Stepping up for youth
Park gets a boost
Royal City resident in search of B.C. Ambassador title
Feds will offer a low-cost loan to city for new park
BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Chelsey Binns knows a little bit about moving around. The Royal City resident was born here but moved to Melbourne, Australia as a youngster, returning when she was 12. As the oldest of seven children, she decided to go to high school in neighbouring Burnaby, graduating from Byrne Creek. Now 19, she’s studying at MTI Community College in the community support and youth working diploma program in the hope of becoming a social worker. Come Aug. 12 and 13 in Merritt, though, Binns will be trying to win the title of B.C. Ambassador. The British Columbia Ambassador program is an annual event, open to any man or woman between the ages of 17 and 23, who has previously held an ambassador/ royal title in the province. Binns was a contestant in the Hyack Ambassador competition last year, winning the People’s Choice and Miss Friendship honours. During her tenure as a Hyack Ambassador, she was able to travel all across the Pacific Northwest, helping to promote the Royal City. When she found out about the B.C. Ambassador program, she decided to throw her hat into the ring, and she’s among 14 people vying for three winning spots. The three winning ambassadors will represent the youth of the province, promoting the pillars of education, motivation and self-esteem. Candidates are judged on a variety of items, with the key criteria focusing on public speaking, personal interviews, presentation skills, a talent show and even an exam on the province, including current events. ◗Ambassador Page 8

The City of New Westminster will be saving a sizable chunk of change on its ambitious Westminster Pier Park project following the city’s approval for a low-cost loan from the federal government. Alice Wong, minister of state for seniors, made the announcement atop the Front Street parkade, overlooking the park on Monday. Under the municipal infrastructure lending program, the city will borrow $6.3milliontowardsitsonethird share of Westminster Pier Park. Provincial and federal grants will cover the rest of the $25.1-million project. The government loan means the city can borrow at about 3.5 per cent interest, fixed, over 15 years. Had the loan not been approved, the city would have had to borrow from the Municipal Finance Authority at a higher rate. “At 15 years, I think it would have cost us an additional $420,000 if we went through MFA,” said Gary Holowatiuk, the city’s director of finance. ◗Funding Page 8

A CLOSER LOOK ◗ A WALK BACK IN TIME WITH JIM JOHNSTON
Looking back on a lifetime of change
BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Jim Johnston has seen more changes in his lifetime than most folks will ever see, but he has had no trouble keeping up with the times. Johnston, 94, was born in Aberdeen, Scotland in March 1917. He moved to Canada in 1921, settling in Winnipeg with his family. Johnston, who is comfortable using a computer and keeping in touch with folks via email, recalls how he and his brothers would rig a little crystal set on top of a magnet before they had access to a batteryoperated radio. “We’d get Foster Hewitt and the hockey games. Someone would touch it and the sound would be gone,” he recalled. “Then the radio came in, and you’d just get into the middle of something and the battery would die.” Johnston lived in Winnipeg during the Great Depression. Back then, farm owners would sometimes pay people $2 a day for putting sheaves together and $3 a day for thrashing. “I worked there during the Depression. Very tough times,” he said. “You could buy a T-bone steak with all the trimmings for five cents.” Jobs were scarce, so Johnston made money doing odd jobs such as peddling food on the street and riding the rails to farms where jobs could sometimes be found. “They had camps along the way. You could get some hot coffee. You rode up at top of the trains,” he said “Everybody was looking for work.” Johnston eventually got a job at the Canada Packers meat plant in Winnipeg. In 1931 he joined the Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders of Canada. “I started playing the bagpipes there. I ended up doing that for about 64 years.
Larry Wright/THE RECORD
Living history: Longtime New Westminster resident Jim Johnston looks back on a lifetime of change. I tortured a lot of people,” he laughed. “I stopped on my 80th birthday.” In 1937, Johnston moved up to the Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders’ regiment and continued working at Canada Packers. “In 1939, Sept. 2, war was declared,” he said. “I joined up there with my dad the next day. He was also a member of the
Cameron’s at that time.” Johnston got shrapnel in the arm while serving in Antwerp, Belgium. He was shipped back to Britain, where he remained in hospital for nine months. “My arm was the size of my leg,” he said about his injury. “It was painful for a while.” Johnston eventually retuned to Winnipeg
and resumed work at Canada Packers. It was there that he met his future wife Wanda, whom he married on Dec. 13, 1946. “We decided in December of ’47 we should come to B.C. We had had enough of the snow piles,” he said. “We came to Vancouver. I got a job at Canada Packers here. In 1949, I got a job at the B.C. Pen.” ◗Johnston Page 4
Penitentiary lives on in Royal City memory BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
The B.C. Penitentiary may be long gone in New Westminster, but it’s not forgotten. The British Columbia Penitentiary opened in New Westminster in 1878, on a site overlooking the Fraser River. It was the first federal penitentiary to open west of Manitoba and housed those serving sentences of two years or longer. Jack David Scott wrote Four Walls in the West: The Story of the British Columbia Penitentiary, which
tells the story of the penitentiary from its opening in 1878 to its closure 102 years later in 1980. The names of the chapters give readers an idea of the content inside: Bursting at the Seams – 1955 to 1964; Calm Before Conflict – 1964 to 1969; The Stormy 70s. Royal City resident Jim Johnston started working for the Penitentiary Service in 1949, retiring in 1977. During his 28-year career at the B.C. Pen, he held assorted jobs. “I was on the guard staff for awhile. Then I became one of the farm bosses in charge of the livestock and poultry. I had that for a
number of years,” he said. “They looked after the animals, feeding them, cleaning the barns. I had a gang of nine to 10 people.” Although his work crew was armed with knives on Tuesdays – the day when seven pigs were butchered weekly – Johnston wasn’t fearful for his safety. “You get used to it,” he said about prison work. “Like in the war, you get used to things happening. It was interesting work.” Johnston has several photo albums that are filled with images of the B.C. Penitentiary property. Some photographs show potato
fields stretching up to the McBride Boulevard site that is now home of the Justice Institute of B.C. The penitentiary’s farm had a thousand or more chickens that provided eggs for the prison. In addition to growing food in its farms and orchards, pheasants were hunted on the property. “They sold the farm and I went into the greenhouse,” said Johnson, who was experienced in horticulture. “It was the greenhouse that supplied all the flowers for the lawns and inside gardens.” Johnston worked in the B.C. Pen’s greenhouse for a number of
years. Having passed his horticultural exams, he taught horticulture to the inmates. “I took over outside the walls,” he said about penitentiary property located outside the prison walls. “I was in charge outside the walls from the Fraser River to Eighth Avenue.” Located next to the Woodlands School site, the B.C. Pen property also stretched to the banks of the Fraser River. “I built the first wharf they had there,” Johnston recalled. “They ◗Penitentiary Page 9

Johnston: Life in a changing city ◗ continued from page 3
Johnston was living in Vancouver when he started working at the B.C. Pen in New Westminster; he soon moved to the Royal City, where he and Wanda raised their four children. Johnston worked at the B.C. Penitentiary for 28 years, retiring in 1977. His bagpipe experience came in handy for the May 1980 official closing ceremony of the B.C. Pen, where he led officials to the podium. “I went to the front gate and played Amazing Grace,” he said. “I went to the one tower and played the Lament.” After retiring, Johnston was president and vice-president of the Century House Association board of directors for many years. He was also one of the founders of the Legion Highland Gatherings, which were annual events attended by pipe bands from across B.C. “I retired. We made a lot of trips. I was interested in the Highland Games,” he said. “The Legion pipe bands were in great demand.” Johnston, who turned 94 in March, attributes his successful and long-lasting marriage to open communication. Wanda passed away in 2008.
“We had a very good relationship. We had a good 63 years,” he said. “We just talked things over. We did everything together. That’s the main thing. We took the kids wherever we went. We had five o’clock supper. We made rules – it was easy to accept. We never had any problems.” Johnston has close relationships with his children – Joyce, Sharon, Jim and Elaine – and gets daily calls and visits from his offspring. He also has seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren (with another on the way). Nowadays, Johnston still enjoys attending the races at Hastings Track, bowling at Lucky Strike Lanes and trying his luck at the casino. “I do a lot in the garden, I do a lot in the house,” he said. “I still drive. I bowl and I play the horses. I go in to the den of inequity. I am pretty lucky.” Johnston continues to live in New Westminster, though he admits it’s changed al lot through the years. “New Westminster was a very quiet place,” he said. “We didn’t have the same traffic we have now. There’s been so much that’s changed.”

(But it might this time – nothbut it was the capper to two weeks of ing like a financial panic to pop the gradually crumbling stock prices, which
housing bubble.) If there was a consensus about what caused the last recession, it was that letting financial wizards do whatever they want is not a good idea. That selling homes to anyone with a pulse is not good business sense. And that there was too much debt, both private and public, sloshing around. In three years, the sub-prime mortgage part has pretty much taken care of itself in the U.S. The other two parts? Not so much.
The response of governments, at home and abroad, was to prop up and restart the same system that got us into this mess. A few new rules were passed here, a few regulations there, but we upgraded from an Edsel to a Pinto, at best. We need to look at the way our economy works and consider if it really does. Work, that is. Is it doing what we want it to do, and can it be changed for the better? The old saying here is apt. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice …
Watchdog to monitor municipal spending IN THE HOUSE KEITH BALDREY
unicipal governments and the tax dollars they spend have been thrust into the spotlight in recent weeks, and they are about to discover that scrutiny of their dealings is going to increase significantly. First came two reports by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business. One showed that municipal government spending in the last decade has increased twice as much as population growth and inflation. In one year alone (2008), municipal spending increased by almost 10 per cent, far greater than the 4.4 per cent growth in population and inflation. The other report showed that commercial businesses are being squeezed by steadily increasing property taxes. Business property taxes are now almost three times that of resident property taxes, which spells bad news not only for those businesses but also potentially for municipalities as well if businesses close or relocate because of high tax levels. Next was that dust-up over the proposed two-cents-a-litre
gas tax to help pay for the Evergreen transit line. Most Metro Vancouver mayors signed off on the deal. B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins said the mayors should scrap the tax and instead look inward to cut about one per cent of their municipal budgets. The reaction from some mayors was telling, in that they utterly dismissed the notion of cutting spending. Next up was Phillip Hochstein, president of the Independent Contractors and Business Association. He appeared on CKNW and wrote an op-ed piece for The Province newspaper in which he painstakingly made the case that municipal politicians have sold out taxpayers by agreeing to ridiculously generous collective agreements (when it comes to benefits) with unionized staff. Hochstein took no issue with the unions but aimed his criticism directly at the municipal politicians for agreeing to the contracts. But another shoe is about to drop. Few will remember this, but Premier Christy Clark promised – back when she was in the middle of the B.C. Liberal leadership race – to establish a new independent watchdog of municipal finances if she won the leadership. Well, she won and, yes, she is embarking on establishing the Office of the Municipal AuditorGeneral.
Clarifying the details Dear Editor:
Re: Early detection helps fight oral cancer, The Record, Aug. 3. First off I would like to thank The Record for this well-written article on the importance of early detection. However, I fear that I might have been misinterpreted over the phone, therefore I hope I can make some clarification. I appreciate the opportunity to do so here. 1. The velscope is not a diagnostic tool but rather a screening tool. If the loss of fluorescence is seen it merely suggests an area that’s different from the rest. It is not to confirm or suggest “cancer.” 2. At Uptown Family Dental we perform a white light soft- and hard-tissue examination prior to screening. I don’t use the velscope on literally “every single patient,” but a high percentage of patients do ◗City Page 7 have the velscope examination as an adjunct.
3. I also might have been misunderstood when I was quoted saying, “It was a surprise to learn that they don’t do this type of test everywhere.” My intention was: “As a whole, we are making strides in early detection and that I hope it’s made more accessible to the public in the future.” Dr. Hedy Lam, New Westminster

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Grief for Norway tragedy ◗ continued from page 6
in March of this year, and we have been a part of the community in New Westminster and Burnaby throughout our century of existence. We have been actively promoting and preserving our heritage by teaching our traditions in art (fabric, painting and woodwork), cooking and folk dancing over the years, and supporting each other in times of sickness or distress. Our members are shocked and saddened by the news of the terrible bombing and shooting in Norway. Some of our members are distantly related to people in Norway, because we are second, third and fourth generation Canadians, but others were born in Norway and still have strong ties to their homeland with close family members who live there. Regardless of our family connections, we are still part of the Norwegian brotherhood, and are deeply affected by these terrible events. It is inconceivable that such a peaceful and progressive country should have something as terrible as this happen. The perpetrator is unrecognizable to us as a Norwegian (or a Christian) because his actions simply do not reflect the strength of character typical of Norwegians. Varden Lodge members join in sorrow and support with other lodges throughout Sons of Norway and all Norwegians.
Balwant Singh Sanghera, Richmond
City: Spending will be considered The deputy minister of community services, Don Fast, has quietly been leading the consultation phase. It will continue through the upcoming Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in the fall. The new office will likely be modelled on the provincial auditor-general, who is an independent officer of the legislature and who has the ability to scrutinize government operations and spending decisions. Some of the B.C. auditor-general’s investigations have led to embarrassments for the provincial government over the years. One has to assume there is potential for a municipal version to do the same thing. Municipal politicians love to insist they are the most accountable of all government because they are “closest” to the voters. But this is nonsense, of course.
You may be looking to purchase a new home, renew your current mortgage or choosing to consolidate debts to lower your overall monthly payments. I will create a custom plan that will allow you to reach your goals.

Thanks to Royal Columbian
Our overloaded health-care system and professionals often get undeserved criticism. A vast majority of the professionals working in our health-care system are very hard-working and caring individuals. Unfortunately, they rarely get credit for doing a commendable job in a very demanding and stressful environment. My elder brother, Gurbux Singh, in his late 70s, and a longtime resident of Burnaby, suddenly began to have difficulty with his breathing on June 22. He was taken to the Royal Columbian Hospital in order to undergo some tests. The attending physician, a very kind cardiologist, immediately did appropriate tests and found out that my brother’s arteries were plugged up and he needed immediate surgery. The hospital staff did a bypass within a few hours of his arrival. By taking immediate action, they saved my brother’s life. To their great credit, the doctors, nurses and support staff provided excellent care to my brother before, during and after the operation. Due to their timely and superb care, my brother is making a fast recovery. My family is very thankful to the wonderful doctors, nurses and staff for saving my brother’s life and making his stay in the hospital a very pleasant one. It is a welldeserved compliment to them all.
Voter turnout in municipal and school board elections is even lower than those for provincial and federal elections. As well, municipal governments garner nowhere near the media scrutiny aimed at other levels of government. A typical municipality may have a reporter from the local paper covering the council meetings, but small papers don’t have the resources to offer much more than that. By comparison, three television stations, several radio stations, four daily newspapers and a host of other news outlets cover the B.C. government with dozens of reporters every day. It’s unlikely media coverage of municipal politicians will increase any time soon, but those politicians will soon find themselves under the scrutiny of auditors who will be able to walk into municipal halls all over the
province and ask to see the books. I’m not suggesting that a bunch of wrongdoing will be discovered, but I’d be surprised if independent auditors don’t look askance at some of the spending decisions that occur in city governments around the province. Such issues as six-digit salaries for management staff, expense accounts and travel allowances for politicians, and benefit packages for unionized staff may soon be on the table in a way that we haven’t seen before. Those kinds of spending items may be framed against the steady rise in property taxes, which is an issue that will grow in importance in the months ahead. Is that a bit of nervousness I detect in our town councillors and managers out there? Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global B.C.

Ambassador: Role model for youth ◗ continued from page 1
“I have to do two speeches, one about three to four minutes on a topic I’m passionate about and another about two or three minutes on where we’re from. “The topic I’m passionate about, that one’s a secret, but when I talk about New Westminster, I’ll talk about its rich history and the great sense of community we have here.” For the talent show, Binns plans to show off her salsa dancing. Binns said she has had nothing but support and encouraging words from her friends and family. “At first, you get a lot of ‘You’re trying to be a beauty queen,’ but once they find out what the competition is about, they realize there’s a lot more to it,” she said. “This is a program that encourages youth

Funding: ‘This is more than just a park’ ◗ continued from page 1
A similar loan from a private bank would likely run double that amount, Mayor Wayne Wright said. “It shows that we do business in the right way. We’re very aware of how hard it is to earn money and how hard it is for our taxpayers, and we’re going to save in every place we can,” Wright said. The city is seeking the remaining $2 million from a similar low-cost loan program offered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. The city purchased the abandoned industrial brownfield site on the waterfront between Sixth and Elliott streets, where construction is nearly done, in 2009 for $8 million. The park, on schedule for its grand opening in September, will connect to the existing Quayside esplanade and have pathways, a large gathering space, a building that includes a concession and wash-
rooms, grassy areas, lookout points and bridges that provide views of the water, an elevated viewing platform and two children’s playgrounds. “This is more than just a park,” Wright said. “People in New Westminster are going to be living downtown and to live downtown, they have no backyard or front yard. They need space. They need a place to teach their children how to ride a bicycle or rollerskate or play floor hockey. This is what they need, and this is what we’re going to get.” Wong said the park is just what the federal government had in mind for “smart, targeted investments that improve sustainability and prepare communities for future growth.” “This is a great example of how the municipal infrastructure lending program is improving community infrastructure while putting Canadians to work,” Wong said.
to step out of their comfort zones and to go above and beyond to represent their communities and their province. It builds confidence and maturity among youth. “My goal is to be a role model to the youth of B.C. and to show that when you put your mind to it, you can achieve anything.” As part of participating in the program, Binns also has to fundraise for the scholarships and bursaries that will be distributed in August. Presently, she’s raised $900, and she hopes to get into four figures before all is said and done. To help her fundraising efforts, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bygone era: A photo from Jim Johnston’s collection shows chickens being fed in the yard at the B.C. Penitentiary.
Penitentiary: ‘It was just the way it was’ ◗ continued from page 3
had a boat out in the river. They used to snag logs. They towed them in.” With the assistance of a donkey and machinery, the logs were taken to the prison. “They’d haul them inside the walls,” Johnston said. “The inmates would cut them. We’d use them for fire.” Once a year, the prisoners would go through the ravine, slashing back the foliage to prevent fires from starting in the overgrowth. Inmates provided all of the labour for work done on the farm and in the greenhouse. “We had to put in reports for the day on their labour,” Johnston recalled. “If they didn’t get enough points, they didn’t get their tobacco at the end of the week.” The B.C. Penitentiary had various shops where inmates did work like painting, carpentry and metal or brick work. “It was to educate the inmates so they could get a job when they were out,” Johnston said. “It was an excellent opportunity to get experience that they never had.” Johnston said many of the inmates were drug addicts; heroin was a popular drug at that time. “I found lots of plants at the farm. I found lots of drugs,” he said. “We had control of them. If they didn’t work, if they got into trouble – down the hole for seven days. It was just a bed and bread and water.” In addition to growing poppies for heroin, inmates were also growing another plant near the exercise yard, a plant that staff thought was a weed until a senior prison official came to visit and told staff otherwise. “Nobody knew anything about marijuana,” Johnston said. “A guy came to visit. He said, ‘What have you got that growing there for?’ We said, ‘It is a weed.’ He said, ‘It is marijuana.’” Johnston said the prison
had very rigid rules. “It was just the way it was. We had lots of discipline,” he said. “I couldn’t hack it today. It was an awfully different ballgame in my time. They couldn’t talk from six o’clock at night until six o’clock the next morning.” Johnston said he had few problems with prisoners not doing the jobs they were assigned to at the prison. “You had to be strict,” he said. “They came to work. My thing was they came to work. They liked it.” In those days, Johnston said prisoners who broke the rules were subject to five lashes with the paddle – 10 if they repeated their offence. “That was a problem solver for everybody,” he said. “That was the times.” Four Walls in the West recounts some of the hard times at the B.C. Pen, but it also highlights some of the lighter moments. In the late 1940s, the Canadian Red Cross began holding clinics so inmates could donate blood; performers like Louis Armstrong, the Mills Brothers and Frankie Lane, in town to perform at the Cave in Vancouver, dropped by the prison to perform with local performers. On a darker note, the prison’s history also included hunger strikes, unexplained deaths of inmates, Doukhobour-set fires in the compound, and hostagetaking incidents, the most famous that resulted in the death of classification officer Mary Steinhauser in 1975. Johnston said there were a few escapes and attempts during his years working at the B.C. Pen. “You’ll always get the odd one. It was a little hard. We had razor wire around the yard,” he said about escapes. “There were towers and guards.” The final inmate was moved out of the B.C. Pen in February 1980, but a formal closing ceremony wasn’t held until May of that year.
Johnston had a role in the official closing ceremony. “The platform guests had been piped to their seats by Jim Johnston, a retired officer, and now at the end of the ceremony he marched to the front gates where he played Amazing Grace, then on to number 1 tower where his lament echoed hauntingly back from those timeworn walls,” Scott wrote in Four Walls in the West. While the B.C. Pen has long since closed, some traces remain on its former site, including burial sites of some prisoners. “I buried the first six people up there,” Johnston said. “There are 50 up there right now. Three years ago there was a body taken out of there.” According to Johnston, a First Nations man’s remains were removed from its burial site and sent up country. “We had to move graves because they were sliding into the ravine,” he said. “I think it (the cemetery) should be saved.” The New Westminster Heritage Preservation Society concurs, having named the B.C. Pen cemetery as one of its Top 10 most endangered heritage sites or buildings in New Westminster in 2007. “The headstones contain no dedication, no memorial, no date, not even a name, simply poured concrete stamped with a prisoner number,” said an article in the society’s newsletter, The Preservationist. “It was a burial place of those who had no one who could or who would claim their bodies after death.” The article states that a person could stand in the cemetery and not even know they were in a burial place. “Just as was done for those who were buried at Woodlands, those who are buried here deserve a cemetery and memorial which provides a proper remembrance,” said the society article. “It is, after all, a large part of our city’s history.”

‘Naked Ladies’ in the garden ◗P12 Paper Postcards ◗P14
On the ‘Crawl’: The colours of home Local artists open their doors this weekend with city’s Cultural Crawl Local artist Marney-Rose Edge doesn’t have to travel far for inspiration – just out the door into her own garden. Edge, who works primarily in watercolours, is known for her floral paintings, many of which are based on plants in her own Royal City garden. “The garden is my inspiration. I pretty well planted all of it. Now it’s a jungle, with tangled honeysuckle, roses and peonies – we even put in a pond in the back,” she says. Originally from New Zealand, Edge settled in New Westminster after stints in Australia, England and the U.S., and has made quite a name for herself on the arts scene locally and internationally, winning awards at various levels and becoming involved with the Federation of Canadian Artists. This is her second year taking part in the New West Cultural Crawl. She says the “crawl” – which is an annual event that sees local studios open their doors to the public and a variety of events happening around the city – helped her get to know her new community. “Nobody knew I was here – people would walk by (my house) and not realize it was a studio. The cultural crawl is a great way to be in contact with people – the community supports the artists.” Edge says that the annual crawl is a great opportunity for anyone interested in the arts to learn more
about what’s happening in New Westminster and to discover useful resources. Edge is just one of dozens of artists taking part in various ways in this weekend’s cultural crawl, running Aug. 13 and 14. Another artist that took inspiration from his home surroundings will also be in town for the crawl. Artist Jack Campbell, 80, was born and raised in New Westminster but has lived on Saturna Island for the last 14 years. He began painting the Fraser River in the late 1940s and has been painting waterways ever since. Campbell will be on hand at the Amelia Douglas Gallery at Douglas College to meet visitors and discuss his paintings and drawings in his latest exhibit, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. “The Fraser will always be very important to me, from the building of the bridges, to the mills, to the use of the old beehive burners that would burn sawdust from the mills. There is constant activity on the river. … Now, on the Gulf Islands I’ve gone from fresh water to salt water and sea life, and it’s a nice feeling between the two.” Edge and Campbell are just two of the many artists who will be sharing their work this weekend. Dozens of galleries and individual artists are taking part in the Crawl, including the Van Dop Gallery, Lanta and Rodrigo Studio, Monique Lum Studio, Freeflow Scenics Studio and Margaret Halsey Studio, to name just a few. A full listing of sites, as well as events – such as a poetry celebration in Hyack Square – is available at www.newwest culturalcrawl.com. – compiled by Christina Myers

‘Naked Ladies’ add variety to the garden BRANCHING OUT ANNE MARRISON
ery soon a spectacular fall flowerer with many names will be available in garden centres – today it’s usually called Autumn Crocus after its flowering time and the shape of its large, goblet-shaped flowers in purple-pink, mauve or white. Old-time names include: Naked Ladies and Naked Boys because
the flowers usually emerge before the leaves. Sometimes it’s called Wonder Bulb since it’s capable of flowering when bare bulbs are left on a windowsill. Botanically it’s called Colchicum. Because it’s beautiful, easy to grow, tolerant of adversity and adaptable to most variations of sun and shade, it’s a wonderful asset for any garden with average soil. This is one of the plants that survives for years in very old, untended gardens. Though Colchicum bulbs aren’t cheap, they’re great value because they’re long-flowering and increase fast into large
mats without adventuring into places where they’re not wanted. The two extreme situations that can kill them are dry, dense shade and swampy or flooded conditions. Their ideal situation is a few hours of sun daily and well-drained soil that doesn’t dry out severely. The time when water is really needed is whenever leaves are showing. Luckily this is usually when our climate supplies lots. During August, gardeners who want Autumn Crocus for their garden will need to move fast to acquire them, because once spring bulbs arrive the
autumn bulbs either sell out or vanish from stock. It’s also important to plant them before leaves begin to grow – and they should never be moved while leaves are visible. I tried this once as an experiment, and it took several years for flowers to reappear. All colchicum are very hardy in this climate. They accept acid or alkaline soil, but can have trouble in extremely nutritious soil. Bonemeal is good nourishment for them. Easily available colchicum include some Colchicum speciosum hybrids such as The Giant, which is very tall, mauve and white-throated, and
Water Lily, a double pink which is inclined to flop. Another popular bulb is Colchicum autumnale, a smaller, later-blooming white version which also has white stems. Earlier blooms lean over and become a white mat surrounding the later, upright flowers. Garden club plant sales are a good place for gardeners seeking unusual Colchicum bulbs. These include the dwarf Colchicum agrippinum, which has mauve chequered flowers and deep green pointy leaves. Colchicum speciosum has a huge-flowered mauve form but also a rarer (incredibly beautiful)
white one. Colchicum cilicium is fragrant (if you can bend down that far). This is said to come true from seed (but seedlings take up to five years to flower). One of the most prolific bloomers is Lilac Wonder, an assertive pink. Autumn Queen can be found in catalogues and is described as a deep purple. Seed can be found on the soil at the base of the leaves in spring, but collecting it needs care and latex gloves. Colchicum is very poisonous. Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her by email at email@example.com.

◗ Exercise one major muscle group each day. Don’t think you have to do a full-body workout every day. That can seem overwhelming and make it even more difficult for you to stay motivated. Just concentrate on one major muscle group each day, like your legs, chest, back,

core, arms or shoulders. To get the most benefit, you should still do 20 to 30 minutes of cardio each day, but make it fun. Take your bike somewhere you’ve never been before, or try skipping rope and see if it makes you feel like a kid again. ◗ Stay hydrated. When the weather is warm, it’s
important to keep your body cool. Dehydration leads to fatigue and, in extreme cases, heat exhaustion or heat stroke. It’s also best to drink water on a schedule during the summer months – that means before you even feel like you need it. If your body is telling
you you’re thirsty, that means you’re already dehydrated. ◗ Get the children involved in a family game. If it’s commitments with the kids throwing you off track, get them involved. Shaun Karp is a certified personal trainer. For more information call 604-4207800.

Almost 10 years after running a halfmarathon and raising thousands of dollars for leukemia research in memory of her daughter, Marian Lowery is at it again. This time the former New Westminster resident, 62, is aiming to climb the highest mountain in Africa and pull in more than $10,000 in the 2011 Ascent for Alzheimer’s, run by the Alzheimer Society of B.C. “Every year they’ve mounted either one or two teams and the teams get together and train all summer. In September, we’ll be summiting Mount Kilimanjaro,” Lowery said after joining the 2011 team. Lowery said she is inspired to keep herself fit and raise money for good causes as an outlet for the pain and upset that comes from seeing the illnesses in her own family. “It’s the idea that you’re going to com-

bine your personal fitness goals with something that contributes to society in general. In this case it’s the Alzheimer Society,” she said. “My mother died of Alzheimer’s three years ago. It seemed like a good combination.” Lowery said she is aware of tremendous research being done for degenerative neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, but, “that research costs money.” By July, Lowery’s team raised just short of $85,000, and she had exceeded her own goal, bringing in $11,240. “One of the things you can do is just wait for governments to fund research. That’s not a very empowering way to approach one’s life. I think a better approach is to get involved and help the process happen,” she said.

Alberta Magic turns Westerns to gold BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR email@example.com
The Strathmore Magic finally got its gold. After six consecutive trips to the Western Canadian junior fastpitch championships and a silver medal in last year’s final, the Alberta provincial champions came away as the overall winner following a 9-0 victory over the Prince Albert Aces at Squint Lake Park in Burnaby on Sunday. The Magic lost last year’s Western title in a failed 8-6 comeback against the Saskatchewan Cave Lady Diamondbacks. The year before, Strathmore came home with a bronze medal. This season, the Magic made no mistake against the No. 1 Saskatchewan club, dealing the Aces a five-inning mercy rule defeat. “It’s pretty emotional,” said the Magic’s 71-year-old co-head coach Ron Walmsley. “I have a girl who started with me as a midget who nobody wanted. It’s our first Western championship. We have won more silver medals than Christie’s has biscuits. It was their time to win.” After finishing the preliminary round in second place behind B.C. No. 2 Victoria Kaos, Strathmore eked its way into the championship final with a 6-5 win in extra innings over the eventual thirdplace Island team. First base Staci Whitnack got the game-winning hit for the Magic. “(The Magic) is a great, great team. They fight all the time, not against each other, and that’s even better,” said Walmsley, who has

B.C. acting host Ridge Meadows Rage finished in fourth place. Provincial champions Burnaby Hurricanes was sixth overall with a 3-3 record in pool play. “We’re disappointed but the Prairie competition is really hard. You know you’re going to meet them in the finals,” said Josie Bradley, president of Burnaby senior fastpitch and chair of the championship committee. Two of Burnaby’s losses came
against the two finalists Strathmore and Prince Albert in the first two days of tournament play. The Hurricanes also dropped a 9-1 decision to Saskatchewan No. 2 Northwest Vipers on Saturday. “In the games we lost, we left at least 14 girls on base each game. Our problem wasn’t hitting or getting on base, it was finishing it off,” said Bradley. Strathmore’s Katrina Anderson was the top batter, hitting .476 in the qualifying rounds.
Prince Albert’s Laurie Earle was the top pitcher, allowing just eight hits while striking out 22 batters in 18 innings work. Kara Shelly of the Victoria Kaos was named the MVP, batting seven for 27 at the plate, while making seven putouts with no errors. After the success of last week’s Western Canadian hosting, Burnaby Fastpitch is also considering putting its name forward for the senior B men’s and women’s championships next year.
New West gives back lead in junior A ﬁnal BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR email@example.com
A three-minute lapse in the second period proved costly for the junior A New Westminster Salmonbellies. New West gave up five goals in that span of time and went on to lose 10-7 to the Coquitlam Adanacs in Game 3 of the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League final at the Poirier centre on Monday. Coquitlam now leads the best-of-seven final series, 2-1. Trailing 6-1 with just over five minutes gone in the second period, the Salmonbellies scrapped back with three goals on the power play, including extra-man markers from Keegan Bal and Brandon Goodwin in the final minutes of the period. Regan Harding, with two goals in singular

But Coquitlam keeper Stephen Fryer managed to hold the fort, stopping 36 New West shots, while A’s righthander Ben McIntosh counted three of his gamehigh four goals, including the eventual game-winner on his hat-trick tally. Frankie Scigliano had an off night in the New Westminster net. Backup Brandon Mulligan also surrendered a goal after coming in to briefly spell Scigliano early in the middle stanza. “We had a lapse there – four or five mistakes – that cost us the game,” said New Westminster head coach Dan Perreault. “We made mistakes we don’t normally make which is

The Salmonbellies got on the board first and held the A’s to a 4-4 deadlock heading into the final. Negrin factored in on all four New Westminster goals, including the junior ‘Bellies two first-period counters. Scigliano had a solid outing in goal for the Salmonbellies, stopping 39 shots. Last week, New Westminster stole the series opener 7-6 in Coquitlam. Game 4 is tonight (Wednesday) at Queen’s Park Arena.

B.C. eked its way into the gold-medal final with a 3-2 win over Iroquois Nation in the semifinal matchup between the second- and third-place teams. Ontario earned a bye into the championship final. Team B.C., which included New Westminster representatives Nolan Duncan, Max Gerhardt, Nathan Macedo, Ryan Wilkinson and goalie Laiton Manuel, lost to Iroquois 5-4 in the final day of the round robin. B.C. also dropped an earlier 11-3 decision to Ontario on Aug. 3. Gerhardt and Port Coquitlam’s Brodie Gillespie led Team B.C., both with 22 points. Macedo chipped in with 18 points, including a team second-best nine goals. Duncan potted eight goals and 13 points, Wilkinson added six goals and 11 points. Iroquois went on to take the bronze medal, beating Alberta 8-6. Manitoba took the B gold medal with a 6-2 win over Saskatchewan. Quebec beat Nova Scotia for the B bronze. The B.C. midget and peewee box teams both came home with a bronze medal. The B.C. team, including Matthew Shannik and Danny Spagnuolo, got by Alberta 9-8 in double overtime to take the consolation medal, following a 7-4 loss to Team Iroquois in the semifinal Friday. The West Coast reps lost an earlier 7-3 decision to both Iroquois and Ontario in preliminary round play. Shannik finished in a second-place tie with 15 points in B.C. team scoring, including seven goals. Spagnuolo also had seven goals and 11 points. Ontario defeated Iroquois Nation 8-5 in the final.

’Bellies get a wakeup call BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR email@example.com
The Maple Ridge Burrards got a jump on New Westminster and held on to take Game 3 of the Western Lacrosse Association playoff series with a 9-8 win. Maple Ridge led by as much as 7-2 late in the second period before hanging on for the win against the Salmonbellies at Queen’s Park Arena on Sunday. New West still leads the best-of-seven semifinal playoff two games to one. After Corbyn Tao’s opening goal on a power play midway through the first period, Maple Ridge’s Randy Daly quickly tied it up seconds later on a clever unassisted solo effort. He then gave the visitors the lead with a screened shot from the left side that ’Bellies keeper Tyler Richards appeared to not see. Daly, the game’s first star, also assisted on a pair of second-period tallies. Drew Dickie had a strong game in the Burrards’ net, making 35 saves. “We needed to come out with more energy. (New
West) did a good job getting us unfocussed,” said Daly of the first two games. “Our back end did a fantastic job today, and it showed in the shots in the first two periods.” Maple Ridge held a 33-20 advantage in shots through 40 minutes. In the first two games of the series, New West outshot Maple Ridge. “We didn’t come out the way we should have. We came out flat in warmups,” said Tao, who led the ’Bellies with four points, including a hat trick. The first two periods were arguably among the worst this season for the senior Salmonbellies. From the opening shift, New Westminster was seemingly unable to play a simple game of pass and catch. Maple Ridge took advantage of the opportunity and held an 11-3 advantage in shots at one point in the first period. Tao was one of the few Salmonbellies who appeared untouched by the team’s clumsy play. In fact, it was Tao who sparked a mini-resurgence late in the middle period
with his second goal of the game. Tao also helped spark a four-goal rally late in the contest, setting up Martin Cummings at the left crease with a whistling cross-floor pass. He then tallied his third goal off the bench midway through the period to shave the deficit to a pair of goals. Jeff Zywicki got the ’Bellies to within a goal at 15:58 of the third period. But the Burrards held on, missing an empty net opportunity from mid-floor by Garrett McIntosh on a break with less than two minutes left on the clock. Cummings also had a chance go wanting, hitting the far post with a shot at the one-minute mark and Richards on the bench for a sixth attacker. “We need to be more focussed and prepared,” Tao said, adding. “I thought we were physical enough, we just have to be smarter.” Game 4 of the series was played Tuesday (after Record deadlines) in Maple Ridge. Game 4 takes place Thursday at Queen’s Park Arena at 7:45 p.m.

B.C., 5-4 upset losers to Iroquois in Friday’s advancement game to the A final, had finished second overall in the round robin. B.C.’s only loss in the preliminary round was a 6-2 defeat to Ontario.
Burnaby’s Sekanwnee Baker shared the goal-scoring lead with William Malcolm of New Westminster and Joseph Pollack and Robert Hofseth of Coquitlam, all with 10 goals. New West’s Nick Hannay and Erik Maas garnered nine and seven goals, respectively. Quebec won the B final 7-3 over Nova Scotia. Manitoba took third place over Saskatchewan in the consolation B final.

Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can ﬁgure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
