BY MICHELLE HOPKINS
For years, the start of the Steveston Salmon Festival wasn’t complete until elite and novice athletes ran past spectators before the annual parade began. However, in the early 1980s, the race came to a halt. Now, after nearly three decades, the Kajak Track and Field Club’s elite and beginner runners will hit the pavement to take part in the 66th Annual Steveston Salmon Festival. The club is hosting a short race just prior to the Steveston Salmon Festival parade. “This is the first for this type of race for our club and it will be a mile-long race along the parade
Popular road race will grace July 1 celebration after 30-year break route,” said Fred Pawluk, president of the Kajaks Track and Field Club. “The first place woman and man will each receive a $250 prize. There will also be draws and other prizes.” Back in the early sixties, when Richmond was still a township, it was the vision and direction of Dr. Doug and Diane Clement that brought the Kajaks Club into existence. In 1962, the former Olympians founded the Kajaks Track and Field Club at Minoru Park. It began when the power couple was approached by the Richmond recreation department to start a track and field team.
“They came to us in 1961 and told us that they had plans to build at track at Minoru Park,” said Diane. “So, Doug and I went around to all the elementary and high schools and spoke to the principals asking them if they support us. They said yes. “Teachers became involved as coaches and it grew from there.” The athletic couple, who also founded the Sun Run, started with 50 to 60 members, between the ages 14 and up. “It was important for us to give back to the community as well as our commitment to seeing the sport grow,” said Doug, sports professor emeritus in the faculty of
medicine at UBC. Over the ensuing years, the club became renowned as a premier track club in Canada. With the Kajaks, Clement coached track athletes to top rankings both in Canada and the world for the next 31 years. Today, the track that catapulted many athletes’ career, is now called the Clement Oval at Minoru Park. More recently, Doug and Diane Clement were again honoured for their deep commitment to track and field with one of our country’s highest sports award — they were inducted into the Athletics Canada’s Hall of Fame 2011 in see Run page 4
Canucks hero Manny to appear at Salmon Fest Fans cheered wildly from the stands as Manny Malhotra made his improbable return in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final. Now, they’ll get the chance to shake the Canucks hero’s hand at the Steveston Salmon Festival on July 1. Malhotra will appear at the Scotiabank booth inside the Richmond Olympic Oval Zone on Canada Day, sometime in the afternoon, following the Salmon Festival Parade, which runs from 10 a.m. until noon. In addition to getting Malhotra’s
autograph, fans at the Richmond Olympic Oval Zone can enter for a chance to win Canucks singlegame tickets for the 2011-2012 season, participate in Oval Summer Sport Camp activities with the oval’s exceptional sport leaders, feature themselves on their own custom sports trading cards, and compete in friendly games for oval prizes, including free oval memberships, mini sports balls, balloons and more. “Scotiabank’s commitment to enriching the lives of their customers, staff and our wonderful
community made them a natural fit to partner with the Richmond Olympic Oval Community Legacy Program,” Aran Kay, the oval’s manager of marketing and communications, said in a press release. Also inside the Richmond Olympic Oval Zone will be LifeMark Sport Medicine at the Richmond Oval — a personal rehabilitation care and sports medicine clinic. The oval’s Community Legacy Program provides sport, health and fitness activities, skill development pathways to all ages and skill levels.

Run: Taking place before parade Continued from page 3 both the coach and builders categories respectively. On Athletics Canada’s website, it said in part the couple won because: “They contributed to the sport as Olympians, administrators and builders. “Together, over the decades, they’ve paved a lasting athletics legacy and will enter the hall as one. Diane was the first female coach with the University of British Columbia’s women’s track team; she’s past president with Athletics Canada and served on numerous boards. Doug founded the largest sports medicine clinic in Canada, penned numerous articles and, today, still serves as director of the Harry Jerome International Track Classic.” “It’s insane … it was such an honour and humbling to be recognized as someone who helped build the system,” said Doug. Diane echoed her husband’s sentiments and added: “Doug started with Athletics Canada in the forties and I in the fif-
ties and we have never left the sport. At the awards dinner, we trained many of the athletes who were also inducted and they know us as Momma C and Papa C. The evening was like a family reunion.” In the five decades since the Kajaks was founded, in total, nearly 50 Olympic team selections have involved Kajak athletes and 72 medals have been won in international competitions. This Canada Day the couple will be in Burnaby for the annual Harry Jerome International Track Classic — doing what they do best, supporting and cultivating track and field athletes.

The two faces of Canada
he actions of rioters negatively affected how Vancouver was seen by the world. We’ve called them morally bankrupt. What should we call our federal government when its actions negatively affect how Canada is judged by those who live in countries less disposed to put cash ahead of ethics? We are talking about Canada’s shameful efforts in keeping chrysolite asbestos from being listed as a hazardous chemical by the United Nations. That self-serving — or Quebec-serving — initiative came to a successful conclusion Friday when global luminaries Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Vietnam sided with Canada and declared they had problems with including chrysolite on a trade “watch list” of chemicals and pesticides that exporters must share information on. Even India, Canada’s largest importer of the ﬁre-retardant and known carcinogen, has dropped its opposition to labelling chrysolite hazardous. That left Canada in the two-faced position of telling the international summit dealing with the issue on Thursday that it agreed listing chrysolite was “appropriate,” but that Canada was “not in a position to support the listing.” And in a piece of coincidental news, Prime Minister Stephen Harper was celebrating St-Jean-Baptiste Day by visiting Thetford Mines, Que., with Industry Minister Christian Paradis, the MP for the riding. Thetford Mines is home to the country’s last operating asbestos-mining operations.

Please, not in my back yard The Editor, Re: “Neighbourhood changes frustrating” and “Council salaries outrageous,” Letters, June 24. I also live in a “hot “ neighbourhood, as real estate agents like to call it. However, this has been my home for 20 years and it is getting changed beyond recognition from the “Garden City” I moved to and loved. I wonder how long Richmond will be able to call itself such before they are sued for wrongful advertising. We are losing gardens everyday! Trees are also being knocked down in this neighbourhood for no reason that I can fathom! What happened to the tree bylaw, which was supposed to protect tees from being knocked down unnecessarily? It certainly doesn’t seem to be in action in my area! Richmond council espouses about how green they are, yet the simplest form of being green is surely to keep gardens and trees. Not pave them over into a parking lot!! Most of us feel we are being forced out of neighbourhoods we have lived in for years, either because we have monster houses being built all around us, destroying the ambience of our neighbourhood, or because we can’t afford the exorbitant taxes anymore. It’s fine for the city to say as senior citizens we can take advantage of the tax deferral, but we have worked hard all our lives to get to this point, not to die owing the government for deferred taxes! Most of us imagined retiring in our “Garden City” not being forced out! Annette Masters Richmond

Labour disputes in B.C. on horizon The years of labour peace this province has known for almost a decade may be about to end. There are early warning signs on a number of fronts that suggest the provincial government is on a collision course with some key sectors, notably education and health. The B.C. Teachers’ Federation has completed a strike vote that will result in teachers withdrawing from administrative duties starting in the fall. That will eventually ramp up to more serious job action, with an outright school strike looming for the spring. The chances for a negotiated contract, while never good, look very bleak right now. The government will not offer any salary increase, and the teachers’ union claims the employer is seeking to exact all kinds of concessions. According to the BCTF, the employer wants to eliminate seniority provisions and allow forced transfers. As well, the employer wants yearly evaluations of every teacher and the ability to fire a teacher based on a single evaluation. There is no sign the government is interested in doing anything to address the teachers’ top concern: classroom conditions, which include the size and classroom make-up. Put it all together and it’s easy to see where this is headed. Of course, a strike will be short-lived as the government will – again – impose a legislated contract after just a few days of schools being behind a picket line.
Keith Baldrey IN THE HOUSE
The government must also be bracing for a confrontation with its own workforce. The B.C. Government and Service Employees Union has made it clear it will not accept a continuing wage freeze. The union’s contract expires in the fall, and if the government sticks to its position that there is simply no money for wage increases for public sector employees, some kind of job action seems likely. In fact, an outright strike seems possible. The BCGEU has, in the past, been able to carefully negotiate contracts that have protected its membership at a time when the government was engaged in serious downsizing and privatization. However, the union’s patience waiting for a wage increase seems at an end. But the most challenging labour situation facing the government is with B.C.’s doctors. Both sides are negotiating to renew the Physician Master Agreement, and already the government has tabled almost 12 concessions it is seeking from the B.C. Medical Association. “Their proposals came as an unpleasant surprise and signaled a very different approach by the new government than we had experienced with the previ-
ous administration,” BCMA president Dr. Ian Gillespie wrote in a letter to his members, some 10,000 doctors, earlier this month. Gillespie calls the government’s proposals “draconian” and “unacceptable” and is worried about a confrontation in the months ahead. The government appears to be trying to wrest more control from the doctors, as it seeks to eliminate or downgrade committees or programs that give physicians a degree of input or control. Many of the programs and committees negotiated with the BCMA in the expiring master agreement are still working very well. How will jabbing a stick in the BCMA’s eye improve the health-care system, particularly since it may lead to a return to the bad old days, which saw doctors close their offices and clinics in protest over government measures? Premier Christy Clark may not realize how hard it can be to negotiate with the BCMA. It is not like dealing with a regular union. Instead, it is akin to cutting a deal with several thousand self-employed business people, who act in concert when it suits them but who can quickly pursue individual agendas if they think that course of action is called for. Prediction: the government will impose a teachers’ contract, reach a compromise with the BCGEU, but will lose a fight with the doctors. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global BC.

Letters The city I’ve loved is slowly fading Thank you teen hero The Editor, The times they are a changin’! A Bob Dylan tune. Never did those words mean as much to me as they do today, especially living in Richmond. My husband and I have lived in Richmond our entire lives — and in our present house for 26 years. We are going through massive change in our neighbourhood. While living in our neighbourhood where we brought up our son and enjoyed all that the area had to offer, we would enjoy the sounds of spring, but in particular the ear shattering tree frogs chirping that would echo throughout the evenings! It was both a welcoming sound that spring was just around the corner and also that nature was just outside our door. Friends who came to visit would often marvel at the loud sound of these little tree frogs. At times I would have to shut the window, the sound was so deafening, but I would give anything to hear those sounds again. Strange how times change and now instead of the almost deafening sound of hundreds of tree frogs, we are lucky if we hear one little tree frog croacking away. It’s a very lonely sound to hear, believe me.
Now I shut the windows, not to drown out the sounds of the little frogs, but to drown out the sounds of the bull dozers, tractors and the cement trucks. I would gladly welcome the sound of the little tree frog’s echoing throughout the night. But that is not to be, I guess this is progress. Tonight I heard a sound that I haven’t heard in a very long time — the musical sound of the ice cream man — does that ever bring back childhood memories of living on Caithcart Road during the 1960s. I ran to my bedroom window to see if any little children ran to the side of the road with their loonies in hand, hoping they made it in time for the ice cream man to stop. He saw me at my window and waved, and I waved back, thinking to myself an ice cream would have tasted so good about now. I hope some children had the chance to enjoy them also – but somehow I doubt it. No children play outside in our neighbourhood, not anymore. Ohh the times they are a changin’ – and Richmond we’re outta here. Leslie MacDougall Richmond
Not surprised Richmond listed in top 10 The Editor Re: “City named in top 10 list, News, June 3. Much to my delight, I read your article. My past working and living experiences reveal that it’s not surprising to learn that Richmond has been chosen by global financial magazine fDi as one of the top 10 “American Cities of the Future” in the best infrastructure category. Working as an airline regional executive, I learned that huge investments have been made in air transportation infrastructure over the past years to ensure YVR can handle large transportation demands for local and the international movement of passengers, cargos and services.
As Asia Pacific economies expand their shares of world trade, Richmond, by it’s competitive location, is Canada’s main strategic link. High-value logistics services and gateway marketing will be therefore locating here. For example, retailer giant Walmart store is going to setup here. According to the Greater Vancouver gateway council, international travel through YVR to and from the Asia Pacific economies is projected to increase by four to five per cent a year on average into the foreseeable future. With its introduction onto the world stage during the 2010 Olympic winter Games, the city has been extending it’s business niche and climate to the rest of Canada, the United States and the
countless visitors and businessmen of the world. The way ahead is through a community-city-friendly policy regarding urban development. It’s about the government and community working together. It conjures up a vision for Richmond as a world transportation gateway, able to meet global challenges and capitalize on opportunities for growth from expanding world trade and tourism. It’s now clearer than ever that Richmond is what the future holds for cities. Go Richmond go! What a brighter future city! It’s booming! James Chu Richmond Pre-K to Grade 12 Grammar

years and with the fast pace of the housing development it creates a very dangerous situation — the developers are happily using all the issued development permits, but later we are going to spend a fortune to satisfy the park needs — or give up our quality of life. Also, there are often no significant parcels of land available for the city to buy and turn into park land. What is the hidden plan here — to build high-density rings around shopping plazas and simply present the people with the fact that there is no parkland to offset the growth or to cut the parkland allowance as it was done in the city centre? Before we proceed with the approval of the proposed OCP, we need to change the procedural requirements and allocate the parkland before the development permit is issued and if there is no parkland, then — sorry, there is no permit to increase the density.

The Editor, I want to attract the attention of the citizens to the 2041 Official Community Plan Update Concept. If the future of Richmond is important for you, this is the time to get familiar with the project and to support it, or voice your opposition before it is to late. I am very concern about the plan. The 2041 OCP Update Concept proposes to create a new entity: a Neighbourhood Heart. This would be created by developing a varied range of distinct higher-density mixeduse neighbourhood centres, outside the city centre. But outside the city centre the park allowance per each new citizen is higher than the city centre. In my understanding, these areas already feel the shortages of the park space due to the multiple subdivisions and density bonuses being awarded. The real situation with the current parks allowance compliance is not known as it is only getting verified every five

The Editor, Re: “Brave teen ‘sickened’ by hero tag,” News, June 22. I was so impressed by the article about Dean Seskin that I shared it with my Grade 4/5 class at school today. In particular, we chatted about Dean Seskin’s comment that it is “normal” to help a person in need, not stand back and take photos. Dean Seskin’s actions are an inspiration to everyone, but especially young people, like the students in my Grade 4/5 class. Thank you. Janet Oakes Richmond

A major new B.C. study provides hard data that the youngest children in a classroom score considerably lower in reading and mathematical skills over the long term and are less likely to graduate from Grade 12. Children born in December are 12 to 15 per cent less likely to reach standard math and reading scores in Grades 4 and 7 than classmates born in January, and 12 per cent less likely to graduate on time, says the report, authored by Jerry Mussio, a former Education Ministry official, and Pat McCrea, a current ministry official. If all kindergarten students did as well as those born in January, 1,700 more students would graduate on time from Grade 12 in a given year, which in turn would save taxpayers $14 million in the costs of adult educational upgrading or repeated secondary schooling estimated at $8,000 per student.
The study, called Birthdate and Student Achievement, followed nearly 47,000 B.C. children who turned five in 1995 and enrolled in a B.C. kindergarten through to their 2010 graduation from high school. It suggests “a substantial number of students will fall behind their peers, simply because they are the youngest and most immature in their kindergarten class.” The birthdate effect is most evident in aboriginal boys, then aboriginal girls, non-aboriginal boys and least discernible in non-aboriginal girls. The 698 children (mostly boys) who did delay kindergarten by a year in 1995, require study as to their outcomes, the authors say. Last year in Victoria, 32 of 1,356 students started kindergarten at age six instead of five. That is just 2.1 per cent. Kootenay Lake parents delayed nearly nine per cent of their five-year-olds; it was just 0.7 per cent in Richmond. One approach to counteract the effect would be to organize the teaching of reading, writing and numeracy
outside the grade system and in keeping with the development of each child, the report’s executive summary notes. Findings: ! By Grade 4, one-quarter of children studied did not meet reading standards for the Foundation Skills Assessment. But 79 per cent of kids born in January did, gradually declining to 66 per cent of kids born in December. In Grade 7, the decline was from 75 per cent to 63 per cent. ! Just over one-quarter of students did not meet Grade 4 numeracy standards, declining from 78 per cent in January kids to 63 per cent for December kids. In Grade 7, the distribution ranged from 80 per cent to 68 per cent. ! 99 per cent of those born in January progressed to Grade 7 on time versus 89 per cent for those born in December. ! 82 per cent of children born in January graduated Grade 12 on time versus 70 per cent of those born in December, although some of the latter make it up in the next year or two.

Art heist raises funds for Gateway Theatre Passersby might be forgiven if they thought they were witnessing an art heist Thursday night as people, many clad in black, scuttled out of Gateway Theatre clutching original paintings and sculptures. But, no, this wasn’t a scene out of Batman where the Joker goes wild. It was the theatre’s annual fundraiser — a cocktail pARTy, where part of the loot bag was an original work of art. More than 60 visual artists, the majority of whom are from Richmond, donated original works of adjudicated art appraised at, on average, $600 — one was appraised at $1,500. This is about artists supporting artists, said Gateway Theatre’s artistic director Simon Johnston. “Each one (of the paintings) is a unique story, and we (Gateway Theatre) are about telling stories,” Johnston added. For a $350 ticket, patrons put their name in a box. Five names were drawn at a time, allowing those individuals to go pick out the art of their choosing. Mayor Malcolm Brodie marveled at the unique concept, saying he’s been to a lot of fundraising events in his time, but none quite like this. Sue Halsey-Brandt’s name was the first to be chosen. The city councillor made a beeline for an elegant white sculpture by
CHUNG CHOW/RICHMOND NEWS
Squamish artist Patrick Sullivan. “Isn’t it fantastic?” enthused Halsey-Brandt. “It’s strange, too, because I came here last night to look around so I would know ahead of time what I wanted, but I didn’t see this one. I only saw it when I came in tonight, but it jumped right out at me.” Ted Townsend, spokesman for the City of Richmond, was the second name to be drawn, provoking jokes about the fix being in for the city. Townsend headed straight upstairs to the second level of the theatre to put his red tag on what he thought was a Mediterraneanthemed photograph that would fit in well with his décor at home. The walls of all three levels were covered with the 100 unique pieces of art. Gateway Theatre’s annual gala is an important part of the company’s fundraising, explained Johnston. “The box office only covers 60 to 70 per cent of the costs of the productions,” said Johnston, who will leave Gateway at the end of this season. Corporate sponsorship has also been instrumental to the theatre’s financial success, said Lori Chalmers, publisher of the Richmond News. She thanked Dorset Realty, Ruth Collison and the local papers. Wine and food was also supplied by local businesses.

TCM is very helpful. From a Chinese Medicine perspective, menopause is due to a natural, physiological decline of Kidney-Essence and is not a gynaecological disease. Other related symptoms such as headaches, anxiety, depression, irritability, poor memory, insomnia, dry skin and hair come from associated patterns of Liver Yang Rising, Heart Yin Deﬁciency and Kidney Yin/Yang Deﬁciency. Both Chinese herbs and Acupuncture would be used to bring balance to the body and reduce the symptoms signiﬁcantly until the body has reached its own comfortable balance.
I've heard and seen a lot about identity theft and insurance lately, what does this type of coverage cover and what are the costs?
Insurance Broker MARDON & CAMPBELL INSURANCE BROKERS 145 - 3900 Steveston Hwy. Richmond
Tel: 604-274-9971 Fax: 604-274-6501
This type of insurance is relatively new and a valuable coverage to have with this type of crime happening to thousands of Canadians a year; if the theft is relatively small it can easily go unnoticed. As anyone who does notice and had their identity stolen or documents forged will attest the costs, time and stress involved in getting the criminal transactions reversed is significant. Identity theft insurance pays for the costs of notarizing documents, time off work, telephone charges and other expenses related to the fraud. The cost for this coverage is often included in home insurance policies and if not the cost is around the range of $40 a year. For businesses the cost is approximately $75 yearly. Of course we would be happy to answer any questions there are about this or any insurance matter.

I have been wearing dentures for many years and they are to the point that my gums are extremely sore and red; what can I do?
Soft tissue management is the answer you are seeking. Rehabilitation of soft tissues is primary. First, your dentures require cleaning to remove offensive organisms that may be contributing to the inflammation and edema (swelling). Tissue conditioners (temporary soft lining material) are placed on the tissue fitting surface of your dentures to provide a clean positive adaptation to your gum tissues. Healing begins and your tissues are reassessed in a week to confirm the progress of healing. Generally a second and or third tissue conditioner may need to be applied before proceeding to the construction of new dentures. New dentures promote a healthy clean fitting surface for many years. If you have any questions regarding this procedure or any other denture related subject, please book your free consultation with us.

What is the difference between an appraisal and an inspection?
While both are done by independent professionals, they serve different purposes. An appraisal will determine the current value of your home. A certified real estate appraiser will look at the sale prices of comparable homes in your area to determine what the market value is. A qualified housing inspector will ensure that the home is sound. Inspectors will review aspects of the home such as roof, foundation, electrical and plumbing to determine that the home has been well maintained and in good order.

But, it does not include property held jointly with right of survivorship (e.g. bank accounts, real estate held in joint tenancy, etc). Also, assets such as RRSP"s, and insurance polices that have a designated beneficiary named do not form part of the state. 2. Your Will may need reviewing/updating if any of the following changes in your life have occurred: marriage, separation, divorce, birth of children, death of anyone name in the Will, or a change of assets, and in any event, it should be looked at about every two years.

How to maximize mutual funds News columnist wins Many investors have mutual funds in their portfolios because they want a simplified approach to investing. However, simple does not mean hands-off. Mutual funds are not all built alike so thinking must be applied in selection, and monitoring is essential. As with any approach to investing, a critical consideration is the impact of fees. A combination of high fees and an underperforming fund means the investor loses. Roughly 80 per cent of mutual funds either underperform their broad indices or merely track them. Therefore it is important to choose funds that provide actual, measurable value. The first fee to examine is the Management Expense Ratio (MER). All mutual funds have an MER built into the unit price, and they are charged regardless of fund performance. The longrange difference to a portfolio’s bottom line, of even a one per cent MER increase compounded, is significant. Mutual fund selection also affects the impact of other fees. Generally there
Kim Inglis FINANCES
are four ways of purchasing a mutual fund: back-end, front-end, low-load, or noload. Back-end is also referred to as deferred sales charge (DSC), where no additional fees are charged if the fund is held for a pre-determined length of time; typically six or seven years. If the fund is sold before the redemption date investors may be assessed up to six per cent, depending where they are in the schedule, regardless of performance. Low-load sales fees are similar to DSCs, except the maturity date is shortened and redemption fees are fewer. Front-end purchases entail an initial commission but investors can sell the fund at anytime without penalty. With no-load funds, investors are not locked in and the only fees are ongo-
ing MERs. No-load are generally for do-it-yourself investors and are often only available directly through the mutual fund companies. The choice in fund fee set-up depends entirely on the investor’s objectives. Those wishing to buy-andhold a particular fund may opt for DSC or low-load. Those looking for purchasing and selling flexibility may consider front-end or no-load. The latter are generally more popular in the current investing landscape as it calls for increased flexibility in portfolios. Diversification of mutual fund holdings requires monitoring. Investors often wind up with far too many mutual funds when only five or six are needed to achieve adequate diversification. When that number is surpassed, holdings start to overlap and the portfolio becomes too correlated. Consider that the average mutual fund has more than 100 holdings. If an investor has several types of Canadian-focused funds, chances are good that all the funds have some of our
big six banks and largest Canadian energy companies in their top holdings. The duplication makes it difficult to outperform the markets. The mutual fund’s mandate is another important consideration. Some funds are required to be fully invested at all times. However, if the markets turn negative, portfolio managers faced with such restrictions have no flexibility to raise cash and preserve investors’ capital. Mutual funds are generally best suited to portfolios under $100,000, as they provide a level of diversification that would otherwise be difficult to achieve with individual securities. Once over that threshold, investors should begin expanding their horizons and examine other investment vehicles such as stocks, bonds, exchangetraded funds, and alternative investments. Kim Inglis is an investment advisor, CIM, PFP with Canaccord Wealth Management, a division of Canaccord Genuity Corp., Member – Canadian Investor Protection Fund.
Richmond News contributing columnist and investment advisor, Kim Inglis has won a prestigious award for the value and knowledge she brings to the profession and the community, among other things. Inglis, who is also a founding partner of the Reynolds Inglis Group at Canaccord Wealth Management, has been named a Five Star Wealth Manager for 2011. Showcased in Business In Vancouver and Vancouver Magazine, the annual selection is based on a survey of one in four high-net-worth households and 1,000 financial services professionals within the Vancouver area. The prestigious designation recognizes less than seven per cent of all wealth managers in Vancouver after evaluating them on nine criteria: customer service, integrity, knowledge/expertise, communication, value for fee charged, meeting financial objectives, post-sale service, quality of recommendations, and overall satisfaction. “I feel honoured that it was clients and peers who chose me for this award,” said Inglis. “I’ve always been committed to making a positive difference in my clients’ lives and this kind of feedback tells me I’m on the right track.” Inglis specializes in conservative wealth management and financial planning for high net worth families, entrepreneurs, corporations, and charities. She holds her Canadian Investment Manager (CIM) and Personal Financial Planner (PFP) accreditation, in addition to her bachelor of commerce, strengthening her strategic portfolio expertise.

Richmond teen taking dead aim in archery BY MARK BOOTH
Sean Biles is taking dead aim at a promising career in archery. It was just eight-months ago the 15-year-old MacNeill secondary school took up the sport and is now recognized as one of the top prospects in the province. In just his second ever competition, Biles not only won his division but earned B.C. Archery Association’s Junior Olympic Program status. It’s the first time that’s happened in recent memory for Richmond archer. “He took a lesson one year at a summer camp and had been bugging me since to find an archery school,” explained Rick Biles, Sean’s father. “I had kept putting it off until I saw an ad for the Richmond Rod and Gun Club.” Sean was given an introductory lesson with Mike Davison, the club’s Archery chair. He was then on his own for twice-a-week shooting sessions at the club’s indoor range at Sportstown. Some additional mentorship from longtime national team member Hugh MacDonald paid off with his victory in the recurve (traditional) bow category that produced the eye-opening score of 254 from the standard indoor distance of 18 metres.
It was enough to also impress his father, who just so happens to be a provincial junior champion himself back in 1967. “It’s just much more difficult with a recurve and to shoot a 254 is incredible,” said Rick. Sean has since traded in his recurve bow for another with more power and accuracy. The change means there will be some adjustment time before his next event. His Junior Olympian status means more competitive opportunities. “You just can’t grab a bow, put an arrow into it and shoot,” explained Sean. “Posture, technique and tuning (the bow) are incredibly difficult. You need the advice of someone who knows what they are doing. “The competition is great but really I just do it for the enjoyment. We’ll see what happens.” His father is pleased to see his son has everything in perspective. The sport can be very expensive with limited availability of world class equipment. There is just one archery supply store in Metro Vancouver and Sean’s first bow was actually ordered from England. “It’s really a money pit and a sport that you can’t make any money in,” laughed Rick. “But if it makes him feel good about himself, then that’s great.”

Sean Biles has wasted little time earning Junior Olympian status in archery.
Former Palmer hoop star transfers to Kamloops school before red shirting last year due to a minor injury. His arrival in Kamloops comes on the heels of the Wolfpack earlier signing swingman Mike Zayas — a key starter for this year’s B.C. “AAA” champion Palmer team. Pierre was not planning on continuing his career at UBC and contacted TRU head coach Scott Clark about the potential move. “He comes from a winning
background,” said Clark. “ In high school, his team finished top four in the province. He is a 5-foot-11 guard but plays above the rim a lot. “He also has the ability to be a very good defender on the basketball. He has a disposition on wanting to defend. We need guys like that—who will do the dirty work. Because he is one of the better players and he wants to do that: others will follow suit. Those types
of things will add to your basketball program.” Pierre was a member of the B.C. U15 team in 2005 and also a two-time member of the B.C. U17 team. His coach for those summers was current WolfPack assistant Del Komarniski. “He is a tenacious worker,” he said of the ‘Pack’s latest player. “ Akeem is very driven. He is a great character guy who is a ‘big acquisi-

He is highly regarded by his peers.” Pierre will also be reunited with former Team B.C. teammate and Victoria native Kevin Pribilsky. “I feel I will have the most opportunities to develop as a player and show what I can do here under coaches Clark and Komarniski,” Pierre says. “It’s a really nice campus and all my credits transfer, which was a huge factor,” he said.

Whether its a pedi, mani or a simple massage, there are lots of places to choose from in Steveston, including Papillon Paradise Spa. (above, left), B & D Spa (above, right) and Lacquer Beauty Bar (left).
What would the Steveston pioneers think of their historic village today? Once a quiet farming community, by 1882, Steveston was experiencing an exploding fishing industry. That dramatically changed the landscape. By 1890, the streets of Steveston were lined with saloons, bars, bawdy houses and opium dens. A century later, the canneries have all shut down and Steveston reinvents itself yet again. Today, Steveston is about health, wellness and complete pampering. The village is home to several spas, esthetics, hair salons, wellness and healing centres as well as some great spots to indulge a love of fine jewelry and shoes. For those of us whose idea of relaxation involves facials, manicures, pedicures, massage and scrubs, Steveston is a haven. The granddaddy, or in this case, one of the grandmother of spas is Papillon Paradise Spa. It’s been in Steveston for 13 years. Papillon Paradise Spa’s manager and head esthetician, Tracy Steeves, has called Richmond home for 15 years and eight of those have been spent working at Papillon. She attributes the success of the spa to the inclusiveness of merchants and locals in Steveston. “The people in the community are what makes running a business in Steveston so special,” said Steeves. “They love to support
the local businesses as much as possible, and although there’s been a lot of change over the years... you still feel a part of a small town community.” Steeves went on to say owners and employees alike have a vested interest in seeing every business grow and flourish. “We talk about what we see and what we hear from our customers...sharing thoughts and ideas can only strengthen the community,” she said. “It goes back to the small town feel that I love so much. It’s the common interest to make Steveston succeed as a whole.” Seven years ago, Stevestonite Barbara Dudek realized a long held dream to open B & D Spa on Bayview Street. An esthetician since 1982, Dudek was trained in her native Poland. Dudek echoed Steeves’ sentiments about working in such a supportive atmosphere. There was no question in Dudek’s mind that she would open her business in the quaint village. “Steveston is a friendly and tight-knit community, being so close to a major city it is still able to retain its small town feel,” she said. “Going for a walk, you always pass familiar faces, stopping to chat with other locals. Steveston for me is a home away from home.” With the help of her husband Andy,

Business: Community support a key reason for success Continued from page 24 daughter Daria, and her team of professionally trained estheticians, Dudek’s spa has thrived, in part because of its unique European-style pampering. Clients come from as far as Victoria for Dudek’s soothing, rejuvenating facials. Another fan of Steveston is Candice Goegan, owner of Goegan Spa. Three years ago, the esthetician opened her doors, specializing in treatment facials that are specifically customized to each client’s needs. “What I like best about running a business in Steveston is that it is like being part a quaint small town similar to the small town I was born in,” said the longtime Richmond resident. “It has enabled me to develop relationships quickly with my clients, and word of mouth has played a huge role
in the success of my business so far. “Despite the recession, I have been able to build my business to support three employees through the loyalty of my long standing clients, the referrals and the constant new clients from the local area.” On a personal note, Goegan loves the fact that she runs into familiar faces while meandering or shopping in the neighbourhood. “We often spend our free time in Steveston exploring the unique shops, having lunch on a great patio, going to the best park in Richmond and taking strolls along the boardwalk,” said Goegan. The newcomer is Lacquer Beauty Bar on Moncton Street. Inspired by the noveau chic beauty bars in Miami and New York, Angela Reddy opened what she calls her one-stop boutique

Reddy, who grew up in Richmond from age 10 to 26, researched a number of locations across the Lower Mainland, before settling in Steveston. “Steveston holds such great memories for me and when I moved back to Richmond we chose Steveston to live … it’s a great place and there’s every amenity you need right here.” In less than a year, Reddy has built up a roster of loyal clientele, thanks, she said, to the wonderful ambiance of inclusiveness that permeates across the village.

It’s easy to find serenity in Steveston Eccleshall went on to add: “Spending time at the local businesses feels like you’re on holiday.” She believes there exist a unique camaraderie amongst merchants in the area that is hard to duplicate. “The locals here truly try to support the local businesses and myself and my staff give back as much as we can,” she added. “I have an exceptional group of highly trained staff and I support our six stylists in here ongoing training through the Redken exchange.” Once you’ve looked after your outer self, its time to head to Steveston Village Yoga (behind Alegria Café & Giftware Ltd.) for some meditative and soothing hatha yoga. The boutique studio offers small and intimate classes for all ages.

Steveston is a Mecca for nature lovers and fitness enthusiasts. With the mighty Fraser River at its doorstep, Garry Point Park and kilometers of trails, Steveston is truly a unique outdoor destination. Steveston is home to a number of merchants offering ways to make you look and feel good on the outside and inside. Ask Hair Salon’s Lisa Eccleshall has never looked back since opening her full service hair salon five years ago. “We are set amongst the beautiful backdrop of the Georgia Straight and that was our inspiration for the decor of the salon,” she said. “Our studio has a open and airy feel boasting 25 foot ceilings and calming blues and greens mimicking that of the sea. “I feel truly blessed to own a business in such a beautiful location.”
Four years ago, Langham took her first yoga class and was instantly hooked. “It was transformational and the calming effect was instant,” said Langham. As a busy senior vice-president of a nonprofit organization, yoga helped her cope with the pressure of the job. When she turned 60, she gifted herself by enrolling in a yoga instructor course. When the opportunity to purchase the yoga studio presented itself, Langham quit her high-pressured job and bought it out. “I love it and when I’m here I’m in the right place,” she said. “And working in Steveston, where the merchants really want to see each other succeed is a gift. “I couldn’t believe how many merchants came to introduce themselves and offer me encouragement … that welcome is rare I think.” The studio is bright and welcoming and see Health page 27

Continued from page 26 her roster of clientele includes everyone from the twentysomething to seniors. “We have moms and daughters to fathers and sons coming in together, and there is a range of instructors and different classes to choose from … it is not in the least bit intimidating,” said Langham. Melissa McPhail, owner of Basic Nature Health and Body Store, is all about finding balance between the body, mind and spirit. Less than two years ago, the young entrepreneur took over the store on No. 1 Road. “Health and wellness has always been an interest of mine,” said the 27-year-old Steveston secondary graduate. “When I was dealing with my own health issues I saw the benefits that I received from natural vitamins, homeopathy and energy healing. “So putting that all together in a health store was a leap of faith but one I believed in.” When the store came up for sale, she jumped at the chance of owning a store right in her own backyard. “I can’t think of a better place than Steveston … you can go down the street and know people, you are close to the water and there’s a great sense of community.” Not satisfied with just selling natural and body care health products, McPhail also offers services. Monica Heuser, an integrative energy healing and holistic health practitioner sees clients (by appointment only.) In the back of the store, there is a healing room complete with an infrared sauna and a whole body vibration machine, which is said to increase blood flow. McPhail recently introduced monthly workshops, bringing in guest speakers such as Dr. Neetu Dhiman, a naturopath who gave tips on natural ways to fall asleep. In the end, all agree, Steveston is the perfect spot to live and work.

Jewelry designer Sasha Shkolnik (above) loves to create cutting-edge pieces. Her passion led her to open up a jewelry boutique called Juvelisto on Moncton Street with business partner Muriel Demblans. At right, Tara Ennevor’s love of beautiful pieces from Danish designer-line Pandora inspired her own jewelry shop, Bliss.
Art sparkles in Steveston BY MICHELLE HOPKINS
Long known as a destination for one-of-akind shops, waterfront restaurants and coffee shops, Steveston is also becoming known for being home to unique jewelry stores. Recently, two jewelry boutiques opened their doors in the historic village. Tara Ennevor is a longtime Steveston resident who grew up in a family of entrepreneurs. Ennevor is the daughter of Jack and Jane O’Hare, the couple who founded O’Hare’s Gastro Pub and O’Hare’s Liquor store. She is also the sister of Erinn who, with her husband Grant, now runs the Steveston pub. She and her husband, Mark Ennevor, and accountant, decided they wanted to try their hand at free enterprise. The couple was looking to get into the retail sector as a way for Tara to have more time at home with their young children. She had always been a huge fan of Pandora, international jewelry designers from Denmark, famed for their twist on the classic charm bracelet. “Mark would buy me pieces from their collection and I love the line so much that we started researching the possibility of opening a store, selling Pandora,” said Ennevor. “We wouldn’t even consider anywhere else but Steveston to open a business.” Thus, in February of this year, Bliss was born on First Avenue, next to Waves Coffee House, just in time for Valentine’s Day. “It’s been great … we have received lots of local support,” said Ennevor. “We couldn’t have asked for a better location close to the waterfront. “Steveston is one of those places where merchants support each other and many of us dine and shop here. Even every one of our employees also lives here.” Bliss sells the full line of Pandora jewelry, in both 100 per cent sterling silver and gold. The line includes more than 800 different charms, bracelets, watches and LovePods, which are rings designed to be combined. Bliss also sells unique gifts from local artisans and designers, including soy candles and funky fridge magnets. The young couple said they noticed there
was a niche for a good jewelry store in the village. “Now, people don’t have to go downtown to buy beautiful handcrafted jewelry,” said Ennevor. Jewelry designer and goldsmith Sasha Shkolnik is another Richmondite who chose her own backyard to open up her jewelry boutique — Juvelisto on Moncton Street. “I came from the Ukraine to Richmond 17 years ago,” said Shkolnik. “I always dreamed of opening my own business in Steveston.” As a trained goldsmith and jewelry designer in her native country, it made senses to open a shop to sell her own creations, as well as those of B.C. artisans. “There are so many talented Steveston jewelry designers and I carry jewelry from three local jewelers.” Shkolnik has a bachelor of arts degree from the Ukraine. She began her career as a ceramic artist and painter. “When I was doing ceramics, I ended up creating ceramic jewelry,” she said. “When my husband and I moved to Canada, I took more art and jewelry programs.” Today, the European designer loves to create cutting edge, nontraditional pieces. “I love to have fun with my work and create pieces that customers get excited about,” said Shkolnik. “I was lucky to work with the best of the best jewelry designers prior to opening our shop.” Her business partner is Muriel Demblans. Originally from France, she has lived in B.C. for 17 years. Demblans turned her love of art into a career. The two met when Shkolnik was a customer at Demblans’ Main Street jewelry shop. Soon, Dembans hired her on to create custom design jewelry. They had discussed forming a partnership and both wanted to open a boutique-style shop showcasing original and one-of-a-kind jewelry designs — everything from bold to classic pieces. “Sasha and I decided to combine our talents and efforts to open a boutique together in Steveston on March 22,” Demblans said. “Steveston is an amazing community, such a quaint village with abundant hidden treasures to discover. We have been warmly welcomed, along with our collection of unique jewelry, sculpture, paintings and handbags.”

Whether walking or cycling, seeing the bridge up close can be an amazing experience.
Biking Golden Gate a glorious experience Take a closer look at one of the world’s most iconic structures by cycling across it, discovering what lies beyond Postmedia News
Sausalito is a quirky little waterfront community on the scenic northern coast of California, just beyond the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s a great destination for a day trip from San Francisco — particularly for families with older children, preteens and teens who want to enjoy an active outing together. Be warned, though, the 13-kilometre ride is challenging for younger kids and middle-aged folks who are not used to biking. Our plan for the afternoon had been a simple one: Rent bicycles on Hyde Street, ride to Fisherman’s Wharf, travel

along the Presidio National Park Bike Path to the Golden Gate Bridge, cycle across the bridge and coast down the hill into Sausalito. From there, we would decide whether to bike it back across the bridge or take the easy way back to Fisherman’s Wharf via the ferry. After a short visit to the wharf area, we were on our way to the Presidio National Park bike trail. The scenery along this trail is spectacular and there are many great photo ops as you ride along the edge of the Bay. Near the base of the Golden Gate Bridge, we made a stop at Fort Point National Historic Site, a historic fortification built to protect San Francisco Harbor from Confederate and foreign attack during and after the U.S.
Civil War. An interpretive sign explained that although it was an incredible fortification in its time, Fort Point never had to fire its guns in defence. The fort never came under attack, because its presence served as a deterrent to any who may have considered launching an assault on the Bay. From Fort Point, we climbed a short, steep hill leading up to the sidewalk on the Golden Gate Bridge. Cyclists are allowed to travel on one side of the bridge while walkers travel on the other, but whether you walk or cycle, seeing the bridge up close is an amazing experience. When the bridge was built in 1937, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. Today it is the ninth lonsee Bikes page 4

Bikes: Renting is easy Hot deals for travel lovers
Continued from page 29 gest and you can really appreciate the size and height of the bridge when you ride on it. After stopping on the bridge for some pictures, we followed a bike path leading under the bridge and up over a ridge into the town of Sausalito. The ride up the hill that leads into the town was a bit challenging, but we enjoyed coasting down the other side. By the time we arrived in the town, we had been on our bikes for well over two hours, so we decided to spend the rest of the afternoon just exploring. I was a wee bit tired, but biking across the Golden Gate Bridge is definitely worth the effort. And there’s no shame in
taking the easy way back. There are several companies that offer bike rentals in the San Francisco Bay area. We rented from Blazing Saddles (www. blazingsaddles.com). It costs $36 per day to rent a high performance mountain bike or a deluxe comfort hybrid cruising bike. A high performance comfort tandem bike (a bicycle built for two) would cost $78 per day to rent. If you are unsure of your ability to bike the bridge, you might also consider renting an electric bike for $69 per day.

PRITCHARD, Mary Eleanor
On June 20, 2011 at 5:25 P.M. Mary Eleanor Pritchard of Richmond, B.C. passed away due to complications from her long time struggle with COPD. Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba December 12, 1934. Mary was employed by Shell Canada Winnipeg Branch and was transferred to the Vancouver office in 1967. After early retirement from Shell Canada Mary enjoyed working part time in the Meadow Walk Housing Co-op office. Loving animals as she did, Mary was a tireless and treasured volunteer for the Richmond Animal Protection Society and among her other interests Mary was a loyal supporter of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers football team. Mary is survived by her sister Wanda Pritchard , sister in law Bernie Pritchard, nephew Mark Pritchard and his partner Daryl Tyacke. Mary will be sadly missed by her family, friends and her cats. There will be no funeral service at Mary’s request and in lieu of flowers donations can be made to either the British Columbia Lung Associaton, 2675 Oak St., Vancouver, B.C V6H 2K2 or Richmond Animal Protection Society 12071 No. 5 Road, Richmond, B.C.

The family would like to thank Dr. Emilie Yeung and the Doctors, Nurses and Respiratory Technicians at the ICU unit at Richmond General hospital for their excellent care and exceptional kindness shown to Mary during her time in their care.

Here's How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must ﬁll each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can ﬁgure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
