Six drowned after surviving impact

Floatplane victims’ families file suits Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

At least two families of people killed in a November 2009 seaplane crash off Saturna Island are suing the company, pilot and others for negligence. According to documents filed last week in B.C. Supreme Court, White Rock’s Barbara Glenn, her two children and her motherin-law are claiming for general, pecuniary, aggravated, punitive and special damages in the death of Thomas Glenn, 60. The husband of former Semiahmoo Peninsula resident Dr. Kerry Telford, 41, filed a

similar suit this week. The Glenns – childhood friends who had been married 36 years – along with Telford and her infant daughter, Sarah, were passengers aboard a Seair de Havilland Beaver floatplane Nov. 29, 2009, when it crashed shortly after takeoff from Lyall Harbour. Amongst eight people onboard, the pilot, identified in court documents as Francois St. Pierre, and Barbara Glenn were the only survivors. All six victims survived the impact, but drowned before they could escape the plane. A report released in March by the Transportation Safety Board notes a number of

factors contributed to the deaths, including that some of the aircraft’s doors were jammed shut; the doors and windows could not be quickly removed; and, none of those onboard were wearing life-jackets. The report suggests that seaplane passengers should be made to wear life-jackets and that all new and existing floatplanes be fitted with quick-escape exits. According to the Glenns’ suit, Thomas Glenn suffered pain, anxiety and terror in the moments before he died. He had been seated behind and to the left of his wife, in the plane’s back row.

Barbara Glenn, seated in the centre row next to the cabin door, was able to take a breath and struggle, injured, toward a light in the flooded cabin which turned out to be an open door, the documents state. The dental hygienist “never saw her husband alive again.” The suit claims the defendants “were aware of the elevated danger of seaplanes and of flights over water and of specific recommendations within the aviation industry to improve safety…” The defendants have 21 days to respond to the allegations.

Homeless still need help, despite drop in numbers Kevin Diakiw Black Press

She didn’t notice the cut on her foot about a year and a half ago. The small slice got infected though, and on June 7 last year, doctors cut her left leg off below the knee. Vivian-Lee Wareing stayed with a friend briefly after her hospital stay, but had to leave when her friend’s father became ill. Since March 16, 2011, Wareing has stayed at Newton’s Hyland House shelter. The 56-year-old, who worked for Canada Post for two decades, previously owned a daycare,

catering service and restaurant, while wintering in Arizona. She couldn’t have seen this coming in her wildest dreams. “I’ve never known what it was like inside a shelter, let alone be in one,” Wareing said. She has plans to get an apartment in White Rock within the next couple of months, but others with complex medical conditions at Hyland won’t be so lucky. Micheal Parmiter, 46, is diabetic and also lost a leg. He’s blind in one eye and may lose sight in the other. He found himself at Hyland after a disagreement with family. He’s living day by

day, and when asked where he sees himself in five years, he looks puzzled. “Really?” he asks. “Dead.” He can’t see a future that far ahead. Wareing and Parmiter are just two of the 157 sheltered homeless in Surrey, a figure that’s gone up by 62 over the last three years. The good news is most of the increase is from people living on the streets – a population which has dropped by 25 per cent since 2008. A regional count of the homeless on March 16 of this year – and released this week – shows  see page 4

news Surrey students lead Team BC

Chess mates keep competition in check Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A South Surrey youngster who found his niche playing chess two years ago has once again proven his mettle at the game. Luke Pulfer, 7, returned from last weekend’s Canadian Chess Challenge as the country’s Grade 2 champ, after notching nine wins in nine games during two days of intense play as a member of Team BC. Together, the 12-member team – which included Surrey students Matthew Herdin (Grade 7, Star of the Sea), John and Joshua Doknjas (Grade 6 and 3, respectively, Lochiel U’Connect Education Centre) and Tanraj Sohal (Grade 9, Fleetwood Park) – earned the most points the province has ever scored.

The team placed second overall behind Ontario. “Many people commented about Team BC being the strongest this year,” said team captain Victoria Jung-Doknjas. “We came one point away from taking it all this year.” Held at University of Victoria, it was the first time in its 23 years that the championship was in B.C. Surrey competitors proved they have all the right moves. Joshua Doknjas won at the Grade 3 level; John Doknjas won for Grade 6; and Herdin tied for first in Grade 7 play, losing the trophy for his level “by a whisker” to a Nova Scotia competitor during a tie-breaker. Grade 9 student Tanraj Sohal filled out the Surrey trophy count with a third-place finish. For Pulfer, the trophy brings to 26 he’s won playing chess since taking the game up competitively

in 2009. Mom Julie Domovich said he’s hoping to add to the cache in July, when he’ll compete in the Canadian Youth Chess Championship in Richmond Hill, Ont. A win there would earn Pulfer the right to compete in the World Youth Chess Championship, to take place in November in Brazil. The Doknjas brothers are also to compete in Ontario, Jung-Dokjnas said. Her younger son, Joshua, competed at the world level in Greece last year. His brother, John, went to the worlds in 2008. Jung-Dokjnas – who’s competed at the B.C. Women’s Championship – said the game takes focus. “It takes one second, one move, and after a brilliant game, it could just be sabotaged,” she said. “You make one blunder, it turns the whole thing File photo around.” Luke Pulfer on his game.

Rowing regatta draws teen racers Boaz Joseph Black Press

From a distance, seen from Highway 99 as it crosses Deas Slough, they look like water striders – the insects that walk on water. From the other side, off the dock at the Delta Deas Rowing Club, they come into focus as dedicated high school students working hard for an upcoming regatta. The back of a T-shirt belonging to Amanda Serek, a 15-year-old Grade 10 student from Sands Secondary, says it all: Row Hard or Die. The juniors, students aged 15-18, are preparing for the 22nd annual Scholastic Regatta on May 28 and 29 at Deas Island Regional Park. They’re part of two programs – juniors and masters (adults) – that the 25-year-old rowing club offers. The club has about 50 masters members and a dozen juniors – most from South Surrey’s Earl Marriott Secondary – with eight juniors competing at the end of the month. “We’re a small club,” admits coach Alex Bond, a former juniors rower at Delta Deas who came back last year to coach after winning a rowing scholarship at the Washington State University. “Traditionally we’ve been known as the

underdog and we’re trying to change that.” Late last month, Delta Deas came third, fourth, sixth and seventh, as well as clinching one first-place spot (the boys Jr. B doubles) in five races at the Brentwood Regatta in Mills Bay on Vancouver Island. Unlike other clubs that have larger facilities and boat trailers, Delta Deas is limited to singles, doubles and quads, and all are scullers, meaning that each rower works both sides of the craft. Bond says a big misconception with rowing is that people must start when they’re young. Indeed, while the juniors program is intended for those in Grades 8-12, the club’s learn-to-row program is suitable for adults of

all ages – including one member in her 80s. Beginners learn the lexicon early: They’re shells, not boats. They’re oars, not paddles. And the coxswain (the person who commands the crew and rudder) is pronounced “coxin” or “coxie.” While rowing can be competitive, “it’s not a collision sport,” says regatta chair Joy Fera. “(People are) not getting bowled over like in football or hockey or basketball.” Fera says that while Deas Slough allows races of no more than 1,000 metres – onethird to half the length of some other regattas – it does offer a good breakwater, protection from wind, and the short distance makes for competitive sprints on the water. The public is invited to watch the Scholastic Regatta on May 28 and 29. Races will start at 8 a.m. both days – just bring a lawn chair, binoculars and dress for the weather. Fera says there will be more than 300 rowers from high schools through the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island. Delta Deas Rowing Club is located on Deas Island Road, off 62B Street (River Road). Delta Deas Rowing Club welcomes new members. Visit www.deltadeas.com or call 604-946-3074. The club will host the Cascadia Masters Regatta on July 23 and 24.

A service to celebrate the life of White Rock resident Marilyn Laursen – killed last week as she walked across Johnston Road – is to take place Monday at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre. The 56-year-old died May 18, after she was struck by a car at the intersection of Johnston and Thrift Avenue. The vehicle left the scene, and police continue to search for who was behind the wheel. Still in shock at the death of his sister-in-law, Neale McCutcheon wonders if the facility booked for the celebration of life will be large enough to hold Marilyn Laursen all who knew and cared for remembered Laursen. “There’s lots of relatives, lots of friends,” he said this week. “She was a really wonderful, giving person.” According to an obituary, Laursen had one daughter and four siblings, and worked in the transporation/ logistics industry. Mavis McIntosh told Peace Arch News she first met Laursen about seven years ago, when Laursen started to work for her at Rite Way Freight Systems in south Langley. McIntosh described Laursen as a go-getter who loved her job as a freight broker. “She took it on with a passion.” The pair stayed friends after Laursen moved to a position with another company about three years ago. They enjoyed wine together a few weeks ago, and last spoke the Friday before Laursen died. “She touched a lot of people,” McIntosh said, remembering a happy-go-lucky woman who had an intense love for shoes. McIntosh said she is hesitant to make assumptions on the driver responsible for Laursen’s death. “It could be somebody’s son or daughter – you might even know them,” she said. “Their life’s ruined as well.” Monday’s service is set for 2 p.m. (14831 28 Ave).

Shelters no solution: Greenwell 40%  from page 1 the number of homeless people on the street in Metro Vancouver dropped by 843, or 54 per cent, since the last count in 2008. The preliminary figures show Surrey now has 231 street homeless and 157 sheltered. But the figures are inconclusive as far as White Rock and South Surrey homeless are concerned, Peninsula Homeless to Housing Round Table facilitator Peter Greenwell said. “The White Rock numbers have been rolled into the Surrey numbers at this point.” And while regional figures point to a shift of the homeless population from street to shelters, there has been no additional shelter space opened for the homeless on the Peninsula over the last three years, he said, other than the extreme weather shelter established by First United Church. “Youth are underserved for shelters and seniors are underserved for shelters,” he said. Greenwell noted the full findings of the count are not expected until mid-July. “There is great interest from the mayor and council that White Rock numbers are made available separately from the Surrey numbers,” he said, adding that until there is a complete breakdown of figures, analysis is difficult. “At the minimum, we know there are 388 people in Surrey and White Rock without any

form of housing at all,” he said. “We know that, in total numbers, it’s as bad as it was three years ago. We know that, while we’ve been able to provide additional shelter space… we still haven’t shown the ability to provide housing for people who are homeless. “The answer to homelessness isn’t providing more shelter space – it’s dealing with the lack of housing.” Peter Fedos, manager of Newton’s Hyland House graduated housing, says while numbers for Surrey show the homeless are being brought in from the street, they don’t show the complex needs of homeless people such as Wareing and Parmiter. Clients are getting older and sicker, Fedos said, adding Surrey needs more supported housing to deal with growing medical issues and mental health challenges. “They may be off the streets, but there are people in the system that have never used it before,” Fedos said. “The population (using the shelter) is older, and they’ve got a lot more complex health issues too... until you deal with those complex needs, you can’t even look at housing.” Surrey Coun. Judy Villeneuve, president of Surrey’s Homelessness and Housing Society, is pleased by the homeless count figures, but agrees with Fedos that there’s still much to do. She says many of the people living on the street are the work-

ing poor – people with jobs that don’t pay enough to cover housing costs. Villeneuve says what’s needed is a decent living wage, particularly given the high price of accommodation. Surrey began a push some time ago to get people into permanent housing. With the help of outreach workers, that has become reality for many. “My concern lies in that I don’t think we’re getting our fair share of funding for outreach workers,” said Villeneuve, also the co-chair of the Metro Vancouver Housing Corporation. Surrey has six outreach workers, whereas Vancouver has 17, Kelowna has seven and even Victoria has more outreach workers than Surrey. “Considering our geographic layout, which is the largest of all of those cities,” Villeneuve said. “The fact that we’re taking in 1,000 new people a month, we really need funding for outreach workers.” She believes many people living without shelter may have mentalhealth needs, or other long-term care issues that require outreach workers to establish a trust. Villeneuve gives some credit to the province, which has invested funds into affordable housing, such as Timber Grove Apartments (an Olympic Legacy project) with 52 suites. She said the federal government needs to create a fully funded national housing strategy. – with files from Alex Browne

HST may yet be saved

I

f the BC Liberal government’s plan to overhaul the HST is not met with complete skepticism by a wary public, the HST may well survive the coming mail referendum to become the province’s sales tax. The plan announced Wednesday – to reduce the HST rate to 10 per cent by July 1, 2014, offer one-time compensation to families with children under 18 and seniors with incomes under $40,000, and boost business tax rates – is ambitious and even audacious. Most importantly, it is a much fairer approach to this issue than anything else the government has rolled out in two years of virtual non-stop HST public relations disasters. Premier Christy Clark deserves some of the credit, as does Finance Minister Kevin Falcon. Falcon (MLA for Surrey-Cloverdale) broached the idea of reducing the HST rate in his leadership campaign. Other members of the BC Liberal caucus have been talking about it for more than a year. Clark ran and won the party leadership on a pledge to look at government actions through a “family first” lens. In other words, “How does this action affect families?” It is an approach that was long ago forgotten by her predecessor, Gordon Campbell, who in his final years as premier seemed to only listen to the business community. An independent panel concluded that the HST was a fundamental tax shift away from business and onto consumers, at a cost of $350 for the “average” family. The tax is also bringing in far more revenue than Campbell ever acknowledged. Anyone could determine that it was far from “revenue neutral,” as an additional 20 per cent of items, formerly exempt from PST, are now subject to HST. To its credit, the business community, which is being asked to pay more in income taxes to help pay for this HST rebalancing, is reacting positively. It recognizes the long-term value of the tax and its fundamental efficiency, but also unselfishly realizes that the tax must be much fairer towards consumers, and must be seen as being much fairer. This “Hail Mary” play by the Clark government may save the tax, and maybe even save its own bacon.

yes 38% no 62% 83 responding Money and time and effort and brainpower is wasted on trying in vain to rehabilitate these rapists and killers. Froese blames his crimes on drug and alcohol use. Schoenborn convinced a judge he had a mental disorder when, three years ago, he killed his three sweet young children. It shouldn’t matter. To be blunt, factories will always produce defective products. Among thousands of perfect creations, one or two will leave the assembly line not quite right. We toss these in the garbage. Froese, Schoenborn et al are the human equivalents and should be treated as such. During the federal-election campaign, NDP Leader Jack Layton was spot on when he called for government to spend money on preventing crime from happening. He’s right. If we spent millions on reaching at-risk youth so they don’t become criminals, petty or otherwise, we wouldn’t need to spend billions housing them a decade down the road. Some of that money can surely come from the millions we now spend trying to fix the Froeses and Schoenborns of the system, through “programs” and “therapy” behind bars. And, with the remaining billions? How about one super-maximum prison high in the Arctic, where the likes of Froese, Schoenborn, Bernardo, Olsen and others can live out the rest of their lives?

Lessons from past councils Editor: Re: Challenges ahead for SCC, May 13. Your columnist, Frank Bucholtz, states the Surrey Civic Coalition has little on which to oppose Mayor Dianne Watts and Surrey First for the civic election next November. Bucholtz used my comments about the extraordinary number of portables on Surrey school grounds to illustrate his point that it would be hard for SCC to attack Watts and council on the schools crisis. And, like Watts herself, he deflected the blame to the provincial government. It is true new school construction is funded by the province. It is also true there has been no new school capital funding for six years. But it is simply not true that there is nothing that Surrey’s council and board of education can do about it. When SCC Coun. Bob Bose was mayor, Surrey’s schools faced the same portables crisis they do now. In response, the council and school board at the time worked in concert to withold building permits in new subdivisions until the city could be reassured that plans and funding for the required new neighbourhood school was in place. The result was that business, realtors and the development industry joined in with students, parents, teachers, and school staff to lobby the provincial government for more schools. And during Bose’s terms as mayor – during the Social Credit ’80s and the NDP ’90s, a record number of new schools were built. The municipal council of the day got real results for Surrey’s students. While SCC supports development that will make our city stronger and a better place to live, it is simply irresponsible to continue to encourage virtually unlimited development in neighbourhoods where the number of portables has reached crisis proportion. Is the school crisis an important issue? The SCC thinks so. But ultimately, the voters will decide. Stephanie Ryan, past SCC president

alternatives. There are too many cars on the road, they are built to go too fast and stylistic innovations trump safety concerns. Drivers are another aspect of the problem. They have seen too many car ads – some are 90 minutes long and call themselves movies – which portray driving as an occasion to have fun and show off. Apparently a high-speed escape from the scene of an accident, to avoid responsibility, is now part of the game. Though police enforcement of traffic laws could be stepped up, it will not be enough. Consideration should be given to ending licensing of minors, raising the standards required for licences and requiring an accident-simulation course. And licences of delinquent drivers should be revoked more frequently – in some cases for life. I would like to give a pedestrian’s perspective about crossing at intersections. Intersections are set up primarily to maximize traffic flow and only secondarily for safety. A crosswalk puts pedestrians on the defensive a few seconds after the light changes to green, by flashing “Don’t Walk” during what remains of their right-of-way. This message is not lost on impatient drivers. It is also not particularly safe for pedestrians to proceed on the “Walk” sign immediately after the light changes. Drivers going straight or turning left routinely speed through a light after it has changed to red for them, and drivers turning right may be entering a crosswalk as

pedestrians are starting to cross. To be effective, measures to end the war on our roads will ultimately have to lower the amount of car use. The costs of business as usual have been kept hidden for too long. David Anson, White Rock

Personal gains not the priority An open letter to White Rock council. Any dialogue concerning the trees in White Rock must include all the management plans, strategic plans, charters and bylaws that White Rock council and staff have passed and committed to on behalf of the citizens of White Rock. The citywide Storm Water Management Plan, adopted July 2010, cost tens of thousands to create and cost us millions to implement. It states, “increasing the amount of tree cover would provide benefits to our storm water management in terms of both volume and quality.” A single tree can have a 61 per cent rain interception rate, providing $25,000 to $35,000 to our SWM plan. The Environmental Strategic Plan adopted September 2008 states: Conserve healthy trees on public and private property and increase the amount of tree canopy. White Rock also passed a Tree Bylaw in May 2010 stating trees provide an essential environmental

function. The city has put in writing that it will not remove trees in contravention of the Provincial Wildlife Act or Riparian Area Regulations committing us to environmental stewardship on all city lands. Trees are to be protected during nesting season. The City of White Rock signed the Climate Action Charter pledging to achieve the following goals to be carbon neutral in corporate operations by 2012. Against this backdrop of bylaws and management plans, we now have a policy that allows for and appears to promote the cutting of healthy trees for individual self interest rather than considering the whole community, pits neighbour against neighbour and divides our wonderful community. The Supreme Court of Canada has said: In our judgment, the municipality is, in a broad general sense, a trustee of the environment for the benefit of the residents in the area of the road allowance and, indeed, for the citizens of the community at large. Therefore, we are all downstream when it comes to the removal of our trees. Our community, through the leadership and governance of the city council and staff, needs to adopt. enforce and stand behind a citywide tree bylaw that covers all White Rock lands, protects trees, stewards the land and treats all of the citizens and the environment of White Rock in an equitable manner. S. Watkins, White Rock

Wartime on our roads Editor: Re: Pedestrian killed, driver flees scene, May 20; Driver seen running from deadly crash scene, May 6. The accidents that have recently claimed the lives of two local women – one a pedestrian – are not simply cases of bad luck. Approximately 400 people are killed each year in road accidents in B.C., and 25,000 are injured. The figures for all of Canada are about 3,000 killed and 200,000 injured yearly. The figures for Canada and the U.S. together are 45,000 killed and 3,000,000 injured yearly. This is a wartime situation. Yet, there is no way to end it without regulation of the car industry and development of transportation

Tree policy needs clarification: committee Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A 201-name petition calling for White Rock council to rescind Policy 611 was not enough to sway the majority into putting a hold on applications to cut city trees for views. But a second, 23-name petition opposing one of three such applications currently being processed under the policy will be considered in staff ’s decision on the request, following unanimous support of a motion to that effect made May 9 by Coun. Doug McLean. The application concerns trees in the 15400-block of Royal Avenue. According to the petition, it was made by a homeowner wanting to “remove all healthy trees opposite their property… at the southern junction of Royal Avenue and Cypress Avenue for the express purpose of enhancing his view.” City manager Peggy Clark said residents in the surrounding area were given until May 13 to comment on the application. If the decision is appealed, it would most likely come to council by May 30, she said. Peace Arch News reported earlier this month that council voted 4-3 against a motion by Mayor Cath-

appealing rejected applications. Andrew Schulz noted there is also no criteria under which city staff can reject a citizen’s application to cut city trees. “If somebody applies and nobody objects, you’re pretty much obligated to cut the tree down,” Schulz commented to Aelicia Otto, the city’s arbourist. “There’s only criteria for cutting it down. That’s the problem with it.” The committee voted to recommend to council that policy amendments include enabling staff to make final decisions on tree applications; that applications for removing, trimming and pruning trees on city land only be considered within the development permit process; that Policy 611 be linked to the city’s heritage-tree policy; and that no applications be considered for trees on designated parkland. Committee chair Wilma Boyd emphasized the policy needs to be clear. “It needs to be strong, because otherwise, it’s still going to waffle,” Boyd said. “It needs to be clear that any healthy tree on city property will be staff ’s and only staff ’s choice

as to how that tree is going to be dealt with.” The committee’s recommendations are expected to come to council Monday (May 30). The policy review is expected complete mid-June. Royal Avenue homeowner Doug McGinn said he just wants the city to have a policy “of sorts.” Had officials moved faster to address the issue, the “circus” of the past months could have been avoided, McGinn said. McGinn told PAN it was his application to have three trees in the 15100-block of Royal Avenue removed that led to council’s controversial Jan. 24 decision. The decision triggered protests at the site and city hall, and led to opponents repeatedly peppering council members with questions during question period. McGinn said he asked to have the three trees trimmed eight years ago, but was told to wait as a policy was being developed. He noted other trees have since been cut or removed without permission by others in the city. “I went through the process. I did it their way,” McGinn said. “Some people don’t. That’s not fair.”

Some cruise ships actually use Honolulu as home port, so you would fly from the mainland to meet the ship. While flying may allow you to spend more of your vacation in the islands, you would miss out on some fun and very relaxing days at sea. You should also know that Hawaii is much more than its beaches.

South Surrey couple opens their doors to people – and animals – who need a helping hand

Providing a safe place to those in need Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

Rather than venturing out into the community and providing support to those in need – as Alan and Judy Daser have been doing for years – the South Surrey couple is setting up an outreach centre so people can come to them. And, what better place to welcome others than their own home. The Dasers plan to open up their South Surrey property to less fortunate individuals and families for gatherings that offer donated necessities such as food and clothing, not to mention an escape from personal hardships. They are planning on hosting the events every other weekend this summer, and adjusting the schedule based on demand. Judy, an animal lover and foster mom, is also looking to incorporate a no-kill animal shelter into Eversafe Ranch, in which homeless pets can ❝When you’re interact with visiting looked after children and youth while waiting to be matched and you have with new owners. everything you The desire to make need, it’s nice their home available to stems from a need to be able to others to give back, Judy said. give back.❞ “So many people have stepped up and helped Judy Daser us along the way. When you’re looked after, and you have everything you need, it’s nice to be able to give back.” Before meeting, the Dasers had their own struggles – Judy being a single mother of two and Alan a widower who lost his first wife in an accident. “We both had a lot of help from outside people,” Judy explained. The two met through a friend eight years ago, and discovered a shared vision of helping the homeless, low-income families and moms with children who have suffered abuse. They began their efforts by visiting a poor Guildford neighbourhood once a month, when they would hold a free barbecue and set up tables of donated clothes, toys and other items. The Dasers continued their outreach work for two years with the help of other volunteers, serving around 100 people at each visit. By 2008, Eversafe Ranch became a registered charity, and they have since

Through their experience, they noticed a demand for household furniture, Alan said. “We found there was a need for women coming out of shelters.” The Dasers’ furniture deliveries to families in need began with a 1978 Chevy half-ton pickup truck that they stacked precariously high with used goods. (A donation has since allowed them to upgrade to a one-ton truck.) Alan receives referrals from women’s shelters, and drops off pieces to homes for free thanks to tax-deductible donations

from those offloading furniture. Alan – who works full time during the day – makes the deliveries at night, helping an average of four families a week. Last year alone, the service impacted 150 families, mostly in the Surrey area. One of the major obstacles now is space. Alan said he receives more offers of furniture donations than he is able to accept. He would ultimately like to have a warehouse of sorts, where he could create a stockpile of goods and deliver specific pieces as they’re needed. Such an upgrade is just one of the reasons the Dasers are fundraising to buy a

larger property. The two have their eyes set on a 10-acre piece of land on 184 Street, just up the road from their current home. The lot already has a number of outbuildings that could be used for furniture storage, as well as the shelter the two want to open, Doolittles Animal Rescue. With a forested area and a pond – and plenty of room for playground equipment – Judy said it would be an ideal base for Eversafe Ranch. In the future, it could even become a fulltime drop-in centre.  see page 12

Shelter ‘really needed’  from page 11 Alan said the environment could serve as an alternative to community fairs that some families can’t afford to attend. And, the interaction youngsters would get with the adoptable animals – which are to be trained and rehabilitated by qualified volunteers – could be therapeutic for both the child and pet, added Judy. “They have a way of helping each other silently,” she said. Linda Regnier of Atira Women’s Resource Society – where many of the people Eversafe Ranch helps have come from – said some of the children who would benefit from socializing with animals have troubled backgrounds. “It will teach them to have empathy, it will teach them how to feel and get them in touch with the reality of being human,” said Regnier, who manages one of Atira’s transition houses. Having a safe, peaceful place to go will also have an impact on mothers, she noted. “It’s fun for them to forget about their problems and forget about their stress,” she said. “It’s really needed.” The Dasers have a goal to raise $200,000 towards the purchase of the property. To raise money for that, as well as for the launch of Doolittles Animal Rescue, a fundraiser will be held tomorrow (Saturday, May 28) at Elgin Hall, 14250 Crescent Rd. The event will kick off at 4:30 p.m., and include a reception, silent auction, prizes, international buffet dinner and a performance by the Panic Squad improv group. Tickets are $35, adults; $20, children under 12; and $100 for a family of four (two adults and two children). To purchase tickets, call 604-341-1503 or 604-809-3935.

lifestyles Local couple’s foundation to fundraise for youth in disaster-stricken, war-torn areas

Antenna design to aid Japanese students Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

Baby Liam spent three weeks in the neonatal intensive care unit at Surrey Memorial Hospital after being born premature last February. While the experience was a trying one – causing fear and heartbreak for secondtime parents George Tsai and Katy Lee – it would later inspire something great. Shortly after Liam’s health improved and he was brought home, the 9.0-magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami hit Japan. As relief efforts focused on providing basic necessities to the devastated country, Tsai and Lee turned their attention to the futures of affected children and youth. They only had to look at a healthy onemonth-old Liam – and think of their friend in Tokyo whose daughter was born just weeks before the disaster – to know they had to help. “We feel that children and youth, they can’t fend for themselves,” Tsai, 34, said. Along with the help of their Japan-based friend, Hidekuni Amita, the South Surrey couple formed the Future of Tomorrow Foundation to provide scholarships to young survivors of the quake. “The focus would be to find students who have lost their parents, siblings,” Tsai said. “We feel that education for youth is critical. If you give them the right tools, they can flourish in life.” Tsai and Lee, a former teacher, are raising money for students’ entrance fees to Tokyo universities, which typically require between $2,000 and $3,000.

George Tsai – seen here with wife Katy Lee and baby Liam – designed an environmentally friendly HDTV antenna, which he hopes will help raise money to help students in Japan. Funds collected in the next 10 months will form scholarships for those attending post-secondary in April 2012 (when the next school year starts in Japan) with any money brought in after that date used for the following year.

And there are no plans to stop there. Tsai said the foundation’s mission is to aid children and youth in disaster-stricken and war-torn communities around the world, and additional projects will continue to be taken on.

“It’s a long-term commitment,” he said. With a website now up and running, the next step for the non-profit organization is to gain charitable status, so that tax receipts can be issued to donors. And, to further boost its success, Tsai – who has a background in engineering – has given Future of Tomorrow an antenna technology he spent the past year designing. The HDTV antenna is environmentally friendly, with its elements made from recycled aluminum cans. Its frame is made with ❝Education cardboard paper printed for youth is with cherry blossoms, critical.❞ which are considered to George Tsai be Japan’s national flower and symbolize rebirth. The launch of the wall-mounting ecoAntenna comes on the doorstep of this August’s requirement that all TV stations be broadcast in digital frequencies in Canada. Tsai described the product as a digital version of the “rabbit-ear” antenna, and said its use will allow people to watch overthe-air HD programming from local TV broadcasters for free. “A lot of people aren’t aware that this option’s out there,” Tsai said, noting he is working on some other designs, including a collapsible version. All proceeds from each $10 unit will benefit the foundation’s initiatives. For more information, to purchase an antenna or to learn ways to support the foundation – such as donating pop cans or volunteering for antenna construction – visit futureoftomorrow.org

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

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

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

Complaint after suicide attempt

DR. LINDA MULLIGAN COSMETIC AND FAMILY DENTISTRY

Mom blames school

crowns

Sheila Reynolds

This family dental practice welcomes new patients.

Black Press

The mom of a Surrey boy suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) claims the treatment of her son by school secretaries led to his suicide attempt in late 2009. The mother, whose name cannot be published, has filed a complaint with the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal. She claims her son was eight years old when he got into an argument with his school’s office staff about whether he should attend an assembly on Sept. 11, 2009. The dispute escalated and one secretary sat on the boy to restrain him while police were called. According to the complaint, the boy suffers from anxiety and depression as well as PTSD and there was a safety plan at the school that said he should not be touched or chased. The mom says her son, whose name is also banned from publication, “was not supposed to be forced” to attend large functions. He phoned home to tell her about the situation, but was cut off when the mother heard the boy say “back off ” to one of the secretaries. The mom claims she arrived at the school and found her son curled up on the floor with police nearby. The secretaries said he kicked one of them in the leg and that they had to hold him back from fleeing from the office. The mom argues the confrontation caused her son’s mental health to deteriorate. Two months after the incident, she says, he tried to commit suicide. The school district says it only had the child’s safety in mind and because he had a history of running away, they wanted to protect him from harm. The allegations have not been proven and a date has yet to be set for the hearing. - with files from CTV

Feet identified Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Two feet that washed ashore on two separate B.C. islands three years ago have been identified as belonging to a Surrey resident. The two feet, found inside size 11 Nike running shoes, were discovered on Valdez Island and Westham Island on Feb. 8, and June 16, 2008, respectively. After an analysis by the Coroners Service of B.C., the feet were identified as belonging to a 21-year-old Surrey resident, who was reported missing in January 2004. The coroner is not revealing the ethnicity or discussing the cause of death, but did say foul play has been ruled out. The coroners service says it determined the

feet were removed by the natural processes that occur in a marine environment. The coroners service worked with the RCMP and the Delta Police Department, as well as other municipal detachments, which forwarded missing persons cases. A DNA match was then made with the person reported missing from Surrey in January, 2004. It’s believed that was the month the man died. Seven feet belonging to five individuals were discovered between August 2007 and October 2009. The coroners service has positively identified four as belonging to three individuals. To date, no evidence indicates any of the deaths are suspicious.

Car-theft suspect in custody The only female cartheft suspect on B.C.’s ‘top 10 most wanted’ list is now in police custody. Stephanie Rene Deschene had been featured in late March as the sole woman on the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team’s ‘most wanted’ list, and had been at-large ever since. That came to an

end last week, when she was arrested in Langley. Police allege Deschene broke into a home in the Cloverdale area May 19, then stole the homeowners’ minivan when they returned home. When Deschene stopped to let her dog out of the vehicle in a Langley park, she was arrested. - Black Press

B.C. to restrict ferry increases Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – BC Ferries fare increases will be limited to 4.15 per cent on all routes for 2012-13, according to legislation introduced Tuesday by the B.C. government. A preliminary ruling by the BC Ferry Commissioner this spring indicated fares could rise by more than eight per cent on smaller and northern ferry routes next spring. The legislation caps increases on all routes to the limit that was set for major routes serving Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast. Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom said the rate cap gives the new BC Ferry Commissioner time to complete a review of the Coastal Ferry Act before he makes a final decision on rate caps. Gord Macatee, the longtime civil servant who took over as BC Ferry Commissioner this year, expects to complete his review and make recommendations to the government by early 2012. NDP ferries critic Garry Coons called the rate cap for next year “insignificant” after years of increases that have fallen more heavily on the smaller routes.

The BC Liberal government’s mandate for ferries has resulted in the doubling of some fares in the last eight years, he said, and now Premier Christy Clark is considering a possible fall election. “It seems to be an easy out for the minister and this government to roll this off until after the election,” Coons said. “And then knowing what they’ve been doing and how they’ve been operating with BC Ferries, they’ll jack up the fares after that.” The Coastal Ferry Act currently requires BC Ferries to reduce the subsidy paid to keep smaller ferry routes running, and prevents BC Ferries from using revenue from its large, busy routes to support service to smaller islands and communities. Lekstrom has said the ferry rate review will focus on affordability for ferry users and the impact of rates on tourism and other business in ferry-dependent communities. The review will not affect the next increase, which takes effect June 1. A fuel surcharge of 2.5 per cent is being added on the three major routes serving Vancouver Island, and the rest of the routes will see a five per cent fuel surcharge.

EXPANDED SERVICES IMPROVE RECOVERY AND QUALITY OF LIFE FOR HEART AND LUNG PATIENTS “The goal is to give patients the tools needed to control their health, so it doesn’t control them.” - Claire Prentice, Nurse Coordinator, Cardiac Programs, Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre

PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE Get a sneak peek inside the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre, located at the corner of 140th Street and Fraser Highway in Surrey, by joining us at our public open house Monday, May 30 from 3pm – 7pm. For more details go to www.fraserhealth.ca Individuals with heart and lung conditions will find support and resources to help them enjoy life again, starting June 7 at the new Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre. The new Outpatient Centre will offer increased access to rehabilitation, education, exercise, diagnostic and other services through specialized heart and lung clinics and other programs to assist patients in better management of chronic health conditions. Returning to a Healthy Heart Patients who have experienced a heart attack can get back on the road to recovery through the Cardiac Rehabilitation and Prevention Program, which is expanding with its move to the Pattison Outpatient Centre from Surrey Memorial Hospital. The program focuses on education, counselling, peer support, stress management and exercise. Services include a nine-week education series offered in English and Punjabi. An expanded exercise program with heart monitoring is also available to patients referred by a physician. “We empower patients to manage their chronic disease through lifestyle choices. The program enhances their knowledge and boosts their confidence,” said Claire Prentice, nurse coordinator for the heart programs. “The goal is to give patients the tools needed to control their health, so it doesn’t control them.”

Patients who’ve had a recent cardiac event will be referred to the rehab program from surrounding hospitals. Many referrals will also come from the on-site Heart Health Clinic, which is doubling its capacity from its former space at Surrey Memorial Hospital. The Heart Health Clinic is made up of a multi-disciplinary team including a cardiologist, nurse – and now a dietician and pharmacist – that will diagnose patients and help them manage their heart failure condition. The team will assist patients with medication, self management of lifestyle changes and emotional support for patients and their families. Within the Fraser Health region, the Heart Health Clinic will be one of three regional centres for complex heart failure care. Better Management of Lung Conditions Patients with diagnosed and stable chronic lung disease (such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) can be referred by their family physician to the Lung Rehabilitation Program, where a six-week lecture series teaches patients how to manage their condition. A companion exercise program helps patients gain stamina and develop a fitness regime. “The focus is to help people manage their disease to prevent flare-ups, and learn how to manage the flare-ups that do occur so they can avoid the emergency room,” said Jessica Erzinger, a respiratory therapist and clinical supervisor for the lung programs at the Pattison Outpatient Centre.

“It’s about improving quality of life for people. Folks who couldn’t take their grandkids to the zoo are now able to do that. People who couldn’t take their dog around the block are now going for walks. Some people who have gone through our program have even started dancing again!” The rehab program, which is also doubling its capacity in the new space at the Pattison Outpatient Centre, is part of a trio of lung services that patients can be referred to by their physician. This includes a lung diagnostic program (the largest in Fraser Health) as well as an expanded Lung Health Clinic, where a respirologist and respiratory therapist will provide diagnosis, management support and referrals for suspected or complex cases. Seamless Care Because the Pattison Outpatient Centre brings together a wide variety of disciplines, lung and heart patients will be able to address other health concerns – such as mobility, diabetes, mental health or other issues – in the same place, and often during the same visit. If you or a family member could benefit from the lung or heart programs at the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre please talk to your family physician. For more information call the Heart Health programs at 604-582-4584, the Lung Health programs at 604-582-4565 or email feedback@fraserhealth.ca.

Semiahmoo Strings tackling Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, with help of alumni, professionals

Ensemble preps for ‘epic’ performance Alex Browne

A

Arts Reporter

s the saying goes, be very careful what you wish for – you just might get it. The notion of a Semiahmoo Strings Youth Orchestra performance of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, with a full complement of professional brass and woodwinds, may have started in jest, as their instructors and ensemble co-directors Carla and Harold Birston confess. But it will be a stunning reality next Tuesday and Wednesday (May 31, June 1) at 7:30 p.m. at the Wheelhouse Theatre at Earl Marriott Secondary (15751 16 Ave.). Not just a valedictory showcase for a crop of graduating musicians (Semiahmoo Strings members usually stay only up to Grade 12), it will also ❝We’d joke about bring back alumni doing it, but we Emily Akita and Andrew Ty (class of never thought it 1996), Anne Davison would happen.❞ and Gillian Mott (1998), Vicky Yang Carla Birston ensemble co-director (2002), Kristina Jessen (2003), Julia Szilagyi-Fife (2004), Paul Luongo (2007), Elise McIntosh (2009), David Liu and Emily Hopkins (2010). Some 20 top-flight professional players will round out the sound for the Beethoven symphony, and other pieces requiring full orchestra, while the concert will also spotlight student soloists Lucy Wang (violin) in Sarasate’s Zigeunerweisen, Op. 20; Roland Gjernes (cello) in Elgar’s Cello Concerto in E Minor and Holly Wacker (violin) in Glazunov’s Meditation, Op. 32, in a special arrangement by Harold Birston. The “farm team” Demi-Semiahmoo Strings will also have their chance to shine – and, in all, there will be as many as 60 musicians on stage at one time during the Beethoven symphony and some of the other pieces. “For us, that’s epic,” said Harold. “I might have to use a podium for the first time to conduct from – and if we could get the winds and horns on risers that would be good,” Carla said. Both the Birstons seemed remarkably relaxed about the concert while chatting over cups of tea and coffee (but not the 60-bean brew that Beethoven is said to have favoured, which may explain the particularly energetic nature of his composition). If they feel confident about the upcoming concert, they said, it’s because it been driven by the enthusiasm and ambition of the studentss, all of whom have hurled themselves into preparation and rehearsal and now know all of the nuances of the

the students brought to their first rehearsal with the professional musicians. “I think they (the professionals) were expecting a lot of stopping and starting, but the kids were giving 100 per cent, and because of that the winds and brasses could play at full volume.” Well known – and celebrated – locally for setting the bar high for their students, the

Birstons have seen it work as year after year on neophyte violinists and cellists who have observed the example of senior students and have stepped up to the challenge. Concertmaster Keira Raymond – at age 15 confidently meeting the rigors of cuing and supervising tuning for both students, alumni and professionals alike – is just one case in point. The Birstons also have high praise for their student soloists. “Roland is meeting the artistic demands of the Elgar concerto and also the emotional demands of it – he’s doing a beautiful interpretation of it,” Harold said, adding the cellist is well-placed for a future in music. “Doors are opening for him in terms of grants and educational opportunities – and he’s making them open.” “And Lucy is a technical wizard – she’s absolutely tremendous, with an unbelievable virtuosity and sensitivity to go with it.” Wacker, they add, brings a wonderful touch to the melodic qualities of Glazunov, they said – her short piece, originally arranged for a private performance by the orchestra, won its place on the program on the strength of it. “Holly’s been studying with me for 12 years and she seems to have a real knack for playing these gentle, sensitive pieces,” Carla said. Playing Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony was not a serious plan at first. “We’d joke about doing it, but we never thought it would happen,” Carla said.  see page 28

Famous piece ‘thrilling’ to play  from page 27 “We have a big graduating class this year, a very strong class, and we used to say ‘the year you graduate, we’re doing Beethoven’s Fifth.’ But as we got closer to it, it seemed more and more do-able.” The piece is, of course, renowned for possibly the most famous opening measures in the classical repertoire (with the fanfare from Richard Strauss’ Also Sprach Zarathustra a close second) – and conducting that ‘bahbah-bah bah’ opening is daunting, and technically challenging, Carla admits. But, oddly, the rest of it has been largely a breeze – possibly because it is so familiar to her. “I’ve loved the piece since I was 12 years old – but I didn’t know how well I knew it,” she said. The opening Allegro con Brio may be the most famous of the

movements, they added, but all four are equally “sublime,” building to the exhilarating conclusion of the Allegro ma non troppo. “I love his ability to build suspense in the movements, and the fugue in the third movement is one of the most thrilling passages for string players,” Carla said. Harold said he’s consistently amazed by the “sheer physicality” of Beethoven’s writing. “And so much of it is at the ‘frog’ of the bow, where string players have to work so much harder,” Carla said, noting this has diminished the young musicians’ enthusiasm not one whit. “There’ll be more than a few cases of tendonitis after Wednesday night,” she laughed.

Get your movie on the big screen The Surrey Film Festival is fastapproaching and submissions are now being accepted from all over the Lower Mainland and North America for the fifthannual event. This year, instead of just high school students, entries are being welcomed from post-secondary students, who will compete in their own category. “Last year, we had our biggest festival yet,” says director Glen Chua. “And this year, we’re expecting even bigger and better things.” Chua and Tim Reyes, longtime passionate filmmakers, created the festival in 2007 and plan to eventually expand it into the Surrey International Film Festival. There are six categories students may enter: short films, public service announcements, sports interest videos, animation, screenwriting and postsecondary. The top films in each category will be invited to the awards gala at the Surrey Arts Centre on June 24 at 7 p.m. for a walk on the red carpet, including paparazzi.

The best films will be screened and students are eligible to win thousands of dollars worth of prizes. All the top films are also guaranteed a screening at the Emerging Filmmakers Forum in Beverly Hills, sponsored by Lightyear Digital – a prize considered priceless to any young filmmaker. The Best of Surrey trophy will also be awarded to the top Surrey High School Film, and the names of the filmmakers and school are engraved on a trophy. Tamanawis Secondary won this award in 2007, Kwantlen Park followed in 2008, Fleetwood Park Secondary in 2009 and Earl Marriott in 2010. “This film festival was created to help inspire students who have a passion for storytelling and film production,” says Chua. “It really is a celebration of the students’ work, and it’s like Oscar night for high schools in the Lower Mainland.” The deadline to submit films is June 10 and the entry fee is $10. Submission forms and entry guidelines can be found at www. surreyfilmfest.ca.

Teens’ film honoured Four White Rock Elementary alumni received special recognition for their movie-making efforts at a recent Vancouver film festival. Ashley Elliot-Orsetti, Julia Bicknell, Liam Johnson and Taylor Snider were honoured for outstanding achievement in early teen filmmaking at the EyeLens Film Festival May 14 at Vancouver’s Rio Theatre. The award recognizes their short video Rob Or Be Robbed, produced last year at Gulf Islands Film and Television School (GIFTS), in a special program for Grade 7 White Rock Elementary students. The comedy tells the story of a couple who resort to robbery to relieve their financial woes. The video is among 2,100 from GIFTS that can be viewed on YouTube.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Earl Marriott snags Fraser Valley banner

Lifters eye worlds

Grade 8s win title

Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

It won’t exactly be springtime in Paris when Katelynn Williams and Christine Girard head to the city of lights in November, but they may not have much time for sightseeing, anyhow. That’s because the pair of Semi Weightlifting Club members will be focused on a more important task – winning a medal at World Weightlifting Championships. The duo qualified for world championships last weekend, at national championships in Scarborough, Ont. Williams – whom Semi coach Dieter Stamm called “a real dark horse” heading into the competition – captured gold in the women’s 75-kg class, lifting a combined 209 kg in clean-and-jerk and snatch. Her total score was seven kilograms better than Yukon’s Jeanne Lassen, a Canadian Olympian who competed at the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing. In third place was another lifter with plenty of international experience, Ontario’s Kara Doherty, who now live and trains in the United States. “Katelynn was up against some very good competition,” Stamm said. “But she did just a super, bang-up job. Amazing.” Joining Williams on the podium was Girard, a former Olympian herself. Competing in the women’s 63-kg division, she outlifted the competition by a considerable margin – her total score of 222 kg was 52 kg better than second-place lifter Kristel Ngarlem. “Pretty impressive to win by that much,” Stamm said. “She won quite handily.” Williams and Girard will spend the summer preparing for worlds, slated for Paris in November. Stamm is confident both have a chance to make the podium. Girard is already one of the world’s elite female lifters – she finished fourth at the Beijing Olympics and won a gold medal at last year’s Commonwealth Games – but Stamm said Williams, too, is making big strides. “She has an excellent chance at worlds. She did well last weekend – very well – but I don’t think that was her at her best yet,” the longtime weightlifting coach said. “She still has more to give.” A day prior to the women’s competition, the men took centre stage at nationals. Semi lifter Geoffrey Yee fared best, winning bronze in the 105-kg class. Walter Bailey finished fifth in the 85-kg class while Justin Ott was sixth in the 94-kg division.

Earl Marriott’s Liam Morrison is sandwiched between a pair of Banting Middle School defenders during Tuesday’s Grade 8 boys Fraser Valley championship game. EMS won the contest, 12-7.

Less than a week after the Earl Marriott Mariners’ senior boys rugby team captured a Fraser Valley championship, the school’s Grade 8 squad repeated the feat, defeating Coquitlam’s Banting Middle School 12-7 Tuesday at South Surrey Athletic Park. Wing Cole Plotnikoff and scrum-half Logan Smith each scored tries for EMS, while Liam Morrison added a convert. The win capped an impressive season for the young Mariners squad, in which they went undefeated; they were 15-0 prior to the Valley final, winning most games in convincing fashion. In fact, the team had become so used to one-sided victories, Mariners coach Peter Johnston – also the principal at EMS – wondered at times how his team would react to a close, back-andforth tilt. “It was a really good test for both sides. We played really well and the boys were finally challenged,” Johnston said. “But to their credit, they really rose to the occasion.” Such resilience was evident in the game’s waning moments, when the Mariners – with their senior boys teammates and members of Semiahmoo’s Grade 8 team watching from the sidelines – needed to hold the goal line to prevent a late game-tying score by Banting. “Banting really came on strong in the last part of the game, and they were on our goal line right until the end, but we were able to hold them off and hold them off,” Johnston said. “Then we were able to get the ball and kick it out of bounds, and then the final whistle blew. “The boys were really thrilled. I was surprised, actually, how excited they were to win this one.” Though he only used 16 players in Tuesday’s victory, Johnston credited his team’s depth for its undefeated run through the Fraser Valley circuit.  see page 32

 from page 31 “We have a lot of players – we have two Grade 8 teams – and usually we’re able to get everybody in the game, and everybody contributes,� he said. Johnston gave much of the credit for Marriott’s two Fraser Valley titles – the seniors beat Yale May 19 – to senior boys coach Adam Roberts, who is the school’s rugby program co-ordinator. “He’s just done a

fantastic job with the program, and we have more players and more teams than we’ve ever had – we’re one of the biggest programs in the country,� said Johnston, who coached the senior boys himself in the mid-1990s. “Semiahmoo has always been the dominant team when it comes to rugby, even going back to when I was a teacher and coach here, but the last few years, the tide seems to be turning a little bit.�

Barker inks scholarship Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

On Thursday, when White Rock Christian Academy’s Carly Barker officially signed a letter of intent to play volleyball next season at Warner Pacific, the only people happier than her were likely her parents. And that’s not just because Tim and Nancy Barker were proud of their daughter – though they certainly are – but because they’ll soon be able to visit two of their children on one trip. The Barkers’ oldest child, Riley, just finished his first year studying and playing basketball at the University of Portland, which is just 20 minutes from Warner Pacific, a small college that plays in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). A third Barker, 16-year-old Corey, attends WRCA. “That’s a big reason why I picked Warner – because Portland is where my brother plays,” Carly said Wednesday at WRCA, where she’s wrapping up her senior year. “I really liked the fact that it was a small school, a small community, and the team seems really great.” During a visit to the school, her soon-to-be teammates also helped convince her to sign

White Rock Christian Academy’s Carly Barker will play college volleyball next year in the NAIA. with Warner by using a slightly unorthodox recruitment method – they bought her doughnuts. “Voodoo Donuts is a really famous doughnut shop downtown – people line up around the block for them – and they brought me there,” Carly laughed. Though Barker, a five-foot-11 left-hander who plays right-side

on the volleyball court, toyed with the idea of staying north of the border, she narrowed her focus quickly. “Once I found the school, I really didn’t look up here much,” said Carly, who verbally committed to the Warner Pacific Knights in February and plans to study psychology. “It’s nice to be able to be in Portland, with

Davis named to junior team After impressing team brass at a fiveday tryout camp earlier this month in Quebec, Semiahmoo Totem alum Alex Davis has been named to Canada’s junior national volleyball team. The White Rock native, in his third year at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, will don the Maple Leaf at 2011 Junior World Champinships, scheduled for Aug. 1-10 in Brazil. “I’m very happy to be selected to play for the junior national team,” Davis, who plays middle, said in a release. “This has been the highlight of my volleyball career thus far… I can’t wait to represent my country.”

Riley. We’re very close – he’s one of my best friends, and he’s really happy I’m coming.” Riley’s basketball season and Carly’s volleyball schedules don’t overlap, either, giving the siblings plenty of opportunities to cheer each other on. “I know the city pretty well – and I already know how to get from my school to his,” Carly said. Signing her letter of intent is the capper on an impressive volleyball career at WRCA, where she’s played on the senior squad the last three seasons. “Carly’s really been the backbone of our team. We really rely on her to score points for us, and she’s going to be hard to replace,” said WRCA coach Kelli Niemi. This year, Barker led her team to a fifth-place showing at provincials – she was named a second-team all-star – while also helping WRCA capture its first Fraser Valley volleyball banner in seven years. She was named MVP of the Valley tournament. “That one was very exciting for us,” she said. “We hadn’t had a new banner up there for a while – and there’s enough basketball ones – so we needed some new volleyball ones to hang up there.”

WILLIAMS, Meta Idella (nee SCOTT) December 31, 1912 – May 20, 2011 Meta passed away peacefully at Weatherby Pavilion in White Rock. Meta had a long and very active life and was always providing an aura of fun with her smiles and quick wit. Meta was an avid athlete and was inducted into the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame as a Pirate Lacrosse player and was a champion downhill and slalom skier during 1936–1941. Meta was born in Weyburn, Saskatchewan, and moved to Vancouver in 1923 where she lived until 1946. Meta then moved to North Burnaby and this was her community until 2005 in which she was very active at the Cameron Centre. She then relocated to Crescent Gardens in White Rock. Meta is predeceased by her parents, Ralph and Anne Idella Scott, her siblings Hugh Scott and Myra French, her first husband Louis Harrington and her second husband Ivor Williams. Meta is survived by her stepchildren Bernice (John Dewick), Les Williams, and Trudie (Doug Pierce), eight grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren, her nephew Don French and his family, and many cousins. A Family Service will be held on Saturday, May 28th, 2011 at 10:00am at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre 14831-28 Avenue Surrey (King George Blvd). For service details or to leave condolences, please visit www.victoryfuneralcentre.ca Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre 604-536-6522 www.victoryfuneralcentre.ca

LAURSEN, Marilyn 1955-2011 was taken from us suddenly on Wednesday, May 18th in White Rock. Predeceased by her father, Victor Cecil, in 2006. Survived by her mother, Mildred, daughter, Angela (Arthur), brother, Don (Laverne), sisters, Lynné (Neale) and Cheryl (Gordon) and brother Christian (Irma); nieces and nephews, Richard (Karen), Stuart (Kelli), Patrick, Adam (Marsha), Travis (Mary), Derek, and their children. She is also survived by Ron (Janet) Halicki and family. And of course her cat-roommates Ebony and Velvet. It is impossible to put into words how vibrant and full of life Marilyn is. Her energy is electric, as everyone who knows her is fortunate to have experienced. No one lights up a room quite like Marilyn. She has an immense passion for her work and is mourned not just by her employer MHL Transport but by the entire transportation/logistics industry. Her love for shoes - on her feet or ornamental - is evident the moment she walks into your life. Her hobbies are endless and everchanging. She’s a gardener, a golfer, a fisher, a quilter, a knitter, a bird watcher, and even a painter. Recently she had even become a gourmet cook. Marilyn is an avid beachcomber, collecting beach glass from as close to home as the Pacific Ocean, and as far away as the point where the Indian and Southern Oceans meet. We will remember her as more than just Marilyn. She is our “Bee-bop”, our “Sprout” and our beautiful “Marigold”. Forever in our hearts Marilyn, daughter, sister, Mom, friend. A Celebration Of Life will be held Monday, May 30th, 2011 at 2:00pm at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831 28th Avenue, Surrey. Please make a donation in Marilyn’s name to Riefel Bird Sanctuary, 5191 Robertson Rd, Delta, BC V4K 3N2 or charity of your choice.

A devoted and loving wife, mom, grandma, great-grandma and friend, Merle, with her beautiful Soprano voice, enjoyed being a member of the Maple Leaf Singers for over 23 years.

TAYLOR, Mike. Surrounded by family, Mike passed away May 20, 2011 at Peace Arch Hospital, leaving a huge hole in many hearts.

We would like to thank Dr. Andre Bredenkamp and his office staff for their caring, kindness and exceptional care. We would also like to thank all the Peace Arch Hospital Emergency staff and the 6th Floor North nursing staff and the Sanctuary in Hospice Care. You are angels living on earth and each and every one of you made a difference in Karen’s last days.

Mike was born in Dauphin Manitoba February 21, 1965 and grew up in Westbank B.C, graduating from Mt. Boucherie High School in 1983. He moved to the lower mainland to start a career in the film industry & resided in S. Surrey.

A memorial service will be held at Sunnyside United Church (15639-24th Avenue, Surrey BC) Friday May 27th, 2011 at 1:00 PM. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to either the Peace Arch Hospice Society or the Ovarian Cancer Society.

Survived by his parents, Bob and Lorraine Taylor, daughters, Nathalie and Madeline, his partner Lisa and her children Noah and Jenna, brother Rob (Eileen), sisters, Cindy and Janis, much extended family, countless friends and many colleagues in the television industry.

Mike will be remembered by many through his intense love of music and his ability to connect with people. Our lives are so much richer, having been touched by him. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations can be made to the White Rock Hospice Society through which Mike received much support. A celebration of his life will be held at his home on Saturday June 4th from 2-5pm. “For I must love because I live And life in me is what you give.” C. Brennan
