Saving The House
The moms and dads who run Richmond’s only PPP (Parent Participation Pre-school), had less than two months to rescue their Gingerbread House.

Berry blast forces farmer’s hand Workers say sunny spring has led to best ever crop of giant strawberries BY ALAN CAMPBELL
JOHN CORREA/SPECIAL TO THE NEWS
No clownin’ around, Bill Zylmans said the secret to producing great strawberries every year is rotating the land as much as possible and using new plants.

They’re “big, red, juicy and exciting,” almost two weeks early and they’re the best crop some of his long-serving workers have ever seen. Weeks of sustained spring sunshine has forced the large farmer’s hand of Bill Zylmans into opening up his W&A Farms’ strawberry U-pick at Westminster Highway and No. 8 Road this week. Zylmans was contemplating holding off for another week, but the strength and depth of a bumper crop and burgeoning demand meant he had to open the gates on Monday — at least a week ahead of schedule. “I opened U-pick today, but we’ve been selling to the stores for a week now,” said Zylmans. “I had so many enquiries, people coming in and the phones have been ringing off the hook, so I said, ‘to hell with it, let’s open her Scan page up.’ for video “It’s certainly come earlier than the last few years, that’s for sure. I’ll probably get about an extra two weeks out of this.” Despite this year’s strawberry season arriving a shade early, Zylmans recalls just a few years ago, when it was the norm to open up early in June. “It’s just the last few years that spring has been disappointing and we’ve had to wait,” he added. “We haven’t had really hot weather, it’s been ideal for the strawberries; in the high teens to low 20s is perfect. If it’s too hot, they ripen too quickly without really growing.” Zylmans said his secret, if you can call it that, is to rotate the land being used. “Using new plants as much as possible also helps,” he said. “I know some people use the same plants year after year, but they just don’t produce the same kind of berry as this.” Last year, one of Zylmans’ rivals, Ravinder Gill, of Birak Berry Farms, ceremoniously dumped tons of unwanted local strawberries onto the highway in protest over the crippling low prices being paid by Abbotsford-based processors in favour of the cheaper, Californian import. And, although the processors are paying 50 cents per pound — double that of last year — Zylmans said it’s still not worth it, as it costs him 42 cents per pound to harvest. “Some folks have been flooding the market (with strawberries), but they’re still using old plants and they’re produc-

ing these small berries,” said Zylmans. “People want the big berries, the same size as the Californian ones, but with proper colour right through and the taste — the taste is everything. “I’m good with the local market and the U-pick, as I’m giving people quality and they come back for more.” As for the science of the U-pick, Zylmans isn’t too fussy about when he picks them, they’re all great he beamed, unabashed. “Ah, early in the morning, they might not be as flavourful as when the sun gets on them,” he mused. “It doesn’t matter much, they’re way better than those Californian ones with the white insides.”
STRAWBERRY FACTS AND TIPS
! Mid-season local strawberries tend to be red right through ! Choose fully ripe strawberries, they will not ripen after picking. ! Buy only what you plan to eat or freeze within 48 hours. ! One cup of strawberries contains less than 50 calories. ! 150 grams of strawberries contain 150 per cent of your daily requirement of vitamin C. ! To avoid adding calories via sugar, macerate strawberries with balsamic vinegar, black pepper, mint leaves or basil leaves.

Participating parents pull Gingerbread out of fire Participation pre-school wins ‘Outstanding’ award for fighting to stay alive
BY ALAN CAMPBELL
With a little less than two months to find a new roof over their heads or perish, the parents of Gingerbread House were frantically scouring Richmond. Their home for their entire 42-year history, a section of the Richmond Presbyterian Church on No. 2 Road and Granville Avenue, was being lost to them forever, due to renovations. And just when it seemed the parents — who together run the city’s only parent-participation preschool — were clean out of ideas, they discovered some space at McKinney elementary in south Richmond. Within a matter of weeks, the hard-working parent crew had managed to move the entire school to its new base, scrambled to put in place all necessary licenses and permits and lost just one week of school time. Last week, in recognition of their efforts, Gingerbread House was presented with the Outstanding Preschool award from the Council of Parent Scan page Participation Preschools for photos (PPP), which represents 34 such organizations across B.C. “I think (the award) was for surviving the year; it was very special to receive,” said Gingerbread’s teacher, Lisa Anderson. “There was a lot of uncertainty, parents were worried as we weren’t sure where we were going to go. “We tried almost every school in Richmond, churches and commercial sites. But we had to rule the commercial sites out, as we only run in the mornings and it wasn’t financially viable.
JOHN CORREA/SPECIAL TO THE NEWS
Teacher Lisa Anderson, above, says parents at Gingerbread House are not only encouraged to take part in activities but are duty-bound, as the school belongs to them. “Things were getting quite anxious until we found McKinney.” In a PPP, the parents are not merely welcome to “participate” with the kids, but an elected board of parents make all the decisions on hiring staff and the budget. There are duty days (once or twice a month) when parents come into the classroom and help the teacher with snacks, setting up and cleaning up and playing with the kids. And then there’s the laundry, making stuff and keeping the website updated. There’s also a “parent education” event every month, usually involving a guest speaker.
Anderson has been involved with the 19family strong Gingerbread, either as a parent or a teacher, for more than eight years. “I really liked the idea in the first instance because my three-year-old son wasn’t really speaking and I was able to stay with him, keep an eye on him and see him making connections,” she said. “I made friends as well by participating and I’m still good friends with the people I met seven or eight years ago when I first got involved.” Mom-of-two Alli Ridley, Gingerbread’s fundraising coordinator, has been involved for more than two years with her children,
Violet, 4, and Wade, 3. “I enjoy being able to be part of the parent community and getting children to know each other and other parents,” said Ridley, herself a Grade 2 job share teacher at Anderson elementary. Being involved in the day-to-day running of their children’s preschool instills a sense of ownership and emotional attachment, unlike regular preschools, according to both Anderson and Ridley. “When we had the scare last year of not knowing if it was going to continue, we tapped into that feeling of working together and being part of something,” said Ridley. “We had a great sense of achievement after that and we thoroughly deserved that award.”
Dealing with diabetes; Wellness Day to address disease spike BY PHILIP RAPHAEL
Raymond Wong looked down at the dining table and knew he had a plateful of trouble in front of him. But he kind of knew it was coming, eyeing the large, appetizing portion of rice, savoury duck and other tantalizingly rich foods that graced most of his evening meals. He hadn’t been feeling
quite right — lumbering, and tired — for quite a while and decided it might be a good idea if he got things checked out with his doctor. After all, Wong was co-chair of a group helping organize a special diabetes screening Wellness Day this Saturday (June 15) aimed mostly at those of Chinese ethnicity which has experienced a dramatic increase in the disease.

screened beforehand? He did and good thing, too, as the test showed he had developed Type 2 diabetes. “Although it came as a bit of a shock to get the diagnosis, my body had been telling me for a while that something was not right,” said Wong, 62, adding he had plenty of the hallmarks for those at risk of developing the disease.

Wong: Exercising at work Continued from page 3 “I used to weigh 170 to 180 pounds,” said Wong. “Now I’m up around 210. And it’s the little things you notice when you gain that weight. I used to wear undershirts and a dress shirt over top. Now, I find that too restricting.” Food choices outside business and home life were also a problem as high calorie meals were the frequent choice at community functions he attended as president of the Vancouver Cambie Lions Club. Now, Wong is trying to turn things around with meals featuring salads and cutting out sugar-laden soft drinks. He is also making time in his work day to include exercising at the gym and is taking after-dinner walks. “It’s all helping,” he said. “There haven’t been any dramatic changes, but I needed to start before my condition got worse and made it even more difficult to get healthier.” Since his diagnosis of diabetes is still recent, Wong’s doctor has held back from prescribing drug treatment, preferring the “self-help” route of exercise and a better diet to see if that has the desired impact. Wong’s situation is one being increasingly played out following the findings of an Ontario health researcher, Dr. Baiju Shah, who co-authored a study suggesting the Chinese-Canadian population be part of the diabetes high risk group that already includes Canadians of South Asian, African or Aboriginal origin. According to the study, the rate of diabetes among Chinese-Canadians in Ontario rose alarmingly from 1.3 cases per 1,000 people to 19.6 from 1996 to 2005. In comparison, those of European descent experienced a rise of 24 per cent — from 7.8 to 10 cases per 1,000 people over the same period.
PHILIP RAPHAEL/SPECIAL TO THE NEWS
Raymond Wong is one of many people of Chinese origin struggling with modern day diets.
Iris Lui, Canadian Diabetes Association’s Chinese community coordinator for B.C., said there are a number of theories for the increase. Some point to a genetic link in the Chinese population and a so-called “thrifty gene” which in times of famine in China made inhabitants readily store fat for periods when food was scarce. Match that with today’s more sedentary lifestyles, and access to an array of food supplies that can often include high-calorie, high-fat content, and the setting is ripe for people to gain weight and heighten the risk of developing diabetes, Lui said. Diabetes Wellness Day runs from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Fraserview MB Church, 11295 Mellis Dr.

Mounties on the hunt for drug smuggling suspect
Rookie Wat bags a double BY PHILIP RAPHAEL
Rookie MLA Teresa Wat is planning to tap into her experience in organizing trade missions to Asia and her multilingual talents after being named to Christy Clark’s cabinet last Friday. Wat, who easily won the seat for the B.C. Liberal Party in the Richmond Centre riding on May 14, was made minister responsible for International Trade and Multiculturalism. At the official swearing in at Government House in Victoria Monday, Wat said she became emotional. “I was almost on the verge of tears,” said Wat from Victoria. “As an immigrant, I am really proud to be a Canadian. And that speaks a lot about the opportunity in Canada and British Columbia.” Wat added, her accomplishment is a good example for other immigrants to embrace integration. “I think there’s a great opportunity for them to also contribute to society, even if they are part of the first generation of immigrants,” Wat said.
PHILIP RAPHAEL/FILE PHOTO
New Richmond Centre MLA Teresa Wat has been handed a cabinet role by Premier Christy Clark.
Directly following the ceremony Wat and her fellow, newly minted cabinet ministers held their first meeting. “It’s really a great privilege and an honour. I really didn’t expect such a big portfolio. But I am really excited, and very humbled to have been given this opportunity to work in the Legislature for the people of British Columbia,” Wat said. “This is really fitting with my experience and my passion, as well.” During the Glen Clark-led NDP
government of the 1990s, Wat led a trade delegation for the province to China. And later, when she was working for a multicultural radio station, she organized a second trip. As for what her first moves will be in the new positions, Wat said it is too early to talk about any fine details. “To be honest, I have not even had a chance to talk with my staff,” she said, “and I am looking forward to learning more about the file before I can say anything.” While overseeing two ministries may seem like a large task for a rookie politician, Wat said she plans to also keep her local constituents at the forefront. “Definitely, my priority is still with my constituents,” Wat said. “I have to see how I can share my time between my constituency and portfolio. But of course, I was elected by my constituents and my primary responsibilities lie with them. I will definitely not forget about them.” With much of her ministry staff situated in Vancouver, Wat said that would ease her schedule somewhat by limiting trips to the provincial capital mostly when the house sits.
Police are asking for help in tracking down Daniel Thomas Dwyer, who’s suspected of smuggling marijuana through YVR.
Richmond Mounties are on the lookout for man wanted in connection with smuggling marijuana through YVR. Daniel Thomas Dwyer, 49, was arrested on Nov. 8 last year YVR after Richmond RCMP’s Airport Crime Unit found 27 kilograms of marijuana in his luggage. However, Dwyer, of Delta, failed to attend court last week to face a charge of possession of a controlled substance for the
purposes of trafficking and a warrant was issued for his arrest. Dwyer is described as a Caucasian male, five foot five inches tall, 201 pounds, heavy build, fair complexion, short brown hair, hazel eyes and a goatee. If you’ve seen Dwyer or if you know of his whereabouts, call Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212. If you wish to remain anonymous, all Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Officer lied in court: Rioter BY SAM COOPER The Province
Stanley Cup rioter Camille Cacnio testified Monday that a Vancouver police officer lied at her trial and that she received poor medical care when she was arrested for breaching sentencing conditions. Cacnio, 24, a UBC student and Burnett secondary grad, was given a suspended sentence in September 2012 for looting two pairs of pants during the 2011 Stanley Cup riot, and had been ordered to abide by an overnight curfew for the first year of her sentence. Shortly after the riot Cacnio was diagnosed with conditions of depression and anxiety, the court heard. Before Cacnio took the stand Monday, her lawyer, Jason Tarnow, said his client’s “life fell apart the morning after the riot.” “In my head, I have a lot of suicidal thoughts,” Cacnio told Tarnow. “All I can think about is life and death ... a number of times I have hurt myself.” Attempting to explain why she broke her curfew on the night of Jan. 5, 2013, Cacnio said she had a sudden anxiety attack while dining out with her boyfriend that night. Cacnio said she decided it would be best to drive to her cousin’s house in Burnaby to get medication she had left there. When she was pulled over at a Vancouver police roadside check in the 900-block Powell
Camille Cacnio has denied breaching her curfew, which was part of her Stanley Cup riot sentence.
Street, she lied several times to an officer about her drinking at dinner, the court heard. She was issued a roadside test and blew .009, well below the legal limit of .08. Const. Barry Selver then ran her name on a police computer and arrested her for the curfew breach. Selver has testified that Cacnio was swearing at her boyfriend from the back seat of Selver’s cruiser. On Monday, Cacnio claimed she was telling her boyfriend to leave his phone on, and that she loved him. “The police officer lied completely during court ... 100 per cent,” Cacnio said Monday. The Crown attempted to discredit Cacnio’s claims that she did not receive proper medical attention in jail, and that she was in grave danger at the time of the probation breach and in following days. Cacnio, who lived in Richmond until recently, was the first female Stanley Cup rioter to be sentenced. She was spared jail time after the sentencing judge felt she had suffered enough at the hands of social media. —With a file from Richmond News

Forgetfulness feeds war Another D-Day anniversary has come and gone. This one was the 69th, and generally, not too much ado was made of it. The in-between anniversaries get less and less attention. The Second World War is now far enough in the past that serious note is only taken every five years — soon we’ll only bother at 10-year intervals, or not at all. Anybody remember the end date of the Napoleonic Wars? Perhaps a handful of history majors do, but wars tend to lose their lustre after a 100 years or so, after all those who experienced them have passed into faded memories themselves. But that’s precisely why we should remember important dates like June 6, 1944. And we should forestall the growing misconception that that date marks the end of the Second World War. It wasn’t the end at all. Not even close. Indeed, it barely marked the beginning of the end stage of the war. The trek across Europe from the beaches of Normandy claimed tens of thousands of lives over the course of nearly a year, before the European armistices were signed — Italy on April 29, 1945, and the rest of Western Europe on May 7, 1945. Tens of thousands more had yet to die before the curtain was drawn on the Pacific theatre on Sept. 2, 1945. Those are dates that hardly anyone brings immediately to mind. Perhaps they are more mundane than the date that launched the largest-ever sea-borne military assault - an assault that was not anywhere near as successful as we are commonly led to believe through movies and popular history. But even the attention that D-Day commands is dwindling, as forgetfulness seems to grow. along with war. — Langley Advance editorial
Teach drivers to share road Open letter to a motorist, I was returning home on a beautiful sunny day by bicycle after attending the Annual Island City Bike Tour when you almost ran me over in the crosswalk. As you brushed perilously close by me doing a left turn on Westminster and No. 5 Road, you shouted out of your window, “You’re just a bike!” I don’t understand what you mean by that? Did you think my life is worth less than yours because you’re in a car? Do you think my choice to be healthy and environmentally friendly today is a lesser choice than your decision to drive a car? Do you think you can bully me because you’re in a vehicle that weighs 100 times more than mine? I am a motorist, a motorcyclist, a cyclist and a pedestrian. I know how to share the road. Everything I needed to learn was from kindergarten, right? Maybe you can learn to share, too! I am thankful that Richmond has improved many roads for cyclists, and I hope our city will continue to organize bike tours. I also want to thank the friendly and helpful volunteers who offered information and insight to our biking community. I also hope we will have some more community events to help educate our drivers to be more aware of what sharing the road means. Emmy Richmond

Premier proves adept at cabinet shuffle One of Premier Christy Clark’s frustrations for the past two years has been her struggle to put a new face on her government, to clearly show she was in charge and that there was a clear separation from the Gordon Campbell era. Winning an election outright did just that. And so does the make-up of her post-election cabinet. Clark displayed a deft touch in ensuring old hands remain at the cabinet table, while at the same time bringing in fresh faces that will help change the public image of the government. Rich Coleman, Shirley Bond and Mike de Jong were mainstays of previous B.C. Liberal government cabinets and they will be in Clark’s government as well. But their public profile may be lowered somewhat, allowing other, lesser known names to emerge as the new face of the B.C. Liberals. For example, Bond is moving from the justice portfolio to the jobs ministry. She won’t have the same airtime as jobs minister, even though the portfolio is a key one in government. Instead, the new justice minister — former Vancouver city councillor Suzanne Anton — is the person who is about to become very well known with the public. Anton is an interesting choice as justice minister and attorney-general. As a former Crown counsel, she obviously has a legal background but she did

not distinguish herself at Vancouver city hall. Nevertheless, she will have ample opportunity to impress (or stumble) in her new high-profile role. Coleman will continue in a senior position, but he no longer has responsibilities for gaming or liquor, which keeps him out of the news. Another new face that will have a high profile is Peter Fassbender, the mayor of Langley and now a Surrey MLA. He was a provocative choice as education minister, and soon he will be squaring off against the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, which is sure to thrust him into the limelight. I’m told Fassbender’s appointment caught the BCTF leadership off guard. He’s no stranger to big responsibilities — he helped negotiate B.C.’s RCMP contract and played a key role in formulating transit policy in Metro Vancouver — and the BCTF will find him no pushover. Another newcomer you’ll be hearing and seeing a lot of is Todd Stone, the Kamloops MLA who is now the transportation minister. It’s a portfolio that’s mostly about good news and big announcements involving lots of money for
various projects, and it usually attracts a fair amount of media coverage. Finally, while not a new face, Terry Lake’s profile is about to grow. He’s the new health minister, which has a whole higher level of challenges, many of which are never far away from the six o’clock news. So Clark has cleverly kept some key veterans at her side, while ensuring newcomers like Anton, Fassbender and Stone take over from Bond and Coleman as the dominant faces of government. Clark can now say the Campbell era is well and truly over, and her own era is just beginning. Furthermore, a looming war with B.C.’s doctors may be averted with the removal of Graham Whitmarsh as deputy health minister and the bringing in of Stephen Brown to replace him. Whitmarsh was on a collision course with the B.C. Medical Association, as he wanted to delve into the explosive area of doctors’ financial compensation. Brown, who had been the deputy minister of in children and families, had been in the health ministry previously and was able to successfully negotiate deals with the BCMA. The highly-regarded Brown will likely defuse what appeared to be growing tensions between the two parties. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.

Letters Computer scams not so uncommon The Editor, Recently, I was the victim of a computer scam. Most people feel silly and don’t talk about this, but I want to warn others that unscrupulous people are out there trying to catch seniors because we don’t think quickly enough to get ourselves out of trouble. Answering the telephone at 4 a.m. to be told that my computer was dangerous and could ruin other computers was not a good start to my day. I hung up on the man and tried not to worry. A few hours later, I was waiting for a call to tell me what time to expect a delivery. When the phone rang again, I lifted the receiver without even looking at the caller ID. The caller said he was with Microsoft and as he spoke with an Indian accent, I assumed he was from India, so I believed him, as so many calls for help are sourced to India.
He told me about my dangerous computer and that all of the people on my contact list could have their computers ruined, so I went along with his offer to fix the problem. It did not bother me to find that he had complete charge of my computer without my permission, as he worked for Microsoft. For a few weeks, I had been getting strange messages when I needed help to open files. He even told me off for deleting these, as they were trying to help me and that was wrong of me. He sent all kinds of messages, but they flashed on and off so quickly that I couldn’t read the names correctly. This was confusing and after he finished, it took a little while for me to realize I had been taken in by a scam. My first reaction was not to tell anyone because I had been so stupid. I also knew that I needed help. I phoned a family member who advised me
to contact the bank right away to stop any payment. We phoned the non-emergency number for the police as this was a case of fraud and had to be treated as such. They assured me that I am not stupid or silly and that I would be surprised at the number of people who are caught by one scam or another. These are very clever people who prey on others by outsmarting them. I learned too late that Microsoft never makes a call to individual computer owners. This has led to a nightmare of changing my credit card and all of my bank passwords, as well as changing every password on my computer. Please, fellow seniors, as we are the ones being targeted, if you get a strange message on your computer, delete it right away and don’t feel guilty. If you get a weird phone call, hang up. It’s better than feeling the loss
The Senate, in its current form, has outlived its usefulness. It is a waste of more than $91 million of tax payers’ hard-earned money year after year. Getting rid of the Senate will require a constitutional amendment, which may be almost impossible to achieve. Provinces like Ontario and Quebec, as well as the Maritimes, are unlikely to agree to any measures to get rid of this white elephant.
Getting an equal, effective and elected Senate is also likely to go nowhere. Under these circumstances, the only viable option seems to be to stop making any new appointments to the Senate. Ultimately, at some point in the future, we will have no one sitting in the Red Chamber. That will give Canadians an opportunity to explore suitable options that will make sense.

Canada doesn’t need a Senate The Editor, The latest developments with respect to the Canadian Senate indicate that this relic of the past should be put to rest. Ridiculous out-of-town housing and travel claims by a number of Senators have again cast a shadow on this chamber of sleepy second thought. A number of attempts to reform the senate in the past have failed miserably. Similarly, any more efforts to reform it won’t go anywhere.

Ghee: Slowly, clarified butter used to season variety of meals Continued from page 10 balls. The mixture will be crumbly, but as it continues to cool, the balls will firm up. If you find your mixture too crumbly to form balls, add a bit more ghee. 6. Store in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. (Adapted from Singh’s pinni recipe)
Ghee is a slowly clarified butter commonly used in South Asian cooking. When butter is cooked slowly to make ghee, the water evaporates and the protein solids harden, turn brown, and sink to the bottom, leaving behind a clarified golden butterfat with a nutty aroma, making it ideal for frying
and sautéing. Ghee can be kept in a cool, dry place for up to two months; in the refrigerator for up to four months, and in the freezer for up to six months. Ingredients: 1 lb unsalted butter Directions: 1. Cut butter into quarters and place in a heavy-bottomed stockpot. Over medium heat, melt butter slowly, stirring it frequently and ensuring it does not brown. When butter has fully melted, increase heat and bring to a boil. 2. When the surface is covered with frothy bubbles, stir gently and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook uncovered and undisturbed until the protein solids have turned golden brown in colour and have sunk to the bottom
of the pot (about one hour). The top will have developed a thin dry crust and the ghee will be golden and transparent in appearance. 3. Using a slotted skimmer or large metal spoon, gently remove the thin crust and set it
aside. Remove the pan from the heat and gently pour the ghee through a cheesecloth-lined strainer into a clean bowl, ensuring that you do not pour the golden solids as well. 4. When the ghee has cooled thoroughly, pour into a clean, sterilized jar and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Note: The thin crust and protein solids that were set aside during the ghee-making process can be kept covered in the fridge for several days and mixed in to flavour other foods such as sauces, vegetables and soups. Adapted from Yamuna Devi’s Ghee Recipe. The Art of Indian Vegetarian Cooking. New York: Dutton, 1999. Dora Ho is a culinary arts instructor at McNair secondary and will be participating in the Ride to Conquer Cancer this weekend.

Serve up perfect gift With Father’s Day right around the corner, step up to something that will come in handy every time your dad (or anyone else) fires up the grill. The grilling experts at Broil King have some suggestions for every type of grill master, so take a look at these: The Neat Freak: For the dad who likes to keep the grill spotless before and after a meal, a heavy duty grid brush is a must. Recommended is one with a “grime guard.” Broil King says it will keep the grill clean as well as your grill master. Pair it with a biodegradable grill cleaner. The Family Man: Trying to balance adult meals with kid-friendly choices can be tricky, but burger presses and grill baskets make it easy to accommodate everyone. Sliders are the perfect size for little hands, and a basket that can grill at least six at time will help keep hungry mouths fed. A stuffed burger press is perfect for creating unique flavour combinations for the adults. Try Greek burgers stuffed with feta cheese, roasted red pepper, and spinach. The Enthusiast: Consider a pair of heavy stainless steel pork claws. Broil King’s experts claim they make shredding pork a walk in the park. The Entertainer: Items

pizza stone helps backyard chefs prepare and serve an authentic pizza pie. For the dad who has it all, explore the wide range of rubs, marinades and wood chips available.
Fun facts about a man’s tie Ties remain one of the top gift ideas for men, particularly when Father’s Day arrives. Despite the emergence of casual, dress-down days in the workplace, ties remain popular and practical gifts. They are a go-to fashion choice for dressing up a wardrobe and especially prized for special events and to denote rank within organizations. As commonplace as ties may be, certain facts surrounding their use and origin are widely unknown. Here are eight fun facts about the necktie: 1. The original people to wear neckties were soldiers in the Croatian army. The silk scarf tie

The city of Shengzhou is one of the world’s largest tie producers, exporting more than 200 million ties worldwide. 8. A person who collects ties is known as a “grabatologist.”

Brina’s Army marches for Relay for Life BY ALAN CAMPBELL
Sabrina Schmidt marches to the beat of her own drum.

Richmond rower in the fast lane for success
It has taken just two years for McMath student Hillary Schaap to establish herself among the best juniors in the province BY M ARK B OOTH
Hilary Schaap is hoping her “worker’s tan” won’t be obvious in her strapless dress for McMath secondary school’s graduation dinner and dance on Saturday night. Such is one of the worries when you happen to be one of the top up-and-coming rowers in the province. If being student council president and preparing for final exams wasn’t enough on Schaap’s plate, she somehow found the time to compete at last week’s Canadian Secondary Schools Rowing Championships in St. Catherines, ON. Schaap continued her outstanding season by placing third in the junior women’s singles event. She also attended a three-day national junior team selection camp — an invitation she had earned based on her previous results including trials held in B.C. this spring. Her transition into an elite junior rower is an impressive one. She didn’t take up the sport until two summers ago. “What Hilary has accomplished is not typical,” explained Garret Bouhuyzen-Wegner, head coach of the Delta Deas Rowing Club (DDRC). Once every two or
three years we are maybe sending one or two of our rowers to nationals. She was an exceptional athlete before she came to us. A lot of kids who are successful have that already.” Schaap excelled in other sports when she decided to give rowing a try and signed-up for DDRC’s learn-to-row program. Soon after, she was on a plane to England to watch her brother Colin compete for Canada at the 2011 World Junior Championships. He is now part of the powerhouse program at Northeastern University in Boston where he was a member of the Open Four crew that recently placed second at Nationals. “Watching him (compete at Junior Worlds) just inspired me,” said Schaap prior to one of her five-times-a-week training sessions on the Deas Slough. “I’m so proud of everything he has done. When I got back home, I really got into it. “What I like about rowing is it’s a team sport but, at the same time, you get as much out of it as you put into it. I was excited just to get an invite to the national junior camp. We’ll see what happens (with selections) but realistically my goal is competing for B.C. at the Canada Summer

(Bottom left) Schaap receives some on course advice from her coach Garret Bouhuyzen-Wegner. Games.” What wasn’t in Schaap’s favour at the junior camp is her size. She is technically a lightweight rower and there is no classification for team selection. But that didn’t stop her from dominating her race at last month’s prestigious Brentwood Regatta, then repeating the performance a week later at DDRC’s own scholastic event. “The biggest thing Hilary has going for her is her drive,” added Bouhuyzen-Wenger. “She is fiercely competitive and driven to be ahead of everyone. It’s evident she has always been a competitive athlete.”
Western University has taken notice. The London, ON school has one of the top rowing programs in the country and that’s where Schaap will be continuing her education this fall — studying Business Management and Organizational Studies. The Mustangs train on Fanshawe Lake which also happens to home of the national women’s team program. If her plans go accordingly, Schaap will report for training camp soon after representing B.C. at the Summer Games in Quebec. “I got to tour their boathouse last summer and to be where the national team trains is pretty exciting,” she said.”
Bantam Chuckers ace tosses no hitter and strikes out 16
Tyler Hoefer was near perfection for the Richmond Bantam AAA Chuckers. Making his first start in nearly a month, the ace right-hander pitched a no-hitter over six innings as the Chuckers rolled to a 100 victory over North Island on Saturday at Blundell Field. Hoefer issued just a single walk and struck out 16 as Richmond broke up a tight game with three runs in the fourth inning and five more in the sixth. He lowered his ERA to 0.67 with 75 strikeouts in 31 innings pitched.
Isaiah Hayes and Mitchell Rennie paced the attack with three RBIs each. Spencer Rankin added a pair of hits and three stolen bases. The Chuckers capped a successful weekend homestand by sweeping a pair from Nanaimo on Sunday — 17-7 and 19-10. Hoefer led the way in the opener, this time at the plate with six RBIs and a long
two-run homer. Logan Newman added a double and three RBIs to go with his three hits. Noah Or and Isaiah Hayes also enjoyed three hit outings. Nathan Nerona got the win on the mound. The nightcap saw the hosts pound out 20 hits, scoring seven times in the second and four more in
the third to overcome an early 5-2 deficit. Newman capped his productive day with three more hits and three runs. Ryder Mavis added three runs on two hits while Marc Ashford and Rennie had a couple of hits and two runs each. The Chuckers now stand at at 17-5 in the B.C. Minor Bantam AAA Baseball League, leaving them just a few percentage points back of front-running Vancouver. Richmond will have a stern test tonight in Cloverdale against the 17-6 Spurs.

Intermediates hosting showdown
Richmond Bantam A2 Roadrunners celebrate their first place finish at the Joe Reddmann Tournament in Kelowna.
Bantam Roadrunners avenge loss to capture Kelowna tournament Richmond Roadrunners Bantam A2 lacrosse team turned in an impressive performance in Kelowna to capture the Joe Reddmann Bantam Tournament. The Roadrunners opened their schedule against the host team and came through with a 9-5 win. The next morning against Penticton, the boys got off to a slow start before firing on all cylinders in a 9-4 triumph. Richmond then dropped an 11-4 decision to the Coquitlam Adanacs but still finished first in its pool — setting the stage for a rematch against the Adanacs. The team dug deep and came to play, grinding out a 3-2 victory to earn a spot
in the championship game against North Okanagan. The Roadrunners dominated from start to finish — rolling to an impressive 16-5 victory. The team was led offensively by Ryan Jensen, Joshua Bourne, and Taylor Dudlets. The defensive effort was keyed by the play of Jordan Roberts, Mitch Lavoie, and Kyle Ahlfield. Also enjoying a strong tournament were Brock Jung, Jacob Lorenz, Connor Sexsmith, Justin Preston, Hunter Van Hest, Ben Dickinson, Forrest Wheeler, Conor Dimmick and Quin Griffith. Goaltenders Sam Lowen and Diesel De Guzman were solid between the pipes.
5-1. Joshua McLaughlin paced the attack with three goals. Jonathan Carey scored twice, while singles went to Braeden Jensen, Nick Jensen and Pearson Willis. Tyler Vogrig chipped in with three assists while defensive standout Brad Hoffman added a pair. Boxla Bits... It was a productive week for Roadrunners goaltender Ryland Hood who backstopped the Delta Islanders to a pair of wins in the B.C. Junior “A” Lacrosse League including a 43-save performance in an 8-6 win over the Langley Thunder. Hood then turned aside 40 shots in Saturday’s 14-8 triumph against the Victoria Shamrocks. Hoffman was also called up for the Victoria game and was Delta’s top face-off man.
The Richmond Roadrunners are hoping to be back on top of the B.C. Intermediate “A” Lacrosse League standings after a pair of upcoming weekend games against Vancouver Island opponents. The Roadrunners (7-1) are back in action Saturday when they travel to Nanaimo to take on the the 1-8 Timbermen. The boys then return home Sunday afternoon (2 p.m.) for a huge encounter with the first place (8-1) Victoria Shamrocks. It will be the first of two meetings between the teams this season, with the return match slated for June 29 at Bear Mountain Arena. Richmond tuned up for the showdown with a hard-fought 8-5 home floor win over the Coquitlam Adanacs last week. The difference was a big second period for the hosts which saw them outscore the Adanacs
