The Richmond Olympic Oval Corporation is proposing to build an Olympic museum inside the oval at an estimated cost of $6 million, The Richmond Review has learned. A delegation of oval and city officials recently pitched the idea to International Olympic Committee brass in Lausanne, Switzerland and received a “very positive” reception, a city spokesperson said. Dubbed “The Richmond Olympic Experience at the Richmond Olympic Oval,” it would become the first museum in the Americas to join the International Olympic Committee’s Olympic Museum Network, which centres around the IOC’s Olympic Museum in Lausanne. It could open as soon as next year. “This is big for Richmond. It’s a big opportunity; it’s a bold opportunity,” said spokesperson Ted Townsend. The project builds on an existing plan to install a $575,000 permanent exhibition at the oval that tells Richmond’s Olympic story. “We realized we had an opportunity to expand the project and make it into a true tourism destination and something the community could really take pride in,” said Townsend. No new city money would go into the bigger project, he said. Instead, sponsors will finance it by contributing cash and in-kind donations. The oval corporation board has given the project preliminary approval, but city council will have the final vote due to the project’s size, said Townsend. Besides being an attraction for tourists and local residents, it would serve as an educational resource and pay tribute to Richmond’s sports history. Early plans call for displays, activities, theatre and museum elements scattered throughout the building and oval plaza. Memorabilia from the IOC and Richmond’s participation in the 2010 Games would comprise the collection. Calgary currently claims to hold the largest collection of Olympic memorabilia in Canada at the Olympic Hall of Fame and Museum inside Canada Olympic Park, but the small facility isn’t an official IOC member museum. The largest Games collection in the world is held by the IOC at its Olympic Museum in Lausanne, an attraction that draws as many as 210,000 visitors each year. Its permanent exhibition tells the story of the late Baron de Coubertin who founded the modern Games, and is filled with Olympic torches and athletic equipment worn by medallists. See Page 7

Family remembers the anguish of 9/11 Roy Santos was in the World Trade Center by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter It’s 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001, and Roy Santos is running late for work. As he hustles past his Manhattan apartment building’s concierge, he offers Arthur McKenna a familiar wink and smile, and rushes out the propped-open front door. Dressed in his trademark khaki pants and a light-coloured shirt, the affable 37-year-old computer systems analyst for Accenture never left his home without at least offering a courteous “Good morning!” On this morning, Roy is off to the Financial District, where he’s been working for the past six months. In his haste, he leaves behind his cell phone, identification and umbrella. Fortunately for him, sunny, clear skies await as he exits the lobby of his East 64th Street highrise and works his way toward Lexington subway station, five New York city blocks away. Roy’s destination after a 25-minute trip aboard the Five Line is the north tower of the World Trade Center, and the 94th floor offices of Marsh and McLennan, the global professional services and insurance brokerage firm where he’s wrapping up his latest assignment for Accenture. His temporary window-side desk overlooks beautiful Downtown Brooklyn and on this day, the breathtaking view is picture perfect. Just a couple nights earlier, Roy had chatted with his older brother Ronald, asking if he wanted something from Timberland Shoes during his regular phone call to the Richmond, B.C. townhouse he once shared with his family. Roy taps away at his computer keyboard, compiles an e-mail containing his personal files earmarked for the computer in his corner eighth-floor studio apartment, and then clicks send one final time at 8:36 a.m. Ten minutes later, a Boeing 767 jetliner smashes at 790 km/h through the 93rd to 99th floors of the World Trade Center’s north tower, obliterating everything. Unbeknownst to his family—some still asleep in the early morning hours in B.C., others just settling down for bed on the opposite side of the world in Manila, Philippines—Santos is one of the first lives taken by the hijackers of American Airlines Flight 11 at 8:46 a.m. Seventeen minutes later, another hijacked 767 passenger jet, United Airlines Flight 175, strikes the south tower.

9/11 memorial ride On Sunday, Sept. 11, the 10th anniversary of 9/11, members of all emergency services will marshal at River Rock Casino Resort at 7 a.m. and will ride en masse to the Peace Arch Border Crossing. Ride director Steve Williams, from the B.C. Ambulance Service, said between 300 and 1,000 participants from police, fire and ambulance departments along with military personnel are expected to take part. The annual ride—“a tribute to all those brave souls who lost their lives in those horrific attacks on September 11th 2001”—normally commences in Vancouver, but this year, it was decided to start the event in Richmond. Escorted by the Vancouver Police Motorcycle Drill Team, the ride will begin at 8 a.m. on Great Canadian Way, with the group escorted onto Highway 99 from the Sea Island Way on-ramp toward the Peace Arch crossing, where a special memorial service is scheduled for 9 a.m. The Canadian Air Force will be doing a flyby. —by Martin van den Hemel

Roy Santos worked for Accenture in New York. On 9/11, he was wrapping up his latest assignment at Marsh and McLennan on the the 94th floor of the World Trade Center’s north tower.

In total, 2,753 people lost their lives in the two towers and immediate surroundings that morning, including more than 400 firefighters and police officers.

Tragic day Ronald Santos and his wife Rosemarie were sound asleep in their Richmond townhome that Tuesday morning when they received a panicked call from Ronald’s mother at around 6 a.m., Pacific time. Aurora Santos, watching a news broadcast in the family’s native Philippines, urged her son to flick on the TV. “I think the World Trade Center is on fire,” she said. As they clear away the cobwebs, they’re shocked by the surreal, confusing images on their bedroom TV set: smoke billowing from one of New York’s signature twin towers. Ronald grabs his phone and tries to reach his younger brother on his mobile phone, but the call gets kicked to voicemail. “Where are you? What’s going on?” he said in a message. A call to Roy’s apartment goes unanswered. In the minutes and hours to follow, the horrific images broadcast to millions of people around the world result in heartache, confusion and a myriad of questions for the Santos family, their friends and coworkers. In an exclusive interview with The Richmond Review, Ronald and Rosemarie shared their story as they prepare to return to New York with their mother and brother Rico, for the 10th anniversary memorial of what is now known as 9/11. Sitting in their living room, decorated with furniture retrieved from Roy’s apartment including a black leather sofa, they share pictures and stories of the man who they often visited in New York. That morning, as he fielded unending calls from concerned family, friends and coworkers, Ronald said he knew his brother had been wrapping up work at Marsh and McLennan that week. But precisely where Roy was working on that day was in doubt, as that firm was in the midst of a merger with the firm Guy Carpenter. Was he on Marsh and McLennan’s 94th floor of the north tower? Or was he on Guy Carpenter’s 50th floor of the south tower, which to that point was unscathed? They watched in utter disbelief as the live television news feed of the twin towers showed a second large passenger jet suddenly strike the south tower. If Roy was in the south tower, they hold out hope he might have been able to escape down the stairwell to safety as the second plane appeared to have struck above where Roy may have been working. As Ronald looked for answers, calling his cousin Joey who lives in nearby New Jersey, and trying to reach Roy’s best friend, Nanette Gonzalez, Rosemarie sent an e-mail to Accenture. As the day went on, and more reports came in about another crash at the Pentagon and a foiled hijacking in Pennsylvania, the Santos family

continued to pray. Perhaps Roy had made it to an evacuation area, and because of the overwhelmed phone system wasn’t able to reach his family to say he was alright. Or maybe he was safe in some hospital. The following day, Roy’s boss at Accenture called in response to an e-mail Rosemarie had left the previous night. Some people did escape, but he didn’t know if Roy was among them, Ronald recounted. But the truth eventually sunk in. Arrangements were quickly made to bring the Santos family to New York, and just a week later, immediate family members of the victims were given access to the site of the towers, which had crumbled to the ground. Ronald said the metallic burning smell that permeated through his white surgical mask was unforgettable. “You feel you’re in hell,” Ronald said, describing what he thought as he stood there. “I was surprised that anybody could do that type of destruction,” he said. It was an “evil deed.” The Santos family returned yearly to New York, paying their respects to their beloved brother and son. And while they’ve tried to move on from the tragedy, each Sept. 11, the reminders are ubiquitous, on the television, radio and in the newspapers, and their wounds re-open. But they acknowledge that this anniversary will be different. “We love Roy and we want to feel him and you feel him there,” Rosemarie said. “You feel like Roy is there. We’re trying to make peace with his passing, but every time 9/11 comes... “We take comfort that hopefully he didn’t feel the pain.”

A happy life Born Rufino Conrado Flores Santos III on Feb. 19, 1964, Roy grew up in Makati City, Philippines and graduated with a degree in industrial management engineering at De La Salle University. At first, he considered studying to become a doctor, but his natural aptitude for computers led him to work for SGV & Co., a Filipino accounting firm which eventually became Arthur Andersen. He lost his father, an accountant, in 1987. The Santos family emigrated to Canada in 1985, and lived in Vancouver for a few years before moving to a townhouse in Richmond in 1989. For a few years, Roy worked at Save-On-Foods’ head office, contributing to the Save-On-More rewards points program that continues today. In 1996, he landed a job with Arthur Andersen in downtown Vancouver, and about a year later, the opportunity arose for him to relocate to either

San Francisco or New York. In tune with his nightlife-loving personality, Roy was lured by the vibrant big-city lifestyle of the Big Apple. Roy loved his new job, the city, the environment. Boasting a large community from the Philippines, Roy soon after met a fellow Filipino in his first New York rental apartment: Nanette Gonzalez. Since 9/11, whenever the Santos family flies to New York, they get together with Gonzalez. Asked how he’d like locals to remember his brother, Ronald said: “He loved life. He lived it to the fullest.” Even while living and working in the U.S., Roy retained his Canadian citizenship, and was over the moon when he saw New York Rangers hockey superstar Wayne Gretzky, and got him to agree to pose for a photo with him. But shopping was always top of mind for Roy, and he was seemingly always buying gifts for family. Asked if they harbour any anger toward the perpetrators of 9/11, Ronald and Rosemarie said there’s no room in their hearts for hate. While Ronald said he was initially angry in the immediate aftermath of the acts of terror that day a decade ago, sadness and the sense of loss is what he now feels whenever he thinks of his brother. So when a news organization called the family earlier this year, asking how they felt about the death of Osama bin Laden, while it may have been American-served justice, it didn’t bring Roy back and brought them no comfort, Ronald said. “We’re not the kind of people who hate people,” Rosemarie said. “We believe that people by nature are good.” And as they get set to return to New York, and see the massive waterfall-themed memorial set at the precise spot where the two towers once stood, it comes with mixed emotions. They’ll never know for certain what happened to Roy. His genetic remains were never found. And that’s made finding closure difficult, and cast a heavy pall over the family. They are left with vivid memories of an eversmiling Roy, including one particularly joyous visit to a snow-blanketed Central Park in December 2000. “I think that’s the happiest moment,” Ronald said.

Canadian casualties Roy Santos was one of 25 Canadians who lost their lives during the 9/11 terror attacks on the United States. The families of Canadian victims have been invited by Consul General of Canada in New York John F. Prato for a special ceremony in New York City to mark the 10th anniversary of the tragedy.

9/11: 2 jets hadn’t responded to communication protocols Vancouver briefly feared as 9/11 target by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Ted Townsend’s ears perked up that tragic Tuesday morning at news that a plane had crashed into the twin towers in New York. The self-confessed newshound and former editor of The Richmond Review had only a year earlier been hired to head communications for the City of Richmond. So he listened closely to his radio after rolling out of bed, and then turned to his television. “I saw in shock and horror what was happening, as everybody else did in the world,” he said, adding that he watched the live news feed showing the second plane striking the south tower of the World Trade Center. But that was a continent away, and Townsend figured it had no bearing on his new job. That was until mid-morning, when he got a call that the city’s emergency operations centre was going to be activated. With four terror attacks involving hijacked airplanes in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania, American airspace was being shut down and planes were being diverted to Vancouver. But that wasn’t what triggered the emergency centre’s opening. It was fears about a pair of passenger jets bearing down on Vancouver that weren’t meeting their communication protocols. Officials were worried that those planes were no longer under the control of their flight crews, or that the pilots were working under duress. “There was some question as to whether they might have been potentially hijacked,” Townsend said. “Hearing that, all kinds of things run through your mind about the possibilities.” Not long after, it was learned that nothing was wrong with those planes, and there was no threat. But then came the realization that many planes with thousands of passengers would need to

be taken care of for an extended period of time. So the emergency centre shifted from crisis to relief modes. With planes originally scheduled to take off from

Vancouver now grounded, and dozens more diverted from other destinations and landing in Vancouver, efforts were being made to find accommodations for as many people as

possible in the hotel system. It was initially feared there weren’t enough available rooms, Townsend said. See Page 6

CITY OF RICHMOND NOTICE Notice of Road Closure and Removal of Road Dedication and Intent to Dispose of Land PUBLIC NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Council of the City of Richmond intends to adopt Bylaw 8710.

Worthy causes to hang hat on – policing model and jet fuel project By Derek Dang As Chair of the Community Safety Committee, I feel strongly that Richmond has a positive, Derek Dang seamless working Councillor relationship amongst service providers: Fire-Rescue, Ambulance, RCMP and Coast Guard. However, we are currently engaged in contract talks involving the RCMP and the Province and this I have some concerns about. Discussions include cost and terms of the contract; however, governance and who is in the lead is not discussed or even clear to the parties involved. Who is the master of Richmond’s RCMP detachment – Ottawa, Victoria, or the City? Richmond pays 90 per cent of the cost for RCMP policing but we don’t have a 90 per cent role in setting the local detachment’s direction – the provincial and federal government have the majority say and take precedence. The confusion is not at the local detachment level – the governance system is just not clear. When I requested a Police Model Review for the City, we asked if the RCMP is the best policing model for us – other options include a municipal/Metro force or a hybrid model. Our study was halted due to the Province’s engagement in current talks regarding a new RCMP contract and a promise to review the different policing models for BC. In light of the recent Vancouver riot (June 2011), there has been a renewed call for a unified police force for BC.

Clearly, the policing model has to be fixed before more people start to realize the real shortfalls of the current one. We have to show the courage to push for it and also accept it. Another topic I am dedicated to is Council’s protest to the recent jet fuel project in Richmond. It’s interesting to see movie star, Daryl Hannah, arrested for protesting against TransCanada Corporation’s proposed Keystone XL pipeline – to transport Alberta crude oil to refineries in Texas. At home in Richmond, I pause to reflect on our own protest of a proposed jet fuel pipeline, the Vancouver Airport Fuel Delivery Project. There has been a consistent message from City Council of a need to identify a better route. Our primary concerns are for human safety and the environment. While others have joined us in the groundswell of protest, it was Councillor Ken Johnston who first raised the alarms, quoted in the Vancouver Sun on April 13, 2010 saying, “A tonne of jet fuel will be offloaded and stored there with the potential for a mishap.” In actuality, the proponents initially approached the City in late 2009 and as early as that date, we have expressed concerns. The federal and provincial governments will make the final decisions on how to proceed. Our adamant position is on record and has contributed to the project proponents coming up with alternative proposals. Given the prevalence of natural disasters, I shudder to think we would go ahead and support a jet fuel storage and transportation project without our questions sufficiently answered.

The purpose of Bylaw 8710 is to authorize that the lands shown on the sketch plan below, approximately 2,985 square metres, be stopped up, cease to be public roads and the road dedications be removed. In addition, PUBLIC NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City intends to sell a portion of this closed road area totalling 2,843.6 square metres to Oval 3 Holdings Ltd. and Oval 4 Holdings Ltd., or their designates, for $4,591,275. Bylaw 8710 and the accompanying plans may be inspected at the City Clerk’s Office, 6th Floor, City Hall, 6911 No. 3 Road, Richmond, BC, between the hours of 8:15 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday (inclusive), except statutory holidays, commencing Friday, September 9, 2011 until Monday, September 26, 2011 (inclusive).

Chaplain recalls generosity of community

Amendment to the 5 Year Financial Plan (2011-2015) Bylaw No. 8707 The Community Charter requires that Council adopt a 5 Year Financial Plan each year prior to the adoption of the Annual Property Tax Rates Bylaw. The Community Charter also allows for amendments to the 5 Year Financial Plan. Subsequent to the adoption of the City’s 5 Year Financial Plan (2011-2015) Bylaw No. 8707 on April 11, 2011, additional opportunities and projects have emerged. The current expenditure bylaw does not include these amounts. Therefore the City is proposing to amend its 5 Year Financial Plan Bylaw. The proposed amendment to the 5 Year Financial Plan (2011-2015) Bylaw 8707, Amendment Bylaw 8809 is currently available in PDF format on the City’s website at www.richmond.ca (City Hall > Finance, Taxes & Budgets > Budgets & Financial Reporting > 5 Year Financial Plan).

From Page 5 So the city activated its emergency social services plan, and in doing so opened a reception centre where passengers could register and be directed to local shelters. Aside from beds and food, cell phones were being rounded up for passengers to contact loved ones. In the confusion, many passengers who were originally headed elsewhere didn’t know where they were. Some needed prescriptions filled, and many had no immediate access to

The City is required by the Community Charter to undertake a process of public consultation before the amendment is adopted by Council. We welcome your feedback via email to finance@richmond.ca or deliver to the Finance Division, Richmond City Hall, 6911 No. 3 Road, Richmond, V6Y 2C1. It is anticipated that Amendment Bylaw 8809 will be considered by Council for adoption at the Regular Council Meeting on September 26, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. in City Hall Council Chamber. Public delegations at the Council Meeting are also permitted with regard to this bylaw.

In the days that followed, the chief role of the city and its team of volunteers was to provide support for the first responders at the airport who were dealing with crowd control issues. Huge amounts of bottled drinking water were being shipped to the airport for passengers either sleeping in the terminal or waiting in unmoving lineups that snaked outside the terminal on what turned out to be a hot September week.

With the school year starting up again, drivers and pedestrians are reminded to pay extra attention in observing traffic regulations and safety tips, particularly around school zones and playgrounds. • The school zone speed limit is 30 km/h from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on weekdays. Drivers must slow down to 30 km/h before entering a school zone. • The playground zone speed limit is 30 km/h from dawn to dusk, seven days a week. • Do not stop in a “No Stopping” zone for any reason. “No Stopping” zones are designated in areas where a stopped vehicle could obstruct the visibility of other drivers and pedestrians and increase the likelihood of a traffic collision. • Yield the right-of-way to pedestrians at all crosswalks and intersections regardless of whether a crosswalk has special pavement markings, signs and/or a traffic signal. • When using a crosswalk, make sure all vehicles are stopped before stepping out on the roadway. By keeping safety as a top priority, we can all contribute to providing a safe and promising school year for our children.

gers was being widely broadcast by TV and radio news outlets, and locals shocked by what was happening were rallying into action. Fortunately for him, two of his volunteers that day carried cellular phones, meaning that Daggett’s landlines could be kept free for people ready to open their homes. “Our phones were ringing off the hook,” Daggett said. “It was like Charles Dickens...the worst of days, the best of days.” Daggett also put calls out to local church groups, community centres and organizations, from Broadmoor Baptist to the local Salvation Army, St. Paul’s Parish and Thompson Community Centre. In total, some 2,000 passengers who were unable to find accommodations in local hotels or preferred to stay in somebody’s home, were given a helping hand. Even those without space to offer were moved by the images on the TV screen. One woman took laundry home for people, did laundry and brought the items back. That was until her washing machine broke down. Then she gathered clothing and brought it to the laundromat. The outpouring of help and stories from the days that followed 9/11 won’t be soon forgotten, Daggett said. A group of people out of one of the churches in White Rock stepped forward and prepared 2,000 sandwiches. Dozens of passengers spent the night in the gymnasium at St. Paul’s Parish, with volunteers cooking meals, collecting bedding, pillows, blankets and chairs. Others were taken home by parishioners, including Jacquie Siemens, who provided shelter for one stranded passenger from China for 21 days after he lost his passport. They were part of a group of men—she believes they were engineers—heading for Texas when their passenger plane as intercepted near Los Angeles International Airport by American fighter jets and escorted to the Canadian border. More than 150 passengers from that airliner were given lodging and food. “They couldn’t believe people were doing this and not getting paid,” Siemens said.

Richmond cites its ‘good reputation within the Olympic family’ in hopes for getting museum

Better Grades Happier Kids Grade 1 - 12

From Page 1 That museum is preparing for a major renovation, which will close its doors for 20 months beginning early next year, opening up the possibility for Richmond to borrow Olympic artifacts. Richmond City Hall’s last attempt at building a museum came in 2009, when staff made a push for a $45-million destination museum to be modelled after Victoria’s Royal B.C. Museum. A permanent display dedicated to the 2010 Winter Games was envisioned as part of the facility. It came with a promise of funding from senior governments, but the idea fizzled with city council.

Spec

Staff invested months on the concept, spent thousands on research trips and $110,000 more on consulting fees before civic politicians had a change of heart, citing a challenging economy, other civic priorities and competition from other museums for tourism dollars. Costs for the latest proposal have yet to be tallied, and a contract has yet to be awarded to a design firm. But a city spokesperson said the Olympic museum isn’t related to the 2009 concept to replace the Richmond Museum, which remains on the priority list of capital projects at city hall. Townsend also emphasized Richmond’s drive for an Olympic

museum won’t impact that list because the project—proposed for space within the Richmond Olympic Oval’s walls—doesn’t require more city cash. He also noted Richmond’s “extremely good reputation within the Olympic family,” an image enhanced during the Games and recognized by IOC president Jacques Rogge in opening and closing speeches for the 2010 Winter Games. Said Townsend: “The Olympics has come to see Richmond as a model for venue cities. Based on that reputation and being a good partner during the Games, that’s providing us with these opportunities.”

ollowing the attacks on 9/11, the cover of The New Yorker symbolized the mood of much of the Western world. No photographs, no words, just two tones of black filled the front.

Bold, red lettering reading “September 11, 2011” was featured on the flap for newsstand issues, along with the words of Roger Angell: “Waking the next morning—was that sleep at any point?—you find the unwanted memory waiting... Waking comes and at first only that, and then the flood of what can’t be undone.” The magazine offered pause for thought then—and still does today, on the eve of an ominous anniversary. Sunday marks the 10th year since the terror attacks that brought a nation to its knees in anguish, only for it to quickly get up and fight back. What followed were questions about just who America was fighting in its War on Terror—and how effective the battles were. Those battles against what U.S. President Barack Obama has called “a far reaching network of violence and hatred” continue, and not just overseas. The 9/11 attacks brought about waves of change in the Western world. Personal privacy and freedoms in Canada have been altered significantly in the

so-called Post-9/11 era. Some changes, such as in airport security screening procedures, are for the better. Others, such as imperfect terror watch lists which target innocent people, are not. Laws have changed. The AntiTerrorism Act was a necessary evil in a more security-conscious society. The act criminalized terrorism and the act of support-

ing terrorism and gave security agencies new powers to prevent terrorism. It could be argued Canada is safer since then: there have been no major terror attacks here since 9/11 and terror plots have been discovered and thwarted. Nonetheless, Sunday’s anniversary is a time to reflect on that clear day in September—and

what has happened since. On North American soil a decade ago, thousands died in one day. Many more have lost their lives in wars that have followed, including 157 Canadian soldiers who have lost their lives in Afghanistan. Somehow, The New Yorker cover of 2001 seems appropriate even for today.

hen my eldest daughter turned two, I signed her up for a “Two’s Time” class so that she could meet other two-year-olds and I could get a bit of a break for an hour.

The Leisure Guide said “Lang Centre” and even though I’d lived in Richmond for over 30 years, I’d never heard of it. Figured it was a typo.

Well, to my surprise, nestled in beside the Richmond Public Market, was a small two-room community centre. Not only did Inara love Two’s Time, but I connected with a whole bunch of mums and we continue to stay in touch today. Some of us went on to the same preschool. Still others met up at future classes. We met through our kids but we’re now all friends. It just took a physical space to bring us together initially. That’s the power of a community centre. I was lucky to even get into the program. The demand for programming is huge for young children and that poor little community centre seems to be bursting at the seams. Why is it that the most densely populated area in Richmond gets the smallest facility? Poor City Centre has

been shafted, in my opinion, for a number of years. The fact that we’re able to pour all of our density into the downtown core so that you and I can continue to live in neighbourhoods with single detached homes means that we keep our green space while City Centre… well… just where are the parks in City Centre? But I’m glad to see that a new community centre is finally in the works and that the public is invited to participate in its creation. My only worry is that if people in the downtown core don’t show up, programming won’t meet their needs. I hope the advertisements I saw in The Review were also sent to our Chinese dailies. We know the majority of people living in the downtown core are Cantoneseand Mandarin-speaking.

But, we also have plenty of young people living in their first apartments, seniors taking advantage of easier mobility downtown, and young families whose parents commute using the Canada Line. Even though I don’t live in the City Centre, I’ll be at the meeting early on. I’m concerned about the lack of green space and what that is doing to the community downtown, especially youth. I’d also love to see more programming for kids. Why does Steveston Community Centre get everything? Where do teens in the core hang out? The library certainly isn’t for everyone. Whether you live downtown or not, make your opinion heard. An open house is on Sept. 14 in the Cultural Centre lobby. Mandarin- and Cantonese-speaking staff will also be there so spread

The truth about older white guys on a summer’s day Editor: I laughed out loud when I read Pamela Chen’s letter to The Review (Sept. 7), in which she stated that she was “extremely offended to see the racism that was presented as a headline.” This was in reference to a Aug. 31 Review article pertaining to the HST vote, which contained a quote by Mr. K.K. Wan. Anyway, my wife Jeanie heard me laughing and wanted to know what was so funny. Jeanie was born in Taiwan and speaks Mandarin, Min and flawless English. I briefly stated the issue regarding Mr. Wan’s ‘offensive’ quote: “The Chinese like to eat out a lot”. Jeanie replied “But it’s true!” As a long-term Richmond resident, I tend to concur with Jeanie’s statement, based upon my own local observations. And I would also like to take this opportunity to offer my opinion on a somewhat related topic: “Older white guys like to drink cold beer on hot summer days.” Feel free to quote me—I doubt that you’ll receive any complaints of racism. Jack Wootton Richmond

Rats among us

34th Annual Business Excellence Awards

Editor: With the plague of rented old-timers being torn down, rats are on the move. The available homes left for them are fewer and far between. The result is that they gather by the dozen in the older well-built houses after they are given their notice to vacate with the arrival of the first bulldozer. Other residents are also being squeezed out of our town, and that includes the raccoons, squirrels and skunks. Not much to survive on or to take shelter in those manicured bushes and half an inch of well trimmed weed patches. Should we make it compulsory for any new thing built to have one-third of the land free of structure or concrete slabs, and a minimum of tree decent size trees? Is it fair to leave Canadians pay the price by dealing with squirrels in the attic, rats in the basement and raccoons ramsacking their vegetable patches and fruit trees? Do we need a referendum to restore the quality of life, for everyone, especially our nature loving critters and the old residents who once made Richmond the best suburb of Vancouver to live in? M. Cooper Richmond

Who, me?

Insulted for being considerate Editor: What to do when a parent and toddler wander onto the ball field during some batting and fielding practice? How close to the action is considered safe for a toddler? What would happen if a softball hit a toddler in the head? This parent did not want to take any chances so he stopped

hitting balls and waved the parent and curious toddler off of the field—only to be called an ass and was reminded that it was a public park. It did not matter to the parent of the toddler that we were batting and fielding well before they came around. It did not matter that a stray ball could easily cause serious

injury to the toddler. So, if being a considerate parent to a stranger’s toddler is the same as being an ass; then I guess I’m an ass! What a wonderful world that we live in where putting the interests of strangers first is rewarded with obscenities. Richard Hong Richmond

TRAFFIC DELAYS— NO. 6 ROAD, RICHMOND

Careless fools should be car-less Editor: Re: “A car crusher would get their attention,” Letters, Sept. 7. I couldn’t agree more with Mr. Barnes that a car crusher would be a bright idea and that it will most certainly capture the attention of those careless fools who have endangered the surrounding drivers while performing that dangerous stunt race, therefore proving that they cannot be trusted with cars. Not only would a car crusher be a good idea, it would also be safer if

they had their licence suspended for a minimum of five years. Those careless fools have proved that they can afford expensive cars and large fines, but that they can’t afford to pay attention to important rules and common sense. And to their parents, shame on you for buying your foolish kids expensive cars without teaching them how to behave on the road first! If we give them a reasonable consequence, perhaps it will teach others not to do the same. Patrick Shr Richmond

back to school

Playground cash quickly revoked Westwind already has a playground Westwind Elementary School learned firsthand this week that the government giveth and the government taketh away. Announced last Friday as one of three Richmond schools to get a $50,000 grant toward new playground equipment, the Ministry of Education soon backtracked after it learned Westwind already had a fairly new playground. The reversal came after a resident raised concerns that the grants were supposed to be for schools that didn’t already have play equipment. A Ministry of Education spokesperson said the money will now go back into a pool of cash earmarked

for new playgrounds. Meanwhile two Richmond schools will still receive their $50,000 grants: Daniel Woodward Elementary School and École des Navigateurs. The province is spending $8 million over two years to support new, upgraded or replaced school playgrounds in the province. Premier Christy Clark made the announcement in Delta last week. “New playgrounds are not only a benefit for students at these three schools in Richmond, they are a benefit for all children living nearby,” Richmond East MLA Linda Reid said in a press release. “School playgrounds are vital to our community, and I hope to see many smiling faces on those monkey bars when the playgrounds are complete.”

How to take effective notes

A

student’s success in school is measured by the assignments completed and tests he takes. The students who garner the best grades and do well in class are often those who are effective listeners and note-takers. Professor Dennis Jertz of Seton Hall University

has said that taking lecture notes effectively is one of the skills students must learn to make the transition from high school to college careers. Notetaking is also necessary in the business world, making it a worthwhile skill to learn. Despite its importance in higher learning, not much study has gone into the correlation between note-taking and performance improvement. As a result,

statistics supporting the importance of effective note-taking do not exist. But it stands to reason that the student who takes good notes, and studies well from them, has a sporting chance to improve his or her grades over others with poor notes. It may not seem as such, but note-taking can almost be a lesson all its own. There are many systems of note-taking that a student can learn. These include using graphic representations to map out interconnected concepts. Outlines or charts can group terminology together with related ideas. There are other techniques that use cue words to trigger recollection of facts and dates. Mnemonic devices help recall information. Students can experiment with different methods until they find a system that works well and offers measurable success. No matter what method of note-taking

is used, adequate listening skills are necessary to take effective notes. This helps students transfer what the professor is saying into ideas that can be put down on paper. To improve notetaking skills, a student must first improve listening skills. •Sit up closer to the teacher or professor. This enables eye-to-eye contact that may help a student focus. It may also trigger visual clues to a professor to gauge whether the class is catching on or missing what’s being taught. •Remove distractions. When a student enters the classroom, he or she should be ready to learn. That means silencing mobile devices and gearing the mind toward the lessons. • Use an assistance device. Students who are prone to zoning out may want to ask permission to use a voice recorder. This way if key elements of the lesson are missed, they can be played back.

back to school

Grades 4–7

Easing back-to-school stress The B.C. Psychological Association is offering tips for parents and children as the summer comes to a close. •Get to know your neighbours. If your child is starting a new school, walk around your block and get to know the neighbourhood children. Try and set up a play date, or, for an older child, find out where neighbourhood kids might go to safely hang out, like the community pool, recreation centre or park. •Talk to your child. Asking your children about their fears or worries about going back to school will help them share their burden. Inquire as to what they liked about their previous school or grade and see how those positives can be incorporated into their new experience. •Empathize with your children. Change can be difficult, but also exciting. Let your children know that you are aware of what they’re going through and that you will be there to help them in the process. Nerves are normal, but highlight that not everything that is different is necessarily bad. It is important to encourage your children to face their fears instead of falling into the trap of encouraging avoidance. •Get involved and ask

YORK

for help. Knowledge of the school and the community will better equip you to understand your child’s surroundings and the transition he or she is undergoing. Meeting members of your community and school will foster support for both you and your child. If you feel the stress of the school year is too much for you and your child to handle on your own, seeking expert advice from a mental health professional, such as a psychologist, will help you better manage and cope. B.C. psychologists will be co-sponsoring

an information evening about separation anxiety in children on Sept. 12 to lighten the load of back-to-school stress. The event, free and open to the public, will be held at Vancouver Public Library and organized by the B.C. Psychological Association. According to the association’s vicepresident, parents should remember that their own anxiety about back to school issues is contagious. “If parents act out their own stress, then they are communicating to children both that an event is stressful and

that children should react in a certain way,” said Dr. Derek Swain. “On the other hand, if parents respond in a calm way, they convey the message that the event is manageable and that children can likewise respond calmly.” Stress parents face can compound as the new school year approaches. Things like finding cash for backto-school supplies, clothes and tuition can all cause worry. For more information about the Sept. 12 event, visit www. psychologists.bc.ca.

But not all sugar is created equal. Coconut sugar is relatively new to the North American market, although centuries old in Asian countries. Before I go on about this product, I warn you to be very careful when selecting coconut sugar for purchase. Some companies say palm sugar is coconut sugar (because it

comes from the coconut palm tree), but it isn’t. Read the labels carefully. You want just pure coconut palm sugar, not one that’s been de-natured (mixed with cane sugar). True coconut palm sugar is collected from the nectar of blossoms of the coconut tree (not from the coconut itself). It is “tapped” in the same way maple syrup is gathered. Traditional sugar farmers climb high into the canopy of swaying coconuts and harvest the sweet nectar by gently slicing the flower. Unlike refined sugar, coconut sugar is full of nutrients, especially high in potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron, and is a natural source of the vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6. And the best part— coconut sugar is naturally low on the glycemic index (GI), which has benefits for weight control and for people with diabetes type 1 and type 2. See Page 19

From Page 18 As well, it’s unprocessed, unfiltered, unbleached, 100 per cent organic, no preservatives, and is a natural sweetener adaptable to all recipe development and menu planning. If a recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar—use 1 cup of coconut sugar instead. It is delicious, rich, and not too sweet. Sherlock Lim, managing director of Richmond’s ONEearth Functional Foods, said that in his 30 years in Canada he never saw the coconut sugar he grew up with in the Philippines. He watched as coconut water entered the marketplace and did well with health-conscious shoppers, so he thought they might like coconut sugar as well.

Being pregnant gave Steveston’s Beth and Ben Fairchild first-hand experience finding clothes and accessories for mom and baby. They didn’t put their extensive research and familiarity with the products to waste. Two weeks ago the couple opened Steveston Village Maternity on Moncton Street, in the heart of a village seemingly bursting with young families. The retail store is a maternity and baby boutique that carries products from Canada and around the world. Customers can find maternity wear, baby clothing, nursing products, swaddle blankets, baby carriers, diaper bags and anything else the stork forgot to bring. “Our goal is if If they come to us for their maternity needs, they’ll come to us afterwards too for their baby needs,” said Beth, 32, a teacher and now mom to four-month-old Emi. Beth was pregnant while the couple was in the throws of organizing the new business, an idea that grew from their challenge in finding good quality maternity and baby products. “Beth wanted a place where people could come into and have a good experience, feel like they were special and get products maybe you can’t get in other places,” said Ben, 35, a former professional snowboarder. While her husband is originally from the United States, Beth’s ties to Steveston date to childhood, with weekly visits to the fishing village, where her

grandparents lived. Seeing Steveston as an ideal place to raise a family, the couple settled here a year ago. It also proved the perfect fit for their business as they noticed few, if any, retail options for moms-to-be and new parents. Inside, customers can find everything from Preggie Pops (lollipops and lozenges made for pregnant women to keep nausea at bay) to Ergo baby carriers, Hooter Hiders (nursing covers) to Woombie swaddle blankets. Many customers so far aren’t even expecting. “It’s the perfect place for people looking for the perfect shower gift,” said Beth. “The majority of people through the door already have just been looking for a nice gift.” And of course, Steveston Village Maternity also boasts several lines of clothing for pregnant moms and their soon-to-be family additions. The shop especially caters to women who want to wear maternity clothes longer than just a few months. “The trend is you want during and after clothes,” said Beth. “All these things that we have, they can wear after as well. There’s not too many things you look at and say, ‘I’m only going to wear this when I’m pregnant.’” Steveston Village Maternity is located at 110-3911 Moncton St., near No. 1 Road.

and we could never do it without the help of our generous volunteers, sponsors and donors.” Jennifer adds. “In particular, we hope that people will realize how big a difference only they can make as we are not considered an ‘essential service’ by our cities or government. We are beseeching people to step forward and help. “Even five or ten dollars makes a huge difference when we have help from a whole community.” To help animals like Peanut, please consider registering for this year’s 2011 Scotiabank Paws for a Cause Walk for the Animals or make a donation today!

Sports Editor After a couple of years away from the sidelines, Bruce Haddow is back as coach of Hugh Boyd’s Grade 8 high school football team. But he’s discovered that like the school’s junior and senior teams, numbers—or more accurately a lack of—will play a big role in the Trojans’ fate this season. “We’re at 24 players but I expect a

few more to come out,” he said. “We made a conscious effort to get most of the students before school started because of everything (is new) for the Grade 8s.” While the total is low, it still represents about one-third of the 70 or so Grade 8 boys enrolled at Hugh Boyd this year. Haddow said compare that with the roughly 70 players out of 200 Grade 8 boys at Vancouver College high school and the percentages are no different.

With a roster size of just 19 players, the Hugh Boyd Trojans showed in their opening game of the 2011 B.C. high school AA junior football campaign they can still be a gridiron force, defeating the Pitt Meadows Marauders 33-7 Wednesday in Richmond. “I wasn’t sure what to expect,” said Trojans’ head coach Brock Aura, who takes over the helm this season from Pete Adams.

If you are a newly registered player or just someone that might want to play either this season or in the near future then we want to see you! COME AND TRY SOCCER THIS SATURDAY Sept. 10th 2-3:30 at Hugh Boyd Soccer Complex (South East corner near Community Center. Have some fun, play some games, meet some new friends and sign up). 4-6 year old program - Both the girls and the boys fall program (Sept-Mar) for 4 - 6 year olds is run under the direction of Coach Dougie Gordon and his staff. Professional and certified coaches will be on the field for all practices and games and practices go into the Richmond Oval from November to February. There is still lots of space available for 4-6 year old players as well as 7-11 year old girls and limited space for all other programs (Boys and girls). See you Saturday – dress appropriately. admin@richmondsoccer.com - boys admin@richmondgirlssoccer.com - girls

of things for kids to do, but I also think the demand by some sports to go year-round is hurting all sports,” he said. “Playing one sport 10 to 12 months a year is wrong. Ask Steve Nash who was out playing soccer in high school when he wasn’t playing basketball. You should be playing as many sports as you can, but I guess they’re specializing now at a younger age and I think that’s hurting everybody.” Bill Haddow, who coaches Hugh Boyd’s senior football team, blames the “techno age.” “It’s let’s get in front of a computer or look at my phone,” he said. “It’s tough to compete against the those gizmos, but we keep fighting the fight.” One senior player said some of his peers opted not to play because they aren’t willing to make the commitment needed— particularly to practice. “It’s hard work, and not just in football,” said Bruce Haddow. “I think it might help if there wasn’t so much pressure on them.” Haddow said his goal with the Grade 8s at Hugh Boyd is to help them improve each practice. “They’re really competitive kids and they want to win just as bad as the others, but our focus is on teaching them the fundamentals so that when they move up they know what they’re doing,” he said. “If they play five years of Trojan football then that’s success.”

Boyd tackling Panthers tonight The Hugh Boyd Trojans head into tonight’s season opener against Surrey’s Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers hoping to do more with less. With just 24 players, a decline of 30 per cent from last season, coach Bill Haddow knows the Trojans will be playing on the edge. But he’s confident they’re more than capable of

will try to minimize that as much as possible. Coming off a 2011 season in which they managed just a single tie in five games, the Trojans are hungry, said Haddow. He said that hunger has been further fuelled by the addition of the Grade 11s who reached the provincial semifinals last season as juniors. “This is a great group of guys who are working really hard,� he

said. “We’re coming off a great week of two-aday practices.� Quarterback Tiernan Docherty is the key among a small, but talented core of athletes. Besides football, he represented the school in basketball, volleyball and track and field last year.

“He’s a special athlete and hopefully we’ll be able to count on him,� said Haddow who is also expecting big contributions from running back Matt Adams, Travis Coutts and Ainsley Albania.

I have big shoes to fill there, but I (also) know a lot of these guys from coaching Grade 8 last year and I know they’re hard workers and are going to give everything they can.” Aura is also familiar with many of the Grade 10s, including several of the linemen who as Grade 8s led Hugh Boyd to the provincial final two years ago. The Trojans are blessed physically on the line, potentially enabling

OBITUARIES

CUMMINGS, Grant Murray April 5, 1949 - Sept. 1, 2011

It is with profound sadness we say goodbye to Grant, son of the late Percy and Marjorie (nee Whyte) of Calgary. He passed at the Peace Arch Hospital, White Rock, BC, after a recent diagnosis of cancer. Grant will be deeply missed by his wife, Darlene, his daughters Lesley and Allison Halseth (Craig), and his first granddaughter Elizabeth. He is also survived by his brother Dale (Lynne), nephew Mark, niece Michelle and their families. He will be remembered by his stepsons Brent Larmet, Devin Larmet (Frances), and step granddaughter Kira. Grant also leaves behind an extended family of aunts, uncles, and cousins. After 35 years as an air traffic controller, Grant retired in 2006. He became an avid curler and in the off season enjoyed playing golf. Grant and Darlene were a devoted dance couple and she will forever miss her wonderful dance partner. As per his wishes there was no formal service. A family gathering in celebration of his life was held at his home on September 5. In lieu of flowers, Grant requested that any donations be made to the White Rock Hospice Society. www.whiterockhospice.org 15510 Russell Ave. White Rock, B.C., V4B 2R3.

Richmond’s Hassan Pharah (left), Fatima M. Ali (centre) and Steveston’s Muna Jimale are encouraging the public to support a fundraiser for Somali children. Members of StepUp Vancouver, a youth led initiative, will walk from Vancouver to Seattle between Sept. 15 to 17 to raise funds for UNICEF Somalia. The funds raised during the 49-hour, 198-km walk will be used by UNICEF to deliver supplementary feeding services to more than a million Somali children on the brink of death due to starvation. On July 20, the United Nations declared a state of Famine in Somalia, following a prolonged drought, leaving millions at risk of starvation. “Children should be our highest priority,” says Jimale, who is organizing StepUp Vancouver. “We are appealing to organizations, businesses and persons to join this emergency response and sponsor our walk.” For more information or to donate, see http://bit.ly/plsf6t.
