Date set for hit and run trial Cory Sater will appear in court next October Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com A trial date has been set for the man accused of killing two Tri-Cities women in an alleged drunk-driving crash. A four-week trial is scheduled to begin on Oct. 1 for Cory Sater, the man accused in the crime. His lawyer made an appearance in New Westminster Supreme Court Thursday to set the date. Sater is facing 10 charges related to the February 2011 crash that killed Charlene Reaveley and Lorraine Cruz. The charges include two counts each of dangerous driving causing death, impaired driving causing death and causing an accident resulting in death. His trial was set to begin in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court this month, but the date was quashed after he elected to have his case heard in Supreme Court instead. Cruz had been driving with her 28-year-old boyfriend in a Nissan Pathfinder just before 12:30 a.m. on Feb. 19 when the vehicle crashed at Lougheed Highway and Pitt River Road. The two got out of the car, and 30-year-old Reaveley and her husband Dan stopped to help. As the four stood outside the Nissan at the PoCo intersection, a 1995 white Jeep Cherokee allegedly ran down both women. They died instantly.

Coquitlam resident Heather Andrews holds a photo of her late father, James Little, who suffered with Alzheimer’s disease for nearly a decade.

Sharing the story of Alzheimer’s January is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, and events are planned for patients, caregivers John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com It started with the odd slip-up — a forgotten name or the repetition of a conversation that had taken place just minutes before. From there, Heather Andrews watched her father’s condition regress into significant memory loss and frustration. Andrews’ father James Little — who often went by his middle name, Gord — suffered from Alzheimer’s disease for close to a decade before his death two years ago. In light of January being desig-

nated Alzheimer’s Awareness Month throughout Canada, Andrews is sharing her story of life with a loved one who experienced the seemingly random disease. “You need patience and you need empathy,” said Andrews, a 58-yearold Coquitlam resident. “I have seen people become frustrated with people with Alzheimer’s. But they’re not acting that way to piss you off. It’s not something intentional. You have to chill out and get used to it.” A long-standing PoCo resident before his death, Little began to show signs of his condition about nine years ago. Those initial indicators were not uncommon to those suffering from

the disease: increasing instances of forgetfulness, repeating a conversation that had already taken place, and a rise in anxiety and frustration. In fact, one incident sticks out in Andrews’ mind as the tell-tale sign that something was awry. Having just finished watching a movie with her dad, he compared the movie’s plot to one he had previously watched. Minutes later, he recalled that same comparison. “From that point forward, he often repeated himself and would then say, ‘I’ve asked you that before, haven’t I?’” Andrews recalled. “He’d get frustrated quite a bit and we could feel the frustration. But it was frustrating for him

more so than [the rest of the family].” In order to cope with her dad’s memory loss — and to not highlight his forgetfulness in front of him — Andrews developed a system of “dancing around” conversations. If her dad repeated something, she would simply respond by wording things differently, or approaching the conversation in a different manner. “You just have to try and be patient,” she said. “You have to try and dance around it and find different ways to approach it so that they don’t become more frustrated. The more frustrated they become, it makes  CONTINUED ON PAGE 4, see WORKSHOP.

Library patron upset over parking Coquitlam resident says signs are confusing, is refunded cost of ticket she received John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com

D

epending on whom you talk to, there seems to be confusion around how parking is split up between the Henderson Place mall and the new City Centre library. Coquitlam resident Katherine Chan feels as though she was unfairly ticketed for parking on the first floor of the three-level parkade last week. Chan said she parked in an area designated as 30-minute parking only, in order to go to both the library and shop in the mall. She said she was in the mall for less than a half hour, and returned to a ticket worth $61.60. “The signs that are up are confusing,” she said. “How do people know that the left and the right building [are] different?” Chan, however, contested the ticket and was ultimately refunded the full

isn’t alone, as other library patrons have been confused about the parking delineation in the past.

However, library staff have posted more signs recently, and Piprell feels most of those issues have been alleviated. “I think that now, people know where the library parking is,” she said. “However, the Henderson parking is very attractive, especially if all you want to do is nip in and bring your books back to the library.” The three-level parking structure allows for parking for library patrons on the second level only. About 90 stalls are designated for library patrons right above the library itself, on the second floor. According to Henderson Place mall manager Fides Nery, however, Chan’s story is an anomaly. “There have been no issues at all,” she said. “The library has their own parking lot above the library. The library has put all the necessary directional signs going towards the library parking. We haven’t had any problems.”

Moody Centre OCP discussed Police Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com In less than four years, the Evergreen Line will be making its first stops in Port Moody. With rapid transit’s arrival comes the expected change to the City of the Arts. The line is also the impetus for the city to come up with a new OCP, or Official Community Plan, which will guide growth in Port Moody for the next generation. One neighbourhood got a head start on getting the ear of the council that will ultimately approve the final OCP. More than 100 people turned out to the Port Moody Legion Hall last week for an OCP meeting sponsored by the Moody Centre Community Association. It was an opportunity for residents to get information and provide feedback on the draft OCP and ask city council and staff questions. Though the document is still in its early form, the OCP is designed for tripling the population of Moody Centre and allowing for 20-storey buildings on the north side of St. Johns Street.

He also argued Port Moody is a bedroom community with a commuter corridor and must balance the desires of residents with its responsibilities within the region. “You can’t just be blocking off streets or doing random things as if Port Moody is living on an island,” Clay said. “Change is inevitable. Let’s have good change, let’s plan it out and work on it together.” Association president Wendy Swalwell said she wasn’t surprised by anything she heard at the meeting, but was pleased with the turnout. She said she was glad to hear the OCP is still a work in progress, noting some residents already thought it was a done deal. “It’s good for them [residents] to know that it isn’t, and it’s very important for them to come to meetings and put their face in front of council,” Swalwell said. An updated version of the OCP, which will include harder numbers on possible population growth, is expected to be in front of council in March, to be followed by more public consultation. A final draft of the OCP will likely be approved in the summer.

look for victims Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

Coquitlam Mounties are looking for more victims of a former teacher recently convicted of sex crimes. The RCMP are asking any former students of Russell Lance Read to come forward if they believe themselves to be a victim of the teacher. Read, 60, pleaded guilty in December to sexually exploiting two young people. The incidents took place about a decade ago. According to RCMP, Read taught at Citadel Middle School in PoCo. Besides being a computer teacher, he coached rugby and volleyball and taught choir. Recently, Mounties received reports from three alleged victims who were taught by Read between 1996 and 2004. Anyone looking to come forward is asked to call Const. Jenn Croft at 604-552-7394 or Const. Andrea Schadeck at 604-552-7393.

the anxiety that much more fierce.” Those tenets of patience, empathy and acceptance will be at the forefront of a free clinic that will take place Wednesday, Feb. 6 in PoCo. Hosted by representatives from Home Instead Senior Care, the hour-long workshop will teach attendees how to manage behaviours, encourage engagement and care for themselves while caring for their loved one. “The most important thing for a caregiver is that you get enough rest,” said Sharon Scramstad, general manager of the PoCo outlet of Home Instead Senior Care. “Proper nutrition is also key. A lot times when we’re looking after someone else, we’re focusing on their needs instead of our own. We’ll make sure that they eat at the proper time, but then we’re not looking after ourselves.” Scramstad characterized Alzheimer’s as a completely random disease, one that typ-

Thought to be the most common form of dementia, Alzheimer’s is caused by buildups of plaque on the brain that inhibit the nerves within the organ. “Where there used to be nerves running through that can communicate things from one part of the brain to the other, that’s no longer there,” she explained. “That’s why there’s gaps.

Everybody responds differently depending on what area of the brain is affected by these plaques.” At the Feb. 6 workshop, those in attendance will be given tips around how to access support in the community, manage and mitigate difficult behaviours, and help those affected by Alzheimer’s retrieve some semblance of their memory. “The No. 1 thing I can say [to caregivers] is don’t try to

Smoking ban called for John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com The Canadian Cancer Society is calling on the province to make sweeping changes to where people can smoke in B.C., though a number of those proposals are already in place across the Tri-Cities. The society is asking for all patios, parks and playgrounds to be smoke-free. The move coincides with National NonSmoking Week, which runs through tomorrow (Saturday). “This is a public health issue — education alone is not enough,” said Brittney Parks, a health promotion coordinator with the society’s BC and Yukon Division. “We know that by implementing a policy such as this, we can work to reduce smoking rates.” According to Parks, Port Moody stands out as the gold standard for anti-smoking legislation in the Tri-Cities, as bylaws prevent smoking at city parks, sport venues, playgrounds or beaches. “Port Moody has particularly gone over and above in implementing strong restrictions for outdoor smoking,” she said. In Coquitlam, smoking is banned at parks, commercial buildings and workplaces, bus stops and schools, on trails and also on patios where those under 16 are present. PoCo bans smoking in common public places, commercial establishments and bus stops, among other places. Smoking is permitted on a patio, provided the proprietor restricts access to those 19 or

older. Though he doesn’t take a pro-smoking stance, David Whitehurst, an assistant professor of health economics at SFU, said the type of ban the Canadian Cancer Society is calling for would erode any aspect of individual choice. “The purely theoretical

position that one may teach in an economics class would be to leave this to the market,” he said. “What that does is preserve choice and preserve liberty, rather than an outright ban. Because a ban is actually somebody saying, ‘I know what’s best for you, better than you know yourself.’”

The new “Family Law Act” will become law on March 18, 2013. Do you know your rights?

PAT BISCEGLIA LAWYER

Certified Family Law Mediator

On March 18, 2013, the new Family Law Act will be the new Provincial Law that will affect family relations in this Province. The new Family Law Act will replace the Family Relations Act that has been in effect for about 30 years in this Province. The new Family Law Act will introduce major changes to your rights upon a breakdown of a marriage or a common law relationship. Below is a brief example of one of the changes. Under the present law, common law spouses are not entitled to the Division of Property provisions under the Family Relations Act. Under the present law, common law spouses who separate have to rely on non-statutory principles such as constructive trust to advance their property claims. The rights of common law spouses and married spouses were and are different. Common law spouses were and are at a huge disadvantage in advancing a claim for a Division of Property. However, under the new Family Law Act, starting March 18, 2013, changes will be in place to give common law spouses and married spouses the same rights to claim Division of Property (including Pensions). After March 18, 2013, common law spouses who separate will be entitled to claim Division of Property. The requirement is that the common law partners had to be in a relationship for at least 2 years prior to the separation, and the application to divide property has to be brought within 2 years from the date of separation. Look for our future articles where other changes will be discussed. The information is not to be considered legal advice and you should not act upon it. You should consult a Lawyer about your specific situation. To arrange a free initial consultation please call 604.942.5598

TAX RETURNS Basic Returns $60

Just two food carts to be allowed in park Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com When the bands strike up a note at Rocky Point Park this summer, food carts will be there too — albeit in a slightly modified format. Port Moody city council approved a recommendation Tuesday to have staff draft a plan to bring food carts back to the popular park for the Summer Sunday Concert Series. However, council also approved a few changes to the plan from last year that include dropping the number of vendors from four to two. Council also wants a formula devised that would see the vendors contribute financially to the concert series, and take part in a waste-diversion program. The city will also be opening up the park to food carts on Saturdays for larger events like centennial celebrations. Coun. Diana Dilworth suggested the drop in the number of food carts for 2013 is a reaction to concerns expressed by existing vendors. Though a staff report noted both the food carts and exist-

ing vendors were satisfied with the outcome of the pilot project, councillors did hear concerns from established vendors about a possible loss of business. Dilworth called the changes a compromise between the original food cart idea and concerns of existing businesses. “I think it’s fair to say if we have 1,000 or 1,200 people in the park every day, which we often do on the Summer Sunday Concert Series, the existing food providers can’t possibly provide service to all of them,” she told The NOW. Mayor Mike Clay, who brought forward the suggestion to lower the number of carts by half, argued four vendors made it too crowded and congested in the park. The pilot project, originally conceived of by the city’s economic development committee and approved by council last spring, had foodcart vendors in the park on Sundays through Aug. 26, the length of the concert series. As for how the two food carts would be chosen, Dilworth said city staff would likely come up with a plan similar to the request-for-pro-

posal scheme used last year. Meanwhile, when bands come to play at the park, they’ll be doing so on a stage with a new name. The city has approved a 10-year sponsorship deal with Pacific Coast Terminals, which will see the company pay $3,500 annually in exchange for naming the stage the PCT Performance Stage. In a letter to the city, PCT said it envisions the money going toward, for example, youth bands to cover the cost of renting an audio system or community music groups to help pay for renting the stage. The company also contributes $5,000 to the concert series, which it said would not change.

Butt out today and butt out forever

Y

ou know a hundred reasons to quit smoking already, but for National NonSmoking Week, here’s another. Lung cancer migrates. It can spread, into the brain, into the glands and into the bones. If you sign up for lung cancer, you are spinning the roulette wheel of cancer. Will you simply get a painful, wheezing death as the cancer ravages your lungs? Or will you get seizures, loss of vision and violent mood swings as it carves its way through your brain, through your very sense of self? Perhaps, if you are particularly unlucky, it will take root in your bones, giving you one of the most painful experiences known to humankind. There is a more positive reason to quit smoking, too: everyone is on your side. Everyone. Those who’ve never smoked, and those who quit years ago will applaud your decision. The B.C. government will be happy with you, and will even give you free medications to help you quit, through the smoking cessation program. Bars and pubs in B.C. will be happy that you’re not nipping out the door so often for a smoke, letting in that cold air. Ditto your significant other, who will be able to avoid either allowing you to smoke inside, or banishing you to the garage or deck. Your bank account will be particularly pleased, and you will be pleased in turn when you see how much more money is there at the end of a month. It adds up, even if it’s only a couple of packs a week. Your doctor will give you a big grin. Try for a fist-bump; the doc will probably go for it. Chefs everywhere will be happier, because you will be able to better taste their food. A few years from now, you’ll have mostly forgotten why you started smoking in the first place. You don’t wheeze going up a couple flights of stairs any more, you can’t stand the smell of tobacco smoke and much of the spectre of an early death has been lifted from you, and from your loved ones. C’mon, butt out. We’re rooting for you.

At that young age, I didn’t even notice that Barbie’s limbs were sufficiently longer than mine, nor did I try to change my eating habits to achieve the doll’s body — I loved food way too much. My closet looked nothing like hers; the only thing that touched my feet were socks and sneakers and the only dresses I wore were forced upon me by my mother, who seemed to like dress-up even more than I did, though her creations were far from Barbie’s typical outfits. My love of Barbie seemed out of place in my tomboy-like behaviour — I expressed no interest in clothes or makeup; all I wanted was to run wild on the playground, after which I would return home and play quietly in my room, alone with my dolls. I think I was lucky. I had a strong family that taught that body image didn’t matter; therefore, I just didn’t care. The purpose of Barbie dolls for me was simply to create stories with them, an outlet for my imagination. I still have all my Barbies. My four favourites currently reside on the bottom level of my shelf, each of them seated on a purple unicorn. Grace Chen is a Grade 12 student at Dr. Charles Best Secondary.

Your View Mortgaging B.C. one deal at a time NOW POLL I

f the B.C. government is ever on the hunt for a new slogan, perhaps “spending our children’s inheritance” would be fitting. Since 2001, British Columbians have been witness to the sale of key parts of B.C.’s infrastructure, transfers of its wealth to private interests and sweetheart deals for industries that can afford well-connected lobbyists. There’s the scandalous: the sale of BC Rail; the infamous: the run of rivers; and the it would almost be funny if it weren’t true: the incorporation of Jumbo, B.C., a community with a council of three and not a single resident. Sometimes the government gets called out on these deals by one of its own before they’re inked, as they were in November over a proposed tax break for Pacific Western Brewing, a major donor to the BC Liberal party. After some initial hue and cry, cabinet minister Rich Coleman tinkered with it sufficiently to pick up the support of the NDP, who called the politics of the deal “messy,” but the outcome “sound.” But how many voters caught news of Coleman’s $10-million stocking stuffer for B.C.’s horse racing industry? Announced five days before Christmas, it would have been an easy miss.

A little Yuletide cheer from Coleman and the BC Lottery Corp. Yet, for a government on its way to spending $44 billion in 2013, a few million here for microbreweries and a few million there for horse racing is relatively inconsequential in the grand scheme of public finances. Governments have bigger fish to fry. Within days of next month’s provincial budget, B.C.’s auditorDermod general is expected to release his report on the Pacific Carbon Trust, a Crown corporation. Scuttlebutt says it’s not pretty and in all likelihood will be met with a well-orchestrated spontaneous show of criticism from friends of the government. Another area of worry: the increasing use of deferral accounts by the government and its agencies to push the fiscal peanut down the road to another day. In 2011, BC Hydro reported $2.2 billion in deferred expenses, a sum forecast to hit $5 billion by 2017. It’s money that the utility has spent, but for now can choose not to report as though they’ve actually spent it. The auditor-general calls it “creating the illusion of profitability where there is none.” Others

might describe it as hocus pocus accounting, but that doesn’t make the dollars any less real. Some of these sweetheart deals, stocking stuffers and deferrals may be in the province’s long-term interest, but in the near total absence of any meaningful legislative oversight it’s difficult to know. Legislative oversight is fundamental to good government. And with less and less of it, the government Travis does more and more by decree. B.C. isn’t well-served by that. In 2012, the B.C. legislature sat for 47 days. Among its numerous legislative duties: to debate and approve a $44-billion budget. Forty-seven days is simply insufficient to do that and everything else well. The B.C. legislature has committees on paper, but not so much in practice. Regardless of who wakes up in government on May 15, there must be a renewed commitment to the idea that committees can play a crucial role in legislative oversight through rigorous debate on government policy. And with what may only be a 19-day session before the election, it will fall heavily on political pundits to scour next month’s budget for any sign of “fudge it” numbers.

My View

But there should be another litmus test: will it be sufficiently transparent on the true costs of future financial commitments that the government has already made in the name of future governments? Because fiscal policy doesn’t just have an impact on the here and now, it can also have an impact on taxpayers 30 years down the road, as the $53.1-billion in deals BC Hydro has signed with private energy producers prove. It’s why the BC Liberals, the NDP and other parties have a duty to spell out how their campaign promises can be met in the context of B.C.’s overall fiscal reality. B.C. taxpayers are all too familiar with that legendary post-election hokey pokey that political parties have danced at one time or another. It’s the jig known as “public finances are even worse than we had imagined and we’ll have to postpone some of those electoral goodies that we promised you.” After the HST debacle, it’s one dance voters could do without. • Dermod Travis is the executive director of IntegrityBC.

Garden

Try these tips for vegetables “I have for years been unable to grow carrots, beets, parsnips, etc. I’m sure the soil is the problem. What do I need to add to it?” Ken via e-mail There can be many reasons for problems growing vegetables. These include old seed, a shady garden site, greedy roots from trees growing nearby, use of broad-spectrum herbicides in the past or having an acidic soil. Moss forming on soil in the winter is one of the signs of acidity, but without doing a soil test you will have no idea how acidic the soil really is. You need to get a soil test kit from a garden centre. These include instructions on testing procedures. The ideal soil for most vegetables is 6.5 pH. Anything lower than that (5.5 pH and lower) will need applications of lime in fall or spring. The results of a soil test will show you how much lime would be needed. One of the best soil enhancers is compost. If you don’t have your own compost, you can buy city or commercial compost or dig in manure. Sea Soil (a composted mix of fish, seaweed and soil) is also an excellent soil amendment.

It can also be quite uneven because several seeds are contained on the outside of each seed ball. So you have to be prepared to transplant very young beet seedlings from areas where they’ve germinated into gaps in the row where they didn’t germinate at all. Parsnips also germinate very poorly — only about 65 per cent pop up as seedlings,  CONT. ON PAGE 14, see WATCH.

City working with BC Film Commission  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 11.

While Blood won’t make predictions for the type of year it will be in terms of numbers for productions, there are several initiatives the film office is eyeing for 2013. The BC Film Commission has just introduced a pilot-project called BC Partners on Screen: Everyone plays a role. The purpose of the project is to give municipalities some guidelines on how they can best serve the industry. Coquitlam will be submitting an application in 2013. “We will be working closely with the

BC Film Commission to make sure that Coquitlam’s practice in facilitating film is as competitive as possible with our neighbouring cities in the Lower Mainland through the Partners on Screen program,” Blood said. “The film office is constantly looking at possible locations from the requests that we receive from the industry.” Blood also suggested one way to increase filming in Coquitlam is to have private property owners register their property through the BC Film Commission. If you think your property has what it takes to be in the movies, you can register at www. bcfilmcommission.com.

even from fresh seed. Old seed has an even worse record. Regular soil is fine for parsnips, but it needs to be deeply worked and largely stone-free because parsnips have very long roots. They need to be

sown about April. With carrot, beet and parsnip seedlings, slugs can be a major hazard. Later, if any of these roots are mulched and stored in-ground for winter, voles can munch their way through whole rows. Randomly placed groups of

root vegetables stand a better chance of making it through to harvest where voles are active.

One of the best all-around performance cars in the world? Our automobile columnist, David Chao, says yes. The new BMW M5 has a starting price of $101,000.

The new BMW M5 lives up to its predecessors David Chao editorial@thenownews.com

B

MW’s M range is one of the most iconic brands in automotive history. Since its inception, people have never questioned the authenticity that the M badge brings. There are few cars in the world that can match the M5’s extraordinary level of performance, refinement, and pure power. For the past 25 years, the BMW M5 has been making news and winning awards. The hallmark of the M5 has always been understated elegance mixed with amazing performance. It’s a true sports car that doesn’t feel the need to shout about it.

Design

On paper, the new M5 looks tamer than the previous generation. For starters, the magnificent V10 has been replaced by a more fuel efficient V8. To hear “the right sound,” BMW has created a system which pipes the exhaust note through the stereo, which feels like they’re trying to compensate for something. And thanks to additions like the seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox, this new M5 weighs 200 lbs more than the old version. At first glance then, it seems the M5’s rock-and-roll days are over — but that isn’t the case at all. With two fewer cylinders, you would expect the new M5 to be slower than the old one. But it’s not. The new V8 has two turbos and cranks out 560-hp. That’s 60 more than the V10. And it has more torque as well — 119 ft-lbs more to be exact. More firepower in the engine bay is just the first piece of good news. In the old M5, you got a techno overload of 11 gear shift settings. In the new one, it’s a more sensible six: three for full-auto and three for manual. The new model also looks

fantastic too. The head lamps and their smoother shape feature the simplified elegance design philosophy seen across the entire BMW range. But there are still cues that amazing power is concealed underneath the body, like flared front vents and the gills on the fenders; the new M5 appears ready to make history again.

Performance

Unlike a few manufacturers who have opted to switch to electric steering units, BMW instead stuck with their trusted hydraulic version. This car continues to give a lot of feedback and gives drivers a high level of confidence. It’s also more economical too. It has a bigger fuel tank so it can go longer in a single tank, and under controlled driving it will return 11.1L/100km combined. And then there’s the ride, which is compliant, but controlled and consistent.

Features

The M5 has a starting price of $101,500 and offers the amount of standard equipment that BMW customers have come to expect. Standard equipment includes: automatic four-zone climate control, navigation, keyless entry, voice recognition, Bluetooth, rear-view camera, start/stop functionality, and a kinetic energy regeneration system. Additional features available as options include: active blind spot recognition, heads-up display, and lane departure warning. Also, North American customers are the only ones in the world who have the option of a six-speed manual transmission. Models equipped with the seven-speed automatic could experience fuel efficiency numbers of 13.2L/100km in the city, 8.6L/100km on the highway for 11.1L/100km combined. Manual models could see 14.4L/100km in the city, 9.2L/100km on the highway for 12.1L/100km.

Environment

The interior is first-class as you would expect from a BMW and the cabin is not flashy but it is incredibly well made. The sporty front seats provide sufficient lateral support but are supremely comfortable thanks in no small part to their well designed shape and contour that “wrap” your body. Being a range topping model, every option in the 5-Series catalogue is available to M5 owners. For example, the Executive package includes features such as soft-close automatic doors, a power trunk and a power rear sunshade. That brings us to the biggest downfall of this new M5, and it’s through no fault of its own. In the past, the M5 was worth it because it was so much better than a regular 5-Series. But today, the normal 5-Series (especially the most expensive version) is so good, it might be difficult to justify spending the extra for the M5.

Thumbs Up

The new M5 is more powerful, quicker and has more grip than the out-going model. It’s also perfectly comfortable and subtle for everyday use. The more refined M5 will appeal to more people if they can afford it.

Thumbs Down

Change is hard for some people and there are those who will mourn the loss of the naturally aspirated V10. Others will claim that this civilized M5 has lost some of its character.

The Bottom Line

The new M5 is not only better than the old one — as an allaround performance car, it’s one of the best in the world.

Know your anti-theft options Automobile theft is no laughing matter. It leaves people without a means of transportation, costs the public more money in insurance payments and taxes and can give anyone the feeling of being personally violated.

The FBI estimates that around one million motor vehicles are stolen in the U.S. each year. The Insurance Bureau of Canada says that a car is stolen every three and a half minutes in Canada, an estimate that translates to approximately 420 cars per

day. Auto theft costs everyone millions of dollars — and can even cost some their lives. According to the Insurance Information Institute, the chances of a car being stolen are now significantly less than they were in 1989. That could  CONT. ON PAGE 18, see A CAR.

TOM: Well, I don’t think it’s ethically confusing, Khai. It’s unethical. And not very nice. RAY: Most shops fold the cost of diagnosis into their posted repair rates. So if you’re paying $75 an hour for repair work, that covers the time spent figuring out what’s wrong with the car. TOM: Which means that if you simply go in and ask for an estimate (which requires a diagnosis) with little or no intention of having the repair done by that shop, you are taking advantage of them and asking them to work for free. And in my experience, most people don’t like to work for free. Especially when they’re not told that they’re working for free. RAY: Some people, like my brother, don’t like to work at all, under any circumstances. TOM: You’re hardly alone in doing this, Khai. We have people ask us to look at their car, then make some excuse about not having time or not having the money right now (which is sometimes true). Then they shop the job around to see if someone else will do it cheaper. RAY: We also have people who call the shop to ask for an estimate on a specific job (so specific that we know they’re reading it off of someone else’s estimate). And since they’ve asked us for a price, we have to call to get parts prices and figure out how much labour will be involved, which is time-consuming. TOM: So this kind of thing is done, Khai. But that doesn’t make it nice. The ethical thing to do is to be honest with the shop, and then pay

Dreamstime

Honesty works both ways — especially with mechanics.

MAIL IN, OR DROP OFF.

Dear Tom and Ray: Although I like to do my own repairs whenever I can, I don’t know enough about cars to make a reliable diagnosis. Is it ethical for me to use commercial shop mechanics to make the diagnosis and then use that information to do the repair myself? Am I hurting their livelihood by giving them the implied promise of a potential repair job to get a thorough diagnosis, while knowing full well that I will not give them the business? — Ethically confused, Khai

MOTORING

TRI-CITIES AUTOMOTIVE

GUIDE

A car alarm alone may not be the best defence against auto theft be due to vehicle theft prevention systems that now come standard on many new cars. While not all vehicle thefts and break-ins can be prevented, there are many devices individuals can employ to help reduce the risk. • Immobilizing devices: There are several types of immobilizing devices available. An immobilizing system works by preventing thieves from bypassing your ignition switch and hot-wiring your car. An immobilization device can involve a kill switch that needs to be turned on before the car will start and can be cleverly hidden. Most cars also come with specially encoded smart keys that are required to start the car. The key is unique to the make, model and VIN number of the car. • Car alarms: Car alarms work as a deterrent to theft, but they do not always prevent theft. Many people have become desensitized to car alarms because of the frequency of “false alarms” from car owners setting the alarms off themselves. Therefore, they may no longer be as effective as they once were. In addition, many thieves can disarm an alarm in a matter of seconds. • Hood and tire locks: Locks that are installed on different parts of the car or truck can also deter thieves. A hood lock stops a potential thief from getting under the hood and gaining access to the engine and wiring. Tire locks are special devices that require a unique tool to remove the tire. This can help prevent tire theft and may give thieves pause as to what other devices are on the car. • Tracking devices: There are devices, like Lojack, that are designed to pinpoint the position of a car. It uses FM radio frequencies to help police recover the car. Some people also purchase aftermarket GPS devices that will show their vehicle’s location on a computer or smartphone. • OnStar: This system was originally designed to be a crash-notification system, but it now offers other helpful services. Individuals can use OnStar for directions, to unlock their vehicles and now to slow down their cars and trucks if they have been stolen. OnStar comes preinstalled on many General Motors cars. There are other steps to take to prevent vehicle thefts and break-ins: • Whenever possible, park in well-illuminated areas. • Never leave your car unlocked. • Keep valuables, including money, out of site in your car. • Be mindful of where you keep your car keys. • When parking in unfamil-

iar neighbourhoods, park in public pay-lots that have

security present. • Give valet parkers your

valet key, so they won’t have access to a trunk or glove

compartment. • Know your car alarm

Local eateries join Dine Out Tourism Vancouver’s annual Dine Out Vancouver Festival, which runs through Feb. 3, features three Tri-Cities restaurants: the Boathouse Restaurant in Port Moody, the Keg Steakhouse and Bar in Coquitlam and the Copper Club Restaurant and Lounge in Coquitlam. The 17-day festival features three-course, fixed-price dinners at 240 restaurants, as well as special hotel room rates and packages and food-themed events and seminars. It’s designed to entice both locals and tourists to try new eateries during what is typically a slow time for “Vancouver is a foodie the industry: the post-holiday season. city at heart, and at “Restaurant reservations are no time of year is this filling up fast, many events more evident than are already sold out and hotel room bookings are strong,” during Dine Out Tourism Vancouver’s Lucas season.” Pavan said in a press release. “Vancouver is a foodie city at Lucas Pavan heart, and at no time of year is Tourism Vancouver this more apparent than during Dine Out season.” Now in its 11th year, Canada’s largest restaurant festival allows diners to sample menus from hundreds of restaurants around the city, all for a prix fixe cost (price points are $18, $28 and $38 per person) and many with suggested BC VQA wine or Granville Island Brewing beer pairings (available at an additional cost).

Full-bodied and bold, this wine would pair well with a hearty beef stew or a roasted lamb dish, and is well-priced at $14.50. Santa Rita 120, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chile: This cabernet shows some quality as it reveals a ripe earthiness, clove and vanilla taste. Fruit is abundant in the form of blackberry and dark cherry. I detect a hint of licorice on the finish. This wine is another value at $13.50. Releases of wines are planned for the spring so look

for new labels at your local wine store. Don’t be afraid to find your own value wines; many of the wines coming to market need to be competitive in taste and price so the chances of a dud are low. If you discover a value wine that you really like, consider buying a case as many of the best value wines sell out quickly. • John Gerum is a wine instructor, writer and consultant with West Coast Wine Education.

CONTROL WEIGHT ARTHRITIS Pain free in 2 weeks! = CONTROL BLOOD SUGAR

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products, physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the American food industry. No sharks are #1 caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let activists confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples:! Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON !My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA!I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON!Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.!For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC!Others write: Can walk again for hours…Climb stairs without hanging on to railing…First time in 15 years can sleep at night…Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister. Bell relays 100% truthful user’s free speech. No need to make claims. No money is paid for it. No questions asked guarantee.

Heartburn Reflux By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 90% acidic food (meat, pasta, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food). If you cannot change your diet to USDA’s 50% or closer to 80% alkaline food, consider to supplement with a natural health product that helps to increase your pH alkaline level close to a healthy #7. Ask for Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects and may eliminate the need for anti-acid pills many people take. As a bonus, an alkaline balanced body prevents many illnesses. See guarantee printed on box. ! Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC ! Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief and having no side effects. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA #39 ! Very happy with acid reflux relief. Last 4 years had increasing reflux despite taking antiacid products. I am also trying to eat more alkaline food. Grzegorz Smirnow, 43, Mt. Prospect, IL ***All Bell Lifestyles products can be returned for a full refund if you are not satisfied. On the Bell Website we list phone numbers or email addresses of actual users of Bell products

Bell uses the power of nature to help put life back into your lifestyle

By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

Long term weight control without controlling blood sugar is destined to fail. This is why we have an epidemic of obesity. How it works: Stops the “roller coaster” of cravings and appetite to eat foods like sugar and starches that cause high blood glucose levels, which then brings on your pancreas to automatically pump insulin into your blood stream. Subsequently the high level of insulin precipitates low levels of blood glucose and cravings for more sugar and starchy carbohydrates (breads, noodles, crackers, cereals, french fries) which you don’t need and therefore it goes into unwanted fat storage and being overweight. Experts now recognize these basic facts.#40 Bell Blood Sugar Imbalance helps to stop this vicious cycle and puts you in control. Dr. Hammond says this natural product works 10 times better because it reprograms our brain and pancreas to release insulin in a controlled manner. Helpful non-fattening eating suggestions in the box. Fibers and exercise like walking are beneficial and help after you control the underlying basic blood sugar imbalance. ! Working in a health #40 food store I heard people saying how well #40 works. I tried it myself. Finally a product that controls my blood sugar much better than what anything else we had in the store. Thank you for helping people around the world. Irene M. Urdialez, 43, Brynton Beach, FL ! My medical indicated pre-diabetic. I took #40. When re-tested readings were fine. This helped my metabolism and my weight is down 25 lbs. I am grateful to the health food store people for their advice. Michael O’Brien, 60, Rutherglen, ON ! I finally found the right approach to lose weight. I tried for 3 years to lose weight. After starting #40 my blood sugar is stable now. I was able to stop overeating and lost my excess weight. Sara John, 40, Kitchener, ON ! I was struggling for 15 years with weight gain in spite of diet and exercise. I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I will forever be grateful to the store manager that explained to me to take #40 and read suggestions to avoid fattening foods. I lost 70 lbs. My fasting blood sugar is now 92. My 2 hour post meal glucose level is now 92 as well. My new shape raised my self-esteem and gave me immeasurable peace of mind. Karen Maples, 55, Clarksville, TN !Diabetic eliminated high blood sugar levels with #40. My readings were 140 to 200 and are now 99 to 122 range where I want it to be. Before I bought about 10 different supplement that were more expensive and didn’t work as well. I also lost some weight. A great improvement in my health and daily living.

n their finest moment, Coquitlam novice dance team Brianna Delmaestro and Graeme Gordon’s performance spotlighted their synchronized movements and precision. Considering how one of the two had spent nearly seven weeks in the dark and avoiding movement due to a concussion, the turnaround was amazing. The pair captured second place at last week’s Canadian Tire national figure skating championship, unleashing a near-perfect performance that didn’t seem plausible just two months earlier. “I think we did really well for the first nationals together,” remarked Delmaestro, 17. “We got Level 4 for our spins and that has been a big struggle for us entering the [nationals]. “Everything just seemed to come together.” They posted a score of 88.48, just six points back of B.C.’s Danielle Wu and Spencer Soo. Like a large puzzle, the idea of meeting such a rigorous program, never mind the second-best marks in Canada, was a distant dream last autumn. A concussion suffered in a noncompetitive event kept Delmaestro sidelined for six weeks.

Stars stall in defence of title REGISTRATION

It’s difficult to prevail when your opponent attacks from outside and inside. The Archbishop Carney Stars senior boys basketball team made a valiant effort at defending it’s B.C. boys Catholic hoop title before getting bounced in the semifinals 55-39 by Holy Cross on Friday. Reeling from a tough matchup, and a virus that had zapped a handful of starters’ strength, Carney struggled in the third-place contest and were vanquished 72-39 by Vancouver College. With two starters out of the lineup and three others flagging, the result wasn’t a complete mishap. “They boys put a lot of pressure on themselves as the defending champions, but we had the norovirus running through our roster by Saturday, so it was tough to put our best foot forward,” noted Carney coach Steve McGinley. “We left the tournament and identified some weaknesses and strengths in preparation for our next goal — league play and the Fraser Valleys.” They opened the tourney with a polished 45-27 triumph over Single-A No. 1 Immaculata, where six-foot-seven forward Patrick Simon squared off against six-foot-11 Alex Hart and came out on the winning end.

Schmidt nets scholarship

Hitting the books and hitting the ice paid off for a handful of local hockey players. Coquitlam players Josh Cardella, Antonio Farina, Ryan Leggett, Port Coquitlam’s Justin Friend, Brandon Painter and Riley Schmidt and Port Moody’s Matt Sippola all shared in the win last week when their Fraser Valley Oilers topped the Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey’s Midget Scholarship tournament, beating the Flames 2-1.

In round robin action, Leggett tallying twice in the Oilers’ 53 win over the Avalanche to skate off with the MVP award. They blasted the Canucks 5-1, with Schmidt collected MVP honours with two goals and an assist. Earlier, they bested the Flames 5-3 behind Painter’s 36-save performance, with the Coquitlam minor product pulling MVP honours. At the end of the tournament, Schmidt was chosen to receive the $500 scholarship from PCAHA for his dedication on and off the ice. The tourney drew players from across the PCAHA, all having met the minimum requirement of a 2.5 grade point average and passing a selection process, and who have not received any major penalties during the current season

Find the Key to your New Home

Aries March 21 - April 19: Your popularity grows. You’ll make solid advances socially, could make new friends, might be attracted to a potential mate (who probably comes from the friendship area). Romantic feelings (and creative surges, speculative urges) visit you Sunday. Exciting meetings occur late Wednesday night through Friday – these days also hold a possible or eventual upheaval, which could force you to choose between love and prestige, mating and career. (If someone new attracts you late Thursday night or daytime Friday, the upheaval is in your past, and this potential relationship is free of it.) Taurus April 20-May 20: Your world has shifted, from contemplation to action, from understanding to ambition. Pursue ambitions now into late February. (Then, the return of an old friend or social group will tell you the hard work’s over.) Until Wednesday p.m., a dilemma might force you to choose between a business or love partner and an ambitious goal. Rest, nurture your family Sunday, early Monday. Your romantic, pleasure-seeking, creative and speculative side blossoms Monday afternoon to Wednesday – you might be a bit confused Monday eve. Tackle chores (and angle for promotion) Thursday/Friday. Gemini May 21-June 20: You feel mentally alert. The few weeks ahead are a splendid time to travel afar, write, engage in intellectual activities (school, lawsuits, etc.) and fall in love – or move a present love to a nuptial stage. Sunday/Monday are busy with errands, calls, reports, details and variety – step lively, but carefully in relationship communications. (Unintended slights can occur.) Veer toward home and family, nature and rest Monday afternoon to Wednesday. All goes well, but health or chores nix a love or intellectual pursuit. Romance hits powerfully Thursday/Friday – if before 6 p.m. (PST) Wednesday, a future upheaval might shorten love’s life span; if you meet after this, or Friday daytime, love’s future looks long and bright.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The weeks ahead hold secrets and subconscious urges.Your intuition rises to the surface; your impressions are correct, especially about a Virgo or Gemini. Research, detective work can advance your standing with higher-ups. You might feel inexplicably drawn to someone in a lustful way. If you’re both single, and merge, you’ll have a very ambitious future, you’ll be a “power couple.” That doesn’t mean a loving couple, though. Sunday/ Monday are for earnings and spending: proceed carefully. Errands, trips, calls and news media fill midweek. Be home Thursday/Friday: much success! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The accent remains on relationships, opportunities, new horizons – and on opposition and obstruction. The difference is largely up to you – smiles win, challenges don’t. Your energy and charisma stand out for all to see Sunday/Monday, but nothing gets done without humble co-operation. Chase money, add to your possessions Monday (unreliable) Tuesday (good, except for used items) and Wednesday (lemons, except 3 – 6 pm PST). Short trips, errands, paper work, and communications fill Thursday/Friday. All’s well – but avoid drawn out talks with co-workers. Saturday: home, family. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A few weeks of hard work face you. A thread of romance survives just long enough to confront you with the question (Friday onward): do you want to marry this person or not? Lust and money are involved. Rest, lie low Sunday to Monday afternoon: be self-protective, ignore possible eggers-on. Your charisma and energy return Monday eve to Wednesday eve. Use this interval to solve problems and tackle formerly daunting chores. Good and bad luck mingle, so stay alert, respond to hunches. Take care with money, purchases, Thursday – but charge forth with these Friday before supper.

Jan. 27 - Feb. 2, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Romance, creative surges, pleasure forays, speculative ventures, games, risk and beauty – these fill the weeks ahead. You could fall in love – and it could lead to marriage. Respond to any romantic openings, glances, or notions now to Feb. 1. Your courage is an essential ingredient. (After Feb. 1, we return to “ordinary romance” – though the “wedding likelihood” remains high through June.) You feel optimistic, hopeful and popular Sunday/Monday. Retreat, rest and plan midweek. Your charisma and energy soar Thursday/Friday: you’ll walk the winning path! Shop, Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Be ambitious – but very diplomatic – Sunday/Monday. Your hopes rise Monday afternoon into Wednesday eve: light romance, popularity, social delights and entertainment arrive, though they might be slightly clouded by your own (newly since last autumn) serious demeanour. Retreat Thursday/Friday: plan, contemplate, be charitable. Interface with government or head office Friday, not Thursday. Your energy and pizzazz rise Saturday. All week, your home and family grab your attention – be gentle, affectionate. Pay attention to real estate, security, retirement plans and nutrition. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The emphasis lies on communications, trips, visits, errands, paperwork, casual acquaintances and variety. (Chase that last one, for your curiosity, now to mid-February, might lead you to a place where you will later live – or more likely, curiosity will uncover something which helps your finances later.) A talk or trip can also lead to romance. Understanding and a mellow mood flow over you Sunday/Monday – gentle love is in the air, but others might be touchy. Be ambitious Monday eve to Wednesday eve. Plan what you’ll say to a higher-up or VIP. Hope, joy Thursday/Friday!

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Chase money, add to possessions. The earnings area of your life is on a slow but unobstructed pathway to increase over the decade ahead (though things get interesting 2018 onward). Respond in kind: march ahead to make money. This is different than career: your “prestige side” wrestles with many unpredictable upsets and opportunities in the years ahead (as Thursday/Friday show). But it, too, is upside-prone. Don’t risk money Sunday/Monday. “Hot sex” might be interlaced with anger. Mellow understanding flows Monday eve to Wednesday eve. Choose: money or friends. Joy, Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your energy, magnetism, effectiveness and sense of timing remain high. Start significant projects, seek favours, see and be seen – impress people. Sunday/Monday might bring a relationship or opposition: step lightly. The “under world” of sex, finances, secrets, medical research and lifestyle changes drifts to the surface Monday eve to Wednesday. Right now, these succeed on a small basis, but not in the large picture. Bosses are skeptical. Careerwise, you need to show unwavering “dutifulness” to September 2015. Gentle love, understanding and travel Thursday/Friday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Rest, recuperate, think and plan. Enjoy solitude. You’ve just entered a powerful, 15-year cycle that will emphasize/promote your ideas, needs and goals as never before.This demands thought and choice. Tackle routine chores Sunday/Monday. Don’t argue with anyone, nor push a machine to its limits. Relationships surge Monday eve to Wednesday eve. Though the general atmosphere won’t bring you anyone with whom you can share mental and emotional “oneness” – still, affection wins. Grab a late Wednesday opportunity. Life’s mysteries arise Thursday/Friday. Gentle love Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
