Action on new city hall ‘long overdue’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

White Rock needs a new city hall. It’s a statement that’s been made time and again for at least a decade. As officials confirm similar conversations are once again underway, at least one veteran councillor says it’s high time the issue moved

beyond just talk. “I’ve been talking about a new city hall for 10 years, 11 years,” Coun. Mary-Wade Anderson, who was first elected in 1999, said Monday. “We need a new city hall now. We have needed one, and it’s time we got on with it.” The existing municipal building, at 15322

Buena Vista Ave., sits on city land bordered by Pacific Avenue to the south, Fir Street to the west, Buena Vista Avenue to the north and Centre Street to the east. The city’s police and fire departments share the site, along with White Rock Library. The city hall itself was built in 1962 – and it is showing its age, Anderson said.

“There’s no return air, there’s no air conditioning, there’s no proper heating… the carpet is all worn, the furnace is getting old and there’s no elevator,” she said. “It’s certainly not representative of the majority of chambers in the Lower Mainland, most of whom are getting new ones.”  see page 4

Trustees warn they can’t rely on surplus funds every year

School district ‘dodged a bullet’ with budget Black Press

The Surrey Board of Education has managed to balance its budget for the upcoming school year, but trustees warn that while they “dodged a bullet” this year, that might not be the case in the future. The Surrey School District was

anticipating a shortfall of up to $10 million for the 2011-12 school year. However, money left over from the current year totalling about $7.1 million – saved by having spent less than expected on things such snow clearing, light and heat – helped bail the district out of a deficit situation.

While that’s good news today, said trustee Terry Allen, the situation is one that’s unsustainable and leaves Surrey vulnerable. “The use of one-time surplus funds to support ongoing expenditures does create financial challenges that will need to be addressed,” said Allen, chair of the

Support Your Local Economy Spend Your Money At Home

budget committee. Board chair Laurae McNally said that without the savings found this year, there would have been cuts to staff and/or programs this fall. “In future years, that surplus may not be there, we don’t know. You can’t rely on it,” McNally said. “We dodged the bullet this year –

but you can’t count on dodging the bullet every year,” she said. Another $3.7 million or so in savings was also found by reassigning resources and reducing various expenditures. Turning out lights and limiting paper has saved muchneeded dollars, McNally said.  see page 4

news ‘Surrey Six’ investigators face 20 charges

Four officers charged with obstruction Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A special prosecutor has approved numerous charges against four Mounties involved in the so-called “Surrey Six” homicide case. A total of 20 charges have been approved against RCMP officers Derek Brassington, David Attew, Paul Johnston and Danny Michaud, who were all involved in the investigation of a North Surrey mass murder, in which six people were killed in a Whalley highrise in October 2007. Two of the six killed were innocent bystanders: 22-year-old Chris Mohan from Surrey

and Ed Schellenberg, 55, of Abbotsford. Earlier this year, the province’s Criminal Justice Branch announced that special prosecutor Christopher Considine was appointed to look into allegations of an inappropriate relationship between an officer involved in the investigation and a potential witness. Brassington and Attew each face charges of breach of trust, obstruction of justice and fraud, while Johnston and Michaud face charges of breach of trust and obstruction of justice. Several people have been charged in the 2007 slaying.

In April 2009, Dennis Karbovanec, then 27, was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 15 years after pleading guilty to three counts of second-degree murder and one count of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder. Karbovanec struck a plea bargain with prosecutors that meant he would have a chance of leaving prison sooner than he would if convicted of first-degree murder. James Bacon is charged with one count of first-degree murder and one count of conspiracy to commit murder in the case, while Cody Rae Haevischer and Matthew Johnson

are each charged with six counts of firstdegree murder and one count of conspiracy. Quang Vinh Thang Le and Sophon Sek are also charged in the case. Mayor Dianne Watts said Thursday she’s extremely dismayed at the turn of events this week. “I will say that I’m very disappointed. We hold our police officers in very high regard,” Watts said. “Certainly, my hope is that this will not affect the prosecution of the case especially when the families have been through so much.”

North Surrey homicide

Shooting victim was out on bail Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A man killed Friday in a gangrelated shooting in North Surrey had been released on bail last year for his role in a home invasion. Police have identified the deceased as 24-year-old Christopher Reddy, who was a resident of Vancouver, with family living in Surrey. Witnesses told Black Press they heard between 12 and 20 gun shots in rapid succession near 131 Street and 111 Avenue at about 3:40 p.m. Police arrived to find a man with multiple gunshot wounds. Officers began CPR on the victim, but he succumbed to his injuries. RCMP Sgt. Peter Thiessen said Friday the shooting appears to be gang-related and the victim was known to Lower Mainland police. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team took over the case. In 2006, Reddy was charged in a home invasion in Chilliwack, where he broke into a home, beat a man and held a gun to the man’s wife. Reddy and two masked men, armed with handguns and a sawedoff shotgun, broke into the home on Chilliwack Lake Road, believing there was a marijuana grow operation inside. There wasn’t. But the homeowner, 46, put up such a violent struggle that he was tied up and pistol-whipped, and his 36-year-old wife had a gun pointed to her head as she was dragged around the house by her hair. Reddy pleaded guilty to breakand-enter, robbery with a firearm, unlawful confinement, wearing a mask in the commission of a crime and assault. He did not plead guilty to assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose and uttering threats. The trial faced almost four years in delays while Reddy appealed a 2005 weapons possession. He was acquitted on those charges. Because of those delays, the judge feared Reddy would not see trial on the break and enter, so in an unusual move, she released him on bail last year on the condition that he return to Surrey to live with his mother until his next court date. – with files from Robert Freeman

Locked-out members of the Canadian Postal Workers Union from locals across the Lower Mainland converge on MP Russ Hiebert’s office.

58-hour filibuster ends in back-to-work vote

Posties protest as MPs pass legislation Alex Browne Staff Reporter

Mail could be arriving in letter boxes as soon as today (Tuesday), following passage of backto-work legislation in the House of Commons and the Senate. The legislation was passed Saturday night in the House, following a 58-hour filibuster by Opposition NDP MPs. It was passed by the Senate after a lengthy sitting Sunday, during which senators heard testimony from federal ministers, Canada Post and members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers. It received a rough ride from some senators during subsequent debate, including Liberal Terry Mercer, who was quoted as calling it “the beginning of an attack on public service unions” and Progressive Conservative Lowell Murray who described it “contemptuous in its attitude toward a labour union of any kind.” Reaction by local postal workers to the impending legislation reflected the defiance exhibited by union members across the country – and their position that they were being denied the chance to work and negotiate by

Canada Post’s June 10 lockout, which had followed a series of rotating strikes by the union. With chants of “negotiate, not legislate” and “we wanna work,” – and frequent honking horns from passing motorists – some 70 postal workers gathered outside Conservative MP Russ Hiebert’s South Surrey constituency office June 24. Hiebert, himself, was in Ottawa, where the NDP filibuster was continuing on Labour Minister Lisa Raitt’s bill – which called for “a final offer binding selection” between Canada Post and the union to end the dispute. Hiebert had told Peace Arch News at the time the legislation was introduced that it was “the way to go.” “Both sides put forward their best offer and the arbitrator decides which one is the winner,” he said last week. “What this does is it forces them to be reasonable – it’s a healthy way to resolve a labour dispute. It’s fair and it results in a final contract.” The South Surrey protesters represented job sites throughout the Fraser Valley West local of the CUPW, local president Stephen Gale said. “We want Russ and all the MPs to understand

the fact that we need to get back to work,” he said. “All day yesterday we heard Conservatives (in the House of Commons) referring to a strike. It’s not a strike – we’re locked out.” Gale said Friday the union would go back “tomorrow” under the terms of the expired collective agreement, and continue negotiations for a new contract. He noted that in response to an appeal from Raitt, the union had agreed to cease rotating strikes – under those conditions – as far back as June 10, after which workers were locked out by Canada Post. He said the workers were appreciative of last ditch NDP efforts to amend the bill to take out conditions that would make it hard for them to submit a final offer to the arbitrator, including a wage level that is actually below Canada Post’s most recent offer. “This is punitive legislation,” he said. “We want to negotiate. It’s a fundamental right and the government is trying to take it away from us. “We’re not going to tolerate that; we’re not going to go down quietly. We want to do what we do, which is to provide a service to people in the community.”

Partnership hoped to limit costs  from page 1 In White Rock, “it keeps getting put off and put off.” But if the city’s latest annual report is any indication, there is renewed hope. According to the report, released earlier this month, determining the future of the municipal offices was identified as a key strategic goal in 2010, with implementation of any direction from council to get underway in 2012. Mayor Catherine Ferguson said she expects that direction will come before the fall. A review of the city’s options is to come to council in July, she said. Ferguson said she “can’t imagine” what kind of cost would be attached to such a project. However, she is hopeful a partnership could be reached with a developer in order to keep the burden off of taxpayers – “but that all remains to be seen at this time.”

The current White Rock City Hall was built in 1962. Ferguson and Anderson both said it makes sense that a new city hall would be multi-purpose, to make best use of the space. More and more, cities are opening up their municipal halls for community events, from weddings to theatre productions, Ferguson said. While a site has not been identified, Anderson said a city hall in

the town centre would promote business and revitalization there. Coun. Al Campbell agreed. He said addressing the issue is long overdue but he is confident talk, this time, will evolve into action. “Something has to be done. The next term, I guarantee you, whoever’s on (council), they will be coming to a conclusion. “It won’t be let go now.”

Enrolment continues to escalate  from page 1 “They sound like petty little things but they do add up over time.” Unlike most school districts in B.C., student enrolment continues to climb in Surrey. An estimated 70,360 full-time students are expected to attend local schools in September – an increase of more than 1,000. Surrey’s $570-million operat-

ing budget includes the hiring of about 55 more teachers and 35 educational assistants to cover the influx of new students. By law, B.C. school boards are required to submit a balanced budget annually to the Ministry of Education. The district has yet to receive any capital dollars from the province. It’s been six years since

money was allocated to Surrey to build new school space, leaving thousands of students learning in the more than 230 portables littering local school grounds. B.C. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon (Surrey-Cloverdale MLA) promised recently that a capital funding injection is imminent. McNally says she’ll believe it when she sees it.

news National survey influences funding

Surrey mayor urges residents to respond Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Better transit, road networks, social programs and general funding can all get a significant boost if people participate in the largest voluntary poll ever conducted by the federal government. The National Household Survey, which replaced the previous long-form Census, has been delivered to one in three homes across

the country by the federal government. The survey differs from the Canada Census in that it delves much deeper into the details of people living here. The information gives the government a much better idea of which services are needed where. Surrey council has been lobbying for at-grade rail and better transit for some time. “The city has said this information will be very valuable in showing the growth,” said

Peter Liang, Census communications manager for Statistics Canada. “With accurate results they will be able to put forward a stronger case.” Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts urges people to fill out the forms for a few reasons. “I think it’s important for us to get an indication as to what the population looks like and some in-depth questions that need to be answered,” Watts said, adding it helps the city

lobby for services and ensures Surrey gets the appropriate per-capita funding from senior levels of government. “When we’re underestimated, we lose out.” Both Liang and Watts are encouraging those who have received the forms to fill them out. The deadline for completing the forms is fast approaching. Recipients of the forms who have not filled them out will likely receive a reminder to complete them.

In April the City of White Rock hosted a two day integrated design charrette as part of the study for the Town Centre Urban Design Plan. Volunteer residents joined a larger group, consisting of representatives from various City Committees, local business interest groups, developers and Town Centre land owners. During the charrette, they explored options for conceptual land use and building layouts, open space and streetscape improvements, green infrastructure strategies, street crosssections and conceptual diagrams/ drawing describing the ideas. White Rock’s Department of Planning and Development Services have reviewed all the information and would like to share it with you at this Community Information Night! The stakeholders and volunteers who attended the charrette will also be invited to the Community Information Night. We look forward to seeing you at our Community Information Night!

Finance Minister urging commerce leaders to ‘sell’ HST

Business support sought Tom Fletcher Black Press

Finance Minister Kevin Falcon’s speaking tour took him to the Victoria Chamber of Commerce last week, telling business leaders they can “unashamedly” advocate for a harmonized sales tax with a lower rate. Business people reminded Falcon at the meeting Wednesday that not all of them support the HST, and asked why the rate reduction from 12 to 10 per cent can’t take place right away. Falcon replied that the loss of that much revenue has to be phased in over three years, as the federal government did when it lowered the goods and services tax. Reducing it faster would risk downgrading the province’s triple-A credit rating, Falcon said, so the B.C. government chose to offer $200 million worth of transition

A flashing sign at Stayte Road and Marine Drive reminds drivers of the limit.

New signs target speeding drivers Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Flashing speed-limit signs popping up around White Rock are hoped to quell the pace of drivers along key city roads. The first, at the corner of Stayte Road and Marine Drive, was installed about a week ago, and began working June 20. Directed at westbound drivers, it’s intended to remind those coming from Surrey that the speed limit drops to 30 km/h along the popular waterfront strip. “In Surrey, it’s 60 (km/h), and they’re coming into 30, so it’s really an abrupt change,” said Paul Slack, the city’s operations manager. Sgt. Roland Pierschke said motorists on Marine Drive have been clocked at 80 and 90 km/h. He noted that, in recent weeks, police have impounded the vehicles of at least three drivers who were travelling far too fast – more than 50 km/h over the posted limit. On a first offence for excessive speeding, racing or stunting, police can impound a vehicle for seven days. Other signs are to go up at the west end of Marine Drive, where the speed limit dips to 30 km/h from 50 – for eastbound motorists – and on North Bluff Road, approaching Earl Marriott Secondary. In the latter, the sign will flash the 50 km/h speed limit to eastbound drivers. “I don’t see too many people just going 50 along North Bluff,” Slack said. Police input helped determine the locations and type of sign. They flash

the speed limit rather than drivers’ current speed because drivers respond better, Slack said. “We’ve heard that if it flashes your speed, some people try to see how fast they can go.” The signs only activate when a driver is travelling over the posted speed limit. Pierschke said police will, at random, set up a block or two down from the sites to drive home the limit to those who choose to ignore the reminder. “Don’t be surprised if you drive by the sign, it tells you you’re going too fast, and the next block there’s a police officer giving you a ticket,” he said. Slack said early indications are the signs will work. In early monitoring of the first site, drivers could be seen to slow down, he said. “You can see the tail lights – brake lights – come on.” Cost of the signs, including installation, is about $15,000 each – a price Slack said is worthwhile. “I think the safety factor outweighs any cost right now,” he said, adding that while the posts are permanent, the speed sign boxes can be moved, should other worrisome locations be identified. Pierschke, too, is confident the flashing signs will have an impact, noting they have made a difference in communities such as Maple Ridge. He added the data collected by the units – including traffic volume, time of day and average speed – will also help police tailor their enforcement and provide insight into whether existing strategies are working.

Three injured in crash A head-on collision in South Surrey sent three people to hospital Sunday morning. The crash occurred around 7:30 p.m. June 26, in the 4100-block of 192 Street. According to police, witnesses reported seeing a white Tracker being driven erratically southbound on 192 Street just before the crash. It crossed the centre line into

oncoming traffic and collided head-on with a northbound Volkswagen. The Tracker came to rest on the side of the road, its front end facing the street; the Volkswagen stopped at an angle across one lane. A 22-year-old Surrey woman and two people from Alberta – a 31-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman – were taken

to hospital with nonlifethreatening injuries. Two were airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital; one was transported by ambulance. Investigation into the crash is ongoing. Anyone with information who has not already spoken to police is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604599-0502. - Tracy Holmes

Appointment a good one

T

he federal government is expected to announce that former B.C. premier Gordon Campbell will be Canada’s next high commissioner to Great Britain (in other words, the ambassador). While this has caused some snarky comments in B.C., where Campbell’s popularity remains on par with a snake’s belly, this is a good appointment. Campbell served as B.C. premier for nine years, and was the first premier since Bill Bennett to win three consecutive terms in office. He did so during some challenging times. When he assumed office in 2001, the B.C. economy was coming out of a recession and badly needed a shot of confidence. When he stepped down earlier this year, the economy had weathered another recession, although it may not weather the fury over the HST, which cost Campbell his job and may well cost his party the government. While he obviously blew it with the HST on many levels, Campbell’s overall track record on job creation, economic development, infrastructure, the 2010 Winter Olympics and debt management was quite good. Perhaps most importantly, he is a visionary – he isn’t afraid to think differently, and while he sometimes gets off base, he often has the ability to see a new approach to a problem. The former premier has a good reputation among those he worked with over the years, from cabinet ministers to fellow premiers and the prime minister. He worked well with the federal government on many issues. He wouldn’t have been asked to do this job if the current Conservative government didn’t see something he can bring to it. He joins former Manitoba premier Gary Doer (a former NDP premier, in fact) as an ambassador. Doer was named ambassador to the United States by the Stephen Harper government in 2009. While those who are upset with the BC Liberals may not like this appointment, they need to look beyond provincial politics. Campbell is a capable individual who will represent Canada very well in the U.K., which remains a very important trading partner and one of Canada’s major allies in Europe. It is also home to our system of government and the Royal Family, who remain strongly linked to Canada. He is a deserving candidate for this appointment. It is significant that a former B.C. premier will take up this important post.

Follow letter of court ruling Editor: Re: Postal workers protest legislation, June 22. While I appreciate your reporter writing this story, there is one message that was missed. While these locked-out postal workers were protesting outside of MP Russ Hiebert’s office, they went inside and delivered a message to his staff. That message was: we are going to be watching the vote on this legislation very carefully and we urge him to vote with his conscience and to vote considering the legal right to free collective bargaining. The postal workers are more than willing to go back to work tomorrow under the terms of the old collective agreement and continue to negotiate freely with Canada Post without government interference. I do not understand how Hiebert (South Surrey-White RockCloverdale) can state this legislation is “a healthy way to resolve a labour dispute.” There was a recent Supreme Court decision that upheld the right to free collective bargaining. Let us work and let us negotiate a fair collective agreement. One last note, Mr. Hiebert, postal workers have very long memories and we will not forget what you and your government are trying to do to us with this legislation. We will be around four years from now when you are trying to get re-elected and we will remember. Stephen Gale, Surrey

Make offenders pay their share Editor: Now that it appears at long last that spring and summer may be imminent, some concerns and complaints about White Rock beach are raising their ugly heads: • Parking police. I recall a couple of years ago it was proposed a $50 fee for a non-resident parking sticker. It was reported to be received as too expensive. My solution, make it $100 and continue to collect $3 an hour from the occasionals. • Dogs on beach and promenade. Allow leashed dogs on both. Feces not cleaned up by owner, $1,000 fine. It is a serious health hazard. • Smoking on beach and promenade – $500 fine. Health hazard. • Apparent school-age groups were observed, while visiting, playing on the railroad tracks. Also, adults accompanying them were observed smoking in an illegal smoking area. I don’t know what an appropriate sanction would be, but as a parent and taxpayer, I would not employ the responsible adults involved. The beach and promenade is a treasure. Let us treat it as such and deploy the resources being expended on parking-infraction enforcement to the customers of the beach businesses, on the infractions that damage the beach experience.

Some react with violence to the Vancouver Canucks’ loss in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals June 16.

Discouraging riotous behaviour Editor: There has to be better way to punish people who break the law, thieve and create riots. These are people who have no respect for decency. There has to be some type of punishment for those who are proven guilty, as a real deterrent – not just a fine or a slap on the wrist but something those individuals will remember for the rest of their lives. It has been suggested that those convicted should receive 10 or 15 lashes. That might do the trick and prove to be a real discouragement for future misbehaviour. M.L. Eisner, Surrey

Brutes and consequences Did some young people mimic the on-ice violence committed during the Stanley Cup series, thus contributing to the 2011 hockey riots? We have to remember these people look up to athletes as mentors and heroes. Of course, this doesn’t justify their actions, but we need to understand this type of mentality has developed amongst young people. The Canucks-Boston series could have been one of finesse and skill. Instead it became a hooligans’ blood sport of dirty hits and numerous player injuries. I am a hockey fan – not just a Canucks fan – and I greatly admire the skill of all NHL players. It was tragic that two of my favourite young players – Mason Raymond and Nathan Horton – suffered critical injuries in the series. Neither should have occurred. It could have been a great series to remember for years to come. Unfortunately, players on both teams acted like spoiled brats. When Canucks were losing in Boston, Canucks players started initiating fights for no reason. And when a Boston player committed a dirty hit from behind on Daniel Sedin, his reason for doing seemed to be “because I can.” How many rioters might be saying the same thing right now to justify their inexcusable actions? Game 7 was the biggest disgrace. The referees seemed to have forgotten the rules of the game as both teams committed atrocious acts of escalating violence. Hockey is a great game and doesn’t need to be soiled by dirty tactics and violence. Why doesn’t the Workers Compensation Board get involved and hold league management accountable for this type of blatant violence resulting in horrible injuries. After all, the rink is still a job setting for the players. The players have families and personal lives outside that rink. The only reason the league continues to justify minimal suspensions and not enforce rules of common sense is to sell tickets. Blood sports have been profitable since the Dark Ages. This type of play isn’t hockey, and it is a criminal way for the league to make a profit. I don’t feel this is the players’ fault; it is league management who should be ultimately responsible for

providing a safe arena for hockey play. Yes, hockey can be a safe and fun game to watch. Bad behaviour needs to have consequences. Colin Fletcher, White Rock

A kinder, gentler game Re: Name of the game, June 22 letters. I wish to commend letter-writer Andrew King for his disgust at the inherent violence and sanctioned assault that characterizes hockey. King challenges the NHL “to outlaw and penalize acts of brutality and violence.” Excellent! But King does not go nearly far enough. Here are new rules that will civilize this nasty game: • The pace must be slowed to prevent injuries from accidental body contact. Players would wear wristspeedometers to self-monitor their speed. Three pacereferees would be added to the ice. If more than three players received “speed” penalties in a single period, the game would be stopped while the entire team watched a video to correct their behaviour. • Body contact would be outlawed. Slight contact would result in a five-minute penalty. Deliberate body contact? A game misconduct. Boarding – good heavens – a fivegame suspension and 100 hours of community work. • Fighting? Offenders should be charged with assault and held in jail without bail, the team fined $200,000. • Slap shots must be outlawed. These 95-m.p.h. missiles are simply too fast and dangerous. Wrist shots must be under 40 m.p.h. and from a distance of no less than 20 feet from goal. The pace referees will clock all shots. • Before the game, all players must sing their national anthem loudly and with vigor. Those who do not know the words will be provided with song sheets. These new rules are a modest beginning to re-creating this wonderful game as a sterling example of sportsmanship and courteous behaviour for our young. The fact the game will now be not unlike a hybrid of lawn bowling and chess is immaterial – and, it should be noted, young people have a great deal more to learn from lawn bowling and chess than they ever will from hockey!

The friends founded Beach Travellers eight years ago, after graduating from Elgin Park Secondary and exploring parts of Southeast Asia. Hermiston travelled in the region for half a year, and was joined by Barker for close to two months. “We came back and we were like ‘this changed our lives,’” Hermiston said. “We were both looking for our passions. We thought, ‘what if we could change other people’s lives like that?’” The 26-year-olds – who knew each other when they were kids and reconnected in high school – “dove in head first,” using money they had saved to materialize their vision of an adventure-travel company that reflects a backpacking experience by taking clients off the beaten path, but also provides the security and convenience of a large tour operation. “We had a lot of trial and error,” Hermiston admitted, noting they kept their plans under wraps until the business was incorporated and its website launched. They appealed to local post-secondary students at first, before embarking on a three-month road trip across Canada and doing presentations at universities along the way.

TJ Hermiston and Graeme Barker’s adventure-travel company, Beach Travellers, takes people all over the world – including to Thailand, where travellers rode elephants (right). “We worked as hard as we could,” Hermiston said. “I think the reason it succeeded is we were so passionate about travel and people.” Beach Travellers’ first trip came in summer 2004, when it brought six people to Thailand to experience some of the places Hermiston and Barker discovered during their own journey. Seven years later, the company is hosting 35 trips annually in Thailand, Bali, Brazil and Costa Rica – with their sights on expanding in Central America and Africa – and has had 450 travellers so far this year alone. With a head office in Edmonton, the company employs 45 staff, including guides. While Hermiston and Barker don’t go on the trips themselves, their research of future Beach Travellers destinations entails them scouting foreign locations for interesting attractions. They build relationships with the locals, Hermiston said, and choose accommodations that are locally owned and operated.

The one-of-a-kind itinerary they create – which often includes charity work, such as volunteering at an orphanage – is optional for travellers, Hermiston noted. “It has that freedom of making it their own.” Trips range from 12 to 36 days, and travellers – who are now coming from all over the world – are between the ages of 18 and 35. The journeys are meant for anyone who has “that desire to travel and get off the beaten path to discover the world, who sometimes don’t have the means or the

courage to do it,” Hermiston said, noting one of the company’s newest offerings is a Northern Thailand extension in which participants stay with hill tribes. “We do stuff that people don’t ever get to do.” But the most rewarding aspect of the project is seeing people’s lives change, just as Hermiston’s and Barker’s were after their own adventure. “We’ve seen so many people’s perspectives change and personalities bloom, and I think that’s a huge reason why everyone in the organization does this,” Hermiston said. “We get fulfillment every time we see it.”

Living ‘green’ second nature for many seniors

The senior demographic is quite possibly the best generation to emulate when trying to live an environmentally responsible lifestyle. A portion of today’s seniors grew up during the Depression, when recycling and conservation weren’t trends, but survival strategies. The behaviours of an elderly parent or grandparent that may have seemed odd at one time are now turning out to be what many people are embracing in order to live green. Concepts like relying on reusable handkerchiefs instead of disposable tissues, collecting discarded items from the curb and repairing them for renewed use, saving cans or food jars and using them to store other items and buying local products from smaller vendors are methods of living ingrained in the persona of many older people. Here are some ways of living straight out of the Great Depression that can be put to use today. • Use the milkman. Although it may seem like the milkman is extinct, milk can still be delivered straight to a person’s home from a local dairy farm. Adding reusable milk bottles reduces the reliance on disposable containers. • Pass down clothing. Clothing that

During the Depression, cars were a luxury many people could not afford – walking or taking a bus or train were some popular modes of transportation. • Use cloth linens. Reusable items, like handkerchiefs and cloth linens, are more environmentally responsible. • Use clothes lines. Clothes dryers use a large amount of energy, whereas a clothesline can help reduce electric bills and energy consumption. • Get into gardening. If you can grow what you eat, that reduces the dependence on commercially produced and harvested crops.

Vancouver Zone festival in New Westminster, to the Mainstage finals in Kamloops this July. The original cast is back, with two exceptions – Darien Edgeler takes over the role of the anarchist Ivan from Stephen Benjamin Fowler, while the play’s director, Paul Kloegman steps into the role of playwright Alexandre Dumas fils, previously played by Gerard Ponsford. To reserve tickets, call 604536-7535 or visit www.whiterock players.ca

Nunsense Vancouver-based community theatre company Fighting Chance Productions, responsible for recent critically acclaimed versions of Sweeney Todd, Forbidden Broadway, Rent and The Musical of Musicals: The Musical, is partnering with the White Rock Players Club to present Nunsense, July 6 to July 23 at Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd.

An irreverent off-Broadway hit, with book, music and lyrics by Dan Goggin, Nunsense shows what happens when five of the remaining 19 Little Sisters of Hoboken decide to put on a variety show to raise money for the burial of four lately deceased members of their order. Featured in the daffy goings-on are a tightrope-walking Mother Superior, the stardom-seeking Sister Robert Anne, the ballet obsessed Sister Mary Leo, the straight-shooting Sister Mary Hubert and the forgetful Sister Mary Amnesia (whose conscience is expressed through her puppet companion Sister Mary Annette). Director is Ryan Mooney, with musical direction by Vashti Fairbairn, both CTC and Ovation winners. The show will play Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. Tickets can be reserved by calling 604-536-7535 or visiting www.whiterockplayers.ca

White Rock wins three of six games against Premier Basebal League rivals

Tritons’ offence comes alive at end of week Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The White Rock Tritons capped a busy week on the ball diamond with an impressive 17-7 victory over the North Delta Blue Jays Sunday afternoon at South Surrey Athletic Park. The win – in which Jackson Temple had a home run and two stolen bases, and Brandon Novak drove in three runs – gave the Peninsula-based B.C. Premier Baseball League squad a Sunday split, after losing 2-0 in the first game of the double dip. The two-game split was a fitting end to

an exhausting seven-day stretch for White Rock, who went 3-3 in six games over that span. The team plays again tonight (Tuesday) at home against the Fraser Valley Chiefs. Sunday’s 17-run explosion did little to get either team’s pitchers’ earned-run averages – Nathan Trueblood went five innings for the Tritons to pick up the win, allowing seven runs in five frames – and each team was sloppy in the the field, with three errors apiece. Offensively, however, White Rock jumped on North Delta starter Jordan Callow early, scoring once in the second inning, nine

times in the third – chasing Callow from the game – and six times in the fourth inning. The Tritons finished with 15 hits – Tony Tabor, Josh Sigurdson, Novak, Sean McGuire and Talon Van Horn all had two each. The earlier game was the polar opposite of the second tilt’s offensive outburst – White Rock managed just two hits, and neither team scored until the Jays plated two in the eighth inning. Josh Larsen was tagged with the loss for the Tritons, despite pitching seven-and-a-third innings, striking out nine while allowing just one earned run.

Douglas Strohan went the distance for North Delta, striking out five through eight innings. On Saturday, at home against the Nanaimo Pirates, White Rock lost the first game 8-6 before fighting back in the second, winning 5-1. Tabor led the Tritons’ offence in the second game, going 1-for-4 with a double and two RBI, while Temple – who also had a double – Sigurdson and Spencer Dolphin also knocked in runs. Adam Shumka was on the hill for the  see page 20

White Rock sits in ninth place in PBL  from page 19 home team, and picked up his fourth win of the season to move to 4-3. Earlier last week, White Rock dropped a 2-0 decision to the Coquitlam Reds. Like Sunday’s loss to the Blue Jays, the Tritons and Reds were scoreless until extra innings, when the Reds scored a pair in the top of the eighth and the Tritons couldn’t match the output in the bottom of the frame. Larsen again pitched a gem – going eight innings, allowing

five hits while striking out nine – but like his other strong outing against the Jays, was saddled with the loss. Despite being second in the PBL with 78 strikeouts and sixth in ERA – with a 1.39 mark – Larsen has just a 5-6 won-loss record. In the Tritons’ other mid-week game last Thursday, they edged the North Shore Twins 8-7 thanks to a three-run 10th inning; the Twins answered back with just two in the bottom of the 10th, but it was not enough to earn the win.

Tabor opened the scoring in the 10th, when his single drove in Evan Douglas, and the next batter, Drew Fedyk, cashed in two more with another single. Alex Webb, pitching 4⅔ innings in relief, picked up the win for White Rock. White Rock is currently ninth in PBL standings with a 16-21 record; they’re just a half-game back of the eighth-place Abby Cardinals, who have the same number of wins but have played one less game. The Langley Blaze are in top spot with a 30-10 record.

THE TOUR DE WHITE ROCK PRESENTS:

FROM AN EXPERT BACKPACK PROVISIONS If you’re heading off for a day trip to the beach, a couple of nights away camping, a hike up one of the North Shore mountains or to watch the Tour de White Rock, it’s easy to pack some healthy, fun foods that the whole family will enjoy. During these outings, you’ll likely take part in physical activities or at least simply tax your body in the hot sun, so remember to focus on foods that nourish. First—think fluids! Be sure to pack 1 litre of water per person for a half-day activity. Camelback water carriers are great for hiking or cycling, and foldable water jugs pack up easily after camping or a day at the beach. To make the water a little more enticing, think about freezing it before your journey so it remains cool. Even add fun, refreshing flavours with cucumber, mint and citrus. Next, nosh on some nuts. The essential fatty acids are great for keeping inflammation at bay, and the fibre and protein help to keep you full and satisfied all afternoon. Make your own mix and throw in some dried fruit if you feel like it—just choose unsalted or low-salt nuts to ensure you don’t up your hydration needs.

Nicole Fetterly, BSc., RD Received her degree in Food, Nutrition and Health from UBC and has worked in a variety of settings such as clinical nutrition, private practice, including food writing and media work and now as the Nutrition Operations Manager for Choices Markets. nutrition@choicesmarkets.com

For a main meal, wraps make a handy, balanced option. Fill with healthier protein choices like an omelet, hummus, baked falafel balls or low-fat cheese like goat chevre. Once you pick your protein, load it up with veggies. Skip overly juicy veggies like tomatoes (unless you seed them first) and the wiltables, like lettuce. Instead try shredded cabbage, carrots, sprouts, sliced peppers or cucumbers. Due to food safety concerns, avoid mayonnaise and flavour with shelf-stable spreads such as mustard, miso, or tahini and healthy, flavourful oils including pumpkin, walnut, sesame or olive. Having a balanced meal of protein, low-glycemic carbohydrates and healthy fats after a workout will provide your body with what it needs to replenish its stores and repair tissue like muscle. If wraps and sandwiches are too conventional, and you don’t mind carrying a fork, consider a salad spread. Whole grain salads made from barley, quinoa, wheatberries or oat groats make hearty fare and, by using those same oils and veggies mentioned above, can withstand the heat of a summer day. Also, add a sprinkling of nuts and seeds for a crunchy protein boost. Finally, don’t forget the fruit. It not only provides a sweet treat for after your meal but also fluids to ensure you meet hydration needs. Pack plums in cloth napkins to protect from squishing but also to collect the delectable juices that will run down your chin! These summer tree fruits are around for such a short time, so enjoy them while you can. Eating at an event or after an activity doesn’t have to mean picking up fries at the concession stand or popping a protein bar. Packing a balanced selection of nibblies can ensure you give your body what it needs during a fun-filled summer day. Tour de White Rock presented by

Canada Day 10K run still on lookout for volunteers Organizers of the Peace Arch News Canada Day 10K run – which is scheduled for Friday – are still in need of volunteers to get the race get off the starting line without a hitch. “Volunteers are hugely needed,”

said Mitchell Hudson of Try Events, the company that puts on the run. There is a variety of volunteer positions left to fill, and those interested in finding out more can email the event’s volunteer

co-ordinator, Debbie, at info@ wrsscf.org or call her at 778-2921367. Hudson said participation numbers are also down from last year’s mark of 250 runners – about 180 were signed up as of late last

week – but he expects a number of last-minute registrations, especially if the weather forecast is favourable. “If we could get our numbers back to the 250 mark like last year, I’d be thrilled. Hopefully we’ll get

that many people again,” he said. In addition to getting to take part in the run, participants also get a race T-shirt; winners also receive medals. For more information, visit www.tryevents.ca

On the under-15 squad are Elgin Park Secondary’s John Carey, a midfielder; Elgin Park’s Nathan Davis, in goal; Southridge’s Alex Friesen, and Parker and Pearson Willis, both of Elgin Park Secondary. Niklas Friesen will play goal for the U13 team, and will be joined by Patrick Shoemay on defence.
