Friends, family mourn 18-year-old Jamie Kehoe

Good Samaritan stabbed to death Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Rows of flowers, a skateboard, pictures, a doll, a jersey and candles sit outside the place where Jamie Kehoe was stabbed to death just after midnight Friday, after he and a friend tried to stop a fight between two women and a man. Kehoe, 18, was stabbed after an altercation broke out on a bus near the intersection of 128 Street and 72 Avenue. Police said Kehoe, a Surrey resident, tried to intervene, only to be stabbed in the upper chest by one of the participants. He was taken to hospital, where he died. Investigators found a trail of blood, believed to be the suspect’s, running for blocks on the sidewalk along 128 Street. Police are now trying to secure surveillance footage that may help identify those responsible. Chelsea Jewell was at the roadside memorial to Kehoe Tuesday morning. Describing herself as “a friend of a friend,� Jewell said she’d heard Kehoe was a great guy, and felt extremely sorry for the loss. The slaying of young people is becoming far too common, Jewell added, noting in the last year Laura Szendrei, 15, was killed in Delta, Maple Batalia, 19, was shot dead in North Surrey, and now Kehoe, 18, was stabbed to death in Newton. “And they were all great people,� Jewell said. The roadside memorial contains several notes addressed to Kehoe. “Baby, you are one of the most amazing people ever,� wrote Richelle Day. “I will never forget you and the memories we shared. You’re always on my mind. I miss

everybody. The provincial government will be imposing tolls on all those who use the new Port Mann Bridge, starting next year. When that is coupled to the added gas tax, drivers in Surrey who use the new bridge will be paying substantially more to get to work each year. Yet they are getting little in return. While there will be transit service over the new bridge (after an absence of more than 25 years), many people will still have to drive. The amount of time it takes to transfer from buses to SkyTrain and back to buses precludes that as a viable option for many commuters. A member of our household is currently commuting by transit from Surrey to Burnaby. It takes more than two hours each way, daily. Many people simply haven’t got that much time in their daily schedules. One other thought went through my mind as I thought about this latest assault on taxpayers’ wallets: that the mayors most supportive of this tax boost are those who have minimal challenges in November’s election. Watts may well be elected by acclamation — as yet, she has no announced rival. Ferguson isn’t running again. Jackson, on the other hand, has three challengers seeking her job. ■ In last week’s column, I stated that RCMP members do not get overtime pay. I was incorrect — they do get paid overtime.

He also did not rule out running for office again, particularly once he retires. But he’d also like to see more new blood on council, he said. “One thing I’d like to do is urge more young people to get involved with municipal government – there is a role for them to play and they could influence the future of the city on a lot of things.”

Russ Hiebert to look ‘very closely’ at practices of organization receiving $6-million aid package

MP ‘skeptical’ about planned parenthood funds Alex Browne Staff Reporter

MP Russ Hiebert acknowledges he is among Conservatives with “pro-life” views who have reservations about the federal government’s decision to continue funding to the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF). But in an interview with the Peace Arch News last week, Hiebert (South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale) indicated he won’t go as far in criticizing the government as another Conservative backbencher, Brad Trost (Saskatoon-Humboldt) – who has openly broken ranks with the government in protest of the decision.

Opponents of the organization characterize it as a leading advocate and provider of abortions internationally, and question why Canada is planning on giving it $6 million as part of its foreign aid package. The government has said the money, provided over three years, would go only to IPPF projects in such countries as Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Mali, Sudan and Tanzania, where abortion is illegal. Opponents, however, say giving any funding to the organization contradicts the Harper government’s avowed position of not funding abortion around the globe.

But while Hiebert said he shares concerns with Trost, he wants to be sure the IPPF is not violating government conditions set on the funding. “Parliament, in its last session, set a very clear policy on the issue of foreign aid, and I expect that policy to be respected,” Hiebert said. “I am personally skeptical, given their (IPPF’s) history. “I’ll be looking very closely to see if they’re abiding by the guidelines.” Hiebert was responding to an open letter issued by Mike Schouten, Christian Heritage Party Canada candidate in his riding in this year’s federal election, who called on the

Russ Hiebert Conservative MP

Mike Schouten CHP

MP to take an “aggressive stance against your government’s assault on the unborn.” In the letter, Schouten said he finds it “disturbing that Canadian tax dollars are being given to the

world’s most prolific abortion provider.” Schouten suggested that providing $6 million to IPPF projects in countries where abortion is illegal merely frees the organization to spend the same amount funding abortions elsewhere. But while Hiebert said he respects Schouten’s views and his participation in the national debate in May’s election, he still wants to be sure the IPPF is playing by the rules set down. “That has yet to be seen,” he noted. “I’m a little bit skeptical about their participation in our foreign aid program.”

service education and retraining. “I don’t think the act (Veteran’s Charter) was malicious – it’s the unforseen consequences of it that we’re seeing,” Scott said. “I think there’s a denial right now.” Scott expressed his gratitude for Hogg’s support, noting it was the MLA’s suggestion to compare funding for disabled veterans with workers’ compensation cases. Hogg said he has no hesitation in supporting Equitas, both from knowing the Scotts, and from his conversations with veterans. “It’s a matter of values and principles – it doesn’t seem right to me, when they are fighting for our country and doing what we have asked them to do, “ he said. Hogg said he believes most Canadians would agree disabled soldiers deserve “at least” the same benefits as injured workers. Scott acknowledges that some feel that most soldiers have served only a couple of years and “just because a soldier got shot, they shouldn’t be winning the lottery.” But Scott said he feels there is a standard of care for the injured that is universal across Canada. “The question is, why the military has been able to evade that standard of care,” he said, adding that people will be able to judge for themselves when they meet disabled veterans Friday. “They’ll be showing people they haven’t won the lotto,” he said.

Scott said that, as the result of his own personal appeal, the national law firm Miller Thomson has agreed to take this issue to the courts on a pro-bono basis, even though the Veterans Charter section on Crown liability prevents soldiers going into courts to seek redress. “We believe the Canadian Charter of Rights has supremacy over other acts,” Scott said. Scott said the firm is prepared to launch a class-action suit on behalf of the veterans, but prior to deciding the legal approach is still researching soldiers’ claims from across the country. “So far, they’re discovering the same thing we have, that there’s a great discrepancy,” he said. He noted that while the federal government’s Bill C-55 amending the Veterans Charter made adjustments to compensation for the most severely injured, the discrepancy seems to hold true in most cases. As well as raising awareness, Equitas is intended to raise money to provide legal disbursement funds for soldiers and provide support while they are awaiting the outcome of legal actions. He said the fact is that most recently-disabled veterans – except for the most severe cases – are struggling because they are having to support themselves while paying for their own post-

A new White Rock-based organization – Equitas – says Canada’s recently disabled soldiers are being shortchanged by the federal government. Chaired by former Conservative Electoral District Association president Jim Scott – whose own son Dan is a disabled veteran as a result of a second tour of duty in Afghanistan in 2010 – Equitas has been formed to provide crucial interim funding for veterans while legal services to ensure fair compensation go forward. “Starting in 2006 with the new Veterans Charter, newly disabled Canadian soldiers receive a lump sum payment in lieu of a disability pension,” Scott explained. Federal lump sum payments to disabled veterans provide only a fraction of what federal employees or provincial workers would receive given the same injuries, he said. The organization is campaigning to level the field, he added – hence the name of the society, ‘equality’ in Latin. Equitas will hold its first fundraising event Friday (Oct. 14), 7:30 p.m. at Hazelmere Golf and Tennis Club. For a $25 donation, participants can sample hors d’oevres, listen to entertainment and bid on auction items. It will also feature an video presentation and a chance to meet some of the veterans whose lives can be helped significantly by supporting the organization. The event will be MC’d by Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg, who said he is concerned with the issue. “That inequity doesn’t fit with what my values say,” he said. Although cases differ, Jim Scott offered one example of the monetary impact for veterans. “A soldier who has had a fair amount of internal trauma and lost multiple organs would receive a $41,000 lump sum,” he said. “With an annuity purchased in this amount, the soldier would receive $141 per month. But if the same person was a provincial worker, or a logger or a tree-faller covered by our WorkSafe program… that person would receive $1,400 per month, tax free. Why is it so different?”

Time for Clark to take a TV timeout

L

ike many politicians, Premier Christy Clark has never met a TV camera she didn’t like. She took her zeal for the lens to new levels when she suggested during the throne speech that television cameras should be allowed into courtrooms during the trials of those charged in the Stanley Cup riots. Clark said since they had no problem doing their crimes before the cameras, they would have no problem with their trials being in front of cameras, a statement that had some wondering if she hadn’t already convicted them before their day in court. Naturally, the New Democrats jumped on her suggestion. Burnaby-Deer Lake MLA Kathy Corrigan, the party’s public safety critic, called Riot TV a gimmick. The premier insisted her suggestion wasn’t a political stunt because opening up the courts is part of opening up government. That may be the case, but her suggestion is arbitrary. If courtrooms are to be open to television cameras, is this not a change that should be debated in the legislature and other public forums? Cameras in the courtroom would constitute a major shift in justice policy in this country. The United States has allowed them for decades. There are many who believe it’s been a good thing because it’s made the justice system accountable. Others believe the cameras bring an artificially high level of melodrama that subverts the justice process. Theoretical logic aside, there is also the financial cost such a system would impose on a government already strapped to pay for basics like health, education and enough judges to keep the court system moving. Prosecuting the rioters is a hot button topic in these parts, and Clark recognizes that. However, her suggestion smacks of attempting to endear herself to the electorate without carrying out the proper process to make the change. Allowing cameras in the courtroom is worth debating. If adopted it should be implemented with forethought and planning, and not arbitrarily.

yes 47% no 53% 146 responding You still play hockey, Mike? Bottom line is, it’s discrimination. And likely just another government money grab. Gotta find the money to repay the federal government because de Jong’s Liberals brought in a tax they said they wouldn’t bring in before the election, right? Gotta pay back for something no one wanted in the first place – and they proved that at the polls. Maybe the Liberals should put out more attack ads saying their opponents are untrustworthy. Thing is, once you start with the smokers, where does it end? Perhaps other addicts will be targeted first. But once one personal choice is attacked, it opens the door to all personal choices being attacked. No one wants that. Or things like invasive health checks to ensure whether people are actually smokers or not … or is it just the honour system? If so, effective much? De Jong would be wise to drop such a discriminatory idea and focus on being safe on the road while he rides his motorcycle, a behaviour many believe is risky and irresponsible. Of course, donating organs would be a much better way to support the healthcare system than targeting addictive behaviour.

Ignoring the messenger Editor: Re: Building heights ‘key to city’s viability.’ Sept. 22. If White Rock city councillors like Lynne Sinclair aren’t willing to accept the findings of independent consultants, what’s the point in commissioning them? Could it be because these findings fly in the face of the reason that she, and a few of her fellow councillors, were elected to office in the first place? This isn’t the first time an outside consultant has indicated the best way to ensure White Rock’s long-term viability as a city is to increase its population density in the town centre. The previous city administration laid the groundwork for private enterprise to facilitate this objective. The process then became bogged down primarily due to global economic uncertainty. The present results of a long-term process that’s still in the early stages of implementation can hardly be considered indicative of the end result, and for Sinclair to suggest this is as ridiculous as it is self-serving. Glen Gerow, Surrey

Teachers paid to do entire job Editor: While I understand the ‘job action’ being taken by our teachers, I ask: is it doing right by our children? A few observations: • Parent/teacher meetings are not being held. I understand that the teachers are proving a point by refraining from administrative duties. Imagine, though, if your child was having difficulty in the classroom. As a parent, I need to know this – the earlier the better. Otherwise, my child is at risk of falling behind, and having a very negative impact on their learning. • Report cards may not be issued? Again, how do I know if my child needs help, and how do I get them the help they need if I am unaware? Some children are embarrassed or afraid to tell someone that they need help. It is the responsibility of the teaching professional to notify parents so that they may assist their child in getting the help they need. I am a working professional, and if I were to go to my boss and request a raise or a change in working conditions – and they say “no” – I have a few options. I can look for a new job or decide to accept what is. However, if I continue to work, for the same pay, I am expected to fulfill all my duties or risk termination. If the teachers are getting their regular pay during ‘job action,’ shouldn’t they be expected to do their entire job, including parent/ teacher meetings, report cards, field trips, etc.? Just my two cents, but it seems to me that our children are the ones that are really being impacted by this job action. Karen Bodenheimer, White Rock

Linda Klitch – with Betty Anne Peers and Pat Hill – on one of many visits dropping off gift cards at the food bank.

Individuals can make a difference Editor: Re: Our community loses a champion, Sept. 29. Despite my recent retirement as manager of Sources White Rock South Surrey Food Bank, spurred on by the sudden death and great loss of Peace Arch News publisher Linda Klitch, I am compelled to reiterate appreciation for the long-term and ongoing support of this newspaper to its community food bank. As a member of White Rock/South Surrey Community Foundation, Linda was the Christmas Fund’s compassionate and tenacious driving force in generating funds for the purchase and distribution of gift certificates to food-bank registrants during the month of December. These coupons enabled community members living on a low income to purchase food and perhaps even a small gift for their children in celebration of the holiday season. Their gratitude for this extra support at a particularly stressful time of the year was immense. Solid and reliable support provided by other Peace Arch News staff was continuous throughout the year – year after year. The newspaper’s editors and reporters – in particular Tracy Holmes – have ‘heartfully’ responded to various requests from Sources Food Bank to publish articles, many of which have raised awareness about the existence of poverty in our community and reflected its impact on those who struggle to make ends meet. Through the use of press written by caring reporters, along with the images of PAN photographers, critical messages were well-conveyed about the needs of others, and the ways in which we can respond to reduce food insecurity, emphasizing the importance of nutritious food donations to the food bank and the effectiveness of monetary donations, which enable the food bank to purchase whole, fresh nutritious food – from local farmers when possible – for distribution to clients. In addition, articles based on interviews with individuals who have relied on the food bank revealed their stories in a humane – rather than a statistical – way, reflecting personal experience in context to the multiple obstacles these individuals face, thereby furthering understanding necessary to dissolve and unravel the many assumptions, myths and misconceptions about people who use food bank services. With its ability to reach thousands, the press is a powerful tool to inform and transform. The food bank – entirely sustained by generosity – has greatly appreciated the significant role of the press to raise awareness, maintain support and thank its generous donors. We are deeply grateful to Linda Klitch for her effective leadership as publisher, and for her dedication and caring contributions to this community. Many thanks to everyone at Peace Arch News for your ongoing efforts to inform and support your community. Ruth Chitty, Surrey Q

We lost Linda Klitch Sept. 26. This determined young woman succumbed to the greatest force we must all face. I am quite sure that had she known, Linda would have met the realization with the full dignity of her elegant personality – the look, the questioning, the arguable acceptance of the inevitable – propelled by the kindness of heart and resolution of commitment for which she clearly performed and sought for this city and its people. Linda was part of this world and that same world has suddenly grown smaller, and we are at a loss. Mary-Wade Anderson, White Rock councillor Q I was deeply saddened to learn of the untimely passing of the much loved and highly respected Linda Klitch. The community has indeed lost a champion, and we have all lost a true friend. Pam Glass, Surrey school trustee Q It was obvious to many of us at the Peace Arch News when Linda Klitch first arrived at our office in 2000 as our new publisher that we had scored big time. A boss whose ability to immediately put others at ease was demonstrated from the get-go, and as the years passed we grew to admire and respect the many other talents she possessed. Central to knowing Linda was observing her innate kindness. It went beyond mere thoughtfulness into the realm of genuine warmth, caring and concern for all her staff. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. With surgery looming and an uncertain diagnosis, Linda helped make my transition into the unknown easier to bear. As I recovered, she made time to visit me at home with a gift basket from our co-workers tailored just for me, encouraging me to stay positive. She included me in our local Nite of Hope 2010 breast cancer fundraiser, for which I was so grateful to be part of, a community of determined citizens working hard to beat this disease. Linda had deep compassion for others, a bright spirit with tons of character visible to all who knew her. In many workplace relationships, sensitivity to the requirements of each department is not easily accomplished, and is often the nature of the beast in our deadline-driven business. But Linda worked very hard to make our cohesive team even more so, through her ability to bring people together. We knew how lucky we were to have her in our lives and in our work – she made every day seem easier. Even those private lunchoom conversations she’d occasionally have with us made us feel more connected to our jobs, and each other. Linda was a gifted leader; there wasn’t much you could throw at her that she couldn’t sort out with perseverance, dignity and grace. We were almost the same age, Linda and I, and I feel so privileged for having known her. Leslie Hilts, Peace Arch News creative services

went over the $3,000, to which Clark replied “both.” In voicing her opposition to OK the funds, Coun. Lynne Sinclair recalled the approval of a similar request by the previous council in December 2007. At that time, a decision was made to reimburse then-councillor Matt Todd for funds spent attending the Walk 21 Conference in Toronto that fall. At the time of the conference, Todd had $1,327.57 left of his $3,000 allocation. Council agreed to apply the balance of the allocation to the tab, and reimburse Todd $1,162.27 out of council expenses. “It was not well-received by the citizens of White Rock,” Sinclair recalled. Coun. Al Campbell also recalled the 2007 decision. He remembered being in council chambers as a citizen during the meeting. “I was quite astonished… when he got it,” Campbell said. Ferguson noted McLean had previously suggested the expense policy be reviewed, a move she supports. She described last week’s decision as “not a fun part of the job.” Prior to excusing himself from the discussion, McLean assured council “either way, I will hold no hard feelings.”

Missing U.S. children found at border Two children reported missing in the U.S. six months ago were located at the Douglas border last Thursday, when officers intercepted a man travelling with his two minor children. Canada Border Services Agency spokesperson Erin Steeksma said a 33-year-old man was turned over to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials after he failed to provide proof of full custody of the children he was travelling with.

The man told border officers he was moving to Alaska with the children, and presented officers with multiple documents, Steeksma said. However, the documents failed to prove custody, and further checks determined the man is the subject of a Domestic Violence Protective Order, Steeksma said. A check of the National Criminal Information Centre revealed the children were reported missing last May.

The ADDED Touch

They were returned to the U.S. and placed in the care of child protection officials there. Their mother was also notified, Steeksma said, noting CBSA has to date reunited 1,650 missing or abducted children with their legal guardians.

Small home one of the last in historic Douglas neighbourhood

Cottage demolition a ‘closing of an era’ Alex Browne

M

Staff Reporter

ichael Bugera wasn’t expecting to go down in the books as the last resident of the historic border community of Douglas. But as the last renter of the distinctive dark salmon-pink cottage at 16881 Peace Park Dr. – the last surviving vestige of old Douglas – Bugera has come to realize the honour is his. “It’s the closing of an era,” he said of the impending demolition of the house he’s called home for the last eight years. “I have a lot of good memories of being there. It always had such a good energy in it; it was always so homey.” Bugera, who works as a set dresser in the film and television industry, and is best known locally for his ❝It always had extravagantly detailed community theatre such a good productions, also did energy in it; it weekend maintenance was always so work at Peace Arch Park during his homey.❞ residence on Peace Michael Bugera Park Drive. resident But he has no rancour about leaving (he’s moving to Ladner) or the current owner’s decision to demolish the cottage and build a new home on the quarter-acre lot. In truth, while the house is historic, it wouldn’t really qualify for preservation as a local monument. “There’s no real reason to save it,” Bugera said of the house, which was, by contemporary standards, built flimsily without a proper foundation. “It’s up on blocks, on clay, which is really spongy and porous,” he said. “When trains would go by the whole house would move and roll – you could feel it. I really miss the trains at 1:30 in the morning!” Nobody knows quite how old the building is – it’s been around much longer than long-term residents of Peace Park Drive like John Bowen, who has lived there for 28 years. “It’s definitely one of the last survivals of Douglas,” he said.“I’d say it was built roughly 80 years ago. My own home was built by a customs officer, a Mr. Pearson, 55 years ago. Everybody here was here to stay.” Neighbour John Kageorge said his research has shown the house is one of the

Most, including the infamous St. Leonard Hotel – decried by the citizens of Blaine in the early 1900s for corrupting its youth with liquor and other diversions – were torn down and cleared away during the development of Peace Arch Park in the 1930s.  see page 12

House once served as coffee shop  from page 11 “Before there was a White Rock, for the land barons of New Westminster, Douglas was the oasis,” Kageorge said, adding he has heard rumours that some of the ‘ladies’ who plied their trade around the St. Leonard had their cottages in the vicinity. “The area was forgotten by Surrey for over 80 years, until recently, when it became a cash cow,” he said, referring to a current building boom of townhouses only blocks away on 172 Street. Bugera said he understood the old house was originally the area’s general store. “I heard there was a store there and the building was painted red and white as long as anyone can remember,” he said. The first records of the house in White Rock Museum’s archives say it was built by hand in 1940 by popular local character Esther ‘Ma’ Crosfield and her neighbour Charlie Asbeck, as the premises for Crosfield’s Peace Arch Coffee Shop. She ran it for more than a decade, until it was bought in 1952 by a baker from Barkerville, Louis Hayd, who extended the building to add a bakery to the coffee shop operation. In 1964, when Hayd’s health was failing, the building was converted to a house. But it seems likely, from the style of the building and internal evidence, that it had

originally started life as a cottage and was converted to a shop by Crosfield. “The floorboards came from the Semiahmoo mill,” Bugera said. “They’re first-cut fir, beautiful floors.” Since the mill was in operation only from 1913 to 1927, that would suggest the house was originally built in that period. “The outside hadn’t been altered much, but the inside had been altered a lot,” Bugera said. “You could see by the lines on the floor, and where they crisscrossed, there had been a lot more rooms in the house.” Aside from a grainy photograph in a faded newspaper article by former Peace Arch News columnist Margaret Lang Hastings, the oldest photograph on file with the Museum is dated 1965 – “but that seems awfully late given the look of the car in it,” said archives manager Hugh Ellenwood. Advertising signs in the photo also seem to date from the period when Hayd took over the operation in the early 1950s. Bugera said he had a sentimental interest in Hayd’s link to Barkerville, since that was where he first began his theatre career in the early 1970s. “It was a fascination connection for me to live in the house of the baker from Barkerville, since after I left school I went straight to Barkerville to do shows,” he said.

Japan relief gets local help Sarah Massah Black Press

A silent auction and bonsai sale in South Surrey raised $7,000 in five hours Oct. 1 for victims of the Japan tsunami. More than 800 people came to the event, which was hosted by Japan Bonsai Garden Art at 16164 24 Ave., and included demonstrations by expert Japanese gardeners, including a bonsai workshop, flower arrangements and Japanese black pine shaping. Takaaki Yamaura, who organized the event, had been planning the auction and sale

ever since the tsunami hit Japan. Immediately after the natural disaster hit, there was an abundance of media coverage and support but that slowly tapered off, Yamaura said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although it is no longer on the front page of the newspaper or broadcast on the news, Japan is still in desperate need of our assistance,â&#x20AC;? said Yamaura. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have a very long road ahead of them.â&#x20AC;? Volunteers worked tirelessly to bring the event together, which also had support from local businesses and community members, said Yamauraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

daughter, Natalie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody was really supportive, especially the volunteers. Many were personally affected because their families are close to Japan,â&#x20AC;? Natalie said. The money will be going through the Japanese consulate to get to Japan, said Yamaura. Highlights of the evening included traditional Japanese entertainment, live music and guest of honour, Hideki Ito, the consul general of Japan. Yamaura said the group plans to make this a yearly event and beat their record each year.

And this year isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any different. The charitable organization needs about 8,000 sq. ft. of space, preferably with a loading bay and indoor plumbing, so that it can assist those in need prior to the holidays.

There will be plenty of scary sights at the Potters House of Horrors, which opens Friday.

House of Horrors opens Potters Nursery is once again being transformed into a ghoulish haunted house. Starting Friday (Oct. 14), Potters House of Horrors, at 12530 72 Ave., is inviting thrill-seekers to visit such freaky destinations including Camp Dread, Seven Gates to Hell and Med-Evil Times. Potter’s Ghoul Crew has been working away at the haunted

house for months, with an aim to make it perfectly petrifying. “We started building the House of Horrors in August,” said Cam Martin, who heads the crew. “Guests can expect lots of new effects, sets and scares.” For those not up for a fullblown tour of terror, the first hour of the event will start off with a static run – without actors or moving displays and a quieter

sound display. The spooky residence will be open until Halloween, but Martin encourages people to come early to avoid a lengthy wait in line. For those interested in skipping the line, a few extra dollars will buy a Speed Pass. For more information, visit www.pottershouseofhorrors.com or call 604-542-7706.

Last days for Cloverdale corn maze There’s just a few days left to take in one of the highlights of the fall season – the Bose Corn Maze in Cloverdale.

The final day is Oct. 16. The maze is open from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, from 6 to 8:30

p.m. Friday, from noon to 8 p.m. Saturday and from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. Admission (cash only) is $6.75 for adults, $5.50 for youth aged 6 to 18, $5.50 for seniors, $2.50 for five-year-olds and $22.50 for a family of four. Children four and younger are free.

Tamanawis Secondary, Forsyth Road Elementary receive grants

TIRED OF LOW RETURNS? Surrey schools get band aid Find out what over 8,700 investors already know

Surrey music students can play the blues, but they don’t have to feel them, thanks to MusiCounts. The Canadian charity has awarded “Band Aid” grants totalling $15,000 to Tamanawis Secondary and Forsyth Road Elementary to help the two schools enhance and expand their music education programming. Tamanawis, which has grown its music program from near extinction a few years ago to a thriving repertoire of band, guitar and choral students, will use the school’s $10,000 grant to replace some concert band equipment and introduce new instruments that will appeal to the broader school population.

“We want to go further and push the boundaries of our music program,” said Tamanawis principal Margaux Molson. “The funds will be used to introduce a drumline to our students and bring in percussion instruments from all around the world. Prepare to be amazed by the expansion of our music program!” Only 80 schools across Canada received Band Aid grants, and Molson said she is thrilled the organization recognized the value of the Tamanawis program. Not only has the school’s music program expanded, it’s given rise to extracurricular jazz and musical theatre programs. At Forsyth Road Elementary, where world music is exception-

ally popular, the $5,000 grant from MusiCounts will also help pay for new types of instruments so students can learn to perform the music they already love. Principal Carol Davison credits music teacher Darryl Penner, who also teaches at Bridgeview Elementary, for inspiring in his students an appreciation for a wide variety of music. “It’s a national competition, so we feel like we’re ‘the little school that could.’” MusiCounts is a registered charity whose mission is to ensure that Canadian children have access to comprehensive music programs through their schools regardless of socio-economic circumstances.

South Surrey Smiles celebrates Grand Opening of their new ofďŹ ce!

Black Press

The Semiahmoo Bottle Depot is now accepting expired and used smoke and carbon monoxide alarms for recycling as part of a new province-wide program that kicked off right before Fire Prevention Week. The program, called AlarmRecycle, launched on Oct. 1 in response to B.C. recycling regulations which require manufacturers to have take back and recycling programs for certain products. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prior to this program there was no recycling program for them anywhere in the province - they were just added to the landfill,â&#x20AC;? said Jordan Best, the program co-ordinator. Now, South Surrey and White Rock residents can drop off their used and expired alarms to the depot, which is located at 15515 24 Ave., where the metal and plastic material is sorted and then sent to a recycler to be recovered and sold back as material, said Best. During Fire Prevention Week, which runs from Oct. 9 to Oct. 15, the program will be advertised with help

AlarmRecycle is a non-profit program funded entirely by recycling fees which have been applied to the sale of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in the province, said Best. At the beginning of this month, B.C. applied a $1.20 recycling fee to the sale of a new smoke alarm and combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and a 60-cent charge for carbon monoxide alarms. There are more than 20 different facilities around the province that will now be recycling the alarms.

A CertiďŹ ed Specialist in Orthodontics, Dr. Williams is an active leader in the orthodontic community. She is a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontists. She is the immediate past president of the PaciďŹ c Coast Society of Orthodontist, which represents the orthodontists in the eight western United States and three western Canadian provinces. Dr. Williams treats patients of all ages, including adults. She says that the American Association of Orthodontists recommends children be evaluated by a certiďŹ ed orthodontist by the age of seven.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We ďŹ nd that an early evaluation helps us identify potential orthodontic problems early,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can then perform interceptive treatment, which typically helps reduce the complexity of problems later, and gives us time to get to know our patient families and to educate them as we see them over time.â&#x20AC;?

BC Hydro will begin upgrading homes and businesses with new smart meters. Moving to a more efďŹ cient, modernized grid will create immediate savings for you, and it will help us all enjoy safe, reliable, and more affordable power for decades to come.

Pair honoured for classic car know-how T

wo Surrey classic car experts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; restorer, appraiser and author Harvey McEwen and legendary custom-car upholsterer Arnie Schwab â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were honoured Sunday with inductions by the Greater Vancouver Motorsports Pioneers Society (GVMPS). The 11th annual ceremony â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an afternoon of history and camaraderie â&#x20AC;&#x201C; took place at Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Croatian Cultural Centre. Cars McEwen has restored over the years include a 1930 Packard 745 phaeton, a 1953 Mercedes 300 S roadster, a 1947 Ford Sportsman woody convertible, a Ferrari GT 330 GT 2+2, a Jaguar E-Type roadster, a 1969 Plymouth GTX Hemi convertible, a 1970 Plymouth Superbird, a 1929 Packard Larkins convertible sedan and a 1953 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon. A leading authority on classic cars, McEwen has spent six decades involved in every facet of the classic car hobby. Schwab was a teenager when he started doing pick-ups and deliveries for a Vancouver auto upholstery company, which led to him learning the craft of restoring seats, carpets and tops for automobiles, custom cars, hot rods, boats and airplanes. Over the next 40 years, the master upholsterer has been working with collectors and

The GVMPS ceremony honoured 15 individuals who made major contributions in the early days of motorsports in the region. This includes hot rodding, custom-car building, drag and land-speed racing, sports car and

road racing, motorcycling and power boat racing, as well as car collecting and restoration. Keynote speakers were Rock and Roll Hall of Fame disc jockey Red Robinson, a one-time member of the Igniters Car Club, and Redâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uncle, Chuck Robinson from Surrey, the first president of the

BC Custom Car Club. The GVMPS, which has already inducted 165 pioneers, is a group of enthusiasts from various motorsports organizations whose goal is to recognize and record the accomplishments of people who have made major contributions, beginning four decades ago.

Other pioneers recognized this year were Bob Underhill and Alec Bennett for motorcycling; John Carlson for collector and restoration; Taylor, Soon and McNicol Racing Team; Bill Phillips and Roger Manson for hot rod, custom car and drag racing; and Tom Burgess, Taisto Heinonen and Leslie and Kevin Skinner for sports car road racing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is important to recognize the people involved in motorsports activities that started years ago and continue today,â&#x20AC;? says GVMPS president Jim Greenwood, a pioneer custom-car striper and race organizer.

Trail improvements unveiled Friends of Semiahmoo Bay Society will unveil nearly 100 educational signs Sunday (Oct. 16) on the Little Campbell River trail, 1284 184 St. The society, in conjunction with the Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club and Little Campbell Hatchery, put up 80 plant-identification signs and 13 large habitat signs, as well as completed trail improvements and

planted native trees and shrubs. Society officials say the trail project will increase wildlife habitat and offer visitors a more enjoyable and interesting nature walk with new learning opportunities – especially for the numerous school groups that visit the site to release salmon fry into the river each year. – Sarah Massah

Announcement After conducting an extensive search, Peace Arch Toyota is proud to announce the hiring of Mr. Oswald Wong to the position of Service Manager.

Photo illustration by Gaetan Royer

Aerial view of the Port Mann Bridge before (left) and after a possible transformation into green space (right). was saved from demolition and transformed into a popular linear park and public space. A transportation ministry spokesperson was unable to provide estimates of annual maintenance costs of the bridge or the estimated price tag to demolish it. The demolition cost is built into the new span’s construction cost. The spokesperson said alternative uses were never considered because the existing approaches must be dismantled to make way for the lanes accessing the new bridge. The green space concept was raised by Gaetan Royer, Metro’s new manager of metropolitan planning, regional parks and environment. Royer urged the parks committee to “think big” in considering new ways to expand and enhance the regional parks system, potentially by looking at Vancouver’s viaducts and other highways, overpasses or freeway ramps that might otherwise be torn down. He stressed he’s not proposing a green conversion of the Port

Mann nor has Metro studied the idea. Royer offered it merely as “food for thought.” He was also inspired by the High Line in New York. “They put a layer of dirt on top and some pavers and it’s just a gorgeous elevated park,” Royer said. The High Line isn’t contiguous – it’s broken up in places where the original viaduct was torn down. Likewise, Royer said, even if the main span of the Port Mann is torn down, one or both approach ramps could be kept. “You could have a lookout over the water that creates access at a place that’s regionally significant and could possibly be turned into a tourist attraction,” he said. “A park does not neccessarily have to be the traditional piece of land somewhere. As density increases, we need to learn to do things differently.” Parks committee chair Gayle Martin lauded Royer for “thinking outside the box” and said it’s a concept worth discussing.

Mr. Wong has many years experience, most of which has been in the South Surrey / White Rock area. Oswald told us, “My focus has always been on Customer Service. Keeping your Toyota well maintained with genuine Toyota parts will keep it running well for many years to come.” The Management and Staff at Peace Arch Toyota would like to take this opportunity to welcome Oswald to the Peace Arch Toyota family. Next time you are at Peace Arch Toyota please feel free to introduce yourself to Mr. Wong.

Imagine an aerial park perched above the Fraser River featuring two kilometres of trees and green space with meandering pedestrian paths and a public plaza in the middle. It’s an alternate vision for the Port Mann Bridge, which is now slated to be demolished once the new 10-lane toll bridge rising beside it opens just over a year from now. The idea of saving the old bridge as a unique park was quietly floated by a Metro Vancouver manager at a regional parks committee meeting last month. SFU City Program director Gordon Price rates it a long shot – but a fascinating one. “Wow – that would be spectacular,” he said. “I love the idea. It’s just so audacious and jawdropping to think of what the possibilities might be.” Tempting as it is, Price said, it probably won’t happen. The provincial government has always said the existing bridge must be torn down to eliminate the ongoing maintenance costs. Victoria is also determined to tear down the old bridge so there’s no way it could ever re-open as a free crossing for motorists in competition with the toll bridge. Cycling and pedestrian lanes will also be provided on the new bridge, so keeping the old one might be considered redundant. Still, Price thinks the park idea merits a look. “People love this stuff,” he said. “If it’s going to cost a lot to tear it down there might be an argument to leave it for now. Maybe it could be done over time. “People might look back in 50 or 60 years and say this was a stroke of genius.” Old bridges and railway viaducts have been turned into elevated parks elsewhere in the world. Paris has the Promenade Planteé, the world’s first elevated parkway. New York has the High Line Park, a similar rail viaduct in Manhattan that

Two more groups have pulled out of the Missing Women Inquiry, citing the provincial government’s refusal to pay for lawyers. Amnesty International and the B.C. Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) said last week that they will not participate when hearings begin in Vancouver Oct. 11. Several other public interest groups representing women or aboriginals that had been granted standing before the inquiry previously refused to participate. Critics say lawyers must be provided for groups representing vulnerable women if they are to put tough questions to police and government officials on why it took so long to catch serial killer Robert Pickton. Otherwise, they say, the inquiry is stacked in favour of the authorities, who will be well-defended by publicly funded lawyers when called to testify. “This Commission of Inquiry is grappling with critical concerns about access to justice and human rights

protection for some of the most marginalized communities in the province,” Amnesty International Canada representative Alex Neve said. “But it is going forward in a manner that only adds to that longstanding sense of exclusion and discrimination.” Neve said the organization could not stay on board and send the signal it supports the process. “We are going to dedicate our efforts to processes where calls for respect and voices of concern can be heard,” added Robert Holmes, lawyer with the BCCLA. Commissioner Wally Oppal had fought for increased funding from Victoria but was unsuccessful. The inquiry ended up reshuffling its budget to hire four lawyers to represent various interests, a move opponents call inadequate. The government has “lavished all its resources on one side – that of the police and bureaucrats,” Holmes said. Some of the families and friends of Pickton’s victims are worried the inquiry will be hampered in its search for answers.

What’s the best way to protect your family from fire? Be ahead of the game, of course. With more than 360,000 home fires reported in the United States in 2009, according to the nonprofit National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), your best defense is a good offense. That’s why White Rock’s Fire Department is teaming up with NFPA during the October 9-15, 2011, to let our community know: “It’s Fire Prevention Week. Protect your Family from Fire!” This year’s campaign focuses on preventing the leading causes of home fires -- cooking, heating and electrical equipment, as well as candles and smoking materials. Additionally, it urges people to protect their homes and families with life-saving technology and planning. “In 2009, 2,565 people died in home fires. Nearly all of these deaths could have been prevented by taking a few simple precautions like having working smoke alarms and a home fire escape plan, keeping things that can burn away from the stove and always turning off space heaters before going to bed,” says Bob Schlase, Deputy Fire Chief of the White Rock Fire Rescue Department. “Fire is a dangerous opponent, but by anticipating the hazards, you are much less likely to be one of the nearly 13,000 people injured in home fires each year.” White Rock Fire Rescue Department offers the following tips for protecting your home and family from fire: • Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling, or broiling food. If you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove. • Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from heating equipment, like the furnace, fireplace, wood stove, or portable space heater. • Have a three-foot “kid-free zone” around open fires and space heaters. • Replace or repair damaged or loose electrical cords. • If you smoke, smoke outside. • Use deep, wide ashtrays on a sturdy table.

• Blow out all candles when you leave the room or go to bed. Avoid the use of candles in the bedroom and other areas where people may fall asleep. “While preventing home fires in White Rock is always our number one priority, it is not always possible,” Deputy Chief Schlase continued. “White Rock’s residents need to provide the best protection to keep their homes and families safe in the event of a fire. This can be achieved by developing an escape plan which you practice regularly and equipping homes with lifesaving technologies like smoke alarms and home fire sprinklers.” The following tips will help keep your family safe if there is a fire in your home: • Install smoke alarms inside each bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home (including the basement). • Interconnect all smoke alarms in the home so when one sounds, they all sound. • Test smoke alarms at least monthly and replace all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old or sooner if they do not respond when tested. • Make sure everyone in your home knows how to respond if the smoke alarm sounds. • Pull together everyone in your household and make a plan. Walk through your home and inspect all possible ways out. Households with children should consider drawing a floor plan of your home, marking two ways out of each room, including windows and doors. • If you are building or remodeling your home, you are required to install home fire sprinklers.

Visualize your dream TransLink gas-tax hike OK’d Jeff Nagel Black Press

A fill-up in Metro Vancouver will cost motorists an extra two cents a litre in TransLink tax starting next April. Sixteen mayors approved TransLink’s supplemental plan Friday by an 81-34 population-weighted vote – a 70-per-cent majority. It ensures the long-stalled Evergreen Line to Coquitlam is finally built and delivers a variety of other transit upgrades across the region, partly funded through the gas-tax increase. But more new fees targeting drivers could be on the way, such as an annual vehicle levy or road pricing, as a result of the vote. At least that’s what most mayors hope happens. The Metro cities and the province are now committed to try to negotiate various new sources for TransLink to cover nearly half of the extra $70 million per year required to fund the transit expansion plan. It’s a big leap of faith for the mayors, who are trusting that Victoria will deliver and not leave them in the lurch once again. If the province gets cold feet or otherwise refuses to sign off on new sources, a $23 average property tax increase takes effect instead. “This is not the end of the road – this is the beginning of the road to the solution,” Langley City

Mayor Peter Fassbender said. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said a “fair tolling policy” must be part of the debate, to end the inequity of some Metro residents paying more in tolls than others. “We have a year,” Watts said. “If we can’t do this in a year, I think we should all just walk away from the table. If, for whatever reason , it fails I will not be sitting at this table.” Approval was assured because Surrey and Vancouver had enough weighted votes to pass the plan with only a few other cities on board. Six mayors opposed the plan: Burnaby’s Derek Corrigan, Richmond’s Malcolm Brodie, Delta’s Lois Jackson, Langley Township’s Rick Green, Pitt Meadows’ Don MacLean and New Westminster Mayor Wayne Wright. Green said South of Fraser residents are underserved by transit. “I’m hearing it loud and clear,” he said. “People have just had enough.” MacLean warned the fall-back property tax increase, if used, will not be temporary but will stay in place forever because rescinding it would trigger drastic transit service cuts. Several mayors predicted Victoria will back out and refuse to grant new sources – especially ones sure to be contentious as the next provincial election nears – leaving them stuck with the

unwanted property tax. “Can you imagine how difficult a road pricing debate is going to be and how divisive that is going to be in our region?” Brodie asked. “I’m afraid I don’t have that kind of faith,” Jackson added. TransLink has tried to get on sustainable financial footing before. It had the green light to impose a $75 per vehicle levy in 2000 but the Opposition Liberals fought it and the NDP government scrapped it in a bid to shore up votes. More recently, TransLink adopted a parking stall tax, but the Liberal government decided it was unacceptable and killed it, amid a governance overhaul that took control away from the elected reps. Some mayors, such as Brodie, wanted to approve just the twocent gas tax for the $1.4-billion Evergreen Line, chop the other spending in the plan and avoid the risk of a property tax hike. But others said they couldn’t support an Evergreen Line-only solution – nor was it possible because mayors had no power to amend the plan crafted by TransLink’s unelected board. The provincial government still has to pass legislation this month enabling the TransLink gas-tax increase from a current 15 cents a litre to 17 cents next spring.

arts & entertainment Chris Williams performs Oct. 13

Long-awaited homecoming Sarah Massah Black Press

Former White Rock resident and professional jazz vocalist Chris Williams is coming back to his hometown for one night only to perform a collection of songs. Williams, who was heavily involved with Semiahmoo High School’s music program and trained with instructors David Proznick and Kevin Lee, said it’s good to be coming home. “It feels so amazing, I haven’t been back in so long and I have changed so much since I left,” said Williams. “I have grown so much musically in the 16 years since I moved to California. I’m excited to share so much with my friends and family.” After finding tumours on his liver, Williams was in and out of hospitals for treatment and surgery for the past two years. The strain of a large tour is not currently an option for the vocalist, but he says when deciding the one place he would perform, his hometown was his top pick. “There was not a month in 2010 that I did not stay in the hospital,” said Williams. “I decided that this intimate concert in my hometown would be a perfect place for me – not the strain of a 20- or 30-city tour.” Since moving to California, the awardwinning musician has performed at many prestigious venues, including The Bing Crosby Estate and the Ritz Carlton Jazz Series.

arts & entertainment Civic Treasure among event participants

Artists open doors to public for tour Alex Browne Arts Reporter

One of the Semiahmoo Peninsula arts community’s undoubted success stories returns again this weekend (Oct. 15 and 16). The White Rock Artists Studio Tour is back for its 18th year, offering art lovers and browsers a chance to see recent work in the studios in which it originated, and meet the artists face-to-face – and even, in some cases, see demonstrations of techniques and works in progress. The chain of free open houses – which also includes studios in South Surrey – is a friendly opportunity to gain insight into the artistic process, discover works that resonate on the all-important personal level, and maybe even latch onto a bargain or two along the way. This year, 13 artists are featured in the network of open houses, including veteran artist Sheila Symington – who has just been accorded the honour of Surrey’s 2011 Civic Treasures award, which recognizes people who have made an outstanding contribution to the arts and culture in the city. News of the award, which will be formally presented Nov. 9 at Surrey Arts Centre, came right out of the blue, Symington said. “I think it partly recognizes the work I did with the White Rock Summer School of the Arts (which Symington ran under the auspices of the White Rock and South Surrey Art Society for 16 years),” she said. “And also working with the society when it first started out — I wasn’t the first president, but I was pretty close.” Symington, who has been painting full time for more than 35 years, has continued to change and evolve as an artist – and while she still paints some more traditional floral studies, her greatest delight is her abstract and semi-abstract paintings, collages and mixed-media works. “I dabble with a little bit of this and that,” is the way she puts it, with typical understatement. “Whatever keeps my interest.” The mixed-media works – she’s been doing them for 25 years now – feature arresting combinations of colour and texture. Much of the incorporated elements are paper, which she stains herself,

Sheila Symington has been named one of Surrey’s 2011 Civic Treasures. and other found objects, such as coins and stamps. The abstracts are her favourite, she admits. “It’s because you don’t have anything in front of you,” she said. “You have to use your imagination and let the work talk to you, and tell you what you need.” Symington said she usually sees around 75 people during the course of the two days of the studio tour. “I get lots of feedback,” she said. This year’s visitors will most likely see works from her latest series, which feature inks and washes, and are painted with a stick rather than a brush. “It gives a different effect altogether – more lines instead of thick brushwork,” she said. Also featured in this year’s tour will be sculpture and paintings by Joan Miriam Adams; watercolours and acrylic paintings by Nicoletta Baumeister; sculpture and jewelry by June Bloye; stone sculpture by Simon Cantin; watercolours and acrylic paintings by Carolynn Doan; pottery mosaics and public art by Connie Glover; acrylics, drawings and murals by Elizabeth Hollick; acrylics, drawings and murals by Judy Jordison; oil paintings and drawings by Kathy Macdonald; pottery by Arlene McGowan; watercolours by Jess Rice; and, oil paintings by Ann Worth.

arts & entertainment Choral, brass groups team up for concert

Alex Browne Arts Reporter

There’s something about the combination of choral voices and brass that provides an added dimension to sacred music. Maybe it’s that so many pieces – going far back into the history of church music – were created for traditional vocal and brass ensembles. That uplifting sound will fill Good Shepherd Church, 2250 150 St., this Sunday (Oct. 16) at 3 p.m. when the Vancouver Brass Project will join forces with the Stella Maris Singers and members of the church’s young Schola Cantorum choir in the concert Exultate. Trumpeter Al Cannon said that such collaborations – this one follows up on a concert three years ago – are an exciting part of the ensemble’s schedule of performances. “We really enjoy the opportunity,” he said. “There is a lot of repertoire out there for brass that is sacred, and we continually explore that. But it’s so much better when there is a choir – it really completes the picture.” But adding to the special nature of the concert, Good Shepherd music director Trudi Stammer noted, is the fact that most of the brass music has been specially arranged to dovetail into the choral pieces by the Vancouver Brass Project’s trombonist and principal arranger, Andrew Poirier.

“One of the pieces, Amid All The Traffic, is based on the melody Shenandoah – and Andrew did an arrangement that is just beautiful,” she said. “What’s really nice about this is you can kind of create a whole palette of colours from the music of ensembles like this,” added Cannon. “Andrew is a member of the Salvation Army Church, which has a fantastic band program. “The audience will be hearing music that is essentially a premiere – it hasn’t been heard before.” In addition to the brass, featuring Cannon and Poirier, trumpeter Chris Mitchell, Nick Anderson on horn, and Eric Morton on tuba, the concert will also showcase the Schola Cantorum girl’s choir. But it’s principally another chance for the local audience to hear the growing maturity of the more than 40 voices of the adult Stella Maris concert, an auditioned ensemble that includes both voices from within the parish and others in the district, as well as voices from the community at large. “They’re a seasoned choir – they work well with each other and they are getting more and more musically sophisticated in terms of what they sing and how they sing it,” Stammer said. Tickets, $15 ($10 seniors and students), and are available at the door or by calling 604-531-5739.

Surrey sits in second place in BCHL’s Coastal Conference

Eagles salvage trip with Nanaimo win Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A 4-3 win Sunday afternoon over the Nanaimo Clippers salvaged a three-game Vancouver Island trip for the Surrey Eagles, who’d opened the road swing with back-toback losses. The Eagles began their Thanksgiving long weekend journey with a hard-to-swallow 2-1 overtime loss to the Cowichan Valley Capitals Friday night, and followed that Saturday with 4-2 defeat at the hands of the Victoria Grizzlies, who sit last in the BC Hockey League’s Coastal Conference; the win over

Surrey was the team’s first of the season. “We weren’t very good at all Saturday,” Surrey coach Matt Erhart said. “We took some penalties, they scored on the power play… we hung around until the third period and were in it, but we just didn’t show up and play our game.” With one point garnered from the OT loss, and two more picked up Sunday, the Eagles remained in second place in the Coastal Conference, with a record of 4-1-0-2; the Powell River Kings sit atop the standings with a 6-2 record. “Obviously, it’s your goal to win every

game, but realistically, it would’ve been nice to come away from the weekend with four points, not three,” Erhart said. “But still, we were able to bounce back and get a win in the third game after a loss, so we’ll take the positives from that.” Sunday in Nanaimo, rookie defenceman D.J. Jones scored what turned out to be the winning goal for the Eagles when he notched a power-play tally at the 14:34 mark of the third period to put the Eagles up 4-2. Nanaimo’s Kyle Kramer scored with 44 seconds remaining to bring the home team to within one goal, but Surrey held on to

win it. Michael Stenerson, Devon Toews and Sean McGovern also tallied for the Eagles, while Robert Lindores and captain Tyler Morley chipped in with two assists apiece. With starting goalie Andrew Hunt given the night off after back-to-back starts in Cowichan and Victoria, rookie Connor Barrie earned his first win of the season – and his BCHL career – against the Clippers after stopping 29 of 32 shots on net.

Eagles return to home ice Friday  from page 37 Clippers wore white-and-pink threads in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. On Saturday, the Eagles were in a position to at least earn a point against the last-place Grizzlies – the score was tied 1-1 through 40 minutes – but Victoria exploded for three goals, two of which came on the power-play, in the final period to escape with the win. Toews added a power-play goal of his own in the third, which temporarily tied the score 2-2 before Victoria added the final two goals of the game in the final nine minutes of the game. Forward Brandon Tanev scored a short-handed marker in the second period to round out the scoring for Surrey. On Friday, the Eagles’ only goal was potted by newcomer Ben Greiner, who arrived in South Surrey last week from the United States Hockey League, where he’d been trying out with Sioux City. A Minnesota native, he played last season at Shattuck-St. Mary’s prep school. “He played well, coming in after just three days of practice and getting a couple points,” Erhart said. “And he’s only going to get better.” The winning goal in overtime was scored by Cowichan’s Darrin Robak, with an assist going to Troy Paterson, a South Surrey native and son of former Eagles’

The Eagles are back on home ice this weekend, with a Friday night tilt against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs and a Saturday contest against Victoria. Puck drops for both games at 7 p.m. at South Surrey Arena.

in the U.S.-based North American Hockey League. ■ Also last week, Erhart – in his second year as head coach – added the title of general manager to his job description. “No one in our entire organization was more qualified to run the day to day managerial duties of the club,” co-owner and director of player personnel Scott Bradley said in a release. “His relationships with NCAA schools and knowledge of the league made this decision an easy choice for the Surrey Eagles.”

sports New teams for young netminders

Peninsula goalies on the move

seeing without boundaries

Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

It was a busy few days for a pair of young goaltenders with Semiahmoo Peninsula connections earlier this month, as Western Hockey League teams scrambled to shore up their situations between the pipes. On Oct. 4, 20-year-old goaltender Adam Morrison, a Semiahmoo Minor Hockey alum and draft pick of the Philadelphia Flyers, was dealt, along with right-winger Levi Bews, from the Saskatoon Blades to his hometown Vancouver Giants, while another local netminder, Jon Groenheyde, was sent from the Edmonton Oil Kings to the Swift Current Broncos. To acquire Morrison, considered one of the Adam Morrison top goaltenders in the Vancouver Giants WHL, the Giants paid a steep price; forward Michael Burns, defenceman Zach Hodder and a draft pick were sent to the Blades. “It’s tough trading Michael Burns, who was a complete player for us. However, our need for an experienced goaltender has become apparent, and in order to acquire a quality player, you need to give up a quality player,” said Vancouver Giants general manager Scott Bonner in a release. For Morrison, the return home got off to a good start – he backstopped the Giants to a shootout victory against the Spokane Chiefs in his first game. Groenheyde, meanwhile, joins his third

Jon Groenheyde, shown here with the Kamloops Blazers, is now with Swift Current. WHL team; he began his career with the Kamloops Blazers, before moving on to the Oil Kings last year. He played 34 games for Edmonton, and played one this year before the deal to the Broncos. He was swapped for 20-year-old forward Jordan Peddle. “Groenheyde brings us a No. 1 goalie. He has experience, size, and it’ll give our other goalies a chance to learn a little bit,” said Swift Current head coach/GM Mark Lamb in a video posted on the team’s website. “He’ll solidify (the crease) for us.” Meanwhile, a third netminder with ties to the Peninsula, former Surrey Eagles starter Karel St. Laurent, is also on the move, after being released from his tryout with the American Hockey League’s Chicago

Wolves. St. Laurent, who backstopped the Eagles on their playoff run last season, had been in Vancouver Canucks camp to start the pre-season but was assigned to Wolves camp last month. Despite a strong showing, he was unable to unseat either one of the Wolves’ two veteran netminders. The Quebec native didn’t take long to find a place to play, however. He was originally planning to tend goal for the University of Quebec-Trois Rivieries, but last Thursday announced on Twitter that he was instead sticking with the pro game and heading to ECHL’s Reading Royals. “On my way to Reading, Pennsylvania. Can’t wait to meet the guys and the organization,” he wrote.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear and wonderful mother, Thelma Elizabeth Miller. Born on Dec 19, 1927 in Bristol, England she lived everyday to the fullest. She is survived by her sons, David, Nicolas and Allen as well as four grandchildren and three great grandchildren, all of whom she loved dearly. Her journey through life also touched the hearts of many other people especially those who were ill and in hospital where she worked passionately as Registered Nurse. Her incredible career began as a teenager in England during the last year of WW2 where she served in the WAAF plotting both enemy and friendly aircraft. She spoke of these years as the most exciting of her life. Following the war, she decided to train as a nurse working in a tropical diseases hospital. She achieved very high grades and was given the title of a Registered Nurse in Britain. In the 1950’s, our parents decided to start a new life in Canada where she carried on helping people in Newfoundland, Ontario and British Columbia, working at Burnaby General Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital & the Royal Columbian Hospital. Those who worked with her will no doubt remember her devotion to the job. Her passing has left a hole in our hearts that will never truly heal. She will be missed dearly. A Celebration of Life open house will be held in the near future and we would ask those interested in attending to call 604-541-0258 or email: nicman54@hotmail.com
