Street racing shame

Leaving behind the excess and bravado of the past, the reinvented Chrysler claims a sense of responsibility that hasn’t been associated with the Detroit-based car manufacturer for a long time.

A former teenage street racer talks about his years of “stupidity” and how he walked away unscathed after a high speed blowout and flip.

Bank feeds city’s body, mind and soul

News partners with Richmond Food Bank to help make merrier Christmas BY EVE EDMONDS

eedmonds@richmond-news.com

Preschool programs, expressive art therapy, nutrition classes — welcome to the Richmond Food Bank. “People don’t know about all the things that going on here. That’s the message we want to get out,” explained Margaret Hewlett, executive director of the Richmond Food Bank. In fact, Hewlett doesn’t like to refer to the food bank as a warehouse, because although it does warehouse food, that image doesn’t do justice to the cozy little corner set up for library time. Nor does it reflect the food bank’s “ageless volunteerism” initiative in which teens and seniors work together to sort food, enjoy a nutritious lunch and take advantage of other services, such as expressive art therapy. Hewlett stresses that the food bank has no intention of duplicating what other community groups are doing, “but we can provide a link.” One of the challenges community groups have is in connecting with the very people they aim to serve. If a family is in crisis, for example, they might not have the time or resources to look into a quality preschool program or get to a health clinic. But they need dinner and will show up at the food bank. “We like to think of ourselves as a hub, that people can come and get food and get connected.” As such, Richmond Addictions Services, Vancouver Coastal Health as well as Pathways, a clubhouse for people with mental health issues, all now have a presence at the food $

We will question the notion of philanthropy. While corporations and individuals often show great generosity in supporting the food bank, some argue that the economic system those same corporations and individuals benefit from is what’s creating the need for food banks in the first place. To quote Martin Luther King Jr., “Philanthropy is commendable, but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the circumstances of economic injustice which make philanthropy necessary.” And then there is the role of government and Hewlett’s belief that governments too often adopted a corporate model, much to the disadvantage of society as a whole.

A young Richmond woman, once a contestant in the Miss BC pageant, is among the 25 suspected Stanley Cup rioters charged by the Crown. Sophie Laboissonniere, 20, faces charges of breaking and entering and participating in a riot. The two Laboissonniere charges laid against Laboissonniere are part of a 61-charge dossier approved by the Crown, as recommended last month by the Vancouver Police Department (VPD). The former McMath secondary student, a budding interior designer, entered the 2010 Miss BC contest and featured in a Richmond News article about the local entrants. Since the riot in June, it’s been an exhaustive process for the VPD and Crown to get to the stage of actual charges being laid. “We are very encouraged by the approval of these 61 charges and we see Progress page 4 09143553

Another ‘temporary’ artwork may stay Biennale organizers ask city to hold onto the piece until next year

BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

Another unwanted Biennale artwork looks set for an extended stay in Richmond. Organizers of the “temporary” public art exhibition have asked the City of Richmond to hold onto Wind Waves at Garry Point Park until the end of next summer. The piece — which resembles a giant wavy, red ball — has been a fixture in the park since the 18-month exhibition kicked off in the fall of 2009. But since the event ended in the spring of this year, Vancouver Biennale has been unable to sell the artwork, which has been valued in the past at around $400,000. If they do find a buyer between now and the end of August 2012, the piece will move on. Until then, Biennale has requested the people of Richmond enjoy Wind Waves for the time being and it be included in the organization’s educational program, “Big Ideas,” for the remainder of the school year. “An extension to the exhibition at Garry Point Park would continue to be a benefit to the artistic and cultural enrichment of the city,” wrote the city’s public art planner, Eric Fiss, in a report which will be presented to the parks and recreation committee this week. “The extended temporary exhibition … will continue to offer many opportunities to enrich the city’s cultural fabric, promote tourism, advance art education and provide a legacy of community engagement.” Wind Waves, along with the other temporary Biennale works of art, are due to be removed at the end of this year. Should city council agree to allow Wind Waves to stay a little longer, the Biennale will be responsible for all maintenance and insurance coverage for risk of loss, release and indemnity. The Biennale will also be responsible for all

Wind Waves, a piece from the 2009 Biennale, may stay at Garry Point Park until next summer. costs associated with the removal of the work from the site. The News reported last month that the new owner of another Biennale piece — Water #10, at River and Cambie roads — asked the city to hold onto the artwork for another year or two until a new housing development in north Richmond is ready to receive it. Developer David Chung, who bought the piece for an undisclosed price, told the city he won’t be ready to relocate the artwork to his new Parc Riveria development on River Drive until 2013. Like Wind Waves, all costs associated with keeping the artwork in its location will be borne by the owner.

Despite publicity, good and bad, surrounding the 18-month long Biennale, only Water #10 out of the 15 exhibits in Vancouver and Richmond has been sold. The controversial Lenin/Miss Mao piece at Alderbridge and Elmbridge ways was valued at $700,000. Organizers of the Biennale also had to cancel their prestigious wrap-up gala auction due to poor ticket sales. It later issued a statement saying Vancouver perhaps wasn’t the right place for the type of artwork on show, insisting a more international market would have been a better fit. It’s now trying to flog the artworks on the aforementioned international stage.

Former street racer helps anti-racing program BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

As he tore along the road in his modified Honda Civic, 17-year-old Danny didn’t give a second thought for anyone but himself. So when he eyeballed the driver of a similarly suped-up Subaru, the Richmond teenager had no hesitation when he slammed his foot to the floor to engage in a deadly street race. Seconds later, at a speed of

around 160 kilometres per hour, Danny’s Civic suffered a blowout. Fishtailing and completely out of control, the reckless youngster’s car flipped over and skidded until it came to a stop, upside down. Incredibly, he got out of the car and walked away without so much as a scratch. “I was very lucky. I came out totally unscathed. I didn’t have a mark on me,” said the driver, who would only identify himself as

Danny. “But because I wasn’t injured, I thought I was invincible. At that age, what didn’t kill me, just made me more obnoxious.” Fast forward more than ten years and Danny, now 28, shakes his head when he looks back at his sheer “stupidity” of years of street racing. To this day, he still doesn’t know why he entered the world of racing cars through residential streets. “A lack of good common sense

I guess. I’d like to say someone pushed me into it, but they didn’t. I just wanted to do it,” he told the News. “I admit, it was exhilarating, especially not getting caught. I had a lot of attitude and bravado.” Danny spoke after stepping up to help raise awareness for the Resist the Race (RTR) anti-street racing initiative. RTR — formed by RCMP Sgt. Rob Quilley after his colleague see Guilt page 6

BC SPCA officials call it one of the most disturbing cases they have encountered in recent memory. Kendall Goheen, of Richmond, has been charged with nine counts of animal cruelty after he allegedly stabbed and killed three pets he co-owned with his ex-wife in October. The family’s 70-pound boxer, Maza, and two cats, Pepper and Liston, suffered multiple stab wounds and trauma before being placed in a freezer in Goheen’s home. When the SPCA arrived at the scene, Goheen refused to speak to the officers but left the bodies of the deceased pets in a

Rubbermaid container outside his house. Lorie Chortyk, B.C. SPCA’s general manager of community relations, said the evidence from the necropsy suggests that the animals were killed in an extremely brutal manner. “It is truly horrible to think of the terror and pain that these animals suffered,” said Chortyk. “We can’t bring the animals back, but we can ensure that we do everything in our power to seek justice for them and to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.” She said a warrant has been issued for Goheen’s arrest. The accused is believed to be currently living in Saskatchewan. No date has been set for Goheen’s first court appearance.

the first 60 cases.” “Having seen the incredible amount of work that went into the investigation on the front end, I realize what this Crown team was up against when we delivered the 163 charges for approval,” wrote Yeo in a press release. “Each report on each suspected rioter was well over 500 pages in length. “We are in the midst of

finalizing the next batch of charges to be forwarded to Crown in the coming weeks.” On Oct. 31, the VPD recommended 163 charges against 60 individuals. Other charges were laid against nine people from Surrey; two from Burnaby; two from Maple Ridge; eight from Vancouver; one each from North Vancouver, Delta and Seattle.

How to interpret a handwritten Will

In the case of Re Brooks Estate (reasons released last week), the Court was asked to determine whether the Will gave the Estate to a brother, or to nieces and nephews. The Will was one page, and handwritten. The assets, valued at about $275,000, are located in B.C. The wording was unusual. In the first main paragraph, the deceased left his property (stating the address of his house, and a legal description), and his bank accounts to his brother, the Executor. In the next paragraph, though, five relatives were to “share equally in my Estate”. To interpret a Will, the Court must place itself in the mind of the Testator, so as to ascertain his or her intention. The Court can rely on outside evidence but here the Court felt that the Will itself provided adequate evidence of intent. The Court felt that the Testator wanted all his nephews, nieces and the brother to share equally. It is I think fair to say that the Will did not clearly reveal the Testator’s intention. The reasons suggest that the Testator made the Will without any advice (which would have helped).

Guilt: Still embarrassed, ashamed Continued from page 3 Const. Jimmy Ng was killed years ago in a street race crash while on duty in Richmond — works to help youth understand the consequences of street racing. Mini Richmond, a major partner in the program, provides a luxury sports car for publicity events. It hosted an awareness day Tuesday, at which Danny spoke to people about his experiences as a former street racer. Danny said he was asked to get involved after spotting RTR’s call for volunteers on a car enthusiasts website. “I fix them, I modify them. Cars engulf my life basically,” Danny admitted. As a racer, Danny used a Honda Civic, owned by his parents, but which he had modified. “It was my first year of driving and I only had a learner’s licence, so I wasn’t even supposed to be out there. “(Street racing) continued until I was around 19. I had moved out of my parents’ house, and I simply couldn’t afford a car, so that was it.” He was 22 when he had his next car. But it wasn’t long before he ended up going back to “the street.” “I missed the rush and my stupidity was still there,” he said. “Everyone knew that if you wanted a race, you went to Richmond.”

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Sgt. Rob Quilley, founder of the Resist the Race program, talks at an Awareness day this week at Mini Richmond.

It took another few years before the light dawned on Danny’s dark addiction to street racing. “I got busted. That’s all it took. I was racing in West Van, and I got chased down by the police and got caught,” he said. “I got charged with excessive speeding and ended up paying around $1,000 in a fine. “And right around that point, the economy went down and I got laid off. I then had lots of time to think about my life.” Now a wheel-spin or two away from his 30th year, Danny’s “embarrassment” at his former life is still fresh

and at the forefront of his mind — not least after seeing the recent antics of the Richmond teens who raced down Highway 99 in their parents’ luxury sports cars. “I shook my head when I saw that,” he said. “I was ashamed when I watched them. If I thought more about my future back then, I would have realized that it can affect the direction of your life. They need to stop and think.” Danny still has a seriously modified car and he’s still involved in racing — but legally. “I go to the racetrack at Mission. That’s where I get my kicks now.”

Polygamy law requires a quick appeal B.C. Supreme Court Justice Robert Bauman has confirmed Canada’s polygamy law that says multiple marriages are illegal. Essentially, the judge’s 335-page ruling, handed down Wednesday after a 42-day case held earlier this year, says that Canada’s law is flawed but constitutional. The judge accepted the argument that polygamy is inherently harmful, siding with expert testimony that women in such relationships are at elevated risks, running the gamut from psychological harm through financial harm to physical harm. Bauman emphasized that these effects are not specific to certain locations but rather “they are universal.” That dealt with the argument that any harm in polygamous marriages comes from abusers. The judge has ruled that polygamy itself causes harm, not the way it is practised by certain people. However, Bauman said the law should be changed — without saying how — to exempt minors in polygamous relationships from prosecution. So the law on the books requires some tinkering. It’s also likely the judgment will be appealed. Leonard Krog, NDP critic for the attorney-general, is right on the money in calling for an expedited appeal process so that the prosecution of polygamists can go ahead. A stay of proceedings ended the prosecutions of Winston Blackmore and James Oler, charged in 2009 with practising polygamy in Bountiful. That should never happen again in Canada.

CHOICE WORDS

Look more into poverty stats

The Editor, Re: “Offshore dollars pose possible cause to poverty rates,” Letters, Nov. 30. I agree with Julie Halfnights’s letter on Richmond poverty statistics. We do have poverty in Richmond, particularly young people who have lived in Richmond with their families and are now on their own, but cannot find affordable housing. However, I do not believe that 31 per cent of children under 18 in Richmond live in poverty. A few years ago, in the Vancouver Sun, there was a map of Metropolitan Vancouver. The Terra Nova area in Richmond was at the same poverty level as the Downtown Eastside area. The houses in Terra Nova are probably at least 1.5 million dollars. We file our income tax every year and we pay tax on the money we have earned here. So if all of a family’s money is made elsewhere and is not declared as income, Statistics Canada naively says that a family is poor and living in poverty. No one checks on what kind of property you own or how many cars you have in your three-car garage. I do know that there are families in Terra Nova to whom all this does not apply. I would like to know how these poverty statistics are compiled, and I would like something done about rich people who “live at the poverty level,” but of course this will not happen.

Scorn for resistance leads to violence The governments of the western world are playing a dangerous game with their people, and they don’t even realize it. In the recent days, weeks, and months, we’ve seen discontent everywhere from Europe to North America. This is no surprise. The economy is lurching from crisis to crisis, the stock market is doing its best yo-yo impression, and regardless of whether there’s officially a recession or not, unemployment is everywhere higher than it was a few years back. So people are upset. They want change. They want things to be fixed. And what are we hearing from our elected leaders? Sit down and shut up. Broadly speaking, in a democratic country, there are three ways to effect change. You can go to the ballot box. You can protest. Or you can strike. Let’s take them in reverse order. In Britain, a general strike by public sector workers this week was aimed at protesting cuts to pensions. It is the largest one-day walkout in generations, with the workers upset that they’re being asked to pay more, yet wait longer to get fewer benefits. What was the British government’s response to this? “The strike is not going

Matthew Claxton PAINFUL TRUTH

to achieve anything, it’s not going to change anything,” said British treasury chief George Osborne. This is the response that has been coming from governments around the world, and here in Canada, too, when workers talk about striking or trying to hold the line against austerity measures. Then there’s protest. The Occupy Wall Street movement has been swept out of the parks and plazas it took over in most major North American cities. But while it lasted, it was a pretty big deal. The response to Occupy from the government? Well, those on the centre-left have been supportive — verbally. Their lack of action is telling. At least the right wing has been honest, with Newt Gingrich telling protesters to get a job and a shower. Ah, feel the raw contempt! He’ll make a great president. So protesting doesn’t work and striking is scorned, but what about voting in a new bunch? Well, that doesn’t seem to make much difference, either. And as far as I can tell,

there’s no western political movement, of the left or the right, that is free of blame. They were all more or less in favour of the policies that got us into this mess. They only varied on how fast they were willing to kowtow to the big banks and shyster mortgage lenders. So what’s left? When protest and democratic change are exhausted as options, the traditional next step is violence. Which is why the contempt of the rulers strikes me as suicidal right now. Violence is not likely to make things better. The record of violent revolutions has far more failures — the Reign of Terror, the October Revolution, the March on Rome — than successes. I think our leaders have forgotten the past, and are therefore doomed to repeat it. We were in this situation just after World War I, and it gave us Soviet Russia and Fascist Italy. We got there again in the 1930s and got Nazi Germany. In the 1960s, we got the Paris riots in ’68 and the Weathermen. Since then, mass political violence has fallen off sharply. But if A, B and C fail, some people are going to choose D. And D stands for death and destruction. Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance.

Letters PLANNING

Unhappy resident shouldn’t be allowed to hold up traffic The Editor, Re: “Lee thanks supporters and Brodie,” Letters, Nov. 25. In his letter, Richard Lee reports that, thanks to the efforts of Mayor Brodie, there will soon be a no-bus zone on Saba Road. Saba is the street directly north of the Brighouse Canada Line station and is the stopping point for some eastbound buses. Apparently the mayor has come to an agreement with the residents of this area to close Saba Road to buses. Most of these people bought condos within a block of this key station and now object to buses in the area. Have you wondered why No. 3 Road is still congested with traffic even though we now have the Canada Line? It is because the buses were never supposed to stop in the curb lane on No. 3 near the Brighouse station.

In the plans for this area, the empty space behind Brighouse station was designated as the bus loop, designed to facilitate transfers between buses and the train. Buses would enter the loop via the lane off Saba Road. There are two reasons why, as a major transit hub, Brighouse station should have a bus loop like those at Bridgeport and Marine Drive Stations. One: Without the loop, traffic on No. 3 Road will forever be impeded by buses stopping in the curb lane. Two: Brighouse passengers currently have to walk significant distances in order to make transfers. There are stopping points all the way from north of Saba Road to Cook Road, and down to Richmond Centre. Some passengers have to cross two streets in order to make a transfer. There are

Unforgettable Unforgettable HOLIDAY

commuters who regularly burst out of their bus at a dead run in order make connections almost a block away. This situation does not serve those who use transit, nor does it support Richmond’s claim to decent, accessible transit service. Latecomers who bought condos around Brighouse should not be calling the shots on a transit system that affects the entire community. The City of Richmond may have a group of unhappy residents around Saba, but it has much greater numbers of transit passengers whose buses pass through Brighouse and vehicle drivers who get caught in the No. 3 Road traffic jam. Richmond city hall desperately needs someone who can see the big picture and plan accordingly with this type of project. Marion Smith Richmond

Election victory for Garden City lands BY ALAN CAMPBELL

acampbell@richmond-news.com

The recent civic election in Richmond wasn’t just good news for the elected mayor and eight councillors — it was also a victory for the Garden City Lands Coalition. That’s according to the organization’s president Jim Wright, who, along with his fellow coalition directors, experienced a post-election epiphany when they realized the make-up of the new council. “It only occurred to our directors here after the election that all of the people elected, except for one, had agreed with our goal of keeping the lands in the ALR (Agricultural Land Reserve),” said Wright. “And looking forward, they are committed to the stewardship of the lands for recreation uses and for community wellness.” Wright not only sees the election results as a cause for celebration among he and his coalition cohorts — who have fought for years to keep

the lands locked in the ALR. “It’s a victory for everyone who was positive about keeping the Garden City Lands (GCL) in the ALR,” he said. “It’s a victory because we’ve been working to save the lands for a long time now and they’re now as safe as they possibly can be.” The canvassing of the civic election candidates as to their future intentions for the controversial lands was done prior to the election, where lots of information was distributed to all candidates at meetings and as part of an online survey. The one candidate who did not respond and was reelected was Coun. Evelina Halsey-Brandt, who has had a long-running verbal feud with Wright over her supposed position on the Garden City lands. The friction rose to the surface again last week in a letter penned by Wright and published in a local paper. Halsey-Brandt described the recent letter as one of “hate” and said she couldn’t possibly consider taking part

in a pre-election survey organized by someone who has a “personal vendetta.” She said her past and present intentions for the lands have always been for the good of the Richmond community and she didn’t take part in any pre-election surveys or sign any petitions. To help people gain firsthand knowledge of the lands, expert guide Michael Wolfe leads a free eco-tour of the area at 2 p.m. this Sunday, Dec. 4, starting at the Garden City Road entrance, 100 metres south of Lansdowne Road. The lands are still locked in a legal wrangle between the city and the Musqueam First Nation, which had part ownership of the parcel. Last year, just nine days after the Musqueam accepted the city’s offer of $60 million for the 55-hectare lot, the band launched a lawsuit against the city. The band claimed it had no alternative but to accept the city’s offer, since the land remained locked in the ALR, and blamed the city for not doing enough to have it removed.

Continued from page 12 You have the opportunity to make special memories every minute of every day. It’s the thought and the time spent together that are of value. Second, support the people you care about simply with your presence. Sit in the front row at the play in which they have a non-speaking role. Suffer through the Grade 6 clarinet rendition of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. It might feel torturous, but there aren’t many feelings that are better than looking up and seeing that someone showed up specially to see you do your thing. Third, don’t take the people you

care about for granted. Always thank a person when they do something that benefits you, even if it’s something they always do for you like laundry, cooking, or paying the bills. It’s easy to forget how much other people do for us. Fourth, be patient. We are all very busy. At the end of the day, we have to ask ourselves if what we got accomplished was more important than our relationships with others. Maybe it’s OK to not go to the bank if you run into a friend you haven’t seen since high school and she asks if you want to go for coffee. Maybe it’s OK if the reports don’t get done until tomorrow because it’s a sunny day and your son asked if you would like to go

for a bike ride. Fifth, be happy. If you smile a lot and you are genuinely relaxed while you are spending time with a person, that will show how much you care. Ask yourself which people you would be sad to lose in your life. Then ask yourself if you have been putting aside time to show them that you care. I just realized what I want for Christmas. I wish there was an atmosphere of caring all through the year. I could use some socks too. Happy Holidays.

Operation Red Nose Delta-Richmond kicked off its 2011 campaign last weekend by driving more than 200 people home safely from holiday festivities. “These last two years we have seen a large spike in the number of people using the service,” said Carlene Lewall, co-ordinator of Operation Red Nose DeltaRichmond. Motorists in Delta and Richmond, along with 11

other areas in B.C., can count on the services of the operation to get themselves and their vehicles home safely after a night of celebrations. On the first weekend of the season, 60 volunteers covered more than 2,500 kilometres to pick up and deliver party-goers, which also means the service needs more volunteers, according to Lewall. “We are very short on volunteers, especially this Saturday, Dec. 3 and New Year’s Eve.” Operation Red Nose is

available between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m., Dec. 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17 and 31. To arrange a ride, call 604-943-0460, 30 to 45 minutes in advance of desired pick up time, and 60 minutes in advance after midnight. The service is free, but donations are appreciated. All proceeds benefit the Delta Sport Development Centre. To volunteer with Operation Red Nose, visit www.operationrednosedelta.com or call Delta Gymnastics at 604-943-0460.

SEDAN

BY DAVID CHAO

Design

PHOTO SUBMITTED

The 2012 Chrysler builds upon the design and power of the 2005 version. acquired controlling interest from the Canadian and US governments earlier this year. For its part, the 300 builds upon the bold design and powerful stance of the original 2005 version, with refreshed styling that maintains its unique place in the sedan market. However, the real difference is in the small details. Gone are the little annoyances that made the past model more bark than bite, replaced by an attention to detail that dramatically improves the overall experience. The engines are still big and powerful, but Chrysler would rather focus on

While many current family sedans lean toward sportier and more athletic exteriors, the 300 has more in common with super-luxury sedans such as the Audi A8 and Lexus LS, looking as if it was carved from a block of iron. Notable styling cues include the new LED daytime running lamps and elegant, trapezoidal grille. The 300 is upright and solid, but has a surprisingly trim figure thanks to the clean lines and subtle creases running the length of the vehicle. The designers have done an amazing job, conveying a sense of power and strength without making the car overly muscular.

The 300 employs an understated design highlighted by see Interior page 22

the cutting-edge eight-speed best incentives. transmission, fuel-efficient all-wheel-drive system and dramatically improved interior. If that’s not enough to convince you of the company’s transformation, consider that sales have increased for 19 consecutive months. Combine the numerous across-the-board improvements with a more humble approach to marketing, and you have a new Chrysler and a new 300 sedan. A company with higher expectations, and a vehicle that’s able to meet them.

Special to the News

If you need evidence that Chrysler has changed, look no further than the marketing for the redesigned 300 sedan. Not the sedan itself — we’ll get to that — but the marketing. In the latest commercial, an announcer speaks to the concepts of character, conviction, pride — and a fuel-efficient eight-speed transmission. Meanwhile, the sedan is shown driving confidently and serenely through the streets of Detroit, passing by school children, firefighters and families on its way to a house in the suburbs. The commercial extends the superb “Imported from Detroit” campaign, reinforcing a compelling theme of success and renewal through commitment and hard work. Leaving behind the excess and bravado of the past, the reinvented Chrysler claims a sense of responsibility that we haven’t associated with it in a long, long time. And that’s exactly what many of us have been hoping to see. The marriage between Chrysler and Mercedes-Benz in 1998 was supposed to be the catalyst for an improved Chrysler brand, but that relationship generated more frustration than synergy, lasting less than a decade and starting the American manufacturer down the path to its eventual 2009 bankruptcy. Credit for a kinder, gentler Chrysler instead goes to Italian automaker Fiat, which got Chrysler back onto its feet two years ago and became the majority shareholder when it

Performance

A new 3.6L V6 produces 292-hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, while the 5.7L HEMI V8 carries over from before with 363-hp and 394 lb-ft of torque. Then there’s the 6.4L HEMI V8 found in the SRT8 model, producing a staggering 470-hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional. As great as it is that Chrysler is pushing a fuelefficient eight-speed automatic, it’s a bit disappointing

PHOTO SUBMITTED

The inside design is highlighted by blueblacklit gauges.

that it’s only available for the 3.6L V6, and is an option on the base Touring model. It improves efficiency by roughly nine per cent, and that would be a welcome gain on the gas-hungry HEMI engines, which are stuck with five gears. American sedans have undergone major changes in the past few years, and the 300 is no exception. The handling is direct and predictable, while the ride quality remains smooth and easygoing. The eight-speed transmission comes with a “Sport” mode, but the 300’s forte is as a comfortable cruiser, getting you from point A to point B in relaxed style. From that standpoint, the base 3.6L engine is more

than enough for its purposes, and will hopefully render the 5.7L and 6.4L engines unnecessary over time.

Environment

The cabin is highly functional with loads of passenger and storage space, including a large glovebox and centre console, huge map pockets, illuminated cupholders and a folding rear seat to expand the already considerable trunk space. You can swap the small 4.3” touch panel for the excellent Uconnect Touch 8.4 Media Centre, which comes with a giant, 8.4” touch panel. The redesigned Uconnect system is responsive, easy to use, and upgradeable with a Garmin GPS navigation system.

Continued from page 20 excellent blue-backlit gauges and a smart-looking trapezoidal clock integrated into the dashboard. The cabin is comfortable, inviting. Chrysler has often cut corners on its vehicle interiors, but that behaviour appears to be a thing of the past. As far as build quality goes, the 300 is a vast improvement over its predecessor. It might not be perfect, but the materials, fit and finish have caught up with the rest of the auto industry.

Ye’s four golds leads Rapids showing at Langley meet

It was a tough weekend of racing in Langley for Richmond Rapids swimmers but also a great learning experience for all the athletes involved. The two day meet was great opportunity for novice and veteran competitors alike. For the veterans, the fifth annual Langley Olympians Short Course Invitational was a chance to train through a meet, endure some fatigue and gauge their early season progress. For head coach Robert Pettifer, it was an opportunity to see just how tough his athletes were. “It’s not easy arriving at the pool at 7 a.m., swimming four events, and then eight hours later repeating them all over again. It takes mental discipline and a little bit of guts,” explained Pettifer. “Finals are only about two hours long and for them to re-swim four events in that time period is very gruelling.” For the novice swimmers, it was a chance to experience what a heats and finals meet was like, not to mention dealing with the multiple events. Kevin Ye was tough as nails as he qualified his Canadian Age Group National time in the 200 breaststroke. This standard allows

Richmond Sockeyes visited Steveston-London secondary school last week where 200 tickets were presented to principal Jim Allison (second from left) as part of Mayor Malcolm Brodie’s Goals for Richmond Youth Program. In its second year, the program features $500 worth of tickets donated to local schools through a sponsorship deal the junior “B” hockey club has arranged with local businesses and individuals. Also pictured above are (L-R) Dean Allison (player), Don Taylor (Sockeyes Alumni), Mas Morimoto (Sockeyes community relations), Doug Paterson (Sockeyes co-owner) and Troy Kaczynski (player). The Sockeyes entered this week’s play with a 20-1 record.

Richmond Ravens hosting tyke jamboree at Ice Centre

CHRISTMAS SPECIALS

The Richmond Ravens know how to have fun and are throwing a party for their fellow players on Sunday at the Richmond Ice Centre (Coliseum). Their second annual Tyke Jamboree will see approximately 80 players from female hockey associations around Metro Vancouver come together to compete in a fun tournament to help raise the profile of girls hockey. “We want to raise awareness of what age we start our players, how much development opportunity they get and create an interest in female hockey in all communities,” says Patti Martin, President, Richmond Ravens. The Jamboree will divide the players onto mixed teams, giving the young players a chance to meet future opponents in a friendly, get-to-know-you style atmosphere. Reps from B.C. Hockey and the female committee director for the PCAHA will be in attendance to hand out medals and goodie bags, and help bring attention to what the grass roots level of girls hockey is doing. The event runs from 1:30pm to 4:30 p.m. at the Coliseum rink.

Enjoy a specially prepared festive dinner featuring traditional items such as Roast Turkey and mashed potatoes & Christmas pudding or many other local favorites. Reservations required

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Start nothing before Dec. 13. New (not old) money matters are stalled; the logjam will break Christmas Day onward. If purchasing holiday presents, keep it simple and refundable, as lemons abound. VIPs, bosses and parents look on you kindly to Dec. 20 – take advantage, approach, visit, do them favours, etc. (But DON’T launch new projects for them. If the boss wants you to begin a new project, diplomatically suggest a mid-December or January launch.) You impress everyone Sunday/Monday, but barriers to action remain: act Sunday eve/night. Chase money Tuesday/Wednesday. Taurus April 20-May 20: The general accent lies on mysteries, sex, subconscious urges, finances, investments and debt, and potential lifestyle changes. You’re lucky in these, though forward motion has been lacking since August. By late December delays will end – a legal, travel, educational, intellectual or international “element” will be the go-forward key. You might soon agree to wed a sexual partner. Think deeply before plunging. Make NO commitments, nor any new starts, before Dec.13. Lie low, rest Sunday/ Monday. Your energy rises Tuesday through Thursday. Romance lies below, wants to emerge! Gemini May 21-June 20: Relationships are foremost. Your popularity and joie de vivre rise Sunday/Monday. But avoid arguments or hasty driving to mid-afternoon Sunday. Turn from a hardto-convince person Monday. Retreat, rest Tuesday to Thursday. Sunday to Wednesday give a lucky boost to governmental, administrative and charity projects, and might also attract you to someone because he/ she represents a rest, comfort, safety. But at what cost (to him/her!)? Your energy soars Thursday night to Saturday: contain temper. Until mid-2012, you’re quick to laugh, rage. Start nothing important before Dec.13.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The accent lies on work, health, duties, a bit of boredom. Start nothing major before Dec.13. A former duty, chore or employment position might return – do it, grab it if unemployed. VIPs, parents and bosses are watching Sunday/ Monday – do your best, avoid temperamental words Sunday. Your hopes and happiness rise nicely Tuesday to Thursday – life’s worth living! The Sunday to Wednesday period opens doors to friendship, travel, even the kind of romance which, though light, could lead to partnership. Retreat to contemplate, rest and heal Thursday night through Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start nothing major, relationship nor venture nor project, before Dec.13. Your creative and romantic juices stir this month, you ride a winning streak (yes, you’ll tend to win at cards, etc.) and pleasures abound. An old flame is near or “present.” You might feel you have been tricked and betrayed or mistreated by others, especially the opposite sex, this last decade or two. But turn around: how have you treated those you suspected? When angered or ignored, you can be cruel. “Admitting” this can clear you for future love – which is going to be stronger, longer than past love. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Start nothing, buy nothing, before Dec.13. You might meet former neighbours, or visit family members you haven’t seen in awhile. “Home,” whatever it means to you, is a powerful draw – especially Sunday/Monday. Though you shouldn’t buy or rent a new place (or furniture) a former abode or prospect might be a good thing. But don’t act before 3:30 p.m. Sunday. A gentle, mellow mood arrives Tuesday to Thursday. Despite your lower energy, Sunday to Wednesday offer meaningful romance, or a potent creative urge, especially if you’re in nature. Be ambitious, not forceful, late week.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new before Dec.13, especially in communications, travel and record-keeping. A former friend appears, or you travel to revisit a familiar place. Your home life is blessed; you could, if seeking, find a domicile where affection and beauty will prevail, especially Sunday to Wednesday. Let this be a place connected to the past. (These days also bring tantalizing, but secret or private, attractions. Be honest, moral.) Relationships irk you to mid-afternoon Sunday, then they turn successful. But if you offer little (Monday) you get little. Wisdom, Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Remember, start nothing big and new before Dec.13. In particular, buy nothing – you are drawn straight to lemons now. Tackle chores and health concerns Sunday (much better after 3:30 p.m. PST) and Monday. Relationships offer both opposition and concord Tuesday to Thursday. Concord is more likely – and far more beneficial – as this entire week offers friendship and good conversation – with a romantic tinge. A big, lucky “concord” looms on the horizon, late month into next June. Finances, sexual urges and deep health matters arise Friday (some difficulties) and Saturday (climaxes?). Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Though your energy, charisma and clout are high, use them to tackle ongoing projects or to revive past ones – start nothing new before Dec.13. You easily impress others, gain their favour and get your way. If you’re single and have been hankering for some special company, contact that ex or old flame – AFTER 3:30 p.m. PST Sunday (or, less successfully, Monday, or, for more “grown up” results, after 9 p.m. Friday, into Saturday). Higher-ups are temperamental and impatient all week (until next July!) but you win them over, might even land a raise Sunday to Wednesday.

Dec. 4 - 10, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Avoid new starts before Dec.13. Get plenty of rest, eat and drink sensibly. Retreat from the hustle-bustle, avoid competition. Tackle past-due obligations, especially those involving charity, institutions, the government, or head office(s). This is an excellent “clean-up and clear-out” phase to prepare you for powerful action later this month. Pay attention to home-related concerns Sunday/ Monday. (Careful with tools, confrontations Sunday.) Romance, notional or real, visits Tuesday to Thursday – in fact the thrill of attraction fills the entire Sunday to Thursday period. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Start no new projects nor relationships before Dec.13. This is a happy, optimistic and forward-looking month, but you’d do better to look to the past this week. A former flirtatious friend might arrive, or the door could fling open to a goal that was once just “wishful thinking.” Dreams do come true! Careful with speech, driving Sunday – after 3:30 p.m. PST, all’s well. Tuesday to Thursday accents your home, security, family and real estate. A verboten romance could attract you. Actually, romance simmers all week, then emerges Friday (careful!) and Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Be ambitious, show your skills to higher-ups, study business and career topics, but don’t start new projects or relationships before Dec.13. Money hits an irksome snag Sunday, but smoothes out late afternoon into Monday. Talk, travel, and casual meetings fill Tuesday to Thursday – and could turn enmity into an amorous bond. You have a choice now to next July – you can love, or hate. The former is more likely this week, from Sunday to Thursday. Collapse into the comforts of home or still beauties of nature Friday/Saturday. Don’t let stress cause a fight Friday. timstephens@shaw.ca
