20-storey rappel ‘fun’

White Rock looks at funding

MLA drops for a cause

$4/hour parking perused

MLA Stephanie Cadieux started the workday Tuesday in Downtown Vancouver by rappelling down the side of a 20-storey building. She was atop AXA Place, 999 W. Hastings St., shortly after 8 a.m. Sept. 14 to take the plunge as a participant in the fifth annual Easter Seals Drop Zone. “It certainly was a long way up,” Cadieux told Peace Arch News after touching ground. “It’s a neat view from up there.” Cadieux (Surrey-Panorama) said she was harnessed to her wheelchair and attached to the rope she used to rappel herself down the building. As she lowered, Cadieux said, she received curious glances from office workers on the other side of the building’s windows. “It was really fun,” she said of the 15-minute rappel. “I’d recommend people give it a shot.” Cadieux – who has lived with a spinal cord injury since a car crash when she was 18 – raised $2,500 for the event, which benefits children and families staying at the three Easter Seals Houses in Vancouver, Prince George and Victoria, while obtaining medical treatment. Funds raised through the Drop Zone – which is produced by the B.C. Lions Society for Children with Disabilities – will also support summer camps for children with disabilities. “It’s all about helping kids be kids and helping families stay together through tough times, and about helping kids (at the camps) test their limits and have some fun at the same time.”

Another boost to parking rates along White Rock’s waterfront is being considered. And while councillors who discussed the suggestion at the city’s last economic committee meeting June 17 insist there are no plans at this time to actually recommend increasing the rate, at least one says ❝I have no a jump is a very real possibility in the future – but doubt at all our only to ensure costs associ- pay parking ated with the land lease and maintenance are covered. could go to $4.❞ “Any increase in pay park- Coun. Al Campbell ing would be for that purpose,” said Coun. Al Campbell, who chaired the meeting. “I have no doubt at all our pay parking could go to $4.” According to minutes of the meeting posted Friday, the suggestion came during discussion of a comprehensive Parking Business Plan for the city – one of council’s goals for 2010. Other points made include a suggestion for pay parking to be established along Johnston � see page 4

A Canadian border guard accused of illegally strip searching four female travellers at the Douglas border denies any incidents occurred. Lawyer Joe McCarthy, who is defending Daniel Greenhalgh on charges of sexual assault and breach of trust, said Monday his client will “be offering a vigorous defence” to the charges. “They never happened,” McCarthy said outside B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. Greenhalgh is charged in connection with incidents alleged to have taken place in and around the Douglas (Peace Arch) border crossing on April 13 and 15 and May 26, 2007.

Some want water rebate Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

After White Rock’s water was given the allclear two weeks ago, some residents are asking why they are having to pay Epcor for the 11 days they couldn’t drink the wet stuff. “It’s not the amount, it’s the principle,” said Robert Oranje, who contacted Peace Arch News last week after receiving his latest bill from the utility. “When you go to a restaurant and the food is not good… they deduct the money for it. I don’t think it’s fair that people who live in White Rock have to pay the full amount of money (for the boil-water advisory period).” The discovery of E. coli in the city’s drinking water prompted Fraser Health to issue a boilwater advisory Aug. 20. It was lifted Sept. 1. But Epcor spokesperson Tim le Riche said Friday that a break on the rate for the term of the advisory is not the utility’s responsibility. Under the terms and conditions of Water Tariff No. 1, Epcor is not required to compensate for expenses associated with a boil-water advisory, nor is it required to adjust bills as a result of one, he said. “Tariff No. 1… basically says we’re not responsible,” le Riche said. “The Tariff says

that a continuous supply of water is not guaranteed, and in this instance, water was available even though it had to be boiled.” Le Riche said he is not aware of many complaints regarding billing for the advisory period. Those who feel they have a claim that falls outside of the Tariff can submit it to Crawford Adjustors, he added, pointing to Epcor’s website for further information. Oranje described that response as a brushoff. “I think they have to be accountable,” he said. Mayor Catherine Ferguson said she believes the utility should at least take the idea of refunds for that period under consideration – since people are asking. Ferguson, noting she is “remaining openminded” on the issue, said the city can’t tell Epcor how to handle the request. She added she is unaware of any community receiving refunds as a result of a boil-water advisory. Work to upgrade the water reservoirs is hoped to get underway this week, le Riche said. He added it is too early to estimate Epcor’s cost of the cleanup. “We’re just pleased that we were able to resolve it and now we’re moving on,” he said.

Developer considers options as neighbours welcome decision

ALC rejects South Surrey compost facility Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

The Agricultural Land Commission has denied Pilot Grove Farms’ application to seek a non-farm use permit for a proposed composting plant in South Surrey. “Obviously, it was not the decision we were hoping for,” developer spokesperson Lindi Liebrandt said. “We’re going to take some time and study the ruling and consider our options.” On the other hand, opponents are calling the decision a wise one.

“Allowing this type of composting facility on prime agricultural land in the ALR (Agricultural Land Reserve) would have had province-wide implications,” said Terry McNeice, representing the South Surrey Ratepayers Association and Hazelmere Residents Association, via email. “I would guess that the (ALC) doesn’t want to set a precedent for this type of industrial use.” According to a Pilot Grove Farms release, its proposal for two lots totalling 25 acres in the Agricultural Land Reserve (17690 and 17720 12 Ave.) would include an enclosed

composting facility that converts green trimmings, organics and some agricultural manure from surrounding areas into “Class A” compost product. Pilot Grove Farms would use the product for its own farming needs, the release states, as well as provide additional product to neighbours, other farms and the community. “The permit would have allowed for more than 50 per cent of that newly created, extra compost product to leave the farm site,” the release states. “This was not a question of,

‘Can you produce compost on ALR land?’ It is a question of how much compost can leave the farm.” Area residents have voiced concern over negative impacts the development could have on the environment, highway safety, preservation of farmland and quality of life. Pilot Grove Farms says the proposal addresses and supports sustainability, increasing local food security and diversion of organics from landfills or incinerators. The ALC did not return calls by Peace Arch News’ deadline.

Reprieve for seized pets

Stabbing trial

Staff Reporter

Two pets left to fend for themselves on a vacated White Rock property now have brighter futures. Since Peace Arch News reported last week of a rabbit caged beneath the porch of a vacant Buena Vista Avenue home and a dog seized after he was left to wander loose, bunny Bentley has found a home and there are no plans for Mustang to be euthanized. A PAN reader who saw the Sept. 10 article picked up Bentley from the White Rock house that morning. “My kids are thrilled because our little rabbit died a year or two ago,” she said. “Our cage had been sitting empty for quite a while.” The rabbit now lives in an outdoor enclosure on her South Surrey farm, where she said he is on a diet of pellets, fruit and vegetables. “He’s got it pretty great,” she said. “We’re thrilled and we think that Bentley will be thrilled to be here also.” As for Mustang – who was captured by White Rock bylaw officers two weeks ago, following a report of a dog running at large – he in the process of finding a new home. “We can, according to our bylaws, euthanize the dog after 10 days if the owner hasn’t shown up,” White Rock bylaw site supervisor BJ Wyman said Monday. “The 10-day impound is up today. We could actually destroy the dog today but there’s no way I’m going to and I’ve told the bosses there’s no way I’m going to destroy this animal. “What we’d rather do is have someone else have the dog.” While Wyman said he hasn’t heard from the former owner, he has received a call from a White Rock woman interested in adopting Mustang, and another Peninsula resident – professional dog trainer Sarah Cole – has offered free obedience lessons for the dog and his new owner. Bentley and Mustang previously lived on a property in the 14900block of Buena Vista Avenue, where police seized 350 pot plants

A preliminary inquiry into a latenight stabbing in White Rock last spring is to get underway Dec. 12, 2011 in Surrey Provincial Court. The date was set during a Sept. 9 appearance. The inquiry is to determine if there is enough evidence to take the matter to trial. A White Rock resident is accused of attempted murder in connection with the May 1 incident, which took place at a home in the 15800-block of Goggs Avenue around 10:30 p.m. peacearchnews.com Police, fire and ambulance crews attended the home after the victim alerted a family member to his injuries. A 50-year-old man underwent surgery for life-threatening wounds to his back and abdomen. Two people were arrested – one, a woman, was released without charges; the other, 46-year-old Bradley Wade Charters, was released from custody six days later, on conditions including no-contact orders and to not possess any weapons. – Tracy Holmes

I’m not thinking in a timeline because I don’t want to think of the end of the timeline. “I think this is a beautiful dog, I think it’s worth saving, I think it’s worth training... and that’s my focus.” Mustang’s new owner would have to take precautions, Wyman said, such as muzzling him in public and keeping him in a large, caged enclosure when at home. He also said it is preferable that Mustang’s new owners not have other animals or small children. “Whoever adopts this dog has to be fairly cognizant of the fact this is still a vicious dog in our books.” Wyman said he has looked into other options for Mustang – such as organizations that find homes for pit bulls – but has so far hit dead ends. “It’s very, very hard once a dog has been deemed vicious, fairly or unfairly, for anyone to take the animal.”

notes

Passmore steps down

An outspoken advocate for food security has resigned her post as campaign director for the Farmland Defence League of B.C. In her resignation letter last week, White Rock’s Donna Passmore cites lost confidence in FDL’s ability to make an impact, continued loss of B.C. foodlands despite efforts and a lack of focus on the real problem – “rampant interference by the (Gordon) Campbell government in the decision-making of the Agricultural Land Commission” – as among reasons for her decision. Word last month that the ALC approved the Lougheed Connector through prime Maple Ridge farmland further cemented the decision, Passmore writes. “The Agricultural Land Commission has become nothing more than a publicrelations vehicle for the Campbell government, creating the illusion of a gatekeeper for B.C.’s foodlands, when in fact there is none. “By urging the residents of British Columbia to participate over and over and over again in an advocacy function that will never have any real impact, the Farmland Defence League is contributing to the illusion.”

Pay-parking discussion ‘preliminary’ � from page 1 Road to discourage staff parking; the need for alternative staff parking; realigning parking from parallel to angle to increase space; reducing winter parking rates; offering parking decals to nonresidents, non-resident business owners and day passes for contractors working in the area; and competition for parking in the west beach area. There’s also an interest in finding a way to subsidize rates around Peace Arch Hospital, Campbell said. Regarding boosting waterfront rates, the minutes note the lack of the parking machines’ ability to give change as one reasoning; the possibility to use the added rev-

enue as an incentive for business improvements is another. Coun. Lynne Sinclair described the suggestion as “really preliminary… It really just came out of a discussion. It really was a question to the BIA (Business Improvement Association), to ask them how they feel.” City manager Peggy Clark said it came up as committee members “tossed around some thoughts.” “That was probably just one person’s comment,” she said. Parking rates on the waterfront increased by $1 (to $3) per hour earlier this year; and from $2 to $2.50 per hour around Peace Arch Hospital. The increase was attributed to impact of both the 12 per cent harmonized sales

tax and a jump in the TransLink parking sales tax. The combination of the two was expected to cause a $250,000 shortfall in city revenues, with the increase estimated to offset the burden to taxpayers by $100,000. Financial services director Sandra Kurylo Tuesday described discussions as “really, really preliminary brainstorming.” While pay parking has historically been a hot issue for residents and merchants, Campbell said he has no qualms with it. “I see no shame whatsoever here in pay parking,” he said, noting White Rock’s rates are among the cheapest he’s aware of. “When the sun shines, our parking lots are full.”

‘Humiliating’ searches: prosecutor � from page 1 Christina Godlewska told jurors three women will testify that Greenhalgh sexually touched them during “humiliating, illegal” strip searches that were conducted in the handicapped stall of a men’s public washroom, as well as in a fenced-off area out-

side of the customs building. Greenhalgh, who had been a border guard for about two years at the time, “touched their breasts and pubic region as they stood in their underwear,” Godlewska told the jury. A fourth woman will tell how she was told to remove her shirt

and bra, face Greenhalgh topless, lift her breasts for him to see underneath and pull her pants down, Godlewska said. Outside court, accompanied by his father, the tall, dark-haired Greenhalgh declined comment, but he “denies that any such events took place,” McCarthy said.

Majority vote would repeal HST Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – The petition to scrap the harmonized sales tax will be put to a referendum on Sept. 24, 2011, with a simple majority of votes to decide its fate. The legislative committee voted unanimously for the referendum option Monday afternoon. It was the only choice left to them after the B.C. Liberal majority voted down an NDP motion to take the issue back to the legislature this fall. After the committee decision, Premier Gordon Campbell announced in Vancouver that if more than 50 per cent of those who vote in the referendum want the tax repealed, the government would voluntarily abide by their wishes. That’s a lower threshold than the initiative law, which requires approval by 50 per cent of all voters on the 2009 list and also a majority in 60 per cent of constituencies. Fight HST petition organizers Bill Vander Zalm and Chris Delaney abruptly left the public gallery before the committee vote. Delaney said outside the legislature committee room that once Boundary-Similkameen MLA John Slater confirmed that he would continue to support the government, the outcome was obvious.

“He must reconvene the legislature and amend the Initiative Act to allow for a truly democratic referendum that is binding and requires a single majority vote, since the current legislation does not allow for that,” Vander Zalm said.

The law does not describe whether the referendum should be a mail-in ballot that would cost an estimated $12 million, or an election-style personal ballot that would cost $30 million to organize.

Annual run honours Fox’s fighting spirit

T

his year’s Terry Fox Run is the 30th installment of the world’s most powerful fundraiser for cancer research. Fox runs worldwide, now held in 30 countries, have raised in excess of $500 million. That speaks to the fact that Fox’s story, his fight against cancer and his refusal to let a physical disability slow him down, strikes a chord in all of us. His 143-day journey, running step-hop-pop across Eastern Canada before recurring cancer shut him down, has become a Canadian legend, an engaging, heartbreaking story that can be told and retold through the generations. Helping weave his name and heroic feat into the fabric of Canadiana is the fact cities and towns across the country named schools, streets, buildings, a B.C. mountain and park and even an icebreaker after him. Ultimately, however, the Terry Fox Run continues to be the major reminder for people, both to donate toward cancer research in his name, and to not give up when obstacles emerge in their fight against illness or the achievement of personal goals. This year’s event will take various forms across the country; locally, school runs are planned throughout the week, and a community walk/run is scheduled for 10 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 19 at South Surrey Athletic Park (registration at 9 a.m.). These local events help make the Terry Fox Run the largest one-day fundraiser for cancer research in the world. It attracts more than three million participants and raises valuable funds for the Terry Fox Foundation. Cancer continues to be an ever-present enemy. While everyone can’t wage the same kind of fight that Fox did more than 30 years ago on lonely stretches of highway, we each have it in us to contribute in our own way to limit cancer’s reach on our society. Terry Fox galvanized the country like no one before or since. He sensed that together, we can work more effectively. Let’s do our best to honour the spirit of his endeavour and help realize his dream of keeping the fight against cancer going.

poor choices in his younger years, he is not a bad man. Nor are the majority of his housemates who have always made me feel welcome and safe. Years of addiction and, in some cases, abuse have crippled their ability to become contributing members of society, despite the limited resources available. Nowadays, my father, a soft-spoken man with kind eyes and a jovial laugh, looks nothing like the immaculately groomed millworker I remember growing up. Molly will never know the proud dad of two who would lace up his leather work boots every morning and head for the lumberyard to earn a living for his family. Nor will she know the man who would fill up his daughter’s piggy bank every night with his loose pocket change, or teach her to fly a kite. As I studied her face for signs she was upset by her surroundings or company, I realized she wasn’t affected at all. She was just a baby visiting her grandpa. Perhaps we’re more typical than I first let on. Before we left and said our goodbyes, she held up her arms, begging to be scooped up. Her delicate hand stroked his hair, unruly and peppered with grey. She poked at his belly and let out a squeal of delight. On the drive home, I looked back in my rearview mirror at the hundreds of loitering transients on the street, many of whom are homeless or residing in shelters like my dad. I vowed to myself that Molly would grow up knowing that they are individuals with names and that they are somebody’s dad… someone’s grandpa. Kristyl Clark is a writer with the Peace Arch News.

Blatant bias holds no value Editor: Re: Getting to the bottom of HST allegations, Sept. 8. Columnist Tom Fletcher, in this and previous articles about the HST, seems more intent on displaying his personal dislike for Bill Vander Zalm than on accurate, unbiased reporting. His schoolyard taunts of Vander Zalm being clown-like and other derogatory remarks are immature. About 700,000 of us signed the anti-HST petition and, by association, we must also be clowns. His articles are of no value to readers because they are so blatantly biased. I read your paper to be informed and expect columnists to provide both sides of an issue as accurately as they can and leave their personal prejudices out of it. I will judge, based on information provided, what I like or don’t and maybe send you a letter of comment. As editor, you retain the right to review, edit or not publish letters. Perhaps you should extend this to your columnists. J. Edwards, Surrey

complainer, he should keep his nose out of affairs that have nothing to do with him. The city was absolutely correct in doing what they did and should not have to consult with Pitcairn on what they should or should not do. If he wants to be consulted, let him run for office. Jack P. Scott, White Rock

Getting funding a costly move Editor: We would like to inform other people with senior parents in private facilities to make sure their parents can afford to move to a

government-funded facility when they need to. Moving from one facility to another costs a bundle. Our mother, who has Alzheimer’s disease, was living at a private facility in South Surrey. She was doing well and we loved the facility, and the staff did a great job. However, it was very expensive – $6,049 a month – and they couldn’t provide us with a government-funded bed. The wait was four to five years. So, we moved our mother when a governmentfunded facility became available. Here’s the money issue. When you receive notice for a governmentfunded facility, you have two days to move and therefore you can’t give a month’s notice to your present facility. We moved mother on July 15, having paid for the full month of July. We also had to pay a half

month’s rent at the new facility. On top of that, because we actually couldn’t give a month’s notice, the private facility wants us to pay for the full month of August, too. That’s a total of $9,046 to pay for no room or care, and we think it’s an easy money grab. You would think they would prorate it. I can understand that since we gave notice and moved on July 15, we might have to pay to Aug. 15, but not the whole month. Consider that care facilities are in high demand and it should be no trouble to fill our mother’s room with another resident. Yes, government facilities are less costly per month – but it costs you a whopping amount to move! B. Vail, Aldergrove and J. Van Elswyk, Surrey

Children hope camera returned Hannah Sutherland

SPONSORED BY THE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS SUPPORTING LOCAL CHARITIES!!

Staff Reporter

After spending the summer writing, rehearsing and shooting a movie, four local elementary school children will not be screening their film as planned this week. That’s because the camera containing all the footage went missing at Crescent Park earlier this month, and hasn’t been turned in. “I’m really hoping that whoever has it will do the right thing and turn it in because that would just mean a lot to all of us,” 11-year-old Casey said. Casey, her nine-year-old sister, Dana, and schoolmates Rachel, 11, and Michael, 9, planned to surprise their parents this week with the film they spent around 30 hours rehearsing and four days shooting. In the movie, the four friends acted as characters from their favourite stories, such as Harry Potter and The Lightning Thief. Casey and Dana’s mother, Darcie Gareau – who assisted with the production – said the children had spent another full day shooting commercials for the film. Everything was complete, and Gareau was waiting for school to start so she could edit and piece together the footage. “We were really happy when it was all finished,” Casey said. “We were laughing, we were high-fiving.” Casey said she took the camera to Crescent Park Sept. 5 with her father, and accidentally left it on a bench after sitting to watch a cricket game. About 15 minutes elapsed between the time she realized she had forgotten the

I felt sick. I felt like crying.” Gareau – a White Rock resident – said the cricket players and bystanders didn’t notice anything, and a description of the camera left with RCMP and the city hasn’t turned up anything.

This is an amendment to establish specific policies and development permit guidelines to ensure that large lot infill redevelopment on the east side of White Rock takes place in the defined area in a planned manner. Infill redevelopment includes narrow lot subdivisions and street front townhouses of a low density nature. It also may include low profile apartments at low densities adjacent to North Bluff Road. The policies and guidelines are also intended to provide direction and certainty to the process, to enhance the general character of the area in the neo-traditional style, and to otherwise minimize adverse impact on traffic, on-street parking, and on service capacities.

White Rock firefighters to use Studebaker for community events

Antique fire truck set to make return Hannah Sutherland

T

Staff Reporter

hirty years after making its last big public appearance at the Spirit of the Sea Festival, the White Rock fire department’s 1925 Studebaker is coming home. The antique fire truck is to arrive at the city’s fire hall Sept. 26, after being handed over by the volunteers who have spent the last four years helping to restore it. “We feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment,” said White Rock firefighter Scott Booth, who helped with the restoration efforts. “It’s just really nice to bring a piece of White Rock’s history back to the city so everyone can look at it and enjoy it.” Booth said the truck was one of two built in the garage of a Marine Drive gas station. While he doesn’t know what happened to the second vehicle, the one that has been restored was decommissioned in 1948. Booth said the truck’s location during the next 30 years is unclear, but the White Rock fire department had it back in its possession by 1978. It appeared in the sea festival’s parade two years later. “From that point on, it sat at the back of the fire hall,” Booth said. “There was no real interest in it.” The truck changed hands after that, he said, and became lost to the department. “The firefighters here were actually looking for it the last few years,” he said. “(We) kept coming up cold.” That was until four years ago, when a Studebaker fire truck was donated to the Shriners’ B.C. and Yukon branch’s vintage car club. The club’s founding member and active Shriner Mac Robinson set to restoring the vehicle – which was “a disaster” after a barn collapsed on it – and, in the process, found lettering that read ‘WRFD No. 2.’ “Mac called us and said… we have your fire truck,” Booth said. The White Rock Firefighters Association partnered with Robinson and others from the Teamsters Freight Transportation Museum and Archives in Port Coquitlam – where the truck has been kept the last two years – to restore it.

Robinson said it will be an adjustment to no longer work on the truck. “After four years, it’s kind of hard to get used to all of a sudden realizing we haven’t got any projects to look forward to.” Robinson – who also credited museum assistant curator Bob Nairn and the Shriners Club for their contributions – said it was his intent from the beginning to give the truck to the White Rock fire department. “The amount of work that Scott Booth has put into it himself, and getting things done that we needed through people he knew, as far as I’m concerned, more than justifies the fact that, yes, they should have it back,” he said. “We just need to have it back where it belongs.”

The partnership came about after Lawson, looking to expand his fitness business, mentioned to a friend that it’d be great to “get somebody like Trevor Linden.” Lawson’s friend happened to know Linden, and a meeting was set up. The longtime Canucks captain came onboard soon after. “It was in the works for about six months,” Lawson said. “I didn’t really know Trev before, but he’s very bright and also very interested in health and fitness – he says he’s more fit now than when he played hockey – so it’s been a great fit.” Lawson’s club will include memberships for $15 per month. “Many things in life are expensive, but I don’t think someone’s health and fitness should be,” Linden said in a release.

Chuck Lawson (left) and Trevor Linden speak to the media last week after launching Club 16.

Lawson said initial response to Club 16 has been more than he expected. “Response has been off the wall. We actually had to hire people just to keep up with the (buzz),” he said. Lawson said plans to expand into other cities is underway. “We’re absolutely looking to expand, and we’re actually investigating (new locations) already,” he said. Linden is the second B.C. sports star to jump into the fitness-centre game; NBA superstar Steve Nash – a Victoria native – has opened three Steve Nash Sports Clubs around the Lower Mainland in recent years, including one in Morgan Crossing this summer.

ike thousands of students and other teachers on the Peninsula, Yvonne Dawydiak returned to the classroom last week. While she may be well-versed when it comes to teaching and inspiring her young students, the parttime Grade 2/3 teacher at White Rock Elementary admits she still gets the back-toKristyl Clark school jitters as Labour Day starts to encroach on the dog days of summer. “There’s always that anxiety about starting a new year, but it’s very exciting – everyone is so shiny and the schools are so clean… you can’t help but be affected by that.” But it isn’t just the excitement of a clean slate or in Dawydiak’s case, a chalkboard, that gives the long-time White Rock resident butterflies come fall. In addition to teaching the basics, such as reading, writing and arithmetic, Dawydiak introduces thousands of students from all over the Lower Mainland to the Peninsula’s wildlife as a environmental mentor with the Friends of the Semiahmoo Bay Society’s Educational Outreach Program. Along with local naturalist Lynn Pollard, who educates urban youth on the birds of the Semiahmoo Bay, Dawydiak shares a bounty of marine artifacts, including a pond habitat which stays in the classroom temporarily for the students to study over a two-week period. The two environmental enthusiasts also take the students on a hands-on field trip to the great outdoors to explore what they’ve learned in the classroom. The benefits of the program extend beyond the walls of the classroom, Dawydiak said. “Very little is really understood or known about the wildlife that lives in urban areas, particularly, marine life. If we can get kids to care about their environment now, they are going to want to affect

change, that’s why connecting them with where they live now is very important.” For more information about the program or to book an classroom visit, by donation to the Friends of the Semiahmoo Bay, visit www.birdsonthebay.ca or email edoutreach@birdsonthebay.ca In this week’s edition for Local Flavours, Dawydiak shares her Beet Salad recipe, which she said tends to change with the seasons. “With wild sockeye plentiful this year, my husband and I smoked a bunch in our smoker, which tasted great on this salad instead of the pecans. The fruit can be changed with the seasons as well.

Beet Salad Ingredients:

(Dressing - ratio of oil to citrus juice is about 3:1) Juice of 1 lemon Juice of 1/2 orange 1/3 cup Extra virgin olive oil Salt and pepper to taste Salad: 5 or 6 beets 1 bag of mixed greens Topping: Candied pecans Fresh blueberries Goat cheese

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 220°C (425°F). Trim beets; prick several times with a fork and place on foil-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Fold foil over to cover and crimp edges. Roast for 30 to 40 minutes or until fork-tender. When cool, peel, cut into cubes. In small bowl, mix together lemon juice, orange juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss beets in dressing. Before serving, line four individual salad plates with mixed greens. Top with beets. Sprinkle with candied pecans, blueberries and goat cheese. Garnish with orange zest or grated fresh beet.

We’ve got some Cable prevents fatal crash TLC for you. Alex Fraser Bridge on-ramp. Because of the barrier, the truck didn’t cross over the median into oncoming traffic. The pickup suffered extensive damage to the passenger side in the Aug. 31 crash, but the driver was uninjured. It is not the first time the barrier has prevented a potentially fatal crash. On Aug. 5 the driver of an older Mazda MPV minivan nodded off at the wheel and crossed into the median. “The cable barrier prevented that vehicle from crossing the grassy median into oncoming traffic, thus averting a collision,” said Sgt. Evan Albert, the unit commander of Deas Island traffic services.

Dan Ferguson Black Press

A visitor from Alberta recently found out the hard way that stomping on the gas pedal while driving on rain-slicked pavement isn’t a good idea. Especially not when the rain comes after several hot, dry days that bake the asphalt and bring oil to the surface. But the lesson did not come at the cost of any lives, thanks to the still-under-construction cable barrier on Highway 99 between the George Massey Tunnel and the U.S. border. The grey GMC pickup truck spun out of control and skidded into the grassy median that divides Highway 99 near the

Some damage was done to the cable barrier and the vehicle in question had to be towed away, but the driver was not hurt and no other vehicle was hit. Albert said the cable barrier absorbed the impact and was quickly repaired. The average time for a normal repair to a cable barrier after a crash is approximately 1.5 to two hours for a three-person crew. Studies in the U.S. and Australia have shown cable barriers can reduce highway fatalities by as much as 30 per cent. They cost less than concrete, don’t cause pileups of snow or obstruct driver views and the cables’ flexibility does a better job of dissipating impact energy.

here’s just something magical about going to the movies. From the sweet aroma of buttery popcorn to the visual feast of horror, drama and romance on the big screen, the theatre is a favourite past time for all ages. With the rising prices for cinema tickets and costly concession goodies, many moviegoers have opted to turn a room in their homes into their own private theatre, complete with big screen TV, comfortable seating and anything else the heart desires. For those homeowners who have yet to embark on their own home theatre, the process can prove intimidating, especially for those unsure of just where or how to get started. To help homeowners understand just what it is they’re going to need to make their dream home theater a reality, we talked to Bryan Ayres, president of Ayreborn Audio/Video Inc., a high-end independent retail electronics store located in South Surrey. Television When it comes to televisions, it’s amazing just how far technology has come in such a relatively small amount of time. As recently as 20 years ago, most television viewers did not even have cable television, and the programming they did watch was on TVs with rabbit ear antennae that often received poor reception. Today, a consumer’s television options are seemingly endless, with plasma, LCD, DLP, LED, and even 3D televisions available. Ayres said a common misconception many of his customers have when it comes to 3D TVs is that you can only

With the push of a button you can watch regular TV or 3D... it’s quite remarkable.â€? DVD Player Today’s consumers are increasingly looking to Blu-ray players as their video source of choice. Homeowners with high-definition televisions will likely prefer a Blu-ray player, which provides the clearest picture. Ayres advises customers go with the same brand Blu-ray player as one’s television set as it will operate better when using the remote control. Surround sound Speakers play a significant role when attempting to recreate that movie theatre experience at home. One essential ďż˝ see page 19

High tech on the home front � from page 18 element when choosing speakers is voice-matching. With voice-matched speakers, sound flows easily around viewers. Without voice-matched speakers, the speakers might not all share the same harmonic characteristics, leading to disjointed sound as the sound travels from speaker to speaker. While many speaker systems are even prematched, Ayres warns against going for the budget friendly ‘home theatre in a box,’ which can cost you in the long run. “If one piece breaks down the whole system has to go in the garbage. It’s better to go into an independent electronic store and check out the showroom, then have someone come into your house to show you what you will need for your system and budget.” Theatre seating And lastly, no home theatre is complete without comfortable seating.

Fall Home & Garden

Tools for autumn to-do

A

sk any homeowner and he or she is bound to have a to-do list of little chores around the house and in the garden that need to get done this fall. These tasks are made much easier with the right tools. Depending on individual skill level, many homeowners already have basic tools on hand, such as hammers and screwdrivers. Others may have a more extensive collection of tools available for projects, such as saws, sanders and electric drills. Before any project is started, homeowners should take inventory of what they have and what they will need to complete a project. Here are some common projects and the tools that will be needed:

Gutter & window cleaning

Cooler weather means leaves and debris will collect in gutters and downspouts. A sturdy ladder, gloves, garden hose, small shovel, and bucket will be needed to clear out the debris. Be sure the ladder is placed so that it is on level ground. A rented power washer can make quick work of cleaning grimy siding and hardto-reach windows. South Surrey-based company AcroTech Cleaning Systems offers an alternative to pressure washing that is both gentle and effective, called steam washing. Using medium-pressure hot water steam- which includes no other products or chemicals – technicians are able to gently clean the home, roof, walkway and driveway without the risk of damage that may be caused by pressure washing.

Landscape clean-up

Many homeowners like to prune shrubs and trees before the cold weather sets

in. A hedge trimmer can quickly shape shrubbery. An auger can help dig up dead annuals and clean out planting beds. Rent a wood chipper to make mulch out of felled tree branches. For a wide selection of handy gardening tools, including pruning sheers and hedge trimmers, check out Potter’s Nursery in South Surrey.

Flooring

Perhaps installing a new floor is on the to-do list. Many laminate and vinyl products make it easy for homeowners to do the work themselves. A more extensive project, such as installation of tile or hardwood, can be done by a contractor. Flooring needs may require a power saw or razor for cutting the flooring – depending on the material. Other tools include adhesive, spacers, measuring tape, knee pads, eye protection, and clean-up materials. If you’re thinking about upgrading old carpet or worn out hardwood, consider the benefits of bamboo flooring available at White Rock’s Surfside Flooring.

Leadfoot drivers who speed more than 40 km/h over the limit may have their vehicles impounded for a week under new enforcement rules that kick in Sept. 20. Solicitor General Mike de Jong said the province is aiming to save lives by taking some of the most dangerous speeders off the road. “Excessive speed is often a death sentence for everyone involved – the driver, their passengers and other innocent road-users,” he said. Police write 10,000 tickets a year for excessive speeding, which carry fines of $368 to $483, three ICBC penalty points and an ICBC driverrisk premium of $320 per year for three years over and above regular insurance rates. But as of Sept. 20, a charge of excessive speeding will also trigger a mandatory seven-day impoundment for a first offence, a 30-day impoundment for a second offence and 60 days for subsequent excessive speeding offences within two years. “Speed is the number-one contributing factor to fatalities in car accidents in the province,” said Cpl.

Speeding drivers will face tougher penalties as of Sept. 20.

Jamie Chung of Langley RCMP E Division Traffic Services. The new rules may also lead to longer impoundment of street racers’ cars, officials said, noting the previous minimum impoundment for street racing was 48 hours. With children returning to school, drivers are also being cautioned to practice safe driving habits and watch out for school zones. Every year in B.C., there’s an average of 16,655 crashes, 5,350 injuries and 36 deaths involving children. “We really need drivers to do their part, slow down and watch out for kids,” Chung said.

Surrey wins first of the season Saturday in overtime

Eagles, Chiefs split home-openers Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The Surrey Eagles and Langley Chiefs took turns ruining each other’s home openers on the weekend, splitting a pair of games to start the year. On Friday at South Surrey Arena, the Chiefs’ spoiled Matt Erhart’s debut as a BCHL head coach with a 5-3 win, and the Eagles returned the favour Saturday in a 4-3 overtime thriller. “I thought we played pretty well – probably for five of the six periods – overall,” said Erhart. “We had a bit of a lapse at the end of Saturday’s game… we had the lead late, and then it went into overtime, but I was really happy with our work ethic and our energy. “It’s good to get that first win out of

booming shots from the blue-line. He finished with four assists in the two games. “He’s a proven two-way player with some offensive talent, and he’s going to be a real good player for us this year,” said Erhart of the 19-year-old, who spent last season with Wichita Falls of the North American Hockey League. On Saturday, Erhart got his first win as a head coach under his belt, thanks largely to his new captain, Tyler Morley, who potted the overtime winner on a breakaway, after taking a pass from his younger brother Brandon, an Eagle rookie. McGowan scored twice in the win, and defenceman Riley Sweeney opened the scoring, with a shorthanded marker. Eagles goalie � see page 33

Days before they opened the B.C. Hockey League schedule last Friday, the Surrey Eagles announced Tyler Morley would serve as team captain for the coming season. Morley replaces Derek Henderson, who wore the ‘C’ last year. Henderson, 20, was traded the previous week to the Prince George Spruce Kings – in exchange for future considerations – in an effort to get the Eagles’ roster to the leaguemaximum six overage players. While Henderson, a Langley native, was the odd man odd, the six 20-year-olds to make the opening night roster were newcomers Wade Bennett, Daniel Gentzler, Matt Mazzarolo and Jeff Vanderlugt and returnees Bradley McGowan and goaltender Vinny Lessard. Morley is now in his third season with the Eagles. He had 37 points in 53 games last year. Next season, he’ll play in the NCAA, for Merrimack College. “Tyler is the type of player every team wants as their captain. He plays hard every shift and always leads by example,” head coach Matt Erhart said in a release.” Serving as alternate captains this year are Erik Cooper, Richard Vanderhoek and Robert Lindores. - Nick Greenizan

sports Offence struggles in road loss

Rams bucked by Broncos Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The Big Kahuna Rams saw their B.C. Football Conference record fall to 3-4 on the season after a 13-5 loss Saturday to the Kamloops Broncos. The Rams’ offence – which has been inconsistent at times this year – struggled mightily in Kamloops. The team’s five points came as a result of two safeties and one missed field goal by kicker Nick Boyd. The team’s two quarterbacks,

Nathaniel White and Taylor Potkins, combined for just 101 total passing yards, completing just nine of 23 pass attempts, and the team didn’t fare much better on the ground, either. Jake Glass led the team with 45 yards rushing, while White had 33. And while Rams’ offence sputtered, the Broncos weren’t much better with the ball in their hands. Quarterback Jesse Neufeld completed just five pass attempts for 31 yards, but the team got a spark from running backs

Clayton Lubda and Spencer Martin, who each had 71 yards rushing. Martin also had the game’s only offensive touchdown, on a 15-yard run in the second quarter. Defensively, Belah Small had one interception for the Rams, while Jon Ellingson and Greg Sage led the team with five tackles apiece. The Rams are back home Saturday, when they host the 6-1 Okanagan Sun. Kickoff is 3 p.m. at South Surrey Athletic Park.

McGowan nets pair in win over Chiefs � from page 29 Vinny Lessard stopped 35 shots for the win. McGowan also had two points – a goal and an assist – in Friday’s loss, and impressed Erhart. “I thought he was great in both games. He really stepped up for us. Brad’s more of a playmaker than a goalscoring, but for him to have three goals after two games is a good sign,” he said. The Eagles are on the road this weekend, with a game in Nanaimo Friday, Cowichan Saturday and Powell River Sunday. The team’s next home game

is Wednesday, Sept. 22 against Trail.

Eagles notes

An announced crowd of 1,325 took in Friday’s home-opener at South Surrey Arena – the Eagles’ largest openinggame crowd since 1,320 bought tickets to the team’s first game of the 2007/08 season. Friday’s game was also a homecoming for one member of the Langley Chiefs – rookie forward Mason Blacklock suited up the visitors. He is a Semiahmoo Minor Hockey Association alumnus, who played major midget last season.
