Decade-old heritage policy yet to be used
Trees not on record Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter
A White Rock man is considering legal action after returning home last week to find an “absolutely perfect” Douglas fir on his property damaged by excavation. “They dug three feet into the base of that tree, which means they have basically wiped out all the feeder roots,” Barry Belec said as he surveyed the aftermath. “This whole thing is tragic. Every arbourist that’s ever looked at it has said… it’s as close as possible to a perfect specimen.” The tree stands on the edge of Belec’s Buena Vista Avenue property. About 130 feet tall and more than a century old, its trunk abuts a fence marking the property line. It is also among four on the Buena Vista Avenue Tracy Holmes photo property that Barry Belec seeks Belec has to protect trees. asked the city to consider for heritage status. Belec said he discovered the damage around 12:30 p.m. May 31. While the City of White Rock’s arbourist attended the site that day, director of operations Rob Thompson said the matter is a civil one. “We don’t have any authority to be involved,” Thompson said Thursday, noting the tree does not fall under the jurisdiction of the tree bylaw. see page 4

Main Street. The driver stopped “within two feet” of me, he said. More recently – and closer to home – he was almost hit as he crossed 18 Avenue in the pedestrian-activated crosswalk at Southmere Crescent. The driver, who stopped “barely a metre from me,” had a toddler in the backseat and a cellphone in her hand, Pereira said. He believes the next close call would have been his last. “I’m not a superstitious person, but I believe my mother took the third hit… took my place,” he said. “This has to stop.” Pereira has written to South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale MP Russ Hiebert to ask for change, and is encouraging others – including friends and relatives in Australia, India and Toronto – to follow suit. Even if the effort simply inspires a few drivers to make a change, it will help, he said. “There’s carnage going on out there… in spite of the laws,” he said. “The next person hit might be somebody’s child or mother.”

news School infestation discovered last fall
EMS hopeful rat tale comes to a close Tracy Holmes Staff Reporters
Students at Earl Marriott Secondary are sharing the South Surrey school with uninvited visitors this year – rats. Identified in the 15751 16 Ave. building last fall, the rodents became a growing concern in the spring, school district spokesman Doug Strachan confirmed Monday. Initial strategies to address the problem “appeared to do the trick,” but had to be repeated around March, and then ramped up in late April-early May, when a larger problem was identified, Strachan said. “There’s been progress. There’s fewer being caught or seen now,” he said. “Everything that can be done is being done at this point.”
According to information posted on the school website last month, officials are working with a pest-control company, the district’s facilities and health and safety departments, and Fraser Health to address the problem. Parents are aware of the issue and have raised no concerns, Strachan added. “There’s been positive feedback by the parents that it’s being managed appropriately.” The strategy for addressing the problem to date has included an increase in pest-control visits to the site, from two or three times a week to at least five times a week. As well, an extra custodian has been brought in to clean garbage outside the building; lunch hour garbage is being removed within 30 minutes; pea gravel is being placed
around exterior walls to prevent rodent entry; and affected interior spaces are being sanitized on weekends. Regular meetings with Fraser Health officials have determined the school has “the best cleanliness rating for a building of our size,” principal Peter Johnston’s online letter states. Both the cafeteria and home economics facilities have been deemed safe, it adds – a point Fraser Health spokesman Roy Thorpe-Dorward confirmed. Health inspectors were last at the school May 13, Thorpe-Dorward said. “It was a very good inspection and they received a low hazard rating,” he said. “They were doing all the right things.” As long as an increase in the problem isn’t
noted, the health authority will next inspect the school in early September, he said. Strachan said the principal has also reported positive response from the students, who are “really getting” the need to not leave food and trash in the hallways. Strachan noted rodent infestations are not unusual in buildings where there is a large amount of food. In his seven years with the district, he is aware of only three or four schools in which the problem was to a degree that pest control needed to be brought in. In most cases, the issue is mice, he said. “Considering we have 125 schools, it’s not that often,” Strachan said. Student safety is “first and foremost,” he noted.
Jail sought for former officer

Canucks fever makes its way to White Rock Farmers Market – which returned for its summer season last week – where Steve Choi incorporates the Vancouver team’s logo on a butter dish Sunday, in time for the second week of the Stanley Cup final. (Game 4 is played tonight on Boston Bruins’ home ice.)
A sentencing hearing for a former police officer who pleaded guilty last year to trafficking marijuana has been stymied by a disagreement between lawyers arguing the case. The arrest of White Rock resident Peter Hodson followed a two-month investigation into allegations that a Vancouver constable was selling marijuana on- and off-duty. The sentencing hearing got underway in Vancouver Provincial Court last week, but defence counsel Vincent Michaels said it was adjourned so he and Crown Joe Bellows could “have discussions” over what issues should be considered by the senPeter Hodson tencing judge. If a resolution is not reached, a hearing on the disputed facts may be necessary, Michaels said. The matter is due back in court June 17. While Bellows is arguing for a minimum three-year jail term, Michaels said he will suggest a “lengthy” conditional sentence order for Hodson, to be served in the community. – Tracy Holmes
Federal deficit on track to disappear in three years: Conservatives
Critics await cuts after ‘jobs and growth’ budget Alex Browne Staff Reporter
It’s a case of fiscal deja vu. The new federal budget is much the same as the Conservatives’ preelection ‘Jobs and Growth’ budget, South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale MP Russ Hiebert admits. But he’s hoping there’s a few additions that will please taxpayers in the $281.4-billion package – including a promise the federal deficit will evaporate as early as 2014-15. “We’re now on track to eliminate our deficit one year earlier than planned,” Hiebert said in a statement prepared shortly after the budget was released Monday by Finance Minister Jim Flaherty. “That means, in three years time, we’ll have a balanced budget and then we can reduce taxes even further for hard-working Canadian families.” Hiebert pointed out the Conservative government’s plan calls for a reduction in overall program
spending by five per cent – which is estimated to produce $4 billion in annual savings starting next fiscal year. But critics, such as NDP Opposition leader Jack Layton, have faulted the budget for giving no specifics of program cuts – noting the Conservatives have previously claimed civil-service attrition would take care of much of the reduction in spending. Tax giveaways to profitable corporations as a function of targeted job creation have also come under fire from the NDP. Aside from compensation to Quebec for implementing the HST, the only other budget measure to gain Opposition approval is a $400-million extension of the ecoEnergy program, which encourages home renovations that reduce electricity and heating costs, something the NDP had requested in earlier budget discussions. Local NDP candidate Susan Keep-
ing, who polled second highest in Hiebert’s riding in last month’s election, said the budget is “disappointing.” “On a personal level, when I look at this budget, I see a five per cent reduction, but nobody says where this is coming from. That makes me uncomfortable – MP Russ Hiebert people should be demanding to know what is going to be cut. The government, as our representatives, needs to be open and honest about this.” Keeping said she believes that civil-service attrition will not be a factor in the Conservatives’ reduction in spending. “If they’re doing a quick five per cent cut, they are not going to be waiting for people to move on or retire,” she said.
Keeping, a White Rock resident and executive director of the Newton Advocacy Group Society, said she is particularly concerned about impacts on social services. “I have heard they are looking at what the Liberals did when they came into office and wanted to reduce the deficit. We all know how much that hurt health, education and social services.” Keeping said the recent Homeless Count in the Lower Mainland indicated social services are managing to make some headway in helping society’s poorest. “When cuts come, we may lose the headway we’ve gained,” she warned. But Hiebert noted the new budget includes increases to transfer payments for health care and education in B.C. The health-care component will rise to almost $3.8 billion, an increase of $216 million over last year, while the Canada Social Transfer, which funds edu-
cation and housing, now stands at $1.5 billion – a rise of $349 million since 2005-’06. Surrey Board of Trade CEO Anita Huberman said that while the new budget offers “no surprises” – it is still, like the pre-election budget, “good news for business.” “What we’ve always wanted is for them to restore the budget balance – to reduce debt so that there is a balanced budget, and we’re hopeful they can do that by 2014-15,” she said. “We want to ensure the economy is competitive and that we’re not raising taxes for business, and this includes only a minimal increase in business taxes. “The biggest challenge for the federal government is to restrain their program spending while not compromising social-service programs. The Surrey Board of Trade is serious about not compromising those programs, which are all part and parcel of a healthy economy.”

Oh, how far we’ve come e’ve come a long way, baby. The huge crowds that have gathered at downtown viewing sites to watch the Vancouver Canucks’ drive to win their first Stanley Cup have been celebratory and wellbehaved. No matter that they’re crammed onto narrow city blocks straining to see what they can on distant big screen monitors. The surrounding municipalities have also jumped on board, multiplying the sites as the series moved to Boston for games three and four. Surrey, Burnaby, Abbotsford and Richmond all set up big screens for large gatherings of fans to soak in the Stanley Cup vibe. It’s human nature to share the company of others at monumental occasions, be they happy ones, like a victory in the Stanley Cup or the arrival of a new year; or tragic, like the 9-11 terror attacks or the assassination of a beloved world leader. Most world-class cities have some sort of easily accessible location to host huge gatherings of people: New York has Central Park; Paris has the Champs de Mars below the Eiffel Tower, London has Hyde Park, Berlin has the wide boulevards and parks around the Brandenburg Gate. Limited space and short-sighted urban design have left Vancouver without such a venue. That absence was a contributing factor to the 1994 Stanley Cup riot, when post-game crowds ran amok downtown because they had no place to go, and the ensuing chaos left a black mark on the city’s reputation. But the lessons learned from that experience were put to good use during the 2010 Winter Olympics, when organizers created satellite gathering sites to serve the crowds seeking some Olympic buzz. It worked. A good time was had by all. That spirit has fueled the Stanley Cup street party, and was only slightly (and temporarily, we trust) dampened after the Bruins’ 8-1 drubbing of the Canucks on Monday night. The addition of suburban sites has spread the party atmosphere around the Metro Vancouver region. The lack of stories on the nightly news about stabbings and liquor seizures at these sites are testimony to how well they’ve been managed and how far the region has really come since ’94. And if the home team can hold up its end of the bargain, there might be a whole lot more worth celebrating in the next few days.

114 responding Donald Trump and look at people’s birth certificates, but the Yale are a Sto:lo band. They would have been chased out of there a long time ago if they weren’t.” In the treaty debate, Simpson put it to Aboriginal Relations Minister Mary Polak that the federal and provincial governments have resorted to a “firstpast-the-post” system to force progress on treaties. He said the tiny Yale community gets a huge advantage by completing a treaty, while some Sto:lo bands remain at an early stage of negotiations and still others aren’t in treaty talks. Polak cited a section that is now standard in modern treaties. It protects the constitutional rights of other aboriginals where a court upholds a claim to Yale territory, which they will soon own as fee-simple property. Polak insisted the Yale treaty will ease tensions in the disputed fishing sites, where violent incidents have taken place. She argued that exclusive access to the main areas of dispute was long ago included in the Yale’s original reserves. The treaty will provide a process for temporary access by other people, native and non-native. We will see if she is right, perhaps as early as this summer. There are two regions of B.C. where the encroachment of European settlers led to shooting wars with aboriginal people. One was the Cariboo-Chilcotin and the other was the Fraser Canyon.

Lack of logic in parking plans Editor: Re: Five Corners parking rules to stay, June 3. I am continually amazed at the knee-jerk, kids-fighting-in-thesandbox approach that White Rock council has regarding parking. I have been a taxpayer in White Rock for 14 years and, for the same length of time, have been frustrated by the varied and ever-changing parking decisions. When I lived on Roper Street, my driveway was frequently blocked by vehicles from the apartment building across the street. I often had to call the bylaw department just to be able to leave my home. A ticket was never issued, unlike their approach on the beach. Parking at the apartment was insufficient and, as such, residents claimed they had no option. The homes on Roper could not get out of driveways, have space for visitors to park or allow their children out to play, with cars turning in driveways. White Rock’s response? Change the bylaw to three-day maximum and paint ridiculous lines on the roadway – a sheer waste of taxpayer money. So now we have a situation of people parking vehicles long-term, moving them every three days or so. This has been a godsend for the employees of Peace Arch Hospital, who now use the surrounding residential streets to park. Take a walk up Merklin; there is nary a single open spot, as various hospital-clad employees make their way from their vehicles to work, and the enormous pay lot north of 16 Avenue remains vacant. I have had to put cement blocks on my yard to prevent such parking on the side streets. So, there’s a three-day limit anywhere in the city, but if I want to run into town to see the naturopath, go for sushi or spend some money in my city, I am limited to one hour? I am astounded at the logic and reasoning behind any of the decisions made in White Rock. Here’s an idea, perhaps we should publish the residential addresses of all White Rock council and park our cars in front of their homes for three days at a time. The present attitude White Rock has regarding parking diminishes enjoyment of home life for residents and hurts local business, whether at the beach or uptown. This is what we voted for? Lisa Hodgetts, White Rock
Bad taste over horse meat Editor: Recently, the Food Network’s Top Chef Canada program featured a dish with horse meat. I thought this chosen ingredient would undoubtedly stir the pot – not so much for calling the kettle black but more to incite a feeding frenzy of debate – but it didn’t.
Top Chef Canada’s rationale was that the particular episode was inspired by the cuisine de France. However, the cook-off took place in Canada, with Canadian ingredients – in this case, some noble horse that used to be someone’s beloved pet. And in the end, the ratings probably increased, sadly. My only question is why? Why judge a chef on his/her ability to cook something so foreign not only to our country but to our palate? Is it truly necessary to weed out less-worthy chefs via horse meat? Do such ingredients truly reveal the master? It’s not so much the ingredient that disturbs me; rather, it’s the reason behind it. To blame it on French cuisine being the challenge, so therefore we must forge on, is simply weak. It sends a message that there was no thought there, not one person on the production side had the will power to say, wait, we don’t have to do it just because Chef Gordon Ramsay did it. The lack of critical and independent thinking is beyond scary. I mean, what’s on next week’s
menu? Cats and dogs to celebrate some restaurants in Malaysia? And why stop there? For the ultimate cook-off ,why not just go for it: Cannibalism to celebrate areas of the world that still eat that crazy meat, man. Talk about bad taste personified. Jill Tunbridge, Surrey
Business backs six-lane bridge Editor: There has been a great deal of concern over the last six months that there was to be a change in the government view on the solution to replacing or refurbishing of the 74-year-old Pattullo Bridge connecting Surrey with New Westminster. In the fall of 2010, it was learned the Department of Transportation had asked TransLink to review its plans for the crossing and investigate whether refurbishing the span would be a satisfactory
alternative to building a new bridge. For quite a long time now, it appeared there was no alternative to replacement being considered, and when the request came to light, there was considerable concern that a less-than-satisfactory conclusion would be decided, i.e. not to replace the bridge. Subsequently, TransLink has announced the only viable solution would be to replace the bridge. However there is still some concern that they may opt for a four-lane span rather than the six-lane structure that many agree is the appropriate solution to current and future needs. There is still some discussion as to how the bridge would be paid for, so the Surrey Board of Trade can wait until an overall funding position for TransLink is determined before taking a position on that. The Surrey Board of Trade, as Surrey’s business organization, endorses and supports the construction of a new, six-lane bridge to replace the old span. Anita Patil Huberman, Surrey Board of Trade

Homosexuality is not a ‘choice’ Editor: Re: Intolerance not akin to bullying, June 1 letters. I read with disgust the disrespect and ignorance expressed by letter-writer Mike Schouten toward the gay community’s attempts at education within the community. Words like “the physical and mental perils that come with living a homosexual lifestyle” and “their choice to practise a completely unnatural lifestyle” are not only bigoted but are dangerous and misleading statements, which do nothing to educate our youth – and many adults, for that matter. Homosexuality is not a “choice”; it is a sexual identity. Skin colour is not a choice. Abortion is a choice. Marriage is a choice. And if you believe that a heterosexual lifestyle does not come with physical and mental perils, just ask a victim of domestic violence or a broken family. Schouten needs to break away from his close-minded and mean-spirited view of the world, and learn not to “bully” those who are different than he is. He’d be doing his children a service at the same time. And the rest of us wouldn’t have to listen to his sordid opinions. B. Lister, White Rock
Labelling the victims I found Mike Schouten’s letter to be offensive, and I’m disappointed with Peace Arch News for granting him a soapbox on which to promote his misguided bigotry. The bullying of youth based on sexual orientation is a serious problem in our society. It is reprehensible to attempt to distort this issue and label the victims as bullies, for merely standing up for themselves. Intolerance is, in fact, akin to bullying when that
intolerance is expressed publicly, along with a call to action to others of like mind. It is obvious to most of us that homosexuality is neither a lifestyle nor an ideology – and it certainly not a choice. This fact is apparently lost on Schouten. What bothers me most is his claim to parent his children to treat everyone with respect and avoid bullying. I would like this to be true, but it seems improbable given the opinion conveyed in his letter. He suggests he has some knowledge of the “physical and mental perils” of homosexuality. The greatest peril is certainly to endure the prejudice and harassment of an ignorant minority who continue to discriminate against them. Fortunately this minority is shrinking in our increasingly enlightened society. Rob Walter, Surrey
A simple question I respect the fact that Mike Shouten is entitled to his opinions. Indeed, I’m a strong advocate of the “I may disagree with what you say, but I will defend you to the death for your right to say it” school of thought. I do, however, grow weary of hearing people like Shouten perpetuate the patently false notion that the “homosexual lifestyle” is a choice. It is not, and I can prove it by asking Schouten – or anyone else who spouts this nonsense – a simple question. Since one’s sexuality and gender preference are significant parts of one’s personality, the “choice” to be straight or not must surely be a momentous and thus, memorable event. Therefore, Mr. Shouten, my question to you is this: How old were you when you consciously made the choice to be straight? Nancy Glover, Surrey

Suggested topics for the discussion include the resources and services that help make living more affordable on the Peninsula; how neighbours share resources, and how the community welcomes newcomers. The forum will also examine the opportunities for volunteerism, reducing the gap between rich and poor, and the opportunities for the community to share food and meals. Multiculturalism and diversity will also be examined, as well as the potential for interaction and sharing among neighbours.

Local group holds workshops for women on money matters
Education priceless for Financial Divas Hannah Sutherland
ecognizing that finances can be a confusing – if not intimidating – subject for some, a number of female professionals have joined forces to empower local women with financial knowledge. The South Surrey/White Rock Financial Divas not only help publish a free quarterly magazine on money matters – a collaboration with other Financial Diva chapters – but also hold monthly seminars in the community to educate women about everything from estate planning to home selling and purchasing. The local chapter of the nonprofit organization is run by a group of sponsors representing various financial fields, including real estate, accounting, home staging, and debt and bankruptcy services. Jen Estrada, who brings expertise from her work as a mortgage broker, said women of all ages and backgrounds are invited to the free seminars, held every third Thursday (except July and August) at Semiahmoo Library. “It’s an open forum for women Hannah Sutherland photo to ask questions in a nonthreatening environment,” Estrada Kirstin Carley and Jen Estrada are sponsors of South Surrey Financial Divas, a non-profit group that publishes a quarterly magazine and hosts monthly workshops to educate women about finances. said.

easy to understand, allowing those attending to make well-informed financial decisions, she added. “It’s good for them to know what’s going on.” Up to 20 people are invited to sit in, Estrada said, but the groups have had as few as just three to four people. “It’s meant to be a small, intimate meet up.” Carley has seen firsthand how much of an impact such sessions can have. One of her clients, a single mother, had been going through a divorce and career issues upon attending Financial Divas meetings. “She had never had a handle on her finances – she did not care for finance,” Carley said. “Once (her husband) was gone, she was left with not knowing where to start and what to do.” That woman is now in a new career and financially stable, and – in a recent meeting with Carley – became teary eyed when reflecting on the accomplishments. “Now she’s holding herself much higher and (is) excited about the changes instead of being fearful,” she said. “It makes me feel really good.” The more knowledge people have, the more confident they become, Carley said, which is why it’s never too late to learn. “I think people procrastinate about things they don’t understand, and that can create fear. If you let something grow into a bigger problem, it gets harder to solve.” Local women wanting to learn more about finances can start with the South Surrey/White Rock Financial Diva’s next workshop June 16 at 7 p.m., called It’s Not Rocket Science. “It’s an investment class for women who don’t like investment classes,” Carley said.

Library patrons thanked Those visiting White Rock Library last Friday were treated to some goodies – including cookies, coffee and trays of fruit – as part of the branch’s Customer Appreciation Day. A table of refreshments, as well as a special prize draw, welcomed all who stepped into the 15342 Buena Vista building June 3. “It’s just to show our patrons how much we appreciate them,” library supervisor Lucinda Lyall said, noting the branch has around 4,500 members. “They make it a pleasure to work here.” Fred Koop said he has been coming to the library for 30 years, and enjoys the staff ’s positive attitude. “Most libraries are friendly, but this one is particularly helpful,” the White Rock resident said. Charles Marxer agreed. “This is the best library in the whole world,” said Marxer, who moderates SFU Philosopher’s Café, held once a month at the library. The event also kicked off White Rock Library’s summer offerings, including its children, teen and adult summer reading clubs, in which bookworms can record their reading time and enter to win prizes.

Postal strike action begins Jeff Nagel Black Press
Unionized postal workers began rotating strikes after a midnight Thursday deadline passed without a negotiated agreement in their labour dispute with Canada Post. Winnipeg was the first city selected for a 24-hour walkout, followed by Hamilton for 48 hours. Mail and parcel deliveries may be delayed as a result of the strike, but federal pension and benefit cheques should still be delivered. Elections BC has posted a list of locations on its website (www. elections.bc.ca) where voters can drop off HST referendum ballots if they’re concerned about mail deliveries. The ballots are supposed to be mailed out to households starting June 13 in most of rural B.C. and starting June 20 in the Lower Mainland. They must be received by Elections BC by July 22. “We will continue to strike,” Canadian Union of Postal Workers chief negotiator Denis

Lemelin said. “We will (also) continue to negotiate with Canada Post.” The union had asked for wage hikes of 3.3 per cent in the first year and 2.75 per cent in each of
the next three years. Canada Post offered a fouryear contract lifting pay 1.9 per cent in each of the first three years and 2.0 per cent in the fourth.

We are pleased to announce that Surrey is now collecting mattresses for recycling.
Mattress Collection Challenges
Surrey’s Response...Recycle It!
On January 1, 2011, Metro Vancouver placed a disposal ban on mattresses as they are operationally difﬁcult to handle and recyclable when properly disassembled. Mattresses disposed of as garbage cannot be compacted – consuming a large amount of landﬁll space. In addition, the springs within mattresses often become tangled in equipment causing costly repairs. Customers that bring mattresses to regional transfer stations for disposal as garbage are charged $20/unit and are limited to only four (4) mattresses per load.
While Surrey had consequently stopped collecting mattresses via the Large Item Pickup Program as a result of the Metro Vancouver imposed disposal ban, the City has developed a process to recycle old unwanted mattresses. The City of Surrey will accept mattresses and box springs via the Large Item Pickup Program at no additional cost to residents. The collected mattresses will be delivered to a mattress recycling facility where they will be segregated into different materials and shipped to remanufacturing facilities to be processed into new reusable products.
How to Arrange Collection 1. Call Emterra Environmental at 604-635-5478 2. On the day of your appointment (or the evening before), place your mattress/boxspring at your curb. Ensure that your mattress is at the curb by 7:30am. * Please note that this program is available to households that are on the City’s door-to-door waste collection program. Mattresses or box springs will count towards your annual large item pickup limit of 4 items/calendar year.
For further information please visit www.surrey.ca or contact the Garbage & Recycling hotline at 604-590-7289. www.surrey.ca

THE TOUR DE WHITE ROCK PRESENTS:
FROM AN EXPERT PERFECT YOUR PANTRY Picture it: you’re billeting elite athletes cycling in the Tour, they ask for a snack and when you open your cupboards all that you can offer are processed foods that they politely decline. Whether you are cleaning house for guests or for you and your family, consider the following foods to keep stocked for optimal ﬁtness and overall health. If you read the last food edition, you’ll know this is not going to be a list of bars, supplements and sports drinks, but instead unprocessed ingredients with which to make easy meals and snacks for working out. To perfect your protein, ﬁll your fridge with a variety of nuts, seeds and nut butters (keeping them cool prevents oxidation and rancidity). Add in a selection of low-fat dairy and alternatives, like soy or cow’s milk, plain yogurt and cottage cheese, which contains a whopping 15 grams of protein in half a cup. Include other lean choices, like free-range eggs, tofu, hummus, ﬁsh and poultry. Eating protein at all meals and snacks is key to keeping blood sugars stable, but is especially important to include right after a workout to maintain muscle. Your cupboard is where you can clean up your carbohydrates.
Nicole Fetterly, BSc., RD Received her degree in Food, Nutrition and Health from UBC and has worked in a variety of settings such as clinical nutrition, private practice, including food writing and media work and now as the Nutrition Operations Manager for Choices Markets. firstname.lastname@example.org
Toss out the chips, cookies, low-ﬁbre cereal and crackers. Instead, ﬁll glass jars with whole grains like oats, barley, brown rice, quinoa, wholegrain pasta and millet. Choose sprouted grain breads for your toast and sandwich needs due to their high ﬁbre and protein content. Carbohydrates are the major energy source in a diet and provide the fuel needed to perform. Choosing less-reﬁned carbohydrates sustains energy levels for longer, more taxing workouts. Don’t forget to clean out that sticky cupboard ﬁlled with oils. Opt for cold-pressed olive, coconut and canola oils and choose olive oil for 80% of the time. Add small portions of a healthy fat at each meal to also balance blood sugars and provide the body with the fat it needs for cell membrane conduction and skin, immune, blood vessel and brain health. To help keep inﬂammation at bay, have a healthy dose of omega-3 fats from fatty ﬁsh or a ﬁsh oil or algae supplement. And last, but deﬁnitely not least: fresh fruits and vegetables. Fill a beautiful bowl on your counter with a bounty of fresh produce—apples, pears and berries are great low glycemic, local fruit choices. Bananas and oranges are ﬁlled with potassium and perfect for post-workout electrolyte replacement. Top it off with tomatoes, avocados, yams and a fridge full of leafy greens, carrots, cabbage, broccoli and other antioxidant-rich veggies needed to heal the body. Now when the cyclists request a snack, what can you pull out? Yogurt and berries, hummus and veggies, a banana and nut butter sandwich—the possibilities are endless when you have a healthy pantry full of real foods. For more great ideas on Food for Fitness, join Nicole and the Choices Chef, Antonio Cerullo, for a cooking class on June 20th at the Choices Markets South Surrey location.

The Cat’s Meow The Cat’s Meow, by Steven Peros, which receives its Canadian premiere tonight (June 8) at the Coast Capital Playhouse, is a White Rock Players production directed by Shelagh Shermann.

The Jazz Age tale features Paul Kloegman (Hearst), Marissa Whiteway (Davies), Michael Jenkins (Chaplin), Jane Mantle (as newspaper columnist Louella Parsons), Deborah Spitz (as novelist Elinor Glyn) and Jason Dedrick (as pioneering movie producer and director Thomas H. Ince). The show continues with Wednesday to Saturday performances at 8 p.m. until June 25 (there will also be a Sunday matinee June 19, 2:30 p.m.).

How to help kids ﬁnd the right activity CREATIVE KIDS LEARNING CENTERS Today’s kids are busier than ever before. Be it the increasingly competitive nature of scholastic life or the increase of two-income households where kids need something to do other than come directly home after school, children today are much busier than their school-aged counterparts of yesteryear. While it can be fun and beneﬁcial for kids to participate in extracurricular activities, ﬁnding the right ﬁt isn’t as easy as it sounds. When helping kids ﬁnd an extracurricular activity, it’s best to consider a host of factors. Especially keep in mind that not all kids are the same with respect to interests. And what was enjoyed by their parents won’t necessarily be enjoyed by them. Getting Started The best place to start is to speak to kids about their interests. Just because Dad loved playing football doesn’t mean Junior is destined to be a gridiron great. Kids have their own interests, and those interests can be cultivated with the right extracurricular activity. For example, a creative child might enjoy an after-school art class a couple of times per week. Parents should also consider extracurriculars that can help kids grow as people. For instance, a child who’s shy in public but loves hamming it up at home might embrace an afterschool theater program. Once options have been discussed
with kids, take in a session or two before committing to anything. The shy youngster might visit the local theater program and enjoy it thoroughly, or he or she might decide against it. Either way, a visit will give kids and parents a sense of what the program is like and whether or not it’s the right ﬁt. When visiting, observe the nature of the program. Is it an encouraging, vibrant environment? Do the adults and kids involved appear to be having fun? Get the 411 Parents want their kids to be as safe after school as they are during it. When looking for an extracurricular activity, inquire about the staff-to-child ratio and about the staff’s professional background. Any staff-to-child ratio that is greater than 12:1 likely indicates a program that is understaffed, which could mean kids won’t get the attention they need. Also, ask for the staff’s references and work history in the ﬁeld of child care. If certiﬁcation is necessary or recommended, make sure the staff meets all requirements. Parents should also inquire about program costs. Though many programs are upfront about fees, some have hidden fees that can add up. Such fees can be for uniforms, equipment, class trips, etc. Extra fees don’t have to exclude a program from consideration, but it’s better to know about them in advance than have See page 30

Extracurriculars can help kids grow them come as a surprise. Consider a Child’s Grade Level A child’s age and grade level should also be considered when choosing an extracurricular activity. Consult teachers about ﬁnding an age-appropriate extracurricular activity. For example, less competitive activities that emphasize fun might be more appropriate for kids in kindergarten and the ﬁrst grade. For second graders, activities not offered at school, like learning to play an instrument, can help cultivate a child’s interest in a noncompetitive environment. As kids reach third grade and beyond, consider more rulesbased activities, including team sports, as kids at that age are more capable of understanding rules and handling losing than younger kids. As children get older and move on to middle school, look for activities that reinforce learning and help develop a young person’s character, including their ability to interact with others. When looking for an extracurricular activity for kids, parents should consider a host of factors, including the child’s interests and age.
Have a great summer

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula
Katie Reid, Jack Williams and Ryan Sommer among South Surrey athletes with double-medal performances
Track stars take two at provincials Nick Greenizan
emiahmoo’s Jack Williams did just as his coach predicted he would Friday at B.C. High School Track and Field Championships, and that was win the boys 3,000-m race. But he did his coach, Maureen de St. Croix, one better the following day, when he was the only South Surrey runner to find the podium in the star-studded 1,500-m race; he finished in second in a time of 3:53.08, just three seconds back of Fleetwood Park’s Keffri Neal. “I’m really happy, it went really well,” said Williams. In the 3,000, Williams said the pace was fast but manageable in the early stages, and he made his move to the lead pack at the same time as second-place finisher, St. Andrew’s Cody Therrien. “About 800 in, Cody moved up and I had to go with him, and then he started to slow down a bit near the end, and I was able to pass him.” The 1,500-m, however, was an entirely different affair – with much more back and forth than the longer three-km race. After the grueling 3,000-m and 1,500 heats on Friday, Williams said he was nearly gassed for Saturday’s 1,500 ❝I saw my finals, and on the last parents on the lap, actually considered back stretch, dropping out of the race. and they were “I didn’t know what the cheering for other guys had planned, but I just knew that I had me, and I knew I had to really sore legs,” he said. keep going.❞ On the final lap, Williams was in second Jack Williams place, six or seven metres Semiahmoo behind Neal, when White Rock Christian’s Sean Keane – ranked second in Canada in the 1,500 and the defending B.C. high school champ – and Therrien caught and passed him. “I didn’t know how long I was going to be able to keep up with Keffri, and when Sean and Cody passed me, I thought about maybe quitting, but then I saw my parents on the back stretch, and they were cheering for me, and I knew I had to keep going,” Williams said. He passed Keane, who finished fourth, and Therrien, who won bronze, with 200 metres to go. “I just left it all out there on the track,” Williams said. Though Keane finished off the podium in the 1,500, he did pick up silver in the 800m, finishing behind Neal, whose doublegold performance earned him the meet’s Most Inspirational Athlete Award. Deon Clifford, from Earl Marriott, was fourth in the 3,000-m and sixth in the 1,500, giving Surrey schools four of the six top finishes in the latter event. All six runners had times under four minutes in the 1,500, which made it one of the fastest races in recent memory. “That had to have been the fastest 1,500 in, well, maybe forever,” said Elgin Park’s Jake Bruchet, who didn’t run the 1,500 but won silver in the senior boys 2,000-m

sports Semiahmoo entered at 11th seed
Totems fourth at badminton provincials Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter
After two years trying, the Semiahmoo Totems finally vanquished an old foe earlier this month, en route to a fourth-place finish at badminton provincials in Kamloops. The Totems, who for the last two years had been beaten in provincial play by South Kamloops, got the better of their rivals – who were the top seed – this time around, beating them 7-4 in quarter-finals. “It’s almost like sweet revenge, as corny as that may sound,” said Semiahmoo teacher Mike Hovan, who coached the team with Jens Berg. Where the Totems gained an edge against South Kamloops was in the boys pairs event – which the host squad had dominated in previous matches. This time, however, Semi’s Kevin Lu and Jeffrey Liang won – a victory Hovan called “the real turning point.” “The boys just left it all out on the court. They gave it their all – it was amazing.” Semiahmoo – seeded 11th when the tournament began – went on to lose in semifinals to St. George’s/Crofton House, and then dropped a close series with Richmond in the bronze-medal affair; they lost 7-4 but six of the 11 games went to a third set. The toughest game, Hovan said, was against the St. George’s/Crofton House conglomerate – combined for the purposes of mixed games, as St. George’s is an all-boys school. “Our guys just couldn’t manage to get much on their boys, and Crofton’s girls are basically Canada’s junior national team, so that was awfully tough, too,” he said. “The kids were a little disheartened as you might expect, but to come into it 11th and come out in fourth is
pretty amazing, and I think after a few days, they’ll realize it, too.” In earlier roundrobin action, Semi defeated Vancouver’s Prince of Wales Secondary, Kelowna and J.N. Burnett of Richmond. In addition to the pairing in Lu and Liang, Hovan was also quick to heap praise on Grade 10 Chelsea Yang, who lost only two singles matches all tournament, and senior Stephanie Chen, whom Hovan called “the heart and soul of the team.” It was Semiahmoo’s fourth straight trip to provincials.

Mariners finish fourth at rugby provincials Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter
The Earl Marriott Mariners finished fourth at B.C. High School Senior Boys Rugby Championships last week, ending the tournament with back-to-back losses against two of the province’s top teams. After a quarter-final win over Vancouver St. George’s Wednesday afternoon, the Mariners were faced with the daunting task of taking on No. 1-seeded Shawnigan Lake Thursday – whom EMS coach Adam Roberts said “are like men out there.” Shawnigan beat Marriott 47-6 at Abbotsford Rotary Stadium to
advance to the finals – which they also won handily, 43-0 over Victoria’s Oak Bay. In the bronze-medal match, Earl Marriott lost 22-19 North Vancouver’s Carson Graham. Earl Marriott, seeded No. 5 heading into provincials. began the tournament with a road win May 28 over the South Kamloops Titans. The Semiahmoo Totems, who lost their first-round game against St. George’s earlier this month, finished 14th out of 16 teams; they lost the 13/14 placing game Saturday, 55-10 to the Argyle Pipers of North Vancouver.
