School band will continue to play Parents and school board say program is important for students’ development BY CAYLEY DOBIE REPORTER email@example.com
West End elementary students won’t be asked to put away their clarinets and saxophones just yet after the New Westminster school board voted unanimously to keep the band program at the May 21 board meeting. Almost 100 people packed New Westminster Secondary’s library to voice concerns about staff’s earlier recommendation to cut the band program at West End elementary schools for a two-year period while the new middle school is being built. The board opposed the recommendation when it was first presented at the beginning of the month, and this sentiment was once again echoed during Tuesday night’s meeting. Trustee Casey Cook reminded those in attendance the program would remain and that the board was only deciding in what form it would remain for the 2013/14 and 2014/15 school years. “What matters now is which program is best,” he said during the meeting. There were three options presented by district administration. The first was to keep the program as is, but because of budget constraints this wasn’t the most cost effective option, according to the staff report. The second option was to offer the band program during teacher preparation time. The third option was to offer the band program after school, much like an extra curricular program. Some parents were supportive of the after-school model because it allowed Queensborough students the chance to participate in the program. But eventually ◗Program Page 4

City kids step lively on May Day City’s May Queen crowned at May Day celebration in Queen’s Park Wednesday BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
A new twist has been added to one of the Royal City’s oldest traditions. The annual May Day celebrations at Queen’s Park on Wednesday featured the crowning of F.W. Howay Elementary student Anastasia Sabinin as the city’s 143rd May Queen. Fellow F.W. Howay student Ben Crowther had the distinction of being the first Royal Knight to give a speech at May Day.
Grade 1 students from the May Queen’s school of F.W. Howay served as royal dancers and greeted the royal party. Later, Grade 3 students performed folk dances and Grade 4 students did maypole dances. While they were drenched during Tuesday’s dress rehearsal, the sun made an appearance as dancers took their places at the maypoles during Wednesday’s festivities. Following speeches and dances, the New Westminster Police Department’s canine unit offered a presentation.

Tearful pleas for resource teachers and counsellors BY CAYLEY DOBIE REPORTER email@example.com
Teary-eyed students and teachers shared their stories with New Westminster school board trustees Tuesday evening, in hopes of convincing the board to look elsewhere to make cuts in order to balance the budget. Grade 3 John Robson French immersion student Alex Blaison told trustees he’d be sad without Madame Doreen Malcolm – one of the almost 20 teachers, resource teachers and counsellors who could lose their jobs come June. “Who will take away anger?” he asked the trustees. “I understand you need to save money, but please don’t take away everyone’s support.” Blaison was only one of a dozen speakers who shared concerns over the cuts with trustees during the board meeting. Many of the speakers were part of a delegation from the New Westminster Teachers’ Union organized by union president Grant Osborne. The delegation pleaded with trustees to avoid cuts to non-enrollment teachers – these are counsellors and resource teachers who help students outside of the classroom – in order to protect the most vulnerable students in the district, Osborne said. Resource teachers typically help students who may need extra support in understanding a subject they’re learning in class, while counsellors help students who are struggling emotionally. According to the counsellors at the meeting, students need to be in a solid “frame of mind” in order to learn and absorb the information they’re told. Without the counsellors this wouldn’t be possible, they said. Osborne urged the board to re-examine the budget deficit and “look for the loose change” - even if that means waiting another year to get new supplies such as computers, desks and chairs. But it isn’t that easy, said board chair Michael Ewen after the meeting. “We’re not even talking about dealing with the deficit. We’re talking about cutting $3.5 million to get in line with the money the Ministry (of Education) gives us,” he said. According to the proposed budget, the school district would cut 19.4 full-time teaching positions, 14.5 support staff positions, 35 special-education assistant positions and three other professional staff positions. While these cuts aren’t set in stone just yet, Ewen said the reductions need to be made in order to balance the budget by the June 30 provincial deadline. “Some of the issues around how we do those reductions, I think we can still look at. I don’t think that’s finished,” he said. But one thing is certain, come September, students will have access to less services than they had in the past, Ewen added. “The fact that we’re having to reduce and give less services to kids is unfortunate,” he said. “It means that they’re going to receive less services. It means they’re going to receive less support, and it means that everybody in the whole system suffers.”

He is a gifted artist,” Blackmore said. “He really loves Cheval and Monet – those are two of his heroes. The paintings are his interpretation of famous paintings.” PotteryWorks offers classes in wheel-throwing, homebuilding and slipcasting, as well as fine art painting. “Originally the purpose behind starting the program was to build their self-esteem and give them some connection with the community and for the greater community to have an understanding of what people with disabilities are capable of,” Blackmore said of artists involved in the society’s program. “It’s become more than that. It’s very healing in many ways. It’s also therapeutic. This has been discovered in the last decade.” ◗Art Page 4

it proved too troublesome for parents, who would have had to shuttle kids quickly from one school to another. In the end, it came down to the importance of the program, and parents, teachers, students, and trustees all agreed band
was too important to be offered outside of regular school hours. Trustee David Phelan moved that the board approve the recommendation to provide the program during preparation time and in “subsequent years” look at offering a band program

Walk for cystic ﬁbrosis on BY MARELLE REID REPORTER email@example.com
The march is on to find a cure for cystic fibrosis, a fatal disease of the lungs and digestive system for which there is no cure. On Sunday, May 26, Cystic Fibrosis Canada will host the Great Strides 5 kilometre walk in Queen’s Park to help raise funds to improve the lives of people living with this illness. Cystic fibrosis is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults,
according to Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Each week in Canada, two children are diagnosed and one person dies from cystic fibrosis. Last year, half of those who died were 34 years old or younger. In New Westminster, local woman Eva Markvoort was four days away from her 26th birthday when she died from the disease three years ago. Her family and friends will be celebrating her life at the walk again this year with Team Reddy For a Cure. All funds raised from
the walk will support vital cystic fibrosis research and care programs funded by Cystic Fibrosis Canada. The ninth annual event will feature a barbecue sponsored by Mr. Mikes and live music from Freedom 95, as well as activities for kids. Registration opens at 10 a.m. and the walk begins at 11 a.m. Queen’s Park is located at 600 Eighth St. in New Westminster. For more information about cystic fibrosis, or to register for the fundraiser, visit www.cfvancouver.ca.

Western Canada’s oldest city is also going through a modern transformation, with a very careful balance being struck between old and new. It’s easy to prefer one over the other. Those residents with a nostalgic bent may have no time for changes that seem like a flash in the pan to them, while those pushing for a new identity for the city don’t want to focus on the past. But the great thing about this city is, there is plenty of room for both reverence and change.

IN MY OPINION
School counsellors vital for kids Dear Editor: An open letter to the school trustees of New Westminster: We are writing in response to the cuts to elementary and middle school counselling positions for the 2013/2014 school year. Over the past years, the elementary and middle school counselling levels in New Westminster school district have barely met the ever-increasing demands of our most vulnerable students. Currently, there are a total of 5.9 full-time equivalent counsellors to service 11 schools and a student population in excess of 3,800. In our view, the present working student/counsellor ratio is at best meeting a marginal standard of service. The cuts for next year and beyond would drop that 5.9 FTE to 1.8 FTE and make it virtu-
ally impossible to provide even a minimal level of service. We would move from a proactive, support model into reactive crisis management. What we do: Counsellors play a key role in the school system and are crucial in helping children with complex social and emotional needs. These needs must be met for learning to occur. Counsellors provide more than general guidance. As trained professionals we support children dealing with such issues as death, divorce, poverty, sexual abuse, physical abuse, trauma, family conflict and family violence. We work with children who have behaviour issues as well as emerging mental-health conditions, including the ever-increasing incidences of depression and anxiety. During any school day, we diffuse playground conflicts and provide a safe place for children to go ◗Counsellors Page 7

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Counsellors provide help ◗ continued from page 6
when they are unable to cope. We work with students who are fearful to come to school, who are confused and hurting over separation and divorce, who are traumatized by family violence and who have witnessed events that are incomprehensible to adults let alone a sixyear-old. We work with students who live in poverty, who are lacking in social skills and a sense of self worth. Students who are withdrawn, feel helpless, and worse, feel hopeless about their future and believe they are invisible. This is the reality of the lives of some of our students. What they need is immediate and ongoing attention and support of trusted qualified professionals. The real picture: We deal with students cutting themselves and then posting images online. We have taken children for psychiatric assessment at Royal Columbian and attended discharge meetings at Children’s Hospital. We have assisted mothers and their children to leave a domestic violence situation and find a safe haven. We have intervened with students engaging in suicidal ideation and supported children after the death of a parent. We go into homes and bring children to school. We are immediately on site to support students, staff and each other after a critical incident. The real cost: A reduction in services will have a real impact in areas of learning, attendance, social/emotional development and the ability to manage school demands. It will inevitably impact classrooms, administrators, and teachers, further
increasing stress and burnout. A costly result in the end. But the most concerning cost is the one to children who will not receive the services they desperately need to succeed as learners. Our request: We ask that the school board reconsider the cuts to counselling positions in the elementary and middle schools. As counsellors, we can find other jobs. Indeed, our neighbouring school districts are currently recruiting. The children need to be the priority. In the end no one wants the children and families of New Westminster who, when they most need vital support, find that there is little or no response available.

16.1 per cent. But it’s not just the province-wide numbers that are telling. As the Liberals showed on election night: “it’s the ridings that count, stupid.” Twenty-five of B.C.’s 85 ridings had a turnout of less than 50 per cent, and 19 of those were in the Lower Mainland. The award for most apathetic riding: Richmond-Centre at 38.9 per cent. Only seven ridings saw a turnout of more than 60 per cent, and of those the top three had one thing in common: races that engaged voters. In Oak Bay-Gordon Head, the Green party won its first ever seat in the legislature; in Delta
South, Vicki Huntington was re-elected – the first independent to be so in B.C.’s history; and in Saanich North and the Islands, the NDP may very well have eked out a victory in the province’s tightest three-way race. Of course, there were the Wednesday morning quarterbacks who tried to bend the votes of other parties so far out of shape as to claim that suchand-such a party cost such-and-such a party the election. It may provide comfort to the defeated, but it’s an argument based more on wishful thinking than political acumen. Vote tallies can easily be moved from column-to-column
after the fact, voters aren’t so easily moved before the fact. But the message for the NDP in all these numbers is ominous, and it’s not just about Adrian Dix. The NDP has been nothing if not short of leaders. In the last nine elections, no less than seven have been put to the electoral test. It may have more to do with the brand. Something isn’t connecting with the voters that the NDP needs in order to win. And that soul-searching is going to be far harder on the party faithful than a leadership race ever will be. ◆ Dermod Travis is the executive director of IntegrityBC.

ON DUTY: BEHIND THE SCENES AT RCH
ER doc has seen it all, over the years In a special series, reporter Marelle Reid chats with the people who make RCH run.
ike Mostrenko is an emergency room physician who has been working at Royal Columbian Hospital for more than 15 years. The Record caught up with Mostrenko to find out what it’s like in the ER. Can you describe your role? Answer: Basically, it’s to provide a clinical service. So, I work in the emergency room ON MY BEAT approximately 15 or Marelle Reid 16 shifts per month; varying shifts, evenings and nights. How is an ER doctor different from a regular physician? They’re quite a bit different. …It’s quite an exciting environment where you’ve got very unstable, unwell psychiatric patients. We get violent patients, and just these really cute, sweet little old ladies who come in just feeling weak and dizzy, and from one stretcher to the next you really don’t know what you’re going to get. Larry Wright/THE RECORD
What’s the most common reason for people to come to the ER? The most common, though I hate to say it, is probably patients looking for narcotic prescriptions. In my own opinion, there’s probably a significant amount of narcotic prescribing out in the community, and eventually patients become quite dependent on it and so we see a fair bit of that. What’s the most dramatic experience you’ve ever had on a shift? That would probably have to be a Christmas house fire that three children were burned (in). It was a late-night thing about a decade ago. We had two children perish in our hospital from that fire and (we were) trying to save these three children simultaneously that had all gone into cardiac arrest. It was just so difficult on the hospital staff; our senior ambulance attendant, you could tell was just so disturbed by the whole event in our hospital, and you know, nurses, our critical-care teams. The pediatrician came down, who was quite a senior pediatrician, and he was very bothered by the whole thing. It was just such an experience outside of what a normal human should experience. But everyone performed amazingly well, and we did the best we could. We saved one child and two passed away, but it was just one of those terrible human stories that happen at Christmas

Ready for anything: Dr. Mike Mostrenko has been working in the emergency room at Royal Columbian Hospital for more than
15 years. that I’ll just never forget. What’s the best part of your job? Well, there are the great stories of the patients that come in and nobody gives them a chance, and they just think there’s no way they’re going to survive. But then you see them three weeks later and the little grandma comes over and gives you a hug and a box of chocolates and she walks out of hospital and everyone gave up on them and you tried so hard and you saved them. Those don’t happen very commonly, but there’s probably, in 15 years, at least 15 cases of the unexpected survival where you just took it a little bit further than maybe you had to and then it paid off. It’s really rewarding, and I always remember those. That’s what gets you through the ones where you try so hard and you can’t make a difference, which unfortunately happens from time-to-time, but now we’re seeing some amazing survival stories that really make it worthwhile. What are the most common trauma cases you see? We see a lot of highway trauma and industrial accidents because we’re situated in an area where we’re in a catchment of the freeway and the industrial areas of New Westminster and Surrey. So
there’s often many terrible traumas that we see there and helicopter transports and sometimes we can get three or four critical traumas at the same time. We can get four or five very unwell patients from a single car crash, and that’s where it can get where you’re really running from one patient to the next and stamping out fires until people get stable. What’s the most satisfying part of your job? The most satisfying part for me is making a connection with the patients. I just really enjoy talking to the patients, serving them. We have this amazing gift of a job where we go to work and we really do try to help people. It’s a job, but for me, it’s more than that. What do you wish you could change about your job? I think in all aspects there are demanding individuals that have unrealistic expectations. We can’t change those people, certainly, but we have some patients, regularly, that don’t want to wait, even though we have a very busy department with overcrowding issues. What did you want to be when you were a kid? When I was really little I don’t think

I had a plan for my future. My parents really wanted us to be educated but I had no pressure to go to medical school. When I was training at university I briefly played soccer at the professional level and I really enjoyed my sport, so for much of my adolescent life I was very serious about my athletics while still performing well at school. When I went to university I wanted to be a marine biologist and so I did a fair bit of training in ecology. I got a degree in ecology and marine biology and I had a specific interest, too, in entomology – bugs and insects – and so I worked briefly in a biochemical lab that was quite a scientific lab that was looking at insect pheromones, and it was very interesting for me. I took a couple of pre-med courses and performed really well and I thought, well, maybe I’d like to do med school because it was something that was in the back of my mind, though I’d never told anybody. Do you wear scrubs? I’ve always worn jeans and a scrub shirt. I don’t think it’s ever become an issue. We do have a lot of patients who have white coat syndrome; they just don’t like doctors in white coats with ties and starched shirts. It makes them nervous. I chose, at the beginning of my career, to dress down in the department.

â—— IN THE LIBRARY
Uptown Live set for Saturday BY DEBRA NELSON CONTRIBUTOR email@example.com
On Saturday, May 25, the fun doesnâ€™t stop after the Hyack parade. Uptown Live is happening uptown around Sixth Street and Sixth Avenue, and everyone is invited. Enjoy music, food, family activities, and the City of New Westminster Family Fun Zone. City departments, including the New Westminster Public Library, will be there to inform and entertain. Youâ€™ll find the cityâ€™s Fun
Zone on Belmont Street. The first thing youâ€™ll notice will be the big vehicles, including a garbage truck, dump truck, backhoe, fire truck and the electrical operations vehicle, otherwise known as the bucket truck. Kids of all ages (adults, too) are welcome to inspect the trucks and maybe climb on a few. An all-time favourite is the Zamboni, which will take a break from cleaning ice so you can inspect it up close. Of special interest, although much smaller, is the cityâ€™s new 100 per cent
electric car. And, if you havenâ€™t seen the cityâ€™s Emergency Command Vehicle yet, you can step inside and take a look. The telescoping camera will give you a birdâ€™s eye view of the surrounding area. There will be lots of fun for the kids, including crafts, face painting, and the chance to jump on the trampoline and run some relay races. The library will be there to show you whatâ€™s new as well as introduce you to the new branch in Queensborough.

◗ OUR PAST
Explore local history OUR PAST ARCHIE & DALE MILLER
fascinating exercise to carry out about a particular piece of property includes finding out what the area surrounding the site was like over time. One method that works very well is to go decade by decade to see what was being developed in the home’s neighbourhood. Which house was first? When was it built? Is it still there? Who were the initial residents? The imagination can fill in wonderful scenes of land covered in trees and underbrush, gradually giving way to axes and saws as someone built their first home, perhaps homesteading, perhaps with a small garden, and on the story goes. Over the years we have been involved with proj-
ects by local school classes who wanted to know more about their particular neighbourhoods and how they had changed. Classes from schools such as McBride, Robson, Tweedsmuir and the high school enjoyed finding out what used to be in their immediate vicinity and what was still the same over the years. It can be eye opening to find out how “your area” grew up. An upcoming walking tour with a central focus of a very old house, will be exploring that building’s immediate neighbourhood from the 1860s, when there was little to accompany it on the hillside, to the present day, with a soon-to-be brand new school building. The story of the neighbourhood of this fine home includes a large number of sites and tales from almost 150 years of city history. The house at the centre

of this neighbourhood tour is Irving House on Royal Avenue. The walking tour is on Sunday, June 2. It will start at 1:30 p.m. near Fourth Street at Queens Avenue, where the city has blocked off Fourth St. to create green space and parking area, and will end near the same location. The tour is $10 a person, goes rain or shine, and will take about two hours. There is no need to pre-register.

Keeping the motorsports drive alive Driver looking to defend regional sports car title BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
Burnaby’s Dino Milacic is hoping to celebrate his 40th birthday with his first race win of the season in June. The manager of the Metrotown branch of Mark’s Auto Body was the Confederation of Autosports Car Club’s IP1 series champion last year. Milacic, who teams with colleague David Dalmonte, the 2012 GTM champion as MioDino Racing, has five races left from a six-race season to achieve his goal of back-to-back championships in the improved production class series at the River’s Edge road course at Mission Raceway. “I’m already behind the 8-ball,” Milacic said. “The only way I can win is to place first in every single race from here on.” The feat is not impossible, however. Milacic loves the BMW 330i he drives for its quickness and reliability. “It’s a pretty bulletproof vehicle,” he adds. Milacic always dreamed of being a race car driver, and although his dreams were muted somewhat when the Westwood track in Coquitlam closed the same year he acquired his driver’s licence, he never lost his passion for motorsports.

Reliable wheels: Dino Milacic is behind the wheel of MioDino Racing’s BMW 330i for another season of local car racing at Mission Raceway this season. It rekindled in 1997 with his first driver training experience and was fueled outright when he drove in an invitational sedan race at the Molson Indy in 2002. Milacic longs for those days again and believes that better days are ahead
for local motorsports. “I’m not giving up promoting motorsports,” he said. Money has always been a limiting factor to how successful a would-be racer can be in the world of motorsports. But Milacic maintains
there are plenty of realistic options at the local and regional levels that can give novice drivers all the thrills of the big-name events. The Sports Care Club of British Columbia sponsors a varied race schedule involving two dozen race
classes at Mission Raceway each year. The key is a responsible budget that fits a driver’s ability to support his passion for the track. “It’s a competitive environment and I love it, but I think I have a world-class skill set,” Milacic said.
Clan star named region track athlete of the year BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
Simon Fraser University middle distance runner Helen Crofts was named the West region female track athlete of the year by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. The Clan senior is currently the Division II leader at 800 metres heading into this weekend’s NCAA Div. II outdoor championships. Crofts recorded a time of 2:04.53 in the metric half mile this season to lead all competitors by more than three seconds. Her time is
Hyacks lead record assault at meet
also the sixth-fastest time in the event in Div. II history. In addition, Crofts is ranked seventh in the 1500m with a time of 4:26.85 and 10th in the 400m with a 54.46 clocking. Crofts recently won the Great Northwest conference championship in both events, and is also a member of the Clan’s eighthseeded 4×400m relay team. The Clan are in Pueblo, Colorado this week for the NCAA Div. II outdoor track and field championships, which began Thursday. Last Friday, Crofts was also one of six SFU athletes
named to the U.S. coaches association all-region team. Crofts earned the recognition for top five finishes in four separate events this season. She was joined by running mates Lindsey Butterworth and Sarah Sawatzky. Chantel Desch and Michaela Kane also earned all-region nods as members of the Clan 4x400m relay team, while field athlete Jade Richardson was named to the team after a Great Northwest conference title in the women’s discus.

Stefan Milosevic led a Hyack Swim Club wave of record-setting efforts at the 39th annual Hyack Festival Youth Cup last weekend. The 17-year-old Cariboo Hill Secondary student won five age-group swims, setting new pool marks in each of the disciplines for the fourth-place-finishing club at the Canada Games Pool in New Westminster. Milosevic took the gold medal in the boys’ 50-, 100- and 1,500-metre freestyle swims. He also won the 200m backstroke and butterfly. The Hyack club product also placed runner-up in the 200m individual medley. Milosevic’s metric mile swim was voted the top swim of the meet. The Hyacks also got record swims from two other club members. Chris Baker set new marks in the 14-year-old boys’ 100 and 200m fly. Twelve-year-old upand-comer, Ethan Laing, also set an age-group mark in the 200m breaststroke. He placed second in both the 200 and 400m IM. In all, 32 meet records were bettered at the annual Hyack meet. “That’s pretty significant,” said Hyack swim coach Mark Bottrill. “They’re future Olympic hopefuls doing this outstanding stuff. It’s pretty exciting to see them dig in and perform.” Hyack swimmers also set new club records at the meet in relays. The 10-and-under girls’ team of Zoe Froh, Victoria Tocheva, Jaime Lavoie and Allison Wong swam into the record book in the free relay. Brian Ni, Dima Lin, Sehajvir Singh and Laing also set a new club mark in the 12-and-under free team event. Ni also medalled in six other individual events, winning gold in both the 100 and 1,500m free. He placed second in the 50m ◗Swim Page 19

First-time Bryant falls to top seed at Division I nats Junior long pole Matt MacGrotty helped Bryant University get to a program-first NCAA national Division I field lacrosse championship tournament last week. Bryant wound up losing 12-7 to No. 1-ranked Syracuse University in the opening round of the nationals at the Carrier Dome in New York on Sunday. “What this day meant, not only for Bryant lacrosse but Bryant University, just can’t be put into words,” said Bryant head coach Mike Pressler in a school press release. “But at the end of the day, we came here to win, and there is no moral victory here. It was
about winning and advancing, and with the score 9-7 going into the fourth quarter, we were right where we wanted to be, and we just didn’t make the plays to close out the game.” Sophomore standout and Northeast conference player of the year Kevin Massa won an NCAA single-season record 22-for-23 faceoffs for Bryant against Syracuse, while a pair of Bulldog teammates scored hat tricks in the program’s first-ever NCAA Div. I tournament appearance. MacGrotty, who started all 19 games for the Bulldogs this season, led the team with 29 forced turnovers this season. He also had 35 ground balls.
In the playoffs New Westminster’s Kyle Turris is hoping he can help the Ottawa Senators make it to Game 6 against the Pittsburgh Penquins in the second round of NHL playoffs. Turris has scored two of his five playoff goals to date against the Pens in games 2 and 4, both losses. He is currently tied for fourth place in playoff goal scoring and third among Sen’s in team scoring behind captain Daniel Alfredson and defenseman Erik Karlsson. In the playoffs, Turris is also a plus-1 and has a 54.5 efficiency percentage in the faceoff circle.
