Does farmers’ market need to move? Current museum site has posed problems, and market wants feedback from public Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

Should we stay or should we go? That’s the question Burnaby Village Farmers’ Market manager Lyn Hainstock wants Burnaby residents to answer about the market’s current location. The farmers’ market relocated to its cur-

rent site at the Burnaby Village Museum from its former spot in the city hall parking lot this year. But the move has been fraught with problems, Hainstock said, and customers are divided on whether the market should stay in the same spot next year or move back to city hall. “At the moment, it’s really 50-50,” she said of the responses. “They absolutely adore it or they absolutely hate it.” Hainstock wants to get feedback from people who were previously customers at the market but have stopped coming.

The move has discouraged cyclists, dog owners and seniors from coming to the market, she said. Bikes and dogs are not allowed in the village museum, but many of the market’s former customers were cyclists and about 30 per cent brought their dogs, Hainstock estimated. Seniors have been unhappy with the move because there is limited parking in front of the museum, and there’s a steep incline to the parking in the back, she added, so it is difficult mobility-wise. On the other hand, Hainstock said,

families love the new location, as their children can explore the museum while they shop. But customers who do come are buying less, according to Hainstock, possibly because it is difficult to get purchases back to their cars. “The feeling is, the vendors are losing,” she said, adding some are taking home only a few hundred dollars per week. The market has created a survey for current and former customers, asking if they want the market to stay at the

Oh, what a beautiful production ON MY BEAT

T

Julie MacLellan

here’s much laughter in the room as the actors gather at the front of the room for a photo to help spread the word about New Vista Care Home’s new production of Oklahoma! There’s a little fussing about where to stand, who to look at, and whether or not the butter churn stage prop – which photographer Larry Wright is attempting to incorporate into the shot – really needs to be in the photo. “When you’re dressed like this, you don’t churn butter,” explains Grace Jensen, who’s turned out in a flowered hat and a buttercup yellow dress with a full skirt for her star turn as Laurey. “That’s not my work clothes, that’s my going partying clothes.” She wins, of course. Wright doesn’t stand a chance against the combined forces of Jensen and her co-star Grace Magnus, who’s appearing as Ado Annie and is similarly decked out in a full flowered skirt and straw hat. But the good-natured fussing stops almost instantly when music therapist Kristine Theurer takes a seat at the piano and breaks into the strains of Oh What A Beautiful Morning. Then, seemingly lit by an invisible switch, Jensen, Magnus and their handsome cowboy, Don McLean as Curly, are alight with the joy of the music. In that instant, it’s easy to see why Theurer is such a big booster of New Vista’s annual musical production. “It’s a magical process,” Theurer says. he musical is one of many programs Theurer and the other staff members work on with the seniors, and it’s a big one. It’s been in the planning stages over the past six months, as the seniors – both residents and those attending the home’s adult day program – chose the musical and worked on every aspect it, from props and sets and costumes, to singing in the choir and learning the lead roles, to making invitations to send into the community. The production is an abridged

version of the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, and the seniors also chose which songs to leave in the production and which to cut. At every step, the focus is on having the seniors take the lead; where needed, staff and volunteers help, but everything is focused on the seniors first. Theurer points out it would be easy to be skeptical about such an undertaking, especially given that many of the seniors involved face physical or cognitive challenges. But history shows that it works. Past years have seen the group stage such musicals as Mary Poppins, My Fair Lady and The Sound of Music. Every time, the care home’s large activity room is packed with people. “They always get a standing ovation,” Theurer says with a smile. She’s quick to note, though, that the end result isn’t the point. “Our focus is not on the show

but how much fun we have getting there,” she says. “We always focus on the process and not the outcome.” Her stars are quick to agree. Magnus says nobody ever gets mad if you make a mistake. “We don’t care if people forget their lines,” Theurer says. “Which happens quite a lot,” Jensen interjects with a laugh. Theurer says a key part of the musical’s success lies in the fact that it’s open to everyone. “Anybody who wants to be part of this production can be part of it,” she says. The show includes a choir, about 30 voices strong – a group that’s affectionately dubbed “the no-talent-required choir.” “We’re a very interesting assortment of people who come together,” Theurer says with a smile. n her leads, Theurer says she’s found some natural performing ability. In Jensen’s case, it’s dance.

“I’ve always loved to dance,” she says, with a smile that lights up her eyes. “You’re lovely on stage,” Theurer tells her. “You’re just such a natural.” For Magnus – who jokes that she got a role in the musical because “I happened to be in the way” – it was an acting ability and stage presence that Theurer discovered when the group staged A Christmas Carol a few years ago. Magnus played Ebenezer Scrooge. “She was something else,” Theurer says. “We discovered that she had this hidden talent.” That has proven to be true for many of the seniors involved, Theurer says. “You put the spotlight on them, and they just shine.” or McLean, being part of the musical has been about more than just being on stage. “I enjoy it thoroughly,” he says with a broad smile. “It’s companionship, and you meet

new people each time too, so you know them for the next performance.” Jensen, a newcomer to the centre’s day program, says she too has enjoyed the chance to become part of a group. “I’ve had a marvellous time. Everybody’s made me feel so welcome,” she says. “I can’t wait to come back.” And she believes the whole process of staging the musical has been good for all of them. “When you’ve been doing it for a wee while, you get your confidence a bit. You don’t care if people are laughing at you,” she says with a smile. Magnus, too, offers up a grin. “We can do anything,” she says. Their united pleasure makes Theurer smile. “It just shows you,” she says. “Anything’s possible.” Oklahoma was on stage Tuesday, after press deadlines.

Burnaby’s right-leaning civic party has announced a full slate of school board candidates.

Who doesn’t pay tax? The City of Burnaby presented its list of organizations to receive tax exemption in 2012. In all, 11 non-profit organizations that are tenants of the city were approved for exemption, as well as seven other community groups. The Pacific Assistance Dogs Society was approved for a 50 per cent exemption. Another 11 properties owned by the city but occupied by the Burnaby school district were also given exemption. Seven sports and recreational groups were recommended for exemption by the parks commission. Four hospital and health organizations were also approved for exemption from paying property taxes, and 79 churches and religious schools in Burnaby. Another seven nonprofit, charitable and philanthropic organizations were given exemptions, though most were 50 per cent or partial. The Royal Canadian Legion on Hastings Street, which has asked for full exemption in the past, received a partial exemption for 2012. – Janaya Fuller-Evans

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Criticism of job plan is ‘farcical’

Dear Editor:

Listening to Adrian Dix’s finance critic, Bruce Ralston, on a radio call-in show this week, as he tried to explain why the NDP oppose Premier Christy Clark’s investment in the Prince Rupert port expansion and the Kitimat LNG plant, was almost farcical. Basically, the NDP’s argument was that we would be better off paying for people to go to school. OK, so let me get this straight: the NDP’s jobs plan is to spend millions upon millions of taxpayer dollars to educate people for jobs that don’t exist, while simultaneously opposing tax cuts and investments in projects that would actually create jobs

that people could actually train for. Way to go Mr. Dix, you must have stayed up all night coming up with that plan. Like a lot of British Columbians, I don’t miss the days of endless deficits, special-interest corruption and unemployment that Mr. Dix’s last tenure in government produced. And it looks like he’s not changed one bit since then. Whether it’s finding new and exciting ways to send jobs out of the province, like taxing the pants off people and small businesses, or whether it’s “fresh ideas” like taking the forestry industry back to the 1950s and trying to compete with paper and product manufacturers in the global market, clearly Mr. Dix just doesn’t get it.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dix doesn’t get it continued from page 6

The NDP were not kicked out of office in 2001 because the people were bored. They were kicked out because they just can’t see past their own noses and make decisions only in the favour of special interests, not the people’s interest. British Columbia is poised to be a leading economy in the 21st century. Premier Christy Clark gets that fact while Mr. Dix is clearly attempting to capture our hearts and minds by opposing investments in jobs for B.C. Perhaps the NDP is the one in need of an education. Pamela Gardner, Burnaby

Job plan worth the wait Dear Editor:

Premier Christy Clark may have had to wait to launch her jobs plan, but it’s been well worth waiting for. Especially the announcement of funding to help get Phase 1 of the Prince Rupert port expansion underway. It’s a key project that will create jobs throughout B.C. for decades. The premier’s vision for B.C. to be the economic engine for a 21st-century Canada is timely and forward-thinking,

but clearly something that the neither NDP nor the B.C. Conservative Party seem to get. While NDP leader Adrian Dix talks off the top of his head about training credits for job categories that don’t exist here in B.C., and therefore have no relevance, John Cummins haphazardly flips and flops his way across the province leaving a trail of contradictory policies and statements. B.C. needs new dollars, but how are we going to get them if we simply stand back and watch the world go by as Mr. Dix and Mr. Cummins seem to be suggesting in their criticism of the premier’s jobs plan? The only way we can bring new dollars into the province is by opening up our doors to greater trade with the rapidly expanding Asia-Pacific markets. After all, the best defence of jobs in our economy is a strong offense that aggressively markets and then delivers our products and services to the world. So, if the economy is the engine and B.C. is the car, I’m one person who is very happy that Christy Clark is in the driver’s seat, with her foot the economic accelerator, while Mr. Dix and Mr. Cummins are sitting in the back seat where they belong. Brian Bonney, Burnaby

Jobs: Economy is fragile now continued from page 6

its exposure to external problems. As a result, stock markets are recording spectacular rises and falls (mostly the latter, unfortunately). Collectively, this is not a minor economic hiccup. This has all the earmarks of another global economic crisis, one that may be more serious and more entrenched than the 2008 meltdown. And in the midst of all this comes little B.C., whose gross domestic product is about the same size as the GDP of the states of Louisiana or Alabama, touting a new jobs plan. Ironically, on the same day Clark touted the creation of eight new mines, commodity prices nosedived. That’s a reminder of how fragile things are right now and why assuming investment dollars are

going to magically materialize is not a reasonable bet right now. Further hampering B.C.’s economy in the short-term is the lingering hangover that goes with getting rid of the HST. The housing and home repair sectors, in particular, may be hard hit because many consumers will put off building a house or doing major renovations until the tax is gone, more than a year from now. Now, none of this is to say Clark and her government shouldn’t do anything to create jobs. In fact, her government is already engaged in a fairly hefty stimulus exercise, spending almost $10 billion over the next few years to build such things as the Port Mann Bridge, the South Fraser Perimeter Road, new schools and health facilities, and massive upgrades to B.C. Hydro’s infrastructure.

The jobs that flow from that kind of capital spending will likely dwarf anything created by the new jobs plan, at least until the world economy is on much, much safer and firm footing. The best thing Clark can hope for from her plan may actually be more about using it to turn political discourse in this province towards the issues of the economy and employment. Even if there’s a downturn, it may work to Clark’s advantage. The NDP always seems to struggle in winning the trust of the voters on the critical issue of managing the province through difficult economic times. Canada Starts Here may be a catchy slogan, but until the world economy settles down it may be little more than that. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global B.C.

museum, or to return to the city hall parking lot. Those interested in responding can fill a survey out at the market up until Oct. 8, or can email a response, including name and phone number, to info@artisanmarkets.ca, Hainstock said. The market has faced challenges because of the weather, as well. On its opening weekend in May, the market was hit by a deluge of rain, according to Hainstock. “We weren’t expecting monsoon weather,” she told the NOW in an interview that week.

Staff at the museum have been working to accommodate the market, she said, helping vendors relocate along the roadways in the village museum, to get out of the mud. “Staff have been bending over backwards for us,” she said. But if customers vote to return the market to the city hall parking lot, Hainstock said, she will apply to go back. If customers vote to keep it at its current location, though, the museum would need to continue to provide free admission next year, she pointed out, so customers could access the market.

Admission has been free for the Burnaby Village Museum’s 40th anniversary year. The move has increased attendance but cut revenues, as the loss of admission was not covered by gift shop purchases, food services or donations, Dave Ellenwood, Burnaby’s director of parks, recreation and cultural services, told the NOW in July. The farmers’ market has been at the village every Saturday since its first weekend on May 7 and continues to run on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. until Oct. 29.

MLAs get new posts in cabinet Premier Christy Clark announced a cabinet shuffle on Monday, Sept. 26, and Burnaby’s two Liberal MLAs have new posts. Stephanie Cadieux is the new minister of social development, replacing Burnaby-Lougheed MLA Harry Bloy, who becomes the minister of state for multiculturalism. Burnaby North MLA Richard Lee is now the AsiaPacific parliamentary secretary for the minister of jobs, tourism and innovation. “I’m excited about this. It’s a very good portfolio,” said Lee, who was previously parliamentary secretary for multiculturalism. Before that, Lee held a similar role for six years as parliamentary secretary for the Asia Pacific initiative, which was designed to promote B.C. exports to Asia. Lee said he imagines his new post will be similar. Margaret MacDiarmid is the new minister of labour, citizen services and open government. Ron Cantelon is now seniors’ parliamentary secretary to the health minister. Gordon Hogg becomes the “non-profit partnerships” parliamentary secretary for the social development minister. Donna Barnett is now rural communities parliamentary secretary for the minister of community, sport and cultural development. Bloy was not available for comment. – Jennifer Moreau

newly eligible people, it in effect becomes a budget cut,” she said. “Their operating budget for funding of services, they have not had an increase in at least the last two fiscal years. … But they are continuing to serve more people, so how do you serve more people when you don’t have any real dollars to do it with? You cut services to those who have some. So that’s

what they’ve been doing. … That’s not sustainable and it’s caused instability in the sector, people are feeling under attack and extremely vulnerable.” Some of those cut services include reduced hours of help for people with developmental disabilities, or reduced levels of support, and some people have been moved from specialized group homes to private

homes. As for the Douglas College program, Bodnar said the students’ families should have been consulted before Community Living B.C. made the funding cuts. “You don’t cut the program and consult with the people after the fact,” she said. According to Bodnar, Community Living B.C has a budget of about $800 mil-

lion each year for services, and the agency needs an estimated $30 million extra annually to meet rising demand. Until recently, Bloy was minister of social development, which covers services for people with developmental disabilities. On Monday, Premier Christy Clark shuffled her cabinet, and Bloy is now minister of multiculturalism.

Celebrating a lifetime of making music

Local resident gearing up for a unique musical concert Julie MacLellan staff reporter

Serendipity. George Ryan offers that one simple word as a summation of his life in music. The life path that has taken him from New Zealand, to the Kootenays, to Germany, to Vancouver, and on to New Westminster and Burnaby has been one filled with the kind of happy and unexpected fortune that he could never have foreseen back when he first sat down at a piano as a child at his great-aunt’s home. That life path will be celebrated on Sunday, Oct. 2 when Holy Trinity Cathedral offers up a retrospective concert of Ryan’s work. Dare To Dream: The Music of George Ryan is an idea that was, in part, prompted by Ryan reaching his 70th birthday. “When you get to another birthday milestone, … you start thinking, what do you leave behind, what kind of legacy do you leave?” Ryan muses, in the resonant voice that still carries a touch of his native New Zealand, over tea at his Burnaby apartment. He looked back on the career that included time teaching in Trail, B.C., a 17-year stint at St. George’s boys’ school in Vancouver, years working abroad in Germany, a long affiliation with the Bard on the Beach Shakespeare festival and, of course, his tenure as music director of Holy Trinity – and he started to realize just how much music he’d written over the course of that career. “I started finding what you might call hidden gems,” he says with a smile. At first, he thought he might record a CD of some of his own work. But then he thought how much more entertaining it would be if an audience could share his work as it was written to be heard: live, on stage, and sung by a variety of talented people. So the idea of the retrospective concert was born. The concert will feature the Holy Trinity Cathedral Choir, augmented by extra singers, and a wide range of special guests. Ryan can’t reveal them all, but expect to see some top-notch professional talent with whom he’s been associated over the years. “I think of it like a painter, a retrospective of what I think is some of my best stuff,” he says. “It shows a range of stuff that my friends at Holy Trinity don’t get to hear.” It will raise funds for two causes close to Ryan’s heart: the City Stage New West theatre company and Holy Trinity Cathedral. The concert showcases work that dates back to Ryan’s arrival in Canada. He came, incidentally, on a holiday just after Expo 67. He knew the sum total of one person in Canada then, a teacher with whom he’d worked in New Zealand and who had moved to Castlegar. Ryan arrived for a visit, armed with a $99-for-99-days Greyhound travel card to see the continent – and his friend ended up introducing him to the superintendent of schools in her district. That was in November. He was almost immediately offered a job for the following

Night’s Dream and Romeo and Juliet, will be featured on the concert program. Another contact from Ryan’s St. George’s days, who was then the warden at St. Laurence Anglican Church in Coquitlam, proved to be instrumental in getting Ryan involved in church music work that is now his primary focus. He worked as a musician at various churches before meeting John Bailey, the rector of Holy Trinity, at a church function. There, Ryan found out that Holy Trinity’s music director was moving on and there would be an opening in New Westminster – where Ryan was living at the time. “Again, serendipitous,” he says with a smile. “I have been very happy there ever since. They’ve treated me very well.” The cathedral choir, only about a dozen voices strong, has dedicated itself to learning all the music for the retrospective concert, and extra singers are coming from the Holy Trinity congregation, from St. Laurence’s and from St. George’s for the occasion. Some are even coming in from Trail. Performers from City Stage New West – for whom Ryan composed the historical New Westminster musical Stump City Stories in 2009 – will also be taking part. “It’s probably going to be a very emotional evening,” Ryan admits. “It’s also going to be a great amount of fun.” “It’s going to be a fun evening, an enjoyable evening, a chance to hear music they would probably otherwise never get to hear, performed by some very good, talented performers, with proceeds for two good causes,” he says, then adds, “At a very reasonable price.” jmaclellan@burnabynow.com

A SPECIAL SUPPLEMENT TO THE BURNABY NOW

Get knitting for a good cause HEALTH EDUCATION CAMPAIGN IS ON NOW The Click for Babies campaign, which is running throughout North America and is being organized here in B.C. by B.C. Children’s Hospital, is aimed at raising awareness about infant crying to help lower the incidence of shaken baby syndrome and infant abuse. The campaign encourages knitters and crocheters to donate baby caps in any and all shades of purple, which are then going to be handed out to new B.C. babies along with a video and booklet as part of the “Period of Purple Crying” program. The caps are being accepted until Oct. 26, either by being sent to the hospital, or at a number of yarn shops around the Lower Mainland that are accepting donations on its behalf. They’ll then be handed out starting in November, to new babies and their families at hospitals around the province, including Burnaby Hospital and Royal Columbian Hospital. Claire Yambao, an organizer with the program, says each hospital with a labour and delivery ward gets a portion of the caps for the babies born there. “The caps are distributed to all birthing hospitals in B.C. Last year we collected 4,000 caps and each birthing hospital received a one month supply,” she said. “We are hoping to meet or beat 4,000 this year.” The Period of Purple Crying program was rolled

out in B.C. hospitals several years ago, with the intent of educating new parents on what has been dubbed “PURPLE” crying – each of the letters in the word purple stand for a different facet of newborn crying which can be particularly challenging for parents. P is for “peak of crying,” which is at around two months, U is for unexpected, R is for resists soothing, P is for pain-like face, L is for long-lasting and E is for evening. The information also includes tips for parents on how to handle the crying, which can be profoundly stressful. As well, during a yarn swap this week in Vancouver, a free table will be set up where people can donate purple yarn to the Click for Babies campaign. The Vancouver Yarn Swap is set for tomorrow, Sept. 29 at 6 p.m. at the Vancouver Alpen Club, 4875 Victoria Dr. For more information, see www.clickforbabies.org or go to www.dontshake.ca for information on local drop-offs for caps.

A closer look at the aging brain Strauch, the New York Times’ deputy science editor and author of the Secret Life of the Grown-Up Brain (Penguin), to explain.

What causes memory loss?

L

augh lines, a few grey hairs and those hardto-lose pounds – along with a frustrating inability to recall names or what you did last Tuesday – are all signs of middle age. And while memory problems may seem inevitable, new research shows that the middle-age brain still has a few surprises of its own.We asked Barbara

The processing speed in our brains slows down from our 20s onward, we can lose some neurotransmitters and get distracted more easily.The truth is, by midlife, most of our brains show some fraying around the edges, and names are often the first edge to go ragged.The names are not technically gone. Research into the cellular activity of where most memories are processed indicates that much of what we learn in the form of chemical markers is not missing, it’s just at the bottom of the pile.

For the most part, it’s a problem of retrieval, not storage. If you forget your husband’s boss’s name is Ed, it might be embarrassing at an office party. But it’s not Alzheimer’s.

So memory loss is not due to dying brain cells? They used to think that we lost 30 per cent of our brain cells. Now, in counting them, they found we don’t lose them. There are recent findings, too, that show how the middle-aged brain, rather than giving up and giving in, adapts. As we age, our brains power up, not down, to solve problems.

How does the middle age brain “power up?” As researchers at Duke

University and elsewhere have found, people in middle age begin to use two sides of their brains instead of one – a trick called bilateralization. As we age, the two sides of our brains become more intertwined, letting us see bigger patterns, have bigger thoughts. Those who recruit the strength of their brains’ powerful frontal cortex, in particular, develop what scientists call ‘cognitive reserve,’ thought to be a buffer against the effects of aging.

Does bilateralization occur in all aging brains? It’s not the weakest brains that do this but the most robust ones. A series of recent studies has found that it is the most

musicforyourears

capable who resort to this trick. It’s as if the best and the brightest older brains simply refuse to give in. Cheryl Grady at the University of Toronto recently found it was those adults with the most education who tapped into this premier brain region. Julie Beun Postmedia News

Learn the art of gravy LIVE MUSIC NO COVER ON COOKING

H

Chef Dez

ave you ever had the misfortune of tasting gravy that was bland, watery, or as starchy as dragging your tongue across a pile of raw flour? To say the least, it is not pleasant; and a far cry from serving its purpose: to enhance the food being served. To assist you in avoiding this mishap at your Thanksgiving dinner, let us discuss the basics in perfecting gravy. Gravies are considered sauces made with the pan drippings of either meat or poultry, and thus basics of sauce making are fundamental knowledge. The functions of sauces are to add flavour, moistness, richness and appearance to prepared foods. To achieve this we need three elements of the sauce or gravy: a liquid, a thickener and flavour. For this Thanksgiving example, the focus will be on turkey gravy. The liquid for gravies is simply the juice from the poultry with additional broth and/or wine. The thickener will be a roux (pronounced ‘roo’), a cooked combination of equal weighed amounts of fat and flour. Additional flavours will be created from roasted vegetables, herbs, and seasonings. Always cook turkey on a rack inside the roaster as it prevents the bottom half of the turkey from boiling in its own juices. Below the rack should be a combination of a few bay leaves with rough chopped onion, celery, carrot and garlic. As the turkey cooks, the liquid is needed for basting, however excess juices should be removed (and reserved) to aid in the caramelization of the vegetables. Once cooked, remove the turkey from the roasting pan, drain the liquid and allow the fat and juices to separate. Add a bit of the fat back to the roasting pan along with some flour and cook on a medium-low heat stovetop with the vegetables for a few minutes. This process will cook out the starchy raw flour taste and help in

the final browning of the vegetables. It should be fairly thick and pasty. Slowly deglaze the pan with some white wine or broth. Deglazing is the process of removing the browned bits of flavour from the pan and incorporating them into the sauce. Incorporate the reserved juices (not the fat) and additional broth and/or wine gradually to avoid lumping. While heating through, continue to add enough broth/wine until you have reached the thickness that you want to achieve. Remember, the full thickening power of the roux will not take effect until the gravy reaches a boil. The vegetable pieces and herbs can now be removed by the aid of a wire mesh strainer. Taste and season the gravy with salt and fresh cracked pepper before serving. Additional herbs such as thyme, sage, and oregano can be used but should be in minimum amounts to prevent from overpowering the gravy. Dried herbs should be added during the cooking process of the roux, as they will need re-hydration time to release their flavour. Fresh herbs are more delicate and should

be added with the liquid, once the pan is deglazed, for optimal taste and fragrance.

Dear Chef Dez: I know if my sauce or gravy is too thick I just add more liquid, but what if it is too thin? How do I add more flour without it going lumpy or tasting starchy? Sharon G. Abbotsford, BC Dear Sharon: Mix equal amounts of flour with room temperature butter into a paste, and whisk in small amounts of this paste to your sauce while continuing to cook until the desired consistency is reached. The fat of the butter mixed with the flour will separate the starchy particles from each other and prevent lumping. The continued cooking will eliminate the starchy taste, and the butter will also add extra sheen to your sauce’s appearance. This paste is called a ‘beurre manié’ (pronounced burr mahnyay).

Culture Days brings events to city this week

Burnaby residents are being invited to join in a nationwide celebration of arts and culture. Several local events are planned as part of Culture Days, a Canada-wide celebration of arts and culture that runs from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2. Among the highlights: ◆ Edmonds 2011 Mosaic: The Burnaby Artists Guild is partnering with the Edmonds Community Centre for 55-plus and Opus Art Supplies to host this free event on Friday, Sept. 30. Community members of all ages are invited to take part by painting one of 150 fiveby seven-inch canvases that will be combined to form a four- by eight-foot mural. Materials will be provided, and guild members will be on hand to help out. Anyone interested can drop in to the Edmonds Community Centre, 7282 Kingsway, between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m., or between 4 and 8 p.m. For more information,

call 604-525-5107, email tiernanroxsane3@gmail. com or see www.burnaby artistsguild.com. ◆ Tile mosaic workshop, Cameron Park: The Cameron Centre is hosting a mosaic workshop as part of a community art project, in which participants will help to create a dragonfly mosaic for the centre. All ages are welcome, but children must be accompanied by an adult. Drop in to Cameron Centre at 9523 Cameron St. – in the Juniper Room and the upstairs lobby – between 4 and 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 30. It’s free, and there’s no need to pre-register. ◆ Comic postcards: Vanessa Kelly, an art instructor at the Shadbolt Centre, will be on hand at the Bob Prittie (Metrotown) branch of Burnaby Public Library to lead a session in creating comic postcards. Postcards and all materials are provided. Drop in to the library, 6100 Willingdon Ave., between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

◆ Raku firing demonstrations: Artist Linda Doherty, a Shadbolt Centre technician and instructor, will conduct raku firings using two unique glazing techniques: “horse hair” and “naked” raku. Visitors can see the redhot pots being removed from the kiln at 30-minute intervals, and those who want to take part will have a chance to apply horse hair onto the hot pots. It’s taking place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Steam Plant/ Ombu Kiln site, south of the Burnaby Art Gallery at 6344 Deer Lake Ave. ◆ A Little Lunch Music: The Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, at 6450 Deer Lake Ave., hosts A Little Lunch Music – Latin Moods on Friday, Sept. 30 from noon to 1 p.m. Encores Café has a special buffet from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for $10, or those wishing to enjoy the music only can brown-bag it and enjoy the music for free. The performance features Latin-inspired music

with a classical twist, performed by flutist Samantha Fu and pianist Anna Vavilova. ◆ Art on the Spot – Dance: The Shadbolt Centre offers a free performance in its atrium on Saturday, Oct. 1 at 12:30 p.m., featuring performances by its dance program instructors. The Shadbolt is at 6450 Deer Lake Ave. ◆ Necklace Project: The artist P’tit Dave is looking for help to complete his one-kilometre-long beaded necklace. He supplies the materials, and community members supply the creative juice.

He’ll be in the Shadbolt Centre atrium from noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1. ◆ Creative Connections – A Hands-On Approach to Community Art: Visitors to the new exhibition at the Burnaby Arts Council’s Deer Lake Gallery will be invited to create a collage, poem or drawing to be displayed alongside the work of artist Diane Moran. The exhibit includes community art initiatives dating back as far as 1999 – all various projects that Moran has worked on with community groups, schools and others. Everyone is invited to

visit the gallery, at 6584 Deer Lake Ave., from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1. ◆ Artist Talk: Burnaby Art Gallery hosts an artist talk on Saturday, Oct. 1 with Rhonda Neufeld and Rodney Konopaki, in conjunction with their new Chance Operations2 exhibition. They’ll be on hand at the gallery, 6344 Deer Lake Ave., from 2 to 4 p.m. For a detailed listing of Culture Days events, check out the website at www. culturedays.ca. jmaclellan@ burnabynow.com

In tough: It was a tough week for the Moscrop Panthers football teams. In Wednesday action, the Burnaby team lost 34-0 to Hugh Boyd of Richmond, in black, in junior varsity action. And on Friday afternoon, at Burnaby Lake West, the Panthers dropped a 35-6 decision to Abby Christian in varsity action.

Panthers lose in tough exhibition game Alfie Lau

staff reporter

One week after being the hammer, a Moscrop Panthers were the nail in a 35-6 exhibition loss to Abby Christian at Burnaby Lake West on Friday afternoon. One week after a 38-0 win over the Isfeld Ice, the Panthers were undone by Abby Christian’s explosive Dallas Yassinsky, who had two touchdowns, including a 55yard punt return for a score. Moscrop salvaged some pride with a late touchdown, a one-yard pass from Jesse Johnston to Mohammed Indakem. But the game was all Abbotsford, as

they scored early and often offensively and hammered Johnston all game long defensively. “They’re a tough team, a good, strong AA team,” said Panthers head coach Craig Bymoen. “I wanted to schedule some tough exhibitions for our guys so that they could play better opponents and hopefully get better.” The Tier II Panthers did show some nimble execution, while trailing 23-0, on a second quarter drive where Johnston was able to connect with Marcus Perrin and Indakem on 20-yard receptions and a 10-yard catch by Ahmad Al Ashkar, but the Panthers’ drive stalled on fourth

down and Abby Christian capitalized by scoring two more touchdowns to salt the game away. “We’re a young team,” said Bymoen. “I think we only have seven guys who played football last year, so that means we’re just trying to get better and improve every week.” Indakem was one example of a player who got better as the game went on. After fumbling a kickoff and having Abby Christian convert that turnover into their third touchdown of the game, Indakem showed a lot more urgency on the next Panthers possessions and was rewarded with a touchdown for his efforts.

“Our guys are making massive strides and I keep telling them that those strides only come with experience,” said Bymoen. The experience of getting hurt couldn’t have been comforting for Johnston, who was repeatedly hit while in the pocket. But he kept on getting up and kept firing passes. “Jesse, he was tough today,” said Bymoen. “We’ve asked our kids to step up and keep fighting, and Jesse did that today.” In junior varsity action, the Panthers lost 34-0 to Hugh Boyd of Richmond on Wednesday. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

Soccer Clan looks to snap four-game losing streak Alfie Lau

staff reporter

A road trip through Idaho and Montana proved fruitless for the SFU Clan women’s soccer team as they dropped two matches last week to American opposition. On Saturday, the Clan fell 1-0 to Northwest Nazarene University, their fourth straight loss, on a heartbreaking last minute goal by Julianne Steele. Steele scored in the 89th minute, on a shot from 15 yards out that rippled the right side of the

Clan net. The goal came against the run of play, as the Clan put all kinds of pressure on Northwest Nazarene, outshooting the home side 7-2 in the second half. “Soccer’s not always a fair game and it’s hard to lose a match like this. Our team played a very good game, and things just didn’t go our way today. I feel we outplayed them and we outchanced them, but we just couldn’t find the back of the net. I’m really happy with the work our team is putting in. We’re going to go home, keep working

hard and keep improving,” Clan head coach Shelley Howieson said in a press release. The loss came only days after the Clan were beaten 41 by Montana State University Billings. The home squad opened the scoring when Jaucelyn Richter received a pass through the 18yard box off a throw-in. Richter put the shot into the near post to give her team a 1-0 lead. It was Richter’s fifth goal of the season and was the only tally of the first half.

The Clan tied the game early in the second half when Anna Brancati scored from 15 yards out into the lower left corner of the net. But Montana State responded less than 10 minutes later when Jennifer Larsen scored her first goal of the season, heading a corner kick into the back of the net in the 61st minute. The home side got insurance markers in the 79th and 85th minutes to salt away the win that now moves them to 6-1-1 on the season.

“The elevation here does make this a difficult place to play, and I think it may have contributed a little to our slow start today,” Howieson said in a press release. “Having said that, we have been playing some very good soccer, but small breakdowns have hurt us.” The women hope to get back on the winning track at home when they host the Saint Martin’s Saints at Fox Field this Thursday night at 7 p.m. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

Clan falls to Humboldt State in home loss Alfie Lau

staff reporter

A highlight reel run from Bo Palmer was the only shining moment for the SFU Clan men’s football team Saturday as they dropped a 35-7 decision to the Humboldt State University Lumberjacks at Fox Field. Lumberjacks quarterback Mike Proulx threw three touchdowns, including one on the first drive of the game as the visitors maintained a perfect 3-0 record (2-0 in the Greater Northwest Athletic Conference). SFU falls to 1-3 (0-3 in the GNAC). “I thought we were physical today. They are big in size and have a lot of experience,” Clan head coach Dave Johnson said in a press release. “They are a little more athletic on special teams which played a bit of a role. I think as a team we need to focus on each play. We are not old enough or mature enough to take in the whole picture. Our guys played with spirit and passion. There are some positives there but we have some things to address.” After J.J. Latu returned the opening kickoff 78 yards, Proulx connected with Chris Bolt in the end zone for the touchdown to give the Lumberjacks an early lead. Bolt took another short pass from Proulx into the end zone to start the second quarter to give HSU a 14-0 lead. Running back Lyndon Rowells had a strong game as he earned the first down with a 44-yard rush and then followed that with a 16-yard rush into the end zone to give the visitors a three-touchdown lead. Palmer’s spectacular run brought the Clan to within two touchdowns, as he took a handoff from quarterback Trey Wheeler for a 68-yard touchdown after he found an opening on the left side of the Lumberjacks’ defence. But the Lumberjacks countered quickly, as Proulx launched a pass to Victor Spencer to restore the 21-point lead.

Jason Lang/burnaby now

Diamond in the rough: SFU Clan running back Bo Palmer, with ball, had 148 yards on the ground, including a 68-yard touchdown run, but it wasn’t enough for SFU as they lost 35-7 to Humboldt State at Fox Field on Saturday afternoon.

Proulx added a touchdown for insurance late in the third quarter as he executed a quarterback draw to give the Lumberjacks the final 35-7 margin. Proulx went 25-for-44 with 262 passing

yards and three touchdowns. Wheeler was 9-for-19 with 50 passing yards. Palmer rushed for 148 yards on 23 carries for SFU while Rowells rushed for 136 yards on 27 carries for the Lumberjacks.

SFU will attempt to get their first GNAC win this Saturday on the road when they take on Central Washington in Ellensburg, Washington at 1 p.m. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

SPORTS IN BRIEF

St. Thomas More solidifes claim on top spot Alfie Lau

staff reporter

The St. Thomas More Knights showed the province that they’re worthy of the number 1 high school football ranking. The Knights went on the road to Surrey on Saturday and pounded Holy Cross 55-28. The Knights were led by Elliot Nelson, who rushed for 161 yards and three touchdowns. STM also got two majors each

from quarterback Mikey Carney and receiver Gio Trasolini, while running back Justin Siglos, as part of a 250 all-purpose yardage day, added the final Knights touchdown. “It was a pretty good team effort for us, and we played some good defence,” STM head coach Bernie Kully told Howard Tsumura of The Province. The Knights, who led 37-7 at the half, got a great effort from their defence, with linebackers

Nelson and Kyle Madden each registering 12 tackles. The Knights have a bye this week, then open their Eastern Conference league play by facing No. 3 W.J. Mouat Secondary of Abbotsford. “We have two weeks to get ready,” said Kully. Kully will have a chance to see the W.J. Mouat Hawks play this coming weekend when they face the Vancouver College Fighting Irish.

Ast gets first goal Former Burnaby Winter Club product Anthony Ast took a Giant step Friday night. The 2010 first-round bantam pick of the Vancouver Giants scored the first goal of the Giants season as the hometown squad beat the visiting Victoria Royals 5-2 at the Pacific Coliseum. Ast took a nifty pass from Cain Franson at 18:22 of the first period and beat Braden Gamble

for the only marker of the first period. The Giants would go on to get markers from Marek Tvrdon, Franson, Jordan Martinook and Dalton Sward, while the Royals, who are led by former Burnaby Winter Club star and Buffalo Sabres draft pick Kevin Sundher, got goals from Steven Hodges and Robin Soudek. The Royals played their first game after relocating from Chilliwack earlier this year.

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! Sept. 27/28
