Hand-delivered letters draw suspicions from recipients

‘Tis the season of scams in the mailbox Nick Greenizan Staff Reporter

Suspicious letters promising a mouthwatering investment opportunity have resurfaced on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. And savvy residents who recognized the scam want to make sure others don’t fall victim to the familiar fraud. “This time of year, there’s always somebody

who gets taken in a scam like this, and I just want to make sure that doesn’t happen,” said Steve Talbot. Talbot, a White Rock resident, found the dubious letter in his Coldicutt Avenue mailbox last week. Personally addressed, it claimed to be from a “banker and private consultant” in London, England. In the letter, the banker

offered Talbot a too-good-to-be-true investment opportunity if he was willing to send money. The banker also asked that Talbot keep details of the arrangement quiet. The envelope, Talbot added, had a Tanzanian stamp on it, but no postmarks from Canada Post. “So that means it walked over here,” said Talbot. “It didn’t go through the system.”

Talbot contacted police, who referred him to the Department of Customer Affairs in Ottawa. A similar letter arrived in Kerry Cranfield’s mailbox on Christmas Eve. He, too, knew it was a scam. “I’ve heard about this. It actually amused me that I got it,” Cranfield said. � see page 4

Coroner’s quest inspired by victims and their families

Looking for closure amidst the tragedy Tracy Holmes

f all the pain, suffering and injury that happens around the world, there is none more horrific than that inflicted on humans by humans. As a coroner, South Surrey’s Owen Court has seen more than enough evidence to make this statement with confidence. “Every time I say I’ve seen everything, something happens that proves me wrong,” Court said. “I’ve seen a lot of people who didn’t deserve to die the way they did.” ••• Court, 37, began determining answers to deaths about a decade ago, and went on to take charge of reviewing all child deaths in B.C.

But it was in 2004 that he took on the six counts of second-degree murder. He was initially charged in connection role that would prove to be the most with more than two dozen killings, important in his career to date: leading the coroner’s side of the Vancouver and forensics linked 33 missing missing-women investigation. women to his Port Coquitlam pig Spanning nine years, the Robert farm, including one whose identity remains a mystery.

Residents of a South Surrey housing development are warning neighbours to keep their children and pets close, after discovering signs a cougar may be roaming the area. The carcass of a deer was found Sunday evening in a wooded area near 193 Street and 3 Avenue, at the edge of Margaret Corrigan’s rural property. “We’re pretty sure it’s a cougar kill,” Corrigan said, noting a nearby tree has fresh scratch marks. “Something came and got it in the darkness. We’re going to phone the neighbours and just let them know what has happened and if they have any small children, to just kind of watch that.” It’s advice Paul Grant is taking to heart. The father of two said his family is “going to have to make some new rules” – including no going outside without an adult – for daughters Hayley, 11, and Maya, 7, in light of the activity. Children fit the profile of animals that get attacked, Grant said, explaining they are small, not intimidating and are often looking down at things on the ground. “We’re going to have to start keeping a pretty good eye out,” he said.

Focus ‘is on victims, families’ � from page 1 to return to the field after 27 months as a Mountie – drawn by the satisfaction he’d found in death investigation and prevention. At the time, then-Fraser Regional Coroner Kent Stewart had charge of the Pickton file. Court inherited the case after Stewart was appointed chief coroner in Saskatchewan. Court doesn’t know if he had the option of declining the investigation. It didn’t matter. The thought “never once” occurred to him. At times, over the years that followed, the file consumed entire weeks of Court’s life. And every aspect of it was graphic. “Nothing’s more horrific than the things that humans do to each other,” he said. Court described the investigation as massive – from the number of victims and amount of evidence, to the volume of investigators and stakeholders involved. His greatest challenge, he said, was to provide the families of the missing women with the information they needed, while respecting the sensitive nature of the ongoing criminal investigation. “Once the case was officially concluded, it was a relief to be able to have frank conversations with the families and finally return the remains of these women.” Such was his connection to the families, Court was invited in September to attend the funeral of one of the victims. In a career where he has always learned about people through their deaths, it was a rare opportunity to learn, from the woman’s friends and family, who she was in life. Despite the investigation’s size and graphic nature, Court insists the deaths never followed him home; they took no toll on his personal life.

“This has never been about me. The focus has always been on the victims and their families,” he said. “At the heart of it are still people who’ve lost somebody very close to them. They lost them under horrific circumstances and in some cases, waited 8½ years or longer, to have some type of closure. They’ve been through a lot more than any reasonable person can be expected to. I’d be hard-pressed to think of family members who have endured more.” In an interview six years ago, Court told Peace Arch News of a case that haunted him; that of a woman in her 30s who collapsed and died at home alone. He was never able to determine – to tell her family – why she died. Such cases don’t happen often, but the Pickton investigation has left Court with yet another unsolved death: that of a woman whose skull was found in Mission in 1995, years before the Pickton investigation got underway. Seven years later, DNA of two bones uncovered at the pig farm – a rib and a heel – was linked to the skull. To this day, no one knows who she was or how she died. She has yet to be reported missing. “That one will sit with me,” Court said. “All the evidence suggests she was the victim of homicide. She’s the only one we haven’t identified… In my mind, there’s no doubt she met the same fate as the others.” And like all the other women whose final days were inextricably linked to Pickton’s pig farm, Court said she, too, is worth the effort it will take to answer those questions. “Her case will remain open until we determine her identity and that will be one of my greatest challenges moving forward. “Everyone deserves to die with a name.”

Clearance rate misrepresents level of success: police

Stats Can crime numbers ‘don’t add up’ Dan Ferguson Black Press

New figures that show Surrey RCMP doesn’t solve as many crimes as other law enforcement agencies don’t tell the whole story, representatives say. Statistics Canada reports the police clearance rate for Surrey is 20.1 per cent cent, well below the Canadian average of 38.4 per cent. A police file is considered cleared when a charge is laid, a case is ruled unfounded or a decision is made to lay no charge. The numbers were generated according to a Statistics Canada formula that adjusts the clearance rate to give more weight to serious crimes. Critics of the new approach have com-

plained it penalizes communities with fewer serious crimes, giving them artificially lower clearance rates because the crimes they solve are not considered as important. RCMP Insp. Garry Begg said the clearance statistics don’t allow for the different nature of a city like Surrey, a rapidly growing community with a younger-than-average population that is far more mobile than other cities, a description that applies to both lawabiding residents and criminals. The good news, Begg said, are other figures that show a consistent improvement in every category of policing in Surrey. “Crime is the lowest it’s been in 10 years,” he said. “It’s declined every year since 2003.”

All major B.C. cities had clearance rates well below the national average. In cities of 50,000 and up, Nanaimo is highest at 37.5 per cent. Chilliwack has the lowest weighted clearance rate at 18.5 per cent. Statistics Canada has also released new crime rate figures. Like the clearance rate, they’ve been adjusted based on the type of the offences. The “Crime Severity Index” for B.C. cities over 50,000 shows that Surrey has the fourth-highest crime rate in the province after first-place Prince George, second-place Kelowna and third-place Victoria. Delta – with a clearance rate of 24.5 per cent – has the fourth-lowest crime rate among the

19 cities in that category, and Saanich had the lowest crime rate of them all. DPD Sgt. Sharlene Brooks said the Statistics Canada approach to police clearance rates can skew the numbers for a community with relatively few homicides and other heavily weighted crime categories combined with a no-call-too-small policy. Brooks noted that in B.C., unlike other provinces, Crown prosecutors – not police – decide whether to lay charges, something that affects how cases get cleared. Figures for per capita policing show Surrey and Delta have fewer officers than the national average of 203 police officers per 100,000 people – Surrey, 138; Delta, 160.

Active Living ‘on track’

Centre nears mark

The Centre for Active Living is nearing completion. White Rock city manager Peggy Clark says the $6.6-million project is on track and on budget. “It’s coming along well,” Clark said last week. “There’ll always be a few deficiencies that you note, and those will be fixed up. We wouldn’t know the deficiencies at this point in time, but they’re expected to be very minor.” The 18,000-square-foot building has been under construction in Centennial Park (14600 North Bluff Rd.) since May. It is to be an extension of Peace Arch Hospital’s cardiac rehabilitation program. The building will also house Peace Arch Curling Club’s new facilities, and offer 3,100 sq.ft. of space for lease to not-for-profit organizations that deal with wellness. While Clark noted the “cold side” of the project would be ready by this week, PACC building manager Richard Brower said the club won’t start season play until the new year. Ice was being made and lines painted last week so play could begin, said Brower. Play will get underway even though the rest of the facility – the clubhouse, viewing areas, lounge and kitchen – will

We need to get back in operation.” Curling club president Ross Scott confirmed play would begin in January – “we’re calling it ‘construction curling,’” he laughed. There’s been no curling in White Rock yet this season; the old rink was demolished in April to make

way for the new centre. Brower said that while the building was supposed to be completed mid-January, he now anticipates it won’t be done until later in the month, at the earliest. “It’s construction, so you know how these things go – it always seems to take longer than they say.” The city’s leisure programming will be offered at the site as of Jan.

24, Clark said. Fraser Health programs are expected to get underway in February. The not-for-profit space will be opening “a couple months down the road,” Clark noted. “They’re just designing the space now,” she said. Clark said the city has met its financial obligations to the project. She could not say if the other part-

ners had. Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation committed to raising $4.4 million. Foundation executive director Jackie Smith said last week she did not know how much more money was needed to meet the obligation, only that the goal has not yet been met. – Tracy Holmes, Nick Greenizan and Hannah Sutherland

Announcement comes after call for three more judges

Province adds lone judge to ease Surrey backlog Dan Ferguson Black Press

Just days after the release of a report that said the Surrey courthouse needs at least three more judges to clear a massive backlog, the B.C. government announced the appointment of one new judge, a veteran Vancouver criminal lawyer and law professor. James Donald Bahen will take his seat on the Surrey Provincial Court effective Jan. 4, 2011, Attorney General Barry Penner announced last week. Bahen, a graduate of the University of Toronto faculty of law, has 25 years experi-

ence as a criminal lawyer based in Vancouver. He has been an adjunct professor at the University of B.C.’s law faculty since 1994. The addition of Bahen will not be enough to correct a chronic backlog at the Surrey courthouse, according to a report released earlier this month by the B.C. Provincial Court that estimates a minimum of three more judges is needed. The report “Justice Delayed: A Report of the Provincial Court of British Columbia Concerning Judicial Resources” said the Surrey and Terrace courts have the worst case backlogs in B.C. with 15-month waits

for a half-day adult criminal trial, more than double the acceptable delay. Both courts have fewer judges than they did in 2005. In Surrey, the report calculated it would take three more full-time judges hearing strictly criminal trials two years to restore wait times to appropriate levels. More than one judge has publicly complained about the backlog at the Surrey courthouse, warning a lack of resources is causing delays that are forcing judges to throw out cases for infringing a person’s legal right to a timely trial. “There are not enough judges, court staff

or sheriffs in Surrey,” said Judge Peder Gulbransen in a written decision published online in November. Gulbransen said many judges have retired and have not been replaced. In June, judge Ellen Gordon estimated it takes more than twice as long to get cases to trial in Surrey than other Lower Mainland courthouses. When the provincial government closed down the Delta provincial courthouse in 2002, Delta’s 2,000 adult and youth criminal cases were added to Surrey’s 13,000. Some cases were later relocated to Richmond. - with files from Jeff Nagel

Even Santa Can’t Believe this Price....

Residents say letter scam obvious � from page 1 Cranfield said police told him there are “thousands” of such letters circulating, and to contact the newspaper if he wanted to raise awareness of the problem. “I don’t think anybody would get taken in by it, but you never know,” Cranfield said. A copy of the same letter was dropped in a Blackburn Avenue mailbox on Dec. 22. Like Talbot’s letter, it had no postmark. And Friday, Peninsula resident Al Dumont alerted Peace Arch

News to a similar letter he received last week, which also appeared to originate from Tanzania. Dumont’s letter also appeared to have bypassed the Canada Post delivery system. (Officials could not be reached for comment.) “Where this envelope came from, I have no idea,” said Dumont. Dumont’s letter, written in capital letters and in broken English, is signed by a man claiming to be the son of the former president of Liberia, whose father is being held against his will by the U.N.

Again, an investment opportunity – promising 30 per cent of the former Liberian president’s $177-million fortune, plus an extra 10 per cent in five years – is offered, if the investor helps “transfer the funds out of Africa.” “I had great fun with it, telling my kids how rich I was going to be,” laughed Dumont.

Neighbours have noticed signs for a month

� from page 1 have reported signs of a cougar in the area for about a month. Corrigan said a conservation officer promised to look at the deer carcass on Tuesday, after Peace Arch News press deadline. For Corrigan, it has been 20 years since she has set sight on a

cougar. But she knows by recent behaviour of neighbourhood pets that something is amiss. Dogs “go crazy” when they get a scent, she said. And her barn cat is staying out of sight. Corrigan is taking her own precautions, opting to walk her three dogs when it is light out and to

stay away from the wooded park that abuts her property. Ministry of Environment officials could not be reached by PAN deadline Monday. Concerns about public safety with regards to wild animal sightings may be reported to the ministry at 1-877-952-7277.

For the second year in a row, coho salmon are returning to the Little Campbell River in record numbers. “We probably had well over 4,000 fish this year – numbers we haven’t seen for several years,” Bob Oswald, of the Little Campbell Hatchery, said after he and the hatchery guardians were celebrating the run this month, watching the red-bellied salmon swim and jump their way up weirs in a volunteer-built spawning channel. “Every little pocket had fish in it.” Chinook numbers are also up – from 300 counted last year, to 800 – and all indications are it will also be a good steelhead season, Oswald noted. As with the higher-than-expected return of sockeye salmon to the Fraser River earlier this year, Oswald couldn’t pinpoint what is behind the healthier returns to the Little Campbell – aside from ongoing

A gift taken for granted

I

f we didn’t get it before, we ought to now. Semiahmoo First Nation officials have confirmed – as many suspected – that the fencing of Semiahmoo Park is about more than the safety issue of a sinkhole on the property’s east side. It now appears the Semiahmoo band intends to fence off the entire park to the general public. As band councillor Joanne Charles has commented: “People still aren’t getting the whole respect thing.” The park may have served as a recreational space for generations of local residents – and, more recently and contentiously, their dogs – but it is also the site of a historic band graveyard, and other features of archaelogical significance as well. Above all, it is Semiahmoo First Nation land, and that makes it a whole lot different than the private property many of the rest of us own. While property owners may be under the illusion they own their land absolutely, the fact is, each parcel comes under a whole series of jurisdictions and purviews, from federal restrictions to local zoning. It can be modified, restricted and expropriated. And while we can challenge such moves, that right comes with a hefty price tag in time and money. No such limits exist on First Nations lands, which are today recognized – after a checkered and unfortunate past of colonialism and ill-considered attempts to modify and eradicate entire social and cultural systems – as absolutely sovereign territory of the indigenous peoples. We may believe we can “fight city hall,” but in the case of Semiahmoo Park, there is no city hall to fight beyond the familial band whose traditional home this is. The Semiahmoo land is a figurative island between jurisdictions – including White Rock, the City of Surrey, federal land and U.S. territory – even though the band has dealt, and reached accommodation, with each of them over the years. Those who have taken the gift of free access for granted all these years have no recourse, and not much sympathy from those who understand the underlying issues. The sad case of Semiahmoo Park is, in essence, a human variation of ecological dramas that are playing out across our planet. In our ignorance and lack of humility, we have squandered many such gifts; polluted and destroyed that we should have nurtured and respected; abused what is now denied to us. Some may resent the current actions of the Semiahmoo First Nation, but we should reflect that, in their stewardship of the land, they have a far gentler lesson for us than harsh, irrevocable punishments Mother Nature may yet have in store for us if we don’t change our ways.

In a year and a half it has yet to meet. Committees that do meet are controlled by a government majority. Opposition MLAs ask only negative questions, turning the committee into the same kind of Punch-and-Judy show one sees in question period. It’s all about scoring partisan points, not solving problems. Why would the public take it seriously? Simpson has been pleasantly surprised about his sudden transition to independent MLA. The rules allow him two staffers at the legislature, instead of a share of opposition resources that mainly serve the leader’s priorities. Now when he takes a constituency problem to a cabinet minister, he is no longer viewed as a member of the enemy camp that is trying to unseat the government. They can actually talk about solutions. Lekstrom has been sitting in on a series of meetings with BC Liberal leadership hopefuls over the problems of the Agricultural Land Reserve in the Peace country. In short, the ALR makes no sense up there and is actually pushing people out of farming. As an independent, Lekstrom can work on that without worrying about an uninformed backlash from the populous south. Bennett, like Lekstrom, occupies a constituency on the Alberta border with an independent streak as wide as the main street. Both are seen as heroes at home, and if they ran as independents in 2013 they would probably do better without the party baggage.

They’re leading us backwards Editor: Re: Surrey must live within its means, Dec. 17 letters. I would like to see you post that same headline in your paper for some time to come. I fully agree with letter-writers Chris Hodgson and David Sparks. Moreover, our councillors are supposed to lead – but by borrowing huge sums of money at this time of financial/economic uncertainty, they are leading in the wrong direction. How can we set a proper example for our youth and coming generations with this kind of indulgence – and all at the expense of already-overburdened taxpayers? Surrey council, with exception of Couns. Marvin Hunt and Bob Bose, should give their collective heads a shake. How about providing the lead in the head-shaking process, Madam Mayor, and laying a solid foundation for a real and lasting legacy? G.M. O’Keefe, Surrey

minutes and check his lungs. The assistant said ‘no.’ When I asked why, she stared me down for like 10-15 seconds in dead silence, making me feel she wanted to punch me out. She then said they want to go home, too, and she motioned toward the door. She spent at least eight to 10 minutes trying to get rid of us. I felt very upset because of her inhuman reaction. My son was coughing continuously and looked very frightened of this woman. My husband and I are a hardworking couple and are permanent residents of this country. My son doesn’t have a CareCard yet, since he was born outside the country and the sponsorship case is not processed yet. As a worried mother who cannot afford to go to the hospital emergency and pay the private fee – over $ 1,000 for one visit – I felt very frustrated. There was no solidarity. The doctor who was walking around in the back and obviously saw us – was very ignorant of what was happening in the waiting room. Finally, the assistant went and whispered to the doctor for a couple

of minutes – again, enough time to examine my little one who was feeling even worse seeing this whole incident – then she came back to us with a victorious smile on her face saying “Sorry, you’ll have to come back in the morning!’ There was no sympathy, no kind words, no understanding. There was only an empty medical clinic with a doctor and her impatient, unhelpful staff, and a coughing little boy who didn’t get examined. Why? Sylvia Miklos, Surrey

Questions over future of park Editor: Re: Semiahmoo First Nation fences off park, Dec. 17. What is the Semiahmoo First Nation up to? Fences have gone up around the East Beach park area of the Semiahmoo First Nation land. Signs have been posted: “No dogs allowed in park.” The band is saying a

sinkhole in the area is growing, thus causing their action and concern for everyone’s safety. But is this really the truth? Nobody I know has seen this sinkhole. We know that the band has been testing the water table in the main field over the past year. And apparently there is a buried garbage dump left over from the days of the sawmill that used to operate on the river beside the ball fields. This area is supposedly going to be excavated. There have been statements made by the band suggesting they may be changing the zoning for the park area. So why would the band be spending so much money on water testing, excavation, and fences? And why are they wanting to change the zoning of that land? My guess is the land is about to be developed and in a big way that will change the look of White Rock and Semiahmoo Bay. Are we going to see a casino or a resort or highrises being built there? Am I concerned about this ? You bet I am. Perhaps Semiahmoo First Nation band council would like to let us all know what their plans are? P. Rogers, White Rock

Get the trains here on time Editor: Re: Benefits to train travel, Dec. 17 letters. I echo Coun. Grant Meyer’s letter. I, too, wish the Amtrak would stop in White Rock. It seems to me this is a no-brainer and everyone is on board except the feds. I suggest to Meyer that he bang on the door of our back-bencher MP and remind him to start calling on his political betters’ doors to get some movement.

No help for a sick child Editor: I had a horrible experience at a South Surrey medical clinic earlier this month. My son started to have a very bad cough, so I decided to take him to the clinic. We’ve been at this place before. The staff and doctors seemed professional and friendly at our previous visits. This time, when we walked in – even though the door was still open – the assistant basically tried to get rid of us right away. She told me they stopped taking patients at 3:30 p.m. and the rooms back there are full of people. It was obvious they weren’t. Her colleague was already switching the lights off in the back and the clinic’s parking lot was empty. “I don’t even know how you got in,” she said. “The door wasn’t supposed to be open!” I politely asked her to ask the doctor if she could just take a look at my six-year-old son for two

Some animals attack for a reason

Editor: Re: Coverage whips up canine bigotry, Dec. 10 letters. I confess! Yes, I am a “canine bigot.” But at the same time, I am the most ardent dog lover between Prince George and Patagonia… I’m in the top three anyway. And without a qualm, without a millisecond of hesitation I say: rid society of pit bulls. Their defenders say it is not the breed, it is the owner; and that pit bulls make loving family pets. Balderdash! There are just too many stories of these loving pets turning on their families. Children have been killed. Recall the story of the woman driving with the loving family pet pit bull in the passenger’s seat. Without any provocation the pit bull attacked. The woman managed to stop the car and fight him off, pushing him out of the passenger door. Immediately she was overcome with remorse at putting the family pet out into traffic, so she opened the door. The dog attacked her again. Yes, it is the breed. Pit bulls somewhere have a “screw loose,” a mangled gene. They are like a particular model of car that unexpectedly loses traction on a curve and flips. There are hundreds of other cars to choose from and hundreds of other dog breeds. This one should be eradicated. David Poole, Surrey

Throw-away society

There has been so much negative press of late, re “dogs gone bad,” consider the following conditions that

may relate to the reasons for these attacks: How many apartment dwellers own a large dog who spends all day in a kennel or chained while its owner works and then is taken for hopefully an hour’s walk before being contained again for the night? In your absence, do you provide your dog with adequate fresh food water and shelter? Can it reach either? Now switch roles… wouldn’t you become frustrated, wouldn’t you lash out at just about anything, if you weren’t treated as one of the pack? We are not only a throw-away society – pet a problem; get rid of it! – but there are pet owners who ignore the physical and mental well-being of the animals in their keep. These are the ones you read about. There are also many pet owners who treat their animals like family members, taking care of their everyday needs, including vet visits and socialization time with their peers. If you are not looking after the needs of your dog, perhaps it’s time to do some soul-searching into why you own an animal and who is benefiting from this ownership – you or the animal? I, for one, would like to read some “good dog” tales about those breeds that are labelled “bad dogs.” Many have been destroyed by the horrific actions of a few. Yet many lives have been saved by those same abused dogs. What’s your story? Dee Walmsley, Surrey

Racetrack adds new lane Jennifer Lang Black Press

Plans are underway to create a new inside passing lane for harness racing at Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino. Proponents say it will make horse races more exciting to watch and bet on. A passing lane allows horses that are blocked in an opportunity to break out from behind the leaders during the final stretch. “It’s an issue our horsemen have been supporting and we’re going forward with a plan,” director of racing Jackson Wittup said. “It would give more horses a shot at winning.” It’s a return to form for the historic harness-racing facility, which originally opened as a half-mile track under the name Cloverdale Raceway. When the racetrack expanded

An inside passing lane is on its way to Fraser Downs Racetrack. to a five-eighths of a mile oval in 1996, it lost the passing lane, Dan Jukich, simulcast director at Fraser Downs, said. The plan is to have the new, inside passing lane in place for the Jan. 7 races – the start of the 2011 schedule. “The horsemen wanted it, and we’re going to put it in,” he said. A designated pylon is set up at the start of the stretch, indicating

the beginning of the inside passing lane. Nobody can go inside until the final lap, and there are strict rules drivers must follow. When the inside lane is in place, horses will be able to move to the inside lane and have a better opportunity to win. “It’s going to make the races more exciting. There will be a better finish,” Jukich said. “Now, when they get boxed in they’ve got no place to go.” The passing lane will be in place in time for the Western Regional Driving Championships Saturday, Feb. 26 at Fraser Downs. The regionals are expected to draw drivers and horses from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. and decide which two winners go onto the nationals at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino in Charlottetown, PEI, on May 7.

Surrey family brings Christmas to poverty-stricken Haitian children

Holidays for Haiti Hannah Sutherland

T

Staff Reporter

he Augustes didn’t have any presents under their tree last week. In fact, they didn’t have a tree at all. But unlike some who forgo Christmas comforts due to economic circumstances, the Surrey family’s sacrifices were being made by choice. Ruth Auguste said although she and husband Garry were celebrating the season with their three children, it would have been difficult to enjoy holiday luxuries while thinking of people suffering in the couple’s home country. “I always tell (our children) we have two homes,” she said. “Haiti is our first home and Canada is our second home, so when we think about Haiti and the need right now, the suffering, ❝We have we cannot be happy and having fun.” more than The Auguste children – who are 16, 13 and 10 years old – offered to three kids now – we have donate their presents to the povertystricken country, where Garry spent thousands of Christmas, handing out meals and them.❞ gifts to street kids. “People are dying there and Ruth Auguste kids are suffering, and, once upon a time, I was one of them, so I’m doing everything I can to support them.” Ruth said. “I have been a victim of a lot of things happening over there right now. I know what they’re going through, I know what the kids are feeling.” At 15 years old, Ruth and her three siblings were taken in by their elderly grandparents after their mother died. Living in poverty, there were times they couldn’t eat. “At Christmas there wasn’t any presents because they couldn’t afford to buy us anything,” she said, noting there are children still struggling in Haiti. “It’s a lost childhood and I know what those kids are suffering... I want to be there for them. “I think we have more than three kids now – we have thousands of them.” Ruth, who has lived in B.C. for 20 years, and Garry, who joined her in Surrey from Haiti 13 years ago, formed the non-profit Micheline Network Society (MNS) in 2009 to give back to the country they left. “We know Haiti and we’ve been in Haiti. We are very close to the people who have needs,” said Garry, who was a police officer when living there. “I’m used to working with the people in Haiti. I know how things are.” The two were still in the planning stages of their charity work when the 7.0-magnitude earthquake hit Jan. 12. Suddenly, there was a greater urgency for their services. “Before the quake, we had kids begging on the streets, kids cleaning windows to feed themselves – we’ve seen those things before the earthquake. We wanted to be the solution to that, but when January came, (there was) not only those kids, you had kids who lost parents,” Garry said. “When Jan. 12 came, we ended up moving toward supporting those victims, and because of the quake, we have way more kids living on the street.”

Garry and Ruth – who lost eight family members between them in the disaster – joined forces with other organizations to ship a container to Haiti filled with donated goods, which they helped distribute in September. For Garry, travelling to Haiti three times since the quake has allowed him to learn firsthand what Haitians’ most desperate needs are. Based on those needs, the MNS is focusing on three projects: a feeding program in the neighbourhood of Bel Air; the construction of a medical centre in Croix-des-Bouquets;

and a facility in Leogane – located at the epicenter of the quake – that provides school, shelter, medical attention and a cafeteria for 450 children. “We’re trying to be that person, be that organization, that will be there, right there for them when they need it, until their lives get better,” Garry said. The family has made more than just Christmastime sacrifices to further the causes. The Augustes downsized from their home in South Surrey to a Newton house less than half the size, and, before moving, raised more than $4,500 in a garage sale last August. The funds were used to send 110 Haitian children to school this past October, with leftover money going towards the land that will house the Croix-des-Bouquets medical centre. “We lived in a nice size house. I’m working and (Ruth’s) working, and when you have a lot of payments to make, it really impaired (our ability) to move forward with this mission. We will not stop until we probably � see page 12

What we receive, we take to Haiti and provide to the needy people.” The next goal of the society was to bring Christmas to Haiti’s poor streets. Garry left for the country Dec. 21 for an eight-day trip to give out holiday meals and gifts to children. Garry hoped to reach 2,000 kids by driving to various locations and making an announcement over the radio. “If we can go there and give them a meal and give the children something to play with, that will make a big difference,” Ruth said. The society is looking to raise $20,000 for the initiative, and planned to continue the meal component after

NEW YEAR’S Y A EVE YEAR

lifestyles

Taking the plunge For 40 years, a brave group of swimmers has flocked to White Rock Beach to start the new year with a dunk in the frigid waters of Semiahmoo Bay, and this Jan. 1 will likely be no exception. The Peace Arch Monarch Lions invite the public to the shore next to the white rock for the 41st annual Polar Bear Swim at noon on New Year’s Day. Registration is free and begins at 10:30 a.m. The Lions accept donations, which benefit St. John Ambulance and Semiahmoo Peninsula Marine Group. Organizer Don Miller said 415 registrants came out last year. “Some people will turn out religiously for a number of years and then give it up for a while, and their kids will carry it on,” he said, noting ages have ranged from one to 86. “We see a lot of the same faces each year.” For those not interested in taking part, the event is still entertaining to watch. “We generally get a fairly good crowd down

there in the way of spectators,” Miller said. “We’ve had as many as a couple thousand over the years line the pier and the promenade.” - Hannah Sutherland

Don’t let the cold keep you inside this winter .................................... For some of us, the months of January, February, and March are synonymous with a feeling of sadness and a lack of energy. A certain greyness seems to settle over life and the long, dark days of winter leave us feeling down. This is commonly known as the winter blues, or seasonal affective disorder. The winter blues don’t stop you from carrying on with your regular activities, but they colour your mood and energy levels. Some of the symptoms include sadness, listlessness, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, lack of interest, irritability, and sugar cravings. One way to combat feelings of depression is to spend more time doing outdoor activities. So get lively — there are so many things to do out there! Here are a few ways to energize yourself and have fun at the same time. GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY The best way to combat seasonal affective disorder is to spend more time outside, as lack of sunlight influences your metabolism as well as your mood. Your body needs its daily dose of light or else it has a tendency to switch to “sleep” mode. When you’re outside, take deep breaths of fresh air in order to oxygenate your body. Exercising on a regular basis is a great antidepressant and it also allows the body to produce more endorphins, often referred to as the hormone of happiness and well-being. A THOUSAND THINGS TO DO THIS WINTER There’s nothing wrong with being a couch potato once in a while, but if you never put your nose outside once the first snowflake has appeared, it’s time to get outside. If you like sports, winter is a fantastic time of year. Think about skiing, snowshoeing, snowboarding, and tobogganing. Walking is a refreshing way to experience winter, and of course it is accessible to nearly everyone. You can also be more active indoors by going bowling or dancing with friends, indoor rock climbing, or swimming. You might take a yoga or karate class or join a spinning class at a gym. The possibilities are endless. If you prefer to exercise your brain more than your body, how about an outing to the bookstore or the library? Or try learning a new language, taking cooking classes, or visiting a museum. LIGHT IS ALL IMPORTANT If you still can’t shake the winter blues, you can always try light therapy. This is a technology that simulates natural light and contributes to reducing winter depression. The treatment consists of 30 minutes of daily exposure per day under a lamp with a high light intensity. Talk to your doctor about it.

The road to good health Protect yourself Retiree sheds 57 pounds with help of local weight loss program

W

hile Carole Hjorth wouldn’t describe herself as having been a thin woman, she never had a problem keeping her weight in check. But soon after retiring, the number on the scale began to creep up until her clothes no longer fit and her health began to deteriorate. “I didn’t realize that every year I was gaining around 15 to 20 pounds,â€? said the White Rock resident, who was given an â??You just wake-up have to want abrupt call one morning it and have to when she go for it.â?ž stepped on her Carole Hjorth doctor’s scale. “I was 218 pounds, which is a lot of weight for a 75 year old to be carrying around. My heart rate and blood pressure went way up so I had to use a pacemaker.â€? Hjorth’s doctor recommended she give the Surrey SureSlim Wellness Clinic a try to help her shed the excess pounds. “I was a little skeptical at first because I had tried other weightloss programs and they didn’t seem to work,â€? said Hjorth who decided she had a lot to lose and plenty to gain.

Brian Giebelhaus photo

Carole Hjorth has lost 57 pounds with the help of SureSlim.

SureSlim’s weight-loss program works by creating a customized plan for each client, using their own metabolism to help them lose weight safely and rapidly. It’s medically based and doctor supervised, which means not having to deal with pills, injections, pre-packaged foods or surgery. “It took about two weeks to get used to the lifestyle change, but I

didn’t go hungry or have to waste time calculating calories,â€? said Hjorth, who has lost 57 pounds since starting the program last June. In addition to getting her health back on track, Hjorth said she has never looked or felt better, especially when wearing her favourite pair of blue jeans. “It was wonderful, I couldn’t believe it,â€? said Hjorth who went from a size 16 to 12. “I hadn’t worn jeans in 30 years‌ It gave me such a great feeling of accomplishment that I’ve kept on with it and will continue to do so.â€? While Hjorth admits there has been temptations a long the way, she doesn’t feel deprived. “The first two weeks were difficult as it’s a completely different way of eating,â€? she said. “Once you lose weight, you find you really don’t want to eat the other way, but I still do enjoy a glass of wine or treat on occasion.â€? For anyone else who has a little or lot of weight to lose, Hjorth recommends going to SureSlim route. “You just have to want it and have to go after it. It worked for me – I’m living proof that it works.

in colder weather Extreme temperature changes can be dangerous to the senior set. This can make winter weather as challenging as the summertime heat, as winter also throws ice and snow into the mix, which can make getting around treacherous. Here are some safety precautions to take whether seniors are venturing outdoors or simply winterproofing their homes.

Around the House:

• Keep the thermostat set to at least 65 F (19 C) to prevent hypothermia. Do not use the oven to provide heat in the house. If it is difficult to afford heating oil, propane or natural gas, find out if there is a senior program in your area. • Inexpensive plastic sheeting can provide extra draft protection on windows. • Purchase carbon monoxide detectors to signal whether there is dangerous carbon monoxide present at the first instant. • If possible, pay a service or neighbour to shovel snow or plow the driveway. If you

are forced to shovel, take frequent breaks. • Make sure railings at entryways are in good working order and there is adequate lighting to ease with entering and exiting the home. • Keep walkways salted to prevent ice buildup. • Consider using delivery services or shopping online to reduce the number of trips that have to be made in inclement weather. You can even shop for groceries via the computer. • Keep a bench next to the door. This way you can remove your shoes upon entering and eliminate slippery puddles.

Outdoors:

• Frostbite and hypothermia are two of the biggest dangers seniors face. Always dress in layers to leave some leeway for fluctuating temperatures. Most susceptible body parts are fingers, toes, ear lobes, and the nose. Symptoms of frostbite include numbness and a white cast to the skin in the affected area.

The metallic prints, laminated and floatmounted on aluminum, include images titled Lake Superior (benefiting the National Health Federation of Canada), Salmon Slough (Birds On The Bay), Semiahmoo Bay (White Rock South Surrey Community Foundation), Avatar Den (Farmland Defense League), Avatar Grove (Vancouver Island Forest Action Network) and Boundary Bay (Burns Bog Conservation Society).

Artists say it’s a rewarding, but continuous process of learning representational skills, and while members have come and gone over the years, the three-year waiting list to become a member attests to the seriousness with which they approach this opportunity for study. Opening reception is Jan. 6 from 7 to 9 p.m. with artists in attendance. The gallery is open Tuesday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Big names set for Scotties Rick Kupchuk Black Press

More than half the field for the B.C. Scotties women’s provincial curling championship has been determined, including three rinks which competed at last year’s tournament in Penticton, two of which didn’t need to compete at a qualifying event this season. Kelly Scott has automatically qualified as the defending champion. The Kelowna curler defeated 2002 Olympic bronze medalist Kelley Law 8-4 in last year’s championship game. Scott went on to place fourth at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts national championship, an event she won in 2006 and 2007. Also playing for Team Scott is third Jeanna Schraeder, second Sasha Carter and lead Jacquie Armstrong. Law, from the Royal City Curling Club in New Westminster, qualified by leading the province in the Canadian Team Ranking System (CTRS) over the previous 12 months as of Dec. 1, 2010. Law will be joined by teammates Jody Maskiewich, Shannon Aleksic and Kristen Recksiedler at the B.C. Scotties Jan. 17-23 at the Cloverdale Curling Club. “It’s nice to get a couple of big names qualified early, it helps with ticket sales and increasing the excitement for the event,” said Sherry Russell, chair of the host committee. “Both are terrific curlers, all the curlers who will be here are good, but those two have been here before.” Four other curlers qualified at playdown events earlier this month. Jen Fewster of Prince George skipped her team to a the third place finish in Penticton a year ago, and will curl again at

White Rock South Surrey BASEBALL ASSOCIATION To: parents of children with cognitive or physical disabilities

The Challenger Baseball program is coming to WRSSBA for the 2011 season! “Challenger Baseball” is the baseball division that provides the opportunity for children with cognitive or physical disabilities to enjoy the benefits of playing the fun sport of baseball. Games will be played locally on Saturday mornings, and run from early April until mid June. The season culminates with an exciting Provincial Challenger Jamboree, where all the participating programs in BC get together for a fun day. This year’s Jamboree will be held in the Lower Mainland. The philosophy of Challenger Baseball is very simple: “Have fun playing baseball, in a safe environment that caters to the very special needs of children with cognitive or physical disabilities”. The fun and safety is enhanced by going in to the community to find teenagers and young adults to act as “Buddies” to these players. Buddies push wheelchairs or lead players around the base paths, provide a mentoring role to their player, and, most importantly, provide the safety component for the players during games. By having Buddies “one on one” with each player, parents can now relax, enjoy the game, and get a well deserved “respite” hour.

WRSSBA Registration: Date: Saturday January 15th & 29th Time: 1:00 – 4:00pm Location: WRSSBA Training Centre 14600 20th Ave. For further information, feel free to contact: Paige McLean – Challenger Coordinator Email: paige.madison@hotmail.com Scott Macdonald – WRSSBA President Email: president@wrssba.com

Midget Hawks flying high Jordan Klimek, Austin Vetterl of Surrey and Langley’s Trevor Cox completed the scoring. Steve Myland of Cloverdale was in the Hawks goal for both wins, turning aside 31 of 33 shots.

Rick Kupchuk Black Press

Having finished one position out of the playoffs in each of the past three seasons, the Valley West Hawks set a goal this year of qualifying for the postseason. Two-thirds of the way through the current B.C. Major Midget League (MML) season, the Hawks are not only on track to hit that target, they might just finish atop the 11-team league. Regardless, this season will go down as the best in the short seven-year history of the team. Through 26 games, the group of 15-17 year-olds are riding an unprecedented 11-game win streak into the Christmas break. They sit second in the MML, just two points back of the defending champion Vancouver Giants. And next week, they will be in Calgary for the Mac’s Tournament, a 33-year-old event that invites the best Midget hockey teams from Western Canada for a 25-team competition. More importantly, the Hawks lead the seventh-place Okanagan Rockets by 17 points. Six teams qualify for the playoffs in the MML, a league in which the 11 teams are from designated zones. The Hawks are the Vancouver South West zone team, with players drawn from the Surrey, Cloverdale, Semiahmoo and Langley minor hockey associations. After winning the first four games of the season, and outscoring the opposition 22-2, the Hawks slumped through the month of October, going 2-4-4 (won-lost-tied). They turned it around after their bye week, tying their first game back against the Greater Vancouver Canadians, then reeling off 11 consecutive victories while conceding just 11 goals. Last weekend, the Hawks travelled to Prince George for two games with the Cariboo Cougars, a team with which they were tied for second place. Neither game proved to be much of a contest. James Neil of Surrey tallied twice in the first 14 minutes of play Saturday evening,
