Safety cited in decision to douse plan that would save $800,000 a year

White Rock firefighters declare victory Alex Browne & Tracy Holmes Staff Reporters

White Rock council members say they have chosen safety over savings by retaining the city’s current fire-protection services, rather than entering into a shared-services agreement with the City of Surrey. Tuesday evening’s decision comes after a consultant’s report said the city would have saved more than $800,000 annually going

the shared-services route. But the crunch came when council learned the Surrey proposal could not equal the White Rock department’s response time, particularly in the crucial first two minutes following an alarm or emergency call. White Rock firefighters were celebrating that evening, after having campaigned intensely to maintain the service – including circulating petitions, posting signs and

appealing for support through newspaper advertising. The career crew invested about $16,000 in the effort. “It’s over,” firefighter Mike Stark said the next morning. “The decision came through about 8 p.m. It kind of covered up the (Canucks’ playoff) hockey game pretty quick.” Council’s verdict, which came in an incamera meeting, was unanimous, Mayor

Catherine Ferguson told Peace Arch News the next morning. “This follows seven months of intensive analysis by staff and independent consultants,” Ferguson said, adding that the issue had been just one element of a full-core service review undertaken by the city. Ferguson said the proposal for a sharedservice agreement with Surrey would have  see page 4

what will happen to the new building? It is being built primarily with federal money. Will B.C. have to pay back that sum, and would Surrey be on the hook for any of it? Would a new provincial police force require that much space? Some of the functions the RCMP perform in B.C. would continue, even if the force lost the provincial contract. Another question is about the sheer size of E Division’s administration. The total RCMP workforce in B.C. is about 9,500. It seems amazing that it takes 2,700 of those people to do the administrative and management work. Recognizing that some of the 2,700 are front-line police in specialized units, the fact remains that most of those 2,700 are administrative people – either RCMP or civilian employees. That’s an awful lot of managers and administrators. Overall, the RCMP have done a pretty good job of policing Surrey for the past 60 years. Surrey has also been good for the RCMP – the force has learned a great deal about urban policing from its Surrey experiences, and many top-flight RCMP officers have worked in Surrey at one time. The economic impact of having 2,700 police-related jobs in Surrey will be both significant and welcome. Frank Bucholtz writes Fridays for the Peace Arch News. He is the editor of the Langley Times.

news ALR project would be positive for community, say proponents

Compost-site opposition gathers steam Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Opposition to a compost facility proposed for a South Surrey site is building. Area residents say they have collected nearly 600 signatures against Pilot Grove Development’s project – and they’re not about to ease off on efforts to sway the city against allowing the facility at the site, at 12 Avenue and 176 Street. “Nobody wants it,” said Jean Van Dam, who lives across the road from the proposed site. “There’s so much opposition around here – local residents and up the hill.” Proponents of Pilot Grove Farm, however, insist the project will be a good thing, for the community and composting as a whole. “It is an organic process that we’re doing. It is all about soil... about protecting the soil that grows our food,” said Richard Shatto, a consultant hired by Pilot Grove.

Pilot Grove wants to impact on Sam Hill Creek, as well as the smell they’re build a composting facility with compost sales on certain will emanate if the two lots – at 17690 and facility begins operations.

Neighbours’ concerns include the potential However, Shatto – with Abbotsford-based

Point Nexus Consulting – said smell will not be a factor here, due to the technology. “The more you look into composting, how it works and how biofilters work, the more you realize smell is not going to be a big issue there,” Shatto said. Pilot Grove’s project is “trying to up the bar” on composting – but the company isn’t prepared to wait forever, he said. Shatto cited plans to work with Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s sustainable horticulture program and the Earthwise Society, but added, “The tragedy is that’s all going to go away. I can say we are meeting with Abbotsford… to discuss a project.” At its land-use meeting May 3, the city asked Pilot Grove for an independent peer review. As well, the developer must hold a second public meeting, said Nicholas Lai, manager of planning for South Surrey. An ALC decision is expected in June.

Aunt named in lawsuits The parents of a child killed in an alleged drunk-driving incident two years ago have filed civil suit – naming the girl’s aunt among those from whom they seek damages. Four-year-old Alexa Middelaer died May 17, 2008 after she was struck by a car as she and her aunt, Daphne Middelaer, fed horses at the roadside in Tsawwassen. Several civil suits have been filed in connection with the tragedy, including one filed by Alexa Middelaer Daphne Middelaer a year ago. Last week, parents Laurel and Michael Middelaer each filed statements of claim in B.C. Supreme Court. The claim filed by Michael Middelaer alleges the crash was caused or contributed to by negligence on the parts of both Daphne Middelaer and Delta resident Carol Ann Berner. The Corporation of Delta is also named as a defendant. Daphne Middelaer “failed to keep a proper lookout” while she and Alexa fed horses at the roadside, and “parked dangerously close to the roadway,” the claim states. Regarding Berner, the claim alleges she caused or contributed to the crash in 24 ways, including by failing to exercise care in the control of her vehicle; driving a motor vehicle when her ability to drive was impaired by alcohol, drugs and fatigue, and failing to operate the vehicle in a safe and prudent manner. Daphne Middelaer, who is Michael’s sister, was seriously injured in the collision. Alexa’s grandparents, who were waiting in a parked car, were also hurt. In his suit, Michael Middelaer claims punitive and exemplary damages for injuries including nervous shock, emotional numbness, anxiety and depression. Berner, 56, is scheduled to go to trial this month on impaired-driving charges related to the case. – Tracy Holmes

Roper rollover rekindles safety calls Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Two men were taken to hospital Tuesday afternoon following a rollover collision at Foster Street and Roper Avenue. Area resident Frank Bott said he heard the crash between an older-model Honda and a Volkswagen SUV at about 3:30 p.m. According to Bott, it occurred when the Honda, which was westbound on Roper, hit the back end of the SUV, which was southbound on Foster. Impact caused the SUV to roll. It came to rest on its rooftop. Bott said the male driver of the SUV, a 37-year-old Surrey man, was conscious at the scene, but appeared to be in shock. “I talked to the guy through the back window.

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

editorial

Fire debate may re-ignite in future he writing may not be on the wall for White Rock Fire Rescue Services. But there is a lot of writing now posted on the city’s website – reports from independent consultants retained to look at all aspects of the contentious proposal for a shared-services agreement with Surrey Fire Department. Those who might be inclined to see this week’s rejection of that option as vindication of White Rock firefighters and their supporters’ emotion-based statements in recent months would be well-advised to read the reports. Council, in a commendable desire for transparency about the information it gathered, has made it public. And that includes information that could be used to make a strong argument – fiscally, at least – for contracting out fire services to Surrey. According to this information, the shared-service arrangement would have saved the highly burdened taxpayers of White Rock more than $800,000 each year – cumulatively, $22 million over a 20-year period. It’s food for thought, making it hard to imagine this issue will not be revisited somewhere down the road, even if by a future council. The current council made a logical decision – for now – in hewing to a line of not altering citizens’ safety one iota, or placing any amount of dollars saved over sanctity of human lives. (If debating this sounds cold, imagine such principles carrying over into the Ministry of Health, where such risks are calculated every day.) Although the Surrey proposal appeared workable – it would not have cost a single firefighting job and would have provided, in the consultants’ views, excellent service – there was one last question that could not be answered to council’s satisfaction. Given that the majority of White Rock Fire Rescue’s work is first-response first aid, and White Rock includes a high seniors population, council could not receive sufficient assurances that contracting out to Surrey would equal or better White Rock’s response in the crucial first two minutes of an emergency. This is the narrow margin by which White Rock’s department comes out ahead. But, as some council members are discussing privately, that two-minute gap is a narrow margin indeed, and with demographics evolving and new strategies becoming available, it could close in time. It would be foolhardy for anyone to decide now that entering into a shared services agreement with Surrey one day won’t become the better bet.

yes 68% no 32% 89 responding already planned, and she acquiesced without a fight – to watch the game with friends at a barbecue. Of course, with the arrival of the little bundle of joy, things changed quickly. The new plan – one obvious to everybody but me, it seems – was to go and see the baby after work. You know, during the game. I didn’t want to seem insensitive – and I’m genuinely happy about little one’s arrival – but I really wanted to see the game. Badly. I mean, it’s the post-season, and the Canucks were on the ropes, down two games to one at the time. Can’t miss that, right? Right?? So I did my best to get off the hook. “It’s do or die, backs against the wall, gotta support the team,” I cried – probably louder than the newborn – in an attempt to weasel out of it. “I’ll see the baby after – and lots of times in the coming years,” I said. “This game only happens once!” Eventually, after much whining, er, I mean convincing, it was decided that she would go to hospital and see her niece, and I would go to the barbecue and see my team. To her credit, she wasn’t upset, nor angry. She, bless her heart, understood. But she still couldn’t let it go without taking one final shot. “I’m convinced that you’d miss the birth of your own child for a Canucks’ playoff game,” she said near the end of the discussion. “Oh, gimme a break,” I responded. “Now you’re just being ridiculous.” Then, after a brief pause... “Well, what round of the playoffs?” Nick Greenizan is the sports reporter at the Peace Arch News.

They only talk green

Have some compassion

Editor: It is important for voters to know how our local officials act when they are beyond the view of their local voters, particularly on the environmental and food-security issues that top the polls as matters of concern. Very little coverage is given to what happens at Metro Vancouver board meetings, but decisions that affect sustainability throughout the region are made there. March 26 was a good example. Barely more than a year after the board – in pre-election mode – voted to keep Maple Ridge’s historic Jackson Farm in the Metro Vancouver green zone, Maple Ridge put it back on the agenda. The only person from the Peninsula who voted to preserve this important piece of regional foodlands was Surrey Coun. Judy Villeneuve. But her voice for sustainability was crushed by the asphalt votes of Couns. Linda Hepner, Marvin Hunt and Tom Gill from Surrey and Mary-Wade Anderson from White Rock. Given that White Rock doesn’t have an inch of its own farmland, I wonder what Anderson expects the local population to eat if she continues to support the destruction of farmland. As for Surrey, voters have got to wake up to the fact that our council talks green and votes black – and if we want any hope of a sustainable environment, we have to make some serious changes to council. Donna Passmore, White Rock

Editor: South Surrey/White Rock has become a heaven for seniors to live. It has a lot to offer, including the weather, local shopping, many eateries, senior centres and assisted living, etc. It is also a great area for those less fortunate with different handicaps. This is where my son fits in, as he was a victim in 1996 in an auto accident. A car backed out across two lanes at night in the winter in front of the car my son was a passenger in. He is paralyzed and blind on his left side and, like many people in the area, he drives an electric scooter with a black canopy. Where he lives near the Semiahmoo Mall is a great location because the things I mentioned earlier and the number of parks within scooter distance. It is also a dangerous area to be when he is driving his scooter. Drivers of cars don’t realize the danger they cause when they drive too fast for the conditions – which includes pedestrians, cyclists and scooter riders. He has been hit at least three times in his scooter and not one person stopped to see how he was. They just hit him, backed up and drove on like a hit-and-run. The last time, after a person backed out of a parking stall at the mall and hit his knee, the driver bawled him out for hitting his car. He now has constant pain from

the knee that is paralyzed and he can’t walk without it hurting too much. He was able to walk with a brace but now he is back in his old wheelchair. The person who hit him just drove away after yelling at him. Isn’t there a saying about walking a mile in someone else’s shoes or there but for the grace of God go I? We will all be old folks one day or – heaven forbid – injured like my son, so have some compassion, slow down, keep your eyes on the road and take responsibility for your actions. With all of us baby boomers heading that way, it’s even more important to get into that caringabout-other-people mind frame. For that last driver who hit him – and made some comment that our son shouldn’t be driving – well, that scooter is his life. It gives him his freedom to get around without having to count on other people. Maybe the person who uncaringly backed into him should give up their car and see what a life he has. Brian Lauder, Surrey

Community feel still lives on Editor: Re: We’re a city in name only, April 28 letters. I have waited to see if anyone would point out the glaring error in John Vye’s letter to the editor. Whether or not Shoppers Drug Mart is in White Rock, we do have – and will continue to have – a great post office in this city.

It is in Peoples Pharmacy, 1463 Johnston Rd. The staff throughout the store are pleasant, caring and helpful, a wonderful example of independent businesses which still exist in White Rock, just as they did when we came here in 1974. I agree it’s sad to see all the empty stores but the community feeling still exists and works its magic with warm smiles and greetings among neighbours and visitors. If those who live here remain loyal and supportive, let’s hope prosperity will return before too long. Alison M. Smith, White Rock

Editor: A huge thank you to Semiahmoo House’s rec and leisure program for their awesome programs. Those of us who attended performances at the Coast Capital Theatre Playhouse were entertained by some incredible theatre, along with singing, rock and African drum/dance. The performers were confident and ever so amusing. So hats off to each and every one of you… you were not only all brilliant, but inspiring as well. None of this would be possible without the dedication and commitment bestowed upon our children from the wonderful rec and leisure staff. Your hard work is so very appreciated. We anticipate another wonderful performance in 2011! The Stoneham family, White Rock

Metal move applauded Editor: Re: City tries to put dent in scrap-metal heists, May 5. The Surrey Board of Trade applauds and supports the efforts of the Surrey council to reduce and prevent metal theft with its bylaw to regulate Surrey scrap metal dealers, in a similar manner to pawnbrokers and second-hand dealers. For a number of years, the Surrey Board of Trade has received reports and complaints of metal theft ranging from the theft of metal cladding on buildings, awnings, signs and of greatest concern, electrical and communication cables. One board member caught a group of thieves, masquerading as a machine service crew, disassembling a forklift right on his mill’s premises – in broad daylight. This problem has been a very expensive plague on businesses throughout the city, and in the industrial areas in particular. The Surrey Board of Trade has long advocated for, and strongly supported the city, in establishing the strongest possible measures within its jurisdiction. Well done, council! James Stewart, Board of Trade

Newly operational traffic lights on Marine Drive at Vidal Street brought traffic to a standstill, writes John Howard.

Light speed stalls Marine drivers An open letter to White Rock council. One wonders who was the dummy who proposed – and, more importantly, the numbskull that approved – the installation of traffic lights on Marine Drive? On Sunday afternoon, it took over 10 minutes to travel from Oxford Street to the Boathouse light. We were probably an additional five minutes crawling

towards the lights from the west, traffic from the east being almost to the top of the Hump. How long will it take before there is admission of error and they take the lights back out again? Presumably someone in the city just couldn’t wait to get their hands on some of that stimulous money. John Howard, Surrey

In response to another Campbell question, Stanton said there are six to eight lots that could be subject to townhouse-style redevelopment in the neighborhood, including a zoning bylaw amendment and development permit application also considered at Monday’s committee meeting. The application, for properties at 1444 and 1456 Everall St., was recommended for council approval to proceed to first and second readings – and additionally, was also praised as a good example of why a case-by-case approach would work for the neighborhood. Stanton noted the developer had been flexible in meeting city requirements and advisorydesign-panel recommendations regarding such items as roof lines and tree retention. In response to questions from Coun. Helen Fathers, Stanton said that under the new tree management bylaw, the 12 trees that would be cut for construction would be replaced by 21 new trees on the site and also the funds for 22 more trees would be placed in a ‘tree bank’ which would eventually add more trees to city-owned land.

Marine marker found in Crescent Beach The discovery of a device that “burns violently” when used to mark a position on the water sent members of the RCMP’s marine explosive device unit to Crescent Beach Saturday. The marine location marker (MLM) was reported to police at 3 p.m., after a passerby spotted “an unexploded flare-like object” on a pathway at the foot of Beecher Street. MLMs, which contain phosphorus, are often used by ships and aircraft during search and rescue operations. According to the Canadian navy’s website, when dropped into the water, they emit “large clouds of dense smoke and burn violently” for up to 20 minutes. The devices – 47 cm in length and weighing 1.7 kg – are designed to sink after they have expended, however, a small number that do not completely burn off wash ashore. Anyone who finds an MLM is warned not to touch it, as it is possible the device could reignite and cause

serious burns. Only a total lack of oxygen can extinguish the flare. “MLMs pose a potential hazard to the public that must be taken seriously,”

reads a notice on the navy’s website. “MLMs should only be handled by military or police members who have received training on the disposal of unexploded

ordinance.” Police say the device found Saturday did not reignite. Members of the EDU seized and disposed of it. - Tracy Holmes

It was also surprising to note that most of these people did not purchase travel insurance to protect them in such emergencies.

or 11 Earl Marriott Secondary students, spring break involved smashing rocks with mallets, mixing cement and making gravel with the simplest of tools, such as small shovels, pick axes and wheelbarrows. While the labour may sound like a form of punishment to some – especially during two weeks of freedom from school – the teens chose to spend their holiday hard at work. And they weren’t on just any construction site. The group was in Kenya, Africa, helping to build a Grade 4 schoolhouse with locally supplied equipment in a small village in the Masai Mara area. They made the trip with three Lord Tweedsmuir students, a parent and two teachers through social enterprise Me to We, in order to add onto the school, which already had 10 schoolhouses and serves 300 children. The Peninsula students – who range from Grades 9 to 12 – fundraised for their journey by selling biodegradable water bottles, before departing March 5. They stayed in a campsite outside the school – surrounded by an electrical fence to keep

wildlife at bay – and spent four to six hours a day building the schoolhouse’s foundation. But it wasn’t all work and no play. The volunteers also had opportunities to enjoy their surroundings, going on a safari, visiting the Maasai market and playing with the children in the village, who thanked them for their visit by writing letters. While the students attracted many stares – it was the first time some Africans had seen a Caucasian person – they never felt threatened. For Grade 11 student Emma Cummings, the

whole experience gave her a new perspective on what many Westerners take for granted. “You have to be grateful for your life here.” To pass on what they learned, the students are planning to visit local elementary schools and speak to classes about their trip. “(Me to We) encourages you to go on and talk about your trip,” Cummings said. “They really want us to be ambassadors of change.” The group visited Peace Arch Elementary upon their return, where they presented a slideshow of pictures to Grade 3 students. “They were really excited,” Grade 12 Sasha Jivung said. Although elementary students are too young to take part in Me to We trips, Jivung said she hopes they take advantage of the opportunity upon entering high school. “We just wanted them to know about it. I think the biggest problem is people want to help… but they don’t know how to get started.” Earl Marriott plans to continue reaching out, with another group planning to travel to India with Me to We during spring break next year, and the students who just returned collecting supplies and letters for children at the school they were helping to build.

INSTANT REBATE

Band spreads joy in Cuba A recent trip to Cuba turned into more than just an opportunity to perform for 73 Elgin Park Secondary band students. On top of four performances – including an open-air concert in Havana – the Grade 9s through 12s also spread goodwill. Before leaving April 26, they held a car wash fundraiser at their South Surrey school, collecting around $500 for a washing machine and baby supplies they donated to a Cuban orphanage during their visit. “A washing machine is a huge luxury in Havana,� said Jacinta Gustainis, one of the parents who, along with teachers, also went on the trip. The tour was organized through Canada Cuba Sports and Cultural Festivals, which provides joint programs of exploration in the arts, sports and education. During their week-long stay, the Elgin travellers performed in music schools, where they in turn listened to Cuban music students. The visitors also brought along

news An expanded Cache Creek landfill is pitched as solution

Is burying the best option? Is landfilling a waste of resources or does it provide an acceptable way to dispose of garbage while Metro Vancouver strives to increase recycling? This second installment in a Black Press series on waste management looks at the Cache Creek landfill. Jeff Nagel Black Press

The arid sagebrush hills of the Fraser Canyon country have long been a dumping ground for Metro Vancouver’s garbage. Since 1989, a fleet of diesel trucks has hauled growing loads of Metro’s waste 325 kilometres east to the Cache Creek regional landfill. The dry climate means less rain flows through the garbage and less toxic leachate forms. And the locals, for the most part, don’t complain – 120 jobs there buoy the local economy. “The mood has always been very supportive,” says Cache Creek Mayor John Ranta. “We’d like to enhance the community stability by keeping those jobs.” His village is a partner in the plan to create a large new landfill, next to the existing nearby full dump, that could continue taking Lower Mainland garbage for up to 25 more years. Metro officials once pursued the same strategy. They first tried to expand the Cache Creek

enterprises like ecotourism and wildlife viewing. Outlining the problem is easier than proposing solutions. Promoting a simpler, lessaffluent lifestyle is all very well for the developed world, but does it make any sense in lands where merely staying alive is a constant struggle? At the risk of giving offence, I can suggest two facets to the problem which themselves suggest the response: population growth and unthinking application of technological possibilities. World population is now more than six billion and rising; earth’s resources cannot sustain this increase at present rates of consumption.

CITY NEWS COUNCIL UPDATE Fire Services

Mayor Catherine Ferguson

Over the past year, the City of White Rock has been reviewing its core services in an effort to ensure efficient and effective use of its resources. After months of analysis by staff and independent consultants, Council has decided against any further consideration of a proposal for fire protection services in White Rock to be provided through a shared fire services agreement with the City of Surrey. From the outset Council mandated the proposal would have to meet three objectives in order to be considered—namely, equivalent or improved levels of service, significant cost savings and no job losses for White Rock firefighters. The City contracted two independent consultants to review the proposal’s impact on public safety and one to report on the proposal’s financial savings, which was estimated at in excess of $800,000 annually.

Councillor Councillor Mary-Wade Anderson Al Campbell

Councillor Helen Fathers

Under the proposal the City of Surrey would have provided fire suppression, emergency response, fire prevention, inspection, emergency planning and other specialized services to White Rock. Although the proposal did meet a number of objectives laid out by Council—including no job losses, significant cost savings, improved response to structural fires and service levels above the national standards--the issue of medical response times was a concern. The analysis indicated that the medical response coverage would be better from the White Rock Fire Hall, particularly in the first two minutes of travel time. After the four minute mark the coverage from both the Surrey and White Rock Halls was equal. Although

Councillor Doug McLean

Councillor Lynne Sinclair

Councillor Grant Meyer

Surrey’s proposal provided for a two-person crew to be stationed at the White Rock Hall during peak hours, response times in the evening hours would be lower than what White Rock residents currently receive. Given White Rock’s high percentage of medicalrelated calls, Council felt the proposal did not meet its objectives and unanimously opted not to take the process any further and remain with the status quo. The consultants’ reports are available for review on the City website and at the City Hall. The Core Services Review process will continue over the coming months.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Semiahmoo grad brings real-life experience to latest role as sailor

From the high seas to theatre stage Alex Browne

W

Arts Reporter

hen James Hussen first played the role of a British salt in the 2005 Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan Society production of HMS Pinafore, he little suspected that three years later he’d be braving 30-foot swells on the deck of a tall ship sailing from Japan to Victoria. Yes, he’d always enjoyed kayaking and sailing and being on the water – but he hadn’t yet heard the call of the sea. But next week, as he dons the uniform of a sailor of the “Queen’s Nav-ee” in the latest version of the Gilbert & Sullivan classic (May 19-29), the 22-year-old will bring the authority of an experienced sailor to the Surrey Arts Centre studio stage. Mind you, not that authenticity – or true seamanship – is at a premium in this tuneful satire of the British Navy in the 1870s. Playing on a general suspicion that the contemporary navy was not the seafaring force of Admiral Nelson’s day, Gilbert and Sullivan were having quite a bit of fun with a ship named for a young girl’s garment – and a crew more occupied with the sisters and cousins and aunts of the First Lord of the Admiralty. “There’s some things we’re doing that would have got you a few lashes with the ‘cat’ (o’ nine tails) if you’d really done them in the old days,” laughs Hussen. “There’s a few technical things I’ve had to keep my mouth shut about because of the realities of the stage. “I think the biggest thing I’m bringing to it (this time) is an understanding of some of the humour of it – Gilbert was apparently a bit of a sailor and he included quite a few nautical terms.” Names of characters such as Bob Becket (Hussen’s role), Bill Bobstay and Dick Deadeye are all derived from parts of a ship, Hussen notes. “A becket is a rope used to secure things, while a bobstay is a stabilizing line from the tip of the bowsprit to the hull. The deadeye is a very important part of the ship that

holds it all together – without it all the masts would fall down.” Nautical technicalities aside, the show – helmed by director Rick Harmon, choreographer Carol Seitz and musical director Vashti Fairbairn – bids fair to be grandly amusing in the witty FVGSS style, bringing together such stalwarts as James Walker (Sir Joseph Porter), Debra Da Vaughn (Josephine), Dale Szohner (Captain Corcoran), Christopher Simmons (Ralph Rackstraw), Reg Pillay (Deadeye), Matt Hume (Bobstay), Cathy Wilmot (also co-producer, with Arne Larsen, as Buttercup) and Laura Luongo (Cousin Hebe). And Hussen – whose entire family have been involved in FVGSS shows for as long as he can remember – is appreciative of the entertainment value of the production. “It’s a fun show with catchy music and a great cast – what more can you ask?” But while he enjoys being onstage and backstage for the shows, he’s determined to make the sea his career – so much so that he has worked in a shipyard, volunteered for a tall ship festival, participated in a sailing camp in the Gulf Islands and just interviewed for the Canadian Coast Guard’s fouryear officer training program. Hussen, a Semiahmoo Secondary grad who has studied at Camosun College, BCIT and the Justice Institute of B.C., gained his nautical knowledge and much of his love for the sea from a three-month stint as a crew member of the Pacific Grace in 2008. A 137-foot gaff-rigged schooner (the term refers to a boom above and below the sails) modelled on a traditional East Coast fishing vessel, the Grace is operated as a training ship by the Victoria-based Sailing and Life Training Society. Hussen applied to the society and was accepted as a crew member for one of the Pacific Grace’s longer voyages – a return trip from Osaka, Japan by way of Hawaii and Midway Island.  see page 22

Seniors Escorted Cruise 2011 with Sandy

Sailing ‘like an escape’  from page 21 He was one of 37 students aboard in quarters so cramped that he had to step across the galley table to get out of his bunk, but Hussen loved every minute of it, including the time, right after they left Japan, when the storms were so fierce that the ship was forced to “hove to.” “That’s the nautical term, basically, for parking in the middle of the ocean,” he explains. “You balance the force of the wind on the sails and just drift at around one knot, bobbing up and down rather than crashing through the waves.” While that might be too intense for some stomachs, the exhilarating feeling of being under full sail in good weather is not something easily forgotten. “With a fair wind, going at eight to 10 knots, it feels almost effortless.” One of his favourite things to do was sit aloft on the foremast in a place where all he could see was the ocean – not even the deck beneath him. “It’s akin to going for a hike in the woods in a remote area – there’s a very pure feeling to it. “It’s like an escape. You get a very different sense of what’s important. All the worries of everyday life disappear. You’re more concerned with the here and now, not about what’s going on in a month. “I think that was one of the appeals of going to sea, even back in the old days of the Royal Navy. You may not have realized what life would bring – but you knew it was going to be an adventure.” For tickets, call 604501-5566 or visit www. fvgss.org

Concert a challenge for Strings Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Fans of the exhilarating and dramatic in music – and the energy and technical mastery of one of the Peninsula’s true musical wonders, the Semiahmoo Strings – are in for a treat next week. Directed by Carla Birston, the latest in the musically sophisticated youth orchestra’s concerts combines the tempestuous drama of Bizet’s Carmen, the hyperemotionalism of Giazotto’s Adagio in G Minor (featuring emerging cello star Roland Gjernes) and a suite of film themes by Ennio Morricone and his son, Andrea, arranged by co-director Harold Birston. Even the youngest group, the Demi-Semiahmoo Strings, get into the cinematic act with Harold’s Double Agent, which combines themes from Lalo Schifrin’s Mission: Impossible and Monty Norman’s James Bond.

Brian Giebelhaus photo

Kierah Raymond and Joanna Huang are set to perform. “The music is way beyond them, really, “ Carla said, noting the piece’s complex 5/4 rhythms. “But they will do whatever it takes to play this – I think it’s all they’ve practised for the last

month.” Added Harold: “It’s nice to hear children getting jazz harmonies in their ears so early.” Added impetus for senior students is the chance to work with percussionist Phillip Crewe in both the Morricone music and the Carmen Suite, which Harold calls an “almost subversive” reworking of Bizet’s themes by 20th century Russian composer Rodion Shchedrin. Taylor Fee, 16, adds 1980s-style electric bass to some of Morricone’s music. “The first time we did Carmen, in 2003, was somewhat terrifying – but this is a joy. There are a lot of highly difficult things in it, but the kids seem to thrive on it. They’re a very close, tight group – supportive of each others’ talents and successes. “It’s a rare group.” The May 19 performance is at 7:30 p.m. at Earl Marriott Secondary’s Wheelhouse Theatre.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Rams hit gridiron After a season in which they advanced all the way to the B.C. finals, the Big Kahuna Rams began preparing for what they hope is an equally successful follow-up performance when they held their annual spring camp last weekend. Coaches got a chance to see firsthand some of the top young football prospects from across Western Canada at the three-day camp, which was held at South Surrey Athletic Park. More than 100 players – including a handful of returning veterans – donned pads and hit the field in front of coaches and team brass which, in addition to head coach Chris Butschler, also included new defensive backs coach Will Loftus – a former Ram who went on to a 10-year career in the Canadian Football League – and guest coach Shawn Olson, a former Rams quarterback and now head coach with the UBC Thunderbirds. The staff put players through three days of drills and testing before the young charges were given the chance to show their skills in a game situation with the annual Blue vs. White scrimmage Sunday afternoon. The Rams will reconvene in June for its main training camp, which will include the team’s returning players as well as former members of the rival

Vancouver Trojans, some of whom were out last weekend, too. The Trojans will not field a squad in the B.C. Football Conference this year, and the Rams have absorbed many of the Trojans for the coming season, with the understanding that they can return to Vancouver next year if the team is revived. The Rams’ first league game is July 24 in Nanaimo, against the top-ranked Vancouver Island Raiders.

Titans camp Still on the gridiron, the Peninsula’s younger football players will have a chance this weekend to take part in the White Rock-South Surrey Titans’ outdoor movie night and skills camp. Movie night – in which Remember the Titans will be shown tomorrow (Saturday) on a 30-foot-tall screen at the Titans’ practice field at South Surrey Athletic Park – is open to the public, with admission by donation. Gates and concession open at 6:30 p.m. with the film beginning at dusk. On Sunday, the Titans host its annual free Skills and Drills football camp for boys and girls aged five to 18. The camp takes place at SSAP. Registration opens at 10:30 a.m., and the camp runs from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. - Nick Greenizan

In Loving Memory of Our Grandson Edward Stephen Pears January 3, 1989 May 16, 2009 Memories don’t fade, they just grow deep For the one we loved, but could not keep We hold our tears, when we speak your name But the ache in our hearts, remains the same No one knows the sorrow we share, When the family meets, and you’re not there We laugh, we smile, and we play our parts Behind it all, lies broken hearts Unseen, unheard, you’re always near So loved, so missed, so very dear Just as you were, you will always be Forever treasured in our memory

IN MEMORIAM GIFTS

Edward, you were our flame and link that held us together, Now the link is broken but your flame my son I carry for you with such pride and love for who you were to us. May your spirit keep soaring above us, my beautiful child.
