INSIDE: City administrator calls it quits P11
◗ TEACHER KEEPS THE SHOW GOING
33 years and counting ...
or more than 30 years, a Lord Kelvin Elementary teacher has been bringing the spirit of the season to the school’s stage. Barb Paul has given her time and passion to the school’s holiday play, which is so popular that most students clamor to be a part of it. Even last year, when the teachers pulled back on extra-curricular duties as a part of job action, Paul made sure the show went on. “I had a hard time not doing it, she says, adding, “I didn’t want to let the NIKI HOPE kids down.” At the time, Paul sent out an email to her colleagues at the school, asking them to anonymously share their opinions about her continuing with the play during job action. “It was unanimous, every single staff member said ‘Go ahead, I’ll volunteer my time,’” she says. “Although I was afraid to ask, I was so happy when everyone was on the same page. The staff was amazing, very supportive. I have a team of staff come in and help me.” For the last 33 years – minus only the two years she was on maternity leave – Paul has organized the school’s Christmas play. She put it on one year when she was on crutches

District still needs to find $76,000 to cut
BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER
The New Westminster school district is “turning up every couch cushion” to find funds to help get it through this year, but the options presented to the board of education Tuesday night came up $76,000 short to help meet its goal to cut $2.2-million
from this year’s budget. Trustee MaryAnn Mortensen was disappointed with the lack of information district staff provided trustees and the public at the meeting. “I don’t think we can make a decision on what to cut without information,” MaryAnn Mortensen told The Record. “We are still $76,000 in the glue if we go with the shopping list they provided us, and I don’t think the ministry would accept us presenting another deficit.” At the meeting, Mortensen suggested the district consider putting money aside

in the future. “I’m a fan of contingency funds,” said Mortensen. “I’m not a fan of putting everyone through turmoil every few years. We need to look at how we have been doing things, and we need to do them better.” Mortensen asked secretary-treasurer Brian Sommerfeldt for budgeted figures for the costs, actual figures and the variances for this year’s budget. The exchange turned prickly. “I don’t want to answer that off the top of my head,” Sommerfeldt said, adding, “it’s late, and I’m tired.

“We are not resourced to turn that amount of detail around in a week,” he said. “There’s not enough staff.” Mortensen said she’d been asking for the information since September. Trustee Lisa Graham echoed Mortensen, saying she also needed more information. Roughly 10 parents and about six union members, including the New Westminster Teachers’ Union president and the local CUPE president, turned up at the school board committee meeting to discuss ways

City groups in need of a helping hand T
he need for support continues to grow – both for individuals in need and non-profit community organizations that help on numerous fronts. We’re continuing with The Record’s annual Guide to Giving, which helps readers decide where they may want to donate, whether it’s a few dollars, some time or some items on a wish list. This is the second installment of the 16th annual Guide to Giving, which kicked off in the Dec. 12 issue.
Helping the arts: Carolyn McLaughlin, a volunteer with the Arts Council of New Westminster, displays some of the items currently available in the Treasure Room. The annual sale is one way the non-proﬁt organization raises the money it uses to put on events in the community throughout the year.
Arts Council of New Westminster The Arts Council of New Westminster has been advocating on behalf of the arts in the Royal City since 1967. A non-profit organization, the arts council is in need of items to hold events throughout the year. “Our tents and signs are all last century,” said Rick Carswell, president of the arts council. “We do our outreach – Arts in the Park, Arts to Go. We had over 20 different events we did this year in the community. Those tents are falling apart.” Financial donations to replace the aging tents and signs would be greatly appreciated, as would signs and banners from a business offering those services. Carswell said the New Westminster Arts Council is working on plans for next year’s events, which will include a music festival in the spring and a “beautiful music in beautiful spaces” event in the fall. Volunteers are needed for these and other events that the arts council offers in the community, as well as docents who would lead tours of the art gallery. People can also support the arts council – and local artists – through the 27th annual Treasure Room that’s being held in the arts council gallery in Centennial Lodge in Queen’s Park. Open Tuesday to Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m., the gallery features oneof-a-kind, handcrafted gifts such as jewelry, raku, pottery, scarves, woven shawls, tree ornaments, Victorian inspired decorations, books by local authors and more. Anyone interested in helping the Arts Council of New Westminster can call 604525-3244.
Family Services of Greater Vancouver Family Services of Greater Vancouver stepped in to fill a void in the community’s Christmas offerings and never looked back. When the adopt-a-family program in New Westminster was at risk of being discontinued, family services stepped up to the plate and offered to oversee the program. “Playing Santa Claus is fun,” said Patrician Steiner, coordinator of commu-

nity education and development services. The program matches families in need with sponsors who buy food and gifts for those families. In addition to the 60 families registered for the program, family services has received enough support to offer hampers to an additional 30 families who were on the waiting list. New Westminster residents still have a chance to support the adopt-afamily program. At this point, cash donations and gift cards would be much appreciated, as they would allow family services to provide a little something for the 35 or so families who remain on the waiting list. “We haven’t made any commitment to them,” Steiner said. “It’s a nice surprise when we phone and say we have something.” In addition to the families who are already on the waiting list, family services is still getting inquiries from social workers and others who know of people in need. Family Services of Greater Vancouver is pleased that it was able to continue offering the adopt-a-family program in New Westminster. “It brought a real spirit and joy,” Steiner said. “Yes, it’s work coordinating and matching donors. It’s been so nice – you get to be part of the good side of things.” Year-round, Family Services of Greater Vancouver appreciates donations of cash
and gift cards, which help people involved in its programs. Volunteers are always needed, particularly for ESL and parenting programs. For more information, call Family Services of Greater Vancouver at 604-5259144.
The New Westminster food bank won’t be distributing any more food until the new year, but it will be accepting donations that help a growing number of people in the Royal City. Each week, more than 700 people visit the New Westminster food bank, which is one of about 18 distribution centres and 100-mealproviding agencies associated with the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. The New Westminster depot distributes food once a week to folks in need. Anyone wishing to donate cash or nonperishables to the food bank is welcome to drop by the local depot from Dec. 17 to 21 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. The food bank welcomes donations of nonperishable food items such as canned fish, canned meat, peanut butter, pasta, pasta sauces, soups, rice, baby food and diapers. As always, cash donations are greatly appreciated because they allow the food bank to purchase three times as much food as individuals would be able to buy on
their own. New Westminster residents can also support the food bank by purchasing $5 food hampers at local Safeway stores, or placing donations in food bins at Safeway stores in New Westminster. Funds donated to the local food bank are forwarded to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society, which then provides food to its food banks. Donations can be dropped off at the food bank at 1111 Sixth Ave. For more information or to donate, call 604-525-9628.
Lookout Emergency Aid Society The Lookout Emergency Aid Society’s Christmas wish list includes some practical items – and maybe a few treats, too. The society provides services for homeless people or individuals who are at risk of homelessness in New Westminster, Burnaby, Vancouver and the North Shore. In New Westminster, Lookout operates the Cliff Block (23 beds), the Russell Residence (40 transitional beds and 15 emergency shelter beds), the Rhoda Kaellis residence (24 transitional beds). This year also marks the first year the Lookout Emergency Aid Society has operated the extreme weather shelter, which aims to reduce the risk of illness, injury and death on nights of extreme weather conditions. “It’s the same for us this year – it’s warm clothing, said Dave Brown, ◗Guide Page 4

Locally, trees have been set up at London Drugs (555 Sixth St.), Thrifty Foods (270 East Columbia St.), Your Dollar Store With More (811 Carnarvon St.) and London Drugs (7280 Market Crossing in Burnaby). If people would prefer, they can help local seniors by dropping off a gift or gift card, or food donations at the society’s office at 750 Carnarvon St. In addition to donations, the Seniors Services Society always welcomes volunteers for its various programs. The society has been selected as the lead agency to run a new pilot program, Better at Home. In addition to its existing services, the society also needs volunteers to help with light housekeeping (mainly cleaning) and non-medical transportation for this new program that it will be undertaking in the new year. To help the Seniors Services Society, call 604-520-6621. For more information about the Santa for Seniors program, visit www. beasantatoasenior.com.
Seniors Services Society
The Seniors Services Society has set its sights on helping more than 200 seniors this Christmas. The society provides a wide range of services including Meals on Wheels, grocery shopping, support calls and tax clinics to more than 500 seniors. It’s seeking to help local seniors through its annual Santa for Seniors campaign. Trees that have been set up at four locations in the city are decorated with ornaments that contain the names of people who are in need and some gift suggestions. “People pick up the ornament, buy the gift and leave it in the basket under the tree or leave it with the manager or owner of the shop,” said Sanjay Gulati, support services manager. The society will pick up the gifts and deliver them to appreciative seniors before Christmas. “We are targeting 200 people,” said Gulati, adding about 150 people received gifts last year. “There are more people this year. The list is growing.” Priority is given to seniors who are isolated, have low incomes and have no family in the area. For many, this will be the

Janzen: Stafﬁng is the elephant in the room ◗ continued from page 1
to avoid a hefty $2.2-million deficit this year. The district is looking to cut spending through a “condensed consultation process” for this year at the recommendation of Joan Axford, a consultant who came in to review last year’s books after the district discovered an almost $2.8-million surprise deficit. If the district doesn’t cut spending this year, it will face another $2.2-million shortfall, Axford told the board. The district must work fast to look for ways to find capital, but also to recover the deficit from last year. The goal is to ask the Ministry of Education if the district can pay back that shortfall over the course of five years. It will need approval to make such a move. Superintendent John Woudzia did not present any staffing cuts as a way to save money, though trustee Michael Ewen said the board could consider staff cuts. “If we don’t want to go down this road, it might be reasonable to look at staffing,” Ewen said. “If we really want to look at all of the options, then staffing has to be on the table. It’s kind of the elephant in the room
here,” Janzen said. “The message from our consultant was very clear,” said Cook. “We have structural issues.” The options the district administrators presented didn’t go far enough to address structure, he said. “In many ways, we’ve got a broken motor and we’re working on the transmission,” he said. “The message is very clear from the consultant, (it) is, you have a structural problem that you need to address.”
The district spends six per cent more than the average in Metro Vancouver and three per cent more than the province on staffing, Janzen said. The district suggested selling a property on industrial land in Queensborough, charging community groups for using school facilities and looking for a larger contribution from the business company to boost revenue. To cut spending it’s considering not replacing staff, which requires talks with unions, offloading costs for educating
some adult special needs students, reducing May Day spending, cutting back on consultants, eliminating reading conferences, cutting back on field trip spending and not giving out a Welcome to Kindergarten package. The district has already implemented a ban on all unapproved overtime and hiring restrictions.

Mortensen wants more detailed budget info Following her efforts to get more information about the impact of spending cuts and revenue building, trustee MaryAnn Mortensen wants a detailed budget report from staff for the New Westminster school district, which faces a $2.2-million deficit this year. Mortensen wants the board of education to vote on a motion at next Tuesday’s meeting to direct staff to prepare a report for the 2012/13 budget year providing all costs (broken down into individual
line-items) and including revenue. She wants the amount budgeted for the yearto-date, the actual costs and the variance between budgeted and actual year-to-date amounts. She also wants district staff to provide the variance between budget forecast for the year and projected actual costs for the year and a narrative with the reason for the variance, along with measures taken to mitigate the amount of the projected variance.
The information is to be presented to the board in preparation for the Jan. 15, 2013 finance and facilities committee meeting, Mortensen wrote in the motion, which she forwarded to The Record on Thursday. “As discussed at the last committee meeting, and spoken to by most trustees, this information is necessary for the board to be able to make the decisions in order to deal with the 2012/13 deficit,” she wrote in her rationale for the motion.

been content to heckle, bray and thump their desks. This week’s spectacle exchange simply takes the juvenile behaviour to another level. Is it any wonder that citizens are apathetic and cynical about their political leaders? Each time an election rolls around around, we lament the low voter turnout and the lack of community engagement with the political process. But with spectacles like this, it’s no surprise that many Canadians are content to
keep politics at arm’s length. Is it too much to expect adults paid to represent the interests of their constituents to do that in a mature and productive way that doesn’t involve getting up in the other side’s grill or dropping the F-bomb? Following the fracas, interim Liberal leader Bob Rae urged MPs to show a “willingness to engage in public discourse without insulting each other.” What a refreshing – and likely doomed – concept.
Exploring the spirit of the holiday season IN MY OPINION
his year, I participated in a new Christmas donation drive at my high school. A small Christmas tree was set up with paper ornaments on it and was wheeled around to all of the classrooms, and written on each ornament was a Christmas wish from someone in need. Everyone was encouraged to pick an ornament/wish that they could try and fulfill. My classmates and I walked around the tree taking time to read each paper wish. I picked a wish that touched my heart the most, it read: “I am a seven-year-old girl, and I wish for a pink and purple winter jacket.” I remember when I was seven, oblivious to the world outside my fantasy land of Barbie’s, dress-up and princesses. My favourite colours were probably pink and purple, too. After choosing my ornament/ wish, I tucked it away into my wallet for the rest of the day. But the thoughts around that little piece of paper stayed with me. I couldn’t stop wondering about the little girl whose wish I had chosen. Did she go to school? Have
siblings? Did she need any other clothes? I suddenly had the urge to buy an entire new wardrobe for her. Picking the right jacket proved to be difficult. There were a lot more options to choose from than I thought, and jackets have gotten considerably more stylish from when I was seven. In the end, I narrowed it down to two jacket choices, one was down-filled and bright pink with a sparkly collar, the other a more practical dark purple and pink wind-proof with a built-in fleece. As girls we all know that often practical takes a backseat to stylish, but is seven years old too young to start shopping by this motto? This inner discussion left me standing in the store for quite some time, and I could feel the employee’s curious eyes on me, almost hearing their thoughts. Yes, I may be short, but I am not picking this jacket out for myself, thank you very much. Subconsciously I had formed a bond with this girl I knew almost nothing about. I cared so much about whether she would like the jacket. I wanted it to make her feel confident and pretty, yet she also needed to be warm enough to play outside. Eventually I realized the right decision for a child was the more practical dark purple wind-proof jacket. Satisfied finally, I bought it. ◗Giving Page 7
A poem for the premier Dear Editor:
We women don’t care for Christy Crunch. If you don’t know why, you’re out to lunch. We’re millions in debt and taxed to the hilt, no homes for the poor for few have been built. Our hospitals, schools all need repair. And children go hungry – their cupboards are bare. Big bucks to promote you for ads on TV. But cuts to our health care have all sickened me. So wipe off the smile you wear all the time. Dear Christy you’re finished (and so is this rhyme!) Betty Griffin, Burnaby
Grateful for city store Dear Editor:
We must say how truly grateful we are having Bosley’s in New Westminster.
Karima personally provides top quality customer service and clearly loves animals more than people. When we visit the store, our dog, who’s 14 now, gets excited and can’t wait to get inside see Karima. This store is truly “one of a kind” and very, very rare, animal care comes first, when we enter the busy store, our dog is cheerily greeted by name and gets a quick bum rub before even noticing us. We struggled with various ailments that seemed to be draining the life out of our old dog, and sadly thought, “His time was nearing the end.” Then we found the new store at Columbia Square, the staff rallied together with team effort, carefully examined the food ingredients listed that we were giving Zack and made serious changes to his diet. Within two weeks of his new diet plan, he amazingly came to life again, hot spots were healing, energetic, his coat was becoming shiny again. ◗Kudos Page 7

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Kudos for pet store ◗ continued from page 6
They did save our dog’s life, literally. Proven of their care and concern for true animal welfare, we will never go to any other store again. The adoption area is like a little nursery – believe us, the fourlegged cuties get ultimate quality care, along with a lot of playtime and exercise, by the loving staff. Bosley’s New Westminster is like no other store; it has a sincere warm loving team of caring staff that we trust. Karima (the manager) said something one day that brought tears to my eyes: “I will never let an animal go hungry on the street or anywhere else.” There is not an award big enough to show how grateful we are. Mr. and Mrs. Jaser, New Westminster
Still no good answers from school district on issues
The SD40 deficit situation is like a puzzle in a box with no picture on the front. One would have to attend every meeting and read every public document to even begin to try and make sense of how our education dollars are spent. This is a daunting task for the average constituent. I have made repeated requests for financial information that rightly, by law, belongs in the public domain and I have yet to receive any concrete information; it is not enough that trustees make the rules, they have to follow them too. In the face of SD40’s chronic financial crises, too many outstanding district issues remain unanswered. Just one example would be the issues and costs associated with the cemetery and capital projects. To justify the significant expense to the district (we have lost critical, valuable land mass due to the cemetery designation) I asked the vice-chair the following question: what specific role does the district audit committee have in relation to monitoring and oversight of the allocation of capital project funds?
For example, how much SD40 staff time and dollars (in its capacity as cemetery operator) have been spent to date on the New Westminster/provincial/NWSS cemetery, and how has this contributed to our deficit status? As inappropriate as it is for SD40 to be a cemetery operator, when can I expect an answer to my questions? Paul Johansen, New Westminster
Grateful for community of good neighbours Dear Editor:
I have been feeling compelled to write to you to express how thankful I am to have the neighbours I do. We may not all socialize together, many keep to themselves or come and go out the back to the alley where their cars are parked … we get together every so often for block parties, some of us know each other just by a wave and smile. But, when the unthinkable happened on our street, my neighbours were the first to respond and do everything possible to help and be there for support. My next door neighbours, the family beside the house that burned, were heroic in their efforts to help. They called 911 and then did everything possible to try and get access to the house. The young man was a hero in my eyes, I was there and witnessed as he tried several times to get into the house but was continually pushed back by the thick smoke. He was devastated as the events unfolded once the firefighters were on the scene and I really want him to know that we all know he did the very best he could. One neighbour came to say prayers for the victim, others were there to offer hugs and hold hands. Sometimes it takes the very worst to bring out the very best and I know that I would not want to be living anywhere else but on my street. We may not know each other by first name but we have each other’s backs and that is a really comforting thought in good times and in the very worst of times. Danielle Connelly, New Westminster

Giving: Remember the spirit of season ◗ continued from page 6
The next day at school I turned in my gift to the collection room, where it was added to a pile and my name checked off a list. With my job done and the jacket no longer in my possession, I felt as though I had lost something. Over those past couple days, I felt a sense of purpose in completing a task
for someone else. I realize now that it was the feeling of giving. It seems as though we have slowly lost the true holiday spirit over the years. I can honestly say that I have become so consumed by consuming that I forgot what it is to give to others. The holidays are meant to be a time for giving, and spending time with fam-
ily. I’m thankful that all it took was a simple wish on an ornament for me to remember that. I hope this coat will warm her as it did me. Megan Bobetsis is a Grade 12 student at New Westminster Secondary School. She is also interning at the Royal City Record as a part of a work-experience program.

Man dies in house ﬁre BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
A 79-year-old man died after a fire swept through his Alberta Street home. The man had lived for many years in the home at 343 Alberta St., where the fire occurred at about 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 11. Fire Chief Tim Armstrong said crews arrived at the house, saw heavy smoke and fire coming out of the rear of the home and started to attack the home by going in the front door. “Upon trying to gain entry, the captain in charge felt there was something blocking the door. He managed to move it and found an elderly gentleman collapsed behind the door,” he said. “It seemed to be an attempt to exit the building.” Although the man didn’t have any vital signs when firefighters removed him from the building, Armstrong said they performed CPR on him at the site. Advanced life support paramedics also attempted to revive the man, who was transported to Royal Columbian Hospital. “They worked on him at the hospital,” he said. “He succumbed to his injuries.” The cause of death

While one crew worked medically on the man, the other crews extinguished the fire that caused extensive damage to the small bungalow. “It began somewhere in thekitchenarea,”Armstrong said. “I don’t want to lead you to believe it’s cooking related.” Investigators were still determining the cause of the fire at The Record’s press time. “There was a lot of heat in the building, just the intensity of the fire,” Armstrong said.
The man was the lone occupant of the home, which sustained substantial damage. “We talked to some of the neighbours. He is a longtime neighbour on the street,” he said. “As much as he kept to himself, he was social and did chat regularly with the neighbours. Very unfortunate.” Armstrong said the fire department has ordered a critical stress incident debriefing because the fire involved a fatality. He said that’s a step taken when firefighters respond to motor vehicle accidents with multiple deaths, traumatic events involving children or fire deaths.

and another year when she had the flu and had to work with a bucket between her knees. “I do love it all … I enjoy watching the set go up, and seeing them (students) in rehearsal when they start to bloom, and they don’t need to be tied to their script anymore and can start being expressive and get into character. I love watching that development. And when the choir takes off, and they know their stuff and start singing with so much energy,” she says. Paul’s cast size keeps going up and up, and this year it’s the most it’s ever been, she says. She finds a place for anyone who tries out, including students with special needs. “They enjoy it just as much as anybody else, so I make a special part that would suit them. It’s totally inclusive. Anyone that can get up on that stage and audition for me can get a part,” Paul says. The majority of her teaching years have been at Kelvin. She started at the Moody Park school in 1980. In 1981, she did her first play – called Silent Night. When she started the school had fewer students and she would pick and re-write plays that could incorporate the entire school. But by 2000, Kelvin enrolment had ballooned, so her play is now for students in grades 4 to 7. The primary students have their own concert night, Paul says. Paul notes she has some helpful elves on her team. Kelvin’s childcare worker Tara Worth has helped Paul with the drama component for several years. Grade 4 teacher Darryl Schelp painted many backdrops for the play in the past, and Nancy Baird, the school’s kindergarten teacher, has helped sew many costumes. For Paul, her years of putting on the play have been rewarding. She had a particularly emotional experience when a
former Kelvin student who was donating something to the school went to look for her. She told Paul that she had cast her in a play in 1981. “She was new to the school and had a really hard time up until then, and I guess I saw something in her and gave her a pretty big role, and it changed her life she said. “She’s now a stand-up comedian,” Paul says. “And she said that moment someone believed in her, and the experience was life changing. That moment just brought me to tears.” Being in the play has stayed with students in other ways, Paul says. “I’ve had students who are in their 30s now and can still recite their lines,” Paul says. Being in the play also offers learning opportunities. “The kids are doing memorization, ear training and drama skills,” Paul says. “It takes concentration and learning how to sit quietly for an extended period of
time.” Paul is also a member of an award-wining chamber choir called Phoenix Chamber Choir. “It totally fulfills my musical ambitions,” says the second alto. But it also keeps her busy, especially this time of year. “I spend many evenings at the school and often go directly from the school to my choir practices. The rest of the year is not so bad,” she says, explaining her hectic holiday schedule. But it’s all worth it. “I love the school, I love the community, the kids give back more to me than I give to them. They appreciate what they’re being given,” she says. “I can’t imagine working anywhere else. I think my last play will be in 2020. I’ve got nine more years to go. I’m going to stay right till the end, which will be 65.” That means nine more plays for Paul’s lucky Kelvin students.

Mayor says China trip benefits city BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
Education, economic development and culture were among the topics covered during a recent delegation to China. Mayor Wayne Wright, councillors Bill Harper, Jaimie McEvoy and Lorrie Williams, and city legislative services director Rick Page visited five cities during a November business trip to China. A staff report estimated the cost of the trip would be $12,400, which will come out of an international fund established by the city in 2003. The trip included discussions about the China House proposal, which would create an international meeting place in New Westminster. China House is proposed to include meeting rooms, a small showroom and a boutique hotel that visitors could use when doing business in Greater Vancouver. Wright told The Record that New Westminster received a pledge from the mayor of Lijiang that his city wants to be involved with China House. “Now we have to put
our plans together,” he added. “They are waiting to see it.” According to Wright, meetings will be set up in 2013 to further explore the China House concept. During the trip, city officials met with representatives in New Westminster’s sister and friendship cities to discuss business opportunities, which could include the establishment of warehousing facilities for stone rock materials coming from ship from Yunfu for North American markets, and a retail outlet for Chinese companies wanting to showcase their stainless steel. “Everything fits together,” Wright said, noting those people are also interested in the China House concept. “It’s quite a substantial plan.” Wright noted that officials also talked with education representatives about various educational initiatives involving high school, college and police students.

I have always been a believer, I guess, in working at change on a continual basis,” said Daminato, who used the recommendations to guide change. “You keep needing to change things as the environment out there changes, and priorities change, etc.” During his time as city administrator, the city began doing strategic plans to help the city identify its priorities, consider how to fund those priorities and to make progress in some areas. “I think it has been unprecedented growth in the past 10 years,” he said. “Looking back in history, probably the last decade that would have been like that would have been sometime in the

the same as last year, but new people are always accessing its services. “The recession started but we have not seen the recovery yet at the grassroots level,” he said. The twice-weekly drop-in also provides services such as a family resource centre, a drop-in for children run by New Westminster Family Place, a teacher from the school district who tutors adults who are upgrading to Grade 11/12, a free clothing and household goods exchange, refreshments and a variety of community services. “There are certain things that don’t come in very often – work boots, gloves, socks, toques, warm clothing,” McEvoy said. “We need some warm clothing for people and clothing people can wear for work.” Work clothes needed include work boots and clothing that people can wear to job interviews. Financial donations are appreciated as they allow the Hospitality Project to buy much-needed items like homeless kit supplies, tea, milk and sugar. Gift cards are also useful, as are nail clippers and can openers. “We need volunteers, especially volunteers who are available during the day,” McEvoy said. “They would be handing out goods to people, supporting the drop-in. It’s a hodgepodge.” The Hospitality Project is offered at Shiloh-Sixth Avenue United Church Monday to Thursday. Anyone wishing to donate or volunteer can call the Hospitality Project at 604-522-3443.
Royal City Writers is helping to lend a voice to those who may not otherwise have their stories heard. Diane Hayes started the New Westminster-based notfor-profit earlier this year. In October, it launched a pilot project that’s seen volunteers work with residents of the Cliff Block supportive housing program to tell their stories. “We are using storytelling to build connections in New Westminster,” Hayes said. “We are pairing volunteers with experience with people who have a story to tell.” Planning is underway for followup projects, as other organizations have expressed an interest and need to chronicle the stories of their clients. The group would appreciate donations that would help it produce a small chapbook, which would contain a collection of stories. Seed money of $250 to $1,000 would be greatly appreciated, as would donations of transcription services, digital audio recorders, notebooks and workshop space.

ing a new listening system, bath baskets (that residents can use to transport their personal items to the bathing/ shower areas) and a new ice dispenser. “The ice dispensers they use in hospitals are designed for the health-care industry. They disperse soft chewable ice,” said Jaquie Buchanan, the foundation’s executive director. “People, when they are dying, that is what they want.

Colleen McDonald, who coordinates the gift shop, has tried to fill the little store inside the centre’s lobby with all sorts of items that would appeal to hospital staff, visitors and residents alike.

The facility’s annual wish list includes bathing tubs, wheelchairs, electric beds and blanket warmers. Funds are currently being raised to buy items includ-

Citizen of the Year: Farhan Lalji relaxed at home with wife Mary after being named New Westminster’s Citizen of the Year.
Lalji named for award firstname.lastname@example.org
Third time is a charm for Farhan Lalji. Lalji, who resurrected the New Westminster Hyacks football program in 2003, has been named as New Westminster’s Citizen of the Year. “It’s nice,” he said about the recognition. “It’s the third time I have been nominated for this award.” The Citizen of the Year Award was one of a number of awards given out at the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce’s Platinum Awards celebration on Nov. 15. Lalji said the award reflects the efforts of a team of people involved with the Hyacks football program. He said he and Chad Oatway, a teacher at New Westminster Secondary School and head coach of the juvenile football team, work as a team. “We run our programs together. He does exactly what I do,” he said. “I tend to be a little more visible because of my job. Chad and I do all this together. He matches me minute for minute. If I am going to accept it, I accept it on behalf of both of us.” Lalji believes the recognition is also about the positive impacts the football program has on players, rather than football action on the field. “We are not coaching football, we are coaching young men,” he said. That message hit home during the Hyacks recent 10-year reunion as part of Homecoming 2012. Whether they were part of winning teams or less successful seasons on the field, Lalji said players who returned for the anniversary celebration have demonstrated the pos-
itive impact that the football program has had on their lives. “It’s Citizen of the Year,” he said of the award. “We want to create citizens.” Lalji looks forward to the day when students involved in the Hyacks program are themselves being named Citizen of the Year. He notes the team’s motto SHARP – selflessness, hard work, accountability, respect and passion – is displayed on the dressing room walls for all players to see. “The hardest thing for teenage boys to understand is accountability. It truly is,” he said. “It’s a very difficult lesson. I am always saying, ‘Own it.’ That is a hard thing.” Lalji was born in Tanzania and moved to Vancouver at the age of five. He grew up in Burnaby, where he played football for Burnaby Central. Lalji, now a senior sports reporter with TSN/ CTV, later played for the Meralomas football organization in Vancouver. He coached at Burnaby Central for 12 years. “I wanted to start my own program,” he said Speaking with administration at New Westminster Secondary School and a Vancouver high school, he decided to pursue a program in the Royal City. “New West just seemed like a no-brainer because it is a one-school town,” he said. “Growing up next to it, it felt like a small town.” A year after launching the football program in 2003, Lalji married his wife Mary and they moved to New Westminster in 2005. It’s a move that other coaching staff have also made. “All of us committed to the community,” he said. “We didn’t just want to do football.”
Balancing a career, a family that includes two young children and football responsibilities can be challenging, but Lalji gets a lot of help along the way. “It certainly has gotten harder with children,” he said. “My wife has made it super easy. She doesn’t make it hard to commit my time to football.” Having taken some ribbing at work for his previous Citizen of the Year nominations, Lalji will be able to show that the community he now calls home has recognized his efforts. He notes that the timing of the recognition is “painfully ironic” as the team had a “bit of a down year” – but he’s up for the challenge of better years ahead.

Westminster dancers on stage in various roles. Morgan Dall performs as a Mountie, Madison Doerksen performs as an angel, Aleksei Lehman performs as a “party boy,” and Sydney Turner dances the role of a mouse. Set at the turn of the 20th century in Canada, this ballet offers a unique take on the timeless Christmas tradition, featuring quintessentially Canadian scenes, such as a hockey game and a battle
Holiday events BY HEATHER HORTNESS CONTRIBUTOR

Walk the winter wonderlands of yore people travel to warmer places for Christmas and New Year’s, many others search out places with guarantees of cold, crisp, snowy landscapes. New Westminster’s early years were generally colder and snowier than today, with cold snaps creating conditions that were, at times, quite dangerous to life, hazardous to travel and decidedly detrimental to the economy. There were times, with the river frozen, that supplies, cargo and sometimes

ne of the enduring images of the Christmas season is snow, and it is referred to at this time of year in musical pieces such as White Christmas and Winter Wonderland. While many
passengers, were offloaded from vessels near the Fraser’s mouth, and horsedrawn wagons and sleighs carried them to their destination. Sometimes people had to walk from the mouth of the river to the city. The weather at any given time of year can be an important part of community activities that mark the seasons and special days of its calendar. Winter and the local Christmas season provide us with a wonderful array
of stories that truly add character and colour to the Royal City’s history. We quickly realize that early folks enjoyed playing as much as working, and we follow their actions as they went skating, sleigh riding down city hills (known then as coasting), and throwing snowballs at each other. They trudged through the snow or mud to visit friends, they went carolling from house to house, and they gathered around a bonfire to mark New Year’s Eve.
One of the winter scenes we like to envision was the storage of sternwheel steamers in the Brunette River, out of the grinding ice of the main channel of the Fraser. In 1867 we note “Captain Irving’s two steamers Onward and Reliance took up their winter quarters in the Brunette, on Wednesday.” In 1888 there was lots of snow, and it was reported that “sleighing between this city and Vancouver is very fair. Yesterday
several people came over in sleighs and they are of the opinion that, barring the cold, the jingle of the bells is far sweeter music than the rattling of wagon wheels.” There are so many stories to tell, and we will be presenting a selection of them at the New Westminster Historical Society evening on Wednesday, Dec. 19, starting at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the New Westminster Public Library.

Dancers up for the Challenge The Americans are coming to SFU showcase
BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
A B.C. Centre of Excellence skate pair took a big step towards a possible fourth Canadian ice dance title. Burnaby’s ZhaoKai Pang, 17, and Port Moody teen Madelaine Edwards won the junior dance final with career-best scores in the short and free programs at the Skate Canada Challenge in Regina on Sunday. Pang and Edwards led after the short dance with a 60.56 score. They extended that lead over eventual runner-up Mackenzie Bent and Garrett MacKeen of Eastern Ontario with an 81.77-point score, skating to The Artist theme in the free dance. “We were really happy we walked away with two solid performances. It gives us confidence for the rest of the season,” said Pang. The two Burnaby Centre of Excellence skaters are coached by the successful former Olympic medallist dance pair of Megan Wing and Aaron Lowe. In the five years since Pang and Edward have been a competitive pair, they have won a national title at every level, beginning with a juvenile gold medal in 2009 and prenovice and novice crowns the following two seasons. Last year, Pang and Edwards won the silver medal at the nationals. “When we step onto the ice, we want everyone to be watching us,” said Pang. “We really enjoy the performance part of ice dance. We do enjoy interacting with the audience and interacting with each other. It’s an important part.” This season, the two skaters impressed judges on the junior Grand Prix circuit with back-to-back bronze medals in two

In August, Pang and Edwards garnered 113.73 points at a junior dance competition in Courchevel, France. Two months later, the duo improved their final number to 135.01, just one point shy of a silver medal at a Grand Prix event in Istanbul, Turkey. Sunday’s seven-point improvement from their last competition was further evidence that the onice chemistry between the two continues to bear fruit, despite the fact the dance partners narrowly missed making the six-team junior Grand Prix final, finishing
as a second alternate. “So far, thank God, their growth is the same, it’s a hurdle that we have overcome. There is something special with this team – they get along,” Lowe said, adding the two could have scored even higher numbers but for some injury issues two weeks before the Challenge. A win at the upcoming nationals in January would ensure Pang and Edwards of a berth at the world junior championships in Milan, Italy early next year. Lowe and Wing were also delighted with the
results of the novice dance competition, where Burnaby pair Danielle Wu and Spencer Soo defeated the Quebec pair of Christina Carriera and Simon-Pierre MalettePaquett, a team that had beaten them soundly in an earlier competition. “It was a good shock,” said Lowe, who helped coach three other Burnaby centre novice teams to topseven finishes.

CLA lacrosse ﬁght ban challenged by WLA governors BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
Western Lacrosse Association governors voted unanimously to oppose the Canadian association’s recent ban on fighting. On Monday, the Canadian Lacrosse Association and its board of directors announced a change to Rule 45 in the box lacrosse rule and situation hand-
book that would levy an automatic game misconduct for any player who engages in a fight. Subsection (b) adds if there is a clear instigator or aggressor in a fight, the non-offending player shall not receive an automatic ejection from the game. The ruling change would come into effect for the upcoming 2013 season and affect all levels of lacrosse played in Canada.
A WLA governor, who wished to remain anonymous, said the local senior A league operates outside of CLA guidelines on some rulings. But when WLA teams compete at national championships, they abide by the official handbook. At the WLA annual general meeting held last Saturday, team governors voted to continue with the existing 2012 fight rules and
ignore the CLA edict, said the unnamed governor. Team officials were asked not to comment on the rule change while the CLA comes up with a response to the action taken by the WLA. “I’m not happy for the fans, the players, and it’s not good for the game,” said the governor. “I’m very, very upset the CLA has gone down this road.”
In the CLA press release, fighting was described as an unecessary risk, citing the potential for severe and long-term injury due to the possibility of concussions. “The rule change allows our athletes to showcase the sport that we love and keeps the focus on the aspects that make our sport so great – speed, athleticism and skill,” said CLA president Joey Harris, in the press release.

Girls’ rink unlucky at B.C. junior spiel BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR email@example.com
Royal City Curling Club’s Dezaray Hawes had three kicks at the can but came away empty each time at the junior women’s playdowns in Courtney last weekend. The Hawes rink, including third Gabrielle Plonka, second Alexandra Renwick and lead Caitlin Campbell, went to three event finals but failed to garner one of the four available berths at the upcoming provincial championships in Coquitlam in the first week of January. Hawes opened with a win over Richmond’s Shawna Jensen, scoring two in the eighth end and a steal of two in the ninth for a 7-4 victory to move on to the A-event final against Kalia
Van Osch of Nanaimo at the Comox Valley Curling Club last Saturday. In the final, Hawes gave up two in the 10th end to in a 5-3 decision to Van Osch. In the B event, the Hawes rink got by eventual C2-event winner, Stephanie Prinse of Chilliwack 95 to advance to a second straight berthing opportunity. This time, Jensen proved the spoiler, scoring two in the third end and stealing three in the fourth and a single in the fifth before prevailing 7-4. With the loss, Hawes was relegated to the C event, where the Royal City foursome lost a heartbreaking 9-8 scoreline to Katherine Silversides of Juan de Fuca after surrendering four rocks in the 10th end of Sunday’s C1 final.

Right now, we’re in the early stages.” But the end game for Lowe and Wing is to take one of their dance pairs to the Olympics and win a medal one day. “That’s where we were and we hope to take teams beyond what we did,” he said.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: This week starts with hope – perhaps too much hope, as your logic weakens in the face of fond feelings or fond fantasies. Still, enjoy the friendship, popularity and happiness Sunday/Monday. By Monday eve, retreat to plan, contemplate and rest. You might experience a philosophical difference with someone, or a snag in dealing with government or institutions Tuesday, but Wednesday holds a sparkling love attraction, or a smooth breakthrough in legal, educational or travel zones. Your energy and charisma come roaring back Thursday into Saturday morning – start something ambitious. Taurus April 20-May 20: Focus on career, business, your ambitions and prestige relationships Sunday/ Monday. Though this is a quiet, deep month, involving big decisions in lifestyle, ﬁnances and intimacy, lighter notes come midweek, as entertainment, popularity, friends and optimism buoy your spirits. Thursday through Saturday morning, though, seek solitude and quiet; rest, contemplate and plan. This interval might bring a new, lucky idea involving your career, government or head ofﬁce (or some authority) and the fruits of research, detective work. An investment or ﬁnancial manoeuvre might be involved. Gemini May 21-June 20: This is your last week of exciting meetings, new opportunities and new horizons (perhaps relocation). Take advantage – make contacts, travel, call, make your bid. You feel wise and loving Sunday/Monday – but don’t blend a love relationship (even worse, a secret or collusive link) with your ambitions/career. By Monday night through Wednesday your actions and reputation will be scrutinized by higher-ups: if you pass, success follows. Be cautious to Tuesday noon, then pursue your goals. You could meet a new love Wednesday. Thursday/Friday bring light romance, social joy and new hopes.
Cancer June 21-July 22: This is your last week of drudgery. Tackle all chores, get them out of the way, because several new opportunities and friendship prospects will arise Friday into late January. You’ll want your energy and time to be free for these. Sunday/Monday feature investments, debt, large ﬁnances, sexual urges, subconscious desires, health diagnosis and lifestyle decisions. Midweek emphasizes far travel, wisdom, learning, gentle love. It also brings splendid career/work luck and inspiration (Wednesday). More emphasis on your career, community status, Thursday/Friday. Saturday, happiness! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: This is your last week of “heavy romance” or deep creativity, so don’t waste it. (By “heavy,” I mean deep or signiﬁcant.) Sunday/Monday bring partnership prospects, exciting meetings, new horizons, opportunities – and potential opposition, even enmity. You might be deceiving yourself about the chances of sex with someone very attractive. Be aware, astute. Midweek emphasizes sex, intimacy, large ﬁnances, changes and commitment. True love’s possible – you might even agree to wed. Wisdom, a mellow mood, culture, rituals, far travel, learning – and love – ﬂow Thursday/Friday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: It’s the last week of emphasis on your home, on security, real estate, kids/parents, retirement, etc. Though this zone begins to fade now in terms of big projects, demands and burdens, it now begins to bless you with sweet results and affection, especially Wednesday. However, don’t try to force “home delights” on a partner or prospective mate Sunday. (This day and Monday are for chores: eat and dress sensibly.) Midweek brings exciting meetings, new opportunities. Thursday to Saturday feature sexual urges, ﬁnancial luck. Friday begins a month of romance, risk and pleasure.

Dec. 16 - Dec. 22, 2012
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The fast pace of paperwork, travel, errands and calls continues – until Friday, when a month of deeper, domestic concerns will begin. Sunday/Monday are romantic – take a risk, collect your reward. Applies in love, and money too. But beware misunderstanding the import of a remark or message about work or health-related drugs. DON’T buy machinery. Midweek brings many chores (tackle them) – and a possible heart-thumping development in love. You might meet a new mate, or “rediscover” one. Thursday/Friday emphasize cooperation, opportunities, barriers and enmity – pick the positive. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Continue to chase money or collect possessions. Friday begins a month that won’t contain the same solidity of reward – so go all out before that day. Sunday/Monday feature home, security, foundations. Don’t let a love of money (or possessiveness) interfere with a slowly blossoming romance or creative project. Midweek emphasizes romance, adventure, risk, self-expression, love, teaching, beauty, pleasure and creativity – but it also offers “sweet luck” (Wednesday) in work/money. (In some cases, sudden love.) Tackle chores Thursday/ Friday. Saturday brings money opportunity. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high. Remain focused on big, important projects, people, relationships. Let the small, the details, paperwork, etc., wait until February – but tackle the most pressing of these Sunday/ Monday. In past weeks you’ve attracted attention (don’t blame me if you’ve hidden from it). Now to Jan. 7 you radiate a subtle charm that can turn friends into lovers, competitors into friends. Remember, until June/12 you have to be the chaser in love and money (if you want luck). Home, midweek. Romance, creativity Thursday/Friday – risk it!
Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Stay quiet, restful, contemplative until Friday – then one of the best months of your year begins. Until then, plan nearfuture actions/projects.Chase money Sunday/Monday. A sensual attraction might lure you, but deception or illusion can make you uncertain of your footing, or bring an element of gossip or “sneaking around.” Midweek brings errands, casual friends, paperwork (and newspapers) – drive carefully, as you’re a bit weary. Head home Thursday/Friday – Thursday for rest, Friday for getting ready to launch. Saturday your energy rises: chase romance or grab an opportunity. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Enjoy your social life while you can – Friday brings a month of quietude, rest and recuperation, thinking and planning. But until then, the social delights continue! Your energy and charisma draw others Sunday/Monday: start things. But shop only carefully: (mild) deception invades money matters. Midweek, chase money, pursue new clients, etc. Buy electrical, auto or computer items afternoonTuesday to 2 p.m.(PST)Wednesday.Siblings, casual friends, trips, calls, visits, news, errands and paperwork ﬁll Thursday/Friday. Friendship might turn to romance. Home, rest, Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Remain ambitious. Put your best self forward for bosses, parents, other VIPs – they will favour you now to early January. Be restful, quiet, contemplate and plan, Sunday/Monday. A parent or child might do you a favour – or argue. Your energy and magnetism rise nicely midweek – be bold, see and be seen, ask favours, start projects and relationships (before 2:30 p.m. Wednesday). Your money luck rises briefly Thursday/Friday. Avoid engine/electronic/computer purchases Thursday afternoon. Friday begins a month of social delights, flirtations, wish fulfillment and optimism! email@example.com • Reading: 604-886-4808
