Fastpitch team wins fourth national title

Renegades ‘91 celebrate in Saint John, N.B.

When the last out was made at 2010 Canadian Midget Girls Fastpitch Championships Sunday, the White Rock Renegades ’91 became more than just national champions. They also became the single-most successful minor softball team in the country’s history. The team’s midget crown – their second in a row – brought their title total to four since 2005. As peewees in ’05, the Renegades won nationals, and they followed that with

a Canadian bantam championship in 2007, and a midget title in 2009. This year’s banner was captured Sunday in Saint John, N.B., with a 3-0 win over the Scarborough Rays, who had defeated White Rock a day earlier, thus relegating them to the loser’s bracket before the Peninsula team clawed its way back to the finals. “There’s no doubt that this team will get inducted one day into the Softball Canada and Softball B.C. halls of fame,” said head coach Chuck Westgard.

“Four national titles – nobody has ever done that before.” The fourth championship is a fitting end for the ‘Gades, who are finished now in minor softball, although some players may elect to continue playing at the senior level. Four players – Tayla Westgard, Taylor McBeth, Marina Groenewegen and Lisa Fadden – were on the team for all four championships, and several more were around for three of them.  For more, see page 23

Forefathers’ photo flap at White Rock city hall Melissa Smalley Staff Reporter

The removal of old photographs from the walls at White Rock city hall ignited concern and confusion last week, prompting the mayor to halt city staff ’s redecorating efforts. Mayor Catherine Ferguson returned to city hall Friday after being on vacation to discover a number of photographs of past mayors and

councils had been removed from the walls of council chambers and the outer hallway. When she asked city staff about the photos, Ferguson said, she was told they would be put into storage. “I’m not happy about it,” Ferguson told Peace Arch News Monday morning. “I think it’s extremely disrespectful to those people who have served and built the city. To have (the

Lynne Sinclair said she was not surprised to learn the photos were taken down, citing an email she had received last week from City of White Rock communications officer Colleen Pepper advising council of  see page 4

A Surrey RCMP officer has been charged with pointing his gun at a group of teens. According to an RCMP statement released Friday, Const. Jason Gernhart was responding to a disturbance call last February at night in a park involving a group of youths, where it is alleged he pointed his firearm at them. But a South Surrey woman – who identifies herself as the mother of one of the youths involved – called Peace Arch News Monday, saying media reports of the RCMP news release give the impression the teens were “rowdy kids at a park, causing problems.” “(The stories) all had the same kind of tone – that there was a bunch of kids partying in a park and an officer pulled a gun on them,” she said. “That wasn’t the case… It wasn’t like there was this big party fest and they deserved it. That’s not how it happened.”  see page 4

Council to consider heritage foundation

SCHNEIDER'S

Preserving Surrey’s history

Breaded Veal Cutlets

Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Next month, Surrey council will be considering the creation of a heritage foundation, which would raise funds and oversee items of historic importance in this city. “We do have reason to have a foundation,” said Coun. Barbara Steele, who chairs the city’s heritage commission. Consultant Don Luxton is preparing a draft of what powers the foundation would have, and what kind of seed money would be required from the city to get it started. Steele said last week that foundation money could be used for education, heritage rail and also a planned performing arts centre in North Surrey, which will have a museum component to it. The recommendation for a foundation comes after five months of meetings by focus groups, which included people in the

fields of heritage, agriculture, planning and natural areas. The call for a heritage foundation started last year after the loss of several important historical buildings in Surrey, including the demolition of the Henry Parr and Martha Currie homes. Financial models for heritage foundations include flow-through (money in, money out), fundraising, hybrid (includes the first two) and a dedicated heritage fund. Each has advantages and disadvantages. Luxton, an expert on heritage preservation, gave examples of several cities with heritage foundations. The most likely scenario is a “made in Surrey” heritage foundation that would be a hybrid of direct city funding and fundraising. The earliest Surrey council could consider the plan is at its next regular meeting on Sept. 13.

news MP asks public safety minister to investigate

Border traffic safety crosses jurisdictions Alex Browne Staff Reporter

Who draws the line – or lines – on traffic safety at the border? Vic Toews, Canada’s Minister of Public Safety, is looking into a Peninsula resident’s concerns about a potentially dangerous lack of traffic control at the Peace Arch Canadian-U.S. border crossing, in the wake of an accident that injured a seven-year-old girl. Meanwhile, local agencies seem in disagreement over which one is responsible for traffic issues at the border. South Surrey resident Bill Hatton worries the crossing is an accident waiting to happen, due to southbound speeding and lack of control over lane changes in the northbound approach to the Canadian border. “Somebody’s going to get hurt,” Hatton warned, after writing a letter to local MP Russ Hiebert and noting that inconclusive conversations he’d had with Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officials indicate they feel the matter is out of their purview. The next day, Hiebert (South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale) told Peace Arch News he had spoken directly to Toews on the matter that day, during a break at the national Conservative caucus meeting in Ottawa. “He assured me he’d see what could be done,” Hiebert said. “He said he would raise

it with the CBSA, and would possibly raise it with public works. He is aware of the situation and takes it very seriously.” However, a CBSA spokesperson declined comment to Peace Arch News, suggesting questions over safety would be better directed at the RCMP’s Deas Island Highway Patrol, U.S. Customs and Border Protection or the B.C. Ministry of Transportation. And checks with these agencies pointed the finger back at CBSA. Cpl. Peter Somerville, of Deas Island Patrol, said that while RCMP officers routinely police speeding southbound traffic, they would enforce lane-control measures northward – such as solid white lines – only once they were established by either the B.C. Ministry of Transportation or the CBSA. “Then we’d technically be able to enforce them, but I’m not sure how we’d get down there to do that, Somerville said. Mike Milne, press officer for U.S. Customs Border Protection, said he is certain it is a Canadian issue. “Once traffic passes the 49th parallel in the park, it’s a B.C. highway,” he said. B.C. Ministry of Transportation spokesman Jeff Knight said the ministry is not aware of any complaints about the northbound approach, but that any traffic-safety improvements would be a federal matter.

Three lanes turn into eight northbound. “It’s federal land,” he said. “We do maintain it for the federal government, but in terms of whether it needs to be improved or not, it’s up to them.” Hatton’s letter to Hiebert refers to an Aug. 2 accident in which a girl had to be airlifted from the area, with extensive injuries, after being struck by a southbound vehicle. While the injuries were not life-threatening – and excessive speed was not a factor, according to police – Hatton fears it’s only a matter of time before a more serious incident occurs. Hatton notes southbound traffic is “a race – you don’t want anyone to get in to the line before you,” but that it’s nothing that can’t be fixed by more radar speed enforcement. Hatton’s northbound concerns focus on

lanes entering Canada’s new Peace Arch border facility, where a three-lane road – including one for Nexus pass holders – fans out into eight lanes with “no traffic control.” Impatient drivers continually change lanes to avoid holdups, narrowly avoiding collision, Hatton said, noting he observed “one car that crossed five lanes (and) another car was crossing two lanes in the opposite direction.” Hatton said conversations with a customs officer and a supervisor that day indicate CBSA staff have had previous complaints, but believe a solution is waiting for U.S. authorities to complete their own expansion. Hatton suggested a simple answer would be placing temporary plastic bollards limiting drivers’ choice of lanes at the border. “It’s like going to the grocery store and picking which checkout to choose.” Hatton said that while he is gratified Hiebert has been pursuing the problem, solving it can’t come too quickly for him. “What irks me,” said Hatton, “is that Canada spent a lot of money doing a new building and border-control facility and nobody thought about traffic control. “If the building cost millions, the traffic control part would be around $12,000. That they didn’t think that far ahead is a little disconcerting.”

Location shoots

Focus on film Alex Browne Arts Reporter

It’s lights, cameras – but not much action – in photogenic White Rock. While location requests in Surrey seem to be arriving steadily, filming of the comedymystery series, Psych, on White Rock’s waterfront last week represents the most the city has been lensed by either film or television this year. White Rock film-liaison officer Donna Joseph said that, in spite of interest by producers and location scouts, only two other officially sanctioned shoots have taken place in the city since the beginning of the year – both of them for Psych. “We’ve hardly had anything,” Joseph said, noting that there were only a total of eight shoots in the city in 2009. Even Psych is shooting less in the city – one of its favourite locations over the series’ five seasons. But Joseph said that has more to do with the efficiency of the series’ producers, who have banked a lot of stock shots in White Rock to edit into their studio-filmed scenes. “They’re using a lot of stuff they already shot here on their really big shoots,” she said. “They’re really on top of things – they’re very well prepared.” Joseph noted the shooting last week was for Episode 9 in an 18-show season. “I don’t know if they’re planning to come back here again this year.”

Kristian Rasmussen photos

Performer – and former Ocean Park resident – Thomas Potter films on the White Rock waterfront last week. It seems to be a different story in Surrey, where Kimberley Hall – filling in for vacationing film liasion Brandi Carr – says she has been fielding some three requests daily for the last week and a half. “I do believe it’s been pretty consistent,” Hall said, adding that major productions Surrey has hosted this year have included Twilight: Eclipse, as well as series such as Psych and the horrordrama Supernatural. According to filming information on their websites, while both cities require a $5 million certificate of insurance for filming, and have numerous charges for special resources such as fire equipment and RCMP

time, Surrey’s basic location rate ($200 for primary location, $100 for each additional) seems to have an edge over White Rock’s ($300 for each location). But Joseph said filming in White Rock seems to have been in a slump that dates back before she assumed film liaison duties a year ago. “It’s never been that big,” she said, adding that some projects last year were student films or projects “so tiny they hardly counted.” Joseph said that doesn’t mean that producers have lost White Rock’s number. “We get a lot of calls,” she said. “I pitch them, but they seem to go elsewhere.”

“I know that the mayor and council are very pro-filming, but when the location guys are coming here, it’s usually between us and some other municipality, such as North Vancouver. I guess it comes down to personal taste.” Among calls Joseph fielded this year was a production interested in making over the city’s council chambers to look like a courtroom. “I guess they found somewhere it would be easier to do that,” she said. A television series on home repair was also looking at the city for footage comparing alreadyshot Seattle homes with similar properties in Canada, she said.

Mother lodged police complaint  from page 1 The woman said her 17-yearold son and his friend met a group of about nine friends at Laronde Elementary on Feb. 6 around 9:30 p.m. “They weren’t really doing anything other than they were hanging around the (school) and I guess they were making a little bit of noise,� she said. “That’s where the noise complaint came from.� When the group made plans to hang out at a nearby location in Ocean Park, the woman said, her son and his friend walked

across the school field to meet the driver who was giving them a ride. It was while the two waited under a street lamp on the side of a road that the incident occurred, she said. The woman said she made the complaint to the RCMP about six weeks later, after her son told her what happened. According to the RCMP release, Gernhart will appear in Surrey Provincial Court to answer to the charges. No date has been set yet.

Gerhart – who had less than two years of service at the time of the incident – is also facing a separate internal Code of Conduct investigation related to the incident, the release states. He has been assigned to administrative, non-operational duties. The woman said the youths involved are “good kids.� “No kid deserves to have a gun pulled on them,� she said. Police would not comment further – nor confirm the location of the incident – citing that the matter is before the courts.

Mayor oversees return of photos  from page 1 work that would be taking place to esthetically improve council chambers and the lobby area. Sinclair said she is under the impression the photos were being cleaned and fitted with proper name plates. “This is just routine maintenance,� Sinclair said. “We all thought it was a great idea, we’ve talked about creating a better look inside.� Sinclair said that Ferguson may not have read the email while on vacation, which is why the absent photos came as a surprise to the mayor. “She should have read her email – we were clearly advised,� she said.

Pepper – who herself is on vacation this week – however, the mayor said it made no mention of the photos being permanently removed, which is what she was told on Friday. “I had a conversation with Ms. Pepper, who verbally advised me that they were going to be

taken down and put into storage,� Ferguson said, noting that the instructions to remove the photos would have come from city manager Peggy Clark, who is also on vacation and could not be reached for comment. By late Monday morning, Ferguson was back at city hall overseeing maintenance staff who were rehanging the photographs on the walls of council chambers. She said the photos would remain in place until council felt it was necessary to make any changes. “Council may make the decision later on that we’ll keep them up and have them in a different format, or in some other way,� she said. “Until such time, it’s going to stay the way it is, out of respect.�

A Winning Jade Buddha draws crowd Combination! news

Statue carved from gemstone discovered by South Surrey mining company

Andrew Bucholtz Black Press

As part of its ongoing world tour, the Jade Buddha for Universal Peace was unveiled in the courtyard of Aldergrove’s Hoa Nghiem Monastery Sunday for display until Aug. 15. The statue is the largest Buddha carved from gemstonequality jade in the world. It is 2.7 metres high, weighs more than four tonnes and is valued at $5 million. It was carved from the Polar Pride, an 18-tonne boulder of gemstone-quality jade that was discovered in northern B.C. in 2000 by South Surrey’s Jade West company. “It’s really neat, nice to be a part of it,” said John Makepeace, president of Jade West Engineering, which has been family-owned and -operated for more than 20 years. Makepeace’s brother, Kirk – who owns the company and helms Jade West’s mining division – was the one who actually discovered the jade boulder, John said. The Polar Pride remains the largest boulder of gemstonequality jade ever found in the world. Ian Green, chairman and director of The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion in Australia, which commissioned the statue and organizes its touring, said the Buddha has received a tremendous response so far. “In the first year of its travels around the world, over 4.5 million people have come to see it,” Green said. He expects it to be popular in Aldergrove as well. Green said the statue’s time at Aldergrove’s monastery is particularly important, as it’s the only stop on its current tour in Let’s go Shopping in

Harry Hunt photo

The Jade Buddha will be in Aldergrove until Aug. 15. B.C., the province from which it originated. “For me, particularly, to follow it all the way and especially coming back to Vancouver, it’s completing the circle,” he said. “It’s incredibly special.” The statue was carved in Thailand, and took nearly five years to complete. The design is based on the Buddha inside the Mahabodhi Stupa in Bodh Gaya in India. Green said that particular

Buddha was chosen because it is recognized by more Buddhists than any other design. “It’s for all Buddhists, beyond all Buddhists, all beings, so we wanted to make it as universal as possible,” he said. Carving began in 2003 and the statue was completed in December 2008. After completion, it was blessed by Venerable Krubar Boon Choon Yamsunkhvaro in an event attended by 100,000 people on the Thai–

Cambodian border, toured Vietnam for three months in March 2009, travelled through Australia for half a year and was then consecrated in Australia in December 2009 by the Dalai Lama. It’s spent most of 2010 touring the U.S. After its stay in Aldergrove, it’s headed to Seattle and then California. In 2011, it will visit more American cities and then head to Europe. Green said the tour was inspired by Lama Zopa Rinpoche, who played a key role in the statue’s creation and envisioned it as a force that could inspire people and urge them to seek peace. “I think it will tour for another five or six years at least,” Green said. “By then, it will really fulfill Lama Zopa’s vision of illuminating the world.” The statue’s eventual home will be in the Great Stupa of Universal Compassion, near Bendigo, Australia. The Buddha is currently at the Hoa Ngheim Monastery, at 2623 272 St. The unveiling ceremony also served as the monastery’s grand opening. Vuu said the statue’s arrival presents the perfect time for them to have a grand opening celebration. “It’s just a really special time for us,” he said. “Normally, when you have a grand opening, you can’t draw a large crowd, but the power of the Buddha brings everyone together.” Vuu said the statue is open to the public, and he’d love to see people stop by and see the it during its stay. “The Jade Buddha represents the peace of the world,” he said. “We want to bring our people together here.” - with files from Nick Greenizan

Since opening my restaurant at Grandview Corners more than a year ago, I have found advertising in the Peace Arch News to be a simple and effective way to promote my business on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. I have seen especially good results with ads that I have placed in their monthly coupon promotion, Clip or Click. In March of this year, I ran a buy-one-get-onefree coupon on the back page of the coupon wrap and was delighted to receive more than 300 coupons back from customers over subsequent weeks. On the advice of my advertising representative, there was no expiration date on the coupon which was extremely helpful with the promotion, as it encouraged people to come in even weeks after the advertisement was published. I was very impressed with the response to the coupon and the feedback that I have received from customers since then has been extremely positive as well. Working with the Peace Arch News over the past year has been a pleasant and beneficial experience, and everyone involved in the admaking process has always gone to great lengths to make sure my ads are just the way I want them. I would highly recommend any local businesses advertise with Peace Arch News – after seeing first hand the positive response from their readers, I am confident that my ads have paid off with increased customer visits.

opinion Peace Arch News Published at White Rock by Black Press Ltd.

editorial

Traffic concerns need addressing hank you, South Surrey resident Bill Hatton, for raising a timely issue of traffic safety at the Canada-U.S. border. Hatton, returning from the U.S. to his home the other week, noticed an unsafe situation of diverging traffic lanes in the approach to Canada’s customs booths. It seems that northbound drivers – all seeking the least held-up lane and without clear traffic controls – are veering over several lanes in a veritable free-for-all that conforms to no reasonable expectation of safety. Hatton is right – such a situation could easily result in a tragic accident. The airlifting of an injured seven-year-old girl, struck by a southbound car earlier this month, should be enough to raise an alarm about the need for traffic safety – in both directions – at the border. It is commendable that Hatton has taken up the matter with Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) and subsequently, with MP Russ Hiebert (Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale). Hiebert promptly took the opportunity of a national Conservative caucus meeting in Ottawa to apprise Vic Toews, federal Minister of Public Safety, of the problem. Toews, Hiebert said, takes the situation “very seriously” and promised to raise it with the CBSA. But that commitment seems to be taking its time trickling down to the local level. For proof, one need only witness the round robin of buck-passing between the CBSA and other agencies, all of whom seem unwilling to accept responsibility for traffic safety in this potentially hazardous spot. At last count, CBSA officials had pointed the finger at U.S. Customs Border Protection, the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and the Deas Island Highway Patrol as having more of a say on the issue than they do. And each of these agencies have come back with an opinion that it is ultimately a federal government responsibility. It is surely time – now that the federal public safety minister has declared an interest – for someone to stand up and take responsibility for traffic safety at the border. This should not be overly complicated, particularly when human lives are at stake. Will it take tragic accident before this matter is addressed with anything more than platitudes and excuses? Do innocent lives have to be lost before this file is red flagged? Does it have to become an international incident? The CBSA – or whoever is responsible – should act before a potential black eye becomes a traffic black spot.

80 responding horrifying and tragic enough and on my list of things I don’t need to know.” “I skipped the trial, and I certainly skipped the tapes. I can hardly bear to look at the picture,” a commenter wrote on a news site. The evidence presented at the trial was disturbing, horrific. Investigators found a gun with a sex-toy with DNA from one of Pickton’s victims fitted over top, night vision goggles, handcuffs, bloodstains, heads in buckets – details that sent the young daughter of a victim sobbing from the courtroom. The Pickton farm was essentially a death camp for drug addicts in the heart of suburbia. The compulsion to look away from Pickton’s crimes is understandable – even my friends didn’t ask me about the trial. But to say it’s simply too gruesome is to miss the point, which is that terrible things happened to dozens of women. Women society had unabashedly written off. To look away is to remain ignorant of the fact the women were mothers, daughters, and sisters who were, and still are, very much missed. “All we have are bone fragments,” lamented one relative speaking at Pickton’s sentencing. Some of the families don’t even have that. Thanks to the humanity shown by the loved ones of the victims, covering the trial wasn’t an experience devoid of all hope. During this final chapter, we need to examine what took place, so we, as a community, can ensure it doesn’t happen again. Jennifer Lang is the editor of the Cloverdale Reporter.

Incredibly fun yet dangerous Editor: As a longtime motorcycle rider, I am dumbfounded by the number of motor scooters and electric bikes appearing on our roads. I see advertisements stating no driver’s licence and no insurance required, yet these vehicles are capable of doing 20 km/h or more. In the advertisements and on the streets, I see middle-aged women wearing only shorts and singlets and loose-fitting helmets. I have seen young teenage girls, and grandpa with granddaughter weaving in and out of traffic on King George Boulevard. I have even seen a scooter rider under the back end of an SUV at 140 Street and Crescent Road – the emergency vehicle was just arriving. Have they ever thought what would happen to their bodies if they come off, even at 5 or 10 km/h, never mind being hit by a car? Has anybody explained to them what countersteering is, or that you can buy Kevlar-lined jeans and all sorts of safety gear at any motorcycle store? I personally have an allergy to asphalt, which causes a severe case of road rash when bare skin comes into contact with it. This, however, can usually be cured by extensive skin grafts or reconstructive surgery if death does not occur. Two-wheeled transportation is incredibly fun yet can be extremely dangerous. On a motorcycle, scooter or e-bike, you are not surrounded by 3,000 pounds of steel and thus you have to be extremely alert, road and traffic savvy, because you always hear “I didn’t even see them.” Use common sense, wear safety gear and take a motorcycle training course. Ron Clough, Surrey

Player’s honour stokes memory Editor: Re: Inducted at last, Aug. 4. I read with great interest the story of Ken Webb being inducted to the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame. My father is also a member of the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame and, from reading this article, probably played against Webb during a few of the mentioned Mann Cup games. My dad, Lloyd “Moon” Wootton, was the goalie for Owen Sound for one Mann Cup and also for the Peterborough team, winning four Mann Cups in the early ’50s. At least one of these games, it seems, Ken travelled east for. My father passed away at the young age of 62 and my sister, Donna, has written a book about his Mann Cup years with Owen Sound and Peterborough. I can’t help but to think of how my father would love to have sat with Ken reminiscing of games they played against each other.

As Ken says, “It’s a game that gets in your blood” – a notion my father would surely attest to. Congratulations, Ken. It brings back some very fond memories of my dad. Denise Wootton, Surrey

Yes, we have had enough Editor: Maybe it is time for those in waiting for medical care – while the doctors are all off on holiday, according to premier-in-waiting Kevin Falcon (Staff vacations delay surgeries: Falcon, July 14) – to give our health minister some of his own medicine. In this memory-challenged time of immediate gratification, perhaps some have forgotten the mantra he pounded into the heads of

the Cloverdale electorate. When Falcon was running eons ago against the fiasco of the NDP and Glen Clark, he had a slogan he used, over and over, to get voters, Kevin Falcon angry at the NDP health minister fast-ferry fiasco, to get himself and his buddy Premier Gordon Campbell elected. It was: “Have you had enough yet?’ It is maybe time the people turn that phrase back on him, where it currently belongs. HST and summer medical shortages rein the day. And where does the responsibility belong? As Churchill said, politicians are like diapers; they need to be changed frequently, often for the same reason. Steven Faraher-Amidon, Surrey

Ambassadors Jana Keogh and Lindsay Bevan are joining five other young women taking a stance against tanning.

Bright side to exposure to the sun Editor: Re: Anti-tan ambassadors take it to the beach, Aug. 6. While focusing on the dangers of melanoma, the White Rock/Surrey Sun Ambassadors working for the Canadian Cancer Society are ignoring the positive health benefits of suntanning that include decreasing other deadly forms of deep body cancer and reducing a variety of serious diseases. Sunlight is the best natural source of vitamin D, which is produced in the skin by exposure to ultraviolet light. People living in northern climates or those with darker skin are often vitamin D deficient, due to a lack of exposure to sunlight, especially during winter months. Our natural tanning process provides skin protection against sunburning and dermal damage that greatly increase the odds of developing skin cancer. Unlike some sunscreens, a natural tan provides reliable full-spectrum – UVA and UVB – protection from burning that doesn’t rub, wash, sweat or wear off the way lotion can. People who live in regions with more sunlight have been found to have a much lower incidence of death from ovarian, pancreatic, breast, prostate and colon cancers than those who live in places with less sunshine. Harvard University research has suggested people

who have sufficient vitamin D due to UV exposure may prevent 30 deaths for each one caused by skin cancer. High levels of vitamin D have also shown to be beneficial for those recovering from cancer while reducing incidence of cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile diabetes, osteoporosis, tuberculosis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. Sunlight and simulated sunlight “doses” are a successful treatment for seasonal affective disorder, also known as the “winter blues.” Sun exposure and natural vitamin D production in summer is believed to be associated with decreased influenza rates. Exposure to bright light has been found to help alleviate symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, such as mild depression, mood swings, physical discomfort and social withdrawal. Exposure to UV-light is commonly prescribed by doctors to reduce the unsightly appearance and discomfort of psoriasis and to treat a variety of fungal infections affecting skin and nails. So take care of your skin, avoid sunburns and over exposure, but enjoy the healthy benefits of a safe tan. While you may be encouraged to “slip, slap, slop”, don’t be afraid to have “fun in the sun.” See you at the beach! Don Pitcairn, Surrey

that the matter is under investigation. The witness said that when he returned to the scene around 10:30 a.m., two more police cars and an additional bylaw van were present. Bylaw officers wearing respiratory masks were seen coming out from beneath the house’s deck, the local resident said, adding he had previously noted at least two rabbits and one dog kept under the deck at the property.

essica Theriault has never taken on a fundraising initiative before, and she isn’t much of a walker, but that’s not stopping her from strolling 30 kilometres Saturday in her effort to collect $2,000 for the Weekend to End Women’s Cancers. She’s taking the plunge in honour of her mother, who was known to “go for that long drive for a short cup of coffee.” Before losing her battle with cancer in June, it was not unusual for well-known White Rock business owner Annemieke Hillhouse to drive 10 hours to Canmore, Alta., stay overnight at a hotel, and have breakfast with her son in the morning before driving back home to the Peninsula. It’s that same sense of spontaneity that spurred Theriault’s participation in this weekend’s BC Cancer Foundation fundraiser – that, and the memory of her mother. “I’m just going to wing it,” Theriault said. “(I’ll) do it for mom.” Hillhouse died June 10, six months after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The 69-year-old had owned the Gallery Central Plaza Art Supplies and Framing for close to 30 years, and worked at the store up until her diagnosis last December. Theriault – who took over the family business in May after working alongside her mother for 25 years – said the disease had already spread too far to be operable by the time Hillhouse went to the doctor for stomach discomfort. She underwent four rounds of

chemotherapy, to no effect. Despite the grim prognosis, Theriault said her mother kept everyone laughing up to her last days. And, although Hillhouse couldn’t communicate very much in her final week at Peace Arch Hospital, her face would light up every time a loved one stepped into her room. “She would get a big smile from ear to ear,” recalled Theriault. It will be with Hillhouse in mind that Theriault joins thousands of others in the Aug. 14 walk in Vancouver. She has to raise a minimum of $2,000 to take part, and is currently accepting donations under team name Gallery Girls at www.endcancer.ca All money raised will help fund BC Cancer Foundation’s efforts to end breast and gynecological cancers – diseases that, according to the event website, one in seven Canadian women will be diagnosed with in her lifetime. “You hear of so many people who are effected by cancer,” Theriault said, noting she hopes to join the event again next year. “(I’m) raising money to try and find a cure for this disease. “I think it’s just an important thing to do.” Among the many lessons Theriault learned from her mother – such as to be spontaneous and enjoy every day – there is one in particular that will hold special meaning during this weekend’s trek. “Never give up,” Theriault said. “I know it’s something she used during her fight and that’s going to be going through my mind Saturday.”

‘Civic treasure’ passes away

A U T H E N T I C I TA L I A N R xE xS xT xA xU xR xA xN xT

Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A former Surrey deputy fire chief and recently named “civic treasure” died last week in the company of his family at Peace Arch Hospital. Lorne Pearson – also a longtime volunteer with the Surrey Archives – was 77. Pearson lived in Surrey since the 1940s, when the population was just 20,000, and was hired as firefighter No. 8 in 1957. Boasting an incredible memory, he was a treasure trove of historical information, making him a natural fit for the Surrey Archives in the 1990s. His recollections were so sharp, archivists often turned to him to help identify people in photos, many whom he knew. “That’s the most gratifying part of the whole thing – to relive the early days and see what your comrades were like and how you worked together,” Pearson told Black Press in an interview two years ago. Pearson was known as a friend who could listen and laugh, and also spin a great story. “He was an absolute treat to be around, a good honest man and a great promoter of Surrey’s history,” said museum reference specialist Ryan Gallagher. “He will be missed dearly by everyone at Surrey’s Heritage Services.”

Lorne Pearson, in his early days as a Surrey firefighter. He also served as deputy fire chief. On July 27, Pearson attended the Surrey retired firefighters’ lunch where he received an award from the B.C. Fire Chiefs for his time as a member of the Fire Chiefs Association. His son, John, said his dad had his game face on for the full five-hour event. As secretary of the retired firefighters, Pearson said, “somebody’s going to have

Principal remembered by loved ones what’s Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

Bruce Stewart – a popular elementary school principal who grew up on the Peninsula – lost his battle with a rare blood disorder last month, shortly after receiving the heart transplant he had been waiting a year for. Stewart, 52, died July 20 at St. Paul’s Hospital from an infection that set in his lungs following the surgery. Last November, Stewart told Peace Arch News how his heart contained proteins called amyloids that congregate on an organ and attack it. When he was first admitted to the Vancouver hospital in July 2009, doctors told the Kelowna resident he had several days to weeks to live. His daughter, Shannon, whose wedding was scheduled for later that summer, made hurried plans to be married the following day instead. Stewart walked her down the aisle in the hospital’s chapel, where bridesmaids sported matching tops and blue jeans. The bride wore a white summer dress and her parents

Peninsula-born principal Bruce Stewart, was celebrated by friends and family at a service last month in Kelowna. donned boutonniéres made by hospital staff. “It was just a miracle,” Stewart had said of giving his daughter away. Stewart’s life was celebrated by friends and family at a service July 27 in Kelowna, his older sister, Margaret Ney, told Peace Arch News last week. Stewart was the youngest of six children, and was born in Peace Arch Hospital. He was told by his mother, Chris Stewart, that he was the first baby delivered in the then-newly built facility.

He attended White Rock Elementary and White Rock Junior Secondary, and played in local minor football, soccer, lacrosse and baseball. “He was the kind of person who was a natural leader but always picked up the underdog,” Ney said. “He always had a following of kids who needed someone to watch out for them.” Stewart moved to Alberta just before entering Grade 11 at Semiahmoo Senior, eventually using his people skills to become a teacher.

His most recent education position was as principal of a Kelowna elementary school, which dedicated a courtyard to Stewart in May. “Bruce was the kind of person who was all about the kids,” Ney said. “He always met the children at the door to greet them, all by name, and he was always at the door to say goodbye to them at the end of the day.” When Stewart became sick in spring 2009 and edema caused his feet to swell out of his shoes, he met the students at the door in his socks. “He just felt it was so important that he had a relationship with the kids in the school,” Ney said. “Even in pain and discomfort, he still (considered it) a priority.” Stewart is survived by four children – Heather, Michael, Shannon and Scott – and wife Liz, who stayed by his side during the 13 months he was at St. Paul’s. “She was there no matter what,” her mother-in-law said. “She is remarkable for her loyalty and kindness to her husband.”

Panto auditions It’s not too early to start thinking about the winter holidays, according to White Rock Players Club, which begins the audition process for its annual Christmas pantomime in mid-August. This year’s panto will be an update of a Players Club perennial, Charlotte Johnson’s, Robinson Crusoe, directed by Katherine Bethell. According to a club release, Bethell is looking for “actors of all ages, all skill levels and all sizes” for this theatrical musical

comedy and the age range for participants can be anything from eight to 80. Auditions will be held at the Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd. on Sunday, Aug. 15 (noon to 6 p.m.), Sunday, Aug. 29 (noon to 6 p.m.) and Monday, Aug. 30 (7 to 10 p.m.) Characters to be cast include Ma Peddler (the Dame, a female role played by a male a la Dame Edna); Robinson Crusoe (female, 16 or older); Lady Pamela (female, 16 or older); lady Pamela’s governess Miss UpsonDowns (female), Friday (male or female); and Robinson’s friend Polly the Parrot. Also to be cast: hissable villain Don Juan de Segusting (male or female), Captain Skullduggery (chief henchman); Mister Morgan (assistant henchman), the Cannibal King, the Cannibal Queen and a variety of chorus roles. No appointments are necessary for the first-come-first served auditions, but auditionees should be prepared to wait. They should also be prepared with a song – any kind is acceptable – which must be sung “a cappella” (without accompaniment), and may be asked to read some “sides” (pages from the script). Callbacks will be Tuesday, Sept. 7 and rehearsals (Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons) start on Sept. 14. The show runs from Nov. 25 to Dec. 26

Youth jam session The “Jam Session,’ presented by Todd Brewer School of Music, runs Friday nights from 6 to 8:45 p.m. for ages eight to 17. Beginners to advanced musicians are welcome. For details, contact Todd at 604538-2295.

Dean Paul Gibson One of Earl Marriott Secondary theatre program’s most successful alumni, Jessie award-winner Dean Paul Gibson, returns to Vancouver’s Bard on the Beach festival this year in a dual role – director of the main stage production of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, which runs to Sept. 25, and as the title character in Falstaff (running until Sept. 22). The gorgeously-costumed Much Ado About Nothing has been set by Gibson in an appropriate period, the Edwardian era just before the Great War. In contrast, Falstaff, directed by Glynis Leyshon, is set in late medieval period. An adaptation of sections of Henry IV parts one and two, it traces the story of young prince Hal (later Henry V) and his misspent youth under the influence of outrageous drunk and brawler Sir John Falstaff. One of theatre’s most beloved characters, Falstaff was certainly a favourite of Queen Elizabeth I, who commissioned The Merry Wives of Windsor specifically because she wanted to see “Sir John in love.” For tickets, call 604-739-0559 or 1-877739-0559.

Big plays lead Rams to win Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

After two straight losses to start the season, the Big Kahuna Rams finally put a notch in the win column, after a 35-17 road win Saturday over the Victoria Rebels. The Rams’ offence, while perhaps not in top gear, was still in better form than the previous two weeks, with 246 yards of net offence and a handful of big plays. Rookie quarterback Nathaniel White, an Earl Marriott Secondary alum, connected with new receiver Matt Chapdelaine – a B.C. Lions’ draft pick – on a 91-yard touchdown strike; wideout Zach Middleton had a 65-yard reception; reigning

B.C. Football Conference special teams player-of-the-year Nick Downey had an 86-yard punt return for a score; and defensive back Belah Small had two interceptions, one of which he returned 43 yards into the end zone. Running back Jake Glass had the Rams’ other TD, on an 11-yard run. White finished the day 3-for-6 for 105 yards passing – 91 of which came on the Chapdelaine toss – while Jon Ellingson also saw time under centre, completing just three of 11 passes, for 85 total yards, including the 65-yard Middleton touchdown. Ellingson threw two interceptions, while White threw one. Victoria managed two touch-

downs, both from running back Sam Adu, and one field goal against the Big Kahuna defence, which was led by Small, who had five tackles and one pass knockdown to go with his two picks, and Brian Nevins, who had one sack. Satbir Jawandha also had an interception, which he returned 24 yards. Despite the win, the Rams had trouble stopping Adu, who rumbled for 194 yards on the ground, including one 88-yard burst. Conversely, the Rams’ leading rusher was Sean O’Neill, who finished with 51 yards on eight carries. Next up for the 1-2 Rams is a rematch with the Rebels, Saturday, 4 p.m. at South Surrey Athletic Park.

Eagles trade for trio of players Craig Morgan With training camp less than a month away, Surrey Eagles head coach Matt Erhart has been busy bringing new players into the fold, making two separate deals last week. Erhart’s first move was to acquire 19-year-old North Delta defenceman Mitch Jones from the Huntsville Otters of the Ontario Junior Hockey League in exchange for future considerations. The trade ensures that Jones gets to stay in the B.C. Hockey League; he played last season for the Merritt Centennials in the B.C. Hockey League, but his rights were swapped to the Alberta Junior League’s Grande Prairie Storm, and then to Huntsville this summer. The six-foot-three blue-liner tallied five goals and 23 assists, to go along with 70

penalty minutes, in 47 games last season. “Mitch will provide us some high-end skill and we look forward to his development with (our) program,” Erhart said in a release. The Eagles’ second move came late last week, when Erhart shipped defenceman Cole Gelley to the Trail Smoke Eaters for 20-year-old defenceman Wade Bennett and forward Robert Lindores, 19. Bennett, a Gardena, Calif. native, is the brother of last year’s BCHL leading scorer, Beau Bennett – who was a first-round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins earlier this summer. Last season with Trail, Wade Bennett had three goals and 22 points. Lindores didn’t provide much offence to the Smokies’ attack last year – he

has just six goals and nine assists in 89 career games – but at six-foot-one and 200 pounds, should add a physical presence to the Eagles’ bottom two lines. “We’re very happy to acquire two players we targeted in the off-season,” Erhart said. “Robert brings us good size and a powerforward mentality on the ice. We’re looking for him to have a breakout season. “Wade is a puck-moving defenceman who sees the ice well. He will be a great fit.” Gelley spent the last two seasons with the Birds. The swap continues the Eagles’ blue-line makeover – the team has brought in three new defencemen this off-season, including veteran Matt Mazzarolo, who was acquired from Merritt in June. The Eagles’ training camp begins Aug. 23 at South Surrey Arena, with scrimmages running daily at 3:30 p.m.

Gary’s former spouse Lee, their 2 children, Coral(Tim) and Spencer(Randi) and his 4 grandchildren loved & miss him dearly. A memorial to share stories will be held at Coral’s Friday, Aug. 13th 4-8p.m. 604-530-9715 19891-8th Langley, B.C. A family service to be announced at a later date.

STEWART, James Bruce Jan., 26, 1957 - July 20, 2010 James Bruce Stewart went to be with the Lord on July 20th, 2010 at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver. He received exceptional care and made friends with many of the staff on the Cardiac Ward. His family was presented with a booklet prepared by the nurses, doctors and hospital staff in honour of Bruce citing him as a model patient throughout his lengthy, trying fifteen-month hospitalization during which he encouraged other patients. Bruce and his wife, Liz. married in June 1980, marked their 30th wedding anniversary during his hospitalization, plus Bruce gave his second daughter, Shannon, in marriage to Jordan Giesbrecht at a beautiful wedding staged at the hospital. Bruce leaves behind his four children, Heather, Mike (fiancé Leah Keeping), Shannon (Jordan Giesbrecht), and Scott and his mother, Chris Stewart; sisters Rosemary Hudson & Margaret (George Ney); and brothers Ken (Jane), David (Elizabeth), and Rob (Karen); brothers & sisters-in-law the Peacock family, John (Marlene), Harold (Nancy), David (Becky) Steve (Helen), Nathan (Mardell) Jack (Louise), Miriam (Lee) Obst, as well as numerous nieces, nephews uncles and aunts. Bruce became a principal /teacher at a young age at Alberta schools at Barons, Iron Springs and Coaldale before he accepted principalships at Mayne Island & Salt Spring prior to Kelowna where he served for ten years, loved his students and made a lasting impression with everyone he met. Bruce loved his family, church and people and was always quick to have a smile and help out in any way. He enjoyed coaching many team sports and Mayne Island always was a special place for him. We miss Bruce very much and his special way with people. Service was held in Kelowna on July 27th.

ROAD TEST – RB -DODGE CHALLENGER R/T CLASSIC 2010 Story and photos by Rob Beintema Metroland Newspapers Carguide Magazine.

I stabbed the starter button and the engine awoke, snarling to life with that typical V8 sound and swagger. The stereo lit up with Dion, trying to sing “The Wanderer” over the bass background of the engine beat. I wriggled happily into the bucket seat, jammed the fuel receipt for $5.28 into my shirt pocket, chucked the pistol-grip shifter into first gear and rumbled away from the gas station. I know. So far, it sounds more like driving a time machine than a modern car. And, in a sense, that’s just what I was doing, relishing the retro flavour and the sounds and sensations of unapologetic power. I was rambling the roads in a 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic, a muscle car made for today but embodied with the spirit of performers past. Okay, I admit I’d set the stage for this blast from the past with my golden oldies CD. And, as for the $5.28 gas bill, well, that was just from topping up the tank to establish a baseline for my fuel economy test. Which, as an early omen, along with the 17.1L/100km average displayed from a previous driver, did not bode well for the ol’ bank account, despite the lower, official fuel econ rating. Somehow, that still didn’t seem reason enough to wipe the grin off my face. Forty years have passed since the original Challenger hit the streets and this latest version faithfully reproduces the heritage feel, flavour and muscle car characteristics of a classic in a new package packed with modern conveniences and technologies. The 2010 Dodge Challenger is Canadian-built on Chrysler’s Brampton, Ontario production line and it shares the LX platform with the 300, the former Magnum and the current Charger. In fact, it wouldn’t be unfair to think of the Challenger as a twodoor Charger coupe, despite styling differences. The Challenger comes in a three model selection, reflecting a trio of powertrain choices. The lineup starts with a 250 hp 3.5-litre V6 in SE and SXT trim levels. With a starting price of $25,995, this is an affordable, if somewhat power-limited nod to nostalgia. More in keeping with the spirit of the original, the Challenger R/T ups the ante with a 5.7-litre V8 that makes a more macho 372 hp and 400 lb/ft of torque. This was the engine I was testing – burly, noisy, potent in power, sound and fury, and, yeah, it’s a HEMI. My tester was actually one step higher up the trim ladder, an R/T Classic model that tips a nod to the past with heritage cues like the dual throwback A-line body-side R/T stripes that set off the Deep Water Blue Pearl paint job so nicely. Standing on large 20-inch polished-chromed heritage wheels mounted with performance rubber, the R/T Classic also adds

a functional hood scoop, ‘Challenger’ script fender badging, a classic egg-crate grille with traditional ‘R/T’ badge, a bodycolour rear spoiler, dual chromed square exhaust tips and a chromed ‘FUEL’ filler door. Very nice. The classic rear-wheel-drive V8 power surge can be translated through a five-speed automatic with overdrive that allows manual shift selection or through an optional six-speed manual. Much as I enjoyed snicking gears through the six-speed shifter, this manual tranny employs the accursed 1st-to-4th skipshift. This was my only real gripe with the car. I believe and hope there is an especially warm room in automotive hell reserved for those who invent gimmicks that circumvent a driver’s freedom of choice – like skip-shift programs, BMW i-Drives or mirrors that tilt and/or auto-dim without on/off switches. Don’t let my grumping or the skip-shift feature put you off the Challenger, however. The same TR-6060 tranny is in almost every modern muscle car, from the Camaro to the Shelby GT500, and it can be easily defeated by aggressive shifting or aftermarket add-ons. But, grrrr, anyways. On the plus side though, oh baby, the sheer joy of just listening to that engine as you work your way up through the gears, the accelerating roars punctuated by popping snarls as the clutch breaks the engine loose to spin free between shifts. Just lovely. As far as pony cars go, the Challenger is one of the biggest entries, larger in every dimension than competitors like the Camaro or Mustang. Sure, with the front seat racked all the way back, you can barely fit your fist between the seat back and second row but, with a little compromise, there’s more passenger room on the 60/40 split back bench than with most 2+2 rear seats. And stand behind the car and the Challenger’s classic North American roots show in a wide-assed back end that gapes open with enough trunk space for four golf bags. Inside, the Challenger R/T Classic is comfortable, less kitschy than competitors, with trapezoidal door panel cues that reflect the window shapes, and a cluster of four “bomb” gauges hearkening back to past styling cues. The shifter bezel angles nicely toward the driver and, in fact, the instruments and dash layout reflect the driver-orientation of a true performance car. Challenger R/T models added LEDilluminated cupholders, auto headlamps and door handle lighting for 2010. I just can’t list all the safety, security and amenity features that culminate with available voice-controlled Uconnect navigation and communication systems, but they can be explored at leisure on Chrysler Canada’s website. And, lest you think I’ve forgotten the last of the trio of powertrain and model choices, yes, I should mention the ultimate Challenger SRT8, harnessing a 6.1-litre, bored-out version of the HEMI V8,
