Forefathers’ photo flap at White Rock city hall Melissa Smalley Staff Reporter
The removal of old photographs from the walls at White Rock city hall ignited concern and confusion last week, prompting the mayor to halt city staff ’s redecorating efforts. Mayor Catherine Ferguson returned to city hall Friday after being on vacation to discover a number of photographs of past mayors and
councils had been removed from the walls of council chambers and the outer hallway. When she asked city staff about the photos, Ferguson said, she was told they would be put into storage. “I’m not happy about it,” Ferguson told Peace Arch News Monday morning. “I think it’s extremely disrespectful to those people who have served and built the city. To have (the
photos) taken all down and to have no dialogue with council and myself is inappropriate. The direction never should have been given.” However, Coun. Lynne Sinclair said she was not surprised to learn the photos were taken down, citing an email she had received last week from City of White Rock communications officer Colleen Pepper advising council of see page 4
Fallout continues from comments in a Peace Arch News article.
White Rock council has slapped the wrist of Mayor Catherine Ferguson, in connection with public criticism of a staff member last summer. A motion to declare “inappropriate” Ferguson’s actions and statements – made in response to the removal of photographs from the city hall foyer and council chambers last August – passed Monday with all but the mayor in favour. “To remain quiet would’ve been wrong in this circumstance,” Coun. Grant Meyer said Monday. “Someone needlessly lost their job.” The controversy began last summer, after Fer-
guson expressed concern to Peace Arch photographs. Later, Fathers said Pepper’s News that photographs of past elected email had said nothing about the photos coming down in council chambers. officials had been removed from city hall walls while she was on holiday.

Monitoring the tracks
More slides Alex Browne Staff Reporter
More mudslides swept down from the Ocean Park bluff Friday and Saturday, leading to suspension of Amtrak’s Seattle to Vancouver service through the weekend until Monday morning. The latest slides also prompted longtime rail critic Don Pitcairn to write to federal Transport Minister Chuck Strahl with concerns that Burlington Northern Santa Fe is continuing to run freight trains at times when mudslides have cancelled passenger service. BNSF corporate communications representative Gus Melonas confirmed a major mudslide Friday afternoon in the vicinity of 123 Street and 22 Avenue covered the tracks to a depth of four feet over a 30-foot section. Although it was cleared quickly by a rail-mounted excavation vehicle, Amtrak passenger service continued to be suspended until 8:30 a.m. Monday. A further slide Saturday morning almost a mile away at the east end of 131 Street covered the line to a depth of three feet over some 20 feet of the line, Melonas said, and did result in suspension of freight service for some two hours while

cairn and other critics have blamed for a recent slide. Melonas said a geo-technical company retained by the railway is continuing to study the stability of the entire slope. He also defended the company’s decision to allow freight trains to

operate while passenger service was halted, noting the two types of trains use “differently designed equipment.” “Passenger cars are not as heavily manufactured as freight cars – they’re streamlined and much
lighter,” Melonas said. “Freight trains (function) at different speeds and under different operating conditions.” Melonas also said the railway continues to monitor its line, and see page 2

Falcon talks criminals A proposal to track the assets of criminals – and make them prove they purchased the assets legally – is part of a new public safety plan unveiled by provincial Liberal leadership hopeful Kevin Falcon. In his latest potential policy statement – designed to show what he would do if chosen by the party next month to be premier – the Surrey-Cloverdale MLA and Ocean Park resident suggested the province could partner with police forces to target proceeds of crime over $10,000. Local governments, Falcon said, could receive half of all assets seized under proceeds-of-crime legislation to support policing.

“We want to make criminals prove that they purchased their assets with legal money,” Falcon announced Tuesday. “If they can’t they should lose those assets and the funds should go toward helping honest taxpayers pay for policing in their communities.” Falcon’s plan also calls for consideration of more prosecutors to speed up gang-related cases and convictions; pursuing mandatory minimum sentences with the federal government for restricted and prohibited firearms charges, and giving police rights to seize vehicles in which such weapons have been found.

Storm drain emptied over cliff from page 1 study slope and roadbed conditions, particularly during periods of heavy rainfall when mudslides could be expected. “Given the angle of the slope adjacent to our trackage, and with heavy saturation and weight from above, (slides are) no surprise.” Melonas said conditions on the BNSF line in Canada this winter have been “worse than we’ve seen in the last few years – but in the States it’s been better.” There have been no significant incidents due to slide impact, he said, adding the company’s approach is to anticipate problems at this time of year. “We’re proactive, not reactive,” he said. “We take protective measures.” But it’s an explanation that doesn’t satisfy Pitcairn, who said in his letter to Strahl that he was alarmed freight trains on the line – which routinely carry dangerous chemicals such as chlorine – continued even during a slide that was sufficiently serious to carry large trees down with it. One of those trees ruptured a City of Surrey storm drain line which, Pitcairn said, poured “thousands of gallons of water onto the slide-damaged slope for several days before repairs were eventually completed.” Pitcairn asked Strahl to review the Railway Safety Act to ensure that freight shipments of hazardous materials are cancelled for at least as long as passenger service during slide clean-up, and also that all rail service be

cancelled in areas where unrepaired storm drains cause “uncontrolled water release and ongoing slope saturation.” “They’ll suspend the Amtrak, but they’ll still allow freight trains to rumble through,” Pitcairn told Peace Arch News. Surrey drainage manager Carrie Baron said a tree felled by the slide on Friday afternoon took out a 21-inch storm drain pipe on a city easement between two properties. “Where it’s flat (this kind of drain) is underground, but a lot of the pipe was above ground,” she said, adding the destroyed drain had transitioned to a 12-inch pipe designed to take water all the way to a ditch beyond the tracks at the bottom of the hill. Baron said that until a pump and threeinch discharge hose could be installed to safely reroute the water to the ditch by late Saturday morning, “all the neighbourhood water was pouring over the top of the cliff.” Ironically, the city was aware of the problem just prior to the slide, Baron said. “A neighbour noticed a tree leaning and contacted a consultant, who alerted the city,” she said. “We had people out there before the slide happened, but just after they’d taken their first look, it came down.” Over the weekend a new large pipe storm drain line was quickly engineered, and threaded through trees down the slope south of the slide area, Baron added. “It’s not an easy place to lay pipe,” she said.

news Trial date to determine dog’s future set for July
City on hook for cost of keeping pit bull Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter
The City of White Rock will have to wait until at least July to learn if a pit bull that attacked and killed a small dog on Marine Drive last November can be euthanized. In the meantime, costs of holding the dog continue to mount, and it is “highly unlikely” those dollars will ever be recovered from the owner. “She’s not an owner of property,
which makes it difficult for us,” Paul Stanton, the city’s director of development services, said last week. “If it were an owner of property, we could put it on the property taxes. Otherwise, it’s like having somebody owing you a debt then trying to claim it, collect it.” The city impounded the at-large female Staffordshire Nov. 22, after it killed a 12-pound yorkie-poodle cross belonging to Doug Fenwick
and Debra Ogilvie. The attack was not the first incident involving the pit bull in White Rock. It was, however, the dog’s first-known kill. Stanton told Peace Arch News in an earlier interview that numerous complaints were logged during 2008 and 2009 concerning the dog roaming unchecked and attacks on other dogs. It was ordered removed from White Rock in spring 2009.
Stanton said a July trial date was set during a Dec. 22 appearance in Surrey Provincial Court. Under the BC Community Charter, the city has authority to hold the dog until the court orders it destroyed or the matter is otherwise resolved. The cost of holding the pit bull is “less than $20 a day,” city manager Peggy Clark said. By the July court date, the bill will be about $4,500. Stanton said that while city records
list a woman as the dog’s owner, a man has since stepped forward claiming ownership. The man took a licence out for the dog in Surrey four days after the attack, Stanton said, noting “he’s claiming ownership of the dog after the incident.” The claim does not change the city’s position, Stanton said. “Irregardless… we’re following the requirements of the legislation and doing what we have to do.”
Crash injures two
Injured senior airlifted A 70-year-old woman was airlifted to hospital with undetermined injuries Tuesday morning following a dramatic collision in South Surrey. Impact of the crash, reported just before 9:30 a.m., spun the senior’s Chrysler New Yorker into a light standard at the corner of 16 Avenue and Amble Greene Boulevard. The pole crushed the driver-side door. Preliminary police reports indicate the New Yorker was westbound on 16 Avenue when it was rear-ended by a Ford Expedition. The Ford, driven by a woman in her 40s, came to rest upside-down in a nearby yard, after crashing through a bus stop, shrubbery and a fence. The driver was taken to hospital with suspected head injuries. At press time, RCMP reported both South Surrey women were expected to recover. Investigation is ongoing. - Tracy Holmes

Former employee had pleaded guilty to taking more than $400,000
Softball BC bookkeeper sentenced to three years Tracy Holmes Staff reporter
A woman with “serious psychological problems” who pleaded guilty to stealing more than $400,000 from Softball BC has been sentenced to three years in prison for the crime. In pronouncing the sentence in Surrey Provincial Court, Judge Peder Gulbransen said Karline Frances Elliott’s conduct “deviates substantially from the norms of society, which require trust in so many aspects of our lives, and the harm caused was substantial.” The sentence, rendered Oct. 26, was posted to the provincial court website this week. According to the reasons for sentence, Elliott, 58, was hired by Softball BC in 2000 and worked at its South Surrey headquarters until Sept. 21, 2009. She took the money over a 2½-year period, while working as the organization’s accountant and bookkeeper, and lost all of it gambling, court documents state. In sentencing, Gulbransen considered several factors, including Elliott’s abusive childhood and husband, diagnoses of post-
traumatic stress disorder and obsessive- take the money undetected, he writes. compulsive disorder and her moderate to The theft started in the 2006-’07 fiscal year, when Elliott transferred $500 into her own severe agoraphobia. “She has trouble sleeping, and for a large account.

The misappropriation was detected by the Gulbransen notes Elliott – now a Port Hardy resident – had almost exclusive access organization’s vice-president of finance, who to the organization’s financial resources, noticed “serious discrepancies” in financial obtained from registration and membership reports created by Elliott. In an email to the fees. She was also the only one with online VP, Elliott described herself as “a gambling access to the funds, which enabled her to addict and a thief,” Gulbransen writes.
The judge notes Softball BC spent about $62,000 investigating the theft. He also notes Elliott was co-operative with the organization and police, and expressed “serious regrets.” Gulbransen describes the theft as a callous breach of trust that had a “crushing impact” on the association’s finances. “There were 173 deliberate acts of theft… the accused engaged in deliberate and obviously successful deceit in concealing the theft,” he writes. While “one cannot help but be sympathetic to the accused’s personal circumstances… she always knew, in my view, that what she did was wrong.” In addition to the prison term, Elliott was ordered to submit DNA samples, and pay restitution in the amount of $406,731.01. Gulbransen noted Elliott does not have the funds, “but I don’t think your former employer should be put to the further expense of a civil action, and in the remote chance you come into some money you will have to pay it to them.” A suit was filed against Elliott last spring.

They were asked a series of direct questions, such as: Have you been a victim of physical or sexual abuse? Do you know a victim? Do you use drugs? What ones? How often? The questions were part of an anonymous survey given to about 400 students throughout the Lower Mainland – and the results, says RCMP Sgt. Jet Sunner, might come as a shock. On Jan. 15, those results will be revealed at a youth forum presented by Team Izzat, a group of police officers and university students who volunteer their time to connect with youth through sports and education. Six Surrey students who were initially enlisted in high school have been researching the topics of child exploitation and drugs for the past three years. Now in university, the students, who also interviewed experts, police and other experts for their study, will give a presentation on their findings. “It was very, very interesting. I think it will wake up a lot of people,” said Sunner, spokesperson for Team Izzat. “Kids are not feeling safe. Why are kids being victimized sexually in the Lower Mainland in 2011? This should not happen at all.” Also featured at the event is former NHL player Sheldon Kennedy. The former hockey star came forward as a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of his coach, Graham James. In 2006, Kennedy released

Jet Sunner is organizing a youth forum at the Bell Centre on Jan. 15. an autobiography that detailed his abuse, as well as his battle with cocaine addiction. He now speaks regularly to raise awareness for sexual abuse victims. “People don’t realize what happens when you do get hooked on drugs,” says Sunner. “He ties both of them together and shows how one can make the
other worse.” While he feels the forum is most appropriate for kids 10 and older, Sunner said his own eight-year-old will be there. “I’m letting parents decide. I want people to bring their families,” said Sunner. “My goal is that anyone that goes there and listens will never

urrey-Cloverdale MLA Kevin Falcon is quick to dismiss critics of his teachers’ merit-pay proposal – to be enacted should the BC Liberals appoint him premier next month – as unclear on his concept. Most distinctly, he suggests, his plan is not true “merit pay,” basing an individual’s salary on performance. Rather, it would provide cash bonuses to teachers deemed exceptional. Potato, pot-ah-to. While this distinction seems a tenuous sticking point, Falcon is learned enough to realize the onus is on him to explain how his suggestion – which he says is borrowed from Australia’s left-leaning government, though it coincides with debates among the U.S.’s right-and-righter parties – would work in practice. The question is clear. How does one determine which teachers are more deserving of our tax dollars? One common answer is measuring students’ academic improvement. But while rising grade-point averages in one term would suggest greater learning, what about subsequent terms – after the cream has already risen? Pity the pocketbook of the teacher who starts the year off with a bunch of Grade A all-stars, with nowhere to go but stay the course or (gulp) drop. How about student and parent feedback? Sure we’d see a lot of kowtowing by some. But would this really result in better classrooms? Clocking teachers’ extracurricular hours? Not necessarily an accurate measurement of quality teaching, and could be akin to measuring fine dining by the pound. In defending his plan, Falcon talks about his experiences as a student, and being encouraged by a teacher who got him into history and, subsequently, politics. How would this have been measurable, had there been a like-minded premier in Falcon’s day? Perhaps others have fond memories of teachers who made such a difference – the educator who instilled an appreciation of the arts, the counsellor who nurtured athletic prowess, the principal who saw through a teenager’s bravado and averted a life in crime or a suicide attempt. Until a well-thought-out argument is put forth, teachers’ remuneration should continue to be negotiated in more traditional ways, with exceptional teachers compensated through the knowledge of a job well done and a pat on the back. And if Falcon has indeed uncovered a way to measure merit, please encourage him to say how. Otherwise, it reads merely like a ploy to woo support from the party’s conservative hardliners, a vote we suspect Falcon might already take for granted.

97 responding fish farms in five years, whether closed containment is feasible or not. Still, hearings were held in affected communities and debate ensued. Clark is proposing these touring committees become the norm, and whoever wins should follow through with that as well. Kevin Falcon caused a stir last week with his suggestion for merit pay for teachers. Falcon cites Australia’s program, with bonus payments offered outside union contracts. Here in B.C., teachers load up on postgraduate degrees because they guarantee wage increases. Whether these master’s and PhD qualifications actually improve classroom performance is difficult to say, since the union fights any effort to assess teacher performance. Again, whoever replaces Campbell should proceed with this idea. It’s similar to what the Obama administration in the U.S. has embraced, despite political backlash from its unionized teachers. This week the B.C. NDP contest starts to take shape, after the entry of three fringe candidates who haven’t done much to address the policy vacuum at the heart of the anti-Carole James revolt. Just as the BC Liberals got arrogant after nearly a decade in power, the NDP grew dangerously dependent on the antiCampbell theme that brought them back to life. If the political upheaval of 2010 results in new leaders for both parties actually committing to serious debate about ideas, it will be worth it.

End of an era for park users
Editor: Dear Joanne Charles and fellow Semiahmoo Band members, After reading some letters and articles in the PAN, as well as hearing what some people have to say about the fact that you have chosen to erect a fence around your land in order to protect the public, I feel a need to apologize to you. I have been grateful to have been allowed unfettered access to your land over the years, bringing many family members, visitors from my homeland and, of course, my trusty dog. In light of recent developments, I am somewhat ashamed to admit to being a part of the demographic that has used your land as a place for my dog to run free and chase her ball. But I did, and was always thankful for having the freedom to do so. Thank you for allowing us to use your land, and I am sorry that so many have abused the privilege and am deeply ashamed and baffled by the minority of people who cannot comprehend that what they considered to be “their park” is actually private land, and still refuse to respect the wishes of the landowners. Many thanks for the wonderful years of allowing us to have use of such a beautiful ocean-front piece of your land, for our summer barbecues, car shows, outdoor cinema, frisbee, and of course, playing catch with family pets. B. Jakob, White Rock Q Inasmuch as it appears that land in question is the private property of the First Nations group, there should be no argument that it is their prerogative to deny public use to canines or humans. A possible solution would be to open up the public beach/walkway area in White Rock to dogs and their owners. I was down there over the holidays and there were a fair number of dogs visiting although signs clearly prohibited them. There is some concern about canine feces being left there and I realize that this is a risk to public hygiene. There are a number of city employees or contractors already in the area supervising parking violations, so I don’t think there is any reason for them not to issue tickets to hygiene violators or more to the point their owner/handlers. My suspicion is that a fine in the neighbourhood of $1,000 would discourage violation. For the record, I am a dog owner who walks his dog twice a day, but until now, never on either the First Nations land nor White Rock beach. Bob Holden, White Rock Q Re: Troubled times ahead over fence, Dec. 31 letters. Why is everyone putting blame on White Rock? Semiamoo Park is in Surrey, not White Rock. Art Rose, White Rock
Editor: Re: So what if my faith is wrong, Dec. 24 letters. When I read the above-noted letter, I was disappointed the editor printed a letter in which Albert Einstein is misquoted, leaving the reader under the false impression that Einstein believes in God. Einstein did not believe in God. You can find his expression of this opinion in a 10-second Internet search of his quotes. Referring to those who deliberately take his quotes out of context, Einstein said: “It was, of course, a lie what you
read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.” By printing the writer’s letter, you are complicit in perpetuating the religious myth that Einstein believed in God. I find it ironic that the faith of some religious followers is so weak that they resort to misrepresenting an atheist’s view to support their superstitions, but I would hope that as an editor, you would resist such misleading letters.

Vandalism puts safety at risk Editor: While having a lovely, sunny walk on a recent Sunday afternoon, we stopped at the washroom at the pier. The phone had been completely torn apart and left in pieces on the ground. Could someone please tell me what kind of pleasure people might get out of this wanton destruction? That phone was probably the most important in the City of White Rock for emergencies on or near the beach. Diane Hill, Surrey

Pat MacPherson, a volunteer at Sources food bank, sorts food in the troubled days leading up to Christmas.
Happy endings for those in need Editor: Re: Food bank shortage strikes Peninsula, Dec. 22. Sources White Rock/South Surrey Food Bank is deeply grateful to the community that has sustained it for 29 years. The slow trickle of both food and monetary donations that produced a growing concern a week before Christmas, changed to a heavy flow filling the shelves and corners of the food bank as well as its coffers. By the end of 2010, the atmosphere at the food bank had dramatically changed to one filled with great relief and gratitude. The final food bank tallies were surprising and amazing. During the month of December, 65 of our ongoing volunteers – along with an additional 49 seasonal volunteers – worked a total of 1,357 hours. By the end of the month, food donations totalled 74,438 pounds – or 37.21 tons – while monetary donations, which surpassed the food bank’s goal of $150,000, reached a grand total of $160,242. The generosity of this community never ceases to amaze us. Giving comes in many ways including the arduous and continual work of volunteers, the generous and ongoing sharing of food and funds, as well as the diverse efforts of groups to undertake events to generate support for the food bank. The commitment and generosity of this community is truly astounding! These individual and collective contributions are made not only during December, but throughout the entire year –year after year after year – often by the same people.” Sources White Rock/South Surrey Food Bank extends
its appreciation and gratitude to each and everyone in this community who has contributed to the food bank. All donations play critical roles in sustaining and maintaining food bank operations and service delivery to the community of White Rock and South Surrey. Caring and responsive to the needs of its local food bank and the residents it serves, the White Rock/South Surrey Community – for the 29th year - has rallied to provide support that will continue to sustain the food bank for a large portion of the coming year. Ruth Chitty, Sources White Rock/S. Surrey Food Bank Q The best way for a community to move forward is to give back. Surrey is definitely moving forward, as proved by the tremendous generosity of local residents, businesses and organizations this holiday season. Putting aside busy lives and economic concerns, hundreds of people unselfishly came forward to donate to others. Large teams of volunteers picked up items, registered families, and sorted toys to keep things running smoothly. Thanks to this support and hard work, 1,800 families received gifts, food vouchers, clothing and household items that made their holiday brighter and happier. On behalf of the board and staff of the Surrey Christmas Bureau, we express our appreciation to everyone who so freely gave donations, volunteered precious time and provided services. As we pack up the 2010 toy depot, we send a giant “thank you” to all. K.C. Gilroy, Surrey Christmas Bureau

Twin sister dies after fire
Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter
Two recent local fires – including one that killed a man last week – were not intentionally set, officials have concluded. But exactly how a lamp that triggered a Jan. 4 fire got knocked over remains unclear. “I don’t know if (the victim) was the cause of it or not,” Surrey Fire Services’ deputy Chief John Caviglia said Monday. “It might have been him and he just didn’t realize he’d done this.” Emergency crews were alerted to the fire, in the 13000-block of 64 Avenue, around 10 a.m. by a neighbour who spotted smoke MEDIATION COLLABORATIVE LAW A mature way to resolve conﬂict

coming from the home’s second floor. The neighbour pounded on the front door, but got no response. The victim, who had been home alone, was pulled from the house unresponsive, and confirmed deceased that same day. Caviglia said investigators are “quite sure” a knocked-over diva lamp – a bowl with oil and a cotton-batton wick – caused the blaze. Caviglia said he could not release the victim’s name or confirm the actual cause of death, other than to say it appeared to be a result of the fire. Regarding a Dec. 17 fire that
destroyed a heritage home in South Surrey, Caviglia said damage was so severe, investigators were unable to pinpoint the cause beyond that it was electricalbased. “We suspect it was caused from an electrical pump that was on the outside of the house, but there’s been a lot of damage, very severe damage,” Caviglia said. “That’s what our suspicions are. We can’t say for certain.” Caviglia noted investigators needed a machine to help sift through the rubble. Six people and a dog escaped the early morning blaze at the house, located at 13951 Crescent Rd.

news Reyat sentenced for perjury after hiding details
Bomb maker jailed for lies at Air India trial Jeff Nagel Black Press
Air India bomb maker Inderjit Singh Reyat has been sentenced to another nine years in prison for lying in the 2005 mass murder trial that acquitted two alleged co-conspirators. Prosecutors had called for a sentence close to the maximum of 14 years in prison for perjury, while his defence argued for no more than two years. Reyat, a Surrey resident, will serve another seven years and seven months because he has been given credit for the 17 months he’s been held in custody. He’s the only person ever convicted and jailed in Canada in connection with the 1985 bombings that killed 329 passengers on Air India flight 182 over the Atlantic Ocean and two baggage handlers at a Tokyo airport. Reyat lied 19 times under oath in the trial in an attempt to hide his knowledge of the conspiracy. That trial ended with insufficient evidence to convict Ripudaman Singh Malik, the millionaire founder of the Surrey Khalsa School and the Surrey-based Khalsa Credit Union, and co-accused Ajaib Singh Bagri, a sawmill worker from Kamloops. It was Canada’s longest and most expensive trial at $130 million and
Inderjit Singh Reyat has received a nine-year sentence for perjury. 347 days of court time. Reyat served 10 years for manslaughter for the deaths of the Tokyo baggage handlers. That bomb had been destined for a different Air India flight but detonated on the ground the same day flight 182 went down. Reyat was later charged with 329 counts of manslaughter for the flight 182 bombing, but pleaded guilty to one count of manslaughter and one count of aiding in the construction of a bomb, and was sentenced to five more years. He served both sentences in full. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Mark McEwan handed down Reyat’s perjury sentence Friday morning.

Counterattack stats held up in defence of changes
New penalties deter impaired drivers Jeff Nagel Black Press
Police caught 43 per cent fewer drinking drivers in the second half of the December Counterattack campaign in the Lower Mainland. And RCMP Traffic Services Supt. Norm Gaumont is crediting the province’s tougher roadside penalties for dissuading motorists who’ve consumed alcohol from getting behind the wheel. “That’s a marked decrease,” he said. “What we’re hearing from our members on the road is a lot of people are now talking about this and have designated drivers.” A total of 427 drivers stopped by police were given prohibitions, suspensions or were charged for impaired driving in the Lower Mainland during the December
Counterattack period. That included 132 who got 90-day driving prohibitions. Another 92 got three-day prohibitions and their vehicles were impounded. Some of those penalized were in the warn range between a blood-alcohol level of 0.05 and the legal limit of 0.08, however, detailed statistics weren’t available. Tellingly, however, just six drivers during the Counterattack campaign were charged criminally for impaired driving – down sharply from a year ago. Defence lawyers contend the most serious impaired drivers well over 0.08 are escaping without a criminal conviction or record, enjoying a virtual decriminalization of impaired driving under the stiffer administrative penalties that took effect in September.
Gaumont rejects that criticism, noting a repeat offender can now have his or her car towed for 30 days, be given a 90-day prohibition, be forced to use an ignition interlock at a cost of $1,400plus per year and take a $700 course to return to the road. “That is not a minor consequence,” he said. “We’re hoping to change their driving behaviour immediately instead of them going back next weekend and drinking and driving again.” Pursuing criminal charges can typically mean a twoyear wait through the justice system, he added. By not charging a drunk driver, he said, an officer saves about 20 hours of time that would normally be spent investigating, filing paperwork and testifying in court.
“Those 20 hours can now be spent on the road getting more impaireds off the road.” Criminal charges still proceed in cases of injury crashes and more serious repeat offenders, he said. The new system has also been accused of making police officers not just investigators but also judges and executioners, dispensing justice at the roadside. Gaumont said drivers who doubt the accuracy of their roadside test can ask for a second test on a different machine and anyone penalized can appeal. Lower Mainland traffic officers intend to shift more of their focus to distracted drivers who continue to talk, text or use hand-held devices in violation of B.C.’s now yearold ban.

White Rock resident tells of hope and devastation in Haiti
Registered nurse Michele Goodsell (shown centre working on a patient) spent two weeks in Haiti volunteering at rehab clinics and orphanages with Team Canada Healing Hands.
efore Michele Goodsell boarded a plane to Haiti in November, she spent time speaking with other people who had been there on volunteer trips to prepare herself for her first visit to the impoverished country. However, the registered nurse said the devastation she encountered was far worse than she could have imagined. “When you say Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, I don’t know what that really means to the average person,” Goodsell said a month after returning home to White Rock. “It’s horrific the way the people are living.” Many Haitians are Michele Goodsell still living in tent cities – shelter that was supposed to be temporary after a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck one year ago today (Wednesday). Those who don’t live in a tent are typically housed in modest
10-by-10-foot structures. “As much as I hate to say it, you kind of get used to the smell of burning garbage, just filth everywhere. And seeing people who have passed on the side of the road, amongst garbage,” Goodsell recalled. In September, Goodsell spoke with Peace Arch News about her plans to visit Haiti with a group called Team Canada Healing Hands, providing rehabilitation care for children and adults. The group visited several orphanages over the two-week span they were in Haiti, treating spinal cord injuries, amputations and wound care, as well as providing health education to the locals. They also had the opportunity to do home-care visits, in teams of five healthcare professionals and an interpreter, which Goodsell said
was the most rewarding part of the trip. She recalled treating one young girl with cerebral palsy – among a host of other health issues – and said the experience was an eye-opener to the possibilities of how efficient healthcare could be in Canada. “We went into the home with the intent of doing as much as we could for this little girl,” she said, noting they spent about three or four hours treating her. “She came out probably having the equivalent of seven weeks of home care. “It was so rewarding as a nurse. That’s what we should be doing in Canada. It takes going to a Third World country to figure out what works.” Goodsell notes the trip wasn’t all smooth sailing, however. The group arrived in Haiti just in time for
Hurricane Tomas to hit, and were also there for the initial stages of a cholera outbreak, which Goodsell said was limited to specific tent city cholera zones. The political unrest resulting from suspected voter fraud during a presidential election that took place that month was more of a cause for concern for the group. “There were manifestations occurring during the time we were there, so we had to keep our ear to the ground and see if it was safe for us to travel to certain parts of the country,” she said. Despite the dangers, Goodsell said she will definitely go back to Haiti, and is planning on joining Healing Hands when the group returns next November. She’s also encouraging others to get involved, not just by supporting the country financially, but by finding ways to help Haitians to help themselves. “If people are going to give money, try to give to organizations that support the thought process of empowering Haitians to learn and rebuild on their own,” she said. “They’re starting to rebuild, but other areas are starting to fall behind. But they’re hopeful and optimistic about the future.”

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You are on the verge of doing some unusual things. You are audacious and what you are undertaking will give you a lot of confidence in yourself. Try to take care of your health.
You need to realize just how much other people value you. You are capable of making others respect you more. Planet Jupiter brings you many situations that will be favourable to you on all levels.
(April 20-May 19)
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You are headed towards situations where you will need to know what is important to you. You must not allow other people to take what is owed to you — this doesn’t just apply to financial matters.
You are capable of better asserting what you wish to attain on a professional level. This is really great for you. Be precise in everything you have to say.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.21)
(May 21-June 20) You place a lot of value on your emotional life. The Moon causes everything related to your home to become very important to you. You’re beginning to understand this now.
Planet Mars brings you the ability to pass into action, especially in the material aspect of your life. You are sure of yourself and you are headed towards things that will be truly extraordinary.

When an unexpected offer for just that—from a dashing millionaire, no less—falls into her lap, Becky embarks on a comic and poignant joyride that may change everything forever. An Arts Club Theatre Company production Starring Deborah Williams of Mom’s the Word $25 - $43
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
(June 21-July 22) You must avoid putting yourself in situations where you have the feeling you are being used. Planet Uranus causes you to have a great sense of personal honour. You don’t want to live in a way that has no meaning for you.
This week brings you some big surprises. Planet Neptune causes you to experience a great deal of hesitation about everything. You don’t like this situation but you are called on to think about many subjects that previously had little impact on your life.
Pa t u o l il h C r e t Win
You feel close to your friends at the moment. You need to communicate with them. Be sincere and insist that they be as well. This is truly essential and will be possible to achieve.
You need to be realistic, as you are tending to avoid just about any situation where there might be a lack of openness and honesty. You are distancing yourself from certain people who could involve you in things you would dislike.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
(Feb. 19-March 20)
You are rethinking everything concerning your material life. You can better assert your ideas. Be careful not to involve yourself in financial matters that might be harmful to you.
You are pressed for time and this could be harmful to you at the moment. You must carefully analyze everything that is happening around you. It’s possible that you will consider changing several things about the way you manage your money.

Snowbirds to return The Snowbirds are coming (back) to town. The City of White Rock announced Monday the high-flying demonstration team will take to the skies over the seaside city Wednesday, July 27, for the 2011 Snowbirds Fly for CHILD event. “It’s an incredible opportunity for our community to see the Snowbirds while supporting the CHILD Foundation,” said Mayor Catherine Ferguson. The Snowbirds, comprising members of the Canadian Forces, are ambassadors for the Children with Intestinal and Liver Disorders Foundation, which raises funds for medical research into Crohn’s Disease, ulcerative colitis and liver disorders in children. The team performed over White Rock for the cause in 2004, 2005 and 2008.
The upcoming July show – the exact time of the performance has not been determined – is hoped to raise further awareness of, and support for, CHILD. “Many of the Snowbirds are parents with young families and sympathize with the challenges faced by the families of children with intestinal and liver disorders,” said Capt. Marc Velasco. “It’s our hope that we can raise support for this worthy cause while inspiring the imagination and hope in our youth.” Event co-ordinator Scott Harrold, a White Rock resident and CHILD Foundation director, said the show will be a “huge and very inspiring event.” The goal is to surpass all past records of attendance and raise CHILD awareness, Harrold said. Attendance at previous shows was estimated at upwards of 40,000.

Creative chef follows heart S heila Cox just can’t seem to stay out of the kitchen, ever since she experienced her first taste of the culinary industry at the age of 15 while working in a family-owned Italian restaurant. On most days, the White Rock Kristyl Clark mother of two can be found behind the counter of Sheila’s Deli and Catering in South Surrey, a thriving mom-’n’-popstyle eatery/catering business that has been a dream come true for the creative foodie, who was born and raised in central Florida. “I tried to pursue other avenues, but food has always called me back,” said Sheila who enrolled in a business program at Florida State University back in 1989. “I’m not Italian but I must have some old Italian grandma in my DNA, because I’ve always loved feeding people – it just feels good to have that instant gratitude.” It was while on vacation to the Cayman Islands 15 years ago that Sheila met Batty, a bar manager from Canada who shared her passion and would later become her husband and father to their two boys, Caleb and Brady, as well as her business partner. The couple lived and worked on the Cayman Islands for 10 years before deciding to make a home and name for themselves in White Rock. Upon moving to the Peninsula, Sheila got a job as sous chef and then head chef at Cielo’s Oyster and Tapas Bar, while Batty worked as a server and bartender at local restaurants. In 2009, they decided to open their own deli and catering company, Sheila’s Deli and Catering, which was nominated for the Best New Business by the Chamber of Commerce in its first year. Last summer, the couple took over the kitchen at the newly renovated Ocean Beach Lounge.
“It’s definitely been busy, but we love what we do so that makes all the difference,” said Sheila. “Whenever we do get some downtime, it’s spent as family time.” In this week’s edition of Local Flavours, Sheila shares a recipe for Sweet Chili Salmon, a West Coast dish that is sure to tantalize taste buds.
local flavours Sweet chili salmon Ingredients: 6 oz salmon fillet 4 oz sweet chili sauce 1 oz soy sauce 1 oz lemon juice 2 oz white wine 2 tbsp. fresh basil, chiffonade shiitake mushrooms 2-3 heads of baby bok choy salt and white pepper 2 tsp. garlic, chopped 2 tsp. ginger, minced sesame oil
Instructions: Season the salmon with the salt and white pepper. Heat small amount of canola oil in a nonstick-skillet. Add salmon to hot pan and quickly sear on both sides. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes per side. Remove salmon from pan. Add white wine and lemon juice and cook for one minute, stirring. Add sweet chile, soy sauce and basil. Bring to a simmer and reduce until starting to thicken. In another pan, heat small amount of canola oil. When hot, quickly add ginger and garlic and saute for one minute. Add mushrooms and saute for another minute or two. Add bok choy and cook, stirring until bok choy is tender, but crisp. Place vegetables on plate, top with salmon and spoon sauce over it all.

Health, Mind & Body Lose weight and feel great for spring 2011
erhaps no new year’s resolution is as common as resolving to slim down. After a holiday season of overindulgence and social gatherings, it’s no surprise that calorie counting and fat grams plague the minds of many once the festivities end. For those looking to shed extra pounds for spring , here are a few of the latest breakthrough weight-loss solutions that have popped up on the Peninsula in recent years promising big results. DNA testing for weight loss If you’re having difficulty losing those last 10 pounds, or have been successful in losing weight in the past, but always seem to gain it back, it may be because you’re not on the right diet, according to Dr. Jeff Rostvig of Pure Pharmacy and Wellness Centre who says “choosing the perfect weight-loss program for you may be as simple as a DNA test.” Last month, Pure became one the first medical clinics in the Lower Mainland to offer Pathway Fit, a breakthrough weight-loss solution which looks at how the food you consume interacts with your genes. After a complimentary consultation, clients make an appointment for a saliva test, which is sent to a lab in California to be analyzed. Three weeks later, participants receive a detailed report, providing them with the power to understand their metabolism, eating behaviours and response to exercise, as well as the best ways to reach and maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle. “Anyone who is concerned about their weight should take a serious look at this, it’s medical CSI, said Rostvig. see page 21

SureSlim Wellness Clinic In the vast landscape that makes up dieting and weight loss, the SureSlim Wellness Clinic guarantees a unique program that promises real food, healthy, tasty meals and a manageable plan to help you lose on average 10 to 15 pounds per month. “We teach people how to feed their body the correct way by eating the correct nutritional valued foods that their specific body needs,” said Helen Janos, a co-owner of the South Surrey location and participant of the program. “It’s not about dieting, it’s about learning how to lose the weight correctly so you can keep it off. There is nothing invasive or unrealistic. You aren’t buying shakes, bars, pre-packaged foods or injections – You are learning to feed your body the correct way by balancing certain hormones in the body that affect body weight.” To help participants stay motivated and on track, SureSlim holds private weekly weigh-ins and one-on-one meetings with a wellness consultant. “We’re here to listen, be your support system, celebrate your success and motivate you when you need the helping hand,” said Janos.

When stimulated with a laser beam, specific points on the body signal the brain to release endorphins. Increased endorphins reduce production of the stress hormone, cortisol, in turn reducing cravings. When your body is in balance, your cravings will stop. It’s all about helping clients to have stronger willpower, said Semple. “You’ll feel motivated to eat smaller portions, stay away from sweets and increase your level of physical activity.” The laser treatments, which are customized to fit each individual’s needs, include follow up, nutritional guidance and motivational support. Semple said laser therapy is not a diet, but simply a tremendous aid to accelerate the weight loss. “Our unique technology can help to make your lifetime dreams come true.”

The season of self indulgence has come to an end and now many are taking the time to reflect on the past year and look ahead for ways to improve themselves. From a new fitness and diet regime to quitting smoking and learning a foreign language, resolutions are as unique as the individuals who make them. Everyone could benefit from a little help or inspiration now and again to help them achieve their goal, and a new self-help book may be just the ticket. Cathy Jesson, owner of Black Bond Books in South Surrey, said the new year always attracts men and women of all ages to their self help section, which features many new exciting titles for 2011. “There’s always a lot of interest in that area come January,” she said. “People come in for the newest diet books and books to make them feel better inside and out.” A new arrival that Jesson said is flying off the shelves is You and Your Future. “We are having a tough time keeping it in stock as it was our most sought-after book this Christmas,” said Jesson of the first book by Canada’s foremost astrologer, Georgia Nicols. Read through 40 years of detailed forecasts (1985 to 2025), allowing you to predict your future by testing Georgia’s accuracy in reading your past. Another popular title, according to Jesson, is The Book of Awakening: Having The Life You Want By Being Present To The Life You Have. “This is a real beautiful book that is full of things that make you feel good,” she said of the book filled with exercises that will surprise and delight the reader.

making a New Year’s resolution to quit smoking. The idea seems great on New Year’s Eve, but what about the next day, or even the weeks and months after you make that promise? Jesson said she has just the book to help you kick the nicotine habit for good. “Allen Carr’s Easy Way to Stop Smoking is one of our best sellers and it really works,” she said. First published in 1985, Allen Carr’s Easy way to Stop Smoking has been translated into over thirty languages and has been a No. 1 bestseller in 10 countries including UK, Ireland, Russia, Italy, Holland and Germany. In parts of the book industry it’s known simply as “The Magic Book.”

Running for better health With exercise on the minds of many, now is a good time to discover a new fitness program – one that you’re likely to stick with. For those wanting to lose a few pounds, running is one of the easiest, affordable and effective forms of exercise. In addition to weight loss, benefits of running include cardiovascular health, better bone health, improved mood and co-ordination. But before you head for the trails or track, it’s important to be properlyequipped with a good pair of running shoes, according to Lisa Farrow, a manager at Peninsula Runners in White Rock. “Proper footwear is the major piece of the puzzle you’ll need in order to get out there and get going,” said the avid runner. “They’ll protect your bones, joints and muscles by making sure everything is in proper alignment.” As it still gets dark early, Farrow said it’s vital to always wear reflective clothing so you are visible to motorists. “Most running jackets, hats and shoes have a bit of reflective material on them, but if you can add a blinking safety light, that can make a huge difference. Headlights don’t need to be on you for a driver to be able to see you – this way they can see you from a mile away. In both warm and cold weather, dehydration is a very real threat, which is why all runners should recognize and develop a plan of action for avoiding this common problem. Farrow said runners should make sure they’re hydrated throughout the day, not

Lisa Farrow and Tim Lancaster of Peninsula Runners head out for a brisk run. just while hitting the pavement. ”It’s important to teach yourself to drink more water so you are hydrated all the time,” she said. “If you just wait until your run to start drinking water, you’ll just end up with a full bladder, which is not very comfortable.” In addition to a proper pair of running shoes and keeping hydrated, Farrow recommends new runners sign up for a learn-to-run program. “It’s easier to stay motivated when you are running with a group of people,” she said. “Peninsula Runners offer a number of running and walking clinics designed for all experience levels.”

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
OCEAN PARK MASSAGE THERAPY CLINIC
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.
GORDON W. BROWN
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.

New study stacked deck against Valley trains: critic Jeff Nagel
Would like to thank our sponsors and supporters for the success of our 28th Annu Annual Celebrate a Life
Advocates of a modern light rail line connecting Surrey to Chilliwack say the province’s new study recommending expanded bus service never gave trains an honest chance. Rail For The Valley founder Jon Buker accuses the transportation ministry-led study of “extreme bias” by using “grossly inflated” cost estimates to undermine the case for a light rail service running on the old Interurban corridor. He said the study is what he expected – one “designed simply to discredit light rail and push Victoria’s agenda for rapid bus implementation for the Fraser Valley.” The Strategic Review of Transit in the Fraser Valley estimated it would cost $112 million a year to launch a 98-kilometre heavy rail commuter line – akin to the West Coast Express – from Surrey to Chilliwack or $176 million annually for a light rail line that could serve more passengers. It said the region instead needs a $90-million-a-year investment in local and regional buses. That would be a big jump from the $11 million a year currently spent on transit service in the Fraser Valley Regional District.
Title Sponsor: File photo
Critics with Rail For The Valley are upset with a recent transit study. Buker said a key flaw in the study is it based all its rail costs on a West Coast Express-type heavy rail service, which requires significant double-tracking and other rail infrastructure upgrades, particularly in Surrey. Consultants extrapolated the higher costs in that area throughout the route, he said, and also used them in preparing estimates for light rail, which wouldn’t require as much upgrading. The review found track upgrading costs would add up to $18.6 million per kilometre. A study commissioned last year by Rail For The Valley and an earlier consultant’s report for the City of Surrey had both found a light rail service could be
launched for much less – $5 to $6 million per kilometre – on the existing tracks. Buker also contends the provincial study low-balled the number of passengers who would take trains. Better bus service is a good idea, Buker said, but he noted just one per cent of Valley residents now take buses and improving ridership will require a “light rail backbone” across the region. Critics of West Coast Expresstype trains say they tend to serve commuters going to Vancouver and fail to connect local centres. That’s an important distinction because 80 per cent of all Valley trips are by residents travelling in their own community.

A MESSAGE TO ALL RESIDENTS & BUSINESS OWNERS
Do you have a storm drain on or in front of your property? It is important to keep it clear, especially during melting conditions. Blocked storm drains may result in excess accumulation of water along the road area, a situation that could become dangerous if it subsequently freezes. It also helps reduce the potential for ﬂooding of adjacent properties depending on the extent of the blockage along with the amount of melting snow and rain fall.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula
Totems, Orcas and Mariners lose in Sunday qualifying round
Three out of RCMP contention Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter
After struggling at last week’s Legal Beagle Tournament in Coquitlam, the White Rock Christian Academy Warriors are looking to get their groove back this week at the tournament they’ve owned for more than a decade. But though the Warriors senior boys – who’ve won 10 of the last 12 Surrey RCMP Basketball Classic tourneys – weren’t scheduled to tip off at the annual all-Surrey showdown until Tuesday after press deadline, three other South Surrey teams began play Sunday, with all three suffering qualifying-round losses. The Elgin Park Orcas played the first game of the tournament Sunday at Fleetwood Park Secondary, losing 56-49 to Guildford Park. The Semiahmoo Totems nearly pulled off a Day 1 victory, but in the end fell 87-84 to Johnston Heights. Rounding out the day were the Earl Marriott Mariners, who dropped a 69-54 tilt to L.A. Matheson Mustangs at Enver Creek Secondary. “It was very disappointing. I thought we played well at times – we rebounded well – and we led by four with five minutes to go, and then things kind of just fell apart,” said Earl Marriott coach Sean Stewart. “It was a morning game, too, and I think it was just a product of us being a little tired, and not having played much basketball over the past six weeks or so – I think we’ve only had four, five games.” All three squads were bumped to Pool B after the losses. Like WRCA, the Peninsula’s fifth entry into the tournament, Southridge Storm, did not play until Tuesday, when they tipped off against the Frank Hurt Hornets. Despite being a double-A school up against triple-A squads, Storm head coach Steve Anderson was confident his team would be able to compete with any team in the tournament. “I think we’ve improved a lot since the beginning of the year,” he said. “We don’t go in with any expectations except to compete at a high enough level to be in every game. If we do that, we can play with anybody, regardless of what level they are.” WRCA – which lost by 17 points to the Gleneagle Talons in the first round of the Legal Beagle – was set to battle Sullivan Heights in the first round. “To say it lightly, we underperformed,” WRCA coach John Dykstra said of his team’s loss to Gleneagle last week. “We turned the ball over… we didn’t do the little things right.” The Warriors rebounded after the loss to the Talons, however, beating W.J. Mouat. In their third game, they lost by two points to Kitsilano. “It was close. With 36 seconds left, down by

strong performance this week. “I hope there’s some pressure on them, and I hope they (embrace) it,” Dykstra said. The tournament continues all week, with the championship game slated for Saturday.
For several seasons, the Holy Cross Crusaders have had their run at the Surrey Firefighters Classic halted by the Elgin Park Orcas. So when the perennial provincial powerhouse team from South Surrey was upset in the preliminary round, Holy Cross took full advantage, topping the host Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers 79-42 Saturday evening in Cloverdale to win the all-Surrey senior girls high school basketball tournament ❝We were always for the first time since 2002. getting “For the last few knocked out, years, it always seemed we and playing for third would be playing Elgin Park in the place.❞ semifinal round,” Steve Beauchamp said Crusaders Holy Cross head coach Steve Beauchamp. “We were always getting knocked out, and playing for third place. “And last year, we finally got to the final, and we gave them a good game, but lost again.” The Orcas were favoured for a sixth straight Firefighters title last week, but in their second game of the round-robin portion of the competition, were upended 56-49 by a Panthers team playing in their home gymnasium at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary. Elgin Park ended up third, after finishing the tournament with an 89-39 win over Fleetwood Park. Winners of their three-team group with a pair of wins, Lord Tweedsmuir advanced to the tournament final for the first-time ever. Holy Cross, meanwhile, easily won their group in preliminary play, starting with a 70-26 victory over the Panorama Ridge Thunder, then finishing up with an easy 83-27 triumph over the Fleetwood Park Dragons. “We had played Tweedsmuir see page 34

Mariners top Tamanawis in Ladder division from page 31 in the semifinals last year,” recalled Beauchamp. “And a lot of our girls know their players through soccer and other (community sports). We knew they’re a good team. “We were ready to play Elgin Park, but when Tweedsmuir won, our team just said ‘we know Elgin Park was good, maybe Tweedsmuir is better.’” Led by the efforts of tournament Most Valuable Player Tessa Beauchamp, and Best Defensive Player award winner Jessica Villadiego, the Crusaders completed their three-game run through the six-team Axe Division of the tournament with a 37-point victory over Tweedsmuir. Cara Bagry of Lord Tweedsmuir won the Most Inspirational Player honour,
while Jasmine Sidhu of Panorama Ridge was the threepoint shooting champion. Elgin’s Sandy Hsu and Stacey Graham were both named to the tournament all-star team, with Hsu also named Elgin’s scholarship recipient.

U.S. trip about team-building
Storm play two in Oregon The Southridge Storm senior boys basketball team returned home Saturday from a fourday trek to Oregon, which saw them win one of two exhibition games against American competition. Southridge won its first game, by six points over Salem Academy, and followed that with a 10-point loss in Portland, to Marshall High School. In addition to the pair of games, the Storm squad also took in a University of Washington basketball game. Aside from getting some court time against competition they wouldn’t normally get the chance to face, Southridge coach Steve Anderson said the trip is also a good teambuilding exercise. “That’s the main reason we do it,” he said.

Back-to-back losses put end to five-game winning streak
Eagles drop pair to Vees Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter
The surging Surrey Eagles – winners of five straight games, and nine of the last 11 – finally hit a road block last weekend, with a pair of losses to the Interior Conference-leading Penticton Vees. On Friday at South Okanagan Events Centre, the Vees edged the Eagles 4-3, and followed up Saturday – after a long night of travel – with a 5-1 win over the Birds at South Surrey Arena. The losses were the first for the Eagles since dropping a 3-1 decision to the league-leading Powell River Kings on Dec. 10. Penticton’s Joey Benik scored two goals in Friday’s game – the first of the game, and also the game-winner midway through the third period – while Riley Sweeney, Tyler
Morley, who also had an assist, and Jeff Vanderlugt replied for the Eagles. Surrey held a 3-2 lead after 40 minutes, before the Vees potted two goals – one from Curtis Loik, plus a power-play marker from Benik – in a four-minute span to take the lead. Twenty-fours hours later on home ice, the Eagles looked like the more sluggish and travel-weary of the two squads, especially by game’s end; Penticton scored three times in

Saturday night. The Eagles hit the road this weekend for a three-games-in-threenights run that sees the team play in Powell River Friday, Nanaimo on Saturday night, and Cowichan Valley on Sunday. The Island road swing is the first of two straight for Surrey, which heads to Victoria and Port Alberni the following weekend. Surrey’s next home tilt isn’t until Sunday, Jan. 23 when they host the Langley Chiefs.

WRSSBA Training Centre 14600 20th Ave. The training course is sponsored by the White Rock/South Surrey Baseball Assoc. and is a mandatory requirement for a position as umpire within the league.
The philosophy of Challenger Baseball is very simple: “Have fun playing baseball, in a safe environment that caters to the very special needs of children with cognitive or physical disabilities”. The fun and safety is enhanced by going in to the community to ﬁnd teenagers and young adults to act as “Buddies” to these players. Buddies push wheelchairs or lead players around the base paths, provide a mentoring role to their player, and, most importantly, provide the safety component for the players during games. By having Buddies “one on one” with each player, parents can now relax, enjoy the game, and get a well deserved “respite” hour.

Loving Memory of Wendy Dunn
May 29, 1957 - Jan. 12, 2007
I carry your heart with me. I carry it in my heart. I am never without it. Anywhere I go, you go, my dear, and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling.
Here is the deepest secret nobody knows. Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart. I carry your heart. I carry it in my heart.
We love and miss you forever. 7
