South Surrey may not be getting a gaming facility, but Newton might. Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Limited is permitted to redevelop the Newton Square Bingo Hall into a community gaming centre, according to a corporate report approved by council last October. The report states that if the proposed South Surrey casino was not approved, Gateway would redevelop the hall and construct a gaming facility with 150 permanent slot machines. Originally, Gateway planned to move the hall’s gaming licence to the South Surrey casino, pending council’s approval of that facility. “I think that it’s very important not to have a gaming centre in a vulnerable community,” said Coun. Barinder Rasode of the redevelopment, citing concerns with low-income areas of the neighbourhood. “For me, ideally, if there

‘Two-tiered’ policing is way to go, Watts says Deep roots with RCMP doesn’t mean city hall isn’t on lookout for efficiencies, mayor says Stories by Tom Zytaruk Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk
Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts says she prefers a “two-tiered” approach to policing that would maintain neighbourhood-level contact between police and residents to having one big regional police force serve the entire Lower Mainland. That said, the mayor also indicated she’s not hung up on what police force polices her city – or the region, for that matter – as long as the model works. “I really don’t care what uniform they wear as long as the job gets done,” she said. The Now asked Watts where her loyalties lay after the Vancouver Police on Tuesday endorsed former judge Wally Oppal’s recommendation to establish a regional police force that would serve all of Greater Vancouver. Watts replied that she believes Surrey has been “well-served” by the RCMP. “I’m in favour of two-tiered policing.” What does that mean? Watts sees a need for some police officers to be “imbedded” in the community, to maintain neighbourhood connections, while homicide investigations and curbing gangsters should be under the bailiwick of a “co-ordinated” regional effort. This is more or less what we have now. But the relationship between the two tiers, Watts argues, requires better definition and needs to be strengthened because at present there’s no adequate “governance structure” overseeing it. According to a recent Angus Reid poll, 57
per cent of respondents surveyed support the creation of a single police force that would oversee the whole Lower Mainland. Watts doesn’t appear to be married to the idea of the RCMP policing Surrey ad infinitum, but if the city did part ways with the force it would be a difficult separation indeed considering the RCMP’s deep and broad roots in this city.
I don’t really care what uniform they wear as long as the job gets done.
Those roots are witnessed by the proliferation of RCMP E-division buildings in West Newton, Surrey being home to the nation’s largest RCMP detachment, and the fact E-division is currently transferring some 2,700 employees from throughout the Metro Vancouver into its new $1-billion headquarters building at 14200 Green Timbers Way. The RCMP has been policing Surrey since it replaced the Surrey Police Force on May 1, 1951. The force’s new contract, approved by city council last spring, will expire on March 31, 2032. When the contract was signed, annual RCMP costs in Surrey were roughly
$101 million, but that figure was expected to increase by 1.6 per cent over the next three years. The new contract, like the old, contains a clause where Surrey can opt out with two years’ notice. For her part, Watts sees no pressing need to replace the RCMP here. “I think they’ve done a good job in the City of Surrey,” she said. Still, city hall, she added, is “continually looking for efficiencies.” Surrey’s detachment is Canada’s largest and currently has 661 Mounties and roughly 250 support staff. Roughly 46 per cent of property tax collected in Surrey pays for the city’s RCMP service. Under the latest contract, the federal government pays for 10 per cent of the RCMP’s costs with the city picking up the remaining 90 per cent. Last week, Watts attended a national public safety summit – The Economics of Policing – in Ottawa, where politicians wrestled with the topics of rising police costs despite dropping crime rates, as well as sharing responsibility for those costs.
JACKSON LIKES STATUS QUO Meantime, Delta Mayor Lois Jackson is not in favour of a regional police force being created for the Lower Mainland. “Why would we take a lesser service than what we have? We have a great police force,” Jackson said of the Delta Police, a force that’s celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. “The system we have here is second to none. It works for us, and our crime stats show it.” The Delta Police co-operates with neighbouring police departments while at the same time maintaining a “no call too small” approach to local policing. “I don’t think anybody else does that,” Jackson noted. “There are lots of places to co-operate, but I think you have to remain in charge of your own house, so to speak.” firstname.lastname@example.org
Delta chief says police must be better organizers
Delta Police Chief Jim Cessford says a regional police force would tend to benefit bigger cities at the expense of smaller ones. “I don’t agree with a general amalgamation,” Cessford said. “You tend to de-prioritize local concerns.” Why adopt a policing model that would cost more money to run but not give better service, he asked. “Why would we do this?” Rather, Cessford advocates the
creation of a specialized police agency, under one chief director, that would investigate gangs, organized crime, homicides “and those bigger issues” while leaving community based policing to the municipal and city police departments. “We need to do a better job of organizing,” he said. Cessford authored a position paper on the issue five years ago, entitled “From Integration to Organization:
A Renewed Model for Policing in British Columbia.” In it, he proposed that the provincial government set up a British Columbia Specialized Policing Agency that would handle big-issue criminal activity. Cessford also called on the government to develop an “overall” policing model that would promote the work of local police agencies and integrated units “by coordinating all efforts.”

Board fronts $5M for new schools in Surrey Christopher Poon Now staff Twitter @questionchris
The Surrey board of education is taking matters into its own hands by fronting $5 million in order to speed up the development of four school projects. The decision, made last Thursday, will see the funds go toward the architectural work required to begin moving forward with building two new secondary schools and expanding two elementary schools. It is expected the Ministry of Education will reimburse the board once the province approves the project and the move is being seen as a way to get a head start on what trustee Laurae McNally sees as “a process that has gotten way too political.” According to McNally, the provincial government’s current process for approving new education projects does not adequately address the needs of a growing district such as Surrey, as it announces projects seemingly at will, without any schedule or deadline. “We’re just fed up with the lack of progress
We’re just fed up with the lack of progress from Victoria.… And these four projects, we needed them yesterday. from Victoria – our parents are fed up, our students are fed up, staff in the schools are fed up, so we’re taking matters into our own hands and save a bit of time,” said McNally. “It takes almost a year to get the planning done before the shovels get in the ground, once the project has been approved. And these four projects, we needed them yesterday.” The two new high schools are set for the Clayton and Grandview areas, while the additions will go to Cloverdale and Grandview elementary schools. The new secondary schools will ease the pressure on high schools Earl Marriot, Lord Tweedsmuir and Clayton Heights. Education Minister Don McRae did not return the Now’s call by press time Wednesday.

Find another ERT partner, Vancouver tells Delta Police Tom Zytaruk Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk
Vancouver Police have given Delta Police six months’ notice to look for another partner for its emergency response team service. “VPD would assist us if in fact we had a serious situation,” Delta Police Chief Jim Cessford told the Now, “but they would
prefer that we explored other options for our ERT response.” “We are working within our own department for resources and we are in discussions with the RCMP as well,” he added. “I am comfortable with our options at this point.” The VPD has a 32-member emergency response team. Delta’s team has eight members.
Baton attack on teen leads to four arrests A 16-year-old boy was struck over the head with a baton during a daytime street assault in North Delta on Tuesday. Four teenage boys were subsequently arrested. Const. Ciaran Feenan, of the Delta Police, said a North Delta resident called police about a fight out in front of her home, in the 11200-block of 82A Avenue. She told police a person was being hit with what appeared to be a baton. The victim sustained cuts to his head that weren’t considered to be life-threatening. When police arrived at the scene they found four boys trying to hide and one of them had a baton. Feenan said the four
were taken to police headquarters. Two were released on a promise to appear in court and two were released pending further investigation, Feenan said.

Despite problems in our health-care system, I saw a team doing its very utmost for people.
Beautiful and fragrant roses to Mayor Dianne Watts. Thank you for hearing the citizens of Surrey and speaking for us when you voted to defeat the casino application. I am proud to say I have supported you in past elections and will in the future. God bless you and the woman who suffers with mental illness who bravely shared her struggles bringing the crowd to tears!
Rotten tomatoes to people who trample through sensitive ecological areas to get photos of an endangered creature, all the while causing stress and disruption to the animals.

Gateway has until May 1 to get permit for Newton ‹ from page 1
The slots were added after the NDP government introduced expanded gambling in B.C., allowing slots in charity casinos. Then-mayor Doug McCallum and his Surrey Electors Team – which current mayor Dianne Watts was a member of at the time – put city staff to work to shut down the slots. On Jan. 9, 1998, city planner Lehman Walker presented a report to council, saying that the addition of slots would draw more gamblers to Newton and cause more problems in the area. He proposed council outlaw slots from Surrey, which they did the following month.
SEMIAHMOO OPEN TO IDEAS As for the possibility of a casino on Semiahmoo First Nation land following the South Surrey casino’s defeat, Semiahmoo Coun. Joanne Charles said there weren’t any immediate plans for said land. “We’re not running out and seeking any interest in that matter,” she said, though she did note the band was looking at future opportunities for their land. “At this point and time we are exploring the possibilities and opportunities that would be a win, win, win and would provide economic stability to the Semiahmoo First Nation and something that would be beneficial for the communities in the peninsula. “If anybody knocks on our door with the possibility of opportunities, Semiahmoo will look at them just as any other municipality and First Nation would... We don’t have any immediate future plans for the lands at Semihamoo, but we are moving forward to make sure we’re ready to look at opportunities when they come around.”

Doug Elford, a long-time resident of Newton who opposed the influx of slot machines, isn’t thrilled with the prospect of keeping the one-armed bandits around. “It sounds like we don’t really have much of a choice now,” said Elford. “We’re going to have to live with the spinoff effects of penny slots in the neighbourhood.” Elford said he would like to see more low-income housing initiatives in the area instead of another gaming facility. Tanya Gabara, community liaison for Gateway, said the company is committed to revitalizing the site, which is zoned for retail-commercial uses and the construction of a community gaming centre. However, whether or not the site will host gambling is still up in the air. Gateway, which already has the gaming licence for the property, just needs to obtain a building permit by May 1 for redevelopment. While a heavy-hearted Rasode voted in favour of the South Surrey casino – had council approved it, the slots would’ve been moved out of Newton – she stressed it isn’t a matter of one neighbourhood against another. “(The City of Surrey’s) gaming policy very clearly stipulates that a gaming facility has to be attached to either a hotel, convention center or something else,” said Rasode. “The Newton bingo hall does not meet our gaming policy. South Surrey would have.” The city’s gaming policy states that any Surrey casino must be a component of a “cluster of tourism facilities” such as a hotel with convention and meeting facilities, a trade and convention centre or an entertainment complex. It’s unclear if the city can take action against the development on the grounds that the facility would not be paired with other tourism facilities. Rasode said she would speak with her team at the city to see what could be done. Newton has a long history with slot machines: in 1998, Surrey city council ran the Great Canadian Casino Company out of town after BCLC installed 191 slot machines in a charity gaming hall in Newton.

Casino vote was bold statement ViewFrom TheCheap Seats Michael Booth
owsers – I’m impressed. Apparently the snide “Development First” tag isn’t an appropriate fit for Mayor Dianne Watts and her Surrey First party. When Watts and company swept all eight councillor positions and the mayor’s chair in the 2011 municipal elections my initial reaction was: That’s amazing – and that’s also disturbing. A complete sweep of all available positions by one party in any election, at any level, is rarely a good thing. In addition to sowing the seeds of potential for arrogance and irresponsible behaviour, such a result cannot be good for democracy. As I wrote after that election, “One civic party cannot possibly accurately reflect all of the voters in Surrey, but we now have a council where everybody sitting in the fancy chairs at the front of the room drinks from the same Kool-Aid container.” But as we discovered early
Saturday morning, Surrey First has several Kool-Aid jugs. On election night, Watts promised claims her Surrey First group would bring a wide range of viewpoints to the council chamber and in their first serious test, they proved her correct in rejecting the proposed casino/conference centre/hotel development in a rural area of South Surrey. Watts herself put an exclamation point on her council’s open-mindedness by casting the deciding “no” vote herself in a 5-4 decision. Give the woman credit – she delivers on her promises. Cynics might say the vote was orchestrated, but those allegations don’t pass the smell test. If Surrey council had their minds made up all along about the fate of the plan, why would council members sit through more than 13 hours of open hearings on the issue before staging their dramatic vote at 2 a.m. when only the hyper-caffeinated were watching the live stream of the event on their computers? This vote was a bold statement by Watts and company. Deserved or not, Surrey First is seen as a right-of-centre party
with a reputation of being developer friendly. Opponents have slapped them with an assortment of labels: pro-growth being the nicest, tree killers being the most obnoxious. Early Saturday morning, Watts and the rest of Surrey First put the lie to those accusations – at least temporarily. Make no mistake; this was not an easy decision for any municipal politician to deal with. On the one hand, the casino must have been extremely tempting with it’s promise of jobs, spinoff development and, of course, millions of dollars in revenue. Each month, more than 1,000 people move to Surrey, a growth rate that puts enormous pressure on civic officials to keep pace with infrastructure and city services. All of those things require money and here was a development that offered the opportunity for a hefty
boost to the civic bottom line. On the flip side, there was a significant push back from residents concerned about a litany of issues including anti-gambling, environmental impact, traffic congestion, property values, and a potential rise in crime. One thing was clear: No matter what decision the Surrey First council made, people were going to be mad at them. To their credit, Watts and Surrey First did the prudent thing: they listened. They held 13 hours of public hearings over a four-day span where all of the aspects of the proposal were brought forward – often multiple times. Of course, this was probably just the tip of the iceberg of information swamping the councillors’ email inboxes and draining the batteries of their cellphones. It wasn’t long before the backlash of the Surrey
council decision was felt as within hours, provincial deputy premier Rich Coleman issued a blast at Watts that included a promise that Surrey would never get another chance at a casino. Really Rich? A mayor and council side with their constituents on an issue and you believe they should be punished for it? Watts will thank you for the extra votes your boneheaded statement will bring her next time Surrey goes to the polls in 2014. There are still questions surrounding their decision, the biggest being whether Watts and council would
pay as close attention to residents’ concerns if the same proposal was offered to, say, Whalley or Guildford instead of Surrey First’s electoral power base in South Surrey. No matter where you stand on this particular issue, however, you have to respect the process in which Surrey council approached the proposal. They listened before making a decision, a refreshing and somewhat novel approach to politics in this country of late. Michael Booth can be reached at mbooth@ thenownewspaper.com

Wrong-lane letter sparks huge response from readers EDITOR’S NOTE: A letter we published about driving infractions on Jan. 17 opened the flood gates for letters to the editor. We could only publish a select few on this page but you can read more at thenownewspaper.com. The Editor, I have never written to a paper, I left that to my husband. But I simply cannot ignore the letter written by David Woodward about the way to turn left at a cross roads. I am amazed that he has been driving for 60 years and has not caused an accident. And then to criticize an RCMP officer for giving him a ticket. Woodward should apologize to the officer and take a driving refresher course. Patricia Stibbs, Surrey ••• The Editor, I must respond to letter writer David Woodward who, incredibly, admits that he has been driving for more than 60 years and did not know it was illegal to turn into the right lane when making a left-hand turn. I find that disturbing but I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. I have been driving
••• The Editor, I’m glad to see police ticketing for this infraction. I learned to drive 50 years ago, and was taught to always turn into the “near” lane, whether turning left or right. I do so, and then signal to change to the next lane. I’ve been honked at by drivers turning wide and thinking they have the right of way – guess they’re just following others’ bad habits. Perhaps driving refresher courses should be mandatory with licence renewals.
••• The Editor, The RCMP may have a lot to apologize for, but ticketing drivers for either not understanding the rules of the road, or choosing not to follow them, is definitely not one of them. Kudos to the RCMP for ticketing illegal turns. We’ll all breathe easier if those who don’t realize this rule exists begin to apply it.
••• The Editor, I am the first to bash the RCMP for their ineptness. And I’m almost the first to criticize them when they hand out tickets for seemingly meaningless offences. However, I take huge exception to David Woodward’s views. In giving him a ticket, the RCMP were sending him (and all the other drivers) a message that there are people like me who might be turning right into that lane that you ‘assumed’ was the proper lane. Thank goodness for all of us who practice safe driving and avoid collisions when others assume. When turning left, you must turn into the lane closest to the centre line (centre lane to centre lane). Then when I am going the opposite direction to you and in the curb lane, I turn right from curb lane to curb lane. Imagine how much faster the traffic would flow if we could count on people doing this. And by the way, yes I am guilty of doing things incorrectly too. Don’t bash the RCMP for correcting driver assumptions. Keep up to date on laws and safe driving practices.

for 45 years and one of my pet peeves has been not being able to make a safe legal right-hand turn because the oncoming cars turning left are turning into the right lane. I am pleased to hear that RCMP are focusing on this dangerous driving behavior. Woodward’s decision not to fight the ticket is the right one as he would surely lose. Perhaps his time would be more wisely spent taking a refresher course on the basic rules of the road. Terry Taylor, North Delta
••• The Editor, I don’t know where David Woodward got his licence but if it was in B.C., the drivers handbook had specific instructions on how to enter an intersection and which lane a driver should be in when completing a turn. That he does not know this does not surprise me at all. Very few people in the Lower Mainland have any idea of the proper way to make a turn. Even many in the police forces here do not know – or at least do not practise – the correct way of turning. Neil Manson, Surrey

Bermuda Avenue Triangle is the “middle slot” play for Surrey Little Theatre – the second of three productions during the company’s 2012-13 season. “The middle slot always means rehearsals over the Christmas period,” Price said, “and it’s sometimes difficult to get people together for rehearsals. A lot of people don’t want to do that middle-slot play, with everything else going on.… We did get a cast,
but I’ve had easier times of it. The saying is that we don’t need a lot of people, we just need good ones. That’s the most important thing in theatre.” Tickets are $15 for the production of Bermuda Avenue Triangle. Show times are Thursday to Saturday at 8 p.m., plus 2 p.m. matinees on Feb. 3 and Feb. 10. For details, phone 604-576-8451 or visit www. surreylittletheatre.com.

When a pair of fuddy-duddy widows are moved into a Las Vegas apartment complex by their concerned daughters, they meet a gentleman who sweeps them both off their feet. It’s the laughs-aplenty plot of Bermuda Avenue Triangle, the latest play brought to the stage at Surrey Little Theatre. The show opens Thursday, Jan. 24 and runs until Feb. 16.

As I write in the director’s notes, there may be snow on the roof but there’s still fire in the furnace.” Kate Major plays Fanny, an “alta cockers” (Jewish slang for an old and complaining person) who moves in with her ItalianCatholic pal Tess, played by Dr. Laurie Kortschak. Then along comes Johnny Paolucci (Peter Cowhig), a hard-drinking “horny desert rat,” as one character calls him. When things get messy in this love triangle, Rabbi Levine (Michael Powell) comes knocking with threats of eviction, and daughters Rita and Angela (Lisa Suzette Beaulieu and Terry Ford)
There are a lot of good laughs in this one, but there’s a message… that it doesn’t matter how old you become, you still want to love and you still want to be loved.

CONTROL WEIGHT ARTHRITIS Pain free in 2 weeks! = CONTROL BLOOD SUGAR
Heartburn Reflux By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD. The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 90% acidic food (meat, pasta, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food). If you cannot change your diet to USDA’s 50% or closer to 80% alkaline food, consider to supplement with a natural health product that helps to increase your pH alkaline level close to a healthy #7. Ask for Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects and may eliminate the need for anti-acid pills many people take. As a bonus, an alkaline balanced body prevents many illnesses. See guarantee printed on box. Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief and having no side effects. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA #39 Very happy with acid reflux relief. Last 4 years had increasing reflux despite taking antiacid products. I am also trying to eat more alkaline food. Grzegorz Smirnow, 43, Mt.

ARTS & LIFE
By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD. Long term weight control without controlling blood sugar is destined to fail. This is why we have an epidemic of obesity. How it works: Stops the “roller coaster” of cravings and appetite to eat foods like sugar and starches that cause high blood glucose levels, which then brings on your pancreas to automatically pump insulin into your blood stream. Subsequently the high level of insulin precipitates low levels of blood glucose and cravings for more sugar and starchy carbohydrates (breads, noodles, crackers, cereals, french fries) which you don’t need and therefore it goes into unwanted fat storage and being overweight. Experts now recognize these basic facts.#40 Bell Blood Sugar Imbalance helps to stop this vicious cycle and puts you in control. Dr. Hammond says this natural product works 10 times better because it reprograms our brain and pancreas to release insulin in a controlled manner. Helpful non-fattening eating suggestions in the box. Fibers and exercise like walking are beneficial and help after you control the underlying basic blood sugar imbalance. Working in a health #40 food store I heard people saying how well #40 works. I tried it myself. Finally a product that controls my blood sugar much better than what anything else we had in the store. Thank you for helping people around the world. Irene M. Urdialez, 43, Brynton Beach, FL My medical indicated pre-diabetic. I took #40. When re-tested readings were fine. This helped my metabolism and my weight is down 25 lbs. I am grateful to the health food store people for their advice. Michael O’Brien, 60, Rutherglen, ON I finally found the right approach to lose weight. I tried for 3 years to lose weight. After starting #40 my blood sugar is stable now. I was able to stop overeating and lost my excess weight. Sara John, 40, Kitchener, ON I was struggling for 15 years with weight gain in spite of diet and exercise. I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I will forever be grateful to the store manager that explained to me to take #40 and read suggestions to avoid fattening foods. I lost 70 lbs. My fasting blood sugar is now 92. My 2 hour post meal glucose level is now 92 as well. My new shape raised my self-esteem and gave me immeasurable peace of mind. Karen Maples, 55, Clarksville, TN Diabetic eliminated high blood sugar levels with #40. My readings were 140 to 200 and are now 99 to 122 range where I want it to be. Before I bought about 10 different supplement that were more expensive and didn’t work as well. I also lost some weight. A great improvement in my health and daily living.

“¡Viva Surrey!” benefit Feb. 9
This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products, physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the American food industry. No sharks are #1 caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let activists confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples: Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CAI tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ONCancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QCOthers write: Can walk again for hours…Climb stairs without hanging on to railing…First time in 15 years can sleep at night…Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister. Bell relays 100% truthful user’s free speech. No need to make claims. No money is paid for it. No questions asked guarantee.

f we are lucky enough to stay healthy, we can be assured of reaching a “certain age,” too often defined by a mid-life crisis. It used to be that when men reached the age of 50-something, they would buy a sports car or find a “younger” woman to recapture youth. Women suffer hormonal changes with menopause, and anything can happen. Today, however, these mid-life crises reflect the downturn in the economy with resultant job loss for the over-50 person. Life changes. Henry and Alice: Into the Wild examines one couple’s modern mid-life crisis – loss of employment, change of lifestyle, disrupted plans for the future. This play should not be funny, as the real-life problems it poses are hardly laughable. Yet we did laugh and thoroughly enjoyed this lively production, from Arts Club Theatre Co. and running at Surrey Arts Centre’s main stage until Saturday, Jan. 26. This is a professional show by a professional theatre company, so tickets do reflect that fact. But budgets are tight. Here’s a tip: Just call the box office for tickets and use the password “friend” for a $5 discount. The object is to acquire new audience members, so here is just a little incentive. Call 604-501-5566 or visit tickets.surrey.ca. Remember, you are a friend. It’s good to be a friend. Facebook keeps telling me I have hundreds of friends – good to know. I like friends, and I often decide to go see a certain production because friends are involved. Langley Players’ current production is just full of friends – must book tickets. The play is Jim & Shorty, by Canadian actor/writer Alex Poch-Goldin. No, I don’t know him, but I do know most of the cast. You might recognize Dann Wilhelm (Jim) from past productions by Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan Society, including The Pirates of Penzance and The Gondoliers. This is Dann’s first production for Langley Players and his first non-musical play in seven years. Reginald Pillay plays Shorty, and he has also appeared in many FVG&S productions. His non-musical roles include A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Beach House Theatre) and A Talent for Murder (Stage 43). Currently, Reginald can be seen on TV and at the movies in the Encorp Return-It commercial playing opposite a juice cartonshaped puppet. Reg is the guy who doesn’t recycle. Langley resident Mitch Kapustinsky is making his Langley Players acting debut as Big Tom, an aboriginal Canadian. Previously, Mitch has worked behind the
scenes doing sound and lighting. Add another friend to Facebook. Marko Hohlbein directs this “dramedy” – comedy and drama combined, I guess. Marko is a very careful director, and you can bet your friendship that he has selected the best actors for each part. Should be a good show. The story centres around three men living on the fringe of society. They draw us into their world as they trade stories about doughnuts and smokes, sisters and girlfriends, shelters and welfare. Acts of kindness follow acts of selfishness, and humour keeps pace with despair. Life on the street is given a human face as three lonely men fumble to make a connection. Friends, perhaps.
This play should not be funny, as the real-life problems it poses are hardly laughable. Yet we did laugh and thoroughly enjoyed this lively production. Jim & Shorty runs to Feb. 16 (Thursdays to Sundays) at Langley Playhouse, 4307 200th St. All tickets are $15 via 604-534-7469 and www.langleyplayers.com. Although Langley Players Club is strictly community theatre, their volunteer actors do have training behind them. Whether they participated in school drama classes, or availed themselves of community workshops or college courses, training and experience is essential, even at the amateur level. Our little world is full of talented people who would like to have a career on the stage, and it takes work to get there. For several seasons now, Surrey Arts Centre has offered a Mini Musical Theatre Intensive for young performers, during spring break. This year the dates are March 18 to 22 (Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.), and the fee is $265. Interested students must apply by Feb. 8. Application and registration details are online at www.surrey.ca/arts. This short course helps talented students gain the skills, confidence and contacts necessary to continue their musical-theatre education and pursue their dreams. As workshop co-ordinator, instructor and founder Peter Jorgensen says, “We don’t just teach the notes of the song and the steps of the dance, we give our students the skills to understand, interpret and communicate the story.” The top-level instruction gives a young performer the advantage they need to move toward their goals. Some graduates of the classes are now working professionally and studying at some of the best theatre schools in North America. email@example.com

come experience the difference
When it comes to a fullservice breakfast, good value, fresh ingredients, and plenty of choice contribute to a restaurantâ€™s reputation. And when the most important meal of the day is offered all day, every day (until close), itâ€™s no secret why IHOPâ€™s popularity continues to rise and shine. Since 1958, when the doors to the fabled A-frame in Toluca Lake, California ďŹ rst opened, IHOP has ďŹ‚ipped their famous buttermilk pancakes in over 1,400 locations across the U.S. and Canada. In Surreyâ€™s Scottsdale community, IHOP celebrates 18 years on February 14 â€” ďŹ ttingly, as customers have had a love affair with their ďŹ‚uffy ďŹ‚apjacks and all foods breakfast from its inception. â€œWe pride ourselves in excellent service, a comfortable family dining experience, and a good variety of items (plus vegetarian options), not to mention our SIMPLE & FIT menu,â€? says owner, Gary Kelbert. With nutritional food that ďŹ ts your goals, and more than 30 options, itâ€™s easy to see why (come January in particular) consumers make a conscious shift to more healthy choices. â€œFor less than 600 calories, you can enjoy favourites like Harvest Grain â€˜N NutÂŽ pancakes with blueberries and banana and scrambled egg substitute,â€? says Kelbert. Hold the butter and the whip, and sugar-free syrup are also calorie-counting
