New hours frustrate

School crunch Sheila Reynolds Black Press

At least two Surrey high schools will have extended hours this fall, as part of efforts to deal with ongoing space shortfalls. South Surrey’s Earl Marriott Secondary (EMS) and Cloverdale’s Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary (LTS) will be adopting an alternate schedule beginning this September to address cramped conditions. The concept is being adopted in an effort to ensure students can actually get into their neighbourhood schools and are able to access the courses and programs they need. Like many schools in the district, EMS and LTS are significantly over capacity and have ❝This is the multiple product of portable nobody paying classrooms attention on site to to a rapidly handle student growing overflow. With district.❞ no new school space on the Laurae McNally horizon, and school board chair more residents arriving each month, the schools have opted to extend the school day to accommodate a greater number of students. Although schedule details at the two schools have yet to be ironed out, a newsletter says the amount of instructional time for students will remain the same. But the plan is to have the Grade 8 and 9 students start and end the school day at a different time than the Grade 10-12 students and likely have different lunch breaks. Specific start and end times for the school day haven’t been set, but it’s anticipated the schedule will fall somewhere between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. daily.  see page 4

news Watts’ coalition now includes eight of nine council members

Hunt accepts mayor’s Surrey First invite Tracy Holmes & Kevin Diakiw Staff Reporter / Black Press

Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts’ majority slate on council has added Coun. Marvin Hunt to its fold. Hunt confirmed Monday morning that he will be joining Watts’ Surrey First coalition – leaving Bob Bose as the sole council member not a part of Surrey First. “You (are) the first one that I’ve talked to about it,” Hunt told Black Press. “The answer is yes.” Hunt says he made the decision about two weeks ago, and characterizes it as formalizing the working relationship that already exists with his friends. He said it’s much like the former ruling party, the Surrey Electors Team (SET), except for the presence of left-leaning councillors such as Judy Villeneuve and Bar-

inder Rasode, who have been able to voice their opinions freely. Watts had confirmed Friday that she’d had “conversations” with the longtime Surrey councillor regarding joining her coalition. Watts would not, however, say if Hunt had accepted the offer, noting Hunt himself should be part of any such announcement. “I have had those conversations with him. At this point, he needs to be present in the conversation,” she said. “Yes, the invitation has been extended.” Fellow Coun. Linda Hepner said at the time that she believed the offer was accepted, but referred questions to Watts. Bose, a member of the Surrey Civic Coalition, said Friday he had not yet heard that Hunt joined Watts’ group. But he said it wouldn’t come

as a surprise, nor would it change anything as far as what is already happening in city hall. “It secures his position as part of the inner circle,” Bose said. “Marvin votes consistently with them, he holds the same positions on development issues, rarely opposes any development, certainly seems to be in the camp that supports ‘development at any cost.’ “He’s been a defacto member of the Surrey First team since the beginning. If it’s untrue, it won’t make any difference to the balance on council, and on issue after issue. There’s one dissenting voice, and that’s mine.” Bose noted that with November’s municipal election looming, the SCC is also preparing, readying to move forward with nominations for council and school board. He,

Bob Bose SCC

too, plans to seek the SCC’s support – “if there’s any doubt about that in the minds of anybody.” “To me, it’s important that we have some other voices on council, besides the mayor’s team,” Bose said. (Last month, two of three SCC school trustees – Laurie Larsen and Terry Allen – left the slate to join free-enterprise members

of the board to form a coalition called Surrey Education First. SCC trustee Ijaz Catha was invited to join the group and declined, and board chair Laurae McNally remains an independent.) Watts said Hunt would “make an excellent addition to the (Surrey First) team.” The father of six first ran for a school board seat in 1983, then joined council in 1987 with the Surrey NPA. By 1990, he sat with SET, where he remained until the party folded in 2008, when he was elected as an independent. When Watts won the mayor’s chair in 2005, Hunt noted after a raucous inauguration meeting that her hold on council wouldn’t last. However, he said this week that he is certainly gratified with Watts’ ability to build a team on council.

Second-degree murder

Husband guilty Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Former Surrey high school teacher Mukhtiar Panghali has been found guilty of second-degree murder and interfering with a dead body in the 2006 death of his pregnant wife, who was also a teacher. New Westminster Supreme Court Justice Heather Holmes delivered the verdict Friday morning. “Mr. Panghali killed Ms. Panghali,” Holmes said. “The body of evidence establishes beyond a reasonable doubt that he did so.” Manjit Panghali, 31, was four months pregnant with her second child when she disappeared on Oct. 18, 2006. Her burned body was discovered on a South Delta shoreline next to a truck route a few days later, and her husband was charged with second-degree murder five months later. At hearing the judge’s verdict, Manjit Panghali’s family and friends gasped and sobbed in the public gallery, saying “yes” and “it’s over” and hugging one other. Outside the courthouse, her older sister, Jasmine Bhambra, said the verdict will allow the family to begin the healing process. “It’s been a long hard road that’s been painful and heartbreaking. Nobody should ever have to go through anything like this,” Bhambra said. “Although it’s been difficult for us, it doesn’t compare to the pain and horror that Manjit must have felt in her final moments – having her life taken away from her by the one person that was Manjit Panghali supposed to love and promurder victim tect her. She died a brutal and senseless death at the hands of a sick, twisted and evil monster.” While defence lawyer Michael Tammen had argued at the trial’s close in December that there was a “staggering” absence of hard evidence against his client, Crown prosecutor Dennis Murray said Mukhtiar Panghali’s behaviour after his wife’s disappearance and inconsistencies in his statements to police proved that he murdered her. The Crown said the 38-year-old Panghali,

The defence tried to minimize testimony that Panghali was the same man seen on gas station surveillance video buying a lighter and newspaper the night of his wife’s disappearance, saying the man in the video had his turban tied differently from Panghali’s. But Justice Holmes said she had “no doubt” the man in the video image was Panghali. She said she examined the store video closely, comparing it to footage of Panghali in an effort to find inconsistencies. “I could find none. The man in the convenience store footage is identical to Mr. Panghali,” she said, adding his failure to mention that he’d left the house that evening “cannot be a mere oversight.” Panghali, who did not testify, said he had not seen his wife since she left for a prenatal yoga class on the night of Oct. 18, 2006. He also said he had stayed home all night. Manjit Panghali’s car was found abandoned

near Green Timbers Park. And although she had her cellphone with her when she left for class, by the next afternoon, her husband was using the phone, with a different SIM card, and continued to use it until it was seized by police several months later. That, said the judge, showed that her husband acquired the phone when she had returned home from her yoga class and that he was the last person to see her. The defence had also argued Mukhtiar Panghali, a physics teacher at Princess Margaret Secondary, didn’t want to make a big deal about his wife’s disappearance because she had left home before. The judge agreed that would have been a plausible defence on the evening she went missing, but said it was highly unusual that she still hadn’t returned home by morning to tend to daughter Maya’s needs. Holmes said the fact that the husband had taken the precaution of getting his father to pick Maya up after preschool showed the husband knew more. “He knew that all was not well,” she said. Holmes also denied that the charge be downgraded to manslaughter, saying that

although the death by strangulation may have been brief, it was extremely forceful – worse than that of a hanging, she said. “Mr. Panghali meant to cause bodily harm… and he knew it would likely cause death.” Burning the body afterwards, the judge added, took further effort and risk. Diaries of Manjit Panghali, who was a primary teacher at Surrey’s North Ridge Elementary, were made public late last year and showed she was depressed, upset by her husband’s drinking and was trying desperately to save their marriage. Mukhtiar Panghali, his head shaved and wearing a light-coloured dress shirt, showed little emotion as the verdict was read. The victim’s sister said she wasn’t surprised by the convicted man’s lack of expression. “There’s been no remorse from him at all,” Bhambra said. “He just doesn’t care.” Delta Police Department spokesperson Sgt. Sharlene Brooks expressed relief for the victim’s family, and in particular her daughter. Mukhtiar Panghali will receive an automatic life sentence. His parole eligibility is to be determined on March 17.

School rankings released The Fraser Institute’s annual ranking of B.C.’s elementary schools was released Monday, with South Surrey’s Southridge School topping the local school list with a perfect score of 10. The Vancouver-based public policy organization annually gives B.C. schools a rating out of 10 based on results of the Minister of Education’s Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) tests of writing, reading and numeracy in Grades 4 and 7.

Seven of the highest-ranked Surrey schools are private; three public schools made the top 10 with 7.9 or higher. Local school scores dipped as low as 2.1. One Peninsula independent school, Star of the Sea, was named among 20 schools to have shown the most improvement over the past five years. Surrey’s Mountainview Montessori and Dr. F.D. Sinclair are also on the most-improved list. The B.C. Teachers’ Federation

says the Fraser Institute’s rankings are meaningless and misleading because they’re based on test scores only, ignoring the many other things happening in B.C. schools. Peter Cowley, the Fraser Institute’s director of school performance studies, argues the tests are crucial in measuring performance of individual schools and help identify trends.

Schools save by going solar Alex Browne Staff Reporter

New solar walls for two South Surrey secondary schools will save energy costs and reduce greenhouse gases – thanks to grants from the B.C. Public Sector Energy Conservation Agreement announced Monday. Semiahmoo Secondary will receive $121,414 and Elgin Park Secondary will receive $80,539 to cover the exterior south facing gymnasium walls of each school. The combined investment will save an estimated $13,369 in energy costs for the two schools and will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 49 tonnes, according to a release from the BC Liberal government caucus.

School district facilities director Lance Nordling said planning and research had identified “substantial” cost savings and greenhouse gas reductions. “We’re really looking forward to the benefits these new solar walls will provide,” he said. “Semiahmoo and Elgin Park Secondary’s forward thinking will not only reduce energy consumption, but will save funds that can

be better allocated to student services and programs,” said SurreyWhite Rock MLA Gordon Hogg. The Public Sector Energy Conservation Agreement is a partnership between the provincial government, Terasen Gas, BC Hydro, SolarBC and Natural resources Canada, providing capital funding and technical support for public sector energy proposals.

The South Surrey announcement is part of $6.6 million in capital funding provided by the partnership to 35 school district energy conservation projects across B.C. Combined energy savings for all the projects are estimated at almost $720,000, with greenhouse gas reductions of 2,755 tonnes – equivalent to taking 529 passenger vehicles off the roads.

Drivers need to abandon the myth of multi-tasking he B.C. government has a major selling job to do to get distracted drivers to put away their cellphones and stop fiddling with their GPS devices and sound systems while they’re driving. Slapping people with $167 fines hasn’t seemed to make much of an impression. Since the ban on cellphones and other hand-held devices was instituted last February, 32,000 tickets have been issued, raising $5.2 million, and people are still dying because of distracted driving. In fact, according to the RCMP, distracted driving was a factor in a third of all crashes last year. If people aren’t getting the message that distracted driving is dangerous, will pumping up the penalties make them sit up and take notice? Not necessarily. People still drive without seatbelts even though the law has been around for more than 30 years and the fines are just as hefty. Tougher drunk driving laws have made an impression, but how long will it last? The problem seems to be that once in their cars, people are oblivious to the dangers around them. Their car is their castle, their drivers’ seat is like a comfy recliner and they don’t like people telling them what to do with their personal space. Like drunk drivers who think they drive better while inebriated, most drivers think they alone can multi-task while everyone else around them are losers. They fail to understand that the brain simply cannot multi-task, and driving while talking or texting is the equivalent of driving drunk. Don’t agree? Try this test: While driving to work, try to figure out a complicated math problem at the same time. You’ll be surprised to see where you end up after you miss a turn in your normal route. The myth of multi-tasking needs to be addressed and police need an ally to get their message across. One idea would be to engage cellphone manufactures, distributors and service providers in a multi-year communication campaign warning about the dangers of distracted driving. These companies have made millions promoting the idea of anytime, anywhere communications, why shouldn’t they use some of those profits to promote safe driving? Will drivers give up their in-car technology? Probably not, but at least they will know better.

Christian of some sort. But is this a Christian city? Should the separation of church and state that exists in many legislatures around the western world include the affairs at 511 Royal Ave.? Should prayer be kept where many people feel it belongs – in a church, or the home, car and heart of a Christian? Or should a flaky alternative be found? Say, a prayer that rotates among a list of the city’s top four religions? Some would say the prayer is simply a tradition, reflecting the early Christian heritage of our city’s European founders. If that’s the goal, then we should follow the lead of the Township of Langley, which often includes a First Nations ceremony. I doubt we’ll hear anyone on city council suggest scrapping the prayer anytime soon. Might as well suggest cutting the police budget. In 2008, Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty floated the idea of cutting the prayer, and the province’s server had to be shut down due to the flood of angry emails. To their defence, prayers are powerful things. At city functions, they add a certain weight of ritual and tradition that would be difficult to replace. The inauguration of a city council, for instance, should have a note of solemnity. Politicians are being sworn in to serve an important role, as representatives of the people and keepers of public trust. And they are also expected to be bold, and advance important issues even if it may cause them some discomfort. Amen to that. Chris Bryan is editor of the BurnabyNew Westminster News-Leader.

letters Peace Arch News

Unforgettable health care Open letter to Peace Arch Hospital. I recently had the terrifying, and yet invigorating, experience of spending two weeks as a patient surviving and healing through an acute infection under the roof of the Peace Arch Hospital. I was touched and am eternally grateful for the incredible care and attention I received while under your thoroughly professional, and consistently compassionate care. Each individual I encountered, from the emergency room doctors and nurses to everyone else on staff – the attending physician, the floor nurses, the lab technicians, the custodial staff, the dietitians, the physiotherapists, the CT scan doctors and nurses, the pharmacists, the kitchen staff, the X-ray technicians… Holy moly, what a crew. Ever single person treated me with sensitivity and care and a genuine empathy and compassion. This was, for me, unexpected in a world where everyone is a critic, and you guys get way more than your share of the flak. I salute you all. You gave me the tools and the care I needed to heal and return to the world a whole person able to resume a normal life. I want to emphasize here how all of you acted together as a team with a common goal – the health and well-being of the patient. You are a dedicated bunch of professionals making modern medicine work for your community. This, I feel, is a complex and overwhelming task even at the best of times. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for helping me postpone my inevitable appointment with the pine box, and allowing me to breathe the fresh air of White Rock again. I will never forget any of you. Glenn Miles, Surrey

Police contract a money matter Editor: The furor and fuss about RCMP misdeeds is akin to tilting at windmills. The RCMP is a federal entity and is not accountable to the Province of B.C. Period. Their authority lies in Ottawa and the head of the RCMP is essentially a member of government, answerable only to Parliament. Calls for the province to not renew the current RCMP contract for another 20 years is a non-starter. The renewal is pretty much a done deal and for a very good reason. Money. There may be promises made to placate the masses but they are unenforceable. We had a BC Provincial Police force, with towns subcontracting their services, until Aug. 15, 1950, when it was disbanded without explanation and policing duties turned over to the RCMP. Municipalities ranted and raved in protest, but just like the current

imposition of the HST –without discussion or warning – it was done. The reason draws another parallel with the HST. Ottawa bribed the province. For eliminating the BCPP, Ottawa offered to pay 30 percent of the cost of policing. Rent-a-cop is cheaper than having your own force. Shopping malls rent security staff for the same reason. The only difference is the malls can choose from a variety of providers, whereas the province has one choice. Public trust in the RCMP came before the invention of the video camera. Until then, it was assumed the civilian was always wrong and the RCMP always spoke the truth. Current events prove otherwise. Miscreant RCMP are rarely fired and never jailed, so one can assume they are quietly transferred to another town. How many of these bad apples have been sent to Surrey and White Rock from other jurisdictions? The RCMP do not have to tell you. For the majority of fine RCMP that really care about the people they

serve and try to protect, I admire their dedication and tenacity. I’m sure it wavers sometimes, but then it’s hard to soar like an eagle when you’re led by turkeys. J. Edwards, Surrey

A chance to say thanks Editor: Last Wednesday, I ran out of gas at the busy intersection of 32 Avenue and 144 Street. I called BCAA, turned on my hazard lights and sat tight until help arrived. After a few moments, it became apparent other drivers were confused why a van at a stop sign wasn’t moving – despite the hazards. I was on the receiving end of a few honks and rude gestures until I got out of my van. Once I emerged, it became more obvious to others I was having car trouble. Within 10 minutes,

no fewer than a half-dozen drivers stopped to ask if I needed help. A couple of years ago, my tire blew out in the George Massey Tunnel. All four of my children were in the van. I was so beside myself, I didn’t properly thank those who pulled over to help. I didn’t want to miss this chance to thank all those who helped me Wednesday. To: the lady from the house around the corner who came over to see if she could get me a gas can; the RCMP officer who pulled over to make sure I was OK, and to advise me and my daughter not to wait inside the van in case we were rearended; the kind gentleman and teenage son who had the good minds to roll my van over to the side of the road; and the BCAA driver who showed up within the promised 15 minutes… you all made my day. I hope you receive your generous gestures back two-fold. To those irate and impatient drivers: I suggest angermanagement training. Kim Dudra, Surrey

Timing of hall transition under fire Editor: Re: Frustrations over new fire hall transition, Feb. 2. I would like to respond to deputy fire Chief Jon Caviglia’s comments about the new Surrey Hall 14. So the chief believes there are a “few” disgruntled volunteers. What are a few? Out of the 15 that were on staff, how many were not disgruntled? Out of the 15, how many will be back to the hall? When asked about Rescue 6 being taken out of service in the north end, Caviglia said it was “the least-used of the rescue trucks” so it would not be a problem. The “least-used” rescue truck still did 800 calls and was only in service for a portion of the year. Hall 14 with the volunteer crew only did 400. A career crew was not ready to occupy the hall when it was completed. The hiring cycle has not yet been completed. The crew for this hall was to come into service in April/May. The only reason that a career crew became available is because of concessions offered by the union. They agree to the extraordinary measure of delaying their vacation time for several months. If it was so important that the area be served by a career crew, why did the union and administration not come to this agreement sooner? The agreement was reached conveniently at the time of completion. Coincidence? I don’t think so. The reason was because the temporary fire hall and its deplorable conditions would not have met the union’s requirements to work out of. The real reason we believe is that the union considered it a moral outrage that these scab volunteers would contaminate their

new pristine hall, and the fire administration didn’t like the optics of having the latest fire hall occupied so infrequently. If a career crew is there, it looks like taxpayers are getting value for their money. The volunteers that were at Hall 14 did an incredible job, one that received little recognition or respect from Hall 1 administration. The last week, we still responded to calls up till the very end. We can be proud of the service that we performed for the community. Talk to the volunteer members of Hall 14. They can tell you all the background behind this new hall. J. Franke, Surrey Q Having read your article, I was surprised at the statements by Chief Jon Caviglia. I am a 27-year veteran at Hall 14 and am also OK with stepping aside for better service to my community. What Caviglia stated about a crew being available because of the construction delays is completely false. He stated to the paid-on-call firefighters that the career firefighters agreed to defer their holidays at the beginning of this year until the next recruits are hired and that in the meantime, an engine from the north end of Surrey would be out of service so that they could staff Hall 14. The real news story is that an engine from a busier part of the city is out of service to cover an area that Caviglia stated already had great service. I would be interested to see how this qualifies as “providing a better service.” Richard Newcombe, Surrey

Allocation of reserve funds debated in White Rock

$50,000 for art ‘doesn’t quite fit’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Public art is as important to White Rock’s revitalization and economic development as anything else, and funding to support it deserves inclusion in the city’s upcoming budget. Coun. Lynne Sinclair made the statement during last month’s Finance and Audit Committee meeting, after learning a $50,000 reserve fund for public art was not incorporated into the city’s draft operating budget. Council voted last year to provide the funding subject to the budget, Sinclair said, and it is a worthwhile investment. “I feel that this is an idea whose time has come. We’re behind other cities,” she said. But while Sinclair made a motion to add the reserve into the budget – a move that would bump the city’s proposed 3.91 per cent property tax increase to 4.21 per cent – her fellow councillors rejected the notion at their Jan. 24 meeting. Coun. Doug McLean said he is opposed to increasing taxes when money for such projects is available as a result of recent development projects, including Bosa’s Miramar Village and Epta’s Avra. Financial director Sandra Kurylo explained the city has $500,000 in a reserve fund, and the amount is expected to climb to about $700,000 as more developments come forward. More than half of the current reserve – $300,000 – is from the Bosa project, for an amenity within the project. Coun. Al Campbell said he was “astonished” by the reserve fund, and suggested that if developers were told their amenity

Anti-gang funding ‘to be cut’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

associated behaviour. Designed to service 60 students a year, Wraparound currently has a waiting list of about 70 students, she added. It would “definitely” be concerning if funding wasn’t renewed as requested, she said. But Sandhu said he is confident that will be the case. He cited documents obtained through an Access to Information request last week by the NDP’s public safety critic, Don Davies. “The documents show that, basically, the Conservatives have no plan to renew that funding,” Sandhu said. “I also confirmed it with the school board in Surrey that they have been told to wrap up the program.”

According to the documents, which Sandhu shared with Peace Arch News, “no decision has been made on continuing this program past March 31, 2011.” Sandhu criticized the move as a “huge mistake in the fight against crime.” Such programs are vital to address issues with crime and gang violence, such as those being seen in North Surrey, he added. While Sandhu challenged Surrey North Conservative MP Dona Cadman to take a stand against the decision, she is “nowhere to be heard” on the issue, he said. Cadman did not respond to a request for comment by Peace Arch News’ press deadline.

Federal funding for programs that aim to keep at-risk youth out of gangs – including the Surrey school district’s Wraparound Project – is being cut, Surrey North NDP candidate Jasbir Sandhu has claimed. But while the district’s safe school’s co-ordinator confirmed the project’s initial three-year contract expires March 31, Theresa Campbell said Monday she has no reason to believe her request for another two years’ funding will be denied. “It’s not necessarily that it’s being cut. The project funding is scheduled to end March 31,” Campbell said. “Based on some of the unbelievable success and results we’ve had… I’m very optimistic the support will continue. “In any event, the students and the families in the program are going to SEAFOOD SPECIAL continue to be supported Wild Salmon & Prawns . . . until the end of the school year.” KIKIS SPECIAL More than $888,000 in Chicken & Tiger Prawns . . funding from the $33.6 million Youth Gang AND MORE IN-HOUSE SPECIALS!

Pro-Falcon group skirts Liberals’ spending cap Jeff Nagel Black Press

A third-party group backing Kevin Falcon’s Liberal leadership bid won’t say how much cash it’s raised so far or expects to spend. The Falcon 20/20 organization has amassed high-profile corporate support but is exempt from the party’s leadership campaign rules that cap spending by Falcon and other would-be premiers at no more than $450,000. The loophole could allow the official campaign to circumvent the spending limit – which Falcon has criticized as low – but the organizer

Liberal leadership contender Kevin Falcon – who has been critical of rival Christy Clark’s supporters’ procedures in signing up BC Liberal party members – has called for the rejection of some memberships submitted on his behalf.

Falcon 20/20 came under increased scrutiny this week after Christy Clark described the organization as a collection of “insiders”

and suggested Falcon’s campaign is not sufficiently inclusive. Falcon – a South Surrey resident – responded saying Clark’s attack was something he’d expect of a New Democrat, and she’d be “thrilled” if she had his level of support. “Glib, off-the-cuff comments might make for good ratings on a talk show, but if you want to be leader of our party and premier of our province, you have to know that your words have power,” Falcon said. “So, pick them carefully, and put them to work uniting British Columbians, rather than dividing us.”

Fire hall will be city icon: chief Tracy Holmes


Staff Reporter

Tracy Holmes photo

Surrey fire Capt. Reo Jerome (right) and firefighter Dave Baird say the fire pole at the new Hall 14 will shave precious seconds off the crew’s response time. There are only three halls in the city with a fire pole.

s a young boy about five or six years old, Reo Jerome slid down his first fire pole at the New Westminster hall. He whisked down the brass rod in seconds, wrapped safely in the arms of his dad, one of the city’s firefighters. A few years later, he was old enough to make the slide solo – “every kid’s dream,â€? the nowSurrey fire captain said last week. But it wasn’t until late last month, after nearly three decades as a Surrey firefighter and on the first day of operations at the city’s newest fire hall, that Jerome got to use the pole on the job. “In my 29 years, I’ve never used a fire pole,â€? he said. “It’s quicker‌ plus the tradition of having a fire pole is pretty cool.â€? Jerome and firefighter Dave Baird were among many on hand at Hall 14, at 2016 176 St., Friday – one week later – to celebrate the state-of-the-art hall’s official opening. City and department leaders lauded the $4-million facility as “the beginning of a new eraâ€? – one that will better meet the demands of South Surrey’s growing population and stand as an impressive example of what the city has to offer. It “really gives the south end of Surrey just an amazing response capability,â€? said assistant fire Chief Joe Deluca, describing the hall as “almost our flagship.â€? “Our response level will be fabulous.â€? Hall 14 is Surrey’s 15th fully staffed hall, Deluca noted – triple the number that existed when he started his firefighting career 31 years ago. Fire Chief Len Garis said the hall will be “a real iconâ€? for Surrey, as the first civic building visitors from the U.S. will see. That first glimpse will include artwork by Derek Rowe that graces the exterior west wall and features firefighter Nancy Innes and Capt. Terry Hunt, along with Halls Prairie Elementary students Darrin Thoring, Tamara Marlikowski, Eva Corrigan and Lexi Olma. In addition to art, the hall’s

Complete with various sustainable features such as a solar hot-water system and reduced-flow water fixtures – as well as an in-ground truck washing system and radial-heat floors in the truck bay – the facility is a far cry from what volunteers who manned the Hazelmere Valley’s first fire hall 65 years ago had. “When I started, we didn’t have anything,� said Jess Smith, one of the valley’s first volunteer firefighters. Smith, who attended Friday’s opening with his wife, Marg, and who spent 37 years answering calls for assistance before retiring in 1985, said he was “proud to be here.� Marg said memories abound of her husband being called to duty in the middle of the night – awakenings she admitted she doesn’t miss. Jerome and Baird, whose wife Innes is a firefighter at Hall 17, both lauded the decision to man the hall by a career crew. Like the brass pole, it will shave precious time off of the firefighters’ response, they said, noting a fire can double in size in as little as 30 seconds. The ability to respond quicker also means the crew can cover a broader area, and will now take the lead in areas previously under the watch of Hall 17 and Hall 13 crews. Seventeen paid-on-call firefighters will support the four-man engine. Project co-ordinator Bud Livesey, who retired from the Surrey Fire Service last year, said the new hall is something to be proud of. “We know it will serve the community well.�

news White Rock resident credits survival to care at Royal Columbian

Alive and well, thanks to hospital trauma care Chris Bryan Black Press

Three years ago, Curtis Zanussi was working for a family friend on a construction project at a golf course in Aldergrove. The White Rock man was putting in drain tile in a trench about seven feet deep, and using a laser level to ensure the pipes were angled correctly. After a brief coffee break, Zanussi returned to the trench and realized he’d left his level at the bottom – so he jumped in to get it. Immediately he noticed a spring breaking through the soil and heard his boss shouting “get out!” But he didn’t have time. Suddenly the trench wall collapsed, crushing him against the far wall from the

Zanussi was there to But for Zanussi, who lend his support to the couldn’t breathe, his hospital that he says world soon went dark. saved him – and where, after that terrible “Within a split second, my world accident, he spent three came crashing down,” months of his life.

“To this day I’m amazed with the way this hospital can deal with the constant bombardment of trauma patients from across the region,” he said. At the golf course, his co-workers revived him through CPR and tried to keep him from lapsing back into unconsciousness. Paramedics on scene quickly determined that specialized trauma care was needed and a helicopter was dispatched to whisk him to Royal Columbian. His injuries were serious and multiple: his pelvis was shattered,

a lung was punctured, bones were “loose and floating” and much of the skin from his knees to his lower back had been torn away from the underlying tissues, which is known as “degloving.” The first two weeks were spent in an induced coma, during which he had several surgeries. Later, his road to recovery was aided by clear, realistic goals set out by the medical staff. Zanussi says these helped keep him from falling into despair. “The staff were so good at focusing me on the next goal,” he said, citing getting out

of his bed and sitting in his wheelchair for two minutes as an early one. He also set a big goal of his own. Before the accident he’d planned to propose to his girlfriend, Kerri, and even had the ring. Three weeks into his hospital stay, with Kerri spending hours by his side, he decided it was time. He couldn’t even get down on one knee, but the pending wedding gave them both something to look forward to, and it gave him a tangible goal for his rehab: to be able to walk down the aisle on their wedding day. Today, he’s able

to walk, though he says he’ll never be 100 per cent—a fact that he shrugs off, grateful simply to have survived. “Everybody has their own things to deal with. That’s how I look at it,” he said. “I always thought I knew what was important and this confirmed it.” He believes he’s been given a second chance that, but for the high quality of care available at RCH, he might not otherwise have had. “I don’t think there’s a chance you can live in this area too long without being impacted by RCH in some way.”

Lottery offers three grand prizes The Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation has launched a new fundraising venture, which offers the chance to win a vacation home in Kelowna, Parksville or Whistler. The BC Vacation Home Lottery is the only lottery with three grand prizes for three big winners, the foundation says. “We are very excited to start this new venture,” says Adrienne Bakker, president and CEO of the foundation. “As a fundraising tool, BC Vacation Home Lottery gives us the ability to raise significant dollars for much needed equipment, research and programs at the Royal Columbian Hospital. Every ticket sold is an important step forward in providing world-class care to the critically injured and seriously ill.” Proceeds from this year’s lottery will be used to support emergency and trauma services at the hospital.

The BC Vacation Home Lottery features three beautiful homes. Ticket holders will be competing for 1,743 prizes totalling more than $3.2 million, including a $260,000 early bird prize – 50 hours on a private jet. Other prizes include the latest new vehicles, worldwide vacations, leisure and home electronics prizes. The three grand prize packages include a vacation home and cash. The final deadline for ticket sales is midnight, April 7, 2011.

Children from Seaview Childcare Centre and Sandcastle and Sunshine Preschool count and roll pennies Monday afternoon.

Coins from the heart After being inspired by the performance of a group of young people at a concert last fall, Nancy Geerts decided she’d try to similarily motivate the youngsters at South Surrey’s Seaview Childcare Centre, where she works as a childcare provider. She came up with the idea for a penny drive, with the proceeds going to Variety the Children’s Charity, in effort to promote leadership and selflessness amongst the children at the centre. “Being that my job is to guide and encourage children, I thought I would try and make a difference in

our own backyard,” Geerts said. Since mid-January, more than 60 children at Seaview – as well as Sandcastle and Sunshine Preschool – have been collecting pennies from family members, friends, from around the house or wherever they can find them. So far, more than $268 has been counted, and Geerts said there is still “about half a big water jug” full of pennies left to count. “The kids have really enjoyed it – they get so excited every time they bring in some more pennies,” she added. - Nick Greenizan

A taste for ancient medicine L

his previous career, Chase – who has long since gotten over his needle phobia – said he doesn’t have any regrets. “I think if you follow your passion, you can’t go wrong. I’m proof of that.” In addition to following his heart, Chase lets his taste buds guide him in the kitchen. In this week’s addition of Local Flavours, he shares his adapted recipe for tomato soup, which he has borrowed from the late Pierre Berton, a Canadian literary icon. “I make this soup every year in big batches, it’s quite the undertaking, but worth the effort,” he said of the recipe which freezes well.

arry Chase was working as a fleet manager for a car dealership when he decided to take a jab at a new career. After more than three decades in the automotive industry, his profession was becoming a pain in the neck, literally. “I was getting pretty tired of my Kristyl Clark job and felt burnt out,” said Chase, who has suffered from scoliosis most of his life. Years of physiotherapy and countless visits to a chiropractor only served to mask his pain, but it was acupuncture that would bring welcome relief. Despite a lifelong fear of needles, Chase decided to give the ancient Chinese medicinal route a try. He didn’t anticipate it would change his life completely. “I’ve always been interested in alternative medicine, so I decided to try it for myself,” said Chase, who first started with laser acupuncture in an attempt to avoid being pricked with needles. “I didn’t notice anything staggering, but could definitely tell something was happening.” Eventually, he built up his nerve to try the real deal. After six treatments, Chase was pain free for the next six months. “I couldn’t believe it. I knew it wouldn’t be permanent because my condition doesn’t ever go away, but it was the first time I’d felt free of pain.” In 1999, at the age of 50, Chase decided to take a leap of faith and pursue a career in acupuncture. With support from his wife, Charlotte, the couple moved from Langley to Calgary, where he attended Grant McEwen College for the next four years. After obtaining his licence, he practised in Lethbridge for two years before moving to White Rock in 2005. Last November, he opened his own practice, Leading Edge Acupuncture. Looking back on his decision to jump ship from

Representation Agreements Revisited When the Representation Agreement Act came into force on February 28, 2000 there was a great deal of reluctance on the part of many lawyers to use the Representation Agreements which that legislation authorized. The feeling was that these new instruments were difficult to draft and execute, and would be far more costly than a Power of Attorney which is a short, simple and easily executed document. I admit that I was among that group of lawyers who were skeptical about the usefulness and practicality of Representation Agreements. In the seven years since they were first introduced to B.C. I have come to appreciate how useful and important Representation Agreements can be. Whereas a Power of Attorney authorizes the grantee to look after the grantor’s legal and financial affairs, a Representation Agreement can have the same application but can also authorize the representative to look after the grantor’s health and personal care needs. If you don’t think that’s important, wait until you have a sick parent, relative or friend who needs help not only with their legal and financial matters, but also with their health and personal care decisions. Without a representative to decide for them, an ailing or incompetent person’s course of medical treatment, prescriptions, nursing care, living accommodations, etc. fall to the Public Guardian and Trustee, or may become the subject of acrimonious contest between family members or friends who have divergent ideas about what is best for their ailing parent, relative or friend. Accordingly, I now recommend that anyone over 65 years of age or who has a life threatening illness should have a Power of Attorney which includes a backup attorney, a Health Care Directive (Living Will) and a Representation Agreement for health and personal care. For more information about Representation Agreements and other estate planning matters, call Dale Bradford at Bradford & Green 604-531-1041.

Stripes: The Mystery Circus

Under the Mango Tree

This delightful spectacle combines physical theatre, cabaret and traditional theatre in a play about a woman who wants to run away and join the circus. Through song, memories and sheer determination, our heroine reveals eight out-of-this-world circus acts in an audition that humorously and touchingly goes awry. Writer/performer Sarah Hayward creates a memorable character who charms the audience with her spunk and spirit.

For many young men, going to a new country is a journey full of hope, promise, and opportunity. But what about the children left behind? Performer/playwright Veenesh Dubois weaves a semi-autobiographical tale about a young girl whose father emigrates to Canada. Letters are their only connection as she waits to joins him. The show has played to packed houses and standing ovations, as the heartfelt themes of love, loss and immigration are explored in a story that touches us all.

Roots & Wings Montessori collecting $25,000 for educational trip

your sign

Surrey students bound for the UN Sheila Reynolds Black Press

All the studying and memorizing – not to mention the tireless fundraising – is consuming an enormous amount of their time and energy. But the goal, a trip to the United Nations in New York, is what’s keeping kids at Roots & Wings Montessori motivated. The group of nine- to 14-year-olds are heading to the Big Apple in April to participate in The Montessori Model United Nations, a program developed for students to learn the work of the UN by actually participating in it. Students from around the world are assigned a country for the mock UN and become ambassadors for that country. The Grade 4-7 classmates from Roots & Wings in Panorama are divided into two groups, one representing the Philippines and one Zimbabwe. “When we go into the UN, we have to know everything about our countries,” says student Maxime Labrecque. The kids have also been studying up on other cultures, religions, societies and peoples throughout the world.

“We had to memorize 195 countries,” says 11-year-old Kyro Plaviak. And they’ve identified a lengthy list of problems facing the world, such as poverty, disease and terrorism. The kids will participate in smaller discussion groups and any potential solutions the youth come up with will be sent to the actual UN secretary general to take into consideration. The trip is planned for April 13-22 and will also include an excursion to Washington, DC. Kids and parents at the school have been fundraising for months, baking and selling muffins to local businesses, holding an online auction, selling toys and books, holding bottle drives and a movie night. And while they’ve raised about $3,000, it’s a far cry from the $25,000 required. To that end, the privately run school is hoping to get corporate sponsorship or cash donations to help cover the cost of air fare and hotel accommodation.

Raw milk can’t be sold to the public, but farmer Alice Jongerden argues the ban runs counter to citizens’ right to nutritional choice. attempt to sidestep the ban, as Jongerden had initially attempted by labeling raw milk ‘not for human consumption.’ However, Fraser Health spokesman Roy Thorpe said the health authority will hold back on further enforcement action until the new court challenge is complete. Jongerden said she doesn’t aim to market raw milk directly to the public but only to the cow share’s 450 Lower Mainland members, as she had previously. Since farmers can drink milk from their own cows, members had argued they were merely collecting liquid dividends from the cows they own and that there was no public sale of milk. However, victory in court might effectively legalize raw milk dairies. Jason Graatl, Jongerden’s lawyer, said the province should simply regulate unpasteurized dairies, apply a regime of inspections

B.C.’s insistence on pasteurization is less about safety, he said, and more about extending the product shelf life and protecting “industrial” milk producers from raw milk competition. A U.S. pathologist has sworn an affidavit in support of the safety of raw milk, adding pasteurization reduces beneficial enzymes and bacteria and lactose intolerant people can drink raw milk without problems. B.C.’s provincial health officer maintains unpasteurized milk is dangerous because it can be contaminated by bacteria and other pathogens that have caused serious outbreaks of illness in other jurisdictions. Samples of Home On The Range milk tested in early 2010 contained what public health officials said were high colliform and E. coli levels.

A new legal front has been opened by advocates battling for the right to drink and distribute raw milk. Farmer Alice Jongerden, the founder of Chilliwack-based Home On The Range cowsharing co-op, is mounting a constitutional challenge of a 2010 court order that bars her from producing or distributing unpasteurized milk, which B.C. law deems a public health hazard. “We want the freedom to make our own nutritional choice,” Jongerden said. Her court challenge argues the prohibition against unpasteurized milk in B.C. is a violation of her right to liberty and security of the person under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and that the stiff criminal penalties are unjust. Violators can be jailed for three years and fined up to $3 million. If she succeeds in overturning the section of the Public Health Act that bans distribution of unlicensed and unpasteurized milk, Jongerden said she intends to resume operation of the raw milk dairy, which she handed over to Ontario raw milk advocate Michael Schmidt last fall to avoid contempt-of-court sanctions. Schmidt has continued the operation under the name OurCows and claimed he is distributing the milk not for food but as a line of cosmetics. Fraser Health planned to send inspectors to determine whether OurCows is merely a new

Cohen salmon probe extension criticized Jeff Nagel Black Press

Justice Bruce Cohen will have an extra 14 months to get to the bottom of the mystery of the dwindling Fraser River sockeye salmon. His inquiry into the downturn has been granted an extension, with a final report now due by June 30, 2012 instead of this spring. Cohen cited the complexity of the commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, the difficult and time-consuming document disclosure

process and large number of participants in obtaining more time. The commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget is also increasing, from $14 million to an estimated $25 million. Hearings are now slated to run until at least September. The commissioner is to make recommendations on improving the future sustainability of the sockeye fishery, including potential changes in policies, practices and procedures of the Department of Fisheries and

Oceans (DFO). The delay has caused anger among First Nations that are close to treaties that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be concluded until the federal government signs off on guaranteed shares of the salmon fishery. Six treaty tables where agreementsin-principle are close are in limbo because Ottawa wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finalize treaty fishing rights until it receives Cohenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s findings, according to Sophie Pierre, chief commissioner of the B.C. Treaty Commission.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of the delay, what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re concerned about is the growing debt First Nations are facing,â&#x20AC;? she said, referring to the loans aboriginal groups must incur to cover their negotiating costs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have First Nations negotiating tables that are fast approaching the tipping point where what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get in terms of a cash offer for self-government is going to be less than what they owe for going through these negotiations. So whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the point?â&#x20AC;?

For UBC and SFU students, it will mean an increase in the monthly price they pay, from around $25 to $30. Hardie said TransLink is tightening up administration of the passes to prevent abuse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had experienced a lot of misuse of passes, students selling them, passes being reported lost and then replaced and then the supposedly lost passes showing up in circulation someplace else.â&#x20AC;?

That will change once TransLinkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smart card system arrives in 2013. By then, student cards will include a U-Pass chip that will be detected by the new system.

news ‘Jigsaw puzzle’ of evidence, says defence attorney

Sex-assault verdict expected next week Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Lawyers wrapped up their cases last week in the sexual assault trial of Surrey’s Kyle Berkson, with the defense suggesting that the alleged young victim may have exaggerated or fabricated the entire incident. Berkson, 36, is accused of sneaking into a nine-year-old girl’s bedroom last April and sexually assaulting her in her bed. He faces charges of breaking and entering with intent to commit sexual assault with a weapon, invitation to sexual touching, sexual

interference and uttering threats. In making his closing submissions, defense lawyer David Gable told the court the case against Berkson is purely circumstantial, and said there are many missing pieces to what he called a “jigsaw puzzle” of evidence. Gable argued a medical exam provided no solid evidence a sexual assault even occurred – noting an attending doctor said the demeanour of the girl was unusually upbeat under the circumstances. Gable also said evidence identifying Berkson as the perpetrator is

deficient, if a sexual assault indeed occurred. He said the description of the perpetrator varied widely from witness to witness and that perhaps the alleged victim was using Berkson as a “reference point” in terms of providing a description of her attacker. The Crown disputed the assertion the evidence is only circumstantial, noting there is not only direct and corroborative, but ample physical evidence, such as Berkson’s DNA on the girl’s cheek, a pill bottle of the accused’s found in her bedroom, and the victim’s torn bathing

suit bottom. Prosecutor Lynett Jung argued the “constellation of evidence” proves beyond a reasonable doubt Berkson is guilty on all four charges. She said Berkson had been in the home many times and was familiar with the unique layout, a witness saw a man similar in description to Berkson sitting in a car adjacent to the victim’s home prior to the offense, and another witness testified the accused had bragged about his ability to crack any lock (his father is a locksmith). The girl, now 10 years old, testified last week that she woke up in

the middle of the night last April 23 to a man sitting on top of her. She said he sexually assaulted her, tried to get her to perform oral sex, licked her cheek and threatened her before leaving. She said the man sounded and “kind of ” looked like Berkson, a friend of the family’s, and identified him in the courtroom. Gable warned to be cautious when dealing with such a young, sympathetic witness as it makes the objectivity of the court that much more difficult. The judge reserved his decision, but a verdict is expected Feb. 15.

Health officials are warning that a flu virus in the east could head here.

Not too late to vaccinate: health officials

Immunization urged as flu moves west Jeff Nagel Black Press

Flu season has been mild so far in B.C. but health authorities warn it may not stay that way. The influenza virus hitting Wastern Canada hard may be felt more strongly here in the weeks ahead. “The winter is long and the risk is not yet over,” said Dr. Danuta Skowronski, physician epidemiologist at the B.C. Centre for Disease Control. “It would be wise to learn from the experience in Wastern Canada and prepare for that now, because the same could still happen here.” Influenza season typically spans November to April and the peak can happen any time during that period. There’s still time to get immunized even though it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to take full effect. Flu shots are still available through public health units, doctors’ offices and pharmacists. “We are carefully watching other parts of the country,” added Fraser Health spokesperson Joan Marshall. This year’s vaccine does cover the H3N2 strain spreading in eastern Canada. The flu vaccine is recommended and free for the elderly, very young

children, and people of all ages with chronic medical conditions as they are at highest risk of hospitalization and death due to complications from influenza. The province expanded Pharmacare coverage in December to include two brands of antiviral drugs, Tamiflu and Relenza. They’re now covered for people at high risk of complications and who have flu symptoms during the 201011 flu season, as well as all residents at long-term care homes. Most young healthy people recover from the flu without difficulty, but those at high risk may be helped with antivirals, which work best if taken at the first sign of symptoms appearing. As a result, authorities advise that those at high risk have a plan in place for early treatment ahead of time. The flu is potentially a serious respiratory illness and comes on suddenly with fever and cough as well as general aches and fatigue. Frequent hand-washing and covering coughs and sneezes is advised to keep the virus from spreading. There’s been little sign in B.C. this winter of the the H1N1 flu virus that triggered a mass immunization campaign a year ago.

604-531-6446 • Historically, chiropractors primarily treated conditions that originated from a pinched nerve. Of course, chiropractors still take care of symptoms from pinched nerves, but also treat many other types of neuro-musculo-skeletal conditions. Sometimes it can be difficult to determine whether the pain is coming from a muscle, joint or nerve. Nerve pain can mimic lots of different problems. A muscle pain that does not resolve with time or conservative treatment could possibly be an entrapped nerve. A joint that has pain where the pain can't be reproduced by local

Professionals fessionals On The Peninsula Pinched Nerve, Strained Muscle or Osteoarthritis testing may also be a pinched nerve. A nerve that is irritated in the spine doesn't always produce pain at the site of irritation. It can produce pain along the travelled course of the nerve. Injury to the sciatic nerve that originates in the lower back, can produce pain or numbness in only the foot, calve or hamstring muscle or any combination. Nerve entrapment in the spinal column is typically caused by a misalignment of vertebrae, a herniated or bulging disc, joint inflammation or osteoarthritis (spinal degeneration). There are other causes but not as common. When a nerve is irritated at the spinal level, pain is only one of the symptoms that may be felt. Burning, aching, numbness, tingling, itchiness, muscle twitching and muscle atrophy are a few other symptoms related to nerve pressure. How does one know that they have nerve irritation or nerve pressure in the spinal column? Chiropractors have the tools in their offices to help make a diagnosis of nerve pressure.

Other testing such as CT Scans and MRI's are also helpful in determining these problems. Sometimes a nerve problem can be helped by applying ice to the area. This may help the nerve by decreasing the swelling of the nerve. Other times, depending on the cause, ice does not help.

The latest production by White Rock Players Club, David Post’s thriller Earth and Sky, opens tonight (Wednesday, Feb. 9) and runs to Saturday, Feb. 26. Described as “a case of film noir on stage,” Earth and Sky is a poetic thriller set in present day Chicago and teeming with Chandler/ Hammett-style dialogue. It concerns would-be poet and part time librarian Sara McKeon (White Rock actor Lori Tych) who finds that her lover of 10 weeks, David Ames (Jason Dedrick), has been shot dead. Adding to her shock, she is told that David, owner of an expensive restaurant, has an unsavoury past that may have included kidnapping, rape and murder. Unable to believe that she gave her heart to a killer – and outraged that the police seem to have closed the book on David’s death – Sara launches her own investigation which plunges her into the urban labyrinth of the contemporary underworld. While her memories replay key moments in her relationship with her lover, her current investigation draws her inexorably toward a face-to-face meeting with his killer. Other performers include Mike Busswood (Sgt. Al Kersnowski), Ben Odberg (Det. H.E.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Premier team now 1-1

Errors burn Sharks Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

On Sunday, a day when many sports fans were watching the Super Bowl, Bayside Sharks head coach David Benoit was huddled in front of his computer screen, watching video of his premier men’s rugby team’s 16-10 loss to Capilano the day before. And a repeat viewing of the CDI Premier League game, played Saturday afternoon at South Surrey Athletic Park, did little to quell his frustration level, as he watched his ❝It was team squander a clearly game which he there for the quickly admits, taking, but was one they we couldn’t should have won. “It was very get it done.❞ frustrating. I David Benoit thought we had Bayside coach a good enough team on the field that we should have been able to beat them,” Benoit said. “It was clearly there for the taking, but we couldn’t get it done. They made fewer mistakes than we did… just a bad day at the office.” Missed scoring opportunities and sloppy ball-handling were the culprits, the coach said, while nine first-half penalties didn’t help matters either. At halftime, the Sharks – now 1-1 on the season – trailed 10-3, but had plenty of offensive forays end prematurely, due to dropped balls or poorly executed passes. “We only scored three, but really,

Surrey still in second place despite back-to-back losses

Eagles six-game win streak snapped by Kings Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Though they won just once in three games last week, the Surrey Eagles went out of their way to prove to a pair of potential playoff foes that they will not be pushed around. The Birds were whacked 3-0 on home ice Thursday by the first-place Powell River Kings – and lost 3-1 the following day to the Victoria Grizzlies, who trail Surrey by eight points – but both losses were tempered by what coaches these days often call “a high level of compete.” On Thursday, with his team trailing Powell River 2-0 late in the third period, Eagles blue-liner Linden Saip – who stands sixfoot-two and is listed at 195 pounds –

squared off against Kings defenceman Justin Dasilva, who at six-foot-five and 220 pounds is one of the BCHL’s biggest, and toughest, players. The fight came near the end of a raucous third period that saw the two sides pile up 56 minutes in penalties, four misconducts and three game misconducts. Eagles forward Daniel Gentzler was ejected for a delivering a blow to the head, and was suspended for Friday night’s tilt against the Grizzlies. And while a willingness to drop the gloves didn’t put another notch in the win column, the energy level did spill over to the next night’s game which, though it featured two second-period scraps – Jeff Vanderlugt in

the first, captain Tyler Morley in the second – was not quite as boisterous as Thursday’s action. The home team’s attention instead was focused on the opposing net, as the Eagles held a decided edge in scoring chances and peppered Victoria netminder Matt Ginn with 41 shots. Only Richard Vanderhoek was able to beat him, at 18:22 of the second period. After stopping 34 shots against Powell River, goaltender Karel St. Laurent earned a rest against Victoria, while rookie Andrew Hunt took over goaltending duties, stopping 21 shots. The two losses came after a 5-2 win Wednesday over the Coquitlam Express at the Coquitlam Sports Centre, which stretched

the Eagles’ win streak to six games. Vanderhoek, Michael Stenerson, Colton Mackie, Scott Holm and Vanderlugt each scored for the Eagles, while defenceman Riley Sweeney chipped in with two assists. St. Larent was in net, stopping 25 shots and now has 17 wins on the season. With 69 points, the team now has a fivepoint cushion on the third-place Langley Chiefs in the BCHL’s Coastal Conference; Powell River is in first with 87 points. The Eagles hit the road this weekend for their final road trip of the regular season, with a Friday-through-Sunday schedule that includes rematches with Powell River and Victoria, and wraps up with a game in Port Alberni against the Bulldogs.

Third-division Sharks earn victory  from page 33 late try to extend their lead. “It was basically the equivalent of an empty-net goal,” the coach said. Benoit was also impressed with the play of veteran premierleaguer Pat Bickerton as well as former first-division Shark – and Semiahmoo Secondary graduate – Jesse Train, who was making just his second-ever start at the premier level. “Jesse’s fitness and skill is just at another level this year. He played really, really well,” Benoit said. The one positive the Sharks can

take from the loss, Benoit said, is that the mistakes are easily correctable. “We have the skill, it’s not that, but we just made mistakes, and one led to another,” he said. “You always learn more from losses than you do wins, so we’ll just get back to work and get ready for the next game.” The Sharks don’t play this weekend, but return to the premierleague pitch Saturday, Feb. 19, when they host Meralomas at South Surrey Athletic Park. In first division action at SSAP, the Sharks also dropped a game

to Capilano, losing 33-19, while the Bayside third-division side knocked off the Caps 30-12. In the first division tilt, Zach Thorpe had two tries and was named man-of-the-match, with Senirusi Rauge adding the team’s third try. Dan Dixon and Mike Pinfield added conversions. In the thirds’ victory, Neil Kinskofer led the charge for the Sharks with a pair of tries, with others coming from Joe Foulani, Spencer Marshall and Mike Pajic. Man-of-the-match for Bayside was Bo Clark.

He has the size, athleticism, bloodline, statistics and a love for the game that would suggest a promising football career is ahead of him. But when American universities came calling, offering a full-ride scholarship to the 18-year-old Surrey resident, only one thing mattered to Christian Covington – academics. A first team All-Canadian as well as an Academic All-Canadian in his senior year at Vancouver College, the six-foot-three, 275-pound defensive lineman signed a letter of intent to attend Rice University last Wednesday afternoon, opting for the Houston school over similar offers from three major Pac-12 teams. “It’s a very academic school, ranked 17th in the nation. That appealed to me,” explained Covington after signing the letter. “I want to pursue medicine as a career. Rice is in Houston, the fourth largest city in the nation, and it’s located right next to the world’s largest medical centre. That was huge, and made my decision a little easier.” The son of Grover Covington, a Hamilton Tiger-Cats legend who is in the Canadian Football League (CFL) Hall of Fame and is the league’s all-time quarterback sack leader, Christian led the Vancouver College Fighting Irish to a Subway Bowl provincial championship last season.

an interception and two defensive touchdowns in 14 games. It will likely take a few years before he starts putting up those numbers for the Rice Owls of Conference USA, but Covington is willing to wait for the opportunity. “We’re not too sure about the playing situation,” he admitted. “Because of my age, I’m one of the youngest going there, I might be red-shirting (practice, not play) my first year. But I’ll leave it up to them. I’ll just play whatever role they tell me to.” But Owls had coach David Bailiff doesn’t expect it will be long before his new recruit makes an impact at the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) level. “His upside is going to be amazing,” Bailiff said. “He just turned 18 in October. He runs well and is very powerful. He’s been wellcoached by his father and uses great technique.” Grover Covington has had a huge influence on his son’s playing career, offering advice, some coaching and support along the way. But only after Christian was successful in letting his father allow him to play. “Football is the kind of sport you have to love. He was around it, but it was going to be his decision if he played,” said the father. “I never pushed him that way, but he bugged me to play in Grade 8. He kept saying ‘please Dad. Please Dad.’ So I told him ‘once you make that commitment, you gotta go full force.’ And he did. He’s always been that kind of young man.”
