would devalue neighbouring properties and he also is concerned as to whether the Delta Fire Department has the necessary equipment and training to tackle an upper-storey fire in a building that tall. Delta Fire Chief Dan Copeland could not be reached by press time Wednesday to answer that question. Hogan told council the building would contain 359 apartment suites as well as 24,800 square feet of commercial space on the first four floors and 511 parking stalls in a four-level parkade, with two of those levels above ground. The 1.5-acre site could accommodate two towers, Hogan said, but the developer opted for only one because two would limit views and cast a broader shadow. Some people at the hearing chuckled after Hogan told council the project would increase local traffic by about two per cent. “The intersections in the area are sized with ample capacity to handle

that additional traffic load.” At the outset of the threehour hearing, municipal staff told council that one person had registered their support for the project, 13 were against, and a 112-signature petition against the project had been filed. Hogan said there are 300 letters from local residents in support. All told, at Tuesday’s hearing eight spoke in support of the project while another 18 spoke either against it or expressed concerns. One speaker said he was “blown away” – in a bad sense, that is – when he heard about the height proposed and suggested council is “on an ego trip” for even contemplating the project. Another speaker said he doesn’t want to see highrises popping up in North Delta as they have elsewhere in Greater Vancouver. “I don’t want to see North Delta become another Burnaby,” he said. tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

Blexo Developments Ltd. wants to build a highrise at 11941-80th Ave., in North Delta, where a nursery and coffee shop used to be before they were demolished in 2004.

North Delta doesn’t want to be Burnaby. That’s what Delta council heard Tuesday night as residents packed into a public hearing at Kennedy Seniors Recreation Centre to speak their piece about a 37-storey apartment tower proposed to be built near Scott Road. Blexo Developments Ltd. wants to build the highrise at 11941 80th Ave., where a nursery and coffee shop used to be before they were demolished in 2004. Council could be voting on it as early as next Monday. If approved, the building would be by far the tallest in North Delta. Runnersup would be the three 14-storey buildings now standing, one at 88th Avenue and 119th Street and the other two across the street from where this new building would be built, just south of the Delta Shoppers Mall off Scott Road. “We feel this is the best location in Delta to locate such a project,” said Colin Hogan, of Focus Architecture Inc. Hogan hopes the project – if approved – will act “as a catalyst for future development in Delta.” Resident Keith Shotbolt didn’t share that sentiment. “Traffic in North Delta is a nightmare and this will make it worse,” Shotbolt told council. He said he fears such a building

City moves casino proposal to public hearing Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

As supporters and opponents packed a crowded council chamber, Surrey council voted 8-1 to move forward with the gaming application for a proposed casino and entertainment complex in South Surrey. It was the last step before the public would be allowed to share their thoughts on the project with council directly, which will come in the form of a public hearing to be held on Jan. 14 in the New Year. Terry McNiece, president of the South Surrey Ratepayers Association, said council’s decision to move forward with the application to a public hearing was not a surprise. He said the next step is planning on what to say at the public hearing. Tanya Gabara, community liaison for Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Limited, said they were eager to move forward. “We were happy to hear the city say how important it was for everybody’s opinion to be heard and to move forward to this public information meeting,” said Gabara. As for the roughly 200 or so people who came out to city hall wearing T-shirts showing support for Gateway, Gabara said they comprised supporters, employees and friends of Gateway. “The level of support that came out was amazing,” she said, adding that Gateway had chartered buses for supporters wanting to attend. “We had several hundred people coming out so we felt this would be a good way to ensure that everybody who wanted to come got there and was able to find space.” Coun. Marvin Hunt, the lone councillor who voted against the application, said he’s ready to hear from the public about the proposed project, despite voting against the motion to move forward with the gaming application. When asked why he voted the way he did, Hunt said it wasn’t because Marvin Hunt he was opposed to allowing the public to have their input, but that he was opposed to the casino itself. “The generality is that you always vote for the public hearing but the reason I voted against it is simply that I am continuing a voting pattern I have in that I think there is enough gaming around for everyone,” he said. “By the same token, I wouldn’t be reading a lot into the other council members voting for that because it was a vote to hear from the public and that was a positive thing.” cpoon@thenownewspaper.com

Construction mishap on Maple Street

Firefighters battle a blaze in White Rock that left a 32-year-old man with burns and a broken arm on Wednesday morning. The fire broke out at house under construction on Maple Street. According to White Rock Deputy Fire Chief Bob Schlase, the fire was the result of some torch work being done

by crews working on the second floor. Schlase said the worker jumped from the second floor to the ground, breaking his arm. The blaze was contained in under an hour, taking around 16 firefighters to combat it. See more on this story online at thenownewspaper.com. (Photo: KEVIN HILL)

No reason to keep ‘horrific’ assault secret, says Urban Mission’s Jonquil Hallgate

Beaten woman, 43, found partially clothed in Whalley parking lot Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

A Whalley woman continues to fight for her life in hospital as questions are being raised why her vicious beating has received less attention than other crimes in more affluent Surrey neighbourhoods. Surrey Mounties continue to investigate the Dec. 2 beating of a 43-year-old woman who was found partially clothed and falling in and out of consciousness in a Whalley parking lot. A passerby called police after finding her in the 13500-block of 106th Avenue, shortly after noon that Sunday. She remains in critical condition. News reports indicate she’d been chained to a tree and that one of her eyes had been

scratched out over a drug debt. Police said they did not find her chained up. “That’s what somebody said, but not us,” Cpl. Bert Paquet said. “It’s safe to say she suffered lifethreatening injuries, including facial injuries and fractures. There’s a lot of those details we can’t get into.” Paquet said the Surrey RCMP has “several dedicated officers” on the case but they have not yet identified a suspect. Police didn’t discuss the assault publicly until two days after the victim – whose name has not been released – had been found. “We had confirmed from the early stages that the greater public was not at risk in this case,” Paquet offered. “We have no reason to believe the greater public is at risk.” The neighbourhood where the assault took place is one of the roughest and most socially troubled areas in the Lower Mainland. Jonquil Hallgate, who operates the Surrey Urban Mission not far from where

the woman was found, questioned why this “horrific” case received so little public attention compared to a hit-and-run crash in South Surrey where two joggers were injured. “What makes that more newsworthy?” she asked. “Why is this not public?” Hallgate said she suspects the Whalley beating victim didn’t draw similar attention because her story didn’t involve “middle-class women doing what middleclass women do.” “That’s my perception,” she said. “If it was anybody else, there’d be a huge media outcry.” Chief Supt. Bill Fordy, in charge of the Surrey RCMP, said both crimes are being taken seriously. “Everybody matters,” he said. “No one’s life is more important than somebody else’s life.” Police ask witnesses or anyone with information in connection with the woman’s assault in Whalley to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502. tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

Young entrepreneur noticed nationally Surrey’s Michael Cheng selected for program that fosters future leaders

Cookie. The concept is to provide small businesses with the means to have a professional website by putting the responsibility of maintenance and hosting on Witty Cookie rather than the business in question. “Traditionally the web design industry has been a buy and sell process. You buy a design, you get the website and the relationship is over,” said Cheng. “So what we did was break it down into small monthly payments and there’s no setup fees for small business owners. The service plans start at $20 a month, and that includes design, hosting and their presence is pretty much taken care of.” As for his entrepreneurial role model, Apple founder Steve Jobs, Cheng isn’t hoping to follow in his footsteps – he wants to be his own man – but greatly admires everything Jobs did during his time on this planet. “He really never listened to anyone and was so strong in his vision that every time somebody told him he was doing the wrong thing and going in the wrong direction he just followed through and it worked out tremendously,” said Cheng. “Hopefully I’ll be the first Michael Cheng.”

Michael Cheng’s entrepreneurial spirit has been noticed on a national stage.

Delta staff raise $70K for the United Way Delta’s municipal employees have raised nearly $70,000 in donations for the United Way, besting last year’s effort by more than $9,000. “I am continually overwhelmed by the generosity of Delta staff,” Mayor Lois Jackson said. Proceeds will support preventionbased initiatives that tackle such issues as poverty, bullying and seniors’ isolation. It’s the seventh consecutive year Delta’s municipal employees have exceeded their fundraising goal. Meanwhile, the Surrey RCMP launched a campaign Wednesday asking people to help fill a patrol car with non-perishable food donations for the Surrey Food Bank. The “Pack the Police Car” campaign will run for 12 days, at the Save-On Foods stores in South Surrey and on King George Boulevard in Newton, and Price Smart Foods on Fraser Highway in Fleetwood. “We hope that the citizens of Surrey give generously and help us pack our police cars full of healthy meals to help the many families in need at this time of the year,” said Insp.

Since that time, Cheng has founded a successful web design company, established a popular series of TED talks at Simon Fraser University and most recently was selected out of thousands of Canadians to be a part of The Next 36, a national program aimed at fostering tomorrow’s business leaders. “The idea behind the program is the Canadian and U.S. economy, there’s a huge gap and based on research it’s not because of production per capita,” said Cheng, who attends Surrey’s SFU campus. “The average

Surrey city council has approved an amendment to the city’s anti-smoking bylaw that will ban smoking on hospital grounds except in designated smoking areas. The decision made Monday means smokers will no longer be allowed to light up at Surrey Memorial Hospital and the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre – not that they were allowed before. The bylaw prohibits smoking within 7.5 metres of any opening to a building, but Fraser Health found that many people ignored the no-smoking signs. “There’s obviously been issues around our ability to enforce smoke-free policies here and this is a widespread problem,” said Dr. Helena Swinkels, a medical health officer with Fraser Health. “There have been complaints on and off for a number of years from patients and from visitors that they’re unhappy to walk through clouds of secondhand smoke to access health-care facilities.” Smoking will not be permitted in the

parking lot or open areas on hospital grounds, even if they are 7.5 metres away from open windows and doors. Anyone found in violation of the bylaw will be subject to a $100 fine. Smoking would only be allowed in designated smoking areas – primarily for patients who, for instance, smoke medicinal marijuana to treat their illnesses – but Swinkels said Fraser Health is looking into whether or not those areas are needed. “Currently, we don’t have any of those smoking areas,” she said. “We haven’t taken that decision as of yet as to whether those will be necessary.” Swinkels said nearby hospitals have not expressed an interest in passing a similar ban, but said the authority is open to working with other hospitals. “This was an important issue for the City of Surrey and that’s the municipality we’re working with right now,” she said. “Fraser Health is using this as an opportunity to really renew and refresh our smoke-free policy.” jacobzinn@gmail.com

He said investigators are reviewing footage with the hope of catching the arsonist or arsonists in the act. Meantime, Surrey RCMP Chief Supt. Bill Fordy told a Surrey Board of Trade luncheon on Tuesday that the courts consider video footage, taken from businesses’ surveillance cameras, to be among the best evidence available to put criminals behind bars. “It’s very valuable,” Fordy said.

Depending on sin taxes is lose-lose ViewFrom TheCheap Seats Michael Booth

I

t’s a sin to tell a lie. Yeah, I know lies are immoral, but at least they’re cheap. By my count, bearing false witness and adultery are a few of the only sins left that the government hasn’t found a way to tax. Once upon a time, governments relied on industry, property, sales and income taxes to cover their expenses. Lots of industry equaled lots of jobs, which equaled lots of revenue for the assorted levels of government. (I’m sure an economist or six will find such a formula simplistic, but that’s basically how it works.) Governments have also supplemented their honest income with so-called sin taxes, extra levies applied to vices like tobacco and alcohol. Now we are running out of smokers and since we don’t drink nearly enough booze to make up the difference, governments have turned to other versions of the sin tax to keep their deficit

numbers from spiralling out of control. Gasoline is the new sin in our eco-conscious society and, as a result, the high price of dead dinosaur juice is rooted almost as much in taxes as it is in researching, drilling, transporting and refining the petroleum. The problem with relying on gasoline as a source of tax revenue is it carries with it a double burden. On the one hand, the government needs people driving for them to keep paying the gas tax. But to keep cars on the road and credit cards whisking through the scanners at gas stations, money must be spent on infrastructure to maintain the road system. Unfortunately, the roads in the Lower Mainland are already jammed, leaving the government facing a twin terror in the form of infrastructure for drivers and expanding the current transit system. The latest miracle cure the politicians are flocking to is tolling new and existing bridges. I have no problem with the concept of putting tolls on bridges – if you use it, you should help pay for it. But make sure the cost of the tolls is not prohibitive. A loonie to cross? Fair

enough. But instead we have bridge tolls set at more than $3 – roughly the cost of a one-zone bus ticket. It’s like a warped attempt by the government to force people to use an inefficient transit system by penalizing them for driving their cars. Sorry, that’s out of line. Having bridge tolls equal to transit fares isn’t the official policy; it’s just a happy coincidence, right? ’Cause it would be wrong to tax people for building a transit system and then fine them for not using it. I know of one fellow who calculated that with his family’s usual commuting and travel schedules, they would be spending $7,000 more each year just to pay for tolls on the new Port Mann Bridge. He’s solving the problem by building a new home in Coquitlam. Sorry Metro Vancouver, that doesn’t add up to four less vehicles off the road and four more butts on bus seats.

Traffic will still suck, transit will still be inefficient for the average suburbanite, and he and his family will have $7,000 more in their jeans and not servicing a mountain of government debt. Another sin targeted by the folks in the pinstriped suits has been around almost as long as the dinosaurs. Gambling is an easy mark for governments because it’s like free money. The house gets its cut, the government gets a taste and every once in a while, a taxpayer will come out ahead after an evening at the casino. It started with bingo games in church basements, which begat a lottery in the 1970s to help fund the Montreal Olympics. Lotteries expanded from single tickets offering a $250,000 prize every week into 6/49 with its enticing growing jackpot, which in turn spawned twice weekly draws plus scratch-and-win tickets plus Lotto Max, plus,

plus, plus.... The revenues from these games initially paid for community initiatives, but it wasn’t long before the governments were dipping their fingers into that as well, leaving service organizations and other special interest societies to start their own lotto games to make up the gap. The government kept pace by allowing casinos to be built to increase the gambling dollars flowing in. Now casinos are like Starbucks – it seems like there’s one on every corner. We are now so dependent on casino and gambling revenue that debates concerning new gaming palaces brush aside concerns like addiction and social ills and instead focus on how much money the new slot jockey emporium will generate. The proposed new casino project in South Surrey is estimated to be capable of

producing more than $3 million dollars a year for the City of Surrey. Sounds impressive – except sin taxes are not new money being injected into the economy. It’s recycled cash skimmed off the population after they have already paid their income taxes. It may fill the government coffers, but it certainly doesn’t help the economy. The current government dependence on sin taxes is a lose-lose situation. Having a population that relies on people operating slot machines and dealing cards is no replacement for skilled tradespeople working at jobs that actually produce marketable products. You know, things that actually generate new revenue and contribute to the real economy. Michael Booth can be reached at mbooth@ thenownewspaper.com

Do you have somebody you would like to thank? Or maybe something you want to get off your chest? Send your rose or rotten tomato to edit@thenownewspaper.com. Please keep submissions under 50 words. Watch for Roses and Rotten Tomatoes in the Thursday issue of the now

My family and I would like to send a huge bouquet of roses to the family who paid our bill at the Swiss Chalet in Surrey on Dec. 8. It was a very unexpected surprise. Your kindness and generosity was much appreciated. We will be sure to pay it forward in the very near future. Thank you. After our Grey Cup party, one of my guests responsibly took a cab home and left his vehicle on the street. My neighbour didn’t like that his truck was left on “their” side of the street, so they got it ticketed for being closer than three metres to their driveway before he could pick it up the next day. Nice neighbours, huh? A recycling truck full of rotten tomatoes to the youth who are desecrating beautiful holly trees in Royal Kwantlen Park. They have made a muddy mess cutting down blackberry bushes and these beautiful holly trees. Who would authorize such an activity? And when is Surrey parks going to pick up the mess?

Dozens of spectacular roses to the Delta Police Pipe and Drum band that gave us all chills when they accompanied Paul McCartney for their rendition of “Mull of Kintyre” at the Paul McCartney concert Nov 25. Congrats, you made us all very proud. A huge bouquet of roses to the woman who found my cellphone with credit cards, ID and money in the Cloverdale IGA parking lot. Thank you! Rotten tomatoes to the driver who yelled at my daughter and I for walking on the side of the road (no sidewalk). He says he was blinded by the lights of the oncoming car and if we had pointed our flashlights toward him, he might not have hit us. Rotten tomatoes to the complainers in our trailer park who complain and gossip about everything and everyone. If you detest it here, move. We all follow rules so why don’t you learn to be grateful and get along with your neighbours – you will one day need them.

Rotten tomatoes to Grandview Corners for showing a lack of Christmas spirit in its attempt at decorating for the season. Next to Morgan Crossing’s great showing, it looks like you’re just going through the motions. Create an environment where we want to spend more time and, maybe, more money. A hospital full of red roses to Fraser Health and thank you for the break in the parking fees. Rotten tomatoes to McDonald’s in North Surrey for kicking out innocent teens just for eating and playing cards. Rotten tomatoes to the loud obnoxious rednecks in the lounge at the South Surrey restaurant Saturday night. And more tomatoes to the staff – after I complained about them being overserved and after moving tables, the waitress brought them another round of drinks. Nice. Roses to the fancy new lounge in Cloverdale. Good value.

If cellphones distract, what about giant TVs?

The Editor, In recent years, our leaders have instructed us to move toward hands-free devices in our cars so that we are not distracted while driving. Given the amount of cellphone and mobile device use I see while commuting throughout the day, I would say this law is largely ignored. The police have set up road checks to catch those people who continue to use their cellphones while driving. Those same police issue tickets to those who get caught in the act. Are those same police officers going to be the ones attending all the of the rearend collisions at the entrance to the new Port Mann Bridge, caused by those people watching the incredibly large TV installed right before the bridge? Is that not just as much of a distraction as a hand-held device? Maybe it is a solution to help us tolerate the increased wait times we will have to endure caused by all of the merging traffic taking place right before the bridge. ICBC, get ready for an increase in low-velocity rear-end collision claims on Highway 1 westbound. Hopefully they show the Canucks games on the big screen or, better yet, traffic reports.

Great care at SMH The Editor, My wife recently required treatment in the Surrey Memorial Hospital emergency room and was referred to the Jim Pattison Centre due to flooding. I want to commend the staff for their kind, professional and respectful treatment in spite of the disruption in facilities. We appreciate their work ethic even in the face of their own hardship and are thankful for how they treated our family. Jagdev S. Jatana, Surrey

Three pet peeves The Editor, I have three pet peeves I’d like to share. The first is those in grocery stores who insist on leaving their food cart in the middle of an aisle and go off looking for something, blocking everyone else. The second is people who talk so loud on their cellphone that the whole restaurant can hear every word. The third is drivers who change lanes or turn corners without using their signals. I feel better getting those off my chest.

Fundraiser in White Rock

Season’s beatings at charity show Jacob Zinn

Now contributor Twitter @jacobzinn

All Star Wrestling is laying the smackdown on giftless Christmases! On Tuesday evening (Dec. 18), White Rock Elks Lodge will host ASW’s third annual Bodyslams for Toys event, a benefit wrestling show that collects toys and distributes them to local charity shops. This year, the wrestling company is accepting packaged, unopened toys worth $10 or more as admission for adults to the event. “We encourage people to bring every kid (they) know – they’re free to get in – and bring as many toys as you want if you’re feeling charitable,” said Bryon Walters, also known as Joe Bruiser, one half of the tag team champions The Breakers. The toys will be split between the Elks Lodge’s annual children’s Christmas party and the White Rock Salvation Army. The hall fits up to 150 people – the ASW typically performs before crowds of up to 500 – but Walters is hopeful the smaller crowd will be able to spread the same amount of holiday cheer. “I’m hoping it’s a success because we’ve had up to six or seven huge boxes, just filled to the top overflowing with toys, in the past,” he said. The wrestling card includes a 20man over-the-top-rope battle royale, a cruiserweight championship bout and a match for the tag-team titles. The Breakers will be defending their belts against an unusual opponent. “We’ll be taking on the Grappling Gorilla, which is a wrestling gorilla – this is more for the kids,” said Walters. “He wears a complete gorilla suit with wrestling head gear – the things that keep your ears from getting cauliflowered – and a pair of Hawaiian shorts on.” The charity show is ASW’s second wrestling event at Elks Lodge since the company made its White Rock debut

We encourage people to bring every kid (they) know – they’re free to get in – and bring as many toys as you want if you’re feeling charitable. I’m hoping it’s a success because we’ve had up to six or seven huge boxes, just filled to the top overflowing with toys, in the past.

in October. “I always wanted to bring wrestling to White Rock because it’s never been in all the years – all through the ’50s and ’60s and ’70s, they never had it,” said Walters. Tuesday’s event is family friendly – “No

swearing or beating guys’ heads in with baseball bats” – so parents don’t have to worry about any in-ring bloodbaths or explicit language. Just some clean jokes and slapstick fights. “There’s going to be some heavy slams

and heavy hits, but it’s mostly for fun otherwise. It’s not going to be anything violent.” After the show, the wrestlers will hold a party upstairs in the lounge for anyone who wants to meet the wrestlers or have a cheap drink. And in early 2013, ASW will host its annual Wrestling for Hunger event, which gathers non-perishable food donations for local food banks. The bell sounds at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday at Elks Lodge, located at 1469 George St. For more information, call 604-710-0872 or visit aswcanada.com.

ARTS & LIFE On stage at Surrey Arts Centre

One game dame: Panto still perfect for performer, 75 Tom Zillich

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

During the fall months each year, Alan Cedargreen can be found telling bad jokes, singing silly songs and prancing around a cold rehearsal hall or warm stage, with or without a wig. It’s been his annual ritual for about a quarter century and, at age 75, the Surrey resident is still thrilled playing the dame in pantomimes brought to the stage by director/writer Ellie King and Royal Canadian Theatre Company. This season, he’s witty Kitty Crusoe in Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates, a family-friendly adventure at Surrey Arts Centre from Dec. 20 to Jan. 6 (for details, call 604-5015566 or visit www.rctheatreco. com). Cedargreen has been King’s go-to dame in her pantos since the early 1990s, save for a couple shows over the years. “He just gets it,” King told the Now. “The dame is a very difficult role to play. It’s not a drag act, it’s a man in a dress, and there’s a big

difference. The man in the dress can make jokes about both males and females equally, and Alan somehow manages to walk that line.” Cedargreen’s dame is a particularly nice one, she added. “There seems to be two kinds of dames: there’s the motherly, nice, sweet and friendly, almost childlike dame, and then there’s the fierce, man-hungry, booze-guzzling, out-of-left-field kind of dame. Alan is the nice one, and he has a particular rapport with kids, he really does. The kids just love him, and the adults love him, too.” Up until age 45 or so, Cedargreen couldn’t stand to speak publicly. “Something in me was let loose around 25 years ago,” he said during a break from rehearsal Sunday at Newton Cultural Centre. “Not until I was 50 or so did I start playing the dame in these pantos on a regular basis – it just came to life for me. I don’t know where that came from.” Today, no members of Cedargreen’s family play a part

in the Royal Canadian pantos – they all just accept he’s a busy man in the weeks before and after Christmas. Growing up in Britain, his family made a tradition of seeing a panto on Boxing Day. The dame was always played slapstick by a comedian of note – cream pies in the face, outrageous costumes, funny stuff. It’s a tradition Cedargreen warmly embraces, especially for kids in the crowd. “It’s such a great way to spend Christmas, it really is,” he said.

“It reminds me of when I was a child, so to be able to spread a bit of Christmas cheer, it’s a good feeling.” Such acting is also a good way to stay fit, he added. “This helps!” he said with a laugh. “It’s about three months of rehearsals and show dates, and it’s pretty physical. It’s a lot of energy, especially when you go on stage – the adrenaline shoots up and I feel like a kid up there. And then I go home and crawl up the stairs and my wife just laughs at me. And

I overact, so everything is big and it does drain you a bit. I just don’t feel that on stage, that’s all.” The stage for Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates will be populated by more than 40 performers – cannibals, fire demons, cruise ship captains and others, plus a volcano, hula dancing and tropical colours. Describing it all, Cedargreen smiled. “This is going to be a good one,” he said. Later, King said she’s amazed by how Cedargreen is still able to “skip around the stage like a twoyear-old.… I don’t know many more years he’ll be dame-ing, to be honest, but he’s a bit of an icon in a small way. I don’t think he’s ready to retire or anything, but when he does, it will be a sad day for panto.” tzillich@thenownewspaper.com

New city council chamber to double as performance space Jacob Zinn

Now contributor Twitter @jacobzinn

By next fall, Surrey artists will have another venue to perform in: the new council chambers. The chambers at the new city hall, on track for completion by September 2013, will double as a live performance space, allowing musicians, actors and the like a 200-seat space to hone their crafts. “It tied into our mayor and council’s vision to create the new city hall as a focal point in our City Centre area,” said Laurie Cavan, general manager of the city’s Parks, Recreation and Culture department. “When we took that as their vision, we looked at how can we make the city hall more accessible and be of value as an asset to the community.” The city looked at the arts community and discovered a need for more places to stage live events in Surrey. “Performing arts space is something in really high demand,” she said. “Our current arts centre is at capacity most of the time, so when we spoke with the arts community, they

were really excited about this opportunity.” While council meetings are still the venue’s priority, Cavan said it makes sense to make the chambers a multi-purpose space within city hall. “When you think of it, council meets every two weeks, so there is an opportunity in between to utilize it for other community uses,” she said. The venue – much smaller than the 1,600-seat performing arts centre planned for Surrey’s downtown core – could host small jazz concerts, theatre performances, children’s concerts and even educational presentations and lectures. “You might not have a full symphony, but you could have a small ensemble,” she said. Cavan said this is the first venue the city knows of to be built as a council chamber first and a performing arts venue second. The council chambers in Port Moody hosts live arts, but their chamber is built the other way around – as a performance venue first and council chambers second. “Some cities have tried to do it, but I think ours is the most unique design of any other city we’ve been able to source,” she said.

othing compares to the aroma of baked Christmas goodies when coming in from the cold winter weather. Our olfactory sensations (our sense of smell) contribute up to 80 per cent to our sense of taste, and thus is a very important part of our ability to recognize and enjoy flavour. The art of holiday baking is a regular activity in many households this time of the year, and some baking tips may be helpful to you. Flaky pie dough is a pastry that has a mixture of shortening and/or butter that is “cut in,” so that there are small chunks still left in the finished product. This aids in creating steam pockets within the crust, which help with the leavening process and resulting in the flaky texture. It is best to keep pie pastry as cold as possible while mixing and rolling to prevent melting the butter and shortening pieces prematurely. The best way of doing this is to first focus on your ingredients. Make sure you are using ice water instead of cold water, and frozen butter grated into the flour mixture is ideal. The frozen butter particles then are already the required size from the grater and will not suffer from the warm friction of too much mixing or “cutting” in. Secondly, try not to touch the dough with your hands too much, as the warmth from them will melt the butter. It is best to form the dough by folding it over consistently with a chilled metal dough cutter. Once the dough is formed into a flat disk,

wrap and place it in the refrigerator until thoroughly chilled. Remove and proceed with rolling, ideally on a chilled marble surface. Cookies and quick breads are also very popular, and they both rely on baking soda and/or baking powder to rise. Baking soda and baking powder are considered chemical leaveners. Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate and it requires liquid and an acid to make a gaseous reaction. It is usually added to recipes that have a naturally occurring acid in the ingredients, such as buttermilk, yogurt, sour cream, honey, molasses and fruits. On the other hand, baking powder is a complete leavener, as it only requires liquid for it to react in the same manner. The reason for this is it contains a mixture of baking soda and the balanced amount of acid, along with starch, to help prevent lumping. This is why you will see some recipes that call for baking powder and others with baking powder and/or baking soda. A good comparison of this would be a pancake recipe compared to a buttermilk pancake recipe. Whatever desserts you choose to celebrate with, I wish you all the best of health and happiness this holiday season. Dear Chef Dez, Could you please tell me how I can make self-rising flour by myself? Kimie T., Maple Ridge Dear Kimie, Yes, by all means. Mix together one cup of flour with one and a half teaspoons of baking powder, and half a teaspoon of salt. Send your food/cooking questions to dez@ chefdez.com.

inter officially begins Dec. 21. That will be the day with the fewest daylight hours. Dark, dark, dark. Ah, but we have come a long way in the history of the human race and can artificially light up the dark days. We know how. It doesn’t always have to be high-tech light with fibre optics and halogen light bulbs. We have the knowledge of how to make lanterns and such. Semiahmoo Arts is offering two events for this Winter Solstice (the short daylight days): Winter Solstice Lantern Making Workshop this Saturday, Dec. 15 and Winter Solstice Celebration of Light on Saturday, Dec. 22. The workshop on the 15th is family-friendly, costs $15 per person and all the basic supplies are included. The tools, supplies (bring your own extra decorations like glitter, feathers, etc.) and instructions await your arrival at the event, from noon to 4 p.m. at Semiahmoo Arts, 14600 North Bluff Rd., White Rock. Children 10 and under must have adult companion. Whether you make a lantern or not, you can still join in the Winter Solstice Celebration of Light, held from 5 to 7 p.m. Lots of lanterns will guide your path from the Semiahmoo Arts studio in Centennial Park to the wooded area next to the building. Entertainment along the way includes melodies from Soul of the World Community Choir, dancing from XBa DanceCo and a fire-spinning performance by Vancouver Fire Collective. Afterward, warm up at the arts studio with warm beverages and tasty treats. Those who attended the lantern-making workshops will be able to light their lanterns to join in

The 39 Steps, a comedy based on the Alfred Hitchcock film, is part of the Arts Club’s play series at Surrey Arts Centre. A limited-time “flex pass” deal for tickets ends Dec. 23. the celebration. Additional lanterns will be available for purchase at Semiahmoo Arts (call 604-536-8333 for more details). Still wanting a Christmas concert? First Capital Barbershop Chorus member Leigh Anderson would like the choir’s annual Christmas concert added to the list I had last week. Sure, Leigh. No problem. The awardwinning First Cap Chorus provides a great show all on their own, but they include lots of other music makers at this time of year. The group’s 2012 Langley Christmas Bureau benefit concert is Saturday, Dec. 15, 7:30 p.m. at Chandos Pattison Auditorium, with many groups involved. Tickets are $20/$15/$5 at the door, with all proceeds to Langley Christmas Bureau. For more info, contact Gord Harris at 604-530-4795. This is a big auditorium; you should be able to get tickets at the door, no prob. OK, so the days are still dark and Christmas Day is fast approaching. For those still seeking the perfect gift, here are two ideas: I always appreciate tickets to live theatre – and you must have someone on your list who enjoys these outings as well. The Arts Club’s Surrey Spectacular Series continues in the new year

with two hit shows. You can purchase a four-ticket flex pass for $99 – use all four tickets for one show or split them between the two, at Surrey Arts Centre. Great gift! But you have to do it now, as this offer is valid only until Dec. 23 (call 604501-5566). The two shows offered are winners: Henry and Alice: Into the Wild (Jan. 15 to 26) and Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps. (Feb. 26 to March 9). Wow. Here’s my last suggestion for a super gift: Give someone a membership to the Arts Council of Surrey. The cost of membership is as low as $22.40 for the year. ACS is a very large, active and growing arts council, and it has done wonders for the City of Surrey and its arts and cultural endeavours. You don’t have to go to meetings, attend any events or help fundraise – although that is always an option. Membership includes a sleek, informative monthly news magazine with pages and pages of very useful information. For membership forms, email info@ artscouncilofsurrey.ca, phone 604-594-2700, visit www. artscouncilofsurrey.ca or drop by the arts council’s office at Newton Cultural Centre, 13530 72nd Ave. Betcha they can even gift-wrap a membership if you need that service, too.

Riverdale Elementary vice-principal Greg Hopps is amazed at how quickly his Sticks and Stars program has spread in just three years. (Photo: KEVIN HILL)

Sticks and Stars program makes an impact Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

Simple lessons often have the biggest impact. Greg Hopps knows this first hand after watching his innovative elementary school after-hours sessions blossom into a fullfledged sanctioned program with the Surrey School District. Sticks and Stars is now offered at four different elementary schools in the district and it recently attracted $25,000 in sponsorship money from the Royal Bank. “I had no idea it would turn out like this; it’s so cool,” Hopps marvelled. “It’s now becoming what I wanted to be although there are a couple of what I considered to be key components that have been lost a bit. That’s all part of growth in turning a small idea into something bigger. It’s better now for sure, even if it is different.” In his first year as a vice-principal at Cougar Creek Elementary in Newton in 2010, Hopps and principal Raminder

 



manager of Business Development Services, helped bring the Royal Bank on board, and now Sticks and Stars has partnered with a number of education enterprises to increase the scope of activities for the students. This year the kids will get to take part in several on-ice hockey sessions with the Pacific Titans Hockey Academy as well as educational components conducted by such groups as HR MacMillan Space Centre, SFU Mechatronics Lab, High- Touch High Tech and Mad Science. Hopps has moved on to Surrey’s Riverdale Elementary this year and has brought the program with him. He is surprised at how quickly the program has grown but said the true reward is seeing how excited the kids are about participating. When he sent out registration forms this week, the contents of the Sticks and Stars schedule created a buzz among the Riverdale boys. “The schools are getting some new ball hockey equipment and the kids are so pumped about it,” Hopps said. “The best thing is there is an academic component to it and the kids really enjoy it.”

a positive attitude; and be a good boy means behave well. So I thought, maybe some of these boys could benefit from lessons like that.” The new program operated on Saturday afternoon and began as a basketball session in the school gym coupled with a leadership lesson each week. Given Canada’s hockeymad culture, it was just a matter of time before the switch was made from the big orange basketballs to the smaller, neon orange missiles used in ball hockey. The program spread to two schools in 2011 and this year is operating at four locations in Surrey. The cost for participants is free but Hopps admits not all of the kids who sign up have a choice in the matter. “It’s pretty accessible and almost every kid who wants to get in can get in. At the same time, there are several kids at each school where we tell them, ‘You have to be in this program. This is such a good program for you and you need to be there.’ I’ll make the call home and tell the parents that their boy needs to be in this program.” Liane Ricou, the Surrey School District’s

Randhawa put their heads together about ways to reach out to some of the at-risk kids in the school. The two men knew that around the Grade 5 age group, boys were becoming more aware of social trends, peer groups and Internet gaming. They were also picking up on some less desirable trends, including the sort of fancy vehicles favoured by the underground gang culture. The goal was to reach out to these kids in a way that would strengthen their selfconfidence and self-esteem while providing them with solid leadership skills. Hopps said everything the program aimed to teach could be boiled down to what he told his own son before minor hockey games. “When I’m tying up my son’s skates, I tell him three things: Do your best, have fun, and most importantly, be a good boy,” Hopps said. “I tell him that because those are three things he can control. I’m a vice-principal now, and I find a lot of the discipline issues I deal with come down to those three things. And the older the kids get, those three things keep coming up - do your best means have a strong work ethic; have fun now means have

Warriors fall short in final versus Kitsilano The Warriors opened the tournament with a 86-49 romp past Archbishop Carney followed by a 64-38 quarterfinal win over Sardis. White Rock then outlasted Vancouver College 90-81 in the semifinal round to set up a date with Kits in Saturday’s finale. “Kits is definitely the strongest B.C. team we’ve played for sure,” Shury said. “Their big man Luca ‘the Bazooka’ (Zaharijeni) in the middle creates problems but he didn’t do much scoring-wise against us. We did a good job of checking him but their point guard, Justin Sze went off with seven threes and bunch of free throws. He was the difference in the final for them.” White Rock’s Tyus Allen and Varton Tanielian were each named to the tournament all-star team. Allen and Matthew Perrin received HSBC scholarships along with Fleetwood Park’s Simram Bir.

The White Rock Christian Academy Warriors got a first-hand look at the top rated team in B.C. high school hoops at the 2012 Telus Basketball Classic last weekend. The Warriors advanced to the tourney’s title game before settling for a silver medal following an 81-70 loss to the high-flying Kitsilano Blue Demons. It was the first loss of the season to a B.C. team for the third-ranked Warriors. “The one thing that we have to learn is to stay away from foul trouble,” said Warriors coach Dale Shury. “That’s going to be an ongoing thing with us, especially because we have such a short bench. “In a big game we can’t afford to have even one guy in foul trouble and against Kits, that was a factor. We had one starter only play half the game because he got into foul trouble early and that affected the rest of the team.”

Surrey United finished off the first half of the Metro Women’s Soccer League premier season by surviving a late scare in a 2-1 win on the road over Burnaby’s Columbus Sunday. Surrey appeared to have the game in hand with a comfortable 2-0 lead before Columbus made things interesting.

SPORTS Premier soccer

Surging Pegasus pulls out a win over Hurricanes Newton’s ICST Pegasus ran their current unbeaten streak to three games by quelling the Delta United Hurricanes 2-1 in Vancouver Metro Soccer League premier action Sunday at John Oliver Park. The game was a match between two teams headed in opposite directions. The Horsemen, the defending league champs, are regaining their form after a discouraging start to the season. The Hurricanes, meanwhile, have sputtered along for most of the season after a thrilling run to the provincial championship game last May. Sunday’s loss means Delta has just one point to show for their last four outings. Sunday’s date with the Horsemen was a seesaw affair as the two sides battled to the final whistle. Pegasus opened the scoring with a goal from Ryan Powell after some fine passing between Jag Gill and Omari Aldridge. The Hurricanes answered quickly and tied the affair in the 25th minute when Gagan Josan’s long shot careened off a Pegasus defender and into the goal.

The Horsemen pressed to the attack in the second half and created a number of quality scoring chances before Gurjit Dhaliwal finally scored to put Pegasus ahead for good in the 65th minute. Elsewhere, the Rovers CCBTU remain mired in a serious funk after dropping their fourth consecutive game, this time 2-1 to West Van at Newton Athletic Park Saturday. The Rovers were perched atop the standings for most of the first two months of the season but the current skid has seen them fall all the way to fourth place. Rizal Ganief scored the lone Rovers’ goal in the 80th minute off a crossing pass from Helge Neumann. The Surrey United Firefighters picked up their second win in as many weeks when they dispatched Croatia 4-2 in Vancouver Saturday. Angus Burke scored threee times while the fourth Surrey marker was crediteed as a Croatia own goal. Goalkeeper Andrew Fink stopped two penalty kicks while backstopping Surrey to the win. Delta’s Cam Hundel (in white) takes flight during a 2-1 loss to Pegasus Sunday. (Photo: GORD GOBLE)

Tim Stephens' Astral ReďŹ&#x201A;ections Aries March 21 - April 19: This week starts with hope â&#x20AC;&#x201C; perhaps too much hope, as your logic weakens in the face of fond feelings or fond fantasies. Still, enjoy the friendship, popularity and happiness Sunday/Monday. By Monday eve, retreat to plan, contemplate and rest. You might experience a philosophical difference with someone, or a snag in dealing with government or institutions Tuesday, but Wednesday holds a sparkling love attraction, or a smooth breakthrough in legal, educational or travel zones. Your energy and charisma come roaring back Thursday into Saturday morning â&#x20AC;&#x201C; start something ambitious. Taurus April 20-May 20: Focus on career, business, your ambitions and prestige relationships Sunday/ Monday. Though this is a quiet, deep month, involving big decisions in lifestyle, ďŹ nances and intimacy, lighter notes come midweek, as entertainment, popularity, friends and optimism buoy your spirits. Thursday through Saturday morning, though, seek solitude and quiet; rest, contemplate and plan. This interval might bring a new, lucky idea involving your career, government or head ofďŹ ce (or some authority) and the fruits of research, detective work. An investment or ďŹ nancial manoeuvre might be involved. Gemini May 21-June 20: This is your last week of exciting meetings, new opportunities and new horizons (perhaps relocation). Take advantage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; make contacts, travel, call, make your bid. You feel wise and loving Sunday/Monday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blend a love relationship (even worse, a secret or collusive link) with your ambitions/career. By Monday night through Wednesday your actions and reputation will be scrutinized by higher-ups: if you pass, success follows. Be cautious to Tuesday noon, then pursue your goals. You could meet a new love Wednesday. Thursday/Friday bring light romance, social joy and new hopes.

Cancer June 21-July 22: This is your last week of drudgery. Tackle all chores, get them out of the way, because several new opportunities and friendship prospects will arise Friday into late January. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want your energy and time to be free for these. Sunday/Monday feature investments, debt, large ďŹ nances, sexual urges, subconscious desires, health diagnosis and lifestyle decisions. Midweek emphasizes far travel, wisdom, learning, gentle love. It also brings splendid career/work luck and inspiration (Wednesday). More emphasis on your career, community status, Thursday/Friday. Saturday, happiness! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: This is your last week of â&#x20AC;&#x153;heavy romanceâ&#x20AC;? or deep creativity, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t waste it. (By â&#x20AC;&#x153;heavy,â&#x20AC;? I mean deep or signiďŹ cant.) Sunday/Monday bring partnership prospects, exciting meetings, new horizons, opportunities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and potential opposition, even enmity. You might be deceiving yourself about the chances of sex with someone very attractive. Be aware, astute. Midweek emphasizes sex, intimacy, large ďŹ nances, changes and commitment. True loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you might even agree to wed. Wisdom, a mellow mood, culture, rituals, far travel, learning â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and love â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ďŹ&#x201A;ow Thursday/Friday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the last week of emphasis on your home, on security, real estate, kids/parents, retirement, etc. Though this zone begins to fade now in terms of big projects, demands and burdens, it now begins to bless you with sweet results and affection, especially Wednesday. However, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try to force â&#x20AC;&#x153;home delightsâ&#x20AC;? on a partner or prospective mate Sunday. (This day and Monday are for chores: eat and dress sensibly.) Midweek brings exciting meetings, new opportunities. Thursday to Saturday feature sexual urges, ďŹ nancial luck. Friday begins a month of romance, risk and pleasure.

Dec. 16 - Dec. 22, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The fast pace of paperwork, travel, errands and calls continues â&#x20AC;&#x201C; until Friday, when a month of deeper, domestic concerns will begin. Sunday/Monday are romantic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; take a risk, collect your reward. Applies in love, and money too. But beware misunderstanding the import of a remark or message about work or health-related drugs. DONâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T buy machinery. Midweek brings many chores (tackle them) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and a possible heart-thumping development in love. You might meet a new mate, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;rediscoverâ&#x20AC;? one. Thursday/Friday emphasize cooperation, opportunities, barriers and enmity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; pick the positive. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Continue to chase money or collect possessions. Friday begins a month that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t contain the same solidity of reward â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so go all out before that day. Sunday/Monday feature home, security, foundations. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let a love of money (or possessiveness) interfere with a slowly blossoming romance or creative project. Midweek emphasizes romance, adventure, risk, self-expression, love, teaching, beauty, pleasure and creativity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but it also offers â&#x20AC;&#x153;sweet luckâ&#x20AC;? (Wednesday) in work/money. (In some cases, sudden love.) Tackle chores Thursday/ Friday. Saturday brings money opportunity. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high. Remain focused on big, important projects, people, relationships. Let the small, the details, paperwork, etc., wait until February â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but tackle the most pressing of these Sunday/ Monday. In past weeks youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve attracted attention (donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blame me if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve hidden from it). Now to Jan. 7 you radiate a subtle charm that can turn friends into lovers, competitors into friends. Remember, until June/12 you have to be the chaser in love and money (if you want luck). Home, midweek. Romance, creativity Thursday/Friday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; risk it!

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Stay quiet, restful, contemplative until Friday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; then one of the best months of your year begins. Until then, plan nearfuture actions/projects.Chase money Sunday/Monday. A sensual attraction might lure you, but deception or illusion can make you uncertain of your footing, or bring an element of gossip or â&#x20AC;&#x153;sneaking around.â&#x20AC;? Midweek brings errands, casual friends, paperwork (and newspapers) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; drive carefully, as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a bit weary. Head home Thursday/Friday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Thursday for rest, Friday for getting ready to launch. Saturday your energy rises: chase romance or grab an opportunity. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Enjoy your social life while you can â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Friday brings a month of quietude, rest and recuperation, thinking and planning. But until then, the social delights continue! Your energy and charisma draw others Sunday/Monday: start things. But shop only carefully: (mild) deception invades money matters. Midweek, chase money, pursue new clients, etc. Buy electrical, auto or computer items afternoonTuesday to 2 p.m.(PST)Wednesday.Siblings, casual friends, trips, calls, visits, news, errands and paperwork ďŹ ll Thursday/Friday. Friendship might turn to romance. Home, rest, Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Remain ambitious. Put your best self forward for bosses, parents, other VIPs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they will favour you now to early January. Be restful, quiet, contemplate and plan, Sunday/Monday. A parent or child might do you a favour â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or argue. Your energy and magnetism rise nicely midweek â&#x20AC;&#x201C; be bold, see and be seen, ask favours, start projects and relationships (before 2:30 p.m. Wednesday). Your money luck rises briefly Thursday/Friday. Avoid engine/electronic/computer purchases Thursday afternoon. Friday begins a month of social delights, flirtations, wish fulfillment and optimism! timstephens@shaw.ca â&#x20AC;˘ Reading: 604-886-4808

AUTOMOTIVE Fine Lines

MGTC took monotony out of driving in North America

It took a brave person to drive an MG TC back in the 1940s. Actually, brave and not altogether sane, some would say. But those hearty pioneers figuratively paved the way for the sports-car revolution that would eventually sweep the land, providing an alternative to Detroit’s overstuffed automotive appliances. The TC was a hard-riding relic that squatted so low to the ground it could barely be spotted in the rear-view mirrors of most other cars. It completely broke with the convention that dictated how an automobile should look and feel and how many people it should carry. But that was its charm. Although designed before the Second World War, the TC made its debut in September 1945, six years after the original MG (Morris Garages) was built. The TC was derived from a line of twoseat sports cars that actually dated back to 1930.

Appreciating the MGTC required some perspective. To owners of “normal” cars, it was slow, impractical and uncomfortable. To bicycle riders, it was likely seen as somewhat of a lateral move. Other than a modest increases in engine displacement and body size, very little about the post-war

version changed from year to year. Those very few early TC diehards, mostly military

personnel who brought them home from England, must have occasionally questioned their

choice in automobiles. As cute as they were, and as enjoyable as they might have been to drive, the TC was completely out of step with the Fords, Chevrolets and Plymouths that held domain over the nation’s highways. Next to these full-size sedans, the spunky little Brit looked like a spindly bug ready to be flattened. The TC’s interior was equally odd, including the fact that the steering wheel on every one of the 10,000 or so made (including 2,000 that were exported to North America) was situated on what would normally be the passengerside of the car. A large tachometer encased in the walnut dash faced the driver from behind a fourspoke wooden steering wheel, while a speedometer of equal size was installed directly in front of the passenger cushion.

Fine Lines

Get a grip this year: winter tires are not enough

Early MGTC owners banded together for parts, advice, camaraderie

Scraping snow and ice off your car each morning, driving in the dark, and sitting in traffic – it’s no surprise that so many Canadians dread driving in the winter. While snow tires can help to increase traction, they are only one weapon in your driving arsenal against Old Man Winter. Dave Minor, a vice president with TD Insurance, provides his list of necessary tools to have on hand while driving in the snow this winter: Windshield washer fluid and winter wiper blades – On a snowy or slushy day,

what moves you

it’s easy to use up a few litres of fluid trying to keep your windshield clear and visibility high. Keep some extra fluid in the car in case you run out while on the road. Good wiper blades prevent snow and ice from building up and affecting their performance. Fuel up – It’s never a good idea to let your gas or diesel run low. Not only could you be left stranded, but it can also do serious harm to your car. A full tank of gas will minimize condensation, and prevent the gas line from freezing. Emergency kit – You never know what

Mother Nature may throw your way, so it’s important to be prepared. Have an emergency kit in your vehicle, including a snow shovel and brush, booster cables, candle and matches, blanket and cat litter (for traction), just in case. Insurance – Speak to your insurance provider to be sure you have the proper coverage, and ask if your provider offers roadside assistance. Snow on the roads means you should expect the unexpected, so make sure there are no surprises if you have to make a claim. News Canada

trunk or a decent heater. As well, anyone who was off kilter enough to befriend a TC was forced to personally undertake all of the maintenance and service chores, since, in those early years, there were no dealers to make repairs. They wouldn’t appear until 1948. Waiting for spare parts to arrive from the MG factory in Abingdon-on-Thames, England, could leave TCs and their frustrated owners out of action for weeks or sometimes months. Still, the TC’s loyal following would not be dissuaded. When running right, the plucky machine was an absolute joy to drive. Its 54horsepower 1,250 cubic-centimetre (1.25-litre) cam-in-block four-cylinder engine was not especially speedy (a dash to 60 mph (96 km/h) took a long and lazy 23 seconds), but the car’s low centre of gravity made it feel fast and allowed it to out-corner just about anything else on the road, despite skinny little bicycle-style 19-inchwire-wheel-mounted rubber. The four-speed transmission also helped to make the driving experience more enjoyable. For camaraderie as well as self-preservation, loyal TC owners banded together in clubs to trade advice, spare parts and the occasional horror story (TCs were fragile pieces, after all). Owners learned, for example, that the car’s imprecise handling tendencies could be significantly improved by adding an aftermarket steering kit. Likewise, an add-on supercharger would increase top speed to around 160 km/h, which was about 40 km/h better than stock. As word spread about this wondrous machine, the racing fraternity found the TC to be an inexpensive competition car. It wasn’t long before many were buzzing the tracks from upstate New York to Southern California. Future driving stars, such as Phil Hill, who would become Formula One champion in 1961, and Cobra sports car creator Carroll Shelby, found early success racing TCs. Even Henry Ford’s son, Edsel, became a TC enthusiast. When TC owners desired more performance – or some performance, rather – MG obliged with the similar looking TD in 1949, followed by the TF in 1953. By that time, other British and European marques such as Jaguar, Porsche, Alfa Romeo, Austin-Healey and Triumph had joined the fray. All would provide the same kick-in-the-pants thrills and turn driving into so much more than a chore. Malcolm Gunn is a feature writer with Wheelbase Media.

Bruce McLaren and his teammate Denis Hulme won all 11 1969 Can-Am races driving McLaren-built cars. ___________ What’s up, auto doc? To save interior space, many vehicles (mostly high-riding rides such as sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks) have spare tires located beneath the load floor (outside). In this case, out of sight does not mean out of mind. After a crummy winter laced

with road salt, the attaching hardware for the spare can become corroded, sometimes to the point where you might not be able to pry it from the vehicle. So, before that happens, put on your grubby clothes, crawl under the vehicle and soak the bolt threads with penetrating oil. You don’t want to risk breaking off the bolts, so let the oil do its job for a couple of hours before attempting to loosen things up. Once all apart, clean up everything the best you can and apply an anti-seize compound to the threads. Before reassembling, check the spare tire for the proper air pressure, damage and a rusty rim, which, depending on the severity, might need to be replaced. Share your tips with the Auto Doc at www. shiftweekly.com using the contact form. ___________

Casino proposal goes to public hearing Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

Marvin Hunt

As supporters and opponents packed a crowded council chamber, Surrey council voted 8-1 to move forward with the gaming application for a proposed casino and entertainment complex in South Surrey. It was the last step before the public would be allowed to share their

thoughts on the project with council directly, which will come in the form of a public hearing to be held on Jan. 14 in the New Year. Terry McNiece, president of the South Surrey Ratepayers Association, said council’s decision to move forward with the application to a public hearing was not a surprise. He said the next step is planning on what to say at the public hearing. Coun. Marvin Hunt, the lone

councillor who voted against the application, said he’s ready to hear from the public about the proposed project, despite voting against the motion to move forward with the gaming application. When asked why he voted the way he did, Hunt said it wasn’t because he was opposed to allowing the public to have their input, but that he was opposed to the casino itself. “The generality is that you always

vote for the public hearing but the reason I voted against it is simply that I am continuing a voting pattern I have in that I think there is enough gaming around for everyone,” he said. “By the same token, I wouldn’t be reading a lot into the other council members voting for that because it was a vote to hear from the public and that was a positive thing.” see GATEWAY › page 3

Construction mishap on Maple Street

Torch work at build site sparks fire that caused one worker to jump from second floor Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

A 32-year-old man is recovering from burns and a broken arm following a blaze that broke out at a house under construction in White Rock Wednesday morning. At around 9:30 a.m., White Rock Fire Rescue received a call about a house on fire on Maple Street. When crews arrived at the scene, they found a house that had been under construction on fire and one man injured on the ground in front of it. According to White Rock Deputy Fire Chief Bob Schlase, the fire was the result of some torch work being done by crews working on the second floor of the house. “(One worker) was working on an elevated roof that was overtop of a garage,” said Schlase. “So he was up there working with a torch and they had a flashover from some material there.” Schlase said the worker then jumped from

Tanya Gabara, community liaison for Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Limited, said they were eager to move forward. “We were happy to hear the city say how important it was for everybody’s opinion to be heard and to move forward to this public information meeting,” said Gabara. As for the roughly 200 or so people who came out to city hall wearing T-shirts showing support for Gateway, Gabara said they comprised supporters, employees and friends of Gateway. “The level of support that came out was amazing,” she said, adding that Gateway had chartered buses for supporters wanting to attend. “We had several hundred people coming out so we felt this would be a good way to ensure that everybody who wanted to come got there and was able to find space.” cpoon@thenownewspaper.com

No reason to keep ‘horrific’ assault secret, says Urban Mission’s Jonquil Hallgate

Beaten woman, 43, found partially clothed in Whalley parking lot Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

A Whalley woman continues to fight for her life in hospital as questions are being raised why her vicious beating has received less attention than other crimes in more affluent Surrey neighbourhoods. Surrey Mounties continue to investigate the Dec. 2 beating of a 43-year-old woman who was found partially clothed and falling in and out of consciousness in a Whalley parking lot. A passerby called police after finding her in the 13500-block of 106th Avenue, shortly after noon that Sunday. She remains in critical condition. News reports indicate she’d been chained to a tree and that one of her eyes had been

scratched out over a drug debt. Police said they did not find her chained up. “That’s what somebody said, but not us,” Cpl. Bert Paquet said. “It’s safe to say she suffered lifethreatening injuries, including facial injuries and fractures. There’s a lot of those details we can’t get into.” Paquet said the Surrey RCMP has “several dedicated officers” on the case but they have not yet identified a suspect. Police didn’t discuss the assault publicly until two days after the victim – whose name has not been released – had been found. “We had confirmed from the early stages that the greater public was not at risk in this case,” Paquet offered. “We have no reason to believe the greater public is at risk.” The neighbourhood where the assault took place is one of the roughest and most socially troubled areas in the Lower Mainland. Jonquil Hallgate, who operates the Surrey Urban Mission not far from where

the woman was found, questioned why this “horrific” case received so little public attention compared to a hit-and-run crash in South Surrey where two joggers were injured. “What makes that more newsworthy?” she asked. “Why is this not public?” Hallgate said she suspects the Whalley beating victim didn’t draw similar attention because her story didn’t involve “middle-class women doing what middleclass women do.” “That’s my perception,” she said. “If it was anybody else, there’d be a huge media outcry.” Chief Supt. Bill Fordy, in charge of the Surrey RCMP, said both crimes are being taken seriously. “Everybody matters,” he said. “No one’s life is more important than somebody else’s life.” Police ask witnesses or anyone with information in connection with the woman’s assault in Whalley to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502. tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

Young entrepreneur noticed nationally Surrey’s Michael Cheng selected for program that fosters future leaders

Cookie. The concept is to provide small businesses with the means to have a professional website by putting the responsibility of maintenance and hosting on Witty Cookie rather than the business in question. “Traditionally the web design industry has been a buy and sell process. You buy a design, you get the website and the relationship is over,” said Cheng. “So what we did was break it down into small monthly payments and there’s no setup fees for small business owners. The service plans start at $20 a month, and that includes design, hosting and their presence is pretty much taken care of.” As for his entrepreneurial role model, Apple founder Steve Jobs, Cheng isn’t hoping to follow in his footsteps – he wants to be his own man – but greatly admires everything Jobs did during his time on this planet. “He really never listened to anyone and was so strong in his vision that every time somebody told him he was doing the wrong thing and going in the wrong direction he just followed through and it worked out tremendously,” said Cheng. “Hopefully I’ll be the first Michael Cheng.”

Michael Cheng’s entrepreneurial spirit has been noticed on a national stage.

Delta staff raise $70K for the United Way Delta’s municipal employees have raised nearly $70,000 in donations for the United Way, besting last year’s effort by more than $9,000. “I am continually overwhelmed by the generosity of Delta staff,” Mayor Lois Jackson said. Proceeds will support preventionbased initiatives that tackle such issues as poverty, bullying and seniors’ isolation. It’s the seventh consecutive year Delta’s municipal employees have exceeded their fundraising goal. Meanwhile, the Surrey RCMP launched a campaign Wednesday asking people to help fill a patrol car with non-perishable food donations for the Surrey Food Bank. The “Pack the Police Car” campaign will run for 12 days, at the Save-On Foods stores in South Surrey and on King George Boulevard in Newton, and Price Smart Foods on Fraser Highway in Fleetwood. “We hope that the citizens of Surrey give generously and help us pack our police cars full of healthy meals to help the many families in need at this time of the year,” said Insp.

Council ‘renews’ smoking policy on hospital grounds Jacob Zinn

Surrey city council has approved an amendment to the city’s anti-smoking bylaw that will ban smoking on hospital grounds except in designated smoking areas. The decision made Monday means smokers will no longer be allowed to light up at Surrey Memorial Hospital and the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre – not that they were allowed before. The bylaw prohibits smoking within 7.5 metres of any opening to a building, but Fraser Health found that many people ignored the no-smoking signs. “There’s obviously been issues around our ability to enforce smoke-free policies here and this is a widespread problem,” said Dr. Helena Swinkels, a medical health officer with Fraser Health. “There have been complaints on and off for a number of years from patients and from visitors that they’re unhappy to walk through clouds of secondhand smoke to access health-care facilities.” Smoking will not be permitted in the

parking lot or open areas on hospital grounds, even if they are 7.5 metres away from open windows and doors. Anyone found in violation of the bylaw will be subject to a $100 fine. Smoking would only be allowed in designated smoking areas – primarily for patients who, for instance, smoke medicinal marijuana to treat their illnesses – but Swinkels said Fraser Health is looking into whether or not those areas are needed. “Currently, we don’t have any of those smoking areas,” she said. “We haven’t taken that decision as of yet as to whether those will be necessary.” Swinkels said nearby hospitals have not expressed an interest in passing a similar ban, but said the authority is open to working with other hospitals. “This was an important issue for the City of Surrey and that’s the municipality we’re working with right now,” she said. “Fraser Health is using this as an opportunity to really renew and refresh our smoke-free policy.” jacobzinn@gmail.com

Sources food bank off to slow start for holiday season Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

While generally a time of high traffic and donations at food banks and non-profits the world over, the holiday season has been off to something of a slow start for the Sources White Rock/South Surrey Food Bank. That’s according to Jaye Murray, the food bank’s operations and services co-ordinator. “We’re a little behind this year just in money and donations,” she said. The trouble, said Murray, was that there was some confusion about which food bank to donate to for those living in White Rock and South Surrey. “We’re having a bit of a problem here because food banks have boundaries,” said Murray. “People think we’re just White Rock, but we’re also South Surrey.” As such, Murray said some may donate to Surrey’s food bank while thinking it would be going to those in South Surrey. “Most people, when they want to donate, they want to donate to their local community but it gets confusing,” said

Murray, noting that anything south of 40th Avenue is considered South Surrey when it comes to food banks. While donations are slightly picking up, Murray is still concerned with how this holiday season will affect the coming year. “During the holidays we receive 60 per cent of the food we distribute throughout the year,” she said. “Usually what we bring in December lasts through to July.” To donate to Sources, go to sourcesbc.ca, call 604-531-8168 or drop off food at any Sources food bin located at grocery stores in White Rock or South Surrey. “We’re extremely appreciative of all the donations we receive and of the community,” said Murray. “We are funded by the community, we don’t receive any government support.” Murray also noted they do not solicit door-to-door, as she’s heard of some people going around in the area attempting to collect funds in the food bank’s name. “We’ve had a few phone calls of people going door-to-door soliciting funds for the food bank and that is not us,” she said.

Depending on sin taxes is lose-lose ViewFrom TheCheap Seats Michael Booth

I

t’s a sin to tell a lie. Yeah, I know lies are immoral, but at least they’re cheap. By my count, bearing false witness and adultery are a few of the only sins left that the government hasn’t found a way to tax. Once upon a time, governments relied on industry, property, sales and income taxes to cover their expenses. Lots of industry equaled lots of jobs, which equaled lots of revenue for the assorted levels of government. (I’m sure an economist or six will find such a formula simplistic, but that’s basically how it works.) Governments have also supplemented their honest income with so-called sin taxes, extra levies applied to vices like tobacco and alcohol. Now we are running out of smokers and since we don’t drink nearly enough booze to make up the difference, governments have turned to other versions of the sin tax to keep their deficit

numbers from spiralling out of control. Gasoline is the new sin in our eco-conscious society and, as a result, the high price of dead dinosaur juice is rooted almost as much in taxes as it is in researching, drilling, transporting and refining the petroleum. The problem with relying on gasoline as a source of tax revenue is it carries with it a double burden. On the one hand, the government needs people driving for them to keep paying the gas tax. But to keep cars on the road and credit cards whisking through the scanners at gas stations, money must be spent on infrastructure to maintain the road system. Unfortunately, the roads in the Lower Mainland are already jammed, leaving the government facing a twin terror in the form of infrastructure for drivers and expanding the current transit system. The latest miracle cure the politicians are flocking to is tolling new and existing bridges. I have no problem with the concept of putting tolls on bridges – if you use it, you should help pay for it. But make sure the cost of the tolls is not prohibitive. A loonie to cross? Fair

enough. But instead we have bridge tolls set at more than $3 – roughly the cost of a one-zone bus ticket. It’s like a warped attempt by the government to force people to use an inefficient transit system by penalizing them for driving their cars. Sorry, that’s out of line. Having bridge tolls equal to transit fares isn’t the official policy; it’s just a happy coincidence, right? ’Cause it would be wrong to tax people for building a transit system and then fine them for not using it. I know of one fellow who calculated that with his family’s usual commuting and travel schedules, they would be spending $7,000 more each year just to pay for tolls on the new Port Mann Bridge. He’s solving the problem by building a new home in Coquitlam. Sorry Metro Vancouver, that doesn’t add up to four less vehicles off the road and four more butts on bus seats.

Traffic will still suck, transit will still be inefficient for the average suburbanite, and he and his family will have $7,000 more in their jeans and not servicing a mountain of government debt. Another sin targeted by the folks in the pinstriped suits has been around almost as long as the dinosaurs. Gambling is an easy mark for governments because it’s like free money. The house gets its cut, the government gets a taste and every once in a while, a taxpayer will come out ahead after an evening at the casino. It started with bingo games in church basements, which begat a lottery in the 1970s to help fund the Montreal Olympics. Lotteries expanded from single tickets offering a $250,000 prize every week into 6/49 with its enticing growing jackpot, which in turn spawned twice weekly draws plus scratch-and-win tickets plus Lotto Max, plus,

plus, plus.... The revenues from these games initially paid for community initiatives, but it wasn’t long before the governments were dipping their fingers into that as well, leaving service organizations and other special interest societies to start their own lotto games to make up the gap. The government kept pace by allowing casinos to be built to increase the gambling dollars flowing in. Now casinos are like Starbucks – it seems like there’s one on every corner. We are now so dependent on casino and gambling revenue that debates concerning new gaming palaces brush aside concerns like addiction and social ills and instead focus on how much money the new slot jockey emporium will generate. The proposed new casino project in South Surrey is estimated to be capable of

producing more than $3 million dollars a year for the City of Surrey. Sounds impressive – except sin taxes are not new money being injected into the economy. It’s recycled cash skimmed off the population after they have already paid their income taxes. It may fill the government coffers, but it certainly doesn’t help the economy. The current government dependence on sin taxes is a lose-lose situation. Having a population that relies on people operating slot machines and dealing cards is no replacement for skilled tradespeople working at jobs that actually produce marketable products. You know, things that actually generate new revenue and contribute to the real economy. Michael Booth can be reached at mbooth@ thenownewspaper.com

Do you have somebody you would like to thank? Or maybe something you want to get off your chest? Send your rose or rotten tomato to edit@thenownewspaper.com. Please keep submissions under 50 words. Watch for Roses and Rotten Tomatoes in the Thursday issue of the now

My family and I would like to send a huge bouquet of roses to the family who paid our bill at the Swiss Chalet in Surrey on Dec. 8. It was a very unexpected surprise. Your kindness and generosity was much appreciated. We will be sure to pay it forward in the very near future. Thank you. After our Grey Cup party, one of my guests responsibly took a cab home and left his vehicle on the street. My neighbour didn’t like that his truck was left on “their” side of the street, so they got it ticketed for being closer than three metres to their driveway before he could pick it up the next day. Nice neighbours, huh? A recycling truck full of rotten tomatoes to the youth who are desecrating beautiful holly trees in Royal Kwantlen Park. They have made a muddy mess cutting down blackberry bushes and these beautiful holly trees. Who would authorize such an activity? And when is Surrey parks going to pick up the mess?

Dozens of spectacular roses to the Delta Police Pipe and Drum band that gave us all chills when they accompanied Paul McCartney for their rendition of “Mull of Kintyre” at the Paul McCartney concert Nov 25. Congrats, you made us all very proud. A huge bouquet of roses to the woman who found my cellphone with credit cards, ID and money in the Cloverdale IGA parking lot. Thank you! Rotten tomatoes to the driver who yelled at my daughter and I for walking on the side of the road (no sidewalk). He says he was blinded by the lights of the oncoming car and if we had pointed our flashlights toward him, he might not have hit us. Rotten tomatoes to the complainers in our trailer park who complain and gossip about everything and everyone. If you detest it here, move. We all follow rules so why don’t you learn to be grateful and get along with your neighbours – you will one day need them.

Rotten tomatoes to Grandview Corners for showing a lack of Christmas spirit in its attempt at decorating for the season. Next to Morgan Crossing’s great showing, it looks like you’re just going through the motions. Create an environment where we want to spend more time and, maybe, more money. A hospital full of red roses to Fraser Health and thank you for the break in the parking fees. Rotten tomatoes to McDonald’s in North Surrey for kicking out innocent teens just for eating and playing cards. Rotten tomatoes to the loud obnoxious rednecks in the lounge at the South Surrey restaurant Saturday night. And more tomatoes to the staff – after I complained about them being overserved and after moving tables, the waitress brought them another round of drinks. Nice. Roses to the fancy new lounge in Cloverdale. Good value.

If cellphones distract, what about giant TVs?

The Editor, In recent years, our leaders have instructed us to move toward hands-free devices in our cars so that we are not distracted while driving. Given the amount of cellphone and mobile device use I see while commuting throughout the day, I would say this law is largely ignored. The police have set up road checks to catch those people who continue to use their cellphones while driving. Those same police issue tickets to those who get caught in the act. Are those same police officers going to be the ones attending all the of the rearend collisions at the entrance to the new Port Mann Bridge, caused by those people watching the incredibly large TV installed right before the bridge? Is that not just as much of a distraction as a hand-held device? Maybe it is a solution to help us tolerate the increased wait times we will have to endure caused by all of the merging traffic taking place right before the bridge. ICBC, get ready for an increase in low-velocity rear-end collision claims on Highway 1 westbound. Hopefully they show the Canucks games on the big screen or, better yet, traffic reports.

Great care at SMH The Editor, My wife recently required treatment in the Surrey Memorial Hospital emergency room and was referred to the Jim Pattison Centre due to flooding. I want to commend the staff for their kind, professional and respectful treatment in spite of the disruption in facilities. We appreciate their work ethic even in the face of their own hardship and are thankful for how they treated our family. Jagdev S. Jatana, Surrey

Three pet peeves The Editor, I have three pet peeves I’d like to share. The first is those in grocery stores who insist on leaving their food cart in the middle of an aisle and go off looking for something, blocking everyone else. The second is people who talk so loud on their cellphone that the whole restaurant can hear every word. The third is drivers who change lanes or turn corners without using their signals. I feel better getting those off my chest.

Fundraiser in White Rock

Season’s beatings at charity show Jacob Zinn

Now contributor Twitter @jacobzinn

All Star Wrestling is laying the smackdown on giftless Christmases! On Tuesday evening (Dec. 18), White Rock Elks Lodge will host ASW’s third annual Bodyslams for Toys event, a benefit wrestling show that collects toys and distributes them to local charity shops. This year, the wrestling company is accepting packaged, unopened toys worth $10 or more as admission for adults to the event. “We encourage people to bring every kid (they) know – they’re free to get in – and bring as many toys as you want if you’re feeling charitable,” said Bryon Walters, also known as Joe Bruiser, one half of the tag team champions The Breakers. The toys will be split between the Elks Lodge’s annual children’s Christmas party and the White Rock Salvation Army. The hall fits up to 150 people – the ASW typically performs before crowds of up to 500 – but Walters is hopeful the smaller crowd will be able to spread the same amount of holiday cheer. “I’m hoping it’s a success because we’ve had up to six or seven huge boxes, just filled to the top overflowing with toys, in the past,” he said. The wrestling card includes a 20man over-the-top-rope battle royale, a cruiserweight championship bout and a match for the tag-team titles. The Breakers will be defending their belts against an unusual opponent. “We’ll be taking on the Grappling Gorilla, which is a wrestling gorilla – this is more for the kids,” said Walters. “He wears a complete gorilla suit with wrestling head gear – the things that keep your ears from getting cauliflowered – and a pair of Hawaiian shorts on.” The charity show is ASW’s second wrestling event at Elks Lodge since the company made its White Rock debut

in October. “I always wanted to bring wrestling to White Rock because it’s never been in all the years – all through the ’50s and ’60s and ’70s, they never had it,” said Walters. Tuesday’s event is family friendly – “No

swearing or beating guys’ heads in with baseball bats” – so parents don’t have to worry about any in-ring bloodbaths or explicit language. Just some clean jokes and slapstick fights. “There’s going to be some heavy slams

and heavy hits, but it’s mostly for fun otherwise. It’s not going to be anything violent.” After the show, the wrestlers will hold a party upstairs in the lounge for anyone who wants to meet the wrestlers or have a cheap drink. And in early 2013, ASW will host its annual Wrestling for Hunger event, which gathers non-perishable food donations for local food banks. The bell sounds at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday at Elks Lodge, located at 1469 George St. For more information, call 604-710-0872 or visit aswcanada.com.

ARTS & LIFE On stage at Surrey Arts Centre

One game dame: Panto still perfect for performer, 75 Tom Zillich

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

During the fall months each year, Alan Cedargreen can be found telling bad jokes, singing silly songs and prancing around a cold rehearsal hall or warm stage, with or without a wig. It’s been his annual ritual for about a quarter century and, at age 75, the Surrey resident is still thrilled playing the dame in pantomimes brought to the stage by director/writer Ellie King and Royal Canadian Theatre Company. This season, he’s witty Kitty Crusoe in Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates, a family-friendly adventure at Surrey Arts Centre from Dec. 20 to Jan. 6 (for details, call 604-5015566 or visit www.rctheatreco. com). Cedargreen has been King’s go-to dame in her pantos since the early 1990s, save for a couple shows over the years. “He just gets it,” King told the Now. “The dame is a very difficult role to play. It’s not a drag act, it’s a man in a dress, and there’s a big

difference. The man in the dress can make jokes about both males and females equally, and Alan somehow manages to walk that line.” Cedargreen’s dame is a particularly nice one, she added. “There seems to be two kinds of dames: there’s the motherly, nice, sweet and friendly, almost childlike dame, and then there’s the fierce, man-hungry, booze-guzzling, out-of-left-field kind of dame. Alan is the nice one, and he has a particular rapport with kids, he really does. The kids just love him, and the adults love him, too.” Up until age 45 or so, Cedargreen couldn’t stand to speak publicly. “Something in me was let loose around 25 years ago,” he said during a break from rehearsal Sunday at Newton Cultural Centre. “Not until I was 50 or so did I start playing the dame in these pantos on a regular basis – it just came to life for me. I don’t know where that came from.” Today, no members of Cedargreen’s family play a part

in the Royal Canadian pantos – they all just accept he’s a busy man in the weeks before and after Christmas. Growing up in Britain, his family made a tradition of seeing a panto on Boxing Day. The dame was always played slapstick by a comedian of note – cream pies in the face, outrageous costumes, funny stuff. It’s a tradition Cedargreen warmly embraces, especially for kids in the crowd. “It’s such a great way to spend Christmas, it really is,” he said.

“It reminds me of when I was a child, so to be able to spread a bit of Christmas cheer, it’s a good feeling.” Such acting is also a good way to stay fit, he added. “This helps!” he said with a laugh. “It’s about three months of rehearsals and show dates, and it’s pretty physical. It’s a lot of energy, especially when you go on stage – the adrenaline shoots up and I feel like a kid up there. And then I go home and crawl up the stairs and my wife just laughs at me. And

I overact, so everything is big and it does drain you a bit. I just don’t feel that on stage, that’s all.” The stage for Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates will be populated by more than 40 performers – cannibals, fire demons, cruise ship captains and others, plus a volcano, hula dancing and tropical colours. Describing it all, Cedargreen smiled. “This is going to be a good one,” he said. Later, King said she’s amazed by how Cedargreen is still able to “skip around the stage like a twoyear-old.… I don’t know many more years he’ll be dame-ing, to be honest, but he’s a bit of an icon in a small way. I don’t think he’s ready to retire or anything, but when he does, it will be a sad day for panto.” tzillich@thenownewspaper.com

New city council chamber to double as performance space Jacob Zinn

Now contributor Twitter @jacobzinn

By next fall, Surrey artists will have another venue to perform in: the new council chambers. The chambers at the new city hall, on track for completion by September 2013, will double as a live performance space, allowing musicians, actors and the like a 200-seat space to hone their crafts. “It tied into our mayor and council’s vision to create the new city hall as a focal point in our City Centre area,” said Laurie Cavan, general manager of the city’s Parks, Recreation and Culture department. “When we took that as their vision, we looked at how can we make the city hall more accessible and be of value as an asset to the community.” The city looked at the arts community and discovered a need for more places to stage live events in Surrey. “Performing arts space is something in really high demand,” she said. “Our current arts centre is at capacity most of the time, so when we spoke with the arts community, they

were really excited about this opportunity.” While council meetings are still the venue’s priority, Cavan said it makes sense to make the chambers a multi-purpose space within city hall. “When you think of it, council meets every two weeks, so there is an opportunity in between to utilize it for other community uses,” she said. The venue – much smaller than the 1,600-seat performing arts centre planned for Surrey’s downtown core – could host small jazz concerts, theatre performances, children’s concerts and even educational presentations and lectures. “You might not have a full symphony, but you could have a small ensemble,” she said. Cavan said this is the first venue the city knows of to be built as a council chamber first and a performing arts venue second. The council chambers in Port Moody hosts live arts, but their chamber is built the other way around – as a performance venue first and council chambers second. “Some cities have tried to do it, but I think ours is the most unique design of any other city we’ve been able to source,” she said.

othing compares to the aroma of baked Christmas goodies when coming in from the cold winter weather. Our olfactory sensations (our sense of smell) contribute up to 80 per cent to our sense of taste, and thus is a very important part of our ability to recognize and enjoy flavour. The art of holiday baking is a regular activity in many households this time of the year, and some baking tips may be helpful to you. Flaky pie dough is a pastry that has a mixture of shortening and/or butter that is “cut in,” so that there are small chunks still left in the finished product. This aids in creating steam pockets within the crust, which help with the leavening process and resulting in the flaky texture. It is best to keep pie pastry as cold as possible while mixing and rolling to prevent melting the butter and shortening pieces prematurely. The best way of doing this is to first focus on your ingredients. Make sure you are using ice water instead of cold water, and frozen butter grated into the flour mixture is ideal. The frozen butter particles then are already the required size from the grater and will not suffer from the warm friction of too much mixing or “cutting” in. Secondly, try not to touch the dough with your hands too much, as the warmth from them will melt the butter.

wrap and place it in the refrigerator until thoroughly chilled. Remove and proceed with rolling, ideally on a chilled marble surface. Cookies and quick breads are also very popular, and they both rely on baking soda and/or baking powder to rise. Baking soda and baking powder are considered chemical leaveners. Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate and it requires liquid and an acid to make a gaseous reaction. It is usually added to recipes that have a naturally occurring acid in the ingredients, such as buttermilk, yogurt, sour cream, honey, molasses and fruits. On the other hand, baking powder is a complete leavener, as it only requires liquid for it to react in the same manner. The reason for this is it contains a mixture of baking soda and the balanced amount of acid, along with starch, to help prevent lumping. This is why you will see some recipes that call for baking powder and others with baking powder and/or baking soda. A good comparison of this would be a pancake recipe compared to a buttermilk pancake recipe. Whatever desserts you choose to celebrate with, I wish you all the best of health and happiness this holiday season. Dear Chef Dez, Could you please tell me how I can make self-rising flour by myself? Kimie T., Maple Ridge Dear Kimie, Yes, by all means. Mix together one cup of flour with one and a half teaspoons of baking powder, and half a teaspoon of salt. Send your food/cooking questions to dez@ chefdez.com.

Bell rings again with VSO sing-alongs, seasonal stories Tom Zillich

Gordon Gerrard considers himself a “big sucker” for Christmas, so he’s a fitting choice to conduct the “A Traditional Christmas” concerts staged by Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Gordon Gerrard Gerrard, who is only a few months on the job as the VSO’s new assistant conductor, makes his Surrey debut Sunday, Dec. 16 during a pair of concerts, as part of a 15-date tour of the region this month. “I love Christmas, so I’m pretty excited about this whole series, these concerts,” said the Manitoba-raised Gerrard, 35. For yet another season, Christopher Gaze hosts the VSO’s Christmas concert series, with UBC Opera Ensemble and EnChor choirs also on stage. From year to year, the format of the

We know people want to do some sing-along carols, of course.…

Vancouver Symphony Orchestra’s popular “A Traditional Christmas” concert returns to Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre for two performances on Sunday, Dec. 16. Christopher Gaze, soon after I started on the job, and decided what the program would look like this year,” Gerrard explained. “We certainly try to vary the music, and

concerts remains relatively unchanged, with a heartwarming mix of music and Gaze’s stories. “We sat down in September with

Christopher’s spoken thing also varies, but it’s basically done the same way each year – we know people want to do some singalong carols, of course, and we usually have the choir and some soloists who come from the opera program at UBC.” Gerrard said the sing-along songs this year include “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” “First Noel,” “Joy to the World” and, as always, a concert-closing version of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” The VSO’s concert series kicks off tonight (Thursday, Dec. 13) at St. Andrew’s-Wesley church in Vancouver and ends Dec. 23 in Maple Ridge. Show times this Sunday at the Bell are 4 and 7:30 p.m. For tickets and series info, call 604-876-3434 or visit www. vancouversymphony.ca. tzillich@thenownewspaper.com

For everyone, a strong immune system is the foundation for a long and happy life — pets too. Unfortunately, your cat doesn’t have nine lives, and your dog ages more than seven years to your one. Health-conscious people want the same longevity and quality of life for their four-legged family members. Pet nutrition is the cornerstone to health and is the number one variable controlled by their owners. The Bone & Biscuit Co. prides themselves on offering healthy alternatives to suit any budget. Established in 2003, the Bone & Biscuit’s founder, Lee Drescher, raised his dogs with a holistic approach and observed a gap in the marketplace for high-quality healthy food and natural pet care products. Locally owned and operated, Cloverdale is the 13th store in the franchise. Wide-ranging products include: raw natural food, high-quality dry food, in-house baked goods, clothes/accessories, a comprehensive variety of boutique toys, and general care items to keep your pet healthy and satisfied. Also, monthly holistic care seminars (free) with topics from vaccinations, raw diet benefits, functional medicine, and more. “We strive to go beyond our customer’s expectations,” says Andrea Peters, owner/manager. “We cater to pets with allergy problems and educate consumers on the natural alternatives to conventional and medicinal care; Good health starts from within.”

Making informed decisions with proper dietary choices is essential to your pet’s vitality and wellness. The Bone & Biscuit’s knowledgeable and friendly staff are equipped to provide solutions and answers concerning: raw and dry foods, fresh and bulk meat and bones, supplements, remedies, grooming products, and budget and menu planning to name a few. “Preventative care starts the minute you welcome a new pet into your home,”says Peters. “I have over 12 years of experience feeding a raw diet and have worked very closely with holistic vet clinics to solve a multitude of health issues in my five dogs. I have seen the benefits of raw diets in pets for years and believe this experience is what makes the difference in our service.” Bone & Biscuit stocks many BC products, raw food made in Langley and Cranbrook for example, items without fillers, corn, wheat or soy, plus many grain-free options for both food and treats (baked in Kelowna, each cookie is hand-made from quality ingredients). “We offer natural foods at every price point,” confirms Peters. “We also price check our product regularly to ensure we are at or below competitive stores.” Take advantage of the Bone & Biscuit Bucks, a point for every dollar spent gets you 10% off your next purchase when you redeem 500; a frequent buyer program too, mainly on dry foods: buy 10, the 11th is free.

inter officially begins Dec. 21. That will be the day with the fewest daylight hours. Dark, dark, dark. Ah, but we have come a long way in the history of the human race and can artificially light up the dark days. We know how. It doesn’t always have to be high-tech light with fibre optics and halogen light bulbs. We have the knowledge of how to make lanterns and such. Semiahmoo Arts is offering two events for this Winter Solstice (the short daylight days): Winter Solstice Lantern Making Workshop this Saturday, Dec. 15 and Winter Solstice Celebration of Light on Saturday, Dec. 22. The workshop on the 15th is family-friendly, costs $15 per person and all the basic supplies are included. The tools, supplies (bring your own extra decorations like glitter, feathers, etc.) and instructions await your arrival at the event, from noon to 4 p.m. at Semiahmoo Arts, 14600 North Bluff Rd., White Rock. Children 10 and under must have adult companion. Whether you make a lantern or not, you can still join in the Winter Solstice Celebration of Light, held from 5 to 7 p.m. Lots of lanterns will guide your path from the Semiahmoo Arts studio in Centennial Park to the wooded area next to the building. Entertainment along the way includes melodies from Soul of the World Community Choir, dancing from XBa DanceCo and a fire-spinning performance by Vancouver Fire Collective. Afterward, warm up at the arts studio with warm beverages and tasty treats. Those who attended the lantern-making workshops will be able to light their lanterns to join in

The 39 Steps, a comedy based on the Alfred Hitchcock film, is part of the Arts Club’s play series at Surrey Arts Centre. A limited-time “flex pass” deal for tickets ends Dec. 23. the celebration. Additional lanterns will be available for purchase at Semiahmoo Arts (call 604-536-8333 for more details). Still wanting a Christmas concert? First Capital Barbershop Chorus member Leigh Anderson would like the choir’s annual Christmas concert added to the list I had last week. Sure, Leigh. No problem. The awardwinning First Cap Chorus provides a great show all on their own, but they include lots of other music makers at this time of year. The group’s 2012 Langley Christmas Bureau benefit concert is Saturday, Dec. 15, 7:30 p.m. at Chandos Pattison Auditorium, with many groups involved. Tickets are $20/$15/$5 at the door, with all proceeds to Langley Christmas Bureau. For more info, contact Gord Harris at 604-530-4795. This is a big auditorium; you should be able to get tickets at the door, no prob. OK, so the days are still dark and Christmas Day is fast approaching. For those still seeking the perfect gift, here are two ideas: I always appreciate tickets to live theatre – and you must have someone on your list who enjoys these outings as well. The Arts Club’s Surrey Spectacular Series continues in the new year

with two hit shows. You can purchase a four-ticket flex pass for $99 – use all four tickets for one show or split them between the two, at Surrey Arts Centre. Great gift! But you have to do it now, as this offer is valid only until Dec. 23 (call 604501-5566). The two shows offered are winners: Henry and Alice: Into the Wild (Jan. 15 to 26) and Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps. (Feb. 26 to March 9). Wow. Here’s my last suggestion for a super gift: Give someone a membership to the Arts Council of Surrey. The cost of membership is as low as $22.40 for the year. ACS is a very large, active and growing arts council, and it has done wonders for the City of Surrey and its arts and cultural endeavours. You don’t have to go to meetings, attend any events or help fundraise – although that is always an option. Membership includes a sleek, informative monthly news magazine with pages and pages of very useful information. For membership forms, email info@ artscouncilofsurrey.ca, phone 604-594-2700, visit www. artscouncilofsurrey.ca or drop by the arts council’s office at Newton Cultural Centre, 13530 72nd Ave. Betcha they can even gift-wrap a membership if you need that service, too.

Sticks and Stars program makes an impact Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

Simple lessons often have the biggest impact. Greg Hopps knows this first hand after watching his innovative elementary school after-hours sessions blossom into a fullfledged sanctioned program with the Surrey School District. Sticks and Stars is now offered at four different elementary schools in the district and it recently attracted $25,000 in sponsorship money from the Royal Bank. “I had no idea it would turn out like this; it’s so cool,” Hopps marvelled. “It’s now becoming what I wanted to be although there are a couple of what I considered to be key components that have been lost a bit. That’s all part of growth in turning a small idea into something bigger. It’s better now for sure, even if it is different.” In his first year as a vice-principal at Cougar Creek Elementary in Newton in 2010, Hopps and principal Raminder

 



manager of Business Development Services, helped bring the Royal Bank on board, and now Sticks and Stars has partnered with a number of education enterprises to increase the scope of activities for the students. This year the kids will get to take part in several on-ice hockey sessions with the Pacific Titans Hockey Academy as well as educational components conducted by such groups as HR MacMillan Space Centre, SFU Mechatronics Lab, High- Touch High Tech and Mad Science. Hopps has moved on to Surrey’s Riverdale Elementary this year and has brought the program with him. He is surprised at how quickly the program has grown but said the true reward is seeing how excited the kids are about participating. When he sent out registration forms this week, the contents of the Sticks and Stars schedule created a buzz among the Riverdale boys. “The schools are getting some new ball hockey equipment and the kids are so pumped about it,” Hopps said. “The best thing is there is an academic component to it and the kids really enjoy it.”

a positive attitude; and be a good boy means behave well. So I thought, maybe some of these boys could benefit from lessons like that.” The new program operated on Saturday afternoon and began as a basketball session in the school gym coupled with a leadership lesson each week. Given Canada’s hockeymad culture, it was just a matter of time before the switch was made from the big orange basketballs to the smaller, neon orange missiles used in ball hockey. The program spread to two schools in 2011 and this year is operating at four locations in Surrey. The cost for participants is free but Hopps admits not all of the kids who sign up have a choice in the matter. “It’s pretty accessible and almost every kid who wants to get in can get in. At the same time, there are several kids at each school where we tell them, ‘You have to be in this program. This is such a good program for you and you need to be there.’ I’ll make the call home and tell the parents that their boy needs to be in this program.” Liane Ricou, the Surrey School District’s

Randhawa put their heads together about ways to reach out to some of the at-risk kids in the school. The two men knew that around the Grade 5 age group, boys were becoming more aware of social trends, peer groups and Internet gaming. They were also picking up on some less desirable trends, including the sort of fancy vehicles favoured by the underground gang culture. The goal was to reach out to these kids in a way that would strengthen their selfconfidence and self-esteem while providing them with solid leadership skills. Hopps said everything the program aimed to teach could be boiled down to what he told his own son before minor hockey games. “When I’m tying up my son’s skates, I tell him three things: Do your best, have fun, and most importantly, be a good boy,” Hopps said. “I tell him that because those are three things he can control. I’m a vice-principal now, and I find a lot of the discipline issues I deal with come down to those three things. And the older the kids get, those three things keep coming up - do your best means have a strong work ethic; have fun now means have

Warriors fall short in final versus Kitsilano The Warriors opened the tournament with a 86-49 romp past Archbishop Carney followed by a 64-38 quarterfinal win over Sardis. White Rock then outlasted Vancouver College 90-81 in the semifinal round to set up a date with Kits in Saturday’s finale. “Kits is definitely the strongest B.C. team we’ve played for sure,” Shury said. “Their big man Luca ‘the Bazooka’ (Zaharijeni) in the middle creates problems but he didn’t do much scoring-wise against us. We did a good job of checking him but their point guard, Justin Sze went off with seven threes and bunch of free throws. He was the difference in the final for them.” White Rock’s Tyus Allen and Varton Tanielian were each named to the tournament all-star team. Allen and Matthew Perrin received HSBC scholarships along with Fleetwood Park’s Simram Bir.

The White Rock Christian Academy Warriors got a first-hand look at the top rated team in B.C. high school hoops at the 2012 Telus Basketball Classic last weekend. The Warriors advanced to the tourney’s title game before settling for a silver medal following an 81-70 loss to the high-flying Kitsilano Blue Demons. It was the first loss of the season to a B.C. team for the third-ranked Warriors. “The one thing that we have to learn is to stay away from foul trouble,” said Warriors coach Dale Shury. “That’s going to be an ongoing thing with us, especially because we have such a short bench. “In a big game we can’t afford to have even one guy in foul trouble and against Kits, that was a factor. We had one starter only play half the game because he got into foul trouble early and that affected the rest of the team.”

Surrey United finished off the first half of the Metro Women’s Soccer League premier season by surviving a late scare in a 2-1 win on the road over Burnaby’s Columbus Sunday. Surrey appeared to have the game in hand with a comfortable 2-0 lead before Columbus made things interesting.

Surging Pegasus pulls out a win over Hurricanes Newton’s ICST Pegasus ran their current unbeaten streak to three games by quelling the Delta United Hurricanes 2-1 in Vancouver Metro Soccer League premier action Sunday at John Oliver Park. The game was a match between two teams headed in opposite directions. The Horsemen, the defending league champs, are regaining their form after a discouraging start to the season. The Hurricanes, meanwhile, have sputtered along for most of the season after a thrilling run to the provincial championship game last May. Sunday’s loss means Delta has just one point to show for their last four outings. Sunday’s date with the Horsemen was a seesaw affair as the two sides battled to the final whistle. Pegasus opened the scoring with a goal from Ryan Powell after some fine passing between Jag Gill and Omari Aldridge. The Hurricanes answered quickly and tied the affair in the 25th minute when Gagan Josan’s long shot careened off a Pegasus defender and into the goal.

The Horsemen pressed to the attack in the second half and created a number of quality scoring chances before Gurjit Dhaliwal finally scored to put Pegasus ahead for good in the 65th minute. Elsewhere, the Rovers CCBTU remain mired in a serious funk after dropping their fourth consecutive game, this time 2-1 to West Van at Newton Athletic Park Saturday. The Rovers were perched atop the standings for most of the first two months of the season but the current skid has seen them fall all the way to fourth place. Rizal Ganief scored the lone Rovers’ goal in the 80th minute off a crossing pass from Helge Neumann. The Surrey United Firefighters picked up their second win in as many weeks when they dispatched Croatia 4-2 in Vancouver Saturday. Angus Burke scored threee times while the fourth Surrey marker was crediteed as a Croatia own goal. Goalkeeper Andrew Fink stopped two penalty kicks while backstopping Surrey to the win.
