Accusations ‘a witch-hunt’

Former district staffers charged

Biologist shares home

Bird man of Surrey

A

s David Hancock swings open the gate to his yard, he is greeted by his regular houseguests, including Bahama pintail and blue-billed ruddy ducks. “Hello guys, how are you?” Hancock says in a melodic voice, as the waterfowl wade through a pond stretched across the lawn. The South Surrey acreage is home to about 20 bird species, some permanent residents, others just visiting. A pair of Canada geese come to Hancock’s property annually to raise their young, and this year they have four babies just learning to fly. Hancock, a biologist, says the youngsters will have seven to 10 days to master the skill before the family leaves and returns next February. Other feathered members of the backyard community are heard long before they are seen. As Hancock navigates his way along the pond’s rock wall, he stops to listen to the cry of a nearby baby pileated woodpecker. It’s the first time he has heard its call. While most of Hancock’s guests seem calm and indifferent to his approach, he steps more carefully around the aggressive, full-grown sandhill cranes.  see page 11

Four years after they resigned under mysterious circumstances, two former Surrey School District employees have been charged with fraud and theft. Robert (Bob) Chadwick, a former associate superintendent, and his administrative assistant Barbara Chadwick (neé Moore) were sued in April 2009 by the school district, which claims the pair pocketed thousands of district dollars through fraud and kick-back schemes over several years. The two resigned in October 2006, with the school district unable to reveal why due to confidentiality rules. Both are now fac- Robert Chadwick ing charges of theft over ex-superintendent $5,000 and fraud over $5,000. Robert has also been charged with breach of trust by a public officer. In a statement of claim filed last year, the district alleged cheques from San Diego State University (SDSU) totaling US$167,689.32 payable to the school district in 2002 and 2003 were deposited to the Chadwicks’ accounts at Coast Capital Savings Credit Union for their personal use. SDSU had a contract with the school district to provide classroom accommodation, instruction and support for its International Educational Leadership Program. The school district claimed Robert, who managed the program, and Barbara opened an SDSU Fund Account “off record” to the financial affairs of the school district and that there was no accounting for the receipt and disbursement of the money. The pair were also alleged to have received financial kickbacks from several school district contracts for supplies and services.  see page 4

Surrey RCMP can take a cue from local police departments in Delta, Vancouver and Abbotsford about how to communicate effectively with the public – something that is not always done well in Surrey. Internal RCMP strife, and there is plenty of it, should not affect day-to-day policing here, and if there is no way to prevent that, the city should have the ability to set up its own police force without paying a huge financial penalty for doing so. Surrey RCMP have done an effective job of setting up zone policing in Surrey, and this system has worked well. It is not common in the RCMP, but it makes sense in Surrey. Many Surrey RCMP officers have done a tremendous job of policing this community over the years. There have been far more good apples than bad. But the bad apples draw the most attention, and Surrey RCMP has had a few. The local detachment needs to have more ability to swiftly discipline such people. Current RCMP disciplinary measures are far too lax, with police remaining on “desk duty” and drawing full pay for years while the criminal charges they are facing wend their way through the court system. Police must be held to a much higher standard than the rest of us, because they enforce the law. If Surrey RCMP can show the public that the detachment is willing to live up to such high standards, there is no reason it can’t remain our local police force.

news Residents campaign against wireless technology in public places

Free Wi-Fi at beach fuels health debate Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Opponents of wireless technology are speaking out about the dangers of electro-pollution, following the introduction of free Wi-Fi and Bluetooth along White Rock beach. Locals, including some who are part of a group organizing against unfettered use of the technology, say it is linked to a multitude of health issues, from headaches to heart palpitations. But those behind the Tourism White Rock’s new BlueZone say many such concerns are based on propaganda, not fact. The BlueZone is “well within” industry standards regulating the networks, and is not the technology’s first appearance along the waterfront, said executive director Betina Albornoz. “The reality is all these wireless waves are already reaching the sidewalk… the beach. The difference is our network is unsecured (accessible without password),” Albornoz said. “People distributing this kind of material, they do a disservice. We haven’t added anything that should be of concern.” The BlueZone launched last week in an

effort to boost tourism in White Rock through permission-based wireless content that promotes local events. The Marine Drive strip has 14 hotspots from which video can be transmitted to Bluetooth-enabled cellphones, or downloaded to other mobile devices through Wi-Fi. Before the BlueZone existed, there were already more than 250 wireless routers along the waterfront, Blue Jamb Media’s Michelle Herlihy noted. Health Canada information states a person would have to be in a room within 20 centimetres of 1,000 such routers for an extended period of time for there to be any health concern, she said. BC Ferries, as well, has begun offering free wireless Internet on all sailing between Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen, and at those terminals. “I understand (opponents’) concerns, but there is proven data that is to the contrary,” Herlihy said, recommending those concerned that the regulations aren’t enough focus their efforts on those who set the standards. Drew Sinatra, a South Surrey naturopath, said he learned of the network through a longtime White Rock resident who con-

But from what he has learned, Sinatra is concerned about potential impacts of exposure to the technology – to the point he doesn’t have Wi-Fi or cordless phones in his own home. He noted many schools in countries such as France and Germany no longer have Wi-Fi, in response to health concerns. Sinatra said he is treating a few patients for electro-sensitivity symptoms, and spoke with one woman recently who said her head

hurts whenever she talks on her cellphone. Still, the number of those who are sensitive is small, he noted. “Most of the population, they’re fine,” Sinatra said. “You and I and most people aren’t affected by it. But there are some out there that are, and unfortunately, they can’t go down to the beach in White Rock because there’s Wi-Fi there.” South Surrey’s Lynda Honing, with Citizens for Safe Technology, questioned why the BlueZone was established without any public consultation. Honing said she experiences heart palpitations if she’s around the technology, and said people need to do more to educate themselves on the issue. “This is not something we are meant to be around at all,” she said. Sinatra said that while there is no hard evidence pinning symptoms on wireless technology, he doubts such signals have zero impact. “You can never point the finger, you can never say exactly what it is,” he said. “This signal is being pulsed out 24/7, it must be having some effect on my body. It probably isn’t good for me.”

New life for maternity at PAH

Shoppers help police

Birth of a baby ward

Mall chase follows bank heist

Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

The finishing touches are being put on the first phase of Peace Arch Hospital’s renovated maternity ward, and mothers are expected to be delivering in the brand new 400-sq.-ft. singlefamily birthing rooms within days. While the opening marks that the first phase is on time – construction began six months ago – it also signals a step forward in patient comfort. The four new ocean-view birthing rooms slated to open include sinks, fridges, TVs, beds for fathers and private bathrooms fit with showers and soaker tubs. Because all of the medical equipment is hidden in cabinetry, maternity manager MerryAnn Keane said the rooms resemble those of a four-star hotel rather than a hospital. “This is giving birth in a state-of-the-art hospital while feeling at home,” Keane said during a tour of the ward Wednesday. The Thrifty Foods Education Room has also been completed, which is to be used for staff education, meetings and group prenatal classes. Phase 2 of the $5.3-million renovation will now begin in the half of the maternity ward that remained open during construction of phase 1. The second phase will include four more birthing rooms, and is scheduled for completion in December. Once the entire ward is finished, Keane said, mothers will be able to labour, deliver and recover in the same room. The concept is a stark contrast to the hospital’s previous model, in which the birthing experience took place in three rooms; one for assessment, one for labour and delivery, and another for postpartum care. The new ward will also be 50 per cent larger and have almost three times the capacity of the previous one. The renovation is just one of five projects in

Maternity manager Merry-Ann Keane shows some of the features as the ward nears completion. Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation’s $32-million Partners in Caring Campaign, which has already added 56 acutecare beds on two floors of unused hospital space, as well as obtained an MRI machine. The campaign is currently raising money for the Integrated Centre for Health Improvement, and aims to do the same for a new emergency department. Foundation executive director Jackie Smith said the maternity ward is on budget, and has so far brought in more than $4.2 million. “One hundred per cent of the project is funded by the community,” Smith said, noting many items, such as mattresses, were donated. The new ward is a far cry from the clinical and sterile feel of the previous birthing rooms, and will likely attract families from outside the Peninsula, she added. “It makes a huge difference for families. We think it’s exciting for the patients.” Other added details in the ward include a ledge on the bathtubs where patients’ companions can give massages; a wheelchair-accessible

bathroom; wood basinets to replace the metal ones; and a cupboard for laughing gas that a patient can access from the bed area as well as the bathroom. A small Murphy bed folds out from one of the wall cabinets, where a baby will be moved to if he or she requires medical attention following delivery. After being tended to, the baby would be returned to mom, and the bed folded back, out of sight. “You would never know anything medical just happened,” Keane said. “Everything is tucked away.” Although the renovation will see the end of shared showers and fathers sleeping on the floor, Keane stressed that the quality of medical care isn’t going to change. She did admit, however, that staff are looking forward to their new work space. “I have staff who are excited to come to work next week because they think they’ll be working over there.” Keane, who considers the project her “baby,” became emotional while talking about the ward’s transformation. “I get goosebumps every time I think about it,” she said, through tears. “The women in this community really deserve this.” To donate, or for more information, visit www.peacearchhospital.com or call 604-5354520.

It isn’t the smartest thing to try and rob a bank located just metres away from a police station. But one man tried it Monday, triggering a police response that all but eliminated any chance of escape. “He was basically surrounded. He wasn’t going to get away,” said Const. Kenn Meglic. South Surrey RCMP officers were called to the 1700-block of 152 Street just after 4 p.m. July 19, after a male in a black hoodie and green cap walked into Vancity and demanded money. According to police reports, the robber fled on foot towards Semiahmoo Shopping Centre, where an officer gave chase after a nervouslooking man matching the description of the suspect bolted. Police say the man led officers through the mall – ditching sundry clothing along the way – then outside in a loop through the upper parking lot by Tim Horton’s, before returning back into the mall. “He was peeling his clothing while he was trying to escape,” said Const. Kenn Meglic. A suspect was apprehended – and an undisclosed sum of cash recovered – with the help of two off-duty RCMP officers. Investigation determined the individual was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for an unrelated offense, Meglic noted. White Rock police assisted in Monday’s operation. Mall patrons pointed police to the garbage cans into which they saw a fleeing man stuff articles of clothing. Meglic described the incident as “textbook, in terms of police response… Everybody contributed, including the public.” Charges have been recommended against a 38-year-old Surrey man. - Tracy Holmes

No personal use: couple  from page 1 In a statement of defence filed last May, the Chadwicks called the investigation a “witch-hunt” by the school district and denied any theft, fraud and kickback allegations. The pair claimed senior administrators instructed them to keep certain finances separate from the financial affairs of the district, but argued no money was ever diverted to their personal use. The couple also said there were no kickback schemes arranged with third parties, and that contrary to school district allegations, they did not destroy or misdirect financial

records or spoil evidence. In their statement, the Chadwicks said they were “colleagues and good friends for years” and affirmed they had no intimate relationship in August 2006 when asked, but were subsequently married that November. They are due to appear in B.C. provincial court in September. Robert remains under investigation by the B.C. College of Teachers. Barbara wasn’t subject to a teachers’ college investigation because she was an administrative assistant and not required to be certified by the professional organization.

Event organizers worthy of thanks

E

very summer, myriad activities fill the days and nights of Peninsula residents and visitors, alike. For starters, there’s the ever-present draw – the waterfront, from Mud Bay to the Peace Arch – but there has always been plenty going on away from our shores, too, from the Canada Cup to the Sea Festival to the Tour de White Rock, which just wrapped up its three-day run last weekend. In fact, there’s always been so much going on that one wonders if, perhaps, these events – and the people responsible for organizing them – have started to be taken for granted. After all, many have come close to being axed in recent months. The Canada Cup, for example, took a hit this year when a scheduling conflict kept the top international women’s teams at home, and the future of the tournament was as shaky as a knuckleball. But, not wanting to leave local fans lacking, White Rock Renegades and a host of other volunteers stepped up to the plate and delivered the Canadian Open – a stop-gap tournament which focused on young teams and talents, while still including higher-profile teams many Canada Cup fans were accustomed to watching, including the Canadian national side. White Rock’s Spirit of the Sea Festival, too, had been on a much publicized death-watch, after criticisms from city staff and politicians about last year’s organization. Not enough money, not enough time; event directors stepping up, then stepping away; even talk of re-establishing some sort of accompanying sandcastle contest has been bandied about, with limited success. But, in the end, the annual festival is set to go this August long weekend – a credit to resilient organizers and supporters who never let it slip away with the tide. And while last weekend’s Tour de White Rock has never – publicly, at least – showed signs it was on the rocks, it has stood strong while other BC Superweek cycling events, even the famed Tour de Gastown, have fallen by the wayside. Of course, there are also seniors events, children’s activities, arts and entertainment, all a short trip from our doorsteps, most organized by individuals and groups from within our community. Their continued success – to be enjoyed by the masses – is made possible only through the dedication of a few. On behalf of this community, we offer admiration and appreciation.

If government figures are correct and British Columbians are spending $100 million a year on offshore gambling sites, Krueger said the problems associated with that betting has been the responsibility of Victoria. It has had to pay for treatment and social costs without realizing any revenue. “There’s no going back,” he said of government’s foray into gambling, regardless of party affiliation. “It’s like alcohol. Prohibition ended up benefitting organized crime and government changed its mind. Some time ago, because of the Internet, it became a case of turning back the tide. And you can’t…I wish people would try to look at the big picture.” There will be those who still label Krueger a hypocrite, and Coleman and Campbell and Ida Chong and John Les alongside him. There is a basic expectation from voters that its government representatives do what they say they will do and stand firm on principled belief. There is nothing stopping Krueger, or any other Liberal MLA, from resigning in protest of a policy that is at odds with his principles. However, like any tax – and gambling has been labelled a tax on stupidity – once revenue is tapped, it is harder to cap than an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

No reduced health budget Editor: Re: PAH surgical staff take Falcon to task, July 21. It was unfortunate to see some of the comments by Peace Arch Hospital’s medical staff regarding elective surgeries over the month of August in the newspaper. Contrary to comments made in the article, there are not reductions in health spending. Each and every year the Fraser Health budget has increased substantially. That doesn’t mean there are unlimited dollars, however. They have to manage spending within those record budget levels. For too long, governments measured the success of our healthcare system by the dollars spent. By the end of our three-year budget plan, health-care spending will have increased by 91 per cent since our government was first elected in 2001. In that same vein, surgeons at Peace Arch Hospital are using the base surgical budget of Fraser Health as the measure of appropriate surgical outcomes for residents of White Rock and South Surrey. I believe we should be focusing less on inputs and more on outcomes. Earlier this year, we announced we will move towards a patient-focused funding model approach for health care. This innovative model rewards hospitals and health authorities on outcomes – by providing financial incentives for delivering acute-care services for a competitive, set price. Instead of patients being seen as an expense, hospitals will see patients as an opportunity to generate revenue to perform even more services for taxpayers. While this may be a novel idea in Canada, it is a concept embraced around the world. And we will work with surgeons to ensure patients benefit from the additional surgical procedures that will be undertaken through patientfocused funding starting this fall. With respect to outcomes for elective procedures, B.C. leads Canada in meeting benchmarks in key surgical areas, such as hip and knee replacements, cataract and cardiac surgery and cancer treatment. Since 2001, wait times for hip and knee replacements alone have dropped by about 50 per cent. Kevin Falcon, Minister of Health

Wi-Fi distress on waterfront Editor: Re: Tourism White Rock unveils free Wi-Fi, July 16. I live on the hill above West Beach, and I am highly distressed. Tourism White Rock has, in one fell swoop, adversely affected the citizens of this gem of a city in a way that stifles thoughtful input and participation, while threatening our health and well-being. It seems council has allowed, carte blanche, the deployment of Bluetooth technology all along our waterfront. An around-the-clock

BlueZone with 14 hot spots now exists outside my home. Those who find pleasure and convenience in wireless access may find the new direction exciting. However, I am part of a growing percentage of the population that is aware of the adverse effects of the microwave radiation that these antennae emit. To be part of the mobile-technology wave crave is far from appealing to me. That “no one’s ever done it anywhere in the world” is not reassuring either. It is most certainly not a source of pride to the many who cannot go for a walk on the beach or the pier, dine, shop, socialize or even live safely, anywhere near the radiated zone this creates. The effects actually extend up the hill for at least a kilometre. To be blanketed, without informed consent, with free access points and hot spots shows a profound lack of acknowledgment to the health of those who live and work here. A growing number of people are sensitive to the radiation that is emitted by this technology. I am only one of them. Children and senior citizens and people with pre-existing health issues are particularly vulnerable and at-risk. The vital considerations connected to a decision like this go far beyond convenience and monetary gain. They require assurances that we can live safely in a healthy environment. Thousands of scientific studies now confirm wireless technology

is not safe. If this project is being launched on a trial basis, we need to rethink it. Concerns and issues surrounding health and welfare will only increase as people become aware of the Pandora’s box that has been opened with this initiative. Linda Ewart, White Rock

Sockeye ruling far from rigged Editor: Re: Groups rail against fishy salmon decision, July 16. We want to clarify and correct some of the information contained in reporter Jeff Nagel’s story about the decision of an independent adjudicator over an objection filed with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) in the Fraser River sockeye salmon fishery assessment. Nagel’s article began by saying the independent adjudicator “swiftly overturned objections.” In reality, it was a deliberative and inclusive process over four months. The article includes a quote from one of the objectors that says the MSC process is rigged; this is patently false. The MSC standard, methodologies and procedures were developed by hundreds of fishery scientists, conservation organizations, industry and others working collaboratively.

Furthermore, MSC has a board of trustees, technical advisory board and stakeholder council to ensure the program remains the world’s leading and most credible environmental standard for the certification of wild-capture fisheries. Many environmental organizations are actively involved. The article includes a quote claiming consumers could buy “endangered salmon,” but this, too, is incorrect. No sockeye salmon stock is officially listed as endangered under the Species at Risk Act in Canada, and the certification report addresses the recovery of sockeye salmon subpopulations of concern. MSC certification does not mark the conclusion of a process; rather, it marks the beginning of a defined plan to ensure sustainable fish stocks that can be tracked for over the fiveyear life of a certification program. The Fraser River sockeye salmon certification report includes 17 specific improvements to maintain certification, and annual surveillance audits will evaluate progress. Leading B.C. fishery scientists agree that, if met, these conditions will progress B.C. wild salmon policy significantly. There are 29 fisheries across Canada actively engaged in the MSC program and more than 200 fisheries worldwide. Fisheries who participate in the MSC certification program have brought about substantial and positive changes. Mike DeCesare, MSC

Initial apprehension about prospective surgery at Peace Arch Hospital proved groundless, writes Eric B. Tweedie.

Health care all good but the wait Editor: I am recovering at home following a radical prostatectomy performed at Peace Arch Hospital. In the lead up to my surgery, there were a number of letters published in the Peace Arch News about the level of services and care at the hospital which were less than complimentary. Despite some initial apprehension as to what awaited me, my experience at Peace Arch in the three days I was hospitalized proved my concerns to be groundless, and so I feel compelled to share my positive experience with your readers. From admissions right through to discharge, I was treated professionally and with care and compassion. As a patient, one could not have asked for better treatment, and I wish to pay tribute to all the staff at the hospital for making my stay as comfortable as it could be. I am a South African permanently resident here in South Surrey. Prior to moving to Canada, my experience with the medical profession had been within the context of private health care, and whilst not all the experiences were positive, timeous access to medical services and treatments was never an issue.

Unfortunately, the same is not generally the case under the state-funded model. If I have one gripe about my recent experience, it was that 4½ months elapsed from the initial examination by my urologist through the biopsy process to completion of the surgery. Whilst in my case I do not believe the prognosis was prejudiced by the wait, it could have been and there definitely is room for improvement here. This issue was further reinforced by the front page article in the July 14 edition (Staff vacations delay surgeries: Falcon) indicating various local hospitals have significantly reduced OR capacity for elective surgery in July and August as result of cost-cutting measures. I have always held the view that the challenge we face here in Canada is not the quality of health care, but access to it within a reasonable time frame. The discussions around state-funded versus private health care in Canada will continue to rage. Whilst both models have their various pros and cons, and whilst neither is a panacea in its own right, surely there is some form of acceptable compromise? Eric B. Tweedie, Surrey

news South Surrey RCMP thank 22 volunteers at ceremony

Community police honoured South Surrey RCMP honoured 22 community policing volunteers Wednesday for service totalling nearly 20,000 hours. “My deepest gratitude and thanks to every one of you,” Staff Sgt. Scott Campbell told attendees of the awards ceremony, noting the combined time is the equivalent of 470 consecutive 40-hour work weeks. The policing office, at 1815 152 St., boasts dozens of active volunteers, many of them retirees with lengthy careers already under their belts. Last year, the group gave more than 7,000 hours to the community. So far this year, they’ve logged nearly 4,000. Programs they have organized or helped deliver include Mature Drivers workshops, bike patrol, speed watch and home security. Volunteers also assist members of the general public who come to the office with questions or concerns. Insp. Gary Begg, whose son is an RCMP officer stationed in South Surrey, described their commitment as “the highest form of public service.” “The most precious gift that any of us have is our time,” he told the volunteers. “Other people sit back and complain about law and order or the justice system; you actually put a face to it and say I’m

GoKidz owners Carolina & Ivan Rojas and family

Peninsula parents now have another option when it comes to childcare. It’s called the GoKidz Children’s Centre – a progressive and unique approach to before-and afterschool care – geared towards children in Grades one through six. South Surrey husband and wife Ivan and Carolina Rojas have been busy putting the finishing touches on the bright and child-friendly facility, located at 2255 King George Blvd. “We are really excited to get up and running,” says Ivan on opening the 1600- square foot centre this upcoming school year. While the modern centre is committed to providing a safe and comfortable supervised program, it isn’t your average, run-of-the-mill daycare facility. “We are proud to provide opportunities for recreation, relaxation and creative learning experiences,” adds the father of three. Ivan, a football coach for the South Surrey Titans and Carolina who volunteer at Sunnyside Elementary School came up with the concept for the unique approach to childcare after asking his own children, as well the kids around them about what their ideal child minding centre would be like. The result – a modern, state-of-the-art centre that features a climbing wall, foosball and ping pong tables, air hockey, the latest in Lego, arts and crafts, music, indoor and outdoor physical activities as well as video games that encourage exercise. But that’s just the beginning. “There is nothing like this throughout B.C.,it’s pretty unique,” says Ivan of the centre, which is partnering with Kate Wright from Champion Cheerleading and Master Davidson from Seung-ri WTTU Black Belt Academy. Other offerings include self defence lessons by a taekwondo instructor, educational field trips and Amber Alert GPS systems, which are personal tracking devices for parents to locate their children. Carolina and Ivan will have a table at the Waterfront Market during the Spirit of the Sea Festival, which runs July 30 to Aug. 1 They invite parents to stop by and visit. “Come on by and meet us and ask any questions you might have,” encourages Ivan. “We look forward to meeting you!” For more information, visit gokidz.ca

news City could follow Pitt Meadows’ lead if ban on licensed marijuana growers passes

Surrey keeps tabs on medical grow-ops Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Surrey is watching closely as the City of Pitt Meadows prepares to ban people from growing medical marijuana in that municipality. Health Canada allows the medicinal use of marijuana for several conditions, including severe pain or muscle spasms from multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury or disease, pain or nausea from cancer or HIV and seizures from epilepsy. Tuesday, Pitt Meadows held a public hearing on a bylaw amendment that would ban the growing of marijuana for medical purposes.

Smoke hearing Aug. 16 A B.C. Human Rights Tribunal hearing centred on secondhand smoke is hoped to result in better protection for residents of subsidized housing, says Rose Marie Borutski. The resident of Kiwanis Park Place in South Surrey led the effort that resulted in next month’s hearing, set to begin Aug. 16. Borutski believes it will have a provincewide impact for many seniors and people with disabilities. “The health hazard of drifting secondhand smoke explodes into critical mass when considering all (multi-unit dwellings) provincially and nationally,” she states in a press release issued this week. The complaints, first filed nearly two years ago, allege discrimination based on physical disability due to second-hand smoke in subsidized suites at the 12850 126 St. complex. According to Borutski, changes have been made since the conflict began – including the introduction of smokefree rental agreements – but they haven’t gone far enough. Borutski says she hopes the hearing will “finally garner enough public attention and dialogue to provide protection for nonsmoking seniors and persons with disabilities forced to live in subsidized housing.” – Tracy Holmes

A final vote is scheduled for September. If it passes, Pitt Meadows would become the first city in Canada to disallow the federally sanctioned activity. Surrey fire Chief Len Garis said the Pitt Meadows move is quite bold, and noted Surrey has existing bylaws that preclude growers from conducting business in urban areas. Because it is a horticultural use – and it is for profit – medical grows are not allowed in a residential setting, he said. Garis has long said medical grow-

Garis said of the six Lower Mainland municipalities participating in a new Electrical Fire and Safety Initiative, there have been 50 medical grow-ops found. Garis said it’s possible Surrey could introduce a similar bylaw to that of Pitt Meadows, depending on how it stands up to legal challenges. Surrey is also watching closely to see what the federal government does with its “reform exercise.” Studies have shown that dwellings with marijuana grow operations are 24 times more likely to catch fire.

RCMP boost overnight patrols Recent break-ins to Marine Drive businesses have prompted White Rock RCMP to ramp up overnight patrols along the popular strip. Sgt. Paul Fletcher said officers will “make more of a presence” in the early morning hours, after logging six commercial break-ins since January.

All of the crimes occurred after 2:30 a.m. The latest – to Grand Bazaar Istanbul, at 102-15505 Marine Dr. – took place July 15, when the store’s front glass door was smashed. A male was seen running from the store and getting into what is believed to have been an older, gold-coloured BMW, Fletcher.

The crime was reported at 5:20 a.m. Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 778593-3600. In addition to increasing patrols, Fletcher said police are also asking vendors to not leave valuables in their front windows. - Tracy Holmes

‘Masked bandit’ A ‘masked bandit’ sent a South Surrey woman and her children fleeing to the safety of their bathroom last week. Police attended the 15000-block of 19 Avenue around 11:30 p.m. July 12, after a woman reported someone was trying to break down a rear door of her home. Out of concern, she gathered her children up, locked everybody in the bathroom and called police. Officers responding quickly determined the culprit was neither at the door nor was he out to nick the family’s jewels. It was an oversized raccoon. Attempts to scare the critter away were unsuccessful.

Sandhill crane with chick

Ruddy duck

Sandhill crane

Flocking together…  from page 1 Just a few metres away are two adults with stilt-like legs, long, arcing necks and pointed beaks. Their large, grey-feathered wings are folded around their bodies as they walk around the perimeter of the yard, watching their surroundings closely with eyes framed by a splash of red. They are wary, and Hancock warns they could strike if threatened. It’s easy to understand why, once the couple’s baby – the size of a month-old kitten – emerges from some shrubbery, and scurries to catch up with mom and dad. “Hello! How are you doing?” Hancock says as he walks towards the family. “What a fine little baby you’ve got there.” The cranes edge away and head off – a different reaction than he receives from a pair of caged crane parents. As Hancock approaches, they make a loud trumpeting call in unison, before one runs at the fence, wings at full span. It’s the distinction between captivereared and wild cranes, Hancock said. Those in the wild avoid humans; those that have lived near people aren’t afraid to get close and attack. He’s observed the behaviour through his studies of the animal, which he is undertaking in hopes of helping them breed and, ultimately, replenish their dwindling population. “I think this is

such a neat indigenous bird,” he says. “It would be nice to have them back again.” • • • Hancock has had a passion for birds since catching his first hawk at 11 years old and becoming a falconer. He’s spent most of his life studying West Coast and Arctic wildlife, and worked as a pilot and wildlife film producer. While Hancock has published writings on whales, seals, seabirds, grouse and northern native cultures, his specialty is in northern raptors, particularly eagles. His most recent work has been with live bald eagle streaming video cameras, a wild study that has turned up more than 300 nesting pairs in Greater Vancouver. On top of lecturing, Hancock also runs his own publishing company, specializing in western history, native culture and nature and wildlife books. The business supports his other pursuit,

the Hancock Wildlife Foundation, which strives to promote the conservation of wildlife and its habitats. Hancock runs both organizations out of his 0 Avenue property, where his house, office and around 20 aviaries can be found. Hancock once had 135 outdoor pens, but many collapsed under snowfall a few winters ago. Luckily, most of the birds were indoors.  see page 12

Hancock has point to prove  from page 12 There are approximately 100 birds on his property, including a number of tropical turacos, such as the whitecheeked and lady ross varieties. • • • Hancock selects the birds he keeps based on various projects. Currently, he is focusing on cranes. While there is little chance of Hancock getting close to a baby crane guarded by its two defensive parents, there are many captive-reared youngsters who are eager to socialize. They follow him around while he visits the aviaries, inquisitively peck at the buttons on his shirt and attempt to untie his shoelaces. Hancock says his daughter, Mia, as a young teen, had a crane for three years after it hatched at her bedside. It considered her his de facto mother. Mia would take Gus in the car for visits to Crescent Beach. “As long as you have lots of napkins, it’s OK,” Hancock says, smiling. Mia would help Gus learn to fly by running ahead of him on 192 Street. Upon reaching a dip in the road, Gus would take off into the air and always return home after. Although baby cranes are affable, they don’t stay that way, Hancock notes. Within years, they become hostile and attack humans. The behaviour is similar to the birds’ instinct upon hatching. Although cranes lay two eggs, they only raise one baby, as one kills the other. Hancock intervenes before this happens for those in his care. He takes one of the eggs to be raised by him and his staff. As the siblings age,

they are no longer violent towards each other, and can intermingle. Captive-rearing the cranes is part of his goal to help them in the wild. Hancock says wild cranes insist on large, secluded areas to breed, which is problematic when much of their habitat is encroached upon by people. He wants to help the birds adapt to smaller areas, where they can raise young – something he says many wild cranes haven’t done for years. “Our local populations are on the verge of being nothing. Cranes demand absolute isolation and privacy. If we raise them in captivity, we might be able to get them to nest in their natural areas that are reduced in size… By captive-rearing the birds, they get a little more accustomed to people and built-up surroundings.” Hancock would like to see crane habitats enclosed with coyote-proof fencing. He believes captive-reared cranes would be more likely to stay within the confines than wild ones. “I need to show people cranes can fend for themselves,” he says, hoping to replicate similar projects that proved successful with eagles and peregrine falcons. “Initially, you have to show it’s possible.” With nearby wild crane areas – Burns Bog and the Serpentine fen – unfenced, the next step is finding someone to invest in the undertaking. “That’s a fairly big expense.” But it hasn’t stopped Hancock from trying. He’s determined to see sandhill cranes return to their natural habitat to successfully raise young and thrive. For more info – or to volunteer – visit www.hancockwildlife.org

KITCHEN RENOVATIONS

Smile bouquet Two Surrey florists took part in Make Someone Smile Week by delivering floral arrangements to residents of seniors homes. The local effort was part of an international initiative created 10 years ago by service organization Teleflora. Over the past decade, Make Someone Smile Week has involved more than 22,000 florists and seen more than 200,000 arrangements sent to create smiles. Surrey’s Teleflora team – comprising staff and volunteers from South Surrey’s EH Florist and Newton’s LaBelle Fleur Floral Boutique – made “be happy mugs” filled with flowers and delivered them to seniors homes the following day.

Public welcome A South Surrey nonprofit agency providing services to recovering adult male alcoholics and addicts is opening its doors to the public Aug. 1 for its 10th annual barbecue. The noon ‘til 9 p.m. event at the Launching Pad, 984 160 St., is free, and will feature guest speakers as well as entertainment by the Neil Harnett Blues Band. Everyone is welcome at the barbecue; the site is wheelchair accessible.

Garage sale raises nearly $7,000 for South Surrey family

A garage sale in support of a South Surrey family burned out of their home raised nearly $7,000 last weekend to support renovations that will ease 12-year-old Katrina Barberie’s life. It was an “amazing success,” Janet Lowe, an organizer of the sale, said by email this week. “We were completely overwhelmed by how much we surpassed our goal.” Lowe and other parents whose children attended Chantrell Creek Elementary with Katrina were spurred to help after learning a July 7 fire had caused extensive damage to the Katrina Barberie 13502 14A Ave. home the girl shared with her mother, Nancy, and grandparents, Jean and Ken Murphy. Much of Katrina’s medical equipment – she has leukodystrophy, a rare, degenerative brain disease – suffered water damage in the blaze. While the home was insured, renovations to accommodate Katrina’s recent growth spurt are not covered, as they were not part of the original structure. Lowe had hoped Saturday’s garage sale, held in the school

The Caribbean By Bert Stevens - Marlin Travel The Caribbean is known around the world for its incredible beauty, gorgeous weather, friendly people, beautiful beaches, and lively activities. Whether you prefer a quiet island off the beaten path or one of the region’s more famous destinations - with lots of attractions and lively nightlife.

choose to spend time inland as well. The islands each offer their own unique wildlife and beautiful plants for travelers who spend a bit of time inland. Natural beauty is the selling point for many of the Caribbean islands, especially those popular with eco-tourists.

islands, and their influences can be found in everything from island names to important ruins.

TRAVEL & CRUISES

The best way of experiencing a cross section of what the Caribbean has to offer is by cruise ship. Approximately two million travelers choose the Caribbean as their cruise destination

From gorgeous beaches to historic sites and glittering casinos, there are plenty of places travelers enjoy stopping at during their vacation.

Another perk of a cruise is the ability to experience more than one Caribbean island each time the ship makes port.

One of the Caribbean’s most beloved features is the idyllic weather that can be found here year round. Every location offers warm temperatures and soothing sunshine. One aspect of the Caribbean that cannot be overlooked is the gorgeous beachfront scenery it offers.

If you’re planning to cruise, plan ahead: Depending on the season, cabins may get completely booked months before the cruise is scheduled to set sail.

From the pristine white sands of Aruba to the colorful pink and black sands found throughout the region, you may never feel as though you’ve seen it all. Nature in the Caribbean can mean everything from volcanic peaks to deep valleys, natural springs, rainforests, and even deserts. And, of course, it’s hard to ignore the crystalline waters that edge these sandy stretches of heaven. However, this is just the beginning of what the Caribbean has to offer, so many travelers

Whether you seek an extravagant vacation aboard a floating luxury hotel, a romantic getaway with your loved one, or an activity-filled family voyage, your dream cruise awaits.

Of the many cruise ships sailing the Caribbean, each offers a variety of price, size, and itinerary options.

Over the years European squabbles over these beautiful islands resulted in an incredible mix of architecture and history. With sights ranging from British naval yards to Spanish cathedrals, and forts on many of the islands, those interested in colonial history will certainly find something fascinating. Even before the Europeans found the islands, however, native tribes made their homes on the

She believes there are financial benefits to conversions that create other fuels that can be sold. White Rock Coun. Mary-Wade Anderson said there’s been an overreaction to incineration. “In five years, we will be laughing at the concerns that we had,” Anderson said. Surrey’s Linda Hepner supported the incineration idea, but didn’t rule out putting the facility outside the region. “I discount the argument that we need to look after our own garbage,” Hepner said. “We’re looking at a commodity.” Now that the concept of a local incinerator has been supported by the committee, the Metro Vancouver board will vote on it Friday, July 30. From there, it goes to the provincial Ministry of the Environment. The minister has the option of approving it, amending it and approving it, or sending it back to the board with recommended changes.

Recovery from a stroke depends upon several factors, one of which is the size and extent of the damage. Another crucial factor is the size of the penumbra region, which are brain cells that lie between the damaged tissue and the unaffected, normal brain. This extremely important area of the brain contains idling brain cells that are nonfunctional but intact. HBOT re-awakens the stunned brain cells within the penumbra by providing them with much needed high doses of oxygen. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy provides the stroke patient with a number of additional benefits such as:

Experience the many benefits of therapeutic massage. • Decrease muscle tension and spasm • Aid in easing chronic pain • Enhance circulatory function • Provide serene, quiet place for relaxation • Enhance awareness of the mind & body connection

Water fountain app coming If you’re thirsty, you may want to check your iPhone. Metro Vancouver is preparing to launch an app that finds locations of drinking water fountains throughout the region. A web database is to provide the same information to other mobile phones like Blackberrys and Androids. Metro officials also intend to include locations of restaurants and hotels willing to make tap water available to the public. Managers say the water fountain iPhone app is one of Metro’s strategies to try to reduce bottled water use 20 per cent by this year. Metro Vancouver also opted to spend $200,000 recently on two water wagons to distribute drinking water at public events.

Why is it that the words excitement and spontaneity always seem to follow “if”, “when” or “as soon as”? Wouldn’t it be great if we could put aside all the reasons why we don’t and just do? Of course, certain realities prevent us from living up to our full spontaneous potential – work, traffic, chores, etc… It seems like there’s always a to-do list stuck between you and your free time. Remember that trip you wanted to take? That canvas you wanted to turn into a painting, or that forgotten recipe still hanging by a fridge magnet? Is it that the days got shorter? Or did we just forget to take a timeout?

Thank you for supporting your local White Rock South Surrey Community Foundation!

Let’s go back to impromptu play dates and spur of the moment adventures – ones that work on two wheels or two feet. Skip the red lights and traffic jams and get moving on what you really want to do. Say yes to the bike-ride, that cooking class, the morning workout or the homemade meal. Because if we spend our lives driving to the moment instead of living in it, we’ll forever be asking, “Are we there yet?” At Morgan Crossing, spontaneity is a built-in feature. It’s where your favourite restaurant, gym, shoe store, bakery, dry cleaner, hair salon and grocery store are only as far as the front door. It’s a nice change from typical suburbia where a mid-day lawn mow might be the closest thing you’ll find to spontaneity. There’s a community built around you, where you can walk to your wants and needs instead of tracking them with a GPS device. Watch life unfold in the courtyard, in the coffee shop or at the edge of your balcony. Here, time isn’t just spent, it’s enjoyed.

YOUR LIFE WITHIN REACH AT MORGAN CROSSING NOW MOVE-IN READY

Familiar names and new talent set to perform July 30-Aug.1

Arts Reporter

t’s called the Spirit of the Sea Festival – but it might just as well be called the Spirit of Entertainment. That’s because – for all of the other beach and family-oriented events featured at the event – it’s the wide and varied entertainment line up that is the most accessible and characteristic aspect of an annual celebration in a city known for its fondness for the arts. That’s not lost on Janice Savage who – in addition to producing this year’s lineup of entertainment suitable for a relaxed summer weekend (July 30-Aug.1)– recently took on the presidency of organizing group the Community of Lights Events Society following the resignation of Matt Todd. Just as the ‘spirit’ ❝Medderick seems to be has not been returning to heard locally the festival for a while, so in its 61st that’s going to be year – after a low ebb exciting.❞ in the Janice Savage aftermath festival president of criticisms of last year’s event – so, too, have many of the community’s favourite entertainers, plus notable performers from around the Lower Mainland and beyond, rallied to add their talents in spite of organizers’ late start in securing sponsorship funding. Looking for familiar names? Try upbeat Louisiana-style band Mojo Zydeco, or singer and ace songwriter Ron Irving (with Bryan Nelson and Michael Vincent); blues and country guitar wizard Jason Buie; impassioned vocalist and writer Neil Harnett; Celtic-and-more entertainer Pat Chessell and his trio; and, one of the mainstays of the Peninsula music scene, singer-guitarist Glen Pearson. Other well-known contributors in slightly different or pared-down contexts include Tedd Tosoff from Blue Voodoo; Steve Sainas from Mud Dog plus – working as a duo – earthy roots and neo-folk mavens the Sumner Brothers. Singer Medderick will be featured with long time friend and musical associate Steve Gidora

(The Wheat In The Barley). “Medderick has not been heard locally for a while, so that’s going to be exciting,” said Savage. And guitarist Jim Black is also back – but not, this time, in retrofunk Star Captains mode, Savage notes. “He’s working in his Jimmy James and the Blue Flames

persona,” she said. The soulful and jazzy vocal tones of Heidi McCurdy will also return, with an addition, Savage said. “She’s going to be presenting some of her Free Your Natural Voice Studio students, too, which will help expose some new talents.” The Spirit of the Sea has always provided a venue for young and emerging performers, and this year is no exception. Among featured rising artists will be popular blues-rock and pop brother act Sam and Luke, riding high after recently recording their first full-length album in Nashville. Langley folk and new-country sister duo Robyn and Ryleigh Gillespie add to the sibling appeal, while other young and emerging talents will include Ocean Park Idol winner Tom Vander Kam,

The Spirit of the Sea Festival will showcase a variety of entertainment, including Mojo Zydeco (above) and duo Robyn and Ryleigh Gillespie (left). popular youth band Their There, alternative girl singers the Oh Wells, plus award-winning young vocalists Chanel Stasiuk and Payton Rector and participants in the B.C. Junior Talent Search. Classical music is not neglected, Savage added. “The West Coast Symphony is back – they’ll be the opening performers of the festival on Saturday (July 31) at 1 p.m.” A variety of other idioms are also covered, Savage said. “We’ve got a big country band – Todd Richard and the Reluctant Cowboys – and Jonny and The Kingbees will be doing a fusion  see page 26

The Spirit of the Sea Festival is on track for its return to White Rock July 30-Aug. 1. That’s the word from Janice Savage, president of organizing group the Community of Lights Events Society, who said the community has been rallying around the event, which has weathered a slow start and the departure of past-president Matt Todd, who resigned in June to concentrate on his college course-load. “Fortunately the team from last year is almost intact, which has meant that the parade and children’s activities and organization of volunteers has been able to go forward as usual,” she said. “This festival will look the same and feel the same.” Another plus, she said, has been the appointment of new manager Tara Sketchley for the waterfront market feature of the festival. “We actually have more vendors than last year,” Savage said. “There has been so much interest in the festival this year,” she added, noting that recent newspaper articles have given a higher profile to a tradition that people have tended to take for granted. People are very supportive everywhere I go, asking how they can help. I haven’t found that in past years – it was just something that was always going to happen. The support has been overwhelming.” There’s a full main stage entertainment roster, including such local favourites as Mojo Zydeco, Ron Irving, Pat Chessell, Jim Black, the Little Brother Band and Heidi McCurdy, she said. But there’s still a need for sponsors to come forward for such festival favourites as the fireworks display, torchlight parade and second entertainment stage, Savage said, acknowledging that sponsorship “wasn’t addressed early enough.” Sponsorship comes with full banner recognition and publicity opportunities, she said, although  see page 28

Sand sculptor to hit beach Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Professional sand sculptor Craig Mutch has always had a soft spot for White Rock. It was here, after all, that friends lured the graphic artist and photographer to make his first attempt at creating three dimensional images from the gritty granules some 21 years ago. Long graduated from basic beach sand to high-quality blends, and from individual experiments to heading competitive teams, Mutch has won such kudos from peers as best architectural sculptor in the Harrison Hot Springs Sandcastle Contest in 2001 and the master solo award at the 2008 Parksville sandcastle contest. It’s a career that has taken him around the world including contests and special commissions in Europe and North Africa – most recently the Marine and Heritage Festival in Quattar, Saudi Arabia – but again this year it comes full circle as he returns to White Rock to create a unique work for the Spirit of the Sea Festival. Starting on July 27, Mutch’s three-person Sandcanada.ca team will use 20 tons of specially blended sand, trucked to the parking lot adjacent to White Rock Museum and Archives, to create a unique eight-foot-high sand sculpture. It will be different from the tall castle and marine theme last year, Mutch said. “It’s going to be a Buddha Zen garden theme,” he added. “I think it’s a positive image that appeals to almost all cultures, and I’m going to include a few other things as well, including the ‘Om’ and some Chinese symbols.” It will also include two six-foot-square blocks suitable for showcasing the names of sponsors – “sandvertising” as Mutch, terms it – including Gold Key Volkswagen, ReMax and Shell Robinson and some others yet to be announced. Sponsorship is key to paying the costs of such sculptures, Mutch – who also creates ice and snow sculptures and pumpkin carvings

create some special White Rock sculptures for the Winter

Olympics’ O-Zone in Richmond. “It’s thanks to the City of White Rock, Mayor Catherine Ferguson and (Community of Lights Events Society president) Janice Savage that I’m back in White Rock.” Mutch is also promoting public photos of the sculpture, by donation, to help pick up some of the costs. Opportunities to sand carve are dwindling locally, he noted – citing the fact that the Harrison contest is now defunct. “We want to keep sand sculpture alive in White Rock,” he said.

Festival meetings a success We’ve got some  from page 25 these dwindle the later a sponsor is confirmed. Savage also acknowledged criticism of last year’s festival – and ensuing bad feelings between society members and the City of White Rock – in which 11th-hour confirmation of events, such as the fireworks, was cited as a reason for planning and policing problems. “This year, we’re working very closely with the RCMP and they’re actually helping us plan,” she said. “What we’re doing is what the city recommended – to plan for everything. If the funding for something doesn’t come through, it’s easier to subtract

something than to add it.” Among other events featured at the Spirit of the Sea will be the children’s Pirate Parade and Carnival; Try Events’ White Rock Stiletto Run and 5K Beach Race; Semiahmoo First Nation’s popular salmon barbecue, Cupcake’s Teddy Bear Picnic; professional sand sculpture by Craig Mutch and his sandcanada.ca team; Run to the Rez Car Show and Shine, beach games and activities and the Marine Drive Waiters’ Race. Savage said another city requirement, that the society have its schedule in place in time to present to city council at its July 12 meeting, has worked to organizers’ advantage.

“We knew we had a deadline and it helped that we did,” she said. Savage said the focus of open weekly organizing meetings, Wednesday nights from 5-7 p.m. at Tommy Salsa’s, has been reinforcing everything that worked well last year. “Previously meetings were held in a closed building, but now everything’s very transparent,” she added, noting the society welcomes feedback from the public at the meetings. “If something wasn’t working particularly well, let us know it,” she said.

Invest in the best: beautiful B.C. Metro Vancouver houses hot spots for real estate investment MAGGIE CALLOWAY A family home is always a good investment. A home provides a focus for the family, it provides security of place for the children and, equally important, it grounds the family in the community.

For years, many homeowners have treated the family home as a cash cow. Buoyant real estate markets over the past decade, coupled with low mortgage interest rates, made real estate gurus of many Metro Vancouverites. What some of these ‘gurus’ lost sight of was what the family home should represent: a family dwelling, a refuge, a shelter from the ups and downs of daily life. However, those who are in the market for a family home that they will live in, will

likely find it helpful to educate themselves about what is available in the Metro Vancouver area.

It’s a great time to house-hunt for a new home in B.C. According to the B.C. Real Estate Association, residential sales in the province declined by 23 per cent to 7,722 units in June compared to the same month last year. On a seasonally adjusted basis, residential sales posted to the industry’s listing service declined by five per cent from May to June this year, but the average Multiple Listing Service price climbed by eight per cent to $499,908 in June compared to June 2009, says the BCREA. But slower sales can be good news for homebuyers. “Market conditions Cameron Muir have shifted from balanced conditions at the start of the year to a buyers’ market this summer,” says BCREA chief economist Cameron Muir. In June, there was 9.3 months of supply on the market given current Gregory Klump sales activity, up from 5.6 months in January 2010. “Tighter credit conditions for homes with secondary suites and low-equity homebuyers have moderated consumer demand,” Muir notes. Year-to-date, B.C. residential sales dollar volume increased 31 per cent to $21.4 billion, compared to the same time last year. Residential unit sales rose 17 per cent to 42,343 year-to-date, while the average MLS residential price climbed 13 per cent to $504,281 over the same period.

REIN president Don Campbell says it is important for potential homebuyers to conduct research on every municipality in th e Metro Vancouver area, if they are considering purchasing a home in the region. “House prices in Vancouver are high and will stay there in the foreseeable future but we shouldn’t paint the whole area with the Vancouver numbers,” Campbell says. “If a buyer wants to live in Vancouver, it is a financial decision ... you have to be ready to make a financial sacrifice and if that’s the lifestyle you are looking for it doesn’t get any better than that in Canada. If you are raising a family with an average income and you want a little bit of dirt, you do have to step outside Vancouver and look at the outlying regions.” A recent REIN report that looks at the top Real Estate Investment Network president Don Campbell says homebuyers should research Metro Vancouver municipalities before purinvestment towns in B.C. outlines the best chasing, and make decisions based on the kind of lifestyle they’d like to live – and on budget.

been historically lower than other regions. But, with the new transportation links, Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows will be among the most accessible regions in Metro Vancouver; local experts say this will drive demand for both residential and commercial/ industrial property as values rise. As well, the expansion of Highway 1 and the new Port Mann Bridge will make this area an extremely desirable place to live, says Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only are we considered one of the

top places to invest and live in B.C., we are fifth in the whole country,â&#x20AC;? Daykin notes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a town our size that is fantastic. Transportation in and out of Maple Ridge has been challenging over the years, but with the two new bridges, this has been solved.â&#x20AC;? Daykin says that despite past transportation problems, Maple Ridge has continued to grow because it offers great value, natural beauty while retaining a sense of rural charm, â&#x20AC;&#x153;that small-town feel.â&#x20AC;? He points out the access to outdoor recreation is superb, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but we also offer a vibrant

arts and culture community.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The quality of life Maple Ridge offers is extremely good,â&#x20AC;? Daykin says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For people who commute to work, we have the West Coast Express, which gets people into Vancouver in an hour in great comfort.â&#x20AC;? Maple Ridge is expanding faster than ever, Daykin adds. A plan to increase density in the downtown core stemmed from the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Smart Growth from the Ground Plan, Daykin says. In 2003, there were about 8,500 people living in the regional town centre (from the Fraser River to 124 Street, and from 221 Street to Burnett Street), and that is expected to increase to 20,000-22,000 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; almost triple â&#x20AC;&#x201C; over the next 10 years, says Daykin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are making sure we are ready for growth when it comes by upgrading the services to this area,â&#x20AC;? he says. With between 35,000 to 40,000 people moving to B.C. every year, communities such as Maple Ridge that have plans in place and are preparing infrastructure to handle a larger population will likely be the winners.

in June, reports the Canadian Real Estate Association, along with number of newly listed homes. Led by lower activity in Toronto and Calgary, seasonally adjusted national home sales (via the MLS) receded 8.2 per cent in June, says the CREA. Although near-record levels were recorded in the first quarter, the CREA cites tightened lending regulations and anticipated interest rate hikes as reasons for the more moderate sales activity. While the number of newly listed homes on the Canadian MLS declined by 6.8 per cent in June compared to the previous month, a declining trend in new listings â&#x20AC;&#x153;will help maintain the balance between supply and demand, and temper home price volatility,â&#x20AC;? says the CREA. The national average price of homes rose 4.9 per cent across the country, on a yearover-year basis, to $342,662. While the market is becoming more challenging for sellers, buyers now have more choice and less competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;National home sales activity is easing due to fewer and more cautious first-time homebuyers,â&#x20AC;? says CREA chief economist Gregory Klump. While the pricing environment is becoming more challenging, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A recovering economy and job market will provide support for housing activity and prices,â&#x20AC;? Klump says.

White Rock Renegades claim three provincial titles Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The White Rock Renegades completed an impressive triple play on diamonds across the province last weekend, winning three provincial titles. The White Rock Renegades ‘91 – defending national champions – took top spot in the B.C. midget girls fastpitch championships in Richmond; the ‘94 Renegades took home the bantam title in Cloverdale; and Susan Derosiers’ 1996-born squad captured gold in the peewee tournament, which was played in Victoria. All three teams advance to nationals, as do the Renegades ‘92, who snagged the final

berth at midget nationals, by virtue of their third-place finish in Richmond. Adding to the medal haul were one of the association’s youngest squads, the Renegades ‘98, who one week ago finished with silver medals at squirt-division provincials. The club’s senior women’s team, meanwhile, has already punched its ticket for nationals, to be held two weeks from now in Kitchener, Ont. “It was a damn good weekend for the Renegades, that’s for sure,” said Renegades president Gregg Timm. “This year is particularly good. We’re pretty spoiled this year.” The Renegades ‘91, coached by Chuck Westgard, rolled to their B.C. title with a 9-1

tournament record, culminating with a 12-3 win over Surrey Storm ‘93 in the championship game. Earlier in the tournament, Surrey had handed White Rock its one loss. “We felt pretty deflated (after the loss) but we came back fighting,” said Westgard. With the team having to advance to the finals through the loser’s bracket, because of the loss, Nicole Sidor pitched the team’s final three games. She was backed up by an offense that came alive at the right time, Westgard said. “We were just hitting the ball,” he explained. “All throughout the lineup we scored runs and did our job. The girls… were never worried and just got it done.”

Leading the offensive charge was Jackie Rothernberger, who crushed seven home runs in the tourney, and Tayla Westgard, who hit over .500. The ‘94 ‘Gades also rolled through much of the tournament unscathed. Aside from a close 2-0 win over Ridge Meadows ‘94 in round-robin play, White Rock won every game in lopsided fashion. In the finals, White Rock beat Victoria ‘94 13-1. “We mercied every team after that one,” said coach Mark Palmer. “It was good because, even in the final game, we were able to get everybody into the game, and on the field.” - with files from Richmond Review

Rams ready for season opener Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

After a big preseason victory last week over the Chilliwack Huskers, the Big Kahuna Rams are set this weekend to open the B.C. Football Conference regular season on the road against the defending champion Vancouver Island Raiders. The two rival clubs, who met last year in the B.C. final, will square off Saturday, 4 p.m. in Nanaimo. The Rams will sport quite a different look this year, especially after the departure of starting quarterback Cam Clark, who left to join the University of Manitoba Bisons. Additionally, the handful of Toronto natives – including former starting running back Errol Brooks and lineman Lincoln Bryan – who suited up for the Rams last year are not back, nor is kicker Curtis Glawson, who will be replaced by rookie Nick Boyd. But in their stead, the Rams, who

Rams coach Chris Butschler (centre) will be directing plenty of new players when the season kicks off Saturday. finished with a 7-3 record last season, will look to a handful of newcomers this year. Many of the fresh faces played prominent roles in last weekend’s 36-0 preseason win. At quarterback, second-year pivot Jon

Ellingson – nephew of former CFLer, and former Ram, James Ellingson – started the game, and ran an effective offence, although several deep throws were off the mark. In the second quarter, another newcomer, Nathaniel White – a former Earl Marriott Mariner who most recently played high school football in Virginia – took over the quarterbacking duties. The South Surrey squad got touchdowns from running back Carlos Garziano, wide receiver Brian McLean – on a 30-yard toss from White – and reigning BCFC special teams player of the year Nick Downey, who returned the game’s first punt 45 yards for a score. Shane Poberznick also returned a Huskers’ kick for a TD. White threw two more touchdown passes in the fourth quarter – one to former White Rock-South Surrey Titan Zach Middleton and another to Surrey Bears alum Ryan Taylor.

Lawnbowlers make B.C. podium

Headed to nationals

Linda Brunn

Evie MacCallum

Evie MacCallum and Linda Brunn captured the gold medal in the ladies pairs division of B.C. Championships last week, bringing to five the number of local bowlers set for nationals. The White Rock Lawn Bowling Club duo will join fellow club members Mary Wright, Beryl Harrington and Dave Baldwin at Canadian Lawn Bowling Championships, which are scheduled for Edmonton, Aug. 14-22. Wright and Harrington are half of the women’s fours team that won silver at provincials earlier this month, while Baldwin won gold as part of a men’s fours team. Wright will also compete in a second national tournament, in the senior triples division alongside Christie Grahame, in Halifax, Aug. 26 to Sept. 1.

Jr. Tritons out The White Rock Junior Tritons were bounced from B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League playoffs in the qualifying round last Wednesday, after a 9-3 loss to the Okanagan Jr. Athletics at Kelowna’s Lombardy Park. The Junior Tritons had chances to score early in the contest, according to head coach Russ Smithson, but couldn’t capitalize. “We had chances early to break it open, but we didn’t play fundamental ball,” Smithson said. “As the coach, it was frustrating. Things we worked on all season were not executed and it cost us.” The two squads were playing for a chance to advance to the BCJBL Championships, which features the league’s top eight teams and were played last weekend in North Delta. The Langley Jr. Blaze took home the title, after a convincing 16-2 win over the Coquitlam Redlegs in the title game Sunday night. The Blaze were also the regular-season champs, finishing first in the league with a 29-11 won-lost record.

Clarification A photo of Tour de White Rock volunteer Donna Tarver – which appeared in Wednesday’s Peace Arch News – identifies the longtime tour volunteer as chasing a cyclist on Magdalen Avenue. Tarver was, in fact, running with the rider to offer instructions and encouragement, as the Magdalen hill is one of the toughest challenges on the Tour de White Rock road race course.

OBITUARIES

Wilson, Alexander Lennox October 5, 1926 - July 15, 2010 On July 15, 2010, Alexander Lennox Wilson of Edmonton passed away from pancreatic cancer at the age of 83 years. Eck was born in Beatty Sask. His parents, Sandy and Gladys, ran the Red and White Store in Beatty and Eck and his brother George and parents lived above the store. He had an idyllic childhood playing in the fields and sloughs of rural Saskatchewan with good friends and many adventures. He didn’t graduate from high school due to his burning need to join the army but WWII ended before his basic training was completed. He returned to Saskatchewan to drive trucks in the summer and play junior hockey in the winter. He courted and married Elisabeth Jellicoe in 1951 and they subsequently had 3 children. He then worked for B.A. Oil Company, which first became Gulf Oil and then Petrocan, starting out as a truck driver and then ending up as a sales manager. Eck and Bette had many moves over the years, finally retiring in Surrey, B.C. Eck had kidney disease and spent time on renal dialysis before 2 kidney transplants, the second of which was successful, lasting 33 years until his death. He nursed his beloved wife Bette until her death at home from rheumatoid arthritis in 2000. Eck loved nature, reading the paper, following the stock market, the Oilers and Saskatchewan Roughriders. He cared about social justice and was a fun and loyal parent, grandparent and friend. Eck was also predeceased by his brothers in law Ron, Pat, Harold and John Jellicoe and Margaret Grainger. He will be lovingly remembered by his children Pam (Walter) Otiniano, Lisa (Ross Alexander) and Tom Wilson (Bev Fletcher), grandchildren, Eloise, Alex and Graeme, his brother George Wilson and his sister in law Marion as well as many dear nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews and friends. A Memorial Service will be held at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 10037-84 Avenue, Edmonton, on Thursday, July 22, 2010 at 2:00pm. In memory of Eck, donations may be made to the Kidney Foundation, 11227 Jasper Avenue, Suite 202, Edmonton, AB T5K 0L5. Eck would have appreciated your signing an organ donation card. The family wish to thank all of the staff of 5A2 University Hospital and especially Dr. M. Andruchow as well as the residents and staff at the Churchill Retirement Community where Eck spent 4 happy years. To send condolences please visit, www.fostermcgarvey.com Foster & McGarvey Ltd. 10011-114 Street. Edmonton, Alberta (780) 428-6666.

Lloyd passed away peacefully on July 15, 2010, in his 73rd year. A wonderful husband, loving father and grandfather, he leaves behind his wife Pat of 54 years, his children Dan, Laurie (Rob), predeceased by his son Terry (1963). Lloyd also leaves his granddaughter Jamie, many family members, relatives, and friends. The family would like to thank the staff at Evergreen Baptist Home for their care of Lloyd over the past year. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society of B.C. or The Children’s Hospital. A celebration of Lloyd’s life will be held Monday July 26, 2010 at 2:00 pm at Valley View Funeral Home, 14660-72nd Ave Surrey, B.C.
