FROM FIRST LOVES TO FAVOURITE TEACHERS – CITY SCHOOL A TROVE OF MEMORIES
Herbert’s 100: If these halls could talk BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER
School colours: École Herbert Spencer Elementary teacher Emily MacLeod, left, and principal Tracy Fulton show their school pride with T-shirts from MacLeod’s days as a student at Spencer. The school celebrates its 100th anniversary this year.
École Herbert Spencer Elementary School’s principal says she knows the torture of young love when she sees it in her students. Tracy Fulton has been there. “I have a lot of sympathy when our little kids in Grade 1 fall in love with each other, and the girls chase them around the playground, and they want a kiss. … I can really relate,” Fulton says, laughing as she tells about the times she ran after her now-husband Jack, who was then just a terrified first grader. “I probably pinned him to some tree and kissed him,” she says, “because little girls do that. I don’t have that memory, but I know they do that. “It was pretty much love at first sight,” she says, smiling at the memory of little Jack. “He was the cutest freckle-faced kid you ever saw.” Fulton went from being a lovestruck Spencer student in the 1960s to a teacher and now head of the school that is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Memories – like Fulton’s and many others – will be on display at the

Residents balk at six-lane river crossing email@example.com
The City of New Westminster continues to seek input from residents about the Pattullo Bridge, but many citizens oppose plans to build a six-lane crossing from New Westminster to Surrey. The City of New Westminster held two forums about its master transportation plan on May 3, with 120 people attending an afternoon session at Century House and more than 200 people attending an evening
session at the Justice Institute of B.C. Jim Lowrie, the city’s director of engineering, said the city sought input on its overall master transportation plan and options for the Pattullo Bridge, but it’s fair to say most of the people attending the meeting wanted to talk about the fate of the bridge. TransLink is currently considering plans for the construction of a new Pattullo Bridge. It has proposed four alignments of a six-lane bridge that would be built near the existing bridge.
“I would characterize the comments we heard as being opposed to the sixlane replacement option,” Lowrie told The Record. “That was a fairly predominant theme.” New Westminster city council wrote to TransLink April 30 stating that it doesn’t accept TransLink’s consultation and decision-making process, noting that decisions about the alignment, number of lanes and connecting road systems have been made without broader consultation and understanding of local community issues and

RESIDENTS ARE COLLECTING ITEMS TO BE PLACED IN QUEENSBOROUGH TIME CAPSULE
Memories reﬂect centre’s importance C
arla Brown’s wedding invitation will be among the memorabilia contained in a time capsule at Queensborough Community Centre. Brown was searching for a place to have her wedding when she saw the community centre in a park setting and noticed its big deck. “It was beautiful,” she said of her July 18, 1992 wedding at the community centre. Brown and her husband were so smitten with THERESA MCMANUS Queensborough that they moved to the community within two years of their wedding. Since then, they’ve celebrated many events at the centre, including most of their kids’ birthdays, baby showers and Carla’s 40th birthday. “Anything you can think of that is normal, community bonding is done here at the centre,” she said. “Family dinners, family gatherings.” Last summer, work got underway on a $7.67-million expansion and improvement project to the Queensborough Community Centre. Since the centre opened in 1978, the community has grown – creating a need for more community amenities in Queensborough. Renee Chadwick, manager of the Queensborough Community Centre, said construction is going well and is on schedule. The project is aiming to be complete by December. Because the Queensborough Day celebrations that are normally held in May have had to be cancelled this year because of construction, planning is underway for a May Memories event. Community members are encouraged to attend the free tea that’s being held on Sunday, May 27 from 1 to 3 p.m. and bring items for a time capsule being compiled in honour of the centre’s history. “We are asking families, neighbours and friends to share their stories about the centre, bring any memorabilia, whether it is black-and-white photos, receipts,” Chadwick said. In addition, memories are also being collected on a memory card where people will write the date of their first visit to the centre and what it meant to them. “That will go into a memory box,”

Memories: Carla Brown shows her wedding invitation from 1992, which will become part of a time capsule that’s being put together in honour of the Queensborough Community Centre’s history. The centre hosts a May Memories event May 27. Chadwick said about the card. “We are collecting them and will be putting some of them into the capsule.” Chadwick said the vision of the time capsule and the memory card is to capture the importance of the community centre in Queensborough. “It’s a very sacred place for people,” she said. “With our new centre, the spirit of this community will go through it without a doubt.” Brown, chair of the Queensborough Special Programs Committee, said it’s “beyond brilliant” that the centre is being expanded. She’s looking forward to May Memories and encourages community members to attend the event that’s being sponsored by the Queensborough Community Centre and Queensborough Special Programs
Committee. The new 13,180-square-foot expansion the Queensborough Community Centre will include space for a licensed daycare, an expanded fitness centre, a public library branch, police offices and multi-use activity spaces. “The construction is going well,” Chadwick said. “We are actually going to be closing part of our building starting mid-June.” When the closure takes effect, the office will be relocated to the community centre’s lobby. People will still be able to pay their water and sewer bills at the centre. “We will still have washroom facilities,” Chadwick said. “We still have our community library and places to sit.” The importance of the facility to the Queensborough community was evident
when it was closed for several months following a fire in November 2007. “People of this community were lost,” Chadwick said. “They had a place to connect with people.” This September, the majority of activities taking place in the centre will be put on hold to allow the final stages of construction to take place. “We will continue to offer programs through the elementary school and the middle school,” Chadwick said. “We will also create a space in a multi-purpose room where people can still bump into each other and pay their bills.” The Queensborough Community Centre is located at 920 Ewen Ave. For more information about May Memories, call 604-525-7388. www.twitter.com/TheresaMcManus
‘Soup Nazi’ returns to New West for lacrosse fundraiser
The Soup Nazi is returning to the Royal City to help raise funds for local lacrosse teams. Larry Thomas, who was nominated for an Emmy Award for his role as the Soup Nazi on Seinfeld,

Columbia St., on Saturday, May 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thomas made the phrase “No soup for you” famous on the TV show, uttering those words and ejecting people from the restau-

Clark said the Liberals need a name But some are suggesting that a name change is simply a way to get rid of old “that’s as inclusive as possible. We are a free-enterprise party that consists of baggage and give voters a way to forget people with independent minds from all or forgive the “old” Liberals. across the political spectrum. The thing Whatever the motive – it merely
makes Clark and the current Liberals look desperate. Currently, one of those “independent minds” – John van Dongen – is launching a court action trying to get at sealed information on the B.C. Rail political corruption trial which saw Dave Basi and Bob Virk allowed to avoid repaying the government for an estimated $6 million in legal fees. The former Liberal minister, who is now with the Conservatives, is using his own money to try and get at the info. Legal pundits say the odds are low he’ll succeed. But sometimes judges
choose to lean towards justice and interpret the finer points of law accordingly. We hope so. In any case, Clark can’t be pleased that the B.C. Rail case continues to have legs. But she has only herself to blame. If she had opened an investigation into the whole sordid B.C. Rail mess when she took over, she could have truly signalled to voters that she was a “fresh” start and someone who wouldn’t put up with the usual political coverups. Alas, now she’s resorting to “rebranding” – a rather unimaginative tactic.
B.C. vs. Ottawa: It could get ugly IN THE HOUSE
fter more than a decade of fairly good relations, things are likely to get a bit ugly between the federal government and the B.C. government. With the prospect of Adrian Dix and the NDP taking over the reins of government looking more and more likely, the stage is being set for a clash of ideologies on a number of issues. Chief among them is environmental protection and, more specifically, the proposed Enbridge pipeline in Northern British Columbia. While the federal government’s weakening of the environmental process is a cause for concern for New Democrats, it is the pipeline that really drives them up the wall. Dix and the NDP caucus are adamantly opposed to the project, and the Harper government is just as determined to see it come to fruition. Last week, the NDP caucus wrote an 11-page letter to the joint review panel for the project, articulating its opposition to the pipeline. They cited a variety of concerns, including fears the project could lead to a massive oil spill. This wasn’t just a throwaway
position that could conceivably be changed later. This was a detailed, point-by-point rejection of arguably the number 1 industrial priority of the Harper government. The importance the federal government is placing on the Enbridge pipeline cannot be overstated. It considers the moving of products from Alberta’s oil sands to Asian markets as a cornerstone of the country’s economic strategy for years to come. Further evidence of the Tories’ attachment to the pipeline project is its strange determination to paint the environmental movement as some sort of deranged cult financed by mysterious international sources. This kind of demonization is going to be laughed at in British Columbia, where the importance of environmental protection cuts a wide swath across all party lines. This is the province that produced Greenpeace, after all, and it is where the environmental movement successfully forced massive changes in forest practices, among other things. Environmental protection is a value ingrained in many British Columbians, and it’s not surprising that opinion polls show there is more opposition to the Enbridge pipeline than support for it in this province. A big chunk of NDP supporters also hold strong environmental values and will be particularly offended by the Harper government’s tactics. The federal
Enough of board ‘sanctimony’
Re: District might bring lawyer to parent meeting, and Legal bills keep on rising for school district, The Record, May 4. Enough of the sanctimony, Trustee Ewen. Who is supposed to believe your statement: “she can contact the board, and we will answer her concerns”? You are doubtlessly aware that Kal Randhawa and Lisa Chao have made written submissions and questioned the board at its last three monthly meetings and were not satisfied with the handling of their concerns. And we now learn that at Randhawa and Chao’s upcoming May 14 parent meeting, the district may be growing its legal bill by bringing a lawyer. Since when have lawyers been experts in furthering student achievement? What is apparent watching events unfold is that ◗Politics Page 7 individual student achievement has been subjugated
by pumped-up egos, faux benevolence and who knows what else. The issue is no longer about what is best for the student. But why have student interests been subjugated? Because they can.

Individual students can be acquired or dispatched and don’t matter beyond the fact that he/she adds one to the district’s 6,095 headcount. In the business of education, total headcount rather than achievement determines the district’s bottom line. Achievement doesn’t funds jobs. That’s why the specifics of any single student’s achievement will never be given its due. Note that the board and district will only receive parent appeals and complaints singly. And getting back to the question about the lawyer

Civic centre risk too great
Re: City takes on $94-million project alone, The Record, May 2. I am against the city taking on the office tower project. I agree with Coun. Chuck Puchmayr: the risk is too great – $11 million in additional borrowing for the civic centre and parking, and then $33 million for the office tower is a staggering amount of debt to take on. New Westminster does not have the tax base to support this debt should the project not work out well. Governments should not be in the business of property development; that is not where their expertise lies. Large government projects have a history of failure and leaving the taxpayer to foot the bill for years to come. Once a government is involved, projects tend to change with pressure from special interest groups, and costs spiral out of control. If private companies are not willing to take the risk, there is a reason: the opportunity to make money is low. The mayor states that the civic centre could not be reasonably supported if there is no office tower. Then perhaps it is time to shelve the entire project. Our city
does not need to take on $44 million of new debt to create new homes for a city museum, Lacrosse Hall of Fame and art gallery. Instead, use the civic centre funds for a new recreation complex to replace the aging Canada Games Pool complex, sell the civic centre property to a residential tower developer. A developer could build a new residential tower, increasing the tax base and the downtown population without the city taxpayers having to take on this substantial risk. Our city taxes are already higher than in many municipalities. I am not willing to foot the bill for this project if it does not work. Geoff Pomper, New Westminster
More hospital concerns Dear Editor:
Re: Outbreak closes two RCH wards, April 27, The Record. Royal Columbian Hospital seems to be taking some precautions against the C. difficile bacteria by isolating units, “super cleaning” and making the public aware of this contagion. But what are RCH and Fraser Health doing about hospital staff? Staff are frequently seen along East Columbia Street in various businesses, and even eateries, wearing “booties” over their shoes, or open-back patient gowns, and sometimes with stethoscopes displayed around their necks. It seems obvious that bacteria or other viruses can easily be transmitted by staff, to other outside areas or be brought in to the hospital and patients. L. Spencer, New Westminster
Politics: What direction will Clark go? ◗ continued from page 6
government seems to be drawing a line in the sand on this issue, making it clear that Alberta’s interests trump those of British Columbia. Placed against this backdrop, it’s hard to see any chance of even a remotely warm relationship between Dix and Harper. Add to it the Tories’ insistence on a crackdown on crime that will add cost pressures to the provinces and other ideologically based policies, and we have the perfect recipe for serious tensions emerging between Victoria and Ottawa. As many predicted, now that the Tories have a majority government their right-wing ideology is shaping more and more of their policies. This also creates a problem, but as well perhaps
an opportunity for Premier Christy Clark. As Dix and the NDP inevitably find themselves criticizing the federal government more and more on various issues, it will be interesting to see where Clark comes down on those same issues. She has yet to take a position on the Enbridge pipeline, insisting not enough evidence has been produced to allow for an informed opinion on it. I’m not sure how long she can stay on the fence, particularly as the issue heats up, as it undoubtedly will. Clark needs to find an issue or two that resonate with the public if she has any chance of winning re-election. As the Harper government becomes unpopular in this province, will she distance herself from that government in
a clearly defined way? Or she will cling to her failing attempts at appearing to be more conservative than she really is, to beat down support for the B.C. Conservative Party? Dix has already staked out his position when it comes to the Harper government, and it’s likely one that will shore up his party’s popularity in this province. Will Clark try to share that turf? If she does, it will mean the cordial, even warm, relationship that has existed between the B.C. government and the one in Ottawa for more than a decade will be over. And if Dix does indeed become premier, that relationship will be icy at best and downright ugly at worst. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
The skies will light up over the Fraser River during the opening celebrations of the Lowe’s Hyack Festival. The Hyack Festival Association will kick off its 41st annual festival on Friday, May 18 with fireworks on the Fraser River waterfront. “We want the fireworks to be a fixture on opening night of the Hyack Festival,” said Bill Radbourne, president of the Hyack Festival association in a press release. “It ties in beautifully with the theme for our Hyack Festival float this year, which is Fired Up for Hyack. … We invite the community and everyone in the region to join us. It’s going to be a wonderful evening and a great way to launch the festival.” Hyack has secured a number of corporate sponsors for this year’s event, with Lowe’s taking on sponsorship of Hyack Festival Week, Key West Ford presenting the 2012 Hyack International Parade and McQuarrie Hunter LLP sponsoring the fireworks. The fireworks are only part of the festival’s opening celebration, which will feature performances by veteran Vancouver
songstress Babe Gurr, Brazilian jazz band Nova Sol and emerging young artist Alisia Lyne. Lyne will kick off the evening’s entertainment at 7 p.m., Nova Sol will perform at 7:45 p.m., the official opening ceremonies will take place at 8:30 p.m., Gurr will take to the stage at 9 p.m. and the fireworks will cap off the evening beginning at about 10 p.m. Douglas Smith, executive director of the Hyack Festival Association, said the association’s goal is to produce “first rate” events including the inaugural Uptown Live. Uptown Live, which will take place on Saturday, May 26 from 12:30 to 5 p.m., includes food and entertainment in the uptown area following the Hyack International Parade. Uptown Live will feature two main entertainment stages, one at Sixth and Sixth and another at Sixth Avenue and Seventh Street. A third stage, a kid’s stage, will be on Sixth Street near Fifth Avenue. While the entertainment lineup is still being finalized, the free event will feature performances by Vancouver-based indie bands including The Zolas, No Sinner, Gay Nineties, Earlstown Winter and more. www.twitter.com/TheresaMcManus

Herbert Spencer: School marks 100th anniversary on June 9 ◗ continued from page 1
school’s anniversary party in June. The school has been calling for former students to send in written submission of their favourite grade-school memories, which will be posted them on a “walk down memory lane” at the anniversary. “Probably the strongest memory for me is from October until early in the spring, everyday from Grade 1 walking to Queen’s Park, by ourselves, to go skating, and it was 10 cents,” Fulton says. “All of these kids would flood into Queen’s Park, and we’d leave there at four in the afternoon. It would be dark, and I remember Jack walking me up Regina Street carrying my skates and my mom standing in the window waiting. Then he’d drop me off, and he’d walk home.” That was in the days when kids could walk to the park by themselves. Spencer teacher Emily MacLeod was a student at the school in the 1980s, when kids were no longer allowed to roam quite so freely. MacLeod has a multi-generational connection to the school. She and her two sisters followed in the footsteps of her father and aunt who went to Spencer, and now her niece is a Spencer student. “I loved to be here,” MacLeod says about her elementary school days. “The learning was great, but aside from that, it was the friendships and the pride in the school and the experience from day to day.”
MacLeod wasn’t quite as boy-crazy as Fulton, though. “I really just didn’t have time for them,” she says about boys. “I remember boys trying to pin me down or pulling my braids. I remember getting quite frustrated with that. I don’t remember blatantly chasing them. … I remember actually one boy continually pulling on my ponytail and me finally turning around and giving him the whatfor right as the teacher walked in, and I was the one who got into trouble.” The school building has changed over the years, and for MacLeod being in a new school building has swept away some of the nostalgia. “The physical building is different, so it’s not the same,” she says. “It feels like a different school, but there are aspects that feel like the same. For instance, the pride that you see in the kids about their school.” There is also a similar level of community involvement and support from parents, she says. “That felt very familiar to me. You know, just being a part of what Spencer is and the energy felt familiar to me.” The school is hoping that as many former students and staff as possible make their own “connection” back to Spencer next month and attend the school’s 100th anniversary open house on June 9, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. www.twitter.com/nikimhope

Hospital wards reopened after outbreak BY CHRISTINA MYERS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Both of the hospital units that were shut down in late April at Royal Columbian Hospital due to an outbreak of the highly infectious C. difficile bacteria have now been reopened. C. difficile causes diarrhea, nausea and dehydration and typically only affects those who are already immune compromised, specifically the elderly or patients who have been on antibiotics for an extended time. On April 25, the hospital announced that two units – a general medical ward and a seniors/ acute award – were being closed for both incoming and outgoing
patients due to an outbreak in both areas. An outbreak is declared when there are three or more cases in a unit in a seven-day period. To limit the spread of the infection, that unit is then closed to new admissions or transfers out to other medical facilities or discharge to home. Patients are still able to receive visitors, but anyone entering and leaving the ward is asked to take extra precautions with hand hygiene. Last week, the general medical ward was reopened when it met the infection control guidelines – specifically, no new cases for seven days. However, Unit 6 South – the acute seniors unit – remained
closed until Monday, when it too had not seen any new cases for the required time period. As of Tuesday morning, it was no longer listed as a current outbreak on the Fraser Health’s outbreak information site. Fraser Health spokesperson Roy Thorpe-Dorward told The Record recently that the hospital is currently undergoing a “super clean.” That process includes a twice daily “twice-over” clean down using a strong sporacidal bleach, a process that has been effective in halting C. difficile infections at other hospital facilities. The deep clean was already scheduled prior to the outbreak and began on April 23; it will con-
tinue until May 20, said ThorpeDorward. The same deep cleaning procedure was recently carried out at Burnaby Hospital, which has been plagued with ongoing C. difficile outbreaks over the last two years. In late February, a letter written by several of Burnaby Hospital’s head doctors to the Fraser Health Authority about ongoing infection outbreaks was made public. In it, the doctors said that the hospital had a persistent problem with outbreaks of C. difficile among patients at a rate that topped regional or national averages. The age of the Burnaby facility has been named as one of the key factors in the difficulty of combating the infection there.
In late April, Minister of Health Mike de Jong announced that a master-planning process for the future of Burnaby Hospital was getting underway, with an initial report on the future of the facility expected in the fall. The Fraser Health Authority recently launched an active outbreak page on its website, to list any current infections at hospitals in the region, which runs from Burnaby to Boston Bar. To see that page, go to www. fraserhealth.ca and look under Your Stay for Infection Prevention and Control. Royal Columbian Hospital is a regional trauma centre and can receive patients from around the province.
Pattullo: TransLink moves meetings to June ◗ continued from page 1
Sapperton Bar; and building a bridge in Burnaby, which is known as the Tree Island option. The City of New Westminster encourages residents to complete the surveys, which are available on the city’s website and must be completed by May 18. “We will obviously compile all the information, do some analysis and use that information to establish a city policy that will be used in negotiations with TransLink and possibly the province,” Lowrie said. Residents can access the questionnaires via the city’s website (www.new westcity.ca) and search “master transportation plan.” The city hasn’t confirmed whether it will be doing a telephone survey to get further input from residents about the master transportation plan and Pattullo Bridge. “We want to have something that is statistically relevant and is representative of the city as a whole,” Lowrie said. In the April 30 letter to TransLink, city council stated that a decision about the Pattullo Bridge project should be deferred until the outcome of the city’s master transportation planning process is known, as this would ensure that the regional and local transportation systems are appropriately integrated. The city also stated its opposition to any options for the Pattullo Bridge that increase vehicular capacity at the crossing; stressed the need to ensure that New Westminster ’s livability

is enhanced by any decisions made concerning the Pattullo Bridge; and expressed concern that no mitigation measure have been identified to address traffic that will go to the Pattullo Bridge once the new tolled Port Mann Bridge opens at the end of 2012. “The Pattullo Bridge project presents a unique opportunity to assess the overall role of the crossing within the local and regional growth management plans and to address longstanding transportation problems in New Westminster,” stated the letter to TransLink. “We trust that important decisions on the Pattullo Bridge will be deferred until the outcome of the city’s master transporta-
tion plan is concluded. This will enable a holistic solution that balances local and regional needs which not only address long-term transportation needs, but also responds to the livability aspirations of New Westminster and the region.” TransLink has postponed some stakeholder meetings that it had scheduled for this week about the Pattullo Bridge. The meetings have been put off until June. TransLink was set to share information with stakeholders on May 8 about the proposed bridge alignment and connections to Surrey and New Westminster; report back on how the technical analysis and public and stakeholder feedback affected
decisions and outcomes; listen to stakeholder issues, concerns and opportunities related to the proposed bridge alignment and connection options; and discuss next steps. It was going to follow up with public open houses next week. Although the Pattullo Bridge has become a top issue of consideration as part of the city’s master transportation plan, the plan is being created to guide the city’s decision making for the next two decades for all modes of transportation, including walking, cycling, public transit, goods movement and vehicles. The City of New Westminster is hoping to conclude its update of the master transportation plan by the end this year.

From ice cream to a lifetime
Royal City couple celebrates 60th wedding anniversary BY CHRISTINA MYERS REPORTER email@example.com
It all began over a few scoops of ice cream in a small shop in New Westminster. Ralph and Marion Ralston celebrated their diamond anniversary last week, marking 60 years since they walked down the aisle at Olivet Baptist Church to wed on May 3, 1952. It’s been, says Marion, a wonderful six decades – with more years to come – but it certainly wasn’t love at first sight when they met as teenagers. “We both went to T.J. Trapp Tech – it was at the corner of Royal Avenue and Eighth Street. That’s John Robson (Elementary) now,” recalled Marion. “He was a year ahead of me.” Marion’s mother owned a small grocery store at 10th Street and Queens Avenue, called Queen’s Confectionary. “There was this little counter with stools and an ice cream parlour, and Ralph would come in with several of his friends. They’d have their lunch with them and eat it there, and then they’d order some ice cream.” Marion and her younger sister helped out in the shop, filling ice cream orders while their mother

“But I was extremely shy, and I didn’t want anything to do with them.” Eventually, Ralph asked her out – and she immediately turned
him down. “I said, ‘No, no, I’m busy,’” she recalled. “But he asked again (another day), and again I said, no.”
He tried – and failed – one final time, politely telling her that he wouldn’t ask again since she wasn’t interested. “So he leaves, and he’s a couple blocks away, and he hears these footsteps running behind him – he turns around and here I am, leaning against the fence trying to catch my breath, and I say ‘Well, my mother said I have to go out with you.’” Marion laughs, remembering it now. “Thank goodness she did. It all worked out,” she says. They dated the rest of the way through school, and, when she was 20 and he was 21, they were married at Olivet Baptist Church, which they both attended. It may seem young now, but it was the norm back then, she says. “Most of the people we graduated with were marrying around the same time,” she said. “Most people did then. It didn’t seem too young at all. We were very happy to be getting married.” But it wasn’t all smooth sailing from there. Before their first anniversary had even arrived, Ralph became seriously ill with pneumonia and suffered from a collapsed lung. When he was transferred from Royal Columbian Hospital to St. Paul’s Hospital, the doctor told Marion that Ralph might not be able to return to the work that ◗Anniversary Page 12

he’d been doing. “He said, ‘I think you’re going to have to leave your secretarial work and go into something a bit more stable’… and so I began my studies as a teacher, and from there I went on to get the master’s, too.” She later earned her doctorate, and was invited to teach at UBC, becoming a professor in education in the language department. During her time there, she wrote an award-winning textbook on mythology that was used in high schools across the country for more than a decade. Ralph recovered from the pneumonia and then also went into teaching, ultimately leading him to a position as the supervisor of technical education for the Vancouver School Board. During all those years, they stayed rooted in New Westminster, continuing to live – as they do to this day – in the city where they’d grown up and fallen in love. Marion volunteered

The next New Westminster Historical Society evening will be taking a look at a trio of topics. The event is being held on Wednesday, May 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the New Westminster Public Library’s auditorium. The presentation is based on community requests. “Last fall a guest speaker told the story of Columbian College in New Westminster. This program will follow up on that story including the college’s closing down in the 1930s,” said a press release. “The school was formerly on First Street in the area of today’s College Court.” The presentation will also feature a segment looking at illustrations from an 1891 Toronto
newspaper, The Saturday Globe, which featured a photo story on New Westminster. This set of images from the 1890s shows what was deemed photo-worthy for a story destined for Eastern Canada. “A final segment of the evening will centre on close-ups of pictures of local stores as, through these detailed photos, we go shopping in early New Westminster,” said the press release. “Close-up photography can open up the past in some incredible ways – this set of pictures is a great example of themes that can be displayed in this way.” The program is free, and everyone is welcome to attend. There is no need to pre-register.

We all want to give something that is meaningful and special, so this year, instead of stressing out over the next “musthave” handbag, why not give something more meaningful —a healthy planet. “As a mom, what I want most is the best possible future for my kids, and a healthy planet is an important part of that,” said Christina Topp, vice-president of marketing and communications at World Wildlife Fund (WWF). “A gift that I can enjoy and that helps support important conservation work to help people and nature thrive would be ideal.” To help you ﬁnd the perfect gift, here are three planet-friendly ideas to get your creative juices ﬂowing:
1. An adoption:
CANADA’S LARGEST PAWNBROKER 604-526-7296 515 Columbia St., New Westminster, B.C. (1/2 Block from Columbia St. SkyTrain station)
Present mom with something she can enjoy, like a new member of the family. Buy her the WWF symbolic wildlife adoption kit. You can choose from an array of cuddly animals and donate to WWF’s conservation work.
Just $40 gets you the adorable plush animal, plus a recycled gift bag, a personalized adoption certiﬁcate, an informational booklet with a collector card and a $30 tax receipt. More information is available online at wwfstore.ca.
2. Eco-breakfast in bed:
Cook up a delicious locally-sourced or organic breakfast and serve it to mom in comfort and style. Or treat her to a dinner out on the town at a local restaurant that offers a range of delicious and eco-friendly dishes.Organic breakfast recipes can be found at organicauthority.com/ organic-food-recipes/ breakfast/.
3. Do-it-yourself recycled gifts:
Make a mother’s day card or gift from recycled materials found around the house, or even in nature. Or perhaps you can ﬁnd a gentlyused gift from a local vintage or antique shop.

Every spring individuals celebrate their mothers on Mother’s Day. It has evolved from a day to honor mothers to one that recognizes all special women. Therefore, if there is a woman in one’s life who isn’t a biological mother – but special nonetheless – Mother’s Day can be a time to tell her how much she is appreciated. There are many reasons a person may want to honor a woman that is not his or her mother. Perhaps the person’s own mother has passed away or is not prominent in this individual’s life. Maybe there is a grandmother or aunt with whom one is especially close. There may be a teacher or mentor that has touched the life of a person in a special way. Although Mother’s Day is built around giving thanks to Mom, it’s certainly acceptable to thank women in addition to dear old Mom. Furthermore, one needn’t wait until a speciﬁc day in May to honor a notable woman. This can be done all year long with certain gestures and sentiments.
• Find out her interests and spend a day doing entirely what she wants to do. It doesn’t necessarily have to take place on Mother’s Day. A trip to a museum or a day at the park – whatever it may be – can be a nice outing. • Treat her to a special dinner. Ask about favorite foods and create a meal at home. If dining out is a must, choose a day other than Mother’s Day to avoid the crowds and have intimate moments with just the two of you, especially if you are also honoring your own mother on Mother’s Day. • Find something you both enjoy and then go and do that. Maybe you met up due to a hobby or interest. Remember the ﬁrst day you met and reminisce by heading to that place for a celebration.
For those who are celebrating all women on Mother’s Day, here are some ways to set the day apart.
• Have an extended family ﬁesta. Host a Mother’s Day party at home and single out all the special women in attendance. Serve cocktails and enjoy the time spent together.
• Create a handmade card with personalized sentiments that reﬂect the unique relationship with this special woman. This can mean more than a prepurchased card that may not offer the right words.
Mother’s Day is a special time of the year to honor not only a person’s mom but also any other notable woman in his or her life. The holiday can be customized any way a person sees ﬁt. — MC

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY from
Worst Mother’s Day gifts Think before buying When asked what the worst Mother’s Day gift they’ve ever received was, 14 per cent of mothers say that receiving no gift at all was the worst, while another two per cent say forgetting altogether that it was Mother’s Day was the worst. While a majority (51 per cent) of mothers say that they’ve never received a bad gift and they’ve liked everything they’ve ever received for Mother’s Day, some mothers have received a few admittedly terrible gifts.

Mother’s Day minus mom
other’s Day is supposed to be a happy occasion wherein individuals honor their mothers and other special women with gifts and tokens of appreciation. But for the men and women who have lost their mothers, this holiday can be everything from bittersweet to painful. Honoring Mom takes on new meaning. Any holiday can be particularly difﬁcult to enjoy when a loved one passes away. However, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day – dates on the calendar speciﬁc to a special person in one’s life – can be even more trying, especially if the loss is still fresh. Individuals who have lost their mothers may experience Mother’s Day in myriad ways. Some may choose to ignore the day, preferring to keep busy and not acknowledge that Mother’s Day is taking place. Others may pour over memories of their mother, looking at old photos or videos. Some may make a trip to a cemetery or special place of reﬂection. Certain people prefer to be alone, while others want to be in the comfort of a group. The way the holiday is spent is entirely up to the person and the way he or she feels the most comfortable.
On Mother’s Day, men and women who have lost their mother often ﬁnd spending time with their own children is a great way to lift their spirits.
In fact, it can be downright challenging to wade through the rows of greeting cards at every store and watch scores of commercials on television reminding one not to forget to pick up something special for one’s mother. If a person is looking for a way to celebrate Mom after she has passed on, here are a few ideas. • Remember a good time had with Mom and then capture those happy feelings. • Donate to a charity or do something special that Mom would have appreciated. • Plant a tree or plant in her honor in the yard. • Watch a video or look through pictures of Mom and remember all of the good times had together. • If you are a mother, relish in the day with the kids and other family. Your Mom would want you to. • Wear a white carnation to symbolize that you have lost your mother.

“The 17th Annual Queens Park Garage Sale in support of Canuck Place will be happening this Saturday May 12th from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. If you love garage sales you won’t want to miss out on this one! It is the most anticipated garage sale in New Westminster. People from other cities have been calling in wanting to know when it will be this year. Currently there are over 50 homes participating. This neighbourhood garage sale was started 17 years ago by a former New Westminster realtor and resident of Queens Park, Mr. Frank Wright. He thought it would be a great idea to have a neighbourhood garage sale and have it in support of a great charity. His charity of choice was Canuck Place. For any of you who are not familiar with Canuck Place, it provides specialized pediatric palliative care for British Columbia’s children living with life-threatening illnesses and support for their families. Participating homes will be donating part of the proceeds of what they make at the garage sale to Canuck Place. However, the donations are not only accepted from the participating homes so if you would like to make a donation please visit www.TeamDaveVallee.com and click on the Queens Park Garage Sale icon to help us make this year’s goal of $2,000. So come on out with your best ‘sale-ing’ gear and enjoy a great day strolling the beautiful streets in New Westminster’s most prestigious neighbourhood!”

Take Mom to the symphony
Wondering how to make Mom’s special day on Sunday ultra-special? Here’s a suggestion: treat Mom to a nice lunch, then head to Massey Theatre for the New Westminster Symphony Orchestra’s Mother’s Day concert at 2 p.m. Music director and conductor Jin “Jack” Zhang and his musicians promise a concert that mothers will love. Local arts promoter Tony Antonias says Zhang has several surprises
planned for this concert, including two young soloists – Vivian Chen, a harpist from the UBC School of Music, who will star in Debussy’s Dances for Chromatic Harp and Strings, and 14year-old cello soloist Todd Huang, who will perform the first movement of Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1, an extraordinary creation, notable not least for its massive, tempestuous cadenza. “Then comes the icing on the cake,” says Antonias. “Mendelssohn’s extra-
ordinary and beautiful Symphony No. 3 – popularly known as ‘The Scottish.’” This symphony was inspired by Mendelssohn’s visit to Scotland and dedicated to Queen Victoria. The concert starts at 2 p.m. and is presented by Westminster Savings Credit Union as part of its ongoing support of the New Westminster Symphony Orchestra. Massey Theatre is at 735 Eighth Ave. As always, admission is by donation.

So close: Burnaby Selects Sekawnee Baker, in red, controls the ball against Richmond in the under-13 boys’ Coastal A Cup ﬁnal on Saturday. With the win, Barca qualifies for the provincial cup, but with a handful of girls unable to make the July date in Kamloops it is uncertain whether the team will be able to field an adequate squad. But next season, the New West coaching staff believes the players will be ready to take on an even bigger challenge – when it intends to skip u-16 and jump up to the under17/18 division.
“I think the girls are ready. These girls are ready now,” said New West assistant coach Angelo Guglielmucci. “I think it’s wonderful.” In the u-13 boys’ final, the Burnaby Selects lost 1-0 to Richmond United in a shootout in the Coastal A Cup final. After a scoreless regulation and overtime, the penalty shootout also went to extra shooters before an outcome was decided.
“We hit the crossbar and it went out, they hit a crossbar and it went in. It was one of those games, it was like a flip of a coin,” said Burnaby head coach Frank Iuele. Mario Greco Jr. had a couple of chances on partial breaks in the opening half, while Todor Baljak also had an opportunity go for naught. Cristiano Basso had ◗Soccer Page 28

Victor Montagliani of Burnaby is the new president of the Canadian Soccer Association. The Burnaby Heights resident was elected to a four-year term at its annual general meeting in Ottawa on Saturday. Montagliani, 46, who previously served three terms as the association’s vice-president and was a past chair of the national teams committee, has been a member of the association’s executive committee since 2005. Montagliani is proud of his “soccer guy” moniker. “Passion and love of the game, I’ll take that any time,” he said on a Tuesday morning conference call. Montagliani also brings with him 21 years of business experience in corporate Canada with a commitment to and knowledge of the game at all levels. “Governance is not simply about management. It requires leadership, passion and a burning desire to deliver excellent outcomes for the Canadian Soccer Association. Leadership is about service, and I am ready to serve,” said Montagliani in a press release prior to his election. Montagliani replaces Dominique Maestracci, who was elected in 2007. Maestracci was instrumental in securing Canada’s successful bid to host the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015, which will include Vancouver as a site city. As a player and a successful businessman, Montagliani said there are too many structures in the game that have an “instrumental mentality.” He said the game has to change from its cultural past and become more entrepenurial, “ensuring operations and governance are separated.” To that end, the CSA has already begun moving away from the 12 provincial and territorial president format to one that includes six appointed positions.

The New Westminster Salmonbellies won their second straight B.C. Junior Lacrosse League matchup against the Nanaimo Timbermen. The junior A Salmonbellies defeated the T-Men 12-7 Saturday in Nanaimo after opening the regular season at home with a 10-4 win over the Island club last weekend. Drew House led the ‘Bellies with a five-point outing, including one of five team members to score a pair of goals in the win. Kyle Dobbie also tallied twice, while adding two assists. Connor Goodwin,
and goalie Chris Schneller had standout games. Up front, Tyus Batiste had a welltaken goal called back on an offside call. “They did extremely well considering they were missing a couple of key players to injury and only had one spare player,” said South Burnaby head coach Don Ehrenholz. “I’m confident that the Vipers will do well in the Provincial Cup and can beat the CCB Elite in provincials with a full squad.” In the girls’ B Cup final, Cliff Avenue United’s Cinderella playoff run in the u-18 division came to an end following a 2-0 loss to Central City Elite 94 on Sunday. – firstname.lastname@example.org

A Real Estate Minute
Honest answers to your real estate questions.
“Derrick, we were hoping to get our home on the market this spring, but the list of things we want to do first will take me until July to complete. Will we miss the market?”
- Brad from The Heights
There is no doubt most of the real estate transactions happen in March, April, and May. It is a common misconception that spring is the only time to sell. However, a good home in a good neighbourhood will sell in any month of the year. Less listings in July and August or October and November equals less competition and more demand. If you happen to run into a Buyer looking in July, trying to get his family settled before school starts in September, it could mean easy street for a homeowner with the right home. Ask your realtor’s advice on the improvements / repairs you intend on making before coming on the market. I pride myself on giving great advice, not projects to my clients. Certain things must be done but others could cost you valuable time. Just remember, your Buyer will want to put their own fingerprint on their new home, so leave them something to do once they move in. In our city of old houses that should not be a problem.
Hot Tip #9
The highest prices are not always achieved in Spring. Send me your real estate related questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and look for my answers each Wednesday in this section.

Q. “Derrick, we recently lost out on
a great home because the Seller would not look at our subject to sale offer. We can’t buy a home without selling, and we don’t want to sell without knowing where we are going. What advice can you give us?” - Naomi, Queens Park
A. An age old question. With an age old
answer. Sell your home and go shopping! That way, you will know how much money you have to work with. You will be a welcomed Buyer money in hand, with the ability to negotiate the best price for your efforts. If the right house is not there when you need it, rent and wait for the right one. This is the chosen path of the most successful moves. It can cost thousands more doing it backwards. Or worse, you could end up owing two houses. Moving is stressful any way you cut it, but if it’s time to move, it’s time to move. You can reduce that stress with good advice, but you can’t eliminate it, no one can. Sometimes you just have to trust it will work out somehow. I’ve always been fascinated how it almost always does.

Have a little faith, the right home will be there when you need it!
