by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Two years after opening day, the Canada Line continues to spur growth in Richmond, as new high-rises, hotels and shoppers continue to fill the city’s core. At the rapid transit system’s central hub, Bridgeport Station, a new 200-room boutique hotel is two months away from completion. “The Hotel” will add 200 rooms to River Rock Casino Resort’s property. The four-diamond hotel is being constructed atop a transit parkade and is expected to open in late October. Since the Canada Line began service on Aug. 17, 2009, the casino has seen an increase in gaming and non-gaming customers, including Vancouver residents who couldn’t—or wouldn’t—drive across a bridge, said spokesperson Howard Blank. “It’s been very, very positive for us. We immediately saw an increase in visitation to the property.” More people than expected are using the rapid transit line linking Richmond, Vancouver and the airport. Ridership now averages 116,000 per day on weekdays and 107,000 overall, when weekends are included. Developers have pounced on the lure of the line, as high-rises are being built throughout City Centre. One example is Quintet, a five-tower, 950-unit residential development now under construction on No. 3 Road between the Lansdowne and Richmond-Brighouse stations. It’s already sold out, said city spokesperson Ted Townsend. “The result of that is that project is going to be accelerated and completed sooner than originally envisioned.” That, said Townsend, is good news for the community, as the development includes a new community centre and campus for Trinity Western University. Success of condominium sales and the rapid transit line has pushed the owners of a sprawling Capstan Way site to revisit plans for a massive residential project for the fourth time since the late ’90s. Once known as Sun Tech City, the last proposal called for 16 high-rises and 2,136 homes to be built on the seven-hectare (17.2acre) site, along with a new Canada Line station. “We expect that to come back to planning committee in the fall,” said Townsend. “That had been approved at one point but fell apart for a variety of reasons, and so it’s back on the rails again.”

A pair of new towers are also planned near the Richmond-Brighouse Station. That project will create a new centre for buses feeding into the Canada Line. “It will make the movement of buses in and out of the station a little bit more efficient and effective, but hopefully also address some of the concerns the residents have had in that area...” said Townsend. City planners are also in the early stages of developing a program to animate the Canada Line corridor, particularly the plazas around the stations. One idea already backed by civic politicians is to introduce street-side vendors. Local retailers have been welcoming new customers since the transit line’s introduction.

“We’re seeing a lot more people from Vancouver, Surrey and Burnaby than we used to, because it’s so easy with access,” said Bronwyn Bailey, Lansdowne Centre spokesperson. “They can hop on the train and take advantage of the stores that we have in Richmond that they don’t have in other cities.” Positive effects have also been felt by Richmond Centre retailers. “We’re drawing customers from postal codes further into Vancouver and along the Canada Line,” said spokesperson Leslie Matheson. “It’s a good thing because it means people from outside the City of Richmond are coming into Richmond now.” Matheson said the mall has also experienced a shift in traffic. Most notably the entrance nearest RichmondBrighouse Station has seen a triple-digit increase in customers. Aberdeen Centre is experiencing similar trends. Spokesperson Joey Kwan said customers from Vancouver are more easily finding their way to the mall. Ridership numbers support the findings of retailers. Average weekday ridership is 16,000 passengers greater than the 100,000 commuters transit officials had predicted would ride the rails by 2013 or 2014. See Page 3

Martin van den Hemel photo Francis Munroe (right) and his Imperial Hobbies staff will be celebrating 25 years in business this weekend, and locals are invited to come out and help them celebrate.

Imperial Hobbies’ crowning achievement 25 years in business celebrated this weekend at No. 3 Road hobby shop by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter It’s a silver anniversary fit for the Lower Mainland king of hobby stores. Imperial Hobbies owner Francis Munroe first ventured into the business realm in the summer of 1986, and over the past quarter century has grown his shop from humble one-man operation to a regional destination store that employs eight. Today, Munroe and his staff will be celebrating 25 years in business at his store—filled to the rafters with a peerless selection of figurines, car and aircraft model kits, superhero comics, board games and art supplies—near the bustling Canada Line Lansdowne Station at 5451 No. 3 Rd. It wasn’t just hard work, a knowledgeable friendly staff, and a dedicated following that brought Imperial Hobbies the success the store now enjoys. In fact, it was a borrowed idea that played a big part. Before he began making a living from a childhood hobby, Munroe studied to be a mechanical technologist who eventually installed mechanical and plumbing systems, including at B.C. Children’s Hospital. It was the early 1980s, and B.C.’s economy was humming along, to the point that Munroe was hired by Keen Engineering even before he finished school. But then the recession hit in 1984, and

since his line of work was so closely tied to the pulse of the economy, Munroe’s hours became unpredictable from week to week. Munroe got married in 1985, and thought it wasn’t fair to his wife that he didn’t have a steady job. Despite lacking any business acumen, he forged ahead and opened his own business after first taking five months of business courses in accounting, bookkeeping, advertising, and small-business operation. Since his days in elementary school, Munroe has loved playing games, from the role-playing variety to historical versions to board games such as Monopoly and Double Trouble. So it seemed a logical step to try to carve out a living doing something he really enjoyed. And since Richmond didn’t have a hobby store, Munroe thought he’d be filling a void. It was only after he’d committed to the idea that he learned another hobby store, Wizardry Games, was also about to open. Rather than a stroke of bad luck, it turned out to be the opposite. Munroe forged ahead, and hung out his shingle at Imperial Hobbies’ first location, on Anderson Road, where he recalls his first difficult year in business. He opened and closed shop every day, seven days a week. With his fledgling firm’s uncertain future, Munroe and his wife came to an agreement about how long they’d be willing to wait for business to pick up. He was well aware the odds were stacked against him; 80 to 90 per cent of new businesses fail within the first couple of years. But his perseverance paid off, and slowly, his business grew, at first enough to hire casual help that al-

“I thought, maybe I should get into comics too.” - Francis Munroe

lowed him the odd day off. And it wasn’t until about five years in that he brought in full-time help. And it was about that same time that the owner of Wizardry Games bragged about how well he was doing selling comics. Munroe’s ears perked up. “I thought, maybe I should get into comics too.” It proved to be a wise decision. And it’s impact on his bottom line was huge, he said. While Wizardry Games closed long ago, Imperial Hobbies is the only hobby store in town drawing regular customers from as far away as Chilliwack, and airline regulars from Halifax and even Tokyo. Asked how he has fared through the recession, Munroe said he’s already bounced back fully, and is actually doing better than during the pre-recession times. While sales of high-ticket items like cars, furniture and appliances are affected by the recession, people always seem to have $3 for a comic, he said. From today through Sunday, anybody who walks into the store will get a token of appreciation: a chocolate with Imperial Hobbies’ symbol on it. A reminder of Munroe’s sweet success story.

Canada Line use exceeds expectations From Page 1 That prompted TransLink to boost service earlier this month. Sixteen trains now run at the busiest times, up from 14, and peak service levels have been extended

by one hour to 7 p.m. Peak service has also been extended in the mornings, now starting 30 minutes earlier, at 6:30 a.m. According to TransLink spokesperson Ken Hardie,

there’s still room for further expansion, noting the Canada Line can run a maximum of 20 trains. Many travellers and airport staff are also using the Canada Line. According to

Vancouver Airport authority spokesperson Lara Gerrits, 17 per cent of passengers and Sea Island employees use the line to get to YVR—a number that has exceeded expectations.

Lower Mainland berry pickers and other harvesters are being promised a provincial review of minimum wages for farm work won’t leave them earning less than they do now. More than 10,000 pickers are paid piece-work rates based on how much they harvest. Charan Gill, spokesman for Progressive Intercultural Community Services Society, said it appears the province ordered the review in response to complaints of farmers and contractors after indications the minimum piece rates would rise in lockstep with a series of planned increases in B.C.’s minimum wage. “I have no faith they will be fair to the workers,” Gill said, adding the consultant Victoria has hired speaks no Punjabi and therefore won’t get a fair sense of most harvesters’ concerns. A Labour Ministry spokesman said the review may guide any further increases in the piece rates but reducing them is “not under consideration.” Minimum pay rates for pickers range from 16 cents per pound for Brussels sprouts to 40 cents for blueberries, while tree fruit fetches $17 to

$20 per large bin. Those rates climbed 9.4 per cent in May at the same time B.C.’s minimum wage rose to $8.75 an hour. Gill said the rates typically work out to the equivalent of $4 or $5 an hour. “We are saying there should be a living wage for the farm workers,” he said. Gill argues the province should eliminate piece rates entirely in favour of hourly wages. That would also help reform the current system, which critics say is rife with abuse of workers and corrupt accounting practices. Farm contractors routinely pay pickers at piece rates but then convert the amounts to hourly pay on the books as if minimum wages had been paid.

That lets companies record an artificially low number of hours and avoid violating employment standards when pickers work long hours during harvest season. Hours are sometimes later adjusted back upward so workers are credited the minimum number of hours to qualify for employment insurance. Employers sometimes demand kickbacks for such revisions. Federal tax auditors have prosecuted dozens of Lower Mainland pickers before for EI fraud over their role in such schemes, although most employers have avoided punishment. “There should be a total survey of the farm industry to clean up this thing,” Gill said. B.C. Federation of Labour president Jim

Sinclair said Ontario and Quebec both use a system that ensures a minimum wage for farm workers, while retaining a piece rate system that can result in pickers being paid more. “You get paid no less than minimum wage,” he said, adding B.C. should follow suit. “The minimum wage for farm workers should be the minimum wage for everybody else.” Sinclair noted Mexican farm workers here on temporary work permits must be paid minimum wage, adding it’s bizarre that permanent B.C. residents get treated worse. The consultant handling the review is to report back by the end of October, just before the minimum wage rises another 75 cents on Nov. 1.

Riot charges still ‘months away’ by Jeff Nagel Black Press

Vancouver Police Chief Jim Chu says charges against Stanley Cup rioters can’t be rushed into court without risk of weakening the ensuing prosecutions. He spoke out Wednesday, defending the more than two-month wait so far for charges to be laid in the June 15 crime spree that saw mobs torch cars and loot dozens of stores downtown. “If we rush cases to court, we risk losing them by being ineffective and inefficient,” Chu told reporters. “If you are in favour of speed, you are in favour of more acquittals and lighter sentences.” The chief sought to calm public demands for faster action—especially after hundreds of rioters in Britain were quickly rounded up and charged within days of much more severe civil unrest. “It will take months before all the evidence is processed and we are ready to make arrests,” he said, adding he shares the public’s frus-

tration. “Canada is not Britain. Our laws are different, our courts are different and our riots are different.” Unlike the U.K., where police lay charges directly, police in B.C. forward recommendations to Crown counsel, who approve charges. The video evidence of the rioters after the Canucks’ Game 7 loss is also different. Unlike the mix of camera phone images captured by onlookers and store surveillance video recorded in Vancouver, British investigators are armed with government-run surveillance camera recordings that are less subject to dispute over possible doctoring. Police have identified 259 separate crimes so far, Chu said, each incident involving as many as 300 individuals. A total of 268 suspects have been identified so far, he added. A total of 41 people have turned themselves in so far. But while charges might seem simple in at least those cases, Chu said care is still required.

He said some people confessed to a minor infraction at the riot, hoping to avoid prosecution on more serious charges—which detailed examination of videos show are warranted. “Some people have been brought in by their parents when there is actually no evidence that we can identify that they committed a criminal act.” The VPD is collaborating with an Indiana-based crime lab and an international association of investigators with expertise in video analysis to help comb through the 1,600 hours of riot footage in weeks rather than the up to two years Chu said might be needed if handled solely by local police. Chu also said a new website will soon be launched to keep the public apprised of the investigation’s progress, a step he called highly unusual. That will display the photos of 150 new riot suspects on whom police are seeking information. “No one is more frustrated than I am that every last one of them is not before the courts or in prison as we speak.”

Trucker who tied up tunnel fined $115 Monday spill blocked traffic for four hours by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter The driver responsible for a four-hour commuter headache at the George Massey tunnel on Monday afternoon, has been fined $115. RCMP Cpl. Aaron Sproule said the driver of a truck hauling a shipping container was charged under the commercial transport

act, after the container struck the Rice Mill Road overpass in the southbound lane of Highway 99 around 4:30 p.m. The impact with the cement overpass sent the container tumbling to the ground, finally coming to a rest against a median near the entrance to the tunnel. “We got very lucky on a couple of points,” Sproule said, noting that nobody was killed and as far as he was aware, there were no injuries either. Considering the time of day the accident occurred, when traffic normally congests the tunnel, the fact another vehicle wasn’t involved bordered on miraculous. Sproule said police recommend

defensive driving techniques, such as keeping a minimum of two vehicle lengths between vehicles, especially at highway speeds. The two-second rule is also a good one to follow. That might have saved somebody’s life on Monday. The resulting traffic chaos from the tunnel’s closure left many drivers stuck in gridlock for four hours or more. Accidents on the Alex Fraser Bridge and Queensborough Bridge at about the same time, didn’t help. No word from the Ministry of Transport about the extent of the damage, if any, to the overpass.

by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter There’s never a good place for a street race, but the spot picked by one local couldn’t have been much worse. Richmond resident Kyle Matthew, 23, made his first appearance in Richmond provincial court on Thursday, where’s he’s facing two counts each of street racing causing bodily harm, impaired driving causing bodily harm and leaving the scene of an accident causing bodily harm. It was a tad more than a year ago that Gatz was allegedly involved in a crash near Minoru Boulevard and Granville, where the Richmond RCMP detachment happens to be. Police investigators say the accident occurred around 10 p.m. on Aug. 13, 2010, and that the driver fled the scene. Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said Gatz was arrested a short time later, and the charges that came down this week were the result of an investigation.

Steveston becomes Storybrooke again Filming resumes of anticipated ABC series by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Shooting of the ABC TV fantasy series Once Upon a Time resumed Wednesday in Steveston, where more than a few wide-eyed locals were entranced as series star Jennifer Morrison drove around the transformed fishing village in a vintage yellow Volkswagen Beetle. Morrison plays Emma Swan, a bail bonds collector who gave up her son for adoption a decade earlier, only to be reunited with him, and told she’s actually the daughter of Prince Charming and Snow White. Sporting ringlets in her hair, Morrison is best known for her work on hit TV series House, where she played Dr. Allison Cameron.

Bits of Steveston are already included in a trailer of the show on YouTube: http://tinyurl. com/onceinsteveston. If the TV show becomes a ratings success, that could be a boon to Steveston, much like the recently-ended TV series Smallville which shot in Cloverdale for many years.

One local, who watched filming of a couple of scenes, said Morrison was driving the Beetle, and a young man—presumably her character’s son, Henry, played by Jared Gilmore—was seated in the back seat during one scene, and in the passenger seat during another. Moncton Street storefronts were transformed again, as Steveston became Storybrooke, Maine, with a Storybrooke elementary school bus and Storybrooke sheriff’s cruiser

Convicted drug trafficker sought for deportation A convicted drug trafficker, whose last known address was in Richmond, is being sought by Ottawa for deportation. On Thursday, Canada Border Services released a list of individuals who are the subject of a Canada-wide warrant for their removal. Xun Zhang, who also goes by the aliases Ricky Zhang, Tim Xun Chen, Tim Wong, XUN ZHANG Sam Cheng and Zhang Xun, is considered inadmissible in Canada for “serious criminality,” the agency said. Zhang, 32, has also been convicted of assault, robbery, theft and conspiracy to produce a controlled substance. Anybody who has seen Zhang is asked to take no action, and instead report him to Border Watch Line at 1-888-502-9060.

A famine so devastating it’s put 12 million Africans at risk of starving to death has prompted one local citizen to organize a local fundraising event to help. On Sunday, Aug. 28 at 2 p.m. a fundraising walk will be held at Garry Point Park. Participants are encouraged to collect pledges and run or walk one to 10 kilometres. “I don’t like to see people suffer,” said Richmond’s Orval Chapman, the event organizer. All funds will go to Oxfam and will be used to help the people suffering in the Horn of Africa—where Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia are hardest hit. The Canadian government has pledged to match donations dollar-fordollar. The region is suffering under the most severe drought in decades, as insufficient rains have destroyed crops and killed livestock. Malnutrition and disease is on the rise as people are travelling long distances in search of food. Record high food prices, internal conflicts and insecurity in the region are making the situation worse. Oxfam and other agencies are on the ground helping provide emergency food supplies and health care to the people. For more information, contact the Oxfam B.C. office in Vancouver at 604-736-7678.

your trust in? That’s essentially what a new poll on pesticides asks. Funded by an industry trade association that represents the interests of chemical companies, the poll reveals not everyone thinks pesticides should be banned.

Not everyone thinks they’re a health risk. In fact, synthetic pesticides are useful in fighting insects and weeds inside and outside the home, the poll suggests. A recent study published this month in the journal Diabetes Care suggests there’s a link to pesticides and diabetes. Other studies have suggested synthetic pesticides have the potential to cause various human cancers. Health Canada has no problem with homeowners dumping Killex on their lawns—a fact the pesticide industry constantly reminds us of. But the Canadian Cancer Society wants a ban on the use and sale of these cosmetic products because of their potential to cause harm to human health. So who can you trust? That’s up to each of us to determine. We should instead be asking our-

file photo Michelle Li is one Richmond mom who took action against the use of pesticides prior to the city developing a bylaw banning their cosmetic use on residential lawns and city property.

selves: Is it worth the risk? Why use toxic pesticides if there’s a possibility it could be a long-term danger to our health? Relying on Health Canada to govern the industry is foolhardy. The federal agency is more reactive than proactive.

Take bisphenol A, for example. The toxic plastic substance used in No. 7 plastic has been found to leech into food products it surrounds. Yet, Health Canada only declared it toxic last fall—well after retailers voluntarily pulled such plastics from its shelves over health

concerns. And while Health Canada has banned the use of the unnatural chemical in baby bottles, you can still find BPA in toys and food packaging, despite it being shown to mimic the hormone estrogen. It should come as no surprise to most of us that

cancer rates are on the rise. Most people know someone—a friend, a family member, a colleague—who has been hit with cancer. Especially when organic substitutes exist, why take the risk with pesticides just to kill a weed or knock out a few bugs?

Fruit harvest in Richmond is here

t’s that time of the year. Plums are starting to ripen, apples are beginning to colour, and some have already begun to be converted to sauce. The fruit harvest is here. I know most people think of apples and pears as having to come from the Okanagan but this region grows some fantastic fruit. Judging by the bounty that comes out of Richmond backyards,

golden and Italian plums, transparent and Gravenstein apples, and bosc pears grow abundantly here. For the 10th year, a group of volunteers is assembling to collect backyard fruit that can’t be used by the owners. Founded by Mary Gazetas, Ann Mackie, Jane Wheeler, Diane Eward, Brenda Crockett and a number of committed volunteers, the project has donated over 30,000 lbs of fruit to the Richmond Food Bank since 2000. Any fruit not able to be eaten fresh is converted into sauce, jams, and pie filling to be used by the community meal programs. My own fruit trees are still small enough that we use every bit, even the windfalls, for fresh eating, applesauce and dried apple rings. But, I’m grateful to know that if things got out of control,

I could call someone to give me a hand and that that fruit would be donated to people in need. For the last three years, Geoff Snell has coordinated the backyard fruit picks in Richmond. He gets the job of answering calls from fruit tree owners, assessing how much fruit is available, and scheduling volunteers to come and pick the fruit. Moving boxes, fruit picking poles and ladders is all his responsibility. I’ve participated in a few of the backyard picks, which took me to backyards in Hamilton and in Steveston. It’s nice to know there are still some substantial fruit trees in Richmond. I’ve met some great volunteers as well who also share recipes on how to use the fruit. Pears, poached in apple juice, with cinnamon and cloves are still a favourite with my family. The Fruit Tree Project

still needs volunteers. Poor Geoff has had to tackle a few major trees by himself so if you can spare a couple of hours after work, he would love a hand. In addition, if you know of any fruit trees in your neighbourhood that aren’t being picked, please ask the owners to give the fruit picking line a call. Telltale signs are fruit lying on the ground and a cloud of wasps flying gleefully around the fermenting fruit. The phone line for fruit tree owners to contact the Richmond Fruit Tree Project is 604-244-7377. If you would like to volunteer, please e-mail coordinator@richmondfoodsecurity.org.Those on Twitter can also find out when the latest picks are by following @ rfoodss. Although the idea of fruit tree projects isn’t new, I know many communities have looked

I know most people think of apples and pears as having to come from the Okanagan but this region grows some fantastic fruit.

Also, a huge thank-you to all those who have helped pick and donate fruit. Richmond is all the sweeter for it!. Arzeena Hamir is co-ordinator of the Richmond Food Security Society.

Garry Point pier expenditure was wasteful Editor: The City of Richmond and its core of volunteers should be commended for the high quality of this year’s Maritime Festival. It was enjoyable, well organized, and attracted a large contingent of visitors to the city’s historic shipbuilding and fishing industry sites. Well done Richmond. Walking down the pier along Britannia Heritage Shipyards to view the array of boats on display, however, it was clear that the Richmond Ships to Shore event could easily have been accommodated at this venue. There was no need to build a new pier at Garry Point Park, or to spend $2 million in tax dollars on a structure that virtually no one wanted, and which, with some exceptions, has been closed to the public ever since the tall ships left town (the closure is not surprising, given that the pier is located in a fast current and rocks violently every time a large vessel goes by). I was struck by the wastefulness of the Garry Point pier expenditure again when I read Coun. Greg Halsey-Brandt’s recent missive on government spending and tax dollars. In a period of slow economic recovery, it’s high time that the City of Richmond stop spending our tax dollars on projects like the Garry Point pier and the $2-million train shed unless they have consulted the citizens of Richmond, and there is clear public support for those projects. Terry Davis Steveston

Good policing is worth investing in Editor: Re: “No political appetite to to dump RCMP,” Aug. 12. Richmond council has no appetite for anything that involves change, so no surprise here that they don’t want to seriously consider ending the RCMP reign here in Richmond. I think RCMP problems a comment was that “for are systemic every bad thing there is probably 10 good things to and go right to counter.” the top. So no Well that’s works with apples maybe but this amount of rais a police force. RCMP tionalizing will problems are systemic and make a case for go right to the top. So no amount of rationalizing will keeping them. make a case for keeping them. Leadership, training, attitude and policy are all suspect here and it’s painfully obvious. Of course there may be costs to consider, but policing (and good policing) is very important and all of a sudden council is concerned about what they might have to burden the taxpayers with? They had no problem shoving the Olympic Owe-val down our throat and some senseless art exhibits. Not to mention the new smart meters which we will be guinea pigs for and you can be sure there’s more money involved for someone and it’s not us. This RCMP problem not only lowers moral of the force it lowers moral of the people for who they are supposed to serve. So council should think long and hard before giving this issue a rubber stamp and harnessing Richmond to more of the same. Don’t forget the election folks. Dean Beauvais Richmond

letters Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to pathways without obstacles Editor: Richmond is a nice city to walk around. The streets are flat and the views are great. We all know the many benefits of walkingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;no wonder Richmondites are healthy people. Side-street pathways are just enough for two people walking side by side. Without any other distraction on the sides, these pathways are perfect for couples walking. But for sure, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not the only one who notices the plants that block portions (if not all!) of many parts of these walkways. In some areas, pathways are hardly passable at all. People have to step to the busy street to avoid it. The full width of these pathways should be free from destruction. I think it is just a matter of property owners to be responsible for this small problem. Or, does it need to be reported to the city hall? These pathways are designed for people to walk safely and it will encourage more people to walk, specially if it is free from blockage. Ricky Conanan Richmond

Feeling like a tourist in my own town Editor: Richmond, a place Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve called home for my entire life. It has been a wonderful place to live. I used to love it. Unfortunately, devastating changes have made me feel like a tourist in my own city. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a song that resonates with me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You are a Tourist,â&#x20AC;? by Death Cab for Cutie. In all my 53 years here Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been able to read the signs but not anymore. There seems to be a growing trend to advertise in Simple Chinese. This is on a storefronts, bulletin boards and vehicles quite often in

100 per cent Simple Chinese. I ďŹ nd this to be discriminating and offending. As a community, I know we have people from all over the world who have called Richmond their home. These people have respected the Canadian culture and the local people. I contacted city hall and they told me they have many inquiries about this subject. We desperately need some house rules. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time our municipal, provincial, federal elected ofďŹ cials legislate protection for our ofďŹ cial English language. Kerry Starchuk Richmond

Editor: The estimated population of Richmond is more than 190,000. For a city of that size can someone in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trafďŹ c signal department tell me why there is no left turning signal for trafďŹ c travelling south on No. 5 Road turning left onto Steveston Highway (towards the tunnel)? It has to be one of the busiest intersections in the Lower Mainland. It took us half-an-hour to turn left as one semi-truck after another got through the light one at a time and this was not rush hour. Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; get with the program! Apparently trafďŹ c signals are expensive to install, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure with all the dollars the city is receiving from building permits for new commercial and housing construction it can well afford it. Just do something about itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time! Leslie MacDougall Richmond

FOOD SCRAPS: NOT GARBAGE! Richmond has made dramatic progress over the past 20 years in reducing the amount of waste which otherwise ends up in the landfill. Although over half of all our garbage is now being diverted, the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to increase that much more in the next few years. This is an important aspect of Richmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental sustainability.

Richmond is a leader in Canada in composting food scraps. And we are also home to one of the largest organics recycling operations in North America. Organics are collected from around the region and treated in east Richmond. When leading environmentalist Al Gore visited Metro Vancouver last year, this was the primary site he inspected.

The Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Green Canâ&#x20AC;? initiative for recycling food scraps along with lawn trimmings is the latest addition to our recycling programs. Almost all single family homes in Richmond use the Green Cans. A similar service has been added as a pilot project for many multi-family dwellings. Food scraps alone comprise 20% of the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waste stream. By composting food scraps, they are converted back to soil.

The City of Richmond continues its environmental leadership with the Green Can program for the benefit of future generations. By diverting more waste to composting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we reduce our waste and improve our environment for future generations.

Get cooking with fresh horseradish, transparent apples and potatoes

Food for Thought Arlene Kroeker

checked my favourite farms this week. At Cherry Lane Farm (on Beckwith behind Costco), I walked the dirt road to the shop draped in grape vines. Arlene Kroeker photo Jeremy Gens, next generation farmer at GJ Farm, with his favourite summer produce, peaches.

Ladders leaned against cherry trees, a red tractor sat idle on the road, fields rippled with rhubarb, zucchini, romano and green beans, lettuce, acorn, buttercup and butternut squash. The apples will be

of Steveston Hwy. New German yellow potatoes, pink and green romano beans, green tomatoes, sweet onions, garlic, cauliflower, transparent apples, long beets, cabbages the size of a football (perfect for cabbage rolls), dill cukes, bread and butter cukes, as well as pickling dill. Lyudmila Gens also sells her pickles (there’s a demand) and her pickled salad. What caught my attention? Large mason jars of honey (only $22 each) and chunks of horseradish. Horseradish is best used freshly grated and raw. Scrub the root with a stiff brush and peel off the dark skin before using. In larger roots, the core may be fibrous and bitter. Remove and discard core. Like the allium family, the finer horseradish is chopped or grated, the more pungent the flavour. See Next Page

Free employment counselling for immigrants Are you an immigrant who is looking for a job? If so, then register for a free half-hour employment counseling session at the Brighouse (main) branch of Richmond Public Library to learn better job search skills and find out about useful resources. The library is located at 7700 Minoru Gate. Please register at the second floor information desk at the Brighouse branch or call 604-231-6413. The sessions are held from 10 a.m. to noon in the large seminar room in the silent study room and are offered in Cantonese, Mandarin and English. There is a limit of half-hour per session and one session per person. Registration is necessary. The employment counselors are from the Richmond Career Centre of Immigrant Services Society. The sessions will take place on the following Wednesdays: Sept. 14, Sept. 28, Oct. 12, Oct. 26, Nov. 9, Nov. 23, Dec. 7 and Dec. 21. “Richmond Public Library and employment counselors from the Richmond Career Centre of Immigrant Services Society are working together to offer these useful sessions to immigrants in our community,” said the library’s co-ordinator of multilingual services, Wendy Jang. “The one-onone sessions are free, but each person is limited to one session only. “It doesn’t matter when you came to Canada; you don’t need to be a recent immigrant to attend these sessions.” The sessions are for people who speak English, Cantonese or Mandarin. “Employment counselors will meet one-onone with job seekers to assess their job search techniques and advise them on how and what they need to do to look for a job. Job seekers who need extra help will be referred back to either the Richmond Career Centre to get further assistance,” added Jang. For more information, call 604-231-6413 (English) or 604-231-6462 (Chinese).

From horseradish to apple cake From Page 12 The easiest way to grate horseradish is to use a food processor. Cut root into cubes and pulse. The fumes will be strong and can burn your nose and eyes. Open a window and remove the lid at arms length and turn your head away. One tablespoon of fresh grated horseradish equals two tablespoons of bottled prepared. A few ideas: •For homemade prepared horseradish, just add white vinegar and salt to taste while processing. Store in a glass jar in the fridge for up to six weeks. •Fold 1 tbsp freshly grated horseradish into stiffly whipped heavy cream and add salt to taste for a classic horseradish sauce to accompany beef dishes. •Add 1 tbsp freshly grated horseradish to 1 cup of applesauce for a piquant condiment to pork dishes. Speaking of applesauce, the transparent apples I saw at GJ Farm make excellent applesauce. Peel, core, and slice 7 or 8 transparent apples and place in a pot with 1/2 cup water or

Apple Cake 3 cups flour 1 tbsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 1 cup unsalted butter, softened 1 3/4 cups sugar 3 large eggs, separated 1/2 cup milk 8 transparent apples cored and diced (peeling is optional) Glaze (optional): 1 cup icing sugar 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 1 to 2 tbsp milk or water

efore Harvey and I went on our annual summer getaway to Victoria and Salt Spring I had to decide which book to take.

Never an easy task for a librarian. So I figured I’d try someone that’s new to me – Jennifer Crusie. She’s a staple in the romance genre, but Maybe This Time goes way beyond mere romance. It’s populated with ghosts, troubled children, a housekeeper from hell, a sexy ex husband, a prickly medium and a pushy journalist. And those are just the main characters! This lighthearted romp opens with Andie (Andromeda) Miller going to her ex-husband North Archer’s office so she can give him back 10 years worth of uncashed alimony cheques, in an effort to gain some closure. North, silver tongued devil that he is, convinces Andie to do him one last favour. Knowing she’s capable and level-headed, he asks her to take care of two orphaned kids (for whom he is the newly appointed guardian) just until she can stabilize them enough to bring them back to his home in Columbus. A distant cousin died and left North these kids and a big old house in rural Ohio. The catch is that he’s offering Andie $10,000 a month to keep them safe, healthy and

educated. How could she refuse? Never mind that she’s on the brink of becoming engaged and has her own life to lead. North smooth talks her into going, and Andie soon realizes that she may have bitten off more than she chew. The kids – Carter, 12, and Alice, 9 – are emotionally scarred from losing both parents and several nannies, and are the polar opposite of well-adjusted. The house is haunted with several homicidal ghosts that converse with and possess the residents. And the whack-job housekeeper, Mrs. Crumb, is a lazy lush. And as if that isn’t enough to handle, enter Kelly O’Keefe, an opportunistic journalist

(isn’t that redundant?), and her main squeeze Sullivan (North’s brother); Professor Dennis Graff, a parapsychologist; Isolde Hammersmith, a reluctant medium; North Archer’s mom; Andie’s mom; and Will Spencer, Andie’s almost fiancé. When they decide to hold a séance to try and talk sense into the harassing ghosts, all hell breaks loose. For a woman who doesn’t want to have kids of her own, Andie grows very attached to Alice and Carter. And wouldn’t you know it, one of the ghosts haunts Andie nightly and makes her keep having sexy dreams about North. You just know from page one that this is going to turn into a “one-big-happy-family” story, but who cares. While it’s not exactly high literature, it sure as heck was a fun way to pass the time on the beach. I’m all for light, escapist novels—when I’m not busy reading Dostoyevsky or Plato, that is. So go for it. Shelley Civkin is communications officer with Richmond Public Library. Her column appears every Thursday in The Richmond Review.

The pros and cons of learning in the digital age The world has quickly become digital, and the younger generations are leading the pack with technology that just may make some other items obsolete. As pre-teens and teenagers routinely turn to digital devices for entertainment and schoolwork, the face of education may change as well. In the past students toted notebooks (the paper kind), pencils, pens, and folders to school. Today, students carry digital devices like computer tablets, notebooks (the electronic kind), smart phones, and other digital devices to the classroom. Furthermore, texting and instant messaging have replaced traditional modes of casual conversation. Another item that may go the way of the dinosaur is the printed book. Students can now carry an entire library worth of reading material on a slim e-reader device or on the many other evolving tablettype machines. There may be a day when one no longer browses the aisles of the school library for a book, but only downloads the text instantly when needed. Some textbooks are already offered in digital format, and some school systems and teachers may opt for the convenience of digital devices. Little data exists as to just how many schools have policies allowing the use of cell phones and other digital devices in class. In the United States, a 2009 U.S. Department of Education survey indicates only 4 percent of public-school teachers say a handheld device is available in the class-

Today’s students will carry digital devices like computer tablets, notebooks (the electronic kind), smart phones, and other digital devices to the classroom.

room every day. But things can change in a short period of time. Digital advantages There are many advantages to going digital. Typing tends to go faster for adept keyboard users, which many youngsters have become since they’ve essentially grown up with computers in the household. This makes note-taking easier. When notes and assignments are saved to a computer, there’s less likelihood of them getting lost, especially if important files are routinely backed up. Data saved on a computer can easily be manipulated into a number of different formats, potentially making it easier to study. Bodies of text can be transformed into charts or pie graphs with many word processing programs. Students can cut and paste important quotes or examples into essays and the like, saving time on homework. In terms of streamlining backpacks, digital readers and other devices eliminate heavy

books and notebooks. This can be seen as a big plus to students who have grown accustomed to carrying around 20+ pounds on their backs from a very young age. As many teachers turn to online resources, such as e-mailing and posting assignments on a personal web site, students almost have to keep up with the times with some sort of tool that has Internet access. Digital disadvantages On the other side of the equation, going digital does have some disadvantages. The decline of penmanship is one of them. In a digital era, people are less likely to write letters by hand or keep up with penmanship in other ways. Some children don’t know what cursive handwriting is and may never learn how to sign their names in “script,” which was a common lesson for other generations. While digital communication does promote social interactions on some levels, there are some who argue that

spending too much time staring at a screen and keyboard compromises the social aspect of going to school and learning in a classroom. Today’s youth are less likely to “talk,” choosing to “LOL”and “TTYL” through texting. Having a wealth of information available on the Internet opens up students to many disreputable sources of content. Some common online encyclopedias are written and edited by regular people who may not have the accurate details of events. Also, having content that is easily cut and pasted opens up the temptation for plagiarism and blurs the lines of how to attribute information to a source correctly. Digital devices may be great learning tools, but they also offer a number of distractions to students. When a student is supposed to be taking notes on a laptop in the classroom, he or she might be downloading music, updating social networking sites, streaming video, or checking celebrity gossip.

community Ban diverts mattresses from landfill Residents now pay fees to support recycling by Jeff Nagel Black Press More than 47,000 mattresses or box springs have been recycled this year since January, when Metro Vancouver banned them from being dumped in the garbage. That’s equivalent to a stack taller than Mount Everest – or a pile that could fill B.C. Place – that might otherwise end up in the landfill. Residents now pay a $20 recycling fee

if they bring a mattress or box spring to a Metro waste transfer station but they usually pay less by going directly to a mattress recycler or by having an old mattress recycled when they buy a new one from a local retailer. Three mattress recycling companies now employ more than 45 people, tearing old beds apart to recover metal, wood, cotton and foam to be processed and re-used. A Metro spokesman said it’s not yet clear whether the new fee to get rid of mattresses has led more people to dump them illegally. Local mattress retailers can be found by visiting www.MetroVancouver Recycles.org.

I

truly apologize that fall fashion is the topic of discussion when the weather is finally heating up. But on the bright side, now is the perfect time to have fall trends in the back of your mind while shopping end-ofsummer-season sales. Typically, such sales would feature, yes, summer apparel, but that shouldn’t stop you from looking for neutral pieces in black, grey, white or camel that could transition into colder weather. Here are some fall 2011 fashion trends to follow.

TWINKLE AND SHINE For light-hearted evening looks, search for dresses or tops in anything that glints with paillettes, sequins, beading and metallic or satin fabrics. Be inspired by the runway looks of Balmain, Calvin Klein and Prada.

POLKA DOTS In the wrong ways, polka dots can look like Minnie Mouse, but this season, designers such as Marc Jacobs, Gucci and Stella McCartney used monochromatic dots as a sophisticated print. Similar to the Swiss dot print stockings, a sheer background makes the print more temptress than juvenile.

EMERALD GREEN, DEEP RED AND HONEYSUCKLE YELLOW These bold, rich hues look stunning on everyone (remember Angelina Jolie at the Oscars last year?) and in any silhouette. Gucci sent multiple looks with shades of jade, emerald and teal in everything from fur to scarves. Red is a bold, loud colour that is not for everyone’s liking, but it was on so many runways including Fendi, Gucci, Celine and Miu Miu that it’s hard not to mention. Yellow is also not a typical favourite colour choice, but perhaps with the popularity of orange this past summer, maybe the looks from Givenchy (with a beautiful panther, iris and chain print), Marc by Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler will change your mind.

NEUTRAL FLORALS This almost seems like an oxymoron, but neutral florals surprisingly have an elegant,

PYTHON It is refreshing to see pieces in python that aren’t just in a stiff snakeskin material.

Brian Meier determined not to rest on laurels From Page 20

“This week I had nothing going on. The first couple of days were nice but then you start to get bored.” This has been a particularly rewarding year on the hardwood for Meier, 29, who just last weekend coached the under-15 Basketball BC boys’ red (development) team to top spot at the Western Canada Games in Kamloops. The team, which was undefeated, featured 14-year-old Arnold Jr. Macalipay who played for Meier’s Grade 10 squad at Hugh McRoberts Secondary last season. Macalipay led the tournament in assists and was selected an all-star. Overall, Meier guided the under-15 provincial team to a 25-5 record this summer. In addition to winning the Games, the squad also won its pool at the Northwest Premier Shootout in Seattle and earned tournament titles in Lynden and Blaine. Back in March, while Meier was busy guiding his junior team at McRoberts to within six points of a berth in the zone playdowns, he was also an assistant coach with the B.C. AAA high school boys’ champion R.C. Palmer Griffins. “I am grateful to (cohead coaches) Paul Eberhardt and Ryan Strachan for welcoming me back to be part of this group, which I coached when they were younger,” he said. “The Grade 12s were a special group

“I can’t stand not being good at something I care about, so I was able to realize if I was one of the last guys off the bench that was telling me something.” - Brian Meier for me because we won the B.C.’s in Grade 9. I said then that this group would be special if they stuck together and it was an incredible experience seeing this group of guys grow up.” The McRoberts players aren’t as naturally talented as the Palmer kids, says Meier, but their commitment to improve and their work ethic is as great as any he’s ever seen. “Part of that is because almost all of them are also rugby players,” he explains. “And you’re not going to last in that sport if you don’t have that level of respect.” Five-foot-five point guard Macalipay exemplifies the Striker spirit. And Meier expects he’ll continue to improve this coming season along with the remainder of what may be the youngest team at the senior level in the province. The bulk of the Strikers will be Grade 10s, with likely only one or two Grade 12s. Meier isn’t forecasting any B.C. titles for McRoberts just yet, but he does think the Strikers could contend for a provincial AA championship in as early as two years. “To me there’s nothing better than being part

of a team working hard and sharing success,” he says. Meier must see a little of himself in the Strikers. He isn’t much taller today than the five-footsix he was in Grade 6 at Walter Lee Elementary, when he made his formal hoop debut. “I was the tallest kid in the school in Grade 6 and (playing post) the leading scorer on the team,” Meier says. “The only other guy taller in the school was (future Richmond Colt star) Brian Host who was already six-foot-six in Grade 7.” But a couple of years later, when Meier got to high school at Palmer, his growth spurt stalled and he found himself adjust-

ing to an unfamiliar role as a backup point guard. Though frustrated by the reduced playing time, he had already begun to realize if he wanted to stay in the game he loved it would probably have to be in a different capacity. At 16, he’d convinced Palmer’s then-athletic director Steve Glover to let him coach the Grade 8 girls’ team. “I can’t stand not being good at something I care about, so I was able to realize if I was one of the last guys off the bench that was telling me something,” he says. “In my mind I knew what I needed to do, but my body was not letting me do it. I did other things like scorekeeping but it’s not the same as being part of a team, so the only position left was to coach.” But to suggest his foray into coaching was met with instant success would be an understatement.

auto review

Highlander is a perfect travel partner by Neil Moore Special to Black Press As usual, I try to line up the ideal vehicle for each family vacation, and this year it was the 2011 Toyota Highlander. Fit and finish too is typical of Toyota, with tight seams, a nice mix of materials and every control, button and knob functioning precisely and without looseness or wiggle. My tester, the Highlander 4WD V6 ($35,750), was optioned up further with the $4,150 Sport Package, which adds several interior comforts such as leather seating surfaces (heated up front) and three-zone automatic climate control. But the base 4WD vehicle still provides plenty of standard equipment, including keyless entry with hatch release, eight-way power driver’s seat, backup camera, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, 3.5inch multi info display, Bluetooth and six-speaker AM/FM /XM/CD/ MP3/WMA audio system with aux and USB inputs and steering wheel controls. On the outside, you get 17-inch alloys, heated power mirrors and power tailgate with jam protection. I like the flip-up rear glass, which allows you to drop in a few lastminute items without opening the entire tailgate and watching the

Toyota Highlander 4WD V6 2011 BODY STYLE: mid-size SUV DRIVE METHOD: frontengine, four-wheel-drive ENGINE: DOHC 3.5 Litre DOHC, 24-Valve V6 (270 hp and 248 lb/ft of torque) FUEL ECONOMY: 12.6/8.7 L/100 km (city/hwy) PRICE: Highlander 4WD V6 $35,750; with Sport Package (as tested) $39,900 works spill out on the driveway. The Sports package also adds a couple of exterior goodies like 19inch aluminum alloys and power moonroof. All this brings the price well north of $40,000, once you tack on freight and other fees, so if your budget is tight, consider the front-drive, four-cylinder Highlander that starts at $31,500. Powered by a 2.7-litre inline four (187 hp, 186 lb/ft), this model is also well equipped, although modestly powered.

On the road, the family was well taken care of in the Highlander’s hushed cabin. The vehicle’s tight seams, wind-smooth underbody and good aerodynamics contribute to this, as does a quarter liner in the rear wheel housing. Both kids were comfortable in the 40/20/40 second row. It does have a middle position, but it’s narrow and minimally padded, with a backrest that doubles as a drop-down armrest. My recommendation would be to fold and remove it, after which it can be cleverly stowed under the large front console. Separation between the kids on any long trip is always a plus. All V6 Highlanders come standard with a 3.5-litre, 24-valve engine that delivers 270 horsepower and 248 lb/ft of torque. Power is routed through a five-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift mode, delivering quiet, smooth, yet brisk acceleration. Indeed, the Highlander is no wimp in terms of launch, and will get you up to speed surprisingly quick. Keep in mind, however, the 12.6/8.7 L/100 km (city/hwy) fuel economy rating goes out the window if, like me, you’re a bit heavy on the pedal. Overall, the Highlander was the perfect travel partner, delivering a cosseted ride, ample power, and more importantly, no drama.

Mazda is planning to be one of the greenest automotive makers on the planet applying new thinking to a known power source—the internal combustion engine. By next year consumers will be able to buy Mazdas featuring major fuel savings and emission reductions with no compromise in driving dynamics. Several years of work are now coming together in a new generation of gasoline and diesel engines, improved model aerodynamics, vehicle weight reduction, new chassis and transmission developments that are all embraced within Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology. SKYACTIV focuses on four central technologies: • New generation SKYACTIV-G gasoline engine efficiency that delivers a 15 per cent increase in fuel economy and torque.

• The introduction of new SKYACTIV-D diesel engine technology that delivers a 20 per cent fuel economy improvement thanks to the world’s lowest dieselengine compression ratio. • The introduction of new six-speed automatic transmission available on both gasoline and diesel as well as a new lightweight compact six-speed manual transmission which deliver fuel economy and therefore emission improvements. • An all new platform providing highly rigid body and chassis that achieve outstanding crash safety performance while being 110 kg lighter than predecessor. The gasoline engine is a new 2.0—litre with a compression ratio of 13-1 that will be increased to 14-1 buy the time it goes

into production. That makes it currently the world’s highest compression mass production gasoline engine on the market. For instance the Ferrari Italia has a compression ratio of 12-1. The result is a claimed 15 per cent decrease in fuel consumption and 15 per cent more power using normal regular gasoline. To get there, Mazda engineers used a 4-2-1 exhaust system like a Formula One car, a stratified air/fuel mixture and pistons (pictured) that are 20 per cent lighter and incorporate a central depression on the piston crown that adds more downward thrust at the point of ignition aided by a longer stroke. —by Jim Robinson

Mazda Tribute GS-V6 2011 BODY STYLE: Compact SUV. DRIVE METHOD: front-engine, front- or allwheel-drive. ENGINE: 3.0-litre DOHC V6 (240 hp, 223 lb/ft) FUEL ECONOMY: FWD 10.9/8.0L/100 km (25.9/35.2 mpg) city/highway; AWD 11.5/8.7L/100 km (24.6/35.5 mpg) city/highway. TOW RATING: 1,588 kg (3,500 lb) PRICE: Base GX-I4, $23,450; GS-V6 as tested with AWD, $30,300

Mazda’s compact SUV is a Tribute to solid engineering by Jim Robinson Special to Black Press It all started with zoom, zoom, zoom. It was much more than a catchline to a decadelong series of commercials. It helped define Mazda as the fun-to-drive brand of cars and trucks. Yes trucks and, believe it or not, the first time the “zoom zoom” song was heard was not on the Miata or RX-8 sportscars but the 2001 Tribute compact SUV. And while it is the oldest vehicle in the Mazda portfolio, the Tribute is still selling well. Then as now, there are three basic versions starting with the GX-I4 powered by Mazda’s tried-andtrue 2.5-litre DOHC four-cylinder engine producing 171 hp and 171 lb/ft of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard with an available sixspeed automatic. Optional on the GX and standard on the midrange GS-V6 and GT-V6 is a 3.0-litre DOHC V6 making 240 hp and 223 lb/ft of torque with the six-speed manual as standard. Front-wheel-drive is standard on the GX and GS. Standard on the GT and optional on the GX and GS with automatic transmission is Mazda’s Active Torque Split All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) system. Tested here is the GS-V6. In FWD fuel consumption is 10.9/8.0L/100 km (25.9/35.2 mpg) city/ highway. In AWD form (as tested) fuel usage is rated at 11.5/8.7L/100 km (24.6/35.5 mpg) city/ highway. Sixteen-inch alloy wheels with 235/70R16 allseason tires are standard across the board. Dynamic Stability Control, traction control and Roll-Over Stability Control are all standard. Mazda has had a lot of time to get things right on the Tribute so they have kept things simple without a lot of extras that people rarely use. It is also a very robust vehicle that gives the sensation it is up to more than just back country lanes. And while I wouldn’t go way off-road, I wouldn’t shy away from rock strewn earthen paths either. With the V6 and AWD, towing up to 1,588 kilograms (3,500 pounds) is possible, which is pretty good for any compact SUV. Suspension is the same as the Escape with MacPherson coil over struts at the front while the rear is a multi-link system with lateral links and coil springs. The main difference between the two trucks is the suspension of the Tribute is beefed up for a more sporty ride in keeping with the Mazda image of fun to drive. If you look around, you’ll see a bunch of Tributes on the road, many belonging to repeat buyers. Do they know something you don’t know? Take a 2011 Tribute for a spin before they’re all gone and find out.

auto review

by Neil Moore Special to Black Press

S

ome question the wisdom of a non-premium automaker building premium cars, but I think it’s quite clever. Over the course of a decade, the swift succession of Hyundai’s XG300, XG350 and Azera sedans, along with the Veracruz crossover and finally the Canadian and North American “Car of the Year” Genesis Sedan, has virtually wiped out all but the most painful memories of the Pony and Stellar. These mid-80s rust buckets are no longer millstones around the company’s neck any more than today’s Ford is hobbled by the exploding Pinto and the dissolving Maverick of the ’70s—the latter of which my family had the misfortune to own. It’s a speedy and successful repositioning of Hyundai from cheapand-cheerful to a serious contender in any segment they compete. I would also suggest that despite the lack of brand cachet, the Genesis rear-wheel-drive luxury sedan can hold its own against just about any vehicle in its price range. Which in this case spans an entry point of $39,999 for the base 3.8-litre to $53,499 for the more powerful and fully-loaded Genesis 5.0-litre R-Spec. This sounds like a lot of money for a Hyundai, and for 2012 it’s even more than the current model. The base car has gone up $1,000 and the top-trim, V6 powered Genesis is now priced the same as last year’s 4.6-litre V8. That being said, these

models all benefit from a big bump in power, better fuel economy, an eight-speed automatic (up from six-speed) and more standard and available content. The big news for Genesis is the R-Spec, its single all-in, eight-cylinder trim level, powered by Hyundai’s largest and most powerful engine to-date—the 5.0-litre Tau V8 with gasoline direct injection (GDI). The Tau, which was recently named to the Ward’s 10 Best Engines list, produces 429 hp and 376 lb/ft of torque. This not only bests the previous 4.6-litre V8 engine’s 385 hp and 333 lb/ft, but with an output of 85.8 hp per litre, sits above its naturally-aspirated premium luxury competitors as well. To find the extra power, the cylinder walls were bored out to a larger diameter, and GDI was added—a technology that significantly increases power and torque while simultaneously reducing fuel consumption and emissions. Not that buyers in this segment are necessarily thrifty, but it’s nice to know that the added muscle came without a fuel penalty. The engine is rated at 13.1/8.1 L/100 km (city/hwy), which is nearly identical to last year’s smaller powerplant. The interior of the Genesis remains pretty much the same as last year, but the exterior has been refreshed. The 2012 model now wears a more aggressive front with a larger lower intake and redesigned trapezoidal headlights with striking LED accents. From the side, rocker panels protrude even more, and brushed aluminum window surrounds are a nice touch. The rear has new combination taillamps and dual integrated exhausts in the back bumper. The R-Spec also gets a set of 19inch alloys.

BODY STYLE: Full-size premium sedan DRIVE METHOD: frontengine, rear-wheel-drive ENGINE: 5.0-litre V8 with GDI (429 hp, 376 lb/ft of torque); 3.8litre V6 with GDI (333 hp, 291 lb/ ft of torque) FUEL ECONOMY: 5.0-litre V8 13.1/8.1 L/100 km (city/hwy); 3.8-litre V6 11.1/6.9 L/100 km (city/hwy) SAFETY: 8 airbags, ABS with brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution, electronic stability control PRICE: Genesis 3.8 $39,999; 3.8 w/Premium Package $44,999; 3.8 w/Technology Although the 2012 Genesis enjoys a big bump in power, exterior changes are more subtle. The refreshed model does, however, appear more aggressive with a larger lower intake and redesigned Package $49,499; 5.0 R-Spec $53,499 trapezoidal headlights with striking LED accents.

Ask the Experts Q: What do you do during a comprehensive new patient exam? A:

Every dental school graduate from North America can, or should be able to answer this question because it’s what we’re all taught. The basics involve thoroughly assessing your current level of oral health but the real main point is to be sure we understand what your chief concerns are and your goals. Our goal is to inform you what is going on so you can make informed decisions about what treatment options you need to consider and why. Most People are familiar with the simple examination. We take x-rays, count teeth, look for cavities or defects, assess old fillings and measure the health of the gums and bone around the teeth. However for many new patients that’s inadequate to come up with a proper treatment plan for them. Three other crucial elements need to be included. The first is a biomechanical assessment of how your jaw functions. Your jaw mechanics are determined by the tempomandibular joints (TMJ’s), the jaw muscles (and neck/shoulders) and the teeth. Do the joints click or pop? Can you move your jaw symmetrically or are there limits and or pain. Are there changes showing up in the joints causing warning signs? Are any of the jaw muscles sore or overworked and tight? The muscles put force on both the TMJs and the teeth. Do you clench your teeth? Why? If the bite is off or unbalanced the muscles can become unbalanced and/ or the joints get unevenly loaded or overloaded, etc. Are there enough teeth contacting properly to allow a balanced bite? Do the correct teeth contact when chewing or clenching etc. without other teeth interfering and getting in the way. Are there significant areas of excessive tooth wear because of bruxing (grinding your teeth in your sleep - 20% of people do this). Problems with one aspect of these biomechanical components usually cause signs or symptoms of problems in the others. If you already have a funny (problematic) bite and you need some dental work we either must correct the bite first or the new dental work will be made to fit your funny bite (and possibly push you further down the road to future problems). The second most useful component to assessing your situation is models of the teeth set up on a mechanical jaw instrument called an articulator. You and the dentist can see how the bite and biomechanics work and to figure out where the issues (if any) are. If the bite (called your occlusion) is not working/fitting properly then it is difficult to provide dental work that will last. Thirdly, (and surprisingly for most people) is a series of photographs of everything inside your mouth to show you what’s really going on. Next time, where do we go from here….

Q: I have diabetes and take medications to

control my blood sugars. Aside from prescription medications, are there any other natural supplements that you would recommend?

A:

Dr. Greg Nelson Dentist* Restorative, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry

Although prescription medications can certainly help control our blood sugar levels, there are natural supplements that may indirectly help prevent the complications of diabetes, such as heart attacks and strokes. A few examples include a high dose omega 3 supplement to help reduce atherosclerosis, natural fiber supplements to lower blood sugars and decrease bad cholesterol, niacin to increase good cholesterol, and coenzyme Q10 to lower blood pressure. Plus, there are also less studied but possibly effective supplements that may help with diabetes such as cinnamon, bitter melon, and more! Talk to your certified diabetes educator pharmacist today to learn more about natural health and how it can help improve your diabetes.

With any ongoing groin irritation, especially at the start of any sport season, it’s important to look at the integrity of the muscles causing the irritation, as well as the alignment of the pelvic bones. This can be caused by an imbalance between opposing muscle groups (ie. Quadriceps and Hamstrings, where one group is shortened and stronger while the other is lengthened and weaker) that can cause anterior or posterior rotations. With any rotation, compensation in muscles will occur where certain muscles and structures will have to work a lot harder to make up for the imbalance. Scar tissue formation will occur on the tissues as we age, as well as from the general wear and tear due to training. This will cause adhesions within the muscle fibers thus contributing to further muscle tightness. Even though you are stretching to help prevent a groin pull, this injury could also be due to over-stretching the area where too much of the stretching could actually make it worse. The therapists at Evolution Sport Therapy will be able to determine whether or not this ongoing irritation is due to a pelvic misalignment as well as be able to utilize soft tissue techniques to help break up any scar tissue that has formed as a result.

A:

Yes there is. Using a water meter will give you control over your water bill and will allow you to save more money. The water and sewer rates in Richmond are designed so that houses with 5 people or less will naturally pay less money by using a water meter than they would otherwise pay on the annual flat rate.

Metro Vancouver has forecast water rates to increase over the next 5 years by 62%. A water meter will help you avoid the surprise of a larger than expected bill when you pay your utility bill. Water meters are currently being provided by the City of Richmond and installed by Neptune Technology Group for free.

I’ve started my dry land training for the start of hockey season and noticed that I started to get groin pulls throughout my training sessions. At first it started out as an irritation to the area and that only occurred at the end of training. But now I’ve noticed that it’s getting worse with more activity and it’s happening now probably 10 minutes into the session. I’ve been diligent at stretching before, during, and after practice, but my groin still hurts as soon as I start to do any movement. What do I do?

Q: During these hard economic times, is there an easy way to save more money? A:

Richmond families using a water meter are saving over $500 per year on average compared to the alternative flat annual rate for water and sewer. To help even more, water meter bills are sent out every 3 months so that you are not stuck paying such a large amount at the beginning of the year.

Notice I said “who” and not “what.” Hackers don’t care about “what” as the human element is almost always the weakest link in the security chain. Those weak links are generally found at the top of the corporate ladder and with those who deal with e-mail from the public such as HR and sales. Company executives are notorious for ignoring or otherwise getting around their own company’s computer security policies and have the highest security access. They are, by far, the easiest to target as many publish their names, e-mail addresses and client lists on the web. They tend to be from “generation never there” in terms of computer knowledge and hackers act accordingly. It is a simple matter to forge a personal e-mail from a known client to the corporate President with an attached password stealing trojan. This is how our Treasury department was recently hacked by China for example. I see socially engineered password stealing trojans e-mailed to my corporate clients on a fairly regular basis mostly from organised crime and state sponsored hackers. It’s our job at AmuletaTM to spot these attacks and act accordingly. This is called “Personal Cyber Defence Protection” for key company employees and we’re very good at doing it.

Ask the Experts Q: I love my lighter and summer fun hair. How can

Q: What should I ‘do’ to my place before I list it for sale? A:

I keep it looking healthy, and what should I do as fall approaches? I am afraid it may look too washed out!

Get advice from your Realtor before you spend a dime, and consider their advice seriously. They know what the trends are, what Buyers want and look for, and they know what would be money wasted. for example - you are considering buying a new washer/dryer before you list..... do you know if your buyer wants white, red or stainless? do you know if they want heavy-duty or not, or front loading or top? There is no way to know what your buyer will want, and guessing is not the answer. Perhaps consider putting an ‘allowance’ in your listing for the buyer to choose their own style of appliance. That way, they know when they walk in the door that they can have exactly the set they want...... smart huh? or.......you have three nice white new appliances in your kitchen, but the dishwasher is green and old. Should you replace it now? Probably yes.....or consider the allowance idea again or.......does the front door need painting? simple, cheap to do, get it done! is your yard in need of weeding or some cheery colourful plants, get it done! My rule is simple..........consider all of your ‘easier’ options ie cleaning, decluttering, paint, replacing light bulbs, fixing gates etc If a project requires a large sum of money, discuss it with your Realtor and make sure it is the ‘right’ thing to do. We are trained to know how to guide you, and don’t want you to spend money that won’t bring you a good return on the largest investment you own. Included in my service is home-staging and guidance through the pre-list process. As a licensed Realtor, my job is to help you sell your home in a timely fashion, for the best price possible. Call me for a consultation, or call your Realtor, and listen to what they tell you. It will be to your advantage.

Towards the end of any year, it makes sense to look at any investments you own in your non-registered account that are in a loss position, determine if they still meet your needs, and if not, sell them to deliberately realize the capital loss. You can then apply this loss against gains you have realized throughout the year, reducing your net taxable capital gain. If you have no gains in the current year, you can apply the loss against capital gains in any of the three previous years, potentially resulting in a tax reassessment and refund. If you have no Charlie Chan CFP, gains in any of these years, you can carry the loss forward and apply EPC it against future gains.

Maintaining an efficient heating system is a sound strategy for conserving energy and cutting costs during the day to block out the sun. • Have your heating system professionally serviced once a year. • Have your chimney flue, space heaters, water heater and fireplace checked.

it going down more. What do you think about prices as of today? What about gold?

• Clean or replace your heating system filter every month during the heating season. A dirty or clogged filter forces your furnace and fan to work harder, which costs you more. You’ll be warmer for less money, and breathe easier, if you clean or replace your furnace filter often.

Continue to highlight or colour your hair, but ask your stylist to introduce lowlights consistent with your natural color, throughout your hair. Summer hair can easily turn to fall frizz, if you are not careful. The key to healthy and vibrant hair is deep conditioning. At Ego hair salons we recommend a deep treatment by called Fiber cutic with Intro - Cylane. This treatment rebuilds the strength of your hair, and prevents further damage.

Q: I see that silver is lower now than it was in April. I am thinking about buying silver, but I am worried about 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 quite a bit and gold set a record as of press time today at $1815.89/oz. Canadian and $1821.20/oz. US. 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. I have heard there is a trend to selling gold to buy silver. The difference between recognized and unrecognized silver bars is very small. All the silver bars we sell are recognized by major bullion dealers across Canada and are easily tradeable. As of August 18th, 2011 silver is up to $40.55/oz. Canadian. 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.

wondering if chiropractic would help.

There is a wealth of research that links vertebral subluxations (misalignments of the spinal bones) in the neck with head pain. Chiropractors are the only ones trained to correct vertebral subluxations with safe and effective maneuvers called chiropractic adjustments. Pediatric patients will often receive special adjusting techniques that are very gentle to accommodate their developing spines. If your child suffers from head pain consider the toll this condition may be taking on his or her quality of life, school performance and future success. Rather than dealing with symptoms in isolation or masking them with drugs, chiropractors uncover the underlying root of the patient’s headaches and work to stop them at the source. Don’t let your child become a statistic and add to the estimated 10 million youngsters who suffer from chronic head pain. Determine the cause of child’s headaches by scheduling an appointment for a chiropractic evaluation.

“When you’re that age you don’t know all the little nuances of how to be a teacher,” Meier says. “You may think you know the game but you don’t know how make the players become a team, or how read and motivate different individuals.” Fortunately, Meier is a sponge for basketball knowledge and began learning as much as he could from other coaches. One of his first mentors was Eberhardt with whom he at least one thing in common. Eberhardt had started coaching high school basketball at Magee when was about the same age.

“It was kind of funny I was able to work with him,” says Meier, who had read about Eberhardt in the newspaper and wondered ‘Who is this guy?’ “He’s passionate and loves what he does, two qualities you can’t take away from him.” At a professional level, Meier admired former Chicago Bulls’ and Los Angeles Lakers’ coach Phil Jackson. “He was able to work with his best players and still be successful,” says Meier. “I try to instill that in myself.” Like most kids, Meier’s favourite player growing up was Michael Jordan.

ed “unbelievable skills while having the focus and ability to step up in intense, pressure situations.” More recently, Meier has been awed by Victoria’s Steve Nash who went on to earn two NBA MVP awards as a member of the Phoenix Suns. “He’s a guy everyone knew was good, but as a kid didn’t shoot the ball (well),” Meier says. “But he kept improving at Santa Clara University (which he attended on a basketball scholarship). I don’t know if there’s ever been a smater player. He’s not the greatest athlete or biggest, yet he walks circles around the best athletes in the world who try to play defence against him.

Noise Measurement for Aircraft Engine Testing at YVR

Batter up Tyler Hass helped the Richmond City Young Chuckers win the B.C. Junior Tier 2 Baseball Championship recently in New Westminster. Don Fennell photo

Vancouver Airport Authority will conduct a series of noise measurement tests on aircraft engine run-ups the week of August 22, weather dependent. The Airport Authority is building Canada’s first Ground Run-up Enclosure (GRE), a state-of-the-art facility designed to reduce aircraft noise from engine run-ups that are conducted as part of regular aircraft maintenance work. The facility is slated for completion in December 2011. For more information on the GRE or test schedule, visit www.yvr.ca or email noise@yvr.ca. We appreciate your ongoing support while we undertake the construction of this new facility. Vancouver Airport Authority is a community-based, not-for-profit oganization that operates YVR.

When the Richmond Rugby Football Club announced the second Maurice Smith Richmond All-Star Team, a newly-created annual selection of the best the city had to offer in school rugby recently, it reďŹ&#x201A;ected the growing local talent pool in the game. And this year, the selection committee also added a girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team. The all-star teams are named in honour of Smith who was the founder of the RRFC in 1957 and an avid rugby player, coach and fan for many years until his passing in 2009. Rugby in Richmond continued to grow in 2011 as four schools had teams at one or more age levels, and the local club side featured players from 11 different secondary schools. Club spokesperson Graham Haigh said the growth is encouraging, and stressed the Richmond Rugby Football Club is willing to help wherever it can. It is hoped that the memory of Smith will live on through the continued growth and development of rugby within the city, he said. The Hugh McRoberts Strikers senior boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team defeated the H.J. Cambie Crusaders 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;7 at King George Park in May to win the ďŹ rst Richard Evans Challenge Cup, given

The revitalized Crusaders program (AAA powerhouses in the late 90â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and early 00â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) has reignited a long dormant rivalry in the city. Cambie boasted a number of terriďŹ c athletes (as was evident by their 3rd place ďŹ nish in the VSSAA 7â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament) but lacked suitable depth to compete in the AA Tier-I league, opting instead to compete in the second tier of the competition.

McMath fields enthusiastic, competitive side From Page 30

The decision was a smart one, as the Crusaders finished with a winning record, and narrowly lost to Windsor of North Vancouver in the Tier-II final. The team loses a number of players to graduation who have started on the senior team since their Grade 10 years, however Cambie’s junior and bantam teams were both very powerful and this should bode well in the future. For the second year in a row, R.A. McMath Wildcats fielded an enthusiastic team brimming with talent. While the season was full of cancelled and rescheduled games, all of the players thoroughly enjoyed themselves while continuing to learn the game, said Haigh. While the Wildcats had to play their games at nearby Manoah Steves Elementary, the games were well attended and the team was undefeated at home and reached the semifinals of the Tier II AA competition. Haigh expects McMath to field

a strong Bantam Division team next season, while the senior squad will feature many returning players who have been on the team since Grade 10. While Matthew McNair did not field a senior team this year, its Grade 9 boys’ team was the best in the Lower Mainland East Division, recording a number of lopsided score lines. It is hoped the group, combined with a few eager Grade 11s, will allow the Marlins to regroup and rebuild their once proud team, said Haigh. For the first time in recorded history, Richmond boasted two secondary school girls’ teams last season. Joining perennial powerhouse McRoberts, the McMath Wildcats’ freshman year was full of improvement, said Haigh. McRoberts started slow, but with the help of some returning veterans went on to dominate the Vancouver league and held up well in a test match against a disciplined Carson Graham (North Vancouver) side.
