White Rock to write premier on funding

City takes stand on soaring police costs Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Costs of policing in White Rock are “absolutely” increasing, and officials say it’s time to speak out. Councillors this week unanimously agreed the city needs to write B.C. Premier Christy Clark to voice their concerns, in light of ongoing RCMP contract negotiations. “We need to communicate (the) escalating costs we are seeing, how it’s increasing our

costs,” Mayor Catherine Ferguson said. Negotiations for a new 20-year contract with the RCMP are underway Canada-wide, with the current contract set to expire in March 2012. In supporting Ferguson’s motion, Coun. Al Campbell said everyone “need be quite concerned” about what the end result of negotiations in B.C. will be. At the moment, White Rock’s policing costs sit at $3.5 million per year, an amount

city manager Peggy Clark said has climbed 33 per cent since 2004, when policing costs were $2.65 million. Over the same period, the portion that goes to pay for the services of the Mounties’ integrated teams has jumped 300 per cent, from $80,000 to $354,000. The number of officers policing the city – 22, with a 23rd dedicated to integrated teams – has not changed. Campbell said he attended an update on the contract negotiations earlier this month

in Surrey. He told Peace Arch News every mayor there – he was representing Ferguson – was “very, very concerned” about costs associated both to the new contract and Surrey’s new $1-billion RCMP headquarters, under construction in Green Timbers. Nobody there, however, could say what additional costs, if any, municipalities might see as a result, he said. Noting more than a third of White Rock’s  see page A8

Homeless advice

Out, but not down Tracy Holmes

very city should have a park for its homeless, a place where $2 will get them a shower and, for a little more – a fiver, perhaps – a place to sleep. It’s an idea mulled often by Steve Robinson these days, over coffee, from his sleeping quarters under a loading dock behind White Rock’s Central Plaza and, more recently, while pitching his story to a newspaper reporter. Robinson has only been homeless for about a month this time, but he knows his situation is far from unique in this seaside town. Despite a recent survey that logged few homeless in White Rock, Robinson notes he knows of at least 50 who have no place to call home. And he says it’s high time city officials took some responsibility for the situation. Resources for those on the street here are few, the 54-year-old says. The closest homeless shelter to White Rock is 12 kilometres away in Newton. But Robinson says he, for one, doesn’t feel safe there. Many with no place to go are struggling with addiction, and come from backgrounds of abuse – situations that make getting life back on track all the harder. Simple things, like access to warm water, can make a world of

Robinson doesn’t mind the arrangement. It’s dry. The loading dock provides shelter from the elements, and there’s room enough for his dog, Echo, and best friend from high school, Don Severeid, to hunker down, too (though Severeid did get a little damp during last weekend’s downpour).  see page A4

WE PAY CASH!!!

Hogg has tough job ahead S

party’s dismal handling of many aspects of the economy in the 1990s. New NDP Leader Adrian Dix was at former premier Glen Clark’s side during much of that time, and that won’t make it easy for the NDP to campaign on economic issues. However, the BC Conservatives are more lively than they have been in decades. Even if the Conservatives pick up just five per cent of the vote, and don’t elect any candidates, there is a very good chance the NDP will win as a result of vote splitting. Clark, Hogg and others on the bridge know that – and so does Dix, who has the margins of victory in each B.C. riding in 2009 memorized. Hogg will have plenty of work to do to keep caucus members ready to unreservedly back the government. Thus far, one of the BC Liberals’ greatest strengths has been the backing from caucus, despite all the missteps the cabinet has taken. Even the two caucus members who left in the turmoil over the HST and Campbell’s leadership, Blair Lekstrom and Bill Bennett, are back in the fold. If Hogg can assist Clark in keeping caucus united, and if a united caucus is able to show B.C. residents that the BC Liberals remain a viable option, he will have more than met the expectations of those who voted for him as caucus chair – and many of those who have backed him in four straight elections in Surrey-White Rock.

news White Rock debates how many neighbours need to support a tree’s removal

City residents to get say on tree majority Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A suggestion that White Rock require 80 per cent of neighbours be in favour of trimming or removing a city tree before any such work can occur does not have the support of some city councillors. In a lengthy discussion of proposed revisions to the city’s tree-management policy Monday, Couns. Al Campbell and Lynne Sinclair agreed the standard should be lower. “Would two-thirds not be more appropriate?” Campbell said Monday. “I would like to certainly see that 65 (per cent) thrown out there, as part of that process.” Sinclair said the 80 per cent figure “almost

stacks the deck one way.” “I do agree it should be substantial,” she said. “I guess we’ll hear from the public on that.” Council gave unanimous support to putting the draft revisions out for public perusal, a process that’s anticipated to get underway late next month. The original Policy 611 was approved in June 2010, and was intended to give staff and council guidance in dealing with applications to trim, prune or remove trees on city lands. It became a source of contention earlier this year, after council granted an appeal that resulted in the removal of two trees in the 15100-block of Royal Avenue. The applicant said the trees were blocking views.

In a report to council, the city’s director of engineering and municipal operations writes the suggested revisions recognize the value put on views in White Rock, but limit the role view alone can play in a decision to prune or remove a tree. “The city will consider an application to re-establish a view that has been obscured by tree growth, but will not consider a request to prune or remove a tree on city land to establish a new view,” writes Rob Thompson. In response to a question from Coun. Doug McLean, Thompson confirmed property owners could potentially apply to have a tree pruned or removed to restore a view of 50 years ago, if they had evidence their

original view had been lost. Thompson told council the 80 per cent figure was chosen “to indicate a clear majority of support for removal of the tree.” But ultimately, it’ll be up to citizens to make the call, he said. “It’s really up to White Rock to generate their own percentage for what indicates clear support.” Commending the revisions, Coun. Helen Fathers said she would prefer applications have 100 per cent of neighbour support, but suggested all three figures – 65, 80 and 100 per cent – be put to the public. Coun. Grant Meyer said White Rock needs a policy “that doesn’t cause the sideshow that happened here in winter and spring.”

The inferno that destroyed the Quattro condominium in 2008 is one example of why Surrey’s fire chief is bringing in tougher fire regulations.

Stricter rules for construction sites

Fire chief’s plans surprise builders Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Faster sprinkler installation, better security and a host of other requirements may be necessary during building construction, as Surrey’s fire chief works to prevent massive fires like the ones that have hit the Lower Mainland in recent years. In May, the Remy, a six-storey wood condominium project under construction in Richmond burned, the flames visible for miles. In 2008, Quattro, a four-storey, wood-frame condominium in Whalley was also the site of a dramatic fire. The blaze, near 138 Street and 107A Avenue, razed the building and caused extensive damage to another nearby development. In about a week, Surrey fire Chief Len Garis plans to introduce several tools to prevent similar fires that will be available to inspectors for all construction in Surrey. Peter Simpson, president of the Greater Vancouver Home Builders Association, was surprised to hear the new regulations made it this far without broader consultation. The guidelines haven’t been before the City of Surrey’s development advisory committee, he said. “It’s a development issue,” Simpson said. “If there was something coming forward that the industry needs to be aware of, at least to discuss, that would be the place to bring it up.” Simpson said the more voices contributing to

the regulations, the better they’ll be. Garis set out to clarify that it was a conHe said there will be a higher cost to building struction site fire rather than anything to do with the new regulations, which should be dis- with provincial policy.

Fireworks at this summer’s Spirit of the Sea Festival have been cancelled. Event chair John Timms said Wednesday that sponsorship couldn’t be pinned down for the $10,000 event by the July 19 deadline, despite a public call for support last week. While some have stepped forward with smaller donations, much of that money has been dedicated to specific areas of the festival, and the lesser amounts wouldn’t be enough to cover a costly element such as the fireworks anyway, Timms said. “We’re not getting the $5,000 and $10,000 sponsors.” Cost of presenting the 45-minute fireworks display – which was scheduled for Saturday, July 30 – is approximately the same as the total production costs for the festival’s three entertainment stages, Timms noted. Despite worries last week that a lack of funding would result in cutbacks to the entertainment program, Timms said a full slate of performances and activities will go ahead as planned thanks to local musicians “playing for far less than they would normally get.” “Across the board, they have reduced their fees to play this festival and support the community.” Vendor fees have financed the festival’s core activities, Timms said, and the City of White Rock has given financial support and lent equipment. “What has been missing in recent years is support within the business community,” he said. “We understand that most businesses are themselves having to deal with reduced revenues and increased costs, and that few are in a position to contribute at the level they have in past years. “Even small sponsorships at this late stage will make a difference in this year’s festival, and place the festival in a stronger position for next year.” The festival will be held July 29 to Aug. 1 on White Rock beach.

Homelessness: ‘it’s not a choice’

Hard on family

Road to despair Robinson attended Crescent Park Elementary as a child, then Semiahmoo Secondary. He was married the first time for nine years, and the second time for eight. He is twice-divorced, and says he signed off on his share in two White Rock houses in lieu of child support. He lost his driver’s licence after his first wife took him to court and went after him for that support. His second wife still sends him an occasional cheque. After his tenancy in a rental home near Five Corners ended last year, Robinson says he bought and renovated a 10-year-old fifthwheel trailer to live in, parking it on a local motel’s property. Last month, when a neighbour of the motel complained, Robinson discovered area campgrounds were either full for the summer, had lengthy waiting lists or wouldn’t accept an older fifth-wheel and dog on their grounds. He’s been on White Rock’s

Pressed, he divulges the two daughters are in their 30s now and live in the Fraser Valley… then fades off. He brightens when he thinks of a disabled sister who had asked for his help to commit suicide. “I backed out,” he says of a pact. She went on to find the love of her life and live another 10 years, he says with a smile, remembering the thanks he received at Peace Arch Hospital in the 48-year-old’s final moments. It makes the current relationship he has with his surviving siblings all the more painful. “I was probably a little intoxicated, and she’s taking up space in my head,” he says, referring to the early-morning calls that prompted the threat of police action. His eyes well with tears when he explains why he couldn’t make the promise not to call his sibling. “We were tight, right up until I became homeless. I just want my sister back.”

Officials respond Police in White Rock and South Surrey say they field few calls related to the homeless. Unless there’s a complaint, the approach taken when officers come across someone living on the street is more about seeing if the individuals are OK, and directing them to resources, says South Surrey Staff Sgt. Scott Campbell. “We don’t just say, go to the next town over,” Campbell says. “What we always do with people in those situations is offer them a card with all the options.” While police ultimately want to help the homeless turn their lives around, the reality is, no one can be forced into a shelter or to seek out the services offered, Campbell says. “There’s certainly a wide range of services,” he says. “A big part of it is, the people don’t really want it. They don’t want to be

regulated by rules.” White Rock RCMP Staff Sgt. Lesli Roseberry responded by email to Peace Arch News’ requests to discuss Robinson’s claims that she advised him to go to Surrey. She states her officers have also not been directed to “crack down” on homelessness. “Nobody identifying themselves as a homeless person has spoken to me,” Roseberry writes. Robinson’s concern for his safety at the Newton shelter – “I’m not going to go live with a bunch of crackheads” – came as a surprise for Hyland House assistant manager Jay Blaschuk. The facility is a clean-andsober shelter, Blaschuk says. That means, while no one who needs a place to stay is turned away, per se, anyone using, carrying or under the influence is redirected to a “no-barrier” shelter such as that in Whalley. “If they’re under the influence, they can’t come in,” he says.

New beginning A break in the rain last Thursday morning was good news for Robinson. “I might be able to work today,” he says, his blue eyes taking in the brightened sky from under the brim of his black Miller ball cap. Dressed in jeans, a jean jacket and work boots, Robinson’s hands are dirty and cracked. He parks his electric bike and ties Echo’s rope leash to a nearby garbage can. The 11½-year-old is great with people, but less keen on members of her own species, Robinson notes. “Can I buy you a coffee?” he asks a reporter. “I’ll buy you a coffee.” Returning with two steaming mugs, he reiterates that his situation isn’t forever. He didn’t share his story to gain sympathy. He simply hopes it will help those for whom life on the street is more permanent. “My situation’s temporary,” he says. “Come September, when the tourists leave and the campgrounds open up, I will find a place. But I have a lot of friends that it’s not temporary for.” Severeid is one. Homeless after a job working with a friend on Vancouver Island went sour, and disabled by arthritis, emphysema and asthma, life on the street is all that’s available to him, Severeid says. “It’s not a choice. It’s just the way it is.”

His calls to one family member have been relentless at times – as many as 22 in one night, and most recently at 3 a.m. last Thursday. In a brief meeting later that morning with his sisters – one of whom he hadn’t seen in 10 years – the one he calls frequently is sympathetic to his plight, but clearly frustrated. “I’m sorry that you’re homeless,” she says emphatically, before drawing a line in the sand and threatening to call police if Robinson crosses it. “I’m asking you to cease and desist calling me.” “I’ll try,” he responds. “I can’t promise. I’ll do my best.” After his siblings leave, Robinson apologizes to a reporter for double-booking his morning. The reception wasn’t what he’d expected, he admits. “I thought it would’ve been a little warmer.”

Changes may be necessary eninsula residents who bundled up and trekked down to either Marine Drive or to Softball City last weekend, to watch the Tour de White Rock or Canadian Open, certainly got their money’s worth. (Especially cycling fans, since the Tour is free of charge). But while each July brings out the diehard fans of cycling and fastpitch, this year’s incarnations of both showed signs of what has been a startling trend of late – dwindling attendance. The lower-than-usual numbers could be chalked up to the weather. It poured rain throughout the final few days of the fastpitch tournament, and thunder and lightning the night before the Tour de White Rock’s Sunday road race no doubt kept a few away, although organizers got lucky when the criterium was staged between storms. But Tour de White Rock attendance has clearly been waning for years. Where once the sidewalks along Marine Drive were jammed two or three deep, now there is park-bench space aplenty throughout most of the race. Higher attendance at the Canadian Open was no doubt expected, too. The Canada Cup – the Open’s predecessor – routinely attracted more than 100,000 fans throughout the week. While tournament organizers no longer release attendance numbers, it’s unlikely this year’s event hit anywhere close to that number. Reasons why both events are seeing a drop run deeper than just the weather, of course. The Open is just in its second year – and first since re-adding an international division, which was the Canada Cup’s big draw – so they can certainly be cut some slack. And this year’s Tour suffered from perhaps its weakest field in a decade, as many pro riders were bound by other race commitments, and the women’s field had just 22 racers, down from its usual amount of 50-plus. There are possible solutions. If a change in date for the Tour de White Rock – or for BC Superweek in its entirety – would result in more top riders coming here, then it should be examined. And Canadian Open director Greg Timm has already promised next year’s event will be bumped up a few days, so it will better dove-tail with the world championships, thus bringing more international teams into the mix. Organizers are wise not to rest on the laurels of past successes. They should remain focused in continuing to bring the world’s best – not just the best available – to our doorsteps, and be wary of taking their remaining fans for granted. If not, they would soon find out that what Ben Franklin once said rings true: “When you’re finished changing, you’re finished.”

But it’s just trees, folks. Trees affecting an incredibly small portion of the area’s demographic – those who either live beside trees on large plots of land, or who own million-dollar houses on the bluff. It’s what Twitter users would quickly tag as #richpeopleproblems. Surely, there are bigger issues. Or at least, simpler solutions. It’s when dealing with the latter that I’m reminded of some advice I once received from a service technician at the car dealership where I worked in high school, after I came to him with yet another complicated solution to a simple problem. “Quit thinking, you’re hurting the team,” he told me. Pretty good idea, no? And he wasn’t even the mayor. Now, I don’t have a solution, simple or otherwise, but then again, perhaps I’m not fit to speak on the subject of views. After all, the sightlines from my house aren’t exactly of a lottery-home calibre. If I look out my back window, I can see my garage, and more houses. Out the front, an old farmhouse, but if I crane my neck just so, I can almost see Costco. But even if I could see the ocean from my front door, I don’t know what difference my opinion would make. I’ve only lived there nine months. Nick Greenizan writes for the Peace Arch News.

City hall not at head of queue Editor: Re: Action on new city hall ‘long overdue, June 28. Regarding the perceived need for a new city hall in White Rock. Although it is stated by a White Rock councillor that the existing facilities are not representative of the majority of similar chambers in the Lower Mainland, it might be noted that neither are the development fees charged to new projects representative of fees charged by other municipalities, so there is a greater tax burden on existing ratepayers than there needs to be. I would suggest that a capital project such as a new city hall would require a new source of funding, such as development fees, to be contemplated. There may be no air conditioning nor an elevator, but then, many of the ratepayers who are likely going to be asked to foot the bill have neither, either. If the weather of this past 10 months is indicative, I think opening the windows and employing a couple of fans might be adequate. Perhaps staff could service the public by utilizing entrances on both levels to eliminate the need for an elevator. I think a new furnace and a revamped air-movement system may be warranted and efficient, as well as new carpets. Renew, reuse and renovate! There are various examples of infrastructure and maintenance within White Rock – including street paving and sewer system – which are a disgrace and should queue up ahead of a new city hall. Bob Holden, White Rock

Questions loom over HST vote Editor: People need answers from our government regarding the HST before they vote in the referendum. Why did the provincial government wait until July 23, 2009 – two months after the provincial election, when the legislature was not sitting – to announce that it replaced the PST with the HST? What was the provincial government’s justification for not telling the 4.5 million people living in B.C. about this tax change before it was acted on? What happened to the $1.6 billion the provincial government received as part of the HST package? What conditions did the federal government put on the government of B.C. for implementing the HST? Why is the provincial government now telling the people of B.C. they will have to repay monies to the federal government if they vote not to accept the HST? This province belongs to the people not to the government; we must exercise our rights as citizens and vote on the HST referendum. Helen Cunningham, White Rock

Q Are 140 countries wrong about HST? B.C. could be the first in the world to go from one tax to two different ones; is that logical? Those 140 – and five provinces – all have a VAT similar to our HST. If B.C. votes ‘yes’ to dump the HST, including the tax exemption on business inputs so that our prices continue to be higher than theirs, how can we compete or start new businesses? That’s not good for business investment and jobs. Maybe that’s why Prime Minister Stephen Harper and then-premier Gordon Campbell agreed on it! How would we repay the $1.6 billion federal money advanced – roughly 90 per cent from other provinces? What about the administration costs of two different taxes rather than one. Where’s the money to rehire the 300 or more people to run the PST, and pay for office space, etc.? And what about the extra costs

of collecting two different taxes to every B.C. business? Again, more costs mean it’s harder to compete. It seems that everyone complains about the HST, but no one adds up the HST payments made to the poor, low-income seniors and families, recent personal income tax reductions and the HST reductions, to 10 per cent in 2014, which are now law. And how else do you start something like an HST, other than with business exemptions and the conviction that competition will in time sort it out – and it will. No one likes the way the tax was introduced, but it’s time to look at the implications of the tax itself. Norval Garrad, Surrey Q Yes, I wish to extinguish HST. This puzzles me, why couldn’t the government simply say what it meant: “Do you want HST?” Liisa Parsikangas, White Rock

A promise to pay it forward Editor: As I was returning my husband’s income-tax forms last week, I must have lost a copy of his Notice of Assessment walking up to the accountants. I was unaware that I had dropped it. This afternoon, our doorbell rang and a gentleman who had found the notice drove it over to return it. With all our personal information on it, as well that we were unaware that I had dropped it, this kind gesture was much appreciated. Shocked not only that it had been missing but that someone was wonderful enough to return it, I did not get his name. But would like to thank you again and please know that we will pay it forward.

A victim airlifted after a hit-and-run near Marine Drive last summer later died. The driver was never identified.

Target owners of vehicles that kill Editor: Re: Devastation left by those who hit, then run, July 12. Thank you for finally readdressing this issue, Peace Arch News. It was about time. In an earlier article it was explained that when a person is involved in a serious accident which they have caused, the “primal” reaction is to run. Even so, there seem to be a percentage of our population who are basically amoral. I think I know the complications of the law, whereby the driver is responsible and not the owner. However, the only case where I can think of which the owner would be clearly not involved is if the car is stolen. If the registered owner was not the driver at the time of the accident, then it had to be someone known to the owner – i.e. a friend of member of the family – and the onus should be on the registered owner to provide any information regarding the driver of the vehicle. I can’t understand people protecting someone who is involved in such a crime, even if they are related. Even if no one else knows about it, the family would be tortured forever. One good thing that we can count on in this world is that there is redemption. I think the public should be allowed more information in these cases. Often the truth never comes out. I believe that in some cases, the owner could be sued

in court but I am not sure. I just think that if the law allows the registered owner this much leeway, there is something terribly wrong with the judicial system. I remember the first time I heard of such of such a thing. I thought to myself, this is what they call a travesty. D. Barros, White Rock

Crime and punishment My blood boils when I hear about hit and runs. Those that do this type of behaviour are the lowest form of life on the planet – scumbags of the first order. Not taking responsibility for your actions for almost anything seems to be the culture of Canada these days, and this is one of the worst. It matters, of course, the reason why the hit happened, but the run is the problem. When that “runner” is caught – and they will be by our dedicated police forces – they should be sent away for at least 10 years, with no rights afforded them at all. After all, what rights do the dead and maimed now have? The pathetically weak, spineless judicial system needs to wake up and start putting the message out there that this type of behaviour is totally unacceptable to our society. MPs and MLAs, are you listening? Come on, the rest of us. Make your voices heard. Stop this growing problem in its tracks. Ivan Scott, Surrey

“Put a little fun back in your life!�

Cost-sharing backed  from page A1 annual budget goes to fire and policing, Campbell suggested it may be prudent to do what many other provinces are doing and start looking at sharing costs. It was a consensus amongst attendees of the recent Federation of Canadian Municipalities conference in Halifax, he noted. “Throughout Canada, share, share, share – that’s all we hear,� Campbell said. “How do we cut back and maintain services? You share. Many things we can’t share, but if we’re going to remain as a city, it makes sense.� For White Rock, sharing police services with Surrey seems a natural fit, he said. One step in that direction took effect March 1, 2010, when the city’s police dispatching services were taken over by Surrey. The move saved White Rock an estimated $300,000 per year. Monday’s council motion arose from correspondence received from the City of Pitt Meadows, in support of a call by the District of Kent. Officials there are encouraging municipalities concerned with rising policing costs and the lack of municipal input into the current negotiations to write the premier. In Pitt Meadows Mayor Don MacLean’s letter to the premier, he cites a 120 per cent increase in his city’s cost of the RCMP contract since 2004. In the same period, the city’s population has

climbed just 18.1 per cent. MacLean cites the financial responsibility for the integrated teams and his city’s desire to see the province play a bigger role in funding those services as key concerns. Kent Mayor Lorne Fisher’s letter, dated May 24, implores the premier to adopt a funding model that would provide municipalities with a policing assistance grant, based on the communities’ size. To sign off on an agreement that offers no control over costs or services for 20 years would be irresponsible, he writes. “Given the excessive and everincreasing costs of policing services, the lack of municipal input into contract negotiations and the lack of a consistent level of accountability in communities throughout the province in order to facilitate a meaningful community input into local policing, needs and priorities become a significant negative factor,� Fisher writes. “Realistically, signing of this policing contract in what appears to be its final form would be irresponsible on the part of a local council as there is no prescribed method of controlling costs or ensuring service over the duration of the 20-year contract.� White Rock’s letter to the premier is to be written this week, the city manager said.

Aerial show set for July 27

Snowbirds promise surprises Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

With just a week to go before the Canadian Forces Snowbirds take to the skies over White Rock, city councillors got the inside scoop on what’s in store for seaside residents July 27. “We… have some surprises,” Scott Harrold, a White Rock resident and director of the CHILD (Children Living with Intestinal and Liver Disorders) Foundation, said Monday of the Snowbirds Fly for CHILD aerial performance. At city hall to promote the fundraiser, Harrold said the thrills are to get underway around 5 p.m. next Wednesday, and include fly pasts by the armed forces Buffalo and the RCMP’s dedicated helicopter, Air 1. The Canadian Forces SkyHawks parachute team is to also perform. In its 40th year of aerobatic demonstrations, the team’s White Rock appearance is among more

than 30 scheduled across North America this season. For the main event, “smoke-on” is anticipated for 5:45 p.m., when the ‘birds will wow crowds with stunts, smoke and speed – up to 750 km/h. Harrold noted the time has been co-ordinated with railway officials, to avoid a repeat of what happened in 2008, when a freight train rolled along the waterfront during the performance. The show will be the Snowbirds’ fourth Fly for CHILD event in White Rock since 2004. Crowds at the previous shows numbered at least 40,000, and Harrold said it’s hoped as many as 60,000 will take it in this year. The numbers include those who watch from the balconies of organized house parties, he said. “Your worship, you’re in charge of the weather,” Harrold quipped. Describing the show as a “huge,

huge endeavour,” Harrold said a safety zone will be in effect on the water. The area is off-limits to all boaters and will be strictly enforced by Canadian and U.S. authorities. While aerobatic performance is set for the 27th, Harrold said the real launch takes place the day previous, when children living with intestinal disorders and their families will get to meet the Snowbirds pilots and explore the CT-114 Tudors. “It is incredible, just to see the smiles on their faces,” Harrold said. “To see that one-on-one is bigger than you can imagine.” In response to a question from Coun. Lynne Sinclair – who said her niece is coming from San Francisco to see the Snowbirds – Harrold said those hosting house parties are encouraged to add a fundraising element to the festivities.

Growth, HST reduce deficit million from Ottawa, the second half of its $1.6 billion “bribe money” for adopting the HST, he said. “People have a sense they are being played,” Ralston said. “They have an agenda, they want to ram the HST through and this is just one more instance of that.” Falcon warned that if the HST is rejected in the referendum that is currently underway, that will cost the province about $3 billion over the next three years. Half of that is to repay the federal government, and the rest is transition costs and extra HST revenue that won’t be collected. “We will have to manage that $3 billion hit, and the only way you can do that is either have larger deficits, which means borrowing more money and passing the bill onto future generations, or you can increase revenues, or you can reduce spending,” Falcon said.

ean MacPherson could have gone on vacation to celebrate her upcoming 80th birthday, and it’s unlikely anyone would have argued the occasion didn’t warrant the treat. But the longtime Canadian Cancer Society volunteer wanted the milestone to mean something more. She wanted it to help children living with cancer. So instead of packing her suitcase, the White Rock resident is planning a party, and everyone who wants to celebrate the day is invited. MacPherson hopes to see 200 people over the course of the afternoon, set for 1-5 p.m. Aug. 7. Highlights are to include music,

refreshments, a silent auction and a 50/50 draw. At the end of the day, she hopes to have $5,000 to donate to Camp Goodtimes, a program that gives children living with cancer the opportunity to go to camp. Making a difference to those living – and dying – with the disease has been MacPherson’s passion for 15 years. A cancer survivor herself, she volunteers with CCS’ White Rock office, and “has my nose in everything.” In addition to co-ordinating the annual door-to-door campaign for the past 12 years, MacPherson plays a role in the society’s daffodil program and the annual Relay for Life. She’s also a walking advertisement for the cause, sporting everything from longservice pins to the trademark daffodil on the

lapel of her black CCS vest, and talks it up to anyone willing to listen. She’s also a shoulder to lean on, for those who need it. The reason for all of her efforts is simple. “It’s an evil disease that affects little kids, old people. Doesn’t matter who you are… you can get it,” MacPherson said. “Just gotta figure out why and do something about it. “That’s why I do this, because you gotta have a reason to get up in the morning.” MacPherson emphasized funds collected by the society do not solely benefit research. While finding a cure is the ultimate goal, there’s much more to cancer than that, she said. “There’s all those people that are living with it that need help,” she said. “I always say the cancer society is an umbrella over everything

to do with cancer.” MacPherson recalled one woman who was dealing with throat cancer, who would come by the White Rock office when she needed to schedule a ride to one of her treatments. Unable to speak, she would write her request down, MacPherson said. But one day, the woman’s note wasn’t about needing a ride. “She wrote, ‘I just came to say goodbye,’” MacPherson said. “I lost it. “That’s the sort of thing that makes it worth doing, when you have a relationship.” For those wanting to attend MacPherson’s birthday party, it will be held at 16655 27 Ave. Anyone unable to attend but wanting to donate to the cause can do so online at www.copsforcancerbc.ca/tourdevalley/ birthdayparty

Sikhs aboard the Komagata Maru in Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet, 1914.

Day of remembrance set for Komagata Maru The Komagata Maru Heritage Foundation is hosting a remembrance to mark the 97th anniversary of the departure of the Komagata Maru from Vancouver. Speakers at Bear Creek Pavilion on July 23 will share a brief history and stories of the Komagata Maru incident and a candlelight vigil will follow. The July 23, 1914 incident involved the arrival of 376 emigrants from India aboard the ship Komagata Maru who were barred entry to Canada, despite the fact they all had valid passports.

The vessel sat in Burrard Inlet for weeks, with its human cargo deprived of food and water by authorities hoping to weaken their resolve. Passengers attempted to fight the racist immigration policies keeping them from shore, but all except a handful were ultimately deported two months after their arrival. The Saturday event will also collect food and monetary donations benefitting the Surrey Food Bank. The remembrance is from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at 13700 88 Ave.

For two weeks, Zachary Dallas, Quinten Dreise, David Thompson, Liam Ross, Jules Ross, Parker Simpson, Liam Herring, Jessica McInnis and Derek Barker will be camping in an immense field surrounded by trees

and woodlands with 38,000 other Scouts from around the world. The theme for the July 27-Aug. 8 event is ‘simply scouting,’ and participants are encouraged to meet with those from different cultures, religions, countries and contingents; use the outdoor environment to learn about nature’s vulnerability and how individuals can better protect it; and unite with Scouts of all ages.

Once home, Fuller texted Vicci to let her know what a significant life lesson the encounter had been for her son. “Hi Sue,” Vicci texted back. “It really was very nice of JQ to do what he did. My husband is going through chemotherapy and is really having memory issues, so this makes the found wallet even better – something positive for him!” According to Bob, there was more than $1,000 in the wallet, and he was relieved to have it back. What made him really happy, though, was the encounter with JQ. “When I shook his hand I made it a long shake to show gratitude,” he said by phone. “I told him what a good gesture that was, and he had an instant smile on his face. I said, ‘that boy has the nicest smile.’” Fuller is grateful, too, for the lucky encounter. “Burger Heaven was so crowded,” Fuller said. “Why did my son go into the bathroom? It was a God shot, something you can’t explain, like getting a cheque in the mail when you’re broke. God – or whatever you believe – did that.”

Theatre scene in full swing with plenty of diverse productions to enjoy in coming weeks

Stages near and far bustling with talent Alex Browne

Arts Reporter

t’s a busy time for live theatre locally – and for well known local players performing close to home or further afield. And fans of the medium – or those who have seldom, if ever, experienced the energy of up-close and personal theatre – are the clear beneficiaries of such a wide offering of amateur and semi-professional productions. Finishing up this week at Coast Capital Playhouse (1532 Johnston Rd.) is the powerhouse musical Nunsense, by Dan Goggin (8 p.m. performances, 2 p.m. Satuday matinee, closing night July 23), co-presented by Vancouver’s Fighting Chance Productions and the White Rock Players Club. Directed by Ryan Mooney, the irreverent satire, in which five nuns put on a fundraising show, features outstanding Lower Mainland musical theatre performers Janet Glassford, Celia Reid, Keri Smith, Nicole Stevens (a White Rock resident) and Cathy Wilmot. For tickets and information, visit www.whiterockplayers.com or 604-536-7535. Also closing on July 23 is Surrey Little Theatre’s summer youth show Unusual Suspects, by Samara Siskind (8 p.m. performances, 2 p.m. Saturday matinee) at the theatre, 7027 184 St. A showcase for 13 “stars of tomorrow” from Surrey and Langley – plus one adult player – the comedy, helmed by frequent SLT player Loryn LeGear, tells

Contributed photos

Bedfull of Foreigners, a comedy presented by Royal Canadian Theatre Company, is at Coast Capital Playhouse Aug. 4-28. Below, the cast of Bare: A Pop Opera features White Rock’s Emma Leigh Hillier (far left.) the story of a crime and four high school students united by a common hatred of their principal. Featured are Krista Long, Nicole Cochrane, Nicholas Yee and Kaeman Sustar; with William Valenzuela as Principal Piddles. For tickets, email reservations@

surreylittletheatre.com or call 604576-8451. Stellar South Surrey-raised musician, actor and director Kerry O’ Donovan is the musical director for Pipedream Theatre Project’s The Adding Machine, which runs to July 24 at the Waterfront Theatre, Granville Island. Joshua Schmidt and Jason Loewith’s adaptation of Elmer Rice’s famed 1923 Expressionist drama has been described by the New York Times as an “impossibly bleak, improbably brilliant little musical,” tracing the story of worker Mr. Zero, who flies into a murderous rage against his boss when he finds he is to be replaced

by an adding machine. Performances are 8 p.m. with a 2 p.m. Saturday matinee and a 1 p.m. Sunday matinee. For tickets and information, visit www.ticketstonight.ca or www. pipedream.ca Dynamic White Rock musical theatre talent Emma Leigh Hillier is one of the stars of Fighting Chance’s Bare: A Pop Opera, by Jon Hartmere and Damon Intrabartolo, which runs Aug. 4-13, also at the Waterfront Theatre, Granville Island. Raging adolescent hormones and sexual confusion collide in the show, set in a Catholic boarding school. “It’s steadily building a Rent-

esque following,” said director Ryan Mooney about the musical, in which an energetic cast of 19 confront issues like homophobia, drug use and teen suicide through “rousing rock anthems and gutwrenching ballads.” For tickets and information, visit www.ticketstonight.ca or www. fightingchanceproductions.ca Back in White Rock, Coast Capital Playhouse is the venue for Royal Canadian Theatre Company’s upcoming summer production A Bedfull of Foreigners, by Dave Freeman (Aug. 4-28). Company artistic director Ellie King guides the production – a door-slammer involving mistaken identities and intentions at a small hotel on the border between France and Germany – which brings back some favourite players from last year’s popular RCTC comedy/farce, No Sex, Please, We’re British. Among them are White Rock actress, director and jazz diva Wendy Bollard, Sam Gordon, Nicole Smashnuk and Becky Hachey (recently featured in Bollard’s Waiting For The Parade). New faces are Gary Peterman, Brett Harrison and Walter Ekins. The gala opening is Aug. 5 and performances are at 8 p.m. For tickets, call 604-536-7535, or visit www.rctheatreco.com A different kind of theatre – using a local winery as a laidback, welcoming venue – will make its debut Aug. 12 and 13 at Langley’s Township 7 Vineyards and Winery (21152 16 Ave., at 212 Street). An Ideal Husband, by Oscar Wilde, a co-production of the winery and keen young Okanagan-based group Twisted Tree Theatre/Bare Bones Productions, will come to Langley after its current run at Township 7’s Naramata vineyard.

arts & entertainment Local talent comes together for fundraising show

Young artists fight cancer The first of a planned annual series of variety show concerts will bring together young performers from White Rock, Surrey and Delta to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. Talents For A Cure, Saturday, Aug. 20, 7 p.m. at Earl Marriott Secondary’s Wheelhouse Theatre (15751 16 Ave.), will feature such emerging talents as Their There, Tommy Alto, Brett McCrady, Adam Olgui, Paula Cooper, Samantha Andrews, Julia Han and Hamza Zain. All of the performers are volunteering their services for the event, which will also featire baked goods, refreshments, a silent auction, raffle and 50/50 draw. Co-organizers are Andrews, herself a cancer patient now in remission, and fellow young performer Sabrielle McCurdy-Foreman. “This cause really hits home for me,” said Andrews,

who was diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia (a cancer of the blood and bone marrow) when she was five years old, and struggled with the disease for several years. “I am thrilled to finally be able to give back to the society that helped save my life, using my passion for the arts,” she said. Andrews and McCurdy-Foreman are encouraging businesses, organizations and others in the community to donate goods, services or money to support the cause. In addition to the support of the Canadian Cancer Society, the event has already received raffle items from Sandcastle Fitness, Harmony Expressive Arts and Cineplex Odeon Theatres. Tickets ($15, students and seniors $12) are avalable from 604-619-0236, or by emailing Talents. for.a.cure@gmail.com or calling 604-619-0236.

Do you know someone at risk of heart disease?

You may be surprised to learn that medical care outside of B.C. can be very expensive especially in the United States. For example, the average cost of emergency in-patient hospital care in the United States often exceeds $1,000 USD per day, and can even be as high as $10,000 USD per day for intensive care. And since Health Insurance BC (formerly MSP) may cover as little as 10 per cent of the medical expenses you could face when travelling outside B.C., the Ministry TRAVEL INSURANCE of Health Services WITH strongly advises LORI buying additional TAYLOR medical insurance even if you only plan to leave the country for one day.

It’s wise to check the Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada website at www.voyage. gc.ca. Select your destination and the Entry/Exit Requirements section will provide you with the travel insurance requirements. If you have confirmed coverage through your credit card or extended benefits program, be sure to obtain the proper documentation to meet the entry requirements of your destination(s).

INSURANCE OUTLOOK

Many B.C. residents already have limited travel insurance coverage through their credit card or employer extended benefits program. However, this coverage often doesn’t have a high enough dollar limit or cover you for the number of days per trip you require. Know before you go. Reviewing your travel insurance is increasingly important as some countries are now monitoring travellers’ coverage prior to crossing their borders. In fact, it was recently announced that several European countries are advising travellers to be prepared to show proof of medical coverage and may also impose a minimum coverage requirement.

Call 310-2345 or click on bcaa.com

Travel with peace-of-mind.

If you find that your current coverage is i n a d e q u a t e to completely protect you from the financial devastation an accident or injury could cause, investigate additional coverage like emergency excess medical insurance, to be protected and enjoy peace- of-mind during your travels. Remember to purchase your coverage before leaving B.C. Coverage is available through private insurers, such as BCAA, who offer at least five million dollars in emergency medical coverage. Always carry your declaration page with you when travelling as proof of your insurance coverage. For more information about travel insurance talk to your local BCAA Insurance Agent today.

Watts said after the ceremony that bringing Arts Umbrella to Surrey is in keeping with the city’s pro-arts stance, which includes initiatives to expand the South Surrey Recreation Centre to provide arts space, possible development of a new arts facility in South Surrey, a potential performing arts centre, and the recent opening of a renovated fire hall as the Newton Cultural Centre. “We’ve got a very vibrant arts community throughout the City of Surrey,” Watts said, “but it’s never gotten the profile it rightly deserves.” She said the city’s cultural plan has been emphasizing major funding for the arts at a time that other levels of government have been cutting back support. “We have the need for arts and culture, not just for the development of children, but also in economic development as well.” Among others present at the ceremony were musician and educator Sal Ferreras, chair of the Surrey task force for Arts Umbrella, Patty Sahota representing the board of directors of Westminster Savings Credit Union, which has made a three-year funding commitment to Arts Umbrella, and Bank of Montreal district manager Teresa McFadden, who announced a contribution of $150,000 to help back the Surrey expansion.

#103 - 1959 - 152 St. #10

At the close of the Canadian Open Sunday, tournament director Greg Timm, speaking from the podium, said the tournament would be remembered for two things: great performances on the field, and decidedly less-than-great weather. And two days after the tournament ended, Timm was quick to add one more memorable thing to the list: the volunteers. “What a great group of volunteers we had. Because of the weather, we had to reschedule the tournament four times in one day (on Thursday), and do it again on Saturday, and that meant we needed everybody,” he said. “When we needed them the most, they were there, all of them. They were resilient, high-spirited – lesser people would have packed it in and went home.” The weather was OK early in the tournament, which ran July 9-17, but got ugly by playoff weekend, as rain pushed the schedule further and further back into the night, and washed out entirely the consolation games in the Futures (under-19) and Showcase (under-16) divisions. “It was 24 out of 324 games we had to

no doubt affected by the inclement weather. For most games, the outfield bleachers – packed in previous years when Team Canada played – were sparsely populated. Still, Timm said he was “thrilled” with the way the tournament played out, and was equally as excited to say with certainty that it would be held again next year. In 2012, the Canadian

Open will be held June 30 to either July 8 or 9, and will serve as a lead-in to the women’s world fastpitch championships, which are in Whitehorse next year, and begin July 13. “We hope to be able to add more international teams next year, as they funnel their way through Vancouver and up to the world championships,” Timm said.

sports White Rock, Okanagan vie for final B.C. Premier League playoff spot

One-game showdown decides Tritons’ fate Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Russ Smithson would have preferred it not come to this, a one-game play-in game to break a tie for the last playoff spot, but since it has, there isn’t a team he’d rather play than the Okanagan Athletics. On Wednesday afternoon in Kelowna, the White Rock Tritons battled the A’s – who won a coin-toss for home-field advantage – for the eighth B.C. Premier Baseball League playoff seed. The two teams finished the ❝If there’s regular season with anybody we identical 23-25 records, have to play in and in four head-toa situation like head meetings – all this, we couldn’t played in April – each team won twice. have picked a Yesterday’s game was better team.❞ played after Peace Arch News’ press deadline. Russ Smithson For full results, visit Tritons coach www.peacearchnews. com and read next Tuesday’s print edition. “We’re really fired up,” Smithson, the Tritons’ head coach, said prior to the game. “If there’s anybody we have to play in a situation like this, we couldn’t have picked a better team – the boys will have no trouble getting up for this one.” The two teams certainly have a history, despite playing just four times early in the year, in which the aggregate score was just 7-6 in favour of White Rock. No, the rivalry was ramped up in early April when two Tritons, catchers Nathan Ackerman and Brandon Sonnenberg – whom Smithson expected to be big parts

At the time, Smithson refused to comment on the moves, except to say they left for “personal reasons.” “The boys are all friends – they text each other, email, but I think you’ll see from both sides that there’s something there… I know our guys would like nothing more than to send ‘em packing,” Smithson said. The Tritons find themselves in such a do-or-die predicament after going 2-2 in four games last weekend. The Tritons lost both ends of a rain-soaked doubleheader Saturday in Nanaimo, 5-2 and 3-1 against

the first-place Pirates, before bouncing back Sunday, winning twice at home against the Victoria Eagles, by 9-3 and 11-1 scores. The Tritons were also hurt by last week’s decision to vacate 12 wins by the Langley Blaze, who were penalized by the PBL for using two ineligible players. When the results of those 12 games were reversed, it added wins to the teams White Rock was battling with for a playoff spot. The Tritons didn’t benefit at all from the decision – the only time White Rock played Langley during those 12 games, the Tritons won. “It hurt us, definitely,” said Smithson.

The Tritons would have secured a playoff spot with one win over the Pirates, but were saddled with less-than-ideal conditions. “Saturday was just awful – it was absolutely pouring out, but we decided to play the games anyway, so we wouldn’t have to take another day off work, and make another trip to the Island to make the games up,” Smithson explained. “But the boys bounced back Sunday and played well. They were tough games though – we needed to win both, and I think the boys were pretty nervous.” They didn’t play nervous on the field, however. Pitcher Joel Lamont went seven innings in the first game, allowing just two earned-runs while striking out six, and Evan Douglas and Josh Sigurdson had three and two runs-batted-in, respectively. In Game 2, Josh Larsen led the way with two doubles and two RBI, and Jackson Temple also had his third triple of the season. Sigurdson also had a big day, going 2-for-3 with three stolen bases. Smithson wouldn’t tip his hand as to which pitcher he was going to start in Wednesday’s play-in game, saying “he hadn’t even told his players that yet.” All his pitchers are available, he said, with the exception of No. 1 Josh Larsen, who pitched six innings in Game 2 Saturday. “He’s questionable, because he pitched Saturday, but if we need him in relief, I know he’ll be ready, and I won’t hesitate for a second to put him in,” Smithson said. BCPBL playoffs begin this weekend, with four best-of-three series. The eighth seed – either White Rock or Okanagan – will play Nanaimo, who have locked up first-place.

sports Langleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Darren Wallace shoots seven-under par at Morgan Creek Golf Course

Four qualify for Canadian Open Gary Ahuja Black Press

Seven years ago, Darren Wallace was a wide-eyed teenager, rubbing shoulders with his golf heroes, as the youngest person to win the Canadian Amateur golf championship. That victory earned him an automatic berth into the 2004 Canadian Open. Starting Thursday (July 21) Wallace will once again have the opportunity to play with some of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best golfers. This time he enters the field as a professional golfer. The 22-year-old from Langley earned the chance thanks to a sparkling 7-under 65 on Monday at Morgan Creek Golf Club. His play earned him one of four exemptions into the RBC Canadian Open, which runs through the weekend, at Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club. The other three spots went to Red Deer amateur Mitch Evanecz, Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brad Fritsch and San Diego native Joshua Habig. South Surrey teenager Adam Svensson, who two weeks ago won his second straight B.C. Junior title, finished two strokes out of the running, carding a 69. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It sure felt like (home course advantage),â&#x20AC;? Wallace said, shortly before leaving for a practice round Tuesday at the site of the Open. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Travelling around the last few months, I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really settled down at home too much. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(So) to be able to play a golf course that I grew up playing a lotâ&#x20AC;Ś it really felt like I was playing a home tournament again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It brought back a lot of good memories.â&#x20AC;? Wallace had a sparkling junior career, and after graduating from Walnut Grove Secondary in 2006, he joined the University of Washington Huskies golf program. He graduated from the Seattle university in 2010 and is trying to settle into his pro career. From January to May of this year, Wallace was on the Arizona-based Gateway Tour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a bit of success down there,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Graig Abel/Golf Canada photo

Darren Wallace will be at the Canadian Open. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Essentially it was getting my feet wet as a pro.â&#x20AC;? A few months ago, he began playing on the Canadian Tour. Overall, he described his season as disappointing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be honest, I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really been playing up to the standards I hold for myself,â&#x20AC;? Wallace said. Last week at a Canadian Tour event in Winnipeg, Wallace made seven birdies on the tournamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second day. He still finished the round at even-par and missed the cut, but he gained confidence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact I was able to make those seven birdies gave me the confidence I was looking for,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To make seven birdies, you know your game isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that far away from taking a step in the right direction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Despite missing the cut, that (round) was probably the best thing that could have happened to me.â&#x20AC;? That confidence carried into Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s qualifying round. On the first hole, a 450-yard dogleg par-four, he hit his approach shot to within 15 feet of the pin, and then sank the uphill birdie putt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I looked over at my caddie, a good buddy of mine (Danny Jun) and smiled and said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;this could be a good day.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Wallace birdied three of the first five holes and shot eagles on both of the par-5s on the back nine. Having Jun â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whom he has known since their junior days â&#x20AC;&#x201D; on the bag was a big thing. So was the pairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s familiarity with the course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is someone who knows your game and knows you really well and can give you input,â&#x20AC;? Wallace explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes a world of difference, having that person there that keeps

you in that comfort level.â&#x20AC;? Back at the 2004

Canadian Open, Wallace shot rounds of 82 and 83 and missed the cut. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just loving t he fact that I was there,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had no expectations of doing anything, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I was going to make the cut as a 15-year-old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just there bigeyed, loving where I was at.â&#x20AC;? Some of his fond memories include Phil Mickelson giving him congratulations for

winning the Canadian Amateur, and sitting in the TSN booth with the commentators as Mike Weir and Vijay Singh battled for the tournament title. Singh would win in a playoff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Other than the way I played, it couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been a better week,â&#x20AC;? he recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meeting all the pros, being able to hang out with them, it was all great. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(But) this time, I hold myself to a different standard.â&#x20AC;?

Former White Rock resident Allan Simpson honoured for magazine

life in their shoes

Baseball pioneer heeds hall’s call Black Press

the line to the United States to print the magazine and to mail it to subscribers south of the border. He would eventually move to the heartland of baseball in America, setting up shop in Durham, North Carolina, home of minorleague Durham Bulls and surrounded by many other minor league operations and high school teams. “Baseball America became the publication geared toward the player development side of the game rather than the major league part of the game,” he said. “We really exposed our readers to a different part of the game and it really changed the way the game was covered.” Simpson maintained ownership of Baseball America until 10 years ago when he finally sold his holdings in the popular magazine. Then this year the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame came calling and years of hard work were rewarded as Simpson was called to the hall and inducted, alongside former Toronto Blue Jays closer Tom Henke and 19th century player George Wood.

“It’s certainly the greatest honour I’ve ever received,” he said. “It means so much because I’m a Canadian, I’ve always been a devout Canadian and this is a distinctly Canadian award. It’s Canada in every way shape or form and that has a very special meaning to me.” Simpson may have sold his holdings in Baseball America but he maintains a place in the game of baseball today. Now in his 60s, he calls himself semi-retired although he is part owner and an employee of Perfect Game, a baseball event and scouting service that puts on 60 to 80 baseball scouting showcases events each year. Gone are the weeks where he would spend hundreds of hours putting out a magazine, although he still keeps a busy schedule with Perfect Game. Looking back at his career Simpson is able to realize just what he created with Baseball American. “It is quite something to have done what I have done over the past 30 or so years,” he said. On the web: www. perfectgame.org and www. baseballamerica.com.

sports Last-inning loss White Rock’s Little League World Series dreams are over, after the team lost 5-4 to Langley Monday night at South Surrey Athletic Park, in the District 3 11/12 Majors championship game. White Rock was up 4-1 heading into the last inning, but starting pitcher Ty Westgard, having reached the Little League-mandated pitch count of 85, had to come out of the game. “And then we just couldn’t hold it together, couldn’t shut them down,” said head

coach Chuck Westgard. “It’s very tough, very tough for everybody.” Langley now advances to provincial championships in Victoria next week, while White Rock’s season is over.

JULY 21/2011

The way to a home buyer’s heart is through the kitchen

Kitchens still the centre of the home Everyone has heard the old saying that the kitchen is the heart of the home. With today’s emphasis on open spaces and entertaining, that is once again very true. When searching for a new home, Rick and Fiona Hickman were interested in a large kitchen that was open to a dining area and living room. They found one in Morningstar’s Avondale, on Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain. “From an entertaining point of view, that was very important,” says Rick. Fellow Avondale owners Claudine and Jeff Dixon agree. “The kitchen was what we fell in love with,” says Claudine. “It’s really open.” “The kitchen was the biggest draw-in,” adds Jeff, saying that entertaining was high on their list of priorities and the kitchens at Avondale

were just what they were looking for. “People love the big kitchens and big islands” at Surrey townhome development Sequoia, says Fairborne Homes general sales manager Rosalin Wang-Foong. Though a relatively recent addition to many kitchens, islands will give you increased counter space while also providing a place to sit for a casual meal or quick snack. With high-end features like glass-tile backsplashes and granite countertops becoming standard, the modern kitchen is not just functional but also beautiful. Gone are the days of the messy counters piled with gadgets, as homeowners welcome storage solutions that minimize clutter while also keeping everything to hand so you can perfect that cupcake or whip up a light family dinner.

‘There’s a real mix of ages ... that’s what makes a community’

Eclipse causing excitement in Delta by Kerry Vital

There’s a permanent light breeze at Eclipse, even as the sun gently heats your skin. Birds are chirping, and the laughter of children can be heard as soon as you step outside your door. As part of Polygon’s master-planned community of Sunstone in Delta, Eclipse is perfect for young families, older downsizers and professionals looking for their first home. Buyers of all ages are flocking to the project to purchase their own piece of airy, open paradise. “We have never seen so much excitement about living here,” says sales manager Sandra Bua. “There is such a sense of community and loving your neighbours.” The development opened for sale on June 11, with a first phase of 28 homes. Since the opening, 24 homes have been sold. “People were staying overnight here for two nights before the sale,” Bua says. The spacious townhomes in phase one come in one of three floorplans, all of which continue the astronomy theme with their names (Astral, Lunar

and Solar). Every home, ranging from 1,345 to 2,238 square feet with three or four bedrooms, includes plenty of space for families, entertaining or just a quiet romantic dinner. A popular feature? The enormous master bedrooms, all of which showcase either a large walk-in closet (some with a window) or an extra space perfect for a desk, loveseat or armoire for your shoe collection. Every ensuite includes a soaker tub with a separate shower, and marble countertops and dual sinks are standard. The largest floorplan available, the Lunar series, includes a recreation room on the bottom floor that is tailormade for a playroom, media room or office space. That layout has proven popular due to the shower downstairs, Bua says, which makes it perfect for hosting out-of-town guests or leaving teenagers to their own devices. Every room in the house feels indulgent and spacious. When the front or back door is open the breeze blows through quietly, making you feel

like a member of an exclusive resort community. That resort community atmosphere permeates the entire Sunstone development. Eclipse is the fifth project Polygon has built at Sunstone. The sense of community is never more apparent than when you take a walk down the gently curving street. “You see residents walking around with babies,” says Polygon VicePresident of Marketing Goldie Alam. “There is a real mix of ages ... that’s what makes a community.” Residents at Eclipse will be given access to the Sunstone Club, a 12,000 square-foot amenities building that includes an outdoor pool, a gym, a

fireside lounge with a billiards table, and much more. Sunstone Lake is currently being developed, alongside a playground, outdoor stage and several trails for walking or cycling. A shopping area near the club is also planned. “There isn’t anything comparable in this area,” says Alam. “Just look at what you get!” “Buyers are recognizing the incredible value,” says Bua. “They love the idea of the sense of community, and it’s a really safe neighbourhood.” Homes at Eclipse start at $429,900. For more information, visit www. polyhomes.com/community/eclipse, or call 604-588-8153.

People were staying overnight here for two nights before (we opened for sale),” says sales manager Sandra Bua.

The dining and living areas at Eclipse are spacious (above), while outdoors the landscaping perfectly complements the resort community atmosphere (left). Buyers will be able to spend warm days beside the outdoor pool at the Sunstone Club (top) or go for a walk or bike ride on the new trails around the entire development.

OBITUARIES

Gladys was born on Jul. 5, 1919 in Edgerton, Alberta. After a happy childhood on the farm in Edgerton, she moved to Edmonton, where she attended the University of Alberta, receiving her teacher’s degree; she taught school for several years and continued substitute teaching on and off throughout the years that followed. She married Gordon in 1943, her loving and devoted husband of 66 years, who she remained married to until his passing in 2009. Gladys was a generous, kind, considerate, and happy person. She was an avid bridge player who achieved Silver Life Master status in duplicate bridge, recognized by the American Contract Bridge League in 1993, a level of achievement enabling her to compete with the best players in the League. She also loved to square dance with Gordon. They spent many hours at the Legions in Alberta, British Columbia and Palm Springs dancing the evenings away. As well as the farm where she grew up, Palm Springs was another favourite place of hers, where she and Gordon had the good fortune of being able to spend 28 winters, a place where they welcomed family and friends to join them in enjoying the warm desert climate.

Gladys’ funeral service was held on Jul. 18/11 at Valley View Funeral Home in Surrey. In lieu of flowers, donations in Gladys’ memory made to the Alzheimer’s Society would be appreciated. “Those we love don’t go away, They walk beside us every day Unseen, unheard but always near, Still loved, still missed and very dear”

lifestyles Coltan Daniel is raising awareness of diabetes

A fundraising powerhouse Jennifer Lang Black Press

At age 2½, one of B.C.’s littlest insulindependent diabetics is also one of the biggest fundraisers around for an organization that’s helping find a cure. Coltan Daniel was just nine months old when he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2009. He nearly died while doctors frantically tried to figure out what was wrong. Fortunately, the staff at BC Children’s Hospital were able to save his life. Now, it’s up to Coltan’s family to manage his blood sugar levels, inject him with insulin, and manage his diet – every day. He’s “just a little guy”, mom Meaghan Norton Daniel says, so he requires constant blood checks throughout the day, and even every two to three hours at night. Failing to do so could result in seizures, coma or death – or might bring on longterm complications like blindness, kidney failure and loss of limbs.

Coltan Daniel, 2, is living with Type 1 diabetes. The insulin Coltan needs is not a cure, his family says, but lifesupport. But, they say, thanks to research and technological advances discovered by the Juvenile Diabetes Research

Foundation (JDRF), living with Type 1 diabetes is more manageable than it was 10 years ago. Last year, Team Kisses For Coltan – named for the soothing kisses he receives for the thou-

sands of painful fingerpokes he needs each year - raised $18,000 for the foundation, with Coltan leading the way. Coltan ended up being the top individual fundraiser for 2010. He was also awarded the top rookie award from the JDRF. Turns out, Team Coltan was just getting started. This year, the team’s set a goal of $20,000. On June 5, they held a movie night at the Clova Cinema in Cloverdale. The team is holding a cocktail gala evening at Belle’s Restaurant in South Surrey on July 23. Highlights include a photo booth, door prizes and auction. Items up for bid include a team signed Canucks jersey, Lions football and Whitecaps game packages, a war plane flight for two, a family photography session and much more. For information or for tickets, call 604-7219571 or email kissesforcoltan@shaw.ca.
