65-storey towers frame gathering area in winning Townshift entry

Semiahmoo designer inspired by 18th century Rome Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Imagine the sidewalk northeast of Semiahmoo Shopping Centre veering from the roadside and passing through the centre of a building, which is hollow and framed by four connected 65-storey towers. The narrow roads would become more pedestrian-friendly, converging into a public gathering area. It’s the vision of Robert Denvir, the TownShift: Suburb Into City design contest winner for Semiahmoo announced Wednesday. The Vancouver resident said the roadwork

was inspired by the streets of Rome during the 18th century. Last November, the City of Surrey invited designers to submit their visions for the future of five town centres, including Semiahmoo, Cloverdale, Fleetwood, Newton and Guildford. The competition offered $75,000 in prize money and attracted 138 submissions from 20 countries, and 27 finalists were selected by the five-member TownShift jury of experts. All 27 have been on public display at Simon Fraser University’s Surrey campus for the past three weeks, and will remain on

This service is almost nonexistent most of the time, yet is the best way to lure people out of their cars. Some Olympic grumblers complain that the cost of the Canada Line wasn’t being considered an “Olympic” expense. The fact is, the Canada Line is proving invaluable in moving people during the Olympics (carrying 250,000 people daily last Friday and Saturday), and it will continue to move them long after the Games are over. I had my first Canada Line ride last week, taking the 351 bus from South Surrey to Bridgeport Station. The bus and train service is an excellent way to get to Richmond, the airport and many parts of Vancouver. The grumblers are correct that the Canada Line may not have been built this soon without Vancouver winning the 2010 Winter Olympics, but there is no doubt it will be one of the Games’ longest-lasting and most successful legacies. Transit planners, the provincial government and TransLink need to take heed of the success of the transit system in the past two weeks. There needs to be an expanded transit service – and TransLink must have

the means to pay for it. That means more funding from the province – not a host of new taxes. Areas south of the Fraser must get a much higher level of transit

news Musical Ride team members (sans horses) share spirit on road trip

Serge of enthusiasm at Semiahmoo House Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A trio of Mounties in Red Serge received an enthusiastic welcome at Semiahmoo House Society Wednesday. “This is my day!” Patrick Brough exclaimed as he greeted the three – all members of the RCMP Musical Ride team – with an ear-toear smile, cheers and handshakes. Brough’s excitement was far from isolated as Consts. Ron Helpard and Keli Gaudet posed for photos with more than a dozen of the individuals who work, socialize, learn and grow at Semiahmoo House, an organization that supports people with developmental disabilities and their families. Faces lit up at the chance to hold a 2010 Olympic torch – courtesy of Surrey RCMP Chief Supt. Fraser MacRae, who ran one of the torch-relay legs in Surrey – flanked by

the formally attired officers. “I’ve never seen the Mounties in person – pretty close,” said Jamie Thompson. Sharing the thrill of the Musical Ride with those who may not otherwise have the opportunity was the goal of the visit, said South Surrey Community Safety Officer Susan Caley, who arranged the appearance with help from CSO Amar Gill, crime prevention co-ordinator Pat LeBlanc and District 5 office co-ordinator Elsie Vose. While the Ride is part of ongoing Olympic festivities, including twice-daily shows at Holland Park in North Surrey, there are many who are unable to attend, Caley said, citing physical and other disabilities as among factors that can stand in the way. “We kind of wanted to target people who wouldn’t have an opportunity to get down to Holland Park.”

Keirra Stoneham holds torch with Consts. Ron Helpard and Keli Gaudet Wednesday. Plans for the visit originally included some of the 33 horses that have been dazzling crowds around Greater Vancouver with the choreographed drills that have earned the Musical Ride its international acclaim.

Unfortunately, inclement weather forced cancellation of that appearance, for fear the horses might catch a chill. Sgt. Jerry Mayo, a 27-year member of the Ride team said it is unfortunate the horses had to be cancelled. They have made guest appearances “pretty much every day” and are always a source of delight, he said. “Everybody seems to really enjoy being around the horses so it’s been a lot of fun for us, too,” Mayo said. Semiahmoo House’s Paul Wheeler said that although the visit lasted less than an hour, the excitement of those who experienced it lasted all day. “It’s just a tremendous opportunity for them,” Wheeler said. “Having the Mounties here ... was a big thing.” Wednesday’s entourage also paid a visit to seniors at Sunnyside Manor.

A concerted effort to maintain a school community that is inclusive of both its students and neighbourhood children was celebrated Thursday at Bayridge Elementary, with the official opening of a new, accessible playground. Sporting a pour-in-place, shredded-tire surface – unique to the school district – the $70,000 playground includes a saucer swing and climbing apparatus. Fundraising for the equipment began two years ago, after a ramp that had made the existing playground accessible was removed by the school district for safety reasons. Though done with the best intentions, the move essentially segregated the school’s special-needs population, said Sharon Richardson, parent advisory council co-chair. “They took it out... and children that are special needs just had to sit on the sidelines and watch the other children play,” she said. Richardson and PAC co-chair Farrah Collier, neither of whom have children with special needs, organized the effort to reconnect the school community, securing significant support from Tire Stewardship B.C. and the Rick Hansen Foundation. The balance – more than $40,000 – was raised by parents through various events and sales. The campaign was both frustrating and exhausting, Collier said – but worth it. “There should be no difference,” she said, referring to the type of community a school offers students both inside and outside. “That’s all that matters, the looks on their faces. They love it.” – Tracy Holmes

The suspects, identified as Mexican nationals, were located and arrested under the Immigration Act.

Failure to report Two women and one man arrested near Peace Arch Park Feb. 14 learned the hard way not to bypass the Canadian border. Police caught up with the three in the 17100-block of 0 Avenue around 2:30 p.m., after a report from U.S. Border Patrol officials. Two Americans said they were walking a Canadian acquaintance back to her car after a U.S. visit. “They were visiting and didn’t bother using the border... which is illegal,” Const. Kenn Meglic said. “You have to report.” The Americans were released into the custody of USBP.

Rules are ‘all about safety’: FHA Planning Your Dream Wedding?  from page A1 (BMI). At 39.5, it exceeded the hospital’s 38 BMI cut-off, she said. BMI is calculated by dividing a person’s height by their weight, squared. According to various studies, pregnant women with a high BMI – 25 or greater – are at increased risk of such complications as gestational diabetes and high blood pressure, and have the highest rates of emergency C-sections. A high BMI can also create challenges in administering a spinal anesthesia (epidural), which her patient had wanted, Gustafson said. “The anesthetist felt it’s safer with a person with a BMI over 38... to deliver at a place where there are two anesthetists available,” she said, noting Peace Arch Hospital has just one. Gustafson told Peace Arch News that until the anesthetist’s response Dec. 22, she had believed the BMI cutoff was 40. She was surprised to learn there is no room for discretion, particularly given that, as Bommarito was otherwise healthy, she felt her patient was low-risk. “I didn’t think she could possibly fall into that (high-risk) category,” Gustafson said. The hospital’s head anesthetist was not available to comment. Fraser Health’s Joan Marshall wouldn’t discuss the Bommarito case specifically, but did say the hospital’s BMI cutoff is “absolutely firm,” and in line with guidelines set out by the B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons as well as B.C. Women’s Hospital. It is to ensure the patient and unborn child are cared for in a hospital equipped – unlike Peace Arch – to cope with the potential complications of a high-risk pregnancy, she said. “It’s all about safety to the patient and the newborn,” Mar-

For Bommarito, the news meant she had to be transferred back for delivery at Surrey Memorial – a process that only added to an already stressful situation. She said her new doctor was not immediately sent her charts, and told her if she was to suddenly go into labour, there would be “mass confusion” at the hospital, and an immediate C-section. In the end, worried something more could go wrong, Bommarito opted to schedule a C-section. Little Oliver was born, without complications, on Jan. 14. Gustafson described her patient’s experience as “a sad story,” and said she feels “horrible” about what happened. “I do take partial responsibility because of my understanding of the BMI cutoff of 40,” she said. At the same time, Gustafson said, there is a positive side that deserves note. “Maybe the (BMI) cutoff is arbitrary, but I think the medicine behind there being increased risks is true,” Gustafson said. “Our concern is always patient safety. We all have to respect each other’s limitations. “I think there’s something to be said for Peace Arch understand-

ing the limits of a community hospital, and that we can provide safe care to our community by understanding there may be some things that need tertiary care.” Bommarito said if she had just been told of the hospital’s limitations from the get-go, there wouldn’t have been an issue. Her mother agrees. She said there is nothing in hospital literature noting the facility is restricted to low-risk obstetrical care. Given ongoing efforts to solicit donations for a new maternity unit, it is a point people should be aware of, she said. “You see all these signs around the Peace Arch Hospital... asking the public to donate money to this maternity ward. I wouldn’t want to be a person to donate money to turn around and find out I can’t deliver there,” she said. Shelly Bommarito, with permission from her daughter, has complained to the B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons. A response letter indicates the college has “no authority over the actions of the hospital,” however, officials did indicate they would ask her daughter’s doctor to respond to the concerns.

I have a adult child who is deeply addicted to drugs and supports the addiction by small time crime. I have heard there is a way to avoid a claim by my child under the Wills Variation Act. I have heard the term “alter ego” trust. Can this be done? Yes, but it is expensive and it requires regular attention by you because a trust is a separate legal entity which requires separate income tax returns, and when you change properties you must adjust your trust to reÁect the change. If it is going to be a joint trust with both personal you and your spouse, then you will lose some of your deductions. My opinion is that such a trust is a last resort, and you should get advice from a Chartered Accountant about the tax aspects before you see a lawyer.

editorial

Keep spirit strong even after Games he athletic competitions of the 2010 Winter Olympics are almost over. But the real games are just beginning. Over the next few days a lot of hands will be wrung and anxiety expended as we breathlessly anticipate the parting words of IOC President Jacques Rogge in his speech to close the Games on Sunday evening. Will he declare them “the best Winter Olympics ever?” Or will his assessment be more neutral, open to every conceivable interpretation by Games’ commentators and political spin doctors? There’s no doubt Vancouver’s Olympics had problems. The tragic death of Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili at the Whistler sliding centre even before the Olympic cauldron was lit should not be dismissed as just another “sporting accident.” In any other circumstance there would have been a full RCMP investigation and likely a coroner’s inquiry before another slider was allowed to risk their life on the track. Such an investigation into its design and engineering should proceed. Speaking of the cauldron – the chain link fence that separated it from all who wanted to see it in its glory, set against the backdrop of Coal Harbour and the North Shore mountains, was an aesthetic and public-relations disaster. Surely VANOC could have found a better way to address security concerns. And the ticket debacle at Cypress was inexcusable. Yes, January’s warm weather – in the lead up to the Games – threw a wrench in the works, but mild winters are not surprising in the Lower Mainland. But there was also much good in these past two weeks. The Games showed the world Vancouver loves to party and, for the most part, can do it responsibly. For two weeks we smiled as we’ve never smiled before, as we were treated to some of the finest achievements on record by Canadian athletes – from Alex Bilodeau’s gold medal, the first ever won on home soil; to two-sport star Clara Hughes, who ended her Olympic career in much the same way she started: on the podium. Even the anti-Olympic protestors seemed to give up as they succumbed to the spirit that enlivened the city. Let’s keep it up.

The hockey game was thrilling. Watching the Czechs fall to the Russians was a sight to behold, even from the top row. The number and sizes of national flags was an eye-opener for my children, who up until recent days, had seen Canadians treat crass patriotism with disdain. One last world-class experience was attempting to get my children through the hordes back home, opening their eyes to the world of public insobriety and people’s willingness to stand in long lines for food (neither seen, coincidentally, since the fall of the Eastern Bloc). Unfortunately, once there I realized the day’s outing did little to instill my own sense of Olympic spirit. But then, a funny thing happened as we settled in for the night. The television was still on after the disappointing Canada-U.S. game, and I noticed a pair of ice dancers just starting their routine. By no means my favourite sport, I probably wouldn’t have looked twice had it not been for the interesting beat. But there they were, Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir in fine, poetic form, capturing my full attention and the judges’ highest scores. I was captivated, returning the next night to watch them win the gold. Sheer talent. Beautiful, skillful human achievement. I guess I found a little spirit burning within, after all.

Bigger doesn’t make better Editor: Re: Compromise could pave way for brighter future, Feb. 19 editorial. In a recent editorial, an assumption was made by the anonymous author about how White Rock residents voted in the last civic election. I, for one, can’t presume how everyone voted, but as a resident who did vote in the last election, one of my concerns was building heights and development in White Rock. I and many others I know who voted wanted more appropriate development in the town centre and wanted heights scaled down to match the character of this place. My own preferences are for more modest heights, much less than the current council is proposing in its OCP amendment. As a former resident of Vancouver, I saw the transformation of West Broadway and West 4 Avenue from one- to two-storey commercial/ retail storefronts to four-storey residential/retail/commercial complexes. Both affordable- and market-housing developments sprung up all over these very expensive portions of land. These developments revitalized the commercial areas of these streets and provided desperately needed housing. On any given day, these streets are filled with pedestrians shopping or browsing. Currently, there are a few residents in White Rock who believe the only way someone can afford to build here is by constructing skyscrapers, or high-density towers. They say the cost of land is an impediment to building in our town centre if council approves 12-storey heights. I wonder how builders have found opportunities constructing four-storey buildings along most of Vancouver’s major streets, which have property values much higher than White Rock’s. I wonder how one of the most expensive real estate lands in Vancouver, the southeast False Creek lands, where the current six-block square Olympic Village rests, can have an assortment of buildings from threestorey townhouses to 13-storey mid-density towers and still be seen as an opportunity for the builder. Perhaps the reason for pushing for 20-plus-storey towers is it will push up the price of land. But this does not guarantee anything will be built, as evident by the number of large vacant lots in our town centre. Is it really the height that is preventing builders from building? Why is it one can see hundreds of four- to 12-storey developments being built throughout the region, yet in White Rock we see few such developments, but see an articulate but small group of individuals pushing for a skyscraper model. Again, why? Their arguments just don’t hold up to the reality. Do we want to see a viable town centre take shape in the short term or will we have to wait for decades for the skyscraper vision? Phil Le Good, White Rock

Q I fail to understand the perspective of former candidates and critics that big makes better. Bigger buildings equals height and green space? More people squeezed in equals density absorption of some future growth? An amenity tradeoff of another dog parkette like Martin Drive? Why? More than nine incarnations of supposed economic and development so-called leaders have been at play in White Rock for decades. Yet the dismal outcomes are so well demonstrated by empty retail fronts, annual reliable failure of about a third of restaurants, bankrupt hair salons and saturated retail or services. I see empty condo units, vacant lots and a neverending stream of young, loud and drunken tenants rented to by absentee owners/speculators. Many examples exist for not becoming an uber-urban highrise clone. Small, low scale and humble need not be a down-at-the-heel enclave. White Rock is desirable because it is not Yaletown, PoCo centre or other clone town centres. I have yet to see or hear of the constructive analysis beyond “markets” to turn to a focus on community building. The OCP can be framed to include pro-active courting for appropriate viable businesses for White Rock to create a healthy mix

of merchants and services that fit the demographic patterns and any projections it would support. Use Surrey’s assets to benefit not compete with. To accomplish this, my sense is we may need a fresh champion, diplomat or mediator to facilitate some innovation and better collaboration which will shape the unique character, strengthen capacity and draw in the best mix, to develop measurable short- and long-term options for contained, slow and low development. Pat Petrala, White Rock

Happy ending at Bedtime Editor: I have just had the pleasure of being entertained by a cast of very talented community-theatre actors in Bedtime Stories. I am very fortunate to live in this beautiful city of White Rock and have the opportunity to attend our playhouse and enjoy a fun-filled night with folks who give of their time and talents to make us laugh. If comedy is your taste, catch Bedtime Stories playing at the Coast Capital Playhouse until Feb.27. Thanks heaps to the cast and crew for the great entertainment. Gayle Boutilier, White Rock

Higher powers play 2010 role Editor: At the Olympic opening ceremony Feb. 12 at B.C.

It is still happening for those who believe what he stood for. What a great nation we would have if only, “Do you believe?” Kathy Reed, Surrey Q Re: Support for Steve Fonyo, Feb. 19 letters. Further to the growing public disgust at the humiliation of Steve Fonyo, I want to add my voice. This travesty occurred just 17 days before the other principle handicapped athletes of Canada were honoured in the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics. On that special evening, I was impressed by the mystic intervention of fate. One famed Canadian, Steve Fonyo, was missing from the stage, and one arm of the cauldron failed to deploy! Curious, eh? And the world was the witness. David J. Cook, Surrey

Letter-writer Lex Henry says his efforts to respond to a call for entries by the City of Surrey proved difficult.

Technology, bureaucracy stifling Editor: Re: The world reacts, Dec. 25. Did you feel inspired to submit your ideas for the future growth of Surrey? I did, and here’s what happened. After reading Peace Arch News’ front-page article, it motivated me to submit my ideas to Surrey City Hall. The article spelled out that “every submission would be posted online – even if they’re merely sweet-andsour-stained crayon sketches roughed out while dining at a food court,” and that “people without architectural or design training have a potential advantage over professionals… because they think outside the box.” Wow, a competition open to everyone! All simple enough. Or so I thought. I took my two pages of ideas, securely tucked into an envelope, to city hall on Jan. 6, as specified in the

article. But when I arrived, where was the drop-off box? Where was the banner across the lobby? Indeed, where was anything to indicate that Surrey was doing anything exciting? It started to look like a non-event. Upon inquiring, I was told registration closed on the 4th. Not only that – a $50 fee was involved! Then, to add insult to injury, the deadline for entries was Jan. 6, but only if submitted on the Internet. A trip to the library revealed that the information on the website was enough to stifle the imagination of the average citizen who dares to look over even the top edge of “the box.” Between technology and bureaucracy, my well-intended contribution to the community was negated and invalidated. Did anyone else try to submit a 20th century entry? Yours, equipped with pencil and paper, Lex Henry, White Rock

De-feeted steps being ‘rejuvenated’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Bronze footprints that once climbed the Ash Street stairs from Marine Drive have disappeared. But those concerned the 48 prints had fallen victim to vandals or metal thieves can rest easy. “The footprints have not been stolen,” assured Debbie Magson, executive director of the White Rock South Surrey Community Foundation. “We are rejuvenating the whole project.” The bronze tributes were part of the Walking on Sunshine project, a partnership of the youth-based Semiahmoo Mosaic Workshop Society and WRSSCF that transformed the staircase into a colourful tile mosaic reminiscent of a White Rock sunset. The footprints were sold for $250 each, engraved and inset into the staircase as a fundraiser for the foundation. Unfortunately, in the five years since, the project has lost its sheen. Weeding in the planters on either side of the staircase has been minimal and the stairs need a facelift. A decision to upgrade the site was made in conjunction with the city’s parks department last spring, Magson said. The plans include sandblasting the existing footprints, and once again offering up the opportunity to purchase a tribute plaque. Magson said temporary signage was erected at the site last fall to inform those who might wonder what happened to the feet. White Rock’s Ruth Carrier said this

week she was “devastated” when she discovered last week that the feet were gone. She purchased four of the plaques in 2005 – three as tributes to her two brothers and sister, as well as one bearing her own name. They were “a wonderful idea” that both reminded her of her siblings and helped enhance the area, Carrier wrote in an email to the Peace Arch News. Carrier was relieved to learn that afternoon that the plaques will be reset. Matt Todd, the former city councillor who worked on the project as a liaison, said it was an effort the neighbourhood took a real shine to. Residents purchased plaques to mark everything from weddings to birthdays to graduations. “It went over really, really well,” he said. “They used those footprints to commemorate those times that they had.” Magson said funds from sales of the footprints – available for $300 each – will benefit local charities supported by the foundation, which means individuals purchasing a foot will receive a tax receipt for the full $300. The timeline for resetting the plaques is dependent on the schedule for the other beautification work, which has yet to be finalized. Foundation volunteers will be assisting with the necessary weeding, Magson added. For more information on the project or to purchase a footprint, Magson can be reached at 778-292-1367 or info@wrsscf.org

cancer or even her death. “The one thing Dawn wanted most was for people to celebrate joyfully,” Keber said by email. “She would want us to come together and focus on the positive things and the good memories.” Everyone is welcome at the celebration, which is to take place from 2 to 4 p.m.

Robert Denvir submission adhered to the theme: “Up – forming plaza through residential towers.”

City plans to adopt from new ideas  from page A1 has room for one or two 18- to 20-storey towers. A three-person team from Houston, Texas – Matthew Johnson, Jason Logan and Josh Robbins – won second place for the site, while Gerry Gleeson of Dublin, Ireland received an honourable mention. Renante Solivar, of Vancouver’s Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership, focused on the Guildford location to win the overall prize for best design entry and the best design. Solivar’s vision has the 152 Street corridor near 104 Avenue sport a row of fire-engine red buildings that flow right to the street. Solivar said the buildings would replace a “desert of surface parking through the insertion of spaces.” He said the red colour was chosen because of its warmth, passion and emotion. Just to the south of Guildford, Surrey was looking to better define where Fleetwood starts and ends. Richmond’s Martin Liew won with the Fleetwood category with

Solivar also won a $15,000 prize for best design presentation overall. Mayor Dianne Watts said she is pleased with the designs presented and said ideas will be taken from several proposals, rather than adopting any one vision entirely. She noted it is important to gather input from creative people who may not be constrained by the traditional laws of urban design. “What we did 20 years ago isn’t what we want to do today,” Watts said. The city had budgeted about $350,000 for the competition. Architect Allen Aubert, a South Surrey resident and co-ordinator for the organizing committee, noted last fall that commissioning five separate designs would have cost the city “in the millions.” – with Peace Arch News files

TRAVEL & CRUISES Latest cruise trend: no single supplement for single travellers If you’re planning a cruise vacation in 2010, get ready for one of the most innovative concepts to come along in awhile. Lots of single people cruise and want to cruise, but right now, if you are going on a cruise as a single person and you occupy a double cabin, they charge you an additional fee for doing that, sometimes as much as 200%. Norwegian Cruise Lines which launches “The Epic” this summer, will offer 128 studios for singles. The cabins are specifically designed for

These cabins are very limited and one key thing to consider is to book early and the trend is that more passengers are booking farther in advance. In 2010. What does this mean for consumers?

solo travellers, and come without the supplemental charge that single passengers on cruises have traditionally paid. The cabins open onto a lounge area where solo travellers can socialize. Bert Stevens of Marlin thinks the single studios “will take off and more cruise lines will follow. Uniworld which operate European River Cruises have a select number of cruises which waive the single supplement.

“As the ship fills up, the prices go up,” They give you the best prices six months to a year out, and at the very end, if there are still empty cabins, they discount them. The best way to get the best deal on a cruise is to book early. Almost all the cruise lines offer price guarantees, so if you see a price lower than what you booked, they will honour that.” Latest figures reveal just how many people there are out there willing to give travelling alone a shot. In fact, as a single traveller luck is on your side because with more and more people opting to travel solo, the chances are

Close-knit school ‘a true little gem of the city’  from page A11 “In most schools, it is more segregated. Hall’s Prairie is more encompassing.” Small class sizes and a low teacher turnover make it easier for instructors to connect with students, and Coueffin believes her kids have received more oneon-one attention as a result. “A lot of the teachers tend to stick around and they get to know a lot of the kids,” she says, adding there are smooth transitions between grades. “The teachers have a better opportunity to approach the teacher from the

previous year to find out about a child.” A small student body also makes school-wide field trips possible. “We’ve had occasions where the whole school goes to the beach. Last year, we did a kite-flying thing. In a normal school, you don’t do that,” Coueffin says. “That’s why we have stayed in the area, because we’ve kind of enjoyed the quaintness of Hall’s Prairie.” When her children attended a play last year at Earl Marriott – where they will eventually enrol in high school – Coueffin says they

were “amazed” by its size. “Earl Marriott is excessively large compared to Hall’s Prairie,” she says. “It’s the culture shock.” Marlikowski says Hall’s Prairie students also don’t tend to be exposed to the risks students at larger schools are. “The peer pressure isn’t such a big factor; we certainly don’t have the drugs and alcohol that a bigger school will have,” she says. “It’s just a real community feel. I know every child in that school by name and I know most of their parents.” Marlikowski’s history with the

school dates back to 1947, when her mother started Grade 3. She notes there wasn’t Grade 7 at that point, and kindergarten still hadn’t been introduced by the time her brothers started in 1965. She entered Grade 1 in 1975.

“I still get a kick out of it simply because my kids are going to school with the grandchildren of some of the (families) who went to school with my mom.” There are characteristics of Hall’s Prairie that just don’t exist in schools anymore, Marlikowski says, and it is important to her that her own children be a part of its history. “I think we’re the only school in Surrey that has a fishing club,” she laughs. “It is a true little gem of the city that most people wouldn’t even know is there. But it’s irreplaceable.”

Once installed and operating, wind farms provide very few jobs and some – being radio-controlled – have no permanent staff on site at all and require only periodic maintenance visits. Europe’s largest, at Cefn Croes in Wales, will have just four fulltime workers. Available data show wind turbines can be deadly to birds, especially larger slowflying raptors. In Germany, in January 2006, carcasses of 69 redtailed hawks and 56 buzzards were found beneath turbines, and more could have been removed by scavenging foxes and other creatures. Flanders reported the average number of kills at three wind farms was 24, 35 and 18 for each turbine tower. Annual mortality at California’s Altamont Pass wind farm averages between 200 and 300 red-tailed hawks, more than 75 golden eagles, and more than 40 other species – which, incidentally, violates federal and state wildlife protection laws.

England site in one year. Noise – both from the swishing of rotor blades through the air and sounds from the gear box and generator – are social problems. Especially troubling are low-frequency vibrations which are detectable several kilometres away and are suspected of sub-clinical health effects. Another social problem is interference with TV, radar and aviation. These may be avoided by siting wind farms off-shore, but they require a flat seabed no more than 40 metres deep and must be clear of fishing grounds, helicopter flight paths, military zones, pipelines and shipping lanes. When the whole story is told, wind farms do not offer a trouble-free solution to energy problems; they are not a panacea. Q Surrey’s Nature Matters program offers a variety of environmental activities – birding walks, kids’ spring fling, sustainable living forum and fair, and participation at the Nature Centre.

HouseWarmings and

If I had to choose a word to describe HouseWarmings it would be ‘sensory’ full of colour, scents, textures and design - which is why my advertising needs to reflect all of the visual images a shopper can look forward to in my store. The Peace Arch News happily provides strong creative advertising support so that I receive maximum results with a minimal amount of my time required to create them. It starts with my Peace Arch News ad consultant who works well in advance with me to develop an ad concept. Next, their award-winning photographer captures the feel of HouseWarmings through beautiful images. Finally, it all comes together with a welldesigned, eye catching ad from their Creative Services department. The final product, an ad with style and impact, is then ready to ‘go to work’. Because of their attention to ad creation, the results I receive from ads placed in the Peace Arch News and Indulge Magazine are noticeable. The feedback from customers and traffic through HouseWarmings tells me people are seeing my ads. Working with the team at the Peace Arch News is always positive. The bottom line is that the Peace Arch News supports businesses like HouseWarmings, which is why I am happy to support them.

More help for Haiti Donations by customers and staff at BC Liquor Store locations have raised more than $345,000 in support of Canadian Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti. Between Jan. 19 and Feb. 12, all of the province’s 197 BC Liquor Stores – including the Peninsula Village location – accepted donations for the cause.

Proceeds were sent to the Canadian Red Cross Haiti Earthquake Fund, which is supporting medical, clean water, food and shelter needs in Haiti following the 7.0-magnitude earthquake that struck off the impoverished nation’s western coast just before 5 p.m. on Jan. 12. This is the fourth time that BC Liquor Stores have collected donations to benefit disaster relief campaigns. They also pitched in during the B.C. wildfires in 2003, after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and following Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

I have been lucky enough to own a business in White Rock since 1984 and along the way the Peace Arch News has been an integral part of my success. Very simply, I have relied on the P eace Arch News to generate consistent, effective response to my ads. [Unknown]

In the course of my 26 years in business our clients, most of which came to us through our newspaper ads are now our great friends. I am so grateful that we live and work in such a close knit community and that our local newspaper is there to meet the needs of all of its residents. At Mareth’s Hair Studio our message has always been to promote a commitment of professionalism in our work and value to our clients. With the Peace Arch News and their extensive circulation as our marketing partner, Mareth’s has flourished.

Mareth Hunter Owner/Operator Mareth’s Hair Studio

The Peace Arch News has helped us become a stronger voice on the Peninsula since we opened in 1996. We have received great service and have always been happy to have our Peace Arch News representatives call on us. The Peace Arch News helps us reach our customers and show our commitment to the community. We are always pleased by the number of customers who come in because they have seen our ad in the newspaper. We are a community-based business, and that is why the Peace Arch News is our choice for advertising on the Peninsula. Our sales, clinics and races have seen great success thanks to the Peace Arch News. The Shop Local ads have shown that pictures are worth a thousand words, and we have had customers come in to buy the entire outfit that was featured in our ad. The Peace Arch News has been there for us since we opened, and their commitment to us is important, that is why we choose to advertise with them.

Unconventional, deviant creations on display Alex Browne Arts Reporter

The Frog Prince – one of several Deviant Dolls by Elizabeth Carefoot.

For some, the word deviant has a negative connotation. But Crescent Beach fabric artist, painter and performer Elizabeth Carefoot is not one of them. Her Deviant Dolls – subject of her upcoming First Thursday artist’s talk at Surrey Art Gallery (Thursday, March 4, 7:30 p.m., 13750 88 Ave.) are deviant mainly in the dictionary sense of “different” or “departing from usual or accepted standards.” Which is not to say that the artist doesn’t have a dark side. And she’s the first to admit that it does turn up in the collection of more

than two dozen highly unconventional handmade dolls that she will share with the public – for one night only – at the gallery. “People can pick them up and hold them and fondle them,” Carefoot said, adding the tactile sense of the creations is what, for her, defines a doll. “Otherwise, they’re not dolls – they’re collectors’ items exhibited behind glass.” As in most of Carefoot’s work, there is a deeper context beneath the brightly coloured surface. As a young girl of five or so, during the Second World War, Carefoot – born in Shanghai to a Russian mother and an English father who worked for an American pulp and paper company – was interned with

other members of her family in a Japanese concentration camp in China. One of her favourite companions was a rag doll, she said. “It was painted up as Snow White. My father hid a gold bar in the stuffing – it represented all the money we had. But as soon as we crossed over into the camp, the doll was snatched from me. (The guards) unstuffed it – but they did give my doll back to me.” There are even more resonances to dolls for her, Carefoot said. In the shamanistic traditions of her Siberian grandmother, for instance, reaction to a doll, a box or some other object would be used by  see page A32

Artist’s dolls ‘not like the ones your granny makes’  from page A31 the healer as a key to discover what ailed a ‘client.’ In that context, it will be telling to see reactions of individuals to Carefoot’s dolls at the talk – her experience has been that people have responded with everything from dread to “isn’t that cute?” when they’ve seen them. They’ll probably agree on one thing. Her unique creations, including a Frog Prince, and one with the head of a fashion doll and the body of a snake, are definitely – as the media release from Surrey Art Gallery suggests – “not like the ones your granny makes.” When she started making dolls some 17 years ago, interestingly enough, she had just become a grandmother. “Someone said, now that you have a grandchild you can make dolls,” she recalled, adding her first effort was supposed to be “a little cute rag doll” for her eldest grandchild, Alison. But anyone familiar with Carefoot’s vivid fabric and mixed media works – not to mention her vivacious Middle Eastern dance performances (still a popular instructor, she limits her dancing these days to private performances) – will know that she is seldom content with the safe and conventional. “I thought, ‘this is boring,’” she said. “I started wondering how I could push it.” Always intuitive in her creative process, Carefoot found her solution was to start adding elements that spoke to how she was feeling “on the inside” – since her dolls don’t take long to make, she could indulge a sense of spontaneity. “I started a Jungian thing with them,” she said. As she notes in her artist’s statement, “the act of placing an experience or a philosophy into a ‘homunculus’ (very small human or humanoid creature) serves to contain it and is a way of examining it...they help me see myself.” “It’s safe there; it’s in that little doll and it’s

mode is to take the basic elements of a secondhand doll – husband Tom is helpful as her dismantling technician – and rework it using her vast file of collected fabrics and objects. “All my artwork is intuitive.

Going backwards is not my style.”

Cake for the choirboys crowns Now Available

Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Let them eat cake. It’s not the advice of Marie Antoinette, but rather of the Emperor Maximillian of Austria, who established the tradition of boy choristers as part of the musical staff at his court in Vienna – cited as the origins of today’s Vienna Boys Choir – in 1498. That’s why, when the 26-strong Mozartchor group of the choir completes its White Rock Concerts series performance at White Rock Baptist Church tonight (Feb. 26), two representatives of Fieldstone Artisan Breads will march down the aisle with a specially baked cake for the singers. Although composer Anton Bruckner, once conductor of the choir, was well known for rewarding choir members with cake – provided they sang well – according to White Rock Concerts artistic director George Zukerman, the tradition goes back more than half a millennium, as far as Maximillian himself. “He decreed that, if they sang well, they would have a cake baked for them,� he said. “Since they’ve always sang well, the tradition has stuck. Generation upon generation of Vienna choir boys have had cake after

Fieldstone Artisan Breads owner Paul Hanley is baking a special cake for the Vienna Boys Choir’s performance. they sang, including (later famed conductor) Herbert von Karajan.� Other famous names who have been associated with the group over the centuries include Mozart (as a composer) and erstwhile choristers Haydn and Schubert. Zukerman said having Fieldstone sponsor the event and the cake as part of the White Rock season “seemed a natural mix.� He and his wife, violinist and teacher Erika Bennedik – whose family used to billet Vienna Boys Choir members when she was a young girl in Germany – are regular customers at the bakery. While Fieldstone owners Paul and Nicola Hanley won’t be present at the event – they’ll be home caring for their not-yet one year-

old twins – they are proud to play a part in continuing such a venerable tradition, Paul said. “This is quite an honour – and so nice to be asked,� he added, noting that Fieldstone, where he has been baker for eight years and owner for three, makes a point of following traditional, hand-made recipes. The cake will be quite large, he said – “a real two-person job.� “We’ll be making them a Sacher torte, which is one of the first cake recipes put together, named for the Sacher Hotel in Vienna. But I decided to put a little twist on it,� Hanley said. “Instead of the usual apricot marmelade, we’ll use a French raspberry jam. I expect the boys are tired of the other kind.� The cake should be more than enough for the singers, he said. “Maybe everyone in the audience will get to try some as well.� The Vienna Boys Choir appearance for White Rock Concerts is part of a tour of the U.S. and Canada by the Mozartchor, one of four subgroups of the choir that perform in Austria and at venues around the world. Next up for the series will be a March 19 performance by 21-year-old Canadian pianist Avan Yu. To subscribe to the concert season, and for more information, call 604-535-6692.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Ravens advance Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

After rolling through the Final Four tournament without a loss, the Semiahmoo peewee A2 Ravens are headed for provincials. The Ravens captured the Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association’s peewee tier 2 banner last weekend, after two wins and a tie at the Mission-hosted tournament. Semiahmoo opened with a 4-3 win over Burnaby Winter Club, and followed that with a 2-2 tie against the hosts from Mission. The team got back into the win column for its final contest, a 3-2 win over North Shore Winter Club. But even after their successful three-game stretch, the team had to wait through one more game to see if another team would tie them in points. When that didn’t happen, they returned to the ice in street clothes to accept their championship banner. “At that point, we knew we were going to provincials, but we didn’t know if we’d finish first (at Final Four) or not, so it was pretty exciting,” said Ravens head coach Ronnie Paterson, whose son Tyler plays on the team. “We’ve been virtually undefeated all year in our league. It’s been a pretty magical season.” Both Semiahmoo’s peewee A teams advanced to Final Four tournaments. The A1 squad – fresh off a trip to the Quebec International Peewee Tournament – began its quest for a provincial berth earlier this week. After the game, Paterson, well known on the Peninsula as coowner of the Surrey Eagles, stressed to his team just how special a trip to provincials is. “I’ve been coaching minor hockey for 19 years now, and only once has one of my teams made it to provincials, and that was way back in 1984 with Seafair (Richmond),” he said. “So I made sure to articulate to our players that this isn’t something that happens every day.” The peewee A2 provincials begin March 6 in Penticton.

Bayside Sharks’ Matt Miles holds onto the ball while being tackled by a Burnaby Lake defender.

2 SHOWS IN ONE!

Sharks roll over Burnaby Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Three weeks into the season, the Bayside Sharks finally put a mark in the win column after cruising to a 44-10 win over Burnaby Lake Saturday at South Surrey Athletic Park. The Sharks are now 1-2 in Canadian Direct Insurance premier rugby league standings. Both losses came on the road to start the year, but the premier outfit will have a chance to even its win-lose record tomorrow (Saturday), when they host the Velox Valhallians, who had the best regular-season record among premier sides last season, and are 2-1 so far this spring. But as well as Velox has played of late, the Sharks will be no slouches themselves after last week’s lopsided victory over Burnaby. The Sharks were led by a trio of key veterans, as Isimeli Sigarua, Corey Wood and Brodie Henderson – who was named player of the game – each had two tries apiece.

Sigarua’s two tries both game during the game’s frantic opening minutes – a start that featured three tries between the two sides, and saw Bayside leading 12-5 early. Bayside’s other tries came from prop Soko Kacj – who barreled over a pair of Burnaby defenders en route to finding pay dirt – Neil Kinskofer and No. 8 Pat Bickerton. In reality, the Sharks’ score could have even been a few ticks higher, had Eric Sugawara – who is almost automatic kicking converts – not went down with injury midway through the contest. The Semiahmoo grad successfully converted Sigarau’s first try, but after that, replacement kickers Brodie Henderson, Tony LaCarte and Chris Pack each missed conversion attempts. Pack did finally split the uprights later in the game, slotting through a kick after Henderson’s second score at the 25-minute mark. Saturday’s tilt against the Valhallians begins at 2:45 p.m. Prior to that, the two club’s first divi-

sion teams will hit the field at 1 p.m. Like their premier counterparts, Bayside’s first division side is also coming off a win against Burnaby Lake, beating them 20-15 Saturday. The Sharks trailed throughout the back-and-forth affair, but took the lead for good when Adam Roberts scored a try in the 66th minute, to put the Sharks up 17-15. Mike Pinfield converted the try, and added a penalty kick 13 minutes later to seal the deal. Making the win even more impressive was the fact that Bayside was forced to play a man down for 50 minutes, after Clayton Fisher received a red card 30 minutes into the contest – less than 10 minutes after notching his team’s first try. In second-division action, the Sharks again won in comeback fashion, after a long scoring run from Rob Pargee – with five minutes left in the game – pulled Bayside even with Burnaby, 10-10, and a Mike Hill convert put the team in front.

There’s a pretty slim chance that on your usual route from A to B, you’ll come across the aroma of fresh-baked bread or the sound of apples tumbling into a wooden crate. Come to think of it, when did you hear much more than alarm clocks, meeting reminders, ringtones, horns honking and that voice in your head saying, “Are we there yet?” It’s different here. Here it’s about taking your time, losing track of it and living for the moment. It’s about the barista who knows your drink or buying salmon from the fisherman who caught it. It’s watching the steam rise from a warm croissant. It’s hand-made pasta, picking fresh herbs and apples with the leaves still on. It’s fresh; it’s a new way of thinking about life. Maybe it’s the atmosphere and the comfort of knowing nothing is more than a few footsteps away. It’s a very short grocery list, and never running out of your favourite wine. It’s the after dinner plans you didn’t plan, or

Semiahmoo goalkeeper Kate Connor was unbeatable, and picked up her 14th shutout of the season.

Important point Peace Arch United’s men’s U21 team may not have won last weekend in Chilliwack, but the point they earned by tying the host team may prove important down the stretch. After spotting Chilliwack a 2-0 lead in the first 10 minutes of the game, Peace Arch clawed its way back to

even losing those last few inches off your waistline. Just imagine what life would be like without the long or even the short drive. Would you do more? Plan less? Look at the life around you? Maybe you would leave your car keys on the kitchen table, make plans on a whim, and eat what’s in season, not what’s in the fridge. You could walk to the store, walk the dog and walk off last night’s dinner. And while we can’t shape the 9 to 5 world around us, we sure can take control of life after hours. We can decide to live life. Maybe for the weekend or maybe only for 45 minutes. Whatever the amount, it still feels a lot better than the regular routine. And really, who wants “routine” in their vocabulary anyway? So come down and visit us. You might start to smell the roses, or the fresh ground coffee, or that warm croissant. And who knows? You might just find yourself living.

Series begins The race for the Fred Page Cup begins tonight (Friday) for the Surrey Eagles, when the B.C. Hockey League club takes on their division rival Langley Chiefs in the first game of a best-ofseven series. Games 1 and 2 are played tonight and Saturday at the Langley Events Centre, with the next two games slated for South Surrey Arena on Monday and Tuesday. All four games start at 7 p.m. The two teams know each other well, having faced off 10 times during the regular season, with Langley winning seven of those battles. The Eagles got the better of the Chiefs in last year’s playoffs, however, winning a first-round best-of-five series 3-1. “It’s always a battle, always a war,” Surrey Eagles head coach Shane Kuss said of the matchup.

Hair cut for charity  from page A35 makes wigs from human hair and gives them to young girls undergoing chemotherapy. At some points during the haircut, Henry had tears in her eyes, while at other times she had an ear-to-ear smile, as her teammates took turns lopping off her long ponytails. “It was tears of realizing that I am really loved,” Henry said. “The reason I never accepted Christ before was because I didn’t like myself, I didn’t have love for myself. “Cutting off your hair and realizing your looks don’t matter, that the love transcends that is an amazing feeling. So it was definitely tears of joy and a little bit of tears of ‘wow, there is no going back.’” And while her new look was drastically different, Henry was energized by the fresh start. “I felt this year was really bad for me and it caused me to reflect on things,” she said. “Vanity is something I struggle with and I think cutting off

my hair will really humble me as well as externalize this great change I felt on the inside.” Spartans coach Graham Roxburgh was not surprised with how many of Henry’s teammates turned out to support her. “She embodies what I want our program to be about,” he said. “She is a servant (of God), she has got leadership, she is committed, and as evidenced by today, she is loved by our team. “Whenever you are dealing with identity issues and some of the things that give you security and comfort, and those things get taken away from you, that puts you in a tough spot.” In addition to donating her hair, Henry also raised money, with half of the funds going to the Vancouver Women’s Shelter and the other half for the Spartans’ upcoming trip to Paraguay, where in addition to playing against local teams, they will help out at orphanages, soccer camps for children and in soup kitchens.

Terence (Terry) Malcolm

After a courageous and stoic battle against cancer, Terry passed away peacefully on February 13th, 2010 in White Rock, BC. with his family by his side. He is survived by his mother Isabel, sister Noreen, brother Russ, sister-in-law Heather Stewart, nieces Shawna, Carla and Kadence and nephews Shane, Charles and Dario and his many cousins from both the Lamb and Prowse families. Terry grew up on a farm in western Manitoba. Joining the Royal Canadian Air Cadets in 1959 introduced him to aviation and led him to being awarded a flying scholarship in 1964. After High School, he commenced working for Maple Leaf Aviation in Brandon, MB where he obtained his Commercial, Instructor and Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licenses. Terry joined Pacific Western Airlines in the fall of 1973. Throughout his 33+ year airline career he was a part of several airline mergers while being based in Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and Vancouver. Terry had the pleasure of flying to all continents - from the Arctic Islands to Africa, from Europe to the Middle East and Asia. He retired as a Vancouver based Air Canada B767 Captain in April of 2007. His love of outdoors was a major part of Terry’s life spending time with his friends hiking the West Coast Trail, skiing at Whistler and the Okanagan, boating on Lake Osoyoos and riding his Harley to San Francisco was a happy time and place for him. Before he left us, he asked that the following thought be kept in our minds: “Don’t cry because I am gone, but smile for all the fun times we had together.” His family is thankful for the loving care and attention he received from Dr. Perold, the White Rock Palliative Home Care Nurses, the Staff at Peach Arch Hospital and the B.C. Cancer Agency on West 10th Avenue in Vancouver. If desired, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 565 - 10th Avenue West, Vancouver, BC V5Z 1L3 as an expression of sympathy and remembrance of Terence.

by SIMMONS

As a part of a 450-store buying group, K&D has better buying power than other big named retailers, which allows them to offer their customers low prices, while still maintaining the flexibility to purchase for their own customers’ needs. K&D takes pride in running their store with honesty and integrity, which, along with quality service and products, have become the cornerstones of their business. This dedication to customer satisfaction has contributed to their success in running a business in the White Rock/South Surrey community for so many years, despite ever increasing competition.

THAT’S RIGHT …

Another factor contributing to K&D’s success on the Peninsula is their high level of involvement in the community. The owners support many local charities and have been involved in fundraising galas for a variety of causes. K&D is also a proud member of the South Surrey White Rock Chamber of Commerce as well as the Better Business Bureau.

White Rock Eyecare

EYECARE FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY 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 change in vision that Linda & Jas 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.

INVENTORY CLEAROUT Natalia Jewellers is liquidating all of their inventory for their BIG move. Everything cost or below cost. Watches, Diamond Jewellery, Gemstone Jewellery.

EVERY SINGLE PIECE MUST GO!!!

Natalia Jewellers at Morgan Crossing will become the forefront for custom designed jewellery within its area, having a fully operating, technologically advanced factory. With the use of Matrix 3d CADCAM software, Natalia Jewellers can design or redesign a ring exactly to a customer’s specification. The digital process allows customers to be heavily involved in the design process, making small changes such as adding different types of stones, and seeing on the computer what the final result will look like. This technology is revolutionizing the jewellery industry and Natalia Jewellers is proud to offer this service to its customers. Natalia Jewellers will also be manufacturing much of their own designs in house; meaning lower retail prices for their customers and individuality and uniqueness of their merchandise. Having over three thousand jewellery design models, Natalia Jewellers is able to exchange a customers’ outdated piece of jewellery, melt the gold and recast a ‘brand new’ piece of jewellery based on the customer’s choice of model. While the transition to the new Morgan Crossing location will mean an exquisitely redesigned store and a vast selection of unique, highend pieces; the one thing that will not be changing is the friendly, knowledgeable customer service that Natalia Jewellers is known for.

Benefitting from advanced training in different branches of dentistry, Dr. Kennedy is able to approach treatments from a few different angles, taking into consideration the individual patient’s situation. “If a patient has a pretty complicated problem, we can usually give them a couple of different options,” Dr. Kennedy said. Because Smile Solutions Dental Centre prides itself on being able to provide a full spectrum of dental services, it’s rare for patients to require out-of-office referral to specialist dental offices, as most dental procedures are offered inhouse. And despite having state-of-the art facilities and brand new equipment at the Russell Avenue clinic, Smile Solutions maintains standard prices for their services, to allow for treatments to be within reach for their patients.

Complete Family Dentistry For your FREE consultation on any dental subject, please call NATHAN B. KENNEDY Dentist

Services range from basic cleanings, fillings, crown and bridge work to root canal therapy, orthodontics (including Invisalign and Damon System braces) and implant dentistry.

202 - 15451 Russell Ave., White Rock

And as the days start to get longer and warmer, Anna and her staff are getting ready for a fashionable spring and summer season with plenty of exciting looks.

Sizes 4-18

According to Anna, longer tops over straight legged pants or leggings will be a popular look this season, as well as tuxedo-inspired shirts with high collars â&#x20AC;&#x201C; belts are also important this season. A very popular item are skinny t-shirts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; made with lycra in the middle that smooths any bumps or lumps for a stylish, slimming look. Colours are expected to be a little more subdued this spring, with plenty of natural shades of cream. While metallics are still hot, the trend is starting to move away from silver and focus more on goldens. Of course, adding a splash of colour with accessories â&#x20AC;&#x201C; jewellery or a bright handbag â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will be a popular way to accent the natural tones this season.

Congratulations Canada!

Knitopia Wools Whether you have a lifetime of knitting experience or you’re picking up the needles for the first time, Knitopia Wool on Johnston Road is the perfect one-stop shop for all your knitting needs. With a beautiful and diverse selection of wools, patterns, needles, shawl pins and spinning supplies, you are sure to find what you need for your latest project at this specialty store. But you will also find much more than supplies at Knitopia, according to owner Lynne, who said she and her staff offer a world of knitting expertise to their clients.

Lynne Anderson

For our Athletes MEDAL-WINNING ACHIEVEMENTS

From selecting a pattern, to finding the appropriate type of wool to work with, the staff at Knitopia will help you through your project, even offering assistance if you get stuck along the way. “We want to see you succeed with your project, so we will help you with that,” Lynne says. “We will make sure that you’re able to finish that project.” In addition to a great selection of wool – the majority of which is natural – Knitopia also carries a number of unique books you’re not likely to find anywhere else. The store also carries spinning fibre, which allows their customers to spin their own knitting project, creating a garment that is distinctly their own. Most of the spinning fibres are from Canadian sheep, with the exception of a few from New Zealand, and Knitopia even carries some fibres that comes from local sheep. In an ongoing effort to expand the knitting community on the Peninsula, Knitopia also offers classes for all skill levels. Beginners classes are taught by local knitting aficionado Marilyn, who Lynne says is quite the popular instructor.

We are so proud of you!

“She does such a good job – her students just love her,” she said. Another up-and-coming knitting expert you may find at Knitopia is Lynne’s husband Chris, described by Lynne as one of the store’s “greatest assets.” Her husband’s interest in knitting is a sign that men are finally starting to pick up needles and experience the joy of the craft.

Knitopia

The store fully supports both traditional and non-traditional knitting styles can help customers with nearly all aspects of knitting. Regardless of your experience level, Lynne encourages knitters from all walks of life to visit Knitopia Wools and let the friendly staff help get you on your way.

1411 Johnston Road Hillcrest Mall 778-294-5440

“You’re buying more than just wools and patterns,” Lynne says. “You’re buying entertainment and self-satisfaction.”

Schill Insurance Providing peace of mind without the headaches, Schill Insurance is dedicated to protecting you and the things you’ve worked hardest for. For nearly 40 years, the knowledgeable advisors at Schill Insurance have been working with clients to provide the protection they need - whether it’s home, auto, business or marine Al Schill insurance - and making lives easier throughout the Lower Mainland. It’s a combination of passion, expertise and creativity that drives the advisors to find their clients the best coverage possible, as well as a willingness to listen through every step of the process. This helps to not only provide clients with the best deal on coverage, but it also eases the claims process, as advisors work hard to ensure claims are handled quickly and professionally. Born and raised on the Peninsula, Al, Matt and Jarett Schill are following in the footsteps of their father Dave, who founded Schill Insurance in Port Coquitlam in 1972. Empowered employees, strong client relationships and a dedication to personal service that is next to none has helped Schill Insurance grow to five locations across the Lower Mainland, including two on the Peninsula. Because the Schill Insurance team knows how important home protection is, they take an innovative approach to finding protection for their clients, basing their priorities on their clients’ standards as opposed to the industry’s standards. The same goes for auto and marine insurance coverage - working closely with the client, advisors will determine the options that best suit the client’s needs, and ensure any fine print is clear and easy to understand. Schill Insurance also works closely with the business community on the Peninsula, identifying risks, providing insight on how to reduce risk and protecting businesses of all sizes. A commitment to delivering quality insurance products to each and every client with an emphasis on friendly, personable service has earned Schill Insurance a reputation as one of the best in the community - as well as many repeat clients. Whether you’re starting out or settling down, Schill Insurance has what it takes to keep you good and safe.

Sandcastle Fitness

Sandcastle Fitness

BIG CITY GYM

Keeping fit and getting regular exercise is an essential part of overall health, and finding the right place to work out is equally as important.

with a Small Town Feel

The fitness club you join can make all the difference when it comes to reaching your goals – an unfriendly or unwelcoming atmosphere will do little to inspire you to do your best and work out consistently.

FROM TOP LEFT:

Sandcastle Fitness on 152 Street is changing the way people think about fitness clubs.

JENNIFER & BRAD (owners) , NATALIE (manager), NAVI, RYAN, & STEPHANIE

Natalie Dunnill Manager

With an emphasis on a warm, welcoming environment for people of all ages and fitness levels, Sandcastle Fitness truly is a small town fitness club with all the amenities of a big city gym. Locally owned, Sandcastle Fitness isn’t part of a large corporate chain, and its members are more than just names in a large computer database. The owners, management and staff know the importance of maintaining a smalltown feel and non-intimidating atmosphere, and go the extra mile to get to know their members by name. On top of the club’s community feel, another thing that sets Sandcastle Fitness apart from other gyms is their no pressure and no commitment policy – members pay on a monthly basis, and there are no locked-in contracts to sign. Just because Sandcastle Fitness has a small-town, community feel doesn’t mean it lacks the facilities and apparatuses needed for a great work out. The 20,000 sq.-ft. club boasts two fully equipped gyms – one co-ed and one ladies only – including all the cardio equipment, free weights and other gear you’d expect to see at any of the corporate chain clubs. The club offers a variety of group fitness classes, including step, pilates and yoga, all of which are included in the monthly membership price, with no extra charges. Sandcastle Fitness was also recently Johnny G Spin certified – one of just a few clubs to hold the distinction – which means the club is able to offer more variations of the popular indoor cycling program. With child minding services on site for as young as newborns and certified personal trainers on hand to offer fitness help and advice, Sandcastle Fitness is the perfect place to reach your fitness goals – whether you’re a bodybuilding pro or embarking on your first work out routine. To learn more about this fun and friendly community fitness club, visit Sandcastle Fitness today at 1938 152 Street and take the first step to a happier, healthier you.

21st Century Weight Loss…

Imagine Laserworks

combining acupuncture, nutrition & laser technology

Whether you’re looking to lose weight, quit smoking, relieve depression or overcome addiction, Imagine Laserworks on Martin Drive can help you achieve your goals and get on your way to a healthier life. The clinic uses low level laser therapy which is applied to specific acupuncture points on different parts of the body, depending on the specific problem being Dr. Edmund Wong treated. Results for patients treated with low level laser therapy have been exceptional. For smokers looking to kick the nicotine habit, Imagine Laserworks has seen up to 95 per cent quit rates, with many clients quitting after just one therapy session. Weight loss clients have also seen a high level success, with laser treatment effectively speeding up metabolism, decreasing appetite, controlling hunger cravings and increasing endorphin levels. Imagine Laserworks also uses low level laser therapy to treat drug and alcohol addiction by minimizing symptoms of withdrawal. Used in combination and nutritional supplements, herbs and exercise – to detoxify and repair the body – laser therapy on the ears, fingers, wrists and feet releases a flow of natural endorphins, creating calm and relaxation. The physical dependence on the abusive substance is then relieved, and symptoms including anxiety, restlessness, fatigue, cramps, vomiting and depression may be eliminated or greatly reduced. Clients who have undergone treatment for substance abuse also typically report fewer cravings, improved sleep, more energy and a sense of self-empowerment. While treatments at Imagine Laserworks are not a quick fix, the success of laser therapy will help to relieve a number of withdrawal symptoms that are associated with quitting substance abuse, and will also restore the body’s energy and internal function to stronger levels. Imagine Laserworks also uses low level laser therapy – which is safe, painless and drug free – to treat depression, stress, anxiety and insomnia. If you’re self-conscious about your smile because your teeth aren’t as brilliant white as they used to be, Imagine Laserworks also offers BEYOND WhiteSpa Select Treatment. With just three, 20-minute sessions, the gentle whitening gel will produce long-lasting, dramatic results, with reduced risk of sensitivity and no exposure to harmful UV light or heat. To find out more about any of the safe and effective treatments available at Imagine Laserworks, call the office at 604-538-2106 and take the first step to feeling great.

Petite Fashions

Are You 5’4” or Under?

Combining years of expertise in the fashion industry with friendly staff in a fun environment, Petite Fashions on 152 Street has become “the perfect fit” for many Peninsula women.

We’ve got a big selection of exciting and affordable clothing from top name designers just for you!

Catering to women who are petite – described by owner Marni Tritt as 5’4” and under, not necessarily a size 0 – Petite Fashions is the place to find unique casual Carol and Jean lifestyle wear you’d be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. “Petite means shorter in stature, it’s not necessarily for people who are really skinny,” Marni explains. “We carry up to size 16.”

• Bianca Nygard • Simon Chang Denim • Conrad C • Fen-nelli • FDJ • Graff • Cafe au Lait • Jag Jeans • Ingenuity • Lana Lee • Jones N-Y • City Girl • Pure Knitwear • London Fog • Louben • Parkhurst • Spanner • Proportion • Petite • Picadilly Fashions • Yak Magic

This family-run business has been outfitting women with the latest fashions for more than 12 years on the Peninsula, with over 40 years experience at their Vancouver location. With brand names including Not Your Daughter’s Jeans, Conrad C Petite and Louben to name a few, plus a great selection of jewellery, scarves and bags, the emphasis is on high quality, unique pieces at affordable prices.

HouseWarmings Whether you’re looking to furnish your entire home or just spruce up a room, having quality, unique furnishings are the key to transforming a house into a home. With organic styles inspired by nature, HouseWarmings in South Surrey has a wide selection of furnishings and decor and something to fit every style and setting.

Friday, February 26, 2010 Peace Arch News

Owner Briar Codesmith – who opened the boutique store in Elgin Corners more than three years ago – makes it a priority to carry locally made products, in an Briar Codesmith effort to support Canadian artisans and craftspeople. HouseWarmings’ wide selection of beautifully crafted furniture includes pieces from Sahara Maple out of Abbotsford, Prowood Design from Surrey and Stylus upholstery from Burnaby. Briar has also recently added a line of reclaimed furniture from a company called Village Green – including a coffee table, dining room table and end table made from an old army airplane hanger. In addition to a number of unique, local furnishings, HouseWarmings is also a haven of items made from natural materials, including stone wine racks, bamboo sheets and towels and organic body care products. A new line of organic kitchen products by Upper Canada include dish soap, lotion, hand wash and intensive hand repair, available in aromatic Lavender Bergamot or tantalizing Nutmeg Ginger. You’ll also find soy tea light candles at the lowest price around – just $12 per box of 12, well below the normal retail price. For sprucing up your home’s walls, HouseWarmings carries the popular WT Designs wallflowers line by B.C.-based artist Brad Dinwoodie. These beautiful and elegant 8x8-inch wooden tiles sell for just $49, and there are dozens of different designs to choose from.

• Locally crafted solid wood furniture • Simplicity soy candles • Giclee Canvas Prints • Made to order sofas & chairs

While providing unique, natural and quality furnishings crafted in Canada is an important aspect of HouseWarmings’ business, so is supporting the White Rock / South Surrey community in any way they can. With a signature table called Florio that HouseWarmings donates to charities to auction off – such as this year’s Night of Hope for breast cancer research – the store is able to give back and reciprocate the community’s support. They also often give out gift certificates for local schools, organizations and sports teams to help out their fundraising efforts. Having recently returned from a five-day gift show at the International Centre in Toronto, Briar is thrilled with a number of new, unique items in store and excited to share them with Peninsula shoppers. Whether you’re in the market for some new artwork, furniture or natural body products, visit HouseWarmings at 14016 32 Ave. for unique items to beautify your home.

Roca Blanca Dance Studio Ever wish you could learn how to dance? With smaller class sizes, no partner required and certified instructors creating a fun atmosphere, Roca Blanca Dance Studio is a great place to take the leap from the sidelines onto the dance floor. While Roca Blanca offers a huge variety of dance styles – including tango, disco hustle, foxtrot and waltz – owner Brian Udal says it’s the East Coast swing, salsa, cha cha and rumba that are drawing the biggest crowds. Brian Udal “Hands down, those are the most popular,” Brian says, adding that learning these dance styles allows you to utilize your new skills in a variety of dance settings. “Those are all the ones that you’re going to get the most mileage out of.” Social group classes are a great place to get your dancing feet wet, and are offered in six-week sessions which won’t tie you down with too much of a commitment. However, private, one-on-one classes offered at Roca Blanca are ideal for refining your dancing skills – and perfect for couples about to walk down the aisle who want a memorable and elegant first dance at their wedding – as students are given the instructor’s undivided attention, and the ability to move at a fast or slow pace. “You just learn so much faster when you work on a private level – it’s a great way to zero in on what you really want,” Brian explains. “You’re going to get maximum results from private lessons.” Private lessons are also a more affordable option than some people might think, at just $60 per hour – far less what some studios charge – private training isn’t out of reach for those who want to benefit from some one-on-one time. New to Roca Blanca are dance performances – think Dancing With The Stars, with choreography, full costumes and exciting music – right before your eyes. Perfect for a school function, gala event, restaurant or wedding, these performances are sure to thrill any crowd. Roca Blanca also offers one of the world’s finest teacher training certification programs, open to anyone with a love of dance and desire to learn and help others. “This is an unbelievable opportunity to get on board and to learn this craft,” Brian says. “It’s affordable, and it’s right here in your own back yard.” The studio’s next teacher training session – which will prepare students to take the certification exam in American Rhythm Tango – starts March 14. Roca Blanca also holds alternative Friday night dance lessons/parties and social outings – sign up for the email newsletter at www.rocablancadance.ca to connect with the local dance community. Whether you’ve been dancing all your life or want to test out your moves for the first time, Roca Blanca Dance Studio can help you discover the joy of dancing.

South Point Dental Centre

i s CLEAR LY y ou r b est ch o ice for a b etter Smile!

Dental care is an essential part of overall health, and it’s equally important that the care you seek is reliable, professional and comfortable. The team at South Point Dental Centre make it their priority to provide high-quality family dental care, from basic cleanings to extensive dental procedures. For more than nine years, South Point Dental has offered its patients – ranging from toddlers to senior citizens – a wide range of treatment options, specifically tailored to meet their patients’ individual needs.

C al l f o r a c o m p l i m e n t a r y c o n s u l t a ti o n .

Owner Dr. Edmund Wong, along with Dr. Maureen Piche and Dr. Angie Lohachitranont and their friendly, professional staff will ensure your visit to South Point Dental is pleasant from start to finish. However, despite the reassurance that comes with a friendly and reliable dentalcare team, for some people, a visit to the dentist is something they dread for weeks leading up to their appointment. One option for patients at South Point Dental who may have a hard time visiting the dentist due to anxiety or fears is sedation dentistry. This technique allows even the most apprehensive of patients to remain relaxed and stress-free throughout their visit, no matter how simple or complex the procedure. Visits to the dentist will no longer be filled with dread, as fearful patients are able to receive the dental care they need in a calm, pleasant environment. Have you ever thought your smile could benefit from a little straightening, but don’t want to commit to brackets and wires? Invisalign is another popular service available at South Point Dental Centre – an alternative to metal braces for those who want to straighten their teeth and maximize the beauty of their smile. Not only is Invisalign nearly invisible, it’s also removable, which means you can brush, floss, eat and drink as normal while in treatment, without fighting metal brackets or wires in your mouth, which can be cumbersome and cause discomfort. The procedure also uses 3D imaging technology that allows the patient to view the treatment before starting, and provides a virtual depiction of how straight their teeth will be upon completion. Give your smile the care and attention it deserves – visit South Point Dental Centre and see for yourself their commitment to prompt and pleasant experiences that will keep your smile looking its very best.

Mortgage rules take steam out of home market Jeff Nagel Black Press

Tighter rules to qualify for a mortgage may put some downward pressure on Lower Mainland housing prices. Federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty last week unveiled changes aimed at preventing a future real estate market collapse and resulting U.S.-style financial collapse here. Behind the move is the expectation interest rates will rise in the months ahead as the economy recovers and growing concern people buying now with cheap credit may be unable to keep up payments down the road. “It takes a bit of steam out of the housing market,” said Central One Credit Union economist Helmut Pastrick. The changes require buyers to have a bit of extra wriggle room to afford higher payments should rates rise. Buyers will have to prove they could qualify for a five-year fixed term in order to get any type of CMHCinsured mortgage. That’s up from a threeyear qualification threshold now. Current home owners who remortgage won’t be able to withdraw as much cash as before – they’ll now have to keep a minimum 10 per cent equity, up from five per cent now. And anyone wanting a government-insured mortgage to buy an investment home they won’t live in will have to come up with a 20 per cent down payment, up from five per cent now. Flaherty said the plan is to rein in people who speculate on real estate at the limit of their credit or use their home as an ATM. The finance minister did not move to raise the minimum down payment from five per cent or reduce the maximum term of 35 years for insured mortgages – potential measures he had previously floated. Pastrick said the more modest changes shouldn’t threaten B.C.’s economic recovery from the recession. “The intent is to reduce the element of the housing market where people are just buying for short-term gains and pushing

up housing prices to higher levels.” But he said it could cut into the supply of rental housing on the market owned by small

real estate investors who may be deterred by some of the changes. Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association CEO

Peter Simpson said he’s still concerned the measures may go too far at a time when the economic recovery is fragile.

He noted the HST will add to the cost of some homes starting July 1 and a hike in mortgage rates is likely by mid-year.

“It could just combine to create a high degree of buyer resistance,” he said. “First-time home buyers drive the market. If they’re

dormant, the whole market becomes dormant very quickly and that affects jobs on site with the construction of homes.” FIDO STORES

Olympic transit loads hit 1.6 million users per day Jeff Nagel Black Press

The record-smashing number of passengers taking transit during the Olympics has blown away TransLink’s pre-Games projections. Plans were laid based on an expected one-third jump in transit use to a million passengers a day – roughly 250,000 more than usual. Instead, the system is carrying an average of 1.6 million people a day – more than double the norm and 60 per cent more than expected. “We just simply did not expect the number of residents coming into town to take it all in downtown,” TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie said. “What’s really surprised us was the number of people who came over from Vancouver Island.” BC Ferries has added extra sailings to carry several thousand foot passengers a day and extra buses have been scrambled to pick them up. Transit day passes are now sold aboard the ferries. Large numbers of people have also come from the U.S. and are

Albertans Phillip, Ted and Matt Caddel are upbeat about their daily trip downtown to catch Olympic action. using park and rides at stations in Richmond and Surrey, Hardie added. He said it’s difficult to say whether TransLink would have tried to obtain more buses for the Games had it known three times the number of expected new riders would show up. All 20 Canada Line trains are often running, as well as all three SeaBuses, and at times TransLink has thrown on even more than its 160-bus Olympic reserve fleet by pulling coaches from the mainte-

nance yards. “It says something about the capacity of the system to handle a lot of people – as long as nobody takes any days off and we run absolutely everything that rolls or floats.” The system hit a perfect storm of demand on Friday and Saturday, when good weather and popular concerts and events drew immense crowds to downtown. An estimated 250,000 people rode the Canada Line those days – two and a half times the preGames record. The Expo and Millennium Lines are carrying an average 370,000 daily (up 54 per cent), SeaBus is carrying 48,000 (up 200 per cent) and West Coast Express is up 78 per cent to nearly 20,000 passengers a day. Wait times to board SeaBus and downtown SkyTrain stations have at times approached one hour, Hardie said, adding initial reports of waits of up to 90 minutes to board SeaBus Saturday appear overstated. He credits the patience of passengers and the fact the lines do move.
