The rise of the Fraser

by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter They’re the essence of perfect pies and many a muffin—and they’re ready for the picking at local farms. Blueberries are making a late appearance after a cool and wet start to the year, but the ubiquitous Richmond crop looks good, according to one grower. “It looks like a good season for production, despite the late start. If the sun continues to shine it will be OK,” said Humraj Kallu, operations manager at Canwest Farms Ltd. This week Canwest began selling local blueberries at its Farmers Market at Sidaway and Blundell roads. Besides picking, Canwest workers are preparing for another season of processing the famous fruit, which makes its way as far as Japan.

Known for their health benefits and middle-of-the-road sweetness, blueberries are the fruit Kallu grew up with. His family started growing here in 1979. “It’s been a part of my life ever since I was a little kid,” he said. “I usually mix them in a shake, but my sister makes a pretty good pie.” Some other longtime Richmond blueberry growers are waiting a few more days before starting to pick. “There’s a big crop sitting out there, and it’s going to come on all at once,” said Dave Sandhu, whose farm offers fresh sales, along with his patented dehydrated blueberries and other berry products. The season couldn’t come soon enough for foodies. Chef Alex Tung of Tapenade Bistro in Steveston has a few feature recipes up his sleeve, including blueberry clafoutis and blueberry and buttermilk panna cotta.

According to the B.C. Blueberry Council, over 8,100 hectares (20,000 acres) of farmland is in blueberry production, yielding almost 40 million kilograms of the fruit. B.C. is the largest producer of high-bush blueberries in Canada and the third producing region in the world. According to the City of Richmond, 335 hectares of Richmond farmland grow blueberries, accounting for nearly 15 per cent of locally grown food. Other growers now offering farm fresh sales include Blueberry Lane (7000 No. 5 Rd.) and Birak Berry Farm (9111 No. 6 Rd.). Growers whose product will soon be ready include Fishers Blueberry Farm (9351 No. 6 Rd.), Dave and Neeta Sandhu’s Cal-San farm (12791 Blundell Rd.) and KNN Blueberry Farms (11590 Granville Ave.).

A longtime resident made a pitch to city council this week to rename the No. 2 Road Bridge. Norman Wrigglesworth, a Second World War veteran, suggested Monday the 18-year-old Middle Arm span be named after war hero Ernest Alvia “Smokey” Smith. “I would like to know why all these bridges are named after federal politicians,” said Wrigglesworth. “Why can’t we have one named after a famous soldier?” Wrigglesworth is best known in Richmond for his ongoing campaign against smoking, having once outfitted his roof with a giant, custom-made no-smoking sign. Offering the name suggestion of “Smokey Smith Bridge” with a standing salute to council, Wrigglesworth offered to donate one month of his pension to engrave a new brass plaque on the bridge. Smith, born in New Westminster in 1914, was a private with the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada when he won the Victoria Cross in 1944 for his extraordinary actions at the Savio River in Italy during the Second World War.

Dykes and pumps keep residents high and dry With the Fraser River swelling due to heavy rains upriver, city watching water carefully by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter City crews were carefully monitoring Fraser River water levels around the clock on Wednesday and Thursday after the province issued a “high-streamflow advisory” that threatened to cause low-level flooding in parts of the Lower Mainland. But with its constantly inspected and maintained system of dykes around the city’s entire perimeter, there was little concern that Richmond would be impacted, City of Richmond spokesperson Kim Decker said. Romeo Bicego, manager of sewage and drainage for the City of Richmond, gave The Review a tour of the brand new pump station at the north end of No. 4 Road, which is designed with the future in mind and highlights the city’s focus on keeping locals safe and dry. Immediately east of the station is barren stretch of land that in the near future will become a multi-family residential condo and townhouse development site. City planners have designed the pumphouse to fit in seamlessly. Rather than just a bland, windowless, concrete structure with a steel door and roof, the new No. 4 Road pump station cost more than $3 million to build, and features an eye-catching architectural design. There’s floor-to-ceiling windows in the enclosure and a glass door that displays a stand-alone diesel generator capable of powering the pumps for 48 hours in the event of a power failure. The pump station also has separate men’s and ladies’ washrooms and a three-storey high viewing platform perched atop a bank of pumps, giving unobstructed views of the North Shore Mountains and the Fraser River. These pumps are serviced regularly, and

are raised via a built-in winch system akin to what’s seen at cargo dock facilities. As well, the station highlights the brains behind the pumping system, a bank of computers that constantly give city staff current information about river levels, among other things. Bicego said it wasn’t that long ago when back-up generators had to be trucked to pumping stations when trouble was forecasted. Now, many of the city’s 38 stations have these gen-

erators permanently on site and are remotely operated. All combined, the city’s pumps can displace more than one million gallons per minute, the equivalent of emptying 40 large swimming pools every 60 seconds. The city’s dikes are constructed to level two feet higher than the highest recorded level in 1894, known as a one-in-200-year standard. The higher-than-usual river levels are blamed on heavier-than-normal rainfall through the

upper portions of the Fraser River watershed and North Thompson River late last week and weekend. More rain was forecast for the Upper Fraser watershed and it was expected to cause another rise in river levels through Prince George around the end of the week or the start of the weekend, with the surge working its way downstream to the Lower Mainland by early next week. —with files from Black Press

Orbis’ flying hospital sinks into pavement Tweets, however, report ‘aircraft down,’ and ‘plane goes off taxiway’ at Vancouver airport by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter An Orbis DC-10 flying hospital sank into the pavement at Vancouver International Airport’s South Terminal on Wednesday afternoon. The incident occurred around 1 p.m. and saw the DC-10 plane’s rear right wheels become stuck when it sank about 12 inches into the collapsed section of pavement. YVR spokesperson Alana Lawrence said ground crews were dispatched to try to remove fuel from the airplane in order to reduce its weight and extract it. “There are no impacts to safety, security or flight operations at YVR,” Lawrence wrote in an e-mail. While the incident wasn’t exactly pulsepounding, the reporting about it was much more fascinating, and telling of the power, perils and pitfalls of social media like Twitter. The first report of the incident online was

by ScanBC, which announced on Twitter. com: “#YVR and #Richmond firefighters dealing with an aircraft off the runway with fuel leaking.” CBC’s Tom Harrington then tweeted: “The release: BCC| Richmond| Aircraft Down| | Vancouver Intl Airport|ERS/RFRS o/s airplane off runway into grass, no injs, fuel leak| 13:06” YVR then denied the incident: “Hey @cbctom - no such incident at YVR. Operations running smoothly here today. GlobalBC then tweeted: “BREAKING NEWS: DC-10 cargo plane goes off taxiway at YVR, sinks into grass. Fuel being unloaded to minimize sinking. No passengers on board.” That was followed 10 minutes later by GlobalBC with: “UPDATE: Asphalt on taxiway gives way at YVR, rear tire of “Orbis” plane sinking 12” into pavement. Fuel removed as crews try to move plane.” YVR a minute later then tweeted: “To clarify: A wheel of a plane on a private apron sunk into pavement at YVR. Fuel being removed to lessen weight. No impact to ops.” So the plane’s run-in with what was the equivalent to an asphalt pothole went from a huge story, to no story, to a funny story, to a story about the perils of reporting with only partial and uncorroborated information. But as the adage goes, there’s no such thing as bad publicity. The Orbis flying eye hospital is in Vancouver

for a Thursday media event aimed at raising the profile of the plane and the work done by doctors who fly around the developing world to fight preventable blindness. Orbis Canada is a non-aligned, non-profit global development organization that has

No. 2 Road Bridge was named after a contest From Page 1 According to Veterans Affairs Canada, the Seaforth Highlanders led an attack across the river, which torrential rain had caused it to rise nearly two metres in five hours, making it impossible to get tanks and anti-tank guns across to support rifle companies. A company was suddenly counterattacked by three enemy tanks sup-

ported by self-propelled guns and 30 infantry. Smith single-handedly drove back the German attack, a turning point that led to the success of the whole operation. Smith left the army with a rank of sergeant and died in 2005. He was the last surviving recipient of the Victoria Cross, Canada’s highest award for valour.

City council took no action Monday. But Coun. Greg Halsey-Brandt, who met Smith in Victoria when the war hero was presented with the Order of B.C., noted a contest in 1993 to name the bridge. “I was surprised the vast majority wanted to call it the No. 2 Road Bridge,” he said. Among the few hundred entries,

“No. 2 Road” and forms of received 41 votes. The other most popular entry involved the Blair name—with 62 responses honouring either Gil Blair or Archie Blair, both former civic politicians. Lulu Island and forms of the name received 38 votes. Halsey-Brandt and forms of his name received 13 votes.

Residents of 2,000 Vancouver homes could soon see garbage collection reduced to once every two weeks and green waste pickup become weekly, but so far Richmond isn’t making the shift. Vancouver is mulling a pilot project in two neighbourhoods to reduce the amount of trash that heads to the landfill. “We certainly have contemplated going to the every other week pickup for garbage, but it’s not something we’re looking at doing right away,” said Ted Townsend, spokesperson for the City of Richmond.

Richmond started its $640,000 Green Can program in April 2010, allowing food scraps to be picked up with yard trimmings at single-family homes. City officials are allowing time for residents to adjust to the program before changing garbage and food scrap pickup frequencies. Earlier this year Richmond began a pilot project to expand its Green Can program to multi-family dwellings. Approximately 3,200 townhouses will get food scraps pickup until at least the end of the year, when staff will evaluate whether or not to move to a city-wide program. “Down the road maybe we’ll look at going to every other week for garbage pickup, but we’re a ways away from that,” said Townsend. Homeowners have been slow to adjust to recycling table scraps, chicken bones and pizza boxes instead of throwing them into the trash. According to a recent staff report, the city fell nearly 1,000 tonnes short of its target in the first year to divert food scraps from the landfill. But Suzanne Bycraft believes the numbers are trending in the right direction. In her report, the manager of environmental programs said in the first two months of 2011—when most of the green waste is food scraps—the city collected 200 more tonnes at the curb compared to the same period a year earlier. Garbage volume also dropped in 2010 by 2,039 tonnes. Metro Vancouver aims to ban organic food waste and soiled papers from disposal by single-family homes by the end of 2012, coinciding with the deadline for all Metro cities to introduce curbside pickup of all organics. For most cities, cutting garbage collection to every two weeks will be a way to save costs and help pay for more frequent weekly pickup of compostable organics. Metro officials plan to extend the organics ban to businesses and multifamily housing in 2015. According to Metro Vancouver, organics account for an estimated 40 per cent of all garbage in the region and diverting 265,000 tonnes of it is expected to get the region half way to its 70 per cent recycling target.

EDITORIAL: More pain at the pump

M

ore pain at the pump is imminent, as the regional mayors’ council has decided the way to finance TransLink’s long-awaited Evergreen Line to Coquitlam is to ding motorists an extra two cents per litre when they fuel up.

The proposed measure – increasing the gas tax take for the transit authority from the current 15 cents to 17 cents effective next April – has the agreement of the provincial government. This is on top B.C.’s carbon tax on gas, which just went up on July 1 to 5.56 cents a litre. (It will rise again to 6.67 cents per litre in 2012). In fact, feeding government coffers now account for onethird of the cost of a litre of fuel, with Metro Vancouver motorists paying the highest gas taxes in Canada. No one welcomes user fees, but how to fund much-needed services, such as the Evergreen Line and other transit expansions? Here’s one suggestion: ICBC. The profitable publicly owned auto insurer has boasted healthy reserves over the years – topping $3 billion in 2010 – and hefty annual profits continue to stack up, mainly from investments. (The money comes out of the optional insurance side of ICBC’s business, where the corporation competes with private insurers). In prior years, ICBC issued re-

If ICBC’s successful track record is any indication, and if ideology dictates that those who use the roads should pay for them, then what better way to finance transportation projects than with surplus ICBC shareholder dollars?

bate cheques to drivers to help spread the wealth, but has so far resisted calls from taxpayer groups and unions to lower insurance rates or boost ICBC workers’ wages. Of course, that hasn’t stopped Victoria from raiding the kitty. In a controversial move last year, the B.C. Liberals funnelled $487 million from ICBC’s cash reserves into general revenue to help offset the provincial deficit. What’s more, budget docu-

ments filed last spring showed the province intends to extract around $145 million annually from ICBC, starting this year. That’s more than triple the $40 million in revenue that is expected to come each year from the proposed two-cent gas tax hike for TransLink. If ICBC’s successful track record is any indication, and if ideology dictates that those who use the roads should pay for them, then what better way to

finance transportation projects than with surplus ICBC shareholder dollars? Vehicle levies, property tax increases, road pricing and bridge tolls pale in comparison to the hundreds of millions of dollars already forked over by B.C. motorists. It’s time to redirect this particular cash cow from the finance minister’s pasture to the people’s pavement. —Surrey Leader

o you recall a movie that brought tears to your eyes or filled you with great hope?

Film is such a powerful tool for conveying messages and I’m a huge movie buff, especially foreign films and documentaries. Before my children were born, my husband and I lived in Yaletown and we had memberships at Fifth Avenue Cinema. We were also regulars at the Vancouver Film Festival. When we moved to Richmond, we had to leave that behind us. The cost of babysitting

alone was enough of a deterrent but so was driving to venues across the bridge. I really missed having easy access to alternative films, those that you couldn’t see in mainstream movie theatres. I chalked it up to living in the ’burbs where we had plenty of parks and great schools, but not so much in terms of art movies. Recently, however, I sense a change in the cinema scene in Richmond. Kudos go to local organization, Cinevolution Media Arts for developed a number of film festivals in Richmond. This year, Your Kontinent is a five-day event from July 21-24 that will feature movie screenings in unique locations around Richmond. Can’t wait to catch the Dim Sum movie screening or see what a movie screening inside is shipping container is like. On Sunday, July 17th, I’ll be participating in a panel discussion with other notables after the screening of Ashes to Honey at 2

p.m. at City Hall. The movie highlights the impact of a proposed nuclear power plant on a fishing and farming village in Japan. It’s pretty eerie thinking about what kind of arguments people would have made to support nuclear power, not knowing that Fukushima was only months away. I see lots of parallels between this Japanese community’s fight and our own against the YVR jet fuel pipeline. That’s the power of film. We don’t need to experience our own Fukushima to know what unacceptable risk looks like. I’m so into movies that I’ve helped form the Richmond chapter of Cinema Politica. We’ve been screening documentaries on a monthly basis at Ralph Fisher Auditorium at Richmond Hospital. The next screening is on Thursday, July 21 at 7 p.m. and the movie title is H2OIL. A panel discussion afterwards will include fisheries biologist Otto Langer and local activist Carol Day.

Details are available at www.cinemapolitica.org/ richmond. If you are interested in making your own movies, Cinevolution also hosts a number of filmmaking workshops at the Richmond Cultural Centre. Check out their new digs on the site of the former gift shop. Also, stay tuned for contest announcements for young people to make their own food-related short films. We’re just finalizing dates, details, and prizes. From digital storytelling projects to full-length film festivals, Richmond is growing as a cultural hub for movies. I no longer have to yearn to go to screenings in far-off theatres. In fact, I know many Vancouverites who are now making the trip to Richmond to see all that we have to offer now. We’ve come a long way. Arzeena Hamir is coordinator of the Richmond Food Security Society. Reach her at arzeenahamir@shaw.ca.

letters City helps mom in wheelchair overcome a challenge Editor: In light of recent events, the damage and destruction that happened in downtown Vancouver, I wanted to write a letter describing something positive that happened right here in our city of Richmond. I recently moved into Westwind, a small, older subdivision in Steveston. I am a mother of a 22-month-old, and I am a quadriplegic. I use a motorized wheelchair for my mobility, and when we go strolling into the village, quite often my son is in his stroller. On moving into our area I realized that there were no curb cuts to allow us to walk safely into the village as well as to the elementary school we will be attending in a few years. I moved to this area so that I could have my independence, walking to shops, taking my son to school on my own. I decided to call the Richmond Centre for Disability early in the year hoping that they could help. They apparently work closely with the city on these types of issues, and within a few weeks I had a phone call from a city planner asking to meet to determine where I would need my curb cuts. We met in the spring of this year and they promised I would be “walking” to Steveston safely by the first day of summer. Within the first week of June they were out there working, and much to my surprise and relief it was completed before the first day of summer! Amazingly, I have since met more people in my neighbourhood—one with Parkinson’s, an older lady with a walker—and all were excited it had been done. In short, I recommend anyone with a disability or a problem such as mine, to contact the Richmond Centre for Disability or the city. With all the challenges I face as a quadriplegic mother, at least I know one challenge has been overcome, thanks to the City of Richmond. Brandy Cook Richmond

Government cannot afford to give teachers a big raise Editor: Don’t you feel complete sympathy for our B.C. teachers’ contract demands, who at this time only get paid $47,000 to $75,ooo for a 10-month work year, and of course that doesn’t include their wonderful, rich pensions. Isn’t it fair that our government step up and offer more money, more time off to these over-stressed teachers and give them 10 days off for bereavement leave and 26 weeks off for compassionate leave? And of course these demands are truly for the benefit of our children. And hey don’t worry this is only going to cost us taxpayers $2.2 billion

each year. Sure we can cover that cost. Here’s reality check: our debt right now is going through the roof, and just like every other public sector worker, B.C. teachers are already paid well, have extremely healthy pensions, and as usual at every negotiating time, want more. Your greed is most disturbing. Let’s take a look at the private sector worker. No salary increases in years, longer unpaid hours, and of course no guarantees of permanent work for years like you, and certainly no early retirement. The fact of the matter is our governments cannot afford to approve any further increases to any of

our public workers’ demands. If they do we will once again be offloading our debt to our children, with the end result we will be bankrupt like many of the European countries. In conclusion I know in most cases teachers do a wonderful job, they are committed to providing great learning experiences to our children (I should know I have a wife and daughter who are teachers), but just because on the whole you do a great job, does not entitle you to more money, and as I said earlier you are paid pretty well for the job you do.

A TRIBUTE

Better bike lanes needed

MILAN ILICH The management and staff of the Peace Arch Duty Free Shop are deeply saddened on the passing of our company director, Milan Ilich. It has been a privilege and inspiration to have Milan as a director and partner, and through his cooperation and encouragement, we were successful in building one of the largest land border duty free shops in the world. We convey to Maureen, Laurie, Rick and family our deepest sympathy on this very sad occasion.

Editor: The City of Richmond needs to make adjustments to its bicycle system. Some major roads, such as No. 2 Road, have partial bike lanes that do not really connect to other parts of the city. Bikers would be able to move around more efficiently if the medians on No. 2 Road in between Westminster Highway and Granville Avenue were removed, the car lanes moved in, and marked bike lanes added. On another point, there are several routes shown in the “City of Richmond On-Street Cycling Network Plan” that are not actually marked as bicycle lanes. For example, Lynas Lane was one such road that was marked as an “existing bicycle route,” but there were no lane markings on the road to indicate that it is a dedicated bike lane. There might be green bike signs indicating that the road is part of the cycling system, but they do not provide any security that cars will not interfere with bikers. An obvious solution to this problem would be to create lanes that are reserved for the exclusive use of cyclists with pavement markings on such streets. Theodore Taam Richmond

Better Grades Happier Kids

HST vote: Don’t ‘cut off our noses to spite our faces’

Grade 1 - 12 Editor: My parents taught me to not “cut off your nose to spite your face.” Well, that is exactly what the anti-HST campaigners are aiming to do. The costs of unraveling the HST will be massive—repayment of $1.6 billion to Ottawa, expensive rebuilding of duplicate business collection systems and federal and provincial bureaucracies to manage and audit two taxes (as in, more government!). Low income rebates and tax cuts will be reversed. The hit to B.C.’s budget could be $4 billion.

Important services will likely be slashed or debt increased. The “accepted wisdom” is that the Campbell Liberals lied about the tax, but I have not seen any quotes or video clips from either Gordon Campbell or then finance minster Colin Hansen saying anything at all about a HST during the May 2009 election campaign. If such quotes existed, I expect that they would be played incessantly—but they are not. At worst, they may have “lied by omission.” There is no shortage of ironies in all this. First, Canadians

have a long record of rewarding lies. Most recently, Stephen Harper got a majority, notwithstanding broken promises on Senate appointments, income trusts and provincial equalization payments. “The people” aren’t angry with him. Second, it was under Bill Vander Zalm himself that the property transfer tax was introduced in 1988, without prior consultation with “the people.” That tax now takes up to $1 billion

It can start happening today! With Oxford’s personalized programs and low teacher-student ratio, your child will see results almost immediately. - Improved ConÀdence - Higher Self-Esteem

each year from BC home buyers. Third, the NDP and their union allies are fighting the HST. Many B.C. public sector union contracts are up this year. If they win, B.C.’s finances will crater. Who do they think will pay their contract demands! So be angry at the B.C. Liberals if you want, but the place to show that anger is at the ballot box, not now, out of spite—to our own faces.

Editor: I propose that the City of Richmond introduce a curfew for teens in order to combat teenage vandalism, drug use, and preventable car accidents. In San Jose, Calif., a person under the age of 16 cannot be in a public place within the city without adult supervision between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. I believe that this is quite reasonable because the curfew: a) prevents minors from wandering dangerous streets; b) lessens the chance of youth being hit by drunk drivers; and c) allows parents to not have to worry about their children getting in trouble at night.

I do not want to see innocent children becoming the accidental victims of violence, drug and alcohol abuse. Implementing a curfew will hopefully not only lead to safer neighbourhoods, but also establish effective communications between the authorities, parents, schools, and youth. This way, youth may have a better chance to access any help or counselling that they might need. As a teenager myself, I under-

stand that we all want to live our teenage lives to the fullest. I understand that young people yearn to party late into the night, to enjoy themselves and to have good time. Though not all youth who are out late are involved illegal activities, there are people out late who should not be around youth. I do not want to see innocent children becoming the accidental victims of violence, drug and alcohol abuse. My hope is not only for everyone to enjoy their adolescent years, but to also enjoy their many years to come. Katie Huang Richmond

Riot wounds can heal Editor: The Vancouver riot was a huge shame and disappointment to many people in this city. There were cars turned over and burning, people taunting the police, and people fighting each other. The whole riot was just foolish and only made a big damage on the calm and peaceful image of Vancouver. Ironically, Vancouver was voted as the nicest city in Canada as well. If it wasn’t for the riot, I might have accepted this title easily, now I am not so sure. However, there were still some people that gave me hope that Vancouver still has some pride left in it. For example, the people that cleaned up the streets the day after the riot are honourable and the true citizen heroes. Also, the rioters that turned themselves in to Vancouver police are honourable for their honesty. Even though the riot has caused a big scratch in Vancouver’s good image, I believe the scratch can heal and Vancouver will be once more one of the nice and peaceful cities in the world. Jennifer Lee Richmond

Parade float was OK Editor: I believe that writer Crystal Harte was more than a little hasty in complaining about an “abortion” float in the Canada Day parade (“Parade is no place for abortion debate,” July 8). I don’t recall seeing or hearing any mention of “abortion.” Nobody was celebrating abortion, of all things! I particularly enjoyed this float because of its support for adoption. The message was simply “Celebrate Life.” What could be more positive than that? That float felt good because I’m grateful for being adopted myself, and also for two wonderful adopted kids in my own life. C’mon, Miss Harte, there must be a life in your world worth celebrating!

Well, here it is. I’m happy to report that Harvey and I are about to celebrate our second wedding anniversary and the “best before” date is not even a dot on the horizon. I really believe that the insights we gain from each other make us

Going on vacation? Leave your home safe and secure. Summer vacation time is here, and many of us are planning on going away and enjoying some well-deserved relaxation.

For 2012, the Mercedes-Benz SLK 350 is extensively changed including styling reminiscent of the SLS AMG flagship. This is the Edition 1 model, only 15 of which will be available in a special matte finish.

Remember the Mercedes-Benz 190 SL? Probably not, but during the 1960s it was the little brother to the 300 SL Gullwing, the first modern supercar. Then something happened. The Gullwing was replaced by a myriad of SL models that were two-seaters but skewed to the bouffant set. At the same time, the baby Benz roadster vanished until 1996 when the SLK was announced. Here was a light, fast and, in AMG kit, a very formidable two-seater that left competitors like Porsche and BMW scrambling. Times are changed and the 300 SL Gullwing is back in spirit and reality in the form of the awesome SLS AMG that makes a statement and spits hubris just standing still. And for 2012, the little brother is back in the SLK 350 looking every bit like the SLS from its upright grille with prominent three-pointed star to the outside mirrors. There is no question the SLK is meant to be seen as kin to the SLS. Initially, there will be only one model with a 3.5-litre V6 on sale now to be followed in November by an AMG version (SLK 55 AMG) and an entry level model called the SLK 250. The 3,498 cc V6 produces 302 hp and 273 lb/ft of torque. With the 7G-Tronic Plus seven-speed automatic transmission, it goes from 0-100 km/h in 5.6 seconds with a top speed of 250 km/h thanks to all the latest engine technology such as third-generation direct injection, piezo injec-

Standard suspension on the SLK is Mercedes’ Dynamic Handling package with continuous adjustable damping. What it does is electronically control the fully automatic damping system that allows the vehicle to drive smoothly even on poor road surfaces and quell jarring while still offering high driving dynamics. Part of the package is the Direct-Steer system with Torque Vectoring Brakes developed by Mercedes-Benz. The Direct-Steer system offers more handling and agility than the standard steering, while also reducing the amount of physical effort required when parking. On a curve the rear wheel on the inside of the turn is braked slightly in relation to speed that results in a stabilizing the platform without overloading the suspension. On two days of solid driving I got lots of chances to test the system and, frankly, it was seamless. I couldn’t tell when it was being actuated or not despite being a tad more aggressive than I usually drive. It was probably the perfect car from just lopping along at the limit while gliding by countless lakes and the always inspiring Columbia Icefield. When it comes to passenger

safety, Mercedes-Benz arguably has been the leader and innovator in this area for decades. In the SLK, there are literally dozens of safety aids such as a drowsiness detection system called ATTENTION ASSIST that alerts the driver if the car detects the driver nodding off. And there is the optional anticipatory occupant protection system called PRE-Safe that can apply the brakes autonomously in the event of an impending rearend collision. The SLK 350 is a much more substantial roadster than the former model. Like the SLS, the hood is extended and it really helps the appearance. The flanks have been cleaned up and there is now a noticeable, muscular hind quarter to the rear wheels. It was done partly to improve the looks but also to make it more aero-efficient. Base price is $66,500 but, being a Mercedes-Benz, there are a number of options and accessories to personalize the SLK to personal taste. Aggressively priced, the new SLK 350 appeals to a much broader demographic than previous models with more features than youπd expect with levels of performance and handling to satisfy just about everyone.

Honda’s CBR250R looks big by Rob Beintema Special to Black Press

I

n building the CBR250R, Honda had used the kind of deceptive design that goes a long way to make a small bike look like a big bike. The wheelbase length of the 250cc engine is as long as that of the 600cc sport bike. The engine does not look puny. And the sleek layered fairing that wraps the bike most handsomely in the red and silver colour combo, is a trickle down tribute to the glossy VFR1200 that debuted to rave reviews last year. The CBR250R is a class act, cleverly camouflaged to look like something bigger, something built with enough road presence to earn respect. It is beautifully styled, screwed together with a handful of new design and engineering patents and with Honda’s usual attention to detail and is, as their promotional bumpf puts it, “far removed from the sort of cut-corners, parts-bin specials usually found in the segment.” The bike accelerates well, snicking nicely through its six-speeds with just a light touch on the clutch and shifter. There’s not enough power to get you into trouble, but enough to keep you out of trouble, if you know what I mean. The engine runs at around 6,000 rpm at 100 km/h and 7000 rpm at 120 km/h with enough reserve oomph under the 10,500 rpm redline to allow for dealing with the cut and thrust of highway duelling. There’s some of the usual wind jostling of a lightweight, but not much worse than on a bigger 600cc bike. The single-cylinder DOHC engine is happiest above 5,000 rpm and it honks forth with a nice low moan, none of that small engine “ring-a-ding-ding.”

Honda CBR250R 2011 ENGINE: 249cc, single cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC TRANSMISSION: Six-speed with O-ring sealed chain final drive WHEELBASE: 1,370mm SEAT HEIGHT: 780mm FUEL CAPACITY: 13 litres Price: CBR250R $4,499; CBR250RA $4,999 (ABS)

Little tax planning can make a big difference to after-tax investment returns and income ~ Part 3. Allocate your investment assets tax efficiently Because different types of investment income are taxed in different ways, how you allocate them can make a difference. In a regular taxable account: • Interest income from GICs and bonds is fully taxable at your marginal tax rate. • Half of any capital gain on the sale of an investment is tax-exempt. • Eligible dividends paid to you by Canadian corporations receive a Dividend Tax Credit.

Dr. Greg Nelson Dentist*

In a non-taxable registered account, such an RRSP or RRIF, all income is treated equally. All investment income accumulates tax-free inside the account. When it is eventually withdrawn, it is treated as regular income Charlie and taxed at your marginal tax rate (except for your TFSA, which also allows EPC tax-free withdrawals).

Restorative, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry

As a result, when allocating investment assets between your taxable and non-taxable accounts, consider the following strategy:

A:

If you have only ever had what we call “drill, fill and bill” dentistry then you have not crossed paths with a complete/comprehensive dental examination. Most new people we see comment that they have never had it done before. Why we do it is to understand the big picture for your oral health. If you have had a crown here and there, fillings over there, maybe a bridge or implant added later without a plan is like buying a set of golf clubs one at a time. Do they all work together? For people with some complexity in their needs it’s like doing a renovation. We need a blueprint to get started. On the other hand many of our new patients are in pretty good or excellent shape and may not need all the elements involved in the complete exam. Properly evaluating your oral health involves a number of steps to determine what your current dental situation is. It’s like a “balance sheet” to assess your dental assets and liabilities. For most new patients, we often begin simply with a discussion of your previous dental history to help in our understanding of your concerns and opinions about your dental situation and past experiences. This assists us in helping to meet your objectives and perhaps (hopefully) exceed your expectations in providing our services to you. Next time, a description of what we do together at the complete/ comprehensive examination.

Q: I have had hip pain for a couple years

What is sciatica?

This nerve is the longest and largest nerve in your body, made up of five nerve roots that exit from your spine in your lower back and join together as a group to function your muscles and joints of your thigh, knee, calf, ankle, foot and toes. Typically the pain you feel will follow the course of the nerve down the back of the thigh and leg, but it can also be in the front or sides of the legs, or in the hip. The pain can vary from being quite intense and sharp, to achy and be accompanied by other nerve sensations like burning, numbness, tingling, prickling and crawling sensations. Simple activities like walking, bending and turning, sitting or standing can be difficult or impossible. As chiropractors, we need to determine the cause of the sciatica ranging from, but not limited to, spinal misalignments, disc compression, arthritis, constipation, tumors, and advanced diabetes. Every sciatic sufferer needs a healthy spine. Many sciatica and leg pain sufferers have reported dramatic relief of their condition after chiropractic care. One of the keys is not to wait. Like any problem, the sooner it is addressed, the better the results, but chronic sufferers often see excellent results also. Chiropractic is the drug-free natural approach to improving your health potential, so please…don’t wait; call to set up your appointment.

now, Can massage or EIMS relieve the pain and make me to return to my favourite physical activity?

A:

A:

There are a few different possible causes for the elbow pain. The most common are pain on the inside or the outside of the elbow. The pain on the inside of the elbow is commonly called “golfer’s elbow” and the pain on the outside of the elbow is commonly called “tennis elbow”. Clinically both are called an epicondylitis. Interestingly enough “tennis elbow” is more common among golfers than “golfers elbow”. Both are caused by an inflammation of the muscle tendons that attach just above the elbow. The muscles that control wrist flexion attach to the medial (inside) of the elbow. Any repetitive wrist flexion movements, such as during a golf swing, can cause an irritation of the tendons and can lead to pain, redness, swelling, loss of range of motion and/or decreased strength. The same irritation is true for the lateral (outside) of the elbow, however the muscles that control wrist extension movements attach to the lateral elbow. The therapists at Evolution Sport Therapy can assess, treat and provide home exercises to promote rapid healing and recovery to get you back playing golf quickly.

More outdoor fun means more dirty clothes. Be sure to check your washing machine hoses for bulges, leaks or cracks and be sure to remove drier lint regularly. Also, move your machine at least four inches from the wall to prevent hose kinking and damage, and never leave your home while the washer is running. Remember — washing machine hoses should be replaced approximately every three years.

Q: What’s the latest in cyber fraud here locally? A:

There is one interesting scam making the rounds of the lower mainland including right here in Richmond. Targets receive a phone call from an individual who claims to be from Microsoft support stating the victims computer is infected with malware. The originating phone number is 510-943-3040 (California). They direct the victim to a website that allows them remote access to your computer and then proceed to demonstrate by fraudulent methods to convince the victim that their computer is indeed infected. They then take the victim to another website to sell them some expensive and questionable services. One of these scammers was unfortunate enough to call me at home. I gave them access to a specialised clean computer in a virtual machine session and recorded the whole session. This scam is still going on today and regular law enforcement doesn’t seem to be the slightest bit interested in taking them down. Unfortunately the ongoing cyberwars with organized crime are not ones we are winning - and our current Conservative federal government just doesn’t have what it takes in terms of brains, money or resources to deal with it.

Q: I see that silver is lower now than it was in April. I am thinking about buying silver, but I am worried about it going down more. What do you think about prices as of today? Also, what is the difference between recognized and unrecognized silver bars?

A:

Dale Jackaman President Amuleta™ Computer Security Inc.

604-230-8114 330-1985 West Broadway Vancouver, BC, V6J 4Y3 dale@amuleta.com http://amuleta.com

Silver and gold prices vary cyclically throughout the year, with the year’s low usually being sometime in the summer. I believe that low was reached on July 1st. Since that time, silver is up $2.00 Canadian and gold is up $90.00 Canadian. I am surprised at how strong the upside has been because we usually do not see this until fall. I still think silver is a bargain at these prices and I am still purchasing for myself. The difference between recognized and unrecognized silver bars is very small. There were two manufacturers of silver bars in the 1980’s who no longer make 1, 5 or 10 ounce silver bars and people pay extra for them. All the silver bars we sell are recognized by major bullion dealers across Canada and are easily tradeable. On Wednesday, July 13, silver went up $1.75 US. Note: We have been asked a lot about safes the last few years. We now carry a catalogue and can order safes in for you at very reasonable prices.

really saving money by using water meters? What’s the catch?

Yes, families are saving hundreds of dollars each year! Out of all the houses in Richmond (non-strata), 61% have a water meter, and 89% of them are saving money. Even some families of 6 are now saving money without having to change their regular water use habits, and the average household with a water meter now pays less than half of the annual flat rate for water ($580.19) and sewer ($373.24) found on their annual utility bill. That means, the average home in Richmond saves over $500 each year just by having a water meter – and the water meter and installation is completely free! There is no catch! The program is funded by the government to promote water conservation by making residents more aware of the water they use, so there is no charge for the meter or installation. This program is designed to save our water and save you money, and it has been working for years. The water and sewer rates have been designed so that families with 5 people or less will save money. For the odd situation where those families pay more, it has been found that there are leaks on their property. Once the leaks are repaired the water bill always decreases.

I need to reduce my weight. What do you recommend?

A:

The first step is to have a hearing test to assess where your hearing levels are. Once levels are established, the test should be thoroughly explained and your questions or concerns answered. It is usually a good idea to have someone accompany you during this process to both listen and ask questions as well. Secondly, styles and shapes of hearing instruments would be shown and explained. This can be decided upon based on past experience, type of hearing loss as well as size and shape of the individual’s ear. Thirdly, hearing instrument technologies and features are explained as to your lifestyle, listening needs and degree of hearing impairment. Lastly, there needs to be ongoing counseling to ensure the instruments are programmed, adjusted when needed and kept in good working order.

It is true that being overweight can decrease your sensitivity to insulin. This leads to worsened blood sugar readings. Luckily, by losing as little as 5-10 per cent of your weight, you can make a drastic improvement in your overall blood sugar. The key to reducing your blood sugar and weight often begins with fiber. For people with diabetes, we normally recommend at least twice the normal recommended daily intake, meaning upwards of 50 grams of fiber per day. Fiber can help delay glucose absorption, keep us full, and reduce cholesterol; all essential parts of keeping us healthy. Eating more small meals a day instead of several big meals can also help maintain our metabolism and help us lose more weight. Check in with your diabetes educator and learn even more ways to help you lose and maintain a healthy weight!

Q: Over the past few years, I’ve gained a

Q: Older home? Electrical concerns? A:

I am certainly not an electrician, but I learned a lot about wiring and sub panels when I recently bought a home built in the 50’s…..Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my house, and it was worth every second, but without a qualified electrician to explain things to me before I bought the house, I would have been lost. I redid my kitchen and added a hot tub, which resulted in a recommended panel upgrade from 60-amp to 100, but I chose to do a 200-amp service panel so that there was enough power to safely handle the new load. Many older homes still use the originally installed electrical equipment, which was likely installed when the average load on the system was much less than what it is today. With our microwaves, jetted tubs, multi tv’s, and fancy hot water heaters, we place a much higher demand on our electrical systems. Older homes are at risk, and should be thoroughly inspected to ensure your safety. Watch for ….an old style fuse box (instead of a panel), a panel over 30 years old, circuit breakers tripping, damaged wiring, aluminum wiring (which could be perfectly fine if installed properly and used in the correct application) knob & tube wiring (common in the 1900’s-1940’s). Definitely a professional electrician should be consulted if you have any concerns about the state of the electrical system in your current home or in a home you are considering moving into, whether a rental or a purchase. A pre-inspection, before you purchase a home, can certainly alert you to the fact that upgrades might be necessary. An inspection by an electrician can give you a cost estimate for upgrades, and allow you to factor that into your purchase and renovation costs. Note also that your property insurance could be affected or void if the electrical is not done safely and/or to code. This is NOT something that you can avoid, your family’s safety is at risk, and the electrical in a home is a costly fix if you are not prepared for it. Find out the facts before you move ahead, and then make your decision. Most homes will pass the test easily, but wouldn’t you rather be sure? Thank you to Blue Crest Electric for their professional advice during the purchase and upgrades to my home. I definitely sleep better at night.

For a happier, healthier lifestyle for kids in British Columbia, KidSport™ makes a difference.

KidSport™ provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.

Now an example of what is termed a career coach, Chichak briefly sat on the sidelines when his sons started playing football. But frustrated at what he was seeing lured him back. “There was always a shortage of coaches and I had experience to offer,” he reasons. “Besides, I loved the interaction with the kids and how much they absorbed in a short time. It was instant feedback, and results with a big smile to go with it.” Of course coaching isn’t without its challenges, and the biggest critics are often parents. “It was always tough to get respect as a young coach,” Chichak says. “But overall (learning to) maintain your composure, and understanding that it is just a game (gets you through it). What matters most is the camaraderie and the life skills that come out of playing sports.” That’s not to suggest Chichak isn’t ultra competitive. He is. “I’d be lying if I said that winning wasn’t one of my favourite aspects of coaching,” he says. “It is the ultimate reward for everyone after working so hard at perfecting skills and strategies. At first, your measuring stick is wins or making the show, but as you get older you realize that the players forget about the games and take with them the overall experience.” Chichak’s No. 1 priority is to be prepared mentally and physically. It’s a commitment he expects from players and coaches alike. “I have always been a

set plays at different times.” Chichak believes much of the goodwill on a team is established in the dressing room and during road trips. “Travelling with a team gives you a chance to experience all facets of every player’s life and how they interact,” he said. “It is most rewarding to have a player come to you after many years and thank you for what you taught them in the sport and in life in general. It makes all the hours of sacrifice worthwhile.”

DRY GRAD 2011 We are grateful to the many corporations, organizations, volunteers, parent advisory councils (PAC), school administration and individuals who made it possible for DRY AFTER GRAD events to take place this year. Parent-sponsored/chaperoned parties were held at Burnett, Hugh Boyd, McMath, McNair, McRoberts, Richmond Secondary and Steveston-London. The graduates were guaranteed a safe and fun environment to celebrate after hours. Private & corporate donors, event volunteers, family/friends who supported our fundraisers or offered help in other meaningful ways showed a great spirit of community.

With awareness and commitment, we can reduce the risk of our youth being involved in deadly drinking and driving accidents during the graduation season.

Thank You!

ON BEHALF OF THE DRY GRAD COMMITTEES FOR 2010-2011, we proudly acknowledge this year's Dry Grad sponsors listed below. We could not have done this event without them. We leave you with this one thought — please carry on the Dry Grad tradition in our Richmond High Schools for the sake of all of our future graduates. 711 – No. 3 & Williams Art Knapp’s Plantland A&W Seafair Aberdeen Centre Allied Foods Andrea Wang Alpha Omega Salon & Spa Argos Products Artisan Photography – Mary Jensen Artona Photography Asama Bicycles Ask Hair Studio Atlas Machines AVON B & D Spa Inc.
