Feds chip in $4.2M Burnaby’s Neil Squire Society ‘delighted’ by news Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Jason Lang/burnaby now

On scene: Investigators at work Tuesday morning at the scene of an Elwell Street stabbing. A 24-year-old man is in custody after his 45year-old mother died of stab wounds in a Monday evening incident that police are describing as a domestic dispute.

A 45-year-old Burnaby mother is dead, and her 24-year-old son is in police custody after a Monday evening stabbing in the Edmonds area. Police received a call about a domestic incident in the 6700 block of Elwell Street just before 6:30 p.m. on Monday. They arrived to find the woman lying on the road. She had multiple lacerations and stab wounds and was transported to hospital by

paramedics. The woman, who lived in the 6800 block of Elwell Street, died at the hospital several hours later. Police investigators cordoned off the area and, after talking to several witnesses, arrested the woman’s 24-year-old son. “This homicide appears to be the direct result of a domestic dispute which sadly was witnessed by many in the neighbourhood,” said RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Peter Thiessen. “This is an example of how volatile domestic disputes can be and the impact it can have

on all those involved. This has impacted and changed a family forever and affected a neighbourhood.” The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has taken over the investigation and is working with the Burnaby RCMP’s serious crime section and the Lower Mainland district integrated forensic identification section and integrated police dog service. Police expect to be on the scene for the next 24 to 48 hours.

The federal government is giving Burnaby’s Neil Squire Society $4.2 million over four years to help people with disabilities prepare for the workforce. “We’re delighted. We are so thankful to the government of Canada for this support,” said executive director Gary Birch. The non-profit society has branches across Canada to help people with disabilities get job training. The $4.2 million is earmarked for the society’s enhanced employability program. “It’s a program designed to reach out to those who are generally more marginalized than other people with disabilities to help them pursue reintegration into the workforce,” Birch said. Six-hundred and sixty people with disabilities across Canada should benefit from the program, which will be free. Birch said the program helps people on a number of levels. The society makes sure participants are using customized “assisted technologies,” so they can effectively use Funding Page 4

Not much can be said about k.d. lang that millions of people don’t already know. The Western Canadian native has more than 25 years behind her as a major-label artist, including Grammy wins and nominations. She launched her career with a blend of country-rock stylings with a playful, punk-like attitude. lang’s hit albums include Shadowland, Ingenue and Drag.

Ben Rodgers and the Black Oats, which emulates the stylings of Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Gram Parsons, is a four-piece country/Americana band.

Rogers has graced the stage alongside Luke Doucet, Basketball and Josh Martinez. He’s also performed all throughout the U.K. The fall of 2011 will be a busy time for the band, as they’re set to tour all across North America in time for their album, Brigands. – Stefania Seccia

Iconic blues guitarist John Mayall is set to burn up the Lake Stage this Saturday as one of the headliners of the 12th annual Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival. In a phone interview from Los Angeles, Mayall said he and his new collection of band mates go where the audience is, and they have that right here in the Lower Mainland. “Every time we play in Canada, the reaction has been really terrific,” Mayall explained. “I really enjoy playing there.” “Vancouver “Blues fesover the years has been one of tivals are our main cirwonderful. cuits.” You get to … Mayall has just wrapped unite with up touring other musiacross Europe and started his cal people Canadian shows from over the early August in Kelowna, years.” Nelson, CastleJOHN MAYALL gar, Edmonton, Musician Kitchener and Gravenhurst with a few pit stops in the U.S. before embracing Burnaby on Aug. 13. “We travel so much,” he added. “But travelling from A to B is the hard part.

It has been a difficult summer for the Burnaby Mental Wealth Society as the board and employees struggled to find funding and keep their clubhouse open. But after losing its funding from Fraser Health as of this month, the society is in the process of securing transitional funding for its centre at 6112 Sussex Ave., according to the president of the society’s board. To celebrate, the society is holding a thank-you barbecue this Friday. “The invitation is extended to all of the community,” said Carmina Tinaburri, the president of the board. “It’s a big thank you for all the community support.” The barbecue is on Aug. 12, 1 to 5 p.m., in the West Burnaby United Church parking lot, at 6050 Sussex Ave., across from the centre. Admission is free. “We’d like to encourage people to come, to thank them for all their support,” Tinaburri said. The society is still looking for permanent funding and is meeting with a knowledgeable fundraiser, she said. The group has also hired a student to help with the fundraising effort, she added. “We have a ways to go, but we’re getting a lot of support,” Tinaburri said. The focus of the centre has shifted to working with seniors with mental illness, she explained, as many of the members are seniors. Brett Enemark, an employee with the society, told the NOW about the shift last week. The centre was able to pull through with the help of volunteers and new funding, and it will continue its stable food program as long as possible, Enemark added. Those wishing to donate to the centre can do so through PayPal on the society’s website at www.

HST referendum results coming in late August

British Columbians will have to wait till late August to learn the results of the HST referendum. Elections B.C. sent out more than three million packages to registered voters, who were asked whether to keep the harmonized sales tax. The referendum question was: Are you in favour of extinguishing the HST (harmonized sales tax) and reinstating the PST (provincial sales tax) in conjunction with the GST (goods and service tax)? Yes or no? The deadline to get the packages back

to Elections B.C. was Friday, Aug. 5 at 4:30 p.m. Elections B.C. will announce how many ballots were returned once all the packages are in from the collection centres and Service B.C. The packages are sorted, scanned and verified before the actual votes are counted. Elections B.C. spokesman Don Main said they are hoping to release the referendum results by Aug. 25. The referendum will be decided by a simple majority, and the results are binding.

Two people were hospitalized after a Monday afternoon motorcycle crash in North Burnaby. The crash, which occurred on Hastings Street between Fell Avenue and Holdom Avenue, involved a motorcycle slamming into the back of a car. The motorcycle broke into two pieces from the impact of the collision.

A woman who was thrown from the motorcycle suffered a suspected broken leg. The driver is also in hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. Hastings Street was closed for several hours as police investigators collected evidence.

If there was a consensus about what caused the last recession, it was that letting financial wizards do whatever they want is not a good idea. That selling homes to anyone with a pulse is not good business sense. And that there was too much debt, both private and public, sloshing around. In three years, the sub-prime mortgage part has pretty much taken care of itself in the U.S. The other two parts? Not so much. The response of governments, at

home and abroad, was to prop up and restart the same system that got us into this mess. A few new rules were passed here, a few regulations there, but we upgraded from an Edsel to a Pinto, at best. We need to look at the way our economy works and consider if it really does. Work, that is. Is it doing what we want it to do, and can it be changed for the better? The old saying here is apt.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Count post-deadline HST votes

Dear Editor:

The deadline to drop off our ballots for the HST referendum came upon us at 4:30 p.m. on Friday Aug. 5. As predicted and as usual, many procrastinators wasted their valuable ballots by being late. Now, whether the results will be for or against the HST, undoubtedly the losers will be in an uproar with countless excuses to why they were late on casting their ballots. Unfortunately, the truth is it doesn’t matter when or how a deadline is decided on, the chronic procrastinators will always be procrastinators and miss that deadline. However, that said, I do hope the government, to eliminate a lot of criticism, and more importantly,

City: Closer look at spending continued from page 6

quietly been leading the consultation phase. It will continue through the upcoming Union of B.C. Municipalities convention this fall. The new office will likely be modelled on the provincial auditor-general, who is an independent officer of the legislature and who has the ability to scrutinize government operations and spending decisions. Some of the B.C. auditor-general’s investigations have led to embarrassments for the provincial government over the years. One has to assume there is potential for a municipal version to do the same thing. Municipal politicians love to insist they are the most accountable of all government because they are “closest” to the voters. But this is nonsense, of course. Voter turnout in muni-

cipal and school board elections is even lower than those for provincial and federal elections. As well, municipal governments garner nowhere near the media scrutiny aimed at other levels of government. A typical municipality may have a reporter from the local paper covering the council meetings, but small papers don’t have the resources to offer much more than that. By comparison, three television stations, several radio stations, four daily newspapers and a host of other news outlets cover the B.C. government with dozens of reporters every day. It’s unlikely media coverage of municipal politicians will increase any time soon, but those politicians will soon find themselves under the scrutiny of auditors who will be able to walk into municipal halls all over the province and ask to

see the books. I’m not suggesting that a bunch of wrongdoing will be discovered, but I’d be surprised if independent auditors don’t look askance at some of the spending decisions that occur in city governments around the province. Such issues as six-digit salaries for management staff, expense accounts and travel allowances for politicians, and benefit packages for unionized staff may soon be on the table in a way that we haven’t seen before. Those kinds of spending items may be framed against the steady rise in property taxes, which is an issue that will grow in importance in the months ahead.

Blues: Mayall still loves the music In 2008, he disbanded the Bluesbreakers – although not retiring himself from the touring circuit. Mayall, whom Clapton once described as running “an incredibly great school for musicians,” said his advice to fledgling guitarists looking to make it a career is to stay true to themselves. “My suggestion is don’t play like anybody else. Put your own sound in there. Be honest with yourself and stay true to yourself. It’s also all about being at the right place at the right time, it’s luck. Start with what you know and be your own

self-expression.” But to him, the process of creating music is still fresh. “I feel lucky when people find and appreciate my music. I love the opportunity to make records and go out and confront people after. I’ll be here as long as that is there.” Mayall will be playing from 7:10 to 8:25 p.m., with k.d. lang (the final act) following from 8:45 to 10 p.m. at the Lake Stage.

Fees hit families in Africa


Resident says it costs too much to transfer money to family in Kenya

Sign up TODAY at

Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

As a community social services student at Douglas College, Burnaby resident Pascal Apuwa doesn’t have a lot of extra money to throw around. The little extra he does have, he sends home to his family in Korogocho, Kenya. But the fees on remittances – money transferred from someone in one country to another – are cutting into the amount his family receives, he said. “When I send money back home, I want it to go to helping the people,” Apuwa said in a phone interview. Apuwa headed a demonstration by Acorn Canada on July 27 outside the Money Mart at 7088 Kingsway, to protest the fees that Western Union charges on sending remittances overseas. Money Mart acts as an agent for Western Union. The group presented a letter for Western Union’s CEO to the agent there, Apuwa said. Apuwa has lived in Burnaby since 2006. When he was working, he could send home as much as $100 or $200 every month. Last week, he was able to send $60 to his family. But the service charge was $10, and Western Union makes money by increasing the exchange rate, as well, he said.



Larry Wright/burnaby now

Are fees too high? Pascal Apuwa joins a group protesting outside of a Burnaby Money Mart – an agent for Western Union.

That money would come to almost 1,000 Kenyan shillings, which could pay for groceries for two weeks in his hometown, Apuwa explained. It could also pay for much-needed medicine, he pointed out. “This is money that could save someone’s life,” Apuwa said. Every cent is needed in East Africa right now, he added, particularly with the drought and famine. Apuwa, and Acorn Canada, want regulation of the remittance transferring industry and more transparency so that banks and transfer agencies cannot charge hidden fees. The issue is one that is also recognized by the World Bank. In 2009, the World Bank developed the Rome Road Map for Remittances plan, with the primary goal of banks

and agencies charging five per cent remittance fees on transactions by 2014. Recorded remittances received in developing countries came to US$325 billion in 2010, according to a World Bank report. “Recorded remittances,” the report stated, “far exceed the volume of official aid flows and constitute more than 10 per cent of gross domestic product in many developing countries.” Kenya received US$1.758 billion in remittances in 2010, the report said. Current remittance service charges at various banks and agencies vary wildly, according to information obtained by Acorn Canada, and many have a flat fee rather than charging a percentage. Western Union’s transfer fee on Wednesday was a flat rate of $11.00, according

to the company’s website. Bank fees for transferring money to Kenya can be much higher, ranging from a $10 flat fee to a $30 flat fee, according to Acorn Canada’s research. This does not include money made on elevated exchange rates or hidden fees. But Apuwa said he has only one choice when it comes to sending money to Korogocho – Western Union. “It’s the only one that can be found in a small town,” he said, adding that sending money to a larger city through a bank would mean his family would have to travel to pick it up, costing them more. “I hope to see the charges reduced and regulated,” he said of the fees. Western Union did not respond to requests for an interview by press time.

Community pillar: Longtime volunteer and seniors’ advocate Grace Joe, seen here in a 2003 photo, passed away in July. Her memorial will be held Saturday, Aug. 20 at the South Burnaby United Church.

‘A mother to everyone she met’

Memorial service for Grace Joe set for Aug. 20 Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

A longtime community figure has passed away. Grace Joe, former winner of Burnaby’s Kushiro Cup, died on July 12. Every year, the Kushiro Cup goes to Burnaby’s Citizen of the Year, and Joe received the honour in 2002 for her outstanding contributions to the community. “Wherever there’s a need, wherever there’s a call, I will go,” Joe told the NOW in 2003. “You can (volunteer), any time, anywhere. You don’t have to wait for the

opportunity. It just presents itself.” Joe was a registered nurse who taught nursing in Victoria, Vancouver and New Westminster. She also studied gerontology at SFU and taught English as a second language. She spent five decades volunteering for the benefit of others. She helped the Bonsor Seniors’ Society Health Alert program and volunteered with groups like the city’s Citizen Support Services. She helped other seniors, by taking them shopping, assisting with tax forms or keeping the isolated ones company. She donated blood and also worked with the RCMP’s victim services program. In a note to the NOW, Joe’s daughter, Gail, described what her mother meant to

others. “Mom was not only the matriarch in our family, but was also a mother to everyone she met. Her caring nature for people made them feel very special because she took such an interest in them. This compassion resulted in over 50 years of volunteer work that she did with society.” Joe also received the O’Keefe Shining Light Award for her work with seniors. In 2007, she received the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award for her “outstanding and selfless contribution to the community and to Canada.” Joe’s memorial service will be on Saturday, Aug. 20, at 10:30 a.m. in South Burnaby United Church, at 7591 Gray Ave. – where she taught Sunday school.

Please Mum closes two local shops Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Children’s clothing company Please Mum has closed its doors at the Brentwood and Lougheed town centres. The closures came with little notice in early July, according to Brentwood Town Centre manager Brian Wong. The company’s location at Metropolis at Metrotown is still open, as are two other locations in the Lower Mainland; on West Broadway in Vancouver and at Willowbrook Mall in Langley.

Please Mum closed 68 stores in early July, leaving just 21 open across the country. The Vancouver-based company filed for creditor protection in mid-July and laid off 750 employees. “There has been a massive increase in competition from the U.S. and other countries,” Please Mum founder and CEO Kathryn Adrian said in an email interview with The Vancouver Sun. “This comes as a result of the recession down south. The recession there, and to a degree here, has changed the market’s

focus from ‘hand-me-down’ quality to less quality but a lot cheaper prices.” An administrator for the company’s toll-free line said the media relations line had been disconnected, but redirected the NOW to customer service – and another line for the media – which was consistently busy throughout the day on Wednesday, Aug. 3. The company is only honouring exchanges and returns on purchases made before filing for bankruptcy on July 11, according to the Please Mum

website, and all merchandise purchased after that date is a final sale. Gift cards are not being accepted, the website also stated. The website is offering deals of 30 to 70 per cent for merchandise. The company is protected from creditors’ claims – including employees – for 30 days after filing for bankruptcy protection while it comes up with a restructuring plan.

Pipe band at worlds Members of the SFU Pipe Band are hoping to snag top spot in the world championships this weekend in Glasgow, Scotland. Since the early ‘90s, the band has often placed in the top three spots in world competition. The group formed in 1966 and now has more than 40 members, led by Pipe Major Terry Lee. This year, the band is playing with a former rival: Robert Mathieson from a Scottish band called The House of Edgar Shotts & Dykehead. “This is huge in the piping world,” said SFU’s Pipe Sergeant Jack Lee. “It would be like the Canucks signing Sidney Crosby.” After Mathieson retired earlier this

year, Terry invited him to join the SFU Pipe Band, “I asked him what he was planning to do next and whether he’d consider coming to Canada to do something fresh,” Terry said. Mathieson said it took two seconds for him to say yes to join the “serial tour de force” in the pipe band world. “This isn’t about being parachuted in for the world championships,” he said. “I’m here to join the band. I’m in it for the long haul, not just for the one season.” The World Pipe Band Championships draw 40,000 spectators and competitors from 16 nations.

Movers: New look for local café continued from page 11

Take Five changes its look

Take Five Café, founded by Burnaby’s Punzo family, has redeveloped its look this summer. Over the next few weeks, the café’s locations – including the one at Metropolis at Metrotown – will reopen with a more modern appearance and a focus on the café’s inspiration, coffee. “We’ve changed the look and feel of the cafés, but the much-loved coffee and Italian-inspired foods remain the same,” said co-founder Steve Punzo in a press release. Steve opened the first Take Five Café with his brother, Dean, in 2003 on Granville Street in Vancouver. Both worked at Caffé de Medici in the

‘80s and took over the business from their father in 1995. The company is also expanding, with a new location in Richmond, and one opening in the Brewery District in New Westminster this fall.

A Shave and a Hair Cut

by Janaya Fuller Evans The Heights Contributor

Martin Brautigan spent nearly 50 years of his life as a barber in Burnaby Heights. The former owner of Top Barbers – known as Mart’s Barbershop during his reign – is relieved to see the 65-yearold shop in good hands today. “I was happy to see the business come back to life,” Brautigan says. Brautigan began working at the barbershop in 1949 for then-owner Ernie Chesham, he says. The shop first opened in 1946. Brautigan went to barber school in 1947 and never looked back. “It always looked like a good steady job,” Brautigan says. He bought the shop from his employer in 1972. Brautigan, who grew up on a dairy farm near Mission, has seen the Heights grow and change over the years. He remembers when the streetcars still ran along Hastings Street and houses sat beside businesses, he says. “I used to go to the Regent Theatre after work,” he says, adding the spot between MacDonald and Gilmore avenues is now a doctor’s office. While the amount of clients fluctuated over the years, Brautigan says he always made a good living, most often working in the shop by himself. “They were mostly ordinary working people,” he says of the clientele, adding he had about 90 per cent repeat business. The only difficult time was during the ‘70s, Brautigan says. “When the hippies came in, business slowed down,” he ... Continued on page B3 ...

The joy of blueberries ON COOKING


Chef Dez

ummertime always offers a bountiful harvest of fresh fruit and berries – and blueberries are, by far, one of my favourites. As a matter of fact, I just finished performing a number of live cooking shows where blueberries were the main focus. They are not only packed full of nutrition and flavour but are also a very versatile cooking ingredient. Upon any investigation into foods that are rich in antioxidants, you will always find berries at the top of the list. Blueberries have all the other berries beat when it comes to antioxidant levels. The health benefits that we gain from foods abundant in antioxidants are too numerous to list in complete detail but include anti-aging, lower cholesterol, strong immune resistance to flus and viruses and reduction in risks of cancer and heart disease. This being said, it is in our best interest to attempt to introduce blueberries into our meals whenever possible. The first idea that crosses most people’s minds

when considering blueberries as an ingredient is desserts, but blueberries also compliment many savoury dishes quite well. Here are two suggestions for you to experiment with in the kitchen: ◆ Red Meat: Since blueberries are very dark and intensely flavoured, they tend to stand up to meats that are also very bold. A red wine pan gravy on steaks, roasted beef, or lamb, for example, is always complimented by the rich intensity of a couple handfuls of blueberries cooked down in it. Simply strain out the skins for a smooth syrupy sauce. ◆ Salads: When dealing with acids in vinaigrettes, blueberries work well as added sweetness, either as a salad ingredient or pureed into the dressing, to help tone down the sharp notes of vinegars, lemon and lime juices. The result is a smoother, more complex taste. One last thing to remember is that blueberries are also enhanced by the taste of balsamic vinegar. Try this at home tonight: take a handful of blueberries, wash and dry them and toss with a teaspoon of balsamic, and a sprinkle of sugar if desired. The blueberries and the balsamic are both bold flavours and pair quite well. Keeping this in mind will also assist you with the inclusion of blue-

berries in red meat and salad dishes as mentioned above. ◆ Dear Chef Dez: I love buying blueberries from our local farms in large quantities at a great price. What is the best way to freeze them? How long should I keep them? Joseph C. Mission, B.C. Dear Joseph: Blueberries are best frozen individually to make it easier to retrieve a certain measurement when they are frozen, rather than defrosting a solid mass of them. I find the best way to do this is by laying them all out on baking sheets, freeze them completely and then transfer to sealable freezer bags. To make it easier to use them direct from their frozen state, I suggest washing them prior to freezing, however they would also need to be dried before going onto the sheet pans. Wet berries will freeze not only to each other but also to the pan, making it much more difficult to transfer into the freezer bags. I suggest keeping frozen blueberries for up to a year for best results. Send your food/cooking questions to dez@chefdez. com or to PO Box 2674, Abbotsford, B.C., V2T 6R4.

Gardening with ‘naked ladies’ GREEN SCENE Anne Marrison


ery soon a spectacular fall flowerer with many names will be available in garden centres – today it’s usually called autumn crocus after its flowering time and the shape of its large, gobletshaped flowers in purplepink, mauve or white. Old-time names include: Naked Ladies and Naked Boys because the flowers usually emerge before the leaves. Sometimes it’s called Wonder Bulb since it’s capable of flowering when bare bulbs are left on a windowsill. Botanically it’s called Colchicum. Because it’s beautiful, easy to grow, tolerant of adversity and adaptable to most variations of sun and shade, it’s a wonderful asset for any garden with average soil. This is one of the plants that survives for years in very old, untended gardens. Though Colchicum bulbs aren’t cheap, they’re great value because they’re long-flowering and increase fast into large mats without adventuring into places where they’re not wanted. The two extreme situations that can kill them are dry, dense shade and swampy or flooded conditions. Their ideal situation is a few hours of sun daily and well-drained soil that doesn’t dry out severely. During August, gardeners who want autumn crocus for their garden will need to move fast to acquire them. Once spring bulbs arrive, the autumn bulbs either sell out or vanish from stock. It’s also important to plant the bulbs before leaves begin to grow, and they should never be moved while leaves are visible. I tried this once as an experiment, and it took several years for flowers to reappear. All Colchicum are very hardy in this climate. They accept acid or alkaline soil but can have trouble in extremely nutritious soil. Bonemeal is good nourishment for them. Easily available Colchicum include some Colchicum speciosum hybrids such as the giant (which is very tall, mauve and white-throated) and water lily, a double pink which is inclined to flop. Another popular bulb is

Colchicum autumnale, a smaller, later-blooming white version which also has white stems. Earlier blooms lean over and become a white mat surrounding the later, upright flowers. Garden club plant sales are a good place for gar-

deners seeking unusual Colchicum bulbs. Seed can be found on the soil at the base of the leaves in spring, but collecting it needs care and latex gloves. Colchicum is very poisonous. Send gardening questions to

Alberta Magic turns Westerns to gold Tom Berridge sports editor

The Strathmore Magic finally got its gold. After six consecutive trips to the Western Canadian junior fastpitch championships and a silver medal in last year’s final, the Alberta provincial champions came away as the overall winner following a 9-0 victory over the Prince Albert Aces at Squint Lake Park in Burnaby on Sunday. The Magic lost last year’s Western title in a failed 8-6 comeback against the Saskatchewan Cave Lady Diamondbacks. The year before, Strathmore came home with a bronze medal. This season, the Magic made no mistake against the No. 1 Saskatchewan club, dealing the Aces a five-inning mercy rule defeat. “It’s pretty emotional,” said the Magic’s 71-yearold co-head coach Ron Walmsley. “I have a girl who started with me as a midget who nobody wanted. It’s our first Western championship. We have won more silver medals than Christie’s has biscuits. It was their time to win.” After finishing the preliminary round in second place behind B.C. No. 2 Victoria Kaos, Strathmore eked its way into the championship final with a 6-5 win in extra innings over the eventual third-place Island team. FirstbaseStaciWhitnack got the game-winning hit for the Magic. “(The Magic) is a great,

great team. They fight all the time, not against each other, and that’s even better,” said Walmsley, who has coached for 47 years. B.C. host Ridge Meadows Rage finished in fourth place. Provincial champions Burnaby Hurricanes was sixth overall in pool play. “We’re disappointed but the Prairie competition is really hard. You know you’re going to meet them in the finals,” said Josie Bradley, president of

Burnaby senior fastpitch and chair of the Western Canadian championships. Two of Burnaby’s losses came against Strathmore and Prince Albert in the first two days of tournament play. The Hurricanes also dropped a 9-1 decision to Saskatchewan No. 2 on Saturday. “In the games we lost, we left at least 14 girls on base each game. Our problem wasn’t hitting or getting on base, it was finishing it off,” said Bradley.

Strathmore’s Katrina Anderson was the top batter, hitting .476 in the qualifying rounds. Prince Albert’s Laurie Earle was the top pitcher, allowing just eight hits while striking out 22 batters in 18 innings work. Kara Shelly of the Victoria Kaos was named the MVP, batting seven for 27 at the plate, while making seven putouts with no errors. Despite Burnaby’s overall finish, Bradley said she

received winning compliments from the visiting teams on the park venue and the city itself. “At night it was just like the Field of Dreams,” said Bradley. After the success of last week’s Western Canadian hosting, Burnaby Fastpitch is also considering putting its name forward for the senior B men’s and women’s championships next year. “We’re going to put in a bid,” Bradley said.

four rebounds and two steals in the final game. In the semifinal, Roberts potted 19 points and added eight assists to lift B.C. to a 77-63 win over Nova Scotia. New Westminster’s Ariana Sider also chipped in with five points in the semifinal. Roberts, who was named tournament MVP at this year’s B.C. high school AA provincial final where York House won a second straight banner, was named

player of the game with 19 points and five assists in an 82-63 win over Saskatchewan on Day 4 of the week-long competition. In u-15 girls’ play, Amanda Zacharuk of New Westminster scored four points in B.C.’s 65-53 loss to eventual champion Ontario in the semifinals. B.C. went on to win the bronze medal with a 65-53 victory over Alberta. In Toronto, Team B.C. finished runner-up to Ontario following a

71-44 loss in the final of the u-15 boys’ national championships on July 6. St. Thomas More’s Jalen Jana was named to the first all-star team following the competition. B.C. earned a bronze medal in the u-17 boys’ division, defeating Alberta 84-62 in the consolation final. Burnaby’s Denzel Laguerta of STM netted two points in B.C.’s 44-16 loss in the semifinals to eventual champion Ontario.

B.C. just missed winning a gold medal at the Bantam Lacrosse Championships of Canada in Whitby, Ont. The provincial team, including Marcus Vela of Burnaby, fell 4-3 to Ontario in the championship final Saturday. B.C. eked its way into the gold-medal final with a 3-2 win over Iroquois Nation in the semifinal matchup between the second- and third-place teams. Ontario earned a bye into the championship final. Team B.C. lost to Iroquois 5-4 in the final day of the round robin. B.C. also dropped an earlier 11-3 decision to Ontario on Aug. 3. New Westminster’s Max Gerhardt and Port Coquitlam’s Brodie Gillespie led Team B.C., both with 22 points. Vela contributed nine points. Iroquois went on to take the bronze medal, beating Alberta 8-6. Manitoba took the B gold medal with a 62 win over Saskatchewan. Quebec beat Nova Scotia for the B bronze. The B.C. midget and peewee box teams both came home with a bronze medal. The B.C. team, including Matthew Shannik and Danny Spagnuolo of Burnaby, got by Alberta 9-8 in double overtime to take the consolation medal, following a 7-4 loss to Team Iroquois in the semifinal Friday. The West Coast reps lost an earlier 7-3 decision to both Iroquois and Ontario in preliminary round play. Shannik scored the game-tying goal that sent the game into OT against Alberta. Shannik finished in a second-place tie with 15 points in B.C. team scoring, including seven goals. Spagnuolo also had seven goals and 11 points. Lacrosse Page 22

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins showed the impact that he can bring to a team, rallying Team White to a 54 win over Team Red at the National junior hockey team development camp in Edmonton Saturday. Trailing 4-1 five minutes into the final period, Nugent-Hopkins finished off the comeback, tallying the game-winning goal between the pads of Louis Domingue in the final 20 seconds of the contest.

Here's How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
