Business company climbs out of red BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER email@example.com
It’s taken almost a decade for the School District No. 40 Business Company to pay back an almost $1-million loan from the New Westminster School District, but next year looks like the time when the loan will be fully repaid. At a Monday evening meeting of the school board, the sole shareholder in the business company, business company chief executive officer Brent Atkinson, announced that the company is repaying $510,263 to the district, along with $9,991
in interest, leaving the outstanding money owing at approximately $189,000. “The good news is I expect the loan to be fully paid off next year,” said Atkinson, who added that the district may be receiving some slightly revised figures at its Tuesday evening regular board meeting (after Record deadlines). School board chair Michael Ewen said Atkinson is to be commended for righting the business company ship. “The board of the business company, and in particular Brent, has turned things around, and the business company has repaid approximately $867,000 in the last

two years,” said Ewen. “That’s a fairly significant number.” Atkinson said if the board had not levied interest on the loan, the loan would already be fully paid off. “I think we have an outstanding balance of around $189,000,” he said, adding the decision to levy interest on the loan was a board decision, in which he has only one vote. The business company was launched after the Liberal government introduced legislation in 2002 that made it possible for school districts to sell the B.C. curriculum overseas.

After complaints from New Westminster parents in 2007, the government changed the law to increase transparency by requiring such measures as arm’s-length directors, annual public meetings and annual reports. In January 2010, the board voted to designate the business company advance as an interest-bearing loan with no fixed repayment term, because the company’s earnings aren’t predictable. Stay tuned to www.royalcityrecord.com on Wednesday for the latest details about the business company’s repayment after Tuesday night’s school board meeting.

City breaks ground for new civic centre BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
A groundbreaking ceremony was held Friday to signal the start of construction on New Westminster’s future civic centre. The City of New Westminster is building a $35-million multi-use civic facility with casino funds known as development assistance compensation. The fourway agreement was signed by the City of New Westminster, the B.C. Lotteries Corporation, the provincial government and Starlight Casino. “The new facility will spur economic development in New Westminster’s downtown while providing a range of amenities to local citizens and visitors alike,” said Ida Chong, the province’s minister of community, sport and cultural development, in a press release. “Our government is pleased to play a part in the developing of this great project for the Royal City.” The city’s portion of the building at Eighth and Columbia will include a 350seat theatre with flexible seating to accommodate a variety of productions, conference and meeting facilities, multipurpose rooms, art studios, an art gallery, tourist information centre, the city’s museum and archives, a restaurant and the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame. “We’re very proud of this project and the role it will play in the revitalization of our historic downtown business district,” said Mayor Wayne Wright. “It’s projects and partnerships like this that provide the new amenities our citizens deserve while generating the economic development we need for the future.” Because the site at the corner of Eighth and Columbia streets is an active construc-

Armed with shovels, officials conducted a ceremonial groundbreaking in a portable dirt pile placed at Hyack Square. “We have tendered the first stage of construction. That will include some
underground site servicing and excavation of the underground parkade,” said Jim Lowrie, the city’s director of engineering. “That involves shoring of the excavation walls.” Lowrie said the excavation work will probably be finished in a few months and
construction of the civic centre building will begin in the new year. The City of New Westminster has partnered with the Uptown Property Group to build an office tower on top of the civic centre at the corner of Columbia and Eighth streets.

If this is true, one has to ask why the heck we aren’t pouring resources into unlocking the earth’s heat rather than considering projects like the Site C dam, the cost of which is already guessed to have almost tripled from its original $3billion estimate. Yes, tapping thermal energy will require deep-drilling technology and some sort of fracking, but so does modern oil and gas drilling. Let’s hope our federal and provincial
governments will see the sense in supporting immediate research into the long-term cost-effectiveness of both forms of energy extraction. There was a time when the only way we could benefit from geothermal energy was through naturally occurring hot springs – the technology has come a long way since then. It’s too bad our policies and perceptions haven’t been able to keep up. In the ongoing discussion on energy, geothermal should be on the table and up for discussion.
B.C. can’t escape global economy IN THE HOUSE KEITH BALDREY
he B.C. government’s new jobs “plan” has a number of good elements to it, but does anyone really believe that given the calamities afflicting the world economy that many of those new jobs will materialize anytime soon? British Columbia does not exist in a bubble and is not immune to the severe ups and downs going on elsewhere. Our economy depends a great deal on world markets, particularly those in the United States, where the economy continues to struggle mightily. To her credit, Premier Christy Clark’s jobs plan – dubbed “Canada Starts Here” – is a relatively modest one that does not set some kind of lofty job creation target. She only promises that B.C. will be either first or second among provinces in economic growth by 2015, which doesn’t necessarily translate into strong growth (just enough to outdistance other provinces affected by the same external problems as B.C.). The details of the plan are fine, as far as they go. More money for the Ridley Terminal in Prince Rupert? Sure, that won’t
hurt. Eight new mines within a few years? Sounds good. Increase our trade with Asia and particularly China? Well, why not? Although her plan contained more nuggets than most observers thought before her big speech last week, they still don’t add up to a huge, expensive initiative. In fact, the guts of her plan are more process-oriented. Cutting red tape (didn’t the B.C. Liberals promise to do just that in 2001?) and speeding up approval processes for industrial projects is the foundation of the jobs plan. The theory, of course, is that if government bureaucracy gets out of the way, investment dollars will begin to flow B.C.’s way in earnest. The trouble with this scenario, however, is that investment dollars around the world may be drying up. Senior statesmen like British Prime Minister David Cameron have expressed gloomy fears of two more years of economic misery, and U.S. President Barack Obama finds himself leading a country that is completely devastated in some regions by huge unemployment levels that show no sign of coming down anytime soon. Europe itself is teetering on the edge of the collapse of its currency system, as Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Ireland lurch toward outright defaults on their massive debts. China has begun
Costly bill a shocking sight Dear Editor:
I am a senior, and I would like to share a frustrating and costly mistake I made while shopping at the Royal City Centre mall. I arrived early for a 9:30 a.m. dentist appointment and parked in the underground lot. After the dentist I made some purchases at the dollar store, lottery booth and Black Bond books. Deciding that I needed lunch and a cup of coffee, I ate at White Spot. From there I made my way to the parking lot and proceeded to back out of my spot, suddenly remembering I needed to go to the bank. I pulled into another spot and crossed the street to the Royal Bank. Not 10 minutes later I was back and on my way home. While driving I noticed what I thought was a flyer under my wiper blade, but when I got ◗Jobs Page 7 home I discovered it was a parking ticket from
Diamond Parking Ltd. for the amount of $61.60 if paid withing 10 days, or $78.40 if paid later, and if not paid within 30 days it would be sent to a collection agency. I was and still am angry, as I try to shop within New Westminster whenever possible. The posted sign states four hours free parking while shopping at Royal City Centre. I feel that additional signage should be added so people know exactly what the parking regulations are. I realize that ignorance is not an excuse, but I would like to warn others so they do not experience the same shock that I did. Anne Marie Gerak, New Westminster

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Clark’s plan makes sense ◗ continued from page 6
Ralston, on a radio call-in show this week, as he tried to explain why the NDP oppose Premier Christy Clark’s investment in the Prince Rupert port expansion and the Kitimat LNG plant, was almost farcical. Basically, the NDP’s argument was that we would be better off paying for people to go to school. OK, so let me get this straight: The NDP’s jobs plan is to spend millions upon millions of taxpayer dollars to educate people for jobs that don’t exist, while simultaneously opposing tax cuts and investments in projects that would actually create jobs that people could actually train for. Way to go, Mr. Dix, you must have stayed up all night coming up with that plan. Like a lot of British Columbians, I don’t miss the days of endless deficits, specialinterest corruption and unemployment that Mr. Dix’s last tenure in government produced. And it looks like he’s not changed one bit since then. Whether it’s finding new and exciting ways to send jobs out of the province, like taxing the pants off people and small businesses, or whether it’s “fresh ideas” like taking the forestry industry back to the 1950s and trying to compete with paper and product manufacturers in the global market, clearly Mr. Dix just doesn’t get it. The NDP were not kicked out of office in 2001 because the people were bored. They were kicked out because they just can’t see past their own noses and make decisions
only in the favour of special interests, not the people’s interest. British Columbia is poised to be a leading economy in the 21st century. Premier Christy Clark gets that fact while Mr. Dix is clearly attempting to capture our hearts and minds by opposing investments in jobs for B.C. Perhaps the NDP is the one in need of an education. Pamela Gardner, Burnaby
pulling back on its international trade to lessen its exposure to external problems. As a result, stock markets are recording spectacular rises and falls (mostly the latter, unfortunately). Collectively, this is not a minor economic hiccup. This has all the earmarks of another global economic crisis, one that may be more serious and more entrenched than the 2008 meltdown. And in the midst of all this comes little B.C., whose gross domestic product is about the same size as the GDP of the states of Louisiana or Alabama, touting a new jobs plan. Ironically, on the same day Clark touted the creation of eight new mines, commodity prices nosedived. That’s a reminder of how fragile things are right now and why assuming investment

Job plan worth the wait
Premier Christy Clark may have had to wait to launch her jobs plan, but it’s been well worth waiting for. Especially the announcement of funding to help get Phase 1 of the Prince Rupert port expansion underway. It’s a key project that will create jobs throughout B.C. for decades. The premier’s vision for B.C. to be the economic engine for a 21st-century Canada is timely and forward-thinking, but clearly something that the neither NDP nor the B.C. Conservative Party seem to get. While NDP leader Adrian Dix talks off the top of his head about training credits for job categories that don’t exist here in B.C., and therefore have no relevance, John Cummins haphazardly flips and flops his way across the province leaving a trail of contradictory policies and statements. B.C. needs new dollars, but how are we going to get them if we simply stand back and watch the world go by, as Mr. Dix and Mr. Cummins seem to be suggesting in their criticism of the premier’s jobs plan? Brian Bonney, Burnaby
dollars are going to magically materialize is not a reasonable bet right now. Further hampering B.C.’s economy in the short-term is the lingering hangover that goes with getting rid of the HST. The housing and home repair sectors, in particular, may be hard hit because many consumers will put off building a house or doing major renovations until the tax is gone, more than a year from now. Now, none of this is to say Clark and her government shouldn’t do anything to create jobs. In fact, her government is already engaged in a fairly hefty stimulus exercise, spending almost $10 billion over the next few years to build such things as the Port Mann Bridge, the South Fraser Perimeter Road, new schools and health facilities, and massive upgrades to B.C. Hydro’s infrastructure. The jobs
that flow from that kind of capital spending will likely dwarf anything created by the new jobs plan, at least until the world economy is on much, much safer and firm footing. The best thing Clark can hope for from her plan may actually be more about using it to turn political discourse in this province towards the issues of the economy and employment. Even if there’s a downturn, it may work to Clark’s advantage. The NDP always seems to struggle in winning the trust of the voters on the critical issue of managing the province through difficult economic times. Canada Starts Here may be a catchy slogan, but until the world economy settles down it may be little more than that. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global B.C.

Champ: Top, Travis Chastkavich shows off the “rock” that won him ﬁrst place in the 200-competitor tournament, while Douglas College mascot Roary plays a losing “scissors.” Bottom, Chastkavich plays his ﬁnal, winning, hand in the actual tournament. He won tickets to a Canucks game. lege, as a means of getting students to mix together and have fun on campus to combat the image Douglas has of being just a “commuter college.” “Because Douglas is a commuter school, we don’t have residences or anything like that but we can still build a community like schools with residences sometimes have,” he said. Fraser-Dauphinee said the turnout
was slightly less than he had hoped but getting students involved in their school takes time and Douglas is on the right track. “It’ll be the first of a number of events this year that is geared towards getting the students out for something that is fun and engaging,” he said. www.twitter.com/ BrentRichter
Don’t even think about challenging Douglas College student Travis Chastkavich for the last slice of pizza or the front seat of the car. When it comes to the universal arbitrator of rock paper scissors, he’s basically unbeatable. Chastkavich, a 23-year-old, took first place in a 200-competitor, singleround elimination, tournament in Douglas College’s gym last Tuesday afternoon. Chastkavich’s strategy is something of a double psych-out, baffling his opponent by repeating the same play over and over until the opponent is convinced he’ll change it up, and then repeating the play once more. “I like to go rock, usually more than once,” he said. “In my last game that won the match, I did rock four times in a row. It’s kind of psychological. You think a player is going to do something. I just didn’t change anything. He thought I was going to do paper so he did scissors and I beat him with rock.” The strategy worked, but instead of “riding shotgun” or getting the last cold beer, the reward was four tickets to an upcoming Vancouver Canucks game. “It was pretty intense,” he said. “I knew Canucks tickets were on the line and I really wanted to win them so I tried my best.” And this isn’t the first time’s Chastkavich has shown his rock paper scissors prowess. He won another rock paper scissors tournament organized by his friends when he was younger. That Chastkavich and his girlfriend will be taking two of the Canucks tickets is a given, but how to decide who gets the other two? The 23-year-old sports science student came up with a fitting plan. “I decided to choose four of my closest friends who have girlfriends and last night we got them to compete against each other in couples’ games and the couple that won the tournament is coming with us,” he said. The Douglas tourney was organized by Scott Fraser-Dauphinee, campus life coordinator for the col-

Local railway case in Are you a local business? federal appeal court Need Cash Fast?
BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
About 10 New Westminster residents attended the Federal Court of Appeal last week to listen to arguments put forward by rail companies and the Canadian Transportation Agency. A press release from the Quayside Community Board states that the case will decide whether or not the Canadian Transportation Agency has the authority to issue rules and guidelines for rail company operations at Quayside. James Crosty, president of the Quayside Community Board, said lawyers for both sides presented their arguments and a decision is expected to be released within three months. He’s “cautiously optimistic” that the Court of Appeal will rule in the Canadian Transportation Authority’s favour. Win or lose, Crosty said the legal challenge is a win for communities, as it shows they can file a complaint and make something happen. “We gave people hope that you can file complaints against a rail company,” he said. “We have these guys in court. They are deciding whether the Canadian Transportation Authority can make a ruling.” The Quayside Community Board believes that the outcome of the case will be of enormous, nationwide significance because other communities in Canada are impacted by rail noise. “After being plagued for years by

late night rail noise, the residents in and around the Quayside community of New Westminster are tired and fed up. Representing other New Westminster communities such as Queensborough, downtown and Sapperton, the Quayside Community Board has spearheaded this challenge,” said the press release. “They’re tired of having their sleep interrupted and taking extreme measures, such as taking medications, to sleep as a result of late night railway noise and vibration from the four rail companies that operate quite literally in their backyard.” The Quayside Community Board is frustrated by the lack of progress they’ve had in resolving concerns with CN Rail, CP Rail, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway and Southern Railway. As a result of a complaint filed in 2008, the Canadian Transportation Agency assisted the Quayside Community Board in reaching a mediated settlement with rail companies operating in the rail yard adjacent to the Quayside neighbourhood. The intent of that settlement was to reduce, and ultimately eliminate, the unreasonable noise and vibrations being generated by nighttime operations, for the benefit of the community. In April 2010, the Quayside Community Board filed a new noise and vibration complaint. It asked that the Canadian Transportation Agency issue an operating guide for the rail companies restricting operations in the Quayside rail yard to between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m., as the railways were not following the mediated settlement.

Larry Ho, executive general manager of New Westminster’s Starlight Casino, raised some serious funds, donned his best “Captain Bacon” superhero duds and rappelled 20 storeys down the side of a Vancouver skyscraper, all in the name of charity. Ho, along with Team Starlight teammate Jeffrey Price and New Westminster resident Janice Bannister, took part in the Easter Seals Drop Zone event, Sept. 13. To enter, participants had to raise at least $1,500 for Easter Seals House and Easter Seals camps for children with disabilities. Ho said he learned about the event while having lunch with an employee at the casino. “One of my security officers had participated with this foundation a few years ago. I thought this would be a great opportunity for our property to help out children with disabilities in B.C. Starlight was one of the top donors of the 2011 event, and we look forward to providing continued support to the foundation,” he said in an email. Ho also managed to be the top individual fundraiser for the event, bringing in $4,500.88. But stepping out over the edge and looking 61 metres down at West Hastings Street below didn’t exactly come easy. “I definitely had second, third and fourth thoughts prior to rappelling down the building,” he said. “I had quite a bit of adrenaline pumping through me before and after and during the descent. Terrified of heights, but conquered it that day.” As for why he chose Captain Bacon as his superhero alter ego, well, it turns out he just likes bacon. “I’ve been a fan of bacon for quite some time. I have everything from a bacon board game to bacon T-shirts,” Ho said.

MP wants ban on shark ﬁnning BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly is taking aim at the “brutal” practice of shark finning. Millions of sharks die annually after having their fins cut off and being thrown back into the ocean. Sharks need to be constantly moving to get oxygen from the water, and they can’t swim without their fins. As global shark populations plummet, Donnelly is consulting with stakeholders to develop legislation to stop the importation of these illegal shark fins into Canada. “The decline of sharks globally is a conservation crisis that needs immediate attention,” said Donnelly, the federal NDP’s fisheries critic. “The

Vivo: Discovering the joy of music

The singers are looking forward to another busy season this year, particularly since it’s the choir’s 10th season. Along with their traditional Christmas concert, Vivo will also be hosting a couple of special events during the year. In February, the choir will host a B.C.
Choral Federation workshop for kids’ choirs, culminating in a multi-choir concert at Massey Theatre. Wilson Unger is hoping to see as many as 150 young singers coming to town from around the region, and perhaps from farther afield in the province, to work with a professional clinician and then sing in the joint concert. Then, for the spring concert, the choir is hoping to see many of its alumni return to sing an anniversary concert with the current choir. Vivo is accepting new members for the 2011/12 season. The choir is open to all children, grades 2 and up, from any location. See www.vivochildrenschoir.ca or email email@example.com.

A SPECIAL SUPPLEMENT TO THE RECORD
Get knitting for a good cause HEALTH EDUCATION CAMPAIGN IS ON NOW The Click for Babies campaign, which is running throughout North America and is being organized here in B.C. by B.C. Children’s Hospital, is aimed at raising awareness about infant crying to help lower the incidence of shaken baby syndrome and infant abuse. The campaign encourages knitters and crocheters to donate baby caps in any and all shades of purple, which are then going to be handed out to new B.C. babies along with a video and booklet as part of the “Period of Purple Crying” program. The caps are being accepted until Oct. 26, either by being sent to the hospital, or at a number of yarn shops around the Lower Mainland that are accepting donations on its behalf. They’ll then be handed out starting in November, to new babies and their families at hospitals around the province, including Burnaby Hospital and Royal Columbian Hospital. Claire Yambao, an organizer with the program, says each hospital with a labour and delivery ward gets a portion of the caps for the babies born there. “The caps are distributed to all birthing hospitals in B.C. Last year we collected 4,000 caps and each birthing hospital received a one month supply,” she said. “We are hoping to meet or beat 4,000 this year.” The Period of Purple Crying program was rolled

out in B.C. hospitals several years ago, with the intent of educating new parents on what has been dubbed “PURPLE” crying – each of the letters in the word purple stand for a different facet of newborn crying which can be particularly challenging for parents. P is for “peak of crying,” which is at around two months, U is for unexpected, R is for resists soothing, P is for pain-like face, L is for long-lasting and E is for evening. The information also includes tips for parents on how to handle the crying, which can be profoundly stressful. As well, during a yarn swap this week in Vancouver, a free table will be set up where people can donate purple yarn to the Click for Babies campaign. The Vancouver Yarn Swap is set for tomorrow, Sept. 29 at 6 p.m. at the Vancouver Alpen Club, 4875 Victoria Dr. For more information, see www.clickforbabies.org or go to www.dontshake.ca for information on local drop-offs for caps. Follow Purple Crying on Twitter at @PurpleCrying. Readers who are taking part in this campaign are encouraged to send in photos of their “purple cap” efforts by email to email@example.com. www.twitter.com/ChristinaMyersA – CHRISTINA MYERS
All smiles: The Click for Babies campaign is on now, with knitters and crocheters around the province encouraged to send in purple caps for newborns as part of an educational program for new parents on shaken baby syndrome.

A closer look at the aging brain Strauch, the New York Times’ deputy science editor and author of the Secret Life of the Grown-Up Brain (Penguin), to explain.
What causes memory loss?
So memory loss is not due to dying brain cells? They used to think that we lost 30 per cent of our brain cells. Now, in counting them, they found we don’t lose them. There are recent ﬁndings, too, that show how the middle-aged brain, rather than giving up and giving in, adapts. As we age, our brains power up, not down, to solve problems.
How does the middle age brain “power up?” As researchers at Duke
University and elsewhere have found, people in middle age begin to use two sides of their brains instead of one – a trick called bilateralization. As we age, the two sides of our brains become more intertwined, letting us see bigger patterns, have bigger thoughts. Those who recruit the strength of their brains’ powerful frontal cortex, in particular, develop what scientists call ‘cognitive reserve,’ thought to be a buffer against the effects of aging.
Does bilateralization occur in all aging brains? It’s not the weakest brains that do this but the most robust ones. A series of recent studies has found that it is the most

capable who resort to this trick. It’s as if the best and the brightest older brains simply refuse to give in. Cheryl Grady at the University of Toronto recently found it was those adults with the most education who tapped into this premier brain region. Julie Beun Postmedia News

augh lines, a few grey hairs and those hardto-lose pounds – along with a frustrating inability to recall names or what you did last Tuesday – are all signs of middle age. And while memory problems may seem inevitable, new research shows that the middle-age brain still has a few surprises of its own.We asked Barbara
The processing speed in our brains slows down from our 20s onward, we can lose some neurotransmitters and get distracted more easily.The truth is, by midlife, most of our brains show some fraying around the edges, and names are often the ﬁrst edge to go ragged.The names are not technically gone. Research into the cellular activity of where most memories are processed indicates that much of what we learn in the form of chemical markers is not missing, it’s just at the bottom of the pile.
For the most part, it’s a problem of retrieval, not storage. If you forget your husband’s boss’s name is Ed, it might be embarrassing at an ofﬁce party. But it’s not Alzheimer’s.

Approach life with mindfulness HEALTHWISE
DR. DAVIDICUS WONG
ost of us approach our health – and our lives – reactively. Almost all hospital and clinic visits are in response to a problem: an accidental injury, worrisome symptoms or disease out of control. Yet most of us recognize that a planned, proactive approach to our health would be better. In addition to recognizing and addressing our personal health risks based on personal and family history and age, those of us with chronic health conditions can work with our health-care team to master self-management. Likewise, a mindful approach can help us bet-
ter manage the rest of our lives. What are you are doing at this moment … and why? What meaning or purpose underlies your actions? If what you are doing is automatic, reactive and done without attention or reflection, attend to the present, acknowledging your emotions, your thoughts and your actions. Are your actions aligned with your thoughts and feelings? Ask yourself, “Is what I am doing bringing me closer or further from my highest values and greatest goals, closer or further from my true self?” We all fall into autopilot, acting without thinking and falling into mindless routine. We can also move reactively one detour at a time until we find ourselves far from where we intended to be. How did we get here? Were our actions motiv-
ated by a reactive way of thinking, or were we carried by our emotions? We are ultimately judged by our actions though they often don’t reflect who we really are. But if we align our actions throughout each day with our moral compasses, we can be comforted that we acted according to our highest motivations. We don’t choose the circumstances of our lives and we cannot dictate the outcome of our efforts, but we can choose how we will act – how we respond to our world and in which direction we will grow. Just as our emotional states and our concerns can be tempered with the perspective of time – your whole lifetime, our actions each day may be tempered and redirected by the perspective of our highest values. The world is ever changing, and we are perpetually moving closer or further.
Consider what you are doing in the important areas of your life, including your relationships, home life, work and health. Are your actions in each aligned with your goals and values? If not, why? Life – because it is ever changing – requires frequent rebalancing and realignment in order to stay on course. Your health requires these regular pulse checks and attention to mindful action. For more on mindfulness meditation, read my posts at davidicuswong. wordpress.com and listen to my latest Positive Potential Medicine podcast at wgrnradio.com in which I also discuss What You Need to Know About Prescription Drugs and What’s Inside the Doctor’s Head.

Grow your own garlic for use throughout winter BRANCHING OUT ANNE MARRISON
eople who love using garlic in recipes but are shocked at its cost in winter need to know that growing their own cloves is very doable, even in a small space. Where flower gardens are the only option, a few plants of gar-
lic fit right in because they deter aphids from infesting neighbouring plants. As well, garlic is completely hardy, slug-resistant, and needs almost no watering because it makes most of its growth during our nine-month wet season. What it does demand is sun and well-drained rich soil. Raised beds amended with compost or composted manure are a perfect garlicgrowing environment. October is the ideal month to plant this crop, and bulb clusters will soon be available in local garden
centres. Another useful source is farmers’ markets where varieties are grown close to home. There are three main kinds. The largest cloves come from hard-neck types such as Persian Star, Music or Red Russian. These throw up a stiff, bulbil-producing stalk. Soft-neck types such as Greek White or Chinese have smaller, extremely long-keeping cloves and braidable stalks. Then there’s serpent garlic, which has long stems that curl in circles at the top.
THANKS FOR VOTING US #1 NEW WEST!
Sometimes first-time gardeners are unsure how to plant garlic. They should break the bulb clusters apart and plant individual cloves with the pointed end up, two or three inches deep. Mulching with leaves or perhaps grass clippings keeps the soil moist and deters weeds. Because garlic needs to grow from October to about August, it doesn’t fit well into succession plantings. Also the garlic bed should be rotated. This means the old garlic area should have no garlic, shal-
long stems can be left to continue photosynthesis. In July, when weather usually becomes very dry, the garlic bed can be left unwatered so that the plants die down naturally. Leaves and stems go yellow, then brown and, after a few weeks, keel over. At this point, it’s time to dig up the cloves. Depending on the weather, these may be cured for a week in sun with a cover put over at night, or just dried inside if weather is showery. Send gardening questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.

lot or onion crops in it for three years. An alternative is digging out the top layer of old soil and replacing with compost. The old soil could go into summer planter pots, fill low places in lawns or help raise a flower bed. About June, garlic develops scapes. These look like flower buds with long points and they should be removed immediately while still very young. They are delicious sliced up in stir fries. If you leave them alone, your garlic cloves will be smaller. The

Hyacks claim big Homecoming victory BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER email@example.com
Tommy Robertson was nervous on Friday night, but that certainly didn’t show as the Grade 10 quarterback led the New Westminster Hyacks to a 27-9 Homecoming win over the visiting Mt. Boucherie Bears of Kelowna. Robertson, in his first varsity start for the Hyacks after splitting time last week in a loss against Terry Fox Secondary, had a mistake-free eight-of-12 for 101 yards passing and 16 carries for 67 yards, including a one-yard quarterback sneak in the second quarter, on his way to player of the game honours. “It was really awesome,” said the lanky passer who may have another two opportunities for Homecoming glory. “We had a great first drive that settled our nerves, and that was a good win for us.” That first drive was a nine-play, 74yard march down the field highlighted by the shifty running of Grade 11 back Aldrin Asuncion, who broke a 35-yard-run down the right sideline that should have been a touchdown if he hadn’t stepped out of bounds. Asuncion made up for it several plays later with a three-yard TD run to give the Hyacks a lead they would never relinquish. Asuncion would score again in the second quarter, from 11 yards out and would finish with 142 yards on nine carries. “I expect to make big plays every time I get the ball,” said Asuncion. “The win means a lot to us because after last week, we needed to play a better game. … And to win at Homecoming, that makes it even more special.” The Hyacks’ final touchdown came in the third quarter, when Robertson hit Kevin Sabau from 13 yards out to cap a seven-play, 70-yard drive. The Bears got their scores in the most unconventional manner. Punting from deep in their own zone in the third quarter, Peter Briker took a botched snap and managed to elude the Hyack rush and scampered 90 yards up the right sideline to cut the New Westminster lead to 14-7. The final two Bears points came in the fourth quarter after the Bears were stopped inside the Hyacks ten-yard-line. The Hyacks took over on downs, but the Bears stuffed the Hyacks and forced a safety for the final score of the game. Asuncion said head coach Farhan Lalji challenged his players during practice. “We know we have to work even harder and we have to continue stepping up our game,” said Asuncion. And the 5-4, 150-yard running back had even kinder words for his quarterback.

“There was another great crowd for Homecoming, and it was nice for our players to get a win in front of all of our alumni and fans. They’ll always remember it.” Now with two home wins under their belt, the Hyacks hope to make it three on Friday at 2 p.m. when the visiting Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers come across the river. “We will be playing a very big and physical Lord Tweedsmuir team, so we need to match a completely different level of physicality,” said Lalji, who added that the early start will allow people to catch both the high school game and the first game at the new B.C. Place that night. In the junior varsity game played earlier Friday night, the Hyacks lost to Mt. Boucherie 39-21. Also during the senior game, a streaker ran halfway across the field as the Hyacks were trying to convert their final touchdown. The streaker managed to climb over a fence and was last seen running toward the Moody Park Arena. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau
Local fans sending support to Morneau BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s been two frustrating injury-plagued seasons for New Westminster native and Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau, but his local fans haven’t given up on him. On Saturday, Oct. 1, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Justin Morneau
Field in Moody Park, the New Westminster Baseball organization is hosting a get-together where the group will unveil its newly created “Get Well Soon” banner that it plans on sending to Morneau. “Justin has done so much for this organization. This is just us showing him that we appreciate his support and he’s in our
thoughts,” Ron Suffron, president of New Westminster Baseball, said in a press release. Morneau has long been a supporter and sponsor of the organization. Each year, he donates new batting gloves that are distributed to kids on baseball season’s opening day. Morneau also donated the money that the organization has
used as seed funds for the Justin Morneau scholarships, which are awarded at the end of each baseball season to three players who need financial support to pursue their post-secondary studies. On Saturday, the banner will be at the field and all fans of Morneau are invited to come down to the park and sign the banner wishing him a speedy
recovery. In the event of rain, the banner will be under cover in the batting cage. The event will also feature a hot dog barbecue. Morneau, who sustained a concussion that ended his 2010 season, recently underwent surgery to remove a cyst from his knee and a bone spur from his ankle. Those injuries ended his 2011 season.

Hyacks triumph over Burnaby
BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER email@example.com
New Westminster bested Burnaby three times in football action Sunday at Ryall Park in Queensborough. The peewee Royal City Hyacks won big, routing Burnaby 37-0. The 10- and 11-year-olds got touchdowns from Kinsale Philip, Sammy Sidhu, Shaye Rathjen, Lucas Sabau, Nate Hardwick and Phoenix Bourrier. Defensively, the Hyacks were dominant in not allowing a single Burnaby first down. The Hyacks also created numerous turnovers, with Isaac Hughes recovering a pair of fumbles deep in Burnaby territory and Christian Roadilla and David Osho pouncing on others. Sidhu had a strong all-around game, with a score on offense, a recovery of a kickoff on special teams and a fumble recovery on defence. The junior bantam Hyacks also won, keeping their undefeated 4-0 record with a lopsided 50-0 shutout win over the Lions. The 12- and 13-year-olds got a great performance from Joshua Hardwick, who rambled for his first rushing touchdown of the season. Jamie Shiho also scored a on 30-yard punt return. The atom orange Hyacks also registered a big win, a 38-0 thrashing of the Lions. The eight- and nine-yearolds got touchdowns from Andros Dancey and Lucas Burton, with strong running from backs Tyler McRae and Jordan Freeland. Graham Armstrong and Luke Perizzolo made key tackles on the defensive side of the ball. In other Royal City Hyack football action, the atom black team fell 26-0 to North Surrey. The six- and seven-year-old flag Hyacks fell 16-7 to North Surrey.

Clan looks to snap four-game losing streak BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
A road trip through Idaho and Montana proved fruitless for the SFU Clan women’s soccer team as they dropped two matches this weekend to American opposition. On Saturday, the Clan fell 1-0 to Northwest Nazarene University, their fourth straight loss, on a heartbreaking last minute goal by Julianne Steele. Steele scored in the 89th minute, on a shot from 15 yards out
that rippled the right side of the Clan net. The goal came against the run of play, as the Clan put all kinds of pressure on Northwest Nazarene, outshooting the home side 7-2 in the second half. “Soccer’s not always a fair game and it’s hard to lose a match like this. Our team played a very good game, and things just didn’t go our way today. I feel we outplayed them and we outchanced them, but we just couldn’t find the back of the net. I’m really happy with the work our team is putting in. We’re
going to go home, keep working hard and keep improving,” Clan head coach Shelley Howieson said in a press release. The loss comes only days after the Clan was beaten 4-1 by Montana State University Billings. The home squad opened the scoring when Jaucelyn Richter received a pass through the 18yard box off a throw-in. Richter put the shot into the near post to give her team a 1-0 lead. It was Richter’s fifth goal of the season and was the only tally
of the first half. The Clan tied the game early in the second half when Anna Brancati scored from 15 yards out into the lower left corner of the net. But Montana State responded less than 10 minutes later when Jennifer Larsen scored her first goal of the season, heading a corner kick into the back of the net in the 61st minute. The home side got insurance markers in the 79th and 85th minutes to salt away the win that now moves them to 6-1-1 on the
season. “The elevation here does make this a difficult place to play, and I think it may have contributed a little to our slow start,” Howieson said in a press release. “Having said that, we have been playing some very good soccer, but small breakdowns have hurt us.” The women hope to get back on the winning track at home when they host the Saint Martin’s Saints at Fox Field this Thursday night at 7 p.m. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau
SFU squad falls at home to Humboldt State SFU will try for a win against Central Washington BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER email@example.com
A highlight reel run from Bo Palmer was the only shining moment for the SFU Clan men’s football team Saturday as they dropped a 35-7 decision to the Humboldt State University Lumberjacks at Fox Field. Lumberjacks quarterback Mike Proulx threw three touchdowns, including one on the first drive of the game as the visitors maintained a perfect 3-0 record (2-0 in the
Greater Northwest Athletic Conference). SFU falls to 1-3 (0-3 in the GNAC). “I thought we were physical today. They are big in size and have a lot of experience,” Clan head coach Dave Johnson said in a press release. “They are a little more athletic on special teams which played a bit of a role. I think as a team we need to focus on each play. “We are not old enough or mature enough to take in the whole picture. Our guys played with spirit and passion. There are some positives there, but we have some things to address.” After J.J. Latu returned the opening kickoff 78 yards, Proulx connected with
Chris Bolt in the end zone for the touchdown to give the Lumberjacks an early lead. Bolt took another short pass from Proulx into the end zone to start the second quarter to give HSU a 14-0 lead. Running back Lyndon Rowells had a strong game as he earned the first down with a 44-yard rush and then followed that with a 16-yard rush into the end zone to give the visitors a three-touchdown lead. Palmer’s spectacular run brought the Clan to within two touchdowns, as he took a handoff from quarterback Trey Wheeler for a 68-yard touchdown after he found an opening on the left side of the Lumberjacks’ defense. But the Lumberjacks countered quickly,
as Proulx launched a pass to Victor Spencer to restore the 21-point lead. Proulx added a touchdown for insurance late in the third quarter as he executed a quarterback draw to give the Lumberjacks the final 35-7 margin. Proulx went 25-for-44 with 262 passing yards and three touchdowns. Wheeler was 9-for-19 with 50 passing yards. Palmer rushed for 148 yards on 23 carries for SFU while Rowells rushed for 136 yards on 27 carries for the Lumberjacks. SFU will attempt to get their first GNAC win this Saturday on the road when they take on Central Washington in Ellensburg, Washington at 1 p.m. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau
