Confusion over treatment

Society tries to salvage sea fest

Terminal patient frustrated

Hannah Sutherland

A South Surrey man diagnosed with terminal cancer two weeks ago says Peace Arch Hospital staff delivered “a kick in the teeth” by refusing to treat him Friday. But Fraser Health officials insist a lengthy wait for treatment was more likely the issue that saw Stephen Price redirected to Royal Columbian Hospital. “Nobody’s ever turned away,” Joan Marshall said Tuesday. “They would never refuse to do anything... but I know it has been a very busy time for the emergency department.” Price said he attended the emergency department April 2 to have his stomach drained of fluid build-up associated with his peritoneal mesothelioma. The 54-year-old said he has had the two- to six-hour procedure done at the local ❝Since hospital twice before – as recently as Feb. 26. And when does a he will need it done every hospital refuse 10 days to two weeks for the rest of his life, which somebody?❞ he’s been told will last no Stephen Price more than six months to a year. Price said he arrived at the emergency ward at 9:45 a.m. Friday, with his abdomen swollen six to eight inches with excess fluid. After waiting two hours, his doctor said staff told him Price would have to go elsewhere. He was told staff advised his doctor “they were understaffed and too busy and they couldn’t be bothered to treat me,” he said. “Since when does a hospital refuse somebody?” Price’s physician Dr. Milan Hainc said Tuesday – through his staff at Semiahmoo Medical Clinic – that Price was turned away because the procedure he needed is not available at Peace Arch Hospital. Marshall, however, told Peace Arch News that was “not at all” the case. As well, she is not aware of any staffing issues at the hospital that day. Price said he is not the only one outraged by what happened. According to the patient, administration at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster – where nine litres of  see page A4

The Spirit of the Sea Festival will go ahead this summer, but it may not be on the same scale the community has come to know it. That’s according to the head of the Community of Lights Event Society, which is stepping up to plan the August long-weekend celebration after the City of White Rock’s call for proposals for an organizer went unanswered last fall. Matt Todd, a former city councillor, said members of the society met last week to decide whether to continue involvement with the festival, after a city report that criticized orgaMatt Todd nization of last year’s event left past organizer volunteers “feeling wounded and totally demoralized.” Mayor Catherine Ferguson said Tuesday she is optimistic planning will move ahead, and a report will come before council at its April 12 meeting. “We are absolutely working to find solutions and ensure (the festival) happens for the community and for businesses,” Ferguson said. While there was a consensus among his society’s members to participate again this year, Todd said they have to catch up on two months of planning. “The challenges that we have right now is that it’s April, and we normally would’ve been in our full-swing planning a month or two ago.” At the very least, Todd said the  see page A2

In order to add more items to the schedule of events, Todd said sponsors and volunteers need to step forward and pitch in. “How big the festival is and how close it comes to what people have come to expect totally depends on the support from the community.” Todd said last year’s budget was approximately $250,000 – about 75 per cent of which came from sponsorship – and there is currently under $15,000 allocated for this year’s festival. “There’s absolutely no way we can produce a festival with that much money outside Semiahmoo Park.” People are needed to join the production team and help in the planning process, he

said, and around 200 volunteers are required to assist during the festival. Todd said the society cannot commit to holding the festival’s two biggest draws – the Torchlight Parade and fireworks display – as they require the most work and funding. He said many of the most dramatic floats that have appeared in past Torchlight Parades are already booked for other events. “We’d have to contact them and see if there’s any way to talk them into coming back.” During a meeting with the city last week, Todd said, the society gave city staff “a very clear list of what we need” in order to run the festival, as well as an April 12 deadline “to tell us are you in or are you out.” Todd said the society will hold an open meeting April 15 at 7 p.m., once it has “a better picture of what we have available to us.” Anyone is welcome to attend, whether it is to bring ideas or gain more information, he noted.

news Three-year contract with American firm for tourism video

Wind woes

Councillors critical of U.S. deal

Winds of up to 80 kilometres an hour battered the West Coast last weekend, downing trees, delaying ferry sailings and knocking out power to thousands of residents. On the Peninsula, nearly 4,500 BC Hydro customers were without power at some point on Good Friday. Another 3,800 lost power on April 3. The two longest local outages lasted 22 and 23 hours respectively, impacting a small number of residents in the 12900-block of 24 Avenue and the 13000-block of 28 Avenue. The largest group affected – 4,027 customers in an area bounded by 140 and 176 streets, south of 34 Avenue and north of Lilac Drive – went without power for less than two hours on Friday. Another 3,421 customers were affected for about 90 minutes Saturday night, between Maple and 152 streets, north of Marine Drive and south of Crescent Road.

A contract between White Rock and an American communications company to add streaming video content to the city’s website had some at last week’s council meeting questioning why a Canadian business wasn’t used instead. White Rock resident and videographer Johan Sandstrom raised concerns during question period about New York-based CGI Communications Inc. taking on the project. “Why do we not buy Canadian? Why do we not buy local?” he said. “This sounds to be very, very jaded. Jaded in the sense that... (when) are we going to use Canadian resources to do things that have to do with the local community?” The city entered a three-year agreement last August with CGI, which is endorsed by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, according to a report.

Former premier leads province-wide tax revolt

Vander Zalm to sound HST battle cry in White Rock Former B.C. premier Bill Vander Zalm, who’s heading up a citizen’s initiative against the Harmonized Sales Tax, brings his fight to the Surrey-Cloverdale riding Friday night. He will be speaking at a Fight HST campaign and petition sign-up event at White Rock’s Star of the Sea Hall, 15262 Pacific Ave. The Fight HST petition seeks to repeal the provincial government’s plan to introduce the 12 per cent HST on a range of services – from restaurant meals to funerals – as of July 1. Vander Zalm, the colourful former premier and a past mayor of Surrey, aims to tap into a wellspring of dislike for the tax, which

will blend the federal GST with the provincial sales tax. Thousands of volunteer canvassers started knocking on doors around the province on Tuesday (April 6). Under the province’s Recall and Initiative Act, they have 90 days – until July 5, a few days after the HST is expected to become law – to collect signatures from 10 per cent of the registered voters in each of B.C.’s 85 electoral districts. In Surrey-Cloverdale, the magic number is 5,934 signatures. If successful, the provincial government would have to repeal the HST or put the issue to a future province-wide vote. Of seven initiative petitions returned since

level of anger at the proposed tax could be what makes the difference this time. Enair said the group is seeing strong support for the campaign, including through White Rock, Delta and Cloverdale, and said recent polls put opposition to the tax at “well over 70 per cent.” The next possible date for an initiative vote is Sept. 24, 2011.

Three years for cocaine SUPERMARKET A Surrey man caught at the border with 76 kilograms of cocaine was sentenced Friday to three years in a U.S. jail. According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Sukhvinder Shoker, 43, was arrested on Oct. 10 after Customs and Border Protection officers at the Pacific Highway crossing found the drugs hidden in false walls of a northbound

moving truck. The street value was estimated at $2.28 million. Shoker was charged with conspiracy to export cocaine. His sentence also included three years of supervised release. In a statement, special assistant U.S. attorney Adam Cornell described Shoker’s role in the drug conspiracy as limited. Still, he urged a significant sen-

tence, stating the conduct “had the potential to compromise the safety and security of others in his community.� In sentencing, U.S. District Judge Marsha J. Pechman noted Shoker had an otherwise lawabiding life, noting he was driven to get involved with the scheme as a result of the recession. – Tracy Holmes

He notes that Victoria, which Luxton, an expert on heritage “fiercely defends its heritage,” has preservation, gave examples of 300 homes on its register. Homseveral cities with heritage foun- eowners found that, contrary to Kevin Diakiw Black Press

popular belief, having a home on the register actually increases its value. “The big lie is ‘you’ll hurt my property values’,” Luxton told the group. “Quite the opposite.” The City of Victoria put $185,000 into its heritage foundation in 2008 alone. After hearing Luxton’s report, the committee broke into groups to discuss possibilities, then reported back. The decision was to explore a “made in Surrey” heritage foundation that would be a hybrid of direct city funding and fundraising. The group also decided to expand the definition of heritage to include not only buildings, but important green spaces and things of cultural significance. Heritage issues will permeate the work of other committees such environment, parks and agriculture, Steele said, as many of the issues raised cross over. Part of the trick will be raising awareness and excitement about heritage issues, she said. “These things get a life of their own if they’re interesting,” Steele said. “Heritage is not boring, and if we make it sound boring, that’s what it’s going to be. And it’s not.”

Liberals banking on laissez-faire response to HST


o tax is popular. And any politician who campaigns against a tax is likely to gain the public’s sympathetic ear. That’s a reality former Social Credit premier Bill Vander Zalm and current NDP leader Carol James are clearly enjoying, as they challenge the provincial Liberals on their endorsement of a Harmonized Sales Tax (although both insist there is nothing political in their opposition). It doesn’t take a brilliant political strategist to see how vulnerable the Liberals are on this topic. In the past, they’ve championed a lower Provincial Sales Tax, insisting that the lower rate would encourage spending and boost the economy. Endorsing the HST makes that a hard sell, simply because it extends taxation to other areas that previously weren’t taxed under the PST. What makes it harder still, is that the Liberals failed to mention plans to adopt the HST during last year’s election. Nobody likes a new tax, but voters despise a government that tries to sneak one past. But the Liberals are gambling on the public’s reluctance to do much more than complain. While it is something of the Canadian way to kick and scream without actually doing anything, even those critical of his long run in provincial politics should acknowledge the still-charismatic Vander Zalm – who will bring his “Fight the HST” message to Star of the Sea Hall in White Rock Friday – is at least doing something. The former Surrey mayor’s methods are far from perfect; at a forum in Chilliwack last week he curiously raised the specter of some nefarious global conspiracy last week when he suggested the HST is the first step down the slippery slope to foreign domination. “One day it will be Belgium deciding the tax rate,” he warned. “It could happen; it’s not a dream.” Regardless, he is actively fighting against something many are convinced is bad for the province and its residents. And that’s more than most are doing. They will simply bristle, then pipe down, pay up, and vote the way they usually do come next election. The Liberals are counting on it.

Sto:lo Heritage Trust. It describes how Ottawa outlawed transfer of hereditary property rights in 1884 (the potlatch law) and native fish sales in 1888. Whatever order had been imposed by Sto:lo clans over the centuries unraveled. This is not to suggest that all was calm before European contact. Far from it. Archaeologists have found rock fortifications all along the canyon, evidently used to spot and repel raiders coming upriver in canoes. A journal kept at Fort Langley from 1827 to 1830 provides a snapshot of conflict between communities. During those three years alone, the Cowichan launched four attacks on Chilliwack, and dozens of other raids were recorded from Washington state up the Fraser and the B.C. coast. Oral histories suggest some full-scale wars, but most of the attacks are believed to have been raids to seize dried salmon and slaves. Now Ottawa and B.C. need consent of only the Yale community to attempt this treaty to restore order at the most vulnerable point of the Fraser River system. The Sto:lo objections are understandable. They have the most detailed records of occupancy, trade and cultural practice of any aboriginal community in B.C. They don’t wish to go cap in hand to a splinter group for permission to fish where their ancestors have fished for thousands of years. But for the sake of the salmon, they should give this a chance to work. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press.

10 per cent solution Editor: Re: MPs will still mail to riding, March 31 letters. With all due respect to letterwriter Norma Bowen, it is not the opposition parties that are the problem here. It is the Conservative government. They are the major abusers of those Ten Percenters – mailings sent from members of Parliament to ridings other than their own. They sent out 69 per cent, compared to 13 per cent by the Liberals and 11 per cent by the NDP. Furthermore, it was a Liberal motion in the House of Commons on March 16 that called for the end of that practice. And, with the

support of all opposition parties, the motion passed. Members of the Conservative Party voted against it. If, in fact, the Board of Internal Economy is dominated by opposition MPs, then she can rest assured ridings across the country have seen the last of Ten Percenters. Unless of course, Prime Minister Stephen Harper decides otherwise. Penny Essex, Surrey Q A recent letter defended politicians’ letters to their constituent homeowners. I’m not a Conservative and loathe their politics, but in four attempts, by telephone and letter, I have been unable to stop the local man, MP Russ Hiebert, from sending me his nonsense. If local politics has anything to do with local wishes, surely the inability for this ineffectual man to remove a name from a mailing

list is all the proof we need of his absolute contempt for that concept. Jim Ison, Surrey

Owners’ equity to be protected Editor: Re: Condo repairs take toll, April 2. The remediation plans underway at Vista del Mar are the future for more White Rock stratas when Bill 8, Strata Property Act amendment, comes into effect in October 2011. The act will require all stratas to obtain a depreciation report from a qualified person estimating repair and replacement cost for major items in the strata corporation and the expected life of those items. The provincial government has passed this legislation in

response to the withdrawal of loan protections under the Homeowner Protection Office. The onus will be switched to the strata to document their deficiencies and have funds available to remediate them. The purpose of the act is to protect buyers of stratas who find themselves with a “leaky” condo due to undeclared issues at time of purchase. The act protects the consumer. Stratas can opt out of the act’s requirements with a threequarters vote at an annual or special general meeting. However, such action will logically devalue the strata to consumers. Vista del Mar is ahead of the curve and will have a fully remediated building with timed guarantees against water ingress when the legislation comes into effect. The owners’ equity will be protected.

Business in the city Editor: Re: City’s last-ditch effort fails to keep store, March 31. I think the decision by the executives of Shoppers Drug Mart to relocate to the Semiahmoo Mall area was influenced greatly by the narrow-mindedness of the White Rock city council and its attempt to keep White Rock the “village” that we all love and remember. We are losing yet another anchor tenant and our tax base will continue to erode if we do not start to move to the present century. I am sure we can find another thrift store to take up the space. Come on, White Rock. Grow up! Bill Stockdale, White Rock Q It seems the exodus has begun. With the City of White Rock declaring itself closed for business with the change in the OCP, is it any wonder Shoppers Drug Mart is leaving White Rock for Surrey? With no government liquor store, no full-sized grocery store and, now, the largest druggist leaving, what’s next? I see another big thrift store has just opened in downtown... Goody! Jacqueline Twa, White Rock Q The moving of Shoppers across the street to South Surrey is just another big glaring example of how the present White Rock council not only can’t attract taxpaying businesses, but is driving away the ones it already has – oops, had. Bill Phelps, Surrey Q Re: Bottom line, nothing new as city loses businesses, April 2. Columnist Frank Bucholtz noted White Rock has been losing businesses for quite some time. His conclusion that White Rock just doesn’t have the land and parking for large retail outlets is correct. He is also correct that White Rock is best suited for smaller businesses. However, with the cost of leasing space in the new highrise

Letter writers react to news that Shoppers Drug Mart is leaving White Rock for Semiahmoo Shopping Centre. developments in the town centre, most smaller retail businesses aren’t able to make ends meet. Bucholtz’s comment that White Rock has high taxes may be true for residential properties, but business properties in White Rock have the second lowest business tax rate in Metro Vancouver, just behind West Vancouver and slightly better than the City of Langley. In fact, businesses in Vancouver pay 140 per cent more in taxes for the same assessed property values. The mayor of White Rock suggested at one point providing tax incentives for businesses locating here, but since White Rock has one of the lowest tax rates already it would not be in the city’s best interests to do so. Cities that have used business tax incentives have found themselves with deep deficits due to the current recession. Business taxes make up less than 10 per cent of White Rock’s tax base, so perhaps Bucholtz’s comment that the city’s future is only in residential development may also be correct. It doesn’t need to be that way. While sitting on the economic committee, I proposed a new zone that would allow a combination of residential, retail on the ground floor and offices on second floor, not only for the town centre but for properties along the waterfront. White Rock does have the capacity for more office space, and with competent aggressive marketing,

the city should be able to attract smaller office-oriented businesses looking to reduce their overhead and – more than that – locating to a place that is one of the most physically attractive in the region. Fresh air, more sunlight, lack of traffic congestion and an easier commute to work are all attributes this city needs to brag about. Rather than the city sinking into the doldrums, it needs to seize the day and do it with vigour. Phil Le Good, White Rock Q I am struck by the contrast in tone of two articles April 2, that refer to the same topic – businesses leaving White Rock. On the one hand, Frank Bucholtz’s column gives some historical perspective and basically tells it like it is –White Rock is residential, with some shopping uptown and seasonal attraction to the beach, and there is nothing the city can do about big business moving out. Bucholtz seems more in touch with the realities of our town than the mayor, whose comments appear in the news article on the next page (Mayor fears more will go). How nice it would be if Mayor Catherine Ferguson would tell us how she plans to work with other members of council to “provide services to our local residents.” All we seem to hear from her is the constant mantra that “development” is the solution to her woes, when in fact, it was highrise, high-density

development that forced the liquor store and several other key businesses to leave town. Bucholtz says “none of these changes will detract from the city’s considerable charm.” What would surely do that are the taller, denser, highrises the mayor is so fond of. Thankfully, CPR candidates have lived up to their election promise and have lowered the height and density in our town centre, more in keeping with our charming town. Jean Kromm, White Rock Q Re: Restaurant owners calls for seven-day valet service, April 2. I see no harm in upper White Rock being – as I think it always has been – “simply a neighbourhood shopping area,” as columnist Frank Bucholz described it. And I agree the beach area is different, attracting people from all over. But many who come don’t come back as often as they’d like to, not because of the pay parking but because there isn’t enough parking. Try to find a parking spot anytime after 6 p.m. on a Friday or Saturday – not likely. If the city wants us to come to the beach more often, and wants to ensure beach-area businesses can contribute as much as possible to the city, it should not only subsidize a valet bus service along Marine Drive, it should build more parking. Please, White Rock, build a few multi-storey parking garages! Geoff Dean, Surrey

Thanks to you, helping our environment is “in the bag” Dear Valued Customer, On Earth Day last year, Thrifty Foods announced it would stop using plastic grocery bags as of July, 2009. We did it for all the right reasons but we knew it would take the patience and understanding of our customers to make it work. Since then, and thanks to your help, Thrifty Foods has stopped over 18 million plastic bags from cluttering up our landfills, damaging our environment, and harming our wildlife. Just as importantly, by remembering to bring your own reusable bags into our stores, you’ve also helped us reduce the amount of single-use bags by 75% over the past year. It’s amazing what a little patience and understanding can do. Whether you prefer our standard cloth bags, or the highly-convenient purse/pocket-sized foldable pouch bags, we hope you’ll join our quest to become “bag-neutral” by bringing reusable bags every time you shop at Thrifty Foods. Look for great special offers and our in-store challenge to keep things rolling! Thank you for your thoughtfulness, your concern and your commitment to helping make our environment a better place for all of us. Your Thrifty Foods Store Manager

Crisis calls increase Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The ringing phone in the middle of the night meant only one thing: another woman in this area had been victimized, most likely sexually assaulted and in need of care. Organizers at Surrey Women’s Centre knew calls for help would be on the rise because of the Olympics. In fact, crisis line calls for service were four times what they were in February and March last year. This February, VictimLINK received 24 calls for accompaniment to hospital, 18 of which required medical assistance for sex assault. Others were a mix of domestic violence and some refusals for service. Similar numbers were expected for March. Of the calls for hospital care, six of them were youth between 13 and 17 years old. The areas covered by the service include Surrey, New Westminster, Burnaby Coquitlam, Port Coquiltlam, Maple Ridge and Port Moody. “There’s very little that ties it directly

to the Olympics, other than what we saw predominantly was drugfacilitated sexual assaults involving alcohol,” said Corrine Arthur, special projects co-ordinator for SWC. “So the conclusion we can draw is that the party atmosphere of the Olympics going on may have contributed to sexual assaults.” It lines up with what the Vancouver Police Department is reporting, which is a 70 per cent increase in sex assaults, Arthur said. “Though the numbers were high, we actually expected even higher than this, so we’re a little concerned we might see some overflow into April,” Arthur said. “So we’re going to continue the police and hospital accompaniments in April.” In addition to the increase in calls assistance accompanying victims to hospital or police, the crisis line also received five “bad date” reports. (A bad date is a violent client of a prostitute.) Anyone needing assistance can call the SWC crisis line at 604-583-1295.

Survivor says it with flowers Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter


y wearing yellow daffodil pins on Daffodil Day April 9, the public will be showing support for cancer survivors like Joan Paddick, who is still living with the disease after being diagnosed more than 20 years ago. The White Rock resident was 53 with no family history of cancer when she found a lump in her breast in 1989. Within two weeks, she underwent a mastectomy. Although the tumour was small, Joan, a former registered nurse, said the cancer was aggressive, and had already spread to her lymph nodes. She had a 40 per cent chance of living five more years. Looking back now, Joan is grateful to have spent nearly the next two decades seemingly cancer-free, as she helped her family members through their own adversities. The first hardship came quickly, just three weeks after her surgery, when her only brother died. Worried about her mother dealing with the loss of her son as well as the illness of her daughter, Joan was determined to survive, undergoing chemotherapy for almost nine months. While dealing with the effects of cancer was difficult at times, she eventually came to terms with it. “You get acceptance, and life goes on.” During that time, Joan’s husband, Bob, showed signs of dementia, and his two brothers died within three weeks of each other. As Bob’s condition deteriorated and her mother became unwell, Joan thought it best she and Bob move to her hometown, in a rural area of Ontario. The day their house sold, their only child, Lynn, died of septicemia, brought on by an infection that was unresponsive to even the most advanced antibiotics. She was 39 years old. Bob’s illness continued to worsen, and he succumbed to

The tickets are completely sold out, the lineup of entertainment is in place and the 2010 White Rock Nite of Hope is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet. With the strong support of the community, co-chairs Debi Rumley and Lori Ishikawa are hoping the gala event at Centennial Arena Thursday, April 8 will raise $100,000, bringing the grand total over the past five years to more than half a million dollars. The theme of this year’s event – which includes live and silent auctions, surprise local entertainers and a fashion show – is Time for Hope, a concept Rumley said couldn’t be more appropriate. “It’s time for a cure,” she said. “It’s time to get serious about it.” The message of urgency in Nite of Hope’s theme corresponds with an initiative launched by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, which sets an end date for the threat of the disease. “We want to see a future without the fear of breast cancer by the year 2020,” said Elaine Webb, CBCF’s director of health promotion and planning. “If a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer after 2020, we expect to hear her say ‘Oh thank goodness, it’s only breast cancer.’” To reach that goal, the CBCF has formed a task force focusing on five areas in the fight against breast cancer – prevention, early detection, research, health care work force issues and treatment.

His fellowship – funded by the money raised at last year’s White Rock Nite of Hope – involves researching a tool called an Oncotype DX, a test that can determine which patients diagnosed with breast cancer should undergo chemotherapy once the tumour has been removed. “This test is designed to identify, by testing the tumour itself, which patients will benefit from chemotherapy, so others can be spared the troublesome side effects,” Davidson explained. The Oncotype DX was created in the U.S., and currently is not funded for patients in Canada. Through his current research, which started about four months ago, Davidson is trying to determine whether or not the test is something that should be offered

“We’re trying to see if the test is actually useful,” he said. “Is it cheaper in the long run, sparing women chemotherapy treatments they may not require?” For Rumley, an eight-year breast cancer survivor, seeing the hard work that goes into an event like Nite of Hope pay off with Davidson’s research is a huge accomplishment. “It’s important for people to know that 100 per cent of our money hits research,” she said. “The Nite of Hope is the first organization in Canada where the money has been directly

designated to a fellowship.” Rumley is quick to point out that it wouldn’t be possible without the “amazing” support of the White Rock/South Surrey community, including the hundreds of volunteers and sponsors involved in the event. “It’s the fact that people are not afraid to step up and give. This is an extremely giving community,” she said. “So many of these people are not looking to be recognized, they just want to help. That’s what is special about this community.”

George and Sylvia Kenny celebrate 50 years of marriage this week. throughout the ’60s and ’70s. “There were 30 or 40 farms in the area,” said Sylvia, whose husband is a former president of the B.C. Mink Breeders Association. The couple “pelted out” and ended their business after 32 years in 1992. The Kennys’ other claim to fame

in the South Surrey community was having the first twins born at Peace Arch Hospital. They also have three other daughters and 11 grandchildren. A small celebration is being planned at a local restaurant to celebrate the Kennys’ milestone anniversary.

Longtime South Surrey residents and onetime mink farm owners George and Sylvia Kenny are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary Thursday. They were married on April 8, 1960 at Crescent United Church, and celebrated afterwards with 120 friends and family at Elgin Hall. Their wedding was fairly traditional, said Sylvia, who remembers every detail of her dress. “There was netting overtop of it (the dress), as well as in the sleeves and in the skirt,” she recalled. George and Sylvia honeymooned on Vancouver Island before returning to South Surrey to start their new life together five decades ago. The newly christened Kennys quickly became known in the community for their unique business. “We owned a mink farm,” said Sylvia. The Kenny Fur Farm, located at 144 Street and 32 Avenue, was hard to miss – especially in the spring when the baby mink were born. “The most we had at one time was 7,000,” said Sylvia, explaining how mink farms were a big industry in the Fraser Valley

Army cadets victorious Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Peninsula army cadets have set their sights on a national marksmanship title, after claiming victory at the provincial competition last month. Josh Adrian, Ellan Kim, Michelle Chen, Noah Brown and Alan Lee – all members of the 907 Air Cadet Squadron coached by Vern Brown – took the top team spot in the Provincial Cadet Marksmanship Championship, held March 27 in Vernon. “It was great, we all shot to our potentials,” Chen, a Grade 12 Semiahmoo Secondary student, said

Contributed photo

Five army cadets were first at provincials. Wednesday. The five were among 75 air, army and navy cadets to compete. Each was challenged to fire at a sheet of 10 targets four times over the course of the event, for a score out of 400. The scores of each team’s top four shooters counted towards the overall team score. Though confident

they would fare well, Chen, who qualified for the national event last year, said there was a moment when victory was uncertain. “We were neck-andneck with another team. At one point, we were one point behind,” she said. “We ended up winning by four points, which was really, really slim for shooting.”

Taking second place out of 12 teams competing was Victoria’s 2483 PPCLI Army Cadet Corps. As the victors, the 907 Squadron will compete at the national championships, set for May 8-18 in Edmonton. The unit’s commanding officer Capt. Katrina Vince said she is “very proud” of the team. Vince noted marksmanship is an extra activity offered to the air cadets, who gain “all-round experience for life” by participating in the cadet program. She named leadership, confidence and work ethic as skills gained. “It just opens the doors,” Vince said.

“Our scenery will keep you on course”

16900 4th Ave., South Surrey


Winter is officially over, and for golf lovers on the Peninsula, that means it’s time to hit the course. But before you dive in to a full 18-holes, it’s a good idea to ease back into all the swinging, bending and walking to prevent any injuries that may occur after a long winter away from the game. Dr. Sereena Uppal of Peninsula Village Chiropractic and Laser recommends anyone returning to golf after a few months off should do a number of stretches and strengthening exercises beforehand. The following are stretches recommended by Dr. Uppal: •Side bending works the muscles on the sides of your back and hips •Hip rotation stretches several muscles in your hip, pelvis and thigh region •The hamstring stretch works the large muscles at the back of your thighs •Back extension helps the muscles that bend your spine backward, while back rotation stretches the muscles that rotate your spine and shoulders

Metro creative photo

Taking precautions can prevent injury on the golf course. •The shoulder stretch works shoulders and upper arms. Once you’ve had a good stretch, Uppal recommends musclestrengthening exercises that can help make your body stronger and more flexible. Wrist strength is essential to a good golf game, as is strength in rotating the upper arms in either direction. To improve form and strength of your golf swing, practise good posture by concentrating on using your abdominal

and back muscles. Once you’re ready for a round of golf, you should still be cautious to prevent injuries. When lifting your clubs, be sure to bend your knees, slightly curve your spine and lift gently. Warm up before your first swing and be sure to stretch. Use the support of your golf club when stooping for a ball or preparing to tee off, and be sure to keep correct posture when driving and putting. Don’t forget to cool down and stretch again after your game.

VICTORIA – Opening-day provincial campground reservations were up 35 per cent over last year after the B.C. government launched a new reservation system April 1.

Mounties apologize in Taser case what’s Martin van den Hemel Black Press

As a light drizzle fell outside, and on the eve of Easter with its spirit of rebirth, RCMP Deputy Commissioner Gary Bass apologized to the mother of airport tasering victim Robert Dziekanski Thursday morning and announced that the Mounties have reached a financial settlement in the civil lawsuit. Details of the financial settlement will not be made public, out of respect for the privacy of Dziekanski’s mother Zofia Cisowski, according to her lawyer Walter Kosteckyj. Kosteckyj noted that Easter holds special significance to his client, and hopes the apology and settlement will bring closure to this chapter of her life and the beginning of something new. At a press conference at YVR’s South Terminal, Bass said nobody involved in this incident wanted this tragic outcome. “The purpose of my apology today is to acknowledge that generally speaking, the RCMP could have done things better and we want to do things better and we’ve learned from this situation and will continue to,” he said. “Ms. Cisowski, on behalf of the RCMP, I want to apologize for our role in the tragic death of your son Robert Dziekanski at the Vancouver International Airport on Oct. 14, 2007. Your son arrived from Poland eager to begin a new life here in Canada. We are deeply sorry he did not have that opportunity,” Bass said. “The RCMP has learned much from this tragic incident. And since it happened, numerous changes

have been made to strengthen our policies, practices, training and reporting requirements in relation to the use of conducted energy weapons, which are commonly known as Tasers.” Cisowski said she accepted the apology, and noted that she’d also received a letter of apology from B.C. Solicitor General Kash Heed, and Canada  see page A26

The funny yet touching play takes place in the English countryside where Felix Humble (Nathan Whims) an astrophysicist, has come home for the funeral of his beekeeping father to find that all is not as it seems. Felix is stuck dealing with his beautiful but overbearing mother, an old girlfriend and a serious case of stage fright when it comes to his father’s eulogy. “This is a poignant play that is filled with laughter, passion and some down-right sad bits,” awardwinning director Paul Kloegman said in a release. “It’s a modernday Hamlet.” The production features Deborah Spitz (Flora Humble); Mike Busswood (George Pye); Susan Cox (Mercy Lott); Dick Pugh (Jim); and Carmen Sicotte (Rosie Pye). The show runs until April 24 at Coast Capital Playhouse, Wednesday to Saturday, with a 2:30 p.m. matinee April 18. Tickets are $16; $14 for students and seniors.

The book launch is open to the public, and will be followed by a free storytelling workshop from 2:30 to 4 p.m. for children aged six to 12.

Metro garbage plan to allow menu of options Jeff Nagel Black Press

Metro Vancouver is advancing with a multi-pronged draft solid waste plan that gives lots of flexibility but won’t immediately answer the burning question: whether new incinerators will be built to turn garbage into energy. The decision came after a March 23 meeting with Environment Minister Barry Penner, which Metro directors say shed little light on what Victoria might ultimately approve. Waste management committee chair Greg Moore, mayor of Port Coquitlam, now says there was no way Penner could explicitly signal his preference. “He’s not able to give us that indication,” he said. “Nor were we expecting that we would have such a direct conversation.” Instead, Moore said it was a chance for Metro to inform Penner of the region’s plan. He concedes the document – expected to be get tentative approval by the Metro board April 9 – won’t give certainty to critics in the Fraser Valley. “The plan gives us flexibility to look at many different options,” Moore said. “It doesn’t lock us into one mass burn facility. “If we bought into one technology for the next 20 years, we’d be selling ourselves and our residents short of all the opportunities that are out there.” Metro has tentatively scheduled public meetings on the plan starting April 22 in Hope, April 28 in Abbotsford and April 29 in Chilliwack, followed by further meetings in the rest of Metro Vancouver through May. The aim is to submit a final plan to the province by July. Even if it were quickly approved by the government, it could still be months or years before Metro decides exactly what gets built. The document sets in-region waste-toenergy as the preferred option, with the ability to build new incinerators that could burn up to 500,000 tonnes of waste per year. That’s about the same amount as now goes to the Cache Creek

landfill, which Metro intends to stop using when it’s full by late 2011. A local incinerator is preferred – despite

fears in the Fraser Valley for air quality – because heat and not just electricity could be captured and piped to nearby buildings,

generating more revenue. The backup plan is to barge waste to an out-of-region incinerator, likely one proposed at Gold River

on Vancouver Island. The third choice is to landfill waste – presumably at the existing Cache Creek landfill, where a huge

expansion is proposed. Moore said any incinerators built would have to go through an environmental assessment process.

But he said the plan would also allow for other waste-to-energy technologies, including a number of projects on a much smaller scale.

news She said fears of vaccine side effects or other objections to immunization give such viruses more room to spread. The standard two doses of measles vaccine – usually given at one year and 18 months of age – is 99 per cent effective in blocking the contagious disease.

Measles lands A measles outbreak in the Lower Mainland has health authorities on alert. Ten lab-confirmed and four suspected cases of the disease were identified in March. Several of those infected are in a single Burnaby household where parents refused to immunize their children due to philosophical objections. Officials at the B.C. Centre for Disease Control suspect the highly contagious virus was brought here during the Olympics by at least two outof-province visitors, because two separate strains have been identified. The illness causes fever, runny nose and a cough. A rash develops later, often accompanied by sore, red eyes and light sensitivity. It may also cause ear infections, pneumonia and, in rare cases, encephalitis, deafness, brain damage or death. Dr. Monika Naus said the recent spate of cases shows that an outbreak of such vaccine-preventable diseases is “still only an airplane ride away” due to global travel.

New directors A businessman with close ties to Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts is one of two new directors on the Fraser Health Authority Board. Chris Gardner ran Watts’ election campaign and then was named to a $150,000-a-year job at Surrey city hall that he recently left to return to a position with the Britco Group, which makes modular buildings. Also named to the Fraser Health board is Inde Sumal, RBC’s vicepresident of residential mortgages. The former Surrey Board of Trade president also sits on the National Diversity Leadership Council, SFU’s Community Advisory Board and the Surrey Mayor’s Advisory Board on Investment and Job Creation.

Hansen for GG Man in Motion Rick Hansen is a strong contender to replace popular Governor General Michaëlle Jean as the Queen’s representative in Canada. An Angus Reid poll found 69 per cent of B.C. residents back the paraplegic athlete and activist for Governor General, versus 50 per cent nationally. Former defence staff chief John de Chastelain got 36 per

cent national support in the poll, while 31 per cent said Inuit leader Mary Simon would be a good choice. Jean has strong support in B.C., with 65 per cent here approving of her vice-regal performance. Fifty-one per cent of those polled in B.C. support extending her term another two years, while 36 per cent were opposed. Canadians in general are more evenly split on extending Jean’s term, while Quebeckers are most hostile to the idea and more likely to disapprove of her performance. – Jeff Nagel

A mid-season turnaround helped the team finish with a 5-7-6 record, but they ran the table in the post-season, knocking off first-place Athletic Club BC and fifth-place Abbotsford before

defeating higher-ranked PoCo Saturday. “It was a season of ups and downs, for sure, and we had to beat three of the league’s top five teams to get to this point, so it’s just been amazing... an amazing season,” said Lenzi, who has played on three of Peace Arch’s Pakenham championship teams. The team, which has lost just once since the Christmas break, surprised even Hleucka, who admitted Monday to having a few

doubts about his team earlier in the year. “At Christmastime, I didn’t really think we had it in us, to be completely honest, but after the break, we just got all the guys drinking the same Kool-Aid, and it came together at the right time,” he said. “The guys showed a lot of character.” Before taking the field Saturday, Lenzi – who missed the first half  see page A33

Seaside U17 girls team crowned Best of West Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Losing the first game of a tournament can be demoralizing for some teams, but for Seaside Volleyball’s U17 girls club, it only seemed to motivate them. After losing their opening game Saturday at Calgary’s Best of the West tournament, the Peninsula U17 side reeled off six wins in a row, including three straight – all one after another with no time to rest – Saturday, to win the tournament. On Saturday, after a first-game loss to the host Calgary Dinos,

Seaside defeated Winnipeg’s Cobra Volleyball Club; Jeff ’s Crestwear Volleyball Club from Saskatoon; and Griffins Volleyball from Edmonton. The next day, Seaside continued its run with victories over Saskatchewan-based Tupper Volleyball Club and the Manitoba Bisons, before defeating Element Volleyball Club – from Swift Current, Alta. – in the championship game. “We didn’t play particularly well – certainly not our best – but then again, a coach is never quite satisfied,” Seaside coach Mark

United qualifies for Provincial Cup

Cassell said Monday, a day after returning from Alberta. “But the win was good for our confidence.” The invite-only tournament featured nine of the best U17 girls volleyball teams from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Seaside was the lone B.C. entry. “Having two games in a row is pretty common, but to have three was a little unusual,” said Cassell. “But we battled through it and played well, and we had a break before the final game (on Sunday), so that helped.”

Making the tournament even tougher for Seaside’s U17 girls was the fact that, as defending U16 provincial and national champions, it didn’t take much for opposing clubs to get geared up to face them. “We’re the big target this year, for sure,” Cassell said. “Everybody is always gunning for us.” Cassell was quick to praise Seaside’s libero Brooke Gallagher, who was integral to the team’s defence, as well as Katie Klomps. “Brooke didn’t do a whole lot of hitting, but she played excellent

defence... they both had excellent tournaments,” Cassell said. With the season about half over, the team doesn’t get much chance to revel in the Sunday’s victory. This weekend, Seaside competes in the Super Series, held at Abbotsford’s Columbia Bible College, and after one week off, hits the court again for a tournament in Langley, followed by provincials and nationals. “We aren’t quite where we’d like to be, we’re working through some things,” Cassell said. “The next six weeks are pretty big for us.”

 from page A31 of the year with an ankle injury – said the veteran players made sure to emphasize to the team the magnitude of the match. “The average age of our team is about 31, so it might be over for some of us,” he said. “Before the game, we came together and made sure everybody realized that. Myself, I’m almost 30 and I’m coming off an injury. I never thought I’d be able to get back to a Pakenham final, and score a goal... I thought maybe it was over for me.” In addition to giving PAU another Pakenham title, the game was important because it gave the Peninsula side a berth in the provincial cup tournament, which begins this weekend. Coincidently, Peace Arch will face the Port Coquitlam Rangers – who had already qualified – in the first round. “There’s a little animosity between us now, so it should be a good game,” Hleucka said. “They’re a good team, but we have a lot of confidence now. We’re feelin’ it.”

Championship games Three other Fraser Valley Soccer League championship games were also played Saturday at South Surrey Athletic Park. In the U21 final, the Port Moody Gunners defeated the Golden Ears Strikers 5-2; in the Div. 1 President’s Cup title game, the Fraser Valley Red Devils knocked off Guildford United 4-1; and in the Masters final, Port Coquitlam Castillians FC shut out Mission FC 3-0.

2010 Volkswagen Golf Wagon Story and photos by Rob Beintema Metroland Newspapers Carguide Magazine Ah, station wagons. They originated as ‘depot hacks’ to carry passengers and luggage from train station to hotel. Then they evolved into Boomer family haulers and cross-country tourers before gradually degenerating into bloated and vinyl-clad irrelevance, battered by energy crises and compact car revolutions before being supposedly killed off by the advent of the minivan. But it seems that rumours of their death have been somewhat exaggerated. Station wagons are back, an evolutionary rebound from SUV excess, regaining their original popularity with a modern mix of utilitarian practicality, contemporary style and perky performance. Take the 2010 Golf Wagon for example. “This new Wagon adds an important dimension to our Golf line-up in Canada,” said John White, President and CEO of Volkswagen Group Canada. “The Golf has always been an affordable choice. For new families looking for a larger and economical alternative, we even lowered the price by $800 with the new 2010 Golf Wagon.” With a starting price of $22,675, the Golf Wagon is a cheaper entry into German-engineered utility than most Euro-SUVs or crossovers. And yet it offers acceptable, compact-style family seating and loads of cargo-carrying ability, a natural fit for multi-purpose business needs, weekend getaway gear haulage, or for families with pets. The Golf Wagon is the biggest Golf ever with 930 litres of luggage space behind the rear seats, expanding to an impressive 1890 litres with the 60/40 second row folded flat. That’s roomier than the cargo rating of VW’s Tiguan compact SUV. It rivals the larger Touareg’s numbers and even surpasses the maximum luggage space of the bigger Passat Wagon! From the driver’s seat, it’s easy to forget about cargo space as you look around a premium passenger cabin that is elegantly symmetrical with evident quality in content and construction. Simple, round red-needled gauges are brilliantly lit in white. Dark textures are set off by brushed chrome accents. A new three-spoke steering wheel takes inspiration from the Passat CC, and the bolstered seats are firm and comfortable. Outside, this sixth generation Golf Wagon pays tribute to the first generation Golf with a radiator grille horizontally aligned between the headlights. For a wagon, it’s unexpectedly sleek. It’s low-slung, sporty lines and very “un-wagonish” persona surprised me every time that I walked up to it. The 2010 VW Golf Wagon comes in varying trim levels with a choice of two engine versions - gasoline or TDI Clean Diesel. The lineup starts with a 2.5-litre 170 hp 20-valve

five-cylinder gasoline engine. This civilized and able powerplant earns a respectable 9.3/6.9L/100km (city/ hwy). It comes standard with a five-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic. My real world combined results with the slightly more frugal automatic averaged out to 10.1L/100km. This gasoline-powered variant starts with the base Trendline model, moving upscale to a Comfortline trim level. As a second choice, the 2010 Golf TDI harnesses a 2.0-litre 140 hp 16-valve four-cylinder Clean Diesel engine. Don’t let the drop in horsepower fool you. Like most diesels, the TDI makes up for it with substantially more oomph, pulling like a train with 236 lb/ ft of low-end torque surging anywhere between 1750-2500 rpm. This is the fuel miser of the lineup, officially rated at 6.7/4.6L/100km (city/hwy). Stick to the speed limit on a long highway run and you might actually reach VW’s boasted range of 1190 km on a single tank. My more realistic combined averages, as usual, worked out closer to the city rating, returning me 6.5L/100km. That was with the dual-clutch DSG six-speed automatic transmission, also slightly thriftier than the six-speed manual that comes standard with the diesel. The 2010 Golf TDI model starts at the mid-range Comfortline trim level, topping out with a leather-clad Highline version. I drove both powertrain versions and they are equally capable. They share a few VeeDub idiosyncrasies – brakes that squeal in the cold for the first kilometer or so, and a gas pedal that requires enthusiastic application. But there are no burning negatives to be found here. You might expect cheerleading support for the cleanerburning, more fuel-efficient TDI model but the choice depends on the individual, their preferences, their driving habits and the way the number crunch for each driver’s particular situation. Based on my personal driving parameters, I figure it would take me about three years of fuel cost savings to counter the $2,800 premium for the diesel engine. Do your own math but here are a few other factors to keep in mind, as well. Diesel prices can float ten cents below or above regular gas prices. Then there’s the convenience factor. Diesel is less widely available and service centres that do have it often have only one pump island dedicated to providing it. And, at the risk of sounding sexist, women drivers in your family will not be impressed by diesel’s oilier smell and tactile viscosity or by the dirtier pump islands that it is usually dispensed from. On the plus side, however, energy-conscious consumers will derive a certain satisfaction from the reduced fuel usage and emissions of this new Clean Diesel process. And the TDI’s compatibility with B5 Bio-Diesel fuel can reduce its carbon footprint even further. There’s no wrong choice to be made here. Regardless of personal preferences, trim selections or even powertrain

Completing an award-winning sixth-generation Golf lineup that includes three-door, five-door, hotrod GTI variants, the 2010 Volkswagen Golf Wagon, the biggest Golf ever, adds family-hauling, cargo-carrying ability to a stylish and sophisticated package. The VW Golf Wagon interior, pictured here in a leather-clad Highline trim level, is laid out with elegant symmetry, its dark textures highlighted brushed chrome accents and brilliant white gauge illumination. choices, the 2010 Volkswagen Golf Wagon blends quality and content in a package that is elegantly stylish and eminently practical. Long live the station wagon.

How to write a classified ad that works

I have been a consistent advertiser with the Peace Arch News since opening my Canadian Tire store in 2000. Over those 10 years, I have participated in many advertising features and they have always helped drive business to my store.

Writing an effective classified ad is easy when you know how. What follows is a step-by-step guide focusing on the time-tested principles of a successful ad.

I usually give my sales rep a very limited idea of what I want in my ads and it is amazing how the finished product is consistently professional and creative.

1. Use a KEYWORD. Start your ad with the item for sale, the service offered or the job title. 2. Be DESCRIPTIVE. Give customers a reason to respond. Advertisers have found that the more information you provide, the better the response. 3. LIMIT abbreviations. Use only standard abbreviations to avoid confusion & misinterpretations. 4. INCLUDE PRICE. Always include the price of the item for sale/rent. 5. GET ATTENTION! Use enhancements, such as LARGE TYPE, white space, borders, graphics, etc. to bring attention to your ad. 6. How to RESPOND. Always include a phone number (with area code) and/or area. For more information & assistance please contact one of our professional classified sales representatives 604-575-5555

This well-read community newspaper produces value for my advertising dollars. The Peace Arch News is my primary advertising vehicle and I am more than satisfied with results! As a locally owned business our mandate is to give back to the community we live and work in. I have always found the Peace Arch News has been by our side, supporting our efforts to help make our community such a wonderful place to be. I look forward to a long and successful working relationship with the Peace Arch News, “ the voice of the Semiahmoo Peninsula”.

Grow your best garden yet with the right preparations


t’s that time of year when the days get longer, the winter coats are put away and green thumbs rejoice in the wake of another season of gardening. But before you dive into the yard planting flowers, plants and veggies, a lot of preparation work needs to be done in order to ensure a successful summer in the garden. According to Chris Pershick of Potter’s Nursery, spring is a great time to plant trees, shrubs and perennials, and evidence of this can be seen with the number of beautiful plants flowering the past few weeks. “Just on my way to work this morning, I saw camellias, rhodos, skimmia, heather, flowering cherries, forsythia and many other shrubs and perennials all in full bloom,” Chris says. When it comes to planting new plants, Chris recommends you use liberal amounts of bone meal to ensure the plants get started with a solid root system. “Using a transplanter fluid or root-booster liquid will also help in the transplant process,” he

‘Turbo charge’ soil with compost  from page B2 charge” the soil in your garden, as it will add lots of microbial activity. “When you have lots of microbes, they’ll be digesting and gobbling up the little bits of root and wood and leaf mulch that aren’t fully decomposed and turn it into something the plant can absorb into its roots,” Lonnie explains. One source of confusion in the garden that Lonnie encounters every year is the difference between annuals and perennials, and which plant makes a better choice for planting. While perennials come back year after year, they only bloom for a month or two, whereas annuals continue to bloom throughout the whole summer, but die in the winter. “Annuals are cheaper than perennials, and they grow faster and bloom longer,” Lonnie says. “And perennials come back every year bigger and better than the year before – so there is an application for both.” Just because some perennials may be blooming already, doesn’t mean it’s time for the annuals to go in, however. “You have to plant the annuals when the danger of frost is over – that usually happens about half-way through April,” Lonnie says. Not to be forgotten this time of year is the lawn. Before you’re able to lounge in the sun on a beautiful green bed of grass, your lawn will need some TLC after the damage caused by a winter of bad weather. “It was a very mild winter, so the moss grew like crazy in everybody’s yards,” Lonnie says. “Our rainy weather alters the ph-value in the soil, so that moss thrives and grass doesn’t. You have to put lime down every year to undo what the

There are a few different options available when it comes to moss killers, depending on the size of the lawn you’re working with. One type comes as a concentrated liquid, which can attach to a garden hose and sprayed over the entire lawn.  see page B5

pring has officially sprung and it’s time to put on a pair of gloves and hit the garden for another season. While a garden can provide limitless enjoyment and beauty, creating and maintaining the perfect oasis in your yard is also a lot of work. That’s where White Rock’s Susan Wheeler can lend a much-needed helping hand. As a garden coach, Wheeler aids her clients with everything from planning and design, when and what to prune and techniques to improve their green thumbs. With years of garden design experience under her belt, Wheeler is very familiar with which plants do well in all sorts of situations and can help establish a complete plan for her clients’ gardens. “A really big problem is not having an overall vision,” she said. “That’s something I can definitely help with.” Knowing where to put different plants and flowers is another important aspect Wheeler takes into consideration when planning a garden, as well as making sure the area has proper drainage.

Time to undo winter lawn damage  from page B3 Another is the granular moss killer, which comes in a bag and is spread out over the lawn – the most effective, according to Lonnie. “Then there’s the one that’s a moss killer and lawn fertilizer put together, which is more expensive, but it kills two birds with one stone,” Lonnie says. Fertilizing your lawn in the spring is an important step to ensure a thriving, green patch of grass. If you choose to fertilize separately from the moss-killing step, Chris recommends a highnitrogen fertilizer which will give your grass blades a boost.

“You’ll find you have to mow the lawn more frequently, but I’m betting you’ll be happy with the lovely, lush green colour,” Chris says. Another lawn treatment to be considered is aerating, which is a great way to improve drainage, reduce compaction and help ensure moss doesn’t come back, according to Chris. “Aerators can be rented for a reasonable price, and aerating makes a huge difference when considering the overall health of your lawn,” he says. If you have bare patches in your lawn to be filled in once the moss has been removed, Chris

recommends getting a nice quality turf soil and sprinkling it in the patches, which makes it easier to seed those areas. “When choosing lawn seeds, keep in mind what kind of area it is and how you’re going to use the lawn,” Chris advises, adding that things like traffic, sun and shade should be taken into account. “These are all factors to consider when choosing a lawn seed.” Whether you have a small backyard or acres of space to work with, ensuring you take the right first steps this time of year can mean the world of difference to the health of your lawn and garden.

hile spring is traditionally the time of year homeowners attempt to clean and declutter, it’s also a great time to spruce up a few rooms with some bright new decor. Whether it’s a fresh coat of paint, some new furniture or a stylish piece of artwork, the right touch of decoration can make your home seem new. And there is no shortage of exciting decor trends this spring, including the resurgance of an old favourite when it comes to wall adornment. While grey, earthy tones remain popular choices when it comes to paint colours, Julie Clarke at Hillcrest Decorating says that a number of homeowners are choosing to add splashes of colour to a single wall or occasional room for a little excitement. “We play it safe in the rest of our rooms, but in a powder room, we can add a little more drama because it’s an occasional space,” she explains. Colours that Julie calls “psuedo-neutrals,” which are scaled back versions such as greyblue and grey-green, are also a good choice, as they’re not as much of a commitment as a bold

Kitchen renovations that have an impact on the entire home

Wednesday, April 7, 2010 Peace Arch News



fter a tumultuous couple of years, things are looking up in the real estate industry, as homes in the Fraser Valley are starting to sell quickly after being put on the market. If you’ve been thinking about putting your home on the market, but want to make sure you get the best price possible, updating your kitchen is a great way to improve the salability of your home. Improvements can range from small-scale to a complete kitchen overhaul, according to Leanne at Rona Home Centre. “Changing all the knobs on the cupboards and drawers, that’s something that a lot of people can do themselves,” Leanne suggests, adding that a new faucet could also make a big impact. Swapping out old fluorescent lighting for decorative pot lighting can also make a huge difference in the kitchen, Leanne says. If the thought of tackling kitchen renovations on your own is a little overwhelming, consider finding some professional help.

A great room starts with great planning.

A spruced up kitchen can improve the value of a home. Phil Cervi and his crew at Armadio Kitchen and Bath can help revamp your kitchen with a range of improvements big and small. Installing granite countertops is a great first step when it comes to updating a kitchen, according to Phil. “That does a lot to spruce up a kitchen without having to replace appliances and cabinets.” If your renovation budget doesn’t have room to completely makeover your kitchen, Phil suggests replacing cabinets and countertops, which allows you to keep your kitchen layout the same. “You’re not really

getting involved in a lot of expensive renovations, provided you keep the same foot print,” he says. “It can be difficult to make sure everything fits just right, but it can be done.” There are plenty of small jobs that can be done by the homeowner, Phil adds, like replacing cupboard handles and knobs that are old or outdated. “I’ve even heard of people just replacing their appliances, particularly with older colours that people don’t like anymore, and putting in stainless steel, which still make a kitchen look newer.”

Grime, grease and bacteria no match for steam washing



fter a winter of nasty weather, nothing brightens up a house and its yard like a good, thorough cleaning. While pressure washing is a popular choice for many homeowners, it can sometimes cause damage to the exterior of your home – from chipping off the paint on your siding or slowly eroding your driveway or walkways. Occasionally, the extreme high pressure used can even force water under the siding of your home which can lead to decay and expensive repairs down the road. Even windows can be damaged during pressure washing, as moisture is locked in that gives windows a foggy look, requiring them to eventually be replaced. South Surrey-based company AcroTech Cleaning Systems offers an alternative to pressure washing that is both gentle and effective, called steam washing. Using medium pressure hot water steam – which includes no other products or chemicals – technicians are able to gently clean the home,

In addition, the hot steam also kills and removes all dirt, moss, mould, mildew and bacteria from your home’s exterior, and decreases the chance for regrowth. Depending on the size of home, the entire cleaning process – including the outside of the house, driveway, walkways and roof – takes about six to eight hours.

AcroTech, which is the only provider of exterior steam washing on the Peninsula, also offers a range of other innovative cleaning services, including environmentally safe window maintenance and a vacuum guttercleaning system which leaves no mess or spills behind. As the sun starts to shine more often, now’s the time to get your house and yard cleaner than ever and become the envy of all your friends and neighbours, without damaging your home.

How to make your home SUNDECKS • RAILINGS allergen-free this spring GATES • FENCES Does your deck need a face lift? W hen the sneezing, sniffling and itching begins, allergy sufferers know it means one thing – spring has arrived. Because of the unusually mild winter in the Lower Mainland this year, allergies have come fast and furious, much to the irritation of those with a tissue permanently attached to their nose. The most common allergens that cause these symptoms are pollen, mould, animal dander and dust, and their effects can be intensified by such things as air pollution, humidity, tobacco smoke and aerosol sprays. While antihistamines and decongestants are sometimes a life-saver for allergy sufferers, there are ways to combat allergies by reducing the amount of allergens lingering in your home. It has long been thought that having carpet in your home is a bad idea if you suffer from allergies. While carpets can be a haven for allergens, as it acts like a trap for airborne particles, hard-floor surfaces can be just as bad, if not worse, according to Josie at Hallmark Carpets. “With hardwood, the dust just floats around,” Josie explains. “At least with carpet, it captures the dust.” When it comes to allergy-friendly carpet, Josie recommends choosing wool, which is non-allergenic, natural and comes in a wide variety of styles and colours. With any type of flooring, however, maintaining a high level of cleanliness is essential in minimizing the allergens in your home. The most important tool in achieving

Allergy sufferers can find some relief from symptoms by using certain household items. this is a high-quality vacuum cleaner, and there are plenty of specialized vacuums – including those with HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters – that can improve your home’s air quality. HEPA filters, first invented in the 1940s, are designed to capture particles down to 0.3 microns in size, at efficiency rates of 99.97 per cent. While vacuums with HEPA filters will help to eliminate allergens in your home, it’s important to vacuum often so those pesky particles don’t have a chance to pile up.  see page B11

Thank you Suzie! Thank you Kangen Water! Two years ago in May, my wife Suzie hired a professional research analyst to find the best water ionizer in the world. She had read a book on the acid alkaline connection and how to get your body from the acidic state to the alkaline state. Disease can’t grow in an alkaline body, and thrives in an acidic body. For 2 1/2 years and after five operations I was gravely ill and Suzie felt the Kangen water ionizer was the missing link to my recovery. Against my will she immediately purchased an Enagic alkaline water machine. She said, “Gary, this machine is going to make you better!” Of course I said, “Are you crazy? Water is water and you’re not buying it!” Well, she did. Suzie sat me down the next day and made me drink this Kangen water. At least 100 oz. I never drank water! Well, 3 1/2 weeks later I woke up one morning, put my running shoes on and felt fantastic! On April 22, 2009 the Peace Arch News ran a story on my recovery with this wonderful water. (Google Gary Derrett and read it). Since then Suzie and I are on a mission. We are sharing this wonderful Kangen water with our family and friends giving several testimonials around the country and the


U.S. Since then my story has been printed all over the world. Our mission is to help others with health issues such as diabetes, acid reflux, colitis, psoriasis, infection, fibromyalgia, arthritis, gout, and heart problems. Personally I have witnessed over 200 people get some of their health back. This Enagic Kangen water ionizer has been used for 35 years in over 200 hospitals and clinics in Japan. It is classified as a medical device. It produces the healthiest water on the planet right in your home. It’s alkaline water is six to eight times stronger an antioxidant than vitamin C or green tea. It’s the gold standard of all ionizers in the world. It’s endorsed by over 2600 doctors and physicians in Japan and one in five homes in Japan have an ionizer. They are the #1 healthiest people in the world. My body craves this water. It’s packed with tons of electrons, minerals, oxygen and it’s the most potent alkaline water in the world. CHANGE YOUR WATER, CHANGE YOUR LIFE! Suzie and I would like to share this technology and water with you. Please call for a water presentation. Simply, it will blow you away. Everyone will receive FREE, yes FREE, over 300 litres of water with a presentation. Our mission is to share and watch it work! It’s magic water. Please call Gary and Suzie for an appointment at 604-541-0018.
