Mayor: ‘It’s hard to imagine Richmond without him’

Retail vendors at stations on way

Philanthropist Milan Ilich dies BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

“It’s a very sad day.” Few would argue with Mayor Malcolm Brodie’s words after Richmond learned of the passing on Wednesday of esteemed philanthropist, developer and community leader Milan Ilich after a long battle with illness. Although an intensely private man, who shunned the media spotlight, he donated or helped raise tens of million of dollars for local charities throughout his years. “Milan was a true community supporter as well as being a great family man and businessman,” Mayor Brodie said in tribute. Ilich, who grew up in Richmond, founded the paving company Progressive Construction in 1965. “He helped this city in so many ways and we’re going to miss him greatly. It’s hard to imagine Richmond without him.”

City in B.C.’s top 10 drunk driving league of shame Richmond postcode has earned highest rate of drink driving prohibitions in Lower Mainland BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

A postal code in Richmond has earned the reputation as being the worst place in Metro Vancouver for drink driving. Drivers living in the V6W region — a triangular section of southeast Richmond, running east from Highway 99 to Annacis Island and south from Westminster Highway to the Fraser River — have clocked up the highest drink driving prohibitions in Metro Vancouver. According to ICBC statistics requested by GlobalBC, for every 1,000 licensed drivers in the postcode, 15 were suspended for alcohol-related offences between April

TO

Win-It CONTEST

2010 and April 2011. The rate for the vast majority of postcodes in Metro Vancouver was less than 10 per 1,000. Richmond RCMP’s Inspector Janis Gray couldn’t say for sure why the area has managed to earn so many drink-driving prohibitions. “When we set up road blocks, such as during the Counter Attack campaign, things like a history of traffic, complaints from people and bars are a consideration,” Gray said in relation to the location of roadside checks. “Does that mean (south-east Richmond) is targeted? Probably. We don’t have a downtown core in Richmond, but we do have areas where we target and (south-east Richmond) has a lot of people com-

ing off the highway.” Drunk drivers being caught in a certain area can also be a by-product of police checks being carried out for other crime hotspots, such as breakins, according to Gray. Only a New Westminster/North Delta postcode came close to southeast Richmond, with between 10 and 12.5 per 1,000 drivers. In fact, the southeast Richmond postcode was the only Metro Vancouver area to make it into the province’s top ten league of drink driving shame. The other nine worst offenders came from the Interior, with Chilcotin top of the list (more than 15 suspensions per 1,000), followed by a block of three postal codes in the northeast, taking in Fort St. John, Dawson

RICHMOND BOTTLE DEPOT

Creek and a large surrounding area. The suspensions resulted from all types of impaired driving-related charges, from impaired driving causing death to 12-hour suspensions. Fort St. John’s proximity to the top of the table came as no surprise to its RCMP detachment, citing the city’s resource-based community bringing in a lot of young, predominantly male workers from other parts of the province who have lots of disposable income. Top 10: (Only postcodes with more than 1,000 licensed drivers included in list) V0L Chilcotin; V0C Northeastern BC; V1G Dawson Creek; V1J Fort St. John; V1K Merritt; V2L Prince see City page 4

If you’ve wondered why there are no retail outlets at the Canada Line stations in Richmond, you’re not the only one. City of Richmond staff have been investigating what possibilities there are for having vendors positioned at or near the city’s four stations. The thought process is that having vendors at or under the stations will deter illicit activity and, thus, enhance safety and security of the area. It’s also anticipated that any vendor for a particular station or area could be made responsible for keeping it clean and free of debris. However, a report placed before city council’s public works and transportation committee highlighted restrictions with station owners TransLink as a potential roadblock. “The access agreement with TransLink restricts the city from using or undertaking any activities within a one-metre buffer area around the perimeter of the Canada Line infrastructure,” the report read. With regard to each station; both Bridgeport and Brighouse have very limited retail opportunities see Halsey-Brandt page 4

to make sure impaired driving doesn’t ruin the festivities. “Let’s make sure that no one’s celebration ends in a crumpled car on the side of the road,” said MADD Canada National President Denise Dubyk. “Plan ahead for a safe and sober ride home this Canada Day.” MADD Canada and its 100 chapters and community leaders across the country are committed to stopping impaired driving and supporting the victims of this violent crime. MADD’s advice for drivers

this holiday weekend include: " Plan ahead: arrange to have a designated driver, take a cab, transit or plan to stay overnight. " Never drive impaired or get into a vehicle with someone you suspect is impaired. " If you see an impaired driver, alert the police. Call 911. As well, the province, police and ICBC kicked off the summer CounterAttack campaign on Wednesday, with a reminder to plan ahead and choose a designated driver to get home safely.

City estimate $250,000 to deal with Phoenix BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Sections of a disused storage building — once part of Steveston’s thriving fishing industry — should be demolished at a cost of $250,000, according to a City of Richmond staff report. The 7,000-square feet Phoenix net loft at the Britannia Heritage Shipyard is in such a terrible condition that it could soon be too dangerous for staff or the public to enter. The building, a wooden structure built between 1939 and 1945, was last used in 2000 for net storage and repair, but has since been used by the city for storing BC Packer’s artefacts and

Gateway Theatre props and sets. City staff estimate it would cost $250,000 to demolish two sheds and the remains of a wharf deck — much of which fell into the river late last year. After the part demolition, further dilapidation from the elements will be prevented by protective covering, which would also keep out wildlife. A full demolition, according to the report, would cost $450,000 and would also curtail what the site could be used for in the future. To repair or rebuild the structure to a standard where it could be used by the public is projected at anything between $1 million and $3 million.

5. Canada has the longest covered bridge in the world (1,282 feet long). Where is it located? Hartland, NB 6. What university developed the world’s first antigravity suit? University of Toronto 7. Andrew Bonar Law was the only Canadian ever to do what? Serve as Prime Minister of Great Britain

8. How many National Parks are there in Canada? 40 9. In which year did Canada adopt the metric system? 1970 10. How many time zones are there in Canada? 6 11. What is the highest mountain in Canada? Mount Logan 12. What is the longest river in Canada? Mackenzie River

13. What is Canada’s most northern island? Ellesmere 14. Which of the following authors is not Canadian? A.A. Milne 15. Which Province has the largest concentration of moose in North America? Newfoundland 16. When was “O Canada” proclaimed as Canada’s national anthem? 1980

be right at present for Lansdowne, which doesn’t yet have enough foot traffic to make a retail option viable. Once the area densifies, as is expecting in the coming years, the report indicates that Lansdowne’s open spaces and distance from competitors could make it a very viable

option for vendors. In the meantime, staff have recommended that the city undertake a pilot program to permit retail activity on city land, with the two best locations being around Aberdeen Station and at the No. 3 Road and Westminster Highway intersection.

According to police, the 27 year old apologized to the male and his friend for the unintentional contact. However, it was then that the two men took offence.

A6 July 1, 2011 The Richmond News

The following bylaw will be considered for adoption by City Council on July 11, 2011:

City Centre Area Transitional Tax Exemption Bylaw No. 8776 Pursuant to the Municipalities Enabling And Validating Act (No. 4) (Bill 15) and Section 227 of the Community Charter, public notice is being provided that Richmond City Council will consider adoption of the City Centre Area Transitional Tax Exemption Bylaw No. 8776 (“Bylaw 8776”) at the July 11, 2011 Council meeting. Commercial and light industrial properties in the City Centre area have experienced substantial increases in property taxes since 2005 due to various factors, including changes to the Richmond Official Community Plan to permit high density mixed-use developments in the area, construction of the Canada Line, rapid redevelopment in the area, and demand causing significant increases to the fair market and assessment values of properties in the area. The purpose of Bylaw 8776 is to protect jobs and businesses in the City Centre area during the transition of the area from primarily commercial and light industrial to high density mixed-use by providing temporary partial tax exemptions to eligible properties located within the City Centre Area Plan (“CCAP”) area, as specified in the Richmond Official Community Plan Bylaw 7100 Amendment Bylaw 8383, Schedule 2.10 – City Centre Area Plan. All properties that satisfy the following criteria and conditions will be eligible for the exemption: a) the property is located within the CCAP area; b) the property is classified only as Class 5 or 6 under the Assessment Act; c) the property’s assessed land value (not including improvements) has increased by 100 per cent or more between the 2005 and 2011 revised assessment rolls; d) the municipal taxes for the property has increased by more than $30,000 between the 2005 and 2011 taxation years; e) the property contains improvements, as determined by the BC Assessment Authority; f) the property is not a strata lot; g) the property contains at least one business that holds a valid City business licence; h) the owner of the property has entered into an exemption agreement with the City; and i) the property has been issued an exemption certificate. The available exemption under Bylaw 8776 is equal to a reduction of 20 per cent of the assessed land value (not including improvements) of an eligible property. Exemptions will be provided to eligible properties on an annual basis during the next five years, from the 2012 to 2016 taxation years. Staff will be hosting a public meeting to explain Bylaw No. 8776 on Wednesday, July 6 at 4:00 p.m. in room M.2.004 at Richmond City Hall. Written submissions may be made to Council on the proposed bylaw by writing to the City Clerk c/o 6911 No. 3 Road, Richmond, BC V6Y 2C1, by sending a fax to 604-278-5139 or by sending an email to finance@richmond.ca. Arrangements may also be made for delegations to Council by calling 604-276-4387. All submissions received prior to the bylaw adoption will be forwarded to Council for consideration. A copy of the report and the proposed bylaw is available on the City website at www.richmond.ca (City Hall > City Council > Agendas & Minutes > Council

07015048

Meetings > 2011 Agendas & Minutes > June 27, 2011) or by calling the Finance Department at 604-276-4218.

With summer now here, many of us are having visions of camping and barbecuing with friends and family. But use caution when using portable propane equipment. “Portable propane/gas appliances must only be used outdoors where ample ventilation is available,” said Richmond Fire-Rescue Chief John McGowan. “These appliances must also be positioned in areas away from combustible materials. Never leave children unattended around propane equipment.” Richmond Fire-Rescue is encouraging backyard chefs and campers to use extreme care when using portable propane cylinders for cooking, heating or lighting. Also, check your equipment for cracks and/or leaks before attempting to ignite your appliance.

Thank you, O Canada

oday is Canada Day. It will be a day of celebration around the country, as Canadians mark the anniversary, each in their own way. Some folks will take a quiet day at home, while others will prefer noisy celebrations in the streets and in the parks. Many Canadians will take advantage of their proximity to the great outdoors – and Canada has more than its fair share of great outdoors – to experience the wilderness, or perhaps pitch a tent in one of our tremendous national parks (although, the weatherman seems to be suggesting that anyone with such plans in this particular part of the country had best pack some sturdy rain gear this weekend). There’s all sorts of ways to appreciate this special day in Canada. In the midst of the joy and frivolity that accompanies this happy day of celebration, we would like to add an appreciatively sombre thought. We urge all to take a moment to contemplate what we have, just by dint of being Canadians, and what this country has afforded us. We should take some time to think about what we, as Canadians, have offered to the rest of the world… and what we can easily afford to continue to offer. A thoughtful exercise for Canada Day might be to think about ways that we can share some of the bounty with which we have been blessed. It is a sobering thought to realize that only the poorest Canadians have less than the average residents of most of the rest of the world. We need to raise the average level of livelihood in Canada by helping the poorest among us… but we also need to look beyond our borders, to raise the level for others, as well. We have every right to be proud of our country – and sharing gives us cause to be prouder still.

CHOICE WORDS

City council is out to lunch

The Editor, Re: “Election tie to be decided by random draw,” News, June 22. Council pontificating over what to do in case of a tied vote in city elections was all very amusing and reminded me of a conference I attended once. Participants were asked to vote on what they would like for lunch. They were given 10 choices and told to choose three. The top three would be served. It turned out that the top two were clear, but there was a tie for third. Someone suggested they flip a coin, another suggested a run-off vote during the first break. It was pointed out that the first two meals and one of the options for third place contained meat, so it seemed reasonable to opt for the vegetarian meal. While flicking through the ballots, someone noticed that some had selected the first two winning meals and others had selected none, so it was suggested that they just look at the ballots that had neither of the two already selected meals marked. The winner of this automatic run-off would then round off the three meals and maximize the number of participants who had selected at least one of the meals. It was finally decided to flip a coin, as only a quarter of the guests filled out ballots, because they really didn’t care and the choice was mostly junk food anyway. Even the vegetarians didn’t expect to be tied for third. Don’t forget to vote this November, you’ll now be able to do it while out shopping!

It’s back to DIY entertainment My girlfriend and I were talking about Jane Austen novels the other day (I think it was shortly after our conversation about Star Wars — don’t get the idea that it’s all high culture around our place) and she noted how boring the lives of the main characters seemed. One of the main diversions of young women at a small party, for instance, was to get up and “take a turn about the room” with someone else. That is, they would walk. Around the room. And then maybe do that again. This was what passed for entertainment in the Regency era, apparently. It’s hard to imagine anyone being entranced with this activity. “And this is the southwest corner of the room! Oh my, Mr. Darcy, look at the wallpaper! And now the south-east corner! Oh, so much excitement, I may have to take to my bed and die of happiness and/or consumption!” In a typical upper class Regency household, your forms of entertainment were as follows: conversation, reading, playing music for each other, cards and gambling, putting on plays or tableaux vivants for friends, and, for some people, seducing the neighbours or servants. So entertainment was pretty much DIY for much of even the upper classes. If you lived in London or Paris, you could go to

Matthew Claxton PAINFUL TRUTH

plays, opera, and concerts, but that was still the exception. For the other 90 per cent of the population, entertainment was even more limited. You had conversation, scratching pictures in the dirt floor of your hovel with a stick, joining the army to be shot at by the French, or starving to death. Less than fifty years later, the entertainment revolution began, and it’s taken off like a rocket. First you had the invention of the art of photography, and the spread of the institution of the lending library. Images and words could reach more people than ever before. Meanwhile, people were getting slightly less wretchedly poor than they had been, because of two linked social forces. First, technology changed to allow mass production and cheaper goods. Second, early unions and social radicals fought for the 10 hour and then the eight hour work day, and for the five day work week. That gave those labouring poor both more money and more free time, which they could fill with entertainment, from magic lantern shows to roller skating rink trips.

Then the phonograph came along, and the dawn of the 20th century saw the pace of entertainment accelerate. Silent films, talkies, colour films. Radio, record players, the rock and roll single. TV, VCRs, DVD players, PVRs, Netflix, YouTube. Pong, the Nintendo 64, Xbox 360. And the Internet, which encompasses, contains, and delivers every form of entertainment on this list. Except for taking a turn about the room. “Oh, Mr. Pentium, how droll do you find this wainscotting!” We’re now drowning in entertainment. It’s possible for someone working an average job to go home at the end of the day and spend every remaining waking moment of the day passively consuming. If I sat down and watched every movie and TV show I personally own on DVD back to back, it would take me… well, I’d probably have to take a few weeks off work. And while the image of the thoroughly passive couch potato endures, the Regency DIY attitude is coming back. We don’t just surf the net, we take our own pictures, post our own videos, songs, podcasts. Heck, one of the reasons we can passively consume (if we choose) is because of the army of DIY folks, putting on a show for their friends.

The Editor, Re: City digs deeper into surplus,” News, June 17. So Richmond council found some money and has happily spent it on all those important things that were not important enough to make it to the budget. There was one lone councillor, Bill McNulty, trying but failing to get a million dollars put aside for a rainy day. Goodness knows we never have any of those. Besides, who puts money away for unforeseen emergencies? Wise people perhaps! Well I will not argue against any of those little expenses that helped us to dispose of that nasty leftover money. But where did that money come from? Once again, it was surplus from our police budget. How the heck did that happen? I see the allocation on my tax bill. Do we give them too much and they cannot spend it all? No, the problem is that the Richmond RCMP detachment is still understrength. For many years, we have not had the number of police that both the RCMP and the City of Richmond agree is required to keep our streets safe. So, there is leftover pay at the end of the year. Council and city staff run around like they found money in an old jacket pocket.

This happens every year folks. There is a real problem here; the BC Liberals are failing to provide us with the number of police officers we require to keep us safe. We have the money and it is budgeted, but they will not fill our request. To the people of Richmond, that means that we do not have a sufficient number of police officers patrolling our streets, keeping our homes safe, catching drunk drivers and speeders. Anybody can tell you if you reduce the predators in the forest you see an increase in prey. So if you drop the number of police, you will see an increase in criminal activity. In addition, we are asking our police officers to work in an environment that is not as safe as it should be. It will take longer to get officers to a scene, fewer officers are sent to dangerous calls and it will require police to drive further to calls. And there is the deterrent of a police car driving down the road; we have fewer than we need. So what about the neighbours. Are they in trouble, too? New Westminster Police Service has not been understrength in at least the last 25 years; I can say the same about the Delta Police Department, too. Vancouver; well they won’t even tell the mayor

how many guys were on shift for the riot, so who knows. In New Westminster and Delta, if the municipality agrees that they need more police, the chief hires them and sends them to the police academy. In Richmond, since the Feds lease the Mounties to the province to be sublet to the municipalities, we must go to the province with hat in hand and say “Please sir, more.” And we will pay, as it costs the provincial government nothing. I make no negative comment about our RCMP, they are fine police officers and are doing a brilliant job of “doing more with less.” Bottom line; we put money aside for police protection and the province will not give us the

RCMP members we need to keep the streets safe. Are the streets safe enough now? I am sorry my family lives here and there is no such thing as “safe enough.” If we can afford the protection, then we should have it and make our streets and homes as safe as we can. Why can we not get the police protection that we are paying for? We are having a municipal election this November. Wouldn’t that be an interesting question to pose to the mayor. Also, next time you are having “Java with John” or you run into Linda Reid or Rob Howard, ask why we are not getting the protection we are paying for. Scott Stewart Richmond

Friends and Construction – A risky mix!

07011206

The Zimmermans and the Vegas were good friends; two young married couples who knew each other for years. They decided to build a ski chalet, and agreed that nobody would be paid for their services. Each couple would contribute half of the costs as well. Mr. Vega was a contractor. Mr. Zimmerman could build as well. The wives acted as bookkeepers. They purchased the land and each couple acquired a half interest, as joint tenants. Alas, Mr. Vega did not do enough work on the project and left his wife as well. The project failed. The Zimmermans and Mrs. Vega had to arrange the completion themselves, and then sued Mr. Vega to force a sale of the property. Mr. Vega wanted to be paid for the work he did contribute, and counterclaimed accordingly. Reasons for judgment were released in early June. The Court held that under the Partition of Property Act, as the majority of owners wanted the sale, that Order had to be made. The Zimmermans and Mrs. Vega were allowed sole conduct of the sale. Mr. Vega’s counterclaim failed because it ran against the Agreement the parties had reached (that nobody would be paid for their contribution to the construction of the chalet). This unfortunate case illustrates the important remedy of Partition and Sale, where owners of property fall into dispute and cannot resolve it (and thus the sale of the property becomes the best and seemingly only solution).

“tie-vote” in the upcoming November civic elections. From their lofty perches, we were regalled with great individual oratories from council about various councillors respect for democracy, and how people gave their lives for democracy. Then they seguayed into how great it was have used taxpayer funds to hire someone to specifically keep the areas around the Canada Line route clean. There was mutual backslapping amongst council that this was money well spent. Then council put on their white knight costume, and revelled us how they had spent so much time coming to the assistance of business owners in the city centre, given the massive property tax increases imposed on them. Wasn’t it council that created the original problem via approving a new

OCP which created a “higher and best use,” thus higher assessments, thus higher taxes for local businesses? Given there is no free lunch, it appears that residential property owners will be taxed higher to pick up the slack? Then came the wellorganized seniors, who came to discuss a need for expanded seniors facilities, and why their requests were continually pushed back as a lower priority? Then the true gem: when Mayor Malcolm Brodie entered the discussion and deftly tap danced on the major $50-plus million major capital projects tabled for Richmond between 2012 and 2014, and that a referendum on such projects was “possible,” but not necessary, as the city could access the required funds without external borrowing, implying they could proceed. Unless mistaken,

regardless of where the funds originate, they ultimatley are the taxpayer’s funds. I thought I had just witnessed various council sermons about democracy? Give the people a say via referendum, democracy is not a blank cheque. Ah yes, November elections are quickly approaching, (and not soon enough.) R. A. Hoegler Richmond

Two classes tied for first place: the Grade 7 class at Kathleen McNeely elementary (top right) and the Grade 4/5 class at Jessie Wowk elementary (below). Each student reduced their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2.3 tons.

2011 F-150 balances power with efficiency

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Ford has made the new F-150 more fuel efficient while offering the same power and strength that the truck is known for.

BY DAVID CHAO

FOR MORE INFORMATION GO TO WWW.SIGNATUREMAZDA.COM

Special to the News

In 2009, Ford stated that it would make its fantastic new EcoBoost technology available in 90 per cent of its vehicles by 2013, systematically replacing its outdated engines with turbocharged inline-fours and V6’s that are smaller, lighter, and vastly more efficient. Since then, a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 has shown up in vehicles such as the Flex and Taurus, producing awesome power and dramatically reducing fuel consumption. Ford has also made great strides with non-turbocharged engines, developing a new 3.7L V6 and 5.0L V8 for the Mustang coupe while following the industry trend toward six-speed automatic transmissions. And in 2011, the F-150 pickup benefits from all of these things. Two years after the introduction of the twelfth-generation F-150, Ford has completely revamped the truck’s engine line-up, subjecting it to the most extensive powertrain overhaul in the iconic vehicle’s long history. As a result, the 2011 F-150 can be had with the 3.7L V6 or 5.0L V8 borrowed from the Mustang, along with a 6.2L V8 and, of course the EcoBoost V6. For many truck owners, the very idea of a turbocharged V6 under the hood of their next truck is ridiculous; they want the traditional V8 that they know and trust. For others, that big, gas-guzzling V8 engine is a necessity more than a desire, and anything that produces comparable power while improving fuel efficiency is a welcome addition. Balancing the desire to innovate and lead the way against the need to satisfy its extremely loyal customer base, Ford has done the smart thing and catered to both groups. As a result, every F-150 buyer can get the vehicle they really want, whether it’s a two-door hauler or a four-door luxury truck. And even if they don’t opt for EcoBoost, owners will benefit from a 20 per cent improvement in fuel efficiency across the entire engine line-up. Put all of this together, and it’s reasonable to expect that the F-150 will maintain its position at the top of the leaderboard, which includes 46 years as Canada’s bestselling truck. At this rate, 50 years doesn’t seem so far away.

Design

Like all full-size trucks these days, the F-150 is simply massive, with squared-off corners, harder edges, and a tough, no-nonsense exterior design highlighted by a powerful front grille. It’s available in Regular Cab, Super Cab, and SuperCrew body styles. Some consumers might prefer the sportier and friendlier look of the previous F-150, but most will appreciate the sculpted tailgate, which reduces turbulence for better fuel efficiency, and the choice of 19 different wheel options. The 2004 F-150’s interior was a revelation, adopting a more passenger-friendly look and feel that made the truck more accessible. The 2011 version maintains that feeling, but doesn’t go any further to innovate or set trends. In that sense, it’s perfectly fine, but a bit disappointing. Build quality — already a strong point of the F-150 — has gotten even better. The fit and finish are exceptional, and the truck feels unbelievably solid.

07014797

Performance

The F-150’s naturally aspirated engines include a 3.7L V6 with 302-hp and 278 lb-ft of torque, a 5.0L V8 with 360-hp and 380 lb-ft of torque, and a 6.2L V8 tuned for 411-hp and 434 lb-ft of torque. see Bottom line page 16

Controls are placed logically on the F-150’s flat and vertical dashboard, employing a similar layout to many recent Ford vehicles. Regular Cabs come with a threeperson bench seat, which can be replaced by a full console with a giant storage box in four-door cabins. The front-bucket seats in four-door models are very comfortable, and rear passengers will find lots of room in both the Super Cab and SuperCrew configurations. However, despite the designers’ best efforts, the rear seatbacks are still very upright and potentially uncomfortable over long distances. In addition to offering the most space, the SuperCrew benefits from a lift-up rear bench that provides a completely flat load floor for tall objects. There are also bins and compartments all over the truck, ensuring that you’ll have lots of places to stow your gear. Notable features that contribute significantly to the F-150’s overall convenience and utility include a folding bed extender, box-side steps that can be quickly deployed and retracted, and a class-exclusive tailgate step that flips out from the tailgate.

Continued from page 14 The 3.5L EcoBoost V6 employs twin turbochargers to produce 365-hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, and is, quite simply, an amazing engine with just a hint of turbo lag and excellent response. A six-speed automatic is the only transmission available in the F-150, which also has a towing/hauling mode that enables the truck to compensate for road conditions and grades when moving heavy loads. It’s no surprise that the F-150’s turning radius is big, making the truck cumbersome in tight city streets and parking lots. Putting that aside, the handling is surprisingly good for such a large vehicle, and the truck feels stable and well-planted even when the bed is empty. One of the most impressive aspects of the previousgeneration F-150 was how amazingly quiet it was on the road, and the current model may be even better, thanks to a stiffer frame, improved body mounts, and a host of other improvements designed to reduce noise, vibration, and harshness.

Ram continues to be a bright spot in the automaker’s vehicle line-up. Toyota Tundra Starting at $26,195, the Tundra comes with two engine choices: a 4.6L V8 generating 310-hp and 327 lb-ft of torque, or a 5.7L V8 with 381-hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. Toyota’s full-size truck gets better with every generation, and at this point the only thing it lacks is the intensely loyal customer bases of its rivals.

We can get off this slippery slope by gaining a wider view of our partners and our relationships. Start by resolving never to say “never” or “always.” 2. Inaccurate mindreading It’s great when we’re so used to our habits and preferences that we know just what the other wants. It makes meal planning and gift buying much easier. Mindreading can push us apart when it’s not so accurate and it leads to anger and resentment towards one another. We can make incorrect assumptions about our partners’ motivation behind acts of commission and omission. If our partners forget an important date, we might assume that they don’t really care about us, although this probably isn’t the case. Sometimes we assume that our partners know what we want and how we feel even if we don’t express this in words. Some people

decide to leave a relationship when their needs have not been met. Too often they make this decision having never expressed those needs. Hurt or angry feelings can fester and brew in our own minds. If we don’t check out our assumptions and express how we feel early on, we can grow further apart while our negative feelings simmer and eventually boil over. 3. Emotional arguments We’ve all heard the advice about never going to bed angry, but when one or both partners is very angry, a time out is better than an escalating argument. In a tantrum, a five-year-old will act like a toddler and an adult like a child. In anger, we can say things we will regret and cause greater harm to our relationships. Each partner has to take responsibility for his or her own emotions and disengage long enough to control anger as soon as it starts to simmer. A couple should agree on their rules of engagement and disengagement. When is it OK to take a time out and when is it OK to resume a discussion in a calm environment?

Each of us is unique. We are a complex mix of the strengths and weaknesses of our parents, and to this mix, we have our own idiosyncracies. Our beliefs and behaviours are shaped by our experiences. So each couple is unique: in how two unique individuals relate, how we get along and how we don’t. The strengths and problems of each couple are not generic, but there are common communication traps through which we all may stumble. 1. All or nothing language In real life, I’ve never met any cartoon characters, but when things aren’t going well, we can talk about the people we live with as if they were. None of us is so black and white. None of us is all good or all bad. When we start off statements about our partners with, “You always . . .” or “You never . . .”, we perpetuate in our own minds skewed and biased caricatures of them. The more we reinforce an ever-narrowing view of them, the less likely we are to see evidence to the contrary. We only see what we let ourselves see. This is one of the ways we can slide into ever more negative views of one another.

Young entrepreneurs find a niche in Nooch BY MICHELLE HOPKINS

mhopkins@richmond-news.com

CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

Self-starters Jonathan Grand Pierre (left), Shalley Lau and Brandon Majcher recently opened Nooch Snack & Chill where the food is fresh and atmosphere relaxed.

Sometimes, the perfect recipe for success comes together through happenstance. It starts with Brandon Majcher. A Grade 8 student at Eric Hamber secondary, Majcher was a self-described troublemaker. “Once I was told my punishment was to work in the cafeteria during my lunch hour,” quipped the 29-yearold chef. “The ladies in the kitchen liked me and so they kept me on all year.” It wasn’t much of a reprimand for Majcher, as he did most of the cooking at home. “We were really big on family dinners,” he added. “My stepdad was from Africa and he taught me to cook southern cuisine and lots of barbecuing.” Majcher spent a few years honing his culinary skills at various high-end restaurants including Kettle of Fish. Fast forward a few years, Jonathan Grand Pierre, a driven young entrepreneur, meets Majcher while dining at his downtown

bistro, Coka Mocha. “I told Brandon that one day we would open a restaurant together … he initially didn’t believe me,” said 25-year-old Grand Pierre. Majcher nods and added: “Jonathan put together a plan and then he talked me into it.” Grand Pierre appears to be a born entrepreneur. Without a business degree, the savvy young businessman extensively researched the area he chose to open an eatery and worked to create the concept he had already visualized in his head. “It’s a destination, there’s no foot traffic here,” he said of Nooch, which is situated behind Ikea on Jacombs Road. Meanwhile, 22-year-old Shalley Lau had a dream of one day opening a restaurant. Lau immigrated from Vietnam with her family when she was five years old. Lau said growing up poor in East Vancouver, she appreciated food. “I always worked in restaurants starting at McDonalds,” said Lau.

“I met Jonathan when I worked at Kobe’s Japanese Steakhouse … my manager sat us at the same table one night when I wasn’t working.” Lau went on to say all three had unwavering faith in what they were doing. “Brandon is such a great chef and Jonathan really did his research right from the start. He said we needed to create personal relationships with our clients, by making sure we knew their names and greeted them as they walk in,” Lau said. The three pooled their money together, borrowing from family and using up all their savings. “Financially, it was a tough go but we believed in what we were doing,” said Grand Pierre. Together, the three young people opened up Nooch Snack & Chill. The concept is simple — serve up healthy, casual bistro style cuisine in a fun, warm atmosphere and they will come. And come they have. While the News was there, a steady stream of

regular customers came in for lunch. The place is lively and upbeat, with some Bob Marley tunes wafting in the background. It’s decorated in red and white, with splashes of colour coming from the artwork by a local artist. But it’s the food that will keep them coming. The menu is small but well thought out. “My food has metamorphisized into its own style through my personal tastes,” added Majcher, who is growing his own herbs on the property and hopes to add vegetables soon. “The food is made from scratch every day and we designed a menu that offers items that are healthy and many organic, and affordable.” Nooch Snack & Chill is open for breakfast and lunch, Monday to Friday. They also do catering and private functions. “It has gone well beyond what we thought … we are big in catering meetings and conferences for a lot of the local businesses and large corporations, “ added Grand Pierre.

93-year-old vet recalls early life in Richmond BY MICHELLE HOPKINS

mhopkins@richmond-news.com

When Dr. Joe Lomas began his veterinary practice in Richmond, it costs his clients $15 to spay a dog or $10 for a cat. When he moved here from Maple Ridge in 1949, the population was 9,000, the land was mostly farmland and there was only one traffic light (at the corner of what is now No. 3 Road and Westminster Highway). Specializing in larger animals, Richmond was the place to be for the young veterinarian. “In Sea Island alone there were 4,000 milking cows,” he said with a smile. “I was also the official veterinarian for the B.C. Racing Commission for 13 years. “I looked after the horses at Lansdowne and Hastings Park racetracks.” His duties, he added, consisted of examining the horses for overall health and wellness. Recently, the News sat down with Lomas. At 93, Lomas loves to regale guests with tales of his early days in Richmond. The kindly gentleman, who is renowned for his famous lattes and cappuccinos, is originally an easterner. He was born the eldest of seven on Nov. 16, 1917 in Hamilton, Ont. After graduating from high school in 1936, he went to work at Wallace Barnes Springs factory. Lomas said the work was often repetitive and tedious. All that changed when he was laid off so that the factory’s superintendent could give his job to his

girlfriend’s brother. It was the best thing to happen to Lomas. As a child, he used to tell his mother that he wanted to be vet. “So when I was laid off, my mother asked me why don’t I go to veterinary school,” he said. Lomas was accepted into the Ontario Veterinary College in 1939. After graduation, early in his career the young vet worked as a meat inspector in a slaughterhouse. He made $1,429.00 a year. One of Lomas’ early highlights was when the he was assigned to care for 802 horses being shipped to Europe under the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Association (U.N.R.R.A.). “I was asked to take the last shipment out of Canada to Gydnia, Poland on Oct. 11, 1947,” he said from his Richmond home. “I was fortunate to have arrived there with all the horses alive.” He came to B.C. in 1947, and lived in Maple Ridge to head cattle artificial insemination. In 1949, he moved to Richmond because Lomas had an opportunity to look after the cattle of pioneering Richmond families such as the Gilmores, the Mays and the McKims. “I practiced out of my home at the time,” Lomas said. He paused for a moment and recalled a funny tale. It was January 1, 1952. Lomas and his first wife lived near a volunteer fire station. The siren was blaring and no one was answering

CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS

Dr. Joe Lomas was one of Richmond’s first animal doctors. He opened Richmond’s first veterinary hospital, Richmond Animal Hospital in 1955 and a few years later would work side by side with Marian (right) who became his wife. the distress call. As Lomas put it in his memoir: “I’m assuming the men were too inebriated to coherently register the sound of the siren, never mind pulling themselves together to answer it. So, I phoned the station at 3 a.m. and the fire chief’s wife told me the chief, Charlie McCullough, needed help.” Lomas rushed to the lumber mill, which was all ablaze. Wet and cold, Lomas held a leaking hose for two hours before he was “thankfully” called away by Les Gilmore, who owned Richmond farms, a large dairy farm. “He had an emergency with one of his cows and wanted me to come as soon

as possible,” said Lomas. “I smiled and handed the hose to the police officer. “I was never so happy to get away from there.” In 1955, after the larger farms started moving out of the area, Lomas built and opened Richmond’s first veterinary hospital — the Richmond Animal Hospital on No. 3 Road. (It still stands today). He built up a successful practice with his second wife, Marian, who was also a veterinarian. “We worked on everything from cows, horses, to dogs and cats, and even canaries,” he said, adding he built his hospital on a section of nine acres he owned. “We worked hard in

those days, typically from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.” In fact, Lomas said, in 1964, a killer whale called Moby Dick was captured and he was asked to look after it. “He was the very first whale in captivity,” he added. “I took myself off the case when they wouldn’t listen to my advice on how to treat him and Moby Dick died soon after.” Lomas met Marian in the fall of 1962. Les Gilmore called him one day and told Lomas that he ran into a vet student he knew while in Toronto for an agricultural fair. “Marian told Les that she wanted to do her three-

month internship in either the Maritimes or B.C.,” said Lomas, looking fondly at his wife of 42 years. “I wrote to Marian and told her that if she wanted a job, it was hers.” She worked for Lomas in the summer of 1963. At the time, Lomas was going through a bitter divorce. He bid her adieu. Fate intervened in May 1964. “I accidentally cut my hand, severing nerves and tendons and so I needed someone to run my practice,” he said. “I asked Les to call Marian and see if she would come to work for me for a month. “The rest is history … we married in July of 1969.” Because of a heart condition, Lomas had to sell his practice in 1971. As a tribute for his 90th birthday, his niece Mary Ann Baynton, wrote a special edition memoir titled Random Memoirs, highlighting an illustrious career and a life well lived. Today, Lomas likes to spend time with his two children and three grandchildren or engage in a mean game of cribbage. However, until a few years ago his greatest hobbies were photography, fishing and gardening. “One year, I grew a large pumpkin that weighed in at 216 pounds,” he said. “I also grew kiwi fruit, and have harvested as many as five thousand in one crop from just two vines.” With a firm handshake, Lomas said goodbye with a promise of a return visit for the best cappuccino ever.

Avoid/indulge same thing I was recently given the gift of listening to the conversations that took place at a five-day retreat held at the Omega Institute with world renowned author and teacher, Gangaji. KEEP IT Typically, when people come together in this way it is with the intention of discovering peace and fulfillment. Her teachings are an invitation to shift your allegiance from the activities of your mind to the eternal presence of your being. In one of the meetings, Gangaji asked the participants to ask themselves: What do you avoid and what do you indulge? These questions can really help us to see the role the mind plays out in our lives and how we respond to situations that arise. As you ask yourself these questions you might find that both avoidance and indulgence are present at the same time. In trying to avoid something in your life that you don’t like or don’t want to deal with, you may discover you indulge in something else merely to escape that which you are avoiding. It becomes a cycle. If we just open ourselves to that which we are avoiding, there would be no need to indulge in anything. We can open to the feeling or emotion that is present, without acting on it. What do you indulge in when life is going sideways? Self inquiry can give you

amazing insight. If you tell yourself the truth, you can then stop repeating old patterns that don’t serve you. Stop avoiding that which wants your attention, and stop indulging in something to SIMPLE escape the avoidance. What are you left with if you stop and do nothing about a situation? As you ask yourself this questions with awareness, you may begin to see the pattern. For some people indulgence is expressed in over working, over shopping, or over eating. Indulgence could also be expressed in playing out some kind of drama or ongoing story. There are many ways to avoid things. They will continue to arise if you continue to avoid them. When you notice any of these situations, you can choose not to follow the old patterns and simply stop. Be with the feeling. You can choose to drop the narrative you tell yourself once you’ve discovered what you avoid and indulge. Begin by making a list of the things you avoid and those you indulge and as they arise over the coming days or weeks be aware and check into the feeling that is underneath, and be with that without moving in any direction.

Sports Nass selected to Team B.C. for Midget Box Lacrosse Nationals Richmond lacrosse standout Cody Nass will be wearing Team B.C. colours this summer. Nass has been named to the provincial team for the National Midget Championships, slated for July 31-Aug. 6 in Whitby ON. His selection came after an extensive tryout process that concluded with a recent three-day camp in Penticton. After getting past the initial district selection stage, Nass participated in three games in Penticton which resulted in the number of potential players cut in half, before one more tryout game. The roster was then finalized by head coach Tyson Leies and his evaluator team. Nass is not only a key member of the Richmond Roadrunners at the Midget level but is a regular call-up with the Intermediate “A” team as well where he has managed 13 points in just six games. His outstanding play was recognized

last season when he was named the association’s Midget Player of the Year. He also earned similar honours playing for Richmond’s U16 side in field lacrosse. Nass’ strengths are in his solid offensive play, having been his teams’ top scorer in the box and field versions of the game. He has been recognized for his excellent vision, sound stick skills and the ability to move the ball quickly. After playing lacrosse in the summer and hockey in the winter, he made the difficult decision to drop hockey a couple of years ago and focus on lacrosse full-time to meet the demands of playing at a high level. He still participates in school sports and maintains his marks. Ness also plays field lacrosse for the Burnaby Mountain Selects program which helps promote players for potential university scholarships by playing at scouting tournaments in the U.S.

Richmond’s Weber wins B.C. Amateur Hockey’s top coaching award

Guiding Team B.C. to its first gold medal in over three decades at the Canada Winter Games has helped Russ Weber earn the province’s top coaching award. The longtime Richmond resident received the Ernie Gare Award as B.C. Hockey’s Coach-of-theYear during the organization’s

AGM last weekend in Penticton. B.C.’s memorable run in Halifax was capped by an 8-4 victory in the final in front of nearly 11,000 fans. It was B.C.’s first gold in men’s hockey since

Russ Weber

1979 when the competition featured junior “B” players. It is now an under 16 tournament. B.C. got off to a somewhat of a slow start — going 1-2 in roundrobin play with losses to Quebec (5-4) and Ontario

(5-1). It was still good enough for a quarter-final berth and that’s when B.C. started to roll with wins over Manitoba and Ontario. The Gare Award recognizes Weber’s leadership and commitment to hockey that has allowed his players to flourish and continue playing the game he loves.

The retired Vancouver Police officer has been involved with coaching in B.C. since 1993 where he started in Pee Wee and moved onto to a variety of levels. The former Richmond Sockeyes head coach also guided the Seafair Islanders Bantam AAA team this past season.

Cancer June 21-July 22: It’s a jumbled week, careening between great luck and unexpected rebuffs. Your energy, charisma and effectiveness are at a yearly high, so you can easily handle all this. Your career or ambitions demand behind-scenes agreements or research (or government liaisons) all month. Midweek (especially Wednesday) you could find just the right data or “note” to bring about co-operation from another. But forget about co-operation Thursday/Friday. Your career, VIPs and parents act unpredictably now to 2019, favouring you Monday, impeding you Thursday. Ah, well. Romance Saturday! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Lie low, rest and recuperate. Contemplate and plan. Be charitable, spiritual, deal with government agencies. All these bring peace, affection and good fortune. Your hopes rise all July about a legal, educational, international, cultural/ social or love matter. Good, but be “mild” in this – if you push it or depend on it too heavily, you could weave a subtle trap for yourself (or simply face disappointment) especially around July 22. Despite your weariness, social matters arise, and you find a new talkativeness, humour – good! Be cheerful but cautious in dealing with a boss Tuesday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your hopes rise, as fun, flirtations, entertainment, popularity and social delights flow around you! You’ll meet (now and for 15 years) fascinating, alluring, elusive and puzzling people. You can let this drive you to distraction, or you can fall in love – “perfect partners” are here! But don’t fall for an alcoholic, drug addict, hopeless dreamer, con artist, porn star or anyone with OCD. These types are easy to spot. (And a con artist will find you invulnerable if you’re – paradoxically – unselfish.) All July, don’t get steamed about, pushy in, nor invest in, your career.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent lies on home, family, real estate, security, garden, nutrition – and ending stale situations. This whole area flows sweetly, even luckily, most of July. One of the situations you end might be a relationship that you once felt defined your life. Despite all this “down home” and “ending” stuff, the weeks ahead are unexpectedly romantic – but the romance is casual, friendly rather than explosive. (The eleven months ahead bring easy sensual links.) Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday. Relationships bloom with significance Wednesday night to Friday: one ends, one starts? Taurus April 20-May 20: The emphasis lies on communications, errands, paperwork, reports, news, details, casual acquaintances, siblings and “everyday busyness.” Money flows swiftly to you and away from you all month – be smart, bank it; avoid spending or you could end up poorer. A major (wrong) temptation to spend could occur around July 20-24 – careful! For 14 months (Aug. 30, 2012) investing, paying down debt, dealing with “net worth” is a lot luckier than spending – think “us,” not “me.” Home-related discussions fill July – they’re a road to future pleasure! Downplay differences Friday. Gemini May 21-June 20: The main accent’s on money, possessions, sensual attraction, memory, rote learning and surface appearances. These flow quite luckily all July (especially Monday morning) but run into some surprises and barriers Thursday/ Friday – avoid shopping these two days. Especially avoid high-tech stuff, don’t finalize investments, and DON’T push for sensual/sexual intimacy. You feel more active, restless, curious, communicative this month – a short trip (or two) could take you to friends, to optimism and hope – go! Romance appeals but isn’t easy Wednesday night to Friday. Step cautiously.

The Richmond News July 1, 2011 A29

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Be ambitious. Your career and prestige relations are blessed with graciousness and good luck all July. This week is packed with planetary aspects both good and obstructive; most of these operate in communications, daily events, and other “light” zones. In a broad way, Sunday/ Monday are easy, Thursday/Friday are difficult (a career choice) and the rest are mixed. Take care with legal, international and educational matters: these grow intense all month, and are double-edged. You could find great agreement, or trip on angry hassles. A light touch works best. Popularity grows! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The emphasis lies on discovery of reasons, of the “why” – and on international travel, love, cultural rituals, society’s raison d’etre, education, publishing, law, abstract thought. It’s a gentle, peaceful time – though this week has so many jumbled and surprising events that the peace might only be within you. I mentioned love – that’s a big theme for the fifteen years ahead. One of your favourite signs, Cancer, is in true love territory, also – and might approach you Saturday. Popularity, hope fill Tuesday/Wednesday. Lie low Thursday/Friday. You shine with charisma Saturday! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Mysteries arise all week, but in most instances these are light or social mysteries, such as a phone number w/o a memory, gossip, a “why’d he do that?” A more significant wonder – or choice – might arise Friday/ Saturday, about money, an investment, inheritance, or a spiritual, health or government situation. If you’re not sure what action to take these two days, just stand back and observe: plans will form soon. Earlier, Sunday/Monday are gentle, wise. Be ambitious Tuesday/Wednesday. Hope arrives, Thursday. All July, relationships intensify: love’s good, fighting’s hard.

July 3 - 9, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The accent lies on relationships, relocation, opportunities, opposition, contracts, negotiations, and dealing with the public. This week is jumbled; misunderstandings can arise. Still, others treat you with affection and grace. Be sure to return the favour Friday, when you might be a little self-involved or stubborn. Ferret out secrets Sunday/Monday – you’ll like what you learn. Wisdom, understanding, gentle love visit midweek. Avoid arguments Tuesday morning. Be ambitious Thursday, but realize unpredictable elements at home might undermine career ”timing.” Hopes soar Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Tackle chores all week – but practise safety. Your romantic courage grows all July. This might spur you to approach someone Sunday/Monday or Wednesday night to Friday. Go, have fun, but accept that experience is its own reward. Success could come, initially, in the pursuit of intimacy (or investments) Monday-Wednesday, but make sure all ethical or legal factors are in place. Ultimately, you might decide this week was better spent on work! A deep insight, secret, ally – or help from an agency – can bring splendid luck on real estate or family fronts. Be ambitious Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Romance fills this week, and some stunning moments can a) bring a locking of eyes that amazes you, or b) a certainty that true love exists or c) both. But true love’s course doesn’t run smoothly this week, so be prepared to jump between intrigue/elation and frustration. By Friday, you’ll experience a deep, subtle knowledge that love is either dawning, or is, in this case, part of the past’s trash pile. All July, beware your temper, especially at home. A friend’s words could point to wish fulfillment midweek! Saturday’s gentle, wise. Don’t move into a new home before Aug. 3. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
