Roundabout possible for Trunk Road intersection

Keeping watch!




An adult Canada goose keeps a watchful eye on the goslings as they take an afternoon nap near the pond at Centennial Beach in Tsawwassen.


Delta is considering its options for upgrading the intersection at Ladner Trunk Road and Arthur Drive, and turning it into a roundabout is one possibility. Steven Lan, Delta’s director of engineering, confirmed the municipality is looking at two options for the intersection: upgrading the current signal light or going with a roundabout. He said staff will present both options to Delta council at a closed workshop next week before coming back with a report at a public meeting later in the year. “It’s pretty preliminary right now,” Lan said. Council workshops are usually open to the public, however part of this discussion will involve land issues, he said. Delta purchased the parcel at the southeast corner of Ladner Trunk Road and Arthur Drive that was formerly home to KFC and an office. The building has since been demolished to make room for the intersection upgrades and green space expansion.

Tourism in need of champion Rookie councillor Sylvia Bishop says someone needs to step up to promote Delta’s many attractions BY


Delta needs a champion to promote its many tourism attractions, says Coun. Sylvia Bishop. The first-term civic politician has asked Delta staff to look for more information and the possibility the municipality can connect with South Surrey and White Rock to market the region. The idea had originally been put forward by Vancouver Coast Mountains Tourism, one of several regional destination marketing organizations, but nobody has followed up. “I’m curious to see if there isn’t an opportunity for Delta to take part in a joint community tourism possibility. They’ve divided the province into different tourism regions but I’m curious whether this program would come with some funding and what resources would it take from us to take part,” Bishop said. Delta has a variety of attractions, including Centennial Beach, the Reifel Bird Sanctuary and Burns Bog, which should make the municipality a major hub for visitors, including eco-tourists. However, not enough is being done to coordinate and market any long-term



Delta has many places that would be of interest to visitors, but not enough is being done to attract them, according to first-term councillor Sylvia Bishop. promotional activities, said Bishop. “We have so many people coming through here. Just imagine if we captured more of those going to and coming off the ferries to spend some time here,” she said. Bishop noted Delta has received funding for its tourism strategy for

various projects, including a city twining initiative and a branding and signage program, but more can be done to have people visit local attractions and spend money here. Bishop said Tourism Richmond is able to carry out promotional activities because it collects revenues from a two per cent hotel

room levy, but there aren’t many hotels in Delta to make it feasible for a group to do the same here. “The other challenge is that every great idea needs a champion and it’s finding that champion locally who’s willing to put some energy and effort into it, beyond the corporation (of Delta),” Bishop said.

“There’s no champion I can think of right now. I’ve talked to a lot of business people and a couple of the BIA (business improvement associations) and there’s a lot of interest in doing something around tourism, but what that thing is is something nobody has been able to figure out.” The Delta Chamber of

Commerce operates the Delta Visitors Centre with municipal and provincial funding. Its website also promotes local attractions. Executive director Peter Roaf said that’s about as far as the chamber’s involvement goes in tourism. Noting Delta has taken the lead for marketing the community, he said more active marketing requires resources and ongoing funding. As far as a tourism initiative involving South Surrey and White Rock, Roaf said something like that would be a good idea. He noted Tourism Richmond could also be asked to get involved because there are many similarities between Ladner and Steveston. “I guess if we all agree to move ahead on this we have to ask if the Corporation of Delta is going to pursue this. I think there’s a discussion that’s restarted and the chamber would be happy to be a part of this,” he said. “We are a member-driven organization, so those members who are in those businesses who wanted to get something going, we’d support that. But in terms of a municipal effort, then we’d have to talk to Delta and somebody there would have to take a leadership role. It’s a difficult thing to get going without a source of revenue,” Roaf said.

Chamber’s visitor centre sees fewer tourists in ’11 BY


The Delta Visitor Centre, operated by the Delta Chamber of Commerce, saw a 12 per cent decrease in individual visits last year. In a report presented to Delta council, the visitor centre at the corner of 60th Avenue and River Road saw

a total of 2,251 individuals in 2011, compared to 2,557 the previous year. In 2010, the centre experienced a four per cent drop from 2009. There was also a four per cent drop in 2011 in the number of parties (two or more people together). Meanwhile, the total number of phone calls to the

centre was down seven per cent in 2011. According to the report, the U.S. and global economy, cost of gas, a new and larger visitor centre at the Peace Arch border crossing and easy access to web services for visitors are reasons for the trend. Approximately 72 per cent of users were local

residents, which was followed by visitors from Europe, and then the United States/Mexico, other parts of B.C., Alberta and the rest of Canada, followed by Asia/Australia. The top five needs for information were transportation (ferries, roads, directions), followed by attractions, accommodation,

parks and site facilities. Among the publications available is the Visitor’s Choice information guide for Delta, a joint approach to tourism by the chamber and the Corporation of Delta. The chamber has been operating the Tourism B.C.accredited centre, co-sponsored by the municipality

and the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation, on behalf of Delta since 2001. It’s operated 2,000 hours annually by staff, students and volunteers. Delta council this year approved giving another $47,500 in operating funding for the centre. The agreement does not include tourism marketing.

Pro recognized for playing an amazing 201 holes — and raising $7,400 — in annual ALS golfathon

Annacis Island gas thieves create hazmat incident with fuel spill BY


Delta emergency responders were called out to a business on Annacis Island Tuesday morning after an attempt to steal fuel turned into a hazmat incident. Delta fire department called in the police after discovering the gas tanks in three vehicles at a business in the 500-block of Ebury Place were punctured in an attempt to steal fuel. The Delta fire department’s hazmat team was brought in to clean up the spilled fuel, which was contained without any further damage. Police investigators canvassed other businesses in the industrial area adjacent to the Alex Fraser Bridge in an attempt to locate any possible video surveillance to help identify possible suspects. The incident is still under investigation.

Rudston-Brown, a regular supporter of the annual Golfathon for ALS, raised $7,400 by playing 201 holes of golf in a single day last month. Doug Russell, an ALS sufferer, is also pictured.

Final two suspects in murder to stand trial BY


The last two suspects charged in the 2007 murder of a South Delta man in California are set to go to trial this fall. Bill Dobbs, 48, was found murdered on the side of the road in Indio in November 2007. Last month, three

people found guilty in the Tsawwassen man’s murder were sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole. In April, Jackie Lynn Dunson, Fernando Antonio Benavidez and Ronald Wesley Handwerk were convicted of firstdegree murder in Riverside County Superior Court. Jackie Dunson, Benavidez and Handwerk

were tried together in the murder. Two other suspects, Robert Lee Dunson and Rogelio Leon Zuniga, are being tried separately. Their next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 29 with a trial expected in the fall. Robert Dunson could face the death penalty if convicted. Dobbs was last seen

alive leaving the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino with another man, later identified as Fernando Antonio Benavidez at around 3:45 a.m. on Nov. 26, 2007. A passing motorist found his body on the side of an Indio road the next day. His throat had been slashed. Benavidez is accused of luring Dobbs to the Dunson apartment where

We also go on outings where members can explore places with different features, colours and mood.” Another facet of learning is the monthly workshops, said Ostaf.

MURPHY’S LAW The Corporation of Delta announced last week it has signed an agreement with the Dayhu Group, a family-owned real estate investment company that has plans to build a 900,000-square-foot commercial distribution centre on industrial land near the Boundary Bay Airport. The mayor was quick to point out the Dayhu development is expected to create approximately 1,000 ongoing jobs, which would be a welcome boost in any economy, particularly the one we find ourselves in today. I’m sure the numbers surrounding tax revenues and economic spin-offs are equally as rosy. Any project that brings such financial might to the table has to be considered a coup for local government, so civic officials deserve praise for brokering the deal, however, I’m still having a hard time wrapping my head around the location. I realize the land is zoned for industry, so what’s going in there makes sense and meets all regulations, but it seems like an odd spot to be creating another business park. I drove over the new 80th Street overpass the other day and when I got to the crest of the $15 million structure I slowed to look around. What struck me about the scene was how the landscape once dominated by farm fields was now dotted with a variety of other uses, a view that will continue to evolve given the multitude of land preparation equipment that was in sight. It’s ironic that even though land use has long been considered a contact sport in Delta, for some reason this burgeoning industrial area hasn’t really drawn much attention from the public. Perhaps it’s because the site is already zoned for such purposes (although the zoning was recently changed from aviation-related to a much broader spectrum of uses) or maybe it’s simply a case of being out of sight, out of mind. Whatever the reason, the talk about protecting farmland focuses on warehouses near the port or houses on the Southlands. I realize those properties are zoned agricultural and this is industrial, but come on, if we’re really committed to the cause all it would take is a stroke of the pen to change that. Yet what we’ve seen is a move the other way, a broadening of the acceptable uses in order to allow more industry to set up shop in what has long been an agricultural stronghold. I guess it makes the most financial sense for land use to go in that direction. Funny, I think I’ve heard that argument somewhere else before.

Development efforts initiated with Spetifores 40 years ago DOUG HUSBAND

COMMUNITY COMMENT When I last wrote we left off with the Spetifore family facing a tax assessment on the estate reported to be $320,000 (Optimist, 1969), which in today’s dollars would be well in excess of $1 million. In 1964, the hay farm in Grand Forks was sold as was the 300 head of purebred Jersey stock, by public auction in 1965. One can draw their own conclusion on the affect of the tax assessment on the viability of the farm operation and the reason for the sale of the land and the dairy herd. In 1968-69, the Social Credit government expropriated 4,000 acres in South Delta as back up land for the planned Roberts Bank superport. The 100 acres at 52nd Street and Highway 17 owned by the Spetifores was expropriated and removed from their land inventory. While this was going on George Spetifore was outspoken about the United States and Mexico “dumping agricultural product” in B.C. and affecting pricing. He also railed against federal subsidies to eastern Canadian farmers that

exported product to B.C., claiming unfair advantage. George claimed their farm operation was no longer competitive. He is quoted as saying there was only 135 acres suitable for crop farming. The 535 acres was reclaimed from the receding salt waters of Boundary Bay. The soil has a high saline content mixed with 15 different soil types. It should be remembered Delta, in those times, had its own gravity water works system with water towers, located at high elevations in South Delta (Tsawwassen) and Watershed Park (North Delta). It was not unusual to have poor water pressure for home use during summer months, particularly in the Tsawwassen area. Farm practises in Delta are everevolving and in the 1940s-1960s there were numerous dairy herds requiring pasture and hay. Other crops grown in those times ranged from flax, various grains and hay to potatoes and peas. There was limited use of irrigation systems, and only available from sloughs and ditches on the flatlands. During wet weather the natural waterways and ditching assisted with drainage. The Spetifore lands did not have access to municipal water for irrigation, nor any drainage improvements. In 1971 George was openly attempting to develop the 535 acres for housing. Quadrant

Developments presented a housing plan to Delta council, which forwarded it to the GVRD. The plan was rejected at that level. In 1973, the acreage was placed in the ALR by the provincial government. In 1974, the Spetifores opened a potato storage and processing plant on Crescent Island (Ladner). Frustrated by competition from south of the border and Eastern Canada, this niche market faced layoffs and closure in 1978. The plant was then converted to fish processing. George continued to explore development of the 535 acres. In 1975, Delta council entered into discussions and debate on the future use of this land. By a majority vote of council, the Corporation of Delta took a 60-day option to consider public purchase. The price was set at $12 million. The option was allowed to lapse without further action. In the late 1970s George began to explore development of 220 acres of foreshore east of Boundary Bay Road and south of the Beach Grove residential area. This land was never in the ALR and a case could be made to expand south as part of the established urban community. The GVRD became aware of this proposal, indicating its interest to establish a regional park on this acreage. To be continued. And a good night to you, Peter.

Emergency. Unfortunately, he had to be euthanized as his injuries were too severe. Our cat came to us from the wild, and while we could take Charlie out of the wild, we couldn’t get all the wild out of Charlie. Part of his terms was being able to enjoy the outdoors at night, mostly sleeping on his favourite patio chair. Likely due to an interaction with another animal,

our street-smart tabby ran out of luck. We are privileged he spent the too short time with us, but one thing he taught us is that each moment counted. So I hope you two Good Samaritans see this, and know that Charlie was the luckiest cat in the world to have had you with him at the end. Thank you for your kindness. Teresa & Rich Jones

ed: fishing and farming are essential to Delta’s identity. Again, every artifact comes from Delta. They were used by people that contributed blood, sweat and tears to establish Delta. I can’t agree with Ries that similar history is irrelevant history. While it’s true that, on the surface, the early history of Delta’s farming history appears to be similar to other agricultural-based communities across Canada, a deeper examination will reveal those stories unique to our area. Similar stories exist with the fishing industry, and the early development of our commercial businesses. The Delta Museum and Archives Society preserves photographs, documents, objects and stories from Delta. Are there similarities to other places in Canada? Yes, there are common threads that run through many Canadian communities. Are there stories unique to Delta? Most certainly!

going to be some similarity, but our interpretation has consistently reflected Delta in all its facets. Our lower floor exhibits are constructed to give the appearance of a walk down Delta Street between 1900 and 1950. It has a unique flavour, emphasizing the shop owners, doctors and characters one might meet. We even have True Oliver’s bicycle on display — a local larger than life figure that celebrated the benefits of rural life. On the main floor, we have exhibits that have been curated to emphasize a prosperous Edwardian house in the early 1900s. Photos and interpretation celebrate early pioneers such as the Ladners, Parmiters and Bensons. In fact, careful attention has been made to ensure that objects on display have a Delta provenance. A piano in one of the rooms is not just any piano, it was the Burr family piano. Upstairs, the main economic drivers are celebrat-

Editor: Re: Giving public access key to preserving heritage buildings, June 27 I am encouraged to see discussion of heritage preservation in Delta coming to the forefront. Heritage buildings are expensive to restore and maintain, and present challenges to communities that must balance preservation of history with the sober realities of municipal expenditures. I must, however, take a moment to clarify some statements made by Ed Ries regarding the Delta Museum. It is true that some of the objects found in the Delta Museum may be similar to objects found elsewhere. The stove displayed in the museum’s kitchen exhibit is similar to stoves found in homes of the period. What Delta Museum and Archives Society has tried to do is interpret that culture in a way that prompts people to consider the stories unique to Delta. As with all museums, there is

BEACH GROVE GOLF CLUB is proud to welcome


The Windover family joined our Club this spring. We asked them about their decision to join.

Why Golf? We both grew up around the game. Having it introduced to our lives when we were very young, we found it easy to return to now when we have more free time to enjoy it. We both use golf as a business tool to connect with our clients and friends too! Pam works as a marketing agent for a golf property in the interior of B.C. (Talking Rock) so the business of golf is also an important part of her daily life. Our son Colin is also getting started in the game and seems to love it. We hope our two older children Matt and Sydney will come out with us when they are home. Why Now? Laurie has been very active in team sports all his life. These sports, hockey in particular, can create some pretty taxing wear and tear on the body. Golf provides an excellent form of non contact exercise. It really seems to be a sport for life. The value to join Beach Grove Golf Club compared to any other club is really exceptional at this time too. Why Beach Grove? It has never been more affordable and we have a real history here. My parents Jim and Betty Thomson were active members for many years and we actually met here back in the 70's. Laurie worked in the pro shop and I was in the junior girls program. We now live in South Surrey and the drive is only 30 minutes door to door. The weather is just a bit better in Tsawwassen. We play with a great group of people on Saturday and Sunday's and sometimes just drop by in the evenings for nine holes. The course is beautifully kept and a pleasure to walk.

Tsawwassen’s Peter Vassilopoulos has republished the work of Kenneth John Haycock.

Book gets second chance BY


Tsawwassen marine author Peter Vassilopoulos has helped a late North Delta author’s book see widespread publication. The History of the RCMP Marine Services by Kenneth John Haycock covers the vessels owned and operated by the RCMP’s various marine services. The book is heavily illustrated with photos in black

and white and colour. “A lot of photographs were recovered from archives all over the country,” said Vassilopoulos. The Mounties published it originally as a limited edition, using it for presentation purposes. Only 100 copies were printed, he explained. Vassilopoulos, who also edited and did the production, graphics, design and layout, has now republished the book.

Haycock passed away in 2009 after a battle with cancer, Vassilopoulos noted. Vassilopoulos also said a copy of the book was presented to Prince Charles during his recent visit to Canada. The History of the RCMP Marine Services can be found at Albany Books in Tsawwassen and other bookstores. To order a copy online, or for more information, visit

Each of these results can have added benefits including faster healing, increased performance, better quality sleep, and improved overall wellness, all of which can help alleviate the symptoms of arthritis and peripheral vascular disease often associated with diabetes. The key to Celliant® lies in it’s ability to absorb and store the electromagnetic (energy) emissions from the human body and release them where they are reabsorbed into the skin and deep muscle tissue. In the deep muscle tissue they act as catalysts for natural, biological process resulting in enhanced oxygen levels and more balanced body temperature during sleep, rest or physical activity.

Top 5 Reasons to Stick with Bikram Yoga this Summer!

Get Hot this Summer for $10

As the weather warms up it can be tempting to skip the studio to get your daily dose of heat outside instead. But stepping up your practice during the summer months can actually provide amazing benefits that aren’t available in winter. Here are some of the best reasons to maintain your Bikram Yoga routine this summer.

$10 Drop-in August

1. The hot room helps you acclimatize to the summer heat! 2. It works the other way around, too. When the yoga room

• Any class on the August schedule • No current membership • Mat and Towel service not included Ends August 31st, 2012

feels cooler than the great outdoors, practicing becomes a cakewalk!

3. Bikram Yoga encourages you to stay well hydrated by

keeping on top of your water intake and replenishing your electrolytes regularly.

4. Warmer weather often translates into a lighter appetite. This can take your Bikram Yoga practice to a new level by relieving you of that “full” feeling and letting you go much deeper into the postures.

5. You’ll look great and feel more comfortable and

confident in your skin - not to mention your swimsuit all summer long!

Sunny disposition Ahhh, summer is finally here! The sun is shining bright, the weather is warm, and the air smells of barbecue and summer vacations. I love summer; I enjoy the sun and the weather, and just everything about it. It’s as if life is easier to handle when you are sitting on your patio cooking on the barbecue and enjoying a nice cold beverage. If you are like most people, during the winter, when the sun seems to stop shining and it’s dreary and cold, you might become worn out and start dragging your feet. But when we do get that moment of sunshine, we feel invigorated and refreshed. I know that is how I am. Life can be like that, where so much stuff is going on we begin to

feel like we are caught in winter or a storm. I know it is times like these that I may not want to get out of bed in the morning. We seem to lose sight of any hope. It is times like these that I realize just how much my saviour Jesus Christ gives me hope. He is like the sun on a dreary day. He renews and refreshes me and picks me up, just as the sun does after bad weather. How truly blessed are we to have someone who gives us the hope to keep moving forward despite all the “bad weather” of life!

Wellbrook Winery owner Terry Bremner is once again hosting Summerfest. The annual event, which is scheduled for Saturday, July 21, features a classic car and motorcycle show, blueberry festival and outdoor market.

Wellbrook celebrates summer Annual festival returning to local winery next Sunday BY


Wellbrook Winery’s big annual event takes place next Saturday. Summerfest is always expanding, says Wellbrook owner Terry Bremner. “It’s going to be fantastic this year,” he says. The event features a range of attractions, including a classic car and motorcycle show, a blueberry festival and an outdoor

market. Bremner said he expects between 80 to 100 cars to show up but that “depends dramatically on the weather.” Model train setups and quilting displays from the Boundary Bay Quilters Guild will be on site again this year. The Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society, a non-profit organization whose volunteers are dedicated to public education and the rehabilitation and release of injured and orphaned birds, is expected to bring a

few birds to the event as well. There will be barbecue chicken, pie by the slice, chips, juice and more for those looking for a bite to eat. Visit the blueberry booth if you’re feeling adventurous and are interested in signing up for the always-popular blueberry pie-eating contest. The Centaurs will be back this year for more live ‘50s and ‘60s music. Kids can check out bouncy castles, an inflatable maze, a three-lane bungee run

and can try their hand at milking a “cow.” Partial proceeds from the event go to support the Delta Hospital Auxiliary. Bremner notes over $8,000 has been raised so far. Summerfest takes place Saturday, July 21 from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Wellbrook Winery, 4626-88th St. Admission is free. For more on the event, including a detailed schedule, visit wellbrookwinery. com.

phy, jewelry, mixed media and more — on the grounds of the winery. Entertainment by The Shiny Buckle Band, which specializes in “western swing” and has played at the

Vancouver Fringe Festival, will add to the atmosphere of the day. Food, ranging from fudge to hotdogs will be available. Members of the new Delta Arts Youth Council will be on hand to face paint and

greet the public. Wellbrook Winery will provide wine and juice tastings. The annual event is much anticipated by the artistic community and residents of all ages. Gallery in the

Garden runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Wellbrook Winery, 4626-88th St. For more information visit www., e-mail or call 604-596-1025.

Knockout brings Alice to Earthwise Garden

Tsawwassen’s local youth theatre troupe, Knockout Theatre, is gearing up for another live performance in the Boundary Bay Earthwise Garden. The group will stage Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland July 14 to 16. After a successful production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream last July, Knockout Theatre and director Zoë Wessler have made the difficult decision to say goodbye to the Bard, and to trade iambic pentameter for Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. The script has been adapted from Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass, as well as the 1951 Disney movie. The show is bursting with crazy characters, stunning scenery, flamboyant costumes and enough fun for the whole family. From caterpillars to white rabbits, every moment of this interactive, mobile theatrical experience will be just your cup of tea. The show will be performed on Saturday, July 14 and Sunday, July 15 at 1 and 6:30 p.m. as well as on Monday, July 16 at 6:30 p.m.

Working out — fed or fasting? p.j. wren

Well on Your Way


test out a lot of theories, research, and diet and fitness programs so I can best determine what works and what doesn’t. The most recent of them was exercising on an empty stomach — in particular, performing cardio first thing in the morning. I’m not really a morning person to begin with, so this was challenging for me. In fact, I think I may have been a tad unapproachable on my workout days,

because I did notice that loving husband gave me a wide berth on those mornings. Recently, there has been an influx of fitness programs alleging that exercising first thing in the morning — before that bowl of oatmeal — leads to greater fat loss. The notion of exercising on an empty stomach has been around for years, and is based on the fact our glycogen levels (the main way the body stores glucose for fuel for later use) is lower in the morning. You see, the body prefers glycogen as a fuel. When we workout, our body will use glycogen first and then when that runs out it will

start to burn fat. So, the theory rests that the lower the glycogen stores are in the body, the quicker it will use those stored fat cells as a fuel. I found I couldn’t maintain the intensity I normally train at because of low glycogen stores. So, I was happy to find a study that weighed the benefits of working out before and after breakfast. The study used 16 men, same median age and same fitness level, over a two-week period. The men either fasted and worked out or had a 673-calorie Mediterranean breakfast (25 per cent protein, 53 per cent carbohydrates and 22 per cent fat) and then worked

the measure of energy. The more oxygen consumed while exercising, the greater the calorie expenditure. This is why we burn more calories running than walking. Within the two groups there was a slightly higher calorie burn for the fed group, both 12 and 24 hours after the treadmill session. The fed group read 4.5 ml of oxygen per kilogram, per minute while the fasting group read 4.2 in a 12-hour period. After 24 hours, the fed group dropped down to 4.3 and the fasting group to 4.0. The secondary measurement, respiratory exchange ratio (RER), measures what macronutrients are being

out. Other than that, the subjects followed the exact same diet. All subjects followed the same exercise schedule: 36 minutes on a treadmill at 65 per cent of their heart rate reserve. The two measurements taken (at baseline and then throughout the two weeks) were the participant’s oxygen consumption and respiratory exchange. These two measurements are the best methods to determine which group burned more fat, the fed or the fasted, and they were recorded at 12-hour and 24-hour intervals after the exercise session. The first measurement, oxygen consumption, is

used by the body. During exercise we use carbohydrates and fats as primary fuel sources, and then protein as a last resort. As RER rises, the body uses more carbohydrate for its needs; as RER declines, it burns more fat. I don’t know about you, but I would prefer fat to be used as my body’s primary fuel source. The fed group won this one too. It scored lower in RER, and went down even lower 24 hours after the exercise session. What does all this mean? Working out after breakfast will score you an exercise session that will burn more calories and use a higher percentage of fat as a fuel. My recommendation: have a light breakfast before a training session, about 60 to 90 minutes prior, to provide your muscles with the fuel to burn and the ability to build. P.J.

Lexus ES redefines luxury car The sixth generation has a new look, described as ?Neo-Luxury - Neo Smart> DAVID CHAO & BOB MCHUGH


The new Lexus ES brings a whole new meaning to the words “Practical Luxury,”

which also happens to be the ES’s new slogan. In many ways the ES epitomizes Lexus and is one of the original founding vehicles the brand has been

built around. A sterling reputation for build precision, high quality and solid value for the money has made it the most popular Lexus. The all-new sixth genera-

tion ES will come in two editions — the ES 350 and an ES 300h, a completely new hybrid version, when released next August. There’s now a hybrid-drive

version of nearly every Lexus in the product line, plus a couple of hybrid-only models. As you might expect, the new ES has a new look, which Lexus describes as “Neo Luxury — Neo Smart.” Many styling cues, including the new spindle grille design, come from a super-coupe concept vehicle called the LF-LC, which has been doing the auto show circuit. Lexus has put engineering emphasis in this redesign to make the ES a better handling vehicle with a higher level of driving enjoyment. In spite of the fact the new ES has a longer wheelbase and a (slightly) wider track, the chassis, steering and suspension changes do seem to give it a lighter and more balanced feel on the road. Straight line directional stability has also gained a more positive steering feel. The chassis changes also take this ES further away from its Toyota Camry roots than any previous generation. And the difference becomes profound when you move inside and enjoy its opulent decor. It’s also a larger cabin that offers considerably more rear passenger room (104 mm more legroom and 71 mm of

extra knee space) compared to the current ES. The trim packages start with a base version with (NuLux) synthetic leather upholstery. It looks good, is lighter than the real leather used on higher trim levels and gives an option to those opposed to the use of leather in cars. Then there’s a Premium Package, Leather and Navigation Package, a Touring Package and a Technology Package. That’s certainly a lot of option packages for a luxury class car, which many buyers typically expect to come fully equipped. Lexus is not revealing the price structure on the new ES until closer to its release date in August, but expect a fairly wide price spread between a base version and a full-load top trim ES. That said, you can certainly add some nice features, including rear cross traffic alert, a lane departure warning system, a blind spot alert system, vented as well as heated seats, a “Remote Touch” interface, a panoramic sun roof or a heated steering wheel. A new changeable drive mode feature is standard on both ES350 and ES300h. See LEXUS page 22

Steering feel and throttle response (and air-conditioning use) changes as you flick through the three settings, but not the suspension. You can also flick the transmission into a sport mode, if you’re really in the mood for some spirited driving. Power comes from a 3.5litre, 268-horsepower V6 engine in the ES 350 and it’s mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, which is basically the same as the current ES 350. It has good low engine speed grunt and in combination with the new sport mode features this ES can really move and is fun to drive. The new ES 300h uses basically the same hybrid system that’s in the Camry Hybrid. The gas engine is a 2.5-litre Atkinson cycle

four-cylinder, and in conjunction with the electric motor it can generate 200 hp and it is silky smooth in operation. Most drivers will also find the power provided to be more than adequate and there’s an EV (electric) drive mode with a range of up to two kilometres. The payoff for the ES 300h is, of course, at the gas pump and to the environment. Lexus, however, was not able to provide official fuel economy numbers and again promised them closer to the release date in August. I expect the numbers should be close to the new Camry Hybrid, which is an exceptionally good 4.9/5.1 L/100 km (city/highway). The ES has been the topselling Lexus in Canada for the past five years and 31 per cent of buyers were a previous owner of a Lexus ES. Now those are solid numbers!

ICBC’s inclusion of more comprehensive information in its vehicle claims history report improves an important buying tool for consumers, according to the Motor Vehicle Sales Authority of B.C. In addition to providing a record of any damage claims filed on a vehicle with ICBC (including the type of claim, the date and amount of the filing, as well as the vehicle’s current status), a report will now specify the primary area of damage as well as any outstanding claims or estimates for repairs. Previously, there was a $15 fee for the basic online report plus an additional $17 charge to access the detailed damage estimate, which would take an additional 24 to 48 hours to obtain. ICBC is now making all information available online for $20. While this is a positive step, the ICBC service does have limitations for a significant portion of vehicles available across B.C., according to Doug Longhurst, director of communications for the Motor Vehicle Sales Authority. “ICBC history reports do not to include claims information from outside the province or claims handled solely by private insurers,” warns Longhurst.

“Approximately 17 per cent of all vehicles in B.C. have been registered in other jurisdictions, while at least 17 per cent utilize private insurance.” Vehicle history reports are provided by the dealer as a best practice. If one is not provided, be sure to obtain your own. A comprehensive report, like CarProof, will provide information that might be missing from the ICBC report. Because a vehicle history report does not include information about the mechanical condition of a vehicle, the ideal course of action is to obtain a professional mechanical inspection, either from the dealer or via an independent mechanic. “Consumers should request all the information a dealer has available and make their criteria and priorities known at the get go,” explains Longhurst. “At the end of the day, consumers are advised to protect their interests by becoming active participants in all negotiations.” The Motor Vehicle Sales Authority is provincially mandated to license dealerships and salespeople in addition to offering consumer information and providing dispute resolution services.

Schuss closing out hometown career Delta Islanders standout’s local playing days winding down as Junior ‘A’ team heads into postseason schedule BY


The clock is ticking on the hometown career of one of the greatest talents ever to come out of the Delta Lacrosse Association. Sometime later this month, Logan Schuss will play his final game at the Ladner Leisure Centre. The Delta Islanders standout hopes his junior “A” playing days extend to August but lacrosse teams must vacate the local arena by Aug. 1 to make way for the coming hockey season. Schuss’ stick wizardry has been on display since he took to the floor as a toddler between periods when his father was still playing senior lacrosse with the Ladner Pioneers. He grew up in the Delta minor system and earned a full-ride field lacrosse scholarship to Ohio State University where he recently wrapped up another spectacular season, earning offensive player-of-the-year and All-Big-10 academic honours. When he completes his senior year next spring, he

won’t be rushing home to play for his hometown team yet again. It will be for somewhere in the Western Lacrosse Association as he’s expected to be the top pick in the 2013 junior draft. He will then focus on the National Lacrosse League, where he again is consid-

“It’s good to see some young fresh blood coming into the system but we have some good leaders here too. We have to pass the torch onto these guys.” Logan Schuss

ered a top prospect. “I think it really hit me when I came home and realized I wouldn’t be playing with some of my closest friends anymore,” said Schuss of his graduated teammates. “Playing in my hometown, I have many good memories in this building and we’re trying to build some more.”

The Islanders finished with their best record (14-5-2) in franchise history, good enough for second place in the final standings and an opening round bye in the playoffs. Delta will face New Westminster or Victoria when the semi-finals get underway next week. All Schuss has done since his return to the lineup is pile up 65 points in nine games, leading his team to a 71-1 record. He produced a career high FILE PHOTO

and franchise record five goals and 10 assists in last Sunday’s 21-8 regular season finale win at Nanaimo. He finished sixth in league scoring despite missing over half the season. This year’s roster is a mixture of young and veteran talent with players like Mike Mallory, Cody Hawkins and Schuss leading by example for an impressive group of rookies. “It’s good to see some young fresh blood coming into the system but we have

some good leaders here too,” continued Schuss. “We have to pass the torch onto these guys.” Prior to his return from school, there were rumblings Schuss wanted to close out his junior career with the best opportunity to play in the Minto Cup national championships and that would be with the defending league champion and first place Coquitlam Adanacs. He has been good friends of top Adanac sniper Robert Church since the two played together

on Team B.C. back at the Bantam level. However, the Islanders got off to a better than expected start to the season and walking away from a team that he played a large part turning into a contender over the past five seasons didn’t seem right. “It was something I thought about to myself but it just wouldn’t be the same playing there,” said Schuss. “Playing in my hometown in front of all my family and friends just means more to me.”

Lax 4 Life!


The Ladner Red Sox took first at the Diane Cook tourney.

Red Sox capture tourney On behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society, TOOB representatives Greg Watts and Bob Spratt receive a cheque for $19,484.37 from Delta Lacrosse Lax 4 Life organizers Kelly Robinson, Angela Smith and Angie Schwan. The second annual charity event, held back in April, is highlighted by a day long game featuring players of all ages who collect pledges to participate.

Canadians bench boss Mack to return

The Greater Vancouver Canadians of the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League announced Leland Mack will return for his fourth season as head coach. The Canadians have been a force in each of Mack’s campaigns behind the bench. Greater Vancouver has seen its post-season run end each time by fourtime defending champions

Vancouver Northwest Giants. This spring, the Canadians took the Giants to a third and deciding game in a best-of-three semi-final series before falling in overtime. The BCMMHL was established in 2004 to provide elite level 15- to 17year-olds the opportunity to play within their own age group at a high level for the purpose of development

for the next stage of their careers. The league consists of regional rep teams. The Canadians feature talent from the Arbutus Club, Vancouver Thunderbirds, Vancouver, Seafair, Richmond, North Delta and South Delta minor hockey associations. Players must play within their territorial zone. Notable graduates of

their program include Evander Kane, Brandon McMillan and Brendan Gallagher. Evaluations for the 201213 season are scheduled for Aug. 9 to 12. A final roster of 20 players, including two goaltenders, will be announced by Sept. 15. For more information on the tryouts and the league, visit

The annual Diane Cook tournament was held over the July long weekend in Newton, and for the second year in a row the Ladner Red Sox came away as champions. The Bantam baseball team displayed great pitching supported by excellent defence and hitting. The effort the Ladner team put forward was a great start to the summer season. The tournament started with a narrow victory over a strong Cloverdale team. Cloverdale led through most of the game but the Red Sox scored five in the bottom of the seventh to pull out the win. The second game against Surrey was far less dramatic as the Sox cruised to

a 13-1 victory. A hard-fought 4-1 decision over the Aldergrove Dodgers in the semi-finals sent the Red Sox to the finals for a rematch with the Cloverdale Spurs. Ladner prevailed 7-6 in the final that featured some great defence, timely hitting and solid pitching. The Red Sox roster includes: Gord Cooper, Mackenzie Falk, Daelen Magcalas, Jordan Dawson, Justin MacKenzie, Greg Scott, Jared Krueger, Matteo Corea, Tyler Andrews, Will Robinson, Thomas Costin, Drake Carruthers and Jackson Goodman. The team is coached by Trevor Falk, Jon Andrews, Brian Yamasaki and Ray Beisick.

Members of the Tsawwassen Shotokan Karate Club attended a gasshuku (seminar) in Chilliwack last month and achieved new black belt degrees. Heading the seminar were Sensei Oishi, an eighth degree black belt and four-time all-Japan champion, Sensei Yasuo Sakurai, a seventh degree black belt from Japan, and Don Sharp, a sixth degree black belt from Chilliwack. Tsawwassen instructors Graham Mallett (fourth degree) and Ashraf Omeria (third degree) were assistant instructors.

The gasshuku was attended by 80 people, some from as far away as Montreal and New York. At the seminar, Tsawwassen members Donna Williams passed to second degree black belt and Lorne Malinoski obtained his first degree black belt. Training sessions of the Tsawwassen Shotokan Karate Club are held in the South Park Elementary gym, 735 Gilchrist Dr., on Mondays and Thursdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. during the school year. Summer classes are held on Thursdays (7 to 8:30 p.m.) at the Bayside Club.

Students ages eight to 80 are welcome. The Tsawwassen Shotokan Karate Club was established in 1981 and was located in the Tsawwassen Junior Secondary gym for 23 years. Instructors are black belt certified by the Japan Karate Association and the club is affiliated with the Japan Karate Association of B.C. It is a non-profit club; instructors donate their time. The club has a long history of teaching traditional Japanese karate in a friendly atmosphere for fitness, self-defence and fun.

Family and friends are saddened by the passing of James Martin, after a courageous battle with cancer. He is lovingly remembered by his beloved wife Anne, sister Iris and brother -in-law Charlie, nephews, Stephen (Teresa), Chuck, Ian (Tanya) and niece Suzanne, and their families; brother Donald and sister Mamie (Jim) and their families in Scotland, sister Helen and nephew Andrew in NZ; stepdaughters Lorraine (Ray), Diane (Scott) and step daughter-in-law Debbilee, sister -in-law Judy (Sid); grandchildren, Danielle (Curtis), Laura, Josh, Curtis, Jenny, Gabe and greatgrandson Jace. James was predeceased by his son Mark, stepson Greg, sisters, Margaret and Cecilia, niece Wendy and nephews Graham and Donald. James was born in Glasgow, Scotland where he worked as a painter and served in the Royal Engineers in Kenya. He moved to Canada in 1957 and retired from the Alberta Wheat Pool after 30 years of service. James spent many happy years as a horseman at Fraser Downs. He was an artist and well known for his wonderful paintings, which he happily donated to many causes. Special thanks to Dr. Wong, doctors and nurses at VGH and Delta hospitals. In lieu of flowers donations to Children’s Hospital are graciously accepted. No service, however, a celebration of life will be set at a later date.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Start nothing significant – project or relationship – before Aug. 8. Stick to ongoing involvements, and reprise situations that return from the past. You might hear from an old love in the weeks ahead. He/she might have worked in your field, or you originally “backed away” due to a health problem. You’re eager to either find a partner/mate, or to fight others, over the next six weeks. (The two could be one.) Travel, emails, news, friends, siblings fill Sunday/Monday. Retreat to home midweek: relationship problems are intense. Romance calls Thursday/Friday. To work, Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Start nothing new before Aug. 8, especially in home, real estate, kids’ interests, furniture purchases, landscaping, building, etc. Stick to projects already in the works. Doublecheck lists, plans, etc. A mini-explosion occurs midweek, as health or work situations fight each other. E.g., two different bosses give you conflicting commands, accident potential is high with machines, or you could struggle with a conflict between your ethics and your duties – etc. Your ally is calmness: be mellow, let others quarrel. Earlier, Sunday’s for money. Love’s swift, real Monday night. Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing new and significant before Aug. 8, especially in communications, travel, sibling relations or paperwork. Want that job or government permission? Apply later. Your romantic courage heats up through late August and your attractiveness is high. You might call someone from the past. This romantic trend could be the “cure” for 2011’s rough break-up (if you went through one). You shine Sunday/Monday. Tuesday/Wednesday spark quarrels or unexpected jolts in monetary, sexual and romantic spheres. Practice letting go. Your real friends show Thursday/ Friday. Home, Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy sails high, but don’t start anything important before Aug. 8, especially in spending or earning areas. A former money opportunity (or a forgotten bill) can reappear in the next three weeks (July 19/20?). Chase clients who haven’t paid, or old, former money sources. All July, your relations with government agencies or head office remain smooth and affectionate. But friction rasps your home: be diplomatic. Rest, nap Sunday/ Monday. You’re in charge Tuesday/Wednesday, but fireworks erupt in relationships, home and career – a crisis will solve something! Talk, Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start nothing important before Aug. 8, especially in self-promotion zones, or projects intended to boost your personal fortunes. Nurture ongoing projects and relationships, avoid the new. You will be uncharacteristically indecisive over the next three weeks. Your hopes, optimism and social joys rise Sunday/Monday. Midweek (Tuesday/ Wednesday) features a knock-down, drag-em-out struggle – you can sidestep this, and let others flail around, or you can step into a legal, travel, moral or work conflict – your choice. My advice: rest, withdraw, nap. Your energy surges Thursday/Friday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The accent remains on popularity, flirtation and light romance, wish fulfillment, especially Monday night to Wednesday. Avoid “future planning” – and start nothing important before Aug. 8 – deal with ongoing and past situations, even in romance. A neglected duty returns, demanding that you take care of it. Sunday/Monday (Monday not so much) encourage your ambitions, and boost relations with higher-ups. Show your best side! An explosive situation needs caution, diplomacy Tuesday/Wednesday. Retreat, rest and contemplate Thursday/Friday – all’s smooth. Your energy soars Saturday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing important before Aug. 8. Protect ongoing projects from delays and mistakes. A former lover or friend might “appear” soon. In general, your emotional happiness is expanding. Your will power and determination are high to late August (but don’t train them on a new project or relationship before Aug. 8). Intellectual, far travel, cultural and love matters are gathering steam – and luck – and will soon burst into success. Step carefully Tuesday/Wednesday: home, career, relationships might explode into a “no holds barred” situation. Social joys come Thursday/Friday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start no new projects nor relationships before Aug. 8, especially in career, business, status zones, or in dealings with authorities, parents or bosses. (These areas flow smoothly Thursday/Friday.) Protect ongoing projects from delays, shortages and mistakes – doublecheck instructions, have a “Plan B” ready. Be willing to temporarily assume a past role or job. Sunday/ Monday hint at your luckiest area of action for the year ahead. Your mood’s mellow Tuesday/Wednesday, but problems arise in communications, travel, work, health and/or government zones. Happiness, Saturday! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Depths, mysteries, intimacy, big finances, research, dreams, health diagnosis – these still have one week to run. They do run – into trouble or conflict Tuesday/Wednesday, if you’re too hopeful, romantic or risk-oriented. However tempted you are, take no action to change things now, and start no new ventures (especially in legal, travel or educational areas) before Aug. 8. Instead, reprise past projects/relationships. Opposition and “relationship joy” come Sunday and Monday (weaker). Your intellectual, mellow, loving side emerges Thursday/ Friday. Soon, an “ex” might appear.

July 15 - 21, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Don’t start new ventures or relationships before Aug, 8. Stick with ongoing projects, especially in research, big finances (e.g., mortgage, investment) and intimacy (as a goal). One exception: if a former “unreachable” investment re-appears, seize it. These (finances, sex) flow well Thursday/Friday. But for three weeks, don’t dabble in the stock market, don’t even deal with the stocks you already own. Tackle routine chores Sunday/Monday. Friction, even fireworks possible in relations, home and career midweek – step lightly, diplomatically. Saturday’s mellow, wise. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Start no new projects nor relationships before Aug, 8. Recently formed links, and ongoing relocation, litigation, negotiation, advertising and similar projects stall or meander uselessly (like trying to turn a vine into a tree). A former partner might reappear, this week or the next two – perhaps Thursday/Friday. Yes, renew it if the problems that first separated you have gone away. You might relocate to a familiar place. Your romantic prospects remain strong. (Sunday/Monday lean this way.) Avoid legal hassles through late August. Protect health, work midweek. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Don’t start any new projects nor relationships before Aug. 8, especially in work, health, machinery and similar zones. DON’T buy new tools or machines. Sunday/Monday accent your home – it remains affectionate, and any recent renos please you. But don’t start renovations or landscaping before Aug, 8. You feel romantic Tuesday/ Wednesday, but both days are filled with unexpected conflict – you might have a lover’s quarrel, or could find a sudden crisis drives someone into your arms. Difficulties revolve around sex, duties, health, money. Tackle chores Thursday/Friday. • Reading: 604-727-3673
