Funding cuts anticipated

SCC asks board to trim year Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Christie Oads and sister Hayley snap photos of their parents, Howard and Ariadne Gribble, after the couple renewed their vows.

23 couples say ‘I do’ – again Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

Among those renewing their vows Valentine’s Day and celebrating 20-, 30- and even 60-plus years together, were John Stelzer and Renie McRae. Having first exchanged vows just three years ago, the two had the shortest marriage out of the close to two dozen couples who filed into First United Church Sunday. But the event held special meaning for the two nonetheless, especially since McRae’s birthday was just two days earlier. “My birthday was the same day as the (Olympic) Opening Ceremonies,” she said. “It just seemed like a birthday present, too.” The vow renewal was open to the community, and held in celebration of the church’s 100th anniversary this year. A 3 p.m. service included the singing of

hymns, prayers led by Rev. Joan McMurtry and a speech by Merv Lutes, former First United reverend. A formal recognition was given to Rev. Howard Filsinger, who was presented – to standing ovation – a certificate for his more than 30 years with the church. During that time, he conducted more than 1,500 weddings, McMurtry noted. The ceremony concluded when the 23 couples renewed their vows in unison at the front of the chapel. When McMurtry affirmed them husbands and wives, they all kissed. Many family members witnessed the vows, including children who were not yet born when their parents were married. Although Stelzer and McRae don’t have kids of their own, they were supported by Zed, their lab-rhodesian ridgeback-cross,

who sat quietly in the pews throughout the service. “She’s family,” Stelzer said. “She was the ring bearer in our first ceremony,” McRae added. After taking photos at the altar, the couples shared some tips to a successful marriage. Beth Plain – whose 64-year marriage to Frank was the longest out of the participants – said it’s important to “just stick with it.” Longtime White Rock residents Frank and Margaret Matthews, married 58 years, said certain qualities, like caring, are essential. Married for 32 years, Charlie and Cheryl Young said communication plays a big factor. “I think you have to respect one another; I think you have to talk,” Cheryl said, to which Charlie quipped: “You just listen to her.”

Surrey Civic Coalition is calling on the school board to shirk an anticipated $15-million shortfall and maintain 2009 funding levels. In a statement released Friday, the SCC’s Stephanie Ryan said cuts of $15 million will lead to larger class sizes, unenforced class composition regulations, fewer programs for students with special needs and fewer meals for inner-city students who arrive at school hungry every morning. She asked the ❝It will take board to “do the right thing,” even the public saying if it means trim- enough is enough.❞ ming a few more Laurae McNally days from the school board chair school year. “The board simply cannot afford to be compliant in this death by a thousand cuts to our school system in Surrey,” Ryan said. But board chair Laurae McNally said the requests are not realistic. For one thing, the school district is required by law to submit a balanced budget. And, a few extra days without school in session would barely scratch the surface of what the district is facing, she said. “Even if we closed again for another six days next year, that doesn’t make a dent in the $15- or $16-million problem we have,” McNally said Friday. Six days chopped from the current school year saved the district less than $1 million, she said. McNally maintained a strong push from parents could make the most difference leading up to the March 2 budget announcement, when the board will learn just how much will have to be axed from Surrey’s classrooms. She renewed her appeal to parents to add their voices to a call for provincial government to recognize Surrey’s unique position as one of the province’s only growing school districts. “It will take the public saying enough is enough here,” McNally said. “I definitely think moms and dads and community members all need to be express see page 2

FRESH BAKED EUROPEAN SPECIALTY BREADS

Two killed, one hurt Top Round in highway collision BARON OF BEEF

A head-on collision on Highway 99 killed two people Saturday night, and critically injured a third. Police say a southbound Honda CRX crossed the median between Highway 91 and King George Highway at 9:15 p.m., slamming into two northbound vehicles. The Honda driver, a Surrey man, and the female driver of a northbound Acura, also from Surrey, both died in the crash. A passenger in the Honda was airlifted to hospital in critical condition. The driver of the second northbound vehicle was not injured. Highway 99 was closed in both directions for several hours while police investigated. The cause of the crash is unknown at this time, and names of the victims have not been released. Any witnesses who have not yet spoken to police are asked to call Deas Island RCMP at

604-946-2184. Meanwhile, police say motorists involved in a “spectacular crash” that closed a busy South Surrey intersection early Tuesday were fortunate to emerged unscathed. The crash occurred just before 5 a.m., at 32 Avenue and 152 Street. Few details were available by Peace Arch News deadline, however, police said there was extensive damage and “major traffic problems” as a result. “It was pretty amazing no one was hurt,” said Const. Peter Neily. “From what I understand (it) was quite significant.” The intersection was closed while police investigated. Traffic was re-routed to 40 Avenue and 152 Street, where a second crash occurred shortly after. Neily said there were no reported injuries in that collision either.

Parents urged to speak out  from page 1 ing concern about this to the government.” Last month, McNally and other officials detailed the financial strain the Surrey district is under to Black Press, predicting a $15-million shortfall for the coming school year – money that will have to be found in cuts to programs and services. McNally said a “huge chunk” of the problem is rooted in the fact the education ministry doesn’t fund portables. At the same time, there have been no capital funds approved for Surrey since the 2005-06 school year,

when the replacement school for Sunnyside Elementary got the green light. (related story, page 5) “People really need to understand this piece about how the lack of capital is hurting us.” She remains hopeful an appeal to Surrey MLAs last week will help the district’s case, and encouraged parents to write or visit their provincial representatives to further impress the urgency of the situation. One thing is certain, she said – whatever cuts have to be made, they will affect every child in Surrey.

news City looking to fill three manager positions

WR operations director shifts to Langley post Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

David Pollock has ended his six-year tenure with the City of White Rock, resigning his position as operations director and taking employment as operations manager at the Township of Langley. His last day was Friday, Feb. 5. Pollock could not be reached for comment. Pollock’s leave follows that of former parks

manager Dale Kitsul, who was informed last November of his position’s redundancy. A core-services review led to the reorganization of city services, which saw the previously separate departments of public works and parks abolished in favour of a single engineering and municipal operations department. The city began seeking managers for both engineering and operations, as the manager

of operations at the time, Ted Haight, notified the city of his plans to retire. City manager Peggy Clark said Monday the city is finalizing reviewing the applicants for operations manager. “That should be done this week hopefully, and we’ll be looking to fulfill the director’s position following that,” she said. Clark noted there is currently an acting director of engineering and municipal

operations. The goal is to have the operations manager position filled in mid-March, and have a permanent operations director in April, she said. “We’re working as fast as we can,” she said. “It also depends on the applicants and when they indicate they’re available.” The new engineering manager position is also vacant.

Hosts relish Olympic duties Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

Former Miss White Rock Hayley Woodin is discovering the perks that come with being a BC Ambassador, especially when reigning during the 2010 Games. The position has not only allowed her to represent the province while it hosts the Olympics, but has also given her the opportunity to meet two world leaders, including Canada’s own. Woodin and ❝We’re just two other BC ambashaving a sadors met great time with Prime representing Minister Stethe province.❞ phen Harper Hayley Woodin last Friday in BC Ambassador Vancouver’s Federal Office Tower. “We talked to him for maybe five, 10 minutes or so,” she said. While waiting to speak to Harper, she said the three had the added bonus of being introduced to Netherlands Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende. “It was very cool, definitely one of the highlights so far of the Olympics.” Woodin, as well as Anna Dell and Miranda Stankiewicz (from Williams Lake and Prince George, respectively), were in downtown Vancouver all last weekend, handing out pins and flags. “We walk around wearing our crowns as ambassadors,” Woodin said. “A lot of people ask us about the program. Seeing a BC Ambassador is great for them. They want to know everything about us. “We’ve been swarmed by people.” Woodin said they have also given interviews for local and foreign media. “We’re just having a great time representing the province. This is really a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” While Dell and Stankiewicz returned home Tuesday, Woodin said she will continue to make trips from White Rock to Vancouver during the Games.

editorial

No tolerance for violent ‘protesters’ olice in Vancouver are showing remarkable restraint in dealing with Olympic protesters, opines an SFU criminology professor. Indeed they are. Not that the handful of thugs responsible for the violence on the weekend deserve anything less than an iron fist. However, that’s exactly what they want, and we agree that the Vancouver Police Department is wise not to be manipulated into what professional rabble-rousers hope will be a media spectacle. That said, every effort should be made to collect these clowns as quietly as possible, and place them behind bars for the duration of the Games, and well beyond. The people responsible for taking hammers and other objects to store windows in downtown Vancouver are not protesters. Real protesters have issues to raise and points to make. Individuals wearing black balaclavas, armed with various makeshift weapons, hellbent on destruction and violent confrontations with police, are nothing more than anarchistic goons. If they have any sort of point, it is drowned in their anonymous bile and hatred. There is much controversy surrounding the Games, and the stunning cost of staging them. There are all manner of social issues that could be addressed with that level of public and corporate funding. In a time when our public health services are already stretched to the limit – even without the massive influx of Olympic visitors that has effectively cancelled all elective surgeries in the province – questions should be raised about our priorities. And when – as inevitably happens in the aftermath of each Olympic spectacle – the true cost to local taxpayers is revealed and only a hapless few are scapegoated for overruns, the shift in attention from red flags to red ink will cause average citizens to further question the appropriateness of the outlay at a time of lingering economic woes, and wonder who were the true beneficiaries of all the hoopla. It is a valid debate, and one that no doubt shall be present each time the Games are held. What must be rejected utterly and entirely, is any tolerance or empathy for those who believe the right to free speech can be accompanied with wilful violence, perpetrated with no respect for public property, or the rights and opinions of others.

87 responding new co-operation with B.C.’s aboriginal people. Another claim is that unspecified Olympic sponsors are somehow “intimate” with oil sands extraction. Sharp research, guys. The criminal agitators massed at B.C. Place for the opening ceremonies, their useful idiots behind them, for one more shot at provoking a police response. They spat on the cops, they sprayed vinegar in their eyes, but no dice. It seems fitting that they slunk away around the time k.d. lang sang “Hallelujah.” I’m in Vancouver this week to report on the goings-on downtown while our sports specialists follow the fortunes of athletes from around B.C. I’ve had no response from the Pivot Legal Society to my question about their latest scheme, giving away red tents to encourage people to camp on city sidewalks. I asked them how they plan to determine that their staged squatters are actually homeless. Pivot’s overt contribution to the Victoria protest was to provide “legal observers,” including their long-time leader David Eby. They walk with the mob wearing yellow vests and smug expressions, oddly oblivious to the protesters’ antics while searching for any hint of excessive police response, so they can flood the complaints process and courts. With decreasing compliance from the media, these lawyers for losers pretend they are bravely helping the banana republic of Canada struggle to emerge from a police state.

Criticism misses point Editor: Re: Environmental topsy-turvy, Dec. 16 My admiration of columnist Dr. Roy Strang for taking a principled, scientific stand on anthropogenic global warming (AGW) goes up several notches after reading his daughter’s letter. Peer pressure is nothing compared to familial pressure. All of the critical letters display either the “move along, nothing to see here,” “ignore the man behind the curtain” distractions, or the ad hominem “you must be paid by big oil” vilification. When you look at the details released through Climategate, particularly the “harry_read_me” file that has become an instant classic example of how not to do computer programming, you realize how shakey the whole structure is. The argument that CO2 was the primary driver of any observed warming was always weak, since physics shows CO2 alone could only account for a small fraction of the claimed warming. The computer models developed elaborate mechanisms by which CO2 was presumed to act as a trigger for other more effective greenhouse gases, like water vapour. However, those models failed miserably to predict climate trends over the past 10 years. We can be proud of Ross McKittrick and Steven McIntyre, two retired Canadians with mathematics backgrounds who, on their own initiative, started detailed analysis of the IPCC models. It was McIntyre who first raised questions about the original IPCC hockey stick graph, and showed that the mathematical treatment of bristlecone pine cores used as a temperature proxy was incorrect. Governments, like the Campbell Liberals, were quick to jump on AGW as a way of introducing new taxes. It is therefore not surprising they show no interest in rethinking their taxes based upon this newly relased information. Until citizens do the research and bring pressure on MLAs and MPs, the governments will continue to rip us off in the name of this fraud. Ed Beauregard, Surrey

SPCA should have stepped in Editor: Re: ‘Peacock logs air miles,’ Feb.3 What an incredibly sad ending of a peacock’s journey! Granted the peacock was not at the best place for safety at Grandview Corners, but capturing it to release it in Stanley Park, the Urban Forest, the bird sanctuary or wherever it could possibly have come from, would have been the only right decision. It was not to be. As we never seem to learn that wild animals, furry, feathered or finned, belong in the

wild and actually have a right to spend their lives in freedom, they invariably end up in some zoo, cage or other restricted-freedom area. I am seriously disappointed that the SPCA – as usual – did not speak up for the poor peacock. From experience, I know that in B.C. we are not even allowed to pick up a crow, injured or not, and keep it during recuperation at home as ‘B.C. citizens do not have the right to keep a wild animal.’ Just because the peacock made it into one of our big-box shopping areas, it can now be labeled a tame bird? Madelon Keij, South Surrey (Editor’s note: After a few days at Art

Knapp’s, the peacock was returned to its original owner in South Surrey.)

Growth needed Editor: Re: White Rock taxes, parking fees to rise; Plans unveiled for Semiahmoo; et al. Feb. 5. Page 3 of the Peace Arch News last Friday says it all: Semiahmoo Shopping Centre in Surrey is expanding and remodeling to the tune of $7 million; whilst at the same time White Rock is raising taxes and parking fees and limiting development at the expense of expanding its tax base.

When one considers the number of seniors in White Rock, it makes you wonder what Couns. Helen Father, Lynn Sinclair, et al. are thinking when you see White Rock is simply becoming a place where no one wants to build or expand their business. The question has been posed – is White Rock closed for business? Any reasonable person, other than this myopic council, knows the answer: It is. And the end result, the citizens of WR simply will get stiffed with higher and higher taxes and less and less in services. Bill Phelps, Surrey

Nearly 8,000 pancakes were cooked at White Rock Community Centre Feb. 9, after the Olympic flame passed through town. The breakfast included appearances by former Olympians and torchbearers.

Olympic spirit cookin’... for most Editor: Being a resident of Canada for some years now there aren’t many times that I have brushed aside my British heritage and became a true Canadian. Tuesday morning last week was an exception. I was fortunate to witness the Olympic torch going through my community of White Rock. The sheer amount of people that came out to see the torch was truly amazing. People were dancing, cheering, laughing! There was so much energy on the streets, everyone was happy. For me, the torch run summed up what the Olympics really mean to me. It’s not just about sport, but inspiring everyone to be better, bring communities together and showcasing how lucky we are to live in this great country. For the few seconds that the torch ran past me, I felt proud of my community and, more importantly, I felt what it means to be Canadian. Gavin W. Johnston, White Rock Spirit of BC Committee member ■ I had the honour to be the MC at Tuesday’s pancake breakfast celebrating the Olympic flame. I was prepared for a crowd but in no way expected the amazing event that actually took place. When I arrived just before 7 a.m., there was already a crowd of several hundred waiting patiently and cheerfully in line. The centre was packed until 11 a.m. The firefighters of Local 2407 served 2,407 breakfasts. Because of the huge numbers of people that showed up, there were inevitable delays. Some folks waited in line for as much as an hour and then waited again for their pancakes, almost all in the good spirits that was so much a part of

the morning. We were graced by the presence of community leaders, and Olympians mixing with the crowds. We were entertained by children representing six local schools. Thank you to the children and their parents as we were able to showcase the talent in our community. I’d like to recognize the efforts of the organizers and volunteers. I count this event as an overwhelming success, and the fact that almost everyone had a good time says a lot about our community’s Olympic spirit. Geoff Giffin, White Rock ■ The celebration in White Rock at the new community centre was a huge letdown. It was unorganized, and the venue was way too small. When I arrived with my two boys who performed there, it was apparent that the organizers had not planned for so many people showing up. The children were to perform and then get served a pancake breakfast. They did perform, but there was barely enough room for them to dance. The people having pancakes could barely see and so instead, they continued their conversations. The children did a wonderful performance and were very excited to be involved in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It would have been even more special if they got to have the pancake breakfast they had been promised, but after they performed they were told it would be over an hour wait in an outdoor lineup. So they returned to school, proud of their dancing but feeling a little let down. This should have been a spectacular event. Sadly, it was not. Susan Wade, Surrey

Guilty plea leads to jail sentence A man arrested Christmas Day with a loaded handgun will spend nearly three years in jail after pleading guilty to related charges in Surrey Provincial Court. Scott Schneider, 30, was arrested early Dec. 25, following a hit-andrun to a vehicle parked on White Rock’s Parker Street. A witness’s description helped police intercept the suspect vehicle shortly after, in the 15400-block of Roper Avenue, at which time officers seized a loaded handgun and arrested two men. Schneider was

facing eight charges in connection with the incident. He pleaded guilty Feb. 4 to charges of care and control of a vehicle while impaired and possession of a restricted firearm with ammunition. He was sentenced to two years and nine months in jail, and was handed a 10-year firearms prohibition as well as a two-year driving prohibition. His passenger, a 27-year-old White Rock man, is to appear in court Thursday (Feb. 18) on charges of uttering threats and failing to remain at the scene of an accident. -Tracy Holmes

Competing trés bien Peace Arch Elementary’s Bowie Leckie will put his French skills to the test at the regional La Dictée PGL – Fondation Paul Gérin-Lajoie next month, for a shot at the international stage. Leckie, in Grade 6, won the berth by taking top spot at the school level Feb. 10. It will be his second crack at the regional title in two years. Last year, he just missed the taste of victory, after a tie-breaker defeat. The competition, held annually, challenges students to write out a dictated 100-word paragraph en francais. In advance, they are given a list of words to study. Leckie’s mom Margeaux described her son’s success so far as “a huge accomplishment.” “I don’t speak a word of French. He’s doing this on his own,” she said. Teacher Natalie LaRoche said the international event, held in Montreal in May, draws competitors from across Canada, the U.S. and Africa.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Peninsula group raising money for future of long-struggling country

Planning help for Haiti in years to come Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

M

ore than a month has passed since an earthquake devastated Haiti, killing hundreds of thousands of people and destroying much of whatever tenuous infrastructure existed. As relief efforts continue to collect supplies and funds to address the ongoing need for emergency assistance – including more than $1,000 raised by a young South Surrey girl who recently hosted a taco dinner and nearly $7,000 raised by Ray Shepherd Elementary students – representatives of a Peninsula consortium are encouraging donors to also consider directing their help a little farther into the future. Nancy Shewfelt, a member of the Help for Haiti Consortium, said the group is actively working to gather resources for projects that will be developed down the road in conjunction with the Haitians who will benefit from them. Often, what outsiders perceive is needed is quite different from the reality of those living the situation, Shewfelt noted. As horrific as the earthquake was, it created an opportunity to help the long-struggling Haitians rebuild their country the way they need it to be, she said. “Essentially, Haiti has a clean slate now. Let’s take it from their perspective and work with them,” she said. Help for Haiti was formed in 2004 by Rotarians from the Semiahmoo, White Rock and Millennium Rotary clubs. It has since grown to include the Cloverdale and Surrey clubs, as well as other District 5050 Rotary groups. The concept came to life shortly after some Peninsula Rotarians – including Shewfelt and Robert Harris, both members of the Semiahmoo club – shared their experiences in the impoverished country. Shewfelt visited Haiti with her daughter, Lauren Hanna, in 2004. They spent most of their time working with the Haitian Health Foundation in Jeremie, making day trips to outlying villages to deliver supplies. On their return, Hanna described conditions as “absolutely filthy, like living in a toilet.” The pair told the Peace Arch News the biggest crime would be to turn their backs. Harris first visited Haiti in 2000, to help HHF set up a computer support system. He has since visited nearly a dozen times more, working most recently to build a partnership between the consortium and the Foundation for International

Jenny Messenger’s Grade 4 class at Ray Shepherd Elementary is one of many classes that has raised money to help the people of Haiti. Development Assistance (FIDA), a Canadian charitable organization working on agricultural co-operative projects in Haiti. FIDA’s executive director Betsy Wall arrived in Haiti just hours before the earthquake struck and was to have stayed in the guest house where the first known Canadian fatality of the quake was killed, Harris said. “That whole building, where all of them would have been sleeping later that day – whoosh,” he said. “I’ve never been quite this close to a serious event like this before.”

Armed with the firsthand experience and a direct connection to people on the front lines in Haiti, Harris and Shewfelt are confident Band-Aid solutions are not the way to go if securing Haiti’s long-term future is the goal. The consortium’s focus now is to raise awareness of that longer-term need and collect funds so that when the time does come, work can be done. They’ve set a goal to raise $50,000 in the next year. Unsolicited donations totalling $5,000 in the first two weeks following the earthquake have Shewfelt optimistic the goal is attainable. Consortium

the scene …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

White Rock and how this city inspires the creative process.” The panel will consist of three local artists: Serge Dube, Nicoletta Baumeister and Leonard Wells. Dube, well known internationally for his extensive body of work, has been painting since 1983 with various media including watercolour, oil and acrylics, in styles ranging from realism to impressionism. Baumeister was educated at Langara College and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. A graduate with honours, she has also studied gold and silver smithing in Germany. Since opening her studio in 1986, she has worked primarily in watercolour chalk and pastel. Wells and his brother Leslie are both master carvers from the Semiahmoo First Nation and had the privilege of apprenticing with renowned Haida carver Robert Davidson. Among their most recent work is Under the Double Eagle and Elder Moon, a double-sided piece installed at the roundabout at 20 Avenue and Rotary Way in South Surrey.

Bright Star The Community Arts Council of White Rock and District’s Get Reel Film Series presents Jane Campion’s Bright Star, tonight (Feb. 17) at 7 p.m. at the Criterion 4 Theatre, 2381 King George Hwy. One of the most highly praised films at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, Bright Star tells the tragic but intensely passionate story of the real-life love affair between 19th century Romantic poet John Keats and his young musenext-door, Fanny Brawne. The title of the film – a return to the screen from Campion, noted for The Piano – is taken from a love poem to Brawne that Keats wrote in the flyleaf of his copy of the Complete Works of William Shakespeare. Contributed photo Bright Star Jane Campion’s Bright features Star plays tonight. outstanding performances by Abbie Cornish (Stop-Loss, Elizabeth: The Golden Age) as Brawne and Ben Whishaw (I’m Not There, Perfume, Brideshead Revisited) as Keats. Tickets ($11) are available at the door or at the Community Arts Council box office at 604-536-8333.

Comedic hypnotist Hypnotist Jason James (also known in musical circles as stellar guitarist Jason Buie) will take comedic hypnosis to the next level in his one-man show this Saturday (Feb. 20) at 8 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion Crescent Branch, 2643 128 St. James is no stranger to the world of stage hypnotism – his father, world-famous hypnotist Robert Mesmer, taught him the craft firsthand. His fast-paced combination of audience participation, music, sound effects, dialogue and hysterical situations has received rave reviews from clubs, corporate conventions, schools and universities across Canada and the U.S. Although his show has been described as “a first-class evening of outrageous entertainment,” he is known for guiding his onstage volunteers through hilarious scenarios with “care and respect.” Tickets are $10 at the door.

Five Ring Circus Oversaturated with the current Olympic hoopla? The White Rock Social Justice Film Festival is presenting a controversial alternative view of hidden costs of the Winter Games this Friday (Feb 19), 7 p.m. at First United Church, 15385 Semiahmoo Ave. Five Ring Circus: The Untold Story of the Vancouver 2010 Games is a documentary that raises some intriguing questions about the city’s current Olympic fever: while many residents have been excited to welcome the world, others are have been alarmed by what they see as drastic measures and changes happening in their communities. The independent documentary, directed and produced by Conrad Schmidt (who will be at the screening to lead discussion), looks at the social, economic and environmental costs of hosting the Olympic Games and dares to ask the big question – ‘is it worth it?’ Also present as a resource person to help lead discussion will be Phil Le Good, co-producer and journalist for Vancouver Co-operative Radio’s morning show, Wake Up With Co-op.

One of the biggest benefits to becoming a member of the WRSS Chamber of Commerce is networking opportunities, especially at monthly business showcasing events held by the chamber.

Networking, marketing and health plan among benefits for members  from page 20 – is a huge perk that comes with membership. “The employee benefit package – it’s second to none,” Fettinger said. “It is absolutely imperative that new members or new business owners let us come in and do a presentation about that.” Being a part of a 700-plus network of local businesses also means a number of referrals, and according to the WRSS Chamber’s website, last year the office

fielded more than 30,000 inquiries about businesses, services, programs, accommodation and attractions on the Peninsula. And with the WRSS Chamber of Commerce recently becoming a member of the B.C.

Promoting Business & Tourism on the Semiahmoo Peninsula The White Rock & South Surrey Chamber of Commerce initiates programs and networking events, works closely with local government and forms committees dedicated to addressing issues of interest and concern that affect its members and the community.

The Chamber supports a variety of community organizations and events. Our participation ensures the promotion of the community and local business by promoting the Business Excellence Awards, Taste of the Peninsula, Golf Tournament, All Candidates Meetings

and the popular Spirit of the Sea Festival and Regatta. The Chamber office and the Visitor Info Centre at #100 - 15261 Russell Ave. White Rock serves those who are visiting, moving or planning to do business in our community. We operate both a seasonal kiosk and a year-round Visitor Information Centre (VIC) with knowledgeable on-site BC Tourism Travel Counsellors promoting and directing tourists to the interesting sights, great lodgings and wonderful shopping the Peninsula has to offer. The Visitor Info Centre kiosk, by the museum, is open from May long weekend to Thanksgiving and then on weekends only. The Visitor Info Centre at #100 - 15261 Russell Ave. is open year-round.

Membership with B.C. Chamber means stronger voice, more advocacy  from page 22 we can decide if it’s a provincial issue,” Fettinger explained. “We then bring it up to the provincial level through the B.C.

New chamber office brings opportunity for functions, workshops

T

he White Rock & South Surrey Chamber of Commerce made an exciting move earlier this year – into a new office in White Rock. The new facility – located at the corner of Russell Avenue and George Street in White Rock, is nearly twice as big as the chamber’s old location on King George Highway. With approximately 2,000 sq.-ft. dedicated to chamber operations, the new office also includes a large

boardroom and facilities for holding seminars and workshops. “We’re just very excited about it,” said Doug Hart, executive director for the WRSS Chamber of Commerce. “It gives us twice as much space as we had in our previous facility. It’s a key location, central for both White Rock and South Surrey.” Like the chamber’s previous home base, the new office will also act as a visitor information centre for Tourism

BC, in conjunction with the kiosk set up on the promenade at White Rock beach. Last year, between the two informations centres, there were more than 44,000 inquiries from tourists looking for details about the Semiahmoo Peninsula. According to Hart, this year the tourism office and kiosk have been busier than ever, fielding queries from visitors from around the world. Another exciting aspect about the new office is the opportunity for members

and other groups to use the boardroom if they need a place to meet. “The boardroom is going to be available for our members and also for not-for-profit-type organizations who don’t have a boardroom and who would like to use it as a meeting room,” Hart said. “It will be very convenient for us.” The new office is located at #100 15261 Russell Ave., and is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

You’re reminded of it everywhere you go: bobsledder Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Mike McCorkell bobsledder

White Rock bobsledder Mike McCorkell, who is in Whistler as a volunteer forerunner at the Olympic sliding centre, said the death last Friday of Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili came as a “complete, total shock.” McCorkell and his fellow forerunners – who test the bobsled/luge track in advance of competition – did not see Kumaritashvili’s crash in person,

bleeding. On-side resuscitation failed, and he was transported to hospital, where he was pronounced dead. A moment of silence was held during Friday night’s Opening Ceremonies at B.C. Place. Since the crash, the track at the Whistler Sliding Centre has been criticized for being too fast and too difficult. McCorkell has been in Whistler since the beginning of the month, and has  see page 33

Playoff position likely sealed with three games left

Eagles split last two home games Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

With just a handful of games left on the regular-season calendar, the Surrey Eagles all but finalized their playoff position after a win and a loss on home ice last weekend. The Eagles opened the weekend on Friday with a 4-3 loss to the Langley Chiefs, but redeemed themselves two days later, with a 7-0 shellacking of the sad-sack Williams Lake Timberwolves. The Eagles now sit in fifth place in the BC Hockey League’s Coastal Conference, which is where they are likely to stay, considering they are five points back of fourth-place Langley and six up on the sixth-place Nanaimo Clippers. All three clubs have just three games remaining. And though Sunday’s shutout – led by Tyler Morley’s hat-trick performance – was a nice way to end the weekend, Friday’s tilt was still troubling, considering the Birds opened up a 3-0 lead before allowing the Chiefs to storm back with four unanswered markers after that. “We got up 3-0, played really strong, and then we got back into our old ways of trying to stick handle into the zone,” said Surrey head coach Shane Kuss, who watched the game from the press box as he served the first of a three-game suspension. “Langley stuck to their game and eventually we turned it over and handed it to them.” Morley opened the scoring five minutes into the first frame, and goals from

Andrew Wallace and Adam Basford gave the home team a lead with two minutes remaining before the first intermission. With time ticking down, however, Langley’s Brad McBride almost single-handedly erased the advantage, scoring twice in a span of 56 seconds before the horn. Neither team scored in an even second period, but Langley captain Colten Beck tied the game at the 14:13 mark of the third, and Tim Daly won it for the visitors with just two seconds left on the clock. Kuss was less than impressed with the way his team played once they staked themselves to the early lead. “We’ve got to realize that you don’t change the way you play because you’re up 3-0,” he said. “There’s a reason why you’re up and that’s because you’re playing the game smart and simple. “Going into the playoffs, you can’t make those mistakes.” The result Sunday evening at South Surrey Arena was much better, although Williams Lake is not nearly on par with the Chiefs, talent-wise. The Timberwolves have just nine wins in 56 games this season, and are dead-last in the 17-team BCHL. In addition to Morley’s three goals, the Eagles got multi-point performances from Basford, who had a goal and two assists, and Wallace, who had three helpers. Rookie defenceman Riley Sweeney – playing against his old team – also scored and added an assist, and Mike Krgovich  see page 33

Imagine accelerating from 0 to 175 km/h in a mere seven seconds… without an engine. Speed skiing is the fastest non-motorized sport in the world and daredevil athletes from around the globe will gather in Sun Peaks Resort for the 21st Annual Velocity Challenge, March 4 to 7, 2010. The 2010 Subaru Velocity Challenge, presented by Zimmer Autosport, is one of the longest running speed skiing events in the world and the only event of its kind in North America. What began as a grassroots ski race over 20 years ago has become a world renowned FIS World Cup Speed Skiing event. Skiers from 10 countries will converge on Sun Peaks with their 8 foot skis and rubber suits to take on the extremely steep and treacherous Headwalls Speed Skiing Track. The 300 metre course boasts a 55 per cent grade and has proven to be one of the most challenging tracks on the planet.

“While most speed skiing tracks in Europe are smooth and concave allowing racers to see the whole track during their run, the Headwalls Track is convex and has several rolls in it,” says event organizer Adam Earle. “Racers only see the first 50 metres of the track before it falls away. It’s pretty wild when racers hit a blind knoll at 175 km/h; it almost becomes a free fall.” A fantastic spectator event, visitors can purchase a foot passenger ticket for $16 to ride the Sunburst Express Chairlift and watch the racers as they push off the crest of the mountain and race down Headwalls this March. Check out www.velocitychallenge.com for more information, or visit the Sun Peaks Resort website at www.sunpeaksresort.com.

Two of those runs ended in crashes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; nobody was hurt â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but he insists the track itself should not shoulder all the blame. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We saw the replay after, and he was just way too high coming out of the turn, and it looked like he just tried to fix it, but over-corrected and that caused him to

crash,â&#x20AC;? McCorkell surmised. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just a freak thing, a freak accident. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just so unfortunate.â&#x20AC;? McCorkell also went down the track last fall, during a selection camp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The track is faster now than it was then,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been smoothed out a lot.â&#x20AC;? In an effort to curtail the speed of the male lugers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which exceed 120 km/h â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Olympic officials have moved the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

starting position to the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting line, thus shortening the course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were talking to some of the Canadian lugers, and none of them thought it was too dangerous before the accident,â&#x20AC;? McCorkell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really put the track into a bad light â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too dangerous. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very fast, and sometimes you do crash, but more often than not, you come out of it fine. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been scared of it.â&#x20AC;?

Chan stops 31 shots to earn shutout for home team  from page 31 and Brad McGowan also finished with two assists each. Richard Vanderhoek and first-year forward Jamus Lane also scored for the Eagles. Former Surrey Eagles goal-

tender Sean Donnelly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; son of Peninsula singer and nationalanthem extraordinaire Mark Donnelly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was between the pipes for the T-Wolves, and was peppered with 55 shots. Mike Chan earned the shut-

out win for the Eagles, stopping all 31 shots he faced. The win gave the announced crowd of 861 something to cheer about â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Eagles had lost three straight on home ice prior to Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win, and

were just 3-8 at South Surrey Arena since the beginning of December. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) a great way to finish our homestand, great way to get the fans involved,â&#x20AC;? said Surrey blue-liner Josh Pineiro.

Storm qualify for provincials after second-place finish Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

For the second year in a row, the Southridge Storm senior boys finished in second spot at Fraser Valley AA Basketball Championships, after losing 70-59 to Chilliwack’s G.W. Graham Saturday night. Southridge made it to the championship game after wins over the Hope Secondary Mustangs and Mission Roadrunners on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. The Storm still qualify for pro-

vincials – the top three Fraser Valley finishers earned a berth in the B.C. showdown, which runs Feb. 24-27 in Kamloops. Last year, Southridge lost in the Fraser Valley final to Mission, but followed up with a strong provincial touranment and finished third in B.C. – the best-ever showing for the South Surrey private school. Feb. 10, the Storm edged the Mustangs 66-58 in the opening round, and led by as many as 17 points before foul trouble for the

Peninsula crew allowed Hope to claw back to within striking distance. Some timely scoring in the fourth quarter allowed Southridge to secure the victory. Jordan Yee – who was named a tournament first-team all-star – scored 20 points against Hope, while adding seven assists and eight rebounds; and Jag Dhatt, who battled injuries in the late stages of the season, had a monster game with 20 points and a team-high 18 rebounds.

Jacob Andreou chipped in with eight points and eight boards. In addition to Yee’s all-star nod, teammate Royce Holmes earned second-team honours.

Junior boys For the first time in school history, the Southridge Storm junior boys basketball team will vie for a Fraser Valley championship, after making it out of the Surrey zone last week. The Storm qualified for the tour-

nament after a come-from-behind win over Holy Cross last Wednesday. The victory – which required a fourth-quarter comeback, with Holy Cross up by eight late in the contest – ensured Southridge of at least a sixth-place finish - good enough to qualify for Fraser Valley’s. After beating Holy Cross, Southridge was defeated by White Rock Christian Academy – who also advance – in the fifth-place tilt. Fraser Valley’s began Monday.

OBITUARIES DIERKER, KURT June 23, 1923 - Feb 11, 2010

CORMODE, Henry Daniel Alexander April 15, 1940 - Feb 10, 2010 Alex was a gentle man who died as he lived, quietly after many recent health challenges. He was born and raised on a farm near Acme AB where his parents (Jaqueline and Art Cormode, now deceased) grew grain and raised cattle. After attending small schools, he graduated from Acme High School and attended the U of A studying Engineering, graduating with his masters in 1964. He was always at heart an Albertan. He made his living as a Chemical Engineer, PEng, working for Cominco in Trail, Kimberly, Fort St. James, Pine Point and with Agrium in Saskatoon for 26 years. He retired in 2005 and moved to White Rock where he happily lived. Alex loved listening to people and was always learning about history, genealogy and rocks, anything and everything. He loved travelling, golfing, curling and lawn bowling. (This came to him late in life, but said it was the game for him - people and cost wise.) He loved playing duplicate bridge and belonged to the Saskatoon gourmet bridge club, but the love of his life was his family. He is survived by his wife Janet and daughter Liisa, sons Art and Tom (Renee) and his beloved grandchildren - Teaghan and Georgia. His cousins Dick Groundwater (Susan) and daughter Sarah, Lee Hogan (Mike) and Judy Carvell (Gerry) and sons Tyson (Erin) and Bryce (Bobby). He had many a delightful time with his two brothers-in-law & sistersin-law, John & June Tynan and Peter (deceased) and Joan Tynan. A celebration of Alex’s life will be on Saturday, Feb. 20th, 2010, at 1:30pm at St. Mark’s Anglican Church, 12953 20th Ave, Surrey. In the summer time there will be a memorial service and burial of his ashes in Acme, AB. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Diabetes Association, P.O. Box 26331 Stn Brm B, Toronto, ON, M7Y 4R1 or the Roulston Museum, Box 1067 Carstairs, AB, T0M 0N0

Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre (604)536-6522 www.victorymemorialpark.com

After 86 faithful years, the good Lord took our husband and father on a nonstop flight to Heaven on February 11, 2010. Left to remember this wonderful man are wife of 58 years, Annemarie, son Glen, daughter-in-law Janice, and the sparkle of Opa’s eyes for the last nine years, grandson Colin. Born and raised in Germany, Kurt and Annemarie immigrated to Canada, the country he loved, in 1954. They originally settled in Nakusp, B.C. before moving to Vancouver 3 years later. An accountant by trade, Kurt worked in plywood plants during his working life. The family spent almost 30 years in North Delta before finally moving to White Rock in 1994. Kurt was a very humble, caring man who loved God, his family and his fellow human being. He enjoyed reading, walking, and travelling with Annemarie to such wonderful countries as Fiji, Australia, and China. Kurt took special pride in helping others and giving those he met a special smile. The family wishes to thank the special people who looked after his needs during his last years. A Celebration of Kurt’s life will take place at Mount Olive Lutheran Church, 2350 148th St., Surrey on Monday, February 22, 2010 at 11:00 AM with Pastor Peter Hanson officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation will be greatly appreciated.

PIPER It is with deepest sorrow we annouce the sudden passing of Jeff Piper February 7, 2010. Jeffery was born September 10, 1977 and battled a rare form of epilepsy from infancy. He is survived by his mother Shirley MacDonald (Platten), stepfather John MacDonald, brother Kerry, father Frank Piper, grandmother Marion Platten and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Jeff was a big Hockey fan and bowled for the Special Olympics. He graduated from Brookswood Sr. in 1996 and resided at Aster House in Surrey. Much love and gratitude to Jill and to all the staff for their loving care and kindness. We will miss your smile, your cuddles and lazy afternoons watching your favourite cartoons together. When the next bell rings, you will have your wings. Heart to heart, sweet child of ours. A celebration of Jeff’s life will be held at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre 14831 28th Ave. February 17th, at 2:00 pm.
