A penguin named ‘Steveston’ BY ALAN CAMPBELL

If you see a red-beaded penguin at the Vancouver Aquarium, holler “Steveston” and see if he turns around. He might well do, given that his new name is hailed after Richmond’s famous village. The penguin — one of seven African penguins recently arrived at the aquarium — and his buddies were all part of a month-long naming contest. Entrants were asked to think of B.C. places for names and more than 600 entries poured in. Richmondite Winnie Kwok stayed loyal to her hometown and offered up a poem, song and video dedicated to why one of the penguins should be called Steveston. For the full story and video, visit

Barn swallows find a condo BY MICHELLE HOPKINS

Every year for the past eight years, barn swallows have been nesting in an underground parkade in Steveston. This year, three families, consisting of 16 newly hatched babies and their mothers, have taken up residence yet again at Britannia at Steveston condominium complex. “They are really sweet and I could watch them all day,” said Geoff Snell, the site manager at the condo building. “When you pass by them, the little ones pop their heads up. “The mothers show up around the end of May to lay their eggs and stay around, usually, until the end of July, or until their babies can fly.” Snell said the migratory birds are a huge hit with the residents. “We put cardboard boxes underneath their nests for additional protection,” he said, adding everyone in the building enjoys listening to their twittering in the morning and watching

Once common bird now threatened the moms fly in and out at lightening speed. “They really aren’t a nuisance, unlike the crows and seagulls, and they keep the bug, especially the mosquito, population down.” But this is not just a cute bird story, it’s an important environmental one. As of this year, the barn swallow has been assessed as “threatened” by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada. (Visit “The barn swallow is one of the world’s most common bird species. Yet for decades now, swallows are declining at an alarming rate — and Canada is no exception,” said Snell. “Canadian Breeding Bird Survey data has shown that in the last 20 years, the population of barn swallows has fallen by 70 per cent.” According to All About Birds: The Cornell Lab of Ornithology, “These birds feed almost exclusively in flight,

flying lower than many other swallow species and often nearly hugging the ground or water surface. “They catch flies, mosquitoes, and other prey in midair above fields, marshes, lakes, and coastal waters, (acting as a natural way to reduce insect pests in the area). Most barn swallows now nest in man-made structures, usually near water.” Kris Bauder, Richmond Nature Park coordinator, said the number of barn swallows is dwindling largely due to the lack of habitat. “Historically, there were lots of barn swallows in Richmond,” she said. “This environment, the Fraser Delta, has everything they need to thrive and survive. What is problematic is that where they spend fall and winter, which is either southern United States or Central America, has lost a lot of their natural habitat due to human activity.”

Richmond doctor suspended A Richmond doctor has been suspended for three months after admitting to creating false appointments for patients and collecting payments from the subsequent invoices. Dr. Gustavo Jose Carvalho received payment of nearly $4,000 from the Medical Services Commission for the imaginary services, and has now consented to a host of penalties — including a $50,000 fine and reimbursement to the MSC. Dr. Carvalho must also undergo counselling, will practise under a supervisor and can see patients only when other clinic staff are present. The unprofessional conduct took place between June and September in 2009.

Mom, son have nowhere to run BY ALAN CAMPBELL

Abused mom barely gets by, wants to return to Australia

“I have no backup. Nothing. We just have each other. I wish I’d never come back.” Trapped in a world where she can barely afford to survive and fights every day to feed her cute 23-month-old toddler, Sarah rues the day she came back to Richmond from her native Australia. While heavily pregnant with her son, she fled to the safety of Sydney from Richmond Hospital, where she’d been admitted after another beating at the hands of her now estranged husband. After giving birth to Simon in Australia and hearing promises from her husband that he’d turned over a new leaf, Sarah was later wooed back to Canada. Now barred from taking her child out of B.C. — a province which prohibits her going home, but doesn’t seem willing or able to support her and her son — she admits leaving Australia was the biggest mistake she’s ever made. More than a year after gambling with a return to Richmond, she has suffered more abuse, moved in and out of a women’s transition home and now finds herself carving out a meagre existence in a basement suite in Richmond. After shelling out $800 a month on rent, hydro and laundry, Sarah, 39, and her beaming beacon of a boy somehow scrape by every month on the remaining $125.58 of her income assistance, receiving no help from the father. She combs the streets for free furniture and all their clothes are donated. The law dictates, however — due to a custody battle with the boy’s abusive Canadian father — the mother and son can’t leave B.C. together, let alone fulfil her desperate desire to return to the sanctuary and support of her mother’s Sydney home. Yet neither Sarah nor little Simon (names changed to protect their identities) are Canadian And who would employ a mother with a little citizens. And she wouldn’t dream of leaving her child who has no support? young son behind. “I have tried looking for work, but it’s tough “I basically have to feed myself and my with a small child and no one to look after him. son with $125 per month,” Sarah, a qualified “I just want to go home.

“I basically have to feed myself and my son with $125 per month.”


Sarah, 39, suffered abuse from her husband in Richmond and wants to return to her home in Australia where she has a better support system. However, until a custody battle is settled, she cannot take her 23-month-old son out of the province. The News will follow this story, and further explore why our social system seems unable to provide necessary support.

again. “The only thing he will take is milk and I’m buying several four-litre jugs every few days for him. We’ve both lost lots of weight.” To make matters worse, Sarah could have been getting another $100 a month in universal child tax credit if her husband hadn’t filed tax returns in her name and then cashed the cheques when she was in Australia having their baby. “He was filing stuff he shouldn’t have and cashing the cheques,” she said. “Now I owe the government more than $700, which they’re taking back out of the child tax credit. I’ve asked the police to look into that.” Back in 2009, however, when Sarah first met her husband while they both worked at Vancouver Airport, there was nothing untoward about his behaviour or anything to suggest abuse see Mom page 4

Learn when to take a gamble BY ALAN CAMPBELL

Imagine knowing when to go for it in life and knowing when to play it safe. Imagine being able to tee yourself up for the moment lady luck smiles on you or bracing yourself for impact when bad fortune befalls. These are just some of the skills Sally Liu says you can arm yourself with if you attend one of her “Luck Workshop” events, being run this summer through Richmond Continuing Education. Using Chinese astrology, the ancient art of feng shui and a computer, Liu claims people will be able to identify when luck — good and bad — is about to enter their lives. Depending on which cycle their luck is in, Liu said people will be able to either cash in on good fortune or prepare to ride out a storm. “I will explain to them how to translate the luck cycles from their birthday, so they can see where to make the most of their opportunities,” said Liu, who also teaches office and accounting programs at Richmond Continuing Ed and BIS Computer Training Center. “And they will also be able to identify what periods they may come up against some tough obstacles in their lives. Being forewarned is forearmed,” she added. “We will be punching numbers into a computer program and a sheet will get printed out. I will then show them how to read the print-out. “We will look at different celebrities and some relatives perhaps and how their luck has been translated. We won’t look at each individuals luck cycles in the (four-hour) workshop in front of everyone else.” She claims, in a modern computer lab, they will examine how Chinese astrology can accurately and systematically translate a person’s birthday into the luck cycles.

“This is a fun course that guides you through supported celebrity examples and encourages plenty of in-class practice,” she added. “At the end of the workshop, you will know that luck is no coincidence. Maybe you can gain control of your life with this knowledge. “Perhaps it has something to do with job cycles; if you know you’re entering a period of good luck and there’s a job you’ve always wanted, maybe you can study for it. “This also applies to investments. This is all based on science, not weird superstition stuff.” Liu said she introduced her technological approach to the science of astrology and feng shui and has set up many feng shui layouts for businesses and residents. She also offers “luck consultations” to students. “So far, I have achieved over 90 per cent accuracy in my readings,” Liu added. She said people that attend the workshops usually want to know how to better read themselves. If they have knowledge of themselves, they can help themselves more, she said. The “Luck Workshop” started last year and has grown in popularity, with another two one-day events lined up for July 21 and Aug. 17. “What got me started was when I realized that hard work and determination mean nothing when you are going through a bad luck cycle,” explained Liu. “On the contrary, things fall from the sky when you are going through a good luck cycle, although you may think it is due to your wits and endurance.” The workshop costs $55 for one session. You can register by logging onto the Richmond School District website at http:// index.asp. The course identification is 58888-01D. Good luck!

Watching a newborn baby die because of lack of medicine and medical equipment was hard on Richmond’s Micah Au. The 20-year-old wanted to put his emergency medical responder skills to good use so he spent seven weeks in Ghana, where he stayed with an Englishspeaking host family. “I wanted to do something meaningful,” said Au. “Typically, each summer I would go volunteer as a camp staff cadet in Vernon, but I aged out at 19.” So, he did a little research online and liked what he read about the Volta Aid Foundation (www.voltaaidfoundation. org). However, he didn’t expect to see babies die. In a blog which the 20-year-old wrote while in Africa, Au spoke about that baby boy: “I had just walked into the labour ward when I saw this newly born baby boy. His colour was a horrifying greyblue and I thought for a second that I had just walked in on a baby that had died. “He then started moving a little bit and once they gave him oxygen his colour improved. It was decided that he needed a higher level of care, so the doctor referred him to Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra. I was responsible for him during the transport.


Micah Au, 20, (fourth from left) volunteered with Volta Aid in Ghana.

“The oxygen tank didn’t fit inside the oxygen compartment of the hospital’s ambulance so they placed it in the main compartment, secured with nothing but two rocks. Again, there were absolutely no medical supplies inside so I demanded that I have an ambu-bag, an oral airway and suction before I left. “There was no way I was going to allow myself to be caught unable to care for him because I didn’t have the right equipment. He was still alive when we arrived in Accra … A couple of days afterward, we found out he had died in hospital two days after he arrived. That was hard. He’s the first patient who I’ve worked on that I’ve ever lost.” The Richmond secondary graduate see Au page 7

The Canadian Benefits Group (website: is an organization that provides benefits application and other assistance to disabled persons. The group claims that ignorance as to entitlements is a serious problem. They classify persons into two categories. The first are people who don’t know that disability tax credits exist. The second are people who know, but assume they won’t qualify, and so don’t apply for anything. Disability tax credits can be back claimed for up to 10 years (under the fairness provisions in the Tax Act), which can really help Canadians who may never before have thought they qualify. Qualification may entitle persons to other government benefits also. People can call the organization at 1-877-882-3633 if they don’t use a computer. This is worthy of investigation for anyone who may be disabled but has not yet gone through a formal application process.

U.S. healthcare boggles


lthough we share a border and a long history with one of the largest countries in the world, there are times when we really wonder about our neighbours. This past week the Supreme Court of the United States came out with a decision that allowed — barely — for the government to continue implementing a new health-care plan. In a 5-4 vote, the court allowed President Barack Obama to continue with his pledge to ensure that Americans can receive health care without losing their life savings. A plan, dare we say, that we in Canada take for granted and consider less than controversial. The new health-care plan in the U.S. is not even a distant cousin of Canada’s Medicare. Private insurers are still essentially in charge of the U.S. system — but now they have to abide by some rules such as providing health insurance to people with pre-existing conditions. The fact that U.S. citizens actually allowed insurance companies to stop insuring kids with disabilities, cancer survivors and those with chronic conditions still boggles the mind. And, to be sure, the court did not make its decision on what we might consider moral principles. It did so on a technicality — labelling the assessment for health care as a tax, and therefore in the government’s power to impose. This past weekend we celebrated Canada’s 145th birthday. It was also Saskatchewan’s 50th anniversary of the introduction of Medicare. Universal health care may have its limitations, but the principle that health care is a Canadian right and not a company’s right to profit from is not only a compassionate moral position, but also one that makes sense for our society. We are all connected — whether we like it or not. After the Supreme Court’s decision, some Americans said they were going to protest by leaving the U.S. and relocating to Canada. Please, spare us.


Thanks to new VCH program

The Editor, I am writing this in regards to a program called the “Early supported discharge & community reintegration program,” operating out of the Richmond Olympic Oval under the umbrella of the Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH). On April 8, I had a stroke and four seizures in one evening. I was rushed to Richmond Hospital, then to VGH for treatment and was then sent back to Richmond Hospital on April 24. After going through the physiotherapists there, I was referred to this program (which a lot of Richmond residents do not realize exists for patients being released from hospital) for further treatment. I had lost my writing and adding skills, was weak on the left side of my body and had hearing, speech and vision impairments. The entire team — physiotherapist, OT, speech pathologists, nurses, home care and dieticians, receptionist — welcomed me with smiles and open arms. They have been patient with me on a daily basis with continuous one-on-one treatment sessions. The only thing I see in their eyes is the final goal of making me a full human being again, and they work really hard at it. I have undoubtedly made major strides towards a full recovery and have returned to my sports and partially to work as of today. This has all happened in a span of eight weeks. A special thank you to the staff and to the VCH for making such a wonderful program like this available to the Richmond residents. Akber Dhanjee Richmond

Ninjas, bosons and the history of atoms What is the Higgs boson? A lot of people have been asking me about the Higgs boson today (for “a lot” read “up to two”), probably because they think I know something about particle physics and the creation of the cosmos. I don’t. However, I do like to throw a lot of big words into my conversations for no good reason, which has fooled people into thinking I’m well educated. Actually, I get most of my information about the universe from the daily horoscope section. Fun fact: There is a giant bull in the sky! How does he stay up there? Is the crab holding him up somehow? If your friends want you to bestow upon them some knowledge, use my handy guide to sounding really smart. Make stuff up. Throw in some references to ancient Greek philosophers, a weird anecdote or two, and make it sound mathy. Not too mathy, just enough math to scare off the lightweights. Allow me to demonstrate. To understand the Higgs boson, you have to understand atoms. Atoms are really, really, really small. They were discovered by the ancient Greeks, notably Leucippus, who theorized there must be invisibly small particles, because he could swear there was something in his

Matthew Claxton PAINFUL TRUTH

eye, but no one could see it! Not even him, and it was in his eye! Atoms! After Leucippus, philosophy declined, as the ancient Romans were more practical-minded, focused less on questions about the order of the universe, and more about the engineering of aqueducts, the building of roads, and the exact number of Gauls you had to stab to death before they would stop trying to ambush your soldiers. It wasn’t until the 19th century that scientists started getting serious again about searching for the smallest particles. Doctors discovered vitamins, chemists found basic elements, and there was even an illfated attempt to breed a smaller and more efficient scientist. Unfortunately, Toulouse-Lautrec was more interested in painting and turned his back on advanced mathematics. In 1912, Nikola Tesla isolated the first individual atoms — about a dozen of them — at his Colorado laboratory, while fending off an invading army of ninjas with his lightning cannons. (The ninjas were, of course, sent by Thomas Edison, whose ties

to ancient Japanese ninja clans is an oft-told tale.) Tesla presented the atoms to former U.S. president Teddy Roosevelt, but they were lost when Roosevelt was shot in the chest in an attempted assassination. The atoms are credited with stopping the bullet, however. Later that same year, Albert Einstein realized that matter and energy are the same thing, paving the way for people to turn atoms into bombs. This discovery that atoms were explosive did a great deal of harm to the nascent industry of creating bullet-proof shirts lined with atoms, inspired by Roosevelt’s shooting. Finally, in the late 1990s, while everyone else was watching Beverly Hills 90210, some scientists carved a 27-kilometre tunnel into the mountains of Switzerland. After selling the mountain’s creamy chocolate centre, they built the world’s largest particle accelerator and began their experiments. At first they made antimatter, but eventually they were encouraged to do some basic science and stop just blowing stuff up. They decided to get back to ferreting out very, very small particles, looking for a nice heavy one. Thus, the search for the Higgs boson began. Matthew Claxton is a reporter for the Langley Advance.

Fix HandyDart and keep TaxiSavers Open letter to TransLink, As I was unable to attend yesterday’s forum on TaxiSavers in Vancouver, I am writing to make you aware of my most recent experience with HandyDart and taxis. I recently went on a vacation, and to get to and from the airport, I booked HandyDart. The trip to the airport was no problem, but my return pickup did not happen. I had requested to be picked up June 19 at 9 p.m. as my flight was due to arrive at 8:24 p.m. I asked the dispatcher what would happen if we were a bit late in arriving and she asked me to call and advise them. As it happened, we were about 20 minutes late and, as with airline practice, those of us in wheelchairs are always the last to be taken off the aircraft. As soon as we landed and I was able to use my cell, I called the dispatcher and explained I had arrived and was waiting to be helped off the aircraft. This was at about 8:50 p.m. The dispatcher told me the driver was there and waiting for me. I asked that she contact him and ask that he wait, as I would be there by about 9:20 p.m. She said he would be going off shift at 9:10 p.m. so if I wasn’t there by then, he would leave. I again asked her to let him know that I had arrived and to wait for me.

After going through customs and getting outside at about 9:25 p.m., I did not see a HandyDart bus so asked one of the attendants if he had seen one. He indicated he did see one, but it had left about 15 minutes ago. I am very disappointed at this lack of flexibility on the part of HandyDart, especially when it comes to airport pickups. HandyDart had my flight times and could easily have checked my arrival and made the necessary adjustments to my pickup. I also did my part by calling and advising the dispatcher of my ETA, but there was no flexibility on their end. I ended up taking a taxi, but because I had arranged transportation with HandyDart, I did not have my TaxiSavers and as such had to pay full fare for my trip, which was more than 10 times what it would have cost me on HandyDart. So my request is this: Please improve HandyDart as it very much needs it, but not at the expense of eliminating TaxiSavers. The TaxiSaver program must be maintained as everyone has been asking since it became known TransLink was “scrapping” it. I, too, hope these forums and “engagements in meaningful dialogue” are not just a palliative exercise, and TransLink will do the right thing. Vincent Miele Richmond

Letters Oval puts customers last The Editor, I have been a member at the Richmond Olympic Oval since March 2011 and I visit the fitness room frequently. At the time I signed up, I was 25 years old, so I paid for the 19- to 25-year-old age group membership fee. Since I was to turn 26 that summer, the staff member at the oval guaranteed my rate would remain the same for two years, even after I turn 26. However, two days ago, I received an email informing me of a sudden increase in the membership fee. The woman told me in January they sent out an email and a letter to my home address regarding the changes in the policies and membership fees. I am certain I have not received any communication from them at all. Upon questioning the staff member about my fee guarantee, she denied it and stated my particular rate was effective for my age group only at the time of registration. Furthermore, the oval staff forwarded me a cancellation form immediately and asked me to sign it. The woman even mentioned there would be a can-

cellation fee if I decide to cancel. It certainly does not seem like the facility wants to retain its customers. By honouring the fee guarantee and keeping the same rate for another few months, I would be happy to continue my membership, even beyond the two years. At present, it is not so much a money issue as it is the way the facility is handling the issue. I am now considering cancelling my membership as I am deeply concerned about surprises they may throw at me in the future. As Mahatma Gandhi once said, “A customer is the most important visitor on our premises, he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favour by serving him. He is doing us a favour by giving us an opportunity to do so.” I wonder if the staff and management at the Richmond Olympic Oval would benefit from being made aware of this quote? Wendy Ho Richmond

‘Thrive’ spurs reader to action The Editor, For anyone who wants an understanding of just how much we are being watched and controlled, I highly recommend watching THRIVE. ( Warning: Only brave hearts who are able to shift from fear to love will feel comfortable to watch this movie in its entirety and then sign up to be a part of the solutions! I agree with Martin Luther King Jr. when he said, “Our lives begin to end the day we remain silent about things that

really matter.” That is why I decided to send this email and made the decision to share this website with as many people as I can. I feel my future and the future of the human race depends on each one of us making a decision to become a part of the solutions that are needed in our world today. It may take great courage, but what is the alternative? To live the rest of our lives in fear of the powers that be who are not working for the good of all? I feel that “united we stand, divided we fall”

The Editor, Just as I am not a big supporter of big fat bonuses for officers hired to do little more than a satisfactory job to begin with, I am not keen to say “Bravo” to politicians either for representing the views of the majority of their constituents candidly on ethical, moral and public safety issues. However, on June 28, when I heard Mayor Malcolm Brodie speaking on Global TV, against licensing and subsidising a liquor bar in the new RCMP Headquarters, I felt compelled to salute him for his stand. It is both good and right, and complements the new professional behavioural standards the Minister of Public Safety, Vic Toews, and the new RCMP Commissioner, Bob Paulson, are trying to enforce. The mayor’s comments also inadvertently support MADD. Suresh Kurl Richmond

Isle Pirates grateful for Festival invite The Editor, On behalf of the Shady Isle Pirates, thank you to the City of Richmond for inviting us to be a part of the 2012 Ship-to-Shore event. It was really great to see our mini-brigs, the Adventure and Liberte part of an on-thewater event in our own community. It was a lot of work for our crews to have the boats both in the 67th annual Salmon Festival Parade, and at Ship-to-Shore 2012, but we enjoyed every minute. Also a huge “HUZZAH!” and thank-you to all the volunteers. They were really great in helping get us situated and making us feel welcome on the docks. We all look forward to being a part of future community events. To all the volunteers, keep up the good work! Brian Nix and Captain Connor O’Dae Steveston

Learn to savour summer’s sweetness

Transitions are hard. Even good ones, like going from the bustle of school to the quiet and calm of summer vacation. Not that summers are necessarily quiet or calm. As a teacher I am lucky to have my summers off. Tonight, however, it feels like the skeleton has been ripped out of my life and I am left with a big blob of unstructured weariness. It is hard to slow down. There are dishes to be done, a pile of laundry waving at me from the corner and more chores calling my name. I want to just go to bed because tomorrow my two-year-old will be awake early, and he is the alarm clock you can’t turn off. Sigh. With three kids, even “vacation” is a lot of work.

Looking back, I am glad I gave him those few minutes. As parents, we have a steady stream of decisions to make. It helps when we have a clear vision of what sort of tone we want to set. I bet you cannot remember many details of what you did when you were six or eight or two. But you probably remember clearly what it felt like in your childhood home. Calm? Rushed? Stressful? Relaxed?

It covers a lot of behaviours ting smacked in the face by a door that including etiquette, décorum, and proper someone didn’t hold open, I started to conversational skills. At its very simplest, wonder if I was just expecting too much. it means being inconsiderate towards othMaybe I have old-fashioned Victorian ers. FAMILY FUNCT ION morals or maybe I’m just too Canadian, The problem is, we don’t all agree what is inconsiderate because we subbut I do expect people to show some scribe to different sets of manners that are based on our common courtesy such as letting others off the elevator heritage, family values and personalities. before entering. For example, I couldn’t care less if people put their elbows on the dinner table, curse, or don’t shake my ADVERTORIAL hand, but I can’t stand it if someone holds a glass by the rim to serve me a drink, tells stories while shoving more food into their mouth, or invades my personal space. What do you consider rude? If an anxious person doesn’t look you in the eye when you meet; if a straight shooter tells you the brutal truth; if a teenager who doesn’t have a more sophisticated way to communicate rolls his eyes; if a busy corporate person doesn’t respond to your FYI email that didn’t require a response — are they being rude? I don’t think so. Then again, I’ve been accused of being rude. To figure out what is truly rude we may need to ask ourselves whether the seemingly rude behaviour is based on ignorance, obliviousness, different values, or contempt. If someone with out-of-province plates is driving in a confused way searching for road signs and realizes at the last minute that they must budge to get on the offramp, is that the same as someone who cuts in line just see Observe page 16

Port Metro Vancouver:

bringing goods to you in a good way.

Looking for a new barbeque this summer? Let’s follow along as it travels to your local store through Port Metro Vancouver. STEP 1 ARRIVE & UNLOAD

Your new barbeque arrives at the Port in a container from Asia. Giant gantry cranes transfer the container from the ship to the terminal. STEP 2 SORT & PICK-UP

The container is moved to a storage yard at the terminal. A trucking company then transports the container to a transload facility where its contents, including the barbeque, are sorted.


Another truck picks up the barbeque and delivers it to your local store. It is unloaded and placed on the shelf just in time for the summer. In addition to your new barbeque and other consumer goods, the Port handles a wide variety of import and export cargo such as automobiles, coal, grain, potash and forest products. Port Metro Vancouver is Canada’s largest and North America’s most diversified port, trading $75 billion in goods with more than 160 trading economies annually.

A proud partner of Canada’s Pacific Gateway: A fast, reliable and integrated network of seaports, airports, railways and roadways connecting Canada and the North American market to Asia and the world.

ent and we all find different behaviours offensive. We have to take the time to learn about each other if we really want to avoid being rude or being the recipient of rudeness. You can treat people the way you would like to be treated, but it might not always ensure that they will think you are considerate. Observe the cues a person is giving and ask questions if you’re not sure how they like to be treated. If someone expresses that they are uncomfortable, annoyed, or unhappy by something that you’re doing, simply don’t do it — whether you personally think it’s rude or not doesn’t matter. If a person repeatedly ignores polite requests and only responds after others become less polite with them, who is the one being inconsiderate and rude? In conclusion, be a good listener, be tolerant, be helpful, and be honest. Caring about others is all that matters.

Continued from page 14 because they think they shouldn’t have to wait like everybody else? Rudeness isn’t all bad. It can be a mechanism for shaping appropriate behaviour. For example, if a teenager tells a friend to “shut up” or “move”, it’s not necessarily the speaker who is rude. It’s often the recipient who has transgressed perhaps by interrupting or over-stepping a boundary and is being corrected because they missed the cues — the shake of the head, sarcastic tone and silent treatment — that signalled what is and isn’t acceptable So, what is and isn’t acceptable? I could say things like cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, take your shoes off in someone’s home, knock before you enter a closed door, say please and thank you, and don’t touch people or their things without asking, but not everyone would agree. Although we could probably all agree that throwing dirty baby diapers in someone’s bushes and knocking over little old ladies is rude, the rest is debatable.

You’re value will surprise you I’ve got some good news… and some bad news. First, the bad news: Your financial capital has probably taken a hit these past few years. As a matter of fact, this past decade or so has not been too rosy either. WEALTH Here’s the good news: Your human capital has all of a sudden become relatively more valuable to you and your family. In other words, the value of you at work has gone up. Of all your investments, human capital is the one you have the most control over. Here are a number of ideas to invest in YOU: 1. In uncertain times, there’s nothing quite as valuable as a regular paycheque. Solidify your career, whether an employee or selfemployed, by being absolutely indispensable and consistently exceeding expectations. 2. Stick around. There will always be better opportunities, but you do not want to build a flaky reputation by jumping from one opportunity to another. 3. Do whatever it takes to improve your income potential by improving job skills, taking courses and getting certifications that improve your value. The marketplace generally rewards this. 4. Be a lifelong learner. Attend conferences and industry events. Make productive use of the Internet to grow your knowledge through reading online journals and blogs or engaging in relevant online discussion forums. 5. Join professional, trade and networking associations in order to build your contacts and grow your industry knowledge. Don’t just collect business cards though. Try to

help as many people along the way as you can. It’s the right thing to do and it will often be rewarded through future opportunities. 6. Find a mentor. Get to know someone who takes an interest in your future and be SMARTS committed to learning everything you can from this person. Remember though that mentors give selflessly, but often with an unwritten condition that you continue to pay that generosity forward by being a mentor to others. 7. Give before you expect to get. Take on additional responsibilities without any conditions. Only once you have clearly proven your value have you earned the right to ask for a raise. 8. Take credit without being seen as a “try-hard.” If you add extra value into the workplace, your employers need to know about that. 9. Volunteer. If you’re trying to break into a field where you have not been employed before, especially in the non-profit sector, volunteering your time is a great way to make contacts and build more skills 10. Do it yourself. Your value is also in what you are able to do on your own without paying someone else and that’s tax-free. If you work on building up your human capital and making sure you are compensated for your increased value, you will then be in a better position to improve your financial investments.

Entrepreneurs cook up healthy frozen food company Experienced husband and wife team offer four to six new menu items every week


oanne Lechner recently won Tourism Richmond’s Steveston Visitor Centre’s most outstanding pie competition for her balsamic black pepper strawberry rhubarb pie. The win was a sweet one given she and her husband Morgan Lechner, both chefs, just launched a new venture together called batch. food. — a company offering gourmet frozen meals to families and professionals too busy to prepare healthy meals themselves. “We are really busy parents ourselves and we don’t like store-bought fast food or processed food for our kids so we started making our own healthy frozen food,” said Joanne Lechner, who has an eight and five year old. The concept behind is simple. People go to the website and check out the menu selections, order online and the food is delivered on Mondays, or available for pick ups from their site near Richmond’s Ikea on Fridays. “I had an idea years ago that came from a similar program at a Delta hotel about packaging wholesome food,” said Morgan Lechner. “Joanne and I thought why don’t we freeze fresh, healthy food for people who don’t have time to cook themselves but like to eat nourishing meals.” The couple initially began trying out recipes in their home kitchen, and selling their products to friends and family. They received such a great response that they moved into their new location on June 15. “So far, we have been selling online and through word-of-mouth,” said Joanne Lechner, adding she has one part-time cook helping her right now. “People typically order one to two weeks in advance.” They offer four to six new menu items every week, entrees such as brown turkey boullabaise, braised pork ribs, gluten free panko crusted chicken fingers, baked or barbecued ling cod and Thai green chicken curry. “All of our seafood is Ocean Wise,” added Morgan Lechner. Both come with years of experience in the hospitality industry. The two met while both working as chefs in Banff.

prestigious hotels, including the Rimrock Resort Hotel, Banff Springs Hotel, and the Empress Hotel. Joanne Lechner studied culinary arts at Malaspina College before moving to Banff to complete her Red Seal Chef Certification. She has worked as a chef in top resorts and hotels across the country, and as the pastry chef at the River Rock Casino Resort for five years before retiring as a product designer at a major cake manufacturer. “I like all aspects of cooking but I love the visual of desserts,” added Joanne Lechner. Frozen, prepared meals are not a new idea. There are many companies across the Lower Mainland who cater to those who want “warm and serve” dishes prepared for them, so they can enjoy a epicurean meal in the comfort of their own home. touts itself as offering restaurant-style gourmet meals, using fresh, local and sustainable seafood and meats, as well as produce and fruits at a fraction of the price you’d pay in a restaurant. For example, a one kilogram portion of Thai red prawn curry dish, complete with roti and baby potatoes (serves four), will cost you $18, or four Wasabi black bean boneless, skinless chicken breasts costs $17. As far as taste, one of the pie competition judges, MLA Rob Howard, said the pie was “absolutely delicious.” “I’ve never eaten so much pie in such a short amount of time,” he quipped about the contest. “I must confess, I’m not an expert but the burst of flavour, the amount of fresh fruit and the proportion of fruit to crust in Joanne’s pie were very good,” said Howard. When asked what Howard thought of the concept behind, he said, “What a great service in this day and age when people are both really busy and conscious of what they are eating … it’s a great idea. “Often too, if we buy, we need to buy in bulk and this idea sounds really good for those of us who don’t want to or need to buy huge portions.” For more information about, visit

Steveston Folk Guild presents Jack and May The duo of Jack and May, described in one review as “folk-ishly funny”, brings a unique brand of humour to the stage with original songs and some well-chosen cover tunes, and the playful banter between the real-life couple adds to the fun. Jack and

May’s music also touches on the serious side of life and they even throw in a good ol’ original travellin’ ditty just to round things out. In their home town of Victoria, B.C., they have run an Open Mic for over two years, offering stage time to more than 200 different musicians. Tickets are $8 at the door and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Location: Britannia Heritage Shipyard, 5180 Westwater Dr.

Chuckers ride outstanding pitching to tourney title BY LIISA ATVA

Special to the News

While the sun made only a brief appearance over the Canada Day weekend, the Richmond Chuckers shone at the Cloverdale Cup. Finding enough breaks in the weather to play three games was a challenge, but despite last minute schedule changes, delays and the final game played in steady rain, the Midget AAA baseball team persevered to win the tournament. Game MVP pitching performances from Brandon Kirk, Blake Hogg and Nawid Niyaz, strong defense with several double plays, sound play behind the plate by Tyler Milford and Mike Yamaguchi, and solid hitting contributed to the team’s success. In the first game against the Coquitlam Senior Little League, Kirk gave up just two hits over six shutout innings and had 11strikeouts in a 5-2 win. Matt Cameron began what would be a productive game by driving in Brendan Mullin in the first inning. He later stole home to make it 2-0. Richmond added two more in the third, thanks to a Cameron triple, which cashed in Wesley Parrill, and a sacrifice

bunt by Jonah Rose, scoring Cameron. Michael Kinach added his team’s final run in the fifth. Coquitlam finally got on the board with a pair of runs in the seventh. A 3-1 win over the Cloverdale Spurs saw Hogg go the distance on 85 pitches. Richmond jumped out to a 2-0 lead after one as Rose drove in Mullin then scored himself on a hit by Milford. Cloverdale cut the lead in half with a run in the top of the second and Yamaguchi responded in the bottom half of the inning. Hogg then shut down the Spurs over the final five innings. Once again, Richmond got off a terrific start in the championship game, scoring three times in the first inning. Rose drove in Parrill, and Milford came through with clutch two-run hit, scoring Cameron and Rose. That was more than enough for Niyaz who recorded the shutout in a 5-0 triumph. The Chuckers added some insurance in the fifth as Parrill drove in Kinach and Rose’s second RBI of the game brought in Parrill. The locals look to continue the momentum over the final month of the season, leading to a berth

Kam selected to play for B.C. Under 23 squad in rugby friendly against British school

Richmond’s Alex Kam has been named to the B.C. U23 men’s rugby team that will will be playing an English touring side tonight in West Vancouver. The provincial squad will be going up against Durham University with the match

slated to get underway at 6:30 p.m. at Klahanie Park. Kam, a former standout with the McRoberts secondary rugby program, has continued his career with the UBC Thunderbirds where he served as team

captain last season. He will be starting in B.C.’s front row. Durham is expected to give B.C. a sterner test than last week’s 57-25 victory over St. Andrew’s University. The hosts will have eight new faces in their starting line-

up due to injuries and availability. “We wanted to try out some different combinations as Durham will be a different prospect to St. Andrew’s,” said head coach Dave Brown. “We will need to be much better in all aspects of our performance.”

Surrey United dominates Premier Cup finals

The inaugural BC Soccer Youth Provincial Premier Cup Finals, played over the Canada Day weekend at Minoru Park, were dominated by Surrey United SC who won six of the 10 games without conceding a goal in any of their final games. Fusion FC, which is operated through the Richmond and Vancouver Youth Soccer Associations, captured the U13 girls title and came up short in the U18 girls final.

“We will have some very worthy teams representing B.C. in the National Club Championships in October and we wish them all the best of success,” said Don Dancey, B.C. Soccer Competitions Committee Chair and B.C. Soccer Director. “We also greatly appreciate all of the hard work that Fusion FC and their many volunteers put into hosting these finals.



Fusion FC fell 5-0 to Surrey United in the U18 girls final at the inaugural B.C. Soccer Premier Cup Championships on Sunday at Minoru Park.

Richmond Girls Softball Association teams were first and third in the “B” Division at last weekend’s annual Supermite Championships in Burnaby. The 2002 Islander Blue team took first place, while the 2002 Islander Gold team was third. Both squads braved the miserable wet conditions and played seven games each over the four day. The girls cheered on each other and all worked hard and had lots of fun over the weekend. The tournament featured 20 teams from across the province.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent remains on home, kids, real estate, security, nutrition, nature, retirement and recuperation. This area isn’t easy this decade but this summer’s crises are past, so you can relax. Rest, lie low and plan Sunday. Your energy and charisma get a boost Monday to Wednesday – be proactive, control events, tackle problems. Chase money, buy/sell, Wednesday night to Friday. Saturday is for travel, errands, details and paperwork – the day is enjoyable, even romantic – but a deeper, quieter influence warns against taking risks, especially with home, kids, real estate, etc. Taurus April 20-May 20: Though no significant event occurs Sunday, you’ll be happy, social and upbeat. Give the day to pleasure and friends. Lie low, rest and make plans, Monday to Wednesday. You might have to address a problem involving an unhappy spouse, manager, agent or civil servant and an ethical/moral or legal matter Monday night, but otherwise this is a smooth, restful time. Seek “sweet solitude.” Your energy and pizzazz shoot upward Wednesday eve to Friday. Start short-term projects, but otherwise complete things, as Saturday brings a slow-down. All week, avoid work place gambles. Don’t gossip! Gemini May 21-June 20: Chase money all week. This might interfere with romance, a creative urge or your kid’s interests, but you can safely let these go for awhile. July 14 begins a period of delays, indecision, and false starts, but this whole week dives toward that slough, so start nothing new now to Aug. 7. Instead, finish up old tasks, or reprise past opportunities and ventures. A former friend or lover is “returning.” Popularity, happiness and wish fulfillment visit you Monday to Wednesday – but don’t seek sex, nor invest, Monday. Retreat, rest Wednesday eve to Friday. You impress, Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy, charisma and clout reach a yearly high. You’re impressing people; you’re in demand! But July 14 begins three weeks of delays, mistakes and indecision (for the whole world). For now, concentrate on finishing rather than beginning projects. By next week (onward) you will be able to rejuvenate an old money project, job or venture, or purchase an item you have long wanted (but perhaps gave up on). Now to Aug. 23, avoid temper on the home front, and DO NOT change homes. Aug. 8-22 can be good for buying/ leasing business premises. Happiness, Wednesday to Friday! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Finishing tasks and projects rather than start anything new. A slow-down looms, late this week to Aug. 7. Your energy is low, so rest, avoid competitive situations. Your popularity and optimism remain nicely buoyant.Use the weeks ahead, not to begin things, but to re-examine your overall direction in life. By late August, September, it might be time for some new goals and dreams: the future is much brighter than you thought, even a few months ago. Sunday’s sexy, but unproductive. A mellow, understanding mood comes Monday-Wednesday. Avoid governments, head office, all week. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your career remains lucky and buoyant; higher-ups are pleased with you, have been since April. It’s very likely you’ll be promoted in the 11 months ahead – push for this September onward, not now. A slow-down begins now, lasting to Aug. 7 – so start nothing new through that date. Instead, complete projects, tie up loose ends, so you’ll be free to charge into late-summer’s ambitious opportunities. Changes, research, secrets and secret desires come Monday to Wednesday. Mellow love, learning and travel, Thursday/Friday. Your ambitions awaken Saturday. DON’T invest now.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: You feel newly assertive, but avoid pushing others too far, or acting abruptly, now to late August. An eight-month pall that settled over your relationships and frustrated you if you tried to form a significant new one, has ended. You’re free now to mate – and to pick and choose with whom. You’ll be free to wed September onward – and I don’t mention this casually. (If unhappily married, you’ll be free to divorce.) Don’t start new projects in any area before Aug. 8. Instead, work to complete, or to protect ongoing ventures from delays, shortages. A former “flirt” returns soon! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your gentle, wise, mellow mood continues. The main accent lies on far travel, intellect, higher learning, import-export, culture, law – and love. Complete projects this week, and start nothing new July 14 to Aug. 7. In weeks ahead, you might be recalled to a former career role or duty. Good, embrace it. Protect ongoing career, business and authority-related ventures from unexpected supply shortages, delays and mistakes – double check plans, lists. Sunday’s romantic; beauty flows. Tackle chores Monday-Wednesday. Thursday/Friday bring exciting meetings. Promise nothing Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Complete ongoing tasks or ventures. The weeks ahead bring slowdowns,indecision and mistakes in all areas,especially in legal, learning, publishing, cultural, international, and travel zones. Start nothing before Aug. 8. Your hopes about love will soar now to late August – and for good reason. But don’t form a new relationship before Aug. 8. Before that, an old flame might return. This could be good, as long as the problem that split you doesn’t still exist. Romance “speaks” MondayWednesday. Tackle chores Thursday/Friday. Links excite, but subtly restrict, Saturday.

July 8 - 14, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The main accent lies on relationships, opportunities, challenges and competition. Diplomacy will be your ally (especially as the present interval promotes dissension or power struggles). Use this week to complete chores and tie up loose ends. Start nothing significant before Aug. 8, as delays, mistakes and indecision dog new and ongoing projects. Have a “Plan B” ready when shortages or missed appointments occur. Home, kids, security and “nap time” come Monday to Wednesday. Cupid’s arrow could hit you Wednesday night to Friday (but start no new relationships). Work, Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Tackle chores all week. Catch up on neglected health concerns, make the appointment. Finish rather than begin – new projects and relationships started before Aug. 8 will likely falter under a load of delays, indecision and mistakes. Despite this you’ll be rather happy, as a romantic, creative, beauty-filled mood continues all month. A former spouse, business partner or lover might return soon. Now to late August, avoid legal hassles. Buy nothing big Sunday. Travel, talk, run errands and do paperwork early week. Seek home, rest, Thursday/ Friday. Saturday’s sweet. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Start nothing new before Aug. 8, especially in health, work, relationship and contract areas. DON’T buy machinery before that date. Use the present week to tie up loose ends.You’re in a nice romantic period (July) but guard against sexual impulsiveness through late August. Be careful about investing during this same period – rash action can lead to loss. Your energy and charisma are nicely high Sunday. Chase money Monday to Wednesday; don’t commit to any long-term payments. Errands, casual friends and interesting tidbits fill Thursday/ Friday. Step back Saturday. • Reading: 604-727-3673
