Hospital at ‘high risk’ in quake
Britannia serves as stage for theatrical work
Engineering report says old north tower could partially collapse by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Even a moderately strong earthquake could trigger liquefaction beneath Richmond Hospital’s aging north tower, and cause its foundation to sink and fail and lead to “significant building damage and possible partial structural collapse.” That’s according to a structural engineering report obtained through B.C. freedom of information laws by journalist Stanley Tromp and provided to The Richmond Review. Authored by Bush, Bohlman and Partners senior partner Clint Low, the March 3 report focused on the north tower, which was built in 1965 under the building codes of the era, “when seismic design was not a governing consideration.” Richmond Hospital is somewhat unique, the report states, in that it faces two major seismic considerations: its ability to resist lateral shaking during a quake, and the underlying soil’s ability to support the foundation during a high-energy ground-shaking event. While the current practice for large buildings involves densifying the ground to resist and prevent liquefaction, that wasn’t done at the time the north tower was constructed nearly five decades ago. Vancouver Coastal Health Authority spokesperson Anna Marie D’Angelo said long-range plans call for the north tower to be replaced, rather than upgraded. “It will be a big project and takes time to develop,” she said. D’Angelo said the health authority
does take the contents of the report seriously. She noted that the hospital’s Westminster tower was built in 1997 and complies with modern earthquake standards. Upgrading the north tower to meet current building code requirements would cost upwards of $12 million, and be a “significant and disruptive construction project,” the report said. In conclusion, Low wrote: “The soft soils underlying the hospital are prone to liquefaction under moderate and strong earthquake ground shaking. Liquefaction will lead to foundation failure and large horizontal ground displacements causing significant building damage and possible partial structure collapse. Liquefaction substantially increases the building seismic risk.” Added Low: “We rate the building as high risk.” The current building code requires a building to be able to withstand four times as much of the seismic forces as in the 1960s, and the north tower’s superstructure and foundations are adequate for about 20 per cent of the 2010 code’s seismic demand. Richmond Hospital’s north tower isn’t the only tall Richmond building constructed during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Simon Fraser University research professor John Clague said the phenomenon of liquefaction wasn’t well known during that period. Asked earlier this year about the three tall towers across from Richmond Centre, Clague wrote that he didn’t know whether their foundations were constructed taking into consideration the possibility of liquefaction. “Ground shaking is much less of an issue than liquefaction...It is very important that the foundations of these building be seated below the liquefiable sand layer that underlies Richmond. If not, there is a problem.”

Shooting incident wasn’t ﬁrst at home where child was shot Neighbour says pellet gun incident sparked concern about a decade ago by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter The house where a six-year-old boy was accidentally shot with a riﬂe by the homeowner, has a previous history involving gunplay. An area resident, who contacted The Richmond Review last week but asked to remain anonymous, claims there was a disconcerting incident about a decade ago. The neighbour said he heard noises coming from the back yard of a Whistler Court home located behind his house. It sounded like someone shooting a pellet gun at the back yard fence, and in the direction of the neighbouring properties immediately to the south, he said. “I didn’t like the idea,” said the homeowner and parent, who then called over the fence and peeked through the greenery to see two teens playing with a pellet gun. He urged them to stop ﬁring the gun because it wasn’t safe, though they claimed they weren’t doing anything, he said. So the homeowner contacted the Richmond RCMP. Police visited the home, at 10760 Whistler Crt., and spoke to the father of the house, who indicated that the teens somehow got a hold of his pellet gun without his permission, and
they were spoken to. When the homeowner ﬁrst heard about last week’s shooting, it reminded him of the ﬁrst incident. In the early afternoon of Tuesday, Aug. 2, a six-year-old boy was taken to hospital after being struck by a bullet from a riﬂe. “Well, it sounded like a careless accident. If you intended to wound somebody with a riﬂe, you’d probably kill them,” he said. Had the riﬂe been properly stored, with trigger locks in place, and ammunition stored under lock-and-key separately, accidents are less likely to happen, he said. Fang Chi, 53, has been charged with pointing a ﬁrearm, unlawfully discharging a ﬁrearm, criminal negligence causing bodily harm and careless use of a ﬁrearm. RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley was unable to pull up the ﬁle involving the incident from a decade ago. But police said Chi was not known to them, and he has expressed remorse for his actions. The victim was visiting the home from China, and had surgery last Wednesday and is expected to make a full recovery. “We are very fortunate that the boy’s injuries weren’t more severe,” Turley said. “We all need to keep in mind that ﬁrearms are extremely dangerous and need to be treated with respect.”
“Well, it sounded like a careless accident. If you intended to wound somebody with a riﬂe, you’d probably kill them.”
Still awaiting new Japa Dog Japa Dog, the Vancouver street food vendor that took local hot dog lovers by storm, is still without a new home. Featured in The Richmond Review on July 29, the food cart opened last month in a temporary location in front of the Canadian Tire on No. 3 Road and quickly attracted a crowd. The company takes hotdogs (beef, pork or turkey) and bratwurst and adds all sorts of Japanese ﬂavourings, including seaweed, bonito ﬂakes, radish and more. But Japa Dog, which has four locations in downtown Vancouver, is still looking for a new Richmond location.
Canada Line ridership averages 116,000 per day on weekdays. Ridership wasn’t expected to top 100,000 until 2013 or 2014.
Canada Line gets the boost Trains to run more often during the rush by Jeff Nagel Black Press Canada Line trains will run more frequently and peak service will last longer with a bump in service starting today. TransLink spoksman Ken Hardie said the increase from 14 to 16 trains running at the busiest times was planned and built into the operating contract with line builder InTransitBC. “There’s no incremental cost to TransLink,” he said. “It is happening on schedule.” But more people than expected are using the rapid transit line connecting Richmond, Vancouver and the airport.
Ridership now averages 116,000 per day on weekdays and 107,000 overall, when weekends are included. Canada Line ridership wasn’t expected to top 100,000 until 2013 or 2014. “We’re about two years ahead of where we thought we were going to be,” Hardie said. TransLink expects a rush of new transit riders this fall when the U-Pass is extended to several new post-secondary institutions, adding 60,000 more students with unlimited transit use built into their student fees. But Hardie said that wasn’t a factor in increasing the Canada Line service. New U-Pass students on the Canada Line will for the most part be taking it south to the Kwantlen campus in Richmond, going in the off-peak direction where trains should be less crowded. Canada Line peak service levels will now run an hour later to 7 p.m.
Saturday, September 18, 2010 48 pages
On weekdays, peak service will also start 30 minutes earlier, at 6:30 a.m. The Canada Line can currently run an maximum of 20 trains at once, so Hardie said there’s considerable room for further expansion as needed. The Canada Line handled more than 200,000 riders daily during the 2010 Olympics—which is credited for showing residents how to use the route and ramping up demand quickly. More frequent bus connections to the line out of South Surrey, White Rock and Delta are also helping draw new riders.

Richmond man charged with murder A Richmond man has been charged with second degree murder in connection with a woman’s death in Vancouver on June 10. Richmond’s Anthony Blake Cruz, 28, was arrested Friday in Richmond without incident and was scheduled to make his first appearance in Vancouver provincial court Monday morning. On June 10, around 7:30 p.m., a 911 caller reported that a woman was dead inside an apartment in the 7400 block of Fraser Street.
The victim, Jessica Eguia-Cornejo, 36, was found inside the apartment and according to investigators had met with foul play. She had only recently moved to Vancouver from Peru, in mid-2008. In an unrelated case, Cruz was originally charged with extortion and fraud over $5,000 in relation to an incident on May 17, 2010 in Richmond. He pled guilty to fraud, and is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 6. —by Martin van den Hemel

Staff Reporter You can ﬁght the Insurance Corporation of B.C., its lawyers and expert witnesses. And you can win all on your own. That was the message from Angela Kay, a Richmond realtor, who admittedly felt intimidated going up solo against the mega auto insurance ﬁrm, a lawyer and an expert witness in her hit-and-run fender bender claim. But Kay came out on top, won a $1,152 judgement, and earned praise from Richmond provincial court adjudicator Darrell W. Roberts, who ruled in her favour and described her cross-examination of an expert witness as “most skilful.” “It was incredibly intimidating,” Kay said of the experience. She had expected ICBC would be ready to settle out of court. She said she’s “incredibly grateful” of the efforts of Richmond’s Brett Snider, who testiﬁed about what he saw that Aug. 30, 2010 day at Richmond Centre, and gave up his own time and went out of his way to assist in the case. Kay had parked her 2007 SUV and stepped into Richmond Centre
for just ﬁve minutes on the day of the incident. Upon returning to her vehicle, she noticed another vehicle leaving, and decided to check the right side of her car. “She got out and went around to the right front or her Lexus and saw fresh scrape and crease marks in the area of the Lexus right front bump and wheel.” That’s when she yelled to the driver of the Buick and asked him to stop. Her shouts drew the attention of Snider, who described seeing a protracted parking or backingup manoeuvre of a 2002 Buick Century. “He said that while he did not see the actual point of contact, he did see the Buick driven back into the Lexus causing the Lexus to move in a bouncing-up manner. Snider jumped out of his vehicle and ran after the Buick and made the driver, Tian-Yang Zhu stop. “He told her she hit the Lexus when leaving her parking spots, and asked her to return to the parking aisle to exchange information with the Lexus owner. He said he did this because he had had an unhappy experience with a parking lot hit-and-run driver,” the judgement states. Since the driver appeared to have driving difﬁculty, he offered to park it for her. There was a green N on the rear of the Buck indicating that the operator was a novice driver, the ruling states. It was the eyewitness’s evidence that he saw the Lexus bounce up
and down and that turned the case. An experienced ICBC adjustor testiﬁed that the damage to the Lexus was not caused by the Buick. He noted that the height of the damage to the Lexus was 29 to 32 inches high, and some were lower than 25 inches, which was the height of likely contact on the Lexus. There was no attempt to check for matching traces of paint. “However, in a most skilful crossexamination by Ms. Kay, (ICBC witness) Mr. Clough acknowledged that a photograph...shows a long, horizontal, and deep scratch on the Lexus right front bumper panel at 25 inches from the ground that exactly matches a protruding plastic strip to the left of the Buick’s right rear wheel well...This protruding strip is exactly 25 inches from the ground.” And taking into consideration that Snider testiﬁed seeing the car bounce up and down, adjudicator Roberts ruled that “it is not difﬁcult to understand that the scoring or scratch marks...reﬂect a contact of the Buick on the Lexus that pressed strongly enough to bounce the Lexus up in the air. “From all the evidence, I have concluded that not only did the defendant vehicle back into the claimant’s Lexus, causing it to bounce up, but that it did so hard enough to cause the damage of which the claimant complains.” As part of the judgement, Kay also received $100 for ﬁling fees and $20 for service costs.

Sanders, 59, is a cast member in Salmon Row: The Britannia Project, a fresh new theatrical work being brought to the grounds of Britannia Heritage Shipyard by a theatre troupe known for its extravagant, colourful outdoor performances. Vancouver’s Mortal Coil Performance Society is staging a story by Nicola Harwood depicting the early days of the shipyard, where Sanders has served as a docent since 2006. The ambitious project takes place on the wooden boardwalks and creaky ﬂoors of the site’s buildings, once home to a booming boat-building industry. Sanders, a Steveston resident, has acting experience spanning theatre, TV, ﬁlm, commercials and animation. Today he’s president of the Union of B.C.

Performers and vice-president of the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists. His only resume entry that comes close to Salmon Row is Barkerville, the town he ﬁrst arrived in when he moved to Canada in 1984. There he starred in a play and spent a few years as a site interpreter playing a character from the 1870s. “We were playing scenes and things related to the historical aspect, but nothing with the spectacular theatrical aspects that this is going to have, with big huge projections and stilt walkers and all the speciﬁc music that was written just for this piece,” he said. In Salmon Row, Sanders plays a cannery owner modelled lightly after the namesake of Deas Island, who was also an African American from the United States. See Page 6

Britannia Heritage Shipyard serves as stage for Salmon Row From Page 5 “He’s, I suppose, like anyone here on the river. Everyone was trying to make lots of money...off the tremendous amount of ﬁsh that came through every year,” said Sanders, whose character is pitted against workers ﬁghting for fair compensation and reasonable working conditions. “Those sorts of things are part of what happened along the river, and he represents the controlling forces that determined what the lives were like for the rest of the workers.” The show opens on Britannia’s lawn. The audience is introduced to the relationship First Nations people had with the land, and learn it will soon be “imposed upon” by people from elsewhere. As that transition happens, the audience will move along with performers to other locations, hearing stories of immigration, labour strife and ethnic conﬂict from rumrunners, ﬁshermen and cannery workers.
An acting company of 12 will bring the stories to life, with help from masks, puppets and stilts— something the show’s artistic team is known for as producers of the Stanley Park Ghost Train and Bright Nights events. A four-piece band will perform original music throughout the show, and director Peter Hall has also brought in a local First Nations dance group known as the T’skaya Dancers to help illustrate the story. Among its illustrations, Salmon Row highlights how groups of different ethnicities have come together to ﬁght for a common cause in the past. In Steveston’s case, it was workers banding together to ﬁght owners to get their due. Said Sanders: “Who would have thought that people with that kind of diversity that probably wouldn’t have socialized with each other, deﬁnitely found a reason to come together to stand up to something that they all found it difﬁcult to ﬁght alone.”

he court judgement was for just $1,152, a seemingly inconsequential decision unlikely to turn many heads.
But for Richmond’s Angela Kay and others wronged by irresponsible drivers, her Richmond provincial court victory symbolized how the ﬁght for justice and what’s right is never easy. And that coming out on top requires not just skills, but help from Good Samaritans. On Aug. 30, 2010, Kay popped into Richmond Centre for a few minutes, and upon returning to her 2007 Lexus SUV, saw a vehicle pulling out. Something urged her to check out the side of her vehicle. Sure enough, a fresh gouge greeted her, and she quickly took action, alerting the driver of the other vehicle with a shout, one loud enough to attract the attention of another driver who had witnessed the incident. Kay fought for what was right: the roughly $1,480.47 repair bill. The other driver was represented by the Insurance Corporation of B.C., who hired a lawyer and brought in an expert witness, while Kay battled it

out on her own. While she worked long and hard preparing for the court battle, she largely credits a witness for making the difference. Indeed, while Kay earned kudos from the adjudicator for the way she stickhandled the case, Kay heaped praise on the witness, who not
only assisted on the day of the fender bender, but then went out of his way to testify in court. Had he not appeared, Kay’s case would have been torpedoed. Luckily for Kay, the witness had previously been victimized in similar fashion, and wanted to do his part to help Kay get justice.
Kay said she felt intimidated, going up against a lawyer, and an expert witness. But she kept her cool long enough to poke holes in the expert’s testimony, doing enough to convince the adjudicator that Kay had made her case. As the saying goes,
there’s nothing free about freedom, and the same applies to justice, where what’s just doesn’t always come to pass. In Kay’s case, a helping hand from fellow Richmondite Brett Snider made her day, and helped her come out on top in what seemed like a Davidversus-Goliath match.

Life Lessons Andrea Phillpotts
know there are other grammar geeks out there.
I’ve read with satisfaction about the Richmond resident that pointed out the
stationary/ stationery error in a recent movie shoot at Steveston. I know that books like Eats, Shoots and Leaves (the zero tolerance approach to punctuation) have been enormously popular and somebody must be buying them. I also thank the readers who point out the occasional typo in my own columns (which usually mortiﬁes me for several days.) And though I may be scoffed at by the younger generation at times (“U R soooo wierd”) there is a time and a place for proper grammar. In my humble opinion, now is deﬁnitely the time for it. Across our beautiful city, signs are popping up. Some are quickly handmade; others have been carefully constructed by grammatically suspect printing companies. All hawk products such as “Potatoe,” “Coliﬂower,” “Local Grow Produce,” “Local Raspberry” (singular), and the like. They bother me like a sore tooth does, like a pile of soggy trash, like the neighbour’s music blaring over
the hedge. Not horriﬁcally troublesome, but niggling, irritating, recurrent. For the ﬁrst time in my life, I’ve considered committing an act of mischief. I imagine myself with a spray can, cruising up and down the streets of Richmond at night in search of grammatical irregularities. When I ﬁnd them, I would neatly and accurately doctor them up, adding appropriate punctuation, inserting letters when needed. Grammar geek goes wild. Along No. 3 Road, there are some truly extraordinary signs that could make it into grammar books like Chinglish, a book that shares unintentionally funny English signs found in China. Still, when I’m cruising the Asian malls, I feel more guilty than smug, wishing that I’d kept up with my Chinese lessons. And I know when I’m attempting another language, I make equally funny mistakes like mispronouncing Punjabi desserts or Cantonese phrases. I fully understand that many of these errors are
unintentional and born out of inexperience with English, not malice, but they still chafe. Sometimes the mistakes can be confusing or misleading. I remember reading a menu in a Richmond restaurant that advertised its famous chicken as being served with three “bowels” of rice. I pondered it for a while, could bowels be some rare Singaporean delicacy or was it “bowls?” I pointed out the error and the next time, all menus were neatly corrected. In the end I’ll probably end up doing nothing, perhaps channeling my grammatical frustration into next year’s English lessons. Still, you never know, maybe you’ll see me one day on Steveston Highway late at night, can in hand and cape with the giant G ﬂuttering in the wind. Andrea Phillpotts is a Richmond writer and teacher.

RCMP needs to be accountable, not arrogant Editor: After reading your story about the latest betrayal of the publicâ€™s trust by the RCMP it has become very apparent even to the casual observer that it is a broken institution (â€œLead investigator in botched ecstasy case facing charges in Surrey Six probe,â€? Aug. 3.). I would suggest the arrest of Cpl. Danny Michaud is not just another black eye adding to the previous one inďŹ‚icted by Cpl. Monty Robinson when he was among the ofďŹ cers who tasered an innocent man to death at YVR, but I believe it is a blow to a vital organ within the RCMP. The stories of these two ofďŹ cers have something very important in commonâ€”they were both transferred after being internally identiďŹ ed as problem ofďŹ cers. Did management at the RCMP do their duty by protecting the public from these ofďŹ cers? Did they ďŹ re them or put them somewhere in the organization where they could do no further damage? The answer, as we all now well know, is no. They put their fellow ofďŹ cers careers and the interest of the RCMP ďŹ rst. When push comes to shove they have always shown they will protect and serve themselves even when lives are lost. It is a disturbing pattern. If any of this management style seems familiar we need look no further than how the Catholic church

handled known child sex abusers within their employ. Instead of having a backbone to deal with the problem they turned a blind eye and simply sent the pedophiles to another unwitting community where as a matter of course they continued to ruin lives. In the case of the RCMP, Cpl. Robinson ended up being sent to us in Richmond knowing full well he was damaged goodsâ€”as we know he went on to kill a man unlawfully while in uniform at YVR and then followed it up by killing an innocent motorcyclist while intoxicated on his own time but still being paid by the RCMP. Cpl. Michaud ended up â€œinvestigatingâ€? the most high proďŹ le murder case in B.C. The public is demanding accountability and all we get is the same old arrogance. I have a message for the RCMP: You are not in a position to be arrogant, show us accountability and start rebuilding trust with the public. Make no mistake, we are watching you closely.

letters A fed raccoon is a happy raccoon Editor: I recently told a friend in Crescent Beach about the recent raccoon attacks on pets in Richmond that have been reported in the paper. She was surprised and told me about her
experience with raccoons. In her backyard, raccoons and her pet cats apparently exist peacefully together. They even “sun themselves” within sight of each other! I expressed surprise, so she explained that she and her husband contacted an animal organiza-
tion and learned what they could feed raccoons that were in the area. I guess fed raccoons are happy raccoons because they obviously know that her cats aren’t food! Janet Oakes Richmond TELUS AUTHORIZED DEALERS Vancouver

Moving on to the next chapter Editor: An ancient proverb said: “A book buried with lots of treasures.” Every storybook has different scenes, characters, and endings. Each chapter takes us through something fascinating, maybe even something impossible. Nevertheless, in my book, the Grade 7 graduation on July 21 symbolized the ﬁnish of Chapter 1. I spent my ﬁrst chapter in Spul ‘u’ kwuks Elementary School. Up until now, I still have memories of the ﬁrst day at school and the ﬁrst report card I received. It seemed like just yesterday. However, when I reviewed every detail in the chapter, I realized it has been seven long years. These seven years had certainly been memorable. I, along with the other 67 students, have experienced more than you can imagine. To wrap up the ﬁrst chapter thoroughly, I would like to honour some people who have been a huge part of my success at Spul‘u’kwuks. First, I want to thank all the teachers and staff. Without their patience and effort, I would not have achieved my goals so remarkably. They strove to work for the beneﬁt of all the students year after year, so that we grow up in a proper and responsible way. The second group of people I wish to honour are the parents of all the students. Our parents support and encourage us everyday. Their unconditional sacriﬁce has strengthened us physically and mentally. I also want to thank the Grade 7 students. They made my years so phenomenal. Simply their smile had enlightened me in my learning everyday. I wish all my fellow peers the very best in high school. Before starting the next chapter, I would conclude that I’m proud to be part of this special class of 2011. Not only were we the largest group of graduates, but we also care and respect one another. I hope that no matter where we go, we’ll continue to care and love each other, just like our school song says: “Here we are gathered, friends all together, from places both far and near.” Samantha Li Richmond

letters Marine zoning makes no sense in today’s Steveston Editor: Now that Onni Developments will be proceeding with the ﬁnal phase of the Imperial Landing development, it’s time to face reality. The City of Richmond should immediately approve a rezoning that eases the property use conditions that were originally imposed on the ground ﬂoor retail component of the six buildings that will line the waterfront. This will allow an important segment of Steveston’s public waterfront to become the wonderful urban people-place it always had the potential to be. Fourteen years ago, when the citizens’ planning committee, of which I was a member, crafted the neighbourhood plan for this unique waterfront, some of us on that committee advised that restricting the ground
ﬂoor retail use to maritime-related industries and only marine-related commercial enterprises would result in that space remaining empty or, worse, conﬂicting with the neighbouring residential uses while robbing Steveston of a smartly-designed and animated public waterfront. The short-sighted and hostile politics of the day resulted in a zoning that made no sense. The critical mass of Steveston’s commercial ﬁshing support industries had by then disappeared and the dreaming and scheming of a few who were out of touch with reality at the time contrived the restrictive retail/ commercial designation as a way to attempt to hinder the entire waterfront development. Well, that was a long time ago and now the waterfront is largely
re-developed. Except, an important piece of the puzzle is missing, leaving a half-kilometre stretch of the waterfront without the important urban design elements that could make it an enjoyable, diverse and animated public place. I ﬁnd it a boring, sterile place with no activity shoreside or waterside. Many of the residents who today live in earlier phases of the Imperial Landing neighbourhood blocked a “compromise” plan that would have seen much of the pre-zoned waterfront development land be converted to public open space in return for clustering some residential density. I had no problem with the mid-rise buildings then proposed, but I don’t necessarily believe that leaving much of this land as open space would have made for a

better public waterfront. Now it is time to be realistic and let Onni construct buildings along the waterfront that can be occupied by uses people will welcome, adding to the vitality of Steveston’s charming urban public waterfront. Boat repair businesses, marine machine shops and maritime insurance agencies would not represent a tenant mix that would contribute to the urban design success of this important riverfront prommenade, if there was even the remote possibility such tenants would ﬂock to the area. Steveston has grown up. It’s time for the people who control it’s future to do so as well. Bob Ransford Richmond

Jennifer Yang birdied two of the ﬁnal three holes to capture the 2011 Canadian Junior Girls’ Golf Championship Friday at Richmond’s QGolf Club. Don Fennell photo
Yang to Canadian title by Don Fennell Sports Editor Jennifer Yang said the last 18 holes of the 2011 Canadian Junior Girls’ Golf Championship Friday at
Richmond’s Q Golf Club “felt like the longest round of my life.” “I didn’t know if I was leading or not since I couldn’t see the scoreboard,” explained the 17-year-old
from Coquitlam. “Then when I missed a short putt for birdie on the eighth hole I was, like, ‘There goes my birdie and my chance (at victory). Then I put my second shot in the water on 14 and thought I won’t have a chance to get in the lead or even tie.” But apparently even Yang under-estimated the level of consistency at which she plays. It was the single most important factor in her going from fourth place at 4-under par to winning the tournament at 7-under par. Her 36-hole total score was 285, three strokes better than Coquitlam schoolmates SoonBin Kim, 18, and Anica Yoo, 17. Kim enjoyed a one stroke advantage on the ﬁeld going into Friday’s ﬁnal round. Though she managed only one birdie on the front nine, and picked up a bogey on the 10th hole, Yang played well enough to stay close.

Richmond Review Âˇ Page 13
Former LPGA player Wyatt says golfâ€™s future is in good hands From Page 12
Then when third-round leader Kim shot back-to-back bogeys on the 12th and 13th holes and another on the 16th, Yang wrestled away the win in the clutch with birdies on two of the ďŹ nal three holes. â€œWhen I made birdie on the 16th I barely made it,â€? Yang said. â€œBut when the ball went around the cup and in, at that point, I thought I might have a chance to win. The last hole was a short par 5 but I was still a little nervous.â€? Winning a national title is a ďŹ tting denouement to what Yang said is probably her last junior event. It was even more special
video-online www.richmondreview.com to win at home and with her parents in attendance. Yang and Kim, who are good friends, will both be attending the University of Washington starting next month on golf scholarships. Now a pro at the QGolf Club (formerly Quilchena Golf and Country Club), Richmondâ€™s Jennifer Wyatt played 11 years (1989 to 1998) on the Ladiesâ€™ Professional Golf Association tour. She was impressed by the quality of play in the junior ďŹ eld.
â€œAll these young players are so good,â€? said Wyatt, who in 1992 won the LPGAâ€™s CrestarFarm Fresh Classic and in 2003 ďŹ nished ďŹ rst in the BMO Financial Group Canadian Womenâ€™s Tour Order of Merit. â€œThey would make laps around what we used to do.â€? The winner of the Womenâ€™s Western Junior Golf Championship in 1983 and the B.C. Junior title in 1984, Wyatt said todayâ€™s players consistently hit the ball far and straight. Some, she suggested, are â€œalmostâ€? ready to play on the Tour. B.C. players, who combined to win the inter-provincial title at last weekâ€™s Canadian Junior
Girlsâ€™ Golf Championship, exemplify the preparation that prevails among todayâ€™s young golfers, said Wyatt. â€œThese golfers began preparing for this tournament early in the year,â€? she said. â€œAnd thereâ€™s always a lot of training camps,
giving these players methods and ways to handle the mental game. And thereâ€™s good, quality coaching.â€? Brooke Henderson, a 13-yearold from Smith Falls, Ont,, is another of the wave of talented young Canadian golfers. Head-
ing into last weekâ€™s Canadian junior girlsâ€™ event in Richmond, the Ontario junior champion had already won three majors this season. Sixth at the national championship with a four-round total 290, Henderson is described by Wyatt as â€œthe picture of conďŹ dence.â€? â€œI heard other coaches talking about how sheâ€™s never rattled,â€? said Wyatt, who noted Henderson practiced on her own for hours during last weekâ€™s tournament. â€œSheâ€™d create real golf situations in her practices, such as using just one ball instead of standing with a pile on the target green,â€? said Wyatt.

One goal every team, regardless of its place in the standings, shares is to improve as the season wears on. To play their best at the end. The Richmond Young Chuckers were able to realize this goal Sunday by winning their ﬁnal game 8-4 over the Maple Ridge Mudhens and capture the Lower Mainland Tier 2 Junior Baseball League championship. Good defence and base running allowed the Chuckers to build up a 8-0 lead. Starting pitcher Brett Miller allowed only one hit through four innings before Nawid Moham-

mad came in to pitch the Chuckers out of a jam in the ﬁfth inning. He forced the Mudhens to hit into a double play and pop up on three pitches. Austin Nikolai paced Richmond at the plate, while Damian Goeres shut the door over the last two innings. Richmond didn’t have it so easy in the semiﬁnals. They were down 5-1 to Gibsons when Keenan Samson-Kapp came in to pitch and held Gibsons scoreless through five innings. Then down to their last at-bats in the bottom of the ninth inning, the Chuckers came up with four runs to send the game into extra innings. Gibsons regained the lead with a run in the top of the 12th inning, but the Chuckers scored twice as Trevor Tyrer beat out an inﬁeld ground ball with a runner on third base.

Minor hockey golf tournament to support Richmond chapter of KidSport
Schaap at worlds
by Don Fennell
The 2011 World Rowing Junior Championships was in full swing last weekend and all Canadian crews got a chance to race on next yearâ€™s Olympic course in Eton, England. The junior menâ€™s four, which includes Richmondâ€™s Colin Schaap, won its repechage to advance to the semiďŹ nals in six minutes, 37.22 seconds. The Canadians were followed by Denmark and the U.S., who also advanced. Schaapâ€™s crewmates wereChristopher Marshall of Brockville, Ont., Lance Brazeau, also of Brockville, and Gareth Lindstrom of Vancouver.
Sports Editor Hockey fans, take note. Golfers, listen up. In its ongoing efforts to give back to the community it serves, the Richmond Minor Hockey Association is holding a special golf tournament next Monday at Richmondâ€™s Country Meadows Golf Course. The 2011 Sandman Signature Hotel & Resort Vancouver Richmond Minor Hockey Association Charity Golf Tournament is a fundraiser for
the Richmond chapter of KidSport BC. For $85, participants will enjoy a round of golf, dinner, good company and perhaps most importantly a good feeling from knowing theyâ€™re supporting those less fortunate. â€œWe feel heavily connected with the community and want to continue to improve upon that,â€? said Richmond Minor Hockey Association president Gary Lok. â€œWe have more fundraising projects in the works.â€? While the popularity of hockey,
especially following the playoff success of the Vancouver Canucks, has never been greater, Lok said a growing number of families canâ€™t afford to enroll their children in the game. â€œHockey is not a cheap sport and more families are struggling to pay the registration fees,â€? he said. â€œWe donâ€™t want cost to be a reason they arenâ€™t playing. We want to ensure they lead active lives as youth because those habits with transfer with them when they become adults. And that helps better our
community.â€? It was Richmond Minor Hockey Association vice-president Arthur Wong who suggested the fundraiser several months ago. The rest of the board quickly endorsed the idea. Kidsport BC helps families pay up to $300 of a sport registration fee. Thereâ€™s still time to sign up for this yearâ€™s fundraiser, which begins at high noon Aug. 15.

Born Apr 7, 1935 in Alkmar Holland, passed away peacefully on Fri Jul 22, 2011 of cancer. Gone to be with his dear wife Edith Mabel Anne (Mae-Anne) nee Wilson May 26, 1940 — Jan 21, 2006. Predeceased by his brother Jan Marinus (John) Mar 12, 2006. Lovingly remembered by children Larry Rae, Rina and Maya, grandchildren Shellie and Sabastion, and many friends and family. Harry left Holland after the tragedy of WWII with his parents Maria Elisabeth and Arie and went to Australia 1952-55, then to wonderful Canada. While Harry was a radio technician and a pilot for CP Airlines he met Mae-Anne working at the airport cafe and married Jul 18, 1959. Harry was an electrician/mechanic doing specialized work as an independent for many years after which he worked with Progressive Construction. Harry was the person everyone went to get advice, he had the ability to solve, build, design, ﬁx anything. He was a musical genius and his love of music and the legacy of his life long project — a concert band organ which he built, together with Mae, leaves us with the gift of music, wonder and joy. Vanpipeorgan.shawwebspace.ca, they will be missed terribly. Our parents taught us that music carries our heart and soul on drifts of air and sets us free. That goodness, caring, kindness and happiness towards others makes the world a better place. That love and beauty exist even in the smallest places and that everything in the world has spirit and soul and are all connected through time. Special thanks to the doctors and staff at Richmond Hospital, and the ﬁrst responders — ﬁremen and ambulance personnel for their wonderful care. No service by request. In lieu of ﬂowers, donations to Richmond Hospital Music Therapy Unit would be appreciated. Online condolences may be left at www.avalonsurrey.com

Trixie is a quiet & gentle lady who loves attention. She’s calm, steady & easygoing but has “get up & go” when playing with a cat teaser. Although her coat is short, she needs to be brushed regularly, which she enjoys! She’ll even let you cut her nails! A quieter home would be best for this sweetheart and she would be OK with older children. If you need a furry friend to keep you company & love you for the rest of their days, then come visit her at the Richmond SPCA!

> Richmond Maritime Festival at Britannia Heritage Shipyard
Discovering Richmond’s maritime heritage
wave of excitement washed over Britannia Heritage Shipyards last weekend at the eighth annual Richmond Maritime Festival.
The event, put on by the City of Richmond and presented by RE/ MAX, saw around 35,000 Around Town people Amanda Oye come out over three days and discover the rich history of the area. “The Maritime Festival is designed to celebrate Richmond’s maritime heritage and particularly the ties to the west coast fishing industry,” said Ted Townsend, spokesperson for the City of Richmond. Scattered in and around the shipyards over the weekend were stages, arts and crafts areas for children, ships including the HMCS Oriole tall ship and tents of information set up by local businesses and community groups. This year the event was expanded to included many new activities and exhibits, including the popular Chinese Bunkhouse exhibit, according to Townsend. There were also more musicians, storytellers, dancers and actors dressed up to entertain the crowds. “We had the entire site sort of animated,” Townsend said. “We got a lot of rave responses from both new and returning attendees. “It was a great festival and we are looking forward to continuing to build upon that next year.” Amanda Oye covers the social scene for The Review. Reach her at email@example.com. Around Town appears every Wednesday in The Richmond Review.
