Seniors hit by flipped-truck’s canopy in three-vehicle collision

Pedestrians injured by crash debris Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A critically injured pedestrian and three others were taken to hospital following a horrific South Surrey crash Tuesday morning. “She was conscious, but unable to speak due to her injuries… pretty severe injuries,” Cpl. Darren Munroe said of a senior who was airlifted from nearby South Surrey Athletic Park. Witnesses say the woman and one other senior pedestrian were injured when they were hit by the canopy of a Ford pickup as they crossed 24 Avenue southbound at 148 Street around 9:30 a.m. The canopy flew off the northbound truck when its box was clipped by an eastbound Nissan Versa. Impact spun the truck, sending its contents, canopy and bed liner flying. The truck came to rest on its driver’s side in the northeast corner of the intersection. Peter Manchulenko, a South Surrey resident, was third in line to cross the intersection northbound when the Nissan “came flying through.” “The light was clearly red (for the Nissan),” Manchulenko said.  see page A4 ONLINE VIDEOÊ For more from the crash site, visit peacearchnews.com

Opposition criticizes proposed legislation as ‘divisive’

Hiebert targets union accountability with bill Alex Browne Staff Reporter

Canadian labour unions will have to file financial statements annually with Revenue Canada, if a new private members bill drafted by MP Russ Hiebert becomes law. Hiebert (South Surrey-White RockCloverdale) introduced his Union Public Disclosure bill in the House of Commons Monday, and said it was in line with the Federal Accountability Act, which increases the transparency in government agencies, crown corporations and aboriginal reserves. The bill would extend that accountability to labour organizations as well, Hiebert

told Peace Arch News Monday, adding that Sims said Monday from Ottawa. unions should be included because they “Unions are 100 per cent funded by their receive a “public benefit.” members, and they But NDP MP Jinny Sims ❝It’s a disturbing thing, a divisive have some of the most (Newton-North Delta) thing, and it gives the impression stringent regulations in – former B.C.

Public disclosure, Hiebert said, will allow the public to “gauge the effectiveness, financial integrity and health of their unions,” as well as track the use of benefits the unions receive from the federal government. “Just like charities, labour organizations receive a public benefit and the public should be informed how that public benefit is being used,” he said, pointing to tax exemptions received by union members, which he estimated amount to between $300 million and $400 million per year.  see page A4

its own police force, although that would likely be a possibility if the RCMP contract is not extended. The province doesn’t seem to have much of a Plan B at present. The RCMP contract should be extended, but with the understanding that a civilian agency will oversee investigation of all police-related deaths and serious injuries, as is planned. There also needs to be cost containment measures, so that municipal taxpayers don’t get stuck with large and unexpected bills. If the federal government was willing to sign a contract, limiting a rise in RCMP expenses to no more than two per cent per year, municipal governments would have more certainty. This would also act as an incentive for Ottawa to keep a closer eye on RCMP costs. If for some reason, the costs rise more than two per cent, Ottawa should be prepared to absorb those additional costs, as it has much more taxing ability than any other level of government. What we are seeing now are the challenges that go into negotiating a new contract. What we would like to see is a contract that treats all parties – the RCMP members, all three levels of government and taxpayers – fairly, and allows the RCMP to keep policing Surrey as effectively as they have in the past 60 years.

news Father still in custody

Amber Alert ends in charge Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A man arrested last week following an alleged parental abduction remains in custody and is facing several charges in connection with the incident. Police confirmed Tuesday that charges against 35-year-old Benjamin James McBeath include aggravated assault, breach of undertaking, unlawful confinement and break-and-enter. The charges follow a Sept. 27 incident, in which police were called to a home in the 1500-block of King George Boulevard around 8 p.m. Upon arrival, officers determined there had been a dispute, an alleged assault of an adult female and the alleged abduction of a four-year-old boy. An Amber Alert was issued around 9:40 p.m. It was deactivated about two hours later, after the boy was found in a vehicle spotted southbound in the 15600block of King George Boulevard. One man was arrested at the scene without incident. McBeath, who police confirmed is the father of the boy reported missing, is due back in court Oct. 7.

SLIDESHOW

Residents express concern, support for proposed development

Opinions voiced at Oxford Street public hearing Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Comments on a project proposed for the corner of Oxford Street and Marine Drive ran the gamut at White Rock city hall Monday, when about 50 residents turned out to a public hearing to have their say. Vehemently opposed by some and strongly supported by others, Marine Terraces is proposed as a three-building residential/ commercial complex on 1.14 acres between Buena Vista Avenue and Marine Drive, including the White Rock Muffler site. To proceed, Georgia Laine Developments needs amendments made to the city’s Official Community Plan and zoning – changes many residents have maintained should not be considered. Reasons cited Monday include the impact to traffic congestion, views and an already challenging parking situation; the possibility the developer could simply decide to flip the site; the fact that residents who have asked for even minor amendments have been turned down flat; and, because rules are rules. “Your Official Community Plan and bylaws are contracts with your residents, like me,” said Hollie Whitehead, a Buena Vista Avenue resident, suggesting council entertain proposals that require no OCP amendments.

Tracy Holmes photo

Buena Vista Avenue resident Hollie Whitehead voices her concerns. “Wasn’t that the purpose of creating a plan in the first place?” In addition to speaking, Whitehead submitted a list of 47 others who are also opposed to the project. Supporters told council the development is long overdue and would “establish an intelligent precedent” for future proposals. In addition, the developer has made significant changes to accommodate concerns raised, including those surrounding heights, said White Rock resident Larry Robinson. Robinson noted the site is a liability to the city, given that it’s on a floodplain and needs remediation. Any developer taking on that

liability “should be applauded,” he said. Dan Saunders, who is part-owner of the White Rock Muffler site, said benefits to the city would include jobs, paid parking spaces and about $200,000 per year in taxes. He noted the property was offered to the city for purchase two years ago, and could have been bought and used at that time for whatever purpose officials deemed appropriate. “Obviously, council turned that down. As a citizen of White Rock, I think this project makes sense.” In a written submission supporting the project, restaurant owner Nicholas Popoff said he will be forced to consider moving his operations to South Surrey if White Rock doesn’t “keep up with the times and understand that density is important to keeping business in White Rock.” While opponents said they recognized change is inevitable, they are concerned if the city approves the amendments, it will set a precedent for future projects. Roper Avenue resident Bryan Boyce told council there is still a lot of confusion amongst residents as to what is at stake and why the proposal appears to be moving through the process so quickly. He appealed to the politicians to take their time on a decision.

“There’s so much to be considered for such a precious piece of property,” Boyce said. “We just ask that you really take a hard, hard look at this process and get everybody onboard before you move forward.” Some speakers criticized Georgia Laine president Robert Wilson – comments architect Tim Ankenman took exception to. “No man that I know has done more for the Downtown Eastside than my client,” he said, citing projects in Vancouver that have benefited the less fortunate. In response to concerns about traffic congestion, Ankenman cited a plan to have “five or six” communal cars available to residents of Marine Terraces. He agreed to work on a traffic plan with city staff, and also assured that proponents would not come back after the fact asking to build higher. Ankenman noted he sat on the city’s advisory design panel when a project was proposed for the same site – minus the two residential lots considered in the latest proposal – about 10 years ago. It didn’t go ahead because no one thought to include the two lots and no one wanted to take on the necessary remediation, he said. If the Georgia Laine development is approved, it means “getting this site cleaned up once and for all,” Ankenman said.

OCTOBER SPECIALS

Witnesses rush to assist victims  from page A1 “We started going and all of a sudden… I saw the car coming – it was moving.” Manchulenko said he saw the canopy hit one of the pedestrians; the truck’s bed liner knocked the other woman down, breaking her ankle in the process, he said. He saw “broken bones and a lot of facial damage to one lady.” Manchulenko and other drivers raced to help. While he helped truck driver Claude Kreptul climb out of the vehicle’s passenger side, another woman who had been westbound on 24th rushed to help one of the pedestrians. “I just saw cars just spin around,” the Crescent Beach resident said, declining to give her name. “I just went up and held her neck.” The victim was conscious and knew her own name, the woman said. She also repeatedly asked for her son, so the Good Samari-

tan drove to a nearby real estate office to notify him. The other pedestrian was face down on the road, “semi-conscious, blood all over her.” “I really hope she’s OK,” the shaken woman said. Cradling his bloodied left arm in a towel, Kreptul, a White Rock resident, said everything happened “so fast.” One car travelling in front of him cleared the intersection. “(The Nissan driver) just nailed the back end of me and spun me ’round,” he said. The badly damaged Nissan struck the driver’s side of a westbound Mazda before coming to rest about 50 feet west of the intersection. All three drivers were treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Kreptul said he was lucky the impact point wasn’t the driver door. “I would’ve been dead.”

Taking in the aftermath – debris, broken glass and even shoes – Kreptul said his thoughts were with the pedestrians. “I just hope these people are alright.” A third senior woman seen sitting on the truck canopy was treated for less severe injuries; nearby, a distraught young woman sat on the boulevard. Munroe said several witnesses reported that the Nissan ran a red light, however, investigation is ongoing and collision analysts still need to reconstruct what happened. Police said later Tuesday that charges against the Nissan driver are being considered. Manchulenko was frustrated at the harm done by what he believes was a driver in a rush. It’s a too-common mindset, he said. “What pisses me off is everybody’s always in such a hurry,” he said. “All that, for this.”

Teen homicide

Ex not a suspect Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A former boyfriend of slain teen Maple Batalia has turned himself in on assault charges. Gurjinder Dhaliwal, 19, turned himself in at the Surrey RCMP detachment Monday on a warrant for an alleged attack on two people at a North Surrey Tim Hortons on Sept. 24. Dhaliwal faces two counts of assault. Police would not say whether one of those attacked was Batalia. On Sept. 28, Batalia was gunned down on the third floor of the Central City parkade beside Simon Fraser University as she left a late-night study session. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said Dhaliwal is not a suspect in the shooting, and it can’t say whether the shooting was targeted or random. IMPORTS & GIFTS

editorial

Doing nothing a tired option s it time for change along White Rock’s waterfront? Many, particularly those who have called the area home for decades, say no. It’s no surprise when developers disagree with the statement, considering the money that stands to be made on virtually any residential project overlooking the Semiahmoo Bay. It is, after all, a much-coveted view. Since January, citizens have been asked their thoughts on just such a project envisioned for the corner of Marine Drive and Oxford Street. Proponents of the project initially said their aim is to offer the majority of those who buy into it a view, and the only way to accomplish the goal was to go higher than what the area’s zoning currently allows. The first concept plans for the White Rock Muffler site detailed options for either a 15-, nine- or six-storey building. In March, the developer asked citizens to comment on a six-storey design. While the majority who turned out to that second meeting were none-too-pleased that variances to zoning were requested, others said it is high time something is done to revitalize the waterfront. It is tired, and the city – residents, businesses and visitors included – is suffering as a result. The question is, exactly what should that revitalization entail? White Rock has embarked on several initiatives aimed at helping guide the entire city’s future: a town centre urban design concept is in its final stages, a draft businessneeds assessment is in-hand and a call for tenders on a waterfront-visioning process has been made, to name a few. Will the latter suggest highrises overlooking Semiahmoo Bay? It’s possible. If anything is certain as all of these efforts unfold, it’s that some degree of change will happen, and not everyone will be happy with the end result. What is also certain is that the answer shouldn’t be to simply do nothing. Perhaps the best those concerned with what the future holds for White Rock can do is make their concerns known; be part of the process. Those who choose to sit back and watch, never offering an opinion or suggestion, will be hard-pressed to justify complaints down the road that the process was lacking or the results unsatisfactory.

150 responding coverage when dealing with death. Some of it’s perception, some of it’s circumstantial and, regrettably, some of it’s timing. News media – indeed the public’s attention – appear ensnared by a person’s story when it seems untimely or under unconventional circumstances. Here, at the Peace Arch News, we endeavour to tell as many stories of people’s passing as come to us. Some survivors prefer to mourn in private, others prefer to share their memories of loved ones with the masses. While we sometimes get accused of ghoulish, tabloid-like behaviour when we contact family members so soon after unexpected tragedies, just as often we find relatives expressing appreciation for being able to tell their community of its loss. And while telling such stories can take their toll on the writers as we share our subjects’ heartache, we as reporters have an innate need to tell these stories. And inside, I feel that by highlighting one death and virtually ignoring another – as we regretfully must do – we aren’t fulfilling our sense of obligation. None of this is to take away from Layton, Klitch or any of the others whose passing has captured attention en masse these past few months. It is meant merely to note that every death creates a void. And that we recognize there are too many stories we haven’t shared, while the world passes by. Lance Peverley is editor of Peace Arch News

Addiction is an illness Editor: Re: Help those who have no choice, Sept. 27 letters. So letter-writer Cheryl Berti doesn’t think drugs and alcohol are considered a disease. They are a “choice,” in her words. As someone who has seen several family and friends affected by different types of alcohol and drug addictions through my 40-plus years of life, I can tell you it is not a “choice” to continue their addictions. I’ve even had strong arguments with others who believed as Berti did, only to see them fall victim to these kinds of addictions themselves. I strongly believe addictions are a form of mental illness. If we are to believe as Berti does, can we not apply the same parameters to schizophrenics (they “choose” to listen to the voices) or the depressed (they “choose” to remain unhappy) or the obese (they “choose” to eat all the time). We need to stop thinking of addiction, in all its forms, in terms of it being a choice. These people may have made the initial “choice” to try a drug or drink/eat to kill emotional or physical pain in their life, but the addiction itself is not a choice. I have heard it called an “intense hunger,” one that can not be ignored or the pain becomes too great. For some, when they are without, they automatically seek out that which will kill the hunger or pain. Unfortunately, it seems many just want to sweep anything that is distasteful under the carpet, so they don’t have to deal with it. We need to stop looking at addictions – and many other forms of unacceptable behaviour – as a “choice,” and start looking at them and deal with them as a form of mental illness so that we can, as a society, move on and help those in need by treating them so that they can live fulfilled lives again. Jeff McArdon, Surrey Q We have a real problem in this world when someone has an addiction. They are not considered as having a mental illness, as they have an addiction, even though through their addiction they have done something stupid, like jumping out of secondstorey window of a rehab facility. Of course, the rehab facility no longer has a place for them, due to worry about litigation. Yet these same poor souls are not considered as psychiatric material by the hospital/government ward. So where do they belong? I think it’s called a grey area where these poor souls fall between the cracks. I hope you or anyone you know never have to experience addiction. Randy & Janet Henley, White Rock Q Who has no choice? For many years I have volunteered and worked in the non-profit/ social-service sector. I have heard the stories of many people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. I was very disturbed by the letter

from Cheryl Berti. She feels we should support the deserving and let the rest be homeless. Who will make that decision? Is the drug-addicted woman, who had two children fathered by her father before she was 15, not deserving? Is the alcoholic man, who suffers from dyslexia but was beaten for bad grades and is brain damaged as a result, not deserving? I wouldn’t want to make that choice. Berti is not the only person with these attitudes; hers reflect the feelings of many. Homelessness not only damages the lives of the individuals, it damages society. It is easy to find evidence that homelessness costs the taxpayer more than providing housing. So why then do we not do it? The government cannot be seen to help the “undeserving.” It would be political suicide. We all need help some time in our lives. Some are fortunate, some are not; are they less deserving than us? Are lung-cancer patients, who have been addicted to smoking not deserving of treatment? It’s a slippery slope. Judy Peterson, White Rock

Cycling here – as elected officials Kevin Falcon and Bob Bose do in this 2005 photo – is perilous, says Bryant Avery.

Vicious cycle yields complaints Editor: Perhaps you’ve noticed, an ever-increasing number of people in South Surrey and White Rock are biking. I expect that trend to grow rapidly in coming years, as it has throughout the region. Local officials need to know that the road conditions for bicycles here are awful. Here is a small sample: • 20 Avenue has signs saying it’s a bike route. But it’s a very dangerous road for bikers. Between 140 and 144 streets, especially, there are four places where the shoulders disappear, squeezing bikers out. It is also impossible to safely ride a bike eastbound on 20 Avenue from 150 Street to 152 Street. I use the sidewalk which, understandably, annoys pedestrians. • Children ride bikes to Semiahmoo Secondary and Thrift Elementary. There’s a good bike lane in front of the schools on 148 Street. But the approach to the schools along 148 Street, north of 20 Avenue, narrows dangerously and has an uneven gravel shoulder. • On 16 Avenue, you can ride fairly safely heading eastward towards 152 Street. But there’s no safe way to

go the other way. What good is a one-way bike route? • There is now a lot of traffic on 156 Street from 24 Avenue to 16 Avenue. In some parts of that stretch, there’s a bike lane. But the lane narrows dangerously in several spots, forcing the cyclist onto the sidewalk. • The pedestrian bridge over Highway 99 at 28 Avenue has signs indicating it is for bike use. But the approaching roads, 28 Avenue and 156 Street, are both very dangerous routes as bikers are squeezed off the road by vehicles. I was recently run off the road by a car in that area. • I have ceased to use the bike lane on 24 Avenue that crosses Highway 99 en route to the Morgan Crossing shopping area, because cars on that road go so very fast, side by side. On several occasions I have nearly been clipped by car mirrors in that area. • As for the route I need to use most often, along 152 Street towards Semiahmoo mall, banks, drug stores, clinics, post office and other common outlets, forget it. A bicyclist must get on sidewalks or risk serious injury. There’s no room anywhere else for a biker. Bryant Avery, Surrey

City’s former communications manager campaigns Black Press

The man who coined the phrase “City of Parks” is running for office in Surrey this fall. Paul Griffin, the city’s former general manager of communications, has indicated he will run for council as an independent Nov. 19. He said he will be the only true “independent” on council, if he is

successful. “I’ve got to laugh when I hear all these people riding on the mayor’s coattail who claim they’re independent,” Griffin said last week. “Does anybody actually believe they’re independent?” Griffin worked with the city for seven years, developing a communications strategy. He was the first

to come up with the motto, “City of Parks,” which stayed for more than a decade. He said he’s sorry to see the slogan go, and believes there aren’t many people who could say what the city’s new motto is. (It’s “The Future Lives Here”). “I think (City of Parks) said something about Surrey and what we’re trying to be, and what

Hump repairs ‘due diligence’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The City of White Rock is assessing the stability of the Marine Drive Hump. But Rob Thompson, the city’s director of engineering, said identifying the cause of “lateral cracking” noticed in the roadbed is a matter of due diligence, not concern. “The work itself is not that huge,” Thompson said. “The implications of not doing the work could be huge.” Thompson said the cracks, located about two feet from the sidewalk, were

noticed last spring by a geotechnical consultant hired to do a follow-up of tree removal last summer. They’re small enough that the average person wouldn’t notice them, he said. The fact they’re there, however – particularly in light of recent paving – means there’s movement. “Some movements are normal. It was just part of due diligence to have them have a look at it,” Thompson said. “We’re not responding to a disaster or anything.” Thompson hopes to have a report on the issue ready to present to council by early November.

our goal and our vision as a city is,” Griffin said. He will be challenging his opponents on transportation, particularly on their hopes for light rail over

SkyTrain. “It’s going to be a disaster for Surrey if we don’t get the SkyTrain in here,” he said. He will be running a campaign on a

slim budget, he said, adding it will be “truly independent.” “I’m not taking any money from developers, any money from unions, any money

22-year-old White Rock photographer has captured the raw emotion of the elderly in a photoessay shot at the Peace Portal Lodge. Braden Paul, who studied photography at Langara College in Vancouver, said he wanted to find a topic that was original and would give the viewer an emotional reaction. He looked at his personal life for inspiration and found it in his 94-year-old grandfather. “I wanted something that would really hit home to a lot of people,” said Paul. “I feel like the elderly are a piece of our society that sometimes gets put behind us and ignored.” In March, Paul found out about Peace Portal Lodge from a friend who has family that resides there.

I never thought I would be writing a testimonial about hearing aids! Most people expect to eventually need to wear reading glasses as they get a bit older, but I never would have expected that I would need hearing aids. I have to say that once I had my hearing test at Crystal Vision and Hearing Centre it was explained to me although my hearing loss was not severe, my quality of life would be different hearing clearly. I have to say once I was Àtted and got them adjusted to suit my needs I did hear much clearer and even had to turn the volume down on my car radio! I felt the need to write this because I want people to know that no matter what your age is, if you feel you may have some hearing loss go get checked, the screening is free and if you do require hearing aids the staff at Crystal Vision and Hearing Centre are excellent with making the transition an easy one. Thanks again guys! Samuel F.

Farmers’ Market summer season winds down Sarah Massah

T

Black Press

he annual White Rock Summer Farmers’ Market will be drawing to a close on Sunday - just in time to pick up last-minute produce for Thanksgiving dinner. The market, which is held at Miramar Village, features an average of 60 vendors who supply everything from peaches and leafy greens to Korean pottery and dog treats. And despite the rain-soaked summer this year, the market fared well, according to Helen Fathers, the market manager. “Considering the weather, we had a good turnout,” said Fathers, who has been involved with the market for more than seven years. “Some of the vegetables and fruit were behind because of the weather, but on average we had market full of vendors.” The rain didn’t dampen the enthusiasm for customers either. According to Fathers, more than 2,500 people came to the market on average, and with Thanksgiving approaching on Monday she expects a full crowd to close out the summer season. “It will be fast and furious because we don’t have another market for a month,” said Fathers. “But people will get what they need to get.” For Fathers, having interaction between the vendors and the customers is more than just supply and demand. Almost all the vendors are local which provides customers with a farm-to-table experience. “It’s a great relationship to have with a farmer because they work so hard for us. It really builds a sense of community and that’s what we need - we need community,” said Fathers. “We have people who come here just to chat with people and have coffee.”

Brian Bethel leads a group through Tai Chi movements during a demonstration at the White Rock Farmers Market last year. The White Rock market was chosen this year to be a part of the Metro Vancouver Food System Strategy which focuses on creating a food system that is local and sustainable. Participants will review the current food system set in place in Metro Vancouver and its challenges and work towards improving on them.

“Having our market invited to help shape new policy in the region - that was big,” said Fathers. According to a study from the University of Northern B.C., the farmers market injected nearly $1-million into the local economy in 2006. The market was founded in 1999 and is operated by the White Rock Farmers’ Market

Association. Vendors will open up and start selling from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. beneath the towers near Russell Avenue and Johnston Road. The winter season farmers’ markets will take place on Nov. 7 and Dec. 5 at the Kent Street Activity Center. For a list of vendors go to http://www. whiterockfarmersmarket.ca

Items Galore... Savings of Plenty.

SFU to host Diwali gala Simon Fraser University will celebrate Diwali, India’s festival of lights, at a gala at the Bollywood Banquet Hall (#201-8116 128 St.) on Oct 11. More than 300 business and community leaders, along with SFU students, faculty, staff and alumni, are expected to attend the fourth annual event in Surrey. The evening, featuring South Asian performances and cuisine, includes a reception at 5:30 p.m. and dinner at 6:15 p.m. Among speakers will be recent SFU graduate Ish Jhaj, who will talk about the soccer program she developed and delivered for young girls in Punjab this past summer. “SFU’s Diwali event is one of the many ways in which the university celebrates Indian culture and connects with the South Asian community,” says SFU President Andrew Petter, the evening’s host, who is preparing to travel to India in November. Funds raised from the event will go

toward SFU student scholarships to support initiatives that help create opportunities for students to work, study and volunteer in the cities and villages of India, through the university’s mobility initiative. The cultural and business-networking event is supported by the SFU-India Advisory Council and provides an opportunity for the community to learn more about SFU’s India initiatives, including the university’s India Strategy, meet council members and talk with students who are current recipients of the India mobility initiative funding. “Diwali is a perfect opportunity to celebrate our diversity and recognize it as a key to enriching the communities in which we live and work,” says Stephen Murphy, senior vice-president, TD Commercial Banking, the title event sponsor. The cost of the Diwali event is $60 per person or $450 for a table of eight. For information and tickets, call 778782-5313 or visit http:// bit.ly/plUVl6

Other concerns Delegates at the UBCM also registered their concerns about wire theft, carbon offsets and the health risks of tanning beds. The ongoing scourge of metal theft should be dealt with through consistent provincial rules to regulate metal dealers, recyclers and pawnshops, according to a Langley Township resolution that passed without debate. Similar resolutions

were advanced by Maple Ridge, West Kelowna and Greenwood. UBCM delegates also voted to call on the province to ban youths under 18 from using indoor tanning beds. They also backed a call to have cities’ local emission reduction projects be counted as an acceptable purchase of carbon offsets. Several cities object to buying carbon offsets through the province’s Pacific Carbon Trust in order to reach carbon neutral status.

Private projects opposed UBCM delegates passed a Burnabysponsored resolution calling on the federal government to allow continued public ownership of water and sewer plants when doling out infrastructure grants. Ottawa requires big local projects in line for grants to first go through a P3 assessment to see if money can be saved by building them as public-private partnerships. The issue has been hot in the Fraser Valley, where Mission and Abbotsford councils are split over whether a shared water supply expansion should be publicly or privately built. Abbotsford is now pursuing the P3 water project itself, over Mission’s objections.

Casino scrutiny B.C. cities are demanding tougher scrutiny of gambling due to the infiltration of casinos by organized crime. Delegates at UBCM passed a resolution

news Throne speech includes announcement of Family Day in February 2013

Changes on the way for B.C. schools Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – The B.C. government will provide more money for special-needs support in the province’s public schools, and provide new training for teachers, according to Premier Christy Clark’s first throne speech. Lieutenant-Governor Steven Point delivered the speech Monday to open a new session of the B.C. legislature. It confirms the province’s “net zero” negotiation mandate for public sector union contracts will be imposed for the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, whose contract

expired last June. The BCTF has been refusing non-essential duties since school started in September, and on Monday the B.C. Public School Employers Association met to consider reducing teacher pay or imposing a lockout in an effort to force a settlement. The BCTF is demanding wage parity with other provinces and a range of benefit improvements, as well as hundreds of millions of dollars to reduce class sizes and increase special-needs support staff. Education Minister George Abbott said the additional

money for special needs support will be in the “tens of millions” over the next three years. Decreasing class sizes by one student across the province would cost $150 million, and research suggests smaller classes are far down the list of things that improve education outcomes, he said. NDP leader Adrian Dix said improvements to specialneeds support are only coming because of a B.C. Supreme Court decision earlier this year giving the government a year to consult on class size and composition limits taken out

of teacher bargaining in 2002. Other highlights of Monday’s throne speech: • B.C.’s first Family Day statutory holiday will be Feb. 18, 2013. • To reduce the backlog in B.C. courts, legislation is coming to relax restrictions on part-time work performed by retired judges to provide “surge capacity.” • Prosecutors in Stanley Cup riot cases will ask for TV and radio access to cases, which are expected to start this month. • New legislation is promised to restrict scrap metal sales to deter metal theft.

Online voting backed by B.C. cities Jeff Nagel Black Press

Citizens may be able to remotely vote over the Internet to elect their mayor and council as early as 2014. Union of B.C. Municipalities delegates voted by a two-to-one margin last week to urge the province to lay the groundwork to allow online voting as an option three years from now. Advocates of the idea say it could reverse a trend of sagging voter turnout, while detractors worry casting a ballot may no longer be secret, opening the door to vote-tampering by interest groups out to sway the result.

“We all have to acknowledge the fact society has changed,” said Coquitlam Coun. Linda Reimer, one of the delegates who voted in favour. Just 20.5 per cent of Coquitlam voters turned out in the last election, she said, and the provincial average is 35 per cent for civic elections. White Rock Coun. Lynne Sinclair dismissed another delegate’s suggestion that many seniors aren’t tech-savvy and wouldn’t benefit. Sinclair said one Ontario city that allows online voting found most users are seniors with mobility issues. Others warned it’s too risky to end the long tradition of voting

The ADDED Touch SINCE 1984

secretly in a ballot booth at an authorized polling place. “Online voting is fraught with danger,” said Sunshine Coast Regional District director Donna Shugar. “You don’t know who is in the room with a voter coercing or persuading them.” “It’s too easy to hack a system,” added Fraser Valley Regional District director Wendy Bales, predicting the technology – if it backfires – may not strengthen democracy but further erode faith in the system. Spallumcheen Mayor Will Hansma pointed to irregularities over online voting during the BC Liberal leadership vote

earlier this year. “I was busy so I phoned my wife, gave her my number and she voted for me,” Hansma said, adding there’s so far no technological solution available to block unauthorized voting or undue influence. “This isn’t being forced on anyone,” countered Kelowna Coun. Kevin Craig. “If it’s not right for your community, you’re not being railroaded into it.” Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Ida Chong has promised to pursue the idea, which would require a change of legislation and time to sort out the technological issues.

B.C. demands RCMP contract talks resume Tom Fletcher Black Press

VANCOUVER – The B.C. government needs to present a more specific proposal to bridge the gap on negotiating a new 20-year contract for RCMP services, MP James Moore said Friday. Moore, the Conservative government’s senior B.C. cabinet minister, spoke to the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention, three days after B.C. revealed that Ottawa has given the province a deadline of the end of November to sign a new RCMP contract.

Tom Fletcher photo

Heritage Minister James Moore. Municipal leaders rejected that view, voting unanimously for an emergency resolution calling on the federal government to return to the bargaining table.

B.C. Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond surprised mayors and councillors Tuesday when she announced that talks with Ottawa have broken off after four years. Federal Public Safety Minister Vic Toews has since said that the federal government will begin withdrawing RCMP services by 2014 if B.C. doesn’t sign the contract terms accepted by Saskatchewan and Alberta. Toews gave a deadline of Nov. 30. If there is no deal, B.C. would have to reconstruct a provincial police service that was disbanded in 1950. The RCMP has contracts

with most B.C. municipalities to provide police service, and local governments are concerned about rising costs. Moore said the cost-sharing formula and other major points of the RCMP deal are agreed upon. B.C. wants more input but there have been different proposals from municipalities and the province on how to do that, he said. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, municipal representative in negotiations, said Moore is wrong. B.C. has a specific list of proposals that has been worked out with

other provinces and territories, and he has been at every negotiating session for the last year where it has been discussed, he said. With one third of all RCMP officers, B.C. has emerged as leader of provinces and territories seeking a new deal. Fassbender said he wants a mechanism to deal directly with Ottawa as RCMP costs emerge. “For me it’s the contract management committee at the federal level that we want... so that we can move forward and find solutions that are going to make sense,” Fassbender said.

Meet bad weather with good sense. It’s that time of year again. It’s getting dark early, it’s raining more often and foggy patches are here, there and sometimes everywhere.

White Rock Players Club present comedy-thriller Accomplice

Mystery, mayhem and plenty of laughs Alex Browne

T

Arts Reporter

here are only a couple of things you can truly be sure of when you settle in your seat to watch Accomplice, the first play in the new White Rock Playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; season (opening Oct. 12, 8 p.m., at Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd.). 1. Playwright Rupert Holmes is the same Rupert Holmes who wrote and sang the 1979-80 pop hit Escape (The Pina Colada Song). He was also responsible for the 1986 Tony award-winner The Mystery of Edwin Drood, which turned an unfinished Charles Dickensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; novel into a musical. 2. Accomplice is not a musical. But everything else about this comedy-mystery-thriller is open to question, director David Lloyd Austin (The Passion of Dracula) admits. A bit of a bomb when it first arrived on Broadway in 1990 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it clearly confused a staid, traditionalist audience â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the show has become something of a cause celebre that has been gathering momentum ever since. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a clever conundrum in a similar vein to Anthony Shafferâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plays Sleuth and Whodunnit, a brain-teaser guaranteed to make all but the most alert scratch their heads at the surprising revelations in store. Forget the old standby description: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nothing quite is what it seems.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Accomplice leaves it in the dust. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The marketing line they used in 1990 was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;whatever you see and hear in the first act â&#x20AC;&#x201C; donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe a word of itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? Austin said. He remembers his own reaction when he first read the play, sitting on a beach near his current parttime residence in Bucerias, north of Puerto Vallarta in Mexico. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I came to a certain page in the script and said, out loud, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;where the hell did that come from?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he recalled with a chuckle. Holmesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; elaborately constructed puzzle has so many twists and turns, Austin said, that â&#x20AC;&#x201C; quite apart from his wish not to give anything away â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it actually beggars description. He agreed that, in its multiple layers, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unlike one of

But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to be done straight. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no harm in stating that The actors have to realize that Accomplice opens as a traditional theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not funny â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the lines English mystery thriller of the that are funny. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll keep our kind beloved by fans fingers crossed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the of Agatha Christie. A â??The actors have toughest kind of theatre renovated mill house on to do.â&#x20AC;? to realize thet the moors provides the Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt, setting for a conversation theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not funny however, that he has between the residents, â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the lines enlisted some strong married couple Derek talents for the challenge. that are funny.â?&#x17E; The first-seen couple and Janet Taylor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a David Lloyd Austin are played by wellconversation that soon director takes a sinister turn. known players Ben Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only the Odberg and Lori Tych, beginning of the fun and both recent Community Theatre deception, however. Coalition award nominees for One shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose sight of the their leading roles in last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fact that Accomplice is also very Earth and Sky.

Joining them on stage are equally familiar face Brent Cross, along with relative newcomer Sunny Stump. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ben is coming up with some fantastic ideas and Lori is so believable,â&#x20AC;? Austin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backstage or asking for a line, she does it in character â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known for that. Brent is growing and learning all the time, and while Sunny hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done as much she plays a perfect character role in this.â&#x20AC;? What changes Austin has made in the current version of Accomplice are aimed principally at clarity, he noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said to the White Rock Players â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do it, but I have to simplify itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? he said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Holmes himself says he realizes that not many theatre groups are able to do this, technically. We have to make sure there is clarity in the scene breaks, to give that extra second or two to let people absorb whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just happened.â&#x20AC;? But there is one hint for those who love to solve a puzzle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; be sure to give careful scrutiny to the program youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re handed as you go into the theatre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even the program plays an important part in the plot,â&#x20AC;? Austin said. Accomplice runs until Oct. 29, with performances Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and a 2:30 p.m. Sunday matinee on Oct. 23.

t’s a bluegrass recording that can stand with the best of the idiom. And it’s from a group – 5 On A String – with a strong local connection. Mandolinist/lead and tenor vocalist Tim Eccles is a White Rock resident, while fiddler/bass vocalist Hugh Ellenwood, who grew up here, is well-known as archives manager for White Rock Museum and Archives, as well as co-writer – with mother Lorraine – of Peace Arch News’ ongoing Historical Perspective column.

Q

Petra Hoffman turned to glass etching after Hepatitis diagnosis

Artist shares healing power of art When Surrey-based artist Petra Hoffmann was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, she turned to glass and mirror art etching as a type of therapy. Instead of using commercial stencil designs, she chose to draw and cut her images by hand. On Oct. 6, 7:30 p.m. as part of the Thursday Artist Talk speaker series at the Surrey Art Gallery, Hoffmann will share her inspiring journey of selfdiscovery and overcoming the odds. Hear how her fresh approach to art-making helped her to heal, and how the experience of her illness has led to new initiatives, including a soon-to-be-released autobiography.

A selection of etchings will be shown. Admission is free. Petra Hoffmann was introduced to glass and mirror art etching in 1992, and pursued it with a passion for a few years until the pace of her life intervened. In late 2008, she received a diagnosis of Hepatitis C, and while undergoing treatment, was essentially confined to her home. Needing an outlet, Hoffmann decided to revisit the artistic endeavour she previously enjoyed. Her work can be seen at www.petrabilities.com, and the Surrey Art Gallery gift shop. Surrey Art Gallery is located at 13750 88 Ave. Phone 604-501-5566 or check www.surrey.ca/arts.

I phoned a lawyer and asked him to tell me how much it would cost to do a simple will. He gave me a quote, so my wife and I made an appointment to see him. When we got there I told him that it was a second marriage for both myself and my wife, that we each had children from previous marriages who we wanted to receive the assets that we brought into the marriage, that I had lent money to two of my children that I wanted my estate to recover, and one of our children was deeply involved in drugs so we didn’t want to give any substantial gift to her but possibly an income. We went back three times for revisions as the scenario evolved. Now he has sent me a bill for about four times the original quote. Isn’t the lawyer bound by his quote?

A

Every lawyer’s bill can be revised and adjusted by the Registrar of the Supreme Court. From what you say, your will was quite complex so it is not likely that the lawyer will be bound by a quote for a “simple” will when the issues were as complex as you describe. NEW CLIENTS WELCOME

Perry Bruce continued, “Canadian coins prior to 1967, and American coins prior to 1964 are all made with silver, and we have noticed a large increase of customers coming to the Roadshow with coins and cashing them in for their silver value”. Experts at the Roadshow will evaluate and examine your items, FREE OF CHARGE, as well as educate you on them. The Roadshow sees hundreds of people during a one week event, and they have been travelling across Canada to different cities and towns, searching for your forgotten treasures. Trains, dolls, toys, old advertising signs, pocket watches, porcelain and bisque dolls, pretty much everything can be sold at the Roadshow. Any early edition Barbie’s are sought after by the Roadshow collectors, as well as a variety of

Dinky Toys and Matchbox cars. Lionel Trains and a variety of tin toys can also fetch a price, especially if they are in their original box or in mint condition. If a collector is looking for one of your collectibles, they can always make an offer to buy it. A man brought in a 1950’s Marx Tin Toy Robot, in fairly good condition, still in its original box. They were able to locate a collector for that speciÀc toy within minutes, and that gentleman went home with over $700 for his Toy Robot and a few other small toys. So whether you have an old toy car, a broken gold chain, or a Barbie sitting in the closet, bring it down to the Roadshow, they will take a look at it for FREE and it could put money in your pocket!

See you at the roadshow!

Surrey Little Theatre’s Loryn LeGear tests out some equipment for the 50 Hour Film Challenge.

50-hour contest returns to Surrey Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Budding and experienced filmmakers are hoping to write, shoot and edit a five-minute movie – and possibly win $500. Surrey Little Theatre is once again holding its 50 Hour Film Challenge, beginning Oct. 7, when teams receive their randomly selected “inspiration package,” that includes a list of required surprise elements. Over the next 50 hours, they will disburse and head out to various locations throughout the Lower

Mainland to create and edit their films. On Oct. 9, all teams must bring their finished products to the theatre for judging. Prizes will be awarded the following weekend (Oct. 15) at a Gala Filmmakers Reception, where all the short movies will be screened for the general public. “The challenge is similar to the popular 48 hour film challenge format with the addition of an extra two hours,” says event organizer, Brigitte Seib.

Colourful abstract geometric shapes and patterns bounce off the window perimeters and explore the outside surface of the Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre, appearing to get stuck where there is no space available to let them out. The digital artwork display, called Fiction Façade, is activated by movement in front of the Surrey Urban Screen, and projected on the side of the recreation centre. Created by Urban Visuals team (Konstantinos Mavromichalis & Nathan Whitford), the artwork animates sequences that recall arcade games like pinball. “It is reminiscent of early video games, with a kind of retro-futurism,” say the artists. “It is meant to addresses the site using the physical

attributes of the façade itself, drawing attention to the interaction of digital media and architectural form.” Fiction Façade also comes with accompanying sounds informed by older console-based 8 bit video games. Sounds are generated by collisions between the projected virtual objects seen in the animation and the physical objects such as the windows and borders of the building. Visitors can tune in to listen on their MP3 player or car stereo when in front of the artwork. The exhibition officially launched Friday and continues until Nov. 13. The rec centre is at 13458 107A Ave. Exhibitions begin 30 minutes after sundown, and end at midnight. Visit www.surreyurbanscreen.ca for more information.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Semi Supra finish second at Westerns Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

After a second-place finish at last year’s Women’s Western Classic Finals, members of the Semiahmoo Supra soccer team were primed and ready to improve upon that placing in 2011. But on Sunday, they fell one goal short, again settling for second place. And while most clubs would be thrilled to finish in the silver-medal position at a tournament that includes top over-35 teams from Alberta, Ontario and Quebec, the result stung for members of the Supra.

“It was harder this time – torturous really,” said Supra’s Nik Jillings. “To miss by one goal... it just sucks.” Supra won twice and tied once in the weekend event, which was held at West Vancouver’s Ambleside Park, but the tournament was a total-goals format, and Semiahmoo fell onegoal shy of Alberta in the race for first place. Semiahmoo beat Quebec 4-1, and followed with a 3-1 victory over Ontario before wrapping things up with a 0-0 draw against the eventual champs from Alberta. The Ontario contest was the one that, looking back on it, caused Jillings and her team-

mates the most grief. “It was a good win, 3-1, but really, it should have been about 7-1, and that ended up costing us. I’ve never seen a team hit so many posts, so many crossbars – so many close ones,” she said. “We’re just a little disappointed, and it was difficult to take because we should’ve walked away with gold. “We even heard from other teams who said we were the best team there.” A victory for Supra, the B.C. representatives after winning provincials in May, would have ensured a clean sweep for the host province, as B.C. claimed top spot in the men’s western

draw, which was played concurrently. With Westerns now complete, the Supra will return their attention to their Metro Women’s Soccer League schedule. So far this year, the over-35 team, which plays in the classics premier division, is undefeated through three games. They’re off this week for Thanksgiving, but hit the pitch again the following weekend. “Our team is actually pretty neat. We have a Canadian hall-of-fame player in Silvana Burtini, and we have great coach, (former national women’s team coach) Metro Gerela,” Jillings said.

Players set for pro seasons Visualize your dream sports

White Rock’s Colton Gillies is expected to be on the openingnight roster of the Minnesota Wild when the National Hockey League team kicks off its 2011/12 season Saturday against the Columbus Blue Jackets. All NHL teams were making final cuts this week, but as of press deadline Wednesday, Gillies was still with the Wild. Gillies, 22, was selected by the Wild in the first round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft and spent most of last two seasons with the Houston Aeros, the Wild’s American Hockey League affiliate, He did play seven games in Minnesota last season, scoring once. This year, with former Aeros’

coach Mike Yeo at the helm of the Wild, the six-foot-four Gillies was an off-season favourite for one of the team’s forward spots. Gillies signed a one-way contract, which pays him $600,000 whether he’s in the NHL or the

minors, in the summer. Gillies is one of two White Rock/South Surrey players who will be on NHL rosters this weekend, joining defenceman Jason Garrison, who plays for the Florida Panthers. A third Peninsula pro, blueliner Colten Teubert, who plays in the Edmonton Oilers’ system, was sent to Oklahoma City of the American Hockey League to start his second season as a pro. His preseason was derailed by a concussion suffered in a fight with Vancouver Canucks prospect Adam Polasek during a rookie tournament in September. - Nick Greenizan

Brand awareness an important consideration when choosing a home

Homeowners looking for proven success The world of advertising depends on brand awareness. Seeing the Golden Arches brings to mind McDonald’s, while Kleenex is said more often than facial tissue. So it comes as no surprise that brand awareness is becoming just as important in the new home world. “Brand awareness is really key,” says Morningstar Homes’ Vice-President of Sales and Marketing Deborah Calahan. “We knew that we had to make Morningstar a brand.” That branding has worked, since many people have said they were looking specifically for a Morningstar home, Calahan says. That has been especially obvious with the opening earlier this year of Avondale, in Coquitlam. “(My wife) was stalking the opening of Avondale,” says homeowner Jeff Dixon. “Morningstar’s quality and design were

something we were drawn to,” says Claudine Dixon. The success of Morningstar’s homes is an important piece of the puzzle, Calahan says. “Quality craftsmanship reinforces the brand,” she says. “When you’re buying (a new home) you want to know the company will back it up.” But Morningstar isn’t the only developer that depends on brand awareness. “Everyone knows the Bosa name,” says Jean Openshaw, the sales manager for Bosa Properties’ Viceroy. “Buying Bosa is one of the best things you can do.” Buyers have been flocking to check out the apartments, which Openshaw attributes to the respect that many have for Bosa. “The ... name stands for quality,” she says.

‘It has a real loft feel’

Arista: quiet family living in South Surrey by Colin Oswin

Get in at the start of a good thing with South Surrey’s Arista. Nestled on a quiet street in Surrey’s Morgan Heights neighbourhood, Arista is a 65-townhome project from developer Hayer Homes. The development features two- and three-bedroom homes on a pleasant, dead-end street, while remaining close to the action in South Surrey. Michelle Vance, marketing coordinator with Fifth Avenue Marketing, says Arista provides ready access to tons of shops at Morgan Crossing, Grandview Corners and Peninsula Village. Add that to the nearby Highway 99 and Arista is in an excellent spot. “I find it’s the perfect location, you’re in walking distance to plenty of shops,” she says. “It’s really close to the 99. For commuting, it’s great.” Phase one of the development has been completed, and several families have already settled in. Phase two is move-in ready. Darren Popoff moved in to his Arista home in late May, and he gives the development two thumbs up. He did his research before buying and found several stand-out features at Arista: its location on a dead end street, proximity to the shops at Morgan Crossing, high-quality construction and the relatively small size of the development. “It’s very appealing, especially having a young family,” he says. Each home at Arista comes with one big feature that stands out right away: 10-foot main-floor ceilings. Arriving on the show home’s main floor, the extra vertical space provides the visitor with a sense of extra breathing room. It’s an open, inviting place with an added sense of grandeur. It almost feels like there’s something subconscious going on until you remember: these are 10-foot ceilings. These tall ceilings were a major draw for Popoff as well. “I think it’s the only townhome that I’ve been in that has 10-foot ceilings,” he says. “It has a real loft feel.” The kitchens – which come with granite countertops, double-basin sinks and stainless-steel appliances – come with islands to provide a barrier between the family room and great room. The space remains open, but it’s broken up enough to lend a sense of character to each room.

All finishings are included – we don’t do optional upgrades,” says marketing co-ordinator Michelle Vance.

coming developments, Vance says Arista’s high-quality finishings help it stand out from the pack. And when you visit the show home, what you see is what you get. “All finishings are included – we don’t do optional upgrades,” she says. “Price point-wise we’re right in line with our competition. So you pay the same price, but you’re getting more included.” Popoff adds that the developer, Hayer, has been very respectful during

the process of building phase three, and the family-run business clearly cares about the families moving in. “Being a small development, the company behind it, Hayer, is on site every day,” she says. “If you have an issue you can deal directly with the company, you’re not just a number in a big company.” Homes start in the mid-$300,000s. For more information, check out aristaliving.com or call the sales centre at 604-536-8887.

Homeowners will find plush loop carpeting leading up the stairs and into the bedrooms. Up here, the ceilings reach nine feet. The bedrooms come with tons of storage. The closets aren’t walk-in, but they are impressively wide. Two full bathrooms are located upstairs, with porcelain tiles and granite countertops. The master ensuite comes with a walk-in shower, while the main bathroom contains a deep, luxurious soaker tub. While the area has several up-and-

Submitted photos

You will never lack space at Hayer Homes’ Arista development in South Surrey. With 10-foot ceilings on the main floor and an open-plan layout, homeowners will be impressed with the high quality of the finishings.

PRIVATE School for Children with Learning Disabilities and/or ADHD Opening in Surrey, British Columbia. Eaton Arrowsmith School (EAS) is opening a branch of their school in Surrey, British Columbia in September 2012. Currently, Eaton Arrowsmith School has branches in Vancouver and Victoria. The school is designed to improve the cognitive functioning of children with learning disabilities and/or attention disorders. Known as neuroplasticity, this improvement of cognitive functioning involves a regimen of cognitive exercises. These exercises, in turn, alter the brain’s neuronal structure and reorganize neural networks and their functions. This results in significantly reduced need for academic support and accommodations. The Arrowsmith School was recently named “The Most Innovative Special Education School” by Sharpbrains.com 2010 Innovation Awards in neuroscience. The Arrowsmith Program is now being utilized in schools across North America. Information Sessions for EAS Surrey will take place at the following locations and dates: October 15th, Saturday - Northview Golf & Country Club - 6857 - 168th Street, Surrey 10 am to 12 pm - November 30th, Wednesday - Ocean Prominade Hotel, 15611 Marine Drive, White Rock - 7 pm to 9 pm - January 24th, Wednesday - Hazelmere Golf & Country Club - 18150 8th Avenue, Surrey - 7 pm to 9 pm. Please RSVP for the information session contact Yuki Ihara at 604-264-8327 or email at reception@eatonarrowsmithschool.com. For anyone interested in more information about EAS Surrey please contact Sandra Heusel, Director of Admissions EAS Vancouver and EAS Surrey at 604264-8327 or sheusel@eatonarrowsmithschool.com

Mom passed away at the Peace Arch Hospital after a long battle with cancer and will be sadly missed by all the family. Mom was born Ida Constance Johnson in Victoria, B.C. Connie was raised by the Jessie Howard family in Kitsilano, Vancouver. After her marriage (1946) to Angus (deceased), they moved to the family summer home in Ocean Park, Surrey, B.C. in 1949 to raise their sons Daniel, William (deceased), John and Bruce. Mom will be sadly missed her grandchildren Jason (Amanda) Danielle (Jamie) and great grandchildren Elijha & Nathan. She will also be sadly missed by her many nieces and nephews, friends and neighbours. Mom was a working mother who started working at Johnies Cafe; then at the Central Plaza Bakery and finally Sholtens Bakery in White Rock. She was a very compassionate, loving, giving and forgiving person. Special thanks to Dr. Lowe, the PA Hospice staff and the amazing Home Care nursing staff. There will be no funeral service as per her wishes.

Home & Garden – PART 2

Beautiful, natural and authentic

F

or the sake of the environment, current trends are taking us back to our roots, back to the way our ancestors used nature’s materials in their homes. The desire to use clean, environmentally friendly materials means a return to wood, stone, and concrete left in their natural state as much as possible. In shop showrooms, eye-catching furniture and accessories seem to have arrived fresh from natural landscapes. They are composed of branches and grasses, rattan, wool, and skins, as well as other hand-made products that evoke a distant past. A sub-trend toward an “unrefined” look favours a shabby, aged effect. Products with lots of personality are in style, as are furnishings that show obvious signs of wear, such as raw wood furniture or objects with visible welding seams.

Shades of colour with a patina of age are being used to embellish interiors. Colours are also inspired by the simplicity of the natural world, much as they were during the arts and crafts period, when interiors were designed to be merged with nature, warm, and comforting. In a modern twist, denim is inspiring home fashions from the table to the bed, as faded indigo influences bed linens and bath towels. The ‘authentic’ theme of colours for this year signals simplicity and peace and celebrates the enduring beauty of nature. This palette illustrates our growing appreciation for the materials and creativity of nature, as it features wood, clay, earth, and denim tones that can be enlivened by a dash of yellow-beige.

Create a laundry room that’s a pleasure to use When it comes to household chores, at the top of the list of the daily grind are washing the dishes and doing laundry. While these day-to-day responsibilities are never really much fun, it helps to have a workspace that is efficient and pleasant, a concept that we often consider in kitchen design. But what makes a streamlined laundry space? No matter where your laundry room is situated, it is always advisable to plan a storage space close by where you can keep detergents and other cleaning products. There is usually room on the wall over laundry machines to install a cupboard or shelving unit for this purpose. If your laundry room is in the basement, the installation of a laundry chute will save you a lot of walking. A laundry sink, which is deeper than an ordinary sink, will allow you to soak stained clothing, while a rod will be useful for hanging clothes that don’t go in the dryer. Other features that will add to your efficiency include a table for folding clothes, a space for the ironing board, and perhaps even a sewing corner for mending clothes. The two most important decorating elements in a laundry room are lighting and flooring. Recessed lighting is very efficient for this type of room, and it goes without saying that the floor has to be easy to maintain. The main goal is to make this room

Having proper cupboards, shelving and folding areas in your laundry room can help make washing clothes less of a chore. functional and pleasant. If the sight of an overflowing laundry basket fills you with dread, why not add a radio or wire in an outlet from your main stereo so that you can whistle while you fold towels. Having a well-organized, streamlined laundry room may not take all the work out of washing clothes, but it can certainly help make the process a little bit more enjoyable.

Prepare for cozy season Important ¿replace safety tips for cold winter months People looking to embrace the cold-weather season often find snuggling up in front of a roaring fire is both relaxing and warming. Ensuring fireplaces are prepared for a season of use is important from a safety standpoint and for personal comfort as well. One of the most important steps to fireplace maintenance and preparation is having the entire thing cleaned by a professional. A chimney sweep will clean out the entire chimney, and many use a high-powered vacuum so that there is no soot or dust entering the home. Depending on the range of services, some sweeps also offer a series of inspections of the chimney, interior flue and checks of attic spaces for any damaged areas that will need repair. It is also important to inspect a fireplace screen or guard to ensure it can safely protect against embers escaping the fireplace. In homes where there are young children, an added barrier may be needed in front of the

Before you settle in for a winter full of warm, cozy fires, be sure you take a number of important safety steps. fireplace to prevent little hands from touching the hot screen. Be sure to open up the chimney flue before starting any fire. This allows fresh air to feed the fire and will enable smoke to exit the home. Failure to open the flue can result in smothering, dirty smoke filling the home quickly. The flue should be closed after the fire is completely extinguished so that animals and outside debris don’t enter the home via the opening.

It’s also important to have a metal container for removing and storing hot ashes handy. Embers and ashes can stay hot for quite some time, so they should be placed outdoors, ideally far from the home so they don’t set anything ablaze. Educate household members about the rules of fireplace use. They should be aware that no items should be discarded into the fire to avoid toxic fumes or dangerous embers.

Designers are pretty unanimous in saying that mouldings have become as important as paint, furniture fabric, and accessories. Forget the idea that they are the reserve of old-fashioned rooms; according to many top decorators, mouldings are now a part of modern, stylish and original interiors. These days, manufacturers are offering a broader variety of decorative mouldings in different types of wood and in MDF (wood fibre), both of which can be installed easily by homeowners. Although the trend is towards outsized mouldings, balance is essential. For example, in a 10-by-10-foot room, a crown moulding of 3½-inches will finish the room perfectly. If the room is substantially bigger, a larger crown moulding would be more suitable. Mouldings can also be used to lower a wall that appears too high by placing the strips about six inches from the ceiling. If you decide to do the work yourself, let the mouldings acclimatize for a day or two in the room where they’ll be installed. For hardwood mouldings, it is advisable to drill the holes in them before installation in order to avoid cracking, particularly if you are using a hammer instead of a compressor. If the mouldings you have selected need to be stained, perform a stain test first to ensure the end result is what you’re looking for. Be sure to conduct this test on the same type of wood as your mouldings, sanded with the same

Decorative mouldings can enrich and enhance any room, when chosen properly. grade of sandpaper. When painting mouldings, select a higher sheen thatn that of your walls. This will highlight their stylish curves and make them easier to maintain. As with any decor improvement in your home, be sure to select a style, size and colour that creates a luxurious flow and balance you’ll be happy with for years to come.

Winter-proof the patio

Always the Best Value In Town!

Preparing outdoor furniture now can prevent damage It’s a common reaction: as soon as the first nice day of spring arrives, we all want to sit outside on our patios and enjoy some fresh, warm air. But what condition will your outdoor furniture be in? Certainly you won’t want to spend the entire day cleaning off all the encrusted dirt that accumulated during the course of the previous summer. Do it now and your outdoor furniture will be ready when spring rolls around. Plus, if you do it now, it won’t take as long. Just don’t wait until it is too late. There is a wide range of cleaning, waxing and protective products designed specifically for synthetic resin furniture. By following the manufacturer’s instructions, you can remove even the most stubborn dirt and stains. Applying wax will further protect the material from dust and keep it looking clean and shiny. Once you have finished, protect chairs and tables with a plastic cover; even

Gathering around a table to share a meal is a ritual as old as civilization itself. At no time is this more important than during the holidays. To create a dining room for holiday hosting that works for you, whatever your style: • The dining table: The shape of your dining table should relate to the overall shape of the dining room’s space. A rectangular room calls for a rectangular or oval table and the squarer the room, the better a round table looks in it. Dining tables should be 30-inches high and you should be sure to leave enough space between the dining table and the walls so you and your guests can maneuver around it. And, according to Griffin, allowing 18 inches of table per person is a good rule of thumb in determining the size. • Dining chairs: First and foremost, dining chairs should be comfortable – upholstered or cushioned seats are a must and upholstered backs provide added comfort and help absorb sound – an important consideration for this room, where the premium is often on conversation. The seating should be at least 16-to-18 inches off the floor to the top of the seat, including any cushions. • Windows: Dining room windows should enhance conversations around the table, not detract from them. Harsh glare, prying eyes and expanses of dark glass at night can all make the dining experience a less than optimal one. The right window coverings can make a difference.

An elegant dining room will make for unforgettable holiday parties this season. • Rugs: If you choose one, be aware that they can get “crumby” and make it difficult to slide chairs in and out, remember a dark-coloured rug is better because spills will not stand out. Patterns tend to camouflage stains better than solid rugs, though be careful not to select a pattern that is too busy for a room’s décor. • Table Settings: Last but certainly not least, decorative place mats and coordinating settings add instant personality to the room while incorporating an extra element of color. Especially for the holidays, create a festive centerpiece by filling a crystal bowl with fresh cranberries. For place cards, use holiday cards in small gilded frames. -News Canada

Keep hardwood healthy Over the years, home interior trends have continued to change. Hardwood floors, however, are one popular trend that has managed to maintain its popularity. Renters and homeowners alike are head over heels for hardwood floors, enjoying their aesthetic appeal and their tendency to never go out of style, particularly when compared to other flooring alternatives. Hardwood floors can also be much easier to maintain. Whereas carpets are susceptible to hard-toremove stains and dirt that might never go away, hardwood floors can be very easy to clean, maintaining their “good as new” look for years if homeowners take simple steps to keep them clean. • Be diligent on a daily basis. Hardwood floors are typically easier to maintain than carpet, but that doesn’t mean homeowners should be lax with regards to hardwood floors. Some daily maintenance can significantly increase the floor’s life expectancy. Should any spills occur, clean up after them immediately to avoid warping. In addition,

Simple cleaning tips can keep hardwood floors looking great for years. address any scuff marks at night after dinner. • Sweep or mop on a regular basis. A dry microfiber mop will keep the floor clean and looking good while ensuring there is no water damage. It might not be necessary to mop every day, but homeowners who want to extend their floor’s life can use a broom or vacuum to keep their floor dirt-free. • Periodically give the floor a thorough cleaning. It isn’t necessary to give the floor a thorough cleaning every night before going to bed. However, every so often thoroughly clean the floor

beyond dry mopping or vacuuming. Check with the manufacturer before doing anything, as the type of floor will dictate which is the best approach. Some manufacturers suggest certain polishes or cleaning solutions, while others advise against such options. If there are no manufacturer instructions, a damp cloth is almost always a viable way to clean a hardwood floor. Dampen a cloth and scrub the floor but be sure to avoid soaking the cloth. A soaked cloth will likely cause water damage, while a damp cloth will pick up dirt and debris without harming the floor. Once finished, go over the floor with a dry rag to reduce the risk of water damage. When purchasing a care kit for wood floors, be careful to read the ingredients first. Some kits contain ingredients that can be very harmful to floors. Wood floors remain one of the most popular flooring options for homeowners, and some simple maintenance can keep hardwood floors looking good for years to come.
