this point on, gains are very, very expensive and difficult to attain.” He backs the planned disposal bans and the strategy’s emphasis on greater regulation, including more pressure on businesses to comply. “We need to get on with it, because it’s time,” added White Rock Coun. MaryWade Anderson, who also sits on Metro’s waste-management committee. Many recyclables – including everything that can go in a blue box – are already banned from transfer stations. But large amounts still get through. Increased fines, tightened enforcement at transfer stations and ticketing of garbage ban violators by local cities are all envisioned to ensure better compliance. Metro will press cities to pass co-ordinated bylaws requiring new

multi-family and commercial buildings have ample space for recycling, along with requirements for improved waste handling by existing buildings, potentially through on-site or neighbourhood composting or collection. Business licence renewals would require proof of adequate recycling or pickup arrangements for organics and other recyclables by 2013, the paper says. “We want to bring in the private sector and the multi-family residents or building owners,” said Metro waste committee chair Greg Moore, Port Coquitlam’s mayor. “We’re in this together. So how can we achieve this together?” He expects more ideas will emerge at a Zero Waste conference Metro will host March 10 in Burnaby. Multi-family condos and apartments are a major recycling and composting problem area because most were built without recycling facilities and wasteful sins get anonymized in a common dumpster.

The result: a multifamily recycling rate of just 16 per cent that Metro planners say must go up sharply. So far, Metro is using Fraser Richmond Soil and Fibre as its regional composting facility but the region also expects to award a contract this year to build a regional biofuels processing plant that would also take organics next to Surrey’s transfer station. Metro’s overall recycling rate of 55 per cent is something of a misnomer. The number is elevated by the high recycling rate of the construction industry, at 76 per cent. Businesses recycle 44 per cent on average, but generate the most waste overall – 1.2 million tonnes per year. Single-family homes have a 46 per cent recycling rate and generate 800,000 tonnes of garbage. Metro Vancouver is still awaiting provincial approval of its draft solid waste management plan, which could allow construction of a new waste-to-energy plant in the region. The region will also continue to press the provincial and federal governments to make product makers and retailers responsible for takeback programs. “We know to get beyond 70 per cent will be difficult, especially if products are made the way they are made today,” Metro spokesman David Hocking said.

news TransLink to offer phone app for bus passengers

Next bus just a click away Todd Coyne Black Press

Wondering where your next bus actually is, rather than where it’s supposed to be? Well, now there’s an app for that. TransLink is preparing to roll out a new mobile phone website that will allow bus riders to see their buses’ precise distance and arrival time to their stop using real-time GPS technology. TransLink fitted all of its buses with GPS tracking devices in 2006, both to quickly locate buses in the event of an emergency and to keep the buses from unnecessarily bunching up along their routes. But now, TransLink plans to allow the public to tap into its Transit Management and Communications, or TMAC, system via mobile website to be launched by the end of the year. TransLink spokesperson Drew Snider told Black Press the realtime tracking feature could be rolled out by October, first as a text message relay system where riders can text the posted Next Bus numbers already displayed at bus stops and immediately get a reply saying where their bus is and when it’s due at their stop according its current location, rather than its regularly scheduled stop time, which is given now. After a trial phase, which could be limited at first to the City of Vancouver, the text message service could be rolled into a mobile website for smart phones or the two could operate in tandem to service the needs of more riders. Cam Telford, TransLink’s expert on the Next Bus “2.0” system, said the real-time program has been approved by the TransLink board and gone through all of the necessary channels. All that’s left is to work out a few of the program’s remaining kinks. One such kink, he said,

What’s your excuse now?

A new mobile phone website will allow bus riders to see their buses’ precise distance and arrival time using GPS technology. is how to tell the system not to broadcast a bus’ location when that bus has been redirected back to the beginning of a route to meet higher demand there. “People would see their bus getting farther away from them and so that’s obviously something we’re trying to figure out right now,” Telford said. The service would likely be of greatest benefit to suburban Metro Vancouver communities where bus service is less frequent than in downtown Vancouver and passengers rely more on connections with other

buses and SkyTrain. Telford said TransLink looked at the possibility of having a graphic map-based mobile site where riders could watch their bus travel along its route in real-time but decided such a site would be far too confusing to follow and too data-heavy for most smart phones to handle. Telford said TransLink’s chief sources of inspiration on the revamped Next Bus system were Seattle and Portland, which he said are considered to be at the forefront of accurate transit tracking systems.

Earl Marriott Secondary presents Romeo and Juliet

Timeless tragedy in black and white Alex Browne

T

Arts Reporter

here’s only one trouble with Romeo and Juliet – everyone knows it in one guise or another. The iconic familiarity of the tale is both a blessing and a curse, admit members of Earl Marriott Secondary’s theatre company. While they work hard to bring Shakespeare’s original to the stage of the Wheelhouse Theatre (March 9-12, 7:30 performances), an animated take-off, Gnomeo and Juliet, is playing less than a mile down the road at the local fourplex. It underlines the fact that Romeo and Juliet has been adapted, reworked, lampooned and bowdlerized over more than four centuries, resurfacing in everything from Warner Brothers’ cartoon parodies to Broadway’s West Side Story. But while revisiting the play is inevitably a challenge, it’s well worth the struggle, said student lead Erik Kavanaugh – if only to remind audiences the Bard established our own template for dramas about star-crossed love, “Just about any love story, any film these days is based on something from Romeo and Juliet,” added the young actor, who plays Romeo to fellow Grade 12 Marika Stanger’s Juliet in drama teacher and director Candace Radcliffe’s re-imagined, Contributed photo black-and-white themed version of the play. Erik Kavanaugh and Marika Stanger portray the iconic star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet in Earl Marriott Secondary theatre As varied as contemporary versions may company’s production of the classic love story, coming to the Wheelhouse Theatre March 9. be, the basic plot is easy to summarize. they’re enjoying this foray into more serious focus on what the person is thinking and largely 20th century-style garb. “The boy and girl want to be together, territory. make it real,” Stanger said. “I thought, since we are using black and but they can’t be – their parents don’t want The actors are in the age range of the Another challenge, they say, is conveying white photography and black and white them to be together,” Kavanaugh said. characters they play – Kavanaugh, at 17, the meaning underlying Shakespeare’s film in the show, that black and white “People need to know where this originally is exactly the same age as Romeo, while poetic Elizabethan language, rather would give it a classic, timeless feel,” said came from and that Shakespeare created Stanger, also 17, is only a few years older than simply offering a recitation.

A MESSAGE TO ALL RESIDENTS & BUSINESS OWNERS

Do you have a storm drain on or in front of your property? It is important to keep it clear, especial especially during melting conditions. Blocked storm drains may result in excess accumulation of water along the road area, a situation that could become dangerous if it subsequently freezes. It also helps reduce the potential for flooding of adjacent properties depending on the extent of the blocka blockage along with the amount of melting snow and rain fall.

If this sounds too much to bear, note also that successive scenes jump back and forth in time, as we’re encouraged to sort out the stage play’s creative timeline. (I must admit to an initial suspicion Post borrowed a memento from film director Christopher Nolan’s breakout piece, before learning that Post’s script preceded Nolan’s by more than a decade.) Likely, all this makes Earth and Sky sound more complicated than it really is. In truth, it is a character study disguised as a romantic whodunnit.

However, the trip is not without its complications. Dialogue is overwritten and somewhat indulgent, in what seems to be an attempt to provide on-the-nose literary commentary on our all-toohuman need for greed. To be fair to the Chicago

playright, perhaps audience members who are more well-versed in the work of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas would get more from the onslaught of verbiage. But to be more fair to the audience, a play should trust its actors to convey emotions and plot points, ending dialogue – and perhaps some scenes – early.

Jason Dedrick brings a desperate seriousness to his role as boyfriend David Ames, a struggling restaurateur who seems set on shaking his armour for amour. Ben Odberg offers an intense portrayal of lead detective H.E. Weber, subtly trying to parry and thrust his way through his investigation and, oh-sohopefully, into Sarah’s bed. Mike Busswood, as fellow officer Sgt. Al Kersnowski, provides both comic relief and theme, as he spares a moment with our heroine to note one can’t know what’s inside a neighbourhood building from the facade. Supporting cast includes Kelly regulars Kait Busswood, Aaron Elliott, Colleen Bignell, Andrew LeBlanc, and the director himself, in supporting roles, each character revealing a secret or two by final curtain.

New author promotes anti-bullying message Jennifer Lang Black Press

If you’ve ever set an idea aside only to wonder, ‘What if?’ then you might take new inspiration from Paula Kolins. The Cloverdale author says her new children’s book, Turtle Has 3 Legs, was originally a story she wrote for her son to share with his kindergarten class at Martha Currie Elementary during show and tell. He’s 18 now, she says with a laugh, holding a copy of her new book – her first. “It’s always been in the back of my mind,” she says, explaining friends at the time encouraged her to have it published but she set the notion aside. Kolins says the rise in bullying awareness and anti-bullying initiatives like Pink Shirt Day convinced her it was time to pick up her manuscript again. So she took a local course on how to get published. Her instructor owned a publishing company, so after the course wrapped up, she submitted a manuscript for a children’s book for young readers. “I just thought, you know what? People always say they’re going to do things and they never do, and I just really thought to myself if I don’t do this, I probably never will,” she says. “So, I just went for it.” To her delight, the story was accepted. Just last week, Turtle Has 3 Legs became available for pre-sale on Amazon.ca. “I cried when I saw it,” says Kolins, a familiar face to patients of the Apple Medical Centre, where she works as the office manager. “It’s one of those things, if you don’t try it,” she says, “it will never be.” She says working with an illustrator on the book’s pictures took longer than she thought. She wanted the images to be realistic but kid-friendly – not cartoonish. “So we kind of went back and forth with that.” She may have written the story many years ago, but the creative

Cloverdale author Paula Kolins with her book, Turtle Has 3 Legs. memory remains fresh. When her sons were younger, she was “That mom!” – the parent who was always volunteering and getting involved at her kids’ school. (She blames it on separation anxiety – hers). Turtle Has 3 Legs is a story about a “sweet little turtle” who’s different because he only has three legs and finds acceptance from a bossy beaver, a preening swan and other creatures with classroom alter egos. Kolins was inspired by one of his classmates, a child with Down syndrome. He wasn’t bullied or teased, but she couldn’t bear to think that might change as he got older. “He was just a sweetheart,” she says. “That just got me thinking.” She hopes the book will remind parents to encourage their chil-

dren to make friends with other children with disabilities or differences. “That is really the first step, accepting people, and teaching your kids to accept people.” She aimed the story at young readers, she says, because “I think you have to start early. When your kids are in Grade 6 or 7 and being targeted, it’s not too late, but it’s almost as if you’ve missed a golden opportunity when they were little.” Now, it’s her job to market her book. She’s going to try to get it into book stores and school libraries, and will sell it herself at swap meets and other venues. But first she plans to give a copy of the book – which is dedicated to teachers – to her son’s former kindergarten teacher.

Effort benefits young patients at B.C. Children’s Hospital

Cassidy’s Craft Campaign returns It’s been more than a year since Cloverdale’s Cassidy Briggs passed away, but her legacy and spirit remain strong. This week marked the kick off of the 2nd Annual Cassidy’s Craft Campaign at Surrey’s George Greenaway Elementary, where Cassidy attended school. It was Cassidy’s dream to make life better for young patients at B.C. Children’s Hospital. During her many stays, she noticed there was little for kids to do and came up with a plan to raise money to buy arts and crafts supplies for

VISUALIZE YOUR DREAM…

the hospital. The campaign was launched last year and resulted in a craft area filled with supplies being created at the hospital. Now, the school and her family want to keep Cassidy’s dream alive by donating money to replenish and bolster the kids’ art area. Cassidy was diagnosed with a rare liver cancer before her eighth birthday in 2008 and despite a brave battle, died on Jan. 11, 2010. Prior to her death, her beguiling smile and selfless nature rallied

her school and the surrounding community to raise thousands of dollars to help her get treatment. Also helping with the craft campaign this year is Michigan author Johnathan Rand, who is visiting a dozen Surrey schools, beginning with George Greenaway Elementary this week. This year’s campaign runs until March 2. Donations can be made directly to B.C. Children’s Hospital – Cassidy’s Craft Campaign, or contact George Greenaway Elementary at 604-576-1136 for further information.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

White Rock Christian looks to rebound at Valleys after tough loss last week

Still seeking their best game Nick Greenizan

A

Sports Reporter

s John Dykstra sees it, his White Rock Christian Academy Warriors have yet to play their best basketball, and he knows, too, that they are running out of time if they hope to do so. Tonight (Friday) may be a good time to start that ascension if the Warriors, who for the first time in years were unranked provincially throughout the senior boys basketball season, hope to secure a spot at provincial championships for a 12th consecutive season. WRCA, the sixth seed, will face off against No. 27 L.A. Matheson tonight at White Rock Christian in the first round of 32-team Fraser Valley Championships. “This season, we haven’t won a game yet that we weren’t supposed to win. We’ve been close, but haven’t upset anybody, and from a coaching standpoint, that can be disappointing. But that also hopefully means that we haven’t peaked yet, either,” Dykstra said. And the veteran coach is blunt when asked if the reverse is true – that his team has lost games they should have won. “I think we have, but then again I believe we should win every single basketball game that we play, and I mean that wholeheartedly.” White Rock will need to win their next two games if they hope to nab one of the eight Fraser Valley seeds at provincials, which are set for March 15-19 at the Langley Events Centre. The other Peninsula entry into Fraser Valleys – No. 31 Earl Marriott Secondary – will face second-ranked Pitt Meadows in a first-round tilt Friday (see sidebar). And though, based on the rankings, WRCA is considered the clear favourite against Matheson, Dykstra said his team will have to rebound strong from a bitter defeat a week ago, when WRCA lost the Fraser Valley Southwest division title to the Tamanawis Wildcats, 81-63. It was the first time in more than

in the face,” said Dykstra, of last Friday’s tilt. “They’re a very, very talented team, and they just hammered

us, no doubt about it. Hopefully though, we’ve learned from that.” Like his coach, Will Ondrik,  see page 47

Earl Marriott to play No. 2 Pitt Meadows

Mariners return to Valleys After a lengthy absence from Fraser Valley basketball championships, the Earl Marriott Mariners are finally back – but their return has not been met with much kindness by the tournament organizing committee, which has matched 31st-seeded EMS against the No. 2-ranked Pitt Meadows Marauders. “It’s going to be tough, for sure,” said Mariners senior boys coach Sean Stewart. “It’s a tough draw, and we’re a low seed, but we didn’t perform that well in the Southwest (tournament). But we got in the Fraser Valleys, which hasn’t happened at Earl Marriott in a long time, and that’s the important thing.” At the Fraser Valley Southwest championships last week, Earl Marriott opened with a win over Semiahmoo, but then lost three straight – to Tamanawis, South Delta and Sullivan Heights. “We’ve been playing some of our best basketball lately, but we just didn’t play enough of it last week,” Stewart said. “We just want to go out there now and finish the season strong, and this is basketball, so who knows – if we play well, an upset is always possible.” If the Mariners are to have a chance against Pitt Meadows, they’ll have to play strong defence and not turn the ball over, Stewart said. “You know that a good team like that is going to score, so you don’t want to give them any extra opportunities,” he said. “We need to take care of the ball, and also be strong on our glass. We can’t give them any second-chance points.” - Nick Greenizan

Ten members of the Pacific Sea Wolves Swim Club – seven of which were first-time competitors – were in Kamloops last weekend, competing at the Western Canadian Short Course Championships. Katie Caldwell, 16, pulled in the best results, winning both the 200and 400-m individual medley events, breaking the provincial record in the 200 IM (girls 15-17 division) along the way. Caldwell also competed in the women’s 16-and-over division, placing seventh in the 50 backstroke and ninth in the 200 back. Also in the 16-and-over competition, Olivvya Chow, 16, was 13th in the 200 IM. In the men’s 17-and-over division, Thomas Rae, 19, finished 15th in the 50 butterfly, while Edwin Zhao, in the under-16 division, was 12th in 1,500 freestyle. This weekend, a handful of current and former PSW swimmers will be in the spotlight at CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) championships, which are to be held in Calgary. Hilary Caldwell will be at the competition representing the University of Victoria, while Jy Lawrence (University of Calgary), Lynnaea Mulligan (McMaster University) and Kimberly Bowman (UBC) will also take part. - Nick Greenizan

Post-season begins In the middle Bayside Sharks’ Sinon Davey gets caught between a pair of Abbotsford tacklers during a minirugby contest earlier this month at South Surrey Athletic Park.

Team improving  from page 45 WRCA’s senior guard/ forward who is in his first year at the school after moving to the Peninsula from Vernon, is cautiously optimistic that his team has enough to advance. “We got a really good draw, we’re pretty happy with it,” he said. “If we keep playing how we’ve been playing, I think we’ll take care of business.” It’s been an up-anddown season for the Warriors, who finished in the middle of the Fraser Valley Southwest pack during the regular season, thanks in part to a pair of leaguegame losses in midDecember. Dykstra figures the early struggles were due, in part, to the fact it took awhile for his players – many of whom were senior squad rookies – to adjust to the spotlight thrust upon WRCA, which has had one of the province’s most

successful hoops programs over the past decade – as evidenced by the many team photos, championship banners and retired jerseys hanging in the school’s gym. “I think they’re beginning to understand how talented they are, and are learning that they don’t have to live up to what anybody else has done here in the past,” he said, standing in the centre of his team’s locker room. “The Tyrell Maras, the Chad Cliffords, Riley Barkers and Kyle Wilsons (all former WRCA stars) – these guys finally realized they don’t have to be those folks. They just have to go out and be themselves. “You look around this room at these walls, and it can be intimidating, but now they’re used to it and I know they’re going to perform well this week.”

For Neil, his tally was a team-high 20th. Kootenay replied with a tying goal three minutes into the final frame, and the winner with eight minutes to play.

I regret leaving when I did, but you said we’d meet again and I believed that. I am devastated and cry for you every day; it’s all so very sad. I hope your last few years were happy ones. I still miss you and think of you often. Lovingly remembered, Emily (nee Arcon)James and son Ryan, Hamilton,Ont. emarcon2@aol.com “Wish you Were Here”

COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS

The family is extremely grateful to Semiahmoo House Society for taking Denis into their care for the last ten years, and to the staff of Rose Smith House in Ocean Park for their devotion and hard work. A celebration of Denis, open to the public, will take place at Victory Memorial Park, 14831 -28th Ave., Surrey on Saturday, March 5th from 3 - 5 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: Semiahmoo House Society www.semi-house-society.com 15306 - 24 Ave. Surrey, BC V4A 2J1.

Mothers are a gift… Elley as most people knew her passed peacefully on Saturday February 19th after a 4 year battle with cancer. We were lucky to have her healthy and happy for most of that time and she will be dearly missed by her family and friends but remembered for her spunky spirit. With her son, daughter and sister by her side she left this earth to be together again with her husband and true love Max. She leaves behind 2 children, Brad Bulycz (Deanna), Lori Prince (Gary) and 4 grandchildren Spencer, Mathew, Jared and Rhiannon as well as her sister Leah Holloway and many nieces and nephews and dear friends. Her love for the game of golf kept her young and active and she made many friends in her golfing community. She loved to travel with her buds and had many great experiences. I don’t think she knew how many people she affected in her life with her generosity and giving spirit. I know she will be missed by the many who had the pleasure of knowing her! No flowers by request but donations can be made to the Variety Club. Gathering of her friends and family will be held Monday February 28th from 1-4 at Chateau Cargill.

Anna Kristina Boutique The fashion forecast for spring is in! “This season, expect to see a lot of nude shades, creams and camels,” says Anna, owner of Anna Kristina Boutique in Semiahmoo Shopping Centre. “White is also big, as is gold. Everyone should have a wide belt and at least two pairs of brightly coloured shoes in their closet, too.” Anna Kristina Anna knows what she’s talking about. With over 45 years in the fashion industry, she’s seen practically every trend come and go — in some cases, more than once! Though she keeps an eye on what’s big on the runways, she also has the talent to spot what flies a little bit under the radar so her clients will be in style, but not a carbon copy of everyone else. “I choose my pieces very carefully,” says Anna. “I travel a lot and bring back what my clients won’t find anywhere else.” Anna’s demographic is women over 30 who are looking to dress a bit edgy, yet tasteful. “Women in their 60s don’t need to dress like their mothers did,” says Anna. “My clothing is comfortable and for women who like to stand out in a crowd. My clients look just as trendy as their daughters, yet age-appropriate.” Anna is particularly fond of jewellery, especially designing one-of-a-kind pieces for her stores. She recently returned from the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show, the largest of its kind in North America. You can hear the excitement in her voice as she talks about the treasures she discovered there. “I found some absolutely gorgeous stones,” says Anna, with her slight Czech accent. “I can hardly wait to get started designing. I’m so inspired.” When you shop at Anna Kristina Boutique, expect to leave with a complete outfit, head to toe. Of course, you can always purchase separates, but why waste time driving from mall to mall when you can find everything you need in one place? At Anna Kristina Boutique, you can find the perfect dress with shoes and accessories to match! Anna Kristina Boutique also carries fashion to dress up your home. Stop by and have a look at the eye-pleasing selection of decorative accents to add that special touch to your surroundings. Visit Anna Kristina Boutique in the Semiahmoo Shopping Centre, located near the Customer Service Kiosk. Though the weatherman might be predicting spring showers, it’s always bright at Anna Kristina Boutique!

Dan Higgins As part of a nation-wide network, customers reap the benefits of competitive pricing, warranties and new stock in store daily. But because Canadian Tire at South Point is locally owned, there’s a vested interest and commitment to the community you may not find with most national store chains. “We have a passion for where we live and do business,” owner Dan Higgins said. “Giving back to the community is important, and great customer service is a part of that approach.” With springtime just around the corner, now is a great time to update your patio furniture for those times of relaxation in the backyard. From barbecues to hammocks, lounger chairs and kiddie pools – Canadian Tire has everything to make sure you enjoy your summer to its fullest. With camping season on the horizon, Canadian Tire has a huge selection of everything you could possibly need to enjoy the great outdoors this summer. If you’re a full-on greenthumb or picking up gardening tools for the first time, Canadian Tire has all the essentials you’ll need for a beautiful garden, including lighting and other decor accessories. Whether your car needs minor maintenance or a larger repair, Canadian Tire is well-known for it’s huge automotive department, including a 10-bay repair centre with sophisticated equipment and experienced, reliable mechanics. With a combination of competitive pricing and friendly, knowledgeable staff, it’s no surprise Peninsula residents turn to Canadian Tire time and time again over the past 10 years. And the loyalty certainly goes both ways – South Point Canadian Tire is proud to be heavily involved in the White Rock/South Surrey community. Through their Jump Start program, they provide kids who normally can’t afford to participate in organized sports a chance to take part – just one of many organizations South Point Canadian Tire has partnered with to help make a difference. For everything you need under one roof, complete with honest prices and friendly faces, visit Canadian Tire at South Point Exchange today.

Sandcastle Fitness Club Do you long for a warm and welcoming fitness centre that offers all of your favourite fitness activities under one, convenient roof? Well, dream no more. At Sandcastle Fitness, you’ll get all that plus the most knowledgeable trainers, the latest fitness equipment, ultra-friendly staff and much more. What separates you from other clubs? Natalie Dunnill “We are focused on keeping our current members happy as opposed to focusing on always bringing in new members. It is really important to us to have member feedback so we can offer the best service possible and product to those who are already here.” Why don’t you do prepaid memberships? “We keep things very simple. We do not have a contract and do not take prepaid memberships. There was a time, which a lot of our current members will recall, when the club that was here before was selling prepaid memberships, then they started offering free time added on to the year, if someone prepaid. That was the sign that something was wrong and so many people lost a lot of money. There is no risk when someone joins us. They pay for the time they are here – end of story!” I don’t feel comfortable in all the current fitness attire: “Sandcastle Fitness is about as casual and comfortable as a gym gets. Something as simple as dress keeps a lot of people from coming in to join. They are nervous enough not knowing what to expect without being self conscious about what to wear. This is really an everybody gym. We cater to seniors and teens to families and to the most elite athletes. If you come in whatever makes you comfortable, you will fit right in.”

K&D Furniture & Appliance Centre Does your home need a makeover or that little something to give it a fresh, new look? If so, the experts at your local K&D Furniture and Appliance Centre have all the latest home décor furnishings and accessories — not to mention, the Peninsula’s guaranteed lowest prices! Owners Henry and Allyson Chenier say, this spring, “neutral colours and simple Henry Chenier sophistication” are leading the way in 2011 home fashions. However, those who love bright colour will appreciate the rainbow of jewel-toned fabrics popping up on accessories such as throw cushions, window treatments and accent chairs. Whether you like warm, traditional prints, vintage-inspired looks or the sleekness of contemporary lines, K&D’s showroom is chock-full of affordable sofas, bedroom and dining room furniture, entertainment units, lighting, pictures, accessories, mattress sets, appliances and more! “We are part of a 450 store buying group, which gives us better buying power than some of the so-called “big-box” stores,” said Henry. “Yet it still gives us the flexibility of purchasing for our own customers’ needs.” Tucked in off King George Boulevard and 148th Street, K&D Furniture offers easy credit terms, along with FREE warranty registration, friendly, knowledgeable service and professional delivery. Add that to a great selection of reasonably priced furniture and it’s easy to understand why K&D has been a Peninsula favourite for over 39 years. “I believe our success comes from our commitment to do more than the others do,” said Henry. “One example is that we like to unpack and check everything ourselves before it goes out for delivery. That way, furniture doesn’t arrive in a box and there is no garbage left behind.” “We also take the time to educate staff on each product we sell,” said Allyson. “By doing so, it ensures that we can help our customers make an informed choice so they will be happy with their purchase over the long term.” “We are honoured to have been here for so many years,” Henry said. “There is a great deal of satisfaction in dealing with long-time customers. Many of them will often stop by just to say hello. That’s pretty special.” K&D — making houses feel like homes since 1972. For store hours, visit www.kdfurniture.com.

Cartridge World

OF

To 10 ne O or rR F efi F ll*

When your printer ink is running low, do you high-tail it to the nearest big box office supply store and then cringe every time you pay the bill? If so, you should check out your local Cartridge World at 12-3189 King George Boulevard. For about half of what it costs to buy new, Cartridge World — the world’s fastest growing ink refilling retailer — can refill or remanufacture 95 per cent of inkjet and laser toner cartridges using top-quality, brand-specific ink and toners.

In

Mike Kitchen

Operating more than 1,700 locations in 45 countries, Cartridge World keeps money IN your pocket and hundreds of millions of empty printer cartridges OUT of landfills every year. This proactive solution to waste reduction is a win-win for consumers, entrepreneurs and the environment.

k

F

Don’t Overpay On Your Ink and Toner This Year. Your local Cartridge World can show you a smarter way to print in 2011. Reduce costs on every page you print and help make our community “greener.” Drop by or call today and see how much you can save.

Frequently Asked Questions: Q: Is there a risk to using a refilled cartridge? Not at all! There should be no difference in the print quality after the cartridge is refilled. Our 100% money back satisfaction guarantee is a sign of our confidence and removes any risk from you trying our services. Q: How much money will I save by refilling? Your savings may vary depending on your printer. As a rule of thumb, you can expect to save up to 50 per cent on refills at Cartridge World, compared to the cost of a brand new cartridge. In fact, Peninsula businesses and residents are saving hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars every year by making the switch. And they especially like the fact that they are helping to protect the future of our environment. Q: Will using refilled cartridges void the printer manufacturer’s warranty? No. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act prohibits the printer manufacturer from voiding the warranty. Printer manufacturers will almost always advise you against refilling because they want you to keep buying their expensive replacement cartridges and accessories. You can feel confident that cartridges sold, refilled or remanufactured by Cartridge World will meet or exceed your expectations. Our own warranty also extends to your printer on any valid claim!

South Surrey/White Surrey/White Rock George Blvd. 3189 3189 King King George Highway South Surrey, BC V4P 1B8 South Surrey, BC V4P1B8 www.cartridgeworld.ca

Q: Is cartridge refilling and remanufacturing the only service Cartridge World provides? No. Cartridge World is a one-stop shop! In addition to a printer/fax/copier repair service, we stock a full selection of new and compatible ink and laser cartridges, copier toners, fax and postage meter supplies, specialty paper and labels. For more information, please visit www.cartridgeworld.com.

BIG GARY’S

Big Gary’s Vacuums If you’re starting to hear the rockin’ robins go “tweet,” “tweet,” it’s a good sign that spring is near. For many of us, that means spring cleaning — the perfect way to rid our homes of the winter blahs and make way for the warmer days ahead. When it comes to whipping our homes Dee Dee and Ruth into spring shape, there is one central tool that is of particular importance: the vacuum. Arguably one of the hardest working appliances in our homes, it makes sense to have a quality machine (in good working order) that can handle the tough jobs over the long term. “A vacuum cleaner is a very important tool in keeping the house clean and healthy — especially when it comes to removing dust particles that can cause sickness and allergies,” says Ruth, manager of Big Gary’s Vacuums in South Surrey. “That’s why, in addition to having a good quality vacuum, it’s important to have it cleaned and serviced on a regular basis.” Located at 15355 24th Avenue in Peninsula Village (also in Langley at 19638 Fraser Highway), Big Gary’s has been the Peninsula’s ‘go-to’ full-service vacuum sales, service and repair shop since 1965. Offering top-of-the-line units from Miele, CycloVac, Sebo, Simplicity, Electrolux, Dyson, Panasonic and Samsung, you won’t find any “disposable” vacuums at Big Gary’s. “People don’t always recognize all of the brand names we sell because they are higher-end brands that you won’t find at most department or chain stores,” said Ruth. “We are a specialty dealer — we do one thing, and we do it well.” In addition to on-site repairs, Big Gary’s certified technicians also handle “house calls” for central vacuum systems. Whether you need repairs, a service or installation, they are a quick phone call away. “It’s important to keep everything in good running order,” advises Ruth. “It’s like getting maintenance on your car. We strip the vacuum down, clean it out, change the filter and sanitize it. You will definitely see a big difference in performance.” After being in the community for so long, Ruth says it’s “wonderful” to see second generation customers coming into Big Gary’s for their vacuum needs. “It’s a nice compliment. It really makes us feel great.” For more information or to book a Big Gary’s “house call,” phone 604-531-7614.

Semiahmoo Wellness Centre

New Year’s Resolution: Lose 6-9 inches in 2 weeks!

“Doctor, Doctor, give me the news. I’ve got a bad case of lovin’ you!” If there were a theme song for Semiahmoo Wellness Centre & Laser Body Sculpting, this would definitely be it, say the happy patients of Dr. Bill Russell (a.k.a. “Dr. Bill”), a South Surrey naturopathic physician offering homeopahty, naturopathy, alternative medicine and cutting-edge Bill Russell anti-aging therapy. Offering an integrative approach to health care by using sound, rational and whole-body diagnosis, Dr. Bill and his team look at personal factors, including lifestyle, diet and environmental issues that may be impacting an individual’s health and well being. In addition to offering applied kinisiology, one of Dr. Bill’s passions, Semiahmoo Wellness Centre & Laser Body Sculpting is the first clinic in Western Canada to offer the Zerona Laser, a new and exciting way to get rid of excessive fat in a quick, safe and effective manner. Recently featured on The Doctors, it zaps away fat without bruising, scarring, surgery or pain. “Effectively, it is a non-invasive lipo treatment,” said Dr. Bill. “It consists of a FDA-approved, low-level laser that emulsifies (liquefies) fat within the fat cell, with no pain or discomfort. Your natural detoxification system eliminates the fat from your body. There is no need for needles or incisions, and there is zero recovery time.” To aid in the detoxification process, the clinic specializes in infrared sauna treatments and nutritional supplements. Medically-supervised detoxification not only helps rid the body of toxic chemicals and unwanted fat, says Dr. Bill, it can lead to clearer skin, increased energy and concentration, improved digestion and more. The clinic also offers food intolerance testing, natural anti-aging hormone therapy and homeopathic chelation therapy, which rids the body of damaging mercury and heavy metal toxins. “Chelation has also been used for over 50 years to treat angina, high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis and other cardiovascular problems,” said Dr. Bill. For more information about these and other services at Semiahmoo Wellness Centre and Laser Body Sculpting, visit www.askdoctorbill.com. For information about the Zerona Laser, visit www.laserbodysculpting.ca.

We all have those times when we aren’t as disciplined about our diet and exercise. When I did ZERONA, I hadn’t been taking care of myself, my jeans were too tight and I just didn’t feel great. Well, I did ZERONA and was back in my skinny jeans in just 2 weeks! – Leeza Gibbons, journalist, producer, mom and ZERONA spokeswoman • Clinically proven slimming • Lose Stubborn fat off your waist, hips and thighs • ZERO pain, ZERO downtime, ZERO surgery

Surfside Flooring Dark and rich, light and contemporary, rustic or smooth and sleek — whatever your style, your local experts at Surfside Flooring have what you need, at the price you want. Home to the Peninsula’s largest selection of hardwoods, laminates, tiles and vinyls, Surfside Flooring is a custom flooring boutique, offering the latest floor Dora and Brian Belyk fashions and unbeatable prices — close to home! Offering hands-on, quality service and expert installation, owners Brian and Dora Belyk, along with their friendly and professional staff, are always available to walk you through their spacious showroom and answer all your flooring questions. No commission sales, just great service, expert installation and knowledgeable advice. “Many people are surprised to find this selection of quality flooring locally at such reasonable prices,” said Brian Belyk, who has been in the flooring business for over 35 years. “However, because we own the store and don’t rent, we have very little overhead. We have also established excellent longterm relationships with our suppliers and manufacturers, so we work together to ensure we’re offering the highest quality product, at the most reasonable price possible.” With decor trends (walls, furnishings, accessories) leaning toward a more neutral colour palette this spring, Belyk says people are really wanting to make a statement with their floors. In addition to colour, he notes the floor’s finish and texture are important considerations both from an aesthetic and practical point of view. “Flooring is definitely one of the biggest investments you can make in your home, so it is very important that home owners are educated about their options and work with a professional who knows how to ask the right questions,” he said. In addition to Armstrong’s Luxe Plank and Alterna vinyl tile (glue-down) floors, Surfside is proud to offer the new Line Art collection from Lauzon, which provides incredibly rich, cutting-edge looks that give a mineral or stone-like aspect to the wood. Other hot floor products include floating porcelain tiles and new designer colour options from Vintage, Satin Finish, Model, Tierra Sol, Anderson, Ames and more, including commercial warrantied products. For all your flooring needs, visit the Surfside showroom (located 15229 Russell Avenue) today!

DeDutch Isn’t it nice to eat at a restaurant where the menu never changes? A place where you can be sure your favourite meal will always be served with a smile whenever you stop by? De Dutch is that kind of place. For over 35 years De Dutch has been serving up its special 12-inch Dutch Pannekoeken in a variety of ways. Always tasty and certainly filling, they’re one type of comfort food you’ll be happy to Michelle Kendall leave home to eat! Not only are you guaranteed the best De Dutch dining experience at the newest location at Grandview Corners, you’ll also experience the unique charm and character that each one of their franchisees personally brings to their restaurant. Michelle Kendall owns and operates the newest Surrey location at 24th Avenue and 161A Street. Her restaurant just celebrated its oneyear anniversary but Michelle, herself, has a long history with the company. “I worked at another Surrey location for six years. When the opportunity came up for me to buy my own franchise, I jumped at the chance.” Michelle’s favourite part of her job is mingling with the customers. “We get everyone from young families to social seniors. I love greeting familiar faces and getting to know the new customers, too.” De Dutch’s menu features breakfast, lunch and brunch selections. In addition to the over 50 varieties of Pannekoeken, De Dutch also offers omelettes and Benedicts, soups, sandwiches and wraps, not to mention the famous Frying Dutchman Burgers! Enjoy your Pannekoeken sweet with apple, sugar and cinnamon, or savoury with turkey bacon, mushrooms and cheese. The choice is yours. Plan to take part in this year’s “Shrove Tuesday” event on March 8th. Two dollars from every Pannekoek will be donated to breast cancer research. De Dutch will be open late until 8 p.m. for this one night only. Stop by De Dutch for a tasty comfort meal and say hello to Michelle. With only the highest quality ingredients used and freshness guaranteed — plus, a Dutch twist to most creations — De Dutch is just simply de licious and de best!

Imagine Laserworks....

Imagine Laserworks

Your Weight Loss Specialists

Imagine you’re on the brink of leaving your longtime smoking habit behind. Imagine a healthier you, 10 pounds lighter. Imagine yourself at Imagine Laserworks, getting treatment for whatever addictions plague you. Almost 13 years ago, Ralph Semple, owner of Imagine Laserworks, read about an Ontario man who quit smoking with the help of laser therapy. His interest piqued, Ralph, an electronic technician Ralph Semple by trade, investigated the concept further and soon opened his first Imagine Laserworks centre in Nanaimo. Instead of acupuncture needles, low-power lasers are used to stimulate key acupuncture points on the body. This causes a release of endorphins, which have a calming effect on the central nervous system. The treatments are painless, drugfree and, in addition to smoking cessation, are highly effective in the treatment of insomnia, depression, drug and alcohol addictions, stress and anxiety, as well as weight loss. Laser treatment for smokers has proven 85 to 94 per cent effective. Imagine Laserworks has now grown to over 70 franchises and affiliate locations around the world. Clients come from all over British Columbia, Oregon and Washington State for treatment. On top of the laser therapy, each client receives individual consultation with handouts, nutritional supplements and ongoing support. In less an hour you will be assessed, treated and on your way to better health. The team at White Rock Imagine Laserworks includes Louise, a registered holistic nutritionist, who is also a certified laser technician; and Gary, a registered doctor of acupuncture, who not only works with lasers but also acupuncture needles, if the client requires heavier stimulation for sports injuries and pain. “Gary recently completed his fourth year of acupuncture schooling in China, where he specialized in weight loss,” said Ralph. “His expertise is very helpful with our clients’ individual needs and the development of our world famous programs.” Ralph’s clients have flown in on private jets from as far away as Lake Tahoe to quit smoking. “They found it so successful that they flew in their relatives for treatments,” said Ralph. “We have also treated famous names in the film industry.” Call Imagine Laserworks today at 604-538-2106 or visit them at 214 – 1676 Martin Drive in White Rock. “Today marks my 200th day since I quit smoking. Your method is easier to follow than any other, and I have tried them all in my 36 years of smoking.” ~Dave

SEASONAL CAR CARE PACKAGE

When you stop to think about it, a quality set of tires may very well be the best money spent on your car. A good set of wheels will keep you safe on slick roads, help maintain good gas mileage and make your driving experience that much more pleasurable, especially on B.C.’s windy, scenic roads. One look at your car and the experts at Fountain Tire can find the right match for the performance you’re looking for. They use Drew Campbell genuine NAPA auto parts and Quaker State motor oils to ensure the best vehicle performance. You may not know that Fountain Tire also offers a full range of mechanical services, including car and truck repairs and vehicle maintenance. “We perform vehicle inspections, full repairs and preventative maintenance services using top-of-the-line diagnostic equipment and tools,” says Drew Campbell, who took over the Peninsula location in 2008. Community support is big on Drew’s priority list. Over the last few years, South Surrey Fountain Tire has donated 800 free oil changes to support local high school football programs. Check out the web site at www.fountaintire.com. It allows you to quickly source out tire brands and request a quote. Simply use the dropdown for the year and make of your vehicle and a selection of suggested tires will be listed. Car, truck, farm and commercial vehicle tires, Fountain Tire stocks them all. Looking for something special to customize your ride? Fountain Tire can outfit your car in one-of-a-kind style. Don’t forget to use your Air Miles card when cashing out at Fountain Tire. You can earn reward miles on car, farm and commercial truck tires, custom wheels and mechanical service purchases. Exclusive to Fountain Tire, no other shop offers Air Miles rewards on tire or mechanical repairs. It’s time to book that spring tune-up and put the snow tires away until next winter. Drop by the Fountain Tire South Surrey location on King George Boulevard and talk to Drew Campbell or one of his knowledgeable staff. They’ll be happy to help with all your tire and automotive needs! Tire Tip: Insert a penny into a tread groove with the Queen’s head towards you, pointed down. If you can see the tips of the crown, it’s time for a new tire.

With all the available choices, buying a new car can be both exciting and sometimes a little overwhelming. To help you get the most out of your time and money, as well as an automobile that is just the right fit for your lifestyle, Kamaljit Dutt (“K.D.”), Peace Arch Toyota sales and leasing consultant, says it pays to do your homework. “Don’t feel pressured to buy anything your first Kamaljit Dutt time out,” said K.D. “Let the salesperson help you gather the information you need, then go home and review everything. If you decide that you have found the right car to suit your needs, then go back.” Helping Peninsula car buyers do their homework with no sales pressure has been a Peace Arch Toyota philosophy since 1966. It’s a philosophy that has helped the one-stop, full-service dealership earn the prestigious Toyota Pinnacle Award for overall customer satisfaction in sales and service. “We are very service oriented,” said K.D., who speaks five languages, including Hindi, Punjabi, Bengali, Norwegian and English. “Our staff are very knowledgeable and always ready to answer questions to help our customers make an informed decision.” Offering $1,000 cash bonuses on select models, this month Toyota is celebrating the sale of its four-millionth vehicle in Canada. Its success is due in no small part to the support and loyalty of their customers who, over the last 46 years, “have travelled to the moon and back with Toyota over a million times” – literally. From the time that Toyota customers first took their Toyotas for a drive in the mid-1960s, Canadian owners have recorded 783,144,824,052 kilometres on their Toyota vehicles (based on annual average driving statistics). With a trip to the moon and back averaging 768,806 km, that works out to 1,040,564 “out of this world” family vacations. “I’m proud to be a part of the Toyota family here in White Rock-South Surrey,” said K.D. It’s rewarding to welcome back our longtime customers, as well as welcome new visitors.” Peace Arch Toyota is the exclusive Peninsula dealer of Toyota cars, SUVs and trucks. Stop by and check out the 2011 Toyota lineup, including the new Camry Hybrid, FJ Cruiser and Venza, plus favourites such as the Corolla, Matrix and Sequoia. Coming soon: the all-new 2012 Prius V (for versatile) midsize hybrid. For more information, call 604-531-2916 or stop by Peace Arch Toyota’s new vehicle showroom at 3174 King George Boulevard.

Turnabout What’s the difference between a good wardrobe and a great one? A good wardrobe can be defined as a closet jam-packed with clothes, but a great wardrobe is one that is constantly streamlined and updated. In other words, repurposing what you don’t wear to make room for what you do wear. That’s where Turnabout comes in. Joy Mauro Turnabout is a shop where you can easily convert your once-loved pieces to cash. From casual jeans to elegant ball gowns, one-of-a-kind jewellery to designer handbags, Turnabout considers it all. Men’s quality suits, ties and shoes? Turnabout takes those, too. Vancouverite Joy Mauro opened the first Turnabout location on South Granville in 1978. She parlayed her passion for fashion into one of Vancouver’s premiere clothing consignment stores. A second shop on West Broadway in Kitsilano soon followed and when Joy made the move to sunny White Rock, a third Turnabout was opened. Turnabout soon became a favourite destination for consignors and treasure hunters alike. “Our clients shop the world,” says Mauro. “We pride ourselves in selecting colourful, varied merchandise that is almost brand new. Most of our pieces are generally not more than two seasons old.” On average, items are priced at wholesale and reduced as necessary. You get a 40 per cent cut with an automatic payout issued every three months. Fashionistas with a keen eye are in luck. The more “in style” and popular the label, the faster it will sell and the better the return. It’s time to start spring-cleaning and weeding out those pieces that are cluttering your dressers and closets. The new spring/summer consignment season starts in February and runs until August. Call Turnabout at 604-5362827 today for an appointment to set up your account. After that, drop off items at your convenience, seven days a week. Stop by the new 3,600 square foot location in South Surrey at Peninsula Village. Joy and her staff are excited to show you around their fresh, shopperfriendly store. Judging by the huge, sparkly chandelier, the new Turnabout looks more like an upscale boutique rather than a consignment store. Turnabout your closet today. In a few easy steps, you can take your wardrobe from a good one, into a great one!

Morgan Creek Dental Clinic Are you looking for an experienced, friendly, relaxed and caring local dentist committed to bringing you a lifetime of healthy teeth and a pictureperfect smile? How about one that is also an expert in Botox and Invisalign braces? Search no more! With an emphasis on family and aesthetic dentistry, Dr. Tao Zeng, DMD, DDS and his Dr. Tao Zeng highly educated staff at Morgan Creek Dental Clinic offer a variety of services, including preventative, restorative and reconstructive dental procedures. A graduate of both the UBC Faculty of Dentistry and the West China University of Medical Science School of Dentistry, Dr. Zeng has amassed over 20 years of clinical experience. “Our professionally certified team members are very friendly and have many years of experience in dental practice,” said Dr. Zeng. “Our patients are an extended family and our goal is to make their experience fabulous.” Equipped with the most advanced technology and facilities, Dr. Zeng was awarded the prestigious American Academy of Oral Medicine Award and is highly regarded for his research and study on oral pre-malignant lesions, which he conducted in cooperation with the BC Cancer Agency and UBC. In addition to full-service, family dentistry — which includes regular check-ups, cleanings and oral medicine — Morgan Creek Dental Clinic specializes in cosmetic dental procedures, which commonly include: teeth whitening; composite and porcelain veneers; inlays and onlays; dentures and dental implants. “We see people of all ages, with all types of dental health concerns,” said Dr. Zeng. “In addition to addressing any existing problems, we put a lot of focus on preventative care, as well as educating our patients about the ways in which poor dental hygiene can negatively impact their overall health.” In fact, Dr. Zeng says recent studies have found a significant correlation between compromised dental health and cardiovascular disease. “Studies have shown that poor dental health carries a higher risk of causing cardiovascular disease than smoking, high cholesterol levels, obesity or lack of exercise,” he said. “Many people are also unaware that it can lead to diabetes and low birthweight.” Morgan Creek Dental Clinic is accepting new patients at their newly-built facility, located at the Morgan Creek Corporate Centre (15252 32nd Avenue) in South South Surrey. For more information or to make an appointment, please call 604-536-4222.

EYECARE FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY

White Rock Eye Care

Glasses, Sunglasses, Contact Lenses

Presbyopia – A natural change in your vision. You find yourself holding the newspaper at arm’s length. Your short-range vision is blurry. You sit as close as possible to a light source when reading. Presbyopia, commonly known as farsightedness, is not an illness but a natural Linda & Jas change in vision that occurs after the age of 40. Like 15 million other presbyiopic Canadians, your difficulty in seeing up close is the result of a loss of elasticity in the lenses of your eyes. Your eyes’ difficulty in adapting to this change is not unlike the autofocus mechanism on a camera that can’t find the focus point. There is no way to delay or cure presbyopia, but eyeglasses can provide excellent correction. Progressive Lenses Unlike other solutions, which only provide partial relief, progressive lenses allow you to see well at all distances. Progressive lenses allow you to see distant objects through the upper part of the lens, middle distances in the middle and short distances in the lower part. There are no abrupt divisions or visible lines. Going without corrective lenses will not postpone the onset of presbyopia. On the contrary, it will cause fatigue in your eyes. You should start wearing glasses as soon as the first sign of presbyopia appear. Our digital lenses not only provide you with natural vision, reduced distortion, fast and easy adaptation, but also with a wider field of vision. These lenses are available in transition and polarized to protect you from harmful UV rays. White Rock Eye Care is committed to providing its customers with the finest quality lenses from the industry’s leading manufacturers, with personalized service from caring staff. Manager and optician Jas Sra and her dedicated staff take the time to assess the individual needs of each and every customer, providing them with the perfect match whether they’re shopping for eyeglasses, contact lenses or sunglasses. Keeping in mind the latest fashion trends, there are plenty of different eyeglass and sunglass designs to choose from at White Rock Eye Care, to ensure even the most fashion-conscious shopper finds a trendy look to suit their style. Jas and the rest of the team at White Rock Eye Care will be more than happy to help you find the perfect fit, so visit them at 20th Avenue and 152 Street in Windsor Square for all your eye care needs.

River’s Bend Winery One of the biggest misconceptions about River’s Bend Winery is that it’s tucked into the slope of a hill in the Interior of B.C. In fact, it’s less than five minutes from the intersection of 152nd and Highway 10 in Surrey. “Almost everyone who comes into our store can’t believe we’re so close,” says Stephen Scheibel, manager at River’s Bend.

Jacquie

Even though the winery is well within city limits, you’ll still feel like you’re in the country when you reach the front porch of the winery’s gift shop and tasting room. Step out the back and gaze at the 30 acres of pastoral farmland and 15-acre vineyard bordered by the winding Serpentine River. Allow some time to speak with the knowledgeable and friendly staff to get a sense of how special River’s Bend Winery really is. You’ll soon realize that River’s Bend is a place where there’s no room for pretentiousness. “Some people feel nervous stepping into a winery because they may not have the knowledge or the terminology to express what they like in a wine,” says Stephen. “But that’s where we all start. We don’t like to tell people what’s best or not. We like them to make up their own minds without being influenced.” All of the wines are produced on site using only B.C. grapes. Seven varieties are “Estate Bottles,” made 100 per cent from grapes grown on the property. Stephen and his staff will be happy to open any bottle you like for tasting. Before you know it, you’ll be swirling and savouring your way to a new favourite wine. “We’ve recently brought in some new foods that we’re excited for customers to try,” says Stephen. “We like to think of River’s Bend Winery as a one-stop entertainment shop, so we decided to offer a gourmet variety of dips, spreads, tapenades and crackers.” Guests are invited to sample the selection, just ask! So, take a short turn off Highway 10 and immerse yourself in the sights and scenes, while sampling the unique tastes at River’s Bend Winery. It’s a little slice of the Okanagan in the middle of Surrey.
