Business group votes to adopt new name

W.R. chamber to give Surrey top billing Alex Browne Staff Reporter

The local chamber of commerce has adopted a name change – one its president acknowledges is a sign of the times. At a special general meeting this week, members of the White Rock and South Surrey Chamber of Commerce voted to re-order the communities in its name Jay Fettinger – to the South Surrey and White Rock chamber president Chamber of Commerce.

Instead, at the request of Brock’s graduating friends, Shannon presented the first scholarship created in his memory. “These last couple of weeks have been very, very hard,” Shannon said Monday. “We really miss him. We feel so thankful and grateful that they still remember him... that he touched their lives.” Brock died three years ago, when he tried to stop his dad’s 1969 Camaro from rolling out of the family’s sloping driveway and across the road.

experience. The carriage houses and suites in singlefamily homes are often being rented out by the homeowner – often a young person with no experience as a landlord. There is keen competition for tenants – Housing Minister Rich Coleman noted in a recent speech that East Clayton’s many suites have actually brought rental rates down in the area. However, under such circumstances, it is possible to get a bad tenant. When that tenant is living in close proximity to many other people, trouble can erupt. In the past week, there have been two shootings in East Clayton. In the first one, a young woman was murdered on the street late at night, in what police call a domestic dispute. In the second, a man was shot when he answered the door of his home on Tuesday afternoon. This took place a short distance from a new elementary school. Surrey planners and crimeprevention specialists need to look closely at the social conditions within East Clayton, and think long and hard about whether carriage houses and unbridled rentals within standalone houses are the right way to build a new neighbourhood.

news Animal waste eyed by civic leaders

Doo question dogs White Rock council Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

With 100 metric tons of dog waste produced in White Rock each year – and its disposal prohibited from garbage bins and landfills – city staff are being tasked with figuring out what to do with it. City environmental co-ordinator Marlene Fuhrmann – who based White Rock’s dog waste figure off the more than 800 dog licenses it sells annually – said this week the question of how to deal with dog excrement was raised at a recent

environment committee meeting. Dog feces is a “prohibited material” in Metro Vancouver disposal facilities, and garbage loads containing it are assessed a $50 minimum surcharge, plus the cost of removal, cleanup or remediation. While Metro Vancouver suggests solutions – such as flushing dog waste down the toilet, burying it in the garden, using it for a worm farm, hiring a company that offers yard collection or buying a composter – Furhmann said the options are limited to the household.

Furhmann questioned whether owners who take their dogs out would pick up waste, bring it in their cars and dispose of it at home. She also noted that some of the options, such as flushing, could have negative environmental impacts. “To have all this additional flushing and use of water to get rid of animal waste might put a strain on that resource,” she said. At its Monday meeting, council directed staff to prepare a report on potential environmental solutions for dog-waste disposal.

“I think it’s going to shock people because no one really knows what we’re supposed to do with it,” committee member Coun. Helen Fathers told Peace Arch News. Fathers noted members of the Semiahmoo First Nation have been present at the last couple of environment committee meetings. “They’re bringing up issues of all the dog feces on their land,” she said, referring specifically to Semiahmoo Park. “Everyone thinks the First Nation land is a dog park.” Fathers said the city could look at

setting up dog-waste disposal stations, while Fuhrmann said inspiration could be gleaned from other communities, such as in Spain, where pet sandboxes are located on block corners for dog use. Coun. Alan Campbell questioned whether the city is in a position to implement, finance and enforce dog-waste disposal. “I’m very concerned we bite off more than we can chew.” Fuhrmann noted the city is working with other municipalities to identify a solution.

Trial adjourned for judge to rule on breathalyzer evidence

‘Bad faith’ shown by officers: defence counsel Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The lawyer representing Carol Berner against impaired-driving charges says evidence presented by the officer who arrested her was “tainted by the obvious pressure and coaching of senior officers at Delta police.” That, along with procedural errors made by Const. Sarah Swallow the day four-yearold Alexa Middelaer was struck and killed at the side of a Ladner road, will bring the administration of justice into disrepute if it is admitted into the proceedings, David Tarnow told court Wednesday. Prosecutor Kim Wendel disagreed, arguing that excluding evidence Berner was impaired that day would be a disservice to society. Societal interest “favours its admission,” Wendel told Judge Peder Gulbransen. Gulbransen adjourned court until Monday to consider the evidence’s admissibility in Surrey Provincial Court. A decision to disallow it would reduce the likelihood of an impaired-driving conviction. Berner is facing multiple charges of impaired driving causing death and bodily harm and dangerous driving causing death and bodily harm in connection with the May 17, 2008 crash that killed Alexa, daughter of Southridge School principal Laurel Middelaer.

The crash also seriously injured Alexa’s aunt, Daphne Johanson. Berner has admitted to driving the car that caused Alexa’s death and Johanson’s injuries. In arguing to exclude evidence that Berner was impaired, Tarnow told Gulbransen points of Swal- Alexa Middelaer victim low’s testimony – including that the officer had placed Berner in the back of her police car because she thought the air conditioning would make Berner more comfortable – appear nowhere in the officer’s notes from that day. As well, notes from meetings with senior officers in June and September 2008 regarding the “high-profile” case further suggest the constable’s testimony was influenced, he said. “This demonstrates that others have had a hand in the preparation of her evidence,” Tarnow said. “The good faith of the case is trumped by the bad faith of Const. Swallow and her superiors.” Tarnow wants the results of Berner’s failed roadside blood-alcohol test excluded, along with statements she reportedly made to Swallow in the 31 minutes that Berner spent

in the police car. Berner was not told of her right to remain silent or her right to seek legal counsel before she answered Swallow’s question regarding alcohol consumption, Tarnow said, noting Swallow relied solely on that statement to justify the test. David Tarnow “The statement was made defence attorney subsequent to numerous serious breaches of Ms. Berner’s Charter rights,” Tarnow said. Given that Swallow testified she didn’t smell alcohol on Berner or notice her have any difficulty walking or providing requested documents, Tarnow said, “there was no reasonable suspicion for Const. Swallow to provide the approved screening-device demand.” Tarnow argued his client was “unlawfully detained” when Swallow placed Berner in the police car. The detention was “crystalized” when Swallow escorted Berner to the car with a hand on her back, he said. Berner was never told she could leave and never told she did not have to comply, Tarnow said. “The evidence supports Ms. Berner’s contention that a reasonable person in her position... would conclude that her right to

choose how to act had been removed.” Wendel disputed Tarnow’s submissions, arguing Swallow was a credible witness whose evidence was collected in good faith and to the best of the officer’s ability. Berner was not legally detained until she told Swallow she’d had two glasses of wine at home earlier that day, Wendel said. Wendel noted Swallow testified she believed it was “safe and prudent” to place Berner in her police car and that it was Swallow’s impression at the time that Berner was agreeable. There is no evidence Berner knew she couldn’t get out of the car, she added. Swallow’s testimony regarding comments Berner made to the doctor who examined her at the hospital – in Swallow’s presence, after she’d been read her rights – should also be admissible, Wendel noted. While Berner had the right to remain silent with Swallow, she had to answer the doctor’s questions, Gulbransen commented. The judge suggested to Wendel that Swallow, by being in the examination room with Berner, even though she didn’t engage in the conversation, obtained information she otherwise wouldn’t have. “Is (Swallow) getting information through the back door, information that she couldn’t get through the front door?” he asked.

Brock celebrated through tradition  from page A1 gear and rolled across the street, dragging Brock with it. “He jumped out to try to stop the car,” Shannon said. “He slid... and he fell and it crushed him.” While Brock’s dad, Kelly, and older brother, Riley, pushed the car off, Shannon pulled her son out from under the Camaro, then set the car’s emergency brake. As Riley held his hand, Shannon and her neighbour rubbed the teen’s feet, telling the 15-year-old to hang in, help is coming. But nothing could be done. Brock had died almost instantly. “Riley took me up to the house and said, ‘You better pray, pray like you’ve never prayed before.’ And then Kelly came up to me and said, ‘He’s gone.’” Shannon described her son as an impulsive teen who needed to be kept busy. At the same time, he had a good sense of humour,

a mischievous side and a special connection with his younger sister, Darby, who is autistic. He was also a strong contributor to the family, always helping without having to be asked, she said. In the three years since he died, the pain hasn’t gone away, but it has eased, Shannon said. The family determined to get through by forcing themselves to find the joy in life, and traditions old and new have been an integral part of the journey. They still travel to the Shuswap every year. It’s where Brock loved to cliff-dive off Copper Island and fish with his dad, Shannon said. His parents, brother and sister also still go out for dinner on his birthday, and they return to his favorite snowboarding destination, Sun Peaks. They also visit East Beach, one of Brock’s favourite local hangouts, where a boulder engraved with ‘Brock’s Rock’

and other tributes were placed in memory of the teen. Support from family, friends and community also helped them move forward, and Shannon hopes all who played a role know how much it is appreciated. The scholarship awarded last week in Brock’s name – $500 from the school’s dry-grad committee matched with $500 from the family – is another tradition. It is to be presented annually to a student who is headed for a more hands-on career, said Shannon. Like Brock, students who receive the award may also have had a rough start in high school, she added, noting Brock proved he could go the distance if he really wanted to, finishing Grade 9 through home-schooling. “A lot of teenagers go down that (troubled) road before they find their way,” Shannon said. “He was a nice kid.”

Chamber now a ‘voice in Victoria’  from page A1 major rebranding and marketing program. Fettinger said he would be happy to talk to “all members and all non-members” about the changes. He noted that now having the local group in the B.C. chamber

– “for the first time in 72 years in existence” – gives the organization an additional political edge in promoting business, economic growth and tourism. “We’ve been made aware that we’ve been at a disadvantage in the past by not having a voice in

Victoria,” he said. The local chamber’s presence in the larger organization is already being felt through upcoming resolutions it has originated, Fettinger said – including one arguing for elimination of the Capital Gains Tax.

Crude thirst the root of problem

T

he images of oil-covered pelicans flopping around on deserted Louisiana beaches are heartbreaking. The numbers surrounding the oil rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico are frightening; 5,000 barrels of thick, poisonous crude gushing unfettered into fishing beds and holiday beaches for the past 50 days, hundreds of thousands of metres of absorbent booms deployed to try to contain the slick, millions of litres of toxic dispersant chemicals poured into the water to try to break up the viscous goo. And anyone – including those who call the Semiahmoo Peninsula home – who believes they won’t be affected or shouldn’t shoulder some of the blame for this environmental catastrophe is fooling themselves. Government officials and oil executives talk bravely about the amount of money they’re willing to spend to “make it right.” But the toll of the disaster defies the debit column on a ledger sheet. How do you put a price on the death of a pelican? How do you quantify the tourists who won’t vacation on Gulf beaches? How do you accurately account for the lost livelihoods from fisheries that will likely be closed for years to come? It’s easy to blame the oil company, British Petroleum, whose rig blew up, severing the pipe from which the oil is gushing. It’s easy to cast a stink eye to regulators who often succumb to industry pressure and assurances they can police themselves. It’s easy to denounce governments so hungry for huge tax revenues generated by oil exploration and drilling they often ignore the warnings of environmentalists. But we must all shoulder some of the blame. For the ongoing disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. For the Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska in 1989. Even for the mysterious “leak” that sullied a stretch of the Burrard Inlet shore below the Chevron refinery in Burnaby. North Americans are responsible for onequarter of the world’s daily oil consumption. And despite years of warnings that this finite resource is running out, our consumption continues to increase by two per cent a year. Until we come to grips with those numbers, and work seriously to reverse them, we’ll continue to compel oil companies to put our environment at risk to sate our thirst for crude.

Trains keep us Patients need in the black quality control Editor: Welcome to the coal-dust hillside of White Rock. We are getting three coal trains a week heading from the U.S. to Roberts Bank. The coal is sprayed at the source with a retardant material to avoid loss of coal. However, when the empty cars – 120-125 per train – head back to the U.S. from Roberts Bank, the coal dust swirls up and out of the cars. The breezes or wind carries the dust up the hillside. Decks, awnings, rails, chairs and vehicles are now getting a coating of coal dust which, in some cases, is difficult to dislodge. Looks like the coal trains are here to stay – so happy cleaning, folks. Jim Boyes, White Rock

My tax notice arrived from the City of Surrey together with the Tax Matters brochure in which the mayor proclaims our “strong financial shape with no debt and a healthy reserve of funds.” Then, in another section, it declares a general property tax increase of approximately $50 for a single-family residence on an average assessed value of $531,813. That’s great, I thought. My home was assessed lower, so the most I’ll see is a $50 increase, possibly less. Then I looked at my tax-notice numbers and – surprise – my total taxes are up $368, or 16 per cent from last year, after a modest 5½ per cent increase in assessed value. I phoned the Surrey tax people and was straightened out in my foolish interpretation of what was written. General property tax increase does not mean taxes in general, but refers only to the line item “general” – the basic fund of Surrey’s budget. Having then heard the department was inundated with calls over the same misunderstanding, I went on to question other line items: rates for “general” is up eight per cent, “roads and traffic safety” up 61 per cent, “garbage and recycling” up 14 per cent, while all other non-municipal tax rates are up only 3-4 per cent. The staff person I spoke to had no explanation other than “that’s how it is.” How is it that a fast-growing city, with a massively growing population and commerce, cannot decrease the tax rate or at least hold the line? Are we paying for growth, instead of better services? Payback for turning King George Highway into King George Boulevard? Don’t let this tax grab sneak in unnoticed and unprotested. George Zador, Surrey

An open letter to health minister Kevin Falcon. On Thursday, April 22 at 1:30 p.m., I had to go to the Peace Arch Hospital emergency department with internal bleeding. I registered at the front desk. With the papers, the clerk sent me down the hall to where the minor patient care unit is. I put my papers into the designated slot. I sat in a drafty hallway and waited and waited. Finally, a fine young doctor came to me around 5 p.m. and apologized for the delay. He ordered an X-ray; it was done at 6. The doctor came back at 6:30 and advised me to come back the following day for a CT scan. My wife and I left the minor patient care at 7. Total waiting time: 5½ hours. Friday, April 23, 10:30 a.m., my wife and I reported to Peace Arch X-ray department to register for my CT scan. They started the preparation on time as they said, 10:45 a.m., and I had the scan done at 12:15 p.m. From the CT scan area, I had to go back to the emergency admitting department to re-register, as the day before, and with the papers back to the minor treatment unit. I put my papers into the same slot as the day before and sat and waited, hoping someone would come and tell me the test result so my wife and I could finally go home. The same doctor came back at 6, and told me he called the

surgeon and he’d be seeing me in 30 minutes. However, at 6:30 the surgeon called the OR and said he could not see me. My wife and I left the emergency department, minor treatment unit at 7. Total waiting time: 8½ hours. This is what you call quality patient care? If you do, then perhaps you should go back to school, because you do not know what the word “quality” means. I wish I could have the power to bring you in there to sit in that drafty hallway 8½ hours without food or water, when you are over 80 years old like we are. If this is quality care, then God help the residents of B.C. M. O’Grady, White Rock

…and not to ignore Hiebert Editor: Re: MP defends expense ranking as family matter, May 26, et al. Time to look at the reasons MP Russ Hiebert was chosen to represent us in Ottawa. Russ represents honesty in the full sense of the word; his personal work ethics are high and his commitment to work hard for his constituents is unfailing. There is no mistaking his dedicated work for us. His work day in Ottawa starts early, and is often not finished until late in the evening. In this day, where family commitment is being fragmented, I deeply admire Russ’ determination to keep his family at his side when his schedule requires

him to be in Ottawa. From my observation, dedication to his family is another example of the qualities of strength and commitment Russ brings as our MP. What an example to the whole country! Taking a long, hard look at the big picture, we have a man that exemplifies integrity in his commitment to his family, his job, our community and our nation. D. Lowry, Surrey Q An open letter to Russ Hiebert. I was a supporting constituent until I read your comments about travel expenses and the need to take Andrea and the kids at taxpayer expense. I have worked almost 40 years in many organizations as a senior manager and as a consultant to many government organizations. I have never heard a single case of staff taking their spouse and/or kids on a business trip unless they pay the additional cost. I thought you represented the views of the people that worked for you, supported you and voted for you. You betrayed us. You’re a chameleon who professes to follow conservative and fiscally responsible policies. Instead, you are arrogant, free spending and feeding at the public trough that I and others work to fill. Leave the party and let a real conservative fill the MP position. Once you get another job, you will learn you can’t take the wife and kids on trips without paying the cost. I have to go now, get back to work and pay taxes to pay for your family’s travel. Rick Taylor, Surrey

Motorists have no claim to road ownership over cyclists, say two letter writers responding to a PAN editorial.

We know who really owns the road Editor: Re: Bike safety is two-way street, June 4 editorial. I am a longtime advocate of commuter cycling, although I am unable to do so in my current job. There seems to be a big misunderstanding about cycling and road taxes. Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe that taxes to build and maintain roads come from property taxes paid to the municipality. Is road building not done by local municipalities? If yes, then all road users pay taxes for roads – provided they are not living on the street. Whether you own a home or rent your residence, you are contributing to property taxes and thus to road building and maintenance. I don’t believe road building is paid for out of a gas tax or any other hidden taxes on cars – i.e. ICBC is, in large, a tax paid to the feds. Therefore cyclists pay taxes on roads just as much as

car drivers and have equal right to be there. So often on the radio and on the Internet I hear rants along the lines of “cyclists don’t pay taxes so shouldn’t be on the road.” Thank you, keep up the good work. Kim St. Pierre, Surrey Q Motorists say the road belongs to them. In or around the turn of the last century, a French blacksmith repaired his daughter’s broken scooter and installed pedals. This created the first bicycle. Cycling became a raging public activity. Clubs were formed and members demanded better roads. When automobiles came along, there were many improved roads to drive on. Do not the roads truly belong to bicycles? Terence William Miller, Surrey

Teacher identified as crash victim A man found dead in his car on Colebrook Road this week has been identified as an extremely popular Surrey teacher. Gary Kang, a 40-year-old shop teacher at Princess Margaret Secondary, was found after a singlevehicle crash into a ditch just east of 152 Street on Tuesday morning. Surrey RCMP do not suspect foul play.

A huge outpouring of grief from students and friends took place the next day on a 1,000-member Facebook site set up in his memory. “Mr. Kang was an awesome teacher and a down to earth human being, and he was too young to go and leave all those unfortunate students at PM who will never be able to embrace his presence and learn from such

an amazing individual. R.I.P Mr. Kang we love you dearly,” wrote Dimme Piecce. His impact apparently went well beyond the classroom. “I was blessed to have Mr. Kang as a teacher, and then a friend out of school.

news Money to help establish long-term vision for commercial areas

City to match retail funds Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

In an effort to establish a longterm vision for White Rock’s commercial areas, the city plans to pitch in up to $20,000 for a business needs and priorities assessment. Council approved the funding – which will come out of the economic reserve and be matched by the White Rock Business Improvement Association – at its Monday meeting, subject to the approval of a grant from the BC Real Estate Foundation. According to a report, staff based the funding formula off a 50 per cent contribution from the real estate foundation, with the total cost of the project being $80,000.

Are you smarter than a Nobel Prize winner? Let’s face it, most of us think we’re pretty darn smart. But not too many of us have won a Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine, and that is why I want to introduce you to Dr. Otto Warburg. Dr. Warburg won the 1931 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for his work during the 1920’s on the then relatively unknown and mysterious disease called cancer. He successfully identified the root cause of cancer, and discovered that cancer cells, unlike normal cells, thrive in an anaerobic, acidic state rather than an oxygen rich, high pH environment. In fact, he discovered that cancer cannot grow in a high alkaline, oxygen rich environment. So why isn’t anything being done to tell every Canadian to alkalize their body before it’s too late? The good news is that there is something being done to spread this news, and even more importantly, I have recently discovered an incredible way to achieve an alkaline balanced body that is simple, fast, and easy! Change Your Water - Change Your Life! Can it really be as easy to create an alkaline balanced body as drinking a different kind of water every day? Yes! But only if it is the right kind of water, made fresh in your own kitchen every day from your very own powerful water processing machine. Micro-Clustered for Maximum Absorption and Hydration After passing through one of these amazing machines,your water will be micro-clustered, which means it is the most effective water in the world when it comes to hydrating each and every one of the approximately 70 trillion cells in your body. The vast majority of Canadians are chronically dehydrated which leads to a myriad of health challenges and concerns. High Alkaline for a pH Balanced Body This water has a pH of 8.5 to 9.5, depending on which button you push on your machine. This high pH makes drinking this water an excellent way to raise your body’s pH level back up to where it should be. Chances are astronomical that your body is currently MEDICAL DEVICE

quite acidic, and there is no better way that I know of to create a healthy pH in your body than to drink this special water. Powerful Anti-Oxidation Leads to Great Health This water is also one of the strongest anti-oxidants you can eat or drink, especially when it is fresh out of the machine. Many people spend a small fortune on anti-oxidant supplements, then take those supplements with an oxidizing beverage like bottled water, a soft drink, or even tap water. It sounds crazy, but a large glass of most beverages can easily offset any benefits you thought you were getting from your anti-oxidant supplements, which means that money is basically wasted. It is critical to give your body all the anti-oxidants you can, and drinking this water is the quickest way to deliver tremendous amounts of anti-oxidants to your body. Oxidation is the main cause of aging, and drinking this water has been proven to slow the aging process. Many Japanese people who have been drinking this water for decades look as young as the day they took their first sip!

Nobel Prize laureate discovers that cancer lives and thrives in an acidicc environment, then a doctor finds that all disease comes from the same root cause! When I see that I realize it is a pretty good clue as to how to live a healthy, disease-free life. Alkalize your body! If you’ve made it this far into “BIG” GARY D ERRETT this information then you’re Google “Gary D errett” probably wanting to find out to read my stor even more. Like how to get y some of this water and try it for yourself. And how to get one of these amazing machines for your own home. And how you can help me spread the news about this water, and about the importance of having a pH balanced body. If you’d like to try the water with NO OBLIGATION other than to quit drinking soft drinks or sport drinks, then give me a call or During the past few months I have personally given gallons send me an email. Or better yet, come to one of our free presenof this incredible water to many people who were suffering from tations where I will actually show you everything you need to one thing or another, and the results have been astounding. We know about this water and how to get involved with it. are not allowed to make any claims about what this water can do to help fight any specific disease or health condition, but if you are currently living a life less than you’d like to be due to any type of ailment or disease, I’d sure like to talk with you and get you some of this water for free. There’s only one reason that I would be willing to give you gallons of this water for free, and that is because I know it works. Approximately 70 per cent of people are currently taking at least one prescription drug, and I think that is a crime. Literally. To Register RSVP to: Alkalize or Die!

perspectives …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Kayli Filsinger helps African children receive an education

A chance to learn Hannah Sutherland

E

Staff Reporter

veryone at the African school where Kayli Filsinger taught until last weekend receives a second chance at an education. Some of the Semiahmoo Secondary grad’s students had been away from the classroom for extensive periods of time, such as one boy who was forced to leave after being in a horrific car accident, and another who stopped attending to care for his ill mother. Some were simply considered troublemakers in their youth, expelled from the public school system. Although the stories of the 16 students at Naledi Education Centre in Botswana were as varied as their ages – ranging from 16 to 31 – they were all learning from Filsinger for the same reason. They wanted to pass Grade 7 and receive their certificates in order to either move on to high school or work, as most jobs in Botswana consider the document a minimum requirement. Filsinger, who has been studying human kinetics at the University of Guelph in Ontario, arrived in the African country at the end of April for a six-week volunteer placement. The 21-yearold stayed in a house in

Gaborone with a group of other university students, where – due to a shortage of power in the city – they experienced an outage at least once a week. Although Filsinger has taught human anatomy to high school and college groups, the Bostwana trip was her first time in a formal classroom setting. The biggest challenge was communication, as the students spoke Setswana, and English was difficult for some to understand. Luckily, one of Filsinger’s pupils spoke English well, and translated while the other students grew accustomed to her accent. After the first five weeks, she noted a significant improvement in their abilities. “Students (whom) I did not think could speak any English at the start are now comfortable to have a conversation,” she said last month via email while still in Botswana. “I think a big challenge with the language is that they understand but are not confident in their speaking ability. “By encouraging them to talk in English in the classroom, they are becoming much more confident.” Language isn’t the only difference between the African school and Filsinger’s alma

In the mornings, after gathering to sing and pray, students at Naledi Education Centre sweep the classrooms, polish the floors and clean the grounds. “The philosophy is that learning occurs best in a clean environment.” Imparting knowledge was just one of the impacts Filsinger had on the community – she also left a physical mark in the form of a house she helped build for a family. The group she travelled with raised $7,500 for the construction, and spent six days doing physical labour, such as digging trenches. “It was hard work, but the eight of us, with the help of the three professional builders and the family, were able to accomplish a lot in a very short amount of time.” Filsinger said the receiving family was onsite for the entire process, and lent a hand whenever they could. “The children are beautiful,” she said. “They love to play in the piles of dirt we

create and they are so excited to be able to move into the house.” Having completed her degree this spring, Filsinger said she is now hoping to embark on another education-focused internship abroad. “I don’t know how to put everything I’ve learned here into words,” she said. “It has been an incredible experience that I will never forget and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to come to this country and meet some beautiful people. Botswana is a place that I hope I will be coming back to in the very near future.”

lifestyles Earl Marriott students collecting books for youth in Guyana

Teens team up for literacy A trio of Earl Marriott Secondary students is leading an effort to boost literacy levels in Guyana. For Katherine Singh, Matthew Cumblidge and Shyrie Maharaj, their book drive – Give For Guyana – started as a final project for their social justice class. It turned into a passion to give children in a less fortunate community something they have always taken for granted – the chance to learn to read. “We may have started the drive because it was part of our school requirement, but the reason that we’re seeing it through is not. The issue of illiteracy touched all three of our hearts,” Maharaj said in a press release. According to the teens’ research, Guyana has much to offer in terms of natural beauty, including one of the largest unspoiled rainforests in South America. But when it comes to literacy, it falls far behind. Eleven per cent of youth in Guyana are illiterate, and many teachers are

‘Fisheries treasure’ recovering in Kamloops hospital

Oswald injured in crash Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A South Surrey man known for his passion for the salmon fishery is recovering from serious injuries, following a crash last month on Horse Lake Road near 100 Mile House. Bob Oswald is still in significant pain as a result of the May 27 crash, in which he broke numerous bones. But the senior is expected to recover, his son, Scott, said Tuesday. “He’s in a lot of pain and he’s struggling, but he’s seemingly out of danger. “He’s a tough little nut.” Oswald, 79, is well-known on the Semiahoo Peninsula for his dedication to the salmon fishery. He is one of the longest-serving volunteers at the Little Campbell Hatchery and was a founding member of the Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club. Late 2008, in recognition of Oswald’s passion for the resource and educating others about it, the Freshwater Fisheries Society declared him a “fisheries treasure.” In an interview with the Peace Arch News shortly after, he shrugged off the title, describing himself as “just an ordinary guy... that’s interested in the resource.” Scott said it’s unclear how long his dad’s road to recovery will be. He noted this isn’t the first time

Bob Oswald is recovering in hospital after a crash last month. the “ordinary guy” has faced – and overcome – such a sizable obstacle. In 2007, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneropathy – a rare autoimmune disorder – rendered Oswald helpless for months, six of which he spent in hospital. During his illness, Oswald stayed as involved in the hatchery as the condition would allow, and all indications are things will be no different this time around, Scott said. “I’ve seen it in him… he’s got that look in his eye,” he said. Based on reports immediately following the crash, the hatchery’s Ron Meadley agreed. “When I heard about it, the information came back to me

that he was awake, conscious and worried that the message got through to have somebody at the club to pick up some fish food,” Meadley said. And while Oswald’s absence since the crash has been a noticeable one, things at the hatchery continue to run smoothly, in large part due to the role Oswald has played for so many years. “From a management point of view, everything carries on because it’s well-organized,” he said. “But we know Bob’s there.” Oswald is recovering at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops. Anyone wishing to send getwell cards or notes may send them to the Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club, at 1284 184 St.

White Rock’s Candace Jones and Marques Willey.

Racing for a cure A White Rock team competing against more than 400 others in last weekend’s The Rush: Race and Urban Scavenger Hunt placed third, finishing the course in just over three hours. Candace Jones and Marques Willey took part June 5 in the six-hour event – BC Lung Association’s newest fundraiser – completing the 10 required checkpoint challenges located around Vancouver. The duo could only travel by foot or public transit, and was armed with transit schedules and iPhones to navigate

and decipher clues. “We may not have won the trip around the world, but I think third place is pretty darn respectable,” Jones said in a release. “And besides, just doing it was an absolute blast.” The pair raised $500 thanks to the support of friends and co-workers. To date, the first-time event has raised more than $85,000 to help fight lung disease. For more information, call 604-731-LUNG (5864) or toll free 1-800-665-5864 or visit www.rushvancouver. com

That remaining garbage would exceed the combined capacity of the Vancouver Landfill in Burns Bog and the existing Burnaby incinerator, making an extra outlet necessary. To Kosmak, Metro’s math seems to favour a new incinerator. “It appears to me the target is to stop at 70 per cent and then build incinerators,” she said, adding supplemental targets should be drawn up to go to 80 per cent by 2020 and then 90 per cent by 2030. She says plenty of tools are available to cut waste further. Pay-as-you-throw pickup, in use in Vancouver and Seattle, makes residents pay for collection based on the size of the can they choose. Much tougher enforcement is needed to block the dumping of banned waste, Kosmak added. That is part of the plan, although Metro officials don’t envision anything as intrusive as the can-opening, bag-probing garbage inspectors deployed in jurisdictions like San Francisco. Options could include info-tagging bags or cans with banned waste, or assessing fines. New disposal bans are also likely to block dumping of wood and, eventually, organic waste.

Recycling rates in multi-family buildings need improvement  from page A15 it’s a blended average – the high recycling rate of the demolition/ construction sector (76 per cent) actually pulls up poorer performance of residents. Single-family homes currently recycle 44 per cent of their garbage. But in multi-family buildings, where space is tight and garbage sins are anonymized by a common dumpster, the rate plummets to 16 per cent. That must improve if Metro is to reach its target. The region already has one big waste-reduction advantage. B.C.’s product stewardship programs are the envy of most of the recycling world. The much-lauded takeback programs, most funded by deposits or eco-fees, make industry collect beverage containers, used tires, unwanted paint, pesticides, used oil and, most recently, electronic waste like computers and TVs. Even so, perfection is elusive. Encorp captures 77 per cent of beverage containers for recycling, but 230 million a year elude the blue boxes. Plastic bottles are ground into pellets at a plant on Annacis Island, but 20 per cent ends up as residue

waste,” she said. The provincial government is poised to expand the e-waste takeback to include cellphones, cameras, small appliances, lighting, toys and sports gear. By mid-2012, virtually anything with an electric cord or battery is to be covered. Consumers will likely pay more eco-fees on a broader range of new products.

that becomes garbage. Those residuals mean that even if everything was collected, a 100 per cent recycling rate doesn’t result. “You will never get around 15 per cent of the waste,” said Metro engineer and planning manager Ken Carrusca. “So the ceiling is around 85 per cent.” Consider, he said, the optimistic scenario where 90 per cent of people recycle 90 per cent of their waste. That means, at best, 81 per cent of materials go for recycling. Take into account the unrecyclable residuals that processors leave behind, he said, and it gets difficult to even reach 70 per cent, a level no

What would something approaching a zero-waste society look like? Spiegelman sees a world far removed from the “hyper-commercial” lifestyle that so far prevails. She envisions “discard malls” – reuse centres where people will swap used good instead of buying new – along with new green recycling industries. “You’ll see a lot more spent on stewardship of things we own, rather than just consumption and disposal,” she said. “You’ll see repair shops. People having their favourite shoes repaired and maintained. It means no longer throwing something away.” It amounts to a seismic shift in consumer behaviour. “Our children are not going to be able to do what we did. We

are burning and burying their resources,” she added. Spiegelman walks the talk. She buys black beans in bulk and cooks them in a big vat to be frozen – the resulting meals last a month, save money and avoid stacks of cans. You don’t find single-serving convenience meals in her cupboard. She bakes and sews and grows what she can. “These are practices in the home that people aren’t doing because they’re so busy making money so they can buy more stuff.” At the end of a week, her garbage bin is empty but for about two cups of mainly film plastic – everything else is recycled or composted. A self-described eccentric, Spiegelman accepts that not everyone is going to willingly do what she does. That’s where cities and Metro come in, she says, by blocking the option of cheap, easy disposal that subsidizes over-consumption. She said engineers need new instructions – stop making our garbage disappear – a message that runs counter to the idea of turning waste into energy in an incinerator.

Warm welcome for soldier returning home Hannah Sutherland

W

Staff Reporter

hile Andrew Molson has visited his uncle’s Ocean Park home countless times throughout his life, never has there been a reception quite like last weekend’s. When he pulled into the familiar driveway Saturday, he was met by his uncle, Peter Hawkins, and a bagpiper. Tears came to Hawkins’ eyes as he embraced his nephew for the first time since the 23-yearold left for Afghanistan nine months ago. The piper then began playing, as Molson walked through the carport and into the backyard, where around 20 family members and friends clapped to his arrival. “It was just to say, ‘Hey, you’re back, we love you and good job,’” Hawkins said of the afternoon barbecue. Molson, a Surrey resident, ❝It strikes home been a reservist for five because it’s one had years before leaving Oct. 16 of your family... for Afghanistan, where he cleared roadways with the fighting in a foreign land.❞ Expedient Route-Opening Capability (EROC) system. Peter Hawkins Although he believed in soldier’s uncle the mission, it was still hard to be away from family, including his uncle and aunt, Margaux Molson, who he kept in touch with through email. “It was very difficult, but I had a lot of support

back home and everyone believed in me.” Hawkins – whose father was killed at 21 years old, during the Second World War – said he had trouble watching news reports of wounded or deceased soldiers in Afghanistan. “Most of those Canadians that are lost, they’re (Molson’s) age; it’s such a great loss,” he said. “It strikes home because it’s one of your family, my nephew going off to war, fighting in a foreign land.” After returning from duty May 24, Molson made a point to visit his uncle’s home, where he spent time every summer while growing up. “I was happy to see my uncle – I was very surprised,” he said of the welcoming he received. Hawkins – who was given a banner from Kandahar of his favourite football team, the Seattle Seahawks – said the feeling of being reunited is hard to put into words. “When he’s (in Afghanistan) and (there are) all the possibilities that could happen and the things you try not to think of, you think, ‘Geez, did I say everything to him if something did happen? Did I give him the love and affection that he needed? “Then when he gets back, you get welled into a comfort zone because you can see and hear him.” Although, the nephew he saw wasn’t quite the same as the one who left nine months ago. “He was more mature, a little quieter – he’s seen a lot,” Hawkins said. “He was a fine young man.”

Dynamic young vocalist and guitarist Tommy Vander Kam (also known as Tommy Alto) took the top spot at the second annual Ocean Park Idol contest, June 6 at Ocean Park Village Pub and Restaurant. Out of a strong field of up-andcoming Ocean Park area performers, Vander Kam won with his heartfelt, self-accompanied version of the Johnny Cash classic Folsom Prison Blues. Known for his mature voice and spellbinding stage presence, the performer has paid dues working as a guitarist, vocalist, bassist and drummer with several local bands. Now focusing on a solo career, he has produced and engineered a number of recordings at local studios, and recently released an EP on his own independent label.

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?

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.

We have lived in White Rock over 20 years and have enjoyed reading the Peace Arch News. The Peace Arch News has a wonderful local community style to it, it’s one of the things that gives White Rock its “sea side village feel”. However when we opened up a retail showroom this past April, we also realized how effective advertising in the Peace Arch News can be for business. Most recently, an ad for an innovative new product, in their monthly Young At Heart feature, drove more than a dozen people into our showroom in less than 2 days. Through the Peace Arch News we are able to reach out to all of our customers throughout the peninsula and we are very pleased with the local response to our business.

First place for ensemble Surrey-based Westcoast Harmony Chorus came home from the Western Canada Sweet Adelines International competition with something to sing about. Under the direction of Anne Marteniuk and Joey Minshall, the women’s chorus placed first in midsize division (31-60 singers) and second overall. Westcoast has 45 singers, while Lions Gate Chorus, the first place winner overall, had 100 singers on stage. There were 14 ensembles in total at the regional competition, held in Calgary in early May. Westcoast’s score (more than 600) qualified co-director Anne Marteniuk to attain the status of Master Director, a designation that comes only after completing the Director Certification Program and the chorus being directed scores more than 600 in a contest setting. Marteniuk is the youngest ever Master Director in Sweet Adelines’ history at age 23.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Refocusing his aggression Nick Greenizan

E

Sports Reporter

li Rooyakkers has always been an aggressive person – always been quick to “rage on people,” as the young teen puts it. It’s a trait that often served him well in the sports world, where he played aggressive, occasionally violent sports such as rugby, lacrosse and football. Where it hasn’t served him well is off the field, where the tall, lanky 15-year-old has had his share of problems. “I used to go to Semiahmoo (Secondary), but I got kicked out... I got kicked out of a lot of schools, actually,” said Rooyakkers, who is now taking high school courses online through Surrey Connect. “It was fights, lots of stuff. I’ve just always got in fights, and always got in trouble at school.” Last August, Rooyakkers found a better place to focus his aggression – mixed martial arts (MMA), namely kickboxing, at Stephen Lapre’s Dragon’s Den Elite MMA in South Surrey. “I was always fighting, and I really liked watching UFC on TV, so I just found this place on the Internet and signed up for the youth MMA class,” Rooyakkers explained. “It was just twice a week, but I really liked it, so now I’m here five times a week. Here, I can get in fights that I’m allowed to be in... I just really like being in the ring.” The sessions have been beneficial for Rooyakkers on many levels, said Lapre. “School-wise, and a few other things, he was having some trouble, but this has given him something else – he’s really focused his energy on his training,” Lapre said. “He’s a lot more confident in himself now, and isn’t falling back into old habits. Eli’s a good example of what can happen when you decide to start making the right choices.” Rooyakkers’ new sport has done more than just give him an outlet for his emotions – it’s also provided him a positive distraction from other, less-productive activities he could easily get swept up in. “(Stephen) has really helped me stay focused. I know I can’t go out and do some things, because I’ll miss MMA (practice). And I hate missing it, I never feel good when I do,” he said. “Now, I just do my (school) work online,

and stay at home and work out all day. It’s actually kind of boring, but (kickboxing) gives me something good to focus on. It takes up a lot of my time, which is a good thing for me.” After months of training, Rooyakkers finally stepped into the competitive kickboxing ring last month – with his mom, Jennifer, watching from the stands – at the West Coast Can-Am Championships in Burnaby. The two-day event featured some of the top up-and-coming fighters from Canada and the States. Rooyakkers fought in the 140-pound weight class, after he originally weighed in one class higher. “At weigh-ins, he was 142, but there was a computer error and everybody had to weigh-in again later in the day,” explained Lapre. “And when he weighed in that afternoon, he was 138.” Rooyakkers’ debut in the ring wasn’t easy – his opponent had two years experience in the sport, compared to Rooyakkers’ eight months. Even so, he dominated the tworound fight – each round is two minutes – to earn his first victory. “(Lapre) told me I’d be judged on my aggression, so I just went after it right from the start. I kind of raged on him,” Rooyakkers said. “It was a lot of fun... nice to get out there and fight somebody. You go against guys here (in training) but that’s different... you don’t really get the chance to rage on people until you’re in a real competition. “It took a lot out of me – I was so tired after. It was an intense two minutes, and I definitely need to improve my cardio.” He escaped relatively unscathed from the fight, save for a black eye – still visible almost two weeks later. “The kids’ toenail kind of stabbed me in the side, too, so I’ve got a bit of a gross, toenail stab wound,” he laughed. “But nothing major.” His debut in the ring now out of the way, Rooyakkers said he plans on expanding his repertoire, adding Muay-Tai and pankration – a form of grappling – in addition to improving his kickboxing skills. “I can definitely be a lot better, and show a little more control... but I’m still going to rage on guys when I get in there. I’m just aggressive, that’s my style.”

In the title game, White Rock edged the Port Coquitlam Terminators 9-8, with the winning run crossing the plate in the bottom of the last inning. The third-seeded Chicks – who were playing their third game of the day – jumped out to a quick 5-1 lead over topranked and undefeated PoCo, but the lead evaporated by the third inning, when the Terminators played five runs. Not be be outdone, White Rock stormed back in the bottom of the inning to score two themselves, retaking the lead 7-6. In the decisive fifth frame, Port Coquitlam scored two runs in the top half of the inning, but White Rock was able to match with two runs of their own to win the game by one run.

With one minute left to play, however, Vancouver again knotted the back-and-forth game 4-4, sending it to overtime. The teams traded chances in the extra frame, which was played three-on-three, but neither could put the puck in the net, which meant a shootout would decide the winner. The Junior Eagles, shooting first, took a lead when centre Spencer Unger roofed a wrist shot over the Selects’ goalies’ shoulder, and the lead held up for two Vancouver shooters, as Eagles’ netminder Thomas Tustin stood tall between the pipes. The Eagles’ second and third shooters failed to score, which gave Vancouver one last shot to win the game. Tustin, however, made the save to seal the win for the Peninsula squad. “Our philosophy is a little different from some of those select teams – we don’t put out best player on the ice every second shift or try to intimidate anybody,” Coflin said. “We just put the kids in a positive to be competitive and they do the rest. “It was pretty great to see that many gloves and sticks in the air after we won.

OBITUARIES

Eugene (Gene) Renner With great sadness, the Renner family wish to announce the passing of their beloved husband, father and grandfather, Eugene (Gene) Renner, at age 81, on Tuesday, June 1, after a short illness at Langley Memorial Hospital. Gene was a rock of strength to his family, friends and his beloved Zion Lutheran Church in Cloverdale. He was a man of wisdom, humour, integrity, faith, love and decency. Born in Davin, Saskatchewan on April 25,1929, Gene moved to B.C. with his parents Henry and Ida, sister Olga and older brother Martin in 1939. He was 16 when he met the love of his life, Nada Lenson, and they were married on Nov. 12, 1949 at Zion Lutheran Church in Cloverdale. Gene and Nada celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with friends and family at Zion

FRASER, David Francis February 13th, 1950 April 30th, 2010 Passed away at home, age 60. Dave is predeceased by his parents Henry Irving and Jessie Austen Fraser (nee Nolan). He is survived by his brothers, Peter and Austin Fraser and their families; by his wife Carole Fraser (nee Hutchison) and her family; by his son Russell, his daughter Amber, son-in-law Martin Turek and family, and his beloved granddaughter Jayanna. Born in Nova Scotia, and raised in Chilliwack, Dave was a teacher in Prince George, then retired to beautiful White Rock, B.C. His sense of humor, his kindness, and his company will be missed and lovingly remembered by those who knew him.

Lutheran last November. Gene and Nada were blessed with two sons, Reg and Murray. They were also blessed with two lovely daughters-in-law, Reg’s wife Sherry and Murray’s wife Donna, and four grandchildren, Cole, Joel, Quin and Lauren. He is also survived by his sister-inlaw Margaret and her husband Charlie, sister-in-law Lorna, sister-in- law Irene and husband Henry, five nieces, five nephews and numerous cousins and their families. All of Gene’s friends are invited to a Celebration of Life service, taking place on Saturday, June 26 at 3 p.m. at Zion Lutheran Church, 5950 179 Street.

Macdonald, Malcolm Christie June 5, 1926 – May 30, 2010 Loved, and was loved. With great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend. Mal will be dearly missed by Bernice, his wife and best friend of 57 years, his loving children and their spouses Cheryl and Brent, Ross and Cathie, and Ian and Marlene, and his three precious granddaughters Sara, Kelly, and Caitlin. His gracious, welcoming ways and great company will also be missed by nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends. Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Mal left the Prairies to travel the seas in the Navy and following World War II applied his trade as radar technician. For 35 years he worked at this job that he loved, first in Victoria at Island Tug and Barge and later in Vancouver at Seaspan. Upon retirement, Mal and Bernice were able to take several trips together, including visits to Scotland to connect with family there. They also enjoyed winters in Mesa, Arizona, spending many happy days lawn bowling and golfing. At home, they continued to pursue these interests as well as spend time at their camp in Washington. They enjoyed a happy and loving life together. A service of remembrance and celebration of Mal’s life will be held on Saturday, June 19th at 11:30 a.m. at Hazelmere Golf and Country Club, 18150 - 8th Avenue, Surrey, B.C.

WATKINS, Garry, January 10, 1940 - May 26, 2010. It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Garry Watkins. Garry was born in Edinburgh, Scotland and came, with his parents and brother, to Canada when he was 7. After surviving a harsh winter in Winnipeg the family headed west to Vancouver. He became involved in politics at a young age. He was first elected to the Surrey School Board in 1968 and later went on to serve as a Surrey City Councillor for 19 years. One of his greatest accomplishments was helping to preserve the Semiahmoo Trail and Sunnyside Acres. His other passion was teaching. He was a teacher for 42 years and still missed it every day since retiring from the Abbotsford School District five years ago. He will be sadly missed by his wife, Anne; his daughters, Laura Watkins and Julie (David) LaRiviere; son Michael (Selina) Watkins; his grandchildren: Larissa, Lindsay and Nick Warkentin, Erik and Lauren LaRiviere, Sylvia and Ella Watkins. Sadly Garry was predeceased by his son, Thomas Watkins in 2008. He also has one surviving brother Joe Watkins as well as many nieces and nephews. He will be remembered fondly by those who loved and cared about him as being a kind hearted, creative, and a humorous individual. A Celebration of Life will be at 1:00 P.M. Friday, June 25, 2010 at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831 - 28th Avenue, Surrey, BC. Donations to BC Children’s Hospital would be appreciated in Garry’s memory.
