Col. Canuck having the ride of his life Stanley Cup ﬁnals revving up locals

Canuck spirit: Crazy Canuck Andrew Nicolson gets a lift from Colonel Canuck (Glenn Renney) in their efforts to get residents excited about the Vancouver Canucks bid to win the Stanley Cup.
Canuck Fever is reaching a feverish pitch in the Royal City as the Vancouver Canucks take on the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup finals. While flags have been waving from cars and pubs have been filled with hockey fans for weeks, two New Westminster residents have stood out in the crowd. One of those is Colonel Canuck (aka New Westminster resident/realtor Glenn Renney), who has been spotted from New Westminster to Vancouver in his Canuck-coloured jeep. Having bought the Jeep in Penticton at last year’s Elvis Festival, he woke up one morning this spring and thought about painting it in Canuck colours. “I got a couple cans of spray paint and went wild,” he said. “I did some pin striping. It came out quite nicely.” Back in 1994, Renney sponsored a Matador that traveled the country supporting the Canucks during their run to the Stanley Cup. “The best part about doing ◗Canuck Page 3
Hume Park school may get another reprieve
Superintendent says school should be given three years to try and build enrolment BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER email@example.com
New Westminster school trustees won’t be voting on the future of Hume Park Elementary until June 7, but if they follow
the recommendations of superintendent John Woudzia, the small Sapperton area school looks like it will be safe for another year. Woudzia submitted a recommendation at the end of Tuesday night’s regular school board meeting that has four components to it. Woudzia said he believes the district should provide the Hume Park school community the opportunity to develop a
plan to increase enrolment that is educationally and fiscally sound; that a report on this process be presented to the board by March 31, 2012; that if the plan is approved, the school be given three years, starting with the 2012/13 school year, to implement the plan; and that if the plan is approved and implemented, the board will evaluate the implementation of the plan before the end of the 2014/15 school year.

Woudzia told The Record on Wednesday afternoon that while he still is putting together his final report – to be presented to trustees prior to the June 7 meeting – the rationale behind releasing his recommendations a week early was to give the public a chance to see his recommendations and provide informed comment at the June 7 meeting.

this whole thing is the smiles from people,” he said “They turn and smile, wave and cheer.” On game nights, Renney often drives downtown, gets the crowd outside Rogers Arena revved up, and returns home to Colonel’s Corner to watch the game at home with some of his West End neighbours. Renney would love to see the Canucks win the series in four, but suspects it will take six games before they hoist Lord Stanley’s Cup. “This is definitely the year – one million per cent,” he said. “We owe Boston. They owe us for giving them Cam Neely. We gave them Milan Lucic.” Renney remembers attending his first hockey game in Grade 2, when the Canucks played the New York Rangers. The longtime Canuck fan, Col. Canuck, has a tattoo of Johnny Canuck and assorted hockey symbols on his calf – and is hoping to soon add the piece de resistance, the Stanley Cup. Andrew Nicholson is another New Westminster resident who’s hard to miss in his Crazy Canuck “I am just going getup. “My first game was with my to go nuts.

During this year’s Stanley Cup run, Nicholson New West Canucks fan cruises the uptown getting people excited for the game and then hits one (or two) of the local watering holes to see the on-ice action. “I have always been a die-hard fan,” he said. “My main goal is to get people pumped. I enjoy the attention, obviously.” Nicholson dressed up as a super fan during the Canucks 1994 playoff run but has upped the ante this year. Face paint and coloured wigs are now part of the Crazy Canuck getup. “I thought I’d go out on a limb this year,” he said. “People enjoy it.” Leaving his Royal City residence, Nicholson has a pre-game circuit that includes stops at Moonrakers Pub, Safeway, London Drugs, Starbucks, Save-on Foods and Rivers Reach pub. “Whether we win or lose I do it all over again. I do my rounds,” he said. “I have a whistle I blow. I have a hockey stick.” Nicholson predicts the Canucks will win their first two home games, split games three and four in Boston and win the Cup in Game 5 in Vancouver. “I am just going to go nuts,” he said. “I am going to freak out. I am probably going to start bawling my eyes out.” Nicholson has no objections to last-minute additions to the Vancouver Canuck bandwagon. “Like they say, We are All Canucks,” he said. “Vancouver is doing it. If anyone wants to get into it, enjoy it.” The students in Stephanie Musgrove’s kindergarten class at Lord Kelvin Elementary School are among those who have been avidly following the Canuck’s season. Musgrove is one of the teachers who have supported the Fin’s Friends program for about five years, a program for primary students that teaches them about friendship and social responsibility. While the students have been talking about Fin since

focused on training and playing their games,” Musgrove said. “Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was some way we could see the Stanley Cup?” After the Canucks won their first-round series, Musgrove told her students that she’d take them on a field trip to Rogers Arena to see the Stanley Cup – not realizing it’s based in Ontario and wouldn’t be in Vancouver. “All we need them to see them is one class of five-yearolds would really like to see it,” she said. “Think of these kindergarten kids. The cup is bigger than them!” Musgrove said one of the boys in her class had limited English at the start of the school year, but was still able to name most of the top players in the NHL. Throughout the playoffs they’ve been bringing in newspaper clippings about the games and posting them on the wall. “It encourages them to be looking at other types of media,” she said. “It’s been amazing what kind of news they have been bringing in.”

Cops, city targeting bad behaviour in parks BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
New Westminster police and the city’s bylaw officers say they will be targeting criminal and nuisance behaviour and stepping up enforcement in the Royal City’s parks for the summer. Incidents like public intoxication and trespassing, which includes being in any city park after dusk, tend to increase each year when the weather warms up, according to a press release from Const. Bruce Carrie. Carrie said the purpose of the enforcement is to “ensure that our parks are a safe and enjoyable place for each and every person. Criminal and nuisance behaviour will not be tolerated.” Carrie said police and the city’s parks, culture and recreation staff will be operating on a zero tolerance policy. Those caught violating the rules under the city’s parks bylaw will face an imme-
diate 90-day ban on entering any parks or city recreation facilities under the zero tolerance policy. The ban will be in addition to any other fines or criminal charges warranted. “Those found committing criminal offences will be arrested. Those that commit violations under our city bylaws will be escorted from the park and issued a violation ticket,” the press release states. Carrie said liquor-related offences including possessing liquor, underage drinking or public intoxication will all be subject to $230 fines and parents of minors caught drinking will be notified and responsible for paying any fines. The New Westminster police’s school liaison officer will be informing high school students about the project. Carrie said in addition to regular and bike patrols by police and patrols by city staff, the Citizens Crime Watch Patrol volunteers will also be helping in the project. www.twitter.com/BrentRichter

Hume: Small school’s future uncertain ◗ continued from page 1
Trustee Brent Atkinson said that while he has some questions as to why Woudzia released his recommendations Tuesday, he is still looking for more information on how the school would be configured and what staffing levels would need to be at Hume Park in September. Trustee Jim Goring said it would not be appropriate to offer any comments prior to receiving Woudzia’s final report. The Hume Park issue came back to the forefront
in April when Atkinson moved a motion to look at what options there would be for a school with a September enrolment of 23 to 26 students. That led to the district undergoing a 45-day consultation process into the future of the school that concluded at the end of May. Woudzia put out a 20page report where he outlined different scenarios for what programs or classes could be housed at Hume Park. Those options included keeping the status quo,
consolidating Hume Park with Richard McBride, or having the home learners’ program, alternate program, early French immersion or Montessori classes at Hume Park. “Hume Park is a very valuable resource for the school district,” Woudzia told The Record last month. “We’re looking at ways to optimize the value of that asset.” Trustees meet on Tuesday, June 7 at 7 p.m. in the New Westminster Secondary School library. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

IN MY OPINION
Working with neighbours is key
Harvest Power, which now owns and operates Urban Wood Waste Recyclers in New Westminster, fully supports the plan proposed by the City of New Westminster to address local concerns and questions about our operations. We are committed to forming good relationships within the community and are confident that by working together with the city, Metro Vancouver and local residents, all issues will be addressed. When Harvest purchased the wood waste recycling operation in late 2010, we recognized the company’s great potential but also knew that work needed to be done to realize its full potential. We are on the path of continuous improvement: on our site, with our employees and neighbours, within the community and together with the region as a whole.
On that path, we know how critical it is to work closely with, and have the support of, our neighbours in the city. We have already reached out to neighbors, residents, businesses and city officials and will continue to do so. To enhance those efforts even further, we are proposing the formation of a Sapperton/Harvest Neighbourhood Committee to ensure everyone has the opportunity to stay informed and involved. It would provide residents with a regular forum for staying up to date on our operations and how we are progressing on the plan. We remain very excited and optimistic about the prospects for our operations in New Westminster. The work done here and at our other operations plays an integral role in achieving the sustainability goals of the entire region. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Mike Fournier, regional vice-president, Harvest Power

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Hospitals need help
I was recently in the Royal Columbian Hospital; I spent two days in the emergency room. I was released, but I had to return and spent three days in a hallway eventually moving to a room. I might not have had to stay for 10 days, but I contracted the hospital intestinal bug. I was well taken care of, and I have nothing but praise for the staff. The place seemed well kept with pictures, plants and decent chairs. I’m sure that these are the things that keep patients, visitors and staff in good cheer. Unless things have changed since September last year, when my boyfriend was in the Richmond Hospital, it was depressing. In one room he was in, the plaster was coming off the wall, the curtains were missing hooks, and there was a strange mixture of chairs that looked like they had been brought from the recycling station. Also, paint was wearing off the cupboards and the bathroom was just a toilet cubbyhole; I’m sure contributing to the abruptness of the staff. Finally he was sent to palliative care. The area was nice, but he was shoved in a corner of a room meant for two and already occupied. He had absolutely no privacy, with very little room for a visitor. Now I read that St Paul’s Hospital is falling apart.
country’s broadcast media. Instead of commercials, they run public service announcements that look like they were shot in the ‘80s. Havana used to have countless newspapers before the revolution, but numbers dwindled to a handful, all state run, of course. The most popular is the Granma, which I heard sells out quickly because Cubans use it for toilet paper, an often scarce commodity. So if you have a problem with the government, raising criticism in the media is impossible. In fact, raising criticism, period, is impossible unless you want to go to prison.

Faking sincerity on HST Dear Editor:
As Premier Christy Clark continues to throw millions of our dollars at the awful chance that real grassroots democracy might triumph over her desperate efforts to make us swallow the HST, we see and hear a number of business folk telling us that the HST is good for us. There is also a hastily cobbled-together organization of 30 axe-grinding business groups called the Smart Tax Alliance telling us that (surprise!) the HST is good for us. This is one of the oldest political wheezes of them all – gaggles of folksy citizens popping up to support the government’s pet commandment. Does the ploy really work? If so, can we expect the sudden appearance of more groups gifted with some special intelligence that tells them, politically, on which side their bread is buttered? How about Grey-Haired Mothers for the HST and Why Don’t You Phone Home More Often? Surely that would score on the side of goodness and honesty. It has been said, after all, that once you learn to fake sincerity you have it made. Tony Eberts, New Westminster

CITY CONDOS SELL OUT IN ONE DAY
‘We ended up with 152 sales in 152 minutes’
BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
New Westminster’s latest condo development sold out completely in a matter of hours on Saturday. Developers for Eight West, the 152-unit, fourstorey mixed-used development at the old Canadian Tire site on Eighth Avenue, say the demand for the oneand two-bedroom units was even greater than expected. “It was off the charts. We ended up with 152 sales in 152 minutes. Absolutely amazing. We ended up with 200 backup offers on top of the 152 sales,” said Bill Morrison, president of Pilothouse Real Estate Marketing. “The response is unprecedented in this market – just overwhelming.” Developers marketed the project by advertising it as an HST-free development, meaning the price of the units were set at market levels and then reduced by the cost of the HST. It was a bet on the part of the developer, Morrison said, that the HST will be defeated in the upcoming referendum. “In actual fact, the developer is hoping the HST will be reduced or eliminated. They’ve set money aside from their own pocket for this but they didn’t say, ‘here’s our purchase price’ and then increase it by the HST,” he said. The total discount would have been about 5.2 per cent after rebates, Morrison said. But Morrison isn’t sure if the HST discount was what drove buyers to the condo. “At the very start, that was a very huge component of our process and it really attracted a lot of press, and that really attracted a lot of people,” he said. “A funny thing happened about a month ago – it stopped being an issue altogether. I don’t know if the buyer mentality changed completely or if people fell in love with the product and location.” More likely, Morrison said, the success is a result of spending a year doing research into what types of
amenities the market was looking for. Morrison said a large number of the condos were purchased by New Westminster locals who wanted the homes for their children. “There’s a lot people in there that have 18- to 22year-olds who are just coming out of school and they want to put their kids into these homes. Almost a third of our homes went to that group,” he said. Morrison said interest
from offshore buyers spiked as the marketing period ended resulting in about 20-25 per cent of the units being purchased by foreign investors. But, Morrison added, the majority of buyers were within the target market: local, first-time buyers and a few empty-nesters. “Seventy per cent are New West residents or have strong connection,” he said, adding the units should be ready by November 2012.

This coming Thursday will mark the kickoff of the fourth summer season for the Royal City Farmers Market. Held in its usual place at Fourth Street and Royal Avenue in Tipperary Park, the market will start off the year on June 9 with fun-filled family events such as giveaways, prize draws and activities for the kids. Back by popular demand is Art in the Park, an open-air art gallery, and face painter Allyson Grant. To help celebrate the opening market, award-winning local band the Knots will be performing. The market runs from 3 to 7 p.m. every Thursday all summer long. Forty vendors will be on hand selling goods such as produce, meats, seafood, dairy and prepared goods, as well as a variety of different arts and crafts. This year, there are five eat-on-site vendors, including fried bread, kettlecorn, tacos, grilled sausages and vegetarian samosas. Food vendors on site will also have samples galore. This year also marks the return of the nutrition coupon program, designed to bring fresh farm produce to local families as well as skill-building workshops. Andrew Murray, founder and president of the market, is thrilled the summer season is opening soon. “Our fourth summer season promises to build on our growing reputation for putting on a great community event,” he said. “We’ll continue to incorporate art, music and environmental awareness as part of the market, alongside our wonderful array of food choices and crafts.” The Royal City Farmers Market is sponsored by Westminster Savings Credit Union, the City of New Westminster, the Heritage Grill, Derrick Thornhill, Hudsonny Design and Handmade and Tenth to the Fraser.ca.

Daycare marks 40th anniversary BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
St. Barnabas Daycare is proud of the hundreds – maybe thousands – of children and families it’s been able to serve during its four decades. The daycare, located in St. Barnabas Church in the Brow of the Hill neighbourhood, is celebrating its 40 years of service in New Westminster. Community members are invited to attend the celebration that’s taking place on Saturday, June 4 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. “We are really proud. Forty years – how many child-care centres have been going for 40 years, through thick and thin?” said executive director Cathy Sales. “I am so excited about the fact we are doing this.” The celebration will include story boards depicting the centre’s four decades of ser“Forty years – vice, entertaina family how many child- ment, scavenger hunt, care centres have a barbecue lunch by New been going for 40 served Westminster fireyears, through fighters, an official recognition thick and thin?” and cake-cutting ceremony at 1 CATHY SALES p.m. and more. executive director The daycare is located at 1055 Napanee St. (near 10th Street and Fifth Avenue). “We have never celebrated St. Barnabas’s milestones,” Sales said. “We feel it is important for us at 40 to stop and recognize the history of all the families.” Sales said it’s unbelievable to think that children who were with the daycare when it began are now 45 years of age. “Father Ron Barnes originally started it,” she said. “He and a group of the church people set up the daycare because they saw the need for children’s care in the community. It wasn’t necessarily for the church.” From its humble beginnings of 12 children, St. Barnabas has grown to an enrolment of 59. While the number of children attending the daycare has changed, some things have remained constant. “Families still struggle with paying for daycare,” said Sales, noting one study found it to be many families’ second highest monthly cost behind mortgage/rent payments. “It’s a huge expense. It’s not because the staff are getting great wages.” All of the staff at St. Barnabas Daycare are trained in early childhood education and have diplomas, with some having degrees and extra training. “I am hugely proud of the work we do,” Sales said. “I am hugely proud of the fact we are early childhood educators.” Sales, who teaches early childhood education courses at Douglas College, said ◗Daycare Page 12

there are few jobs where people go to work and are greeted by little ones who are delighted to see them. Staff take pride in knowing that parents can go to work or school knowing that their children are in an environment where they are valued, cherished and supported. “It’s all about the kids and the families,” Sales said. “The staff are really committed. They feel strongly that we make a difference in a child’s life.” While they’re viewed by some as “glorified babysitters,” Sales said early childhood educators are working to be recognized as professionals. “Unless you are a family that needs daycare for your children, the general public doesn’t see the work we do,” she said. “They don’t recognize that children are growing, are little sponges.” Conveying the importance of their work is just one of the struggles that early childhood educators face. Dealing with changing government policies and funding is another ongoing challenge. “Our history has been a history of struggling, struggling against a lot of odds,” Sales said. “We are really proud of the work we do.” Located at the St. Barnabas Church property on Napanee Street, the daycare appreciates its relationship with the church. “We have a very respectful relationship,” Sales said. “They do recognize the importance of this program.” St. Barnabas Daycare has been located in the same space at the church since its beginnings, although it’s expanded through the years. “It’s an old building with a lot of heart,” Sales said. “It’s the people that make it, it’s not the building. It’s the staff, it’s the families.” www.twitter.com/TheresaMcManus

It was part of a Wealth Consciousness course they started in January – a course that included a component of “giving back.” The group collected more than 2,000 teddy bears to take to children and also raised a couple of thousand dollars to buy supplies and food for a school and an orphanage. They brought along
several duffel bags full of sporting equipment and school/craft supplies, and they also purchased several items from the school’s and orphanage’s wish lists, including a computer for the school and enough staple foods to last a month at the orphanage.

Technology helps psychiatric care
BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER email@example.com
There’s nothing like the feeling of having the right tool for the job. Royal Columbian Hospital’s psychiatric department now has some clever new tools to practise telepsychiatry and help reach patients who might otherwise go without. Psych department members gave a demonstration of their high-definition monitors, cameras and secure intranet link to the Mission mental health office to show how telepsychiatry works in real time on Monday afternoon. In telepsychiatry, a patient in Fraser Health’s region who cannot easily travel to Royal Columbian for care can sit down in front of two monitors and a camera and have a clinical visit with their doctor remotely. Fraser Health first tried telepsychiatry in 2008 and started using it regularly in 2009. Now, thanks to a $40,000 donation for new equipment from Burnaby philanthropists Stan and Jeanette Hrescak, the program is being enhanced. After sorting out some technical hiccups, psychiatry staff in Mission and Royal Columbian appeared on each other’s screens. As one Mission psychiatrist put it, Mission tends to be the “poor cousin” in Fraser Health when it comes to psychiatric services, and a shortage of staff leaves patients
in Mission with few options. Dr. Anson Koo, a psychiatrist at Royal Columbian, said as population of the Fraser Valley grows, the need for this kind of innovation is going to grow as there simply isn’t enough money to get doctors into the more remote communities. “Everyone has the right to equality in access to health care. That wasn’t always lived up to previously, and I think now we’re moving towards that,” he said. “This is one of those tools that’s going to allow us to reach into those communities where we still have a little bit of work to do to get human resource planning up to where it needs to be.” Dr. Ambrose Cheng, a psychiatrist at Royal Columbian who regularly uses telepsychiatry, said the service fills that gap. “The alternative to this service would be either no service or waiting longer for the next available psychiatrist in Mission or that they come to Royal Columbian to see a psychiatrist,” he said. While Cheng admits it may take a little more effort to pick up on subtle nuances from patients, overall, his patients much prefer telepsychiatry to driving to New Westminster or waiting to see a psychiatrist closer to home. “I’m able to function, more or less, almost as good as in real life. We get our work done. They don’t really comment on it which, to me, is very good,” he said. “It’s not as good as face-to-face, of course, but
Brent Richter/THE RECORD
Psyched up: From left: Royal Columbian psychiatrist Dr. Ambrose Cheng, donor Stan Hrescak, Dr. Terry Isomura and Dr. Anson Koo try out the hospital’s new telepsychiatry equipment. the technology is good enough for me to make clinical decisions with patients, just as in real life.” Perhaps the strongest endorsement for telepsychiatry came from the patient at the other end. Jason (for privacy reasons no surname will be used), grinned and waved to a room full of psychiatrists, reporters and donors when he sat down in front of the camera. “I like it, actually. The problem is that when I need a doctor, you’re way over at Royal Columbian
Hospital, and there’s not enough psychiatrists here to go around so this is a good way. You can get in to see a doctor right away,” he said. “I think it’s cool. It’s like I’m watching TV only it’s live.” He said the small technical glitches that arise are worth it when it comes to getting help. “I like Dr. Cheng a lot, and seeing him this way is a lot better than nothing,” he said. Stan Hrescak beamed at the board table when he saw Jason’s
enthusiasm. He said that every department in the hospital could use better equipment, but other donors must step up through the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation to fill the gaps left by provincial funding. “We’re just fortunate enough that we are able to help out, and we’re very happy about that because we use the hospital. It’s very satisfying to know that it’s going to be put to such a good use,” he said.

Jobs for June in the garden BRANCHING OUT ANNE MARRISON
he growth surge that hits gardens in June is doubly welcome after so many months of grey skies and cold wet days. Suddenly warmer temperatures are tempting us outside to catch up on everything the spring monsoons have prevented us from doing. Because later plantings tend to catch up to earlier ones, there’s still time to plant seeds of peas, green onions, carrots, lettuce, chard and parsnips. Though it’s still slightly colder than in past years, the first week of June is also good timing for planting seeds of beets, beans, squash, cucumbers and pumpkins. It’s also time to prepare for winter eating by planting seeds of brussels sprouts, kale and broccoli. Tomato, cucumber and pepper transplants should be fine now in an unheated greenhouse or in a sheltered spot against a sunny wall. They need rich nourishment, lots of water and removal of all but two or three side-shoots. Usually the first few side-shoots can produce fruit, but subsequent ones are too late and are best removed. The bud-like scapes of garlic should also be taken out. When young, they’re great in stir-fries. Broad beans need to be checked for black aphids. When aphids (and the ants that farm them) appear, the tender bean tops need to be pinched out. Potatoes should have earth hilled up around them as they grow because their shallow roots produce tubers just under or actually on the surface of the soil. If potato tubers are allowed to bask in sunlight the skins green up and develop toxins. Lawn clippings are a great help if they’re used as a mulch in the vegetable garden. A mulched garden needs water less often, weeds don’t get started and the clippings add nitrogen. In rural areas, the clippings attract birds that scratch them up seeking the earthworms that congregate underneath. But
attracting birds is so good for the garden – the more birds, the fewer insect pests. Lawn clippings also help activate compost heaps when added in layers just a few inches deep. Deep piles of grass clippings don’t help as much because they tend to block moisture. Dead-heading is one of the most leisurely June activities. This prevents a lot of weeding later because many lovely flowers volunteer just as enthusiastically as weeds. Rampant self-sowers include oriental poppies, hellebores, Shasta daisies, ladies mantle, lupins and bronze leaf fennel. Hellebores, oriental poppies and bronze leaf fennel seedlings should be removed young because they have tenacious taproots. Any annuals that weren’t planted earlier should be planted now. Seeds for biennials such as Sweet Williams, foxgloves, double daisies and lunaria can be sown and planted out in early fall. As summer continues, roses need a lot of watering, but it should all be directed to the roots. Moisture on the leaves encourages black spot and other fungal diseases. The only exception is when green aphids infest the new shoots – a blast of water knocks them onto the ground where they stay. After shrubs flower, they can be pruned. Some, like mock orange have no problem having up to one third of their branches removed. Gardeners who want to produce young plants for gifts or next year’s plant sales can layer shrubs such as forsythia, viburnum and hydrangeas at this time. Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her by email, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Irving tried to leave city OUR PAST
ARCHIE & DALE MILLER
he story of Captain William Irving and family is an interesting one to which we have been connected for almost four decades. The Irvings are linked not just to New Westminster history, but also to the history of British Columbia, Oregon, California, the U.S. mid-west and west, the Canadian and U.S. east coasts, Scotland’s southwest corner, and even the high seas and an ocean or two. Visits to Scotland opened some interesting doors to information about the captain’s roots and his youth when he made decisions that would determine his life away from his native land. Research close to home in the Royal City and Victoria introduced even more about his character, his family life and connections to the area. Archival materials added stories
about business, ships, politics, and his family, and research on his son John in his later life, brought many strange stories indeed. During a recent visit to Ross Bay cemetery in Victoria, we ‘said hello’ to some folks from this story, including Rithet, Dixon, Dickson, Munro, Nesbitt, and John Irving. While going over some Irving references to old newspapers, we were reminded of a piece of “Captain Irving” history that adds some points of interest as well as a question or two. Basically, without a lot of detail, we find that in the spring of 1871, William Irving was tired, frustrated by government, getting on in age (in his 50s) and planning to leave the colony. This plan of action is powerfully stated in a newspaper ad in the Mainland Guardian: “For Sale. I offer for sale all my property in British Columbia, consisting in part, of the dwelling house in the city of New Westminster, now occupied by me, the Fraser River steamers Reliance and Onward and a controlling interest in the Albion
Iron Works, Victoria. The dwelling house is the best on the Mainland of British Columbia. There is a fruit garden attached to the premises containing about fifty choice fruit trees, apples, pears, cherries, plums, and peaches, bearing abundantly. The furniture will be sold with the premises.” The advertisement describes the Onward and her boilers, as well as a technical marine note or two, and points out that it is a good time to buy what with the “railroad surveys” soon to commence. The sale is also further explained as the advert states: “The above property will be disposed of at a great sacrifice for CASH, as I wish to retire from the Colony”. Interesting statements! The “dwelling house” is today’s Irving House on Royal Avenue. The furniture is undoubtedly some of the items that you can see today on a tour of the House. The intent to sell out did change and the family did stay, but what William did not know, was that he was going to die in about sixteen months. There is lots more to tell about this story.

Hot ideas to inspire your inner barbecue master BY JULIE SPURRELL CONTRIBUTOR email@example.com
here is something about the smell of food being cooked outside on a grill that always takes me back to the lazy summer days when I was young. Our family barbecued in the back yard or at the beach, fired up the Coleman stove while camping across the province, and toasted marshmallows in late night fire pits. Cooking and eating outside are the perfect way to celebrate the summer, and the library has lots of books to help novices and experts alike. The long-simmering debate between fans of charcoal and fans of gas may never be resolved. Each fuel source has its pros and cons, and some of the best cookbooks offer recipes and advice on cooking with both. Steven Raichlen is a wellrespected expert, and his Barbecue! Bible offers over 500 recipes, tips and advice on cooking with fire. Weber’s Way to Grill by Jamie Purviance provides a wealth of information on cooking techniques for gas and charcoal, and creative ideas for what
to cook, including secret sauces, rubs, and delicious side dishes. The variety of foods you can cook on your barbecue is limitless. In Pizza on the Grill, Elizabeth Karmel offers up a wonderful variety of meat and vegetarian pizzas that are perfect for backyard parties. Mary Gwynn will challenge your love of hot dogs and hamburgers with the delicious and easy-to-make recipes in her Vegetarian Barbecue Cookbook. If cooking outside means transporting your food in your backpack, Dorcas Miller’s Backcountry Cooking covers recipes, equipment and planning, along with tips and advice from expert hikers, to ensure that you have something nutritious and satisfying after a long day of hiking. If you are lucky enough to have a backyard or large deck, creating the perfect cooking space can really add to the fun of grilling. The library has many books on backyard design and landscaping, and Building Barbecues and Outdoor Kitchens by the writers at Sunset is sure to inspire your inner pit master.

By Thunder, junior ’Bellies lose to Langley BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
Larry Wright/THE RECORD
Legging it out: A North Vancouver Central Royals baserunner beats the throw to ﬁrst base in an 8-7 win by the New Westminster Royals at the 47th annual Hyacks Day baseball tournament at Moody Park on Sunday. The home Royals failed to advance to the ﬁnals despite a 2-1 record. Joelson del Rosario tied for second place in the home run derby. The New Westminster Twins placed third behind two teams from Hastings.
Knights win fourth AA golf title The St. Thomas More Knights did it again, winning their fourth consecutive B.C. AA high school golf title. The Knights defeated a field of 16 schools, including last year’s AAA runner-up Kwalikum by five strokes, to continue the winning streak which began with their first provincial title over Kalamalka back in 2008. Lucas Gatto was tied for the individual lead after the opening round with a one-under-par 71 at the Springs at Radium Resort course
on Monday but wound up second overall with a three-under 141 to finish runner-up. As a team, STM birdied 15 holes in the final round, while Gatto also eagled the par-5 471-yard third. Conner Kozak of W.L. Seaton won the individual championship with a five-under 139. Gatto shot a 71-70 – 141 in the two-round event. STM teammate Kevin Vigna came in tied for fourth overall with a tworound one-over-par 145. Gareth Lancaster, in his first year on the senior team turned the tide in
STM’s favour with a solid 155. Joshua Punzo and Nick Belle both carded 167s to round out the team scoring. The Knights trailed first-round leader David Thompson Secondary by two strokes after a combined opening day 302 total. STM finished at 605, 29 shots over par. “It was very, very exciting,” said STM sponsor teacher Joe Thierman. With four schools still in contention heading into the final holes, STM picked up five shots on a charging Kwalikum on the par-3 17th.
Discipline, or the lack of it, cost the New Westminster Salmonbellies some ground in B.C. junior A lacrosse. The junior ’Bellies were bounced 7-6 by the visiting Langley Thunder at Queen’s Park Arena on Tuesday. Max Weselowski and Brandon Bull, with his first of a career-high five goals, both scored in the opening five minutes of play that set the tone for the rest of the game. New Westminster appeared to never quite get its sticks right and seemed to allow the pesky Langley runners to get under its skin, which led to a parade of penalties in a scrappy middle period. “We had a lot to prove coming from last season,” said Bull after the game. “New West is one of the top teams. We were the underdogs. We had to get down and get some respect, and I think we showed that tonight.” Bull fired three more goals in the second period. He also added the gamewinner with the only goal of the final frame. “It was a huge confidence boost against one of the top teams,” said Bull. “This win for us will definitely send out shockwaves around the league.” New Westminster outshot the Thunder 49-31 in the contest, but had difficulty getting good scoring position on Langley keeper RyleyBrown,whoappeared deserving Tuesday of his current 81.28 save percentage. Leif Mydske led the Salmonbellies with a hat
trick on eight shots on goal and Mark Negrin potted an early pair. Tyler Digby, who had 10 goals in his first two outings, tallied just once in the game. Brandon Mulligan took the loss in goal. “I think we played down to their level. They’re a good team, but we just didn’t play our game,” said Daniel McQuade, who garnered four assists for New West. The frustration of the Salmonbellies was evident, particularly in the second period, when tempers led to more than 130 minutes in penalties. New Westminster is the most penalized team in the league to date, and this form has to stop, said McQuade. “We can’t keep getting in penalty trouble. It’s not going to cut it,” McQuade added. “We just have to come prepared, know your roll and do it.” Langley held a two-goal advantage three times in a contest they never trailed. New Westminster managed to pull even in both the first and second periods on late goals by Mydske. But a final rally wasn’t meant to be as Bull scored his 14th counter of the season on virtually the same crossing pattern that had been fruitful for the 19year-old lefthander on at least two other occasions earlier in the game. With five games in nine nights, beginning tonight (Friday) in Port Coquitlam, New Westminster has its work cut out for it. “It’s going to be tough,” McQuade said. “The league is real close. We have to forget about (the loss) and be sure of what we’re getting into next game.”
Saving the last pitch for a program best BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR email@example.com
Burnaby’s Cassidy Lee pitched perhaps the best game of her university career in her final NCAA Division II start. The Burnaby Mountain grad was outstanding in her final start for Cal State University – San Bernardino, retiring 16 batters in a row until finally giving up three runs on three hits in the final inning to fall 3-1 to eventual national champion University of California – San Diego in the West region women’s softball final late last month.
Lee took the loss hard, but others chose to look at what the hard-throwing lefthander did to help the Coyotes make program history. “It’s tough when a season comes to an end,” said San Bernardino head coach Tacy Duncan, in a school press release. “We accomplished something that had never been done in our sport at school and I’m extremely proud of each and every one of our team members and coaching staff.” Lee, along with fellow seniors Jacquelyn Holtzclaw and Priscilla Curiet, were praised by Duncan
for laying the foundation for the future of the program. “Those three played as freshmen in the NCAA tourney and finished their careers in the postseason, and for our 11 players coming back next year, good things are going to continue to happen because of this experience.” Pitching in her fifth straight contest for the Coyotes, Lee had a one-hitter going before giving up her first walk to lead off the eventual three-run seventh. “We played our hearts out today and came up just a little short,” Lee said in the release.
“It’s going to hurt for a while, but we came out of nowhere, beat the defending NCAA champions (Hawaii Pacific) and got to within a series of the NCAA finals.” Lost in the disappointment were Lee’s incredible tournament numbers – a 1.00 earned-run average, while allowing 25 hits and just eight runs, five earned – in 35 post-season innings. She also had 15 strikeouts in that fivegame span. What is more incredible is how she did it. San Bernardino played all season with a meager 13-player roster, including just two spare
pitchers. Through the regular season Lee fashioned a 17-10 record and a 2.75 ERA with 124 strikeouts in more than 180 innings pitched. “It was a really good experience. I don’t think anyone expected it. In the preseason polls, we were ranked seventh (in our conference),” Lee said during a long distance call last week. Left out of the Calfornia Collegiate Athletic Association finals following an 18-18 conference season, San Bernardino caught a break, qualifying for the ◗Softball Page 25

Lauren Vance picked up a silver medal in the 300m and a bronze at 1,200m. Fraser Stewart-Barnett was runner-up in the 800m and third in the discus.

1,000m and Shianne Lowka in the high jump. Ian Hunter won a bronze in the 600m and Noel Wong finished third in the 100m. The Royal City club also won the 10-year-old boys’ and nine- and 10-year-old girls’ relay races. Among those sharing in the winning relays were Jeremy Belcher, Anaiyah Bernier, Jessica Leung, Kathryn Marlon-Lambert and Gabrielle McCormick.

Softball: ‘If we didn’t win, we’d be done’ ◗ continued from page 23
West region championships three weeks after the team’s season had ended. Lee threw a gem in an opening 3-2 upset against the defending Div. II national champions. Against Sonoma College Lee was confident despite having lost three of four earlier contests to the conference rival. “I overheard them asking what time the second game was. When I heard them talk like that, I wanted to beat them even more,” said Lee. “I knew being a senior, it was our last year. It was finally our year. If we didn’t win, we’d be done, so I wanted to go and make it happen.”
N.W. blueliner coming home
And Lee did that, pitching two straight shutouts to help take San Bernardino the furthest it has ever gone in post-season play. “It just feels good. I don’t think of the games that have passed. But I’m still pissed off by the loss,” she said. But through it all, Lee and a small team of 13 individuals took away something that no one could deny, making the most of what opportunities were put before them. “It feels good we actually did it,” she conceded. “It was good we got through it.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Cancer June 21-July 22: You’re in a quiet, lowenergy month, but your hopes remain high, and friends still call – those hopes and friends are going to swell over the 12 months ahead, until your popularity reaches a 13-year peak, and your hopes burst into dreams fulﬁlled! But for now, accept a few weeks of quietude and recuperation. Meditate, contemplate and plan. Be charitable, spiritual, fulﬁll your obligations and deal with government agencies. Chase money Sunday/Monday. (Buy technology Sunday.) Paperwork, travel and messaging arise Tuesday to Thursday. Home, garden, kids Thursday onward. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Wishes come true this week and next.You’re still dealing with pressures on career, status and ambition fronts. Here, favour towards you continues until Thursday, but impatience and a critical attitude continue until June 20. Be diplomatic and eager to please, because the 12 months ahead can boost your career and status in the world in a lucky way – you could rise to a peak you’ve never achieved before! This inﬂuence can also expand problems – so don’t create any with impatience, illwill or (especially) unethical or illegal speech/action now to June 20. All’s good! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The accent lies on career, ambitions, prestige relationships and your status in the community, world. Generally all is well here, and productive, especially Tuesday and Friday (work or schmooze late!) and June 16/17. But your mind continues to contemplate bigger horizons, religious ones, or foreign climes, or intellectual or love matters. These have turned lucky, and will expand luckily over the twelve months ahead. But short-term (until June 20) continue to avoid legal hassles, especially over sexual situations, debt and investments. You succeed midweek! Chase money Friday.

Could You Use
Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: These weeks are easy but busy, ﬁlled with messages, paperwork, details and trips. Romance, pleasure, beauty and a winning streak visit Sunday to Tuesday morning – but don’t gamble with your income or possessions Monday p.m. Work and health concerns call Tuesday noon to early Thursday – plunge in early; your steady approach could trigger a lucky “wind at your back” inﬂuence, a bit of cosmic aid. Relationships start sweetly Thursday p.m., but they turn to confusion or misunderstanding this night, then right themselves (perhaps turning to love!) by Friday p.m. Plan accordingly. Taurus April 20-May 20: The emphasis lies on earnings, possessions, rote learning and sensuality. Your energy and charisma levels are good, your effectiveness high. And a cheerfulness about your monetary position in the world is stealing over you. In the 12 months ahead, you can make some excellent investment or ﬁnancial decisions,can achieve physical gratiﬁcation, and a partner’s income could improve, perhaps immensely! Your only “scourge” will be the tendency to put on weight (or to be arrogant due to your success). Be restful Sunday/Monday. Romance, pleasure arrive Tuesday p.m. to Thursday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness are tops! Someone who is not free to dally might “befriend” you (quite recently, now or soon) – this could turn into a year-long affair, making you desire marriage. But it’s doomed to disappoint, so remain honest, reject triangles. You will also be befriended by someone “unromantically” – or by an agency. You will be welcomed and aided by governments this year ahead. Start important projects this week. Sunday/Monday bring travel, messaging. Land, home succeed Tuesday/Wednesday. Romance “up and down” Thursday-Saturday – chase it Friday p.m.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The emphasis lies on legalities, religion, far travel, culture (rituals) higher education, broadmindedness, compassion and love. Lingering “threads” (vines) of recent research, sexual (perhaps verboten) attractions, investments, ﬁnances and debt, deep health concerns, and lifestyle changes still creep around you. Neither cut these off nor deeply commit to them yet. There is a “partner” in there: but perhaps an illicit one. This whole zone has very recently turned lucky, and will expand or present you with providential opportunities over the twelve months ahead. Stay honest! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The accent lies on depths, mysteries, research, sexual desires, subconscious urges, health diagnosis, dream analysis and occultism, large ﬁnances and lifestyle changes. It’s an “all or nothing” time – you either commit, or break off. If hesitating about commitment to someone who’s been around awhile, remember that your true love decade has just begun. A bird in the hand might not be worth two in the bush. Partnerships of all kinds, business and love, meet huge luck in the 12 months ahead – that luck just began last Saturday. Study your future Tuesday p.m. to Thursday a.m. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The emphasis lies on relationships, opportunities and opposition, love and war. Everything’s above board – friends and enemies are open, honest. Relocation might occupy your thoughts – the best, most fortunate time in a quarter-century for this will occur from June 2012 to July 2013 – why rush it? Some “trailing tasks” are a hold-over from May: just complete them. Realize your work and duties will expand greatly over the 12 months ahead – with commensurate rewards. Sunday/Monday are sweet, gentle. Be ambitious midweek. Your hopes, popularity rise Thursday p.m. onward!
If you own property Capital Direct can help.
June 5 - 11, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: This week and next pile work on your shoulders – and health, diet concerns. That’s OK, nothing you can’t handle; all will ﬂow fairly smoothly. (Take care in both areas Monday and Thursday nights.) Your luck is starting to grow in romantic, creative, pleasurable, speculative and child-oriented zones – it will last until summer 2012. You might neither see nor sense this for a long while, then suddenly, an event occurs. Be open, ready – and innocent enough to believe! Sunday/Monday bring secrets and money decisions. Midweek’s gentle, wise. Be ambitious Thursday night onward! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The focus lies on romance, creative ventures, art, beauty, pleasure, vacation, risk and speculation, and child-oriented projects. But these are nothing compared to the huge year-long streak of the same that will arrive by mid-2012 – one that will fulﬁll a major life-wish! Prepare for that time by building a secure platform psychologically, emotionally and in concrete terms (e.g., buy a house).Your luck in real estate, domesticity, with children, security, retirement, gardening, Mother Nature – will reach a decade high from June 22, 2011 to mid-June , 2012. Don’t start early! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The emphasis lies on your home, security, children, nourishment, on Mother Nature, retirement, endings and beginnings. A minor new phase or project might begin in these areas midweek. Usually this phase (late May to late June) creates a restful, sluggish mood designed to give you a mid-year rejuvenation. But this time a lot of errands, trips, visits, calls and paperwork keep you busy. June 4 starts a year in which your career will involve a lot of running around and communicating. Romance disappoints Friday, ﬂows smoothly Saturday. One met before Friday isn’t compatible. firstname.lastname@example.org • Reading: 416-686-5014
