Business leaders in New Westminster and Surrey will be holding discussions about the plans to replace the Pattullo Bridge. Some New Westminster residents have proposed that the Pattullo Bridge should be demolished and not replaced. This is a concern for Surrey board of trade CEO Anita Huberman. She has told media that it is “frustrating” to hear New Westminster residents support a smaller replacement bridge or no bridge at all, according to a Business in Vancouver article. But the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce has yet to take a stand on the Pattullo proposals. “From our chamber’s perspective, we won’t have a solid position until after that dialogue because we want to make sure we ask all of the right questions,” executive director Cori Lynn Germiquet told The Record. The chamber and board of trade are cohosting a meeting about the future of the bridge on May 24, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Fraser River Discovery Centre at 788 Quayside Dr. It will bring together representatives from TransLink and the cities of New Westminster and Surrey. The purpose of the meeting is to give businesses a voice, Germiquet said. “This is strictly for business,” she said. “We know businesses have a lot of questions, and they have some concerns about some of the proposals that are on the table, so this is an opportunity, in a business environment, to ask the questions and to get the responses.” As for Huberman’s stance on the suggestion of demolishing the bridge, Germiquet said, “that’s her opinion.” “Every city has its own opinion and every chamber has its own opinion,” she said, adding, “We respect each other’s opinions.”

Technique: Karsten Schelhas demonstrates butchering for students in the cooking program at New Westminster Secondary School. The cooking program is one of several ACE-IT trades training programs available at NWSS. The programs give students credit towards certiﬁcation in their trade of choice.
NWSS students get hands-on lessons BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER
Master butcher Karsten Schelhas recently visited New Westminster Secondary School to show cooking students the finer points of how to chop up half a pig from snout to tail. The students gathered around Schelhas as he told them, in his European accent, how to best butcher the pig. “You have to use everything,” he said, slicing through a thick piece of pink pork flesh. “You use as much of the animal as you can,” he said, but added, “you kill
humanely.” Schelhas, a fourth-generation butcher, was demonstrating his techniques to a group of NWSS students in the school’s professional cook level 1 ACE-IT program. The program enables students to take time during their school schedule to focus on a trade – such as cooking – with credit counting towards their certification training should they choose to pursue it after high school. ACE-IT (which stands for accelerated credit entry to industry training) programs are developed and offered as partnerships between school districts and post-secondary institutions. Cooking students – including 17-year-
old Hunter Blackburn – will continue their studies this summer at Vancouver Community College. Blackburn was among the group of students watching Schelhas’ butchering display. Blackburn has toiled in kitchens since he was just 12 years old. He started in the dish pit at a friend’s family restaurant and moved up the ranks to the point where today he works in the kitchen at the Boathouse Restaurant in New West. “It’s pretty awesome,” he said. “I’m one of the youngest people that works there.” After Blackburn graduates from the cooking program later this year, he plans
to look for a job at an upscale Vancouver restaurant and “just kinda learn as much as I can.” Blackburn, who’s already travelled extensively with his family, plans to one day move to Europe, where he’ll “travel for a while (and) just get lost.” With the ACE-IT program training under his belt, he will have a good chance of finding a European kitchen to disappear in. NWSS students can also take advantage of other trades training opportunities in carpentry, plumbing, auto-body refinishing, baking, metal fabrication, millwright, motorcycle and power equipment tech, painting and roofing.
Trustee opposed to six-lane bridge plans BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER
Trustee David Phelan wants the board of education to formally oppose a six-lane Pattullo Bridge proposal, which he believes would increase traffic in the city. Phelan sent out a press release Wednesday about his plan to make a motion against expansion at the board’s next meeting on
May 22. “I think any replacement of the Pattullo Bridge that increases vehicle traffic in New West is going to have harmful consequences for our students,” Phelan said in the release. A bridge expansion would result in more danger for students as they travel to and from school, lead to a deterioration of air quality and have negative impacts on neighbourhoods,
Phelan wrote. “For the health and safety of our students, we have a responsibility to take a position on this issue,” he said. “We need to look at a wide range of strategies that promote either maintaining or reducing the level of traffic passing through New Westminster. The decisions we make now are going to impact our schools and our city for generations.” Phelan and fellow trustee
Jonina Campbell recently wrote a letter to the editor outlining their concerns and stating their opposition to any bridge expansion. They are among a number of local residents who are concerned about the negative impact of the bridge expansion on the city. The issue has been a hot topic locally since TransLink began considering construction of a new Pattullo Bridge. TransLink has presented four alignments of
a six-lane bridge near the existing bridge for the public’s consideration. The City of New Westminster held two forums about its master transportation plan, which included discussions about the bridge expansion, earlier this month and roughly 320 people attended the two sessions. Most of those people turned up to discuss and hear about the bridgeexpansion plans.

City’s Westminster Club up for sale BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
Westminster Club may be selling its penthouse space on Columbia Street, but it isn’t prepared to go down without a fight. Formed in 1889, the business and social club has been located on the top floor of the Westminster Building since it opened in 1922. On Monday, the Westminster Club’s penthouse floor at 713 Columbia St. was listed for sale at $2.15 million. “It was a painful decision to come to,” said Allen Domaas, president of the club. “In the end, it wasn’t hard. We had been taking progressively larger mortgages to get some capital to refurbish.” As membership declined through the decades, the club spent less money on upkeep of its penthouse premises. A decision was made that in order to attract more members, the space needed to be refurbished. Marc Lotzer, managing consultant of the Westminster Club, said the club was unable to secure a new mortgage at a reasonable rate that would allow it to move forward with the next phase of its renewal
program. Rather than suffering through a high rate of interest, the board of directors decided to put its floor up for sale. The Cushman and Wakefield brochure states that the 7,429-square-foot property is 100 per cent of the strata interest in the entire seventh floor of the building. Options for the new ownership include having owner-occupied premises, using the floor to rent to individual office spaces, leasing the space back to the Westminster Club and maintaining the existing improvements and operating the facility as a private club for special events, catering or restaurant facility, Domaas said the club will consider all of its options when the sale completes, which could include leasing back its current space or moving to a new location. At this time, the club’s board of directors is focused on selling the club’s current real estate asset. “The future of the club will be decided at a later date, and then, only with the input of the valued members,” Domaas said. Domaas estimates the

club had a membership of more than 400 at its peak. As larger engineering and accounting firms have moved out of the city, they’ve taken members with them. “We are down to less than 100,” he said. “It’s been difficult.” Domaas took over the helm of Westminster Club in 2008, around the same time that the City of New Westminster was developing its plans for the future of the downtown. While the area around
the Westminster Building is starting to benefit from projects like the upgrades to Columbia Square, the construction of Plaza 88 and the arrival of new condominiums, Domaas said the club couldn’t get a mortgage rate that would allow it to carry on. “It didn’t work for us,” he said. “We are selling the floor. We are not closing the club.” A press release from Westminster Club states that the “unfortunate reality” is that it was unable
to complete the refinancing of the club to take it to the next level at the very time that it began to see growing interest in membership and renewal of its premises in the Westminster Building was underway. Domaas believes New Westminster would benefit by having a club where people from all corners of the city can socialize and talk business.

Liberal government has of how then-Finance Minister Colin finally got around to making good on its Hansen and Premier Gordon Campbell promise to get rid of the harattempted to make fools of us monized sales tax (HST). all by deciding to implement the HST only hours after polls B.C.

recovered from the blow that the antiHST crowd delivered. At least in part, that is due to the time it has taken – and continues to take – to accede to the results of a historic democratic exercise in this province. It supposedly took only days to implement the brand new HST, but somehow, it has been impossible to eliminate it as quickly. But when you wake up on April Fool’s Day next year, the joke will finally have ended.
fool – the B.C. Liberals’ HST fiasco put an end to Campbell’s premiership and seriously damaged any ambition of political advancement for Hansen. B.C. voters were not fooled – and they certainly were not amused. The anti-HST movement grew under the leadership (ironically!) of former B.C. fool … er … premier Bill Vander Zalm, and succeeded despite Campbell’s sacrifice of his premiership and a complete change in B.C. Liberal leadership. The B.C. Liberals still have not
Can Liberals stave off annihilation? IN THE HOUSE
he latest poll is out, and it shows the B.C. Liberals would face annihilation at the hands of the voters if an election were held today. The poll, by Angus Reid, shows the NDP has the support of 50 per cent of decided voters, while the B.C. Liberals have less than 25 per cent support. Those are similar numbers to the results of the 2001 provincial election, which saw the NDP reduced to a paltry two seats, while the B.C. Liberals racked up an historic 77 seats. The poll shows the B.C. Liberals have lost support of half the number of people who voted for them in 2009. By my reckoning, that translates into the party winning just a dozen or so seats if an election were held today. The party may be able to count only a couple of seats in Richmond, two in South Surrey, two on the North Shore, two in the Fraser Valley, one in the Okanagan, one in Vancouver and one in the north as relatively safe ridings. But the election is not being held today, of course. It’s set to occur precisely one year from now, and polling numbers can
change quite a bit by then. However, there seems to be precious little evidence that the numbers will change in any significant way. These are bleak findings for the B.C. Liberals, which raises an interesting question. Will Premier Christy Clark actually call an election earlier than May 2013? While it still seems doubtful an earlier election call would enable the B.C. Liberals to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, it might give the party the best chance to actually survive to fight another day. Waiting until May 2013 before heading to the polls will likely mean the B.C. Liberals will be completely enveloped by a strong stench of political death. We’ve seen that movie before. In 1991, Social Credit premier Rita Johnston went into the campaign and quickly became a figure of near-ridicule as it was readily apparent her party had absolutely no chance of winning and was, in fact, going to be thrashed in the election. The same thing happened to NDP premier Ujjal Dosanjh in 2001. That election campaign was really over before it even started, and the NDP emerged with just two seats. In both cases, Johnston and Dosanjh looked like desperate creatures, playing out the string and marching with certainty over a big cliff. The Social Credit party – once
Keep smart meters away Dear Editor:
This new hydro meter appears to have many flaws. It seems strange to me, bills are only going up and never down! Shake your heads, hydro customers. Why would B.C. Hydro spend billions of our money if they weren’t getting a hand full of return? Why is our “temporary” premier Ms. Clark so quiet about this mess? The only times she appears on TV is when there is something to smile about. Since B.C. Hydro has millions of our money to spend, why not start to put some of our ugly poles in the ground? Just think how much money you would save during a power outage. Boy oh boy, what a cash cow. B.C Hydro, stay ◗Liberals Page 7 away from my property, and I hope that the City of
New Westminster has something cheaper in mind before it is all spent on a new Pattullo Bridge! Remember what I wrote you: all you need is one wide lane going each way. Many, many cars will take a different route. L. Luyten, New Westminster
Would tolls change your mind? Dear Editor:
Re: Confessions from a Pattullo commuter, In My Opinion, The Record, May 16. I wonder if Christina Myers would change her tune if she was levied a toll every time she came through New Westminster. Having spent the last three months in Pakistan, I like the way there are tolls (not big dollar values, but tolls) every few kilometres. It makes you think before you drive.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Why not a tunnel instead?
We want less traffic in New Westminster, not more! TransLink’s question – “Do you want the new Pattullo Bridge with six lanes, two extra, and they’ll be truck lanes, ‘here’ or ‘there’?” – has got our attention. Remember when that bridge was closed due to a fire? No problem. Drivers got used to the other options. We don’t need that bridge, for reasons your writers and readers have mentioned. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the traffic could go under the city, like it does under the English Channel, in the “chunnel”? Or like our SkyTrain does in some areas of Vancouver? The “cut and cover” method is not always used. That caused a lot of disruption for business on Cambie Street in Vancouver. We know how to “tunnel.” As I listened to others at the afternoon (transportation) meeting at Century House, I thought, if we’re having a bridge as offered, how can we not have more traffic come through our city? The tunnel concept came to mind. This option has not been explored by our professionals. So I thought, we’re not ready to decide where the new bridge should be, because we don’t know whether the right way to deal with the traffic would be a tunnel. If a tunnel is a good idea, then the question of the best location for the tunnel might be important to be considered, before deciding about the bridge. But as I heard more, I thought this is our opportunity to get rid of the Pattullo Bridge. Money might be better spent investigating the feasibility of a tunnel or tunnels. Maybe we can build something around the trains. Traffic is the curse of this city. Imagine a New Westminster without rush hours or trains.
Let’s think outside the box that TransLink gave us. Franci Louann, New Westminster
TransLink needs politicians and professionals Dear Editor:
The next provincial government must be careful not to do an easy pendulum swing on transit governance. TransLink has had two different kinds of board. Both decision-making bodies are necessary. We need a mayors’ board to make up a “wish list” of what their constituents would like to see and to come to an agreement on priorities. This is the legitimate job of politicians. We also need an empowered board of professionals, made up of people like accountants, engineers and transit planners, to cost these things out and to emphasize the statistical side of things and to make sure we keep pace with growth without stumbling into the kind of cost overruns that give so many government projects a bad name. A fixed funding formula is needed for the regular running costs of transit, and another formula is needed for expansions. If the mayors want to expand beyond those limits or to speed up the projects, they should be required to take the matter to referendum which will give a temporary increase in taxes, but only to the end of that particular project. The voters will have the right to say no, but the politicians will be able to use their political skills to work out a new vision of transit with the voters, or they must stick to a formula. Aren’t we already more than halfway there?

Liberals: Is it time for Clark to gamble? ◗ continued from page 6
a longtime political dynasty – proceeded to fall apart and eventually disappear completely. The NDP, with a more committed base of support, was able to rebuild to the point of being competitive in the 2005 election and now appears poised to regain power the next time B.C. voters head to the polls. Clark knows her political history and once said she knew full well the dangers an unpopular government faces if it waits until the last moment before issuing the election writ. She has also said she thinks her political strength is actually campaigning (critics will no
doubt agree she may be better at that part of the political game than actual governing) and thinks she can out-fight NDP leader Adrian Dix in an election campaign. But waiting until the last possible moment to campaign would rob her of any chance of at least trying to look competitive. Dix could sleepwalk through such a campaign and still come home with a big majority. However, an earlier election call could at least dispel the image of desperation and allow her to look more like a gambler. The NDP is on record as favouring elections in the fall – not the spring – so it’s hard to see that party
violently oppose an early trip the ballot box. None of this is to suggest an earlier vote would translate into an election victory for the B.C. Liberals. If they can become a bit more competitive, they could win about two dozen seats – enough to ensure a strong presence as the Official Opposition, and a big enough base on which to rebuild. And that’s the challenge that now seems to be facing Clark and her party. It’s not about beating the NDP and is instead all about surviving as a viable political party to fight another day.

◗ CITY HALL IN BRIEF
Homeowners want to buy city-owned land email@example.com
Owners of a property on East Sixth Avenue want to buy a piece of city-owned land at the rear of their property. The owners of 325 East Sixth Ave. want to increase the size of their property so they can add on to their 1939 house. A staff-commissioned appraisal of the property, which was paid for by the applicants, determined the sale price of the land to be $38,000. The increased value of the home means the city would get approximately $80 more in property tax revenue from the property each year.
Harp Sihota has to wait awhile before he takes another run at civic office. The Local Government Act requires candidates to file campaign disclosure statements by certain dates. Coun. Jaimie McEvoy filed a day late, which resulted in a $500 penalty. Sihota, a council candidate, had not filed his papers by April 24, which means he won’t be able to run in the next election. Candidates who didn’t file disclosure papers by April 18 are not allowed to run in the next local government election in all jurisdictions of B.C.

web. What exactly aren’t we communicating with parents?” Ewen said. It’s “nonsense” to suggest that union members come first in the district, Ewen said. Legal constraints prohibit the district from discussing personnel matters, he added, speaking to the ongoing math issue. “If we want to deal with something, we need to do it properly within the context of what we are legally able to do,” he said. The board next meets on Tuesday, May 22, 7:30 p.m. at city hall.

ties to the current citizens and businesses in the city.” Westminster Club, one of the oldest notfor-profit organizations in B.C., was registered under the Societies Act of B.C. in 1928. Domaas is optimistic the club will continue to exist even if it’s not in the Westminster Building. “We have been a club for 122 years,” he said. “I certainly don’t want to be known as the guy who closed Westminster Club.” According to the club’s website, it was originally created to be a private club where gentlemen from the community could gather to socialize, read, drink, dine, shoot billiards and play cards. “When a fire gutted the city core in 1898, the club drifted from place to place until the construction of the Westminster Building in 1912 (then known as the Westminster Trust Building),” said the website. “The club took up residence on the top floor of the Westminster Building and remains there to this day.”

various locations remains to be seen. “You think about how they have had to move around,” he said about the local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. “Little by little they keep chugging along. An association like Westminster Club is more about the people than the place.” In recent years, Westminster Club has made an effort to revitalize its penthouse space so it could attract more members. A press release noted that much of the work done to “renew an operationally broken facility and a tired venue” has been done by staff and members. “It is our firm belief the Westminster Club is needed now more than ever by businesses within New Westminster to provide a venue for business people to meet and build relationships in a safe and friendly atmosphere,” Domaas said. “This is particularly true as the city renews itself and attracts new businesses and residents to the community seeking to build strong

33rd Annual New Westminster
Sunday, May 27, 2012 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. You won’t want to miss this year’s outstanding line-up of beautiful homes. Thanks to our sponsors and homeowners who make this tour possible!
How it all began In 1980, a small group of New Westminster residents incorporated the New Westminster Heritage Preservation Society, in direct response to the demolition of many beautiful heritage homes throughout the city. This new society was not always cordially welcomed, but it was a brash new voice for the growing and important heritage conservation movement in the Royal City. At the time, the idea behind the tour was a simple one: Open up several
Guidelines for tourgoers
For us to make the tour a success for you, and respect the wishes of our homeowners who have kindly agreed to put their special homes on tour, here are some guidelines to follow. Ask our fantastic volunteers if you have any questions. And above all else, have a great tour! • The tour is self-guided—the map in the centre of this program will help you make your way to each home. • You may visit each location once in any order between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. (St. Mary the Virgin Anglican Church opens at 11 a.m.) • While the use of a car or bike is advisable, New Westminster is not a big city. You can easily enjoy the day and walk. • You will be required to present this program at the door of each destination to gain entry, so keep
it with you at all times. • Wearing slip-on shoes with comfortable socks is extremely wise. Some of our homeowners may require vistors to remove their shoes at the door to protect fragile carpets and ﬂoors, especially in the event of rain. • Remember that this tour has been planned for a limited number of people and, as a result, this “ticket” can only be used ONCE without exceptions. • Please ask the volunteers on duty before taking pictures. Some homeowners may prefer that you don’t photograph the interior of their home. • Public washrooms are available at the Justice Institute (the tea venue) and Irving House. See map in program centre for details.

beautiful heritage homes to public viewing and inspire and educate residents and visitors alike that these architectural gems should be saved ... not bulldozed. Without much fanfare, the ﬁrst tour was launched on May 24, 1980, as part of the Hyack Festival. There were a few hundred tickets sold at $3.50 each and just ﬁve homes on the tour. Thirty-three years later, we can look back with justiﬁable pride at how the homes tour has grown into one of B.C.’s major showcases of architectural heritage, inspiring other cities to organize similar events in the past few years. The New Westminster Homes Tour is Canada’s longest-running event of its kind, and has brought thousands of visitors to the Royal City to learn about its history and get a glimpse into years past.

Tickets are $35, NWHPS Members $30
Funding heritage and community development Funds raised go to preserve and protect our heritage as well as to enhance our community. In 2012, funds from ticket sales were donated to: • The New Westminster Heritage Foundation, a non-proﬁt society co-funded by the City of New Westminster to ﬁnancially assist owners of municipally designated heritage homes. The Foundation’s goal is to encourage voluntary municipal heritage designation and to assist homeowners in their restoration efforts through the Foundation’s house grants program. • Tourism New Westminster • Queen’s Park Healthcare Foundation, to provide compassionate care (and new programs) for the aging population and persons with disabilities
Tickets are on sale at these locations: Thiscute,littleone-storyrancheratHenleyandEdinburgh,ofindeterminate age, may once have been an Edwardian cottage. According to city archives, the house was built by Albert Hammarbert. Arthur Lee, a marine engineer, is listed as the occupant in the 1910 city directory. Six years later, a “Miss Lee” lives here, who marries Robert Braden in 1916. Braden, a lawyer, is listed as living here in 1918. We assume the dramatic changes to the house’s exterior, rooﬂine and footprint started in 1952, when Niels Krag bought the house. In 2004, the Krag family sold the house to the current owners. Initially, they were unsure when the house was built, thinking it was a 1950s’ home. The owners believe that Mr. Krag’s ‘50s renos probably saved the house and are pleased to have continued its preservation by making their own improvements to create a contemporary family home.

E. 812 Massey Street
This post-and-beam-style home was custom built in 1956 for William and Helen Dempsey. The previous owners undertook a major renovation in 2006, updating the kitchen and the main ﬂoor powder room. Originally, the main bathroom was also accessible from the master bedroom, through an attached powder room. The door was replaced with a solid wall, creating two beautiful, threepiece bathrooms. The current owners, who purchased the house in 2008, painted the interior, replaced the original grass cloth in the den, removed the carpeting in the dining room and bedrooms and replaced the living room carpet. The current owners have completed the renovations in the downstairs family room started in 2006.
B. 1011 Hamilton Street The Thomas McCullough House #1 (1912) Happy birthday Hamilton Street! The ﬁrst of this year’s Hamilton Street trio celebrating their 100th birthdays is an impressive Craftsman-style Arts & Crafts home.Itwasbuiltatacostof$5,000bydevelopersMcCullough and Gostick in 1912 and was initially the home of Mr. Thomas McCullough himself. Thomas and his wife Florence are listed as living here in 1913. However, by 1922 the home had been sold to Samuel Havelock Thompson. By 1924, the home had changed hands again, this time being sold to the Thomas family. Albert Henry Thomas and Lilian Mary (nee Cuddleford), were married on Christmas Day in 1915 in South Vancouver, and then moved to New Westminster, initially residing at 225 Mowat Street. The couple had ﬁve children (three boys, two girls) by the time they moved to 1011 Hamilton Street. When the current owners took possession of the home in 1989, they had to undertake extensive restoration to convert the home back to a single-family residence.
C. 1013 Hamilton Street The Thomas McCullough House #2 (1912) The second of this trio of 100-year-old homes, like its Hamilton Street “siblings” on the 2012 tour, was built by developers McCullough and Gostick, built in 1912. Close examination of the design and exterior of all these homes show that they were outﬁtted with lots of similar features and materials. Originally purposed as a rental property along with 1015, the home cost $3,000 to build. It was owned and contracted by Mr. McCullough to serve as a revenue investment for his home next door at 1011 Hamilton. It was similarly sold by the McCulloughs a few years after being built. The broad front verandah of this house is similar in design to the other centennial sisters of this Hamilton set, and provides a sheltered viewing area of the street, a popular evening pastime of the period. Upon entering the home, visitors will immediately appreciate the philosophy of the Arts & Craft movement and its celebration of natural materials in the creation of this lovely home.

Sunday, May 27, 2012 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $35, NWHPS Members $30
D. 1015 Hamilton Street The Thomas McCullough House #3 (1912) While known today as the Mary McBride House — the mother of Sir Richard McBride, B.C.’s Premier from 1903 to 1915 — this third Hamilton Street centenarian was originally built as a rental property by developers McCullough and Gostick. Despite both Mary Agnes and son Richard being proud New Westminster residents, when the house was built she lived at 47 Royal Avenue, while Richard resided in Victoria. Mary is listed in 1912 as a widow, following the death of her husband Arthur Hill McBride, who passed away in May 1909, three years before the home was built. Mary McBride was the home’s fourth owner, and did not even purchase the home until November 1926. First owners were Thomas and Florence McCullough. The home went through three other ownerships before being purchased by the current owners in 1988. Substantial alterations over the years presented them with signiﬁcant restoration challenges.

The William & Helen Dempsey House (1956)
The Robert & Mary Blake House (1939) This home was established as the Van Dop Gallery in 1996 and serves both functions naturally and invitingly, demonstrating how art can bring a house to life. A terraced back garden provides a beautiful backdrop for either family gatherings or business functions, and is the perfect setting for the garden sculptures that punctuate the patios and beds. The stone wall along the front of the property is a reminder of past craftsmen whose art was ﬁrst admired here over 70 years ago. It’s difﬁcult to imagine that the tall, elegant house at 421 Richmond Street is, at its heart, a modest little bungalow. Built in 1939 by Robert Blake, it was a precursor to the modern houses of the Victory Heights subdivision aboves. The current owner moved here in 1985.
G. 346 Sherbrooke Street
The Charles Crook House (1911)
Carpenter Charles Crook built this home in 1911. Sapperton’s construction boom started at the turn of the century, when the neighbourhood was ofﬁcially included as part of New Westminster in 1889. Crook then sold the property to the Lanner family who appears to have rented it for 15 years until it was sold to Mr. Cecil Learn in 1928. The current owners’ visits to the land titles ofﬁce has provided them with a detailed history of the land their home sits on. From 1908 to 1976 the property changed hands 15 times and was converted in the 1970s to an up-and-down duplex. Between 2003 and 2006 a previous owner renovated the house and returned it to a single-family dwelling. The home’s boldly painted exterior catches your eye, along with other details such as the rooﬂine with a steeply pitched front gable accented with decorative trusses at the apex; the large, hipped dormer on the roof’s northside; the exterior cladding of shingles in a coursed pattern with more decorative scalloped ﬁsh-scale shingles in the top gable.

H. 121 East Columbia Street The St. Mary the Virgin Anglican Church (1865)
This historic timber frame church with its gothic-arched windows was designed by architect J.C. White, formerly a Lieutenant with the Royal Engineers, and built in 1865 by ex-sappers. Before this the engineers and sappers worshipped in the barracks of the nearby encampment, now known as Sapperton. In 1932 repairs to the roof revealed an old roof board inscribed, “This church was built by Daniel Richards, began on the 11th of January and ﬁnished on the 20th of March, 1865.” It can be seen next to the lower entry doors. Although Holy Trinity Anglican Church had already been established downriver in the “city,” St. Mary’s was in close proximity to Government House (near what is now the intersection of Richmond and Columbia Streets) and attended by Governor Frederick Seymour and his family, thus making it the more fashionable church to attend. Alas, in 1868, capital city status was given to Victoria and St. Mary’s lost much of its congregation and its prestige. Despite having to endure extensive reconstruction after two ﬁres, St. Mary the Virgin Anglican Church is still very much the charming country church that local dignitaries and common folk alike ﬂocked to 147 years ago.

The Angus J. McColl House (1893)
I. 126 Granville Street
This beautiful Victorian home was built in 1893 at the corner of Granville and Vancouver Streets near the entrance to Queen’s Park for Angus J. McColl, a lawyer trained in Ontario, who came to New Westminster in 1882. It was designed by Richard P. Sharp, an English-born architect who moved to the Royal City in 1889 and designed many ﬁne homes and buildings in New Westminster and elsewhere in the province. Sharp’s major claim to fame, however, was his brief architectural partnership, starting in 1891, with renowned B.C. architect Samuel Maclure before the latter relocated to Victoria. McColl was appointed Queen’s Council in 1892 and, in 1898, Chief Justice of B.C. Outstanding interior features of the house include the spectacular cedar-panelled front hall and staircase, “beehive” brick ﬁreplace, and wonderful art glass designed and crafted in New Westminster by Henry Bloomﬁeld and Sons. In 1911, another famed B.C. architectural ﬁrm — Gardiner and Mercer — were commissioned by then-owner Lewis Allen Lewis (manager of the Brunette Sawmill Company) and his wife Annetta to design an addition which included a large Arts and Craft dining room (now used as a family room).
K. 324 Fourth Street
The Edmund C. Traves House (1905)
Irving House is the oldest intact house in the Lower Mainland. It is still on its original site and when Captain William Irving had it built in 1865, it was the fanciest house in the city. It is owned by the City of New Westminster and is operated by the New Westminster Museum and Archives (NWMA). Captain Irving was born in Scotland in 1816, went to sea and eventually became a captain with his own ship. After coming to the West Coast during the California Gold Rush, he met his wife-to-be, Elizabeth Jane Dixon in Portland, Oregon in 1851. They were married that same year and later had ﬁve children. In 1859 the family moved to Victoria during the Fraser River gold rush and Captain Irving began operating sternwheelers on the Fraser River. Captain Irving had this house designed and built by T. W. Graham. Contrary to the legends, it was neither built by the Royal Engineers, nor was it built in 1862-64. Future plans include updating the
electrical ﬁxtures to increase the historical accuracy, and wallpaper restoration. We hope that you will come often over the next several years to watch our progress as the house is restored to the splendor of yesteryear. NOTE: Public washrooms are available at Irving House.
The Captain Philpott House (1908) “Westham”
Captain W.H. Philpott, a master mariner, named his house “Westham” after a village in Essex, England. This impressive Edwardian-style house features a columned verandah, dominant front gable and side dormers. The captain built his house at 433 Carnarvon Street, in view of the Fraser River and the house remained in the Philpott family for over 60 years. As time passed and the city grew, the glorious view of the Fraser was blocked by highrises and this once gracious home was divided into suites, became a halfway house and ﬁnally fell into disrepair. No longer a beloved family home in a genteel neighbourhood, Westham was slated for demolition to make way for an apartment building. In May 1990, Westham was one of three heritage homes rescued and moved up the hill to the Queen’s Park area. During the following year, Westham was meticulously restored and updated with new plumbing and wiring. Although the ghost of the late Captain Philpott (which was viewed more than once on Carnarvon Street) did not travel with his home to its present site, he would no doubt be pleased that the house he built for his family remains a treasured family home.
The David & Annie Archibald House (1913)
L. 218 St. Patrick Street
When the current owners bought this Queen Anne-style cottage in July 2006, it was hard for them to appreciate its vintage beauty. The Queen’s Park home had lovely period touches – a bay window and gable dormers – but it had endured muddled renovations since 1905, when it was built for Edmund Traves, a manager for the Pat Burns and Co. meat ﬁrm, his wife Mary Anne, and their son Edmund. The original ﬁr ﬂoors were covered in layers of old carpets and linoleum. The 10-foot ceilings had been obscured by lowered ceilings. The home had no foundation and was sitting on rotted posts and beams. The exterior was clad in stucco and most of the interior heritage ﬁttings had been sacriﬁced during a late 1970s renovation, which saw the removal of the original wood windows, pocket doors, ﬁve-panel interior doors, baseboards and casings. In fact, when the owners toured it during an open house, they felt the task of saving the 3,400 square-foot two-storey home would be overwhelming. Fast forward six years to the spring of 2012. Outside, the home’s original ﬁr cladding was uncovered, restored where necessary and repainted in period colours using Benjamin Moore’s Hasbrouck Brown, Shaker Beige and black.
M. 112 St. Patrick Street
Irving House (1865)
J. 302 Royal Avenue
Originally located at 508 Sixth Avenue, this striking house was designed by architect Edmund John Boughen, in 1913, for a local businessman, David Archibald and his wife Annie. This house, however, is fondly remembered as the Wadsworth House, named for long-time owner Richard Wadsworth, who purchased the home in 1921and operated Wadsworth and Deardon Meats, which was located on Sixth Street. This house is a very early example of a Craftsman-style bungalow featuring: simple gables, extended eaves with decorative brackets called corbels, a wide, open front porch, supported by heavy masonry or wood piers and hand-crafted interior details. Considered at risk due to neglect, and facing demolition to make way for commercial development on Sixth Avenue, the current owners undertook the massive task of moving the house to its present location. Working with a local architect and general contractor, the current owners began the job of restoring the home.
N. 429 Second Street
The Leonard McLeod House (1926)
This charming English Cottage-style house was built in 1926 by local carpenter Leonard G. McLeod for himself and his family. Despite its modest size, the home had four bedrooms and was one of very few houses in the neighbourhood that could boast a second bathroom. In 1987, the present owners bought the house and shortly thereafter extended the entire back wall, enlarging the kitchen, bathroom and den. During the spring and summer of 2011, the owners embarked on an extensive renovation. They enlarged the kitchen out the side and back, tripling its size and allowing in more light and views to the front yard. Cabinetry with a nod to the Arts and Crafts movement now brightens the kitchen and provides amazing pantry space along one wall. Although still avid gardeners, the homeowners weren’t unhappy to lose garden space to the expanded house; now they have more time to enjoy a glass of wine on the back porch, overlooking the fruits of their labour.

Soup Nazi in town for Saturday event AROUND TOWN
he Soup Nazi is back in town this weekend to dish out some soup for a local fundraiser. Larry Thomas, who played the iconic Soup Nazi character on Seinfeld, is returning to Greens and Beans Deli on Saturday, May 19. He’ll be serving soup at the Soup For Our Bellies fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. – with all proceeds going to the New Westminster
junior and intermediate A Salmonbellies lacrosse teams. “We are going to have different things going on that day,” said café owner Leona Green. “We have a jazz band from the high school.” Greens and Beans Deli is located at 143 East Columbia St. in Sapperton.
Anniversary wishes to Ken and Georgina Emerson, who celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on May 17. While the happy couple moved to Victoria about three years ago, they spent most of their lives living, working and raising a family in the Royal City. “Both my parents were
raised in New Westminster and graduated from high school there, one from (Duke of) Connaught and the other from (Trapp) Tech,” said a noted from daughter Sherry Nantais. “My dad was born at the Royal Columbian Hospital, as were all three of their children, two of their grandchildren and one of their great-grandchildren.” Ken worked for many years at Westminster Fish Company, which had been located on Front Street. He also coached his sons’ lacrosse and hockey teams for many years.
A New Westminster author is in the running for a prestigious literary award in South Africa.
New Westminster resident Erich Rautenbach’s book, The Unexploded Boer, has been longlisted for the 2012 Sunday Times Alan Paton Award for non-fiction. Written in Canada and published by Random House Struik imprint Zebra Press in Cape Town, the memoir is described as a “wild story of rebellion and retribution” that recreates the hippie/glam subculture of 1970s Cape Town and follows the author as he tries anything to avoid conscription into the South Africa army, including smuggling dagga (marijuana), leading to his arrest by undercover cops. Rautenbach spent the three months in South
Africa this past winter to promote The Unexploded Boer and to write and research for future projects. He was a featured author at the recent Lit Fest New West. While the book can be found in bookstores all across South Africa and Namibia, The Unexploded Boer is available locally in at select Chapters and Indigo stores in Greater Vancouver as well as through Amazon.ca and Chapters.Indigo.ca.
Coun. Betty McIntosh may have left the Royal City for a vacation, but she couldn’t fully escape New Westminster. On a recent cruise to
Hawaii, the city councillor met about 20 people from the Royal City. “I didn’t know these people – but they knew me,” she laughed. “You’d walk off the ship at a port – there is someone saying, ‘Hi, Betty.’ I would say, ‘Are you a resident of New Westminster?’” Sure enough, they were. It seems residents from Sapperton to Queensborough had booked space on the same tropical getaway. Do you have an item for Around Town? Send ideas to Theresa, email@example.com.

New Westminster SALMONBELLIES Season Opener
June 24, 2012
Queens Park Arena VS
Honouring the Bellies past Association regular season champions host the Nanaimo Timbermen, the Bellies have big plans to honour some of their own.
Cowieson with Mann Cup by Carly Rigby Come opening night, the New Westminster Senior Salmonbellies will offer something beyond the usual heavy hits and scoring excitement that fans have grown to expect. On May 24th, when the 2011 Western Lacrosse
Having a jersey retired is the highest honour an athlete can experience. It happens even less frequently than names are added to the Hall of Fame. In the lifetime of the organization, the Salmonbellies have been graced by a long list of good players, but only six of them have been great enough to warrant this treatment. Those players were #5 Geordie Dean, #6 Eric Cowieson, #7 Paul Parnell, #12 Jack Bionda, #13 Wayne Goss and #19 Cliff Sepka. Between them, they have celebrated 26 Mann Cup championships, eight Mike Kelly awards as the most valuable player in the Mann Cup series, ten WLA MVP awards, 9 WLA play-off MVPs and 43 All-Star mentions. Collectively, they have played 2799 games and combined for 8028 points. For these elite six players, plaques displaying their retired numbers have been mounted on
the east gondola at Queen’s Park Arena, above the wooden ﬂoor where they’d exercised and executed their skill. In recent years, the club’s current President, General Manager and former player himself, Dan Richardson began to wonder if the club was doing enough in the names of these legendary mean. “These Salmonbellies were not only the greatest players the club had ever seen, they were also some of the best players the world has ever seen,” Richardson explained. “When I looked up at that wall, I realized their signiﬁcance wasn’t being represented and that we weren’t giving them the respect they deserve.” After the 2011 season ended, Richardson launched an initiative to have those plaques replaced with proper banners that would hang from the rafters. The Salmonbellies Alumni Association got on board to help. The result is something Richardson believes every lacrosse fan should see and with which every player, family member, friend and former teammate will
be impressed. “I was inspired by teams from other sports and o rg a n i z a t i o n s have paid tribute to the players who made their clubs successful. The Bellies are Goss with Mann Cup a world class organization and we’ve made a world class effort to honour our greats.” All ﬁve of the honoured players will gather at the home opener for the unveiling of the banners. Mrs. Joanne Bionda will travel from Ontario to represent her late husband. The ceremony will take place prior to the game on May 24th. Please note that game time is 7pm to accommodate the travel schedule of the Nanaimo Timbermen.

Entering his 6th WLA season, “Iggy” continues to be himself one of the ‘Bellies most exciting players. His blend of skill, tough competitiveness, and leadership brings fans of both the ‘Bellies and Colorado (NLL) out of their seats. This introverted and sensitive Miami Dolphins fan only talks when breathing.
‘Bellies’ captain is a natural leader and lion-hearted competitor; his fierce defending and two-way play brings instant respect of his peers.” Cobra” Speaks five languages and is a noted poet in his family’s home country of Serbia. Voted “Person Most Likely to beat Milan in Arm Wrestling” by his Uncle Zuban at the annual family reunion picnic.
The first of four brothers drafted by the ‘Bellies and the last to play, this former professional hockey player is returning to his first love in sports. A fierce competitor and talented defender is welcome addition to the team. The rumour he has two big toes on his left foot is not true.

New Westminster SALMONBELLIES
The Gajics unite!
respectively. They’ve each carved their own special place in the line-up and in the dressing room. Nenad has even been sporting the captain’s “C” for the past ﬁve seasons.
by Carly Rigby Call Dan Richardson a collector if you will. Over the last seven years, the New Westminster Senior Salmonbellies’ President and General Manager has been both patient and has gone to great lengths to bring together four unique pieces he considers key to the club’s 2012 success. While they are of varying sizes, shapes and experiences, they do share one common denominator and it is their name: Gajic. The four brothers, Milan, Nenad, Ilija and Alex, listed in order of birth, have all established reputations in the lacrosse world. As products of the Burnaby Lakers’ minor system, each of them has their name on a Minto Cup and in the case of the eldest three, on two. After ﬁnishing up their successful junior careers, Nenad, Ilija and Alex continued to pursue lacrosse as their sport of choice. Milan, however, chose to chase his hockey dreams. He was drafted by the NHL’s Atlanta Thrashers in 2001 and played college hockey at the University of Michigan through 2005. Nenad and Ilija both came to the Salmonbellies’ organization without incident, drafted by the club in 2005 and 2007
Alex’s journey to the team didn’t come so easily. After being drafted ﬁrst overall in the 2009 WLA Draft of Graduating Juniors by the Langley Thunder, he sat out the season waiting for a way to get to New Westminster to play with his brothers. Finally, that day came more than a year later when the two teams came to an agreement on a trade. To bring Alex to the Royal City, the Bellies’ sent the playing rights to Athan Ianucci just hours before the 2010 trade deadline. Alex shone that year, scoring 17 points in ﬁve regular season games and 61 points in 15 play-off games including that year’s Mann Cup in Peterborough, Ontario. After a few stints playing hockey around North America and in Norway, Milan made a return to the sport to which his brothers had devoted their attention. Shortly after trying out with the Washington Stealth of the National Lacrosse League, the Bellies were quick to follow suit and sign the 30-year old. With the acquisition of Milan this past January, Richardson’s foursome was complete. Never before have all four brothers been listed on the same roster. While Nenad, Ilija and Alex all played with the Colorado Mammoth of the NLL at one point, only the two youngest are left as players in that league. Each known for their explosive play in their respective ends: Ilija and Alex on offense and Milan and Nenad on defense, fans can certainly look forward to seeing something special when they each or perhaps sometimes all take to the ﬂoor.
Membership has its beneﬁts
Early in May, the New Westminster Salmonbellies hosted their third annual season ticket holders’ party. The event is designed to celebrate the support of the community while reserving seats and delivering tickets to their rightful owners. As fans young and old wandered Queen’s Park Arena, reconnected with the familiar faces of their summertime friends and mingled with the players, the club’s volunteer staff shufﬂed busily around refreshing cups of coffee and plates of cookies, ushering new season ticket holders in identifying their location and handing out limited
edition prints produced exclusively for season ticket holders.
Season ticket sales have grown for the third consecutive year. With less than two weeks until the Bellies’ season opener, sales have already increased nearly twenty per cent from what they were at the start of the 2011 season. While that success may be attributed to the product the club is putting on the ﬂoor or the growth of the game itself, it may also have something to do with the beneﬁts associated being a season ticket holder.
Outside of the preseason party, the admission to every game, the reserved seating and the special gift, the team also puts on a game day event to celebrate the season ticket holders. That date usually occurs later in the season and includes many door prizes for which only season ticket holders are eligible.
If you haven’t bought your season tickets already, visit www.salmonbellies.com to get some today. The season opener is at home on May 24th vs. the Nanaimo Timbermen. Game time is at 7pm.

Be mindful of the pace of every day HEALTHWISE
DR. DAVIDICUS WONG
here are infinite sources of stress in our days: the competing demands of home, work or school; conflicts with others; illness, injury and addiction; financial stress and debt; suffering from the past, worries about the future; mean bosses, bullies and angry customers. But we often neglect one source over which we have some control – the pace of the day. Emergency physicians and family doctors are no strangers to demanding, high-intensity workdays. In a typical shift, they may not have time to eat or even go to the washroom. Fortunately for their patients, they do take the time to wash their hands. The constant pressure to keep up with a never-ending queue can create sufficient mental and physical stress to affect the quality of our work. Employees in downsized offices, taking on the workload of laid off colleagues can face burnout from the ever-growing mountains on their desktops. And let’s not forget the mothers and fathers of young children. Their only downtime is when their
kids are finally sleeping. There is a tempo and rhythm at which we function best. We need just enough challenge to keep growing, moving forward and experiencing the satisfaction of accomplishment. Without such positive stress, we would be stagnant, bored and unproductive. But too rapid a pace – when the demands of work exceed our capacity to meet them – can lead to physical stress, anxiety, burnout and depression. And if we are acting faster than we can think, we are bound to make mistakes. Quality and productivity suffer. Our sense of well-being suffers. How can you tell if the pace of the day is right for you? If you’re bored, you could use more challenge, and you need to pick up the pace. If you’re mentally and physically exhausted at the end of the day, your pace and workload are overwhelming. If you lose your focus or feel restless at different points in the day, you may need a break. We can get so accustomed to a fast pace that we may never think about slowing down in order to do things right. We can run a treadmill for five or more days of the week and long for our brief weekends and distant holidays. I think weekends and holidays are great for spending extended time with the people you love. Yet we shouldn’t wait that long to find balance and rest in our lives. To prevent the cumulative
effects of unremitting stress, we need to balance each day. We can’t wait for the weekends. We need our morning recess, lunch and midafternoon breaks. It doesn’t have to be a game of tetherball or a full-scale walkout. A change of tasks, a healthy snack, your favourite music or a stretching break may suffice. Our bodies are machines that need fuel throughout the day. To keep our bodies and minds running smoothly, we need daily exercise (at least a good walk) and regular healthy meals. Attend to the pace of your thoughts – with the goal of being fully present in every waking moment. I encourage medical students to be mindful with each patient encounter so that we may be totally focused on the needs of the patient before us. I teach them to view hand washing as a mindful ritual; in this transition between patients, we ensure that we have been thorough with the patient we have just seen and fully awake for the next. This makes us more empathic listeners, better diagnosticians and safer health-care providers. How is the pace of your day? How present are you in the moments that make up your life?

MAY IS CNIB VISION HEALTH MONTH
Seeing beyond vision loss BY TAMARA TEDESCO
“How are you going to be able to do this? How are you going to be able to bath a baby?” Those were some of the questions Shea Anker’s parents asked when she told them she was starting a family just over 10 years ago.
That’s because she’s been blind all her life.
When the school day’s done, Shea returns home and makes dinner. With the help of specialty kitchen gadgets, she makes everything from chocolate chip cookies to spaghetti to stew.
It’s small adaptations like this, she says, that allow her to run a smooth household and get everything done in a day, and she’s learned a lot of them from CNIB. In British Columbia, less than 10 per cent of funding comes from provincial government sources, and CNIB relies on charitable donations to provide services at no cost to people who are blind or partially sighted. To make a donation or learn more about how you can support CNIB programs and services in B.C., visit cnib.ca or call the toll-free CNIB Helpline at 1-800-563-2642.
Then it’s time for homework. First she does her own – using a computer with special software that reads aloud what is on the screen – then she helps the boys with theirs.
As a youth, Shea came to CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind) a charity that provides support to Canadians who are blind or partially sighted. There, CNIB specialists taught her to read braille and to walk using a white cane, and her parents received valuable guidance on how to best support their daughter as she grew up without vision.
She says that, at times, the visual part of the boys’ homework makes it challenging for her to help them if they get stuck. But she always ﬁnds a strategy around it.
Now a single mother with two boys, 9 and 10, the challenges of motherhood are a bit different for Shea than for most parents.
When preparing for spelling tests, for example, she receives the word lists from teachers by email ahead of time. Then her computer reads the words to her so she can do practice tests with the boys.

vision health HE
Then 31, Shea faced many questions like these from the people in her life – people who knew she was responsible, caring and attentive enough to be a great mom, but who also knew it may be tough for her to raise a baby.
Shea starts her day like many others, up at the crack of dawn getting ready for the day. After preparing breakfast and lunches she sends her boys to school, and then goes to school herself. She’s in her third year of a major in English and history at the University of Northern British Columbia.
During Vision Health Month, CNIB is challenging British Columbians to take care of their eyes so that we can eliminate avoidable sight loss.
Blind woman thrives as mother and student

Keeping tradition alive OUR PAST
ARCHIE & DALE MILLER
raditions add a great deal to a community’s culture, history, colour, overall character and heritage. In New Westminster, one of these traditions – arguably the loudest – is the annual salute to the sovereign by the Ancient and Honourable Hyack Anvil Battery. Tracing its roots to the late 1800s, the Battery is carefully piecing together its history that includes a long roll of dedicated members, a very interesting list of persons “receiving” a salute, instances of special salutes, sites of these salutes in the town (and elsewhere on rare occasion), and many other points of community and group interest. Work on the story of this Royal City tradition has been ongoing for some time, but the list of topics still to be researched is getting shorter and shorter. One aspect of this story
has to do with royal jubilees such as the Diamond Jubilee in 2012 for Queen Elizabeth II. Coming up on Victoria Day, May 21, 2012, the Battery will fire, as is its tradition, a 21-“gun” anvil salute to the memory of Queen Victoria and to the current monarch. As part of this salute, the Battery will take great pride in dedicating a special shot to Her Majesty in this, her very special year. In 2002, the Battery fired in honour of Queen Elizabeth’s Golden Jubilee at a very well-attended Victoria Day. Looking back a bit further, to the 1800s and Queen Victoria’s jubilees, the Battery was certainly involved. In 1897, the local British Columbian newspaper reported on the Battery’s involvement in the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. “The chief event in the city was the firing of the customary anvil salute, which is now one of the recognized institutions of the city. Punctually at high noon, this royal salute of twenty-one guns was fired, on Douglas Street, opposite the machine and blacksmith shop of Alderman T. Ovens, which worthy sup-
plied the heavy ordinance and ammunition.” A note for those readers new to the city: “Douglas Street” is now called Eighth Street and the “heavy ordinance and ammunition” are anvils and gunpowder. A decade earlier, in 1887 and Queen Victoria’s 50th Jubilee, a galvanizing event for the Battery took place. Officials in Victoria had ruled that the cannons in New Westminster were not to fire a salute because the salute would be fired in the capital. A group of citizens in the Royal City were not about to accept that decree, so “Chief Bonson and a crowd of loyal citizens got possession of an anvil, and with twentyone rounds they waked the echoes far beyond the Fraser.” We would love to see you at the Victoria Day salute in Queen’s Park Stadium. It’s happening Monday, May 21, beginning with a few speeches about 11:45 a.m., followed by the salute of “21 guns” starting at noon “punctually.” Tradition, history, culture and a wonderful royal anniversary.

Check out the Uptown Live festival email@example.com
ollowing the Hyack Festival parade on Saturday, May 26, the streets of New Westminster will be alive with music, food and lots of entertainment for the whole family. The City of New Westminster is joining in the giant block party. This year, instead of visiting New Westminster City Hall for the annual open house, find us uptown at the corner of Sixth Street and Princess Street. Several city departments, including the library, will be there. There will be city vehicles galore, including a backhoe, a dump truck, a garbage truck and the animal services vehicle from engineering. Emergency
services will have their command vehicle, and there will be an electrical truck, a new fire engine and the alltime favourite, a Zamboni. Kids of all ages (even grownup kids) can enjoy exploring the trucks. Then stop by the city tents. Parks, recreation and culture invites kids to make a craft about the trucks and have their face painted. At the library tent, make a craft and find out about the Summer Reading Club. It’s also an excellent opportunity for everyone to learn more about ereaders and how to borrow free ebooks from the library. The Uptown Live Festival, which is presented by Westminster Centre and the Royal City Centre, will run four live music stages from 1 to 5

CONTROL WEIGHT = CONTROL BLOOD SUGAR 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. #40 ! Working in a health 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.

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.

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.

Whitecap boys to Danone west cup Wings
rookie named all-pro
BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR email@example.com
Three of the Vancouver Whitecaps FC newest residency players want to bring the Danone Cup back out west. Burnaby’s Filip Rakic and Alessandro Hojabrpour, and Niko Papakyriakopoulos of New Westminster are three young Whitecaps named to the B.C. contingent of Team West to the Danone Cup national championship to be held in Toronto this summer. “I’m very versatile. I can play in all positions without struggling, and I enjoy all the positions. I’ve always loved (soccer),” said Niko, an 11-year-old Glenbrook Middle School Grade 6 student. Filip, also 11, is equally capable at either end of the pitch. “I can play any position, including goaltender,” said the Grade 6 Marlborough Elementary student. “As long as I am playing, I’m happy.” Alessandro, 12, has played soccer since the age of four, beginning as a striker, but now is more at home making plays at the centre-midfield position. “(The Danone Cup) is a big honour – huge, because you are representing the whole country in the west, and it’s not just a team – it’s the whole country,” said Alessandro, who already has developed some real chemistry with Filip in the short time they have been with the ’Caps. “I remember I would cross (the ball) and he would always get on the ball,” said Filip. “Yeah, I scored a header,” replied Alessandro. The three local boys were shortlisted from

Lucky boys: From left, Alessandro Hojabrpour, Niko Papakyriakopoulos and Filip Rakic will be respresenting Burnaby and New Westminster on both the Vancouver Whitecaps FC and on the Danone Cup west team. approximately 500 youngsters who took part in the initial Danone Cup tryouts at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-West. More than 30 kids were invited for further scrutiny in mid-April before the final selection was made. The boys dealt with the pressure of waiting in different ways. Niko’s father Kostas met him after school holding a Danone refreshment in his hand in answer to the burning question that was occupying his son’s mind. Filip slept the night
beforetheonlineannouncement in his Danone shirt. He woke up repeatedly, pestering his parents with the question, “Have you got the email yet?” Alessandro also had a hard time putting the final announcement out of his mind. “I had a buddy at school who tried out, too, and he kept reminding me. Oh, the Danone is going to say who made it in 10 minutes, nine minutes, eight minutes. I couldn’t stop thinking about it after that,” Alessandro said. All three have shown
a passion for the beautiful game since they can remember. Niko started playing in the Royal City, but began playing a year up with Coquitlam Metro-Ford as a nine-year-old. Filip, wanted so much to play soccer football that he had to join the New Westminster Tigers soccer academy at the age of five to get his start. “I like playing (soccer). I have a picture when I was one-year-old and I had a soccer ball,” he said. “When I play, I feel different. I don’t know how to
say it. I’m happy.” Alessandro groomed his game at ICSF before moving up to the highperformance league and Metro-Ford. The boys are all accomplished individuals off the pitch as well. Niko is fluent in Greek and plays classical guitar and he will soon test for his black belt in karate. He is also B-plus student in school. Filip is accomplished in the arts and with digital technology, while ◗Danone Page 31

Columbus no match for Surrey U in cup ﬁnal BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
Three first-half goals took much of the wind from the sails of Columbus FC in the B.C. Soccer women’s A cup final. Surrey United scored early and often in the opening half to win its ninth consecutive provincial title following a 3-0 victory over Columbus at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-West on Saturday. “Our heart was there and our fight was there, but our execution … yeah, it was a tough game,” said Columbus defender Lindsay Sadgrove, a Burnaby North grad, following the club’s silver-medal finish. Columbus was put under pressure from the opening kickoff, hemmed into its
half of the field for prolonged spells by the superior midfield play from Surrey, which was recently named Sport B.C.’s 2011 team of the year. New Westminster keeper Cassie Newbrook-Young was forced to make an early stop on goal, and finally surrendered the first tally of the match at 15 minutes when Arianne Adams made Columbus pay for failing to clear out of its own zone. Moments later, Kristen Vanderpauw had perhaps the best chance of all for Columbus to score, challenging United keeper Devon Wharf on a 50/50 ball, but the impact sent the ball spinning off in another direction and out of harm’s way. Five minutes later, Surrey went up
2-0 on a corner by captain Kate Qually, whose in-swinging kick appeared to go in untouched to the far post. Former national team player and game MVP Katie Thorlackson got Surrey’s final goal in the 40th minute, starting the play to teammate Nicole Stewart and then blasting the return pass into the top corner of the goal, and giving Newbrook-Young no chance on the well-taken volley. Chantelle Maivs had the best chance by Columbus in the second half to break the shutout. Although outclassed in the match, Sadgrove said the future continues to look bright for the former Burnaby Girls Canadians club team. “From here it’s just a building thing
– working together,” Sadgrove said. “I think the girls are wonderful, but it was a tough one today.” In the men’s A Cup final, five Burnaby products helped Surrey United Firefighters defeat the Delta United Hurricanes 3-2 in the provincial final. Colin Streckmann, Steve Kindel, Liam Miller, Andrew Proctor and goalie Andrew Fink all shared in Surrey’s win. Kindel set up Surrey’s second goal of the game on a well-executed free kick in the 20th minute. The former Vancouver Whitecaps’ set piece was headed into the top corner of the goal by player of the game Steve McAuley. Jeff Clarke was in on the other two Surrey goals, including the game-winner.

’Bellies rise to the top BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR email@example.com
The New Westminster Salmonbellies rose to the top of the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League following an 8-4 win over the Langley Thunder at Queen’s Park Arena on Tuesday. The junior ’Bellies currently share the lead with the Coquitlam Adanacs, both with four wins. First-year forward Steve Ferdinandi led the way for New West with a fourpoint game, including his first-ever junior A hat trick. But it was the goals the team didn’t score that made the outcome closer than it should have been. “We played like for 10 minutes and then crashed for 10 minutes, and then in the third period we took some stupid penalties,” said Ferdinandi, who has seven goals in his first four games with
the ’Bellies and a sizzling 43.75 per cent shooting average. Ferdinandi’s second goal of the game sparked a three-goal scoring binge in a one-minute span in the middle frame for the home team. But before the period was out Langley cut the lead in half and were unlucky to have a breakaway goal called back on a crease violation later in the period. “We just got going and then we couldn’t put them away. It is like we couldn’t play a full period,” Ferdinandi added. New York product Josh Becker had a productive debut for the junior Salmonbellies, scoring two times, including his second of the game to start the third period from Lake Erie College teammate Reagan Harding. The Salmonbellies next game is against the Port Coquitlam Saints at Queen’s Park Arena on May 22 at 8 p.m.
Danone: National cup winner to Poland ◗ continued from page 30
Alessandro has reached the level of third grade in piano. But for now, it’s all about soccer and fulfilling those dreams – both short and long term. Niko said being a member of the Whitecaps FC program is all about getting better as a player.
“I feel very proud and happy wearing it (a Whitecaps jersey) – like a professional.” “My desire is always to be a player in Barcelona,” said Filip. “I want to just be a soccer player and play for a national team,” added Alessandro. But before those dreams
can be fully answered, there is a more pressing competition looming, and that is the national Danone Cup. The winner of the Danone national final will move on to the world final in Poland later this fall. “We’re going to go for sure,” Alessandro said. – tberridge/The Record

Hyacks spring into ﬂag football The Royal City Hyacks had a winning weekend at the third spring flag football jamboree of the Vancouver Mainland Football League season. The two under-16 New Westminster club teams posted three wins at the event held at Mercer Stadium last Saturday. The u-16 team coached by Brandon Braich went 3-1 behind the solid quarterbacking of Mackenzie Ratcliffe. Cornerbacks Adrian and Brian Cagampan were keys in the defensive secondary for
the Hyacks, both with interceptions. Brent Fletcher’s u-16 team had a 3-2 record. Jamie Shiho and Jeff Lugtu, who both played on the Hyacks junior bantam team that went undefeated last season, were standouts on Fletcher’s squad. New Westminster also fielded teams in the u-10, u-12 and u-14 age divisions. The format is five-a-side with all players as eligible receivers, played on a small field 25 yards wide and 50 yards long.

A good person going to hell !! I COULD BE WRONG ! www.heaven-or-hell.ca
WELCH, Taffy Aug 20, 1946 - May 10, 2012 Taffy passed away peacefully surrounded by his family. Born in Cornwall England, he came to BC as a herdsman in 1976. In 1980 he started at Dairyland, working there until his retirement in 2011. Taffy had a true passion for soccer - playing himself, watching his children play and coaching. His favorite team was Arsenal (getting up at 4:30am to watch a game!) followed closely by the Whitecaps. He loved camping with his family and sitting around the campfire. He had a keen sense of humour that never wavered and loved a good fart joke. Taffy will be greatly missed by his wife Jill, his children Nyron (Veronique), Alan, Ian (April), Kate (Dallas), Lindsey (Thomas), all his wonderful grandchildren, brothers Dennis (Liz) and Michael (Lynne) and his extended family and many friends. A celebration of his life to be held at a later date.
SPROULE, Lyle Orville
October 10, 1932 - May 7, 2012 Lyle passed away peacefully in the loving arms of his devoted wife Rita and in the presence of their children Brian, Julie, and Don. He will be missed by his daughtersin-law, Kerry and Barbara and son-inlaw Len. His brother Larry (Mary), sister Shirley Loop of Kenniwick, Washington and lovingly remembered as “Papa” by his grandchildren, Tim, Kayla, Meaghan, Carmen, Matt, Marcie, Scott, Jeffrey and Patrick, great granddaughter Lola and his nieces and nephews. Lyle’s career spanned 46 years with Spagnol’s Queensborough Store and Spagnol’s Wine and Beer Making Supplies. Lyle was actively involved with St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation, Phoenix Food and Drug Group, a member of the Vancouver Golf Club and a long time supporter of The New Westminster Italian Mutual Aid Society. His generosity, kindness and humour will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Special thanks to Dr. P. O’Connor, Dr. K. Miki, his dedicated caregiver Iris, The Queens Park Adult Day Program and all who cared for him at Royal Columbian Hospital. A Celebration of Life will be held, Thursday, May 24th, at 12 noon at the Vancouver Golf Club, 771 Austin Avenue, Coquitlam, B.C. Donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of B.C., B.C.

(E.g., think twice before making that threatening call to your local politician.) Now to August, communications could lead to a) money and/or b) a relationship solution (or a new one) (in either case, it will develop slowly). Be cautious all Wednesday. Saturday’s romantic. Taurus April 20-May 20: The month ahead accents money, spending, selling, earning – and possessions of all kinds, including memories and relationships. Very good luck imbues this area now through early August. Another wave of even bigger luck hits your money pocket mid-June through mid2013. You’re going to be happy! BUT – until Aug. 30, a trap can be disguised as good luck, so proceed carefully. Do not violate your principles and morals in dollar pursuits. Money’s great after 3 p.m. PDT Monday, and Tuesday. Be cautious when driving, talking Wednesday to Friday. Home, food, nature please you, Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: A long, dark night is almost over. It’s been 16 years since your relationships started (from your point of view) rejecting, eluding and opposing you. This reached a peak in 2011/12, as karmic repayment was enforced by the cosmos. It’s not all over yet – and won’t be until Aug. 31 frees you from karma’s grip. But even now, you have begun to mellow and smile. Others are ﬁnding you attractive. By June, you enter one of the luckiest years of your life (though it’s better after August). The future’s bright! Your energy, charisma soar early week. Buy nothing Wednesday. Friends, Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Take a well-deserved rest during the four weeks ahead. Look for success in charitable, spiritual, governmental, institutional zones, and in warehouses, assembly lines. Think and act alone – but after you seek advice, ﬁnd and/or utilize an agent, or enter counselling. Management, administration and delegation of tasks will arise naturally. These themes not only arise during the month ahead, they also contain your best luck for 13 months ahead. However, don’t make any irrevocable commitments (to these zones) before September: be alert, reject temptation. Shop Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your popularity rises. Social delights, entertainment, optimism and joie de vivre ﬂow into your life – not only for the month ahead, but until mid-2013. Take care now to Aug. 30, as this same social arena can hold disappointment or traps if you’re tempted to take advantage. E.g., don’t abandon a lover in order to play the ﬁeld. Until August, a wish might come true in career or travel zones. From June onward (best after August) a big life wish might come true in romantic, creative, child-oriented or pleasure areas. Joy arrives early week. Caution Wednesday. You soar Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The month and year ahead (13 months) powerfully and beneﬁcially emphasize your career, prestige, relations with higher-ups, and your standing in the community. It’s a complex inﬂuence, so be careful now to the end of August. Higher-ups favour you, but you might be tempted to push for too much, too soon – DON’T do anything underhanded to get ahead. You’d create a dead-end. If you meet headwinds, simply wait until September onward. Many Virgos will receive a promotion before mid-2013. Early week, ambitions. Wednesday/Thursday, social joys, barriers. Retreat, rest and plan Saturday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of legal, intellectual, far travel, cultural, educational and love themes begins now. There have been many pitfalls for you in these areas for the last 13 months – and more exist, until Aug. 30. Yet these zones are growing luckier and luckier – by now, as long as you don’t push things, you’ll probably just slide past those pits (of temptation, resentful action, etc.). By June, a major massive luck enters these zones, to last through June 2013. But remember, it’s way better after August. Sunday eve to Tuesday emphasizes these areas. Be careful with career, VIPs midweek. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: A month of mystery, changes, commitments, high finance, others’ finances, subconscious promptings and sexual desire begins Sunday. This whole arena has obstructed, delayed and potentially even trapped you over the last 13 months, and it continues this way (though weakly) until the end of August. However, sweet, affectionate vibes have also entered (in April) and support you to August. In June, an even greater luck enters, to last into mid-2013. All’s best after August. If there’s been a divorce, now the “asset wrangling” begins. Early week highlights all this. Caution Wednesday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The 13 months ahead emphasize relationships, opportunities and challenges, relocation, dealings with the public, fame, contracts, negotiations, competition and possible litigation. You might marry, if single; or divorce, if unhappily attached. In all, success, luck and joy come through others – so be eager, a joiner, diplomatic. “Relating” contains pitfalls through August – don’t fall for temptation, skulduggery, or the promise of easy rewards. Proceed carefully. (After August, the luck’s good, pure!) Monday/Tuesday hold clues. DON’T invest Wednesday: protect health.

May 20 - 26, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The week, month and year ahead hold an increase in chores, duties and your employment (or employer) role. Protect your health now to June 2013. (Thighs, hips, lungs, elbows, wrists are vulnerable.) Don’t over-focus on these areas before September – pitfalls exist. (E.g., don’t overdo vitamins; don’t dabble in chores as an excuse to avoid meetings or social environments.) After August, you can luckily plunge into big jobs. Luckily, because you’ll be compensated accordingly. Early week provides clues. Be alert Wednesday: relationships need care! Lucky secrets revealed Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A month of romance, of creative and speculative surges, pleasure, beauty, and fun with kids, begins now. This trend is mixed – good luck, difﬁcult karma – now through August. (E.g., I landed my lover; didn’t realize that he was wanted by every taxman in North America.) Afterward, to June 2013, the inﬂuence is purely lucky. So you might want to wait (especially if you were born Jan. 20-25, any year). Your sexual side remains “intense” until July. Monday/Tuesday are romantic. Midweek needs caution with chores, machines, health. Exciting meetings, opportunities Saturday! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The month ahead emphasizes family, property, security, nature, nutrition, stomach, breasts, soul and retirement. These zones are blessed with affection, forgiveness, prosperity and “prestige buoyancy” now to mid-2013.You could move to a better neighbourhood. But until Aug. 30, a skein of traps and dead-ends (though often “pleasant” ones) spreads through this whole area. So be cautious until September. Clues exist Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings romantic notions. Careful Wednesday: (self?) deception, unpredictability and refusal reign. Chores, machinery are lucky Saturday. firstname.lastname@example.org • Reading: 604-727-3673
